OPERATING PRECAUTIONS

This is a kerosene, direct-fired, forced air heater. It's intended use is primar-
ily temporary heating of buildings under construction, alteration or repair.
Direct-Fired means that all of the combustion products enter the heated
space. Even though this heater operates very close to 100 percent com-
bustion efficiency, it still produces small amounts of carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide (called CO) is toxic. CO can build up in a heated space
and failure to provide adequate ventilation could result in death. The
symptoms of inadequate ventilation are:
headache
dizziness
burning eyes and nose
nausea
dry mouth or sore throat
Be sure to follow advice about ventilation in the Safety Precautions
section.
Forced Air means that a blower or fan pushes the air through the heater.
Proper combustion depends upon this air flow; therefore, the heater
must not be revised, modified or operated with parts removed or missing.
Likewise, safety systems must not be circumvented or modified in order to
operate the heater.
When the heater is to be operated in the presence of other people the
user is responsible for properly acquainting those present with the safety
precautions and instructions, and of the hazards involved.
