DANGER

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION

A 15-Amp, 120-Volt, 60 Hz circuit with a properly grounded outlet is required. Preferably, the item will be on a dedicated circuit, as other appliances on the same circuit may cause the circuit breaker to trip or the fuse to blow when the heater is in operation. The unit comes standard with a 6 ft. (1.8 m) long three wire cord, exiting the right side of the item. Plan the installation to avoid the use of an extension cord. Extension cords are for temporary use only. If an extension cord must be used, it must be UL/CSA certified, rated at 15A (1875W), 125V maximum with 14 AWG minimum and constructed of two current carrying conductors with ground. A heavy duty extension cord with the shortest length possible for the connection is recommended and must not be longer than 50 ft. (15.2 m). Do not coil or cover the extension cord.

WARNING: Electrical outlet wiring must comply with local building codes and other applicable regulations to reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock and injury to persons.

WARNING: Do not use this fireplace if any part of it has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the fireplace and replace any part of the electrical system which has been under water.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This heater is for use on 120 volts. The cord has a plug as shown at (A) in Figure 1. An adapter as shown at (C) is available for connecting three-blade grounding-type plugs to two-slot receptacles. The green grounding lug extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. The adapter should not be used if a three-slot grounded receptacle is available.
