2. INSTALLATION
PRECAUTION
IF YOUR SCAN STOVE IS NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED, OPERATED AND MAINTAINED, A
HOUSE FIRE MAY RESULT. FOR YOUR SAFETY, FOLLOW ALL INSTALLATION, OPERATION
AND MAINTENANCE DIRECTIONS. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL BUILDING OFFICIALS ABOUT
RESTRICTIONS AND INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS IN YOUR AREA.
Pre Installation Check List:
Before you begin an installation, review your plans, check to see:
1. Your stove and chimney connector will be far enough from combustible material to meet all
clearance requirements.
2. The floor protection is large enough and is constructed properly to meet all requirements.
3. You have all necessary permits from local authorities. Your local building official is the final
authority for approving your installation as safe and determining that it meets all local and state
building and safety codes.
The metal label permanently attached to the back of every SCAN stove shows that it has been tested
to current UL and ULC safety standards, and gives the name of the testing laboratory. Clearance and
installation information is also printed on the label. Local authorities will generally accept the label as
evidence that, when the stove is installed according to the information on the label and in this manual,
the installation meets codes and can be approved.
Codes vary in different areas. Before starting the installation, review your plans with the local building
authority. Your local dealer can provide any additional information needed.
For any unresolved questions about installation in the USA, refer to the national Fire Protection
Association’s publication ANSI/NFPA 211 Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents and Solid Fuel
Burning Appliances. For installation in Canada, refer to CSA CAN-B365, Installation Code for Solid
Fuel Burning Applications and Equipment. These standards are the basis for many national codes.
They are nationally recognized and are accepted by most local authorities. Your local dealer or your
local building official may have a copy of these regulations.
WARNING: Check all local building and safety codes before installation. The installation instructions
and appropriate code requirements must be followed exactly and without compromise. Alterations to
the stove are not allowed. Do not connect the stove to a chimney system serving another stove,
appliance or any air distribution duct. Failure to follow these instructions will void the manufacturers
warranty.
NOTE: If you plan to vent your stove into an existing masonry chimney, have the chimney inspected
by a local fire marshal or qualified installer. Remember that the chimney and its location on the roof
heavily influent on the stove performance. An oversized flue may not provide effective draught and a
flue liner may be required. (Observe draft requirements). Consult your dealer or qualified installer
before final selection is made.
We advise you to leave enough room to enable cleaning between the stove and the wall.

The floor
One of the main necessary precautions when installing a wood stove is to leave sufficient space
between the stove (top, sides, back, front, and under stove pipes) and any other material that can
catch fire.
If the stove is to be installed on a combustible floor, it must be placed on a non-combustible hearth
pad, which extends 8” (200mm measured from the legs) beyond the stove sides and back, and 18”
(455mm measured from side and back panels) to the front
NOTE: the floor protection need's only to be a standard ember protection.

Draft Requirements:
Scan 5.2 is only one component of the total system. The venting system is equally important for
achieving the required flow of combustion air to the firebox and for safely removing unwanted
combustion byproducts from the appliance. If the venting system’s design does not promote these
ends, the system may not function properly. Poorly functioning venting systems may create
performance problems as well as be a safety hazard (i.e. an oversized chimney may result in less than
optimum performance. Installations into a large, masonry chimney may require a liner to improve
performance). A draft test should read greater than .04" W.C. (Inches Water Column) and less than
.08" W.C. The table below shows dimension of connection piece and data for draft requirements for
the stove:

The chimney draught depends on the weather conditions. In stormy weather, you may reduce the
chimney draught by closing the damper in the smoke pipe (if a damper has been installed). If the
chimney draught is strong, the combustion air supply must be reduced additionally.
Chimney Installation:
DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY FLUE SERVING ANOTHER APPLIANCE. DO
NOT CONNECT TO ANY AIR DISTRIBUTION DUCT OR SYSTEM.
SCAN 5.2 is listed for installation as a vertically top or rear vented stove using a listed class A
(UL103HT) for Canada (CAN/ULC-S629) factory built chimney exiting through the ceiling/attic/roof.
The inside diameter of the chimney, connector pipe must not be smaller than 6” (152 cm) diameter.
Single wall 24 gauge MSG (0.58 – 0.71 mm) and adapter must not be smaller than 6” (152 mm), may
be used in the room where the stove is installed, follow the chimney manufacturer’s instruction for
installation of chimney and chimney adapter. In Canada, where passage through wall, or partition of
combustible construction is desired, the installation shall conform to CAN/CSA B365.
Factory Built Chimney
When a metal prefabricated chimney is used, the manufacturer’s installation instructions must be
followed. You must also purchase (from the same manufacturer) and install the ceiling support
package or wall pass-through and “T” section package, fire stops (where needed), insulation shield,
roof flashing, chimney cap, etc. Maintain proper clearance to the structure as recommended by the
manufacturer. The chimney must be the required height above the roof or other obstructions for
safety and proper draft operation. See page 11 for chimney termination requirements.
Masonry Chimney
Ensure that a masonry chimney meets the minimum standards of the National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) by having it inspected by a professional. Make sure there are no cracks, loose
mortar or other signs of deterioration and blockage. Have the chimney cleaned before the stove is
installed and operated. When connecting the stove through a combustible wall to a masonry chimney,
special methods are needed. Refer to Combustible Wall Chimney Connector Pass-Throughs on page
10 and 11.

Top vent installation
Mounting of the flue collar for top vent.
Turn the flue collar around and fix the brackets under the top plate.
Tighten the two screws with the delivered hexagon spanner (tighten well)
Required installation components:
• Chimney cap
• Insulated chimney
• Storm collar
• Roof flashing
• Ceiling support box or joist
shield/fire stop spacer
• Chimney connector pipe
• Chimney connector adapter
9
Chimney connection
The chimney connector is a single walled pipe used to connect the stove to the chimney. For use with
the SCAN woodstoves the chimney connector MUST be 6” in diameter, with a minimum thickness of
24 gauge black steel or 26 gauge blued steel.
Aluminium and galvanized steel pipe is not acceptable for use with the SCAN woodstove. These
materials cannot withstand the extreme temperatures of a wood fire and can give off toxic fumes when
heated.
Do not use the connector pipe as a chimney.
Each chimney connector or stove pipe section must be installed to the stove flue collar and to each
other with the male (crimped) end toward the stove. See fig 5.
Fig. 5
This prevents any amount of condensed or liquid creosote from running down the outside of the pipe
or the stove top. All joints, including the flue collar connection must be secured with three sheet metal
screws to ensure that the sections do not separate.
For the best performance the chimney connector should be as short and direct as possible, with no
more than two 90° elbows. The maximum horizontal run is 36” and a recommended total length of
stove pipe should not exceed 10 feet. Always slope horizontal runs upward ¼” per foot toward the
chimney.
No part of the chimney connector may pass through an attic or roof space, closet or other concealed
space, or through a floor ceiling. All sections of the chimney connectors must be accessible for
cleaning. Where passage through a wall or partition of combustible construction is desired, the
installation must conform with NFPA 211 or CAN/CSA-B365, and is also addressed in this manual.
10
Rear vent installation:
For venting into a masonry or a back standing steel chimney through the top vent the top horizontal
portion of a single wall connector pipe can be located not closer than 18” below a combustible ceiling.
From the factory the stove is prepared for top mounting of the flue collar, but all SCAN stoves have an
optional flue outlet, therefore the flue collar can be fitted either on the top or at the rear as required.
Mounting the flue collar for rear outlet
Remove the cover plate on the rear of the stove
Remove the inner cover plate (cooking ring) by means of the hexagon spanner.
The flue collar is fitted from the outside into the discharge hole of the firebox in such a way that the
bracket is located on the inside.
Place the cooking ring on top so that this is level with the top plate.
Rear venting into a masonry or steel chimney through a thimble or other vent configuration than
descript here must follow local codes or NFPA 211 or CAN/CSA-B365 guidelines and methods.
Required installation components:
• Chimney cap
• Insulated chimney
• Tee section
• Tee support bracket
• Chimney connector pipe
• Wall thimble
• Wall strap

Combustible Wall Chimney Connector Pass-Throughs.
Method A. 12” (304.8 mm) Clearance to Combustible Wall
Member: Using a minimum thickness 3.5” (89 mm) brick and
a 5/8” (15.9 mm) minimum wall thickness clay liner, construct
a wall pass-through. The clay liner must conform to ASTM
C315 (Standard Specification for Clay Fire Linings) or its
equivalent. Keep a minimum of 12” (304.8 mm) of brick
masonry between the clay liner and wall combustibles. The
clay liner shall run from the brick masonry outer surface to the
inner surface of the chimney flue liner but not past the inner
surface. Firmly grout or cement the clay liner in place to the
chimney flue liner.
Method B. 9” (228.6 mm) Clearance to Combustible Wall
Member: Using a 6” (152.4 mm) inside diameter, listed
factory-built Solid-Pak chimney section with insulation of 1”
(25.4 mm) or more, build a wall pass-through with a minimum
9” (228.6 mm) air space between the outer wall of the
chimney length and wall combustibles. Use sheet metal
supports fastened securely to wall surfaces on all sides, to
maintain the 9” (228.6 mm) air space. When fastening
supports to chimney length, do not penetrate the chimney
liner (the inside wall of the Solid-Pak chimney). The inner
end of the Solid-Pak chimney section shall be flush with the
inside of the masonry chimney flue, and sealed with a nonwater soluble refractory cement. Use this cement to also seal
to the brick masonry penetration.
Method C. 6” (152.4 mm) Clearance to Combustible Wall
Member: Starting with a minimum 24 gage (.024” [.61 mm]) 6”
(152.4 mm) metal chimney connector, and a minimum 24
gage ventilated wall thimble which has two air channels of 1”
(25.4 mm) each, construct a wall pass-through. There shall
be a minimum 6” (152.4) mm separation area containing
fiberglass insulation, from the outer surface of the wall
thimble to wall combustibles. Support the wall thimble, and
cover its opening with a 24-gage minimum sheet metal
support. Maintain the 6” (152.4 mm) space. There should
also be a support sized to fit and hold the metal chimney
connector. See that the supports are fastened securely to
wall surfaces on all sides. Make sure fasteners used to
secure the metal chimney connector do not penetrate
chimney flue liner.
Method D. 2” (50.8 mm) Clearance to Combustible Wall
Member: Start with a solid-pak listed factory built chimney
section at least 12” (304 mm) long, with insulation of 1” (25.4
mm) or more, and an inside diameter of 8” (2 inches [51
mm] larger than the 6” [152.4 mm] chimney connector). Use
this as a pass-through for a minimum 24-gage single wall
steel chimney connector. Keep solid-pak section concentric
with and spaced 1” (25.4 mm) off the chimney connector by
way of sheet metal support plates at both ends of chimney
section. Cover opening with and support chimney section
on both sides with 24 gage minimum sheet metal supports.
See that the supports are fastened securely to wall surfaces
on all sides. Make sure fasteners used to secure chimney
flue liner
12
NOTES:
1. Connectors to a masonry chimney, excepting method B, shall extend in one continuous
section through the wall pass-through system and the chimney wall, to but not past the
inner flue liner face.
2. A chimney connector shall not pass through an attic or roof space, closet or similar
concealed space, or a floor, or ceiling.
Chimney height requirements:
The chimney must extend 3 feet above the level of roof penetration and a minimum of 2 feet higher
than any roof surface within 10 feet. Check with your local building officials for additional requirements
for your area.
The condition of the chimney and height is very important; we suggest a total minimum height of 15’
(4,5m). Measured From the floor level on which the stove is installed.

3. INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Ash Drawer:
The ash drawer located below the fuel door is designed to make cleaning easier by containing the
ashes in a removable drawer. Replace ceramic packing cord as necessary to ensure a tight seal.
CAUTION: Do not operate the stove with the ash drawer open or ajar, as this will produce extreme
temperatures within the stove (over-firing) as could result in a house fire. Damage caused from overfiring is not covered under the manufacturers limited warranty
Ash Grate:
Above the ash drawer, located in the floor of the firebox is a rotating ash grate to facilitate transferring
ashes from the firebox into the ash drawer. To operate this grate, pull and push the loop handle on the
right hand side of the ash drawer face in and out several times. Operate stove only with the loop
handle pushed all the way in.
Baffle Plates:
The SCAN stove has three baffle plate that must be installed in the upper firebox. When in the proper
position, the rear edges of the baffle plates should touch the back wall of the firebox. See the
maintenance section of this manual for additional information on removing baffle plates for cleaning
and for drawings of fire box inclusive of baffle plates of the stove (see page 16-17).
Ceramic baffle plates are delivered with all SCAN stoves. When mounting a baffle plate place it
according to the description in section 5: Removing Baffle for Cleaning. Make sure that it is placed
symmetrically in the stove, i.e. with even amounts of free air space on each side.
We recommend that you treat the ceramic baffle plates (Skamol) with caution because it is a delicate
material (not covered by the limited warranty). It is extremely heat resistant.
Glass:
The glass is a heat resistance ceramic glass that can withstand continuous temperatures up to 1390°F
(754°C). This temperature is well beyond the temperatures in which you operate your stove.
This stove is designed to provide a flow of air over the inside of the glass. This air combined with high
temperatures helps keep the glass optimally clean when the combustion air intake is fully opened.
When operating the stove on low for extended periods of time, the glass may become dirty. A short,
hot fire will help clean off much of the normal sooth buildup (see section 6: Troubleshooting). In order
to keep glass soot free the moisture content of the wood must be between 15 and 18% on a wet basis.
Smoke Detectors:
Since there are always several potential sources of fire in any home, we recommend installing smoke
detectors. Do not install them too close to the stove as heat can activate them.
Room Ventilation:
During the combustion, oxygen taken from the room air is used. In rare cases it may be necessary to
mount a fresh-air duct on the stove. Please refer to your local building codes.
Fire Bricks:
Little cracks may arise in the firebricks because of a minor content of water, especially if the stove is
overheated during the first fire. These cracks do not influence the workability of the stove and are not
covered by the limited warranty.
14
Ceramic Packing Cord:
The stoves are equipped with ceramic packing cord to ensure the tightness of the doors and the
glasses. This packing cord is a wearing part and must be changed from time to time. Please consult
your authorized dealer in this case.
Protected Wall Reduced Clearances:
Local codes in some areas will allow reduced clearances when the stove is installed adjacent to a
protected wall system. Your local building official must approve the variance. Check your local building
codes or with a qualified installer.
Combustion Air Supply:
Provide for an adequate supply of air for combustion. Proper ventilation is essential when using a solid
fuel-burning appliance. The combustion process uses oxygen from inside the dwelling and if there is
not adequate make-up air (such as in newer homes which are well insulated and weather tight), it may
be difficult to obtain an adequate draft in your chimney (caused by a shortage of air in the house). To
correct this, it may be necessary to crack a window on the windward side of the dwelling, or provide
combustion air to a nearby floor/wall vent (fresh air duct), or directly to the stove.
Draft Requirements:
The SCAN stove is only one component of the total system. The venting system is equally important
for achieving the required flow of combustion air to the firebox and for safely removing unwanted
combustion byproducts from the appliance. If the venting system’s design does not promote these
ends, the system may not function properly. Poorly functioning venting systems may create
performance problems as well as be a safety hazard (i.e. an oversized chimney may result in less than
optimum performance. Installations into a large, masonry chimney may require a liner to improve
performance). A draft test should read greater than .04" W.C. (Inches Water Column) and less than
.08" W.C. The table below shows dimension of connection piece and data for draft requirements for

4. OPERATION
WARNING:
DO NOT USE GASOLINE, LIGHTER FLUID, KEORSENE OTHER FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS TO
START OR FRESHEN A FIRE IN THE STOVE KEEP ALL SUCH LIQUIDS WEEL AWAY FROM THE
STOVE WHILE IT IS IN USE.
Fueling the Stove:
Your SCAN freestanding wood stove is designed for burning dry natural well-seasoned wood only (If
your wood supply is not seasoned, ask your authorized SCAN dealer where to obtain seasoned fuel in
your area). Wood should be stored in a dry place for at least two years before being used for fuel.
Some trees have very high moisture content and it is necessary to thoroughly dry the wood. Cutting
and splitting the wood can speed up the drying process, then stacking it with both ends of the stick
exposed. More drying occurs through the end than through the sides even when the wood is split. We
recommend that the moisture content of the wood is between 15-18% on a wet basis.
Green or uncured wood does not work well as fuel, and can cause increased creosote buildups. The
value of green wood as a source of heat is limited. Do not overload, use kindling wood, or mill ends for
primary fuel as this may cause over-firing.
Do not store wood within the installation clearances or within the space required for charging and ash
removal.
Although feeding excessive amounts of fuel to the stove should be avoided, it is important to supply it
with sufficient fuel to maintain a moderately hot fire (this is particularly important since burning wood
produces volatile substances).
Burning materials other than natural dry well seasoned wood may shorten the life of your stove and
possibly lead to a dangerous over-firing condition. Do not burn garbage, particle, board, scraps or
pressed logs using bonding agents because they can produce conditions, which will deteriorate metal.
Starting a Fire: Do not elevate the fire. Build fire directly on the hearth inside the stove; do not build
fire above or in front of the log retainer.
To start a fire:
Pull the ash drawer open about one inch and fully open the air intake control. In addition, to help with
the start-up, you may also leave the fuel door slightly ajar. Use a small amount of fire starters with
enough kindling wood to establish a small brisk burning fire. Add several larger pieces of wood on top
of the burning kindling and allow enough time for it to fully catch on fire. Add a full load of fuel and
close and latch the fuel door. After five minutes, push the ash drawer closed and adjust the air intake
control to the desired position.
CAUTION:
RISK FOR EXCESSIVE TEMPERATURES. THE MAXIMUM TIME THE ASH DRAWER CAN BE
OPEN DURING STARTUP IS FIVE MINUTES! KEEP ASH DRAWER CLOSED DURING FIRING OF
THE HEATER.
16
Refueling:
To refuel the stove, first move the air intake control to full open, let the fire “liven-up” for about one
minute. Open the fuel door about ½” and hold in this position until stove is drafting well. Open the fuel
door and add wood. If the fire or coal bed is almost depleted and a full load of wood is added, it may
be necessary to adjust the air intake control wide open to reestablish a lively fire. The use of start up
air should only be used for a short period of time.
Note: After refueling, when the wood is burning at a brisk rate, reset the air intake control to the
desired position by moving the air intake control handle all the way closed and then back to the
desired setting.

5. MAINTENANCE
Ash Disposal and Removal:
CAUTION: Be sure the fire is out and stove is cold before removing ashes! Never burn your stove with
the ash drawer open.
Be careful when you empty the stove for ashes. There may be glows left as long as 24 hours after the
stove was last used. Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight fitting lid. The closed
container of ashes should be places on a non-combustible floor or on the ground well away from all
combustible materials, pending final disposal.
If ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally dispersed, they should be retrained in the
closed container until all cinders have thoroughly cooled.
Cleaning of Stove:
The stove is cleaned with a moist cloth. Senotherm spray is available for repair of possible damages/
scratches. Your dealer has the right spray in the right color. As there may be minor color differences, it
is recommended to repair large areas with natural borders. You will get the best result if the stove is
repaired while it is hand-warm (if the stove is too hot the paint will be granular). Remember a good
airing during the repair. A possible change of color to gray is caused by over-firing, i.e. you have used
more wood than recommended.
Soapstone:
The soap stones are cleaned with fine sandpaper or a dry sponge.
Gold or Chromium Doors:
Always use a dry cloth to clean your gold or chromium doors (or glass cleaner). Please note that you
must NEVER use metal cleaner.
Removing Baffle for Cleaning:
Be sure the fire is out and stove is cold before removing baffle plate, be cautions with handling the
plates because the plates are made of a subtle material; which easily broke if not handle with care.
Removal of the lower plate: lift the plate up from the supporting pins in and take the pins out from the
side plates and take out the plate (pos 1). Use the same procedure for the upper plate (pos 2) and
take out plate (pos 3).
See the drawing below: Plate 1, 2 and 3.
SCAN:
Mounting in reverse order, observe: the plates are place as
Layout of lining and baffle plates in
such that the supporting pins fit into the groove in the plates.
the firebox:
The placement of firebricks and baffle plates are the same in
both stoves and is illustrated on the drawing below. Removal of
all fire bricks and the baffle plates should follow in the numeric
order and installation of all fire bricks and baffle plates should
follow in the reverse order of the removal, that is step 1 to 7
WARNING:
DO NOT OPERATE STOVE WITHOUT BAFFLE PLATES
PROPERLY INSTALLED OR WARRANTY WILL BE VOID

Door Glass:
A commercial glass cleaner designed for stoves is recommended for cleaning the glass. The glass
can also be cleaned as follows: Dip a moist cloth or old newspaper in the ashes and use this to clean
the glass. Attention: The ashes should not get into contact with your skin! Wipe with a dry cloth.
The ceramic door packing cord must not get wet.
Be careful not to abuse the glass by striking or slamming the door shut.
Do not operate the stove with broken glass. If the glass breaks then replace it promptly.
Use only replacement packing cord listed for the door, glass and ash drawer.
Replacing Broken Door Glass:
The door must be dismounted from the stove before installing a new glass.
1. Loosen the door hinges:
SCAN 5.2: loosen the screw underneath each hinge with a hexagon spanner (see sketch on
page 20).
2. Place the door on a soft pad.
3. Loosen the fastening screws that hold the inside door frame. Remove the door frame and
carefully remove the remainder of the old glass.
4. Clean the area where the glass and packing cord are to be installed.
5. For SCAN 5.2 make sure that the small pivots of the closing device fit into the holes of the
locking pawls.
6. Install the new flat self-adhesive packing cord on the edge of the inside surface of the outer
door frame around the opening and cut off surplus packing cord to make an air tight joint.
(The side with the adhesive is to fix the packing cord to the inside of the outer doorframe).
7. Carefully place the glass on the outer doorframe and install the inner doorframe using the
screws removed in disassembly. Hold the parts together and install the screws only with two
revolutions.
Install the flat part of the P-packing cord so it will fit between the outer doorframe and the
inner door frame. (When installing the P-packing cord use your fingers or a screwdriver to push
the flat part of the cord under the inner doorframe. Make sure the cord is not pushed in so far
that the round part will not seal against the door opening of the stove). Tighten the inner
doorframe by mounting the screws evenly around the frame (enough to be sure the door
packing cord stays in place) then fully tighten the screws.
8. Carefully turn around the door and install the tube packing cord between the glass and the
outer doorframe with your fingers.
9. Install the door on to the stove again in reverse order of dismounting (see under 1).
Make sure that there is the same distance between the door edges and the stove on both
sides and that the door and the latch work properly.
SCAN 5 the only difference is the P-packing cord, which is instead a 15 mm (⅜ inch) glass
packing cord.

Creosote Formation and the Need for Removal:
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 in the flue lining. When ignited this creosote
makes an extremely hot fire.
The chimney connector and chimney should be inspected at least twice monthly 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.
Door Glass:
A commercial glass cleaner designed for stoves is recommended for cleaning the glass. The glass
can also be cleaned as follows: Dip a moist cloth or old newspaper in the ashes and use this to clean
the glass. Attention: The ashes should not get into contact with your skin! Wipe with a dry cloth. The

Do not operate the stove with broken glass. If the glass breaks then replace it promptly.
Use only replacement packing cord listed for the door, glass and ash drawer.
