Instruction manual and safety instructions
Safety instructions:
- Always keep the room where the fireplace is operated ventilated. While burning the fire
uses oxygen out of the air.
- When ventilated, the minimum room size per opreated fireplace 65174 and / or 65185 must
not be under 44m³ / 1550 cuf (equalling 20 m² / 215 sqf room size with a ceiling of 2,20 m
/ 7,2 ft). For each operated fireplace 65184 the minimum room size should be at least 80 m³
/ 2825 cuf (equalling 36,4 m² / 392 sqf with 2,20 m / 7,2 ft ceiling).
- When burning bio-ethanol water-vapour and carbon dioxide are produced.

jug (K) and the funnel (J). (maximum filling for item 65174 and 65185: 0,9 ltr / 30 fl oz, for
65184: 1,4 ltr / 47,3 fl oz).
- Spilled alcohol must be removed with an absorbant tissue and cleaned with water to prevent
ignition outside the burner reservoir.
- CAUTION: Spilled alcohol may lead to matt stains on parquet flooring.
- ATTENTION: The fuel should be stored at room temperature to facilitate its ignition.
- CAUTION: Fuel must be kept in safe distance (min. 1 m / 40 inch) to the fireplace.
- Do not place fuel in front of the fireplace.
- Dip the prongs of the controller tool (I) into the filled reservoir and light the moistened prongs
with a sticklighter. Keep a safe distance to the reservoir.
- Transfer the burning controller tool (I) to the ethanol reservoir. Use caution and keep the length
of the tool as a safety distance.
- In case the flame does not ignite, please repeat the ignition process until the flame burns steadily.
- Fuel will burn low at first. Please allow 15 minutes to reach the optimum temperature and flame
height.The flame then can be adjusted by opening or closing the sliding cover on the reservoir with
the controller tool (see illustration 10).
- Adjust the flame to prevent it from hitting the upper end of the burning chamber (10-15 cm /

controller tool to fully close the opening of the reservoir and wait until the flame is extinguished.
Wait approximately 30 minutes until the burner has reached room temperature. Only then dispose

- To seal the surface we recommend our blomus stainless steel maintenance spray. This creates
a dirt-deflecting protective film and works preventing against scaling.

scrubbing sponges either. The surface can be scratched by these. The manufacturer can not be
held responsible for any damages resulting out of false use and / or cleaning of the product.
