We want you to have a FUN and SAFE experience while cooking outdoors. Please read and follow ALL instructions carefully when using propane with your Volcano.
2. Adjust the air vent under the propane burner/cradle to get the best blue flame.
- Under the burner/cradle you will see a small, circular, metal vent. This vent controls the air to fuel ratio. We suggest that you start with it about 1/4-1/2 of the way open. Once you get it to the desired mix, tighten the thumb screw so that the vent flap does not move. Unless you drastically change altitude, you should not need to adjust it again. THiS IS NOT NECESSARY FOR POST 2011 Models. They DO NOT have the adjustment flap. So, if you turn the burner over and there is a cut that looks like it might belong in a flute, skip this step.
Note that POST CSA certification stoves ship with the brass tube and regulator hooked together. We have to do this for the certification. However, the brass tube and regulator hose can be separated with a 5/8ths and 3/4 inch wrench respectively.
Pre 2011 Models - The brass tube has two threaded ends. Attach the end with the small opening to the burner/cradle with a few smooth, right-hand turns. If the tube does not turn smoothly, remove the tube and start again. DO NOT cross-thread the two pieces! Hand-tighten, then use provided wrench to firmly secure. You may find it handier to buy an inexpensive 9/16th and 3/4 inch wrenches that are longer than those supplied with the Volcano.
Post 2011 Models - Skip this step.
- Pre 2011 Models - Angle the burner/cradle so that the attached orifice tube goes in first. Locate the circular opening inside the stove and slide the orifice tube through the opening. While lowering the burner/cradle to rest in the stove, the tube should pass through the stove and appear on the outside. Make sure the burner/cradle is set correctly so that the burner flame will flow upwards.
- Post 2011 Models - Place the burner in the Volcano and orient the burner tube towards the hole in the side of the Volcano. Pass the brass colored tube through the side of the Volcano and attach the end with the small opening to the burner/cradle with a few smooth, right-hand turns. If the tube does not turn smoothly, remove the tube and start again. DO NOT cross-thread the two pieces! Hand-tighten, then use provided wrench to firmly secure. You may find it handier to buy an inexpensive 9/16th and 3/4 inch wrenches that are longer than those supplied with the Volcano.
- Use the included wrenches to secure the connection between the tube and the hose. This connection must be TIGHT! Failure to do so may create a fire hazard.
(This applies to both post and pre 2011 models)
6. Place the heat deflector plate on top of the burner/cradle inside the stove.
- The deflector plate is designed to assist in generating even heat and preventing flare-ups. Using the plate provides better results when grilling, frying, or baking.
TO LIGHT: Make sure gas is off. Open the adjustable vents on the stove completely. Place the fire source (matches, lighter, striker) at the lip of the burner. We suggest using a long butane barbecue lighter for ease of lighting. Slowly turn on the propane supply. If the propane gas does not light, turn off gas supply and wait at least 30 seconds before trying again.
TO EXTINGUISH: Turn off the propane supply completely. The burner/cradle will be hot after use. Please allow time for the burner/cradle to cool before handling.
Removing the Propane Attachment Kit
1. Ensure that your propane supply is completely off and that you've allowed enough time for the burner/cradle to cool
2. Remove the hose from the orifice tube3. Remove the heat deflector plate and gently pull the burner/cradle from the stove
- Please note propane can be dangerous. Use in a well ventilated area. DO NOT use indoors! Ever. ( Propane gives off carbon monoxide which can be fatal)
8. Happy Cooking!
