IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Designer Series Direct Vent Gas Fireplace
OWNER
Please leave these instructions with the appliance.
Please retain these instructions for future reference.
WARNING
INSTALLER
• Read this owner’s manual carefully and completely before trying to assemble, operate,
•
•
or service this fireplace.
Any change to this fireplace or its controls can be dangerous.
Improper installation or use of this fireplace can cause serious injury or death from
fire, burns, explosions, electrical shock and carbon monoxide poisoning.
This fireplace is a vented product. This fireplace must be
properly installed by a qualified service person. The glass
door must be properly seated and sealed. If this unit is not
properly installed by a qualified service person with glass
door properly seated and sealed, combustion leakage can
occur.
CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING: Early signs of carbon
monoxide poisoning are similar to the flu with headaches,
dizziness and/or nausea. If you have these signs, the fireplace may not have been installed properly. Get fresh air
at once! Have the fireplace inspected and serviced by a
qualified service person. Some people are more affected
by carbon monoxide than others. These include pregnant
women, people with heart or lung disease or anemia,
those under the influence of alcohol, and those at high
altitudes.
Propane/LP gas and natural gas are both odorless. An
odor-making agent is added to each of these gases. The
odor helps you detect a gas leak. However, the odor added
to these gases can fade. Gas may be present even though
no odor exists.
Make certain you read and understand all warnings. Keep
this manual for reference. It is your guide to safe and proper
operation of this fireplace.
1. 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.
2. For propane/LP fireplace, do not place propane/LP
supply tank(s) inside any structure. Locate propane/LP
supply tank(s) outdoors. To prevent performance problems, do not use propane/LP fuel tank of less than 100
lbs. capacity.
3. If you smell gas
• shut off gas supply.
• do not try to light any appliance.
• do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any
phone in your building .
• immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s
phone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.

• in a recreational vehicle
• where curtains, furniture, clothing, or other flammable objects are less than 42" from the front, top,
or sides of the fireplace
• in high traffic areas
• in windy or drafty areas
5. This fireplace reaches high temperatures. Keep children
and adults away from hot surfaces to avoid burns or
clothing ignition. Fireplace will remain hot for a time after
shutdown. Allow surfaces to cool before touching.
6. Young children should be carefully supervised when
they are in the same room as the appliance. Toddlers,
young children and others may be susceptible to accidental contact burns. A physical barrier is recommended
if there are at risk individuals in the house. To restrict
access to a fireplace or stove, install an adjustable
safety gate to keep toddlers, young children and other
at risk individuals out of the room and away from hot
surfaces.
7. Do not modify fireplace under any circumstances. Any
parts removed for servicing must be replaced prior to
operating fireplace.
8. Turn fireplace off and let cool before servicing, installing, or repairing. Only a qualified service person should
install, service, or repair the fireplace. Have burner
system inspected annually by a qualified service
person.
9. You must keep control compartments, burners, and
circulating air passages clean. More frequent cleaning
may be needed due to excessive lint and dust. Turn off
the gas valve and pilot light before cleaning fireplace.
10. Have venting system inspected annually by a qualified
service person. If needed, have venting system cleaned
or repaired. Refer to Cleaning and Maintenance, Page
48.

grounded in accordance with local codes or in the
absence of local codes, with the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, or the Canadian Electrical Code,
CSA C22.1.
16. Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation
air in any way. Provide adequate clearances around
air openings into the combustion chamber along with
adequate accessibility clearance for servicing and
proper operation.
17. When the appliance is installed directly on carpeting,
tile or other combustible material other than wood flooring, you must set appliance on a metal or wood panel
or hearth pad extending the full width and depth of the

cracked, or broken.
IMPORTANT:
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING
CAREFULLY
It is normal for fireplaces fabricated of steel
to give off some expansion and/or contraction
noises during the start up or cool down cycle.
Similar noises are found with your furnace heat
exchanger or car engine.
IMPORTANT:

WARNING
Designer Series Direct Vent Gas Fireplace
firebox framing
Firebox framing can be built before or after the appliance
is set in place. Construct firebox framing following Figure
5, 6 or 7 for your specific installation requirements. The
framing headers may rest on the top of the firebox standoffs. Do not bring headers below top of standoffs. NOTE:
When planning your framing and installation, keep in mind
that the gas line and electric power come in on the same
end of the fireplace. Refer to Figures 2, 3 & 4 for fireplace
dimensions.
The firebox may be installed directly on a combustible floor
or raised on a platform of an appropriate height. When
the firebox is installed directly on carpeting, tile, or other
combustible material, other than wood flooring, the firebox
shall be installed on a metal or wood panel extending the
full width and depth of the enclosure.
Finishing Material
NOTE: Any remote wiring (i.e. remote control, wall switch,
and optional fan) must be done prior to final finishing to
avoid costly reconstruction.
Only noncombustible materials (i.e. brick, tile, slate, steel,
or other materials with a UL fire rating of Zero) may be
used to cover the black surface of the appliance. A 300°F
minimum adhesive may be used to attach facing materials to the black surface. If joints between the finished wall
and the fireplace surround are sealed, a 300°F minimum
sealant material (General Electric RTV103 or equivalent)
must be used.
Do not fill spaces around firebox with
insulation or other materials. This could
cause a fire.
NOTE
COLD CLIMATE INSULATION
If you live in a cold climate, seal all cracks around your appliance, and
wherever cold air could enter the room, with noncombustible material.
It is especially important to insulate the outside chase cavity between
the studs and under the floor on which the appliance rests, if the floor
is above ground level.

installation planning
There are two basic types of direct-vent installation:
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
WARNING
Venting installation
Never run the vent pipe down. This may
cause excessive temperatures which could
cause a fire.
It is important to select the proper length of vent pipe for the
type of termination you choose. It is also important to note the wall thickness.
for horizontal termination
Select the amount of vertical rise desired. All horizontal run of venting must have 1/4" rise for every 12"
of run towards the termination below 7Z\x' of vertical rise from floor of fireplace. With 7Z\x feet or more
of vertical rise from the floor of the fireplace, the horizontal run may be level. NEVER run vent piping
down.
You may use up to three 90° elbows in this vent configuration. Refer to Vertical/Horizontal Termination
Configurations on Page 21.
For vertical termination
Measure the distance from the fireplace floor to the ceiling. Add the ceiling thickness, the vertical rise in
an attic or second story, and allow for sufficient vent height above the roof line.
NOTE: You may use two 45° elbows in place of a 90° elbow. You must follow rise to run ratios
when using 45° elbows. The appliance is approved for use with three 90° elbows maximum or a
combination of 90° and 45° elbows up to a maximum of 270°.
For two-story applications, firestops are required at each floor level. If an offset is needed in the attic,
additional pipe and elbows will be required.
You may use a chase with a vent termination with exposed pipe on the exterior of the house. See Installing Vent System in a Chase below. If pipe is enclosed in chase, it is not exposed.
It is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and
the flue gas exhaust. Certain limitations apply to vent configurations and must be strictly followed.
Installing a vent system in an outside chase
NOTICE
When installing in a chase, you should insulate the chase as you would the
outside walls of your home. This is especially important in cold climates.
Insulation should be considered a combustible material. Maintain proper
clearances to all combustible materials.
NOTICE
Treatment of firestops and construction of the chase may vary from
building type to building type. These instructions are not substitutes for
the requirements of local building codes. You must follow all local building
codes.
WARNING
A chase is a vertical boxlike structure built to enclose venting that runs along the outside of a building.
A chase is required for such venting.
Always maintain minimum clearances around vent systems. The minimum clearances to
combustibles for horizontal vent pipe are 3" at the top* and 1" at the sides and bottom of the vent
system until the pipe penetrates the nearest vertical wall (1" required). A 1" minimum clearance
all around the pipe must be maintained at outside wall and on vertical runs. Do not pack the
open air spaces with insulation or other materials. This could cause high temperatures and may
present a fire hazard.
*Unless the vertical run is 7Z\x feet or higher from floor of fireplace, the clearance for the horizontal
run is 1" on all sides.

Figure 35 Support Straps for Horizontal Runs
This gas fireplace has been approved for,
• Vertical installations up to 40' (12 m) in height. Up to
a 10' (3 m) horizontal vent run can be installed within
the vent system using a maximum of two 90° elbows.
Figure 35
NOTE: Horizontal sections of this vent system require a
minimum of 3" clearances to combustibles at the top of
the flue and 1" clearance at the sides and bottom until the
flue penetrates the outside wall. A minimum 1" clearance
all around the flue is acceptable at this point of penetration.
Unless the vertical run is 7Z\x
feet or higher form floor of
FP2839
fireplace, the clearance for the horizontal run is 1" on all
restrictor disc
sides.
Vertical sections of this vent system require a minimum of
1" clearance to combustibles on all sides of the pipe.
Example: Maximum horizontal length
No elbows = 10’ (3 m)
1x45° elbows = 8.5’ (2.6 m)
2x45° elbows
= 7’ (2.1 m)
FP2308
• A minimum of ansupport
8' (2.5 m)straps
vertical rise is required.
• Two sets of 45°elbows offsets may be used within the
vertical sections. From 0 to a maximum of 8' (2.5 m)
of vent pipe can be used between elbows. Figure 27
• The maximum angular variation allowed in the system
is 270°. Figure 27
• The minimum height of the vent above the highest point
of penetration through the roof is 2' (610 mm).
• Up to two 45° elbows may be used within the horizontal
run. For each 45° elbow used on the horizontal plane,
the maximum horizontal length must be reduced by 18"
(457 mm).

1. Determine the route your vertical venting will take. If
ceiling joist, roof rafters or other framing will obstruct
the venting system, consider an offset. Refer to Figure
32 to avoid cutting load bearing members.
NOTE: Pay special attention to these installation instructions
for required clearances (air space) to combustibles when
passing through ceilings, walls, roofs, enclosures, attic
rafters, etc. Do not pack air spaces with insulation. Also
note maximum vertical rise of the venting system and any
maximum horizontal offset limitations. Offsets must fall
within the parameters shown on Page 19, Figure 18.
2. Set fireplace in desired location. Drop a plumb line down
from the ceiling to the position of the flue exit. Mark the
center point where the vent will penetrate the ceiling.
Drill a small locating hole at this point.
Drop a plumb line from the inside of the roof to the locating hole in the ceiling. Mark the center point where the

be framed to 10Z\x" x 10Z\x" (267 x 267 mm) inside
dimensions as shown in Figure 39 using framing lumber
the same size as the ceiling joist. If the area above the
ceiling is an insulated ceiling or a room, nail firestop
from the top side. This prevents loose insulation from
falling into the required clearance space. Figure 39.
Otherwise, install firestop below the framed hole. The
firestop should be installed with no less than three (3)
nails per side. Figure 38 or 39.
2. Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to reach from the burner system flue up through
the firestop. Be sure pipe and elbow connections are
fully twist-locked. Page 20, Figure 20.
3. Cut a hole in the roof using the locating hole as a center
point. (Cover any exposed open vent pipes before cutting hole in roof). The 10Z\x" x 10Z\x" (267 x 267 mm)
hole must be measured on the horizontal. Actual length
may be larger depending on the pitch of the roof. There
must be a 1" minimum clearance from the vent pipe to
combustible materials. (Insulation should be considered
a combustible material). Frame the opening as shown
on Page 20, Figure 21.
4. Connect a section of pipe and extend up through the
hole.

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
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 50. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
External regulators may be necessary for
natural gas. One- or two-pound systems
will damage this appliance and may cause
fire hazard.

WARNING
GAS SUPPLY LINE INSTALLATION
Only persons licensed to work with gas
piping may make the necessary gas
connections to this appliance.
A manual shutoff 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 51
A listed manual shutoff 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 51
IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shutoff valve)
in an accessible location. The main gas valve is for turning on
or shutting off the gas to the fireplace.
CAUTION
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, NFPA54. In Canada CSA-B149 (1
or 2) Installation Code.
Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to
liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
Check your building codes for any special requirements for locating equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male threads. This will prevent excess sealant from 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 51. 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.

Sensor
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
Thermopile
Burner, Pilot and Control Compartment
Keep the control compartment, logs, and burner areas
surrounding the logs clean by vacuuming or brushing at
least twice a year. Make sure the burner porting, pilot air
opening and burner air opening are free of obstructions
at all times.
Pilot Flame
The flames from the pilot should be visually checked as
soon as the heater is installed and periodically during
normal operation. The pilot flame must always be present when the fireplace is in operation. Figure 66. The
pilot flame has four distinct flames, one engulfing the
thermopile, one engulfing the sensor, and the other two
reaching to the main burners.
BURNER
Inspect area around the injector. Remove any lint or foreign
material with a brush or vacuum.

hooded pilot flames
Burner Flame
The flames from the burner should be visually checked
as soon as the heater is installed and periodically
during normal operation. In normal operation, at full
rate, and after operating for about 15 to 30 minutes,
the flame should be yellow and slightly taller than the
rear log. Figure 67
If the flame is blue and only in the center, turn off unit
and let cool. After unit is cool, remove logs and check to
make sure the back holes in the burner are not covered
with rock wool. If the back holes are clear, add more
rock wool to the center of the burner. Replace logs.
