GENERAL INFORMATION

Never attach an unregulated gas line to the appliance. Connection to an unregulated gas
line can cause excessive heat or fire.
Verify the type of gas supply to be used – either Natural Gas (N.G.) or Liquid Propane (L.P.) – and make sure the serial
plate agrees with that of the supply. Conversion kits are available separately for an additional cost which will enable you
to convert your grill from L.P. to N.G. or to convert your grill from N.G. to L.P. Please see your Frigidaire dealer for more
information.
NOTE: Always have a qualified service technician perform difficult conversions or modifications.
For natural gas installations, an installer must supply a gas shutoff valve that is easily accessible to the grill. All installer
supplied parts must conform to local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70, National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1.
All pipe sealants must be an approved type and resistant to the actions of L.P. gases. Never use pipe sealant on flare
fittings. All gas connections should be made by a competent qualified service technician and in accordance with local
codes and ordinances. In the absence of local codes, the installation must comply with the National Fuel Gas Code,
ANSI Z223.1. Gas conversion kits may be purchased separately. When ordering gas conversion kits, have the model
number and the type of gas (N.G. or L.P.) used for your grill. You can call 1-800-Frigidaire to buy the conversion kits.
This grill and its individual shut off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure
testing of the system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 PSIG (3.5 kPa.).
This grill 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 PSIG (3.5 kPa.).
The installation of this grill must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with National Fuel Code,
ANSI Z223.1a.
NATURAL GAS INSTALLATION
The gas inlet supply pressure should be between 5" and 14" water column (w.c.). A step down regulator is required if the
line pressure is in excess of 14" w.c. Inlet pressure must not exceed 14" water column (1/2 PSIG).
Check with your local gas utility company or with local codes for instructions on installing gas supply lines. Be sure to
check on type and size of run, and how deep to bury the line. If the gas supply line is too small, the grill will not operate
correctly.
Any joint sealant used must be an approved type and be resistant to chemical breakdown resulting from the reaction
with N.G.
NOTE: The gas line connection and the gas fitting must be the same diameter.
Installer supplied shutoff valve (not included). Place the shutoff valve in an accessible location to enable the gas supply
to be cut off to the unit.
NOTE: A flexible natural gas line is not included with Frigidaire Gallery grills. Natural gas flex line must be
purchased separately based on the distance of your grill location from the natural gas line. Please be sure to
check the size of your home's natural gas line fitting to make sure you get the right size connection for your
particular application. If you have questions, please consult your local natural gas distributor or qualified
service technician.
