• Any change to this heater or its controls can be dangerous.
• Improper installation or use of the heater can cause serious injury or death from fire,
burns, explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Do not allow fans to blow directly into the fireplace. Avoid any drafts that alter burner
flame patterns.
• Do not use a blower insert, heat exchanger insert or other accessory, not approved
for use with this heater where applicable.
1. Due to high temperatures, the appliance should be
located out of traffic and away from furniture and
draperies.
2. Children and adults should be alerted to the hazard
of high surface temperature and should stay away
to avoid burns or clothing ignition.
3. Young children should be carefully supervised when
they are in the same room with the appliance.
4. Do not place clothing or other flammable material on
or near the appliance.
5. Any safety screen or guard removed for servicing an
appliance, must be replaced prior to operating the
heater.
6. Installation and repair should be done by a qualified
service person.
7. To prevent malfunction and/or sooting, an unvented
gas heater should be cleaned before use and at least
annually by a professional service person. More frequent cleaning may be required due to excessive lint
from carpeting, bedding material, etc. It is imperative
that control compartments, burners and circulating air
passageways be kept clean.
8. CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING: Early signs of
carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to the flu with
headaches, dizziness and/or nausea. If you have these
signs, obtain fresh air immediately. Have the heater
serviced as it may not be operating properly.
9.
The installation must conform with local codes or, in the
absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z223.l/NFPA54.
10. This unit complies with the latest revision of ANSI Z21.11.2
Unvented Heaters and also complies with ANSI Z21.60
Decorative Vented Appliances for Solid Fuel Burning Fire70D0004
places. State and local codes may only allow operation
of this appliance in a vented configuration. Check your
state or local codes. For vented operation, see “Vented
Instructions” in this manual.
11. Do not install the heaters in a bathroom or bedroom.
12. Correct installation of the ceramic fiber logs, proper location of the heater, and annual cleaning are necessary to
avoid potential problems with sooting. Sooting, resulting from improper installation or operation, can settle
on surfaces outside the fireplace. See log placement
instructions for proper installation.
13. Avoid any drafts that alter burner flame patterns. Do not
allow fans to blow directly into fireplace. Do not place
a blower inside burn area of firebox. Ceiling fans may
create drafts that alter burner flame patterns. Sooting
and improper burning will occur.
14. Caution: Candles, incense, oil lamps, etc. produce
combustion byproducts including soot. Vent-free appliances will not filter or clean soot produced by these types
of products. In addition, the smoke and/or aromatics
(scents) may be reburnt in the vent-free appliance which
can produce odors. It is recommended to minimize the
use of candles, incense, etc. while the vent-free appliance is in operation.
15. This is an unvented gas-fired heater. It uses air (oxygen)
from the room in which it is installed. Provisions for
adequate combustion and ventilation air must be provided. See page 8.
16. Keep room area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
17. Unvented gas heaters are a supplemental zone
heater. They are not intended to be the primary
heating appliance.
Continued on page 4
Continued from page 3
18. Unvented gas heaters emit moisture into the living
area. In most homes of average construction, this
does not pose a problem. In houses of extremely tight
construction, additional mechanical ventilation is recommended.
19. During manufacturing, fabricating and shipping, various
components of this appliance are treated with certain
oils, films or bonding agents. These chemicals are not
harmful but may produce annoying smoke and smells
as they are burned off during the initial operation of the
appliance; possibly causing headaches or eye or lung
irritation. This is a normal and temporary occurrence.
The initial break-in operation should last two to three
hours with the burner at the highest setting. Provide
maximum ventilation by opening windows or doors to
allow odors to dissipate. Any odors remaining after this
initial break-in period will be slight and will disappear
with continued use.
20. Input ratings are shown in BTU per hour and are for
elevations up to 2,000 feet. For elevations above 2,000
feet, input ratings should be reduced 4 percent for each
1,000 feet above sea level. Refer to the National Fuel
Gas Code.

ADEQUATE COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION AIR
This heater shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight construction unless provisions are provided
for adequate combustion and ventilation air.
The National Fuel Gas Code, (ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54), defines a confined space as a space whose volume is
less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 BTU per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances
installed in that space. An unconfined space is defined as a space whose volume is not less than 50 cubic feet per
1,000 BTU per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space. Rooms
communicating directly with the space in which the appliances are installed, through openings not furnished with
doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where…
a) walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder with a rating of 1 perm
(6 x 1011 kg per pa-sec-m2) or less with openings gasketed or sealed;
b) weather striping has been added on openable windows and doors, and
c) caulking or sealants are applied to areas such as joints around window and door frames, between sole
plates and floors, between wall-ceiling joints, between wall panels, at penetrations for plumbing, electrical,
and gas lines, and at other openings.

WARNING
Figure 3 - Reference Drawing of a Natural Flame Log Set in an Enclosure
Barriers such as the bottom of a glass door frame placed in front of a gas log set can
change the air flow characteristics of the fireplace which in turn can cause the unit to
overheat and malfunction.
NOTE: Non combustible material such as refractory brick may be used to line the floor of the fireplace
in order to raise the height of the gas log set in relation to a restrictive barrier. If the unit is raised, the
minimum height dimension listed in the homeowner’s manual must not be exceeded.
NOTE: If the log set is equipped with a remote receiver, a restrictive barrier may reduce the battery life by
increasing the ambient temperature inside the fireplace. Placement of the receiver outside of the fireplace
will extend the battery life.

when you adjust the controls. Movement of unit may cause shifting of the gas logs which
leads to sooting and improper burning. Grate movement could cause a gas leak.
Special care is required if you are installing the unit into a sunken fireplace. You must raise
the fireplace floor to allow access to gas log controls. This will insure adequate air flow
and guard against sooting. Raise the fireplace floor using noncombustible materials, as
described in Placement in a Fireplace with Restrictive Barrier on page 10.
Assembly procedure:
1. Center the gas log unit on the fireplace or firebox. Make certain the front of the burner sits inside the front edge of the
fireplace or firebox.
2. Anchor holes are located on the right and left sides of the unit. After centering the burner correctly, mark the hole positions on the fireplace/firebox floor. Drill two (2) 5/32" diameter holes approximately 11/2" deep.
3. Anchor the burner to the fireplace/firebox floor using the screws provided. See Figure 14.
Proper installation of the grate is essential to prevent any movement of the gas logs and controls during operation.

CONNECTING THE GAS
CAUTION
NOTICE: A qualified gas appliance installer must connect the heater to the gas supply. Consult all local
codes.
Use new black iron or steel pipe. Internally tinned copper or copper tubing can be used
per National Fuel Code, section 2.6.3, providing gas meets hydrogen sulfide limits, and
where permitted by local codes. Gas piping system must be sized to provide minimum
inlet pressure (Listed on Data Plate) at the maximum flow rate (BTU/Hr). Undue pressure
loss will occur if the pipe is too small.
A manual shutoff valve must be installed upstream of the appliance. Union tee and
plugged 1/8" NPT pressure tapping point should be installed upstream of the appliance.

CAUTION
IMPORTANT: Hold heater valve firmly with a wrench to prevent movement when connecting to inlet pipe.
Check gas type: The gas supply must be the same as stated on the heater’s rating plate.
If the gas supply is different, DO NOT INSTALL THE HEATER. Contact your dealer for the
correct model.
Always use an external regulator for all propane/LPG heaters and high pressure one to two-pound systems
only, to reduce the supply tank pressure to a maximum of 13" w.c. This is in addition to the internal regulator in
the heater valve.

warning
CHECKING GAS PRESSURE
Connecting directly to an
unregulated propane/LPG tank
can cause an explosion.
The heater gas inlet connection is a 3/8" NPT at the valve. On
all control type units, the inlet connection is on the right side of
unit. To connect from the opposite side, route the pipe around
the back portion of the unit.
When tightening up the joint to the valve, hold the valve
securely to prevent movement.
Test all gas joints from the gas meter to the heater valve for leaks using a gas analyzer or soap and water solution after
completing connection. DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME.
Check the gas pressure with the appliance burning and the control set to HIGH.
Test Port “OUT”
Milli-VOLT Valve Control (Figure 16)
The valve regulator controls the burner pressure
which should be checked at the pressure test
point.
Turn captured screw counter clockwise two or three
turns and then place tubing to pressure gauge over
test point (Use test point “OUT” closest to control
knob). After taking pressure reading, be sure and
turn captured screw clockwise firmly to re-seal. Do
not over torque. Check for gas leaks.

FLAME APPEARANCE
CAUTION
Placing the decorative rock
DO NOT sprinkle volcanic rock on the logs, around the pilot, or on or near burners. This
may cause sooting. Place volcanic rock only on the floor of the fireplace.
During initial operation of the new heater, burning logs will give off a paper burning smell
and orange flames will be present. Simply open the windows for a few hours to vent the
odor.
Flames from the pilot and burner should be visually checked as soon as the heater is installed. In addition,
periodically check the flames visually during operation.
Checking the pilot flame
The pilot flame must always be present when the heater is in operation. It should just touch the top of the
thermocouple tip for natural. See Figure 33 for correct pilot flame.
If the pilot flame does not touch the thermocouple, then the main burner cannot function reliably. See Figure 34
for incorrect shape of pilot flame.

CHECKING THE BURNER FLAME
In normal operation at full rate after 15 minutes, the following flame appearances should be observed:
Figure 35 - Correct Appearance of Rear Flames of Charred Timber
Burner will have a random pattern of yellow flames as shown in Figure 35. There should be glowing embers on the
front burner. Note: The front flames and embers will be an opaque orange color during the burn off time.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Avoid any drafts that alter burner flame patterns. Do not allow fans to blow directly into the fireplace. Do not
place a blower inside the burn area of the firebox. Ceiling fans may create drafts that alter flame patterns. Sooting
and improper burning will result.
During manufacturing, fabricating and shipping, various components of this appliance are treated with certain oils,
films or bonding agents. These chemicals are not harmful, but may produce annoying smoke and smells as they
are burned off during the initial operation of the appliance, possibly causing headaches or eye or lung irritation.
This is a normal and temporary occurrence.
The initial break-in operation should last six hours with the burner at the highest setting. Provide maximum ventilation by opening windows or doors to allow odors to dissipate. Any odors remaining after this initial break-in will
be slight and will disappear with continued use.
This appliance must not be used with glass doors in the closed position. This can lead to pilot outages and severe
sooting outside the fireplace. See Figure 3, page 10.
