2)POWER ? Disconnect power to your unit by either unplugging it from the wall outlet, or by the circuit breaker, depending on the setup. The 3?digit LED on the PCB should not be lit.

4)ROD ASSEMBLY –
a. Locate the black, yellow, and orange wires located in the center of the unit.
b. Remove the three Phillips head screws holding the panel in place.
c. Pull the assembly out. Caution, all pieces are separate. Be careful to not lose the sight glass.

b. Clean the air fuel ratio rod with 100 grit sandpaper, thoroughly to a bright finish.
