other foreign matter from the stack, lid assembly, and burner body components, inside and out.
Do not scrape or brush any rubber or plastic parts, instruction or I.D. plates, labeling or sightglass.
Clean burner assembly with a brush or dry rag. Carbon may build up after a period of use.
Wash. Wash exterior of heater and subassemblies (Overflow hose, Down-tube assembly, etc.) with a
damp cloth. Wipe all surfaces to remove any soot or other residues. Wipe the heater body, burner shell
assembly, rain cap assembly, and stack assembly with a damp cloth. Wipe all surfaces to remove any

wire brush (or equivalent) to remove any dirt buildup which will not come off by wiping.
