OPERATING THE THERMOELECTRIC FAN (TEF)
(optional item, refer To AAL, WP 0051 00)
The base plate of the TEF gets very hot during operation. Take care in
handling the fan to avoid burns or other serious injury. If it is necessary
to remove the TEF from the lid assembly while the heater is in operation,
be sure to place the TEF on a surface that will not melt or burn.
Do not block the flow of air out of the fan by placing gloves or other
articles on the grill of the fan.
The TEF (1) helps to circulate the heat generated by the H-45 heaters (2) throughout the tent. The TEF
is self-powered and generates its own power directly from the heat radiated by the H-45 heaters. As the
TEF base plate (5) heats up, that heat is converted into electrical energy to operate the TEF. The TEF is
an optional piece of equipment and is listed in the Additional Authorization List (WP 0051 00).
To unpack the TEF from its storage container (3) unscrew and remove the storage container cover.
Grasp the TEF by the handle (4) mounted on the grill, and lift the TEF (1) out of the container.
To operate the TEF, place the base plate (5) of the TEF in the recess (6) to the left of the heater lid (7) on
the top of the heater (2). Within 5-10 minutes, the TEF will reach full operating capacity.
To repack the TEF (1), allow it to cool completely, pick it up by its top handle (4), and lower it into the
storage container (3). Place the storage container cover on the top of the storage container (3) and
screw it securely into place.
