FLUE SYSTEM
THE APPLIANCE MUST NOT BE CONNECTED TO A
CHIMNEY SERVING A SEPARATE SOLID FUEL
BURNING APPLIANCE.
This appliance is designed to attach to a 100mm
diameter type B-Vent or approved flexi-liner or listed
gas fuel type flue liner running the full length of the
chimney. A minimum flue height of 3.6m is
recommended and it maybe necessary to extend
beyond this. B-Vent flue must be supported by a flue
support - supplied by flue manufacturer. The Masport
Insert incorporates its own internal draft hood, so no
additional external draft hood is required.
Periodically check that the flue is unrestricted and an
adequate draft is present when the unit is in operation.
Install to AG 601, NZS 5261 or local codes.
Fire Installation
1) Remove the top and bottom louvres or grilles.
These lift up and then out. The bottom one has a
centre retaining screw, which must be turned 90°
anticlockwise first. (When refitting, simply press
the screw in to secure the louvre or grille).
2) Slide the fireplace into the recess and adjust the
case position so that it is level and its front top
flange is in line with the face of the fireplace
surround. Where seismic restraint is necessary,
screw the bottom of the case to the base of the
fireplace recess. The base of the fireplace must be
levelled by for example grouting to prevent
vibration from possible fan imbalance.
3) If space above the case for positioning and fixing
the flue is limited, greater access can be provided
by first removing the top louvre or grille by lifting it
upwards and outwards.
4) Then remove the 2 screws holding the top sliding
panel, one is located at each side of the fire. The
top front section of the case can now slide out as
illustrated to increase access.
5) Attach the flue to the flue spigot. The flue spigot of
the appliance will fit inside a standard flue and may
be fastened directly to the flue by sheet metal
screw or a B-Vent, single wall flue connector (not
available from Masport).
Combustion and Ventilation Air
WARNING: This appliance needs fresh air for safe
operation and must be installed with provisions for
adequate combustion and ventilation air available
to the room in which it is to be operating.
Air for combustion is drawn in through the front of the
unit; therefore, this area must be kept clear of any
obstructions.
GAS CONNECTION
GAS CONNECTION WARNING:
Installation must be carried out by a registered installer
who, on completion of the installation, must issue a
certificate of compliance, in accordance with national
and/or local codes. If a certificate of compliance is not
issued then the Masport warranty may be void..
The gas connections are a 3/8” flare for New Zealand
& 1/2" flare for Australia.
When connecting the gas, ensure that the control
valve or pressure regulator is not twisted during this
procedure (such damage is not covered by Masport
warranty).
6) Once the flue is connected, reassemble the fire.
Note:
Final gas connection should be after unit is
in place to avoid damage to line when
pushing the unit into position.

OPTIONAL REMOTE CONTROL
INSTALLATION (EIS Models Only)
Use the Optional Masport Remote Control Kit
approved for this unit. Use of other systems may void
your warranty.
The remote control kit comes with a hand held
transmitter, a receiver and a wall mounting plate.
1) Choose a convenient location on the wall to install
the receiver and the receptacle box (protection
from extreme heat is very important). Run wires
from the appliance to that location. (Do NOT install
the receiver install behind the louvres or grille).
2) Connect the two wires to the terminals at the front
of the control box (behind the bottom louvre or
grille) in place of the jumper wire already installed
there. (Refer to instructions supplied with the
remote control for detailed installation instructions)

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Before operating this appliance, proceed through the
following checklist.
1) Read and understand these instructions before
operating this appliance.
2) Check to see that all wiring is correct and enclosed
to prevent possible shock.
3) Check to ensure there are no gas leaks.
4) Never operate the appliance with the glass
removed.
Masport Inbuilt Gas Fireplace
5) Verify that the flue and the flue cap are
unobstructed.
6) Verify log placement. If the pilot or ignition
electrodes cannot be seen when lighting the unit the logs or the embers have been incorrectly
positioned.
7) The unit should never be turned off and on again
without a minimum of a 60-second wait.
8) Each time the appliance is lit, condensation will fog
the glass. This condensation is normal and will
disappear in a few minutes as the glass heats up.
DO NOT USE THE HEATER WITH THE GLASS
ASSEMBLY REMOVED.
LIGHTING PROCEDURE
Piccolo
IMPORTANT: The gas control knob cannot be
turned from "PILOT" to "OFF" unless it is partially
depressed.
1) If the control knob is in the "OFF" position proceed
to Step 4.
2) Push in gas control knob and turn clockwise to
"OFF". Knob cannot be turned from "PILOT" to
"OFF" unless knob is pushed in. Do not force.
3) Wait five minutes to allow gas that may have
accumulated in the main burner compartment, to
escape. If you do smell gas, follow the instructions
on the front of this manual. If you don't smell gas
continue on to the next step.
4) Push in and turn the gas control counter clockwise
to "IGN".
5) The piezo igniter will click as a spark jumps across
the terminals at the pilot. It may be necessary to
repeat this several times before the pilot ignites if
there is air in the pilot light pipeline. The pilot is
located at the right, inside the firebox behind the
front log. When the pilot lights continue to hold the
control knob in for approximately 15 seconds, then
release it. The pilot flame should continue to burn.
If the pilot does not remain lit, repeat this
operation, allowing a longer period before
releasing the gas control knob.
6) With the pilot flame established, turn the gas
control knob fully anticlockwise to ignite the burner.
The flame height can then be adjusted as required
by turning the knob clockwise.
- 13 -
EIS Models
Assuming that there is a gas supply to the valve and
that the mains power is switched ON, the operating
sequence is as follows:1) The on/off switch on the LH side of the fascia is
switched to the “ON” position. This is the top
switch.
2) If the thermostat loop is in place across the
thermostat terminals, a 24 V signal will go to the
relay, which closes and sends a mains signal to the
igniter module to initiate the ignition sequence.
3) About 3 seconds after the ignition module is
activated, there will be a continuous spark at the
ignition electrodes.
4) If there is no spark, the On/Off switch needs to be
cycled to reset the ignition module at which time it
will repeat the ignition cycle.
5) If the spark stops before the burner ignites, again
the On/Off switch needs to be cycled to reset the
ignition module at which time it will repeat the
ignition cycle. Sometimes, with a new installation, it
will take several attempts to give sufficient time to
bleed air out of the pipeline.
2) Use the bottom rocker switch, if desired to turn off
the fan immediately. If not manually switched off
the fan will automatically turn off once the
appliance has cooled to a point where no more
useful heat can be produced.
3) Disconnect all electric power and gas to the
appliance if service is to be performed.
THE FIRST FEW FIRES
The first few fires in your stove are part of the curing
process. When first operated, the unit will release an
odour and the flames will appear orange caused by the
curing of the paint, the burning off of the starch in the
gas logs and the oils on the metal.
After several fires the starch in the logs may show as a
deposit inside the glass. If this film is not removed it
will bake on and may become very difficult to remove.
When the glass is cold, remove it (see page 11) and
clean the inside with a non-abrasive cleaner.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE GLASS WHILE
IT IS HOT. NEVER OPERATE THE UNIT WITH THE
GLASS REMOVED.
6) As soon as the burner lights, the flame sensor will
signal the high-tension spark to stop.
FAN OPERATION
7) The flame height can be controlled with the middle
rocker switch on the LH side of the fascia. Note that
flame size only changes between high and low.
Note: It is possible to use the fire with the fan not going
although for better air circulation and heat discharge
area temperature reduction using the fan is
recommended.
8) While the fan speed can be pre-selected at this
time, using the lower rocker switch, the fan will not
start until the firebox has reached a reasonable
working temperature.
The fan will
start
automatically once this has been attained. (Usually
about 10 minutes, depending on the flame height).
SHUTDOWN PROCEDURE
Piccolo
1) Push the knob in momentarily and rotate clockwise
to the pilot position. To extinguish the pilot, push
the knob in and turn clockwise to the “OFF”
position. Do not force.
2) Disconnect all electric power and gas to the
appliance if service is to be performed.
EIS
1) Use the top rocker switch to turn off the main
burner.
Masport Inbuilt Gas Fireplace
Piccolo
The fan operates by using the rocker switch on the lefthand side of the fascia. To adjust the desired fan
speed, operate the rocker switch. The fan has 2
speeds, a high speed for more rapid air movement and
a low speed. The fan should not be used until the fire is
up to operating temperature, approximately 10mins.
The fan can be left running after the fire has been shut
down until it is circulating no more useful heat.
EIS Models
The fan operates by using the bottom of the 3 rocker
switches on the left-hand side of the fascia. To adjust
the desired fan speed, operate the rocker switch. The
fan has 2 speeds, a high speed for more rapid air
movement and a low speed.
NOTE: EIS models are fitted with a thermodisc fan
control. This means the fan will operate only when the
heater is up to operating temperature (approximately
10 minutes from start on high burn) and will stop
automatically once the heater has cooled down. This
is particularly useful when a thermostat is fitted, as the
fan will not be running unnecessarily. Because the
- 14 -
thermodisc is fitted, it is not necessary to operate the
switch on the fascia. It can be kept permanently on at
the desired speed setting. The fascia switch overrides
the thermodisc if it is set in the central “off” position.
NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS OF
GAS APPLIANCES
It is possible that you will hear some sounds from your
gas appliance. This is perfectly normal due to the fact
that there are various gauges and types of steel used
within your appliance. Listed below are some
examples,
all are normal operating sounds and these should
not be considered as defects in your appliance.
Fan:
Masport gas appliances use high tech blowers to push
heated air further into the room. It is not unusual for
the fan to make a "whirring" sound when ON. This
sound will increase or decrease in volume depending
on the speed setting of your fan.
Burner Tray:
The burner tray is positioned directly under the burner
and logs and is made of a different gauge material
from the rest of the firebox and body. Therefore, the
varying thicknesses of steel will expand and contract at
slightly different rates, which can cause "ticking" and
"cracking" sounds. You should also be aware that as
there are temperature changes within the unit these
sounds would likely re-occur, again, this is normal for
steel fireboxes.
Pilot Flame (Piccolo Only):
While the pilot flame is on it can make a very slight
"whisper" sound.
2) Clean the appliance, glass and louvres with a
damp cloth only when it is cold. Never use an
abrasive cleaner. The gold louvres will be
scratched if abrasives are used to clean them.
The heater is finished in a heat resistant paint and
should only be refinished with heat resistant paint
(not with wall paint).
3) Keep the area near the appliance clear and free
from combustible materials, petrol and other
flammable vapours and liquids.
WARNING: CHILDREN AND ADULTS SHOULD
BE ALERTED TO THE HAZARDS OF HIGH
SURFACE TEMPERATURE AND SHOULD
STAY AWAY TO AVOID BURNS OR CLOTHING
IGNITION. YOUNG CHILDREN SHOULD BE
CAREFULLY SUPERVISED WHEN THEY ARE
IN THE SAME ROOM AS THE APPLIANCE.
CAUTION: ANY SAFETY SCREEN OR GUARD
REMOVED FOR SERVICING AN APPLIANCE
MUST BE REPLACED PRIOR TO OPERATING
THE APPLIANCE. (Australia only)
CLOTHING
OR
OTHER
FLAMMABLE
MATERIAL SHOULD NOT BE PLACED ON OR
NEAR THE APPLIANCE.
4) Periodically check the pilot flames (Piccolo only),
there should be three strong flames (approx. 19
mm long) - 1 flame to the rear burner, 1 to the
ignition electrode and 1 to the thermocouple.
If you have an incorrect flame pattern, contact your
Masport dealer.
SERVICING INSTRUCTIONS
Gas Control Valve:
As the gas control valve turns ON and OFF, a dull
clicking sound may be audible, this is normal operation
of a gas regulator or valve.
Unit Body/Firebox:
Different types and thicknesses of steel will expand
and contract at different rates resulting in some
"cracking" and "ticking" sounds being heard throughout
the cycling process.
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
INSTRUCTIONS
1) Keep the burner and control compartment clean by
brushing and vacuuming at least once a year.
Always turn the gas valve to OFF before cleaning.
When cleaning the logs, use a clean soft
paintbrush, as the logs are fragile and easily
damaged.
Masport Inbuilt Gas Fireplace
(Routine maintenance schedule)
Servicing must be carried out only by authorised
personnel.
Your Masport heater must be checked yearly by an
authorised Technician. This periodic maintenance
should cover the following points:1) Keep the burner and control compartment and any
air entry points clean by brushing and vacuuming.
Always turn the gas valve to OFF before cleaning.
When cleaning the logs, use a clean soft
paintbrush, as the logs are fragile and easily
damaged.
2) Make a periodic check of burner for proper log
position and condition. Visually check the flame
pattern of the burner periodically, making sure the
flames are steady, not lifting or floating.
3) The appliance and flue system must be inspected
before use and thereafter annually to ensure that
the flow of combustion and ventilation air is not
- 15 -
obstructed. During the annual service call, the
burner should be removed from the burner tray
and cleaned. Replace the embers but do not block
the air slots.
4) Clean the fan of any lint or foreign matter.
5) After the above steps, check the pilot flames
(Piccolo only), there should be three strong flames
approx. 19 mm long - 1 flame to the rear burner, 1
to the ignition electrode and 1 to the thermocouple.
6) Check the operation of the thermostat (if fitted) by
turning its control point above and below ambient
room temperature and checking the response of
the fire.
Other points to be checked after completing the
above:Thermocouple generation
Gas consumption rate
Carbon dioxide content in the combustion products
Flue operation.
Log Replacement
The unit should never be used with broken logs. Turn
off the gas valve and allow the unit to cool before
removing the glass to carefully remove the logs. The
pilot light generates enough heat to burn someone. If
for any reason a log should need replacement, you
must use the proper replacement log. The position of
these logs must be as shown in the diagram on page
12.
Note: Improper positioning of logs may create
carbon build-up and will alter the unit’s
performance. Malfunctioning due to improper log
placement is not covered under warranty.
Your Masport stove is supplied with high temperature,
5 mm Neoceram ceramic glass that will withstand the
highest heat that your unit will produce. In the event
that you break your glass by impact, purchase your
replacement from an authorised Masport dealer only,
and follow our step-by-step instructions for
replacement.
Bay Glass Removal
1) Remove the window from the unit (refer to removal
instructions on page 10) and place on a soft
surface to prevent scratching.
2) Remove the nuts holding the glass retainers in
place.
3) Remove the glass retainers.
4) Replace the glass.
5) Reverse the previous steps, replace the retainers
and fasten with the nuts but do not over tighten, as
this can break the glass.
6) Refit the window to the fire and check the seal.
Flush Glass Replacement
Remove the glass by following the instructions on page
11. Fit the new glass, replacing the gaskets if
necessary.
Fan Maintenance
If your fan requires maintenance or replacement,
access to the fan is through the plate on the rear wall
of the firebox.
Note:
Glass Gasket
The unit MUST NOT be operated without
the fan access panel securely in place.
If the glass gasket requires replacement use 25mm flat
glass gasket for the Flush Front, Masport part number
786774 or 10mm flat glass tape for the curved window
Masport part number 790229.
To remove fan:
Gold-Plated Trim
2) Unplug or disconnect the power source to the fire.
The 24-carat gold plated finish on the trim requires
little maintenance, needing only be cleaned with a
damp cloth. DO NOT use abrasive materials or
chemical cleaners, as they will harm the finish and
void the warranty. Clean any fingerprints off before
turning the unit on. If the top louvres start to
discolour, check the glass gasket seal and replace
if necessary.
3) Remove glass front (see page 11).
Glass Replacement
1) Turn the unit and/or pilot off and allow it to cool to
room temperature.

need to be held to avoid twisting the pipe work.
Remove the main injector and discard.
7) Reinstall the new LP injector marked “1.7” and
tighten. Again avoid twisting the pipe work.
8) Reinstall the burner. Ensure that the aeration
shutter on the burner is fully open.
The outside of the fascia and glass should need no
more than an occasional wipe with a damp cloth to
remove any dust which may have settled.
All gas appliances incorporating a live fuel effect and
designed to operate with luminous flames may exhibit
carbon deposition, particularly if the combustion air
entry slots under the heater are obstructed or the
aeration air inlets are clogged with lint. Any other
lifting, floating or lighting back should be checked by a
recognised Masport gas fire Technician.
After a period of time the inside of the glass may
require cleaning. To do this, carefully remove the glass
(See Glass Removal and Assembly, page 11), and
clean the inside surface with a non-abrasive cloth and
a non-scratching type household cleaning liquid.
9) Reverse steps 4), 3) & 2).
10) Check for gas leaks.
11) Reset high and low pressures refer to page 12.
Replace the parts as detailed on page 11, keeping
