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. 3 To Set Up Step 1 Step 5 ■ Remove components from package: (1) Stand (2) Side tables (1) Stove (1) Lid (1) Waterpan (1) Regulator (1) Grill (1) Griddle ■ Insert side tables. ■ See replacement parts list for identification.

(If the stove is wet the igniter may not spark.) ■ Push the burner valve knobs inward and close burner valves firmly. Tear Down/Clean ■ The unit may be match lighted if there is no ignition. Hold lit match next to BURNER and open BURNER VALVE slowly. ■ Left knob controls left burner. ■ Right knob controls right burner. ■ Be sure stove is cool. ■ Always detach propane cylinder outdoors away from ignition sources. ■ The fitting on the regulator has a sliding collar that secures the regulator to the stove fuel line. Slide the collar away from the stove and then pull the regulator off the stove fuel line. ■ Detach propane cylinder from regulator and replace the plastic protective cap onto cylinder threads. ■ Adjust flame to desired heat level. ■ Remove the grill and griddle. The grill and griddle are dishwasher-safe. 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. ■ 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. ■ When grilling, always place food on grill before lighting the burner. 6 ■ 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. ■ Remove the water pan and discard the water and grease. ■ Clean the water pan with warm water and mild household cleaner. Do not use abrasives. ■ Wipe the stove clean with soft cloth and mild household cleaner. Do not use abrasives. ■ Collapse & fold the legs on the stand.

Always store propane tanks outdoors. ■ Store stove in a dry, clean and safe place. ■ Place the cleaned water pan, grill, griddle and REGULATOR into the stove for storage. ■ For long-time storage, clean and dry all stove parts and the stand before storing. Use a Coleman carry case and store indoors. This will keep the unit clean and ready for the next season. ■ If a Coleman carry case is not available, you may place the stove in a plastic bag and tie it shut. 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. Troubleshooting Problem Possible Cause Solution Burner won’t light Gas pressure is low. Cylinder is empty. Replace cylinder Air in gas line. Burner may take up to one minute to light after a propane bottle has been connected. Igniter is wet. Light the stove with a match.
