DO NOT use it inside a building, garage, or any other enclosed area.

• Make sure surrounding areas are free of combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors or liquids.

• Ensure that there is no obstruction to air ventilation.

• Be sure all gas connections are tight and there are no leaks.

• Be sure the access panel is clear of debris.

• Be sure any component removed during assembly or servicing is replaced and fastened prior to starting.

Before Lighting

• Heater should be thoroughly inspected before each use, and by a qualified service person at least annually.

• If relighting a hot heater, always wait at least 5 minutes.

• 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 manufacturer.

• If for some reason your ignitor fails to deliver a spark, your heater can be started by inserting a lit match through the pilot view hole while pushing the control knob in while in the PILOT position.

If you experience any ignition problem consult “Troubleshooting” on page 16.

Caution: Avoid inhaling fumes emitted from the heater’s first use.

Smoke and odor from the burning of oils used in manufacturing will appear. Both smoke and odor will dissipate after approximately 30 minutes. The heater should NOT produce thick black smoke.

Note:

The burner may be noisy when initially turned on. To eliminate excessive noise from the burner, turn the Control Knob to the Pilot position.

Then, turn the knob to the level of heat desired.

WARNING

FOR YOUR SAFETY

Be careful when attempting to manually ignite this heater.

Holding in the control know for more than 10 seconds before igniting the gas will cause a ball of flame upon ignition.

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 16.

Re-lighting

Note:

For your safety, Control Knob cannot be turned OFF without first depressing Control Knob in PILOT position and then rotating it to OFF.

Turn Control Knob to OFF.

Wait at least 5 minutes, to let gas dissipate, before attempting to relight

Pilot.

Repeat the “Lighting” steps on prior page.

Shut Down

Turn Control Knob clockwise to Pilot. (Normally, burner will make a slight popping sound when extinguished.) Burner will extinguish but Pilot will remain ON.

To extinguish Pilot, depress Control Knob and continue to turn it clockwise to OFF.

Turn Cylinder Valve clockwise to OFF and disconnect Regulator when heater is not in use.

Note:

After use, some discoloration of the emitter screen is normal.

WARNING

FOR YOUR SAFETY

Heater will be hot after use.

Handle with extreme care.

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.

Use warm soapy water for cleaning. Never use flammable or corrosive cleaning agents.

While cleaning your unit, be sure to keep the area around the burner and pilot assembly 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.

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 noises.

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 emitter 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:

Use high-quality automobile wax to help maintain the appearance of your heater. Apply to exterior surfaces from the pole down. Do not apply to emitter screen or domes.
