SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP-GAS
Propane (LP-Gas) is a flammable gas which can cause fires
and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and
colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions
which can protect both you and your family from an accident.
Read them carefully now, then review them point by point
with the members of your household. Someday when there
may not be a minute to lose, everyone's safety will depend on
knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following
information, you feel you still need more information, please
contact your gas supplier.
LP-GAS WARNING ODOR
If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.
That's your signal to go into immediate action!
•
•
•
•
Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your
phone. Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.
Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
Do that IMMEDIATELY.
Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.
LP-Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas such
as basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak,
keep out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until
firefighters declare them to be safe.
•
•
Use your neighbor's phone and call a trained LP-Gas service
person and the fire department. Even though you may not
continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do not
re-enter the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for escaped
gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly
trained LP-Gas service people should repair the leak, then
check and relight the gas appliance for you.
NO ODOR DETECTED - ODOR FADE
Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the
odor of the chemical put into the gas. You must find out if you
can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease your
ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect your
sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors
in the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the gas odor
or their minds are on something else. Thinking about smelling a
gas odor can make it easier to smell.
The odorant in LP-gas is colorless, and it can fade under some
circumstances. For example, if there is an underground leak, the
movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants
in LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading can occur if
there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into walls,
masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will take
some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.
LP-Gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could
vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be
more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest gas
odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately
go into action as instructed earlier.
SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER
•
Learn to recognize the odor of LP-gas. Your local LP-Gas
Dealer can give you a "Scratch and Sniff" pamphlet. Use it
to find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect
that your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your
LP-Gas Dealer.
•
If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform
service, or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gas
system. If you are qualified, consciously think about the odor
of LP-Gas prior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service or making adjustments.
•
Sometimes a basement or a closed-up house has a musty
smell that can cover up the LP-Gas odor. Do not try to light
pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area
where the conditions are such that you may not detect the
odor if there has been a leak of LP-Gas.
•
Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls
of new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people
should be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or
cylinders are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new
tanks, or reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed
to set too long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which
Page 4
have been out of service for a time may develop internal rust
which will cause odor fade. If such conditions are suspected
to exist, a periodic sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you
have any question about the gas odor, call your LP-gas
dealer. A periodic sniff test of the LP-gas is a good safety
measure under any condition.
•
If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gas odorant and you
think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the same
immediate action recommended above for the occasion when
you do detect the odorized LP-Gas.
•
If you experience a complete "gas out," (the container is under no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately.
If the container valve is left on, the container may draw in
some air through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this
occurs, some new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is
left open, then treat the container as a new tank. Always be
sure your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off
at the container before it goes completely empty or having
it refilled before it is completely empty.

Note: Never use plastic pipe. Check to confirm whether your local
codes allow copper tubing or galvanized.
Note: Since some municipalities have additional local codes,
it is always best to consult your local authority and installation
code.
The use of the following gas connectors is recommended:
— ANS Z21.24 Appliance Connectors of Corrugated Metal
Tubing and Fittings
— ANS Z21.45 Assembled Flexible Appliance Connectors of
Other Than All-Metal Construction
The above connectors may be used if acceptable by the authority
having jurisdiction. The state of Massachusetts requires that a
flexible appliance connector cannot exceed three feet in length.
Installing a New Main Gas Cock
Each appliance should have its own manual gas cock.
A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of
the unit. Where none exists, or where its size or location is not
adequate, contact your local authorized installer for installation
or relocation.
Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant
to the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be
checked for leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap
solution watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if
unexposed, a pressure test should be made.
Never use an exposed flame to check for leaks. Appliance must
be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe
capped or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with
appliance connected; control valve will sustain damage!
NOTE: The gas control is equipped with a captured screw type
pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to provide a 1/8"
test point up stream of the control.
A gas valve and ground joint union should be installed in the gas
line upstream of the gas control to aid in servicing. It is required
by the National Fuel Gas Code that a drip line be installed near
the gas inlet. This should consist of a vertical length of pipe tee
connected into the gas line that is capped on the bottom in which
condensation and foreign particles may collect.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings.
Always provide a union so that gas line can be easily disconnected
for burner servicing.
The appliance and it's individual shut off valve must be disconnected
from supply piping system during any pressure testing of that
system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
The appliance 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 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
Attention! If one of the procedures results in pressures in excess
of 1/2 psig (14" w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the fireplace gas valve, it will
result in a hazardous condition.
Figure 1
15627-5-0807
Checking Manifold Pressure
Both Propane and Natural gas valves have a built-in pressure
regulator in the gas valve. Natural gas models will have a manifold
pressure of approximately 3.5" w.c. (.871kPa) for maximum input
or 1.7" w.c. (.423kPa) for minimum input at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 5.0" w.c.
(1.245kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
10.5" (2.615kPa) w.c. Propane gas models will have a manifold
pressure approximately 10.0"w.c. (2.49kPa) for maximum input
or 5.9" w.c. (1.469kPa) for minimum input at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 11.0" w.c.
(2.739kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
13.0" w.c. (3.237kPa).
A 1/8" (3mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge
connection, is located on the outlet side of the gas control.

OPERATING GUIDELINES
Before operating this heater, please review the safety warnings
pages at the beginning of this manual and those precautions and
warnings listed below.
1. Know what type of ignition system this model has (standing
pilot) and follow the applicable SAFETY and LIGHTING
instructions.
2. Check to ensure there are no gas leaks. If you are unsure,
turn gas off to the heater and call a service person or your gas
utility.
CAUTION: Clothing or other flammable material should not
be placed on or near the appliance.
WARNING: Children and adults should be alerted to the
hazard of high surface temperature and should stay away
to avoid burns or clothing ignition. Young children should
be carefully supervised when they are in the same room
as the appliance.
3. Tampering is DANGEROUS and voids all warranties. Any
component that is found to be faulty, must be replaced with
an approved component.
Initial Lighting (Figure 14)
Upon completing the gas line or turning the gas valve "ON" after it
has been in the "OFF" position, a small amount of air will be in the
lines. When first lighting the appliance, it will take a few minutes
for the lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is
complete, the appliance will light and operate satisfactorily.
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such purging
if the gas valve is not turned to "OFF."
Standing Pilot Operation
1. Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for
standing pilot controls found in this manual and on labels found
attached to the appliance.
CAUTION: During the initial purging and subsequent
lightings, never allow the gas valve control knob to remain
depressed in the "pilot" position without pushing the piezo
ignitor button at least once every second.
2. During the heating season, leave the control valve knob in the
"ON" position. This will allow the pilot flame to remain lit.
Turn the burner flame on or off with the appliance ON/OFF
rocker switch, wall switch, remote control kits or 750 millivolt
wall thermostat.
NOTE: The gas control valve allows you to increase or decrease the
height of the main burner flame. The control valve has a pressure
regulator with a knob as shown in Figure 14. Rotate the knob
clockwise to "HI" to increase the flame height and counterclockwise
to "LO" to decrease the flame height.
3. When the heating season is over, turn the on/off switch to
"OFF" and the control valve to "OFF". The system, including
the pilot light, will be shut down.
Figure 14
Maximum and Minimum Input
The gas valve on the appliance allows the input to adjust between
a maximum input of 30,000 to a minimum input of 21,000 Btuh.
Please be advised, the maximum input provides the greatest amount
of yellow flame and ember glow on the log set. The minimum
input substantially decreases the yellow flame and ember glow
on the log set.
VENT SAFETY SHUTOFF SYSTEM
This heater must be properly connected to a venting system. This
heater is equipped with a vent safety shutoff system.
Warning:
Operation of this heater, when not connected to a properly
installed and maintained venting system or tampering
with the vent safety shutoff system, can result in carbon
monoxide (CO) poisoning and possible death.
This appliance needs fresh air for safe operation and must be
installed so there are provisions for adequate combustion and
ventilation air.
Reversible Vertical or Horizontal Draft Diverter
This fireplace heater has a reversible draft diverter. The draft
diverter is installed in the vertical position at the factory. Please
use the following steps to change the draft diverter from the vertical
position to the horizontal position.
1. Remove (8) hex-head screws located adjacent to the flue collar
on the draft diverter.
2. Rotate flue collar to the horizontal position on the draft
diverter.
3. Attach flue collar to draft diverter with (8) hex-head screws from
Step 1.
This fireplace heater is equipped with a vent safety switch. The
vent safety switch will cause gas flow to the pilot to "shut off"
due to improper venting or a blocked flue.
If the vent safety switch continues to "shut off" the gas flow to
the pilot a qualified service person must be contacted to inspect
for improper venting, blockage in the vent pipe or the vent safety
switch for being defective.
Page 14
15627-5-0807
VENTING
Venting
1. Flue pipe must be as large as the flue collar on the draft
diverter.
2. Maintain an upward slope of at least 1/4 inch (6mm) per
foot of horizontal run.
3. Run flue pipe as directly as possible with a minimum of
elbows.
4. Flue pipe should extend through the wall of a chimney
to be flush with inner wall.
5. Flue pipe must be adequately supported by metal
straps.
6. Single wall vent pipe may be attached directly to the draft
hood of the fireplace heater when a clearance of 2 1/2 inches
(64mm) is maintained between the single wall vent pipe and
the combustible wall of the room in which the fireplace heater
is located. Use double wall vent pipe for clearances less than
2 1/2 inches (64mm) to combustibles.
7. For flue pipe running through walls and roof, use B-1 [1
inch (25mm) clearance to combustibles] vent pipe.
8. Chimneys should extend at least 2 feet (.6m) above the
roof and above any object or nearby building within 10 feet
(3m).
9. Open tees should not be used in the flue pipe.
10. Appliance must not be connected to a chimney flue that is
servicing a separate solid-fuel burning appliance.
For proper venting, do not attach a 90° elbow directly to draft
diverter. If possible, attach 2 feet (.6m) of straight vent pipe before
an elbow is used. Use of 45° elbows is recommended.
zone as the combustion air inlet to the appliance and shall be so
located so that the relief opening is accessible for checking vent
operation.
Liner and Insulated Liner
When you install a vented fireplace heater into a masonry chimney
you must follow these steps.
1. The chimney must be lined and sized properly. Most masonry
chimneys are over sized and absorb too much heat to be
considered a proper vent. If you have any doubts line the
chimney with the right size liner. If it's unlined you must line
it.
2. Use an insulated liner when the chimney is on the outside,
three sides exposed to the weather, and there is no clay liner
in the chimney. The insulation will help keep the flue gases
warmer.
Insulated Vent Enclosure (Figure 15)
Vented fireplace heaters installed with the vent going directly to
the outside and above the eaves can cause poor venting. The cold
pipe will have a delay in proper venting and cause the fireplace
heater to shut "off" by the vent safety switch. To prevent delayed
venting as well as condensation of flue products an insulated
enclosure is recommended.
Use type B 4" (102mm) diameter vent pipe and maintain at least
a one inch (25mm) clearance to combustibles.
Use metal thimble to protect vent pipe as it passes through
combustibles
Uninsulated single-wall metal pipe shall not be used outdoors
in cold climates for venting gas utilization equipment.
Ventilation and Combustion Air
Fireplace heaters shall be installed in a location in which the
facilities for ventilation permit satisfactory combustion of gas
and proper venting under normal conditions. In buildings of
conventional frame, brick or stone construction without tight storm
windows and doors, infiltration is normally adequate to provide
for combustion and draft hood dilution.
Where appliances are installed in a confined space within a
building, the building being of unusually tight construction, air for
combustion and ventilation must be obtained directly from outdoors
or from such spaces that freely communicate with the outdoors.
Under these conditions, the confined space shall be provided with
two permanent openings, one near the top of the enclosure and one
near the bottom; each opening shall have a free area of not less
than one square inch (6.5cm2) per 1,000 BTU's (.3KW) of total
input. The draft hood must be in the same atmospheric pressure

MAINTENANCE (continued)
Glass Cleaning
It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically. During start-up
condensation, which is normal, forms on the inside of the glass and
causes lint, dust and other airborne particles to cling to the glass
surface. Also initial paint curing may deposit a slight film on the
glass. It is therefore recommended that the glass be cleaned two
or three times with a non-abrasive household cleaner and warm
water (we recommend gas fireplace glass cleaner). We do not
recommend using packaged spray type household glass cleaner.
After that the glass should be cleaned two or three times during
each heating season depending on the circumstances present.
General Glass Information

TROUBLESHOOTING
With proper installation and maintenance, your new Vented Fireplace Heater should provide years of trouble-free service. If you
do experience a problem, refer to Trouble Shooting Guide below. This guide will assist a qualified service person in the diagnosis
of problems and the corrective action to be taken.
1. Spark ignitor will not light pilot after repeated depressing
of piezo ignitor button.
a. Defective ignitor (no spark at electrode)
- Check for spark at electrode and pilot; if no spark and
electrode wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
b. No gas or low gas pressure.
- Check remote shut off valves from fireplace. Usually there
is a valve near the main. There can be more than one (1)
valve between the heater and main.
- Low pressure can be caused by a variety of situations
such as a bent line, too narrow diameter of pipe, or low
line pressure. Consult with plumber of gas supplier.
c. No LP in tank.
- Check LP (propane) tank. Refill tank.
2. Pilot will not stay lit after carefully following lighting
instructions.
a. Defective thermopile.
- Check that pilot flame impinges on thermopile. Clean
and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement.
- Ensure that the thermopile connection at the gas valve is
tight.
3. Pilot burning, no gas to burner, valve knob "ON", on/off
switch "ON."
a. "On/Off" switch, wall switch, or wires defective.
- Check "on/off" switch and wires for proper connections.
Place jumper wires across terminal at switch - if burner
comes on, replace defective switch. If OK, place jumper
wires across switch wires at gas valve-if burner comes on,
wires are faulty or connections are bad.
b. Thermopile may not be generating sufficient millivoltage.
- If the pilot flame is not close enough physically to the
thermopile, adjust the pilot flame.
- Be sure the wire connections from the thermopile at the
gas valve terminals are tight and the thermopile is fully
inserted into the pilot bracket.
- Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take the
reading at TH-TP & TP terminals of the gas valve. The
meter should read 325 millivolts minimum, while holding
the valve knob depressed the pilot position, with the pilot
lit, and the ON/OFF switch in the OFF position. Replace
the faulty thermopile if the reading is below the specified
minimum.
15627-5-0807
- With the pilot in the ON position, disconnect the thermopile
leads from the valve. Take a reading at the thermopile leads.
The reading should be 325 millivolts minimum. Replace
the thermopile if the reading is below the minimum.
c. Defective valve.
- Turn valve knob to "ON." Place ON/OFF switch to
"ON." Check with millivolt meter at thermopile terminals.
Millivolt meter should read greater than 100 M.V. If the
reading is okay and the burner does not come, replace the
gas valve.
d. Plugged main burner orifice.
- Check main burner orifice for blockage, clean main burner
orifice.
4. Frequent pilot outage problem.
a. Pilot flame may be too high or too low, or blowing (high),
causing pilot safety to drop out.
- Clean and adjust flame for maximum flame impingement
on the thermopile. Follow lighting instructions carefully.
5. The pilot and main burner extinguish while in operation.
a. No LP (Propane) in tank..
- Check LP (Propane) tank. Refill fuel tank.
b. Bad thermopile.
- Replace if necessary.
c. Improper vent cap installation.
- Check for proper installation and freedom from debris or
blockage.
6. Glass soots.
a. Flame impingement on logs.
- Adjust the log set so that the flame does not excessively
impinge on it.
b. Improper air shutter adjustment.
- Adjust the air shutter.
7. Flame lifts off main burner.
a. Insufficient oxygen being supplied.
- Check to make sure vent cap is installed properly and free
of debris. Make sure that vent system joints are tight and
have no leaks.
- Check to make sure that no material has been placed at
the burner base.

Cleaning
The blower wheel will collect lint and could require cleaning once
a year. If the air output decreases or the noise level increases, it
indicates a dirty wheel.
Blower Motor
The blower motor does not have oiling holes. Do not attempt to
oil blower motor.
Wiring
The appliance, when installed, must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes,
with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 or Canadian
Electrical Code, CSA C22.1, if an external electrical source
is utilized. This appliance is equipped with a three-prong
[grounding] plug for your protection against shock hazard
and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded
three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding
prong from this plug. For an ungrounded receptacle, an adapter,
which has two prongs and a wire for grounding, can be purchased,
plugged into the ungrounded receptacle and its wire connected to
the receptacle mounting screws. With this wire completing the
ground, the appliance cord plug can be plugged into the adapter
and be electrically grounded.
CAUTION: Label all wires prior to disconnection when servicing
controls. Wiring errors can cause improper and dangerous
operation. Verify proper operation after servicing.
WARNING:
Unplugging of blower accessory will not stop the heater
from cycling. To shut heater off: Turn temperature dial
or thermostat to lowest setting. Turn knob on gas control
to "OFF", depressing slightly. Do not force.
