Using the 70,000 BTU Kerosene Forced Air Portable Heater

Cold weather can't keep you from getting work done when you have a kerosene portable heater to warm up your work area. This video will show the proper startup, operation, and shut down procedure for this Mi‑T‑M 70,000 BTU portable heater.

  • While outside or in a well ventilated area, on a level surface, fill the tank with fresh, #1 kerosene, or # 1 or #2 diesel fuel, until the gauge points to "F".
  • Replace the cap securely, and move the heater into your workspace. Ventilation is very important, and fresh air must be provided in your workspace.
  • Plug the power cord into a 3-prong, grounded extension cord, which is plugged into either a GFCI grounded outlet or a generator.
  • Turn the thermostat control knob to the desired temperature setting. The setting range is from 40° F to 110° F.
  • Press the Power switch to the "ON" position, and the heater will start.
  • If the thermostat is set too low, the heater will not fire. Simply turn up the thermostat until the heater fires.

Never leave the heater unattended while it is burning, or connected to a power source.

When you are finished using the heater, or need to leave the area, press the Power switch to OFF, and unplug the power cord.

If you need to restart the Mi‑T‑M heater, plug the power cord back in, and wait at least 10 seconds before pressing the Power Switch to ON again.
