safety precautions provided in this manual are followed.
Failure to follow these safety precautions could result in a
fire or explosion causing property damage or personal injury.
Propane gas cylinders should always be handled, stored, and
transported with extreme caution in a secured upright position.
Never attempt to use or repair a propane gas cylinder that has been
damaged. Never attempt to use or repair a cylinder with a faulty or
damaged valve outlet. A cylinder that has been dropped, dented,
or otherwise damaged must be replaced.
A propane gas cylinder should never be transported in the passenger area of a vehicle.
Keep cylinders out of direct sunlight and never apply any other
source of direct heat to them.

Installation Code, or CAN/CGA-B149.1 Natural Gas Installation
Code, and local codes where applicable. Consult your local gas
supplier or propane gas dealer for code regulations and recommended procedures.
Warning: Broilmaster® Premium Gas Grills require Liquid
Propane (LP) cylinders equipped with an Overfill Protection
Device (OPD). An overfilled or improperly filled Propane cylinder can be dangerous.
Always use the pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied
with your Propane gas grill.
Note: Not all valve and cylinder combinations are compatible.
Check warning tag on valve and cylinder as well as external fitting
threads.
All Broilmaster® pressure regulators and hose assemblies require
Propane cylinders with a Type 1 connection device as illustrated.
See Figure 1.
When refilling your cylinder, always insist on a reputable, qualified
gas dealer. Your propane gas cylinder is filled by weight, and should
never exceed eighty percent (80%) of its weight limit. If the cylinder is not completely empty, the gas dealer must make necessary
adjustments to ensure it is not overfilled. Never use an overfilled
Propane gas cylinder.
Cylinder Storage
Your grill must be stored outdoors in a well ventilated area if the
cylinder is attached to it.
Disconnected cylinders must have a threaded valve plug tightly
installed and must not be stored in any building, garage, or other
enclosed area.
Flammable materials (gasoline, grill covers, etc.) must not be stored
in the cylinder enclosure.
Always store Propane cylinders in a secured upright position, out
of the reach of children.
Connection Requirements

briquets evenly on the briquette rack without overlapping. See
Figures 20a and 20b.
For Smoker Shutter installation see DPA100 manual included with
your P3SX grill.
Set the multilevel cooking grids. See Figures 21a and 21b.
Installing Char-Master Briquets
Individually place the ‘Char-Master’ briquets in a single layer evenly
on your grill’s briquet rack; DO NOT dump them onto the briquet
rack. A single layer of ‘Char-Master’ briquets is all that’s needed.
DO NOT overlap or stack the briquets.
See Figure 21b.
Figure 21a
After properly placing the ‘Char-Master’ briquets on your grill’s
briquet rack, there may be some briquets left over. Save them for
future use.
Before cooking, always preheat the grill as directed by the grill’s
operating instructions. Hot briquets cause better, quicker cooking
and better flavor.
Cleaning
Routine preheating and routine burn-off (also called post-heating)
of a grill will clean the ‘Char-Master’ briquets. Periodically turn the
briquets over while they are cool.
Note for H3 Package Owners: The side shelf must be installed
before installing the Briquets and Briquet Rack.

OPERATION - PROPANE & NATURAL GAS GRILLS
Checking for Gas Leaks
Check for gas leaks every time you connect your Broilmaster propane gas grill to a Propane gas cylinder, when a connected cylinder
has not been used recently, or when either a natural or propane grill
is being used for the first time.
®
Caution: Do not use an open flame when checking for leaks.
Checking for leaks with an open flame may lead to a fire or
explosion, resulting in property damage or personal injury.
To check for gas leaks:
1. Use dish washing liquid and a little water to make a soapy solution.
2. Turn OFF the knob on the control panel.
3. Turn ON the gas at the supply or cylinder. A hissing sound
indicates a leak. Turn OFF the gas and repair the leak.
4. Apply the soapy water solution to all gas connections.
5. Look for bubbles. Bubbles indicate a leak.
6. If there are bubbles turn OFF the gas and repair the leak.
7. Turn the gas back ON and repeat the above procedures until
all leaks are repaired.
Air Shutter Adjustment
The venturi air shutter(s) are preset at the factory so that after five
minutes the burner flames are blue with well defined cones. If,
after five minutes the flame is yellow, or there is a gap between
the burner and the flame, adjust the venturi air shutter as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Turn gas OFF and let the burner cool.
Loosen shutter set screw
Close the air shutter to the minimum opening.
Light the burner, wait five minutes and then carefully open the
air shutter until the flame is blue and well defined.
5. Retighten the set screw.

OPERATION
Before Cooking
Before cooking on a grill for the first time, it should be broken in to
burn off any oil residue from the manufacturing process.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Raise the grill lid.
Light grill burner.
Burn on HI for ten minutes.
Close the lid and burn on HI for an additional ten minutes.
Turn OFF gas. The grill is now ready for use.
Preheating
Before cooking on a gas grill, allow the grill to preheat on HI for 5
minutes with the lid closed.
This uses very little fuel and provides better flavor.
Electrical Accessories
If an electrical accessory (e.g. rotisserie) is used on your grill, the
accessory must be electrically grounded in accordance with local
codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Electric
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70. In Canada, the electrical accessory must
be electrically grounded in accordance with the applicable section
of the current Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
Any electrical accessory should be equipped with a three-prong
(grounding) plug, and plugged into a properly grounded three-prong
receptacle or wall outlet. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong
from the plug.
If an extension cord is required, use only a three-prong cord and
plug into a properly grounded receptacle as described above.
Do not expose an electrical accessory to water. Avoid using any
electrical accessory in wet weather as it may present a shock
hazard.
Keep any electrical cord and fuel supply hose away from all heated
surfaces.

B101623-5-1012
MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the Grill
Caution: To prevent injury, use care when cleaning a hot grill.
Note: Do not use a commercial cleaner on the cooking grid.
Do not brush grids while they are hot. Do not scrape grids.
For baked on residue use a brass (NOT STEEL) brush on the
cooking grid and other components.
Burn Off
This process is much like that used in self-cleaning ovens and is
most efficient when completed after each use of the grill.
Caution: Do not open the grill during the burn off process.
Opening the grill during the burn off process may cause a
sudden grease fire flare up that could burn your face and arms.
Wait until the grill has cooled before opening.
1. Turn gas knob to HI. Close lid and allow the grill to burn for ten
minutes, or until no smoke is present. Do not allow the grill to
burn for more than 30 minutes.
Venturi Tubes
The venturi tubes allow air and gas to mix prior to burning, thus
ensuring an efficient flame. Spiders or other small insects may
build webs or nests inside the tubes obstructing air flow. Fire, or
flashback, can occur, in and/or around obstructed venturi tubes
and can cause damage to components beneath the grill or an
unsafe condition. To reduce risk, inspections and cleaning should
be performed at least twice monthly when spiders are active. If the
grill has been unused for an extended period of time inspect the
tubes before using the grill.
Clean venturi tubes as follows:
1. Remove the cooking grids and briquette rack.
2. Remove the burner from the grill.
3. Lay the burner face down and remove the four retaining screws
from the venturi tube plate and the burner. See Figure 23.
4. Use a small flexible brush to remove any debris for the tube(s).
5. Flush with water.
6. Allow the tube(s) to dry before reinstalling.
7. Reinstall the venturi tubes and burner.
2. Turn gas knob and supply to OFF and allow the grill to cool.
3. Wipe COOL grill with a damp cloth to remove soot.
Grill Bottom
Periodically remove cooking grids and flare guard to clean the
interior of the grill. Scrape off baked on residue with a putty knife
or brass brush and rinse with water. Clean the bottom air holes
with a small knife.
Burner Maintenance
Stainless steel burners often turn reddish brown after use. This does
not effect the performance of the grill. When cleaning the interior of
the grill, remove the burners and clean with a brass brush. Wash
with water and a mild detergent.
Grease Cup
Empty periodically.
Figure 23
Note: Bowtie burner is shown. Follow the same steps for the
H burner assembly.
Exterior
Clean regularly with a solution of mild detergent and hot water.
Touch-up paint is available from your dealer. Broilmaster® protective covers are recommended. Stainless steel components can
be easily cleaned with a spray-on stainless steel cleaner found in
most hardware stores.
Briquettes
If the briquettes did not come clean during burn off, after cooling turn
them over. The residue will burn off during warm-up for the next use.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Safety Practices to Avoid Personal Injury
When properly cared for your Broilmaster Infrared Grill will give
safe, reliable service for many years. However, extreme care must
be used since the grill produces intense heat, which can increase
accident potential. When using this appliance, basic safety practices must be followed, including the following:
Read this Installation Instructions and Owner's Manual carefully and completely before using your grill to reduce the risk
of fire, burn hazard or other injury.
Begin by ensuring proper assembly.
Do not repair or replace any part of the grill unless specifically
recommended in this manual. All other service should be referred
to a qualified technician.
Clean the grill with caution. Avoid steam burns; do not use a wet
sponge or cloth to clean the grill while it is hot. Some cleaners
produce noxious fumes or can ignite if applied to a hot surface.
Insect Warning - Spiders and insects can nest in the burners
of this and any other grill, and cause the gas to flow from the front
of the burner. This is a very dangerous condition, which can cause
a fire to occur behind the valve panel, thereby damaging the grill
and making it unsafe to operate. Inspect the grill at least twice per
year.
Be sure all grill controls are turned off and the grill is cool before
using any type of aerosol cleaner on or around the grill. The chemical that produces the spraying action could, in the presence of
heat, ignite or cause metal parts to corrode. Do not operate the
grill under unprotected combustible construction. Use only in well
ventilated areas. Do not use in buildings, garages, sheds, breezeways or any enclosed areas.
For personal safety, wear proper apparel. Loose fitting garments
or sleeves should never be worn while using this appliance. Some
synthetic fabrics are highly flammable and should not be worn
while cooking. Never let clothing, pot holders or other flammable
materials come in contact with or too close to any grate, burner
or hot surface until it has cooled. Fabric may ignite and result in
personal injury.
Keep the area surrounding the grill free from combustible materials, trash, or combustible fluids and vapors such as gasoline or
charcoal lighter fluid. Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and
ventilation air. Keep the back of the cart free and clear from debris.
Use only dry pot holders: moist or damp pot holders on hot surfaces may cause burns from steam. Do not use a towel or bulky
cloth in place of pot holders. Do not let pot holders touch hot portions of the grilling grids.
Never use the grill in windy conditions. If located in a consistently
windy area (oceanfront, mountain top, etc) a windbreak will be required. Always adhere to the specified clearance.
Only certain types of glass, heat-proof glass ceramic, earthenware, or other glazed utensils are suitable for grill use. Use of these
types of materials may break with sudden temperature changes.
Grease is flammable. Let hot grease cool before attempting to
handle it. Avoid letting grease deposits collect in the bottom of the
grill. Clean often.
Do not use aluminum foil to line the grilling grids or grill bottom.
This can severely upset combustion airflow or trap excessive heat
in the control area. The result of this can be melted knobs, igniters
and increased chance of personal injury. The drip tray accessory
may be lined with aluminum foil.
If the unit is stored indoors ensure that it is cool. If propane is used,
the cylinder must be unhooked and the propane cylinder stored
outside in a well-ventilated area, out of reach of children.
Keep any electrical supply cord, or the optional rotisserie motor
cord away from the heated areas of the grill. Do not use the grill
for cooking excessively fatty meats or products, which promote
flare-ups.
OUTDOOR USE ONLY
Your Broilmaster Infrared Grill is designed for outdoor use
only and must not be installed in or on recreational vehicles
and/or boats.
NEVER USE A DENTED OR RUSTY PROPANE TANK.
SHUT OFF TANK WHEN NOT IN USE.
Children should not be left alone or unattended in an area where
the grill is being used. Never allow them to sit, stand or play on or
around the grill at any time. Do not store items of interest to children around or below the grill or in the cart. Never allow children
to crawl inside of a cart.
Do not heat unopened food containers as a build-up of pressure
may cause the container to burst.
Use a covered hand when opening the grill lid. Never lean over
an open grill.
When lighting a burner, always pay close attention to what you
are doing. Be certain you are depressing the igniter button. When
using the grill: do not touch the grilling grids, burner, warming rack
or immediate surrounding area as these areas become extremely
hot and could cause burns.
For proper lighting and performance of the burners keep the ports
clean. The burners will only operate in one position and must be
mounted correctly for safe operation.

INFRARED COOKING
General Overview
Broilmaster Infrared gas grills make it possible for you to enjoy
cooking outdoors quickly and effortlessly. In minutes, you can enjoy steaks, hamburgers, poultry, pork chops, fish and other foods.
You can also cook more slowly if you wish. Broilmaster's optional
accessories are designed to enhance your grill's versatility.
Infrared Searing Method
Searing is a process that seals juices in food by cooking with intense heat for a short period of time. The juices stay in the food
where they belong and the outside gets coated with flavorful
smoke. For best results, follow these procedures when cooking.
Searing Method
1. Follow the Burner Ignition procedures and operate the grill for
5 minutes or until the burners glow uniformly.
2. Set the Burner Output Knob to HIGH and place the food on
the cooking grid for 1 - 2 minutes, or until food lifts without
sticking.
3. Turn the food and repeat Step 2.
4. Depending upon your taste, continue cooking on HIGH, turning the food frequently, or adjust the Burner Output Knob to
a setting between LOW and "medium" and continue cooking
until the food is cooked to your satisfaction. Turn as necessary (generally every one to three minutes).
not recommend cooking portion meats from a frozen state.
3. Start slowly. Infrared grilling is unlike other outdoor cooking
methods. It may take time to get used to the fast cooking process. As a benchmark, foods which generally cook in 20 minutes or less on conventional grills cook in about one-half the
conventional time on a Broilmaster infrared grill. Please refer
to the Infrared Cooking Sample Times on pages 43 and 44.
Indirect Cooking with a Broilmaster Infrared Grill
Indirect cooking is a slower process used to prepare large main
dishes - roasts, hams, turkeys, etc. Foods are placed on one side
of the grill and the other side is lighted to produce heat.
To protect the infrared burner from damage, place a heavy-duty disposable aluminum pan over the burner to catch drippings.
Note: Make sure the aluminum pan is the same size or larger than
the infrared burner. Any liquids that land on the burner while it is
not burning may cause it to break when ignited.
The pan may be filled part-way with liquid (water, marinade, etc.)
to enhance the moisture content of the meat, but take special care
not to spill anything onto the burner when adding liquids or when
removing the pan after cooking.
During the searing period, flashing might occur when juices vaporize on contact with the cooking grid and burner surfaces. The
flashes and smoke greatly enhance the flavor of food.
The intense infrared energy generated by your Broilmaster Grill has
other advantages. For example, food is evenly cooked throughout.
Also, upon contact with the cooking grids and burners, drippings
vaporize into flavorful smoke that cooks back into the food.
Flare-Up Control
NOTICE:
NEVER
DOUSE
A
FLARE-UP
WITH
LIQUID. IT WILL DAMAGE THE BURNER AND VOID THE WARRANTY!
To minimize flame flare-ups:
• Trim excess fat from meat.
• Reduce heat and reposition foods away from flare-ups when
the occur.
• Prevent excess grease build up by periodically cleaning cooking grids.
Helpful Hints
1. Use the proper tools. Long handled tongs, spatula, knife, and
mitts or a hot pad for handling hot items. When turning or
moving foods, use tongs or a spatula, instead of a fork. Piercing the food with a fork allows the natural juices and flavor to
escape.
2. Monitor meat temperature. Bring large cuts of meat, roasts,
or fowl to room temperature before cooking. Smaller meat
cuts such as hamburgers, hot dogs, or small steaks may be
cooked directly from the refrigerator. Note: Broilmaster does

OPERATION - PROPANE & NATURAL GAS GRILLS
Checking for Gas Leaks
Operating Instructions
Caution: Do not use an open flame when checking for leaks.
Checking for leaks with an open flame may lead to a fire or
explosion, resulting in property damage or personal injury.
Caution: If a burner fails to light after 5 seconds, turn the burner
OFF for 5 minutes, to allow the gas to clear, then try again.
Check for gas leaks every time you connect your Broilmaster propane gas grill to a Propane gas cylinder, when a connected cylinder
has not been used recently, or when either a natural or propane grill
is being used for the first time.
Before each use, inspect all hoses. If it is evident there is
excessive abrasion or wear, or the hose is cut, it must be
replaced prior to using your Broilmaster grill. Call your local Broilmaster dealer for a replacement.
Using the Ignitor
To check for gas leaks:
Note: Each burner must be lit individually.
1. Use dish washing liquid and a little water to make a soapy solution.
2. Turn OFF the knob on the control panel.
3. Turn ON the gas at the supply or cylinder. A hissing sound
indicates a leak. Turn OFF the gas and repair the leak.
4. Apply the soapy water solution to all gas connections.
5. Look for bubbles. Bubbles indicate a leak.
6. If there are bubbles turn OFF the gas and repair the leak.
7. Turn the gas back ON and repeat the above procedures until
all leaks are repaired.
1. Turn knob on the grill CLOCKWISE to the OFF position.
2. Turn ON gas at the source.
3. With the grill lid open, push and turn the burner control knob
COUNTERCLOCKWISE to Hi.
4. Push and hold the ignitor button until the burner lights (approximately 5 seconds).
5. If a burner does not light, turn OFF all gas and refer to the
Troubleshooting section of this manual.
6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 for other burner.
Air Shutter Adjustment For R3B Series
Only
The burner (venturi) tube air shutter is preset at the factory so
that after five minutes the burner flames are blue with well defined
cones. If, after five minutes the flame is yellow, or there is a gap
between the burner and the flame, adjust the burner (venturi) tube
air shutter as follows:
1. Turn gas OFF and let the burner cool.
2. Beneath the control panel you can access the air shutter(s)
which are located on the end of the burner tubes.
3. Loosen shutter set screw
4. Close the air shutter to the minimum opening.
5. Light the burner, wait five minutes and then carefully open the
air shutter until the flame is blue and well defined.
6. Retighten the set screw.
Using Matches to Light the Grill
Caution: If a burner fails to light after 5 seconds, turn the burner
OFF for 5 minutes, to allow the gas to clear, then try again.
Note: Each burner must be lit individually.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Turn knob on the grill CLOCKWISE to the OFF position.
Turn ON gas at the source.
Open the grill lid.
For Blue Flame grills, insert a burning long wooden match
through the lighter hole on the left side of the grill. For Infrared
grills, insert the lighting stick with a long wooden match attached
through the cooking grid to ignite the infrared burner from the
top. See Figure 38.

BLUE FLAME BURNER MAINTENANCE
Cleaning the Grill
Grease Tray
Caution: To prevent injury, do not clean a hot grill.
Note: Do not use a commercial cleaner on the cooking grids.
Do not brush grids while they are hot.
For baked on residue use a BRASS (NOT STEEL) brush on the
cooking grid and other components.
Burn Off
This process is much like that used in self-cleaning ovens and is
most efficient when completed after each use of the grill.
Caution: Do not open the grill during the burn off process.
Opening the grill during the burn off process may cause a
sudden grease fire flare up that could burn your face and arms.
Wait until the grill has cooled before opening.
1. Turn gas knob to HI. Close lid and allow the grill to burn for ten
minutes, or until no smoke is present. Do not allow the grill to
burn for more than 30 minutes.
2. Turn gas knob and supply to OFF and allow the grill to cool.
3. Wipe COOL grill with a damp cloth to remove soot.
Grill Bottom
Periodically remove cooking grids and Char-Master Briquets or
flavor screen to clean the interior of the grill. Scrape off baked on
residue with a putty knife or brass brush and rinse with water. Clean
the bottom air holes with a small knife.
Blue Flame Burner Maintenance
Visually inspect the burner flames with each use. Five minutes after
lighting, the flames should be blue and have well defined cones.
See Figure 40. See the troubleshooting section if the flames are
yellow or lift off the burner.
Stainless steel burners often turn reddish brown after use. This does
not effect the performance of the grill. When cleaning the interior of
the grill, remove the burners and clean with a brass brush. Wash
with water and a mild detergent.
Empty periodically. Replacement tray liners can be purchased at
most supermarkets where disposable aluminum baking pans are
displayed.
Burner (Venturi) Tubes
The burner (venturi) tubes allow air and gas to mix prior to burning,
thus ensuring an efficient flame. Spiders or other small insects may
build webs or nests inside the tubes obstructing air flow. Fire, or
flashback, can occur, in and/or around obstructed burner (venturi)
tubes and can cause damage to components beneath the grill or an
unsafe condition. To reduce risk, inspections and cleaning should
be performed at least twice monthly when spiders are active. If the
grill has been unused for an extended period of time inspect the
tubes before using the grill.
Clean burner (venturi) tubes as follows:
1. Remove the cooking grids and briquet rack (R3B only).
2. Remove the burner from the grill.
3. Use a small flexible brush to remove any debris from the burner
(venturi) tube.
4. Flush with water.
5. Allow the burner (venturi) tube to dry before reinstalling.
6. Reinstall the burner, briquet rack and briquets and cooking grids.
Exterior
Clean regularly with a solution of mild detergent and hot water.
Touch-up paint is available from your dealer. Broilmaster protective covers are recommended. Stainless steel components can
be easily cleaned with a spray-on stainless steel cleaner found in
most hardware stores.
Char-Master Briquets
If the briquets did not come clean during burn off, after cooling turn
them over. The residue will burn off during warm-up for the next use.

INFRARED BURNER MAINTENANCE
General Overview
Proper care, maintenance and cleaning will help ensure a long life
for your grill. Periodic cleaning will help avoid accumulations of
flammable grease and other debris.
Exterior
Clean regularly with a solution of mild detergent and hot water.
Touch-up paint is available from your dealer. Broilmaster protective covers are recommended. Stainless steel components can
be easily cleaned with a spray-on stainless steel cleaner found in
most hardware stores.
Protection of Burners
The burners of your grill are designed to provide a long life of
satisfactory performance. However, there are steps you must take
to prevent cracking of their ceramic surfaces, which will cause the
burners to malfunction. Following are the most common causes of
cracks and the steps you must take to avoid them. Damage caused
by failure to follow these steps is not covered by your grill warranty.
IMPACT WITH HARD OBJECTS - Never allow hard objects to
strike the ceramic. Take particular care when inserting or removing
the cooking grids and accessories into or from the grill. If objects
such as these fall onto the ceramic, it is likely to crack the ceramic.
IMPAIRED VENTILATION OF HOT AIR FROM THE GRILL - In order
for the burners to function properly, hot air created by the burners
must have a way to escape the grill. If the hot air is not allowed
to escape, the burners may become deprived of oxygen, causing
them to backfire, especially if the burner output is set at HIGH. If
this occurs repeatedly, the burners may crack. Never operate your
grill with very little or no open space at the cooking surface (the
cooking grids provide sufficient open space.
it to swell and expand. This expansion will create pressure on the
ceramic and cause it to crack and crumble.
To prevent burner damage caused by liquids, please do the following:
• Never throw liquid into the grill to control a flare-up.
• Never expose the burners to the risk of soaking by rainfall,
sprinklers or otherwise. We recommend that the grill be covered with a heavy duty vinyl cover at all times when it is not in
use. Do not attempt to operate your grill in the open air while
it is raining. Finally, using the grill, close the hood as soon as
the burners are off so that, if it rains, the burners will not be
exposed to direct rainfall while the grill is cooling.
• If standing water is in the grill (because of exposure to rainfall,
etc.) examine the ceramic burner surfaces for evidence of possible water soaking. If the ceramic appears to be wet, remove
the burners from the grill and turn them upside down to empty
any water from the burner box. After draining all the water, place
the burners indoors and allow to dry thoroughly. Also, empty
any water standing in the grill's drip tray. Then, reinstall the
burners. After testing for gas leaks around all fittings, resume
normal use of the grill.
Cleaning
CAUTION: ALWAYS ALLOW THE GRILL TO COOL BEFORE
CLEANING. DO NOT LET LIQUIDS COME IN CONTACT WITH
THE BURNER SURFACE AT ANY TIME.
Grease Tray
Empty periodically. Replacement tray liners can be purchased at
most supermarkets where disposable aluminum baking pans are
displayed.
Examples:
• DO NOT operate the grill on "HIGH" with the hood closed.
• DO NOT use accessories in combinations that cover more than
75% of the cooking surface with solid metal.
• DO NOT cover the entire surface with aluminum foil, a large
pan, etc.
WATER AND OTHER LIQUIDS - When the burners are in operation,
their intense heat is normally sufficient to vaporize any drippings,
marinates or sauces that contact the surface as a by-product of
grilling. This does not include water thrown into the grill to douse a
flame. Cold liquid contacting a hot surface in substantial amounts
can cause the surface to break. Also, if the ceramic or interior of a
burner becomes wet while not in use, later operation of the burner
can create steam, which may produce enough pressure to crack
the ceramic. In addition, repeated soaking of the ceramic will cause

INFRARED BURNER MAINTENANCE
Cooking Grids
Burn Off
This process is much like that used in self-cleaning ovens and is
most efficient when completed after each use of the grill.
Because of the high intensity of the Infrared burner, any drippings
and food particles that fall onto the burner surface are immediately
incinerated. However, some debris and residue may remain. To
remove this residue after cooking, turn the grill on HIGH for 5-10
minutes with the hood OPEN.
Standard Cleaning
The cooking grids may also be removed and cleaned with a brass
or stainless steel bristle brush and soapy solution. Standard oven
cleaners may be used for further cleaning. Rinse the cooking grids
thoroughly with clean water before using.
Maintenance
The Broilmaster requires very little maintenance. However, a
periodic inspection of orifice openings and venturi inlets to clear
obstructions to gas flow is recommended.
Burner Head
To maintain the performance of the Infrared burner it is important
to operate the grill on HIGH for at least 5 minutes after each use.
This procedure will leave some ash on the surface of the burner
head. If it accumulates in excessive amounts, it will clog the small
ports in the ceramic surface. To prevent this blockage, remove
the cooking grid and the burner screen, and vacuum the burner
surface with a low-suction vacuum cleaner every six months, or
as necessary. When completing this procedure be careful not to
scrape or strike the ceramic with the suction device, which may
damage the ceramic.
