- Carefully unpack all parts from the box, compare parts with package content listed above, make sure all parts are present before beginning assembly of product. If any part is missing or damaged, do not attempt to assemble the product. Contact customer service for replacement parts.
- Open the box of lava rocks, put the lava rocks (D) into the fire bowl of the fire table (A), (See Figure 2). A gas fire pit requires 4.18 lbs lava rocks.
Keep children away during assembly, as this item contains lava rock, which are small pieces and can be swallowed by children.
NOTE Leave the pilot box uncovered by the lava rock.
- Please be advised that this fire pit is equipped with natural lava rock that may crackle or pop the first time it is used. The lava rock has been pre-heat treated to release any natural inherent moisture. However, in rare cases on first time use, the lava rock may pop or burst causing small pieces of hot rock to potentially be a projectile. These hot pieces could cause injury or property damage. As a precaution, please follow these instructions the first time the fire pit is used:(1). On first use, do not stand over or near the fire pit once lit.
- Light the fire pit and let it run on high for 20 minutes.
- Once lit, do not go within 12 feet of the fire pit for at least the first 20 minutes on the first use to ensure any residual moisture trapped in the rocks gets released.
- After the first heating cycle there is little further concern. It is rare that any crackling will happen on the first use, this is simply a precaution.
- Keep lava rock covered and dry while not in use to prevent additional moisture from getting in the rocks.
- If lava rocks are exposed to moisture after first use, run the burner on low to gradually warm and dry the rocks before repeating steps 1
Place the gas cylinder into the cylinder holder. Secure the cylinder by tightening clockwise the retention point found on the cylinder holder, so that the cylinder cannot move from side to side or fall down. Connect the regulator, screw the black handle clockwise to tighten, turn the black handle counterclockwise to remove. The hose must not turn upside. The knob on the control panel is turned all the way to the “OFF” position when the fire pit is NOT in use (See Figure 3).
Attach the door (B) with fire table (A) tenderly, (See Figure 4).
Cover the fire pit with the outdoor weather cover (C) when not in use to protect it from the elements or when fire pit is cool COMPLETELY after the use, (See Figure 5).
Battery Make sure the control knob is in the “OFF” position. Unscrew the push button cap on the ignitor module located on the control panel to access the battery compartment. The ignitor module requires one AAA size battery. BATTERY IS NOT INCLUDED.
- Please observe proper polarity and use the correct battery type when installing or replacing the battery. Improper installation could result in ignition failure.
- Please remove the battery if consumed or if product is to be left unused for a long period of time. Fig 6
Leak test To prevent fire or explosion hazard when testing for a leak:
- Always perform the leak test as described below before lighting this appliance or each time the cylinder is connected for use.
- Do not smoke or allow other sources of ignition in the area while conducting a leak test.
- Conduct the leak test outdoors in a well-ventilated area.
- Do not use matches, lighters or a flame to check for leaks.
- Do not use this appliance until any and all leaks are corrected. If you are unable to stop a leak, disconnect the propane supply and call a gas appliance service shop or your local propane gas supplier.
To perform a leak test:
- Make 2~3 oz. of leak solution by mixing one part liquid dishwashing detergent and three parts water. Noted: make sure control knob is “OFF”.
- Apply several drops of solution where the cylinder attaches to regulator, (See Figure 7), inspect the solution at the connection looking for bubbles. If NO bubbles appear, the connection is secure. If bubbles appear, the connection has the leak, disconnect the regulator, reconnect, perform another leak check. If you continue to see bubbles after several attempts, cylinder valve is defective and should be returned to cylinder’s supplier.
- Apply several drops of solution where gas valve attaches to bellows, (See Figure 8), where gas valve attaches to hose, (See Figure 9), and where inlet tube attaches to bellows, (See Figure 10). If NO bubbles appear, the connections are secure. If bubbles appear, the connection has the leak, disconnect, reconnect,perform another leak check. If you continue to see bubbles after several attempts, the part is defective and should replace the part.
- Push in gas control knob slightly and turn to “OFF”.
- Turn gas control knob to “ON/MIN”.
- Push in gas control knob all the way and hold. Continue to press the ignition button for 15 seconds.
- If the burner does not light in 15 seconds, release the knob and it will pop back out. Wait 5 minutes before attempting to light the burner again and repeat step 1 to 3.
To turn off gas Push in gas control knob slightly and turn to “OFF”
- For your safety, read and follow the Lighting Instructions in this manual and in the Rating Plate on the appliance.
- IMPROPER LIGHTING PROCEDURES COULD RESULT IN A FIRE HAZARD OR EXPLOSION HAZARD OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, INJURY OR LOSS OF LIFE. fig 11
Observe Flame Height When Lit: The burner will display blue and yellow flames. These flames should be a blue / yellow color between 1~2 in. height, (See Figure 12). These flames should not be yellow or produce thick smoke. This would indicate an obstruction of airflow through the burners. The flames should be blue with straight yellow tops.
