BEFORE YOU BEGIN - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Before You Begin, review the information and
safeguards below about the installation and operation
of the Real-Fyre® gas log set.
Fig. 5-1
Fireplace dimensions
Check to be sure that the fireplace meets the venting
and construction requirements for the installation
of the Real-Fyre® gas log set.

THIS BURNER IS DESIGNED FOR USE WITH
PROPANE OR NATURAL GAS. Never use natural gas
in a log set designed for use with propane gas and never
use propane gas in a burner designed for natural gas.
Depth
Front
width opening
This product is not recommended for use in
temperatures below 32°F.
The fireplace must have a gas supply line that has
been installed by a qualified technician in accordance
with all local codes. The gas supply line must have a
½" minimum interior diameter. If the gas line to the
fireplace is longer than 20', a larger diameter line may
be necessary.
Be sure the gas log set is properly sized for the
fireplace. Improper sizing may negatively impact the
proper drafting of the fireplace. Additionally, too large
a log set will adversely affect the burn and hamper the
proper operation of the control system. Too small a log
set will diminish the beauty of the hearth setting. Fig.
5-1 illustrates the critical dimensions of the firebox.
Be sure to clean the fireplace floor of any ashes or other
foreign materials. It is recommended that the fireplace
and chimney be examined and cleaned by a chimney
sweep or other qualified person before you install the
Real-Fyre® gas log set, and annually thereafter.
This gas log set must be installed by an NFI Certified
or other qualified professional installer. The RealFyre® gas log set is to be installed only in a solid-fuel
burning fireplace with a working flue and constructed
of noncombustible material. The fireplace must have
an open damper. The chimney must be free of any
obstructions.

Required Gas Pressure: The minimum inlet gassupply pressure for the purpose of input adjustment
is 5" for natural gas and 10" for propane gas. The
maximum inlet gas-supply pressure for this burner is
10.5" for natural gas and 13" for propane gas.
Testing the Gas Supply System: The gas log set and
its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from
the gas supply piping system while performing any
tests of the piping system at pressures in excess of ½
psig (3.5 kPa). The gas log set must be isolated from
the gas supply piping system by closing its individual
manual shut-off valve during any pressure testing of
the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal
to or less than ½ psig (3.5 kPa). This is accomplished
by closing the gas supply line valve, which is required
by NFPA 54, section 5.54.

Granules
3. Pour a small amount of the granules along the outside edges
of the burner pan (Fig. 7-2). This prevents flame diversion.
EMBER PLACEMENT
Sprinkle the glowing embers (Item 10) lightly and evenly over the entire surface of the granules (in the pan only). Break up
any clumps that may have developed during shipment. (For Charred series log sets, refer to OPTIONAL CHARRED
SERIES INSTALLATION section.)
Important: Do not add any additional embers to this log set. Any additional embers may cause unsafe operation.
GRATE PLACEMENT
Replace the grate so that the stabilizer clips fit over the back edge of the pan, locking it in position.
LOG PLACEMENT
CAUTION: Burn hazard. Logs will remain hot for some time after use. You must maintain the
log layout as shown to ensure proper operation of your log set. If you need to
reposition any log to maintain the proper layout, use heat-resistant gloves or allow

3. Top logs should be stacked diagonally, with the
largest at the bottom (Fig. 8-3, #3 & 4), and with
spaces between the logs so that the flames are not choked off. Place the smaller logs diagonally across
the larger ones (see Fig. 8-4, #5 & #6). The top logs may be moved to achieve desired flame pattern.
Some carbon buildup (sooting) may occur where the flames impinge on the logs and should not be a
concern unless excessive. If sooting is excessive, rearrange the top logs to reduce flame impingement.
Examples of log stacks are shown below.
Note: Although log styles may differ in pattern or shape ( Fig. 8-6), layout is essentially the same. Adequate
spacing between the logs is NECESSARY and MUST be maintained for best performance.

OPERATING THE LOG SET - LIGHTING AND EXTINGUISHING
FOR YOUR SAFETY, READ BEFORE LIGHTING
WARNING:
If you do not follow these instructions exactly, a fire or explosion may result, causing property
damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
A. BEFORE LIGHTING, smell all around the gas
log set area for gas. Be sure to smell next to the
floor because some gas is heavier than air and
will settle on the floor.
B. IF YOU SMELL GAS:
• Shut off the gas to the appliance.
• Extinguish any open flame.
• If odor continues, keep away from the
appliance, and immediately call the gas
supplier or fire department.
C. Use only your hand to push in or turn the gas
control knob. Never use tools. If the knob will not
push in or turn by hand, don’t try to repair it. Call
a qualified service technician. Force or attempted
repair may result in fire or explosion.
D. Do not use the gas log set if any part has been
underwater. Immediately call a qualified service
technician to inspect the gas log set and to replace
any part of the control system and any gas control
that has been underwater.
LIGHTING THE GAS LOG SET
1. After you have finished checking for leaks, ensure that the unit is turned completely off by pushing in the
ON/OFF control knob and turning clockwise toward OFF until you reach a stop.
2. Turn the ON/OFF control knob counter-clockwise to the ON position. DO NOT PUSH KNOB IN!
Note: You should not hear or smell any gas at this point.
3. Wait five (5) minutes to clear out any gas. Smell for gas, including near the floor. If you smell gas, stop
and follow step B of the safety information above. If you don’t smell gas, go to the next step.
4. LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
a. Press and hold in the electronic ignitor button. The ignitor will spark with a rapid clicking noise.
b. While holding in the electronic ignitor, push in the ON/OFF control knob to open the valve. Burner will
now ignite at the maximum BTU input.
c. Continue to hold knob for 10-15 seconds; this will allow the safety valve to activate and the main burner
to remain burning.
Note: Electronic igniter may not properly operate when exposed to high moisture. To manually light the
burner, lay a long-stem match on the surface of the embers near the gas inlet (do not hold the
match in your hand) or use a lighted long necked butane lighter.
TURNING OFF THE GAS LOG SET

TECHNICAL DATA AND SPECIFICATION INFORMATION
MAINTENANCE
SERVICE
Once installed and operating properly, the RealFyre® gas log set requires very little maintenance.
You should inspect the log set and control annually
for the following:
1. Excessive sooting - Some sooting of the log set
is normal and adds to the appearance of burned
wood. If sooting accumulates, you may brush the
soot off with a stiff brush. Do not use water or
soot cleaners to clean off the soot.
While some minor service conditions may
be handled by the owner of the log set, it is
recommended that a qualified service technician be
called to service the gas log set and control should
service be required. The TROUBLESHOOTING
section of these instructions serves as a guide for
ensuring optimum performance of the gas log set.
2. Settling of glowing embers and granules Moisture may cause the granules and glowing
embers in the burner pan to settle and affect
the burn. Using a screwdriver or flat blade knife,
carefully stir the granules and embers, loosening
the materials.
FLAME DESCRIPTION
Observe the flames. The main burner flames should
be blue at the base and a combination of blue/
yellow at the body and at the tips. They should be
5" to 8" above the logs, with the center flame being
the tallest (see cover photo). Flames in the ember
burner should be 1/4" above the embers.
3. Debris around the control - Inspect the control
to be sure it is free of any dirt or debris.
To adjust the flame pattern, take a long blade screwdriver or similar tool and stir the granules until the desired
pattern is achieved. DO NOT REMOVE GRANULES FROM THE BURNER PAN
Long bladed screwdriver
(or similar)
Insert blade into granules and
stir in various places until desired
flame pattern is achieved.

3' taller than anything within
10’ of it in all directions. If
not, consult a chimney sweep.
Chimney cap or fan may help.
Under severe conditions, you
may need to open a window
near the fireplace about 1" to
2" when burning the log set.
B. Use only a natural gas set
with natural gas. Use only a
propane gas set with propane
gas.
C. Open damper fully when
operating gas log set.
D. Move set so that the back of
the grate touches the back wall
of the firebox.
E. Be sure the bottom logs are
spaced at least 3" apart. Top
logs should be placed to
minimize flame impingement.
F. Open air mixer completely.
A. Consult the dealer for proper
set.
B. Other gas appliances may
be competing for gas supply.
Consult installer or plumber.
Orifice size is based upon 7"
w.c. pressure for natural gas
and 11" w.c. pressure propane
gas. Plumbing must supply
adequate pressure.
C. Clean out blockage. If
connector kit is kinked, replace
it.
D. Open valve fully.
