Installing The Standoffs
Clearances
When installing a shelf over the top of the fireplaces, the following
guidelines must be adhered to:
For Rear Vent applications, the minimum clearance is 2" from the rear
of the fireplace to a wall, or any combustible materials, and 9" clearance
from the top of the fireplace to the underside of any combustible shelf
materials.
For Top Vent applications, the minimum clearance is 2" from the rear of
the fireplace to a wall, or any combustible materials, and 17 1/2" to the
underside of any combustible shelf materials, Figure 4.
For Top or Rear Vent applications where the Minimum mantel height
is required above the fireplace, (for an alcove or low profile shelf), ALL
Materials MUST BE NON-COMBUSTIBLE, Figure 5. The minimum
clearance is 2" from the rear of the fireplace to a wall, or any combustible
materials.
1” clearance is maintained on sides and bottom of vent runs and 2”
above horizontal vent runs to any combustible material.
To avoid elevated mantel temperatures, all H*38DF* gas
fireplaces are 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 6" clearance.

„„ The maximum termination point is 32’ above the fireplace (NOTE:
if the maximum termination height is used, the flame pattern
may be affected).
„„ The Vertical termination must be a minimum 2’ higher than where
the termination exits the roofing materials, (asphalt shingles,
cedar shakes, etc). This distance should be measured from the
high side of the roof slope where the flue flashing intersects the
roofing materials. (see Figures 9 to 9c).
„„ Termination location must be a minimum 6’ from a mechanical
air inlet.
„„ Termination location must be a minimum 18” from a parapet wall
„„ For a more detailed diagram of allowed termination locations,
see Appendix A. .
„„ A maximum of two offsets (each offset is made up of 2-90°
bends) may be made.

Connection and installation of the vent components should
adhere to the following guidelines:
„„ Use any combination of rigid and flex pipe as required and in
any orientation (Male connectors can face in any direction).
„„ Flex sections may be stretched up to 50% of their total length
(e.g. a 24” section maybe stretched to 36”).
„„ Connect all vent sections using a minimum of three sheet metal
screws on the outer pipe flue.
„„ Ensure the pipe ends male to female slide in a minimum of 1
1/2” of overlap.
„„ Ensure all runs are supported with a minimum of 3 supports
per 10’ of venting.
„„ When hanging/ supporting venting, ensure that 1” clearance
is maintained on sides and bottom of vent runs and 2” above
horizontal vent runs to any combustible material.
„„ Rigid pipe may be cut less than half way from the female end only.
„„ Ensure when cutting sections of rigid pipe to maintain integrity
of internal supports.
„„ Place the springs, supplied with the pipe kit, between the outer
and inner pipes to keep the pipes separate and avoid any
possible hot spots.
„„ Montigo recommends the use of a flex section for the final pipe
connected directly to the fireplace offering greater flexibility of
installation and absorption of movement.
„„ Firestops must be installed as required by National & local codes.
„„ Montigo recommends that all exterior corners and joints be sealed
with exterior caulking. However, we encourage you to consult
your Building Envelope Engineer or Waterproofing Consultant
for further recommendations.
IMPORTANT:
Please Refer to your Building Envelope Engineer
or Waterproofing Consultant for a review of ALL
penetrations through exterior walls or the roof.

Installing the remote On/Off Wall Switch
The H*38DF* gas valve may be connected to a wall switch. Do NOT
connect any external power to the remote switch. The valve will
generate its own power on a millivolt circuit or will draw its power from
an AC Connection inside the fireplace, depending on the model of the
unit. Use only low voltage wire, and DO NOT connect any external
power to the remote switch.
Refer to Figure 17, 18, or 19 for wiring requirements.
NOTE: The switch location must not exceed 30' from the fireplace.
Wiring for the optional Fan Kit
All H*38DF*fireplaces may be equipped with optional fan kits for circulating
heat into the living space.
Installations in Canada which employ the fans must be electrically
grounded in accordance with CSA C22.1 Canadian Electrical Code
Part 1 and/or Local Codes.
Installations in the USA which employ the fans must be grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.
For more information see the Fan Kit Installation Guide included with
the fan kit.

Pressure requirements are:
Gas Pressure
Natural Gas
Propane
Minimum inlet pressure
5.5in. w.c.
11in. w.c.
Manifold pressure
3.5in. w.c.
10in. w.c.
„„ The manifold outlet pressure is set from the factory to the
appropriate pressure but should be verified.
„„ To check pressures, control valves have a provision to remove
a 1/8” N.PT. plug to be fitted with a hose barb.
„„ Montigo requires a service shut off valve be located in an
accessible location to isolate the gas supply.
„„ Only install gas shut-off valves approved for use by the state,
province, or other governing body in which the fireplace is being
installed.
Section 5-3: GAS CONNECTION
„„ See Figure 21 for location of gas line access.
„„ Flexible gas connectors must not exceed 3 feet in length, unless
allowable within local regulations.
„„ Connect incoming gas line to the 1/2"or 3/8" gas inlet port.
„„ Purge all air out of gas line.
„„ Check appliance connection, valve and valve train under normal
operating pressure with a commercially available leak check
solution.
„„ DO NOT USE A FLAME OF ANY KIND TO TEST FOR LEAKS.
Figure 21. Gas line access.
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.
NOTICE
When pressure testing the fireplace, Gas line, and input system follow the appropriate
local codes or your area. DO NOT connect the fireplace to pressures in excess of
1/2lb. This will damage the gas control valve.
CAUTION
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. radio, and other electronic components.

Section 6: Finishing
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 22.
Fireplace Facing
When sizing the finish material for your fireplace, it is important to
remember the following: THE OPENING 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.
Side wall clearances are 3". Combustible surrounds may be installed
with 3" clearance to the side of the fireplace as shown in Figure 23.

Mantels & Surrounds
NOTE: National Canadian Gas Association mantel test requirements
are for fire hazard prevention to combustible materials.
New technology, to meet consumer and government demands for the
wise use of energy, has prompted us to manufacture many models of
fireplaces which are hot, fuel and energy efficient.
Please be aware; temperatures over the mantel will rise above normal
room temperature and walls above fireplace may be hot to touch.
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,
discolouration or premature failure of T.V. and radio components.
WARNING!
When covering the upper metal portion of the fireplace, (as shown,
Fig.22) with a non-combustible material Please Note: The decorative
facing materials may be subject to temperatures in excess of 250° F.
This should be considered when selecting facing materials.
NOTICE
Do not use ammonia based or abrasive cleaners on the glass, they will permanently
etch the surface. Use an approved gas fireplace glass cleaner such as Kel-Kem or
White off.
NOTICE
Do not operate this fireplace without the glass door or with a broken glass door.

General
 Have the fireplace and installation inspected yearly. The inspection
must include, but is not limited to, the following:
• A visual check of the entire vent system and termination.
• An inspection of the explosion relief flappers and the door
gaskets to ensure a proper seal.
• An inspection of the burner, vent run, and primary air openings.
• 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.
• 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.
„„ For Propane Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet
pressure of 11" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 10" W.C.
„„ Always keep the fireplace area clear and free of combustible
materials, as well as gasoline and other flammable vapours
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 21. Handle the door carefully, and clean it with nonabrasive
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 from the chamber
walls 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.
CAUTION!
 Fireplace gas control must be in the “OFF” position and pilot
and main burners extinguished when cleaning appliance with
a vacuum.
 Doors can get very hot. Handle only when cool.
