IMPORTANT RECOMMENDATIONS
- Check that there is always at least 1cm between the door and the frame or masonry.
- Keep all readily inflammable objects away from the appliance (nylon fabrics, inflammable
liquids, etc.). Furniture items must be kept at a minimum distance of 1m from the appliance.
- ATTENTION: children and people who do not know how to operate the air-vent gas fireplace
must completely refrain from using it. Where necessary, provide additional protection to
prevent, for example, children from touching the appliance.
- All visible parts must be treated as active heating surfaces and may not therefore be touched
during operation, at the risk of burning oneself.
- It is prohibited to use the appliance with the glass damaged or without the door.
- Only install the draught limiter if there is a difference in vertical length of over 3m in relation
to the horizontal length.
- The fan must always be in operation. If this is not the case, a thermal switch activates the
fireplace’s emergency shutdown mechanism.
FIRST FIRE
- On first lighting (start of season or new installation), air in the gas flue may disrupt flame
detection. In this case, simply restart the appliance several times (to purge the flue), and you
must open the door after each unsuccessful attempt to light, in order to prevent gas
accumulating in the combustion chamber.
- You must wait 5 seconds for the pilot light to stabilize, and visually check the presence of
the flame before lighting the burner. Also, it is recommended that the flame level be at
maximum in order to light the burner.
- Make sure you clean the glass well before and after the first lighting of the fireplace to prevent
accumulation of particles on the glass.
- After two hours of heating, turn the appliance off, let it cool down, open the door to
remove the whitish deposit on the glass using a damp cloth, and then close the door.
- The first fire bakes the paint, which causes a release of fumes:
- Ventilate the room.
- Do not touch the paint until the fireplace has cooled down as initially it softens.
After three unsuccessfull lighthing attemps,
the appliance goes into security mode and blocks for five minutes.

available from your supplier.
- For cleaning the glass, do not use an aggressive product. We recommend the “BG CLEAN” product, available from your supplier.
ANNUAL MAINTENANCE
- The appliance and exhaust flue must be checked and cleaned every year by your approved
installer.
- Turn off the gas supply stopcock.
- Open the door (take this opportunity to clean it).
- Remove the gravel.
- Remove the dust deposits from inside the heating unit and from the burner using a
vacuum cleaner or brush.
- Check that the connections are airtight and that the different parts of the appliance operate smoothly.

USING THE APPLIANCE
The fireplace is controlled by means of a remote control and a manual control for both starting and
stopping. Ventilation is managed using a variator.
VENTILATION
- The ventilation must always be switched on.
- Fan speed is adjustable to allow you to adjust ventilation to your requirements.
- The ventilation system is fitted with a thermal switch. This device starts or stops ventilation
auto matically according to the temperature of the heating unit. When the latter reaches a
temperature of around 40°C, the thermal switch starts up the fan.

INSTRUCTIONS
Argos
Attention: Remove the instructions from the fireplace and give them to the client,
along with the necessary instructions (explanations and demonstrations).

1
IMPORTANT RECOMMENDATIONS
- Check that the appliance installed is right for the type of gas used (the appliance can be installed for
natural gas or propane).
- Your supplier is the SPECIALIST chosen by BODART & GONAY to represent your region. For your SAFETY
and SATISFACTION, we recommend that you have them carry out your installation.
- Before installation, check that local supply conditions (identification of gas and pressure category) and
the appliance settings are compatible.
- This appliance must be installed in accordance with the regulations in force. We recommend that you
comply with the various local installation regulations for air-vent appliances.
- The Argos gas air-vent fireplace must be connected by an approved installer in accordance with the
standard NBN D51/003 or NBN D51/006 LPG and Pr NBN 61-002 for Belgium and standard NFD 35-377
or Document Technique Unifié (DTU P45 204) for France.
- If your chimney has previously been used with another heating or kitchen appliance, you must have it
swept before positioning the chimney flue. The chimney flue and its connection to the fireplace must be
airtight and clean. The chimney must be made with the:
“ONTOP” US 130-200 flue system
or the “POUJOULAT” 130-200 EI flue
Only installations mentioned in the paragraph “chimney installation” are permitted.
- Logs (optional) must be laid flat on the “coal” bed (gravel).
- Your appliance has been correctly adjusted and sealed in the factory. If, because of local circumstances,
adjustments need to be made, they can only be done by the approved installer. Any intervention by the
user will lead ipso facto to annulment of the guarantee.
- Any installer wishing to change an appliance from one gas category to another MUST contact the
manufacturer.
- Plan for gas inlet pipes (outlet ½” female) on the inside right of the appliance in accordance with NBN
54/003 or NBN D51/006 regulations.
- Make sure you clean the glass well before the first lighting of the fireplace to prevent accumulation of
particles on the glass.
- For the 450 m3/hr fan air inlet, prepare in the masonry a passage of at least 6 dm2 without filter, or at
least 9 dm2 with dust filter. No air intake from below. To bring air from the room to the fan.
- During installation of the fireplace with the 450 m³/hr fan, it is possible to use hot air flues. In this case,
the use of air intake grills or outside air inlet grills with sections at least equivalent to those of the down
draught grills is very important so as not to create a vacuum in the room.
24 Argos
- Check that there is always at least 1cm between the door and the frame or
masonry.
- Keep all readily inflammable objects away from the appliance (nylon fabrics,
inflammable liquids, etc.). Furniture items must be kept at a minimum distance of 1m
from the appliance.
- ATTENTION: children and people who do not know how to operate the air-vent gas
fireplace must completely refrain from using it. Where necessary, provide additional
protection to prevent, for example, children from touching the appliance.
- All visible parts must be treated as active heating surfaces and may not therefore be
touched during operation, at the risk of burning oneself.
- It is prohibited to use the appliance with the glass damaged or without the door.
- Only install the draught limiter if there is a difference in vertical length of over 3m in
relation to the horizontal length.
FIRST FIRE
- On first lighting (start of season or new installation), air in the gas flue may disrupt flame
detection. In this case, simply restart the appliance several times (to purge the flue), and
you must open the door after each unsuccessful attempt to light, in order to prevent
gas accumulating in the combustion chamber.
- You must wait 5 seconds for the pilot light to stabilize, and visually check the
presence of the flame before lighting the burner. Also, it is recommended that the
flame level be at maximum in order to light the burner.
- Make sure you clean the glass well before and after the first lighting of the fireplace to
prevent accumulation of particles on the glass.
- After two hours of heating, turn the appliance off, let it cool down, open the door
to remove the whitish deposit on the glass using a damp cloth, and then close the
door.
- The first fire bakes the paint, which causes a release of fumes:
- Ventilate the room.
- Do not touch the paint until the fireplace has cooled down as initially it
softens.
After three unsuccessful attemps to light,
the appliance automatically blocks itselfs for 5 minutes.

CHIMNEY INSTALLATION
- The only permitted flues are:
Ontop system US diam. 130/200 or POUJOLAT 130/200 EI
- The gas outlet must be protected mechanically by a grill if it is positioned less than 2.2 m from
the ground.
- ANY ACCESSIBLE PART OF THE FLUE MUST BE PROTECTED TO PREVENT BURNING. The rules
of the French DTU 24.2.2 and Pr NBN 61-002 for Belgium are in force to prevent any risk of
fire.
- The minimum and maximum lengths must comply with the chart below.
For each additional horizontal metre, add 1 metre of vertical duct.
For each additional 90° elbow, add 1 metre of vertical duct.
For each additional 45° elbow, add 0.5 metre of vertical duct.
- Only install the draught limiter or reduction kit if there is a difference in vertical length of
over 3m in relation to the horizontal length

INSTALLING AND CONNECTING THE FIREPLACE
- Plan for the gas intake on the right of the appliance.
- Place the Argos in the ventilated alcove.
- Connect the chimney flue to the outside of the fireplace (“ONTOP” or “POUJOLAT” flue).
Attention: the temperatures of the outer surfaces of the chimney flue can reach
200°C.
Consequently, do not use any combustible material near the chimney flue
without using suitable Protection.
AVOID CLOSED SPACES ALONG THE FLUE (FALSE CEILING, ETC.)
WHICH WOULD CREATE DANGEROUS HEAT BUILD-UP.
- Open the door with the tool (remove it when the fireplace is in use).

- Remove the stone supports and burner.
- Remove the right flap (gas connection).
- Connect the connection tube to the gas pipe (on the right of the appliance) (1/2” gas). The gas pipes
must be free of dirt. Check there are no leaks, turn off all gas appliances and check that the meter does
not move for 5 minutes.
- It is advised to place on the gas pipe before the appliance a removable and washable gas filter.
- Connect the transformer. The transformer and the manual command and the switch 1/0 should
ideally be installed in an accessible place outside the appliance.
- Test the lighting of the pilot light (purge the flue). On first lighting (start of season or new installation), air in the gas flue may disrupt flame detection. In this case, simply restart the appliance
several times (to purge the flue), and you must open the door after each unsuccessful attempt to
light, in order to prevent gas accumulating in the combustion chamber.
- Position the flap, burner and stone support. Spread the gravel uniformly over the burners and stone
support (an excess quantity may be provided depending on the model of fireplace). The pilot light
outlet aperture MUST NOT BE BLOCKED BY THE GRAVEL.
- Close the door using the tool.
- Test the lighting a few times, and check that the flame is spread evenly. Reposition the gravel if necessary.
- Lighting the appliance: check there is a flame at the pilot light and wait at least for the little flame
drawing to stop flashing before lighting the burner.
- CHECK THAT THE APPLIANCE WORKS PROPERLY.Close the chimney and finish fitting.
Fan installation
The fan is fitted from inside.
You must:
1. Remove the stones if they are already in place.
2. Remove the stone support and burners.
3. Unscrew the large hatch (the one with the injectors and pilot light).
4. Place the fan inside the fireplace using silent blocks to position it.
Attention: the power lead may be plugged in either inside the fireplace or below it by passing it
through the hole provided for this purpose; make sure the fan is installed the right way
round! Blower directed towards the back.
5. Replace the hatch, burners, stone support and stones.
6. Close the door.
Electricity supply -> Thermal switch -> Fan
Note:
- The fan may be mounted under the fireplace. Put the fan through the lower hole. Position it using silent
blocks in the four housings provided for this purpose. Leave room for the electrical lead.
- A thermal switch activates the fan when the appliance is hot and cuts it out when the appliance cools
down.
