Safety and Environmental Testing
The H530 Inserts have been tested by OMNI-Test Laboratories, Inc. of
Portland, Oregon and are listed to UL 1482 and ULC S628. They are
also EPA certified.
Features and Items Included
Your H530 has a built in convection system, so it creates air
circulation in the room to spread the heat faster and more evenly.
The stove has a small "cool" handle, which enables you to open the
door without the use of a glove (however, always use caution when
touching areas where HOT surfaces are located).
Included with the insert (in the firebox) are:
• Flue collar with a 45° elbow (to connect to stove/pipe)
• An oven mitt
• A easy to use lighter
• A can of touch-up paint (Remove from the stove!)

If utilizing an existing chimney, it is suggested that you have a
professional mason or stove installer do a complete check-up of your
chimney, liner, and flue.
In order for the stove to work and draw properly, sufficient air is
important! Be especially aware of any mechanical fans (e.g. kitchen
or bathroom) that may affect the proper draw.
In addition, make sure that the floor and sub-flooring is designed to
carry the extra weight of the insert.
The floor in front of the insert (if placed lower than 6.5 ” (16.5cm)
above ground) must be thermal protected by a minimum of ½ ” (1cm)
non-combustible material having a thermal conductivity of k=.84,

where k=(BTU)x(in.)/(hr)x(ft )x(°F) (based on 1 ” thickness). To
substitute alternate material, you need to know the k value of that
material. Use the following formula to calculate thickness of
alternate material (inches): k= (AlternateMaterial/.84).
To the front and the sides floor protector must extend as indicated
below. When installing the insert, the heat distribution to other
rooms should be taken into consideration. The H530 Insert has a
heating capacity of approximately 1,076 ft2 (100m2) based on a
standard ceiling height.

Chimney
The H530 insert must be installed using a code-approved masonry
chimney with a 6 ” (15cm) diameter flue liner, a zero-clearance
chimney, or a Class A UL-103 HT approved factory-built chimney
system.
The chimney must extend through the roof at least 3’ (1m), and 2’
(.6m) above any structure within 10’ (3m). The condition of the
chimney and height is very important. We suggest a total minimum
height of 10’ (3m). Consult a chimney expert with any questions.

First, make sure to secure the fireplace
damper in the open position (or remove the
damper). Then, have the chimney examined to
insure that it is safe for use (e.g. not too
large and no cracks), and some of the more
critical requirements are:
•
A minimum thickness of 4 ” (10cm) for brick or block and a 12 ”
(30cm) for a natural or rubble stone wall.
•
The 6 ” (15cm) chimney liner options include:
- A full stainless steel chimney liner (meeting ULC S635 CLASS
III standards) and securely attached to the insert and the
chimney top. This is required for Canada and recommended for
the United States.
- A fire clay flue liner that is at least 5/8” thick and
installed with refractory mortar.
- An equivalent listed chimney liner system or other approved
material.
•
A chimney inside the house must have a 2 ” (5cm) clearance to
combustibles, and an outside chimney must have at least a 1 ”
(2.5cm) clearance to a combustible structure. Fire stops must be
installed at spaces where the chimney passes through floors and/or
ceilings.
The H530 Insert is approved for installation in a masonry fireplace
or a metal firebox (heat exchanger) within a masonry chimney (based
on UL-907 listing) or for use in an approved factory-built zeroclearance fireplace (listed to UL-127). The clearance requirement is
a 2 ” (5cm) space between the insert and the back and sidewalls of
the zero-clearance box.

When installing into a masonry opening, it is suggested that you wrap
the insert with fiberglass or other non-combustible insulation for
better heat retention. Note that bricks and mortar should not be
removed from the existing fireplace unless first consulting the
Building Inspector or Fire Marshall. As a final note make sure that
the surround or shield around the insert seals the fireplace opening
to insure proper draft.

SENSIBLE WOOD BURNING
Proper wood burning
When dry wood is burned in a wood-burning stove the following process
occurs (over a period of approx. 1 hour):
- After lighting the log starts to dry and heats up.
- After drying the temperature of wood rises to approx. 300–400°F
(150-200°C) and is converted into combustible gases/charcoal.
- As the wood is gasified a certain portion of the gases produced
burn and are converted into carbon dioxide and water. During this
phase the temperature rises to around 1100-1500°F (600-800°C) and
a plentiful supply of air is required. If the air supply is
accidentally reduced, the flames will be smothered, but this will
not stop the conversion of the wood into gas. The unburned gas
will then flow out into the chimney, causing a nuisance outdoors
and build up of creosote.
- Next-charcoal will burn, which requires very little air supply.
Finally, new wood must be laid on the glowing charcoal cinders.
Warnings - It is extremely important to ensure that you
do not overheat your stove, as this can cause irreparable
damage. This kind of damage is not covered by the
warranty. Extremely high combustion temperatures can
occur when using inappropriate fuel, such as kiln-dried
wood, coal, pressure-treated wood, scrap wood.
NEVER USE GASOLINE, GASOLINE-TYPE LANTERN FUEL, KEROSENE, CHARCOAL
LIGHTER FLUID, OR SIMILAR LIQUIDS TO START OR ‘FRESHEN UP’ A FIRE IN
THIS HEATER. KEEP ALL SUCH LIQUIDS WELL AWAY FROM THE HEATER WHILE IT
IS IN USE.
HOT WHILE IN OPERATION. KEEP CHILDREN, CLOTHING AND FURNITURE AWAY.
CONTACT MAY CAUSE SKIN BURNS.
DO NOT STORE SOLID FUEL WITHIN HEATER INSTALLATION CLEARANCES OR
WITHIN THE SPACE REQUIRED FOR FIRE LIGHTING AND ASH REMOVAL.
Incorrect wood burning
Too much air supplied to the combustion process causes an
uncontrollable fire that will heat the entire stove very rapidly to
an extremely high temperature. This can happen if you fire with
Version: 10/09
Page 7
conditions that produce an extra-strong draft in the chimney. Never
fill the stove completely with wood. It is better to heat a stove up
slowly. This will prevent damage to welds and annealing of the iron.
Overfilling the firebox also substantially reduces the useful life of
the vermiculite panels, as cracks are more easily caused. The log
size should be about 2” (5cm) less than the width of the firebox.
Start slowly with a “ normal ” fire from the bottom, and slowly build
it up to a maximum of three logs.
Technical information on wood burning
1 kilo of dry wood is made up of 20% water, with the remaining 80%
divided into 60% gas and 20% charcoal. The 60% gas only contains
around half the energy content of the wood, while the 20% charcoal
contains the other half. To achieve optimum combustion, the
temperature must reach 1100-1500°F (600-800°C).
Reload with a few pieces of wood at a time. If too much wood is
placed on a layer of embers, the air supplied will not be sufficient
to attain the required temperature, and the gases will disappear out
through the chimney unburned. It is vital to supply air to the fire
immediately after adding fuel, so there are flames in the firebox,
and the gases burn. Remember that three logs will burn just as
quickly as one. The quantity of firewood determines the heat emission
- the more heat you require, the more wood you should add at each
refueling.
Types of fuel and heating values
Combustion involves conversion of the fuel from solid form into
gases, water vapor and charcoal. The heating value is an expression
of the content of combustible gases - stated in kcal/kg. All wood has
roughly the same heating value per kilogram. The lighter the wood,
the more that must be used to achieve the same heating value as with
a heavier species of wood.

As mentioned, air-dried wood contains around 20% water, corresponding
to a heating value of approx. 4 kWh/kg equivalent to approx. 3440
kcal/kg (1kW = 860 kcal).
Warning! NEVER burn treated/painted wood, laminated
plastic, plywood, chipboard, refuse, milk cartons,
printed matter or similar. Use of such materials will
invalidate your warranty, as this may emit toxic,
corrosive and hazardous fumes when burned. They may also
cause a build-up of the toxic gas dioxin, which is
damaging to the stove and the environment.
Version: 10/09
Page 8
Fuel
Recently-felled wood contains 60-70% water and
must therefore be seasoned before it can be used
in a wood burning stove. It must be cut, split
and air dried, and must contain no more than
approx. 25% water before use. This equates to the
wood being left in the open for approx. 1 year covered only to protect against rain.
It is very important to always use dry wood. Damp wood requires a
lot of air for combustion, as extra energy in the form of heat is
needed to dry it out. Heat emission is therefore minimal.
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and
other organic vapors, which combine with expelled
moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors
condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a
slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue
accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited,
this creosote makes an extremely hot fire. The
chimney and chimney connector should be inspected
at least once every two months during the heating
season to determine if a creosote buildup has
occurred. If creosote has accumulated, it should
be removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
First Fire
Once your insert is installed and all instructions have been read,
the first fire can be started. However, please take careful note of
the following:
- Your new insert should be broken in gently for top performance
and to prevent paint damage, cracks in the vermiculite or
firebox lining, and excessive wear and tear.
- The baffle plate and vermiculite panels may crack under hard
impact. These are not covered by the warranty, so avoid tossing
the wood in the firebox.
- Avoid touching the metal during initial fires, as the paint is
hardening at this stage. Otherwise this may mar the paint.
It is a good idea to ensure effective ventilation during the first
firing, as the stove will generate smoke and an odor of paint. The
smoke and paint odor will dissipate after about 1 hour’s operation
and is not hazardous to health.
Do not use a grate or elevate the fire – build wood fire directly on
hearth.
Version: 10/09
Page 9
Lighting the stove
1. Make sure the air vent is in the fully open position (move the
handle to the left as shown by the wide end of a triangle).
2. Add crumbled paper / firelighters and kindling wood to the
bottom of the fire box (combustion chamber).
3. The kindling (about 3 lbs or 1.5 kg) is to be built up
crosswise.
4. Light the fire.
5. The door should be ajar for a couple of minutes during the
lighting phase.
6. Once the flames have taken a good hold of the kindling, the door
can be shut.
7. The air vent should be adjusted down toward the right after
approx. 10 minutes (primary air); how much depends on the
chimney draft - however, the air supply must be diminished to
the point where you obtain steady and calm flames.
Once there is a good bed of embers in the stove, you
can add wood. It is important not to open the door
while there are flames in the stove, as this may cause
smoke to flow out into the room. Add wood on the basis
of your heating requirements. However, never add more
than 4.4 lbs or 2 kg of wood every 1.5–2 hours. Please
remember that the exterior surfaces especially the top
and front of the stove in particular will become very
hot during burning.
Refueling
1. Open the air vent to the maximum (to the left).
2. To minimize the back draft, the door should be ajar for about
one minute before you open it completely.
3. Open the door slowly.
4. Add 2 – 3 pieces of firewood to the combustion chamber.
5. Close the door.
6. Turn down the air supply (toward the right) when the fire has
caught the wood, to obtain steady and calm flames.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Combustion problems can arise if the combustion conditions are not
optimal. This can be corrected by following the advice given below.
Lighting and burning problems are usually due to wet wood
or insufficient draft.
Version: 10/09

MAINTENANCE
Gaskets and vermiculite panels are parts which need to be replaced
from time to time – depending on how much you use your stove. In some
cases, you may need to replace them every year, while in others,
replacement every second or third year will suffice. As a rule of
thumb, gaskets need to be replaced when it has become flattened and
the door no longer fits tightly against the front of the stove. You
can purchase gaskets – with adhesive – from your local dealer.
The vermiculite panels must be replaced when they have worn thin, or
when cracks – if any – become so wide that you can actually see steel
through them. If the panels are not replaced at such time, they will
lose their capacity to insulate and reflect heat.
Use only authentic spare parts!
Movable and mechanical parts (closing mechanisms, hinges etc) should
be greased once a year with a heat-resistant lubricant.
You should have your stove checked regularly by a qualified
professional to ensure the optimal function of the stove at all
times. Do not modify the insert, since any unauthorized changes to
the design of the stove will also invalidate the stove guarantee and
test results.
Replacing the gasket on the door
1. Remove the gasket from the inside edge of the door and clean the
sealing track (there is no need to remove the door from the
stove).
2. Apply a layer of fire-resistant adhesive to the track where the
old gasket was affixed.
3. Press (while stretching it out) the new gasket into the track.
4. Close the door and let the adhesive set for approx. 1 day before
opening the door again. If the adhesive has not hardened
sufficiently before the door is opened again, the gasket may
fall out.
Replacing the gasket on the glass
1. Open the door.
2. On the inside of the door, in each corner of the glass panel,
there is a fastening that must be loosened so that each fitting
can be turned away from the glass panel.
3. Repeat this procedure for all the fittings and remove the glass
panel.
4. Remove the old strip from the glass panel.
5. Fit a new gasket around the glass panel.
To replace the glass panel, simply reverse the process described
above.
Disoposal of ashes
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight fitting lid.
The closed container of ashes should be placed on a noncombustible
floor or on the ground, well away from all combustible materials,
pending final disposal. If the ashes are disposed of by burial in
Version: 10/09
Page 12
soil or otherwise locally dispersed, they should be retained in the
closed container until all cinders have thoroughly cooled.
Creosote – formation and need for removal
Refer to the Section on Fuel on Page 9. Insure there is sufficient
air supply to avoid incomplete combustion and formation of creosote.
Interior cleaning
Make sure it is possible to access the chimney for sweeping and
cleaning.
7.
