Use an empty soup can (not included) to hang from grease clip. Grease clip ! CAUTION • Failure to install can in clip will cause hot grease to drip from bottom of grill with risk of fire or property damage. Check to make sure ALL valves are engaged in the burner tubes and the clips are attached (as shown). Tighten clip if needed by simply squeezing the two long sides, A and B, of the clip together. Clip(s) may loosen when grill is moved, recheck each time. View of underside of Grill Bottom Console Assembly A B Burner Tube 10 Item to Assemble: 1 12’ Natural Gas Hose 1. On the back right side, attach 12’ natural gas hose to valve. 2. Use a wrench to hold fitting on grill. Tighten the connection with an adjustable wrench. 3. Leak test as shown on Page 12 before using grill. 10 • 4638234 Clip Valve Connecting Your Grill to the Natural Gas Source 1. Coat pipe nipple with gas resistant dope. Screw socket onto gas manifold at gas source (A). 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). 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. WARNING • Connection to gas source must be done by a certified Plumber. 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 ½ psig (3.5kPa). The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shut off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than ½ psi (3.5 kPa). WARNING • Do not use hard metal piping of any kind to connect this type of grill to a 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.

Leak Testing Valve and Hose 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. 3. Brush a soapy solution onto areas and connections shaded In illustration below. 4. “If growing” bubbles appear, there is a leak. Turn gas off at control knobs and 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. Safety Tips s When grill is not in use, turn off all control knobs and gas source. s Never move grill while in operation or still hot. s Use long-handled barbecue utensils to avoid burns and splatters. s Maximum load for side shelves is 10 lbs. s A soup can must be attached to grease clip and emptied after each use. Do not remove soup can until grill has completely cooled. s If you notice grease or other hot material dripping from grill onto valve or hose, turn off gas supply at once. Determine the cause, correct, clean and inspect valve and hose before continuing. Perform a leak test. s If you have a grill problem see the "Troubleshooting Section". 12 • 4638234 WARNING For Safe Use of Your Grill and to Avoid Serious Injury: 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. • Do not use charcoal in a gas grill. • • • • • • 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. • Apartment Dwellers: Check with management to learn the requirements and fire codes for using a 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 balconies made of wood. • NEVER attempt to light burner with lid closed. A buildup of non-ignited gas inside a closed grill is hazardous. CAUTION • Putting out grease fires by closing the lid is not possible. Grills are well ventilated for safety reasons. • Do not use water on a grease fire. Personal injury may result. If a grease fire develops turn knobs and gas source off. • Do not leave grill unattended while preheating or burning off food residue on high. If grill has not been regularly cleaned a grease fire can occur that may damage the product. Before Your First Cookout • Light burners, check to make sure they are lit, close the lid and warm up grill on HIGH for 15 minutes. Curing of paint and parts will produce an odor only on first lighting. Ignitor Lighting s Do not lean over grill while lighting. 1. Open lid during lighting. Turn on gas at gas source. 2. To ignite any burner, turn burner knob to HI, turn ROTARY IGNITOR button rapidly. 3. If ignition does NOT immediately take place, turn all burner valve knobs to OFF, wait 5 minutes, then repeat lighting procedure. 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 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 After Lighting warm up on HI • Before each use, check to see if hose is cut or worn. Replace damaged hoses before using grill. Use only valve and hose specified by manufacturer. Match Lighting s Do not lean over grill while lighting. 1. Open lid. Turn on gas at gas source. 2. Attach match to Match holder, light match. 3. Push in and turn any burner to HI. Be sure burner lights and stays lit. Repeat on other burner. CAUTION Clean burner prior to use after storing, at the beginning of the grilling season or after 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. Typical spider webs See following pages for specific inside burner cleaning instructions. After Lighting warm up on HI. Left side of Grill Match lighting hole General Grill Cleaning CAUTION • If burner does not light, turn knobs to OFF. Wait 5 minutes and try again. If the burner does not ignite with valve open, gas will continue to flow out of the burner and could accidently ignite with risk of injury. Burner Flame Check HIGH • Light burner, rotate knobs LOW from HIGH to LOW. You should see a smaller flame in LOW position than seen on HIGH. Always check flame prior to each use. If only low flame is seen refer to "Sudden drop or low flame" in the Troubleshooting Section. Turning Grill Off • Turn all knobs to OFF position. Turn gas OFF at gas source. • 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. s Do not use citrisol, abrasive cleaners, degreasers or a concentrated grill cleaner on plastic parts. Damage to and failure of parts can result. • Porcelain grate: 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. • Stainless Steel: Wash with mild detergent or nonabrasive cleaner and warm soapy water, wipe dry with a soft nonabrasive cloth Ignitor Check • Turn gas off at gas source. Rotate ignitor button rapidly. "Click" should be heard and spark seen each time between collector box or burner and electrode. See "Troubleshooting" if no click or spark. 4638234 • 13 Cleaning the Burner Assembly Follow these instructions to clean and/or replace parts of burner assembly or if you have trouble igniting grill.

Take these factors into consideration to insure best results. If you use the indirect cooking method (lighting only one burner and placing food on opposite side of cooking grate), allow more grilling time. 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: 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.

Medium How to Tell if Meat is Grilled Thoroughly • 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 180 F°; breasts, 170 F°. Juices should run clear and flesh should not be pink. • Hamburgers made of any ground meat or poultry should reach 160 F°, and be brown in the middle with no pink juices. Beef, veal and lamb steaks, roasts and chops can be cooked to 145 F°. All cuts of pork should reach 160 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 165 F°, or until steaming hot. 12-15 min Ham 5 lb. fully cooked Low-Medium 20 min per lb Lamb Chops ½” For more information call: USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-800-535-4555 In Washington, DC (202) 720-3333, 10:00 am-4:00 pm EST 6-12 min Low 1 hr, 15 min to 1 hr, 30 min Chicken halved or quartered Low 40-60 min Turkey Low-Medium 18-20 min per lb Seafood Steaks 1” thick Medium-Hot Well: 10-15 min Fillets 6-8 oz.
