Safety Information

This appliance will reach high surface temperatures during normal operation. Please read the following notes to help ensure safe operation.

Due to the high operating temperatures this appliance should be located out of traffic and away from furniture and draperies.

Children and adults should be alerted to the hazards of high surface temperatures and should stay away to avoid burns or clothing ignition.

Young children should be supervised while they are in the same room as the Allagash gas stove.

Clothing or other flammable materials should not be placed ON or NEAR the Allagash gas stove. Surveiller les enfants. Garder les vetements, les meubles, l’essence ou autres liquides a vapeur inflammables loin de l’appareil.

NEVER store or use gasoline or any other flammable vapors or liquids in the vicinity of the Allagash gas stove.

Never burn any other materials in your Allagash gas stove, it is strictly designed for use with natural gas or propane fuel ONLY.

Any safety screen, glass or guard removed for servicing the appliance must be replaced prior to operating the appliance.

Location

In selecting a location for the stove, consider the following points:

1)Heat distribution

2)Vent termination requirements

3)Gas supply line routing

4)Traffic areas, furniture, draperies, etc.

The GF100 Nordic QT may be located on or near conventional construction materials, however, proper clearance to combustibles must be maintained in order to provide adequate air circulation around the appliance. Also, it is important to provide adequate access around the stove for servicing and proper operation.

The clearance and hearth specifications listed in this manual are the minimum requirements for combustible material. A combustible material 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 may be located behind non-combustibles.

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,“firerated” sheet rock is considered combustible.

Electrical Hazard

When the Allagash gas stove is installed with the optional forced air Blower Kit, the stove must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the current NFPA 70National Electrical Code or CSA C22.1-CanadianCode.

The Allagash Blower Kit is supplied with a threeprong (grounding) plug for protection against shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded three-prongreceptacle.

DO NOT CUT OR REMOVE THE GROUNDING PRONG FROM THE PLUG.

Always unplug the Blower Kit when performing routine service to the Allagash gas stove.

Hearth Requirements

The Allagash gas stove CAN NOT be installed directly on carpeting, vinyl flooring, linoleum or Pergo®. If you wish 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.

Note: the hearth requirements are the same when using the optional short leg package.

Venting Requirements

There are two types of venting configurations approved for use with the Allagash gas stove - Horizontal Termination and Vertical Termination.

The GF3 DVII Allagash is approved for use with the following vent components:

Simpson Dura-VentGS

Secure Vent - Security Chimneys Intl. Ltd. Amerivent Direct

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, bodily injury, or serious fire. Use parts from one manufacturer only - DO NOT MIX VENT COMPONENTS FROM DIFFERENT MANUFACTURERS IN THE SAME SYSTEM.

The approved vent configurations described herein 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: strong prevailing winds, snow accumulation, etc. These conditions should be taken into consideration by the installer and stove owner.

IMPORTANT

JOINT SEALING REQUIREMENT: APPLY A 1/8” BEAD OF HIGH-TEMPERATURE (750°F) SEALANT TO THE MALE SECTION OF THE INNER VENT PIPE.

THE CEMENT SHOULD FORM A SEAL BETWEEN THE INNER AND OUTER PIPES.

NEVER MODIFY ANY VENTING COMPONENT, OR USE ANY DAMAGED VENTING

FOLLO THE INSTALLATION SEALANT INSTRUCTIONS PRO-

VIDED BY THE VENT MANUFACTURER FOR EACH VENT PART.

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 GAS BURNING APPLIANCE. EACH DIRECT VENT GAS APPLIANCE MUST HAVE ITS OWN SEPARATE VENT SYSTEM. COMMON VENT SYSTEMS ARE PROHIBITED.

IF VENTING SYSTEM IS DISASSEMBLED FOR ANY

REASON, REINSTALL PER THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED FOR THE INITIAL INSTALLATION.PRODUCT.

Vertical Venting Requirements

(Vertical Termination)

·The minimum height of a vertically terminated system shall be no less than 7'. The maximum height shall be no more than 35'.

·With steep roofs, nearby trees, and predominant windy conditions, poor draft or down draft conditions can occur. In these cases, increasing the height of the vent may improve the situation.

·If an offset or elbow is necessary in the vertical rise, it is important to support the vent pipe every three feet, to avoid excessive stress on the offsets. Jøtul recommends the use of Simpson Dura-Vent’sWall Straps. (#988).

·Whenever possible use 45° elbows opposed to 90° elbows. This offers less restrictions for the flow of flue gases and intake air.

NOTE: Vertical termination may result in reduced flame height and heat output due to the“suction” of natural draft.

·Vertical Termination Height: In no case shall any discharge opening on the cap be less than 2' (610 mm) horizontally from the roof surface. See Figure 4.

·A firestop is required at every floor. The opening should be framed to 10" X 10" inside dimension. Jøtul recommends the use of Simpson Dura-VentFirestop (#963).

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

·It may be necessary to add restriction to a vertical venting installation, so that the draft is not too strong and creates incomplete combustion.

The Allagash is equipped with sliding restriction plates that can be adjusted to compensate for excessive draft. See Figure 5.

Horizontal Venting Requirements

Follow these guidelines if any part of the installation incorporates a horizontal run or terminates horizontally.

The maximum horizontal run made directly off the rear of the stove shall be no more than 12" and must then be connected to a 14" snorkel cap (SimpsonDura-vent#982).

The horizontal termination cap must maintain a 3" clearance to any overhead combustible projections exceeding 2 1/2" or less. Maintain 12" clearance from projections exceeding 2 1/2". See Figure 8, page for complete termination clearance information.

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

NEVER ALLOW THE VENTING TO SLOPE DOWNWARD, AS HIGH TEMPERATURES MAY RESULT AND CREATE A HAZARDOUS CONDITION.

Vent Pipe Clearance to Combustible Materials: For all horizontal runs, a 2" top clearance and a 1" side and bottom clearance must be maintained.

Wall Pass-through: A minimum 10" X 10" square cutout is required to maintain proper clearances through combustible wall construction. The opening must be framed in. SimpsonDura-VentWall Thimble #942 or Secure Vent Wall Radiation Shield SV4RSM must be used for the wallpass-through.Optional decorative plates are available to finish the interior side of the wallpass-through.

IMPORTANT: Follow the vent manufacturer’s installation instructions provided with each vent component.

DONOTFILLAIRSPACEWITHANYTYPEOFINSULATION.

MAINTAIN THE PROPER CLEARANCES TO THE TERMINATION CAP. SEE FIG. 10.

Do not recess the termination cap into a wall or siding.

Install a Vinyl Siding Standoff between the vent cap and the exterior wall (Simpson Dura-Vent#950). to protect vinyl siding from overheating.

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.THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE INSTALLED BY A LICENSED MASTER OR JOURNEYMAN PLUMBER ORGAS-FITTERWHEN INSTALLED IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS.

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. This allows for the disconnection of the stove for servicing and maintenance. See Figure 15.

A T-HANDLEGAS COCK IS 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.

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

Correct gas pressure is essential for efficient and safe operation of the Allagash gas stove. 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. 16. 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.)

High Altitude Adjustment

Installation at high altitude locations (above 2500'), makes it necessary to compensate for the thinner air (less volume of air per cubic foot). Higher altitudes affect the atmospheric pressure and heat value of some gaseous fuels. The Allagash DVII requires adjustment for Propane fuel at high altitude, but not for Natural gas.

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.

For installations from 610 - 1370 meters (20004500 ft.) the orifice size for natural gas is #38 and for propane gas #54.

SEE THE HIGH ALTITUDE ORIFICE CHART ON THIS PAGE.

See the stove Rating Plate for additional information. For high altitude installations consult the 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.

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.

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 & Flame Picture

Adjustment

The GF3 DVII Allagash is shipped from the factory equipped to use NATURAL GAS. If the stove is converted to use Propane, it will be necessary to adjust the air shutter on the burner tube to achieve the proper gas to air mix. THE AIR SHUTTER SHOULD BE SET FULL OPEN FOR PROPANE USE AND THREE QUARTERS OPEN FOR NATURAL GAS USE.

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.

Too large a setting: The appliance will generate a flame that is blue and transparent, or an “anemic” flame.

Too small a setting: 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. See Fig. 12 for reference.

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.

WARNING:

AIR SHUTTER ADJUSTMENTS SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL SERVICE TECHNICIAN.

Log Set Installation

The Allagash is equipped a one piece log set and is packaged in bubble wrap inside the firebox. The log set must be removed from the packaging and arranged in the unit prior to start up of the gas stove. Do not handle the log set with your bare hands. Always wear gloves to prevent skin irritation from the ceramic fibers.

To install the log set, remove the packaging and place the log set inside the firebox, centered from left to right and completely against the rear wall of the stove. See Fig. 18.

Also, the stove is shipped with a package of Glowing Embers. These are to be individually sprinkled across the screen above the burner tube. It is best to equally space these embers for optimum flame appearance. Note: All of the embers do not need to be used.

CONTACT WITH THE CERAMIC FIBER LOGS AND GLOWING EMBERS MAY CAUSE SKIN IRRITATION. SHOULD THAT OCCUR, GENTLY WASH HANDS WITH WARM SOAPY WATER.

Optional Wall Thermostat or Remote Control

When installing a wall mounted thermostat to the Allagash it must be 750 millivolt DC two-wirecircuit thermostat. The thermostat should be placed in the same room as the heater, typically 5’ off the floor. Avoid drafty areas or any area that may effect the accuracy of the thermostat.

The thermostat should be connected to the Allagash using a minimum of 16 gauge wire with a maximum length of 35 feet of wire.

Connect the two thermostat wire leads to the two lower terminals on the terminal block located directly above the ignitor button. Do not overtighten the connections. IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO DISCONNECT ANY OTHER WIRES. See Figure 23.

For the thermostat to work the On/Off/T-Statswitch on the back of the stove must be in theT-statposition, and the pilot light must be running, for it is the power source for the thermostat.

At the thermostat the two wires should be connected to the two connections screws on the thermostat base plate per the manufacturer’s instructions.

Remote Control

The remote receiver should be wired to the terminal block the same as the thermostat. See the instructions above.
