Installation

selecting Fireplace location

To determine the safest and most efficient location for the fireplace, you must take into consideration the following guidelines:

1.The location must allow for proper clearances (see Figures 1 and 2).

2.Consider a location where the fireplace will 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.

4.An outside air kit is available with this fireplace (see Optional Outside Air Kit on page 5).

WARNING: Do not pack required air spaces with insulation or other materials.

Minimum/Maximum Chimney Height

The minimum height of the chimney, measured from the base of the fireplace to the flue gas outlet of the termination, is 16 feet for straight flue or a flue with one elbow set. The maximum distance between elbows is 6 feet.

For systems with two elbow sets, the minimum height is 22 feet. The maximum height of any system is 50 feet.This measurement includes the fireplace, chimney sections and the height of the termination assembly at the level of the flue gas outlet (see Figure 15, page 9).

Framing

1.Frame the opening for the fireplace using the dimensions shown in Figures 1 and 2.

2.If the fireplace is to be installed directly on carpeting, tile (other than ceramic) or any combustible material including wood flooring, the fireplace must be installed

on a hearth spacer designed for use with this fireplace (see Replacement and Accessory Parts, page 18).

3.Set the fireplace directly in front of this opening and slide the unit back until the nailing flanges touch the side framing.

4.Check the level of the fireplace and shim with sheet metal if necessary.

5.Beforesecuringfireplacetopreparedframing,theemberprotector(provided)mustbe placed between the hearth extension (not supplied) and under the bottom front edge of the fireplace to protect against glowing embers falling through. If the fireplace is to be installed on a raised platform, a Z- type ember protector (not supplied) must be fabricated to fit your required platform height.Theember protector shouldextend

underthefireplaceaminimumof1 1/2". The ember protector should be made of galvanized sheet metal (28 gauge minimum to prevent corrosion.

6.Using screws or nails, secure the fireplace to the framing through flanges located on the sides of the fireplace.

Hearth Extension

A hearth extension projecting a minimum of

20" in front of and a minimum of 12" beyond each side of the fireplace opening is required to protect combustible floor construction in front of the fireplace. Fabricate a hearth extension using a material which meets the following specifications: a layer of noncombustible, inorganic material having a thermal conductivity of K=0.84 BTU IN/FT, HR. F (or less) at 1" thick. For example, if the material selected has a K factor of 0.25, such as glass fiber, the following formula would apply:

0.25 x 1.0" = 0.30" thickness required

0.84

Thermal conductivity "K" of materials can be obtained from the manufacturer or supplier of the noncombustible material. If the hearth extension is to be covered, use noncombustible material such as tile, slate, brick, concrete, metal, glass, marble, stone, etc. Provide a means to prevent the hearth extension from shifting and seal gap between the fireplace frame and hearth extension with a noncombustible material (see Figure 3).

Mantels

A mantel may be installed if desired (see

Figure 4). Woodwork such as wood trims, mantels or any other combustible material projecting from the front face must not be placed within 12" of the fireplace opening. Combustible materials above 12" and projecting more than 1 1/2" from the fireplace must not be placed less than 15" from the top opening of the fireplace (NFPA STD 211, Sec.7-3.3.3).

Mantels or any other combustible material also may come up to the side edge of the black metal face of the fireplace just as long as the projection from the front face fall within the limit shown in Figure 4.

Assembly and installation of double wall chimney system

Each double wall chimney section consists of a galvanized outer pipe, a stainless steel inner flue pipe and a wire spacer. Pipe sections mustbeassembledindependentlyaschimney is installed. When connecting chimney directly to fireplace, inner flue pipe section must be installed first with lanced side up. Outer pipe section can then be installed over flue pipe section with hemmed end up. Press down on each pipe section until lances securely engage hem on fireplace starter. Wire will assure proper spacing between inner and

outer pipe sections.

WARNING: The opening in the collar around the chimney at the top of the fireplace must not be obstructed.Neveruseblowninsulation to fill the chimney enclosure.

Continue to assemble chimney sections as outlined above, making sure both inner and outer pipe sections are locked together. When installing double wall snap-lockchimney together, it is important to assure joint between chimney sections is locked. Check by pulling chimney upward after locking. Chimney will not come apart if properly locked. It is not necessary to add screws to keep chimney

together (exception, see Figure 9, page 8).

Grouting instructions

Material provided:

1 or 2 - 10 lb. bags of cement (depending on model)

1 or 2 - 10 lb. bags of sand (depending on model)

Material required:

1 - Piping bag

1 - Joints striker

1 - Heavy duty mixing bucket

1 - Trowel

1.Moisten brick surface with damp sponge or spray bottle just prior to application. When bricks are wet, any excess grout mixture on bricks will easily wipe off.

2.In a heavy duty mixing bucket, pour 4 ½ cups of water.Add 5 lbs. (half of a bag) of sand and 5 lbs (half of a bag) of cement. Mix together well using a power drill with mixing wand attachment to a yogurt like consistency. Not adding enough was can lead to grout falling out after burning.

3.The overall length of piping bag should be about 16". If the bag is longer than 16", cut it down to size by removing end with larger opening. This will make the bag easier to handle.

4.Put 2 to 3 cups of grout mixture into piping bag making sure the smaller opening is downward and over a moist towel to avoid spilling. Place a wet towel over the bucket making sure it is directly on the surface of grout mixture. This will keep the mixture moist and it will not dry out before use.

5.Begin grouting by first doing a “Filler

Pass”.This is done by filling the joint about

3/4 full with grout mixture. It is important to work with only 6 bricks at a time so grout doesn't have time to set up before striking.

6.Complete a “Finishing Pass” around 6 bricks you just put filler pass around. This is done by slowly filling in remainder of the joint with a thick amount of grout mixture. Mixture should be a little higher than the brick surface.

7.Using a trowel, remove excess grout mixture by moving trowel in the direction of the joint. Grout mixture in the joint should now be flush with brick surface. If not enough grout is applied into each space,

grout may fall out after burning.

8.Using a joint striker, force grout mixture into joint and sweep back and forth until grout is smooth and round. If grout becomes too shallow, add more grout mixture with piping bag and strike again.

9.Continue procedure around each group of 6 bricks until an entire panel is finished.

10.Using trowel, scrape in direction of joints to remove any grout that may have collected around bricks during striking. If desired, take a moist sponge and lightly sweep over bricks to remove any grout that may have gotten on bricks. DO NO PRESS HARD OR RUB INACIRCULAR

MOTION. This will press the grout into brick and turn brick a different color.

Allow72hoursbeforeoperating fireplace.

Operation and Maintenance

Glass Doors

Glass doors are optional with fireplace. When fireplace is in operation, doors must be fully opened or fully closed position only or a fire hazard may be created (see Figure 26).

A fireplace equipped with glass doors operates much differently than a fireplace with an open front. A fireplace with glass doors has a limited amount of air for combustion.

Excessive heat within the fireplace can result if toolargeafireisbuiltorifcombustionairgateis not completely open. The following tips should be followed to assure that both the fireplace and glass door retain their beauty and function properly. Both the flue damper and glass doors must be fully opened before starting fire.

This will provide sufficient combustion air and maintain safe temperatures in firebox.

Operation and maintenance

Continued

IMPORTANT: The glass must be allowed to warm slowly and evenly. Such materials as pitch/wax laden logs, very dry mill end lumber and large amounts of paper or cardboard boxes can create an excessively hot fire and should not be burned in this fireplace.Always keep the fire well back from the doors and never allow flames to contact the glass.

WARNING: Fireplaces equipped with glass doors should be operated only with doors fully opened or doors fully closed. Doors, if left partly open, may draw gas and flame out of the fireplace opening creating risks of both fire and smoke.

Cleaning Glass

Clean glass with any commercial glass cleaner or soap and water. Do not use any abrasive material to clean glass. Do not clean glass with any cool water if glass is still hot from the fire and smoke.

A gas line or gas log lighter may be installed for the purpose of installing a vented or ventfree decorative gas appliance incorporating an automatic shutoff device and complying with the Standard for Decorative Gas Appliances for

Installation in Vented Fireplaces, ANSI Z21.60 orAmerican GasAssociation draft requirements for Gas Fired Log Lighters for Wood Burning

Fireplaces, Draft NO. 4 dated August, 1993.

If you wish to install an unvented (vent-free)gas log set, only unvented gas log sets which have been found to comply with the standard for unvented room heaters,ANSI Z21.11.2 are to be installed in this fireplace.

damper handle operation

The damper handle opens and closes the damper blade and is located in the upper rear side of fireplace just above rear bricks. Rotate handle counterclockwise slightly to disengage from retaining bracket. Swing slowly toward opening of fireplace. Engage handle to secondary bracket located at front of fireplace inner wall (see Figure 27).

CAUTION: When operating damper door, please be aware of sharp edges and corners. Open and close damper door slowly to avoid injury.

WARNING: Risk of fire! Replace grate with FMI PRODUCTS, LLC model109496-01grate only. This grate has been designed to keep the operation of your fireplace safe and efficient.
