Any change to this fireplace or its controls can be dangerous.
Improper installation or use of this fireplace can cause serious injury or death from
fire, burns, explosions, electrical shock and carbon monoxide poisoning.
This fireplace is a vented product. This fireplace must be
properly installed by a qualified service person. The glass
door must be properly seated and sealed. If this unit is not
properly installed by a qualified service person with glass
door properly seated and sealed, combustion leakage can
occur.
CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING: Early signs of carbon
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.

VentING installation
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
installation planning
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 below 7Z\x" of vertical rise from floor of fireplace. With 7Z\x feet or more of vertical rise
from the floor of the fireplace, the horizontal run may be level. NEVER run vent piping down.
You may use up to three 90° elbows in this vent configuration. Refer to Vertical/Horizontal Termination Configurations on Page 16.
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. See Installing A
Vent System in an Outside 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
NOTICE
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.
NOTICE
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.
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.
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 (1" required). A 1" minimum clearance
all around the pipe must be maintained at outside wall and on vertical runs. Do not pack the
open air spaces with insulation or other materials. This could cause high temperatures and may
present a fire hazard.
*Unless the vertical run is 7Z\x feet or higher from floor of fireplace, the clearance for the horizontal
run is 1" on all sides.

NOTE: Horizontal sections of this vent system require
a minimum of 3" clearances to combustibles at the top
of the flue and 1" clearance at the sides and bottom
until the flue penetrates the outside wall. A minimum
1" clearance all around the flue is acceptable at this
point of penetration. Unless the vertical run is 7Z\x feet
or higher from floor of fireplace, the clearance for the
horizontal run is 1" on all sides.
Vertical sections of this vent system require a minimum
of 1" clearance to combustibles on all sides of the
pipe.
When vent exits through foundations less than 20" below
outcrop, the termination must be flush up with outcropped
wall above.

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 18, Figure 22.
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

installation items needed
Before installing fireplace and burner system, make sure you have the items listed below.
• External regulator (supplied by installer) • Piping (check local codes)
• Sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• Test gauge connection*
• Sediment trap (recommended) • Pipe wrench
• Tee joint
• Equipment shutoff valve*
• Approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if allowed by local codes — not provided)
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge

CAUTION
For propane/LP connections only, the installer must supply an external regulator. The external regulator will reduce
incoming gas pressure. You must reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11 and 13 inches of water. If you do
not reduce incoming gas pressure, burner system regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with
the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 28. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
Use only new black iron or steel pipe. Internally
tinned copper or copper tubing can be used
per National Fuel Code, section 2.6.3, providing
gas meets hydrogen sulfide limits, and where
permitted by local codes. Gas piping system
must be sized to provide minimum inlet
pressure (listed on data plate) at the maximum
flow rate (BTU/hr). Undue pressure loss will
occur if the pipe is too small.
When using copper of flex connectors use only fittings
approved for gas connections. The gas control inlet is
3/8" NPT.

WARNING
KHLDV Series Gas Fireplace
Only persons licensed to work with gas
piping may make the necessary gas
connections to this appliance.
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 29
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.
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.
CAUTION
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
29
Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to
liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
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.
We recommend that you install a sediment trap/drip leg in supply line as shown in Figure 29. 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 collects moisture and contaminants and 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.

cleaning and maintenance
Vent SysteM
The fireplace and venting system should be inspected before initial use and at least annually by a
qualified field service person. Inspect the external vent cap on a regular basis to make sure that no
debris is interfering with the airflow. Inspect entire venting system to ensure proper function.
Glass Door
Thoroughly clean the inside of the glass door after using the fireplace for ten hours. Periodically clean
the glass door as necessary.
When cleaning the glass, remember:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not remove the glass when hot. Allow glass to cool before removal.
NEVER use abrasive materials.
Keep children and pets a safe distance away.
Never operate the fireplace without the glass door properly secured.
Never operate the fireplace if the glass is broken.
Replace any glass that is chipped, cracked, or broken. Replacement glass door assemblies MUST
be supplied by the fireplace manufacturer ­– No substitute materials may be used.
• Handle glass door with care to avoid striking or scratching it on hard objects.
To clean glass door, follow “Glass Removal” procedure outlined in the Final Installation section. Film
deposit on the inside of the glass should be cleaned off using a nontoxic, non-corrosive, non-abrasive,
mild-cleaning solution. Simply apply an adequate amount to the glass and wipe off with a damp cloth.
After all maintenance has been completed, re-install glass door.
Logs
Leave logs installed in the fireplace for cleaning. Vacuum surface of the logs with a brush attachment.
If logs must be removed for cleaning, handle carefully by holding gently at each end. Gloves are recommended to prevent skin irritation from ceramic fibers. If skin becomes irritated, wash gently with
soap and water. Vacuum surface of logs with brush attachment or brush logs with a soft bristle brush
(i.e. clean, dry paintbrush). To place logs back in the fireplace, see “Log Placement” found in the Final
Installation section.
NOTE: Do not use fluids to clean ceramic fiber logs.
Rock wool
Replace or add rock wool as required following installation instructions in the Final Installation section
of this manual.

A. Open door and check to make sure wire is connected to
ignitor.
B.Check for spark at electrode and pilot. If no spark and
electrode wire is properly connected, replace pilot
assembly.
C. Check remote/manual shut off valve from fireplace. Low
pressure can be caused by bent lines, restricted lines,
low pressure line pressure. Consult with plumber or gas
supplier.
D. Check Propane/LPG tank. Refill tank.
A. Check that thermocouple flame impinges on thermocouple. Clean and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame
impingement. Ensure that the thermocouple connection
at the gas valve is fully inserted and tight.
Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one
millivolt lead wire on the tip of the thermocouple and the
other meter lead wire on the thermocouple copper lead.
Start the pilot and hold the valve knob in. If the millivolt
reading is less than 15 mV, replace pilot assembly.
B.If thermocouple is producing more than 15 mV, replace
faulty valve.
A. Check switch and wire for proper connection. Place
jumper wires across terminals of switch. If burner comes
on, replace defective switch.If the switch is OK, repeat
the same procedure on remote control If burner comes
on, replace remote control.
Place jumper wire across wire at gas valves (terminals
marked TH and TP/TH). If burner comes on, wires are
faulty or connections are bad. Replace wire.
B.If pilot flame is not close enough to the thermopile, adjust
pilot flame.
C.Check thermopile wire connections to make sure all
are tight and that the thermopile is fully inserted into
pilot assembly. Check thermopile with a millivolt meter.
Connect leads to TP and TP/TH terminals on the control
valve. If meter reading is below 325 mV, replace pilot
assembly.
D.Turn valve knob to “On” and switch to “ON.” Take a reading at the thermopile leads (TP & TP/TH) on the valve.
If the meter reads greater than 175 mV and the burner
does not light, replace defective valve.
