floor and throughout the shelter. The TEF is self powered and generates its own power directly from the
heat radiated by the space heater. As the TEF base plate heats up, that heat is converted into electrical
energy to operate the fan. The TEF is an optional piece of equipment and is listed in the Additional
Authorization Items list (WP 0045).
To unpack the TEF from its storage container (3), release the latches (4) that secure the cover (5) and
remove. Grasp the TEF by the handle (6) mounted on the grill and lift out of the container (3).
To operate the TEF, remove the sight glass cover (7) from the top of the lid assembly (8) and allow it to
hang over the left side of the heater. Place the TEF (1) in position on the lid assembly (8) of the SHA.
