ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
A I R S U P P LY
Installation of this rotisserie must include a
provision for an adequate flow of fresh air for gas
combustion. This requirement must be observed by
the installer as well as the operator. The bottom of
the rotisserie provides air supply access for gas
combustion and must be kept clear at all times.
O P E R ATO R
C AU T I O N
Make certain the area around
the bottom of the rotisserie is
kept clear of obstructions to
allow a continuous supply of
fresh air for gas combustion.
Make certain the rotisserie installation maintains
adequate air ventilation to provide cooling for
electrical and gas components. The area around the
rotisserie should be clear of any obstructions which
might retard the flow of cooling air. Failure to
observe this caution may result in damage to the
control components and will void the warranty.
Ensure that the electrical supply matches the
specification on the rotisserie data plate. Gas models
available for USA and Canada are typically rated for
110-120V, 60Hz, 1Ph. An electric cord is supplied
and is ready to use. The oven must be electrically
grounded in accordance with local codes, or in the
absence of local codes, with the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 (latest edition) or in Canada
with the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1. The
installation of any wiring or electrical connections
must be done by a licensed electrical contractor.
ACCESSING CONTROL AREA
To access the electrical/control system, make sure to
disconnect power and ensure the gas supply is shut
OFF before removing any access panels. The
electrical diagram is affixed to the rear of the unit.
A copy of the electrical diagram is shown at the back

GAS CONNECTIONS
The installation of this rotisserie must be
completed by a qualified installer familiar with the
local codes and regulations governing the installation
of commercial gas appliances. The installation must
be made in accordance with local codes or, in the
absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas
Code ANSI Z223.1 (latest edition). In Canada, the
appropriate code is the Natural Gas Installation
Code, CAN/CGA-B149.1 or the Propane Installation
Code, CAN/CGA-B149.2.
Both
the appliance and the individual appliance
shutoff 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 psi (3.45 kPa).
The
appliance must be isolated from the gas
supply piping system by closing the individual
appliance manual shutoff valve during any pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at test
pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psi (3.45 kPa).
GAS TYPE & PRESSURE
Check the nameplate information to determine
the type of gas for which the rotisserie was
manufactured (natural or propane) and make certain
the gas supply matches the nameplate information.
Check the nameplate to determine the gas
manifold pressure for the rotisserie. The minimum
supply pressure to the appliance must exceed this
value by at least 1" w.c. It is recommended that the
supply pressure be between 6" w.c. and 14" w.c. for
natural gas, and 11" w.c. and 14" w.c. for propane.
GAS CONNECTION
The minimum size of the gas piping or flexible
connector is 3/4" (19mm). For long runs of gas
piping, the pipe diameter must conform to the tables
in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI/NFPA Z223.1
A listed gas shut off valve must be installed
upstream of the appliance for shutting off the gas
supply while servicing. This valve should be
installed so that it is accessible with the appliance in
the normally installed position.
disconnect device must also be used that complies
with the Standard for Quick-Disconnect Devices for
Gas Fuels, ANSI Z21.41; or in Canada, Quick
Disconnect Devices for Use with Gas Fuels, CAN1-6.9.
When a quick disconnect device and flexible
connector are used, a restraining device must be
installed to limit the movement of the appliance in
order to prevent damage to the connector or quick
disconnect. An example of such a system uses 2000
pound test stainless steel cable attached to a
structural member of the kitchen wall behind the
unit. The attachment means must include a quick
connect snap that can be disconnected when the
appliance must be moved away from the wall. The
other end of the cable should be permanently
attached to the rear frame of the rotisserie. The cable
should be of sufficient length so that no strain is ever
placed upon the flexible gas connector if the
appliance is accidentally moved without initially
disconnecting the gas connector.
Routing of the flexible connector must not be
installed under the
INCORRECT
CORRECT
rotisserie. The
temperature in this
location is much
too hot for safe
operation. The
flexible connector
must be routed so that
it forms a downward
"U" loop between the

LEAK TESTING
If a pressure leak test above 1/2 psi is to be
conducted on the building supply gas piping, the
shutoff gas valve and rotisserie inlet gas supply line
must be disconnected from the building supply
piping before conducting the pressure test. Failure
to do so may result in damage to the manual gas
valve and/or gas components in the rotisserie.
If any gas leak tests are to be conducted at
pressures equal to or below 1/2 psi, the manual gas
shut off valve upstream of the rotisserie must be
turned off before conducting the tests.
Leak testing of the internal oven piping system
was conducted before shipping the rotisserie from
the factory. If additional testing is needed, it should
only be conducted at normal gas supply pressures. If
the testing is performed using combustible gas in the
piping, leak testing should be conducted with a soap
solution (bubble checking) or other approved liquid.
This unit is equipped with a manual "direct spark
ignition" for ease of lighting the burners. The
intermittent push button switch is located on the
control panel to the left of the control knobs. This
switch sends a signal to a spark module that
energizes all of the igniters and lights the burner.
The electrodes are located just above the burner
under the burner cover on the right hand side of the
rotisserie. These electrodes are very fragile and care
must be taken if adjustment is required. Special care
must be used to prevent breakage of the porcelain
insulator. If the porcelain is damaged or broken, the
igniter assembly must be replaced. The end of the
electrode must have a gap of 1/8” to 3/16” (3mm to
5mm) from the top surface of the burner. The spark
must be maintained between the electrode and the
burner for proper ignition.
PRESSURE CHARGE
NEVER CHECK FOR LEAKS
USING AN OPEN FLAME
The use of electronic combustible gas leak
detectors may be helpful. Such detectors can be
oversensitive, however, they may help find leaks that
are not visible when checking with a liquid solution,
and, therefore, present no hazard.
When starting the rotisserie after initial
installation, the gas lines must be free of air which
may take up to 30 minutes. If the burners do not light
after this period of time, call factory for assistance.
The gas train and orifice for the main burner has
been fitted according to the gas type specified on the
data plate. Technical specifications for the gas

control fails to extinguish the flame, shut off main
gas valve located in rear of unit. This unit requires
the ventilation hood to be working during testing.
G A S F L A M E PAT T E R N S
When starting the rotisserie after initial installation, the gas lines must be free of air pockets. It may
take up to 30 minutes to free the lines. If, after this time there is no ignition, call for factory assistance.
For all practical purposes, the following will be the only check necessary
during initial operation by the installer. After the installation is complete
the oven must be test fired to ensure that the system is operating properly.
Follow the operating instructions posted on the front of the unit.
The flame pattern both under hot and cold conditions should be stable on all
burner ports and there should be no lifting or blowing after 4 seconds of
operation. There is an air shutter adjustment on these burners. If the flame
pattern does not match that shown, contact the factory for further directions.
Make certain the electric igniter lights the burner quickly. The main burner
should ignite within 4-seconds, smoothly, with no harsh noise or any
problem. Make sure that the burner is lighting quickly from the electric
igniter. Allow the rotisserie to heat for 5 minutes and repeat the process.
Check the flame pattern on the burners. When using natural gas, the
flames should be blue in color with little or no yellow in the flame. On
propane gas some yellow tipping is normal.

PRODUCT PREPARATION
For a more flavorful product, season the inside of
each chicken prior to cooking. Operators may also
want to consider the use of a marinade or the
purchase of pre-marinated chickens. For best
results, truss each bird prior to inserting on the spit.
To produce a more roasted appearance and
additional flaming, the skin of each chicken can
be pricked prior to insertion on the skewer. This
procedure, however, will bubble the skin and
produce additional spatter during cooking.
USING A FROZEN PRODUCT IS NOT RECOMMENDED.
SKEWER PREPARATION & LOADING
The rotisserie is furnished with six, removable skewers, each with 35-inches
(889mm) of usable length. Average capacity per skewer is six 2-1/4 to
2-1/2 pound (1 to 1,1 kg) chickens up to 3-1/2 pounds (1,6 kg) per
bird. If fewer chickens are used, space them evenly along the
length of the spit. Insert the first bird, tail end first, on
the end of the skewer opposite the SPIT DRIVE SHAFT .
CAU T I O N
Always use hand protection
when handling spits whenever
the rotisserie is hot.
Slide the bird down along the spit toward the “T” shaped end. Continue in the same manner for each
additional bird. Make certain to leave 2 to 3-inches (5 to 7,6cm) of free space between the first bird and the
“T” end of the spit and the last bird and the round end of the spit. After preheating, properly insert each of
the prepared spits into the rotisserie according to the method explained in this manual. Adjust the depth of
the spits according to the size of the birds to be roasted and the speed of cooking desired. A closer
adjustment will provide additional color. Because heat rises, the chickens on the bottom spit will cook at a
slower rate than those above unless positioned closer to the heat source.
When all spits are loaded and positioned, select and activate the geared motors with the spit rotation
switches for the quantity and placement of the prepared spits.

FOR A MINIMUM OF 20 MINUTES
BEFORE LOADING PREPARED SPITS.
TO FACILITATE CLEANUP, POUR WATER INTO THE DRIP PAN
IN SUFFICIENT AMOUNT TO COVER THE BOTTOM OF THE PAN.
MAINTAIN THE WATER LEVEL THROUGHOUT THE COOKING PROCESS.
COOK TIME
Estimate 60 to 75 minutes of cooking time for
3 to 3 -1/2 pound (1,3 to 1,6 kg) birds and 50 to 60
minutes cook time for 2 -1/2 lb. (1,2 kg) birds. Time
may need to be adjusted based on external climactic
conditions, the adjustment of the spits, and the
quality and size of the bird to be roasted.
For food safety, it is important to check the internal
temperature of the cooked product with a clean and
accurate thermometer. The temperature requirements
for chicken is between 185° and 190°F (85° and 89°C).
Juices should be clear and the joint where the drumstick
meets the body should be loose.
CAU T I O N
Always use hand protection
when handling spits whenever
the rotisserie is hot.
CAUTION: Placing plates or other objects on top
of the rotisserie or obstructing the gas
exhaust pipe and ventilation areas in
any way is strictly prohibited.
CAUTION: Never use or place aluminum foil in
the rotisserie.
CAUTION: For the correct operation of the
rotisserie and to help avoid grease
splatter, the window door must be
closed and the locking mechanism
engaged during cooking.
When the chickens are fully cooked, remove the spit
from the rotisserie and slide each bird off the spit
with a large fork. Cooked chickens must be
immediately placed in a controlled holding
environment at or above 140°F (60°C).
