SAFETY INFORMATION
11. Do not use this fireplace to cook food or burn paper
or other objects.
Appliance for Use with Propane Gas: Propane gas has
no odor. An odor-making agent is added to the gas. The
odor aids you in detecting a gas leak. However, the odor
added to the gas can fade. Gas may be present even
though no odor exists.
Use only propane gas. Do not convert the fireplace to use
different fuel type.
Do not place propane supply tank(s) inside any structure.
Locate propane supply tank(s) outdoors.
Make certain you read and understand all Warnings. Keep

Figure 11 - Framing/Cabinet Mounting Holes
INSTALLING GAS PIPING TO
FIREPLACE LOCATION
If installing in a corner, use dimensions shown in figure 9
for the rough opening. The height is 33" which is the
same as the wall openings, page 5.
NOTICE: A qualified person must connect fireplace
to gas supply. Follow all local codes.
2. Install gas piping to fireplace location. This
installation includes an approved flexible gas line (if
allowed by local codes) after the manual shutoff valve.
The flexible gas line must be the last item installed on the
gas piping. See Installing Gas piping to Fireplace
Location, page 6.
CAUTION: Never connect heater directly to the
propane supply. This heater requires an external

* An CSA design-certified manual shutoff valve with
1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge
connection. Purchase the optional CSA design-certified
manual shutoff valve from your dealer.
For LP gas installations, the Installer must supply an
external regulator. The external regulator will reduce
incoming gas pressure. You must reduce incoming gas
pressure to between 11 and 14 inches of water. Of you
do not reduce incoming gas pressure, heater regulator
damage could occur. Install external regulator with the
vent pointing down as shown in figure 12. Pointing the
vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.

Vent Pointing Down
CAUTION: Use only new, black iron or steel pipe.
Internally-tinned copper tubing may be used in
certain areas. Check your local codes. Use pipe
of ½” diameter or greater to allow proper gas
volume to fireplace. If pipe is too small, undue
loss of pressure will occur.

Figure 18 - Setting logs and lava rock
burner and pilot burner area for dust or carbon build-up.
This may be removed from the burner or logs with a soft
bristle brush. A visual inspection of the pilot burner and
main burner flame should be performed to verify proper
operation, refer to operating instructions for proper
adjustment. Care should be taken when cleaning and
handling logs since they become brittle with use. Small
heat cracks in the logs do not affect the operation of the
log set.
PLACING LOGS AND LAVA ROCKS
Assemble ceramic logs by placing the large base log to
the rear of grate assembly (Figure 18). Add front logs
with “burned through” features to front left and right.
Place lava rocks on center of burner. Stack top logs
vertically in center of log stack. Adjust as required to
provide realistic flame.
(Warning: If flames get trapped under logs the result
will be black soot on logs and front face of fireplace.
Take extra care to adjust logs to correct this
condition).
Cleaning Stainless Steel
General cleaning may be accomplished by using a
household cleaning solution and warm water. The
exterior may be cleaned using the same method. Badly
soiled or tarnished areas can be clean using a “scotch
brite” pad. Always scrub in same direction of material
finish.
Do not use caustic cleaners on fireplace as it may cause
damage to control and electric components.
