Safety and Installation Instructions
Location of your Barbecue
Most importantly, this is an outdoor appliance. Ensure your barbecue is positioned
safely away from anything that can catch fire.
Under no circumstance is this barbecue to be used indoors. This includes garages or
any other enclosed area.
Clearance from Combustibles: Ensure your barbecue remains at a distance of at least 18”
from any combustible material such as wood, gyprock, paper and plants. Do not store
combustible materials, gasoline or flammable liquids or vapors within 18” of the barbecue.
Adequate Ventilation: Ensure there is adequate ventilation for both the barbecue and cylinder.
This is required not only for proper combustion, but also to prevent gas build up.
Firm Level Surface: Use your barbecue only on a firm level surface. This barbecue is not
designed for recreational vehicles, and should not be installed on a boat or marine craft.
Protection from Weather: Keep the barbecue protected from adverse weather, including rain
and high winds. Polyvinyl covers are available that have been specially designed for this range
of barbecues.
Allow clear access to the entire gas supply hose and regulator.
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
Maintenance Access: When your barbecue is installed, you should be able to access the gas
supply line including the gas piping or hose, gas regulator, gas cylinder and any shut off
valves.
Partial Enclosures: Many backyards have areas that are partially closed off, such as
balconies and pergolas. In some cases, it is hard to decide whether these partially enclosed
areas should be classified as indoor areas, particularly in terms of permanent (non-closable)
ventilation. The gas safety authorities have agreed on the definition of partial enclosures
below.
Safety and Installation Warnings
Please read all instructions before installing or operating your gas grill to prevent injury and
appliance damage.
All gas grills will get hot during use. Use extreme caution when operating the grill.
Do not touch hot surfaces. Always use the handle to open or close the grill.
Close supervision is necessary when this or any appliance is used near
children away from the grill during operation and until the grill has cooled off.
children.
Keep
Do not store any LP cylinder or tank not connected for use with the grill, in the area of this grill
or any other appliance. Never store an LP cylinder or tank indoors, or within the reach of
children.
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
Keep any electrical supply cord and fuel supply hose away from any heated surfaces and
dripping grease.
Do not twist the gas supply hose.
Before each use, visually inspect the gas supply hose for cracks, cuts or excessive wear.
Replace the hose if necessary.
Never test the grill for gas leaks using a lighted match or any other open flame; see leak test
procedures using soap/water solutions - included in following pages of this manual.
The use of accessories, regulators, or components not recommended by the appliance
manufacturer may cause injuries and will void warranty.
Never light the grill with the hood closed and be certain that the burners are positioned and
seated over the gas valves and on the burner support.
Never lean over the cooking surface when lighting or operating the grill.
Use barbecue tools with wood handles and insulated oven mitts when operating the grill.
Gas Specifications: Be sure that the gas supplied to the grill conforms to the model you
purchased. A Natural Gas grill requires natural gas to operate; an LP grill requires liquid
propane gas to operate.
Check the rating label on the left hand side of the unit.
RATING PLATE LOCATION
Never connect the appliance to an unregulated gas supply line. Grills operated without a
regulator are unsafe and will not be serviced until installed properly and safely. Unsafe
operation without a gas regulator will void warranty of the grill.
Grills operated with NG (natural gas) gas must be installed with the NG regulator supplied with
the unit and set to 4.0" water column pressure.
Grills operated with LP (liquid propane) gas must be installed with an LP regulator Not supplied
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
with the unit and set to 11" water column pressure.
The gas valves used in the grills are preset at the factory for Natural Gas or Liquid Propane
operation. Please contact your dealer and use a licensed contractor or installer to convert your
grill to a different gas type.
The self-contained LP system barbeque grill is design certified to be used with a standard 20 lb,
12 1/4" diameter, 18" high cylinder with right handed connection threads and this is the
maximum size LP tank to be used. The cylinder must be marked in accordance with the latest
U.S. Department of Transportation specifications for LP gas cylinders. (DOT. CFR49 or
National Standards Of Canada CAN/CSA-B359 Cylinders, Spheres and Tubes for the
Transportation of Dangerous Goods) a Propane Tank with an ODP ) Overfill Prevention Device)
must be used at all times.
Natural Gas Requirements
Always check the Rating Plate to make sure the gas supply you are hooking up to is the gas
type the grill is manufactured for.
IMPORTANT: Never connect the grill to an unregulated gas supply.
The installation of this appliance must conform with local codes or in the absence of local
codes, to the national fuel gas code, ANSI Z223.1a-1998. Installation in Canada must be in
accordance with the standard CAN/CGA-B149.2, Propane Installation Code.
A licensed contractor or local gas company representative must perform all natural gas
connections.
Ensure that the service supplying the grill is fitted with a shut off valve conveniently positioned
near the grill and giving ease of access.
The grill must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual
shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures
equal to or less than 0.5 psi (3.5 kPa).
The grill and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping
system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressure in excess of 0.5 psi (3.5
kPa).
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
Connection
Slide the grill forward to gain access to the regulator and gas connection point in the rear.
Connect a suitable natural gas flex connector to the grill regulator.
Check the grill controls to ensure all control valves are in the full OFF position.
Turn on the main gas supply and check all connections for leaks using soapy water as
Described in the leak testing procedure section.
Warning: If you see bubbles in the soapy solution at any of the connections, turn off the
gas supply and tighten the connection. If tightening the connection does not seal the
leak, it may be necessary to replace the flex hose.
Checking for Gas Leaks
Perform a leak test at least once a year whether the gas supply cylinder has been
disconnected or not. In addition, whenever the gas cylinder is connected to the regulator or
whenever any part of the gas system is disconnected or replaced, perform a leak test.
As a safety precaution, remember to always leak test your grill outdoors in a well ventilated
area. Never smoke or permit sources of ignition in the area while doing a leak test. Do not
use a flame, such as a lighted match to test for leaks. Use a solution of soapy water.
Prepare a leak testing solution of soapy water by mixing in a spray bottle one part liquid soap
to one part water.
Make sure all the control knobs are in the OFF position .
Turn on the gas
•
On Natural Gas systems, turn the main feed valve to the grill.
•
On LP systems, turn the cylinder valve knob counter clockwise one turn to open.
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
Apply the leak-testing solution by spraying it on joints of the gas delivery system.
Blowing bubbles in the soap solution indicates that a leak is present.
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 cylinder valve if it is damaged.
The cylinder must be discarded to a proper LP tank location and then replaced.
Turn all control knobs back to the full OFF position.
If you are unable to stop a leak turn all control knobs back to the full OFF position, shut off the
gas supply to the grill and release pressure in the hose and manifold by pushing in and turning
any of the control valves one quarter turn counter-clockwise.
On LP systems, remove the cylinder from the grill.
Call an authorized gas appliance service technician or an LP gas dealer.
Do not use the appliance until the leak is corrected.

LP TANK REQUIREMENTS:
a collar to protect the cylinder threads on the customer supplied tank.
-
an arrangement for gas vapor withdrawal.
a safety relief device having direct communication with the vapor space of the cylinder.
a method of mounting.
when not in use, the tank shut off valve should be turned off.
Filling and Refilling LP Gas Cylinders:
WARNING
All purging and refilling of LP gas cylinders must be performed by qualified personnel
in the LP gas industry. Never store a spare LP gas cylinder under or near this
appliance.
Never fill the LP gas cylinder beyond 80 percent full. Failure to follow these instructions
may result in explosion, personal injury or death.
- Turn control knobs and cylinder valve to the OFF position. Unscrew valve.
- Remove cylinder and have it filled at your local qualified propane dealer.
- Once filled, carefully connect the valve and make sure it is secure and not leaking.
- With the control knobs in the OFF position, turn on the cylinder valve.
If you smell gas or hear a hiss of gas escaping from the tank, get away from the tank and do
not attempt to correct the problem yourself. Call the Fire Department immediately.
If your grill has no leak at the cylinder, then re-check for loose connections and retest for leaks
using the method detailed in the following pages with soapy solution.
Do not subject your LP gas cylinder to excessive heat, and always store the cylinder in an
upright position. Never store your LP cylinders indoors.
Make sure that when attaching components, all connections are secured and fully tightened to
prevent leakage.
If one is not already available, it is recommended that an ON-OFF shutoff valve be installed at
the gas supply source, and that the gas supply be turned off when either Natural Gas or LP
Gas grills are not in use.
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
Transporting and Storing LP Gas
Transport only one cylinder at a time. Ensure the cylinder is secured in an upright position with
the control valve turned off and the dust cap in place. Store cylinders outdoors and out of reach
of children. Do not store cylinders in a building, garage, or any other enclosed area.
Leak Testing
All gas piping and connections must be tested for leaks after installation or service. All leaks must
be corrected immediately. Remember-before exchanging an empty bottle for a new one, make
sure all control valves are in the “off” position.
Open the valve (shut-off or ‘ON’ LP tank). Test for leaks by applying liquid soap solution to all joints.
Bubbles forming indicate gas leak.
NEVER USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK FOR LEAKS.
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
Installing the Grill in a BBQ Island
You will need a second person to help you avoid damaging the grill or your barbecue
island.
Before installing a grill in any island or cut out, make sure that the opening is not bigger than
the outside frame of the grill unit. The grill should rest on the lip of the frame.
Pay careful attention to the location of the gas line. It should be routed away from sources of
heat and should make as few bends as possible.
Check to see if the gas line connection will be accessible when grill is installed.
If the gas line connection is not easily accessible when the grill is installed, support the grill
above counter level and attach the gas line to the grill. When the gas connection is made, slide
the grill into the cut out. If the gas line connection is accessible when the grill iinstalled, slide
the grill into the cut out and then attach the gas line.
Be very careful not to kink the gas line when lowering the grill into the cut out.
Keep your fingers away from where the grill will be supported on counter. Your fingers could
become trapped and serious injury could occur.
Check to make sure the grill is level and is supported around the entire outside edge. If the grill
is not level or is unstable, use non-combustible shims under the outside lip to stabilize it.
Perform the leak test procedure as described earlier in this manual.

Safety and Installation Instructions
UNIT INSTALLATION:
Your Summer Sizzler Series Grill comes pre-assembled and requires very little setup. We do
however; recommend the use of professional help during the installation of your unit as
improper installation may affect your warranty.
Remove the unit from the box along with all accessories and check that no damage has
occurred to the unit or any parts.
Burners: Check the burner tubes and remove any obstructions that may be in the ports or
holes. Using cold water and a brush will be sufficient. Make sure all foreign particles are
removed from the burner before use. Make sure the air shutter on the burners is slightly
opened (to about 1/8").
WARNING
For proper operation, burners must be aligned with the valve orifice and seated in the
bracket slot.
This is accomplished by first placing the burner tube shutter hole securely over the
valve orifice and then secure with the screw at the rear of the barbecue.
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
Lighting Instructions
Caution: Never operate the grill unattended. Do not operate the rotisserie burner with the
hood closed.
Prior to using your grill, verify that all of the following is correct:
❒ The burner tube is free of insects and insect nests, webs, etc.
❒ Installation of the proper gas type and regulator settings.
❒ The proper gas connection is complete.
❒ Minimum clearances are maintained.
❒ All packaging has been removed.
❒ All parts and components are properly in place.
❒ An installer-supplied manual gas shut-off valve is fully accessible.
❒ LP hose is clean and inspected for cuts, wear, abrasion, or leaks. Replace if necessary
with a suitable UL, ETL or CSA Listed part with internally threaded connector.
LIGHTING YOUR GRILL
� Become familiar with the safety instructions at the front of this manual. Do not smoke
while lighting the grill or checking the gas supply connections.
� Make sure that all gas connections are securely tightened and have been leak-tested
with a soapy water solution - never with a flame!
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
Lighting the Grill
1. Open the hood.
2. Keep your face as far away from the burners as possible.
3. Slowly rotate the burner knob counter-clockwise to the high position.
4. You will hear a loud click as the electronic lighter produces a spark. Listen for the sound
of the gas igniting. If the burner does not light on the first try, repeat immediately.
5. If the burner does not light in 5 seconds then wait five minutes until the gas clears before
attempting to light it again. Repeat the procedure or try the manual lighting procedure
below.
6. Upon successful lighting, repeat the process on the other burners you wish to light.
7. To shut off the burners, rotate the knob and turn to OFF.
8. It is normal to hear a popping sound when the burners are turned off.
Manually Lighting the Grill
WARNING: Do not use standard matches or cigarette lighters to perform match-lighting
procedures. Serious burns can occur and lighters can explode.
1. Open the hood.
2. If you have just attempted to light the burner, allow five minutes for any accumulated gas to
dissipate.
3. Keep your face as far away from the burners as possible
4. Light and insert a long stem match, holding it near the Lighting Tube.
5. Push in and turn the control knob to HIGH.
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
6. If the burner does not light after five seconds, turn the control knobs to the OFF position.
7. Wait five minutes until the gas clears before attempting to light it again.
8. If the burner does not light after several attempts, immediately close all gas valves and
consult an authorized service technician.
WARNING: “Flashback” may occur in or around the burner tubes. Flashback exhibits a
characteristic “whooshing” sound. If this should occur, immediately turn off your burners, then
remove and clean them with soap and water and a brush until all foreign objects are
removed.
First Time Operation
MAIN BURNERS:
Before cooking with your grill for the first time, burn off any foreign matter and rid the unit of
any odors by operating the unit for about five minutes.
When lit, the flame should have a bluish color to it. It may have a tint of yellow and adjustment
to the air shutters can be made to obtain a blue flame and proper gas flow.
Although the grill can be operated with the hood closed, while fired by the rod-shaped burners
for short periods of time (5-10 minutes), Do Not operate the rotisserie burner (Summer
Sizzler 4 Burner ONLY) with the hood closed. This may damage the grill.
The grill should be preheated with the front panel (main burner) control settings on HIGH for
five minutes with the hood closed.
Temperature Settings
- Use HIGH burner setting for searing, heavy cooking, preheating and cleanup.
- Use other burner settings to create temperatures to suit your personal cooking
preferences.
- Temperatures may vary with outside temperatures and wind conditions.
You can cook poultry and larger cuts of meat slowly if you turn OFF the burner directly under
the food and use adjacent burners to supply heat (a.k.a. “convection cooking” or “indirect
cooking”).
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
Fats and juices that drip down can cause flare-ups. Since some flare-up does impart a
distinctive and desirable flavor, taste and color to foods being grilled, they should be
carefully and reasonably encouraged. Uncontrolled or excessive flare-ups, however, will
damage your food. (When cooking foods with a high fat content, using indirect heat also
greatly reduces flare-ups.)
Fuel (Gas) Conversion Instructions for SUMMER SIZZLER Gas grills.
CAUTION: This should only by performed by a licensed gas professional.
NATURAL GAS TO PROPANE CONVERSION - Main Burners:
Currently all grills are supplied with a regulator set at a pressure of 4” water column.
Fuel Conversion of Main Burners:
1. Determine the existing gas type (LP or Natural gas). The process for changing the gas
type (orifice change-out) is the same for both gases.
2. You must remove all cooking grills and flame tamers to expose the main burners in the
grill.
3. On the bottom rear of each burner is a screw. Remove screw.
4. To remove burner, slide burner toward the rear of the grill and upward. Repeat for each
burner.
5. Where the burner was previously located, connecting to the main valve through the hole in
the basin, should now be evacuated space.
6. Inside the space you will find the end of the valve (toward the front of grill), with an orifice
(brass fitting), screwed into the end of the valve stem.
7. Carefully remove the orifice with a 7mm socket set and extension. (These are extremely
SUMMERSIZZLER by SUMMERSET Instructional Book
fragile! When unscrewing, be extremely gentle, for you could easily break the brass fitting
and have to replace the valve).
8. Once the orifice is removed, replace it with the new change-out orifice, (repeat for all
burners). When re-installing orifice, do not over tighten or you will strip the brass fitting.
Little pressure is needed!!!
9. Replace burners and test for proper flame height. Flame should stand between ½” - 1” on
LOW and 1.5” - 2” on HIGH. (To adjust the LOW flame setting simply light the grill on the
LOW setting and adjust the screw which is located under the knob on the front of the valve
as seen in the diagram below.)
Low flame setting
screw
10. Replace burner flame tamers and cooking grills
11. If necessary, adjust the LOW flame setting screw located under the knob on the front of the
valve
Rear Burner
For the Summer Sizzler 4 Burner, replace the back burner orifice by removing the plate on the
rear of the BBQ and carefully removing the fitting. Replace with the provided conversion back
burner orifice – large brass fitting (differs from small BBQ burner orifice).
NOTE: When converting to LP – remove the Natural gas Regulator that is located under the
bbq and inline with the gas manifold and valves. When converting to Natural Gas add a
Natural gas regulator (4” Water Column Approved Natural Gas Regulator) to the gas grill either
directly on the manifold or placed in line between the Natural gas supply and the barbecue.
On the NG Regulator an arrow shows you the gas flow OR the words “In” – “Out”. If regulator is
placed the wrong way, it will not work. ( Use only a Licensed Professional when converting a
Gas Appliance)
