With proper assembly, plug cannot be removed without
pushing sleeve back. To disconnect, push sleeve back and pull plug
out of sleeve (this automatically shuts off gas).
Use and Care
Connecting Your Grill to the
Natural Gas Source
IMPORTANT: Regulator supplied with grill MUST be
utilized for natural gas connection.
1. Coat pipe nipple with gas resistant dope. Screw socket onto gas
manifold at gas source (A).
2. Connect unattached end of natural gas hose to socket. Push sleeve
back on socket (B) and insert plug until sleeve snaps forward, locking
plug into socket.
When socket and plug are connected, valve in socket opens automatically to permit full gas flow. When coupling is disconnected, valve in
socket instantly and positively shuts off flow of gas. Because valve in
socket positively shuts off flow of gas, grill can be disconnected from gas
source by disconnecting hose from socket. Socket can be left on
manifold of gas source if so desired.
Please Note: Hose and assembly are A.G.A. certified and C.G.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.
The appliance and its individual shut off 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 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 (3.5 kPa).
WARNING
WARNING
• Connection to gas source must be done by a
certified plumber.

• Do not use hard metal piping of any kind to
connect this type of grill to natural gas source. Use
ONLY hose specified by Char-Broil. Using hard
metal piping or convoluted metal tubing is an
unsafe practice. Movement of the grill can cause
breakage of metal pipe.

off at gas source and call natural gas supplier or
your fire department!
Leak Testing
1. Turn all grill control knobs to OFF.
2. Check to make sure grill is connected to natural gas source
and gas supply is turned on. If you hear a rushing sound, turn

source.
▲ Never move grill while in operation or still hot.
▲ When moving the grill push it forward, do not pull from
behind.
▲ Use long-handled barbecue utensils to avoid burns and
splatters.
▲ Do not remove grease receptacle or tray until grill has
completely cooled.
▲ If you notice grease or other hot material dripping from grill
onto valve or regulator turn off gas supply at once. Determine
the cause, correct, clean and inspect valve and regulator
before continuing. Perform a leak test.
▲ The regulator may make a humming or whistling noise
during operation. This will not affect safety or use of grill.
▲ If you have a grill problem see the "Troubleshooting Section".
3. Brush soapy solution onto following connections:

4. "If growing" bubbles appear, there is a leak. Turn gas off at
gas source immediately and retighten connections. If leaks
cannot be stopped "do not try to repair." Call for
replacement parts. Order new parts by giving the serial,
model number and name of items needed to the Grill Service
Center at !1-800-241-7548.
Do not let children operate or play near grill.
Keep grill area clear and free from materials that burn.
Do not block holes in bottom or back of grill.
Check burner flames regularly.
Use grill only in well-ventilated space. NEVER use in
enclosed space such as carport, garage, porch, covered
patio, or under a surface that can catch fire.
• Use grill at least 3 ft. from any wall or surface. Maintain 10 ft.
clearance to objects that can catch fire or sources of ignition
such as pilot lights on water heaters, live electrical
appliances, etc.
• Do not use charcoal, briquets or lava rock in this grill.
• Apartment Dwellers:
Check with management to learn the requirements and
fire codes for using an Gas Grill in an apartment. If
allowed use outside on the ground floor with a three (3)
foot clearance from walls or rails. Do not use on or under

position than seen on HI. Always check flame prior to each
use. If only low flame is seen refer to "Sudden drop or low
flame" in the Troubleshooting Section.
HI
LOW
Turning Grill Off
• Turn all knobs to OFF position. Turn gas OFF at gas source.
Ignitor Check
• Turn gas off at gas source. Push and hold electronic
ignitor button. "Clicks" should be heard and spark seen each
time between collector box or burner and electrode. See
"Troubleshooting" if no click or spark.
Valve Check
• Important: Make sure gas is OFF at gas source before
checking valves. Knobs lock in OFF position. To check
valves, first push in knobs and release, knobs should spring
back. If knobs don't spring back, replace valve assembly
before using grill. Turn knobs to LOW position then turn back

UTION
CAUTION
Clean burners prior to use after storing, at the
beginning of grilling season or a period of
one month not being used. Spiders and insects like to
build nests in burner tubes (especially during colder
months). These nests can cause fires in burner tubes or
under grill.
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
and burner 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 and burner 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.
5. Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove food
residue and dirt.
6. Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an open paper
clip.
7. 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.
8. Carefully replace burners.
9. Replace cotter pin beneath each burner.
10. Replace grease tray and receptacle, flametamers, and
cooking grates.
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 to 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.
▲ 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 highquality appearance, wash with mild detergent and warm
soapy water, wipe dry with a soft cloth after each use. Bakedon grease deposits may require the use of an abrasive plastic
cleaning pad.
Storing Your Grill
• Clean cooking grates
• Store in dry location.
• Cover grill if stored outdoors. Choose from a variety of grill
covers offered by Char-Broil.
• Store grill indoors ONLY if gas source is disconnected.
• When removing grill from storage follow "Cleaning the Burner
Assembly" instructions before starting grill.

Indirect Cooking
Food Safety
Poultry and large cuts of meat cook slowly to perfection on the
grill by indirect heat. The heat from selected burners circulates
gently throughout the grill, cooking meat or poultry without the
touch of a direct flame. This method greatly reduces flare-ups
when cooking extra fatty cuts because there is no direct flame to
ignite the fats and juices that drip during cooking.
• Food safety is a very important part of enjoying the outdoor
cooking experience. To keep food safe from harmful
bacteria, follow these four basic steps:
Indirect Cooking Instructions
•
•
Always cook with the lid closed.
Due to weather conditions, cooking times may vary. During
cold and windy conditions the temperature setting may
need to be increased to insure sufficient cooking
temperatures.
Clean: Wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with hot soapy
water before and after handling raw meat and poultry.
Separate: Separate raw meats and poultry from ready-to-eat
foods to avoid cross contamination. Use a clean platter and
utensils when removing cooked foods.
Cook: Cook meat and poultry thoroughly to kill bacteria. Use a
thermometer to ensure proper internal food temperatures.
Chill: Refrigerate prepared foods and leftovers promptly.

• 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.
• Whole poultry should reach 1800 F; breasts, 1700 F. Juices
should run clear and flesh should not be pink.
• Hamburgers made of any ground meat or poultry should
reach 1600 F, and be brown in the middle with no pink juices.
Beef, veal and lamb steaks, roasts and chops can be cooked
to 1450 F. All cuts of pork should reach 1600 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
dogs, grill to 1650 F, or until steaming hot.
