the installation, operating and maintenance instructions thoroughly
before installing or servicing this equipment.
Placement and Location
The area surrounding your new grill should be kept clean and free
from flammable liquids and other combustible materials such as
mops, rags or brooms, as well as solvents, cleaning fluids, and
Maintain sufficient distance as to not overheat any overhead combustible material such as a patio cover.
Cal Flame™ grills are not intended for installation in or on recreational vehicles or boats.
Do not place this grill under or near windows or vents that can be
opened into your home.
Never locate this appliance in an enclosed room, under a sealed
overhead structure, or in any type of enclosed area such as a garage, shed, or breezeway. Keep clear of trees and shrubs.
• Cal Flame™ grills and carts are designed for outdoor use
Do not use the grill, grill cabinet, or area surrounding the grill as a
storage area for flammable or plastic items. Do not store the liquid
propane (LP) cylinder in the vicinity of this or any other appliance
when it is not being used.
Safety Instructions
Before installing built in grills in enclosures, copy all product information such as model number, serial number and type of grill
(e.g. natural gas or LP) and store information in a safe place. This
information is located on a plate located behind the grill and is visible when the hood is lowered or on the right side of the chassis.
There is an area on the back cover of this manual where you can
write down this information.
We recommend that a licensed contractor install your Cal Flame™
grill. Installation must conform to local codes, or in the absence
of local codes, with either the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1 / NFPA54, Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code,

Safety Instructions
To prevent fire and smoke damage, remove all packaging material
before operating grill.
Do not use an extension cord to supply power to your Cal Flame™
grill or cart. Such use may result in fire, electrical shock or other
personal injury. Do not install a fuse in the neutral or ground circuit. A fuse in the neutral or ground circuit may result in an electrical shock hazard. Do not ground this appliance to a gas supply
pipe or hot water pipe. Keep any electrical supply cords and the
fuel supply hose away from any heated surfaces.
Your Cal Flame™ grill or cart must be plugged into a permanent,
grounded 110V outlet with a dedicated 15A GFCI breaker in accordance with local codes or the National Electrical Code, ANSI /
NFPA 70, or the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
CSA B149.1, or Propane Storage and Handling Code, B149.2),
as applicable.
Before you start cooking, clean the entire grill thoroughly with hot,
soapy water. This is necessary to remove residual solvents, oil and
grease used in the manufacturing process. The grates should also
be thoroughly cleaned in the same manner.
Never line the grill or side burners with aluminum foil.
Never use the grill or side burner in windy conditions. If used in a
consistently windy area a windbreak will be required. Always adhere to the specified clearances listed in this manual.
Keep all electrical supply cords and the rotisserie motor cord away
from the heated areas of the grill.
Never use the grill if the drip pan is not properly installed. Drip
pan should be pushed all the way to the rack located just under
the grill. Fire or explosion can result from an improperly installed
drip pan.
In the event that a burner goes out, turn burner knobs to the full
OFF position, fully open the grill hood and let it air out. Do not attempt to use the grill until the gas has had time to dissipate.
When the unit is not in use, be sure to turn off the gas at the LP
LTR20091036, Rev. B
2009 Barbecue Islands
Never allow clothing, pot holders or other flammable materials
come in contact with or be close to any grate, burner or hot surface until it has fully cooled. Never wear loose fitting or hanging
garments while using your grill. Fabric may ignite and result in
personal injury.
Do not use water on grease fires. Never pick up a flaming pan.
Turn the appliance off and smother the flaming pan with a tightfitting lid, a cookie sheet or a flat tray. For flaming grease outside
of the pan, smother it with baking soda or use a dry chemical or
foam-type fire extinguisher.
Always position handles of utensils so they do not extend over adjacent work areas or cooking areas. This reduces the risk of burns,
ignition of flammable materials, and spillage due to accidental contact with the utensils.
Always use the proper size pan. Select utensils with flat bottoms
large enough to cover the burner. The use of under-sized utensils
exposes the sides of the utensils to direct contact with a portion
of the flame. This can scorch utensils and hamper cleanup. Excessive flames on large stainless steel pots can result in permanent
discoloration. For best results, we recommend commercial quality
aluminum pans and utensils.
Never leave the grill and side burners unattended when in use.
When using pots and pans, boil-overs will cause smoking and
greasy boil-overs may ignite.
Gas sources to the grill and side burners must be regulated. Do
not operate grill or side burners if regulators have been removed,
fire or explosion can occur.
When handling LP gas line and connectors, do not allow them to
come in contact with any metal surfaces of the cart or cabinet. Do
not drop LP connectors.
Do not install or operate your grill unit in such a manner that the
cross ventilation openings are blocked. Fresh air must be able to
pass though installed vents to safeguard against residual gas accumulation. Failure to allow proper ventilation may cause fire or
Safety Instructions
When using the grill, do not touch the grill rack, burner grate, or
immediate surroundings as these areas become extremely hot and
can cause burns.

Safety Instructions
Do not reach over your grill or any other surfaces when hot or in
Do not heat any unopened glass or metal container of food on the
grill. Pressure may build up and cause the container to burst, possibly resulting in serious personal injury or damage to the grill.
Only use dry pot holders and do not use a towel or other bulky
cloth in place of pot holders. Moist or damp pot holders used on
hot surfaces can cause burns.
Spiders and other insects can nest in the burners of the grill and
block the gas and airflow to the burner ports. This creates a dangerous condition that can result in a fire behind the valve panel. Inspect and clean the burners periodically and follow the guidelines
in the Cleaning and Maintenance section of this manual.
Maintenance and Repair
Unless specifically recommended in this manual, do not repair or
replace any part of the grill. A qualified technician should perform
all service. Any repairs made by a non- LMS approved dealer technician will void your warranty.
Storage of a grill or cart indoors is permissible only if the supply
cylinder is disconnected and removed.
When your gas grill is not in use, turn off the gas at the supply
Do not store items of interest to children around or below the grill
or cart.
Never leave children unattended in the area where the grill is being used.

Similar to installing a drawer, you need to have a cutout on your barbecue island as shown below. Align the enclosure as shown, opening
facing out. Make sure the enclosure is aligned horizontally. Tighten the
mounting screws on both side of the enclosure to lock the enclosure in
place. Slide the griddle into the enclosure to test the installation.
Light Switch Installation
If you have the hardware interior island option, you will need to install
the light kit. The kit consists of a 12-volt light, a wiring harness and a
microswitch and bracketry.
The microswitch mounts to the bracket with a supplied set of screws
and nuts.
Once you mount the the switch bracketry, choose a location for the
light. The light can be mounted anywhere in the island that provides
you with the light you need for your internal storage area.
The 12-volt light portion of your kit will have the necessary mounting
hardware. Be sure to keep the light within the range of the provided
wire harness and the hot portions of the grill.

Cleaning and Maintenance
About Natural Stone
A natural characteristic of granite and marble is its inherent lack of
uniformity. Because it is a completely natural material, it can have a
great deal of variation in color, shade, finish, tint, hardness, strength,
and so on.
Any time you use natural stone, you can always expect differences
from one tile to the next. You will frequently see dry seams, pit or fossils. These areas are often filled in at the factory. Over time through
normal use, the fill may work its way out.
Even though stone tile is a natural product, it nevertheless can be affected by extremes in weather. Both marble and granite are decorative
and durable, but they have different compositions and wear differently
in the elements.
We recommend barbecue island owners keep their island covered if
they are concerned about damage from constant exposure to weather.
This is particularly true in areas where there is snow, ice, or very hot
Stone is porous, especially marble, and often has natural fissures in the
surface. Constant exposure to extreme heat or cold can cause these
natural features to expand and eventually crack.
Although the stone has been properly finished and is suitable for use in
an outdoor environment, Cal Spas does not apply a weather sealant to
our countertops. We never wish to second-guess how our customers
want to use their barbecues or the locale they will use them in, so we
leave the choice of applying a weather sealant entirely up to owners.
We do not recommend any specific brand or manufacturer, although
there are literally hundreds of excellent products on the market customers may choose from.
In addition to maintaining the stone tile surfaces, barbecue island owners need to know that the grout between the tile, while it is durable,
can also be affected by both extremes in weather and by normal use.
Grout is much easier to repair than stone tile and gaps between the tile
can cause water to seep into the barbecue island and cause damage
to the interior.
LTR20091036, Rev. B
2009 Barbecue Islands
In those instances where natural cracks occur, we recommend having
an experienced tile worker filling them with a material of a complementary color. After the filler sets and is sanded smooth, apply a weather
sealant to help prevent further cracking.
Granite Top
Clean stone surfaces with a few drops of neutral cleaner, stone soap
(available from Monticello Granite) or a mild liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Use a clean rag for best results.
Too much cleaner or soap may leave a film and cause streaks.
Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar or other acids on the
granite the high acid content may etch the surface.
Rinse the surface thoroughly after washing with the soap solution and
dry with a soft cloth.
Change the rinse water frequently.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Dust surfaces frequently
Clean surfaces with mild detergent or stone soap
Thoroughly rinse and dry the surface after washing
Blot up spills immediately
Don’t use vinegar, lemon juice or other cleaners containing acids.
Don’t use cleaners that contain acid such as bathroom cleaners,
grout cleaners or tub & tile cleaners.
Don’t use abrasive cleaners such as dry cleansers or soft cleansers.
Don’t mix bleach and ammonia; this combination creates a toxic
and lethal gas.
Scratches and Chips
Small scratches are visible because they are lighter in color than the
surrounding areas. Making them darker will hide them. On dark stones,
we have had success using permanent black magic markers. Do not
use them on lighter stones. Apply the marker to the scratch, let it dry,
and then rub it off the surrounding area.
Both marble and granite may chip when subjected to a sudden impact.
If you have a large chip, try to find the loose pieces. They can often be
epoxied back into place. The chip can also be filled with colored epoxy
to match the surrounding stone. Repairing this kind of damage should
be left to other knowledgeable professionals.
2009 Barbecue Islands
LTR2009103, Rev. B
Cleaning and Maintenance
If spillage occurs, then clean up as soon as possible.
Standing water or other liquids can deteriorate tile and grout, and
should always be removed.
Avoid hard blows that can chip the tile.
Protect against scratches, especially on natural stone tiles.
Protect against chipping by using a cutting board.
Wash with detergent solution, and rinse. To clean dingy grout, occasionally apply a solution of chlorine bleach and water to stand not
more than 5 minutes; rinse thoroughly and wipe dry. General-purpose
household cleaners may also be used if label says can be used on
ceramic tile; follow directions exactly. NEVER use scouring powders or
other abrasives as they will scratch the finish.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Care and Maintenance of Tile Grout
Grout may present a special cleaning problem because it is susceptible
to many staining agents.
Apply a silicone sealer to grout joints several times a year for maximum
In addition to keeping the grout clean, be sure to keep grout joints in
good repair. Scrape out loose, cracked or powdery joints and refill with
a good grout.
One common grouting trouble spot is the joint between the tub and
and the wall in your bathroom. As the house or tub settles, the grout
may crack and crumble. It’s relatively simple to remedy. Remove the
old grout with a sharp pointed tool, watching out that you don’t scratch
tile or tub. Then dry the joint thoroughly and fill with a flexible tub or
wall caulking compound, such as silicone rubber caulking.

Don’t use vinegar, lemon juice or other cleaners containing acids.
Don’t use cleaners that contain acid such as bathroom cleaners.
Don’t mix bleach and ammonia; this combination creates a toxic

Stainless Steel
All exposed stainless steel surfaces require special attention if you want
to keep them looking clean and bright. Following these simple instructions will help avoid scratching or damaging the finish and keep your
stainless steel attractive.
Cleaning instructions for grill interiors, including racks and burners, are
described after this section.
Although stainless steel grills will discolor and accumulate grime with
regular use, they can keep their original shine with periodic cleaning.
We strongly recommend using a surface protectant to prevent smudging and surface rust from accumulating.
The easiest way to clean the grill is immediately after cooking is completed. Doing so will extend the life of your grill, prevent grease fires,
and present a pleasant appearance while you grill.
To ensure safe and proper maintenance, we recommend you follow these directions carefully.
Clean internal parts of the grill regularly as determined by the
amount of use and foods cooked. The entire grill should be cleaned
at least once a year.
LTR20091036, Rev. B
2009 Barbecue Islands
In addition, keep the area around your grill clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and
liquids. Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
Cleaning Products and Materials
Oven cleaner
Cleansers such as Ajax or Comet
Steel wool pads
Wire brushes
Avoid using these common cleaning products and materials – they
will damage the surface of your stainless steel.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Mild dish detergent such as Dawn
Formula 409
Sheila Shine (exterior ONLY)
WD-40 (exterior ONLY)
We recommend these products for cleaning your stainless steel:
We have had best success with Sheila Shine, but WD-40 works very
well too. Sheila Shine is available in some hardware stores; WD-40
is widely available.
Some people have reported that using baking soda, lemon oil, olive
oil, vinegar, or club soda can be effective for cleaning light soil on all
stainless steel surfaces.
Do not use steel wool or wire brushes to scrub your grill. For light
soil, use a damp sponge or cloth. For heavier stains, use a ScotchBrite scrubber or similar product.
2009 Barbecue Islands
LTR2009103, Rev. B
Cleaning and Maintenance
1. Clean
Thoroughly clean stains, food, and grime using a sponge or damp
cloth with warm water and a mild dish soap. Use Fantastik or Formula 409 to remove heavier soil.
2. Rinse
Thoroughly rinse all surfaces and dry them completely with a clean
towel. Do not allow stainless steel to air dry.
3. Polish
We strongly recommend that you apply a surface protectant to all
exposed stainless steel surfaces.
Spray a small amount of WD-40 or Sheila Shine on a piece of paper
towel and rub with the grain over the surface of the appliance. Using
a clean terry cloth or paper towel, polish the appliance by rubbing
with the grain until excess liquid is removed and the surface shines. It
should not be oily to the touch, however some residue is acceptable.
Some people have reported that using lemon oil products such as Old
English furniture polish is effective for polishing stainless steel and protecting the surface.
Do not use WD-40 or Sheila Shine near food or on food
preparation surfaces as it is a health hazard. This includes
the interior of the grill, grill racks, stainless steel sinks, the
Caution inside of cabinets, warming drawers, and ovens.
LTR20091036, Rev. B
2009 Barbecue Islands
NEVER spray WD-40 or Sheila Shine near an open flame!
These products are extremely flammable while in their
aerosol forms.
Rust Removal
It is a common misconception that stainless steel does not rust. It does
not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as ordinary steel (it stains less),
but it is not stain-proof. If not properly protected and maintained, it
can corrode, pit, and discolor.
Because salt will accelerate rust and corrosion, grill or
barbecue island owners who live near the beach need
to be diligent in maintaining their stainless steel hardware. You need to clean and polish your stainless steel
frequently, apply a protectant, and ensure water does
not collect and puddle.
Periodically clean exterior stainless steel surfaces with WD-40 or Sheila
Shine and wipe down with a dry cloth or paper towel until surface is
free of rust. If there is significant rust or corrosion, use a Scotch-Brite
Cleaning and Maintenance
Although nitric acid (also called aqua fortis) can be effective for rust removal, it is a highly corrosive chemical. Because of the potential for injury or damage to your stainless steel, we do not recommend using nitric acid.
Both of these products will act as a surface protectant and help resist
smudges, stains, and rust.

LTR2009103, Rev. B
Cleaning and Maintenance
Cleaning the Interior of Your Grill
1. Thoroughly clean stains, food, and grime using a sponge or damp
cloth with warm water and a mild dish soap. Use Fantastik or Formula 409 to remove heavier soil.
2. Thoroughly rinse all surfaces and dry them completely with a clean
towel. Do not allow water to accumulate and puddle on stainless
steel. Water from various sources such as garden hoses contains
iron which will give the appearance of rusting on stainless steel. If
allowed to stand for long periods of time on stainless steel, it will
cause pitting.
3. The racks, flame tamers, and flavor bars can all be removed for
cleaning and are dishwasher safe.
Spiders and small insects occasionally inhabit or make nests in the
burner tubes, obstructing the gas flow. Sometimes this results in a
type of fire in and around the gas tubes called “flashback”. To reduce
the risk of flashback, this procedure should be followed at least once
a month or when your grill has not been used for an extended period
of time.
IMPORTANT: Prior to starting this procedure, turn OFF all of the gas
control knobs, shut off the fuel supply, and disconnect the fuel line.
The burners can be removed by removing the keeper pins and lifting
them out. The keeper pins are located under the grill toward the back.
They are used to keep the burners in place during shipping and are not
necessary to operate your grill. Remove burners from the grill by carefully lifting each burner up and away from the gas valve orifice.
Use a wire brush to clean the outer surface of each burner to remove
food residue and dirt. Clean any clogged ports with a stiff wire such as
an opened paper clip.
Inspect each burner for damage (cracks and holes). If any damage is
found, replace the burner and discontinue grill usage.
LTR20091036, Rev. B
2009 Barbecue Islands
Upon reinstallation, inspect the gas valve orifices for cleanliness and
condition and the location of the igniters. When you replace the burners, you do not need to replace the keeper pins.
Cooking Grates
Do not use a wire brush or stainless steel on any other part
of your grill or any other stainless steel surface except the
cooking grates or the griddle!
Use a solution equal parts detergent and hot water just as you would
for any cooking equipment. A stiff wire brush or steel wool may also be
helpful in removing grime and food deposits.
Drip Pan
The full width drip pan will collect grease from the main grill area.
The pan should be cleaned after every use to avoid the possibility of a
grease fire. Be sure to allow the drip pan to cool prior to cleaning. You
may clean the drip pan with a solution of warm soapy water. Make sure
to rinse thoroughly to avoid staining.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Steam Cleaning Your Grill
Steam cleaning the interior of your grill is very effective and will not
void your warranty. Portable hand-held steam cleaners are inexpensive
and do not require chemicals. You can steam clean all parts of your Cal
Flame grill, including the burners. When you are finished, make sure
you wipe all surfaces down.
If you spray the burners, ignite them and let them burn for about 10
minutes to prevent any water from accumulating inside them.
Covering Your Grill
When not in use and after cooling, cover your grill with our canvas
cover. (See your local Cal Flame dealer for details.) The cover will help
protect your grill from detrimental effects of weather and environmental pollutants. Never put a cover on a hot grill. Allow the grill to cool
before covering.
