Safety First!

Read and become familiar with this entire manual, especially the following precautions. If you are unsure of anything in these instructions or the operation of your heater, STOP and contact 1-800-762-1142for assistance.

Caution: This appliance is for outdoor use only (outside any enclosure). Always make sure there is fresh air ventilation.

Always maintain at least 36” clearance from combustible materials.

Always place heater on a hard and level surface.

Do not use if the wind velocity is greater than 10 miles per hour.

Heater operates at reduced efficiency below 40ºF (5ºC).

Keep sprinklers and other water sources away from burner and controls.

When using the gas extension hose always locate the hose out of pathways where people may trip over it or in areas where the hose may be subject to accidental damage.

Always use extreme caution when near heater. Alert both children and adults to the hazards of high temperatures, especially to avoid burns or clothing catching fire.

Young children and pets should be carefully supervised when they are in the area of heater.

Do not hang clothing or other flammable materials either on or near heater.

Any guard or other protective device removed for servicing the heater must be replaced prior to operating the heater.

Certain materials or items, when stored under heater, will be subjected to radiant heat and could be seriously damaged.

Caution:

Before you attempt to use a propane cylinder, understand all cylinder and propane related precautions in Section #1 – “Safety First.”

Step 4 – Gas Hook-up

Note: For best results, use heater with a 20 lb. cylinder.

The pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with the appliance must be used and replacements must be those specified by the manufacturer.

Caution:

Your Endless Summer Portable Heater has been checked at all factory connections for leaks. Recheck all connections, as movement in shipping can loosen connections. Check for leaks even if your unit was assembled for you at the store.

To connect 20 lb. Cylinder

Slip end of flexible gas line with brass fitting through center hole of Base and up to threaded portion of regulator.

Line up threads on fitting with those on regulator and rotate clockwise until snug. HAND TIGHTEN ONLY. DO NOT USE ANY HAND TOOLS TO MAKE THIS CONNECTION. BE CAREFUL NOT TO CROSS THREADS WHEN SCREWING IN FITTING.

Note: if heater uses center clamp, hose can be routed through opening in base and table.

Set heater on base, making sure that flexible gas line is routed through small slot in base.

Attach gas line to cylinder by turning black plastic knob counter clockwise into cylinder valve until tight.

Note: Be careful not to kink flexible gas line.

When using the gas extension hose always locate the hose out of pathways where people may trip over it or in areas where the hose may be subject to accidental damage.

To connect 14.1 oz or 16.4 oz cylinder

Note: Some1-lbcylinders may form frost when near empty.

Line up threads on canister with those on regulator, insert and rotate canister clockwise until they fit snugly together. HAND TIGHTEN ONLY. BE CAREFUL NOT TO CROSS THREADS WHEN SCREWING IN CANISTER.

Step 5 – Check for Leaks

To check for leaks:

Make 1-2oz. of leak solution by mixing one part liquid dishwashing soap and 3 parts water.

Spoon several drops (or use squirt bottle) of the solution onto the regulator/canister connections.

Inspect the connections and look for bubbles

If NO bubbles appear, the connection is safe.

If bubbles appear, there is a leak:

Loosen and re-tightenthis connection.

Re-checkfor a leak.

If you continue to see bubbles after several attempts, disconnect propane source and contact 1-800-762-1142.

Do not return to place of purchase.

Step 6 – Install Access Panel

• Rotate door up to closed position and tighten thumb screw

Step 7 – Securing the Tank

Mount your 20 lb. cylinder to a sturdy object such as a table or post within 3 to 4 feet of your heater when in use, this will prevent movement or tipping of the cylinder during operation.

The clamp on the cylinder ring will attach to any round pole from 1” to 2” in diameter, or a square post from 1” to 2” square. It will also adapt to various other shapes up to 2” wide.

Determine where to locate your 20 lb. cylinder. Be sure that it is within 2” what you are mounting it to.

Place the bracket halves around the object and insert the 2” bolts through the open holes in one bracket and into the matching threaded holes in the second bracket. Position bracket within 6” of the middle of the cylinder. Finger tighten bolts.

Slide the 20 lb. cylinder into the curved portion of the bracket, making sure strapping ends are not between cylinder and bracket. Enclose cylinder in strap and securely tighten strap in buckle.

Using a 7/16” wrench, tighten the 2” bolts until they are secure. DO

NOT OVER TIGHTEN.

In some cases you may wish to secure your cylinder to a larger object or a wall. It is possible to mount the bracket attached to the straps to these surfaces by drilling matching holes and using screws and nuts or lag screws (not provided) to secure your cylinder.

Note: Once you have read “safety first” and successfully completed

Steps 1 – 7, you are ready to begin operating your heater.
