Excess yellow tipping means the combustion is not right, if that is observed, turn the Barbecue burners off, and refer to troubleshooting at the end of this manual.
Do not use more than 2 burners on ‘High’ with the hood closed.

If the burner does not light

Keep the control knob pushed, and return the knob in the clockwise direction to the ‘Off’ position. Wait 5 minutes, and repeat the lighting procedure steps 1 – 4 above again. If after a few attempts you still can not light the burners, contact your retailer before proceeding.

Manual Lighting

Press and turn the right hand control knob anti-clockwise to the ‘High’ position, then light the right hand burner immediately through a hole provided in the middle of the right hand barbecue side panel.

Check for proper burner operation

Following operating instructions light each burner and check for a clear blue flame with just a tip of yellow. Excess yellow tipping can be adjusted using the screw on the side of the burner. If you are unable to achieve correct operation, consult your dealer.

Preparing the Plate and Grill

Your barbecue has heavy duty enamelled Cast Iron plate and grill. Enamel is a hard, non-rusting surface which will ensure the long life of your cooking surface.
The plate and grill are ready to use, but it is recommended to wash them with warm soapy water and a soft cloth, and rinse before use.
To ensure the longevity of the enamel surface on the Cast Iron plate and grill it is strongly advised to avoid impact with other metal parts and sharp utensils.

To turn off a burner
Simply turn the knob (without pushing) clockwise to the ‘Off’ position.

After Use

It is a good idea to leave the barbecue on for about 10 minutes after you have finished cooking. This helps to burn away any excess food residues and oil, and makes cleaning easier.

  1. Be sure to turn off all control knobs and the gas supply.
  2. Allow the barbecue to cool.
  3. Clean the drip tray and cooking surfaces. Clean any food spills from the side burner, if one is installed.
  4. Lower the hood and side burner lid.

The gas cylinder supply valve must be turned off when the appliance is not in use.

Direct Cooking Method

Commonly used for traditional barbecuing. Place food over the lit grill section. Some flaring may occur, so care must be taken while cooking. Check inside the roasting hood regularly. The direct cooking method is recommended for steaks, chops, sausages, and hamburgers.

Indirect Cooking

Indirect cooking involves little or no heat directly underneath the food. Instead, the food is placed on the grill, the burners below the food are turned off or Low, and burners on either side are used. The hood is closed to trap heat and moisture. With this method, heat circulates around the food, cooking by convection. By trapping the vapour inside your “outdoor oven”, the cooking vapour will fall back on the food on all sides, not just from underneath. The food cooks more evenly, and stays moist in the process. Indirect cooking is similar to using a conventional oven and is recommended for rotisserie cooking, roasts, poultry, casseroles, vegetables and whole fish. When cooking a roast, it is a good idea to use a roast holder and baking dish. Always use a baking dish with a depth greater than 35mm. Shallower trays may fill quickly and overflow, which may cause a fat fire.

Controlling the Burners

The control knob can now be turned to the desired heat setting, Low, High or anywhere in between. The control knob does not need to be pushed in while selecting the heat setting.

Most importantly, this is an outdoor appliance. Ensure your barbecue is positioned safely away from anything that can catch fire.

Outdoors Use Only

Under no circumstances is this barbecue to be used indoors. This includes garages or any other enclosed area.
Clearance from Combustibles: Ensure your barbecue remains at a distance of at least 45 cm (18”) from any combustible material such as wood, gyprock, paper and plants. Do not store combustible materials, gasoline or flammable liquids or vapours within 45 cm (18”) of the barbecue.

Adequate Ventilation

Ensure there is adequate ventilation for both the barbecue and cylinder. This is required not only for proper combustion, but also to prevent gas build up.
20mm ventilation and air-intake gap is to be left at rear of the barbecue in fixed installations.

Firm Level Surface

Use your barbecue only on a firm level surface. This barbecue is not designed for recreational vehicles, and shall not be installed on a boat or any marine craft.
Protection From Weather: Keep the barbecue protected from adverse weather, including rain and high winds.
Polyvinyl covers are available that have been specially designed for this range of barbecues. Allow clear access to the entire gas supply hose and regulator.
Maintenance Access: When your barbecue is installed, you should be able to access the gas supply line including the gas piping or hose, gas regulator, gas cylinder and any shut off valves.
Partial Enclosures: Many backyards have areas that are partially closed off, such as balconies and pergolas. In some cases, it is hard to decide whether these partially enclosed areas should be classified as indoor areas. This manual provides clear definition of such areas in page 10 for your reference.
Connect the Regulator to the gas Cylinder


Verify ‘Gas Type’ label & data plate attached to side of barbecue is correct for the gas you are about to connect to.
The hose and regulator is connected to the barbecue and leak tested at factory. Do not disassemble unnecessarily.

  1. Make sure burner valves are in the ‘Off’ position.
  2. Screw regulator side to the cylinder, and hand-tighten.

See more details on page 4.

NOTE: Do not modify this appliance. Any deviation from the factory settings could result in a safety hazard.

  • If moving the barbecue from one place to another, never drag the cylinder behind. Disconnect the cylinder first, move, and re-connect once reached the new location.
  • For storage and cylinder exchange, disconnect hose at the cylinder only, do not disconnect hose from the appliance.
  • If you have purchased a trolley with a Side-Burner, please refer to Trolley instruction book for correct connection of the Side-Burner to the gas supply.


Partial Enclosures (Australia Only)

This appliance shall only be used in an above ground, open air situation with natural ventilation, without stagnant areas, where gas leakage and products of combustion are rapidly dispersed by wind and natural convection. Any enclosure in which the appliance is used shall comply with one of the following:

Within a partial enclosure that includes an overhead cover and no more than two walls.

Within a partial enclosure that includes an overhead cover and more than two walls, the following shall apply:

  • At least 25% of the total wall area is completely open; and
  • at least 30% of the remaining wall area is open and unrestricted.

In the case of balconies, at least 20% of the total of the side, back and front wall areas shall be and remain open and unrestricted.

Any enclosure with walls on all sides, but at least one permanent opening at ground level, and no overhead cover.

Before proceeding, you need to establish the gas type which your barbecue will run on, and the style of installation you need.

Natural Gas or LPG/Propane.

Before beginning installation or assembly, check that the gas type which the barbecue is designed for is correct for the gas available to you. In most countries the choices are natural gas or LPG/propane. You will find the gas type label on the side of your barbecue. If your barbecue uses the incorrect gas type, or if you are unsure, consult your dealer before going any further. Using the wrong type of gas for a barbecue is extremely dangerous.

Natural Gas Conversion

Most newly purchased barbecues are made for LPG/ propane. A natural gas conversion kit is available to allow your barbecue to run on Natural Gas. This kit includes all hoses required for installation.


Cleaning Vitreous Enamel Surfaces and Barbecue Control Panel

Although porcelain enamel will keep its lustrous finish even under adverse conditions, it still needs regular cleaning. After the appliance has been used, wash down the surfaces with hot soapy water. Caustic cleaners should be avoided. For barbecues near the ocean or salt-water environment, more frequent cleaning and servicing should be conducted. Wash regularly, rinse and then dry before covering. (In a salt water or marine environment, more rapid deterioration can be expected which is not covered by warranty).

The cleaning and care instructions are essential for the proper functioning and operation of your appliance over time. Failure to adhere to these care instructions may affect your ability to make a claim under the manufacturer’s warranty.

Cleaning Plates and Grills

Many food acids, marinades, juices and sauces contain highly acidic elements that will slowly attack the surface of the plates and grills if not removed after cooking.

  • After use, remove all solid material from the cooking surfaces using a brass bristle brush or plastic scourer. Brushes specifically designed for this purpose can be purchased from your BeefEater retailer. Wipe off remaining residue with a paper towel.
  • Gently wash the surface of the grills with a soft sponge and a solution of hot water and a mild dishwashing liquid. Do not use highly caustic, harsh or abrasive chemical cleaners to clean the cooking grills. Always check the manufacturer’s recommendations for the cleaner prior to use.
  • Coat the grills with a layer of cooking oil. This will help protect the surfaces between uses.
  • For porcelain enamel coated cooking surfaces, do not use any metal tools to clean the surface. Use only a brass bristle wire brush to remove hard deposits.

Do not clean the cooking surfaces in a dishwashing machine.
For hard deposits and heavy grease, do not use steel wool or metal scrapers. Use concentrated detergent or domestic cleaning powders.

Cleaning The Drip Tray

Never remove the grease tray while the barbecue is hot.
Always remove and clean the grease tray after the unit has cooled down.
Replace aluminium foil on main drip tray (if used) and clean both waste trays at regular intervals to prevent grease buildup, which could result in a grease fire and void the barbecue warranty.

Cleaning The Burners

  • Check main opening, throat and venturi to each burner regularly for insect nests (eg. wasp, ants or spiders). Nests are dangerous and must be cleaned out thoroughly.
  • Remove burners periodically and scrub clean with soapy water and a wire brush making sure that the ports are free of obstructions.

Replace burners in the correct position and dry by lighting each one to avoid subsequent corrosion.

Storing Your Barbecue

When storing barbecue for extended periods, be certain all controls and cylinder valves are turned off. If storing the barbecue indoors remove gas cylinder and store the cylinder in a ventilated area outdoors.
Gas cylinders must be stored outdoors, out of reach of children and must not be stored in a building, garage or any other enclosed area.
The barbecue should be covered when not in use. eg. a polyester or vinyl barbecue cover. Frequently check and tighten all nuts and bolts on the barbecue and trolley. The gas cylinder supply valve must be turned off when the appliance is not in use.


Note: For storage and cylinder exchange, disconnect hose at the cylinder only, do not disconnect hose from appliance.

Please note that environmental conditions need to be taken into account with regards to the maintenance required on your product. In particular units installed in humid climates or seaside locations will be more susceptible to surface corrosion/discolouration over time. In these conditions Electrolux strongly recommends cleaning and drying your barbecue after every use and covering it when not in use to minimise exposure to the elements.


This appliance should be checked and serviced by an authorised service person every 2 years to ensure the appliance remains in a safe operating condition. (These services are not covered by warranty). Replacement parts are available from your authorised BeefEater Dealer.
