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.

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.
