Adjusting The Venturies:
• Remove the ash shelf by undoing the screw at each end, pull shelf towards you.
• Remove one screw from the cover plate located below the ash shelf. Loosen the other screw (do not
remove) swing the cover plate out of the way and tighten screw down to hold it in place.
• With along screwdriver rotate spring clips to open or close the shutter to the desired setting.
The venturies allows the amount of air coming into the fireplace
to be adjusted in order to accommodate different climates and
venting arrangements. Start the pilot and then the burner. Make
sure the pilot flame is burning normally and none of the burner
ports are plugged. Let the fireplace burn for roughly fifteen
minutes and then examine the flames, compare the flames to
Figure 46.
The ideal flame will be blue at the base and light orange above.
The flames should be of medium height. If the flames look like
this, no venturi adjustment is needed. If the flames are fairly short
and mostly blue, the fireplace is getting too much air. Therefore,
the venturies should be closed slightly until the correct flames are
Figure 5: Venturi Adjustment.
achieved. Flames that are very orange, with tall, dark, stringy
tips, are not getting enough air. Open the venturi until the flames clean up. If the venturi is opened, or
closed all the way, and the correct flames cannot be attained, turn off the gas and contact the dealer.
Warning: Incorrect venturi adjustment may lead to improper
combustion, which is a safety hazard. Contact the dealer if
there is any concern about the venturi adjustment.

Figure 6: Removing the Door.
Allow the glass to cool before cleaning. It will be necessary to clean the ceramic glass periodically.
During a cold start up, condensation will sometimes form on the glass. This is a normal condition with
all gas fireplaces and stoves. However, this condensation can allow dust and lint to cling to the glass
surface. Initial paint curing of the appliance can leave behind a slight film on the glass. This is a temporary
problem. It is therefore recommended that the glass be cleaned initially after about the first four hour of
use. Depending upon the amount of use, cleaning should be required no more than two or three times
per season. To clean the door, use a mild glass cleaner and a soft cloth or a glass cleaner available from
your Enviro dealer. Abrasive cleaners will damage the glass.
To Replace Door:
The glass in this appliance is an integral part of the door assembly. If the glass is damaged or broken a
replacement inner door with glass assembly must be purchased.
The glass in this appliance is ceramic. If the glass is damaged or broken a factory door with glass
replacement must be used.
Remove the door with glass, a new door assembly must be purchased from an ENVIRO dealer (part #:
EG28-103). Do not use a substitute materials; it will void the warranty.
Cleaning The Inside Of The Firebox:
1. Turn off the unit and allow it to cool down completely.
2. Remove the logs carefully from the firebox. Gently remove the embers and place on a piece of paper
towel, until ready to replace.
3. Vacuum the bottom of the firebox thoroughly. Carefully clean off any dust on the logs and remove any
lint from the main burner and pilot burner.
4. After carefully replacing the log and embers in their correct positions (see Secondary Installation Installation of Log Set and Embers), and the door has been resealed, re-light the pilot, following the
instructions on the lighting label attached to the unit.

Planning Your Installation:
When planning your installation, it will be necessary to select the proper length of vent pipe for your
particular requirements. It is important to note when passing through a wall, the maximum allowable
wall thickness is 10 inches (25.4 cm), 1½ inches (3.8 cm) clearance to combustibles must be maintained.
Select the amount of vertical rise desired for “vertical-to-horizontal” type installations. To determine
the length of vent pipe required for vertical installations, measure the distance from the appliance flue
outlet to the ceiling, the ceiling thickness, the vertical rise through the attic or second story, and allow
for sufficient vent height above the roof line. For two story applications, a fire stop is required at each
floor level. If an offset is needed in the attic, additional pipe and elbows will be required. To connect the
venting system to the appliance flue outlet, a twist-lock adapter is built into the appliance at the factory.
Refer to ‘Vent Configuration and Restrictor Settings’ for venting parameters.
Your total vent pipe length must be within the shaded area of Figure 22. If a 90° elbow is used in the
horizontal plane, 36” (91.4 cm) must be subtracted from the allowable horizontal run.
There are two (2) basic types of Direct Vent System installationsa and they are shown below.

Vent Configurations:
33 ft
(10.1 m)
Figures 22 shows the range of venting options, it
shows possible vent configurations if the unit is top
vented, for vertical and horizontal terminations,
any layout that remains within the shaded area is
acceptable. Having the fewest number of elbows is
ideal, as they tend to disrupt air movement. Using
45˚ elbows is preferable to using 90˚ elbows. Also, a
shorter vent system will perform better than a longer
one.
NOTE: The total length of the vent pipes can not
exceed 33 feet (10.1 m). Any combination of rise and
run can be used as long as it lays within the shaded
area (a total of three (3) 90° elbows or six (6) 45°
elbows can be used). In addition to what is shown, if a
90° elbow is used in the horizontal plane, 3 feet (91.4
cm) must be subtracted from the allowable horizontal
run (for each 45° elbow, 1½ feet must be subtracted
from the allowable horizontal run).

Horizontal Installation:
1. Set the appliance in the desired location. Check to determine if wall studs or roof rafters are in the
way when the venting system is attached. If this is the case, you may want to adjust the location of
the appliance.
2. Direct vent pipe and fittings are designed with special twist-lock connections. Assemble the desired
combination of black pipe and elbows to the appliance adapter with pipe seams oriented towards the
wall or floor, as much out of view as possible.
Place a bead of Mil-Pac on the outer edge of the inner exhaust pipe (non-flared end). Place a bead
of high temperature silicone on the male edge of the outer pipe. Push the pipe sections completely
together, then twist-lock one section clockwise approximately ¼ turn, until the two sections are fully
locked. The female locking lugs will not be visible from the outside, on black pipe. They may be

4. Position the horizontal vent termination in the center of the 10” (25.4 cm) x 10” (25.4 cm) hole, and
attach to the exterior wall with the four screws provided. Before attaching the vent termination to the
exterior wall, run a bead of non-hardening mastic around the edges, so as to make a seal between
the termination and the wall. The arrow on the vent termination should be pointing up, insure that
the proper clearances to combustible materials are maintained.
5. Before connecting the horizontal run of the vent pipe to the vent termination, slide the black
decorative wall thimble cover over the vent pipe.
6. Slide the appliance and vent assembly towards the wall, carefully inserting the vent pipe into the
cap assembly. It is important that the vent pipe extend into the vent cap a sufficient distance with a
minimum of 1¼” (3.2 cm) overlap. Secure the connection between the vent cap pipe and the vent
cap by attaching the two sheet metal straps extending from the vent cap assembly into the outer wall
of the vent pipe. Use the two sheet metal screws provided to connect the straps to the vent pipe.
Bend any remaining portion of the sheet metal straps back towards the vent cap, so the decorative
wall thimble will conceal it (see left image in
Figure 26).
7. Slide the decorative wall thimble up to the wall
surface and attach with the screws provided.
Apply decorative brass or chrome trim if desired
(see right image in Figure 26).

• For buildings with vinyl siding, a vinyl siding
standoff, should be installed between the vent cap
and the exterior wall (see Figure 27). Attach the
vinyl siding standoff to the horizontal termination.
The vinyl siding standoff prevents excessive heat
from possibly melting the vinyl siding material.
Note that the horizontal vent termination bolts
onto the flat portion of the vinyl siding standoff
(shaded area in Figure 27), so that an air space will
exist between the wall and the vent termination.

• The horizontal run of vent pipe must be level and
should have a ¼ inch rise for every one foot
of run towards the termination. Never allow
the vent to run downward. This could cause high
temperature and may present the possibility of a
fire.
• The location of the horizontal vent termination
on the exterior wall must not be easily blocked
or obstructed. Refer to “Initial Installation - Vent
Termination Restrictions” section.
• When installing a vent pipe in a chase the minimum
clearance to combustibles is 2” (5 cm).

Vertical Installation:
1. Check the instructions for required clearances (air spaces) to combustibles when passing through
ceilings, walls, roofs, enclosures, attic rafters, or other nearby combustible surfaces. Do not pack air
spaces with insulation.
2. Set the gas appliance in the desired location.
Drop a plumb bob down from the ceiling to the
position of the appliance flue exit, and mark
the location where the vent will penetrate the
ceiling. Drill a small hole at this point. Next, drop
a plumb bob from the roof to the hole previously
drilled in the ceiling, mark the spot where the
vent will penetrate the roof. Determine if ceiling
joists, roof rafters, or other framing will obstruct
the venting system. You may wish to relocate
the appliance, or to offset, to avoid cutting load
bearing members.
3. To install the Round Support Box/Wall Thimble
in a flat ceiling, cut a 10 inch (25.4 cm) square
hole in the ceiling, centered in the hole drilled in
Step 2. Frame the hole as shown in Figure 29.

4. Assemble the desired lengths of black pipe and
elbows necessary to reach from the appliance
adapter up through the Round Support Box. Insure that all pipe and elbow connections are in their
fully twist-locked position.
5. Cut hole in the roof centered on the small hole placed in the roof from Step 2. The hole should be of

length of the support straps that extend out beyond the edge of the flashing.
7. Slip the flashing over the pipe section protruding through the roof. Secure the base of the flashing to
the roof with roofing nails. Use a non-hardening sealant between the uphill edge of the flashing and
the roof. Insure the roofing material overlaps the top edge of the flashing as shown in Figure 30. Verify
that you have at least the minimum clearance to combustibles at the roof line.
8. Continue to add pipe sections until the height of the vent cap meets the minimum code requirements.
Refer to Figure 31 and Table 6. Note that for steep roof pitches, the vent height must be increased. In
high wind conditions, nearby trees, adjoining roof lines, steep pitched roofs, and other similar factors
can result in poor draft, or down drafting. In these cases, increasing the vent height may solve the
problem.
9. Slip the storm collar over the pipe, and push it down to the top of the roof flashing as shown in Figure
30. Use the non-hardening sealant around the
joint between the pipe and the storm collar.
10. Twist-lock the vent cap.

45° elbows (x2)
• If an offset is necessary in the attic to avoid obstructions,
it is important to support the vent pipe every 3 ft (91
cm), to avoid excessive stress on the elbows, and possible
separation. Wall straps are available for this purpose (see
Figure 32).
• When ever possible, use 45° degree elbows instead of
90° degree elbows. The 45° degree elbow offers less
restriction to the flow of flue gases and intake air.

Secondary Installation
Installation of Log Set and Embers:
The placement of the logs is not
arbitrary. If they are positioned
incorrectly, the flames can be “pinched”
and will not burn correctly. The burner
come with five (5) locator pins and two
(2) resing areas, which make alignment
easier. Using the pictures provided,
carefully set the logs in place.
NOTE: The logs are fragile and
should be handled gently.
Figure 40: Step 1 of Log Placement.
CAUTION: Use only the type of ember
material supplied with this appliance.
Due to the irregular size of the ember
material there may be more than
required. The use of other foreign
materials on the burners may create
dangerous conditions.
If over time, through cleaning and
servicing, these embers require
replacement, contact the nearest
ENVIRO dealer for replacement
embers.
1. The embers can be place before
or after the logs are placed. A bag of
ceramic fiber embers and rock wool
embers is provided gently remove the
ember material from the plastic bag.
Spread a layer loosely in a random
manner across the burner tray. Do not
allow any embers to rest against pilot
assembly. (See Figure 13 or 16 for
proper ember placement.)
DO NOT pack this ember material as
this could create an unsafe condition,
leave embers loose
2. Carefully remove logs from box.
Check to ensure there is no damage.
It is very important to install all logs
in their proper position to insure safe,
optimum operating conditions.

3. Place the log set into the firebox.
Locate each log by seating it down
onto the burner tray support pins.
Follow Figures 11 to 16 proper log
placement.
4. Upon the first light up, watch for
ignition to ALL burner ports. If a
long delay is noted: First, wait for
the appliance to cool down.
• Open the front door of the
appliance.

• If voltage is not present, check the control circuit for
proper operation.
• If proper control system voltage is present, replace the
gas control.
Defective piezo ignitor.
• Check connections to ignitor.
• If ignitor connections are good but no spark, replace
ignitor.
Broken spark electrode.
• Check for broken ceramic insulation, replace electrode if
broken.
Misaligned spark electrode.
• If spark is not arcing from electrode to pilot, loosen the
screws on the pilot base adjust and tighten.
Problem with thermocouple
circuit.
• Check for proper connection of the thermocouple to the
rear of the valve. If loose, fully tighten.
• Check pilot for full flame impingement around
thermocouple. If flame is too small, check gas pressure,
adjust pilot rate screw, check pilot head for damage.
• Check thermocouple voltage at valve. It must be greater
than 5 mV. If low, replace thermocouple.
Air in gas line (pilot dies while
knob is depressed).
• Bleed line.
• Check gas line pressure.
• Contact dealer.
Burners will not remain lit.
Problem with thermopile
circuit.
• Check gas line pressure .
• Check for flame impingement on thermopile. If low, see
“Pilot will not remain lit”.
• Check thermopile for minimum of 300 mV when burner is
switched on.
• Check wiring to thermostat for breaks.
Flame lifting
Leak in vent pipe
• Check for leaks in vent connections.
Improper vent configuration
• Check vent configuration with manual.
Terminal may be recirculating
flue gases
• Check to see if terminal is on correctly.
• May need to install high wind termination cap.
• Contact dealer.
Spark will not light the pilot
after repeatedly pressing the
spark ignitor.
Pilot will not remain lit.
Glass fogs up
Normal Condition: after the appliance warms up the glass will clear.
**Due to additives in gas, glass may get hazy during operation** Clean as needed.
Blue Flames
Normal during start up: flames will yellow as the fireplace heats up.
Flames are burning “dirty” or
sooting
Flame impingement
• Check log positioning.
• Increase primary air by opening the venturi shutter and/
or by opening the vent restrictor.
See also “Burners will not remain lit.”
Remote control doesn’t work
Problem with the remote
• One or more of the batteries are dead. See remote
control instructions.
Problem with fireplace
• The on/off switch is turned to OFF.
• The gas control valve is turned to PILOT or OFF.
