SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP-GAS
Propane (LP-Gas) is a flammable gas which can cause fires
and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and
colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions which can protect both you and your family from an
accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point
by point with the members of your household. Someday when
there may not be a minute to lose, everyone's safety will depend
on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following
information, you feel you still need more information, please
contact your gas supplier.
LP-GAS WARNING ODOR
If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.
That's your signal to go into immediate action!
•
•
•
•
Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your phone.
Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.
Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do
that IMMEDIATELY.
Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.
LP-Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas such as
basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak, keep
out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until firefighters
declare them to be safe.
•
•
Use your neighbor's phone and call a trained LP-Gas service
person and the fire department. Even though you may not
continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do not
re-enter the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for escaped
gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly
trained LP-Gas service people should repair the leak, then
check and relight the gas appliance for you.
NO ODOR DETECTED - ODOR FADE
Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the
odor of the chemical put into the gas. You must find out if you
can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease your
ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect your
sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors
in the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the gas odor
or their minds are on something else. Thinking about smelling a
gas odor can make it easier to smell.
The odorant in LP-gas is colorless, and it can fade under some
circumstances. For example, if there is an underground leak, the
movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants
in LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading can occur if
there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into walls,
masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will take
some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.
LP-Gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could
vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be
more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest gas
odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately
go into action as instructed earlier.
SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER
•
Learn to recognize the odor of LP-gas. Your local LP-Gas
Dealer can give you a "Scratch and Sniff" pamphlet. Use it to
find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that
your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LP-Gas
Dealer.
•
If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service,
or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gas system. If
you are qualified, consciously think about the odor of LP-Gas
prior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service
or making adjustments.
•
Sometimes a basement or a closed-up house has a musty smell
that can cover up the LP-Gas odor. Do not try to light pilot
lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area where
the conditions are such that you may not detect the odor if
there has been a leak of LP-Gas.
•
Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of
new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should
be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders
are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks, or
reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed to set too
Page 4
long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which have been
out of service for a time may develop internal rust which will
cause odor fade. If such conditions are suspected to exist, a
periodic sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you have any
question about the gas odor, call your LP-gas dealer. A
periodic sniff test of the LP-gas is a good safety measure
under any condition.
•
If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gas odorant and you
think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the same
immediate action recommended above for the occasion when
you do detect the odorized LP-Gas.
•
If you experience a complete "gas out," (the container is under
no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately. If the
container valve is left on, the container may draw in some air
through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this occurs,
some new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is left
open, then treat the container as a new tank. Always be sure
your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off at the
container before it goes completely empty or having it refilled
before it is completely empty.

Note: Never use plastic pipe. Check to confirm whether your local
codes allow copper tubing or galvanized.
Note: Since some municipalities have additional local codes, it is
always best to consult your local authority and installation code.
The use of the following gas connectors is recommended:
— ANS Z21.24 Appliance Connectors of Corrugated Metal Tubing
and Fittings
— ANS Z21.45 Assembled Flexible Appliance Connectors of
Other Than All-Metal Construction
The above connectors may be used if acceptable by the authority
having jurisdiction. The state of Massachusetts requires that a flexible
appliance connector cannot exceed three feet in length.
Installing a New Main Gas Cock
Each appliance should have its own manual gas cock.
A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of the
unit. Where none exists, or where its size or location is not adequate, contact your local authorized installer for installation or
relocation.
Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant
to the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be
checked for leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap
solution watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if
unexposed, a pressure test should be made.
Never use an exposed flame to check for leaks. Appliance must
be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe
capped or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with
appliance connected; control valve will sustain damage!
NOTE: The gas control is equipped with a captured screw type
pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to provide a 1/8"
test point up stream of the control.
A gas valve and ground joint union should be installed in the gas
line upstream of the gas control to aid in servicing. It is required
by the National Fuel Gas Code that a drip line be installed near
the gas inlet. This should consist of a vertical length of pipe tee
connected into the gas line that is capped on the bottom in which
condensation and foreign particles may collect.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings.
Always provide a union so that gas line can be easily disconnected
for burner servicing.
The appliance and it's individual shut off valve must be disconnected
from supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system
at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system
by closing its individual manual shut off valve during any pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or
less than 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
Attention! If one of the procedures results in pressures in excess
of 1/2 psig (14" w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the fireplace gas valve, it will
result in a hazardous condition.
Figure 1
Page 8
Checking Manifold Pressure
Both Propane and Natural gas valves have a built-in pressure
regulator in the gas valve. Natural gas models will have a manifold
pressure of approximately 3.5" w.c. (.871kPa) for maximum input
or 1.7" w.c. (.423kPa) for minimum input at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 5.0" w.c.
(1.245kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
10.5" (2.615kPa) w.c. Propane gas models will have a manifold
pressure approximately 10.0"w.c. (2.49kPa) for maximum input
or 5.9" w.c. (1.469kPa) for minimum input at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 11.0" w.c.
(2.739kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
13.0" w.c. (3.237kPa).
A 1/8" (3mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge
connection, is located on the outlet side of the gas control.
15628-9-1007

1/4" male tab on the reset switch. Attachment of black wire onto
the reset switch is done in conjunction with the preceding steps for
Wire Channel Installation. Attach black wire on the back of the
reset switch to the TH/TP terminal on gas valve.
The reset switch can be activated if the main burner has a delayed
ignition. The right, relief door is connected by a metal wire to a
cotter pin that is inserted into the reset switch. When a delayed
ignition occurs the right, relief door pivots upward, the metal wire
pulls the cotter pin out of the reset switch and the main burner is
shut OFF.
Whenever the delayed ignition reset switch is activated you
must contact a qualified service person to determine the cause
for the delayed ignition reset switch to be activated.
Replacement of cotter pin into delayed ignition reset switch assembly
by a qualified service person.
1. Lower valve cover.
2. The reset switch is located behind the left side of the valve
cover.

VENTING FIREPLACE
Venting Graph (Dimensions in Feet) (Figure 16)
1. Determine the height of the center of the termination. Using this
dimension on the Venting Graph, locate the point it intersects
with the slanted graph line, or the right edge of the graph.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical line to the
bottom of the graph.
3. Adjust the indicated maximum dimension for additional elbows
if necessary.
4. Position the unit so that maximum horizontal run is not
exceeded.
Venting Must Be Within Shaded Area
Venting Requirements (Figure 17)
Minimum vertical rise from appliance outlet = 24 inches
(610mm).
Attention: All vent runs must have a minimum VERTICAL
rise of two feet. If the vent run is directly behind the appliance,
you must attach 36" Simpson Dura-Vent SD-981 or the Selkirk
4DT-ST36 on the exterior of the building.
Maximum vertical rise from appliance outlet = 25 feet (7.62m),
the restrictor plate may be used above 10 feet.
Maximum horizontal run from appliance outlet = 12 feet
(3.66m).
Maximum vertical rise and horizontal run is a combined total of
25 feet (7.62m).
Maximum elbows = (2) 90°, for the second elbow subtract 5 feet
from a horizontal run.
To Use the Vent Graph
EXAMPLE A:
If the vertical rise from the appliance outlet is 21 feet, the horizontal
run to the outer wall flange of the vent termination must not exceed
4 feet with (1) 90° elbow.
EXAMPLE B:
If the vertical rise from the appliance outlet is 14 feet, the horizontal
run to the outer wall flange of the vent tremination must not exceed
11 feet with (1) 90° elbow.
SPECIAL NOTE: For each 45 degree elbow installed in the
horizontal run, the length of the horizontal run MUST be reduced
by 18 inches (45cm). This does not apply if the 45 degree elbows
are installed on the vertical rise of the vent system.
Example: According to the chart the maximum horizontal run is
12 feet and if two 45 degree elbows are required in the horizontal
run it must be reduced to 9 feet.
The maximum number of 45 degree elbows permitted per side
wall installation is two. These elbows can be installed in either the
vertical rise or horizontal run.
ATTENTION: All vent runs must have a minimum
VERTICAL rise of two feet. If the vent is to run
horizontally from appliance without two feet of
vertical rise, you must attach Simpson DuraVent 36” snorkel part number SD981 or the Selkirk
4DT-ST36 on the exterior of the building

VENTING FIREPLACE (continued)
Sidewall Venting
The maximum vertical and horizontal distances for one (1) 90° elbow
are 25 feet and 12 feet, respectively. Vertical dimensions are based
on top of fireplace to centerline of pipe. Horizontal dimensions are
based on centerline of pipe to termination.
CAUTION: Total vertical run MUST BE completed before
starting horizontal run. Horizontal chimney run must slope
upward (away from fireplace) 1/4" per foot and vent
termination must be level.
Under no circumstances should combustible materials (including
siding) be closer than 2" from the top of the 6 5/8" pipe or closer
than 1" on the side and bottom.
Cutting the Hole (Figure 18)
After the appliance has been positioned in its permanent location,
the hole through the exterior wall of the house can be cut. This
hole needs to be 10" high x 10" wide square with its center line
determined by the amount of vertical arise and horizontal run of the
termination. When locating the hole it must be noted that the bottom
of the cap must be 12" above the ground level, and top of the cap
must be no less than 18" below a combustible projection, and no
closer than 9" to any wall running parallel to vent termination.
Figure 18
RESTRICTOR PLATE INSTALLATION
The restrictor plate is to be used only in a completely vertical vent
installation. The restrictor plate can be used when the vertical vent
rise is between 10 feet and 25 feet.
In a vertical vent rise the rear (yellow) flame on the main burner can
be reduced due to the drawing action from the flue exhaust pipe and
the air inlet pipe. A decrease in the height or the appearance of the
yellow flame may occur when the vertical vent rise is between 10
feet and 25 feet. To enhance the yellow flame on the main burner,
the restrictor plate can be installed beneath the vent elbow on the
appliance air drop.
Please use the following steps to install the restrictor plate.
1. If attached, remove the vent pipe from the vent elbow on the
appliance.
2. Remove the vent elbow from the appliance air drop by removing
(4) 1/2" hex-head screws from vent elbow.
3. Align clearance holes on restrictor plate with screw holes on
appliance air drop. The gasket on the restrictor plate should
be positioned upward when the restrictor plate is placed onto
appliance air drop.
4. Align clearance holes on vent elbow with clearance holes on
restrictor plate and screw holes on appliance air drop.
5. Attach vent elbow and restrictor plate to appliance air drop.
Fasten (4) 1/2" hex-head screws from Step 2 through clearance
holes on vent elbow and restrictor plate and into screw holes
on appliance air drop.
Attention: Apply furnace cement to the top, exterior edge on
the cast iron flue outlet.
6. Installation of restrictor plate is completed.

Vertical Sidewall Installations
Important! Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible
materials is one inch (1") (25mm) on, bottom and sides and (2")
(51mm) on top.
Important! When vent termination exits through foundation less
than 20" below siding outcrop, the vent pipe must flush up with
the siding. SD985 termination cap must also be used.
Imformation on Various Venting Routes and Components
Important: It is always best to locate the appliance in such a way
that minimizes the number of offsets and horizontal vent length.
Page 18
Since it is very important that the venting system maintain its
balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust,
certain limitations as to vent configurations apply and must be
strictly adhered to.
The graph showing the relationship between vertical and horizontal
side wall venting will help to determine the various vent lengths
allowable.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent pipe from
the vent elbow of the appliance to the face of the outer wall.

VENT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION
Installing Vent Components (Figure 22 and Figure 23)
Begin the vent system installation by installing the first Simpson
Duravent component, a straight pipe on the top of the appliance,or
rotate the vent elbow to the horizontal positon then add horizontal
and vertical pipe lengths and then a horizontal or vertical termination
kit. Elbows can be added where neccessary. See Pages 15 through
17 for venting requirements.
Simpson Duravent vent system components lock into place by
sliding the concentric pipe section with four (4) equally spaced
interior beads onto the appliance collar or previously installed
component end with four (4) equally spaced indented sections.
When the internal beads of each starting 6-5/8 inch outer pipe line
up, rotate pipe section clockwise 90° (approximately 3 inches).
The vent pipe is now locked together.
Continue adding components per the pre-planned vent system
configuration. Be certain that each succeeding vent component
is securely fitted and locked into the preceding component in the
vent system.

FRAMING AND FINISHING
Installing Support Brackets (Figure 24)
A horizontal pipe support MUST BE used for each 3 feet of horizontal
run. The pipe supports should be placed around 6-5/8 inch diameter
pipe and nailed in place to framing members. There MUST BE a 2
inch clearance to combustibles above 6-5/8 inch diameter pipe and
elbows and 1 inch clearance on both sides and bottom of 6-5/8 inch
to combustibles on all horizontal pipe sections and elbows.
Vertical runs of this vent systems must be supported every 4 feet
above the appliance flue outlet by wall brackets attached to the 65/8 inch vent pipe and secured with nails or screws to structural
framing members.
Figure 25
Vertical runs of this system which pass through ceilings require the
use of ONE (1) ceiling firestop at the hole in each ceiling through
which the vent passes.
Position a plumb bob directly over the center of the vertical vent
component and mark the ceiling to establish the center point of the
vent. Drill a hole or drive a nail through this center point and check
the floor above for any obstructions such as wiring or plumbing
runs. Reposition the appliance and vent system, if necessary, to
accommodate ceiling joists and/or obstructions.
Figure 24
Installing Firestops (Figures 25, 26, 27 and 28)
Firestops are required for safety whenever the vent system passes
through an interior wall, an exterior wall, or a ceiling. These firestops
act as a firebreak heat shield and as a means to insure that minimum
clearances are maintained to the vent system.
Cut a 10 inch x 10 inch hole through the ceiling, using the center
point previously marked. Frame the hole with framing lumber the
same size as the ceiling joists. (See Figure 26 ) If the area above
the ceiling is NOT an attic, position and secure the ceiling firestop
(SD-963) on the ceiling side of the previously cut and framed hole.
(See Figure 27) If the area above the ceiling IS an attic, position
and secure the firestop on top of the previously framed hole. (See
Figure 28)
NOTE: Remove insulation from the framed area in the attic before
installing the firestop and/or vent stop and/or vent pipes.
Horizontal runs in the vent system which pass through either interior
or exterior walls, require the use of wall firestops on both sides of
the wall through which the vent passes.
Position the firestops on both sides of the 10 inch x 10 inch hole,
previously cut. Secure with nails or screws. Continue the vent run
through the firestops. (See Figure 25)
Figure 26
15628-9-1007
Page 21
Figure 27
Figure 28
HORIZONTAL TERMINATION
Attach and secure the termination to the last section of horizontal
venting by rotating and interlocking the ends as previously
described.
NOTE: Termination cap should pass through the wall firestop
from the exterior of the building. Adjust the termination
cap to its final exterior position on the building.
WARNING: Termination cap must be positioned so that
the arrow is pointing up.
Using the termination cap in the center of the square hole, attach
the termination cap with the four wood screws provided. Before
attachment of the termination, run a bead of silicone sealant rated
above 250°F on its outside edge too, so as to make a seal to that
exterior wall.
NOTE: Wood screws can and should be replaced with appropriate
fasteners for use on stucco, brick, concrete or other types
of siding.
CAUTION: If exterior walls are finished with siding (vinyl,
aluminum, etc.), it is necessary to install the vinyl siding shield
(SD-950).
Vinyl siding shield (SD-950) will be installed between the vent
termination and the exterior wall. (See Figure 29) This horizontal vent
termination bolts onto the flat portion of the vinyl siding standoff, so
an air space will exist between the wall and the termination cap.
Page 22
Figure 29
15628-9-1007
VERTICAL TERMINATION
Vertical Terminations (Figures 30, 31 and 32)
Locate and mark the center point of the venting pipe. Using a nail
on the underside of the roof and drive this nail through this center
point. Make the outline of the roof hole around this center point.
NOTE: Size of the roof hole dimensions depend on the pitch of
the roof. There must be a 1 inch clearance (25mm) to the
vertical pipe sections. This clearance is to all combustible
material.
Cover the opening of the vent pipe and cut and frame the roof hole.
Use framing lumber the same size as the roof rafters and install the
frame securely. Flashing anchored to frame must withstand high
winds. The storm collar is placed over this joint to make a watertight seal. Non-hardening sealant should be used to completely seal
this flashing installation.
Determining Minimum Vent Height Above the Roof.
WARNING: Major U.S. building codes specify minimum
chimney and/or vent height above the roof top. These minimum
heights are necessary in the interest of safety. These specifications
are summarized in Figure 30.
When terminating the vent cap near an exterior wall or overhang,
maintainn minimum clearances as shown in Figure 31.
General Maintenance
Conduct an inspection of the venting system semi-annually.
Recommended areas to inspect are as follows:
1. Check areas of the venting system which are exposed to the
elements for corrosion. These will appear as rust spots or
streaks and, in extreme cases, holes. These components should
immediately be replaced.
2. Remove the cap and shine a flashlight down the vent. Remove
any bird nests or other foreign material.
3. Check for evidence of excessive condensate, such as water
droplets forming in the inner liner and subsequently dripping
out at joints. Continue condensate can cause corrosion of caps,
pipe and fittings. It may be caused by having excessive lateral
runs, too many elbows and exterior portions of the system being
exposed to cold weather.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe sections or fittings have been
disturbed and, consequently, loosened. Also, check mechanical
supports, such as wall straps or plumbers' tape for rigidity.
Venting terminal shall not be recessed into a wall or siding.
A removable panel or other means must be provided in the enclosure
for visual inspection of the flue connection.
Installing the Vent System in a Chase
A chase is a vertical box like structure built to enclose the gas appliance
and/or it's vent system. Vertical vent runs on the outside of a building
may be, but are not required to be installed inside a chase.
When installing a direct vent gas appliance in a chase, it is always
good building practice to insulate the chase as you would the outside
wall of your home.
Figure 30
Note that for steep roof pitches, the vent height must be increased.
In high wind conditions, nearby trees, adjoining roof lines, steep
pitched roofs, and other similar factors can result in poor draft,
or down-drafting. In these cases, increasing the vent height may
solve this problem.

CAUTION: Treatment of firestop spacers and construction of
the chase may vary with the type of building. These instructions
are not substitutes for the requirements of local building codes.
Therefore, your local building codes must be checked to determine
the requirements for these steps.
Page 23
NOTE: When installing this vent system in a chase, it is always
good building practice to insulate the chase as you would the
outside walls of your home. This is especially important for cold
climate installations. Upon completion of building your chase
framing, install the vent system by following the instructions in
this manual. Remember to build the chase large enough so that
minimum clearance of combustible materials (including insulation)
to the vent system are maintained.
Vertical Through the Roof Applications
Your Gas Fireplace has been approved for
a) Vertical installations up to 25 feet in height.
b) Two sets of 45 degree elbow offsets within these vertical
installations. From 0 to a maximum of 8 feet a vent pipe can
be used between elbows.
c) Wall straps must be used to support offset pipe every 4 feet.
Installing Support Brackets
A horizontal pipe support MUST BE used for each 3 feet of horizontal
run. The pipe supports should be placed around 6-5/8 inch diameter
pipe and nailed in place to framing members. There MUST BE a 2
inch clearance to combustibles above 6-5/8 inch diameter pipe and
elbows and 1 inch clearance on both sides and bottom of 6-5/8 inch
to combustibles on all horizontal pipe sections and elbows.
Vertical runs of this vent systems must be supported every 4 feet
above the appliance flue outlet by wall brackets attached to the
6- 5/8 inch vent pipe and secured with nails or screws to structural
framing members.
This applications will require that you first determine the roof pitch
and use the appropriate venting components.
Reassembly and Resealing Vent-Air Intake System
Attach vent elbow to appliance air drop with (4) 1/2" hex-head screws
in either the vertical or horizontal position, replace horizontal and
vertical pipe lengths, elbows and horizontal or vertical termination
kit.
All vent system components lock into place by sliding the concentric
pipe section with four (4) equally spaced interior beads onto the
appliance collar or previously installed component end with four
(4) equally spaced indented sections. When the internal beads
of each starting 6-5/8 inch outer pipe line up, rotate pipe section
clockwise 90° (approximately 3 inches). The vent pipe is now
locked together.
Continue replacing components per the vent system configuration.
Be certain that each succeeding vent component is securely fitted
and locked into the preceding component in the vent system.

OPERATING GUIDELINES
Before operating this heater, please review the safety warnings
pages at the beginning of this manual and those precautions and
warnings listed below.
1. Know what type of ignition system this model has (standing
pilot) and follow the applicable SAFETY and LIGHTING
instructions.
2. Check to ensure there are no gas leaks. If you are unsure, turn gas
off to the heater and call a service person or your gas utility.
CAUTION: Clothing or other flammable material should not
be placed on or near the appliance.
WARNING: Children and adults should be alerted to the
hazard of high surface temperature and should stay away
to avoid burns or clothing ignition. Young children should
be carefully supervised when they are in the same room as
the appliance.
3. Tampering is DANGEROUS and voids all warranties. Any
component that is found to be faulty, must be replaced with an
approved component.
CAUTION: During the initial purging and subsequent lightings,
never allow the gas valve control knob to remain depressed in
the "pilot" position without pushing the piezo ignitor button
at least once every second.
2. During the heating season, leave the control valve knob in the
"ON" position. This will allow the pilot flame to remain lit. Turn
the burner flame on or off with the appliance ON/OFF rocker
switch, wall switch, remote control kits or 750 millivolt wall
thermostat.
NOTE: The gas control valve allows you to increase or decrease the
height of the main burner flame. The control valve has a pressure
regulator with a knob as shown in Figure 35. Rotate the knob
clockwise to "HI" to increase the flame height and counterclockwise
to "LO" to decrease the flame height.
3. When the heating season is over, turn the on/off switch to "OFF"
and the control valve to "OFF". The system, including the pilot
light, will be shut down.
Initial Lighting (Figure 34)
Upon completing the gas line or turning the gas valve "ON" after it
has been in the "OFF" position, a small amount of air will be in the
lines. When first lighting the appliance, it will take a few minutes
for the lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is
complete, the appliance will light and operate satisfactorily.
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such purging
if the gas valve is not turned to "OFF."
Standing Pilot Operation
1. Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for
standing pilot controls found in this manual and on labels found
attached to the appliance.
15628-9-1007

Maximum and Minimum Input
The gas valve on the appliance allows the input to adjust between
a maximum input of 30,000 Btuh to a minimum input of 21,000
Btuh. Consumer be advised, the maximum input provides the
greatest amount of yellow flame and ember flow on the log set.
The minimum input substantially decreases the yellow flame and
ember glow on the log set.

PILOT FLAME CHARACTERISTICS
Figure 36 shows a correct pilot flame pattern. The correct flame will be blue and will extend beyond the thermocouple and thermopile.
The flame will surround the thermocouple and thermopile just below the tip. A slight yellow flame may occur where the pilot flame and
main burner flame meet. Figure 37 shows an incorrect pilot flame pattern. The incorrect pilot flame is not touching the thermocouple
or thermopile. This will cause the thermocouple or thermopile to cool. When the thermocouple cools, the heater will shut down.
If pilot flame pattern is incorrect, as shown in Figure 37
• See Troubleshooting, page 32.

Cleaning the Log Set and Firebox
During the annual inspection and maintenance appointment, the
service person should clean dust, lint, and any light accumulation
from the logs and the firebox area. An extra-soft brush should be
used on the logs as they are extremely fragile; a vacuum cleaner
may be used on the firebox. If at any time the logs cannot be removed or installed without forcing, the cause must be found. The
logs must never be forced.
CAUTION: The ceramic logs are durable when handled and
installed properly. However, they are delicate and may be damaged
easily if not handled with care. Handling damage to the ceramic
logs is not covered by warranty.
DO NOT HANDLE LOGS WHILE THEY ARE HOT. ALLOW
PLENTY OF TIME FOR THE APPLIANCE TO COOL
COMPLETELY BEFORE HANDLING.
PLEASE NOTE
It is normal for appliances fabricated of steel to give off
some expansion and/or contraction noised during the start
up or cool down cycle. Similar noises are found with your
furnace heat exchanger or car engine.

MAINTENANCE
A qualified service person recommended by your Empire dealer
should conduct an annual inspection and maintenance of the appliance, its venting, and the installation to keep it running safely and
efficiently. The following procedures should be performed only
by a qualified service person. The gas supply should be turned off
whenever a maintenance procedure is performed.
If the glass front, relief doors, or front access door are removed for
servicing, they must be replaced prior to operating the appliance.
Glass Cleaning
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-abrasive household cleaner and warm water
(we recommend gas fireplace glass cleaner). We do not recommend
using packaged spray type household glass cleaner. After that the
glass should be cleaned two or three times during each heating
season depending on the circumstances present.

Spark ignitor will not light pilot after repeated depressing
of piezo ignitor button.
a. Defective ignitor (no spark at electrode) - Check for spark
at electrode and pilot; if no spark and electrode wire is
properly connected, replace ignitor.
b. No gas or low gas pressure.
- Check remote shut off valves from fireplace. Usually there
is a valve near the main. There can be more than one (1)
valve between the fireplace and main.
- Low pressure can be caused by a variety of situations
such as a bent line, too narrow diameter of pipe, or low
line pressure. Consult with plumber of gas supplier.
c. No LP in tank.
- Check LP (propane) tank. Refill tank.
Pilot will not stay lit after carefully following lighting
instructions.
a. Defective thermocouple.
- Check that pilot 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 (hand tight plus 1/4 turn) faulty
themopile if reading is below specified minimum.
- Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one
millivolt meter 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 the thermocouple.
b. Defective valve.
- If thermocouple is producing more than 15 millivolts,
replace faulty valve
Pilot burning, no gas to burner, valve knob "ON", on/off
switch "ON."
a. "On/Off" switch, wall switch, or wires defective.
- Check "on/off" switch and wires for proper connections.
Place jumper wires across terminal at switch - if burner
comes on, replace defective switch. If OK, place jumper
wires across switch wires at gas valve-if burner comes on,
wires are faulty or connections are bad.
b. Thermopile may not be generating sufficient millivoltage.
- If the pilot flame is not close enough physically to the
thermopile, adjust the pilot flame.
- Be sure the wire connections from the thermopile at the
gas valve terminals are tight and the thermopile is fully
inserted into the pilot bracket.
- Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take the
reading at TH-TP & TP terminals of the gas valve. The
meter should read 325 millivolts minimum, while holding
the valve knob depressed th the pilot position, with the pilot
lit, and the ON/OFF switch in the OFF position. Replace
the faulty thermopile if the reading is below the specified
minimum.

-With the pilot in the ON position, disconnect the thermopile
leads from the valve. Take a reading at the thermopile leads.
The reading should be 325 millivolts minimum. Replace
the thermopile if the reading is below the minimum.
c. Defective valve.
- Turn valve knob to "ON." Place ON/OFF switch to
"ON." Check with millivolt meter at thermopile terminals.
Millivolt meter should read greater than 100 M.V. If the
reading is okay and the burner does not come, replace the
gas valve.
d. Plugged main burner orifice.
- Check main burner orifice for blockage, clean main burner
orifice.
Frequent pilot outage problem.
a. Pilot flame may be too high or too low, or blowing (high),
causing pilot safety to drop out.
- Clean and adjust flame for maximum flame impingement on
the thermocouple. Follow lighting instructions carefully.
The pilot and main burner extinguish while in operation.
a. No LP (Propane) in tank.
- Check LP (Propane) tank. Refill fuel tank.
b. Inner vent pipe leaking exhaust gases back into system.
- Check for leaks.
c. Glass too loose, gasket leaks in corners after usage.
- Be certain glass assembly is installed correctly and tighten
corner.
d. Horizontal vent improperly pitched.
- The horizontal vent cap should slope down only enough
to prevent any water from entering the unit. The maximum
downwards slope is 1/4 inch.
e. Bad thermopile or thermocouple.
- Replace if necessary.
f. Improper vent cap installation.
- Check for proper installation and freedom from debris or
blockage.
Glass soots.
a. Flame impingement on logs.
- Adjust the log set so that the flame does not excessively
impinge on it.
Flame lifts off main burner.
a. Insufficient oxygen being supplied.

The blower wheel will collect lint and could require cleaning once
a year. If the air output decreases or the noise level increases, it
indicates a dirty wheel.
Blower Motor
The blower motor does not have oiling holes. Do not attempt to
oil blower motor.
Wiring
The appliance, when installed, must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 or Canadian Electrical
Code, CSA C22.1, if an external electrical source is utilized. This
appliance is equipped with a three-prong [grounding] plug for
your protection against shock hazard and should be plugged
directly into a properly grounded three-prong receptacle. Do
not cut or remove the grounding prong from this plug. For an
ungrounded receptacle, an adapter, which has two prongs and a
wire for grounding, can be purchased, plugged into the ungrounded
receptacle and its wire connected to the receptacle mounting screws.
With this wire completing the ground, the appliance cord plug can
be plugged into the adapter and be electrically grounded.

and dangerous operation. Verify proper operation after
servicing.
WARNING:
Unplugging of blower accessory will not stop the heater
from cycling. To shut heater off: Turn temperature dial
or thermostat to lowest setting. Turn knob on gas control
to "OFF", depressing slightly. Do not force.
