DANGER

EXPLOSION - FIRE HAZARD

Never store propane near high heat, open flames,

pilot lights, direct sunlight, other ignition sources or where temperatures exceed 120 degrees F (49°C).

Propane is heavier than air and can accumulate in low places. If you smell gas, leave the area immediately.

Never install or remove propane tank while catalytic heater is lighted, near flame, pilot lights, other ignition sources or while catalytic heater is hot to touch.

During operation, this product can be a source of ignition. Never use the catalytic heater in spaces that contain or may contain volatile or airborne combustibles, or products such as gasoline, solvents, paint thinner, dust particles or unknown chemicals. Minimum clearances from combustible materials: 24 inches.

Provide adequate clearances around air openings into the combustion chamber.

WARNING

We cannot foresee every use which may be made of our products.

Check with your local fire safety authority if you have questions about use.

Other standards govern the use of fuel gases and heat producing products for specific uses.Your local authorities can advise you about these.

Never refill disposable cylinders.

Use the preset regulator that came with the catalytic heater. Do not attempt to adjust.

WARNING

This product is fueled by propane gas. Propane gas is invisible, odorless, and flammable. An odorant is normally added to help detect leaks and can be described as a “rotten egg” smell. The odorant can fade over time so leaking gas is not always detectable by smell alone.

Propane gas is heavier than air and leaking propane will sink to the lowest level possible. It can ignite by ignition sources including matches, lighters, sparks or open flames of any kind many feet away from the original leak. Use only propane gas set up for vapor withdrawal.

Propane gas should be stored or used in compliance with local ordinances and codes or with ANSI/NFPA 58. Turn off propane when not in use.

CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65:

WARNING: This fuel, and byproducts of combustion of this fuel, contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.

WARNING

BURN HAZARD

Never leave catalytic heater unattended when hot or in use.

Keep out of reach of children.

During set up, check all connections and fittings for leaks using soapy water. Never use a flame. Bubbles indicate a leak. Check that the connection is not cross-threaded and that it is tight. Perform another leak check. If there is still a leak, remove the cylinder and contact Coleman for service or repairs.
