SAFETY NOTICE:
IF THIS STOVE IS NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED, A HOUSE FIRE MAY RESULT. FOR YOUR
SAFETY, FOLLOW THE INSTALLATION DIRECTIONS. CONTACT LOCAL BUILDING OR FIRE
OFFICIALS FOR RESTRICTIONS AND INSPECTIONS IN YOUR AREA.
SECTION I: FLUE SYSTEM
This stove is designed to install into a masonry fireplace. The minimum opening is 28” wide x
24” high x 16” deep and you must have at least fourteen inches (14”) of hearth extending from the
fireplace face.
Flue Size Needed:
The proper flue size is normally determined by the inside diameter of the opening on the unit,
which in this case is six inches (6”). Therefore, the connector pipe should be the same size or larger
and never less in diameter than the opening on the stove. The area of the chimney liner in square
inches must also be equal to or larger than the area of the opening on the stove. If the area of the flue
is larger than the area of the opening on the stove, it should never be more than three (3) times larger.
SECTION II: INSTALLATION INTO A MASONRY FIREPLACE
A. Preparation
1. Measure your hearth to ensure it is large enough to accept the unit. Your hearth should be at least
2.
3.
4.
5.
thirty-six inches (36”) wide and fourteen inches (14”) from the face of the fireplace to the edge of
the hearth.
Inspect your hearth to be sure it is constructed of a noncombustible material such as brick or
stone. Do not install this stove on a hearth that is constructed of wood framework that is covered
by brick or stone and do not install this unit in a zero (0) clearance fireplace. The manufacturer will
not be held responsible for an accident resulting from this stove being installed on a hearth
constructed of a combustible material.
Inspect your fireplace to ensure it is in proper working order and free of any obstructions.
Prior to installation, remove the existing damper or wire it to fasten it open.
Place the insert on the hearth and slide about one-third (1/3) of it into the opening.
B. Venting Your Insert
Direct Connect
When this unit is direct connected it will require six inch (6”) diameter 24 gauge pipe from the stove
through the damper opening. (NOTE: The chimney connector must be attached to the appliance
with a minimum of three (3) screws, and 3 screws should be used to attach each adjoining
section.) This will make it necessary to block off the open area on both sides of the pipe that passes
through the damper opening, which can be done with sheet metal or by packing flame retardant
fiberglass insulation in the open areas (no paper or combustibles). You must be sure the draft from
the chimney is being pulled through the stove, and not around the connector pipe. (See Illustration 3
and “Backplate Instructions”). We highly recommend you have this done by a professional. You
should contact your local authorities to be sure you are following all codes.

SECTION III: IMPORTANT OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
“Draft” is the force that moves air from the appliance up through the chimney. The amount of draft
in your chimney depends on the length of the chimney, local geography, nearby obstructions, and
other factors. Too much draft may cause excessive temperatures in the appliance. An uncontrolled
burn or a glowing red part or chimney connector can indicate excessive draft. Inadequate draft may
cause back puffing into the room and “plugging” of the chimney and/or cause the appliance to leak
smoke into the room through appliance and connections.
Today’s solid fuel appliances are much more efficient than in the past. The units are designed to
give you controlled combustion, as well as maximum heat transfer, using less fuel to do so.
The design of your new appliance is such that the exhaust “smoke” is now at lower temperatures
than in the past, therefore requiring proper chimney size to give adequate draft. If your chimney is too
large, the heating appliance will have a difficult time to raise the “chimney flue” temperature to give
adequate draft, therefore causing a smoke back up, poor burn, or both.
Should you experience such problems, call in a local chimney expert.
With the door closed, the rate of burning is regulated by the amount of air allowed to enter the unit
through the air control. With experience, you will be able to set the control for heat and burning time
desired.
5
Attempts to achieve higher output rates that exceed heater design specifications can result in
permanent damage to the heater. The recommended wood load is level with the top of the firebricks.
Overloading may prevent sufficient air entering the heater to properly fuel the fire.
Do not tamper with the combustion air control beyond the normal adjustment capacity.
Operate this heater only with the door closed.
ALWAYS PROVIDE A SOURCE OF FRESH AIR INTO THE ROOM WHERE THE UNIT IS
INSTALLED. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN AIR STARVATION OF OTHER FUEL
BURNING APPLIANCES AND THE POSSIBLE DEVELOPMENT OF HAZARDOUS
CONDITIONS.
THIS HEATER IS EXTREMELY HOT WHILE IN OPERATION. SERIOUS BURNS CAN RESULT
FROM CONTACT. CAUTION SHOULD BE OBSERVED, ESPECIALLY WHEN CHILDREN ARE
PRESENT.
BLOWER ASSEMBLY: MODEL AC-13BA
115 VOLTS, 60 Hz, 0.83 AMPS, 3060 RPM
DANGER: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK. DISCONNECT POWER BEFORE SERVICING.
BLOWER MOTOR OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS:
This unit is set up with a variable speed blower motor. The fan speed should be run on “Low”
when the unit is operating at lower burn settings, and set to “High” for high burns. The blower will
move air under, around and exit over the top of the front of the stove.
BLOWER INSTALLATION:
To install the blower, simply place it under the ash lip in the front of the stove. The blower should
be removed and cleaned at least once per year; you can use a vacuum cleaner to remove any loose
dust build-up, but DO NOT disassemble the blower. The blower should not require any oil.
When routing power cord, be sure that the cord does not come into contact with any hot surface.
SECTION IV: Optional Brass Trim
The AC-105 trim kit covers the two front edges of the stove and the three edges of the cover plate.
The stove lip trim simply snaps over the edges of the stove. There are two angle clips that hold the
three pieces of cover plate trim together – connect the three edges together and slide from the top
down over the cover plate edges. The top piece of trim must be forced out slightly so it will connect
with the top edge of the plate.

SECTION V: FLOOR PROTECTION
Hearth Extension
The firebox on your insert will extend out eight inches (8”) from the face of the fireplace, so you will
need at least sixteen inches (16”) in front of the door. If you do not have this, it will require you to
place an approved floor protector in front of the stove (such as a hearth extender shield).
Alternate Floor Protection:
An easy means of determining if a proposed alternate floor protector meets requirements is to
follow this procedure:
1) Convert specification to R-value:
i R-value is given – no conversion is needed
ii k-factor is given with a required thickness (T) in inches: R = 1/k x T
iii C-factor is given: R = 1/C
2) Determine the R-value of the proposed alternate floor protector:
i Use the correct formula given in step 1 (above) to convert values not expressed as “R.”
ii For multiple layers, add R-values of each layer to determine overall R-value.
3) If the overall R-value of the system is greater than the R-value of the specified floor protector,
the alternate is acceptable.
EXAMPLE:
The specified floor protector should be ¾” thick material with a k-factor of 0.84. The proposed
alternate is 4” brick with a C-factor of 1.25 over 1/8” mineral board with a k-factor of 0.29.
Step (a): Use formula above to convert specification to R-value.
R = 1/k x T = 1/0.84 x .75 = 0.893
Step (b): Calculate R of proposed system.
4” brick of C = 1.25, therefore R brick = 1/C =1/1.25 = 0.80
1/8” mineral board of k = 0.29, therefore Rmin.bd. = 1/0.29 x 0.125 = 0.431
Total R = Rbrick + Rmineral board = 0.8 + 0.431 = 1.231
Step (c): Compare proposed system of R of 1.231 to specified R of 0.893.
Since proposed system R is greater than required, the system is acceptable.

BACKPLATE INFORMATION:
Your backplate is a three (3) section plate that needs to be assembled before installation on
your insert unit. A roll of insulation is also included, which needs to be installed around the
outside perimeter of the plate (even with the “bend line”), and at the two connection joints to
insure a proper seal between the plate and the hearth.

SECTION VI: NOTES ON PLACEMENT
The first challenge you may encounter is getting your stove into your home -- all of our stove
products are well constructed, which makes them rather heavy. Three to four adults can normally
handle a unit, but we still recommend using a handcart. Never attempt to handle a heating product
alone!!! The door and brick can be temporarily removed to lighten the unit (refer to Brick Layout).
After the unit is placed into position, install the spring handles and attach any optional equipment.
SECTION VII: OPERATION
Do not use a grate or elevate the fire. Build the wood fire directly on the bricks. When the
stove is used for the first time, solvents in the paint will smoke off as the stove “cures.”
WOOD –
This heater is designed to burn natural wood only. Higher efficiency and lower emissions
generally result when burning air-dried seasoned hardwood, as compared to softwood or to green
or freshly-cut hardwood.
Use only dry, seasoned wood. Green wood, besides burning at only 60 percent of the fuel
value of dry wood, deposits creosote on the inside of the stove and along the chimney. This can
cause extreme danger of chimney fire. To be called “seasoned,” wood must be dried for a
year. Regardless of whether the wood is green or seasoned, it should be stored in a ventilated,
sheltered area to allow proper drying during the year. Wood should be stored beyond
recommended clearances from combustibles.
DO NOT BURN:
Treated Wood, Garbage, Solvents, Trash, Cardboard, Colored Paper or Coal.
FIRST FIRE –
•
•
•
•
•
Remember to ventilate well.
Allow the stove to cure before burning for long periods of time at high temperatures.
Flat spots on the painted surface are normal.
Shiny spots on the painted surface (before burning) are normal.
Call Technical support at (800) 245-6489 if you have any questions.
SECTION VIII: BUILDING A FIRE
1. Open the air inlet control fully.
2. Place a small amount of crumpled paper in the stove.
3. Cover the paper with a generous amount of kindling in a “teepee” shape, and a few small
pieces of wood.
4. Ignite this fuel and close the door most of the way (leave it open slightly).
5. Add larger pieces of wood as the fire progresses, being careful not to overload. Do not fill the
firebox beyond the firebrick area. A coal bed of (ideally) 1” to 2” should be established to
achieve optimum performance.
10
6. This unit is designed to function most effectively when air is allowed to circulate to all areas of
the firebox. A good way of achieving this is to rake a small (1” to 2” wide) “trough” in the
center of the coal bed, from front to back, prior to loading the fuel.
7. Once fuel has been loaded, close the door and fully open the air inlet control, until the fire is
well established (approximately 20 minutes), being careful not to over-fire.
8. Readjust the air inlet control to the desired burn rate. If excessive smoke fills the firebox, open
the air inlet control slightly, until flames resume and the wood is sufficiently ignited. Basically,
Closed = “Low;” ½ Way Open = “Medium;” and Fully Open = “High.”
9. When refueling, adjust the air control to the fully open position. When the fire brightens,
open the door VERY slowly and carefully. This will prevent gases from igniting and causing
smoke and flame spillage.
10. At this point you may add fuel, being careful not to overload.
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.

SECTION IX: GLASS CARE
REPLACE GLASS ONLY WITH HIGH-TEMPERATURE ROBAX PYROCERAM OF THE
PROPER SIZE AND THICKNESS.
The following use and safety tips should be observed:
1. Inspect the glass regularly for cracks or breaks. If you detect a crack or a break, extinguish
the fire immediately, and contact your dealer or Technical support at (800) 245-6489 for
replacement (or log on to www.englanderstoves.com ).
2. Do not slam the door or otherwise impact the glass. When closing doors, make sure that logs
or other objects do not protrude and impact the glass.
11
3. Do not clean the glass with materials which may scratch (or otherwise damage) the glass.
While surface scratches are acceptable, deeper scratches on the glass can develop into
cracks or breaks.
4. Never attempt to clean the glass while the unit is hot. If the deposit is not very heavy, normal
glass cleaners are adequate with a plain, non-abrasive scouring pad. Heavier deposits may
be removed with the use of an oven cleaner.
5. NEVER put substances that can ignite explosively inside the unit, since even small explosions
in confined areas can “blow out” the glass.
6. This unit has an airwash system, designed to reduce deposits on the glass.
SECTION X: GASKET REPLACEMENT
After extensive use, the sealing material which provides glass and door seal may need to be replaced
if it does not sustain its resilience. Inspect the glass and door seal periodically to ensure proper seal.
If the gaskets become frayed or worn, replace immediately. Contact your dealer or Technical support
at (800) 245-6489 for approved replacement parts.
The following steps should be followed for replacement of the glass gasket:
1. Ensure that the appliance is not in operation, and is thoroughly cooled.
2. Remove the screws and glass clips.
3. Lift glass out from glass clips.
4. Remove the old gasket, and clean the glass.
5. Replace the new gasket, starting at the bottom of the glass and working along the edges. Be
sure to center the gasket channel on the glass.
6. Trim the gasket to length and butt the ends together.
7. Replace the glass in the door, being sure not to over-tighten the screw and clip.
The following steps should be followed for replacement of the door gasket:
1. Ensure the appliance is not in operation and is thoroughly cooled.
2. Remove the old door gasket and clean the gasket channel.
3. Using an approved high-temperature gasket cement, apply a thin coat in the bottom of the
channel.
4. Starting at the hinge side of the door, work into the channel around the door unit, trim to length
and butt the ends together.
5. Close the door and allow three to four hours for the cement to set before restarting any fire.

SECTION XI: FIBER BOARD: CARE & MAINTENANCE
THIS WOOD HEATER UTILIZES NEW TECHNOLOGY, WHICH INCLUDES A CERAMIC FIBER
BOARD THAT IS LOCATED IN THE FIREBOX, AND RESTS ON TOP OF THREE (3) STAINLESS
STEEL TUBES.
DO NOT REMOVE THIS CERAMIC FIBER BOARD!!!
IT IS A NECESSARY COMPONENT OF THE FIREBOX.
ALSO PLEASE NOTE: THE CERAMIC FIBER BOARD MAY BECOME LOOSE DURING INITIAL
SHIPPING. BE SURE IT IS LYING FLAT, ON TOP OF THE THREE STAINLESS STEEL TUBES,
AND PUSHED ALL THE WAY TO THE BACK OF THE UNIT, WITH NO GAPS BETWEEN IT AND
THE BACK WALL.
Call (800) 245-6489 if questions.
MAINTENACE: This unit is equipped with a ceramic Fiber Board ceiling baffle. After extensive use,
the board should be removed and cleaned.
The following steps should be followed for cleaning or replacement:
1. Ensure the appliance is not in operation and is completely cooled down.
2. There is one screw in each stainless steel tube holder, located in the fire box ceiling. Remove
the screws from the front and middle tube holders.
3. Shift the tube to the right, so that one end comes completely out of the socket. Drop the end
down and pull it out by pulling it back to the left.
4. Drop the board down and push the left corner to the top left. Bring the right corner down to the
bottom right of your door opening, and pull the right side out first.
5. Vacuum the board off and blow the carbon out of the tubes, if there is any build-up.
6. Re-install the board and tubes, reversing the same method they were removed.
SECTION XII: CREOSOTE
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors. These combine with moisture
to form creosote. Creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slow-burning fire
– as a result, creosote residue accumulates on the lining of the flue. If ignited, this creosote makes an
extremely hot fire. The chimney should be inspected on a regular basis during the heating season, to
determine if a creosote build-up has accumulated. If it has, the creosote should be removed to
reduce the risk of chimney fire.
WARNING: THINGS TO REMEMBER IN CASE OF A CHIMNEY FIRE:
1. CLOSE DRAFT CONTROL
2. CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT
14
WAYS TO PREVENT AND KEEP UNIT FREE OF CREOSOTE
1. Burn with the air control fully open for several minutes at numerous intervals throughout each
day during the heating season, being careful not to over-fire the unit. This should remove the
slight film of creosote that accumulates during low burn periods.
2. Burn the stove with the draft control fully open for approximately 20-30 minutes every time you
apply fresh wood. This allows wood to achieve the charcoal stage faster, and burns wood
vapors which might otherwise be deposited within the system.
3. BURN ONLY SEASONED WOOD. Avoid burning wet or green wood. Seasoned wood is
wood that has been dried for at least one year.
4. A small, hot fire is preferable to a large, smoldering one that can deposit creosote within the
system.
5. Establish a routine for fuel, wood burner and firing technique. Check daily for creosote build-
up until experience shows you how often you need to clean to be safe. Keep in mind that the
hotter the fire, the less creosote is deposited, and weekly cleanings may be necessary in
milder weather, although monthly cleanings may be enough in the coldest months. Contact
your local authority for information on how to handle a chimney fire, and have a clearlyunderstood plan to handle a chimney fire.
Ash Removal and Disposal
Regularly inspect the ash build-up in your stove and remove as necessary. Ashes can be
removed from the unit by shoveling them off the firebrick. Never remove red-hot ashes from the
appliance; allow ashes to cool before removing. Ashes should be placed in a metal container with an
airtight lid. Pending final disposal, the ashes should be placed on a non-combustible surface or on the
ground, completely away from all combustible materials. The ashes should be retained in the closed
container until all cinders have thoroughly cooled. It is essential with a masonry system that your flue
be checked for creosote at least once per month.
IMPORTANT: HELPFUL HINTS AND TIPS WORTH REVIEWING
1. What is the correct way to start a fire?
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
You will need small pieces of dry wood (kindling) and paper. Use only newspaper or paper
that has not been coated or that has had materials glued or applied to it. Never use coated
or colored paper (such as advertising flyers).
Open the door of the wood stove.
Crumple several pieces of paper, and place them in the center of the firebox, directly on
the firebricks of the stove. Never use a grate to elevate the fire.
Place small pieces of dry wood (kindling) over the paper in the form of a “teepee.” This
allows for good air circulation, which is important for good combustion.
Light the crumpled paper in two or three different locations. NOTE: It is important to heat
the air in the stovepipe for draft to begin.
Fully open the air control of the wood stove, and close the door until it is just slightly open,
allowing for air to be introduced into the firebox. Never leave the door fully open, as sparks
from the kindling may occur, causing injury. As the fire begins to burn the kindling, some
additional kindling may be needed to sustain the fire. DO NOT add more paper after the
fire has started.
15
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Once the kindling has begun to burn, start adding some small pieces of seasoned, dry
firewood. NOTE: Adding large pieces at the early stages will only serve to smother the
fire. Continue adding small pieces of seasoned, dry firewood, keeping the door slightly
open until each piece starts to ignite. Remember to always open the door slowly when
placing wood into the fire.
Once the wood has started to ignite and the smoke has reduced, close the stove door fully.
(Reduction of smoke is a good indication that the draft in the chimney has begun, and
good combustion is now possible.) Larger pieces of seasoned, dry firewood can now be
added when there is sufficient space in the firebox. Adjust the air control setting to your
desired setting.
NOTE: The lower the air control setting, the longer the burn time of the firewood.
2. What type of wood is best to use as firewood?
ƒ
Dry, seasoned hardwood should be used. Avoid green, unseasoned wood. Green wood,
besides burning at only 60% of the fuel value of dry seasoned wood, will deposit creosote
on the inside of the stove and along to inside of the chimney.
3. What does dry, seasoned wood mean, and what is considered to be hardwood?
ƒ
Wood that has been dried for a period of one year in a well-ventilated and sheltered area is
considered dry, seasoned wood. Hardwoods generally come from slow-growth trees, such
as Oak or Fir. Softwoods generally come from fast-growth trees, such as Pine or Spruce.
4. Will following the steps listed above result in a perfect fire every time?
ƒ
A good answer would be “most of the time.” There are many variables that can affect your
rate of success when starting a fire, and experience will teach you how to deal with the
variables. This section of the manual will cover some of the variables that can affect a fire,
and time and patience will contribute to your ability to start a good fire consistently.
5. Why can’t I get the fire lit?
ƒ
Damp or wet wood and poor draft are the main reasons for poor results when starting a
fire. Remember to always use dry, seasoned wood for your fire. Even wood that has been
dried (seasoned) for a long period of time will be difficult to light if it has gotten wet.
6. Why is there always a large quantity of thick black smoke in the firebox?
ƒ
A large quantity of thick black smoke in the firebox is a possible indication that you have
poor draft.
7. Is it normal for soot to cover the glass at the beginning of a fire?
ƒ
This stove has been built with an air wash system that will help keep the glass clear when
the firebox has reached a good operating temperature, and also has a good draft. Cold
firebox temperature and poor draft cause soot to form on the glass. Once the firebox
temperature and the draft increase, the soot should burn off.
8. What is “draft?”
ƒ
Draft is the ability of the chimney to exhaust draw by-products produced during the normal
process of combustion.
16
9. What can cause a poor draft?
There are several common factors that can contribute to poor draft:
A. Atmospheric Pressure and Air Supply
Atmospheric pressure affecting the draft from a chimney can be outside the home,
inside the home, or both. Outside the home, a high-pressure (clear and cool) day
generally creates a better draft in the chimney than a low-pressure (overcast and damp)
day. Inside the home, household appliances, such as forced-air furnaces or clothes
dryers, compete for air, often resulting in inadequate amounts of air available to fuel a fire
and creating a condition known as negative pressure. Extreme conditions of negative
pressure can cause the combustion by-products to be drawn from the chimney and into the
house. This condition is commonly known as “down drafting.”
There are several factors that can affect the amount of air available in the home.
Increased amounts of insulation, vinyl windows, extra caulking in various places and door
seals can all keep heat in, but may also make a home too airtight. If you are in doubt as to
whether or not there is sufficient air in your home for your stove, refrain from using those
appliances known to consume air when possible, or open a door or a window to allow
some air to enter the home.
B. Environmental Conditions
High trees, a low-lying house location (such as in a valley), tall buildings or structures
surrounding your house and even windy conditions can cause pool draft or down drafting.
C. Cold Chimney Temperature
Avoid cold chimney temperatures by burning a hot fire for the first fifteen to forty minutes
after building a fire, being careful not to over-fire. If any part of the chimney or parts of the
stove start to glow, you are over-firing the stove. Where possible, install a temperature
gauge on the chimney so temperature drops can be seen.
D. Chimney Installation and Maintenance
Avoid using too many elbows or long horizontal runs. If in doubt, contact a chimney
expert and/or chimney manufacturer for help. Clean your chimney, rain cap(s) and
especially the spark arrester regularly, in order to prevent creosote build-up – which can
significantly reduce chimney draw and possibly create a chimney fire.
10. Should I close or open the air control fully when shutting down the stove?
ƒ
When shutting down the stove, fully open the air control. This will allow chimney
temperatures to remain as high as possible for as long as possible. Remember, cold
chimney temperatures create creosote.
