standard Z21.88-2009 and CSA-2.33-2009 for Vented Room
Heaters, and CSA 2.17-M91, Gas-Fired Appliances For Use
at High Altitudes.
The installation of the Oxford 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.)
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 Oxford 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 Oxford 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 Oxford 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.

Vent Termination Clearances
A vertical vent system must terminate no less than 8’
(2.44 m) and no more than 40’ (12 m) 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:
When planning the installation, consider the location of
the vent terminal and clearances. Some of the most common clearances to keep in mind are shown in Figure 10.
• 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.

Unacceptable Venting
Configuration

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” (305 mm)} through
which exhaust gas could reenter the building.
• All vegetation within 3’ (76 mm) that may interfere with
the draft.
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 heater is shipped from the factory as a Direct Vent
Heater. It may be converted to a Natural Vent heater by
installing the Model FSDHAG Draft Hood Adapter.
The heater is approved for installation as a Natural Vent.
Vermont Castings Group 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 Bvent 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” (150
mm) diameter pipe, around the Type B venting, for decorative purposes only. (Fig. 32)
NOTE: The restrictor plate supplied with the stove is
not used for Natural Vent applications.

4. Frequent pilot outage
problem
26
With the control knob in the pilot position, push the control
knob all the way and hold. Check for spark at electrode
and pilot. If no spark to pilot, and electrode wire is properly
connected, replace the battery in the ignitor module and
try again. Refer to Maintenance Section. If the problem
still exists, replace the ignitor module box.
A. Defective pilot generator (thermocouple), remote wall switch
Check pilot flame. Must impinge on thermocouple/thermopile. NOTE: This pilot burner assembly 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; 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.
A. Wall switch or wires defective
Check wall switch and wires for proper connections.
Jumper wire across 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 form 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 form 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 150mV. 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).

Oxford Direct Vent / Natural Vent Gas Heater
Maintenance
Your 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.
CAUTION
TURN THE PILOT OFF BEFORE PAINTING. ALLOW
THE HEATER TO COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE
PAINTING.
Care of Cast Iron
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.
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 touchup 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.
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. 57)
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.

Fig. 57 Remove the stove front.
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.
ST1125
4. Carefully inspect theremove
Logs for
damage. Contact your
front
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.
30
NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN
TO TOUCH GLASS.
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 Vermont Castings Group approved parts. Refer to Page 33 for Replacement Parts.
Refer to Figure 58 and previous instructions for removal
of the damaged glass frame.
30005123
Oxford 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. 58 Release the latches to release the glass frame.
Gasket Replacement
The 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. 58 & 59) Remove the old gasket. Use a razor
blade to separate the glass and gasket from the frame,
ST208
and to clean
the glass of any remaining cement or bits
of gasket.
Use aswivel
cold chisel
glass
latchif necessary.
2. Determine
the correct length of gasket by laying it out
12/99
around the edge of the glass. Allow an extra 1 - 2” (2550 mm). 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. 59)
ST179
Fig. 59 Wrap the gasket material around the outside edge of
the glass.
4. Apply a thin bead of high temperature silicone rubber
sealant along the inside corner of the glass frame, all

5. Replace the glass frame and front panel as previously
described.

To ensure that the stove is operating properly, check the
flames periodically to confirms they match Figure 60. 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 dealer or a qualified technician
for help.

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” (150 mm) 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
the on/off switch wires from
the valve. If the assembly
LG142
includes the optional fan,Stardance
disconnect the fan rheostat. If
the installation includes a wall thermostat, disconnect the
Install logs 2
thermostat leads from valve.
12/11/00 djt
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 16.
Also be sure the logs are placed in the firebox correctly,
as shown in Figures 34 & 35, Page 20.
