Built-In Instructions
The Electrolux Icon Grill can be installed as a built-in grill. If installed
as a built-in grill, the outdoor cooking center must be constructed of
non-combustible material.
PLANNING AND DESIGN
Start by identifying the number and size of components you want to include in your outdoor cooking
center. Countertops must be constructed of non-combustible, outdoor-safe materials. Consider outdoor
lighting to illuminate after-dark grilling. For assistance in designing and building your outdoor cooking
center, contact a landscape architect or general contractor. Review the drawings on the following
pages to determine the exact dimensions and items needed for an outdoor cooking center. Keep in
mind that the gas line hook-up is on the right hand side of the main built in-grill. The structure, grill
and support items must be kept level throughout the installation to ensure proper operation.
LOCATION
Take into account convenience and visual impact as well as traffic flow, wind exposure, and the site’s
structural suitability. The grill should never be placed in an enclosed area without an approved ventilation
system, or beneath a combustible overhang. Because the grill exhausts to the rear, it should never be
located in front of a window or less than 12” from hard-to-clean surfaces. We recommend keeping
your gas supply lines as short as possible for best performance. To ensure a perfect fit, we strongly
recommend that you have all components on hand prior to final construction.
CLEARANCE TO NON-COMBUSTIBLE CONSTRUCTION
For your safety a minimum of 3” clearance from the back of the grill to non-combustible construction
is required. You should allow at least 6” side clearance to non-combustible construction. The side
vents on this unit can be covered for built in installations without danger of fire or without impairing
the operation of the grill.
OUTBOARD IGNITER PLATE INSTALLATION (SEE DRAWING ON FOLLOWING PAGE)
The electronic igniters require a standard size deep electrical box, (available at a local hardware
store), with a minimum depth of 2.5” to be mounted in the structure. It should be placed on the front
or sides of the outdoor cooking center, with the center of the igniter buttons no more than 3” - 5” from
the grill. The igniter plates (included with the built-in grills) fit over the standard electrical box once
mounted in the structure. (See drawing on following page). If there is a ground wire for the igniter, it
needs to be grounded to a metal structure in order for the igniter to work.
UTILITIES
For natural gas grills, consult your local gas utility company for hook-up requirements. All gas connections should be made by a certified technician or a gas supply company. For natural gas installation,
the supply line must be at least 1/2” diameter. The rotisserie requires a 110/120 volt electric supply
and GFI receptacle. (6.5 amp min.) that should be installed by a qualified electrical technician. If your
plan includes a sink, arrange for a certified plumbing technician to run a water line to the site.
ELECTRICAL GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
The rotisserie kit is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug for your protection against shock
hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not cut
or remove the grounding prong from this plug.

Gas Requirements
GENERAL INFORMATION
Never attach an unregulated gas line to the appliance. Connection to an unregulated gas line can cause excessive heat or fire.
Verify the type of gas supply to be used, either Natural Gas (N.G.) or Liquid Propane (L.P.), and make sure
the serial plate agrees with that of the supply. Conversion kits are available separately for an additional cost
which will enable you to convert your grill from L.P. to N.G. or to convert your grill from N.G. to L.P. Please
see your local dealer for more information.
NOTE: Always have a qualified service technician perform difficult conversions or modifications.
For natural gas installations, an installer must supply a gas shutoff valve that is easily accessible to the grill.
All installer supplied parts must conform to local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70-1990, and the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1-1998.
All pipe sealants must be an approved type and resistant to the actions of L.P. gases. Never use pipe
sealant on flare fittings. All gas connections should be made by a competent qualified service technician and
in accordance with local codes and ordinances. In the absence of local codes, the installation must comply
with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1-1998. Gas conversions kits may be purchased separately.
When ordering gas conversion kits, have the model number, and the type of gas (N.G. or L.P.) used for
your grill.
This grill and its individual shut off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during
any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 PSIG (3.5 kPa.).
This grill must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shut-off valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 PSIG
(3.5 kPa.).
The installation of this grill must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with National
Fuel Code, ANSI Z223.1a-1998.
Installation in Canada must be in accordance with the Standard Can1-b149.1 and or .2 (installation code for
gas burning appliances and equipment) and local codes.
NATURAL GAS INSTALLATION
The gas inlet supply pressure should be between 5” and 14” water column,(w.c.) A step down regulator is
required if the line pressure is in excess of 14” w.c. Inlet pressure must not exceed 14” water column (1/2
PSIG)
Check your local gas utility company or with local codes for instructions on installing gas supply lines. Be
sure to check on type and size of run, and how deep to bury the line. If the gas supply line is too small, the
grill will not operate correctly.
Any joint sealant used must be an approved type and be resistant to chemical breakdown resulting from the
reaction with N.G.
Attach the natural gas regulator (supplied with your grill) to the brass fitting coming out the bottom, right side
of the grill (be sure the arrow on the regulator is pointing up towards the grill). Attach your gas line to the
3/8” flare fitting coming out of the natural gas regulator under the grill.
NOTE: The gas line connection and the gas fitting must be the same diameter.
Installer supplied shut-off valve (not included) - Place the shut-off valve in an accessible location to enable the
gas supply to be cut off to the unit.
NOTE: A flexible natural gas line is not included with Electrolux Icon grills. Natural gas flex line
must be purchased separately based on the distance of your grill location from the natural gas line.
Please be sure to check the size of your home’s natural gas line fitting to make sure you get the
right size connection for your particular application. If you have questions, please consult your local
natural gas distributor or qualified service technician.
Gas Requirements
L.P. GAS INSTALLATION
Electrolux Icon Gas Grills that are set to operate with L.P. gas come with a high capacity hose and
regulator assembly. (Note: Only use the pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with
the grill or a replacement pressure regulator and hose assemblies specified by Electrolux).
This assembly is designed to connect directly to a standard 20 lb. L.P. cylinder. L.P. Cylinders are
not included with the grill. L.P. Cylinders can be purchased separately at an independent dealer.
LP hose/

L.P. TANK INFORMATION
Never use a dented or rusted L.P. tank or cylinder with a damaged valve.
L.P. cylinders are equipped with an O.P.D (Overfilling Prevention Device). The device shuts off the
flow of gas to a cylinder after 80% capacity is reached. This limits the potential for release of gas
when the cylinder is heated, averting a fire or possible injury.
The L.P. cylinder must have a shut-off valve terminating in an L.P. gas supply cylinder outlet specified,
as applicable, for connection No. 510 in the standard for compressed gas cylinder valve outlet and
inlet connection ANSI/CGA-V-1. Cylinders must not be stored in a building, garage, or any other
enclosed area. (The L.P. cylinder must have an overfill protection device, OPD, on it.)
The L.P. gas supply cylinder must 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/CAS-B339, “Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous
Goods.”
L.P. TANK USE
• When turning the L.P. tank on, make sure to open the valve SLOWLY two (2) complete turns
to insure proper gas flow. Most gas tanks now come equipped with a leak detector mechanism
internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly it shuts off the gas supply. Opening
the valve rapidly may simulate a gas leak, causing the safety device to activate, restricting
gas flow causing low flames. Opening the valve slowly will insure this safety feature is not
falsely triggered.
• When not in use, gas supply cylinder valve is to be in the “OFF” position.
• The tank supply system must be stored upright to allow for vapor withdrawal.
• The regulator and hose assembly must be inspected before each use of the grill. If there is excessive
abrasion or wear or if the hose is cut, it must be replaced prior to the grill being used again.
• 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.
• Only a qualified gas supplier should refill the L.P. tank.
• Do not store a spare L.P. gas cylinder under or near the grill.

11 Pre Operation Leak Testing
GENERAL INFORMATION
Although all gas connections on the grill are leak tested prior to shipment, a complete gas tightness
check must be performed at the installation site due to possible shifting during shipment, installation or
excessive pressure unknowingly being applied to the unit. Periodically check the whole system for
leaks and immediately check the system if the smell of gas is detected.
BEFORE TESTING
Do not smoke while leak testing. Extinguish all open flames. Never leak test with an open flame.
Mix a solution of equal parts mild detergent or liquid soap and water.
TESTING
1. Turn off the burner control knobs.
2. Turn the top knob of the fuel supply cylinder counterclockwise (right to left) two (2) rotations to open.
3. Apply the soap solution to connections of the fuel supply assembly. If no soap bubbles appear, there
is no gas leak. If bubbles form at the connections, a leak is detected. If a leak is detected, immediately
turn off the gas supply, tighten any leaking fittings, turn gas on, and repeat steps 1-3.
4. Turn off the knob on the fuel supply cylinder.
5. Turn on the burner control knobs for a moment to release the pressure in the hose, then turn the
control knobs back off.
6. Wash off soapy solution with cold water and towel dry.
Check all gas supply fittings before each use and each time the gas supply cylinder is connected to
the regulator. Have a qualified service technician leak test the grill any time a part of the gas system is
replaced.
Also it is recommended to perform a leak test at least once a year whether or not the L.P. gas supply
cylinder has been disconnected.
NOTE: When leak testing this appliance, make sure to test and tighten all loose connections, including
the side burner. A slight leak in the system can result in a low flame, or hazardous condition. Most
L.P. gas tanks now come equipped with a leak detector mechanism internal to the tank, when gas
is allowed to escape rapidly it shuts off the gas supply. A leak may significantly reduce the gas
flow making the grill difficult to light or causing low flames.
NOTE: If you cannot stop a gas leak turn off the gas supply and call your local gas company or
the dealer you purchased the appliance from. If necessary, replace the faulty part with the
manufacturer’s recommended replacement part. A slight leak could cause a fire.

13 Using the Grill
GRILL LOCATION
Do not use the grill in garages, breezeways, sheds or any enclosed area. Never
operate the grill in enclosed areas as this could lead to a carbon monoxide
buildup, which could result in injury or death. Place the grill on a level surface.
Avoid moving the grill while it is in operation.
NOTE: The grill will operate best if it is not facing directly into the wind.
Clearance to combustible construction - A minimum of 12” from the sides and back must be maintained
from the gas grill above and below the cooking surface to adjacent vertical combustible construction.
Clearance to non-combustible construction - A minimum of 5” clearance from the back of the grill to
non-combustible construction is required for the lid to fully open.
Storage of an outdoor gas cooking appliance indoor is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected
and removed from the appliance.
GENERAL RULES
Do not leave the grill unattended while cooking!
1. Make sure the grill has been leak tested and is properly located.
2. Light the grill burners using the instructions provided in this manual.
3. Turn the control knobs to desired temperature “High, Medium, or Low” and preheat the grill for
10 minutes before cooking.
4. Adjust heat settings to meet your cooking needs for desired results.
5. Allow grill to cool down, wipe off any splatters or grease and clean the drip tray as needed.
6. Do not put a cover on the grill while it is still hot as it could start a fire.
!
Keep any electrical supply cords and the fuel supply hose away
from any heated surfaces.
Using the Rotisserie & Side Burners
14
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.
!
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 flavor grids 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.
Electrical Grounding Instructions
This appliance (rotisserie motor) is equipped with a three-prong (grounding)
plug for your protection against shock hazard and 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
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.
With the rotisserie motor in place and plugged
into an electrical outlet, it is now ready to operate. Slide one of the meat forks onto the rod
(prongs facing away from the rounded end. 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 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 righthand side of the grill. (If needed, remove the
cooking grates for more room). Turn the power
switch to the “On” position to start the rotisserie
motor.
Pointed End Of Rod
NOTE: Remove the rotisserie when not in use

Care and Maintenance
DRIP TRAY
The drip trays, located on the bottom left and right of the grill, should be cleaned periodically to
prevent heavy buildup of debris.
NOTE: Allow the drip trays 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.

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.
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 (UNDER SIDE BURNER & SIDE SHELF):
To remove igniter, unscrew igniter push button and locking nut from front
panel of the side burner and igniter will fall out through the bottom
IGNITER ASSEMBLY:
1. The battery, spring and igniter cap must be installed before using.
2. Install the battery, positive side first.
3. Slide spring assembly over battery.
4. Screw igniter cap onto igniter.
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.

17 Troubleshooting Your Grill
GENERAL TROUBLE SHOOTING
You should inspect the burners at least once a year or immediately if any of the following conditions
occur:
• The smell of gas.
• Flames appearing mostly yellow. (some yellow at the tips is OK)
• The grill will not get hot enough.
• Burners make a snapping noise.
• The grill heats unevenly.
SPIDER AND INSECT WARNING
Spider and insects can nest in the burners of this or any other grill and cause the gas to flow from the
front of the burner. This is very dangerous condition which can cause a fire to occur behind the valve
panel, thereby damaging the grill and making it unsafe to operate. We recommend you check the grill
and remove any spiders, insects and webs at least once a year to reduce this risk.
BEFORE CALLING CUSTOMER SERVICE
If the grill does not function properly, use the following checklist.
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
Grill will not light when the igniter button is
pushed.
Is your gas supply turned on ?
If this is an L.P. grill, is there gas in your tank ?
Check your gas level.
Is one of your burners turned on? Allow up to four
seconds of gas flow to ignite.
Is your igniter working?
- You should hear a snapping sound when
you press the igniter?
- If you hear a snapping sound can you see a
spark at the electrodes?
Note - You will need to remove your cooking
grates and flavor grids to see the electrodes.
Are you pushing the correct electronic igniter for
the burner you are trying to light?
See diagram on page #12.
Check your igniter battery and replace if needed.
Check for loose wire connections to the igniter or
electrodes.
Check to see if debris is blocking the electrodes.
If the igniter is not working can you light the grill
with a match?
