You may need a second person to help you to avoid damaging the grill or your barbecue island.
Before installing a grill in any island or cut out, make sure that the opening is not bigger than the outside frame of the grill unit. The grill should rest on the lip of the frame.
Pay careful attention to the location of the gas line. It should be routed away from sources of heat and should make as few bends as possible. Check to see if the gas line connection will be accessible when the grill is installed.
• If the gas line connection is not easily accessible when the grill is installed, support the grill above counter level and attach the gas line to the grill. When the gas connection is made, slide the grill into the cut out.
• If the gas line connection is accessible when the grill is installed, slide the grill into the cut out and then attach the gas line. Be very careful not to kink the gas line when lowering the grill into the cut out. Keep your fingers away from where the grill will be supported on counter. Your fingers could become trapped and serious injury could occur.
Check to make sure the grill is level and is supported around the entire outside edge. If the grill is not level or is unstable, use non-combustible shims under the outside lip to stabilize it.Perform the leak test procedure.
