SECTION 1—IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
DO NOT allow oil from your hands or other sources to come
into contact with the compressor coupling or bottle fittings.
These substances may become flammable in the presence of
oxygen and cause injury. Avoid touching the bottle fitting
whenever possible. Example of items to avoid are hand
creams or lotions, cooking oils, suntan oils or sunblocks and
similar oily products. If you use these types of products
Invacare suggests you wash your hands prior to using the
HomeFill unit. If the bottle fitting should come in contact with
such substances it should be cleaned off with a damp cloth
prior to connecting it to the compressor.
NEVER oil or lubricate the compressor coupler or bottle
fittings. NEVER use any penetrating oil or lubricant such as
WD-40 or 3 in One. If connection difficulty is experienced
verify that the bottle fitting is being inserted straight down
into the compressor coupler. If continued difficulty is
experienced contact your supplier for assistance.
Before moving or repositioning either the compressor or
concentrator, ALWAYS push the power switch to the Off (O)
position, disconnect the AC power cord and the interconnect
hose between the compressor and concentrator. Failure to do
so may result in damage to the unit or personal injury.
