CAUTIONS
- SAFETY GUIDE -
WARNING!! RISK OF EXPLOSION / RISK OF FIRE
! NEVER use any fuel other than water-clear 1-K
kerosene.
! NEVER
use fuel such as gasoline, benzene, paint thinners or other oil compounds in this heater.
! NEVER
refill heater fuel tank when heater is operating or still hot.
! NEVER
use heater in areas where flammable vapors or gases may be present.
! NEVER fill heater fuel tank in living space; fill
tank outdoors.
! NEVER
store or transport kerosene in other than a metal or plastic container that is (1)acceptable for kerosene, (2) non-red in color, and (3) clearly marked “Kerosene”.
NEVER store kerosene in the living space; kerosene should be stored in a well ventilated place outside the living area.
! The unit is EXTREMELY HOT while in operation.
Due to high surface temperatures, keep children, clothing, furniture, and other combustible objects at least 36” away from top and front area.
!
RISK OF IN DOOR AIR POLLUTION USE HEATER ONLY IN WELL VENTILATED AREAS.
People with breathing problems should consult a physician before using the heater. In a house of typical construction, that is, one that is not of unusually tight construction due to heavy insulation and tight seals against air infiltration, an adequate supply of air for combustion and ventilation is provided through infiltration; however, if the heater is used in a small room where less than 200 cubic feet (5.7 m of air space is provided for each 1,000 BTU per hour of heater rating (considering the maximum burner adjustment), the door(s) to adjacent room(s) should be kept open or the window to the outside should be opened at least 1 inch (25.4 mm) to guard against potential buildup of indoor air pollution. DO NOT use the heater in a bathroom or any other small room with the door closed.
! NEVER use heater to heat or boil water or use as a
cooking appliance.
WARNING!!
FAILURE TO INSTALL, MAINTAIN, AND/OR OPERATE THIS KEROSENE HEATER ACCORDING
TO MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN CONDITIONS WHICH CAN PRODUCE BODILY INJURY AND/OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.
NOTE: The WARNING and IMPORTANT instructions
appearing in this manual are not meant to cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood that common sense, caution, and carefulness are factors which cannot be built into this heater. These factors must be supplied by the person(s) installing, maintaining, or operating the kerosene heater.
Always contact your dealer, distributor, service agent, or the manufacturer on any problems or conditions you do not understand.
! NEVER
leave heater operating if you intend to leave for any period of time. Always make sure to turn heater off and inspect to insure that it is completely extinguished prior to going to bed.
! NEVER leave heater unattended. ! NEVER use as a source of heat for drying objects. ! NEVER place objects on the top plate.
WARNING!! RISK OF BURNS
! NEVER operate the heater without the guard or
grille completely attlached.
IF POOR QUALITY KEROSENE is used a rapid accumulation of carbon and tar is likely. This may cause a strong odor and will destroy the wick. Additional heater damage may occur as the wick becomes more difficult to adjust. The use of poor quality fuel could also make the wick very hard to extinguish. Always make sure the fire is out. (See page 12, Extinguishing the Heater.)
ADJUSTMENT OF ROOM TEMPERATURE can not be changed by adjusting the heater. A Kerosene heater is either on or off.
There is no temperature adjustment. If heater output is reduced by lowering the wick in any way, improper combustion will occur producing odors and an accumulation of tar and carbon. If your room becomes too hot, open a door or a window or turn off the heater.

KEROSENE SHOULD ONLY BE STORED IN A BLUE CONTAINER THAT IS CLEARLY MARKED "KEROSENE". NEVER STORE KEROSENE IN A RED CONTAINER.
Red containers are associated with gasoline.
NEVER store kerosene in the living space. Kerosene should be stored in a well ventilated place
outside the living area.
NEVER use any fuel other than water-clear 1-K kerosene. NEVER use fuel such as gasoline, benzene, alcohol, white gas, camp stove fuel, paint thinners, or other oil
compounds in this heater. These are volatile fuels that can cause explosion or uncontrolled flames.
The best way to purchase kerosene is in a pre-packaged, metal or plastic, blue colored container. The second choice would be to buy it from a dealer who stores it in a 55 gallon drum. The third choice is to buy kerosene from a dealer who stores it in a large underground (or above ground) tank. Kerosene that is contaminated with even a small amount of water will prevent a kerosene heater from functioning properly. As you move from the first choice in purchasing kerosene (pre-packaged container) to the third choice (large storage tank), the likelihood of water being present from condensation increases. If you purchase kerosene in bulk, know your dealer.
It is
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to the operation of this heater that you use the proper grade of kerosene. The proper grade of kerosene is identified as
1-K Kerosene. DO NOT OPERATE THIS HEATER
WITH ANY FUEL OTHER THAN 1-K KEROSENE
! 1-K Kerosene has been refined to virtually eliminate contaminants such as sulphur, which can cause a rotten egg odor during operation of the heater.
D) INSTALLING CARRYING HANDLE:(Fig. 6)
Insert the carrying handle into the holes on the cabinet by aligning holes on brackets of top plate.
E) INSTALLING TOP GUARD:(Fig. 7)
Align the 2 brackets on the top guard with the 2 mounting brackets on the front and rear guards.
Secure each bracket with a screw. Make sure that the brackets on the top guard are positioned outside the mounting brackets on the front and rear guards.
F) INSTALLING BATTERIES. (Fig. 8)
Battery holder is located on the back of the heater.
Open the battery cover from the battery case.
Insert two(2) “C” cell batteries according to the plus(+)
and minus(-) markings inside of the holder.
Replace the battery cover to the heater.
G) Now your heater is completely assembled.(Fig. 9)
