Installing The Fireplace Shell
Framing
The fireplace may be installed in any location that maintains proper
clearances to air conditioning ducts, electrical wiring and plumbing.
Safety, as well as efficiency of operation, must be considered when
selecting the fireplace location. Try to select a location that does not
interfere with room traffic, has adequate ventilation, and offers an
accessible pathway for Direct Vent installation. Refer to page 4 - Vent
Installation for more information.
* When sheetrock is
not used behind the
fireplace, framing
depth may be
reduced to 16"
The fireplace dimensions are shown below:

These clearances apply to all dimensions except the framed opening,
where the clearance to combustibles is 0". The H34D clearances to
combustible materials are:
Top - Rear Vent*
Top - Top Vent
Figure 3. Minimum Corner framing dimensions, using a 45° elbow.
When installing a shelf over the top of the fireplace, the following
guidelines must be adhered to: For Rear Vent applications the minimum
clearance from the top of the fireplace to a shelf is 11". For Top Vent
applications, the minimum clearance is 17 1/2". (Minimum
2" clearance must still be maintained around the vent pipes.)

* Clearance from the top of the fireplace to a combustible
ceiling within the fireplace enclosure.
** Refer to page 11.
Unprotected combustible walls which are perpendicular to the fireplace
opening, must not project beyond the shaded area shown in Figure 23.
For protection against freezing temperatures, it is recommended that
outer walls of the chase be insulated with a vapour barrier. This will
reduce the possibility of a cold-air convection current on the fireplace.

H34D Gas Fireplace
Installation
Installing The Gas Line
The gas line must be installed before finishing the H34D 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.
• 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.
Vent Installation
This section covers the installation of direct venting and terminations.
Installation Requirements
H34D fireplaces are certified for use with Montigo Standard Series
(4" / 7") venting components.
Minimum 2" clearance to combustibles required for vent pipes
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 with no vertical rise is 6 feet.
Solid vent sections may be cut less than half way from the female end
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
Figure 5. 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).
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.
Installing The Remote Switch
The H34D's gas valve, located behind the lower trim, may be connected
to a wall switch. The valve generates its own power on a millivolt
circuit. Use only low voltage wire, and DO NOT connect any
external power to it.
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.
Figure 6a. Fireplace locations and vent terminations.
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.
MTKOG)
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.
Refer to Figure 30 for wiring requirements.
Note: The switch location must not exceed 30' from the fireplace.

Rear Vent Venting Runs
The H34DL Rear Vent has three possible installations which do not
require vertical lift, all of these installations require that you install the
RHS101 heat sheild.
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.
2. 45° Corner Installation.
Attach an EEL-45 (45° elbow) directly onto the flue collar. Cut the
EXT-18 to suit, and attach it to the EEL-45. Slide the fireplace into
position and attach to the termination. Ensure that the RHS101
heat sheild is installed before attaching the pipe to the
termination.
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.

passes through combustible construction.
1. Straight Installation.
The height from the hearth to the center of the termination is 27
3/8". H34DL Rear Vent versions are supplied with a 18" extension
pipe (EXT18) with female/female connections. For shorter installations, cut the EXT18 to the desired length. Refer to figure 20.
3. Corner Installation — 45° or less.
Use an MTO-3 termination and an MFL-1 or MFL-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°.
Ensure that the RHS101 heat sheild is installed before
attaching the pipe to the termination.
For extended installations, use the EXT18 section as supplied for a

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. 22)
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 84" and the horizontal
run to the wall flange of the vent termination is 36", this would be an
acceptable installation.
Example B: (Acceptable Installation)
If the vertical dimension from the hearth is 94" and the horizontal
run to the wall flange of the vent termination is 126", this would be
an acceptable installation.
NOTES:
All dimension lengths for vertical or horizontal runs are
measured from center of the vent pipe.
Venting runs must fall within the limits set by the venting
graph (see Figure 23).
Example C: (Unacceptable Installation)

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 23. Side wall clearances are 3". Combustible surrounds may be installed with 3" clearance to the side of the
fireplace as shown in Figure 24.
Association, when painting the fireplace surrounds, to select and apply a
quality Alkyd sealer prior to the applying of latex paints. This is to
prevent leaching of water from evaporation and causing a brownish
staining effect to paint over coats.
Fireplace Facing
When selecting the finish material for your fireplace, it is important to
remember the following: THE LOWER GAS CONTROL PANEL 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.

■
If logs are not placed properly, excessive sooting
will result.
The surface of the logs will crack due to the heat
from the flames. This is a normal occurance.

3.
Arrange the ember chips on top of the burner tray. Care should
be taken when placing the ember chips, as blocked burner ports
may cause an incorrect flame pattern, carbon deposits and
delayed ignition. Also, the chips must never be placed in a way
that obstructs any of the air inlet ports, located at the rear of the
burner, as shown in figure 28c.

Burner Adjustment
The H34D 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 29). The front
burners are not adjustable.
■
To raise the flame height, turn the black knob (located behind the
lower trim) counterclockwise.
■
To lower the flame height, turn clockwise.
'Hi-Lo' Adjustment Knob
Maintenance
CAUTIONS
Fireplace gas control must be in the “OFF” position and
pilot and main burners extinguished when cleaning
appliance with a vacuum.
Doors and logs can get very hot. Handle only when cool.
General
Have the fireplace installation inspected yearly, including a visual
check of the vent system, the burner and the pilot flame. For your
convenience a 1/8" manifold pressure tap is supplied on the gas
valve for a test gauge connection. See Figure 29.
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.

Figure 29. 'Hi-Lo' Adjustment on the H34D's gas valve.
Note: H34D-I (electronic ignition) or H34D-MH (mobile home)
models do not feature hi/lo adjustment.
For electronic ignition (HSI) models see figure 25, for
mobile home approved models see Appendix B.
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 of protective coatings on new metal.
Glass must be cleaned periodically to remove any film (which is a
normal biproduct 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.
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.
Use a vacuum cleaner or whisk broom to keep the control
compartment, burner, and firebox free from dust and lint.
Logs may be cleaned periodically with a vacuum to remove soot or
other contaminates.
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.
