Lynx Grill Safety Tips
- After each use wipe down the exterior of the grill to remove grease and splatters.
- Be sure to follow the cleaning instructions for keeping the grates and burners clean and ready for use.
- Use a commercially available Stainless Steel cleaner to clean and polish the exterior surfaces.
Doing these things on a regular basis minimizes the amount of effort required. Part of the appeal of your Lynx Grill is the fine grain finish. When removing stubborn stains:
- Do not use metallic abrasives and always rub in the direction of the grain.
- Some household cleaning products are not suitable for stainless steel; be sure to read the label before using on your Lynx Grill.
- Always use the mildest cleaning solution first, scrubbing in the direction of the grain. Specks of grease may gather in the grain of the stainless steel and bake on to the surface, giving the appearance of rust.
To remove these baked-on foods use a fine to medium grit non-metallic abrasive pad (Scotch Brite is good) in conjunction with a stainless steel cleaner. Solutions used for cleaning concrete and masonry can be very corrosive and will 'attack' stainless steel. Ensure your Lynx products are well protected before you allow the use of such chemicals near your grill.
SPECIAL NOTE FOR LOCATIONS NEAR POOLS AND COASTAL AREAS
The 304 stainless steel material used in the construction of a Lynx Grill is highly rust resistant, however, chlorine in the air from swimming pools or the salt from sea air may cause surface rust to appear and even create some pitting if left on the product.
Here are a few tips to avoid this:
- Regularly wipe down the exterior surfaces with a damp cloth. (Micro fiber cloths such as Ecloth perform very well).
- Allow the surfaces to dry before installing the cover. Do not cover a damp grill.
- In extreme environments apply a rust inhibitor which leaves a microscopic protective layer on the grill. Products that provide a layer of vapor corrosion inhibitors (VpCI) protect the surface very well.
- For seasonal storage use the product referred to above, ensure the grill is dry and then cover and secure the cover to minimize the amount of damp air getting to the surfaces.
THE LYNX LIMITED LIFE TIME WARRANTY PROVIDES PROTECTION AGAINST RUST THROUGH OF PARTS THAT RENDER THE PRODUCT INOPERATIVE. IT DOES NOT COVER OCCASIONAL SURFACE RUST OR STAINING DUE TO ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS.
After your first use certain areas of the grill may discolor from the intense heat given off by the burners - this is normal and cannot be cleaned off. For light and heavy food stains there are many different stainless steel cleaners available.
The drip tray should be cleaned after each use. After the grill is completely cool, remove the drip tray by pulling it out until it stops, then lifting the front edge until the drip tray comes free.
Clean it with hot soapy water or an oven-style cleaning product and re-install. When using an oven-style cleaning product be sure to carefully follow the manufacturer's instructions. Many of these cleaners are toxic and can damage the stainless steel finish if not used properly.
Also, check the tray after rain. If you've left the grill uncovered, you may need to remove the drip tray drain plug to drain the water from the tray. The drain plug can be removed with a flat-head screwdriver
DO NOT ALLOW EXCESS GREASE OR LIQUIDS TO ACCUMULATE IN THE DRIP TRAY AS THIS MAY CREATE A FIRE HAZARD. NEVER USE GRILL WITHOUT DRIP TRAY PROPERLY INSTALLED.
The easiest way to clean the grill racks is to do so immediately after turning off the burners, while they are still hot. Wearing a long BBQ mitt to protect your hand from steam, dip a brass bristle brush in hot water and scrub the grill rack. Dip the brush frequently because the steam helps remove baked-on foods.
The ceramic briquettes normally burn off any accumulated food drippings. But you may occasionally experience larger spills that don't burn off under normal use. When this happens, let the grill cool completely. Remove the racks and then the briquette trays by lifting the front edge and pulling them toward you.
Flip the trays over and put them back in place over the burner. Light the burners and set them to ?HI? for 5 - 10 minutes to burn the briquettes clean. Any remaining food items can be brushed off using a soft brush. Be sure the trays have completely cooled before reinstalling them. Replacement briquette trays can be ordered from Lynx or from your dealer.
MAIN BRASS BURNER
Make sure the grill is completely cool before proceeding. Ensure that the gas supply is off and all control knobs are in the "OFF" position.
To Remove Brass Burners:
Remove the grill racks and briquette trays. Lift the burner up until the legs exit the frame. Then pull to the rear of the grill so the burner head comes off the brass orifice at the front. Angle the burner sideways and lift it out. Be careful not to change the air shutter position.
To Clean the Brass Burner:
To maximize grill performance, clean the exterior of the burner with a wire brush. Remove stubborn scale with a metal scraper. Clear any clogged ports with a straightened paper clip. Never use a wooden toothpick as it may break off and clog the port. Shake out any debris through the air shutter. Use a flashlight to inspect the burner inlet to ensure it is not blocked. If obstructions can be seen, clean it with a paper clip or a pipe cleaner.
PROPER PLACEMENT OF EACH BURNER IS CRITICAL. AFTER CLEANING THEY MUST BE CENTERED ON THE BRASS ORIFICE, RESTING LEVEL WITHOUT ANY ROCKING. FAILURE TO MEET THESE CONDITIONS MAY CAUSE A VERY DANGEROUS CONDITION THAT CAN CAUSE PERSONAL INJURY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE.
