Introduction

Models BBM-36(N,P)-TKA,BBM-42(N,P)-TKA andBBM-50(N,P)-TKAare vented gas appliances that use an electronic control valve and electronic ignition system. A FMI

PRODUCTS, LLC venting system and vent cap are not supplied but are required for proper operation If a B-typeventing system is installed, transition pipe modelBTC-Bis required. See venting instructions beginning on page 12.

WARNING: This gas appliance must not be connected to a chimney flue servicing a solid fuel burning appliance.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Before beginning the installation of your appliance, read these instructions through completely.

This FMI PRODUCTS, LLC appliance and its approved components are safe when installed according to this installation manual and are operated as recommended by FMI

PRODUCTS, LLC. Unless you use FMI

PRODUCTS, LLC approved components tested for this appliance, YOU MAY CAUSE

A FIRE HAZARD!

The FMI PRODUCTS, LLC warranty will be voided by and FMI PRODUCTS, LLC disclaims any responsibility for the following actions:

A)Modification of the appliance or any of the components.

B)Use of any component part not approved by FMI PRODUCTS, LLC in combination with this appliance.

C)Installation and/or operation in a manner other than instructed in this manual.

D)The burning of anything other than the

type of gas approved for use in this gas appliance.

The installation must conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the current National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI

Z223.1/NFPA 54.

WARNING: Installation of this appliance should be done by a qualified service person.

NOTICE: This appliance is not intendedtobeusedasaprimary source of heat.

CAUTION: Do not connect appliance before pressure testing gas piping. Damage to gas valve may result and an unsafe condition may be caused.

The appliance and it’s individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig

(3.5 kPa).

For the purpose of input adjustment two pressure taps (for IN and OUT pressures) are provided on the gas control valve for test gauge connections to the appliance.

Selecting Location

To determine the safest and most efficient location for your appliance, you must take into consideration the following guidelines:

1.The location must allow for proper clearances (see clearance information on page 10).

2.Consider a location where heat output would not be affected by drafts, air conditioning ducts, windows or doors.

3.A location that avoids the cutting of joists or roof rafters will make installation easier. Figure 1 shows a plan view of a few com-

mon locations.

Flush installations are recommended where living space is limited or at a premium and since the space required to enclose the appliance would be located beyond an outside wall, this would also reduce the cutting of joists, roof rafters and such. Check local codes for any restrictions.

Projected installations can extend any distance into the room. A projection may be ideal for a new addition on an existing, finished wall.

Corner installations make use of space that may not normally be used and provides a wider and more efficient range for radiant heat transference.

Internal wall installations provide a discreet option for room separation and can also be ideal as an addition to an existing wall.

WARNING: Do not pack requiredairspaceswithinsulation or other materials.

Framing

1.Frame opening for fireplace using dimensions shown in Figures 6 and 7.

2.If fireplace is to be installed directly on carpeting, tile (other than ceramic) or any combustible material other than wood flooring, fireplace must be installed upon a metal or wood panel extending full width and depth of fireplace.

3.Set fireplace directly in front of this opening and slide unit back until nailing flanges touch side framing.

4.Check level of the fireplace and shim with sheet metal if necessary.

5.Before securing fireplace to prepared framing, ember protector (provided) must be placed between hearth extension (not supplied) and under bottom front edge of fireplace to protect against glowing embers falling through. If fireplace is to be installed on a raised platform, a Z-typeember protector (not supplied) must be

fabricated to fit your required platform height. Ember protector should extend under fireplace a minimum of 1 1/2". Ember protector should be made of galvanized sheet metal (28 gauge minimum to prevent corrosion.
