(e.g. drywall plus ceramic tiles) to allow the
finished surface to be flush with the front of the
unit. Total facing thickness can vary from 1/2"
(13mm) to 1-1/4" (32mm) thick.
"C" Screw Position:
For a facing material depth of 1-1/4"
(32mm), the top facing support must be
reversed.
The Top Facing Support & Side Nailing Strips
can be mounted in 3 different positions depending on the thickness of the facing material.
Top Standoff Assembly
The top standoffs are shipped in a flat position
and must be folded into shape and attached.
1) Remove the standoffs from the fireplace
top.
2) Take each standoff and bend into the correct shape. Bend up at the bend lines until
the screw holes in the standoff and the prepunched screw holes on the fireplace top
line up.
3) Attach the standoff securely to the top with
2 screws per standoff (on opposite corners).

VENTING
INTRODUCTION
The P36 uses the "balanced flue" technology
Co Axial system. The inner liner vents products
of combustion to the outside while the outer
liner draws outside combustion air into the
combustion chamber thereby eliminating the
need to use heated room air for combustion and
losing warm room air up the chimney.
Note:
These flue pipes must not be connected to any other appliance.
The gas appliance and vent system must be
vented directly to the outside of the building, and
never be attached to a chimney serving a
separate solid fuel or gas burning appliance.
Each direct vent gas appliance must use it's
own separate vent system. Common vent systems are prohibited.

INSTALLATION
b) Horizontal runs of vent must be supported every three feet. Wall straps are
available for this purpose.
HORIZONTAL
INSTALLATIONS
Install the vent system according to the
manufacturer's instructions included
with the components.
1) Set the unit in its desired location. Check to
determine if wall studs or roof rafters are in
the way when the venting system is attached. If this is the case, you may want to
adjust the location of the unit. Rough in the
gas preferably on the right side of the unit
and the electrical (junction block is on the left
side) on the left.
2) Direct Vent pipe and fittings are designed
with special twist-lock connections to connect the venting system to the appliance flue
outlet. A twist-lock appliance adaptor is an
available option that must be used in conjunction with the Simpson Dura-Vent Direct
Vent GS system.
3) Put a bead of silicone inside the outer section
of the adapter and a bead of Stove Mate on
the inner collar. Slip the adapter over the
existing inner and outer flue collar and
fasten to the outer collar only with the 3
supplied screws (drilling pilot holes will
make this easier). Level the fireplace and
fasten it to the framing using nails or screws
through the nailing strips.
4) Assemble the desired combination of pipe
and elbows to the appliance adaptor and
twist-lock for a solid connection.
5) Mark the wall for a 10" x 10" square hole.
The center of the square hole should line up
with the centerline of the horizontal pipe.
Cut and frame the 10 inch square hole in the
exterior wall where the vent will be terminated. If the wall being penetrated is constructed of non-combustible material, i.e.
masonry block or concrete, a 7"(178mm)
dia. (7-1/2"(191mm) dia. for flex) hole is
acceptable.
Note: With Dura-Vent,
the
minimum height
is achieved
by installing a
90o elbow directly to the
flue adaptor.
Note:
Riser
Vent is only for
use in above
grade terminations.
Diagram 3a
*Diagrams 3 & 4: As specified in CGA B149
Installation Code. Local codes or regulations may require different clearances.
Below Grade Installation
Diagram 2
Note:
a) The horizontal run of vent must be level,
or have a 1/4 inch rise for every 1 foot
of run towards the termination. Never
allow the vent to run downward. This
could cause high temperatures and may
present the possibility of a fire.
Note:
a) Twist-lock procedure: Four indentations,
located on the female ends of pipes and
fittings, are designed to slide straight
onto the male ends of adjacent pipes and
fittings, by orienting the four pipe indentations so they match and slide in to the
four entry slots on the male ends, Diagram 1. Push the pipe sections completely together, then twist-lock one
section clockwise approximately onequarter turn, until the two sections are
fully locked. The female locking lugs will
not be visible from the outside, on the
Black Pipe or fittings. They may be located by examining the inside of the female
ends.
Diagram 1
Note: Apply sealant "Mill-Pac" to inner
pipe and high temperature silicone sealant to outer pipe on every twist-lock joint.
FPI P36-3 Zero Clearance Direct Vent Gas Fireplace
If the Snorkel Termination must be installed
below grade, i.e. basement application, proper
drainage must be provided to prevent water
from entering the Snorkel Termination. Refer to
Diagram 4. Do not attempt to enclose the Snorkel within the wall, or any other type of enclosure.
b) The location of the horizontal vent termination on an exterior wall must meet all
local and national building codes, and
must not be blocked or obstructed. For
External Vent Terminal Locations, see
diagram on page 19.
c) Snorkel Terminations:
For installations requiring a vertical rise
on the exterior of the
building, 14-inch and
36-inch tall Snorkel
Terminations are
available, as well as
the standard Riser
Vent. Follow
the same installation
procedures as
used for
standard
Horizontal
Termination. NEVER install
the snorkel
upside
down.
Diagram 3
Diagram 4
NOTE: For Snorkel terminations in ABOVE
grade installations, follow national or local code requirements.
6) The arrow on the vent cap should be
pointing up. Insure that the 1-1/2" clearances to combustible materials are maintained (Diagram 4). Install the termination
cap.
The four wood screws provided should be
replaced with appropriate fasteners for
31
INSTALLATION
4) Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and
elbows. Ensure that all pipes and elbow
connections are in the fully twist-locked
position and sealed.
VERTICAL
TERMINATION
1) Maintain the 1-1/4" clearances
(air spaces) to combustibles
when passing through ceilings,
walls, roofs, enclosures, attic
rafter, or other nearby combustible surfaces. Do not pack
air spaces with insulation.
Check for the maximum vertical
rise of the venting system and
the maximum horizontal offset
limitations.
5) Cut a hole in the roof centered on the small
drilled hole placed in the roof in Step 2. The
hole should be of sufficient size to meet the
minimum requirements for clearance to
combustibles of 1-1/2". Slip the flashing
under the shingles (shingles should overlap half the flashing) as per Diagram 4.
Diagram 5
stucco, brick, concrete, or other types of
sidings.
Note: If installing termination on a siding
covered wall, a vinyl siding standoff or furring strips must be used
to ensure that the termination is
not recessed into the siding.
7) Before connecting the horizontal run of
vent pipe to the vent termination, slide the
Wall Thimble over the vent pipe.
8) Slide the appliance and vent assembly towards the wall carefully inserting the vent
pipe into the vent cap assembly. It is important that the vent pipe extends into the vent
cap sufficient distance so as to result in a
minimum pipe overlap of 1-1/4 inches. Secure the connection between the vent pipe
and the vent cap by attaching the two sheet
metal strips extending from the vent cap
assembly into the outer wall of the vent
pipe. Use the two sheet metal screws
provided to connect the strips to the pipe
section. See Diagram 6.
2) Set the gas appliance in
its desired location. Drop
a plumb bob down from
the ceiling to the position
Diagram 1
of the appliance flue exit,
and mark the location
where the vent will penetrate the ceiling.
Drill a small hole at his point. Next, drop a
plumb bob from the roof to the hole previously drilled in the ceiling, and mark the spot
where the vent will penetrate the roof.
Determine if ceiling joists, roof
rafters or otherframing will
obstruct the
venting system.
You may wish
to relocate the
appliance or to
offset,
as
shown in Diagram 2 to avoid
cutting load
bearing members.

nailed down until the chimney is installed.
This allows for small adjustments.
6) Continue to assemble pipe lengths.
Note: If an offset is necessary in the attic
to avoid obstructions, it is important to support the vent pipe every
3 feet, to avoid excessive stress
on the elbows, and possible separation. Wall straps are available
for this purpose (Diagram 2).
Galvanized pipe is desirable above the roofline due to its higher corrosion resistance.
Continue to add pipe sections through the
flashing until the height of the vent cap meets
the minimum height requirements specified in
Diagram 5 or local codes. Note that for steep

roof pitches, the vertical height must be
increased. A poor draft, or down drafting
can result from high wind conditions near big
trees or adjoining roof lines, in these cases,
increasing the vent height may solve the
problem.
7) Ensure vent is vertical and secure the base
of the flashing to the roof with roofing rails,
slide storm collar over the pipe section and
seal with a mastic.
8) Install the vertical termination cap by twistlocking it.
Note: Any closets or storage spaces,
which the vent passes through
must be enclosed.
Offset Chart
Note: To make the
installation more
aesthetically pleasing, we recommend framing out a
square to mount
the terminal to.
Note: If installing termination on a siding
covered wall, furring strips must
be used to ensure that the termination is not recessed into the
siding.
2) Level the fireplace and fasten it to the
framing using nails or screws through the
nailing strips.
3) Assemble the vent assembly by applying
Mill Pac to the 4"(100mm) inner collar of the
termination and slipping the 4"(100mm) liner
over it at least 1-3/8" (35mm). Fasten with
the 3 screws (drilling pilot holes will make
this easier). Apply Mill Pac or high temperature silicone to the 6-7/8"(175mm) flex pipe
and slip it over the 6-7/8" outer collar of the
vent terminal at least 1-3/8"(35mm) and
fasten with the 3 screws.
NOTE: Horizontal sections must be supported at intervals not exceeding 3
feet (0.9 meter). (Flame picture and
performance will be affected by
sags in the liner).
INSTALLATION
PROCEDURES
4) Separate the 2 halves of the wall thimble
and securely fasten the one with the tabs
to the outside wall making sure that the tabs
are on top and bottom. Fasten the other
thimble half to the inside wall. The thimble
halves slip inside each other and can be
adjusted for 2 x 4 or 2 x 6 walls. The liners
must slip over the collars a minimum
of 1-3/8".
5) Slip the assembled liner and termination
assembly through the thimble making sure
the termination cap faces up (there are
markings on the cap that show which way
is up). This will position the termination cap
with proper down slope for draining water.
Fasten the cap to the outer wall with the 4
supplied screws.
6) Pull the centre 4"(100mm) liner and outer
6-7/8"(175mm) liner out enough to slip over
the flue collars of the fireplace. (You may
wish to cut the liner shorter to make it more
workable.) Do not bend liner more than 90o.
7) Apply Mill Pac over the fireplace inner collar
and slip the 4"(100mm) liner down over it
and attach with 3 supplied screws.
8) Do the same with the 6-7/8"(175mm) liner.
9) Apply a bead of silicone between the thimble and termination and around the outer
edge of the terminal at the wall in order to
keep the water out.
IMPORTANT: Do not locate termination
hood where excessive snow or ice buildup may occur. Be sure to check vent
termination area after snow falls, and clear
to prevent accidental blockage of venting
system. When using snow blowers, make
sure snow is not directed towards vent
termination area.
for FPI Direct Vent
System (Flex)
1) Locate the unit in the framing, rough in the
gas (preferably on the right side of the unit)
and the electrical (Junction block is on the
left side) on the left. Locate the centerline
of the termination and mark wall accordingly. Cut a 10"(254mm) hole in the wall (inside
dimension).
Note: A 2" clearance at the top and 1 1/2"
clearance around the liner must
be maintained except that only a 1"
(25mm) clearance is needed at the
termination end. We recommend
framing
a
10"(254mm)
x
10"(254mm) (inside dimensions)
hole to give structural rigidity for
mounting the termination.

HIGH ELEVATION
PILOT ADJUSTMENT
Periodically check the pilot flames. Correct flame pattern has three strong blue
flames: 1 flowing around the thermopile,
1 around the thermocouple and 1 flowing
across the burner (it does not have to be
touching the burner).
Note: If you have an incorrect flame pattern, contact your FPI dealer for
further instructions.
This unit is approved in Canada for altitude 0 to
4500 ft. (CAN1 2.17-M91) with the orifice supplied.
GAS LINE
INSTALLATION
The gas line is brought through the right of the
appliance. The gas valve is situated on the right
hand side of the unit and the gas inlet is on the
right hand side of the valve.
Incorrect flame pattern will have small,
probably yellow flames, not coming into
proper contact with the rear burner or
thermopile or thermocouple.
The gas line connection may be made of rigid
pipe, copper pipe or an approved flex connector. (If you are using rigid pipe, ensure that the
valve can be removed for servicing.) Since
some municipalities have additional local codes
it is always best to consult with your local
authorities and the CAN/CGA B149 installation
code.
For USA installations follow local codes and/or
the current National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1.
When using copper or flex connectors use
only approved fittings. Always provide a union
so that gas lines can be easily disconnected for
servicing. Flare nuts for copper lines and flex
connectors are usually considered to meet this
requirement.
Important: Always check for gas leaks
with a soap and water solution or gas
leak detector. Do not use open flame for
leak testing.
GAS PIPE PRESSURE
TESTING
The appliance must be isolated from the gas
supply piping system by closing its individual
manual shut-off valve during any pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at test
pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig. (3.45
kPa). Disconnect piping from valve at pressures over 1/2 psig.
The manifold pressure is controlled by a regulator built into the gas control, and should be
checked at the pressure test point.
Note: To properly check gas pressure,
both inlet and manifold pressures
should be checked using the valve
pressure ports on the valve.

1) Use the wall switch, thermostat or remote
control to turn off the main burner.
2) Turn the main gas control clockwise to the
"OFF" position to turn off the pilot.
3) Turn off all electric power to appliance if
service is to be performed.
FIRST FIRE
The first fire in your stove is part of the paint
curing process. To ensure that the paint is
properly cured, it is recommended that you burn
44
your fireplace for at least four (4) hours the first
time you use it with the fan on.
When first operated, the unit will release an
odour caused by the curing of the paint, the
burning off of any oils remaining from manufacturing. Smoke detectors in the house may go off
at this time. Open a few windows to ventilate
the room for a couple of hours.
The glass panel may require cleaning after the
unit has cooled down.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE
GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT.
Note: When the glass is cold and the
appliance is lit, it may cause condensation and fog the glass. This
condensation is normal and will
disappear in a few minutes as the
glass heats up.
DO NOT BURN THE APPLIANCE
WITHOUT THE GLASS FRONT IN
PLACE.
During the first few fires, a white film
may develop on the glass front as part
of the curing process. The glass should
be cleaned or the film will bake on and
become very difficult to remove. Use
a non-abrasive cleaner and NEVER clean
the glass while it is hot.
AERATION
ADJUSTMENT
The air shutter can be adjusted by moving the
adjusting wire up or down. The wire is accessed through the bottom louver opening.
Open the air shutter for a blue flame or close for
a yellower flame. The burner aeration is factory
set but may need adjusting due to either the
local gas supply or altitude.
Adjustment wire: Push to close or
pull to open aeration cap.
Closed - Tall yellow
Open - Short Blue
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:
FPI 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.
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.
Minimum Air Shutter Opening:
3/16"
Natural Gas
1/2"
Propane
CAUTION: Carbon will be produced if air
shutter is closed too much.
Note: Any damage due to carboning resulting from improperly setting
the aeration controls is NOT covered under warranty.
Note: Aeration Adjustment should only
be performed by an authorized FPI
Installer at the time of installation
or service.
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.
Unit Body/Firebox:
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.

MAINTENANCE
in the inner liner, and subsequently dripping
out the joints, Continuous condensation
can cause corrosion of caps, pipe, and
fittings. It may be caused by having excessive lateral runs, too many elbows, and
exterior portions of the system being exposed to cold weather.
4) Inspect joints, to verify that no pipe sections
or fittings have been disturbed, and consequently loosened. Also check mechanical
supports such as Wall Straps, or plumbers'
tape for rigidity.
GOLD-PLATED or
BRASS LOUVERS
The 24 carat gold-plated or brass finish on the
louvers and trim 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 void the
warranty. Clean any fingerprints off before turning the unit on.
GOLD-PLATED or

If the top louvers start to
discolour, check the door gasket seal
and replace if necessary.
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 and 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 diagrams under Log
Installation.
Note: Improper positioning of logs may
create carbon build-up and will
severely alter the unit's performance which is not covered under
warranty.
