Fireplace Installation

CHECK GAS TYPE

Use proper gas type for fireplace unit you are installing. If your gas supply is not correct, do not install fireplace. See retailer where you purchased fireplace for proper fireplace according to your gas type or to purchase gas conversion kit (see Accessories, page 37).

Installing optional blower accessory

NOTICE: If installing blower in an existing fireplace with gas connections, shut off gas supply and disconnect heater from gas supply. Contact a qualified service person to do this.

WARNING:Ifthereisaduplex electrical outlet installed in the right side of the bottom of the fireplace base area, be sure that theelectricalpowertotheoutletis turnedoffbeforeproceedingwith blower installation. Failure to do this may result in serious injury.

Model BK Installation

Follow all instructions provided in blower accessory kit.

1.Attach power cord to blower motor by firmly pushing two female terminals at end of power cord onto two spade terminals on blower motor (see Figure 26).

2.Attach green ground wire from power cord to blower housing using screw provided (see Figure 26). Tighten screws securely.

3.Place blower against lower rear wall of firebox outer wrapper with exhaust port directed upward. Blower will fit inside back opening and be held in position against back wall by magnets (see Figure 26).

4.Be certain that all wire terminals are securely attached to terminals on blower motor and that screw retaining green ground wire is tight.

5.Mount speed control box to switch bracket by placing plastic control shaft forward through opening in switch bracket (see Figure 27).

6.While supporting speed control, secure control shaft with lock nut by pushing and turning lock nut with pliers clockwise until it is tight against front panel. Place provided control knob on shaft.

7.Turn on power to duplex outlet if previously turned off per warning in column 2, page 17.

8.Plug in blower power cord.

a.If your firebox is installed as a freestanding unit with an accessory mantel, determine whether power cord will exit left side or right side of firebox. Route power cord through exit hole and plug power cord into a wall receptacle near firebox.

b.If your firebox installation is recessed and/or prewired, plug power cord into duplex outlet provided. Refer to your firebox owner’s manual for instructions on wiring duplex outlet.

CAUTION:Nevertouchblower wheel while in operation.

Model BKT Installation

Note: When installing BKT thermostatically controlled blower, you must first secure thermal switch bracket to blower if it has not already been factory installed.

1.Place green ground wire with ring terminal between bottom hole on thermal switch bracket and top ear hole on blower assembly. Insert Phillips screw into all three pieces and tighten securely (see Figure 29, page 19).

2.Connect wire harness and power cord terminals.Connectbluejumperwiretoblower motor terminal and right side terminal of thermal switch. Connect black wire to left side of thermal switch and white wire to other remaining blower motor terminal.

Note: The power cord outer insulation sleeve may have to be stripped slightly to allow enough wire length to reach and make all connections. DO NOT trim excessive length away. Enable just enough to make all connections securely.

3.Place blower against lower rear wall of firebox outer wrapper with exhaust port directed upward and thermodisc positioned up near fireplace bottom. Thermodisc must be oriented near fireplace bottom as shown in Figure 29, in order to sense temperature and properly operate. Blower will be held in position against back wall by magnets incorporated onto blower housing (see Figure 29).

4.Be certain that all wire terminals are securely attached to terminals on blower motor and thermal switch and that screw for thermodisc bracket and green ground wire is tight.

5.Mount speed control box against mounting plate provided in lower fireplace cavity by placing plastic control shaft forward through round hole (see Figure 27, page 18).

6.While supporting speed control, secure control shaft with lock nut by pushing and turning lock nut with pliers clockwise until it is tight against mounting plate. Place control knob provided on shaft (see Figure 27, page 18).

8.Turn on power to duplex outlet if previously turned off per warning in column 2, page 17.

9.Plug in blower power cord to duplex outlet.

10.Blower will only run when speed control knob is in the ON position and thermal switch senses temperature after fireplace begins to heat up. Blower speed can be adjusted by rotating control knob. To turn off, turn knob fully counterclockwise until it clicks off. If blower is ON and has been running with fireplace operating, blower will continue to run for a short time after fireplace has been turned off. As thermal switch cools down, blower shuts down automatically.

11.Peel off the backing paper and stick the supplied wiring diagram decal on the firebox bottom approximately 12" in front of the blower (see Figure 28, page 18).

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.
