Thank you for choosing a new REAL SMOKE CHITWOOD BROILER for your kitchen. All our
broilers are designed to give you years of trouble-free service. The guidelines in this manual
are designed to ensure not only the safe and efficient installation of your CHITWOOD
BROILER, but to maximize the quality of the broiler’s production.
Your CHITWOOD BROILER shipped from the factory in excellent condition. When you receive
the Broiler, carefully inspect the carton for any signs of damage. If any damage is noted,
immediately file a claim with the trucking company. Failure to contact the trucking company
immediately may result in their refusal of your claim.
PREPARATION FOR INSTALLATION
After uncrating the Broiler, remove all items from the top of the broiler (hood, grates and
insert). Remove the drawers and check the lower areas for any items packed below. You
are ready to install the 6” sanitary legs and gas pressure regulator. These items can be
found inside the broiler.
With the help of several people, carefully lay the Broiler on its side and install the four legs in
the threaded receptacles on the bottom of the Broiler. If you ordered your CHITWOOD
BROILER with casters, please refer to the special note under the section titled “Special
Instructions for Broilers with Casters.”
Before setting the Broiler upright, ensure that the four legs are securely tightened to the
bottom of the Broiler. The legs provided with this Broiler are equipped with special leveling
pads. Before setting the Broiler on the legs, screw the leveling pads fully clockwise. Only
after the Broiler is set upright should the Broiler be leveled. The use of a spirit level is
recommended to accomplish satisfactory leveling of the Broiler.
All CHITWOOD BROILERS are supplied from the factory with a gas pressure regulator.
The regulator supplied with the unit must not be omitted or altered in any fashion. Your
Broiler is supplied with a separate regulator, which must be installed at the rear of the
Broilers, directly to the gas inlet pipe of the Broiler. Care must be taken to ensure the
regular is installed with the directional arrow which is cast on the bottom of the regulator
pointing toward the direction of the flow of gas into the Broiler.
For optimum safety, the following installation clearances must be strictly followed when
installing your CHITWOOD BROILER. (FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES WILL
RESULT IN LOSS OF WARRANTY AND A POSSIBLE DANGEROUS CONDITION.)
The Broiler is designed for installation on combustible flooring and adjacent to combustible
wall materials with at least 10” clearance to the back and side. Alternately, the Broiler may
be installed without legs on a noncombustible curb or platform with the front of the Broiler
projecting 3 inches beyond the front of the curb or platform only when installed with the
corresponding optional stainless steel stand.
