SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP GAS

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.

LP-GASWARNING ODOR

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!

Donotoperateelectricswitches,lightmatches,useyourphone. 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 outofbasementsandotherlowareas.Stayoutuntilfirefighters 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.

NO ODOR DETECTED - ODOR FADE

Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the odor of the chemical 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.

TheodorantinLP-Gasiscolorless,anditcanfadeundersomecircumstances.For example, if there is an underground leak, the movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants

in LP-Gasalso are subject to oxidation. This fading can occur if there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.

Theodorantinescapedgascanadsorborabsorbontoorintowalls, 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.Ifyoudetectanyodor,treatitasaseriousleak.Immediately go into action as instructed earlier.

SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER

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 LP-Gas Dealer.

Ifyouarenotqualified,donotlightpilotlights,performservice, 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.

Sometimesabasementoraclosed-uphousehasamustysmellthat 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 newcylindersandtanks,ispossible.Therefore,peopleshould 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.

Ifyouexperienceacomplete“gasout,”(thecontainerisunder 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.

Installing the 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!

NOTE: The millivolt gas controls are equipped with a captured screwtypepressuretestpoint,thereforeitisnotnecessarytoprovide a 1/8" test point up stream of the control.

When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings. Theapplianceandit’sindividualshutoffvalvemustbedisconnected fromsupplypipingsystemduringanypressuretestingofthatsystem at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).

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

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

Checking Manifold Pressures

Both Propane and Natural gas valves have a built-inpressure regulatorinthegasvalve.Naturalgasmodelswillhaveamanifold pressure of approximately 3.5" w.c. (.871kPa) at the valve outlet with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 4.5" w.c. (1.120kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of 14.0" w.c. (3.484kPa). Propane gas models will have a manifold pressure approximately 10.0" w.c. (2.49kPa) at the valve outlet with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 10.8" w.c. (2.68kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of 14.0" w.c. (3.484kPa).

VENTING AND INSTALLATION

1.Before beginning, remove glass door and log package from unit. Also check to make sure there is no hidden damage to the unit. Take a minute and plan out the gas, venting and electrical route. It is best to start with the gas line first, followed by the chimney liner and electrical supply requirements.

2.Minimum fireplace opening requirements are shown in Figure 2 of this installation manual. The firebrick (refractory), glass doors, screen rails, screen mesh and log grates can be removed from afactory built fireplace in order to gain minimum gas insert opening requirements prior to installing the gas fireplace insert.

3.This insert requires no hearth extensions. Combustible material on the floor may be installed up to the insert. Do not obstruct the lower louver of the insert. The original fireplace cannot be returned to solid fuel in this condition.

4.The metal floor of the solid fuel firebox may be removed to facilitate the installation of the insert. CLEARANCE TO COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL UNDER THE INSERT IS 1/4”. YOU MUST USE THE LEVELING LEGS TO RAISE THE INSERT A MINIMUM OF 1/4” IF THE INSERT IS TO SIT ON COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL. The side walls and top structure of the firebox may not be altered with the exception of removable baffles and dampers. Smoke shields, shelves and baffles may be removed if attached with mechanical fasteners. The original fireplace cannot be returned to solid fuel in this condition.

5.Combustible facing material may be installed over the original combustible facing material on the solid fuel fireplace. The original specified clearances of a factory-builtfireplace must be maintained, with the exception of the hearth. Clearances on a masonry fireplace must be maintained at 12” from the opening for combustible projections over 1 1/2”. Clearances for combustible projections under 1 1/2” must be maintained at 6” from the opening per NFPA211. Plan the surround size accordingly. A surround mustbeusedwiththeinsert.UNDERNOCIRCUMSTANCE CAN COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL BE PLACED BEHIND THE SURROUND!

6.The insert surround is tested and approved with this gas insert and may cover existing air circulation vents or grills on the solid fuel fireplace it is installed into. If the surround does not cover the entire ventilation grill surface, the exposed grill area should be left open.

NOTE: Surround panel kits have been tested and approved to cover existing air circulation vents or grills.

NOTE: Cutting of sheet metal parts of a fireplace in order to install the fireplace insert is prohibited.

WARNING: Only the surround as supplied may be used to cover integral grills on the solid fuel-burningfireplace. No other components such as shrouds, sheet metal plates, etc. may be used to seal off vents.

7.To assure top performance, safety and efficiency, inserts must be installed with an approved flue liner as per CAN/CGA B-149or National Fuel Code ANSI Z223 and these instructions.

Note: The following statement is also provided on a separate label plate in the instruction packet. Prior to installation of the fireplace insert, the installer must mechanically secure this warning plate to the inside of the fireplace for future reference as required.

WARNING: The solid fuel fireplace has been converted foruse with gas only and cannot be used forburning wood or solid fuels unless all original parts have been replaced and the fireplace has been reapproved by the authority having jurisdiction.

8.The solid fuel fireplaces’ flue damper must be fully locked in the open position or removed for installation of the gas fireplace insert.

9.The fireplace and fireplace chimney must be cleaned and in good working order and constructed of noncombustible materials.

10.Make sure that all chimney cleanouts fit properly so air cannot leak into the chimney.

11.Install the insert without the surround panels attached and make all gas, venting, and electrical connections.

If the factory built fireplace does not have gas access holes provided, an access hole of 1 1/2” diameter (37.5mm) or less may be drilled through the lower sides or bottom of the firebox in a proper workmanship like manner. This access hole must be plugged with a non-combustibleinsulation after the gas supply line has been installed.

12.To complete the installation, install surround panel assembly. Please refer to instructions included with the surround panel kit.

Ensure there are no obstructions to side air passages of decorative trim once installed on insert.

INSTALLING THE VENT SYSTEM

Vent System Installation Precautions
