The Frigidaire Grill can be installed as a built-in Grill. If installed as a built-in Grill, the Grill surround must be constructed of Non-combustible material.
Planning and Design
Start by identifying the number and size of components you want to include: Grill, side burner, access doors for storage, or other items you may wish to furnish such as refrigerator, sink, and warming drawer. Countertops must be constructed with non-combustible, outdoor-safe materials. Consider outdoor lighting to illuminate after-dark Grilling. For assistance in designing and building your outdoor cooking center, contact a landscape architect or general contractor. Review the drawings on the following pages to determine the exact dimensions and items needed for a built-in Grill. Keep in mind that the gas line hook-up is on the right-hand side for the main Grill head. The structure, (Grill and support items must be kept level throughout the installation to ensure proper operation.
Take into account convenience and visual impact as well as traffic flow, wind exposure, and the site’s structural suitability. The Grill should never be placed in an enclosed area without an approved ventilation system, or beneath a combustible overhang. Because the Grill exhausts to the rear, it should never be located in front of a window or less than 12″ from hard-to-clean surfaces. We recommend keeping your gas supply lines as short as possible for the best performance. To ensure a perfect fit, we strongly recommend that you have all components on hand prior to final construction.
Clearance to Non-Combustible Construction
For your safety a minimum of 3″ clearance from the back of the Grill to non-combustible construction is required. You should allow at least 6″ side clearance to non-combustible construction. The Frigidaire Grill can be placed directly adjacent to non-combustible construction below the cooking surface.
Outboard Ignitor Plate Installation
The electronic ignitor requires a standard size electrical box, (available at a local hardware store), with a minimum depth of 2.5″ to be mounted in the structure. It should be placed on the left front or left side of the built-in island, with the center of the ignitor button no more than 3″-5″ from the Grill. The ignitor plate, sold separately, fits over the standard electrical box once mounted in the structure. (See drawing on the following page). The ground wire for the ignitor needs to be grounded to a metal structure in order for the ignitor to work.
For natural gas Grills, consult your local gas utility company for hook-up requirements. All gas connections should be made by a plumber or a gas supply company. For natural gas installation, the supply line must be at least 1/2″ in diameter. The rotisserie requires a 110/120 volt electric supply and GFI receptacle. (6.5 amp rain.) If your plan includes a sink, arrange for your plumber to run a water line to the site.
- The gas connection cut out in floor support needs to be 4″ wide x 6″ long, set 6″ back from the front edge.
- Ignitor cutout is equal to a standard electrical outlet with a minimum depth of 2 %”.
- If using a backsplash apron or rear wall, locate electrical service on the left-hand side for the rotisserie motor connection.
- A minimum clearance of 12″ from the back must be maintained between the grill and any combustible construction such as wood siding of a residence, 3″ minimum for non-combustible construction.
Care and Maintenance
The drip tray located below the grill, inside the cart, should be cleaned periodically to prevent a heavy buildup of debris.
Note: Allow the drip tray to cool before attempting to clean.
The cooking grates can be cleaned immediately after cooking is completed and after turning off the flame. Wear a barbecue mitt and scrub the cooking grates with a damp cloth. If the grill is allowed to cool down, cleaning the grates will be easier if removed from the grill and cleaned with mild detergent.
The grill is made from non-rusting stainless steel. After initial usage, areas of the grill may discolor from the intense heat given off by the burners is normal. Purchase a mild stainless steel cleaner and rub it in the direction of the grain of the metal. Specks of grease can gather on the surface of the stainless steel and bake onto the surface and giving a worn appearance. For removal use a non-abrasive oven cleaner in conjunction with a stainless cleaner.
Note: Always scrub in the direction of the grain.
Rear Infrared Burner
Please light and burn the rear infrared burner at least once a month to ensure there is not a build-up of debris or grease on the burner. This will ensure the ceramic burner will continue to operate as it should.
Using the Rotisserie & Side Burner
The grill rotisserie system is designed to cook items from the back using infrared heat. The rotisserie burner is an infrared type that provides intense searing radiant heat. Preferred by chefs over other cooking methods, this intense heat is magnificent for searing in the natural juices and nutrients found in quality cuts of meats. Once lit, the rotisserie burner will reach cooking temperatures in I minute. The orange/red glow will even out in about 5 minutes.
The rotisserie motor is equipped with metal gears and is capable of turning up to 20 lbs. of food. The motor is mounted on a bracket on the left side of the grill by sliding the motor over the bracket with the cord facing the back of the grill. Make sure the motor is straight prior to operating.
Warning: Electrical Grounding Instructions
This appliance (rotisserie motor) is equipped with a three-prong (grounding) plug for your protection against shock hazards and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug.
Attachinig the Rotisserie
The motor is mounted on a bracket on the left side of the grill by sliding the motor over the bracket with the cord facing the back of the grill. With the rotisserie motor in place and plugged into an electrical outlet it is now ready to operate. After installing the rod handle, slide one of the meat forks onto the rod. (prongs facing away from the handle) Push the rod through the center of the food, then slide the second meat fork onto the rod. (prongs toward the food).
Center the food to be cooked on the rod, then push the meat forks firmly together. Tighten the wing nuts. It may also be necessary to wrap food with butcher’s string, (never use nylon or plastic string) to secure loose portions. Once the food is secure, insert the pointed end of the rotis rod into the motor assembly and rest the other end on the support on the right-hand side of the Grill. (If needed remove the cooking grates for more room.). Turn the power switch to the “On” position to start the rotisserie motor.
Note: Remove the rotisserie when not in use. Remove the warming shelf when using rotisserie

Spider and Insect Warning
Spiders and insects can nest in the burners of this or any other Grill and cause the gas to flow from the front of the burner.
