SPACE HEATER ARCTIC (SHA)
OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
Fire or Explosion
Interchanging fuel flow control valves between various models of space heaters (e.g. Space
Heater Arctic [SHA] and and H-45 Large Radiant Space Heater) is not allowed! Operating a
heater with an incorrect valve could result in fire or explosion!
Do not use unauthorized fuels! Use of unauthorized fuel may result in fire/explosion!
Shelter exhaust opening closure flap must be rolled and tied securely. Shelter may catch fire
if hot stack assembly contacts the flap.
Poorly fitted stack sections may allow hot stack to fall on shelter and start a fire, or deadly
carbon monoxide to leak into shelter. Ensure sections seat together fully.
Heat or sparks from stack assembly could ignite fuel supply. Set up fuel supply on a clear
site seven feet (approx. 2.5 meters) from shelter and away from flame sources.
If fuel flow control valve assembly is improperly positioned or if bracket is bent, a fuel overflow
could occur inside burner shell assembly and cause a fire or explosion.
For safe operation, be sure to allow at least one (2) feet (61 cm) of space between the heater
and the shelter wall. Never relight a extinguished flame while the heater is hot. Be sure to
allow the heater to cool completely before attempting to relight. Do not attempt to replenish
the fuel supply while the heater is in operation. Be certain that there is no open flame in the
vicinity of liquid fuel.
