PROPANE GAS SAFETY



Your propane gas grill (models GRL****LP) is designed to operate on propane gas only at a
pressure regulated at 11 inches water column (WC) when equipped with the correct propane
orifices on the valves and a propane regulator on the supply line.
EdgeStar LP grills are designed to be used with a standard 20 lb. (9.1kg) Department
of Transportation (DOT) approved LP cylinder. No tanks larger than 20 lbs. are to be
used. The tank must be marked in accordance with the latest DOT specification for LP
gas tanks: Specifications for LP gas Cylinders (DOT CFR49).
Burners must be inspected and cleaned before each use.
Beware of Spiders
Spiders and small insects occasionally spin webs or make nests in the burners during
warehousing, transit, and/or after long period of not using the grill. These webs can lead to a
gas flow obstruction, which could result in a fire in and around the burner tubes. This type of
fire is known as “flashback” and can cause serious damage to your grill and create an unsafe
operating condition for the grill user. Although an obstructed burner tube is not the only cause
of “flashback,” it is the most common cause. Frequent inspection of the burners is necessary.

Maintaining Adequate Ventilation
When building a gas grill into outdoor cabinetry or an island, it is important to maintain proper
ventilation. Ventilation is required to prevent the build-up of gas, which could ultimately lead to
improper performance of the gas grill; damage to the grill; fire, explosion, or injury to the user.
Always make sure that there is proper ventilation and that all flammable materials are placed
at least 24 inches away from the grill on all side.
Be sure to clean the grill vents of all dirt, debris, insects, and spider webs.
Additionally, the grill functions best when protected from outdoor elements. The grill should be
placed in a location that does not get direct rainfall. Wind can greatly affect the performance of
any gas grill. Be advised that it can affect the ability of the grill to maintain a flame. When
substantial wind enters the rear exhaust of the grill, it can create a gas build-up, which poses a
fire risk.
Unpacking the Gas Grill
WARNING: Use two more people to move and install the gas grill. Failure to do so can
result in back or other injury. Carefully remove the packaging materials. Remove any
shipping tape and glue from your gas grill before using. Do not use sharp instruments,
rubbing alcohol, flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. These
products can damage the surface of your gas grill.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove any safety, warning, or product information labels from
your gas grill.
Check the rating label on your grill to ensure that the fuel source is appropriate for your application
before trying to connect any gas lines.
12

An Overfill Prevention Device (ODP) must be used at all times.
 This grill is to be used in residential applications only. Propane tank pressure
should be 11 inches water column.
When using an LP tank, pressure relief devices and valves shall be in direct contact with
the vapor space of the cylinder when in normal use.
LP tanks must always be secured and anchored in an upright position when in use. An
LP tank base and retention bolt must be used (not included).
The LP tank base should be fastened securely to the bottom of the island / cabinet using a
combination of bolts, washers, and nuts. Ensure that a minimum of 2” of clearance is
maintained between the floor and the LP cylinder. Once the LP tank base is secured, place the
primary LP tank in place and tighten the retention bolt until the tank is snug.
14
To Connect the LP Gas Supply:
1. Ensure the 20 lb. LP tank valve is fully closed. To do so, make sure the tank handle is
turned all the way clockwise. You should not hear a hissing noise or smell propane.
2. All gas control (burner) knobs must be in the off position.
3. Align the 3/8” brass coupling nut with the LP tank threads; turn the coupling nut
clockwise by hand. Note that the fittings have flared ends and do not require any
modifications or sealant. Do not overtighten the coupling nut connection as it may
cause damage or strip the threading.
4. Open the LP tank valve by turning the handle counterclockwise.
5. Using a soapy water mixture in a spray bottle, check for leaks at all joints and
connection points. Bubbles should not form in the soapy water mixture. See the section
titled, “Checking for Gas Leaks” in this manual for further instructions and details.
15
6. Once you have confirmed that all connections are secure and there are no gas leaks,
you may proceed with normal use of your grill. All connection points must be free from
gas leaks before first use of the gas grill.
7. A reminder to always close the LP tank valve [by turning the handle clockwise] when the
grill is not in use.
Using an LP Gas Supply in an Enclosure:



Ensure that the natural gas supply line is fitted with a shut-off valve that can be easily
accessed in the event that shutoff at the source is required.
Grills operated with NG fuel must be installed with the NG regulator supplied with your
EdgeStar grill.
EdgeStar NG grills are equipped with an NG regulator set to 4 inches water column.
This regulator is for NG only.
The standard fitting connector for an NG supply is 1/2”.
Use a quality natural gas flex connector (not included) to mate to the included NG
regulator. CSA, UL, or ETL certified connecting lines are recommended. Stainless steel
flex connectors are also recommended.
The flex connector should be an appropriate length for your setup. Do not use a
connector that is too short and requires you to stretch it too far to make the connection.
Flex connectors should come with a standard ½” connection for NG fittings.
Flex connectors should be placed carefully in a location where they are not at risk of
being cut, punctured, or kinked.
Yellow Teflon pipe thread sealant (PTFE tape) is recommended for use on all pipe
thread connections with the exception of flared threads, which will have a secure
connection.
To Connect the NG Gas Supply:
1. Ensure the NG shut-off valve is fully closed. You should not hear a hissing noise or
smell natural gas.
2. All gas control (burner) knobs must be in the off position.
3. Fasten the ½” flex connector – already installed to the NG supply shut-off valve – to the
included NG regulator. Use Yellow Teflon pipe thread sealant (PTFE tape) for nonflared connections. No sealant is required for flared connections. Do not overtighten
the regulator connection as it may cause damage or strip the threading.
4. Open the NG shut-off valve.
5. Using a soapy water mixture in a spray bottle, check for leaks at all joints and
connection points. Bubbles should not form in the soapy water mixture. See the section
titled, “Checking for Gas Leaks” in this manual for further instructions and details.
6. Once you have confirmed that all connections are secure and there are no gas leaks,
you may proceed with normal use of your grill. All connection points must be free from
gas leaks before first use of the gas grill.
7. A reminder to always close the shut-off valve when the grill is not in use.

Plugging in the Lights
This EdgeStar series of gas grill includes internal lighting so the cooking surface is always
visible to the user. It also includes stylish and functional backlighting for the knobs and
switches. These lights require a 120V AC power supply to function. Please review the
electrical requirements in this manual carefully.
Connecting the lights is a simply plug-and-play procedure. The included transformer (packed
separately) comes with a 3-prong 120V AC plug. The grill has a 2-prong connecting wire preattached (reference the Parts Identification section of this manual). Plug the 2-prong wire into
the transformer. Ensure that the connection is secure.

Included Cooking Components
CAUTION: The included ceramic flame tamers are only meant for use with the main cast
burners. Do not install the ceramic flame tamers over the included infrared burner(s) as
they will be damaged. For information on purchasing additional / substitute burners,
please visit www.edgestar.com.
Before using the EdgeStar gas grill for the first time, be sure to thoroughly wash [by hand] the
included ceramic flame tamers, the cooking grates, the warming rack, and the rotisserie forks
under hot water with soap. Do not wash these components in your dishwasher. Allow them
to dry before reinstalling in the grill.
For an even heat and cooking experience, this series of grills includes ceramic briquette flame
tamers. Install the ceramic flame tamers above the main cast burners. There are cast pegs in
the firebox on which the flame tamers rest.
Note: This EdgeStar series of grills also includes stainless steel zone dividers that are
placed between each burner. These help to maintain the temperature in each “zone” –
the grilling surface area above each burner. Though not pictured here, ensure that
these are installed before putting the flame tamers in place.
The cooking grids (grates) can now be installed over the flame tamers:
22
Operation
Important: You must always have the grill hood open when lighting the gas grill.
Otherwise, you risk build-up of gas and possible fire or explosion.
Important: To avoid risk of injury, always keep your face and body as far away as
possible from the grill when lighting. As you proceed to operate the grill, note that
surfaces may be hot and pose a burn hazard. Take care around the grill and make sure
to never leave it unattended. Children should not operate the grill.
For an optimal grilling experience, this EdgeStar series of gas grills includes a combination of
infrared burners and cast burners, referred to hereafter as “main burner(s).” Additionally, this
EdgeStar grill series comes standard with a rotisserie burner. Instructions for using these
burners are in the following sections.
Important: Once the burners are lit, leave them on the “High” setting and close the grill
hood for 5 minutes before cooking anything. This will allow the grill to preheat and burn
off any foreign matters or food objects left in the grill.
23
Lighting the Burner(s)
1. Make sure you have observed all safety warnings in this manual. Follow the instructions
for connecting the gas supply. NEVER turn on the grill without testing for leaks first.
Keep all body parts as far away from the grill as possible. Never smoke while lighting
the grill.
2. Open the grill hood.
3. With all gas control (burner) knobs in the OFF position, open the gas supply.
4. For each burner you wish to operate, push the gas control (burner) knob in, and rotate
counterclockwise to the “High” position marking on the knob.
5. The Piezo-style ignition system will create a loud clicking noise as it produces a spark to
ignite the gas. You will be able to hear and see as the gas ignites; flames will become
visible through the cooking grates and ceramic briquette flame tamers.
6. Close the lid and allow the burners to run on HIGH for about five minutes to burn off
extra gas and residue.
7. Open the lid and adjust the burner knobs to your desired cooking temperature.
If the burners fail to light:
1. If the burner does not light on the first try, repeat immediately. On your second attempt,
if the burner does not light within five (5) seconds, turn the burner knob(s) completely
off. Do not try again for a minimum of five (5) minutes as the gas dissipates.
2. After five (5) minutes, you may proceed to try to light the burner again using the
procedures outlined above.
3. Once you successfully light the first burner, you may proceed to light the other
burner(s), as needed.
4. If, after a few rounds of trying to light the burner using the Piezo-style ignition, the
burner still does not light consider using the manual ignition method in the following
section.
5. Once you are done using the grill, push the burner knobs in, and rotate clockwise to the
“Off” position. You may hear a popping sound when the burners are turned off, which is
normal.
6. Immediately turn off your gas supply.
“Flashback” may occur in or around the burner tubes. Flashback is commonly recognized by a
“whooshing” sound. It this occurs, immediately turn off all burners and shut off the gas supply
to the grill. Allow grilling components to cool fully before handling them. Remove the burners
and brush them with a soapy water mixture to rid them of all foreign materials, dirt, debris, and
food waste. Only reinstall them after they have been thoroughly cleaned.
24
Manually Lighting the Burner(s)
Important: If you have tried lighting your burners using the Piezo-style system, wait at
least five (5) minutes before manually lighting the burners. Leave the hood open and
allow gas to dissipate to avoid a possible hazard.
1. Make sure you have observed all safety warnings in this manual. Follow the instructions
for connecting the gas supply. NEVER turn on the grill without testing for leaks first.
Keep all body parts as far away from the grill as possible. Do not lean over the grill.
2. Open the grill hood.
3. Pull out the stainless steel drip tray. On the drip tray, there is a clip extension to hold a
match. See the image below.
4. Attach a standard match to the clip.
5. Strike the match to light it. Guide the lit match under the grill cooking grate for the
burner you are looking to light.
25
6. Push the gas control (burner) knob in, and rotate counterclockwise to the “High” position
marking on the knob.
7. Repeat steps 4-6 for each main burner you need to light.
8. Close the lid and allow the burners to run on “High” for about five minutes to burn off
extra gas and residue.
9. Open the lid and adjust the burner knobs to your desired cooking temperature.
10. Safely dispose of the match(es) and replace the manual lighting clip extension on the
drip tray.
Caution:
 Do not leave the grill unattended while it is in use.
 Do not attempt to move the grill while it is in use.
 Do not disconnect the gas supply while the grill is in use.
 Turn the gas supply off after you are done using the grill.
 If you are unable to manually light your burners after several attempts, turn off
the gas and contact EdgeStar service or an authorized technician.
Operating the Rotisserie and Rotisserie Burner
The rotisserie burner runs along the rear interior of the grill. It provides consistent low heat for
an even cook.


Do not operate the rotisserie burner with the hood closed. This may damage the grill.
Always make sure the warming rack is removed when using the rotisserie.
To turn on the rotisserie burner:
1. Make sure you have observed all safety warnings in this manual. Follow the instructions
for connecting the gas supply. NEVER turn on the grill without testing for leaks first.
Keep all body parts as far away from the grill as possible.
2. Open the grill hood.
3. Slowly turn the knob counterclockwise.
26
Manually Lighting the Rear Burner
Important: If you tried lighting the rear burner with the burner knob and were unable,
wait at least five (5) minutes before manually lighting the burner. Leave the hood open
and allow gas to dissipate to avoid a possible hazard.
1. Make sure you have observed all safety warnings in this manual. Follow the instructions
for connecting the gas supply. NEVER turn on the grill without testing for leaks first.
Keep all body parts as far away from the grill as possible.
2. Open the grill hood. Ensure that the warming rack is removed.
3. Use a fireplace style of [long] match and hold an open flame to the right side of the rear
burner where the flame normally starts when igniting the rear burner. NEVER use a
standard match or cigarette lighter as these pose a fire risk and you must keep your
hands as far away from flames as possible.
4. Push the gas control (burner) knob in, and rotate counterclockwise to the “High” position
marking on the knob.
5. The rear burner should ignite. If it does not light after about five (5) seconds, turn the
knob to the off position, and wait at least five (5) minutes before trying again to manually
light it.
Flare-Ups
Flare-ups can occur when fats and oils drip from the contents being grilled down onto the
burners. Flare-ups can be a good thing, imparting a fire/smoke-infused flavor into the contents
being grilled. However, if flare-ups become excessive, turn the gas to a lower setting.
Caution:
 If a grease fire occurs, do NOT use water to attempt to put it out. Turn all
burners off and close the lid. If the fire persists, use an ABC extinguisher.
 If the burners go out during operation, turn off all burner knobs and shut the gas
valve at its source. Keep the lid open for at least five minutes with the gas
supply off before attempting to re-light the burners. Do not touch the cooking
grates or any internal parts of the grill as they may burn you.
27
Cleaning and Maintenance
Caution: Always ensure that the gas supply is fully turned off prior to performing any
cleaning and maintenance on your grill. Never attempt to clean parts of the grill while
they are still hot.
Periodic cleaning and proper maintenance will ensure efficiency, top performance, and long life.
Additionally, proper preventive maintenance is required for your own safety.



Use a pipe cleaner or wire to clear any blockages in the tubes that lead into the burners.
Examples of blockages include food grease, outdoor debris, and residue from insects.
Keep your outdoor gas grill area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and
other flammable vapors and liquids.
Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air. Keep all objects away from
vents.
Cleaning the Main Burner(s)
Tip: After every use of your grill, once you are done, turn the burners to the HIGH
setting for up to five (5) minutes to burn off food residue, drippings, and grease. Do
NOT leave the burners on for more than five minutes and do not leave the grill
unattended during this time.
1. After ensuring that the gas is shut off and the burner is cool to handle, remove the burner
from the firebox. To do so, remove each cotter pin from the cast peg. See the drawing
below.
28
2. Use a bristled brush and run it through the orifices of the burner several times.
3. Go over the exterior of the burner with a wire brush several times to loosen debris and
residue. You may also wipe it with a terry cloth or damp rag without using any chemicals.
For stubborn scale, you may use a scraper.
4. Look at all burner ports (the small openings) and run a pipe cleaner or thin wire through
them.
5. Analyze the burner for corrosion and any damage caused by corrosion.
6. Inspect ignition and burner orifices for corrosion and built-up of other residues.
Cleaning the Infrared Burner(s)
The most effective way to clean your infrared burner(s) is to allow it to burn on the HIGH
setting for five to 10 minutes. The infrared burner achieves high temperatures and will burn off
most food and debris.
You may also use a wire brush to scrub away hardened grease and debris. You may remove
each infrared burner from the firebox using the instructions on the prior page. Cotter pins must
be removed from the cast pegs.
29
Inspecting / Adjusting the Air Shutter
If necessary, the gas to air mixture feeding to the main cast burners can be adjusted. With the
main burner removed from the firebox, loosen the screw shown in the image below. Rotate the
shutter clip. Tighten the screw and reinstall the burner.
Note: Before adjusting the air shutter, ensure that the burner has been cleaned.
Note: The ideal flame coming off of the main burner is 1” – 1-1/2” tall. The color should
be blue with yellow peaks. If the air shutter is closed too far, the flames will be much
taller and yellow in color. This is because the gas running to the burners is not mixing
with enough air.
Cleaning the Cooking Grates
Before and after using the grill, always allow the burners to heat up for five minutes with the
hood closed and no contents on the cooking grates. Additionally, you will also need to clean
the grates with a soap and water mixture. If you are cleaning the grates after using the grill,
allow the grates to fully cool before handling them.
Cleaning the Ceramic Briquette Flame Tamers
Over time, the ceramic briquette flame tamers may will become dirty from grease, dirt,
drippings, and debris. Periodic cleaning is required. Use a warm soapy water mixture and
scrub the briquettes with a sponge and wipe with a terry cloth. If necessary, use a wire brush
to loosen excess debris build-up. Always full dry the flame tamers before reinstalling them.
30
Cleaning the Drip Tray
The removable drip tray will collect grease as you use your grill. Inspect the drip tray frequently
to ensure that grease and debris do not build up. The drip tray can be wiped with a warm
soapy water mixture and a terry cloth. Use a wire brush, if necessary, to loosen hardened
grease.
Warning: Grease build-up poses a fire hazard. Clean the drip tray regularly.
Exterior Cleaning
The stainless steel grill exterior may be cleaned with a mild detergent and lukewarm water
solution such as two tablespoons of baking soda to one quart of water.
Do not use solvent based or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft sponge and rinse with clean water.
Wipe with a soft clean towel to prevent water spotting. Stainless steel can discolor when
exposed to chlorine gas and moisture. Clean stainless steel with a cloth dampened with a mild
detergent and warm water solution. Never use an abrasive or caustic cleaning agent.
Maintenance of your stainless steel grill is important to extend the life of your grill. Stainless
steel can and will rust and corrode if not cleaned properly and regularly.
Caring for Stainless Steel
Grills near swimming pools, high humidity areas, and coastal areas are particularly susceptible
to stainless steel rusting. Moisture, high heat, salt / salt water, and chlorine in particular can
cause damage. Your EdgeStar grill is constructed using high quality stainless steel, but take
extra precautions to maintain the quality aesthetic and well-being of your grill. Additional steps
for caring for your stainless steel grill are below:




Clean up all grease spills and foreign materials that adhere to your grill as soon as
possible.
If using household cleaners made specifically for stainless steel, take care to wipe in the
same direction as the graining / brushing of the stainless steel.
When cleaning the area around your grill – floors, cabinetry, other appliances – take
care to protect your grill when using other abrasive cleaning materials and sealants. Do
not let these materials come into contact with your grill. If they do, clean them
immediately with a warm soapy water mixture.
If possible, use a cover designed for grills to shelter your grill from the elements.
However, make sure the grill is not still hot or wet before covering the grill.
