loss of efficiency and, in some cases, fire.
To ensure dependable and efficient heating operation, the heat
exchanger should be checked by a qualified maintenance person
before each heating season, and cleaned when necessary. This
checkout should not be attempted by anyone not having the
required expertise and equipment to properly do the job. Checking
and/or cleaning the heat exchanger involves removing the gas
controls assembly and the flue collector box cover and, when
completed, reinstalling the gas controls assembly for proper
operation. Also, the flue collector box cover must be replaced
correctly so that a proper seal is maintained. Contact your dealer
for the required periodic maintenance.
Air Filters
Air filter(s) should be checked at least every 3 or 4 weeks and
changed or cleaned whenever it becomes dirty. Dirty filters
produce excessive stress on the blower motor and can cause the
motor to overheat and shut down. Table 1 indicates the correct
filter size for your unit. Refer to Fig. 3 to access the filter(s).
To replace or inspect filter(s) (or accessory filter rack when
Fans and Fan Motor
