INSTALLATION
HOW TO INSTALL THE EPK-1(M)(P) SAFETY PILOT SYSTEM
This safety pilot system must be installed by a qualified professional installer.
Instructions must be followed carefully when installing to ensure
proper performance and full benefit from the gas log set and safety pilot system.
These instructions must be used as a supplement to the instructions supplied with the Peterson gas log set. Follow
the gas log set instructions and make adjustments as appropriate for the addition of a safety pilot system. Use gas
pipe sealing compound that is resistant to all gasses (or Teflon tape) and apply to all male pipe connections. Make
sure that all connections are tight. Use soapy water and a brush to inspect all connections for leaks prior to
use. NEVER TEST FOR LEAKS WITH AN OPEN FLAME.
INSTALLATION
The EPK-1(M)(P) is shipped pre-assembled for easy
installation onto the burner pan.
Note: Installation is easier when done outside of the
fireplace.
Burner pan
Attach the valve to the
air mixer by rotating the
burner pan.
FOLLOWING THESE INSTRUCTIONS WILL ENSURE
PROPER INSTALLATION.
PREPARATION
If the burner system the EPK-1(M)(P) is to be added to is
already installed, remove the logs, sand, and/or other media,
and set it aside to be correctly reinstalled later using the
instructions that came with the original burner system.

Cover the EPK-1(M)(P) safety valve with the heat shield
as shown in Fig. 7-2. The heat shield must remain in place
over the valve at all times during operation. Keep the area
above the heat shield clear of logs or any other object (Fig.
7-3). Follow the log placement instructions that came with
the burner exactly. Failure to follow these instructions
will cause overheating in EPK-1(M)(P) safety valve
components, resulting in system shutdown.

LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
We recommend that before you install the log set, you familiarize yourself with the control valve layout. This will
help you to be confident operating the log set when fully installed.
FOR YOUR SAFETY, READ BEFORE LIGHTING
WARNING
If you do not follow these instructions exactly, a fire or explosion may result, causing property
damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
The Real-Fyre® EPK-1(P) has a pilot that is lit using the ignitor switch. When lighting the pilot, follow these
instructions exactly.
BEFORE LIGHTING, smell all around the gas log set area for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor, as some
gas is heavier than air and will settle on the floor. IF YOU SMELL GAS, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON
THE FRONT COVER OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
TO LIGHT THE BURNER SYSTEM USING THE PINE CONE SWITCH
Use the switch on the top of the decorative pine cone (marked I = IGNITE; O = OFF, Fig. 8-1).
1. Press switch to I (Ignite); see Fig. 8-2. This transmits a rapid series of sparks at the pilot head and will
ignite the gas.
2. Sparks cease when the pilot flame is lit and stable. After a short time, the pilot will then light the main
burner.
CAUTION: IF THE BURNER DOES NOT IGNITE WITHIN 20 SECONDS, STOP, WAIT 5 MINUTES, THEN
REPEAT STEPS 1. AND 2. ABOVE.
If the pilot will not stay lit after several tries, turn the ignitor switch to O (OFF) and call the service technician or
gas supplier.

TO SHUT DOWN THE GAS LOG SET USING THE PINE CONE SWITCH
Simply press the O (OFF, Fig. 8-3) switch on top of the pine cone. The gas flow will cease, and
all flames (main burner and pilot) will go out (see important note below).
OPERATING THE BURNER USING THE REMOTE CONTROL
If your EPK-1 came equipped with a remote, or if one was added later, follow the instructions
included in the remote kit for lighting and shutting down the attached burner.
IMPORTANT: Both the pine cone switch and the remote control (if equipped) must be in the
off state to shut the burner off. If one control is commanded off while the other
is still on, the burner will remain on.
