Before Your First Cookout
Repainting Your Grill
• Lightburners, check to make sure they are Iit, close the Iid and
warm up grill on HIGH for t5 minutes. Curing of paint and parts
will produce an odor only on first lighting.
After extended use and exposure to weather,paint on grill may
deteriorate or become spotted. Although this detracts from
grill's appearance, it will not impairits performance.
Burner Flame Check
To refinish your grill brush outside of gritl lid and bottom with
wire brush and lightly sand with fine grit sandpaper. Sanding
allows new paint to adhere more easily. Wash griII Iid and
bottom with soap and water to remove dust and grease. Do not
use a gritl cleaner on outside of grill Wipe with vinegar.
Refinish outside with heat-resistant paint. Do not paint inside
of grill.
• Lightburner, rotate knobs from HI to LO. You should see a
smalIer flame in LO position than seen on Hi. Always check
flame prior to each use. Perform flame check on sideburner. If
only low flame is seen refer to "Sudden drop or tow flame" in
the Troubleshooting Section.
NATURAL
Turning Grill Off
• Turn alI knobs to O
position. Turn LP tank of_by turning
OPD hand wheeI clockwise to a fuII stop.
Ignitor Check
• Turn gas off at LP tank. Press and hold ignitorbutton. "Click"
should be heard and spark seen each time between collector
box or burner and electrodes. Sea "Troubleshooting" if no click
or spark.
HAZARD
• SPIDERS
FACT: Sometimes spiders and other small insectsclimb into
the burner tubes attached to the burners. The spiders spin
webs, build nests and lay eggs. The webs or nests can be
very small, but they are very strong and can block the flow of
gas. Ctean burners prior to use after storing, at the beginning
of grilling season or after a period of one month not being
used.
Valve Check
• Important: Make sure _asis off at LP tank before checking
valves. Knobs lock in _
position. To check valves, first
push in knobs and release, knobs should spring back. if knobs
do not spring back, ra#aco valve assembty before using grill.
Turn knobs to LO position then turn back to O
position.
Valves should turn smoothly.
Hose Check
• Before each use, check to see if hoses are cut or worn.
Replace damaged hoses before using grill. Use only identical
Kenmore replacement valve/hose/regulator assembly.
"rypieal spiderwebsinside burner.
Spider guards are on the air intakes in an effort to reduce this
problem, but it will not eliminate it! An obstruction can result
in a "flashback" (a fire in the burner tubes). The grill may still
light, but the obstruction does not allow full gas flow to the
burners.
IF YOU EXPERIENCE THE FOLLOWING:
General Grill Cleaning
t. Smell gas.
• Do not mistake brown or black accumulation of grease and
smoke for paint, interiors of gas grills are not painted at the
factory (and should never be painted). Apply a strong solution
of detergent and water or use a gritl cleaner with scrub brush
on insides of grilI lid and bottom. Rinse and allow to completely
air dry. Do not apply a caustic grillloven cleaner to painted
surfaces.
2, Burner(s) will not light.
• Plated wire grates: Wash grates and V-bar with concentrated
gritl cleaner or use soap and water solution. Dry thoroughly and
store indoorsbetween cookouts.
• Plastic parts: Wash with warm soapy water and wipe dry.
A Do not use citrisoi, abrasive cleaners, degraasers or a
concentrated grill cleaner on plastic parts. Damage to and
failure of parts can result.
• Porcelain grates: Because of glass-like composition, most
residue can be wiped away with baking soda/water solution or
specially formulated cleaner. Use nonabrasive scouring powder
for stubborn stains.
3. A small yellow flame from burner (should be blue).
4, Fire coming from around or behind control knob.
STOPI
Immediately turn off gas at LP tankl
A After a burner tube fire, you must inspect the hose and
do a "Leak Test" to assure no damage has occured to
the parts.
SOLUTION:
Wait for grill to cool.
Follow the "Cleaning The Bumer Assembly' instructions.
Clean burners often. Use a 12" pipe cleaner to clean out the
burner tubes. You may also force a stream of water from a
hose nozzle through burner tubes to clean them.

Cleaning The Burner Assembly
Follow these instructions to clean and/or replace parts of burner
assembly or if you have trouble igniting grill.
t. Turn gas off at control knobs and LP tank.
2. Remove cooking grate and V-bar.
3. Remove grease can from beneath grill. Beneath grill bottom,
disconnect ignitor wire from electrode.
4. Remove screw holding collector box. Note whichhote on
collector box used for attaching to burner. Remove collector
box and ciean ceramic portion of electrode with rubbing

5. Under contret panel, disengage burner springs from burner
tubes. Be not remove springs from valves.
6. To remove burner, slide backwards, lift up and out of grill
7. Clean outside of burner with soap and water. Lay burner
upside down on fiat surface. Force a stream of water through
tubes. Make sure water comes out of all burner holes. Open
ciogged holes with a thin wire. Shake out excess water and
examine holes. Due to normal wear and corrosion, some
holes may become enlarged, if any targe cracks or holes are
found reptace burner.
.
If gritl is to be stored, coat burner tightly with cooking oil.
Wrap in protective cover to keep insects out. if not storing grill
after cieaning, hold burner at an angle and insert into grill
bottom.

Storing Your Grill
Food Safety
• Clean cooking grates.
Food safety is a very important par[ of enjoying the outdoor
cooking experience. To keep food safe from harmfot bacteria,
foIIow these four basic steps:
• Stere in dry Iocation.
• When LP tank is connected to grilI, store outdoors in weIIventilated space and out of reach of children.
• Cover grill if stored outdoors.
• Store grill indoors ONLY if LP tank is turned off and
disconnected, removed from gritl and stored outdoors.
• When removing griiI from storage follow "Cleaning Burner
Assembly" instructions before starting grill.
Birect Cooking
Use both burners to heat the grill for searing of the meat. Once
the meat has been seared, turn the burners to LO to cook meat
thoroughly.
Indirect Cooking
Once the gdlI is preheated, turn one of the burners off and place
your meat on the grate above the burner that is NOT burning.
This indirect method of cooking allows you to stow cook poultry
or Iarge cuts of meat without the touch of a direct name.
• Always cook with the lid closed.
• Due to weather conditions, cooking times may vary. During cold
and windy conditions the temperature setting may need to be
increased to insure sufficient cooking temperatures.
1. Ignite the LEFT burner. For slow cooking, adjust the controt
knob to the LO setting. For faster cooking, adjust the controt
knob to the HI setting.
2. Place the food on the RIGHT side of the cooking grate.
3. Because the heat source is onty on one side, the feed should
be rotated at least once during cooking to insure even
cooking. Use a meat thermometer to determine when the food
is done.
Clean: Wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with hot soapy water
before and after handling raw meat and poultry.
Separate: Separate raw meats and poultry from ready-tc_eat
foods to avoid cross contamination. Use a clean piatter and
utensils when removing cooked foods.
Cook: Cook meat and poultry thoroughly to kill bacteria. Use a
thermometer to ensure proper internal food temperatures.
Chill: Refrigerate prepared foods and ieftovers promptly.
For more information call: USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at
1-800-535-4555 In Washington, DC (202) 720-3333, 10:00 am4:00 pm EST.
HowTo Tell If Meat Is Grilled Thoroughly
• Meat and poultry cooked on a grill often browns very fast on the
outside. Use a meat thermometer to be sure food has reached
a safe intemaI temperature, and cut into food to check for
visual signs of doneness.
• Whole poultry should reach t80 ° F; breasts, 170° R Juices
should run clear and flesh shouid not be pink.
• Hamburgers made of any ground meat or poultry shoutd reach
160° F, and be brown in the middle with no pink juices. Beef,
veal and lamb steaks, roasts and chops can be cooked to 145°
R All cuts of pork should reach 160° R
• NEVER partially grill meat or poultry and finish cooking later.
Cook food completely to destroy harmfat bacteria.
• When reheating takeout foods or foliy cooked meats iike hot
dogs, grill to 165° F, or until steaming hot.

Cooking Chart
Cooking times and temperatures may vary according to specific recipes, cooking conditions or barbecue equipment used. Take these
factors into consideration to insure best results. If you use the indirect cooking method (indirect cooking is tighting only one burner and
ptacing food on opposite side of cooking grate), allow more grilling time.
Temperatures: High = 650°F t Medium = 450°F / Low = 300°F.
