SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNINGS
IMPORTANT: Read this Owner’s Manual carefully and completely before trying to assemble, oper­ate, or service this heater. Improper use of this heater can cause seri­ous injury or death from burns, fire, explosion, electrical shock, and carbon monoxide poisoning.
DANGER: Carbon monoxide
poisoning may lead to death!
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Early
signs of carbon monoxide poisoning re­semble the flu, with headaches, dizziness, and/or nausea. If you have these signs, the heater may not be working properly. Get fresh air at once! Have heater serviced. Some people are more affected by carbon monoxide than others. These include preg­nant women, persons with heart or lung disease or anemia, those under the influence of alcohol, and those at high altitudes.
Make certain you read and understand all Warnings. Keep this manual for reference. It is your guide to safe and proper operation of this heater.
Use only kerosene or No. 1 fuel oil to avoid risk of fire or explosion. Never use gasoline, naphtha, paint thinners, al­cohol, or other highly flammable fuels.
Fueling a)Personnel involved with fueling shall
be qualified and thoroughly familiar with the manufacturer’s instructions and applicable federal, state, and lo­cal regulations regarding the safe fu­eling of heating units.
b)Only the type of fuel specified on the
heater’s data plate shall be used.
c) All flame, including the pilot light, if any,
shall be extinguished and the heater al­lowed to cool, prior to fueling.
d)During fueling, all fuel lines and fuel-
line connections shall be inspected for leaks. Any leaks shall be repaired prior to returning the heater to service.
e)At no time shall more than one day’s
supply of heater fuel be stored inside a building in the vicinity of the heater. Bulk fuel storage shall be outside the structure.
f) All fuel storage shall be located a
minimum of 25 feet from heaters, torches, welding equipment, and similar sources of ignition (excep­tion: the fuel reservoir integral with the heater unit).
g)Whenever possible, fuel storage shall
be confined to areas where floor pen­etrations do not permit fuel to drip onto or be ignited by a fire at lower elevation.
h)Fuel storage shall be in accordance
with the federal, state, or local author­ity having jurisdiction.
Never use heater where gasoline, paint thinner, or other highly flammable va­pors are present.
Follow all local ordinances and codes when using heater.
Heaters used in the vicinity of tarpau­lins, canvas, or similar enclosure mate­rials shall be located a safe distance from such materials. The recommended minimum safe distance is 10 feet. It is further recommended that these enclo­sure materials be of a fire retardant na­ture. These enclosure materials shall be securely fastened to prevent them from igniting or from upsetting the heater due to wind action.
Use only in well-vented areas. Before using heater, provide at least a three­square-foot opening of fresh, outside air for each 100,000 Btu/Hr of rating. This heater produces carbon monoxide, which is listed by the State of Califor­nia as a reproductive toxin under Propo­sition 65.
Use only in places free of flammable vapors or high dust content.
Use only the electrical voltage and fre­quency specified on model plate.
Use only a three-prong, grounded ex­tension cord.
Minimum heater clearances from com­bustibles:
Outlet: 8 Ft. Sides: 4 Ft. Top: 4 Ft. Rear: 4 Ft.
Locate heater on a stable and level sur­face if heater is hot or running or a fire may occur.
When moving or storing heater, keep heater in a level position or fuel spill­age may occur.
Keep children and animals away from heater.
Unplug heater when not in use.
When used with thermostat, heater may start anytime.
Never use heater in living or sleeping areas.
Never block air inlet (rear) or air outlet (front) of heater.
Never move, handle, refuel, or service a hot, operating, or plugged-in heater.
Never attach duct work to front or rear of heater.

FUELS
WARNING: Use only kerosene or No. 1 fuel oil to avoid risk of fire or explosion. Never use gasoline, naphtha, paint thinners, alcohol, or other highly flammable fuels.
Do not use heavy fuels such as No. 2 fuel oil or No. 2 Diesel. Using heavy fuels will result in a clogged fuel filter and/or nozzle.
IMPORTANT:
storage container. Be sure storage container is clean. Foreign matter such as rust, dirt, or water will cause the ignition control assembly to shut down the heater. Foreign matter may also require you to clean fuel system often.
Use a KEROSENE ONLY
VENTILATION
Follow the minimum fresh, outside air ventilation require­ments. If proper fresh, outside air ventilation is not provided, car­bon monoxide poisoning can oc­cur. Provide proper fresh, out­side air ventilation before run­ning heater.
Provide at least a three-square-foot opening of fresh, outside air for each 100,000 Btu/Hr rating. Provide extra fresh air if more heaters are being used.
Example:
quires one of the following:
• a two-car garage door (16 feet wide open­ing) raised three inches
• a single-car garage door (9 feet wide opening) raised five inches
• two 30 inch wide windows raised eight inches

THEORY OF OPERATION
The Fuel System: The air pump forces air through the air line. The air is then pushed through the nozzle. This air causes fuel to lift from the tank. A fine mist of fuel is sprayed into the combustion chamber.
The Air System: The motor turns the fan. The fan pushes air into and around the

combustion chamber. This air is heated and provides a stream of clean, hot air.
The Ignition System: The ignition con- trol assembly provides power to the ignitor. This ignites the fuel/air mixture in the com­bustion chamber.
The Flame-Out Control System: This system causes the heater to shut down if the flame goes out.

How Often
Flush every 150-200 hours of opera­tion or as needed
Replace every 500 hours of operation or once a year
Wash and dry with soap an water every 500 hours of operation or replace as needed
Clean twice a heating season or re­place as needed
No maintenance required
Clean each season or as needed
Not required/permanently lubricated
3. If any debris is noted in old fuel, add 1 or 2 quarts of clean kerosene to tank, stir, and drain again. This will prevent excess debris from clogging filters dur­ing future use.
4. Replace fuel cap and drain plug. Prop­erly dispose of old and dirty fuel. Check with local automotive service stations that recycle oil.
5. If storing, store heater in dry place. Make sure storage place is free of dust and corrosive fumes.
