DANGER
WARNING
WARNING
FOR YOUR SAFETY
FOR YOUR SAFETY
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, immediately
call your gas supplier or your fire
department.
If not installed, operated and maintained in
accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions,
this product could expose you to substances in
fuel or fuel combustion which can cause death or
serious illness and which are known to cause
cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
For example, benzene is a chemical which is
part of the gas supplied to the cooking
product. It is consumed in the flame during
combustion. However, exposure to a small
amount of benzene is possible if a gas leak
occurs. Formaldehyde and soot are byproducts of incomplete combustion. Properly
adjusted burners with a bluish rather than
yellow flame minimize incomplete combustion.
WARNING
FOR YOUR SAFETY
1. Do not store or use gasoline or
other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or
any other appliance.
2. Any LP cylinder not connected
for use shall not be stored in the
vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
WARNING
This outdoor gas grill is not intended to be
installed in or on recreational vehicles and/or boats.

General Information
• Keep grill area clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline, and other
flammable vapors.
Built-In Information
WARNING
If the following instructions are not followed
exactly, a fire causing death or serious injury
may occur:
o Do not store a spare LP gas cylinder under
or near this appliance.
o Never fill the cylinder beyond 80 percent
full.
• When the outdoor grill is not in use, the
gas supply must be turned off at the LP
gas supply cylinder.
• The pressure regulator and hose assembly
supplied with the outdoor grill must be
used. Replacement pressure regulators and
hose assemblies must be those specified
by the manufacturer.
WARNING
DANGER
• Finding a leak is not a “do-it-yourself”
procedure. Some leaks can only be found
with the burner control in the on position
and this must be done by a qualified
technician.
This outdoor gas grill is not intended to be
installed in or on recreational vehicles and/or
boats.
WARNING
• The LP supply cylinder to be used must be
constructed and marked in accordance
with the specifications for LP- gas cylinders
of the U.S. Department of Transportation
(DOT) or the National Standard of Canada,
CAN/CSA- B339, Cylinders, Spheres, and
Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous
Goods.
Keep electrical supply cord and the fuel supply
hose away from heated surfaces.
DANGER
CAUTION
WARNING
This appliance is not fused. Installer must install
a ground fault interrupt.
• Gas Manifold Pressure–
Natural gas - 4.0” W.C.P.
LP/Propane - 10.0” W.C.P.
DANGER
CAUTION
DANGER
FOR YOUR SAFETY
CAUTION
• A minimum of 6” (15.2 cm) from the sides,
or a minimum of 8” (20.3 cm) from the
right side if there is a rotisserie motor and
a minimum of 24” (61.0 cm) from the back
must be maintained from the grill above
the cooking surface to adjacent vertical
combustible construction. The grill is not
to be located under overhead unprotected
combustible construction.
T-Series Grills:
• When using a rear wall, locate the
electrical service on the right hand side for
the rotisserie motor. The rotisserie motor
requires a 110/120 volt supply. The power
supply cord on the motor is equipped with
a 3-prong (grounded) plug for protection
against shock hazard. Do not cut or
remove the grounding from the plug. The
electrical service must be equipped with a
properly grounded 3-prong receptacle as
required by the National Electrical Code
ANSI/NFPA 70-latest edition. Installation in
Canada must be in accordance with the
Canadian Electrical Code, CSA 22.1 and
local codes.
• A minimum of 3” (7.6 cm) clearance from
the back of the grill with a canopy and a
minimum of 6” (15.2 cm) from the back of
the grill without a canopy to noncombustible construction is required for
the purpose of allowing the lid to open
fully and for proper ventilation.
E-Series Grills:
• When using a rear wall, locate a 110/120
volt supply outlet on the bottom left hand
side beneath the solid bottom support at a
maximum distance of 2 feet. This
connection is to be used for the ignition
system and canopy lights. In addition, the
rotisserie motor requires a separate
110/120 volt supply to be located on the
right hand side of the grill. Both the power
supply cords for the ignition/lights and the
rotisserie motor are equipped with a 3prong (grounded) plug for protection
against shock hazard. Do not cut or
remove the grounding from the plug. The
electrical service must be equipped with a
properly grounded 3-prong receptacle as
required by the National Electrical Code
ANSI/NFPA 70-latest edition. Installation in
Canada must be in accordance with the
Canadian Electrical Code, CSA 22.1 and
local codes.
• Note that the grill exhausts combustion
products and cooking greases to the back.
Never locate the grill in a location where
the exhaust is directed at a window, less
than 24” (61.0 cm) to combustible material
or any surface that is difficult to clean.
• It is desirable to allow at least 6” side
clearance to non-combustible construction
above the cooking surface for counter
space. If using the rotisserie option, the
space is essential for motor and skewer
clearance. The grill can be placed directly
adjacent to combustible and/or noncombustible construction below the
cooking surface.
• When determining a suitable location for
the grill, take into account concerns such
as exposure to wind, proximity to traffic
paths and keeping gas supply lines as
short as possible. Locate the grill only in a
well-ventilated area. Never locate the grill
in a building, garage, shed or other such
fully enclosed areas. During heavy use, the
grill will produce a lot of smoke. Ensure
there is adequate area for it to dissipate.
IMPORTANT: Gas fittings, regulator, and
installer supplied shut-off valve must be
easily accessible.

LP/Propane Tank Connection
A dented or rusty LP/Propane tank may be
hazardous and should be checked by your
tank supplier. Never use a cylinder with a
damaged valve. All tanks should be equipped
with an OPD (overfilling protection
device). This is a DOT requirement for all
tanks purchased after October 1, 1998 and
will ensure that the tank is not overfilled. The
LP/Propane tank should be a standard 5-gal,
20 lb. gas cylinder tank approximately 12” in
diameter and 18” high which must be
constructed and marked in accordance with
the Specifications for LP/Propane Gas
Cylinders of the U.S. Department of
Transportation (D.O.T.) or the National
Standard of Canada, CAN/CSA-B339,
Cylinders,
Spheres
and
Tubes
for
Transportation of Dangerous Goods; and
Commission. The cylinder connection device
must be compatible with the Type 1, QCC-1
connector on the outdoor cooking appliance.
Outdoor grills orificed for use with
LP/Propane gas come equipped with a high
capacity hose/regulator assembly for
connection to a standard 20 lb. LP/Propane
cylinder equipped with a Type 1, QCC-1
connector. Hose assembly must comply with
Elastomeric Composite Hose and Couplings
for conducting Propane and Natural Gas,
CAN/CGA-8.1 standard or the Theromplastic

BUILT-IN INSTALLATIONS
Built-in installations must be plumbed using a
fixed/hard line if the unit is going to be
operated at a distance exceeding 3 feet (0.91
meters) from the fuel supply per ANSI Z21.24
CSA. Also, in a built-in construction where an
LP/Propane tank is going to be used, there
MUST be some type of support (braces, cutout, etc.) to prevent tank from moving within
the installation. The support must also allow
the LP/Propane tank to withstand a horizontal
tipping force equal to the weight of the tank
without tipping over. The tank can not tip
over or deflect more than 1.00 inch when a 38
lb. horizontal force is applied to a 20 lb.
LP/Propane tank.
All LP/Propane tanks must be mounted in a
vertical position for proper ventilation. The
cylinder must be provided with a shut-off
valve terminating in an LP/Propane gas
supply cylinder valve outlet specified. The
cylinder supply system must be arranged for
vapor withdrawal and provided with a listed
overfilling prevention device. If the appliance
is stored indoors the cylinder must be
disconnected and removed from the
appliance. Each tank is supplied with a dust
cap. Place dust cap on cylinder valve outlet
whenever the cylinder is not in use. Only
install the type of dust cap on the cylinder
connector to the LP/Propane tank. Open the
tank valve and check the connection between
the regulator and the Type 1, QCC-1 fitting
for leaks with a soapy water solution. If
bubbles appear, tighten the connection.

• Some stainless steel parts may have a
plastic protective wrap which must be
peeled off. The interior should be washed
thoroughly with hot, soapy water to
remove film residues and any dust or
debris before being used, then rinsed and
wiped dry. Solutions stronger than soap
and water are rarely needed.
If it is necessary to scrape stainless steel to
remove encrusted materials, soak with hot,
wet cloths to loosen the material, then use
a wool or nylon scraper. Do not use a
metal knife, spatula, or any other material
tool to scrape stainless steel! Scratches are
almost impossible to remove.
• All stainless steel body parts should be
wiped with hot, soapy water and with a
liquid cleaner designed for this material.
If buildup occurs, do not use steel wool,
abrasive cloths, cleansers, or powders!
