PRODUCT FEATURES
OPERATION
This heater is clean burning. It requires no outside venting. There is
no heat loss out a vent or up a chimney. Heat is generated by realistic
dancing, yellow flames. This heater is designed for vent-free operation with flue damper closed. It has been tested and approved to
ANSI Z21.11.2 standard for unvented heaters. State and local codes
in some areas prohibit the use of vent-free heaters. This heater may
also be operated as a vented decorative (ANSI Z21.60) product by
opening the flue damper (non-thermostat operation only).
SAFETY PILOT
This heater has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensing (ODS)
safety shutoff system. The ODS/pilot is a required feature for ventfree room heaters. The ODS/pilot shuts off the heater if there is not
enough fresh air.
PIEZO IGNITION SYSTEM
This heater has a piezo ignitor. This system requires no matches,
batteries, or other sources to light heater.
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND
VENTILATION
WARNING: This heater shall not be installed in a
confined space or unusually tight construction unless
provisions are provided for adequate combustion and
ventilation air. Read the following instructions to insure proper fresh air for this and other fuel-burning
appliances in your home.
Today’s homes are built more energy efficient than ever. New
materials, increased insulation, and new construction methods help
reduce heat loss in homes. Home owners weather strip and caulk
around windows and doors to keep the cold air out and the warm air
in. During heating months, home owners want their homes as airtight
as possible.
While it is good to make your home energy efficient, your home
needs to breathe. Fresh air must enter your home. All fuel-burning
appliances need fresh air for proper combustion and ventilation.
Exhaust fans, fireplaces, clothes dryers, and fuel burning appliances
draw air from the house to operate. You must provide adequate fresh
air for these appliances. This will insure proper venting of vented
fuel-burning appliances.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE VENTILATION
The following are excerpts from National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54, Section 5.3, Air for Combustion and Ventilation.
All spaces in homes fall into one of the three following ventilation
classifications:
1. Unusually Tight Construction
2. Unconfined Space
3. Confined Space
The information on pages 4 through 6 will help you classify your
space and provide adequate ventilation.
Unusually Tight Construction
The air that leaks around doors and windows may provide enough
fresh air for combustion and ventilation. However, in buildings of
unusually tight construction, you must provide additional fresh air.
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction
where:
a. walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere
have a continuous water vapor retarder with a rating
of one perm (6x10-11 kg per pa-sec-m2) or less with
openings gasketed or sealed and
b. weather stripping has been added on openable windows and doors and

and gas lines, and at other openings.
3.
If your home meets all of the three criteria above, you
must provide additional fresh air. See Ventilation Air
From Outdoors, page 6.
If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above,
proceed to Determining Fresh-Air Flow for Heater Location, below.
* Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Direct-vent draws combustion air from the outdoors and vents to the outdoors.

Confined and Unconfined Space
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 defines a confined
space as a space whose volume is less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000
Btu per hour (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 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour
(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.
Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.

Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support with the actual
amount of Btu/Hr used.
__________________ Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
__________________ Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
Example: 51,200 Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
79,000 Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only if there are doorless
passageways or ventilation grills between them.
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. Your options are as follows:
DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW FOR
HEATER LOCATION
A.
Rework worksheet, adding the space of an adjoining room. If the
extra space provides an unconfined space, remove door to adjoining
room or add ventilation grills between rooms. See Ventilation Air From
Inside Building, page 6.
B.
Vent room directly to the outdoors. See Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 6.
C.
Install a lower Btu/Hr heater, if lower Btu/Hr size makes room unconfined.
Determining if You Have a Confined or Unconfined Space
Use this work sheet to determine if you have a confined or unconfined space.
Space: Includes the room in which you will install heater plus any adjoining
rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grills between the rooms.
1.
Determine the volume of the space (length x width x height).
If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support,
the space is an unconfined space. You will need no additional fresh air ventilation.
Length x Width x Height = ___________ cu. ft. (volume of space)
Example: Space size 20 ft. (length) x 16 ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling
height) = 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space)
If additional ventilation to adjoining room is supplied with grills or openings, add the volume of these rooms to the total volume of the space.
2.
Multiply the space volume by 20 to determine the maximum Btu/Hr
the space can support.
WARNING: If the area in which the heater may be
operated is smaller than that defined as an unconfined space or if the building is of unusually tight
construction, provide adequate combustion and ventilation air by one of the methods described in the
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 Section 5.3 or applicable local codes.
__________ (volume of space) x 20 = (Maximum Btu/Hr the space
can support)
Example: 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space) x 20 = 51,200 (maximum
Btu/Hr the space can support)

INSTALLATION
NOTICE: This heater is intended for use as supplemental heat. Use this heater along with your primary
heating system. Do not install this heater as your
primary heat source. If you have a central heating
system, you may run system’s circulating blower
while using log heater. This will help circulate the
heat from your log heater throughout the house. In
the event of a power outage, you can use this heater
as your primary heat source.
WARNING: A qualified service person must install heater. Follow all local codes.
CAUTION: This heater creates 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 (such
as, but not limited to, tobacco smoke, aromatic
candles, cleaning fluids, oil or kerosene lamps, etc.)
in the air exist, may discolor walls or cause odors.
IMPORTANT: Vent-free heaters add moisture to the air. Although
this is beneficial, installing heater in rooms without enough ventilation air may cause mildew to form from too much moisture. See
Air for Combustion and Ventilation, pages 4 through 6.
CHECK GAS TYPE
NOTICE: State or local codes may only allow operation of this appliance in a vented configuration. Check
your state or local codes.
WARNING: Before installing in a solid fuel burning fireplace, the chimney flue and firebox must be
cleaned of soot, creosote, ashes, and loose paint by
a qualified chimney cleaner. Creosote will ignite if
highly heated. A dirty chimney flue may create and
distribute soot within house. Inspect chimney flue
and firebox for damage. If damaged, operate heater
with flue damper closed.

INSTALLING DAMPER CLAMP ACCESSORY
FOR VENTED OPERATION
INSTALLING HEATER BASE ASSEMBLY
CAUTION: Do not remove the data plates attached
to the heater base assembly. The data plates contain
important warranty and safety information.
Note: When used as a vented heater, appliance must be installed
only in a solid-fuel burning fireplace with a working flue and
constructed of noncombustible material.
If your heater is a manually controlled model, you may use this
heater as a vented product. There are three reasons for operating
your heater in the vented mode.
1. The fireplace does not meet the clearance to combustibles requirements for vent-free operation.
2. State or local codes do not permit vent-free operation.
3. You prefer vented operation.
WARNING: You must secure this heater to fireplace floor. If not, heater will move when you adjust
controls. Moving heater may cause a gas leak.
WARNING: If installing in a sunken fireplace, special
care is needed. You must raise the fireplace floor to
allow access to heater control panel. This will insure
adequate air flow and guard against sooting and controls being damaged. Raise fireplace floor with noncombustible material. Make sure material is secure.
If reasons number 1 or 2 above apply to you, you must permanently
open chimney flue damper. You must install the damper clamp
accessory (to order, see Accessories, page 28). This will insure vented
operation (see Figure 11). The damper clamp will keep damper open.
Installation instructions are included with clamp accessory.
See chart below for minimum permanent flue opening you must
provide. Attach damper clamp so the minimum permanent flue
opening will be maintained at all times.
CAUTION: Do not pick up heater base assembly
by the burner. This could damage heater. Only handle
base assembly by grates.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the heater burners are level. If heater is
not level, heater will not work properly. For thermostat models,
avoid damage to thermostat bulb. Avoid nicks or sharp bends in
thermostat bulb wire. Keep thermostat bulb in mounting bracket
until ready to mount base to floor. See Optional Positioning Of

Before installing heater, make sure you have the items listed below.
• external regulator (supplied by installer)
• piping (check local codes)
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• equipment shutoff valve *
• test gauge connection *
• sediment trap
• tee joint
• pipe wrench
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT
tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge connection. Purchase
the optional CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve from
your dealer. See Accessories, page 28.
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. If you do not reduce
incoming gas pressure, heater regulator damage could occur. Install
external regulator with the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 15.
Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.

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 1/2" diameter or greater to allow proper gas volume to heater. If
pipe is too small, undue loss of volume will occur.
Installation must include an equipment shutoff valve, union, and
plugged 1/8" NPT tap. Locate NPT tap within reach for test gauge
hook up. NPT tap must be upstream from heater (see Figure 16).
IMPORTANT: Install equipment valve in an accessible location.
The equipment shutoff valve is for turning on or shutting off the gas
to the appliance.
WARNING: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant
to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
We recommend that you install a sediment trap in supply line as
shown in Figure 16. Locate sediment trap where it is within reach for
cleaning. Install in piping system between fuel supply and heater.
Locate sediment trap where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A
sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them
from going into heater controls. If sediment trap is not installed or
is installed wrong, heater may not run properly.
CAUTION: Avoid damage to regulator. Hold gas
regulator with wrench when connecting it to gas
piping and/or fittings.
Check your building codes for any special requirements for locating
equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT threads. This will
prevent excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe
could result in clogged heater valves.

READ BEFORE LIGHTING
WARNING: If you do not follow these instructions
exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing property damage, personal injury or loss of life.
A. This appliance has a pilot which must be lighted by hand.
When lighting the pilot, follow these instructions exactly.
B. BEFORE LIGHTING smell all around the appliance area
for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor because some gas
is heavier than air and will settle on the floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any phone in
your building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s
phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
C. Use only your hand to push in or turn the gas control knob.
Never use tools. If the knob will not push in or turn by
hand, don’t try to repair it, call a qualified service technician or gas supplier. Force or attempted repair may result
in a fire or explosion.
D. Do not use this appliance if any part has been under water.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect
the appliance and to replace any part of the control system
and any gas control which has been under water.
Note: Home owners generally prefer to operate their heater
with the chimney damper closed. This will put all the heat into
the room. However, there may be times you will desire the full
flames of the HI heat setting but will find the heat output
excessive. You can open the chimney damper (if you have one)
fully or partially to release some of the heat.

excessive. You can open the chimney damper (if you have one)
fully or partially to release some of the heat.

THERMOSTAT
CONTROL OPERATION
(Thermostat-Controlled Models Only)
The thermostat control knob can be set to any comfort level
between HI and LO. The thermostat will gradually modulate the
heat output and flame height from higher to lower settings, or
pilot, in order to maintain the comfort level you select. The ideal
comfort setting will vary by household depending upon the amount
of space to be heated, the output of the central heating system, etc.
Note: Selecting the HI setting with the control knob will cause the
burners to remain fully on, without modulating down in most cases.
PILOT FLAME PATTERN
Figure 43 shows a correct pilot flame pattern. Figure 44 shows an
incorrect pilot flame pattern. The incorrect pilot flame is not touching
the thermocouple. This will cause the thermocouple to cool. When the
thermocouple cools, the heater will shut down.
If pilot flame pattern is incorrect, as shown in Figure 44
• turn heater off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 20 [manually-controlled models] or page 21 [thermostat-controlled models])

BURNER PRIMARY AIR HOLES
Air is drawn into the burner through the holes in the fitting at the
entrance to the burner. These holes may become blocked with dust,
lint, or pet hair. Periodically inspect these holes for any blockage and
clean as necessary. Blocked air holes will create soot.
MAIN BURNER
Periodically inspect all burner flame holes with the heater running. All
slotted burner flame holes should be open with yellow flame present.
All round burner flame holes should be open with a small blue flame
present. Some burner flame holes may become blocked by debris or
rust, with no flame present. If so, turn off heater and let cool, Remove
blockage. Blocked burner flame holes will create soot.

CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Turn off heater and let cool before
cleaning.
CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burner,
and circulating air passageways of heater clean. Inspect these areas of heater before each use. Have
heater inspected yearly by a qualified service person.
Heater may need more frequent cleaning due to excessive lint from carpeting, bedding material, pet hair, etc.
CLEANING BURNER INJECTOR HOLDER
AND PILOT AIR INLET HOLE
The primary air inlet holes allow the proper amount of air to mix with
the gas. This provides a clean burning flame. Keep these holes clear
of dust, dirt, lint, and pet hair. Clean these air inlet holes prior to each
heating season. Blocked air holes will create soot. We recommend
that you clean the unit every three months during operation and have
heater inspected yearly by a qualified service person.
We also recommend that you keep the burner tube and pilot
assembly clean and free of dust and dirt. To clean these parts we
recommend using compressed air no greater than 30 PSI. Your local
computer store, hardware store, or home center may carry compressed air in a can. You can use a vacuum cleaner in the blow
position. If using compressed air in a can, please follow the directions on the can. If you don't follow directions on the can, you could
damage the pilot assembly.
1. Shut off the unit, including the pilot. Allow the unit to cool for
at least thirty minutes.
2. Inspect burner, pilot, and primary air inlet holes on injector
holder for dust and dirt (see Figure 45).
3. Blow air through the ports/slots and holes in the burner.
4. Check the injector holder located at the end of the burner tube
again. Remove any large particles of dust, dirt, lint, or pet hair
with a soft cloth or vacuum cleaner nozzle.
5. Blow air into the primary air holes on the injector holder.
6. In case any large clumps of dust have now been pushed into
the burner repeat steps 3 and 4.
Clean the pilot assembly also. A yellow tip on the pilot flame
indicates dust and dirt in the pilot assembly. There is a small pilot
air inlet hole about two inches from where the pilot flame comes out
of the pilot assembly (see Figure 46). With the unit off, lightly blow
air through the air inlet hole. You may blow through a drinking straw
if compressed air is not available.

27
OPTIONAL POSITIONING OF
THERMOSTAT SENSING BULB
For Masonry and Factory-built
Metal Fireplace
If your log set cycles to pilot, but the room temperature drops to a
lower than ideal comfort level before the log set comes back on, you
may want to reposition the thermostat sensing bulb.
The thermostat sensing bulb is located near the gas valve assembly
on the mounting bracket. This location allows the thermostat to keep
the room temperature at an ideal comfort level for most fireplace
applications. For positioning the thermostat sensing bulb elsewhere, an adhesive-backed mounting clip is available.
Tools needed: 1/4" hex driver or socket
1. Remove logs. Locate the gas valve assembly and thermostat
sensing bulb (see Figure 47).
2. With 1/4" hex driver or socket, loosen the thermostat screw.
Carefully slide the thermostat sensing bulb out of the retaining
clamp (see Figure 49).
Note: Do not remove the screw. Make sure you tighten the
screw after removing the thermostat sensing bulb.
IMPORTANT: Do not force or bend the thermostat sensing
bulb or capillary.
3. The thermostat sensing bulb may be located to the lower right
front side of fireplace. Determine location of sensing bulb, but
do not mount sensing bulb until step 5. If you have a masonry
fireplace, see Figure 50 for location. If you have a factory-built
metal fireplace, see Figure 51 for location. If your fireplace
has glass doors, position sensing bulb directly behind door gap
on right bottom side (see Figure 52).
4. The mounting clip must be a minimum of 3" from bottom of
fireplace to prevent crimping of capillary. Once you have decided on a location, clean the area thoroughly. Remove the paper backing from the adhesive on back of mounting clip. Press
the clip into the new location so that the thermostat sensing bulb
will be positioned vertically with the capillary at the bottom
(see Figure 53). Slide the thermostat sensing bulb into the clip.
IMPORTANT: Do not crimp capillary.

WARRANTY INFORMATION
KEEP THIS WARRANTY
Model
Serial No.
Date Purchased
Always specify model and serial numbers when communicating with the factory.
We reserve the right to amend these specifications at any time without notice. The only warranty applicable is our standard written warranty. We make
no other warranty, expressed or implied.
LIMITED WARRANTY
COMFORT GLOW VENT-FREE PROPANE/LP GAS LOG HEATERS
DESA International warrants this product to be free from defects in materials and components for two (2) years from the date of first purchase,
provided that the product has been properly installed, operated and maintained in accordance with all applicable instructions. To make a claim under
this warranty the Bill of Sale or cancelled check must be presented.
This warranty is extended only to the original retail purchaser. This warranty covers the cost of part(s) required to restore this heater to proper operating
condition and an allowance for labor when provided by a DESA Authorized Service Center. Warranty part(s) MUST be obtained through authorized
dealers of this product and/or DESA International who will provide original factory replacement parts. Failure to use original factory replacement parts
voids this warranty. The heater MUST be installed by a qualified installer in accordance with all local codes and instructions furnished with the unit.
This warranty does not apply to parts that are not in original condition because of normal wear and tear, or parts that fail or become damaged as a
result of misuse, accidents, lack of proper maintenance or defects caused by improper installation. Travel, diagnostic cost, labor, transportation and
any and all such other costs related to repairing a defective heater will be the responsibility of the owner.
TO THE FULL EXTENT ALLOWED BY THE LAW OF THE JURISDICTION THAT GOVERNS THE SALE OF THE PRODUCT; THIS
EXPRESS WARRANTY EXCLUDES ANY AND ALL OTHER EXPRESSED WARRANTIES AND LIMITS THE DURATION OF ANY AND
ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE
TO TWO (2) YEARS ON ALL COMPONENTS FROM THE DATE OF FIRST PURCHASE; AND DESA INTERNATIONAL’S LIABILITY IS
HEREBY LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT AND DESA INTERNATIONAL SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY
OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER INCLUDING INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
Some states do not allow a limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts or an exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages,
so the above limitation on implied warranties, or exclusion or limitation on damages may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
