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 Z21.88-2005 and CSA-2.33-2005 for Vented Room Heaters, and CSA 2.17-M91, Gas-Fired Appliances 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-149.1 Installation 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-off valve 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-Off knob 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-burning appliance.

Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions included with the venting system for complete installation procedures.

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.

Use of Sealant

It is not required to apply or use sealant on the inner liner of DIRECT-TEMP. For outer wall joint sealing considerations, follow appliance manufacturer recommendations.

Joint Connection:

The pipe and elbows are assembled by inserting the outlet (male) end of a length of pipe or elbow into the inlet (female) end of an adjacent length of pipe or elbow. Make sure the outlet end is fully seated within the inlet end of the adjoining section and the gasket, located on the inner liner of the inlet section is fully enclosed by the inner liner of the outlet of the adjoining section. Push in the Lock Tab such that it becomes seated within the inward groove of the adjoining section. This locks the joint in place. (Fig. 34)

Supporting DIRECT-TEMP: Vertical Support

Vertical installations can be supported by two methods:

Simply fit the two halves of the trim plate around the cathedral ceiling support box hanging below the ceiling (overlapping if necessary) and screw them to the ceiling. Both the ceiling support and cathedral ceiling support can support a maximum of 40’ (12 m) of pipe.

Offsets:

If any offsets are necessary in the vertical system, an Offset Support (OS) should be installed directly above the upper elbow of the offset. Install by attaching the offset support band to the pipe with two #8 x 1/4” sheet metal screws (minimum ) and secure the offset support straps to surrounding structure. (Fig. 38)

Supporting DIRECT-TEMP: Horizontal Support

Horizontal runs of Direct-Temp should be supported every 4’ (122 cm) of pipe. This can be done with the use of plumbers strapping or the offset support.

Adjustable Length (AJ)

An Adjustable Length is available to accommodate installations where non-standard lengths are necessary.

The adjustable length telescopes down over a standard length of pipe and provides an extension range of 3¹⁄ ” (89 mm) to 10¹⁄ ” (267 mm). Install by sliding the inlet end of the adjustable length over the outlet end of a standard length of pipe. After positioning the adjustable length appropriately, secure it to the standard length with two (2) #8 x1/4” sheet metal screws (provided). Seal the area between both the top and bottom of the adjustable length outer wall and the outer wall of the standard length with an approved silicone sealant.

Fire Stopping

DIRECT-TEMP must be firestopped wherever it passes through floors, ceiling or walls. The only location where a firestop is not required is at the roof level. Both vertical support components with trim plates provide for firestopping. The wall thimble also acts as a firestop. AT other locations, a firestop spacer (FS) should be installed. In the attic the firestop should be placed on top of the joist framing to prevent debris from falling into the joist framing. (Fig. 39)

Horizontal Installation

1. Determine the appliance location. Refer to the appliance manufacturer’s installation instructions for clearance to combustible requirements, termination options, number of elbows, maximum length, etc. Then position the appliance and plan vent routing accordingly. Consider locating the appliance in a place where there will be no interference with wall studs, electrical wiring, conduit, plumbing pipe or other obstructions. The termination should be located at least 12” (305 mm) (Fig. 40) above grade, remain above the snow line in geographical areas that accumulate snow and be away

2.Assemble the pipe (and elbow if using) and attach it to the appliance. Plan for a level to 1/4” per foot rise (6 mm per 305 mm) (from inlet to outlet) in the horizontal system if not specified by the appliance manufacturer. Horizontal runs should be supported every 4’ (122 cm).

3.Push the appliance near the desired location. Determine the centerpoint of the penetration by locating the centerline of the outlet of the pipe with respect to the wall.

4.Frame an opening to the dimension specified in the Framing Dimension Table 1. Ensure the centerline of the pipe lines up with the center of the prepared opening unless otherwise specified by the appliance manufacturer.

NOTE: As a general rule, the wall thimble is optional in the U.S. However, there may be some manufacturers that require it. Contact the appliance manufacturer for information if uncertain. When installed in Canada, a wall thimble is required on all installations in which the vent passes through a combustible wall.

5. If required, install the outside half of the wall thimble (WT) through the opening and screw or nail in place. (Fig. 41) Seal around the perimeter of the thimble face plate on the exterior wall using an RTV silicone sealant to provide protection from possible rain infiltration. (Fig. 41)

NOTE: The wall thimble accommodates wall thicknesses of 4¹⁄ ” (114 mm) to 7¹⁄ ” (191 mm). If a larger range is needed due to a thicker wall, it is permissible to field fabricate a metal sleeve extension and attach it to the shields.

6. Install the horizontal termination to the exterior wall using four (4) all purpose screws through the holes located at each corner of the termination. Make sure the arrow (embossed on the front of the termination) is pointing up. (Fig. 42) If the house has vinyl siding,

If the wall is brick or concrete, and contains no combustible material, a 7” (178 mm) round penetration hole is adequate. The wall thimble is not required. The perforated straps of the horizontal termination provide a method of attachment. These can either be threaded through the opening or wall thimble (if used) and screwed to the pipe or removed with a pair of tin snips if not used. Use proper masonry fasteners to attach the horizontal termination to the wall.

7. If a wall thimble is used, push the pipe (which is connected to the appliance) carefully through the wall thimble until the DIRECT-TEMP pipe becomes fully engaged with the horizontal termination. If no thimble is used, place the Trim Plate (TP) on the DIRECT-TEMP pipe. Carefully push the DIRECT-TEMP pipe through the wall until fully engaged with the horizontal termination. Secure the trim plate to the wall.

NOTE: If a vertical rise is necessary on the exterior side of the building, a 14” (356 mm) and 36” (914 mm) Snorkel Termination (ST) is available. Follow the installation procedures for horizontal terminations. If the snorkel termination is to be located below grade, a window well is recommended with adequate and proper drainage as per local codes. Leave 2” (51 mm) clearance below snorkel to prevent water from entering the snorkel termination. Do not enclose the snorkel within a wall or other type of enclosure and do not back fill. Ensure that grade level slopes away from the building. (Fig. 40)

Vertical Installation (Fig. 44)

1.Determine the location of the appliance. Choose a location which provides adequate clearance from obstacles such as electrical wiring, conduit, framing members, plumbing pipe, etc.

2.After positioning the appliance, determine where the vent pipe will pass through the ceiling. This can be done by using a plum bob or a small weight attached to a string. Hold the plum bob from the ceiling moving it until it lines up with the centerline of the outlet of the appliance. Mark the position on the ceiling.

NOTE: Frame openings to the dimensions specified in the framing table for the cathedral ceiling support box (CCS), the ceiling support (SC) and wherever the firestop spacer (FS) is being used.

3.Cut and frame the appropriate sized square hole through the ceiling. Repeat the process for other ceiling penetrations as necessary.

4.Determine and mark the roof penetration in the same manner.

5.Cut a hole in the roof at this point large enough to satisfy all clearance-to-combustible requirements as specified by the appliance manufacturer’s installation instructions.

6.Install the ceiling support cathedral ceiling support box assembly, as appropriate.

7.Determine the distance from the appliance outlet to a point just above [approximately 12” (305 mm) to 24” (610 mm)] either the cathedral ceiling support box or the ceiling support plate and assemble lengths of pipe to satisfy this distance. Do not attach assembly to appliance.

8.Loosely position the support collar around the assembled lengths (flared end down).

9.From above, lower the assembled pipe sections down through the cathedral ceiling box or ceiling support plate and attach it to the appliance adapter. The support collar should then be adjusted so that when the assembled lengths of pipe are attached to the appliance, it rests on the bottom of the cathedral ceiling support box on top of the ceiling support plate.

10.Tighten the tabs of the collar. Secure the sup-

port collar by inserting three (3) #8 x 1/4” sheet metal screws through the support collar and the outer wall of the pipe.

NOTE: If the cathedral ceiling support box assembly is being used, it may be necessary to temporarily connect

2424

the assembled pipe to the appliance. Determine and mark the location of where the support collar will be attached to the pipe. Disconnect and remove assembled pipe. Attach the support collar per Step 10 (where marked) and reinstall assembly. This is due to limited space within the cathedral ceiling support box. Install any required offset supports.

11. Add lengths of pipe and firestop as necessary until assembly extends to a point above the roof which complies with local code requirements for minimum termination height and with the appliance manufacturer’s installation instructions. (Fig. 45)

NOTE: Whenever DIRECT-TEMP penetrates through a ceiling, a floor or a wall, it must be firestopped.

12.Using a level, make sure the system is perfectly vertical.

13.Slide the flashing, suitable for the roof pitch, down over the pipe protruding through the roof. Recheck orientation and use a silicone sealant around and under the perimeter of the flashing where it is in contact with the roof. Secure the flashing with roofing nails. Finish roofing around the pipe, covering the sides and upper ares of the flashing base with roofing material. However, be sure the lower unnailed portion of the base covers the roofing material.

14.Position the storm collar around the pipe and slide down until it is in contact with the flashing. Secure the storm collar by inserting the two (2) tabs into the raised slots and fold tabs back. Seal the area between the storm collar and the vent pipe with a silicone sealant to prevent rain infiltration.

15.Install the vertical termination (VC) by inserting it down into the top most section of pipe until it is fully seated. Depress lock tab to secure the cap to the pipe. NOTE: In high wind areas, it is recommended to screw termination to the pipe with two (2) #8 x 1/4” sheet metal screws. The screws should be approximately 3/4” from the bottom of the vertical termination’s galvanized collar.

Radiance Direct Vent Gas Heater

Maintenance

Your Radiance Gas Heater will provide years of service with minimal upkeep. The following procedures will help ensure that your stove continues to function properly.

Annual System Inspection

Have the entire heater and venting system inspected annually by a qualified gas technician. Replace any worn or broken parts.

Logset and Burner /

Cleaning and Inspection

Cleanliness is critical to the proper function of the heater. The logset and burner must all be kept free of dust and unobstructed by debris. Inspect these areas before each use and clean as necessary.

1.Turn the burner OFF and let the heater cool completely before cleaning.

2.Lift the Stove Front up and then swing the bottom out to disengage it from the heater shell. (Fig. 76)

3.Carefully remove the glass and frame assembly and place it out of the way on a flat, padded surface such as a counter protected by a towel.

4.Carefully inspect the Logs for damage. Contact your local dealer if any damage is evident.

5.Use a soft bristled brush to sweep dust or debris from the Logs, Pilot and Burner. Use care as the logs are fragile and susceptible to damage.

6.Replace the glass panel and frame assembly.

7.Replace the Stove Front.

Care of Cast Iron

An occasional dusting with a dry rag will help keep the painted surfaces looking new. Use high-temperature stove paints, available through your local dealer, to touch-up areas as needed. Clean areas to be painted with a wire brush and be sure to cover the logs, burner and valve assembly, glass and frame assembly. Apply the paint sparingly; two light coats of paint will give better results than a single heavy coat.

Clean porcelain enamel surfaces with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents. If necessary, use only a cleaning agent formulated especially for use on porcelain enamel surfaces.

CAUTION

TURN THE PILOT OFF BEFORE PAINTING. ALLOW THE HEATER TO COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE PAINTING.

Cleaning the Glass

WARNING: Allow the glass to cool completely before attempting to clean.

It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically. During start-up, condensation, which is normal, forms on the inside of the glass and causes lint, dust and other airborne particles to cling to the glass surface. Also initial paint curing may deposit a slight film on the glass. It is therefore recommended that the glass be cleaned two or three times with a non-ammonia household cleaner and warm water (we recommend gas fireplace glass cleaner). After that the glass should be cleaned two or three times during each heating season depending on the circumstances present.

Clean glass after first two weeks of operation.

Glass Replacement

Replace glass only with CFM Corporation approved parts. Refer to Page 43 for Replacement Parts. Refer to Figure 77 and previous instructions for removal of the damaged glass frame.

ST139a

Fig. 76 Remove the Stove Front.

4040

20012697

Figure 79

ST141

Fig. 77 Release the latches to remove the glass frame.

Gasket Replacement

The Radiance Gas Heater uses a ‘tadpole’ type gasket to seal between the glass panel and the frame. In time, this gasket can become brittle and compressed and should be replaced. New gasket is available from your dealer.

Shut off the gas supply and allow the stove to cool. Wear safety goggles and a dust mask.

1.Remove the Front, Glass Frame and Glass Panel.

(Figs. 76 & 77) Remove the old gasket. Use a razor blade to separate the glass and gasket from the frame, and to clean the glass of any remaining cement or bits of gasket. Use a cold chisel if necessary.

2.Determine the correct length of gasket by laying it out around the edge of the glass. Allow an extra 1

- 2” (25-50mm). Mark the spot to be cut. Use a utility knife.

3.Starting on a long edge, remove about 6” of the protective paper strip and apply the flat adhesive

face of the gasket around the outside-facing edge of the panel. Continue around the panel, applying about 6” at a time and being

careful to not stretch the material. Do not overlap the gasket ends. (Fig. 78)

4.Apply a thin bead of high temperature silicone rubber sealant along the inside

the glass.

corner of the glass frame, all around the perimeter. Place the flat gasketed side of the glass panel back into the steel frame. Pinch the rounded inside-facing gasket material to bulk it up.

5.Replace the glass frame and front panel as previously described.

Inspect the Vent System Annually

Have the vent system inspected annually by a qualified technician. Shut off the main gas supply before inspecting the system. Both the inner exhaust pipe and the outer combustion supply pipe must be checked to confirm that they are unblocked and in good condition.

Check the Gas Flame Regularly

To ensure that the stove is operating properly, check the flames periodically to confirm they match Figure 79. The flames will be blue during the first 15-20 minutes of operation, and will gradually turn to yellow after that.

Do not use your stove if the flame pattern differs from that shown here. Contact your Vermont Castings dealer or a qualified technician for help.
