Can you offer some cleaning and usage advices?

Regularly  clean  your  barbecue  between  uses and  especially  after  extended  periods  of storage.  Ensure  the  barbecue  and  its components  are  sufficiently  cool  before

cleaning. Do not leave the barbecue exposed to  outside  weather  conditions  or  stored  in damp, moist areas.

•  Never douse the barbecue with water when its surfaces are hot.

•  Never  handle  hot  parts  with  unprotected hands.

In  order  to  extend  the  life  and  maintain  the condition  of  your  barbecue,  we  strongly recommend that the unit be covered when left outside  for  any  length  of  time,  especially during  the  winter  months.  

 

Your burner has been preset for optimal flame performance.  You  will  normally  see  a  blue flame, possibly with a small yellow tip when the burner  is  alight.  If  the  flame  pattern  is significantly  yellow,  this  could  be  a  problem caused  by  grease  from  cooking  blocking  the burner or spiders or other insects in the burner venturi.  This  can  result  in  the  flow  of  the  gas and  air  mixture  being  restricted  or  blocked

which  may  result  in  a  fire  behind  the  control panel  causing  serious  damage  to  your barbecue. If this happens, the gas should be immediately  turned  off  at  the  bottle.   Burners should be inspected and cleaned on a regular  basis  in  addition  to  the  following conditions:

1)  Bringing the barbecue out of storage.

2)  One or more of the burners do not ignite.

3)  The burner flame pattern is significantly yellow.

4)  The gas ignites behind the control panel.

To  clean  a  burner,  remove  it  from  the barbecue.  The  outside  of  the  burner  can  be cleaned with a wire brush. Clean the portholes with a pipe cleaner or piece of wire. Take care not to enlarge the portholes.

Clean  the  insect  screen  on  the  end  of  the venturi  tube  with  a  bristle  brush  (i.e.  an  old toothbrush).

Clean  the  venturi  tube  with  a  pipe  cleaner  or piece  of  wire.  You  may  need  a  torch  to  see into  the  venturi  tube  to  make  sure  it  is  clear.

”Turn  the  burner  up  on  end  and  lightly  tap against a piece of wood to dislodge any debris from inside.”


Regularly  remove  excess  grease  or  fat  from the  barbecue  body  with  a  soft  plastic  or wooden scraper. It is not necessary to remove all the grease from the  body.  If you  need  to clean fully, use hot soapy water and a cloth, or nylon-bristled  brush  only.  Remove  cooking surfaces  and  burners  before  full  cleaning.  Do not immerse the gas  controls  or  manifold  in water.  Check burner operation after  carefully refitting into body.

 

Store  your  barbecue  in  a  cool  dry  place.  It must be inspected on a regular basis as damp or condensation can form which may result in damage to the barbecue. It may be necessary to dry the barbecue and the inside of the cover if  used.  Mould can  grow  under  these conditions and should be cleaned and treated if required. Any rust that is found that does not come  into  contact  with  the  food  should  be treated  with  a  rust  inhibitor  and  painted  with barbecue  paint  or  a  heat  resistant  paint.

 

Chrome plated warming racks and grills should be coated with cooking oil. Wrap the burners in aluminium foil to help prevent insects or other debris from  obstructing  the  burners.  The  gas bottle  must  be  always  be  disconnected  from the  barbecue  and  stored  in  a  well  ventilated area  at  least  1  metre  away  from  any  fixed ignition source. Do not store inside residential accommodation.  Never  store  cylinders  below ground  level  (e.g.  cellars).  Do not  let  children tamper with bottles.
