of the BBQ, wait 5 minutes, and try the lighting
procedure again.
Possible Reason
Solution
Valve on cylinder is
closed
Open valve on cylinder
Control knob is off
Turn knob to high
when lighting
Igniter is faulty
Use a long barbecue
match
Before cooking for the first time, operate the
barbecue for about 15 minutes with the lid closed
and the gas turned on HIGH. This will “heat
clean” the internal parts.
IMPORTANT
•
•
• Do not smoke when attempting to ignite
the barbecue.
• Never use volcanic rock, heatbeads or
other material.
• Always use protective gloves when handling
hot components.
•
Note: If for some reason, ignitor fails to
produce a spark at the electrode, barbecue
can be lit by a long barbecue match. With
hood open insert lighted match into match
lighting hole positioned on the side of the
BBQ body. Push and turn a control knob to
‘HIGH’. Burner ignition can be checked
through this hole.

Never use the side burner with the lid in the closed position. Never attempt to the light the side burner with a pot over the burner. Light the burner first ,and then place the pot over the burner.
DO NOT USE THE ROTISSERIE BURNER WHEN MAIN BURNERS ARE IN OPERATION.
OPERATING PROCEDURE
Burn-off
Roasting
The cooking surface does not need any burn-off
time. Due to the nature of the coating, DO NOT
use sharp or metallic objects on the surface.
For best results when roasting remove the
hotplate and centre the grill.
The outer two burners should be used on the low
to medium setting.
Preheating
Adjust the control knob to maintain the
temperature around the medium mark
(approx. 200o to 230o).
It is necessary to preheat the barbecue for at least
5 minutes before cooking certain foods, depending
on the type of food and the cooking temperature.
Food that requires a low cooking temperature,
needs only a period of 2-3 minutes preheating.
Approximate Cooking Time
The table below shows approximate cooking times
with the control set to ‘MEDIUM’ temperature.
Cooking Temperatures
‘HIGH’ setting - Use this setting only for fast warm
up, for searing steaks and chops, and for burning
food residue from the grill plates after cooking is
over. Rarely, if ever, do you use the ‘HIGH’ setting
for extended cooking.
‘MEDIUM’ setting (mid-way between ‘HIGH’
and ‘LOW’). Use this setting for most grilling, and
for cooking hamburgers and vegetables.
‘LOW’ setting - Use this setting when cooking very
lean cuts such as fish.
Barbecue Roasts
Minutes
Chicken & Rare Beef
(approx.)
45 minutes per Kg
Beef & Medium Lamb
(approx.)

Clean your barbecue after each USE. DO NOT use abrasive or flammable cleaners, as it will damage the parts of the product and may start a fire. Clean in warm soapy water.
CARE & MAINTENANCE
Care & Maintenance
Care of Cooking Surface
As with all appliances, proper care and
maintenance will keep them in top operating
condition and prolong their life. Your new gas
barbecue is no exception. By following these
cleaning procedures on a timely basis, your
barbecue will be kept clean and working properly
with minimum effort.
Use and care of the easy clean cooking surface is
important. Do not use metal utensils or cut food
on the cooking surface. Use only plastic cooking
utensils. Do not use pans on the cooking surface.
Do not overheat the cooking surface with the
hood down or when there is no food on the
cooking surface.
Flash-Back
Cleaning the Drip Tray
Spiders and small insects occasionally spin
webs or make nests in the burner tubes during
warehousing and transit. These webs can lead to
a gas flow obstruction which could result in a fire
in and around the burner tubes.
To avoid fat or grease dripping from the barbecue
remove and empty the drip tray after each use.
Wait until the drip tray is cool to touch before
disposing of contents.
The drip tray should be washed periodically in a
mild detergent and warm water solution.
This type of fire is known as ‘FLASH-BACK’ and
can cause serious damage to your barbecue and
create an unsafe operating condition for the user.
Although an obstructed burner tube is not the only
cause of ‘FLASH-BACK’ it is the most common
cause and frequent inspection and cleaning of the
burner tubes is necessary.
Abnormal Operation
Any of the following are considered to be abnormal
operation and may require servicing:
• Yellow tipping of the burner flame
• Sooting up of grill plates
• Burners not igniting properly
• Burners failing to remain alight
• Burners extinguished by trolley doors
• Gas valves, which are difficult to turn
If fire occurs in and around the burner,
immediately turn off gas at its source and turn the
burner control to ‘OFF’, wait until the barbecue has
cooled, then clean the burner tubes and burner
ports.
Service
Cleaning the Grill Plates
If the appliance cannot be adjusted to perform
correctly it should not be used until serviced or
repaired. Contact Sitro Group Australia for spare
parts and service information.
After cooking, turn burner control to ‘OFF’ and
let barbecue cool before attempting to clean the
grill plates. Before first use and periodically, it is
suggested that you wash the grill plates in a mild
soap and warm water solution. You can use a
wash cloth to clean your barbecue plates.
WARNING
Should the burners extinguish for any reason,
turn off all control knobs and the cylinder gas
valve. Wait 5 minutes before attempting to
relight the appliance.
Beware of spiders and wasps. Burner tube
should be inspected and cleaned periodically.
To avoid any flare-ups, it is recommended
that the drip tray be checked and emptied
regularly. Contents of the drip tray may be
very hot during cooking. If emptied during
extended cooking extreme caution should be
taken and direct contact by hand should be
avoided at all times. Allow to cool completely
before disposing of the contents.
If a grease or fat fire occurs, turn off all control
knobs and gas cylinder valve immediately until
the fire is out. A leak test must be carried out prior to using
the appliance for the first time or each time
the gas cylinder is refilled or each time the gas
hose and gas regulator being disconnected
from the gas cylinders or appliance.

CLEANING THE BURNER
(B) Use a narrow bottle brush with a flexible
handle (DO NOT use a brass wire brush), run the
brush through each burner tube several times.
Follow these instructions to clean
and/or replace burners.
(C) Wear eye protection: use an air hose to force
air into the burner tube and out the air ports.
Check each port to make sure air comes out each
hole.
1.Turn gas off at control knobs and gas cylinder.
2.Remove cooking grates and grease tray.
3.Remove screw at end of burner using a screwdriver.
5.Wire brush entire outer surface of burner to remove food residue and dirt.
4.Carefully lift each burner up and away from valve openings.
6.Clean any blocked ports with a stiff wire such as an open paper clip.
CAUTION: Inspect burner for any damage (cracks
or holes). If damage is found, replace with a new
burner. Reinstall the burner, ensuring they are
located on the gas valve.
7. Check burner for damage, due to normal wear and corrosion some holes may become enlarged. If any large cracks or holes are found replace burner.
We suggest three ways to clean the burner tubes.
Use the one easiest for you. 8. Carefully refit burners, ensuring they are located on the gas valve.
(A) Bend a stiff wire (a light weight coat hanger
works well) into a small hook. Run the hook
through each burner tube several times.
9. Replace screw at the end of burner.
10. Replace grease tray and cooking grates.
