SAFETY AND WARNING INFORMATION

READ andUNDERSTAND all instructions carefully before starting the installation.FAILURE TO FOLLOW these installation instructions may result in a possible fire hazard and will void the warranty.

Prior to the first firing of the fireplace, READ the Using Your Fireplace section of the

Owners Guide.

DO NOT USE this appliance if any part has been under water. ImmediatelyCALL a qualified service technician to inspect the unit and to replace any part of the control system and any gas control which has been underwater.

THIS UNIT IS NOT FOR USE WITH SOLID FUEL.

Installation and repair should be PERFORMED by a qualified service person. The appliance and venting system should beINSPECTED before initial use and at least annually by a professional service person. More frequent cleaning may be required due to excessive lint from carpeting, bedding material, etc. It isIMPERATIVE that the unit’s control compartment, burners, and circulating air passagewaysBE KEPT CLEAN to provide for adequate combustion and ventilation air.

Always KEEP the appliance clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and liquids.

NEVER OBSTRUCT the flow of combustion and ventilation air. Keep the front of the applianceCLEAR of all obstacles and materials for sevicing and proper operations.

Due to the high temperature, the appliance should be LOCATED out of traffic areas and away from furniture and draperies. Clothing or flammable materialSHOULD NOT BE PLACED on or near the appliance.

These units MUST use one of the vent systems described in the Installing the Fireplace section of theInstallers Guide.NO OTHER vent systems or componentsMAY BE USED.

This gas fireplace and vent assembly MUST be vented directly to the outside andMUST NEVER be attached to a chimney serving a separate solid fuel burning appliance. Each gas applianceMUST USE a separate vent system. Common vent systems are

PROHIBITED.

INSPECT the external vent cap on a regular basis to make sure that no debris is interfering with the air flow.

The glass door assembly MUST be in place and sealed, and the trim door assemblyMUST be in place on the fireplace before the unit can be placed into safe operation.

Installation Codes

The fireplace installation must conform to local codes. Before installing the fireplace, consult the local building code agency to ensure that you are in compliance with all applicable codes, including permits and inspections.

In the absence of local codes, the fireplace installation must conform to the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 (in the United States) or the CAN/CGAB149 Installation Codes (in Canada). The appliance must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes with the National Electric Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70 (in the United States), or to the CSA C22.1Canadian Electric Code (in Canada).

These models may be installed in a bedroom or bed-sittingroom in the U.S.A. and Canada.

High Altitude Installations

A.G.A./CGA Design Certified and U.L. Listed gas fireplaces are tested and approved for elevations from 0 to 2,000 feet in the U.S.A. and from 0 to 4,500 feet in Canada.

When installing this fireplace at an elevation above 2,000 feet (in the United States), it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Input should be reduced four percent (4%) for each 1,000 feet above sea level, unless the heating value of the gas has been reduced, in which case this general rule will not apply. To identify the proper orifice size, check with the local gas utility.

When installing this fireplace at an elevation between 2,000 and 4,500 feet (in Canada), the input rating must be reduced by ten percent (10%).

When installing this fireplace at an elevation above 4,500 feet (in Canada), check with local authorities.

Consult your local gas utility for assistance in determining the proper orifice for your location.

Introducing the

Heat-N-Glo

Gas Fireplaces

Pre-installation

Preparation

Heat-N-Glodirect vent gas fireplaces are designed to operate with all combustion air siphoned from outside of the building and all exhaust gases expelled to the outside.

The information contained in this Installers Guide, unless noted otherwise, applies to all models and gas control systems.

Gas fireplace diagrams, including the dimensions, are shown in this section.

This gas fireplace and its components are tested and safe when installed in accordance with this Installers Guide. Report to your dealer any parts damaged in shipment, particularly the condition of the glass.Do not install any unit with damaged, incomplete, or substitute parts.

The vent system components and trim doors are shipped in separate packages. The gas logs are factory installed (Model 6000GDVFL) and are packaged separately and must be field installed (Model 6000XLS). Read all of the instructions before starting the installation. Follow these instructions carefully during the installation to ensure maximum safety and benefit. Failure to follow these instructions will void the owner’s warranty and may present a fire hazard.

The Heat-N-GloFireplace Products, Inc. Warranty will be voided by, andHeat-N-GloFireplace Products, Inc. disclaims any responsibility for, the following actions:

Installation of any damaged fireplace or vent system component.

Modification of the fireplace or direct vent system.

Installation other than as instructed by Heat-N-GloFireplace Products, Inc.

Improper positioning of the gas logs or the glass door.

Installation and/or use of any component part not manufactured and approved by Heat-N-GloFireplace Products, Inc., not withstanding any independent testing laboratory or other party approval of such component part or accessory.

ANY SUCH ACTION MAY POSSIBLY CAUSE A FIRE HAZARD.

Getting

Started

2

When planning a fireplace installation, it’s necessary to determine:

Where the unit is to be installed.

The vent system configuration to be used.

Gas supply piping.

Electrical wiring.

Framing and finishing details.

Whether optional accessories—devicessuch as a fan, wall switch, or remotecontrol—aredesired.

If the fireplace is to be installed on carpeting or tile, or on any combustible material other than wood flooring, the fireplace should be installed on a metal or wood panel that extends the full width and depth of the fireplace.

Installing the

Vent System

A. Vent System Approvals

These appliances are approved to use D-seriesdirect vent pipe components and terminations. Approved vent system components are labeled for identification.

NO OTHER VENTING SYSTEMS OR COMPONENTS MAY BE USED. Detailed installation instructions are included with each vent termination kit and should be used in conjunction with this Installers Guide. The drawing below shows vent system components and terminations.

Identifying Vent Components

The vent systems installed on this gas fireplace may include one, two, or three 90° elbow assemblies. The relationships of vertical rise to horizontal run in vent configurations using 90° elbows MUST BE strictly adhered to. The rise to run relationships are shown in the venting drawings and tables. Refer to the diagrams on the next several pages.
