do not remove any internal compartment covers or
attempt any adjustment. Contact a qualified servicer at
once if an abnormal flame should develop.

Burner Flame

The burner flames should be inspected with the burner
compartment door installed. Flames should be stable, quiet, soft,
and blue (dust may cause orange tips but they must not be
yellow). Flames should extend directly outward from the burners
without curling, floating, or lifting off. Flames must not impinge on
the sides of the heat exchanger firing tubes.

and cooling speeds.
The cooling blower speed is shipped set on HIGH. High heat

match the installation requirements so as to provide the correct
heating temperature rise and the correct cooling CFM.
To adjust the circulator blower speed, proceed as follows:
1. Turn OFF power to the furnace.
2. Select the heating and cooling blower speeds that match the
3. Relocate desired motor leads to the circulator blower heat
