where your gas supply shut-off is

a shut-off that is readily and easily accessible. If you smell gas,
check for gas leaks immediately.
Check only with a soap and
water solution. Never check for
gas leaks with an open flame.
SPECIAL NOTE ON USING YOUR GRILL IN WINDY CONDITIONS
As a high-performance gas appliance, your Lynx grill requires
significant amounts of air to support the combustion process.
Your grill has been engineered
to take air in through the control
panel area, and exhaust the combustion byproducts out through
the gap between the front and
rear hoods (see figure 2 at right).
Using your grill in windy conditions can disrupt the proper flow
of air through your grill, leading to reduced performance, or
in certain severe cases, causing
heat buildup in the control panel
area. This can lead to problems
2
such as having the control knobs
melt, or burn hazards when the
control panel surfaces become
too hot to touch.
grill directly are the most likely to
cause problems, although wind
blowing along the hood gap can
also be problematic.
During high wind conditions, it
is best if you don’t use your grill.
If you live in an area that is subject to frequent high winds, or a
steady directional wind, then the
installation of the supplied wind
baffle is advised.
Please note that damage to your
grill resulting from use in windy
conditions, such as melted knobs
or igniter wires, or control panel
discoloration from heat buildup, are excluded from warranty
coverage.
If you have a freestanding grill,
it is best to position the unit so
the prevailing wind blows into
the front control panel, thus
supporting the proper airflow.
Winds hitting the back of the
SPECIAL NOTE FOR LP USE
Never connect any unregulated
gas supply to the grill. The hose
with regulator and Type 1 connection included with your grill
has these safety features:
• The system will not allow gas to
flow until a positive connection
has been made.
•The system has a thermal element that will shut-off the flow
of gas between 115 and 150ºC
(240 and 300ºF).
• The system has a flow limiting
device which, when activated,
will restrict the flow of gas to 10
cubic feet per hour.
NOTE: The cylinder control valve
must be turned off before any
connection is made or removed.
NEVER USE GRILL WITHOUT
FIRST LEAK TESTING THIS
CONNECTION,
FOLLOWING
THE PROCEDURE ON PAGE 11.
Should the large, black, thermally sensitive coupling nut be
exposed to temperatures above
115-150ºC, it will soften, allowing the regulator probe to disengage from the cylinder valve,
thereby shutting off the flow of
gas. Should this occur, do not
attempt to reconnect the nut.
Remove the entire regulator assembly and replace it with a new
one. The cause of the excessive
heat should be determined and
corrected before operating your
grill again. The regulator probe
also contains a flow-sensing element, which will limit the flow
of gas to the regulator to a manageable amount in the event of
a hose or regulator rupture. If it
is evident that the flow control
device has activated, the cause
of the excess flow should be determined and corrected before
using your grill again.
NOTE: Improper lighting procedures can cause the flow control
to activate, resulting in reduced
heat output. If this is suspected,
to reset flow control, shut off
all burner controls and cylinder
valve, wait 30 seconds, then
turn cylinder valve on extremely
slowly, wait five (5) seconds and
turn burner valve on to light.
Figure 3-1 - The included hose
and regulator must be used if
your grill is set-up for LP Gas.
Wind hitting the grill
while in use, especially
winds blowing into
or across this hood
gap, can cause poor
performance and in
some cases can cause
the control panel to
get dangerously hot.
Figure 3-2 - Steady or gusty winds can prevent the normal exhaust of hot gases. Locate your grill
away from prevailing winds and avoid grilling in windy conditions. If needed, install the wind baffle
3
Locating Your Grill
When selecting a suitable location, take into account concerns
such as exposure to wind and
traffic paths. Try to keep all gas
supply lines as short as possible.
Never locate the grill in a building, garage, shed or other such
enclosed area. A carpenter’s
“spirit level” should be used to
assure that the unit is level both
front-to-back and side-to-side.
If it is not level, burner combustion may be erratic or the unit
may not function efficiently. If
the floor is uneven or has a decided slope, re-leveling may be
required after each moving of a
freestanding unit.
be provided (on the Left Side of
most models).
REAR HOOD CLEARANCE:
Clearance is required behind the
grill to allow the front hood to
open (see figure 4-1). 27” and 36”
models require a minimum of 2”
clearance, while 30”, 42” and 54”
models require a minimum of
4” clearance. The grill exhausts
combustion products and cooking greases to the back. Never locate the grill where this exhaust
will be difficult to clean.

BUILT-IN INSTALLATIONS:
The LYNX Built-In Grill is designed
for easy installation into masonry enclosures. For non-combustible applications, the grill drops
into the opening shown in the
cutout detail drawing and hangs
from its counter-top trim. A deck
is not required to support it from
the bottom. When using the insulated jacket in a combustible
enclosure, the jacket must be
supported from the bottom by a
ledge on each side or a full deck
beneath the jacket. Review the
detailed drawing and pay special attention to the provisions
shown for gas line hook-up. It is
recommended that the enclosure have ventilation holes to
prevent gas build-up in the event
of a leak. The deck ledges and
counter should be flat and level.

5) Insert the battery compartment back into the grill and gently push with your index finger
until it engages.
1) Locate the battery compartment. On free standing models
this is located inside the grill cart
on back left. (For 42” free standing models you will need to remove both storage drawers). For
built-in models it is located under
the unit where the installer has
mounted the battery and transformer bracket. (See figure 7-2)

Gas Requirements & Hook-up
Your grill is setup to use either
propane (LP) or natural gas (NAT).
It is very important that the
grill rating plate matches
with your gas supply.
The rating plate is located in one
or more of the following places:
• under the drip tray
• on the heat shield behind the
front panel
• on the inside left cabinet wall
(most freestanding grills)
Do not attempt to operate the
grill on any gas other than what
the grill is orificed for and what
the regulator is set for. Should
you need to convert your grill
for use with a different gas type,
a conversion kit, available from
your dealer, is required.
Never connect an unregulated gas line to the grill.
so as to calculate what size diameter pipe is needed, for the total
length of pipe from the gas main
(at house) to grill hook-up. If the
gas line is too small, the grill will
not function properly. In no case
should pipe less than 3/4” dia. be
used to connect this product.
An installer-supplied gas
shut-off valve must be installed in an easily accessible location. All installer-supplied parts must
conform to local codes
with the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70-1990
and the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z21.58D-2002.
(3.5KPA). The appliance must
be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing its individual manual shut off during
any pressure testing. Do not apply threading compound to the
first two pipe threads as to avoid
clogging of the burner valves
and orifice. Do not put sealant
on any male end of flare fittings.
For built-in installations, it is recommended that any flexible pipe
used be kept as short as possible. For freestanding units using
natural gas, it is strongly recommended that a quick disconnect
kit from Lynx be installed. This
kit, part #LQD, is available from
your dealer.
The appliance and its individual
shut off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply
piping system during any pressure testing of that system at
test pressures above 1/2” PSIG
NATURAL GAS
Fittings shown below are for a
typical installation and are not
supplied with the grill. As each
installation may require different plumbing, Lynx recommends
that this step be performed by
a qualified technician.
The installation of the grill must
conform with local codes or, in
the absence of local codes, to
the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI
Z21.58D-2002 or latest edition. If
installed in Canada, installation
must be in accordance with Gas
Code CAN / CGA-B149.1/.2 and
local codes.

L.P. GAS
Grills orificed for use with L.P. gas
come equipped with an LP hose/
regulator assembly for connection to a standard 20 lb. L.P. cylinder (Type 1). All fittings necessary to attach the hose/regulator
to the grill are included. The L.P.
tank is not included. Operating
pressure: 10.0”W.C.
Turn off LP-gas supply at cylinder
when appliance is not in use.
Fermez l’alimentation en GPL à
la bouteille si l’appareil ne fonctionne pas.
The LP-gas supply cylinder must
be disconnected when this appliance is not in use.
L.P. Tank Requirements
La bouteille de GPL doit être déconnectée si cet appareil ne fonctionne pas.
A dented or rusty L.P. tank may
be hazardous and should be
checked by your L.P. supplier.
Never use a cylinder with a damaged valve. Always check for
leaks after every L.P. tank change
(see page 11).
Your local L.P. filling station
should be equipped with the
proper equipment to fill your
tank. If trading your tank in,
always ensure to obtain only
Type 1 20lb cylinders with an
overfill protection device.
The L.P. gas cylinder must be
constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications
for L.P. gas cylinders of the U.S.
Department of Transportation
(DOT) and designed for use with
a Type 1 system only. Do not
change the regulator/hose assembly from that supplied with
the unit or attempt to use a
5LP-A equipped regulator/hose
assembly with a standard 510
POL tank/valve assembly. The
cylinder must be provided with
a shut off valve terminating in
an L.P. gas supply cylinder valve
outlet specified, as applicable,
for connection Type 1.
L.P. Connections
Cylinders must be stored
outdoors in a well-ventilated area out of the reach of
children. If the appliance
is stored indoors, the L.P.
cylinder must be removed
from the appliance, and
stored outside.
Connect the 3/8” flare end of the
L.P. hose to the brass adapter on
the manifold (as shown in figure 9-1). Connect the Regulator
to the tank (with the tank valve
fully closed). Although the flow
of gas is stopped when the Type
1 system is disconnected, you
should always turn the L.P. tank
main valve off after each use
and during transport of the tank
or unit. Insert the regulator inlet
into the tank valve and turn the
black coupler clockwise until the
coupler is tight. Do not overtighten the coupler.
To disconnect the coupler, first
make sure the main tank valve
is turned off. Grasp the coupler
and turn counter clockwise. The
inlet will then disengage.
Gas Line Purging
To purge the L.P. gas line, make
sure all controls are in the OFF
position. Turn the main tank
valve on SLOWLY and turn one
burner control valve on the unit
to the “light” position (DO NOT
LITE GRILL). Leave control ON for
about 20 seconds to allow the
air in the system to purge. Wait
5 minutes before attempting to
light the burners.
Do not attempt lighting the grill
within 5 minutes after purging!

Precautions for Using Your Grill
READ THIS MANUAL CAREFULLY AND COMPLETELY
BEFORE USING YOUR GRILL
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF
FIRE, BURN HAZARD OR
OTHER INJURY.
Safety Precautions
1) NEVER LEAVE THE GRILL UNATTENDED WHILE COOKING.
2) Avoid wearing loose-fitting
garments or long sleeves while
using the grill. Never touch the
grill racks, hood or immediate
surrounding metal surfaces with
your bare hands as these areas
become extremely hot during
use and could cause burns.
3) Use an insulated glove or mitt
when opening and operating
the grill. Open grill lid slowly to
allow heat and smoke to escape
before fully opening.
4) Never lean over hot grill surface or look directly into the grill
when attempting to light. The
grill hood must be fully opened
when lighting.
5) Do not heat unopened food
containers as pressure build-up
may cause container to burst.
8) Never operate the grill in a 16) Prior to using grill ensure
windy area. If windy conditions
exist, install a suitable windbreak
(see page 2 for details).
9) Be aware that cooking excessively fatty meats and other such
products will cause flareups. Internal fires or damage caused by
flare-ups or the grill being left
unattended while cooking, are
not the responsibility of LYNX
and any resulting damage is not
covered under the terms and
conditions of our warranty.
10) Never grill without the drip
pan in place. The drip pan must
be pushed all the way to the back
of the grill. Without the drip pan
in place, hot grease could leak
downward and produce a fire or
explosion hazard.
11) Grease is extremely flammable. Let hot grease cool down
before attempting to handle
or dispose of it. The drip tray
should be cleaned of grease on
a regular basis.
12) Do not use the grill until a
leak check has been performed
(see page 11).
13) Do not operate grill under
the influence of alcohol or drugs.
6) Do not use aluminum foil to 14) If equipped, never place
line grill racks or drip pans. This
will alter combustion airflow or
trap excessive heat in the control
area. This can result in melted
knobs and ignition modules.
These damages are specifically
excluded from your warranty.
7) Never use charcoal in the grill.

more than 30 pounds on a side
shelf. Do not lean on shelves.
15) If any burner does not light
or goes out during operation,
turn off all gas control knobs
with hood open and wait five (5)
minutes before attempting to
re-light.
WA R N I N G
Spiders and insects can
nest in the burners of
this or any other grill,
and cause gas to flow
from the front of the
burner. This is a very
dangerous
condition
which can cause a fire to
occur behind the valve
panel, thereby damaging the grill and making
it unsafe to operate.
If your grill has been
stored or unused for a
prolonged period, it is
recommended that the
burners be removed, inspected, and cleaned if
needed according to the
instructions on page 19.
Leak Testing
To Perform Leak Test
1) Create a soapy solution of
equal parts mild dishwashing
detergent and water.
2) Confirm that all control knobs
are in the off position.
3) Turn on fuel supply. For natu-

ral gas, turn valve handle 1/4 turn
to align with gas flow. For L.P.,
turn cylinder valve knob counter
clockwise one full rotation.
4) Apply soap solution generously by paint brush or squirt
bottle on all connections and
fittings, as indicated in figures 1
and 2.
5) If “growing” bubbles appear
on any of the connection points,
then you have detected a gas
leak. IMMEDIATELY turn off the
gas supply by reversing step 3.
Fixing a Gas Leak
1) After shutting off gas supply, push in and turn on control
knobs to release pressure, then
turn the knobs back to off.
Figure 11-1 - Leak testing points when using natural gas.
2) Wash off soapy solution with
cold water and towel dry.
3) Stop a leak by tightening
the loose joint, or by replacing
the faulty part with a replacement part recommended by the
manufacturer. DO NOT attempt
to repair the L.P. cylinder valve if
it should become damaged; the
cylinder MUST BE REPLACED.
4) Perform a new leak test to ensure that no leaks are present.

BURNER TYPE IDENTIFICATION
Depending on the model, your Lynx grill may be equipped with up to three different burner types. The
operation of each burner type varies, so it is important to familiarize yourself with all three.
Brass - This is the standard
main grill burner found under
the briquette trays
12
ProSear - This is a high
intesnity infrared burner that
is optional on most models.
Rotis - This is an infrared
burner found in the rear of
the grill above the grill racks.
Using the Grill
Grilling requires high heat for
searing and proper browning.
Most foods are cooked at the
“HI” heat setting for the entire
cooking time (with the lid open).
However, when grilling large
pieces of meat or poultry, it may
be necessary to turn the heat to
a lower setting after the initial
browning. This cooks the food
through without burning the
outside. Foods cooked for a long
time or foods basted with a sugary marinade may need a lower
heat setting near the end of the
cooking time.
HOW TO SEAR
Searing locks in flavor and juices
while allowing the outer surface
to absorb smoke and food aroma that is produced as grease
and drippings are vaporized by
the burner. The result is a crisp,
flavorful outside with a tender,
juicy inside. While the brass
burners in your grill are capable
of producing searing heat, the
ProSear infrared burner is specifically designed for this purpose.
following the lighting instructions on pages 14-15.
1) Properly pre-heat the grill by 2) Once grill has been preheated,
following the lighting instructions on pages 14-15.
2) Leaving the burners set to “HI”,
place food on grill grids for 2-3
minutes per side, or until food is
easily turned without sticking.
3) Adjust the burners to a lower
setting and continue cooking until desired doneness is reached,
turning the food as needed.
turn off any burners not required
for cooking. The lid should be
closed as much as possible while
using the indirect method.
3) Place the food on the grill and
cook to the desired doneness.
Adjust heat setting as required
to maintain desired temperature.
INDIRECT COOKING
Indirect cooking is achieved by
placing the food only on one side
of the grill. Leave the burner below the food “OFF” and an adjacent grill burner on “HI”. Keep the
hood closed as much as possible
and regulate the heat with the
burner control, monitoring internal temperature with the hood
thermometer (if equipped).
1) Properly pre-heat the grill by
WA R N I N G
Never place food over
a ProSear burner that
is not lit and pre-heated. Food particles and
grease dripping onto a
cold ProSear burner can
clog ports and damage
the ceramic burner. This
damage is not covered
by your warranty.
PRE-GRILLING CHECKLIST
Before lighting the grill, perform the following checks to ensure safe operation:
o

Lighting the Brass Burners
WA R N I N G
Never attempt to light
grill if odor of gas is present. Hood must be open
when lighting. Keep face
and body as far from
grill as possible when
lighting. Always wait at
least 5 minutes before
attempting to relight a
hot burner.
Before proceeding, make sure
you have completed the checklist on the previous page. These
checks should be performed before each use of the grill.
Follow these steps to light the
main brass grill burners:

15
Using the Rotisserie
The rotisserie system consists of
three main parts - the motor, the
skewer which holds the food,
and the infrared rotis burner. The
rotisserie evenly cooks large cuts
of meat by turning them continuously in front of a high-intensity burner. The rotis is capable of
turning up to a 25 lb. cut of meat.
THE MOTOR
The rotisserie motor runs on 12
volt DC power that is supplied
by the grill. To power the motor,
plug the “L” shaped jack of the
power cord into the motor, and
plug the other end into the jack
provided on the left side of the
grill (see figure 16-1). This hookup allows for simple installation
and removal of the motor for
storage when not in use.
THE SKEWER
To load the skewer, slide one of
the meat holders onto the skewer. Push the skewer through the
center of the food, then slide the
second meat holder onto the
skewer. Center the food to be
cooked on the skewer then push
the meat holders firmly together.
Tighten the thumb screws (use
pliers if necessary). It may also be
necessary to wrap the food with
butchers string (never use nylon
or plastic string) to secure any
loose portions.
Remove the warming rack and,
if needed, remove the grill racks
and briquette trays to gain better clearance. It is normal for the
skewer to flex when cooking
large foods. Place a basting pan
beneath the food for basting
and to ease cleaning.
Never operate a grill burner
with a basting pan in place.

rotisserie system.
THE INFRARED BURNER
The location of the rotis burner
makes it more susceptible to
strong wind conditions (more
so than the main grill burners).
For this reason you should avoid
operating the rotis during windy
conditions. As an added safety
feature, the burner is equipped
with an automatic safety valve
which will not allow gas to flow
to the rotis burner if it is not
properly lit. To light the rotis
burner, follow this procedure:
The skewer for the rotis is assembled into the motor assembly
by placing the pointed end into
the motor, and resting the short,
round end (threaded end on 27”
models) onto the support at the
opposite side of the grill. With
the skewer pushed into the motor, it should rest on the bracket.
1) Open hood completely. Do
positions to accomodate larger
cuts of meat or to allow slower
cooking (see figure 16-2). Any
food to be cooked should be a
minimum of 2” from the surface
of the infrared burner.
Purge if needed (see page 9).
not attempt to light grill with the
hood closed.
2) Load food onto skewer, and

continued...
6) If burner does not light, turn
knob to OFF, wait 5 minutes to
allow gas to dissipate, and repeat step 5 above.
Once lit, the rotis burner should
reach cooking temperatures in
about 1 minute. The glow will
even out in about 5 minutes.
If the burner will only stay lit with
the control knob depressed, the
thermocouple position may
need to be adjusted (see figure
17-1) to ensure proper function.
To adjust, ensure that only the
last 1/4 to 1/2” of thermocouple
extends over ceramic and that it
is located close to the surface.
Figure 17-1 - Proper rotis
thermocouple position.
Always use basting pan
under the rotisserie to
keep drippings off the
burners and briquettes.
Never operate main grill
burners with basting
pan in place. Allow to
cool completely before
removing from grill.
NEVER ATTEMPT TO ADJUST
WHEN THE BURNER IS HOT.
MATCH LIGHTING
If the ignition system fails to light
the burner, it can be match lit according to the procedure found
on page 14.
Using the Smoker Box
By adding wood smoke to the
grilling process, meats and vegetables will have a more traditional BBQ flavor. In order to use the
smoker box, remove the first set
of grill racks and set the smoker
box in the opening so that the
front and rear tabs rest on the
grill frame, and replace grill rack.
WA R N I N G
Never use smoker box
over a ProSear burner.
Wood Chips
There are many wood chips available and selection is based on
personal taste. The most common chips used are mesquite or
hickory. Always soak the chips in
water prior to putting them into
the box. Use the High position
to start the chips smoking, then
reduce the heat to a lower level
to prevent them from drying out
and flaming. If the wood chips
do flame up, add a small amount
of water through the recessed
hole in the lid to extinguish the
flame. Use caution when adding
water to a hot box to avoid steam
burns. This tray may also be filled
with water to produce steam.
Whether smoking or steaming,
the grill should remain closed as
much as possible to maximize
the effect. During extended
roasting periods, it is normal to
add fresh wood chips and water
to the box several times. Limit
the amount of times the hood
is opened, as each opening can
add as much as 15 minutes to
the cooking time.
CAUTION: Handle the smoker
box with care. The cover becomes extremely hot when in
use. Use sturdy, properly insulated gloves or dry potholders.
It is recommended that a high
quality meat thermometer be
used when smoking, as cooking
times can vary greatly by cut of
meat or environmental factors.

Cleaning the Grill
The best way to keep your grill
looking great is to use a cover,
supplied by Lynx, when the grill
is not in use. While stainless steel
is very durable, some care is
required to ensure the long life
of your grill.
STAINLESS STEEL
Your grill has a directional polished grain - any cleaning should
be carried out along this grain
and not across it.
The grill is made from non-rusting and non-magnetic stainless
steel. After initial usage, areas
of the grill may discolor from
the intense heat given off by the
burners - this is normal. There
are many different stainless steel
cleaners available. Always use
the mildest cleaning procedure
first, scrubbing in the direction
of the grain. To touch up noticeable scratches in the stainless
steel, sand very lightly (at your
own risk) with dry 100 grit emery
paper in the direction of the
grain. Specks of grease can gather on the surfaces of the stainless
steel and bake on to the surface
and give the appearance of rust.
To aid removal, use a fine to
medium grit non-metallic abrasive pad (Scotch Brite is good) in
conjunction with a stainless steel
cleaner. Always rub in the direction of the grain.
The best maintenance for stainless steel is to wipe it down with
a damp cloth. This is especially
true if a swimming pool is located near the grill, as prolonged
18
contact with chlorinated water
can pit the stainless steel. This
damage is not covered by your
warranty. Never use steel “Brillo”
pads or similar products as these
will leave traces of material
behind which will quickly rust
and is not a defect in the Grill.
Allow the grill to cool completely, then remove the drip tray by
pulling it out from the grill until
it stops, then lifting the front
edge until the drip tray comes
free. Clean with hot soapy water
or commercial cleaning product,
rinse, dry and reinstall in grill.
GRILL RACKS
NEVER USE GRILL WITHOUT DRIP
TRAY PROPERLY INSTALLED.
The easiest way to clean the grill
racks is to do so immediately
after cooking and turning off
the burners. Wearing a long BBQ
mitt to protect your hand from
steam, dip a brass bristle brush
in hot water and scrub the grill
rack. Dip the brush frequently
as the steam aids the cleaning
process. If grill is allowed to cool
before cleaning, cleaning will be
more difficult.
NEVER USE WATER TO CLEAN THE
GRILL RACK ABOVE A PROSEAR
BURNER. LIQUID FALLING ONTO
AN UNLIT PROSEAR BURNER CAN
CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE.

PROSEAR WILL NORMALLY BURN
CLEAN DURING THE 5 MINUTE
CLEANING BURN AFTER USE. IF
GRILL RACK REQUIRES FURTHER
CLEANING, ALLOW TO COOL
AND REMOVE FROM GRILL.
DRIP TRAY
The drip tray should be cleaned
after every use of the grill.
DO NOT ALLOW EXCESS GREASE
OR LIQUIDS TO ACCUMULATE
IN THE DRIP TRAY AS THIS MAY
CREATE A FIRE HAZARD.
BRIQUETTE TRAYS
Although they normally burn
clean with use, it may occassionally be necessary to clean the briquette trays. After allowing the
grill to cool completely, remove
the grill racks, then remove the
briquette trays by lifting the
front edge and pulling toward
you. Set the trays upside-down
onto their mounting points, and
operate the grill burners on high
for 20-30 minutes to burn the
briquettes clean. If it becomes
necessary to replace any or all
the briquettes, replacements
are available from your dealer.
Replace briquettes following the
instructions on page 6.
WA R N I N G
Always keep the area
surrounding the grill
free from all combustible materials, liquids,
vapors, debris and obstructions. Maintain at
least 3” clearance around
grill for proper airflow.
Burner Cleaning & Adjustment
Before removing burners
ensure the gas supply is off
and the knobs are in the
“off” position. Make sure
the grill has completely
cooled before proceeding.
and stable with no yellow tips,
excessive noise or lifting. If any
of these conditions exist, check
if the air shutter or burner ports
are blocked by dirt, debris, or
spider webs. If needed, proceed
with air shutter adjustment.
To Remove Brass Burners:
Remove the grill racks and briquette trays. Grasp the burner,
pull it up and slightly to the rear
of the unit so the burner head
comes off the brass orifice at
the front. Angle the burner sideways, and remove. Be careful not
to upset the air shutter position.
Brass Burner Cleaning:
Clean the exterior of the burner
with a wire brush. Clear stubborn scale with a metal scraper.
Clear any clogged ports with a
straightened paper clip. Never
use a wooden toothpick as it
may break off and clog the port.
Shake out any debris through
the air shutter. Use a flashlight
to inspect the burner inlet to ensure it is not blocked. If obstructions can be seen, use a metal
wire coat hanger that has been
straightened out to clean.
Brass Burner Air Adjustment
Each grill burner is tested and
adjusted at the factory prior to
shipment; however, variations
in the local gas supply or a conversion from one gas to another
may make it necessary to adjust
the burners. The flames of the
Grill burners should be visually checked and compared to
fig. 19-1. Flames should be blue

The amount of air which enters
a burner is governed by a sheet
metal disk at the inlet called an
air shutter. It is locked in place by
a set screw which must be loosened prior to lighting the burner
for adjustment (see fig. 19-2).
To Adjust:
1) Be extremely careful as the
burner may be very hot.
2) If the flame is yellow, indicating insufficient air, turn the air
shutter counterclockwise to allow more air to the burner.
3) If the flame is noisy and tends
to lift away from the burner, indicating too much air, turn the air
shutter clockwise.

For day-to-day cleaning, see instructions on page 15. If burner
inlet is obstructed, use a metal
wire coat hanger that has been
straightened out to clean.
WA R N I N G
IT IS CRITICAL TO CENTER EVERY BURNER ON
ITS ORIFICE AND FOR
THE BURNERS TO REST
LEVEL AND NOT ROCK. IF
THE BURNERS ARE NOT
CENTERED CORRECTLY,
A VERY DANGEROUS
CONDITION EXISTS THAT
CAN CAUSE PERSONAL
INJURY AND DAMAGE
TO THE UNIT.
4) Once adjusted, turn the burner off and allow to cool. Remove
burner, tighten set screw and
reinstall the briquette trays and
grill racks.

Troubleshooting
If the Grill does not function
properly, use this checklist before
contacting Lynx for service.
GRILL WON’T LIGHT
If the igniters are working correctly, next determine if gas is
reaching the burners. Ensure the
gas supply is turned on, and
that there are no leaks, according to the procedure on page 11.
Attempt to match-light a burner
according to the procedure on
page 14. If the burner will light
with a match, then the igniter
may not be functioning correctly, or may not be adjusted
correctly. See above or call for
service. If the burner will not
match light, and the gas supply
has been confirmed, check the
burner for blockages according
to the procedure on page 19.
YELLOW FLAME/GAS SMELL
IF YOU SMELL GAS WHILE
THE GRILL IS OPERATING,
IMMEDIATELY TURN OFF ALL
BURNERS. Perform a leak test,
check for blockages and check
the air shutter adjustment
according to page 19.
NOTE: If the grill is operating in
a dusty area or if heavy grease
is present, some orange tips on
the burner flame are normal.
LOW/INSUFFICIENT HEAT
Ensure that adequate preheat
time has elapsed. Brass burners
should preheat for at least 15
minutes with the hood closed;
ProSear burners should preheat
for at least 3 minutes.
20
If adequate preheat time was
allowed, check the gas supply
for a damaged and/or kinked
supply line. Replace if necessary.
On LP units, a mostly empty tank
may not have sufficient pressure to run the grill at high heat.
Replace with a full tank. Make
sure that the regulator/hose
assembly being used is the unit
supplied with the grill. On natural gas units, ensure that the
supply line is at least 3/4” diameter. Check the gas supply pressure to ensure at least 7” W.C.
(0.25 psi) for natural gas, 11” W.C.
(0.4 psi) for LP.
If gas supply is adequate, check
burners for blockages and check
flame characteristics according
to the procedure on page 19
and clean or adjust air shutter if
needed. Check also that there is
no pressure being applied to the
regulator attached to the back
of the grill. This regulator contains a flexible diaphragm and
should not be allowed to touch
the grill body or surroundings.
Check to make sure that the
burners and the drip tray are
clean and free from obstructions. Clean if necessary. NOTE:
No part of the grill should ever
be lined with aluminum foil as
it will interfere with airflow and
can cause a low heat condition.
BURNER BLOWS OUT
First determine if the problem
is being caused by location.
If location is subject to high
winds, reposition grill to provide
some protection. Check the gas
supply and flame characteristic according to the procedure
under Low/Insufficient Heat.
Check to ensure that the burners
are correctly positioned in the
grill according to the procedure
on page 19. Correctly installed
burners should be seated firmly
with no side-to-side movement.
ROTISSERIE WON’T LIGHT
Follow the same procedure as
described above for the grill
burners to diagnose problems
with the Rotisserie IR burner. The
IR burner flame may be hard to
see in bright sunny conditions.
LIGHTS WON’T OPERATE
Ensure that the grill has AC
power by removing the D cell
battery according to the instructions on page 7, and then pressing a burner control knob to test
the spark igniter. If the igniters don’t function, no AC power
is connected. If the igniters do
function, replace the bulb.
Light Bulb Replacement
TO CHANGE LIGHT BULBS
Remove the glass light cover by
grasping the edge of the glass
and gently prying it off. It may
be necessary to remove one
screw. Pull the old bulb straight
out from socket - do not twist.
Replacement bulbs are halogen,
12 volt, T3 type with a G4 bipin
base. The 54” grill uses two 5W
bulbs, all others use one 10W.
avoid touching the
glass of new bulbs.
Install new bulb by gently pressing it into the socket. Replace
glass cover by gently snapping
back into place.
Figure 21-1 - Remove glass cover to access work light bulb.
Replacing the Briquettes
TO REPLACE BRIQUETTES
The special Lynx ceramic briquettes are secured to the trays
with stainless steel clips. To insert a briquette into the tray, it
is necessary to remove the clip
from one side of the empty slot.
This is done by bending the retaining tabs for the clip located
on the back side of the briquette
tray as shown below.
WA R N I N G
The edges of the clips
may be sharp. Pliers
MUST be used to remove
clips - never attempt to
remove them by hand as
injury may result.

22
LP Gas
Lighting the Side Burner or LPSGE
WA R N I N G
Never attempt to light
burner if odor of gas
is present. Lid must be
open/off when lighting.
Keep face and body as
far from unit as possible
when lighting. Always
wait at least 5 minutes
before attempting to relight a hot burner.
Before proceeding, make sure
you have completed a leak test.
This check should be performed
before each use of the side burner or grill extender.
Follow these steps to light the
burners:
1) Open or remove lid completely. Do not attempt to light burners with the lid closed.
2) Check to ensure that all burner control knobs are set to OFF.
Test ignition system by pressing
control knob in and listening
for clicking sound of igniter. If
no sound occurs, proceed with
troubleshooting or match-light
the burner.
3) Turn on main gas supply.
Purge if needed (see page 9).
4) Push in and turn burner control knob to LITE. Hold knob in
for 5 seconds.
5) If burner does not light, turn
knob to OFF, wait 5 minutes to
allow gas to dissipate, and repeat step 4 above.
PREHEATING THE LPSGE
LOW HEAT ADJUSTMENT
Before cooking, always preheat
the ProSear burner for best results. To preheat, light the burner, set to HIGH and allow to preheat until the burner glows red,
usually about 2-3 minutes.
NOTE: ADJUSTMENT IS
FOR SIDE BURNERS ONLY.
PROSEAR BURNERS ARE
PRESET AT THE FACTORY
AND SHOULD NOT BE ADJUSTED.
DO NOT LEAVE THE UNIT
UNATTENDED
DURING
THE PREHEAT CYCLE OR AT
ANY TIME WHILE IN USE.
DO NOT ALLOW UNIT TO
PREHEAT FOR PROLONGED
PERIODS OF TIME. OVERHEATING THE UNIT CAN
CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE
UNIT AND TO PERSONAL
PROPERTY.
MATCH LIGHTING
If burners will not light after several attempts, the burners can be
match lit. If you’ve just attempted to light the burner with the
igniter, allow 5 minutes for any
accumulated gas to dissipate.
Make sure all knobs are in the
OFF position. Keep your face as
far away from the unit as possible. With the lid removed, pass
the alternate lighting rod with a
lit paper match installed to the
ports of the burner. Push and
turn the corresponding control
knob of the burner to LITE. If the
burner does not light in 4 seconds, turn the knob off and wait
5 minutes before attempting
again.
The valves on the side burner
feature an adjustable low setting. Due to fluctuations in gas
pressure, heating value or gas
conversion, you may feel it necessary to adjust gas flow in the
low position.
1) Light the burner.
2) Turn the control knob to the
lowest setting (all the way counter-clockwise).
3) Remove the knob.
4) While holding the valve shaft
with pliers, insert a thin flat
tipped screwdriver into the shaft
and while viewing the burner,
adjust to a minimum stable
flame (see figure 23-1).
