Clearances
These clearances apply to all dimensions except the framed opening,
where the clearance to combustibles is 0". The H52DFN clearance to
unprotected combustible walls which are perpendicular to the fireplace
opening, must not project beyond the shaded area shown in Fig. 8.
For protection against freezing temperatures, it is recommended that
outer walls of the chase be insulated with a vapor barrier. This will reduce
the possibility of a cold-air convection current on the fireplace.
Clearance to Combustibles
The gas line must be installed before finishing the H52-DFN Fireplace.
Natural Gas requires a minimum inlet gas supply pressure of 5.5" W.C.
& a manifold pressure of 3.5" 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 3.
• 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.

Installation
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 Standoffs
To avoid elevated mantel temperatures, the H52-DFN gas
fireplace is required to have the supplied standoffs installed.
The fireplace is supplied with two standoffs. Bend and install these
standoffs on top of the fireplace ensuring that the height of the standoff
maintains a 2.5" clearance.

Installation
Installing The Power Vent
Installing Heat Guards over Terminations
The LDVPV58 Linear Power Vent System must ONLY be used with
a Montigo H52-DFN Direct Vent Fireplace. When selecting Venting
components for use with this Linear Power Vent System, take into consideration the various requirements and limitations in the vent installation
section of the Model's manual:
Models Must Be Equipped with Electronic Ignition (HSI/AF)
PTKOG (5"/8")
1. Ensure that the two long mounting brackets are facing the bottom
of the termination. (See inset). This will provide more heat protection
at the top of the termination, where temperatures are highest.
2. Attach to the faceplate of the termination using four sheet metal
screws.
Recessed Termination Installation (DVPV58)
The DVPV58 termination is designed
to be Installed flush with the exterior of
the building. This recessed design uses
5"/8" vent and allows the installation to
be clean and flush so it does not interfere
or have an impact with your architectural
design.
Note: The Louvred grille is not supplied by
Montigo and must be sized accordingly.
We require a MIN 80in/sq free air
movement to adequately allow air to
enter, and exhaust the fireplace. Also note
the material of the louvre must be able to
withstand high operating temperatures.
Figure 5. Linear Power Vent recessed Termination.
IMPORTANT
The H52-DFN requires a specific volume of atmospheric
interchange to operate properly and efficiently.
■■ The fireplace requires a MIN 80in/sq. air movement
to function.
■■ Due to high operating temperatures the louvered
grill must be manufactured from a material that will
be capable of withstanding high temperatures.
■■ The grille must also be able to shed water, not
allowing any moisture to enter the unit.
Only models equipped with an electronic ignition system may be installed
with the LDVPV58 Linear Power Vent System. The absence of a pilot in
this system, allows for greater flexibility on venting requirements.

Maintenance
General
Troubleshooting
■ Have the fireplace and installation inspected yearly. The inspection
must include, but is not limited to, the following:
HONEYWELL SV9500 /9600
Troublshooting Sequence
• A visual check of the entire vent system and termination.
• An inspection of the explosion relief flappers and the door
gasketing to ensure a proper seal.
NOTE: Before Troubleshooting, Familiarize Yourself With
• An inspection of the burner, venturi, and primary air openings.
START
• 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.
• Ensure proper log placement as per this manual.
• Inspection of all optional equipment; fans, thermostats, etc.
■ For Natural Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure
of 5.5" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C.
The Startup And Checkout Procedure.
SV9500 / SV9600
is powered
(24VAC nominal)
■ Always keep the fireplace area clear and free of combustible materials,
as well as gasoline and other flammable vapors 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.
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 by-product of combustion) which may be visible. Film
can easily be removed by removing the door, as shown on page
15. 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.
