BEFORE GRILLING

SHIPMENT ARRIVING DAMAGED:
VISIBLE SHIPPING DAMAGES
If your shipment arrives with visible damage to the box/carton, be sure the damage is noted on the bill of freight or express receipt and signed by the person making the delivery. File claim for damages immediately, regardless of the extent of damage.

CONCEALED DAMAGES
If damages are unnoticed until the grill is unpacked, notify the transportation company or carrier immediately and file a concealed damage claim with them. This should be done within (5) days of the delivery date. Be sure to hold on to the box/carton for inspection. We cannot assume responsibility for damage or loss incurred in transit.

TESTING FOR LEAKS
Create a soapy water solution of 1 part soap and 3 parts water. Confirm that all control knobs are in the off position. Turn on the fuel supply. For natural gas, turn the valve handle ¼ turn to align with the gas flow. For LP, turn the cylinder valve counter clockwise one full rotation. Apply the soap solution generously by paint brush or squirt bottle on all connections and fittings. If bubbles appear to grow on any of the connections, you have a gas leak. IMMEDIATELY turn off the gas supply. Wash off the soapy solution with cold water and dry. Tighten the loose joint or replace the faulty part with manufacturer-recommended replacement parts. DO NOT attempt to repair the L.P. cylinder valve if it is damaged. The only way to safely resolve a damaged cylinder is to replace it by calling an authorized gas appliance service technician or an LP gas dealer. Repeat the leak test to ensure that no leaks are present. Do not use the appliance until the leak is corrected.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
BE MINDFUL OF WIND DIRECTION
When selecting a suitable location, consider important factors such as exposure to the wind and foot traffic patterns. If you have a freestanding grill, position it so the prevailing wind blows into the front control panel (at your back when grilling), allowing for proper front to rear airflow. Built-in grills located in areas with prevailing winds should be protected by a wind barrier, wind deflector, or wind guard. The grill is designed to pull in air from the front and exhaust through the rear of the unit. Winds hitting the back of the grill directly may cause problems. Be sure wind doesn’t blow into the hood gap.

GAS LINE LENGTH
Keep all gas supply lines as short as possible. Gas lines lose pressure over distance and with each elbow or “t” fitting added. This drop in pressure affects grill performance.

PROPER LEVELING
Proper leveling during installation is critical. A grill that is out of level will cause erratic burner combustion and inefficient, uneven heating. The grill should be level in all directions. Adjustments may need to be made each time when moving a freestanding unit.

CONSTRUCTION ZONES
Keep all stainless steel products away from construction zones. Construction debris such as (but not limited to) stone dust, stucco, and lime dust could damage or permanently discolor stainless steel products. Keep all caustic chemicals including chlorine and pool cleaning products away from stainless steel at all times.

INSTALLATION

Clearance between grill and strictly non-combustible wall (i.e. brick wall, Clearance Fig. 1). The grill must have a minimum of 4” right, left and rear clearance from any non-combustible wall. This allows for proper ventilation and helps prevent dangerous overheating.

This can be accomplished by brick or a metal stud finished with non-combustible substrate. Clearance Fig. 2). The grill must have a minimum of 14” right, left and rear clearance from the protected combustible wall. (The 4” non-combustible material clearance, plus an additional 10” clearance between the grill and protected wall.)

NOTE: ALL BBQ ISLANDS MUST BE MANUFACTURED FROM “NON-COMBUSTILBLE” MATERIAL. If combustible material is being used, a Summerset grill liner is required.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
For the minimum clearances between the grill and any side or rear walls, your setup must fall within one (or more) of the following

SIDE AND REAR WALL CLEARANCES
Clearance between grill and combustible wall (Clearance Fig. 3). The grill must have a minimum of 18” right, left and rear clearance from any combustible wall.

BACK SPLASH CLEARANCE (IF APPLICABLE)
If a non-combustible backsplash exists, it must have a minimum of a 4” clearance from the rear of the grill (to allow for proper ventilation and help prevent dangerous overheating. Clearance Fig. 4).

OVERHEAD CONSTRUCTION AND EXHAUST HOOD REQUIREMENTS
This grill is designed for outdoor use only. DO NOT use this grill inside a building, garage, or enclosed area. DO NOT use this grill in or on a recreational vehicle or boat.
When installing this grill in a combustible surround, a Summerset insulating jacket/grill liner must be used.A minimum five (5) foot clearance is required between the countertop and the overhead construction.When installed under combustible overhead construction, the area above the cooking surface of the grill must be covered with an exhaust hood. The exhaust hood provides the protection for the combustible overhead construction.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
DO NOT use this appliance under unprotected combustible overhead construction. When installed under overhead non-combustible construction, an exhaust hood is highly recommended.

EXHAUST HOOD REQUIREMENTS
When using an exhaust hood, the area above the cooking surface of the grill must be covered with a hood larger than the cooking area of the grill, AND with a minimum of 600 CFM (cubic feet per minute) for proper outdoor application Select the proper height to mount the hood. Take into consideration the stature of the person or persons who will be cooking. A height of 30″ to 36″ above the cooking surface will suit most users. If mounted at a height greater than 36″ above the cooking surface, the hood should be at least 6″ wider than the cooking appliance to provide a proper capture of heat and grease. (Refer to the range manufacturer’s guidelines) Once the proper height is established, draw a level line where the bottom of the hood will rest. If practical, mount a board equal to the width of the hood along the line so you may rest the hood on it while installing.

GAS REQUIREMENTS

GAS LINES
Never connect a gas line directly to the grill. A pressure regulator must be installed on all gas equipment. Removing or failing to install the pressure regulator can result in fire and serious personal injury and will void the warranty

NATURAL GAS AND LIQUID PROPANE REQUIREMENTS
MINIMUM PRESSURE REQUIREMENTS Ensure the gas supplied meets the minimum pressure requirements. See below table for gas requirements measure in water column (w.c.) pressure:

Gas Type Maximum                       Minimum
Natural Gas 7” w.c.                          4” w.c.
Liquid Propane 14” w.c.                       11” w.c.

Both the regulator and burner orifices have been tuned for the type of gas specified on the rating plate. Converting to a different type of gas requires a conversion kit. Conversion kits are included with this grill and located with the manual. Converting gases may require additional parts not included with this grill. (See Gas Conversion section for details).

IMPORTANT
All installation and all installation parts must conform to local codes with the National Electrical Code, ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA 70 latest edition and the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 in the U.S. and CGA-B149.1/.2 in Canada

NATURAL GAS REQUIREMENTS

  • Summerset Professional Grills recommends that only qualified licensed professionals perform the required plumbing on this product.
  •  Check the Rating Plate to make sure the gas supply you are hooking up to is the gas type the grill is manufactured for.
  •  To ensure satisfactory performance, the gas supply line must be sized to accommodate the total BTU requirements of all the gas-fired equipment that will be connected to that line.
  •  In no case should pipe less than 1/2” inside diameter or 1” outside diameter ever be used to connect this product.

NOTE: DO NOT use any tape, pipe dope or threading compound on any flare fitting. This will cause a clog in the regulator and prevent your grill from functioning properly.

CONNECTING TO THE NG REGULATOR

LIQUID PROPANE TANK REQUIREMENTS
Turn off the gas at the supply when grill is not in use. Please ensure:

  •  The LP gas tank has a shutoff valve, terminating in an LP gas supply tank valve outlet that is compatible with a Type 1 tank connection device. The LP gas tank must also have a safety relief device that has a direct communication with the vapor space of the tank.
  •  The tank supply system must be arranged for vapor withdrawal.
  •  The LP gas tank used must have a collar to protect the tank valve.

Never connect an unregulated LP gas tank to your gas grill. The gas regulator assembly supplied with your gas grill is adjusted to have an outlet pressure of an estimated 11” water column (W.C.) for connection to an LP gas tank.

  1.  Use a standard 20 lbs. LP tank with QCC  1 fitting
  2.  Grills set up for LP gas come equipped with an LP hose regulator assembly for connection to a standard 20 lbs. LP cylinder (Type 1)

The hose and regulator are connected in the following manner:
NOTE: DO NOT use any tape, pipe dope or threading compound on any flare fitting. This will cause a clog in the regulator and prevent your grill from functioning properly.

CONNECTING TO THE LP TANK
Insert the regulator inlet into the cylinder valve and turn the black coupling nut clockwise until the coupling nut is hand tight. DO NOT over-tighten this connection.
To disconnect the coupling nut, first make sure the main cylinder valve is turned off. Grasp the coupling nut and turn counter clockwise. The inlet will then disengage.

FILLING AND REFILLING LP GAS CYLINDERS
All purging and refilling of LP gas cylinders must be performed by qualified personnel in the LP gas industry. Never store a spare LP gas cylinder under or near this appliance.
Never fill the LP gas cylinder beyond 80 percent full. Failure to follow these instructions may result in explosion, personal injury or death. LP gas grill models are designed for use with a standard 20 lb. liquid propane gas (LP) tank with type (1) valve connections. (Not included) Never connect your gas grill to an LP tank that exceeds this capacity. A tank of approximately 12 inches in diameter by 18-1/2 inches high is the maximum size LP gas tank to use. A propane tank with an OPD (Overfill Prevention Device) must be used. This safety feature prevents the tank from being over-filled which can cause malfunction of the LP gas tank, regulator and/or grill. The LP cylinder must be constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications for LP gas cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and designed for use with a Type 1 system only. Be sure to read and follow all LP connection instructions.

A dented or rusty LP cylinder may be hazardous and should be avoided. If in doubt, have it checked by your LP supplier. Always check for leaks after every LP cylinder change. (See Checking For Leaks) Cylinders must be stored outdoors in a well-ventilated area out of the reach of children. If your grill is stored indoors, the LP cylinder must be stored outside, in upright position and away from excessive heat.

IMPORTANT
All installation and all installation parts must conform to local codes with the National Electrical Code, ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA 70 latest edition and the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 in the U.S. and CGA-B149.1/.2 in Canada

CONNECTING TO A SIDE BURNER
You will need a ‘T’ adapter fitting (not provided) or similar connection to connect a single gas line to both a side burner and a grill. We recommend a licensed gas technician install all gas lines. See below figure for installation of a ‘T’ adapter.

LIQUID PROPANE INSTALLATION
NOTE: Ventilation is required in the enclosure on opposite sides to create cross-ventilation. Liquid propane is heavier than natural gas and vents should be located near the bottom of the enclosure.

LIGHTING THE GRILL

Before lighting the burners, inspect the gas supply piping or hose. If there is evidence of cuts, wear, or abrasion, it must be replaced prior to use. Always keep your face and body as far away from the grill as possible when lighting. Never operate the grill unattended. DO NOT OPERATE ROTISSERIE BURNER WITH WARMING RACK

INSTALLED
Your Summerset Professional Grill is equipped with reliable, high-efficiency piezo ignition valves. Below are instructions for valve ignition and manual ignition lighting.

VALVE IGNITION
PLEASE Keep your face and body away from the grill top when lighting

  1.  Open the hood before lighting; do not attempt to ignite burners while hood is closed.
  2.  Make sure gas supply is turned on.
  3.  Make sure burner control knobs are in the “OFF” position.
  4. Press in the control knob then slightly turn the knob counterclockwise while still pressing in. Hold in the above position for 5 seconds allowing the gas to reach the manifold.
  5. Turn the knob counterclockwise past the ignition to the high setting to ignite. You will hear the one time clicking sound of the spark ignition.
    After ignition, set the knob to the desired setting.

MANUAL IGNITION
CAUTION: Always wait five (5) minutes for gas to clear after any unsuccessful lighting attempt.

  1.  Follow steps 1-3
  2.  Place either a burning long-barrel butane lighter or a burning long-stem match near the manual flash tube to the right of the grill. For back burners, hold the flame against the surface of the back burner.
  3.  Hold the lighter or match flame at the top of the manual flash tube for five (5) seconds, or, next to the back burner. Then depress the appropriate control knob and while pressing turn it counterclockwise to the HI position. Remove the lighter or match when the burner lights and release the control knob.
  4.  If the burner does not light within five
  5.  seconds of turning the control knob, immediately depress the knob and turn the control knob to off. Wait five (5) minutes before repeating steps 2-4 of the MANUAL LIGHTING instructions.NOTE: Keep the hood closed during the pre-heat period. For perfect sear marks, pre-heat grill for at least 15 minutes.

BEFORE LIGHTING ROTISSERIE BURNER
TURNING ON THE ROTISSERIE BURNER. Turning the rotisserie burner on while the warming rack is installed will cause the warming rack to warp and void the warranty.
Follow valve ignition lighting instructions allowing for 5-7 seconds for gas to reach and fill rotisserie burner.

MAINTENANCE TIPS

PRE-HEATING THE GRILL
Pre-heating your grill every time you use it is extremely important. Pre-heating allows the briquettes to properly heat up, providing more even and more consistent cooking results. Pre-heat your grill by igniting all main burners. Then close the hood and allow the grill to heat for 10 to 15 minutes, the hood thermometer should reach approximately 450°. Once you’ve reached your desired pre-heat temperature, turn off the burners that you won’t be using to cook your food. Remember, surface temperature can be up to 200° higher.
SHUT OFF INSTRUCTIONS

To shut off the unit, depress each valve control knob and while pressing turn clockwise to the “OFF” position. NOTE: When using a portable propane tank: Propane tanks are equipped with a safety shutdown device that may cause low or no gas pressure/flame at the burners if operating and lighting instructions are not followed exactly.
CLEANING THE DRIP TRAY
The drip tray should be cleaned after each use. After the grill is completely cool, remove the drip tray by pulling it out until it stops, then lifting the front edge until the drip tray comes free. Clean it with hot soapy water or an oven-style cleaning product and re-install. When using an oven-style cleaning product be sure to carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Many of these cleaners are toxic and can damage the stainless-steel finish if not used properly. Also, check the tray after rain. If you’ve left the grill uncovered, you may need to remove the drip tray to drain the water from the tray.
LOW FLAMAE ADJUSTMENT
  •  To Adjust the Burner to a Low Setting:
  •  Make sure the grill is cool and the gas is off
  •  Remove the racks so you can see the flames while adjusting the flame height
  •  Turn the burner to “LOW”
  •  Pull off the control knob
  •  Use a flat head screw driver and adjust the “gold flathead screw” in the valve to the proper flame height
  •  Turn on the gas and light the burner allowing it to preheat on high for 3 minutes
  •  Turn off gas and readjust if needed

MAINTENANCE TIPS
STAINLESS STEEL NEEDS TO BE CLEANED?!? ABSOLUTELY!
Stainless steels need to be cleaned for aesthetic considerations and to preserve corrosion resistance. Stainless steel is protected from corrosion by a thin layer of chromium oxide. Oxygen from the atmosphere combines with the chromium in the stainless steel to form this passive chromium oxide film that protects from further corrosion. Any contamination of the surface by dirt, or other material, hinders this passivation process and traps corrosive agents reducing corrosion protection. Thus, routine cleaning is necessary to preserve the appearance and integrity of the surface. If you think about it, you wash your dishes and clean your cooking surfaces after each use in your indoor kitchen…Why should your outdoor cooking appliance be any different???

GRILL EXTERIOR

  •  Burn off excess food debris and marinades for 15 minutes after cooking
  •  Once the unit is cool, turn over the burner covers and burn the top side (the burner covers are reversible and are able to be mounted upside down for cleaning purposes)
  •  Use an approved stainless-steel oven cleaner to remove grease build up and wipe away
  •  Routinely have a professional barbecue cleaning company detail the barbecue for best results and longevity

STAINLESS STEEL MAINTENANCE
After each use wipe down the exterior of the grill to remove grease and splatters. Use a commercially available stainless-steel cleaner to clean and polish the exterior surfaces. Doing these things on a regular basis minimizes the amount of effort required When removing stubborn stains:

  1. Do not use metallic abrasives and always rub in the direction of the grain
  2. Some household cleaning products are not suitable for stainless steel; be sure to read the label before using on the grill
  3.  Always use the mildest cleaning solution first, scrubbing in the direction of the grain
  4.  Specks of grease may gather in the grain of the stainless steel and bake on to the surface, giving the appearance of rust
  5.  To remove these baked-on foods use a fine to medium grit non-metallic abrasive pad (Scotch Brite is good) in conjunction with a stainless-steel cleaner
  6.  Solutions used for cleaning concrete and masonry can be very corrosive and will ‘attack’ stainless steel
  7.  Be sure your Summerset products are well protected before using these products

IMPORTANT NOTE: FOR LOCATIONS NEAR COASTAL AREAS AND POOLS
#304 stainless steel materials used in the construction of your Summerset Professional Grill are highly rust resistant, however, chlorine in the air from swimming pools or the salt from sea air may cause surface rust to appear and even create some pitting if left on the product. Here are a few tips to avoid this:

  • Regularly wipe down the exterior surfaces with a damp cloth (micro fiber towels work well)
  • Allow the surfaces to dry before installing the cover Do not cover a damp grill
  •  In extreme environments apply a rust inhibitor which leaves a microscopic protective layer on the grill
  •  For seasonal storage use the product referred to above, ensure the grill is dry, then cover and secure the cover to minimize the amount of damp air getting to the surfaces

WARRANTY NOTE
The Summerset Lifetime Warranty provides protection against rust through of parts that render the product inoperative. It does not cover occasional surface rust or staining due to environmental conditions. After your first use, certain areas of the grill may discolor from the intense heat given off by the burners – this is normal and cannot be cleaned off. For light and heavy food stains there are many different stainless-steel cleaners available.

GRILL FEATURES

ROTISSERIE INSTALLATION
CAUTION: When using the back burner, keep the grill lid closed to prevent heat loss, provide proper convection and provide proper venting. This will ensure even cooking temperatures.Do not keep you grill lid open while cooking on the rotisserie as this may cause personal injury, or in some cases, in windy conditions, damage the grill. Do not use the rotisserie motor in the rain. Do not leave the motor on the grill when not in use.

  11. Light back burner per lighting instructions in this manual and close grill lid
  12. Release hood heat periodically (every
  13. (10-15 min) by opening hood

DROP-IN SEAR BURNER INSTALLATION
The preferred location to install a drop-in sear burner is on the far left of the grill. This will allow for a sear zone while maximizing the main burner grilling space. To install a drop-in sear burner:

  • Remove the grate and burner covers to access the main burner
  • Remove the cotter pin securing the main burner (if necessary)
  • Remove main burner
  • Remove cross tube in between main burners allowing for drop-in sear burner to rest flat
  • Install sear burner with the center of the orifice positioned in the center of the burner and rest the back of sear burner flat on the rear of the grill

LIGHTING DROP-IN SEAR BURNER

  1.  Open the hood before lighting; do not attempt to ignite burners while hood is closed.
  2.  Make sure gas supply is turned on.
  3.  Make sure burner control knobs are in the “OFF” position.
