Safety Symbols
The symbols and boxes shown below explain what each heading
means. Read and follow all of the messages found throughout
the manual.
WARNING
WARNING: Indicates an potentially hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.
USE AND CARE
Natural Gas Connections and Service Regulators
Above 1/2 psi.
Prior to 1998, all residual gas service regulators were
set with an outlet pressure of 7 inches water column.
In the 1998 edition of NFPA 54, the National Fuel Gas
Code, a change was made allowing service regulators
of 2 and 5 psi.
With this change it was also required that an in line
regulator be connected between the service regulator
and the appliance regulator if the 2 or 5 psi system is
used. This additional regulator is not supplied with the
product.
It is possible for a consumer, making the connection
themselves, or a plumber, not checking, to tap into a 2
or 5 psi line. If a pressure of 2 psi or greater is supplied
to the appliance regulator on certain grills it will shut
down and not deliver any gas to the grill. Other
concerns are the quick disconnect socket and hose
which are only rated to 1/2 psi.
If the quick disconnect socket, hose, and grill are
properly connected and still not getting gas, delivery
pressure needs to be verified. If pressure is greater
than 1/2 psi, make sure that an in line regulator is
present.
Once the grill has been over-pressured, the regulator
may or may not have been damaged. The best practice
is to replace the regulator.
CAUTION:
Read and follow all safety statements, assembly
instructions, and use and care directions before attempting
to assemble and cook.
INSTALLER/ASSEMBLER:

10:00 am-4:00 pm .
How To Tell If Meat Is Grilled Thoroughly
Meat and poultry cooked on a grill often browns very fast on the
outside. Use a meat thermometer to be sure food has reached a
safe internal temperature, and cut into food to check for visual
signs of doneness.
o
Whole poultry should reach 165 F. Juices should run clear and
flesh should not be pink.
o
If you smell gas:
1. Shut off gas to the appliance.
2. Extinguish any open flame.
3. Open lid.
4. If odor continues, keep away from the
appliance and immediately call your gas
supplier or your fire department.
CAUTION
Hamburgers made of any ground meat or poultry should reach
160 F, and be brown in the middle with no pink juices. Beef,
o
veal and lamb steaks, roast and chops can be cooked to 145 F.
o
All cuts of pork should reach 160 F.
NEVER partially grill meat or poultry and finish cooking later.
Cook food completely to destroy harmful bacteria.
When reheating takeout foods or fully cooked meats like hot
o
dogs, grill to 165 F, or until steaming hot.

2. Be sure gas hose is tightly connected to gas source.
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 tubes(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.
3. Completely open gas source. If you hear a rushing sound, turn
gas off immediately. There is a major leak at the connection.
Correct before proceeding.
To prevent flashbacks and ensure good performance the burner and
venturi assembly should be removed from the grill and cleaned before
use whenever the grill has been idle for an extended period.
Leak Testing
1. Turn all grill control knobs to OFF.
4. Brush soapy solution onto area circled below.
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.
9
General Grill Cleaning(con’t.)
Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry. 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 non-abrasive scouring powder
of stubborn stains.
Painted surfaces: Wash with mild detergent or non-abrasive
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. Baker-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.
Cleaning the Burner Assembly
Follow these instructions to clean and/or replace parts of burner
assembly or if you have trouble igniting grill.
1. Turn gas OFF at control knobs and LP cylinder.
2. Remove grease tray from back of grill.
3. Open doors, remove tank heat shield and grease pan from
underneath the firebox.
4. Remove screws that hold orifice holder with the burner tube.
Figure A.
5. Remove cooking grates and radiator plates.
6. Remove hitch pin from front of the burner to disengage it.
Figure B.
7. Carefully lift up the burner enough to expose the electrode wire.
Detach wire from electrode underneath the burner.
8. Carefully take out the burner to clean. Figure C.
9. While cleaning, make sure that the ignitor wire is not bent or
broken.
A
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.
10. Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove food
residue and dirt.
11. Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an open paper
clip.
12. 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 be properly connected to
Correct
orifice holders.

13. After cleaning put the burner back into the firebox and attach the
electrode wire onto the electrode connector under the burner.
14. Place burner into position and reinstall the hitch pin.
15. Under the firebox, attach the orifice holder with the burner tube
with the screws previously removed.
16. Replace the grease pan, tank heat shield, grease tray, radiator
plate and cooking grates.

Storing Your Grill
-Clean cooking grates.
-Store in a dry location.
-When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors in a
well-ventilated space and out of reach of children.
-Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of grill
covers offered by manufacturer.
-Store grill indoors ONLY if LP cylinder is turned off and
disconnected, removed from grill and stored outdoors.
-When removing grill from storage, follow “Cleaning the
Burner Assembly” instructions before starting grill.
This unit should be hard plumbed using components that
meet National Fuel Gas Code.
WARNING
Do not use flexible gas hose supplied for Drop-in Models.
4. When the quick disconnect socket and the gas hose are connected,
a valve in the socket opens automatically to permit full gas flow.
When the gas hose is disconnected, the valve in the socket instantly
and positively shuts off the flow of gas. Because the valve in the
socket positively shuts off the flow of gas, the grill can be
disconnected from the gas source by disconnecting the gas hose
from the quick disconnect socket. The socket should be left attached
to the gas source (house piping). Figure C, below, shows properly
connected hose and socket.
Connecting Your Grill to the Natural Gas Source.
1. A professionally-installed shut-off valve between the supply piping
and the socket is recommended, but not required, by the National
Fuel Gas Code. Socket connection must be made outdoors.
2. Coat the gas supply pipe nipple with gas resistant pipe dope or
approved teflon tape. Screw socket onto gas supply pipe (house gas
source) as shown in Figure A below, and wrench-tighten.
CAUTION
Figure C
The quick disconnect socket should never be connected
to the grill. Direction of gas flow is indicated on the
socket.
Quick disconnect socket
House piping
With proper assembly, the gas hose cannot be removed without
pushing the quick disconnect sleeve back. To disconnect, push
sleeve back and pull plug out of sleeve (this automatically shuts off
gas).
Please Note: Hose and assembly are C.S.A. listed for natural gas,
manufactured gas, mixed gas and for liquefied petroleum and for
LP Gas-Air mixtures on basis of 0.64 specific gravity for 1000
BTU’s per cubic foot of gas at 0.3 in. water column pressure drop.
Only ANSI Z21.54 approved hoses should be used with this grill.
Figure A
3. Pull back the sleeve on the quick disconnect socket and insert the
unattached end of the gas hose into the socket. Release the sleeve
and continue pushing the hose into the socket until the sleeve snaps
into the locked position. See Figure B.
Gas hose
The appliance and its individual shut off valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing on that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2
psig (3.5kPa).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system
by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to
or less than 1/2 psi (3.5kPa).
Sleeve
WARNING
Figure B
Do not use hard metal piping of any kind to connect this
type of grill to natural gas source. Use only hose
specified by manufacturer. Using hard metal piping or
convoluted metal tubing is an unsafe practice. Movement
of the grill can cause breakage of metal pipe.
