Location
The main points governing location are flueing and warm air distribution. The heater must not
be installed where curtains or other combustible materials could come into contact with the
appliance. In some cases curtains may need restraining. The Neo gas fireplace is not designed
to be built into bookcases.
Standard flued appliances draw the air for combustion from the room itself so there is a need
for fixed ventilation. Fixed ventilation must be provided as per NZS 5261.
Clearances
The clearances listed below are minimum clearances unless otherwise stated.

Location
Mantels, surrounds, and hearths for inbuilt installations
A mantel and surround are allowed providing they are outside the minimum clearances shown
on the previous page.
Minimum clearance
The minimum clearance from the top of the appliance is 400 mm. The depth of the mantel/
surround at this minimum clearance must not exceed 150 mm.
Additional mantel/surround depth
For every 50 mm of added mantel depth/surround, there must be an additional 100 mm of
clearance. For example; a 200 mm mantel depth will require a 500 mm clearance from the top
of the appliance.
Hearths
A hearth is not necessary but can be used for decorative purposes or protection of sensitive
flooring if required. It must not obscure the front of the fire.
Electrical connection
The Neo is supplied with a power cord (length 1500 mm)
and a 3-pin plug. The standard electrical connection passes
through the rear panel, but can also pass through the left
and right hand side of the unit by removing the knockout
tab from the bottom edge of the front panel. If changing
the electrical position use the rubber grommet from the
rear of the appliance for cable protection.
Rinnai recommend the heater is plugged into a dedicated
240 V, 10 A earthed power point. The power point must not
be located above the heater (potential fire hazard). If the
supplied plug and power cord is to be used with an external
power point then the power cord will need to be fitted with
the supplied grommet.
A suitable means of electric isolation must be provided which is adjacent to the appliance and
accessible with the appliance installed.
The electrical cord is not fire rated and should not come into contact with the unit. If the
supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a licensed tradesperson. This must be a genuine
replacement part available from Rinnai—part number 6765B.

Location
TV installation above a fireplace
If installing a flat screen TV above the fire the main issue is heat. Heat from the fire and heat
from the flueing components that sit behind the TV, especially if recessed.
The Neo gas fires have a fan that distributes warm air from the top of the appliance out into
the room. As warm air is dispersed outwards as opposed to directly upwards, installation of a
TV may be an option. The diagram below outlines recommended minimum clearances when
installing a TV directly above the Neo inbuilt models. All dimensions are in millimetres.

For a TV mounted directly
above the Neo, the mantel
must be at least the depth
of the TV to deflect the heat
away from the appliance.
It is up to the customer to check the TV installation instructions with the TV supplier to verify
clearances. Some TV manufacturers have warranty conditions that state a TV is not to be
installed above a fireplace.
Rinnai does not accept any responsibility for damage to a TV resulting from the use of this
information.

General flueing information
Every gas fireplace requires a flue system that will draw effectively and clear flue products
safely under all potential wind and climatic conditions. It is the responsibility of the installer to
ensure that the appliance is provided with an effective flue.
For installations requiring a flue, a Rinnai flue system must be used. The flue system must be
fully assembled and secured in place before the appliance is installed.
Flashings
Flashings to the top of chimney structure do not form part of the flue kit and must be specified.
Clearance to combustibles
For installations using the Rinnai zero clearance flue components, the minimum clearance from
inner flue to combustible material must be greater than 50 mm. This equates to 25 mm from
the outer flue when using the Rinnai twin-skin flue.
Flue length and number of bends
Minimum flue length
This is required to ensure adequate draw and prevents spill-back of combustion products which
can cause the safety sensors to shut down the unit.
• minimum flue length before any bends or offsets
• minimum vertical flue length
= 1.0 m
= 3.6 m
Maximum flue length and number of bends
Rinnai recommend a maximum flue length of 8 m with a maximum of two 45° bends.
Self-supporting flue
The weight of the flue system should not be supported by the appliance—it
should be self-supporting. Supporting the flue is usually completed during the
framing stage with flue supports or straps within the cavity.

General flueing information
Shared flues
Gas appliances must not be connected to a chimney or flue serving a separate fuel burning
appliance.
Flue cowl clearance
To ensure products of combustion are cleared, adequate clearance for the building is required
and the below guideline is recommended.
Flue cowl should have a 500
mm clearance from any part of
the building. This also applies
to steeped and pitched roofs
which should be clear of the
ridge line as shown below.
Lesser clearances may provide
perfectly adequate flue systems
depending on the installation.
Minimum clearances are shown
in NZS 5261.

Masonry installations
1. Check dimensions of the opening
Refer 'Enclosure dimensions' and if necessary bring them to the required dimensions.
Check the chimney height as inadequate height can effect product performance. Some
installations may require the chimney height to be extended to reduce down drafts.
2. Check flueway
• Ensure there are no obstructions
• Provide a firm, flat and sealed base (sealed means no holes or openings in the fireplace)
• Ensure adequate support of the appliance (if not properly supported noise and vibration
may result)
3. Install flexiliner flue system
To ensure adequate draw for maximum performance of the appliance, Rinnai strongly
recommends the use of a Rinnai flexiliner flue system for masonry installations. Failure to meet
this installation criteria may result in an unsafe situation. Performance issues resulting from
inadequate flueing is not covered by the warranty.
Installation without a flexiliner is permissible in masonry installations as long as the chimney
has been checked for soundness and ability to achieve a good draw.

4.Installing the heater into the fireplace
Apply the supplied foam seal strip to the rear of the heater. The strip is intended to form a seal
between the heater and the fireplace. If an adequate seal cannot be formed with this strip
another means of sealing must be used (non-combustible insulation) between the fireplace and
the heater body.
If using a flexiliner flue, prepare the heater engine by drilling four x Ø 3.2 mm holes in the prepressed dimples on the top panel of the heater. Attach the flue guide rails from the flue kit
using the supplied screws. Align the guide rails with the guide plate and slide the heater engine
into the enclosure until the guide plate is fully against the rear of the front assembly-this will
ensure the heater and flue spigot are correctly aligned.
Carefully move the appliance into the enclosure ensuring the gas supply feeds into the rear
access hole and fasten heater to the fireplace.

Mock chimney installations
For installations into a mock chimney a Rinnai zero clearance box and zero clearance flue kit is
required to isolate the appliance from combustible materials. Failure to meet this installation
criteria will void any product warranty.
1. Construct frame and install zero clearance box
Refer 'Enclosure dimensions' and construct frame. Assemble and install the RIB2310 zero
clearance box. Installation needs to be on a level base. If this is not done the appliance may
twist and become damaged—this will void any product warranty.

2. Install the flue and complete electrical connection
The weight of the flue system should not be supported by the appliance—it should be selfsupporting. Supporting the flue is usually completed during the framing stage with flue
supports or straps within the cavity. Flue supports have been included with the flue kit to assist
with this. These are to be riveted to the flue.
Please note, a twin-skin flue requires a 25 mm clearance (from the outer flue) from
combustibles.

Log set installation
The granule pack and log set, consisting of five log
pieces, comes packaged inside the appliance, you will
need to remove the glass retainer (four screws) before
installing the granules and log set. Use extreme care
when handling the log pieces, they are made from a
fragile material and will damage easily.
It is important you position the pieces in the order
shown below. Incorrect placement can create carbon build up and effect performance.
Malfunctioning due to improper log placement is not covered under warranty. The unit must
never be used with broken logs and should not be mixed with other burn media (except the
Rinnai Neo granules).
1. Check to ensure that the ports of the main
burner are clean and clear of any particles and all
packaging.
2. Select the thicker ‘Y’ log and fit into position by
lining up the two pin holes onto the two pins of
the locating bracket that is fixed to the centre of
the main burner.

3. Select the thick straight log and fit onto the
metal locators on the left rear of the panel. When
correctly located this log will be touching the
burner box walls.
4. Select the thinner ‘Y’ log and fit into position by
linking up the two pin holes onto the two pins of
the first two logs. Ensure this log is seated all the
way down until it touches logs 1 and 2.

Granule pack installation
The granules as well as being added to create a more realistic log flame effect (by
diffusing the gas flames through the burner ports) also assist in soot prevention and
are CRITICAL to the performance of the heater.
Never pour the granules directly from the pack as dust particles from the plastic bag
may block the ports.
NG installations
Place the granules evenly across the burner—use the whole pack.
ULPG installations
Carefully place 30 of the granules as close as possible to the front burner ports as shown on
the diagram below. DO NOT cover any of the front right side ports. It’s important this is done
correctly as incorrect placement can cause high yellow flames (dirty combustion) that may
cause sooting.
It is desirable that the flames touch the granules as this diffuses any ‘candling’ effect and
enhances the realistic log burning look of the heater.

5. Disconnect the power to the Gas Control Valve (GCV) by separating the connector for the
power supply (yellow wires). The GCV will automatically default to low pressure operation.
Using a 10 mm spanner hold the high pressure adjusting nut stationary while adjusting
the low pressure screw with a screw driver. Turning the screw clockwise will increase the
outlet pressure while turning the screw anti-clockwise will decrease the outlet pressure.
6. Replace the dust cap to its original position. It’s important this is done correctly to ensure
the correct operation of the GCV.
7. Reconnect the power to the GCV by rejoining the connector (yellow wires).
8. After confirming the correct pressures, turn the appliance off, remove the manometer,
tighten the ATPP sealing screw and leak test.
9. Turn the appliance on and off a few times to check ignition.
10. When you are satisfied that the heater is working correctly, reassemble and start the
appliance to check the flame pattern (refer next page).

Checking the flame pattern
It may take approximately two hours of operation for the logs to achieve their full flame
pattern and glow. During the initial burning in period, some smoke and smell may be
experienced. The appliance should be run on the high setting in a well ventilated room until
these dissipate. It is important to check the flame pattern during this time.
Abnormal flame pattern
Abnormal flame performance and/or pattern can indicate a problem with the fire, such as
blocked gas injectors, log movement during installation or incorrect flue installation. There are
some warning signs that could indicate a problem.

Fitting the frame assembly
Before fitting the frame assembly, ensure that it is not scratched or damaged in any way. The
frame assembly comes packaged in one box and contains the outer frame, glass dress guard
and inner frame.
NOTE
When placing the assembly down ensure it is placed on its lower edge or flat. If it is
placed on its left or right edge the glass may slide out off the stand-off posts. If this
should occur ensure that the silicon rubber mounts are not dislodged when sliding the
glass back into position.
1. Before installing the frame assembly remove the two black screws that are already
positioned in the appliance. These are located on the bottom of the unit, one each side.
2. Take the inner frame and hook the slanted edge (bottom is flat) over the top of the glass
retainer brackets and swing down into position onto the magnets.
3. Carefully lift the outer frame assembly complete with glass dress guard, taking care not
to tilt it on its edge as the glass may slide out off the stand-off posts. Come in close to the
heater and plug in the CAT cable into the control panel.
