SPECIFIC SAFETY WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS
1.
WARNING! This unit must only be used with an approved, UL listed LP
regulator. NEVER attempt to use this item without a regulator.
2.
Read these instructions carefully before setting up and using the Propane
Stove. Do not allow anyone who has not read the instructions to assemble,
light, or operate the Stove.
3.
Improper assembly, installation, adjustment, alteration, service, use, or
maintenance can cause property damage, PERSONAL INJURY, or DEATH.
4.
Service and repair should be done only by a qualified service technician. The
Propane Stove should be inspected before each use and at least annually by
a qualified service technician. More frequent cleaning may be required as
necessary. It is imperative that the Burner(s), Temperature Control Knob(s),
and circulating fuel/air passageways of the Propane Stove should be kept
clean.
5.
This Propane Stove must be used only with HD-5 propane gas. The propane
tank should hold no more than 20 pounds of LP gas. Do not use bulk tanks of
larger capacity. Do not use any other fuel. The Stove must be used only with
a vapor withdrawal LP propane tank equipped with a POL valve. The tank
must be constructed and marked in such a way as to comply with the
specifications for LP gas tanks by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

6.
The use of the Propane Stove must be in conformity with local codes or, in the
absence of local codes, with the standard for storage and Handling of Liquefied
Petroleum Gases, ANSI/NFPA 58. For Canada, the use must be in
accordance with the current CAN/CGA B149.2 installation codes.
CARBON MONOXIDE INHALATION HAZARD
1.
The Propane Stove is an unvented LP Gas-fired stove. It must never
be used inside vehicles, campers, in a house, or any other sealed
structure. Carbon monoxide is produced during operation and is
DEADLY in a closed environment. Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning
resemble the flu, with headaches, dizziness, or nausea. If you have these signs,
the Propane Stove may not be working properly or is improperly vented. Get fresh
air immediately.
2.
If you smell gas: Shut off gas to the appliance. Extinguish any open flame.
Never light a match. Never turn on an electrical switch. Evacuate the area at
once. Call for professional help.
RISK OF FIRE AND/OR EXPLOSION
1.
Do not store extra propane tanks in the vicinity of the Propane Stove
or any other appliance.
2.
If gas is smelled during operation, immediately close the valve on the
propane tank. Propane gas is odorless. An odor-making agent is added
to propane/LP gas to enable you to smell the gas if it may be leaking.
3.
If the Propane Stove shuts off during operation, close the valve on the
propane tank. Check the amount of gas in the tank and wait 5 minutes for
the gas to clear before restarting. If it continues to shut off during operation,
have it serviced by a qualified technician.
4.
Never place the Propane Stove within 15 feet of flammable objects such as
wood, trees, overhangs, and umbrellas. This stove also requires a clearance
of at least 3 feet from nonflammable materials to allow proper combustion.

5.
Keep solid combustibles such as paper or cardboard a safe distance away
from the Propane Stove. Never use the Stove in spaces which do or may
contain volatile or airborne combustibles, or products such as gasoline,
solvents, paint thinner, dust particles or unknown chemicals.
6.
Always operate the Propane Stove with the propane tank in its vertical
upright position, on a noncombustible surface. While in operation, do not tilt
or lean the propane tank on its side. Never turn the tank upside down, not even
when it seems empty, as this may cause clogging of valves and components
which could lead to dangerous flare-ups or fire.
7.
This Propane Stove must be positioned and operated so that it is not
directly exposed to water spray, rain, or dripping water.
8.
Make sure to remove ALL packing materials before using the Propane
Stove.
RISK OF BURNS -- STOVE GETS VERY HOT DURING USE.
1.
Do not attempt to move the Propane Stove while it is in operation.
Turn it off and wait one-half hour until it cools down before moving.
2.
Do not touch the Grill(s) or Burner(s) while the Propane Stove is lit. Before
servicing, wait one-half hour for the Propane Stove to cool down.
3.
Children and adults should be alerted to the hazards of high surface
temperatures and should stay away to avoid burns or clothing ignition.
4.
Young children should be carefully supervised when they are in the area of
the Propane Stove.
5.
Clothing or other flammable materials should not be hung from the Propane
Stove, or placed on or near the Stove.
6.

3.
Turn the Propane Stove upside down, and attach a Rubber Foot (7) to each
corner of the unit. (See Assy. Diagram.)
4.
To attach the three Temperature Control Knobs (4), loosen the countersunk Screw
in the Knob. Insert the Knob onto the Burner Control Shaft by aligning the flat
edges of the Knob and Shaft. Then, firmly tighten the Screw.
(See Figure A.)
5.

NOTE: The propane tank used must be constructed and marked in accordance
with the specifications for LP propane cylinders by the U.S. Department of
Transportation. (See Figure A.)
8.
To connect to the propane tank, first make sure the Temperature Control Knobs (4)
of the Propane Stove are in their “OFF” positions. Then, screw the Gas Valve of
the LP Regulator & Hose Kit firmly onto the propane tank’s discharge pipe.
(See Figure A.)
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1.
CAUTION! Always use clean equipment and utensils. Before using the
Propane Stove, and after using this product, clean all parts in warm, clean water
and antibacterial soap. Then, thoroughly dry.
2.
NOTE: Higher altitudes may affect the cooking efficiency of the Propane Stove.
3.
Make sure the Propane Stove and propane tank are located on a clean, dry, level
surface capable of supporting the weight of the Stove and propane tank. Keep
the Propane Stove and propane tank away from other flammable objects.
WARNING! NOT FOR INDOOR USE.
4.
Check to make sure the Temperature Control Knobs (4) on the Propane Stove are
in their “OFF” positions. Open the gas valve on the propane tank and check and
smell for gas leaks. Perform a bubble test by applying warm soapy water over
every joint, regulator, fitting, and anywhere else there may be a possible leak.
Observe carefully to see if bubbles expand, indicating a leak. A large leak can
blow the soapy solution away instead of forming bubbles. If leaks are found, do
not use the Propane Stove until the leaks have been stopped. After testing, make
sure to close the gas valve on the propane tank.
5.
To use the Burners (2 and 2A), open the gas valve on the propane tank. Apply a
long, lighted match or a fireplace lighter to the Burner which is to be lit. Keep
fingers and hands well away from the Burners. Next, push the relevant Temperature Control Knob (4) and turn it to its “ON” position. Once the Burner is lit,
safely dispose the match and adjust the Temperature Control Knob to the desired
setting. The Grill Chamber (3) will be hot while the Middle Burner is in use.
(See Assy. Diagram.)
6.
To use the Grill Chamber (3), open the Grill Door (8) and remove the Tray with
Rack (9). Place the food on the Rack and push the Tray into the Grill Chamber.
Close the Grill Door securely. Then, light the center Burner (2A) to grill the food.
When the food is cooked, turn off the gas and use the Grill Handle (10) to remove
the Tray with Rack. The center burner will have an open flame while the Grill
Chamber (3) is in use; take appropriate precautions. (See Assy. Diagram.)

7.
While cooking, avoid spills as this may result in extinguishing the flame and
clogging the Burner holes.
8.
Always turn the Temperature Control Knobs (4) to their “OFF” positions before
removing a pan from the Burners (2 and 2A) or Grill Chamber (3).
(See Assy. Diagram.)
9.
When finished using the Propane Stove, turn the Temperature Control Knobs (4)
to their “OFF” positions. Then, close the gas valve on the propane tank.
(See Assy. Diagram.)
10.
The propane tank must be stored outside. If the Propane Stove is to be stored
inside a building, the propane tank should be turned off, removed from the
Stove, and left outside. Propane tanks must be stored outdoors in a
well-ventilated area out of reach of children. Disconnected propane tanks must
have threaded valve plugs (not included) tightly installed, and must not be stored
in a building, garage, or any other enclosed area.
11.
WARNING! Do not attempt to move the Propane Stove while it
is on or while it is hot. Do not touch any area of the Burners (2),
Tray with Rack (9), or top of the Stove’s Body (1). Serious burns
will occur. Turn the Propane Stove off and wait one-half hour until it
cools down before moving. (See Assy. Diagram.)
