GENERAL MAINTENANCE & STORAGE
Intense heat from the cooker will bur
n away paint from parts of the frame, windscreen flashing, and flame
spreader. This is normal and will cause a slight 'odor' for a few minutes during the initial use. The exposed
steel will rust. Occasional care must be taken to prolong the life of your cooker.
1. Store cooker in a dry place. Do not store outside exposed to weather. Storage of a gas cooker
appliance indoors is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected. If storing cooker indoors, detach
and leave LP cylinder outdoors. LP cylinders must be stored outdoors out of the reach of children and
must NOT be stored in a building, garage or any other enclosed area.
2. Occasionally spray paint on affected areas of cooker frame after it has cooled.
3. Spray WD-40 on the burner grid after it has cooled.
4. For long term storage, cover cast iron burners, regulator hose assembly, and jet tube in a plastic bag.
5. Spiders and small insects have been known to spin webs inside the burner tube. Obstructions in the
burner tube interfere with the flow and mixture of air and gas through the burner. A clogged burner
tube may result in a fire beneath the appliance. If this happens, clean the burner tube with a stiff,
bent wire. Burner Tube for Model #SP10; Jet Tube for Model #SP1
6. Turn air control shutter to closed position after each use to reduce chance of insect intrusion.
( for Model #SP-10 only)
7. Do not tamper with or attempt repairs on the burners, frames, regulator valves, or LP cylinder. Allow
only qualified LP gas dealers to make repairs.

8. Always close LP cylinder valve first after use. Always use and store LP cylinder in an upright position.
Never store or transport LP cylinders in occupied enclosures.
9. Check and tighten any loose hardware before each use.
10. Never store cooking liquids in aluminum cooking pots. Salt and seasoning will form pit holes in the
bottom of the pot resulting in cooking oil leaking onto the open burner flame.
Discard any aluminum cooking vessel should cooking oil leak through pit holes. Leaking oil will ignite
and cause a fire.
11. Inspect entire cooker including regulator hose assembly and bur
ner assembly before each use.
Replace any damaged or worn parts. Use only parts specified by Barbour International, Inc.
Spray paint and other aerosols contain flammable PETROLEUM DISTILLATES under pressure. Flame from
ner or heat from cooker may cause spray can to burst violently resulting in death, serious burns and
bodily harm. Perform all touch up maintenance to a cool, dry cooker frame and burner, below 115˚F (45˚C).
