‘ An object is to provide-novel means for deter
mining the range of automatic operation and the
maximum and minimum ?ow limits of the fuel
supplying valve for the heating apparatus.
Another object is to provide means to stop pos—
itively the movement of the control valve toward
closed position at its minimum ?ow position.
Another object is to provide means by which
the valve can have closing movement beyond its
minimum ?ow position.
The invention consists in the improved con
struction and combination of parts and their
aggroupment in operative relation to, be more
