This fireplace gives off high temperatures and should
be located out of high traffic areas and away from
furniture and draperies.
Children and adults should be alerted to the hazards
of the high surface temperatures of this fireplace and
should stay away to avoid burns or ignition of clothing.
Children should be carefully supervised when in the
same room as your fireplace.
Under no circumstances should this fireplace be
modified. Parts removed for servicing should be
replaced prior to operating this fireplace again.
Installation and any repairs to this fireplace must be
performed by a qualified installer, service agency or
gas supplier. A professional service person should be
contacted to inspect this fireplace annually. Make it a
practice to have all of your gas fireplaces checked
annually. More frequent cleaning may be required due
to excess lint and dust from carpeting, bedding
material, etc.
Control compartments, burners and air passages in
this fireplace should be kept clean and free of dust
and lint. Make sure the gas valve and pilot light are
turned off before you attempt to clean this fireplace.
The venting system (chimney) of this fireplace should
be checked at least once a year and if needed your
venting system should be cleaned.
Keep the area around your fireplace clear of
combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable
vapor and liquids. This fireplace should not be used
as a drying rack for clothing, nor should Christmas
stockings or decorations be hung in the area of it.
Under no circumstances should any solid fuels (wood,
coal, paper or cardboard etc.) be used in this fireplace.
The flow of combustion and ventilation air must not be
obstructed in any way.
When fireplace is installed directly on carpeting, vinyl
tile or any combustible material other than wood, this
fireplace must be installed on a metal or wood panel
extending the full width and depth of the fireplace.
This fireplace requires adequate ventilation and
combustion air to operate properly.
This fireplace must not be connected to a chimney
flue serving a separate solid fuel burning fireplace.
When the fireplace is not in use it is recommended
that the gas valve be left in the “OFF” position.
10002428
Proposition 65 Warning: Fuels used in gas, woodburning or oil fired appliances, and the products of
combustion of such fuels, contain chemicals known to
the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and
other reproductive harm.
California Health & Safety Code Sec. 25249.6
This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket
permanently located, manufactured home or mobile home,
where not prohibited by local codes.
This appliance is only for use with the type of gas indicated on the rating plate. This appliance is not convertible
for use with other gases, unless a certified kit is used.
The DVRT36RMH has been approved for mobile home
installations.
IMPORTANT:
PLEASE REVIEW THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY
Remove any plastic from trim parts before turning the
fireplace “ON”.
It is normal for fireplaces fabricated of steel to give off
some expansion and/or contraction noises during the
start up or cool down cycle. Similar noises are found with
your furnace heat exchanger or car engine.
It is not unusual for your Vermont Castings, Majestic
Products gas fireplace to give off some odor the first time
it is burned. This is due to the curing of the paint and any
undetected oil from the manufacturing process.
Please ensure that your room is well ventilated - open
all windows.
It is recommended that you burn your fireplace for at
least ten (10) hours the first time you use it. If the optional
fan kit has been installed, place the fan switch in the
“OFF” position during this time.

Check the fireplace to make sure it is
leveled and properly positioned.
1. Choose the unit location.
2. Place the unit into position and secure it to the floor
with 1¹⁄₂” (38mm) screws or nails. Holes for securing
the unit to floor are located behind the access door
grille on the left and right sides of the unit.
3. Frame in the fireplace with a header across the top.
It is important to allow for the finished wall face
when setting the depth of the frame.
4. Attach the fireplace to the frame using the
adjustable frame drywall strips (located behind the
access door for shipping). Preset the depth to suit
the facing material of the wall. The strips are
adjustable to 1/2” (13mm), 5/8” (16mm) or
3/4” (19mm). (Fig. 5)
5. Screw through the slotted holes in the drywall strip
and into predrilled holes in fireplace side. Measure
from face of fireplace to the face of the drywall strip to
confirm the final depth.

Gas Line Installation
Remote ON/ OFF Switch Installation
When purging the gas lines, the front
glass must be removed.
The gas pipeline can be brought in through the side of
the fireplace as well as the bottom. Knockouts are
provided on the bottom behind the valve to allow for the
gas pipe installation and testing of any gas connection.
It is most convenient to bring the gas line in from the
rear right side of the valve as this allows fan installation
or removal without disconnecting the gas line.
The gas line connection can be made with properly
tinned 3/8” copper tubing, 3/8” rigid pipe or an approved flex connector. Since some municipalities have
additional local codes, it is always best to consult your
local authority and the CSA-B149.1 installation codes.
Do not wire the remote ON/OFF wall
switch for this gas appliance into a 120 V
power supply.
1. Thread the wiring through the electrical knockout
located on either side of the unit. Take care not to
cut the wire or insulation on metal edges. Ensure
the wire is secured and protected from possible
damage. Run one end to the gas control valve and
the other end to the conveniently located wall
switch.
2. Attach the wire to the ON/ OFF switch and install the
switch into the receptacle box. Attach the cover
plate to the switch.
3. Connect the wire to the gas control valve. (Fig. 7)
For USA installations consult the current National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.

for leak testing.
Alternate Switch Location
The remote switch can be installed on either side of the
access door. Mount the switch to the bracket provided
and screw the bracket to either side of the frame, using
the pre-punched holes. (Fig. 8)
The fireplace valve must not be
subjected to any test pressures
exceeding 1/2 p.s.i. Isolate or disconnect
this or any other gas appliance control
from the gas line when pressure testing.
The gas control is equipped with a captured screw type
pressure test point; therefore, it is not necessary to
provide a 1/8” test point upstream of the control.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings. Always provide a union when using
black iron pipe so that the gas line can be easily
disconnected for burner or fan servicing. (Fig. 6) See
the gas specifications for pressure details and ratings.

How to Use the Vent Graph
The Vent Graph should be read in conjunction with the
following vent installation instructions to determine the
relationship between the vertical and horizontal
dimensions of the vent system.
1. Determine the height of the center of the horizontal
vent pipe exiting through the outer wall. Using this
dimension on the Sidewall Vent Graph below, locate
the point intersecting with the slanted graph line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical
line to the bottom of the graph.
3. Select the indicated dimension, and position the
fireplace in accordance with same.
Example A:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the fireplace is 11’ (3.4m), the horizontal run to the face of
the outer wall must not exceed 14’ (4.3m).
Example B:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is
7’ (2.14m), the horizontal run to the face of the outer
wall must not exceed 8¹⁄₂’ (2.6m).

Combustible Walls: Cut a 10³⁄₈” H x 9³⁄₈” W
(265 x 240mm) hole through the exterior wall and
frame as shown.
Noncombustible Walls: Hole opening should be
7¹⁄₂” (190mm) in diameter.
Zero clearance sleeve is required only
for combustible walls.
Step 2
Measure wall thickness and cut zero clearance sleeve
parts to proper length (maximum 12” / 305mm). Assemble sleeve to its maximum opening (10³⁄₈” x
9³⁄₈”)(265 x 240mm), and attach to firestop with #8

It is not necessary to seal the 45° elbow to the starter
pipe or termination in the straight out and 45° installation in Figure 19.
It is critical that there is no downward
slope away from the appliance when
connecting the vent or elbow.
Step 5
Guide the venting through the vent hole as you place
the appliance in its installed position. Guide the 4”

The Vent Graph (Page 14), showing the relationship
between vertical and horizontal side wall venting, will
help to determine the various dimensions allowable.
Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible materials is 1” (25mm) on top, bottom and
sides unless otherwise noted.
When vent termination exits through foundations less
than 20” (508mm) below siding outcrop, the vent pipe
must flush up with the siding.
It is best to position the fireplace so the number of
offsets and horizontal vent length are minimized.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent
pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace (or the top of
the Transition Elbow) to the face of the outer wall.
Horizontal plane means no vertical rise exists on this
portion of the vent assembly.
When installing the appliance as a rear
vent unit, the 90° or 45° transition elbow
attached directly to the rear of the unit is
NOT INCLUDED in the following criteria
and calculations, and unless specifically
mentioned, are to be ignored when
calculating venting layouts.
FP1177
Fig. 24 Maximum horizontal run with no rise.
• If a 90° elbow is used in the horizontal vent run
(level height maintained), the horizontal vent length
is reduced by 36” (914 mm). (Fig. 25a and
Fig. 25b) This does not apply if the 90° elbow is
used to increase or redirect a vertical rise. (Fig. 25b)
Example: According to the Vent Graph (Page 14), the
maximum horizontal vent length in a system with a 7.5’
(2.3m) vertical rise is 20’ (6m) and if a 90° elbow is
required in the horizontal vent it must be reduced to 17’

Step 4
Apply a bead of silicone to the inner and outer flue
collars of the fireplace and using appropriate length of
pipe section(s) attach to fireplace with three (3)
screws. Follow with the installation of the inner and
outer elbow, again securing joints as described in the
‘Connecting Vent Pipe’ section.
Alternatives to screwing the termination directly to the
wall is using either expanding plugs or an approved
exterior construction adhesive. Or, you could attach the
termination with screws through the inner body into the
4” vent pipe, however, for this latter method, extend
the 4” pipe approximately 6” (152mm) beyond the outer
face of the wall.
Support horizontal pipes every 3’
(91cm) with metal pipe straps.

Measure the horizontal length requirement including a
2” (51mm) overlap; i.e., from the elbow to the outside
wall face plus 2” (51mm), or the distance required if
installing a second 90° elbow. (Fig. 30)
Always install horizontal venting on a
level plane.
Step 6
Use appropriate length of pipe sections, telescopic or
fixed, and install. The sections which go through the
wall are packaged with the starter kit, and can be cut to
suit if necessary.
NOTE: Sealing vent pipe and firestop gaps with
high temperature sealant will restrict cold air being
drawn in around fireplace.

Below Grade Installation
When it is not possible to meet the required vent
terminal clearances of 12” (305mm) above grade level,
a snorkel termination is recommended. It allows
installation depth down to 7” (178mm) below grade
level. The 7” (178mm) is measured from the center of
the horizontal vent pipe as it penetrates through the
wall.
NOTE: Ensure that sidewall venting clearances are
observed. If venting system is installed below
ground, a window well with adequate and proper
drainage to be installed around the termination
area is recommended.
10002428
Vermont Castings, Majestic Products DVRT36/ 39/ 43
If installing a snorkel, a minimum 24” (610mm) vertical
rise is necessary. The maximum horizontal run with the
24” (610mm) vertical pipe is 36” (915mm). This measurement is taken from the collar of the fireplace (or
transition elbow) to the face of the exterior wall. Refer
to the Sidewall Venting Graph for extended horizontal
run if the vertical exceeds 24” (610mm).
1. Establish vent hole through the wall. (Page 17, Fig.
27)
2. Remove soil to a depth of approximately 16”
(406mm) below base of snorkel. Install drain pipe.
Install window well (not supplied). Refill hole with
12” (305mm) of coarse gravel, leaving a clearance
of approximately 4” (102mm) below snorkel. (Fig.
31)
3. Install vent system.
4. Ensure a watertight seal is made around the vent
pipe coming through the wall.
5. Apply high temperature sealant caulking (supplied)
around the 4” and 7” snorkel collars.
6. Slide the snorkel into the vent pipes and secure to
the wall.
7. Level the soil so as to maintain a 4” (102mm)
clearance below snorkel. (Fig. 31)

1 x 45° elbows = 8.5’ (2.6m)
2 x 45° elbows = 7’ (2.1m)
•
•
A minimum of an 8’ (2.5m) vertical rise is required.
Two (2) sets of 45° elbows offsets may be used
within the vertical sections. From 0 to a maximum of
8’ (2.5m) of vent pipe can be used between elbows.
(Fig. 34)
• 7DVCS supports offsets. (Fig. 34) This application
requires you to first determine the roof pitch and
use the appropriate starter kit. See Venting
Components List.
• The maximum angular variation allowed in the
system is 270°. (Fig. 34)
• Minimum height of the vent above the highest point
of penetration through the roof is 2’ (610mm). (Fig.
37) See Note 2 on Page 12.
7. Install roof support and roof flashing, making sure
the upper flange is below the shingles. (Fig. 36)
8. Install appropriate pipe sections until the venting is

3. Materials needed for the gravity ducting installation:
• (2) 5” dia. duct to grille connector boots
• (2) Wall Outlet grilles
• 5” dia. rigid (“C” vent) or 5” dia. flexible metal
ducting
• 5” dia. elbows (maximum of 3 per run)
4. Remove the gravity duct plugs from the top of the
DVRT43 by taking out the two (2) screws around the
perimeter of each plug, then removing the plugs
from the fireplace.
NOTE: Do not remove the center screw from
the plugs.
5. Install 5” rigid (C-Vent) or flexible metal ducting on
the DVRT43 and run the ducting, observing the
limitations shown in the graph. Be aware that flexible
ducting is more restrictive to air flow than rigid
ducting.
6. Secure all joints with three (3) sheet metal screws.
Seal all joints with foil-faced aluminium tape to
prevent heat loss and maintain maximum air flow.
7. Ensure the following clearances are maintained
when installing the DVRT43 Gravity Ducting System.
Fig. 38 Roof flashing.
The Gravity Ducting System is only
applicable if installing the DVRT43 Direct
Vent Fireplace.
Installation of the DVRT43 fireplace provides an
opportunity to heat either rooms on an upper level or
adjacent rooms on the same level without the use of a
blower. However, with the internal blower installed, there
will be some increase in warm air movement to rooms
serviced by the gravity duct. (Fig. 39 and Fig. 40)
1. Plan the gravity duct run first. Use the following
graph (Fig. 39) to ensure that the installation meets
the recommendations. There is a maximum number
of three (3) elbows in a run, however, the run must
never go in a downward direction, as this can trap
heat in the gravity vent system. Be aware when
designing the ducting system that elbows will restrict
airflow. Minimize the use of elbows in any
installation.
2. It is recommended that the gravity ducting system
be installed so that the grilles exit at the same
vertical level. If the gravity venting system is
installed so the ducting exits at different levels, a
chimney effect may occur, resulting in uneven heat
distribution.
Clearance between ducting and combustibles = 1”
(25mm)
Clearance between grille adapter and combustibles =
0” (0mm)
Never allow a downward slope in any
section of the ducting.

Glass Cleaning
It is necessary to periodically clean the glass panel. It
is normal for condensation to form on the inside of the
glass during start-up. This condensation causes lint,
dust, and other airborne particles to cling to glass
surface. Also, initial paint curing may deposit a slight
film on the glass.
Cleaning the glass two or three times within the first
few weeks of operation is recommended, using nonammonia based household cleaner and warm water, or
gas fireplace glass cleaner.
After the initial cleaning process, the glass should be
cleaned two or three times during each operating
season, depending on the environment in the house.
Clean the glass after the first two weeks
of operation.
Do not clean glass when it is hot.
Do not use abrasive cleaners.
Do not strike or slam the glass.

Troubleshooting the Gas Control System
SIT NOVA 820 MILLIVOLT VALVE
Note: Before trouble shooting the gas control system, be sure external gas shut off is in the “ON” position.
WARNING: BEFORE DOING ANY GAS CONTROL SERVICE WORK, REMOVE GLASS FRONT.
SYMPTOM
1. Spark ignitor will not light.
2. Pilot will not stay lit after
carefully following lighting
instructions.
3. Pilot burning; no gas to
main burner
4. Frequent pilot outage
problem
36
POSSIBLE CAUSES
CORRECTIVE ACTION
A. Defective or misaligned
electrode at pilot
Using a match, light pilot. If pilot lights, turn off
pilot and push the red button again. If pilot will not
light, check gap at electrode and pilot; it should be
1/8 in. to have a strong spark.
B. Defective ignitor
(Push Button)
Push Piezo Ignitor Button. Check for spark at
electrode and pilot. If no spark to pilot, and electrode wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
A. Defective pilot generator
(thermocouple); remote
wall switch
Check pilot flame. Must impinge on thermocouple/
thermopile. NOTE: This pilot burner assembly
utilizes both—a thermocouple and a thermopile.
The thermocouple operates the main valve
operation (On and Off). Clean and/ or adjust pilot
for maximum flame impingement on thermopile
and thermocouple.
B. Defective automatic valve
Turn valve knob to “Pilot.” Maintain flow to pilot;
millivolt meter should read greater than 10 mV. If
the reading is okay and the pilot does not stay On,
replace the gas valve. NOTE: An interrupter block
(not supplied) must be used to conduct this test.
A. Wall switch or wires defective
Check wall switch and wires for proper connections. Jumper wire across terminals at wall
switch; if burner comes on, replace defective wall
switch. If okay, jumper wires across wall switch
wires at valve. If burner comes on, wires are faulty
or connections are bad.
B. Thermopile may not be
generating sufficient
millivoltage
1. Be sure wire connections from thermopile at
gas valve terminals are tight and thermopile is
fully inserted into pilot bracket.
2. One of the wall switch wires may be grounded.
Remove wall switch wires from valve terminals;
if pilot now stays lit, trace wall switch wiring for
ground. May be grounded to fireplace or gas
supply.
3. Check thermopile with millivolt meter. Take
reading at thermopile terminals of gas valve.
Should read 250–300 millivolts (minimum 150)
while holding valve knob depressed in pilot
position and wall switch “Off.” Replace faulty
thermopile if reading is below specified minimum.
C. Plugged burner orifice
Check burner orifices for debris and remove.
D. Defective automatic valve
operator
Turn valve knob to “On;” place wall switch to “On.”
Millivolt meter should read greater than 100 mV. If
the reading is okay and the burner does not come
On, replace the gas valve.
A. Pilot flame may be too low
or blowing (high), causing the
pilot safety to drop out.
Clean and/ or adjust pilot flame for maximum flame
impingement on thermopile and thermocouple.
B. Possible blockage of the vent
terminal
Check the vent terminal for blockage (recycling the
flue gases).
