If you experience any ignition problem consult “Troubleshooting” on page 17..

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..

When heater is ON:

WARNING

Heater will be hot after use. Handle with extreme care.

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 17..

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..
