OPERATING UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
OPERATING THE CONVECTIVE SPACE HEATER
This work package has information and instructions for startup, operating, refueling, shutdown, and
emergency shutdown of the heater.
PREPARATION FOR STARTING
Before operating the heater, you must be familiar with the heater controls. Refer to WP 0004 entitled
Controls, Indicators and Labels/Instruction Plates, to review the functions of controls and indicators
before operating the heater.
This heater is designed to operate with minimal operator intervention. Once the heater has been put into
operation, the only action required of the operator is adjusting the LOWER-HIGHER knob (1) (thermostat)
on the in-tent controller assembly (2) if the temperature in the tent becomes too hot or too cold.
Small, portable, shelter heaters of this type are not designed to be moved during
operation or before purge cycles are complete. Serious injury, skin burns, or death can
occur if the heater assembly is moved while operating or before the HEATER ON/ON-
HOLD advisory light goes OFF and the blower fans stop.
