Table 1

The millivolt appliances are manually controlled and feature a spark ignitor (piezo) that allows the appliance's pilot gas to be lit without the use of matches or batteries. This system provides continued service in the event of a power outage.

Do not use these appliances if any part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified, professional service technician to inspect the appliance and to replace any parts of the control system and any gas control which have been under water.

Ne pas se servir de cet appareil s'il a été plongé dans l'eau, complètement ou en partie. Appeler un technicien qualifié pour inspecter l'appareil et remplacer toute partie du système de contrôle et toute commande qui ont été plongés dans l'eau.

This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket permanently located, manufactured home (USA only) or mobile home, where not prohibited by local codes. This appliance is only for use with the type of gas indicated on the rating plate. This appliance is not convertible for use with other gases, unless a certified kit is used.

Cet appareil peut être installé dans un maison préfabriquée (É.-U. seulement) ou mobile déjà installée à demeure si les réglements locaux le permettent.

Horizontal Vent Termination Clearances

The horizontal vent termination must have a minimum of 3" (76 mm) clearance to any overhead combustible projection of 2 ¹⁄ " (64 mm) or less. See Figure 5. For projections exceeding 2 ¹⁄ " (64 mm), see Figure 5. For additional vent location restrictions refer to

Figure 8 on page 6.

TYPICAL INSTALLATION SEQUENCE

The typical sequence of installation follows, however, each installation is unique resulting in variations to those described.

See the page numbers references in the following steps for detailed procedures.

Step 1. (page 5) Construct the appliance framing. Position the appliance within the framing and secure with nailing brackets.

Step 2. (page 5) Route gas supply line to appliance location.

b.Electronic Appliances – Field wire and install operating control switch.

Step 5. (page 21) Install blower kit (optional equipment).

Step 6. (page 22) Make connection to gas supply. Step 7. (page 22) Install the logs, decorative volcanic stone and glowing embers.

Step 8. (page 22) Checkout appliance operation. Step9. (page23)Installglassdoorframeassembly. Step 10. (page 23) Adjust burner to ensure proper flame appearance.

Step 11. (page 23) Install the hoods.

DETAILED INSTALLATION STEPS

The appliance is shipped with all gas controls and components installed and pre-wired. Remove the shipping carton, exposing the front glass door. Remove the top panel. Remove the cardboard from underneath the pressure relief plates. Gently depress the outer top corners of the access panel until the catches "pop" the panel free, allowing it to swing out and down to open. Open the two latches (located under the firebox floor) securing the glass door. Remove the door by tilting it outward at the bottom and lifting it up. Set the door aside protecting it from inadvertent damage. See

Figure 55 on page 23.

Step 1. FRAMING

Frame these appliances as illustrated in Figure 9 on page 7, unless the appliance is to be installed in a corner.

NOTE: DIAGRAMS & ILLUSTRATIONS NOT TO SCALE.

See Figure 10 on page 7 or Figure 11 on page 8 for corner framing installations. All framing details must allow for a minimum clearance to combustible framing members as shown in

Table 2.

If the appliance is to be elevated above floor level, a solid continuous platform must be constructed.

Headers may be in direct contact with the appliance top spacers but must not be supported by them or notched to fit around them. All construction above the appliance must be self supporting. DO NOT use the appliance for structural support.

The fireplace should be secured to the side framing members using the unit's nailing flanges - one top and bottom on each side of the fireplace front. See Figure 6. Use 8d nails or their equivalent.

Note: The nailing flanges, combustible members

and screw heads located in areas directly adjacent

to the nailing flanges, are EXEMPT from the 1/2”

clearance to combustible requirements for the

firebox outer wrapper. Combustible framing may be

in direct contact with the nailing flanges and may

be located closer than 1/2” from screw heads and

the firebox wrapper in areas adjacent to the nailing

flanges. Frame the opening to the exact dimensions

specified in the framing details of this manual.

Figure 6

Step 2. ROUTING GAS LINE

Route a ¹⁄ " (13 mm) gas line along the inside of the right side framing as shown in Figure 7. Gas lines must be routed, constructed and made of materials that are in strict accordance with local codes and regulations.

All appliances are factory-equipped with a flexible gas line connector and ¹⁄ inch shutoff valve. (See step 6 on page 22).

Step 3. INSTALL THE VENT SYSTEM

General Information

These instructions should be used as a guideline and do not supersede local codes in any way. Install vent according to local codes, these instructions, the current National Fuel Gas Code (ANSI-Z223.1) in the USA or the current standards of CAN/CGA-B149.1 and - B149.2 in Canada.

These fireplaces are designed, tested and listed for operation and installation with, andonlywith,SecureVent(SV4.5)Direct Vent System Components, Secure Flex

Flexible Vent Components manufactured by Security Chimneys International. These approved vent system components are labeled for identification. DO NOT use any other manufacturer's vent components with these appliances. These fireplaces must be vented directly to the outside.

The vent system may not service multiple appliances, and must never be connected to a flue serving a solid fuel burning appliance. The vent pipe is tested to be run inside an enclosing wall (such as a chase). There is no requirement for inspection openings in the enclosing wall at any of the joints in the vent pipe.

Preparing the Appliance Vent Collar on D-500/600/800 Series (Combined Top and Rear Vent) Models

Each of the unit's two vent collars are sealed with a cover plate and a seal plate and gasket. The cover, and seal plate and gasket must be removed from the vent collar being used. Refer to Figure 13 for top vent usage and Figure 14 for rear, and the following steps to prepare the appropriate collar for use.

From the vent collar being used, remove the four screws securing the vent seal plate and gasket. Remove and discard the seal plate and gasket.

When the top vent collar is being used, from inside the firebox, loosen the two screws in the keyhole slots of the cover plate and remove the remaining two cover plate securing screws. Remove and discard the cover plate. Reinstall and securely tighten all four screws.

When the rear vent collar is being used, from inside the firebox, remove the two screws securing the lintel to the rear wall of the firebox, then remove the lintel. Remove the four cover plate securing screws.

Remove and discard the cover plate. Reinstall and securely tighten all four cover plate screws. Re-secure the lintel to the rear wall of the firebox.

WARNING: FAILURE TO REINSTALL AND SECURELY TIGHTEN COVER PLATE SCREWS COULD RESULT IN LEAKAGE OF FLUEPRODUCTSINTOTHELIVINGSPACE. VENTCOVERPLATEANDVENTSEALPLATE MUST REMAIN SECURELY INSTALLED ON UNUSED VENT COLLAR. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN LEAKAGE OF FLUE PRODUCTS INTO LIVING SPACE.
