Approvals and
Codes
Appliance Certification
High Altitude Installations
The Quadra-Fire models discussed in this Installers Guide
have been tested to certification standards and listed by
the applicable laboratories.
U.L. Listed gas appliances are tested and approved without
requiring changes for elevations from 0 to 2,000 feet in the
U. S. A. and in Canada.
When installing this appliance at an elevation above 2,000
feet, it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by
changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Input
rate should be reduced by 4% for each 1000 feet above a
2000 foot elevation in the U.S.A. or 10% for elevations
between 2000 and 4500 feet in Canada. If the heating value
of the gas has been reduced, these rules do not apply. To
identify the proper orifice size, check with the local gas
utility.

Getting Started
Introducing the Quadra-Fire Gas Fireplaces
The Quadra-Fire Warranty will be voided by, and Hearth &
Home Technologies disclaims any responsibility for, the
following actions:
• Installation of any damaged fireplace or vent system
component.
• Modification of the fireplace or direct vent system.
• Installation other than as instructed by Hearth & Home
Technologies.
• Improper positioning of the gas logs or the glass door.
• Installation and/or use of any component part not manufactured and approved by Hearth & Home Technologies,
not withstanding any independent testing laboratory or
other party approval of such component part or accessory.
ANY SUCH ACTION MAY POSSIBLY CAUSE A FIRE
HAZARD.
Quadra-Fire direct vent gas fireplaces are designed to operate with all combustion air siphoned from outside of the
building and all exhaust gases expelled to the outside.
The information contained in this Installers Guide, unless
noted otherwise, applies to all models and gas control
systems. Gas fireplace diagrams, including the dimensions,
are shown in this section.
Pre-install Preparation
This gas fireplace and its components are tested and safe
when installed in accordance with this Installers Guide.
Report to your dealer any parts damaged in shipment,
particularly the condition of the glass. Do not install any
unit with damaged, incomplete, or substitute parts.
The vent system components are shipped in separate packages. The gas logs are packaged separately and must be
field installed.
When planning a fireplace installation, it’s necessary to
determine:
• Where the unit is to be installed.
• The vent system configuration to be used.
• Gas supply piping.
• Electrical wiring.
• Framing and finishing details.
• Whether optional accessories—devices such as a fan,
wall switch, or remote control—are desired.
If the fireplace is to be installed on carpeting or tile, or on
any combustible material other than wood flooring, the
fireplace should be installed on a metal or wood panel that
extends the full width and depth of the fireplace.
Read all of the instructions before starting the installation. Follow these instructions carefully during the
installation to ensure maximum safety and benefit.
Failure to follow these instructions will void the owner’s warranty and may present a fire hazard.

Step 3. Installing the Vent System
Identifying Vent Components
A. Vent System Approvals
The vent systems installed on this gas fireplace may include one, two, or three 90° elbow assemblies. The relationships of vertical rise to horizontal run in vent configurations using 90° elbows MUST BE strictly adhered to. The
rise to run relationships are shown in the venting drawings
and tables. Refer to the diagrams on the next several pages.
These models are approved to use D-series direct vent pipe
components and terminations (see Figures 5 and 6). Approved vent system components are labeled for identification. This pipe is tested and listed as an approved component of the fireplace. The pipe is tested to be run inside an
enclosed wall. There is no requirement for inspection openings at each joint within the wall. There is no required pitch
for horizontal vent runs. NO OTHER VENTING SYSTEMS
OR COMPONENTS MAY BE USED.
NOTE: Two 45° elbows may be used in place of one
90° elbow. Rise to run ratios in the vent system must
be followed if 45° elbows are used.
This model has vent starting collars on both the top and the
back of the unit. Depending upon the installation, decide
which ONE set of starting collars will be used to attach the
vent system. The starting collar sealing cap must remain
on the starting collars NOT used.
Detailed installation instructions are included with each vent
termination kit and should be used in conjunction with this
Installers Guide.
The flame and ember appearance may vary based on the
type of fuel burned and the venting configuration used.

Step 10. Installing Trim, Logs,
and Ember Material
Placing the Ember Material
Ember material is shipped with this gas fireplace. The bag
labeled Golden Ember (GE-93) is flame colorant material.
The bag labeled Glowing Ember (050-721) is standard glowing ember material.
Installing the Trim
Combustible materials may be brought up to the specified
clearances on the side and top front edges of the fireplace,
but MUST NEVER overlap onto the front face. The joints
between the finished wall and the fireplace top and sides
can only be sealed with a 300° F. (149° C) minimum sealant.
To place the ember material:
•
Remove the wing nuts and glass clips or tension springs
around the glass door.
•
Remove the glass door from the unit.
•
Place dime size pieces of ember material about 1/2 inch
apart near port holes in burner top. Do NOT press embers into burner ports. Cover the top of the burner with a
single layer of ember material. For best performance do
NOT place embers on the ports at the rear of the burner.
Do not obstruct or modify the air inlet/outlet grilles. When
overlapping on both sides, leave enough space so that the
bottom grille can be lowered and the trim door removed.
•
Save the remaining ember materials for use during fireplace servicing. The bag of embers provided is sufficient
for 3 to 5 applications.
Positioning the Logs
•
Replace the wing nuts, glass clips, and screws.
If the gas logs have been factory installed they should not
need to be positioned. If the logs have been packaged
separately, refer to the instructions that accompany the
logs. Save the log instructions with this manual.
•
Replace the glass door and a front trim door on the unit.
•
Hand tighten the wing nuts.
If sooting occurs, the logs might need to be repositioned
slightly to avoid excessive flame impingement.
CAUTION: IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT
TRIM DOORS WITH OPTIONAL MESH SCREENS BE
INSTALLED ON PROPANE MODELS.
!
WARNING: WHEN FINISHING THE FIREPLACE,
NEVER OBSTRUCT OR MODIFY THE AIR INLET/
OUTLET GRILLES IN ANY MANNER.
Install optional marble and brass trim surround kits as
desired. Marble, brass, brick, tile, or other non-combustible
materials can be used to cover up the gap between the
sheet rock or wood and the fireplace.

During this break-in period it is recommended that some
windows in the house be opened for air circulation. This will
help avoid setting off smoke detectors, and help eliminate
any odors associated with the fireplace’s initial burning.
This gas appliance produces heat which does have an associated odor or smell. If you feel this odor is excessive it
may require the initial 3-4 hour continuous burn on high followed by a second burn up to 12 hours to fully drive off any
odor from paint and lubricants used in the manufacturing
process. Additionally, for the first few minutes after each
lighting, vapor may condense and fog the glass and flames
may be blue. After a few minutes this moisture will disappear and within 15-30 minutes the flames should become
Noise caused by metal expanding and contracting as it heats
up and cools down, similar to the sound produced by a furnace or heating duct. This noise does not affect the operation or longevity of your fireplace.

Step 12. Before Lighting the Fireplace
Step 13. Lighting the Fireplace
Before lighting the fireplace, be sure to do the following:
You’ve reviewed all safety warnings, you’ve checked the
fireplace for gas leaks, you know the vent system is
unobstructed, and you’ve checked for faulty components.
Now you’re ready to light the fireplace.
Remove all paperwork from underneath the fireplace.
Review safety warnings and cautions
• Read the Safety and Warning Information section at
the beginning of this Installers Guide.
WARNING: PLEASE REFER TO THE USER’S
MANUAL FOR ALL CAUTIONS, SAFETY, AND
WARNING INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE
LIGHTING AND OPERATION OF THE FIREPLACE.
!
Double-check for gas leaks
• Before lighting the fireplace, double-check the unit for
possible gas leaks.
Double-check vent terminations and front grilles for
obstructions.
After the Installation
• Before lighting the fireplace, double-check the unit for
possible obstructions that could be blocking the vent terminations or the front grilles.
!
Double-check that the grate shipping support was removed (see Step 10).
• Make sure that the grate is resting directly on the refractory.
Double-check for faulty components
• Any component that is found to be faulty MUST BE replaced with an approved component. Tampering with the
fireplace components is DANGEROUS and voids all warranties.
A small amount of air will be in the gas supply lines. When
first lighting the fireplace, it will take a few minutes for the
lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is
complete, the fireplace will light and will operate normally.
Subsequent lightings of the fireplace will not require this
purging of air from the gas supply lines, unless the gas
valve has been turned to the OFF position, in which
case the air would have to be purged.
NOTE: The fireplace should be run 3 to 4 hours on the initial
start-up. Turn it off and let it cool completely. Remove and
clean the glass. Replace the glass and run the fireplace for
an additional 8 hours. This will help to cure the products
used in the paint and logs.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
1. After repeated
triggering of the red
or black piezo button,
the spark ignitor will
not light the pilot.
2. The pilot will not
stay lit after carefully
following the lighting
instructions.
With proper installation, operation, and maintenance your gas fireplace will
provide years of trouble-free service. If you do experience a problem, this
troubleshooting guide will assist a qualified service person in the diagnosis
of a problem and the corrective action to be taken. This troubleshooting
guide can only be used by a qualified service technician.
Possible Cause
Corrective Action
a. Defective ignitor.
Check the spark at the electrode and pilot. If no spark and electrode wire is
properly connected, replace the ignitor.
b. Defective pilot or
misaligned electrode
(spark at electrode).
Using match, light the pilot. If the pilot lights, turn off the pilot and trigger the red or
black piezo button again. If the pilot lights, an improper gas/air mixture caused the
bad lighting and a longer purge period is recommended. If the pilot will not light,
ensure the the gap at the electrode and pilot is one-eighth (1/8) inch to have a
strong spark. If the gap is OK, replace the pilot.
c. No gas or low gas
pressure.
Check the remote shut-off valvess from the fireplace. Usually, there is a valve near
the gas main. There can be more than one (1) valve between the fireplace and the
main.
d. No LP in tank.
Check the LP (propane) tank. You may be out of fuel.
a. Defective
thermocouple.
Check that the pilot flame impinges on the thermocouple. Clean and/or adjust the
pilot for maximum flame impingement.
Ensure that the thermocouple connection at the gas valve is fully inserted and tight
(hand tighten plus 1/4 turn).
Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one millivolt meter lead wire on
the tip of the thermcouple 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 15mV, replace the thermocouple.
3. The pilot is
burning, there is no
gas burner, the valve
knob is in the ON
position, and the
ON/OFF switch is in
the ON position.
b. Defective valve.
If the thermocouple is producing more than 15 millivolts, replace faulty valve.
a. ON/OFF switch or
wires defective.
Check the ON/OFF switch and wires for proper connections. Place the jumper
wires across the terminals at the switch. If the burner comes on, replace the
defective switch. If the switch is OK, place the jumper wires across the switch wires
at the gas valve. If the burner comes on, the 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 that the thermopile is fully inserted into the pilot bracket.
Check the thermopile with a millvolt 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 in 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 the valve knob to the ON position. Place the ON/OFF switch in the ON
position. Check the millivolt meter a the thermopile terminals. The millivolt meter
should read greater than 125mV. If the reading is acceptable, and if the burner
does not come on, replace the gas valve.
d. Plugged burner
orifice.
Check the burner orifice for stoppage. Remove stoppage.
e. Wall switch or
wires are defective.
Follow the corrective action in Symptom and Possible Cause 1.a above. Check
the switch and wiring. Replace where defective.

Troubleshooting
Symptom
(continued)
Possible Cause
Corrective Action
3. (Continued)
f. High limit switch is defective or
has reached its maximum
temperature.
Allow the unit to cool. If the burner remains lit after the fireplace warms
up, the switch is good.
4. 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 the pilot flame for maximum flame impingement on
thermocouple. Follow lighting instructions carefully.
5. The pilot and main
burner extinguish
while in operation.
a. No LP in tank.
Check the LP (propane) tank. Refill the fuel tank.
b. Inner vent pipe leaking exhaust
gases back into the system.
Check for gas leaks.
c. Horizontal vent improperly
pitched.
The horizontal vent cap should slope down only enough to prevent any
water from entering the unit. The maximum downwards lope is 1/4 inch.
d. Glass too loose and air tight
packet leaks in corners after
usage.
Tighten the corner.
e. Bad thermopile or
thermocouple.
Replace if necessary.
f. Improper vent cap installation.
Check for proper installation and freedom from debris or blockage.
a. Flame impingement.
Adjust the log set so that the flame does not excessively impinge on it.
b. Improper venturi setting.
Adjust the air shutter at the base of the burner.
c. Debris around venturi.
Inspect the opening at the base of the burner. NO MATERIAL SHOULD
BE PLACED IN THIS OPENING.
a. Insufficient oxygen being
supplied.
Ensure that the vent cap is installed properly and free of debris. Ensure
that the vent system joints are tight and have no leaks.
6. Glass soots.
7. Flame burns blue
and lifts off burner.
Ensure that no debris has been placed at the base of, or in the area of
the air holes in the center of the base pan beneath the burner.
Ensure that the glass is tightened properly on the unit, particularly on top
corners.
