INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your purchase of an Inglenook fireplace system and thank you for purchasing the
optional IN-6200. Country Flame shares our customer’s concerns to protect the environment, obtain
value from their purchase, and we will be here to assist in any way possible over the coming years as
you enjoy the added benefits of the IN-6200 to your heating system.
This owner’s manual provides the necessary information to assure proper installation, proper
maintenance, and correct operation of an Inglenook IN-6200 blower option for the Inglenook fireplace.
The IN-6200 blower option was designed to enhance the operation of the Inglenook wood fuel system
or the Inglenook gas log system.
The IN-6200 enhances the natural convection design of the Inglenook by pulling cool room air into the
bottom of the Inglenook, increasing the temperature of this air, and then pushing this heated air back
into a home’s living space. By running the IN-6200 during normal Inglenook operation, room air
heating efficiency will be increased. Obviously, Inglenook users will benefit from the added warmth
and comfort whether it is the coldest winter day of the year or just when taking the chill off a room
during a cold rainy day.
Country Flame wishes you a lifetime of warmth and happiness.

INSTALLATION, GENERAL
Installation of the IN-6200 blower system is relatively simple, if a homeowner has planned for the
installation of the optional blower system during Inglenook installation. This means that a qualified
electrician should have already made all the necessary electrical connections between the home’s electrical
system and the Inglenook fireplace. The only thing left to do to install the IN-6200 is:
a)
install the dual blowers and electrical motor that is magnetically held in place,
b)
install the thermo disk provided with the kit that will be used to control the on/off cycles of
the blower system,
c)
install and make final connections to the wiring harness which have been greatly simplified
by the design of the wiring harness,
d)
finally, the last step is to plug the blower system into a properly grounded U.L. approved
duplex outlet that was provided for during the manufacturing of the Inglenook fireplace
system and should already be connected to the home’s electrical system.
INSTALLATION, ELECTRICAL
Installation of the IN-6200 blower system should take less than 30 minutes if a qualified electrician has
previously connected the Inglenook fireplace to the home’s electrical system. The Inglenook fireplace and
the Inglenook blower system must be electrically connected and grounded in accordance with local codes,
or in the absence of local codes, with the current NFPA 70 National Electric Code or in Canada, with CSA
C22.1 Canadian Electrical Code.
FIGURE 1 is a detailed drawing of the Inglenook electrical system installed in a typical home. A qualified
electrician should make all the necessary electrical connections during installation of the Inglenook
fireplace. Note that the IN-6200 blower speed control (rheostat) can be located on any wall that suits the
homeowner. Country Flame provides an electrical box for the rheostat; however, this part will not be
required if the electrician has already completed the wiring of the Inglenook as there should already be an
electrical box ready for the rheostat to be installed in. If all electrical connections to the fireplace are
complete, then installing the IN-6200 blower system is a “plug-n-operate” process.
INSTALLATION, PREPARATION
Unpack the IN-6200 kit and ensure that all parts have been included in the kit. Ensure that no shipping
damage has occurred. If shipping damage has occurred, notify the shipping agency immediately and notify
the local Country Flame Dealer where this product was purchased. The following items should be included
in the IN-6200 kit:
-
Blower motor with double squirrel cage blades and partial wiring harness
3 prong power cord (do not remove grounding pin), ready for connection to blower harness
1100F heat sensor
Rheostat, blower speed control
Rheostat control knob
Rheostat electrical box

FIGURE 2 shows the proper location to bring electrical power to the Inglenook. Whether the Inglenook
blower system is to be immediately installed or planned as a later option, it is imperative that the electrical
supply be provided to the Inglenook fireplace during initial installation. Failure to install wiring during
installation will make future installation of a blower system more complex and expensive.

INSTALLATION, STEP 1
Step 1 assumes that all electrical systems, up to and including the Inglenook electrical box holding the
duplex outlet are installed. This standard 15-ampere electrical outlet is located on the lower right side wall
behind the bottom grill. Previous pages of this manual cover installation of the electrical system or refer to
the Inglenook fireplace Owners Manual for additional information.
Fully open the lower air inlet grill of the Inglenook. It is not necessary to remove the lower grill; however,
it is necessary to protect the grill from damage during the installation of the blower system.
FIGURE 3 shows the blower electrical harness. This wiring harness comes pre-manufactured from the
factory. This harness requires no special tools to install. Before installing the blower unit into the
Inglenook fireplace, assemble the harness, including the thermo snap disk. The blower system can now be
tested before installation by plugging it into any wall outlet and heating the snap disk with a hair dryer.
WARNING: Testing of the blower system requires electrical knowledge that cannot be provided in this
instruction manual. There are moving parts and dangerous electrical voltages present in the blower system.
If the blower is to be tested, the power cord should only be plugged in by a qualified electrician.
INSTALLATION, STEP 2
FIGURE 4 shows how to install the blower unit into the body of the Inglenook Fireplace. The wiring
harness IS NOT shown in FIGURE 4 for clarity purposes. Slide the blower alongside the Inglenook Ash
Pan Housing towards the back of the Inglenook. Position the blower unit between the Inglenook’s frame
supports as shown in FIGURE 4. The blower unit has magnetic feet that will hold the unit in place. NOTE:
If the blower rattles during operation, it is because the blower is not sitting flat on the floor or is touching
the back wall. Adjust the unit to eliminate rattling or provide some cushion between the wall and unit to
eliminate noise vibration.
FIGURE 4: BLOWER INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION, STEP 3
Once the blower unit has been positioned at the back of the Inglenook fireplace as shown in FIGURE 4, the
snap disk can be mounted in its holder. NOTE: 2 sets of two screws each have been provided for mounting
the snap disk into its holder. Only one set of screws is required. Depending on the snap disk mount, either
the 10-32 screws or the 12-24 screws will be required. FIGURE 4 shows the mounting location along the
Version 1.0b

right side of the ash pan housing on the ceiling of the lower air inlet chamber. Utilize two of the screws
provided and mount the snap disk. All connections to the wiring harness should be complete.
INSTALLATION, STEP 4
Verify the wiring is not strained, damaged, or cut from the installation procedure. Ensure proper electrical
connections of all blower system components. Once verified, the 3-prong power cord can be plugged into
the electrical duplex outlet located on the right side of the lower air inlet chamber. It is recommended that
the main circuit breaker be turned off until all connections are complete.
INSTALLATION, FINAL STEP
Ensure that the blower circuit has been energized by turning on the main circuit breaker. Ensure that the
rheostat has been set to high speed. Using a hair dryer, heat the thermo snap disk up until the system has
energized. Once the Inglenook blower system test is complete, ensure all tools have been removed and
clean up the work area. Close the Inglenook lower grill unit verifying that no damage has occurred to the
grill during the blower installation.
Once installed, the IN-6200 blower system should provide years of trouble free operation.
MAINTENANCE
The IN-6200 blower system requires little or no maintenance. On a routine basis, a light wiping of the
lower compartment chamber will be required to remove dust that has been drawn into the chamber. On an
annual basis, the blower unit can be removed to clean the squirrel cage housings. Cleaning or light
vacuuming of the upper Inglenook chamber may be required on a semi-annual to annual basis. This will
require removing the screws from the upper grill in order to obtain access to the upper chamber. Cleaning
of the Inglenook will be a function of the amount of use, the amount of dust and debris in the home, and
depends greatly on the home’s main furnace filtration system. Clean the Inglenook as necessary to ensure
proper operation and avoid allowing dust to build up.
OPERATION
Electrical power is provided to the rheostat from the main circuit breaker panel. The rheostat controls the
Inglenook blower speed by controlling the amount of power delivered to the Inglenook blower motor.
Varying the rheostat control knob will increase or decrease the speed of the air being moved through the
Inglenook fireplace. The blower system will not operate until such time that a fire, in the Inglenook
firebox, has warmed the thermo snap disk above 1100F. Once the snap disk closes, the blower system
should begin to operate. The blower system will continue to operate, even after the Inglenook fire has gone
out. The blower continues to operate until the snap disk cools down and opens the electrical circuit.
PROBLEMS
The Inglenook blower system is a very simple electrical series circuit. This means electrical power
comes from the main circuit breaker panel to the rheostat, through the electrical duplex outlet,
through the snap disk, to the blower motor, and returns to the main circuit breaker panel. In the
event the blower system does not work, test the duplex outlet by plugging in a lamp, hair dryer,
vacuum cleaner or other household appliance that uses a standard 15-ampere outlet. If this
appliance works, then it tells the homeowner that the main circuit breaker panel, the rheostat, the
electrical outlet, and all wiring to these parts are good. If the household appliance fails to operate,
ensure that the main circuit breaker has not tripped. Whether the circuit breaker is or is not tripped
the remaining electrical circuit; snap disk and blower unit, will require a qualified electrician to
provide service in the event the system is still not operating properly. Contact a local authorized
dealer or Country Flame for assistance.
