OUTSIDE COMBUSTION AIR PRECAUTIONS and RECOMMENDATIONS
NOTE: The use of outside air for combustion is optional unless required by building codes. It is only
necessary to supply outside combustion air to one Duct Extended
side of fireplace. Use model 6AK combustion air kit to Miss Joist
(refer to Page 17).
1. Avoid extremely long runs and numerous turns in duct
leading from fireplace to combustion air assembly.
These conditions increase the resistance to free flow
of air through duct. Figures 9 and 10
2. Locate combustion air assembly at an exterior location. Make sure the location cannot be accidentally
blocked. Locate assembly above snow line to prevent
snow from blocking assembly.
3. Never mount combustion air inlet assembly in garage
or storage area where combustible fumes (gasoline)
might be drawn into fireplace.
4. Combustion air may be drawn from crawl space under house when adequate supply of air is provided by
open ventilation. Figure 9

A qualified installer or service person
must connect appliance to gas supply.
Follow all local codes.
CAUTION
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 11. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
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.
CAUTION
*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.
Use only new black iron or steel pipe.
Internally tinned copper or copper tubing
can be used per National Fuel Code, section
2.6.3, providing gas meets hydrogen
sulfide limits, and where permitted by
local codes. Gas piping system must be
sized to provide minimum inlet pressure
(listed on data plate) at the maximum flow
rate (BTU/hr). Undue pressure loss will
occur if the pipe is too small.
WARNING
Approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if allowed by local codes - not provided)
External regulators may be necessary for
natural gas. One- or two-pound systems
will damage this appliance and may cause
fire hazard.
20301938
Only persons licensed to work with gas
piping may make the necessary gas connections to this appliance.
To accommodate the various configurations, access
openings in the bottom of the unit are provided for gas
line and wall switch wires. This may not be convenient for
some installation, if so you may drill an access opening
into the lower face of the unit (1” for gas line, 1/2” for the
grommet).
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/NFPA 54. In Canada CSA-B149 (1 or 2) Installation Code.
A listed manual shut-off 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 5
IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shut-off
valve) in an accessible locations. The main gas valve is
for turning on or shutting off the gas to the fireplace.
CAUTION
B-Vent Specialty Gas Fireplaces
A manual shut-off 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 12
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male threads. This will
prevent excess sealant form going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could result in clogged burner system valves.
We recommend that you install a sediment trap/drip leg
in supply line as shown in Figure 12. 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 traps moisture and contaminants. This 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.
CAUTION
WARNING
GAS LINE INSTALLATION
Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to
liquid petroleum (LP) gas.

ADJUSTMENT, CLEANING and MAINTENANCE
B-Vent Specialty Gas Fireplaces
Venturi Adjustment
Natural gas models have a closed shutter. Opening the air
shutter will cause a more blue flame, but can cause flame
lifting from the burner ports. Propane gas models have an
air shutter set at 3/16” (.188 mm) open. The same conditions as above apply for propane gas.
Figure 19
WARNING
NOTE
FP2217
Air shutter adjustment must only be
done by a qualified gas installer.
Turn off gas before servicing fireplace. It
is recommended that a qualified service
technician perform these check-ups at
the beginning of each heating season.
Air flowing through the appliance will cause dust and lint
to collect on the grate, burner and logs. Excessive buildup of dust and lint can cause the pilot and burner to operate improperly and produce hazardous levels of carbon
monoxide, a poisonous gas. The appliance may produce
carbon (soot) during operation. This carbon (soot) may
collect on some logs, some areas of the grate and on the
fireplace and vent. Slight carbon build-up is acceptable.
The following is a recommended monthly maintenance
program:
1. Turn the gas OFF at the line shut-off valve and allow
the appliance to cool.
2. Blow or vacuum all dust and lint out of the appliance,
paying particular attention to the pilot, air shutter end
of the burner, air passage into and through the appliance and control.
