LEVELING AND CONNECTING MANIFOLDS - ALL MODELS
The IR2 Model is not designed to be batteried to other heavy duty equipment. After leveling the IR2
Model, as described in Step 2, proceed to Gas Connections.
1. Place the broiler in its exact position or battery lineup.
2. Using a carpenter level, level the broiler from front to rear and from side to side. Unless the broilers
are level, they will not give proper cooking results, and equipment being batteried will not draw up
tight.
As of January 1998, Vulcan-Hart appliances use Ward gas unions instead of Stockham gas unions.
If you are installing a new battery range to an existing field appliance, the union on the existing field
appliance must be checked against the union being used on the new range. The union manufacturer’s
name around the face surface of the union nut must match. The new range has been shipped with a
Ward union. If the old appliance has something different, i.e., Stockham, it must be replaced with a Ward
union. Failure to replace this union could result in a gas leak (Fig. 16).
If a Ward gas union is needed for installation, it may be obtained through the Vulcan-Hart Parts
Department.
– 11 –
Fig. 16
Questions or concerns regarding the installation procedures may be addressed by calling the VulcanHart Service Department (502) 778-2791.
3. Engage union nut on manifold pipe of broiler with the male fitting on the next broiler, and draw up
union hand-tight. Be sure broilers butt both front and rear.
NOTE: Broilers are mounted on a steel, skid-type base, so a crowbar may be used to jockey units. If
the manifolds do not line up, then the broilers are not level.
4. Continue to level up and connect manifold pipe until all broilers in the battery are connected, then
tighten all manifold unions gas-tight.
– 12 –
GAS CONNECTIONS
CAUTION: All gas supply connections and any pipe joint compound used must be resistant to
the action of propane gases.
Connect gas supply to the broiler(s). Make sure the pipes are clean and free of obstructions, dirt and
piping compound.
Codes require that a gas shutoff valve be installed in the gas line ahead of the broiler.
Natural gas broilers and propane gas broilers are equipped with fixed orifices and no adjustment is
necessary.
Model IR Broilers for operation on natural or propane gas are also equipped with a factory-preset
pressure regulator, with an outlet pressure of 6" (1.49 mb) Water Column for natural gas supply and
10" (2.49 mb) Water Column for propane gas supply. No further adjustment should be required.
Models GHCBO40, GHCB44 and GHMCB44 also require a pressure regulator (not supplied). The
regulators must have:
•
A.G.A. design certification.
•
Enough regulation capacity for the total connected gas load.
•
Pressure adjustment range to allow adjustment for the manifold pressure marked on the rating
plate.
Unless the manifold pressure on all connected broilers is the same, a separate regulator must be
supplied for each broiler having different manifold pressures.
If the front plates do not line up perfectly, adjust by using bolts under the front plate.
WARNING: PRIOR TO LIGHTING, CHECK ALL JOINTS IN THE GAS SUPPLY LINE FOR LEAKS.
USE SOAP AND WATER SOLUTION. DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME.
Ensure that burner heads are connected.
After piping has been checked for leaks, all piping receiving gas should be fully purged to remove air.
TESTING THE GAS SUPPLY SYSTEM
When test pressures exceed 1/2 psig (3.45 kPa), the broiler and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system.
When test pressures are 1/2 psig (3.45 kPa) or less, the broiler must be isolated from the gas supply
system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve.
FLUE CONNECTIONS
DO NOT obstruct the flow of flue gases from the flue duct located on the rear of the broiler. It is
recommended that the flue gases be ventilated to the outside of the building through a ventilation
system installed by qualified personnel.
From the termination of the broiler flue vent to the filters of the hood venting system, an 18" (457 mm)
minimum clearance must be maintained.
Information on the construction and installation of ventilating hoods may be obtained from the standard
for "Vapor Removal from Cooking Equipment," NFPA No. 96 (latest edition), available from the National
Fire Protection Association, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269.
– 13 –
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
WARNING: ELECTRICAL AND GROUNDING CONNECTIONS MUST COMPLY WITH THE
APPLICABLE PORTIONS OF THE NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE AND/OR OTHER LOCAL
ELECTRICAL CODES.
WARNING: DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL POWER TO THE MACHINE AND FOLLOW
LOCKOUT / TAGOUT PROCEDURES.
If the broiler is not equipped with a grounding plug and electrical supply is needed, ground the broiler
by using the ground lug provided (refer to the wiring diagram located inside the lower cabinet section).
Infrared broilers Models IR1, IR2 and IR44 are equipped with a 4' (122 cm) long supply cord.
WARNING: APPLIANCES EQUIPPED WITH A FLEXIBLE ELECTRIC SUPPLY CORD ARE
PROVIDED WITH A THREE-PRONG GROUNDING PLUG. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THIS PLUG
BE CONNECTED INTO A PROPERLY GROUNDED THREE-PRONG RECEPTACLE. IF THE
RECEPTACLE IS NOT THE PROPER GROUNDING TYPE, CONTACT AN ELECTRICIAN. DO
NOT REMOVE THE GROUNDING PRONG FROM THIS PLUG.
Do not connect broiler to electrical supply until after gas connections have been made.
MINIMUM BYPASS SETTING - MODEL GHCBO40 OVEN
Adjust the oven pilot and burner for proper adjustment of minimum bypass setting. See instructions
under LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS - MODEL GHCBO40 OVEN.
LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS - MODELS GHCB44, GHCBO40 AND GHMCB44 BROILERS
1. Remove au gratin oven bottom, baffle and burner box cover.
2. Remove oven bottom and baffles (Model GHCBO40 only).
3. Remove manifold panel.
4. Turn gas supply ON.
5. Place the ceramics, with the projections down, to the rear of broiler burners. The lugs on the
burners will properly position themselves. The ceramics are sized at the factory.
6. Place the au gratin oven baffle and bottom, but leave the burner box cover off.
7. Turn the gas valve ON and allow air in the line to be exhausted. When gas begins to flow, turn gas
valve OFF and wait 5 minutes before lighting pilots and burner with a taper. The burner flame
should be sharp when the broiler is cold, with a blue cone of flame about 3/4" (19 mm) long on natural
gas and 1/2" (12.7 mm) long on propane gas. The flame will soften out and curl around the ceramics
as the broiler gets hot. The length of the flame is determined by the adjustment of the nozzle. The
sharpness of the flame is determined by the air shutter adjustment.
8. Adjust broiler pilots at the pilot valve on the left end of the pilot manifold pipe. Adjust the flame to
approximately 3/4" (19 mm) long. Replace the burner box front.
9. Replace manifold panel and other parts that had been removed.
NOTE: Be sure pilots remain lit after installation.
– 14 –
Carbonization of Ceramics
If the ceramics take on a black sooty accumulation, the burners are receiving an insufficient amount
of air. Open the air shutters further to provide more air. If carbonization occurs during initial adjustment,
it will burn off as soon as proper adjustment is achieved.
Burner Performance
If, after a period of satisfactory operation, the burner flame characteristics should change or the length
of burner flame should be reduced, either the air mixer opening or the gas valve orifice has become
restricted. The burners should be cleaned every 60 days, or more often as required, by an authorized
servicer.
LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS - MODEL GHCBO40 OVENS
1. If the oven pilot is out, turn the burner OFF. Wait 5 minutes before relighting.
2. Depress the red ignition button located on the oven control panel and ignite the pilot. Hold
60 seconds until pilot remains ON.
3. Adjust the oven pilot and burner for proper adjustment of minimum bypass setting. This
adjustment must be made at the time the broiler is installed. To adjust this flame:
•
Be sure oven burner pilot flame is ignited.
•
With oven cold, slowly turn dial (Fig. 17) counterclockwise from OFF until main burner gas
snaps on.
•
Remove dial.
•
With a screwdriver, turn bypass adjustment screw (Fig. 17) counterclockwise to increase the
bypass flame, or clockwise to decrease it, until flame over entire burner is approximately 1/8"
(3.175 mm) high.
•
Replace dial.
CAUTION: While making this adjustment, if the oven should become heated while the dial is set
at a low range (below 350°F [177°C]), the bypass flame will shut off completely. If this occurs,
turn dial counterclockwise slowly until bypass gas snaps on. Then check bypass adjustment as
stated above.

LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS - MODELS GHCB1 AND GHCB2
1. Remove burner box front cover and turn gas supply ON.
2. Place the ceramics, with the projections down, to the rear of broiler burners. The lugs on the
burners will properly position themselves. The ceramics are sized at the factory.
3. Turn the gas valve ON and allow air in the line to purge. When gas begins to flow, turn gas valve
OFF and wait 5 minutes before lighting the pilots. The pilot flame should be about 3/4" high and
burner with a taper. The burner flame should be high enough to touch the ceramic bricks. The
length of the burner flame is determined by the adjustment of the burner nozzle. When the burner
flame is cold, the flame should appear as a sharp blue cone. As the flame gets hot, it will soften
in color and begin to curl around the ceramics. The sharpness of the flame is controlled by the
setting of the burner air shutter (Fig. 18).
PL-41730
Fig. 18
Pilot Burner Adjustment
Turn the pilot burner valve (located in the lower compartment) ON. Each burner is provided with a
standing pilot burner. Adjust the pilot flame to approximately 3/4" (19 mm) flame height. The adjusting
valve is installed in the inlet of the pilot burner manifold, located behind the removable front panel above
the grid area.
Carbonization of Ceramics
If the ceramics take on a black sooty accumulation, the burners are receiving an insufficient amount
of air. Open the air shutters further to provide more air. If carbonization occurs during initial adjustment,
it will burn off as soon as proper adjustment is achieved.

Main Burner Adjustment
Orifices (1 per burner) are located in the front of each burner venturi, behind a removable front panel
above the grid area. Each burner is controlled by either a "Hi-Lo" Valve (IR2), or a "Hi-Med-Lo" Valve
(IR44) and an orifice (Fig. 22).
Main Burner Valve Adjustment
The "high" position is fixed and cannot be adjusted. The "low" position may be adjusted to obtain the
minimum stable flame. In order to adjust the "low" setting, turn the knob to "low," remove the knob and
rotate the adjusting screw (located in the center shaft of the valve) clockwise to decrease and
counterclockwise to increase burner flame (see Fig. 21).
Air Adjustment
Although air adjustment is made at the factory before the broiler is shipped, it may be necessary to
readjust after installation is made. All of the air required for combustion is supplied by the blower through
an air duct on the left side. A single air adjustment is provided at the air intake to the blower (IR44) or
behind each "right" burner valve (IR2). No other adjustment is provided or necessary (Figs. 21 and 22.)
Burners or infrared generators should burn with uniform radiant heat and without any flame curling
around the sides of the burner. If flame curls around the burner, the air supply needs to be increased;
if burner radiates with a bright orange glow with darkened areas throughout, the air supply should be
decreased.
(Model IR44 Only) — Insufficient air may keep the pressure switch opened and the solenoid valve will
not open to supply gas to the broiler. Increase the air supply to obtain proper operation.
PL-41734
Fig. 22
Carbon Accumulation — Burner Screen (Infrared Broilers Only)
If the burner screens take on a black sooty accumulation, the burners are not receiving enough air.
Increase the air supply at the blower inlet. The carbon will burn off as soon as the proper adjustment
is made.

and GHCB2 settings are variable, using a manual
throttle.
Grease Collector Handle
— The grease pan must be checked frequently and
emptied when it is about 3/4 full. To check or empty
the grease collector pan, pull the grease collector
handle straight out until the pan is partially
exposed. If the grease pan is being emptied,
carefully remove the grease pan completely from
the broiler. Dispose of the grease and return the
pan to the broiler before continuing to broil.
Oven Burner Valve (GHCBO40 Only)
— When opened, allows gas to flow to the oven
burner. To open the valve, turn the knob
counterclockwise. To close, turn the knob
clockwise.
Thermostat Control (GHCBO40 Only)
— Used to regulate the amount of heat needed to
cook a product. The thermostat temperature range
is 150°F to 500°F (65.5°C to 260°C). Turn the knob
counterclockwise to increase heat and clockwise
to decrease heat.
Red Ignition Button (GHCBO40 Only)
— To operate, push the button in as pilot is being lit
(see LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for GHCBO40).
Toggle Switch (IR2 and IR44)
— This is the power switch. Flip the switch UP to put
the broiler into operation, DOWN to turn the broiler
off.
Signal Light (IR2 and IR44)
— When lit, indicates that the broiler is on.
BEFORE FIRST USE
Burn off protective grid oils before cooking food products. With grid in full-up position, operate broiler
at full output for approximately 1 hour or until smoking stops. The burning will cause a somewhat
unpleasant odor; this is normal.

COOKING
It is not necessary to preheat the IR Model broilers before using, nor is it necessary to keep the gas
on a low setting when not in use. Broiling temperatures are reached within 90 seconds. Burner life will
be extended if the burners are turned off between cooking periods.
Select the desired grid position and gas setting. It is recommended that gas input be reduced first when
lower grid temperatures are desired. Further reduction in grid temperatures, if necessary, can then be
obtained by lowering the grid position to any one of the several grid positions.
Pull the broiler grid handle straight out to slide the grid assembly out for loading. After loading product,
pull the grid handle slightly up and push straight back to return the grid assembly to the cooking
chamber.

COOKING CHART - GHCBO40 OVEN ONLY
Recommended temperatures and times are intended as a guide only. Adjustments must be made to
compensate for variations in recipes, ingredients, installation and personal preference in product
appearance. Cooking time and shrinkage may vary with roasting temperature, cut and grade of meat
and degree of doneness. Smaller cuts will generally show greater time savings than larger cuts at a
given temperature.
Meat roasting is most satisfactory at temperatures of 225°F to 325°F (107°C to 163°C) for Beef, Lamb,
Poultry and Ham; 325°F (163°C) for fresh Pork as recommended by USDA and American Meat
Institute.
A pan of water (approximately 12 x 20 x 1" [304.8 x 508 x 25.4 mm]) may be placed in the oven bottom.
This water supplies humidity to reduce shrinkage. Add water if necessary during roasting.
Roasting pans should be no deeper than necessary to hold drippings, usually 2 to 21/2" (51 to 63.5 mm).

CLEANING
WARNING: UNPLUG THE POWER CORD BEFORE CLEANING THE BROILER.
Daily
Exterior
Clean the exterior finish of the broiler with a mild soap solution or similar grease-dissolving material.
DO NOT use Dawn Dish Detergent.
Broiler and Oven
Clean the broiler, oven sections and doors, especially if fruit pies or tomato sauce were baked or meats
roasted, or if there have been any spillovers.
Stainless Steel
Routine cleaning of stainless steel may be done with ordinary soap or detergent and water. DO NOT
use Dawn Dish Detergent. To prevent water spots and streaks, rinse the broiler thoroughly with warm
water and wipe dry with a soft, clean cloth. The addition of a rinsing agent will also help prevent spotting.
When scraping off heavy deposits of grease or oil from stainless steel broilers, use stainless steel,
wood, plastic or rubber tools. Never use ordinary steel scrapers, knives or plain steel wool.
Fingerprints may be minimized by applying a cleaner that will leave a thin, oily or waxy film. Wipe the
cleaner on and remove the excess with a soft, dry cloth. Subsequent fingerprints will usually disappear
when wiped lightly with a soft, dry cloth containing a little of the cleaner. If the surface is especially dirty
to start with, wash first with soap or detergent and water.
Soaking with hot, soapy water will help greatly to remove burned-on foods and grease. Stubborn
deposits can be removed with scouring powder mixed into a paste and applied with stainless steel wool
or sponges. Do not use ordinary steel wool because particles that remain can eventually rust and cause
unsightly spots and stains. Rub in the direction of the polish lines.
Straw-colored or slightly darkened areas may appear on stainless steel appliances where temperatures
reach 500°F (260°C) or more. This "heat tint" is caused by a slight oxidation of the stainless steel and
is not harmful.
To control or minimize this condition, never use more heat than is absolutely necessary. Do not use
oversize pots where whipping of the flames will occur.
Heat tint can be removed by scouring vigorously with stainless steel wool and a paste made of scouring
powder. Rub in the direction of the polish lines.
Periodically
Clean dust and lint from the blower fan blades to maintain the greatest air flow and to prevent carboning
the burners.

MAINTENANCE
WARNING: THE BROILER AND ITS PARTS ARE HOT. USE CARE WHEN OPERATING, CLEANING
AND SERVICING THE BROILER.
WARNING: DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL POWER TO THE MACHINE AND FOLLOW
LOCKOUT / TAGOUT PROCEDURES.
The efficient operation of this broiler depends upon a rather delicate balance between the volume of gas
and the supply of air. Unless complete combustion of the gas is achieved, poor operating characteristics
and excessive gas consumption can occur.
Periodic adjustment and cleaning of the burners by an authorized servicer is recommended.
LUBRICATION
No lubrication is needed for the IR or GH Models.
VENT
Annually check the flue, when cool, to be sure it is free of obstructions.
TROUBLESHOOTING
CHECKS TO BE MADE BEFORE CALLING THE SERVICER
1. Make sure the gas supply is on.
2. Make sure the store electric supply is on (Infrared Models only).
3. Make sure the broiler is plugged in (Infrared Models only).
4. Make sure the pilot light is lit.
SERVICE
To obtain service and parts information concerning your broiler, contact the Vulcan-Hart Service Depot
in your area (refer to the listing supplied with this broiler), or Vulcan-Hart Company Service Department
at the address or phone number shown on the front cover of this manual.
