SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP GAS

Propane (LP-Gas)is a flammable gas which can cause fires and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and colorless.Youmaynotknowallthefollowingsafetyprecautions which can protect both you and your family from an accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point

by point with the members of your household. Someday when there may not be a minute to lose, everyone’s safety will depend on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following information, you feel you still need more information, please contact your gas supplier.

LP-GASWARNING ODOR

If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.That’s your signal to go into immediate action!

Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your phone. Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.

Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do that IMMEDIATELY.

Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.

LP-Gasis heavier than air and may settle in low areas such as basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak, keep out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until firefighters declare them to be safe.

Useyourneighbor’sphoneandcallatrainedLP-Gasserviceperson and the fire department. Even though you may not continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do notre-enterthe building, vehicle, trailer, or area.

Finally,lettheservicemanandfirefighterscheckforescaped gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly trainedLP-Gasservice people should repair the leak, then check and relight the gas appliance for you.

NO ODOR DETECTED - ODOR FADE

Somepeoplecannotsmellwell.Somepeoplecannotsmellthe odor of the chemical put into the gas. You must find out if you can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease your ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect your sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors in the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the gas odor or their minds are on something else. Thinking about smelling a gas odor can make it easier to smell.

TheodorantinLP-gasiscolorless,anditcanfadeundersomecircumstances.Forexample,ifthereisanundergroundleak,the movementofthegasthroughsoilcanfiltertheodorant.Odorants inLP-Gasalsoaresubjecttooxidation.Thisfadingcanoccurif

there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.

The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into walls, masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will take some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.

LP-Gasmay stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest gas odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately go into action as instructed earlier.

SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER

LearntorecognizetheodorofLP-gas.Your local LP-Gas Dealer can give you a “Scratch and Sniff” pamphlet. Use it to find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LP-Gas Dealer.

If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gassystem. If you are qualified, consciously think about the odor ofLP-Gasprior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service or making adjustments.

Sometimes a basement or a closed-uphouse has a musty smell that can cover up theLP-Gasodor. Do not try to light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area where the conditions are such that you may not detect the odor if there has been a leak ofLP-Gas.

Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks, or reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed

to set too long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which havebeenoutofserviceforatimemaydevelopinternalrust which will cause odor fade. If such conditions are suspected to exist, a periodic sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you have any question about the gas odor, call your LP-gas dealer.Aperiodic sniff test of the LP-gas is a good safety measure under any condition.

If,atanytime,youdonotsmelltheLP-Gasodorantandyouthinkyoushould,assumeyouhavealeak.Thentakethesame immediateactionrecommendedabovefortheoccasionwhen you do detect the odorizedLP-Gas.

If you experience a complete “gas out,” (the container is undernovaporpressure),turnthetankvalveoffimmediately. If the container valve is left on, the container may draw in some air through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this occurs,somenewinternalrustingcouldoccur.Ifthevalveis left open, then treat the container as a new tank.Always be sure your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off at the container before it goes completely empty or having it refilled before it is completely empty.

Installing a New Main Gas Cock

Each appliance should have its own manual gas cock.

In the state of Massachusetts the gas cock must be a T handle type.

A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of the unit. Where none exists, or where its size or location is not adequate, contact your local authorized installer for installation or relocation.

Compoundsusedonthreadedjointsofgaspipingshallberesistant to the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be checked for leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap solution watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if unexposed, a pressure test should be made.

Neveruse an exposed flame to check forleaks.Appliance must be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe capped or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with appliance connected; control valve will sustain damage!

NOTE: The millivolt gas controls are equipped with a captured screwtypepressuretestpoint,thereforeitisnotnecessarytoprovide a 1/8" test point up stream of the control.

Converting flue take-offto rear venting

When switching out the flue and inlet vent collars to run horizontally off the rear vent, the following steps must be taken.

1.Remove the inlet vent collar (8 screws) and flue collar (4 screws) from the top of the fireplace, and set to the side.

2.Remove the inlet cover plate and flue cover plate located on the back of the fireplace. These will be used to close the top flue and inlet openings.

3.Insert the insulation retainer bracket and insulation into the top flue pipe before reinstalling the flue cover plate over the

top flue with 4 screws.
