Do not operate heater in enclosure unless exhaust gases are
piped outside. Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide, a
colorless, odorless, deadly poisonous gas. Failure to provide
proper elimination of the exhaust can cause severe illness or
Monitor operation of unit using senses of sight, hearing, touch, and
Look for signs of excessive vibration, fuel leaks, exhaust leaks,
arcing, overheating of heater and/or electrical components, and
Listen for abnormal noise that may indicate possible failures in
motor bearings, fans, fuel feed systems, combustion chamber,
and heat exchanger.
Touch cool portions of heater to determine vibration level.
Note unusual smells that may indicate overheating, exhaust
leaks, heat exchanger leaks, fuel leaks, incomplete combustion,
and faulty electrical circuits.
If inspection indicates combustion problem, open front access
door (1) and adjust fuel needle (2) as follows:
