SAFETY NOTES
FOR SAFE OPERATION – THIS MANUAL MUST BE USED FOR INSTALLATION
OF STOVE UNIT AND RETAINED BY THE OWNER FOR OPERATION AND
MAINTENANCE INFORMATION.
PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS MANUAL AND SAFETY NOTES. The Country
Flame LR-01 Pellet Stove is different from conventional wood burning appliances. It is
very important that you read and understand all of the instructions before installing and
using your Pellet Stove. Follow the procedures and maintenance instructions outlined in
this manual exactly. Failure to follow instructions may result in property damage, bodily
injury, or even death. It is recommended that you have your unit installed by your
authorized Country Flame dealer or at least have them inspect your installation.
1. Because Country Flame has no control over the installation of your unit, Country
Flame grants no warranty, implied or written, for the installation or maintenance of
your unit and assumes no responsibility for any consequential damage.
2. Fill out the warranty card included with your unit. Send the return portion of the
warranty card to Country Flame. Please retain the other portion with this manual.
3. This heater will not operate using natural draft or without a power source for the
blowers and fuel feeding system.
4. Never attempt to repair any part of the unit unless following instructions in this
manual. Installation and repair should be done by a qualified service technician.
Any parts removed for servicing must be replaced prior to operation.
5. Any modifications to the unit, unless authorized by Country Flame, could be
dangerous and void the warranty of the unit.
6. This unit must be connected to a grounded standard 110-volt 60hz electrical outlet.
NEVER use an adapter cord or cut or remove the grounding prong from the power
cord plug.
7. ALWAYS wait until the unit is cooled and disconnect power before performing
any maintenance or cleaning procedures.
8. NEVER place combustible objects on or near your heater.
9. NEVER allow children near heater during operation, and do not allow anyone to
operate the unit who is unfamiliar with these instructions.
10. Children and adults should be alerted to the hazards of high surface temperature and
should stay away to avoid burns or clothing ignition.
11. Young children should be carefully supervised when they are in the same room as
the heater.
Version 1.0c
4
12. NEVER connect this unit to a chimney flue serving another appliance.
13. ALWAYS follow the lighting instructions in this manual; short cuts of any kind can
be dangerous.
14. Check your local building codes and consult your insurance company before
installing your unit.
15. Due to high temperatures, the pellet stove should be located out of traffic and away
from furniture and draperies.
16. Clothing or other flammable material should not be placed on or near the room
heater.
17. When disposing of ash accumulations from your unit, always place them in a metal
container with a tight fitting lid. The closed container must be placed on a noncombustible surface well away from all combustible materials, pending final
disposal. The ashes should be retained in the closed container until all cinders have
thoroughly cooled.
18. Any safety screen or guard removed for servicing a room heater must be replaced
prior to operating the room heater.
19. Your unit is designed and approved for burning of pelletized biomass fuel, which
meets or exceeds APFI standards only. Burning of solid fuel in other than pellet
form is not permitted. Failure to comply with this restriction will void all
warranties and the safety listing of the unit. Poor quality fuel will directly (and
adversely) affect efficiency and cleanliness of your unit’s operation. Your Country
Flame dealer can help you make the proper fuel choice for your area.
20. NEVER use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid or
similar liquids to start or “freshen up” fire in this heater. Do not store or use
gasoline or other flammable vapors and liquids in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
21. INSTALL a smoke detector within the proximity of your pellet stove.
22. NEVER put foreign objects in the hopper. NEVER burn trash or unapproved
material in your LR-01.
23. NEVER block free airflow through open vents.
24. The exhaust system should be checked twice a year (minimum) for any buildup of
soot or creosote.
Version 1.0c
5
25. This unit’s exhaust system works with a negative combustion chamber pressure and
a low positive flue pipe pressure. It is very important that the exhaust system be
properly installed and air tight. The flue pipe joints should be sealed. Use high
temperature RTV (5000F) (2600C) silicone sealant or aluminum flue tape and
secured each joint with at least (3) sheet metal screws. Improperly installed stove
flues are the major cause of home fires.
26. When installed in a mobile home, a pellet stove must be grounded to the steel
chassis of the mobile home and bolted to the floor in compliance with and
according to H.U.D. requirements.
27. SOOT AND FLYASH: The products of combustion will contain small particles of
flyash. The flyash will collect in the exhaust venting system and restrict the flow of
the flue gases. Incomplete combustion, such as occurs during start-up, shut down,
or incorrect operation of the room heater will lead to some soot formation which
will collect in the exhaust venting system. The exhaust venting system should be
inspected at least once every year to determine if cleaning is necessary.

DESCRIPTION
The LR-01 Pellet Stove is designed to sit on a pedestal or legs as a freestanding unit or
can be installed as in insert with the optional shroud and split lid. The basic stove unit
without shroud or pedestal measures 22 3/4” high by 26” wide and 19 3/4” deep.
Centered above the firebox glass front door is a louvered vent through which room
convection air is passed.
The left side of the Little Rascal has a control panel called the integrated “IntelliChoice” control board. The control board includes 5 heat settings, an ON/OFF switch
and lights to indicate the operational state of the board. The control board monitors and
controls all functions of stove operation EXCEPT for air flow. Air flow is controlled
by the operator with a damper. The damper is manually set to obtain optimum burn
based on heat setting and local site conditions.
On the back of the Little Rascal stove is located a 3” tube for installation of outlet
exhaust vent pipe. Also located on the back of the stove is a place to install a 1 ½” inlet
air tube to bring fresh air in from outside the house. DO NOT INSTALL too long a
length of fresh air pipe at 1 ½”. Length and size of fresh air pipe will be determined by
local site specific conditions. The top of the unit lifts up for easy loading of fuel. An
optional two piece lid is available if the Little Rascal is to be used as an fireplace insert.
1. The Country Flame LR-01 is remarkably simple and safe in its operation. From a
relatively small firebox over 40,000 BTU’s per hour can be produced.
2. The fuel (APFI approved) is loaded into the hopper. After the fire has been lit (see
lighting instructions) an angled drive auger delivers fuel, a few pellets at a time,
into the firepot at a controlled rate. The combustion blower delivers directed air
input, creating a vigorous, efficient burn. The hot exhaust gases are drawn through
a 14-tube heat exchanger, which extracts heat from the gases as they are discharged
to the exhaust pipe.
3. A second blower circulates room air through the heat exchanger, pushing warm air
into the room from the tubes located just above the door. The room air blower is
intended to run continuously and can be easily controlled to maintain a uniform
temperature.
4. The Pellet Stove will deliver a constant amount of heat, which can be varied by
setting the fuel control knob. Besides initial lighting of the unit, the only regular
attention needed will be to fill the 55# hopper with fuel; inspection of the firepot for
“clinkering” (see operating instructions) and removal of ash buildup as required.
AIR DAMPER ADJUSTMENTS
Each LR-01 is shipped with an air damper adjustment. The air damper control is
located on the front of the pellet stove below the hearth lip located directly centered on
the front door. As site specific operating conditions require, such as fuel, altitude, and
customer usage preferences require, there will be a requirement to adjust the air damper
Version 1.0c
8
for more or less combustion air to the unit. To vary the air, the air damper control is
slid in (less air) and out (more air.)
1. Conditions that warrant more combustion air are:
Hardwood pellets
Higher altitudes
Increased heat settings (3- 5)
2. Conditions that warrant less air:
Softwood pellets
Low altitudes
Lower heat settings (2-3)
3. Conditions that warrant even less air:
Softwood pellets
Low altitudes
Lower heat settings (1-2)
Things to watch for:
TOO LITTLE AIR
• Extremely lazy flame
• Extremely black and dirty conditions in firebox
• When extended burn on High Settings, too many pellets in firepot
TOO MUCH AIR
• Flame is aggressive but as time progresses, the flame is barely visible
• Fire disappears in burn pot, shown below, or goes out on low settings
Note: Once you have determined the correct air usage for the heat setting and local site
conditions, the air damper control will not need to be adjusted as often. Remember, any
change in site specific conditions will require an adjustment of the air damper.

PRE-OPERATION NOTES
1. Thoroughly read and understand this manual. Pay particular attention to the
maintenance and safety sections of this manual. Failure to inspect the stove and
understand these instructions may cause unsatisfactory performance.
2. Check to see that the intake and exhaust vents are properly tight and correctly
installed.
3. Remove protective materials such as plastic coverings, plastic bags, and other
material shipped with the stove.
4. Insure that the stove is connected to a code approved 120 volt AC power source.
Ensure that the power provided is stable and not varying. If necessary, include a
cost-effective UPS (power source) between the stove and house power to minimize
any problems with the stove.
5. Open the hopper lid and inspect the hopper before filling with fuel. ENSURE no
foreign objects are left in hopper before loading it with approved pellet fuel.
6. The first time the Country Flame pellet stove is fired up, a odor or smoke may
emanate from the pellet stove. This is normal and should not last very long. Once
the unit is “broken in” (after that first firing) no future odors or smoke should
appear.
7.
Fuel should conform to A.P.F.I. standards (see page 7).

IGNITION/START-UP PROCEDURE
Country Flame Technologies introduced its exclusive control board technology in 2001. This
control board technology was introduced across all lines of Country Flame’s pellet and corn stove
products. Country Flame continues to demonstrate leadership in bringing new products to market.
Country Flame developed its own control board technology in order to bring reliable, supportable,
and sustainable biomass-fueled products to market throughout the 21st Century.
Country Flame’s control board design goal was simple:
PROVIDE THE LATEST CONTROL METHODOLOGY TO ENSURE MAXIMUM BURN
EFFICIENCY WHILE AUTOMATICALLY CONTROLLING AS MANY ENVIORNMENTAL AND
SYSTEM VARIALBLES IN ORDER TO ENSURE CUSTOMER SATISFACTION WITH THE
PRODUCT WHILE GAINING CONFIDENCE IN THE PRODUCTS ABILITY TO OPERATE
WITH LIMITED CONSUMER EFFORT.
Country Flame’s control board technology is defined as an “open system.” This means that
Country Flame will seek to provide the most advanced controls methodology in the coming years
while maintaining the look and feel that dealers and customers come to know and expect. This
means that a purchase of today’s Country Flame product allows a customer to upgrade to newer and
more advanced technology, as it becomes available while minimizing cost. Country Flame is
committed to ensuring its customer base will remain a life long family member once the initial
purchase of product is complete. Country Flame’s goal is to ensure a service technician can
diagnose and repair any product problem in less than 30 minutes from arrival to departure of a
customer’s home. The service technician will have to demonstrate an understanding of control
methodology, sensors, basic electric theory, and system operation in order to assist in achieving
these Country Flame goals.
The following block diagram demonstrates the basic theory behind today’s Country Flame control
board technology:

The basic block diagram shows the input and output components to the control board. The
failure of any of these items to work properly will cause a malfunction in the system.
Further information on each function is provided in the tables below.

Alternating Current (AC) Input provided by the local power
company. This source of energy must provide a 120 Volt input
signal with a frequency of 60 Hertz and a maximum branch
current capacity of 15 Amperes. If other devices are connected to
the branch, interference or over current may cause circuit breaker
to trip.
The AC fuse should be rated between 6 and 9 amperes. The
recommended fuse is a Little Fuse Model _______.
Ensures that no blockage of the combustion input or combustion
exhaust air occurs. If the vacuum sensor does not operate
properly, the Control Board will not allow the stove to operate.
Presently, this sensor is a snap disk operating at 110o F +/- 20o F.
This sensor ensures proper exhaust temperature has been reached
and that a fire is present in the burn pot before the control system
begins the burn cycle.
Presently, this sensor is a snap disk operating at 110o F +/- 20o F.
This sensor ensures that a proper amount of heat is available at the
heat exchanger before the room fan is allowed to operate. If the
sensor allows the fan to come on to early, the combustion
chambers temperature could drop to the point that self-combustion
(ignition temperatures) cannot be maintained.
Presently, this sensor is a snap disk operating at 250o F +/- 20o F.
The purpose of this sensor is to shut the entire system down in the
event the firebox causes an overheat condition.
The fuel control is a signal provided from the Control Board to the
Auger Feed Motor. The Control Board controls the amount of
time that the Auger Feed Motor is on and thereby controls the
amount of fuel fed to the fire pot.
The room air control is a signal provided from the Control Board
to the Room Air Fan. The Control Board controls the phase angle
and thereby the amount and time an AC voltage is applied to the
Room Air Fan. This signal controls the speed of the room air
passing over the heat exchanger tubes and the amount of heat
delivered to the living space.
The combustion air control is a signal provided from the Control
Board to the Combustion Fan. The Control Board controls the
phase angle and thereby the amount and time an AC voltage is
applied to the Combustion Air Fan. This signal controls the speed
of the combustion air passing through the burn pot for the different
heat settings
An AC heating element used to provide initial heat to the pellet
combustion process. Once the Control Board senses combustion,
the Igniter is shut off to conserve energy usage.

product. The Control Board has individual personality modules
that allow for stand-alone or semi automatic.

ON/OFF SWITCH
The ON/OFF Switch serves to turn the system on
and off by holding the switch for approximately 5
seconds. The ON/OFF Switch can also be used to
initiate the FUEL PRIME MODE by holding it
for approximately 15 seconds. When in the prime
mode the Thermostat lights will sequentially light
from top to bottom simulating a “filling action” of
the auger tube.
HEAT UP/ HEAT DOWN SWITCH
When these two switches are pressed during the
STARTUP CYCLE only, they can be used to turn
the stir rod of the Harvester model. In all other
pellet stoves these switches only function as heat
up and down switches.
This is a 3-color light when AC power is applied.
A red light indicates that the Control Board has
DC Power available but the system is off. A green
light indicates that the System is on. A yellow
light indicates that the combustion air should be
cleaned. As Country Flame works to improve the
sensor technology, this yellow light will become
more valuable to the service technician as well as
the homeowner.
When all Control Panel lights are flashing on and
off, this indicates that the Product has an
encountered an unknown state. Nothing more,
nothing less. The purpose of these flashing lights
is to alert the home owner or the service
technician that the stove operation ended out of
sequence, ran out of fuel, or encountered a power
interruption that the Control System could not
recover from.
In the Cool Down Mode, the Heat Setting lights
will sequentially go out from top to bottom, all
relight and then sequentially go out from top to
bottom. This cycle will continue until such time
that the Control Board senses the stove has
properly cooled down.
Each heat setting, controlled by the stove Heat Up
or Heat Down switch, is provides as much
combustion air and fuel as is required for that
heat setting. Due to the number of unique
environmental variables as well as variations in
pellet fuel used in different regions, Country
Flame cannot provide exact BTU ratings for each
heat setting except those that were established in
Government Test Labs under controlled
conditions. At the same time, the rule of thumb is
that each heat setting on the Country Flame line
of Biomass Product starts at one pound of fuel per
hour and increments to a top setting of five
pounds of fuel per hour. Using a BTU rating of
from 4,000 to 10,000 BTU per pound of fuel,
depending on the type and moisture content of the
fuel, an estimate of heat output can be made.

SYSTEM START UP
1. Ensure this manual has been read and understood thoroughly.
2. Remove hopper lid and fill hopper with pellets. Replace hopper lid.
3. If auger has been “primed” proceed to Step 4. “Prime” the new pellet stove with fuel. Priming
fills the auger tube with pellets and reduces delays in igniting fuel. Priming the auger should
be completed for a new stove or whenever the stove has been run out of fuel. To prime the
stove: a) CONTINUOUSLY PRESS the “on/off” until b) the red light (igniter symbol) begins
to quickly blink and c) the green light (auger symbol) lights comes on, d) release the “on/off”
button after events b & c occur. The heat setting indicator lights (4 yellow and 1 red light) will
light from low to high, turn off, and then quickly repeat the lighting process as long as the
stove is in the prime mode. Prime mode continues for about 10 minutes (automatic timeout) or
until the operator disables ‘prime’ by holding “on/off” button for 5 seconds (green light next to
on/off button turns red.) Empty the fire pot if a large quantity of fuel has been allowed to feed
into the firepot during the ‘prime’ mode. Proceed to the “lighting process.”
4. To ignite the stove, push and hold the “ON/OFF” button for 5 seconds (light next to the
“ON/OFF” button will turn from red to green.) Release “ON/OFF” button. NOTE: If you
hold the on/off button too long, the stove will go into the prime mode as defined in Step 3.
Once ignition (start-up) mode has begun, the light next to the igniter symbol (red) will turn on
and the light next to the auger symbol (green) will start blinking.
5. The stove will automatically light and complete the ignition cycle. Adjustment of the air
damper control may be necessary depending on local site conditions.
6. When the ignition cycle is complete the stove will start up in the # 3 heat setting.
7. Set the heat setting by pushing the red or blue arrow buttons.
8. The Room Air Blower will activate once its heat sensor warms up. This takes a few minutes.
9. If new, an odor may occur as the paint cures on the stove. This is normal
10. You are now ready to enjoy your new Country Flame Pellet stove.
11. IF electronic ignition ever fails, you may use Starting Gel to IGNITE pellets.
12. Starting Gel can be obtained from your Hearth store. DO NOT USE CHARCOAL
LIGHTER!! Place pellets in the firepot by hand. Squirt gel on top of the pellet bed in the
firepot. Immediately light the gel and close the door. Once the pellets are burning, push the
“On/Off” button until the light turns green. Release the “On/Off” button and monitor the stove
start up for a few minutes.
13. Questions or concerns about lighting or other stove operations should be directed to a local
Country Flame dealer.
14. OPTIONAL THERMOSTAT:
Version 1.0c
Contact your Country Flame dealer.
Page 16
SYSTEM SHUT DOWN
Simply push the “ON/OFF” button and hold for 5 seconds until the lights on the heat settings start to
flash from top to bottom. This designates the “cool down” cycle. The feed auger will shut off
immediately and the blowers will shut down when the unit has cooled off sufficiently.
The stove will remain in the cool down cycle until such time that the Intelli-Choice control board
senses that all temperature sensors have returned back to their “normal” startup state. Once this
occurs, the Intelli-Choice control panel will shut down all fans and turn off the system. Until shut off
is complete, the Intelli-Choice control panel will remain with its temperature lights moving in a
downward motion as the entire group of lights is turned on and each one turned off from top to bottom
to simulate a reduction in temperature.
HOT SYSTEM RESART
Should the operator decide to restart the pellet stove during the cool down cycle, simply push and hold
the “Red” arrow button down 15 seconds until the igniter (red) and auger (green) lights come on. This
initiates the “hot restart” mode has begun. The Intelli-Choice control panel will restart the stove by
turning on the igniter and feeding pellets into the burn pot.
IMPORTANT: If any changes have been made to the air damper setting during any of these shut off
procedures, it is important to monitor the hot restart until such time that the fire is properly burning.
Failure to properly set the air damper based on changes made in temperature settings can lead to “fuel
rich” or “fuel lean” operations. Either of these conditions requires attention by the operator to
properly correct before leaving the stove unattended. Once placed in the hot restart mode, the pellet
stove will automatically proceed into the burn cycle. Adjustment of the air damper may be required
depending on the cleanliness of the stove or other site specific conditions.
Version 1.0c
Page 17
MAINTENANCE
1. If pellets contain a large amount of “fines” (foreign matter or sawdust), you will need to clean
the heat exchanger area for buildup often to determine if any maintenance is needed. You may
want to screen pellets before use if they contain a large number of “fines.”
2. Sand in the pellets may cause “clinkering” (hard brittle deposits found in the bottom of the
firepot). Clinkering is primarily caused by fuel impurities, but it may be intensified if the stove
is run for a long time with a low amount of fuel. A full load of fuel allows less cool air to enter
the burnpot as pellets drop in.
3. A clinker may be removed with a spoon and dropped into the ash pan. NOTE: For your
safety, only remove clinkers from stove when unit is cool. When the stove is cold, the firepot
can be pulled out and removed for a thorough cleaning.
4. SOOT AND FLYASH: the products of combustion will contain small particles of flyash. The
flyash will collect in the exhaust venting system and restrict the flow of the flue gases.
Incomplete combustion, such as occurs during start-up, shut down, or incorrect operation of the
room heater will lead to some soot formation which will collect in the exhaust venting system.
The exhaust venting system should be inspected at least once every year to determine if
cleaning is necessary.
5. The frequency of cleaning your unit will depend on the particular installation, fuel and usage of
your unit. You will know your stove needs cleaning either by inspection or by a marked
decrease in performance. We suggest you check your unit often, especially during its “breakin” period.
6. Shut off the power to the unit and allow it to cool off when performing cleaning and
maintenance.
7. The exhaust vent should be checked frequently, at least once a season and cleaned at least once
a season.
8. Check to insure that the fresh air intake is clear and unobstructed, especially at the start of the
season.
9. The Heat Exchanger has a simple cleaning feature. A sliding plate is fit over the fifteen tubes
of the exchanger. The sliding plate is attached to a small rod protruding through the front of
the stove just below the louver vent. Push the rod to the back of the exchanger and then pull
forward to the front, several times. This will effectively remove ash and debris from the
surface of the heat exchanger. Performing this step often will insure that cleaning is an easy
task. If buildup is allowed to go unattended, cleanup will be much more difficult and the
efficiency of your stove will be adversely affected.

10. Remove the ash pan using either the ash pan removal tool (furnished) or a glove. Lift the ash
pan up and out the door. Dump the ash pan into a fire safe, covered container. The firepot
may be lifted out and dumped using a glove. With these items removed, carefully check that
the unit and all ashes are cooled completely. Vacuum out the bottom of the unit, paying close
attention to the air inlet. Vacuum the inside of the unit thoroughly cleaning the 2 holes found
under the ash pan. Replace all parts once cleaning is completed. This cleaning should be done
monthly or as needed to insure proper operation. An annual cleaning should be accomplished
by a certified professional to ensure proper performance.
11. Depending on usage, both the room air & exhaust blowers may need to be oiled once a year
with proper electrical motor oil. Locate the oil ports on either the side or top of the units and
add three drops of oil. This simple step will greatly increase the life and serviceability of your
unit.
12. To clean glass, use a mild non-abrasive cleaner when cool. Speedy White is an excellent glass
and stove cleaner. Creosote builds up on glass quickly when fire is burned at lowest settings.
DO NOT use abrasive cleaners on glass. Periodically clean out the door air wash (a groove at
the bottom of the door). This air wash directs air over the glass door to minimize soot buildup
on the door.
13. Once a year it is advisable to inspect the door gasket. This is done by taking a 2” strip of paper
and shutting the door on it. Then pull the paper to test the gasket pressure. You should have to
pull the paper from the door. Check all around the gasket. If the paper slides out easily or falls
out, the gasket needs to be replaced. We recommend that both the door and glass gasket be
replaced at the same time.
To replace the gaskets, remove the door by lifting it straight up, off of its hinge pins and lay
face down on a soft surface. Remove door gasketing (you may need to use pliers). Remove
glass retaining clips and remove glass. Strip off old gasketing around glass and clean glass
well. Clean out old stove gasketing material from gasket track.
Once the door and glass are clean, apply gasketing material to glass surface and return glass to
door, securing with clips (Use care not to over tighten). Then apply a generous bead of
gasketing cement into the track. Position the new gasket into the window frame. Gently press
this gasket into the door to ensure proper “seating.” Trim off any excess gasketing and wipe
away excess cement. Let the cement set 24 hours before placing door back on unit. Gasket
material and cement may be obtained from your dealer.
14. Replacement glass should be 0.200” (5mm) thick. Overall size of the glass is by 16” (405mm)
wide by 11” (279mm) high, cut to an irregular shape to fit the door front. Your unit uses
Corning Pyroceram II, or a similar ceramic type high temp glass. Do not use any other glass
type in this unit. Replacement glass may be obtained from a Country Flame Dealer.
15. Use care not to slam or strike the door as this could result in glass breakage. If the glass in a
pellet stove is broken or cracked, DO NOT operate the unit until the ceramic glass has been
replaced.

INSTALLATION / FREESTANDING UNIT / POSITIONING
1. When determining the proper location for your unit, keep in mind the heater should be kept out
of any traffic paths in the room, away from curtains, drapes or any other combustibles. It
should also be placed in a position where heat will be evenly distributed throughout the room.
2. When location has been determined, position the unit within the clearance parameters shown
below.
3. MINIMUM CLEARANCES: The following diagram provides minimum clearances for the
Little Rascal installation based on whether single or double-wall flue pipe and connectors are
used.

4. If installing a pellet stove on carpet, linoleum or other combustible material, a floor protector is
required. It should be at least 42” wide and 30 ½” deep and placed directly under the pellet
stove. This floor protection must be made of metal or some other non-combustible material,
such as ceramic tile or brick. EXCEPTION: Only if the pellet stove is installed with the
pedestal option, no floor protection is required.
5. Verify that the location for a pellet stove does not interfere or block airflow. The Little Rascal
draws air from the side grills on the left and right doors.
6. WARNING: ALL combustibles in front of a LR-01 must be kept a minimum of at least 48”
(120cm) from the unit. Remember that combustible vapors can travel a long distance.
7. A combustible mantel may be located no closer than 6” (150cm) to the top of a freestanding
heater.
Version 1.0c
Page 21
INSTALLATION / FREESTANDING UNIT / VENTING
1. After positioning the Little Rascal in its final position, proper flue venting must be installed
according to local and national codes. The LR-01 is a rear vented unit and flue vent pipe can
be run directly from the rear of the unit. Proper venting can be achieved by installing 3” TYPE
PL double wall vent pipe according to code requirements. Country Flame requires the use of
4” flue vent pipe if lengths of ten feet or greater are to be used in a specific installation. Pellet
flue pipe manufacturers’ instructions should be consulted for detailed installation instructions
of their product.
These same manufacturers provide detailed drawings of venting
configurations, which meet or exceed code requirements. This information is available from
hearth dealers or can be downloaded from specific websites.
FOLLOW ALL VENT MANUFACTURER’S VENTING INSTRUCTIONS.
INSTALLATION DRAWINGS ARE FOR ILLUSTRATION PURPOSES ONLY.
WARNING: Operation of the Little Rascal Model LR-01 is dangerous when not connected to a
properly installed; code approved, and maintained flue pipe system.
2. The venting of this unit should NOT be connected to a flue serving another appliance.
3. At least a 3” clearance is required from all combustibles to the vent pipe, when using required
TYPE PL double wall vent pipe with stainless steel liner. This includes the area(s) where the
pipe passes through the roof. This clearance is generally met by installing flashing in roofs and
fire stop spacers between floors and ceilings. A thimble is needed for through wall
applications. Do not install a flue damper in this system.
4. Install the vent pipe directly onto the vent adaptor on the back of the unit. Be sure to push
firmly into position. Each flue pipe joint needs to be joined tightly with at least (3) sheet metal
screws and sealed with RTV silicone or aluminum flue tape. Air tight venting is required of
each flue pipe joint.
NOTE: IT IS RECOMMENDED, BUT NOT REQUIRED (EXCEPT IN MOBILE HOMES),
THAT INSTALLATIONS USE OUTSIDE COMBUSTION AIR FOR THE PELLET STOVE.
IF ROOM AIR IS USED FOR FRESH COMBUSTION AIR, A BAROMETRIC AIR VENT
SHOULD BE INSTALLED WITHIN A HOME TO MONITOR AND ENSURE ADEQUATE
AIR FLOW.
5. When using outside air, the metal rigid or flexible inlet pipe should have a mesh screen to
prevent rodents or birds blocking the pipe, also an elbow or shield should be used to prevent
prevailing winds from blowing directly into the air intake. For best efficiency, locate air inlet
24” (607mm) or more from exhaust vent pipe.
6. The LR-01 is designed to accept installations using a horizontal vent through an exterior wall.
A horizontal flue pipe installation should be a minimum of 24” from pellet stove vent pipe to
flue cap connection. FIGURE 1 shows a through the wall exterior vent installation.

8. For installations that pass through a vertical wall and not through the roof, Country Flame
recommends an installation similar to the one shown in FIGURE 3. Dimension A should be a
minimum of 16” and dimension B should be a minimum of 3”. Any outside vent should have a
vertical run of at least 5’. At the same time, ensure that termination of the flue pipe does not
occur just under the roof overhang. Such a termination can cause smoke to seep back through
the roof and into the home. For all flue pipe runs over 5’, there should be a flue support no less
than 5’ apart.

INSTALLATION / INSERT UNIT / POSITIONING
1. The LR-01 insert is designed to be inserted into an existing masonry fireplace or zero clearance
box. The suitability of the existing firebox needs to be determined. You should insure that the
heater is kept out of any traffic paths in the room, away from curtains, drapes or any other
combustibles. You should also check that the existing fireplace was placed in a position where
heat will be evenly distributed throughout the room.
2. If the existing fireplace is found to be suitable, the LR-01 may be installed using zero
clearance.
3. While installing the LR-01, verify that the location will not interfere with the circulation
airflow. The unit draws air from the grills on both sides of the unit.
4. The heater should be installed in such a manner so that the front of the unit remains unblocked.
This will allow for needed service and maintenance to the unit, and provide access to the
firepot cleanout.

INSTALLATION / INSERT UNIT / VENTING
1. The LR-01 is designed for both new installations and as an insert into existing fireplaces. The
LR-01 is NOT designed to be installed without proper vent pipe. Proper venting can be
achieved by installing a 3” (less than ten feet) or 4” (more than ten feet) TYPE PL double wall
vent pipe or listed TYPE “L” chimney liner. A listed single wall stainless steel liner may be
used if installing the LR-01 into an approved wood burning chimney. The vent pipe may be run
to the top of the existing chimney or to a point 18” above the damper of the existing chimney.
Flue pipe manufacturer’s instructions should be consulted for further detailed pipe installation
instructions. Most flue pipe manufacturers will provide detailed drawings of venting plans,
which meet or exceed code requirements. NOTE: Follow all vent manufacturers vent pipe
instructions without deviation. Check local codes to ensure conformance.
2. WARNING: DO NOT operate any pellet stove unless connected to proper flue system. Do
not connect the LR-01 to a chimney flue serving another appliance.
3. Flue pipe joints need to be joined tightly to ensure air tight venting with at least (3) sheet metal
screws and sealed with RTV silicone or approved aluminum flue pipe tape.
4. FIGURE 8 shows a sample of a Country Flame recommended method of flue pipe installation.
The vent pipe is extended just above the top of the existing chimney (consult local ordinances
for code requirements.) The flue pipe must be fitted with a proper pellet flue cap. A storm
collar and flashing should be installed to seal off the chimney opening.
FIGURE 8: CHIMNEY FLUE AND FRESH AIR VENTING
Version 1.0c
Page 28
FIGURE 9, Item A shows another method of installing an LR-01 pellet stove. The flue pipe is
extended a minimum of 18” past an existing damper with a seal plate installed at or above the damper.
Although this is an approved method of installation, Country Flame strongly recommends that all
pellet stove chimney pipe be extended to the top of the chimney and properly terminated and capped to
ensure optimum performance
FIGURE 9: MINIMUM FLUE VENT CHIMNEY INSTALLATION
NOTE: Installing a fresh air inlet line can be similar to the illustration accompanying the
freestanding units or the line can be run out of the top of the chimney. Attach a screen to keep
out debris. For best efficiency, locate air inlet 24” (607mm) or more from exhaust vent pipe.
5. WARNING: When installing unit as an insert into an existing fireplace, DO NOT remove any
bricks or mortar from the old fireplace.
6. While running flue pipe up past the existing damper in the fireplace, lock the old damper into
the open position.

INSTALLATION / INSERT UNIT / DETAILS
1. Leveling the Insert:
A. If the firebox hearth floor is level, install the LR-01 and prepare to install the shroud.
B. If the firebox hearth floor is uneven, install the LR-01 and grout or shim as necessary to
ensure the unit is level or slightly declining from front to back. If the LR-01 leans
forward in an uneven position, the pellets may bridge during stove operation.
2. The LR-01 is designed to be inserted into a minimum 16” deep firebox. If the depth is greater
than 16” this will only provide additional room but if the depth is less than 16” then a hearth
extension may be required. Contact a certified professional installer or a Country Flame
Dealer for assistance.
3. Installing the Shroud:
A. After leveling and locating the unit and installing venting and power, pull the unit out
from the fireplace to allow the shroud and its insulation to be installed.
B. The LR-01 shroud is designed to mount 12.5” back from the face of the stove just
behind the side air vents.
C. To mount the shroud, position the left and right side panels on their respective sides
positioned 12.5” back from the face of the unit and attach with self drilling screws
provided.
D. Position the top shroud piece behind the 2 Side panels. Attach with self drilling screws
provided
E. Assemble the 3 piece brass trim kit and slide it down into position around the shroud
panels.
F. The shroud may be mounted farther back on the unit if the fireplace depth requires it.
G. Place the insulation provided around the perimeter of the backside of the shroud.
H. Push insert back against the face of the fireplace insuring the insulation seals up against
the fireplace facing. On rough facings such as fieldstone, additional insulation may be
required. Do not use insulation with paper backing
