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 mem-
bers of your household. Someday, 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
Page 4
•
•
to set too long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which
have been 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.

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.
Note: Never use plastic pipe. Check to confirm whether your local
codes allow copper tubing or galvanized.
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.
A gas valve and ground joint union should be installed in the gas
line upstream of the gas control to aid in servicing. It is required
by the National Fuel Gas Code that a drip line be installed near
the gas inlet. This should consist of a vertical length of pipe tee
connected into the gas line that is capped on the bottom in which
condensation and foreign particles may collect.
Pressure Testing of the Gas Supply System
1. To check the inlet pressure to the gas valve, a 1/8" (3 mm) N.P.T.
plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connection, must be
placed immediately upstream of the gas supply connection to
the appliance.
2. 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).
3. 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).

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!
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 Pressure
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. (.872 kPa) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 5.0" w.c.
(1.245 kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
10.5" w.c. (2.614 kPa) Propane gas models will have a manifold
pressure approximately 7.0" w.c. (2.49 kPa) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 11.0" w.c.
(2.739 kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
13.0" w.c. (3.237 kPa).
A 1/8" (3 mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge
connection, is located on the outlet side of the gas control.

CLEARANCES FOR DIRECT VENT
1.
Pick a location on a wall with a clear space in the room. In
selecting a location for installation, it is necessary to provide
adequate accessibility clearances for servicing and proper
installation. Be sure to locate the unit close enough to a 110
VAC wall receptacle to properly power appliance.
2.
When facing the front of the furnace the minimum clearances
from casing to combustible construction are 0” (0 mm) on top,
0” (0 mm) on each side, recommend 4” (102 mm) on sides
for servicing and 0” (0 mm) from the floor, 0” (0 mm) to rear
wall and 40” (1,016 mm) from Mantis top to ceiling.
3.
The minimum distance from the center of the vent cap to the
nearest outside corner or obstruction is 12” (305 mm).
4.
The minimum wall depth is 4” (102 mm) and the maximum
is 48” (121.92 cm).
The vent terminal of a direct vent appliance, with an input of
50,000 BTU (14.6KW) per hour or less shall be located at least
9” (229 mm) from any opening through which flue gases could
enter a building.
The bottom of the exhaust vent terminal and the air intake shall
be located at least 12” (305 mm) above grade and must be vented
outside.
WARNING: The nearest point of the vent cap should be
a minimum horizontal distant of six (6) feet (1.83 m) from
any pressure regulator. In case of regulator malfunction,
the six (6) feet (1.83 m) distance will reduce the chance of
gas entering the vent cap.
Installation on Rugs and Tile
If this appliance is to be 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.
The base referred to above does not mean the fire-proof base as
used on wood stoves. The protection is primarily for rugs that may
be extremely thick and light-color tile that can discolor.
HEATER INSTALLATION FOR DIRECT VENT
Locating Wall Opening
The recommended location for this furnace is on an outside wall.
Locate wall studs so that wall vent opening will be located between
wall studs. The wall opening required for venting is a 3 1/2” (89
mm) minimum diameter opening.

2.
3.
Pick a location on a wall with a clear space in the room. In
selecting a location for installation, it is necessary to provide
adequate accessibility clearances for servicing and proper
installation. Be sure to locate the unit close enough to a 115
VAC wall receptacle to properly power appliance.
When facing the front of the furnace, the minimum clearances
from casing to combustible construction are 0” (0 mm) on top,
0” (0 mm) on each side, recommend 4” (102 mm) for servicing
and 0” (0 mm) from the floor and 2” (51 mm) to rear wall for
servicing and installation.
The minimum distance from the center of the vent cap to the
nearest outside corner or obstruction is 12” (305 mm).
The bottom of the exhaust vent terminal and the air intake shall
be located at least 12” (305 mm) above grade and must be vented
outside.
WARNING: The nearest point of the vent cap should be a
minimum horizontal distance of six (6) feet (1.83 m) from
any pressure regulator. In case of regulator malfunction,
the six (6) feet (1.83 m) distance will reduce the chance of
gas entering the vent cap.
Installation on Rugs and Tile
If this appliance is to be 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.
The base referred to above does not mean the fire-proof base as
used on wood stoves. The protection is primarily for rugs that may
be extremely thick and light-color tile that can discolor.
HEATER INSTALLATION FOR SINGLE FLUE
Locating Wall Opening
The recommended location for this heater is on an outside wall (the
unit can be located on an inside wall but must not exceed 40’ (12.19
m) in exhaust vent length). Locate wall studs so that wall vent opening
will be located between wall studs. The wall opening required for
venting is a 1 7/8” (48 mm) minimum diameter opening.
Refer to Figures 3 to 6 for positioning the heater on wall and for
locating gas line connection and vent opening. Heater can sit on
the floor.

VENT EXAMPLES FOR SINGLE FLUE
Max Vent Run - 40 ft. Equivalent With Three (3) 90° Elbows
Special Note: The vent terminal 90° elbow and first 90° elbow off back of the heater, when within 6” (15.2 cm), do not contribute to the overall vent length measurement. For each 45° elbow installed in the horizontal run, the length of the horizontal run
MUST be reduced by 1.5 feet (45 cm). This does not apply if the 45° elbows are installed on the vertical part of the vent system.
Reduce the length of the horizontal run 3 feet (91.4 cm) for every 90° elbow.
Note: On horizontal runs, a P.V.C. support clamp needs to be installed every 3 feet. No “sags” in horizontal vent runs; water will settle
in the pipe.
When installing a single flue horizontal, the minimum vent length protruding from the outside wall is 6” (15.2 cm). See Figure 17.
Minimum vent from the rear of the unit is 12”.
Note: Horizontal discharge 90° elbow must be pointed downward. See Figure 18. All horizontal runs require either a 1/4” per foot rise
to run condensation back to the heater, or a 1/4” per foot downward slope to run condensation away from the heater.
Note: All PVC vent run piping can be purchased at a local hardware store. Schedule 40 PVC pipe should be used and cemented.

LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
1.
Main Electrical power supply must always be switched on to
the unit with the two burner switches in the off position (up)
before lighting the heater.
2.
Turn on main gas supply.
3.
Verify that main electrical supply is switched on by checking
the 115V AC power status display (Figures 40 and 41) indicator is on.
4.
Burner selection: select low burn (front burner), medium
burn (rear burner), or high burn (both burners). Low burn
switch (Figure 41) controls the front burner only. Medium
burn switch (Figure 42) controls the rear burner only. When
both switches are down, they will activate both the low and
medium burners, which is the high setting.
5.
Heater operating LED sequence (Front Display Panel). Before starting ensure that the power L.E.D (Figure 43A) is on
and burner switches are off. Switch on the heater by engaging the low and medium burner switch, this will activate the
pressure switch and the exhaust fan L.E.D (Figure 43E) will
be on. Also the two burner L.E.D’s (Figure 43C and 43D)
will start flashing for 35 seconds prior to ignition. Once
both burners have ignited, the burner L.E.D’s will remain
on. If you can’t see flame on the rear burner, but the burner
L.E.D is on, then there will be flame there which will become more visible as the heater warms up. Once the heater
warms up the low speed L.E.D (Figure 43F) will light and
the convection fan will blow warm air from the heater. As
the heater becomes warmer, the medium L.E.D (Figure 43G)
will come on. When the heater has reached its highest operating temperature, all three L.E.D’s will light up and the
convection fan will now be running at its high speed. Refer
to page 38 - Fan Operation. When the heater has been running for some time, the water pump L.E.D (Figure 43B) may
come on to signal that the pump has been activated. Refer to
page 41 - Automatic Humidifier Operation.
Note: Three heat settings are available for operating your Mantis
heater - low, medium and high.
a. Low setting (front burner only) - engage low burn switch
only (Figure 41)
b. Medium setting (rear burner only) - engage medium
burner switch only (Figure 42)
c. High setting (front and rear burners).

AUTOMATIC HUMIDIFIER OPERATION
Most gas heaters dry out the air in the room. The Mantis has ingeniously solved this problem with an Automatic Humidifier.
Gas contains moisture which is normally expelled out the flue or
chimney after combustion. But the Mantis is so efficient by taking
92% of the heat out of the burnt gases that the moisture drops out
and condenses in the back of the heater. This water is collected
in a tank which is then pumped up to a stainless steel condensate
tray, where it evaporates in the stream of hot air which is blowing
into your home. Air humidity is automatically restored!
Figure 48
1.
The amount of condensate build up in the water sump is dependent on outside temperature, length and height of the flue pipe. The
automatic humidifier can operate from approximately 10 minute to 6 hour intervals, depending on ambient temperature, style and
type of flue. Long single vertical flues can cause the humidifier to come on more often depending on heater settings.
2.
When the automatic humidifier is engaged and is transferring the condensate into the holding tank, a hissing sound may be noticeable. This occurs when the condensate enters the holding tank and is quite normal. The duration of the sound may vary from 3 to 30
seconds until the holding tank has been filled with the condensate.
3.
When the automatic humidifier pump comes on to pump condensate into the stainless steal tray (located on the top of the heater),
the L.E.D. light (Page 36, Figure 43B) on the front panel will light up and flash while the condensate pump is operating, and then
extinguish after the pump has stopped operating. This means water has been pumped into the tank, and the automatic humidifier
operation will begin.

Note: When the heater or the Remote Control will not be used for long periods the burner switches should be in the OFF position,
also in summer the heater should be turned off at the power point.
Economy Display Mode
Economy Display Mode (Red Button Operation): The red button above the two burner switches (figure 52) is called the economy display mode and will only function when a Controller has been installed in the heater. The most common way to use this button is to set
the controller to Thermo mode with a desired temperature set for the heater to turn on and off, which is dependant on the ambient temperature, location and the area the appliance is positioned. When using a controller both burner switches need to be in the ON position.
When the red button is pressed with both burner switches on, the front burner only will ignite or if already alight, it will now remain on
regardless of what function or temperature is set on the Remote Control. The red button acts as an override switch for the front burner
only.
In this situation only the back burner will turn on and off according to the setting on the Remote Control. By running the heater this way
you will use less gas and still have the aesthetic effect of the front burner. However, if the appliance is in a small area, this setting may
get to warm for you. To change the setting, press the red button so that it is not illuminated and the heater will revert back to its normal
operation.
Note: When the heater or the Remote Control will not be used for long periods the burner switches should be in the OFF position,
also in summer the heater should be turned off at the power point.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Over Temperature Cut Out
The Mantis Power-Vent High-Efficiency Fireplace is protected
against overheating with a high temperature 80°C (176°F) cut off
switch to protect the heat exchanger, plastic sump and flue fan.
The high temperature cut off switch will automatically switch off
the gas supply to the heater, if the temperature in the room where
the heater is located reaches approximately 28°C (82.4°F). The
heater will go into lock out mode. An allowance of 15 minutes
minimum must be made to allow for the main fan to cool down
the heater prior to restarting the appliance.
Note: In most instances, overheating of the heater is a direct result
of too much lint and dust having accumulated in the main convection fan. This makes the fan unable to supply sufficient air to cool
down the heat exchanger. It is recommended that you inspect your
main convection fan prior to the start of the heating season and if
necessary have it serviced by a qualified service technician (refer
to Pages 45 and 46 - Maintenance).
Paint Curing - First Firing
The first fire in your heater is part of the paint curing process.
Your Mantis Power-Vent High-Efficiency Fireplace has been
painted with the highest quality heat resistant silicon paint available in the world.
To ensure that the paint is properly cured, light the unit and leave
it burning on high burn for approximately 1 hour.
1.
During initial firing of this unit, its paint will bake out, and
smoke will occur. To prevent triggering of smoke alarms,
ventilate the room in which the unit is installed. During initial
firing of logs, you will detect an odor as the logs are cured.
Also, during the curing process the logs will burn with a yellow flame.
2.
Don’t touch the surface of the heater. It will be soft during
this paint-curing phase. Once cured it will not be soft again.
3.
The paint finish of the heater should not be cleaned with any
caustic or abrasive cleaning solutions.
4.
Any damage to painted surface should be repaired with special touch paint available from your Mantis Dealer.
MAINTENANCE
Note:
Your appliance should be inspected, serviced and checked
annually by a qualified service person to ensure that your
appliance is operating safe and efficiently. Should you
detect any abnormality in the operation of your appliance call a qualified service person who has been trained
and approved to inspect and service the appliance. This
may be your installer or dealer (routine service is not
covered under warranty).

Glass Cleaning
It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically. During startup, condensation, which is normal, forms on the inside of the
glass and causes lint, dust and other airborne particles to cling to
the glass surface. Also, initial paint curing may deposit a slight
film on the glass. It is therefore recommended that the glass be
cleaned two or three times with a non-abrasive household cleaner
and warm water (we recommend gas fireplace glass cleaner) after
the initial burn. We do not recommend using packaged spray type
household glass cleaner. After that, the glass should be cleaned
two or three times during each heating season depending on the
circumstances present.
General Glass Information
Only glass approved for use in Empire Comfort Systems, Inc. fireplace may be used for replacement. The glass replacement must
be done by a licensed or qualified service person.
WARNING:
1. The use of substitute glass will void all product warranties.
2. Care must be taken to avoid breakage of the glass.
3. Under no circumstances should this appliance be operated
without the glass front or with a broken glass front. Replacement of the glass (with gasket) as supplied by the manufacturer must be done by a qualified service person.
4. Do not abuse the glass by striking or hitting the glass.
WARNING: Do not use abrasive cleaners on glass. Do not
attempt to clean glass when glass is hot.
Glass Assembly Replacement
1. Remove cabinet top.
2. Pivot left and right front panels open.
3. Release two door latches on left and right of firebox.

UNIT OPERATING FAULTS
SERVICE AND INSTALLATION OF THE APPLIANCE
SHOULD BE CARRIED OUT BY AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY.
THE MAJOR CAUSE OF OPERATING PROBLEMS WITH
GAS FIREPLACE HEATERS IS IMPROPER GAS PRESSURE, INCORRECT LOG PLACEMENT, IMPROPER INSTALLATION, INCORRECT FLUE INSTALLATION, INCORRECT SWITCHING OF BURNERS, DIPS/SPIKES IN
THE INCOMING POWER OR REVERSE POLARITIES.
The above situations can cause such problems as changes in
flame color or configuration, intermittent operations, changes in
heat output, carbon build up or sooting, bad odors, rattles or other
sounds, start up failures and burner(s) switching themselves off.
These are nearly always the result of improper installation or incorrect operation and it may take sometime for these problems
to show themselves. Before calling out a technician you must be
able to repeat the fault, try resetting the heater. Read below.
Note: Incorrect installation of the unit, logs, flue pipe, gas pressure or operation, which cause the above mentioned faults, are not
covered under warranty and a service call fee will be charged to
correct such problems.
RESETTING THE HEATER
There are a number of reasons why sometimes the heater will
switch itself off and is the correct thing for the heater to do in
certain situations (i.e. overheating, power failure or dips, windy
conditions, pump failure, partial or full blockage of flue pipe or no
gas. All of these operations are monitored by the electronic control box inside the heater, which is heat sensitive, pressure switch
sensitive, flame sensitive and water sensitive. If one of these items
is not correct, the heater will shut itself down.
minated. If you have a Remote burner switch and the rear burner
L.E.D. should start flashing, with the flue fan L.E.D. remaining
steady. Wait approximately 60 seconds for the rear burner to ignite. You can tell when it has lit, even if you can’t see any flames,
by looking at the rear burner L.E.D. which should remain steady.
Repeat the same process with the front burner. Turn on the front
burner switch and wait approximately 60 seconds and the front
burner L.E.D. will remain steady.
To reset, turn both burner switches to the OFF position, ensure the
red button above the two burner switches is not illuminated (if a
Remote Control is fitted, have it in the off mode). Then turn the
power off at the power point for approximately 10 seconds. Then
turn the power point back on and the power L.E.D. should be illu-
In approximately 5 minutes the convection fan should start and
the heater has been successfully reset.
Note: if the heater is still warm when reset the convection fan
may already be running when the unit is powered up.
LOG PLACEMENT
If for any reason a log should need replacement, you must use the
proper replacement log. Consult your Mantis dealer for correct
replacement logs.
22618-17-0308
Replacement logs must be installed and positioned as outlined on
page 18 under Log Installation.
Note:
Improper positioning of logs can create carbon build up
and will alter the unit’s performance and operation.
Page 47
MAIN CONVECTION FAN
The main convection fan in the heater should be checked, serviced and cleaned annually by a qualified service person to ensure
that your appliance is operating efficiently.
Note:
If the main convection fan becomes clogged with lint and
dust an over-temperature situation will occur through the
heater exchange system and the over-temperature safety
switch will stop the heater from operating.
HEAT EXCHANGER
The heat exchanger of the unit is located at the rear of the heater.
The heat exchanger should be inspected annually by a qualified
service person for lint and dust build up. Excessive dust and lint
build-up in the heat exchanger can alter the unit’s performance
and operation.
Note:
This appliance (Insert and Freestanding Models) needs
to be installed in such a way that the heater (especially
with models built into a fireplace) can be removed at all
times to service the heat exchanger and flue fan, which
are located at the rear section of the heater.
Under no circumstances should the appliance be installed
under conditions that would not allow for easy removal
of the appliance to carry out routine inspection and service work on the appliance.
DISCONNECT MAIN POWER PRIOR TO STARTING
ANY WORK ON THE APPLIANCE.
