INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
This appliance MUST NOT be installed into a room containing a bath or shower, or where steam may be
present. The fire has been designed to fit into a builders’ opening or fireplace conforming to BS 1251 (and
meeting certain dimensional requirements), or a suitable flue box complying with the constructional
requirements of BS 715. The flue box must be installed onto a suitable non-combustible insulating surface
at least 12mm thick, covering the entire base area of the box.
The flue must have an effective height of at least three metres, as measured from the hearth to the top of
the flue. Any flue damper plates or restrictors should be removed and no other restriction fitted to the flue.
Where removal is not practical, the restriction must be fixed in the fully open position.
A natural draught flue system is required, and if previously used for solid fuel or oil burning, the flue and
chimney must be swept prior to appliance installation. The flue must be checked before installation by using
a smoke pellet or similar to ensure proper draw and that leakage is not evident at any joints. Repair and
re-test as necessary before the appliance is installed.
The flue must be connected to only one fireplace, and the flue must not vent more than one appliance (i.e.
not shared with a gas back boiler). There must be no opening in the flue apart from the one that the appliance is installed into, and the one venting the gases into the air. A suitable terminal may be fitted, such as
class GC1, as regulations allow.
Eko 3030, Eko 3035, Eko 3040, Eko 3050 models only : This appliance has been tested for use in a precast block flue complying with BS 1289. In accordance with BS 1289 part 1, pre-cast flues built with directly plastered faces (front or rear) are not correctly installed as to ensure proper operation with any type of
gas fire. In some instances of this flue construction, temperature cracking of the surface plaster may occur
through no fault of the appliance. An air gap or some form of insulation material should be installed to prevent normal flue temperatures from damaging wall surfaces. Pre-cast flues must be checked for mortar fangs
and correct installation of joints, flue sections in loft space and terminals.
Eko 3030, Eko 3035, Eko 3040, Eko 3050, Eko 3060, Eko 3065 models : These appliances has been tested for use with circular flues of a minimum internal diameter of 125mm.

X Dimension = 60mm
5.0
VENTILATION
No purpose provided ventilation is normally required for this appliance. The requirements of other
appliances operating in the same room or space must be taken into consideration when assessing ventilation.
If spillage is detected when commissioning the appliance, then amongst other problems there may be insufficient natural ventilation for correct operation of the flue. If the appliance does not spill with the windows
open, but spillage is detected with the windows closed, this demonstrates a lack of natural ventilation. If
spillage is still detected with the windows open, the flue is at fault. Installation of an air brick is the best
solution to lack of ventilation. Any ventilation fitted must comply with BS 5871 part 2 and BS 5440 part 2.
Vents fitted under or within the immediate vicinity of the appliance must not be used as adverse effects to
the operation of the ODS may occur.
Spillage detected during commissioning is almost always a result of poor flue performance that cannot be
corrected by any amount of ventilation.
For Republic of Ireland ventilation may be required, see IS 813, ICP3, IS 327, and any other rules in force.
6.0
PREFABRICATED FLUE BOXES
This appliance can be fitted into a number of proprietary flue boxes provided that the minimum dimensions
given in the diagram below are complied with.
Constructional Note: The frame of the fire,
any back panel or other infill panels, and the
flue box must be sealed together so that there
is no possibility of leakage between them.
Adequate clearances to combustible materials
(e.g. false chimney breast construction) must
be maintained.
The manufacturers’ instructions for fitting
the prefabricated box shall be complied with
at all times.
To fit the fire using the cable fixing kit, some
minor adaption may be necessary for certain
flue boxes. A check should be made to ensure
the firebox does not obscure the flue box outlet.
The firebox, base of the flue box, and hearth
below may be drilled to allow plugs and screws
to secure installation.

PREPARING THE APPLIANCE
Note: Ensure that the gas supply is isolated before commencing installation of the appliance.
The fireplace opening and environment must be in compliance
with specifications laid down in the appropriate sections of
these instructions.
Remove the appliance from it’s carton as described previously and stand upon a dust sheet or similar. Place the decorative
frame, coals, ceramics and fixings safely to one side. Remove
the burner from the assembly by removing the retaining
screws. The tray is now free, and may be lifted away.
RADIANT PANELS (Eko 3030, Eko 3035, Eko 3040, Eko 3050
models only) : The three radiant panels may now be fixed inside the firebox. Select
the plain or patterned side of each panel and insert as follows; Lay the firebox on
it’s back. Lay the tapered panel onto the rear face of the firebox.
The side panels should be fitted by inserting their front edges into the pre-fitted
retaining brackets on the front face of the firebox. Gently align the side panels with
the side of the firebox as shown, over the top of the back panel already in place.
Make sure that the side panels are pushed up firmly to the roof of the firebox, and back firmly to retain the tapered
panel. Make small adjustments to line up the mortar lines if required. Secure the side panels using the small ‘L’
shaped brackets and screws provided (shown inset). The screws should locate into the pre-punched holes in the
sides of the firebox.
SUPPLY PIPE ENTRY (All models): Knockout holes are provided in the rear and sides of
the firebox for use where concealed pipework is required. Where necessary, knock out the
appropriate hole with a sharp tap from a hammer, and fit the rubber grommet supplied.
A small incision can now be made in the rubber to slip snugly around the outside of the
pipe and sleeving. Do not install or use the appliance without the seals in place. If a
hole is inadvertently opened, reseal with an intact grommet. Failure to fit the seal correctly
will cause flue suction to act upon the area under the burner, resulting in poor performance and intermittent cutting out of the burner.
Eko 3035 & 3065 Slide controls models : The control knob is supplied as a loose part.
Insert the control knob into the hole in the top of the slide control spindle. Secure the control knob in position using the M4 nyloc nut provided.

PREPARING THE APPLIANCE
(continued)
Eko 3030, Eko 3035, Eko 3040, Eko 3050 models
SPIGOT RESTRICTOR (All models): If installing the fire into
a Class 1 or good Class 2 flue, simply bend up (stitch bend
join) the spigot restrictor into position in the flue outlet of
the fire. You MUST remove (or bend down fully) the spigot restrictor and re-test if the appliance fails a spillage
test during commissioning.
SEALING STRIPS (All models) : Apply the self adhesive
sealing strips to the back of the fireframe to give a continu-
Eko 3060, Eko 3065 models
ous seal.
9.0
PREPARING THE OPENING
Before installing the fire, check the flue using a smoke pellet. All of the smoke should travel up the flue and exit correctly from the terminal. If problems are found, DO NOT fit
the fire until corrective action is completed.
Protect the decorative hearth whilst pushing the firebox in
and out of the opening. Part of the packaging will make an
ideal hearth saver pad.
Before running the gas supply into the opening, offer up the
firebox to the fireplace to check the fit is good. Angle the
firebox or adjust the spigot outlet as described in the Fitting
the Firebox section. Ensure that it slides in correctly, the
sealing face sits flat and square to the wall or infill panel, and
that the base is firm on the floor of the opening as no leaks
are permissible here.
All models - sealing strips
At this stage it is essential to ensure that the spigot outlet of
the fire is not restricted in any way. Remove the firebox and
take any necessary measurements before making good and
preparing for final installation.
CABLE FIXING : For fixing of the fire by the cable method,
see the relevant section. The cable fixing locations should be
marked on the back of the opening and the holes drilled. Fit
the fibre rawlplugs and eyebolts to these holes. Note: Plastic
rawlplugs are NOT suitable for this application.
SCREW FIXING : For fixing by screw, mark and drill the fireframe or base, and the relevant points in the
opening or on the wall. Rawlplugs will again be required. Pre-punched holes are not provided for this purpose to allow you to choose the optimum positions.
GAS SUPPLY : Following preparation for the fixing method, the concealed gas supply, where required, can
now be put into place. Refer to the gas supply section for suggested pipe routes. The ends of the sleeving
in which the gas pipe is run should be sealed. The ends of the 8mm supply pipe should be temporarily sealed
to prevent the ingress of debris during fixing.
10.0
GAS SUPPLY ROUTING
When the opening is ready for installation of the fire, the gas supply can be routed as shown in the diagram
below.
IMPORTANT - Wherever a concealed connection is made a rubber grommet must be used to seal the firebox.
The gas pipe must be suitably protected where it passes through fireplace openings. Any sleeving should be
sealed to the pipe at its ends. This appliance is fitted with an inlet restictor elbow.
The open end of the supply pipe should be sealed temporarily during the installation of the firebox to prevent the ingress of dirt and dust.

FITTING THE FIREBOX
Eko 3030, Eko 3035, Eko 3040, Eko 3050 models only : To fit the firebox, firstly check the fire goes fully
back into the opening. If the fire will not fit straight in, tilt the unit backwards and insert the spigot first to
lead in to the gather at the top of the fireplace. If this is still not possible, remove the spigot outlet screws
using a screwdriver, bend it down and partly insert the firebox. Now push the outlet deflector back up to
the original position under the lip of the fireplace opening and secure with the screws. The fire is designed
to operate correctly with the deflector screwed in its original position and spillage problems may arise by
not realigning correctly once fitted.Secure the fire box by drilling and screwing down the frame or base of
the firebox, or use the cable fixing method.
Eko 3060, Eko 3065 models only : The firebox may be fitted to the opening by using screw fixing or by the
cable kit as described in the relevant section.Secure the fire box by drilling
and screwing down the frame or base of the firebox, or use the cable fixA. 250mm

Before finally fitting cables, ensure the self adhesive sealing strips are in
position on the back of the appliance frame. The fireframe must be sealed
evenly to the fireplace opening all around the periphery.
Thread the tensioning cables through the holes in the top of the firebox, then the eyelets, and finally through
the lower holes in the back of the firebox, as shown in the photographs.
Note: The burner tray MUST be removed as per relevant section to gain
access to the cable adjusters.
Push the appliance back into to fireplace, centralise, and pull the loose tensioning cables through the holes into the firebox. You may need to temporarily adjust the outlet deflector at this point as described in the Fitting
the firebox section. Thread the tensioner bolts onto the cables, with the nuts
screwed down close to the tensioner head. Slide the screwed nipple onto the
cable, pull cable tight, and tighten nipple.
The tension of the cable may now be adjusted by using a suitable spanner
on the tensioner nuts to pull the appliance tightly against the fireplace opening. Visually inspect the seal and reseat if necessary.
Note: DO NOT cut off excess cable. Surplus cable must not be cut off, as it
will be impossible to refit the fire after servicing. Coil up the surplus cable,
and locate at rear of firebox.
Note : If running a concealed gas supply, ensure grommets are secure around incoming pipes.

GAS CONNECTION
Purge the gas supply thoroughly to remove air and dirt/debris BEFORE connection. Now disconnect the inlet
restrictor elbow from the inlet pipe. Connect the previously installed gas supply to inlet restrictor elbow, and re-fit
the restrictor elbow to the inlet pipe of the appliance.
If using an across hearth connection, ensure the decorative fireframe and firefront will clear the supply route.
If the data/control plate is not already fitted, attach with two screws, ensuring the control knob is free to be
depressed fully.
14.0
TESTING AND COMMISSIONING
Turn on and test the gas supply up to the fire for any leaks, in accordance with current edition of BS6891.
When the appliance is first used, protective oils coating the firebox may burn off. It is advisable to ventilate the
room during this period for at least one hour.
14.1
OPERATING THE FIRE (manaul control models)
The pilot is visible through the left hand side of the front ceramic strip. Rotate
the coals or pebbles for good viewing. Push in and turn the control knob to the
SPARK position, and hold there for a few seconds.
Continue turning anti-clockwise through the spark click to the PILOT light position, ensuring the pilot has lit. If not, return the knob clockwise, and repeat.
When the pilot lights after the spark, keep the knob depressed for approximately ten seconds. Now release the knob and the pilot should stay alight. If
the pilot is extinguished during use, wait three minutes before repeating the
ignition procedure. To achieve the HIGH setting, push the control knob in
slightly and continue turning anti-clockwise to the high position. The main
burner should light after a few seconds. To decrease the setting to LOW, turn the control knob clockwise to the
low setting.
To turn to the PILOT position from the HIGH or LOW positions, press the control knob in, and return to the pilot
position and release. To turn the fire OFF, keep the knob pressed in, return to the off position and release.

OPERATING THE FIRE
(remote control models)
The pilot is visible through the left hand side of the front ceramic strip. Turn the main burner control (shown on left hand side of
control valve) knob fully anti-clockwise.
Turn ignition knob (shown on right hand side of control valve)
slightly left towards the ignition position until reaching the stop,
press down and hold for 5 seconds (only pilot gas is flowing)
Continue pressing down the knob while turning further to the left
to activate the piezo spark, continue to hold the knob down for a
further 10 seconds after the pilot has been lit. If the pilot does
not light repeat the previous steps.
Upon lighting and after the further 10 seconds, release the knob and turn further
to the left to the ON position. The main burner will light and be controlled in accordance with the main burner control knob setting. Adjust the main burner control
knob to the desired setting.
If the pilot is extinguished during use of the fire, you MUST wait ten minutes before
repeating the ignition procedure.
To turn the main burner OFF whilst keeping the pilot flame lit, turn the ignition control knob to the pilot position then only the pilot will remain lit.
To shut the fire off completely, press the ignition control knob down and continue
turning to the right from the pilot position to the OFF position.
A safety interlock prevents re-ignition of the pilot flame until the thermocouple has
cooled sufficiently to allow the magnetic valve unit to reset itself.
The remote control unit allows operation of the main burner setting between maximum and pilot only setting. It does not permanently turn the pilot on or off.
The remote control handset incorporates an inbuilt safety feature to prevent the
main burner being activated or turned up accidentally. It is necessary to press button 1 and 2 (see illustration) simultaneously to turn the fire up.
To turn the fire down press button 3 only.

OPERATING THE FIRE (slide control versions)
The pilot is visible through the left hand side of the matrix. Rotate the coals or pebbles for good viewing. Push the slide control knob fully downwards to the SPARK position, and hold there for a few seconds, until the pilot light stays on. When the pilot
light has established, release the slide control knob and it will return to the LOW
flame setting. If the pilot is extinguished during use, wait three minutes before
repeating the ignition procedure.
To achieve the HIGH setting, move the slide control knob upwards to the HIGH flame
setting. The fire can also be set to operate anywhere between HIGH and LOW by moving the control knob to an intermediate position.
To turn the fire OFF, move the slide control knob upwards upwards fully to the position marked ‘O’.
14.4
SPARK FAILURE
The gap between the spark electrode and the pilot should be 3.5 - 4.5mm to produce
a good spark. There should be no need to adjust this. If under any circumstances the
electric spark fails, the pilot may be lit manually by proceeding with the ignition
sequence as previously described, and after turning the control knob through the
spark position, the knob should be held in and the pilot lit with a taper.
14.5
SETTING PRESSURE
Remove the screw from the pressure test point.
The test point is situated on the main injector pipe
Attach a U gauge. Light the fire on the HIGH setting. The setting
pressure should be in accordance with the figures stated on page
2 of these instructions. The fire is factory set to achieve these
pressures, and any significant variation could indicate a supply
problem.If the pressure is too high, the gas supply meter may be
set incorrectly. This should be checked with the fire running and
if necessary reset by the gas supplier. If the pressure is too low,
then check the meter governor pressure with the appliance running. If this is incorrect it will need to be reset by the gas supplier.If the setting pressure is too low, but the meter pressure is
acceptable, then a problem in the supply pipework is to be suspected. This will be dirt and debris, kinked or inadequate size pipes, restriction in a fitting or solder flashing across a joint. (NOTE: you will not get an accurate reading of the inlet pressure with a pressure gauge on the end of the supply pipe - this is the static pressure in the system. You must use a T piece and measure the supply pressure with the fire on High - the dynamic pressure). Refit
and tighten the screw into the pressure test point when the test is complete.

14.6
FLUE SPILLAGE MONITORING SYSTEM
This fire is fitted with a flue spillage safety device (ODS). If the fire shuts down during use for no apparent
reason then several things may be suspected. If a door or window has been opened creating a draught, then
pilot disturbance is the problem, and removal of the draught should resolve this. The gas pressure reaching
the fire must also be checked (again, recall your installer to check and rectify any problem). The thermocouple connection into the back of the gas control valve may also have worked loose during installation, simply get the installer to tighten.
If pilot disturbance is not the cause, then the ODS safety system may be in operation. Switch the appliance
OFF, check the flue and carry out any remedial work required. Relight the fire and carry out a spillage test.
DO NOT allow the appliance to be used if it continues to fail a spillage test.
The aeration hole of the pilot must be carefully cleaned out on each annual service to ensure continued function of the ODS.
The spillage monitoring system shall not be adjusted, modified, or put out of operation by the installer. Any
spare parts fitted MUST be of a type supplied for the purpose by the appliance manufacturer. If the fire is
not spilling, then further guidance should be sought, using the Troubleshooting section as a guide.
14.7
TESTING FOR SPILLAGE
Close all doors and windows to the room containing the appliance. Let the fire run on HIGH for five minutes.
Take a smoke match, light it, and using a smoke match tube, hold it at the top edge of the fire opening,
25mm down and 25mm in. Starting 50mm in from either side, run the smoke match across the opening.
All the smoke should be drawn away up the flue. Any smoke returning into the room indicates that spillage
is occurring. If the initial spillage test fails, run the fire for a further 10 minutes and repeat the test.
When the test has been completed satisfactorily, repeat with any extractor fans in the premises running on
the highest setting, and any communicating doors open. Finally, repeat with all doors open.

3. Open the bag of 16 moulded coals. All of the
coals are the same. Take five coals and place them
as shown. Care should be taken to ensure that the
coals bridge the gap between the front coal and
the four coal supports at the front of the matrix.
Care should also be taken not to push the coals
right down between the coal supports, as this can
detract from the flame picture when the appliance
is running.
4. Take five more moulded coals and position as
shown to form the ‘second row’ of the fuel effect.
The coals may be rotated as desired to fit into the
gaps between the coal supports in order to create
a random, realistic effect. Again, remember not to
push the coals down too far into the valleys
between the coal supports as this can have a detrimental effect to the flame picture.
5. Now take another four coals and place behind
the second row of coals, in order to complete the
third row. The coals may be orientated as desired
to achieve a realistic effect. Keep the spacing
between the coals even and uniform. The two coals
at the ends of the row may be placed rearwards,
towards the back corners of the fuel matrix.
6. Finally, take the two remaining coals and place
at the back of the fuel matrix, in the centre as
shown. Adding these coals should complete the
appearance of the fuel bed giving an even distribution of equally spaced coals.
The fire is designed to operate correctly with
the coals supplied when assembled according
to the instructions. Never add to the sixteen
coals, or change them for a different type. Never
throw rubbish or other matter onto the coal
bed.

2. Open the bag of 16 ceramic pebbles. All of these
pebbles are the same size. Take five pebbles and
place them as shown. Care should be taken to
ensure that the pebbles bridge the gap between
the front strip and the four supports at the front
of the matrix. Care should also be taken not to
push the pebbles right down between the supports, as this can affect the flame picture when the
appliance is running.
3. Take five more ceramic pebbles and position as
shown to form the ‘second row’ of the fuel effect.
The pebbles may be rotated as desired to fit into
the gaps between the supports in order to create
a random, realistic effect. Again, remember not to
push the pebbles down too far into the valleys
between the supports as this can have a detrimental effect to the flame picture.
4. Now take another two pebbles and place behind
the second row of coals, next to each other in the
centre of the fuel bed. The pebbles may be orientated as desired to achieve a realistic effect. Keep
the spacing between the pebbles even and uniform.
5. Finally, take the four remaining pebbles and
place at the back of the fuel matrix as shown.
Once again, the pebbles may be orientated as
desired in order to give a realistic effect. Avoid
pushing the pebbles down between the supports.
The fuel bed layout is now complete.
The fire is designed to operate correctly with
the pebbles supplied when assembled according to the instructions. Never add to the sixteen
pebbles, or change them for a different type.
Never throw rubbish or other matter onto the
fuel bed.
Due to the light colour of the pebbles, some discolouration/sooting is to be expected during normal
use.

2. Open the bag of 9 moulded ceramic logs. All of
the logs except two are the same. Take the largest
log (numbered 16) and place it as shown. Care
should be taken to ensure that the orientation is
correct and the log fits snugly into its position.
3. Take the two medium sized logs (numbered 15
and 8) position the log numbered 8 on the left
hand side ensuring correct orientation. Place the
log numbered 15 on the right hand side again
ensuring correct orientation. Both these logs will fit
securely into their allocated poisition, they may
require rotating slightly to ensure this.
4. Now take the remaining large log (numbered 4)
and position vertically as shown, ensuring correct
orientation. The base of this log must rest securely on the front log strip. Take one of the smaller
logs (numbered 14) and position in between the
two vertically positioned logs ennsuring the orientation is correct. Keep the spacing between these
logs uniform.
5. Finally, take the remaining two medium sized
logs (numbered 5 and 7) and place in a horizontal
position shown, 5 first, resting on the front log
strip. 7 next resting on 5. Now take the smallest
log (numbered 12) and position in the orientation
shown ensuring the log does not fall into the
matrix but rests securely on the allocated supports. Now take the final log (numbered 14) and
place in a horizontal position as shown. Ensure
there is even spacing between the logs and rotate
if necessary to provide a stable fit onto the matrix.
The fuel bed layout is now complete.
The fire is designed to operate correctly with the
logs supplied when assembled according to the
instructions. Never add to the nine logs, or change
them for a different type. Never throw rubbish or
other matter onto the fuel bed.

SERVICING
The fire and flue should be checked on an annual basis to ensure all of the product of combustion are entering the flue and that there is no excessive build up of soot. The frequency of service will depend on usage,
but MUST be carried out at least once annually. Servicing must be carried out by a competent person.
Cleaning of the coals/pebbles may be carried out by following the instructions given in the Installation section. The Installation instructions carry full servicing details for the use of the installer.
If debris from the flue or other foreign matter is found on the fire it may indicate a need for servicing. Do
not use the fire until the source of the debris has been found and rectified. Air vents (where fitted) should
be checked periodically to ensure they are free from obstruction.

The remote control unit allows operation of the main burner setting between
maximum and pilot only setting. It does not permanently turn the pilot on or
off.
The remote control handset incorporates an inbuilt safety feature to prevent the main burner being activated or turned up accidentally. It is necessary to press button 1 and 2 (see illustration) simultaneously to turn
the fire up.
To turn the fire down press button 3 only.

OPERATING THE FIRE (slide control versions)
The pilot is visible through the left hand side of the matrix. Rotate the coals or
pebbles for good viewing. Push the slide control knob fully downwards to the
SPARK position, and hold there for a few seconds, until the pilot light stays on.
When the pilot light has established, release the slide control knob and it will
return to the LOW flame setting. If the pilot is extinguished during use, wait
three minutes before repeating the ignition procedure.
To achieve the HIGH setting, move the slide control knob upwards to the HIGH
flame setting. The fire can also be set to operate anywhere between HIGH and
LOW by moving the control knob to an intermediate position.
To turn the fire OFF, move the slide control knob upwards upwards fully to the
position marked ‘O’.

FLUE SPILLAGE MONITORING SYSTEM
This fire is fitted with a flue spillage safety device (ODS). If the fire shuts down during use for no apparent
reason then several reasons may be suspected. If a door or window has been opened creating a draught,
then pilot disturbance could be the problem, and removal of the draught should resolve this. The fire can
then be re-lit in accordance with the previous section. A grommet seal may also be missing from the firebox
causing abnormal draught to shut down the pilot. Call your installer to check seals are properly fitted. If pilot
disturbance is not the cause, then the ODS safety system may be in operation. Switch the appliance OFF, call
in your installer to check the flue and ventilation and carry out any remedial work required. DO NOT allow
the appliance to be used until the flue system is passed as safe.

CLEANING
Before carrying out any of the following operations, ensure that the fire is OFF and completely cold.
Debris that may form on the firebed should be periodically removed by a competent person. Large deposits
could indicate deterioration of the flue. This should be repaired by a competent person, and the fire serviced before further use.
FIREFRONT - Any dust accumulating in the firefront may be removed using a vacuum cleaner or dry cloth.
Heavy stains may be removed by using a damp cloth and mild household detergent. Brass parts of the firefront may be cleaned using a suitable brass cleaner. Replace the front centrally against the fire after cleaning.
PAINTED AREAS - These can be cleaned using a dry cloth.
