CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 – WARNING – The burning of gas cooking fuel generates some by-products, which are on the list of
substances, which are known by the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm. California law requires businesses to
warn customers of potential exposure to such substances. To minimize exposure to these substances, always operate this unit
according to the use and care manual, ensuring you provide good ventilation when cooking with gas.

USING GRILL WITH ON-BOARD LPG (PROPANE) SYSTEMS
• Magma On-Board LPG (Propane)
Valves and Hose Kits allow Magma
Grills to be installed within a boats
existing on-board, pre-regulated low
pressure LPG (Propane) system.
• Use only Magma Type 3 Low
Pressure LPG (Propane) Valves.
See our Valve Application Guide
at www. MagmaProducts.com for
correct valve.
• In North America use Magma A10-225
LPG 10' Hose Kit in conjunction with
Type 3 Valve. Outside North America
check your local dealer for proper hose
and fittings.
• A primary shutoff valve (supplied with
A10-225 hose kit) must be used with
this control valve at point of connection
into your system. This allows shut off of
gas supply to hose leading to grill.
Gently insert valve stem into venturi tube upside down
until fully inserted and rotate as shown.

IMPORTANT!!
• DO NOT CONNECT A HIGH-PRESSURE SUPPLY HOSE
FROM A NON-REGULATED TANK DIRECTLY TO GRILL.
Magma's grills are designed for use with small disposable propane canisters or with pre-regulated lowpressure propane and optional low-pressure valves. Running high-pressure propane fuel supply lines on a
boat is in violation of American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) guidelines and is not considered a safe
application. Additionally, impurities found in larger refillable propane tanks may clog the small orifices in
the high-pressure control valve/ regulator causing it to lose performance capabilities and eventually fail.
Regulating these tanks to 1/2 PSI and using this pre-regulated propane with the correct low-pressure valve
will insure safe, efficient performance of the grill.

OPERATING PROCEDURES
WARNING: Do not overheat grill. Magma grills do not require pre-heating. Stainless
Steel loses anti-corrosive characteristics when subjected to extreme heat. Most grilling is
done on low temperature with the lid closed. If medium or high heat is required, grill
with lid open.
LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
• Open lid during lighting, hang lid on side of the grill to block the wind (see 14).
• When igniting grill, use a long nozzle butane lighter.
• To ignite grill, first ignite lighter or match flame, put flame to outer edge of Radiant
Plate, then turn valve to high "large ".
• To grill, cook with lid on.
To help create your own Magma gourmet experience every time you grill,
please check these important critical points prior to lighting your grill.
• Mount is secure and grill does not move.
• Grease tray and fire pan are clean from excess drippings to reduce flare up and
ensure even air flow.
• Lid is correctly positioned to operate freely and is in best position for blocking the
wind.
• Venturi tube, burner, threaded burner pipe and valve orifice are free of obstructions,
such as spider webs.
• Radiant plate is positioned correctly.
• Grill grate is in locked position under holding clips.
• Turbo Venturi Tube holding nut is tight & doesn't turn when rotating valve position.
• Valve is installed and locked into Turbo Venturi Tube properly.
• Sufficient fuel is available.
Cooking Tips
• The most common mistake when grilling is using too high of a heat setting. Grills
become hotter as you cook, so use moderate heat settings when cooking with lid
closed.
• Always keep a water spray bottle handy for flare ups and quick cooling if grill
overheats.
• Coat the grill grate with vegetable or olive oil to prevent food from sticking.
Stowing Tips
• Always disconnect the fuel canister from the valve prior to stowing.
• Stow the valve and Turbo Venturi Tube in a clean, dry area to protect from
corrosion to valve and spider web obstructions in venturi tube.
• Always stow by unthreading the entire grill from the L-Bracket. Do not remove the
L-Bracket & Clamp unless repositioning is necessary.
• Always store propane in a sealed propane storage locker that allows leakage to
vent overboard or use Magma A10-210 Propane Storage Tote. Never stow
below decks.

MAINTENANCE
A Word About Stainless Steel: Stainless Steel, contrary to popular belief, can rust. Most commonly,
deposits on the surface of the product will trap moisture. It is this moisture that robs the stainless steel of
oxygen. Oxygen is the element that reacts with the stainless steel to form a protective layer of chrome
oxide. Robbed of oxygen this reaction does not take place and “crevice corrosion”, or “surface rusting”,
occurs. To minimize this effect, thoroughly clean your grill with products specifically designed to clean
stainless steel, rinse with fresh water, and towel dry. Additionally, stainless steel that is exposed to high
heat for prolonged periods will change in color and texture over time. The radiant plate, used to distribute
heat evenly across the grill, does so by deflecting high heat over a large surface area. This prolonged
exposure to high temperature will cause the radiant plate, burner and the inner fire pan/shell to change
color. This ”bluing” and later ”browning” is normal and will not affect the product operation. However in
time, this exposure will burn the chromium and nickel completely out of the stainless steel, and without
chromium and nickel, the stainless steel material may eventually rust and need to be replaced.
Interior Stainless Steel Components: Interior stainless steel components (firepan, radiant plate &
dome, grease catch pan with threaded pipe, and the burner) are subject to high temperatures, grease and
food residue. The exposure to high heat will cause the interior stainless steel components to first blue,
then brown. This is not a failure of the stainless steel and will not affect the operation of the product.
Again, we recommend a thorough cleaning, of all internal parts, after each use. It is important to
disassemble the interior components and remove any food residue. A ”Scothbrite” pad or similar product
may be used in this process. For heavier burned-on stains we recommend ”Easy-Off Oven & Grill Cleaner”.
Note: Unscrew the burner and you will be able to lift out the inner liner of the bowl for easier cleaning
and maintenance. You will also want to remove the grease catch pan to thoroughly clean it. Once your
grill is free of debris and stuck-on food residue, be sure to replace all internal parts correctly.
Burner: The round burner needs to be unscrewed and cleaned periodically. The threaded gas feed pipe
and the threads on the burner also require lubrication from time to time. We recommend using WD-40 or
a similar product for this purpose. This will insure easier removal of the burner in the future.
Grill Grate: We recommend that you clean the grill grate with a brass wire brush while the grill is still
warm after each use. The grill grate can then be washed by hand or in a dishwasher as required.
Regulator: The threaded fitting of the combination control valve/regulator will, from time to time require
lubrication. We recommend a small spray of WD-40 or similar product to keep the threads clean and well
lubricated.
Grease Catch Pan: The Grease Catch Pan is designed to allow several meals (leaner cuts) to be prepared
before it is necessary to take apart and clean. However, since this is the last and final place for any food
residue to go. We highly recommend cleaning the Grease Catch Pan after every use and especially after
preparing greasier foods. Do not allow grease drippings to build up. Once the pan is full, it can overflow.
Stowing the Grill: Fresh water, saltwater, and even damp air can cause stainless to corrode. Do not
store your grill for prolonged periods in lockers, bilges, dock boxes, or any other damp area. We suggest
covering your grill with a breathable material such as Sunbrella® and storing your grill in a clean, dry
atmosphere. Never cover your grill with a non-breathable material as this will accelerate the potential for
corrosion.
