General Information: This series is design certified in accordance with American National Standard/CSA Standard Z21.86 and CSA 2.32 by the Canadian Standards Association, as a Vented Room Heater and must be installed according to these instructions. Any alteration of the original design, installed other than as shown in the manufacturer’s instructions or use with a type of gas not shown on the rating plate is the responsibility of the person and company making the change.
Important: All correspondence should refer to complete Model Number, Serial Number and type of gas. Notice: During initial firing of this unit, its paint may bake out and smoke may occur. To prevent triggering of smoke alarms, ventilate the room in which the unit is installed.
Installation on Rugs and Tile: If this heater is to be installed directly on carpeting, tile, or a combustible material, other than wood flooring, the appliance may require that it be installed on a metal or wood panel extending the full width and depth of the appliance. This protection is primarily for rugs that may be extremely thick and for lightcolored tile that can discolor. Please consult your owner’s manual for applicability and
specifics of installation.
