Installation

These inserts are designed for installations into solid fuel masonry or factory built noncombustible fi replaces that have been installed in accordance with the national, provincial, state or local building codes.

You should seal off the area between the termination cap and the top of the existing chimney opening to avoid down drafts, moisture and/or cold air problems.

Minimum fi replace opening requirements are shown in Figures 3.1 and 3.2 of this installation manual. The firebrick (refractory) can be removed from a factory built fi replace in order to gain minimum insert opening requirements.

This insert requires no hearth extensions. Combustible material on the floor may be installed up to the insert. Do not obstruct the lower grill of the insert. The original fi replace cannot be returned to solid fuel in this condition.

The metal fl oor of the solid fuel fi rebox may be removed to facilitate the installation of the insert. The side walls and top structure of the fi rebox may not be altered with the exception of removable baffl es and dampers. The original fi replace cannot be returned to solid fuel in this condition.

Position, Level and Secure Insert

Place the heater into position.

Level the heater from side to side and from front to back. If necessary, use the leveling bolts included in the manual bag. Screw the bolts into the nuts installed in the bottom of the insert (see replacement parts diagram). Turn bolts in until the insert is level.

Aretaining method may be needed to secure the heater in place.

Combustible facing material may be installed over the original combustible or noncombustible facing material on the solid fuel fi replace. The original specifi ed clearances of a factory-builtfireplace must be maintained, with the exception of the hearth. Clearances on a masonry fi replace must be maintained at 12 in. from the opening for combustible projections over1-1/2in. Clearances for combustible projections under1-1/2in. must be maintained perNFPA 211. Plan the surround size accordingly. A front face must be used with the insert.

The insert front face is tested and approved with this insert and may cover existing air circulation vents or grilles on the solid fuel fi replace it is installed into. Should the face not cover the entire ventilation grille surface, the grille should be left open.

The solid fuel fi replace’s fl ue damper must be fully locked in the closed position or removed for installation.

Note: Decorative trim front faces have been tested and approved to cover existing air circulation vents or grills.

The chimney must be capped.

Install the insert without the front face and make all electrical connections.

Note: The warning label above, located in the instruction package, must be affi xed to the lower back wall of the existing fi replace prior to installation of the insert.

Note: When the front is installed it will cover the gap between the heater and the framing, cabinet, finishing materials or existing fi replace.

Cleaning, performing maintenance or moving this electric heater without disconnecting power and allowing the heater to cool could create a shock or burn hazard.

Turn controls to “OFF”.

Remove plug from outlet or turn off the circuit breaker to the heater.

B. Clean the Firebox Compartment

Use the brush attachment and gently vacuum the compartment.

C. Clean the Back Acrylic Panel

The panel is cleaned in the factory during the assembly process. During shipment, installation, handling, etc., the surface may collect dust particles. These can be removed by buffi ng lightly with a clean dry cloth.

To remove fi ngerprints or other marks, the panel can be cleaned with a damp cloth using a mild soap and water solution. DO NOT USE GLASS CLEANER! IT WILL DAMAGE THE BACK ACRYLIC PANEL. The panel should be completely dried with a lint free cloth or paper towel.

D. Replace the Light Bulbs

The light bulbs need to be replaced when the fl ame and/or ember bed is dark on one side. Replace the bulbs with 75 watt halogen bulbs with mini-candelabra base. Do not exceed 75 watts per bulb. Light bulbs can be purchased at a local hardware or lighting store,on-lineor by phone. We recommend you use Sylvania model SL58884 or Satco model S3157.

Light bulb access is through the hearth assembly. See Figure 9.1.

Locate and lift the bent tabs holding the hearth assembly located at each end of the assembly.

Lift out the hearth assembly.

Carefully remove the burned out bulb from the light socket. Place the new bulb in the socket. See Figure 9.2. Follow directions on the light bulb package for handling requirements.

Reinstall the hearth assembly.
