Figure 1 - Direct Vent Fireplace

Product Features

These are a few facts that can help you understand and enjoy your direct vent fireplace:

The venting system may be routed to the outside of your home in several ways. It may 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.

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.

Your direct vent gas fireplace system

(fireplace and venting) is a balanced and sealed gas operating unit. It requires approximately 10-20minutes of operating time before the flame pattern stabilizes.

Pre-installation

Location and space requirements

Determine the safest and most efficient location for your direct vent fireplace. Make sure that rafters and wall studs are not in the way of the venting system. Choose a location where the heat output is not affected by drafts, air conditioning ducts, windows or doors. Figure 2 shows some common locations. Be aware of all restrictions and precautions before deciding the exact location for your fireplace and termination cap.

When deciding the location of your fireplace, follow these rules:

Do not connect this fireplace venting to a chimney flue serving a separate solid-fuelburning fireplace or appliance.

Due to high temperatures, do not locate this fireplace in high traffic areas, windy or drafty areas or near furniture or draperies.

Proper clearances must be maintained.

If your fireplace is to be installed directly on carpeting,vinyltileoranycombustiblematerial other than wood, it must be installed on a metal or wood panel extending the full width and depth of the fireplace (see Figure 3).

Your fireplace is designed to be used in zero clearance installations. Wall or framing material can be placed directly against any exterior surface on back, sides or top of your fireplace, except where standoff spacers are integrally attached. If standoff spacers are attached to your fireplace, these spacers can be placed directly against wall or framing material. See framing details, page 7.

When locating termination cap, it is important to observe the minimum clearances shown in Figure 7, page 8.

If recessing into a wall, you can avoid extra framingbypositioning yourfireplace against an already existing framing member.

Do not recess termination cap into a wall or siding.

You may paint the termination cap with 450º F (232º C) heat-resistantpaint to coordinate with the exterior finish.

There must not be any obstruction such as bushes, garden sheds, fences, decks or utility buildings within 24" from the front of the termination cap and the front of outside air vent.

Do not locate termination cap and outside air vent where excessive snow or ice build up may occur. Be sure to clear vent termination area after snow falls to prevent accidental blockage of venting system. When using snow blowers, do not direct snow towards vent termination area.

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 vent appliance 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.

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.

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:Donotsealtermination cap to vent pipe. Cap must be removable for vent inspection and maintenance.

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:Thisgasfireplace and vent assembly must be vented directly to the outside. TheventingsystemmustNEVER be attached to a chimney servingaseparatesolidfuelburning appliance. Each direct vent gas appliance must use a separate vent system. Do not use common vent systems.

WARNING: Vent pipe air space 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.

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.

1.Set fireplace in its desired location and determine the route your horizontal venting 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. Figures 14 and 15 on page 12 show different configurations for venting with horizontal termination that will help you 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 location of fireplace.

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

4.Carefully determine location where vent pipe assembly will penetrate outside wall. Center of hole should line up with center line of horizontal vent pipe. Mark wall for

an 11 1/2" x 111/2" square hole. Cut and frame square hole in exterior wall where vent will be terminated. If wall being pen-

5.Noncombustible Exterior Wall: Position

horizontal vent cap in center of the 8 1/2" round hole and attach to exterior wall with four wood screws provided. Before attaching vent cap to exterior wall, run a bead ofnon-hardeningmastic (pliable sealant) around outside edges to make a seal between it and outside wall.

Note: Four wood screws provided should be replaced with appropriate fasteners for stucco, brick, concrete or other types of sidings (see Figure 10).

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 the

center of 11 1/2" square hole and attach to exterior wall with provided wood screws

(see Figure 11). Siding standoff must sit flush against exterior fascia material.

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

Note: Vertical restrictormust 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 15, page 14) 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.

1.Cut a 11 1/2" square hole in ceiling using locating hole as a center point. Opening

should be framed to 11 1/2" x 111/2" inside dimensions, as shown in Figure 8 on page

9 using framing lumber the same size as ceiling joists. If area above ceiling is an insulated ceiling or an attic, nail firestop from top side. This prevents loose insulation from falling into required clearance space. If area above ceiling is a living space, install firestop below framed hole.

Firestop should be installed with no less than three nails per side (see Figure 15).

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 11).

3.Cut a hole in the roof using locating hole as a center point. (Cover any exposed

open vent pipes before cutting hole in roof.) The 11 1/2" 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 11.

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 15). Whenever possible, use 45° elbows instead of 90° elbows. The

45°elbowofferslessrestrictiontotheflow of flue gases.

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 15. There must be a 1" clearance from vent pipe to combustible materials.

6.Continue to add pipe sections until height of vent cap meets the minimum building code requirements described in Figure 7 on page 8.

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-draftingin high winds. Increasing vent height may solve this problem.

Fireplace Installation

CHECK GAS TYPE

Use proper gas type for the fireplace unit you are installing. If you have conflicting gas types, do not install fireplace. See retailer where you purchased the fireplace for proper fireplace according to your gas type.

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 fireplace 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

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 w.c. pressure. If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure, fireplace regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 18. 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"diameterorgreatertoallow proper gas volume to fireplace. If pipe is too small, 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 19, page 17).

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.

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

We recommend that you install a sediment trap/drip leg in supply line as shown in Figure 19. 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.

CONNECTING FIREPLACE TO GAS SUPPLY

Installation Items Needed

5/16" hex socket wrench or nut-driver

sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas, not provided)

1.Route flexible gas line (provided by installer) from equipment shutoff valve to fireplace. Route flexible gas supply line through one of the access holes on side of fireplace.

2.Attach flexible gas line from gas supply to control valve (see Figure 20).

If lighting appliance for the first time each season, it may take several attempts before supply gas can reach pilot and main burners.

If appliance will not stay lit after several attempts, follow instructions under To

Turn Off Gas To Appliance and call your service technician or gas supplier.

Inspecting Burners

Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame patterns often.

PILOT Assembly

The pilot assembly is factory preset for the proper flame. Alterations may have occurred during shipping and handling. The pilot is located on right hand side of burner.

The flame must envelope 1/4" of top of the ignitor/sensor and grounding stem.

If your pilot assembly does not meet these requirements:

Turn the adjustment screw marked PILOT clockwise to decrease or counterclockwise to increase the flame to proper size (see

Figure 33, page 23). Do not remove the adjustment screw.

see Troubleshooting, page 26

BURNER FLAME PATTERN

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 dangerous. Inspect flames after installation to ensure proper installation and performance.

Figure 36 shows a typical flame pattern.

If burner flame pattern differs from that described:

turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to

Appliance,page 23)

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 DOORS

WARNING: Handle glass door panels 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.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Continued

Glass must be cleaned periodically. During start-upit is normal for condensation to form on the inside of the glass causing lint, dust and other airborne particles to cling to the glass surface. During initialstart-upa slight film may form on the glass due to paint curing. The glass should be cleaned several times with anon-ammonia,nonabrasive household cleaner and warm water after the first two weeks of operation. Thereafter, clean the glass two or three times during each heating season, depending on the usage and circumstances present. Refer toRemoving/Replacing Glass Door, page 19 of this manual when removing glass door for cleaning.

WARNING: Only parts supplied by the manufacturer should be used when replacing broken or damaged glass door panels (seeReplacement Parts, page 36). Glass door panel are complete units. 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.

If glass has been broken, carefully remove glass door (see Removing/Replacing Glass Door, page 19). Vacuum all glass pieces with

a shop vac.

CAUTION: Do not vacuum if pieces are hot.

Use only 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 19 for instructions for replacing glass doors.

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

Pilot and burners

Remove 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.

Logs

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

Replace material periodically as needed.

See Replacement Parts, page 36.

Venting system

Conduct annual inspection of the 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.
