The Frigidaire Grill can be installed as a built-in Grill. If installed as a built-in Grill, the Grill surround must be constructed of Non-combustible material.
Planning and Design
Start by identifying the number and size of components you want to include: Grill, side burner, access doors for storage or other items you may wish to furnish such as: refrigerator, sink, warming drawer.
Countertops must be constructed with non-combustible, outdoor-safe materials. Consider outdoor lighting to illuminate after-dark Grilling. For assistance in designing and building your outdoor cooking center, contact a landscape architect or general contractor. Review the drawings on the following pages to determine the exact dimensions and items needed for a built-in Grill. Keep in mind that the gas line hook-up is on the right hand side for the main Grill head. The structure, Grill and support items must be kept level throughout the installation to ensure proper operation.
Take into account convenience and visual impact as well as traffic flow, wind exposure, and the site’s structural suitability. The Grill should never be placed in an enclosed area without an approved ventilation system, or beneath a combustible overhang. Because the Grill exhausts to the rear, it should never be located in front of a window or less than 12” from hard-to-clean surfaces. We recommend keeping your gas supply lines as short as possible for best performance. To ensure a perfect fit, we strongly recommend that you have all components on hand prior to final construction.
Clearance to Non-Combustible Construction
For your safety a minimum of 3” clearance from the back of the Grill to non-combustible construction is required. You should allow at least 6” side clearance to non-combustible construction. The Frigidaire Grill can be placed directly adjacent to non-combustible construction below the cooking surface.
Outboard Ignitor Plate Installation
The electronic ignitor requires a standard size electrical box, (available at a local hardware store), with a minimum depth of 2.5” to be mounted in the structure. It should be placed on the left front or left side of the built-in island, with the center of the ignitor button no more than 3”-5” from the Grill. The ignitor plate, sold separately, fits over the standard electrical box once mounted in the structure. (See drawing on following page). The ground wire for the ignitor needs to be grounded to a metal structure in order for the ignitor to work.
For natural gas Grills, consult your local gas utility company for hook-up requirements. All gas connections should be made by a plumber or a gas supply company. For natural gas installation, the supply line must be at least 1/2” diameter. The rotisserie requires a 110/120 volt electric supply and GFI receptacle. (6.5 amp min.)
If your plan includes a sink, arrange for your plumber to run a water line to the site.
Side cutouts are needed on each side to feed ignitor wires to the ignitor plates and allow access to side gas connections
(Size: 10” high x 5” long, set 1” back from front edge)

Installation in Canada must be in accordance with the Standard Can1-b149.1 and or .2 (installation code for gas burning appliances and equipment) and local codes.
Natural Gas Installation
The gas inlet supply pressure should be between 5” and 14” w.c. A step down regulator is required if the line pressure is in excess of 14” w.c.
Check your local gas utility company or with local codes for instructions on installing gas supply lines. Be sure to check on type and size of run, and how deep to bury the line. If the gas supply line is too small, the grill will not operate correctly.
Any joint sealant used must be an approved type and be resistant to the actions of L.P. gases.
Place the installer supplied shut-off valve in an accessible location to enable the gas supply to be cut off to the unit.
L.P. Gas Installation
Frigidaire Gas Grills that are set to operate with L.P. gas 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 Frigidaire). This assembly is designed to connect directly to a standard 20 lb. L.P. cylinder.
Attach the gas hose assembly to the brass 3/8 flared fitting using an adjustable wrench on the under side of the grill. Tighten securely and attach other end to the propane tank. (sold separately) (See Fig. 13)
LP hose/ regulator supplied with grill.
(Type 1 connector)
L.P. Tank Information
Never use a dented or rusted L.P. tank or cylinder with a damaged valve.
The L.P. cylinder must be provided with a shut-off valve 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/CGA-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.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.”
•When not in use, gas supply cylinder valve is to be in the “OFF” position.
•The tank supply system must be arranged for vapor withdrawal. (LP Tank must be kept in an upright position.)
•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.
•Never fill the cylinder beyond 80% full
•Do not store a spare LP-gas cylinder under or near this appliance
Although all gas connections on the grill are leaked tested at the factory prior to shipment, a complete gas tightness check must be performed at the installation site due to possible mishandling in shipment, or excessive pressure unknowingly being applied to the unit. Periodically check the whole system for leaks, or immediately check 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.
Turn off the burner control knobs.
Turn the top knob of the fuel supply cylinder counterclockwise (right to left) one rotation to open.
Apply the soap solution to connections of the fuel supply assembly. If no soap bubbles appear, the grill is ok to use. 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 recheck).
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.
Wash off soapy solution with cold water and towel dry.
Note: If you cannot stop a gas leak turn off the gas supply and call your local gas utility, or the dealer you purchased the appliance from. If necessary, replace the faulty part with a manufacture recommended replacement part.
Check all gas supply fittings before each use and each time the gas supply cylinder is connected to the regulator. Leak test any time a part of the gas system is replaced. Perform a leak test at least once a year whether or not the L.P. gas supply cylinder has been disconnected.
Using the Grill
Do not use the grill in garages, breezeway, 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 12” 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 3” clearance from the back of the grill to noncombustible construction is required for the lid to fully open.
Do Not leave the grill unattended while cooking!
Make sure the grill has been leak tested and is properly located.

Using the Rotisserie & Side 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 intense heat is magnificent for searing in the natural juices and nutrients found in quality cuts of meats.
Once lit, the rotisserie burner will reach cooking temperatures 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 20 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 motor is straight prior to operating.
Warning: Electrical Grounding Instructions
This appliance (rotisserie motor) is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug for your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
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 facing the back of the grill.
With the rotisserie motor in place and plugged into an electrical outlet it is now ready to operate. After installing rotis rod handle, slide one of the meat forks onto the rod. (prongs facing away from the handle)
Push the rod through the center of the food, 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 wing nuts. It may also be necessary to wrap food with butcher’s string, (never use nylon or plastic string) to secure loose portions.
Once the food is secure, insert the pointed end of the rotis 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 rotisserie motor.
Note: Remove the rotisserie when not in use.

Keep your face as far away from the burner as possible and place a lit, long stem match through the spaces in the grate to the ports of the burner. Position the match near the burner ports and push and turn the control knob to the
Care and Maintenance
The drip tray located below the grill, inside the cart, should be cleaned periodically to prevent heavy buildup of debris.
Note: Allow the drip tray to cool before attempting to clean.
The cooking grates can be cleaned immediately after cooking is completed and after turning off the flame.
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.
The grill is made from a non-rusting stainless steel. 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.
Rear Infrared Burner:
Please light and burn the rear infrared burner at least once a month to ensure there is not a build-up of debris or grease on the burner. This will ensure the ceramic burner will continue to operate as it should.
