Maintaining Adequate Ventilation
When building a gas side burner 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 side burner; damage to the side burner; 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 side burner on all side.
Be sure to clean the side burner vents of all dirt, debris, insects, and spider webs.
Additionally, the side burner functions best when protected from outdoor elements. The side
burner should be placed in a location that does not get direct rainfall. Wind can greatly affect
the performance of any gas side burner. Be advised that it can affect the ability of the side
burner to maintain a flame. When substantial wind enters the rear exhaust of the side burner, it
can create a gas build-up, which poses a fire risk.

while lighting the side burner.
2. Remove the lid and place to the side.
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 a quarter turn to the “HIGH” position marking on the knob. Turn the
knob slowly so as to allow enough gas to reside in the lines to successfully ignite the
burner.
5. The burner should ignite. Repeat for the other burner, if applicable.
6. Allow burners to run on “HIGH” for a few minutes so they can burn off extra gas and
residue. Then, proceed to adjust the burner knobs to your desired cooking temperature.
7. Once you are done using the side burner, push the burner knob(s) in, and rotate
clockwise to the “OFF” position. You may hear a popping sound when the burners are
turned off, which is normal.
8. Immediately turn off your gas supply.
If a burner fails to light:
1. If a 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, the burner still does not light turn all
knobs to the “OFF” position and cut the gas supply at its source.
5. Inspect for proper setup and look for any obstructions to the gas supply that may be
causing the issue. Additionally, inspect the burner ports for any blockages.
“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 side burner. 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. To
mitigate flashback, clean the burners monthly and any time you use the side burner after an
extended period of time.

Manually Lighting the Burner(s)
Important: If you have tried lighting your burners to no avail, wait at least five (5)
minutes before manually lighting the burners. Leave the lid off of the side burner to
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 side burner as possible. Do not lean over the
grill.
2. Follow steps 1-4 in the “Lighting the Burner(s)” section of the previous page.
3. Remove the griddle.
4. You may then use a long fireplace-style of match to manually light the burners. Place
the flame near the burner ports and the burner should light immediately. Make sure to
keep all body parts as far away from the side burner as possible during the process.
5. Replace the griddle and adjust the burner(s) to your desired cooking temperature.
Caution:
 Do not leave the side burner unattended while it is in use.
 Do not attempt to move the side burner while it is in use.
 Do not disconnect the gas supply while the side burner is in use.
 Turn the gas supply off after you are done using the side burner.
 If you are unable to manually light your burners after several attempts, turn off
the gas and contact EdgeStar service or an authorized technician.
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 side burner as they may burn you.
20
Cleaning and Maintenance
Caution: Always ensure that the gas supply is fully turned off prior to performing any
cleaning and maintenance on your side burner. All burner knobs should also be in the
“OFF” position. Never attempt to clean parts of the side burner while they are still hot.
Caution:
 For proper functionality, use pots that are between 4-3/4” and 8-3/4” in diameter.
 Allow the side burner to heat up to appropriate temperatures before attempting
to cook foods, particularly those that are unsafe to consume unless they reach a
minimum internal temperature.
WARNING:
 Do not line the drip tray with aluminum foil as this poses a fire risk.
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
burner(s). Examples of blockages include food grease, outdoor debris, and residue from
insects.
Keep your outdoor grill and side burner 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 Burner(s)
Tip: After every use of your side burner, 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 side
burner 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. First, make sure to disconnect the ignition wires.
21
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.
Reinstalling the Burner(s)
1. Ensure that the gas is shut off prior to attempting to reinstall each burner.
2. Carefully reinstall the burner back into the firebox.
3. Check that the burner is firmly in place in its proper location after replacing. Make sure the
tubes on the bottom of the burner are inside the venturi tube opening (see below). These
tubes MUST be seated inside the venturi tube opening; if not, gas will escape and there is
a risk for fire or explosion.
4. Reconnect the ignition wires.
22
Cleaning the Cooking Griddle
After using the side burner, turn the burner knob(s) off and cut the gas at its source. Once the
side burner and griddles have cooled down, remove the griddle and clean it with a soap and
water mixture. You may use a terry cloth to wipe down the cooking griddle. Reinstall once the
griddle is fully dry and cover with the side burner lid.
Cleaning the Drip Tray
The removable drip tray will collect grease as you use your side burner. 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 side burner 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 side burner is important to extend the life of your side
burner. Stainless steel can and will rust and corrode if not cleaned properly and regularly.
23
Caring for Stainless Steel
Side burners 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 side burner is constructed using high quality
stainless steel, but take extra precautions to maintain the quality aesthetic and well-being of
your side burner. Additional steps for caring for your stainless steel side burner are below:




Clean up all grease spills and foreign materials that adhere to your side burner 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 side burner – floors, cabinetry, other appliances –
take care to protect your side burner when using other abrasive cleaning materials and
sealants. Do not let these materials come into contact with your side burner. If they do,
clean them immediately with a warm soapy water mixture.
If possible, use a cover designed for side burners to shelter your side burner from the
elements. However, make sure the side burner is not still hot or wet before covering the
side burner.
