IMPORTANT FACTS
Your furnace must have adequate
airflow for efficient combustion
and safe ventilation. Do not
enclose it in an airtight room or
“seal” it behind solid doors.
To minimize the possibility of
serious personal injury, fire, furnace damage, or improper operation, carefully follow
these
safety rules:
FOR YOUR SAFETY
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquids in the
vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the furnace and to replace any part of the
control system, electrical components, and any oil control which
has been under water.
NOTE: The qualified installer or
agency must use only factoryauthorized replacement parts, kits,
and accessories when servicing
this product.
The furnace burner control has a
safety device which must be manually reset. If the furnace is left
unattended for an extended period
of time, have it checked periodically for proper operation. This
precaution will prevent problems
associated with no heat, such as
frozen water pipes, etc.
SAFETY
CONSIDERATIONS
3
• Do not cover the furnace, store
trash or debris near it, or in any way
block the flow of fresh air to the
unit.
• Combustion air must be clean and
not contaminated with chlorine or
fluorine. These compounds are
present in many products around
the home, such as: water softener
salts, laundry bleaches, detergents,
adhesives, paints, varnishes, paint
strippers, waxes, and plastics.
Make sure the combustion air for
your furnace does not contain any
of these compounds. During remodeling be sure the combustion
air is fresh and uncontaminated. If
air with vapors of these compounds is burned in your furnace,
the heat exchangers and metal vent
system may deteriorate.
NOTE: Do not use this furnace if
any part has been under water.
Installing and servicing of heating
equipment can be hazardous due to
oil and electrical components.
Only trained and qualified personnel should install, repair, or service
heating equipment.
Untrained personnel can perform
basic maintenance functions such as
cleaning and replacing air filters. All
other operations must be performed
by trained service personnel.
Observe safety precautions in this
manual, on tags, and on labels
attached to the furnace and other
safety precautions that may apply.
Recognize safety information.

STARTING YOUR
FURNACE
This appliance is equipped with an
ignition device which automatically lights the burner each time the
thermostat starts your furnace. Follow these important safeguards:
! WARNING
EXPLOSION HAZARD
Failure to follow this warning
could result in property damage or personal injury or
death.
This furnace is equipped with
a constant type primary ignition system. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LIGHT WITH A
MATCH.

! DANGER
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD HIGH VOLTAGE AT
IGNITER.
Severe electrical shock, personal injury, or death could
result.
• If a suspected malfunction occurs
with your oil control system, such as
the burner not lighting when it
should, refer to the “Shutting Down
Your Furnace” section and call your
dealer as soon as possible.
6
6. Open oil supply valve.
(See Fig. 7.)
CHECK AIR FILTER: Before
attempting to start your furnace, be
sure the furnace air filter is clean
and in place. See “Performing Routine Maintenance” section in this
manual. Then proceed as follows:
STEPS FOR STARTING
YOUR FURNACE
1. Open all warm air registers and
make sure that all return-air
grills are unobstructed.
2. If a humidifier is installed with
your system, open water supply
valve.
3. Make sure blower access door is
secured in place.
4. Set your room thermostat to
lowest temperature setting.
(See Fig. 5.)
®
5
5. Turn on electric power to
furnace. (See Fig. 6.)
7
7. Check all connections to ensure
there are no leaks.
8. Set room thermostat to a temperature slightly above room
temperature. This will automatically signal the furnace to
start.
9. When the thermostat calls for
heat, power from the transformer energizes the fan control
board. The fan control energizes the ignition control. The
ignition control will automatically light the burner.
The electronic fan control automatically turns on the blower.
The air moved over the heat exchanger by the blower is
warmed and passes through the
ducts to the room registers.
This unit is equipped with continuous ignition control. If the
main burner does not ignite
within 30 sec from the call for
heat, the control will lock out.
The red button on top of the
control must be depressed for 3
sec in order to reset the control.
5
The control CANNOT be reset
from the room thermostat.
10. Set your thermostat to the temperature that satisfies your comfort requirements. SUGGESTION: Setting the thermostat
back a few degrees and compensating for the difference with
warmer clothing can make a big
difference in your fuel consumption on extremely cold days. The
few degrees at the top of your
thermostat “comfort level” are
the most costly degrees to obtain.
When room temperature drops
below temperature selected on
the thermostat, the furnace will
be switched on automatically.
When room temperature reaches
the degree selected on the thermostat, the furnace will be
switched off automatically.
Some thermostats have a FAN
mode with 2 selections, AUTO
and ON. When thermostat is set
to AUTO, the furnace blower
cycles on and off, controlled by
the thermostat. In ON mode,
the furnace blower runs continuously. This keeps the temperature level in your home more
evenly balanced. It also continuously filters indoor air.
SHUTTING DOWN
YOUR FURNACE
Should you need to shut down your
furnace for service or maintenance, you will need to turn the
furnace off. The following procedures must be followed:
1. Set thermostat to lowest setting.
(See Fig. 8.)
®

A CHECK-UP
CHECKLIST
Your furnace represents an important investment in your family’s
comfort and your home’s value. To
keep it performing properly and as
a preventative to future problems,
have a trained service specialist
give your furnace a professional
check-up annually. The following
checklist can be used as a guideline
to proper service:
• Check flue and secondary tube
passage ways including chimney —
clean if necessary.
• Change oil filter.
• Change nozzle.
• Check and adjust combustion and
draft.
• Inspect all vent piping inside structure for deterioration and vent terminations outside the structure for
blockage.
• Check oil pipes leading to and
inside of your furnace for leaks.
• Inspect and clean the blower motor
and wheel.
• Inspect and change or clean air filter if necessary.
• Inspect all supply- and return-air
ducts for obstructions, air leaks, and
insulation. Remedy any problem
when necessary.
• Inspect the return-air duct connections at the furnace to ensure it is
physically sound, sealed to the furnace casing, and terminates outside
the space containing the furnace.
• Inspect electrical wiring, connections, and components for loose
connections.
• Examine the physical support of
the furnace. Support should be
sound with no cracks, sagging, gaps,
etc. around the base.
• Check furnace for any obvious
signs of deterioration.
BEFORE YOU REQUEST
A SERVICE CALL
If your furnace is not operating or
not performing properly, you may
save the expense of a service call
by checking a few things yourself
before calling for service.
FOR INSUFFICIENT AIRFLOW:
• Check for dirty air filters.
• Check for blocked return-air or
7
supply-air grilles throughout your
home. Ensure they are open and
unobstructed.
If problem still exists, call your
dealer for service.
IF FURNACE FAILS TO
OPERATE:
Follow this checklist step by step,
advancing to the next step only if
furnace fails to start.
• Check thermostat for proper temperature. Is thermostat set above
room temperature?
• Is thermostat set on HEAT?
• Check fuses and circuit breakers.
Is electrical supply on?
• Is valve in oil supply pipe in open
position?
• Is the ignition control on the burner not in lockout? The red button on
top of the control must be depressed
for 3 sec in order to reset the control.
• Check for obstructions around the
vent termination.
If furnace still fails to operate, call
your service representative. For
your convenience, record furnace
