Propane (LP-Gas)is a flammable gas which can cause fires and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions which can protect both you and your family from an accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point

by point with the members of your household. Someday when there may not be a minute to lose, everyone's safety will depend on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following information, you feel you still need more information, please contact your gas supplier.


If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.That's your signal to go into immediate action!

Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your phone. Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.

Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do that IMMEDIATELY.

Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.

LP-Gasis heavier than air and may settle in low areas such as basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak, keep out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until

firefighters declare them to be safe.

Use your neighbor's phone and call a trained LP-Gasservice person and the fire department. Even though you may not continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do notre-enterthe building, vehicle, trailer, or area.

Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for escaped gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly trainedLP-Gasservice people should repair the leak, then check and relight the gas appliance for you.


Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the odor of the chemical stench put into the gas. You must find out if you can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease your ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect your sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors in the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the gas odor or their minds are on something else. Thinking about smelling a gas odor can make it easier to smell.

The odorant in LP-gasis colorless, and it can fade under some circumstances.For example, if there is an underground leak, the movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants in LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading

can occur if there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.

The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into walls, masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will take some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.

LP-Gasmay stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest gas odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately go into action as instructed earlier.


Learn to recognize the odor of LP-gas.Your local LP-Gas Dealer can give you a "Scratch and Sniff" pamphlet. Use it to find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LPGas Dealer.

If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gassystem. If you are qualified, consciously think about the odor ofLP-Gasprior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service or making adjustments.

Sometimes a basement or a closed-uphouse has a musty smell that can cover up theLP-Gasodor. Do not try to light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area where the conditions are such that you may not detect the odor if there has been a leak ofLP-Gas.

Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks, or reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed

to set too long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which have been out of service for a time may develop internal rust which will cause odor fade. If such conditions are suspected to exist, a periodic sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you have any question about the gas odor, call your LP-gas dealer. A periodic sniff test of the LP-gas is a good safety measure under any condition.

If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gasodorant and you think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the same immediate action recommended above for the occasion when you do detect the odorizedLP-Gas.

If you experience a complete "gas out," (the container is under no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately. If the container valve is left on, the container may draw in some air through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this occurs, some new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is left open, then treat the container as a new tank. Always be sure your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off at the container before it goes completely empty or having it refilled before it is completely empty.

The above connectors may be used if acceptable by the authority having jurisdiction.

Consult the current National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 CAN/CGAB149 (.1 or .2) installation code.

Installing a New Main Gas Cock

Each appliance should have its own manual gas cock.

A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of the unit. Where none exists, or where its size or location is not adequate, contact your local authorized installer for installation or relocation.

Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant to the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be checked for leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap solution watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if unexposed, a pressure test should be made.

Never use an exposed flame to check for leaks. Appliance must be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe capped or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with appliance connected; control valve will sustain damage!

A gas valve and ground joint union should be installed in the gas line upstream of the gas control to aid in servicing. It is required by the National Fuel Gas Code that a drip line be installed near the gas inlet. This should consist of a vertical length of pipe tee connected into the gas line that is capped on the bottom in which condensation and foreign particles

may collect.


Figure 1

Method of Installing a Tee Fitting Sediment Trap Pressure Testing of the Gas Supply System

1.To check the inlet pressure to the gas valve, a 1/8" (3mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connection, must be placed immediately upstream of the gas supply connection to the appliance.

2.The appliance and its appliance main gas valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

3.The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its equipment shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

Attention! If one of the procedures results in pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (14" w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the appliance gas valve, it will result in a hazardous condition.

Checking Manifold Pressure

Both Propane and Natural gas valves have a built-inpressure regulator in the gas valve. Natural gas models will have a manifold pressure of approximately 3.5" w.c. (.871kPa) for maximum input or 1.7" w.c. (.423kPa) for minimum input at the valve outlet with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 5.0" w.c. (1.245kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of 10.5" (2.615kPa) w.c. Propane gas models will have a manifold pressure approximately 10.0"w.c. (2.49kPa) for maximum input or 5.9" w.c. (1.469kPa) for minimum input at the valve outlet with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 11.0" w.c. (2.739kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of 13.0" w.c. (3.237kPa).

A 1/8" (3mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connection, is located on the outlet side of the gas control.

Installation on Rugs and Tile

If this appliance is to be installed directly on carpeting, tile, or other combustible material, other than wood flooring, the appliance shall be installed on a metal or wood panel extending the full width and depth of the appliance.

The base referred to above does not mean the fire-proofbase as used on wood stoves. The protection is primarily for rugs that may be extremely thick andlight-colortile that can discolor.

Clearances (Figures 2, 3, 4 and 5)

In selecting a location for installation, it is necessary to provide adequate accessibility clearances for servicing and proper operation.

Delayed Ignition Reset Switch Assembly (Figure 14)

Attach black wire from REMOTE/OFF/ON switch to the front 1/4" male tab on the reset switch. Attachment of black wire onto the reset switch is done in conjunction with the preceding steps for Installation of Wire Channel Assembly. Black wire on the back of the reset switch is attached to the TH/TP terminal on gas valve (this connection is factory installed).

The reset switch can be activated if the main burner has a delayed ignition. The right, relief door is connected by a metal wire to a cotter pin that is inserted into the reset switch. When a delayed ignition occurs the right, relief door pivots upward, the metal wire pulls the cotter pin out of the reset switch and the main burner is shut OFF.

Whenever the delayed ignition reset switch is activated you must contact a qualified service person to determine the cause for the delayed ignition reset switch to be activated.

Reassembly and Resealing Gas Accumulation Relief System (Relief Doors) and Combustion Chamber

Whenever the relief doors are pivoted open by a delayed ignition in the main burner, the relief door gaskets and combustion chamber must be examined by a qualified service person for damage. All damaged gaskets on the relief doors and combustion chamber must be replaced by a qualified service person. If damage occurs to the combustion chamber, it must be replaced by a qualified service person. Contact Empire Comfort Systems, Inc. for replacement parts.

Sidewall Venting Installation

The maximum vertical and horizontal distances for one (1) 90° elbow are 25 feet and 12 feet, respectively. Vertical dimensions are based on top of fireplace to centerline of pipe. Horizontal dimensions are based on centerline of pipe to termination.

CAUTION: Total vertical run MUST BE completed before starting horizontal run.Horizontal chimney run must slope upward (away from fireplace)1/4" per foot and vent termination must be level.

Under no circumstances should combustible materials (including siding) be closer than 2" from the top of the 6 5/8" pipe or closer than 1" on the side and bottom.

Cutting the Hole (Figure 15)

After the appliance has been positioned in its permanent location, the hole through the exterior wall of the house can be cut. This hole needs to be 10" high x 10" wide square with its center line determined by the amount of vertical arise and horizontal run of the termination. When locating the hole it must be noted that the bottom of the cap must be 12" above the ground level, and top of the cap must be no less than 18" below a combustible projection, and no closer than 9" to any wall running parallel to vent termination.
