DUE TO HIGH TEMPERATURES, THE HEATER SHOULD BE LOCATED OUT OF

TRAFFIC AND AWAY FROM COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS.

Children and adults should be alerted to the hazard of high surface temperature and should stay away to avoid burns or clothing ignition.

Young children should be carefully supervised when they are near the heater.

Do not place clothing or other flammable material on or near the heater.

Any safety screen or guard removed for servicing the heater must be replaced prior to operating the heater.

The heater should be inspected before each use. Frequent cleaning may be required.

The control compartments, burners and circulating air passageways of the heater must be kept clean.

H E AT E R M A I N T E N A N C E I N S T R U C T I O N S

Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.

Keep vent slots clean.

Make a periodic visual check of pilot and burner flame to ensure proper operation. The pilot flame will extend beyond the thermocouple wrapping around it just under the tip. If yellow in color instead of blue, cleaning may be required.

The burner should have a bright orange glow with a slight blue color around the border without any noticeable flame.

A blue flame at the top of the ceramic tile is indicated excessive dust, dirt or spider webs inside the steel casing and/or reflector assembly, and means that cleaning is probably necessary.

When cleaning heater (figure 1):

1. Disconnect disposable 1lb. cylinder (if using remote bulk tank turn off gas supply at remote cylinder valve, then disconnect hose from heater.)

2. Gently bend wire guard to remove wire guard prongs (a) from mounting holes in steel casing, freeing wire guard.

3. Insert a flat bladed screwdriver between the top (horizontal) edge of the reflector assembly (B) and the steel casing and push down until the steel tab (C) on the top edge of the reflector assembly releases from the steel casing.

4. Ease reflector assembly away from steel casing.

5. Inspect casing interior components for spider webs as well as dust or dirt.

a. If necessary use a vacuum cleaner or

compressed air to clean:

- Steel casing interior.

- Burner orifice at orifice opening (D)

- Pilot (E) through the holes in the pilot indicate by arrows in Figure 2. Never touch drilled holes in pilot, as they are extremely delicate. Insertion of pins, wire, etc. is likely to disturb proper gas flow.

b. If necessary, use compressed air to clean

venturi tube (F) and ceramic tile (G).

6. Ease reflector assembly back into steel casing.

Pushing down on top edge with flat bladed screw

driver, insert tab in hole in steel casing.

7. Gently bend wire guard and insert prongs into

mounting holes in steel casing.

Remember to check and clean the burner orifice and venturi tube on a regular basis to eliminate inserts, insect nests and spider webs. A clogged tube can lead to a fire.

Keep Heater area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAFE LIGHTING,

OPERATION AND SHUTDOWN WHEN

CONNECTING HEATER TO

DISPOSABLE CYLINDER:

Always connect the heater only to 16.4 oz. (1lb.) disposable propane cylinders that mate with a

No. 600 Valve connection. The propane cylinder must be constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications for LP-gas cylinders of the

U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

Make certain Control Knob (Figure 4) is in OFF position.

Screw 1 lb. disposable propane cylinder HAND

TIGHT clockwise into regulator inlet. Make sure cylinder is ALWAYS in an upward position. Take care not to cross thread.

Before each use look through opening at back of heater (Figure 3) to check connection by wetting with soap and water solution to be sure there are no leaks. Never check for leaks with a match.

DO NOT USE HEATER if bubbles form from the soap solution, if you smell gas, or if there are any other leaks in your propane system.

Depress completely and turn control knob counterclockwise to PILOT position and hold for 15-30 seconds allowing gas to flow to the pilot.

Keeping the control knob depressed, turn from the PILOT to the OFF position and immediately back to the PILOT position to utilize spark igniter.

Repeat the PILOT-OFF-PILOT sequence until the pilot lights.

Continue to depress the control knob at the

PILOT position for 15-30 seconds to activate the

Pilot Light Safety System.

NOTE: If the spark igniter fails to light the pilot, turn knob to OFF, allow at least 2 minutes for gas to dissipate and light with a match.

Release control knob after the pilot is lit and

IMMEDIATELY turn to HIGH position to light heater.

NOTE: Within a few minutes, the ceramic tile will develop a steady bright orange glow except for a

1/4’’ border along its outside edges. When lit the first time the top of the reflector will discolor to a bluish-brown.

Adjust heat output by depressing control knob slightly and turning to LOW or HIGH position.

To shut off heater, push down control knob and turn clockwise to OFF position.

Disposable cylinders must be disconnected when the heater is not in use.

TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATION

Spark Igniter does not spark.

Contact factory.

Spark igniter sparks but does not light pilot.

1. Pilot is clogged-cleaning is required - see

page 2.

2. New outdoor bulk tank being used, but gas not

immediately flowing-purge (let air out of) new

tank for about 10 seconds. Repeat process.

We strongly recommend taking tank back to

dealer for purging.

3. Propane not getting to heater-if using

disposable cylinder check connection, or if

using hose to outside tank check connections

and make sure tank valve is open.

Pilot does not stay lit.

1. Control knob not depressed long enough-try

again.

2. Pilot flame not wrapping around thermocouple

or yellow in color-clean pilot-see page 2.

3. Pilot assembly defective-contact factory.

Burner does not light or blue flame appears at top of ceramic tile.

Orifice is blocked. Clean orifice-see page 2.

Heater operates but shuts off on its own.

1. Heater exposed to draft-move heater. Also, remember heater is for indoor use only. Pilot will go out when exposed to even minimal wind velocity.

2. Pilot is clogged-cleaning required-see page 2.

3. Not enough ventilation-make certain room has minimum open window or roof vent area of 8 square inches (example 2’’ x 4’’).

4. Heater at too high an altitude (over 6,500 feet).

Turn to OFF. Wait several minutes, attempt to relight.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SAFE LIGHTING, OPERATION AND SHUTDOWN

WHEN CONNECTING HEATER TO BULK TANK

The LP-gas supply cylinder to be used:

- Must include a collar to protect the cylinder valve.

- Must be provided with a listed overfilling prevention device.

- Must be provided with a cylinder connection device compatible with the No. 600 valve connection of the heater.

Do not connect the heater to propane tanks greater than 20 pounds LPG capacity (5 pounds water capacity) without checking with your local fire department. The LP-gas supply cylinder to be used must be constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications for LP-gas cylinders of the U.S. Department of

Transportation (DOT).

The pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with the heater must be used. Replacement pressure regulators and hose assemblies must be those specific by the heater manufacturer.

This heater may be used in a recreational enclosure or temporary construction work enclosure with a remote refillable propane cylinder ONLY when the cylinder is located outdoor and the heater is used with Paulin hose kit number

4122 or 3123 (Figure 7).

Screw appropriate end of the hose into the heater regulator and the other end into the propane tank valve. Tighten connections at both ends.

Before each use look through opening at back of heater and look at connection at tank valve to check connections with soap solution to be sure there are no leaks (Figure 3). Never check for leaks with a match. DO NOT USE HEATER if bubbles form from the soap solution, if you smell gas, or if there are any other leaks in your propane system.

Open propane tank valve.

Depress completely and turn control knob counterclockwise to PILOT position and hold for 15-30 seconds allowing gas to flow to the pilot. You may have to hold longer depending on hose length.

Keeping the control knob depressed, turn from the PILOT to the OFF position and immediately back to the PILOT position to utilize spark igniter.

Repeat the PILOT-OFF-PILOT sequence until the pilot lights.

Continue to depress the control knob at the

PILOT position for 15-30 seconds to activate the Pilot Light Safety System.

NOTE: If the spark igniter fails to light the pilot, turn knob OFF, allow at least 2 minutes for gas to dissipate and light with a match.

NEVER bring a refillable propane cylinder indoors. A fire or explosion can occur causing property damage, serious injury or death.

Release control knob after the pilot is lit and

Immediately turn to HIGH position to light heater.

Inspect the hose before each use of the heater.

If it is evident there is excessive abrasion or wear, or the hose is cut, it must be replaced prior to the heater being put into operation. The replacement hose assembly shall be that specified by the manufacturer.

Connecting Heater to Bulk Propane Tank:

Always connect the heater to an outside bulk tan kin the outdoors. NEVER connect this heater to a bulk tank near an open flame.

NOTE: Within a few minutes the ceramic tile will develop a steady bright orange glow except for a 1/4’’ border along its outside edges.

When lit the first time, the top of the reflector will discolor to a bluish-brown.

Adjust heat output by depressing control knob slightly and turning to LOW or HIGH position.

To shut off heater, push down control knob and turn clockwise to OFF position.

USE OF HEATER:

Always use your hater in an upright position on a level noncombustible surface in a location where it could not be accidently tipped over by humans or animals. NEVER place the heater or propane tank on its side or in a horizontal position when operating as this could lead to dangerous flare up or fire. Pick heater up by handle and return to upright position. Make certain control knob is in the OFF position. Wait 5 minutes before relighting to allow propane in tank to stabilize.

Close propane tank valve. The gas must be turned off at the supply cylinder when the heater is not in use.

When the LP-gas supply cylinder is not disconnected from the heater, the heater and the cylinder must be stored outdoors, in a well ventilated space, out of the reach of children, and must not be stored in a building, garage or any other enclosed area.

Indoor storage of the heater is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the heater.

PROVISIONS MUST BE MADE FOR ADEQUATE

COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION AIR:

This heater can only be used in a recreational or commercial enclosure with a window or roof vent. This heater is not for outdoor use.

WARNING: Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning resemble the flu, with headache, dizziness and/ or nausea. If you have these signs, heater may not be working properly.

Get fresh air at once! Have heater serviced.

This heater requires a minimum open window or roof vent area of 8 square inches (example: 2’’ x 4’’) for adequate combustion and ventilation air. Do not operate other burner appliances inside when using the heater.

Some people - pregnant women, persons with heart or lung disease, anemia, those under the influence of alcohol, those at high altitudes - are more affected by carbon monoxide than others.

WARNING: If the recreational or commercial enclosure does not have a window or roof vent, DO NOT USE THIS HEATER

INSIDE.

When used without adequate combustion and ventilation air, this heater may give off excessive CARBON MONOXIDE, an orderless, poisonous gas.

Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation.

Do not operate heater if tile is cracked

(even a hairline crack) or broken.

See Figure 5. Use of the heater with a cracked or broken tile can result in increased levels of carbon monoxide.

Contact factory immediately for a replacement tile.

Hairline cracks are most noticeable when heater is lit.

Do not use this heater if any part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the heater and to replace any part of the control system and any gas control which has been under water.
