Safety Information

During normal operation, the GF 300 BV gas stove will reach high surface temperatures. Therefore:

Due to the high operating temperatures, this appliance should be located out of traffic areas 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 and/or clothing ignition.

Young children should be supervised while they are in the same room as the GF 300 BV gas stove.

Clothing or other flammable materials should not be placed ON or NEAR the GF 300 BV 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 GF 300 BV gas stove.

Never burn any other materials in your GF 300 BV 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 GF 300 BV 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 noncombustibles.

If you are not sure of the combustible nature of a material, consult your local fire officials. “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 GF 300 BV gas stove CANNOT be installed directly on carpeting, vinyl, linoleum or Pergo®.

If this appliance will be installed on any combustible material OTHER THAN WOOD, a floor pad must be installed that is either metal or 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 carpeting, vinyl or linoleum from underneath the floor protection. See fig. 1.

Vent Requirements

The GF 300 BV Allagash is specifically designed to operate using 4” Type B vent pipe components or a Listed Flexible gas liner.

All venting components must be installed in accordance with the terms of their listing and manufacturer’s instructions.

The minimum height of a vertically terminated system shall be no less than 7', and the maximum height shall be no more than35'. See diagrams page 9.

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

ELBOWS: 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.

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

Maximum number of 90° elbows: three Maximum number of 45° elbows: four

TOTAL MAXIMUM HORIZONTAL RUN ANYWHERE IN THE VENTING CONFIGURATION IS 4 FEET. The distance between any 45° elbows is considered a horizontal run. See diagrams, page 10.

Any Type B vent passing through a roof must have a flashing, storm collar, thimble and a Type B cap is required. See diagrams, page 10.

Venting on the Allagash CANNOT be less than 4” in diameter or greater than 4” in diameter.

Any unused flue or masonry enclosure can be used as a passage way for venting, but the flue must be relined using Type B 4” vent or Listed Flexible Gas Liner.

The remaining space around the liner in a masonry or zero-clearanceflue CANNOT be used to vent any other appliance.

Figure 5. Termination Height Requirements.

When terminating through the roof refer to the Gas Vent Rule for proper vent termination height.

See fig. 5.

NO venting may terminate horizontally or below roof eaves.

Passage through combustibles (walls, ceilings) must be with Type B venting and must maintain listed clearances.

Any horizontal run should have an upward slope of 1/4” per foot toward the termination cap.

When venting through a thimble into a masonry flue, any venting exposed in the room must be Type B venting, or a flexible liner sleeve within 24 ga. 6” stove pipe.

Listed Flexible Gas Liners may not be exposed in any living space.

8

When 6” diameter decorative pipe is installed to cover the venting any Listed Flexible Gas liner must be connected directly to the stove’s draft hood.

Use of single wall connector pipe as a vent is prohibited for use with the GF300 Allagash B-Ventstove.

A firestop is required at every floor.

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

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.

Never modify any venting component, or use any damaged venting product.

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 APPLIANCES.

BE SURE TO MAINTAIN THE PROPER CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLES AS DEFINED IN THIS MANUAL AND IN THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED WITH EACH VENTING COMPONENT.

When installing at an altitude above 2000’ the minimum vertical rise becomes 12’ from the draft hood.

NOTE:

A chimney system located outside the building envelope may be subject to downdrafting and/or flow reversal. Atmospherically-ventedappliances, such asB-Vents,may not be compatible with these chimney systems.

All atmospherically-ventedappliances(B-Vents)are affected by atmospheric conditions and house pressurization. For example, aB-Ventappliance vented to an outside chimney system in a basement will likely be subject to negative pressure. This type of installation is not recommended.

7.Lift out the Burner Plate: NOTE: There are no screws securing the Burner to the floor of the firebox. Pull the Air Shutter forward and lift the burner together with shutter up and out of the stove as a unit. See fig. 13.

8.Change the Burner Orifice. See fig. 14. Using a ½” open ended wrench or deep-wellsocket remove the burner orifice from its brass elbow housing and replace with the appropriate orifice supplied in the kit.

9.Replace the Air Shutter with its gasket and push it all the way back to allow replacement of the Burner Plate. Reattach the wingnut to the shutter stem under the stove, but do not tighten. You will set its final position later.

10.Replace the Burner Plate. Engage the burner tube with the Air Shutter assembly as in fig. 13. Be sure the burner is securely engaged with the two support brackets at the front of the firebox and push the plate back toward the rear of the firebox. When correctly positioned, there will be 1/2” (13 mm) clearance between the burner plate and the front of the firebox. See fig. 15.

11 . CHANGE THE PILOT ORIFICE: From within the

firebox, remove the Pilot Head by pulling it straight up from the pilot base. See fig. 16. Using the 4 mm hex key included with the kit, unscrew the pilot orifice (counterclockwise). Replace with the appropriate orifice:

12.Tighten orifice into the base of the pilot assembly. To prevent bypass leaks, be sure the orifice is secured tightly and flush with the base. Replace pilot head by pushing it down onto the pilot base.

13.Replace the Variable Regulator. Using a Torx T-20 screwdriver, remove the three screws from the front of the valve regulator. See fig. 17.

17.Reassemble the stove, apply gas to the system and check for leaks using a soapy water solution.

NEVER USE AN OPEN FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.

18.Correct gas pressure is essential for efficient and safe operation of this appliance. Use a manometer to check pressures as specified in the Gas Pressure section of this manual (page 15).

19.Adjust the Air Shutter. You will need to position the shutter to provide a gas/air mixture that will achieve the best flame picture with your particular installation. Start with the shutter stem at thehalf-wayposition in the slot in the bottom of the stove. See fig. 12. Pushing the stem back will restrict air, while pushing it forward will open the shutter and increase air. With some experimentation, you will find the shutter position that works best for your installation.

ALWAYS REFER TO THE LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS ON THE INSIDE BACK COVER OF THIS MANUAL WHEN LIGHTING YOUR STOVE.

Gas Supply Connection

BLOWER NOTE: Install the optional blower before connecting the gas line in order to ensure adequate clearance between both.

The gas supply line connection is made to the left side of the front-mountedvalve. The gas supply line should be 3/8" npt with a 1/2" diameter supply, 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 shut-offvalve (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 fig. 18.

A T-HANDLEGAS COCK IS REQUIRED IN MASSACHUSETTS TO COMPLY WITH CODE 248CMR.

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.

13

Figure 18. Supply valve connection fittings.

Leak test:

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

2.Light appliancesee lighting instructions on the inside back cover 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 GF 300 BV 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.

Pressure Test: Attach a manometer to the appropriate test point on the valve. See fig. 19. The gauge connections are located on the front of the valve under the On/Off/Pilotknob. Gauge connections are identified by:

E - for Inletor 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.

Log Set Installation

Brick Kit Note: Install the optional Antique Brick Kit

155370 before installing the logset. See page 22 and the instructions provided with that kit.

The GF 300 BV logset must be installed before operating the burner. The logset includes four log pieces, packaged inside the firebox, and a quantity of ember stones packaged in the Miscellaneous Parts bag. To install the log set, remove the packaging and place the parts inside the firebox as illustrated in figures 20-24.Do not

handle the log set with your bare hands. Always wear gloves to prevent skin irritation from the ceramic fibers.

The ember stones realistically simulate glowing coals when the burner is operating. These should be spread evenly over the burner plate and around the logs. DO

NOT OBSTRUCTTHE PILOT ASSEMBLY OPENING. Do not pile the embers in front ot the burner skirt edges. See fig. 24.

NOTE: You do not need to use all of the ember stones. With experimentation, you will find the arrangement and quantity of embers that works best with your stove. Depending upon the characteristics of your installation, it is possible that too many ember stones can promote sooting on the logs. Adjust the quantity of ember stones as appropriate to maintain the best overall flame picture and burner performance.

THE CERAMIC FIBER LOGS AND GLOWING EMBERS CAN IRRITATE YOUR SKIN. GENTLY WASH YOUR HANDS WITH WARM SOAPY WATER AFTER HANDLING THE LOGS.

Flame Appearance / Air Shutter

Adjustment

The GF 300 BV gas stove is shipped from the factory equipped to burn Natural gas. If the stove has been converted for use with propane, the Air Shutter may require adjustment to achieve the desired flame appearance. Other installation related variables can also affect the flame picture. The Air Shutter may be opened or closed to provide the best flame picture for your specific installation.

Too large an air opening - the appliance will generate a flame that is blue and transparent, or an “anemic” flame.

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

To adjust the air shutter:

1.Reach under the right side of the stove and loosen the wingnut located closest to you. See fig. 25. Slide the wingnut stud forward to open the air shutter and back to provide less air. Make adjustments in small increments.

2.Tighten the wingnut to secure the shutter at the desired setting.

3.Allow the stove to burn for 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.

Open Close

Figure 25. Loosen the wingnut to adjust the air shutter.

Optional Wall Thermostat or Remote Control

Use only a 750 millivolt DC two-wirecircuit thermostat with this appliance. The thermostat should be placed in the same room as the heater, typically 5 feet off the floor. Avoid drafty areas or any area that may affect the accuracy of the thermostat.

The thermostat should be connected to the GF 300 BV using a minimum of 16 gauge wire with a maximum length of 25 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 Fig. 26.

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

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

Remote Control

When using a remote, the remote receiver should be wired to the terminal block the same way the thermostat would be. See the instructions above.

Follow the operating instructions included with the Remote Control unit.

CAUTION:

LABEL ALL WIRES PRIOR TO DISCONNECTION WHEN SERVICING THE CONTROLS. WIRING ERRORS CAN CAUSE IMPROPER OR DANGEROUS OPERATION. ALWAYS VERIFY PROPER OPERA-

TION AFTER SERVICING THE APPLIANCE.

Installing Decorative Pipe

The use of decorative pipe is optional. No decorative pipe is included with the Jøtul GF 300 BV Allagash, however, four locator brackets are included with the stove in the hardware bag. The brackets are used to center the decorative pipe over the draft hood on which the pipe rests. Follow the procedure below to attach the brackets to the stove.

1.Remove the four 1/4” hex head screws that attach the 4” Flue Collar to the draft hood, but do not remove the Flue Collar. See Figure 27.

2.Align the “L”- shaped pipe brackets with the holes on the Flue Collar and attach using the four 1/4” hex head screws, located in the Misc. Hardware Bag.

Reminder: Do not use single wall stove pipe as the vent pipe on this appliance.

System Check

1.PURGING THE GAS LINE: When lighting the appliance for the first time, it will take a few moments to clear the gas line of air. Once this purge is complete, the appliance will operate as described in the lighting instructions. See the inside back cover of this manual or the stove Rating Plate attached the bottom of the stove. Subsequent burner starts will not require purging the gas line unless the supply line is shut off.

2.PILOT FLAME: You can monitor the pilot flame through the view port located at the rear of the Right Log. See fig. 28. The pilot flame should be steady - not lifting or floating. The flame should be blue in color around the pilot hood, with traces of yellow toward the outer edges.

The pilot flame should engulf the top 3/8” of the thermopile (to generate millivolt current) and the top 1/8” of the thermocouple. The pilot flame should project out of the pilot hood 1” at all three ports. See fig. 28.

3.BURNER ADJUSTMENT: This stove is equipped with a variable gas control valve that allows easy adjustment of the flame height appearance and heat output. To adjust the flame between the HI and LOW setting, rotate the HI/LOW knob, located in the center of the valve face.Fire intensity can be adjusted up to 50% between the LOW and HIGH settings. See fig. 29.

NO SMOKE OR SOOT SHOULD BE PRESENT. CHECK LOG PLACEMENT IF ANY SOOT OR SMOKE IS PRESENT. IF SOOT OR SMOKE PERSISTS, THE AIR SHUTTER MAY NEED TO BE ADJUSTED.

See Air Shutter/Flame Appearance section of this manual for proper air shutter settings and adjustments. Note: the more offsets there are in the vent system, the greater the need for an air shutter adjustment. See page 16.
