Gas Requirements
GENERAL INFORMATION
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 local 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 70-1990, and the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1-1998.
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 Z223.1-1998. Gas conversions 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.
This grill and its individual shut off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during
any pressure testing of that 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 shut-off 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-1998.
Installation in Canada must be in accordance with the Standard Can1-b149.1 and or .2 (installation code for
gas burning appliances and equipment) and local codes.
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 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.
Attach the natural gas regulator (supplied with your grill) to the brass fitting coming out the bottom, right side
of the grill (be sure the arrow on the regulator is pointing up towards the grill). Attach your gas line to the
3/8" flare fitting coming out of the natural gas regulator under the grill.
NOTE: The gas line connection and the gas fitting must be the same diameter.
Installer supplied shut-off valve (not included) - Place the shut-off 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 Electrolux Icon 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.
Never attach an unregulated gas line to the appliance. Connection to an unregu-
lated gas line can cause excessive heat or fire.
