This manual contains instructions for Installation, Operation & Maintenance. Please read this entire
manual before you install and use your new room heater. Failure to follow instructions may result in
property damage, bodily injury, or even death.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES:
1) When installing your stove, particular attention should be paid to fire protection. If this room heater is not properly
installed, a house fire may result. To reduce the risk of fire, follow the installation instructions. Contact local building, fire
officials or authority having jurisdiction about restrictions, installation inspection and permit requirements in your area.
2) CAUTION: Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start
or “freshen up” a fire in this heater. Keep all such liquids well away from the heater while it is in use.
3) During operation, if any part of the stove starts to glow, the stove is in an overfired condition. Close the air controls
completely by pulling them out, until the glowing has stopped. OVERFIRING VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY!
4) Cool ashes should be disposed of carefully, using a metal container.
5) Do not burn wet or green wood. Store wood in a dry location.
6) DO NOT BURN GARBAGE OR FLAMMABLE FLUIDS SUCH AS GASOLINE, NAPHTHA OR ENGINE OIL. Do not
burn treated wood, or wood with salt (driftwood, etc.). Burning materials other than wood (including charcoal) under
adverse conditions may generate carbon monoxide in the home, resulting in illness or possible death.
7) Do not permit creosote or soot to accumulate excessively in the chimney or inside the firebox.
8) Check your chimney system thoroughly when installing into an existing metal or masonry chimney. Seek professional advice if in doubt about its condition.
9) Do not connect this unit to a chimnney flue already serving another appliance.
10) Comply with all minimum clearances to combustibles
as shown

LISTINGS & SAFETY CAUTIONS
These installation instructions describe the installation and
operation of the QUADRA-FIRE 3100 woodstove. This stove
meets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 1990
particulate emission standards. The 3100 is listed by OMNI-Test
Laboratories, Inc. to UL Safety Standard 1482, and ULC S627,
and (UM) 84-HUD. The 3100 is approved for mobile home
installations when not installed in a sleeping room and when an
outside combustion air inlet is provided. The structural integrity
of the mobile home floor, ceiling, and walls must be maintained.
The stove must be properly grounded to the frame of the
mobile home and use only listed double-wall connector pipe.
Outside Air Kit, Part 831-1780, must be installed in a mobile
home installation.
Check with your local building code agency before you begin
your installation to ensure compliance with local codes, including
the need for permits and follow-up inspections. Be sure local
building codes do not supersede UL specifications and always
obtain a building permit so that insurance protection benefits
cannot be unexpectedly cancelled. If any assistance is required
during installation, please contact your local dealer.
Inspect and clean vent system frequently in accordance with the
instructions contained in this manual. Do not connect this unit
to a chimney serving another appliance.
When using optional Blower, Part 831-1701, route power cord
away from unit. Do not route cord under or in front of appliance.
Do not elevate fire. Build wood fire directly on firebrick.
Do not overfire - if heater or chimney connector glows, you are
overfiring. Stove thermometer recommended.
Operate only with the door closed. Open only to add fuel to
the fire. Operating with the door open can cause hot embers or
sparks to fall out and a fire may result.
INSTALLATION MATERIALS NEEDED FOR SAFETY
CHIMNEY CONNECTOR (also known as flue pipe or stove
pipe): The chimney connector joins the stove to the chimney
(see page 10). It must be 6” (152mm) minimum diameter 24
MSG black or blued steel, or an approved air-insulated double
wall venting pipe.
THIMBLE: A manufactured or site-constructed device installed in
combustible walls through which the chimney connector passes
to the chimney (see pages 11- 12). It is intended to keep the
walls from igniting.
CHIMNEY SYSTEMS:
A. APPROVED MASONRY (see specifications on page
10) with at least 5/8” (16mm) fire clay lining joined with
refractory cement or other listed system suitable for use
with wood stoves.
B. PREFABRICATED 6" (152mm) listed high temperature (UL
103 HT or ULC S629M) chimney. Components required by
manufacturers for installation such as the chimney support
base, firestop (as appropriate), attic insulation shield,
insulated tee, etc., are necessary to assure a safe chimney
installation. Use only components manufactured for the
chimney. Chimney installation should meet NFPA 211
standards.
Page 4
FIRE SAFETY: To provide reasonable fire safety, the following should
be given serious consideration:
1. Install at least one smoke detector on each floor of your home
to ensure your safety. They should be located away from the
heating appliance and close to the sleeping areas. Follow
the smoke detector manufacturer’s placement and installation
instructions, and be sure to maintain regularly.
2.
A conveniently located Class A fire extinguisher to contend with
small fires resulting from burning embers.
3.
A practiced evacuation plan, consisting of at least two escape
routes.
4.
A plan to deal with a chimney fire as follows:
In the event of a chimney fire:
A.
B.
C.
D.
Notify fire department
Prepare occupants for immediate evacuation.
Close all openings into the stove.
While awaiting fire department, watch for ignition of
adjacent combustibles from overheated stove pipe, hot
embers or sparks from the chimney.
VENTING SYSTEM
The venting system consists of a chimney connector and a chimney.
These get extremely hot during use. Temperatures inside the
chimney may exceed 2000°F (1100°C) in the event of a creosote
fire. To protect against the possibility of a house fire, the chimney
connector and chimney must be properly installed and maintained.
An approved thimble must be used when a connection is made
through a combustible wall to a chimney. A chimney support package
must be used when a connection is made through the ceiling
to a prefabricated chimney. These accessories are absolutely
necessary to provide safe clearances to combustible wall and ceiling
material. Follow venting manufacturer’s clearances when installing
venting system.
This stove may be connected to a lined masonry chimney or a listed
high temperature prefabricated approved metal chimney. Do not
connect it to a chimney serving another appliance. To do so will
affect the safe operation of both appliances.
WARNING! NEVER DRAW OUTSIDE COMBUSTION AIR FROM A
WALL, FLOOR OR CEILING CAVITY OR FROM ANY ENCLOSED
SPACE SUCH AS AN ATTIC OR GARAGE.
WARNING! DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE THIS WOODSTOVE
WITHOUT READING AND UNDERSTANDING THESE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS THOROUGHLY. FAILURE TO OPERATE
THIS APPLIANCE PROPERLY MAY CAUSE A HOUSE FIRE.
WARNING! THIS APPLIANCE IS HOT WHILE IN OPERATION
AND MAY REMAIN SO UP TO 40 MINUTES OR LONGER AFTER
THERE IS NO FUEL IN THE FIREBOX. IF THIS APPLIANCE IS

LOCATING YOUR STOVE
WHEN LOCATING YOUR STOVE consider safety, convenience, traffic flow, and the fact that the stove will need a chimney
and chimney connector. It is a good idea to plan your installation on paper, using exact measurements for clearances and
floor protection, before actually beginning the installation. If you’re not using an existing chimney, place the stove where
there will be a clear passage for a factory-built listed chimney through the ceiling and roof.
AVOID FIRE: Maintain the designated clearances to combustibles. Insulation must not touch the chimney. You must maintain
the designated air space clearance around the chimney. This space around a chimney is necessary to allow natural heat
removal from the area. Insulation in this space will cause a heat buildup, which may ignite wood framing. NOTE: Clearances
may only be reduced by means approved by the regulatory authority having jurisdiction.
WE RECOMMEND that a qualified building inspector and your insurance company representative review your plans before
and after installation.
VENT SPECIFICATIONS
Single Wall: Six inch (6”) (152mm) diameter, minimum 24 MSG black or blued steel connector pipe, with a listed factory-built
chimney type UL103 HT* suitable for use with solid fuels, or a masonry chimney, and the referenced clearances.
Double Wall/Mobile Home: Six inch (6”) (152mm) diameter, listed double wall air insulated connector pipe with listed
factory-built UL103 HT* Class “A” chimney, or a masonry chimney (Mobile Home must be equipped with a spark arrestor),

FLOOR PROTECTION
FLOOR PROTECTION: Floor protector must be noncombustible material, extending beneath heater and to the front/sides/rear as
indicated. The floor must be non-combustible or otherwise adequately protected from radiant heat given off by the unit and from
sparks and falling embers. A layer of thin brick or ceramic tile over a combustible floor is not sufficient.
In US installations, it is necessary to install a floor protector of 3/8" (10mm) thick metal clad millboard or equivalent at least 16"
(406mm) in front of glass door and 8" (203mm) to both sides of the fuel loading door. Open the door and measure 8” (203mm)
from the side edge of the opening in the face of the stove. See *exception below.
In Canada, similar floor protection must be provided 18" (457mm) in front and 8" (203mm) from the sides and rear of the
stove. See *exception below.
*EXCEPTION: Non-combustile floor protections must extend beneath the flue pipe when installed with horizontal venting
and extend 2” (51mm) beyond each side.

CHIMNEY HEIGHT/DRAFT
To be sure that your Quadra-Fire stove burns properly, the chimney draft (static pressure) should be approximately -.10”
water column (W.C.) during a high burn and -.04” W.C. during a low burn, measured 6” (152mm) above the top of the stove
after one hour of operation at each burn setting.
NOTE: These are guidelines only, and may vary somewhat for individual installations.
Your Quadra-Fire stove was designed for and tested on a 6” (152mm) chimney, 12’-14’ (360-420cm) high, (includes stove
height) measured from the base of the stove. The further your stack height or diameter varies from this configuration, the
possibility of performance problems exists. In addition, exterior conditions such as roof line, surrounding trees, prevailing
winds and nearby hills can influence stove performance. Your local dealer is the expert in your geographic area and can
usually make suggestions or discover solutions that will easily correct your flue problem, allowing your woodstove and its
flue system to operate correctly and provide safe and economical heat for your home.
A masonry chimney or a listed factory-built UL103 HT Class “A” chimney must be the required height above the roof and
any other nearby obstructions. The chimney must be at least 3’ (91cm) higher than the highest point where it passes
through the roof and at least 2’ (61cm) higher than the highest part of the roof or structure that is within 10’ (305cm) of the
chimney, measured horizontally. See 2-10-3 Rule below.
These are safety requirements and are not meant to assure proper flue draft.
We recommend using a minimum total system height of 12' (360cm), measured from the flue collar to the top of the
chimney (not including chimney cap).
Availability of combustion air: A source of air (oxygen) is necessary in order for combustion to take place. It is important
to realize that whatever combustion air is consumed by the fire must be replaced. If you are using room air, the air is
replaced via air leakage that occurs around windows and under doors, etc. However, in most newly constructed houses,
mobile homes, or even existing homes that are fitted with tightly sealed doors and windows, the area from which the
combustion air is taken is relatively air tight. In these cases, an outside air source must be made available to feed
combustion air from outside the home into the stove. An Outside Air Kit is available for your stove as an option, Part
831-1780. The kit is a requirement for mobile home installations. Check with the local authorities in your area for
the requirements in your location.

FLUE SYSTEMS
There are two separate and different parts to a flue system: the
chimney connector and the chimney itself.
A.
B.
Single wall connector or stove pipe. This must be at least
24 gauge mild steel or 26 gauge blue steel. The sections
must be attached to the stove and to each other with the
crimped (male) end pointing toward the stove. See Figure
10A. All joints, including the connection at the stove collar,
should be secured with three sheet metal screws. Make
sure to follow the minimum clearances to combustibles
as set out on page 7 of this manual. Where passage
through the wall, or partition of combustible construction is
desired, the installation shall conform to CAN/CSA-B365
(Canada).
Factory-built listed chimney connector (vented). A listed
connector (vented) must be used when installing this unit
in a mobile home. The listed connectors must conform to
each other to ensure a proper fit and seal.

MASONRY CHIMNEY (Cont’d)
The flue should be checked to determine that it is not too
large for the stove. NFPA 211 allows the cross-sectional
area of the flue to be no more than 3 times the crosssectional area of the flue collar of the stove (28 x 3 =
84 square inches). It is recommended that a chimney
with a larger diameter than 6” (152mm) be relined,
since the oversized flue can cause poor performance
and contribute to the accumulation of creosote. (See
page 9 for more information about troubleshooting draft
problems).
CAUTION! DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY
FLUE SERVING ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
When connecting the stove through a combustible wall to
a masonry chimney, special methods are needed. There
are several ways to make this connection, including
the construction of a masonry thimble. In Canada, the
installation shall conform to CAN/CSA-B365. Check with
your local building authorities and/or consult the National
Fire Protection Association (NFPA 211). Refer to Figure

For optimal performance, masonry chimneys used to vent this
appliance should be lined with a 6" (152mm) stainless steel
liner. Installations into a clay flue without a stainless steel liner
may reduce draw which affects performance, cause the glass
to darken and produce excessive creosote.
Ensure that a masonry chimney meets the minimum standards
of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard
211. It must have at least a 5/8" (16mm) fire clay liner or a
listed chimney liner system. See Figure 10B. Make sure there
are no cracks, loose mortar or other signs of deterioration
and blockage. It is best to have the chimney inspected by a
professional, and be sure to have the chimney cleaned before
the stove is installed and operated.

SOLID PACK CHIMNEY WITH METAL SUPPORTS AS A THIMBLE
For the method of installation to a masonry chimney shown in Figures 13A & 13B on page 13, it will be necessary to
purchase a 12” (305mm) long 8" (203mm) inside diameter, section of prefabricated listed solid pack chimney to use as a
thimble. Purchase a wall spacer, trim collar, and a wall band manufactured to fit the chimney section you purchase.
The safety features of this system are two fold: 1) A 2" (51 mm) air space between the chimney section and combustible wall;
and, 2) The 1" (25mm) air space around the chimney connector as it passes through the chimney section to the chimney.
The location of the opening through the wall to the chimney must leave a minimum 18" (457mm) vertical clearance
between the connector pipe and the ceiling (or minimum recommended from pipe manufacturer) to prevent the
ceiling from catching fire.
Measure for the center-line as shown in Figure 11A below. Cut an opening in the wall large enough to accommodate the
outside dimension of the chimney section plus the minimum air space specified by its manufacturer. It may be necessary
to cut the wall studs and install a header and a sill frame to maintain the wall support. The hole in the chimney must have
at least an 8" (203mm) diameter fire clay liner or equivalent, secured with refractory mortar. If it is necessary to cut a hole
in the chimney liner, use extreme care to keep it from shattering.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ BEFORE USING STOVE
BURNING PROCESS
FINAL STAGE
In recent years there has been an increasing concern about
air quality. Much of the blame for poor air quality has been
placed on the burning of wood for home heating. In order
to improve the situation, we at Quadra-Fire have developed
cleaner-burning wood stoves that surpass the requirements
for emissions established by our governing agencies. These
wood stoves, like any other appliances, must be properly
operated in order to insure that they perform the way they are
designed to perform. Improper operation can turn most any
wood stove into a smoldering environmental hazard.
The final stage of burning is the charcoal stage. This
occurs when the flammable gases have been mostly
burned and only charcoal remains. This is a naturally
clean portion of the burn. The coals burn with hot blue
flames.
KINDLING or 1st STAGE
It helps to know a little about the actual process of burning
in order to understand what goes on inside a stove. The first
stage of burning is called the kindling stage. In this stage, the
wood is heated to a temperature high enough to evaporate
the moisture which is present in all wood. The wood will reach
the boiling point of water (212°F) and will not get any hotter
until the water is evaporated. This process takes heat from
the coals and tends to cool the stove.
Fire requires three things to burn: fuel, air and heat. So, if
heat is robbed from the stove during the drying stage, the
new load of wood has reduced the chances for a good clean
burn. For this reason, it is always best to burn dry, seasoned
firewood. When the wood isn’t dry, you must open the air
controls and burn the stove at a high burn setting for a longer
time to start it burning. The heat generated from the fire
should be warming your home and establishing the flue draft,
not evaporating the moisutre out of wet, unserasoned wood,
resulting in wasted heat.
The air control on the right side of the stove is called the
Start -Up Air Control; it is used during the kindling stage
of burning. It must be closed (pulled out) after the first 5
to 15 minutes.
It is very important to reload your stove while enough
lively hot coals remain in order to provide the amount of
heat needed to dry and rekindle the next load of wood.
It is best to open the air controls for a short while before
reloading. This livens up the coalbed. Open door
slowly so that ash or smoke does not exit stove through
opening. You should also break up any large chunks
and distribute the coals so that the new wood is laid
on hot coals.
Air quality is important to all of us, and if we choose to use
wood to heat our homes we should do so responsibly. To
do this we need to learn to burn our stoves in the cleanest
way possible. Doing this will allow us to continue using
our wood stoves for many years to come.
AIR CONTROLS
START-UP AIR SYSTEM
The combustion air enters at the rear of the firebox
through the rear air tubes. This air supply is controlled
by the Start-up Air Control.
PRIMARY AIR SYSTEM
The primary air enters at the upper front of the firebox,
near the top of the glass door. This preheated air
supplies the necessary fresh oxygen to mix with the
unburned gases, helping to create secondary, tertiary
and quaternary combustions. This air is regulated by the
Primary Control. For more primary air push control in,
for less air pull control out.
2nd STAGE
The next stage of burning, the secondary stage, is the period
when the wood gives off flammable gases which burn above
the fuel with bright flames. During this stage of burning it is
very important that the flames be maintained and not allowed
to go out. This will ensure the cleanest possible fire. If you
are adjusting your stove for a low burn rate, you should close
down the air to the point where you can still maintain some
flame. If the flames tend to go out, the stove is set too low
for your burning conditions. The air control in the center of
the stove beneath the ashcatcher, is the one used to adjust
the stove for burn rates. This is called the Primary Control.

WARNING: Do not operate with Start-Up Air
Control in the open position in excess of 15
minutes! Risk of extreme temperatures! Prolonged operation of this stove with the StartUp Air Control in the open position may cause
the combustible materials around the stove to
exceed safe temperature limits.
NOTE: These are approximate settings, and will vary with type of wood or chimney draft. Due to altitude and other environmental circumstances, this
operation information is a guideline only. Similar burn rates may be obtained using other settings unique to your situation.
BUILDING A FIRE
CAUTION: Before lighting your first fire in the stove: 1) Make certain that the baffle is correctly positioned. It
should be resting against the rear support; 2) Follow instructions on page 22 for cleaning plated surfaces, and;
3) Remove all labels from glass front.
CAUTION: Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start
or “freshen up” a fire in this heater. Keep all such liquids well away from the heater while it is in use.
There are many ways to build a fire. The basic principle is to light easily-ignitable tinder or paper, which ignites the fast burning
kindling, which in turn ignites the slow-burning firewood. Here is one method that works well:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Place several wads of crushed paper on the firebox floor. Heating the flue with slightly crumpled newspaper before
adding kindling keeps smoke to a minimum.
Lay small dry sticks of kindling on top of the paper.
Open Start-Up Air Control and Primary Air Control fully.
Make sure that no matches or other combustibles are in the immediate area of the stove. Be sure the room is adequately
ventilated and the flue unobstructed.
Light the paper in the stove. NEVER light or rekindle stove with kerosene, gasoline, or charcoal lighter fluid; the
results can be fatal.
Once the kindling is burning quickly, add several full-length logs 3” (76mm) or 4” (102mm) in diameter. Be careful not
to smother the fire. Stack the pieces of wood carefully: near enough to keep each other hot, but far enough away from
each other to allow adequate air flow between them.
When ready to reload the stove, add more logs. Large logs burn slowly, holding a fire longer. Small logs burn fast
and hot, giving quick heat.
Adjust the Start-Up Air Control and Primary Control; the more you close down the Primary Control, the lower and slower
the fire will burn. The more you open the Primary Control, the more heat will be produced. The Start-Up Air Control
is only used for the first 5 to 15 minutes.
As long as there are hot coals, repeating steps 7 and 8 will maintain a continuous fire throughout the season.
NOTE: The special high temperature paint that your stove is finished with will cure as your stove heats. You will notice an
odor and perhaps see some vapor rise from the stove surface; this is normal. We recommend that you open a window
until the odor dissipates and paint is cured.
NOTE: Stove should be run full open for 15 minutes a day to keep air passages clean.
WARNING! ALWAYS OPERATE THIS APPLIANCE WITH THE DOOR
CLOSED AND LATCHED EXCEPT DURING START-UP AND REFUELING .
Page 20
WARNING! DO NOT LEAVE THE FIRE UNATTENDED WHEN THE DOOR
IS UNLATCHED. UNSTABLE FIREWOOD COULD FALL OUT OF THE
FIREBOX CREATING A FIRE HAZARD TO YOUR HOME.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (Cont’d)
OPACITY
This is the measure of how cleanly your stove is burning. Opacity is measured in percent; 100% opacity is when an object
is totally obscured by the smoke column from a chimney, and 0% opacity means that no smoke column can be seen. As you
become familiar with your stove, you should periodically check the opacity. This will allow you to know how to burn your stove
as nearly smoke-free as possible (goal of 0% opacity).
BURN RATES
STARTING FIRE: Open (push in) both controls fully. After a wood load has been burning for 5 to 15 minutes (longer for very
large pieces) close the Start-Up Air Control by pulling it out (to the right of the stove).
HIGH: Leave the Primary Air Control fully open (center of stove under the ashcatcher). It is important to do this when reloading
the stove. Failure to do this could result in excessive emissions (opacity).
After a wood load has been burning for 5 to 15 minutes on High to achieve the following burn rates
set the controls as listed below:
MEDIUM HIGH: Close the Primary Air Control to 1-1/4” to 2-1/2” (32-64mm) open, Start-Up Air is closed.
MEDIUM LOW: Close the Primary Control to 1” - 1-1/4” (25-32mm) open. Start-Up Air is closed.
LOW: Gradually close down the Primary Control, making sure to maintain flames in the stove. (Star-Up Air is closed.) It is very
important to maintain flames in your stove during the first few hours of a low burn to avoid excessive air pollution.
WOOD SELECTION AND STORAGE
CAUTION: DO NOT STORE WOOD CLOSER THAN THE REQUIRED CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLE OF THE STOVE OR
WITHIN THE SPACE REQUIRED FOR LOADING WOOD AND ASH REMOVAL.
Burn only dry seasoned wood. Store wood under cover, out of the rain and snow. Dry and well-seasoned wood will not only
minimize the chance of creosote formation, but will give you the most efficient fire. Even dry wood contains at least 15% moisture
by weight, and should be burned hot enough to keep the chimney hot for as long as it takes to dry the wood out - about one hour.
It is a waste of energy to burn unseasoned wood of any kind.
Dead wood lying on the forest floor should be considered wet, and requires full seasoning time. Standing dead wood can
be considered to be about two-thirds seasoned. To tell if wood is dry enough to burn, check the ends of the logs. If there
are cracks radiating in all directions from the center, it is dry. If your wood sizzles in the fire, even though the surface is
dry, it may not be fully cured.
Splitting wood before it is stored reduces drying time. Wood should be stacked so that both ends of each piece are exposed to
air, since more drying occurs through the cut ends than the sides. This is true even with wood that has been split. Store wood
under cover, such as in a shed, or covered with a tarp, plastic, tar paper, sheets of scrap plywood, etc., as uncovered wood can
absorb water from rain or snow, delaying the seasoning process.
BLOWER OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
(see blower installation instructions on page 17)
If your Quadra-Fire wood stove is equipped with an optional blower, you should follow these guidelines:
1.
Initial (cold) start-up: Leave blower off until your stove is hot and a good coalbed is established. The blower may be
turned on approximately 15 minutes after loading the stove with fuel.
2.
High burn setting: The blower may be left on throughout the burn.
3.
Medium-Low or Medium-High burn setting: The blower should be left off until a good burn is established, then turned
on at a medium or high rate.
4.
Low burn setting: The blower tends to cool off the stove. If you are using wet wood or a very low burn setting, leave
blower off until the burn is well established. Then, if you wish, turn the blower on at a lower rate. Too high a blower setting
with a low burn rate may adversely affect emissions.
5.
The blower is equipped with a speed control. The highest blower speed is obtained by turning the speed control to“ON” and
then adjusting counterclockwise towards “OFF” as far as possible without turning the blower off. For a low blower speed,
turn the control knob clockwise as far as possible.

MAINTENANCE and GLASS CARE
CREOSOTE
FIREBRICK
FORMATION AND NEED FOR REMOVAL: When wood is
The firebox of your Quadra-Fire stove is lined with high quality
firebrick, which has exceptional insulating properties. There is no
need to use a grate; simply build a fire on the firebox floor of your
stove. Do not operate stove without firebrick.
burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors
which combine with expelled moisture to form creosote.
The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool
chimney flue of a newly-started or a slow-burning fire. As
a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining.
When ignited, this creosote creates an extremely hot fire
which may damage the chimney or even destroy the house.
The chimney connector and chimney should be inspected
once every two months during the heating season to
determine if a creosote or soot buildup has occurred. If
creosote or soot has accumulated, it should be removed
to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.
INSPECTION: Inspect the system at the stove connection
and at the chimney top. Cooler surfaces tend to build
creosote deposits quicker, so it is important to check the
chimney from the top as well as from the bottom.
REMOVAL: The creosote or soot should be removed with
a brush specifically designed for the type of chimney in
use. A chimney sweep can perform this service. It is also
recommended that before each heating season the entire
system be professionally inspected, cleaned and repaired
if necessary.
CHIMNEY CLEANING
Remove all ash from the firebox and extinguish all hot
embers before disposal. Allow the stove to cool completely.
Disconnect flue pipe or remove baffle from stove before
cleaning chimney. Otherwise residue can pile up on top of
the baffleand the stove will not work properly. Close the
door tightly and proceed with sweeping the chimney. Clean
out fallen ashes from the firebox.
DISPOSAL OF ASHES
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight
fitting lid. The closed container of ashes should be placed
on a noncombustible floor or on the ground, well away from
all combustible materials, pending final disposal. If the
ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally
dispersed, they should be retained in the closed container
until all cinders have thoroughly cooled.
OVERFIRING
Do not overfire. Using flammable liquids or too much
wood, burning trash in the stove, or allowing too much
air into the stove may result in overfiring. If the chimney
connector or stove glows red or even worse, white, the
stove is overfired. This condition may ignite creosote in
the chimney, which can be dangerous, possibly causing
a house fire. If you overfire, immediately close the air
controls and door, if open, to reduce the air supply to the
fire. Overfiring will void the stove warranty.
Page 22
GLASS CARE
NOTE: REMOVE ALL LABELS FROM GLASS BEFORE LIGHTING
THE FIRST FIRE IN YOUR STOVE.
Quadra-Fire stoves are equipped with ceramic super heat-resistant
glass, which can only be broken by impact or misuse. Do not slam
stove door or impact the glass. When closing door, make sure
that logs do not protrude against the glass. Clean glass with a
nonabrasive glass cleaner, such as Windex. Abrasive cleaners may
scratch and cause glass to crack. Inspect glass regularly. If you find
a crack or break, immediately put the fire out and return the door to
your dealer for replacement of glass before further use.
A portion of the combustion air entering the firebox is deflected
down over the inside of the door glass. This air flow “washes” the
glass, helping to keep smoke from adhering to its surface. When
operated at a low burn rate, less air will be flowing over the glass
and the smokey, relatively cool condition of a low fire will cause the
glass to become coated. Operating the stove with the Primary Air
Control all the way open for 15-20 minutes should remove the built
up coating. If the deposits on the glass are not very heavy, normal
glass cleaners work well. Heavier deposits may be removed by using
a damp cloth dipped in wood ashes or by using a commercially
available oven cleaner. After using an oven cleaner, it is advisable
to remove any residue with a glass cleaner or soap and water. Oven
cleaner left on during the next firing can permanently stain the glass
and damage the finish on plated metal surfaces.
CARE AND CLEANING OF PLATED SURFACES
Clean plated surfaces with vinegar or a glass cleaner before
lighting your first fire.
CAUTION:
Do not use polishes with abrasives as it will
scratch the surface.
WARNING: When the appliance is equipped with a plated door,
you must clean all the fingerprints and oils from the surface before
firing the appliance for the first time. Use a glass cleaner or
vinegar and towel to remove the oils. If not cleaned properly
before lighting your first fire, the oils can cause permanent
markings on the plating. After the plating is cured, the oils will
not affect the finish and little maintenance is required: just wipe
clean as needed.

Replace the door on the appliance.
BAFFLE REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
NOTE: The baffle in the 3100 is 2700° Fiber Board. Removing hardware exposed to combustion processes can be frustrating.
If your reason for removing the baffle is simply to clean the chimney, you have alternatives which will save time and effort. Call a
qualified chimney sweep or an authorized Quadra-Fire dealer for details.
1. Remove all ash from the firebox, and extinguish all hot embers before disposal into a metal container.
2. With a 3/16” allen wrench, remove the 2 front secondary combustion tube retainer bolts on the secondary air channel under the
end of the front tubes. See Figure 24A. NOTE: Soak the bolts with penetrating oil for at least 15 minutes before trying to remove
them.
3. To remove the secondary combustion tubes, slide the tube to one side until one end is out of its hole. Then, while lifting that end of
the fiber board, pull the tube up over the secondary air channel and out of the hole at the other end.
NOTE: When replacing the secondary tubes, be sure the tube with the larger holes is placed in the front or your stove
will not operate properly.
4. Slide fiber board and ceramic blanket forward to front of stove, tilt down and slide to the door. Tilt to one side and slide both through
door at the same time. Keep them tilted as you lift it out of the door. See Figure 24B.
5. To install the fiber board baffle and ceramic blanket, repeat steps 2 through 4 in reverse. Be sure that the fiber board baffle is pushed
back fully and the blanket is down flat. The front of the blanket should be flush with the front of the baffle.
