SAFETY NOTICE: If this heater is not properly installed a house fire may result. For your safety, follow the
installation directions. Contact local building or fire officials about restrictions and installation inspection
requirements in your area.
Read these rules and the instructions carefully.
1.
Check with local codes. The installation comply
with their rulings. Observe closely the clearances
to combustibles (page 4).
2.
Do not install this heater in a mobile home or
trailer.
3.
Always connect this heater to a chimney and vent
to the outside. Never vent to another room or
inside a building.
4.
Do not connect a wood burning heater to a Type
B gas vent. This is not safe and is prohibited by
the National Fire Protection Association Code.
This heater requires approved masonry or UL,
ULC Listed Residential Type and Building Heating Appliance Chimney. Use a 6" diameter chimney or larger, that is high enough to give a good
draft.
10.
Disposal of Ashes- Place ashes in a metal
container with a tight fitting lid. Keep the closed
container on a non-combustible floor or on the
ground, well away from all combustible materials. Keep the ashes in the closed container
until all cinders have thoroughly cooled. The
ashes may be buried in the ground or picked up
by a refuse collector.
5.
Be sure that your chimney is safely constructed
and in good repair. Have the chimney inspected
by the Fire Department or a qualified inspector.
Your insurance company may be able to recommend a qualified inspector.
11.
CAUTION- The special paints used on your
heater may give off some smoke while they are
curing during the first few fires. Build small fires
at first.
12.
6.
Inspect chimney connector and chimney twice
monthly during the heating season for any deposit of creosote or soot which must be removed
(see Chimney Maintenance, page 9).
7.
Provide air for combustion from outside the house
into the room where the heater is located. If the
intake is not in the same room, air must have free
access in to the room.
CARING FOR PAINTED PARTS- This heater
has a painted jacket, which is durable but it will
not stand rough handling or abuse. When
installing your heater, use care in handling.

Uncrate and/or unpack the heater, removing all packing material, being careful not to dispose of the Parts
Bag.
Open the front feed door and remove the parts from
inside the stove. You should find the following: Hearth
Plate (1); Solid Damper (1); Lids (2); Pivoting Top (1);
Lid Support (1); Parts Package (1) containing nuts,
bolts, door handle, door latch and securing hardware;
Legs (4); Cast Iron Collar (1); Cast Iron Damper (1);
Baffle Assembly (1); Lid Lifter (1).
Place cardboard or other soft material adjacent to the
stove and carefully turn the stove onto its top side
(bottom facing up).
Attach hearth plate to the front of the stove in its proper
location.
Attach both rear and front legs to the stove. Tighten the
nuts and bolts securely. The stove may now be
CAREFULLY turned over to stand on it four legs.
Attach the baffle assembly and flue collar to the stove
by inserting the baffle studs through the two holes
located on the top of the rear of the stove; place the flue
collar over the studs and mount using the proper nuts
and washers. Place lid support and lid in position on
pivoting top. Place the slide damper in position on the
top of the hearth plate and under the feed door, and
secure with screw in slot.
After consulting the installation instructions for minimum clearances to combustibles, locate your floor
protector accordingly and carefully place the stove in
your selected location. Install stove pipe, elbows and
thimble as necessary, utilizing either a recently
cleaned and inspected masonry chimney (properly
lined) or a UL/ULC Listed chimney. Insure that the
damper provided is installed in the flue collar.
Again, check the following illustrations and be sure
you have the clearances shown from the heater and
the connector pipe to combustible surfaces. If you
have a solid brick or stone wall behind your heater,
you may place your heater as close as you wish to the
wall. However, if the wall is only faced with brick or
stone, consider it a combustible wall.
If your chimney drafts excessively, purchase and use
a Barometric Draft Regulator (DR6 available from
factory).
The chimney connection should be as short as possible, and the heater must have its own flue. Do not
connect this unit to a chimney flue serving other
appliances.
Use three sheet metal screws in each stove pipe and
or elbow joint to firmly hold the pipe together.
Do not install this heater in a mobile home or trailer.
Check your local building and insurance codes. The
installation must comply with their rulings.

MASONRY CHIMNEY
The masonry chimney must comply with UL/ULC codes. Before
using an existing masonry chimney, clean the chimney and inspect
the flue liner to be sure it is safe to use. Make repairs before
attaching the heater. See Page 3, Item 5. Look at Fig. 5. The
connector pipe and fittings you will need to connect directly to a
masonry chimney are shown. If the connector pipe must go
through a combustible wall before entering the masonry chimney,
consult a qualified mason or chimney dealer. The installation must
conform to local fire codes, and NFPA 211(USA) or CAN/CSAB365-M91(CANADA). Do not connect this heater into the same
chimney flue as the fireplace or flue from another heater. The
chimney used for a heater must not be used to ventilate the cellar
or basement. If there is a cleanout opening at the base of the
chimney, close it tightly.
UL/ULC LISTED CHIMNEY
Carefully follow chimney manufacturer's instructions. Use only listed
type HT per UL 103, or ULC S629, 6-in diameter black or blued chimney
connector, minimum 24 gauge steel. If your chimney starts at the
ceiling (Fig. 7), you will need enough 6" pipe to reach the ceiling.
The top of the chimney must be at least 3 feet above the roof and be
at least 2 feet higher than any point of the roof within 10 feet. (Fig 6)
RULES FOR CONNECTOR PIPE INSTALLATION
1. Crimped end of the pipe must be installed toward the heater.
The pipe should slide into the flue collar. The pipe should be
firmly attached to the flue collar with 3 screws and sealed with
furnace cement.
2. Slope any horizontal pipe upward toward the chimney at least
1/4 " inch for each foot of horizontal run.
3. You must have at least 18" inches clearance between any
horizontal piping and the ceiling. (Fig. 2)
4. The pipe cannot extend into the chimney flue. (Fig. 7)
5. Seal each connector pipe joint with furnace cement. Also seal
the pipe at the chimney.
6. Use 3 sheet metal screws at each joint to make the piping rigid.
7. It is recommended that no more than two (2) 90 degree bends
be used in the stove pipe installation as more than two (2) may
decrease the amount of draw and possibly cause smoke
spillage.
NOTE: The chimney connector shall not pass through an
attic, roof space, floor, ceiling, or similar concealed space.
Where passage through a wall or partition of combustible
construction is desired, the installation must conform with
CAN/CSA - B365.

If the chimney connector does not have to pass through a combustible wall to get to a masonry chimney, simply connect
the chimney connector directly to the masonry chimney's chimney thimble as described and shown by parts C and D of
Figure 8. Remember, the chimney connector should extend into the chimney thimble to the innerface of the chimney flue
but not beyond; if the chimney connector is extended through the chimney thimble into the chimney flue, resistance to the
flow of smoke and gases up the chimney will occur; that flow resistance will have an adverse affect on the operation and
performance of the heater and venting system.

Service Hints
Do not expect a heater to draw. It is the chimney that creates
the draft. Smoke spillage into the house or excessive buildup
of water or creosote in the chimney are warnings that the
chimney is not functioning properly. Correct problem before
using heater. Possible causes are:
1.
The connector pipe may push into the chimney too far,
stopping the draft. (Fig. 7)
2.
Do not connect two heaters into the same chimney flue.
3.
The chimney used for a heater must not be used to
ventilate the cellar or basement. If there is a cleanout
opening at the base of the chimney, It must be closed
tightly.
4.
If the chimney is operating too cool, water will condense
in the chimney and run back into the stove. Creosote
formation will be rapid and may block the chimney.
Operate the heater at a high enough fire to keep the
chimney warm preventing this condensation.
5.
If the fire burns well but sometimes smokes or burns
slowly, it may be caused by the chimney top being lower
than another part of the house or a nearby tree. The wind
blowing over a house or tree, falls on top of the chimney
like water over a dam, beating down the smoke. The top
of the chimney should be at least 3 feet above the roof
and be at least to 2 feet higher than any point of the roof
within 10 feet (Fig. 6).
Chimney Maintenance
Creosote - Formation and Need for Removal
If creosote has accumulated, it should be removed. Failure to
remove creosote may cause a house fire. Creosote may be
removed by using a chimney brush or other commonly
available materials.
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other
organic vapors, which combine with expelled moisture to
form 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.
Chimney fires burn very hot. If the chimney connector should
glow red, immediately call the fire department, then reduce
the fire by closing the inlet air control and pour a large quantity
of coarse salt, baking soda or cool ashes on top of the fire in
the firebox. CAUTION: A chimney fire may cause ignition of
wall studs or rafters which you thought were a safe distance
from the chimney. If you have a chimney fire, have your
chimney inspected by a qualified person before using again.
The chimney connector and chimney should be inspected at
least twice monthly during the heating season to determine
if a creosote buildup has occurred.
