Installing The Gas Line
The gas line must be installed before finishing the L52DF 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 is 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.
To access the fireplace gas connection the main burner must be
removed as shown below in figure 5a.
• 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.
• Flexible gas connectors must not exceed 3 feet in length, unless it is
allowable within applicable installation codes.

Montigo warranty, and may impede the operation of the fireplace.)
QQ
All joints must be secured with a minimum of two screws per joint
QQ
Vent terminations must not be recessed in walls or siding
QQ
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
QQ
Flex vent sections may be stretched up to 50% of their total length (eg. a
24" section may be stretched to 36")
QQ
Maximum horizontal run with no vertical rise is 6 feet.
QQ
Flex vent sections over 6 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.
QQ
Solid vent sections may be cut less than half way from the female end
QQ
Venting components can be used in any combination of solid/rigid pipe or
flex pipe and in any orientation (Male connectors can face in any direction)
Vent Terminations
Selecting A Termination Location
Choosing your vent termination location will help to determine whether
you need to use a top vent or rear vent fireplace. Figure 6a, below, shows
typical fireplace locations and the venting options they provide. For a more detailed diagram of allowed termination locations, see Appendix A.
10 to center
Figure 5a. Gas line access.
The appliance and its individual shut-off 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 shut-off valve during any pressure testing
of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Note: 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.

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.
Use Montigo VSS Vinyl Heat Shield when using on
applications with vinyl siding to guard against possible
damage.

it to the PEL-45 (45° elbow). Cut the PXT-18 to suit and insert it into
the PEL-45. Slide the fireplace into position, and then connect it to
the exterior termination.
For more difficult installation situations, the L52DF Rear Vent must be
installed with only one or two 90° elbows. If using either of these installation
options, you must adhere to MIN, two of the following guidelines:
 One 90° elbow must be placed directly on the flue collar; then travel
vertical, vent through the roof to termination.
 Or, you must use two 90° elbows; have a minimum vertical lift of 50"
(measured from the hearth) As shown in Figure 23.
PXT-18
PEL-45 Elbow
PEL-90 Elbow
 IMPORTANT: For both Rear-Elbow installations your vent run must
fall within the limits set by the Graph, Figure 22c
Before you install any venting, you must determine whether the venting
run will be acceptable. Unacceptable venting can affect the fireplace's
combustion.
The 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. 22c) with an 'X'.
Figure 20. Corner installation.
If the 'X' falls on or above the top boundary of the shaded area, the
installation is acceptable.
Important: Corner Installation is available only for
Top Vent Units.
3. Corner Installation — 45° or less.
Use an PTO-3 termination and an PFL-1 or PFL-2 (12" or 24"
compressed length) and a frame, if appropriate. Flex may be turned to
obtain desired degree of angle required but must not exceed 45°.

configuration, one 90degree elbow off the back and straight up through
the roof of the structure, or Figure 23 with two elbows.
Heat Shield
The heat shield (RHS101) must be used on all installations straight
through the wall, at the point where the vent pipe connects to the
termination. With the heat shield, proper vent clearances can be
maintained. The heat shield is not included with the fireplace.
To install the heat shield, slide one section over the vent pipe on the inside
of the wall opening, with the circular portion inside the wall cavity. Screw
the shield in place over the wall opening. Install the second section on
the outside of the wall opening sliding the circular portion into the wall
opening. Refer to Figure 19.

NOTES:
All dimension lengths for vertical or horizontal runs are
measured from center of the vent pipe.
IMPORTANT: Venting runs must fall within the limits set
by the venting graph (see Figure 22c).
Page 12
Figure 23. Multi-elbow installation.
For L52DF distance 'H' must be a minimum of 50".The vent
run must comply with figure 22c.
Reduced Vertical Installation
(Available with Linear LDVPV47 Power Vent
ONLY)
It is possible to reduce vertical vent runs from 5"/8" venting to 4"/7"
venting. Reduced vertical venting may only be used when the Linear
(In-line) Power Vent is required. This is commonly due to longer than
normal vent runs, or unusually long horizontal Vent runs.

Installing The Horizontal &
Vertical Exterior Power Vent
A Power Vent is required where the Termination is located too far
away from the gas fireplace and/or if the vent run is beyond the scope
of this document, or the specifications recommend vent augmentation. There are four 4/7 Power Vent models available. These Power
Vents are required for Superior venting, safe operation & years of
trouble free operation.
The available Montigo Power Vent models are:
LDVPV47 (Linear, Interior In-line Power Vent, document, XG0700).
EDVPV47 (External Power Vent Module, document, XG0750).
EDVRSPV47 (Exterior Vertical Roof mount 4/7 stainless steel Power
Vent system, document, XG1303)
EDVWSPV47 (Exterior Horizontal Wall mount 4/7 stainless steel Power
Vent system, document, XG1302).
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 24. Side wall clearances are 3".
Combustible surrounds may be installed with 3" clearance to the side
of the fireplace as shown in Figure 25.
Fireplace Facing
When selecting the finish material for your fireplace, it is important to
remember the following: THE OPENING 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.
WARNING!
When covering the upper metal portion of the fireplace, up to
6" (as shown, Fig.24 & Fig.25) with a non-combustible material
Please Note: The decorative facing materials may be subject to
temperatures in excess of 250° F. This should be considered
when selecting facing materials.

Have the fireplace and installation inspected yearly. The inspection
must include, but is not limited to, the following:
• A visual check of the entire vent system and termination.
Burner Adjustment
• An inspection of the explosion relief flappers and the door
gasketing to ensure a proper seal.
The L52DF is equipped with an adjustable burner, allowing you to raise
or lower the flames. To adjust the flames, locate the black knob marked
'Hi-Lo', in the centre of the gas control valve (See Figure 32). The front
burners are not adjustable.
• An inspection of the burner, venturi, and primary air openings.
• An inspection of the gas valve, gas components, and pilot flame. For your convenience a 1/8" manifold pressure tap is supplied
on the gas valve for a test gauge connection. See Figure 32.
QQ To
raise the flame height, turn the black knob (located behind the
lower trim) counter-clockwise.
QQ To
lower the flame height, turn clockwise.

• Inspection of all optional equipment; fans, thermostats, etc.
QQ
For Natural Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure
of 5.5" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C.
QQ
For Propane Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure
of 11" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 10" W.C.
QQ
Always keep the fireplace area clear and free of combustible materials,
as well as gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
QQ
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.
Cleaning
Figure 32. 'Hi-Lo' Adjustment on the L52DF's gas valve.
Note: L52DF-I models (electronic ignition) do not feature hi/
lo adjustment.
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 of protective coatings on new metal.
QQ
Glass must be cleaned periodically to remove any film (which is a
normal by-product of combustion) which may be visible. Film can
easily be removed by removing the door, as shown on page 12.
Handle the door carefully, and clean it with non-abrasive glass
cleaners. One of the most effective products is Kel Kem.
QQ
 Fireplace gas control must be in the “OFF” position and pilot
and main burners extinguished when cleaning appliance with
a vacuum.
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 using normal household products.
QQ
Use a vacuum cleaner or whisk broom to keep the control
compartment, burner, and firebox free from dust and lint.  Doors can get very hot. Handle only when cool.
QQ
Linear Burners may be cleaned periodically with a vacuum to remove
soot or other contaminates.
CAUTION!
WARNING!
Do not attempt to clean glass when hot.
Do not clean glass with abrasive materials as any glass etching may cause premature glass failure.
