C. High Altitude Installations

U.L. Listed gas appliances are tested and approved without requiring changes for elevations from 0 to 2000 feet in the U.S.A. and Canada.

When installing this appliance at an elevation above 2000 ft, it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Input rate should be reduced by 4% for each 1000 ft above a 2000 ft elevation in the U.S.A., or 10% for elevations between 2000 and 4500 ft in Canada. If the heating value of the gas has been reduced, these rules do not apply. To identify the proper orifice size, check with the local gas utility.

If installing this appliance at an elevation above 4500 ft (in Canada), check with local authorities.

D. High Altitude Installations

U.L. listed gas appliances are tested and approved without requiring changes for elevations from 0 to 2000 ft in the USA and Canada.

When installing this appliance at an elevation above 2000 ft, it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Input rate should be reduced by 4% for each 1000 ft above a 2000 ft elevation in the U.S.A., or 10% for elevations between 2000 and 4500 ft in Canada. If the heating value of the gas has been reduced, these rules do not apply. To identify the proper orifice size, check with the local gas utility.

If installing this appliance at an elevation above 4500 ft (in Canada), check with local authorities.

E. LP Gas Supply

The pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with LP models must be used. Replacement pressure regulators and hose assemblies must be those specified in this manual.

The LP gas supply cylinder used with LP models must be constructed and marked in accordance with the specifications for LP gas cylinders of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

Cylinders must be stored outdoors in a well ventilated area out of the reach of children. Disconnected cylinders must have threaded valve plugs tightly installed and must not be stored in a building, garage or any other enclosed area.

Storage of this appliance indoors is permissible only if it has been disconnected from its fuel supply (natural gas line or LP gas cylinder).

The LP gas cylinder supply system must be arranged for vapor withdrawal.

The LP gas cylinder used must include a collar to protect the cylinder valve.

When an LP model is not in use, the LP gas must be turned off at the supply cylinder.

5 Finishing

This decorative gas log set must be used in the Mesa Decorative Surround.

6 Appliance Setup

A. Burner Assembly

All Models

Remove the burner assembly and check for damage. Do not use damaged components.

Position the burner assembly in the desired location. This location must be adjacent to the gas supply line. You must have easy access to the gas valve control knob after it is installed and connected to the gas supply because the ON/OFF gas valve is used to turn the burner on and off.

Natural Gas Models

Connect the ON/OFF gas valve of the appliance to the incoming gas supply line. See Figure 6.1. Make certain all gas connections are tight.

Turn the ON/OFF valve at the appliance slowly to the “ON” position. All connections must be tightened and checked for leaks with a commercially available, non-corrosiveleak check solution. Be sure to rinse off the solution when done leak testing.

Make sure the tank valve is turned completely off (clockwise).

Ensure the tank valve has the proper external mating threads (tank valve marked “USE WITH TYPE 1”).

Inspect the hose shipped with the appliance for any damage. Do not use if there is evidence of damage.

Connect the end of the hose onto the ON/OFF gas valve of the appliance. Make sure it is secured tightly.

Connect the regulator assembly to the tank valve. Hand tighten only (clockwise). Do not use a wrench to tighten! Use of a wrench may damage the quick closing nut and result in a hazardous condition. See Figure 6.2.

Position the hose out of pathways where people might trip over it or in areas where the hose might be subject to accidental damage.

Open the tank valve fully (counterclockwise). Turn the ON/ OFF valve slowly to the “ON” position. All connections must be tightened and checked for leaks with a commercially available, non-corrosiveleak check solution. Be sure to rinse off the solution when done leak testing. If a leak is found, turn the tank valve off and do not use the appliance until repairs can be made.
