Operating Personnel Heater
l Do not place flammable materials or explosives on or near
personnel heater. To prevent injury to personnel and damage
to equipment, do not block or restrict heater vent.
l Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, deadly, poisonous
gas that, when breathed, deprives the body of oxygen and
causes suffocation. Breathing carbon monoxide produces
headache, dizziness, loss of muscle control, drowsiness,
and coma. Permanent brain damage or death can result from
exposure. Do not operate heater or engine of vehicle in an
enclosed area unless area is adequately ventilated.
Turn vehicle MASTER switch to ON.
Move HEAT SELECT switch (1) to LOW.
If heater does not start within 4 minutes, move HEAT SELECT switch to OFF for 15
minutes. The start attempt may be continued for an additional 4 minutes.
If heater does not start after a second try, again move HEAT SELECT switch to OFF and
notify Unit maintenance.
