LPG Cylinder Usage Tips

  • Put out all the flames and fires in the kitchen/ room.
  • Close all the taps on the burner.
  • Turn the switch knob of the regulator from ‘ON’ position to ‘OFF’ position.
  • Grip the regulator and pull the bush (black plastic locking ring) up and lift the regulator by giving a gentle swivel. Regulator will thus get detached from the valve.
  • Place the safety cap on top of the valve. Press the cap firmly down until a distinct click is heard. Now the empty cylinder can be removed.
  • To remove the safety cap, PULL the cord, and LIFT the cap off the valve.
  • To mount the regulator on the filled cylinder, carry out the following steps :
    • Ensure the switch knob of the regulator is in the ‘off’ position (‘Off’ letters shown on top).
    • Grip the regulator and pull the black plastic bush up.
    • Place the regulator vertically on the valve and press it down with a gentle swivel. Release the black plastic bush and press it down. (you may hear a click sound).
    • The pressure regulator is now locked.
  • Turn the switch knob anti-clockwise till it is in ‘O’ position.
  • This opens the valve on the LPG cylinder allowing the gas to pass through the regulator to the stove.
  • HOLD a lighted matchstick near the burner head.
  • Turn the knob of the burner to ON position.
