  • Always protect your patio heater with a Sahara Patio Heater Cover between use.
  • Ensure the patio heater has fully cooled before putting the cover on.
  • Regularly clean your patio heater between uses and especially after extended periods of storage.
  • Ensure the heater control is turned fully to the off position, the gas supply is shut off at the regulator or bottle / cylinder valve, and the heater and its components are sufficiently cool before cleaning.
  • Never douse the heater with water when its surfaces are hot.
  • Remove the burner mesh by unscrewing the 3 bolts along the lower edge.
  • Clean the burner mesh by brushing lightly with a wire brush
  • Using a non-wire brush clean away any debris, cobwebs, foreign particles, etc from the burner.
  • If available use compressed air to blow through the portholes on the burner.
  • Clear down the patio heater body with warm soapy water and dry thoroughly.
  • We recommend that servicing of this appliance should be performed either after every 100 hours of use or annually, which ever is achieved soonest.
