General Safety Information
This manual contains important information about the



assembly, operation and maintenance of this patio heater.
General safety information is presented in these first few
pages and is also located throughout the manual.
Keep this manual for future reference and to educate

This appliance can produce carbon

precautions are necessary when using, storing, and
servicing. Using this equipment with the respect and
caution demanded will reduce the possibilities of personal
injury or property damage.
The following symbols shown below are used extensively
throughout this manual. Always heed these precautions,
as they are essential when using any mechanical or
fueled equipment.

Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service or maintenance
can cause property damage, injury or death. Read the installation,
operation and maintenance instructions thoroughly before installing
or servicing this equipment.

Failure to comply with the precautions and instructions
provided with this heater can result in death, serious bodily injury
and property loss or damage from hazards of fire,explosion,
burn, asphyxiation, and/or carbon monoxide poisoning.
Only persons who can understand and follow the instructions
should use or service this heater.




• Keep solid combustibles, such as building materials,
paper or cardboard, a safe distance away from the heater
as recommended by the instructions.
• Provide adequate clearances around air openings into
the combustion chamber.
• Never use the heater in spaces which do or may contain
volatile or airborne combustibles, or products such as
gasoline, solvents, paint thinner, dust particles or unknown

• This heater 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 heater.

• 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.

Turn Cylinder Valve ON.
If bubbles appear at any connection, there is a leak.
Turn Cylinder Valve OFF.
If leak is at Hose/Regulator connection: tighten
connection and perform another leak test. If bubbles
continue appearing should be returned to Hose’s place
of purchase.
If leak is at Regulator/Cylinder Valve connection:
disconnect, reconnect, and perform another leak
check. If you continue to see bubbles after several
attempts, cylinder valve is defective and should be
returned to cylinder’s place of purchase.
