CLEARANCES TO
COMBUSTIBLES
Minimum ceiling height is 36" / 914 mm from
top of unit.
The clearances listed below are MINIMUM
distances. Measure the clearance to both the
appliance and the chimney connector. (The
farthest distance is correct if the two clearances do not coincide.) For example, if the
appliance is set as indicated in one of the figures
but the connector is too close, move the stove
until the correct clearance to the connector is
obtained.
Outside Air Through
Rear of Pedestal
Remove the blanking plate from the rear of the
pedestal cover plate and bend the two tabs
out 90 degrees. Pipe fresh air into the pedestal
area by using duct pipe with a mesh grill at the
outside termination. Attach the pipe to the tabs
with screws.
This unit can be installed on a solid combustible
surface like a wood floor. This unit can also be
installed directly on carpeting or vinyl when
the bottom pedestal cover plate (provided with
unit) is installed.
This appliance may be installed only with the
clearances as shown in the situations pictured.
Do not combine clearances from one type of
installation with another in order to achieve
closer clearances.
Use the minimum clearances shown in the diagrams below for installation with "B" vent.
Side View
If further reduced clearances are needed, obtain
requirements for construction of a protected wall
from your local building authorities and their allowable reductions of the listes clearances.

INSTALLATION
DRAFT HOOD
VENTING
This heater has a draft hood built in. It must not
be altered, obstructed, or blocked in any way,
and the unit must be installed so that the draft
hood is in the same atmospheric pressure zone
as the combustion air inlet to the burner. This
heater must be properly connected to a venting system. This heater is equipped with a vent
safety shutoff system.
This heater is a vented appliance and must be
connected to a chimney/flue in accordance with
the installation codes.
WARNING: Operation of this heater when
not connected to a properly installed and
maintained venting system or tampering
with the vent safety shutoff system can
result in carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning
and possible death.
HIGH ELEVATION
The U38-1 (with 40,000 BTU rating) is approved
in Canada for altitude 2000 ft. to 4500 ft. (CAN/
CGA-2.17-M91) with the orifice kit (Part # 591975). For Natural Gas installations above 4500
ft. follow current CAN/CGA-B149.1.
In U.S.A., for installations above 2000 ft. refer
to current ANSI Z223.1 Sc8-8.1.2a appendix F,
for resizing orifice.
Note:
Vent Terminations
The rear pedestal cover plate is
only required when outside air is
being used. If using room air for
combustion, remove this plate from
the back of the pedestal.
For your safety this heater is equipped with a
vent safety switch designed to sense incorrect
venting and react by shutting down the gas supply. This thermally actuated switch is located
within the draft hood and will detect either a
blocked chimney or backdraft condition where
the chimney flow has reversed. If this switch
shuts the unit down, it indicates a drafting
problem that must be identified and rectified
without delay - the thermally activated switch
must never be bypassed or disconnected as a
hazardous or deadly condition can result.
Venting Requirements
A four inch diameter vent is required. B-Vent,
Class A or Masonry with an approved liner
are all acceptable. For cosmetic or aesthetic
purposes 6" outer vent can be used as long as
an approved inner vent is installed. Fasten but
do not penetrate the inner sleeve of the B-Vent
when tightening the screw.
Follow all venting manufacturer’s requirements
and local building codes. In cold climates,
we recommend the use of insulated B-vent,
chase, and liners. For altitudes above 2000
ft. we recommend that a minimum flue height
of 12 ft. is used.
Installation into Existing
Woodstove Flue System
1) Clean existing Chimney system.
2) Run an approved 4" flex liner or "B" vent
into existing chimney.
Note:
See the chimney systems manufacturer for detailed installation
instructions.
Flue Mounting Bracket
Attach the flue mounting bracket with the enclosed screw as shown in the diagram.

1) Open the two side panels.
LOUVER
INSTALLATION
1) Attach the top & bottom louvers to the side
stove panel using 2 screws per side.
The smoke should be drawn into the draft
hood. If the smoke is not drawn into the draft
hood, turn the unit off and check for the cause
of lack of draft.
.
2) Slide the door
onto the two hinge
pins making sure
the two pieces
are flush together.
See diagram 1.
3) Close the door.
The latch plate
must be centered around the
alignment pin. See
diagram 2. If the latch
plate interferes with the
corner of the stove you
may want to angle the
plate slightly so the door
closes easier.
Note: If the flue is blocked or has a strong
reverse flow, the thermally actuated safety
switch mounted in the draft hood will automatically shut off the gas supply within about
10 minutes. If the heater turns off because
of this during the spillage test, check for the
cause of the lack of draft.
Diagram 1
4) The latches should already be at the proper
setting. If they are too hard or too easy
to close, you may want to adjust them by
loosening the latch catch. See diagram 3.
TEST FOR FLUE
SPILLAGE
A "spillage" test must be made before the
installed unit is left with the customer. Follow
the procedure below:
1) Start all exhaust fans in the home and any
other gas appliances. Then close all doors
and windows.
Diagram 2
5) Remove the blue plastic protective coating
from the glass.
6) Test the seal around the door by placing
a piece of paper between the unit and the
door, close the door and try to pull the paper
out. If it slips out easily, then the door is
not properly sealed. Tighten or loosen the
latch. See diagram 3.
2) Light the unit and set controls to maximum.
The thermally activated safety switch must
be manually reset before first startup.
3) After five minutes, test that there is a "pull"
on the flue by placing a smoke match,
cigarette or similar device which gives off
smoke, on the edge of the draft hood. See
diagrams.
Diagram 3
Note:
The door latch may require adjustment as the door gasket material
compresses after a few fires and
after glass replacement. Turn the
latch catch inward or outward to
loosen or tighten.

PILOT ADJUSTMENT
AERATION
ADJUSTMENT
Periodically check the pilot flames. Correct
flame pattern has three strong blue flames: 1
flowing around the thermopile and 1 around the
thermocouple, and 1 flowing across the rear of
the burner (it does not have to be touching the
burner).
The burner aeration is factory set but may need
adjusting due to either the local gas supply or
altitude.

louvers are removed.
NORMAL OPERATING
SOUNDS OF
GAS APPLIANCES
It is possible that you will hear some sounds
from your gas appliance. This is perfectly normal
due to the fact that there are various gauges
and types of steel used within your appliance.
Listed below are some examples. All are normal
operating sounds and should not be considered
as defects in your appliance.
Blower:
Regency® gas appliances use high tech blowers
to push heated air farther into the room. It is not
unusual for the fan to make a "whirring" sound
when ON. This sound will increase or decrease
in volume depending on the speed setting of
your fan speed control.
Burner Tray:
The burner tray is positioned directly under the
burner tube(s) and logs and is made of a different gauge material from the rest of the firebox
and body. Therefore, the varying thicknesses of
steel will expand and contract at slightly different
rates which can cause "ticking" and "cracking"
sounds. You should also be aware that as there
are temperature changes within the unit these
sounds will likely re-occur. Again, this is normal
for steel fireboxes.
Top View of pilot flame
Incorrect flame pattern will have small, probably
yellow flames, not coming into proper contact
with the rear of the burner or thermopile.
To adjust the aeration: use the allen key to turn
the turning gear which will adjust the air shutter.
Open the air shutter for a blue flame or close it
for a yellower flame.
Blower Thermodisc:
When this thermally activated switch turns ON
it will create a small "clicking" sound. This is the
switch contacts closing and is normal.
Pilot Flame:
While the pilot flame is on it can make a very
slight "whisper" sound.
Gas Control Valve:
As the gas control valve turns ON and OFF, a
dull clicking sound may be audible, this is normal
operation of a gas regulator or valve.

Different types and thicknesses of steel will
expand and contract at different rates resulting
in some "cracking" and "ticking" sounds will be
heard throughout the cycling process.
Clockwise to open,
counter-clockwise to close.
Caution: Carbon will be produced if the air
shutter is closed too much.
Note: Any damage due to carboning resulting from improperly setting the aeration controls is NOT covered under

MAINTENANCE
MAINTENANCE
INSTRUCTIONS
1) Always shut the valve off before cleaning.
For relighting, refer to lighting instructions.
Keep the burner and control compartment
clean by brushing and vacuuming at least
once a year. When cleaning the logs, use
a soft clean brush as the logs are fragile
and easily damaged.
2) Clean glass (never when unit is hot), appliance, louvers, and door with a damp cloth.
Never use an abrasive cleaner. The gold
louvers (and optional gold door) may be
scratched if abrasives are used to clean
them.
The heater is finished in a heat resistant
paint and should only be refinished with
heat resistant paint (not with wall paint).
Regency® uses StoveBright Paint - Metallic
Black #6309.
3) Make a periodic check of burner for proper
position and condition. Visually check the
flame of the burner periodically, making sure
the flames are steady; not lifting or floating.
If there is a problem, call a qualified service
person.
4) The appliance and venting system must be
inspected before use, and at least annually,
by a qualified field service person, to ensure
that the flow of combustion and ventilation
air is not obstructed.
During the annual service call, the burners
should be removed from the burner tray
and cleaned. Replace the embers - do not
block the pilot or burner ports.
5) Keep the area near the appliance clear and
free from combustible materials, gasoline
and other flammable
vapours and liquids.
WARNING: CHILDREN AND
ADULTS SHOULD BE ALERTED

GLASS REPLACEMENT
Your Regency® stove is supplied with high
temperature, 5 mm Neoceram ceramic glass
that will withstand the highest heat that your
unit will produce. In the event that you break
your glass, purchase your replacement from an
authorized Regency® dealer only, and follow the
step-by-step instructions for replacement. Never
operate your unit with broken glass.
WARNING: Do not operate appliance with
the glass front removed, cracked or broken.
Replacement of the glass should be done by
a licensed or qualified service person.
MITRED DOOR
Removing Glass:
LOG REPLACEMENT
The unit should never be used with broken logs.
Turn off the gas valve and allow the unit to cool
before opening door to carefully remove the
logs. The pilot light generates enough heat to
burn someone. If for any reason a log should
need replacement, you must use the proper
replacement log. The position of these logs
must be as shown in the diagram under Log
Installation.
Note:
Wearing gloves will protect your
hands while handling glass.
1) Remove the door from the unit and place
on a soft surface to prevent scratching.
2) Pull out the door gasket.
3) Remove the 24 nuts holding the glass
retainers in place. Do not remove the nuts
underneath the retainers.
Note: Improper positioning of logs may create carbon build-up and will alter
the unit’s performance which is not
covered under warranty.
DOOR AND GLASS
GASKET
If the door gasket requires replacement use
7/8" diameter oval door gasket (Part # 650-920).
The glass requires 5/8" flat glass gasket. See
your Regency® dealer.
GOLD-PLATED DOORS
The 24 carat gold plated finish on the door
requires little maintenance, and need only
be cleaned with a damp cloth. DO NOT use
abrasive materials or chemical cleaners, as
they may harm the finish and will void the
warranty. Clean any fingerprints off before
turning the unit on.
4) Remove the door catch plate.
5) Remove glass retainers on sides first (3 each
side) then remove two center retainers.
Note: Center glass retainers are glued to
center glass.
6) Remove glass from extrusions. When removing center glass, leave white insulation in
place.

access to the fan is through the access panel
on the rear wall of the firebox.
Note: The unit MUST NOT be operated
without the fan access panel securely
in place and correctly sealed.
