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 C22.1 Canadian Electric Code (in Canada).

These models (natural gas and propane) can be installed in a bedroom (in the United States) which has a total volume of unconfined space appropriate to the particular installation. Refer to the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA54 (current edition). The Uniform Mechanical Code - (current edition), and local Building Officials for the options allowed in obtaining an effective bedroom volume of unconfined space.

These models (natural gas and propane) can be installed in a bedroom (in Canada) if a thermostat (Model WH-STAT)is installed with the unit. Consult local code authorities. Detailed installation instructions for ModelWH-STATare included with the kit.

High Altitude Installations

U.L. Listed fireplaces are tested and approved for elevations from 0 to 2,000 feet in the U.S.A. and are tested and approved for elevations 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.

NOTE: DIMENSIONS SHOWN IN INCHES

Figure 3. Framing Dimensions

Negative Pressure warning: When negative pressure is present, an atmospherically vented fireplace (with a draft hood) may not function properly and it may down draft. In the case of a gas appliance, spillage of the combustion gases may occur. This may create a dangerous carbon monoxide situation in the house.

The causes of negative pressure to a house can include the following:

Stack effect in the building.

Exhaust only appliances (mechanically and atmospherically vented).

Inadequate make-upair (which is increasingly more prevalent in new construction).

It is recommended that all natural venting non-airtight gas fireplaces have outside air connected to them. It is also recommended that the building be mechanically or passively balanced to allow atmospherically vented appliances, such as top

vented gas fireplaces with draft hoods, to draft properly. If the home experiences negative pressure or is likely to experience negative pressure, connection to an outside air source is mandatory.

Installing Optional Outside Make-upAir:

This unit is equipped to accept outside air. By using outside make-upair, the amount of room air used for combustion will be reduced. It is recommended that anAK-TVair kit be used with this appliance.

WARNING: IN A NEGATIVE PRESSURE CONDITION (LIKELY TO OCCUR IN

NEW HOMES THAT DO NOT HAVE ADEQUATE MAKE-UPAIR) THE OUTSIDE AIR KIT MUST BE INSTALLED TO OBTAIN PROPER PERFORMANCE AND TO HELP PREVENT SPILLAGE OF COMBUSTION GASES.

A 4-inchside collar/damper (found inAK-TVKit) must be installed on the fireplace by attaching the side collar to the outer wrap of the fireplace at theright-handrear corner using sheetmetal screws. See Figure 4. Attach one end of a4-inchflexible air duct (not provided in theAK-TVKit) to the side collar and the other end of the duct to themake-upair termination cap. Use plastic tie straps to secure the ends of the flex duct to each collar.

Air Damper

Before lighting the burner, open the damper. Close the damper when the burner is off.

Detailed installation instructions for Model AK-TVOutside Air kit are found in the kit.

1.Apply non-combus-tible facing material to the fireplace surround.

Hearth Extensions

A hearth extension may be desirable for aesthetic reasons. However,ANSI or CAN/CGA testing standards do not require hearth extensions for gas

fireplace appliances.

The following diagram shows the minimum vertical and corresponding maximum horizontal dimensions of fireplace mantels or other combustible projections above the top front edge of the fireplace. See Figures 2 and 3 for other fireplace clearances.

Figure 13. Minimum Vertical & Maximum Horizontal Dimensions of Combustibles above Fireplace

WARNING: WHEN FINISHING THE FIREPLACE, NEVER OBSTRUCT OR

MODIFY THE AIR INLET/OUTLET GRILLES IN ANY MANNER.

IF JOINTS BETWEEN THE FINISHED WALLS AND THE FIREPLACE SURROUND (TOP AND SIDES) ARE SEALED, A 300° F. MINIMUM SEALANT MATERIAL MUST BE USED. THESE JOINTS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO BE SEALED. ONLY NON-COMBUSTIBLEMATERIAL (USING 300° F. MINIMUM ADHESIVE, IF NEEDED) CAN BE APPLIED AS FACING TO THE FIREPLACE SURROUND. SEE THE DIAGRAM BELOW.

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 noncombustible materials 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 installation 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 containing the Glowing Embers (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 the glass door from the unit.

Cover the top of the burner with a single layer of ember material. For best performance do not place embers on the ports on the rear of the burner.

Save the remaining ember materials for use during fireplace servicing.

Replace the glass door and a front trim door on the unit (see Replacement Parts Section of the manual.)

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

18

1.Lift the trim door up and out of the unit.

1.Place the ember material onto the top of the burner.

Step 12

Before Lighting

the Fireplace

NOTE:

Step 13

Lighting the

Fireplace

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

Remove all paperwork and documents 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.

The fireplace should be run for 8 hours on the initial start-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.

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.
