WARNING
INSTALLER
• Read this owner’s manual carefully and completely before trying to assemble, operate,
or service this fireplace.
• 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.
Make certain you read and understand all warnings.
Keep this manual for reference. It is your guide to safe
and proper operation of this fireplace.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
IMPORTANT:
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY
It is normal for fireplaces fabricated of steel to
give off some expansion and/or contraction noises
during the start up or cool down cycle. Similar
noises are found with your furnace heat exchanger
or car engine.
IMPORTANT:
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY
It is not unusual for gas fireplaces to give off some
odor the first time it is burned. This is due to the
manufacturing process.
Please ensure that your room is well ventilated
during burn off — open all windows.
It is recommended that you burn your fireplace
for at least ten (10) hours the first time you use it.
Place the fan switch in the “OFF” position during
this time.
WARNING

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.
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 71/2 ft. of vertical rise. With 71/2 ft. or
more vertical rise, the horizontal run may runlevel. NEVER
run vent piping downward.
WARNING
for horizontal termination
Never run the vent pipe downward. This
may cause excessive temperatures
which could cause a fire.
You may use up to three 90° elbows in this vent configuration. Refer to Horizontal Termination Configurations on
pages 20 and 21.
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 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
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
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.

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 71/2 feet or higher (top vent units only), the clearances for the
horizontal run is 1" at the top.

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 Vent Graph, showing the relationship between vertical and horizontal side wall venting, will help to determine the various dimensions
allowable. Figure 20
NOTE: Horizontal sections of this vent system require a minimum of 3"
clearances to combustibles at the top of the flue unless the vertical run is
71/2 feet or higher (top vent units only), the clearances for the horizontal
run is 1" at the top, 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.
Vertical sections of this vent system require a minimum of 1" clearance to 20"
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.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent
pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace (or the top of the
Transition Elbow) to the face of the outer wall.
• The maximum number of 90° elbows per side wall
installation is three (3). Figure 21
WARNING
It is best to locate the fireplace in such a way that minimizes the number
of offsets and horizontal vent length.

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. See the Sidewall Venting Graph for extended horizontal run
if the vertical exceeds 24".
WARNING
1. Establish vent hole through the wall. Figure 16, page 18
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. See Figure 26.
3. Install vent system.
4. Ensure a watertight seal is made around the vent pipe coming through the wall.
5. Apply high temperature sealant caulking (supplied) around the 4" and 7" snorkel collars.
6. Slide the snorkel into the vent pipes and secure to the wall.
7. Level the soil so as to maintain a 4" clearance below snorkel. Figure 26
• Do not back fill around snorkel.
• A clearance of at least 4" must be
maintained between the snorkel and
the soil.
If the foundation is recessed, use recess brackets (not supplied) for securing lower portion of the
snorkel. Fasten brackets to wall first, then secure to snorkel with self drilling #8 x 1/2 sheet metal
screws. It will be necessary to extend vent pipes out as far as the protruding wall face. 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 30 to avoid cutting load bearing members.
For optimal flame appearance, a restrictor disk is necessary
on straight vertical runs of 20' of more.

Runs may not incorporate elbows.
The disk is part number 45D0551 and is included in
installation manual packet.
Drop the disk into a 4" inner collar before installing the
first section of flue or install at the last section before
installing the termination.
An additional disk may be installed on runs of 35' or
more. Rotate disks perpendicular to each other.
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 shows in Figure 13, page 20.
2. Set fireplace in desired location. Drop a line plumb down
from the ceiling to the position of the flue exit. Mark the
center point where the vent will penetrate the ceiling. Drill
a small locating hole a this point.
Drop a plumb line from the inside of the roof to the ceiling
locating hole in the ceiling. Mark the center point where
the vent will penetrate the roof. Drill a small locating hole
at this point.

1. Cut a 91/2" (241 mm) square hole in the ceiling using the
locating hole as a center point The opening should be
framed to 91/2" x 91/2" (241 mm 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 31. Otherwise, install firestop
below the framed hole. Figure 32
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.

caution
WARNING
Installing gas piping to fireplace / burner system location
A qualified installer or service person
must connect appliance to gas supply.
Follow all local codes.
For propane/LP units, never connect fireplace directly to the propane/LP supply. This
burner system requires an external regulator (not supplied). Install the external regulator
between the burner system and propane/LP supply.
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) • Equipment shutoff valve*
• Test gauge connection*
Sediment trap (recommended)
• Tee joint
• Pipe wrench
• 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
connection. Purchase the CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve from your dealer.
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 39. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.

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 40
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 40. 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.
