Please retain these instructions for future reference.
WARNING
Read these instructions carefully before
installing or trying to operate this vent-free
gas heater.
This product must be installed by a licensed
plumber of gas fitter when installed within
the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
• Any change to this heater or its controls can be dangerous.
• Improper installation or use of the heater can cause serious injury or death from
fire, burns, explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning.
• Do not allow fans to blow directly into the stove. Avoid any drafts that alter burner
flame patterns.
• Do not use a blower insert, heat exchanger insert or other accessory, not approved
for use with this heater where applicable.
1. The installation, combustion and ventilation air
must conform with local codes or, in the absence of
local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1.
2. Installation and repair should be done by a qualified

Logs must be installed only in a masonry or a UL 127
solid-fuel fireplace with minimum venting requirements,
see installation section.
3. To prevent malfunction, gas log set and flue should
be cleaned at least annually by a professional service
person. More frequent cleaning may be required due
to excessive lint from carpeting, etc. It is imperative
that control compartments, burners and circulating air
passageways be kept clean.
4. A damper clamp must be installed to provide the
minimum permanent vent opening to vent flue
products, Refer to installation instructions.
5. Never burn solid fuels in a fireplace where a gas log
set is installed.
6. This appliance must not be used with glass doors
in the closed position. A fireplace screen must be
in place when the log set is burning. Provisions for
adequate combustion air must be provided. Adequate
combustion air usually results in all flames curling into
the fireplace away from screen and up the flue.
8. Keep room area clear and free from combustible
materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and
liquids.
9. Children and adults should be alerted to the hazard
of high surface temperature and should stay away to
avoid burns or clothing ignition.

placement of glowing embers
(rock wool)
The Wildfire flame appearance can vary due to differences
in draft and fireplace configurations and ember placement.
After installing rear (#1) and front logs (#2 and #3), cover
the entire top surface of the vermiculite in the burner pan
with the rock wool supplied with unit. Tear the rock wool
into pieces approximately 1/2" in size (roughly the size of a
nickel) and cover the burner evenly. Do no use more rock
wool than the amount supplied with the unit. To enhance
the appearance of the Wildfire flame, it is recommended
to form a mound of rock wool in the center of the burner,
2" to 3" high, visible through the two front logs.
Placement of Decorative Volcanic
Rock
Sprinkle volcanic rock in front of front glowing embers
and to both sides.
DO NOT SPRINKLE ON BURNERS, EMBER BED,
PILOT OR LOGS.
IMPORTANT: Do not handle logs with your bare
hands! Always wear gloves to prevent skin irritation
from ceramic fibers. After handling logs, wash your
hands gently with soap and water to remove any
traces of fibers.

fireplace draft test
IMPORTANT: Fireplace Draft Test During Initial Installation
It is critical to verify that your chimney is drafting properly because the fireplace and gas logs
function as a system.
WARNING
Although Vermont Castings Group goes to great lengths to design vented gas log sets
that minimize sooting, all vented log sets will soot over time. Sooting normally appears
as areas of black powder-like substance on the logs. It is important to periodically clean
and inspect the logs per the cleaning and servicing.
Fireplace systems that do not draft properly can increase the amount of
soot produced by normal operation of the log set and, in extreme cases,
can cause soot to be deposited within the room. This effect can be a sign of
a blocked chimney, a faulty vent system or the result of negative pressure
within the home. The dealer should be able to diagnose if a problem exists
and be able to provide a solution to improve the venting of the fireplace.
fireplace draft test method
To determine if your fireplace is drafting properly, turn the log set on. After log set has been
burning for about 10 minutes, place a match or smoke stick along the top and sides of the fireplace opening. If the flame or smoke is not pulled into the fireplace, then the fireplace is not
venting properly. At this point, the damper stop should be adjusted so that the damper opening is increased. If the problem remains after the open area of the damper is increased, then
the fireplace system should be professionally inspected to determine if your firebox/chimney is
venting properly.

remote control receiver replacement
WARNING
The remote control receiver and batteries are very sensitive to heat. Exposure to high temperatures
can cause the receiver to malfunction and shorten the life of the batteries. If your fireplace does
NOT have a restrictive barrier (Page 6), such as glass doors, it is recommended that the remote
receiver be affixed to the right hand side of the heat shield or placed in the front, right corner of the
fireplace. If your fireplace has a restrictive barrier, it is recommended that the remote receiver be
placed outside of the fireplace.
Turn off gas logs and allow to cool before
cleaning. Disconnect electrical power if
applicable before cleaning or servicing.
Remove Soot with a Soft Bristle Brush

log performance.
The log set should be cleaned at least once a year forclean
maximum
Turn gas supply off. Allow unit to cool. Remove logs, handling carefully by holding gently at each
end. Gloves are recommended when handling the log to prevent skin irritation from ceramic fibers.
If skin becomes irritated, wash gently with soap and water. Refer to manual for correct log placement. Brush each log gently with a soft bristle brush. This will remove soot that has built up on the
log set. DO NOT USE LIQUID SOOT REMOVER ON LOGS!
To refurbish the grate, remove grate and take it outside. Use a wire brush or sandpaper to remove
any discoloration to the grate. Paint grate with high temperature black paint (barbecue paint). Reinstall grate after paint dries.
If embers (rock wool) have turned a rust color and become brittle, remove old embers (rock wool)
from log set. Replace with new rock wool. Rock wool can be purchased from you local dealer. See
log placement section for placement of embers.
