WARNING: Cover must be removed when burner is in operation. This appliance is equipped with a piezo electric ignition device. Be aware and look for proof of ignition spark. If there is not ignition spark replace piezo ignitor device –OR‐ light pilot manually. Page 6 of 22
Inspect the hose assembly for damage prior to each use. If the hose is damaged or there are signs of excessive abrasion or wear replace the hose. Use only the pressure regulator and hose assembly supplied with the appliance. Replace the regulator hose assembly only with part number UFP LP12‐08 these are available only from approved dealer ‐OR‐ Urban Fire. The specific size of cylinder(s) to be used with this gas fireplace is recommended not to be below or exceed 20 lbs. (9 kg) capacity. Ensure cylinder is secured, upright, on a level non‐combustible base. If a larger TC or DOT cylinder is to be used. Ensure that the cylinder is safely secured, upright on a non‐combustible base, located a minimum of 10ft from the fireplace and in a ventilated space. Do not place a propane cylinder for use with this appliance on a non‐
combustible base ‐ even snow. Snow around the base of the cylinder foot ring could melt and the cylinder could fall over delivering liquid propane to the unit. Do not connect, activate or disconnect this fireplace to a propane cylinder anytime while consuming alcohol. Failure to do so could result in fire causing bodily harm or loss of life.

LP GAS CYLINDER INSTALLATION
Tank Stabilizer
LP GAS CYLINDER CONNECTION Figure 1
The LP cylinder must include a collar to protect the cylinder valve.
The cylinder supply system must be arranged for vapor withdrawal. This appliance uses a “Type 1”
cylinder connection device. See above for proper connection instructions.
When disconnecting and removing the gas cylinder, from the appliance, always be sure to adhere to
the following items:
• Check that the gas control valve on the appliance, as well as on the cylinder are turned off before
disconnecting the gas line from the cylinder.
• Never smoke or have an open flame in the vicinity of the gas appliance or gas cylinder.
• When connection a new gas supply cylinder, be sure to tighten all connections and leak test
the connections with a soapy water solution.

How to Leak Test Your Appliance
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Mix a solution of liquid soap and water in a small container. 50% soap and 50% water.
Make sure that the gas supply is turned on. For LP gas appliances make sure that the valve on
the gas cylinder is turned on.
Ensure that the gas control valve on the appliance is in the “OFF” position.
Use a spray bottle or a small brush and liberally apply the solution to the gas line and to each
connection.
If bubbles form this means that there is a leak is present.
Tighten any connections that may be loose and leak test again.
If no more leaks are found use the appliance.
If leaks persist and cannot be stopped turn off the gas supply and contact your distributor or local
gas service technician for assistance.
To check for leaks on the hose, soak cloth with soap and water solution. Rub gas line hose
from end to end. If bubbles appear, identify leak and replace hose before next use.
WARNING: Do not use an open flame to test for gas leaks.

INSTALLATION & SAFETY NOTES
Read all instructions before starting installation and follow them carefully during installation to ensure
maximum benefit and safety. Failure to follow these instructions will void your warranty and may
present a fire hazard. See the warranty at the back of this manual for disclaimers regarding improper
installation. This outdoor fireplace and its components are tested and safe when installed in
accordance with this installation manual.
UNPACKING
Please check the appliance carefully for any damaged or missing components. Report any problems
to your dealer within 30 days of purchase.
MINIMUM CLEARANCES
The minimum clearance to combustibles for the sides and the top is 36” (914 mm).
This outdoor fireplace is suitable for installation on a combustible surface.
Clearances are in accordance with local installation codes and the requirements of the gas
supplier.
Page 10 of 22
INITIAL FIRING
When lit for the first time, the appliance may emit an odor resulting from evaporation of paint and
lubricants used in the manufacturing process. This is normal and will subside after the unit has run
for an hour or so.
MANIFOLD PRESSURE REGULATOR ADJUSTMENT
The manifold pressure regulator controls gas input and flame height, and is pre-adjusted at the
factory. No further adjustment is required.
PRIMARY AIR ADJUSTMENT
Aeration is factory set but may need adjustment for altitude or movement during shipping. The
adjustment for the air shutter is found on the mixing tube which is located underneath your appliance.
Loosen the screw which holds the aeration adjustment shutter in place and rotate the adjustment
shutter to increase or decrease primary air (see below) and tighten the screw. Increasing the primary
air will cause the flame to appear more transparent and blue. Decreasing the primary air will cause
the flames to appear more yellow or orange. Evaluate the aeration only after the unit has warmed up
approximately 15 minutes. If the unit shows signs of carbon build up increasing the primary air
should alleviate this problem.
Caution: Parts requiring adjustment during operation may be hot.
Aeration adjustment is important for the correct functioning of the appliance. Carbon build up, flame
lifting or any malfunction due to improper aeration adjustment during installation is not covered under
the factory warranty.

1. Using two adjustable wrenches disconnect propane hose, 3/8 flare fitting and propane pilot regulator as shown above. Using gas pipe compound, attach Natural Gas pilot regulator and 3/8 flare fitting. 4. Remove orifice by removing support nut attached to bracket. 5. Remove LPG orifice tip and replace with NG (larger opening) orifice tip. 6. Reattach converted orifice to supporting bracket with nut. Leak check with a soap and water solution. Page 14 of 22
7. Take protective cover box off of the pilot assembly by removing the mounting screws located on the top side of the pilot assembly. This will allow you to access the pilot assembly. Take an adjustable wrench and loosen the pilot flame counter clockwise. This will allow you access to the pilots’ orifice. 8. Slide tab to Natural Gas position (slightly larger hole). Re‐fasten pilot flame with wrench clockwise. Soap check. Page 15 of 22
