Can I drive with the Freedom Grill on the back of my vehicle?
The Freedom Grill was designed to stay on the outside of the vehicle
at ALL times. Triple redundant transport locks mean no more smells
or messes in the back. The arm assembly swings shut and the hinge lock,
rotation lock, and linch pin keep it in place for driving.
Will the grill bounce around while driving?
When properly secured, the grill is quite stable on the back of the
vehicle. Using the cover will keep the hood from moving and protects
the regulator. Off road driving is not recommended. The grease cup
should be removed for driving.
What if I forget to unhook the propane tank?
The arm assembly will not close all of the way with the tank attached
so it must be removed before the Freedom Grill can be locked for transport.
Why can’t I swing out my grill?
Check to make sure that the transport linch pin has been removed.
Also make sure that the hinge pin at the end of the arm has been removed
and the T-Handle rotation lock is loosened.
What can I clean the Freedom Grill with?
Stainless steel cleaner works well on the hood and base of the grill
head. It is not recommended for the aluminum sides of the hood however.
Grill cleaner can be used on the aluminum and the grates and the arm
assembly may be cleaned with most car wash detergents.
What do I do if the electronic igniter doesn’t work?
Check to see if there is spark that jumps to the burner from the electrode
wire. If no spark is seen, gently bend the electrode wire closer to
the burner until a spark can be seen to jump from the igniter to the
burner when you press the starter button.
Check the battery located inside the button. Press and turn counter
Check to ensure electrode wires are connected to the igniter.
Ensure the electrode is 1/8”-3/16” above the top of the
burner and directed over a hole.
Ensure the electrode wire and burner are clean.
“When I light the grill it doesn’t flame immediately.
Sometimes it makes a ‘whoosh’ sound.”
Gas has not filled the burner. Follow this procedure:
1. Ensure all gas controls are closed.
2. Open the propane tank valve all the way.
3. Turn the left burner control knob to ignite.
4. Count five seconds, then press the igniter.
5. To light additional burners turn knob to ignite, count five,
press the igniter.
The ‘whoosh’ is delayed ignition. To eliminate this occurring,
follow the procedure above. Do not turn the control knobs to ignite
at the same time.
What if my regulator makes noise?
Vent hole on the regulator may be plugged, or regulator may be faulty.
Ensure the vent hole on the regulator is not obstructed. Clear
the hole; close the LP tank and gas control valves. Wait ten minutes
When turning the LP tank valve on, do not cover vent hole on
Check your flames for proper performance (see below) if the flames
are not correct replace regulator.
What should my grill flames look like?
Flames on the high setting should be ¾”-1” high,
bright blue with yellow flickers at the tip. To observe the flames,
remove the cooking grates and the burner cover. For an accurate visual,
provide deep shade for the basin, or do this at night.
What do I do if my grill only heats to 200-300 degrees?
Ensure the temperature gauge is functioning properly. Hold a flame
to the probe or compare the grill gauge to an oven thermometer place
in the grill.
Ensure correct start procedure. Prior to lighting grill, the
gas control knobs should be off. The propane bottle should be off.
If not, wait 15 minutes. Turn tank all the way on. Turn left burner
to ignite, wait 5 seconds; ignite. Repeat for additional burner
Check all gas connections for leaks with bubble test. If leaks
are found, replace the part or tighten the fitting.
How long should I preheat the grill?
Normal preheat, 400-500 degrees, takes about 10-15 min.
Cold weather and wind may effect your preheat time.
The Freedom Grill is not meant for use with volcanic rock or
briquettes. If used they can increase the preheat time and maximum
What if the burner flames are not bright blue?
Too much or not enough air mixes for the flame.
Elevation is the principal cause, however cold weather can affect
the mixture. Burner adjustment may be required. Refer to manual for
adjustment procedures (pg 18)
Grill is in a windy location.
