Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Gas Heater
General Information
The Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Room Heater, Model
Nos. 3900-3916, 3940-3956 is a vented gas appliance listed
to the ANSI standard Z21.88-2005 and CSA-2.33-2005 for
Vented Room Heaters, and CSA 2.17-M91, Gas-Fired Appliances For Use at High Altitudes.
The installation of the Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent
Room Heater must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54 — latest edition and CSA B-149.1 Installation Code. (EXCEPTION: Do not derate this appliance for
altitude. Maintain the manifold pressure at 3.5” w.c. for Natural Gas and 10.0” w.c. for LP gas at maximum input.) Refer to
Page 32 (RF only).
This appliance is only for use with the type of gas indicated
on the rating plate. This appliance is not convertible for use
with other gases unless a certified kit is used.
Installation and replacement of gas piping, gas utilization equipment or accessories, and repair and servicing of equipment shall be performed only by a qualified
agency, preferably NFI or WETT (Canada) certified. The
term “qualified agency” means any individual, firm, corporation, or company that either in person or through a
representative is engaged in and is responsible for (a)
installation or replacement of gas piping, or (b), the connection, installation, repair, or servicing of equipment,
who is experienced in such work, familiar with all precautions required, and has complied with all the requirements of the authority having jurisdiction.
The Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Room Heater
should be inspected before use and at least annually by
a qualified service agency. It is imperative that control
compartments, burners, and circulating air passageways
of the appliance be kept clean.
The Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Room Heater and its
individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas
supply piping during any pressure testing of that system at
test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
The Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Room Heater must
be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its
individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing
of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or
less than 1/2 psig.
‘Direct Vent’ describes a sealed combustion system in which
incoming outside air for combustion and outgoing exhaust enter and exit through two separate concentric passages within
the same sealed vent system. The system does not use room
air to support combustion. The Direct Vent system permits
the gas appliance to be vented directly to the outside atmosphere through the side of the house or vertically through the
roof. Conventional venting systems (Natural Vent) take air
from the room for combustion and vent the exhaust vertically
through the roof to the atmosphere.
This appliance is approved for bedroom installations in the
U.S. and Canada.
This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket* manufactured (mobile) home, where not prohibited by state or local
codes.
20007065

A vertical vent system must terminate no less than 8’
(2.44m) and no more than 40’ (12m) above the appliance flue collar. A 2Z\v” restrictor plate (supplied) must
be used where specified in all vertically terminated vent
systems. (Fig. 8) NOTE: The restrictor plate supplied
with the vertical termination should be discarded. Install
restrictor plate supplied with stove directly at stove
outlet. A vertically terminated vent system must also
conform to the following criteria:
• No more than three 90˚ elbows may be used.
• Two 45˚ elbows may be substituted for one 90˚ elbow. No more than six elbows may be used.
• Vent must rise a minimum of 2 feet before offset is
used.
• Termination height must conform to roof clearance
as specified in Figure 9.

The vent should be placed so that people cannot be
burned by accidentally touching the vent surfaces when
the stove is operating.
The vent termination should be located where it cannot
be damaged by such things as automobile doors, lawn
mowers or snowblowers and it should be located away
from areas where it could become blocked by snow,
etc.
Some considerations are:
• Obstructions or impediments to venting.
• Nearby combustible materials that could come into
contact with combustion exhaust gases.
• Other nearby openings {within 12” (305mm)} through
which exhaust gas could reenter the building.
• All vegetation within 3’ ((76mm) that may interfere
with the draft.

Important: All vent clearances must be maintained.
Check your vent termination clearances against
Figures 9 through 11.
Other factors that influence where the installation will
be sited include the location of outside walls, where
additional heat may be desired in the home, where the
family members gather most regularly, and perhaps
most importantly, the distance limitations of the venting
system.

General Information
The Stardance Heater is shipped from the factory as a
Direct Vent Heater. It may be converted to a Natural
Vent heater by installing the Vermont Castings Model
Z31D00 FSDHAG Draft Hood Adapter.
The Stardance Heater is approved for installation as
a Natural Vent. CFM Direct Vent pipe could be used
directly after the Draft Hood Adapter up to the ceiling,
then B-vent pipe must be used. Do not mix types of
B-vent pipe; use components from one maker or the
other. Follow the vent component maker’s instructions
exactly. The heater will also accept standard or enamelled 7” (178mm) diameter pipe, around the Type B
venting, for decorative purposes only. (Fig. 32)

Apply a bead of sealant around bottom end of inner
starter pipe (found in bag with logset) and attach to
stove. Apply a bead of sealant around top of inner
starter pipe and install the Z31D00 FSDHAG Draft
Hood according to Draft Hood instructions. (Fig. 33)
Attach the first section of venting to the draft hood. Depending on the length of the individual venting sections
and the lengths of the decorative pipe (if installed), you
may need to slip the decorative pipe over the venting
sections before attaching upper sections to lower ones.
The sections of decorative pipe should be oriented with
their seams (if any) toward the wall; sections usually
do not need to be fastened at each joint, other than
slip sections. If the layout includes a slip section, this
should be the last section of pipe visible in the room, at
the ceiling. Complete the venting according to the vent
maker’s instructions.

4. Frequent pilot outage
20007065
A. Pilot flame may be too low or
high, (blowing or lifting), causing the pilot to drop out
B. Possible blockage of the vent
terminal
CORRECTIVE ACTION
Using a match, light pilot. If pilot lights, turn off pilot
and push the ignitor button again. If pilot will not light,
check gap at electrode and pilot - it should be 1/8” to
have a strong spark.
Push piezo ignitor button. Check for spark at electrode and pilot. If there is no spark at the pilot, and
electrode wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
Check pilot flame. It must impinge on the thermocouple or thermopile. NOTE: This pilot burner assembly uses both a thermocouple and a thermopile.
The thermocouple operates the pilot flame. Tighten
the thermocouple. The thermopile operates the main
valve (ON and OFF). Clean and/or adjust pilot for
maximum flame impingement on thermocouple and
thermopile.
Turn valve knob to ‘Pilot’. Maintain flow to pilot; millivolt meter should read greater than 10mV. If the
reading is okay and the pilot does not stay on, replace the gas valve. NOTE: An interrupter block (not
supplied) must be used to conduct this test.
Check rocker switch and wires for proper connection.
Use jumper wires across terminals at rocker switch.
If burner lights, replace rocker switch. If okay, use
jumper wires across rocker switch wires at the valve;
if burner lights, wires are faulty or connections are
bad.
1. Be sure wire connections from thermopile at gas
valve terminals are tight and thermopile is fully
inserted into pilot bracket.
2. One of the rocker switch wires may be grounded.
Remove rocker switch wires from valve terminals.
If burner now stays lit, trace rocker switch wiring
from ground. It may be grounded to the appliance
or the gas supply line.
3. Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take
reading at thermopile (“TP” and “TP/TH”) terminals
of gas valve. Should read 325 millivolts minimum
while holding valve knob depressed in PILOT position and with rocker switch OFF. Replace faulty
thermopile if reading is below specified minimum.
Check burner orifices for debris, and remove.
Turn knob to ON, place rocker switch to ON, millivolt
meter should read greater than 10 mV. If the reading is okay and the burner does not light, replace the
valve.
Clean and/or adjust pilot flame for maximum flame
impingement on thermocouple and thermopile.
Check the vent terminal for blockage.

Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Gas Heater
Maintenance
Your Stardance Gas Heater will provide years of service
with minimal upkeep. The following procedures will help
ensure that your stove continues to function properly.
Annual System Inspection
Have the entire heater and venting system inspected
annually by a qualified gas technician. Replace any
worn or broken parts.
Logset and Burner /
Cleaning and Inspection
Cleanliness is critical to the proper function of the
heater. The logset and burner must all be kept free of
dust and unobstructed by debris. Inspect these areas
before each use and clean as necessary.
1. Turn the burner OFF and let the heater cool completely before cleaning.
2. Lift the Stove Front up and then swing the bottom
out to disengage it from the heater shell. (Fig. 64)
3. Carefully remove the glass and frame assembly and
place it out of the way on a flat, padded surface such
as a counter protected by a towel.
4. Carefully inspect the Logs for damage. Contact your
local dealer if any damage is evident. DO NOT OPERATE THE HEATER WITH DAMAGED LOGS.
5. Use a soft bristled brush to sweep dust or debris
from the Logs, Pilot and Burner. Use care as the logs
are fragile and susceptible to damage. DO NOT USE
A VACUUM TO CLEAN THE LOGS OR BURNER.
6. Replace the glass panel and frame assembly.
7. Replace the Stove Front.
CAUTION
TURN THE PILOT OFF BEFORE PAINTING. ALLOW THE HEATER TO COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE PAINTING.
Cleaning the Glass
WARNING: Allow the glass cool completely before
attempting to clean.
It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically. During start-up, condensation, which is normal, forms on
the inside of the glass and causes lint, dust and other
airborne particles to cling to the glass surface. Also
initial paint curing may deposit a slight film on the glass.
It is therefore recommended that the glass be cleaned
two or three times with a non-ammonia household
cleaner and warm water (we recommend gas fireplace
glass cleaner). After that the glass should be cleaned
two or three times during each heating season depending on the circumstances present.
Clean glass after first two weeks of operation.
Glass Replacement
Replace glass only with CFM Corporation approved
parts. Refer to Page 36 for Replacement Parts. Refer to
Figure 63 and previous instructions for removal of the
damaged glass frame.
Care of Cast Iron
An occasional dusting with a dry rag will help keep the
painted surfaces looking new. Use high-temperature
stove paints, available through your local dealer, to
touch-up areas as needed. Clean areas to be painted
with a wire brush and be sure to cover the logs, burner
and valve assembly, glass and frame assembly. Apply
the paint sparingly; two light coats of paint will give better results than a single heavy coat.
Clean porcelain enamel surfaces with a soft, damp
cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents. If necessary, use only a cleaning agent formulated especially
for use on porcelain enamel surfaces.

Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Gas Heater
Inspect the Vent System Annually
ST208
Have the vent system inspected annually by a qualified
technician. Shut off the main gas supply before inspecting the system. Both the inner exhaust pipe and the outer combustion supply pipe must be checked to confirm
that they are unblocked and in good condition.
Check the Gas Flame Regularly
Fig. 64 Release the latches to release the glass frame.
Gasket Replacement
The Stardance Gas Heater uses a ‘tadpole’ type gasket
to seal between the glass panel and the frame. In time,
this gasket can become brittle and compressed and
should be replaced. New gasket is available from your
dealer.
Shut off the gas supply and allow the stove to cool.
Wear safety goggles and a dust mask.
1. Remove the Front, Glass Frame and Glass Panel.
(Figs. 63 & 64) Remove the old gasket. Use a
razor blade
to separate the glass and gasket from
ST208
the frame, and to clean the glass of any remaining
glass swivel latch
cement or bits of gasket. Use a cold chisel if neces12/99
sary.
2. Determine the correct length of gasket by laying it
out around the edge of the glass. Allow an extra 1
- 2” (25-50mm). Mark the spot to be cut. Use a utility
knife.
3. Starting on a long edge, remove about 6” of the protective paper strip and apply the flat adhesive face
of the gasket around the outside-facing edge of the
panel. Continue around the panel, applying a bout 6”
at a time and being careful to not stretch the material. Do not overlap the gasket ends. (Fig. 65)
4. Apply a thin bead of high temperature silicone rubber
sealant along the inside corner of the glass frame, all
around the perimeter. Place the flat gasketed side of
the glass panel back into the steel frame. Pinch the
rounded inside-facing gasket material to bulk it up.
5. Replace the glass frame and front panel as previously described.
To ensure that the stove is operating properly, check the
flames periodically to confirm that they match Figure 64.
The flames will be blue during the first 15-20 minutes of
operation, and will gradually turn to yellow after that.
Do not use your stove if the flame pattern differs from
that shown here. Contact your Vermont Castings dealer
or a qualified technician for help.

Glow
LG143
Fig. 66 Correct flame pattern.
Stove Disassembly
If there is ever a need to remove the firebox assembly from the stove shell, support the firebox with solid
stands about 6” (152mm) tall under the left and right
outer edges of the firebox base. Do not set the firebox
assembly directly on the floor; this can damage the
control valve and/or the gas lines from the valve to the
firebox.
Before removing the firebox
from the shell, disconnect
LG142
the on/off switch wires from the valve. If the assembly
Stardance
includes the optional fan, disconnect the fan rheostat.
Install

If the installation includes
a walllogs
thermostat,
disconnect
12/11/00
djt
the thermostat leads from

Disconnection and reconnection to the gas line should
only be done by a qualified gas service technician.
Upon reinstallation, the vent system must be sealed to
the firebox as shown in the installation section, Page
14. Also be sure the logs are placed in the firebox correctly, as shown in Page 19, Figures 34 & 35.
