IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
• This appliance is for supplemental heating
only. It should not be used as the primary heat
source for a dwelling.
• WARNING: During manufacturing, fabricating, and
shipping, various components of CHILLBUSTER are
treated with certain oils or films. These are not harmful but
may produce annoying smoke and smells as they are
burned off during the initial operation of the appliance,
possibly causing headaches or eye or lung irritation. This
is a normal and temporary occurrence. The initial break-in
operation should last 2-3 hours with the burner at the
highest setting. Provide maximum ventilation by opening
windows, doors, and the chimney flue to allow odors to
dissipate. The only odor remaining after this initial break-in
will be the normal odors associated with the combustion
of Natural or Propane gas.
•
This appliance is equipped with an ODS (OXYGEN
DEPLETION SENSOR) pilot light safety system designed
to shut itself off if not enough fresh air is available.
Additional ventilation may be obtained by opening a
window or a door to another room.
• Although your CHILLBUSTER is very realistic in
appearance, it is not a real wood burning fireplace.
Matches, paper, garbage, or any other material must not
be thrown on top of the logs or into the flames.
• Avoid contact with the logs, grate, or any other part
which may be hot.
• Always ensure that the fireplace screen is closed
when the appliance is operating.
• State or local codes may only allow operation of this
appliance in a vented configuration. Check your state or
local codes. If not permitted, you may install and operate
CHILLBUSTER as a vented appliance. (See "VENTED
OPERATION" below).
WARNING: Before installing in a solid fuel burning fireplace,
the chimney flue and firebox must be cleaned of soot, creosote, ashes
and loose paint by a qualified chimney cleaner.
WARNING: Do not allow fans to blow directly into the fireplace. Avoid
any drafts that alter burner flame patterns.
WARNING: Do not use a blower insert, heat exchanger insert or
other accessory not approved for use with this heater.

VENT FREE OPERATION
PROVISIONS FOR ADEQUATE COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION AIR
This heater shall not be installed in a "confined" space or unusually tight construction unless provisions
are provided for adequate combustion and ventilation air.
Confined Or Unconfined Space Determination:
The National Fuel Gas Code defines a confined space as a space whose volume is less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000
Btu per hour (4.8m3 per kW) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space and an unconfined
space as a space whose volume is not less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8m3 per kW) of the aggregate
input rating of all appliances installed in that space. Rooms communicating directly with the space in which the
appliances are installed, through openings not furnished with doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.
Calculations To Determine Confined Or Unconfined Space:
1. Determine number of rooms (including adjoining rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grates.)
Example:
Living room/dining room + Kitchen
2. Determine the Total Volume of the Space (width x length x height).
Example:
Living room/dining room
14' x 20' x 8' = 2240 cu ft
Kitchen
8' x 12' x 8' = 768 cu ft
Total Volume of Space
3008 cu ft
3. Divide the total space volume by 50 cuft to determine the Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr.
Example:
3008 cu ft ÷ 50 = 60.160 x 1000 = 6 0 , 1 6 0
Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr = 60,160 Btu/Hr.
4. Add the rated (Btu/hr) of all fuel burning appliances in the "space" to determine Actual Btu/Hr Used.
Example:
Vent free gas log heater
40,000 Btu/Hr
Gas water heater
32,000 Btu/Hr
Actual Btu/Hr Used
72,000 Btu/Hr
Note: Do not include direct vent gas appliances.
5. Compare Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr against Actual Btu/hr Used.
•If Actual Btu/Hr Used is greater than Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr then space is CONFINED.
•If the Actual Btu/Hr Used is less than Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr then space is UNCONFINED.
60,160 Btu/Hr = Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr
- 72,000 Btu/Hr = Actual Btu/Hr Used
- 11,840 Btu/Hr = Excess Non-Supportable Btu/Hr
In the example, because the Actual Btu/Hr Used exceeds the Maximum Supportable
Btu/hr the space would
be considered a Confined
Space requiring you to either increase the Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr,
decrease the Actual Btu/Hr Used or operate as a Vented Appliance (see page 3).
Adequate Combustion And Ventilation Air Options:
•
•
•
•
Increase the Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr by adding to the number of rooms which comprise the "Space".
To do this you must ether completely remove the door to an adjoining room or provide two permanent ventilation
grills; one within 12" of the ceiling and another within 12" of the floor.
Increase the Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr by providing extra fresh air using ventilation grills and ducts to the
outdoors. You must provide two permanent openings, one within 12" of the ceiling and another within 12" of the
floor. Connect these directly to the outdoors or spaces open to the outdoors, e.g., attics or crawl spaces.
Follow the National Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1, Section 5.3, Air for Combustion and Ventilation for
required size of ventilation grills or ducts.
Lower the Actual Btu/Hr Used by relocating other gas burning appliances outside the "space" or installing a
lower Btu/Hr heater. In the example, the maximum Btu/Hr of the heater could be no more than 28,160 Btu/Hr.
For our example, we have chosen to add to our Total Volume of the Space by removing the door to an adjoining
study and increasing our Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr by the volume of the additional room. The new "space"
calculations, including the additional adjoining room are: Living room/dining room & Kitchen
3008 cu ft
Study (9' x 10' x 8')
720 cu ft
Total volume of space
3728 cu ft
The new Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr = (3728 cu ft ÷ 50 cu ft ) x 1000 = 7 4 , 5 6 0 B t u / H r
74,560 Btu/Hr = Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr
- 72,000 Btu/Hr = Actual Btu/Hr Used
2,560 Btu/Hr = Remaining Supportable Btu/Hr
Because the Actual Btu/Hr used is now less than the Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr, the space is
considered an Unconfined Space. No additional fresh combustion and ventilation air would be required.

* If Line 5 is zero or less, the Actual Btu/Hr Used is greater than Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr and
the space is CONFINED. You must either increase the Maximum Supportable Btu/Hr, decrease
the Actual Btu/Hr Used or operate as a Vented Appliance (see page 3).
WARNING: If the area in which the heater may be operated is smaller than that defined
as an unconfined space or if the building is of unusually tight construction, provide
adequate combustion and ventilation air by one of the methods described in the
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1, 1992, Section 5.3 or applicable local codes.
Unusually tight construction is construction where:
a) Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a continuous water
vapor retarder with a rating of 1 perm or less with openings gasketed or sealed, and
b) Weather stripping has been added on openable windows and doors, and
c) Caulking or sealants are applied to areas such as joints around window and door
frames, between sole plates and floors, between wall panels, at penetrations for
plumbing, electrical, and gas lines, and at other openings.
WARNING: CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING MAY LEAD TO DEATH
When used without fresh air, gas log sets may give off carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless,
poisonous gas. Some people, pregnant women, persons with heart or lung disease, anemia, or under
the influence of alcohol and persons at high altitudes are more affected by carbon monoxide than
others. Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning resemble the flu: Headache, dizziness, and/or
nausea. If you have these signs, the gas log may not be installed or working properly, or the chimney
flue may be blocked. GET FRESH AIR AT ONCE! Have gas log set and chimney flue serviced
before using again.

NOTE: "Clearances to Combustible Construction" are those distances
required to ensure that a fireplace mantel or facing will not catch fire. In
most cases they should also be adequate to prevent any discoloration or
warping due to heat. However, each and every Gas Log Installation
(CHILLBUSTER included) presents a different and completely unique set
of circumstances involving many variables beyond the control of the Gas
Log Manufacturer. These include paint or finish composition, previous
exposure to heat, methods and quality of construction, air flow patterns,
glass doors, fans or blowers, etc.. Because of these variables, we cannot
guarantee that heat warping or discoloration will never occur. The potential
for heat warping or discoloration may exist whether you are burning a
CHILLBUSTER, some other manufacturer's Gas Log or even wood.

The receiver must be protected from overheating. Locate receiver well away
from heat. Accessory REMOTE LOG HOUSE (Model "RH") is
available for use as a heat resistant "log" in which the receiver portion of a
Wireless remote option may be located.
Operation Tips: This is a sound operated remote (unlike TV remotes which
Figure 13
are Infrared and operate instantly) and requires you to aim and hold the transmitter for 1 to 3 seconds to
operate. Manual Operation: (Receiver switch position ON or OFF) does not require batteries.
Remote Operation: Requires good batteries. If you turn the gas log on using the remote control and then turn
the set off by sliding the receiver switch from REMOTE to OFF, when you replace the switch to REMOTE it will
remain in the last selected remote position (in this case ON) and turn the gas log on. (see Figure 13)
To shutdown overnight or for any prolonged period, slide receiver switch to "OFF".
Remote Accessory Control (Remote ON-OFF): Place manual switch in the "REMOTE ACCESS
ON" position. Burner "ON" or "O F F" is now controlled by the position of the accessory control being used with the
burner. Individual operating instructions for each Accessory Option are included with the individual accessory.
Remote Accessory Wiring:
From THERMOPILE
Wiring from the Accessory Control (Remote,
Thermostat or Switch) is connected to the two
outside terminals of the Control
Selector
Switch as shown in Figure 14.
NOTE: Wire length for Thermostat or Remote
controls should not exceed 20 feet.
Thermostat wiring should be 20 AWG Type CL2.

Normal Operating Characteristics:
Each and every CHILLBUSTER that leaves the factory is quality checked to ensure compliance with our
American Gas Association certification. This check includes an operational test to ensure both satisfactory
combustion and proper operation.
Each installation site for any vent free heater presents its own unique combustion environment. Specific factors
such as weather tightness of the home, size of the room in which the heater is installed, central heating, ceiling
fans,drafts, altitude, the size of the firebox, paint or soot inside the firebox, etc., all have an influence on the proper
operation of any vent free gas log set.
A normally operating
CHILLBUSTER
Gas Log Heater will possess the following
characteristics:
• Clean burning combustion, which, after normal break in, will produce
no soot or smoke.
• A full bodied, lively flame. The flame will be blue at the base and a
combination of blue and yellow at the body and tips. Figure 16.
• Produce no odor other than the normal odors associated with the
combustion of Natural or Propane gas.
• Will produce water vapor (increase indoor humidity) which may be
Figure 16
beneficial during the dry heating season.
Customer Responsibilities And Annual Maintenance:
• Keep the area around the CHILLBUSTER free and clear from debris. From time to time, visually check pilot and
burner flames for proper appearance (Figures 15 and 16). Normal flame color should be yellow body surrounded
by a hard blue haze.
• The pilot, air shutters and burners must be free of lint and dirt for optimum performance. Air shutters which have
been closed or are obstructed with debris will not allow sufficient combustion air into burner. Air shutters should be
periodically cleaned of debris. Use compressed air or a soft bristle brush to clear pilot and burner(s) air intakes. Air
shutters should not be altered from factory settings. "WARNING: Failure to keep the primary air
opening(s) of the burner(s)clean may result in sooting or property damage."
• Obstructed Pilot Air Intake Ports result in an improper gas/air mixture and a weak pilot flame. Weak pilot flame
is the NUMBER 1 SERVICE ISSUE RE NUISANCE SHUT-OFF. Using canned compressed air , pipe
cleaner or an artist's brush, clean out the opposing Air Intake Ports located at base of Pilot (where gas supply line
attaches to pilot). (Figure 15)
• Do not operate in a dirty firebox or in a previously used firebox which has not had all soot completely removed or it's
chimney flue cleaned. Previously used fireboxes must have flue and stack professionally cleaned by a chimney
sweep. Additionally, firebox walls and damper must also be thoroughly cleaned of all burn residue and soot using a
damp cloth, sponge or brush.
• Do not operate this set with any logs other than the RASMUSSEN CHILLBUSTER Refractory Logs specifically
designed and approved for use with this Burner System.
• Do not use with blower inserts or heat exchangers.
• If used, glass doors must be wide open when burner is on.
• Do not remove Rating Plate/Warning Tags. These tags serve you and any future user as an integral safety and
identification component of the CHILLBUSTER gas log heater. Removing these tags voids the warranty.
• WARNING: Do not allow fans to blow directly into fireplace. Avoid any drafts that alter burner
flame patterns. Do not place blower inside area of firebox. Ceiling fans may create drafts that alter burner flame
patterns. Sooting and improper burning may occur. Sooting can settle on household surfaces outside the fireplace.
• During periods of heavy use, inspect frequently for evidence of sooting. If sooting is present, discontinue
use until source of sooting is determined and corrected.
• Maintain log positioning as shown in Figures 5 and 6 or 7 and 8 at all times.
