Built-In Instructions

The Frigidaire Grill can be installed as a built-in Grill. If installed as a built-in Grill, the Grill surround must be constructed of Non-combustible material.

Planning and Design

Start by identifying the number and size of components you want to include: Grill, side burner, access doors for storage or other items you may wish to furnish such as: refrigerator, sink, warming drawer.

Countertops must be constructed with non-combustible, outdoor-safe materials. Consider outdoor lighting to illuminate after-dark Grilling. For assistance in designing and building your outdoor cooking center, contact a landscape architect or general contractor. Review the drawings on the following pages to determine the exact dimensions and items needed for a built-in Grill. Keep in mind that the gas line hook-up is on the right hand side for the main Grill head. The structure, Grill and support items must be kept level throughout the installation to ensure proper operation.

Location

Take into account convenience and visual impact as well as traffic flow, wind exposure, and the site’s structural suitability. The Grill should never be placed in an enclosed area without an approved ventilation system, or beneath a combustible overhang. Because the Grill exhausts to the rear, it should never be located in front of a window or less than 12” from hard-to-clean surfaces. We recommend keeping your gas supply lines as short as possible for best performance. To ensure a perfect fit, we strongly recommend that you have all components on hand prior to final construction.

Clearance to Non-Combustible Construction

For your safety a minimum of 3” clearance from the back of the Grill to non-combustible construction is required. You should allow at least 6” side clearance to non-combustible construction. The Frigidaire Grill can be placed directly adjacent to non-combustible construction below the cooking surface.

Outboard Ignitor Plate Installation (26” model only)

The electronic ignitor requires a standard size electrical box, (available at a local hardware store), with a minimum depth of 2.5” to be mounted in the structure. It should be placed on the left front or left side of the built-in island, with the center of the ignitor button no more than 3”-5” from the Grill. The ignitor plate, sold separately, fits over the standard electrical box once mounted in the structure. (See drawing on following page). The ground wire for the ignitor needs to be grounded to a metal structure in order for the ignitor to work.

Utilities

For natural gas Grills, consult your local gas utility company for hook-up requirements. All gas connections should be made by a plumber or a gas supply company. For natural gas installation, the supply line must be at least 1/2” diameter. The rotisserie requires a 110/120 volt electric supply and GFI receptacle. (6.5 amp min.)

If your plan includes a sink, arrange for your plumber to run a water line to the site.

Note:

Turn off the burner control knobs.

Turn the top knob of the fuel supply cylinder counterclockwise (right to left) one rotation to open.

Apply the soap solution to connections of the fuel supply assembly. If no soap bubbles appear, the grill is ok to use. If bubbles form at the connections, a leak is detected.

(If a leak is detected, immediately turn off the gas supply, tighten any leaking fittings, turn gas on, and recheck).

Turn off the knob on the fuel supply cylinder.

Turn on the burner control knobs for a moment to release the pressure in the hose, then turn the control knobs back off.

Wash off soapy solution with cold water and towel dry.

If you cannot stop a gas leak turn off the gas supply and call your local gas utility, or the dealer you purchased the appliance from. If necessary, replace the faulty part with the manufacturers recommended replacement part.

Check all gas supply fittings before each use and each time the gas supply cylinder is connected to the regulator. Have a Qualified Service Technician leak test the grill any time a part of the gas system is replaced. Also have a Qualified Service Technician perform a leak test at least once a year whether or not the L.P. gas supply cylinder has been disconnected.

15

Using the Grill

Grill Location

Do not use the grill in garages, breezeway, sheds or any enclosed area. Never operate the grill in enclosed areas as this could lead to a carbon monoxide buildup, which could result in injury or death. Place the grill on a level surface. Avoid moving the grill while it is operation.

Note: The grill will operate best if it is not facing directly into the wind.

Clearance to combustible construction - A minimum of 12” from the sides and back must be maintained from the gas grill above and below the cooking surface to adjacent vertical combustible construction.

Clearance to non-combustible construction - A minimum of 3” clearance from the back of the grill to noncombustible construction is required for the lid to fully open.

Using the Rotisserie & Side Burners

(Optional ROTISSERIE KIT to use with Back Infrared Burner must be purchased separately)

The grill rotisserie system is designed to cook items from the back using infrared heat. The rotisserie burner is an infrared type which provides intense searing radiant heat. Preferred by chefs over other cooking methods, this intense heat is magnificent for searing in the natural juices and nutrients found in quality cuts of meats.

Once lit, the rotisserie burner will reach cooking temperatures in 1 minute. The orange/red glow will even out in about 5 minutes. The rotisserie motor is equipped with metal gears and is capable of turning up to 20 lbs.

of food. The motor is mounted on a bracket on the left side of the grill by sliding the motor over the bracket with the cord facing the back of the grill. Make sure the motor is straight prior to operating.

Warning: Electrical Grounding Instructions

This appliance (rotisserie motor) is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.

Attaching the Rotisserie (purchased separately)

The motor is mounted on a bracket on the left side of the grill by sliding the motor over the bracket with the cord facing the back of the grill. (For bracket installation see separate instruction sheet)

With the rotisserie motor in place and plugged into an electrical outlet it is now ready to operate. After installing rotis rod handle, slide one of the meat forks onto the rod. (prongs facing away from the handle)

Push the rod through the center of the food, then slide the second meat fork onto the rod. (prongs toward the food). Center the food to be cooked on the rod, then push the meat forks firmly together. Tighten the wing nuts. It may also be necessary to wrap food with butcher’s string, (never use nylon or plastic string) to secure loose portions.

Once the food is secure, insert the pointed end of the rotis rod into the motor assembly and rest the other end on the support on the right-hand side of the Grill.

(If needed remove the cooking grates for more room.). Turn the power switch to the “On” position to start the rotisserie motor.

Open the lid. Push and turn the control knob counter clockwise to the “HIGH” position. Wait 5 seconds.

Then press and hold the electronic ignitor button.

You’ll hear a snapping sound. If the burner does not light in 4 seconds, turn the control knob to OFF and wait 5 minutes before trying again. Once lit, turn the control knob to the desired setting. (See Fig. 27)

(If the ignitor does not function, the burner can be lit by holding a lit match to the burner while the control knob is turned counter clockwise to “HIGH”.)

(See Fig. 28)

NOTE: After the first use the stainless steel around the burner will darken. This is a normal occurrence of the non-rusting, type 304 stainless steel used on the grill. The infrared panel will also darken after initial use. This is a normal occurrence.

Note: Do Not operate the main burners and infrared back burner at the same time.

Side Burner Lighting

Push and turn the control knob to the “HIGH”position and immediately press and hold the electronic ignitor button.

You’ll hear a snapping sound. It may be necessary to hold the electronic starter button for about 4 seconds. If the burner does not light in 4 seconds, turn the knob to the

“OFF” position and wait 5 minutes before trying again.

Repeat above steps to light remaining burners.

(See Fig. 29)

Match Lighting

If by chance the electronic ignitor does not light the burner, the burner may be lit with a match. Keep your face as far away from the burner as possible and place a lit, long stem match through the spaces in the grate to the ports of the burner. Position the match near the burner ports and push and turn the control knob to the

“HIGH”position.

Care and Maintenance

Drip Tray

The drip tray located below the grill, inside the cart, should be cleaned periodically to prevent heavy buildup of debris.

Note: Allow the drip tray to cool before attempting to clean.

Cooking Grates

The cooking grates can be cleaned immediately after cooking is completed and after turning off the flame.

Wear a barbecue mitt and scrub the cooking grates with a damp cloth. If the grill is allowed to cool down, cleaning the grates will be easier if removed from the grill and cleaned with a mild detergent.

Stainless Steel

The grill is made from a non-rusting stainless steel. After initial usage, areas of the grill may discolor from the intense heat given off by the burners, this is normal.

Purchase a mild stainless steel cleaner and rub in the direction of the grain of the metal. Specks of grease can gather on the surface of the stainless steel and bake on to the surface and give a worn appearance. For removal use an non-abrasive oven cleaner in conjunction with a stainless cleaner.

Note: Always scrub in the direction of the grain.

Ignitor push button and locking nut

Ignitor Access:

If the ignitor should ever need to be replaced, there is an access door in the bottom of the front panel, below the ignitor.

It is opened by removing the two 1/4” hex head screws that hold it in place. (See Fig A)

To remove Ignitor, unscrew ignitor push button and locking nut from front panel of grill and ignitor will fall down through opening. (See Fig. A)

Hex Head Screws

Rear Infrared Burner:

Please light and burn the rear infrared burner at least once a month to ensure there is not a build-up of debris or grease on the burner. This will ensure the ceramic burner will continue to operate as it should.

Spider and Insect Warning

Spider and insects can nest in the burners of this or any other Grill and cause the gas to flow from the front of the burner. This is very dangerous condition which can cause a fire to occur behind the valve panel, thereby damaging the Grill and making it unsafe to operate. We recommend you check at least once a year to be safe.
