considered too heavy then obtain assistance.
When lifting always keep your back straight. Bend your legs and not your back.
Avoid twisting at the waist. It is better to reposition your feet.
Avoid upper body/top heavy bending. Do not lean forward or sideways whilst
handling the fire.
Always grip with the palm of the hand. Do not use the tips of fingers for support.
Always keep the fire as close to the body as possible. This will minimise the
cantilever action.
Use gloves to provide additional grip.
Always use assistance if required.
This product uses a fuel effect, a burner compartment rear wall and gaskets
containing Refractory Ceramic Fibres (RCF), which are man-made vitreous
silicate fibres. Excessive exposure to these materials may cause irritation to
eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Consequently, it is important to take care when
handling these articles to ensure that the release of dust is kept to a minimum.
To ensure that the release of fibres from these RCF articles is kept to a
minimum, during installation and servicing we recommend that you use a HEPA
filtered vacuum to remove any dust and soot accumulated in and around the
fire before and after working on the fire. When replacing these articles we
recommend that the replaced items are not broken up, but are sealed within a
heavy duty polythene bag, clearly labelled as RCF waste. RCF waste is classed
as a stable, non-reactive hazardous waste and may be disposed at a landfill
licensed to accept such waste. Protective clothing is not required when
handling these articles, but we recommend you follow the normal hygiene rules
of not smoking, eating or drinking in the work area and always wash your
hands before eating or drinking. This appliance does not contain any
component manufactured from asbestos or asbestos related products.

INSTALLER GUIDE
Where no specific instructions are given, reference should be made to the relevant
British Standard Code of Practice.
5.1.1 Considerations for timber framed buildings.
Installation to a timber-framed building should be in accordance with the relevant
sections of The Institute of Gas Engineers publication IGE/UP/7 “Gas installations in
timber frame buildings”.
Please note that advice should be sought before installing in a timber frame building
since the alterations required may nullify any NHBC cover relating to the property. If
in doubt, guidance should be requested from your local authority planning or building
department.
Under no circumstances is the fire to be recessed into timber frame
constructions. For timber framed installations see section 8.
5.2 Ventilation requirements.
No special ventilation bricks or vents are required into the room containing the
appliance.
5.3 Fireguard requirements.
A fireguard complying with BS 8423 should be fitted for the protection of young
children, the elderly, the infirm and pet animals.
5.4 Room considerations.
5.4.1 This appliance has exposed battery and electric motor components. It is not
recommended, therefore, that it be used in rooms which contains a bath, shower or
where steam is regularly present due to the possibility of corrosion or electrical
shorting.
5.4.2 Note that soft wall coverings (e.g. embossed vinyl etc.) are easily affected by
heat. They may therefore, scorch or become discoloured when close to a heating
appliance. Please bear this in mind when installing.
5.4.3 It is advisable that combustible fabrics such as curtains are not fitted above the
fire. If, however, this is unavoidable, the extreme bottom edge of the fabric must be at
least 780mm above the base of the fire.
5.5 Fireplace preparation.
5.5.1 The front face of the fireplace should be reasonably flat over the area covered
by the convection box top and side flange seals to ensure good sealing. These faces
should be made good if necessary. The fireplace floor should be reasonably flat to
ensure that a good seal with the convection box can be made.
5.5.2 A hole 152mm (6in) dia. is required through the wall for the flue unit. The height
of the hole centre is shown in figure 2 and on the wall-fixing template supplied with
the appliance.

INSTALLER GUIDE
5.5.3 Combustible cladding.
Decadent and Dream model.
If the fire is to be fitted against a wall with
combustible cladding, the cladding must be
removed from the area shown in figure 3.
Chic model.
If the fire is to be fitted against a wall with
combustible cladding, the cladding must be
removed from behind the fire and must have a
minimum clearance of 5mm from the fascia /
outside of the appliance.
5.6 The surround.
The appliance can be fitted to a purpose made
Figure 3. Area to be free of
proprietary class “O” 150°C surround. We
recommend that the surround manufacturer is combustible cladding.
contacted to confirm compatibility.
5.7 Hearth / plinth requirements.
For installations that are elevated and recessed.
The Decadent model is fitted with a fire front casting set. Although the ‘ash
pan’ casting locates to the fire front casting we recommend that a hearth / plinth is
fitted. The recommended minimum depth of the hearth / plinth from the fixing plane of
the fire is 153mm. This will minimise the visibility of the heat engine components.
The Dream model is fitted with a fire front casting set that is not secured to the
fire. It will therefore be necessary for a hearth / plinth to be fitted. The recommended
minimum depth of the hearth / plinth from the fixing plane of the fire is 100mm.
The Chic model does not require a hearth / plinth.
For installations that are not elevated.
This appliance does not require a non-combustible hearth. It can be installed on
any hard surface. This surface should be level and sufficiently flat to enable the
bottom of the fascia / fire front casting to be aligned horizontally. Any unevenness
(Uneven tiles, Cotswold stone etc.) should be rectified.
The appliance must not stand on carpet or other textured surfaces which may
interfere with the flow of convection air through the bottom of the appliance.
The floor surface that must be free of carpets, rugs or other fabric coverings should
be at least as wide as the appliance fascia and project forward at least 300mm from
the rear wall. In order to prevent carpet etc. being placed within this area, we strongly
recommend that the appliance is installed on a raised hearth or that the periphery of
this area is bordered by a fender.

INSTALLER GUIDE
5.8 Fireplace clearances.
5.8.1 The minimum height from the base of the fire to the underside of any shelf
made from wood or other combustible materials is as follows:•
For a shelf up to 150mm deep
Minimum height = 780mm.
•
For a shelf deeper than 150mm
780mm + 12.5mm for every 25mm depth over 150mm.
(See figure 4)
Figure 4. Combustible shelf clearances.
There is no restriction on the position or depth of non-combustible projections for all
normal installations. Installation into an unusually tightly restricted recess, however,
could cause the temperature of the appliance surfaces to become unacceptably high.
5.8.2 A minimum clearance of 51mm should be maintained at each side of the fire for
servicing access.
Any combustible side wall or other combustible projection must be at least 102mm
clear from direct exposure to the radiant surface of the appliance unless suitably
protected.

INSTALLER GUIDE
5.9 Installation options.
5.9.1 The appliance can be installed into the following:
a)
A minimum 4.5 inch rebate surround or 5 inch spacer kit Part No 0595121.
Where either of these are mounted to a combustible wall make sure that there is no
combustible material or combustible cladding in the area indicated on the wall fixing
template.
b)
A 2 inch rebate surround in conjunction with the 3 inch spacer kit Part No
0595131. Where the surround is mounted to a combustible wall make sure that there
is no combustible material or combustible cladding in the area indicated on the wallfixing template.
c)
Recessed into a builder’s opening or cavity of a non- combustible wall. The
minimum cavity size is shown in figure 2. The cavity can be elevated. A lintel may be
required above the recess opening. If in doubt seek expert building advice. Lintel
construction details are given in section 8 of this guide.
This appliance must not be recessed into a combustible wall.
5.9.2 A concealed gas supply connection can be made through the rear left panel.
Visible front connection can be from the left or right side.
5.10 Terminal guard and terminal clearances.
5.10.1 A terminal guard is supplied with this appliance.
In England and Wales the Building Regulations require a terminal guard to be fitted if
the terminal could come into contact with people near the building or be subject to
damage.
In the republic of Ireland the installation must also conform to the relevant parts of the
current edition of IS 813 “Domestic Gas Installations”
We recommend that the guard is fitted where contact with or damage to the terminal
is possible even if regulations do not demand it.

7. GAS SUPPLY CONNECTION
A nut & olive are provided for an 8mm pipe inlet connection to the inlet ‘T’ connector
at the bottom front of the appliance. This can be rotated to allow a connection from
any direction and includes a valve for isolating the gas supply.
The supply pipe must be rigid material. Flexible pipe must not be used.
Concealed supply pipe connecting from rear of the appliance.
Before the appliance is installed it will be necessary to extend the supply line so that
it will project through the sealed opening at the back of the fire case and run to the
inlet ‘T’ connector at the front.
Make sure that the supply line run up to the rear opening is kept away from the area
that will be taken by the appliance case when it is installed.
Note that when fitted the centre of the appliance inlet ‘T’ connector is 25mm above
the floor.
Cut a slit in the seal at the back of the appliance case. The seal must envelop the
pipe. Do not slit the seal unless the supply pipe is to pass through it.
Cap the open end of any supply pipe installed before the wall is drilled to
prevent any debris or dust etc. entering the pipe.

INSTALLER GUIDE
8. WALL PREPARATION
8.1 Select appliance position.
The flue must be installed so that it is at right angles to the back panel of the fire all
round the flue circumference.
For timber framed buildings make sure that the flue opening will be between studs.
When being recessed into a non-combustible wall or builders opening the fire itself
should be fitted vertically against a flat wall. Where this is difficult to achieve due to
building inaccuracies care should be taken to ensure that the back of the fire is not
stressed in any way due to distortion of the appliance when tightening the fixing
screws. Where necessary, non-combustible packing pieces should be used to provide
a satisfactory fixing surface.
8.2 Constructing a recessed opening.
Under no circumstances is the fire to be recessed into timber frame
constructions or any other combustible wall.
The recess in the wall for the appliance should be within the sizes shown in figure 2.
The bottom of the recess should be at the same level as the finished floor in front of
the appliance.
A lintel may be required above the recess for the convection box. If in doubt, seek
expert building advice before commencing to cut the recess.
8.2.1 Fitting a lintel.
Whenever a lintel is required to
support the recess in the inner
leaf of a brick/blockwork building,
follow the method outlined below
(See figure 12).
 The lintel should be either
steel (Catnic) or reinforced
precast concrete. It should be
750mm long x 75mm deep x
inner leaf thickness.
 The opening should be, as
near as possible, centrally below
a joint in the inner leaf block.
 Cut out the opening for the
lintel.
Figure 12. Lintel installation
 Where cutting through
masonry, drill pilot holes and then cut out the slot using a mechanical cutter. This will
minimise damage to the surrounding structure.
 Insert the lintel. Bed the lintel on mortar. Don’t dry bed. Slate pin to ensure the
lintel and structure above is secure and safe.

INSTALLER GUIDE
 Make the opening below the lintel by removing the masonry and clearing debris. If
the cavity has loose fill (e.g. granular) insulation material, pack the edges of the
opening with Rockwool as you proceed to hold back the insulating material.
8.2.2 Preparing a wall cavity.
 The wall cavity must not be bridged other than by the flue unit. The appliance case
must not project into the cavity between the inner and outer walls by more than
10mm.
 The cavity should be sealed where the opening has been cut. We recommend
filling fully across the cavity with Rockwool or equivalent to at least 100mm above and
each side of the recess opening (See figure 13).
 An alternative to rockwool above the opening is to seal across the top of the cavity
with Superlux board or equivalent. The board should slope downward to the back so
that any moisture will be channelled to the outside (See figure 13).
Figure 13.
8.3 Combustible wall materials.
 For brick or other non-combustible wall constructions, be sure to remove any
combustible wall cladding material from the area shown in figure 3.
 For Timber frame buildings, the back surface of the appliance case must be
separated from the timber frame by 25mm of non-combustible material. This can
consist of the usual 12.5mm thick plasterboard plus a 12.5mm thick sheet of noncombustible insulating material (e.g. fibre cement board). A timber frame flue
clearance kit is available. Part no. 0583141. This contains a pre-cut insulating sheet.
The insulating sheet can be used to seal the annular gap between the flue unit and
the inner leaf sleeve - see section 8.5. Do not permanently fix the insulating sheet to
the wall at this stage - see section 9.2.

8.4 Cutting the flue hole for brick, stone etc. building.
Cut the hole for the flue unit. Make sure that it is straight and level. Though a hammer
and chisel can be used, using a core drill is by far the quickest and simplest method
for normal brick work.
 Before cutting the hole in the wall make sure that the height to the top surface of
the finished floor or hearth is known. The height from this surface to the flue hole
centre is shown in figure 2. The terminal position must also comply with the location
requirements given in section 5.10.2.
 Place dust sheets on the floor and over any furnishings etc.
 Place the template against the wall. Make sure that the centre of the flue hole is as
shown in figure 2.
 Pierce the template at the centre of the screw fixing holes and the flue hole and
mark the positions on the wall. Remove the template.
8.4.1 Core drilling.
 Drill a pilot hole through the wall. Inspect the hole to ensure that it is in the brick
work and not in mortar. If it is in mortar, it is advisable to reposition the hole
approximately 25mm away - Make sure that the minimum side clearances and height
are complied with. Remember to reposition the screw fixing holes.
 Drill the flue hole with a 152mm (6 inch) core drill. Where practical, it is
recommended that the hole is drilled from inside the building to about half the wall
depth with the remainder drilled from outside. This ensures that the edges of the hole
are clean on both sides.
8.4.2 Hammer and chisel cutting.
 Mark a 152mm (6 inch) diameter circle for the flue hole. Chisel out the area
marked.
 It may be necessary to make good both the internal and external wall faces. To
achieve a neat finish and to make any future removal of the flue unit easier, it is
recommended that a cardboard cylinder is formed around the flue unit and inserted in
the hole while making good. Remove the cardboard cylinder after making good.
8.4.3 Leaving a hole for a building under construction.
 It will be convenient to use a non-corrosive metal tube 160mm diameter built into
the wall at the correct position for the flue unit.
8.5 Cutting the flue hole in timber frame buildings.
Drill the pilot hole and hole in outer wall as section 8.4.
 Since the flue will pass through combustible material in the inner leaf of the wall, a
non-combustible sleeve 203mm (8 inch) diameter will be required round the flue (See
figure 14).
 Cut a hole through the inner leaf to accommodate a non-combustible sleeve
203mm (8 inch) outside diameter. To minimise the effect of breaking through the
© Baxi Heating U.K. Limited 2009.
Page 23
INSTALLER GUIDE
vapour control layer (VCL), if possible, cut the hole approximately 10mm undersize so
that the sleeve will be forced through the layer. A recommended technique for cutting
the inner leaf is shown in figure 14.
 Fit the non-combustible sleeve to the inner leaf. The sleeve must extend to be at
least flush with the breather membrane / timber sheathing but must not protrude more
than 10mm into the cavity.
 The annular gap between the flue unit and the sleeve must be sealed to prevent
air heat and moisture passing along it. The 12.5mm insulating sheet (See section 8.3)
can be used for this. Do not permanently fix the insulating sheet to the wall at this
stage (See section 9.2).

 Drill the four fixing holes to a minimum depth of 42mm using a suitably sized
masonry drill for the wall plugs supplied.
 Insert four plastic wall plugs.
8.6.2 Using cable retention.
 Thread the two tension cables through the
appliance case side holes as shown in figure 15.
 Move the appliance towards the recess and mark
on the recess back wall the position for the two
eyebolt holes.
 Remove the appliance and drill at the marked
positions using a suitably sized masonry drill for the
fibre plugs supplied.
 Insert the two fibre wall plugs supplied.
 Fit the two eyebolts.

9.1 Cutting flue to size.
 For outset appliances with surround or spacer
Measure the total wall thickness from the outside surface of the wall to the inside face
of the surround or spacer. Deduct 35mm from this measurement to obtain the correct
length of flue unit required (See figures 16 & 17).
 For appliances inset in a recess
Measure the total finished wall thickness including plaster etc. Deduct 35mm from this
measurement to obtain the correct length of flue unit required (See figure 16).
 Mark off the flue length on the outer (air) tube measuring from the end of the
terminal.
 Insert the polystyrene ring between the inner and outer tubes to support them. Cut
both tubes squarely at the marked distance.
Important: Remove all polystyrene from the flue unit after cutting.

9.2 Fitting to wall.
 Fit the flue tubes firmly over the
spigots at the rear of the fire. Make sure
that the seam on the flue tube is not at
the bottom. Push on until the outer (air)
tube just covers the slots in the
appliance outer spigot (See figure 18).
 Secure the flue to the fire by drilling
through the outer flue tube and outer
spigot at a distance of between 6mm &
7mm from the cut end of the outer flue
tube and securing with the two self
tapping screws supplied (See figure
18).
Figure 18. Flue securing
 Seal the flue unit all round the
circumference of the outer spigot with the tape supplied.
 Timber frame buildings: Offer the fire complete with flue unit through the insulating
sheet (mentioned in section 8.3). Fit a drip collar round the flue positioned so that it
will be located in the centre of the wall cavity (See figure 17). The drip collar can be
made by wrapping a non-corrosive wire round the flue or moulding a bead of mastic
round the flue. A timber frame flue clearance kit is available. Part no. 0583141.
 Case fixing to wall: Offer the fire complete with flue unit through the wall, Insert
the four fixing screws and tighten.
 Cable retention: Fit the eyebolts onto the cables. Thread the cables through the
appliance case sides as shown in figure 15. Offer the fire complete with flue unit
through the wall. Pull the cables taut.
 Timber frame building with combustible outer leaf (e.g. shiplap boarding): A metal
or other non-combustible end plate must be fitted on the outside of the wall. The plate
must be concentric with the flue and at least 254mm (10in) square or diameter (See
figure 17).
 Seal the outer flue tube to the outside surface of the wall with fireclay or cement.
Make sure that the slots in the flue terminal are not closer than 8mm to the wall and
are not obstructed by cement.

13. WINDOW FITTING
Fitting the window.
 Locate the channel at the top of the window over the top of the firebox opening.
 Refit the three spring loaded screws and bushes. The wide part of the bushes
should be in contact with the widow frame. Tighten sufficiently to seal the firebox.
 Pull the bottom of the window forward and release to check that the window
opens slightly and returns in the event of a delayed ignition explosion.
14. FULL OPERATING CHECKS
14.1 Check for leaks.
 Turn on the gas supply and check all joints up to the appliance gas tap for gas
soundness using a soap solution or leak detection fluid.
14.2 Check control operation.
 Place the fascia in front of the fire and connect the battery and motor leads. The
motor lead connectors are two different sizes. They will only fit to the correct motor
terminals.
If the fire is turned off or the flames go out, wait at least 3 minutes before
attempting to relight. A safety device in the control stops the fire being turned
back on until it is safe.
(See figure 32).
 Depress the bottom half of the rocker
switch located at the right side of the
appliance case. This should cause the flame
control knob (The left-hand control knob) to
rotate clockwise until its bar is pointing
vertically downward. A clicking sound will be
heard while the flame control knob is
rotating.
 Push in the right control knob and, while Figure 32. Control
keeping it depressed, turn anticlockwise
through the ignition position marked
and up to the pilot position marked
.
The spark should light the pilot. The pilot flame can be seen by looking through the
gap near the front left side of the ceramic fuel effect.
 If the pilot does not ignite, keep the knob depressed for a few seconds to purge air
from the supply pipes. Then turn back to the off position marked
• and repeat the
ignition procedure.
 When the pilot has lit, keep the right hand control knob depressed for a few

seconds to allow the pilot flame to stabilise then release it. If the pilot does not remain
alight ensure that the air has been purged.
 Partially depress the right control knob and turn to the main burner position
marked
.
 The left-hand knob is for burner flame adjustment. In its fully clockwise position it
turns the main burner off. Depressing top half of the rocker switch should cause the
flame control knob to rotate anticlockwise direction. This should light the main burner
and gradually increase the flame height. The maximum flame height should be
achieved when the bar of the flame control knob is pointing vertically upward.
 After checking up to maximum flame height, depress the bottom half of the rocker
switch until the main burner is extinguished.
 The flame control rocker switch does not have to be operated every time the fire is
lit or turned off. The main burner setting will remain at its previously chosen position
enabling the customer to use the right hand control only to ignite the burner at that
setting and to turn the fire off.
 After checking turn the right hand knob to off. Depress the control knob partially at
the pilot position (
•
), turn clockwise to off ( ) and release the knob. If any
resistance is felt when turning, release the downward pressure on the knob before
continuing to turn.
14.3 Checking inlet pressure.
The burner aeration is non-adjustable. The appliance is preset to give the correct heat
input on Natural Gas at 20 mbar (8in w.g) inlet pressure and no further adjustment is
necessary. The burner pressure should be checked at the pressure test point located
on the inlet ‘T’ connector (See figure 33). The pressure check should be carried out
using a calibrated pressure gauge after removing the test point screw. The fire should
be alight and the left hand control knob at its fully anticlockwise setting (Maximum
flame height). The pressure setting should be within the limits shown in section 2 of
this manual (Appliance data and efficiency). After checking the pressure, turn off the
fire, remove the pressure gauge
and replace the pressure test
sealing screw. Relight the fire and
test all gas joints for soundness
using a suitable leak detection fluid.

17. SERVICING & PARTS REPLACEMENT
Always turn off the gas and allow the appliance to cool completely before
commencing any servicing (The inlet ‘T’ connector on this appliance
incorporates an isolating valve).
Always test for gas soundness after refitting the appliance.
This product uses a fuel effect, a burner compartment rear wall and gaskets
containing Refractory Ceramic Fibres (RCF), which are man-made vitreous
silicate fibres. Excessive exposure to these materials may cause irritation to
eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Consequently, it is important to take care when
handling these articles to ensure that the release of dust is kept to a minimum.
To ensure that the release of fibres from these RCF articles is kept to a
minimum, during installation and servicing we recommend that you use a HEPA
filtered vacuum to remove any dust and soot accumulated in and around the
fire before and after working on the fire. When replacing these articles we
recommend that the replaced items are not broken up, but are sealed within a
heavy duty polythene bag, clearly labelled as RCF waste. RCF waste is classed
as a stable, non-reactive hazardous waste and may be disposed at a landfill
licensed to accept such waste. Protective clothing is not required when
handling these articles, but we recommend you follow the normal hygiene rules
of not smoking, eating or drinking in the work area and always wash your
hands before eating or drinking.

Do have the fire installed by a competent person. In the United Kingdom, installation
must be in accordance with the latest edition of the Gas Safety (installation & use)
Regulations. In the Republic of Ireland, installation must be in accordance with all
national and local regulations in force.
Do have the fire installed in accordance with the installer guide.
Do provide a minimum clearance of 780mm from the base of the fire to any shelf
made of wood or other combustible material where the shelf is not more than 150mm
deep. For a shelf deeper than 150mm, add 12.5mm to the clearance for every 25mm
of additional shelf depth (See Figure 1).
Figure 1. Combustible shelf clearances.
Do provide a minimum clearance of 51mm each side of the fire for servicing access.
Do provide a suitable guard which complies with BS 8423 for the protection of young
children, the elderly, the infirm and pet animals. Although this fire conforms to all the
applicable standards, it is a heating appliance and certain parts of its surface will

become hot. The area above the outlet at the top of the Chic fascia gets hot. It is
important that this area is not touched when the fire is on or cooling down.
Do wait six minutes before attempting to relight if the fire is switched off or the flames
are extinguished for any reason. Your fire is fitted with a safety device which will
automatically shut off the gas supply to the fire if, for any reason, the flames go out.
Do get advice about the suitability of any wall covering near your fire. Soft wall
coverings (e.g. embossed vinyl, etc.) which have a raised pattern, are easily affected
by heat. They may, therefore, scorch or become discoloured when close to a heating
appliance. Please bear this in mind whenever you are considering redecorating (See
section 5.5.3 of the installer guide)
Do keep the flue terminal on the outside wall free from all obstructions and
blockages.
Don’t hang clothing, towels or any other fabrics over the fire.
Don’t use the fire without the glass window panel in position or with damaged glass.
Don’t add any loose ceramic fuel effect pieces on to the ceramic fuel effect supplied
with the fire. This could cause a safety hazard.
Don’t use the fire without the ceramic fuel effect and rear wall correctly in position or
if they are damaged.
Don’t place any carpet, rug or other soft surface material under or within 300mm
forward of the appliance over its full width side-to-side. (Although this fire does not
have to be on a non-combustible hearth, such soft materials could interfere with the
air flow into and through the bottom of the heater)
Don’t attempt to clean the fire until it has been switched off and allowed to cool
completely.

OPERATING YOUR FIRE
The pilot may be left alight. It is advisable, however, that the pilot is turned off if the
premises are to be left unoccupied for a lengthy period.
For your safety the fire is fitted with a flame supervision device which will shut off the
gas supply if for any reason the pilot goes out. This device incorporates a fixed probe
which senses the heat from the pilot flame. If the probe is cool the device will prevent
any gas flow unless the pilot lighting knob is held in. This device also stops the fire

being turned back on until it is safe after it has been turned off.
If, for any reason, the fire goes out or if the fire is turned off, always wait at least six
minutes before attempting to relight. If the device starts to shut off the gas
frequently, get expert advice.
The controls are shown in figure 3.
To light the pilot.
 Push in the right control knob (the
pilot lighting knob) and, while keeping it
depressed, turn anticlockwise through
the ignition position marked

pilot flame can be seen by looking
through the gap near the front left side of the ceramic
fuel effect (See figure 4).
 When the pilot has lit, keep the right hand control
knob depressed for a few seconds to prevent the
flame supervision device from shutting off the gas
supply while its probe warms up, as explained above,
then release it. If the pilot does not remain alight turn
the knob back to the off position marked
•. Wait a
few seconds and repeat the lighting sequence.
Figure 4. Pilot flame
To light the main burner.
 Partially depress the right control knob and turn to (Fascia may differ from that

the main burner position marked
.
 The main burner flames are controlled by using the rocker switch at the right side
of the fire case. Operating the rocker switch automatically causes the knob at the left
side of the pilot control knob to rotate. Pressing in the top half of the switch turns the
main burner on. Keeping the top half pressed gradually increases the flame height
and heat output. Pressing the bottom half reduces the flame height and heat output
and finally turns the main burner off. In the unlikely event of failure of the rocker
switch, the left side knob can be turned manually.
To turn off the main burner only.
 Press in and hold the bottom half of the rocker switch until the main burner is
extinguished. Alternatively, the main burner can be extinguished by turning the right
hand control knob to the pilot position marked

CLEANING YOUR FIRE
Turn the fire off and allow it to cool completely before attempting any cleaning. Note
that the fire will retain heat for some time after it has been turned off.
Metal parts.
Clean the metal parts with a slightly damp cloth and then dry. Do not use abrasive
cleaners, they could scratch the surface.
SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE
Regular maintenance.
In order to achieve and maintain high levels of personal safety and performance
efficiency it is essential that the flue terminal outside the building is kept clear of any
form of obstruction.
We recommend that all gas appliances and their flues are checked annually by a
competent person (In the UK a GAS SAFE REGISTER engineer, Outside of the UK a
CORGI or GAS SAFE REGISTER engineer).
In the United Kingdom it is the law that a landlord must have any gas appliance, flue
and pipework which is situated in a tenant’s premises checked for safety at least
every twelve months.
Battery replacement.
This appliance uses four 1.5V AA
batteries.
 To change the batteries remove
the bottom front casting / fire front.
Remove the fire front as described
previously in this guide.
 The battery case is at the right
side. Lift the plastic battery holder
out of the metal case and detach
the batteries (See figure 5).
 Discard the old batteries and
replace with new ones.
