Outdoor Installation FAQ

When determining a suitable location, take into account concerns such as exposure to wind, proximity to traffic paths, and keeping any gas or electrical supply lines as short as possible. Locate the grill only in a well-ventilated area. Never locate the grill inside a building garage, breezeway, shed, or other such enclosure area without an approved ventilation system. During heavy use, the grill will produce a lot of smoke. Ensure there is an adequate area for the smoke to dissipate. This appliance must only be used in an above-ground, open-air situation with natural ventilation, without stagnant areas, where gas leakage and products of combustion are rapidly dispersed by wind and natural convection. Any enclosure in which the appliance is used must comply with one of the following:
Within a partial enclosure that includes an overhead cover and no more than two walls.

Within a partial enclosure that includes an overhead cover and more than two walls, the following shall apply:

• At least 25% of the total wall area is completely open; and

• At least 30% of the remaining wall area is open and unrestricted.

In the case of balconies, at least 20% of the total of the side, back and front wall areas shall be and remain open and unrestricted.

Any enclosure with walls on all sides, but at least one permanent opening at ground level, and no overhead cover. DONOT use the barbecue in buildings, garages, sheds, breezeways, or other such enclosed areas. This unit is for Outdoor Use Only!

IF YOU SMELL GAS, your installer has not done a proper job of checking for leaks. If the connections are not perfectly sealed, you can have a small leak and therefore a faint gas smell. Finding a leak is not a “do-it-yourself” procedure. Some leaks can only be found with the burner control in the “ON” position. This must be done only by a qualified technician.

Only use 9kg approved ULPG bottles. Certain liquid propane dealers may fill liquid propane cylinders for use in the barbecue beyond cylinder filling capacity. This overfilling may create a dangerous condition. Overfilled tanks can build up excess pressure. As a safety device, the tank’s pressure relief valve will vent propane gas vapor to relieve this excess pressure. This vapor is combustible and therefore can be ignited.

To reduce this danger, you should take the following safety precautions:

1. When you have your tank filled, be sure you tell the supplier to fill it to no more than ¾ (75%) of its total filling capacity.

2. If you own or use an extra tank, or have a disconnected tank, you should never store it near or under the barbecue unit or heat box, or near any other ignition or heat source.
     • NEVER store a spare ULPG cylinder under or near the unit.
     • NEVER fill the tank beyond ¾ full. A fire causing death or serious injury may         occur.
     • NEVER use a dented or rusty ULPG tank.
