After completing the gas hose
connections, conduct a leak test
following the leak test procedure before
using the appliance.
To ensure gas tight connections,
complete the gas leak test procedure
before and after gas hose connection
and after every reconnection of the gas
cylinder. Failure to do so may result in a
fire or explosion.
Leak test procedure
Ensure all gas valves are in the 'OFF' position.
In a small container, mix a solution of water and
detergent or soap.
After connection of the hose, turn on the gas supply at
the gas bottle.
Using a brush apply the solution to all gas connection
points and look for bubbles forming.
Bubbling will indicate a leak.
Turn off the gas supply and re-tighten the joint.
Repeat the leak test.
If the leak persists, turn off the gas at the bottle and
contact a licensed gas fitter to correct.
