INSTALLATION
For clearances to non-combustIble or insulated walls refer to AS/NZS 2918
Note: For Spirit 550 & Limit 380, side clearance (B) to be no less than 200mm and rear
clearance (A) no less than 100mm irrespective of wall material, to ensure access to rear of
stove for baffle replacement.
To ensure the safe and proper functioning of your stove, it must be installed according to the
instructions included in this manual.
In terms of safety, the flue is the most important component of your stove as it is the exhaust
for the gases produced by the combustion of firewood. These gases are extremely corrosive,
reach high temperatures and often contain fuel components. Studies have demonstrated that
fires related to stove or wood cookstoves usually originate near the flue.
BOSCA REAR HEAT SHIELD
A Bosca Rear Heat Shield (shown right) is
supplied in all Bosca Flue Shield Kits and
can be used in conjunction with the flue
shield to reduce the rear clearance to the
minimum allowable distance.
What is the most suitable location to install my Bosca stove?
Bosca Rear
Heat Shield
*D In the above table denotes the
minimum allowable clearances for each
model if the Rear Heat Shield is fitted.If
the Rear Heat Shield is not fitted then
the rear clearance should be no less than
that stated in column A.
In the case of a freestanding stove, it is essential to choose a suitable location for its installation.
The following are the main considerations you should take into account:
1. It is important that the stove be located in an area that allows for an adequate circulation of
air currents. This will enable the hot air to reach the different rooms of the house more easily.
Additionally, the stove must be located so that it is not an obstacle to the free circulation of
people, especially children.
Note: The Rear Heat Shield cannot be
used with the Spirit 550 at any time. The
fitting instructions for the Rear Heat
Shield can be found with the
instructions for the Bosca Flue Shield Kit.
The Rear Heat Shield does not replace
the Bosca Flue Shield.
2. Be especially careful to maintain clearances to flammable material such as curtains and
carpets. The minimum installation distances are detailed to the right:

FLUE SHIELD
SEISMIC RESTRAINT
The Bosca flue shield (P/N110017)must be used in all installations where the fire is installed
against a combustible wall to the clearances listed in the chart on page 2 of this manual.
For New Zealand installations only
If the wall behind the fire is a non-combustable ventilated surface as per AS/NZS2918 then
clearances can be reduced and the flue shield is not required.
As per NZS 2918, Bosca fires installed in New Zealand are required to have seismic restraint.
This can be acheived in the Limit 380 and Firepoint 360 by using the two holes provided in
the baseplate of the fireplace and using masonary anchors if installing onto a concrete floor,
or any suitable fastener for wooden floors.
FLOOR PROTECTOR
Bosca freestanding wood fires DO NOT require an insulating floor protector as they comply with
the minimum floor protector requirements of AS/NZS 2918. These minimum floor protector
requirements are;
The Spirit 550 is supplied with two Seismic Restraint Brackets welded on each side as it does
not have a base plate. By using the two holes in these brackets and sing masonary anchors if
installing onto a concrete floor, or any suitable fastener for wooden floors.
- They must be of adequate size to give appropriate wall, rear and front clearances/projections
as detailed below and in the chart illustrated on page “2”
NOTE;
Must comply with all local council specifications.
Note: the fastener must pass through the Floor Protector if fitted and into the floor.
- The floor protector must extend 200mm horizontally to the rear and each side directly below
the door opening, and 300mm forward of the door opening.
- The upper surface of the floor protector must be made of non-combustible material.
- A suitable floor protector for a Bosca freestanding wood fire is therefore any noncombustible material which could include;
- Ceramic tiles with grouted joints fixed directly to timber flooring.
- A sheet of toughened glass, panel steel etc laid directly onto a wooden or other combustible
floor.
Note; If being installed directly onto concrete or non-combustible floor a floor protector
is not necessary.
FLUE INSTALLATION
Any flue system used on this fire must comply with and be installed as detailed in AS/NZS
2918:2001. We recommend the following kits which are compliant and come complete with
instructions.

How can I verify that the installation has been correctly executed?
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
We are aware of how important it is to you to feel confident that your stove has been properly
installed. Therefore, if you wish to verify the installation, we recommend you use the following
diagram to guide your inspection:
How does the double combustion system work?
Double combustion stoves have a secondary air inlet that preheats the air at a high temperature.
This hot air mixes with the combustion gases burning the volatile material and reducing
particulate material. This process is known as post combustion.

It is important that you understand that one of the elements that will allow you to obtain the
maximum performance from your stove is the purchase of good quality fuel. To maximize the
effectiveness of your stove follow the instructions detailed below on how to buy, store and
manipulate firewood:
Flue Shield
(Black Stainless Steel)
BURN ONLY UNTREATED SOFTWOOD DO NOT BURN COAL
- A highly relevant variable that determines the quality of the firewood is its humidity content.
This must be between 18 and 25%, to ensure an adequate duration and avoid energy loss as a
result of water evaporation as this reduces the power of the stove. Additionally, by using firewood
with low humidity content, you will avoid the production of creosote (a residue of combustion
that is deposited on the flues of your stove), resulting in lower maintenance costs.
- Remember to buy firewood that is no longer than 30 cm and approximately 15 cm in diameter.
This size firewood fits easily in your stove and the larger logs will not have to be cut to fit.
Floor Protection
(unless the floor is constructed
of non-combustable material)
- Having good quality firewood of appropriate humidity content does not only depend on buying
it correctly. This is only the starting point. If the manipulation of the wood is not adequate,

your efforts will have been wasted. This is why it is important that you safeguard the storage
conditions. The wood must be stored in an isolated location so that it is not exposed to rain and
receives adequate air circulation. Under no circumstance must it be in contact with the ground
unless it is paved.
4. Light the fire and close the upper door of the
stove.
5. Open the door of the ashtray and keep it this
way for approximately 3 minutes or until the
splinters are lit.
How can I recognize dry firewood before buying it?
- The logs are lighter.
- The bark must be partially detached and have cracks on the ends.
- It must not have white or grey spots.
- When you bend a small splinter with your fingers, it breaks.
Paper and splinters
light in 1 to 5 minutes.
Ashtray is open.
How do I check that the firewood is dry before using it?
Place a log in your stove over a large quantity of cinders and check for the following:
Dry Firewood: ignites on more than one side in minutes.
Humid Firewood: turns grayish-black and takes time to ignite.
Wet Firewood: emits a whistle sound, blackens, does not produce a flame and emits a large
quantity of smoke.
6. Open the upper door and add the load of
firewood, placing the lightest logs over the lit
splinters. It is very important that spaces are left
between the logs as these allow for air
circulation and consequently a faster and more
vigorous ignition.
IMPORTANT
Wet firewood is NOT apt for use.
Firewood Load
How do I light the stove? (Easy Lighting System)
IMPORTANT
The first time the stove is lit the high temperature paint on it will
smoke and emit a resin smell for some hours. Open the windows to
ventilate.
7. Finally, close the door and adjust the Primary
Air Control to “maximum” for 5 minutes or until
the flames burn vigorously, and then adjust the
control to “intermediate".
1. Check that the temperer is in its place,
if this is not so locate it in the correct
position as indicated on page 8.
2. Place crumpled paper in the middle of
the firebox.
3. Place various split logs over the paper
and some splinters on top of this,
preferably in a vertical position. Set the
Primary Air Control on “maximum”.

requires some practice, as you must first become
familiar with its functioning. Do not expect an
immediate reaction of the fire when you slide

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT
The best moment to reload the stove is when a good layer of cinders
has set itself. If this layer is too thin, the way to reload it is repeating
the initial lighting procedure (page 6).
How do I turn off the stove?
IMPORTANT
If you follow these instructions you will generate an effective
combustion that does not produce smoke nor contamination when
your start a fire in your stove, while ensuring its optimum
functioning.
1. As your stove is a safe unit it is not necessary to turn it off. However, if you wish to do so, all
you have to do is adjust the Primary Air Control to “minimum”. Remember that solid fuels react
slowly, so that this process will take several minutes.
IMPORTANT
The “minimum” position on the Primary Air Control must only be used to turn
off the stove. It must never be used as a way to save firewood, as the effect
will be to make the functioning of the stove deficient.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
How do I reload firewood in the stove?
1. Adjust the Primary Air Control to “maximum”
and open the door of the firebox (upper door).
2. Place the dry firewood logs on the cinders
inside the stove.Logs must be loaded front to
back as shown in the figure at right. As is the case
when lighting the fire, remember that it is better
if the logs are arranged with spaces between
them to allow air flow. Finally, close the upper
door.

What maintenance does my Bosca stove require?
Cleaning the flues is essential to ensure the proper functioning of your stove. This consists of
removing the creosote (a flammable substance that results from the combustion of firewood
with a high percentage of humidity and/or when there is insufficient air entering) from the
interior of the flue. This accumulation obstructs the flue and affects the proper functioning of
your stove, making the lighting process slow and tedious and impeding appropriate combustion.
Moreover, the combustion will not be vigorous and there will be insufficient draft and abundant
smoke emerging from the door.
Firewood load
IMPORTANT
Under certain conditions creosote can ignite, resulting in extremely high and
dangerous temperatures.
The frequency with which the flues must be cleaned varies according to the percentage of
humidity in the firewood you use. The flues must be cleaned at least once a year if the firewood
you use is dry. However, if it is green or contains over 25% humidity it must be done every 15 or
20 days.

4. It is not necessary to totally remove the
baffle from the stove once it is dismounted
in order to clean the flues.
We recommend the flues of your stove be cleaned by an Authorized Technical Service. If this is
not possible for any reason, you can clean the flues yourself by following the instructions indicated
below. The tools you will need are a ladder, a screwdriver and a steel brush. After cleaning the
flue, check the state of the seal between the flues and the sheet. If necessary, we recommend
you reseal with a suitable high temp sealant.
How do I clean the flues of my stove?
Your stove is installed in such a way that the flues can be cleaned without uninstalling the unit.
1. Make sure the stove and the flues are both
cold before touching them. We recommend
your always protect your hands by using
safety gloves.
2. Unscrew the cap and remove it.
5. Slide the ball inside the upper side of the
flue all the way down until it appears inside
the stove.
IMPORTANT
Bosca stoves contain a baffle that must be dismounted in order to
clean the unit.
3. Remove the anchoring screws to dismount
the baffle of your stove. We recommend you
carefully read the instructions on removing
the firebox baffle .
6. Pull the rope inside the stove so that the
steel brush moves up the flue. Repeat this
operation 6 times. Do not use regular steel
wool instead of a steel brush.
Keep the door as closed as possible to avoid
soot being dispersed outside the stove.

CHIMNEY FIRE
3
What is a chimney fire?
Soot and residue resulting from the combustion of firewood are deposited on the flue. These
are called creosote, which is a fuel. Under certain circumstances, the interior of the flue catches
fire producing extremely high temperatures that may reach such a level that the flue turns an
incandescent red color.
2
1
Incandescent creosote emanations may appear on the upper extreme of the flue.
What should I do in the case of a chimney fire?
How do I remove the ash from my stove?
The firebox of your stove has a slotted base so that the ashes produced by the combustion of the
firewood will be deposited in the ashtray.
Check that your stove is cold and proceed to empty the ashtray in a non combustible container,
preferably with a layer of sand on the bottom of it.
Take the ashes outside the house to a safe location. Remember that live coals can remain lit for up to
36 hours. The ash of untreated wood makes an excellent fertilizer for your garden.
- Stay calm. A properly installed flue in which the correct materials have been used
should resist the situation without problems.
- Close the door of the stove well and close the Primary Air Control. The fire on the
inside of the flue will most probably go out in five minutes. Do NOT open the door
of the firebox nor of the ashtray until 30 minutes after the chimney fire is
extinguished. Otherwise, the fire could reignite.
- Keep an eye on the flue, especially in the area of the roof space.
- Remove any fuel that may be near the flue.
IMPORTANT
Always maintain a bed of ash on the inside of the firebox as this
will make the accumulation of live coal and reloading easier.
- If the situation prolongs excessively or if you suspect the installation was not
properly executed, call the fire department immediately.
- Do not use your stove again until it has been checked by a certified technician.
How do I clean the glass on my stove?
One of the appeals of your Bosca stove is the visible fire. However, often this is limited because of
spots that appear on the glass of the stove. To avoid this follow the instructions below:
-The main cause of spots on the glass is directly associated to the use of firewood with high humidity
content together with maintaining the Primary Air Control on “minimum”. Avoid the occurrence of
both by buying dry firewood and storing it correctly and maintaining the Primary Air Control in the
"intermediate" position.
-Periodically clean the glass of your stove with Bosca Glass Cleaning Cream.
How can I avoid a chimney fire?
- The key to avoiding a chimney fire is to keep your stove’s gas exhaust system clean.
- To keep the flue clean, your stove must function with a vigorous fire. Avoid using your stove
with flameless smoking fire.
- Use dry firewood. Humid firewood reduces the temperature of the fire and increases the
possibility of a chimney fire.
- When reloading your stove, avoid cooling the existing fire. Place the Primary Air Control on
“maximum” and try that the new logs heat fast. Only after this has occurred should you adjust
the Primary Air Control to the “intermediate” position.
