Installing The Fireplace Shell
The fireplace may be installed in any location that maintains proper clearances to air conditioning ducts, electrical wiring and plumbing. Safety,
as well as efficiency of operation, must be considered when selecting
the fireplace location. Try to select a location that does not interfere
with room traffic, has adequate ventilation, and offers an accessible
pathway for Direct Vent installation. Refer to page 4 - Vent Installation
for more information.
The fireplace dimensions for H(L)42DF-ST models are shown below:
(Minimum 1" clearance must still be maintained around the vent
pipes, except on horizontal venting sections where the top of the pipe
must have a clearance of 2")
WARNING!
When this appliance is installed directly on carpeting, tile or any
combustible material other than wood flooring, it must be installed
on a metal or wood panel extending the full width and depth of

H(L)42DF-ST See-thru Indoor Gas Fireplace
Installation
Installing The Gas Line
Vent Installation
The gas line must be installed before finishing the H(L)42DF-ST Series
Fireplace. Natural Gas requires a minimum inlet gas supply pressure
of 5.5" W.C. & a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C. Propane Gas requires a
minimum inlet gas supply pressure of 11" W.C. & a manifold pressure of
10" W.C. Provision must also be made for a 1/8" N.P.T. plugged tapping
and be accessible for test gauge connection immediately upstream of
the gas supply controls to the appliance. The fireplace gas connection
and the main operating gas valve is located behind the removable trim
at the bottom of the unit and need only be attached to the gas line with
an approved fitting, as required by the applicable installation codes.
This section covers the installation of direct venting and terminations.
To access the fireplace gas connection the main burner must be
removed as shown below in figure 5b.
 All joints must be secured with a minimum of two screws per joint
• Only use gas shut-off valves approved for use by the state, province,
region, or governing body, in which the appliance is being installed, or
as required by the applicable installation codes.
 Horizontal runs must be supported by a minimum of two supports per hori-
• Flexible gas connectors must not exceed 3 feet in length, unless it is
allowable within applicable installation codes.
Installation Requirements
 H(L)42DF-ST Series fireplaces are certified for use with Montigo Standard
Series (5" / 8") venting components.
 Minimum clearance to combustible construction around the vent pipe is 1"
on all sides, except on horizontal venting where the top of the pipe must
have a clearance of at least 2".
 Use only certified Montigo vent components. (Use of other parts will void
the Montigo warranty, and may impede the operation of the fireplace.)
 Vent terminations must not be recessed in walls or siding
zontal run. A minimum of one screw on each side of support is also required
 Flex vent sections may be stretched up to 50% of their total length (eg. a
24" section may be stretched to 36")
 Venting components can be used in any combination of solid/rigid
 Solid vent sections may be cut less than half way from the
tapered end
 Venting components can be used in any combination of solid/rigid pipe or
flex pipe and in any orientation (Male connectors can face in any direction).
Cautions:
 Vent terminations can be very hot. If the termination is less than 7 feet
above a public walkway, it should be fitted with a certified Montigo
Heat Guard. (Part no. PTKOG).
Figure 3. Gas line access.
The appliance and its individual shut-off valve must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that
system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by
closing its individual manual shut-off valve during any pressure testing
of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Note: After gas line is connected, each appliance connection,
valve and valve train must be checked while under normal
operating pressure with either a liquid solution, or leak
detection device, to locate any source of leak. Tighten any
areas where bubbling appears or leak is detected until
bubbling stops completely or leak is no longer detected.
DO NOT use a flame of any kind to test for leaks.
Part No. XG0237 - 033111
 Do not obstruct, or attempt to conceal the vent termination.
These actions will affect the operation of the fireplace, and may
be hazardous.
 In heavy snow areas, take extra care to prevent snow buildup
from obstructing the vent termination.
 Use Montigo Vinyl Heat Shield (Part no. VSS) when using on applications with vinyl siding to guard against possible damage.
Installing The Remote Switch
The H(L)42DF-ST are equipped with a remote-operated valve for use
with a wall switch. See Figure 21 for information on wiring the switch.
The valve is pre-wired and generates its own power. DO NOT connect any external power to it.
Note: The switch location must not exceed 30' from the fireplace.

Installing the Nailing Flange
Extension
Top Vent Venting
Requirements
Once the fireplace is placed into the framed opening, the suppliednailing extension must placed along the top edge of the fireplace, and
nailed in place to the framing, as illustrated below. Fasten the steel
lintel is in place, (Part No. L42087) (see Figure 2), the supplied nailing
extension must be placed along the top edge of the fireplace and
securely fastened in place to the metal lintel, and combustible wood
framing.
Before you install any venting, you must determine whether the
venting run will be acceptable. Unacceptable venting can affect the
fireplace's combustion.
Note: The nailing flange extension can be substituted with a piece of
NON-Combustible material of the same size and thermal characteristics, ie: cement board or equivalent.
The Rear Vent Venting Graph
 for installations with horizontal venting runs of 0-16 feet, use the
vent graph, as described below
 the maximum horizontal vent run is 16 feet.
Measure the vertical height from the fireplace hearth to the centre of
the termination and the horizontal run from the from the fireplace flue
collar to the wall flange of the termination. Plot on the Venting Graph
(Fig. 12) with an 'X'.
If the 'X' falls on or above the top boundary of the shaded area, the
installation is acceptable.
Example A: (Acceptable Installation)
If the vertical dimension from the hearth is 72", and the horizontal run to the wall flange of the vent termination is 120", this
would be an acceptable installation.
Figure 6c. Installing the Nailing Flange Extension.
Example B: (Acceptable Installation)
If the vertical dimension from the hearth is 66" and the horizontal
run to the wall flange of the vent termination is 30", this would be
an acceptable installation.
Example C: (Unacceptable Installation)
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the fireplace is 48" and
the horizontal run to the wall flange of the vent termination is 84",
this would not be an acceptable installation.

Finishing Around the Fireplace
Combustible mantels and mouldings may be safely installed over the
top and on the front of the fireplace provided that they do not project
beyond shaded area shown in Figure 20a. Side wall clearances are
0". Combustible surrounds may be installed with 0" clearance to the
side of the fireplace as shown in Figure 20b.

Mantels & Surrounds
NOTE: Mantel clearances are for fire hazard prevention to combustible materials.
New technology, to meet consumer and government demands for the
wise use of energy, has prompted us to manufacture many models of
fireplaces which are hot, fuel and energy efficient.
Please be aware; temperatures over the mantel will rise above normal
room temperature and walls above fireplace may be hot to touch.
We recommend careful consideration be given to the effects of
elevated mantel temperatures which may be in excess of product
design, for example: candles, plastic or pictures. This can cause melting, deformation, discoloration or premature failure of T.V. and radio
components.
Fireplace Facing
When selecting the finish material for your fireplace, it is important
to remember the following: THE OPENING MUST NOT BE OBSTRUCTED IN ANY WAY - to do so restricts the air supply for
the control compartments and heat exchanger it also prevents
access for servicing controls.
The face of the fireplace may be painted to match the room decor,
provided you use a heat-resistant paint. Decorative facing must not
extend past the fireplace opening at all, because it will interfere with
the access to retainers for removal of glass door. When using a
tile facing, It is required not to tile over the outside frame of the
fireplace, as this will obstruct the door removal. See Figure 20c.

Burner Adjustment
The H42DF-ST is equipped with an adjustable burner, allowing you to
raise or lower the flames. To adjust the flames, locate the black knob
marked 'Hi-Lo', in the centre of the gas control valve (See Figure 25).
The front burners are not adjustable.
 To raise the flame height, turn the black knob (located behind the
lower trim) counterclockwise.
 To lower the flame height, turn clockwise.
 Have the fireplace and installation inspected yearly. The inspection
must include, but is not limited to, the following:
• A visual check of the entire vent system and termination.
• An inspection of the explosion relief flappers and the door
gasketing to ensure a proper seal.
• An inspection of the burner, venturi, and primary air openings.
• An inspection of the gas valve, gas components, and pilot flame.
For your convenience a 1/8" manifold pressure tap is supplied
on the gas valve for a test gauge connection. See Figure 32.
• Ensure proper log placement as per this manual.
• Inspection of all optional equipment; fans, thermostats, etc.
 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 vapors 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
Figure 25. Hi-Lo' Adjustment on the H42DF-ST's gas valve.
Note:
HL42DF-ST-I (electronic ignition). For electronic ignition
(HSI) models see figure 21.
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, as shown on page 15. Handle the
door carefully, and clean it with non-abrasive 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.  Logs may be cleaned periodically with a vacuum to remove soot or
other contaminates.
