NOTE: ALWAYS USE A CERTIFIED ELECTRICIAN TO MAKE ALL
ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS DURING INSTALLATION
1. Prior to the first use of the fireplace verify the following:
• Are the circuit breakers for the fireplace on?
• Are the light bulbs in your fireplace loose? (to check, follow the
instructions for replacing the light bulbs under the
maintenance section of this manual)
2. The heater on your fireplace may emit a slight, harmless odor

that the two red indicator lights are on for low heat (three
indicator lights for high heat). If this does not work, switch the
unit off for 5 minutes and try again. Consult operation section of
your practical users guide for further information.
4. The information regarding the model of your fireplace can be
found on the rating plate located under the logs in the lighting
area.
