2. Children should be carefully supervised when they are in the area of the heater.

3.

NEVER hang anything including clothes or other flammable items on the heater.

4. DO NOT operate this heater unless it is fully assembled with reflector in place.

5. Installation and repair should be done by a qualified service person. The heater should be inspected before use and at least annually by a qualified service person. More frequent cleaning may be required as necessary. It is imperative that control compartment, burners and circulating air passages of the heater be kept clean.

Prior to assembling your Model A270 propane heater, the following must be reviewed.

Compliance with the following should yield satisfactory heater operation. These instructions should be retained for future reference. The installation must conform with local codes or local authority having jurisdictions.

1. The Model A270 gas-fired infrared patio heater is intended for heating residential and non residential outdoor spaces. The installation must conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the

National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1.

In Canada, heater installation must conform with local building codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the current National

Standards of Canada CAN/CGA-B 149.2.

2.

Adequate clearance around air openings into the combustion chamber, clearances from combustible materials, provisions for accessibility and for combustion and ventilating air supply must be maintained at all times when the heater is operating.

3. Proper clearance from combustible materials must be maintained at all times. The minimum clearances are as follows:

Minimum Clearance from Combustibles

Side 24” (61 cm)

Rear 24” (61 cm)

Ceiling 18” (46 cm)

Below 84” (84 cm)

Combustible materials are considered to be wood, compressed paper, plant fibers, plastic,

Plexiglas or other materials capable of being ignited and burned. Such materials shall be considered combustible even though flameproofed, fire-retardant treated or plastered.

Additional clearance may be required for glass, painted surfaces and other materials which may be damaged by radiant or convection heat.

4. Heaters must be placed on a level and adequate footing and be readily accessible.

The heater may be be permanently attached to the floor utilizing the Floor Clamp Kit (Part

No. 27020) available from the manufacturer.

5. The gas manifold supply pressure must be regulated at 11” water column utilizing a U/L listed regulator. Any replacement regulator must be U/L listed. The minimum inlet pressure to the regulator from the tank is 5

PSI and maximum pressure is 150 PSI.

6. The heater must be inspected before each use, and at least annually by a qualified service person.

a. The appliance area must be kept clear and free of combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.

c. All gas connections should be checked for leaks utilizing a soap solution. Never use a flame for this purpose.

d. The flame pattern at the emitter grid should be visually checked whenever heater is operated (see figure 1.). If flames extend more than ½ inch beyond surface of the emitter grid or black soot is accumulating on the emitter grid or reflector, the heater should be turned off immediately. The heater should not be operated again until repairs are made.

e. Any cleaning agent used on the heater should be of a non-combustible and noncorrosive nature.

f. The stainless steel emitter grid normally does not require cleaning and should

NEVER be painted. The reflector may be cleaned, but never painted. Other portions of the heater may be re-coated only with

7. The hose assembly shall be properly located out of pathways where people may trip over it.

WARNING

Propane Safety

To disconnect the coupler, first, make sure the main tank valve is turned off. Grasp the coupler and turn counter clockwise and the inlet will then disengage.

1. Only qualified persons are permitted to fill propane cylinder.

2. Never attempt to repair a propane cylinder.

3. DO NOT allow children to play or tamper with propane cylinders.

4. When transporting, keep cylinder secured in an upright position with the cylinder valve turned off.

5. Store cylinders outdoors in a well ventilated and secure area.

Propane Gas is a heavier than air fuel that requires that basic safety precautions. Take the time to read the safety precautions in this manual and on the propane tank. Consult your propane supplier in regards to safety handling and transport of your propane tank.

The A270 heater comes equipped with a hose and regulator for connection to a standard 20lb propane cylinder. All fittings necessary to attach the hose/regulator to the heater are included. The propane tank is not included. Operating pressure is

11.0” W.C.

Propane Tank Requirements

A dented or rusty propane tank may be hazardous and should be checked by your propane gas supplier.

Never use a cylinder with a damaged valve. Always check for leaks after every propane tank change.

The propane gas cylinder must be constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications for propane gas cylinders of the U.S. Department of

Transportation (DOT) and designed for use with a

Type 1 system only. DO NOT change the regulator/hose assembly from that supplied with the unit or attempt to use other types of tank connections.

Propane Tank Connections

Connect the Regulator to the tank (with the tank valve fully closed). Although the flow of gas is stopped when the Type 1 system is disconnected, you should always turn the propane tank main valve off after each use and during transport of the tank or heater. Insert the regulator inlet into the tank valve and turn the black coupler clockwise until the coupler is tight.

Do not over-tighten the coupler.

Test for Leaks

Leak tests must be performed with soapy water each time the tank is re-connected to the heater. Once the propane tank is connected open the tank valve. Apply soapy water with a spray bottle or small paint brush around tank valve and hose connections If bubbles appear repair of the heater or tank is required before the heater is operated.

DO NOT check for gas leaks with a match or open flame. Apply soapy water at areas marked “X”. Open cylinder valve. If bubbles appear, close valve and have an LP-Gas service person make needed repairs. Also check appliance valves and connections to make sure they DO NOT leak before lighting appliance.

Cylinders must be stored outdoors in a well-ventilated area out of the reach of children. If the appliance is stored indoors, the propane cylinder must be removed from the appliance and stored outdoors. DO NOT store a spare propane cylinder under or near this appliance. NEVER fill the cylinder beyond 80 percent full. For appliances designed to use a CGA No. 791

Connection. “Place the dust cap on the cylinder valve outlet whenever the cylinder is not in use. Only install the type of dust cap on the cylinder valve that is provided with the cylinder valve. Other types of caps or plugs may result in leakage of propane.
