DANGER
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: 18 inches.
• Provide adequate clearances around air openings into the combustion
chamber.
WARNING
Failure to comply with the precautions and instructions provided with this
heater can result in death, serious bodily injury and property loss or
damage from hazards of fire, explosion, burn and/or asphyxiation.
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.
Only persons who can understand and follow the instructions should use
or service this heater.

General Safety Information cont.
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.
WARNING
• BURN HAZARD
• Never leave catalytic heater unattended when hot or in use.
• Keep out of reach of children.
CAUTION
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.

heater propane connections for damage before attaching.
• During set up, check all connections and fittings for leaks using soapy water.

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.

1. This is a catalytic heater. Burning occurs within the pad at a lower
temperature than a normal flame due to evenly distributed platinum. But, heat
guard and burner rim still get hot enough to burn you. Be careful.
2. During the seasons when your catalytic heater is not needed in your
vehicle, you should remove the propane cylinder and heater from your vehicle
and store properly elsewhere until cold weather returns.
3. Do not use heater for cooking or warming items, this can destroy
combustion and catalyst. This heater has a low burn temperature (no flame)
but it can still burn clothing, sleeping bags, etc., that might fall on the burner
surface.
4. To avoid damage to the catalyst, do not allow head pad to come in contact
with or around silicone based hand creams, paints, etc.
5. Do not touch the gray ceramic fiber head pad or poke a hole into it.
6. Do not attempt cleaning the head assembly.
7. For repair service call one of the numbers listed below for location of your
nearest Coleman Service Center. If heater must be mailed to Service Center,
attach your name, address, and a description of problem to product and and
send to Service Center either by UPS or Parcel Post insured with shipping
and insurance prepaid. Do not mail propane cylinders. If necessary to write
the Service Center or factory, refer to your heater by model number.
8. If not completely satisfied with performance of this product, please call one
of the numbers listed below.
9. As with any new heating appliance, a small amount of smoke may be seen
during the initial operation as a result of residual manufacturing oils being
heated. This is normal. Coleman suggests the owner operate the heater for
30 minutes when first purchased. This will also familiarize the owner with all
the features of the heater.
