Cleaning and Maintenance

To ensure a proper working unit the following proper
care and maintenance is suggested.
Cleaning Cooking Grids
We suggest you wash your cooking grids in a mild
soap and warm water solution. You can use a wash
cloth or soft brush to clean your cooking grids.
Cleaning Heat diffusers
Periodically you should wash the heat diffusers in a
soap and warm water solution. Use a soft brush to
remove stubborn burnt-on cooking residue. The heat
diffusers should be dry before you reinstall them.
Cleaning Grease Tray
The grease tray should be emptied and wiped down
periodically and washed in a mild detergent and warm
water solution. A small amount of sand or cat litter may
be placed in bottom of grease tray to absorb the grease.
Check the grease tray frequently, don't allow excess
grease to accumulate and overflow out of the grease
Annual Cleaning of Grill Interior
Burning-off the grill after every use will keep it ready for
your next use. However, once a year you should give
the entire grill a thorough cleaning to keep it in top
operating condition. Follow these steps.
1. Turn all burner valves to full OFF position.
2. Turn LP gas tank valve to full OFF position.
3. Detach LP gas hose and pressure regulator
assembly from your gas grill. Inspect for any damage
and replace as necessary with manufacturer
replacement part number found on parts list.
4. Remove and clean heat diffusers, cooking grids and
grill burners.
5. Cover each gas valve orifice with aluminum foil.
6. Brush inside and bottom of grill with a nylon brush,
and wash with a mild soap and warm water solution.
Rinse thoroughly and let dry.
7. Remove the aluminum foil, then reinstall heat
diffusers, and cooking grids.
8. Reconnect gas source and observe burner flame for
correct operation.
Cleaning Exterior Surface
We suggest you wash your grill using a mild soap and
warm water solution. You can use a wash cloth or
sponge for this process. Do not use abrasives or a
brush that might remove finish during the cleaning
Cleaning Exterior Stainless Steel Surfaces
Weathering and extreme heat can cause exterior
stainless steel surfaces to turn tan in color. Machine oils
used in manufacturing process of stainless steel can also
cause this tanning color. Use a stainless steel cleaner to
polish stainless steel surfaces of your grill. Never use
abrasive cleaners or scrubbers because they will scratch
and damage your grill.
Cleaning Burner Tubes and Burner Ports
To reduce the chance of "FLASH-BACK" the procedure
below should be followed at least once a month in late
summer or early fall when spiders are most active or
when your grill has not been used for a period of time.
1. Turn all burner valves and gas tank valve to off position.
2. Detach the LP gas pressure regulator assembly from
your gas grill.
3. Remove cooking grids, heat diffusers, and grease tray
from the grill.
4. Remove the screws from the underside of each burner
and lift the burners up and away from the gas valve orifice.
5. Using a bent stiff wire in the shape of a hook , air hose
or a bottle brush, run it through the burner tube and inside
several times to remove any debris.
6. Replace burners, see illustration below.
Step 1. Remove screw which locks ignite wire.
Step 2. Take off R clip which fixes burner at the end side.
Step 3. Locate the new burner onto the orifice.
(a) Insert the burner over the main burner gas valve .
(b) Make sure the orifice stud (C1) is inside the burner
venture (D1) as shown in (Fig.23).
Step 4. Secure the main burner on the back wall use R
clip, and fix on ignite wire.
