IMPORTANT INSTALLATION GUIDELINES

Proper Log Placement

Log placement is critical to proper burner performance. Logs must be correctly positioned onto the burner. The photos in this manual show the proper pinned position for logs on this set. Owners need to be shown proper log placement and instructed not to move the logs.

Logs must fit firmly onto the burner when positioned as shown in the photos. Malformed logs or logs with sloppy pin holes must be replaced.

Proper Placement of Rock Wool and Decorative Lava Rock

Rock wool can be added to burners for a glowing ember effect. It must be positioned only on the front portion of the burner. The photos in this manual show the proper placement of rock wool.

Decorative lava rock or small wood pieces should never be placed on the burner. These items are only for placement on the floor of the fireplace or firebox.

Proper Primary Airflow into Burner

For proper burner operation and flame appearance, the flow of primary air into the venturi tube, located on the rear of the burner, must not be reduced. This flow of air is reduced if dirt, lint or other obstructionsbuild-uparoundorinsidetheventuri.Anyobstructionin the venturi tube area must be removed. The flow of air into the venturiisalsoreducedifthegasorificeisn’tcenteredintheventuri inletand/orisnotalignedwiththeventuri.Anymisalignmentofthe burner orifice may be corrected by bending the shutter cap holding the orifice to the inlet of the venturi tube.

Ceiling Fans, Portable Fans or Logs Installed Near Cold Air Returns

Ceiling fans or oscillating floor type fans need to be monitored during the operation of vent-freelogs. If the air blows directly into the flame causing it to impinge on the log set, or firebox, it should be turned off or redirected. Ceiling fans could be reversed to possibly eliminate flame impingement, and the floor fan could be redirected. Upon installation, be aware of any cold air returns or vents in the proximity of the log set. Any draft created around

a vent-freelog set can cause the flame to impinge on the log and create a sooting situation.

WARNING: Do not allow fans to blow directly into the fireplace. Avoid any drafts that alter burner flame patterns.

WARNING: Do not use a blower insert, heat exchanger insert or other accessory not approved for use with this heater.

Candles

Avoidtheuseofscentedordecorativecandleswhilethelogsetisin operation.Candlesproducearesidueintheairthatcreatesasootlike substance.Burningcandleswhilethelogsetisoperatingmagnifies the problem. It should be noted that candles, in general, produce soot.Theamountoftimeburnedandthequantityofcandlesburned will determine the amount of soot produced and deposited.

Make Owners Aware of Proper Log Set Operation

Properly installed and properly maintained log sets do not deposit soot on the logs. If users see soot appear on a log, call for service. Do not continue to operate the log set.

Sunken Fireplace

If installing this unit into a sunken fireplace, you must raise the floor to insure adequate airflow and guard against sooting. Raise fireplace floor using a non-combustiblematerial, which is secure.

Glass Doors

Make sure that glass doors are open during all operations of the logset.Theopeningoftheglassdoorframeshouldbethedimension used for the minimum front opening of the firebox.

Wood Burning Fireplaces

The interior of the firebox and the chimney should be cleaned and free of all creosote before installing a gas burning log set. Creosote will soften when heated and can drop on the logset causing odors and possibly sooting.

WARNING:Beforeinstallinginasolid-fuelburningfireplace,thechimney flue and firebox must be cleaned of soot, creosote, ashes and loose paint by a qualified chimney cleaner.
