Adjust Air Shutter Gaps
9-1 Determine the appropriate air shutter part
number for the left rear burner from Table 9-1
on page 9. Be sure to match the model number
and burner location. The shutter part number
appears on its side.
9-2 Thread the air shutter onto the left rear shutter
connector about 6 turns (see Figure 9-1).
9-3 Reinstall the burner base.
9-4 Measure the gap between the end of the shutter
connector and the opposite end of the shutter
opening with the pocket rule (see Figure 9-2).
9-5 Compare the measured gap to the gap listed in
Table 9-2 for the appropriate model number and
the burner location.
9-6 Hold the shutter connector with the 8”
adjustable wrench. Adjust the air shutter using
the 6” adjustable wrench until the gap is to
within 1/16” (1.6 mm) of the gap indicated in
the table.
9-7 Secure the shutter with thread-locker (see
Figure 9-2).
9-8 Check to make sure that the compression nut is
still tightened into the back of the shutter
connector.
9-9 Repeat steps 9-1 through 9-8 for the remaining
burners.

STEP 10 Perform Leak Tests
10-1 Make sure that all knobs on the front of the
cooktop are in the off position.
10-4 Re-assemble the burner heads, burner head
nuts, burner rings, and burner caps without the
spill tray in place. Be sure the igniter wire is
connected for each burner head.
10-2 With electrical power to the cooktop
disconnected, open the LPG supply valve.
10-3 Using a gas leak detector or bubble forming leak
detection fluid, check the following for leaks:
• LPG gas supply connection
• All manifold connections
10-5 Inspect all of the burner heads and verify that
the igniter for each head has not become
dislodged during re-assembly (see Figure 10-1
for the correct igniter orientation).
10-6 Connect the cooktop to the electrical outlet.
• All valve connections
10-7 Turn each burner on HIGH, one at a time.
Check for leaks around the valves (including the
bypass orifice) and the burner lines.
• Bypass orifices

Figure 10-1 Igniter Location and Connection
STEP 11 Perform Flame Tests
11-1 Turn each burner on HIGH and then off again,
several times. The igniter on each burner should
spark 2 to 5 times a second. If any of the
igniters do not spark as specified, contact the
factory. If the flame does not light repeatedly
and rapidly, check for obstructions between the
igniter and the burner head (see Figure 10-1).
11-2 Make sure that the flame:
• Is stable.
• Does not waver or lift up from the burner.
• Is predominately blue in color.
• Is not predominately yellow at the tips.
If the flame does not have the correct appearance, check the shutter gap settings (see STEP 9). Contact the
factory if adjusting the air shutters does not correct the problem.

12-4 Install the spill tray.
12-2 Fill out and apply the conversion labels:
12-5 Replace the burner heads, burner head nuts,
burner rings, and burner caps. Be sure the
igniter wire is connected to the igniter for each
burner head.
• Apply one where it can be easily read on the
floor of the chassis.
• Apply the other near the rating label on the
underside of the cooktop.
12-6 Install the cooktop grates.
12-3 Remove all of the burner heads.
