Congratulations! You have just bought the stove HAAS + SOHN, a top-quality product.
Thank you very much for your interest and purchase. Kindly read the Operating
Instructions to find out comprehensive information about the function, correct use and
handling. We recommend you to read the instructions carefully in order to avoid any risk
related to likely damage. Proper operation and maintenance affects the service life of the
product as well. In addition, proper operation and fuel supply is connected with fuel savings
and environment protection. Technical specifications are included in the manual.
The manufacturer provides guarantee providing you adhere to the directions and
recommendations in the instructions for operation and maintenance. Keep the operating
instructions and technical card safe to be able to refresh your knowledge at the beginning
of the new heating season.
1. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
The fireplace stove is designed for heating in habitable rooms, recreational buildings, work
stations and other places to provide thermal comfort, while the visual effect – the
perception connected with flame – is similar to the sensation of live fire.
1.1. Heating concept
The fireplace stove is designed for burning wood, eco-fuel cakes and coal cakes (specific
types only) in a burning-through way, characteristic with very good firing conditions.
The air within the room is heated thus the thermal comfort is provided by heat convection,
in part by heat radiation as well. This way, you can heat up even very cold, long-time
unheated rooms very quickly. The concept of heating by means of heat convection is based
on the fact that the air in the room enters the fireplace stove at its bottom part, being heated
in the course of its way up inside the convection space consisting of a double shell of the
heating device. The air then flows through the holes in the upper part of the fireplace stove
back in the room. The radiation heat is generated by means of surface areas of the
fireplace stove (metal, ceramics, glass). Due to the construction, the biggest radiation heat
source is the glass door.
1.2. Construction design
The fireplace stove is welded of steel profiles, thickness 2-5 mm. In the middle of the
fireplace stove, there is a firing chamber that may be closed with a stocking door (equipped
with a self-acting element). The door is provided with special a large-area glass sheet,
thermal resistance up to 800 °C.
The inner space of the firing chamber is usually lined with fireclay brick shapes. The bricks
are not jointed with any filler (the reason is a protection of the bricks against damage by
thermic dilatation). The upper part of the firing chamber is equipped with partitions
designed for directing flue gases into a smoke outlet. The partitions may be fixed or
movable. Such movable partition may serve as a supporting holder for fireclay bricks. At
the bottom part of the firing chamber, a simple, fixed cast grate is installed. Before the
grate, a barrier is usually provided, to prevent from burning pieces falling out or onto the
door (front glass). Under the grate, there is a space designed for ashpan. The remaining
space at the bottom part of the fireplace stove may be used for spare fuel.
Fireplace stove casing is made of steel panels, ceramic tiles or lined of thick tiles. The
fireplace stove steel construction is protected with special refractory paint.
Caution! The fireplace stove is not designed for continuous heating but for
periodical – interrupted (i.e. temporary) operation.

2. FIRING PROCESS
2.1. Fuel quantity and firing process adjustments
Burning wood, wood cakes (or coal cakes – optional) in the fireplace stove is based on
burning through the fuel, which means that such firing takes place throughout the whole go
of the fuel at a time. In order to provide optimal conditions for easy kindling and burning
up, you need enough air being led under the fuel in fire, through the grate: this is the socalled primary air, and it must be always adjustable. By increasing temperature of the fuel
burning through, certain gaseous components of the fuel evolve that – unless additional air
is supplied – would be of no avail in terms of heat energy: therefore, additional air must be
provided at the flame level where the firing process connected with those gaseous
components may continue. Now, at this stage, the primary air is – in fact – not necessary,
while secondary air supply is required, or tertiary air may be added as well, respectively.
The secondary air supply, usually adjustable, improves the firing process and contributes to
the door glass self- cleaning. The tertiary air supply is designed for general improvement of
the firing process and is usually fixed (one cannot regulate it in any way). If the proportion
of the air volumes led into the particular sections of the firing chamber is correct, the
burning efficiency is increased while emission of pollutants in the environment is reduced.
The layout of the air supply regulative elements is shown in the Technical Cart (a part of
the documentation supplied with the fireplace stove).
Our models of fireplace stove may reach up to 85% efficiency – which means top
performance.
The heating capacity of the heating device depends on the fuel quantity burnt per defined
time, fuel quality and firing process efficiency. Using the Chart 2 (heating values) may
help you to make a picture of attainable capacity: let’s assume that you burn 1 kg of
wood per hour, wood humidity is 20%. Further, with higher wood moisture its heating
capacity goes down.
In the testing room conditions, adjustability of the heating device was tested, within 30 –
100% of nominal performance. For the regulation, the chimney effect and the fuel quantity
were applied. In practice, the heating capacity may be regulated by means of air supply
regulating elements (especially the primary air inlet). There is no simple and explicit way to
determine the firing process adjustment by means of regulators. There are many aspects to
consider – fuel moisture, type of fuel, chimney effect, exterior pressure conditions, etc.
Therefore, the firing process (the flame intensity and quality) should be re-adjusted for
particular conditions.
You will be able to adjust the firing process to achieve best efficiency after a short time of
operation. A detailed chart showing how to adjust the air supply regulating elements is
included in the technical specifications. The figures in the chart are the testing results
verified by the State Testing Laboratory. The Chart 1 presents just general information for
air supply adjustment.

Our tips for wood burning
Any time you set the fire, let the primary air regulator open long enough to allow the fuel
burning properly.
Before you re-load, it is recommended to open the primary air regulator wide.
While burning wood, make sure the wood is dry, maximum moisture 20%.
Our tips for coal cake burning (selected models only)
•
To achieve optimisation of the firing process, load the cakes directly onto the grate
holes: this way, you support the burning in best possible way.
•
Make sure you do not overload: for the heat capacity you may use, i.e. to maintain the
heat, a couple of cakes is enough: otherwise the device would suffer from excessive
heat. Coal cake fuel efficiency may reach 6 kWh/1 kg, i.e. by some 40% more
than wood!
2.2. Fuel
In fireplace stoves, you may burn logs, wood cakes and coal cakes (some models only).
The moisture of the wood to be burnt should be lower than 20%, optimally 10%. The rule of
thumb is: the less water in the fuel, the higher heating capacity you achieve. For the
recommended wood moisture, you may reach it safely if you store the wood in a well
ventilated shelter for at least two years. The water content in coal cakes should be
specified by the manufacturer. The cakes should be stored in a dry room otherwise they
disintegrate. It is recommended to store the wood intended for burning in pieces approx. 36 cm (diameter), 20–30 cm (length). It is forbidden to load and burn coal or charred
coal. In the fireplace, never burn flammable liquids or waste. It is forbidden to burn
papering, chipboards, plastic materials, penetrated wood, wood shavings or saw dust.
Burning such materials not only is detrimental to the environment but shortens the service
life of the heating device as well: you might seriously damage the device or the chimney as
well.
Note: The bark, a part of wooden logs, is no issue at all.

3.2. Safe distance between the fireplace stove and flammable
material
If you have installed the fireplace stove within the room with flammable objects,
flammability Class B, C1 and C2, the safety distance from the front (or side glass surfaces)
is 800 mm; for the other directions, the safety distance is 200 mm. If the fireplace stove is
installed within a room with flammable objects,7 flammability class C3, the safety distances
must be doubled. Kindly pay attention to the information provided in Supplement 1. The
most important installation dimensions are shown in the product name plate.
3.3. Safe distance between the smoke flue and flammable material
The safety distance from the door frame lining and similar constructions made of flammable
materials and from pipeline installations, incl. insulating elements is 200 mm (minimum).
The safety distance from the other parts of the constructions made of flammable materials
is minimum 400 mm. This is applied to building materials, flammable Class B, C1 and C2
(see Chart 3). Kindly pay attention to the information provided in Supplement 2. More
accurate classification is available only if testing is performed for the particular product.
3.4. Directions for safe operation
For firing or kindling, never use any flammable liquid! It is forbidden to burn any plastic
material, wooden material combined with chemicals (chipboard, etc.) or domestic
(unsorted) refuse containing plastic, etc.
The fireplace stove must be operated by adults only! Never allow children in the
room unattended. The surface of the fireplace stove is overheated, especially the
glassy components: any contact will cause serious burnt. During the operation,
occasional monitoring is required. For safe operation and handling the regulation elements
and the door closing devices, use the protective glove (a part of the supply).
Do not put any objects or tools on the fireplace stove while in operation or hot: flammable
material may cause fire. Do not put any vessels with cold liquid in the ceramic –tiled
fireplace stove while hot: the tiles might crack!
The ashpan must be manipulated with utmost care. The ash may be very hot so there is
danger of serious burnt. Hot ash must not be in contact with flammable material – for
example, while pouring it into waste container.
The fireplace stove must be operated in compliance with the directions and
recommendations in the Operating Instructions. It is forbidden to modify the
fireplace stove in any way unless approved by the manufacturer.

4. INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION TO THE CHIMNEY
Caution! For installation, relevant local regulations must be strictly adhered,
including the regulations related to national and European standards for this type of
device.
4.1. Connection to the chimney or chimney insert
Connection of the fireplace stove to the chimney vent is subjected to approval by specialist
chimney company (CSN 73 4201:2008), or to approval according to relevant regulations in
force in the country where the installation is made. Kindly pay attention to the information
provided in Supplement 2.
To provide proper function and operation, proper chimney effect in the smoke flue
neck is required. For the minimum stack draught, see the Technical Card for the particular
product. Insufficient chimney effect results in malfunction of the fireplace stove, excessive
dirt on the glass, and excessive clogging in the smoke flue system. The general heat
capacity of the device is reduced. If you feed the fire while proper chimney draught is not
provided, flue gases may spread throughout the room. For this reason, it is strictly
recommended to have regular check done by a specialist chimney company and maintain
the heating device regularly. If the chimney effect is too high over 20 Pa it is recommended
to install a suitable blocking device (for example, flue tube with a block). Excessive chimney
draught may cause troublesome operation, for example, too intensive burning, high fuel
consumption, damage on the heating device, etc.
Caution! It is recommended to connect the fireplace stove with rear outlet to the
chimney by direct connection (without an elbow element). Any other method of the
connection should be approved by a specialist chimney company.
4.2 Connecting the stove fireplase to the venting unit
It is recommended to connect the stove (insert) to a separate chimney vent. A joint
chimney vent may be used for the connection only if the safety regulations valid in the
country of installation allow doing so. It is forbidden to connect the stove (stove insert) to
the same vent used for a gas appliance. The minimum working height of the vent is 5 m.
Depending on local conditions, it is possible to connect the stove in the vent with a
working height under 5 m providing that the flue way calculation demonstrates that such a
height is satisfactory.
Caution! (Provisions CSN 73 42 01: 2008)
The smoke flue vent diameter must not exceed the diameter of the chimney vent; it must
not be narrowed towards the chimney, either. If the calculation demonstrates that the vent
diameter of the smoke flue and chimney can be smaller than the flue neck diameter of the
device, the diameter of the smoke flue will be reduced just after the flue neck of the
device, by means of a short transition or abrupt.
4.3. Directions for smoke flue installation and safety
Connect the smoke outlet neck with the chimney in the shortest possible way so that the
length of the smoke path is no longer than 1.5 m. The smoke pipes and the elbow piece
must be tightly connected, overlapping at least 60 mm. Pay special attention to the fact that
the joints must agree with the flue outflow. The joint between the smoke flue and the smoke
outlet neck must be drilled together and fixed with a rivet or pin; the same is applied for the
smoke pipes and the elbow. The hole (entrance point) in the chimney must be provided
with a metal stress ring (proper diameter). The smoke flue should ascent towards the
smoke uptake at angle approx. 10°.

4.4. Installation of the fireplace stove within the room
Before any installation work is started, you need to verify the floor (ceiling) load capacity.
The load conditions for the particular type of the device must be met (depending on the
particular weight). The fireplace stove must be installed on a heat insulating base that
overlaps the fireplace stove ground plan dimensions on the sides and in the rear by at least
100 mm; the overlap in the front (the direction of the feeding opening) is 300 mm. If a metal
base is used, the thickness must be at least 2 mm. Kindly pay attention to the information
provided in Supplement 1.
Caution! Make sure you provide space enough for easy approach to the device, smoke
flue and chimney for the purpose of cleaning.
4.5. Cleaning the heating device and chimney
In the course of the installation of the fireplace stove and connection to the chimney vent,
approach in the chimney for occasional cleaning of chimney pipes and the chimney as well
is required. By regular cleaning of the smoke pipes and the firing space in the fireplace
stove, you may optimise the performance of the heating system. By regular chimney
cleaning, you avoid inflammation of fouling solid particles caught on the chimney walling.
4.6 Fire in the chimney
In case of fire in the chimney, put out the fire in the stove immediately: remove the
burning fuel remnants with a shovel (put them aside in a suitable non-flammable
container) and call the fire brigade immediately: Call the fire brigade or the integrated
rescue system centre.
4.7. External combustion air supply system
For the firing process, enough fresh air supply is needed. While firing wood, the device
needs up to 15 m3 of fresh air per hour. In case of newly built houses, the insulating
materials used in the house result in low airiness coefficient for the house, due to plastic
windows, etc.). Another issue may be exhaust devices or other heat installations in
operation in the room or within the space where the fireplace is installed.
In such well-insulated houses, the quality of the firing process is lower, being accompanied
with tarring and smoke path clogging (and/or smoke penetration and spread in the room).
Make sure that the air supply in the room is sufficient, by open windows or door in the next,
better ventilated room. It is more convenient if you – along with the installation of the
heating device – install a ventilation hole to provide air supply, equipped with a regulating
grate (protected against clogging).
5. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
5.1. Before first operation
Before the first putting into operation, you have to remove labels from the glass,
accessories found in the ashpan or inside the hearth, including transport clamps etc.
Following the illustration in the Technical Card, check that the movable partitions designed
for directing the flue gases, fireclay brick shapes or the barrier are located properly (they
may have moved out of the position during the transportation or installation work). If you
find any wrong position, correct it; otherwise, the heating device might not work properly.
The fireplace stove surface layer is provided with fire-resistant paint being softened to
become harder after the first fire made in the fireplace stove. During the soft phase, pay
special attention to danger of damage on the surface by touching it with fingers, tools, etc.
For the very first use, the initial fire should be very small, to “warm up” the device gradually:
it is recommended to load smaller quantities to establish lower temperature. All materials
need the initial lower- temperature phase in order to “get used to” the thermal stress. By
10
such slow heating up, you avoid cracks in fireclay bricks, likely damage on surface paint or
material deformation in general. The odour generated during the paint hardening process at
the first putting into operation is just temporary – however, it is recommended to ventilate
the room intensively. If pets are present, move them to another room for a while.
With the models equipped with the glass door comprising of three parts, check the
segments for gaps (which may be formed during the transport or the first use).
What to do if you find a gap between the glass segments: Partially release the holder
nuts. Move the glass segments (carefully!) closer to each other: the edges should touch
slightly. Slowly and carefully, tighten up the holder nuts.
5.2. Setting the fire
To set the fire easily, follow this procedure: Put 2 or 3 smaller wooden logs onto the bottom
or on the grate. Add paper or permitted fire lighters, then brushwood, small firewood and
thicker logs (the last layer). You should always load a bigger quantity (i.e. enough wood,
which means up to approx. 2/3 of the height of the fireclay (vermiculite) lining. By loading
such bigger quantity, you establish time long enough in order to heat the chimney thus set
the proper conditions for the chimney function. Open the primary air regulator wide
(maximum). Sometimes it is good to reduce the secondary air supply at this moment – the
fuel catches the fire better. After setting the fire, keep the door shut all the time. As soon as
the wood flares up properly, use the air supply regulators to set not very intensive, rather
slow burning. To adjust the flame and the burning, you may apply the information specified
in the Technical Card or Chart 1.
You may poke the fire when needed, using the fire hook or the poking lever (if installed).
Caution! The stoking door (the firing chamber) and the ashpan door (if installed with
your particular model) must be kept shut all the time, except setting the fire, fuel
reload or ash removal.
Caution! After every standby for a longer time, before you set the fire again, check
the fireplace stove for clearness and cleanness of the smoke flue, chimney and firing
area.
5.3. Feeding the fire
To prevent the smoke spreading throughout the room during the fire feeding, the following
is recommended: Approx. 5 to 10 seconds before you open the stoking door, open the
primary air regulator wide. Then, open the stoking door a bit only, wait for a couple of
seconds to allow the smoke exhausting through the chimney. After that, open the door
wide. Pay attention to the door any time you open it: do not allow live cinder fall out. When
you reloaded the wood, shut the stoking door. When the fuel burns up (no carbon black
flame), bring the regulating system back in the previous position (or close the regulator,
respectively). While feeding the fire, make sure the wood does not exceed the level of the
fireclay (vermiculite) lining in the firing area. The quantity of the fuel reloaded should be
more or less the same as specified in the information provided about the hourly
consumption for the particular model of the heating device (see the Technical Card). If you
overload the fireplace stove with excessive fuel, you may cause permanent damage to the
fireplace stove construction.
Caution! If you want to avoid unnecessary smoke spreading throughout the room
during the feeding, reload the wood after the previous load has burnt up to cinders.
5.4. Glass cleanness
The cleanness of the transparent glass depends on the type of the fuel, proper combustion
air supply (this is applied especially to the secondary air), the chimney effect and – last
but not least – on the way how the fireplace stove is operated. It is recommended to load
one layer of the wood only: the logs should be laid evenly, farther from the glass (as far as
possible). The rule is the same for coal cakes as well (keep the distance 5 to 10 mm
11
5.5. Operation during temporary period and at worsened weather conditions
For temporary periods , for example, during the time when outdoor temperature is above
o
15 C, during rainy and wet days, in case of gusty wind, etc. the chimney effect may worsen
thus the smoke is not led away in full as usual. Therefore, during such period, you should
operate the fireplace stove with smallest possible quantity of fuel, to allow improving the
firing process and the chimney effect by opening the air inlets in case you need to make
adjustments.
5.6. How to substitute the blind element by the exchanger
Some models are provided with the so-called blind element that serves as the chimney
effect conditioner as well. After removal of such blind element, those models must be
completed with warm-water exchanger allowing connection to heating bodies to provide
heat in adjacent rooms or with a water back boiler. A warm water exchanger may be
supplied as special accessory (detailed instructions for operation and installation provided).
Order the installation of the fireplace stove with warm water exchanger at a specialist
company.
Caution! A fireplace stove equipped with a warm water exchanger must not be
operated without the connection to the warm water distribution system or the water
filled, or without anti-freezing mixture, respectively.
5.7. Ash removal
Depending on the length and the intensity of the firing process, you need to use a fire hook
or poking lever (if installed with the particular model) in order to knock the ash down the
grate to the ashpan. Monitor the content of the ashpan - do not allow too much ash in
it. Excessive ash may block the air supply under the grate thus causing problems at
fire setting or burning.
Always empty the ashpan when cold. The best approach is to empty the ashpan just before
you start preparing the next fire. Ash from wood may be used for composting or for
fertilizing.
Caution! Before you touch the ashpan to empty it, check it for fire brand. Prevent any
likely fire in the dustbin.
6. CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
6.1. Cleaning
The fireplace stove (cold) needs cleaning at least once a year (after the season), or twice
or more (if needed). During the cleaning, you should remove any dirt caught in the smoke
flue, the firing area and on the partitions. Loose parts of the fireclay lining should be
repaired (i.e. replaced). Check the fireclay lining for integrity even during the heating
season. The gaps between the brick shapes are designed for heat dilatation, to avoid brick
cracking. Therefore YOU SHOULD NOT fill any sealing in the gaps (as it used be before
with older heating devices). Cracked fireclay bricks do not lose the function unless
they are completely fallen out of the position!
In the course of the cleaning procedure, we recommend you to remove all movable
partitions (for easier access in the area above them). To clean the glass, apply standard
cleaning agents designed for cleaning fireplace stove, cooker or oven. Use a soft cloth or
paper, or special agents designed for cleaning fireplace glass, e.g. CINEOL. Only clean the
glass when cold. For cleaning the painted surface, never use water: it is recommended to
clean such surface with sponge or soft flannel cloth.
12
Caution! With selected types of fireplace stove, the vertical side of the firing area is
provided with VERMICULITE. The same material is used for some chimney effect
conditioners. The material is irreparable. In case of any damage, just replace it.
Vermiculate products are characteristic with top heat-insulating parameters and good
resistance to cracking. The resistance to abrasion is somehow lower so it is recommended
to keep this in mind while reloading and cleaning.
6.2. Cleaning the ceramics and tiles
To clean ceramic tiles or tiles, it is recommended to use a dry or slightly wet cloth. Clean
the fireplace stove only while cold.
6.3. Sealing lines and tapes
Contact areas of doors and glass (or other parts of the heating device) are provided with a
special glass-ceramic sealing line (tape) that is resistant to high temperatures. We
recommend you to check the tape for integrity, and have it replaced if necessary.
After some time, any newly installed sealing tape lays flat so it is recommended to check
the tightness (the glass tightly installed in the door construction) after approx. 3 months of
usage. If you find any release, tighten the glass holders (carefully!)
6.4. Spare parts
In case of repair, use only original spare parts recommended by the manufacturer, see
Chapter 10.3 (Recommended spare parts). Identify the spare part with use of the Technical
Card (a part of the supply).
7. WHAT TO DO IF... ...Do you do it yourself?
Problem
Malfunction (weak fire, weak chimney effect) or excessive
smoke during reloading or during the firing
between them). If the glass is dirty, we recommend increasing the firing intensity by
opening the primary air regulator, which usually supports the self-acting cleaning process.

8.2. Broken glass
The door glass is made of special glass-ceramic material, characteristic with top heat
resistance. Do not use standard window glass!
Procedure There is no need to dismount the whole door. You should only unscrew the
holders and remove the glass then easily. When you install the new piece, make sure the
new glass is seated evenly. The contact surface between the glass and the door must be
provided with a sealing tape. Do not replace the sealing tape if it is in good condition.
Tighten the glass holders back slowly and carefully to avoid cracking the new glass by
excessive tension.
Caution! Some types of the fireplace stove are not provided with the sealing tape along the
whole perimeter.
8.3. Partitions to control the chimney effect
To clean the fireplace stove or replace fireclay (vermiculite) bricks, first remove the
movable partitions (if installed, see Technical Card). This way, you make you way to the
cleaning or replacement job. Keep in mind that some types of the partitions are designed for
holding the bricks at the position as well. Make sure you do not tilt them or let them fall out
and break. Install them back in their original positions.
Disassembly Lift the movable partition on one side a bit – this way, the other end is
lowered. Move the partition aside to allow taking it out of the device.
Assembly Use the same procedure (reverse order). Insert the partition into the device and
find the previous position. Check the final position with the Technical Card!
8.4. Cracked side tile

reason but, usually one of the
following is found: wrong type of
fuel, wrong adjustment of the
firing
process,
weak
or
temporarily weak chimney effect,
door sealing loosen
Chimney effect is too low
Rule: Clean the door from time to time (depends on the type
of the fuel used), see 5.4. . If coal cakes are used, the
door needs cleaning more often than with wood
See 4.
Too much fuel in the firing area
Wet fuel was loaded.
Only load correct quantity, see 2.1. and 5.3.
Use only well-dried fuel, see 2.2.
8. FREQUENT PROBLEMS AND QUESTIONS
8.1. Cracked (released) fireclay (vermiculite) brick in the burning area
It is emphasised that cracked fireclay bricks do not lose their function unless they have
fallen out, so there is no reason to replace them while cracked only. In case of replace
needed, order the components at your sales representative or manufacturer’s address.
Please specify the type and the serial number and the fireclay ID number (see the
Technical Card).
Procedure If you need to replace the side bricks, remove the upper partition or remove the
fireclay holders and take the damaged brick away. Sometimes, you need to remove the
cast grate with bricks at the bottom. For the installation, use the same procedure (reverse).
Make sure you place the components back in exact positions (follow the Technical Card).
Caution! Do not put the fireplace stove in operation if (even a part) of the lining within the
burning area falls out. There is danger of burning the construction through.
14
During transport, operation or for other reasons, tiles designed for the fireplace stove lining
may suffer. The tiles (or metal panels) are stuck in the lining by pressure from special
springs.
Disassembly Knock on the tile slightly (use the palm of your hand) to move it to the edge
(right or left). Make sure the tile does not fall down or cracks by the tension from the spring
released. Start the disassembly from the tile in the middle or from the tile leaned against
the lining from two sides.
Assembly Start with the bottom or upper tile. Insert the tile in its original position (from the
right or left), then get through the power produced by the spring. To do so, the best way is
to hold the tile with both hands, push it to get in contact with the edge of the fireplace stove
and, after that, knocking on the tile with you palm (gently!), move it in its correct position.
(Sometimes you need to produce a bit more than gentle knocking). Make sure the tile is
positioned properly – the same overlap on both sides. The tile to be seated in the middle is
installed the last.
Caution! If during the operation any part of the lining gets loose by material dilatation, it is
recommended to increase the spring force.
8.5. The blind element substituted by an exchanger (optional)
Disassembly Use a wrench (proper size) to unscrew the nuts from the blind element.
Remove it from the fireplace stove construction.
Assembly Before you install the exchanger, carefully clean the contact area. Remove any
remaining parts of the previous sealing after the blind element has been taken away.
Provide undamaged sealing under the exchanger. Tighten the nuts evenly to provide good
tightness along the whole exchange flange.
