Notes
General Safety Information cont.
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 outdoor stove is lighted,
near flame, pilot lights, other ignition sources or while outdoor stove is
hot to touch.
• During operation, this product can be a source of ignition. Never use
the stove 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: one foot from the sides & four feet from the top.
• Provide adequate clearances around air openings into the combustion
chamber.
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 withdraw.
• Propane gas should be stored and used in compliance with local
ordinances and codes or with ANSI/NFPA 58. Turn off propane when
not in use.
CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65:
WARNING: Propane and byproducts of combustion of propane contain
chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects,
or other reproductive harm.
WARNING
WARNING
We cannot foresee every use which may be made of this cooking stove.
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 stove. Do not attempt to
adjust.
DANGER
• BURN HAZARD
• Never leave the outdoor stove unattended when hot or in use.
• Keep out of reach of children.
CAUTION
• SERVICE SAFETY
• Keep all connections and fittings clean. Make sure propane tank valve outlet is clean.
• During set up, check all connections and fittings for leaks using soapy
water. Never use a flame.
• Use as a cooking appliance only. Never alter in any way or use with any
device or part not expressly approved by Coleman.
• CARBON MONOXIDE HAZARD
• This stove is a combustion appliance. All combustion appliances produce carbon monoxide (CO) during the combustion process. This
product is designed to produce extremely minute, non-hazardous
amounts of CO if used and maintained in accordance with all warnings and instructions. Do not block air flow into or out of the cook
stove.
• Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning produces flu-like symptoms,
watery eyes, headaches, dizziness, fatigue and possibly death.
You can’t see it and you can’t smell it. It’s an invisible killer. If these
symptoms are present during operation of this product get fresh air
immediately!
• For outdoor use only.
• Never use inside house, or other unventilated or enclosed areas.
This cook stove consumes air (oxygen). Do not use in unventilated or enclosed areas to avoid endangering your life.

Cooking Tips
CAUTION
• Do not place a pot or a pan on the nonstick grill or griddle surfaces.
Damage will occur and void the warranty.
• EXPLOSION - FIRE HAZARD
• Never store propane near high heat, open flames, pilot lights, direct
sunlight, other ignition sources or where temperatures exceed 120°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 outdoor stove is lighted,
near flame, pilot lights, other ignition sources or while outdoor stove is
hot to touch.
• This stove is red hot during use and can ignite flammables too close to
the burner. Keep flammables at least 12" from sides and 48" from top.
Keep gasoline and other flammable liquids and vapors well away from
outdoor stove.
• Disconnect propane tank from stove if the stove is to be stored
indoors.
■ Clean cooking surfaces before
first use.
■ The grill and griddle have
a nonstick coating. Use only nonmetallic utensils to prolong the life
of the nonstick coating.
■ Use the flat griddle surface for
eggs, thin pieces of meat, fish or
vegetables.
■ The grill surface is ideal
for steaks, hamburgers or chicken.
■ Coleman recommends fresh
water in the water pan when in
use. Fresh water in the water pan
will help food taste better and keep
it from drying out.
■ Use the optional chromed
stove grate (sold separately) anytime you wish to place a pot on
the stove.
■ The lid is removable. Tilt
forward and lift.

Maintenance
WARNING
• BURN HAZARD
• Do not touch or attempt any maintenance on stove for at least one hour
after use.
• Make sure all controls are off and propane tank has been removed
before doing maintenance.
To enjoy years of outstanding performance from your stove, perform the
following maintenance activities on a regular basis:
• Keep exterior surfaces clean.
• Use warm soapy water for cleaning. Never use flammable or corrosive
cleaning agents.
•Airflow must be unobstructed. Keep controls, burner and circulating air
passages clean. Signs of possible blockage include:
-Gas odor
-Stove makes popping noises
-Smoky flame.
• Spiders and insects can nest in burner orifices. This condition can
damage the stove and render it unsafe for use. Clean burner holes by
using a heavy-duty pipe cleaner. Compressed air may help clear away
small particles.
• Carbon deposits may create a fire hazard. Clean burner with warm
soapy water if any carbon deposits develop.
• If the stove has been left uncovered and is wet from rain, snow, yard
sprinklers, etc., allow to dry (at least 30 minutes prior to use).
• NOTE: In a salt-air environment (such as near an ocean), corrosion
occurs more quickly than normal. Frequently check for corroded areas
and repair them promptly.
