How to load a cartridge into the Super Bleuet stove
|Step 1 - the bottom of the stove has a removable base.|
Twist and remove - it is quite stiff ...
(if you take the bottom off with a "full" can,
it will dump the gas,
and may shoot the cartridge out with some pressure!)
|... the inside of the stove. If storing for a long time,|
it is best to store without a cartridge in it.
|The base of the stove has a "spring plate" to keep the gas canister pressed tightly against|
the burner head unit. The gas pressure may well "blow" the cartridge off the burner head unit,
dumping the gas, if you take the base off with a "live" gas cartridge in the stove.
|Step 2 - unscrew the burner head unit from the stove.|
If you do this with a "live" cartridge, it will leak the remaining gas,
but will not shoot the cartridge out under pressure,
|Step 3 - put in the new cartridge|
(this is a C200, but the C206 fits as well)
|Push the base back on, and twist to lock.|
It is quite stiff, and remember that
"spring plate" makes it stiffer.
|A nice cup of tea.|
(this is a "double sized" cup, which is why 400 ml / 13.5 US fl oz does not even fill it!)
I like my tea!
