OWNER’S
INFORMATION
Thank You ...
For purchasing a Valor by Miles Industries. Your new
radiant gas heater is a technical appliance that must
be installed by a qualified dealer. Each Valor fireplace
is fully tested during the production process for your
safety and comfort.
Your unit has been professionally installed by:
Dealer Name: ________________________________
Phone Number :_______________________________
Should you encounter an operational problem, call
your dealer immediately.
Do not try to repair the unit as you may cause an
injury or damage the fireplace.
This manual and particularly the preceeding
and following pages contain very important
information regarding the safe operation of your
fireplace as well as maintenance instructions.
Read carefully BEFORE operating your fireplace
and pay special attention to the SAFETY
WARNINGS.
A heating gas appliance does require safe handling
and for this reason, we very strongly recommend that
no children be allowed to touch the fireplace and its
controls at all times. Do install a screen or barrier
in front of the fireplace to protect your children
against severe burns.
Operating Your Fireplace for the First Time
When operating your new fireplace for the first time,
some vapors may be released due to the burning of
curing compounds used in the manufacture of the
appliance. They may cause a slight odor and could
cause the flames to be the full height of the firebox, or
even slightly higher, for the first few hours of operation.
It is also possible that these vapors could set off any
smoke detection alarms in the immediate vicinity.
These vapors are quite normal on new appliances. We
recommend opening a window to vent the room. After
a few hours use, the vapors will have disappeared and
the flames will be at their normal height.
Flame Supervision Device
For your safety, this appliance is fitted with a flame
supervision device which will shut-off the gas supply
if, for any reason, the pilot flame goes out. This device
incorporates a fixed probe, which senses the heat
from the pilot flame. If the probe is cool, the device will
prevent any gas flow unless manually lighting the pilot.
See full lighting instructions on page 15 of this manual.

Owner’s Information
Cleaning
! WARNING
DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT!
Let the fireplace cool first before cleaning it.
Important - Glass cleaning - Mineral deposits
One of the by-products of the combustion process in
a gas appliance is a mineral which can show up as a
white film on the ceramic glass viewing door.
The composition of the deposit varies widely with location and time. It believed to be associated with the varying sulfur content of the gas. You may have the problem
intermittently.
We have consulted with ceramic glass manufacturers and they cannot give us a definitive solution to this
problem. Dealers have tried various cleaning products
with varying results. The following are recommendations only and are not meant to guarantee results.
NOTE: This is a problem beyond Miles Industries’
control and is not covered under warranty.
• Clean the glass regularly as soon as you notice
the buildup (white film). If the film is left for a longer
period of time, it will bake on. It is then much harder,
if not impossible, to remove.
• NEVER use an abrasive cleaner on the ceramic
glass. Any abrasion of the surface has the
immediate effect of compromising the strength of the
glass. An emulsion type cleaner is recommended.
• Use a soft damp cloth to apply the cleaner. Dry the
glass with a soft, dry, preferably cotton cloth. Most
paper towels and synthetic materials are abrasive to
ceramic glass and should be avoided.
• Our dealers have had good results from the
products listed below. We cannot, however,
guarantee the results of these products.
• BRASSO, POLISH PLUS by KELKEM, COOK TOP CLEAN
CREME by ELCO, WHITE OFF by RUTLAND, TURTLE WAX
DO NOT CLEAN THE GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT!
Always securely replace the window before lighting.
If broken, the glass pane may only be replaced
as a complete window unit as supplied by the
manufacturer.

To remove the window for cleaning:
1. Unhook the window
baffle located on top
of the window frame.
2. Turn the top two
spring-loaded window
bolts through 90
degrees to release
the window from the
firebox.
3. Remove the bottom
two spring-loaded
window bolts.
4. Carefully lift the window away. Keep the window,
window baffle, and bolts in a safe place.
To refit the window:
1. Slide the window inside the appliance case and rest
it on the firebox front bottom tabs. Refit the bottom
two bolts. The bolts should be screwed in securely.
2. Refit the top two bolts securing by turning them
through 90 degrees.
3. Hook the window baffle to the top of the window
frame. Be careful not to hook it onto the firebox
frame—see image below and page 38.

(appliance shown without its front frame for clarity)
4. Grab the top of the window and baffle and pull them
forward and release to check that the window opens
slightly and returns confirming the good function of
the spring-loaded mechanism.
5. Similarly check the bottom of the window by pulling
it forward and releasing.
IMPORTANT: To ensure a safe operation, ensure that
the spring-loaded mechanism functions properly.
6. Apply light hand pressure against the window frame
sides to bed in the window seal.
OWNER’S
INFORMATION
Owner’s Information
7. If the Hot Glass Warning plate has been removed
from the front lower corner of the window,
reinstall it by sliding it between the glass and
the frame as indicated.
Safety warning plate
Soot or dust can be brushed from the ceramic rocks
and firebox walls using a soft brush. Dust can also
be removed from the burner using a soft brush after
removing the ceramic logs. When cleaning, make sure
that no particles are brushed into the slots of the burner.
Checks
A periodic check of the pilot and burner flames should
be made. Check after the fire has been on for at least
30 minutes. The pilot flame must cover the tip of the
thermocouple probe. The main burner flame pattern will
vary from appliance to appliance depending on the type
of installation and climatic conditions.
Rock fuel bed
A black discoloration may form over time at the front
bottom of the 6-rock original fuel bed; this deposit
can be burned off by running the fireplace on a low
to medium setting fire for 30 to 45 minutes. This
discoloration is unavoidable and will re-form again.
The appliance area must always be kept clear and free
from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
Inspect the vent terminal outdoors regularly to make
sure that snow, trees, bushes, leaves, or other objects
do not obstruct it.
Examine the vent system and terminal regularly. We
recommend annually.

The appliance uses four 1.5 V AA alkaline batteries for
its remote control receiver and one 9 V alkaline battery
for its handset. The batteries should last one to two
seasons, depending on usage. Removing the batteries
in the off-season will extend the battery life. Should the
batteries loose power, the control may be operated by
manually turning the control knob at the valve or by
turning off the valve at the switch.
To replace the batteries in the remote control
receiver:
1. The receiver is located to the left of the valve and it
is retained to the firebox by a Velcro tab. Grab the
receiver and pull it out from its location.

Important Installer Notice – Weather Sealing & Vapor Barriers
It is the installer’s responsibility to ensure that vent installations through exterior walls
are caulked and weatherproofed in such a manner as to:
• Prevent rain water from entering the wall from the weather side by adequately
caulking the outer vent plate to the exterior wall surface.
• Prevent moisture inside the home from penetrating into the wall structure by ensuring
the inside wall plate is adequately sealed to the inside vapor barrier.
• Prevent rain water and moisture from entering the walls by sealing the joints between
the outer vent tube and the inner and outer wall plates.
We recommend the use of a high quality polyurethane sealant.

equivalent (2 x 45 degrees = 90 degrees)—can be
used.
5. Each 90 degrees elbow installed on the horizontal
plane is equivalent to a 3 feet horizontal pipe;
therefore, 3 feet must be subtracted from allowable
horizontal run. (45 degrees elbow is equivalent to
18 inches horizontal pipe.)
6. All horizontal pipe runs must be graded 1/4 inch per
foot upwards in the direction of the exhaust flow.
The final pipe length, when terminating through the
wall may be graded downwards slightly to prevent
water migration.
7. Maximum co-linear venting is 40 feet (12.2 m).
8. A restrictor is required for all installations—see
section Appliance Preparation section for more
information.

Co-Axial Venting
Co-Axial Vertical Installations
• Check the roof pitch to determine which roof
flashing will be needed. See venting accessories list
on pages 43–44 for allowable components.
• The distance from the roof to the lowest terminal
discharge opening (“H” in figure) depends on
the roof pitch and must be in accordance with
the manufacturer’s instructions supplied with the
termination unit.
Note: The venting system for these appliances is
considered to be a Special Venting System. The
rule in the Installation Code requiring a minimum
vent height of 2 feet above any portion of a building
within 10 feet does not therefore apply.
• The minimum clearances to combustible materials
all round the vent pipes must be in accordance
with the dimensions shown in the Co-Axial Venting
section of this manual.
• Drop a plumb from the ceiling to the center of the
appliance vent opening. Mark the position on the
ceiling. Drill a small hole at the marked position.
• Determine the position where the vent will pass
through the roof. If directly above the position where
it penetrates the ceiling, drop a plumb from the roof
to the small hole in the ceiling and mark the roof at
this spot.
If rafters or other obstructions will prevent a vertical
exit or if clear attic space is desired, the roof outlet
can be offset using 45 degrees elbows.
Drill a small hole at the marked position.
• A ceiling firestop must be installed at the second
floor and higher floors.
A ceiling support should be used below the flat
ceiling.
To install the firestop and support, cut and frame a
10 inches (254 mm) square hole centered on the
small hole previously drilled.
• Fit vent accessory elbows and pipe lengths as
required up through ceiling support boxes and
firestops.
If installation includes offset, support the offsetting
pipes every 3 feet (1 m) with wall straps as shown.
• Cut a hole in the roof centered on the small hole.
The hole must allow for the minimum clearances to
combustible materials. See Venting section in this
manual.
• Fit pipe lengths through the roof. Fit roof flashing
securing it with roofing nails.
• Fit storm collar and termination cap.

The appliance must be isolated from the
gas supply piping system by closing its
individual manual shut-off valve during any
pressure testing of the gas supply piping
system at test pressures equal to or less
than 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
Failure to either disconnect or isolate the
appliance during pressure testing may result in
regulator or valve damage. Consult your dealer
in this case.
• The minimum supply pressure is given in the
Specifications section of this manual.

If the circulating fan is to be installed, be aware
that the supply pipe run inside the case should
be at the same height as the appliance inlet pipe
in order to clear the fan. If intending to fit an
internal isolating valve, check that it will be clear
of the fan.
• Use only new black iron or steel pipes or copper
tubing if acceptable—check local codes. Note that
in USA, copper tubing must be internally tinned
for protection against sulfur compounds.
• Unions in gas lines should be of ground joint type.
• The gas supply line must be sized and installed
to provide a supply of gas sufficient to meet the
maximum demand of the appliance without undue
loss of pressure.
• All piping and connections must be tested for leaks
after installation or servicing. All leaks must be
corrected immediately.
• When testing for leaks:
»
»
»
»
Make sure that the appliance is turned off.
Open the manual shut-off valve.
Test for leaks by applying a liquid detergent
or soap solution to all joints. Bubbles forming
indicate a gas leak. Never use an open flame
to check for leaks.
Correct any leak detected immediately.
• The pressure test tapping locations are shown on
below. A built-in non-adjustable regulator controls
the burner manifold pressure. The correct pressure
range is shown in the table in Specifications section
of this manual. The pressure check should be made
with the burner alight and at its highest setting. See
Lighting Instructions section for full operating details.
• Sealant used must be resistant to the action of all
gas constituents including propane gas. Sealant
should be applied lightly to male threads to ensure
excess sealant does not enter gas lines.
• The supply line should include a manual shut-off
valve to allow the appliance to be disconnected for
servicing.
• A plugged 1/8 inch NPT tapping must be installed
in the line. The tapping must be accessible for test
gauge connection and be immediately upstream of
the gas supply connection to the appliance.
• Pressure test the supply line for leaks.

Remote Control Initial Set-up
The receiver and the handset of the remote control
system must be initially synchronized before the first use.
1. Insert alkaline batteries in the remote control
receiver and handset. The receiver is located left of
the control valve under the burner module.
2. With a sharp object, press and hold the receiver’s
reset button until you hear one short and one long
beeps. Release the reset button after the second
beep.
3. Within the subsequent 20 seconds, press the small
flame button ( ) on the remote handset until you
hear two short beeps confirming the sychronization
is set.
This is a one time setting only and is not required when
changing the batteries in the remote receiver. The
remote control system is now ready to use.
Operation Check & Aeration Settings Adjustment
Operation Check
Turn the fireplace flame up and down using the
remote control to confirm that the full range of inputs
is achieved—see the remote control operation
instructions on pages 9–13.
In a few unusual installations, the flame picture may
be improved by adjusting the aeration. The need for
adjustment should be determined only by operating the
appliance with the ceramic rocks and window installed.
Aeration Settings
Increasing aeration will cause the flames to appear
more transparent and blue showing more ceramic
effects glow.
Light the fire and allow the unit to warm up for 10–15
minutes to evaluate the flame picture. Burners are
equipped with an adjustable shutter to control primary
aeration. See the figures below. The shutter is
factory-set to an aeration gap which will give optimum
performance for the vast majority of installations.
Decreasing aeration will cause the flames to appear
more yellow or orange showing less ceramic effects glow.
Too little aeration may result in black carbon
forming and dropping into the firebox.
