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

bypointwiththemembersofyourhousehold.Somedaywhen theremaynotbeaminutetolose,everyone’ssafetywilldepend on knowing exactly what to do. If, afterreading 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 odorof 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. If you detectany odor, treatit as a serious leak.Immediately go into action as instructed earlier.

SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER

Learn to recognize the odor of LP-Gas.Your localLP-GasDealer can give you a “Scratch and Sniff” pamphlet. Use it to find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that yourLP-Gashas a weak or abnormal odor, call yourLP-GasDealer.

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 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.

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 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.

Neveruse an exposed flame to check forleaks.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.

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 regulator in the gas valve. Natural gas models will have a manifold 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).

REAR VENT CONVERSION

VERTICAL VENTING

Note: It is recommended that the flue cover plate tab be pulled outward prior to removal.

This will ensure that the plate is not accidentally dropped inside the rear air chamber.

Converting flue take-offto rear venting

Whenswitchingouttheflueandinletventcollarstorunhorizontally off the rear vent, the following steps must be taken.

1.Removetheinletventcollar(8screws)andfluecollar(4screws) from the top of the fireplace, and set to the side.

2.Remove the inlet cover plate and flue cover plate located on the back of the fireplace. These will be used to close the top flue and inlet openings.

3.Insert the insulation retainer bracket and insulation into the top

flue pipe before reinstalling the flue cover plate over the top flue with 4 screws.

4.Reinstall the inlet cover plate over the top inlet opening with 4 screws. See illustration above..

5.Install the flue collar assembly to the rear flue with 4 screws.

6.Install the inlet vent collar to the rear of the fireplace with 8 screws.

7.This completes the conversion for a rear vent application. Note: for top vented installations, the insulation and retainer are to be removed from the flue pipe and discarded.

VENT SYSTEMS

The following vent systems are acceptable for use with the DVP (42,48) series fireplaces:

Simpson Duravent® GS 5" - 8", Refer to Page 23

*American Metal Products 5" - 8"

*Selkirk Direct-Temp®5" - 8"

*Security Secure Vent® 5" - 8"

Empire Flexvent Kit DVVK-5F,Refer to Page 26

*Can not be used in side wall horizontal vent installations in the State of Massachusetts.
