L.P. GAS INSTALLATION
Sonoma Gas Grills are set to operate with L.P. gas and come with a high capacity hose and regulator assembly.
(Note: Only use the pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with the grill or a replacement pressure
regulator and hose assemblies specified by Sonoma). This assembly is designed to connect directly to a standard
20 lb. L.P. cylinder. L.P. Cylinders are not included with the grill. L.P. Cylinders can be purchased separately at an independent dealer.
L.P. TANK INFORMATION
Never use a dented or rusted L.P. tank or cylinder with a damaged valve.
L.P. cylinders are equipped with an O.P.D (Overfilling Prevention Device).
The device shuts off the flow of gas to a cyli nder after 80% capacity is reached. This limits the potential for release of gas when the cylinder is heated, averting a fire or possible injury.
The L.P. cylinder must have a shut-off vlave terminating in an L.P. gas supply cylinder outlet specified, as applicable for connection No. 510 in the standard for compressed gas cylinder valve outlet and inlet connection ANSI/CGAV1.
Cylinders must not be stored in a building, garage, or any other enclosed area. (The L.P. cylinder must have an overfill protection device, OPD, on it.)
The L.P. gas supply cylinder must be constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications for L.P. gas cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or the National Standard of Canada, CAN/CAS-B339
“Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods.”
L.P. TANK USE
• When turning the L.P. tank on, make sure to open the valve SLOWLY two (2) complete turns to insure proper gas flow. Most gas tanks now come equipped with a leak detector mechanism internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly it shuts off the gas supply. Opening the valve rapidly may simulate a gas leak, causing the safety device to activate, restricting gas flow causing low flames. Opening the valve slowly will insure this safety feature is not falsely triggered.
• When not in use, gas supply cylinder valve is to be in the “OFF” position.
• The tank supply system must be stored upright to allow for vapor withdrawal.
• The regulator and hose assembly must be inspected before each use of the grill. If there is excessive abrasion or
wear or if the hose is cut, it must be r eplaced prior to the grill being used again
• Cylinders must be stored outdoors out of the reach of children and must not be stored in a building, garage or any
other enclosed area.
• Only a qualified gas supplier should refill the L.P. tank.
• Do not store a spare L.P. gas cylinder under or near the grill.
LP Gas Cylinder Installation
A frosty cylinder valve indicates possible gas over fill. Close the LP valve and call your dealer immediately.
1. Never store any extra cylinder under or near your grill.
2. Never fill your cylinder over 80% full by weight. This may cause release of gas from the safety relief valve.
3. If the information in points 1 and 2 above is not followed exactly, a fire causing death or serious injury may occur.
1. The gas supply must be turned off at the LP gas supply cylinder when this gas grill is not in use.
2. Storage of this gas grill indoors is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the gas grill.
3. Cylinders must be stored outdoors out of reach of children and must not be stored in a building, garage, or any other enclosed area.
LP Gas Cylinder installation
1, Pull the Cylinder lock ring up and put the cylinder in the hole on the cart base.
(See Fig. 25)
2, Put the ring on the neck of the cylinder to lock the cylinder on position.
(See Fig. 26)
Cylinder lock ring
Pre Operation Leak Testing
Although all gas connections on the grill are leak tested prior to shipment, a complete gas tightness check must be performed at the installation site due to possible shifting during shipment, installation or excessive pressure unknowingly being applied to the unit. Periodically check the whole system for leaks and immediately check the system if the smell of gas is detected.
Do not smoke while leak testing. Extinguish all open flames. Never leak test with an open flame.
Mix a solution of equal parts mild detergent or liquid soap and water.
1. Turn off the burner control knobs.
2. Turn the top knob of the fuel supply cylinder counterclockwise (right to left) two (2) rotations to open.
3. Apply the soap solution to connections of the fuel supply assembly. If no soap bubbles appear, there is no gas leak.
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 repeat steps 13.
4. Turn off the knob on the fuel supply cylinder.
5. Turn on the burner control knobs for a moment to release the pressure in the hose, then turn the control knobs back
6. Wash off soapy solution with cold water and towel dry.
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.
It is also recommended to perform a leak test at least once a year whether or not the L.P. gas supply cylinder has been disconnected.
When leak testing this appliance, make sure to test and tighten all loose connections, including the side burner.
A slight leak in the system can result in a low flame, or hazardous condition. Most L.P. gas tanks now come equipped with a leak detector mechanism internal to the tank, when gas is allowed to escape rapidly, it shuts off the gas supply. A leak may significantly reduce the gas flow making the grill difficult to light or causing low flames.
If you cannot stop a gas leak turn off the gas supply and call your local gas or the dealer you purchased the appliance from. If necessary, replace the faulty part with the manufacturerʼs recommended replacement part. A slight leak could cause a fire.
Lighting the Grill
Important! Before Lighting:
• Check the gas supply line for cuts, wear or abrasion.
• Always keep your face and body as far away from the grill as possible when lighting.
GRILL BURNER LIGHTING
Lighting the Grill with electronic igniter
1. Make sure all control knobs are in the “OFF” position.
2. Open the gas supply valve located on top of your L.P. tank.
ATTENTION: When turning the L.P. tank on, make sure to open the valve very SLOWLY two (2) complete turns to insure proper gas flow.
3. Always open the hood before attempting to light.
4. Push and turn one of the control knobs counter clockwise to the “HIGH” position and immediately press the electronic igniter button. You will hear a snapping sound. It may be necessary to hold the electronic starter button for about 4 seconds. (See Fig. 27)
NOTE: If the burner does not light in 4 seconds, turn the knob to the “OFF” position and wait 5 minutes before tryi
5. Repeat above steps to light remaining burners.
If by chance the electronic igniter does not light the burner, the burner may be lit with a match attached to the match extender, located on the inside of the cart door.
Keep your face as far away from the grill surface as possible and pass the match extender through the spaces in the grill grates to the ports of the back crossover burner between the flavor grids. Position the match near the burner ports and push and turn the control knob counter clockwise to the “HIGH” position. (See Fig. 28-29)
The match extender can be stored inside the cart door by sliding the extender ring through the opening on the inside, back of the cart door. (See Fig. 30)
If the grill will not light after several attempts see the trouble-shooting section of this manual. Turn the control knobs to the OFF position when not in use.
Using the Grill and Side Burner
Do not use the grill in garages, breezeways, 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 13" 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 6" clearance from the back of the grill to non-combustible construction is required for the lid to fully open.
Storage of an outdoor gas cooking appliance indoor is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected and removed from the appliance.
Do not leave the grill unattended while cooking!
1. Make sure the grill has been leak tested and is properly located.
2. Light the grill burners using the instructions provided in this manual.
3. Turn the control knobs to desired temperature “High, Medium, or Low” and preheat the grill for 10 minutes before cooking.
4. Adjust heat settings to meet your cooking needs for desired results.
5. Allow grill to cool down, wipe off any splatters or grease and clean the drip tray as needed.
6. Do not put a cover on the grill while it is still hot as it could start a fire.
SIDE BURNER LIGHTING
Push and turn the control knob to the “HIGH” position and immediately press and hold the electronic igniter 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.
(See Fig. 31)
If by chance the electronic igniter does not light the burner, the burner may be lit with a match. Attach the match to the match extender, located inside the right cart door.
Keep your face as far away from the grill surface as possible and hold a match, attached to the match extender, near the burner ports, then push and turn the control knob counter clockwise to the “HIGH” position.
Using the Rotisserie Burner
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 intens e heat sears in the natural juices and nutrients found in quality cuts of meats.
NOTE: The rotisserie spit rod is centered between the grill hood and the burners. It may be necessary to remove the grates and flavor grids when cooking larger portions of meat on the rotisserie. This is by design,
since this configuration gives you the most possible room above and below the rod for larger pieces of meat.
Once lit, the rotisserie burner will reach cooking temperature 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 12 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 rotisserie motor is completely seated on the bracket prior to operating. Make sure the rotisserie cord is away from any hot surfaces.
ATTACHING THE ROTISSERIE
The motor is mounted on a bracket on the left side of the grill by sliding the motor over the bracket with the cord fac ing the back of the grill. (See Fig. 32)
With the rotisserie motor in place and plugged into an electrical outlet, it is now ready to operate. Slide one of th e meat forks onto the rod (prongs facing away from the rounded end). Push the rod through the center of the foo d, 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 thumb screws. It may also be necessary to wrap food wit h butcher’s string, (never use nylon or plastic string) to secure loose portions. (See Fig. 33)
Pointed end of the rod
Once the food is secure, insert the pointed end of the rotisserie 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 rotisseri e motor.
NOTE: Remove the rotisserie when not in use. Store the unit indoors when not in use. Remove warming
shelf when using rotisserie.
Rotisserie Lighting/ Care and Maintenance
Open the lid. Push and turn the control knob for the rotisserie counter clockwise to the “HIGH” position.
Wait 5 seconds. Then press and hold the electronic igniter 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. 34)
If the igniter 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. 35)
NOTE: After the first use the stainless steel around the burner will darken. This is a normal reaction of premium stainless steel to heat and is not a defect. The infrared panel will also
darken after initial use. This is also a normal occurrence.
The drip tray should be cleaned periodically to prevent heavy buildup of debris.
NOTE: Allow the drip tray to cool before attempting to clean.
Important: Do not leave the grill outside during inclement weather unless it is covered. Rain water can collect inside of the grill, the grill cart or the drip tray if left uncovered. If the drip tray is not cleaned after use and the grill is left uncovered, the drip tray will fill with water causing grease and water to spill into the grill cart. We reco
mmend cleaning and storing the drip tray after every use.
The cooking grates can be cleaned immediately after cooking is completed and after turning off the grill. 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.
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 a nonabrasive oven cleaner in conjunction with a stainless cleaner.
NOTE: Always scrub in the direction of the grain.
IGNITER ACCESS (UNDER SIDE BURNER SHELF)
To remove igniter, unscrew igniter push button and locking nut from front panel of the side burner and igniter will fall out through the bottom
Troubleshooting Your Grill
GENERAL TROUBLE SHOOTING
You should inspect the burners at least once a year or immediately if any of the following conditions occur:
• The smell of gas.
• Flames appearing mostly yellow. (some yellow at the tips is OK)
• The grill will not get hot enough.
• Burners make a snapping noise.
• The grill heats unevenly.
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 the grill and remove any spiders, insects and webs at least once a year to reduce this risk.
BEFORE CALLING CUSTOMER SERVICE
If the grill does not function properly, use the following checklist.
Grill will not light when the igniter button is pushed. Is your gas supply turned on?
Is there gas in your L.P. tank? Check your gas level.
Is one of your burners turned on? Allow up to four seconds of gas flow to ignite.
Is your igniter working?
You should hear a snapping sound when you press the igniter?
If you hear a snapping sound can you see a spark at the electrodes?
Note - You will need to remove your cooking grates and flavor grids to see the electrodes.
Check to see if your igniter battery is installed correctly with the positive side to the outside.
Check your igniter battery and replace if needed.
Check for loose wire connections to the igniter or electrodes.
Check to see if debris is blocking the electrodes.
If the igniter is not working can you light the grill with a match?
Troubleshooting Your Grill
