A leak test ensures that there are no gas leaks prior to lighting your tandoor.
The leak test, must be conducted in a well-ventilated area away from any open flame, heat or ignition
sources. Do not use a match, open flame or smoke during leak testing.

How to perform leak test:
1. With the gas supply valve on the Tandoor in the OFF position, twist the valve 1 turn or the main
natural gas valve on. Do not ignite the burners while performing the leak check.
2. Brush your soap and water solution on all connections and components.
3. Observe carefully for growing bubbles, which indicate that a leak is present.
4. If a leak is detected then DO NOT USE the tandoor. Shut off the gas source at the valve
immediately. Call a certified gas appliance service technician, or a gas dealer for proper repairs.

First Time Lighting Procedure
1. Remove the top lid before lighting.
2. Turn off the yellow gas valve located at the front of the tandoor.
3. Open the main gas valve located before the blue flexible hose.
4. At this time, you should check all gas connections for leaks using an approved leak detector.
5. Press and hold the red button on the safety valve and light the pilot. Continuously hold the red

CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
At least twice a year, clean the burner. The burner can be cleaned, by gently scraping with a brass
bristle brush. Ensure that all burner ports (openings) are clear (DO NOT ENLARGE BURNER
PORTS). If you find cracks, abnormal holes, or damage caused by corrosion during your inspection
and cleaning, replace burner. (See Warranty)
Clean the ignitor clip lightly using a wire brush to remove rust and grease. If a crack is detected, a
replacement ignitor system will be required.
Scrub the plate with a stiff long handled brass brush. The plate can also be washed with a mild
detergent. If rust appears on your plate, remove the rust with a scrub pad. If excessive wear is
evident, you might want to replace your plate.
External Stainless Steel Surface:
The external area of your tandoor should be cleaned daily to maintain a proper hygiene/cooking
environment. All grease, dust and food particles should be removed from the tandoor surface before
lighting the tandoor. It can be cleaned with a wet cloth and kitchen surface disinfectants.
DO NOT ALLOW EXCESSIVE GREASE OR OTHER RESIDUE TO BUILD UP ON YOUR
COOKING SYSTEM AS A FIRE MAY RESULT
Curing the Clay Pot for First Time Use

3. Let the tandoor absorb the mixture for 30 min.
4. Then repeat steps 2 and 3 another three times.
5. Light up your tandoor on SLOW heat for 48 hours.
6. After the tandoor cools down, with a soft cloth remove the remainder of the mixture from your
