GAS DANGERS AND WARNINGS
LP Gas Warnings
LP Characteristics
LP gas is flammable, explosive under pressure, heavier than air and settles in pools in low areas.
Pooled gas may ignite causing a fire or explosion which could cause property damage, injury or death.
In its natural state, propane has no odor. For your safety, a scent has been added.
Contact with propane could burn your skin.
LP Tank Information
LP gas cylinders should be filled only by a certified LP gas dealer.
Never use a propane cylinder with a damaged body, valve, collar or footing.
Dented or rusted propane cylinders may be hazardous and should be checked by your propane gas
supplier.
The LP gas supply tank must be constructed and marked in accordance with the Specifications for
LP gas tanks of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or the National Standard of Canada,
CAN/CSA-B339, LP gas tanks, Spheres and Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods; and
Commission.
LP gas tanks must be arranged for vapor withdrawal.
LP gas tanks must have a listed overfilling prevention device (OPD) and a QCCI or Type I (CGA810) LP
gas tank connection.
The LP gas cylinder must contain a shuto valve as specified in the Standard for Compressed Gas
Cylinder Valve Outlet and Inlet Connection, ANSI/CGA-V-1-1977, CSA B96.
Never attempt to attach this appliance to the self-contained LP gas system of a camper trailer, motor
home or house.
Hand-turn the manual gas control valve on your LP tank. Never use tools. If the valve will not turn by
hand, do not try to repair it. Call a certified gas technician.
The use of force or any attempt at amateur repair may cause a fire or explosion.
LP Tank Storage and Safety
Cylinders must be stored upright and outdoors in a well-ventilated area out of reach of children.
Never store an LP cylinder in any enclosed area such as a shed or garage. Leaking gas could build up
in these areas and may result in an explosion.
Do not store LP gas tanks near any source of flame or ignition.
Never store your LP gas tank in direct sunlight or where temperatures can reach 125°F or higher.
Never keep a filled LP gas tank in a hot car or car trunk. Heat will cause the gas pressure to increase,
which may open the relief valve and allow gas to escape.
Place dust cap on valve outlet whenever the LP gas tank is not in use. Install only the type of dust cap
on the LP gas tank valve outlet that is provided with the LP gas tank valve. Other types of caps or
plugs may result in leakage of propane.
The LP gas tank should not be dropped or handled roughly.
LP gas is flammable and hazardous if handled improperly. Become aware of its characteristics before
using any LP gas product. Failure to understand and follow these warnings or any directions and
warnings provided by your LP supplier may result in property damage, injury or death.
DANGER
!
A LP cylinder should never be placed on its side. Doing so may cause liquid propane to leak. This
could cause a fast build-up of propane gas and could lead to property damage, injury or death.
