IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS: Please read carefully before using the Grenadier and retain for future reference.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE EARTHED. REFER TO RATING PLATE FOR VOLTAGE.
USING THE GRENADIER
It is strongly recommended that the Grenadier is always attended during use.
The Grenadier ignites fuel by means of hot air, the temperature of which has been raised by passing over a heating element. The temperature attained by the air is sufficiently high to ignite all domestic fuels. Ignition of fuel is not immediate and will vary from some two minutes for coal to about 10 minutes for hard coke. It is difficult to give ignition times for different fuels as these depend upon many factors, including of course,the dampness of the fuel. After you have been using the Grenadier for a while you will discover a way of using it best suited to your application.
It must be appreciated that extremely high temperatures, quite possibly in the region of 1500'C can be achieved in the immediate vicinity of the nozzle when the fuel has ignited, and to ensure a reasonable nozzle life it is important that the nozzle be withdrawn from the fuel as soon as possible.
Please note: During use the tube and nozzle of the Grenadier will discolour, this is quite normal
1) Check that the voltage is correct, assemble the Grenadier to its stand as shown in Fig 1. Ensure that the 'V' in the foot of the stand is towards the nozzle.
2) Close draught control on the fire.
3) Put the required quantity of fuel into the fuel bed, smaller pieces will assist initial combustion, and adjust the Grenadier by means of the two wing nuts, so that the nozzle is just touching the bottom of the fuel.
4) Plug into the electricity supply and switch on. CHECK THAT THE MOTOR AND FAN ARE RUNNING. Switch on the heating element by means of the key switch at the rear of the body. To operate the switch insert the removable key to a horizontal position, press in and turn clockwise to the vertical; the key will be held in position until rotated in an anti-clockwise direction to switch off - the switch is spring loaded and the key will be ejected.
5) In a short time the pieces of fuel immediately in front of the nozzle will ignite, but the firelighter should remain in position until a reasonablearea of fuel is alight.
6) After this period the draught control should be opened and the Grenadier withdrawn slightly, so that the nozzle is
clear of the fuel. The element must be switched off and the Grenadier allowed to blow cold air into the flames to
Adjust angle, and/or height, by loosening wing nuts;
spread the fire throughout the fuel bed, this part of the procedure is important as in addition to spreading the fire it cools the element ready for storing away.
7) The Grenadier must then be disconnected and stored away.
Using the Grenadier with barbecues I garden incinerators:
Always use a Residual Current Device (RCD)to protect against electrocution when the Grenadier is operated outdoors. When lighting barbecues/incinerators with the Grenadier please ensure that the extension lead is safely routed and cannot be tripped over or damaged. The Grenadier must be in a stable position and must be attended at all times, especially if children are present. Do not bury the nozzle of the Grenadier into the incinerator.
Remember to switch off the element and use the blown cold air to spread the fire once ignition has been achieved. When lighting barbecues constructed from metal, do not leave the Grenadier running for longer than necessary, otherwise the
relatively thin metal of some barbecues may be damaged.
Tube is too hot to touch while the Grenadier is in use.
Keep children away.
Insert key. push in and
ENSURE THAT THE GRENADIER IS KEPT DRY AT ALL TIMES, DON'T USE IF IT IS RAINING OR IF THE OPERATORHAS WET HANDS.
IMPORTANT DO'S AND DON'TS
DO keep the Grenadier out of reach of children at all times and put it away after use. Children should not be left unattended in a room when a firelighter is in operation. DO keep it away from flammable materials on removal from the fire and allow it to cool thoroughly before putting it away.
DO keep the electric cable off hot parts such as the nozzle and the fire, and ensure that when used with barbecues/incineratorsany extension lead is safely routed. DO use small pieces of fuel immediatelyin front of the nozzle; this helps early ignition. Also, a diagonal direction across the fuel bed helps spread the fire.
DO use a good depth of the harder fuels like coke, this helps to intensify the heating effect on these more difficult fuels. DO ensure the Grenadier is stable at all times.
DON'T allow the Grenadier to be used by persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given
instruction concerning use of the Grenadier by a person responsible for their safety.
DON'T allow fuel to block the nozzle and don't leave it in the fire longer than is necessary to start ignition. DON'T forget the Grenadier produces hot air which instantly ignites combustible items.
DON'T switch the Grenadier ON until the nozzle has been positioned ready for ignition. Switch OFF before withdrawing nozzle afterwards. DON'T pick the Grenadier up by its tube, this gets very hot in use; always use the handle on the case for carrying.
DON'T leave the Grenadier unattended during use.
DON'T use if the Grenadier is wet, or if the operator has wet hands.
