Stardance® Direct Vent/Natural Vent Gas Heater
General Information
The Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Room Heater, Model
Nos. SDDVTCB, SDDVTEB, SDDVTBS, SDDVTBD, SDDVTBM,
SDDVTCSCB, SDDVTCSEB, SDDVTCSBS, SDDVTCSBD, SDDVTCSBM is a vented gas appliance listed to the ANSI Standard
Z21.88-2009 and CSA 2.33-2009 for Vented Room Heaters, and
CSA 2.17-M91, Gas-Fired Appliances For Use at High Altitudes.
The installation of the Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Room
Heater must conform with local codes, or in the absence of local codes, with National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54
— latest edition and CSA B-149.1 Installation Code. (EXCEPTION: Do not derate this appliance for altitude. Maintain the
manifold pressure at 3.5” w.c. for Natural Gas and 10.0” w.c. for
LP gas at maximum input.)
This appliance is only for use with the type of gas indicated on
the rating plate. This appliance is not convertible for use with
other gases unless a certified kit is used.
Installation and replacement of gas piping, gas utilization
equipment or accessories, and repair and servicing of
equipment shall be performed only by a qualified agency,
preferably NFI or WETT (Canada) certified. The term “qualified agency” means any individual, firm, corporation, or
company that either in person or through a representative
is engaged in and is responsible for (a) installation or replacement of gas piping, or (b), the connection, installation,
repair, or servicing of equipment, who is experienced in
such work, familiar with all precautions required, and has
complied with all the requirements of the authority having
jurisdiction.
The Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Room Heater should
be inspected before use and at least annually by a qualified
service agency. It is imperative that control compartments,
burners, and circulating air passageways of the appliance
be kept clean.
The Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Room Heater and its
individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
The Stardance Direct Vent/Natural Vent Room Heater must be
isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the
gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than
1/2 psig.
‘Direct Vent’ describes a sealed combustion system in which incoming outside air for combustion and outgoing exhaust enter
and exit through two separate concentric passages within the
same sealed vent system. The system does not use room air to
support combustion. The Direct Vent system permits the gas appliance to be vented directly to the outside atmosphere through
the side of the house or vertically through the roof. Conventional
venting systems (Natural Vent) take air from the room for combustion and vent the exhaust vertically through the roof to the
atmosphere.
This appliance is approved for bedroom installations in the U.S.
and Canada.
This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket* manufactured
(mobile) home, where not prohibited by state or local codes.
WARNING: Operation of this heater when not connected to a

Stardance® Direct Vent/Natural Vent Gas Heater
Vent Termination Clearances
When planning the installation, consider the location of the
vent terminal and clearances. Some of the most common
clearances to keep in mind are shown in Figure 11.
Important: All vent clearances must be maintained.
Check your vent termination clearances against Figures 11 through 13.
The vent should be placed so that people cannot be burned
by accidentally touching the vent surfaces when the stove
is operating.
The vent termination should be located where it cannot be
damaged by such things as automobile doors, lawn mowers or snowblowers and it should be located away from areas where it could become blocked by snow, etc.
Some considerations are:
• Obstructions or impediments to venting.
• Nearby combustible materials that could come into contact with combustion exhaust gases.
• Other nearby openings {within 12” (305 mm)} through
which exhaust gas could reenter the building.
• All vegetation within 3’ (76 mm) that may interfere with
the draft.
Other factors that influence where the installation will be
sited include the location of outside walls, where additional
heat may be desired in the home, where the family members gather most regularly, and perhaps most importantly,
the distance limitations of the venting system.
Your stove is approved to be vented either through the side
wall, or vertical through the roof.
• Vermont Castings Group does not require any opening
for inspection of vent pipe.
• Only Vermont Castings Group and DuraVent venting
components specifically approved and labelled for this
stove may be used.
• Minimum clearances between vent pipes and combustible materials is one (1”) inch (25 mm), except where
stated otherwise.
• Venting terminals shall not be recessed into a wall or
siding.
• Horizontal venting must be installed on a level plane
without an inclining or declining slope.
There must not be any obstruction such as bushes, garden
sheds, fences, decks or utility buildings within 24” from the
front of the termination hood.
Do not locate termination hood where excessive snow or
ice build up may occur. Be sure to check vent termination
area after snow falls, and clear to prevent accidental blockage of venting system. When using snow blowers, make
sure snow is not directed towards vent termination area.
Location of Vent Termination
It is imperative the vent termination be located observing
the minimum clearances as shown on this page.
IMPORTANT
Direct Vent Only
• The horizontal termination must not be recessed into
the exterior wall or siding.
• Horizontal vent runs must be level toward the vent
termination.
• Clearances around the vent termination must be
maintained.
• For installations using DuraVent pipe, parallel installations with minimum wall clearance have restricted
access for connecting the Horizontal Vent Cap straps
to the vent pipe. See the maker’s instructions for recommended installation procedures.

Installation Instructions
1. Determine whether the length of pipe fits the appliance
outlet by attempting to engage the parts. If the parts engage smoothly, proceed to Step 2. If obstructions, interference or loose fit is noted, contact the appliance manufacturer or Selkirk Metalbestos with the dimensions of
the appliance outlet.
2. Slide the length of pipe over the appliance outlet a minimum of 11⁄2” and screw to the appliance outlet collar using a minimum of two (2) #8 x 1/4” sheet metal screws.
Appliance Adapter (AAV)
The appliance adapter (AAV) adapts DIRECT-TEMP to
most direct vent appliances incorporating outlet collars
configured to receive most common 4” (ID) 65⁄8” (OD) or
5” (ID) by 8” (OD) “Twist Lock” Style, direct vent systems.
The adapter incorporates two (2) indentations on the outer
wall of the inlet end, which are designed to “Twist Lock”
into place upon attachment to the appliance outlet. Align
the adapter indentations with the entry slots of the appliance outlet and slide together. Turn the adapter clockwise
approximately one-quarter turn to lock in place. The outlet
end of the adapter is standard DIRECT-TEMP construction.

Adjustable Length (AJ)6/07
An Adjustable Length is available to accommodate installations where non-standard lengths are necessary. The adjustable length telescopes down over a standard length of
pipe and provides an extension range of 31⁄2” (89 mm) to
101⁄2” (267 mm). Install by sliding the inlet end of the adjustable length over the outlet end of a standard length of
pipe. After positioning the adjustable length appropriately,
secure it to the standard length with two (2) #8 x1/4” sheet
metal screws (provided). Seal the area between both the
top and bottom of the adjustable length outer wall and the
outer wall of the standard length with an approved silicone
sealant.
Fire Stopping
DIRECT-TEMP must be firestopped wherever it passes
through floors, ceiling or walls. The only location where a
firestop is not required is at the roof level. Both vertical support components with trim plates provide for firestopping.
The wall thimble also acts as a firestop. at other locations,
a firestop spacer (FS) should be installed. In the attic the
firestop should be placed on top of the joist framing to prevent debris from falling into the joist framing. (Figure 38)

NOTE: The wall thimble accommodates wall thicknesses
of 41⁄2” (114 mm) to 71⁄2” (191 mm). If a larger range is needed due to a thicker wall, it is permissible to field fabricate a
metal sleeve extension and attach it to the shields.
6. Install the horizontal termination
ST930 to the exterior wall using four (4) all purpose screws through the holes located
Selkirk wall thimble
at each corner of the termination. Make sure the arrow
6/07
(embossed on the front
of the termination) is pointing
up. (Figure 41) If the house has vinyl siding, a Vinyl
Siding Standoff (VS) must be installed prior to installing
the horizontal termination. Refer to the appliance manufacturer to determine if one is recommended. Attach
the vinyl siding standoff to the exterior side of the wall
(making sure it is level and centered with respect to the
opening) with screws (provided) at each corner of the
standoff. Attach the horizontal termination to the standoff. (Figure 42)
If the wall is brick or concrete, and contains no combustible material, a 7” (178 mm) round penetration hole is
adequate. The wall thimble is not required. The perforated straps of the horizontal termination provide a method
of attachment. These can either be threaded through
the opening or wall thimble (if used) and screwed to the
pipe or removed with a pair of tin snips if not used. Use
proper masonry fasteners to attach the horizontal termination to the wall.
7. If a wall thimble is used, push the pipe (which is connected to the appliance) carefully through the wall thimble

4. Determine and mark the roof penetration in the same
manner.
5. Cut a hole in the roof at this point large enough to satisfy
all clearance-to-combustible requirements as specified
by the appliance manufacturer’s installation instructions.
6. Install the ceiling support cathedral ceiling support box
assembly, as appropriate.
7. Determine the distance from the appliance outlet to a
point just above [approximately 12” (305 mm) to 24”
20306760
Stardance® Direct Vent/Natural Vent Gas Heater
(610 mm)] either the cathedral ceiling support box or the
ceiling support plate and assemble lengths of pipe to satisfy this distance. Do not attach assembly to appliance.
8. Loosely position the support collar around the assembled
lengths (flared end down).
9. From above, lower the assembled pipe sections down
through the cathedral ceiling box or ceiling support plate
and attach it to the appliance adapter. The support collar should then be adjusted so that when the assembled
lengths of pipe are attached to the appliance, it rests on
the bottom of the cathedral ceiling support box on top of
the ceiling support plate.
10. Tighten the tabs of the collar. Secure the support collar by inserting three (3) #8 x 1/4” sheet metal screws
through the support collar and the outer wall of the pipe.
NOTE: If the cathedral ceiling support box assembly is being used, it may be necessary to temporarily connect the
assembled pipe to the appliance. Determine and mark the
location of where the support collar will be attached to the
pipe. Disconnect and remove assembled pipe. Attach the
support collar per Step 10 (where marked) and reinstall assembly. This is due to limited space within the cathedral ceiling support box. Install any required offset supports.
11. Add lengths of pipe and firestop as necessary until assembly extends to a point above the roof which complies
with local code requirements for minimum termination
height and with the appliance manufacturer’s installation
instructions. (Figure 44)
NOTE: Whenever DIRECT-TEMP penetrates through a ceiling, a floor or a wall, it must be firestopped.

Venting System Assembly - Natural Vent
General Information
The Stardance Heater is shipped from the factory as a
Direct Vent Heater. It may be converted to a Natural Vent
heater by installing the Vermont Castings Model Z31B00
FSDHAG Draft Hood Adapter.
The Stardance Heater is approved for installation as a
Natural Vent. Vermont Castings Group Direct Vent pipe
could be used directly after the Draft Hood Adapter up to
the ceiling, then B-vent pipe must be used. Do not mix
types of B-vent pipe; use components from one maker or
the other. Follow the vent component maker’s instructions
exactly. The heater will also accept standard or enamelled
7” (178mm) diameter pipe, around the Type B venting, for
decorative purposes only. (Figure 45)
NOTE: The restrictor plate supplied with the stove is
not used for Natural Vent applications.
The Stardance stove, when installed as a Natural vent
heater, includes a vent safety switch. (Page 41, Figure 81)
Operating the stove when it is not connected to a properly
installed and maintained venting system, or tampering
with or disconnecting the vent safety switch, can result in
carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and possible death.

3. Pilot burning, no gas to
main burner
4. Frequent pilot outage
problem
32
With the control knob in the pilot position, push the
control knob all the way and hold. Check for spark at
electrode and pilot. If no spark to pilot, and electrode
wire is properly connected, replace the battery in the
ignitor module and try again. Refer to Maintenance
Section. If the problem still exists, replace the ignitor
module box.
A. Defective pilot generator (thermocouple), remote wall switch
Check pilot flame. Must impinge on thermocouple/thermopile. NOTE: This pilot burner assembly utilizes both
a thermocouple and a thermopile. The thermocouple
operates the main valve operation (On and Off). Clean
and or adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement on
thermopile and thermocouple.
B. Defective automatic valve
Turn valve knob to “Pilot”. Maintain flow to pilot; millivolt
meter should read greater than 10mV. If the reading
is okay and the pilot does not stay on, replace the gas
valve. NOTE: An interrupter block (not supplied) must
be used to conduct this test.
A. Wall switch or wires defective
Check wall switch and wires for proper connections.
Jumper wire across terminals at wall switch, if burner
comes on, replace defective wall switch.. If okay,
jumper wires across wall switch wires at valve, if burner
comes on, wires are faulty or connections are bad.
B. Thermopile may not be generating sufficient millivoltage
1. Be sure wire connections form thermopile at gas
valve terminals are tight and thermopile is fully
inserted into pilot bracket.
2. One of the wall switch wires may be grounded. Remove wall switch wires form valve terminals if pilot
now stays lit, trace wall switch wiring for ground.
May be grounded to fireplace or gas supply.
3. Check thermopile with millivolt meter. Take reading
at thermopile terminals of gas valve. Should read
250-300 millivolts (minimum 150) while holding
valve knob depressed in pilot position and wall
switch “Off”. Replace faulty thermopile if reading is
below specified minimum.
C. Plugged burner orifice
Check burner orifices for debris and remove.
D. Defective automatic valve operator
Turn valve knob to “On”, place wall switch to “On”
millivolt meter should read greater than 150mV. If the
reading is okay and the burner does not come on,
replace the gas valve.
A. Pilot flame may be too low or
blowing (high) causing the pilot
safety to drop out
Clean and/or adjust pilot flame for maximum flame
impingement on thermopile and thermocouple.
B. Possible blockage of the vent
terminal
Check the vent terminal for blockage (recycling the flue
gases).

3. OFF position: The system is off. If fan speed has been
enabled, blower will continue to operate until OFF delay
time expires. The slide switch should be placed in the
OFF position if you will be away for an extended period
of time. If the remote receiver is mounted out of reach
of children, the OFF position also functions as a safety
device by both turning the system off and rendering the
receiver inoperable.
Optional 6 Hour Shutdown
1. The receiver comes preset from the factory with a 6
hour shutdown from its last ON or flame lower operation.
This is done to prevent the appliance from continuing
to operate if unattended.
2. You may disable this feature if you wish. To disable,
change the receiver privacy (DIP) switch #1 ONLY to
the OFF position. Make sure the transmitter privacy
(DIP) switches are set the same as the receiver. Follow
the instructions on how to set the privacy (DIP) switch
setting.
3. By disabling this feature, your appliance may continue
operating unattended.

Stardance® Direct Vent/Natural Vent Gas Heater
Maintenance
Your Stardance Gas Heater will provide years of service
with minimal upkeep. The following procedures will help
ensure that your stove continues to function properly.
Annual System Inspection
Have the entire heater and venting system inspected annually by a qualified gas technician. Replace any worn or
broken parts.
Logset and Burner /
Cleaning and Inspection
Cleanliness is critical to the proper function of the heater.
The logset and burner must all be kept free of dust and
unobstructed by debris. Inspect these areas before each
use and clean as necessary.
1. Turn the burner OFF and let the heater cool completely
before cleaning.
2. Remove the barrier screen and stove front by lifting up
and then swinging the bottom out to disengage it from
the heater shell. (Figure 83)
3.Carefully remove the glass and frame assembly and
place it out of the way on a flat, padded surface such
as a counter protected by a towel.
4.Carefully inspect the Logs for damage. Contact your
local dealer if any damage is evident. DO NOT OPERATE THE HEATER WITH DAMAGED LOGS.
5. Use a soft bristled brush to sweep dust or debris from
the Logs, Pilot and Burner. Use care as the logs are
fragile and susceptible to damage. DO NOT USE A
VACUUM TO CLEAN THE LOGS OR BURNER.
6. Replace the glass panel and frame assembly.
7. Replace the Stove Front.
Care of Cast Iron
An occasional dusting with a dry rag will help keep the
painted surfaces looking new. Use high-temperature
stove paints, available through your local dealer, to touchup areas as needed. Clean areas to be painted with a wire
brush and be sure to cover the logs, burner and valve assembly, glass and frame assembly. Apply the paint sparingly; two light coats of paint will give better results than a
single heavy coat.
Cleaning the Glass
WARNING: Allow the glass to cool completely before attempting to clean.
DANGER
HOT GLASS WILL
CAUSE BURNS.
DO NOT TOUCH GLASS
UNTIL COOLED.
NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN
TO TOUCH GLASS.
A barrier designed to reduce the risk of burns from
the hot viewing glass is provided with this
appliance and shall be installed.
DANGER
It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically. During
start-up, condensation, which is normal, forms on the inside of the glass and causes lint, dust and other airborne
particles to cling to the glass surface. Also initial paint

4. Apply a thin bead of high temperature silicone rubber
sealant along the inside corner of the glass frame, all
around the perimeter. Place the flat gasketed side of
the glass panel back into the steel frame. Pinch the
rounded inside-facing gasket material to bulk it up.
5. Replace the glass frame and front panel as previously
described.
Inspect the Vent System Annually
ST139
ST139
Radiance
remove front
4/20/01 djt
Have the vent system inspected annually by a qualified
technician. Shut off the main gas supply before inspecting the system. Both the inner exhaust pipe and the outer
combustion supply pipe must be checked to confirm that
they are unblocked and in good condition.
Check the Gas Flame Regularly
To ensure that the stove is operating properly, check the
flames periodically to confirm that they match Figure 86.
The flames will be blue during the first 15-20 minutes of
operation, and will gradually turn to yellow after that.
Figure 84 Remove the stove front and glass frame.
Gasket Replacement
The Stardance Gas Heater uses a ‘tadpole’ type gasket to
seal between the glass panel and the frame. In time, this
gasket can become brittle and compressed and should beST141
pull glass latch
replaced. New gasket is available from your dealer.
10/ 99
Shut off the gas supply and allow the stove to cool. Wear
safety goggles and a dust mask.
1.Remove the barrier screen, front, glass frame and
glass panel. (Figs. 84) Remove the old gasket. Use a
razor blade to separate the glass and gasket from the
frame, and to clean the glass of any remaining cement
or bits of gasket. Use a cold chisel if necessary.
2. Determine the correct length of gasket by laying it out
around the edge of the glass. Allow an extra 1 - 2” (2550mm). Mark the spot to be cut. Use a utility knife.
3. Starting on a long edge, remove about 6” of the protective paper strip and apply the flat adhesive face of the
gasket around the outside-facing edge of the panel.
Continue around the panel, applying a bout 6” at a time
and being careful to not stretch the material. Do not
overlap the gasket ends. (Figure 85)
Figure 86
Do not use your stove if the flame pattern differs from that

shown here. Contact your
Vermont Castings dealer or a
SDDVT log flames
qualified technician for6/07
help.
Stove Disassembly
If there is ever a need to remove the firebox assembly
from the stove shell, support the firebox with solid stands
about 6” (152 mm) tall under the left and right outer edges
of the firebox base. Do not set the firebox assembly directly on the floor; this can damage the control valve and/
or the gas lines from the valve to the firebox.
Before removing the firebox from the shell, disconnect
the on/off switch wires from the valve. If the assembly
includes the optional fan, disconnect the fan rheostat. If
the installation includes a wall thermostat, disconnect the
thermostat leads from valve.
Disconnection and reconnection to the gas line should
only be done by a qualified gas service technician.
