Check gas system for leaks to prevent fire or explosion hazard
1.The “Leak Check” must be performed before lighting the
grill and each time the cylinder is connected for use.
2.Do not smoke or allow other sources of ignition in the area
while conducting a leak test.
3. Conduct the leak test outdoors in a well-ventilated area.
4. Do not use matches, lighters or a flame to check for leaks.
5.Do not use grill until all leaks have been stopped. If you
are unable to stop a leak, disconnect the propane supply,
and call for gas application service or your local propane
gas supplier.
Leak Check Method
1. Make 2-3 oz. of leak solution by mixing one part liquid dishwashing soap with three parts water.
2. Make sure control knob is in the “OFF” position.
3. Spray or paint some leak solution on the cylinder and regulator connection.
4. Inspect the solution at the connections, looking for bubbles. If no bubbles appear, the connection is secure.
5. If bubbles appear, a leak is detected. Go to step 6.
6. Disconnect the cylinder from the regulator, and reconnect. Make sure the connection is secure
and no leak is found before using the grill.
7. If you continue to see bubbles, DO NOT USE THE GRILL. Repeat the above process

6. Care And Maintenance
7. FAQ and Troubleshooting
6.1 Care
Frequently Asked Questions
Regular care of your grill will help keep it operating properly. All maintenance should be done only when the
grill is cool and with the fuel supply turned off. Occasionally inspect and tighten hardware that may become loose.
Can I use a 20lb LP tank?
“You may use a standard 20 lb. LP tank with your Cuisinart Gas Grill, but you will need a conversion hose, such as the
Cuisinart QG-012B or equivalent. These hoses are widely available online, and at most home centers and hardware
stores. [be sure the 20 lb tank you are planning to use is intended for gas grill use, and has an OPD valve]”
6.2 Cleaning The Venturi Tube
A spider’s nest or wasp’s mud inside the Venturi Tube can block gas flow and can even cause a fire at the gas
control valve. Such a fire can cause operator injury and serious damage to your grill.
To prevent insect related problems, inspect the Venturi Tube screen cover regularly and remove any dirt.
WARNING!
Do not disassemble or alter the fuel supply system. Improper assembly can result in a hazardous condition.
Seek qualified professional assistance if repairs are required.
6.3 Cleaning And Maintenance

Exterior Cleaning
•
Clean grill exterior surfaces with warm soapy water. •
Wash drip tray in warm soapy water – do not run through dishwasher.

cooking grate can be removed from grill and cleaned with warm soapy water.
•
•
•
Disconnect the fuel supply and remove the fuel supply cylinder prior to cleaning.

Can I use my Cuisinart Gas Grill with natural gas?
“NO. Your Cuisinart Gas Grill is intended for use only with LP (Liquid Propane) gas. Natural Gas is NOT Liquid Propane.
Never use any other fuel source with your grill, as it will create a dangerous situation.”
“Can I add lava rocks, ceramic tiles, or charcoal briquettes to my Cuisinart Gas Grill?”
“NO. Your grill is not intended to operate with these items, and doing so may create an unsafe situation, and will
void your warranty. You may use wood planks or a wood chip “”smoker box”” on top of the cooking grate surface,
but nothing should go under the cooking grate.”

Troubleshooting
Burner won’t light (using a 16.4oz or 14.1oz LP bottle)
• Be sure LP bottle still has fuel in it by gently shaking it - there will be sounds of liquid inside if fuel remains.
• Ensure LP bottle is correctly threaded into regulator (not cross threaded) and fully tightened.
• Check to see that the venturi tube air inlet screen is not covered or clogged (see Section 6.2 on page 10).
• “Check to see that burner orafice holes are clear. If obstructed, with gas bottle disconnected, gently brush orafice
holes with a small brush.”
• Check to see that ignitor is producing a spark against the burner (best checked in shady spot).
“If above do not solve problem, unless LP tank is new, replace with new tank and attempt lighting again.”
Burner won’t light (using 20lb. Tank with conversion hose)
• Review all steps in LP bottle section above
• Ensure that LP tank supply valve is open (turned counterclockwise until stop)
• Ensure that the orifices at both ends of the conversion hose are not obstructed or damaged.
• Straighten sharp kinks in conversion hose
Grill doesn’t reach high enough temperature (using LP bottle)
• Be sure LP bottle still has fuel in it by gently shaking it - there will be sounds of liquid inside if fuel remains.
•Check to see that the venturi tube air inlet screen is not covered or clogged (see Section 6.2 on page 11).
• “Test gas system for leaks (Section 5.4, page 9)”
Grill doesn’t reach high enough temperature (using 20lb LP tank with conversion hose)
“Your LP tank has a safety device that is intended to reduce gas flow in the event of a leak. When this device is active,
it is commonly called “”bypass””. This device can be inadertantly activated by not following proper lighting procedures.
Should you experience low flame, you should do the following:
1) shut off grill
2) close tank valve fully
3) remove conversion hose to relieve pressure, then re-attach
Then, restart the grill (and start the grill each time) using the proper procedure:
1) ensure the grill fuel knob is turned to OFF
2) slowly open the gas tank valve fully
3) WAIT 15 SECONDS
4) follow the grill lighting steps (printed on grill, and in owner’s manual)”
