SPACE HEATER ARCTIC (SHA)
OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
STARTING THE HEATER IN LIQUID FUEL MODE
Fire or Explosion
Never attempt to light a heater that may still be hot. Allow the heater to
cool sufficiently before lighting. Lighting a heater that is still hot may
result in fire/explosion!
SETTING THE FUEL FLOW CONTROL VALVE
Lift fuel selector control knob (2) on the Fuel Flow Control Valve (1) and set in accordance with the
outside temperature. There are two positions, ABOVE 250F and BELOW 250F. Pull the knob and rotate
it to the desired position. Release the control knob, making sure that the knob locks in the detent for the
Set fuel ON/OFF control (3) to ON.
Set flow adjustment knob (4) to HI; wait 2 to 5 minutes in order to allow the fuel flow control valve (1) and
burner up-tube (5) to fill with fuel.
Shake or tap hoses (6) to clear any air bubbles that may be trapped in the hoses.
Open the door assembly (7) and verify that the Burner Cover Assembly (8) has been installed in the door
frame (9). Shut and latch the door (7).
PRIMING THE BURNER
Open the heater lid (11).
Be sure that the down-tube (12) is securely fitted over the up-tube (5) inside the burner (10).
Hold the priming cup (13) under priming valve (14) on fuel supply hose. Open the valve (14) slowly and fill
the cup (13) with fuel. Shut valve (14) when cup is full.
Pour fuel into the bottom of burner (10). If the outside temperature is below 250F(-320C), pour an
additional cup of fuel into the bottom of the burner.
Take a short length of toilet tissue (or paper) and roll the paper into a ball. Soak up any excess fuel that
may remain in the cup (13); do not discard the paper.
Light the fuel soaked toilet tissue and toss it into the bottom of the burner (10).
Use the cleaning tool (15), if necessary, to make sure that the burning tissue reaches the bottom of the
burner (10) where it can ignite the priming fuel. Make sure that the burning tissue remains down in the
burner. Close the Lid Assembly (11).
When the heater has warmed up sufficiently and begins to give off heat (approximately 5-10 minutes),
gradually adjust the flow adjustment knob (4) to desired heat output.
