Creating the Cavity:
The dimensioned drawing below shows the size of opening that must be created to fit the
ST900. The wall directly above the fireplace should be finished / clad / lined after the
fireplace has been installed, unless there is an access hatch or the chase is open to the
ceiling cavity, which allows the flue to be installed after the wall has been lined.
See Appendix C at the back of this installation manual for clearances to combustible materials.
If the ST900 is installed directly on carpeting, tile or other combustible material other than
wood flooring, the appliance shall be installed on a metal or wood panel extending the full
width and depth of the appliance.
Note:
It is not necessary to
line or vent the cavity,
and it may be constructed
with timber.
Velo Fascia
The wall and framework in front of the
flue must not exceed 4” in thickness, this
includes dry wall or any other wall
linings. This is to ensure there is at least
1” gap between all flueing components
and any combustible material.

Hearth and Floor Clearances:
There must be at least 4” clearance between the bottom of the ST900 fireplace and any
horizontal surface below, for example hearths and floors.
3.1
Wall and Cabinet Clearances:
There must be a minimum of 4” clearance from the sides of the fascia to any protruding
side walls or cabinetry.
4.0
Wall Linings:
The wall board that lines the outside of this opening can be normal dry wall
(Plaster Board) and does not need to be non-combustible providing that it does not come
any closer to the fireplace than the dimensions shown in section 2.0. Note: The
temperature of the wall lining directly above the fireplace does get warm and hence may
discolour paint finishes that are susceptible to temperature damage or distort vinyl wall
coverings.
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion
5.0
Television Positioning Considerations:
It is becoming common practice for consumers to mount flat screen TV‟s above their gas
fireplace.
Most TV manufacturers have specified in their instructions that the TV should not be
installed on, near or above a heat source. For this reason TV location decisions rest solely
with the householder and Escea will not be held liable for any adverse affects on a TV
located near to an Escea fireplace that may be caused by heat.
The drawings below are suggestions that may be used as a GUIDE for those consumers
who do decide to locate their TV above an ST900 gas fireplace. These drawings show
ways to reduce the amount of warm air rising off the fireplace and onto the TV.

The material that the wall and mantle are made from will also affect the operating
temperature of the TV so it is the customers responsibility to satisfy themselves that their
TV mounting and mantle design will not exceed the listed
maximum operating temperature of their electronic goods.
5.1
Combustible Mantle Clearances:
The diagram to the right shows the minimum and
maximum allowable size for mantles or protruding
surfaces mounted above the ST900.
Note: Escea does not recommend placement of items on the
mantles shown in the diagram to the right. This is because of
the potential for items placed on or above the mantle to be
affected by the heat rising from the appliance.
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion
5.2
Non-Combustible Mantle Clearances:
If the entire installation (mantle, wall and cavity) is
constructed from non-combustible materials, the
clearances to mantles may be as shown in the shaded
area.
6.0
Corner Installations:
If a cavity is to be created in a corner,
the following drawing gives the minimum
sizes.
7.0
Laying Gas Pipe:
Gas pipe should be sized as per the requirements of relevant local or national codes. The
pipe sizing must be sufficient to deliver the following volume of gas to the fireplace with all
other gas appliances in the home running at the same time;
ST900 = 19,500 BTU/h max on Natural Gas
High Altitude Installations
When installing this appliance at an elevation above 2000 feet, it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by
changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Input rate should be reduced by 4% for each 1000 feet above a
2000 foot elevation in the U.S.A, or 10% for elevations between 2000 and 4500 feet in Canada. If the heating value
of the gas has ben reduced, these rules do not apply. To identify the proper orifice size, check with the local gas
utility.
If installing this appliance at an elevation above 4500 feet (in Canada), check with local authorities.
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion
8.0
Connecting the Gas Pipe:
An accessible inline isolation or service valve must be fitted and pipe run to the fireplace as
shown below. An inlet pressure test point must also be fitted to the inlet side of the
appliance regulator. The regulator that is supplied with the fireplace MUST NOT BE
REMOVED. Removal of the regulator, or replacing it with one not intended for use with an
Escea fireplace, will void the limited appliance warranty.
9.0
Battery-Pack Power Supply:
The ST900 runs on a battery pack. This battery pack uses 3x C cell batteries. To ensure
that only fresh batteries are used, batteries are not supplied with the fireplace.
To access the battery pack, remove the fascia (described in section 19.2) and the battery
pack will be on the lower right hand side.
The Battery Pack is secured in place with Velcro pads and may be removed by firmly
pulling upwards.
10.0
Fixing the Fireplace to the base and wall:
It is a requirement that this fireplace be
securely fastened to the wall and base. Once
the fireplace has been pushed back into the
correct position, use wood screws (or other
suitable fasteners) to fix the fireplace to the
cavity through each of the four holes in the
corners, as shown in the diagram to the right.
Note: It may be necessary to use washers on
the fasteners to securely fasten the fireplace to
the wall.
When fixing the fireplace in position ensure that
you leave a gap between the fireplace flange and the framing timber for the wall lining,
which will be added at a later stage.
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion
11.0
Removing the Firebox Glass:
Pull the four hooks shown below towards you and then away from the glass to release the
glass frame underneath the hook.
Do not operate the appliance if the glass has been broken, damaged, or the glass is
not properly positioned/hooked onto the appliance.
WARNING: Do not operate appliance with the glass format removed, cracked or broken.
Replacement of the glass should be done by a licensed or qualified service person.
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion
12.0
Installing the Flue System:
Ensure all flue components are Simpson Duravent Direct Vent Pro 5” x 8,” or a compatible
equivalent.
Note: Consult Appendix A at the end of this installation manual (section 24.0) to
ensure correct length of flue is calculated.
There are two basic types of Balanced Flue System installations:
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
Use the diagrams in sections 12.5, 12.6 & 12.7 to check if your proposed flue system is
acceptable. Section 12.9 will also need to be used to determine whether the flue terminal
location meets the requirements of ANSI Z21.88-2009 Vented Gas Fireplace Fireplaces.
Then use Appendix A to work out the quantities of the flue components that are required.
This gas appliance must not be connected to a chimney flue serving a
separate solid-fuel burning appliance
12.1
Any offsets in your flue configuration should be 45° where possible.
12.2
If your flue configuration has a horizontal run, there must be a minimum 1 ° inclination (3/4”
vertical rise per 3‟ horizontal run) leading upwards towards the termination.
Do not install the flue with horizontal sections sloping down towards the termination.
This could cause the fireplace to operate incorrectly and possibly create an unsafe
condition.
12.3
The flue must maintain the following
clearances to combustible materials;
1” from all sides and bottom of
the flue, and 2” from the top of
the flue.
12.4
If your flue configuration falls on or near a restriction zone boundary line in diagrams 12.5,
12.6 & 12.7, it may require the restriction value from either side of the boundary line to
achieve the correct flame aesthetic, this may vary from installation to installation.

Locating the Flue Terminal:
The flue terminal must be located using the information given in the following excerpt from
ANSI Z21.88-2005 Vented Gas Fireplace Fireplaces.
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion
12.10 Supporting the flue system:
Wall straps are required to fix the flue system in place for each installation. This will ensure
that no undue strain is placed on flue components once installed.
For a flue offset or horizontal run, it is recommended that wall straps be used to the flue
system with a spacing of 3‟ between straps. Plumbers strapping / tape can be used to
connect the wall straps to the building structure where there are large distances between
the support point and the anchor point.
For vertical flue runs it is recommended that wall straps be used to anchor the flue system
with a spacing of 4‟ between straps.
12.11 Sealing ‘through roof’ and ‘through wall’ penetrations:
For „through roof‟ penetrations, use a Decktite flashing or equivalent to create a weathertight seal between the flue and the roof cladding.
For „through wall‟ penetrations, this will require the use of a Wall Thimble. The Wall Thimble
will ensure you have suitable clearance from combustibles as well as sealing the
penetration. The section of the wall thimble installed on the external surface of the wall
should be sealed to the wall using a high temperature sealant such as Mill-Pac High
Temperature Sealant or equivalent. Additional sealant is required to seal the Terminal Cap
to the external wall. A bead should be run along the edge of the Terminal that will be in
contact with the wall once installed.
12.12 Twist locking procedure:
Before connecting flue components, to ensure an airtight seal run a single 1/8” wide bead of
Mill-Pac High Temperature Sealant, or equivalent, on the „male‟ end of the flue as
shown in the diagram below.
The four indentations located on the female end of the flue are designed to slide straight
onto the male ends of the adjacent flue length, by orienting the four flue indentations so
they match and slide into the four entry slots on the male ends.
Push the pipe sections completely together, then twist-lock one section clockwise
approximately one-quarter turn, until the two sections are fully locked.
Wipe off any excess sealant from the exterior of the flue joint.
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion
13.0
Fitting the Flue Restrictor:
If your flueing configuration requires that you fit a flue restrictor
(see graph in section 12.5, 12.6, 12.7 of this manual to find out
if your configuration requires a flue restrictor), follow the
instructions below.
First, prepare the Flue Restrictor by removing and discarding
the inner rings to achieve either 60% or 70% restriction as
required and hand bending the five tabs 90°
Remove the firebox glass (if
fitted), and using a Phillips /
Pozi Drive screwdriver
remove the two screws
located inside the firebox as
shown.
Once the two screws are removed the baffle will
be free to slide down and out as pictured.
Ensure the firebox paint is not scratched and
that the baffle is not damaged
Fit the flue restrictor by pushing it up into the flue
with the tabs facing downwards as shown. Push
it up into the flue until the tabs no longer
protrude into the firebox and it is securely
placed. If the restrictor is loose or will not stay in
position manipulate the five tabs to suit.
Once the restrictor is in place, replace the baffle
taking care not to damage or scrape the paint,
and replace the two screws.
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion

Converting to Propane Gas:
Where a conversion to propane gas is needed, the following steps should be followed
14.1
First you need to remove the burner by
removing the screw holding it in place on the
left hand side of the firebox (Fig. 1).
Then remove the 1.9mm burner jet (Fig. 2)
and replace it with the 1.2mm jet supplied in
the kit.
Now remove the gas pipe fitting under the
pilot (Fig. 3) and remove the No.48 pilot Jet
(Fig. 4) and replace it with the No.46 pilot jet
supplied in the kit.
Replace pilot line.
Adjust the Primary Aeration Collar on the burner to the
Propane position as shown in the diagram below, then
place the burner into position and screw it in place.
The gas regulator needs to be converted from
the Natural Gas setting to the Propane setting.
The regulator is located on the left hand side of
the control tray, at the base of the fireplace. To
change the regulator between Natural Gas and
Propane, unscrew the top cap off the regulator
and pull the plunger from it. Re-insert the plunger
on the opposite side (as shown in the diagram to

Operating Instructions:
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion
The escea ST900 remote control allows you to turn ON and OFF the fire, control the flame
height in the Manual mode, or control the room temperature in the Thermostat mode. The
remote has a maximum range of approximately 10 meters, and because the remote works
by radio frequency, it does not need to be aimed at the ST900 for it to operate. The remote
control runs off 2x AA batteries which are supplied in the same packaging as the remote.
The remote control is supplied with a wall-mount cradle; the installer should mount this at a
location determined by the customer.
20.1
Switching on the ST900:
Note: If this is the first time running the ST900 the air will need to be purged from the gas
lines. To do this, follow the instructions below to switch the fire on and then switch it
off. Repeat this up to 10 times until the pilot flame successfully sparks and ignites.
When first powered the remote starts at the OFF screen (it is possible that the remote is
locked in the OFF screen: to unlock it just press the button below Unlock, and then OK).
Switching on: Once the remote is unlocked, press On (left button) and OK (middle button).
A beep from the control unit will be heard, and the ignition process starts (the pilot will start
sparking and gas will start flowing to the pilot, which should then be lit within a few
seconds). Note that while in operation the RF signal strength indicator disappears.
Wait until the current flame status displays pilot.
If the pilot flame fails to ignite, you must turn OFF the fire from the remote and start the
process of turning it ON again.









If the Gap Temp is 0•5°C: Flame level will go to maximum level because the difference
is 2°C.
 If the Gap Temp is 1°C: Flame level will go to medium level as difference of 2°C is two
times the gap setting. (The flame level increases two levels: Pilot → Low → Medium.)
 If the Gap Temp is 2°C: Flame level will go to minimum level as the difference of 2°C is
equal to the gap setting. (The flame level increases one level: Pilot → Low.)
Programming: this option enables or disables the program mode. To enable it, select Yes.
To disable it, select No.
Fan System: This option enables or disables the fan system. To enable it, select Yes. To
disable it, select No.
Soft start: this option causes the thermostat mode to work incrementally. When the change
of flame level required by the thermostat involves more than one level, this option makes
the change step by step, with a delay of 10 seconds between each change of flame level.
To enable this option, select Yes. To disable it, select No.
Ember bed: this option enables or disables the ember bed output. To enable it, select Yes.
To disable it, select No.
Sounder: This option enables or disables the sounder option. To enable it, select Yes. To
disable it, select No.
Safety temp: This temperature is the maximum permitted room temperature. If the remote
detects that the temperature is higher than the Safety temp, the appliance is switched off.
This temperature can never be set higher than 40°C (104°F). The possible range of values
is 25-40°C (77-104°F).

21.0
Sounds and Smells:
Note: Each time the fireplace is lit from cold the glass will fog up with condensation. This is
normal and the condensation will disappear within a few minutes once the glass heats up.
21.1
Sounds:
It is possible that you will hear some sounds from your gas appliance. This is perfectly
normal due to the fact that there are various types of materials used within your appliance.
Listed below are some examples. These are all normal operating sounds and should not
be considered as defects in your appliance.
Gas Control Valve:
As the gas control valves turn ON and OFF, a dull clicking sound may be audible, this is
normal operation of a valve. When the fireplace is switched off after being run for a while,
there may be popping and fluttering noises as the residual gas in the burner burns away.
These are normal and should be no cause for concern.
Unit Body/Firebox:
Different types and thicknesses of steel will expand and contract at different rates resulting
in some “dull drumming” and “ticking” sounds being heard throughout the cycling process.
21.2
Smells:
The first few times the unit is operated, the unit may release an odour and the flames may
appear orange caused by the curing of the paint, the burning off of the starch in the gas
coals and the oils in the metal and finishes. This is a temporary curing process which will
disappear with use.
A deposit on the inside of the glass, caused by the starch in the coals may appear as a
build up after several uses. If this film is not removed, it may bake on and may become
difficult to remove. When the glass is cold, remove it (see section 14.0) and clean the inside
with a non-abrasive cleaner.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT. NEVER OPERATE THE UNIT
WITH THE GLASS REMOVED.
630167_5_Manual_Installation_US_R-emotion

Appendix A: Points to note when planning the Installation of the Escea DV flue:
-
This flue system cannot be cut to length. Correct lengths must be selected for each
installation.
-
The listed length of the flue pipe is not the installed length. 1 ½” needs to be subtracted for
each join to determine the installed length of each piece of flue pipe.
E.g. 48” length has installed length of 45”.
-
All vertical measurements should be measured from the top surface of the fireplace casing
itself (not the fascia).
-
When using horizontal flue runs, vertical measurements should be measured to the centre
line of the horizontal flue pipes.
-
When using 90° elbows in the installation, use the diagram below to help calculate
installations horizontal and vertical distances. 1½” will still need to be subtracted from each
join.
-
If using a 45° offset in your installation, consult the chart below to select the required flue
length to give the desired offset. 1½” will still need to be subtracted from each of the 45°
bends to allow for the joins.

Re‐establish Power and Gas Connections With all applicable service work completed and the fire fully assembled again the gas can be re‐established and the batteries replaced. Check gas inlet pressure against data plate at pressure test point using a manometer. Adjust gas pressure to specifications. Remove the manometer and replace the test point screw. Leak test all test points and gas system joins/unions. Check that the pilot flame correctly impinges on the flame failure device (thermocouples should not glow red, as this indicates that the pilot flame is set too high and will reduce the life of the thermocouple). Re‐fit the Fascia The ST900 fascia uses these four hooks for attaching to the fire. Do this by lining up the fascia hooks with the receptacles on the sides of the fire. Lift the fascia so that the hooks are above the receptacles, and let it drop down into position until it is secure and free from movement. 630167_3_Manual_ Service_ST900_US_R‐emotion 7.0 Clean Pilot and Main Burner Jets: With the burner removed the burner jet is now accessible. Remove the jet and clean it using an appropriate method, such as using a micro drill or compressed air. 8.0 Clean Thermocouple: With the Pilot Cover removed you now have access to clean the thermocouple. Do this by wiping it down with a rag or other appropriate cleaning tools in order to remove any soot from the surface. 9.0 Paint Firebox [if required]: If there are any scrapes or damage to the paint on the inside of the firebox you may wish to touch up the paint. To do this, use a suitable high temperature matt black paint. Do not put any paint on the burner, as there is a risk of blocking burner ports. 10.0 Inspect Flue System [if possible]: If you have access to the flue system, inspect it for damage or potential blockages (including the cowl). Ensure each flue component is twist‐locked into the adjacent components and that there are no combustible objects or materials within 1” of either side or below flue components or2” above any flue components, as shown in the diagram below: It is important to ensure that the
flow of combustion and ventilation
air is not obstructed.
11.0 General Clean and Inspection: A general clean of the ST900 should be undertaken by wiping down or dusting all accessible areas and surfaces. 630167_3_Manual_ Service_ST900_US_R‐emotion 5.0 Remove Control Tray [if required]: If the thermocouple needs to be replaced, or the Control Tray needs to be cleaned, it may be necessary to remove the control tray from the appliance. First the main gas connection, Valve to Pilot tube, and Valve to Burner tubes should be disconnected. Remove the starwasher from the thermocouple and push the thermocouple down from inside the firebox to disconnect from pilot assembly. Once the two screws pictured above are removed the tray is free to be lifted (ensuring that all wiring is clear from sheet metal) up 5/8” to clear the metal edge and pulled towards you. If the thermocouple needs to be replaced unplug from tray and unscrew from end of valve. It can then be replaced with the replacement thermocouple tightened into valve to 4Nm. Ensure that the replacement thermocouple is pushed fully home – This may require substantial force. A click should be felt. Then re‐fit the starwasher to ensure thermocouple is retained in correct position. Other components on the control tray can be replaced when necessary while tray is separate from the fireplace. 6.0 When replacing the tray, make sure to reconnect all gas pipes tightly and using sealant where required. Check Glass Assembly: Check that the glass assembly (Removed in section 3.0) for damage to glass or sealing tape. If the glass has any visible damage it must be replaced before use. Ensure the tape which seals the glass against the firebox is in the correct position (shown to the right) and that the glass is secure inside the metal frame and free from movement. 630167_3_Manual_ Service_ST900_US_R‐emotion 4.0 Remove Firebox Contents: Ensure the firebox contents have cooled down completely before attempting to touch or remove any part. First remove all fuel bed media (Driftwood and white stones or Coals) and place them carefully to the side somewhere they will not be damaged. The driftwood logs are very fragile – Use extreme care! Next remove the burner by removing the screw holding it in place as shown to the right, and then lifting the left side of the burner upwards and sliding the burner off the jet on the right hand side. You will also need to remove the Pilot Cover (The long grill at the front of the firebox) in order to access and clean the pilot and thermocouple. To do this, remove the two screws on either side of the Pilot Cover and lift upwards, as shown below, taking care not to scrape or damage the firebox as shown below. 630167_3_Manual_ Service_ST900_US_R‐emotion 1.0 Isolate Power and Gas Supply: 2.0 3.0 Before any service and maintenance work is done on the ST900, the gas supply must be isolated or shut off. Gas can be isolated by either turning the gas off at the cylinders, at the meter or at the appliance isolation valve. Power can be isolated by removing the batteries from the battery pack. Remove the Fascia: Ensure the fascia has cooled before attempting to remove it. The ST900 fascia attaches to the fire by four hooks. To remove the fascia, simply lift it upwards 5/8”‐3/4”, and pull towards you. Care should always be taken when handling the fascia. Remove Glass Assembly: Ensure the glass assembly has cooled completely before attempting to remove it. Pull the four hooks shown below towards you and then away from the glass to release the glass frame underneath the hook. Lift the glass assembly towards you to clear the locating supports and place it flat upon some newspaper or a sheet of cardboard to protect your floor coverings 630167_3_Manual_ Service_ST900_US_R‐emotion Contents: RE‐ASSEMBLY SERVICE DIS‐ASSEMBLY ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ TROUBLESHOOTING Isolate power and gas supply Remove fascia Remove glass assembly Remove firebox contents Remove Control Tray [if required] Check glass assembly Clean pilot and main burner jet Clean burner thermocouple ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ ‐ Inspect flue system [if possible] ‐ Paint firebox [if required] General clean and inspection Re‐assemble ‐ ‐ Re‐establish gas and power supplies ‐ Replace fascia ‐ ‐ 1.0 2.0 3.0 4.0 5.0 6.0 7.0 8.0 9.0 10.0 11.0 12.0 13.0 14.0 15.0 630167_3_Manual_ Service_ST900_US_R‐emotion ST900 Direct Vent Gas Fireplace
