B. Fire Safety
To provide reasonable fire safety, the following should be
given serious consideration:
1.
Hearth & Home Technologies WILL NOT warranty stoves
that exhibit evidence of over-firing. Evidence of over-firing
includes, but is not limited to:
• Warped air tube
Install at least one smoke detector on each floor of
your home to ensure your safety. They should be
located away from the heating appliance and close
to the sleeping areas. Follow the smoke detector
manufacturer’s placement and installation instructions,
and be sure to maintain regularly.
D. Combustible/Non-combustible Materials
2.
A conveniently located Class A fire extinguisher.
•
3.
A practiced evacuation plan, consisting of at least two
escape routes.
4.
In the event of a chimney fire:
a.
b.
Prepare occupants for immediate evacuation
Notify fire department
• Deteriorated refractory brick retainers
• Deteriorated baffle and other interior components
•
C. Overfiring
•
WARNING
Fire Risk
Combustible Material
Material made of or surfaced with wood, compressed
paper, plant fibers, plastics, or any material capable
of igniting and burning, whether flame-proofed or not,
plastered or unplastered.
Non-combustible Material
Material which will not ignite and burn. Such materials are
those consisting entirely of steel, iron, brick, tile, slate,
glass or plasters, or any combination thereof.
Non-combustible Sealant Material
Sealants which will not ignite and burn: Rutland, Inc.
Fireplace Mortar #63, Rutland 76R, Nuflex 304, GE
RTV106 or GE RTB116 (or equivalent).
Do not over-fire.
Over-firing may ignite creosote or will damage
the stove and chimney.
To prevent over-firing your stove, DO NOT:
• Use flammable liquids
• Overload with wood
• Burn trash or large amounts of scrap lumber
• Permit too much air to the fire
• Use of processed solid fuel fire logs
1. Symptoms of Over-Firing
Symptoms of over-firing may include one or more of the
following:
• Chimney connector or appliance glowing
• Roaring, rumbling noises
• Loud cracking or banging sounds
• Metal warping
• Chimney fire
2. What To Do if Your Stove is Over-Firing
• Immediately close the door and air controls to reduce
air supply to the fire.
E. Seasoned Wood
Burn only dry seasoned wood.
• Store wood under cover, out of the rain and snow.
• Dry and well-seasoned wood will not only minimize the
chance of creosote formation, but will give you the most
efficient fire.
• Even dry wood contains at least 15% moisture by weight,
and should be burned hot enough to keep the chimney
hot for as long as it takes to dry the wood out - about one
hour.
• It is a waste of energy to burn unseasoned wood of any
kind.
Dead wood lying on the forest floor should be considered wet,
and requires full seasoning time.
• Standing dead wood can be considered to be about 2/3
seasoned.
• To tell if wood is dry enough to burn, check the ends of
the logs.
• If there are cracks radiating in all directions from the center,
it is dry.
• If your wood sizzles in the fire, even though the surface
is dry, it may not be fully cured.
• If you suspect a chimney fire, call the fire department
and evacuate your house.
• Contact your local chimney professional and have
your stove and stove pipe inspected for any damage.
• Do not use your stove until the chimney professional
informs you it is safe to do so.

2. Second Stage
F. Burning Process
In recent years there has been an increasing concern about
air quality. Much of the blame for poor air quality has been
placed on the burning of wood for home heating.
In order to improve the situation, we at Quadra-Fire have
developed cleaner-burning wood appliances that surpass
the requirements for emissions established by our governing
agencies.
These wood appliances must be properly operated in order
to ensure that they perform the way they are designed to
perform.
In the secondary stage wood gives off flammable gases which
burn above the fuel with bright flames.
During this stage of burning:
• The flames must be maintained and not allowed to go out
to ensure the cleanest possible fire.
• If the flames tend to go out, it is set too low for your burning conditions.
The air control located at the upper right hand corner is used to
adjust for burn rates. This is called the Burn Rate Air Control.
Figure 10.1 on page 10.
3. Final Stage
NOTICE: Improper operation can turn any wood appliance into a smoldering environmental hazard.
The final stage of burning is the charcoal stage. This occurs
when the flammable gases have been mostly burned and
only charcoal remains. This is a naturally clean portion of
the burn. The coals burn with hot blue flames.
1. Kindling or First Stage
It helps to know a little about the actual process of burning in
order to understand what goes on inside the appliance. The
first stage of burning is called the kindling stage.
• It is very important to reload your appliance while enough
lively hot coals remain in order to provide the amount of
heat needed to dry and rekindle the next load of wood.
•
In this stage:
• Wood is heated to a temperature high enough to evaporate the moisture present in all wood.
• Wood will reach the boiling point of water (212°F) and will
not get any hotter until the water is evaporated.
This process takes heat from the coals and tends to cool the
appliance.
It is best to open the Burn Rate Air and Start-Up Air Controls before reloading. This livens up the coalbed and
reduces excessive emissions (opacity/smoke).
• Open door slowly so that ash or smoke does not exit appliance through opening.
• Break up any large chunks and distribute the coals so
that the new wood is laid on hot coals.
Air quality is important to all of us, and if we choose to use
wood to heat our homes we should do so responsibly.
Fire requires three things to burn:
• Fuel
• Air
• Heat
We need to learn to burn in the cleanest way possible allowing us to continue using our wood appliances for many
years to come.
If heat is robbed from the appliance during the drying stage,
the new load of wood has reduced the chances for a good
clean burn.
It is always best to burn dry, seasoned firewood. When the
wood isn’t dry, you must open the air controls and burn at a
high burn setting for a longer time to start it burning.
The heat generated from the fire should be warming your
home and establishing the flue draft, not evaporating the
moisture out of wet, unseasoned wood, resulting in wasted
heat.

G. Automatic Combustion Control (ACC)
Typically, when you build a fire, you open the air controls fully
and monitor the fire to prevent it from going into an overfire
situation and/or burning your wood up too quickly before you
shut down the air controls to the desired burn rate.

ease.
LOW
H. Air Controls
1. Start-Up Air Control
The Start-Up Air Control has two primary functions.
The first function is to activate the Automatic Combustion
Control system (ACC).
Start-up Air
Control
• Push the Start-Up Air Control all the way back until it stops
and then pull forward to the front of the appliance until it
stops. Figure 10.1.
• The front air channel opens and allows air to enter the front
of the appliance for approximately 20-24 minutes.
Slide back until it stops
then pull forward
• The front air channel gradually shuts down until it is completely closed at the end of the 20-24 minutes.
• The fire is now controlled by the air supplied by the Burn
Rate Air Control. Figure 10.1.
• This function should be performed each time you reload
the appliance.

3. Burn Rate Air Control
• Push the Start-Up Air Control until it stops.
• The air supply enters at the upper front of the firebox,
near the top of the glass door.
• This preheated air supplies the necessary fresh oxygen
to mix with the unburned gases, helping to create the
second, third and fourth combustion process.
• This air is regulated by the Burn Rate Air Control.
• There are four settings High, Medium-High, Medium-Low
and Low.
• When the control is raised all the way up it is on the High
setting and when pushed all the down it is on the Low
setting. Figure 11.1.
• This activates the timer system (ACC).
5. Low Burn Rate - Below 10,000 BTU/hr*
• Leave the Burn Rate Air Control at the bottom marker.
• Push the Start-Up Air Control all the way back until it
stops and then pull forward until it stops.
• This activates the timer system (ACC).
*NOTE: These are approximate settings, and will vary with
type of wood or chimney draft. Due to altitude and other
environmental circumstances, this operational information is
a guideline only.
I. Burn Rates and Operating Efficiency
For maximum operating efficiency
1. This appliance has a timer system (ACC) that operates
the appliance at its maximum efficiency removing any
guess work for the homeowner. Follow the instructions
below for each burn rate for the Start-Up Air Control and
Burn Rate Air Control. Figure 11.1.

K. Building A Fire
WARNING
Fire Risk.
Keep combustible materials, gasoline
and other flammable vapors and liquids
clear of appliance.
• Do NOT store flammable materials in the appliance’s
vicinity.
•
Open door slowly so that ash or smoke does not exit appliance through opening.
•
Large logs burn slowly, holding a fire longer.
•
Small logs burn fast and hot, giving quick heat.
9. As long as there are hot coals, repeating steps 6 through
8 will maintain a continuous fire.
• DO NOT USE GASOLINE, LANTERN FUEL,
KEROSENE, CHARCOAL LIGHTER FLUID OR
SIMILAR LIQUIDS TO START OR “FRESHEN UP” A
FIRE IN THIS HEATER.
NOTE:
• Build fire on brick firebox floor.
• Do NOT use grates, andirons or other methods to support
fuel.
It will adversely affect emissions.
• Keep all such liquids well away from the heater while it
is in use.
• Combustible materials may ignite.
Before lighting your first fire in the appliance:
1. Confirm the baffle and ceramic blanket are correctly
positioned. They should be even with the front tube and
resting on all tubes. See page 12.
2.
Remove all labels from glass.
There are many ways to build a fire. The basic principle is
to light easily-ignitable tinder or paper, which ignites the fast
burning kindling, which in turn ignites the slow-burning firewood. Here is one method that works well:
CAUTION
Odors and vapors released during initial operation.
• Curing of high temperature paint.
• Open windows for air circulation.
Odors may be irritating to sensitive individuals.
1. Open the Burn Rate Air and Start-Up Air Controls fully.
2. Place several wads of crushed paper on the firebox floor.
Heating the flue with slightly crumpled newspaper before
adding kindling keeps smoke to a minimum.
3. Lay small dry sticks of kindling on top of the paper.
4. Make sure that no matches or other combustibles are in
the immediate area of the appliance. Be sure the room
is ventilated and the flue unobstructed.
5. Light the paper in the appliance. NEVER light or rekindle
fire with kerosene, gasoline, or charcoal lighter fluid; the
results can be fatal.
6. Once the kindling is burning quickly, add several full-length
logs 3 to 4 inches (76 - 102mm) in diameter. Be careful
not to smother the fire. Stack the pieces of wood 1/2 to
1 inch apart (13-25mm); near enough to keep each other
hot, but far enough away from each other to allow air flow
between them.
7. Set the Burn Rate Air Control and activate the timer system (ACC).
8. When ready to reload, It is best to fully open both the Burn
Rate Air and Start-up Air Controls before reloading.
•
This livens up the coalbed and reduces excessive emissions (opacity/smoke).

WARNING
WARNING
Fire Risk.
Fire Risk.
• Do NOT burn wet or green wood.
• Store wood in dry location.
• Stack wood so both ends are exposed to air.
Wet, unseasoned wood can cause accumulation of
creosote.
• DO NOT BURN GARBAGE OR FLAMMABLE
FLUIDS SUCH AS GASOLINE, NAPTHA OR
ENGINE OIL.
• DO NOT USE CHEMICALS OR FLUIDS TO START A
FIRE.
• Do NOT burn treated wood or wood with salt (driftwood).
• May generate carbon monooxide if burn material other
than wood.
May result in illness or possible death.
The majority of the problems appliance owners experience
are caused by trying to burn wet, unseasoned wood.
•
Wet, unseasoned wood requires energy to evaporate the
water instead of heating your home, and
•
Causes evaporating moisture which cools your chimney,
accelerating formation of creosote.
Hardwood vs Softwood
Your appliance performance depends on the quality of the
firewood you use.
Seasoned Wood
•
Cut logs to size
•
Seasoned wood contains about 8,000 BTUs per pound .
•
Split to 6 inches (152 mm) or less in diameter
•
Hard woods are more dense than soft woods.
•
Air dry to a moisture content of not more than 20%
•
Hard woods contain 60% more BTUs than soft woods.
-
Soft wood - about nine months to dry
•
Hard woods require more time to season, burn slower and
are harder to ignite.
-
Hard wood - about eighteen months to dry
•
Soft woods require less time to dry, burn faster and are
easier to ignite.
•
Start the fire with softwood to bring the appliance up to
operating temperature and to establish draft.
•
Add hardwood for slow, even heat and longer burn time.
NOTICE: Seasoning time may vary depending on drying
conditions.

Maintenance and Service
A. Disposal of Ashes
•
Frequency: When ash is within 1-3/4 inch (44mm) of
firebox lip. Leave 1/4 to 1/2 inch (6-13mm) of ash in the
bottom of the firebox.
•
By: Homeowner
WARNING! Risk of Fire! Ashes could contain hot embers.
•
Place ashes in a metal container with a tight-fitting lid.
•
The closed container 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 soil or otherwise
locally dispersed, they should be retained in the closed
container until all cinders have thoroughly cooled
Frequency: Every 2 months during heating season or
as recommended by a certified chimney sweep; more
frequently if chimney exceeds or is under 14-16 feet (4.3
to 4.8m) measured from bottom of appliance.
•
By: Certified chimney sweep
•
Remove all ash from the firebox and extinguish all hot
embers before disposal.
•
Allow the appliance to cool completely.
•
If your type of installation involves a full reline of the
chimney, it will be necessary to either remove the baffle
from the insert, or remove the insert from the fireplace
and disconnect the vent prior to cleaning the chimney.
Refer to page 22 in this manual for instructions on Baffle
Removal.
•
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 shall be inspected
every two months during the heating season to determine
when a creosote buildup has occurred.
•
When creosote has accumulated it shall be removed to
reduce the risk of a chimney fire.
•
Frequency: Every 2 months at the same time the chimney and chimney connector are inspected.
•
By: Homeowner
Check for:
• Cracks in glass
• Door handle - smooth cam operation
• Baffle and ceramic blanket correct placement
• Baffle for warpage
If your type of installation is direct connect within a masonry
chimney, the insert will need to be pulled out from the
fireplace and disconnected from the flue prior to cleaning
the chimney.
•
The creosote or soot should be removed with a brush
specifically designed for the type of chimney in use.
•
Clean out fallen ashes from the firebox.
•
It is also recommended that before each heating season
the entire system be professionally inspected, cleaned
and repaired if necessary.
• Firebrick for cracks, broken or crumbly
• Door gasket. (Dollar bill test). Place a dollar bill between
the stove and the door and then shut the door. If you can
pull the dollar bill out, replace the door gasket.
• Glass frame for loose screws
D. Cleaning Plated Surfaces
•
Frequency: As desired
•
By: Homeowner
•
Clean all the fingerprints and oils from plated surfaces
BEFORE firing the appliance for the first time.
•
If not cleaned properly before lighting your first fire, the
oils can cause permanent markings on the plating.
•
After the plating is cured, the oils will not affect the finish
and little maintenance is required.
• Wipe clean as needed.
WARNING! Risk of Fire!
Do not use chimney cleaners or flame colorants in your
appliance. It will corrode your pipe.

F. Inspect Firebrick
•
Frequency: As desired
•
Frequency: After each ash removal
•
By: Homeowner
•
By: Homeowner
•
Clean glass with a non-abrasive glass cleaner. Abrasive
cleaners may scratch and cause glass to crack.
•
If the deposits on the glass are not very heavy, normal
glass cleaners work well. Heavier deposits may be
removed by using a damp cloth dipped in wood ashes or
by using a commercially available oven cleaner.
•
After using an oven cleaner, it is advisable to remove any
residue with a glass cleaner or soap and water. Oven
cleaner left on during the next firing can permanently
stain the glass and damage the finish on plated metal
surfaces.
• A portion of the combustion air entering the firebox is deflected down over the inside of the door glass.
• This air flow “washes” the glass, helping to keep smoke
from adhering to its surface.
• When operated at a low burn rate, less air will be flowing
over the glass and the smoky, relatively cool condition of
a low fire will cause the glass to become coated.
• Operating the appliance with the Burn Rate Air Control
and Start-Up Air Control all the way open for 15-20 minutes should remove the built up coating.
Replace the firebrick if they become crumbly and/or if
there is a 1/4 inch (6.35mm) gap between the bricks.
The firebox is lined with firebrick, which has exceptional
insulating properties. Do not use a grate; simply build
a fire on the firebox floor. Do not operate appliance
without firebrick.
1. After the coals have completely cooled, remove all
old brick and ash from unit and vacuum firebox.
2. Remove new brick set from box and lay out to
diagram shown.
3. Lay bottom bricks in unit.
4. Install rear bricks on the top of the bottom bricks.
Slide top of bricks under clip on back of firebox wall
and push bottom of bricks back.
5. Install side bricks. Slide top of brick under clips
on side of firebox and push the bottom of the brick
until it is flush with the side of the unit.

Baffle and blanket placement is critical to heat output, efficiency and overall life of the unit. Make sure
the baffle is pushed all of the way to the back of the
firebox and the blanket is laying flat.
Firebrick is designed to protect your firebox. Replace
firebricks that are crumbling, cracked or broken. If
you have an optional ash door, check to make sure
the door is closing properly.
CHIMNEY & CAP INSPECTION
DOOR & LATCH CHECK
Keeping the door and glass
gasket in good shape will
maintain good burn times on
a low burn setting.
The chimney and chimney
cap must be inspected for
soot and creosote during
the burn season. This will
prevent pipe blockage, poor
draft, and chimney fires.
Check the glass frame for
loose screws to prevent air
leakage.
Always burn dry wood to
help prevent cap blockage
and creosote build-up.
Check the door latch for proper adjustment. This
is very important especially after the door rope has
formed to the stove face.
Start the first inspection of your unit after the first 2 months of use, or if performance changes, and adjust your schedule accordingly.
Maintenance is required for safe operation and must be performed to maintain your warranty.

Getting Started
B. Draft
A. Design and Installation Considerations
Draft is the pressure difference needed to vent appliances
successfully. When a appliance is drafting successfully, all
combustion byproducts are exiting the home through the
chimney.
CAUTION
Check building codes prior to installation.
• Installation MUST comply with local, regional, state and
national codes and regulations.
• Consult insurance carrier, local building, fire officials or
authorities having jurisdiction about restrictions, installation
inspection, and permits.
Before installing, determine the following:
Considerations for successful draft include:
•
Preventing negative pressure
•
Location of appliance and chimney
To be sure that your appliance burns properly:
•
Type of chimney connector to be used
· single wall, 6 inch (152mm) diameter, stainless steel, or •
· double wall, 6 inch (152mm) diameter, stainless steel
Must be installed meeting type HT (2100°F) requirements •
per UL 1777 (USA) or ULC S635
• Consult page 28 for clearances to combustibles
• Power outlet located close by for optional blower
•
During a low burn, the chimney draft (static pressure) should
be approximately -.04 inch water column (W.C.)
During a high burn the chimney draft should be approximately
-.10 inch (W.C.)
Measure the W.C at 6 inches (152mm) above the top of the
appliance after one hour of operation at each burn setting.
NOTICE: Hearth & Home Technologies assumes no
responsibility for the improper performance of the
appliance system caused by:
WARNING
Asphyxiation Risk.
• DO NOT CONNECT THIS UNIT TO A CHIMNEY

WARNING
•
Inadequate draft due to environmental conditions
•
Downdrafts
•
Tight sealing construction of the structure
•

C. Negative Pressure
WARNING
Asphyxiation Risk.
• Negative pressure can cause spillage of combustion fumes, soot and carbon monoxide.
• Appliance needs to draft properly for safety.
Negative pressure results from the imbalance of air available
for the appliance to operate properly. It can be strongest in
lower levels of the house.
Causes include:
•
Exhaust fans (kitchen, bath, etc.)
•
Range hoods
•
Combustion air requirements for furnaces, water heaters
and other combustion appliances
•
Clothes dryers
•
Location of return-air vents to furnace or air conditioning
•
Imbalances of the HVAC air handling system
•
Upper level air leaks such as:
- Recessed lighting
- Attic hatch
- Duct leaks
To minimize the effects of negative air pressure:
•
Install the outside air kit with the intake facing prevailing
winds during the heating season
•
Ensure adequate outdoor air for all combustion appliances
and exhaust equipment
•
Ensure furnace and air conditioning return vents are not
located in the immediate vicinity of the appliance
•
Avoid installing the appliance near doors, walkways or
small isolated spaces
•
Recessed lighting should be a “sealed can” design
•
Attic hatches weather stripped or sealed
•
Attic mounted duct work and air handler joints and seams
taped or sealed
•
Basement installations should be avoided

D. Locating Your Stove & Chimney
•
Location of the appliance and chimney will affect performance. As shown in Figure 26.1 the chimney should:
Consider the appliance location in order to avoid
floor and ceiling attic joists and rafters.
•
Locate termination cap away from trees, adjacent
structures, uneven roof lines and other obstructions.
•
Install through the warm space enclosed by the building envelope. This helps to produce more draft, especially during lighting and die down of the fire.
•
Penetrate the highest part of the roof. This minimizes
the affects of wind turbulence and down drafts.

Chimney Connector:
• Must meet minimum standards of NFPA 211.
It is also known as flue pipe or stove pipe. It must be
6 inches (152mm) minimum diameter stainless steel
connector pipe and must be installed meeting type HT
(2100°F) requirements per UL 1777 (USA) or ULC S635.
• Must have at least 5/8 inch (16mm) fireclay lining joined
with refractory cement. (Installations into a clay flue
without a stainless steel liner may reduce draw which affects
performance, will cause the glass to darken and produce
excessive creosote).
Chimney:
The chimney can be new or existing, masonry or
prefabricated and must meet the following minimum
requirements as specified below.
WARNING! Risk of Fire!
Follow venting manufacturer’s clearances and
instructions when installing venting system.
B. Inspections
Existing chimneys should be inspected and cleaned by a
qualified professional prior to installation. The chimney
must not have cracks, loose mortar or other signs of deterioration and blockage. Hearth & Home recommends a
NFI or CSIA certified professional or a technician, under
the direction of a certified professional, conduct a Level II
inspection per NFPA 211.
• The masonry wall of the chimney, if brick or modular
block, must be a minimum of 4 inches (102mm) nominal
thickness.
• A chimney of rubble stone must be at least 12 inches
(305mm) thick.
• Cross-sectional area shall conform to NFPA 211-2006
Section 12.4.5.1.
• Should be lined with a 6 inch (152mm) stainless steel flue
liner to improve performance and reduce creosote buildup.
• An equivalent liner must be a listed chimney liner system
or other approved material.
• No dilution air is allowed to enter the chimney.
1. Secure the fireplace damper in the open position. If this
cannot be accomplished, it will be necessary to remove
the damper
2. Seal damper area of chimney around chimney connector
with a high temperature sealant or seal insert against
the face of the fireplace.
WARNING
Fire Risk
Inspection of Chimney:
• Chimney must be in good condition.
• Meets minimum standard of NFPA 211
• Factory-built chimney must be 6 inch
(152mm) UL103 HT.
3. Both methods must be removable and replaceable for
cleaning and re-installation.
• When possible, install an airtight clean-out door to the rear
of the smoke shelf.
NOTE
C. Larger Chimneys
•
It is recommended that chimneys with larger diameters
than 6 inches (152mm) be relined. An oversized flue
can affect draft and impair performance and will allow
increased build-up of creosote.
In Canada a full length 6 inch (152mm) S635 flue
liner required as per ULC S628.
•
In USA a minimum 5 ft length (1.82m), 6 inch
(152mm) diameter flue liner is required as per UL
1482.

J. Ovalizing Round Stainless Steel Liners
I. Zero-Clearance Fireplace
Zero Clearance Fireplaces are factory-built insulated
metal fireplaces that are usually framed into the wall and
attached to combustible framing wood lumber. The term,
“Zero Clearance” refers to the fact that wood framing material can be in contact with the outer shell of the metal ZC
fireplace or zero air space required to combustibles.
The factory-built chimney must be listed per UL 127 or ULC
610-M87 for all installations. Install thermal protection per
this appliance listing requirements.
A permit is required for all installations, final approval is
contingent of the authority having local jurisdiction. Inspect
the existing fireplace and chimney for any damage or flaws
such as burnouts, metal or refectory warping.
The base and hearth floor of the zero clearance fireplace
must be able to appropriately support the weight of the
wood insert and attached chimney liner.
Make all necessary repairs prior to installing the new wood
insert into the factory built fireplace. The factory Zero
Clearance Fireplace must be structurally sound for proper
insert support and proper operation and continued use of
the wood insert.
A full height 6 inch diameter stainless steel full height listed
chimney liner must be installed meeting type HT (2100°F)
requirements per UL 1777 (USA) or ULC S635 with “0”
clearance to masonry (Canada). The full liner must be
attached to the insert flue collar and to the top of the existing chimney.
Ovalizing round stainless steel liners to accommodate the
liner passing through the damper region of a fireplace is an
allowable and acceptable practice.
Ensure that the ovalization is minimized to the extent
required to fit through the damper.
K. Chimney Height / Rise and Run
To be sure that your Quadra-Fire insert burns properly, the
chimney draft (static pressure) should be approximately -0.10
inches water column (W.C.) during a high burn and -0.04
inches W.C. during a low burn, measured 6 inches (152mm)
above the top of the insert after one hour of operation at each
burn setting.
NOTE: These are guidelines only, and may vary somewhat
for individual installations.
• This product was designed for and tested on a 6 inch
(152mm) chimney, 14 to 16 feet (4.27-4.87m) high, (includes appliance height) measured from the base of the
appliance.
• The further your stack height or diameter varies from this
configuration, the possibility of performance problems exists.
• Chimney height may need to be increased by 2 - 3% per
each 1000 feet (304.8m) above sea level.
• It is not recommended to use offsets or elbows at altitudes
above 4000 feet (1219.2m) above sea level or when there
are other factors that affect flue draft.
The flue liner top support attachment must not reduce the
air flow for the existing air-cooled chimney system. Reinstall original factory-built chimney cap only.
To prevent room air passage to the chimney cavity of the
fireplace, seal either the damper area around the chimney
liner or the insert surround. Circulating air chamber (i.e. in
a steel fireplace liner or metal heart circulator) may not be
blocked. The air flow within and around the fireplace shall
not be altered, blocked by the installation of the insert. (i.e.
no louvers or cooing air inlet or outlet ports may be blocked
by the insert or the insert surround.
See Page 35 “Altering the Fireplace” for modifiations
allowed for factory-built fireplaces.
DO NOT CONNECT THIS APPLIANCE TO
A CHIMNEY FLUE SERVICING ANOTHER
APPLIANCE OR TO ANY AIR DISTRIBUTION
DUCT OR SYSTEM.
Do NOT pack insulation or other combustibles
between spacers.
• ALWAYS maintain specified clearances around
venting and spacers.
• Install spacers as specified.
Failure to keep insulation or other material away from
vent pipe may cause fire.
WARNING
Fire Risk.
• Chimney heights exceeding 25 feet (7.62m) from
base of appliance may create an over-draft situation.
• Overdraft condition may create over-firing.
Over-firing may ignite creosote and/or damage appliance and chimney
This may allow flue gases to enter the house.
