Installation Safety Precautions
• Use grill, as purchased, only with LP (propane) gas and the
regulator/valve assembly supplied. If your grill is Dual Fuel ready,
a conversion kit must be purchased for use with natural gas.
• Grill installation must conform with local codes, or in their
absence of local codes, with either the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA 54, Natural Gas and Propane
Installation Code, CSA B149.1, or Propane Storage and
Handling Code, B149.2.
• All electrical accessories (such as rotisserie) must be

• Important: Make sure gas is off at LP cylinder before
checking valves. Knobs lock in OFF position. To check
valves, first push in knobs and release, knobs should spring
back. If knobs do not spring back, replace valve assembly
before using grill. Turn knobs to LOW position then turn back to
OFF position. Valves should turn smoothly.
Hose Check
• Before each use, check to see if hoses are cut or worn or kinked.
Replace damaged hoses before using grill. Use only
valve/hose/regulator specified by manufacturer.
General Grill Cleaning
• Do not mistake brown or black accumulation of grease and
smoke for paint. Interiors of gas grills are not painted at the
factory (and should never be painted). Apply a strong solution
of detergent and water or use a grill cleaner with scrub brush
on insides of grill lid and bottom. Rinse and allow to completely
air dry. Do not apply a caustic grill/oven cleaner to painted
surfaces.
• Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry.
s
Do not use citrisol, abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a
concentrated grill cleaner on plastic parts. Damage to and
failure of parts can result.
• Porcelain surfaces: Because of glass-like composition, most
residue can be wiped away with baking soda/water solution or
specially formulated cleaner. Use nonabrasive scouring powder
for stubborn stains.
• Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or nonabrasive
cleaner and warm soapy water. Wipe dry with a soft
nonabrasive cloth.
• Stainless steel surfaces: To maintain your grill’s high quality
appearance, wash with mild detergent and warm soapy water
and wipe dry with a soft cloth after each use. Baked-on grease
deposits may require the use of an abrasive plastic cleaning
pad. Use only in direction of brushed finish to avoid damage.
Do not use abrasive pad on areas with graphics.
• Cooking surfaces: If a bristle brush is used to clean any of
the grill cooking surfaces, ensure no loose bristles remain on
cooking surfaces prior to grilling. It is not recommended to
clean cooking surfaces while grill is hot.
3. Remove carryover tubes and burners.
4. Detach electrode from burner.
CAUTION
SPIDER ALERT!
SPIDER AND WEBS
INSIDE BURNER TUBE
If you notice that your grill is getting hard to light or that the
flame isn’t as strong as it should be, take the time to check and
clean the venturi’s.
VALVE
CONTROL PANEL
SPIDER WEBS
INSIDE VENTURI
BURNER
In some areas of the country, spiders or small insects have been
known to create “flashback” problems. The spiders spin webs, build
nests and lay eggs in the grill’s venturi tube(s) obstructing the flow of
gas to the burner. The backed-up gas can ignite in the venturi behind
the control panel. This is known as a flashback and it can damage
your grill and even cause injury.
NOTE: Removal/Detachment method will depend on the
burner configuration. See different configurations in
illustrations below.
5. Carefully lift each burner up and away from valve openings.
We suggest three ways to clean the burner tubes. Use the one
easiest for you.
(A) Bend a stiff wire (a light weight coat hanger works well)
into a small hook. Run the hook through each burner
tube several times.
(B) Use a narrow bottle brush with a flexible handle (do not
use a brass wire brush), run the brush through each
burner tube several times.
(C) Wear eye protection: Use an air hose to force air into
the burner tube and out the burner ports. Check each
port to make sure air comes out each hole.
6. Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove food
residue and dirt.
7. Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an open
paper clip.
8. Check burner for damage, due to normal wear and corrosion
some holes may become enlarged. If any large cracks or
holes are found replace burner.
VERY IMPORTANT: Burner tubes must reengage valve
openings. See illustrations at right.
