the current edition of I.S.813 ‘Domestic Gas Installations’ and the current Building
Regulations.
In addition to the Standards detailed above the installation must comply with the current
IEE wiring regulations.
THE HEARTH.
The appliance must be fitted with a non-combustible hearth having a minimum thickness of
12mm (½"). The hearth must extend at least 300mm (12") in front and a minimum of
150mm (6") either side of any naked flame or incandescent radiant source. The periphery
of the hearth must be at least 50mm (2") above the floor level. (Under BS 5871, Part 2, the
installation of a fender of 50mm (2") high will satisfy this requirement.)
It is recommended that decorative frets have a minimum of 30cm2 (5 sq. in) of free air
space through the ash pan cover.
VENTILATION.
Subject to a satisfactory spillage test, there is no requirement for purpose made ventilation
into the room containing the appliance. (See Section 14)

FITTING THE FIREBOX
Measure the height of the hearth and make a mark on the wall at the same height.
Above the hearth level line, draw a rectangle 405mm (16") wide and 585mm (23") high.
Mark a horizontal line 483mm above hearth level and a vertical line on the centreline of the
fireplace (See figure 2). At this point drill a pilot hole through the cavity wall to the outside.
Cut away the plaster and the inner leaf of the brickwork to expose the outer leaf of the
cavity.
Screed the floor of the recess to the level of the hearth to allow accurate fitting of the
firebox.
Cut a hole through the cavity wall to accept the flue duct. The centre line for the duct is
483mm (19") above HEARTH level and the hole should measure 125mm x 125mm (See
Figure 2)
FIGURE 2

6
At this stage it is recommended that the fitting of the fireplace be completed before
proceeding with the installation of the fire but the gas supply must be routed to the
appliance before the fireplace is permanently fixed. The three-core mains cable must be
kept accessible.
With the flue spigot fitted, place the firebox into the recess. Mark a line on the flue duct
flush with the position of the outside wall. Depending on whether the fan is to be recessed,
semi-recessed or surface mounted, cut the duct to length as shown on Figure 3.
FIGURE 3

Push the firebox in to place and seal into the fireplace opening using the double-sided tape
supplied or alternatively a water based mastic sealant.
NOTE: If installing without the fireplace in position when determining the length of flue spigot
required allowance must be made for the depth of infill panel being used.
IMPORTANT: WHERE THE FLUE DUCT PASSES THROUGH A CAVITY WALL, IT IS
RECOMMENDED THAT IT SHOULD BE INSULATED ALL ROUND WITH A MATERIAL
SUCH AS ROCKWOOL. THIS WILL PREVENT ANY EXISTING WALL INSULATION
MATERIAL FROM COMING IN TO CONTACT WITH THE FLUE DUCT. (SEE FIGURE 4)
FIGURE 4

THE GAS SUPPLY.
The gas supply should be routed from the meter or cylinder and reduced to 8mm-diameter
pipe as close to the appliance as possible.
Route the 8mm pipe into the fire recess and through the knock out at the rear of the
firebox. Care should be taken to sleeve the pipe when passing through masonry.
Connect the pipe to the burner at the isolation/pressure test elbow using the nut and olive
provided.
When routing the gas supply pipe to the burner unit , soldered fittings must not be used
under the burner tray.
INSTALLING THE FAN BOX - RECESSED UNIT
Cut a rectangular hole in the external leaf of the brick wall to the dimensions shown in
Figure 5. Use the pilot hole drilled earlier (Para. 3.2) as the centre position of the flue duct.
Remove the fan box cover. Remove the 2 lower self tapping screws and loosen the 2 pan
head screws located in the key hole slots (See Figure 6) which hold the fan carrier to the
wall box and lift away the fan carrier assembly, together with it's gasket and place to one
side.
Feed the fan cable through the hole in the brickwork and leave a short length of cable
'hanging' in the opening made for the fan unit.
NOTE: CARE MUST BE TAKEN NOT TO DAMAGE THE TWO PLASTIC
CONNECTORS FITTED TO THE CABLE WHEN PULLING THEM THROUGH THE
6

HOLE. THESE CONNECTORS ARE FACTORY FITTED AND CANNOT BE REATTACHED ON SITE. GREAT CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN TO KEEP THE MULTICORE FAN CABLE CLEAR OF ANY
COMPONENTS LIKELY TO BECOME
HOT IN USE.
FIGURE 5
4
Fit the flue spigot to the fan box
using the three self-tapping screws
provided.
5
Insert the fan box in to the wall as
far as it will go and fix it in to place by
screwing out the 3 bolts (1 in the top, 2 in
the bottom) into the masonry to clamp the
box in position. Using the 3 bolts, adjust
the position of the box so that the fan box
duct surrounds equally on all four sides
the duct of the firebox.
Note: In some cases the 'frog' of the
brick may prevent the clamping bolts from
being able to be tightened fully. In this case the clamping plate supplied should be inserted
in the appropriate position and the clamping bolts tightened on to this.
Take the glass fibre rope-sealing gasket and push it into the gap between the flue duct and
the fan box spigot. The gasket can be pushed into the gap using a screwdriver but care
must be taken not to push the gasket in too far. It need only be pushed in to a point where
the edge of the gasket is level with the inner flue duct.
Secure the cable gland to its bracket on the fan carrier (See Figure 7) and then connect
the power cable using the 'Molex' snap connectors. Replace the fan carrier and its gasket
into the fan box and secure in place by locating the 'keyhole' slots over the pan head
screws at the rear of the box and using the two lower self tapping screws to secure the
bottom of the carrier in position. Finally tighten the two pan head screws. Any excess cable
should be pushed in to the cavity.
Run a bead of mastic around the frame of the wall box to ensure a water tight seal with the
brickwork.
Refit the wallbox cover.
FITTING THE SURFACE MOUNTING ADAPTER BOX
In cases where the fan unit is to be fitted on the surface of an outside wall an adapter box
will have to be fitted. The adapter box should be fitted after the hole for the flue duct has
been made. This will ensure correct alignment between the flue duct and the fan box.
Place the adapter box against the wall, ensuring it is correctly aligned with the flue spigot
and mark the position of the four fixing holes on the wall (See Figures 3 & 8) Drill and plug
the wall in the appropriate positions. Remove the four M5 screws at the rear of the box and
retain for use later.

NOTE: ON BOTH RECESSED AND SURFACE MOUNTED FAN UNITS THE FAN COVER
ALSO ACTS AS THE TERMINAL GUARD AND IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FIT ANY
ADDITIONAL GUARD.
Cut a slit in the grommet at the rear of the box and feed through the power cable, ensuring
that the connecting plugs are protected against damage.
Place the adapter box against the wall and screw into position.
Remove the front cover from the fan unit and withdraw the inner fan chassis, as previously
described. Remove the four blanking plugs from the rear of the fan box and discard.
Cut a slit in the grommet at the rear of the fan unit (not the side grommet) and feed
through the power cable. Push the fan unit into the adapter unit and secure in place using
the four M5 screws provided.
Fit the gasket, connect the power cable and refit the fan chassis as previously described.
Seal the edges where the two boxes meet with silicon mastic.
FITTING THE SEMI-RECESSED FAN SPACER
1
In cases where there is insufficient room to
recess the fan unit into the wall the fan spacer will
have to be fitted. This spacer mounts the fan partially
FIGURE 7
out of the wall so that the spigot does not protrude
into the cavity.
2
Place the spacer against the wall, ensuring it is
correctly aligned with the flue duct and mark the
position of the four fixing holes on the wall (See
Figure 7) Drill and plug the wall at these positions.
Check that the spacer is the correct way up and fix it
to the wall. The spacer is the correct way up when
the internal box section with two holes is at the
bottom.
3
Remove the front cover from the fan unit and
withdraw the inner fan chassis, as previously
described. Remove the three large screws from the
top and bottom of the fan box and discard.
Cut a slit in the grommet at the rear of the fan unit (not the side grommet) and feed
through the power cable. Push the fan unit into the spacer and secure in place using the
three self-tapping screws and washers screws provided. The self tapping screws should
pass through the bushes from which the large screws were removed.
Fit the gasket, connect the power cable and refit the fan chassis as previously described.
Seal the edges where the two boxes meet and where the spacer meets the wall with
silicon mastic.
ADDITIONAL DUCTING AND BENDS
Additional lengths of ducting and bends are available to use with this product. Sufficient
jointing sleeves and wall brackets are supplied with each length and elbow. These items
are assembled as shown in Figure 8. Up to four metres of ducting together with three
bends may be used.

FITTING THE BURNER UNIT
Check that the ignition system functions correctly. Push in the control valve and operate
the piezo ignition mechanism and check that a spark is generated at the pilot burner. If no
spark is evident, check the connections and the soundness of the leads.
Check tightness of nuts at the control-valve end of the thermocouple. CAUTION: Do not
over-tighten.
Plug the connector on the solenoids on the underside of the burner unit to the mating plug
on the switch panel of the fire. (See Figure 9)
Place the burner tray in position within the firebox. The tabs on either side of the rear of
the burner should be pushed on to the brackets on the firebox and then the burner fixed in
place using the screw in the centre of the fascia panel.
Connect the gas supply pipe to the fire using the nut and olive provided. Ensure that the
gas line is purged before connecting the pipe, as any debris left in the pipe will cause the
appliance to malfunction if it enters the controls.

The electrical connection to the mains supply may be made via either a fused spur or an
unswitched three-pin socket and plug. The supply must be fitted with a 3A fuse.
The appliance is supplied with 2.5 metres of three-core mains cable pre- wired. This
should be routed to the power point as inconspicuously as possible - i.e. chased into the
plaster.
The electrical connections to the switches are all pre-wired and the only other connections
required are in the fan box, which are explained in section 5 of these instructions.
GAS SOUNDNESS CHECK.
Once the correct operation of the controls has been proved a gas soundness test must be
carried out in accordance with BS 6891.
TESTING THE OPERATION OF THE FAN
The following procedure tests the correct operation of the fan and pressure switch.
Connect the electrical mains supply to the appliance, turn on the gas supply and switch on
the fire.
From outside, block the flue opening on the fan unit. Initially the fan should be heard to
speed up to try and over come the blockage. After about 5 seconds the fan will switch off.
Remove the blockage, return indoors and check that the fire has gone out. The system
can now be restarted.
FITTING THE CERAMIC COMPONENTS
WARNING.
This product uses fuel effect pieces containing Refractory Ceramic Fibre (RCF),
which are man-made vitreous silicate fibres along with fibrous glass and mineral
wool. Excessive exposure to these materials may cause temporary irritation to
eyes, skin and respiratory tract, consequently, it makes sense to take care when
handling these articles to ensure that the release of dust is kept to a minimum.
CAUTION All the ceramic components are fragile and should be handled with
care.
Fit the ceramic pieces as shown in Figure 10.
FIGURE 11
FIGURE 10
Laying the Coals (Coal only models)
10
200646_01
With reference to Figure 11, lay the coals in position as follows:ROW A
Place the five large coals across the centre ceramic keeping them between the
ridges. The coals should be positioned so they are equally spaced.
ROW B
Place five medium coals directly on top of the five large coals and resting on the
upper rear ceramic.
ROW C
Place seven random coals along the top of the front slotted ceramic. The coals
should be positioned so they are touching and that they do not overhang the rear
of the slotted area.
ROW D
Place a row of six random coals between the seven front coals and the five large
coals.
ROW E
Place a row of five random coals along the back of the firebox resting half on the
upper rear ceramic and half on Row B. The two outer coals should be pushed well
into the corners of the firebox.
ROW F
Place another row of five random coals FIGURE 12
directly in the front of Row E resting
partly on Row B and partly Row D.
Laying the Coals & Pebbles (Pebble models)
With Reference to Figure 12, lay the coals and
pebbles as follows:ROW A.
Place a row of five large coals, spaced
approximately 5mm apart, across the
middle of the base ceramic in the
marked zone.
ROW B.
Place a row of five medium coals so that
they rest on top of the coals of ROW A and rest firmly against the rear ceramic.
ROW C.
Place five large pebbles along the top of the raised slotted part of the base
ceramic at the front of the burner. These pebbles should be positioned so that
they are touching.
ROW D.
Place a row of four large pebbles between the five front pebbles and the five large
coals.
ROW E.
Place a row of three large pebbles along the top of the rear ceramic. Fill the gaps
along this row with three small pebbles.
Please Note.
Depending on how the pebbles actually lay in the fire some flames may impinge on the
surface of some pebbles and cause soot marking. This is quite normal and the soot may
be cleaned off when the fire is cold (see Servicing section) but a permanent stain may be
left on the surface. This problem can be minimised by gently twisting some pebbles with
tongs to move them away from the tips of the flames which is where the soot marking may
occur.
14 ADJUSTMENT OF COALS / CERAMICS.
1
Relight the appliance and allow to burn for 10-12 minutes.
2
Check the flame pattern and ensure that it is regular and natural looking. Using a pair of
tongs, adjust the coals or pebbles to regularise the pattern of flames. Even small
adjustments to the positions of the coals adds greatly to the realism.
15 CHECK FOR SPILLAGE.
1
Before briefing the customer on how to use the appliance, a spillage test must be carried
out with the decorative fret in position and the fan running. The following procedure must
be followed.

20
Close all doors and windows in the room or space containing the appliance.
Light the appliance and burn at maximum for 5 minutes.
Light a smoke match and pass completely along the top front edge of the opening (25mm
down and 25mm inside). A visual check should ascertain that all the smoke generated is
drawn back into the flue.
DECORATIVE TRIMS
Place one of the four magnets supplied in each corner of the front frame of the fire. Place
the trim in place. The magnets will ensure it is held in position.
When fitting chrome or brass trims, carefully remove the protective plastic covering from
the outside of the brass trim before fitting.
THE ELECTRONIC FAN CONTROLLER.
The fan unit is fitted with an electronic control unit that monitors the behaviour of the fan
during the start up procedure and in the event of high gusts of wind. When the fan is
switched on the controller will set it to run at high speed until the air pressure switch
senses a satisfactory amount of airflow. Once the airflow has been proved the fan will slow
down to its operating speed. If a high gust of wind causes the pressure switch to return to
the 'no air' position, the controller will switch over to the high speed setting to overcome
the wind. The pressure switch will then switch back and the controller will return the fan to
its operating speed. In the event of the gust of wind being more persistent, the controller
will maintain the fan at high speed for approximately 6 seconds. If the pressure switch has
not sensed a return of airflow in this time the controller will shut down the whole system. In
this event the fire will go out and will only relight if the ON switch on the switch panel is
pressed. When first switched on the fan may 'pulse' between high and low operating
speed settings. This is normal providing the fan runs at a steady speed after 5 - 10
minutes of use with the fire alight.
COLD WEATHER PROBLEMS
In freezing conditions the fire maybe very slow to light. After switching the fan on there
may be a delay of between five and ten minutes before the fire will light. In these
conditions the fan will turn quite sluggishly until the fan motor has warmed and increased
speed sufficiently to generate enough airflow to activate the pressure switch. Leaving the
pilot alight may allow a small amount of heat to pass to the fan, which will help to shorten
the warm up period.
If the fire still refuses to light, contact your supply.
BRIEFING THE USER.
Demonstrate the full operation of the appliance to the user, referring them specifically to
the lay of the coals / pebbles and removal of soot, as described in the user instructions.
Explain about the odour given off by the coals / pebbles, as described in Section 12.
Inform the user that all cleaning procedures should be carried out ONLY when the
appliance is cold.
Leave these instructions, and the user's instructions, with the user.
Advise the importance of having the appliance serviced and the fan unit checked for
clearance of combustion products on an annual basis.
TIMBERED FRAMED BUILDINGS
If any doubt arises regarding the installation into a timber framed building, guidance can be
found in Document IGE/UP/7 (available from the institute of Gas Engineers). If any further
information is required the manufacturer should be contacted.

FAULT SYMPTOMS
Your Power Flue Fire is designed and manufactured to give many years of trouble free
operation. In the unlikely event of any component failure or installation problem the
appliance will restore to a "fail-safe" condition. However, faults can be caused by situations
other than component failure and we strongly recommend that you consider the following
points when using your fire.
Since the air supply for the fire is drawn by a fan and extracted to the outside air along with
the spent products of combustion, it is inevitable that fluff, lint and even pet hairs could
stick to the fan blades in the flue system. Without regular cleaning during maintenance
checks this build up could slow down the fan to an extent that it may cause the flue flow
safety device to shut down the gas supply to the fire. This "nuisance" shut down can be
avoided by observing the servicing and maintenance recommendations in the Installation
Manual.
The fan unit is fitted with an electronic control unit that monitors the behaviour of the fan
during the start up procedure and in the event of high gusts of wind. When the fan is
switched on, the controller will set it to run at high speed until the air pressure switch
senses a satisfactory amount of air flow. Once the air flow has been proved the fan will
slow down to its operating speed. If a high gust of wind causes the pressure switch to
return to the 'no air' position, the controller will switch over to the high speed setting to
overcome the wind. The pressure switch will then switch back and the controller will return
the fan to its operating speed. In the event of the gust of wind being more persistent, the
controller will maintain the fan at high speed for approximately 6 seconds. If the pressure
switch has not sensed a return of airflow in this time the controller will shut down the whole
system. In this event the fire will go out and will only relight if the ON switch on the switch
panel is pressed.
When first switched on the fan may 'pulse' between the high and low operating speeds.
This is normal providing the fan runs at a steady speed after 10 -15 minutes of use with
the fire alight.

USEFUL TIPS & RECOMMENDATIONS
The installation of this appliance must be carried out by a competent person, and in
accordance with the requirements of the GAS SAFETY (INSTALLATION AND USE)
REGULATIONS.
As with any fire, certain components will become hot in use e.g. the decorative front fret.
Care should be exercised when using the controls of the appliance when it is hot. We
also recommend that a fireguard, conforming to BS 6539 or BS 6778, be fitted for the
protection of young children, the elderly or infirm.
When new, the ceramic coals may produce a slight odour, but this will completely vanish
after a few hours of use.
Handle coals gently. They are fragile. A soft brush can be used to clean them of any
excess soot. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should coals, pebbles or ceramics be
washed.
Never throw cigarette ends or other foreign matter onto the fire.
Never leave the house unattended, with the fire alight.
Check periodically that any purpose made ventilation is free from obstruction.
To obtain the best results from your fire, we recommend that the fire be serviced
annually.
These instructions are provided to assist you to operate the fire correctly and should be
kept in a safe place.
This appliance is intended for decorative purposes.
This appliance is fitted with a flue blockage device that will shut off the appliance in the
event of abnormal flue conditions. This device is NOT a substitute for an independently
mounted carbon monoxide detector.
During the summer, when the appliance is not in use, we recommend that it be turned on
from time to time to get the fan running and some air passing across the electronic
controls. Fires which have been left inoperative throughout the summer months may
exhibit fault conditions but these are often caused by a lack of use.
OPERATION OF YOUR APPLIANCE
It should be noted that your fire is fitted with a Flame Supervision Device which cuts off
the gas supply to your fire if for any reason the pilot light is extinguished. It also monitors
constantly the oxygen in the room. The pilot flame heats the thermocouple probe and
allows gas to flow to the burners. If due to pilot failure, the thermocouple cools, no gas
will flow to the main burner. If the fire is turned off or the flames go out, wait for AT
LEAST 3 MINUTES before attempting to relight the fire.
2
When the fire is first lit, the flames tend to be rather blue in colour. Once the core of the
fire becomes hot, the flames will become yellow and more lifelike. During this initial
warm-up period it is recommended that the control remains in the ‘MAX’ position. This
permits the fire to reach its optimum condition more quickly.

Read carefully the LIGHTING THE APPLIANCE for the relevant model in section 9 of
these instructions

LIGHTING THE APPLIANCE (See Figures 13 and 14)
Turn the gas at the isolating elbow and switch on the electrical mains supply.
Turn the ON/OFF switch on the control panel at the bottom of the fire to the ON position.
Press the START switch, the fan will start and after a short period of time a “click” will be
heard from underneath the burner unit. This is the solenoid valve opening.
FIGURES
13 & 14
3
Push in and turn the control knob (see figure 13) anti-clockwise to the ‘PILOT’ position &
hold in for several seconds to purge any air from the system. If the fire has not been
used for some time or is new this may take half a minute or more as the air can only
purge through the very small orifice in the pilot burner injector. During this purge time
you can try lighting the pilot burner (see next paragraph) every ten seconds or so but
after each attempt remember to return the control knob to the ‘pilot’ position and keep it
depressed.
4
Lighting the pilot burner is done by turning the control knob, still depressed, from the
‘OFF’ position to the ‘PILOT’ position when the spark generator will be heard to ‘click’ as
a spark is produced which should light the pilot burner. If the pilot does not light try again
after a few seconds. The pilot may not light at the first attempt. Waiting a few seconds
gives the spark generator time to recover.
5
Once the pilot burner is alight continue to depress the control knob for a further 10 – 15
seconds and then release. The pilot should stay alight. If it goes out repeat the process,
only this time keeping the control knob depressed for a slightly longer period.
6
Depress the control knob and turn anti-clockwise to the MAX position. The main burner
will now light at the high rate.
7
Turn the knob to the MIN setting, the flame height will be seen to reduce.
8
To turn the main burner off, but leave the pilot alight, turn the knob clockwise to the
PILOT position.
9
To turn the main burner main burner off completely, turn the knob clockwise to the OFF
position.
10
To turn the fan off, turn the ON/OFF switch on the control panel at the bottom of the fire
to the OFF position.

CLEANING YOUR FIRE
Ensure that the fire is cold before undertaking any cleaning. Remember the heat is
retained for some time after the fire is switched off. In normal use, your fire requires only
minimal cleaning. Soot can form on the coals and / or pebbles and can easily be removed
by lifting the relevant pieces from the fire and cleaning with a soft brush.

28
If it is necessary to remove all coals / pebbles for cleaning then any soot or debris should
be removed from the ceramic elements and from the burners. A vacuum cleaner must not
be used on the ceramic pieces.
If large pieces of debris are found in the fire - sufficient to alter the appearance or
operation of the appliance - the fan unit should be checked and inspected and the
appliance serviced before further use.
In any event, the flue and fan system should be checked annually to ensure continued
clearance of combustion products and that there is no excessive build up of soot.
The decorative trim on the front of the fire is held in place with magnets. Should you wish
to clean the trim, simply pull it off of the fire, clean using a slightly dampened cloth and
then replace, ensuring that one magnet is positioned in each corner. The Brass & Chrome
trims have a lacquered finish—Do not use metal polishes to clean.
ASSEMBLING THE FIRE AND LAYING CERAMICS COALS / PEBBLES
When laying the ceramics & coals / pebbles on the burner, closely follow the instructions
found on pages 11 - 12 of these instructions. Failure to do so will possibly cause the
appliance to burn incorrectly giving rise to sooting and poor heat output.
