Installing The Fireplace Shell
Framing
The fireplace may be installed in any location that maintains proper
clearances to air conditioning ducts, electrical wiring and plumbing.
Safety, as well as efficiency of operation, must be considered when
selecting the fireplace location. Try to select a location that does not
interfere with room traffic, has adequate ventilation, and offers an
accessible pathway for Direct Vent installation. Refer to page 4 - Vent
Installation for more information.

When installing a shelf over the top of the fireplace, the following
guidelines must be adhered to: For Rear Vent models (MD34DR-2),
the minimum clearance from the top of the fireplace to a shelf is 7". For
Top Vent models (MD34DT-2), the minimum clearance when using the
CRS30 is 15". (Minimum 1" clearance must still be maintained around
the vent pipes.)
10"
* Clearance from the top of the fireplace to a combustible
ceiling within the fireplace enclosure.
** Refer to page 11.
*** If the standard elbow (MEL90) is used with the Low
Clearance Sleeve (CRS30) the Top Clearance is 15".
If the Low Clearance Sleeve (CRS30) is NOT used
over the elbow, the Top Clearance is 35".
Unprotected combustible walls which are perpendicular to the
fireplace opening, must not project beyond the shaded area shown
in Figure 19b.
For protection against freezing temperatures, it is recommended
that outer walls of the chase be insulated with a vapour barrier. This
will reduce the possibility of a cold-air convection current on the
fireplace.

Installation
Installing The Gas Line
The gas line must be installed before finishing the MD34-DV-2 Fireplace.
Natural Gas requires a minimum inlet gas supply pressure of 5.5"
W.C. & a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C. Propane Gas requires a
minimum inlet gas supply pressure of 11" W.C. & a manifold pressure of
10" 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 brass 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.
Vent Installation
This section covers the installation of direct venting and terminations.
Installation Requirements
n MD34-DV-2 fireplaces are certified for use with Montigo Standard
Series (4" / 7") venting components
n Minimum 1" clearance to combustibles required for vent pipes
n Use only certified Montigo vent components. (Use of other
parts will void the Montigo warranty, and may impede the
operation of the fireplace.)
n All joints must be secured with a minimum of two screws per joint
n Vent terminations must not be recessed in walls or siding
n Horizontal runs must be supported by a minimum of two supports
per horizontal run. A minimusm of one screw on each side of
support is also required
n Flex vent sections may be stretched up to 50% of their total length
(eg. a 24" section may be stretched to 36")
n Maximum horizontal run for a flex section with no vertical rise is 3 feet.
Figure 5. Gas line access.
During any pressure testing of the gas supply piping that excedes 1/2
psig (3.5 kPa), the appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from gas supply system.
When pressure testing the gas supply piping system at test pressures of
less than or equal to 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa), the appliance must be isolated
from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff
valve.
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.
n Flex vent sections over 3 feet must fall within the limits set by the
venting graph and must have a minimum vertical rise of 3 inches
per foot of flex.
n Solid vent sections may be cut less than half way from the tapered end
n Venting components can be used in any combination of solid/rigid
pipe or flex pipe and in any orientation (Male connectors can face
in any direction)
Vent Terminations
Selecting A Termination Location
Choosing your vent termination location will help to determine whether
you need to use a top vent or rear vent fireplace. Figure 6, below,
shows typical fireplace locations and the venting options they provide.
For a more detailed diagram of allowed termination locations, see
Appendix B.
Installing The Remote Switch
The MD34-DV-2's gas valve, located behind the lower brass trim, may
be connected to a wall switch. The valve generates its own power. This
is a millivolt circuit. Use only low voltage wire, and DO NOT connect any
external power to it.
Refer to Figure 28 for wiring requirements.
Note: The switch location must not exceed 30' from the fireplace.
Figure 6. Fireplace locations and vent terminations.
Cautions:
n Vent terminations can be very hot. If the termination is less
than 7 feet above a public walkway, it should be fitted with a
certified Montigo Heat Guard. (Part no. MTKOG)
n Do not obstruct, or attempt to conceal, the vent termination.
These actions will affect the operation of the fireplace, and
may be hazardous.
n In heavy snow areas, take extra care to prevent snow buildup
from obstructing the vent termination.

Installation
Top Vent Venting Runs
For the MD34-DV-2, there are two types of installations: A) ThroughThe-Wall Installations and B) Vertical (Through-The-Roof) Installations.
A) Through-The-Wall Installations
Before you install any venting, you must determine whether the venting
run will be acceptable. Unacceptable venting can affect the fireplace's
combustion.
Top Vent
Heat Shields
Due to high flue temperatures, heat shields
are required on all 34 Series Modular
Direct Vent installations (except those with
vertical terminations) at the point where the
venting connects to the termination. With
the heat shield, vent clearances can be
maintained at 1".
The Venting Graph
Measure the vertical height from the fireplace hearth to the centre of the
termination and the horizontal run from the from the fireplace flue collar to
the wall flange of the termination. Plot on the Venting Graph (Fig. 7) with
an 'X'.
If the 'X' falls on or above the top boundary of the shaded area, the
installation is acceptable.
Example A: (Acceptable Installation)
If the vertical dimension from the hearth is 84" and
the horizontal run to the wall flange of the vent
termination is 36", this would be an acceptable
installation.

Finishing Around the Fireplace
Combustible mantels and mouldings may be safely installed over
the top and on the front of the fireplace provided that they do not
project beyond shaded area shown in Figure 21a. Side wall
clearances are 3". Combustible surrounds may be installed with 3"
clearance to the side of the fireplace as shown in Figure 21b.
We recommend careful consideration be given to the effects of
elevated mantel temperatures which may be in excess of product
design, for example: candles, plastic or pictures. This can cause
melting, deformation, discoloration or premature failure of T.V. and
radio components.

When selecting the finish material for your fireplace, it is important to
remember the following: BRASS TRIMS MUST NOT BE OBSTRUCTED IN ANY WAY - to do so restricts the air supply for
the control compartments and heat exchanger it also prevents access for servicing controls.
The face of the fireplace may be painted to match the room decor,
provided you use a heat-resistant paint. Decorative facing must not
extend past the fireplace opening at all, because it will interfere with
the access to retainers for removal of glass door.

Painting:
Special care is recommended by the Master Painters and Decorators Association, when painting the fireplace surrounds, to select
and apply a quality Alkyd sealer prior to the applying of latex
paints. This is to prevent leaching of water from evaporation and
causing a brownish staining effect to paint over coats.

Adjusting the Burner
Raising or lowering the Flame Height
The MD34-DV-2 fireplace is equipped with an adjustable burner,
allowing you to raise or lower the flames. Operating the control knob as
described below will adjust both the main burner and the ember burner.
n
To raise the flame height, turn the black knob (located behind the
lower trim) counterclockwise.
n
To lower the flame height, turn clockwise.
Maintenance
CAUTIONS
n Fireplace gas control must be in the “OFF” position and pilot
and main burners extinguished when cleaning appliance
with a vacuum.
n Doors and logs can get very hot. Handle only when cool.
General
n Have the fireplace installation inspected yearly, including a
visual check of the vent system, the burner and the pilot flame.
For your convenience a 1/8" manifold pressure tap is supplied
on the gas valve for a test gauge connection. See Figure 28.
n For Natural Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet
pressure of 5.5" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C.
n For Propane Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet
pressure of 11" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 10" W.C.
n Always keep the fireplace area clear and free of combustible
materials, as well as gasoline and other flammable vapours and
liquids.
n 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.
n Glass must be cleaned periodically to remove any film (which is
a normal biproduct of combustion) which may be visible. Film
can easily be removed by removing the door, as shown on
page 13. Handle the door carefully, and clean it with nonabrasive glass cleaners. One of the most effective products is
Kel Kem.
n 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.
n Use a vacuum cleaner or whisk broom to keep the control
compartment, burner, and firebox free from dust and lint.
n Logs may be cleaned periodically with a vacuum to remove
soot or other contaminates. The logs are fragile and will break
WARNING:
easily.
Do not attempt to clean glass when hot.
Do not clean glass with abrasive materials as any glass
etching may cause premature glass failure.
