b. Side Panels and Louver Linkage. Right and left side panels cover the entire area below the shelf. Both panels
are fastened with stud turnlock fasteners, and have louvers for air intake near the rear of the heater. A louver linkage
operated from the front panel of the heater controls the louver positions. When the handle is moved back and forth, one
set of louvers opens while the other closes.

panels provide access to the most frequently adjusted and serviced components. The bottom cover, located on the side
opposite the discharge outlet, can be removed for additional air intake if the louvers do not provide enough air.
