Startup Procedure & Adjustment
Furnace must have a 115 VAC power supply properly connected
and grounded. Proper polarity must be maintained for correct
operation. In addition to the following start-up and adjustment
items, refer to further information in Operational Checks
section.

sealant compound or other suitable method to prevent air
leakage. For optimal performance verify that all do gaskets
are properly in place and replace as needed to prevent air
leakage.

Drain Trap Priming

The drain trap MUST be primed prior to furnace startup. To
prime, fill both sides of the drain trap with water. This en-
sures proper furnace drainage upon startup and prohibits the
possibility of flue gases escaping through the drain system.

Furnace Operation

Purge gas lines of air prior to startup. Be sure not purge lines into
an enclosed burner compartment. Follow NFPA 54, National
Fuel Gas Code 8.1 for proper purging methods. In Canada,
follow approved purging methods in B149.1-15.
Check for leaks using an approved chloride-free soap and
water solution, an electronic combustible gas detector,
or other approved method. Verify that all required kits
(propane gas, high altitude, etc.) have been appropriately
installed.
