IMPORTANT: Read this owner’s manualcarefullyandcompletely before trying to assemble, operate or service this fireplace.

Improper use of this fireplace cancauseseriousinjuryordeath from burns, fire, explosions, electrical shock and carbon monoxide poisoning.

DANGER:Carbonmonoxide poisoning may lead to death!

This fireplace must be installed by a qualified (certified or licensed) service person. It has a sealed gas combustion chamber that uses a coaxial pipe (pipe within a pipe and having the same center) venting system. It brings in fresh air for combustion through the outer pipe and combustion gases are exhausted through the inner pipe. If the glass door assembly and venting pipe are not properly seated, connected and sealed, carbon monoxide leakage (spillage) can occur.

Product Features

These are a few facts that can help you understand and enjoy your direct-ventfireplace:

The venting system may be routed to the outsideofyourhomeinseveralways.Itmay vent through the roof (vertical) or it may vent to an outside/exterior wall (horizontal). The vent pipe installation is very important to allow for proper operation. You must follow the venting instructions very carefully for either vertical or horizontal applications.

This fireplace may be installed in any room of your house provided all local codes and these installation instructions are followed.

This fireplace does not require electricity to operate.

Only the blower requires electricity if installed. If you plan to install the blower at a later date, outlet must be wired at the bottom of the fireplace when framing.

Apiezo ignitor and ceramic electrode create sparks to ignite the pilot light. It does not require any matches, batteries or any other sources of ignition to light the pilot.

Each time you turn on your fireplace, you may notice some amount of condensation on the inside of the fireplace glass. This is normal and will disappear after 10-20minutes of operation.

Venting Installation

NOTICE: Read these instructionscompletelybeforeattempting installation.

These models are tested and approved for use with FMI PRODUCTS, LLC (direct-vent)pipe components and terminations.

The venting system must terminate on the outside of the structure and can not be attached to a chimney or flue system serving a separate solid fuel or gas burning appliance. A direct-ventappliance must have its own venting system. DO NOT common vent this appliance.

These models are approved to be vented either horizontally through an outside wall or vertically through a roof or chase enclosure using the following guidelines:

When venting system terminates horizontally on an outside wall, you may install a standoff if the termination cap is to be installed directly on a combustible finish such as vinyl, wood, stucco, etc.

Never run the vent downward as this may cause excessive temperatures which could cause a fire.

Vent pipe air space clearances to combustibles are 1" on all sides except on the horizontal sections, which requires 2" clearance from the top of the pipe. Where the termination cap penetrates a combustible wall, 1" air space clearance is required.

Snorkel terminations are required when minimum clearance to grade cannot be met (see Figure 16 on page 12).

Have fireplace and selected vent components on hand to help determine the exact measurements when elbowing or offsetting. Always use wall firestops when penetrating walls and firestops when penetrating ceilings or attic spaces.

If using a venting configuration of only horizontal venting with no vertical run, a 1/4" rise for every 12" of run toward the termination is required.

For installation of fireplace at elevations of 4000 feet or greater, pay special attention to venting requirement recommendations.

WARNING: Read all instructionscompletelyandthoroughly before attempting installation.

Failure to do so could result in seriousinjury,propertydamage or loss of life.

NOTICE:Failuretofollowtheseinstructions will void the warranty.

NOTICE: Do not seal vent cap to pipe. Cap must be removable for service.

Installation Precautions

Wear gloves and safety glasses for protection

Use extreme caution when using ladders or when on roof tops

Be aware of electrical wiring locations in walls and ceilings

The following actions will void the warranty on your venting system:

Installation of any damaged venting component

Unauthorizedmodificationoftheventingsystem (Do not cut or alter vent components)

Installation of any component part not manufactured or approved by FMI PRODUCTS, LLC

Installation other than as instructed by these instructions

WARNING: This gas fireplace andventassemblymustbevented directlytotheoutside.Theventing system must NEVER be attached to a chimney serving a separate solidfuelburningappliance.Each direct-ventgasappliancemustuseaseparateventsystem.Donotuse common vent systems.

WARNING:Ventpipeairspace clearances to combustibles are

1" on all sides except on the horizontal sections, which require 2" clearances from the top of the pipe. Where the termination cap penetrates a combustible wall, 1" air space clearance is required.

INSTALLATION PLANNING

There are two basic types of direct-ventinstallation:

Horizontal Termination

Vertical Termination

Horizontal Termination Installation

IMPORTANT: Horizontal square terminations require only inner portion of wall firestop. Horizontal installations using round termination require exterior portion of wall firestop available only in vent kit HTK (see Figure 14, page 11).

1.Set fireplace in its desired location and determinetherouteyourhorizontalventing will take. Do not secure fireplace until all venting has been installed. Some installations require sliding fireplace in and out of position to make final venting connections. Figures14through18onpages11through 13showdifferentconfigurationsforventing withhorizontalterminationthatwillhelpyou decide which application best suits your installation. Check to see if wall studs or roof rafters are in the path of your desired venting route. If they are, you may want to adjust the location of the fireplace.

5.Carefully determine location where vent pipe assembly will penetrate the outside wall.The center of hole should line up with center line of horizontal vent pipe. Mark wall for a 11 1/2" x 111/2" square hole. Cut and frame the square hole in exterior wall where vent will be terminated. If wall being penetrated is constructed of noncombustible material, such as masonry block or concrete, a 81/2" hole with zero clearance is acceptable (see Figure 9).

WARNING: Do not recess vent termination into any wall. This will cause a fire hazard.

Female Locking Lugs

Male

Slots

2.Direct vent pipe sections and components are designed with special twist-lockconnections.

Twist-LockProcedure:Female ends of pipes have locking lugs (indentations). These lugs will slide straight into matching slots on male ends of adjacent pipes. Push pipe sections together and twist one section clockwise approximately onequarter turn until sections are fully locked (see Figure 8). Note: Horizontal runs of vent must be supported every three feet. Use wall straps for this purpose.

3.Use a 45° elbow to connect venting system to fireplace flue collar. The elbow is designed to be twist-lockedonto flue collar as described in step 2.IMPORTANT: Do not attempt to alter configuration of elbow by cutting, twisting, bending, etc.

4.Assemble desired combination of pipe and elbows to fireplace flue collar. If there are long portions of venting run, preassembled pipe sections may be installed as subassemblies for convenience.

Venting Installation

Continued

6.Noncombustible Exterior Wall: Position horizontal vent cap in center of the 8 1/2" round hole and attach to exterior wall with fourscrews(seeFigure10). Note: The four wood screws provided should be replaced with appropriate fasteners for stucco, brick, concrete or other types of sidings. Before attaching vent cap to exterior wall, run a bead of non-hardening mastic (pliable sealant) around outside edges to make a seal between it and outside wall.

Combustible Exterior Wall: For vinyl siding, stucco or wood exteriors, a siding standoff may be installed between vent cap and exterior wall. Siding standoff prevents excessive heat from damaging siding materials. Siding material must be cut to accommodate standoff. Bolt vent cap to standoff. Apply non-hardening mastic around outside edge of standoff. Position standoff/cap assembly in center of the 11 1/2" square hole and attach to exterior wall with wood screws provided (see Figure 11). Siding standoff must sit flush against exterior fascia material.

7.Connecting Vent Cap with Horizontal Vent Pipe: Slide wall firestop over vent pipe before connecting horizontal run to vent cap (see Figure 12).

Carefully move fireplace, with vent assembly attached, toward wall and insert vent pipe into horizontal termination. The pipe overlap should be a minimum of 1 1/4" (see Figure 13, page 11).

installation for vertical termination

Note: Vertical restrictor must be installed in all vertical installations.

1.Determine route your vertical venting will take. If ceiling joists, roof rafters or other framing will obstruct venting system, consider an offset (see Figure 19) to avoid cutting load bearing members. Note: Pay special attention to these installation instructions for required clearances (air space) to combustibles when passing through ceilings, walls, roofs, enclosures, attic rafters, etc. Do not pack air spaces with insulation. Also note maximum vertical rise of venting system and any maximum horizontal offset limitations.

2.Set fireplace in desired location. Drop a plumb line down from ceiling to position of fireplace exit flue. Mark center point where vent will penetrate ceiling. Drill a small locating hole at this point.

Drop a plumb line from inside of roof to locating hole in ceiling. Mark center point where vent will penetrate roof. Drill a small locating hole at this point.

If area above ceiling is a living space, install firestop below framed hole.Firestopshouldbeinstalledwithnoless than 3 nails per side (see Figure 20).

2.Assemble desired lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to reach from fireplace flue up through firestop. Be sure all pipe and elbow connections are fully twistlocked (see Figure 8, page 9).

3.Cut a hole in roof using locating hole as a center point. (Cover any exposed open vent pipes before cutting hole in roof.)The

111/2" x 111/2" hole must be measured on the horizontal; actual length may be larger depending on pitch of roof. There must be a 1" clearance from vent pipe to combustible materials. Frame opening as shown in Figure 9, page 9.

4.Connect a section of pipe and extend up through hole.

Note: If an offset is needed to avoid obstructions, you must support vent pipe every 3 feet. Use wall straps for this purpose (see Figure 19). Whenever possible, use 45° elbows instead of 90° elbows. The

45°elbowofferslessrestrictiontotheflow of flue gases and intake air.

5.Place flashing over pipe section(s) extending through roof. Secure base of flashing to roof and framing with roofing nails. Be sure roofing material overlaps top edge of flashing as shown in Figure

6.Continue to add pipe sections until height of vent cap meets the minimum building code requirements described in Figure 7 on page 7. Note: You must increase vent height for steep roof pitches. Nearby trees, adjoining rooflines, steep pitched roofs and other similar factors may cause poor draft or down-drafting in high winds. Increasing vent height may solve this problem.

7.Twist-lockvent cap onto last section of vent pipe.

Note: If vent pipe passes through any occupied areas above first floor, including storage spaces and closets, you must enclose pipe. You may frame and sheetrock enclosure with standard construction material. Make sure and meet minimum allowable clearances to combustibles. Do not fill any required air spaces with insulation.

High Altitude Installation

Your FMI PRODUCTS, LLC direct-ventfireplace has been tested and approved for elevations from0-2000feet (USA).

Fireplaces for High Altitude (models ending in -HA)are for installation above 4000 feet only.These fireplaces are equipped with parts specific for higher altitudes.

When installing a non-highaltitude fireplace at an elevation above 2000 feet (in the USA), you may need to decrease the input rating by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Reduce input 4% for each 1000 feet above sea level. Check with your local gas company for proper orifice size identification.

IMPORTANT: For horizontal installations above 2,000 feet, it is recommended that a 12" extension pipe be added before

Installing Gas Piping to Fireplace Location

WARNING: A qualified service person must connect fireplace to gas supply. Follow all local codes.

CAUTION: For propane/LP units,neverconnectfireplacedirectly to the propane/LPsupply.

This heater requires an external regulator (not supplied). Install the external regulator between the fireplace and propane/LP supply.

WARNING: For natural gas, never connect heater to private(non-utility)gas wells.

This gas is commonly known as wellhead gas.

Installation Items Needed

Before installing fireplace, make sure you have the items listed below.

external regulator (supplied by installer)

piping (check local codes)

sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)

equipment shutoff valve *

test gauge connection *

sediment trap

tee joint

fireplace regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 31. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.

CAUTION: Use only new, black iron or steel pipe. Inter-nally-tinnedcopper tubing may be used in certain areas. Check your local codes. Use pipe of

1/2"insidediameterorgreaterto allow proper gas volume to fireplace.Ifpipeistoosmall,undue loss of volume will occur.

Installation must include an equipment shutoff valve, union and plugged 1/8" NPTtap. Locate NPT tap within reach for test gauge hook up. NPTtap must be upstream from fireplace (see Figure 32, page 21).

IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shutoff valve) in an accessible location. The main gas valve is for turning on or shutting off the gas to the appliance.

Check your building codes for any special requirements for locating equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.

Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT threads. This will prevent excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could result in clogged fireplace valves.

WARNING: Use pipe joint sealantthatisresistanttoliquid petroleum (LP) gas.

pipe wrench

approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if allowed by local codes)

* An equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge connection. Purchase the equipment shutoff valve from your retailer.

For propane/LP connection only, the installer must supply an external regulator. The external regulator will reduce incoming gas pressure. You must reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11" and 14" of water. If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure,

We recommend that you install a sediment trap/drip leg in supply line as shown in Figure 32. Locate sediment trap/drip leg where it is within reach for cleaning. Install in piping system between fuel supply and fireplace. Locate sediment trap/drip leg where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them from going into fireplace gas controls. If sediment trap/drip leg is not installed or is installed wrong, fireplace may not run properly.

This thermostat has been electronically calibrated at the factory and requires no adjustment or leveling.

Upon installation, thermostat must be allowed to stabilize at room temperature for a minimum of 30 minutes for proper operation.

To turn fireplace off, adjust thermostat to the lowest setting and turn gas control knob back to PILOT. The pilot will remain lit.

IMPORTANT: To turn pilot off, turn gas control knob on heater to the OFF position.

Operating optional blower accessory

Locate blower controls by opening lower louver panel on fireplace. Blower controls are located on the right side of switch bracket to the left just inside louver panel.

The BK manual blower and BKT thermostati- cally-controlledblower have an ON setting and an OFF setting. Blower will only run when the switch is in the ON position. In the OFF position, blower will not operate.

Note for BKT Only: If you are using BKT blower with optional thermostat (wall mounted or remote control) for the fireplace, your fireplace and blower will not turn on and off at the same time. Fireplace may run for several minutes before blower turns on. After heater modulates to the pilot position, blower will continue to run. Blower will shut off after firebox temperature decreases.

The blower helps distribute heated air from the fireplace. Periodically check louvers of firebox and remove any dust, dirt or other obstructions that will hinder the flow of air.

Inspecting Burners

Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame patterns often.

PILOT Assembly

The pilot assembly is factory preset for the proper flame height. Alterations may have occurred during shipping and handling. Call a qualified service person to readjust the pilot if necessary.

The height of the thermopile must be 3/8" to 1/2" above pilot flame as shown in Figure 55. The thermocouple must be at a height of about 1/8" above pilot flame. The flame from

pilot burner must extend beyond both the thermocouple and thermopile.

BURNER FLAME PATTERN

Figure 56 shows a typical flame pattern.

If burner flame pattern differs from that described:

turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 27)

see Troubleshooting, page 32

Burner flames will be steady, not lifting or floating. Flame patterns will be different from unit to unit and will vary depending on installation type and weather conditions.

If the vent configuration is installed incorrectly,

 

flames will lift or "ghost". This can be danger-

 

ous. Inspect flames after installation to ensure

Figure 56 - Typical Flame Pattern

proper installation and performance.

 

Cleaning and Maintenance

WARNING:Turnofffireplace

and let cool before cleaning.

CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burners and circulating air passageways of fireplace clean. Inspect these areas of fireplace before each use. Have fireplace inspected yearly by a qualified service person. Fireplace may need more frequent cleaning due to excessive lint from carpeting, bedding material, pet hair, etc.

GLASS DOOR

WARNING: Handle glass door panel with care. Do not strike, slam or otherwise abuse glass. Do not operate fireplace with the glass door unlatched, removed, cracked or broken.

WARNING: Do not use abrasive cleaners as this may damage glass. Use a nonabrasive household glass cleaner to clean glass. Do not clean glass when hot.

Glass must be cleaned periodically. During start up it is normal for condensation to form on the inside of glass causing lint, dust and other airborne particles to cling to glass surface. During initial start up a slight film may form on glass due to paint curing. Glass should be cleaned several times with a nonammonia, nonabrasive household cleaner and warm water after the first two weeks of operation.Afterwards, clean glass two or three times during each heating season, depending on the usage and circumstances present. Refer to Removing/Replacing Glass Door on page 24 of this manual when removing glass door for cleaning.

WARNING: Only parts suppliedbythemanufacturershould be used when replacing broken or damaged glass door panel

(see Replacement Parts, page 36). This glass door panel is a complete unit. No substitute materials may be used.

CAUTION: Wear gloves and safety glasses while handling or removing broken glass. Do not remove if glass is hot. Keep children and pets away from glass.

logs

If you remove logs for cleaning, refer to

Installing Logs, Lava Rock and Glowing Embers, page 25, to properly replace logs.

Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any carbon buildup on logs.

Replace log(s) if broken. See Replacement Parts on page 36.

If glass has been broken, carefully remove glass door (see Removing/Replacing Glass Door, page 23). Vacuum all glass pieces with a shop vac.

CAUTION: Do not vacuum if pieces are hot.

Use only the tempered glass door replacement intended for this fireplace (see Replacement Parts, page 36 for detail on ordering). No substitutions may be made. SeeRemoving/Replacing Glass Door, page 23 for instructions for replacing glass door.

WARNING: Do not operate fireplace with the glass door unlatched, removed, cracked or broken.

pilot and burners

Remove ember material before cleaning burners and replace when cleaning is complete.

Burner and controls should be cleaned with compressed air to remove dust, dirt or lint.

Use a vacuum cleaner or small, soft bristled brush to remove excess dust, dirt or lint.

Replace ember material periodically as needed. See Replacement Parts on page 36.

venting system

Conduct annual inspection of venting system following these guidelines:

1.Check areas of venting system that are exposed to the weather for corrosion (rust spots or streaks and, in extreme cases, holes). Have these items replaced immediately by a qualified service person.

2.Remove the vent cap and shine a flashlight into the vent. Remove any foreign material.

3.Check for evidence of excessive condensation. Continuous condensation can cause corrosion of caps, pipes and fittings and can be caused by having excessive lateral runs, too many elbows or exterior portions of the system being exposed to cold weather.

4.Inspect joints to verify that no pipe section or fitting has been disturbed and loosened. Check mechanical supports such as wall straps for rigidity.
