WARNING: ANY CHANGE TO THIS UNVENTED ROOM HEATER OR ITS CONTROLS CAN BE DANGEROUS. IMPROPER INSTALLATION OR USE OF THIS HEATER CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH FROM FIRE, BURNS, EXPLOSION OR CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING.

WARNING: THESE APPLIANCES ARE DESIGNED TO OPERATE ON NATURAL OR PROPANE GAS ONLY. THE USE OF OTHER FUELS OR COMBINATION OF FUELS WILL DEGRADE THE PERFORMANCE OF THIS SYSTEM AND MAY BE DANGEROUS.

Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to the flu with headaches, dizziness and/or nausea. If you have these signs, obtain fresh air immediately. Turn off the gas supply to the heater and have the Unvented Gas Heater serviced as it may not be operating correctly.

Due to high temperatures, the heater should be located out of traffic and away from furniture and draperies.

Children and adults should be alerted to the hazard of high surface temperatures and should stay away to avoid burns or clothing ignition.

Young children should be carefully supervised when they are in the same room with the heater.

Do not place clothing or other flammable material on or near the heater for the purpose of drying.

Installation and repair should be done by a qualified service person. The heater should be inspected before use and at least annually by a professional service person. More frequent cleaning may be required due to excessive lint from carpeting, bedding material, etc. It is important that control compartments, burners and circulating air passageways of the heater be kept clean.

Allow the heater to cool before servicing. Always shut off any electricity or gas to the heater while performing service work.

Do not install the VF5000 and VF6000 series heaters in a bedroom or bathroom.

The installation must conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1.

The heater and its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system while performing any tests of the gas supply piping system at pressures in excess of 1/2 psig.

The heater must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig.

Any safety screen or guard removed for servicing the heater must be replaced prior to operating the heater.

Keep heater area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.

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.

Test gage connections are provided on the front of the gas control valve (identified A for the manifold side and E for inlet pressure).

Input ratings are shown in BTU per hour and are for elevations up to 7,000 feet. Operating heater above elevations of 7,000 feet may cause ODS pilot outage.

Ensure that the heater is clean when operating. Excessive dust accumulation on the burner and logs will increase the amount of carbon monoxide formation and could lead to carbon monoxide poisoning and death.

CODES

Adhere to all local codes or in their absence the latest edition of The National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 or NFPA54 which can be obtained from The American National Standards Institute, Inc. (1430 Broadway, New York, NY, 10018) or National Fire Protection Association, Inc. (Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA, 02269).

Massachusetts And New York Requirements

These appliances are approved for installation in the following USA locations listed in the following:

NOTE: DIAGRAMS & ILLUSTRATION NOT TO SCALE.

Massachusetts:

These fireplaces are approved for installation in the US state of Massachusetts if the following additional requirements are met-

Installation and repair must be done by a plumber or gas fitter licensed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The flexible gas line connector used shall not exceed 36 inches (92 centimeters) in length.

The individual manual shut-off must be a T- handle type valve.

Vent-Free appliances may NOT be installed in bedrooms or bathrooms.

A working smoke detector must be installed in the area where vent-free appliances are installed.

Seller of unvented propane or natural gasfired supplemental room heaters shall provide to each purchaser a copy of 527 CMR 30 upon sale of the unit.

New York:

These appliances are approved for installation in the US state of New York, but not in New York City.

COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION AIR

These heaters shall not be installed in a confined space. The heater may be located in unusually tight construction provided the space is unconfined, or if confined, is provided with two permanent openings communicating directly with an additional room(s) of sufficient volume so that the combined volume of all connected spaces meets the criteria for an unconfined space, (National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1 (latest edition), Section 5.3). Generally 50 ft 3 per 1,000 BTU input of all operating appliances in the space.

The National Fuel Gas Code defines a confined space as a space whose volume is less than 50 ft 3 per 1,000 BTU/Hr (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space and an unconfined space as a space whose volume is not less than 50 ft 3 per 1,000 BTU/Hr (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space.

Rooms communicating directly with the space in which the appliances are installed, through openings not furnished with doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.

3

Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where:

a.wall and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder with a rating or one perm or less with openings gasketed or sealed, and

b.weather stripping has been added on operable windows and doors, and

c.caulking or sealants are applied to areas such as joints around window and door frames, between sole plates and floors, between wallceiling joints, between wall panels, at penetrations for plumbing, electrical, and gas lines, and at other openings.

Use the following equations to determine if you have a confined or unconfined space.

1. Determine the volume of space — ft 3.

Length x Width x Height = _____ ft 3 (Include adjoining rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grills between rooms.)

Example: 24' (L) x 16' (W) x 8' (H) = 3072 ft 3

2.Divide the volume of space by 50 ft 3 to determine the maximum BTU/Hr the space can support.

______ (volume of space – ft 3)/ 50 ft 3 = (Maximum BTU/Hr the space can support)

Example: 3072 ft 3 / 50 ft 3 = 61.44

or 61,440 BTU/Hr the space can support.

3.Add the BTU/Hr of all the fuel burning appliances in the space.

(actual amount of BTU/Hr used)

The space in the above example is a confined space because the actual BTU/Hr used is more than the maximum BTU/Hr the space can support. You must provide additional fresh air.

WARNING: IF THE AREA IN WHICH THE HEATER MAY BE OPERATED IS SMALLER THAN THAT DEFINED AS AN UNCONFINED SPACE, PROVIDE ADEQUATE COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION AIR BY ONE OF THE METHODS DESCRIBED IN THE NATIONAL FUEL GAS CODE, ANSI Z223.1 1992, SECTION 5.3 OR APPLICABLE LOCAL CODES.

Your options are:

a.Rework equations adding the space of adjoining room(s). If the extra volume provides an unconfined space, then remove door or add ventilation grills between rooms. Refer to National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 1992, Section 5.3.

b.Vent room directly to the outdoors. Refer to National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 1992, Section 5.3.

c.Install a lower BTU/Hr heater, such as the 25,000 BTU/Hr, to make the area an unconfined space.

If the actual BTU/Hr used is less than the maximum BTU/Hr the space can support, then the space is an unconfined space. You will need no additional fresh air ventilation for an unconfined space.

NOTE: DIAGRAMS & ILLUSTRATION NOT TO SCALE.

LOCATION OF FIREPLACE

Carefully select the best location for installation of your VF5000 and VF6000 series Unvented Room Heater. The following factors should be taken into consideration:

Clearance to side wall, ceiling, woodwork and windows.

Location must not be affected by drafts caused by kitchen exhaust fans, return air registers for forced air furnaces/air conditioners, windows or doors.

Installation must provide adequate ventilation and combustion air.

Do not install the VF5000 and VF6000 series heaters in a sleeping room or bathroom.

Never obstruct the front opening of the heater or restrict the flow of combustion and ventilation air.

This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket manufactured (Mobile) Home, where not prohibited by state or local codes.

*Aftermarket: Completion of sale, not for purpose of resale, from the manufacturer.

Minimize modifications to existing construction. Refer to Figure 1 for location suggestions.

Figure 1

To ensure even heat distribution, it is best to position the heater centrally against the longest wall of the room. Make sure there is adequate ventilation where the heater is installed. The gas appliance will shut off if the oxygen level falls below 18.0%.

These appliances are uniquely suited for installations requiring a utility shelf positioned directly above the fireplace. Utility shelves like these are commonly used for locating television sets and decorative plants.

To provide for the lowest possible shelf surface, combustible materials used to support a utility shelf directly above these appliances should be positioned just above the appliance top spacers. The minimum height from the base of the VF5000 to the underside of combustible materials used to construct a utility shelf is 34-1/2” (876 mm). The minimum height from the base of the VF6000 to the underside of combustible materials used to construct a utility shelf is 39-1/2” (1003 mm).

The appliance should be mounted on a fully supported base extending the full width and depth of the unit. The appliance may be located on or near conventional construction materials. However, if installed on combustible materials, such as carpeting, vinyl tile, etc., a metal or wood barrier covering the entire bottom surface must be used.

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

WARNING: MAINTAIN MINIMUM CLEARANCES.

Do not install in the vicinity of gasoline or other flammable liquids. The heater must be kept clear and free from these combustible materials and may not be located near where they are stored.

PREINSTALLATION

Check that all listed parts have been received.

Carefully inspect the heater case and contents for shipping damage and immediately inform the dealer from whom you purchased the gas fireplace if any damage is found.

The appliance is shipped with all gas controls and components installed and pre-wired. Remove the shipping carton, exposing the optional (if installed) front glass door frame.

NOTE: DIAGRAMS & ILLUSTRATION NOT TO SCALE.

Remove wood slats and remove and discard the wood slat mount brackets. Loosen and remove the three (3) 1/4"-20 x 1" Phillips pan head screws at the three (3) tabs located along the door frame top edge. Tilt the glass door frame assembly outward and disengage the three (3) tabs along the bottom of the door from the three (3) brackets at the bottom of the firebox opening. Remove the door and set the panel aside protecting it from inadvertent damage. Retain the three (3) screws for use on reassembly. Remove the logs, packaged inside the firebox, and also set aside.

Check Gas Type

This appliance can only be connected to the gas type specified on the appliance data plate. This appliance can not be modified in the field for a different gas type. If the gas type to be used is not the one specified contact the dealer to obtain the correct gas appliance.

Note: Illustrations shown in this manual reflect “typical” installations with nominal dimensions and are for design and framing reference only. Actual installations may vary due to individual design preferences. However, always maintain minimum clearances to combustible materials and do not violate any specific installation requirements.

Note: The following steps represent the normal sequence of installation. Each installation is unique, however, and might require a different sequence.

CAUTION: HEATERS CREATE 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 IN THE AIR (SUCH AS TOBACCO SMOKE) EXISTS, MAY DISCOLOR WALLS.

Step 1. Position heater in desired location (freestanding, onto surround base or into prepared framing) and secure.

Step 2. Plumb gas line. (Gas connections should only be performed by an experienced, licensed/ certified tradesman.)

Step 3. Assemble logs and test flame appearance.

Step 4. Complete finish wall material, surround and optional hearth extension to your individual taste.
