Follow this step-by-step guide (with pictures) to replace the injector on a gas valve. Because of safety concerns, please ensure a professional does this work.

Before using your Garth barbecue or oven , it is important that you:

  • Read all safety warnings and operating instructions carefully and thoroughly.
  • Always operate the barbecue or oven in accordance with the instructions in the Operating Manual.
  • Keep your instruction manual in an easily accessible location.
  • Remember to keep children and pets away from the barbecue while in use.
  • Reduce the amount of fat on the meats that you are cooking and allow marinades to absorb into the meat – maximising flavour. When cooking marinated meats, be sure to drain the excess marinades before you place your meat on the barbecue.
  • Once you have a flare-up occurring, take control of it by moving the meat that is dripping fat to another location on the barbecue.
  • Clean the flame tamer and sand tray regularly.

No. Only two burners should be on at a time when  the roasting hood is in the down position.  If you have all the burners alight and the hood down you will damage or crack the hood and void your warranty.

This is known as a “flash-back”.

This is what you should do:

  • Turn the barbecue and gas cylinders OFF.
  • Allow the barbecue to cool and then check to see whether the burners have any obstructions such as spiders or insects.
  • Check that the Jetforce ignition is aligned properly with the neck of the burner and is not obstructed.
  • If the problem persists contact the local Garth Support Office in your region.

Do the following:

  • Turn off all control knobs.
  • Turn off gas cylinder.
  • Using the spanner, tighten all gas fittings.
  • Check all gas connections and hoses by doing the soapy water leak test (refer to your operation manual for details).
  • Regularly check your gas connections and lines for damage, cuts or cracks.
  • If the odours still persists, contact your local Garth Support office for assistance.

When connecting your gas cylinders, always perform a leak test of the gas connections and lines with a soapy water solution. Turn the gas bottle on without lighting the barbecue and check for bubbles.

You can refer to your product manual for further details on how to do this. If you do not have a printed copy of the product manual, search for your product in the Product Information section of this website, and download an online version.

If the leak persists, contact your local store of purchase for assistance or replacement.

  • Check that the hoses have been properly connected as per your operation and assembly manual.
  • Check that there are no obstructions (such as spider webs, insects etc) in or around the burner / Venturi

Not all Garth barbecues have been approved for conversion to natural gas. It is advisable to first check the data plate and the operation and instruction manual that comes with your barbecue.

Once you have confirmed that the barbecue is approved for natural gas conversion, you will need to ensure that the work is carried out only by a registered Gas Fitter / Plumber. A certificate of compliance must be issued upon completion.

Conversion carried out by an unqualified person will automatically void your barbecue’s warranty.
