3. Check heater for any shipping damage. If heater is damaged, promptly inform dealer where you bought heater.

WATER VAPOR: A BY-PRODUCT OF

UNVENTED ROOM HEATERS

Water vapor is a by-product of gas combustion. An unvented room heater produces approximately one (1) ounce (30 mL) of water for every 1,000 BTUs (0.3 KWs) of gas input per hour. Unvented room heaters are recommended as supplemental heat (a room) rather than a primary heat source (an entire house). In most supplemental heat applications, the water vapor does not create a problem. In most applications, the water vapor enhances the low humidity atmosphere experienced during cold weather.

The following steps will help ensure that water vapor does not become a problem.

1. Be sure the heater is sized properly for the application, including ample combustion air and circulation air.

2. If high humidity is experienced, a dehumidifier may be used to help lower the water vapor content of the air.

3. Do not use an unvented room heater as the primary heat source.

AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION

WARNING: This heater shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight construction unless provisions are provided for adequate combustion and ventilation air. Read the following instructions to insure proper fresh air for this and other fuel-burning appliances in your home.

Today’s homes are built more energy efficient than ever. New materials, increased insulation and new construction methods help reduce heat loss in homes. Home owners weather strip and caulk around windows and doors to keep the cold air out and the warm air in.

During heating months, home owners want their homes as airtight as possible.

While it is good to make your home energy efficient, your home needs to breathe. Fresh air must enter your home. All fuel-burning appliances need fresh air for proper combustion and ventilation.

Exhaust fans, fireplaces, clothes dryers and fuel burning appliances draw air from the house to operate. You must provide adequate fresh air for these appliances. This will insure proper venting of vented fuel-burning appliances.

WARNING: This heater shall not be installed in a room or space unless the required volume of indoor combustion air is provided by the method described in the National Fuel Gas

Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, the

International Fuel Gas Code, or applicable local codes.

WARNING: If the area in which the heater may be operated is smaller than that defined as an unconfined space or if the building is of unusually tight construction, provide adequate combustion and ventilation air by one of the methods described in the National Fuel Gas Code,

ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, the In-

ternational Fuel Gas Code, or applicable local codes.

200302-01C www.factorybuysdirect.com

AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION

VENTILATION AIR

Ventilation Air From Inside Building

This fresh air would come from an adjoining unconfined space. When ventilating to an adjoining unconfined space, you must provide two permanent openings: one within 12" of the ceiling and one within 12" of the floor on the wall connecting the two spaces (see options

1 and 2, Figure 2). You can also remove door into adjoining room (see option 3, Figure 2).

Follow the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI

Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for Combustion and

Ventilation for required size of ventilation grills or ducts.

12"

Ventilation Air From Outdoors

Provide extra fresh air by using ventilation grills or ducts. You must provide two permanent openings: one within 12" of the ceiling and one within 12" of the floor. Connect these items directly to the outdoors or spaces open to the outdoors. These spaces include attics and crawl spaces. Follow the National Fuel

Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for

Combustion and Ventilation for required size of ventilation grills or ducts.

IMPORTANT: Do not provide openings for inlet or outlet air into attic if attic has a thermostat-controlled power vent. Heated air entering the attic will activate the power vent.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

WARNING: Turn off heater and let cool before servicing.

CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burner, and circulating air passageways of heater clean. Inspect these areas of heater before each use. Have heater inspected yearly by a qualified service technician. Heater may need more frequent cleaning due to excessive lint from carpeting, bedding material, pet hair, etc.

WARNING: Failure to keep the primary air opening(s) of the burner(s) clean may result in sooting and property damage.

MAIN BURNER

Periodically inspect all burner flame holes with the heater running. All slotted burner flame holes should be open with yellow flame present. All round burner flame holes should be open with a small blue flame present. Some burner flame holes may become blocked by debris or rust, with no flame present. If so, turn off the heater and let it cool, and remove blockage or replace burner. Blocked burner flame holes will create soot.

BURNER INJECTOR HOLDER AND PILOT AIR INLET HOLE

We recommend that you clean the unit every 2,500 hours of operation or every three months. We also recommend that you keep the burner tube and pilot assembly clean and free of dust and dirt. To clean these parts we recommend using compressed air no greater than 30 PSl. Your local computer store, hardware store, or home center may carry compressed air in a can. You can use a vacuum cleaner in the blow position. If using compressed air in a can, please follow the directions on the can. If you don’t follow directions on the can, you could damage the pilot assembly.

1. Shut off the unit, including the pilot. Allow the unit to cool for at least thirty minutes.

2. Remove four screws securing front panel.

3. Pull front panel forward.

4. Inspect burner and pilot for dust and dirt.

5. Blow air through the ports/slots and holes in the burner.

6. Replace front panel using screws removed in step 2.

ODS/PILOT

Use a vacuum cleaner, pressurized air, or a small, soft bristled brush to clean.

A yellow tip on the pilot flame indicates dust and dirt in the pilot assembly. There is a small pilot air inlet hole about 2" from where the pilot flame comes out of the pilot assembly

(see Figure 28). With the unit off, lightly blow air through the air inlet hole. You may blow through a drinking straw if compressed air is not available.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

MAINTENANCE OF BLOWER MOTOR (IF EQUIPPED)

Always disconnect the appliance from the main power supply and allow it to cool before any servicing operation.

The motors used on the fan heater and flame blower are pre-lubricated for extended bearing life and require no further lubrication.

However, periodic cleaning/vacuuming of the appliance around the air intake and exhaust, as well as the fan heater is recommended. For heavy or continuous use, periodic cleaning must be done more frequently. If the heater blows alternating cold and warm air, check the fan for free movement and for debris restricting air flow. If the fan does not move freely, the unit must be turned off and the fan replaced immediately in order to prevent further damage to the unit.

TROUBLESHOOTING

WARNING: If you smell gas:

• Shut off gas supply.

• Do not try to light any appliance.

• Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any phone in your building.

• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.

• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.

WARNING: Only a qualified service technician should service and repair heater. Make sure that power is turned off before proceeding.

Turn off and let cool before servicing.

CAUTION: Never use a wire, needle, or similar object to clean

ODS/pilot. This can damage ODS/ pilot unit.

IMPORTANT: Operating heater where impurities in air exist may create odors. Cleaning supplies, paint, paint remover, cigarette smoke, cements and glues, new carpet or textiles, etc., create fumes. These fumes may mix with combustion air and create odors.

Note: All troubleshooting items are listed in order of operation.

Problem

Using natural gas and pilot will not light.

Possible Cause

Pressure Switch

When using natural gas (NG), there is a pressure switch that acts to turn off the gas flow to the pilot if the inlet pressure exceeds 9.5"

WC. This is to prevent the operation of the unit on the wrong gas (propane/LP). If your natural gas supply exceeds 9.5" WC the unit will not operate. Either contact your gas supplier to check and adjust the inlet pressure or a qualified service technician can bypass the pressure switch.

Corrective Action

Inlet pressure exceeds 9.5" WC. Bypass pressure switch. See instructions below.

Before attempting to bypass the pressure switch, make sure the type of gas being used is correct. Check to make sure the connection fitting is in the correct inlet on the regulator.

Refer to Connecting to Gas Supply , page 15.

Only a qualified installer should bypass the pressure switch. To bypass the pressure switch locate the set screw on the regulator.

Use a small flat bladed screw driver to turn the set screw counterclockwise 2 turns. This will bypass the pressure switch function.

200302-01C www.factorybuysdirect.com

TROUBLESHOOTING

The entire gas delivery piping including connections inside the heater should be leak tested by the qualified installer. After leak testing the qualified installer should light the appliance. Refer to the correct flame pattern as illustrated on page 21. All flame patterns should be safely inside the product. If for any reason they are not, stop use of the appliance and call for repairs.
