NOTE about LP Gas Tank Exchange Programs

• Many retailers that sell grills offer you the option of

replacing your empty LP Gas tank through an ex­
change service. Use only those reputable exchange

companies that inspect, precision fill, test and certify
their tanks. Exchange your tank only for an OPD safety

feature-equipped tank as described in the LP Gas
tank section of this manual.

• Always keep new and exchanged LP Gas tanks in

an upright position during use, transit or storage.

• Leak test new and exchanged LP Gas tanks BE­

connecting one to your grill.

How to Leak Test your LP Gas Tank

For your safety:

• All leak tests must be repeated each time your LP

Gas tank is exchanged or refilled.

• When checking for gas leaks do not smoke,

• Do not use an open flame to check for gas leaks.

• Your grill must be leak tested outdoors in a well-

ventilated area, away from ignition sources such as

gas fired or electrical appliances. During the leak test,
keep your grill away from open flames or sparks.

• Do not use household cleaning agents. Damage to

gas assembly components can result.
