HAVE CONNECTORS CHECKED WHEN MOVING OR REPLACING APPLIANCES. Connectors can wear out from too much moving, bending, or corrosion. Connectors should be checked by Eastern or a qualified gas service technician whenever the appliance is replaced or moved from its location.
USE ONLY APPROVED APPLIANCE CONNECTORS. Make sure that all connectors and gas piping/tubing that bring propane to your appliances are installed by a qualified gas service technician and approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
HAVE OLDER APPLIANCE CONNECTORS INSPECTED. Over time, some types of appliance connectors can crack or break, resulting in a serious gas leak and the possibility of fire or explosion. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has warned that certain types of older connectors are extremely dangerous. If you have an appliance that is more than 20 years old, have Eastern or a qualified gas service technician inspect the connectors to be sure they are safe and meet current safety-code requirements.
DO NOT MOVE AN APPLIANCE YOURSELF to check the connector; this might damage the connector and create a leak.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO PROPERLY INSTALL AND MAINTAIN CONNECTORS
