SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP GAS
Propane (LP-Gas) is a flammable gas which can cause fires
and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and
colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions which can protect both you and your family from an
accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point
by point with the members of your household. Someday
when there may not be a minute to lose, everyone’s safety
will depend on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following information, you feel you still need more
information, please contact your gas supplier.
LP-GAS WARNING ODOR
If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.
That’s your signal to go into immediate action!
• Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your phone.
Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.
• Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do
that IMMEDIATELY.
• Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.
• LP-Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas such as
basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak, keep
out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until firefighters
declare them to be safe.
• Use your neighbor’s phone and call a trained LP-Gas service
person and the fire department. Even though you may not
continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do not
re-enter the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
• Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for escaped
gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly
trained LP-Gas service people should repair the leak, then
check and relight the gas appliance for you.
no odor detected - odor fade
Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the
odor of the chemical put into the gas. You must find out if you
can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease your
ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect your
sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors in
the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the gas odor
or their minds are on something else. Thinking about smelling a
gas odor can make it easier to smell.
The odorant in LP-Gas is colorless, and it can fade under some
circumstances. For example, if there is an underground leak, the
movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants
in LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading can occur if
there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into walls,
masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will take
some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.
LP-Gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could
vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be
more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest gas
odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately
go into action as instructed earlier.
some points to remember
• Learn to recognize the odor of LP-Gas. Your local LP-Gas
Dealer can give you a “Scratch and Sniff” pamphlet. Use it to
find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that
your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LP-Gas
Dealer.
• If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service,
or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gas system. If
you are qualified, consciously think about the odor of LP-Gas
prior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service or
making adjustments.
• Sometimes a basement or a closed-up house has a musty
smell that can cover up the LP-Gas odor. Do not try to light
pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area
where the conditions are such that you may not detect the odor
if there has been a leak of LP-Gas.
• Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of
new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should
be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders
are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks, or
reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed to set too
long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which have been out
of service for a time may develop internal rust which will cause
odor fade. If such conditions are suspected to exist, a periodic
Page 4
sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you have any question
about the gas odor, call your LP-Gas dealer. A periodic
sniff test of the LP-Gas is a good safety measure under
any condition.
• If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gas odorant and you
think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the same
immediate action recommended above for the occasion when
you do detect the odorized LP-Gas.
• If you experience a complete “gas out,” (the container is under
no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately. If the
container valve is left on, the container may draw in some air
through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this occurs, some
new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is left open, then
treat the container as a new tank. Always be sure your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off at the container
before it goes completely empty or having it refilled before it is
completely empty.

NOTICE: Never use plastic pipe. Check to confirm whether your
local codes allow copper tubing or galvanized.
NOTICE: Since some municipalities have additional local codes, it is
always best to consult your local authority and installation code.
The use of the following gas connectors is recommended:
— ANS Z21.24 Appliance Connectors of Corrugated Metal Tubing
and Fittings.
— ANS Z21.45 Assembled Flexible Appliance Connectors of Other
Than All-Metal Construction
The above connectors may be used if acceptable by the authority
having jurisdiction. The state of Massachusetts requires that a flexible
appliance connector cannot exceed three feet in length.
Installing the Main Gas Cock
Each appliance should have its own manual gas cock.
A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of the unit.
Where none exists, or where its size or location is not adequate,
contact your local authorized installer for installation or relocation.
Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant
to the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be
checked for leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap
solution watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if
unexposed, a pressure test should be made.
Never use an exposed flame to check for leaks. Appliance must
be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe
capped or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with
appliance connected; control valve will sustain damage!
NOTICE: The millivolt gas controls are equipped with a captured
screw type pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to
provide a 1/8" test point up stream of the control.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings.
The appliance and it’s individual shut off valve must be disconnected
from supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system
at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system
by closing its individual manual shut off valve during any pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to
or less than 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
Attention! If one of the procedures results in pressures in excess of
1/2 psig (14" w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the fireplace gas valve, it will result
in a hazardous condition.
Checking Manifold Pressures
Both Propane and Natural gas valves have a built-in pressure
regulator in the gas valve. Natural gas models will have a manifold

INSTALLATION
To begin, remove the glass door by releasing the 2 spring latches
at the top, and 2 spring latches at the bottom of the door frame.
Check to make sure there is no hidden damage to the unit. Take
a moment to plan out the gas, venting and electrical route. It is
best to start with the gas line first, followed by the vent system and
electrical supply requirements.
Attention: If installing the optional FBB8 Blower Kit, it is recommended that it be installed in the fireplace before completing installation of the fireplace.
This fireplace requires no hearth extension. Combustible material
on the floor may be installed up to the fireplace.
Install the fireplace without the Surround panels attached and
make all gas, venting and electrical connections.
To complete the installation, install the Surround panel assembly.
Refer to the instructions included with the surround panel kit to
install properly.
Framing and Finishing
1. Choose unit location.
2. Frame out opening for fireplace as shown in Figures 2 through
5 and install finished wall surface over framing prior to setting
fireplace into opening and securing unit.
3. The fireplace should be installed on a metal or wood panel
extending the full width and depth of the appliance. The vertical dimensions in Figure 2 must be adjusted when a metal or
wood panel is placed beneath the appliance.
4. Install the side Framing brackets (1 per side) using the pilot holes provided behind the side flanges on the fireplace
outer wrap. Two setback locations are provided for locating
the framing brackets depending on which decorative surround
is to be installed. See Figures 9a and 9b. The pilot holes in
the forward position should be used if installing the fireplace
after the finished wall surface is present. The rearward hole
position should be used to install the fireplace directly to the
framed opening, prior to installing the finish wall surface. The framing bracket locations are based on using 1/2” thick
surface finishing materials over the framing. See Figure 9. Note: If installing the framing brackets over the finished face wall
surface, be sure you leave access for installing the venting components at the sides or rear of the framed out structure.
Note: Use Figure 9a to locate the nailing flanges if installing a
DS(25,33)66BL surround accessory. Use Figure 9b to locate
the nailing flanges if installing a DF(25,33)M4 series surround
accessory.
5. Secure unit to wall opening with common screw type fasteners. See Figures 5 and 9.
6. Maintain combustible clearances as shown by Figures 2
through 5.

7. Prior to installing the Fireplace, hand bend the two (2) Top
Framing Spacers into triangles as shown in Figure 10. To attach the outer leg of the standoffs, remove one (1) screw from
the front of the outer top flange of the fireplace, then re-instal
the same screw through the tab of the top standoff spacers
into the outer top to secure. See Figure 10.
Note: A combustible header may rest on top of the top standoff spacers. Screws may be installed through the top of the
standoff spacers and into the header to add stability of the
spacer if desired.
8. Non-combustible headers may be used above the fireplace
to maintain structural integrity, providing sufficient backing for
non-combustible finishing materials.
9. Because of the close proximity of the vent system to the header framing, it is recommended that a combustible header be
turned upright to provide the 1” minimum clearance required
to vent pipe. See Page 7, Figure 2.
10. The finished wall surface materials must be non-combustible
for a distance of at least 12” above the top of the fireplace
outer cabinet.
11. It is recommended that the Junction Box be installed and
properly wired whether or not the optional blower accessory
is installed. Caution: Wiring must be performed by a qualified
electrician.

Vent System Installation Precautions
Before starting installation of vent kits, the installer should read
these instructions and the Vent Kit Instructions to ensure that a
proper vent installation is completed. Consult your local Building
Codes before beginning the installation.
WARNING
THIS GAS FIREPLACE AND VENT ASSEMBLY MUST BE
VENTED DIRECTLY TO THE OUTSIDE AND MUST NEVER BE
ATTACHED TO A CHIMNEY SERVING A SEPARATE SOLID
FUEL BURNING APPLIANCE. EACH GAS APPLIANCE
MUST USE A SEPARATE VENT SYSTEM. COMMON VENT
SYSTEMS ARE PROHIBITED.
Vertical Venting
The inlet and exhaust vent pipes MUST be connected to the
proper collars on the unit AND to the termination cap or the unit
will not operate.
WARNING
MAJOR U.S. BUILDING CODES SPECIFY MINIMUM
CHIMNEY AND/OR VENT HEIGHT ABOVE THE ROOF TOP.
THESE MINIMUM HEIGHTS ARE NECESSARY IN THE
INTEREST OF SAFETY. SEE FIGURES 13 AND 14 FOR
MINIMUM HEIGHTS, PROVIDED THE TERMINATION CAP IS
AT LEAST 2 FEET FROM A VERTICAL WALL AND 2 FEET
BELOW A HORIZONTAL OVERHANG.
Note: This also pertains to vertical vent systems installed on the
outside of the building.

VERTICAL TERMINATION
Determining Minimum Vent Height Above the Roof.
WARNING
Major U.S. building codes specify minimum chimney and/or
vent height above the roof top. These minimum heights are
necessary in the interest of safety. These specifications are
summarized in Figure 13.
Vertical Through the Roof Applications
The Gas Fireplace has been approved for:
a) Vertical installations up to 40 feet in height (bottom of fireplace
to cap).
b) Two sets of 45 degree elbow offsets (bends in flexvent) within
the vertical installation. From 0 to a maximum of 8 ft. of vent
pipe can be used between elbows.
c) Wall straps must be used to support offset pipe every 4'.
This application will require that you first determine the roof pitch
and use the appropriate venting components.

General Maintenance
Conduct an inspection of the venting system semi-annually.
Recommended areas to inspect are as follows:
1. Check areas of the venting system which are exposed to the
elements for corrosion. These will appear as rust spots or
streaks and, in extreme cases, holes. These components should
immediately be replaced.
2. Remove the cap and shine a flashlight down the vent. Remove
any bird nests or other foreign material.
3. Check for evidence of excessive condensate, such as water
droplets forming in the flex venting and subsequently dripping
out at joints or seams. Condensate can cause corrosion of caps,
pipe and fittings. It may be caused by having excessive lateral
runs, or having exterior portions of the system exposed to cold
weather.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe sections or fittings have been
disturbed and, consequently, loosened. Also, check mechanical
supports, such as wall straps or plumbers’ tape for rigidity.
Figure 15
Note that for steep roof pitches, the vent height must be increased.
In high wind conditions, nearby trees, adjoining roof lines, steep
pitched roofs, and other similar factors can result in poor draft, or
down-drafting. In these cases, increasing the vent height may solve
this problem.

Positioning the Fireplace
Determine the exact position of the appliance so the direct vent
termination will be centered (if possible) between two (2) studs. This
will avoid any extra framing. All vent kit pipes should be assembled
on the unit after the unit is secured into the final position.
Cutting the Hole
After the fireplace has been positioned in its permanent location,
the hole through the exterior wall of the house can be cut. This
hole must be 11" (279mm) high x 10" (254mm) wide with its center
line determined by the amount of vertical rise and horizontal run of
the termination. (See Figure 21) When locating the hole it must be
noted that the bottom of the cap must be 12" (305mm) above the
ground level, and top of the cap must be no less than 18" (457mm)
below a combustible projection, and no closer than 9" (229mm) to
any wall running parallel to vent termination. See Figures 27 and 28.
Note: A minimum 2’ vertical rise is required off the top of the
fireplace with all acceptable vent systems.

Figure 27
Vertical Sidewall Installations
Important! Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible materials is three (3") (76 mm) on top, and (1") (25 mm) on bottom
and sides.
Important! When vent termination exits through foundation less than 20" below siding outcrop, the vent pipe must extend outward so that
the horizontal vent terminal is located flush to, or beyond the outcrop siding.
Information on Various Venting Routes and Components
Important: It is always best to locate the fireplace in such a way that minimizes the number of offsets and horizontal vent length.
Since it is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust, certain
limitations as to vent configurations apply and must be strictly adhered to.
The graph showing the relationship between vertical and horizontal side wall venting will help to determine the various vent lengths
allowable.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace to the face of the outer wall.
The maximum horizontal vent run is 20 feet (6.10 m) when the vertical vent rise is 8 feet (2.44 m) (See Figure 17).
Venting terminals shall not be recessed into wall or siding.

VENT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION
Installing Vent Components (Figure 29)
Begin the vent system installation by installing the first Simpson
Duravent component, 90° elbow to the starting collars or straight
pipe on the top of the appliance, then the straight pipe length and
then horizontal or vertical termination kit.
NOTE: All outer connection joints must be sealed with aluminum
tape, screws or silicone sealant rated above 300°F/149°C. The
inner flue joints do not require any sealant.
Simpson Duravent vent system components lock into place by sliding
the concentric pipe section with four (4) equally spaced interior beads
onto the appliance collar or previously installed component end with
four (4) equally spaced indented sections. When the internal beads
of each starting outer pipe line up, rotate pipe section clockwise 90°
(approximately 3 inches). The vent pipe is now locked together.
Continue adding components per the pre-planned vent system
configuration. Be certain that each succeeding vent component
is securely fitted and locked into the preceding component in the
vent system.

Installing Firestops
Firestops are required for safety whenever the vent system passes
through an interior wall, an exterior wall, or a ceiling. These firestops
act as a firebreak heat shield and as a means to insure that minimum
clearances are maintained to the vent system.
Horizontal Firestops (Figure 31)
Horizontal runs in the vent system which pass through either interior
or exterior walls, require the use of wall firestops on both sides of
the wall through which the vent passes.
Position the firestops on both sides of the framed hole, previously
cut. Refer to Figures 32 to 34 on page 25 for sizing information.
Secure firestop with nails or screws. The heat shields of the firestops
MUST BE placed towards the top of the hole. Continue the vent
run through the firestops.

FRAMING AND FINISHING (continued)
Vertical Firestops (Figures 32, 33 and 34)
Vertical runs of this system which pass through ceilings require the
use of ONE (1) ceiling firestop at the hole in each ceiling through
which the vent passes.
Position a plumb bob directly over the center of the vertical vent
component and mark the ceiling to establish the center point of the
vent. Drill a hole or drive a nail through this center point and check
the floor above for any obstructions such as wiring or plumbing
runs. Reposition the appliance and vent system, if necessary, to
accommodate ceiling joists and/or obstructions.
Cut a 10 inch x 10 inch hole through the ceiling, using the center
point previously marked. Frame the hole with framing lumber the
same size as the ceiling joists. (See Figure 32.) If the area above
the ceiling is NOT an attic, position and secure the ceiling firestop on
the ceiling side of the previously cut and framed hole. (See Figure
33.) If the area above the ceiling is an attic, position and secure the
firestop on top of the previously framed hole. (See Figure 34.)
NOTE: Remove insulation from the framed area in the attic before
installing the firestop and/or vent pipes.

HORIZONTAL TERMINATION
NOTE: Termination cap should pass through the wall firestop from
the exterior of the building. Adjust the termination cap to
its final exterior position on the building.
Warning: Termination cap must be positioned so that arrow
is pointing up.
Attach the termination cap with the four wood screws provided.
Before attachment of the termination, run a bead of silicone sealant
rated above 250°F on its outside edge too, so as to make a seal
to the exterior wall.
NOTE: Wood screws can and should be replaced with appropriate
fasteners for use on stucco, brick, concrete or other types
of siding.
CAUTION: If exterior walls are finished with vinyl siding (or materials
that could become discolored or warp), it is necessary to install a
vinyl siding standoff.
The vinyl siding standoff will be installed between the vent termination
and the exterior wall. (See Figure 35) This horizontal vent termination
bolts onto the flat portion of the vinyl siding standoff, so an air space
will exist between the wall and the termination cap.

VERTICAL TERMINATION
Locate and mark the center point of the vent pipe using a nail on
the underside of the roof. Drive the nail through the center point.
Mark the outline of the roof hole around this center point.
NOTE: Size of the roof hole dimensions depend on the pitch of
the roof. There must be a 1 inch clearance (25 mm) to the
vertical pipe sections. This clearance is to all combustible
material.
Cover the opening of the vent pipe and cut and frame the roof hole.
Use framing lumber the same size as the roof rafters and install the
frame securely. Flashing anchored to frame must withstand high
winds. The storm collar is placed over this joint to make a water-tight
seal. Non-hardening sealant should be used to completely seal this
flashing installation.
Determining Minimum Vent Height Above the Roof.
WARNING: Major U.S. building codes specify minimum chimney
and/or vent height above the roof top. These minimum heights
are necessary in the interest of safety. These specifications are
summarized in Figure 36.

fittings. It may be caused by having excessive lateral runs, too
many elbows and exterior portions of the system being exposed
to cold weather.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe sections or fittings have been
disturbed and, consequently, loosened. Also, check mechanical
supports, such as wall straps or plumbers’ tape for rigidity.
Venting terminal shall not be recessed into a wall or siding.
A removable panel or other means must be provided in the enclosure
for visual inspection of the flue connection.
NOTE: This also pertains to vertical vent systems installed on the
outside of the building.
Slide the vertical vent cap over the ends of the vent pipe and secure.
See Figure 37.
Installing the Vent System in a Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose the gas
appliance and/or it’s vent system. Vertical vent runs on the outside
of a building may be, but are not required to be installed inside a
chase.

Note that for steep roof pitches, the vent height must be increased.
In high wind conditions, nearby trees, adjoining roof lines, steep
pitched roofs, and other similar factors can result in poor draft, or
down-drafting. In these cases, increasing the vent height may solve
this problem.
General Maintenance
Conduct an inspection of the venting system semi-annually.
Recommended areas to inspect are as follows:
1. Check areas of the venting system which are exposed to the
elements for corrosion. These will appear as rust spots or
streaks and, in extreme cases, holes. These components should
immediately be replaced.
Figure 37
CAUTION: Treatment of firestop spacers and construction of
the chase may vary with the type of building. These instructions
are not substitutes for the requirements of local building
codes. Therefore, your local building codes must be checked
to determine the requirements for these steps.
NOTE: When installing this vent system in a chase, it is always good
building practice to insulate the chase as you would the outside
walls of your home. This is especially important for cold climate
installations. Upon completion of building your chase framing,
install the vent system by following the instructions in this manual.
Remember to build the chase large enough so that minimum
clearance of combustible materials (including insulation) to the vent
system are maintained.
2. Remove the cap and shine a flashlight down the vent. Remove
any bird nests or other foreign material.
3. Check for evidence of excessive condensate, such as water
droplets forming in the inner liner and subsequently dripping
out at joints. Condensate can cause corrosion of caps, pipe and

VERTICAL TERMINATION (continued)
Installation of Vertical Inlet Baffle
The vertical inlet baffle is to be used only in a completely vertical vent
installation. The vertical inlet baffle can be used when the vertical
vent rise is between 10 feet and 40 feet. To maintain the yellow
flame in the main burner, purchase Vertical Inlet baffle, DVF-139
from your Empire Comfort Systems, Inc. distributor or dealer for
Simpson Duravent only.
In a vertical vent rise the flame on the main burner can be reduced
due to the drawing action from the flue exhaust pipe and the air inlet
pipe. A decrease in the height or the appearance of the yellow flame
may occur when the vertical vent rise is between 10 feet and 40 feet.
To enhance the yellow flame on the main burner, the vertical inlet
baffle can be attached to the direct vent high wind vertical top.
Please use the following steps to install the vertical inlet
baffle.
1. Place the vertical inlet baffle over the exterior of the air inlet
openings on the direct vent high wind vertical top.
2. There are three sections of air openings on the exterior of the
air inlet pipe.
To achieve the maximum amount of yellow flame the vertical
inlet baffle will cover-up three sections of air openings.
To achieve the minimum amount of yellow flame the vertical
inlet baffle will cover-up one section of air openings.
3. Attach vertical inlet baffle to the direct vent high wind vertical
top with (2) 3/8" hex-head screws provided with vertical inlet
baffle.
4. Installation of vertical inlet baffle is completed.
Reassembly and Resealing Gas Accumulation Relief System
Glass Frame Assembly and Combustion Chamber
Whenever the glass frame assembly is pivoted open by a delayed
ignition in the main burner, the glass frame assembly gaskets and
combustion chamber must be examined by a qualified service person
for damage. All damaged gaskets on the glass frame assembly and
combustion chamber must be replaced by a qualified service person.
If damage occurs to the combustion chamber, it must be replaced
by a qualified service person. Contact Empire Comfort Systems,
Inc. for replacement parts.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
750 Millivolt System
The standing pilot (750 millivolt system) is a continuous burning pilot.
The pilot remains ON even when the main burner is OFF.
The OWNER should carefully read and follow these operating
instructions at all times. Lower the door assembly to view the gas
controls for the fireplace.
When you ignite the pilot, the thermopile produces millivolts (electrical
current) which energizes the magnet in the gas valve. After 30
seconds to 1 minute time period you can release the gas control
knob and the pilot will stay ON. Allow your pilot flame to operate an
additional one (1) to two (2) minutes before you turn the gas control
knob from the PILOT position to the ON position. This time period
allows the millivolts (electrical current) to build-up to a sufficient
level allowing the gas control to operate properly.
Initial Lighting
Upon completing the gas line or turning the gas valve on after it has
been in the “OFF” position, a small amount of air will be in the lines.
When first lighting the fireplace, it will take a few minutes for the
lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is complete,
the fireplace will light and operate satisfactorily.
1. Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for standing
pilot controls found in this manual and on labels found in control
compartment behind the door assembly.
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such purging
if the gas valve is not turned to “OFF.”
Pilot Flame (Figure 49)
The thermopile/thermocouple (standing pilot) tips should be covered
with flame.
WARNING
During the initial purging and subsequent lightings, never
allow the gas valve control knob to remain depressed in the
“pilot” position without pushing the piezo ignitor button at
least once every second.
2. During the operating season, leave the control valve knob in the
“ON” position. This will allow the pilot flame to remain lit. Turn
the burner flame on or off with the fireplace Remote/OFF/ON
switch, wall switch or remote controls.
NOTICE: The gas control valve allows you to increase or decrease
the height of the main burner flame. The control valve has a pressure
regulator with a knob as shown in Figure 48. Rotate the knob
clockwise to “HI” to increase the flame height and counterclockwise
to “LO” to decrease the flame height.
3. When the operating season is over, turn the Remote/OFF/ON
switch to “OFF” and the control valve to “OFF”. The system,
including the pilot light, will be shut down.

STANDING PILOT TROUBLESHOOTING
With proper installation and maintenance, your new Direct Vent Gas Fireplace will provide years of trouble-free
service. If you do experience a problem, refer to the Trouble Shooting Guide below. This guide will assist a qualified
service person in the diagnosis of problems and the corrective action to be taken.
1.Spark ignitor will not light pilot after repeated triggering
of piezo ignitor button.
a. Ensure the electrode wire (piezo wire) is properly connected
to the piezo and electrode.
b. Defective ignitor (no spark electrode)
—Check for spark at electrode and pilot; if no spark and
electrode wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
c. No gas or low gas pressure.
—Check remote shut off valves from fireplace. Usually
there is a valve near the main. There can be more than
one (1) valve between the fireplace and main.
—Low pressure can be caused by a variety of situations
such as a bent line, too narrow diameter of pipe, or low
line pressure. Consult with plumber or gas supplier.
d. No LP in tank.
—Check LP (propane) tank. Refill tank.
2.Pilot will not stay lit after carefully following lighting
instructions.
a. Defective thermocouple.
—Check that pilot flame impinges on thermocouple. Clean
and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement.
—Ensure the thermocouple connection at the gas valve
is fully inserted and tight (hand tight plus 1/4 turn). Faulty
thermocouple if reading is below specified minimum of 15
millivolts.
—Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one
millivolt meter lead wire on the end of the thermocouple
and the other millivolt meter lead wire on the thermocouple
copper wire. Start the pilot and hold the valve knob in. If
the millivolt reading is less than 15 millivolt, replace the
thermocouple.
b. Defective valve.
—If thermocouple is producing more than 15 millivolts,
replace faulty valve.
3.Pilot burning, no gas to burner, valve knob “ON”, REMOTE/
OFF/ON switch “ON.”
a. REMOTE/OFF/ON switch, wall switch, remote control or
wires defective.
—Check REMOTE/OFF/ON switch and wires for proper
connections. Place jumper wires across terminal at switch.
If burner comes on, replace defective switch. If OK, place
jumper wires across switch wires at gas valve-if burner
comes on, wires are faulty or connections are bad.
b. Thermopile may not be generating sufficient millivolts.
—If the pilot flame is not close enough physically to the
thermopile, adjust the pilot flame.
—Be sure the wire connections from the thermopile at the
gas valve terminals are tight and the thermopile is fully
inserted into the pilot bracket.
—Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take the
reading at TH-TP & TP terminals of the gas valve. The
meter should read 350 millivolts minimum, while holding the
valve knob depressed in the pilot position, with the pilot
lit, and the REMOTE/OFF/ON switch in the OFF position.
Replace the faulty thermopile if the reading is below the
specified minimum.
30369-8-0315
—With the pilot in the ON position, disconnect the thermopile
leads from the valve. Take a reading at the thermopile leads.
The reading should be 350 millivolts minimum. Replace
the thermopile if the reading is below the minimum.
c. Defective valve.
—Turn valve knob to ON. Place REMOTE/OFF/ON switch
to ON. Check with millivolt meter at thermopile terminals.
Millivolt meter should read greater than 200 millivolts. If
the reading is okay and the main burner does not ignite,
replace the gas valve.
d. Plugged main burner orifice.
—Check main burner orifice for blockage and remove.
4. Frequent pilot outage problem.
a. Pilot flame may be too high or too low, or blowing (high),
causing pilot safety to drop out.
—Clean and adjust flame for maximum flame impingement
on the thermocouple. Follow lighting instructions
carefully.
5.The pilot and main burner extinguish while in operation.
a. No LP (Propane) in tank.
Check LP (Propane) tank. Refill fuel tank.
b. Inner vent pipe leaking exhaust gases back into system.
—Check for leaks.
c. Glass too loose, gasket leaks in corners after usage.
—Be certain glass assembly is installed correctly.
d. Horizontal vent improperly pitched.
—The horizontal vent cap should slope down only enough
to prevent any water from entering the unit. The maximum
downwards slope is 1/4 inch.
e. Bad thermopile or thermocouple.
—Replace if necessary.
f. Improper vent cap installation.
—Check for proper installation and freedom from debris
or blockage.
6. Glass soots, and/or soot deposits collected internally.
a. Flame impingement on decorative glass.
—Check and adjust glass positioning. See Page 32. Contact
Empire Comfort Systems, Inc.
b. Debris around throat of main burner.
—Inspect the opening at the base of the main burner. It is
imperative that NO material be placed in this opening.
7. Flame burns blue and lifts off main burner.
a. Insufficient oxygen being supplied.

IPI ELECTRONIC SYSTEM OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
5.25 VDC ELECTRONIC CONTROL VALVE
The electronic control valve system includes the ability to switch
the pilot from a standing pilot mode to an intermittent pilot mode.
• IPI Mode - In the Intermittent Pilot mode, when the unit is
turned ON, it will cause spark to the pilot, light the pilot,
then allow the burner to light. When the unit is turned to
OFF, both the burner and pilot will be OFF.
• CPI Mode - In the Continuous Pilot mode, the pilot remains ON continuously even when the burner is turned
OFF.
Note: A small pilot selector switch is located on the module tray
that is used to switch from IPI (left position) to the CPI (right position). See Figure 23.
When the unit is turned to ON, the electrical current will energize
a spark to the pilot igniter. Once the pilot sensor heats up (after a
few seconds), the valve will be energized, allowing gas to flow to
the burner.
1. Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for Intermittent Pilot controls found in this manual, and on labels
found in the control compartment located in the lower cavity
of the appliance.
2. During the operating season (or in power outage periods), it is
recommended that the pilot remain in the CPI (standing pilot
mode) to reduce cold start issues, and/or conserve battery

INTERMITTENT PILOT CONTROL SYSTEM TROUBLESHOOTING
Brief Description of the Components
The gas valve is fitted with a manual HI/LO knob to allow for manual modulation of the gas outlet pressure to the appliance burner.
The controls are designed to be used with either LPG or Natural
Gas and can be converted by use of an OEM supplied conversion
kit.
The Digital Fireplace Control (DFC) is an automatic gas ignition
system based on a single microcontroller core. This control manages all functions related to ignition, flame sensing and supervision for atmospheric applications.
The DFC can be set to provide continuous or intermittent ignition
control sequences and flame monitoring with safety shutdown in
case of failure.
The DFC is set up as a stand alone (AC powered system with
battery back up. See Lighting Instructions on page 38 and Wiring
Diagram on page 37.
Troubleshooting
Before proceeding with the procedures in the following troubleshooting table, verify that the power supply (AC/DC adapter) is
present and that the batteries inside the receiver and/or optional
battery pack are fresh and installed with correct polarity.
Make sure all the connections between the wire harnesses and
system components are proper and positive.
Verify that the static inlet pressure meets the manufacturer’s recommended inlet pressure. If necessary adjust the line pressure
regulator.
If the recommended actions for the following troubleshooting chart
do not help to address the problem consider replacing wiring harnesses.
WARNING:
