Installation Instructions
Installation Warnings
A safe location for use of this outdoor BBQ
DANGER: This appliance shall only be used in an above ground, open air
situation with natural ventilation without stagnant areas, where gas leakage
and products of combustion are rapidly dispersed by wind or natural
convection. This grill has been designed for outdoors only

any boat, trailer or recreational vehicle to prevent a possible fire and to
prevent the possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning or asphyxiation.
Any enclosure in which this appliance is installed shall comply with one of the
following:
• An enclosure with walls on all sides, but at least one permanent
opening at the ground level and no over head cover.
• Within a partial enclosure that includes an over head cover and no
more than two walls.

CLEARANCES
This appliance must be installed on non combustible materials. This outdoor
Barbeque must be installed in accordance with AS5601.
Safe Use of LPG (Propane) Gas
DANGER:
ƒ Never install a propane cylinder that is more than 80 % full, as the
contents may lack the adequate room for expansion when exposed to
heat. Propane vapour may then vent through the pressure relief valve,
which could accumulate in a pool and later cause an explosion or fire.
ƒ Never store a spare propane cylinder in or near this grill.
8
ƒ
ƒ
Exposing a disconnected cylinder to heat could result in the venting of
the propane vapour through the pressure relief valve, and the pooled
vapour could result in a violent fire.
Always confirm that all the openings in the cylinder compartment are
free from any obstructions that would restrict the circulation of
ventilation air. Good ventilation will prevent the pooling of leaked
propane vapour, which is heavier than air, and which could explode if
ignited.
WARNINGS:
ƒ Always consult the rating label prior to the installation of this barbeque
to confirm which fuel the unit has been configured for and will be
suited for the gas that you have available.
ƒ Always check that there are no gas leaks before lighting this grill. Apply
a 50/50 solution of liquid soap and water to the gas supply connections
with a brush or spray bottle, and watch for bubbles.
(tighten connections and check again) Never use a match or naked
flame to test for gas leaks.
ƒ Always visually inspect the gas supply line for fraying, cracking or
rodent damage before each use of this grill and if necessary replace
the defective part.
ƒ Always store your spare propane cylinder in an outdoor area that is
well ventilated, shady cool and removed from any heat source. Always
store in an upright position. Never store a spare cylinder in the vicinity
of this grill, or in the vicinity of any other heat source.
Safe Use of Natural Gas
DANGER:
ƒ Always consult the rating label prior to the installation of this barbeque
to confirm which fuel the unit has been configured for and will be suited
for the gas that you have available.
ƒ The size of the gas line to the appliance (ref AS5601) & connection to
the natural gas supply must be carried out by a licensed plumber for
safety and to assure compliance with the applicable codes.

CONTROL FUNCTIONS
Propane Tank Valve
10
Warning: Never open the tank valve unless the grill is being prepared for
use. This will prevent the pooling of Propane vapour.
Always open the valve immediately before lighting the grill and always close it
immediately after cooking has been completed.
Burner Control Valve
On the model VCS5005 Barbeque there are 5 independent control valves for
the main burners and a separate control for the rotisserie burner. (see Fig.7)
The OFF position is indicated by the dot above each knob. A full range of
flame adjustment is available from High to Low by turning the knob anticlockwise.
Electronic Ignition System
As you push the Ignitor Button, you will hear a series of clicks as the ignitor
module generates an ignition spark to the burners. The burner should light
within 4 seconds. The system is powered by a single “AA” battery. To remove
or replace the battery, turn the push button knob anti-clockwise and carefully
pull out the spring and battery. Ensure that the positive end of the battery is
in the down (bottom) position before replacing the knob.

Note Aeration Settings: Natural gas model; Main burner aeration to be set
at 4.5 mm open .Rotisserie burner aeration to be set at 16 mm open Propane
model main burner aeration to be set a 6.35 mm Rotisserie burner to be set
at 10 mm open.
Turning the burners off
1. Always turn the burner control knob(s) to the OFF position when cooking
has been completed.
2. Promptly turn OFF the gas supply valve at the propane cylinder or the
isolation valve on the natural gas supply line.
3. Close the hood of the grill.
FLARE UPS
Flare ups sometimes occur when food droppings fall into the hot sear plates
or burners and ignite .Some flaring is normal and desirable, as it helps impart
the unique flavours associated with grilled foods. Controlling the intensity of
the flare ups is also desirable, however in order to avoid burned or unevenly
cooked foods and prevent the possibility of an accidental fire.
12
WARNING Always monitor the grill carefully while cooking and turn down
the flame level down (LOW) or (OFF) if flare ups intensify.

sudden change in demand for
gas. This may be engaged
inadvertently, if a burner control
knob should be left ON when
you open the gas cylinder valve.
Rapidly opening the valve can
also engage flow control. To
