Product Care Info
Inspect Torch prior to each use. Keep torch clean, remove any debris that collects in or on Torch. Inspect for spiders and insects, they may clog burner ports or air inlets and need be removed before using. Have the appliance inspected by a qualified service technician annually. The stainless steel burner top will discolor - this is normal.
Your Tempest torch is designed to be cleaned and maintained easily. The most common maintenance that your torch will require is glass cleaning. This is done by loosening the glass retaining screws. Each piece of glass will have its own retainer. Hold the glass by the exposed edge and slide horizontally out of its tracks, the glass should slide easily if its retainer screw is loose.
Clean with glass cleaner or warm soapy water. The glass on your Tempest is tempered and designed for safety. If it breaks it will shatter into small square pieces similar to a car windshield. It is special glass and if you break one or need to replace a piece use only 3/16" thick tempered glass supplied by your Tempest Torch dealer.
To inspect for or clean debris out of the inside of your torch remove one piece of glass. This will provide access to the inside of your torch. Once your glass piece is out remove the pyramid shaped piece with the rings on the top by lifting it straight up, once you are clear of the burner elements turn it sideways and remove through the glass opening. This will provide you a clear view of all the torch components, visually check for and remove all foreign objects, vegetation, bugs , debris. When reassembling make sure you orient the Pyramid plate correctly, the burner elements that stick up through this plate are delicate. Once oriented, slide the plate straight down onto the burner assembly making sure the edges are seated all the way down.
Winterizing the Torch
These procedures only apply to areas where the torch will not be used during winter or for a long period of time. Shut off gas supply to the torch. Place the included rain cap over on top of the torch. If additional protection is desired, a cover may be placed over the torch, making sure it does not damage the glass./
