Testing For Gas Leaks
Before attempting to operate this Grill :
1. Always confirm that all burner control knobs are
in the OFF position.
2. Always connect the gas supply hose first and then open the gas shutoff valve.
3. Always use a brush or spray bottle to apply a 50/50 solution of liquid soap and water to all connection
points (see Fig. 5) to test for gas leaks. Never use a match or open flame for that purpose.
4. Always look for bubbles to appear, as the appearance of bubbles will indicate a gas leak. Always turn off
the gas immediately and tighten the connection, if you find that a leak exists.
5. Always repeat this procedure until no further gas leaks are found to exist, before lighting the Grill.
6. Never attempt to light this Grill, however, if a leak cannot be stopped. Always call your gas supplier
promptly to obtain assistance.
• Always consult the Rating Label on the back of the Grill to confirm that it has already been configured to burn Natural
Gas. If it is necessary to reconfigure the Grill, however, always utilize the Natural Gas Fuel Conversion Kit available from
CFM Harris Systems Customer Service (800) 944-8982
, to prevent possible bodily injury.
