I. Control Module Operation

1.The control module has an ON/OFF/REMOTE selector switch that must be set. See Figure 2.1.

OFF Position: Appliance will ignore all power inputs and will not respond to any commands from a wall switch or remote. The unit should be in the OFF position during installation, service, battery installation, fuel conversion, and in the event that the control goes into LOCK-OUTmode as a result of an error code.

ON Position: Appliance will ignite and run continuously in the HI flame setting, with no adjustment in flame output. This mode of operation is primarily used for initial installation or power outage operation with battery backup.

REMOTE Position: Appliance will initiate commands from an optional wired wall switch and/or the wireless remote (RC300AU).

2.If using a wired wall switch with the module in REMOTE mode, the flame output can be adjusted with the HI/ LO selector switch on the module. See Figure 2.3. Note that the flame HI/LO selector switch will become inactive once an optional remote control (RC300AU) is programmed to the control module. Note that the control module will always ignite the fireplace on HI and remain so for the initial 10 seconds of operation. If the HI/LO is switched to the LO position, the flame output will automatically drop to the lowest setting after the flame has been established for 10 sec. After this 10 second period, the flame can be adjusted from HI to LO with the switch.

3.The control module has safety feature that automatically shuts down the fireplace after 9 hours of continuous operation without receiving a command from the RC300AU remote.

4.If you intend to use both an optional wired wall switch and the RC300AU remote control to operate your fireplace, the wall switch will override any commands given by the remote.

5.The module has the capability to recognize potential malfunctions. If these occur, it will fail to ignite and/ or respond to a command to ignite via the wall switch and/or remote. In this case, the module may have gone into LOCK-OUTmode. In this state, it will emit

a LED error code. To reset the error code, switch the selector to OFF, and then back to REMOTE or ON. If the ignition command again fails, the module will emit an LED error code, prior to going back into LOCK-OUTmode. Contact your dealer for service if this occurs.

Note: If the module is inLOCK-OUTmode, resetting the circuit breaker to the appliance will also reset the module.

7 Flue Information

A. Flue Components

These models are approved to use Hearth & Home Technologies series pipes, components and termination. Approved components are labeled for identification. This pipe is tested and listed as an approved component of

the stove.

DO NOT USE FIELD-FABRICATEDFLUE COMPONENTS. Refer to the flue manufacturer’s instructions.

This product is approved to be flued either horizontally, through the side wall or vertically through the roof. You may flue through a Class A or masonry chimney if an approved adapter is used.

This gas stove is a balanced flue gas stove. All combustion air must come directly from the outside of the building. The flue pipe for this unit consists of an inner and an outer pipe. The inner pipe carries the gas stove exhaust out of the system, and the outer pipe brings fresh combustion air into the gas stove.

A round support box/wall thimble or heat shieldis required when the flueing passes through a combustible wall.

A support box or ceiling firestopis required when the flueing passes through a combustible ceiling.

Roof flashing and a storm collar are required when flueing passes through the roof.

Follow instructions provided with the flueing for installation of these items.

WARNING

Fire Hazard.

Explosion Risk.

Asphyxiation Risk.

Do NOT connect this gas stove to a chimney flue serving a separate solid-fuelor gas burning gas stove.

Flue this gas stove directly outside.

Use separate flue system for this gas stove.

May impair safe operation of this gas stove or other gas stoves connected to the flue.

B. Use of Elbows

CAUTION

ALL flue configuration specifications MUST be followed.

This product is tested and listed to these specifications.

Appliance performance will suffer if specifications are not followed.

Diagonal runs have both vertical and horizontal flue aspects when calculating the effects. Use the rise for the vertical aspect and the run for the horizontal aspect (see Figure 7.1).

Two 45º elbows may be used in place of one 90º elbow. On 45º runs, 12 in. (305 mm) of diagonal is equal to 8-1/2in. (216 mm) horizontal run and8-1/2in. (216 mm) vertical run. A length of straight pipe is allowed between two 45º elbows (see Figure 7.1).

Step 2.

For installations using a round support box/wall thimble (check pipe manufacturer's instructions), mark the wall for a 9 in. x 9 in. (229 mm x 229 mm) square hole. The center of the square hole should line up with the center line of the horizontal pipe. Cut and frame the hole in the exterior wall where the flue will be terminated. If the wall being penetrated is constructed of noncombustible material, i.e. masonry block or concrete, a 7 in. (178 mm) diameter hole is acceptable.

Step 3.

Position the horizontal termination cap in the center of the 9 in. x 9 in. (229 mm x 229 mm) square hole and run a bead of non-hardeningmastic around its outside edges, to make a seal between it and the wall. Attach termination cap to the exterior wall with the four wood screws provided. The arrow on the flue cap should be pointing up.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN:

Review the flueing configurations in Figures A, B andC onthe next page.

CAUTION! Risk of Cuts, Abrasions or Flying Debris.

Wear protective gloves and safety glasses during installation. Sheet metal edges are sharp.

1. Assembling Slim Line Trim Ring and Heat Shield

Figure 7.15

Lay the trim ring on flat surface and bend up the six welded brackets into a 90 degree position. The brackets along the outer edge of the ring are for locating the ring in the center of the hole.

Figure 7.16

The heat shield is shipped flat and must be hand bent into a half circle before attaching it to the trim ring. Bend the heat shield as shown.

Figure 7.17

Attach the heat shield to the trim ring with the four screws provided. Screws go through the heat shield and into the brackets on the trim ring.

2. Installing Slim Line Trim Ring and Heat Shield

Measure from the floor to the center of the flue pipe. Cut out a 9-1/2in. (240 mm) hole in the wall. Hold the trim ring/heat shield assembly in place and put a mark on the shield with a black marker where it protrudes through the exterior wall.Figure A on the previous page.

Use that mark as a guide to trim off excess heat shield with a pair of sheet metal shears.

Figure 7.18

When installing the trim ring/heat shield assembly make sure the trim ring is centered in the hole and that the shield is above the pipe. There must be a minimum of 20 mm minimum clearance maintained to combustibles from the top of the heat shield.

Ensure that framing on the inside of the wall is a minimum inner framing diameter of 9 in. x 9 in. (229 mm x 229 mm).

The four trim ring mounting screws provided should be replaced with appropriate fasteners for stucco, brick, concrete, or other types of sidings.

Step 1.

Check the installation instructions for required 10 in. (254 mm) clearances (air space) to combustibles when passing through ceilings, walls, roofs, enclosures, attic rafters, or other nearby combustible surfaces. (See Figure 7.19). Check the instructions for maximum vertical rise of the flueing system, and any maximum horizontal offset limitations. All offsets must fall within the set parameters of the flueing diagrams located in Section 7.

NOTE: Maximum vertical rise allowable is 38 ft. (11.58 m)

Figure 7.20.

WARNING

Fire Risk. Explosion Risk.

Maintain flue clearance to combustibles as specified.

Do not pack air space with insulation or other materials.

Failure to keep insulation or other materials away from flue pipe may cause fire.

Figure 7.20

Step 2.

Set the gas stove in its desired location. Drop a plumb bob down from the ceiling to the position of the gas stove flue exit, and mark the location where the flue will penetrate the ceiling. Drill a small hole at this point. Next, drop a plumb bob from the roof to the hole previously drilled in the ceiling, and mark the spot where the flue will penetrate the roof. Determine if ceiling joists, roof rafters, or other framing will obstruct the flueing system. You may wish to relocate the gas stove, or to offset, as shown inFigure 7.21 to avoid cutting load bearing members.

Step 4.

Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to reach from the gas stove up through the round support box. Ensure that all pipe and elbow connections are in their fully twist-lockedposition. Assemble as instructed.

Step 5.

Cut a hole in the roof centered on the small drill hole placed in the roof in Step 2. The hole should be of sufficient size to meet the minimum requirements for clearance to combustibles, as specified. Continue to assemble lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to reach from the ceiling support box/wall thimble up through the roof line. Galvanized pipe and elbows may be utilized in the attic, as well as above the roofline. The galvanized finish is desirable above the roofline, due to its higher corrosion resistance (compared to black pipe).

NOTE:

(1) If an offset is necessary in the attic to avoid obstructions, it is important to support the flue pipe every 91.4cm to avoid excessive stress on the elbows, and possible separation. Wall straps are available for this purpose, Figure 7.10, page 15.

(2)Whenever possible, use 45° elbows, instead of 90° elbows. The 45° elbow offers less restriction to the flow of flue gases and intake air.

Step 6.

Slip the flashing over the pipe section(s) protruding through the roof. Secure the base of the flashing to the roof with roofing nails. Ensure the roofing material overlaps the top edge of the flashing as shown in Figure 7.23. Verify that the chimney is the required height above the roof. See roof pitch table,Figure 4.3.

SHINGLES OVERLAP ON

Step 7.

Continue to assemble pipe sections until the height of the flue (before adding the termination cap) meets the minimum local code requirements. Note that for steep roof pitches, the flue height must be increased. See Roof Pitch Table (Figure 4.3). In high wind conditions, nearby trees adjoining rooflines, steep pitched roofs, and other similar factors can result in poor draft, or down drafting. In these cases increasing the flue height or switching to the high wind termination cap may solve this problem.

Step 8.

Slip the storm collar over the pipe, and push it down to the top of the flashing (Figure 7.24). Usenon-hardeningsealant above and below the joint between the storm collar and the pipe.

B. Wall Penetration Framing

Combustible Wall Penetration

Whenever a combustible wall is penetrated, you must frame a hole for the wall shield firestop(s). The wall shield firestop maintains minimum clearances and prevents cold air infiltration.

The opening must be framed on all four sides using the same size framing materials as those used in the wall construction.

SLP pipe -Awallshield firestop must be placed on each side of an interior wall. A minimum1-1/2inch (38 mm) overlap of attached heat shields must be maintained.

See Section 10.H for information for regarding the installation of a horizontal termination cap.

Non-CombustibleWall Penetration

If the hole being penetrated is surrounded by noncombustible materials such as concrete, a hole with diameter one inch greater than the pipe is acceptable.

Whenever a non-combustiblewall is penetrated, the wall shield firestop is only required on one side and no heat shield is necessary.

Note: A 6 in. (152 mm) section of straight flue must be attached to the fireplace before a 90° elbow.

E. Control Module Operation

1.The control module has an ON/OFF/REMOTE selector switch that must be set. See Figure 12.4.

OFF Position: Appliance will ignore all power inputs and will not respond to any commands from a wall switch or remote. The unit should be in the OFF position during installation, service, battery installation, fuel conversion, and in the event that the control goes into LOCK-OUTmode as a result of an error code.

ON Position: Appliance will ignite and run continuously in the HI flame setting, with no adjustment in flame output. This mode of operation is primarily used for initial installation or power outage operation with battery backup.

REMOTE Position: Appliance will initiate commands from an optional wired wall switch and/or the wireless remote (RC300AU).

2.If using a wired wall switch with the module in REMOTE mode, the flame output can be adjusted with the HI/ LO selector switch on the module. See Figure 12.4. Note that the flame HI/LO selector switch will become inactive once an optional remote control (RC300AU) is programmed to the control module. Note that the control module will always ignite the fireplace on HI and remain so for the initial 10 seconds of operation. If the HI/LO is switched to the LO position, the flame output will automatically drop to the lowest setting after the flame has been established for 10 sec. After this 10 second period, the flame can be adjusted from HI to LO with the switch.

3.The control module has safety feature that automatically shuts down the fireplace after 9 hours of continuous operation without receiving a command from the RC300AU remote.

4.If you intend to use both an optional wired wall switch and the RC300AU remote control to operate your fireplace, the wall switch will override any commands given by the remote.

5.The module has the capability to recognize potential malfunctions. If these occur, it will fail to ignite and/ or respond to a command to ignite via the wall switch and/or remote. In this case, the module may have gone into LOCK-OUTmode. In this state, it will emit

a LED error code. To reset the error code, switch the selector to OFF, and then back to REMOTE or ON. If the ignition command again fails, the module will emit an LED error code, prior to going back into LOCK-OUTmode. Contact your dealer for service if this occurs.

Note: If the module is inLOCK-OUTmode, resetting the circuit breaker to the appliance will also reset the module.
