DANGER:Carbonmonoxide

poisoning may lead to death!

This fireplace is a vented product. This fireplace willnot produceany gas leakage into yourhomeif properly installed.This fireplace must be properly installedbyaqualifiedserviceperson.Ifthisunitis notproperlyinstalledbyaqualifiedserviceperson, gas leakage can occur.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning resemble the flu, with headaches, dizziness or nausea. If you have these signs, the fireplace may not have been installed properly. Get fresh air at once! Have fireplace inspected and serviced by a qualified service person. Some people are more affected by carbon monoxide than others. These include pregnant women, people with heart or lung disease or anemia, those under the influence of alcohol and those at high altitudes.

Propane/LP gas and natural gas are both odorless. An odor-makingagent is added to each of these gases. The odor helps you detect a gas leak. However, the odor added to these gases can fade. Gas may be present even though no odor exists.

Introduction

Models (V)GL36ST/P and (V)GL36STE/EP are decorative gas appliances that use a millivolt gas control and piezo pilot or an electronic gas control valve with an electronic ignition system respectively. These systems require a 6", B-typeventing system for operation.

The 6" B-typevent is not supplied by FMI PRODUCTS,LLC . For installation guidelines, check yourB-ventinstructions.

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

Models(V)GL36STand(V)GL36STEaresmooth face units for natural gas only. The (V)GL36STP and (V)GL36STEP are smooth face units for propane/LP gas only. To determine which type of gas your unit is approved and tested for, check the rating plate on the lift-outplate located inside the firebox under the access panel.

Optional Outside air Kit (Model ak-4)

The installation of an outside air kit should be completed during the rough framing of the fireplace due to the nature of it's location. Outside combustion air is accessed through a vented crawl space.

CAUTION: Air inlet ducts must not be terminated in an attic space.

Avoidinstallingoutsideaireyebrowinareaswhere inlet opening may be blocked by snow, bushes or other obstacles (see Figure 10).

The maximum height for the air inlet termination cannot exceed 3 feet below the B-venttermination exhaust height.

CAUTION: Do not connect this millivolt system wall switch to a regular 120v power source! Gas valve will be damaged beyond repair.

Wall Switch Installation

1.Remove the J-boxcover plate from side of appliance’s outer surround.

2.Usingthe18ga.millivoltwireandwallswitch (both supplied), connect wiring per wiring diagram (see Figure 11). For more detail, see

Wiring Diagrams on page 16.

Note: If any of the original 10 feet supplied wire must be replaced, use Thermostat Millivolt Wire 18 AWG TypeCL2-105C or equivalent only.

IMPORTANT: Do not hook up to standard 120 VAC household wiring.

GAS SUPPLY TESTING

Note: This section is intended as a guide for qualified technicians installing gas to this appliance.

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 its individual shut-offvalve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping systemduringanypressuretestingofthatsystemat 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 shut-offvalve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

This unit has been tested for installation at high altitude. Higher altitudes affect the atmospheric pressure and heat valve of gaseous fuels. When installing this unit at high altitudes, the rated input will be lower than at sea level. The lowered oxygen content in the air and the lowered gas density require installation of a different size orifice in order to achieve clean combustion of the unit. Consult the unit data plate for the proper high-altitudeorifice size. Fill out the information sticker attached to the unit when field converting. SeeSpecifications, page 15, when derating.

GAS LINE HOOK-UP

WARNING: Gas line hookup should be done by your gas supplier or a qualified service person.

WARNING: Before you proceed,makesureyourgassupply is OFF.

A manual shutoff valve has been included in the appliance’s gas supply system. You may consider installing an extra gas shutoff valve outside the appliance’s enclosure (check with local codes) where it can be accessed more conveniently with a key through a wall as shown in Figure 15, page 10.

To install:

1.Remove gas line cover plate from appliance’s outer surround at the location to be used.

2.Remove insulation from inside the gas line conduit sleeve.

3.Run gas line through sleeve.

4.Prepare incoming black iron gas line with Teflon tape or pipe joint compound. (Check local codes as to the use of Teflon tape.)

CAUTION:Compoundsused on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant to the action of Liquefied Petroleum (LP or propane) and should be applied lightly to ensure excess sealant does not enter the gas line.

5.Connectincominggaslinetoregulator.Secure all joints tightly with wrench, but do not over tighten. If a flexible gas line is used, take care not to kink the connector.

6.Re-packinsulation in and around the conduit sleeve and flexible gas line.

WARNING: All gas piping andconnectionsmustbetested for leaks after the installation is completed.

After ensuring that the gas valve is on, apply a commercial leak detection solution to all connections and joints. If bubbles appear, leaks can be detected and corrected.

Pilot Assembly Adjustment

The pilot assembly is factory preset for the proper flame height. Alteration to factory settings may have occurred during shipping. If this is the case, some minor readjustments may be necessary and should be done by a qualified technician.

The pilot assembly is located behind the burner next to the rear refractory piece at the right-handside. The thermopile (in millivolt models) or the sensor (in electronic models) should be engulfed with the pilot flame approximately 3/8" to 1/2" in orderfortheregulatortoreceivepropersignal(see Figures 18 and 19).

Installing Glass Door

1.Be sure top spring clip hole is aligned with hole in fireplace frame (see Figure 21). Fit glass door top pin into aligned holes.

2.Swing inner end of bottom clip out away from fireplace frame. Fit door bottom pin into clip. Push clip into frame until bottom door pin slips into hole in frame.

3.Check door alignment. If doors do not align with each other, use top spring clip to align.

a.Use Phillips screwdriver to loosen screw that holds top spring clip in place.

b.Push spring clip left or right in its alignment slot until door is at proper angle (aligned with opposing door). Moving spring clip to the LEFT (your left as you face the fireplace) moves glass door’s top, inner corner UP; moving spring clip to the RIGHT moves glass door’s top, inner corner DOWN.

c.When door alignment is satisfactory, use Phillips screwdriver to retighten spring clip screw.

WARNING: When fireplace is in operation, both sets of cabinetdoorsoneachsideofthe fireplace must be either FULLY OPEN or FULLYCLOSED. If not, a fire hazard may be created.

Only doors certified with this appliance may be used. When operating doors, do not slam or abuse them. Always keep area below bottom edge of doors clear of obstacles or debris. Do not operate this appliance if glass doors are broken or damaged. See Figure 22.
