Gas Conversion Instructions
A. Conversion
CAUTION - Before you begin:
1. Shut off gas at the shut-off valve and disconnect the electrical
supply (if used).
2. Remove the glass door as shown in the installation instructions and remove the logs. Flip down the lower trims to access
the control compartment.
Ember Burner:
3. Disconnect the 1/4" tubing from the fitting on the underside of
the pan base. Disconnect the fitting from the inlet side of the gas
control valve.
4. Spin off the coupling just above the tee. The gas valve assembly
will drop out of the way, allowing access to the coupling.
5. Unscrew the coupling assembly from the pan base. The orifice is
located at top end of coupling. Unscrew it and install the orifice
from the package marked 'Ember Burner Orifice' in this kit to
convert to the new gas.
Figure 2. Converting the Sit 820 gas control valve.
8. Remove pilot hood/ orifice cap by pulling it off the pilot assembly.
The cap will snap off with slight pressure; the orifice must be
removed with an allen key. (See Figure 4)
9. Install the new orifice from the package marked 'Pilot Orifice' in
this kit to convert to the pilot to the new gas. Tighten the orifice

securely with an allen key. Re-attach the pilot hood, making sure
the notch in the hood lines up with the tab on the pilot assembly.
Figure 1b. Changing the ember burner orifice.
6. Before re-assembling the gas tubing, the gas valve must be
converted to operate on the new gas.The gas control valve supplied with this appliance has a removable regulator. To replace
it, remove the three screws as shown in Figure 2, and install the
new regulator supplied with this kit.
Apply the label indicating that the control valve has been converted for use with a different gas, to the body of the gas valve in
a visible location.

under the gas valve.
10. Remove cover plate on both ends of the main (center) burner
and remove main burner tube. (See figure 5)
11. Loosen the set screws at each end of the burner tube. Slide the
sleeves out of each end of the tube and replace them with the
ones from the package marked 'Main Burner Sleeves' in this kit.
(See Inset, Figure 6.) Re-tighten the set screws.
12. Remove the orifices from the orifice holder at each end and
replace them with the new orifices from the package marked
'Main Burner Orifices' in this kit. (See Figure 6.) Make sure the
Orifices are tightened securely to prevent gas leaks.
13. Re-install the main burner, making sure you center the burner between the two orifices. Ensure that the burner's flame
ports are pointed 90 degrees to the horizontal. Secure the burner
by re-attaching both cover plates.
B. Checking the Gas Pressure
1. To check the Inlet and Manifold gas pressures, use a Water
Column Pressure Gauge with 5/16" dia. tubing. Make sure the
gas shut-off valve is closed, then attach the gauge to
the Manifold Pressure Test Connection by loosening the screw
shown in Figure 7. The tubing must be tight in the connection to
prevent gas leaks. Measure the Manifold Pressure and compare
the value against the chart below.

2. Turn off the fireplace and close the shutoff valve. Remove the
test gauge. Re-tighten the test connection screw to prevent gas
leakage.
3. Repeat the procedure for the Inlet Pressure.

14. Leak test using a soap solution with main burner turned on. Coat
pipe and tubing joints, gasket etc. with soap solution. Bubbles
indicate leaks. Tighten any areas where the bubbles appear until
the bubbling stops completely.
15. Light the fireplace pilot, and turn the gas control knob to the ON
position. Ensure all three burners light properly.
4. If the pressure readings are not within the limits set out, contact
the factory. If the pressure readings are correct, ensure that both
test connection screws are tightened securely, to prevent a gas
C. Pilot Burner Adjustment
1. Locate the Pilot Adjustment Screw. (See figure 7)
2. Adjust pilot screw to provide properly sized flame. To increase the
flame, turn the screw counterclockwise. To decrease the flame,
turn it clockwise. (The flame should impinge on the thermocouple
and thermopile, as shown in Figure 8)
Re-Assembly
16. Replace the logs, re-install the door and the door surround.
17. The label (part no. XL0201) indicating that the fireplace has been
converted for use with a different gas must be placed on the
fireplace rating plate over top of the existing fuel type chart.
18. The label (part no. XL0200) indicating who converted the appliance must be filled out and placed on the base pan, directly
