Operation - Propane & Natural Gas Grills
Checking for Gas Leaks
Operating Instructions
Check for gas leaks every time you connect your Broilmaster
propane gas grill to a Propane gas cylinder, when a connected
cylinder has not been used recently, or when either a natural
or propane grill is being used for the first time.
Before each use, inspect all hoses. If it is evident there is
excessive abrasion or wear, or the hose is cut, it must be
replaced prior to using your Broilmaster grill. Call your local
Broilmaster dealer for a replacement.
Using the Ignitor
Caution: Do not use an open flame when checking for
leaks. Checking for leaks with an open flame may lead
to a fire or explosion, resulting in property damage or
personal injury.
Caution: If a burner fails to light after 5 seconds, turn
the burner OFF for 5 minutes, to allow the gas to clear,
then try again.
To check for gas leaks:
Note: Each burner must be lit individually.
1. Use dish washing liquid and a little water to make a soapy
solution.
2. Turn OFF the knob on the control panel.
3. Turn ON the gas at the supply or cylinder. A hissing sound
indicates a leak. Turn OFF the gas and repair the leak.
4. Apply the soapy water solution to all gas connections.
5. Look for bubbles. Bubbles indicate a leak.
6. If there are bubbles turn OFF the gas and repair the
leak.
7. Turn the gas back ON and repeat the above procedures
until all leaks are repaired.
1. Turn knob on the grill CLOCKWISE to the OFF position.
2. Turn ON gas at the source.
3. With the grill lid open, push and turn the burner control
knob COUNTERCLOCKWISE to Hi.
4. Push and hold the ignitor button until the burner lights
(approximately 5 seconds).
5. If a burner does not light, turn OFF all gas and refer to
the Troubleshooting section of this manual.
6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for other burner.
Air Shutter Adjustment
The burner (venturi) tube air shutter is preset at the factory
so that after five minutes the burner flames are blue with well
defined cones. If, after five minutes the flame is yellow, or
there is a gap between the burner and the flame, adjust the
burner (venturi) tube air shutter as follows:
1. Turn gas OFF and let the burner cool.
2. Beneath the control panel you can access the air shutter(s)
which are located on the end of the burner tubes.
3. Loosen shutter set screw
4. Close the air shutter to the minimum opening.
5. Light the burner, wait five minutes and then carefully open
the air shutter until the flame is blue and well defined.
6. Retighten the set screw.
Using Matches
Caution: If a burner fails to light after 5 seconds, turn
the burner OFF for 5 minutes, to allow the gas to clear,
then try again.
Note: Each burner must be lit individually.
1. Turn knob on the grill CLOCKWISE to the OFF position.
2. Turn ON gas at the source.
3. Open the grill lid.
4. Insert a burning long wooden match through the lighter
hole on either side of the grill. See Figure 20.
5. Turn the burner control knob COUNTERCLOCKWISE
to HI.
6. If a burner does not light, turn OFF all gas and refer to
the Troubleshooting section of this manual.
7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 for other burner.

Operation
Before Cooking
Electrical Accessories
Before cooking on a grill for the first time, it should be
operated to burn off any oil residue from the manufacturing
process.
If an electrical accessory (e.g. rotisserie) is used on your grill,
the accessory must be electrically grounded in accordance
with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the
National Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA 70. In Canada, the electrical accessory must be electrically grounded in accordance
with the applicable section of the current Canadian Electrical
Code, CSA C22.1.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Raise the grill lid.
Light grill burners.
Burn on HI for ten minutes.
Close the lid and burn on HI for an additional ten
minutes.
5. Turn OFF gas. The grill is now ready for use.
Preheating
Any electrical accessory should be equipped with a threeprong (grounding) plug, and plugged into a properly grounded
three-prong receptacle or wall outlet. Do not cut or remove
the grounding prong from the plug.
Before cooking on a gas grill, allow the grill to preheat on
HI for 5 minutes with the lid closed.
This uses very little fuel and provides better flavor.
If an extension cord is required, use only a three-prong cord
and plug into a properly grounded receptacle as described
above.
Cooking
Do not expose an electrical accessory to water. Avoid using
any electrical accessory in wet weather as it may present a
shock hazard.
Broilmaster is happy to provide a cookbook with each of
its grills. The cookbook contains helpful cooking tips and
instructions as well as great tasting recipes for preparing
many delicious foods on your grill.

Keep any electrical cord and fuel supply hose away from all
heated surfaces.

Maintenance
Cleaning the Grill
Grease Tray
Note: Do not use a commercial cleaner on the cooking
grids. Do not brush grids while they are hot. Do not
scrape grids. This can damage the porcelain coating and
void the warranty on the cooking grids.
Burner (Venturi) Tubes
Caution: To prevent injury, use care when cleaning a
hot grill.
For baked on residue use a BRASS (NOT STEEL) brush on
the cooking grid and other components.
Burn Off
This process is much like that used in self-cleaning ovens
and is most efficient when completed after each use of the
grill.
Caution: Do not open the grill during the burn off
process. Opening the grill during the burn off process
may cause a sudden grease fire flare up that could burn
your face and arms. Wait until the grill has cooled before
opening.
1. Turn gas knob to HI. Close lid and allow the grill to
burn for ten minutes, or until no smoke is present. Do
not allow the grill to burn for more than 30 minutes.
2. Turn gas knob and supply to OFF and allow the grill to
cool.
3. Wipe COOL grill with a damp cloth to remove soot.
Grill Bottom
Periodically remove cooking grids and Char-Master Briquets
or flavor screen to clean the interior of the grill. Scrape off
baked on residue with a putty knife or brass brush and rinse
with water. Clean the bottom air holes with a small knife.
Burner Maintenance
Visually inspect the burner flames with each use. Five minutes
after lighting, the flames should be blue and have well defined
cones. See Figure 21. See the troubleshooting section if the
flames are yellow or lift off the burner.
Stainless steel burners often turn reddish brown after use.
This does not effect the performance of the grill. When
cleaning the interior of the grill, remove the burners and clean
with a brass brush. Wash with water and a mild detergent.
Correct Flame Pattern
Page 20
Empty periodically. Replacement tray liners can be
purchased at most supermarkets where disposable aluminum
baking pans are displayed.
The burner (venturi) tubes allow air and gas to mix prior
to burning, thus ensuring an efficient flame. Spiders or
other small insects may build webs or nests inside the
tubes obstructing air flow. Fire, or flashback, can occur,
in and/or around obstructed burner (venturi) tubes and can
cause damage to components beneath the grill or an unsafe
condition. To reduce risk, inspections and cleaning should
be performed at least twice monthly when spiders are active.
If the grill has been unused for an extended period of time
inspect the tubes before using the grill.
Clean burner (venturi) tubes as follows:
1. Remove the cooking grids and briquette rack or flavor
screen.
2. Remove the burner from the grill.
3. Use a small flexible brush to remove any debris from the
burner (venturi) tube.
4. Flush with water.
5. Allow the burner (venturi) tube to dry before
reinstalling.
6. Reinstall the burner, briquet rack and briquets or flavor
screen, and cooking grids.
Exterior
Clean regularly with a solution of mild detergent and hot
water. Touch-up paint is available from your dealer. Broilmaster protective covers are recommended. Stainless steel
components can be easily cleaned with a spray-on stainless
steel cleaner found in most hardware stores.
Char-Master Briquettes
If the briquettes did not come clean during burn off, after
cooling turn them over. The residue will burn off during
warm-up for the next use.
