Assembly Instructions
REQUIRED TOOLS: Pliers or adjustable wrench and screwdriver.
1. Bolt legs in place by inserting short bolts through holes in corners
of main top, then through slot at top of leg. Screw nuts onto the
bolts. Attach drip pan using four of the short bolts. Insert bolts
through hole in center of leg and through corner of pan. Apply nuts
and tighten securely. Now tighten leg bolts.
2. Install manifold clamps. Insert two long bolts through manifold
clamp holes in the main top. Attach the two manifold clamps loosely
underneath top, using nuts. Place manifold pipe with valves attached
into the clamps. Align the gas valves with center of large opening in
top. The adjusting hood of the valve should face the rear of the
stove. Now tighten the manifold clamps securely. Place the valve
knobs on valve stem, making sure that the control valve is in the off
position. Knob should be in the vertical position. Manifold Pipe
thread is 3/8 male IPS.
3. To install burners: If stove is to be used with LP or bottled gas, the
air shutter (round metal disc) should be partially opened and then
locked in place by tightening the air shutter screw. The hole in open
end of burner slides over the adjusting hood of the gas valve. The
rear part of the burner is attached to hole underneath main top using
long bolts with nuts. Fasten securely.
4. The grates are installed by inserting the two extended legs on grate
into corresponding holes in main top on each side of burner
5. Always use teflon tape or thread sealer on pipe threads.
6. Remove the main top by pulling upward. Install the two manifold
clamps, using the long bolts with nuts, to the bottom front of frame.
Do not tighten clamps.
7. Insert the manifold pipe with valves attached into the clamps; open
end of manifold should extend through hole in left side of frame.
Tighten the manifold clamps. Burners are fastened to burner hangers
already installed. Then assemble in same manner as above.
After assembly is complete, connect stove to gas supply and check for
gas leaks before lighting. Make sure
proper fittings are used for connection.
(To operate gas valve, push in before
1. Turn brass control valve so knob is
in vertical position until it is tight.
(This shuts off flow of gas from the
regulator to the burner.
2. Open LP cylinder valve or gas
supply by 1/4 turn. This allows gas
into the regulator and stops it at the
brass control valve.
3. Apply gas detector fluid (or soapy
dishwashing solution) on all
connections, especially around the
regulator, valve and POL-cylinder
connection. Any bub-bles that appear indicate a gas leak. If so,
turn off gas and tighten the fitting. If a leak persists, pipe thread
compound may be needed on the threads.
1. When you are sure there are no gas leaks,
turn cylinder valve and brass control valve
to closed position.
(To operate gas valve, push in before
