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.

Decorativelavarockorsmallwoodpiecesshouldneverbeplaced 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, mustnotbereduced.Thisflowofairisreducedifdirt,lintorother obstructionsbuild-uparoundorinsidetheventuri.Anyobstructionin the venturi tube area must be removed. The flow of air into the venturiisalsoreducedifthegasorificeisn’tcenteredintheventuri inlet and/or is not aligned with the venturi. Any misalignment of the 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 avent-freelog set can cause the flame to impinge on the log and create a sooting situation.

WARNING:Donotallowfanstoblowdirectlyintothefireplace. 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

Avoid the use of scented or decorative candles while the log set is in operation. Candles produce a residue in the air that creates a sootlikesubstance.Burningcandleswhilethelogsetisoperating magnifiestheproblem.Itshouldbenotedthatcandles,ingeneral, produce soot. The amount of time burned and the quantity of candles burned will determine the amount of soot produced and deposited.

Make Owners Aware of Proper Log Set Operation

Properlyinstalledandproperlymaintainedlogsetsdonotdeposit 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

Ifinstallingthisunitintoasunkenfireplace,youmustraisethefloor toinsureadequateairflowandguardagainstsooting.Raisefireplace floor using a non-combustiblematerial, which is secure.

Glass Doors

Makesurethatglassdoorsareopenduringalloperationsofthelog set. The opening of the glass door frame should be the dimension used for the minimum front opening of the firebox.

Woodburning Fireplaces

The interior of the firebox and the chimney should be cleaned and freeofallcreosotebeforeinstallingagasburninglogset.Creosote will soften when heated and can drop on the log set causing odors and possibly sooting.

WARNING: Before installing in asolid-fuelburning fireplace, the chimney flue and firebox must be cleaned of soot, creosote, ashes and loose paint by a qualified chimney cleaner.
