have this book.
A minimum supply pressure of .5 psi is required for the purpose of input adjustment of propane gas. Storage of
an appliance indoors is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the appliance. A
cylinder must be stored outdoors in a well-ventilated area out of the reach of children. A disconnected cylinder
must have dust caps tightly installed and must not be stored in a building, garage, or any other enclosed area.
The minimum permissible gas supply pressure of 11 W.C. is required for purpose of hose adjustment. The
minimum hourly of 17,500 BTU is required input rating for a heater for automatic operation rating less than full
input rating.
The pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with the appliance must be used.
The installation must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with national fuel gas code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA54, natural gas and propane Installation Code, CSA B149.1, or propane storage and handling code,
B149.2
A dented rusted or damaged propane cylinder may be hazardous and should be checked by your local cylinder
supplier. Never use a propane cylinder with a damaged 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) or the standard for cylinders, spheres and tubes for
transportation of dangerous goods and commission, CAN/CSA-B339.
The cylinder must have a listed overfilling prevention device.
The cylinder must have a connection device compatible with the connection for the appliance.
The cylinder used must include a collar to protect the cylinder valve.
Never connect an unregulated propane cylinder to the heater.
 Do not store a spare LP-gas cylinder under or near this appliance.
 Never fill the cylinder beyond 80 percent full.
 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.

IF NO BUBBLES APPEAR AT ANY CONNECTION, THE CONNECTIONS ARE SECURE.
Note: Whenever gas connections are loosened or removed, you must perform a complete leak test.
Caution: Do not attempt to operate this appliance until you have read and understand all Safety Information in
this manual and all assembly is complete and leak tests have been performed.
Before Turning Gas Supply ON:
1. Your heater was designed and approved for OUTDOOR use only. Do NOT use it inside a building, garage, or
any other enclosed area.
2. Make sure surrounding areas are free of combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors or
liquids.
3. Ensure that there is no obstruction to air ventilation. Be sure all gas connections are tight and there are no
leaks.
4. Be sure the cylinder cover is clear of debris. Be sure any component removed during assembly or servicing is
replaced and fastened prior to starting.
Before Lighting:
1. Heater should be thoroughly inspected before each use, and by a qualified service person at least annually. If
re-lighting a hot heater, always wait at least 5 minutes.
2. Inspect the hose assembly for evidence of excessive abrasion, cuts, or wear. Suspected areas should be leak
tested. If the hose leaks, it must be replaced prior to operation. Only use the replacement hose assembly
specified by the manufacturer.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Lighting:
NOTE: This heater is equipped with a Pilot Light that allows for safer startups and shutdowns. Pilot MUST be lit
before Main Burner can be started. For initial start or after any cylinder change, hold the control knob in for 2
minutes to purge air from all gas lines before proceeding.
1. Turn the Control Knob to the “OFF” position.
2. Fully open the LP cylinder valve.
3. Open the Viewing Hole by sliding the cover to the left.
4. Push Control Knob in and rotate to Pilot position.
5. Push and release the Igniter Button on the control panel
until flame is visible through Viewing Hole.
6. Release Control Knob after 30-60 seconds. Pilot light will
remain lit. If not, return to Step 1.
7. Turn Control Knob to ON. Main Burner will light immediately.
Flame is visible through Viewing Hole. If not, return to Step 1.
8. To increase the flame, turn the Control Knob counter clockwise
to HI. To decrease the flame, turn the Control Knob clockwise to LO.
If your some reason your igniter fails to deliver a spark, your
heater can be started by inserting a lit match or stick lighter
through the pilot Viewing Hole while pushing the Control Knob
in while it is in the Pilot position.
NOTE: If Pilot fails to remain lit, all valves should be closed and a
waiting period of at least 5 minutes should pass before
attempting to re-light.
9. To turn the appliance OFF, push down the Control Knob and turn
clockwise to the Pilot position. Burner will extinguish but Pilot will remain On. To extinguish Pilot, press in the
Control Knob and continue to turn clockwise to OFF.

8. Turn the gas cylinder valve to OFF or closed.
If you experience any ignition problems, please consult “Troubleshooting” on page 15.
Caution: Avoid inhaling fumes emitted from the heater’s first use. Smoke and odor from the burning of oils used in the manufacturing will
appear. Both smoke and odor will dissipate after approximately 30 minutes. The heater should NOT produce thick black smoke.
When Heater is ON:
Emitter screen will become bright red due to intense heat. The color is more visible at night. Burner will display
tongues of blue and yellow flame. These flames should not be yellow or produce thick black smoke, indicating an
obstruction of airflow through the burners. The flame should be blue with straight yellow tops. If excessive yellow
flame is detected, turn off heater and consult “Troubleshooting” on page 15.
Re-Lighting:
Note: For your safety, control knob cannot be turned OFF without first depressing the control knob and then
rotating to OFF.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
To enjoy years of outstanding performance from your heater, make sure you perform the following maintenance
activities on a regular basis:
Keep exterior surfaces clean.
1. Use soapy water for cleaning. Never use flammable or corrosive cleaning agents.
2. While cleaning your unit, be sure to keep the area around the burner and control compartment dry at all times.
Do not submerge the control valve assembly. If the gas control is submerged in water, do NOT use it. It must be
replaced.
3. Air flow must be unobstructed. Keep controls, burner, and circulating air passageways clean. Signs of possible
blockage include:
 Gas odor with extreme yellow tipping of flame.
 Heater does NOT reach the desired temperature.
 Heater glow is excessively uneven.
 Heater makes popping noise.
 Spiders and insects can nest in burner or orifices. This dangerous condition can damage heater and
render it unsafe for use. Clean burner holes by using a heavy-duty pipe cleaner. Compressed air may help
clear away smaller particles.
 Carbon deposits may create a fire hazard. Clean dome and burner screen with warm soapy water if any
carbon deposits develop.
Note: In a salt-air environment (such as near an ocean), corrosion occurs more quickly than normal. Frequently
check for corroded areas and repair them promptly.
TIP (FOR STAINLESS STEEL MODELS):
Use high-quality automobile wax to help maintain the appearance of your heater. Apply to exterior
surfaces from the post down. DO NOT apply to emitter screen or domes.
Storage:
Between uses:
 Turn Control Knob OFF.
 Disconnect LP source.
 Store heater upright in an area sheltered from direct contact with inclement weather (such as rain, sleet,
hail, snow, dust and debris).
 If desired, cover heater to protect exterior surfaces and to help prevent build-up in air passages. Never
leave LP cylinder exposed to direct sunlight or excessive heat.
Note: Wait until heater is cool before covering.
Service:
Only a qualified service person should repair gas passages and associated components.
Caution: Always allow heater to cool before attempting service.
