Safety Symbols

The symbols and boxes shown below explain what each heading means. Read and follow all of the messages found throughout the manual.

DANGER

DANGER: Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.

WARNING

WARNING: Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.

Installation Safety Precautions

This kit converts your grill for natural gas use at 7 inch water column supply pressure. Verify supply pressure with your local gas company. If supply pressure is different than 7 inch water column pressure, contact a certified plumber for assistance.

Not for use with LP gas.

If grill is certified for use in Canada, this conversion kit Does Not nullify that certification.

USE AND CARE

Natural Gas Connections and Service Regulators Above 1/2 psi.

Prior to 1998, all residual gas service regulators were set with an outlet pressure of 7 inches water column.

In the 1998 edition of NFPA 54, the National Fuel Gas Code, a change was made allowing service regulators of 2 and 5 psi.

With this change it was also required that an in line regulator be connected between the service regulator and the appliance regulator if the 2 or 5 psi system is used. This additional regulator is not supplied with the product.

It is possible for a consumer, making the connection themselves, or a plumber, not checking, to tap into a 2 or 5 psi line. If a pressure of 2 psi or greater is supplied to the appliance regulator on certain grills it will shut down and not deliver any gas to the grill. Other concerns are the quick disconnect socket and hose which are only rated to 1/2 psi.

If the quick disconnect socket, hose, and grill are properly connected and still not getting gas, delivery pressure needs to be verified. If pressure is greater than 1/2 psi, make sure that an in line regulator is present.

Once the grill has been over-pressured,the regulator may or may not have been damaged. The best practice is to replace the regulator.

WARNING

Do not attempt to repair or alter this conversion kit for any assumed defect. Any modification to this assembly will void your warranty and create the risk of a gas leak and fire. Use only authorized replacement parts supplied by manufacturer.

CAUTION

CAUTION: Indicates a potentially hazardous situation or unsafe practice which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury.

DANGER

Incorrect connection can result in a gas leak with possibility of fire.

2 • Natural Gas Conversion Kit

This unit should be hard plumbed using components that meet National Fuel Gas Code.

WARNING

Do not use flexible gas hose supplied for Drop-inModels.

Connecting Your Grill to the Natural Gas Source.

1.A professionally-installedshut-offvalve between the supply piping and the socket is recommended, but not required, by the National Fuel Gas Code. Socket connection must be made outdoors.

2.Coat the gas supply pipe nipple with gas resistant pipe dope or approved teflon tape. Screw socket onto gas supply pipe (house gas source) as shown in Figure A below, andwrench-tighten.

CAUTION

The quick disconnect socket should never be connected to the grill. Direction of gas flow is indicated on the socket.

Quick disconnect socket

House piping

Figure A

3.Pull back the sleeve on the quick disconnect socket and insert the unattached end of the gas hose into the socket. Release the sleeve and continue pushing the hose into the socket until the sleeve snaps into the locked position. See Figure B.

Gas hose

Sleeve

4.When the quick disconnect socket and the gas hose are connected, a valve in the socket opens automatically to permit full gas flow. When the gas hose is disconnected, the valve in the socket instantly and positively shuts off the flow of gas. Because the valve in the socket positively shuts off the flow of gas, the grill can be disconnected from the gas source by disconnecting the gas hose from the quick disconnect socket. The socket should be left attached to the gas source (house piping). Figure C, below, shows properly connected hose and socket.

Figure C

With proper assembly, the gas hose cannot be removed without pushing the quick disconnect sleeve back. To disconnect, push sleeve back and pull plug out of sleeve (this automatically shuts off gas).

Please Note: Hose and assembly are C.S.A. listed for natural gas, manufactured gas, mixed gas and for liquefied petroleum and for LP Gas-Airmixtures on basis of 0.64 specific gravity for 1000 BTU’s per cubic foot of gas at 0.3 in. water column pressure drop. Only ANSI Z21.54 approved hoses should be used with this grill.

The appliance and its individual shut off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing on that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).

The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psi (3.5kPa).

WARNING

Do not use hard metal piping of any kind to connect this type of grill to natural gas source. Use only hose specified by manufacturer. Using hard metal piping or convoluted metal tubing is an unsafe practice. Movement

Figure B

of the grill can cause breakage of metal pipe.

Leak Testing

1.Turn all grill control knobs to OFF.

2.Be sure gas hose is tightly connected to gas source.

3.Completely open gas source. If you hear a rushing sound, turn gas off immediately. There is a major leak at the connection.

Correct before proceeding.

CAUTION

CAUTION: Sideburner lid must be open when sideburner is in operation, if so equipped.

Burner Flame Check

4. Brush soapy solution onto area circled below.

5.If “growing” bubbles appear, there is a leak. Close gas source immediately and tighten connection.If leaks cannot

Remove cooking grates and flame tamers. Light burners, rotate knobs from HIGH toLOW. You should see a smaller flame in low position than seen on HIGH. Perform burner flame check on sideburner also. Always check flame prior to each use. If only low flame is seen refer to "Sudden drop or low flame" in theTroubleshooting Section.

6. Always close gas source after performing leak test.

Safety Tips

When grill is not in use, turn off all control knobs and gas source.

Before each use, check to see if hoses are cut, worn or kinked. Replace damaged hoses before using grill. Use only valve/hose/regulator specified by manufacturer.
