WARNING
CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal
injury and/or death.
Carbon Monoxide is invisible, odorless, and toxic! Bryant
Heating & Cooling Corporation recommends a carbon
monoxide alarm in your home, even if you do not own a
gas appliance. Locate the carbon monoxide alarm in the
living area of your home and away from gas appliances and
doorways to attached garages. Follow the alarm
manufacturer’s instruction included with the alarm.
SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
Recognize safety information. This is the safety--alert symbol
.
When you see this symbol on the furnace and in instructions or
manuals, be alert to the potential for personal injury.
Understand the signal words: DANGER, WARNING, and
CAUTION. DANGER identifies the most serious hazards which
will result in severe personal injury or death. WARNING signifies
hazards which could result in personal injury or death. CAUTION
is used to identify unsafe practices which may result in minor
personal injury or product and property damage. NOTE is used to
highlight suggestions which will result in enhanced installation,
reliability or operation.
To minimize the possibility of serious personal injury, fire, furnace
damage, or improper operation; carefully follow these safety
rules:
S Your gas furnace uses air from outside the home for combustion
and vents flue gas to the outdoors. It is not to be installed using
indoor air for combustion. The vent pipe must terminate outside
the structure and must not be obstructed in any way. The
air--intake pipe must terminate outside the structure or in a well
ventilated area that is isolated from the living space and the
garage (e.g. well ventilated attic or crawlspace). Do not block or
obstruct air openings on furnace or spaces around furnace.
S Keep the area around your furnace clear and free of combustible
materials, gasoline, and other flammable liquids and vapors.
Do not use this furnace if any part has been under water. A
flood--damaged furnace is extremely dangerous. Attempts to
use the furnace can result in fire or explosion. A qualified
service agency should be contacted to inspect the furnace
and to replace all gas controls, control system parts,
electrical parts that have been wet or the furnace if deemed
necessary.

Fig. 1 -- Water Heater Draft Hood
a. Match flame pulls toward draft hood.
This indicates no spillage and that appliance is getting
enough air for combustion. Return exhausting devices
and appliances to the condition in which you found
them.
b. Match goes out or flame wavers away from draft hood.
This indicates spillage and that appliance is not getting
enough air for combustion.
New materials and methods are being used in construction and
remodelingwhich result in lower energy costs for heating and
cooling. It may also mean your appliances may not be getting
enough air for combustion and ventilation of flue gases. The use of
exhaust fans, fireplaces, clothes dryers, and other appliances
consume air or vent it to the outdoors.
If the gas appliances or heating furnace can’t get enough air, two
conditions may result:
1. The appliances or furnace may produce carbon monoxide
gas.
2. The appliance may not vent flue gases properly. The following are signs that your appliances may not be getting
enough air for proper combustion.
!
CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal injury
or death.
Be aware of these signals:
Draft hood spillage means there is not enough air for proper
combustion and carbon monoxide may be present.
1. Headaches, Nausea, Dizziness
2. Excessive humidity----heavily frosted windows or a moist
“clammy” feeling in the structure.
3. Smoke from the fireplace won’t draw up the chimney.
!
WARNING
Keep a window open (a minimum of 2” or 50.8mm) near the
appliance until a permanent combustion air duct is installed.
Contact a qualified service agency.
If draft hood spillage is indicated:
1. Check for plugged vent connectors and chimneys. Repair
stoppage and test again.
2. If you have a fireplace, open a window or door near the fireplace and then check for spillage. If spillage stops, do not
use the fireplace until you can supply fresh air by a permanent duct.
3. If you have kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans, turn them
OFF and check for spillage. If spillage stops, do not use exhaust fans until you can supply fresh air by a permanent
duct. Circuit breakers for fans should be turned off and
marked as to why they are off.
4. Spillage means air starvation and that an outdoor air duct or
air intake must be installed to provide air directly to the area
around the furnace. This duct or intake MUST comply with
local and state building codes or in their absence with the
National Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1--2006 in
the U.S., or the National Standard of Canada, Natural Gas
and Propane Installation Code CSA B--149.1--2006 in
Canada.
CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning could result in personal injury
or death.
If you experience headaches, nausea, or dizziness, carbon
monoxide may be present. Leave the house immediately and
call your gas supplier.
Combustion Air Checks
If any of the above signals are noticed, perform a combustion air
check or call a qualified service agency. If you add weather
stripping, storm windows, insulation, an additional fuel burning
appliance, or remodel the structure, a combustion air check MUST
be accomplished after the addition.
Make the inspection as follows:
1. Close all doors and windows. If you have a fireplace, start a
fire and wait until flames are burning vigorously.
2. Turn on all exhausting devices, such as: kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans and dryers (gas or electric).
3. Turn on all vented gas appliances, such as: heating equipment (includes any room heaters) and water heaters.
4. Wait ten (10) minutes for drafts to stabilize.
5. On appliances with a draft hood, check for spillage by holding a lighted match 2” (50.8mm)from the draft hood open-
WARNING
Indoor Humidity (Your Comfort)
Relative humidity is important to your health. Proper
humidification helps cut down incidences of respiratory illness. Air
that is too wet may damage the building structure. Air that is too
dry is uncomfortable. A quick way to test for proper humidity is as
follows:
1. Look for frequent fogging or excessive condensation on the
inside of windows. This indicates the indoor humidity level
is too high for outdoor weather conditions.

furnace will shut off. The blower will continue to run until the
furnace cools down.
Thermostat
There are many types and styles of thermostats. Most thermostats
control both heating and cooling functions and have a Fan Switch
with AUTO and ON settings. On AUTO, the Circulating Air
Blower will cycle on/off with the furnace on the heating speed
unless a call for cooling is initiated. Blower speed will correspond
to the mode of operation of the furnace. If the Fan Switch is
positioned to ON the blower will run continuously.
In addition some thermostats are programmable with multiple set
backs. The set backs can be pre--programmed to lower or raise the
temperature automatically.
Be sure to become familiar with your thermostat.
Rating Plate
The rating plate contains important information for the service
technician and lists the complete model, manufacturing and serial
numbers. You should always provide all these numbers when
requesting parts or if you need service. See Fig. 2 for rating plate
location.
Door Interlock Switch
All the electrical power for the furnace goes through the door
interlock switch. The interlock switch interrupts electrical power to
the furnace when the blower door is removed. The furnace will not
operate until the blower door is reinstalled.
Circulating Air Blower
Furnace Control
The blower circulates room air through the furnace, air ducts, and
into the rooms of the structure. The blower can be set at the
thermostat for automatic or manual operation. In manual mode the
blower operates continuously. In automatic, the blower does not
come on until a preset time after the gas valve is energized. When
the structure reaches the temperature set on the thermostat, the
The furnace control provides power to the circulating air blower to
keep it on until the furnace cools down.
The fan off--delay setting can be adjusted if the fan remains on long
enough that cool drafts are felt in the room after the furnace shuts
off.

2. Drop three ice cubes into a glass of water and stir. If, within
three minutes, moisture does not form on the glass, the air is
too dry and a humidifier would be beneficial. (Do not perform this test in the kitchen, cooking vapors may produce
inaccurate results.)
A good relative humidity is one just high enough to barely start
condensation along the lower edges or lower corners of the
windows, when it is cold outside. More than that can be damaging.
If the humidity is too high, try these suggestions to lower the
humidity:
1. Reduce setting or discontinue use of humidifier.
2. Use range and bathroom exhaust fans while cooking and
bathing. Open a door or window for a few minutes to bring
in cool drier air.
3. Cook with pans covered.
4. Take shorter baths or showers with cooler water.
5. Install a fresh air intake duct. Cold, dry air brought in from
outside to the furnace area lowers the indoor humidity level.
6. Have appliances checked. A malfunctioning appliance can
contribute water vapor to the structure.
7. If the problem continues, consult a heating contractor about
adding a heat recovery ventilator or air--to--air heat exchanger.
359BAV
The off--delay is set by moving a set of switches on the control.
The Wiring Diagram located on the inside of the blower door
shows the various delay combinations. Refer to Fig. 2 for location
of the control.
If you are unsure how to set the Off--delay Control, contact a
Qualified Service Agency.
Set the room thermostat slightly above room temperature. This will
automatically signal the furnace to start. The inducer motor will
start, and the hot surface igniter will have an orange glow. After
about 32 seconds (from the call for heat at the thermostat), the gas
valve permits gas to flow to the main burners where it is ignited.
When the flame is firmly established, the igniter shuts off. Hot
flames begin to warm the furnace’s heat exchanger. After a time
delay of 30 seconds (45 seconds for low--stage), the furnace blower
is switched on.
NOTE: If the main burners fail to ignite, the furnace control
system will go through 3 more ignition cycles. Then, if burners fail
to ignite, the system will lockout. If lockout occurs, or the blower
doesn’t come on, shut down your furnace and call a Qualified
Service Agency for service.
Turning Off The Furnace
Set the thermostat to the lowest temperature setting or set System
Select Switch to OFF, if so equipped.
Should overheating occur or the gas control valve fail to shut
off, shut off the manual equipment shutoff valve to the furnace
before shutting off the electrical supply.
Extended Shutdown
1. Set thermostat to lowest temperature setting or set thermostat System Select Switch to OFF, if so equipped.
2. Turn Manual Equipment Shutoff Valve for furnace to OFF
position (at right angle or 90_ to gas line).
3. Turn OFF electric power to the furnace at the disconnect
switch or circuit breaker. (May be left ON for set--back type
thermostat with batteries, provided thermostat has system
select switch placed in the OFF position.)
4. Remove the burner compartment door by removing the two
(2) screws securing the door in front and lifting the door up
and outwards. Removing the door will expose the gas control valve knob.
5. Turn the the gas control valve to the OFF position. See Fig.

WARNING
CAUTION
PROPERTY DAMAGE HAZARD
Failure to follow this caution may result in property damage
Furnace may shut down. Do not leave your home unattended
for long periods during freezing weather without turning off
water supply and draining water pipes or otherwise protecting
against the risk of frozen pipes.
Your furnace is designed solely to provide a safe and comfortable
living environment. The furnace is NOT designed to ensure that
water pipes will not freeze. It is equipped with several safety
devices that are designed to turn the furnace off and prevent it from
restarting in the event of various potentially unsafe conditions.
If your furnace remains off for an extended time, the pipes in your
home could freeze and burst, resulting in water damage. If the
structure will be unattended during cold weather, you should take
these precautions.
1. Turn off the water supply to the structure and drain the water lines if possible and add an antifreeze for potable water
to drain traps and toilet tanks. Open faucets in appropriate
areas.

weather to make sure it is warm enough to prevent pipes
from freezing. Instruct them to call a qualified service
agency to call to provide service, if required.
--or-3. Install a reliable remote sensing device that will notify
somebody of freezing conditions within the home.
Air Filters/Monthly
The air filter(s) should be inspected at least monthly and cleaned or
replaced as required. There are many types of filters that are
commonly used. Washable filters (constructed of aluminum mesh,
foam, or reinforced fibers) may be cleaned by soaking in mild
detergent and rinsing with water. The fiberglass disposable type
should be REPLACED before it becomes clogged. Other filter
types should be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s
recommendations.
Remember that dirty filters are the most common cause of
inadequate heating or cooling performance.
Winter Shutdown (90+ Furnaces)
Replacement Filters
If you go away during the winter months and do not leave the heat
on in your home, the plastic transition box and the condensate trap
on the furnace must be protected from freeze damage. (See Fig. 2)
1. Disconnect the 1/2” I.D. rubber hose from the vent drain fitting (or tee) that is located downstream of the combustion
blower. Insert a funnel into the hose and pour four (4)
ounces of sanitary type (RV) antifreeze into the condensate
trap. Reconnect the 1/2” I.D. rubber hose to the stub on the
vent drain fitting. Secure with the hose clamp.
2. Disconnect the 5/8” I.D. rubber hose from the condensate
trap. Insert a funnel into the hose and pour four (4) ounces
of sanitary type (RV) antifreeze into the plastic transition
box. Squeeze the hose together near the end and quickly reconnect the 5/8” I.D. rubber hose to the stub on the condensate trap. Secure with the hose clamp.
3. When you return home, your furnace will be ready to start,
as it is not necessary to drain the antifreeze from the furnace.
If the filter is not located at or within the furnace, it should be
located somewhere in the return--air duct system.
The recommended sizes and types of filters that may be used with
your furnace are based on the furnace’s heating gas input rate (and
cooling system capacity, if so equipped).
Replacement filters should be of the same type and size as the
original filters, to ensure adequate air flow and filtering. A
disposable low velocity filter can be replaced with a washable high
velocity type. Do not replace a high velocity filter with a
disposable low velocity filter, except as permitted below.
If a cleanable (high--velocity) filter(s) is to be replaced with a
disposable (low--velocity) filter(s), the airflow area of the filter(s)
must be doubled (i.e., a second filter of the same size must be
installed so that only half of the air goes through each filter). A
second return--air duct to the furnace may be required in which to
install the second filter. Modification of a furnace installation shall
comply with the local installation code and the furnace installation
instructions, and shall be made only by a Qualified Service
Agency.
NOTE: Some filters are marked with an arrow to indicate the
proper direction of air flow through the filter. The air flow
direction will be towards the blower motor. Make sure filter is
installed correctly.
Furnace Maintenance
Have your furnace inspected and serviced on an annual basis
(before the heating season) by a qualified service agency.
