FITS ALL FIRE MAGIC STAINLESS STEEL
UNIBODY BARBECUES
The Fire Magic infrared (IR) burner is ideal for searing and
fast cooking where needed, and gives a more intense heat than
standard barbecue burners. Replacing 2 main barbecue burners
with the infrared burner is quick and easily done by using the
instructions set out below.
TO MAKE THE INSTALLATION OF THIS UNIT TROUBLE
FREE, READ THIS DOCUMENT THOROUGHLY AND
THEN CAREFULLY FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS
GIVEN. OBSERVE THE CAUTIONS LISTED ON THE
BACK PAGE.
Note: Use your barbecue operating instructions
to identify barbecue parts and locations
mentioned in these instructions.
Remove face screws
Step 1. When they are cold enough to handle, remove
cooking grids, and flavor grids if equipped.
Step 2. Remove the barbecue face screws (Fig. 1-1) &
burner valve knobs. Place to one side for use later.

Step 3. Pull out drip tray and carefully lift face away just
enough (about 4"- 6") to enable you to reach
behind face and disconnect the wires attached
to the spark ignitor (Fig. 1-2). Place the face
safely to one side.

Step 4. Remove the two burners, air shutters, and the
springs (Fig. 1-3) that you will replace with
the IR burner.
Note: The two far left burners should be replaced.
For Elite, Monarch, and Deluxe BBQ’s, the ignitor box
must also be removed. For Elite, Monarch, and Custom
BBQ’s, the crossover box next to the burners must also
be removed.

Step 6. Carefully place the IR burner into the barbecue firebox (Fig. 2-2), ensuring that:
a. the burner gas inlets (Fig. 2-3) face the front of the barbecue, or the right on Deluxe
models.
b1. the black ignitor wire passes up under the inner liner & over the manifold plate (see Fig. 2-7)
OR
b2. for the Deluxe, the wire wraps around the outside of
the burner manifold and follows gas line - do not pass
across inside of the firebox.
c. the IR burner orifice ports fit over the orifices (Fig. 2-5).
d. the rear hangers fit into the slots at the back of the
firebox (see Fig. 2-6).

Step 7. When the IR burner is firmly in place (Fig. 3-1), connect
the IR ignitor wire to the spark ignitor (when you replace the
barbecue face) (Fig. 3-2) in the following configurations:
For Deluxe barbecues:
- plug in the IR burner ignitor wire; re attach the ground wire.
For Regal & Custom barbecues WITHOUT backburners:
- unplug the ground (green) wire from the ignition module
and plug in the IR burner wire.
For Regal & Custom barbecues WITH backburners and a 2-pole
spark module:
- the existing spark module must be replaced with a 4-pole
module (Part # 3199-34). The installation instructions are
supplied with the replacement module.

When it has been replaced, plug in your IR burner wire to
a spare pole, and add a ground wire (ground to barbecue
manifold nut). Do not leave the 4th pole open, as this will affect
the overall sparking potential.
Important:
Fig. 3-2
All plugs on the spark module must have a ground
or ignitor wire attached.
Step 8. Carefully replace the face of the barbecue, checking all wires
are connected to the spark ignitor.

present, replace flavor grids (DO NOT place a flavor grid on IR
burner), cooking grids, and face screws. If no spark is detected
check that the wiring is correctly connected to the spark ignitor, and that battery has sufficient power.
If in doubt replace the battery.
IMPORTANT
Ensure the bare IR ignitor electrode wire does not touch the side of the IR burner as this will cause shorting
and no spark at the electrode tips (see Fig. 3-5).
Step 10. Turn on the gas and ignite your barbecue as normal, ensuring your IR burner lights. There will be
no cross ignition to or from the IR burner. Replace drip tray before cooking. When you are not using
your IR burner, place the IR burner cover over it so that the deep end (longer side) rests at the back
of the burner, and the short end is at the front (see Fig. 3-3 & 3-4).
ALWAYS REMOVE THE IR BURNER COVER BEFORE IGNITING THE IR BURNER
Step 11. Place the silver “Important” label supplied on the oven handle above the IR burner.

INFRARED BURNER OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
FOLLOW THE LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS IN YOUR BARBECUE INSTALLATION AND
OPERATION MANUAL.
REMOVE THE IR BURNER COVER BEFORE IGNITING THE IR BURNER
Note: The infrared burner will take 5-9 seconds to ignite. THIS IS NORMAL. It will take 3-5 minutes to
heat up.
DO NOT TURN THE IR BURNER DOWN BELOW MEDIUM - THE BURNER MAY GO OUT.
IMPORTANT - OBSERVE THESE CAUTIONS:
1 THE INTENSE HEAT FROM AN INFRARED
BURNER CAN CAUSE BURNS.
USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN USING YOUR IR BURNER.
2 DO NOT OPERATE YOUR IR BURNER WITH
THE OVEN/HOOD CLOSED.
3 REMOVE THE IR BURNER COVER BEFORE IGNITING
THE IR BURNER.
4 WHILE COOKING, DO NOT TURN IR BURNER
SETTING DOWN BELOW MEDIUM OR
THE BURNER MAY GO OUT.
5 DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DISASSEMBLE
YOUR IR BURNER.
Important: Attach the supplied “Important” label to your oven/hood handle
for safety and reference.
GENERAL NOTES
1. Infrared heat cooks differently than that produced from traditional burners. IR burners cook with an intense,
direct heat that will immediately sear in the natural juices of your food, resulting in a more moist, flavorful
food. However, the intense heat also reduces the cooking time of your food. If left on the grill too long the
food may become dry or overcooked very quickly.
DO NOT LEAVE A BARBECUE COOKING FOOD UNATTENDED.
2. For large or thick cuts of meat you may wish to use your IR burner to sear the meat and then use
the conventional burners to finish cooking the meat thoroughly. This will keep the meat from being
overcooked.
