FRONT DOOR
INSTALLATION
1) Open the two side panels.
2) Slide the door onto the two hinge pins
making sure the two pieces are flush together. See diagram 1.
6) Test the seal around the door by placing a
piece of paper between the unit and the
door, close the door and try to pull the paper
out. If it slips out easily, then the door is not
properly sealed. Tighten or loosen the latch.
See diagram 3.
Note:
The smoke should be drawn into the draft
diverter. If the smoke is not drawn into the draft
diverter, turn the unit off and check for the
cause of lack of draft.
.
The door latch may require adjustment as the door gasket material compresses after a few fires
and after glass replacement. Turn
the latch catch inward or outward to loosen or tighten.
Note: If the flue is blocked or has a strong
reverse flow, check for the cause of the
lack of draft.
Diagram 3
Diagram 1
3) Close the door. The latch plate must be
centered around the alignment pin. See
diagram 2. If the latch plate interferes with
the corner of the stove you may want to
angle the plate slightly so the door closes
easier.
TEST FOR FLUE
SPILLAGE
A "spillage" test must be made before the
installed unit is left with the customer. Follow
the procedure below:
1) Start all exhaust fans in the home and any
other gas appliances. Then close all doors
and windows.
2) Light the unit and set controls to maximum.
3) After five minutes, test that there is a "pull"
on the flue by placing a smoke match,
cigarette or similar device which gives off
smoke, on the edge of the draft diverter.
See diagrams.
Diagram 2
4) The latches should already be at the proper
setting. If they are too hard or too easy to
close, you may want to adjust them by
loosening the latch catch. See diagram 3.
5) Remove the blue plastic protective coating
from the glass.

Before leaving this unit with the customer, the
installer must ensure that the appliance is firing
correctly. This includes:
The remote control kit comes with a hand held
transmitter and a wall mounting plate.
1) Clocking the appliance to ensure the correct firing rate (rate noted on label) at 15
minutes.
1) Choose a convenient location to mount the
hand held transmitter, protection from extreme heat is very important.
2) If required, adjusting the primary air to
ensure that the flame does not carbon. First
allow the unit to burn for 15 min. to stabilize.
By usiing the wall mounting plate to house the
transmitter, the remote can also be used as a
wall thermostat.
3) Check for proper draft.

NORMAL OPERATING
SOUNDS OF
GAS APPLIANCES
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 gauges
and types of steel used within your appliance.
Listed below are some examples. All are normal operating sounds and should not be
considered as defects in your appliance.
Blower:
Masport gas appliances use high tech blowers
to push heated air farther into the room. It is not
unusual for the fan to make a "whirring" sound
when ON. This sound will increase or decrease
in volume depending on the speed setting of
your fan speed control.
Burner Tray:
The burner tray is positioned directly under the
burner tube(s) and logs and is made of a
different gauge material from the rest of the
firebox and body. Therefore, the varying thicknesses of steel will expand and contract at
slightly different rates which can cause "ticking" and "cracking" sounds. You should also be
aware that as there are temperature changes
within the unit these sounds will likely re-occur.
Again, this is normal for steel fireboxes.
Gas Control Valve:
As the gas control valve turns ON and OFF, a
dull clicking sound may be audible, this is normal
operation of a gas regulator or valve.
WARNING
DO NOT SPRAY AEROSOLS IN
THE VICINITY OF THIS
APPLIANCE WHILE IN
OPERATION
14
Unit Body/Firebox:
Different types and thicknesses of steel will
expand and contract at different rates resulting
in some "cracking" and "ticking" sounds will be
heard throughout the cycling process.

MAINTENANCE
MAINTENANCE
INSTRUCTIONS
Any maintenance required accessing the
glass door of the unit must be performed by
an authorized service person.
1) Always unplug the power cord before
cleaning. For relighting, refer to lighting
instructions. Keep the burner and control
compartment clean by brushing and vacuuming at least once a year. When cleaning
the logs, use a soft clean brush as the logs
are fragile and easily damaged.
2) Clean glass (never when unit is hot), appliance, louvres, and door with a damp
cloth. Never use an abrasive cleaner. The
gold louvres (and optional gold door) may
be scratched if abrasives are used to
clean them.
The heater is finished in a heat resistant
paint and should only be refinished with
heat resistant paint (not with wall paint).
Masport uses StoveBright Paint - Metallic
Black #6309.
3) Make a periodic check of burner for proper
position and condition. Visually check the
flame of the burner periodically, making
sure the flames are steady; not lifting or
floating. If there is a problem, call an authorized service person.
4) The appliance and flueing system must be
inspected before use, and at least annually, by an authorized field service person,
to ensure that the flow of combustion and
ventilation air is not obstructed.
During the annual service call, the burners
should be removed from the burner tray
and cleaned. Replace the embers - do not
block the burner ports.
5) Keep the area near the appliance clear and
free from combustible materials, gasoline
and other flammable vapours and liquids.
