Installation
Installing The Gas Line
Installing The Remote Switch
The gas line must be installed before finishing the M40DV-PFC fireplace. Natural Gas requires a minimum inlet gas supply pressure of
5.5" W.C. & a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C. Propane Gas requires a
minimum inlet gas supply pressure of 11" W.C. & a manifold pressure
of 10" W.C. Provision must also be made for a 1/8" N.P.T. plugged
tapping and be accessible for test gauge connection immediately upstream of the gas supply controls to the appliance. The fireplace gas
connection and the main operating gas valve are located behind the
removable trim at the bottom of the unit and need only be attached
to the gas line with an approved fitting, as required by the applicable
installation codes.
The M40DV-PFC is equipped with a remote-operated valve for use
with a wall switch. See Figure 20 for information on wiring the switch.
The valve is pre-wired and generates its own power. DO NOT connect any external power to it.
• Only use gas shut-off valves approved for use by the state, province,
region, or governing body, in which the appliance is being installed, or
as required by the applicable installation codes.
Installation Requirements
• Flexible gas connectors must not exceed 3 feet in length, unless it is
allowable within applicable installation codes.
Figure 3. Gas line access.
The appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that
system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by
closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing
of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
* After gas line is connected each appliance connection,
valve and valve train must be checked while under normal
operating pressure with either a liquid solution, or leak detection device, to locate any source of leak. Tighten any areas
where bubbling appears or leak is detected until bubbling
stops completely or leak is no longer detected. Do NOT use
a flame of any kind to test for leaks.
P/N XG0205
Note: The switch location must not exceed 30' from the fireplace.
Vent Installation
This section covers the installation of direct venting and terminations.
For a detailed diagram of allowed termination locations, see Appendix A.
 The M40DV-PFC fireplace uses Premium venting components
with:
5" inner dia. /8" outer dia.
 Minimum clearance to combustible construction around the
vent pipe is 1" on all sides, except on horizontal venting where
the top of the pipe must have a clearance of at least 2".
 Use only certified Montigo vent components. (Use of other parts
will void the Montigo warranty, and may impede the operation of
the fireplace.)
 All joints must be secured with a minimum of two screws per joint
 Vent terminations must not be recessed in walls or siding
 Horizontal runs must be supported by a minimum of two supports
per horizontal run. A minimum of one screw on each side of support is also required
 Flex vent sections may be stretched up to 50% of their total length
(eg. a 24" section may be stretched to 36")
 Maximum horizontal run for a flex section with no vertical rise is 3
feet.
 Flex vent sections over 3 feet must fall within the limits set by the
venting graph and must have a minimum vertical rise of 3 inches
per foot of flex.
 Venting components can be used in any combination of solid/rigid
 Solid vent sections may be cut less than half way from the tapered
end
Cautions:
 Vent terminations can be very hot. If the termination is less than
7 feet above a public walkway, it should be fitted with a certified
Montigo Heat Guard. (Part no. PTKOG)
 Do not obstruct, or attempt to conceal, the vent termination.
These actions will affect the operation of the fireplace, and may
be hazardous.
 In heavy snow areas, take extra care to prevent snow buildup
from obstructing the vent termination.

Venting Requirements
If your installation requires more than 12" of horizontal venting, some
vertical lift is required. Use the vent graph below to determine an
acceptable vent run. Unacceptable venting can affect the fireplace's
performance.
 the maximum horizontal vent run is 16 feet
The Rear Vent Venting Graph
Measure the vertical height from the fireplace hearth to the centre of
the termination and the horizontal run from the from the fireplace flue
collar to the wall flange of the termination. Plot on the Venting Graph
(Fig. 6) with an 'X'.
If the 'X' falls on or above the top boundary of the shaded area, the
installation is acceptable.
Figure 6. Rear Vent Venting Graph.
Example A: (Acceptable Installation)
If the vertical dimension from the hearth is 82", and the horizontal run to the wall flange of the vent termination is 156", this
would be an acceptable installation.
Example B: (Acceptable Installation)
Figure 5a. Installing the flue cover.
If the vertical dimension from the hearth is 72" and the horizontal
run to the wall flange of the vent termination is 36", this would be
an acceptable installation.
Example C: (Unacceptable Installation)
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the fireplace is 48" and
the horizontal run to the wall flange of the vent termination is
108", this would not be an acceptable installation.

RHS101 ( for 5"/8" venting)
For longer or more complex vent runs, vertical lift is required. First
ensure that the planned run is acceptable using the Vent Graph. Plan
out the required components using the chart above. You may be able
to use fewer components using the chart below.
Short Configurations:
For installations straight through the wall, use an PTO-3/-3F termination and PXT-5 or PXT-10 to achieve the desired length. The maximum horizontal vent run with no vertical lift is 12". See Figure 7.
Example:
A 10' section of rigid pipe and a 90° elbow may be used in conjunction with a 3 ft. flex section (PFL-3) will, when extended in a chase,
allow for a maximum horizontal run of twelve and one-half feet from
the centre of the fireplace to outside wall and a minimum of 7'6" when
retracted in opposite direction. (See Figure 9.)
"D" flex sections and "E" solid sections may be used in conjunction
with one another to obtain different possible horizontal length installations. NOTE: Flex section must not exceed maximum horizontal
length of 4 feet, and for this application the top clearance is to the
Figure 7. Short horizontal installation.
Heat Shields
Due to high flue temperatures, the heat shield (RHS101) must be
used on all straight through the wall installations, at the point
where the vent pipe connects to the termination. With the heat shield,
the framing dimensions for the terminations can be at 11" x 11". The
heat shield is not included with the fireplace.

Top Vent Venting Requirements
Before you install any venting, you must determine whether the
venting run will be acceptable. Unacceptable venting can affect the
fireplace's combustion.
 for installations with horizontal venting runs of 0-16 feet, use the
vent graph, as described below
 the maximum horizontal vent run is 16 feet.
The Rear Vent Venting Graph
Measure the vertical height from the fireplace hearth to the centre of
the termination and the horizontal run from the from the fireplace flue
collar to the wall flange of the termination. Plot on the Venting Graph
(Fig. 12) with an 'X'.
If the 'X' falls on or above the top boundary of the shaded area, the
installation is acceptable.
Example A: (Acceptable Installation)
If the vertical dimension from the hearth is 72", and the horizontal run to the wall flange of the vent termination is 120", this
would be an acceptable installation.
Example B: (Acceptable Installation)

Mantels & Surrounds
NOTE: Mantel clearances are for fire hazard prevention to combustible materials.
New technology, to meet consumer and government demands for the
wise use of energy, has prompted us to manufacture many models of
fireplaces which are hot, fuel and energy efficient.
Please be aware; temperatures over the mantel will rise above normal
room temperature and walls above fireplace may be hot to touch.
We recommend careful consideration be given to the effects of
elevated mantel temperatures which may be in excess of product
design, for example: candles, plastic or pictures. This can cause melting, deformation, discoloration or premature failure of T.V. and radio
Finishing Around the Fireplace
Combustible mantels and mouldings may be safely installed over the
top and on the front of the fireplace provided that they do not project
beyond shaded area shown in Figure 20a. Side wall clearances are
0". Combustible surrounds may be installed with 0" clearance to the
side of the fireplace as shown in Figure 20b.
Fireplace Facing
When selecting the finish material for your fireplace, it is important to
remember the following: LOUVRE TRIMS AND FIREPLACE FRAME
MUST NOT BE OBSTRUCTED IN ANY WAY - to do so restricts
the air supply for the control compartments and heat exchanger
it also prevents access for servicing controls.
The face of the fireplace may be painted to match the room decor,
provided you use a heat-resistant paint. Decorative facing must not
extend past the fireplace opening at all, because it will interfere with
the access to retainers for removal of glass door. When using a tile
facing, It is required not to tile over the outside frame of the fireplace, as this will obstruct the door removal. See Figure 20c.

General
 Have the fireplace installation inspected yearly, including a visual
check of the vent system, the burner and the pilot flame. For convenience a 1/8" manifold pressure tap is supplied on the gas valve
for a test gauge connection. See Figure 25.
 For Natural Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure
of 5.5" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C.
 For Propane Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure of 11" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 10" W.C.
 Always keep the fireplace area clear and free of combustible
materials, as well as gasoline and other flammable vapours and
liquids.
 Do not use this appliance if any part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the appliance
and to replace any part of the control system and any gas control
which has been under water.

Pilot Burner Adjustment
1. Locate Pilot Adjustment Screw. (See figure 25.)
2. Adjust pilot key to provide properly sized flame. (See figure 26).
3. After installing or servicing, leak test with a soap solution with
main burner on. Coat pipe and tubing joints, gasket etc. with soap
solution. Bubbles indicate leaks. Tighten any areas where the
bubbles appear until the bubbling stops completely.
Cleaning
When the fireplace is first activated, there may be some smoking and
a visible film may be left on the glass. This is a normal condition, and
is the result of burning the protective coatings on new metal.
 Glass must be cleaned periodically to remove any film (a normal
bi-product of combustion) which may be visible. Film can easily
be removed by removing the door, as shown on page 13. Handle
the door carefully, and clean it with an approved glass cleaner.
One of the most effective products is Kel Kem.
 Silicone seals on inner door during initial firing will "off gas",
leaving a visual deposit of a white substance on combustion
chamber walls. This can easily be removed by following the steps
described below.
 Use a vacuum cleaner or soft bristle brush to keep the control
compartment, burner, and firebox free from dust and lint. Figure 26. Pilot Burner
CAUTION!
 Fireplace gas control must be in the “OFF” position and pilot
and main burners extinguished when cleaning appliance with
a vacuum.
 Doors can get very hot. Handle only when cool.
