INTRODUCTION

WARNING: This product con­tains and/or generates chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Models CD32M series, CD36M-A series and CD42M-A seri es are heat circula ti ng grav ity direct-vent fireplaces with sealed combustion chamber. These fireplaces use millivolt gas control valve and millivolt ignition system.
These fireplaces are convertible with the standard setup as natural gas. Conversion may be performed by the O.E.M. mobile home builder or by a quali fied service person on-site. If you are uncertain as to what gas your unit is equipped for, please check the rating plate located inside of the appliance opening or consult your mobile home supplier or your local distributor of DESA/Vexar products.
NOTICE: Check local building codes for area requirements be­fore installing this appliance.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Before beginning the installation of your appli­ance, read these instructions through completely.
This DESA/Vexar fireplace and its components are safe when installed according to this installation manual and operated as recommended. Unless you use DESA/Vexar components designed and tested for this fireplace system,
A SAFETY HAZARD!
The DESA/Vexar warranty will be voided by, and DESA/Vexar disclaims any responsibility for the following actions:
A) Modification to the fireplace, components,
doors, blower, fans or vent system.
B) Use of any component part not manufactured or
approved by DESA/Vexar in combination with a DESA/Vexar fireplace system.
Proper installation is the most important step in ensuring safe and continuous operation of the fireplace. Consult the local building codes as to the particular requirements concerned with the instal lation of all factory built fireplaces. This fireplace, when installed, must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or in the absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA 70 or the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
YOU MAY CAUSE
The installation must conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 or the Canadian Installa tion Code, CAN/CGA B149. This appliance com-
plies with ANSI Z21.88-1998 and CSA 2.33-M98 as a VENTED GAS FIREPLACE HEATER.

SELECTING LOCATION

To determine the safest and most efficient loca­tion for your fireplace, consider the following
­guidelines:
1. The location must allow for proper clearances
(see Figure 1).
2. Consider a location where the fireplace would
not be affected by drafts, air conditioning ducts, windows or doors.
-
3. A location that avoids the cutting of joists or roof
rafters makes ventilation installation easier.
In selecting a location, the following precautions must be observed:
• Do not connect this appliance to a chimney
system used for solid fuel burning fireplace.
• Due to high temperatures, do not locate this
appliance in high traffic areas or near furniture and draperies.
• Never obstruct the openings of the appliance
or flow of ventilation air. Keep the control compartments accessible.
FULL
PROJECTION
Flush installation is recommended where living space is limited.
Projected installation may be ideal for a new addition to an existing finished wall.
Corner installation makes use of a space that may
­not normally be used and provides a wider and
more efficient range for radiant heat transfer.

VENT TERMINATION CLEARANCES
The final position of your fireplace depends on the location of the vent termination in relation to the clearances that must be observed as shown in Figure 5 on page 6.
The vent system serves as the “chimney” as well as the combustion air supply (air intake). The horizontal run must have a rise of 1/4" (.6 cm) for every 12" (30.48 cm) of horizontal run towards the termination. The maximum horizontal run depends on the vertical rise from the fireplace adapter collar to the vent termination (see table below).
VERTICAL HORIZONTAL
0 to 1 ft (30.48 cm)
1 ft (30.48 cm) to 4 ft (121.92 cm)
2 ft (60.96 cm) to 8 ft (243.84 cm)
3 ft (91.44 cm) to 12 ft (365.76 cm)
4 ft (121.92 cm) to 16 ft (487.68 cm)
5 ft (152.40 cm) to 15 ft (457.20 cm)
6 ft (182.88 cm) to 14 ft (426.72 cm)
7 ft (213.36 cm) to 13 ft (396.24 cm)
8 ft (243.84 cm) to 12 ft (365.76 cm)
FRAMING
Once the final location has been determined, ob­serving height clearances for vent termination, you may construct framing using dimensions shown in Figures 3 and 4, depending on your installation.
If the appliance is to be installed directly on carpet ing, tile (other than ceramic) or any combustible material other than wood flooring, the appliance must be installed on a metal or wood panel extend­ing the full width and depth of the appliance.

tures which could cause a fire.
WARNING: Horizontal sec­tions of this vent system require a minimum clearance of 2" from the top of the pipe and 1" mini
­mum to the sides and bottom. Vertical sections of this system require a minimum of 1" clear­ance to combustible materials on all sides of the pipe.

INSTALLATION

WARNING: Read all instruc­tions completely and thoroughly before attempting installation. Failure to do so could result in serious injury, property dam­age or loss of life. Operation of improperly installed and main­tained venting system could result in serious injury, property damage or loss of life.
NOTICE: Failure to follow these in­structions will void the warranty.
VENTING INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS
Consult local building codes before beginning the installation. The installer must make sure to select the proper vent system for installation. Before installing vent kit, the installer must read this fireplace manual and vent kit instructions.
Only a qualified service person should install venting system. The installer must follow these safety rules:
• Wear gloves and safety glasses for protection
• Use extreme caution when using ladders or when on roof tops
• Be aware of electrical wiring locations in walls and ceilings
The following actions will void the warranty on your venting system:
• Installation of any damaged venting component
• Unauthorized modification of the venting system
• Installation of any component part not manu factured or approved by DESA
• Installation other than as instructed by these instructions
WARNING: This gas fireplace and vent assembly must be vented directly to the outside. The venting system must NEVER be attached to a chimney serving a separate solid fuel burning appli­ance. Each gas appliance must use a separate vent system. Do not use common vent systems.
WARNING: Horizontal sec­tions of this vent system require a minimum clearance of 2" from the top of the pipe and 1" mini mum to the sides and bottom. Vertical sections of this system require a minimum of 1" clear­ance to combustible materials on all sides of the pipe.
VENTING INSTALLATION
1. Install elbow to fireplace collar adapter located on back of the unit at a 45° angle. Slide elbow over collar and twist to lock. Check to insure proper connection (see Figure 6).
2. Continue to install remainder of pipe for desired installation. Make sure each section is twist-locked securely.
3. When installation of vent pipe is complete, in stall vent termination. Depending on the loca tion of your fireplace, you will vent vertically or horizontally.
4. Allow 1" of pipe to protrude from internal wall, dep ending on wall thic kn ess. See Figure 7, page 8.
5. For horizontal installation, an optional siding standoff may be installed between the vent cap and the exterior wall. Secure horizontal vent cap to standoff. Secure standoff/vent cap assembly to wall (see Figure 7, page 8). Do not seal termi nation to vent pipe. The vent termination must be removable for service pipe inspection.

6. For vertical installation, a vertical termination is available. Also for vertical venting application, install vertical flue restrictor into inner collar of fireplace as shown in Figure 6, page 7.
When installing a length of pipe for vertical
termination that is over 3 ft., support the pipe every 3 ft. using metal wall straps. Vertical to horizontal pipe must be kept at a 1 ft. to 4 ft. ratio with a maximum run of no more than 20 ft.
If an offset is necessary in the attic to avoid
obstruction, it is important to support the vent pipe every 3 ft. to avoid excessive stress on the elbows and possible separation (see Figure 8).
Clearances must be maintained between the roof
and the termination. Refer to chart below.
