How to assemble Char-Broil gas grills.

A grill is a cooking tool used to broil meat and vegetables over a fire. There are a few different kinds of grills, some of which include charcoal, fire pit, smoker, electric and gas. One such gas grill is the Char-Broil grill. This grill is popular because of the its ability to heat up in mere minutes rather than having to wait for a flame or charcoal to heat up. One drawback of the grill, however, is having to assemble it.


Step 1

Lay the Char-Broil gas grill upside down and unfold the legs by gently pulling them out toward the side of the grill. Turn the grill on its side so the front of the grill faces up toward you. Slide the top of the "front panel" underneath the control panel on the front of the grill and set the lower part of the front panel on the grill legs. Match up the holes on the front panel with the holes on the grill legs and secure the panel in place using four nuts and bolts.

Step 2

Attach the "back panel" to the grill by turning the grill upside down and placing the panel on the back legs of the grill. Secure the back panel in place using four more nuts and bolts. Align the tabs on the wheels with the notches in the grill legs to attach the wheels to the grill. Snap them into place while making sure the text on the wheel assembly faces inward.


Step 3

Turn the grill right side up. Place the briquettes on the briquette grate and place the drip riser bar along the center of the briquette grate so the point of the bar faces upward. Set the briquette grate assembly onto the bottom of the grill.

Step 4

Attach the lid of the grill to the back of the grill by lining up the two hinges and inserting a hinge pin in each hole. Attach the handle to the front of the grill lid by inserting it into the pre-made holes and attaching it with two wing nuts.


Step 5

Insert the "Swing Away" pivot wire into the grill lid and the flex leg wires into the bottom of the grill. Set the cooking grate into the bottom of the grill and attach the side shelves by inserting the shelf tubes into the leg tubes of the grill. Press them firmly into place and secure them with a push-fastener.


Step 6

Hang the grease clip on the grill bottom, in the center, and attach an empty soup can to the grease clip. Attach a 12-inch natural gas hose to the valve just beneath the control panel and tighten it into place using an adjustable wrench.

Step 7

Attach the grill to a natural gas source by screwing the hose onto a gas flow pipe. Push the sleeve of the hose back toward the gas flow pipe to attach it completely. Leak test the grill by turning all of the grill control knobs "Off" and using an old toothbrush to apply a solution of dish soap and water to all the gas connections. Turn the gas source on and look to see if there are any "growing" bubbles, if so there is a leak and you need to re-tighten all of the connections.


Use a pliers or wrench to tighten all the bolts and gas connections.
