WARNING
Important: Read these instructions carefully
before starting installation.
If the information in this manual is not followed
exactly, a fire or explosion may result, causing
property damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
- Do not store or use gasoline or other
flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity
of this or any other appliance.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
• Open a window.
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use
any phone in the building.
• Immediately call the gas supplier from a
neighbor’s phone. Follow the gas supplier’s
instructions.
• If you cannot reach the gas supplier, call the
fire department.
- Installation and service must be
performed by a qualified installer,
service agency, or the gas supplier.
INSTALLER & CONSUMER
These instructions MUST be
retained with this appliance
BE SURE DAMPER IS FULLY OPEN
WHEN OPERATING THE LOG SET
PETERSON VENTED GAS LOG SETS ARE TO
BE OPERATED ONLY IN A FULLY VENTED,
NONCOMBUSTIBLE FIREPLACE WITH DAMPER
AND CHIMNEY FREE OF ANY OBSTRUCTIONS. THE
FIREPLACE MUST BE DESIGNED AND APPROVED
TO BURN WOOD. Like burning natural firewood, the
Peterson log set is designed to burn with a yellow,
smoky flame. For this reason, it must be adequately
vented. Be sure the fireplace damper is fully open when
you burn the gas log set. The smallest dimension of the
chimney flue must be at least 8". If it is smaller, DO NOT
USE A PETERSON LOG SET. If fumes from the burner
emerge into the room when the damper is fully open,
creating a smell like a smoldering oil lamp, it indicates
that the fireplace draft is defective. Check chimney flue
for obstructions. DO NOT OPERATE LOGS UNTIL THE
FIREPLACE DRAFT IS CORRECTED. Check with your
dealer or installer. Do not use firewood with this unit.
This safety pilot system contains a control certified
by C.S.A.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The installation, including provisions for combustion
and ventilation air, must conform with local codes or,
in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 (latest edition).
This appliance must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff
valve during any testing of the gas supply system at
test pressures up to and including 1/2 psig.
This appliance and its individual shutoff valve must
be disconnected from the gas supply piping system
when testing at pressures exceeding 1/2 psig. Do this
by closing the gas supply valve.
WHEN GLASS FIREPLACE ENCLOSURES
(DOORS) ARE USED, OPERATE THE GAS LOG
SET WITH THE GLASS DOORS FULLY OPEN;
BOTH SIDES IF FIREPLACE IS SEE-THRU TYPE.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
(Refer to the PARTS LIST when following these instructions.)
CONNECTING THE SAFETY VALVE TO THE
Be sure the automatic remote lighting safety pilot system has BURNER
GENERAL
been assembled for the proper gas. Systems labeled APK11(M) are for natural gas and APK-11(M)P are for propane
gas. APK-11(M) is for use only with Peterson natural gas
burner systems sizes 12" to 30". Larger burner systems
should use the APK-10(M).
1. Follow the instructions supplied with the Peterson gas
log set for proper burner placement.
2. Attach the street elbow (see PARTS LIST) to the fuel
injector or air mixer (Item 4) supplied with burner. Ensure
all connections are tight.
INSTALLATION ON SEE THRU BURNER
Note: APK-11(M)P can be used on all standard
size propane burner systems to 30" and on
see-thru propane burner systems up to 18".
Connect the street elbow to the “tee” fitting on the burner
manifold. Ensure all connection are tight.
Important: For safe and correct operation, attach
pilot assembly to the burner pan that
receives gas first during operation
(see Fig. 3-1).
A fuel injector (for natural gas) is included with the unit
which contains an enlarged orifice (14 D.S.). If you are using
a 24" or 30" natural gas log set, remove the fuel injector
from the burner pan and replace it with the enlarged fuel
injector. There is no need to replace the air mixer if using
propane gas.
CONNECTING THE SAFETY VALVE TO THE GAS
SUPPLY
1. Turn off the gas supply to the fireplace.
2. Attach the hearth elbow supplied with the CK-4
connector kit (Item 9) to the gas supply. This item
is supplied with the burner assembly.
3. Remove and discard the small brass connector
elbow from the CK-4. Attach the CK-4 connector
tube, one end to the hearth elbow that is attached
to the gas supply and the other end to the brass
elbow that is attached to the safety valve.
Note: If the flame height is adequate, there is no
need to use the enlarged orifice (14 D.S.)
provided with this kit. Be sure all cautions
and warnings contained in the Peterson
gas log instructions are followed.
These instructions must be used as a supplement to the
instructions supplied with the gas log set. Follow the gas log
set instructions and make adjustments as appropriate for the
addition of the unit. Gas supply must be 1/2" minimum I.D.
and with proper pressures. Use Teflon tape or pipe sealing
compound that is resistant to propane gas on all male pipe
connections. Make sure that all connections are tight.
CONNECTING THE PILOT ASSEMBLY TO THE
SAFETY VALVE
1. Connect one of the spade clips on the wires from the
generator (Item 5) to the terminal screw marked TP and
the other spade clip to the terminal screw marked THTP on the safety pilot valve (Item 2). Tighten screws.
Note: This unit adds six additional inches to the
footprint of the burner system.
Note:
SAFETY VALVE INSTALLATION
Use Teflon tape or pipe compound for all male pipe
connections to prevent gas leaks.
Two wires, one from the toggle switch control and
one from the generator, should be connected to
terminal screw marked TH-TP. BE SURE THE
JUMPER WIRE IS IN PLACE (Fig. 3-1).
2. Screw the pilot gas supply (Item 5) to the safety valve
at the pilot gas port marked PILOT. Be sure the
connection is tight.
Note: The valve assembly is pre-assembled for
ease of installation. The valve must be
installed on the right side of the burner.
PLACEMENT OF THE APK SAFETY VALVE
Elbow
Burner pan
Correct placement of the APK safety valve in the fireplace
is important to ensure proper operation. The valve must be
placed in the front right corner of the fireplace. Placement in
the front left corner of the fireplace or outside the firebox is also
permitted, but may require additional connecting parts.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
HOW TO LIGHT THE PILOT
HOW TO TURN THE GAS LOG SET ON AND OFF
USING THE APK SYSTEM
To light the pilot from the PILOT position, push in
slightly on the safety valve knob and turn to the OFF
position. Wait five minutes, then turn the safety valve
knob to the PILOT position. Push the safety valve knob
fully in and at the same time place a long match or a
butane lighter at the pilot burner. The pilot will light. Hold
the safety valve knob in for approximately 60 seconds.
If the pilot does not stay lit, turn the safety valve knob
to the full OFF position. Wait five minutes and repeat
the LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS.
To turn on the gas log set with the pilot lit, turn the
safety valve knob to the ON position. Switch the toggle
switch control to the ON (up) position and the gas log
set will light.
To turn off the gas log set, switch the toggle switch
control to the OFF (down) position. The pilot will remain
lit.
To turn off the pilot, be sure the toggle switch control
is OFF, and depress and turn the safety valve knob to
the OFF position.
Generator
For remote lighting; follow the instructions for lighting
the pilot above and then follow the instructions that
came with your remote.
MAINTENANCE OF THE APK SYSTEM
The log set is equipped with a safety pilot that will shut
off the gas supply in case the pilot is not burning or
functioning properly. Make sure the pilot is adjusted
properly and that the generator spade clips are tightly
connected to the terminal screws on the valve. If the
pilot will not stay lit, call the local gas utility or gas
supplier.
Pilot
Lighting the pilot
Fig. 6-1
Pilot flame should encircle top of the generator
A periodic check of the following should be performed
at least annually by a qualified, professional service
representative:
PILOT ADJUSTMENT
A. The pilot flame should encircle the generator tip,
which is preset at the factory (Fig. 2-1). Ordinarily,
the pilot will not require field adjustment.
1. Valves and toggle switch control for proper
operation.
2. Flue system for rust, damage, or leaks.
B. If adjustment is necessary, remove the cap screw
and turn the smaller gas adjustment screw inside
counter-clockwise to increase the pilot flame and
clockwise to decrease the pilot flame. Replace cap
screw. Refer to Fig. 3-1, page 3.
3. Damper operation.
4. Orifices for dirt or other foreign matter.
5. Visual check on the burner.
