LOCATING GAS FIREPLACE
.
See ALLOWABLE TERMINATION LOCATIONS.
The fireplace may be installed in any location that maintains proper clearances to combustibles,
air conditioning ducts, electrical wiring and plumbing. Select a location that is accessible for
venting See section Allowable Termination Locations listed in this manual. When the appliance
is installed directly on carpeting, vinyl tile or other combustible materials, other than wood
flooring, the appliance must be installed on metal or wood panel extending the full width and
depth of the appliance.
GAS CONNECTIONS
Have your gas supplier or a qualified gas fitter run a gas supply line into the fireplace. The line
must be properly sized and fitted according to the installation codes. Immediately upstream of the
supply connection, the fitter shall provide an accessible manual shut-off valve and a 1/8 NPT
plugged tapping accessible for connection to a test gauge.
CAUTION: 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). Failure to do so will damage the appliance’s gas
valve. Such damage is not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

15,000 BTU/hr (4,400 watts) less 4% per 1000 ft. (300m)
Please contact your local distributor for the appropriate orifice size.
NOTE: THE INPUT RATING SHOULD ALWAYS BE CHECKED AFTER FIRST INSTALLING
THIS APPLIANCE. To do this, reduce the background flow rate to a minimum (this flow should
remain constant for the next part of the test), time the meter, light the fireplace and operate it
on high and take another reading after 15 mins. Check with your gas supplier for the gas BTU
content at your elevation. Input is the rate of flow—background flow multiplied by the heating
value of the gas (cubic feet/hour x BTU per cubic feet). Adjust the manifold pressure so that
the unit does not operate above the rated input. To do this, remove the screw dust cap on the
valve and adjust the screw inside the tube so that the maximum input is correct. Reinstall the
screw dust cap when complete.
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
The DV-520 has available an optional convection fan kit that can be installed into the fireplace
(follow the installation instructions provided with the kit)
If the optional fan kit will not be provided at the same time the unit is installed, have a qualified
electrician run a 120VAC supply line to the lower left side of the fireplace before installing the
appliance into the framing. There should be 18” (460mm) of the supply line free for ease of
connection to the convection fan kits junction box.

VERTICAL FLEXIBLE VENTING
1) With the fireplace in position, plumb the location in the ceiling and the roof for the vent.
2) Cut a 9 3/8” square hole in the ceiling. Frame around the opening. The 9 3/8” size opening ensures
the required 1” clearance is maintained to the outer flexible vent pipe.
Note: If the area above the ceiling is not an attic, a fire-stop should be installed top and bottom of the
opening (with the spacer tabs pointing into the opening) this also ensures the required 1” clearance is
maintained to the outer flexible vent pipe.
3) Nail each fire stop in place securely into the framing.
Note: additional fire stops are available for installations requiring them.
4) The vertical vent must extend a minimum of 2 feet above the highest point were it passes through
the roof or above any portion of a building within 10 feet of it.
Note: The 7” diameter outer flex pipe is not permitted to extend through the roof. The 7” diameter rigid
outer pipe must be used and must pass though the roof to allow the installation of the roof support.
Note: The 4” diameter inner flex pipe must remain in one continuous piece from the unit to the termination cap. It cannot be joined.
5) Install the roof support with at least 4 fasteners and fasten the 7” diameter rigid pipe to it using the
screws provided. Ensure the 1” required clearance to the outer pipe is maintained as it passes through
the roof.
Note: Additional lengths of 7” diameter rigid pipe are available for installations requiring them.
6) Determine the length of flexible venting required 4” diameter inner and 7” diameter outer pipe and
stretch these out to fit. Now install the spring spacers (every 3 feet) onto the inner pipe. Finally fit the 7”
diameter flexible outer pipe over the inner pipe.
7) Put the vent assembly in place.
8) Connect the 4” diameter inner flex to the collar on the termination cap seal with a bead of “Mil
Pac” (1/4” wide) and securing with a minimum of 3 screws evenly around the pipe. Repeat the procedure for the 7” diameter outer flex to the collar on the termination cap. Then finally at the fireplace collars.
Note: Ensure all joints are air-tight and rigidly connected.

exterior fireplace surfaces, as high temperatures can bake these prints on permanently.
NOTE : When operated for the first few times, the appliance will emit some odor and fumes.
This is due to the heat from the appliance evaporating the oils and solvents used in
fabricating the appliance. Close off the room to the rest of the house and open all
windows. Keep the room well ventilated as smoke alarm may sound. Run the
appliance continuously for at least 4 hours to allow paint to cure.
WARNING : If you do not follow these instructions exactly, a fire or explosion
may result, causing property damage, personal injury or loss of
life. Do not operate the appliance with the glass front removed,
cracked or broken. Replacement of the glass should be done by a
licensed or qualified service person.

MAINTENANCE
CAUTION : Do not conduct maintenance on the appliance while it is operating or while it is still hot.
The appliance area should be kept clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
CLEANING THE APPLIANCE
The exterior painted surfaces, glass and trims may be cleaned with a soft, non-abrasive cloth
and water or a suitable, mild, non-abrasive cleaner.
Regularly:
•
•
•
Clean and remove any lint accumulations or debris from the grills and in any
combustion and convection air passage ways.
Keep the appliance area free from combustible materials, such as paper, wood,
clothing, gasoline and flammable solids, liquids and vapors.
Visually check the height and color of the burner and pilot flames.
Every 2 to 3 months:
•
•
•
Remove the glass door and clean the inside of the glass with a soft, non-abrasive
cloth and water or a suitable, mild, non-abrasive cleaner. DO NOT CLEAN WHILE
HOT.
Carefully remove the logs and gently brush off any loose carbon deposits. This job is
best done outside the house, wearing a dust mask.The logs are very fragile, take
care not to break them. Do not wash logs with any liquid. While logs are removed,
also remove the coals and “embers” and check that all burner openings are not
obstructed. It is recommended you use a vacuum cleaner to clean off any dust or lint.
After cleaning, the logs, coals and embers must be replaced as per the instructions in
this manual.
Once a year, have a qualified service technician:
•
•
•
Completely inspect the appliance and the venting system.
Clean and remove any lint accumulations or debris in the firebox, on the burners,
on the pilot, at the primary air opening on the burner and in any combustion and
convection air passage ways.
Check the safety system of the gas valve and the appliance.
WARNING : All parts removed or disturbed, including guards and grills, must
be properly replaced after maintenance. Service and repair must
be conducted by a qualified service person. If these instructions

all the air to purge out of the line before gas can reach the pilot
and ignite.
2. Check to make sure the gas supply to the appliance is turned
on and there is adequate gas supply pressure to the appliance.
3. Check for sparks between the spark electrode and the pilot
head when the sparker is pressed. If there is no spark,
a. Check for broken or poor connection from the sparker to the
electrode.
b. Check for the spark shorting or arcing at other locations.
c. Check for defective sparker.
d. Check for defective spark electrode.
e. Check for corrosion on the electrode tip (clean if required).
4. With the door removed, try lighting the pilot with a match.
a. If air is blowing on the flame of the match, hold the control
knob in at the ‘PILOT’ setting until all the air is purged out of
the line.
b. If there is no gas or air coming out of the pilot and there is
gas pressure to the appliance, the pilot orifice may be
blocked or the gas valve may be defective.
Pilot will not remain on
after being lit.
1. Press the control knob all the way in.
2. Hold the control knob in for a longer period of time.
3. If you are trying to re-light the pilot immediately after you have
shut-off the pilot, you have to wait 2 minutes for the valve to
reset. (built in additional safety feature)
4. Check to see if the pilot flame is large enough to reach and
surround the thermocouple. If the flame is too small, check for
correct gas supply pressure. If pressure is within spec, adjust
the pilot flame size with the screw on the valve. If the flame
cannot be adjusted, there might be some debris obstructing the
pilot orifice, or a wrong size pilot orifice.
5. Check for poor connection of the thermocouple to the valve.
6. Check for proper millivolts of the thermocouple. The
thermocouple should generate at least 30 mV or it is defective.
7. Check for defective gas valve.
The main burner does not
turn on with the pilot lit.
1. Check to make sure the control knob is turned to the ‘ON’
position.
2. Allow enough time for the pilot to heat up the thermopile to generate sufficient voltage to activate the valve.
