Gas line piping
■
If the length of line required does not exceed 50 feet,
use a 5/8" O.D. tube. One size larger should be used
for lengths greater than 50 feet.
General Specifications for Piping
■
Note - Contact your local municipality for building
codes regulating outdoor gas barbecue installations.
In absence of Local Codes, you must conform to the
latest edition of ANSI Z223.1.
Gas piping may be copper tubing, type K or L;
polyethylene plastic tube, with a minimum wall
thickness of .062 inch; or standard weight (schedule
40) steel or wrought iron pipe.
■
Copper tubing must be tin-lined if the gas contains
more than 0.3 grams of hydrogen sulfide per 100
cubic feet of gas.
■
Plastic tubing is suitable only for outdoor,
underground use.
■
Gas piping in contact with earth, or any other material
which may corrode the piping, must be protected
against corrosion in an approved manner.
■
Underground piping must have a minimum of 18" cover.
WE RECOMMEND THAT THIS INSTALLATION BE
DONE BY A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL.
■
■
This barbecue is designed to operate at 4.5 inches of
water column pressure. Use only the regulator
supplied with the cooking module.
A manual shut-off valve must be installed outdoors,
and be accessible, not in the “built-in” structure. An
additional manual shut-off valve indoors should be
installed in the branch fuel line in an accessible
location near the supply line.
CAUTION: If young children are in the area, a locking
valve should be considered.
■
Pipe compound should be used which is resistant to the
action of natural gas when gas connections are made.
■
The gas connections must be firmly attached to rigid,
permanent construction.
Test connections
All connections and joints must be thoroughly tested for
leaks in accordance with local codes and all listed
procedures in the latest edition of ANSI Z223.1.
DANGER
The information provided in this manual is general for
typical installations. We cannot cover all possible
installation ideas. We recommend prior to installation
that you contact your municipality for local building
codes and your local fire department for installation
verification. You can also call Weber-Stephen
Products Co. at 1-888-33SUMMIT (1-888-337-8664) and
we will try and answer any questions you may have.
Do not use an open flame to check for gas
leaks. Be sure there are no sparks or open
flames in the area while you check for gas
leaks. This will result in a fire or explosion
which can cause serious bodily injury or
death, and damage to property.
If you have any questions, contact the Weber-Stephen
Customer Service Center at 1-888-33-SUMMIT
(1-888-337-8664).

BUILT-IN CONSTRUCTION GENERAL INFORMATION
CLEARANCE FROM COMBUSTIBLE SURFACES OR
STRUCTURES
WARNING
A Weber-Stephen Products Co. insulated
sleeve must be used for any built-in
installation.
Warning: Clearance from the outside walls of the
sides and back of the insulated sleeve must be a
minimum of 24 inches from a combustible surface.
Measure from the outside wall of the insulated
surface to the combustible surface. Figure 2. Refer
to “Install Gas Supply” on page 2 before starting
installation.
LOCATING YOUR BARBECUE
When determining a suitable location for your barbecue
installation, give attention to concerns such as exposure
to wind, proximity to traffic paths, and keeping any gas
supply lines as short as possible. Never locate the Weber
Gas Barbecue in a garage, breezeway, shed, under an
unprotected overhang, or other enclosed area. Locate the
barbecue and structure so there is enough room to safely
evacuate the area in case of a fire.
COMBUSTIBLE SURFACE
24 inches
CLEARANCE FROM NON-COMBUSTIBLE SURFACES
OR STRUCTURES
Warning: Clearance from the outside walls of the
sides and back of the insulated sleeve must be a
minimum of 6 inches from a non-combustible surface.
Measure from the outside wall of the insulated
surface to the non-combustible surface. Figure 1.
Refer to “Install Gas Supply” on page 2 before
starting installation.

Weight (expressed in pounds) represents the total weight
of the insulated sleeve and the cooking unit and does not
include the permanent structure housing the sleeve.
The sleeve must be supported from the bottom.
Recommended cutout dimensions “A through C” include
a nominal clearance dimension to facilitate installation.
Any additional clearance must be within tolerances
shown or fit-up of sleeve and built-in structure may be
adversely affected.
Specified insulated sleeve dimensions “A through C”
reflect the dimension to the mounting surface of the trim
excluding the .625 trim overhang.
If the supporting structure is going to have an
electrical outlet for a rotisserie , it should be on the
left side of the structure.
Countertop
WARNING: Air holes must be provided in the
structure at the top and bottom to provide ventilation
in the event of a gas leak.
Air holes can be located in a low visibility area and should
be protected by screening material to prevent rodents and
insects from entering the structure. Air holes will also help
dry moisture.
Silicon sealant
Figure 4
Before installing the sleeve, lay a bead of silicon sealant
around the top perimeter and front sides of the structure
in the areas that the flanges of the sleeve will rest. This
will prevent moisture seepage. The sealant you use must
have a temperature rating above 120°F. If necessary,
caulk between the flange of the sleeve and finished
countertop surface.
WARNING: All countertop finished surfaces must be
constructed of a noncombustible material.

The dimensions shown indicate the location of the gas
line inlet flange in the insulated sleeve. The support
members of the built-in structure must not impede
passage of the gas lines.
Area should be kept clear of sharp, jagged, or extremely
abrasive surfaces to avoid possible damage to gas supply
lines. Exercise caution when pulling gas lines through
built-in structure.
Note: Leave an access in the structure for gas supply
and regulator service.

Caution: Use two people to lift and install the
cooking module.
Lift the cooking module out of the packaging. The gas line
will hang below the module.
We recommend that you install the regulator to a rigid
structure. The regulator mounting bracket can be used to
mount the regulator to the built-in structure.
Lower the module on an angle into the sleeve so the
control panel is under the front top rail. Figure 7. Guide
the gas line through he access hole in the sleeve while
lowering the module.
The gas line from the manifold is long enough to reach
the mounted regulator. We have provided the means to
make an SAE flare connection. Do not use pipe sealant
on this connection.
