Propane Safety
 
  1. Never use or store cylinders indoors.
  2. Keep main cylinder valve securely closed when not in use. WARNING: Propane tank valves are designed to work completely open and/or completely closed. Never just crack the valve.
  3. Always position the LP cylinder so that the connection between the valves and the regulator will not cause sharp bends in the hose.
  4. The POL connector on the regulator screws into the valve outlet of a 30 lb. cylinder, by turning counterclockwise (to the left) only.
  5. Make sure the connector is free from scratches or nicks which can cause leaks.
  6. There are two (2) types of connectors (see Diagram A and Diagram B)

DISCONNECTING AND TRANSPORTING CYLINDERS FOR REFILLING:

  1. Turn off all control knobs and close the main cylinder valve.
  2. Place cylinder plug snugly in the main cylinder valve outlet.
  3. Always transport and store LP cylinders in a secured, upright position.
  4. Never keep propane cylinders in a hot car or truck. Heat could cause the relief valve to discharge propane and create a dangerous situation.

RECONNECTING A FILLED 30 lb. CYLINDER:

  1. Remove the main cylinder valve plug.
  2. Thread the POL Connector snugly into the main cylinder valve by turning counterclockwise (to the left).
  3. What you do next depends on whether you have a soft nose connector with a rubber ring or a hard nose connector:

WITH A SOFTNOSE CONNECTOR (DIAGRAM A):


If there is a handwheel, tighten firmly by hand, or use a wrench. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. The rubber O ring must be in place on soft nose POL connectors, otherwise it may not seat and form a good seal.

WITH A HARDNOSE CONNECTOR (DIAGRAM B):

Use 8" adjustable wrench. Tighten firmly but do not use excessive force.

4. Always test for leaks. Apply soapy water with a brush at areas marked with an X on the diagram. Open main cylinder valve. If bubbles appear, and further tightening of the connector does not eliminate the leak, close main cylinder valve and call a qualified propane dealer. If system is free of leaks, light burners and check for a clean blue flame.
