SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP GAS
Propane (LP-Gas) is a flammable gas which can cause fires
and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and
colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions which can protect both you and your family from an
accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point
by point with the members of your household. Someday
when there may not be a minute to lose, everyone’s safety
will depend on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following information, you feel you still need more
information, please contact your gas supplier.
LP-GAS WARNING ODOR
If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.
That’s your signal to go into immediate action!
• Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your phone.
Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.
• Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do
that IMMEDIATELY.
• Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.
• LP-Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas such as
basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak, keep
out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until firefighters
declare them to be safe.
• Use your neighbor’s phone and call a trained LP-Gas service
person and the fire department. Even though you may not
continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do not
re-enter the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
• Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for escaped
gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly
trained LP-Gas service people should repair the leak, then
check and relight the gas appliance for you.
no odor detected - odor fade
Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the
odor of the chemical put into the gas. You must find out if you
can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease your
ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect your
sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors
in the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the gas odor
or their minds are on something else. Thinking about smelling a
gas odor can make it easier to smell.
The odorant in LP-Gas is colorless, and it can fade under some
circumstances. For example, if there is an underground leak, the
movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants
in LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading can occur if
there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into walls,
masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will take
some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.
LP-Gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could
vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be
more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest gas
odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately
go into action as instructed earlier.
some points to remember
• Learn to recognize the odor of LP-Gas. Your local LP-Gas
Dealer can give you a “Scratch and Sniff” pamphlet. Use it to
find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that
your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LP-Gas
Dealer.
• If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service,
or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gas system. If
you are qualified, consciously think about the odor of LP-Gas
prior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service
or making adjustments.
• Sometimes a basement or a closed-up house has a musty smell
that can cover up the LP-Gas odor. Do not try to light pilot
lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area where
the conditions are such that you may not detect the odor if
there has been a leak of LP-Gas.
• Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of
new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should
be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders
are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks, or
reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed to set too
long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which have been
Page 4
out of service for a time may develop internal rust which will
cause odor fade. If such conditions are suspected to exist, a
periodic sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you have any
question about the gas odor, call your LP-Gas dealer. A
periodic sniff test of the LP-Gas is a good safety measure
under any condition.
• If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gas odorant and you
think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the same
immediate action recommended above for the occasion when
you do detect the odorized LP-Gas.
• If you experience a complete “gas out,” (the container is under
no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately. If the
container valve is left on, the container may draw in some air
through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this occurs,
some new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is left
open, then treat the container as a new tank. Always be sure
your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off at the
container before it goes completely empty or having it refilled
before it is completely empty.

Note: Since some municipalities have additional local codes, it is
always best to consult your local authority and installation code.
The use of the following gas connectors is recommended:
— ANS Z21.24 Appliance Connectors of Corrugated Metal Tubing
and Fittings.
— ANS Z21.45 Assembled Flexible Appliance Connectors of
Other Than All-Metal Construction
The above connectors may be used if acceptable by the authority
having jurisdiction. The state of Massachusetts requires that a flexible
appliance connector cannot exceed three feet in length.
Installing the Main Gas Cock
Each appliance should have its own manual gas cock.
A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of the
unit. Where none exists, or where its size or location is not adequate, contact your local authorized installer for installation or
relocation.
Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant
to the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be
checked for leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap
solution watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if
unexposed, a pressure test should be made.
Never use an exposed flame to check for leaks. Appliance must
be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe
capped or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with
appliance connected; control valve will sustain damage!
NOTE: The millivolt gas controls are equipped with a captured
screw type pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to provide
a 1/8" test point up stream of the control.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings.
The appliance and it’s individual shut off valve must be disconnected
from supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system
at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
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 (3.5kPa).
Attention! If one of the procedures results in pressures in excess
of 1/2 psig (14" w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the fireplace gas valve, it will
result in a hazardous condition.
Checking Manifold Pressures
Both Propane and Natural gas valves have a built-in pressure
regulator in the gas valve. Natural gas models will have a manifold
pressure of approximately 3.5" w.c. (.871kPa) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 4.5" w.c.
(1.120kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
14.0" w.c. (3.484kPa). Propane gas models will have a manifold
pressure approximately 10.0" w.c. (2.49kPa) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 10.8" w.c.
(2.68kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
14.0" w.c. (3.484kPa).

VENTING AND INSTALLATION
1. Before beginning, remove glass door and log package from
unit. Also check to make sure there is no hidden damage to
the unit. Take a minute and plan out the gas, venting and electrical route. It is best to start with the gas line first, followed
by the chimney liner and electrical supply requirements.
2. Minimum fireplace opening requirements are shown in
Figure 2 of this installation manual. The firebrick (refractory), glass doors, screen rails, screen mesh and log grates
can be removed from a factory built fireplace in order to gain
minimum gas insert opening requirements prior to installing
the gas fireplace insert.
3. This insert requires no hearth extensions. Combustible material on the floor may be installed up to the insert. Do not
obstruct the lower louver of the insert. The original fireplace
cannot be returned to solid fuel in this condition.
4. The metal floor of the solid fuel firebox may be removed to
facilitate the installation of the insert. CLEARANCE TO
COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL UNDER THE INSERT IS
1/4”. YOU MUST USE THE LEVELING LEGS TO RAISE
THE INSERT A MINIMUM OF 1/4” IF THE INSERT IS
TO SIT ON COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL. The side walls
and top structure of the firebox may not be altered with the
exception of removable baffles and dampers. Smoke shields,
shelves and baffles may be removed if attached with mechanical fasteners. The original fireplace cannot be returned
to solid fuel in this condition.
5. Combustible facing material may be installed over the
original combustible facing material on the solid fuel fireplace. The original specified clearances of a factory-built
fireplace must be maintained, with the exception of the
hearth. Clearances on a masonry fireplace must be maintained at 12” from the opening for combustible projections
over 1 1/2”. Clearances for combustible projections under
1 1/2” must be maintained at 6” from the opening per
NFPA211. Plan the surround size accordingly. A surround
must be used with the insert. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE
CAN COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL BE PLACED BEHIND
THE SURROUND!
6. The insert surround is tested and approved with this gas insert
and may cover existing air circulation vents or grills on the
solid fuel fireplace it is installed into. If the surround does
not cover the entire ventilation grill surface, the exposed grill
area should be left open.
NOTE: Surround panel kits have been tested and approved to
cover existing air circulation vents or grills.
NOTE: Cutting of sheet metal parts of a fireplace in order to
install the fireplace insert is prohibited.
WARNING: Only the surround as supplied may be used
to cover integral grills on the solid fuel-burning fireplace.
No other components such as shrouds, sheet metal plates,
etc. may be used to seal off vents.
Page 10
7. To assure top performance, safety and efficiency, inserts must
be installed with an approved flue liner as per CAN/CGA
B-149 or National Fuel Code ANSI Z223 and these instructions.
Note: The following statement is also provided on a separate
label plate in the instruction packet. Prior to installation of
the fireplace insert, the installer must mechanically secure this
warning plate to the inside of the fireplace for future reference
as required.
WARNING: The solid fuel fireplace has been converted
for use with gas only and cannot be used for burning wood
or solid fuels unless all original parts have been replaced
and the fireplace has been reapproved by the authority
having jurisdiction.
8. The solid fuel fireplaces’ flue damper must be fully locked
in the open position or removed for installation of the gas
fireplace insert.
9. The fireplace and fireplace chimney must be cleaned and in
good working order and constructed of noncombustible materials.
10. Make sure that all chimney cleanouts fit properly so air cannot leak into the chimney.
11. Install the insert without the surround panels attached and
make all gas, venting, and electrical connections.
If the factory built fireplace does not have gas access holes
provided, an access hole of 1 1/2” diameter (37.5mm) or

VENTING AND INSTALLATION
Vent System Approvals
Figure 8 shows the vent termination caps and systems approved
for use with these models. Approved vent system terminations
are labeled for identification. 3-inch diameter listed flexible
aluminum or stainless steel gas vent is used for both the incoming
combustion air and exhaust vent pipes. NO OTHER VENTING
SYSTEMS OR COMPONENTS MAY BE USED. Detailed
installation instructions are included with each vent termination
kit and should be used in conjunction with this manual.
Horizontal Venting
The vent system on this model CANNOT be terminated
horizontally.
Vertical Venting
The inlet and exhaust vent pipes MUST be connected to the
proper collars on the unit AND to the termination cap or the unit
will not operate. The intake vent collar is identified by a stamped
“I” on the top collar sliding vent plate assembly.
WARNING: MAJOR U.S. BUILDING CODES SPECIFY
MINIMUM CHIMNEY AND/OR VENT HEIGHT
ABOVE THE ROOF TOP. THESE MINIMUM HEIGHTS
ARE NECESSARY IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY.
SEE FIGURES 8 THROUGH 10 FOR MINIMUM
HEIGHTS, PROVIDED THE TERMINATION CAP IS
AT LEAST 2-FEET FROM A VERTICAL WALL AND
2-FEET BELOW A HORIZONTAL OVERHANG.
Note: This also pertains to vertical vent systems installed on the
outside of the building.
WARNING: THE EXHAUST PIPE MUST ONLY
BE CONNECTED TO THE EXHAUST STARTING
COLLAR OF THE UNIT AND TO THE EXHAUST
COLLAR OF THE TERMINATION CAP.
THE INLET AIR PIPE MUST ONLY BE CONNECTED
TO THE INLET AIR STARTING COLLAR OF THE
UNIT AND TO THE INLET AIR COLLAR OF THE
TERMINATION CAP. BOTH THE INLET VENT AND
THE FLUE VENT MUST BE CONNECTED FROM
THE INSERT TO THE VENT TERMINATION CAP.
Connecting the Vent Pipe
Caution: Sharp edges. Always use gloves when installing.
Install the 3-inch flexible vent pipes down through the chimney.
Attach the pipe-to-cap adaptor to the termination cap and the
top of the flexible vent pipe, then install the cap to the top of the
chimney.
Remove the vent slide plate assembly from the top of the insert.
See Figure 7. Trim off excess venting then attach and secure
the bottom ends of the flex pipes to the starting collars with the
adjustable band clamps provided. Slide the gas insert into place,
and position any excess flex vent pipe back up into the chimney.
Begin installation of the insert into the fireplace opening. Align
the vent slide plate assembly with the guides located on top of
the insert. Work the insert inch by inch into the fireplace cavity
as you pull forward on the vent slide plate assembly. Do not use
excessive force on the vent slide plate. Once the vent slide plate
is close to seating, install the vent bolt through the center hole
of the insert top flange, and into the vent slide plate nut. Using
a wrench or socket, tighten the bolt until the vent slide plate is
seated forward completely.
Positioning, Leveling, and Securing Insert
1. Place the insert into position.
Note: The front flanges of the insert (without surround panels)
should be set at approximately 1”(inch) in front of the face of the
fireplace.
2. Level the insert from side to side and front to back.
3. If necessary, use the leveling bolts included in the instruction
pack. Screw the legs into the nuts installed in the bottom of
the insert. Turn legs in until insert is level.
CAUTION: TO AVOID DOWNDRAFTS AND/OR COLD AIR
PROBLEMS, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO SEAL OFF THE
AREA BETWEEN THE TERMINATION CAP AND THE TOP
OF THE SOLID-FUEL CHIMNEY OPENING INTO WHICH
THE VENT CAP HAS BEEN INSTALLED.
NOTE: The minimum vertical vent rise is 10 feet and the
maximum vertical vent rise is 35 feet. These dimensions are
measured from the starting collars of the unit to the end of the last
section of vent pipe. See Figure 8.
NOTE: The damper of the masonry chimney may need to be
removed to allow installation of the flexible-vent pipe.
When installing into a zero clearance, factory built wood-burning
fireplaces, the use of the DVKI Round Vertical Termination Kit
should allow you to mount the vent adaptor and cap to the exposed

VERTICAL TERMINATION
Determining Minimum Vent Height Above the Roof.
WARNING: Major U.S. building codes specify minimum
chimney and/or vent height above the roof top. These minimum
heights are necessary in the interest of safety. These specifications are summarized in Figure 9.
Vertical Through the Roof Applications
The Gas Fireplace Insert has been approved for:
a) Vertical installations up to 35 feet in height (top of insert to
cap).
b) Two sets of 45 degree elbow offsets (bends in flexvent) within
the vertical installation. From 0 to a maximum of 8 ft. of vent
pipe can be used between elbows.
c) Wall straps must be used to support offset pipe every 4'.
This application will require that you first determine the roof pitch
and use the appropriate venting components.

General Maintenance
Conduct an inspection of the venting system semi-annually.
Recommended areas to inspect are as follows:
1. Check areas of the venting system which are exposed to the
elements for corrosion. These will appear as rust spots or
streaks and, in extreme cases, holes. These components should
immediately be replaced.
2. Remove the cap and shine a flashlight down the vent. Remove
any bird nests or other foreign material.
3. Check for evidence of excessive condensate, such as water
droplets forming in the flex venting and subsequently dripping
out at joints or seams. Condensate can cause corrosion of caps,
pipe and fittings. It may be caused by having excessive lateral
runs, or having exterior portions of the system exposed to cold
weather.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe sections or fittings have been
disturbed and, consequently, loosened. Also, check mechanical
supports, such as wall straps or plumbers’ tape for rigidity.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
750 Millivolt System
The standing pilot (750 millivolt system) is a continuous burning
pilot. The pilot remains ON even when the main burner is OFF.
When you ignite the pilot, the thermopile produces millivolts
(electrical current) which energizes the magnet in the gas valve.
After 30 seconds to 1 minute time period you can release the gas
control knob and the pilot will stay ON. Allow your pilot flame to
operate an additional one (1) to two (2) minutes before you turn the
gas control knob from the PILOT position to the ON position. This
time period allows the millivolts (electrical current) to build-up to
a sufficient level allowing the gas control to operate properly.
1. Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for
standing pilot controls found in this manual and on labels found
in control compartment behind the door assembly.
Initial Lighting
Upon completing the gas line or turning the gas valve on after it
has been in the “OFF” position, a small amount of air will be in the
lines. When first lighting the fireplace, it will take a few minutes
for the lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is
complete, the fireplace will light and operate satisfactorily.
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such purging
if the gas valve is not turned to “OFF.”
Pilot Flame (Figure 21)
The thermopile/thermocouple (standing pilot) tips should be
covered with flame.
CAUTION: During the initial purging and subsequent lightings,
never allow the gas valve control knob to remain depressed in
the “pilot” position without pushing the piezo ignitor button
at least once every second.
2. During the operating season, leave the control valve knob in the
“ON” position. This will allow the pilot flame to remain lit. Turn
the burner flame on or off with the fireplace Remote/OFF/ON
switch, wall switch or remote controls.
NOTE: The gas control valve allows you to increase or decrease the
height of the main burner flame. The control valve has a pressure
regulator with a knob as shown in Figure 20. Rotate the knob
clockwise to “HI” to increase the flame height and counterclockwise
to “LO” to decrease the flame height.
3. When the operating season is over, turn the Remote/OFF/ON
switch to “OFF” and the control valve to “OFF”. The system,
including the pilot light, will be shut down.

STANDING PILOT TROUBLESHOOTING
With proper installation and maintenance, your new Direct Vent Gas Fireplace will provide years of trouble-free service. If you do
experience a problem, refer to the Trouble Shooting Guide below. This guide will assist a qualified service person in the diagnosis
of problems and the corrective action to be taken.
1. Spark ignitor will not light pilot after repeated triggering
of piezo ignitor button.
a. Defective ignitor (no spark electrode)
—Check for spark at electrode and pilot; if no spark and
electrode wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
b. No gas or low gas pressure.
—Check remote shut off valves from fireplace. Usually
there is a valve near the main. There can be more than one
(1) valve between the fireplace and main.
—Low pressure can be caused by a variety of situations
such as a bent line, too narrow diameter of pipe, or low line
pressure. Consult with plumber or gas supplier.
c. No LP in tank.
—Check LP (propane) tank. Refill tank.
2.Pilot will not stay lit after carefully following lighting
instructions.
a. Defective thermocouple.
—Check that pilot flame impinges on thermocouple. Clean
and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement.
—Ensure the thermocouple connection at the gas valve is
fully inserted and tight (hand tight plus 1/4 turn). Faulty
thermocouple if reading is below specified minimum of 15
millivolts.
—Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one
millivolt meter lead wire on the end of the thermocouple
and the other millivolt meter lead wire on the thermocouple
copper wire. Start the pilot and hold the valve knob in. If
the millivolt reading is less than 15 millivolt, replace the
thermocouple.
b. Defective valve.
—If thermocouple is producing more than 15 millivolts,
replace faulty valve.
3.Pilot burning, no gas to burner, valve knob “ON”, REMOTE/
OFF/ON switch “ON.”
a. REMOTE/OFF/ON switch, wall switch, remote control or
wires defective.
—Check REMOTE/OFF/ON switch and wires for proper
connections. Place jumper wires across terminal at switch.
If burner comes on, replace defective switch. If OK, place
jumper wires across switch wires at gas valve-if burner
comes on, wires are faulty or connections are bad.
b. Thermopile may not be generating sufficient millivolts.
—If the pilot flame is not close enough physically to the
thermopile, adjust the pilot flame.
—Be sure the wire connections from the thermopile at the
gas valve terminals are tight and the thermopile is fully
inserted into the pilot bracket.
—Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take the
reading at TH-TP & TP terminals of the gas valve. The meter
should read 350 millivolts minimum, while holding the valve
knob depressed in the pilot position, with the pilot lit, and

the faulty thermopile if the reading is below the specified
minimum.
—With the pilot in the ON position, disconnect the thermopile
leads from the valve. Take a reading at the thermopile leads.
The reading should be 350 millivolts minimum. Replace the
thermopile if the reading is below the minimum.
c. Defective valve.
—Turn valve knob to ON. Place REMOTE/OFF/ON switch
to ON. Check with millivolt meter at thermopile terminals.
Millivolt meter should read greater than 200 millivolts. If the
reading is okay and the main burner does not ignite, replace
the gas valve.
d. Plugged main burner orifice.
—Check main burner orifice for blockage and remove.
Frequent pilot outage problem.
a. Pilot flame may be too high or too low, or blowing (high),
causing pilot safety to drop out.
—Clean and adjust flame for maximum flame impingement on
the thermocouple. Follow lighting instructions carefully.
The pilot and main burner extinguish while in operation.
a. No LP (Propane) in tank.
Check LP (Propane) tank. Refill fuel tank.
b. Inner vent pipe leaking exhaust gases back into system.
—Check for leaks.
c. Glass too loose, gasket leaks in corners after usage.
—Be certain glass assembly is installed correctly.
d. Horizontal vent improperly pitched.
—The horizontal vent cap should slope down only enough
to prevent any water from entering the unit. The maximum
downwards slope is 1/4 inch.
e. Bad thermopile or thermocouple.
—Replace if necessary.
f. Improper vent cap installation.
—Check for proper installation and freedom from debris or
blockage.
Glass soots, and/or soot deposits collected on logs.
a. Flame impingement on logs incorrect.
—Check and adjust log position. See Page 17. Contact
Empire Comfort Systems, Inc.
b. Debris around throat of main burner.
—Inspect the opening at the base of the main burner. It is
imperative that NO material be placed in this opening.
Flame burns blue and lifts off main burner.
a. Insufficient oxygen being supplied.
—Check to make sure vent cap is installed properly and free

INSERT MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE
Although the frequency of servicing and maintenance will depend
on use and the type of installation, you should have a qualified
service technician perform an appliance checkup at the beginning
of each heating season. Specific guidelines regarding each
appliance maintenance task are listed below.
IMPORTANT: TURN OFF THE GAS BEFORE SERVICING
YOUR APPLIANCE.
Cleaning Burner and Controls
Frequency: Once annually.
By: Qualified service technician.
Task: Brush or vacuum the control compartment, fireplace logs
and burner areas surrounding the logs.
Checking Flame Patterns, Flame Height
Frequency: Periodically.
By: Qualified service technician/Home owner.
Task: Make a visual check of your fireplace’s flame patterns.
Make sure the flames are steady - not lifting or floating. The
thermopile/thermocouple (standing pilot) tips should be covered
with flame. See Figure 21.
Checking Vent System
Frequency: Before initial use and at least annually thereafter,
more frequently if possible.
By: Qualified service technician/Home owner.
Task: Inspect the external vent cap on a regular basis to ensure
that no debris is interfering with the flow of air. Inspect entire vent
system for proper function.

Cleaning Logs
Use a soft brush attachment on a vacuum cleaner to gently remove
dust or soot deposits from logs and burner.
Cleaning Glass Door
Frequency: After the first 3 to 4 hours of use. As necessary after
initial cleaning.
By: Home owner.
Task: Remove and clean glass after the first 3 to 4 hours of use.
After the initial cleaning, clean as necessary. Film deposits on the
inside of the glass door should be cleaned off using a household
glass cleaner.
NOTE: DO NOT handle or attempt to clean the door when it
is hot and DO NOT use abrasive cleaners.
Glass Door Replacement
Do not operate the fireplace insert if the high-temperature ceramic
glass is cracked or broken.
Do not attempt to replace the ceramic glass panel. A complete
replacement glass door assembly should be ordered as listed in
the Parts List on page 25, if needed.
Do not use substitute materials for replacement of glass door
components.
Do not abuse the glass door by striking the glass.
Do not abuse the glass door by slamming or forcing the door
