Safety Precautions
WARNING
Asphyxiation Hazard
■ Do not use this heater for heating human living ■ Refer to the specification section of the heater’s
quarters.
Owner’s Manual, heater dataplate, or contact the L.B.
White Company to determine combustion air ventilation
■ Do not use in unventilated areas.
requirements of the heater.
■ The flow of combustion and ventilation air must not be
obstructed.
■ Lack of proper ventilation air will lead to improper
combustion.
■ Proper ventilation air must be provided to support the
combustion air requirements of the heater being used.
■ Improper combustion can lead to carbon monoxide
poisoning leading to serious injury or death. Symptoms
of carbon monoxide poisoning can include headaches,
dizziness and difficulty in breathing.
FUEL GAS ODOR
Propane gas and natural gas have man-made odorants added specifically for detection of fuel gas leaks.
If a gas leak occurs, you should be able to smell the fuel gas.
THAT’S YOUR SIGNAL TO GO INTO IMMEDIATE ACTION!
■ Do not take any action that could ignite the fuel gas. Do
not operate any electrical switches. Do not pull any
power supply or extension cords. Do not light matches
or any other source of flame. Do not use your
telephone.
■ Get everyone out of the building and away from the area
immediately.
■ Close all propane gas tank or cylinder fuel supply
valves, or the main fuel supply valve located at the
meter if you use natural gas.
■ Propane gas is heavier than air and may settle in low
areas. When you have reason to suspect a propane
leak, keep out of all low areas.
■ Use your neighbor’s phone and call your fuel gas
supplier and your fire department. Do not re-enter the
building or area.
■ Stay out of the building and away from the area until
declared safe by the firefighters and your fuel gas
supplier.
■ FINALLY, let the fuel gas service person and the
firefighters check for escaped gas. Have them air out
the building and area before you return. Properly
trained service people must repair the leak, check for
further leakages, and then relight the appliance for you.
ODOR FADING -- NO ODOR DETECTED
■ Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot
smell the odor of the man-made chemical added to
propane or natural gas. You must determine if you can
smell the odorant in these fuel gases.
■ Learn to recognize the odor of propane gas and natural
gas. Local propane gas dealers will be more than
happy to give you a scratch and sniff pamphlet. Use it
to become familiar with the fuel gas odor.
■ Smoking can decrease your ability to smell. Being
around an odor for a period of time can affect your
sensitivity to that particular odor.
■ The odorant in propane gas and natural gas is colorless
and the intensity of its odor can fade under some
circumstances.
■ If there is an underground leak, the movement of gas
through the soil can filter the odorant.
■ Propane gas odor may differ in intensity at different
levels. Since propane gas is heavier than air, there may
be more odor at lower levels.
■ Always be sensitive to the slightest gas odor. If you
continue to detect any gas odor, no matter how small,
treat it as a serious leak. Immediately go into action as
discussed previously.
ATTENTION -- CRITICAL POINTS TO REMEMBER!
■ Propane gas has a distinctive odor. Learn to recognize
these odors. (Reference Fuel Gas Odor and Odor Fading
sections above.
■ Even if you are not properly trained in the service and
repair of the heater, ALWAYS be consciously aware of
the odors of propane gas and natural gas.
■ If you have not been properly trained in repair and service
of propane gas then do not attempt to light heater,
perform service or repairs, or make any adjustments to
the heater on the propane gas fuel system.
■ A periodic sniff test around the heater or at the heater’s
joints; i.e. hose, connections, etc., is a good safety
practice under any conditions. If you smell even a small
amount of gas, CONTACT YOUR FUEL GAS SUPPLIER
IMMEDIATELY. DO NOT WAIT!

people using and visiting the structure.
16. The heater shall be located so that rain, ice, or snow
drainage from the structure does not affect heater
operation. If the heater is located outside, it must be
located above any pooled or standing water. A
surrounding trench is recommended to drain any rain,
ice or snow away from the unit.
17. The ground and surrounding terrain must be cleared
of any combustible vegetation and other combustible
materials when the heater is mounted outside.
18. Eventually, like all electrical/mechanical devices, the
thermostat can fail. Thermostat failure may result in
an underheating condition. The thermostat should be
tested to make sure it turns the heater on and off
within a temperature differential of ±3°F.
19. Take time to understand how to operate and maintain
the heater by using this Owner’s Manual. Make sure
you know how to shut off the gas supply to the
building and also to the individual heater. Contact
your fuel gas supplier if you have any questions.
20. Any defects found in performing any of the service or
maintenance procedures must be eliminated and
defective parts replaced immediately. The heater
must be retested by properly qualified service
personnel before placing the heater back into use.
PROPANE GAS SUPPLY SIZING
The vaporization of propane is affected by several factors:
the surface area of the container, the liquid level of
propane, temperature surrounding the container, and the
relative humidity. All of these factors are specific to a site.
Therefore, a degree of experience and judgement is
required to select the proper propane supply.
Although experience is the best guide, the following
recommendations can be used as a starting point. The
table is based on experience in northern climates where
cold weather and high humidity are prevalent in the winter.
If more or less favorable conditions prevail at a specific site,
adjustments can be made on the basis of experience.

Heater Component Function
Air Proving Switch
Safety device used to insure that the proper air flow is being
achieved before the gas valve is opened.
Burner
Cast iron component used to channel gas and provide an
area at which the fuel may ignite.
Burner Orifice
Brass metering device used to feed gas to burner at a
specific rate.
Direct Spark Ignition Control Module
Electronic printed circuit board which sends and receives
voltages to various controls in an automatic ignition system.
An important safety feature of the control board is that it will
shut down the entire heater, thereby stopping the flow of
fuel gas if burner flame goes out.
Fan Housing
Chamber used for delivering air for efficient air movement.
Fan Wheel
Component used in conjunction with the motor and fan
housing to pull the hot air from heater and blow it into room
for heating (also known as a squirrel cage).
Gas Control Valve
Electrical device consisting of a low pressure regulator and
electrical solenoids used for the control of gas flow to the
burner assembly. A feature of the control valve is a built-in
gas shut off which may be used to isolate the heater from
its gas supply when servicing.
Gas Hose
Flexible connector used to convey gas from supply line in
building to heater.
Heat Chamber
Metal “fire box” within the appliance that provides an area
where burner flame mixes with combustion air, thereby
providing heat.
High Limit Switch
Safety device wired into the control system which is used to
break an electrical circuit to the gas control valve in event of
overheat situation.
Igniter
Ignition device used on automatic direct spark ignition
control systems. Ignites gas by spark.
Motor
Electric device used to force preheated air through the
heater and to circulate heat within a certain area. Converts
electrical energy into mechanical energy.
Regulator
Mechanical device used in gas distribution systems to
reduce a higher inlet pressure to a preset lower pressure.
The regulator is responsible to supply a steady outlet
pressure to the heater(s) despite changes in inlet pressure,
heater demand and weather conditions.
Selector Switch
Electrical device which is used to allow the end user to use
the heater in either a heating or ventilation application.
Status Light
A green light emitting diode (L.E.D.) wired into the electrical
circuit. Provides an easily recognizable indication of heater
operation.
Thermostat
Electrical device used as an automatic “on/off” switch
which will respond to changes in temperature in a certain
area. Can be wired so contacts in the thermostat open or
close on temperature increase or decrease.
Transformer
Electrical control used to accept line power supply primary
voltage and reduce it to lower secondary voltage to operate
certain control systems.
