Portable L.P. Gas Barbecue Cylinders
Liquefied Petroleum gas (abbreviated L.P. gas or propane), is
highly flammable. It becomes liquid when stored under high
pressure inside a cylinder and vaporizes when released. L.P. gas
is heavier than air and tends to collect in low areas. It is important
that there are no leaking connections on your gas grill that could
cause a fire or explosion (see the section titled “LEAK TESTING”).
Portable LP gas grills require a fuel delivery system which is
comprised of a valve [A], a hose [B], a regulator [C] with vent hole
[G], an L.P. gas supply cylinder [D], a Type 1 coupling nut [E] and
a Type 1 cylinder valve [F], (Fig. 1). Illustration in (Fig. 1) is for
description purposes only. The valve assembly for this grill is of a
different configuration.
WARNING
Your new barbecue grill is equipped with a Type 1 coupling nut
[E]. DO NOT attempt to connect to any other L.P. cylinder not
equipped with a mating Type 1 cylinder valve [F]. This grill is
not to be used with any other cylinder connection device.

• Cylinders must be stored outdoors out of the reach of
children and must not be stored in a building, garage or
any other enclosed area (Fig. 2).
Cylinder Specifications
• Any L.P. gas supply cylinder used with this grill must be
approximately 12 inches diameter and 18 inches high. The
maximum fuel capacity is 80% and is approximately 20 pounds
of propane.
• The maximum weight of a properly filled cylinder will be
approximately 38 pounds (47.7 lbs. nominal water capacity).
• The L.P. cylinder must have a shut-off valve terminating in a
Type 1 L.P. gas cylinder valve outlet (see item [F], Fig. 1).
Fig. 2
CAUTION
Have the gas dealer weigh the cylinder after filling to ensure
that the cylinder is not over filled.
Hose and Regulator
The Type 1 connection system has the following features:
1. The system will not allow gas to flow until a positive connection has
been made.
NOTE: The cylinder control valve must be turned off before any
connection is made or removed.
2. The system has a thermal element that will shut off the flow of gas
in the event of a fire.
3. The system has a flow limiting device which, when activated, will
limit the flow of gas to 10 cubic feet per hour.
4. NEVER use grill without leak testing this connection.
WARNING
• DO NOT attempt to adjust the regulator as this could
create a situation causing personal injury or property
damage.
The pressure regulator and hose assembly with the Type 1 fitting
supplied with the appliance must be used. Do not use another
hose and regulator assembly other than the one supplied with the
grill or a Coleman® replacement pressure regulator assembly. The
pressure regulator and hose assembly provided is factory set at
an outlet pressure of 11 inches water column (1/2 psi).
• Keep the small vent hole in the regulator clean of dirt and debris
(see item [G], Fig. 1).
• Consult your L.P. gas dealer if you think the regulator is not
working properly.
WARNING
• A Type 1 compatible cylinder with a Type 1 cylinder valve has a
back-check valve which does not permit gas flow, until a
positive seal has been obtained.
• The cylinder must be arranged in an upright position for vapor
withdrawal. It must also include a collar to protect the cylinder
valve. A safety relief device having direct communication with
the vapor space of cylinder must be provided. This will expel
high pressure gas if the cylinder is over filled or overheated
which could result in fire or explosion.
• All L.P. gas cylinders used with this appliance shall be
constructed and marked in accordance with the Specifications
for L.P. Gas Cylinders of the U. S. Department of Transportation
(DOT) or the National Standard of Canada, CAN/CSA-B339,
Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for Transportation of Dangerous
Goods; and Commission, as applicable; and shall be provided
with a listed overfilling prevention device, and a cylinder
connection device compatible with the connection for outdoor
cooking appliances.
• Read labels on the L.P. Gas Supply Cylinder.
• New cylinders are always shipped empty for safety.
• Allow only qualified L.P. gas dealers to fill or repair your L.P. gas
supply cylinder.
• Inform the gas dealer if it is a new or used cylinder to be filled.
• Caution the gas dealer not to overfill the cylinder.
• After filling, have the gas dealer check for leaks and to see that
the relief valve remains free to function.
During assembly of the grill and when attaching or replacing
the L.P. gas cylinder, insure that the gas supply hose is free
of kinks and/or damage and is at least 3 inches away from
hot surfaces such as the grill housing.
Transporting the Cylinder

• Transport the cylinder in an upright and secure manner with a
control valve turned off and the cap in place.
• DO NOT transport the cylinder in the passenger compartment,
unless you have an open window ventilation.
• DO NOT leave the cylinder in direct sunlight or in a high heat area
such as a closed car trunk. High heat areas could cause the relief
valve to vent gas.
• Use a cylinder cap on the cylinder valve outlet during transport
and when the cylinder is not connected to the grill.
• Keep the cylinder valve closed when not in use.
• Take the cylinder directly home after it has been filled.

Purging and Evacuating Devices for L.P.
Gas Cylinders with Type 1 Cylinder Valves
Fig. 3
CAUTION
After purging or filling an L.P. Gas cylinder, DO NOT insert a
POL plug into the valve outlet. Insertion of the plug will
prevent the back-check from closing. Use ONLY the provided
cap and strap attached to the outlet. Close the cylinder valve
knob before returning the cylinder to the customer.
For proper purging procedures refer to:
In the US: Safety Bulletin NPGA# 133, “Purging L.P. Gas
Cylinders”, and Safety Bulletin NPGA #130, “Recommended
Procedures for Filling Cylinders”.
Filling and Purging Type 1
L.P. Gas Cylinders
Take these instructions to the L.P. gas dealer.
DANGER
Purging and filling of L.P. Gas cylinders must be performed
by personnel who have been thoroughly trained in accepted
L.P. Gas industry procedures. Failure to follow this instruction
may result in explosion, fire, serious personal injury, or
death.
• When using cylinder exchange: If your grill is equipped with a
Type 1 cylinder, be sure the exchanged cylinder is a Type 1
cylinder, as a 510 POL cylinder will not fit Type 1 regulator.
• This tank is easily filled with a standard CGA 510 POL filling
connection (Fig. 4).
• New cylinders must be purged before filling. Tell your L.P. Gas
dealer if your cylinder is new and has not been previously filled.
The L.P. Gas cylinder has a Type 1 cylinder valve with a backcheck module in its outlet which will not permit gas to flow until
an evacuation device is installed. To purge the L.P. Gas cylinder,
the back-check module must be opened with an evacuation
device.
6
A. Hose end valve with a bleed port (Fig. 4):
Purging can be accomplished using a hose end valve
containing a bleed port which also allows for evacuation without
the use of an adapter.
B. Hose end valve without a bleed port:
When a hose end valve does not have a bleed port, a separate
device must be used for evacuation.
C. Purging using a Type 1 connection (Fig. 5):
L.P. Gas cylinder evacuation can be accomplished during each
purging by using a Type 1 connection. The Type 1 valve outlet
has an external 1 5/16" ACME right-hand thread which will
accept this connection.

become damaged; the cylinder MUST be replaced.
4. If you are unable to stop a leak, shut off the gas supply at the
cylinder valve. Remove the cylinder from the grill. Call a gas
appliance serviceman or L.P. gas dealer. DO NOT use grill
until the leak is corrected.
• When to test for leaks:
1. Perform a leak test each time the gas supply cylinder is
connected to the regulator. Leak test anytime a part of
the gas system is replaced.
2. Perform a leak test at least once each year whether the L.P.
gas supply cylinder has been disconnected or not.
3. Have a dealer check the cylinder for deterioration after 12
years, according to DOT regulations. Immediately replace the
cylinder if any deterioration is found.
CAUTION
Inspect the gas supply hoses before each use. Open the
door to inspect the hose assembly below the grill. Also
inspect the hose assembly below the side burner. If there are
cuts, damage, excessive abrasion or wear, replace the hoses
prior to operating the appliance. During assembly of the grill

Using the Rotisserie — 8400 Series
NOTE: Your 8400 Series grill is set up from the factory with a Back Infrared Burner. An optional
ROTISSERIE KIT to use with the back infrared burner must be purchased separately.
The grill rotisserie system is designed to cook items from the back using infrared heat. The rotisserie burner is an
infrared type which provides intense searing radiant heat. Preferred by chefs over other cooking methods, this intense
heat sears in the natural juices and nutrients found in quality cuts of meats.
CAUTION
Remove the warming rack from the grill when using the rotisserie to prevent warping from the intense heat of the infrared unit.
NOTE: The rotisserie spit rod is centered between the grill hood and the burners. It may be necessary to remove the
grates and heat tents when cooking larger portions of meat on the rotisserie. This is by design, since this configuration
gives you the most possible room above and below the rod for larger pieces of meat.
Once lit, the rotisserie burner will reach cooking temperature in 1 minute. The orange/red glow will even out in about 5 minutes.
The rotisserie motor is equipped with metal gears and is capable of turning up to 20 lbs. of food. The motor is mounted on a
bracket on the left side of the grill by sliding the motor over the bracket with the cord facing the back of the grill. Make sure
the rotisserie motor is completely seated on the bracket prior to operating. Make sure the rotisserie cord is away from any
hot surfaces.
WARNING
Electrical Grounding Instructions
This appliance (rotisserie motor) is equipped with a three-prong grounding plug for your protection against
shock hazard. It should be plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or
remove the grounding prong from this plug.
ATTACHING THE ROTISSERIE

meat forks onto the rod (prongs facing away from the handle).
Push the rod through the center of the food, then slide the
second meat fork onto the rod (prongs toward the food).
Center the food to be cooked on the rod, then push the meat
forks firmly together. Tighten the thumb screws. It may also be
necessary to wrap food with butcher’s string, (never use nylon
or plastic string) to secure the loose portions.
Once the food is secure, insert the pointed end of the
rotisserie rod into the motor assembly and rest the other end
on the support on the right-hand side of the grill (Fig. 41). If
needed, remove the cooking grates for more room. Turn the
power switch to the “On” position to start the rotisserie motor.

General Use and Correct Burner Flames
WARNING
• Keep the grill area clean and free from combustible
materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors, liquids,
and spare L.P. cylinders.
• DO NOT obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
• Keep the ventilation opening(s) of the L.P. cylinder
enclosure free and clear of debris.
• A barbecue grill becomes hot during use. DO NOT touch
grates, or cooking surfaces.
• Be sure to tighten all hardware (screws, nuts, bolts, etc.)
at least once a year or before each grilling season.

Condition The Grill
•
•
Before using the grill for the first time, or after storage,
operate the grill 15 minutes on the high setting with the lid closed,
to burn away oil.
Once the oil has burned away, check the burner flame per the
next step.
The Burner Flame
•
•
Open the grill lid. The cooking grates should be in place.
Keep your arms and face away from being directly above the
cooking area. Look through the cooking grates and observe the
burner’s flame below the heat tents. Keep your arms and face
away from being directly above the cooking area.
• Flames should appear similar to the good flame shown in
Fig. 45 and as follows:
• A good flame should be blue with a yellow tip.
• Some yellow tips on flames up to 1 inch in length are
acceptable as long as no carbon or soot deposits appear.
• If flames are excessively yellow and irregular, the oil
residue may not be completely burned off, or the venturi
may be clogged or may not be properly positioned over the
orifices. Allow the grill to cool before repositioning the venturi over
the valve and orifices.
• Grills that have been in use for a while sometimes begin to
show more yellow flame. A build-up of food deposits, fats
or cooking seasonings can cause yellowing flames.
Clean the burner to remove residue and check for clogged
burner holes or a blocked venturi. Refer to the section titled
“Cleaning the Venturi”.
.
• Regular use of your grill will actually help keep it operating
more smoothly.
• Each grill may heat differently. Some units will heat somewhat
more to the center and back of the grill. The flavor of grilled
food will improve the more you use the grill and as you
become familiar with it.

Grilling Tips and Hints
Burner Control Setting Tips
• The high flame setting is too hot for direct cooking. The high flame
setting is good for quick searing of meat, then finish
cooking on medium or low flame settings.
• Use the high flame setting with the lid closed to preheat the grill for
5 minutes before cooking and with the lid closed for a maximum of
5 minutes after cooking to burn off grease drippings.
• Use a medium flame setting for direct cooking of steaks, pork
chops, chicken and hamburgers.
• Use a low flame setting for roasts and rotisserie foods.
• Thick steaks will finish with a better texture and more juice if
first seared on high flame setting and then cooked on a low
flame setting.
Safe Grill Operation
• NEVER leave cooking food unattended. Continually observing
the food will help in maintaining an even temperature, conserve
fuel, improve the food’s flavor and lessen flare-ups.
• To open the grill lid, slowly lift the handle to avoid burning in case
of a grease fire flare-up.
• DO NOT expose any part of your body directly above the
cooking area.
Food Preparation Hints
Your grill can cook a variety of foods. For best results, follow these
instructions:
• Trim excess fat from meat and poultry. Slash any remaining fat
to stop curling, but take care not to cut the meat.
• Frozen meat and poultry should be thawed prior to cooking.
• Frozen fish and vegetables will cook without thawing.
• Salt food after cooking to help prevent drying out the food.
• Brush naturally lean meats with cooking oil or margarine.
• Cook small pieces of tender foods in foil or on special delicatefood cooking grates (see the section titled “Cooking Methods”).
• Apply barbecue, tomato or sugar-based sauces no sooner than
the last 10 minutes of cooking.
• Turn food with tongs or a spatula; piercing food (especially meat),
tends to dry it out.
In Case of Grease Fire
Follow These Steps:
1. Shut off the gas at the burner valve(s) and stay away!
2. Allow the fire to burn itself out.
3. Once the fire is out and the appliance has cooled, shut off the
L.P. cylinder valve.
4. Clean all parts and inspect for damage. Parts to check for
damage are the L.P. cylinder, cylinder valve, regulator, gas supply
hose, burner valve(s) and burner(s).
5. If any of the above mentioned components are damaged, seek
replacement from Coleman before operating the grill again by
calling 1-800-356-3612.
Note:
• Some flare-up adds a smoky flavor and sears food. Excessive
grease fires can cause a potentially hazardous situation and
damage the grill.
• Avoid excessive flare-ups by preheating the grill with the lid closed
for 5 minutes on the high setting to burn off grease from previous
cooking.
• Cook with the lid down and continually monitor cooking food to
avoid grease fires and flare-ups.
• Trimming excess fat from meat will reduce grease fires and flareups. Cook fatty meat in smaller amounts over indirect heat on a
low setting.
• Be sure to follow the instructions in the section titled “Care,
Maintenance, and Cleaning”.
Cooking Methods
Direct Method:
•
•
•
•
The heat source is directly below the food.
Use for browning meat or cooking hot dogs and hamburgers, but
check food frequently.
Use for skillet and stir-fry cooking, but limit the amount of oil
and heat to be used.
Cook roasts, turkey or duck on low heat. Place meat with
water in a foil pan with a corrugated bottom. Replenish water
as needed.
Indirect Method:
•
•
•
•
•
Light only one side of the grill and place food on the opposite
side for cooking.
Allow food to cook at a lower temperature which increases
tenderness and reduces grease flare-ups.
It is a good method for cooking foods that burn easily (vegetables,
fish, etc.).
Cook casseroles in ovenware or foil pans much like
cooking in a conventional oven.
Also try placing a pan of water above the lit burner side to
help meat retain its juices. Replenish the water as needed.
Rear Infrared Burner Method:
•
•
•
Light only the Rear Infrared Burner.
Place food on the rotisserie accessory (sold separately).
Allows food to cook slowly and evenly.
Care, Maintenance and Cleaning
DRIP TRAY
The drip tray is located below the grill, inside the cart, and should be
cleaned periodically to prevent heavy buildup of debris.
NOTE: Allow the drip tray to cool before attempting to clean.
Important: Do not leave the grill outside during inclement
weather unless it is covered (cover sold separately). Rain water
can collect inside of the grill, the grill cart or the drip tray if left
uncovered. If the drip tray is not cleaned after use and the grill
is left uncovered, the drip tray will fill with water causing grease
and water to spill into the grill cart. We recommend cleaning
and storing the drip tray after every use.
COOKING GRATES
The cooking grates can be cleaned immediately after cooking is
completed and after turning off the grill. Wear a barbecue mitt and
scrub the cooking grates with a damp cloth. If the grill is allowed to
cool down, cleaning the grates will be easier if removed from the grill
and cleaned with a mild detergent.
STAINLESS STEEL
After initial usage, areas of the grill may discolor from the intense
heat given off by the burners, this is normal and not considered
a defect.
Purchase a mild stainless steel cleaner and rub in the direction of
the grain of the metal. Specks of grease can gather on the surface of
the stainless steel and bake on to the surface and give a worn
appearance. For removal, use an non-abrasive oven cleaner in
conjunction with a stainless cleaner.
NOTE: Always scrub in the direction of the grain.
IGNITER ACCESS (ABOVE ACCESS DOORS):
To remove the igniter, unscrew the igniter push button and the
locking nut from the front panel above the access doors (Fig. 46).
The igniter will fall out through the bottom. The electrode module is
now visible. Remove the wires that are factory installed from the
electrode module to the burner electrodes. Reverse the procedure to
install a new electrode module.
NOTE: It does not matter which ignition wire goes to which tab
on the electrode module.
Fig. 46
REAR INFRARED BURNER:
Light and burn the rear infrared burner at least once a month
to ensure there is not a build-up of debris or grease on the
burner. This will ensure the ceramic burner will continue to
operate as it should.
23
Care, Maintenance and Cleaning (continued)
Fig. 49
Cleaning the Venturi
WARNING
Spider’s nests or wasp’s mud inside the venturi may cause fire
at the valve. If a fire occurs, immediately turn off the gas
supply at the L.P. cylinder valve (see representative illustration
in Fig. 47). If your grill is set up for use with Natural Gas, turn
off the gas supply at the system manual shut off valve.
Fig. 50
Fig. 47
Fig. 51
REPRESENTATIVE ILLUSTRATION
Note:
Fig. 52
Spiders and small insects can spin webs and build nests inside the
venturi tubes. This especially occurs in late summer and fall before
frost when spiders are most active. These nests can obstruct gas flow
and cause a fire in and around the burner valves. Such a fire can
cause operator injury and serious damage to the grill. To help prevent
a blockage and ensure full heat output, clean and inspect the venturi
tubes often (once or twice a month). NOTE: Water or air pressure will
not normally clear a spider web.
Steps For Cleaning Venturi:
1. Remove the cooking grates and the heat tents and set aside.
2. Using a 1/4” hex nut driver, remove the self-tapping screws
holding the front heat shield (Fig. 49 and 50). Set the front
heat shield aside.
3. Using a 1/4” hex nut driver, remove the self-tapping screws
holding the burner support assembly and the main
burner (Fig. 51).
4. Look inside lower end of venturi tubes for nests, webs or
mud (Fig. 52).
5. To remove the above obstructions, use an accessory flexible
venturi brush or bend a small hook on one end of a 20-inch long
flexible wire such as the one shown in Fig. 48.
6. Inspect and clean the burner if needed.
7. Replace the main burner, burner support assembly, and the
front heat shield into the grill.
8. Make sure the valve orifices are inside the venturi tubes (Fig. 53),
then tighten all self-tapping screws.
9. Reinstall the heat tents and the cooking grates.

no phosphorous) metal polish or stainless steel polish and a soft
cloth to prevent marring or scratching the surface. NEVER
USE OVEN CLEANER!
• ORIFICES: Unscrew the orifices from the rear of the the valves
(Fig. 54). Wash orifices in solvent and blow air through the small
end holes. Carefully replace the orifices in the valve when they
are dry. Make certain that the orifices are tightly reassembled.
DANGER
NEVER attempt to operate your grill without orifices in the
valves. A serious and immediate fire hazard would result.
• COOKING GRATES: Clean cooking grates with mild soap and
hot water. Remove stubborn residue with a mild cleanser or
scrub brush. DO NOT use a commercial oven cleaner.
• HEAT TENTS: Wipe off grease residue using a cleaning pad
and a brass-bristle brush to knock off residue. Replace heat
tents to their correct position.
• GRILL INTERIOR: Remove grates and heat tents.
Scrape side with tools and remove excess grease and cooking residue.

Troubleshooting (continued)
Problem: Flame blows out on low setting or
has uneven heat distribution.
Possible Causes and Solutions:
1. Check for spider webs or insect nests in the venturi and clean
the venturi.
2. Cold grill needs to be preheated for 5 minutes on high
setting.
3. The venturi may be misaligned and needs to be lined up
over the orifices.
4. Cold and windy weather will require you to move the grill
away from the wind.
5. Lack of fuel. Check to see that the cylinder valve is open and
that the cylinder has fuel.
Problem: Grill too hot.
Possible Causes and Solutions:
1. Excessive flareups which require the maintenance described
in the section titled “IN CASE OF GREASE FIRE”.
2. A damaged orifice or regulator which requires replacement
with factory authorized parts.
3. Buildup of grease inside the grill will require cleaning and
emptying the grease tray.
4. Choose a lower cooking temperature if using excessively
high settings.
Problem: Fire at any connection.
Possible Causes and Solutions:
IMMEDIATELY shut off cylinder valve and allow grill to cool.
1. Gas is leaking from a faulty connection. Tighten connections
with an adjustable wrench and replace damaged parts.
Perform a leak test on all connections before cooking on the
grill again.
Problem: Flame behind control panel or
control knob area.
Possible Causes and Solutions:
IMMEDIATELY shut off cylinder valve and allow grill to cool.
1. Check for spider webs or insect nest in the venturi and clean
the venturi.
2. Gas is leaking from a faulty connection. Tighten connections
with an adjustable wrench and replace damaged parts.
Perform a leak test on all connections before cooking on the
grill again.
3. The venturi may be misaligned and needs to be lined up over
the orifices.
For Your Additional Safety (continued)
YOUR NEW GAS GRILL IS EQUIPPED WITH A
TYPE 1 CONNECTION DEVICE WHICH HAS 3
SAFETY FEATURES (FIG. 55):
1. Proof of gas seal between the connector and the cylinder
before gas flow takes place.
2. A flow-limiting device designed to limit the flow of gas in
the event of a regulator or hose failure.
3. The connection has a thermal shut-off which will stop the
flow of gas if the connection reaches a certain temperature.
CURRENT GAS CYLINDERS ARE ALSO
EQUIPPED WITH AN OVERFILL PROTECTION
DEVICE (O.P.D.) WHICH GREATLY REDUCES
THE CHANCE OF ACCIDENTALLY
OVERFILLING THE CYLINDER.
SPECIAL NOTE CONCERNING L.P. GAS CYLINDERS:
It is important to insure that your gas cylinder is properly
purged before it is filled. If you purchase a new cylinder,
please inform your propane gas dealer that this is a new
cylinder and needs to be properly purged before being filled.
SPECIAL NOTE CONCERNING TYPE 1 CONNECTION
DEVICES:
If you notice very small flames on the burner(s), you may have
accidentally activated the flow-limiting device in the Type 1
connection device. Besides a rupture in the gas hose, the
flow-limiting device may activate for one of the two following
reasons:
1. Opening the burner valves before opening the cylinder
valve. SOLUTION: Shut off the burner valves and the L.P.
cylinder valve and open in the proper order:
a). Open the L.P. cylinder valve first, then
b). Open burner valve and ignite the burner
according to the instructions in this manual for
your grill.
IF YOU STILL HAVE A PROBLEM, THEN THERE MAY BE AIR IN
THE CYLINDER DUE TO IMPROPER PURGING.
2. The L.P. cylinder was not properly purged before it was filled.
SOLUTION: See your L.P. gas supplier.
Fig. 55

DANGER
If a fire occurs at the cylinder valve, DO NOT attempt to move
the cylinder. IMMEDIATELY call the fire department and clear
the area. You can safely spray water with a garden hose from
a distance of at least 15 feet away from cylinder until firemen
arrive.

For Your Additional Safety
Current L.P. gas cylinders are fitted with an Overfill
Protection Device (O.P.D.). To insure that you retain this
safety-device, take your cylinder to an L.P. gas service
station for filling, or when exchanging your cylinder at a
cylinder exchange station, request that your replacement
cylinder be fitted with the O.P.D. feature.
