MODERN BURNER UNIT (MBU)
OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
MBU OPERATING PROCEDURES
During operation, the MBU produces carbon monoxide (CO), a colorless, odorless, and
tasteless gas. Prolonged inhalation of CO will cause symptoms of drowsiness, headache,
dizziness, and loss of muscular control. This can be avoided by ensuring that operating space
is well ventilated.
Start-up: To start a burner that has been properly prepared, proceed as follows:
Push the POWER Button. The indicator lights will flash on and off for 3 seconds, and the hour meter
background light will illuminate. The hour meter will display a series of characters before displaying the
actual number of hours the MBU has been in operation.
Turn Burner Control to HIGH (START) position.
Fault Detection Override
Holding down the START button will override the fault detection circuitry, preventing shut
down for 2 minutes. This allows purging the fuel lines on new units, and units that have been
completely drained. It also facilitates troubleshooting.
Press START button. The WARM UP indicator will light for approximately 2 minutes.
When RUN indicator lights, MBU is ready for operation.
Burner Control Temperature Adjustment . The MBU Burner Control has a LOW and a HIGH setting
indicator and can be set anywhere in between. The minimum and maximum settings correspond to a
heat output of from approximately 18,000 BTUH to 60,000 BTUH respectively.
Each cooking situation is different and the correct burner control setting for that situation must be
determined by trial. The correct settings will become apparent with experience and ongoing use of the
