information.
CAUTION
All cleaning and maintenance
should only be done when the
appliance is cool and with the fuel
supply turned off at the LP cylinder.
DO NOT clean any part in a selfcleaning oven. The extreme heat
will damage the finish.
Cleaning The Burner
NOTE: Spiders and small insects can
spin webs and build nests inside the
burner. This especially occurs in late
summer and fall before frost when
spiders are most active. These nests
can obstruct gas flow and cause a
fire in and around the burner and
orifice. Such a fire can cause operator
injury and serious damage to the
appliance. To help prevent a blockage
and ensure full heat output, clean
and inspect burner tube often (once
or twice a month). NOTE: Water or
air pressure will not normally clear a

times a year or more depending on
usage). Cleaning should be done where
detergents won’t harm patio, lawn,
or the like. Keep appliance area clear
and free from combustible materials,
gasoline and other flammable vapors
and liquids. Keep the ventilation
opening(s) of the cylinder enclosure
free and clear from debris.
Suggested Cleaning Materials
• Mild dish washing liquid detergent
• Wire brush
• Nylon cleaning pad
• Hot water
• Paper clip
• Soft brass bristled brush
Component Cleaning:
• Burner should be wiped clean. Hot
soapy water and a soft bristle brush
can be used to clean the burner
surfaces. Clean clogged gas port holes
with an opened paper clip. Replace
corroded or damaged burners that
would emit excess gas.
• COOKING SURFACES, POTS AND
PANS: Clean the cooking surface with
soapy water and a nylon cleaning
pad.
• After appliance has cooled, wipe areas
where paint and finish have burned
off to minimize rusting.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Correct care and maintenance will keep
your appliance operating smoothly.
Clean regularly as determined by the
amount of use. NOTE: Clean the
entire appliance each year and tighten
all hardware on a regular basis (1-2
