Control compartments, burners and air passages in this
fireplace should be kept clean and free of dust and lint.
Make sure the gas valve and pilot light are turned off before
you attempt to clean this fireplace.
The venting system (chimney) of this fireplace should be
checked at least once a year and if needed your venting
system should be cleaned.
Keep the area around your fireplace clear of combustible
materials, gasoline and other flammable vapor and liquids.
This fireplace should not be used as a drying rack for clothing, nor should Christmas stockings or decorations be hung
on or around the fireplace.
Under no circumstances should any solid fuels (wood, coal,
paper or cardboard etc.) be used in this fireplace.

the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects
and other reproductive harm.
California Health & Safety Code Sec. 25249.6
WARNING: Check with your electronics manufacturer
before installing a television or other electronic device above this fireplace.
IMPORTANT:
PLEASE REVIEW THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY
Remove any plastic from trim parts before turning the fireplace
ON.
It is normal for fireplaces fabricated of steel to give off some
expansion and/or contraction noises during the start up or cool
down cycle. Similar noises are found with your furnace heat
exchanger or car engine.
It is not unusual for your gas fireplace to give off some odor
the first time it is burned. This is due to the curing of the paint
and any undetected oil from the manufacturing process.
Please ensure that your room is well ventilated - open
all windows.
It is recommended that you burn your fireplace for at least
ten (10) hours the first time you use it. If the optional fan kit
has been installed, place the fan switch in the “OFF” position
during this time.

also applies to the distance between the mantel leg (if
fitted) and the fireplace.
For the correct mounting height and widths refer to
Figs. 3a and 3b, and the following Mantel Charts.
The fitting of a bay window trim kit does not effect
the distances and reference points referred to in the
diagram and chart.
Noncombustible mantels and legs may be installed at
any height and width around the appliance.
When using paint or lacquer to finish the mantel, such
paint or lacquer must be heat resistant to prevent
discoloration.

CDV Series Direct Vent Gas Fireplace
Framing and Finishing
Hood Installation
Check fireplace to make sure it is levelled
and properly positioned.
To mount the appliance:
1. Choose the location.
2. This unit comes with four (4) flanges pre-mounted
on both sides of the fireplace to allow two different
drywall thicknesses to be used. Flange “A” is for 1/2”
drywall while flange “B” is for 5/8” drywall.
3. Bend the desired flanges out 90° on both sides of
the fireplace. Slide the fireplace into the framed
opening until the flanges contact the front surfaces
of the framing. Level the unit and secure it firmly in
place.
4. The standoffs are adjustable for different drywall
thicknesses. The unit is shipped from the factory at
1/2” (13 mm). Loosen the four (4) screws securing
each standoff to the top of the fireplace. Slide the
standoff back. Tighten the screws. This yields a 5/8”
(16 mm) thick drywall space. Removing the standoff
and having the tabs on the standoff face the rear of
the unit yields a 3/4” (19 mm) drywall space. (Fig. 4)
NOTE: Drywall must stop at standoffs and not touch
top of unit.

For elevations above 4,500 feet (1,370 m) in USA,
installations must be in accordance with the current ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 and/or local codes having jurisdiction.
In Canada, please consult provincial and/or local
authorities having jurisdiction for installations at
elevations above 4,500 feet (1,370 m).
Gas Line Installation
When purging the gas lines, the front window frame assembly must be removed.
The gas pipeline can be brought in through the rear
of the appliance as well as the bottom. Knockouts are
provided on the bottom behind the valve to allow for the
gas pipe installation and testing of any gas connection.
It is most convenient to bring the gas line in from the
rear right side of the valve as this allows fan installation
or removal without disconnecting the gas line.
The gas line connection can be made with properly
tinned 3/8” copper tubing, 3/8” rigid pipe or an approved flex connector. Since some municipalities have
additional local codes, it is always best to consult your
local authority and the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54 in the USA or the CSA-B149.1 installation code.

The gas control is equipped with a captured screw type
pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to provide a 1/8” test point up stream of the control.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved
fittings. Always provide a union when using black iron
pipe so the gas line can be easily disconnected for
burner or fan servicing. See gas specification for pressure details and ratings.
The fireplace valve must not be subjected to any test
pressures exceeding 1/2 psi. Isolate or disconnect this
and any other gas appliance control from the gas line
when pressure testing.
Remote ON/OFF Switch
Installation
1. Carefully unwrap the remote wire that is attached to
the valve. There are two 1/2” (13 mm) knockouts,
one on each side of the outer casing.
2. Remove the knockout desired and insert the plastic
snap bushing on the remote wire in the 1/2” hole.
Feed the remote wire through the outer casing.
3. Attach the wire to an ON/OFF switch and install the
switch into the receptacle box. (Fig. 6)

General Information Assembling Vent Pipes
Canadian Installations:
Venting system must be installed in accordance with the
current CSA-B149.1 installation code.
USA Installations:
The venting system must conform with local codes and/
or the current National Fuel Gas code ANSI Z223.1/
NFPA 54.
Only venting components manufactured by CFM Corporation can be used in Direct Vent systems.
Flex Vent Pipes
* Be sure the vent is actually crushed before proceeding. Apply a tug to be sure the vent will not slip off the
collars.
Repeat process with 7” flex vent pipe. The same procedure must be performed on the vent side.
Hose Clamp
Apply High Temperature Sealant
Before joining the flex vent pipe to the unit, apply a
bead of high temperature sealant* (provided) to the 4”
pipe exiting the fireplace. Secure flex vent pipe in place
with a hose clamp (provided).
*Be sure the flex pipe overlaps at least 1” (25 mm) onto
the collars of the fireplace and termination. If the termination has an internal bead, be sure to overlap and
secure 1” (25 mm) past the bead.

Twist Lock Pipes
29
When using CFM Corporation twist-lock pipe, it is not
necessary to use sealant on the joints. The only areas
of the venting system that need to be sealed with high
temperature silicone sealant are the sliding joint of any
telescopic vent section used in the system.

23
To join the twist lock pipes together, simply align the
beads of the male end with the grooves of the female
end, then while bringing the pipe together, twist the pipe
until the flange on the female end contacts the external
flange on the male end. It is recommended that you
secure the joints with three (3) sheet metal screws,
however this is not mandatory with twist lock pipe.

djt in conjunction with the
following vent installation instructions to determine the
relationship of the vertical and horizontal dimensions of
the vent system.
1. Determine the height of the center of the horizontal
vent pipe exiting through the outer wall. Using this
dimension on the Sidewall Vent Graph (Fig. 11)
locate the point intersecting with slanted graph line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical
line to the bottom of the graph.
3. Select the indicated dimension, and position the
fireplace in accordance with same.
Example A:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the
fireplace is 11’ (3.4 m) the horizontal run to the face
of the outer wall must not exceed 14’ (4.3 m).
Example B:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is
7’ (2.14 m), the horizontal run to the face of the outer
wall must not exceed 8¹⁄₂’ (2.6 m).

When vent termination exits through foundations less
than 20” below siding outcrop, the vent pipe must
flush up with the siding. It is always best to locate the
fireplace in such a way that minimizes the number of
offsets and horizontal vent length.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent
pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace to the face of
the outer wall.
Horizontal plane means no vertical rise exists on this
portion of the vent assembly.
• The maximum horizontal vent run is 20 ft. (6.1 m)
when the vertical vent rise is 7¹⁄₂ ft. (2.3 m). (Fig. 21)
• The maximum number of 90° elbows per side wall
installation is three (3).

5. While sliding the fireplace into position, lift up the end
of the flex pipe and slip it through the firestop. *Be
careful not to extend the flex too much. The flex pipe
needs to have an immediate rise before going horizontal. NOTE: Be careful not to distort the outer flex
as this will affect the performance of the fireplace.
6. Secure the collar to the firestop by bending the tab
out on the firestop and running a screw through the
tab and collar.
7. From outside the house, slide the termination onto
the collars sticking through the firestop.

Below Grade Installations
When it is not possible to meet the required vent terminal clearances of 12” (305 mm) above grade level
a snorkel vent kit #7TDVSNORK is required. It allows
installation depth of down to 7” (178 mm) below grade
level. The 7” is measured from the center of the horizontal vent pipe as it penetrates through the wall.
If venting system is installed below
ground, we recommend a window well with
adequate and proper drainage.
Do not back fill around snorkel. A
clearance of at least 4” (102 mm) must be
maintained between the snorkel and the
soil.
If the foundation is recessed, use recess brackets (not
supplied) for securing lower portion of the snorkel.
Fasten brackets to wall first, then secure to snorkel
with self drilling #8 x 1/2 sheet metal screws. It will be
necessary to extend vent pipes out as far as protruding
wall face. (Fig. 31)
Ensure sidewall venting clearances are observed.
The maximum horizontal run with 24”
vertical rise is 36” (914 mm) from the
back of the fireplace to the face of the
exterior wall. See vent graph (Page 12) for
extended horizontal run if the vertical rise
exceeds 24” (610 mm).
1. Establish vent hole through the wall. (Fig. 13)
2. Remove soil to a depth of approximately 16”
(406mm) below base of snorkel. Install window
well (not supplied). Refill hole with 12” (305 mm) of
coarse gravel leaving a clearance of approximately
4” (102 mm) below snorkel. (Fig. 30)
3. Install vent system. See Page 12, Steps 2 through 5.
4. Ensure a watertight seal is made around the vent
pipe coming through the wall.
5. Apply high temperature sealant caulking (supplied)
around the 4” and 7” snorkel collars.
6. Slide into the vent pipe and secure to the wall.
7. Level the soil to maintain a 4” (102 mm) clearance
below snorkel. (Fig. 30)

The vent chart should be read in conjunction with the
following vent installation instructions to determine the
relationship of the vertical and horizontal dimensions of
the vent system.
1. Determine the height of the center of the horizontal
vent pipe exiting through the outer wall. Using this
dimension on the Sidewall Vent Graph (Fig. 38),
locate the point intersecting with the slanted graph
line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical
line to the bottom of the graph.
3. Select the indicated dimension, and position the
fireplace in accordance with same.
Example A:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the fireplace
is 11’ (3.4 m) the horizontal run to the face of the outer
wall must not exceed 14’ (4.3 m).
Example B:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is 7’
(2.14 m), the horizontal run to the face of the outer wall
must not exceed 8¹⁄₂’ (2.6 m).

Vertical Sidewall Applications
Since it is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between
the combustion air intake and the flue
gas exhaust, certain limitations as to vent
configurations apply and must be strictly
adhered to.
The vent graph showing the relationship between vertical and horizontal side wall venting will help to determine the various dimensions allowable.
Minimum clearance between vent pipes and
combustible materials is one 1” (25 mm)
on top, bottom and sides unless otherwise
noted.

When the vent termination exits through foundations
less than 20” (508 mm) below siding outcrop, the vent
pipe must flush up with the siding.
It is always best to locate the fireplace in such a way
that minimizes the number of offsets and horizontal
vent length of vent pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace to the face of the outer wall.

side wall installation is two (2). These elbows can be
installed in either the vertical or horizontal run.
For each 45° elbow installed in the horizontal run,
the length of the horizontal run MUST be reduced by
18” (457 mm). This does not apply if the 45° elbows
are installed on the vertical part of the vent system.
The maximum number of elbow degrees in a system
is 270°. (Fig. 42)
installations is three (3).
If a 90° elbow is fitted directly onto the fireplace
flange the maximum horizontal vent run before the
termination or a vertical rise is 36” (914 mm).
If a 90° elbow is used in the horizontal vent run
(level height maintained) the maximum horizontal
vent length is reduced by 36” (914 mm). This does
not apply if the 90° elbows are used to increase or
redirect a vertical rise.
Example: According to the chart the maximum
horizontal vent length in a system with a 7.5’ (2.3 m)
vertical rise is 20’ (6 m) and if a 90° is required in
the horizontal vent it must be reduced to 17’ (5.2 m).
In Figure 41, Dimension A plus B must not be
greater than 17’ (5.2 m).

Vertical Sidewall Installations
STEP 1
Locate vent opening on the wall. It may be necessary
to first position the fireplace and measure to obtain hole
location. Depending on whether the wall is combustible
or noncombustible, cut opening to size. (Fig. 43)
For combustible walls first frame in opening.
Combustible Walls: (Fig. 43) Cut a 9³⁄₈”H x 9³⁄₈”W (240
x 240 mm) hole through the exterior wall and frame as
shown.
Noncombustible Walls: (Fig. 43) Hole opening must
be 7¹⁄₂” (190 mm) in diameter.
STEP 3
Using appropriate venting component(s) attach to
fireplace with three (3) screws. (Fig. 45) Follow with the
installation of the inner and outer elbow. Again secure
joints with three (3) sheet metal screws.
STEP 4
Measure the horizontal length requirement including
a 2” (51 mm) overlap, ie from the elbow to the outside
wall face plus 2” (51 mm) (or the distance required if
installing a second 90° elbow). (Fig. 45)
Always install horizontal venting on a level
plane.

STEP 5
Use appropriate length of pipe sections - telescopic or
fixed - and install the horizontal vent sections. The sections which go through the wall are packaged with the
starter kit, and can be cut to suit if necessary. (Fig. 46)
Sealing vent pipe and firestop gaps with
high temperature sealant will restrict cold
air being drawn in around fireplace.
FP1243
Fig. 47 Apply high temperature sealant to collars or terminations.
Below Grade Installations
FP1242
Fig. 46 Through the wall.
STEP 6
Guide the vent terminations 4” and 7” collars into their
respective vent pipes. Double check that the vent pipes
overlap the collars by 2” (51mm). Secure the termination to the wall with screws provided and caulk around
the wall plate to weatherproof. (Fig. 23) As an alternative to screwing the termination directly to the wall you
may also use expanding plugs or an approved exterior
construction adhesive. You may also attach the termination with screws through the inner body into the 4”
(102 mm) vent pipe however for this method you must
extend the 4” (102 mm) pipe approximately 6” (152 mm)
beyond the outer face of the wall.
Support horizontal pipes every 3’ (914 mm) with metal
pipe straps. Make sure the horizontal vent pipe is installed on a level horizontal plane.
20010175
When it is not possible to meet the required vent terminal clearances of 12” (305 mm) above grade level a
snorkel vent kit is recommended. It allows installation
depth of down to 7” (178 mm) below grade level. The
7” is measured from the center of the horizontal vent
pipe as it penetrates through the wall.
If venting system is installed below
ground, we recommend a window well with
adequate and proper drainage.
Ensure sidewall venting clearances are observed.
If installing a snorkel a minimum 24” (610 mm) vertical
rise is necessary. The maximum horizontal run with
the 24” (610 mm) vertical pipe is 36” (914 mm). This
measurement is taken from the collar of the fireplace
(or transition elbow) to the face of the exterior wall.
Refer to the Sidewall Vent Graph for extended
horizontal run if the vertical rise exceeds 24” (610 mm).
1. Establish vent hole through the wall. (Fig. 43)
2. Remove soil to a depth of approximately 16” (406
mm) below base of snorkel. Install drain pipe. Install
window well (not supplied). Refill hole with 12”
(305mm) of coarse gravel leaving a clearance of approximately 4” (102 mm) below snorkel. (Fig. 48)
3. Install vent system.
4. Ensure a watertight seal is made around the vent
pipe coming through the wall.
5. Apply high temperature sealant caulking (supplied)
around the 4” and 7 “ snorkel collars.
6. Slide the snorkel into the vent pipes and secure to
the wall.
7. Level the soil to maintain a 4” (102 mm) clearance
below snorkel. (Fig. 48)

NOTE: Before trouble shooting the gas control system, be sure external gas shut off is in the “On” position.
WARNING: BEFORE DOING ANY GAS CONTROL SERVICE WORK, REMOVE GLASS FRONT.
SYMPTOM
1. Spark ignitor will not light
2. Pilot will not stay lit after
carefully following lighting
instructions.
3. Pilot burning, no gas to
main burner
4. Frequent pilot outage
problem.
32
POSSIBLE CAUSES
CORRECTIVE ACTION
A. Defective or misaligned
electrode at pilot.
Using a match, light pilot. If pilot lights, turn off
pilot and push the red button again. If pilot will not
light - check gap at electrode and pilot-should be
1/8” to have a strong spark.
B. Defective ignitor (Push Button)
Push Piezo Ignitor Button. Check for spark at
electrode and pilot. If no spark to pilot, and elec
trode wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
A. Defective pilot generator
(thermocouple), remote wall
switch.
Check pilot flame. Must impinge on thermo
couple/thermopile. Note: this pilot burner assem
bly utilizes both-a thermocouple and a thermopile.
The thermocouple operates the main valve
operation (On and Off). Clean and or adjust pilot for
maximum flame impingement on thermopile and
thermocouple.
B. Defective automatic valve
Turn valve knob to “Pilot”. Maintain flow to pilot;
milivolt meter should read greater than 10 mV. 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.
A. Wall switch or wires defective
Check wall switch and wires for proper connec
tions. Jumper wire accross terminals at wall
switch, if burner comes on, replace defective wall
switch. If okay, jumper wires across wall switch
wires at valve, if burner comes on, wires are faulty
or connections are bad.
B. Thermopile may not be
generating sufficient
millivoltage.
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 wall switch wires may be grounded.
Remove wall switch wires from valve terminals if
pilot now stays lit, trace wall switch wiring for
ground. May be grounded to fireplace or gas
supply.
3. Check thermopile with millivolt meter. Take
reading at thermopile terminals of gas valve.
Should read 250-300 millivolts (minimum 150)
while holding valve knob depressed in pilot
position and wall switch “Off”. Replace faulty
thermopile if reading is below specified minimum.
C. Plugged burner orifice.
Check burner orifices for debris and remove.
D. Defective automatic valve
operator.
Turn valve knob to “On”, place wall switch to “On”
millivolt meter should read greater than 100 mV. If
the reading is okay and the burner does not come
on, replace the gas valve.
A. Pilot flame may be too low
or blowing (high) causing the
pilot safety to drop out.
Clean and/or adjust pilot flame for maximum flame
impingement on thermopile and thermocouple.
B. Possible blockage of the vent
terminal.
Check the vent terminal for blockage (recycling the
flue gases)

Maintenance
Burner and Burner Compartment
It is important to keep the burner and the burner
compartment clean. At least once per year the logs and
lava rock/ember material should be removed and the
burner compartment vacuumed and wiped out. Remove
and refit the logs as per the instructions in this manual.
Always handle the logs with care as they
are fragile and may also be hot if the
fireplace has been in use.
To obtain proper operation, it is imperative that the pilot
and burner’s flame characteristics are steady, not lifting
or floating.
Typically, the top 3/8” to 1/2” of the thermopile should
be engulfed in the pilot flame. (Refer to Page 59, Figure
60)
To adjust pilot burner: (by qualified service technician)
1. Remove pilot adjustment cap
2. Adjust pilot screw to provide properly sized flame.
FK12 Fan Assembly
