• Follow the ‘LEAK TEST’ instructions before lighting your
barbeque for the first time, every time a propane cylinder is
refilled, if any gas component is changed, if the regulator flow-
limiting device has been activated, after prolonged periods of
storage or non-use or at least once per season.
LIQUID PROPANE GAS UNITS ONLY:
• Use the pressure regulator and hose assembly that is supplied
with your gas barbecue.
• Do not attempt to disconnect the gas regulator and hose
assembly or any gas fitting while your barbecue is in operation.
• A dented or rusty liquid propane cylinder may be hazardous
and should be checked by your liquid propane supplier. Do not
use a liquid propane cylinder with a damaged valve.
• Although your liquid propane cylinder may appear to be empty,
gas may still be present, and the cylinder should be transported
and stored accordingly.
• If you see, smell or hear the hiss of escaping gas from the
liquid propane cylinder:
1. Move away from liquid propane cylinder.
2. Do not attempt to correct the problem yourself.
3. Call your fire department.
FAILURE TO ENSURE THE ABOVE MAY RESULT IN
A HAZARDOUS FIRE OR EXPLOSION CAUSING
SERIOUS BODILY INJURY AND/OR PROPERTY
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR OR ALTER THE
HOSE/VALVE/REGULATOR FOR ANY "ASSUMED"
DEFECT. ANY MODIFICATION TO THIS ASSEMBLY
WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY AND CREATE THE
RISK OF A GAS LEAK AND FIRE. USE ONLY
AUTHORIZED REPLACEMENT PARTS SUPPLIED BY
NATURAL GAS MODELS:
• Never use with propane, or any other gases.
• The appliance and its individual shut-off valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping during any pressure
testing of the system at test pressure in excess of 3.5 kPa
• The appliance 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
pressures equal to or less than 3.5 kPa (1/2 p.s.i.).
• The gas supply hose must be a minimum of 3.1 m (10 ft) and a
maximum of 3.6 m (12 ft). Always disconnect hose at quick
connect coupling when storing your barbeque.
• Inspect and clean quick connect coupling, and keep it protected
when it’s not in use.
CLEANING & MAINTENANCE
CHECK TO ENSURE THE BURNER HAS A
GOOD FLAME EACH TIME IT IS TURNED ON.
It is possible that very small insects could make webs or nest in the venturi tubes, as they are
naturally attracted to the smell of gas. This will partially or completely block the flow of gas through
the venturi and is indicated by a smoky yellow flame, and/or a burner that is difficult or impossible to
light. Ultimately, it may cause the gas to burn outside the venturis, which can cause a fire resulting in
damage to your barbeque and potential personal injury. IF THIS HAPPENS IMMEDIATELY SHUT OFF THE PROPANE AT
CYLINDER. When the barbeque has cooled, follow the "How to Clean" steps above.
CLEANING VENTURI TUBES
Periodic cleaning of the venturi tubes is recommended for optimum burner
performance, especially after prolonged storage or a period of non-use.
How to Clean:
• Remove the burner.(refer to ‘ASSEMBLY PROCEDURE’).
• Use a venturi cleaning brush and insert the brush into the venturi tube 1 inch
at a time, then remove to prevent moving the debris upwards (Figure 8).
• As you remove the brush head inspect and discard any debris
• Continue this procedure until the entire lengths of all venturi tubes are free
• Reinstall burner (as per assembly instructions), ensure the venturi tubes
are seated over the valve orifices (Figure 1).
• Perform a Leak Test.
