USE & CARE

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

Prior to 1998, all residential 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. The included quick disconnect socket and hose should not be used at pressures above 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 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 of the grill can cause breakage of metal pipe.

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, and wrenchtighten.

CAUTION

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

Figure B

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 shows properly connected hose and socket.

USE AND CARE CON’T.

Figure C

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).

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.
