Soft wall coverings (e.g. embossed vinyls etc.) are easily affected by heat. They may, therefore, scorch or become
discoloured when close to a heating appliance. Please bear this is mind when having a heating appliance installed and
when redecorating.
As with any gas fire, this appliance must be installed by a competent person in accordance with the latest edition of the
Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations and in accordance with the installation guide supplied with this appliance.
A shelf made of wood or other combustible material may be fitted above the fire provided that the following conditions
are satisfied:For a shelf not more than 150mm deep, there is at least 75mm clearance above the extreme top surface of the fire. For a
shelf of greater depth, there is an additional clearance of 12.5mm for each extra 25mm of added shelf depth.
Please bear this in mind if you alter the room.
A minimum clearance of 140mm should be maintained at the right side of the fire to allow easy access to the control
knob and 75mm at the left side to allow access to the knurled nut for removal of the outer case.
Never throw paper or other material on the fire.
The fire should not be used without the coal bed in its correct position or with a damaged coal bed.
The fire must never be used without the glass panel in position or with damaged glass. If the glass is damaged the fire
should be switched off and not used until the glass is replaced.
The glass panel acts as a fireguard conforming to BS 1945: 1971 and satisfies the H eating Appliance (Fireguard)
(Safety) Regulations 1991 but does not give full protection for young children, the elderly or the infirm. Extra security
can be provided by fitting a fireguard which complies with the requir ements of BS 6539 (Fireguards for use with Solid
Fuel Appliances) 1984. Such a fireguard is also recommended for the pr otection of pet animals.
The glass panel, and areas surrounding the firebox become very hot when the fire is in use. Always switch the fire off
and allow to cool before handling.
No attempt should be made to clean the bright metal interior of the firebox with metal polish or other abrasives. After a
little use the interior of the firebox will colour. This is quite no rmal.
Never obstruct any of the openings of the fire casing by hanging clothing, towels etc. over them.
This appliance is fitted with a device which will automatically shut off the supply of gas to the fire if, for any reason, the
burner goes out. If this device does operate or if the fire is turned o ff accidentally or intentionally, always wait three
minutes before attempting to relight.
The flue terminal on the outside wall must be kept free from all obstr uctions and blockages.
Please Note
When your fire is operated for the first tim e, som e vapours
m ay be given off which m ight cause a slight odour and
could possibly set off any sm oke alarm s in the im m ediate
vicinity. These vapours are quite norm al with new
appliances. They are totally harm less and will disappear
after a few hours use.
Glass Window
As with all windows, the glass m ay need to be cleaned
both outside and inside from tim e to tim e. The window
and fram e on this appliance has, therefore been designed
to be custom er rem ovable allowing you to clean it without
having to call in a service engineer. Details of how to
rem ove the window unit are given further on in this
booklet.

Thank you for choosing this Valor gas fire. It has been designed to give years of trouble-free service. To maintain its optimum
performance, advantage should be taken of the regular servicing and inspection facilities available for gas appliances. Annual
servicing is recommended. These instructions are provided to help you in operating and looking after your new fire and should be
kept in a safe place together with the installation and servicing instructions for future reference.
PLEASE OBSERVE THE CAUTION STATEMENTS ON PAGE 1
1.
GENERAL SPECIFICATION
The fire has a maximum gas input of 4.9kW.
The overall dimensions are shown in Figure 1.
Fig. 1 O verall dimensions
2.
OPERATION
2.1
The pilot may be left alight. It is advisable, however, that the pilot is turned
off if the premises are to be left unoccupied for a lengthy period.
2.2
For your safety the fire is fitted with a Flame Supervision D evice which will
shut off the gas supply if for any reason the pilot goes out. This device incorporates a
fixed probe which senses the heat from the pilot flame. If the probe is cool the device
will prevent any gas flow unless the control knob is held down. (see the following
lighting instructions).
2.3
To light the pilot
Warning: If the pilot flame is extinguished either intentionally or unintentionally, do not
attempt to relight the gas until at least 3 minutes have elapsed.
2.3.1
Depress the control knob. While keeping it depressed, turn to IGN position.
Turning the control should normally cause two consecutive sp arks to occur
which should ignite the pilot gas. A click should be heard while turning each
time a spark is generated. The pilot flame can be seen by looking through the
gap at the front of the right side front coal - see figure 3.
2.3.2
When the pilot is alight, keep the control knob depressed for a few
seconds to prevent the flame supervision device from shutting off the gas
supply while its probe warms up, as explained above, then release it. If the
pilot does not remain alight turn the knob back to OFF, wait a few seconds
and repeat the lighting sequence.
2.4
To select burner setting.
When the pilot is alight, partially depress the knob and turn to position 1.
Both main and decorative flame burners should light at their lowest setting.
The decorative flames should just be visible.

Fig. 3 Pilot Viewing O pening
Turn the control knob gradually to your desired setting. Both burne rs should gradually increase in output until at MAX
position the main burner is at its greatest heat output and the decorative flames are at their full magnitude.
2.5
To turn off
2.5.1
To turn the main and decorative flames off but leaving the pilot alight, depress the control knob partially, turn
clockwise to IGN and release the knob. If any resistance is felt at position 1 when turning, release the downwards pressure
on the knob before continuing to turn.
2.5.2
To turn the pilot off, depress the control knob at the IGN position, turn clockwise to OFF and release the knob.
3.
CLEANING
All cleaning should be carried out when the fire is cold. Normally, the fire should only need dusting. Any stains on the
glass can be removed with a non abrasive cleaner such as a ceramic hob cleaner. Abrasive cleaners should never be used.
