Line pressure testing:
Testing above 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa) or 14 inches (35.5 cm) W.C.
• The side burner and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures greater than
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Testing below 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa) or 14 inches (35.5 cm) W.C.
(gauge) or lower:
• The side burner 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).
Side burners are equipped for use with Natural gas. They
are design-certified by CSA International for L.P. (propane or
butane) gases with appropriate conversion.
Side burners are set for natural gas use and have a pressure
regulator with 1/2" female pipe threads.
rear of side
The supply line shall be equipped with an approved shutoff
valve. This valve should be located in the same area as the side
burner and should be in a location that allows ease of opening
and closing. Do not block access to the shutoff valve. The valve
is for turning on or shutting off gas to the appliance.
L.P. gas conversion from a local L.P. gas supply:
Conversion must be made by a qualified person. A qualified
natural gas technician shall provide the L.P. gas supply to the
selected side burner location in accordance with the National
Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54 and local codes.
To convert to L.P. gas, the L.P. Gas Conversion Kit No. 4396311
must be used. Follow Instructions included with kit.
L.P. gas conversion using an L.P. fuel tank:
To convert to L.P. gas, the L.P. Gas Conversion Kit
No. 4396311 must be used. Follow Instructions included with kit.
An L.P. gas cylinder, not larger than 20 pounds, must be
Outdoor Side Burner Installation
Excessive Weight Hazard
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
This installation must conform with local codes and ordinances.
In the absence of local codes, installations must conform with
either the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1, or CAN/CGA-
B149.1 Natural Gas and Propane installation code.
1. Place side burner into outdoor enclosure, but leave enough
room in back to connect to gas supply.
Copies of the standards listed may be obtained from:
8501 East Pleasant Valley Rd.
Cleveland, Ohio 44131-5575
Use a new CSA International approved "outdoor"
gas supply line.
Securely tighten all gas connections.
If connected to LP, have a qualified person make sure
gas pressure does not exceed 11" (28 cm) water
Examples of a qualified person include:
licensed heating personnel,
authorized gas company personnel, and
authorized service personnel.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
2. Make gas connections.
A combination of pipe fittings must be used to connect the
outdoor side burner to the existing gas line.
