Propane Cylinder Safety
Liquid Propane (LP) gas has a long history of safe use when the
safety precautions provided in this manual are followed.
Failure to follow these safety precautions could result in a
re or explosion causing property damage or personal injury.
Propane gas cylinders should always be handled, stored, and
transported with extreme caution in a secured upright position.
Never attempt to use or repair a propane gas cylinder that has been
damaged. Never attempt to use or repair a cylinder with a faulty or
damaged valve outlet. A cylinder that has been dropped, dented,
or otherwise damaged must be replaced.
A propane gas cylinder should never be transported in the pas-
senger area of a vehicle.
Keep cylinders out of direct sunlight and never apply any other
source of direct heat to them.
When relling your cylinder, always insist on a reputable, qualied
gas dealer. Your propane gas cylinder is lled by weight, and should
never exceed eighty percent (80%) of its weight limit. If the cylin-
der is not completely empty, the gas dealer must make necessary
adjustments to ensure it is not overlled. Never use an overlled
Propane gas cylinder.
Your grill must be stored outdoors in a well ventilated area if the
cylinder is attached to it.
Disconnected cylinders must have a threaded valve plug tightly
installed and must not be stored in any building, garage, or other
Flammable materials (gasoline, grill covers, etc.) must not be stored
in the cylinder enclosure.
Always store Propane cylinders in a secured upright position, out
of the reach of children.
Caution: Never use Liquid Propane (LP) gas in a grill designed
for Natural gas, or Natural gas in a grill designed for Liquid
Propane gas. Questions regarding different types of gases
should be directed to your local gas supplier.

codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1. In Canada,
