Leak Testing Procedure
Installation / Assembly
Installing the Grill in a Barbecue
You may need a second person to help you to avoid damaging the grill or your barbecue island.
Before installing a grill in any island or cut out, make sure that the
opening is not bigger than the outside frame of the grill unit. The
grill should rest on the lip of the frame.
Pay careful attention to the location of the gas line. It should be
routed away from sources of heat and should make as few bends
as possible.
Check to see if the gas line connection will be accessible when the
grill is installed.
• If the gas line connection is not easily accessible when the grill
is installed, support the grill above counter level and attach the
gas line to the grill. When the gas connection is made, slide the
grill into the cut out.
• If the gas line connection is accessible when the grill is installed,
slide the grill into the cut out and then attach the gas line.
Be very careful not to kink the gas line when lowering the grill into
the cut out.
Keep your fingers away from where the grill will be supported on
counter. Your fingers could become trapped and serious injury could
Check to make sure the grill is level and is supported around the
entire outside edge. If the grill is not level or is unstable, use noncombustible shims under the outside lip to stabilize it.
Perform the leak test procedure as described earlier in this manual.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning and Maintenance
To ensure safe and proper maintenance, we recommend you
follow these directions carefully.
Clean internal parts of the grill regularly as determined by the
amount of use and foods cooked. The entire grill should be cleaned
at least once a year.
In addition, keep the area around your grill clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and
liquids. Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
These instructions describe the best way to care for your stainless
Although stainless steel grills will discolor and accumulate grime with
regular use, they can keep their original shine with periodic cleaning.
We strongly recommend using a surface protectant to prevent smudging and surface rust from accumulating.
The easiest way to clean the grill is immediately after cooking is completed. Doing so will extend the life of your grill, prevent grease fires,
and present a pleasant appearance while you grill.
Stainless Steel Care and Cleaning
All exposed stainless steel surfaces require special attention if you want
to keep them looking clean and bright. Following these simple instructions will help avoid scratching or damaging the finish and keep your
stainless steel attractive.
Hibachi Grill
LTR50001096, Rev. A
Oven cleaner
Cleansers such as Ajax or Comet
Steel wool pads
Wire brushes
We recommend these products for cleaning your stainless steel:
Mild dish detergent such as Dawn
Formula 409
Sheila Shine (exterior ONLY)
WD-40 (exterior ONLY)
We have had best success with Sheila Shine, but WD-40 works very
well too. Sheila Shine is available in some hardware stores; WD-40
is widely available.
Some people have reported that using baking soda, lemon oil, olive
oil, vinegar, or club soda can be effective for cleaning light soil on all
stainless steel surfaces.
Do not use steel wool or wire brushes to scrub your grill. For light
soil, use a damp sponge or cloth. For heavier stains, use a ScotchBrite scrubber or similar product.
Do not use WD-40 or Sheila Shine near food or on food
preparation surfaces as it is a health hazard. This includes
the interior of the grill, the griddle, stainless steel sinks,
Caution the inside of cabinets, warming drawers, and ovens.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning Products and Materials
Avoid using these common cleaning products and materials – they
will damage the surface of your stainless steel.
Cleaning and Maintenance
1. Clean
Thoroughly clean stains, food, and grime using a sponge or damp
cloth with warm water and a mild dish soap. Use Fantastik or Formula 409 to remove heavier soil.
2. Rinse
Thoroughly rinse all surfaces and dry them completely with a clean
towel. Do not allow stainless steel to air dry.
3. Polish
We strongly recommend that you apply a surface protectant to all
exposed stainless steel surfaces.
Spray a small amount of WD-40 or Sheila Shine on a piece of paper
towel and rub with the grain over the surface of the appliance. Using
a clean terry cloth or paper towel, polish the appliance by rubbing
with the grain until excess liquid is removed and the surface shines. It
should not be oily to the touch, however some residue is acceptable.
Some people have reported that using lemon oil products such as Old
English furniture polish is effective for polishing stainless steel and protecting the surface.
NEVER spray WD-40 or Sheila Shine near an open flame!
These products are extremely flammable while in their
aerosol forms.
To prevent burns or injury, make sure the griddle is completely cool
before cleaning.
The griddle is made from non-magnetic, 304 grade stainless steel.
There are various stainless steel cleaners available. Always use the
mildest cleaning procedure first, and always scrub in the direction of
the grain. Use soapy water for most cleaning. A non-abrasive scrubber
may also be helpful in removing grime and food deposits. Steel wool
may be used for especially difficult spots. Wipe all areas dry before
Do not use a wire brush or stainless steel on any other
part of your grill or any other stainless steel surface except the the griddle!
Hibachi Grill
LTR50001096, Rev. A
It is a common misconception that stainless steel does not rust. It does
not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as ordinary steel (it stains less),
but it is not stain-proof. If not properly protected and maintained, it
can corrode, pit, and discolor.
Because salt will accelerate rust and corrosion, grill
owners who live near the beach need to be diligent in
maintaining their stainless steel hardware. You need to
clean and polish your stainless steel frequently, apply
a protectant, and ensure water does not collect and
Periodically clean exterior stainless steel surfaces with WD-40 or Sheila
Shine and wipe down with a dry cloth or paper towel until surface is
free of rust. If there is significant rust or corrosion, use a Scotch-Brite
Both of these products will act as a surface protectant and help resist
smudges, stains, and rust.
Although nitric acid (also called aqua fortis) can be effective for rust removal, it is a highly corrosive chemical. Because of the potential for injury or damage to your stainCaution
less steel, we do not recommend using nitric acid.
Spiders and small insects occasionally inhabit or make nests in the
burner tubes, obstructing the gas flow. Sometimes this results in a
type of fire in and around the gas tubes called “flashback”. To reduce
the risk of flashback, this procedure should be followed at least once
a month or when your grill has not been used for an extended period
of time.
IMPORTANT: Prior to starting this procedure, turn OFF all of the gas
control knobs, shut off the fuel supply, and disconnect the fuel line.
The burners can be removed by removing the keeper pins and lifting
them out. The keeper pins are located under the grill toward the back.
They are used to keep the burners in place during shipping and are not
necessary to operate your grill. Remove burners from the grill by carefully lifting each burner up and away from the gas valve orifice.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Rust Removal
Cleaning and Maintenance
Use a wire brush to clean the outer surface of each burner to remove
food residue and dirt. Clean any clogged ports with a stiff wire such as
an opened paper clip.
Inspect each burner for damage (cracks and holes). If any damage is
found, replace the burner and discontinue grill usage.
Upon reinstallation, inspect the gas valve orifices for cleanliness and
condition and the location of the igniters. When you replace the burners, you do not need to replace the keeper pins.
Drip Pan
The full width drip pan will collect grease from the main grill area.
The pan should be cleaned after every use to avoid the possibility of a
grease fire. Be sure to allow the drip pan to cool prior to cleaning. You
may clean the drip pan with a solution of warm soapy water. Make sure
to rinse thoroughly to avoid staining.
Steam Cleaning Your Grill
Steam cleaning your grill is very effective and will not void your warranty. Portable hand-held steam cleaners are inexpensive and do not
require chemicals. You can steam clean all parts of your Cal Flame grill,
including the burners. When you are finished, make sure you wipe all
surfaces down.
If you spray the burners, ignite them and let them burn for about 10
minutes to prevent any water from accumulating inside them.
Covering Your Grill
When not in use and after cooling, cover your grill with our canvas
cover. (See your local Cal Flame dealer for details.) The cover will help
protect your grill from detrimental effects of weather and environmental pollutants. Never put a cover on a hot grill. Allow the grill to cool
before covering.

Removing and Replacing Burners
Smell of gas is present
Check for loose connections in the gas line. Perform a
leak test following the procedure described in this manual.
Burner does not ignite
Use the following procedure with the figure below.
Check the position of the sparker tip. It should be pointing forward towards the front of the burner.
Make sure there is a blue spark at the electrode tip
to the burner.
Make sure the igniter wire is connected firmly to the
valve ignition device and the electrode.
Make sure the valve orifice is free of any debris, dust
or grease.
Make sure the valve orifice is aligned inside the front
hole of the burner.
If there is no spark at all, replace the electrode or
igniter wire.
Note: Turn off the gas at the source while troubleshooting.

Plugged orifice
Unplug the orifice as follows:
Remove griddle and grease tray.
Remove burners from the bottom of the firebox by
pulling the cotter pin from beneath the burner peg
using a standard screwdriver or needle nose pliers.
Carefully lift each burner up and away from the gas
Remove the orifice from the control valve.
Gently clear any obstruction with a fine wire.
Reinstall the orifice, reinstall the burners over the
orifices, and seat each burner peg into position hole
at the bottom ledge of the firebox.
Replace all cotter pins.
Replace cooking components and grease collectors.
If an obstruction is suspected in the control valve, contact your local Cal Flame dealer for assistance.
Burner tube is misaligned over the orifice
Reposition the burner tube so that it is properly seated
over the orifice.
Obstruction in the gas line
Remove the fuel line from grill. (Do not smoke or perform any maintenance in the vicinity of an open flame.)
Open the gas valve for one second to blow out any debris. Close off the gas valve and reconnect the fuel line

Yellow Flame
Once the entire burner is operating, check the flame
color to be sure that it is mostly blue. Some yellow at
the tips may be present due to impurities in the fuel. If
the flame is golden or yellow in color, the reason could
be seasoning salts, oil film, or other foreign matter on
the burner.
Misalignment of Igniter on Burner
Check for proper position of the electrode tip, which
should be pointing forward towards the front of the
burner and free of grease to allow proper sparking.
The ignition wire should be connected firmly to the
valve ignition device and electrode. Replace the ignition wire if it is frayed or cracked.
With the gas supply closed and all control knobs set
to the off position, check each position igniter individually for the presence of a spark at the electrode.
Push each knob in fully and rotate it about 1/4 turn
to the left (counter-clockwise) until you hear a loud
click. The trigger hitting the strike block should
produce a blue spark at the electrode tip. Return
control knob to the off position before checking the
next igniter.
While the grill is still hot, wait for a minimum of
five minutes before commencing re-ignition. (This
allows accumulated gas fumes to clear.) If all checks
/ corrections have been made and the gas grill still
fails to operate properly, contact your local Cal
Flame dealer.
When fire occurs in and around the burner tubes, immediately turn off gas at its source and turn the control knobs clockwise to the ‘OFF’ position. Wait until the
grill has cooled off and then clean the burner tubes and
burners as described on page of this manual.

Converting from LP to NG
All Cal Flame grills are manufactured as standard liquid propane
(LP) grills and can be converted to burn natural gas (NG). There are
two steps required to convert a grill from LP to NG.
You must perform both steps.
Step 1: Switching the regulator behind the grill
Step 2: Changing the burner orifices
The kit contains two orifices to convert main burners. Your kit will
have only the parts you need to convert your grill.
Before you begin, make certain the LP gas source has been disconnected from the grill. If you have a cart, you do not need to remove
the grill from the cart.
To gain access to the NG regulator, tilt the grill forward.
Hibachi Grill
LTR50001096, Rev. A
WARNING! You must have an authorized service
technician perform this procedure. If these instructions are not followed exactly, a fire or explosion
may result causing property damage, personal injury or
loss of life. LMS Inc. will not be held responsible for an improperly converted gas grill.
Step 1: Switching the regulator behind the grill
The regulator in the image below has
been removed from a grill to illustrate this procedure.
1. Remove the LP gas line.
2. Remove the cap fitting from the
end of the NG gas regulator.
3. Place the cap fitting over the LP
gas inlet.
You will need:
• 13 mm open end
• Male flared fitting
(not provided)
• Pipe compound suitable
for natural gas
4. Insert a male flared fitting (not provided) in the NG gas regulator.
NOTE: A flared
fitting is NOT included with your grill.
If you are attaching a
flex hose to the regulator, you will need a
fitting. The fitting requires a male flare on
the input end with a
1/2” MPT on the output
end. The flared male input end needs to be the
size of your flex tubing.
You can also connect
the regulator directly
to your NG gas service,
which will not require a
flared fitting.
