BBQ CyberQ Wifi Temperature Control Safety Warnings

SAFETY WARNINGS

INSTALLATION / SAFETY INFORMATION. READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS USER GUIDE COMPLETELY BEFORE INSTALLING OR USING THIS PRODUCT!!

WARNING: FIRE HAZARD, BURN HAZARD!! Even quality electronics can fail CAUSING THE BLOWER TO RUN CONSTANTLY, RESULTING IN EXCESSIVE TEMPERATURES! Power Draft Fans can get the temperature of your pit higher than through natural draft, so use extra caution in opening your pit and determining its placement. Always inspect your fan and probe wires for damage. Damaged wires can cause the blower to run constantly causing your pit to become excessively hot.

WARNING: FIRE HAZARD, BURN HAZARD!! FLAMES, SPARKS AND LIT EMBERS CAN EXIT ANY OPENING ON YOUR PIT, CAUSING FIRES - Keep your pit located a safe distance from anything flammable like buildings, walls, solvents, cars, fuel, wood piles, furniture, etc. and always use caution when opening the pit. Be aware that an ember that has fallen or is ejected from the charcoal cooker can be blown by a light wind into a garage or other structure, debris field, woods, or grass field and cause a fire to start. Always have a fire extinguisher and water supply close by. If the cooker is to be used on a combustible surface such as a wooden deck, always place the cooker on a non-flammable pad intended for this purpose.

WARNING: FIRE HAZARD, BURN HAZARD !! Even quality electronics can fail and cause the temperature to read incorrectly - BE SURE TO USE A REDUNDANT DIAL THERMOMETER AS A BACKUP TEMPERATURE SENSOR ON YOUR PIT – This will allow you to verify your control’s temperature reading for your safety. Even though the CyberQ Wi-Fi can be controlled remotely, allowing you to cook while you are away, someone should always be present when your pit is cooking to prevent fires.

WARNING: SMOKE CAN COMBUST WHEN OXYGEN IS INTRODUCED AND PRODUCE SEVERE BURNS – ALWAYS USE CAUTION WHEN OPENING THE LID OR DOOR OF YOUR PIT.

WARNING: KEEP YOUR CONTROL DRY – Allowing your control to get wet can cause damage to its electronics and/or make it operate incorrectly CREATING A HAZARDOUS CONDITION.

WARNING: Pit fires can occur when liquids are spilled or when cooking at temperatures that cause surfaces inside the cooker to reach the ignition temperature of fats. Never pour or toss water directly into a fat fire. Reduce the temperature by cooling the fire in the firebox with a water spray. Close the cooking chamber door and the firebox while it is steaming to smother the fire. This procedure may need to be repeated several times before the pit fire is under control.

NOTE: Pit fires can be largely avoided if the cooker is kept clean and free from fat buildup during or between cooks. Changing drip trays during a cook cycle will help keep flammable fats in the cooker to a minimum. You are dealing with an open fire when you are cooking on charcoal and wood.

WARNING: There are hot surfaces on all parts of the cooker before during and after cooking. Always wear protective clothing when tending the cooker or attempting to extinguish a fire or dumping a firebox in the proper ash receptacle at the end of a cook. Always be ready to call your local Fire Company in the case of an emergency before the situation gets out of control.

CAUTION: Fire danger is always present, even in the best of conditions. There is no substitute for continuous safety scrutiny on the part of the user.

WARNING: SHOCK HAZARD, HIGH VOLTAGE!! The power supply for this product is plugged into a 120 or 240 VAC Mains. THIS VOLTAGE CAN KILL OR HURT YOU. KEEP THE POWER SUPPLY AWAY FROM WATER AND OFF OF THE GROUND - do not let it get exposed to rain or snow and NEVER TOUCH THE POWER SUPPLY IF IT GETS WET.

CAUTION: To satisfy FCC RF Exposure requirements for mobile and base station transmission devices, a separation distance of 20 cm or more should be maintained between the antenna of this device and persons during operation. To ensure compliance, operation at closer than this distance is not recommended. The antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.

The CyberQ Wi-Fi Contains Transmitter Module FCC ID: W70MRF24WG0MAMB with Radio regulation certification for United States (FCC), Canada (IC), Europe (ETSI), Korea(KC), and Japan (ARIB) 2.4 GHz, IEEE Std. 802.11b/gTM, and Wi-Fi® certified (WFA ID: WFA16869)

The Wi-Fi components in this product have been certified under Wi-Fi 802.11 withWPA2TM, and WPATM System Interoperability ASD Model Test Plan with Test Engine For IEEE 802.11b and g Devices).

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy, and if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.


• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.


• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the

receiver is connected.


• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

Other 2.4GHz devices, such as cordless phones and wireless networked devices, may cause interference with the CyberQ Wi-Fi and prevent a reliable connection. It is the customer’s responsibility to diagnose the source of the interference and determine which devices need to be turned off or eliminated from the installation.

Under ideal conditions with no obstructions, the CyberQ Wi-Fi can achieve a range of up to 1000 ft. (line of sight, outdoors). Indoors, the range is unpredictable and depends greatly on the building construction. The indoor range is typically 50-150 feet.

Important Note: The Big Green Egg and other ceramic grills present a special situation that can lead to early probe failure.

If you use the plate setter heat diffuser, you need to run the probe cables over one of the ceramic legs. The heat coming up through the gaps is intense and focused, and if the cable is exposed to this heat, it begins to break down much more quickly than usual. Even if you do not use the plate setter, any heat or flame “event” inside your Egg can send a blast of heat – even flames – up the inside of the smoker, sometimes ruining a probe instantly. In this case, we recommend placing a disposable pan inside the Egg to create a “safe zone” for your probes. This can be done with or without the plate setter. Follow these steps and you can experience the 2-3 year probe life that is common with other types of smokers.
