Can I use an extension cord?

Back to Gas Grill Help

For best performance, we do not recommend using an extension cord. If you must use an extension cord,  for your safety, use the following:

• Use only outdoor type with 3 prong grounding plug.

• Rated for 15 amperes or more

• Approved by UL

• Marked with a W-A and a tag stating “Suitable for Use with Outdoor Appliance”.

• Use the shortest length extension cord required. Do not connect 2 or more extension cords together.

• A 12 or 14 gauge extension cord of 50 ft. or less is acceptable.

• Do not use 16 or 18 gauge extension cords. Damage to household wiring and/or fire could result.

• Keep connections dry and off of the ground.

• Do not let cord hang over edge of table top or other items where it can be pulled by children or tripped over.
