Maximum and Minimum Input

The gas valve on the appliance allows the input to adjust between a maximum input of 30,000 to a minimum input of 21,000 Btuh. Pleasebeadvised,themaximuminputprovidesthegreatestamount of yellow flame and ember glow on the log set. The minimum input substantially decreases the yellow flame and ember glow on the log set.

VENT SAFETY SHUTOFF SYSTEM

This heater must be properly connected to a venting system. This heater is equipped with a vent safety shutoff system.

Warning:

Operationofthisheater,whennotconnectedtoaproperly installed and maintained venting system or tampering with the vent safety shutoff system, can result in carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and possible death.

This appliance needs fresh air for safe operation and must be installed so there are provisions for adequate combustion and ventilation air.

This fireplace heater is equipped with a vent safety switch. The vent safety switch will cause gas flow to the pilot to "shut off" due to improper venting or a blocked flue.

If the vent safety switch continues to "shut off" the gas flow to the pilot a qualified service person must be contacted to inspect for improper venting, blockage in the vent pipe or the vent safety switch for being defective.

Reversible Vertical or Horizontal Draft Diverter

This fireplace heater has a reversible draft diverter. The draft diverter is installed in the vertical position at the factory. Please usethefollowingstepstochangethedraftdiverterfromthevertical position to the horizontal position.

1.Remove(8)hex-headscrewslocatedadjacenttothefluecollaron the draft diverter.

2.Rotate flue collar to the horizontal position on the draft diverter.

3.Attachfluecollartodraftdiverterwith(8)hex-headscrewsfromStep 1.

VENTING

Venting

1.Flue pipe must be as large as the flue collar on the draft diverter.

2.Maintain an upward slope of at least 1/4 inch (6mm) per foot of horizontal run.

3.Run flue pipe as directly as possible with a minimum of elbows.

4.Flue pipe should extend through the wall of a chimney to be flush with inner wall.

5.Flue pipe must be adequately supported by metal straps.

6.Single wall vent pipe may be attached directly to the draft hood of the fireplace heater when a clearance of 2 1/2 inches (64mm) is maintained between the single wall vent pipe and thecombustiblewalloftheroominwhichthefireplaceheater is located. Use double wall vent pipe for clearances less than 2 1/2 inches (64mm) to combustibles.

7.For flue pipe running through walls and roof, use B-1[1 inch (25mm) clearance to combustibles] vent pipe.

8.Chimneys should extend at least 2 feet (.6m) above the roof and above any object or nearby building within 10 feet (3m).

9.Open tees should not be used in the flue pipe.

10.Appliance must not be connected to a chimney flue that is servicing a separate solid-fuelburning appliance.

For proper venting, do not attach a 90° elbow directly to draft diverter. Ifpossible, attach2feet(.6m)ofstraightventpipebefore an elbow is used. Use of 45° elbows is recommended.

Uninsulated single-wallmetal pipe shall not be used outdoors in cold climates for venting gas utilization equipment.

Ventilation and Combustion Air

Fireplace heaters shall be installed in a location in which the facilities for ventilation permit satisfactory combustion of gas and proper venting under normal conditions. In buildings of conventionalframe,brickorstoneconstructionwithouttightstorm windows and doors, infiltration is normally adequate to provide for combustion and draft hood dilution.

Where appliances are installed in a confined space within a building,thebuildingbeingofunusuallytightconstruction,airfor combustionandventilationmustbeobtaineddirectlyfromoutdoors or from such spaces that freely communicate with the outdoors. Under these conditions, the confined space shall be provided with twopermanentopenings,onenearthetopoftheenclosureandone near the bottom; each opening shall have a free area of not less than one square inch (6.5cm2) per 1,000 BTU's (.3KW) of total input. The draft hood must be in the same atmospheric pressure

zone as the combustion air inlet to the appliance and shall be so located so that the relief opening is accessible for checking vent operation.

Liner and Insulated Liner

Whenyouinstallaventedfireplaceheaterintoamasonrychimney you must follow these steps.

1.The chimney must be lined and sized properly. Most masonry chimneys are over sized and absorb too much heat to be considered a proper vent. If you have any doubts line the chimney with the right size liner. If it's unlined you must line it.

2.Use an insulated liner when the chimney is on the outside, three sides exposed to the weather, and there is no clay liner in the chimney. The insulation will help keep the flue gases warmer.

Insulated Vent Enclosure (Figure 15)

Vented fireplace heaters installed with the vent going directly to the outside and above the eaves can cause poor venting. The cold pipe will have a delay in proper venting and cause the fireplace heater to shut "off" by the vent safety switch. To prevent delayed venting as well as condensation of flue products an insulated enclosure is recommended.

Use type B 4" (102mm) diameter vent pipe and maintain at least a one inch (25mm) clearance to combustibles.

Use metal thimble to protect vent pipe as it passes through combustibles
