IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Before enclosing the vent pipe assembly, operate the appliance to ensure it is venting properly.

DO NOT OPERATE THIS APPLIANCE WITHOUT GLASS FRONT PANEL INSTALLED

If this appliance is 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 fireproof base as used on wood stoves. The protection is for rugs that are extremely thick and light colored tile.

Children and adults should be alerted to the hazards of high surface temperatures and should stay away to avoid burns or clothing ignition.

Young children should be carefully supervised when they are in the same room as the appliance.

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!

• Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your

firefighters declare them to be safe.

 

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.

The odorant in LP-Gasis colorless, and it can fade under some circumstances.For example, if there is an underground leak, the movementofthegasthroughsoilcanfiltertheodorant.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.

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.

SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER

Learn to recognize the odor of LP-Gas.Your localLP-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-Gashas a weak or abnormal odor, call yourLP-GasDealer.

If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gassystem.Ifyouarequalified,consciouslythinkabouttheodor 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.

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!

NOTE: The millivolt gas controls are equipped with a captured screw type pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to provide a 1/8" test point up stream of the control.

When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings.

Theapplianceandit’sindividualshutoffvalvemustbedisconnected from supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system 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).

Figure 10.

4.Use (8) 1/2" hex-headscrews supplied in hardware package, to screw through slotted holes in drywall strip and then screw intopre-drilledholes on fireplace side. Measure from face of fireplace to face of drywall strip to determine final depth.

Vent Pipe Clearance

Note: Maintain one inch (1") of clearance around vertical vent pipe.See Figure 9A. For horizontal vent, maintain a minimum 1" clearance to the bottom and sides of the vent, and 3" clearance to combustibles above the vent pipe.See Figure 9B.
