This outdoor charcoal/gas grill is not intended to be installed inor on recreational vehicles and/or boats. • 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 11" water column (W.C.) for connection to an LP gas tank. • Only use the regulator and hose assembly supplied with your gas grill. Replacement regulators and hose assemblies must be those specified by Sears. • Have your LP gas tank filled by a reputable propane gas dealer and visually inspected and re-qualified at each filling. • Never fill the gas tank beyond 80% full. Have your propane gas dealer check the release valve after every filling to ensure that it remains free of defects. • Always keep LP gas tanks in an upright position. • Donotstore(oruse)gasotineorother flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this gas grill. • An LP gas tank that is not connected for use must NOT be stored on bottom shelf or in the vicinity of this or any other gas grill. • Do not subject the LP gas tank to excessive heat. • Never store an LP gas tank indoors. If you store your gas grill in the garage or other indoor location, always disconnect the LP gas tank first and store it safely outside. • LP gas tanks must be stored outdoors in a well-ventilated area and out of the reach of children. Disconnected LP gas tanks must not be stored in a building, garage or any other enclosed area. • When your gas grill is not in use the gas must be turned off at the LP gas tank. • The regulator and hose assembly can be seen after opening the doors (if applicable), and must be inspected before each use of the grill. If there is excessive abrasion or wear or if the hose is cut, it must be replaced prior to the grill being used again. • Keep the gas regulator hose away from hot grill surfaces and dripping grease. Avoid unnecessary twisting of hose. Visually inspect hose prior to each use for cuts, cracks, excessive wear or other damage. If the hose appears damaged do not use the gas grill.

Do not allow children to play near your grill. Z WARNING If you smell gas: Shut off gas supply to the gas grill. Turn the Control Knobs to OFF position. Extinguish any open flame such as candle, cigarette, lighter, etc., that could cause gas to ignite. Open Grill Lid. Get away from the LP gas tank. Do not try to fix the problem yourself. If odor continues or you have a fire you cannot extinguish, call your firedepartment. Do not call near the LP gas tank because your telephone is an electrical device and could create aspark resulting infire and/or explosion. NOTE: The normal flow of gas through the Regulator and Hose Assembly can create a humming sound. A low volume of sound is perfectly normal and will not interfere with operation of the grill. If humming sound is loud and excessive you may need to purge air from the gas line or reset the Regulator excess gas flow device. This purging proce- dure should be done every time a new LP gas tank is connected to your grill.

This type of fire is known as a "FLASHBACK" and can cause serious damage to condition your grill for and the create user. an unsafe operating Although an obstructed Burner Tube is not the only cause of "FLASHBACK", it is the most common cause. To reduce the chance of "FLASHBACK", you must clean the Burner Tubes before assembling your grill, and at least once a month in late summer or early fall when spiders are most active. Also perform this Burner Tube cleaning )rocedure if your grill has not been used for an extended period of time. To reduce the chance of "FLASHBACK" (see CAUTION at left) clean the Burner Tubes and Burners before fully assembling your grill. Re- move the Cotter Pin from the rear underside of each Burner using a pair of long nose pliers. Carefully lift each Burner up and away from the Gas Valve Orifice, then refer to Figure 1 and perform one of these three cleaning methods: .

Electrode Check - Requires an Assistant Before placing the cooking components into your grill, ensure that the Spark Electrode Tip is properly positioned within each Gas Collector Box (a 4" wide stainless mechanism found at the front be- tween each set of Burners.) The easiest way to ensure this is to perform this Electrode Check: 1. Be sure all Control Knobs are set to "OFF" and open the Grill Lid. 2. Have an assistant stand behind to the right of the grill and look down at each Gas Collector Box. NEVER put your face inside Grill Head. . Push and turn each Control Knob to High. You should hear a "spark" sound and your assistant should see a small blue spark within each Gas Collector Box. If a spark is present, the Electrode Tips are properly positioned. 4. If no spark is seen, the Spark Gap shown in Figure 10 needs to be adjusted as follows:

5. Using anadjustable wrench, loosen the Inside Nut just until the Gas Collector Box can bemaneuvered and turned upward. If no "spark" sound is heard, call our Grill Information Center at 1-888-317-7642.

The gap between the Spark Electrode Tip and Spark receiver should be approximately 3/16". If the gap is wider than 3/16" use a pair of long nose pliers and gently squeeze the Gas Collector Box until the gap is correct. Return the Gas Collector Box to its original horizon- tal position, secure the Inside Nut and try the Electrode Check again. Figure 10 - Side View GAS COLLECTOR BOX INSIDE NUT /

Question: Can Iconvert my Kenmore gas grill from one fuel type to another? Answer: Your Kenmore gas grill is manufactured to exact specifications and is approved by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) for LP gas use only. For your own safety, conversion kits are not available and any attempt to convert your grill from LP gas to Natural Gas will void your product warranty. Question: Are the serial and model numbers of my grill listed somewhere for future reference? Answer: Yes, this valuable information islisted on a silver label found on the right side of your Grill Head under the Side Shelf. Question: Why doesn't the hose and regulator assem- bly supplied with my new Kenmore grill fit the older LP gas tank rve used for years? Answer: The U.S. Government regulates gas appli- ances and LP gas tanks. Whenever new regulations are passed the LP gas tank fittings are altered. Ifyour current tank does not fit the hose and regulator sup- plied with your new grill, the tank is outdated and must be replaced. Question: What can cause grill parts to rust and what affect does it have on the grill materials. Answer: Rusting is a natural oxidation process and may appear on Cast-Iron Burners, Steel Cooking Grids, Steel Charcoal Tray and steel cart parts. Because your grill is manufactured with heavy gauge steel, rust will not affect the short term performance of your grill or affect the taste of your foods. To protect against the natural rusting process, your Cooking Grids and Charcoal Tray have a porcelain finish. However, dropping, scraping orscratching these items will damage the porcelain finish and allow rusting. To minimize rusting we recommend you "season" the Cooking Grids regularly before and after each use. Consistent seasoning will help cast-iron resist rusting and will create a non-stick cooking surface. Question: How do Iseason Cooking Grids and cast iron? Answer: Before and after each cookout, apply athin layer of cooking oil, spray or vegetable shortening to each Cooking Grid and/or optional cast-iron accessory. Be sure to coat the entire surface including edges and any areas with chipped porcelain. Insert the Cooking Grids into your grill and warm for 2 to 3 minutes. Question: Sometimes my grill does not light when I turn the Control Knob. Why? Answer: Refer to the Lighting Instructions inthis Owner's Manual. Question: Where can Ibuy replacement parts? Answer: For the repair or replacement parts you need call 6 am - 11 pm CST, 7 days a week 1-800-4-MY- HOME®(1-800-469-4663). Use only Sears authorized parts. The use of any part that is not Sears authorized can be dangerous and will also void your product warranty. Question: Sometimes Ihear ahumming sound coming from my regulator. What causes this? Answer: The humming noise is actually the gas flowing through the regulator. A LOW volume of noise is perfectly normal andwill not interfere with the opera- tions of the grill. If humming noise is loud and exces- sive you may need to purge air from the gas line or reset the regulator excess gas flow device. Note: This purging procedure should be done every time anew LP gas tank is connected to your grill. For help with this procedure refer to page 16, step 4, or call the Grill Information Center: 8am - 8pm CST, Monday through Friday at 1-888-317-7642 Indirect Cooking The indirect cooking method can also be used with the supplied Cooking Grids. To cook indirectly, the food should be placed on the left or right side of your grill with the Burner lit on the opposite side. Or place your food onthe Secondary Cooking Rack mounted inside your grill bowl and light the 2outer grill Burners. Either way, indirect cooking must be done with the Lid down. Seasoning Cooking Grids Before and after each cookout, apply a thin layer of cooking oil, spray or vegetable shortening to each Cooking Grid. Be sure to coat the entire surface includ- ing edges and any areas with chipped porcelain. Insert the Cooking Grids into your warm grill for 2 to 3 minutes. Z WARNING Your grill will get very hot. Always wear a flame retardant BBQ Mitt when cooking on your grill. Never lean over cooking areas while using grill. Do not touch cooking surfaces, Lid, grill housing or other parts while grill is in operation, or until the grill has cooled down after use. Failure to comply with these instructions may result in serious bodily injury. Bum-Off Flare-Ups The fats and juices dripping from grilled food can cause flare-ups. Since flare-ups impart afavorably, disti nctive taste and color to food cooked over an open flame, they should be accepted up to a point. Nevertheless, uncontrolled flaring can result in a ruined meal. Preheating To preheat, light your grill on HIGH, lower the Lid and followthistimetable: • For high temperature cooking, preheat grill 3 to 5 minutes. • For low temperature cooking, preheat grill 3 minutes. • To slow cook, preheating is not necessary. Cooking Temperatures High setting: Only use this setting for fast warm-up, searing steaks or chops and for burning food residue off the grill after cooking is complete. Never use the HIGHsetting for extended cooki rig. Medium to Low Settings: Most recipes specify medium to low settings, includingall smoking, rotis- serie cooking and for cooking lean cuts such as fish. NOTE: Temperature settings will vary with the tem- perature and the amount of wind outside your home. Direct Cooking The direct cooking method can be used with the supplied Cooking Grids and food placed directly over the lit grill Burners. Direct Cooking requires the Grill Lid to be open. This method is ideal for many recipes including deep frying, searing and whenever you want meat, poultry orfish tohave anopen-flame barbecued taste. Before cooking on your gas grill for the first time, you will want to "burn ofF' the grill to eliminate any odor or foreign matter. Just ignite the burners, lower the Lid, and operate grill on the HIGH setting for three to five minutes. CAUTION: Operating your grill on the HIGH setting for longer than five minutes may damage certain parts of your grill. Do not leave your grill unattended. / kWARNING Do not line the bottom of the grill housing with aluminum foil, sand or any substance that will restrict the flow of grease into the Grease Draining Tray and Receptacle. Failure to comply with these instructions could result in a fire or explosion which could cause serious bodily injury, death, or property damage. FOR YOUR SAFETY Before the first use and at the beginning of each season: 1. Read all safety, lighting and operating instructions. 2. Check gas valve orifices, burner tubes and burner ports for any obstructions. 3. Perform gas leak check. Before each use of your grill: 1. Pull outthe Grease Tray and remove all grease and food debris to prevent grease fire hazard. 2. Be sure the grill is positioned outdoors at least 24 inches from the back and side of any combus- tible surface. 23
