Thank you for purchasing a Legendary Lighting copper gas lantern. Each
lantern is crafted with pride in America, using copper, a natural metal
that weathers with time. You will enjoy many different color changes as
your lantern ages. Please allow six or more weeks for the copper to adjust
to heat and climate conditions in your area. You may notice the top of
your lantern changing rapidly as the heat from the flame rises to the
top. It may appear brass, nickel or even red in color for the first few
weeks; however, it will soon turn "penny" colored and remain
that way for many years. Eventually, your lantern will patina to a beautiful
oxidized copper finish of burnish browns and greenish hues.
you will need to clean the glass on your lantern. To do this on a manual
lit lantern, simply open the door, turn off the flame and allow your lantern
to cool for several minutes. Lanterns equipped with electronic ignition
can be turned off at the light switch. Clean the glass with the glass
cleaner of your choice after it has cooled off. Re-light your gas lantern
(manual version) by holding a lighter over the tip and then turning the
valve on. Lanterns equipped with electronic ignition can be turned on
with a flip of the light switch. To retain more of the original copper
color, rinse the lantern with water, then apply a mild soap solution such
as dishwashing liquid mixed with water to remove any dust, grime or bird
residue. Rinse off again using water.
your flame may seem to have lost its' shape. This may occur after cleaning
the glass or due to sulfur build up in the tip. To correct, open the door
and turn off the gas valve, extinguishing the flame or just turn off the
power if you have a model equipped with electronic ignition. Place a razor
blade edge or dental floss inside the slit at the tip of the burner, rubbing
back and forth. This will clean the tip and remove any debris that may
distort the flame. If your lantern is designed to burn using propane gas
the burner air intake holes will occasionally need to be cleaned out.
The air intake holes are located on the side of the burner stem near the
bottom. Use a pipe cleaner by pushing it through the air intake holes,
a shot of compressed air can also be used to dislodge any debris that
may impede air flow. Clogged air intake holes may cause your propane burner
to burn improperly causing soot to form on the glass.
will require very little maintenance over the years. We hope it will offer
as much pride to your home as it has to us in crafting it for you.
