INSTALLATION
Regency Inserts are constructed with the highest
quality materials and assembled under strict quality
control procedures that ensure years of trouble free
and reliable performance.
CHIMNEY
SPECIFICATIONS
It is important that you read this manual thoroughly
and fully understand the installation and operating
procedures. Failure to follow instructions may result
in property damage, bodily injury or even death. The
more you understand the way your Regency Insert
operates, the more enjoyment you will experience
from knowing that your unit is operating at peak
performance.
Before installing, check and clean your chimney
system thoroughly. If in doubt about its condition,
seek professional advice. Your Regency Insert is
designed for installation into a masonry fireplace
that is constructed in accordance with the requirements of "The Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces,
Vents, and Solid Fuel Burning Appliance", N.F.P.A.
211, the National Building Code of Canada, or the
applicable local code requirements.
BEFORE INSTALLING
YOUR INSERT
The appliance, when installed, must be electrically
grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the
absence of local codes, with the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, or the Canadian Electrical
code, CSA C22.1.
Note: The CI1200 does not include a blower and
one cannot be added to this appliance. If a blower
is required, you must purchase the CI1250 which
comes with a standard blower. The CI1250 has
an increased height to accommodate the blower.
Regency Inserts are designed to use either a 5.5"
or 6" (152mm) flue.
1) Read all instructions before installing and using your fireplace insert. Install and use only
in accordance with manufacturer’s installation
and operating instructions.
2) Check your local building codes - Building
Inspection Department. You may require
a permit before installing your insert. Be
aware that local codes and regulations may
override some items in the manual.
WARNING: Careless installation is the major cause of safety hazard. Check all local
building and safety codes before installation
of unit.
3) Notify your home insurance company that you
plan to install a fireplace insert.
4) Your fireplace insert is heavy and requires two
or more people to move it safely. The insert and
surrounding structure can be badly damaged
by mishandling.
5) If your existing fireplace damper control will
become inaccessible once you have installed
your Regency Insert, you should either remove
or secure it in the open position.
6) Inspect your fireplace and chimney prior to
installing your insert to determine that it is free
from cracks, loose mortar or other signs of
damage. If repairs are required, they should
be completed before installing your insert. Do
not remove bricks or mortar from your masonry
fireplace.
This insert must be connected to a code-approved
masonry chimney or listed factory-built fireplace
chimney with a direct flue connector into the first
chimney liner section.
Requirements for Installing
Solid-fuel Inserts in Factory-built
Fireplaces.
6) Alteration of the fireplace in any manner is not
permitted with the following exceptions;
a. external trim pieces which do not affect the
operation of the fireplace may be removed
providing they can be stored on or within
the fireplace for re-assembly if the insert is
removed.
b. the chimney damper may be removed to
install the chimney liner.
7) Circulating air chambers (i.e. in a steel fireplace liner or metal heat circulator) shall not
be blocked.
8) Means must be provided for removal of the
insert to clean the chimney flue.
9) Inserts that project in front of the fireplace must
be supplied with appropriate supporting means.
10) Installer must mechanically attach the supplied
label to the inside of the firebox of the fireplace
into which the insert is installed.
"WARNING: This fireplace has been
converted for use with a wood insert only and
cannot be used for burning wood or solid fuels
unless all original parts have been replaced,
and the fireplace re-approved by the authority
having jurisdiction."
1) The insert must be tested and meet the requirements of UL 1482 (U.S.) and or ULC S628
(Canada) when tested in a masonry fireplace
built per ULC S628.
2) The factory-built fireplace must be listed per
UL 127 or ULC S610.
3) Clearances obtained from the masonry fireplace
tests are also relevant for installation in factorybuilt fireplaces.
4) Installation must include a full height listed
chimney liner type HT requirements (2100
degree F.) per UL 1777 (U.S.) or ULC S635
(Canada). The liner must be securely attached
to the insert flue collar and the chimney top.
5) Means must be provided to prevent room air
passage to the chimney cavity of the fireplace.
This may be accomplished by sealing the
damper area around the chimney liner, or
sealing the fireplace front.

** A non-combustible mantel may be installed at a lower height if the framing is made of metal studs covered with a non-combustible board.
*** Mantel Depth, Maximum of 10" (254mm).
Floor Protection
B
Please check to ensure that your floor protection
and hearth will meet the standards for clearance to
combustibles. Your hearth extension must be made
from a non-combustible material.
Thermal floor protection is not required if the unit is
raised 3.5" minimum (measured from the bottom of
the stove). However, standard ember floor protection is required. It will need to be non-combustible
material that covers 16" (406mm) in the US and
18" (450mm) in Canada to the front of the unit
and 8" (200mm)in Canada, 6" (152mm)in the US
to the sides.
If the unit is not raised, thermal floor protection
required is R value of 1.1 or greater.

HOW TO DETERMINE IF ALTERNATE
FLOOR PROTECTION MATERIALS ARE ACCEPTABLE
The specified floor protector should be 3/8" (18mm)
thick material with a K - factor of 0.84.
The proposed alternative is 4" (100mm) brick with
a C-factor of 1.25 over 1/8" (3mm) mineral board
with a K-factor of 0.29.
Step (a):
Use formula above to convert specification to
R-value.
R = 1/k x T = 1/0.84 x .75 = 0.893.
Step (b):
Calculate R of proposed system.
4" brick of C = 1.25, therefore
Rbrick = 1/C = 1/1.25 = 0.80
1/8" mineral board of k = 0.29, therefore
Rmin.bd. = 1/0.29 x 0.125 = 0.431
Total R = Rbrick + Rmineral board =
0.8 + 0.431 = 1.231.
Step (c):
Compare proposed system R of 1.231 to specified R of 0.893. Since proposed system R is
greater than required, the system is acceptable.

INSTALLATION
INSTALLING YOUR INSERT
STOP! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
CAST COMPONENTS ARE VERY FRAGILE.
USE EXTREME CARE WHEN HANDLING.
Your insert is very heavy and will require two or three people to move
it into position.
When handling cast parts, please handle with care as they can be damaged.
1) Open door to a 45° angle
2) Holding door firmly from top and bottom - lift door up and off to remove.
3) Lift the unit up onto the Hearth and slide into the fireplace opening. Be sure
to leave the unit out at least 3 to 4 inches in order to make the necessary
flue connections and to install the fan and faceplate.
Be sure to protect your hearth extension during the installation, ie.
with a heavy blanket.
NOTE: You will be required to purchase either the standard or offset 6" diameter (152mm) flue adaptor that is best suited for the specific installation.
List of Tools needed;
- Pull Rod (included with insert)
- 1/2” socket / ratchet
- 3/8 open face wrench
4) Install flex liner into existing chimney as per liner manufacturer’s specifications. See diagram 1.
NOTE: Door is heavy.
5) Install the required flue adaptor onto the end of the flex liner. Secure the
adaptor using 3 screws - 1 on the front, left and right side as shown in
diagram 2.
Alignment of the flue adaptor can be critical during the install, it is recommended that the flex liner be left as compressed as possible. Before
inserting the unit the adaptor should hang, when level, slightly above the
required height.
NOTE: For Masonry installation make sure that the firebox is level with
the hearth using non-combustible materials and no more than 1/2 to 1
inch of the levelling bolt.

INSTALLATION
6) Install the unit by first setting the rear of the unit into the fireplace. See
diagram 3. Ensure that the unit is centered in the existing fireplace
and lined up with the flue adaptor.
10) Ensure that the unit is still level.
11) To complete the installation and to ensure a secure fit and connection of
the flue adaptor to the insert, it is essential that the two bolts, flat washers and lock washers (supplied with packaged manual) be installed and
tightened using a 1/2" socket as shown in diagram 6. This prevents the
possibility of creosote drip and exhaust gas leakage.
Diagram 3
7) Slide the unit back until the flue adaptor is slightly engaged.
8) At this point it is recommended to level the unit and ensure that the leveling
bolts rest on the surface of the fireplace. This will keep the adaptor from
binding as the unit is slid into position.
9) Insert the provided pull rod through the hole in the top center of the unit.
Secure the threaded end into the flue adaptor as shown in diagram 4. While
sliding the unit into place pull on the rod to ensure that the flue adaptor is

INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION INTO A
MASONRY FIREPLACE
When referencing installation or connection to
masonry fireplaces or chimneys, the masonry
construction must or shall be code complying.
The insert must be installed as per the requirements
of your local inspection authority. Three methods
of flue connection are acceptable in most areas,
these include:
1) Positive flue connection, where a large blocking
plate and a short connector pipe is used.
2) Direct flue connection, where a smaller blocking
plate and a connector pipe to the first flue liner
tile is used.
3) Full flue liner, where a stainless steel rigid or
flexible liner pipe is routed from the insert outlet
collar to the top of the chimney.
Regency highly recommends the use of a full liner
as the safest installation and provides the most
optimum performance. Your retailer should be able
to help you decide which system would be the best
for your application.
In Canada this fireplace insert must be installed with a continuous chimney liner of 5.5"
or 6" diameter extending from the fireplace
insert to the top of the chimney. The chimney
liner must conform to the Class 3 requirements of CAN/ULC-S635 or CAN/ULC-S640,
Standard for Lining Systems for New Masonry
Chimneys.
Note: A clean-out door is sometimes required,
by your inspector, to be installed when
either the Positive flue connection or
Direct flue connection method is used.
2) Direct Flue
Connection
with Cleanout
5) Measure approximately the alignment of the
flue liner with the position of the smoke outlet
hole on the insert to check for possible offset. If
an offset is required, use the appropriate offset
adaptor in your installation.
The use of one of the connection methods listed
on this page not only increases the safety of your
insert by directing the hot gases up the flue, but will
also help increase the unit's efficiency and decrease
creosote deposits in the chimney.
When a connected flue or liner is in use, the insert
is able to “breathe” better by allowing a greater
draft to be created. The greater draft can decrease
problems such as, difficult start-ups, smoking out
the door, and dirty glass.
INSTALLATION INTO A
FACTORY BUILT
FIREPLACE
1) When installed in a factory built fireplace, a full
stainless steel rigid or flexible flue liner is mandatory, for both safety and performance purposes.
When a flue or liner is in use, the insert is able
to breathe better by allowing a greater draft to
be created. The greater draft can decrease
problems such as, difficult start-ups, smoking
out the door, and dirty glass.
1) Positive Flue
Connection
with Cleanout
4) If the floor of your fireplace is below the level
of the fireplace opening, adjust the insert's
levelling bolts to accommodate the difference.
When additional shimming is required, use
non-combustible masonry or steel shims.
6) Once the above items have been checked, slide
your insert into position after first positioning
and securing the flue liner to the offset adaptor.
Attach the rod to the adaptor and slide the
adaptor onto the unit as the unit is slid into
position. Ensure a positive connection.
Secure the adaptor to the unit by using 2 bolts,
flat washers, lock washers and one screw in
the front.
Re-install raincap at completion of installation.
2) In order to position the flue liner, the existing
rain cap must be removed from your chimney
system. In most cases the flue damper should
also be removed to allow passage of the liner.
3) In most cases opening the existing spark screens
fully should give enough room for the insert

DRAFT CONTROL
BRICK FLUE BAFFLE &
SECONDARY AIR TUBE
INSTALLATION
The flue baffle system located in the upper area
of the firebox is removable to make cleaning your
chimney system easier. The brick baffles must be
installed prior to your first fire. Smoke spillage
and draft problems may occur if the baffles
are improperly positioned. Check the position of
the brick baffles on a regular basis as they can be
dislodged if too much fuel is forced into the firebox.
Before establishing your first fire, it is important that
you fully understand the operation of draft control.
Side View
3) Tilt the left baffle brick up on top of the side
channel and it will leave enough room to position the right baffle brick in the same manner
as Step 1) above. Then reposition the left baffle
brick flat on the air tube.
Left - Open
Front View
4) Important: push both baffle bricks so they
are tight against the side walls and to the
back.
1) If the two air tubes are installed continue on
to Step 2), if not, follow the instructions below.
Install the air tube into the holes in the side
channels. The notch goes on the right hand
side with the air holes facing toward the door.
Slide the tube into the left hand side, as far as
possible and then bring it back into the hole on
the right hand side until it locks into position.
If the tube will not slide in easily simply use a
pair of vise grips or pliers and tap it into place
with a hammer. A tighter fit will ensure the tube
will not move when the unit is burning.
2) Slide the left baffle brick over the front air tube
and then slide it back over the rear air tube.
Right - Closed
The draft control rod is on the left side of the Insert
and it controls the intensity of the fire by increasing
or decreasing the amount of air allowed into the
firebox. To increase the draft, slide the rod to the left
and to decrease the draft, slide the rod to the right.
As well as a primary and glass wash air system, the
unit has a full secondary draft system that allows
air to the induction ports at the top of the firebox,
just below the flue baffle.
Front View
Note: When getting the chimney cleaned, remove the baffle bricks for access to the
flue, then replace them when cleaning is
completed.
FIREBRICK ASSEMBLY
Firebrick is included to extend the life of your insert
and radiate heat more evenly. Check to see that
all firebricks are in their correct positions and have
not become misaligned during shipping.

Regency CI1200 / CI1250 Wood Cast Insert
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: To build a fire in ignorance or to
disregard the information contained in this
section can cause serious permanent damage
to the unit and void your warranty.
FIRST FIRE
When your installation is completed and inspected,
you are ready for your first fire.
1) Open draft control fully.
2) Open firebox door and build a small fire using
paper and dry kindling, wait a few minutes for
a good updraft in the flue to establish the fire.
Leaving the door slightly open will help your
fire start more rapidly.
CAUTION: Never leave unit unattended
if door is left open. This procedure is for
fire start-up only, as unit may over-heat if
door is left open for too long.
3) With the draft still in the fully open position, add
two or three seasoned logs to your fire. Form
a trench in the ash bed to allow air to reach the
rear of the firebox prior to closing the door.
4) After about 15 to 20 minutes, when your wood
has begun to burn strongly, adjust your draft
control down to keep the fire at a moderate
level.
WARNING: Never build a roaring fire in a
cold stove. Always warm your stove up
slowly!
5) Once a bed of coals has been established, you
may adjust the draft control to a low setting to
operate the unit in its most efficient mode.
10) For those units installed at higher elevations or
into sub-standard masonry fireplaces, drafting
problems may occur. Consult an experienced
dealer or mason on methods of increasing your
draft.
11) Some cracking and popping noises may be
experienced during the heating up process.
These noises will be minimal when your unit
reaches temperature.
12) Before opening your door to reload, open draft
fully for approximately 10 to 15 seconds until
fire has been re-established. This will minimize
any smoking.
13) All fuel burning appliances consume oxygen
during operation. It is important that you supply
a source of fresh air to your unit while burning.
A slightly opened window is sufficient for this
purpose.
CAUTION: If the body of your unit starts
to glow you are overfiring. Stop loading
fuel immediately and close the draft control
until the glow has completely subsided.
14) Green or wet wood is not recommended for
your unit. If you must add wet or green fuel,
open the draft control fully until all moisture has
been dispersed by the intense fire. Once all
moisture has been removed, the draft control
may be adjusted to maintain the fire.
15) If you have been burning your insert on a low
draft, use caution when opening the door. After
opening the damper, open the door a crack, and
allow the fire to adjust before fully opening the
door.
16) The controls of your unit should not be altered
to increase firing for any reason.
6) During the first couple of hours, keep the combustion rate at a moderate level and avoid a
large fire until the paint is cured. Only then can
you operate the insert at its maximum setting,
and only after the metal has been warmed.
7) For the first few hours, the insert will give off an
odour from the paint. This is to be expected as
the high temperature paint becomes seasoned.
Windows and/or doors should be left open to
provide adequate ventilation while this temporary condition exists. Burning the insert at a
very high temperature the first few times may
damage the paint. Burn fires at a moderate
level the first few days.
8) Do not place anything on the insert top during
the curing process. This may result in damage
to your paint finish.
9) During the first few hours it may be more difficult
to start the fire. As you dry out your fire brick
and your masonry flue (if applicable), your draft
will increase.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
FAN OPERATION
CORD REVERSAL
(CS1250 ONLY)
The fan is to be operated only with the draft control rod pulled out at least
1/2" from the fully closed position. The fan is not to be operated when
the draft control rod is in the closed position (pushed in). The fully closed
position is the low burn setting.
The fan must not be turned on until a fire has been burning for at least 30
minutes. Also note it is recommended that the fan be turned off before each
fuel loading and again wait for 30 minutes before the fan is turned on again.
This is too allow the stove to reach it's optimum temperature.
The fan cord comes out from the left hand side of the unit. if it is necessary
to have the cord coming from the right side - follow these steps:
1) Remove the lower surround faceplate section - by removing 2 bolts.
2) Feed the cord along the bottom of the inside of the casting as shown below.
To operate fan automatically, push switch on the right side of fan housing to
"Auto" and second switch, on the left to either "High" or "Low" for fan speed.
The automatic temperature sensor will engage the blower when the unit is at
temperature and will shut off the blower once the fire has gone out and the
unit has cooled to below a useful heat output range.
To manually operate the fan system, push the first switch to "Man" and second
switch to either "high" or "Low". This will bypass the sensing device and allow
full control of the fan. Switching from "Auto" to "Manual" or "High" to "Low"
may be done at any time.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
ASH DISPOSAL
During constant use, ashes should be removed
every few days. Please take care to prevent the
build-up of ash around the start-up air housing
located inside the firebox.
DO NOT ALLOW ASHES TO BUILD UP TO THE
LOADING DOORS.
Only remove ashes when the fire has died down.
Even then, expect to find a few hot embers. Always
leave 1 to 2 inches of ash in the bottom of the
firebox. This helps in easier starting and a more
uniform burn of your fire.
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a
tight fitting lid. The closed container of ashes should
be placed on a noncombustible floor or on the
ground, well away from all combustible materials,
pending final disposal. If the ashes are disposed
of by burial in soil or otherwise locally dispersed,
they should be retained in the closed container until
all cinders have thoroughly cooled. Other waste
should not be placed in the ash container.
SOME SAFETY
GUIDELINES
1) Never use gasoline, gasoline type lantern fuels,
kerosene, charcoal lighter fuel, or similar liquids
or chemicals to start or ‘freshen up’ a fire in your
insert. Keep all such liquids well away from the
heater while it is in use.
2) Never use alternate fuels such as charcoal
that have the possibility of generating carbon
monoxide.
Overfiring can cause extensive damage to your
stove including warpage and premature steel
corrosion. Overfiring will void your warranty.
8) Do not permit creosote or soot buildup in the
chimney system. Check and clean chimney at
regular intervals.
9) Your Regency Insert can be very hot. You
may be seriously burned if you touch the insert
while it is operating. Warn children of the burn
hazard. Keep furniture and clothing away.
10) The insert consumes air while operating, provide adequate ventilation with an air duct or
open a window while the insert is in use.
11) Do not use grates, irons or other methods for
supporting fuel. Burn directly on the bricks.
12) Open the draft control fully for 10 to 15 seconds
prior to slowly opening the door when refuelling
the fire.
13) Do not connect your unit to any air distribution
duct.
14) Your insert should burn dry, standard firewood
only. The use of “mill ends” is discouraged as
this fuel can easily overheat your insert. Evidence of excessive overheating will void your
warranty. As well, a large portion of sawmill
waste is chemically treated lumber, which is illegal to burn in many areas. Chemically treated
fire logs also must not be burned in your insert.
15) Do not store any fuel closer than 2 feet from
your unit.
16) Do not burn salt drift wood as it will corrode
your unit and void the warranty.
3) Keep the door closed during operation and
maintain all seals in good condition.
17) Do not strike or slam the glass door shut as
this may cause the glass to break.
4) Do not burn large quantities of paper in your
insert.
18) Do not operate the unit if the glass is broken or
missing. Do not operate the unit if the gasketing is worn out and not sealing the door or the
glass.
5) Do not burn garbage or flammable fluids.
6) If you have smoke detectors, prevent smoke
spillage as this may set off a false alarm.
7) Do not overfire your insert. If the insert or its
flue baffle begin to glow, you are overfiring.
Stop adding fuel and close the draft control.
Regency CI1200 / CI1250 Wood Cast Insert
It is very important to carefully maintain your insert,
including burning seasoned wood and maintaining a clean stove and chimney system. Have the
chimney cleaned before the burning season and as
necessary during the season, as creosote deposits
may build up rapidly. Moving parts of your insert
require no lubrication.
CREOSOTE
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and
other organic vapors, which form creosote when
combined with moisture. The creosote vapors
condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a
slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue
accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this
creosote can make an extremely hot fire.
Removal for Cleaning etc.
Removal of your insert for cleaning purposes is
usually not required if a proper installation has been
done. In the event that removal is required, be sure
not to damage any parts needed for re-installation.
In most cases removal and replacement of the
baffle system should allow full access for cleaning.
WARNING: Things to remember in case
of chimney fire:
1) Close draft control
2) Call the Fire Department
Ways to Prevent and
Keep Unit Free of Creosote
1) Burn insert with draft control wide open for
about 15 minutes every morning during burning season. This helps to prevent creosote
deposits within the heating system.
2) Burn insert with draft control wide open for about
10 - 15 minutes every time you add fresh wood.
This allows the wood to achieve the charcoal
stage faster and burns up any wood vapors
which might otherwise be deposited within the
system.
3) Only burn seasoned wood! Avoid burning
wet or green wood. Seasoned wood has been
dried at least one year.
4) A small hot fire is preferable to a large smouldering one that can deposit creosote within the
system.
5) Check the chimney at least twice a month during
the burning season for creosote build-up.
6) Have chimney system and unit cleaned by
competent chimney sweeps twice a year during
the first year of use and at least once a year
thereafter or when needed.

MAINTENANCE
DOOR GASKET
GLASS REPLACEMENT
If the door gasket requires replacement, 7/8" diameter material must be used.
A proper high temperature gasket adhesive is required. A gasket repair kit,
Part # 846-570 is available from your local Regency dealer.
Allow the stove to cool before removing or replacing glass. Remove the door
from the stove and remove the glass retainer. Use caution when removing
broken glass to avoid injury. When placing the replacement glass in the door,
make sure that the glass gasketing will properly seal your unit. Replace the
retainer, it should rest on the gasket not the glass, and tighten securely with a
glass clips and screws. Do not wrench down on the glass as this may cause
breakage.
GLASS CLEANING
Only clean your glass window when it is cool. Your local retailer can supply
you with special glass cleaner if plain water and a soft cloth does not remove
all deposits.
Your Regency Insert is supplied with 5mm Neoceram ceramic glass that will
withstand the highest heat that your unit will produce. In the event that you
break your glass by impact- purchase replacement glass (940-366/P) from an
authorized Regency dealer only. Follow the instructions to replace.

Assemble handle by:
a) Placing lock washer and split lock washer over hex head bolt.
b) Place hex head bolt into handle.
c) Place spacer over hex head bolt threads.
d) Screw handle into door latch.
IMPORTANT:
These fans collect a lot of dust from within your home. Ensure you
maintain these fan motors on a regular basis by vacuuming
the fan blades and housing using a soft brush nozzle.
DOOR CATCH
ADJUSTMENT
The door catch may require adjustment as the door gasket material compresses
after a few fires. Removal of the spacer washer, shown in the diagram below,
will allow the catch to be moved closer to the door frame, causing a tighter

WARRANTY
Regency Fireplace Products are designed with reliability and simplicity in mind. In addition, our internal Quality Assurance Team carefully inspects
each unit thoroughly before it leaves our door. FPI Fireplace Products International Ltd. is pleased to extend this limited lifetime warranty to the
original purchaser of a Regency Product. This warranty is not transferable.
The Warranty: Lifetime
Covered under the agreement are the following components:
Firebox, ceramic baffle, vermiculite baffle, steel baffles (H2100), convector airmate, castings, ashdrawer, glass (thermal breakage), gold plating (against
defective manufacture), airtubes (against warpage) and door handles.
The above will be covered for parts and subsidized labour for the first five years and parts only thereafter with the exception of the fireboxes (see below).
FPI is not liable for freight or labor on any wood burning appliance replaced in field.
Electrical components such as blowers, switches and thermodisc's are covered for two years parts and one year subsidized labour* from date of purchase.
Repair/replacement parts purchased by the consumer from FPI after the original coverage has expired on the unit will carry a 90 day warranty, valid with a
receipt only. Any item shown to be defective will be repaired or replaced at our discretion. No labor coverage is included with these parts.
Conditions:
Any part or parts of this unit which in our judgement show evidence of such defects will be repaired or replaced at FPI's option, through an accredited distributor or agent provided that the defective part be returned to the distributor or agent Transportation Prepaid, if requested.
It is the general practice of FPI to charge for larger, higher priced replacement parts and issue credit once the replaced component has been returned to FPI
and evaluated for manufacturer defect.
The authorized selling dealer is responsible for all in-field service work carried out on your Regency product. FPI will not be liable for results or costs of
workmanship from unauthorized service persons or dealers.
At all times FPI reserves the right to inspect product in the field which is claimed to be defective.
All claims must be submitted to FPI by authorized selling dealers. It is essential that all submitted claims provide all of the necessary information including
customer name, purchase date, serial #, type of unit, problem, and part or parts requested, without this information the warranty will be invalid.
Exclusions:
This limited Lifetime Warranty does not extend to or include paint, door or glass gasketing, firebrick or trim. It does not cover installation and operational related
problems such as over-firing, use of corrosive driftwood, downdrafts or spillage caused by environmental conditions, nearby trees, buildings, hilltops, mountains,
inadequate venting or ventilation, excessive offsets, negative air pressures caused by mechanical systems such as furnaces, fans, clothes dryers etc.
At no time will FPI be liable for any consequential damages which exceed the purchase price of the unit. FPI has no obligation to enhance or modify any unit
once manufactured. ie. as products evolve, field modifications or upgrades will not be performed.
FPI will not be liable for travel costs for service work.
Installation and environmental problems are not the responsibility of the manufacturer and therefore are not covered under the terms of this warranty
policy.
Any unit which shows signs of neglect or misuse is not covered under the terms of this warranty policy.
The warranty will not extend to any part which has been tampered with or altered in any way, or in our judgment has been subject to misuse.
Freight damage to stoves and replacement parts is not covered by warranty and is subject to a claim against the freight carrier by the dealer.
FPI will not be liable for acts of God, or acts of terrorism, which cause malfunction of the appliance.
Performance problems due to operator error will not be covered by this warranty policy.
Products made or provided by other manufacturers and used in conjunction with the operation of this appliance without prior authorization from FPI, may
nullify your warranty on this product.
* Subsidy according to job scale as predetermined by FPI.
