Operation
! NOTE: The heater may emit a slight, harmless odor
when first used. This odor is a normal condition caused
by initial heating of internal heater parts and will not
occur again.
This section will explain the function of each convenient
control (Figure 2).
To access the controls, flip open the control panel cover
towards the bottom of the fireplace (Figure 1).
Resetting The Temperature Cutoff Switch
This unit is equipped with a thermostat which controls the
temperature of the room. It does this by turning the
heater on and off. The heater is protected with a safety
device to prevent overheating. Should the heater
overheat, an automatic cut out will turn the heater off and
it will not come back on without being reset. It can be reset
by switching the Three Position On/Off Switch to Off (“ o ”)
and waiting five (5) minutes before switching the unit back
on.
Figure 1
CAUTION: If you need to continuously reset the heater,
unplug the unit and call Technical Support at
1-888-346-7539. Please have your model and serial
number ready when calling.

Remote Control
The fireplace is supplied with an
integrated on/off remote control.
! Note: Ensure that the Three
Position On/Off Switch on the
fireplace is set to the remote
control setting (“ II ” position).
A. Three Position On/Off Switch
The switch has two (2) on positions marked with “ I ” and
“ II ”. The “ I ” position is for manual operation. In this
position the built-in remote control is bypassed. The “ II ”
position is for operating the unit with the provided remote
control. When in “ II ” position the unit is operated with
the ON and OFF buttons of the remote control. When the
switch is in the center “ o ” position the unit is off..
To operate, push the ON button to
turn the fireplace on, push the OFF
button to turn the fireplace off.
Battery Replacement (Figure 3)
To replace the battery:
• Slide battery cover open on the
hand held transmitter.
• Correctly install one (1) 12 Volt
(A23) battery in the battery holder.
• Close the battery cover.
B. Flame Action Control
Turn the Flame Action Control knob to adjust the flame
action to the desired level.
C. Light Dimmer Control
Turn the Light Dimmer Control knob to increase or
decrease the brightness of the interior of the fireplace.

Remote Initialization
Follow these steps for remote control
initialization and if required,
reinitialization:
1. Disconnect power to fireplace.
2. Set the Three Position On/Off Switch to the Remote
position (Figure 2A).
3. Wait a minimum of five (5) seconds and then reacquire
power to fireplace.
4. Within 10 seconds of reacquiring power, press the ON
button located on the remote control transmitter.
D. Heater On/Off Switch
The Heater On/Off Switch supplies power to the heating
unit when the Three Position On/Off Switch (A) is on (“ I ”
or “ II ” positions).
E. Thermostat Control
To adjust the temperature to your individual requirements,
turn the thermostat control clockwise all the way to
turn on the heater. When the room reaches the desired
temperature, turn the thermostat knob counter clockwise
until you hear a click. Leave in this position to maintain the
room temperature at its setting. For additional heat, turn
clockwise until you hear the click again and the heater will
turn on. To turn the heater off, rotate the knob fully counter
clockwise.
! NOTE: You will have only 10 seconds to perform this last
step. Failure to do so will result in these steps needing
to be followed again.

Light Bulb Replacement
Allow at least five (5) minutes for the light bulbs to cool
before touching them to avoid accidental burning of the
skin. The light bulbs need to be replaced when you notice
a dark section of the flame or when the clarity and detail
of the log ember bed exterior reduces. There are three
(3) bulbs under the Log Set Assembly, which generate the
flames and embers, and two (2) bulbs above that illuminate
the log exterior.
It is a good idea to replace all of the light bulbs at one time
if they are close to the end of their rated life. Group
replacement will reduce the number of times you need to
open the unit to replace the light bulbs.

Flame Action Control Replacement
If the fireplace was operating prior to servicing allow at
least 10 minutes for light bulbs and heating element to cool
off to avoid accidental burning of skin.
Disconnect power before attempting any maintenance or
cleaning to reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to
persons.
! NOTE: If mounting studs are damaged, replacement
mounting studs will need to be inserted from
underneath Log Set Assembly. Follow steps 1 - 6 of
Mirror Replacement procedure on page 9 to do this. It
is recommended to attempt to release the control board
without cutting mounting studs.
Replacement Procedure:
1. Remove the firebox from the mantel.
2. Lay unit on its back.
3. Remove the 12 Philips screws that fasten the bottom
cover to the rest of the firebox. There are: two (2)
screws on each side; two (2) screws on the back panel
(you may have to tip the bottom of the firebox up if it is
laying on its back), four (4) screws in the front directly
7. Properly orientate the replacement Flame Action
Control board and push it onto the four (4) mounting
studs (running the connecting Potentiometer wires
under the board where possible) until the clasps of the
mounting studs snap the control board into place.
8. Properly orientate the Potentiometer attached to the
replacement control board, push it through the front
control panel and anchor it in place using the retaining
nut removed in step 5.
9.Disconnect one of the wire leads from the original
control board (which are still connected to parts
within the firebox) and immediately connect it to the
new control board’s terminal, matching its position.
Continue with the remaining wires (there are four (4)
wires which are piggy-backed together in pairs, and the
cable connector which leads to the Flicker Motor) using
the same procedure.

Replacement Procedure
1. Remove the firebox from the mantel.
2. Remove the 10 Philips screws that fasten the top cover
to the rest of the firebox. There are: (four) 4 screws at
the back of the firebox, along the top; two (2) screws on
each side and at the top of the firebox; and two (2)
screws on the top of the firebox (Figure 18).
4. Flip the top panel over and place upside down on the
top of the unit. You may experience some resistance as the Heater Assembly is mounted to the top panel
and may be a snug fit inside the firebox. Orientate
yourself with the placement of the Heater Assembly
and wiring as shown in Figure 19.
5. Turn the top panel over and, while supporting the
Heater Assembly and panel in one hand, remove the
five (5) Phillips heater mounting screws, noting the
center screw is of a larger diameter (Figure 20).
6. Separate the Heater Assembly from the top panel.
7. Properly orientate the new Heater Assembly and attach
it to the top panel using the screws removed in step 5.
8. Disconnect one of the wire leads from the original
Heater Assembly (which are still connected to parts
within the firebox) and immediately connect it to the
new Heater Assembly’s terminal, matching its position.
Continue with the remaining wires using the same
procedure.
CAUTION: Internal wiring and colors may not be the

under the control panel; and two (2) screws on the
bottom of the firebox (see Figure 8, page 10). The
bottom panel is now free to be removed.
4. Locate and disconnect the two (2) power cord wire
connections. The smooth edged wire leading from the
narrow blade of the power plug connects to the middle
of the three (3) terminals on the Three Position On/
Off Switch; the side of the power cord leading from the
wide blade of the plug, and has ridges along its edge
leads to the bottom, right terminal of the Flame Action
Control board (Figure 21).
5. Using pliers, squeeze the sides of the plastic wire
clamp on the Power Cord from inside the chassis and
push it through the sheet metal.
6. Release clamp from the Power Cord and remove
Power Cord from the firebox.
7. Run replacement Power Cord through the firebox as
above and connect wire ends as described in step 4.
