1Approvals and Codes

Appliance Certification

The Heat-N-Glofireplace models discussed in thisInstallers Guide have been tested to certification standards and listed by the applicable laboratories.

Certification

MODELS: 7000XLS, 6000XLSB

LABORATORY: Underwriters Laboratories

TYPE: Direct Vent Gas Fireplace Heaters

STANDARD: ANSI Z21.88•CSA2.33

High Altitude Installations

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.

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/CGA-B149Installation 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 CSAC22.1 Canadian Electric Code (in Canada).

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

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.

Step 3. Installing the Vent System

A. Vent System Approvals

These models are approved to use D-seriesdirect vent pipe components and terminations (see Figures 4 and 5). Approved vent system components are labeled for identification. This pipe is tested and listed as an approved component of the fireplace. The pipe is tested to be run inside an enclosed wall. There is no requirement for inspection openings at each joint within the wall. There is no required pitch for horizontal vent runs.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 flame and ember appearance may vary based on the type of fuel burned and the venting configuration used.

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.

NOTE: Two 45° elbows may be used in place of one 90° elbow. Rise to run ratios in the vent system must be followed if 45° elbows are used.

B. Installing Vent Components

The glass must be taken off again for positioning the logs when the unit is finally installed in place and finished around it. Re-installthe glass door. Attach vent system to the top starting collars.

1.Attach the First Vent Component to the Starting Collars

To attach the first vent component to the starting collars of the fireplace:

Apply a 3/8 inch (9.5mm) bead of stove cement around the 5 inch (127mm) fireplace starting collar.

Make sure that the fireplace rope gasket supplied with the fireplace seals between the first 8-5/8inch (219mm) vent component and the outer fireplace wrap.

Lock the vent components into place by sliding the concentric pipe sections with four (4) equally spaced interior beads into the fireplace collar or previously installed component end with four (4) equally spaced indented sections.

When the internal beads of each 8-5/8inch (219mm) outer pipe line up, rotate the pipe section clockwise aboutone-quarter(1/4) turn. The vent pipe is now locked together.

The first 90° elbow installed in the vent system of a rear venting fireplace MUST BE in a vertical position.

2. Continue Adding Vent Components

!WARNING: INSTALLATION OF THE 7000XLS FIREPLACE REQUIRES THE USE OF HEAT

SHIELD 570-290ABOVE THE FIRST 900 ELBOW IN THE VENTING SYSTEM THAT MAKES A TRANSITION FROM VERTICAL TO HORIZONTAL. (HEAT SHIELD NOT REQUIRED FOR 6000XLSB).

To Install the Heat Shield:

1.Determine if the heat shield is required. Do so by measuring the vertical distance between the top horizontal surface of the elbow to any combustible surface above. If the distance is more than 4 inches, the heat shield is NOT required. If it is 4 inches or less, the heat shieldIS REQUIRED. Install per the following steps. See Figure 11.

2.Fasten the shield in place using the four pilot holes provided in the part. The shield should be oriented such that the 13 1/8 inch dimension (longest dimension) is running in the same direction the elbow is pointing. The shield should be centered directly above the elbow, and positioned so that it creates a 1/2 inch airspace between the shield and the combustible surface. See Figure 12.

Continue adding vent components, locking each succeeding component into place.

Ensure that each succeeding vent component is securely fitted and locked into the preceding component in the vent system.

90° elbows may be installed and rotated to any point around the preceding component’s vertical axis. If an elbow does not end up in a locked position with the preceding component, attach with a minimum of two (2) sheet metal screws.

 

Figure 13. Adding Venting Components

 

3. Install Support Brackets

 

For Horizontal Runs - The vent system must be supported

 

every five (5) feet of horizontal run by a horizontal pipe support.

 

To install support brackets for horizontal runs:

 

• Place the pipe supports around the vent pipe.

Figure 11

• Nail the pipe supports to the framing members.

For Horizontal Runs - Firestops are REQUIREDon both sides of a combustible wall through which the vent passes.

NOTE: Model DVK-01TRDdoes not need an exterior firestop on an exterior combustible wall.

To install firestops for horizontal runs that pass through either interior or exterior walls:

Cut a 12-inchby12-inch(305mm X 305mm) hole through the wall.

NOTE: The center of the hole is one (1) inch (25.4mm) above the center of the horizontal vent pipe.

Position the firestops on both sides of the hole previously cut and secure the firestops with nails or screws.

The heat shields of the firestops MUST BE placed towards the top of the hole.

Continue the vent run through the firestops.

For Vertical Terminations - To locate the vent and install the vent sections:

Locate and mark the vent centerpoint on the underside of the roof, and drive a nail through the centerpoint.

Make the outline of the roof hole around the centerpoint nail.

The size of the roof hole framing dimensions depend on the pitch of the roof. There MUST BE a1-inch(25.4mm) clearance from the vertical vent pipe to combustible materials.

Mark the roof hole accordingly.

Cover the opening of the installed vent pipes.

Cut and frame the roof hole.

Use framing lumber the same size as the roof rafters and install the frame securely. Flashing anchored to the frame must withstand heavy winds.

Continue to install concentric vent sections up through the roof hole (for inside vent installations) or up past the roof line until you reach the appropriate distance above the roof (for outside terminations).

!WARNING: MAJOR U.S. BUILDING CODES SPECIFY MINIMUM CHIMNEY AND/OR

VENT HEIGHTABOVE THE ROOF TOP. THESE MINIMUM HEIGHTS ARE NECESSARY IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY. SEE THE FOLLOWING DIAGRAM FOR MINIMUM HEIGHTS, PROVIDED THE TERMINATION CAP IS AT LEAST TWO (2) FEET FROM A VERTICAL WALLAND 2-FEETBELOW A HORIZONTAL OVERHANG.

NOTE: This also pertains to vertical vent systems installed on the outside of the building.

To seal the roof hole, and to divert rain and snow from the vent system:

Attach a flashing to the roof using nails, and use a nonhardening mastic around the edges of the flashing base where it meets the roof.

Attach a storm collar over the flashing joint to form a water-tightseal. Placenon-hardeningmastic around the joint, between the storm collar and the vertical pipe.

Slide the termination cap over the end of the vent pipe and rotate the pipe clockwise 1/4 turn.

Step 4. Positioning, Leveling, and

Securing the Fireplace

The diagram below shows how to properly position, level, and secure the fireplace.

Figure 23. Proper Positioning, Leveling, and

Securing of a Fireplace

Place the fireplace into position.

Level the fireplace from side to side and from front to back.

Shim the fireplace with non-combustiblematerial, such as sheet metal, as necessary.

Secure the fireplace to the framing by nailing or screwing.

Step 5. The Gas Control System

!WARNING: THIS UNIT IS NOT FOR USE WITH SOLID FUEL.

The type of gas control system used with this model is Standing Pilot Ignition.

Standing Pilot Ignition System

This system includes millivolt control valve, standing pilot, thermopile/thermocouple flame sensor, and piezo ignitor.

!WARNING: 110-120VAC MUST NEVER BE CONNECTED TO A CONTROL VALVE IN A MILLIVOLT SYSTEM.

Step 6. The Gas Supply Line

NOTE: Have the gas supply line installed in accordance with local building codes by a qualified installer approved and/or licensed as required by the locality.

NOTE: Before the first firing of the fireplace, the gas supply line should be purged of any trapped air.

NOTE: Consult local building codes to properly size the gas supply line leading to the 1/2 inch (13 mm) hook-upat the unit.

This gas fireplace is designed to accept a 1/2 inch (13 mm) gas supply line. To install the gas supply line:

A listed (and State of Massachusetts approved) 1/2 inch (13mm) tee-handlemanualshut-offvalve and a listed flexible gas connector are connected to the 1/2 inch (13mm) inlet of the control valve.NOTE: If substituting for these components, please consult local codes for compliance.

Locate the gas line access hole in the outer casing of the fireplace.

The gas line may be run from either side of the fireplace provided the hole in the outer wrap does not exceed 2” in diameter and it does not penetrate the actual firebox.

Open the fireplace lower grille, insert the gas supply line through the gas line hole, and connect it to the shut-offvalve.

When attaching the pipe, support the control so that the lines are not bent or torn.

After the gas line installation is complete, use a soap solution to carefully check all gas connections for leaks.

!

WARNING: DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME

TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.

 

 

• Insert insulation from the outside of the fireplace and pack the insulation tightly to totally seal between the pipe and the outer casing.

• At the gas line access hole the gap between the supply piping and gas access hole can be plugged with noncombustible insulation to prevent cold air infiltration.

Step 10. Installing Trim, Logs,

and Ember Material

Installing the Trim

Combustible materials may be brought up to the specified clearances on the side and top front edges of the fireplace, but MUST NEVER overlap onto the front face. The joints between the finished wall and the fireplace top and sides can only be sealed with a 300° F. (149° C) minimum sealant.

!WARNING: WHEN FINISHING THE FIREPLACE, NEVER OBSTRUCT OR MODIFY THE AIR INLET/ OUTLET GRILLES IN ANY MANNER.

Install optional marble and brass trim surround kits as desired. Marble, brass, brick, tile, or other non-combustiblematerials can be used to cover up the gap between the sheet rock and the fireplace.

Do not obstruct or modify the air inlet/outlet grilles. When overlapping on both sides, leave enough space so that the bottom grille can be lowered and the trim door removed.

Positioning the Logs

If the gas logs have been factory installed they should not need to be positioned. If the logs have been packaged separately, refer to the instructions that accompany the logs. Save the log instructions with this manual.

If sooting occurs, the logs might need to be repositioned slightly to avoid excessive flame impingement.

Placing the Ember Material

Ember material is shipped with this gas fireplace. The bag labeled Glowing Ember (050-721)is standard glowing ember material.

To place the ember material:

Pull the four glass latches out of the groove on the glass frame. Remove glass door from the unit (see Figure 30).

Place dime size pieces of ember material about 1/2 inch apart near port holes in burner top. Do NOT press embers into burner ports. Cover the top of the burner with a single layer of ember material. For best performance do NOT place embers on the ports at the rear of the burner.

Save the remaining ember materials for use during fireplace servicing. The bag of embers provided is sufficient for 3 to 5 applications.

Replace the glass door and a front trim door on the unit.

Pull out and latch the glass clips into the groove on the glass frame.

Step 11. Before Lighting the Fireplace

Before lighting the fireplace, be sure to do the following:

Remove all paperwork from underneath the fireplace. Review safety warnings and cautions

Read the Safety and Warning Informationsection at the beginning of this Installers Guide.

Double-checkfor gas leaks

Before lighting the fireplace, double-checkthe unit for possible gas leaks.

Double-checkvent terminations and front grilles for obstructions.

Before lighting the fireplace, double-checkthe unit for possible obstructions that could be blocking the vent terminations or the front grilles.

Double-checkfor faulty components

Any component that is found to be faulty MUST BE replaced with an approved component. Tampering with the fireplace components isDANGEROUS and voids all warranties.

A small amount of air will be in the gas supply lines. When first lighting the fireplace, it will take a few minutes for the lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is complete, the fireplace will light and will operate normally.

NOTE: The fireplace should be run for 8 hours on the initialstart-up.This will help to cure the chemicals used in the paint and logs.

Subsequent lightings of the fireplace will not require this purging of air from the gas supply lines, unless the gas valve has been turned to the OFF position, in which case the air would have to be purged.

Step 12. Lighting the Fireplace

You’ve reviewed all safety warnings, you’ve checked the fireplace for gas leaks, you know the vent system is unobstructed, and you’ve checked for faulty components. Now you’re ready to light the fireplace.

!WARNING: PLEASE REFER TO THE USER’S MANUAL FOR ALL CAUTIONS, SAFETY, AND

WARNING INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE LIGHTING AND OPERATION OF THE FIREPLACE.

After the Installation

!LEAVE THIS INSTALLATION MANUAL WITH THE APPLIANCE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.

4Maintaining and Servicing Your Fireplace

Fireplace Maintenance

Although the frequency of your fireplace servicing and maintenance will depend on use and the type of installation, you should have a qualified service technician perform an appliance check-upat the beginning of each heating season. See the table below for specific guidelines regarding each fireplace maintenance task.

IMPORTANT: TURN OFF THE GAS BEFORE SERVICING YOUR FIREPLACE.

Replacing old ember material

Frequency: Once annually, during the checkup.By: Qualified service technician.

Task: Brush away loose ember material near the burner. Replace old ember material with newdime-sizeand shape pieces of Golden Ember(DE-93)and Glowing Ember (050721). New ember material should be placed alternately on top of the burner - a layer of Golden Ember, a layer of Glowing Ember, and so on. Save the remaining ember material and repeat this procedure at your next servicing. For more information, seePlacing Ember Material.

Cleaning Burner and Controls Frequency:Once annually. By:Qualified service technician.

Task: Brush or vacuum the control compartment, fireplace logs and burner areas surrounding the logs.

Checking Flame Patterns, Flame Height

Frequency: Periodically.

By: Qualified service technician/Home owner.

Task: Make a visual check of your fireplace’s flame patterns. Make sure the flames are steady - not lifting or floating. See Figure 32. The thermopile/thermocouple tips should be covered with flame. See Figure 24.

Checking Vent System

Frequency: Before initial use and at least annually thereafter, more frequently if possible.

By: Qualified service technician/Home owner.

Task: Inspect the external vent cap on a regular basis to ensure that no debris is interfering with the flow of air. Inspect entire vent system for proper function.

Cleaning Glass Door Frequency:As necessary By:Home owner.

Task: Clean as necessary, particularly after adding new ember (flame colorant) material. Film deposits on the inside of the glass door should be cleaned off using a household glass cleaner.NOTE: DO NOT handle or attempt to clean the door when it is hot and DO NOT use abrasive cleaners.
