How the Warranty Works
1. All warranties by the manufacturer are set herein and no claim shall be made against the
manufacturer on any oral warranty or representation. All claims under this Limited Warranty must be
made in writing by your dealer.
2. Any stove or part thereof that is repaired or replaced during the Limited Warranty period will be
warranted under the terms of the Limited Warranty for a period not exceeding the remaining term of the
original Limited Warranty or six (6) months, whichever is longer.
3. For any part or parts of this stove, which in our judgment show evidence of defects, Blaze King
reserves the option to repair or to replace the defective part(s) through an accredited distributor or
agent, provided the defective part is returned to the distributor or agent, transportation prepaid, if
requested.
4. If you discover a problem that you think may be covered by the Limited Warranty, you MUST REPORT
it to your Blaze King dealer WITHIN 30 DAYS from the date the problem was first detected, giving them
proof of purchase and the date of purchase. The dealer will investigate the problem and work with Blaze
King to determine whether the problem:
a) Is covered by the Limited Warranty or
b) Can be fixed in your home or does the product need to be returned to Blaze King for repair.
5. If Blaze King determines that the stove needs to be returned to Blaze King for repair, the customer
has the responsibility and the expense of removing it from their home and shipping it to Blaze King. If
the problem is covered by the Warranty, Blaze King will repair or replace the item at their discretion and
the customer will be responsible for return shipping and re-installation in their home.

SAFETY
CHIMNEY FIRE
In the event of a fire in the chimney:
a. Adjust the thermostat to its lowest setting.
b. Check the Loading Door to be sure it is tightly closed.
c. Get everyone out of the house.
d. Call the Fire Department immediately. After the fire is out, have your chimney inspected by a Building Inspector
or certified chimney sweep. Any damaged chimney components should be replaced before the stove is used
again. A masonry chimney that is damaged should be repaired or rebuilt.
Contact you Fire Department for further advice. Your family should have a prearranged plan so that each person
will know what to do and will act immediately if such an emergency arises.
SMOKE DETECTORS
Install at least one smoke detector on each floor of your home to ensure your safety. It should be located away
from the wood stove and close to the sleeping areas. Locating a smoke detector too close to a wood stove can
cause the smoke detector alarm to sound if a puff of smoke is emitted while the wood stove door is open during
reloading. Follow the smoke detector manufacturers placement, installation, and maintenance instructions Your
local fire Department may provide assistance in selecting smoke detectors.
FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
Every home should have at least one approved "Class A-B-C" fire extinguisher. It should be mounted on the wall,
near an exit and close to the stove 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 wood stove must comply with you 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 noncompliance with building and/
or fire codes may jeopardize your homeowner's insurance.
CHILDREN
Do not allow children to play near the stove or with the operating knobs. Severe burns may be inflicted by touching
some of the parts of the stove and by opening the loading door. Train children to stay away from the stove and
never leave children unattended in the room when the stove is in operation.
CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS
For a safe installation, proper clearances to combustible materials must be observed (see pages 19 & 20). Failure
to follow these guidelines voids the certification and warranty, is illegal, and can result in a fire causing property
damage, injury, or death. Keep combustible (burnable) materials at least as far away form the wood stove as the
table on page 19 indicates. Combustible materials include items such as plasterboard or wood-paneled walls,
furniture, wooden mantles, bookshelves, carpets and drapes. Firewood should not be stored within the specified
clearances.
AVOID FIRE
Maintain the designated clearance distance to combustibles. Insulation must not touch the chimney. There must
be the designated air space clearance around the chimney. This air space around a chimney is necessary to allow
natural heat removal from area. Insulation is this space will cause a heat buildup which may ignite wood framing.
FUEL
THIS WOOD STOVE IS FOR USE WITH SOLID WOOD FUEL ONLY.
NEVER USE GASOLINE, GASOLINE-TYPE LANTERN FUEL, KEROSENE, CHARCOAL LIGHTER FLUID TO
START OR 'FRESHEN UP' A FIRE IN THIS HEATER. KEEP ALL SUCH LIQUIDS WELL AWAY FROM THE
HEATER WHILE IT IS IN USE.
Do not burn materials soaked in flammable liquids, trash, garbage, plastics, gift wrappings, coal, charcoal, naptha,
engine oil, chemical cleaners, chemical fire starters, treated or painted wood, saltwater drift wood, railroad ties,
plywood, particle board. Do not burn sawdust wood shavings or chips in this wood stove.

Version 1.03
Blaze King, Royal Guardian, Model RGT-3001
OWNER'S INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
When selecting wood for the Model RGT-3001, it is preferable that you use seasoned wood. Dry, seasoned wood
will burn cleaner and produce less creosote. Dry or small pieces of fuel will provide a hotter fire. Larger pieces can
be used to provide a longer burn time.
CAUTION: Do not place wood fuel within the space heater installation clearances or within the space required for
wood loading and ash removal.
DISPOSAL OF ASHES
Ashes should be placed in a sealed non combustible container until they are thoroughly cooled. The closed
container of ashes should be placed on a non-combustible material pending final disposal. Once they are cooled
they can be disposed of by burial in soil or other suitable methods. Do not store other waste in the ash container.
Ashes should never be placed in wooden or plastic containers, or in paper or plastic bags, no matter how long the
fire has been out. Coals have been known to stay hot for several days when embedded in ashes.
WARNING REMOVE ASHES ONLY WHEN THEY ARE COOL. NEVER STORE HOT ASHES IN A GARAGE OR
BASEMENT. HOT ASHES WILL GENERATE CARBON MONOXIDE AND/OR FLAMMABLE GASES. THESE
GASES MAY CAUSE SUFFOCATION.
CHIMNEYS (See "Definitions" on page 8)
The use of make-shift chimney installation is not allowed. Before connecting a wood-burning unit to an existing
chimney, inspect the chimney to be sure it is in good condition. There should be no cracks or holes. Often it is
impossible to see these from the outside. A certified chimney sweep should inspect your chimney and give you an
accurate assessment of its condition. The cross-sectional area must not be less than that of the 6" diameter flue
collar (28.27 square inches). Relining or rebuilding may be necessary to make a Masonry Chimney safe. A proper
chimney is most important for safe, satisfactory operation of any wood heating system. Inspect the Chimney and
Chimney Connector (if installed) at least twice each month during the heating season. Any leak must be repaired or
it may admit more air and cause exhaust gasses to condense and form creosote. Patches of creosote in your
chimney indicates that such Leaks are present. If a significant amount of creosote has accumulated, it should be
removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire. (See "Creosote and Soot Formation and Need for Removal", below)
"Never intentionally start a chimney fire to clean the flue."
CREOSOTE and SOOT FORMATION AND NEED FOR REMOVAL
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors which combine with expelled moisture to
form creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slow-burning fire. As a result,
creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote makes an extremely hot fire. The
Chimney and Chimney Connector should be inspected at least twice each month during the heating season to
determine if a creosote or soot build-up has occurred. If creosote has accumulated it should be removed to reduce
the risk of a chimney fire. To control creosote build-up, It is preferable to build a small intense fire, rather than to
have a large smoldering one.
LOADING DOOR
Do not operate you stove with the loading door open. This stove is not designated or intended to be
operated with the loading door open. Do not leave your stove unattended when the loading door is not tightly
closed even when starting a fire. Leaving the loading door open AFTER the fire is well established can cause
overheating of the stove. Such overheating can cause the stove to warp.
Check the loading door gasket for deterioration at least twice each heating season. Inspect the gasket for physical
deterioration, missing sections or obvious leakage. To check the gasket further, insert a piece of paper into the
door opening and close and latch the door. Obvious resistance should be felt when pulling the paper out. Repeat
this check several times around the perimeter of the door.

CHIMNEY and CHIMNEY CONNECTOR, and Table 1, Page 19 for minimum clearances.
DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE SERVING ANOTHER APPLIANCE.
TOOLS NEEDED FOR INSTALLATION
If you are planning to install this stove yourself, you will need the tools listed below. Consult the chimney and chimney
connector manufacturer's installation instructions for tools needed for installation.
a. 1/4 Wrench, Nut driver, or Socket with Handle
b. Medium Flat Blade Screwdriver and Square Screwdriver.
c. Tape measure.
d. Carpenters Level.
e. See Mobile Home section for tools needed for Mobile Home stove installations.
PLANNING FOR YOUR STOVE PLACEMENT
As you plan your installation, consider the following:
a. Stove should be placed in the most central location in the home. Consider safety, convenience, traffic flow, and the
fact that the stove will need a chimney and chimney connector
b. MINIMUM CLEARANCES SHOWN IN FIGURES 21-26, PAGE 20 ARE TO PREVENT WALLS AND CEILINGS
FROM CATCHING ON FIRE.
c. The dimensions and position of the Floor Protector. See pages 19 & 20
d. The type of chimney system to be used. See page 19.
Electrical Power. (Optional) The stove can be equipped with a fan assembly and a seven foot electrical cord. Do not
route the cord in front of the stove.
REDUCED WALL CLEARANCES
The stove and chimney connector may be placed closer to the wall than shown in Figures 21-26, Page 20 if the wall is
properly protected. The two wall protection systems described on pg. 11 & 12, allow a reduced clearance from the wall
to the stove.
CHECK YOUR CHIMNEY
Before connecting any wood-burning unit to an existing chimney, inspect the chimney to be sure that it is in good
condition. There must be no cracks or holes. The cross-sectional area must not be less than that of the flue collar (6"
diameter 28.27 square inches). A proper chimney is crucial for safe, satisfactory operation of any wood heating
system. Relining or rebuilding may be necessary to make the chimney safe, efficient, and in conformity with local
codes.
Masonry chimneys that have a very large cross-section (100 square inches or more) may experience poor draft and
may require relining to reduce the cross-section and provide a proper draft.
This is also an ideal time to clean the existing chimney. For peak efficiency, a clean chimney flue is essential. A
qualified professional chimney sweep can perform both inspection and cleaning. If you choose to clean your own
chimney, use the proper tools. Homemade cleaners, such as chains, may damage your chimney.
Be sure the Ash Clean-Out door for the masonry chimney is closed tightly. This door may be in the wall in the room
below the chimney or outside near the ground level of the chimney. This is frequently overlooked, and can cause
severe drafting problems in masonry chimney installations.
The chimney MUST extend above the roof at least three feet & two feet above any area of the roof within ten feet of the
termination of the chimney.
If the chimney is a prefabricated metal chimney system be sure chimney pipe is attached, together and, to the woodburning unit with a minimum of three (3) screws securing each connection.

OWNER'S INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
CHIMNEY HEIGHT AFFECTS DRAFT
Tall chimneys usually provide a strong, dependable draft. The chimney should be kept warm to enhance the draft.
This will also reduce creosote accumulation caused by smoke and condensation of water vapor. A buildup of
creosote can reduce the draft and will become a potential fire hazard. Chimney tops should NEVER be near trees or
other tall objects that might cause down drafts. In new or weatherized homes that are very air-tight, operating
exhaust fans, such as those installed in kitchens and bathrooms, can create a negative pressure in the room and can
result in a down draft in a chimney. Smoke may be drawn into the room, particularly when the loading door is opened
for loading. If this problem arises, open a window while the exhaust fan is being used or turn off exhaust fan while
reloading the stove. If make-up air is NOT supplied, the negative pressure may also draw gasses from a gas
furnace. An outside air connection directly to the stove is the preferred system. Outside air kits are an option
available from your dealer.
If you have a forced-air heating system, you can use the existing ducts and furnace fan to circulate air through the
house. DO NOT connect any ducting between the stove and the heating system ducts or any other air-distribution
ducts.

REDUCED WALL CLEARANCES
REDUCED WALL CLEARANCES
NOTE: Before planning on or using reduced wall clearances, consult local building authorities. Local codes may
vary.
The stove and chimney connector may be placed closer to the wall than shown in Figures 21-26 if the wall is properly
protected. The two wall protection systems described below allow a 12 inch clearance from the wall to the stove.
The National Fire Protection Association Standard 211 recognizes 8 different wall protection systems. Two of these
clearance reduction systems are galvanized steel sheet metal with a minimum thickness of 24 gauge, or 4-inch
nominal thickness brick (FIGURE 23-25). Either of these materials must be spaced out 1 inch from the wall surface.
Non-combustible spacers, with sheet metal screws, are used to maintain the 1-inch air space providing free air
circulation. It is also required that there are openings around the entire system, including the bottom, so that cooling
air can circulate in the 1-inch air space.
(This clearance reduction system is independent of clearance kits described on Page 14, and minimum clearances
detailed on Page 31. Both clearance reduction systems maybe combined, with local code approval .)
The clearance reduction system should extend 38 inches beyond each side of the heater measured diagonally from
the back stove corner (figure 6), 38 inches above the stove top in ceiling exit installations (measured diagonally from
the back of the stove top), and it must extend as high as the thimble penetration of the wall to the chimney wall
behind the vertical run of the chimney connector.
A variety of prefabricated clearance reduction systems may be available through your stove dealer. Always look for
a safety listing label on the product when selecting a prefabricated clearance reduction system and make sure it
designed for use with a wood stove. Follow exactly the installation instructions provided with the system.

GENERAL INSTRUCTION
FLOOR PROTECTOR
The stove must be placed on a floor protector if the floor is made of wood or other combustible flooring.
Floor protection material: Any non-combustible material or Listed floor protector.
To provide the proper clearances, the floor protector must extend beyond the front and sides, see Figure 7.
The floor protector must extend to the wall under a wall exit installation and must extend 2" beyond each side of the
horizontal section of chimney connector.
WARNING FAILURE TO ALLOW THE REQUIRED CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS
OR TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE FLOOR PROTECTION CAN CAUSE A HOUSE FIRE. SUCH A FIRE
CAN RESULT IN DAMAGE TO PROPERTY AND SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
VENTING SYSTEMS
For further information on chimney that meets the approval specifications for this unit, please see page 27 of this
manual or check the approval label on the rear of the stove. Many of the illustrations in this manual are courtesy of
the Consumer Products Safety commission. The venting system consists of a chimney connector and a chimney.
These get extremely hot during use. In the event of a creosote fire temperatures inside the chimney may exceed
2000 degrees. To protect against the possibility of a house fire the chimney connector and chimney must be
properly installed and maintained. A thimble must be used when a connection is made through a combustible wall
to a chimney. A chimney support package must be used when a connection is made through the ceiling to a
prefabricated chimney. These accessories are absolutely necessary to provide safe clearances to combustible wall
and ceiling material.
This stove may be connected to a lined masonry chimney or a listed high temperature prefabricated residential type
chimney. Do not connect it to a chimney serving another appliance. To do so will affect the safe operation of both
appliances, and will void the stove warranty.

CHIMNEY CONNECTOR
The chimney connector must be 6 inch diameter 24/26 MSG Black/Blue steel. Do not use aluminum or galvanized
steel. They cannot properly withstand the extreme temperatures of a wood fire. Do not use chimney connector pipe
as a chimney. You must connect your stove to a chimney comparable to those illustrated in this manual.
Chimney connector sections must be attached to the stove and to each other with the crimped end toward the stove
(FIGURE 5). This allows creosote to run into the stove and not onto the outside of the pipe. All joints should be
secured with three metal screws
For proper operation the chimney connector should be as short as possible. Horizontal lengths of chimney should
have an upward slope from the stove of 1/4 inch per foot.
Maintain 18 inches clearance between the chimney connector and the wall and ceiling unless a wall protection
system is installed, or a listed double wall connector pipe system is used to connect to the chimney.

OWNER'S INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
CONNECTION TO A MASONRY CHIMNEY
If the stove is being connected to a masonry chimney, the chimney should be examined for cracks,
loose mortar and signs of deterioration or blockages. The stove should not be installed until it is
determined that the chimney is safe for use. Since an oversized flue contributes to the accumulation of
creosote, the size of the flue should be checked to determine that it is not too large for the stove. For
this stove, it is recommended that the flue size should not exceed the overall area of a 6" flue (28.27
square inches). The chimney should also be checked to assure it meets the minimum standards of the
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 211 or CAN-CSA B365. Following is a list of the
more critical minimum requirements for a properly constructed chimney.
1. The masonry wall of the chimney, if brick or modular block, must be a minimum of 4 inches. A
mountain or rubble stone wall must be at least 12 inches thick.
2. The chimney must have a fire clay flue liner (or equivalent) with a minimum thickness of 5/8 inch and
must be installed with refractory mortar. There must be at least 1/2 inch air space between the flue
liner and the chimney wall (FIGURE 9). An equivalent liner must be a listed chimney liner system or
other approved material.
3. A chimney inside the house must have at least 2 inches of clearance to the combustible structure.
4. A chimney outside the house must have at least one inch clearance to the combustible structure. A
fire stops must be installed at the spaces where the chimney passes through floors and/or ceiling
(FIGURE 10).
Remember that insulation must not contact the chimney. There must be air space around the chimney.
Insulation must be 2 inches or more from the chimney (FIGURE 11).
A chimney must be the required height above the roof or other obstruction for safety and for proper draft
operation. The requirement is that the chimney must be at least 3 feet higher than the highest point
where it passes through the roof and at least 2 feet higher than the highest part of the roof or structure
that is within 10 feet of the chimney, measured horizontally (FIGURE 12).

OWNER'S INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
THIMBLE
A thimble must be used when the connection from the stove is made through a combustible wall to a masonry chimney. There are
several methods to use for connection through a combustible wall, two of which are illustrated in this manual. Local building authorities
may be consulted or NFPA 211 and/or CAN-CSA B365 may be used for additional methods of chimney connection.
Listed prefabricated metal thimbles may also be used with wood stoves. The manufacturer's installation instructions for the thimbles
must be strictly followed to assure the safety of the system. Be sure to maintain the designated clearance to combustible materials.
1.
Brick Chimney Thimble Assembly:
Construction of the brick thimble assembly requires 12 inches of brick around a fire clay liner. Be sure the point of penetration
allows an 18 inch clearance from the connector to the ceiling. An appropriate opening for a 6 inch chimney connector must be
cut in the wall to maintain the required 12 inches of brick separation from combustibles. It will be necessary to cut wall studs
and install a header and sill frame to maintain proper dimensions and to hold the weight of the brick (FIGURE 13).
NOTE:
Whenever cutting through a wall, check first with local building authorities to be sure building integrity
is secured.
If it is necessary to cut a hole in the chimney liner, use extreme care to keep it from shattering. Refractory mortar must be used at the
junction to the chimney liner (FIGURE 14). After the assembly is complete, insert the chimney connector in the fire clay liner. Do not
push it beyond the inside edge of the chimney liner because this will affect the draw of the chimney.
2. 6 inch solid pack chimney with metal supports as a thimble.
For the method of installation to a masonry chimney shown in FIGURES 15 and 16, it will be necessary to purchase a 6 inch inside
diameter 12 inch long section of prefabricated listed solid pack chimney to use as a thimble. Purchase a wall spacer, trim collar and
wall band that are manufactured to fit the chimney section you purchase.
The safety features of this system are; the 2 inch air space between the chimney section and the combustible wall, and the 1 inch air
space around the chimney connector as it passes through the chimney section to the chimney.
The location of the opening through the wall to the chimney must leave a minimum 18 inch vertical clearance between the connector
pipe and the ceiling to prevent the ceiling from catching fire.
For instructions on installation of the thimble, refer to chimney manufacturer's instructions.

OWNER'S INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
CONNECTION TO A METAL PREFABRICATED CHIMNEY
CHIMNEY
One of the following listed chimney connectors (with compatible listed chimney system) can be used with this stove. In the
U.S.A.: Duravent Dura Plus HT, AmeriTec HS, Metalbestos HT or Security 103 HT. In Canada; you must use high
temperature chimney meeting S629M requirements.
When a metal prefabricated chimney is used, the manufacturer's installation instructions must be followed precisely. You must
also purchase and install the ceiling support package or wall pass through and "T" section package, firestops (where needed),
insulation shield, roof flashing chimney cap, etc. (from the same manufacturer) Maintain the proper clearance to the structure
as recommended by the manufacturer. This clearance is usually a minimum of 2 inches, although it may vary by manufacturer
or for certain components.
There are basically two methods of metal chimney installation. One method is to install the chimney inside the residence
through the ceiling and the roof (FIGURES 17 and 18). The other method is to install an exterior chimney that runs up the
outside of the residence (FIGURES 19 and 20). The components illustrated may not look exactly like the system you purchase,
but they demonstrate the basic components you will need for a proper and safe installation. Make sure chimney pipe is
attached together and to the wood-burning unit with a minimum of three (3) screws to secure each connection.
The chimney must be the required height above the roof or other obstruction for safety and for proper draft operation. The
requirement is that the chimney must be at least 3 feet higher than the highest point where it passes through the roof and at
least 2 feet higher than the highest part of the roof or structure that is within 10 feet of the chimney, measured horizontally
(FIGURE 12 on page 16).
THIMBLE
When a wall exit installation is used, a thimble must be installed. Either a manufactured or a site-constructed (brick) thimble
may be used.
In a roof exit installation, the ceiling support box supplied with the manufactured chimney acts as a thimble.

20, Fig. 24-25-26).
2. Mark the position for the hole in the wall.
3. IF REQUIRED, be sure to mark the hole for Outside Air Kit.
4. Move the stove out of the way.
5. Cut pilot hole in the wall.
6. Cut the hole for the wall penetration components and frame in the sides of this hole. Install Listed Wall Pass-Through. Refer
to the pipe manufacturer's installation instructions.
7. Follow the Manufacturer's Installation Instructions to install Prefabricated Chimney system. NOTE: To meet the code, the
chimney must extend above the roof at least three feet and two feet above any area of the roof within ten feet of the
termination of the chimney. The RGT-3001's flue collar accepts only 6" chimney connector. The small end of the connector
fits into the collar to enable any water vapor which may form in the chimney to drain back into the stove. Close clearance
chimney connector is not normally required for residential standard clearance installations. Check with your local building or
fire inspector for local requirements. Chimney connectors can also be used horizontally as a connection between the stove
and a masonry chimney provided that the horizontal length does not exceed three feet AND THE CONNECTOR SLOPES
UPWARD TOWARD THE CHIMNEY AT THE RATE OF 1/4" PER FOOT. This slope in the horizontal connection is required
to encourage the water vapor to drain back into the stove. Use a carpenter's level and a ruler or tape measure to check the
slope. You should also use a level to check the chimney connector exiting the stove to be sure it is vertical. Under no
condition should the chimney connector have more than one 90 degree bend or two 45 degree bends. The distance
between the chimney connector and the ceiling must not be less than 18". The chimney connector sections should be
secured together with no less than three sheet metal screws per joint. The chimney connector should be attached to the
stove' flue collar with screws provided. Be sure all options, including outside air cap, flange, collar and pipe are installed at
this point before putting the stove in its final position.
8. Slide the stove back into position.

7. Follow the manufacturer's installation instructions to install Prefabricated Chimney system. NOTE: to meet the code, the
chimney must extend above the roof at least three feet and two feet above any area of the roof within ten feet of the termination
of the chimney. The RGT-3000's flue collar accepts only 6" chimney connector. The small end of the connector fits into the
collar to enable any water vapor which may form in the chimney to drain back into the stove. Close clearance chimney
connector is not normally required for residential standard clearance installations. Check with your local building or fire inspector
for local requirements. Chimney connectors can also be used horizontally as a connection between the stove and a masonry
chimney, provided that the horizontal length does not exceed three feet AND THE CONNECTOR SLOPES UPWARD TOWARD
THE CHIMNEY AT THE RATE OF 1/4" PER FOOT. This slope in the horizontal connection is required to encourage the water
vapor to drain back into the stove. Use a carpenter's level and a ruler or tape measure to check the slope. You should also use
a level to check the chimney connector exiting the stove to be sure it is vertical. Under no condition should the chimney
connector have more than one 90 degree bend or two 45 degree bends. The distance between the chimney connector and the
ceiling must not be less than 18". The chimney connector sections should be attached to the stove's flue collar with screws per
joint. The chimney connector should be attached to the stove's flue collar with screws provided. Be sure all options including
outside air cap, flange, collar and pipe are installed at this point before putting the stove in its final position.

OWNER'S INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
OPERATION
Your stove's performance (including its efficiency, pollutant emission level and service lifetime) depends largely on how it is
operated. You are the most important factor affecting your stoves performance. Read these operation instructions carefully.
.............................................................................................................................
BEFORE PROCEEDING FURTHER, be sure to read the following
SAFETY INFORMATION: Section 4, pages 9-10
INSTALLATION CLEARANCE INFORMATION: Section 6, pages 19 & 20.
FLOOR PROTECTION INFORMATION: Section 8, pages 19 & 20.
.............................................................................................................................
WARNING - PROVIDE ADEQUATE AIR CIRCULATION. It is essential that a source of fresh air for combustion be
provided at all times when this wood stove is in operation. In extremely tight houses, partially open a window near the wood
stove or install an Outside Air Kit.
FUEL
THIS WOOD STOVE IS FOR USE WITH SOLID WOOD FUEL ONLY. NEVER USE GASOLINE, GASOLINE-TYPE
LANTERN FUEL, KEROSENE, CHARCOAL LIGHTER FLUID OR SIMILAR LIQUIDS TO START OR "FRESHEN UP" A FIRE
IN THIS HEATER. KEEP ALL SUCH LIQUIDS WELL AWAY FROM THE HEATER WHILE IT IS IN USE.
Do not burn materials soaked in flammable liquids, trash, garbage, artificial or paper logs, plastics, gift wrappings, coal,
charcoal, naphtha, engine oil, chemical cleaners, chemical fire starters, treated or painted wood, saltwater driftwood, railroad
ties, plywood, particle board. Do not burn sawdust, wood shavings or chips in this wood stove.
When selecting wood for the Model RGT-3001, it is preferable that you use seasoned wood. Dry, seasoned wood will burn
cleaner and produce less creosote. Dry or small pieces of fuel will provide a hotter fire. Larger pieces can be used to provide
a longer burn time.
The wood for the Model RGT-3001 should be cut to lengths that are not more then 18" long; while 18" lengths will fit, 16"
lengths are preferred.
CAUTION: DO not place wood fuel within the space heater installation clearances or within the space required for
fueling and ash removal.
CAUTION: Do not overfire. If heater or chimney connector glows, you are overfiring.
STARTING A FIRE IN YOUR
ROYAL GUARDIAN MODEL 3001
NEVER USE A GRATE IN THIS WOOD STOVE. Never use a grate or other methods of supporting the
firewood in this wood stove. Build the fire directly on the firebox hearth bricks.
1.Initial start-up. Use only dry, well seasoned fuel, which has been cut, split and stacked for a minimum of six months.
2.SET THE COMBUSTION AIR CONTROL LEVER.Move the lever in the direction of the warmest setting, HIGH. See Fig. 36.
3.Open the Loading Door by lifting the loading door handle up to release the door latch.
CAUTION: Do not operate this stove if the door glass is cracked or broken. To replace broken glass, see
page 31.
4.
Starting the fire:
Place several balls of newspaper near the FRONT of the firebox and put a fairly large quantity of dry kindling on top of the
paper. Next, lay two or three pieces of wood on top of the kindling. Load the wood in a side-to-side orientation with the ends of
the logs toward the sides of the stove. Light the paper, partially close the Loading Door so that the latch touches the stove, but
do not latch it. Allow the kindling and most of the larger logs to get started, then latch the loading door. If you close the loading
door too soon, a new fire may go out. NEVER LEAVE ANY WOOD STOVE UNATTENDED WHEN THE DOORS ARE NOT
TIGHTLY CLOSED! The first fire should be long and MEDIUM-HOT to cure as much of the firebox paint as possible.
5.
Loading the firebox:
When the larger wood pieces are burning well, open the Loading Door and completely load the firebox. Close and latch the
Loading Door. Do not abuse the glass door by slamming it or striking it. Do not force the door closed if there is wood in the
firebox that is obstructing it. Let the fire burn on MEDIUM to HIGH for 20-30 minutes, or until the fire is well established. Then
you may adjust the combustion air to achieve the desired room temperature. See Combustion Air Control Adjustments.

OWNER'S INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
COMBUSTION AIR CONTROL
OPTIMUM SETTING AFTER LOADING OR RELOADING
1.Position: Leave the combustion air-control in the Medium to High position for at least fifteen minutes before making
further adjustments.
2.Temperature Adjustments: Adjustments to achieve the desired room temperature should be made in small increments
for the most effective clean burning operation. Even a small change may increase emissions slightly for 10-15 minutes.
Changes should be made as few times each day as possible.
3.Tampering: The combustion air control is adjusted at the factory and should not be tampered with.
FAN OPERATION (Optional)
If you have the Optional Fan Assembly installed, wait 30 minutes before you turn the fans on to begin circulating the warm air
into the room. Use LOW speed setting when the stove is set for a low burn and a higher speed setting with hotter fires.
RELOADING THE FIREBOX
1. Maintaining an efficient fire. A bed of hot coals is the most important requirement for keeping an efficient fire. A bed of
hot coals will help the stove maintain a more even temperature as well as getting the new load of wood started easily. Let
each full load burn down to a coal bed before reloading. Many new wood stove users hesitate to load enough wood to sustain
a fire, fearing that a full wood stove automatically means a hotter fire. The combustion air control, set at the lowest air control
setting, permits a low fire even with the firebox full. Maintaining a clean burning low fire is easier with a partial load of wood.
For medium and high burn rates, a full load of wood may be used. Four 6" diameter logs may burn up to 8 hours. Burn times
may vary considerably due to the quality of wood and how well it is seasoned. How well your house is insulated and what you
set your air control at will also affect burn times.
2. Set the Combustion Air Control Knob to the warmest setting.
3. Open the Loading Door.
.............................................................................................................................
WARNING
ALWAYS OPEN THE DOOR LATCH AND ALLOW THE FIRE TO BUILD UP SLIGHTLY BEFORE FULLY
OPENING THE LOADING DOOR. IF THE LOADING DOOR IS OPENED TOO FAST, THE SUDDEN
INTRODUCTION OF AIR CAN CAUSE THE FIRE TO FLARE AND DISCHARGE SMOKE AND FLAME INTO
THE ROOM. SUCH A DISCHARGE CAN BURN PERSONS WHO ARE NEAR THE WOOD STOVE.
.............................................................................................................................
4. Load The Firebox. Rake the bed of hot coals to the FRONT of the firebox BEFORE putting the new fuel load in the stove.
To allow combustion air to flow under and around the fuel, make a trench in in the exact center the coal bed, from front to
back. The bottom of the coal bed trench must be lower than the air jet hole just inside the bottom of the firebox door. If
anything blocks the air jet, poor ignition and improper burning will result. FULLY LOAD THE FIREBOX. Put the wood in the
firebox in a side-to-side orientation with the ends of the logs toward the sides of the stove. The firebox will easily accept logs
up to 16".
5. Close the Loading Door and latch it. Do not abuse the glass door by slamming it or striking it. Do not force the door closed
if there is wood in the firebox that is obstructing it.
6. Combustion Air Control Adjustment. Leave the air control in the fully open position (the warmest setting or 15 minutes, or
until the fire is well established) before making further adjustments. Turning down the thermostat too soon may cause
creosote formation in the chimney. Once the fire is well established, adjustments may be made for low, medium or high fire,
depending on heat needs of the home.
For a low fire, (11,000 to 15,000 btu/hr) getting the fire well established is particularly critical. If the wood being used is not well
seasoned, it may be necessary to leave the air control setting in the fully open position for much longer than 15 minutes to
assure a clean, low burn. When the fire is burning well on high, reset the air control in steps to medium, then lower, over a 510 minute period. Watch the flames in the top of the firebox. Try to keep a good flame pattern just under the secondary air
diffuser at all times. When there is no flame pattern in the top of the firebox, the stove is less efficient (produces less heat from
a load of wood) and burns less clean (makes and deposits more creosote in the chimney system). When starting a low fire, do
not turn the fans on for the first 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the fans may be turned on. For a medium burn (16,000 to
22,000 btu/hr) leave the air control set at high for 15 minutes, or until the fire is well established. Then move the air control to
the medium setting. Watch for a flame pattern in the top of the stove. When that flame is out the stove is less efficient and
burns dirtier. When starting a medium fire turn the fans on low to medium, depending on the heat needs of the home.
For a high fire (23,000 to 35,000 btu/hr) the air control setting may be left on high at all times. The fans may be turned on
medium to high at any time during the burn cycle.

DISPOSAL OF ASHES
WARNING
NEVER STORE HOT ASHES IN A GARAGE OR BASEMENT. HOT ASHES WILL GENERATE CARBON
MONOXIDE AND/OR FLAMMABLE GASES. THESE GASES MAY CAUSE SUFFOCATION.
Disposal of ashes: Ashes should be placed in a sealed non combustible container until they are thoroughly
cooled. The closed container of ashes should be placed on a non-combustible material pending final disposal.
Once they are cooled they can be disposed of by burial in soil or other suitable methods.
ASH REMOVAL
The ashes should be removed any time they come within one inch of the door's lower sill. A thick bed of ashes will
significantly limit the amount of wood you can get in the firebox. Wood burns best in a bed of ashes 1/2 inch to one inch thick.
It is not necessary or advisable to completely remove all of the ashes when cleaning this wood stove.
ASH PAN REMOVAL (OPTIONAL)
If your Royal Guardian RGT3001 is fitted with an optional ash pan follow these instructions for ash removal. The ash
pan is factory installed option and can not be added to stoves which were originally manufactured without the optional ash pan.
WARNING: REMOVE ASHES ONLY WHEN THEY ARE COOL. NEVER STORE HOT ASHES IN A
GARAGE OR BASEMENT. HOT ASHES WILL GENERATE CARBON MONOXIDE AND / OR FLAMABLE
GASES. THESE GASES MAY CAUSE SUFFOCATION BE SURE YOU OBSERVE THE SAFETY
INSTUCTIONS REGARDING
“DISPOSAL OF ASHES” DESCRIBED ABOVE.

8.
After the ash bed has cooled down, remove the ash plug, located at the bottom centre of the firebox, by slipping a poker or
similar tool through the small handle loop on the top of the plug
Scrape the ashes down through the open ash dump hole and into the ash pan fitted into the stove pedestal. Do not be
concerned about “cleaning” the fire box completely as the next fire will burn better on a small bed of ash (up to ½” deep).
When the necessary ashes have been dumped down the ash dump into the ash pan, clean out the area around the dump
to ensure that the plug fits properly back into the ash dump.
REPLACE THE ASH DUMP PLUG; NEVER OPERATE THE STOVE WITH THE PLUG REMOVED. TO OPERATE THE
STOVE WITH THE PLUG REMOVED OR NOT PROPERLY IN PLACE IS DANGEROUS.
After you have replaced the ash dump plug spread the remaining ashes across the firebox and cover the ash dump plug
with a layer of ashes.
Remove the ash pan from the stove pedestal and flip up the two side lids to cover the open ash pan. (See Fig. 37,)
CAUTION: ENSURE THE PAN HAS COOLED DOWN BEFORE REMOVAL.
Dispose of the ashes in a safe manner as described above: “DISPOSAL OF ASHES”.
Before you replace the ash pan back into the stove pedestal ensure the pedestal is cleaned to allow proper seating of the
ash pan back into the pedestal. Replace the ash pan into the pedestal ensuring that the ash pan lids are OPEN. It is
important that the ash pan be fully inserted and seated against the pedestal front.

MAINTENANCE
AUTHORIZED SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE
Your local BLAZE KING dealer is your authorized service representative. Contact him as soon as possible if you have
any problems with operating or maintaining your BLAZE KING Model 3001. The dealer will help you solve operating
problems, provide replacement parts, and/or arrange warranty service repairs as required. Dealers will need information
such as model, serial number, date of purchase, and a summary of the problem.
CREOSOTE AND SOOT FORMATION
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors which combine with expelled moisture to form
creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote
residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote makes an extremely hot fire. The chimney connector
and chimney should be inspected at least twice each month during the heating season to determine if a creosote buildup
has occurred. If creosote has accumulated it should be removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.
The design of the Model 3001 should reduce the accumulation of creosote to a low level if it is operated properly (see
Operation Instructions, Section 9, page 27). Even so, some creosote will eventually accumulate and must be dealt with.
The frequency of start-up operations and the temperatures at which the stove is usually operated will affect the rate of
accumulation. If significant creosote buildup occurs, re-examine your fire-building and burning procedures. Consult the
trouble-shooting guide at the end of these instructions.
CREOSOTE REMOVAL
The chimney connector and chimney should be inspected at least twice each month during the heating season to
determine if a creosote or soot buildup has occurred. If creosote has accumulated, it should be removed to reduce the
risk of a chimney fire. Hire a chimney sweep, or clean the chimney yourself with a tight-fitting chimney brush. Makeshift
equipment; hoses, tire chains, etc. - can damage the flue and/or do an unsatisfactory cleaning job. The stove should
also be inspected at this time and cleaned if needed. To inspect and clean the chamber inside the stove, allow the fire to
go out and the stove to cool down. Remove the first section of pipe above the stove and inspect the area immediately
below the flue exit. Clean with a vacuum cleaner. Remove as much creosote and fly ash as possible from the area
around the 2" x 4" Air Intake Transfer Tube. Heavy accumulations of creosote and ash in this chamber, if not removed,
may ignite and cause a very intense fire which could structurally damage the stove. Re-install the first section of pipe to
the stove. Refer to the Installation Instructions.
LOADING DOOR GASKET MAINTENANCE
Safe and efficient operation of any airtight wood stove depends greatly on the integrity of the gaskets. Check the loading
door gasket at the beginning of the heating season and at least twice during the heating season. When the gasket is
frayed or no longer seals, it must be replaced. Inspect the gasket for physical deterioration, missing sections or obvious
leakage. To check the gasket further, insert a piece of paper into the door opening and close and latch the door.
Obvious resistance should be felt when pulling the paper out. Repeat this check several times around the perimeter of
this door.
REPLACING THE DOOR GASKET
If the door gasket is to be replaced, be sure you have a replacement part ready to reinstall. See your Blaze King dealer.
Be sure the fire is out, and the stove has cooled down. The door does not have to be removed from the stove.
With a pair of pliers, pull the old door gasket out of the channel and dispose of it. Clean out the channel so the new
gasket can fit smoothly. Run a small bead of high temperature silicone adhesive (such as G.E. Silicone Sealer, or the
equivalent) along the center of the channel. Start the new gasket in the lower right corner. Do not stretch or cut the
gasket. Distribute the gasket evenly around the frame. Close the Loading Door and allow the adhesive to dry. Check the
fit of the door gasket. Insert a piece of paper into the door opening and close and latch the door. Obvious resistance
should be felt when pulling the paper out. Repeat this check several times around the perimeter of the door.
CLEANING THE GLASS
The glass may become coated during a low (overnight) burn. Adjusting the thermostat to the warmest setting after
reloading each morning will usually keep the glass clean. Heavier deposits may require hand cleaning. Manual glass
cleaning should be done when the stove and glass are cool. DO NOT CLEAN THE GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT. Use a
soft cloth and a suitable glass Cleaner, available from most hearth dealers. After using any cleaner, thoroughly rinse the
glass with water to remove any deposits left by the cleaner. Failure to remove all traces of glass cleaner will result in the
glass cleaner residue baking on. This residue will be very difficult to remove.

OWNER'S INSTALLATION AND OPERATION MANUAL
LOADING DOOR GLASS REPLACEMENT
Your BLAZE KING Model 3001 is equipped with a strong, heat-resistant ceramic glass intended to withstand
extremely high temperatures and tested for continuous use above 1200 degrees Fahrenheit. However, this glass
can be broken through improper use. If glass replacement becomes necessary contact your dealer for
replacement Blaze King parts only. DO NOT SUBSTITUTE ANY OTHER MATERIAL FOR THIS PURPOSE.
..........................................................................................................................................................................................
WARNING
BROKEN DOOR GLASS IS SHARP. ALWAYS WEAR EYE PROTECTION AND PROTECTIVE GLOVES WHEN
HANDLING GLASS. DISCARD THE GLASS IN A CLOSED CONTAINER INACCESSIBLE TO CHILDREN.
...........................................................................................................................................................................................
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Allow the fire to completely burn out and the stove to cool down.
Open the door and remove the twelve #10 x 3/8" screws holding the six retainers to the inside of the cast door.
Be sure to put aside all parts for re-installation.
Remove the damaged glass and the old glass gasket.
The replacement glass has the gasket installed on it's outer perimeter. Place the glass in the door frame. Be
sure the words "Blaze King" etched in the glass reads correctly when the door is closed.
6. Install the retainers with the 10 x 3/8" round head screws.
CHIMNEY DRAFTS
If you suspect a draft problem in an existing chimney, determine the draft by using a water manometer (draft
gauge). The draft should be measured with the stove at medium burn. After the measurement is completed, fill
any holes that were made to take the reading by using a sheet metal screw of proper size. The draft should
measure between. 02" and .10" of water. If the draft is outside these limits, the stove may not be operating
properly. Drafts below .02" will cause excessive smoke spillage, incomplete combustion and fire start-up
problems. A draft over .10 may cause overheating and short burn times. A draft near the upper limit will contribute
to the door glass staying clean.
OPTIONAL FAN ASSEMBLY
Routine maintenance of the OPTIONAL Fan Assembly on the back of the stove is not required. Should it become
necessary to replace the Fan Assembly, order Part # Z8310A from your local dealer.
RHEOSTAT REPLACEMENT
1. Unplug the fan power cord from the wall.
2. Remove the four screws on the fan cage containing the rheostat switch.
3. Remove the bower from the cage. DO NOT DISCONNECT THE WIRES; Locate the two wires coming from
the rheostat switch.
4. Unplug the two wires from the rheostat switch.
5. Pull the knob straight off the switch.
6. Unscrew the nut holding the switch to the cage.
7. Replace the switch with the proper replacement part from your Blaze King dealer.
8. To reinstall the switch, reverse the above steps being sure to tuck the wires back into the assembly so they do
not come in contact with the fan blade.
REPLACING THE SECONDARY AIR DIFFUSER
If it is necessary to replace the Secondary Air Diffuser, proceed as follows:
1. Obtain a replacement Secondary Air Diffuser from your Blaze King dealer.
2. Allow the fire to go out and the stove to cool down.
3. Remove all of the brick from the firebox and clean out the ashes. Back off the set nut on the bolt between
diffuser and front of stove.
4. From inside the stove, pull the Secondary Air diffuser straight toward the front of the stove (about 1") until the
front clip allows it to drop free. WARNING: There are four bricks ON TOP OF the diffuser. When released
from the front clip, the diffuser is unexpectedly heavy.
5. Lower the Air Diffuser into the firebox and remove the bricks.
6. Pivot the Secondary Air Diffuser until it can be removed from the firebox.
7. Install the new Secondary Air Diffuser. Replace the four firebricks on top of the diffuser and lift it into position.
Position the back of the diffuser so the two tabs on the back of the diffuser fit into the rectangular hole in the
top back of the stove, push the front up, and slip the front clip into position.
8. Tighten the set nut between the diffuser and the stove front.
9. Re-install the firebrick in the firebox.
