GENERAL INFORMATION

These vented decorative gas log sets incorporate uni-body constructed ceramic fiber logs and ember bed burner which glow realistically when the ap pliance is in operation.
These units are remote controlled-decorative rated and are equipped with millivolt gas valves. The remote control allows for flame height adjustment, timer and on/off control.
A spark ignition system (piezo) allows the gas pilot to be lit without the use of matches or bat teries and permits operation of the heater during a power outage.
These log sets come with a Floor Media Kit in cluded. This kit is used to blend the floor and the log set together for a more natural look.
CAUTION: This heater creates warm air currents. These currents move heat to wall surfaces next to heater. Installing heater next to vinyl or cloth wall coverings or operating heater where impurities (such as, but not limited to, to­bacco smoke, aromatic candles, cleaning fluids, oil or kerosene lamps, etc.) in the air exist, may discolor walls or cause odors.
WARNING: Special care is required if you are installing the unit into a sunken fireplace. You must raise the fireplace floor to
-
allow access to gas log controls. This will insure adequate air flow and guard against sooting. Raise the fireplace floor using noncombustible material.
-
CHECK GAS TYPE
Use the correct gas type (natural or propane/LP) for your unit. If your gas supply is not correct, do not
­instal in fireplace. Call dealer where you bought
the appliance for proper type of appliance.

VENTING SPECIFICATIONS FOR INSTALLATION
The fireplace chimney flue and vent must be draft ing properly. To check the vent for proper drafting: Light a tightly rolled newspaper on one end and place it at the inside front edge of the fireplace. Observe the smoke and be sure the vent is properly drawing it up the chimney. If the smoke spills out into the room, extinguish the flame and remove any obstruction until proper venting is achieved.
The chimney flue damper must be fixed open to provide a minimum of 29 square inch flue opein ing at all times during operation of the log set. A damper clamp can be used to secure the damper (see Accessories, page 18). See the National Fuel
Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Section 6.6
details about minimum flue size.
INSTALLING DAMPER CLAMP
Secure the damper stop clam to the edge of the damper as shown in Figure 2. If for any reason this clamp doesn't work on your fireplace, another suit able clamp or permanent stop must be iinstalled, or the damper blade must be cut or removed.

CONNECTING TO GAS SUPPLY
WARNING: A qualified service person must connect heater to gas supply. Follow all local codes.
Installation Items Needed
Before installing heater, make sure you have the items listed below.
-
• external regulator (propane/LP models only)
• piping (check local codes)
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• equipment shutoff valve
• test gauge connection
• sediment trap
• tee joint
• pipe wrench
-
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 pres sure, heater regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 3. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
WARNI N G : Co n n ec t i ng directly to an unregulated pro pane/LP tank may cause an explosion.
