FURNACE DESCRIPTION & INSTALLATION OPTIONS
Your NORSEMAN™ Solid Fuel Warm Air Furnace
is designed to provide supplemental or central heating
for your home. This solid fuel furnace may be installed
in conjunction with a central furnace that is in proper
operating condition and meets all national and/or
local building codes, safety standards, required controls
and has been installed in accordance with appropriate
standards of the National Fire Protection Association
and in accordance with the clearances specified on the
furnace nameplate.
Installation of NORSEMAN™ Furnaces must
be accomplished by a qualified heating contractor
(one who is engaged in, and is responsible for, or is
thoroughly familiar with the installation and operation
of gas, oil, and solid fuel burning heating appliances,
who is experienced in such work and familiar with all
the requirements of the authority having jurisdiction.)
The installation shall be in strict accordance with the
manufacturer’s installation instructions furnished with
the solid fuel furnace.
The chimney connector of the furnace is to be
installed to provide clearances to combustible materials not less than specified in the individual classifications and marked on the furnace. The chimney must
be suitable for use with residential type or building
heating appliances which burn solid fuel. DO NOT
CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE
SERVING ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
The furnace is designed to operate in either parallel air flow arrangement with a central
furnace as shown in the diagrams or as a stand alone
central furnace. (See connection option diagrams,
figures 17 – 23, on pages 19 – 22.)
CENTRAL FURNACE INSTALLATION
As a central fur nace, the unit functions
independently of any other heating system. The
blower(s) will come on when the plenum temperature
reaches the setting on the blower control.
ate simultaneously. For the most efficient use of your
NORSEMAN™ Warm Air Furnace, it is recommended
that it be fired as much as possible in order to reduce
the demand on the central heating system. An optional
forced draft kit (Model DK-50) is available that operates
from a wall thermostat. When the temperature falls
below the setting on the wall thermostat, the forced
draft will come on.
The warm air supply outlet of the
NORSEMAN™ Furnace MUST NOT BE CONNECTED TO THE COLD AIR RETURN of the
central heating furnace because of the possibility of
overheating components of the central furnace and
causing it to operate outside the specifications for which
it was designed.
The operating external static pressure and air
temperature rise of existing furnace must be within ratings marked on the central furnace nameplate. Test for
proper operation of the central furnace after installation
of the supplementary furnace.
FURNACE SIZING
When using a NORSEMAN™ furnace in parallel
with an existing central heating furnace it is important
to select a size that is compatible with the existing unit.
For best results, the BTU rating of the NORSEMAN™
furnace should be equal to or less than the rating of
your existing furnace.
NOTICE: Installing an add-on furnace that
exceeds the listed BTU rating of the existing heating appliance may create an unsafe operating
condition.
Seek the services of a professional HVAC contractor if you have questions regarding your duct supply
system.
PARALLEL INSTALLATION
When the NORSEMAN™ War m Air Furnace is installed in parallel with an existing central heating furnace, it is designed to turn on the
central unit blower whenever the Warm Air Furnace blower turns on. The NORSEMAN™ blower
will only come on when the temperature in the
plenum has reached the setting on the blower
control. This insures there will be sufficient warm air
in the system to provide for efficient operation. When
the central system thermostat calls for heat, the central
system will operate by igniting the burner and turning
on the blower. It is possible that both systems will operVGZ-018 / 051809.0

CHIMNEY CONNECTIONS
DRAFT
Chimneys perform two functions.
1). As a means of exhausting smoke and flue gases
which are the result of fuel combustion.
2). The chimney provides “draft” which allows oxygen
to be continuously introduced into the appliance,
so that proper combustion is possible.
NOTE: The furnace does NOT create draft. Draft
is a function of the chimney. A draft of 0.05 water column
0.1 Pa) is required for proper drafting to prevent backpuffing, smoke spillage, and to maximize performance.
(Gauges to measure chimney draft are readily available
at furnace shops and are economical to purchase or
rent.) Do not exceed draft setting. Over firing and risk
of fire can occur.
As of April 1, 1987 all coal stoves must be installed
using a factory built chimney that meets the “Type HT”
requirement of UL 103 (when using a factory built
chimney).
When using a pre-existing chimney, have it’s condition and installation inspected before using. Make sure
that the chimney meets all of the UL rating requirements
listed above. Be aware that not all manufactured chimney is of the UL 103 HT type.
NOTE: It is recommended that you contact a
licensed heating and cooling contractor (consult
your local yellow pages) for chimney installation.
Manufactured chimney with the proper required UL
listing is available from most home centers, hardware
stores, and HVAC supply stores.
If you have access to the internet, you may wish
to view chimney manufacturers’ information on-line.
See, www.duravent.com, www.selkirkinc.com, or
www.mtlfab.com.
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION POINTS
1. Size the chimney flue to the furnace pipe. (6” outlet
pipe = 6” chimney flue)
2. Avoid using elbows except as necessar y.
Elbows reduce draft, no more than two elbows
should be used in any chimney run.
3. Make sure all horizontal runs of connector pipe have
a minimum outward rise of 1/4” per horizontal foot.
This allows any condensation or creosote buildup
to run back into the firebox.
MANUFACTURED CHIMNEY
R E F E R TO C H I M N E Y A N D C H I M N E Y
CONNECTOR MAKER’S INSTRUCTIONS FOR
INSTALLATION AND USE.
Carefully follow chimney manufacturer’s
instructions. Use only a listed chimney. If your chimney
starts at the ceiling (figures 13 & 14) you will need
enough 6” round black connector pipe to reach the ceiling. The top of the chimney must be at least three (3)
feet above the roof and be at least two (2) feet higher
than any point of the roof within ten (10) feet (figure 13).
Use only 6” diameter listed chimney UL 103 HT. Chimney made to this listing is High Temperature rated to
2100 degrees Fahrenheit. Use chimney from only one
manufacturer. Never mix brands. Carefully follow the
chimney manufacturer’s stated requirements and clearances. Use the chimney manufacturer’s attic guards,
roof supports, flashing and fire stops when passing
through a ceiling. Use a listed thimble when passing
through a combustible wall. Do not use makeshift compromises during installation. NEVER USE A SINGLEWALL CONNECTION PIPE AS A CHIMNEY!

MASONRY CHIMNEY
Before using an existing masonry chimney,
clean the chimney, inspect the flue liner and make
any repairs needed to be sure it is safe to use. Make
repairs before attaching the furnace. The connector furnace pipe and fittings you will need to connect directly to a masonry chimney are shown in
figure 11 and 12.
If the connector furnace pipe must go through a
combustible wall before entering the masonry chimney,
consult a qualified mason or chimney dealer. The installation must conform to local building and fire codes and
latest edition of NFPA 211.

CONNECTOR PIPE INSTALLATION continued…
6. It is recommended that no more than two (2)
90° bends be used in the connector pipe installation. The use of more than two 90° bends
may decrease the amount of draft and possibly
cause smoke spillage. Where possible, use only
corrugated (nonadjustable) elbows. These
are much more airtight.
7. The connector pipe must not pass through an attic
or roof space, closet, any concealed space, floor,
ceiling, wall or combustible construction. (See
Chimney Connections, page 10). A UL 103 HT
Listed chimney must be used from the first penetration of ceiling or wall to the chimney cap.
WARNING: RISK OF FIRE. NEVER USE SINGLE
WALL CONNECTOR PIPE AS A CHIMNEY – A
HOUSE FIRE COULD RESULT.
8. The chimney connector may include a section for
a barometric draft regulator between the furnace
and the chimney (figures 2, 11 & 13). The optional
barometric draft regulator must be installed in the
same room (same pressure zone) as the furnace.
9. Install the optional barometric draft regulator
strictly in accordance with the instructions that are
provided with the barometric draft regulator.
BAROMETRIC DRAFT REGULATOR SETTING
NOTE: This OPTIONAL device is NOT included with
the furnace. A Barometric Draft Regulator (Vogelzang Model BD-06) is used to overcome excessive
draft.
1. Drill a hole in the chimney connector within 18˝ of
the flue collar below the barometric draft regulator
just large enough for the tube of the manometer.
2. Build a fire after all chimney connections have been
made.
3. Use the manometer to measure the draft in the
flue.
4. Adjust the Barometric Draft Regulator to obtain
a draft of 0.05˝ W.C. (0.1 Pa) under stable fire
conditions.
WARNING: RISK OF FIRE. DO NOT OPERATE
WITH FLUE DRAFT EXCEEDING 0.05˝ WATER
COLUMN (0.1 Pa).
5. After all adjustments have been made, seal
the hole made for the manometer tube with
furnace cement.

VGZ-018 / 051809.0
FUEL(S)
This furnace is designed to burn wood or
coal fuel only.
COAL FUEL
Low ash content (2% to 6%) coal is recommended.
Purchase “washed” coal in chestnut, egg, furnace, or
nut-sizes (1-3/4 to 4 inch diameter) for residential furnaces. Any of the specialty packaged fireplace coals can
also be used. (Do not use wax-type coal “bricks”)
WARNING: FOR BEST RESULTS USE SOLID,
BITUMINOUS COAL. NEVER USE MANUFACTURED COAL “BRICKS” MADE OF COAL DUST
WITH WAX-TYPE BINDER. DO NOT BURN
GARBAGE, OIL OR FLAMMABLE FLUIDS.
STORE FUEL IN DRY, WELL VENTILATED
AREA.
WOOD FUEL
Hardwood, 18˝ to 26˝ should be split and air dried
(seasoned) for 6 months to provide proper burning
without excessive creosote buildup.
LIGHTING
NOTE: On first use build three (3) small fires
to “season” cast iron parts and prevent cracking.
Allow furnace to cool between firings.
1. Set the thermostat on “HIGH” to provide maximum
draft.
2. Open the feed door and place paper and kindling
on the grate for starting the fire.
3. Light fire, close and secure the feed door.
4. Add wood or about 15 pounds of coal after fire
is burning briskly. Use care not to smother the
kindling fire when adding coal.
5. Set the thermostat to maintain desired temp e ra t u r e. “ M E D I U M ” s e t t i n g i s n o r m a l l y
satisfactor y. Set higher or lower for your
personal comfort level.
ADDING FUEL
When starting fires, add small amounts of fuel
each hour or so instead of piling large quantities
of fuel every 3 to 5 hours. As you become more
familiar with the operation of your furnace, it is
possible to add fuel to burn for longer periods of time, but
doing so carelessly will promote incomplete combustion and considerable sooting, along with a very dirty,
inefficient fire.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS continued …
1. Set thermostat to “HIGH” before opening the feed
door.
2. Never smother the fire when adding fuel (especially
coal.) Incomplete combustion of fresh coal will
cause gas accumulation and a mild smoky explosion, known as back puffing, will occur:
– Add fresh kindling if the bed of coals has
cooled.
– Add up to 20 lbs. of coal or wood to a convenient
level. Never add fuel above the top of the firebrick.
– Stir the coals and watch the fire. Be sure new coal
is burning before you close the doors and turn the
thermostat down.
3. At least once every 12 hours of operation crank
the roller grate system to dump ‘clinkers’ and ash
into the ash pan. A couple of gentle “cranks”, is all
that is required. Stop cranking when you observe
a few red coals falling into the ash pan. Excessive
cranking can expose the grates to very high heat
and warp or damage the grates.
4. Empty ash pan regularly. Do not allow ashes
to pile up to the grate. If ashes build up to
the grate, it can warp and burnout will occur.
If allowed to overfill, ashes may spill when
removing the pan.
5. Properly dispose of hot ashes (see Safety
Instructions, item #17 on page 3).
COAL BURNING TIPS
The size of coal fuel is critical - too large and it won’t
burn well, too small and it will smother the fire creating
excessive smoke and gases. Purchase Bituminous coal
“nuggets” that are 1-3/4” to 4” diameter and that have
been “cleaned” to remove rocks and other minerals.
Bituminous coal is recommended for ease of use
but produces a greater amount of volatile gases so it is
important to build and refresh coal fires properly. Extra
maintenance will also be required to remove accumulated soot on heating surfaces and pipes.
All fires should be initially started using wood kindling. Hardwood is best as it creates a hotter bed of
coals that is necessary to ignite the coal.
Once a hot bed of wood coals has been established
an initial layer of coal may be placed in the firebox. Due
to the high amount of volatile gas produced by coal, the
initial flames will be long and of an orange or yellow
color accompanied by quite a bit of smoke. As the gas
is burned off the flames will become shorter, the color
will change and less smoke will be produced.
Once the fire is well established, add coal to the
center of the firebox in a conical arrangement. The high-
Page 16 / NORSEMAN™ 1500/2500 FURNACE
est part of the fuel should be in the center of the fire box.
This allows the heat to drive off the volatile gases and
the turbulence created causes a more efficient burn.
Remember to allow enough secondary air to enter
the fire box and keep the stove pipe damper open to
properly burn off the volatile gases. You will have to
experiment with your particular setup (fire construction, fuel load, spin draft control, damper and automatic
settings) as no two arrangements of furnace/chimney
are the same.
When refueling a coal fire, use a poker to break
up any crust that may have formed being careful not to
mix the coal which may increase the chance of forming
“clinkers.”
BANKING A COAL FIRE
A fire should be banked for extended operation
without tending, such as overnight. This is accomplished by heaping the fuel along the sides and back
of the fire box so that the fire gradually burns through
the fuel. This reduces the intensity of the fire without
letting it go out.
Use the same procedures as in refueling but without shaking the grates. The layer of ash will help to
reduce the intensity of the fire. After loading the fuel
in this manner, let the fire establish itself for about 30
minutes then close the damper and adjust the automatic control to a point so that the house does not get
too cold. Make sure you leave yourself enough time to
bank the fire before leaving or retiring so you can make
the necessary adjustments after the fire has become
well established.
REVIVING A FIRE
To revive a fire that has almost gone out, increase
the draft through the grates by opening the ash door
and stove pipe damper and closing the door spin draft
control(s). Place a thin layer of new coal over the entire
fire but DO NOT SHAKE the fire grates. Doing so may
cause the live coals to drop through the grates. Once
the fresh layer of coal has ignited you may shake the
grates (slightly) and refuel as usual.
CAUTION: DO NOT SMOTHER A FIRE WHEN
ADDING COAL. GASES DRIVEN OFF FROM
FRESH COAL MUST BE BURNED OR THEY MAY
ACCUMULATE AND EXPLODE. WHENEVER REFUELING, OPEN THE PIPE DAMPER AND TURN
THE THERMOSTAT DAMPER TO HIGH BEFORE
OPENING THE DOOR TO ALLOW ANY ACCUMULATED GASES TO BE BURNED OFF.
VGZ-018 / 051809.0
BLOWER LIMIT CONTROL SETTINGS
The temperature in the plenum of the warm air
furnace at which the blower turns on or off, is controlled
by the blower limit control settings. Indicators in the
control may be adjusted (see figures 7 & 8, page 10)
through their entire range of settings to achieve the
desired warm air output (see figure 15).
Move both pointers towards the right (counter
clockwise) – this increases the temperature setting at
which the blower will turn on and off. Move both pointers
towards the left (clockwise) – this decreases the on/off
temperature setting. Increasing the distance between
the pointers increases the time the blower will run on
each warm air cycle.
Fig. 15 – Blower Limit Control Settings
AIR FILTER CARE & REPLACEMENT
Start each heating season with a clean filter. Air filters should be checked on a regular basis and replaced
if necessary. Proper air flow into the cold air return is
critical to the safe operation of this heating appliance.
Check at least monthly during the heating season.
If you experience a power failure, remove the filter
and follow the Power Failure Instructions below.
POWER FAILURE INSTRUCTIONS
Operation during power loss:
Do not expect to keep home at normal temperatures.
1. Remove air filter if provided.
2. Reduce fire to a low burn.
3. Set bimetal thermostat on LOW setting and set spin
draft on ash door to a minimum of one turn open.
4. Do not load fuel above bottom of feed door.
BLOWER FAN AND MOTOR CARE
Oil blower motor(s) twice a year. Add five drops of
light weight (SAE 20) oil to each oiler tube. If the blower
and fan accumulate moderate to heavy dust, vacuum,
wipe and/or blow dust from motor housing and fan.

CHIMNEY MAINTENANCE
CHIMNEY DRAFT
CREOSOTE – Formation and Removal
NOTE: A DRAFT READING OF 0.05 W.C.
(WATER COLUMN) IS SUGGESTED FOR PROPER
BURNING OF THIS FURNACE.
Do not expect the furnace to draw. Draft is a function of the chimney, NOT the furnace. Smoke spillage
into the house or excessive buildup of condensation
or soot in the chimney are warnings that the chimney
is not functioning properly. Correct the problem before
using the furnace. Following are some possible causes
for improper draft.
1. The connector stovepipe may be pushed into the
chimney too far, stopping the draft (figure 14, page
13).
2. If the chimney is operating too cool, water will
condense in the chimney and run back into the
furnace. Soot formation will be rapid and may block
the chimney. Operate the furnace at a high enough
fire level to keep the chimney warm preventing this
condensation.
3. If the fire burns well but sometimes smokes or burns
slowly, it may be caused by the chimney top being
lower than another part of the house or a nearby
tree. The wind blowing over a house or tree falls on
top of the chimney like water over a dam, beating
down the smoke. The top of the chimney should be
at least three (3) feet above the roof and be at least
two (2) feet higher than any point of the roof within
ten (10) feet.
When wood or coal is bur ned slowly, it
produces tar and other organic vapors which
combine with expelled moisture to form creosote. The
creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney
flue of a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue
accumulates on the flue lining. If ignited, this creosote
creates an extremely hot fire which may ignite surrounding materials resulting in a building fire.
The chimney connector and chimney should be inspected at least twice a month during the heating season to determine if a creosote buildup has occurred.
If creosote has accumulated, it should be removed. Failure to remove creosote may result
in ignition and may cause a house/building fire.
Creosote may be removed using a chimney brush
or other commonly available materials from your
local hardware retailer.
Chimney fires burn very hot. If the chimney connector should glow red, immediately call the fire department, then reduce the fire by closing the inlet air control
and pour a large quantity of coarse salt, baking soda,
or cool ashes on top of the fire in the firebox.
WARNING – RISK OF FIRE:
DO NOT OPERATE WITH FLUE DRAFT EXCEEDING 0.05 IN. (0.1 PA) WATER COLUMN.
WARNING – RISK OF FIRE
INSPECT AND CLEAN FLUES AND CHIMNEY
REGULARLY. SLOW BURNING FIRES AND
EXTENDED USE MAY CAUSE EXCESSIVE
CREOSOTE BUILDUP.
IGNITION OF CREOSOTE OR OVER FIRING MAY
CAUSE A CHIMNEY FIRE. CHIMNEY FIRES
BURN EXTREMELY HOT AND MAY CAUSE
IGNITION OF WALL STUDS OR RAFTERS
WHICH WERE ASSUMED TO BE A SAFE
DISTANCE FROM THE CHIMNEY.
IN CASE OF A CHIMNEY FIRE CALL THE FIRE
DEPARTMENT IMMEDIATELY.
IF A CHIMNEY FIRE HAS OCCURRED, HAVE
YOUR CHIMNEY INSPECTED BY A QUALIFIED
PERSON BEFORE USING AGAIN.
END OF SEASON MAINTENANCE
Remove all accumulated ash from inside the fire
box and ash drawer compartment. Ash will absorb
moisture and can cause corrosion.
