Installation Instructions
General Information
The gas log fires must be installed by a licensed gas fitter in accordance with requirements set out in
AS5601.1:2010 and any applicable building code regulations.
The ODGSR Series are radiant gas log fires and are designed for outdoor installation only and must
be located so it is protected from rain.
Do not burn wood or other materials in this appliance. These units are available for use on either
Propane or Natural gases. Refer to the appliance data plate for correct gas type, gas consumption,
gas pressure and injector size details.
Contact Rheem Australia if any parts are damaged or dislodged during shipment.
Ventilation Requirements
Adequate combustion and ventilation air must be provided. The flow of combustion and ventilation air
MUST NOT be obstructed.
NOTE: THIS APPLIANCE MUST NOT BE INSTALLED OR USED INDOORS
This appliance shall only be used in an above ground, open-air situation with natural ventilation,
without stagnant areas, where gas leakage and products of combustion are rapidly dispersed by wind
and natural convection.
Any enclosure in which the appliance is used shall comply with one of the following:
An enclosure with walls on all sides but at least one permanent opening at ground level and no
overhead cover (and protected from rain).
Within a partial enclosure that includes an overhead cover and no more than two walls.
Within a partial enclosure that includes an overhead cover and more than two walls with at least
25% of the total wall area completely open AND at least 30% of the remaining wall area open

Hearth
A hearth is not mandatory but is recommended for aesthetic purposes. We recommend a noncombustible hearth.
Mantels
The height that a combustible mantel is fitted above the fireplace is dependent on the depth of the
mantel. This also applies to the distance between the mantel leg (if fitted) and the fireplace.
For the correct mounting height and widths refer to Figures 2a and 2b.
Non-combustible mantels and legs may be installed at any height and width around the appliance.
Warning: When using paint or lacquer to finish the mantel, such paint or lacquer must be heat
resistant to prevent discolouration.
A minimum of 100mm above the fireplace must be non-combustible material (eg fibre
cement sheeting).

The appliance should only be mounted on the following surfaces:
A flat combustible (burnable) surface.
A raised wooden platform.
A concrete block or other solid object placed beneath each of the four corners of the appliance.
To mount the appliance:
Choose unit location.
Four (4) nailing flanges are supplied with the fireplace (located on the fireplace hearth). To level
the box and secure it firmly in place, remove the nailing flanges from the hearth and install at the
sides of the fireplace as shown in Figure 3

Valve Access
Valve can be accessed in one of two ways:
1. Remove the front panel just below the front of the hearth pan. This is accomplished by lifting on
the panel. To replace the valve access panel line up the two pins with the holes in the surround
bottom and push the panel over the hearth pan. (Refer Figure 4)
2. Lift the brick with Majestic logo on it (Refer Figure 5)
Figure 5
Figure 4
Gas Line Installation
The gas valve inlet is ½” BSP internal
(female) thread. The inlet piping
connection, sizing and appliance
isolating valve must be installed in
accordance with AS5601.1:2010
The gas inlet piping can be brought
in through the right side of the
appliance. A hole is provided to allow
for the gas pipe installation and
testing of any gas connection.
Figure 6 : Parts identification
NOTE: Test for leaks after connection. Use a 50/50 solution of liquid soap and water to test for leaks
at gas fittings and joints. Apply soapy water with a brush only – do not over apply.
WARNING: NEVER TEST WITH AN OPEN FLAME.

Operating Instructions
Log Installation
Warning: As with all plastic bags, these bags are not toys and should always be kept
away from children and infants.
1. Remove logs from packaging.
2. Place left rear log on rear support.
Ensure that log is firmly positioned and
there is no side to side movement.
(Refer to Figure 11)
3. Carefully place ember log between
grate and burner.
4. Place the front of right rear log on the
burner and the back of the log on the
rear log support.
5. Place the top logs onto the locator
notches. Ensure the logs are secure.
Figure 11
First Firing
Upon completion of the gas fitting line, a small amount of air will be trapped in the gas pipe. When
first lighting the pilot light, it will take a few minutes to purge the trapped air.
Once purging is complete, the pilot and burner will light and will operate as outlined in the instruction
manual. Subsequent lighting of the appliance will not require purging.
When lit for the first time, the appliance will emit a slight odour for an hour or two. This is due to the
paint and lubricants used in the manufacturing process.
Page 11 of 20
Flame Adjustment
For units equipped with Hi/Lo valves,
flame adjustment is achieved by rotating
the Hi/Lo adjustment knob located near
the centre of the gas control valve.
Figure 12 – SIT 820 Gas Control Knob
Flame Characteristics
It is important to periodically perform a visual check of the pilot and the burner flames (refer Figures
13 & 14).
The burner flame is checked after 5 minutes operation. It should be mainly a yellow flame with
possibly some blue flame at the base. The yellow flame should not be producing soot deposits
(insufficient air). The flame should not be excessively blue and noisy (excess air).
Figure 14
Figure 13
If any of the flames appear abnormal call
a Rheem service or your licensed service
technician.

Maintenance
Burner and burner compartment
It is important to keep the burner and the burner compartment clean. At least once a year the logs
should be removed and the burner compartment vacuumed and wiped out. Remove and replace the
logs as per the instructions in this manual.
Always handle the logs with care as they are fragile and may also be hot if the fireplace is
in use.
Cleaning the Standing Pilot Control System
The burner and control system consists of:
Main burner
Gas orifice
Pilot burner
Thermopile
Combination millivolt gas valve
Most of these components may require only an occasional check-up and cleaning and some may
require adjustment. If repair is necessary, it should be performed a qualified and suitably licensed
service technician.
In order to properly clean the burner and pilot assembly, turn off the gas to the unit, remove all logs
exposing the burner and pilot assembly. Clean all foreign materials from the top of the burner. Check
to make sure that burner parts are clean. Visually inspect pilot. Brush or blow away any dust or lint
accumulation. If the pilot injector is blocked, disassembly by a qualified service technician may be
required to remove the foreign matter.
To obtain proper operation, it is imperative that the pilot and burner’s flame characteristics are steady
not lifting or floating.
Typically the top 1 to 1.5cm of the thermopile should be engulfed in the pilot flame.
To adjust the pilot burner, turn pilot screw marked “pilot” for the proper flame size.
The aeration shutter is set at the factory and no adjustment should be necessary.
