Turn off the heater and allow the heater to cool down sufficiently before stove maintenance.

Do not remove or disassemble safety devices.

① Remove the fuel tank from the heater and drain the kerosene from the fuel tank.

②  Remove the dry cell battery from the battery case.

③ Press the emergency fire extinguishing button to activate the quake-proof automatic fire extinguishing device, lower the alarm, open the guard, and remove the combustion cylinder.

④ Pull out the “control knob.

⑤  Remove the set screw of the main unit.

   While tilting the main unit forward, slowly lift it upward to remove it.

⑥ Drain the kerosene from the fuel acceptance cap.

⑦  Clean the stove with a soft cloth, especially if dust or debris has accumulated in the vibration-sensitive parts or the combustion air intake area (lower part of the guide tube).

If the inside of the stove gets dirty, wipe it off with a wet cloth, and then remove the moisture with a dry cloth. Wear gloves to avoid injury to your hands. Vacuuming is also effective.

⑧ Place the main unit back together, and place the combustion cylinder on top of the heat regulator correctly.

⑨ Make sure that the batteries have been removed from the main body and store in a dry place.

Drain the kerosene from the fuel tank and set the fuel tank on the main unit for storage. (Do not store in high temperature, high humidity, or in direct sunlight. Doing so may cause rusting or deformation of resin parts.)
