INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (continued)
GAS CONNECTIONS
Installation Personnel: Check all connections and fittings on valves and tubing supplied as a part
of this unit to make sure they did not come loose during shipment. A manual gas valve should be
provided upstream within 6 feet of the appliance for shutting the gas off during servicing. A ground
joint union should be provided between the house plumbing and the gas inlet to the appliance. A gas
pressure regulator has been provided as a part of this appliance. It is factory pre-set for natural gas
and is field adjustable for liquid propane gas. All plumbing should be clean and free of burrs and
metal chips. All pipe connections should be made using a pipe joint compound resistant to the action
of LP gases. A drip TEE must be used to collect any moisture or dirt in the gas. Upon completing the
installation of this appliance, all the gas connections must be checked for gas leaks. Use a solution
of liquid dishwashing soap and water to check for leaks. On models with safety pilot, check the
lighter tube for correct position.
This installation must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes with the National
Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, or the National Gas and Propane Installation code
CSA-B149.1 as applicable.
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing it’s individual
manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures
equal to or more than 1/2˝ psig (3.45 kPa).
Provisions for proper air supply must be taken into account when installing the unit. Care should
be taken so as not to obstruct the area in front and in rear of the unit. DO NOT PLACE BACK OF
THE UNIT CLOSER THAN 6 INCHES TO A WALL OR OTHER SURFACES.
The appliance shall be located with respect to other equipment so it will have adequate
clearances for servicing and proper operation.
This unit is supplied with four (4) adjustable feet, which must be installed prior to operation. Four
(4)-threaded openings are provided on bottom of the unit to accept the threaded portion of the feet.
Screw in the feet and tighten them securely. During operation, check the feet every sixty- (60) days
to assure that they are tight. Failure to use the feet will void warranty and could cause unsafe
conditions.
NOTE: Appliance must be installed under a ventilation hood.
LEVELING UNIT
Level unit by adjusting the four (4) feet, which have an adjustment of one inch for line-up with other
Eagle Countertop lines.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (continued)
LIGHTING AND SHUTDOWN INSTRUCTIONS
For units with automatic safety pilot
and thermostatic controls
If pilot or burner goes out, turn off
all gas and wait 5 (five) full minutes
before attempting to relight.
To light pilot, push in the red reset
button on the safety pilot valve body
and light the pilot. Hold reset button in
for approximately 30 seconds, then
release. If the pilot goes out, repeat
the above procedure until the pilot
stays lit. When the pilot stays lit, a
valve disc will open to permit gas flow
to the burner. Turn thermostatic
controls to desired temperature and
check the main burner for proper
lighting and burning using the observation port provided.
Before using this appliance, the pilot must be checked for adjustment. Do this by turning the pilot
adjustment screw located on the safety pilot valve body.
When shutting the appliance down for long periods of time, shut off all thermostatic controls; then
shut off the pilot.
Before attempting to light the appliance, the cover, if so equipped, shall be opened.
For units that have manual valves with standing pilots or
thermostatic controls with standing pilots
Turn pilot valves on and light pilot
burners using a lighting wand or taper.
If pilot or burners go out, turn off all
gas and wait 5 (five) full minutes before
attempting to relight.
Before using this appliance, the pilots
must be adjusted. Do this by turning the
control adjustment screw in one pilot,
adjust the valve, and use the lighting wand
to light that pilot burner. Adjust the size of
the pilot flame. Repeat for each pilot valve.
When lighting the burners by turning on
the burner knobs, always make sure the
burner has lit properly from the pilot by looking through the observation port.
When shutting the appliance down for long periods of time, shut off all the burners valves; then
shut off all the pilot valves.
Before attempting to light the appliance, the cover, if so equipped, shall be opened.

PROPANE GAS CONVERSION – MODELS WITH STANDING PILOTS
This griddle is shipped from the factory with fixed Orifice Hoods for use on Natural Gas. To
convert to Propane Gas, install the burner Orifice Hoods supplied (located in the grease drawer).
1) Pull the Control Panel forward from the top and allow it to drop down. On models where
control panel is attached with screws, remove screws then remove control panel.
2) Remove the Firewall Shield(s) and burner brackets.
3) Remove burner(s) from the Orifice Hood(s) by sliding the burner toward the rear and lifting
off the hood(s).
4) Remove #44 Natural Gas Orifice Hood(s) and install the #55 Propane Gas Orifice Hood(s)
marked in red.
5) Re-install the burner(s).
6) Re-install the Firewall Shield and burner bracket.
7) Change the convertible pressure regulator to Propane Gas by removing slotted or hex
threaded plug from pressure regulator, invert and reinstall. The letters LP should be visible.

8) Adjust the Standing Pilot(s) flame height for Propane by turning the screw located on the
pilot valve body.
PROPANE GAS CONVERSION – MODELS WITH AUTO SAFETY PILOT
This griddle is shipped from the factory with fixed Orifice Hoods for use on Natural Gas. To

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
TO SEASON THE GRIDDLE HEATING SURFACE
Clean the griddle surface thoroughly. After the griddle has been thoroughly cleaned, it should be seasoned
to prevent food from sticking. Before using and after each thorough scouring, season the griddle-heating
surface in the following manner:
1) Bring griddle up to a cooking temperature of about 350 degrees F.
2) Using a clean cloth, not a spatula, spread a thin film of cooking oil or fat over the griddle cooking
surface. This film should remain on the hot griddle surface for half-hour.
3) Remove the excess fat and wipe clean. (CAUTION: GRIDDLE SURFACE WILL BE HOT).
4) Apply another film of cooking oil over the hot cooking area for another half-hour and again remove
the excess fat and wipe clean. The griddle surface will be ready for use.
Even with careful seasonings, food may, to some extent, stick to the griddle cooking surface until the
griddle plate is "broken in".
IDLING
During idle periods, to save on operating cost, lower the temperature setting of the thermostats to about
250 degrees F. It is not necessary to maintain a cooking temperature during idle periods, as the griddle can
quickly be reheated to desired temperature.
THIS APPLIANCE IS EQUIPPED FOR NATURAL GAS
This appliance is equipped with Orifices sized for operation with Natural Gas. For conversion to Propane
Gas, see instruction plate on the appliance. Orifices necessary for Propane Conversion are provided in
grease drawer.
GRIDDLE CARE
It takes very little time and effort to keep the griddle attractive and performing at top efficiency. If grease is
permitted to accumulate, it will form a gummy cake and then carbonize into a hard substance, which is
extremely difficult to remove. To prevent this condition, the following suggestions for proper cleanliness should
be followed:
1) After each use, scrape the griddle with a scraper or a flexible spatula to remove excess fat and food. A
grease drawer is provided for the scrapings. If there is an accumulation of burned on fat and food, the griddle
should be thoroughly scoured and re-seasoned as outlined above. Use pumice or griddle stone while the
griddle is warm. Do not use steel wool because of the danger of steel slivers getting into the food.
2) Daily use a clean cloth and a good non-abrasive cleaner to clean the stainless steel body of the griddle.
Wipe the polished front with a soft cloth.
3) At least once a day, remove the grease drawer and wash in the way as an ordinary cooking utensil. If
the grease drawer is permitted to fill too high, the excess grease will run out of the overflow hole at the front
of the drawer. The drawer is removed by pulling forward.
(USE CAUTION WHEN FILLED WITH HOT GREASE).
