Never use an LP cylinder with a damaged body, valve, collar, or footring.

Dented or rusted LP cylinders may be hazardous and should be checked by your LP gas supplier.

The cylinder supply system must be arranged for vapor withdrawl.

The cylinder used must include a collar to protect the cylinder valve.

When heater is not in use, turn LP cylinder OFF.

Always perform a leak test on gas connections whenever a cylinder is connected. Never use a flame to test for leaks. Do not smoke while performing a leak test.

Caution: It is essential to keep the heater’s valve compartment, burners, and circulating air passages clean.

Spiders and insects can create a dangerous condition that may damage heater or make it unsafe. Keep burner area clean of all spiders, webs, or insects.

Inspect heater before each use.

Have heater inspected annually and repairs should be made by a qualified service person.

Check heater immediately if any of the following conditions exist:

The smell of gas in conjunction with extreme yellow tipping of burner flames.

Heater does not reach proper temperature.

Note: At temperatures less than 40ºF, heat output will be reduced.

Heater’s glow is excessively uneven

Burner makes popping noises during use.

Note: A slight pop is normal when burner is extinguished.

Carbon deposits may create a fire hazard. Keep dome and emitter clean at all times.

Do not clean heater with combustible or corrosive cleaners. Use warm, soapy water.

Do not paint engine, engine access panel or dome.
