Maintenance
CAUTIONS
 Fireplace gas control must be in the “OFF” position and pilot
and main burners extinguished when cleaning appliance with
a vacuum.
 Doors and logs can get very hot. Handle only when cool.
General
 Have the fireplace installation inspected yearly, including a visual
check of the insert and vent system, the burner and the pilot flame.
For your convenience a 1/8" manifold pressure tap is supplied on
the gas valve for a test gauge connection. See Figure 13.
For Natural Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure
of 5.5" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C.
For Propane Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure of 11" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 10" W.C.
 Always keep the fireplace area clear and free of combustible
materials, as well as gasoline and other flammable vapours and
liquids.
 Do not use this appliance if any part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the appliance
and to replace any part of the control system and any gas control
which has been under water.
Cleaning
WARNING:
Do not attempt to clean glass when hot.
Do not clean glass with abrasive materials as any glass etching may cause premature glass failure.
When the fireplace is first activated, there may be some smoking and
a visible film may be left on the glass. This is a normal condition, and
is the result of burning of protective coatings on new metal.
 Glass must be cleaned periodically to remove any film (which is a
normal by-product of combustion) which may be visible. Film can
easily be removed by removing the door, see Figure 11a - 11b.
Handle the door carefully, and clean it with nonabrasive glass
cleaners. One of the most effective products is Kel Kem.
 Silicone seals on inner door during initial firing will "off gas", leaving a visual deposit of a white substance on combustion chamber walls. This can easily be removed using normal household
products.
 Use a vacuum cleaner or whisk broom to keep the control compartment, burner, and firebox free from dust and lint.  The logs may be cleaned periodically with a vacuum to remove
dirt, dust and other contaminates. If the logs shift during cleaning,
refer to Figures 12a - 12c for proper positioning.
