Installation
Warranty and Installation Information:
The Montigo warranty will be voided by, and Montigo disclaims any
responsibility for, the following actions:
Modification of the fireplace and/or components including vent
assembly or glass doors.
Use of any component part not manufactured or approved by
Montigo in combination with this Montigo fireplace system.
Installation other than as instructed in this manual.
Consult your local Gas Inspection Branch on installation requirements
for factory-built gas fireplaces. Installation & repairs should be done by
a qualified contractor.
Installations in Canada must conform to the current CAN/CGA
B-149.1 and .2 Gas Installation Code and local regulations. This appliance must be electrically grounded in accordance with CSA C22.1
Canadian Electrical Code Part 1 and/or Local Codes. See Appendix A
for installation within the State of Massachusetts.
System Installation / Sequence
of Operation
Follow these instructions to ensure the safe and
efficient operation of your Custom fireplace.
All connections are to be made Per. the instructions within this
Instruction Guide.
Ensure the wall switch is turned to the “OFF” position.
Installing The Fireplace
To install the fireplace:
The C-View fireplace system is an engineered fireplace system, and
will require you to provide the correct vent run and air supply information to the Engineering staff of Montigo. Note: The C-View fireplace
may be purchased as an open-front fireplace (no glass door), providing the the combustion air supply has been considered for the safe
operation of the fireplace.
Please consult with Montigo on the method which the volume of combustion air supply is to be delivered to the model of choice. C-View
fireplaces with a glass front may also take the combustion air from the
interior of the structure, and will be required to meet the requirements
as one without a glass front. C-View fireplaces which use air from the
exterior of the structure fall into the category of a ‘sealed combustion
type appliance’.
Fresh Air Supply:
Connect all of the fresh air supply for this fireplace to the lower vent
connections assuring no reduction or restriction to the air supply
occurs, even due to unexpected circumstances. Please consider automated dampers, particularly on the intake air supply in cold climates.
This is especialy important when the intake air is introduced from the
top down. Cold air has the tendency to settle to the lowest point in the
vent system.
For extra long air supply runs, Montigo will recommend an increase in
vent diameter. When changing the air supply from several incoming air
connections to one vent, consult this information with your contact at
Montigo. To ensure adequate operation of the vent system ensure the
size of the one vent is not less than the total sum of vents that you are
connecting to.
Energize the electrical control panel. The Power Vent motor should
run for three (3) minutes then automatically switch off.
Flue Gas vent run:
Turn the wall switch “ON”.
The C-View fireplace system may be installed with any certified UL
or ULC B-Vent. All the clearances to this B-Vent must be equivalent
to the manufacture’s specifications as outlined in the installation/
operation manual. The size of this B-vent is specified in the approval
process and cannot be reduced unless Montigo has re-evaluated your
system. If authorized to reduce your vent size you will be issued new
shop drawings reflecting the new vent connection size and specifications.
The vent system may be installed vertically or horizontally, to any
length, and may have numerous elbows. (Quantity of elbows as supplied to Montigo). The vent run may also be lower than the fireplace
flue gas outlet, or have a portion that is lower than the main vent run,
as long as Montigo has reviewed and engineered the entire system.
Montigo will then re-evaluate this information and size the Power Vent
to the vent restriction, and compensate for the pressure drop.
The power vent motor will start to run and develop a negative
pressure in the vent above the gas flue outlet. (This negative
pressure is monitored by a pressure switch located in the bottom
of the fireplace). When this negative pressure exceeds 0.02" WC,
the switch will close the connection on terminal strip #9 and #10
located in the electrical panel.
This will power up both relays supplying 24 Volts to the Honeywell
control valves located in the bottom of the fireplace. The glow pug
on the pilot system will ignite the pilots, and the sensor will identify
the presence of a pilot flame and turn the gas valve to fully open
position.
In the event that a pilot can not be established the electronic
monitoring system in the smart valve will repeat this process three
times. If the system is not successful in the third attempt the valve
will lock out.
To reset the system turn the wall switch “off”, and then switch back
“ON” to repeat this sequence.
Should the system NOT ignite, read the trouble shooting section
for additional information.
Important:
All dimensions, and design specifications are
subject to approval upon quotation of fireplace and associated equipment.
Page 4
Power Vent:
Montigo manufactures a variety of Power vent modules as large as
5KWatts. The Power vent is commonly placed either horizontally or
vertically at the end of the B-Vent run. However, we have an in-line
vent module available. This Inline Power vent is for installations where
an exterior module isn’t visually attractive, or permitted.
Also, In-line Power vents are more complex to install, primarily due to
the positive pressure in the vent system after the Power vent module.
Therefore this vent run after the Power vent module must be air-tight
due too the concern gas by-products may leak from the vent into the
structure.
All Power vent modules create a negative pressure before the module
and leaks in the vent draw air from the building and will not create a
safety hazard.

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.

Painting:
Refer to chart on page 3a for correct dimensions.
Finish drywall up to outside dimensions Q, and U. Use non
combustible J-track to finish edge of drywall. This will leave a 1/4"
opening to allow the CVIEW Door Frame to be slid into place.
Special care is recommended by the Master Painters and Decorators
Association, when painting the fireplace surrounds, to select and apply
a quality Alkyd sealer prior to the applying of latex paints. This is
to prevent leaching of water from evaporation and causing a brownish
staining effect to paint over coats.

MIN
The C-View Fireplace is supplied with an external electrical Control
Panel pre-wired by the factory. The standard gas control cable is 15
feet between the fireplace and the external panel, additional length
is available upon request. The external panel is 16" x 16" x 6" and
must be located in an accessible location. The C-View requires 120V
electrical supply on a dedicated 15 amp fuse or circuit breaker to
the Control Panel
Installations in Canada must be electrically grounded in accordance
with CSA C22.1 Canadian Electrical Code Part 1 and/or Local Codes.
Installations in the USA must be electrically grounded in accordance
with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70-1987.

Installing The Gas Line
The gas connection is located on the right side of the lower portion of
the fireplace body. The manufacturer requires a service shut off valve
located in an accessible location to isolate the gas supply. The gas
line must be installed, and tested for leaks before finishing the CVIEW
Fireplace. Natural Gas requires a minimum inlet gas supply pressure
of 5.5" W.C. & a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C. Propane requires a
minimum inlet gas supply pressure of 11" W.C. & a manifold pressure
of 10" W.C. The manifold outlet pressure is set from the factory to the
appropriate pressure and should be verified. The manufacturer has
provided an inlet pressure tap location in the fireplace for easy access.
The control valves have a provision to remove a 1/8 plug so that a
hose barb fitting can be installed to check pressure.
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.

Installation Requirements
 An intake grill will have to be installed with the same size of the total opening
as the combined air supply ducts on the unit. Make sure you have calculated
the restriction and selected the proper grill size.
 The C-View fireplace is supplied with two or more combustion air duct
connection points. Do not reduce the size of the air supply system, or restrict
the air supply in any way. On any combustion air supply run longer than 25
feet the duct should be increased in size to prevent a restriction.
 A vacuum safety switch, located under the burners, will monitor the combustion
air supply pressure and will prevent the burner from igniting, or continuing
to burn if the pressure is negative, past 0.3WC.
 For air supply runs over 25 feet consult with Montigo to have the vent supply
re-sized.

Removing and Installing
the Door
Removing the door:
The C-View-PFC Series Door-Window outer trim are held in place by
magnets, and the Door-window frames are held in place by fine-thread
10-24 screws. Follow the process below to remove, or install the items
described.
Figure 14. The Fireplace as it is received from Montigo.
Figure 15. (Step 2) Remove the Door-window trim by grasping the metal
firmly and pull it free it from the frame. Note: Hold it as shown in Step 2
to release the hold of the magnets.
 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 this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure of

 Always keep the fireplace area clear and free of combustible materials, as well as gasoline and other flammable vapours 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
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.
Figure 14. Step 1. (Door
Trim )
Figure 15. Step 2. (removal of
Trim)
 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
8. 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.
WARNING!
Do not attempt to clean glass when hot.

The Montigo Power Venter will generate a negative pressure in the
vent system. This pressure is monitored by a pressure sensing switch
located in the bottom of the fireplaces.
• The switch has a normally open contact and is connected by a nine
conductor cable to the electrical control panel.
• The two wires are red and brown and are connected to the terminal
strip in the electrical control panel, terminal, #9 and #10.
The combustion air is supplied to the bottom of the fireplace and is
monitored by a pressure sensing switch that is also located in the
bottom of the fireplace. If there is a shortage of air for any reason,
the combustion air monitoring switch will open, closing the contacts,
prevent the burner from igniting.
