SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING: This product contains and/or generates chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer or birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
IMPORTANT: Read this owner’s manual carefully and completely before trying to assemble, operate, or service this fireplace. Improper use of this fire­place can cause serious injury or death from burns, fire, explosions, electrical shock, and carbon mon­oxide poisoning.
DANGER: Carbon monoxide poisoning may lead to death!
This fireplace must be installed by a qualified (certified or licensed) service person. It has a sealed gas combustion chamber that uses a coaxial pipe (pipe within a pipe and having the same center) venting system. It brings in fresh air for combustion through the outer pipe and combustion gases are exhausted through the inner pipe. If the glass door assembly and venting pipe are not properly seated, connected, and sealed, carbon monoxide leakage (spillage) can occur.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning resemble the flu, with headaches, dizziness, or nausea. If you have these signs, the fireplace may not have been installed properly. Get fresh air at once! Have fireplace inspected and serviced by a qualified service person. Some people are more affected by carbon monoxide than others. These include pregnant women, people with heart or lung disease or anemia, those under the influence of alcohol, and those at high altitudes.

Location and Space Requirements
PRODUCT FEATURES
These are a few facts that can help you understand and enjoy your direct-vent fireplace:
• The CD36R dedicated rear vent is best suited for flush or corner installations when vented horizontally through an exterior wall
• The CD36T dedicated top vent is suited for any application
where height is necessary to terminate the venting system either through the roof (vertical) or to gain sufficient height and offset to vent to an outside/exterior wall (horizontal).
• The vent pipe installation is very important to allow for proper
operation. You must select the appropriate unit for your applica­ tion and follow the venting instructions to plan your installation.
• This fireplace may be installed in any room of your house provided
all local codes and these installation instructions are followed.
• Models (V)CD36R/T are equipped with a millivolt gas control
system that does not require electricity to operate. A piezo ignitor is provided to light the pilot without using matches or lighters.
• Models (V)CD36RE/TE are equipped with an electronic ignition
system that requires 120VAC to operate. An electrode ignitor automatically lights the pilot flame when the fireplace is turned on.
• All models can accept an optional circulating air blower when
120 VAC connection is supplied. If you plan to install an optional blower, do not forget to wire the fireplace outlet when framing.
• Each time you turn on your fireplace, you may notice some
amount of condensation on the inside of the fireplace glass. This is normal and will disappear after 10-20 minutes of operation.
• Your direct-vent gas fireplace system (fireplace and venting) is a
balanced and sealed gas operating unit. It is highly efficient because it uses outside air for combustion while independantly heating the indoor air.
• Your fireplace is designed to be used in zero clearance installa­ tions. Wall or framing material can be placed directly against any exterior surface on the back, sides, or top of your fireplace, except where stand-off spacers are integrally attached. If stand-
.
off spacers are attached to your fireplace, these spacers can be placed directly against wall or framing material. See framing details on page 5.
• If you plan on installing a television or entertainment center re­ cessed above your fireplace, it is recommended that you main­ tain a minimum 18” above the top of louver opening.
• When locating termination cap, it is important to observe the minimum clearances shown in Figure 10, page 7.
• If recessed into a wall, you can avoid extra framing b position­ ing your fireplace against an already existing framing member.
• Do not recess termination cap into a wall or siding.
• You may paint the termination cap with 450°F (232°C) heat­ resistant paint to coordinate with the exterior finish.
• There must not be any obstruction such as bushes, garden sheds, fences, decks, or utility buildings within 24” from the front of the termination cap.
• Do not locate termination cap where excessive snow or ice build up may occur. Be sure to clear vent terminal area after snow falls to prevent accidental blockage of venting system. When using snow blowers, do not direct snow towards vent termina­ tion area.
PRE-INSTALLATION PREPARATION
LOCATION AND SPACE REQUIREMENTS
Determine the safest and most efficient location for your DESA direct-vent fireplace. Make sure that rafters and wall studs are not in the way of the venting system. Coose a location where the heat output is not affected by drafts, air conditioning ducts, windows or doors. Figure 2 shows some common locations. Be aware of all restrictions and precautions before deciding the exact location for your fireplace and termination cap.
When deciding the location of your fireplace, follow these rules:
• Do not connect this fireplace to a chimney flue servicing
a separate solid-fuel burning fireplace or appliance.
• Do to high temperatures, do not locate this fireplace in high traf-
fic areas, windy or drafty areas, or near furniture or draperies.
• Proper clearances must be maintained.
• If your fireplace is to be installed directly on carpeting, vinyl
tile, or any combustible material other than wood, it must be installed on a metal or wood panel exttending the full width and depth of the fireplace. See Figure 3.

VENTING INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
NOTICE: fore attempting installation.
These models are tested and approved for use with DESA (direct­vent) pipe components and terminations.
The venting system must terminate on the outside of the structure and can not be attached to a chimney or flue system servicing a solid fuel or gas burning appliance. A direct-vent appliance must have its own venting system. DO NOT common vent this appliance.
These models are approved to be vented either horizontally through an outside wall or vertically through a roof or chase enclosure using the following:
• When venting system terminatates horizontally on an outside wall you may install a standoff if the termination cap is to be in­ stalled directly on combustible finish such as vinyl, wood, stucco, etc.
• Never run the vent downward as this may cause excessive tem­ peratures which could cause a fire.
• Vent pipe air space clearances to combustibles are 1” on all sides except on the horizontal sections, which require 2” clearance from the top of the pipe. Where the termination cap penetrates a combustible wall, the use of a 2 piece wall firestop is required to support the termination cap and maintain proper clearances.
• Have fireplace and selected vent components on hand to help determine the exact measurements when elbowing or offsetting. Always use wall firestops when penetrating walls and vertical firestops when penetrating ceilings, floor joists or attic spaces.
• Install hoorizontal venting with a 1/4” rise for every 12” of run towards the termination.

INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS
• Wear gloves and safety glasses for protection
• Use extreme caution when using ladders or when on roof tops
• Be aware of electrical wiring locations in walls and ceilings
The following actions will void the warranty on your venting system:
• Installation of any damaged venting component
• Unautorized modification of the venting system (Do not cut or alter vent components)
• Installation of any component part not manufactured or ap­ proved by DESA.
• Installation other than as instructed by these instructions
WARNING: must be vented directly to the outside. The venting system must NEVER be attached to a chimney serv­ing a separate solid fuel burning apppliance. Each direct-vent gas appliance must use a separate vent system Do not use common vent systems.

IMPORTANT:
portion of wall firestop. Horizontal installation using round termina­tion require exterior portion of wall firestop (see Figure 18, page 11).
1. Set the fireplace in its desired location and determine the route your horizontal venting will take. Do not secure the fireplace until all venting has been installed. Some installations require sliding the fireplace in and out of position to make final venting connections. Figures 19 through 25 on pages11 through 13 show different configurations for venting with horizontal termina­ tion that will help you decide which application best suits your installation. Check to see if wall studs or roof rafters are in the path of your desired venting route. If they are, you may want to adjust the location of the fireplace.
2. Direct vent pipe sections and components are designed with special twist-lock connections.
Twist-Lock Procedure: The female ends of the pipes have locking lugs (indentations). These lugs will slide straight into matching slots on the male ends of adjacent pipes. Push pipe sections together and twist one section clockwise approximately one-quarter turn until the sections are fully locked (see Figure
11). feet. Use wall strap for this purpose.
3. Any straight pipe section, a 45°, or a 90° elbow can be used when first connecting the venting system to the fireplace. Elbows are designed to twist lock into any of four 90° positions to direct the venting system to the desired location.
IMPORTANT:
elbows by cutting, twisting, bending, etc.
4. Assemble the desired combination of pipe and elbows to the fireplace flue collar. If there are long portions of venting run,
pipe sections may be pre-assembled and installed for convenience.
5. Carefully determine the location where the vent pipe assembly will penetrate the outside wall. The center of the hole should line up with the center-line of the horizontal vent pipe. Mark the wall for a 10 ¾” x10 ¾” square hole. Cut and frame the square hole in the exterior wall where the vent will be terminated. If the wall
being penetrated is constructed of noncombustible material, such as masonry block of concrete , a 8 ½” hole with zero clearance is acceptable (see Figure 12).

Before attaching the vent cap to exterior wall, run a bead of non-hardening mastic (pliable sealant) around the outside edges to make a seal be­ tween it and the outside wall. provided should be replaced with appropriate fasteners for stucco, brick, concrete, or other types of sidings. (See Figure 13).
Combustible Exterior Wall: For vinyl siding, stucco or wood
exteriors, a siding standoff may be installed between the vent cap and exterior wall. The siding standoff prevents excessive heat from damaging the siding materials. Siding material must be cut to accommodate standoff. Bolt the vent cap to the stand­ off. Apply non-hardening mastic around outside edge of stand­ off. Position the standoff/cap assembly in the center of the 10 ¾ square hole and attach to exterior wall with wood screws provided (see Figure 14). The siding standoff must sit flush against the exterior fascia material.

Note:
Vertical restrictor must be installed in all vertical installations.
1. Determine the route your vertical venting will take. If ceiling Joists, roof rafters, or other framing will obstruct the venting system, consider an offset (see Figure 26) to avoid cutting load bearing members. lation instructions for required clearances (air space) to com­ bustibles when passing through ceilings, walls roofs, enclo­ sures, attic rafters, etc. Do not pack air spaces with insulation. Also note maximum horizontal offset limitations.
2. Set fireplace in desired location. Drop a plumb line down from the ceiling to the position of the fireplace exit flue. Mark the center point where the vent will penetrate the ceiling. Drill a small locating hole at this point.
Drop a plumb line from the inside of the roof to the locating hole in the ceiling. Mark the center point where the vent will penetrate the roof. Drill a small locating hole at this point.
NOTE:
Pay special attention to these instal-
2. Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to reach from the fireplace flue up through the firestop. Be sure all pipe and elbow connections are fully twist-locked (see Fig- ure 11, page 9).
3. Cut a hole in the roof using the locating hole as a center point. (Cover any exposed open vent pipes before cutting hole in roof.) The 10 ¾” x 10 ¾” hole must be measured on the horizontal; actual length may be larger dependiong on the pitch of the roof. There must be a 1” clearance from the vent pipe to combustible materials. Frame the opening as shown in Figure 12, page 9.
4. Connect a section of pipe and extend up through the hole.
Note:
If an offset is needed to avoid obstructions, you must support the vent pipe every 3 feet. Use wall straps for this purpose (see Figure 26). Whenever possible, use 45º elbows instead of 90º elbows. The 45º elbow offers less restriction to the flow of the flue gases and intake air.
5. Place the flashing over the pipe section(s) extending through the roof. Secure the base of the flashing to the roof and fram­ ing with roofing nails. Be sure roofing material overlaps the top edge of the flashing as shown in Figure 26. There must be a 1” clearnace from the vent pipe to combustible materials
6. Continue to add pipe section until the height of the vent cap meets the minimum building code requirements described in Figure 10 on page 7. steep roof pitches. Nearby trees, adjoining rooflines, steep pitched roofs, and other similar factors may cause poor draft or down-drafting in high winds. Increasing the vent height may solve this problem.
7. Twist-lock the vent cap onto the kast section of vent pipe.
Note:
If the vent pipe passes through any occupied areas above the first floor, including storage spaces and closets, you must enclose pipe. You may frame and sheetrock the enclosure with standard construction material. Make sure and meet the minimum allowable clearances to combustibles. Do not fill any of the required air spaces with insulation.
Note:
You must increase vent height for
Figure 26 - Offset with Wall Strap and 45° Elbows
Flat Ceiling Installation
1. Cut a 10 ¾” square hole in the ceiling using the locating hole as a center point. The opening should be framed to 10 ¾” x 10 ¾” (273 mm x 273 mm) inside dimensions, as shown in Figure 12 on page 9 using framing lumber the same size as the ceiling joists. If the area above the ceiling is an insulated ceiling or a room, nail firestop from the top side. This prevents loose insula­ tion from falling into the required clearance space. Otherwise, install firestop below the framed hole. The firestop should be installed with no less than three nails per side (see Figure 27).
