SAFETY INFORMATION

IMPORTANT: Check local codes before installing this replace.
Before beginning the installation of the replace, read these instructions through completely.
• This DESA replace and its components are safe when installed according to this installation manual. Unless you use DESA components, which have been designed and tested for the replace system, you may cause a re hazard.
• The DESA warranty will be voided by and DESA disclaims any responsibility for the following actions.
a. Modication of the replace, components,
doors, air inlet system and damper control.
b. Use of any component part not manufac-
tured or approved by DESA in combination
with a DESA replace system. Proper installation is the most important step in ensuring safe and continuous operation of the replace. Consult the local building codes as to the particular requirements concerned with the installation of all factory built replaces.
WARNING: Do not install a
replace insert in this box unless
the manufacturer's instructions
with the insert specically state this replace has been tested for
use with this insert.
FOR YOUR SAFETY
• Do not store or use gasoline
or any other ammable vapors
or liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
• Due to high temperatures, the appliance should be located
out of trafc and away from
furniture and draperies.
• Do not place clothing or other
ammable materials on or near
the appliance.
• Never leave children unat-
tended when a re is burning in the replace.
WARNING: Use solid wood
or processed solid fuel relogs
only. When processed wood fuel
re logs are used, do not poke or
stir the logs while they are burn-
ing. Use only re logs that have
been evaluated for the application
in replace and refer to re log
warnings and caution markings on packaging prior to use.
This replace is not intended to be
used as a substitute for a furnace
to heat an entire home. Use for
supplemental heat only.

FIREPLACE INSTALLATION

SELECTING LOCATION
To determine the safest and most efcient location for the replace, you must take into consideration
the following guidelines:
1. The location must allow for proper clearances (see Figures 1 and 2).
2. Consider a location where the replace will not be affected by drafts, air conditioning ducts, windows or doors.
3. A location that avoids the cutting of joists or roof rafters will make installation easier.
4. An outside air kit is available with this replace (see Optional Outside Air Kit on page 8).
MINIMUM CLEARANCE TO COMBUSTIBLES
Back and sides of replace 3/4" minimum*
Floor** 0" minimum
Perpendicular wall to opening 12" minimum
Top spacers 0" minimum
Mantel clearances
Chimney outer pipe surface 1" minimum
* Not required at nailing anges ** See step 2 of Framing
WARNING: Do not pack re­quired air spaces with insulation or other materials.
Minimum/Maximum Chimney Height for
Residential Installation
The minimum height of the chimney, measured from the base of the replace to the ue gas outlet of the termination, is 14.5 feet for straight ue or a ue with one elbow set. The maximum distance between elbows is 6 feet. For systems with two elbow sets, the minimum height is 22 feet. The maximum height of any system is 50 feet. This measurement includes the replace, chimney sec­tions and the height of the termination assembly at the level of the ue gas outlet (see Figure 18, page 11).
Minimum/Maximum Chimney Height for
Outdoor Installation
The minimum height of the chimney, measured from the base of the replace to the ue gas outlet of the termination, is 7 1/2 feet (minimum of 4 feet of chimney pipe sections required for outdoor installation).
see Mantels, page 5

FRAMING
1. Frame the opening for the replace using the dimensions shown in Figures 1 and 2.
2. If the replace is to be installed directly on carpeting, tile (other than ceramic) or any combustible material other than wood oor­ing, the replace must be installed upon a metal or wood panel extending the full width and depth of the replace.
3. Set the replace directly in front of this open­ing and slide the unit back until the nailing anges touch the side framing.
4. Check the level of the replace and shim with sheet metal if necessary.
5. Before securing replace to prepared fram­ing, the ember protector (provided) must be placed between the hearth extension (not supplied) and under the bottom front edge of the replace to protect against glowing embers falling through. If the replace is to be installed on a raised platform, a Z-type ember protector (not supplied) must be fabricated to t your required platform height. The ember protector should extend under the replace a minimum of 1 1/2". The ember protector should be made of galvanized sheet metal (28 gauge minimum) to prevent corrosion.
6. Using screws or nails, secure the replace to the framing through anges located on the sides of the replace.

DRAIN PAN (DP36)
For outdoor installations, the replace enclosure must allow for adequate drainage and fresh air ventilation. It is recommended that a sealed, corro­sion resistant catch pan with provision for drainage be installed under the replace within the replace enclosure (see Accessories on page 16).
HEARTH ExTENSION
A hearth extension projecting a minimum of 16" in front of and a minimum of 8" beyond each side of the replace opening is required to protect combustible oor construction in front of the re­place. Fabricate a hearth extension using a material which meets the following specications: a layer of noncombustible, inorganic material having a thermal conductivity of K=0.84 BTU IN/FT, HR. F (or less) at 1" thick. For example, if the material selected has a K factor of 0.25, such as glass ber, the following formula would apply:
0.25 x 1.0" = 0.30" thickness required
0.84
Thermal conductivity "K" of materials can be obtained from the manufacturer or supplier of the noncombustible material. If the hearth extension is to be covered, use noncombustible material such as tile, slate, brick, concrete, metal, glass, marble, stone, etc. Provide a means to prevent the hearth extension from shifting and seal gap between the replace frame and hearth extension with a non­combustible material (see Figure 3).
WARNING: Hearth extension
is to be installed only as shown
in Figure 3.

MANTELS
A mantel may be installed if desired (see Figure
4). Woodwork such as wood trims, mantels or
any other combustible material projecting from the front face must not be placed within 12" of the fireplace opening. Combustible materials above 12" and projecting more than 11/2" from the replace must not be placed less than 15" from the top opening of the replace (NFPA STD 211, Sec. 7-3.3.3).
Mantels or any other combustible material also may come up to the side edge of the black metal face of the replace just as long as the projection from the front face fall within the limit shown in Figure 4.

VENTING INSTALLATION

OPTIONAL OUTSIDE AIR KIT (MODEL AK4/AK4F)
The installation of an outside air kit should be per­formed during the rough framing of the replace due to the nature of it's location. Outside combus­tion air is accessed through a vented crawl space (AK4F) or through a sidewall (AK4).
CAUTION: Combustion air
inlet ducts shall not terminate in attic space.
Secure to Collars with Metal Tape, Screws or Straps (Min. of 1/4" x 20" in size)

CHIMNEY PIPE
The DESA chimney system consists of 12", 18", 24", 36" and 48" snap-lock, double-wall pipe segments, planned for maximum adaptability to individual site requirements. Actual lengths gained after tting overlaps must be taken into consideration (lineal gain) and are given in the lineal gain chart (see Figure 6). Lineal gain is the actual measurable length of a part after two or more parts are connected. For Canada, use chimney parts designated "HT".
WARNING: The opening in the
collar around the chimney at the
top of the replace must not be
obstructed. Never use blown insula-
tion to ll the chimney enclosure.

ASSEMBLY AND INSTALLATION OF DOUBLE WALL CHIMNEY SYSTEM
Each double wall chimney section consists of a galvanized outer pipe, a stainless steel inner ue pipe and a wire spacer. The pipe sections must be as­sembled independently as the chimney is installed. When connecting chimney directly to the replace, the inner ue pipe section must be installed rst with the lanced side up. The outer pipe section can then be installed over the ue pipe section with the hemmed end up. Press down on each pipe section until the lances securely engage the hem on the re­place starter. The wire will assure the proper spacing between the inner and outer pipe sections.
