monoxide poisoning are similar to the flu with headaches,
dizziness and/or nausea. If you have these signs, the fireplace may not have been installed properly. Get fresh air
at once! Have the fireplace inspected and serviced by a
qualified service person. Some people are more affected
by carbon monoxide than others. These include pregnant
women, people with heart or lung disease or anemia,
those under the influence of alcohol, and those at high
altitudes.
Propane/LP gas and natural gas are both odorless. An
odor-making agent is added to each of these gases. The
odor helps you detect a gas leak. However, the odor added
to these gases can fade. Gas may be present even though
no odor exists.

installation planning
There are two basic types of direct-vent installation:
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
It is important to select the proper length of vent pipe for
the type of termination you choose. It is also important
to note the wall thickness.
WARNING
Vent installation
Never run the vent pipe down. This may cause
excessive temperatures which could cause a
fire.
for horizontal termination
Select the amount of vertical rise desired. All horizontal run of venting must have 1/4" rise for every 12"
of run towards the termination.
You may use up to three 90° elbows in this vent configuration. Refer to Horizontal Termination Configurations on Pages 22 and 23.
For vertical termination
Measure the distance from the fireplace floor to the ceiling. Add the ceiling thickness, the vertical rise in
an attic or second story, and allow for sufficient vent height above the roof line.
NOTE: You may use two 45° elbows in place of a 90° elbow. You must follow rise to run ratios when
using 45° elbows. The appliance is approved for use with three 90° elbows maximum or a combination
of 90° and 45° elbows up to a maximum of 270°.
For two-story applications, firestops are required at each floor level. If an offset is needed in the attic,
additional pipe and elbows will be required.
You may use a chase with a vent termination with exposed pipe on the exterior of the house. Refer to
Installing Vent System in a Chase below. If pipe is enclosed in chase, it is not exposed.
It is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and
the flue gas exhaust. Certain limitations apply to vent configurations and must be strictly followed.
Installing a vent system in an outside chase
Always maintain minimum clearances around vent systems. The minimum clearances
to combustibles for horizontal vent pipe are 3" at the top and 1" at the sides and bottom
of the vent system until the pipe penetrates the nearest vertical wall. A 1" minimum
clearance all around the pipe must be maintained. Do not pack the open air spaces with
insulation or other materials. This could cause high temperatures and may present a
fire hazard.

NOTICE
WARNING
Treatment of firestops and construction of
the chase may vary from building type to
building type. These instructions are not
substitutes for the requirements of local
building codes. You must follow all local
building codes.
WARNING
A chase is a vertical boxlike structure built to enclose venting that runs along the outside of a building.
A chase is required for such venting.
When installing in a chase, you should
insulate the chase as you would the outside
walls of your home. This is especially
important in cold climates. Insulation
should be considered a combustible
material. Maintain proper clearances to all
combustible materials.

Since it is very important that the venting system maintain its bal- 38
ance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust, 36
certain limitations as to vent configurations apply and must be strictly 34
adhered to.

Below Grade Installations
When it is not possible to meet the required vent terminal clearances of 12" above grade level, a
snorkel kit is recommended. It allows installation depth down to 7" (178 mm) below grade level.
The 7" (178 mm) is measured from the center of the horizontal vent pipe as it penetrates through
the wall.
Ensure that sidewall venting clearances are observed. If venting system is installed below
ground, we recommend a window well with adequate and proper drainage to be installed
around the termination area.
If installing a snorkel, a minimum 24" vertical rise is necessary. The maximum horizontal run with
the 24” vertical pipe is 36". This measurement is taken from the collar of the fireplace (or transition
elbow) to the face of the exterior wall. Refer to the Sidewall Venting Graph for extended horizontal
run if the vertical exceeds 24".
WARNING
1. Establish vent hole through the wall. Refer to Page 20, Figure 16
2. Remove soil to a depth of approximately 16" below base of snorkel. Install drain pipe. Install
window well (not supplied). Refill hole with 12" of coarse gravel leaving a clearance of approximately 4" below snorkel. Figure 27

1. Determine the route your vertical venting will take. If ceiling joist,
roof rafters or other framing will obstruct the venting system, consider an offset. Refer to Figure 31 to avoid cutting load bearing
members.
NOTE: Pay special attention to these installation instructions for
required clearances (air space) to combustibles when passing through
ceilings, walls, roofs, enclosures, attic rafters, etc. Do not pack air
spaces with insulation. Also note maximum vertical rise of the venting
system and any maximum horizontal offset limitations. Offsets must
fall within the parameters shown on Page 22, Figure 21.

flat ceiling installation
1. Cut a 9Z\x" (241 mm) square hole in the ceiling using the locating
hole as a center point The opening should be framed to 9Z\x" x 9Z\x"
(241 x 241 mm) inside dimensions as shown in Figure 32 using
framing lumber the same size as the ceiling joist. If the area above
the ceiling is an insulated ceiling or a room, nail firestop from the
top side. This prevents loose insulation from falling into the required
clearance space. Figure 32. Otherwise, install firestop below the
framed hole.
2. Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to
reach from the burner system flue up through the firestop. Be
sure pipe and elbow connections are fully twist-locked. Page
20, Figure 17
3. Cut a hole in the roof using the locating hole as a center point.
(Cover any exposed open vent pipes before cutting hole in
roof). The 9Z\x" x 9Z\x" (241 x 241 mm) hole must be measured
on the horizontal. Actual length may be larger depending on
the pitch of the roof. There must be a 1" minimum clearance
from the vent pipe to combustible materials. (Insulation should
be considered a combustible material) Frame the opening as
shown on Page 20, Figure 16.

4. Connect a section of pipe and extend up through the hole.
NOTE: If an offset is needed to avoid obstructions, you must support the vent pipe every three
(3) feet. Use wall straps for this purpose. Refer to Page 25, Figure 29. Whenever possible, use
45° elbows instead of 90° elbows. The 45° elbow offers less restriction to the flow of the flue
gases and intake air.
5. Place the flashing over the pipe section(s) extending through the roof. Secure the base of the flashing to the roof and framing with roofing nails. Be sure roofing material overlaps the top edge of the
flashing. There must be a 1" clearance from the vent pipe to combustible materials.
6. Continue to add pipe sections until the height of the vent cap meets the minimum building code
requirements.
NOTE: You must increase vent height for steep roof pitches. Nearby trees, adjoining roof lines,
steep pitched roofs, and other similar factors may cause poor draft or down-drafting in high
winds. Increasing the vent height may solve this problem.
NOTE: If the vent pipe passes through any occupied areas above the first floor, including
storage spaces and closets, you must enclose pipe. You may frame and sheetrock the enclosure
with standard construction material. Make sure to meet the minimum allowable clearances to
combustibles. Do not fill any of the required clearance spaces with insulation. 42D0200

A manual shutoff valve must be installed
upstream of the appliance. Union tee and
plugged 1/8” NPT pressure tapping point
should be installed upstream of the appliance.
Figure 35
NOTE : The gas line connection may be made using 1/2" rigid tubing or an approved flex connector. Since some
municipalities have additional local codes it is always best to consult your local authorities and the current edition
of the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI.Z223.1, NFPA54. In Canada CSA-B149 (1 or 2) Installation Code.
A listed manual shutoff valve must be installed upstream of the appliance. Union tee and plugged 1/8" NPT pressure tapping point should be installed upstream of the appliance. Figure 35
Check your building codes for any special requirements
for locating equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male threads. This will
prevent excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could result in clogged burner system valves.
CAUTION
IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shutoff valve) in an accessible location. The main gas valve is
for turning on or shutting off the gas to the fireplace.
Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to liquid
petroleum (LP) gas.
We recommend that you install a sediment trap/drip leg
in supply line as shown in Figure 35. Locate sediment trap/drip leg where it is within reach for cleaning. Install
in piping system between fuel supply and burner system. Locate sediment trap/drip leg where trapped matter
is not likely to freeze. A sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them from going into the
burner system gas controls. If sediment trap/drip leg is not installed or is installed wrong, burner system may
not run properly.

6000DV Gas Fireplace
Make sure the gas valve knob is in the “OFF” position. Wait at least five (5) minutes before start­­
ing maintenance. Fireplace must be cold before starting maintenance.
CAUTION
Venting system
A qualified agency should examine the venting system annually.
Cleaning glass
Allow glass to cool before cleaning.
Do not clean glass when it is hot.
Damage could occur.
Clean the tempered glass periodically. Condensation will sometimes form on the glass during a cold startup. This is normal for all
gas fireplaces. This condensation often attracts dust and lint to the
surface of the glass. The initial paint curing of the appliance can also leave a slight film on the
glass.
Your should clean the glass after the first two weeks of use. After that, you should clean the
glass no more than two or three times a season. Use a mild glass cleaner to clean the door. Do
not use abrasive cleaners. They will damage the glass surface.
