Excess flow safety valve reset procedure

The new regulators are equipped with a safety device that restricts the gas flow in the event of a gas leak. However, unsafe
practices of grill operation could activate the safety device without having a gas leak.
A sudden shut off of the gas flow typically occurs if you open the LP tank valve rapidly, or if one or more of the burner
control knobs is in an open position when opening the LP tank valve.
This procedure is effective with all LP Tank sizes as well as Natural Gas. When performing the procedure on a
Natural Gas model, simply substitute "Natural Gas valve" for "LP Tank".
To ensure the procedure is safely and successfully performed, please carefully follow these instructions:
1. Close the LP tank valve.
2. Turn all burner control knobs to the OFF position.
3. Disconnect the regulator from the LP tank.
4. Open the lid of the grill.
5. Turn burner control knobs to HIGH.
6. Wait at least 1 minute.
7. Turn burner control knobs OFF.
8. Wait for at least 5 minutes.
9. Re-connect the regulator to the LP tank.
10. Slowly turn the LP tank valve ¼ turn at a time and have the valve all the way open.
11. With the lid open: For grill with ignition button: turn on only ONE front burner control knob to the HIGH position. Ignite the
grill by pushing the ignition button. For grill with an automatic ignition: Push down the control knob you want to light, turn
counterclockwise until you hear the ignition click.
12. After the first front burner is lit, turn on the other control knob(s) to the HIGH position. **If you have more than two burners,
turn them on only ONE AT A TIME.
13. When all front burners are lit, close the grill lid.
14. Wait for 10-15 minutes; the temperature should reach 400 – 450°F
WARNING: The cylinder valve always has to be above the horizontal position, for the cylinder to have only vapor
