Lighting the Heater. Light the fuel soaked toilet tissue (1) with a match and push it into the sight glass
opening (2) so that it falls to the bottom of the burner where it can ignite the priming fuel. Use the primer
bulb rod if necessary to push the burning tissue to the bottom of the burner. Make sure that the burning
tissue remains down in the burner. Close the sight glass lid (3).
If the heater does not start or goes out, allow the unit to cool completely and repeat the starting
procedure. Do not attempt to relight a hot heater.
When the heater has warmed up sufficiently and begins to give off heat (approximately 5-10 minutes),
gradually adjust the burner rate control (4) to desired heat output. For light fuels and ususal conditions
(i.e. JP-8 and kerosene) use lower settings (i.e. Settings 1-5). Heavier fuels (i.e. DF-2) can operate on
Be sure to perform DURING Operation Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) as
detailed in WP 0010 while the heater is in operation.
