SAFETY NOTICE
IF THIS APPLIANCE IS NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED A HOUSE FIRE MAY RESULT. FOR YOUR SAFETY, FOLLOW THE
INSTALLATION DIRECTIONS. CONTACT LOCAL BUILDING OR FIRE OFFICIALS ABOUT RESTRICTIONS AND INSTALLATION
REQUIREMENTS IN YOUR AREA. PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE MANUAL BEFORE YOU INSTALL AND USE YOUR NEW
APPLIANCE. FAILURE TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE, BODILY INJURY or DEATH.
CAUTIONS:
NEVER vent the appliance to other rooms or buildings. The appliance must be vented to the outside ONLY.
NEVER burn the appliance with the viewing door open.
FIRE EXTINGUISHER:
Every home should have at least one fire extinguisher. An approved "Class A-B-C" extinguisher should be mounted on the wall near an
exit and close to the appliance, but not so close that accessibility to the extinguisher could be blocked by a fire. Your local fire
department can advise you concerning the most appropriate location.
BUILDING AND FIRE CODES, PERMITS AND INSPECTIONS:
The installation of this gas appliance must comply with your local building and fire codes. Always contact you local Building Inspector
and/or Fire Department before beginning the installation process. If required, obtain a permit before installation and have the completed
installation inspected. Remember that not complying with building and/or fire codes may jeopardize your homeowner's insurance.
CHILDREN:
Do Not Allow Children to play near the appliance or with the controls. Severe burns may be inflicted by touching the door or glass, the
front, sides or top of the appliance. Train children to stay away from the appliance, and never leave the children unattended in the room
when the appliance is in operation.
SMOKE and CO-DETECTORS:
Install at least one smoke detector on each floor of your home to ensure your safety. It should be located away from the gas appliance
and close to the sleeping areas. Follow the smoke detector manufacturers' placement, installation and maintenance, instructions. Your
local Fire Department may provide assistance in selecting smoke detectors and CO-detectors. It is strongly recommended, for your
families protection, that a CO-detector be placed in all homes that utilize gas in any form. In the U.S.A. contact the Consumer Product
Safety Commission in Washington, D.C. 20207 for additional information.
THE APPLIANCE AREA MUST BE KEPT CLEAR FROM COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS GASOLINE AND OTHER
FLAMMABLE VAPORS AND LIQUIDS.
NOTICE - COLD WEATHER OPERATION
WARNING - OPERATION OF YOUR PEGASUS GAS STOVE WITH ICE OBSTRUCTIONS IN THE VENT SYSTEM IS
DANGEROUS. DO NOT OPERATE THE GAS APPLIANCE UNLESS YOU ARE SURE THE VENT SYSTEM IS CLEAR.
When using any gas appliance (LPG or NAT GAS) water is a byproduct of the combustion process.The amount of water varies slightly
depending on several factors. Generally an appliance which is rated at 40,000 BTU per hour will produce approximately 2 liters of water
vapor every hour. That’s a considerable amount of water which has to be dealt with. Under normal conditions this water is expelled into
the atmosphere as a warm vapor, via the vent system, and does not cause a problem. However, in very cold weather this vapor will
condense and freeze on any exposed surface it comes in contact with. This can cause serious problems, particularly in “Direct Vent”
appliances because the exhaust is typical only a few inches from the outside wall. In cold weather moisture vapors, which are exhausted,
can cause a serious buildup of frost and ice on surrounding surfaces. This can interfere with the venting. Extending the venting to
exhaust the gases further out from the wall is sometimes, but not always, an advantage. Extending the vent system too much can
present other design problems including the possibility of ice falling from eaves above. The amount of moisture being expelled cannot be
controlled by the manufacturer; It is far more dependent upon wind conditions etc. It is therefore the homeowner’s responsibility to ensure
that there is no excessive ice buildup during operation. Problems are most severe when there is no wind or when the prevailing wind
drives the exhaust gases back against the surfaces nearby. Cap design cannot control the movement of the vapors after they exit the
system. Under extremely cold conditions the vent cap itself can become so cold that the vapors condense and cause ice or frost buildup
on the vent cap. Severe icing of the cap system can affect the operation and safety of the appliance.
CAUTIONS- When operating your Pegasus gas stove during cold weather you must check the exhaust cap frequently to ensure it is
clear of ice buildup. Blaze King is not responsible for any damages caused by external ice buildup.
If the combustion, flame pattern, startup or shut down characteristics of your stove change, it could be a sign of ice buildup in the vent
system. If this occurs notify your Blaze King Dealer. DO NOT operate your stove if there is excessive ice buildup on the vent cap.
Ensure that any ice or frost buildup on surfaces around the exhaust are not causing problems or damage.

WHITE MINERAL DEPOSITS
One of the byproducts of the combustion process in a gas appliance is a mineral which can show up as
a white film on the ceramic glass of the viewing door. The composition of the deposit varies widely from
location to location and also from time to time in the same locations. You may have the problem for a
time and then not see it for many months when it will reappear in your area. It seems this is associated
with the varying sulfur content of the gas. We have discussed this problem with ceramic glass
manufacturers and they cannot give us a definitive answer to this problem. We have input from several
dealers who have tried different cleaning products with varying results. We can only make the following
recommendations but we cannot guarantee results in very case.
WARNING!!
Never clean the ceramic glass or any other part of the appliance while it is still hot. Please
shut off your appliance and wait for it to cool down prior to cleaning.
1) Clean the glass regularly as soon as you notice the buildup (white film). If the film is left for a long
period of time it will build up and bake on making it hard or almost impossible to remove
2) NEVER use an abrasive cleaner on the ceramic glass. Any abrasion of the surface will immediately
affect the strength of the glass. An emulsion type cleaner is best.
3) Use a soft, damp, preferably cotton, cloth to apply the cleaner and a soft, dry cloth to dry the glass.
Most paper towels and synthetic materials are abrasive to ceramic glass and should be avoided.
WHITE OFF by Rutland has been tested and shown to be effective in removing ugly mineral deposits
from ceramic glass.
NOTE: This is a problem beyond BLAZE KING'S control and is not covered under warranty.
DOOR SEAL GASKET
The front door of your new Blaze King direct vent is gasketed and has been adjusted for a tight seal. As with all
direct vent appliances, a tight seal is necessary for maximum performance and proper venting of combustion
products. With usage the door gasket material may compress. The door may require periodic adjustment to
maintain a proper seal. The time to make this adjustment will vary depending upon individual hours of use, btu
settings, and frequency of opening and closing the door. Check the door on your appliance periodically, especially during the first 90 days of operation, to ensure it is sealing properly. Your Blaze King dealer/installer
should be contacted to properly adjust the door if required.

PREPARATION FOR INSTALLATION IN A SOLID-FUEL BURNING FIREPLACE
The installer must mechanically attach the marking label #0163 supplied with the gas fireplace insert to the inside of the firebox of the fireplace
into which the gas fireplace insert is installed.
Cutting any sheet-metal parts of the fireplace, in which the gas fireplace insert is to be installed, is prohibited.
“If the factory-built fireplace has no gas access hole(s) provided, an access hole of 1.5 inch (37.5 mm) or less may be drilled through the lower
sides or bottom of the firebox in a proper workmanship like manner. This access hole must be plugged with on-combustible insulation after the
gas supply line has been installed.”
The fireplace flue damper can be fully blocked open or removed for installation of the gas fireplace insert.
The fireplace and fireplace chimney must be clean and in good working order and constructed of non-combustible materials.
Chimney cleanouts must fit properly.
Glass doors, screen rails, screen mesh and log grates can be removed from the fireplace before installing the gas fireplace insert.
Smoke shelves , shields and baffles may be removed if attached by mechanical fasteners.
Trim panels or surrounds shall not seal ventilation openings in the fireplace.
1. Remove fire box from carton. Place on floor.
2. Note 4 screws on each side of the fire box.(Fig. 32, p.11) Remove screws.
3. Attach the left and right cover plates to the firebox using the front top and bottom screws on each side of the firebox as indicated in the
illustration on the previous page. Note that you will have to remove the door latch on the right side of the stove, secure the right cover plate, and
then re-install the door latch.
4. Attach both lower left and right shroud assemblies by lining up the bottom two screw holes on each side of the fire box, with the corresponding
holes in the shroud assemblies, and securing with the screws previously removed. ( Fig. 33, p. 11)
5. Attach left and right upper shroud brackets where the top two screw holes on each side are. When the bracket is attached there should be a
single screw hole facing forward towards the front of the stove. Brackets have a 3/4” bend on 2 sides, which point down.
6. Locate two oblong screw holes on top of the right lower shroud. The insert valve bracket will mount here.
7. Position the valve bracket just behind the right lower shroud. The small support leg on the bracket should be facing up and towards the fire
box. Line up the two holes in the triangular bottom of the valve bracket, underneath the two oblong holes of the shroud. Secure with two screws.
WARNING: FAILURE TO USE ONLY PARTS SPECIFICALLY APPROVED WITH THIS APPLIANCE MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR
PERSONAL INJURY.
8. The small support leg should now be lined up with the hole in a tab coming off of the fire box. Secure support leg to fire box with screw
provided in kit.
9. Locate two screws securing the Robertshaw valve to the fire box. Remove screws.
10. Pull valve over to new valve bracket, line up the corresponding holes and secure with two screws. The valve MUST be moved from its
shipping bracket to the insert bracket.
11. Locate two holes on the top right edge of the right hand shroud. This is where the burner switch/piezzo push button assembly will mount.
12. Locate the burner switch/piezzo button assembly secured adjacent to the valve. Cut the tie wrap and move the assembly over to the right
shroud and line up the two holes on the switch bracket with the holes on the top lip of the right shroud. Secure with two screws.
13. At this point in time it is necessary to determine which side of the shroud the fan cord will come out of. Two wire support brackets are
included in the insert kit. These attach to the left and right side of the fan box with two screws. If the cord is to be routed out of the left side, it is
necessary to install only one support bracket. If fan cord is to be routed out the right side then both support brackets must be installed. (Fig.
32,34, p. 11)

TOP VENT MEASUREMENTS
Vertical Rise is calculated by measuring from the stove top to the top of the
Termination Cap (Vertical termination's), and from the stove top to the
bottom of the vent on Horizontal terminations. Horizontal Run is calculated by
measuring from the closest edge of the starting section to the end of the
Termination Cap.

REAR VENT MEASUREMENTS
Vertical Rise is measured from the top of the pipe exiting the stove to the top
of the termination cap (Vertical terminations.) or from the top of the pipe
exiting the stove, to the bottom of the horizontal pipe run. Horizontal Run is
calculated by measuring from the back of the stove to the end of the
Termination Cap or elbow.

OAK LOG INSTALLATION
-A- BACK LOG: This larger log should be placed in the back of the stove close to the far back wall. The flat
side of (Log A) should rest flush against the flat part of the back bracket with the rough textured side of the
log pointing towards you. The curved part (of Log A) should be facing upwards.
-B- FRONT LOG: This smaller log fits in the right and left side brackets closest to you. The flat portion (of Log
B) should be placed flush against the back of the bracket. After setting this log in the brackets, the rough
textured side of the log should be pointing outward, facing you.
-C- LEFT TWIG: This Y shaped log (C) sits on the left side of the front and back logs (A and B). This log (C)
should be placed on the grooves so that the base of the Y is sitting on the groove in the front log and the
right leg of the Y rests on the peg on the back log.
-D- RIGHT TWIG: On the right side of Log B. there is a groove. Invert the twig so that the legs are pointing
down. Place the left leg of the twig into the groove of Log B and place top portion of twig onto pin. (Note:

HIGH ALTITUDE STATEMENT
This unit has been tested for installations at a high altitude (1370 meter or higher) in accordance with Canadian test standard CAN/CGA2.17. Higher altitudes effect the atmospheric pressure & heat value of gaseous fuels. When installing this unit at high altitudes, the rated
input will be lower than at sea level. The lowered oxygen content in the air and lowered gas density requires installing a different orifice
in order to achieve clean combustion of the unit. Consult the unit data plate for proper high altitude orifice size and fill out the information
sticker attached to the unit when field converting. For high altitude installations, consult the local gas distributor or the authority having
jurisdiction for proper rating methods.

A. This appliance has a pilot that is lit with a push button Piezo lighter. When lighting the pilot, follow these
instructions exactly.
B. BEFORE LIGHTING smell all around the appliance area for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor because
some gas is heavier than air and will settle on the floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
 OPEN WINDOWS
 DO NOT TOUCH ANY ELECTRIC SWITCH; DO NOT USE ANY PHONE IN YOUR BUILDING
 EXTINGUISH ANY OPEN FLAME
 IMMEDIATELY CALL YOUR GAS SUPPLIER FROM A NEIGHBOR'S PHONE AND FOLLOW THE

 IF YOU CANNOT REACH YOUR GAS SUPPLIER, CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT
C. Never use tools to turn or push any control knobs or switches. If any controls on your appliance
(knobs, switches, buttons, dials) fail to move or operate properly do not force them. Excessive force or the
use of tools on these controls may damage them and could result in a fire or explosion. If you have a
problem do not try to repair it, call a qualified service technician.
D. Do not use this appliance if any part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to
inspect the appliance and to replace any part of the control system or any gas control which has been under
water.

STARTING THE STOVE FOR THE FIRST TIME
 Fumes and smoke may come from your stove. This is a result from the paint and oily residue curing and
burning off on different parts of the stove and is perfectly normal. Although Blaze King burns each stove at
the factory prior to shipment, there may be areas that are not fully cured. It is suggested that the stove be
left burning with the fans off for a period of 2-3 hours. Make sure the building is properly vented during this
process.
 Condensation will usuallyappear on the inside of the glass when the stove is turned on. This is a normal
reaction, and will clear up shortly.
 Blue Flames will initially burn until the stove warms up a bit. The flames should then be more yellow.
ADJUSTING BLOWER SPEED
Your stove comes standard equipped with a Dual Squirrel Cage Fan. This fan helps distribute the heat produced
by the stove. The fan will automatically come on within approximately 10 minutes of the stove being turned on. It
will continue to run until the stove has cycled off and cooled down.
Rheostat Knob
Controls the fan speed. The fan
cannot be fully turned off, as it would
lower the efficiency of the unit.
ADJUSTING THE FLAME HEIGHT
To adjust the height of the flame, turn the silver HI/LO knob
(Pressure Regulator) located on the valve (page 32). Turn the
knob clockwise to increase flame height, and counter
clockwise to decrease.
TURNING THE STOVE ON AND OFF
Stove On / Off Switch
Use this switch to turn the
stove on and off manually.
After the pilot has been established...
One of the two Millivolt Thermostats on
the right come standard with every Direct
Vent. It mounts on the wall and is wired
directly to the stove valve. The manual
switch must be in the off position.
WhiteRogers
Robert Shaw
NOTE: If using any one of the thermostat controls, the manual switch must
be in the OFF position. If it is left ON the stove will continue to run and the
thermostats will have NO control over the stove.
