When using Wolf Steel Ltd. venting components, use only approved Wolf Steel Ltd. rigid / flexible vent components with the following termination kits: WALL TERMINAL KIT GD422R, or 1/12 TO 7/12 PITCH ROOF TERMINAL KIT GD410, 8/12 TO 12/12 ROOF TERMINAL
KIT GD411, FLAT ROOF TERMINAL KIT GD412 or PERISCOPE KIT GD401 (for wall penetration below grade). With flexible venting, in
conjunction with the various terminations, use either the 5 foot vent kit GD420 or the 10 foot vent kit GD430. These vent kits allow for either
horizontal or vertical venting of the fireplace.
The maximum allowable vertical vent length is 40 feet. The maximum number of allowable 5” vent connections is three horizontally or
vertically (excluding the fireplace and the air terminal connections).
For optimum flame appearance and fireplace performance, keep the vent FIGURES 3a
length and number of elbows to a minimum. The air terminal must remain
unobstructed at all times. Examine the air terminal at least once a year to
verify that it is unobstructed and undamaged.
When venting, the horizontal run must be kept to a minimum of 16“ or a
maximum of 20 feet. If a 20 foot horizontal run is required, the fireplace
must have a minimum vertical rise immediately off the fireplace of 57“.
FIGURES 2a-c. When terminating vertically, the vertical rise is a minimum
3 feet and a maximum 40 feet above the fireplace. FIGURE 3.

FIGURE 3b
FIGURE 3c
Horizontal runs may have a 0“ rise per foot in all cases using Simpson Dura-Vent, Selkirk Direct Temp, American Metal Amerivent or Wolf
Steel Ltd. rigid or flexible venting components when venting as illustrated in Figures 2a, 2b, and 2c.
For optimum performance, it is recommended that all horizontal runs have a minimum 1“ rise per foot.
Provide a means for visually checking the vent connection to the fireplace after the fireplace is installed.
Do not allow the inside liner to bunch up on horizontal or vertical runs and elbows. Keep it pulled tight. A 1¼” air gap between the inner and
outer liner all around is required for safe operation.
Vent lengths that pass through unheated spaces (attics, garages, crawl space) should be wrapped with a protective insulation sleeve to
minimize condensation.
Use a firestop when penetrating interior walls, floor or ceiling.
For safe and proper operation of the fireplace follow the venting instruction exactly.
Deviation from the minimum vertical vent length can create difficulty in burner start-up and/or carboning.
If vertical rises greater than 57“ are necessary, the increased rise must be deducted from the horizontal run.

INSTALLATION
WALL AND CEILING PROTECTION
FOR SAFE AND PROPER OPERATION OF THE FIREPLACE, FOLLOW THE VENTING INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY.
**HORIZONTAL VENT SECTIONS: A minimum clearance of 2" all around the vent pipe on all horizontal runs to combustibles is required
except for clearances in the fireplace enclosure. Use firestop spacer W010-1800 (supplied).
VERTICAL VENT SECTIONS: A minimum of 1" all around the vent pipe on all vertical runs to combustibles is required except for clearances
in fireplace enclosures. Use firestop spacer W500-0367 (not supplied).
HORIZONTAL INSTALLATION
This application occurs when venting through an exterior wall.
Having determined the air terminal location, cut and frame a hole
in an exterior wall. The recommended framed opening is 12 3/4”
W x 12 3/4” H. See figure 14.
1. Apply a bead of caulking (not supplied) all around and place
a firestop spacer over the framed hole to restrict cold air from
being drawn into the room or around the fireplace. Ensure that
the spacer maintains the required clearance to combustibles.
Once the vent pipe / liner is installed in its final position, apply
high temperature sealant W573-0002 (not supplied) between
the pipe / liner and the firestop spacer.
FIGURE 14
VERTICAL INSTALLATION
This application occurs when venting through a roof. Installation kits
for various roof pitches are available from your Authorized dealer.
See Accessories to order the specific kit required.
FIGURE 15
1. Determine the air terminal location, cut and frame a 10 3/4”
square opening in the ceiling and the roof to provide the minimum
1“ clearance between the fireplace pipe / liner and any combustible
material. Try to centre the exhaust pipe location midway between
two joists to prevent having to cut them. Use a plumb bob to line
up the centre of the openings. DO NOT FILL THIS SPACE WITH
ANY TYPE OF MATERIAL.
A vent pipe shield and collar will prevent any materials such as
insulation, from filling up the 1” air space around the pipe. Nail
headers between the joist for extra support.
2. Apply a bead of caulking (not supplied) to the framework or to
the Wolf Steel vent pipe shield plate or equivalent (in the case of
a finished ceiling), and secure over the opening in the ceiling. A firestop must be
placed on the bottom of each framed opening in a roof or ceiling that the venting
system passes through. Apply a bead of caulking all around and place a firestop
spacer over the vent shield to restrict cold air from being drawn into the room or
around the fireplace. Ensure that both spacer and shield maintain the required

After moving the mobile home and prior to lighting the fireplace, permanently ensure that the logs are positioned correctly.
This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket permanently located, manufactured (mobile) home, where not prohibited by
local codes.
This appliance is only to be used with the type of gas indicated on the rating plate. This appliance is not convertible for use
with other gasses, unless a certified kit is used.
CONVERSION KITS
The mobile home appliance is field convertible between Natural Gas (NG) and Propane (LP).
To convert from one gas to another consult your Authorized dealer/distributor.
GAS INSTALLATION
Proceed once the vent installation is complete.
NOTE: All gas connections must be contained within the fireplace when complete.
1. The fireplace is designed to accept a ½” gas supply line. The fireplace is equipped with a ½” manual shut-off
FIGURE 29
valve, and an 18” listed flexible gas connector.
2. The access to the gas inlet is located on the right side of the outer shell.
3. To ease the connection, the shut off can be flexed out through the side of the fireplace
where the connection can be made and then returned into the shell.
FIGURE 30
4. When flexing any gas line, support the gas valve so that the lines are not bent. (See Access Pg. 20).
5. Check for gas leaks by brushing on a soap and water solution. Do not use open flame.
Purge all gas lines with the glass door of the fireplace open. Assure that a continuous gas flow
is at the burner before closing the door.
RESTRICTING VERTICAL VENTS
TOP OF THE
FIREBOX
RESTRICTOR PLATE
FLUE COLLAR
Vertical terminations may display a very active flame. If this appearance is not desirable, the vent exit must be restricted using restrictor plate, W500-0205. This reduces
the velocity of the exhaust gases, slowing down the flame pattern and creating a more
traditional appearance.
The plate has a series of holes to allow for adjustment.
Remove the two screws on either side of the exhaust collar inside the firebox. Install
the plate in the desired set of holes, then replace the screws.

The Madison must be installed with either an arched opening
(FK80-A) or a rectangular opening (FK80-R) using one of the
above kits.
The framing kits serve two purposes. They are necessary if optional
doors (DK80) are to be installed.
Secondly, they act as a reference when finishing to the fireplace
opening.
The FK80 is designed to accommodate 1/2” to 1 1/2” finishing
material. They are adjustable to ensure doors open fully .
If finishing material is thicker than 1 1/2”, an optional extension kit
is available (EK80).
FIGURE 32
It is best to frame your fireplace after it is positioned and the vent
system is installed. Use 2x4’s and frame to local building codes.
NOTE: In order to avoid the possibility of exposed insulation or vapor barrier coming in contact with the fireplace body, it is recommended that the walls of the fireplace enclosure be “finished” (ie: drywall/sheetrock), as you would finish any other outside wall of
a home. This will ensure that clearance to combustibles is maintained within the cavity.
It is not necessary to install a hearth extension, but the fireplace should be raised to be flush with either the hearth or the finished
floor.
When roughing in the fireplace, raise the fireplace to accommodate for the thickness of the finished floor materials, i.e. tile, carpeting, hard wood, which if not planned for will interfere with the removal of the hearth strip, which must be removed to access the
firebox.
If the intent is to use the Chelmsford mantel, a riser is required to lift the unit, while at the framing stage.
Objects placed in front of the fireplace should be kept a minimum of 48” away from the front face.

LOW BATTERY / MANUAL BYPASS
The life span of the remote batteries depends on various factors: quality of the batteries, the number of ignitions, the number of changes to
the room thermostat set point, etc.
When the transmitter batteries are low, a Battery Icon will appear on the LCD display before all battery power is lost. When the batteries are
replaced this Icon will disappear.
Not applicable when plugged into 110V.
When the receiver batteries are low, no “beep” will be emitted from the receiver when it receives an ON/
OFF command. This is an alert for the receiver that there’s low battery. When the batteries are replaced
the “beep” will be emitted from the receiver when the ON/OFF Key is pressed.
If the batteries of the receiver or transmitter are low, the appliance can be turned on manually by sliding the
three position slider switch on the receiver to the “ON” position. This will bypass the remote control feature
and the appliance main burner will come on if the gas valve is in the “ON” position.
FIGURE 78
IN THE EVENT OF A POWER FAILURE
Refer to remote operation when communications between receiver and transmitter have been lost.
If the receiver is equipped with batteries they will enable the on/off or thermostat function to control the fireplace during a power failure. If
the receiver is not equipped with back up batteries the blower and night light™ features will not operate during a power failure.
The receiver will emit a “beep” sound to confirm programming has been successful once power is restored.
CONTROL MODULE
Control Module (CM) offers the added ability to control the fan speed through six (6) speeds, a remotely actuated 120V AUX outlet for the
night light™ and a constantly powered 120V outlet.
NOTE: Control module ON/OFF
switch should always be in the
“ON” position. If for any reason
the module is turned “OFF”, the
components plugged into the
module won’t have power.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
When lit for the first time, the fireplace will emit a slight odour for a few hours. This is a normal temporary condition caused
by the “burn-in” of paints and lubricants used in the manufacturing process and will not occur again. Simply open a window
to sufficiently ventilate the room.
After extended periods of non-operation such as following a vacation or a warm weather season, the fireplace may emit a
slight odour for a few hours. This is caused by dust particles in the heat exchanger burning off. Open a window to sufficiently
ventilate the room.
Purge all gas lines with the glass door of the fireplace open. Assure that a continuous gas flow is at the burner
before closing the door.
FOR YOUR SAFETY READ BEFORE LIGHTING:
A. This fireplace is equipped with a pilot which must be lit by hand while following these instructions exactly.
B. Before operating smell all around the fireplace area for gas and next to the floor because some gas is heavier than air
and will settle on the floor.
C. Use only your hand to turn the gas control knob / manual shut-off knob. Never use tools. If the knob will not turn by hand,
do not try to repair it. call a qualified service technician. force or attempted re pair may result in a fire or explosion.
D. Do not use this fireplace if any part has been under water. immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect
the fireplace and replace any part of the control system and any gas control which has been under water.

MAINTENANCE
TURN OFF THE GAS AND ELECTRICAL POWER BEFORE SERVICING THE FIREPLACE.
CAUTION: Label all wires prior to disconnection when servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause improper and dangerous
operation. Verify proper operation after servicing. This fireplace and its venting system should be inspected before use and
at least annually by a qualified service person. The fireplace area must be kept clear and free of combustible materials,
gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids. The flow of combustion and ventilation air must not be obstructed.
1. In order to properly clean the burner and pilot assembly, remove the logs to expose both assemblies.
2. Keep the control compartment, logs, burner, air shutter opening and the area surrounding the logs clean by vacuuming
or brushing, at least once a year.
3. Check to see that all burner ports are burning. Clean out any of the ports which may not be burning or are not burning
properly.
4. Check to see that the pilot flame is large enough to engulf the thermocouple and thermopile and reaches toward the
burner with the third jet.
5. Replace the cleaned logs.
6. Check to see that the main burner ignites completely on all openings when the gas knob for the burner is turned on. A 5
to 10 second total light-up period is satisfactory. If ignition takes longer, consult your Authorized dealer / distributor.
7. Check that the gasketing on the sides, top and bottom of the door is not broken or missing. Replace if necessary.
ADJUSTMENTS
