Figure 6

If your screw is not removed and you have reason to believe that you have a complete outside combustion system, contact your distributor to have your appliance inspected for the presence of the complete system. DO NOT assume that you have this system in place because you have an actuating lever present on your appliance front face.

WARNING: DO NOT OPERATE THE COMBUSTION AIR ACTUATOR UNLESS A COMPLETE OUTSIDE COMBUSTION AIR VENT SYSTEM HAS BEEN INSTALLED WITH YOUR APPLIANCE.

To provide outside combustion air to your appliance while it is in operation, locate the combustion air actuator along the right side of the appliance opening (refer to Figure 5 ).

To operate, push the end of the actuator to the left as shown in Figure 6, until it "pops" free of its "locked" position. Pull the actuator forward to open the combustion air door, and push it back to close.

To "lock" the combustion air door closed, ensure the actuator is pushed all the way back, then push the end of the actuators to the right until the step in the actuator moves behind the appliance front face within the slotted opening.
