LR G.~S 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 gnu or a replacement pressure regulator and hose assemblies specified by Sonoma). This assembly is designed to connect directly to a standard 20 lb. L.F’~ cylinder. L.P. Cylinders are not included with the grill. L.P
Cylinders can be purchased separately at an independent dealer.
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 cylinder 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 valve terminating in an LP gas supply cylinder outlet specified, as applicable, for connection No. 510 in the standard for compressed gas cylinder valve outlet and inlet connection ANSIICGA-V-1. 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,R gas cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) or the National Standard of Canada,
CANICAS-Bssg, Cylinders, Spheres and 1ube~ for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods.”
L.P. TANK USE
When turning the LP. 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 oil the gas supply. Opening the valve rapidly may simulate a gas leak, causing the safety device to activate, restricting gas
causing low flames. Opening the valve slowly will insure this safety feature
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 replaced 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.
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 chock the whole system for leaks arid immediately check the system it the smell o f 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
2. left) two (2) rotations to open.
Turn off the burner control knobs.
Turn the top knob of the fuel supply cylinder counterclockwise (right to
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 1-3.
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.
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.
Also it is recommended to perform a leak test at least once a year whether or not the L..P. gas supply cylinder has been disconnected.
NOTE: 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 LPL 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.
NOTE: If you cannot stop a gas leak turn of-f the gas supply and call your local gas or the dealer you purchased the appliance from. If necessary, replace the faulty part with the manufacturer’s recommended replacement part. A slight leak could cause a fire.

can collect Inside of the grill, the grill nati 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 recommend cleaning and storing the drip tray after every use.
The cooking grates can be cleaned immediately after cooking is completed and after turning off

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.

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 rot get hot enough.
Burners make a snapping noise.
The grill heats unevenly.
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
panel, thereby damaging the grill and making it unsafe to operate. We recommend you chock 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?
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 first.
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?
