FIREPLACE MAINTENANCE
Creosote
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar
and other organic vapors which combine with
expelled moisture to form a black deposit called
creosote. 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
makes an extremely hot fire. If the creosote
accumulation is large, a creosote fire in the
chimney can damage the chimney and overheat the surrounding wood framing. Creosote
formation in a chimney can be minimized by
making small hot fires rather than slow burning,
smouldering fires.
Chimney maintenance
Regular chimney inspection and maintenance
combined with proper operation will help prevent chimney fires. Keep your chimney clean.
Do not allow more than a 1/16" (1.6mm) build-up
of creosote in your chimney. The amount of
creosote will depend on variables such as frequency of use and type of fire. We recommend
that you follow the instructions below:
1. Initially, inspect the chimney system weekly.
By doing this, you will learn how often it will be
necessary to clean your chimney.
2. Have your chimney cleaned by a qualified
chimney sweep. Chimney maintenance should
only be conducted by a qualified technical or
chimney sweep company.
3. Do not expect chemical cleaners to keep your
chimney clean.
6. Watch for smouldering or fire on combustibles
next to the fireplace and chimney. Check outside
to ensure that sparks and hot embers coming out
of the chimney are not igniting the roof.
7. Do not use the fireplace again until your
chimney and fireplace have been inspected by
a qualified chimney sweep or a fire department
inspector.
Door Frame Care
Use a glass cleaner and a soft cloth to polish
the frame. Do not use abrasives such as steel
wool or steel pads for they may scratch the
door frame finish.
Glass Cleaning
The ME43 fireplace is designed to keep the
glass clean under normal operating conditions. To clean the glass there are a number of
specially designed cleaners. Your authorized
LHP Dealer can recommend a suitable cleaner.
Regular household glass cleaners will not clean
creosote. Do not use abrasives such as steel
pads, steel wool or oven cleaner as they will
scratch the glass.
Doors Adjustment
Glass doors may lose their adjustment during
transportation or installation of the fireplace.
A wrong adjustment may cause a loss in
combustion’s efficiency and control. The glass
doors must be parallel, at the same height and
must almost touch each other when closed.
Maximum spacing between the doors is one
sixteenth of an inch (1/16’’).
The raincap can be removed for inspection
and/or cleaning of the chimney. Unscrew the
braces which attach the raincap to the chimney.
Using gloves, firmly grip the upper portion of
the rain cap. Turn the cap and lift it off the
chimney.
The glass doors can be adjusted by loosening
the three (3) screws of the hinges’ supports
(see fastening screws in Figure 1). If a minor
angular adjustment is needed, you may loosen
only two (2) of the three (3) screws using the
other as a pivot point.
Glass Replacement
The glass used for the ME43 fireplace doors is
a high temperature ceramic glass. If the glass
breaks, it must be replaced with a ceramic glass
such as Neoceram. Tempered or ordinary glass
will not withstand the high temperatures of
the ELITE ME43 fireplace. Replacement glass
should be purchased from your local LHP dealer.
Do not operate the unit with cracked or broken
glass. To remove the glass panel, unscrew the
frame screws, remove the interior frame and
the glass panel.
Removal Of Ashes
Remove ashes only when the fire is out and the
ashes are cold. Lift the front of the log grate
until it rests against the rear refractory; then
remove the ashes. Ashes should be placed in
a metal container with a tight-fitting lid. The
closed container of ashes should be placed on
a non-combustible 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. Do not leave
the ashes in the house as they give off carbon
monoxide and other toxic gases.
Fastening
Screws
Chimney fires
If you are having a chimney fire, follow these
steps:
1. Close the glass doors and the air inlet.
Frame
Screws
2. Close the chimney outside air register.
3. Alert your family of the possible danger.
4. If you require assistance, alert your fire
department.
5. If possible, use a dry chemical fire extinguisher, baking soda or sand to control the fire.
Do not use water as it may cause dangerous
steam explosions.

OPERATING THE fireplace
Fuel
The ME43 fireplace is designed to work best
when fueled with seasoned cordwood. Hardwoods are preferred to softwoods since the
energy content of wood is relative to its density.
Hardwoods will result in a longer burning fire
and less frequent refueling. A moisture content of 15% to 20% (seasoned) is preferred.
Excessively wet wood will be difficult to burn
and will result in lower efficiency and increased
creosoting.
How to use the retractable doors
and firescreens
The Lennox ME43 fireplace features retractable
doors and firescreens in order to allow a wider
view of the fire and save space when the doors
are opened. To retract the doors, simply open
them at 90° and push them into the opening
on the side of the firebox. The same procedure
applies for the retractable firescreens. (see
Figure 2).
Note : Do not operate the fireplace with both firescreen and doors closed at the same time.
Do not burn scrap or garbage, treated wood or
wood such as driftwood from the ocean which
has been exposed to salt or other chemicals.
Salt or chemicals can corrode the firebox and
chimney. Do not abuse the unit by burning
large amounts of paper, cardboard, Christmas
tree branches or building construction materials such as pressed wood, plywood or lumber.
Intense firing with these may overheat the
fireplace, causing damage to the unit, a fire,
or even possibly igniting a chimney fire, if the
chimney is creosoted.
The outside air register is located on the upper
part of the top louver. The outside air register
supplies oxygen to the fire and allows control
of the fire when the doors are closed. The fresh
air must come from outside the house (the
air intake must not draw air from inside the
house). This will minimize negative pressure
in the house. The more you slide the register
to the left, the more fresh air into the firebox
and the more accelerated combustion you will
get (see Figure 3). When starting a fire, the
register should always be fully opened.
FIREPLACE INSTALLATION
Preinstallation
Please Read Before Installing:
1.Before beginning the installation of your
fireplace, read these safety tips and installation instructions carefully to be sure you
understand them completely. Failure to
follow them could cause a fireplace malfunction resulting in serious bodily injury and/or
property damage.
First Fires
The first 5 or 6 fires should be small fires of
short duration (about 30-60 minutes). The first
fire should be especially short. This will help
cure the refractory bricks. The first fires may
produce slight smoking and some odor due
to drying of the paint and steel and any dust
accumulated on the fireplace will be burn off at
this time. For this reason the room should be
well ventilated during the first few fires.
How to use the outside air register
(fireplace)
2.The ME43 fireplace has been tested and listed
to UL and ULC standards by Warnock Hersey
International Inc. These instructions were
written to give you an outline for a fast and
safe installation and trouble-free operation.
Figure 2 PUSH TO
OPEN
Building A Fire
PUSH TO OPEN
To start a fire, place several crumpled up balls of
newspaper in the firebox. Place small dry pieces
of kindling on top of the paper, crisscrossing the
kindling so that there is airspaces in between.
Place the larger pieces of kindling on top of the
pile. Keep the fuel far back enough so that air
can get underneath. Open the air control fully
and light the newspaper. Once the kindling fire
is well established, cordwood can be added.
The unit will burn best with a minimum of two
pieces of cordwood spaced 1" to 2" apart and allowing air to get under the fuel. Crisscrossing or
arranging the fuel so that air can get underneath,
will help the fire to get started easily.

Hearth Extension Requirements
(refer to Figure 7)
A non-combustible hearth extension must
be built in front of the fireplace and extend
out on both sides. Hearth extensions must
be constructed according to the following
guidelines:
1. A layer of sheet metal 0.018" (0.45mm) thick
or 3/8" (9mm) thick insulating board or any
other material (tiles, marble, granite) with
equivalent heat resistance may be used.
Check with the local building authorities
before installing to determine what other
materials are acceptable in your area.
2.The hearth extension should be secured to
the floor. The gap between the fireplace and
the hearth extension must be sealed with
non-combustible caulking or cement.
3.On a raised base or raised hearth, a “Z” shape
piece of metal must be fabricated to join the
bottom of the fireplace to the floor.
Outside Air Installation
The outside air assembly must be installed
according to the following guidelines:
1.The maximum length of 4" I.D. (100 mm)
insulated flexible duct is 20 feet (6.1 m). If a
longer duct is required, use a 6" I.D. (150mm)
insulated flexible duct. The maximum length
is 40 feet (12 m). Refer to Figures 8B and
8C for connections.
2.The duct and register may be installed above
or below floor level.
3.The outside air register must not be installed
more than 7 feet (2.1 m) above the base of
the fireplace.
4.The outside air assembly must draw air from
outside the house. It must not draw air from
the attic, the basement or a garage.
5.Locate the outside register where it will be
well away from automobile exhaust fumes
or other vents.
6.The outside air register should be installed
where it is not likely to be blocked by snow
or exposed to extreme wind.
7.It is recommended to install the outside air
register at floor level. However, if you must
raise the air register above the fireplace level,
you will have to make a loop to the floor with
the flexible pipe to prevent from causing a
draft in the outside air register (see Figure
8 Detail A).
Outside Air Assembly
The outside air assembly is mandatory for
the fireplace.
7' MAX.
During operation, the fireplace requires air for
combustion and draws air out of the house. It
may starve other fuel burning appliances such
as gas or oil furnaces. As well, exhaust fans
and fan driven appliances may compete for
air, causing a negative pressure in the home,
resulting in smoke entering the home from
the fireplace. This situation is aggravated in
modern airtight houses.
LOOP IS MANDATORY
To overcome this potential problem, the
installation of an outside air assembly is
required to provide outside combustion air to
the fireplace.

The knock-outs provided on the sides of the
ME43 fireplace allow the connection of insulated
flexible pipe which enables you to heat adjacent
rooms up to 50 feet from the fireplace.
The ducting system must be installed as described below :
1. Fix the adaptor at the side of the fireplace by
twist-locking the adaptor to the fireplace.
You can use more than one outlet on the
fireplace (Figure 11).
2. Attach the 5" flexible pipe, using the collars provided. Important: Make sure that
the plastic wrapping around the flexible
pipe will not be in contact with the fireplace.
3. Route the flexible pipe to the chosen location. The ducting system can be installed
either in an upper room or in a lower
room.
4. Attach the flexible pipe to the fan, using
the collars (Figure 12).
5. Fix the decorative grill fan adaptor to the
fan.
6. Attach a standard 3" x 10" grill to the
adaptor.
7. Install the blower thermostat in that part
of the house to be heated by the hot air
duct. Do not install the blower thermostat
in the room where the fireplace is located.
A cooling thermostat can be installed in the
same room as the unit. This thermostat
will turn on the blower when the room
where the fireplace is located becomes
too hot.

Chase Enclosure
A chase is a vertical box-like structure constructed to surround the fireplace and chimney. Refer
to Figure 14 for a typical chase configuration.
As with all chimney installations, avoid overhead
obstructions such as trees, power lines, etc.
A chase should be constructed and insulated
just like any outside wall. In a cold climate, we
recommend the base of the chase should also
be insulated between the solid continuous floor
beneath the fireplace and the chase bottom.
Chase insulation in a cold climate installation
is not required for safety.

Chimney system
The ME43 fireplace is listed only with Security
Chimneys™ International Ltd. chimney systems, models ASHT+ 8", S-2100+ 8", or AC
8". Do not connect the fireplace to a masonry
chimney, chimney liner, or other brand of
factory-built chimney.
In areas with continuous temperatures below
0º F (-18º C), the use of an exterior chimney
increases the likelihood of operating problems
such as low draft, high rate of creosoting and
poor start up characteristics. Exterior chimneys are also prone to down-drafting and flow
reversal. Installations located in a basement,
in combination with outside chimneys, are
especially prone to flow reversal. In cold areas,
air cooled chimneys should not be used in an
exterior installation.
If the chimney extends higher than 5 feet
(1500mm) above its point of contact with the
roof, it must be secured using a roof brace
or guide wires.
A rain cap must be installed on top of the chimney. Failure to install a rain cap may cause the
fireplace to corrode and operate inefficiently.
Cut and frame square holes in all floors and
the roof to provide a 2" (50mm) clearance
between the chimney and any combustible
materials. Do not fill this 2" (50mm) space
with any material.
Portions of the chimney which may extend
through accessible spaces must be enclosed
to avoid contact with combustible materials or
damage the chimney.
Minimum System Heights
Fireplace Model
WARNING
If insulation is used, the fireplace
must not be placed directly
against it. Insulation or vapor
barriers, if used, must first be
covered with drywall panels,
plywood, particle board or other
material to assure insulation and
vapor barriers remain in place.
WARNING
Do not pack or fill required air
spaces with insulation or other
material. No material is allowed
in these areas.
*Construction Materials:
• framing materials
• particle board
• dry wall
• plywood
Note: 2" clearance to combustibles around
chimney components required.
Note: Do not insulate the chase cavity with
blown or fill type insulation materials.
Note: Local codes may not require firestopping
at the ceiling levels for outside chase installations. However, it is recommended for safety
and the reduction of heat loss.
Chimney Height
The total height of your completed fireplace
system from the surface the fireplace rests on to
the chimney top must not exceed 60' and must
also meet minimum height requirements. Refer
to the minimum system height chart.

INSTRUCTIONS
STRAIGHT INSTALLATION
Cut and frame the holes in the ceiling, floor and
roof where the chimney will pass (see Figure
16). Use a plumb-bob to line up the center of
the holes. The hole sizes are indicated in Table
2 for the floor and ceiling holes and in Table 3
on Page 15 for the roof holes.
From below, install a firestop in each ceiling/
floor separation through which the chimney will
pass. At the attic level, install an attic radiation
shield from above (see Figures 17A & 17B).
For ASHT+ and S-2100+ chimneys, place the
first chimney length on the fireplace. To lock
it into place, turn 1/4 of a turn clockwise. With
the AC chimney you must use a starting section
before installing the first chimney length (see
Figure 18). Continue installing chimney lengths
until you reach the desired height.
Every time the chimney passes through a
roof or a wall, install the appropriate firestop.
When you reach the desired height, install the
roof support (see instructions included with
the support).

OFFSET CHIMNEY INSTALLATION
ASHT+ and S2100+ Chimneys
AC chimney
The minimum chimney height (including
the fireplace) when using elbows is:
1. Install the first elbow. Turn it in
the required direction. Fasten it to
the chimney with the three (3) 1/2"
(12mm) metal screws provided.
2. Install the necessary lengths to achieve
the required offset. Lock the chimney
lengths together: it is recommended
to use three (3) 1/2" (12mm) screws.
If the offset length is made of two (2)
chimney lengths use an offset support
halfway up the offset. If penetrating
a wall, install a wall radiation shield
(see Figure 22).
3. Use another elbow to turn the chimney
vertically. Secure the elbow, using
three (3) 1/2" (12mm) screws.
4. Use a plumb-bob to line up the center
of the hole. Cut a hole for the chimney in the ceiling. Frame this hole as
described previously (see Page 12).
5. From below, install a radiation shield
(Figure 17A).
6. A support (ST+ or SO+) must be used
on the first 15’ section (5 m).
7. Continue with the regular installation.
1. Install the first elbow. Turn it in the
required direction. To lock it in place,
turn 1/8 of a turn. Fasten the straps attached to the elbow to the surrounding
framing using nails or drywall screws
(Figure 20).
2. Install the necessary chimney lengths
to achieve the required offset. Lock the
chimney lengths together. If penetrating a wall, use a wall radiation shield
(Figure 22).
3. Use another elbow to turn the chimney
vertically. Lock it to the chimney.
Fasten the straps attached to the elbow
to the surrounding framing using nails
or drywall screws.
4. Use a plumb-bob to line up the center
of the hole. Cut a hole for the chimney in the ceiling. Frame this hole as

UNIVERSAL ROOF SUPPORT INSTALLATION
CHIMNEY CHASE AND MULTIPLE
TERMINATIONS
This support has three possible uses:
1. For ASHT+ and S-2100+ chimneys, it must be used on a roof to support the chimney.
2. It may be used on a floor, ceiling or roof above an offset to support the chimney above the
offset.
3. It may be used on a floor, ceiling or roof as a supplementary support when the chimney height
exceeds 15 feet (4.6 m.).
Table 7 gives maximum height of supported chimney.
NOTE: For the AC chimney, a support section (AC8SL) must be used every 40’ (12 m) instead
of the ST.
For roof support installation, refer to the instructions provided with the support.
For the purpose of this manual, a chimney chase
is considered a part of the chimney system
rather than part of a building. The termination
must be placed a minimum of 18" (460mm)
above the chase.
For installation where more than one chimney
is located in the same chase or within the same
general area, we suggest that their terminations be separated by at least 16" (410mm)
horizontally and 18" (460mm) vertically. This
separation is to prevent smoke migrating from
one chimney to another (see Figure 23).
UNIVERSAL OFFSET SUPPORT INSTALLATION
This support is used to support the chimney above an offset. When the chimney offset is used
to traverse a wall, this support may be used on the wall to support the chimney. The maximum
heights are given in Table 7. For offset support installation, refer to the instructions provided
with the support.
