INITIAL FIRING INSTRUCTIONS

Please read this manual carefully and follow it step by step before starting your Z Grills for the first time and each time the grill runs out of pellets.

1.Remove the Porcelain Grills. Grease Drain Pan and Heat Baffle from the interior of the grill.

2.Open the Pellet Hopper Lid. make sure there are no foreign objects in the Auger and Hopper.

3. With the Switch is in the OFF(O) position. plug the power cord into 110 Volt AC grounded outlet.

4. Turn on your Z Grills and turn the Temperature Dial to SMOKE position. Please check the following things: (WARNING: Please do not touch it!) Confirm the Auger is turning.

Hold your fingers above the Firepot to confirm the fan is blowing air through the Firepot.

Look to see the Hot Rod should turn a light red slowly (It takes approximately 1-2 minutes.) 5. Turn the Temperature Dial to SHUT DOWN CYCLE. (Please note the draft fan will stay on for 10 minutes in this mode.) 6. Fill the Pellet Hopper with Pellets. Then turn the Temperature Dial to HIGH. It takes some time for the Pellets traveled through the tube. when the Pellets start to drop. turn the Temperature Dial to SHUT DOWN CYCLE.

7. Turn the Temperature Dial to SMOKE. Allow the Pellets come to full flame. Once flames are coming out of the Firepot. turn the Temperature Dial to SHUT DOWN CYCLE and let the grill cool down. [We suggest that you should warp Grease Drain Pan up with heavy-duty aluminum foil before using because it is easy to clean.] 8. Place components back in place. Open the lid and turn the Temperature Dial to SMOKE. A few minutes later. when you see whitish-gray smoke coming out of the grill then close the lid and turn the Temperature Dial to any cooking setting desired.

9. Set Temperature Dial to HIGH and let grill run for 45 minutes at this setting to rid it of any foreign matter. This step must be done before cooking any food.

10. Please preheat the grill for 10 minutes before placing food. This make your grill to heat up and quickly return to your desired temperature once your food is placed.

Otherwise it will take a longer period of time to bring both the grill and the food to your desired cooking temperature.

SUBSEQUENT START-UP

Please take attention: If the grill fails to light or the fire in the Firepot goes out while cooking. it is vital to follow these steps when sufficient pellets are still in the Pellet Hopper. Failure to follow the steps may cause a hazardous “over-firing” of your grill due to an excess of unburned pellets in the Firepot.

1.Turn OFF the appliance and unplug the Power Cord. After the grill cool down. remove all food. the Porcelain Grills. Grease Drain Pan and the Heat Baffle.

2.Remove all unburned pellets and ash from inside and around the Firepot. (See instruction for proper handling and disposal of ash) 3.Plug the Power Cord and turn on the grill. Pellets should fall into the Firepot and the Hot Rod should begin to heat (it will start to turn red).

4.If this step is successful. you will see flames come out of the Firepot. Then turn off the grill and let it cool down. Then place components back in place. Open the lid and turn the Temperature Dial to SMOKE. A few minutes later. when you see whitish-gray smoke coming out of the grill then close the lid and turn the Temperature Dial to any cooking setting desired.

5.If this step is not successful. see TROUBLESHOOTING or contact Z GRILLS Techni cal Support to help diagnose the problem before proceeding to the MANUAL LIGHT ING INSTRCUTIONS below:

1.Manual Lighting Instructions: The grill can still be used to cook and smoke by using the MANUAL LIGHTING PROCE DURE below if the Hot Rod only is not operating: 1.Turn OFF the appliance and unplug the Power Cord. After the grill cool down. discon nect the Hot Rod (Purple/White wire pair as shown in the WIRING DIAGRAM) from beneath the Pellet Hopper. Also. you need to remove the Hopper Bottom Panel to access the wiring. Once the Hot Rod is disconnected. replace the Hopper Bottom Panel and plug the Power Cord into a grounded outlet.

2.Fill the Pellet Hopper with pellets. (Note: Only Dia 6MM Pellets can be used.) 3.Remove the Porcelain Grills. Grease Drain Pan and Heat Baffle. then pour 1/2 cup of pellets into the Firepot.

4.Squirt 2 tablespoons of Alcohol Gel fire lighter into the Firepot on top of the Pellets.

DANGER: Never use gasoline. kerosene. lighter fluid or similar liquids to light a fire in this grill.

5.Carefully light the Alcohol Gel with a fireplace match or a long-reach butane lighter.

DANGER: Never squirt Alcohol Gel into a burning fire or a hot Firepot. The Alcohol Gel bottle could explode and cause a fire. serious injury or death.

6.Let the Alcohol Gel and Pellets burn for approximately 4 minutes.

7.After assuring the Pellets have ignited. Now there is a fire in the Firepot so SUBSE QUENT START-UP you should be careful not to burn yourself when you place compo nents back in place.

8. Turn on the grill and turn the Temperature Dial to any setting desired. With the lid closed. preheat the grill for 10 minutes before placing food.

2.Shutdown Cycle Auger turns off Fan continues to run for 5 minutes After finished cooking. turn the Temperature Dial to Shutdown Cycle position. the function of this setting to leave the Draft Induction Fan running for 10 minutes to burn redundant pellets in the fire pot. After the fan runs for 10 minutes the fan will stop running and the controller will power off.

CAUTION: The main power switch will shut the power off to the controller and the Temperature Dial Knob switch will cut off power to the grill components only. When servicing the controller or any parts. ensure that the power supply is disconnected to avoid a shock hazard.

Error codes: LEr (Low Temperature Alarm) Grill temp was below 150F for more than 20 minutes.

HEr(High Temperature Alarm) Grill temp reached 550F.

Er1 Check to ensure the temperature probe is properly connected.

Er2 Shut off the grill. wait three seconds and restart. This will reboot the controller and fix the problem. If that doesn’t work they should call customer service

ALWAYS TURN THE UNIT TO SHUTDOWN ON THE CONTROL PANEL WHTN GRILLING IS COMPLETED. Do not turn the switch to the Off position until the unit has completely shut down. Failure to follow this procedure may result in a fire.

OPERATING TIPS

1. Just like other barbecues. the actual temperature of this grill or the cooking times will be affected by external temperature. humidity. wind conditions. quality of pellets and so on.

2. It is better to shelter your grill from the wind. this will aid in temperature output. heat retention and heat recovery time when opening the lid.

3. Do not open the lid frequently. it will increase your cooking time. But you can open the lid when you want the grill to cool down quickly.

4. Please preheat the grill for 10 minutes before placing food. This make your grill to heat up and quickly return to your desired temperature once your food is placed.

Otherwise it will take a longer period of time to bring both the grill and the food to your desired cooking temperature.

5. Never move your grill while running.

6. Never put water into the Pellet Hopper or Firepot.

7. Never add pellets to Firepot directly. It is dangerous. If you run out of pellets and lose your fire while cooking. let the grill cool down and start again with the INITIAL FIRING INSTRUCTIONS.

8. We recommend you cover your Grease Drain Pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil and change it frequently. This is the simplest way to maintain your Grease Drain Pan. Fail ure to clean the Grease Drain Pan. V-shaped Grease Drain and Grease Drain Tube may caused grease fires. If this situation happens. turn the Switch OFF(O) to reduce the amount of oxygen in the Chamber and keep the lid open until the fire is completely out. AT THE SAME TIME. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BURN YOURSELF. When the grill is completely cool. clean any grease accumulation from the V-shaped Grease Drain and the Grease Drain Pan. Replace the foil on the Grease Drain Pan. Then restart the grill and resume cooking.

MAINTENANCE & CLEANING

Your Z Grills also needs your maintenance.

Make sure your grill is OFF and cold completely before performing any maintenance and cleaning.

Grease: With long-term use. it caused the accumulation of grease on the Flue Lining. the Grease Drain Tube. the V-shaped Grease Drain and the Grease Drain Pan. Always be sure these grease catch area is clean and free of debris. You should check and clean these area periodically to reduce the risk of fire.

Our design of the Grease Basket allows you to easily replace disposable paper cups without cleaning.

It is easier to clean of accumulated grease when the grill is still warm -- not hot. Be Careful Not To Burn Yourself. Gloves are recommended.

If too much grease is allowed to build up in the V-shaped Grease Drain or is allowed to plug the Grease Drain Tube. a grease fire could result. So it is necessary to clean these area regularly. You can scarp the grease accumulation from inside the V-shaped Grease Drain and Grease Drain Tube by using a stiff. nonmetallic tool. Much of the loosened grease can be push down through the Grease Drain Tube and fall into the Grease Basket. Wipe up remaining grease residue with paper towels or disposable rags.

Flue Pipe(Smoke Stack) Remove the Chimney Cap Assembly. clean it with warm soap water. Scrape the creo sote and grease accumulation from inside of the vertical and horizontal sections of the Flue Pipe using a stiff. nonmetallic tool such as a wooden paint stir stick. Once the creo sote and grease residue has been loosened from the Flue Pipe Lining. much of it can be cleaned with paper towels or disposable rags. Do not spray water or other liquid cleaners onto the inside of the grill.

Outside surfaces Use a warm soap water to wipe the grease. Do not use oven cleaner. abrasive cleans ers or abrasive cleaning pads on the outside grill surfaces.

Use Z Grills Cover to protect your grill is highly recommended.

Use a high-quality car wax on the outside surfaces of the grill can protect your paint finish.

Internal component For the Porcelain-coated Grill Grates. we recommend using a long-handled cleaning brush to give the Porcelain-coated Grill Grates a quick brushing when you finish the barbecue. It takes only a minute and it will be ready the next time you want to use the grill.

Clean the inner temperature probe after each time use.

Ash Clean the ash from the interior of the grill periodically. otherwise excess ash in the fire pot may cause your fire to go out. especially in the SMOKE setting. A shop vac is an excellent tool to handle the ash. (WARNING: Make sure you grill is cold when you want to clean the ash from the grill.)

CAUTION: Make sure the grill is completely cool and unplugged before you do any inspection. cleaning. maintenance or service work.
