CAUTION—HOT! HOT! HOT!
This appliance is a HEATING appliance and it becomes very hot when in operation.
UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, DO NOT PLACE any object, furniture, draperies or other
item LESS THAN 36 inches (0.9 m) IN FRONT OF THE FIREPLACE.
CHILDREN and PETS
Radiant heat can heat surfaces such as the hearth in front of the fireplace to temperatures
that, although approved safe, can be quite uncomfortable to touch or step on—particularly
for children and pets. Children and pets should always be supervised when in the room
where the appliance is located. Remote control handset should be kept out of reach of
children. In the presence of children, we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you install in front
of the fireplace: a fire screen, doors or, to protect young toddlers, a “hearth gate”—see
Options on page 41.
HOT SURFACES
Be aware that, although safe, some combustible materials and finishes, even though
installed at listed clearances may, over time, discolor, warp or show cracks. The 1200DV
requires the installation of the cement board provided with the engine.
Convective heat will exit the unit and travel up the wall surface if not impeded. Protruding
mantels and projections can help direct the heat away from the wall. AVOID PLACING heat
sensitive items such as televisions, paintings, decorations, etc. above fireplaces or near the
edge of protrusions unless appropriate.
The information contained in this installation manual is believed to be correct at the time of printing.

Safety and Warning Information
Operating your fireplace for the first time
When operating your new fireplace for the first time, some vapors may be released due to the burning of curing
compounds used in the manufacture of the appliance. They may cause a slight odor and could cause the flames
to be the full height of the firebox, or even slightly higher, for the first few hours of operation. It is also possible that
these vapors could set off any smoke detection alarms in the immediate vicinity. These vapors are quite normal on
new appliances. We recommend opening a window to vent the room. After a few hours use, the vapors will have
disappeared and the flames will be at their normal height.
State of California. Proposition 65 Warning.

Hearth Requirements
General Hearth Considerations
SAFETY WARNING! The Ventana is a very effective radiant heater. The hearth/floor in front of
the heater can get very hot (in excess of 200ºF). Locating the unit raised above the hearth/floor
or adding one of the optional screen fronts or a generic freestanding screen in front of the unit
can greatly reduce hearth temperatures. Any hearth within 4 inches of the base of the heater
must be constructed of non-combustible materials (see diagrams in the following pages). Note
that some materials, although safe can degrade due to heat—take this into consideration when
choosing materials.
When the appliance
is installed directly on
carpeting, tile or other
combustible material
other than wood flooring,
the appliance shall be
installed on a metal or
wood panel extending the
full width and depth of the
appliance
Top of Finished Hearth
Must Be Flush With
Bottom of Heater to
accommodate some
optional mantels and
trims. See Option section
towards the end of this
manual for optional
accessories.
NOTE:
• Unit will need to be raised
in almost every case to
accommodate hearth or
combustible flooring.
• Non-combustible hearth
required if bottom of
fireplace is less than 4” from
combustible floor in front.
12
Hearth Requirements
Rules
1. Any hearth/floor in front of fireplace within 4 inches of the bottom of the unit must be non-combustible and project
a minimum distance as shown on page 14. The hearth/floor must have a non-combustible finish applied over
the 1/2 inch insulation board provided with the engine. This insulation board acts as a thermal break.
2. Minimum hearth projection is determined by a combination of the height of the hearth above the surface of
combustible floor or carpet and the distance between the hearth and the bottom of the fireplace.
3. Combustible baseboards (1 inch thick or less) located on the wall are acceptable provided they are located below
the base of the raised fireplace.

Important Installer Notice – Weather Sealing &
Vapor Barriers
It is the installer’s responsibility to ensure that vent installations
through exterior walls are caulked and weatherproofed in such
a manner as to:
• Prevent rain water from entering the wall from the weather
side by adequately caulking the outer vent plate to the exterior
wall surface.
• Prevent moisture inside the home from penetrating into the
wall structure by ensuring the inside wall plate is adequately
sealed to the inside vapor barrier.
• Prevent rain water and moisture from entering the walls by
sealing the joints between the outer vent tube and the inner
and outer wall plates.
We recommend the use of a high quality polyurethane sealant.

How to Read the Venting Chart
The chart below applies to roof or wall termination.
1. The total length of the vent pipe cannot exceed 40
feet (12.2 m).
2. The minimum vertical height with roof termination is
6 feet (1.83 m).
3. Any combination of rise and run can be used as
long as they are within the allowable limits shown
on the chart below.
4. A maximum of 4 x 90 degrees elbows—or
equivalent (2 x 45 degr. = 90 degr.)—can be used.
5. Each 90 degrees elbow installed on the horizontal
plane is equivalent to a 3 feet horizontal pipe;
therefore, 3 feet must be subtracted from allowable
horizontal run. (45 degrees elbow is equivalent to
18 inches horizontal pipe.)
6. All horizontal pipe runs must be graded 1/4 inch per
foot upwards in the direction of the exhaust flow.
The final pipe length, when terminating through the
wall may be graded downwards slightly to prevent
water migration.
7. Co-linear venting is not allowed.
8. A restrictor is required for many installations—see
next section.

Restrictor
MANY INSTALLATIONS REQUIRE A RESTRICTOR
for improved flame picture and performance, This unit
is supplied with one restrictor having four different
positions or settings. The level of restriction required
depends on the vertical rise in the venting system and,
to a lesser degree, the horizontal run and number of
elbows.
The amount of restriction is based on laboratory tests.
The ideal restrictor position may vary slightly, especially
when the vent pipe length is near the limits of the
acceptable configurations for each type of restrictor.
The chart on the previous page shows the vent
restrictor required relative to the length of the vent pipe.
To install the restrictor:
1. On an engine previously installed, open the panels
on each side of the window. Remove the window
skirt, the window, the logs, the right and rear top
brick panels.
2. According to the installation, look up the venting
chart on the previous page to know what position
the restrictor should be fitted in.
3. Remove the screws (2) on each side of the venting
port.
4. Place the restrictor in the required position over the
two holes.
5. Fit the screws and tighten.
6. Continue the installation or, for an engine previously
installed, replace the right and rear top brick panels,
the logs, the window and the window skirt. Close the
side panels.

Operation Check & Aeration Settings Adjustment
Operation Check
Turn the fireplace flame up and down using the
remote control to confirm that the full range of inputs
is achieved—see the remote control operation
instructions on pages 36–38.
In a few unusual installations, the flame picture may
be improved by adjusting the aeration. The need for
adjustment should be determined only by operating the
appliance with the ceramic logs and window installed.
Aeration Settings (NG units only)
Increasing aeration will cause the flames to appear
more transparent and blue showing more ceramic log
glow.
(LPG units do not have any primary air adjustment.)
Light the fire and allow the unit to warm up for 10–15
minutes to evaluate the flame picture. Natural gas
burners are equipped with an adjustable shutter to
control primary aeration. See the figures below. The
shutter is factory-set to an aeration gap which will
give optimum performance for the vast majority of
installations.
Decreasing aeration will cause the flames to appear
more yellow or orange showing less ceramic log glow.
Too little aeration may result in black carbon
forming and dropping into the firebox.

location and use the hardware provided with the kit.
See the diagram below for required hardware and
configurations. Note that the holder can be installed at
the base of a light switch plate.
Packing Contents:
IMPORTANT. The location of the remote control
handset is important to assure proper temperature
regulation. To obtain a constant temperature, we
recommend that the handset should be between 3
and 15 feet away from the appliance but not directly
above it. We also advise that the handset should
be located away from any other heat source and not
in direct sunlight as this may affect the temperature
sensor located in the remote handset.

Owner’s Information
WARNING: Your fireplace becomes very hot
when operating. Avoid placing decorating objects
sensitive to heat within 36 inches (0.9 m) around it.
Performance of LPG appliances may be affected by
the quality of commercial gas supplied in your area.
Operating Your Fireplace
For your safety, this appliance is fitted with a flame
supervision device which will shut-off the gas supply
if, for any reason, the pilot flame goes out. This device
incorporates a fixed probe, which senses the heat
from the pilot flame. If the probe is cool, the device will
prevent any gas flow unless manually lighting the pilot.
See full lighting instructions on page 39 of this manual.

•TURTLE WAX
Do not clean the glass while it is hot. Always securely
replace the window before lighting. If broken, the
glass pane may only be replaced as a complete
window unit as supplied by the manufacturer.
To remove the window for cleaning, locate the levers
on each side of the window towards the top of the
unit. Using your finger, pull the lever towards you and
unhook it from the window frame bracket. Gently pull
the top of the window outward. Lift the window out of
its bottom railing and set aside in a safe place to avoid

Cleaning
Important - Glass cleaning - Mineral deposits
One of the by-products of the combustion process in a
gas appliance is a mineral which can show up as a white
film on the ceramic glass of the viewing door.
The composition of the deposit varies widely from various
locations and also from time to time in the same location.
It seems this is associated with the varying sulfur content
of the gas. You may have the problem for a time and then
not see it for many months when it will reappear in your
area.
We have discussed this problem with ceramic glass
manufacturers and they cannot give us a definitive
answer to this problem. Dealers have tried various
cleaning products with varying results. The following
recommendations will not guarantee results in your
particular case.
NOTE: This is a problem beyond Miles Industries’
control and is not covered under warranty.
1. Clean the glass regularly as soon as you notice the
buildup (white film). If the film is left for a longer period
of time, it will bake on. It is then much harder, if not
impossible, to remove.
2. NEVER use an abrasive cleaner on the ceramic glass.
Any abrasion of the surface has the immediate effect
of compromising the strength of the glass. An emulsion
type cleaner is recommended.
3. Use a soft damp cloth to apply the cleaner. Dry the
glass with a soft, dry, preferably cotton cloth. Most
paper towels and synthetic materials are abrasive to
ceramic glass and should be avoided.
4. Our dealers have had good results from the products
listed below. We cannot, however, guarantee the
results of these products.
Spring Loaded
Window Levers
To refit the window, place it in its bottom railing, push
its top against the firebox and, while holding it in place,
pull the side levers back into the window brackets.
Then, pull out the top of the window and release it to
insure the springs return it. Finally, apply light hand
pressure against the window frame sides to bed-in the
window seal—see page 29.
Soot or dust can be brushed from the ceramic logs
and firebox walls using a soft brush. Dust can also
be removed from the burner using a soft brush after
removing the ceramic logs. When cleaning, make
sure that no particles are brushed into the slots of the
burner.

cannot do it with the remote control handset (misplaced,
lost, dead batteries, etc.) or if you need to replace the
receiver’s batteries, you can turn off the appliance with
the manual switch located on the right hand side of the
valve.
If the wall switch is installed and the remote control will
not be used, remove the battery from the handset and
store it away.
If you are planning not to use your fireplace for a
prolonged period of time, remove the battery from the
remote handset and turn off the gas valve using the
