Proper maintenance is required to reduce potential flare-ups and extend the life of your grill.
PERMASTEEL also highly recommends using a grill cover after each use to further protect your grill.

  • IMPORTANT: Do not use oven cleaner or other abrasive cleansers. Do not use mineral spirits or cleaners that contain citrus products.
  • IMPORTANT: Do not use a wire brush on the stainless steel or porcelain-enamel surfaces of this grill, as this will cause scratches.
  • IMPORTANT: When cleaning stainless steel surfaces, rub in the direction of the grain to preserve the look of your stainless steel.
  • IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE ACID DETERGENT AND/OR ANTIRUST AGENTS TO CLEAN THE CONTROL PANEL. SUCH STRONG CLEANSERS MAY REMOVE THE PRINTED INSTRUCTIONS.

1. All cleaning and maintenance should be performed while the grill is cool and with the fuel supply disconnected.
2. During maintenance:

  • Care must be taken not to obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air in your grill.
  • After maintenance, ensure that the ventilation openings of the cylinder enclosure are free and clear of debris.
  • DO NOT clean any grill part in a self-cleaning oven. The extreme heat will damage the finish.
  • Abrasive cleaners will damage this product. Never use oven cleaner to clean any part of your grill.

1. Turn the grill to “HIGH” and leave on for 10-15 minutes with the lid closed. Use hot soapy water and a brush to clean the cooking grates, and then rinse with clean water and wipe dry.
IMPORTANT: For stainless steel cooking grates, use a brass wire brush. DO NOT use scrapers or brushes of other metals.
IMPORTANT: For porcelain-coated cooking grates, use a non-metallic scrub brush.

2. Turn LP gas tank valve to the “OFF” position, and then turn all burner control valves to the “OFF” position. (This sequence prevents residual gas from being left in the system under pressure.)

3. While the lid is still warm, wipe the inside surface clean using a wet, soapy, soft rag to remove grease. Rinse with clean with water.

4. When the cooking grates have cooled completely, remove them to brush off the flame tamers. Rinse clean with water.
IMPORTANT: For stainless steel flame tamers, use a brass wire brush. DO NOT use scrapers or brushes of other metals.
IMPORTANT: For porcelain-coated flame tamers, use a non-metallic scrub brush.

5. Remove the grease cup from the front inside of the cart. Use hot, soapy water and a non-metallic scrub brush or soft rag to wipe it down. Rinse clean with water.

6. Return the grease cup, flame tamers and cooking grates to the grill and, when dry, cover with a grill cover.

 

1. Grill Hood & Cabinet Doors: Clean with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth after each use.

2. Stainless Steel: Clean with specialized stainless steel cleaning products weekly or sooner if needed.
NOTE: There are many different stainless steel cleaners available. Always use the mildest cleaning procedure first, scrubbing in the direction of the grain.

3. Steel: Clean with mild soap and water annually or sooner if needed.

4. Cast Aluminum: Clean with mild soap and water annually or sooner if needed.

5. Plastic: Clean with mild soap and water annually or sooner if needed.

1. Turn off the gas at the LP gas cylinder / main NG valve.

2. Remove the cooking grates and flame tamers.

3. Remove the burners by removing the screws securing the burners to the grill bottom. (See fig, 9)

4. Lift the burner up and away from the gas valve orifice. (See Fig. 9)

5. Clean the inlet (venturi) of the burner with a venturi / bottle brush or compressed air. Inspect the burners for spiders, insects and small animals nests. A clogged tube can lead to a fire underneath the grill.

6. Remove all food residue and dirt on burner surface.

7. Clean any clogged ports with a stiff wire (such as an opened paper clip).

8. Inspect each burner for any damage (cracks or holes). If any damage is found, replace it with new burner. Call Customer Service 888-287-0735 to purchase replacement parts.

9. Reinstall the burners, checking to ensure that the gas valve orifice is correctly positioned inside each burner inlet (venturi)

IMPORTANT: Inspect all venturi tubes/burners at least once per year or sooner if:

  • You smell gas.
  • You experience delayed burner ignition.
  • The appliance does not reach proper temperature.
  • The burner makes a “popping” noise.
  • The appliance heats unevenly.
  • The appliance has been stored for a period of more than one month.

NOTE: A good flame should be blue with some yellow tips coming from the burner holes. Yellow tips on flames up to .” in height are acceptable as long as no carbon or soot deposits appear.

1. Clean the cooking grates before and after each use with a stiff brush. For stainless steel cooking grates, use a brass wire brush. DO NOT use scrapers or brushes of other metals. For porcelain coated cooking grates, use a non-metallic scrub brush.

2. It is not necessary to fully clean the cooking grates after each use, but a mild soap and water solution can be used as necessary. Always rinse cooking grates thoroughly after cleaning.

3. Do not use commercial grade oven cleaners to clean the cooking grates.

1. Remove the cooking grates and clean any built-up residue from the flame tamers. For stainless steel flame tamers, use a brass wire brush. DO NOT use scrapers or brushes of other metals. For porcelain- coated flame tamers, use a non-metallic scrub brush.

2. It is not necessary to fully clean the flame tamers after each use, but a mild soap and water solution can be used as necessary. Always rinse flame tamers thoroughly after cleaning.

3. Do not use commercial grade oven cleaners to clean the flame tamers.

1. The grease cup/grease tray is located below the firebox of the appliance and will catch any grease drippings/food residue that is not burnt off during cooking.

2. Wait until the grease/residue in the cup/grease tray is cooled and empty it into the garbage.

3. The grease cup/grease tray should be emptied regularly to prevent possible flare-ups or spillage.
