NOTE - This manual must be left with the equipment
user.
Page 2
Do not set thermostat below 60°F (16°C) in heating
mode. Setting thermostat below 60°F (16°C) reduces
the number of heating cycles. Damage to the unit
may occur that is not covered by the warranty.
WARNING
If overheating occurs or if gas supply fails to shut off,
shut off the manual gas valve to the furnace before
shutting off electrical supply.
CAUTION
Before attempting to perform any service or mainteĆ
nance, turn the electrical power to unit OFF at the
disconnect switch.
WARNING
WARNING
Do not use this furnace if any part has been underĆ
water. A flood-damaged furnace is extremely danĆ
gerous. Attempts to use the furnace can result in
fire or explosion. Immediately call a qualified serĆ
vice technician to inspect the furnace and to replace
all gas controls, control system parts, and electrical
parts that have been wet or to replace the furnace,
if deemed necessary.
IMPORTANT
Any additions, changes, or conversions required in
order for the appliance to satisfactorily meet the apĆ
plication needs must be made by a Lennox service
technician using factory specified and approved
parts.
WARNING
Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service
or maintenance can cause property damage, personĆ
al injury or loss of life. Installation and service must
be performed by a qualified installer, service agency
or the gas supplier.
Safety Instructions
1 - Keep the furnace area clear and free of combustible
material, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and
liquids. If it is installed in an insulated area, the furnace
must be kept free of insulating material. Insulating maĆ
terial may be combustible.
2 - DO NOT obstruct air flow to unit. Unit must receive an
unobstructed flow of combustion and ventilating air.
DO NOT block or obstruct air openings on the furnace
or air openings to the area in which the furnace is
installed. Take care to maintain established clearĆ
ances surrounding the furnace.
3 - DO NOT store chlorine or fluorine products near unit
or introduce these products into the combustion air.
These products can cause furnace corrosion.
4 - DO NOT draw return air from a room where this furĆ
nace, or any other gas appliance (ie., a water heatĆ
er), is installed. When return air is drawn from a room,
a negative pressure is created in the room. If a gas apĆ
pliance is operating in a room with negative pressure,
the flue products can be pulled back down the vent
pipe and into the room. This reverse flow of the flue
gas may result in incomplete combustion and the
formation of carbon monoxide gas. This toxic gas
might then be distributed throughout the house by the
furnace duct system.
Page 3
The blower door must be securely in place when the
blower and burners are operating. Gas fumes, which
could contain carbon monoxide, can be drawn into
the living space resulting in personal injury or death.
Your furnace is a gas appliance. It is critical that the gas
supplied to the unit be completely burned to avoid the proĆ
duction of carbon monoxide gas. Complete combustion of
the gas requires, but is not limited to, correct gas pressure
and gas flow rate, adequate combustion, air, and proper
venting.
WARNING
Carbon monoxide gas is invisible, odorless and
toxic.
Exposure to carbon monoxide gas can cause personal injuĆ
ry and even death to all occupants, including pets. Any item
that is powered by or gives off heat from a combustion proĆ
cess (including lawn mowers, automobiles, and fireplaces)
has the potential to produce carbon monoxide gas. Because
of this, Lennox recommends the use of a carbon monoxĆ
ide detector in your home, even if you do not own gas
appliances. Reliable detectors are available at reasonable
retail prices. Contact your Lennox dealer for more details
about this investment in your safety.
Your furnace is designed to meet standards set by nationĆ
al agencies, and to operate safely when properly installed
and maintained. However, the unit's performance can be
greatly impacted by the individual installation and the opĆ
erating environment. It is your responsibility to ensure that
this appliance is maintained. Proper maintenance is critiĆ
cal for your safety and the satisfactory operation of the
product. Lennox strongly recommends annual inĆ
spection and maintenance of this appliance. Contact
your Lennox dealer for an inspection by a qualified service
technician.
Lighting Information & Operation
WARNING
If you do not follow these instructions exactly, a fire
or explosion may result causing property damage,
personal injury or death.
BEFORE LIGHTING smell all around the appliance area
for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor because some gas
is heavier than air and will settle on the floor.
The gas valve on the G50UHi will be equipped with either
a gas control knob or lever. Use only your hand to turn the
gas control knob or push the gas lever. Never use tools. If
the knob or lever will not move by hand, do not try to repair
it. Call a qualified service technician. Force or attempted
repair may result in a fire or explosion.

Planned Service
You should expect a service technician to check the followĆ
ing items during an annual inspection. Power to the unit
must be shut off for the service technician's safety.
Fresh air grilles and louvers (on the unit and in the room
where the furnace is installed) - Must be open and unobĆ
structed to provide combustion air.
Burners - Must be inspected for rust, dirt, or signs of water.
Vent pipe - Must be inspected for signs of water, damaged
or sagging pipe, or disconnected joints.
Unit appearance - Must be inspected for rust, dirt, signs
of water, burnt or damaged wires, or components.
Safety Precautions
D
Your vigilance may pay off in early detection of a problem
before either personal injury or property damage occurs.
Do not hesitate to contact a qualified service technician as
an investment in your well being.
If you repeatedly hear any new or unfamiliar sounds
while your unit is operating, there may be a problem. For
example, poorly performing burners can produce unfaĆ
miliar noises.
If you smell any unusual odors, your unit may be operatĆ
ing improperly. For example, units can give off unfamilĆ
iar odors if components are required to operate in abĆ
normal conditions.
D
Look for visible signs of a malfunctioning unit. Examples
include unusual amounts of condensate on windows inĆ
side your house, visibly burnt components or unusual
dirt or rust accumulations on the vent pipe or in the unit.
D
If you experience headache, nausea, fatigue, or dizziĆ
ness, the cause could be exposure to carbon monoxide
gas. This is often misdiagnosed as the flu because
symptoms are similar. If you suffer from flu-like sympĆ
toms that are exaggerated at home, but seem to subĆ
side while you are away from the house, exposure to
carbon monoxide could be the cause.
Page 6
Blower access door - Must be properly in place and proĆ
vide a seal between the return air and the room where the
furnace is installed.
Return air duct - Must be properly attached and provide
an air seal to the unit.
Operating performance - Unit must be observed during
operation to monitor proper performance of the unit and the
vent system.
Combustion gases - Flue products must be analyzed and
compared to the unit specifications.
Problems detected during the inspection may make it necĆ
essary to temporarily shut down the furnace until the items
can be repaired or replaced.
Pay attention to your furnace. Situations can arise beĆ
tween annual furnace inspections that may result in unsafe
operation. For instance, items innocently stored next to the
furnace may obstruct the combustion air supply. This could
cause incomplete combustion and the production of carĆ
bon monoxide gas.
