•Important: Make sure gas is off at LP cylinder before
checking valves. Knobs lock in OFF position. To check
valves, first push in knobs and release, knobs should spring
back. If knobs do not spring back, replace valve assembly
before using grill. Turn knobs to LOW position then turn back to
OFF position. Valves should turn smoothly.
Hose Check
•Before each use, check to see if hoses are cut or worn.
Replace damaged hoses before using grill. Use only
valve/hose/regulator specified by manufacturer.
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.
• 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 high quality
appearance, wash with mild detergent and warm soapy water
and wipe dry with a soft cloth after each use. Baked-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
CAUTION
Follow these instructions to clean and/or replace parts of burner
assembly or if you have trouble igniting grill.
SPIDER ALERT!
SPIDER AND WEBS
INSIDE BURNER TUBE
If you notice that your grill is getting hard to light or that the
flame isn’t as strong as it should be, take the time to check and
clean the venturi’s.
VALVE
CONTROL PANEL
SPIDER WEBS
INSIDE VENTURI
BURNER
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 tube(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.
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.
Storing Your Grill
•Clean cooking grates.
•Store in dry location.
•When LP cylinder is connected to grill, store outdoors in a wellventilated 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.
1. Turn gas OFF at control knobs and LP cylinder.
2. Remove cooking grates and troughs.
3. Remove cotter pins and carryover tubes from front of burners.
4. Remove cotter pin and lift burner to disengage from
bracket on firebox.
5. Use flat blade screwdriver to pry off electrode from burner.
Electrode should remain in firebox.
6. Carefully lift each burner up and away from valve openings.
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.
7. Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove food
residue and dirt.
8. Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an open
paper clip.
9. 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. See illustrations at right.

WARNING
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.
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.
Figure C
CAUTION
The quick disconnect socket should never be connected
to the grill. Direction of gas flow is indicated on the
socket.
Quick disconnect socket
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).
House piping
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
Sleeve
Figure B
38
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).
EMERGENCIES: If a gas leak cannot be stopped, or a fire occurs due to gas leakage, call the fire department.
Emergencies
Possible Cause
Prevention/Solution
Gas leaking from
cracked/cut/burned
hose.
• Damaged hose.
• Turn off gas at LP cylinder or at source on natural gas systems. If
anything but burned, replace valve/hose/regulator. If burned,
discontinue use of product until a plumber has investigated cause
and corrections are made.
Gas leaking from LP
cylinder.
• Mechanical failure due to rusting or
mishandling.
• Replace LP cylinder.
Gas leaking from LP
cylinder valve.
• Failure of cylinder valve from
mishandling or mechanical failure.
• Turn off LP cylinder valve. Return LP cylinder to gas supplier.
Gas leaking between
LP cylinder and
regulator connection.
• Improper installation, connection not
tight, failure of rubber seal.
• Turn off LP cylinder valve. Remove regulator from cylinder and
visually inspect rubber seal for damage. See LP Cylinder Leak Test
and Connecting Regulator to the LP Cylinder.
Fire coming through
control panel.
• Fire in burner tube section of burner due
to blockage.
• Turn off control knobs and LP cylinder valve. Leave lid open to
allow flames to die down. After fire is out and grill is cold, remove
burner and inspect for spider nests or rust. See Natural Hazard
and Cleaning the Burner Assembly pages.
Grease fire or
continuous excessive
flames above cooking
surface.
• Too much grease buildup in burner area.
• Turn off control knobs and LP cylinder valve. Leave lid open to
allow flames to die down. After cooling, clean food particles and
excess grease from inside firebox area, grease tray, and other
surfaces.
Possible Cause
Prevention/Solution
GAS ISSUES:
• Trying to light wrong burner.
• See instructions on control panel and in Use and Care section.
• Burner not engaged with control valve.
• Make sure valves are positioned inside of burner tubes.
• Obstruction in burner.
• Ensure burner tubes are not obstructed with spider webs or other
matter. See cleaning section of Use and Care.
• No gas flow.
• Make sure LP cylinder is not empty. If LP cylinder is not empty,
refer to “Sudden drop in gas flow.”
• For a grill equipped with the AUTO-CLEAN™ feature, make sure
the AUTO-CLEAN™ valve is set to “Grill”
• Vapor lock at coupling nut to LP cylinder.
• Turn off knobs and disconnect coupling nut from LP cylinder.
Reconnect and retry.
• Coupling nut and LP cylinder valve not
fully connected.
• Turn the coupling nut approximately one-half to three-quarters
additional turn until solid stop. Tighten by hand only - do not use
tools.

Possible Cause
Prevention/Solution
Burner(s) will not light
using ignitor.
(See Electronic Ignition
Troubleshooting also)
ELECTRONIC IGNITION:
• No spark, no ignition noise.
• See Section I of Electronic Ignition System.
• No spark, some ignition noise.
• See Section II of Electronic Ignition System.
• Sparks, but not at electrode or at full
strength.
• See Section III of Electronic Ignition System.
Burner(s) will not
match light.
• See “GAS ISSUES:” on previous page.
• Match will not reach.
• Use long-stem match (fireplace match).
• Improper method of match-lighting.
• Out of gas.
• See “Match-Lighting” section of Use and Care.
• Check for gas in LP cylinder.
• Excess flow valve tripped.
• Turn off knobs, wait 30 seconds and light grill. If flames are still low,
turn off knobs and LP cylinder valve. Disconnect regulator.
Reconnect regulator and leak-test. Turn on LP cylinder valve, wait
30 seconds and then light grill.
• Vapor lock at coupling nut/LP cylinder
connection.
• Turn off knobs and LP cylinder valve. Disconnect coupling nut from
cylinder. Reconnect and retry.
• High or gusting winds.
• Turn front of grill to face wind or increase flame height.
• Low on LP gas.
• Refill LP cylinder.
• Excess flow valve tripped.
• Refer to “Sudden drop in gas flow” above.
• Grease buildup.
• Clean burners and inside of grill/firebox.
• Excessive fat in meat.
• Trim fat from meat before grilling.
• Excessive cooking temperature.
• Adjust (lower) temperature accordingly.
Persistent grease fire.
• Grease trapped by food buildup around
burner system.
• Turn knobs to OFF. Turn gas off at LP cylinder. Leave lid in position
and let fire burn out. After grill cools, remove and clean all parts.
Flashback...
(fire in burner tube(s)).
• Burner and/or burner tubes are blocked.
• Turn knobs to OFF. Clean burner and/or burner tubes. See burner
cleaning section of Use and Care.
Unable to fill LP
cylinder.
• Some dealers have older fill nozzles
with worn threads.
• The worn nozzles don’t have enough “bite” to engage the valve. Try
a second LP dealer.
One burner does not
light from other
burner(s).
• Grease buildup or food particles in
end(s) of carryover tube(s).
• Clean carry-over tube(s) with wire brush.

Troubleshooting - Electronic Ignition
Problem (Ignition)
Check Procedure
Prevention/Solution
• Check battery orientation.
• Install battery (make sure that “+” and “–”
connectors are oriented correctly, with “+” end up
and “–” end down.)
• Has battery been used
previously?
• Replace battery with new alkaline battery.
• Button assembly not
installed properly.
• Check to insure threads are
properly engaged. Button
should travel up and down
without binding.
• Unscrew button cap assembly and reinstall, making
sure threads are aligned and engaged fully.
• Faulty spark module.
• If no sparks are generated
with new battery and good
wire connections, module is
faulty.
• Replace spark module assembly.
• Are output connections on
and tight?
• Remove and reconnect all output connections at
module and electrodes.
• Output lead
connections not
connected.
• Are output connections on
and tight?
• Remove and reconnect all output connections at
module and electrodes.
• Arcing to grill away
from burner(s).
• If possible, observe grill in
dark location. Operate
ignition system and look for
arcing between output wires
and grill frame.
• If sparks are observed other than from burner(s),
wire insulation may be damaged. Replace wires.
• Weak battery.
• All sparks present but weak
or at slow rate.
• Replace battery with a new alkaline battery.
• Electrodes are wet.
• Has moisture accumulated
on electrode and/or in burner
ports?
• Use paper towel to remove moisture.
• Electrodes cracked or
broken “sparks at
