position as shown.
OFF
Step 3. Connect the regulator to the gas cylinder
by turning the coupling nut anti-clockwise
to tighten to a full stop (left hand thread).
The seal has now engaged. An additional
one half to three quarter turn is required to
complete the connection. If your regulator
has a plastic type hand wheel DO NOT
use tools. Tighten by hand only. 
Use a spanner on brass hexagon type
nuts, DO NOT over tighten.
Step 4. Make a soapy solution by mixing one part
liquid detergent (such as dish-washing
liquid) and four parts water.
Step 5. Open the gas valve on the cylinder by
turning it anticlockwise.
Step 6. Apply the soapy solution to all visible gas
connections in the vicinity of the cylinder
and regulator. Gas leaks will show as
small bubbles gradually increasing in size
in the soapy solution.
Step 7. If there is a gas leak from the connection
between the regulator and gas cylinder,
close the gas valve on the cylinder by
turning it clockwise. Disconnect the
regulator and hose assembly from the
cylinder by turning the coupling nut
clockwise to disengage. Inspect for debris
inside the cylinder fitting and the fitting at
the end of the regulator. Remove debris
and reconnect as per step 3). Retest for
gas leaks.
ON
OFF
Step 8. Removal of the gas hose, regulator and
cylinder is the reverse of the connection
procedure.
CAUTION

Burner Assembly
The major component of the Rinnai
Luminaire Outdoor Gas Fire is the
burner assembly. This consists of a
tube burner mounted in an open tray
filled with pumice and stones/pebbles.
A SIT® pilot burner is positioned along
the tube burner to ensure positive
lighting and is covered by a perforated
guard to prevent the pumice from
blocking the burner.
The gas control, pressure regulator and spark igniton system is positioned at the right end of the tube
burner.
The complete assembly is housed within a stainless steel body incorporating a removable cover.
The cover is placed over the burner for protection from wind and rain when the unit is not in use.
DO NOT attempt to light the appliance when the cover is in place.
DO NOT place the cover on the appliance when the flame is on.
Body Assembly - (Open One Sided Cabinet)
The outer body assembly is optional and must be used
if installing into a non combustible enclosure. It consists
of a 5-sided construction with an open front (pictured) or
open front and back. If a body assembly is ordered, this
comes assembled complete with burner assembly
inside.
Enclosure must be constructed of masonry or noncombustible material.
Body Assembly with Glass Bi-Fold Doors
The body assembly has optional tempered glass double
bi-fold doors to reduce the affect of wind and rain on the
burner. The appliance can operate with the doors open
or closed.
The unit is able to operate with the bi-fold doors closed.
Air being induced into the combustion chamber through
the lower half of the open front and expelled out the top
or through the top louvres on the glass door.
Closing the bi fold doors does not affect the operation of
the appliance. Adequate ventilation is supplied via the
louvres and gaps at the side and top of the unit.

KITSET INSTALLATION - NON COMBUSTIBLE FRAME
Steel framing options are available for the one sided and two sided see-through units. For ease of
installation Rinnai provide the durable steel frame as a kitset.
Prepare framing dimensions
Construct framing to specific installation dimensions shown.
To enhance the durability of the framing we suggest the frame is mounted on a paved slab 250 mm
(above unpaved ground) and 150 mm (above paved ground). We also recommend having a 25 mm
air gap to stop LPG from pooling and to allow moisture to drain easily from the enclosure.
