A strong gas smell, or the hissing sound of gas
indicates a serious problem with your gas grill or
the LP gas tank. Failure to immediately follow the
steps listed below could result in a fire or
explosion that could cause serious bodily injury,
death, or property damage.
• Shut off gas supply to the gas grill.
• Turn the control knobs to OFF position.
• Put out any flame with a proper fire extinguisher.
• Open Grill Lid.
• Get away from the LP gas tank.
• Do not try to fix the problem yourself.
• If odor continues or you have a fire you can not
extinguish, call your fire department. Do not call
near the LP gas tank because your telephone is
a form of electrical device and could create a
spark resulting in fire and/or explosion.
NOTE: The normal flow of gas through the pressure
regulator and hose assembly can create a humming
noise. A low volume of noise is perfectly normal and
will not interfere with operation of the grill. If humming
noise is loud and excessive you may need to purge
air from the gas line or reset the pressure regulator
excess gas flow device. This purging procedure
should be done every time a new LP gas tank is
connected to your grill. For help with this procedure
refer to page 16, Item 4 of "If Grill Still Fails To Light",
or call the Grill Information Center at 1-800-913-8999.
CAUTION: Beware of Flash-Back
: Spiders and small insects occasionally
spin webs or make nests in the grill burner tubes
during transit and warehousing. These webs can lead
to gas flow obstruction which could result in a fire in
and around burner tubes. This type of fire is known as
"FLASH-BACK" and can cause serious damage to
your grill and create an unsafe operating condition for
Although an obstructed burner tube is not the only
cause of "FLASH-BACK", it is the most common
To reduce the chance of "FLASH-BACK", you must
clean the burner tubes before assembling your grill,
and at least once a month in late summer or early fall
when spiders are most active. Also perform this
burner tube cleaning procedure if your grill has not
been used for an extended period of time.
See Cleaning Burner Tubes and Ports on page # 18.
Burner Flame Check
Visually check the burner flames prior to each use. The
flames should look like picture, if they do not, refer to the
cleaning burner tubes and ports, see page 15 of this
