Proper Placement and Clearance of Grill
Never use your gas grill in a garage, porch, shed,
breezeway or any other enclosed area. Your gas grill is
to be used outdoors only, at least 24 inches from the
back and side of any combustible surface. Your gas grill
should not be used under overhead combustible
construction . Do not obstruct the flow of ventilation air
around the gas grill housing.
• Do not install this outdoor gas grill in or on recreational
vehicles or boats
• Keep outdoor gas grill area clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable
vapors and liquids
• Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation
air. Check for this each time prior to using grill.
• Never connect an unregulated LP gas tank to your gas
grill. The gas pressure regulator assembly supplied with
your gas grill is adjusted to have an outlet pressure of 11"
water column (W.C.) for connection to an LP gas tank.
• Only use the pressure regulator and the hose assembly
supplied with your gas grill. Replacement pressure
regulators and hose assemblies must be those specified
in this manual.
• Have your LP gas tank filled by a reputable
propane gas dealer and visually inspected and re-
qualified at each filling.

• near this appliance.
• Never fill the tank beyond 80 percent full . If this
information is not followed exactly a fire causing
death or serious injury may occur.

be inspected before each use of the grill. If there
is excessive abrasion or wear or if the hose is cut,
it must be replaced prior to the grill being used
• Keep the gas pressure regulator hose away from
hot grill surfaces and dripping grease. Avoid
unnecessary twisting of hose. Visually inspect the
hose prior to each use for cuts, cracks, excessive
wear or other damage. If the hose appears
