• Never attempt to attach this grill to the
self-contained LP gas system of a
home, camper trailer or motor home.
• Do not use grill until leak-tested.
• If a leak is detected at any time, STOP
and call the fire department.
• If you cannot stop a gas leak,
immediately close LPcylinder valve
and call LP gas supplier or your fire
LP CYLINDER EXCHANGE
Many retailers that sell grills offer you the option of replacing
your empty LP cylinder through an exchange service. Use only
those reputable exchange companies that inspect, precision fill,
test and certify their cylinders. Exchange your cylinder only for an
OPD safety feature-equipped cylinder as described in the "LP
Cylinder" section of this manual.
• Always keep new and exchanged LP cylinders in upright
position during use, transit or storage.
• Leak test new and exchanged LP cylinders BEFORE connecting
HOSE & REGULATOR
PROPANE GAS MODELS:
Your barbeque is designed to operate on L.P. (propane) gas at a
pressure regulated at 2.74 kPa (11" water column). A regulator
preset to this pressure is supplied with the barbeque and MUST
This regulator is equipped with the Q.C.C. Type 1, quick connect
coupling system, which incorporates the following safety
features: (Figure 5)
• It will not allow gas to flow until a positive seal has been made
• It has a thermal element that will shut off the flow of gas between
115 and 150°C (240 and 300°F)
• It also has a flow-limiting device which, when activated, will
restrict the flow of gas to 0.28 cubic metres per hour (10 cubic feet
Prior to attaching the propane cylinder to the hose and regulator, be
sure the cylinder valve and the appliance valves are OFF. The
cylinder valve is turned off by rotating the handwheel (see Figure
3) clockwise (left to right) until it stops and all appliance valves
should be in the twelve o'clock position. When attaching the
regulator to the cylinder, make sure that the small probe in the
nipple is centered in the mating Q.C.C. 1 cylinder valve (see Figure 5
& 7b). Turn the right hand threaded Q.C.C.1 black nut onto the valve
in a clockwise motion until there is a positive stop.
DO NOT USE A WRENCH, HAND TIGHTEN ONLY.
WARNING: INDICATES AN POTENTIALLY
HAZARDOUS SITUATION WHICH, IF NOT AVOIDED,
COULD RESULT IN DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY.
Should the large black thermally sensitive coupling nut be exposed to
temperatures above 115 - 150°C, it will soften and allow the
regulator probe to disengage from the cylinder valve – thereby
shutting off the flow of gas. Should this occur, do not attempt to
reconnect the nut. Remove the entire regulator assembly, and
replace it with a new one.
The cause of the excessive heat should be determined and
corrected before operating your barbeque again. The regulator
probe also contains a flow-sensing element, which will limit the
flow of gas to the regulator to a manageable amount (0.28 cubic
metres/hour) in the event of a hose or regulator rupture. If it is
evident that the flow control device has been activated, the cause
of the excessive flow should be determined and corrected before
using your barbeque again.
NOTE: IMPROPER LIGHTING PROCEDURES CAN CAUSE THE FLOW
CONTROL TO ACTIVATE, RESULTING IN REDUCED HEAT OUTPUT.
IF THIS IS SUSPECTED, RESET THE FLOW CONTROL BY SHUTTING
OFF ALL BURNER CONTROLS AND THE CYLINDER VALVE. WAIT
30 SECONDS, THEN TURN THE CYLINDER VALVE ON EXTREMELY
SLOWLY - WAIT 5 SECONDS AND TURN THE BURNER VALVE ON
AND LIGHT AS NORMAL.
• Never connect a propane gas barbeque to an unregulated propane
gas supply or any other gas. Do not attempt to alter the hose
or regulator in any way.
• The connection fitting must be protected when disconnected
from the propane tank. If the fitting is allowed to drag on the
ground, nicks and scratches could occur resulting in a leak when
connected to the propane tank.
• Do not attempt to disconnect any gas fitting while your barbecue
is in operation.
PROPANE AND NATURAL GAS MODELS:
• The LP-GAS supply cylinder must be disconnected when this
outdoor cooking gas appliance is not in use.
• Do not allow any grease (or other hot material) to fall onto the
hose, or allow the hose to come in contact with any hot surfaces
of the barbeque.
• Visually inspect the entire length of the hose assembly before
each use of the barbeque. If it is evident there is excessive
abrasion/wear, or the hose is cut, it must be replaced prior to
using your barbeque. Only the hose assembly as specified in
the Parts List should be used.
