Included parts
Follow these instructions to install an infrared burner in
your American Outdoor Grill.
CAUTION: Turn each of the burner control knobs to the
OFF position and close the gas shut-off valve
to the grill. Wait for the grill to cool completely
before beginning this procedure.
TOOLS REQUIRED
• Phillips screwdriver
• 9/16" open -end wrench
• 1/4" nut driver or socket wrench
INSTALLATION
REMOVING THE LEFT MAIN BURNER
1. Starting with a cool grill (see caution above), open the oven
lid and remove the rotisserie rod if installed.
2. Remove the cooking grid and flavor grid from the left-most
burner. Set the cooking grid aside. The flavor grid will not
be used with the infrared, and should be stored way.
3. Remove the left-most burner by first removing the burner clip
(see Fig. 1-1). Lift the back of the burner up and back (see
Fig. 1-2) so that it pulls out from the forward fire wall opening
and the orifice. Retain the burner clip and burner for future
use, if desired.

5. Open the control panel. If needed, refer to the owner's manual
included with your grill.
Note: Pull out the drip tray slightly and use to support the control
panel when opening.

6. Remove the existing igniter box by first loosening the nut on
the faceplate side of the fire wall with a wrench. Disconnect
the wire connector from the electrode and pull it through the
hole (see Fig. 2-1). Unplug the other end and discard the old
wire (see Fig. 2-2).

INSTALLING THE NEW INFRARED BURNER KIT
1. Locate the new igniter wire assembly with the insulator and
feed the insulated wire through the hole in the forward fire
wall left by the old igniter box, as shown in Fig. 3-1.
2. Remove the knock-out next to the igniter hole. Attach the
insulated portion of the igniter wire assembly to the inside
of the fire wall and fasten using the provided screw and the
knock-out hole (see Fig. 3-1 and Fig. 3-2).
3. Position the new infrared burner gas inlet tube in the hole
in the forward fire wall and over the orifice fitting, sliding it
forward from behind the face frame, so the orifice is centered
inside the burner gas tube. Set it gently onto the rear burner
support, making sure the tabs on the back burner bottom
each fit through their respective slots in the rear burner
support. This is critical to the safe function of the grill. (See
Fig. 3-3 and Fig. 3-4.)

4. Connect the bare end of the igniter wire to the bottom of the
electrode assembly on the infrared burner (see Fig. 4-1).
5. Attach the other end of the new igniter wire assembly (the
insulated end) to any connector on the back of the igniter
(see Fig. 4-2).
Important: Test the electrodes for spark before securing the
face to the frame (see also the section on battery
replacement in your manual).
6. Re-install the other ignition wires by plugging them into the
terminals on the igniter module (Fig. 4-2).
7. Affix the conversion label supplied with this kit to the inside
of the fire wall behind the control panel so that it does not
obscure any other labels (Fig. 4-3).

Infrared burner:
• DO NOT place food on the cooking grid until
the IR burner glows orange (Fig. 5-3). Drippings
are heated and evaporate instead of sticking to and
impairing burner function.

• For cleaning purposes; always leave your burner
on (after cooking) for an additional 5 minutes, to
allow for a burnoff period. This is important to
keep your burner clean and operating properly.
As the burner is self cleaning (at full temperature);
avoid the use of cleaners or abrasives.
• When not in use, always cover the infrared burner
with the stainless-steel cover. This protects the
burner from drippings (from other cooking), airborne
particles, and foreign objects (Fig. 5-2).

• Do not strike or scratch the burner ceramic as it
may chip, crack, or break (Fig. 5-2).
Drips and particles evaporate before hitting infrared

burners.
Important: When grilling with the infrared burner,
always place a cooking grid above it.
The cooking grid must be removed for
rotisserie cooking.
To ensure proper operation, all infrared burners
(back and main) must be operated on the HI setting
for a minimum of 10 minutes. Thereafter, the flame
may be lowered as desired.
CAUTION: DO NOT operate your IR burner with the
oven hood closed.
CAUTION: Always monitor the infrared burner flame
when operated on low, as it may blow
out in high-wind conditions.
CAUTION: Never attempt to operate the IR burner
with the protective cover in place.
