The Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater, Model Nos. RADVTCB, RADVTEB, RADVTMB, RADVTBS, RADVTCH, RADVTVG, RADVTBD, RADVTBB, RADVTCG, RADVTGG, RADVTSG, RADVTCCB, RADVTCEB, RADVTCMB, RADVTCBS, RADVTCCH,RADVTCVG,RADVTCBD,RADVTCBB,RADVTCCG, RADVTCSG, is a vented gas appliance listed to the ANSI standard Z21.88-2005andCSA-2.33-2005for Vented Room Heaters, and CSA2.17-M91,Gas-FiredAppliances For Use at High Altitudes.

The installation of the Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 — latest edition and CSAB-149.1Installation Code. (EXCEPTION: Do not derate this appliance for altitude. Maintain the manifold pressure at 3.5 inches w.c. for Natural Gas and 10 inches w.c. for LP gas at maximum input.)

In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts:

All gas fitting and installation of this heater shall only be done by a licensed gas fitter or licensed plumber.

A carbon monoxide detector must be installed in the same room as the fireplace. (Refer to Regulation 248CMR 4.00 & 5.00 for more information.)

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.

Installation and replacement of gas piping, gas utilization equipmentoraccessories,andrepairandservicingofequipmentshallbeperformedonlybyaqualifiedagency,preferably NFIorWETT(Canada)certified. Theterm“qualifiedagency” means any individual, firm, corporation, or company that either in person or through a representative is engaged in and is responsible for (a) installation or replacement of gas piping, or (b), the connection, installation, repair, or servicing of equipment, who is experienced in such work, familiar with all precautions required, and has complied with all the requirements of the authority having jurisdiction.

TheRadianceDirectVentRoomHeatershouldbeinspected before use and at least annually by a qualified service agency. It is imperative that control compartments, burners, and circulating air passageways of the appliance be kept clean.

The Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater and its individual shut-offvalve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).

The Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig.

An accessible tap is located above the pilot/On-Offknob for checking the inlet pressure.

‘Direct Vent’ describes a sealed combustion system in which incoming outside air for combustion and outgoing exhaust enter and exit through two separate concentric passages within the same sealed vent system. The system does not use room air to support combustion. The Direct Vent system permits the gas appliance to be vented directly to the outside atmosphere through the side of the house or vertically through the roof.

Conventional venting systems (Natural Vent) take air from the room for combustion and vent the exhaust vertically through the roof to the atmosphere.

This appliance is approved for bedroom installations in the U.S. and Canada.

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

WARNING: Operation of this heater when not connected to a properly installed and maintained venting system can result in carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and possible death.

The Radiance Direct Vent Room Heater, when installed, must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA 70, (latest edition), or of the current Canadian Electrical Code C22.1.

Clearance Requirements

Minimum Clearances to Combustible Materials

Measure side clearances as shown in Figures 3, 4 and 5 from the outer edge of the cast iron stove top. Measure rear clearances from the outermost surface of the steel rear skirt.

The Radiance heater is approved for installation into an alcove constructed of combustible materials to the dimensions and clearances shown on the next page.

The same clearances apply in a standard parallel installation.

WARNING:

• Always maintain required clearances (air spaces) to nearby combustibles to prevent fire hazard. Do not fill air

spaces with insulation. All venting components must maintain a 1” (25mm) clearance to combustible materials. Maintain a 6” (150mm) clearance when using single wall pipe.

The gas appliance and vent system must be vented directly to the outside of the building and never be attached to a chimney serving a separate solid fuel or gas-burningappliance.

Vertical Termination

A vertical vent system must terminate no less than 8’ (2.44 m) and no more than 40’ (12 m) above the appliance flue collar. A restrictor plate (supplied) must be used, where specified, in all vertically terminated vent systems. (Refer to Figure 8) NOTE: The restrictor plate supplied with the vertical termination should be discarded. Adjust the restrictor plate according to recommendations in Figure 10. A vertically terminated vent system must also conform to the following criteria:

No more than three 90° elbows may be used.

Two 45° elbows may be substituted for one 90˚ elbow. No more than six 45° elbows may be used.

Vent must rise a minimum of 2 feet (305 mm) before offset is used.

Termination height must conform to roof clearance as specified in Figure 11.

Restrictor Plate Adjustment

for Extended Pipe Runs

The Radiance stove is shipped with a restrictor plate in the Parts Bag. Adjustments can be made by loosening the adjustment screw to allow the restrictor plate to slide up or down. (Fig. 9) A guide for usage is shown in

Figure 10.

NOTE: Some installations may require some adjustment by the installer for optimum flame appearance.

Optimum flame appearance is a flame that is not subject to tall, dirty yellow flames producing soot or flames lifting off of the ember bed ports.

Restrictor Plate Adjustment

1.Remove the screw in the back wall of the firebox.

2.Install restrictor plate as shown in Figure 9 with cut out on left side. Secure with adjustment screw.

2.Measure from center of screw to top edge of diverter (Fig. 9) to adjust plate according to guidelines in Figure 10.

3.Tighten attachment screw.

4.Install logs following log installation instructions.

Radiance Direct Vent Gas Heater

Vent Termination Clearances

When planning the installation, consider the location of the vent terminal and clearances. Some of the most common clearances to keep in mind are shown in Figure 11.

Important: All vent clearances must be maintained. Check your vent termination clearances against Figures 11 through 13.

The vent should be placed so that people cannot be burned by accidentally touching the vent surfaces when the stove is operating.

The vent termination should be located where it cannot be damaged by such things as automobile doors, lawn mowers or snowblowers and it should be located away from areas where it could become blocked by snow, etc.

Some considerations are:

Obstructions or impediments to venting.

Nearby combustible materials that could come into contact with combustion exhaust gases.

Other nearby openings {within 12” (305 mm)} through which exhaust gas could reenter the building.

All vegetation within 3’ (76 mm) that may interfere with the draft.

Other factors that influence where the installation will be sited include the location of outside walls, where additional heat may be desired in the home, where the family members gather most regularly, and perhaps most importantly, the distance limitations of the venting system.

IMPORTANT

The horizontal termination must not be recessed into the exterior wall or siding.

Horizontal vent runs must be level toward the vent termination.

Clearances around the vent termination must be maintained.

For installations using Simpson DuraVent pipe, parallel installations with minimum wall clearance have restricted access for connecting the Horizontal Vent Cap straps to the vent pipe. See the maker’s instructions for recommended installation procedures.

Your stove is approved to be vented either through the side wall, or vertical through the roof.

CFM Corporation does not require any opening for inspection of vent pipe.

Only CFM Corporation, Simpson DuraVent and Selkirk Corporation venting components specifically approved and labelled for this stove may be used.

Minimum clearances between vent pipes and combustible materials is one (1”) inch (25 mm), except where stated otherwise.

Venting terminals shall not be recessed into a wall or siding.

Horizontal venting must be installed on a level plane without an inclining or declining slope.

There must not be any obstruction such as bushes, garden sheds, fences, decks or utility buildings within 24” from the front of the termination hood.

Do not locate termination hood where excessive snow or ice build up may occur. Be sure to check vent termination area after snow falls, and clear to prevent accidental blockage of venting system. When using snow blowers, make sure snow is not directed towards vent termination area.

Location of Vent Termination

It is imperative the vent termination be located observing the minimum clearances as shown on this page.
