IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION DO NOT OPERATE THIS APPLIANCE WITHOUT FRONT PANEL INSTALLED. • An unvented room heater having an input rating of more than 6,000 Btu per hour shall not be installed in a bathroom. • An unvented room heater having an input rating of more than 10,000 Btu per hour shall not be installed in a bedroom or bathroom.
SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP-GAS Propane (LP-Gas) is a ﬂammable gas which can cause ﬁres and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and colorless. You may not know all the following safety precau- tions which can protect both you and your family from an accident.
Instructions to Installer 1. Installer must leave instruction manual with owner after installation. 2. Installer must have owner ﬁll out and mail warranty card supplied with unvented room heater. 3. Installer should show owner how to start and operate unvented room heater.
WATER VAPOR: A BY-PRODUCT OF UNVENTED ROOM HEATERS Water vapor is a by-product of gas combustion. An unvented room heater produces approximately one (1) ounce (30ml) of water for every 1,000 BTU’s (.3KW’s) of gas input per hour. Unvented room heaters must be used as supplemental heat (a room) rather than a primary heat source (an entire house).
The gas line can be routed either through the ﬂoor or wall. The gas line opening should be made at this time. Location of the opening will be determined by the position of ﬂoor joists and the valve and union used for servicing. Gas Supply Check all local codes for requirements, especially for the size and type of gas supply line required.

MAIN BURNER FLAME CHARACTERISTICS SR-10T, SR-18T and SR-30T Main Burner Flame (Figure12) The main burner ﬂame will have a red-orange glow over the surface of the ceramic plaques. A few small, hairline cracks may form over the surface of the ceramic plaques or at the edges of the ceramic plaques where they have been cemented into position on the burner assembly frame.
PILOT FLAME CHARACTERISTICS The correct ﬂame will be blue and will extend beyond the ther- mocouple. The ﬂame will surround the thermocouple just below the tip. A slight yellow ﬂame may occur where the pilot ﬂame and main burner ﬂame meet. Figure 13 Oxygen Depletion Sensor Pilot (Figure 14) When the pilot has a large yellow tip ﬂame, clean the Oxygen...
APPLIANCE MAINTENANCE Removing Pilot/Thermocouple From Main Burner Assembly Attention: The thermocouple CAN NOT be replaced as an individual item. You must order a new pilot when replacing thermocouple. 1. Turn OFF gas supply to the heater. 2. Turn OFF electrical supply to the heater if optional blower is installed in heater.
