VENTING SPECIFICATIONS FOR INSTALLATION
The replace chimney ue and vent must be draft­ing 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 replace. 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 ame and remove any obstruction until proper venting is achieved.
The chimney ue must have a minimum free air opening of 43" during operation of this log set. A damper clamp is provided to x the damper in position.
The minimum ue sizes shown in Figure 2 are based on a 6' chimney height using round pipe. Your minimum ue size will vary based on input rate and chimney height. Refer to the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Section 6.6, for details.
INSTALLING DAMPER CLAMP
Secure the damper stop clamp to the edge of the damper as shown in Figure 4. If for any reason this clamp doesn't work on your replace, another suit­able clamp or permanent stop must be installed, or the damper blade must be cut or removed.
