Connecting and Replacing the Gas Cylinder

Only replace the gas cylinder in the open air, far from any open flame or heat source.
Connect the gas cylinder using following accessories:

  • 1 flexible hose for liquid gas (incl.)
  • 1 pressure regulator for liquid gas (incl.)

Connection

  1. Connect the gas hose to the heater without forcing.
  2. Install the pressure regulator on the gas cylinder.
  3. Check if the connection of the pressure regulator is correctly sealed according to the used gas cylinder.
  4. Open the valve of the gas cylinder or the pressure regulator if the gas cylinder does not feature a valve.
  5. Check if the connection is correctly sealed using soapy water: soap bubbles may point to a gas leak. Never test for gas leaks with an open flame.

The connections may have a left-handed screw thread. Consequently, they are threaded in an anticlockwise direction.
Check if there is a clamp between the pressure regulator and the gas cylinder.
It is allowed to interconnect multiple gas cylinders to increase fuel autonomy.
The feeding pressure is obtained through the pressure regulator and corresponds to the data on the specifications table.
Only use certified replacement gas hoses.

Warning iconIt is recommended to use gas cylinders of 30 kg providing a thermal power of 30 kW. You are allowed to use larger gas cylinders if more thermal power is needed.
Warning iconIt is recommended to use gas cylinders with an appropriate capacity to avoid problems due to partial fuel gasification. The correct pressure (refer to the specification tag on the heater) is indicated by the included pressure regulator or a similar model.
Warning iconMake sure the feeding gas hose is in perfect condition. Only use flexible and appropriate models when replacing the gas hose. Always respect the local regulations. Do not crimp the flexible hose.

Connecting to the Mains

Before connecting the heater to the mains, check if the used power supply and frequency match the specifications on the specification tag. Always respect the local regulations when connecting the heater to the mains.

Servicing Instructions Intended for the Technician

Any maintenance, replacement or repair activity involving a dangerous component must be done by the manufacturer, its after-sales service, or a qualified technician in order to avoid risks, even if the device has been disconnected from the mains.
Warning – Use only original replacement parts. This heater must use design-specific parts. Do not substitute or use generic parts. Improper replacement parts could cause serious or fatal injuries. This will also protect your warranty coverage for parts replaced under warranty. The technician must read this user manual prior to starting replacement, repair, or maintenance activities on the heater. Please contact the manufacturer if technical support, information on spare parts, or other information about this heater is needed.
Never operate the heater in a non-authorized manner.
Maintaining, replacing, and repairing parts of the heater does not require special tools. Always check for gas leaks in the circuit or at the connections, and make sure the pressure is correct after and before each replacement or reparation.
The appliance can be checked for soundness as below. A gas test gauge and gas leak detector spray is required.

Step 1 – Connect gas test gauge to gas meter. Connect a zeroed gas test gauge to the testing point of your gas meter.
Step 2 – Open supply valve.
Open the supply valve of the meter until the pressure increases to approximately 10 mbar. Then, close the valve.
Step 3 – Observe gas test gauge.
Wait for 1 minute and observe the gas test gauge. There should not be any perceptible movement of the water in the u-tube. If the pressure rises, it demonstrates that the supply
valve is not fully stopping the gas from leaving the meter; it is ‘letting by’. The valve will need to be checked further. You should spray leak detection spray into the valve to double-check if it is letting by. Gas let-by will be indicated by bubbles forming around the supply valve. If a leak is detected, the supply valve should be repaired or replaced by a qualified gas safe engineer.
Step 4 – Increase pressure.
If, however, there is no let-by, slowly open the supply valve and increase the pressure until the gas test gauge reads 20 mbar. Then, close the valve.
Step 5 – Wait for another minute.
Allow another minute for temperature stabilization. This is a period of time in which the gas expands or contracts and adapts to the temperature environment within the pipework. Following 1 minute, if the pressure has dropped slightly, readjust the pressure to 20 mbar by
Step 6 – Observe gas test gauge. Observe the gas test gauge over the next two minutes. During this time, there should be no pressure drop. If a drop has occurred, close the appliance isolation valves on the meter to confirm that the meter itself is not leaking and the drop is, instead, due to a faulty gas appliance. No drop is allowed in the system pipework if the isolation valves are closed.
Step 7 – Remove gauge and reseal gas test point. Following a successful test, remove the gas test gauge and reseal the gas test point on the meter.
Re-open the inlet supply valve and apply leak detector spray to the test point and all pipework before the valve to the supply pipe to double-check that there is no leak.
Never leave the heater unattended while burning.
