WARNING - RISK OF FIRE! The power cord must not be pinched or against a sharp edge. Secure cord to avoid tripping or
snagging to reduce the risk of re,
electric shock or personal injury.
Do not run cord under carpeting. Do not cover cord with throw rugs, runners or the like. Arrange
cord away from trafc areas and
where it will not be tripped over.
WARNING - RISK OF FIRE!
To prevent a possible re, do
not block air intake or exhaust in any manner. Do not use on soft surfaces where openings may become blocked.
WARNING - RISK OF FIRE!
Do not blow or place insulation
against the rebox.
WARNING: If the information
in these instructions is not fol-
lowed exactly, a re or explosion
may result causing property dam­age, personal injury or death.

Do not store or use gasoline or other ammable vapors in the vi­cinity of this or any other heater.
INSTALLING FIREPLACE
Select a suitable location that is not suscep­tible to moisture and is a safe distance from
drapes, furniture and high trafc areas.
Note: Follow all national and local electrical codes. This insert can be installed into either
an existing replace or as new construction/
renovation.
Installing in Mantel
1. Assemble mantel according to mantel instructions.
2. Locate mantel near a wall (or corner depending on mantel type) close to a power source. You may have to alter base
boards to t mantel ush against wall.
3. Insert replace into front of mantel. Be careful not to scratch nish on base. Fire­place will t ush against front of mantel.
4. Plug replace into power source. Push mantel with replace into nal location.
Existing Fireplace Installation
1. Thoroughly clean out existing replace
and hearth area.
2. Seal all drafts, vents or ash clean-outs
with berglass insulation. Seal ue. Once
sealed, close damper to stop debris from falling onto unit.
3. If existing re box is susceptible to mois­ture, cap top of chimney ue to prevent inltration of water.
INSTALLATION
Continued
Note: It is strongly advised that you hire
a qualied professional to undertake this
step in order to prevent personal injury.
Once ue is capped, chimney is no longer
suitable for wood burning.
Note: Do not install this unit into a replace
that is prone to dampness; the area of instal­lation must be dry.
4. Plan the power supply. If an existing
grounded outlet is near replace, power cord can run along front of replace. If
cord is not long enough to reach outlet, a grounded extension cord minimum AWG No. 14 and rated to a minimum of 1875 watts, may be used. If you plan to cut or drill
a hole in existing replace for wiring, it is
best to hire a professional to do this step in
order to prevent personal injury. To reduce the risk of re, do not run power cord under
rugs, carpets, etc. Arrange power supply
cord away from high trafc areas where it
may pose a tripping hazard.
WARNING: The solid fuel/gas
replace has been converted for
use with an electric insert and cannot be used for original fuels unless all original parts have
been replaced and the replace
has been reapproved by the au­thority having jurisdiction.
New Construction or Renovation
1. Select a location at least 3 feet (0.9 m) away from combustible materials such as curtains or drapes, furniture, bedding, paper, etc.
2. Mark desired location on oor and store
unit in a safe, dry and dust free location.
3. Frame in an opening leaving at least 1/4" (6 mm) around the edge of the unit (see Framing). Any new wiring must be done in compliance with local and national codes and other applicable regulations in order to
reduce the risk of re, electric shock or other injuries. Therefore, it strongly recommended
that you hire a professional to complete any such work.
4. Plan you power supply route. See step 4 of Existing Fireplace Installation.
