Lighting the Appliance
1.
Open the hood.
2.
Use caution when lighting burners by standing as far away from the burners as possible.
3.
To ignite burners, push the burner knob in and slowly rotate counter-clockwise to the high position.
4.
You will hear a loud click as the electronic lighter produces a spark. Listen for the sound of the gas igniting
and look for a flame through the cooking grids. If the burner does not light on the first try, repeat
immediately. (For rear burner, a slower turn of the knob is necessary. This allows gas to accumulate in the
rear burner to achieve ignition.)
5.
If the burner does not light in 5 seconds then wait five minutes until the gas clears before attempting to light
it again. Repeat the procedure or try the manual lighting procedure below.
6.
Upon successful lighting, repeat the process on the other burners you wish to light.
7.
To shut off the burners, rotate the knob and turn to OFF.
8.
It is normal to hear a popping sound when the burners are turned off.
Manually Lighting the Appliance
WARNING: Do not use standard size matches or cigarette lighters to perform match-lighting procedures. Serious
burns can occur and lighters can explode.
1.
Open the hood.
2.
If you have just attempted to light the burner, allow five minutes for any accumulated gas to dissipate.
3.
Use caution by standing as far away from the burners as possible.
4.
Hold your open flam to the top of the Lighting Tube.
Blaze Outdoor Products Instructional Book
Page | 20
Version 1.4
5.
Push in and turn the control knob to HIGH.
6.

Wait five minutes until the gas clears before attempting to light it again.
8.
If the burner does not light after several attempts, immediately close all gas valves and consult an
authorized service technician.
“FLASHBACK” may occur in or around the burner tubes. Flashback exhibits a characteristic
“whooshing” sound. If this should occur, immediately turn off your burners, then remove and clean them
with soap, water and a brush until all foreign objects are removed.
Flame Adjustment

Become familiar with the safety instructions at the front of this manual. Do not smoke while lighting the
appliance or checking the gas supply connections.

Make sure that all gas connections are securely tightened and have been leak-tested with a soapy
water solution - never with a flame!

With the cooking grids and flame tamers removed, light the main burners and run them on the high
setting.

Inspect burners for proper flame appearance. The ideal flame appearance is one that is mostly blue
and not lifting off of the burner surface. There is an air shutter found at the end of the burner (close to
the valve) which can be either opened or closed to make adjustments to the flame's appearance. To
adjust, remove the burner from the appliance and loosen the phillips head screw holding the air shutter
to the burner. If the flame is yellow, open the air shutter to make the flame bluer. If the flame is lifting off

If the burner does not light after several attempts, immediately close all gas valves and consult an authorized
service technician.
Before cooking with your appliance for the first time, burn off any foreign matter and rid the unit of any odors by
burning the unit on HIGH with the lid down for about 10 minutes. When lit, the flame should have a mostly blue
color to it. It may have a tint of yellow and adjustment to the air shutters can be made to obtain a blue flame and
proper gas glow. This appliance should be preheated before cooking with the main burner control settings on
HIGH for five minutes with the hood closed.
Cleaning Your Appliance
NOTE: You should clean your appliance after each use to maintain the overall appearance over the life of your
appliance. After the first use, it is normal for your appliance to become discolored in certain areas from the heat
produced by the burners.
Exterior Cleaning
When cleaning your appliance, always scrub and polish in the direction of the stainless steel grain. Wipe down
the exterior of the appliance to remove any splatter or grease. Do not use harsh abrasives. Use a stainless
steel cleaner to clean the exterior surface for a polished look. To remove baked-on foods, use a fine to medium
grit non-metallic abrasive pad with a stainless steel cleaner to avoid specks of grease collecting in the grain
causing the appearance of rust. Before installing the cover, always allow the surface to dry. DO NOT cover a
damp appliance.
Drip Tray
Clean the drip try after each use. Failure to do so could result in a fire. Once the appliance has cooled

completely, remove the tray by pulling it all the way out until it comes free. Clean the tray with hot soapy water
and re-install. If using an oven cleaning agent, be sure to carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions to
avoid damage to the stainless steel.
Heat Separators, Flame Tamers, Grilling and Warming Racks
To clean after each use, turn the appliance on HIGH for 10-15 minutes with the hood closed. This allows any
food particles or grease drippings to burn away. Brush components to remove any remaining charred materials.
Cast Stainless Steel Burners
The appliance must be completely cooled before proceeding. Make sure the gas supply is off and all control
knobs are in the “OFF” position. You must remove all cooking grids and flame tamers to expose the main
burners in the appliance. On the bottom rear of each burner is a cotter pin. Remove cotter pin. To remove
burner, pull rod upwards and slide burner toward the rear of the appliance. Repeat for each burner. To clean the
burners, use a wire brush to clean the exterior of the burner. Free all clogged ports of obstructions with a small
metal object. Clean out any debris through the air shutter and inspect the burner inlet to ensure it is free of any
obstructions. Use a rod or pipe cleaner to remove any debris within the burner if necessary.
NOTE: Make sure each burner is properly placed after cleaning. It is very important to ensure the end of the
burner is installed appropriately onto the gas valve to ensure gas flows safely into the burner. Failure to meet
these conditions can cause dangerous conditions that can cause personal injury and/or property damage.
Optional Infrared Sear Burner
How to Replace Conventional Burner with Infrared Sear Burner

To install the optional infrared burner, begin by removing the far left cooking grid, flame stabilizing grid
and zone divider.

Remove conventional burner by first removing the cotter pin that holds it in place, located on the
bottom rear of the burner. With the cotter pin removed, remove the conventional burner.

Remove crossfire by removing the Phillips head screw in the middle that holds it in place. With the
crossfire removed, place the infrared burner in place, leaving off the crossfire and flame tamer.

Replace the heat zone divider and cooking grid.

Do not use this burner with the flamer stabilizer grid reinstalled above the burner.
Note: It is critical that the end of the infrared burner is installed appropriately onto the gas valve to ensure gas
flows safely into the burner.

Version 1.4
Preheating the Infrared Burner
Always preheat the entire appliance before cooking. If the appliance is already hot from cooking, you should still
preheat the infrared burner for 3 minutes. Never place food over the burner until it is fully preheated to avoid
clogging the tiny ports and damaging the burner from grease drippings and food particles.
Infrared Burner Cleaning
To keep your infrared burner operating at maximum performance after each use, turn it on HIGH for 5-7 minutes
with the hood open. This allows any food particles or grease drippings to burn away. Once your appliance has
cooled completely, use a soft brush or vacuum to remove any ash accumulation on the burner if necessary.
Fuel Conversion
Gas Regulator:

Currently all grills are supplied with a regulator which is appropriate for use with Natural Gas or
Propane.

When converting to Propane Gas, the most common Propane canister used is a smaller sized portable
canister (typically 5 gallons or 20 pounds).

The pre-installed regulator will need to be removed and replaced with a low pressure hose and
regulator with an outbound pressure set to approximately 11" of water column pressure. If an individual
is intending on using Propane provided from a larger tank permanently installed on location, the
regulator included with the appliance can be converted for use with LP fuel (see NG-LP Regulator
Conversion below).

Please be aware that this included regulator can only withstand an inbound pressure of .5 PSI or
roughly 14 inches of water column pressure. Any higher pressure on location will have to be further
regulated before connecting to the regulator on the appliance. Please consult your local Propane gas
provider to confirm the gas pressure on the supply line feeding the appliance. With either setup,
remember to always check for gas leaks after the job is complete (see checking for gas leaks).

Fuel (Gas) Conversion Instructions for BLAZE Gas grills.
CAUTION: This should only by performed by a licensed gas professional.
Main Burners:
1.
You must remove all cooking grids and flame tamers to expose the main burners in the appliance.
2.
On the bottom rear of each burner is a cotter pin. Remove cotter pin.
3.
To remove burner, pull rod upwards and slide burner toward the rear of the appliance. Repeat for each
burner.
4.
Where the burner was previously located, connecting to the main valve through the hole in the basin should
now be empty space.
5.
Inside the space you will find the end of the valve (toward the front of appliance), with an orifice (brass
fitting), screwed into the end of the valve stem.
6.
Carefully remove the orifice with a 6mm socket set and extension. (These are extremely fragile! When
unscrewing, be extremely gentle, for you could easily break the brass fitting and have to replace the valve).
7.
Once the old orifice is removed, replace it with the new orifice, (repeat for all burners). When re-installing
the orifice, do not over tighten or you will strip the brass fitting. Little pressure is needed!!!
8.
Inspect burners for proper flame appearance. The ideal flame appearance is one that is mostly blue and not
lifting off of the burner surface. There is an air shutter found at the end of the burner (close to the valve)
which can be either opened or closed to make adjustments to the flame's appearance. To adjust, remove
the burner from the appliance and loosen the phillips head screw holding the air shutter to the burner. If the
flame is yellow, open the air shutter to make the flame bluer. If the flame is lifting off of the burner surface,
slightly close the air shutter. Re-tighten the phillips head screw and re-install the burner to recheck the flame
appearance. Repeat if necessary.
Rear Burner
For the Blaze 4 & 5 Burner, replace the back burner orifice by removing the plate on the rear of the BBQ and
carefully removing the fitting. Replace with the provided conversion back burner orifice – large brass fitting
(differs from small BBQ burner orifice).
