Installation

Requirements

Location

In selecting the location, the aesthetic and functional use of the appliance are primary concerns. However, proper venting systems and access to the fuel supply are also important issues. Due to the high surface temperatures, you must also consider the proximity of traffic areas, furniture, draperies, etc.

This appliance may be located on or near conventional construction materials. HOWEVER, always maintain the proper clearances to combustibles, as this provides adequate ventilation air around the appliance.

The following clearances and hearth requirements are the minimum requirements when installing the Firelight gas stove near or on combustible surfaces. Always provide adequate access around the appliance for servicing and proper operation.

A combustible surface is anything that can burn (i.e. sheet rock, wall paper, wood, fabrics etc.). These surfaces are not limited to those that are visible and also include materials that are behind non-combus-tibles.

If you are not sure of the combustible nature of a material, consult your local fire officials. Remember, “Fire Resistant” materials are considered combustible: they are difficult to ignite, but will burn. Also, “fire-rated”sheet rock is considered combustible.

Hearth Requirements

The Firelight gas stove CANNOT be installed directly on carpeting, vinyl, linoleum or Pergo®.

If it is desired to install this appliance on any combustible material OTHER THAN WOOD, a floor pad must be installed that is either metal, wood or a listed hearth pad. This floor protection must extend the full width and depth of the appliance. It is not necessary to remove the carpeting, vinyl or linoleum from underneath the floor protection. See Fig. 1.

Vent Requirements

There are three types of venting configurations approved for use with the Firelight gas stove:

Vertical Termination

Hearthmount Co-Linear(Vertical Termination)

Horizontal Termination

The GF600 Firelight is approved for use with the vent systems listed below. Use parts of one manufacturer only - DO NOT MIX VENT COMPONENTS FROM DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS IN THE SAME SYSTEM.

Simpson Dura-VentGS

Amerivent Corporation

Security Vent Ltd.

Selkirk Metalbestos

Installation of any components not manufactured or approved by Jøtul or failure to meet all clearance requirements will void all warranties and could result in property damage or bodily injury.

The approved vent configurations described in this manual are derived from extensive testing under controlled laboratory conditions. Gas appliance performance can be negatively affected by variables present in the installation environment, i.e: atmospheric pressure, strong prevailing winds, adjacent structures and trees, snow accumulation, etc. These conditions should be taken into consideration by the installer and stove owner when planning the vent system design.

IMPORTANT

JOINT SEALING REQUIREMENT:

Apply a 1/8” bead of hightemperature (750°F) sealant to the male section of the inner vent pipe. See Fig. 9. The cement should form a seal

between the inner and

SEALANT

outer pipes.

NEVER modify any venting component or use a damaged venting component.

The gas appliance and vent system must be vented directly to the outside of the building and never attached to a chimney serving a solid fuel or other gas appliance. Each direct vent gas appliance must have its own separate vent system. Common vent systems are prohibited.

If the venting system is disassembled for any reason, re-installaccording to the manufacturer’s installation instructions.

Vent Restriction

The GF 600 DV Firelight includes two rectangular Exhaust Restrictor plates and one square Air Inlet Restrictor Plate as shown in Figure 5. These are located in the parts bag. The plates are used to compensate for draft characteristics that would otherwise interfere with proper burner performance such as low heat output, weak flame picture, or inefficient combustion.

Exhaust Restrictor Plate Installation

Both Exhaust Restrictor Plates (#129642) MUST be installed in allCo-linearvent systems and any vertically terminated vent run exceeding 7 feet (210 cm) in length.

Vertical Venting and Termination

The GF 600 DV Firelight can be vertically vented through a roof or ceiling. Follow these guidelines

Steep roofs, nearby trees, or predominantly windy conditions, can promote poor draft or down draft conditions. In such cases,an increase to the height of the vent may improve performance.

If an offset or elbow is necessary in the vertical rise, the vent pipe must be supported every three feet to avoid excessive stress on the offsets. Use listed Wall Straps from any of the approved vent suppliers.

Whenever possible, use 45° elbows instead of

90° elbows as they offer less restriction to the flow of flue gases and intake air.

A firestop is required at every floor penetration. The opening should be framed to 10" X 10" inside dimension. A listed wall thimble is required as a firestop.

Any venting that is exposed above the first floor must be enclosed regardless of attic space or living space. Always maintain the required 1" clearance from all sides of the vertical vent system.

IT IS NECESSARY to add restriction to a vertical vent installation to compensate for excessive draft. See the Adding Draft Restriction section on page 8.

GAS VENT HEIGHT: In no case shall any discharge opening on the cap be less than 18” (457mm) horizontally from the roof surface.

Horizontal Termination

The horizontal termination cap must maintain a

3” clearance to any overhead combustible projections that are 2 1/2” or less. It must also maintain a 12” clearance from projections that exceed 2 1/2”. See Figure 9.

Minimum vertical rise from the top exit position is a 24”section vent pipe. See Fig. 10.

A horizontal vent run made directly off the rear of the stove must terminate ONLY with a 36” Snorkel Cap.

The maximum horizontal run shall include no more than a single 24” section of pipe. See Figure 11.

The termination cap must not be recessed into the wall or siding. Do not fill air space in wall around termination cap with any type of insulation.

A minimum 11” X 11” square hole is required for the proper pipe clearance through a wall penetration. A 10” x 10” opening is suitable with use of Simpson Dura-VentWall Thimble #942.

Any horizontal run of vent must be level or have a 1/4” rise for every foot of run toward the termination cap.

Prevent potential damage to vinyl siding with installation of a Vinyl Siding Standoff between the vent cap and the exterior wall.

Gas Connection

NOTE: IF THE OPTIONAL BLOWER KIT (# 129161) IS TO BE INSTALLED ON THE STOVE AT THE TIME OF THE INSTALLATION OR IN THE FUTURE, THE GAS SUPPLY LINE SHOULD BE INSTALLED AS CLOSE TO THE FLOOR AS POSSIBLE. USE OF A 90° ELBOW DIRECTLY OFF THE VALVE TO ALLOW FOR ADEQUATE CLEARANCE FOR THE BLOWER. See Figure 15.

The gas supply line connection is made to the valve just inside the left rear leg. The Gas supply line should be 3/8" or 1/2" diameter, or the appropriate size to provide sufficient gas pressure to the valve regardless of the input setting.

The use of Flexible Gas Appliance Connectors is acceptable in many areas in the U.S., however, Canadian methods vary depending on local code.

ALL INSTALLATIONS MUST COMPLY WITH LOCAL CODE OR IN THE ABSENCE OF LOCAL CODE, MUST COMPLY WITH THE MOST RECENT EDITION OF THE NATIONAL FUEL GAS CODE ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 OR CAN-B149.

All codes require a gas shutoff valve (gas cock) and union to be installed in the supply line and in the same room as the appliance for servicing and maintenance. See Figure 17.

T-handlegas cocks are required in Massachusetts in compliance with Code 248 CMR.

Secure all joints tightly using appropriate tools and sealing compounds (for propane units be sure to use compounds that are propane resistant). Turn on gas supply and test for gas leaks using a soapy water solution. Never use an open flame to check for leaks.

Figure 17. Gas supply valve types and fittings.

Leak test:

1.Mix a 50-50solution of water and dish soap.

2.Light appliancesee lighting instructions on page 22 of this manual or on the stove’s rating plate.

3.Brush or spray all joints and connections with the soapy water solution.

4.If bubbles appear at any connection or seam or a gas odor is detected immediately turn gas control knob to the OFF position.

5.Tighten or reconnect the leaking joint and retest for any gas leaks.

Gas Pressure

It is important that the correct pressure is established at the time of the installation. Proper gas pressure provides a consistent flow of gas to the appliance and is instrumental in checking for gas leaks. The gas control valve on the stove is equipped with pressure test points for gauge connections. The gauge connections are located on the front of the valve under the On/Off/Pilotknob. See Fig. 18. Gauge connections are identified by:

E forinlet or supply pressure ( the amount of gas coming to the valve.)

A formanifold pressure (the amount of gas that is coming out of the valve to the burner.)

ALWAYS TEST PRESSURES WITH VALVE CONTROL KNOB SET ON HIGH.

High Altitude Adjustment

When installing the GF 600 DV Firelight gas stove in high altitude situations (above 2500') it becomes necessary to compensate for the thinner air (less volume of oxygen per cubic foot). High altitudes affect the atmospheric pressure and heat value of gaseous fuels. Lower oxygen content in the air and lower gas viscosity require the use of a different orifice to achieve efficient, clean combustion at the burner tube.

In the U.S.,

THE DERATING KIT MUST BE INSTALLED BY AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE TECHNICIAN IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS AND ALL CODES AND REQUIREMENTS OF THE AUTHORITY HAVING JURISDICTION. THE INFORMATION STICKER MUST BE FILLED OUT BY THE INSTALLER AND ADHERED TO THE APPLIANCE AT THE TIME OF THE CONVERSION. THE QUALIFIED SERVICE AGENCY PERFORMING THIS WORK ASSUMES RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS DERATING.

In Canada,

This unit has been tested for installation at high altitudes in accordance with Canadian test standard CAN/CGA-2.17.

THE DERATING SHALL BE CARRIED OUT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE PROVINCIAL AUTHORITIES HAVING JURISDICTION AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE CAN1-B-149.1AND .2 INSTALLATION CODE.

For installations from 610 - 1370 meters (2,000- 4,500 ft.) the orifice size is 3.3 mm for natural gas and #48 mm for propane.

SEE THE HIGH ALTITUDE ORIFICE CHART on the page 19. For high altitude installations, consult your local gas distributor or the authority having jurisdiction for proper rating methods. If the installer must convert the unit to adjust for varying altitudes, the information sticker must be filled out by the installer and applied to the appliance at the time of the conversion.

18

Derating Procedure

To derate this unit, install the appropriate orifice per the High Altitude chart.

1.Remove the two ¼” hex head screw that holds the burner tube/log support to the bottom of the stove.

2.Remove the burner tube/log support to expose the main burner orifice.

3.Remove the orifice and replace with the appropriate one from the high altitude kit.

4.Be sure to attach the high altitude conversion sticker provided with the kit to the rating plate on the appliance.

Air Shutter Adjustment / Flame

Appearance

The GF 600 DV FIRELIGHT gas stove is shipped from the factory equipped as a NATURAL GAS STOVE. If the stove is converted for propane, it will be necessary to adjust the air shutter on the burner tube to achieve the proper gas to air mixture. The proper air shutter settings are:

1/2” open for natural 7/8” open for propane

The air shutter can also help achieve the desired flame appearance. Generally, flame appearance is a matter of preference, however most people enjoy a warm yellowish flame.

Air Shutter Too Open - the appliance will generate a flame that is blue and transparent, or an “anemic” flame.

Air Shutter Too Closed - the appliance will generate very long yellow flames resulting in soot. Sooting produces black deposits on the logs, on the inside walls of the appliance, and potentially on the exterior termination cap.

Sooting is caused by incomplete combustion in the flames and lack of combustion air entering the air shutter opening.

To adjust the air shutter, remove the burner tube and using a phillips head screwdriver loosen the screw at the air shutter and adjust accordingly. Be sure to retighten the screw that holds the air shutter setting. Reassemble the stove and close the door. Allow stove to burn 30 minutes on the HIGH setting, observing the flame continuously. If the flame appears weak, slow, or sooty, repeat the process described above until the flame is as desired.

See Fig. 13.

WARNING:

AIR SHUTTER ADJUSTMENTS

SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED

ONLY BY A QUALIFIED PROFES-

SIONAL SERVICE TECHNICIAN.

Install the Log Set

The four-piecelog set is packaged in bubble wrap inside the firebox.

Do not handle the log set with your bare hands. Always wear gloves to prevent skin irritation from the ceramic fibers.

1.Remove the Grille and Top Plate from the stove. Release the Glass Clips on top of the firebox. Lift the Glass Panel straight up and out of the stove. Remove the log set package.

2.Install the Rear Log, oriented as shown in Fig. 20. Place the log on the shelf (Rear Log Support) against the back wall of the firebox. Push it over to the right rear corner.

3.Install the Front Log on the Log Support over the center of the burner tube. The pins in the Front Log Support will engage with holes in the bottom of the Front Log.

4.Install the Cross-overLog and Left Logas shown in Fig. 21. Engage the pins in the Front Log with the corresponding holes in the bottoms of the upper logs and position the other ends in the notches on the Rear Log.

Placement of the Embers

The package of Ember stones, located in the hardware bag, will simulate glowing coals when the burner is operating. For best results, spread the stones evenly across the burner tube screen. “Pea” size embers create the best appearance, while too large a “chunk” can create long stringy yellow flames. All of the embers do not have to be used. See Fig. 21.
