Safety and Installation Instructions
Location of your Barbecue
Most importantly, this is an outdoor appliance. Ensure your barbecue is positioned safely away from
anything that can catch fire. Under no circumstance is this barbecue to be used indoors. This includes
garages or any other enclosed area.
Clearance from Combustibles: Ensure your barbecue remains at a distance of at least 18” from any
combustible material such as wood, gyprock, paper and plants. Do not store combustible materials,
gasoline or flammable liquids or vapors around the barbecue.
Adequate Ventilation: Ensure there is adequate ventilation for both the barbecue and cylinder. This is
required not only for proper combustion, but also to prevent gas build up.
Firm Level Surface: Use your barbecue only on a firm level surface. This barbecue is not designed for
recreational vehicles, and should not be installed on a boat or marine craft.
Protection from Weather: Keep the barbecue protected from adverse weather, including rain and high
winds. Polyvinyl covers are available that have been specially designed for this range of barbecues.
Allow clear access to the entire gas supply hose and regulator.
Maintenance Access: When your barbecue is installed, you should be able to access the gas supply
line including the gas piping or hose, gas regulator, gas cylinder and any shut off valves.
Partial Enclosures: Many backyards have areas that are partially closed off, such as balconies and
pergolas. In some cases, it is hard to decide whether these partially enclosed areas should be classified
as indoor areas, particularly in terms of permanent (non-closable) ventilation. The gas safety authorities
have agreed on the definition of partial enclosures below.
IMPORTANT: Consult the AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) or local contractor of any uncertainty.

Version 1.3
Never connect the appliance to an unregulated gas supply line. Grills operated without a regulator are
unsafe and will not be serviced until installed properly and safely. Unsafe operation without a gas
regulator will void warranty of the grill.
Grills operated with NG (natural gas) gas must be installed with the NG regulator supplied with the unit
and set to 4.0" water column pressure.
Grills operated with LP (liquid propane) gas must be installed with an LP regulator not supplied with the
unit and set to 11" water column pressure.
The gas valves used in the grills are preset at the factory for Natural Gas operation. Please contact your
dealer and use a licensed contractor or installer to convert your grill to the different gas type.
The self-contained LP system barbeque grill is design certified to be used with a standard 20 lb., 12 1/4"
diameter; 18" high cylinder with right handed connection threads and this is the maximum size LP tank
to be used. The cylinder must be marked in accordance with the latest U.S. Department of
Transportation specifications for LP gas cylinders. (DOT. CFR49 or National Standards of Canada
CAN/CSA-B359 Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods) a Propane
Tank with an ODP) Overfill Prevention Device) must be used at all times.
Natural Gas Requirements
Always check the Rating Plate to make sure the gas supply you are hooking up to is the gas type the grill is
manufactured for.
IMPORTANT: Never connect the grill to an unregulated gas supply.
The installation of this appliance must conform with local codes or in the absence of local codes, to the national
fuel gas code, ANSI Z223.1a-1998. Installation in Canada must be in accordance with the standard CAN/CGAB149.2, Propane Installation Code.

Version 1.3
Connection
Slide the grill forward to gain access to the regulator and gas connection point in the rear.
Connect a suitable natural gas flex connector to the grill regulator.
Check the grill controls to ensure all control valves are in the full OFF position.
Turn on the main gas supply and check all connections for leaks using soapy water as described in the
leak testing procedure section.
Warning: If you see bubbles in the soapy solution at any of the connections, turn off the gas supply and
tighten the connection. If tightening the connection does not seal the leak, it may be necessary to
replace the flex
hose.
Checking for Gas Leaks
Perform a leak test at least once a year whether the gas supply cylinder has been disconnected or not. In
addition, whenever the gas cylinder is connected to the regulator or whenever any part of the gas system is
disconnected or replaced, perform a leak test.
As a safety precaution, remember to always leak test your grill outdoors in a well-ventilated area. Never smoke
or permit sources of ignition in the area while doing a leak test. Do not use a flame, such as a lighted match to
test for leaks. Use a solution of soapy water.
Prepare a leak testing solution of soapy water by mixing in a spray bottle one part liquid soap to one part water.
Make sure all the control knobs are in the OFF position
Turn on the gas
.
On Natural Gas systems, turn the main feed valve to the grill.
On LP systems, turn the cylinder valve knob counter clockwise one turn to open.
Apply the leak-testing solution by spraying it on joints of the gas delivery system.
Blaze Outdoor Products Instructional Book

Liquid Propane (LP) Gas Requirements
LP TANK REQUIREMENTS:
A collar to protect the cylinder threads on the customer supplied tank.
An arrangement for gas vapor withdrawal.
A safety relief device having direct communication with the vapor space of the cylinder.
A method of mounting.
When not in use, the tank shut off valve should be turned off.
Filling and Refilling LP Gas Cylinders:
All purging and refilling of LP gas cylinders must be performed by qualified personnel in the LP gas industry.
Never store a spare LP gas cylinder under or near this appliance. Never fill the LP gas cylinder beyond 80
percent full. Failure to follow these instructions may result in explosion, personal injury or death.
Turn control knobs and cylinder valve to the OFF position. Unscrew valve.
Remove cylinder and have it filled at your local qualified propane dealer.
Once filled, carefully connect the valve and make sure it is secure and not leaking.
With the control knobs in the OFF position, turn on the cylinder valve.
If you smell gas or hear a hiss of gas escaping from the tank, get away from the tank and do not attempt to
correct the problem yourself. Call the Fire Department immediately.
If your grill has no leak at the cylinder, then re-check for loose connections and retest for leaks using the method
detailed in the following pages with soapy solution.
Do not subject your LP gas cylinder to excessive heat, and always store the cylinder in an upright position.
Never store your LP cylinders indoors.
Make sure that when attaching components, all connections are secured and fully tightened to prevent leakage.
If one is not already available, it is recommended that an ON-OFF shutoff valve be installed at the gas supply
source, and that the gas supply be turned off when either Natural Gas or LP Gas grills are not in use.

Installing the Grill in a BBQ Island
You will need a second person to help you avoid damaging the grill or your barbecue island.
Before installing a grill in any island or cut out, make sure that the opening is not bigger than the outside frame of
the grill unit. The grill should rest on the lip of the frame.
Pay careful attention to the location of the gas line. It should be routed away from sources of heat, sharp edges
and should make as few bends as possible.
Check to see if the gas line connection will be accessible when grill is installed.
If the gas line connection is not easily accessible when the grill is installed, support the grill above counter level
and attach the gas line to the grill. When the gas connection is made, slide the grill into the cut out. If the gas line
connection is accessible when the grill installed, slide the grill into the cut out and then attach the gas line.
Be very careful not to kink the gas line when lowering the grill into the cut out.
Keep your fingers away from where the grill will be supported on counter. Your fingers could become trapped
and serious injury could occur.
Check to make sure the grill is level and is supported around the entire outside edge. If the grill is not level or is
unstable, use non-combustible shims under the outside lip to stabilize it.
Perform the leak test procedure as described earlier in this manual.

Wear proper clothing when operating appliances. Loose-fitting or hanging garments should never be
worn while using the grill.
Do not leave the grill unattended while in use.
Do not use water on grease fires! A violent steam explosion may result. Instead, smother the fire with a
dry chemical or foam fire extinguisher.
UNIT INSTALLATION:
Your Blaze Series Grill comes pre-assembled and requires very little setup. We do however; recommend the use
of professional help during the installation of your unit as improper installation may affect your warranty.
Remove the unit from the box along with all accessories and check that no damage has occurred to the unit or
any parts.
Burners: Check the burner tubes and remove any obstructions that may be in the ports or holes. Using cold
water and a brush will be sufficient. Make sure all foreign particles are removed from the burner before use.
Make sure the air shutter on the burners is slightly opened (to about 1/8" for NG and 1/4" for LP).
For proper operation, burners must be aligned with the valve orifice and seated in the bracket slot. This is
accomplished by first placing the burner tube shutter hole securely over the valve orifice and then secure with
the cotter pin at the rear of the barbecue.
Blaze Outdoor Products Instructional Book
Page | 18
Version 1.3
Lighting Instructions
Caution: Never operate the grill unattended.
Prior to using your grill, verify that all of the following is correct:
The burner tube is free of any debris or obstruction.
Installation of the proper gas type and regulator settings.
The proper gas connection is complete.
Minimum clearances are maintained.
All packaging has been removed.
All parts and components are properly in place.
An installer-supplied manual gas shut-off valve is fully accessible.
LP hose is clean and inspected for cuts, wear, abrasion, or leaks. Replace if necessary with a suitable
UL, ETL or CSA Listed part with internally threaded connector.
LIGHTING YOUR GRILL
Become familiar with the safety instructions at the front of this manual. Do not smoke while lighting the
grill 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!
FIRST TIME OPERATION
Before cooking with your grill 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 bluish 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 grill should be preheated with the main burner control settings on HIGH for five minutes with the hood
closed.
Blaze Outdoor Products Instructional Book
Page | 19
Version 1.3
Lighting the Grill
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.
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 Grill
WARNING: Do not use standard 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.
Light and insert a long stem match, holding it near the Lighting Tube.
5.
Push in and turn the control knob to HIGH.
6.
If the burner does not light after five seconds, turn the control knobs to the OFF position.
Blaze Outdoor Products Instructional Book
Page | 20
Version 1.3
7.
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 tubers. Flashback exhibits a characteristic “whooshing”
sound. If this should occur, immediately turn off your burners, then remove and cleam them with soap, water
and a brush until all foreign objects are removed.
Fuel Conversion – Gas Regulator:
Currently all grills are supplied with a regulator set at 4” of water column pressure which is appropriate
for use with Natural Gas.
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 grill 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 grill. With either setup, remember to
always check for gas leaks after the job is complete (see checking for gas leaks).

Version 1.3
Fuel (Gas) Conversion Instructions for BLAZE Gas grills.
CAUTION: This should only by performed by a licensed gas professional.
FUEL CONVERSION - Main Burners:
1.
You must remove all cooking grids and flame tamers to expose the main burners in the grill.
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 grill. 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 grill), 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
orifice, do not over tighten or you will strip the brass fitting. Little pressure is needed!!!
8.
Replace burners and test for proper flame height. Flame should stand between ¼” – ½” on LOW. (To adjust
the LOW flame setting simply light the grill on the LOW setting and adjust the screw located under the knob
on the front of the valve using a flat head screwdriver as seen in the diagram below.)
Low flame setting
screw
9.
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 grill 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).
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.
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.
For additional information, contact us at 866-976-9510 or go to Blazegrills.com.
Preheating the Infrared Burner
Always preheat the entire grill before cooking. If the grill 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 grill has cooled
completely, use a soft brush or vacuum to remove any ash accumulation on the burner if necessary.

Cleaning Your Grill
NOTE: You should clean your grill after each use to maintain the overall appearance over the life of your grill.
After the first use, it is normal for your grill to become discolored in certain areas from the heat produced by the
burners.
Exterior Cleaning
When cleaning your grill, always scrub and polish in the direction of the stainless steel grain. Wipe down the
exterior of the grill 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 nonmetallic 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 grill.
Drip Tray
Clean the drip try after each use. Once the grill 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, Grilling and Warming Racks
To clean after each use, turn the grill on HIGH for 5-7 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 grill 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
grill. 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 grill. 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.
