Improperly grounded outlets could cause electrical shock.

Always use properly grounded, fused and polarized outlets.

Always use ground fault protection where required by electrical code.

WARNING

Shock Risk

Fire Risk

Improperly protected power cords could cause electrical shock or fi re.

Do not pinch the cord or lay against a sharp object.

Do not cover the cord with carpeting, throw rugs or runners.

Secure and arrange cord to avoid a tripping hazard.

Do not coil cord.

A. As a Fireplace

Select a suitable location that is not susceptible to moisture and is away from drapes, furniture and high traffic areas.

Note: Follow all national and local electrical codes.

Wall Cabinet Kit, Corner Cabinet Kit or Custom Cabinet Installation

The Cabinet must provide access to the wall outlet.

For ease of electrical hookup, you may wish to install the heater near an existing outlet. A 15 amp, 120 volt circuit is required. A dedicated circuit is preferred but not essential in all cases. A dedicated circuit will be required if, after installation, the circuit trips or fuse blows on a regular basis while the heater is operating. Additional heaters on the same circuit may exceed the current rating of the circuit breaker.

If using a wall cabinet or corner cabinet, refer to the installation instructions supplied with the kit. For custom cabinets, frame and construct with the opening and depth dimensions listed in Figures 3.1 and 3.2.

Before plugging the heater into the wall outlet, make sure all control switches are in the “OFF” position.

• Before finishing the cabinet, the heater must be set into the cabinet and the power cord routed to the electrical outlet. If the power cord does not reach the outlet, a No. 16-AWGminimum wire size extension cord rated for a minimum of 1875 watts may be used. Use minimum length and do not coil cord.

To complete the heater installation, refer to Section 5.

Non-Cabinetor Chase Installation

Follow recommended framing dimensions in Figures 3.1 and 3.2.

Set the heater into the framed opening. Secure the heater in place using the nailing fl anges on both sides of the heater and nail to the framing.

To fi nish out the heater, follow the instructions found in Section 6.

To complete heater installation, see Section 5.

B. As an Insert

Pre-installationPreparation

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

WARNING

Fire Risk

Do not install or operate damaged heater.

Do not modify heater.

Installation other than as instructed by Hearth & Home Technologies Inc. is strictly prohibited.

Do not operate the heater without fully assembling all components.

Installation and/or use of any component part not approved by Hearth & Home Technologies.

Hearth & Home Technologies disclaims any responsibility for, and the warranty and agency listing will be voided by the above actions.

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.
