PRODUCT FEATURES
OPERATION
This heater is clean burning. It requires no outside venting. There is no heat loss out a vent or up a chimney. Heat is generated by realistic dancing, yellow flames. This heater is designed for vent­free operation with flue damper closed. It has been tested and approved to ANSI Z21.11.2 standard for unvented heaters. State and local codes in some areas prohibit the use of vent-free heaters. This heater may also be operated as a vented decora­tive (ANSI Z21.60) product by opening the flue damper (non-thermostat operation only).
SAFETY PILOT
This heater has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensing (ODS) safety shutoff system. The ODS/ pilot is a required feature for vent-free room heat­ers. The ODS/pilot shuts off the heater if there is not enough fresh air.
PIEZO IGNITION SYSTEM
This heater has a piezo ignitor. This system re­quires no matches, batteries, or other sources to light heater.
AIR FOR COMBUSTION
AND VENTILATION
WARNING: This heater shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight con­struction unless provisions are provided for adequate combus­tion and ventilation air. Read the following instructions to in­sure proper fresh air for this and other fuel-burning appli­ances in your home.
Today’s homes are built more energy efficient than ever. New materials, increased insulation, and new construction methods help reduce heat loss in homes. Home owners weather strip and caulk around windows and doors to keep the cold air out and the warm air in. During heating months, home owners want their homes as airtight as possible.
While it is good to make your home energy effi­cient, your home needs to breathe. Fresh air must enter your home. All fuel-burning appliances need fresh air for proper combustion and ventilation.
Exhaust fans, fireplaces, clothes dryers, and fuel burning appliances draw air from the house to operate. You must provide adequate fresh air for these appliances. This will insure proper venting of vented fuel-burning appliances.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE VENTILATION
The following are excerpts from National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Section 5.3, Air for Combustion and Ventilation.
All spaces in homes fall into one of the three fol­lowing ventilation classifications:
1. Unusually Tight Construction
2. Unconfined Space
3. Confined Space
The information on pages 5 through 7 will help you classify your space and provide adequate ventilation.

AIR FOR COMBUSTION
AND VENTILATION
Continued
Unusually Tight Construction
The air that leaks around doors and windows may provide enough fresh air for combustion and ven­tilation. However, in buildings of unusually tight construction, you must provide additional fresh air.
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where: a. walls and ceilings exposed to the out-
side atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder with a rating of one perm (6x10 less with openings gasketed or sealed
and
b. weather stripping has been added on
openable windows and doors
c. caulking or sealants are applied to ar-
eas such as joints around window and door frames, between sole plates and floors, between wall-ceiling joints, be­tween wall panels, at penetrations for plumbing, electrical, and gas lines, and at other openings.
If your home meets all of the three criteria above, you must provide additional fresh air. See page 7
Ventilation Air From Outdoors
.
If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above, proceed to
Fresh-Air Flow for Heater Location
Confined and Unconfined Space
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54
defines a confined space as a space whose vol­ume is less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space and an un­confined space as a space whose volume is not less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all ap­pliances installed in that space. Rooms communi­cating directly with the space in which the appli­ances are installed*, through openings not fur­nished with doors, are considered a part of the un­confined space.
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only if there are doorless passageways or ventilation grills be­tween them.

DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW FOR HEATER LOCATION
Determining if You Have a Confined or Unconfined Space
Use this work sheet to determine if you have a confined or unconfined space.
Space: Includes the room in which you will install fireplace plus any adjoining rooms with doorless pas­sageways or ventilation grills between the rooms.
1. Determine the volume of the space (length x width x height).
Length x Width x Height =__________cu. ft. (volume of space)
Example:
(width) x 8 ft. (ceiling height) = 2,560 cu. ft. (vol­ume of space)
If additional ventilation to adjoining room is sup­plied with grills or openings, add the volume of these rooms to the total volume of the space.
2. Multiply the space volume by 20 to determine the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support.
__________ (volume of space) x 20 = (Maxi-
mum Btu/Hr the space can support)
Example:
51,200 (maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)
3. Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.
Vent-free fireplace _________ Btu/Hr
,
Gas water heater* _________ Btu/Hr
Gas furnace _________ Btu/Hr
Vented gas heater _________ Btu/Hr
Gas fireplace logs _________ Btu/Hr
Other gas appliances* + ________ Btu/Hr
Total = ________ Btu/Hr
* Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Di­rect-vent draws combustion air from the outdoors and vents to the outdoors.
Example:
Gas water heater _____________ Btu/Hr
Vent-free fireplace _____________ Btu/Hr
Total _____________ Btu/Hr
4. Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support with the actual amount of Btu/Hr used.

AIR FOR COMBUSTION
AND VENTILATION
Continued
The space in the example is a confined space because the actual Btu/Hr used is more than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support. You must provide ad­ditional fresh air. Your options are as follows:
A. Rework worksheet, adding the space of an adjoin-
ing room. If the extra space provides an uncon­fined space, remove door to adjoining room or add ventilation grills between rooms. See Ventilation
Air From Inside Building.
B. Vent room directly to the outdoors. See Ventila-
tion Air From Outdoors.
C. Install a lower Btu/Hr fireplace, if lower Btu/Hr
size makes room unconfined.
If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support, the space is an un­confined space. You will need no additional fresh air ventilation.
WARNING: If the area in which the heater may be oper­ated is smaller than that defined as an unconfined space or if the building is of unusually tight construction, provide adequate combustion and ventilation air by one of the methods described in the
ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 Section
5.3
VENTILATION AIR
Ventilation Air From Inside Building
This fresh air would come from an adjoining un­confined space. When ventilating to an adjoining unconfined space, you must provide two perma­nent openings: one within 12" of the ceiling and one within 12" of the floor on the wall connecting the two spaces (see options 1 and 2, Figure 3). You can also remove door into adjoining room (see option 3, Figure 3). Follow the National Fuel Gas

INSTALLING DAMPER CLAMP ACCESSORY FOR VENTED OPERATION
Note:
When used as a vented heater, appliance must be installed only in a solid-fuel burning fire­place with a working flue and constructed of non­combustible material.
If your heater is a manually controlled model, you may use this heater as a vented product. There are three reasons for operating your heater in the vented mode.
1. The fireplace does not meet the clearance to com-
bustibles requirements for vent-free operation.
2. State or local codes do not permit vent-free
operation.
3. You prefer vented operation.
If reasons number 1 or 2 above apply to you, you must permanently open chimney flue damper. You must install the damper clamp accessory (to or­der, see Accessories, page 43). This will insure vented operation (see Figure 11). The damper clamp will keep damper open. Installation instruc­tions are included with clamp accessory.

INSTALLING HEATER BASE ASSEMBLY
CAUTION: Do not remove the data plates attached to the heater base assembly. The data plates contain important war­ranty and safety information.
WARNING: You must secure this heater to fireplace floor. If not, heater will move when you adjust controls. Moving heater may cause a gas leak.
WARNING: If installing in a sunken fireplace, special care is needed. You must raise the fire­place floor to allow access to heater control panel. This will in­sure adequate air flow and guard against sooting and controls be­ing damaged. Raise fireplace floor with noncombustible material. Make sure material is secure.
CAUTION: Do not pick up heater base assembly by the burner. This could damage heater. Only handle base assem­bly by grates.
IMPORTANT:
level. If heater is not level, heater will not work properly. For thermostat models, avoid damage to thermostat bulb. Avoid nicks or sharp bends in thermostat bulb wire. Keep thermostat bulb in mounting bracket until ready to mount base to floor. See Optional Positioning Of Thermostat Sensing Bulb, pages 29 and 30.
Installation Items Needed
• hardware package (provided with heater)
• approved flexible gas hose (not provided) (if allowed by local codes)
• sealant resistant to propane (propane/LP) gas, not provided
• electric drill with 3/16" drill bit
• flathead screwdriver
1. Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male threads
of the fitting to be threaded into gas regulator. Connect approved flexible gas hose to gas regulator of heater (see Figure 12).
IMPORTANT:
wrench when connecting flexible gas hose.
2. Locate masonry screws in hardware package.
3. Position heater base assembly in fireplace.
4. Place logs in their proper position on heater base,
see Installing Logs on pages 16 through 19.
5. Center heater base and logs front-to-back and
side-to-side in fireplace.
6. Carefully remove logs without moving heater

CONNECTING TO GAS SUPPLY
WARNING: This appliance requires a 1/2" NPT (National Pipe Thread) inlet connection to the pressure regulator.
WARNING: A qualified ser­vice person must connect heater to gas supply. Follow all local codes.
CAUTION: Never connect heater directly to the propane/ LP supply. This heater requires an external regulator (not sup­plied). Install the external regu­lator between the heater and propane/LP supply.

Installation Items Needed
Before installing heater, make sure you have the items listed below.
• external regulator (supplied by installer)
• piping (check local codes)
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• equipment shutoff valve *
• test gauge connection *
• sediment trap
• tee joint
• pipe wrench
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge connection. Purchase the optional CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve from your dealer. See Accessories, page 43.

INSTALLATION
Continued
For propane/LP units, the installer must supply an external regulator. The external regulator will re­duce incoming gas pressure. You must reduce in­coming gas pressure to between 11 and 14 inches of water. If you do not reduce incoming gas pres­sure, heater regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 15. Pointing the vent down pro­tects it from freezing rain or sleet.
CAUTION: Use only new, black iron or steel pipe. Inter­nally-tinned copper tubing may be used in certain areas. Check your local codes. Use pipe of 1/2" diameter or greater to allow proper gas volume to heater. If pipe is too small, undue loss of volume will occur.
Installation must include an equipment shutoff valve, union, and plugged 1/8" NPT tap. Locate NPT tap within reach for test gauge hook up. NPT tap must be upstream from heater (see Figure 16).
IMPORTANT:
sible location. The equipment shutoff valve is for turning on or shutting off the gas to the appliance.
Check your building codes for any special re­quirements for locating equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT threads. This will prevent excess sealant from go­ing into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could result in clogged heater valves.

We recommend that you install a sediment trap in supply line as shown in Figure 16. Locate sediment trap where it is within reach for cleaning. Install in piping system between fuel supply and heater. Lo­cate sediment trap where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A sediment trap traps moisture and con­taminants. This keeps them from going into heater controls. If sediment trap is not installed or is in­stalled wrong, heater may not run properly.
CAUTION: Avoid damage to regulator. Hold gas regulator with wrench when connecting it to gas piping and/or fittings.
