WARNING: Installation of this appliance should be done by a qualified service person well trained in the installation of such appliances. You will alsoneedabuildingpermitfrom your local Building and Safety

Commissioner before installing this appliance; otherwise your insurance company may not cover this appliance.

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 Clearances, page 7).

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 common 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.

Venting Installation

AB-typeventing system must be connected to appliance for venting to outside of building.

The following section is provided as a guide to a standard B-typevent installation.

Standing codes requirements concerning B- type vent installations may vary within your state, province or local codes jurisdiction. Therefore, it is recommended that you check

with your local building codes for specific requirements or in absence of local codes, follow Section 7.0 of the current National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.

This gas appliance must be vented to the outdoors only and may not be terminated into an attic space or into a chimney flue servicing a solid fuel burning appliance.

108794-01G

Venting INSTALLATION

Continued

This appliance may be vented through a manufactured chimney system or a masonry chimney using a B-ventadapter or a chimney liner system if all are listed, inspected and approved by local codes and/or building authorities.

The examples shown in Figure 9 are typical of most B-ventinstallations and codes practices.

Example 1: Shows the minimum allowable system height and lateral offset for a 60° or greater inclination. Code specifies that offsets at 60° or greater are considered horizontal and must follow the 75% rule for lateral to total vertical system height. Codes also allows only one offset in the total system when at 60° or greater. The total vertical height in this example represents the minimum height of 8 feet and therefore the allowable lateral is 6 feet when the 75% rule applies. If the lateral length must exceed 75% then the system must be sized in accordance with the Category I venting tables.

Example 2: Shows a multiple offset each at

45° of inclination. Multiple offsets are permitted if they do not exceed 45° of inclination.The total lengths of the two offsets are not required to meet the 75% allowable rule.

Example 3: Shows a single offset at 45° of inclination and therefore the lateral length at

10 feet of offset does not have to meet the

75% rule.

In each case the offsets must be supported and firestops must be positioned wherever the vent must pass through a sub-floor,ceiling joist or an attic overhang. The vent pipe must terminate vertically into a listed type vent cap and extend a sufficient height through an approved roof flashing, roof jack or a roof thimble. At all points the listed clearances must be maintained.

Vent terminations must be located in accordance with height and proximity rules of NFPA No. 54. These rules apply to vents at

12" diameter or less and require a minimum height in accordance with the roof pitch and a minimum of 8 feet distance from a vertical wall or obstruction (see Figure 10, page 10).

If venting horizontally through a side wall becomes necessary, a listed thimble approved for use with B-typevent must be used. Check with your local codes before venting through a side wall.

Some codes areas allow the use of existing B- type vent systems if the system is at or above the recommended diameter of the flue.

The flue connection must be made using listed B-typeconnectors and the existing system must be code inspected for damage and proper installation.

CHECKING FOR PROPER VENTING

After completing and checking electrical, gas and vent connections, follow lighting instructions and allow main burner to run for approximately 5 minutes. Hold a lighted match or cigarette near top edge of fireplace opening and play it along entire length of the opening (see Figure 12). Proper venting should tend to draw the flame or smoke into the appliance. Improper venting or escaping of spillage of burned gas, is indicated when the match flickers or goes out. Smoke from a cigarette will also tend to disperse away from the appliance.

If the appliance is found to be improperly venting, shut it off and notify your installer or a qualified service agency to inspect the venting system.

NOTICE: This appliance is equipped with a vent safety shutoff switch which will shut down the appliance in the case of a venting problem. Do not bypasstheventsafetyswitch.If theapplianceshouldshutdown, contactaqualifiedinstaller,service agency or your gas supplier tohavetheventinspectedbefore operating.

Check this area along entire topedge of fireplace

opening. Smoke

or flame should be drawn into

The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual equipment shutoff valve during any pressure testingofgassupplypipingsystemattestpressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

An equipment 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.

In conformance with local codes, route a

1/2" NPT gas line towards the appliance coming in from any of the 3 directions shown in Figure 16.

CAUTION: Do not kink flexible gas line.

FMI PRODUCTS, LLC recommends that a black iron gas line be routed from the gas source, through a sediment trap (shown in

Figure 17, page 13) and into appliance. Once connected through appliance, a flexible gas line may be used for ease of installation to gas control valve (see Figure 18, page 13).

Before connecting black iron gas line to inside of appliance a sediment trap must be included outside appliance between gas line and gas shutoff valve. It must extend down 3" beyond center of pipe. Prepare incoming black iron gas line with teflon tape or pipe joint compound (Check with local building codes).

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.

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.

Donotuseanopenflameforleak testing and do not operate any appliance if a leak is detected.

Complete your gas installation by connecting incoming gas line with flexible gas line.

Secure tightly with wrench but DO NOT

OVERTIGHTEN.
