INSERT STOVE INSTALLATION & OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
PRE-INSTALLATION
NOTE: Please note that it is a legal requirement
under England & Wales Building Regulations that
the installation of the stove is either carried out
under Local Authority Building Control approval or
is installed by a Competent Person registered with
a Government approved Competent Persons
Scheme. HETAS Ltd operate such a Scheme and
a listing of their Registered Competent Persons
can be found on their website at www.hetas.co.uk.
After removing the stove from the packaging, open
the fire door and remove the loose packing. Prior to
installation all the internal components of the stove
are removed to gain access to fixings and to make it
lighter for installation.
Remove the refractory fire bricks, these bricks are
loose and just need to be lifted clear of the grate
support plate before they can be removed.
GENERAL
To remove the loose baffle, lift the front edge until it
hits the top and then slide it forward. Then drop the
rear edge and the baffle will slide down. To remove
the fixed baffle, loosen the two screws and slide it
forwards, it will then drop down.
When installing, operating and maintaining your
stove respect basic standards of fire safety. Read
these instructions carefully before commencing the
installation. Failure to do so may result in damage to
persons or property. Save these instructions for
future reference.
To remove the cast iron liners, lift them clear of the
grate support plate and then move the front edge of
the casting towards the middle of the stove, and
clear of the back wall of the stove, then tilt the casting so that it can be removed diagonally through the
opening. Remove the flue spigot and gasket by
removing the four bolts.
Special care must be taken when installing the stove
such that the requirements of the Health & Safety at
Work Act are met.
Handling
Adequate facilities must be available for loading,
unloading and site handling.
Next, remove the grate by pushing it from underneath, the riddling bar is not fixed to the grate. This
will allow access to four M6 fixings which will attach
the stove to the outer casing. Remove the 4 fixings,
allowing the insert stove to be removed from the
external casing.
Fire Cement
Some types of fire cement are caustic and should
not be allowed to come into contact with the skin. In
case of contact with the skin wash immediately with
plenty of water.
CHIMNEY
Asbestos
This stove contains no asbestos. If there is a possibility of disturbing any asbestos in the course of
installation then please seek guidance and use
appropriate protective equipment.
THIS PRODUCT IS SUITABLE FOR CHIMNEY
INSTALLATION ONLY.
The stove is a radiant room heater and must be connected to a chimney of the proper size and type. The
chimney must have a cross sectional area of at least
124cm2 or a diameter of at least 150mm. Never connect to a smaller size chimney. Do not connect to a
chimney serving another appliance. Minimum chimney height 4.5 meters from floor on which stove is
installed.
Metal Parts
When installing or servicing this stove care should
be taken to avoid the possibility of personal injury.
IMPORTANT WARNING: This stove must not be
installed into a chimney that serves any other
heating appliance. There must not be an extractor fan fitted in the same room as the stove as
this can cause the stove to emit fumes into the
room.
It is recommended that a flue liner of diameter
150mm be used to line the chimney, the liner should
be approved for use with solid fuel. See Fig. 1.
The installation must be completed in
accordance with current National and
European Standards and Local Codes. It
should be noted that the requirements and
these publications may be superseded during
the life of this manual.
It is permitted to connect using a closure plate and a
connection piece from the stove to the closure plate
(See Fig 2), provided that the chimney is of sound
construction with no leaks or cracks, a clay flue liner
has been used that can withstand up to 1000oC, the
clay liner has a diameter no greater than 200mm.
2
ALL FLUE INSTALLATIONS ARE THE
RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INSTALLER
Fig 2
Any existing chimney must be clear of obstruction
and have been swept clean immediately before
installation of the stove. If the stove is fitted in place
of an open fire then the chimney should be swept
one month after installation to clear any soot falls
which may have occurred due to the difference in
combustion between the stove and the open fire.
For guidance when installing new chimney systems
or relining existing chimneys please refer to BS EN
15287:2007.
The stove must be connected to a chimney with a
minimum continuous draught of 12 Pascal’s (.05”
WG). Poor draught conditions will result in poor performance.
CO ALARMS:Building regulations require that when ever a
new or replacement fixed solid fuel or wood/biomass appliance is installed in a dwelling a carbon monoxide alarm must be fitted in the same
room as the appliance. Further guidance on the
installation of the carbon monoxide alarm is
available in BS EN 50202:2012 and from the
alarm manufacturer's instructions.
FITTING INSTRUCTIONS
Step 1
Prepare the fireplace area with fireback or millner
brick removal. Ensure the opening is suitable for fitting of the insert stove opening required, i.e. remove
fire surround trim if fitted. See Fig 3.
Provision of an alarm must not be considered a
substitute for either installing the appliance correctly or ensuring regular servicing and maintenance of the appliance and chimney system.
240 - 320mm
405mm - 455mm
550mm - 575mm

Step 8
Then using the M6 screws secure the stove to the
convection chamber. Push the insert stove against
the fireplace before fully tightening these bolts.
Step 4
Drop the flexi flue liner down through the chimney,
connect the 5 - 6” flue pipe adaptor and the rigid pipe
section to the liner (see Fig.5).
Step 9
Push the rigid pipe back up through the flue outlet
and fix the flue spigot into position using the M8 nuts
provided. It may be necessary to cut a prop to hold
the spigot in place while the fixings are being
attached.
Step 5
Mark the drill location and drill the holes using a
5.5mm drill bit. Fix the casing to the floor using the
self tapping screws provided. (Optional, screw fix
ashlip, see Fig 7).
Step 10
Complete the installation of the flexi line at the top of
the chimney in accordance with the manufacturers
instructions.
Step 6
Lift the stove into the external casing. Remove all
internal parts as per pre-assembly instructions prior
to lifting it. The stove can be lifted into the casing
approximately 75mm first and then it can be pushed
into the final position while taking care to lift the front
edge to preserve the hearth.
Step 11
Fit the individual components in the following order:
1. Grate Support
2. Grate
3. Ashlip (Optional - Use if Required)
4. Cast Iron Side Liners
5. Fixed Baffle
6. Loose Baffle
7. Back Bricks
8. Side Bricks
9. Fire Fence
Step 7
Drop the rigid pipe section into the stove through the
flue outlet opening. Lay the sealing gasket on to the
flue spigot, then fit the flue spigot to the end of the
rigid pipe using the 3 grub screws provided.
(See Fig 5).

1. Grate Support
2. Grate
4. Cast Iron Side Liners 5. Fixed Baffle
4. Cast Iron Side Liners
3. Optional Ashlip
To insert the side liner bring the casting carefully
towards the opening, the bottom edge needs to go
towards the side it will fit to and the top edge goes to
the centre of the stove. With the casting tilted like
this, then the casting should pass through the opening in the front.
6. Loose Baffle
When the casting is in the stove, manoeuvre it into
position by inserting the back edge first then the
front.
7. Back Bricks
8. Side Bricks
9. Fire Fence
5. Fixed Baffle
The baffle fits to the roof of the stove using the two
M6 round head screws. With the screws in place, lift
the baffle into place with the main part of the baffle
to the rear of the stove, then slide the baffle so that
the screws are at the tip of the slots. Tighten the
screws to secure the baffle.
1. Grate Support
Tilt the grate support up on one side and pass it
carefully through the door opening, it should then
rest on three supports approx. 100mm from the floor
of the stove grate.
6. Loose Baffle
Hold the baffle by the ‘L’ shaped end with the fold
turned up. Manoeuvre it diagonally through the door
opening and then drop the rear edge to the rear of
the stove. Lift the ‘L’ shaped edge up over the ‘L’
shape on the side castings.
2. Grate
The grate simply lays into the grate support but care
needs to be taken that the riddling bar will rest in the
middle of the fork.
Move the baffle as far as possible to the front and
top. Then lift the back edge up and allow the baffle
to rest on the top rib on the back and in the ‘L’ shape
on the side castings. Note: The secondary air holes
must be visible underneath the baffle.
3. Fitting Optional Ashlip
The ashlip is only to be used when the stove is floor
mounted. The ashlip must be fully supported underneath by the hearth. The ashlip can be adhered to
the hearth using a suitable adhesive after the stove
has been fitted or alternatively it can be screw fixed
using two screws provided. (See Fig.7).
7 & 8. Side & Back Bricks
Lay the side and back bricks in as shown.
Fig 8
The ashlip is to be pushed into place and has two
lugs which align the ashlip from side to side between
the sides of the external casing.
Fig 7

9. Fire Fence
When calculating combustion air requirements for
this appliance use the following equation: 550mm2
per each kW of rated output above 5 kW should be
provided, where a flue draught stabiliser is used the
total free area shall be increased by 300mm2 for
each kW of rated output. If there is another appliance using air fitted in the same or adjacent room, it
will be necessary to provide an additional air supply.
Lay the fire fence into the slots provided ensuring
that they slope from front to back so that no embers
can fall out through the fire fence.
DOWN DRAUGHTS
However well designed constructed and positioned,
the satisfactory performance of the flue can be
adversely affected by down draught caused by nearby hills, adjacent tall buildings or trees. These can
deflect wind to blow directly down the flue or create
a zone of low pressure over the terminal. A suitable
anti-down draught terminal or cowl will usually effectively combat direct down blow but no cowl is likely
to prevent down draught due to a low pressure zone.
(See Fig.9)
All materials used in the manufacture of air vents
should be such that the vent is dimensionally stable,
corrosion resistant, and no provision for closure.
The effective free area of any vent should be ascertained before installation. The effect of any grills
should be allowed for when determining the effective
free area of any vent.
Air vents direct to the outside of the building should
be located so that any air current produced will not
pass through normally occupied areas of the room.
Fig 9
Direction of wind
An air vent outside the building should not be located less than the dimensions specified within the
Building Regulations and B.S. 8303: Part 1 from any
part of any flue terminal. These air vents must also
be satisfactorily fire proofed as per Building
Regulations and B.S. 8303: Part 1.
Pressure zone
Suction zone
Air vents in internal walls should not communicate
with bedrooms, bedsits, toilets, bathrooms or rooms
containing a shower.
Direction of wind
Air vents traversing cavity walls should include a
continuous duct across the cavity. The duct should
be installed in such a manner as not to impair the
weather resistance of the cavity.
Pressure zone
Joints between air vents and outside walls should be
sealed to prevent the ingress of moisture. Existing
air vents should be of the correct size and unobstructed for the appliance in use. If there is an
extraction fan fitted in adjacent rooms where this
appliance is fitted, additional air vents may be
required to alleviate the possibility of spillage of
products of combustion from the appliance/flue
while the fan is in operation. Refer to B.S. 8303 Part
1.
Suction zone
Direction of wind
Pressure zone
Where such an installation exists, a test for spillage
should be made with the fan or fans and other appliances using air in operation at full rate, (i.e. extraction fans, tumble dryers) with all external doors and
windows closed.
Suction zone
VENTILATION AND COMBUSTION AIR
REQUIREMENTS
This appliance is rated less than 5kW, therefore
there is no mandatory requirements for additional air
unless a flue draught stabiliser is fitted then the air
requirement is 15cm2. However, we suggest that it is
advantageous to provide an air supply into the room
If spillage occurs following the above operation, an
additional air vent of sufficient size to prevent this
occurrence should be installed.

Fig.10
COMMISSIONING & HANDOVER
On completion of the installation allow a suitable
period of time for any fire cement and mortar to dry
out, when a small fire may be lit and checked to
ensure the smoke and fumes are taken from the
stove up the chimney and emitted safely to the
atmosphere. Do not run at full output for at least
24 hours.
On completion of the installation and commissioning
ensure that the operating instructions for the stove
are left with the customer. Ensure to advise the customer on the correct use of the appliance with the
fuels likely to be used on the stove and warn them to
use only the recommended fuels for the stove.
Advise the user what to do should smoke or fumes
be emitted from the stove. The customer should be
warned to use a fire guard to BS 6539 in the presence of children, aged and/or infirm persons
Fig.11
LOCATION
There are several conditions to be considered in
selecting a location for your stove.
A. This product is designed to be installed into a fire
place.
B. Allowances for proper clearances to combustibles.
FLOOR PROTECTION
It is recommended that this appliance is installed on
a solid, level, concrete base, a non combustible
hearth conforming to current Building Regulations
must extend to the front of the appliance.
CLEARANCE TO COMBUSTIBLES
If the mantlepiece protrudes further than 100mm
from the fireplace, then it will be necessary to have
further clearance to the top of the stove. The distance the mantle protrudes past the 100mm should
be added to the clearance.
This appliance must be installed in a recess, the
recess should not contain any combustible materials. Wooden battens and plaster board should not
be used within the clearance to combustibles. The
minimum clearance to combustibles required is
550mm to the top, 350mm to the sides, 550mm
directly to the front and 350mm to any combustible
flooring.
For example, if the mantle protrudes 200mm, the
clearance to the mantle should be 650mm. (See
Figs 10 & 11).
If there is a studded wall surrounding the fireplace as in Fig.10, ensure the clearances in this
Fig are adhered to.

PRIMARY AIR CONTROL SPIN VALVE
Fig.15
When burning manufactured smokeless fuels, the
spin valve located near the bottom of the door, controls the primary air supply to the stove. For maximum heat output and burn rate rotate the spin valve
fully in an anti-clockwise direction. For a minimum
burn rate rotate the spin valve fully in a clockwise
direction until fully closed. For nominal heat output
the spin wheel will need to be open about 2 turns
depending on the draught conditions of the chimney.
You will soon learn the spin valve settings to best
suit your requirements.
Fig.14
RECOMMENDED FUELS
This appliance has been tested using seasoned
wood logs and manufactured smokeless fuels.
Other fuels are commercially available and may give
similar results. Do not use fuels with a Petro-coke
ingredient as this may cause the grate to overheat,
causing damage. Reduced outputs will result when
fuels of lower calorific value are used. All fuels
should be stored under cover and kept as dry as
possible prior to use.
SECONDARY AIR CONTROL - SLIDER
When burning wood, push the secondary air slider
situated on the left hand side of the door to the bottom of the slot. The air control is a slider operation,
push the slider to the top of the slot for fully closed
and to the bottom for fully open.
RE-FUELLING
When re-fuelling with manufactured smokeless fuel
riddle the fire by connecting the grate operating tool
onto the rocker connection located at the bottom
front of the stove. Then gently pull and push the
rocker arm until all dead ash has fallen through into
the ashpan. Before opening the door, open the spin
valve by turning it anti-clockwise, as this will help to
eliminate any smoke or fly ash resident in the combustion chamber. Add fuel to fire, taking care not to
overfill higher than the front firebars. Close fire door
and re-set spin valve to required setting. Do not
operate this appliance with the fire door open. (See
Fig.16)
The control can be gradually moved between fully
open and fully closed for the desired setting. Fully
open will be the hottest setting, as this will provide
the maximum air to the fire and will help to clean the
glass even after it has become sooty. This control
can be used in conjunction with the spin valve but
generally the fire will perform best if the slider is
used when burning wood and the spin valve is used
when burning manufactured smokeless fuels. These
controls are hot when the appliance is in use. Use
the glove provided to operate these controls when
they are hot.
When burning wood the requirement to riddle the
fire is much less. Do not riddle the fire with the spinwheel open but fully open the secondary air control
instead. Remember to reset the controls after refuelling.

MAINTENANCE
SLOW BURNING
CREOSOTE - Formation and Need for Removal
When some fuels are burned slowly, they produce
tar and other organic vapours, which combine with
expelled moisture to form creosote. The creosote
vapours condense in the relatively cool chimney flue
of a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue
accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited creosote makes an extremely hot fire.
To achieve slow burning when burning wood close
the secondary air slide and open a few millimetres
using the tool provided. Slow burning will cause the
window glass to blacken and should not be used for
a long period as it will leave sooty deposits in the
flueways. Opening the air slide will increase the
heat output and will clear the glass.
To obtain slow burning when burning coal, close the
secondary air fully and partially open the spin valve.
CHIMNEY CLEANING
The chimney should be cleaned twice annually. The
chimney can be cleaned through the stove by
remove the fire lining and the baffle. The flue liner
should be cleaned in accordance with manufacturers instructions. Always use a brush with plastic
bristles that is the correct size to reach all areas of
the flue.
DE-ASHING
Never allow the ashpan to overfill as it will cause
damage to the grate. Empty the ashpan before
lighting. Always ensure that ashes have thoroughly
cooled before removing the ashpan. Open the fire
door and remove ashpan using the operating tool.
Close the fire door. When the ash is disposed of,
replace the empty ashpan. (See Fig.17) Do not
leave the fire unattended with the fire door open,
even for a minute.
REMEMBER COAL GASES ARE TOXIC
WARNING - NEVER DISPOSE OF ASH WHEN
STOVE IS LIGHTING.
IMPORTANT - DAMAGE CAN OCCUR TO THE
FIREBED AND GRATE ASSEMBLY IF THE ASHPAN IS NOT CLEANED OUT DAILY AND BEFORE
EACH USE.
10
5. Never allow a build up of ashes in the ash pan,
as this may cause the grate to burn out prematurely.
WARNING NOTE
Properly installed, operated and maintained the
stove will not emit fumes into the dwelling.
Occasional fumes from de-ashing and re-fuelling
may occur. However, persistent fume emission is
potentially dangerous and must not be tolerated. If
fume emission does persist, then the following
immediate action should be taken:
6. Allow adequate air ventilation to ensure plenty
of air for combustion.
7. Do not burn rubbish/house hold plastic.
8. Clean the chimney at least twice a year.
(a) Open doors and windows to ventilate room and
then leave the premises.
(b) Let the fire out.
(c) Check for flue or chimney blockage and clean
if required.
(d) Do not attempt to relight the fire until the cause
of the fume emission has been identified and
corrected. If necessary seek expert advice.
9. Burning soft fuels such as timber and peat will
stain the glass. Regular cleaning will prevent
permanent staining.
10. Keep all combustible materials a safe distance
away from the appliance, please see section for
clearances to combustion.
11. For safety reasons never leave children or the
elderly unaccompanied while stove is in use.
Use a fireguard.
CO ALARM
Your installer should have fitted a CO alarm in the
same room as the appliance. If the alarm sounds
unexpectedly, follow the instructions given under
“Warning Note” above.
12. Avoid contact with appliance when in use as the
stove reaches very high operating temperatures.
The most common cause of fume emission is flueway or chimney blockage. For your own safety
these must be kept clean at all times.
13. This appliance should be regularly maintained
by a competent service engineer. Use only
replacement parts recommended by AGA.
Using unauthorised parts will invalidate
your guarantee and may cause damage or
injury.

are looking forward to many comforts it will provide,
we would like to give you some tips on how to get
the best results from your stove.
14. Do not use an aerosol spray on or near the stove
when it is a light.
AN ODOUR WILL EMIT FROM STOVE ON FIRST
FIRING, WHEN FIRE REACHES MAXIMUM
TEMPERATURE OVER A NUMBER OF HOURS
THIS ODOUR WILL SUBSIDE.
1. We would like if you could take some time to
read the operating instructions/hints, which we
are confident, will be of great benefit to you.
IT IS BEST ADVISED TO OPEN WINDOWS
DURING THIS PERIOD.
2. Do not burn fuel with a high moisture content,
such as damp peat or unseasoned timber.
This will only result in a build up of tar in the
stove and in the chimney and the possibility of a
chimney fire.
THIS ODOUR IS UNPLEASANT BUT NOT TOXIC.
YOU MAY WISH TO VACATE THE ROOM WHILE
THE PAINT CURES.
3. CLEAN THE FLUE-WAYS OF THE STOVE
EVERY WEEK AND ENSURE THAT THERE
ARE NO BLOCKAGES. CHECK FLUEWAYS
BEFORE LIGHTING ESPECIALLY AFTER A
SHUT-DOWN PERIOD. PLEASE REFER TO
MANUAL FOR INSTRUCTIONS.
4. Before loading fresh fuel into the firebox, riddle
fully to remove all ashes this will allow better and
cleaner burning. See Re-Fuelling Section.

4. A plan to deal with a chimney fire as follows:
LIGHTING
a.
b.
Before lighting the stove check with the installer
that the installation work and commissioning
checks described in the installation instructions
have been carried out correctly and that the
chimney has been swept clean, is sound and
free from any obstructions. As part of the stoves
commissioning and handover the installer
should demonstrate how to operate the stove
correctly.
c.
d.
Notify the fire department.
Prepare occupants for immediate evacuation.
Close all openings into the stove.
While awaiting the fire department watch for
ignition to adjacent combustibles from over
head stove pipe or from embers or from
sparks from the chimney.
GLASS
IMPORTANT: The first few fires should be relatively small to permit the refractory to set properly and to season the stove.
1. How to clean:
The glass will clean itself when there is sufficient
heat generated by burning fuel. If a build-up of creosote occurs on the glass it may be due to draft conditions, poor quality fuel or very slow burning for a
long time. Only clean glass when the stove is thoroughly cooled. Clean with a liquid detergent taking
care not to scratch the glass with any coal ash
deposits.
1. Before lighting the stove, ensure that any buildup in the firebox has been removed and that the
ashpan has been emptied.
2. Open the spin valve by turning it anti-clockwise.
Open secondary air control by pulling it down.
These parts will become hot. Use the tool
provided.
2. Glass Replacement:
3. Lay a few crumpled sheets of paper on the grate
and then a few small sticks, kindling or an
approved firelighter. Ignite and close the door.
a. Open the door fully.
b. Remove the clips and carefully remove the
broken glass.
4. Never use inflammable liquid i.e. gasoline,
petrol paraffin etc. to start or freshen up a fire in
this heater.
c. Clean the glass recess in the door.
d. Place the glass into the door recess and replace
the four corner clips.
5. When the fire is well established add fuel to the
firebox. Adjust to the desired setting the spin
valve and / or the secondary air slide depending
on the fuel burned. (See Re-Fuelling Section).
e. Tighten screws.
f. Replace glass only with ceramic glass 5mm thick.
6. To shut the fire down, do not add fuel. Make
sure that the fire door is properly closed, that
the spin valve is firmly shut and the secondary
air slide is pushed up. Cutting off the air supply
will reduce the heat output.
SUMMER SHUTDOWN
For summer shutdown of the stove, ensure all ashes
have been cleaned from the ash compartment and
that the air control is open, to avoid condensation in
the stove firebox and possible corrosion during this
shutdown period.
FIRE SAFETY
To provide reasonable fire safety the following
should be given serious consideration:
1. The installation of smoke detectors.
2. A conveniently located fire extinguisher to contend with small fires resulting from burning
embers.
3. A practical evacuation plan.
