LOCATING FIREPLACE
Plan where to locate and frame replace. Before installation consider the following:
1. Fireplace location must allow for wall and
2. Fireplace screen should not be exposed
3. A 15 amp, 120 Volt, 60 Hz circuit with

proper ground must be available. A dedi­cated circuit should be provided to avoid circuit breaker trips or blown fuses.
Projected Installations can extend any dis­tance into room. A projection may be ideal for a new addition on an existing, nished wall.
Corner Installations make use of space that may not normally be used and provides a wider and more efcient viewing angle and heat distribution.
Internal Wall Installations provide a discrete option for room separation and can also be an ideal addition to an existing wall.

Built-in installations require a framed enclo­sure constructed of 2" x 4" or heavier lumber and sized in accordance with Figure 5. This allows unit to slide into opening and be nailed to stud at sides and top nailing anges. These anges accept 5/8" drywall or plywood board to nish unit ush to face. Optional trim ac­cessories are available that will extend 1/2" over rough edge of wall opening (see Acces-
sories, page 25). IMPORTANT: If installing a perimeter trim kit,
you must install shoulder screws before insert­ing replace into opening. See instructions included with trim kit. If installing a mantel, you must follow clearance instructions (see Installation Clearances, page 4).
A hearth extension is suggested for a more pleasing appearance. The replace may be raised on a wood or non-combustible platform supporting its entire width and depth and extending in front of the replace as long as louvers are not obstructed.
Note: When installing replace in cold cli­mates against a non-insulated exterior wall, wall must be fully insulated in accordance with local building code.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION
WARNING: Any electrical re-
wiring of this appliance must be done by a qualied electrician. This wiring must be done in ac-
cordance with local codes and/or in the U.S.A. with the current, Na-
tional Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No 70 and in Canada with CSA C22.1 Canadian Electric code.
This replace should be con­nected to a dedicated 15 Amp, circuit as other appliances may
cause the circuit breaker to trip or fuse to blow when replace
is in operation.
A junction box with universal strain adaptor is provided to hard wire unit to a 15 amp, 120 Volt 60 Hz grounded circuit. If necessary, junction box may be relocated to route sup­ply to left side.
1. Remove 2 screws and outer cover on right side (see Figure 7, page 6).
2. Remove inner screw securing junction
box.
3. Slide junction box up until mounting tab is lined up to notch in outer cabinet.
4. Swing box out and slip retaining ange out through slot in outer cabinet.
5. Remove 2 screws and outer cover on left side and reattach on right side of outer cabinet.

6. Swing junction box with harness to left side while pulling sufcient length of har­ness out through control panel cover to reach mounting location on left side.
7. Reinsert retaining ange through slot and swing screw mounting tab back through notch as before.
8. Slide junction box down until mounting holes line up and replace inner retaining cover.
9. Pull end of 3 wire Romex supply line through universal strain relief bushing in remaining cover.
10. Strip back outer Romex to about 4” and connect black, white and green wires ac­cordingly using approved connectors.

Screws and Outer Cover
11. Tuck tailing wires into junction box and replace cover using 2 remaining screws.
12. Tighten down strain adjustment on uni­versal bushing until Romex sheathing is secured.
IMPORTANT: Inspect components and wir­ing for damage before connecting power to unit. If any components are found damaged, contact an authorized dealer for original DESA Heating Products replacement part(s) or call DESA Heating Products at 1-866-872-6040 for referral.
IMPORTANT: Prior to operation remove foam shipping brace located under motor mount (see Figure 8).

LAMPS AND LAVA ROCK
Before operating replace, lamp bulbs must be inspected and lava rock may be added if desired.
1. Lift log bed off hearth base to gain access to lamp xtures (log bed is attached with contact magnets).
2. Turn on power to light circuit and check that all bulbs are operating. Bulb place­ment front left to right are red, yellow and orange (see Figure 9).
Note: If bulbs need replacing, see Replac­ing Light Bulbs, page 16. Be careful not to
tear or damage reective strips. If they have
come loose, ends can be easily reattached or
replaced at support brackets. See Replacing Reective Ribbons, page 21.

FEATURES AND OPERATION

This electronic fir eplace series features a random ame effect, and a realistic log bed with glistening embers that can be ad­justed for ame speed and light intensity. E36/32LH models have a circulating heater, rated at 1100 Watts. Models E36/32LB and E36/32LBH include a hand detailed, textured, red-brick lining.
Access controls by pulling two handle tabs of upper louver until panel releases from magnetic catches and swings down to open position (see Figure 10).
Figure 11, page 8, shows control layout for heater equipped models with main power switch to ame controls and heater power switch (when equipped) to heating unit. This allows independent and efcient operation of both features.
Once main power is turned on, ame speed and brightness may be turned on and adjusted independently.
3. Center log bed over opening between viewing panel screen and grate.
4. Cover remaining hearth area with 1/4" of lava rock (provided), if desired.

ACCESSORY INSTALLATION

OPTIONAL GLASS DOORS
Models E36L and E32L will accept bifold glass doors that are fully operable or a xed panel door that limits access to replace, (see Ac- cessories, page 25).
Installing Bifold Glass Doors
Follow these steps to install left and right operable panels:
1. With handle down, completely fold panel on its hinges.
2. With handle facing center of rebox open­ing insert lower pivot pin on door panel into hole in bottom outer edge of rebox opening (see Figure 12).
3. Keep folded door tilted and slide upper two pins into guide track below upper facial edge of rebox opening.
4. Tilt glass assembly fully vertical until outer pivot pin snaps into mounting hole in up­per spring clip.
5. Once top and bottom pins are secured, unfold door into closed position.
6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 for opposite door assembly.
7. To adjust doors, slide partially open. Using a Phillips screwdriver, loosen hold­down screws on spring clips (see Figure
13).
8. Close both doors until evenly joined at middle and note gap as measured to outer edges of front face.
9. Reopen each door one at a time and retighten the hold-down screw while pre­serving noted gap at each edge.
10. Repeat process until both doors are even­ly joined, spaced and working freely.

Removing Bifold Glass Doors
Bifold doors may be removed for replacing or cleaning.
1. Partially open each door and press up on upper spring clip with a screw driver until outer top pivot pin is free of the clip.
2. Fully fold frame assembly and slide upper edge towards center of rebox opening until the guide pins are free of the frame rail (see Figure 12, page 8).
Installing Series Fixed Glass Doors
1. Hold glass door rmly at both handles and insert top pins into clips located below up­per facial edge of rebox opening. Make sure top pins snap securely into holes on spring clips (see Figure 14).
2. Push up on glass against tension of spring clips. Swing lower door into face until lower pins clear bottom rail and set into locating holes on each end (see Figure 14).
Note: If pins do not align into spring clips, slightly loosen retaining screws on each clip (see Figure 13, page 8). Reinsert panel into each spring clip and align panel into lower locating holes. Remove panel, nish tighten screws and reinsert panel.

OPTIONAL BRICK LINERS
Installing or Removing Brick Liner Kits
Brick liner kits are availab le for Models E36/32(L)(H) (see Accessories, page 25). These brick panels may be installed anytime after replace installation is complete.
Follow these steps to install left and right brick panels:
1. Remove glass doors (if equipped). Follow instructions under Optional Glass Doors, page 8.
2. Remove each retaining screw holding screen rods and pull entire screen and rod assembly out of locating hole on inside top edge of rebox (see Figure 15).
3. Remove log bed from hearth pan and place in a safe area. Log bed is attached with contact magnets only.
4. Remove two screws holding each refrac­tory bracket to rebox. Pull up and lift out of positioning slot at bottom of hearth pan (see Figure 16, page 10).
Note: E36L and E36LH models require
removal of additional hearth brackets and face panels which are held in place by 2 screws on hearth pan and one screw at top retainer bracket (see Figure 16, page 10).
