Congratulations; you are ready to begin enjoying the benefits of one of the most popular kerosene (paraffin)
heaters ever made. TOYOTOMI, the leader in kerosene (paraffin) heater techonlogy, has tested and refined the
Omni 230 to assure you of long-term safety and satisfaction. Please study the following instructions, use and care
for your heater carefully, and it will serve you well for many years.
SAFETY TIPS
BEFORE OPERATING YOUR HEATER, PLEASE review these safety tips:
WARNING
RISK OF EXPLOSION
1. NEVER use any fuel other than clean kerosene (paraffin).
NEVER use gasoline (petrol). Use of gasoline (petrol) can lead to uncontrollable flames resulting
in a destructive fire. Even kerosene (paraffin) contaminated with small amounts of gasoline
(petrol), or similarly volatile materials, can be hazardous. NEVER use a can for kerosene
(paraffin) that has previously been used for gasoline (petrol), paint thinner, or solvents.
2. NEVER refill heater fuel tank when heater is operating or still hot. To do so may cause a
“flash back“ of flame to the fuel container, resulting in injury to yourself and your property.
3. NEVER use heater in areas where flammable vapors or gases may be present.
Especially avoid use of heater where gasoline (petrol), naphtha, acetone or other volatile
solvents are in the air, or whose containers are open. Such vapors could be ignited by
the heater, resulting in fire and/or explosion.
4. NEVER fill heater fuel tank in living space. Fill heater tank outdoors. NEVER overfill your
heater. Always replace heater tank cap securely after refueling. Spillage of kerosene
(paraffin) produces strong odor which is hard to remove. Spillage on carpet can be
ignited if match or some other ignition source contacts it.
5. NEVER store or transport kerosene (paraffin) in other than a metal or plastic container that is
(1) acceptable for kerosene (paraffin), (2) non-red in color, and (3) clearly marked,
“KEROSENE (PARAFFIN)”. NEVER store kerosene (paraffin) in the living space. Picking up a
gasoline (petrol) can by mistake when fueling is a major cause of heater fires.
WARNING
RlSK OF BURNS OR FIRE
1. Observe the heater carefully for 15-20 minutes after start-up. Problems of improper
adjustment of wick height or improperly seated heat chamber should become evident
during this warm up period.
NOTE: Carefully follow the instructions for lighting and adjusting the flame.
2. Due to high surface temperatures, keep away from children, furniture and clothing.
1
Omni 230 Type C_US.qxd 14.8.1 13:15 ページ 2
3. DO NOT operate heater without protective guards completely attached.
4. DO NOT use heater to heat or boil water or as a cooking appliance. DO NOT place
cooking utensils, tea kettles or any other object on top of heater while in operation.
5. To avoid possible burns or fire, do not move, refuel or attempt to service your heater
while it is burning or still hot. If the heater is dropped while it is burning, fuel spillage and
flames outside the heater may occur.
6. DO NOT operate heater less than one (1) meter from walls, draperies, clothing, or
furniture. The operation of any heating appliance too close to such materials could cause
them to ignite, possibly resulting in a serious fire.
7. To avoid unstable burning, do not operate your heater in areas exposed to strong drafts.
DO NOT operate heater in high-traffic areas such as doorways or hallways where it may
be touched, jarred or tipped accidentally.
8. DO NOT operate heater in direct sunlight to avoid overheating, which may cause
abnormal flame behaivor. DO NOT allow room temperature to go above 25-30˚C. lf the
room temperature exceeds 25-30˚C the flame may increase, thereby producing smoke.
9. Before going out, or at bedtime, turn the heater off, making sure the wick is in its lowest
position (see EXTINGUISHING THE FLAME on page 10) and flame is completely
extinguished.
WARNING
RISK OF INDOOR AIR POLLUTlON
Use heater only in well-ventilated areas. People with breathing problems should consult a
physician before using the heater.
“In a house of typical construction, that is, one that is not of unusually tight construction due
to heavy insulation and tight seals against air infiltration, an adequate supply of air for
combustion and ventilation is provided through infiltration. However, if the heater is used in
a small room where less than 200 cubic feet (5.7m3) of air space is provided for each
1,000Btu per hour of heater rating (considering the maximum burner adjustment), the
door(s) to adjacent room(s) should be kept open or a window to the outside should be
opened at least 1 inch (25.4mm) to guard against potential buildup of indoor air pollution.
DO NOT use the heater in a bathroom or any other small room with the door closed.”

FUEL GUIDE
The Omni 230 is designed for use with high-quality kerosene (paraffin) only. Use of low-quality kerosene (paraffin)
will cause wick performance to drop, leading to “Iow flame” and “odor problem” conditions.
Purchase only kerosene (paraffin) in non-red cans reserved exclusively for kerosene (paraffin) and marked
accordingly with the word “KEROSENE (PARAFFIN)”. Always store your kerosene (paraffin) in a separate area from
where you store gasoline (petrol) for your power equipment, to avoid use of gasoline (petrol) in your heater.
What to Buy...
ALWAYS:
ALWAYS:
NEVER:
NEVER:
Crystal clear, colorless, high quality KEROSENE (PARAFFIN).
Kerosene (paraffin) free of contaminants, water or cloudiness.
Gasoline (petrol), alcohol, white gas, camp stove fuel or additives.
Yellow or sour-smelling fuel.
How to Use lt...
ALWAYS: Fill heater away from living quarters when heater is cool; use siphon.
ALWAYS: Check wick frequently for tar build-up. (Rapid, heavy build-up may
indicate poor quality or deteriorated fuel.)
ALWAYS: Watch fuel gauge to avoid over-filling heater.
How to Store lt...
ALWAYS: ln a clean container, clearly marked KEROSENE (PARAFFIN).
ALWAYS: Store away from direct sunlight, heat sources or extreme temperature changes.
NEVER:
ln a glass container, or one that has been used for other fuels.
NEVER:
For longer than 6 months. (Begin each heating season with fresh
kerosene (paraffin); discard at the end of the season.)
Why lt is lmportant...
Pure, clean kerosene (paraffin) is essential for safe and efficient heater operation. Poor
quality or contaminated kerosene (paraffin) can cause:
● Low flame
● Excess tar deposits on the wick
● Reduced wick life
● Odor, smoke
● Difficulty in igniting or extinguishing flame
Use of a highly volatile flammable fuel such as gasoline (petrol) can produce
uncontrollable flames, creating a severe fire hazard.
CAUTlON
Flames observed emerging from the heater body are a clear indication that fuel is dangerously contaminated
with gasoline (petrol) or other highly flammable material. If this occurs,
a. NEVER attempt to move the heater.
b. Call the Fire Department.
c. Use only a class “B” fire extinguisher.
d. NEVER throw water directly on a burning heater.

FUELING
WARNING:
Use only clean Kerosene (paraffin).
NEVER use gasoline (petrol) or other flammable liquids.
ALWAYS extinguish heater before refill heater fuel tank.
Fuel heater outside the living area.
1. lnsert the straight tube of the manual fuel siphon into the kerosene (paraffin)
container. Remove the fuel tank cap on the heater, and insert the siphon’s flexible
hose into the fuel tank opening.
2. Turn the air vent knob on the top of the siphon clockwise to close the air vent.
USE KEROSENE ONLY
(PARAFFIN)
3. To start the flow of kerosene (paraffin), squeeze the bulb of the siphon vigorously
six or seven times. Once the flow begins, it is no longer necessary to squeeze the
bulb. To avoid overfilling the tank, watch the fuel gauge. As the indicator enters the
red zone, stop the flow by turning the air vent knob counterclockwise.
NOTE: Be especially careful to avoid overfilling the tank with very cold kerosene
(paraffin); otherwise overflow might occur when the fuel warms up.
4. Remove the siphon carefully, allowing the excess kerosene (paraffin) to drain from
the tube back into container. Replace the fuel tank cap and tighten it securely. Be
sure to wipe away any spilled kerosene (paraffin) from tank or other heater parts.
F
E
CHECK BEFORE LIGHTING
1. LOCATE YOUR HEATER AWAY FROM WALLS AND AVOID DRAFTS
Allow at least one (1) m of clearance between the heater and walls, curtains, shelving or other combustible
materials. DO NOT operate your heater in drafty areas or locations where opening doors may create gusts of air.
Drafts or strong air currents may make flame unstable and affect heater performance.
2. LEVEL THE HEATER
The heater should be operated on a firm, Ievel floor.
NOTE: lf your heater is not level, change Iocations. DO NOT attempt to prop it up
with books or other objects. An unlevel heater may burn with an uneven flame.
3. CHECK THE WICK LIFE EXTENDER
When you first use your new heater or after replacing the wick, check if the WICK
LIFE EXTENDER is on position 1. If not, readjust the wick life extender mechanism
to position 1 by following the instructions on page 9, ADJUSTMENT OF WICK
HEIGHT WITH WICK LIFE EXTENDER.
4. ENGAGE THE AUTOMATIC EXTINGUISHER
The automatic extinguisher is engaged automatically by turning the wick adjuster
knob clockwise. Check the operation of the automatic extinguisher before lighting
your heater. After turning the wick adjuster knob clockwise until it stops, turn the
manual shutoff counterclockwise to be sure the wick moves smoothly down.
7
Omni 230 Type C_US.qxd 14.8.1 13:15 ページ 8
LIGHTING
NOTE: When you first use your new heater, ignite it out of the living area of your house, either in a garage or an
outside area protected from strong drafts. Burn it for about 15 minutes to remove all of the protective oil
present on the burner parts. lf this 15 minutes “burn-in” is done inside, some objectionable odor will be
observed. This procedure is necessary ONLY THE FIRST TIME you ignite your heater.
NOTE: lf you have fueled your heater for the first time, or if you are refueling it after it has been out of fuel for a
long time, you will need to wait about thirty (30) minutes for the wick to become fully saturated before
Iighting. Failure to allow enough time for the wick to become fully saturated may cause permanent damage
to the wick when it is lighted.
1. Turn the wick adjuster knob clockwise until it stops.
It makes a spark discharge sound in the process of lighting procedure, but turn the
wick adjuster knob clockwise until it stops.
As the wick rises within the heater, the wick adjuster knob turns with some
resistance and makes a sound like the winding of a clock. Once the wick has
reached its proper height, the automatic extinguisher is fully engaged.
The wick adjuster knob can now move freely left or right to adjust the flame.
2. LIGHTING WITH A MATCH
You should not have to light the heater with a match, but should it become
necessary, open the access door, lift the heat chamber up by holding the wire
handle and touch the match to the top of the wick. DO NOT allow burned parts of
the match to fall or remain on the wick.
NOTE: To restore the automatic igniter system to proper operation, replace wornout batteries, or if the igniter coil defective, replace it.
3. Be sure that heat chamber is properly seated by moving the wire heat chamber
handle left and right, and close the access door.
NOTE: An improperly seated heat chamber can cause high flame, smoke, and
potential damage to the heater itself. DO NOT leave the heater until you
have determined that the flame is burning normally, as described in the
following section.
8
Omni 230 Type C_US.qxd 14.8.1 13:15 ページ 9
ADJUSTING THE FLAME
1. After lighting, wait for the heat chamber to reach operating temperature. This will take ten-fifteen minutes, after
which the flame will be visible through the mica window.
2. CHECK THE FLAME LENGTH
Look at the flame and check its length. Flame length is not necessarily even or uniform around the circumference
of the center disk. Some areas may be lower than others, but on maximum wick height, flame length should
average between 10 mm (3/8 in.) to 25 mm (1 in.).
lf necessary, raise or lower the wick by turning the wick adjuster knob within ADJUSTMENT RANGE to produce
the proper flame condition.

ADJUSTMENT RANGE
NOTE: DO NOT operate your heater with wick set TOO LOW or TOO HIGH. Doing so will decrease combustion
efficiency and increase production of unwanted emissions.
NOTE: ALWAYS observe the heater closely for the first 15-20 minutes after it is lighted to be sure it is properly
adjusted.
3. ADJUSTMENT OF WICK HEIGHT WITH WICK LIFE EXTENDER
Normal use of the wick and heat chamber over a period of time may make it impossible to achieve a
satisfactorily high flame level. Usually this occurs because the wick develops deposits on it that retard fuel flow
and evaporation. When this happens, the wick should be cleaned by “burning dry” as described in item 2, page
11 “INSPECTION OF THE WICK”.
When the “burning dry” cleaning procedure is no longer effective in restoring proper
flame height, adjust the wick life extender mechanism to the next higher position.
NOTE: DO NOT move the wick life extender to a higher position unless the wick
has been cleaned by “burning dry”.
To adjust the wick height rising the wick life extender, first release the automatic
extinguisher by pushing down on the MANUAL SHUTOFF.
Then pull the wick adjuster knob from its shaft by pulling outward.
9
Omni 230 Type C_US.qxd 14.8.1 13:15 ページ 10
When the wick adjuster knob is removed, the wick life extender control can be seen
to contain 3 sequential holes marked 1 , 2 and 3. By pulling out and turning the
control dial counterclockwise, the stem pin of the adjuster can be moved from 1
to 2 and to 3 position as required. Each step upward from a lower to a higher
number increases the maximum wick adjustment range by 2 mm (approx. 1/13 in.).
After the wick life extender’s dial has been set, be sure the MANUAL SHUTOFF
knob is in the “OFF” position. Replace the wick adjuster knob, making sure it is
engaged securely on the wick adjuster shaft.
Repeat steps 1 through 3, as needed, in the section titled “ADJUSTING THE
FLAME”. When suitable flame length can no longer be achieved even on pin
position 3 , the wick should be replaced.
NOTE : DO NOT move adjuster to higher position until lower position no longer
gives adequate flame length, even after “burning dry”.
Before replacing wick, be sure to move the wick life extender dial back to its 1
position.
CHECK THE OPERATION OF THE AUTOMATIC EXTINGUISHER BEFORE
LIGHTING YOUR HEATER.
EXTINGUISHING THE FLAME
1. Turn the wick adjuster knob counterclockwise until it stops (about 3/4 turn). Within
a few moments, the flame will be completely extinguished and the heater will be off.
2. Make sure the flame is out completely.
3. DO NOT try to relight the heater for at least three (3) minutes after turning it off, as
this may cause smoke and odor.
MANUAL SHUTOFF
When quick shutoff is necessary, push the manual shutoff.
NOTE: For routine turn-off, DO NOT use the “Manual Shutoff” or activate the
“Automatic Extinguisher” by jarring the heater. These methods may cause
unwanted odor, soot and smoke. Only the wick adjuster knob should be used
for normal shutoff.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
As with any good appliance, preventive as well as corrective maintenance is occasionally required. Please read the
following section carefully in order to enjoy the greatest benefits from your heater.
INSPECTlON OF THE WlCK
NOTE: One of the simplest but also the most important components of your heater is the wick.
With proper attention, the wick will last at least one heating season and, depending on the quality of the
fuel used, possibly longer, it helps to perform routine maintenance operations of the wick.
1. lndications that the wick may need attention are:
● low flame
● tar deposit on the top edge of the wick
● difficulty in turning the wick adjuster knob
● a flickering or dying flame
2. Clean the wick by burning dry as follows:
1) When the fuel gauge indicates empty, but the heater is still burning, raise the wick to its highest position and
allow the flame to consume the remaining fuel in the tank.
NOTE: Burning the wick dry can at times create odors. For the burning dry procedure, remove your heater from
the living area of your house into a well-ventilated area such as a garage or even a sheltered area
outside. If you burn the wick dry outside, be sure that the heater is not exposed to strong drafts during
the procedure.
2) After the heater has cooled completely, remove the heater cover as described in items 1 and 2 of the next
section.
3) Remove any residue from the wick with a small brush such as an old toothbrush. Cinders or soot in the burner
around the wick may be vacuumed away. Be careful when removing such material from the wick with a brush,
to do so gently so as not to tear the top surface of the wick.
4) Remove any tar deposits on the top of wick adjuster and primary air tube using a scraper.
NOTE: When good wick performance is no longer achieved by the burning dry process, it may be necessary to
replace the burned wick with a new one.
5) Before reassembling the heater, take a few minutes to wipe the parts with a soft cotton cloth or paper towels.
6) Reassemble the heater, following directions in item 11 of the next section.
NOTE: If the flame is still low after cleaning the wick, the wick may contain some water. It is then necessary to
replace the wick and empty all kerosene (paraffin) from the fuel tank. Dry the tank thoroughly and refill
with fresh, pure kerosene (paraffin).
11
Omni 230 Type C_US.qxd 14.8.1 13:15 ページ 12
CLEANING THE HEATER
1. Cleaning the outer cover and the fuel tank.
Wipe the surface of the outer cover and the fuel tank with a soft cloth.
Stains can be removed with a cloth and a mind soapy solution.
DO NOT use scouring pads, or harsh abrasibes.
2. Chrome guard
A non-abrasive metal polisher can be used with a soft cloth to polish the guard.
3. Heat chamber
Loose cinders or soot on the heat chamber can be brushed away.
CHECKING THE AUTOMATIC EXTINGUISHER
Test the operation of the automatic extinguisher weekly. A good time to check is before lighting the heater.
1. Turn the wick adjuster knob clocwise until it stops (the same way as to light the heater).
2. Push the manual shutoff and make sure the wick has dropped.
3. Repeat step 1 and then shake the heater and make sure the automatic extinguisher worked.
REPLACEMENT OF PARTS
REPLACING THE WlCK

REPLACING THE MICA WINDOW
WARNING: Before replacing the mica window, allow heater to cool completely.
1. Remove screw from the mica window frame and lift mica window off.
2. Align notch in mica window with hole on mica window frame.
Insert tab of the mica window frame into outer cover slot. Replace screw.
STORAGE
At the end of each heating season, or when you do not plan to use your heater for an extended period of time, the
following procedures are recommended.
1. CLEAN WlCK AND HEATER
Follow directions in item 2 under “INSPECTlON OF THE WlCK”.
2. DRAIN FUEL TANK
After you have burned your heater dry, a small amount of kerosene (paraffin) will remain in the fuel tank. lt should
be removed in order to avoid contamination when the heater is refueled at a later date. To do this, remove the
fuel cap, tip the heater toward you and insert a small syringe into the bottom-most portion of the fuel tank.
Empty the tank completely before storage.
3. REMOVE BATTERIES FROM BATTERY HOLDER
4. STORE HEATER
The original shipping carton is the best place to store your heater. If you do not have original packing
materials, cover the heater with a large plastic bag and store in a dry place.
