for replacing the light bulbs under the Maintenance section of this manual)
• Is the firebox switched on?
2. The heater on your firebox may emit a slight, harmless odor when first used.
This odor is a normal condition caused by the initial heating of internal heater
parts and will not occur again, if required ventilate the room.

MAINTENANCE
LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT
Allow at least 5 minutes for light bulbs to cool before touching bulbs to avoid accidental burning of skin.
Light bulbs need to be replaced when you notice a dark section of the flame or when the clarity and detail
of the log ember bed exterior disappears. There are four bulbs under the log set, which generate the
flames and embers, and two bulbs above the log that illuminate the log exterior.
LOWER LIGHT BULB REQUIREMENTS
Quantity of 4 clear chandelier or candelabra bulbs
with an E-14 (small) socket base, 40 watt rating.
DO NOT EXCEED 40 WATTS PER BULB.
HELPFUL HINTS
It is a good idea to replace all light bulbs at one
time if they are close to the end of their rated life.
Group replacement will reduce the number of times
you need to open the unit to replace light bulbs.
Care must be taken when removing the logset as
the logset contains LED’s and wires.
