2. THEORETICAL NOTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
2.1.
PELLETS
Wood pellets are manufactured by hot-extruding compressed sawdust which
is produced during the working of natural dried wood. The compactness of
the material comes from the lignin which is contained in the wood itself, and
allows the production of pellets without the use of glues or binders.
The market offers different types of pellet with characteristics which
vary depending on what mixture of woods is used. The diameter varies
between 6 mm and 8 mm, with a standard length in the range 5 mm to
30 mm. Good quality pellets have a density which varies between 600
kg/m3 and 750 kg/m3, with a moisture content which varies from 5%
to 8% by weight.
Fuel pellets
Besides being an ecological fuel (exploiting timber residues to the
maximum and achieving cleaner combustion than is possible with fossil
fuels), pellets also have technical advantages. While good-quality
timber has a calorific power of 4.4 kW/kg (with 15% moisture,
therefore after about 18 months' seasoning), the equivalent figure for
pellets is 4.9 kW/kg.
To ensure good combustion, the pellets must be stored in an area that
is free of humidity and protected from dirt. The pellets are usually
supplied in 15 kg. sacks, so storing them is very convenient.
Good quality pellets ensure good combustion, thus lowering the
emission of harmful agents into the atmosphere.
The poorer the quality of the fuel, the more
frequently will intervention be necessary for cleaning
the internal parts, such as the grate and the
combustion chamber.
15 Kg sack of fuel
The main certifications of quality for pellets in the European market are
DINplus and Ö-Norm M7135; these ensure respect of:

Calorific power: 4,9 kW/kg

Water content: max 10% of weight

Percentage of ashes: max 0,5% of weight

Diameter: 5 – 6mm

Length: max 30mm

Contents: 100% untreated wood, with no added bonding
substances (bark percentage 5% max)

Packaging: in sacks made from ecologically compatible or
biologically decomposing material

MCZ strongly recommends using certified fuel in its
stoves (DINplus e Ö-Norm M7135).
The use of fuel of inferior quality or not conforming
to the specification given above compromises the
running of your stove and can therefore lead to the
termination of the guarantee and of the
manufacturer's responsibility for the product.
MCZ pellet stoves run exclusively on pellets with a
diameter of 6 mm (only for Italy) and 6-8 mm
(European countries) with lengths that go from 5
mm to 30 mm.
2.2.
PRECAUTIONS FOR INSTALLATION
IMPORTANT!
Installation and assembly of the stove must be
carried out by qualified personnel.
The stove must be installed in a suitable position to allow the normal
operations of opening and ordinary maintenance.
The site must be:

capable of providing the environmental conditions for operation

equipped with power supply 230V 50 Hz

capable of taking an adequate system for smoke discharge

provided with external ventilation

provided with an earth connection complying with CEI 64-8
The stove must be connected to a flue pipe or an internal or
external vertical duct conforming to current standards UNI
7129 - 7131 9615.
The stove must be positioned in such a way that the electrical
plug is accessible.
IMPORTANT!
The stove must be connected to a flue pipe or a
vertical duct which can discharge the fumes at the
highest point of the building.
The fumes are however derived from the combustion
of wood products, and if they come into contact with
or close to walls, they can make dirty marks.
Also take care because the fumes are very hot but
almost invisible, and can cause burns on contact.
The holes for the passage of the smoke pipe and for
the intake of air from outside should be made before
positioning the stove unit.

OPERATING AREA
For proper functioning and a good temperature distribution, the stove
should be positioned in a location where it is able to take in the air
necessary for combustion of the pellets (about 40 m3/h must be
available), as laid down in the standard governing the installation and
in accordance with local national standards.
The volume of the room must not be less than 30 m3.
The air must come in through permanent openings made in walls (in
proximity to the stove) which give onto the outside, with a minimum
cross-section area of 100 cm2.
These openings must be made in such a way that it is not possible for
them to be obstructed in any way.
Alternatively, the air can be taken from rooms adjacent to the one
which needs ventilating, as long as they are provided with an air intake
from the outside, and are not used as bedrooms or bathrooms, and
provided there is no fire risk such as there is for example in garages,
woodsheds, and storerooms, with particular reference to what is laid
down in current standards.
It is not permissible to install the stove in bedrooms,
bathrooms or showers, or in a room where another
heating appliance is installed (fireplace, stove etc.)
which does not have its own independent air intake.
Example of pellet stove installation
Locating the stove in a room with an explosive
atmosphere is prohibited.
The floor of the room where the stove is to be
installed must be strong enough to take its weight.

If the room contains objects which are believed to be particularly
delicate, such as drapes, sofas and other furniture, their distance from
the stove should be considerably increased.
If the floor is wooden, we recommend the use of a
floor guard in compliance with the applicable
standards in force in the country of installation.

CONNECTION TO THE EXTERNAL AIR INTAKE
It is essential that at least as much air must be able to flow into the
room where the stove is installed as is required for proper combustion
in the appliance and for the ventilation of the room. This can be
effected by means of permanent openings in the walls of the room to
be ventilated, which give onto the outside, or by single or collective
ventilation ducts.
For this purpose, on the external wall near the stove, a hole must be
made with a minimum free cross-section of 100 cm². (equivalent to a
round hole of 12 cm diameter or a square hole 10x10 cm), protected by
a grille on the inside and the outside.
The air intake must also:

communicate directly with the room where the stove is installed

be protected by a grille, metal mesh or suitable guard, as long as
this does not reduce the area below the minimum.

be positioned in such a way as to be impossible to obstruct
It is not compulsory to connect the air intake directly
with the stove (so that it draws air directly from
outside), but it is essential at all events to ensure an
airflow of 50 cubic metres per hour by the use of a
hole of the dimensions given.
See standard UNI 10683.
2.5.
CONNECTION OF SMOKE DISCHARGE PIPE
When making the hole for the passage of the smoke discharge pipe, it
is necessary to take into account the possible presence of flammable
materials. If the hole has to pass through a wall made of wood or
thermolabile material, THE FITTER MUST under all circumstances
observe the minimum safe distance from all combustible materials
(value stated on the pipe certification label) and provide any additional
insulation using appropriate materials (thickness 1.35cm with minimum
thermal conductivity of 0.07 W/m°K).
2
The same is true if the stove pipe must run through vertical or
horizontal stretches passing in proximity (min.20cm) to the heatsensitive wall
As an alternative we recommend the use of insulated pipe, which can
also be used on the outside to avoid condensation.
The combustion chamber works in low pressure. The smoke duct for
the discharge of fumes will also be under low pressure when connected
to an efficient flue pipe as directed.

0,5 mt.
The flue pipe must have internal dimensions not larger than 20 x 20
cm, or diameter 20 cm. In the event of larger dimensions, or of the
flue pipe being in poor condition (for example cracks, poor insulation,
etc.), it is advisable to fit a stainless steel pipe of suitable diameter
inside the flue pipe throughout its length, right up to the top.
Check with suitable instruments that there is a minimum draught of 10
Pa.
At the bottom of the flue pipe, provide an inspection cap to allow
periodic checking and cleaning, which must be done annually.
Make a gas-tight connection to the flue pipe, using pipes and
connectors as recommended by us.

2.9. OPERATING PROBLEMS CAUSED BY DRAUGHT
DEFECTS IN THE FLUE
Of all the weather and geographical conditions which affect the
operation of a flue pipe (rain, fog, snow, altitude a.s.l., exposure to
sunlight, direction of facing), the wind is unquestionably the most
decisive. In fact, along with thermal depression caused by the
difference in temperature inside and outside of the chimney, there is
another type of depression or over-pressure: dynamic pressure caused
by the wind. An updraft always increases depression and hence
draught. A crosswind increases depression provided the cowl has been
installed properly. A downdraft always decreases depression, at times
inverting it.
Least favourable points
E.g. Downdraft at 45° of
8m/sec. Overpressure of 17
Pa
E.g. Crosswind 2: 8 m/sec
Depression of 30Pa
Downdraft
Most favourable position
WIND
High-pressure
Low-pressure zone
Besides the direction and force of the wind, the position of the flue and
the cowl with respect to the roof of the building and the surrounding
landscape is important.
The wind also influences the operation of the chimney indirectly by
creating high-pressure and low-pressure zones, not only outside the
building but inside as well. In rooms directly exposed to the wind (2),
an indoor high-pressure area can be created which can augment the
draught in stoves and fireplaces, but it can be counteracted by the
external high pressure if the cowl is situated on the side exposed to the
wind (1). On the other hand, in the rooms on the opposite side from
the direction of the wind (3), a dynamic depression can be created
which competes with the natural thermal depression developed by the
chimney, but this can be compensated for (sometimes) by locating the
flue on the opposite side from the direction of the wind (4).

1-2 = High-pressure zones

IMPORTANT!
The operation of the pellet stove is noticeably
sensitive to the conformation and position of the flue
which is adopted.
Hazardous conditions can only be overcome by
suitable setting-up of the stove carried out by
qualified MCZ personnel.

The stove body or unit must always be kept in a vertical position when
moved, and moved only using carts. Special care must be used to
protect the door and the glass from impacts that would damage them.
Moving the product must always be done with care. If possible, unpack
the stove in the area where it is going to be installed.
The materials which make up the packaging are not toxic or harmful,
so no special procedures for disposal by required.
Their storage, disposal or possible recycling are therefore the responsibility
of the final user, in compliance with current legislation on the subject.
Do not store the stove unit or its cladding without their packaging.
Position the stove without its cladding and connect it to the flue pipe.
Once the operations for connection are complete, assemble the
cladding (ceramics or steel sides).

If the stove needs to be connected to a discharge pipe which goes
through the rear wall (to connect up with the flue), take the greatest
care to make sure that the joint is not stressed.
Use the four adjustable feet (J) to get the stove correctly levelled so
that the smoke outlet (S) is lined up with the connecting pipe (H) .
The feet must be adjusted without the ceramic or steel sides, because
the adjustment occurs inside the cladding.
If the smoke outlet of the stove is forced or used
improperly to lift it or position it, the operation of the

CONNECTIONS OF HOT AIR DUCTS FOR
SUITE/CLUB/MUSA/NIMA AND TOBA COMFORT
AIR MODEL
page

E
Once the stove is in position, you can begin installation of the hot air
ducts.
Comfort Air stoves are provided with an air deflector E as standard.
This means that the rear flange for hot air outlet is connected to this
deflector, which allows the hot air to be directed to the right and left of
the room, in case the channelling of hot air is not desired.
If you wish to channel the hot air, the deflector E must be removed.
Connect the soundproofed connection F (optional) that makes the
output from square to round, and then make the various connections
with appropriate MCZ pipes and connections to divert the flow in more
hot air diffusers (120x120 mm nozzle). These ducts may also be walled
up. (SEE OPTIONALS)
The air outlet pipe can reach very high temperatures,
up to 200°C: it is therefore necessary to insulate it
properly with suitable materials, in those points
where it may come into contact with flammable
surfaces or that are affected by the temperature (e.g.
discolouration of paint, ducts for electric cables,
plasterboard, etc.); it is also necessary to protect
people and animals from voluntary or accidental
contact. In any case comply with the regulations and
laws in force in the region where the product is
installed.
F
It is advisable to provide insulation along the entire
route of the pipe to decrease dispersion and increase
the heat energy in the environment.

INSTALLATION AND USE MANUAL
In case of crossing walls built of flammable material, THE INSTALLER
MUST suitably insulate the pipe of the stove that crosses the walls,
using suitable insulating material (1.3-5 thick with a min. thermal
conductivity of 0.07 W/m°K).

A pipe which is inserted in the wall must be properly insulated so that it
does not lose heat and so that air outlet is silent.
You should use ducts of the same length so that the
air is evenly distributed. Otherwise, the air will tend
to flow through the shortest or least twisted ducts
In the example in figures 6 and 7 (front and rear view) the air duct is
an equal length totaling 8 meters, or in other words the pipes (B) will
have a length of approximately 4 meters each. In the case of ducts
with different lengths, the total must always be maximum 8 meters
(example 3 + 5 meters). In this case the heat will spread through the
rooms in an uneven manner.
The recirculation of air in the room occurs using the perforated sheet
metal placed in the rear of the stove C and the holes placed on the
metal sheet bottom
It is possible to choose the volume of air you wish to discharge from
the front part and from the rear part of the stove in an independent
manner, by adjusting the ventilation power directly with the remote
control.

Assembly of the lower panel – Suite and Club Stoves
The stove is delivered with all the ceramics packed. Therefore, before
assembling the side tiles and the top, it is necessary to insert the lower
panel.
Proceed in the following way (fig.8):
 Remove the micro-perforated sheet metal grill B on the right
side (handle side) on the upper part by removing the two
screws C.
 Remove the screw D on the sheet metal E in a way that the
profile A is no longer locked.
 At this point slightly lift the sheet metal E and remove the
profile A.
 To remove the profile A lift it (sliding it from the base) and
tilt it slightly in a way that the plugs inserted on the base
come out.
 Take the lower panel F and insert it from the right (handle
side) towards the left in a way that it enters exactly in the
housings
 Reinsert the profile A making the plugs enter the case, and
lift the sheet metal E in a way to realign the profile “A”. Work
in a way that the upper plugs of the profile “A” are inserted
in the housings of the sheet metal “E”.

These brackets B are already in place so that the ceramics C-D are
held in the best position of adherence on the stove; they have screws
with a slot for eventual adjustment (for example if the tile moves too
much or is hard to insert).
The lower tile C rests on two screws A which can be adjusted in height
so as to compensate eventual differences in size of the tiles; it is
possible to apply felt pads between one tile and another where
necessary.

4. OPERATION
4.1.
PRE-LIGHTING WARNINGS
Do not touch the stove during the first lighting, as it
is during this phase that the paint sets. If you touch
the paint, you may expose the steel surface.
If necessary, touch up the paint with the aerosol spray in the original
colour (see the section "Accessories for pellet stoves").
It is good practice to provide plenty of ventilation in
the room during the initial lighting, as the stove will
give off a small amount of smoke and smell of paint.
Do not stay near the stove, and as previously mentioned, ventilate the
room. The smoke and the smell of paint will vanish after about one
hour of operation. There are no health risks involved.
The stove will be subject to expansion and contraction during the
stages of lighting and cooling down, and may therefore make slight
creaking noises.
This phenomenon is absolutely normal, the structure being made of
sheet steel, and must not be considered a fault.
It is extremely important to be sure not to take the stove to full heat
straight away, but to bring it gradually up to temperature.
If in manual mode, use low heating powers (for example 1a-2a-3a ).
During subsequent use, you will be able to make use of all available
heating power (e.g. 4a-5a ).
In this way you will avoid damage to the ceramic panels, the welds and
the steel structure.
At first lighting the stove is already in manual mode.
At first, it is advisable to use the only low and
medium heating levels (from first to third power
level).
Do

PRE-LIGHTING CHECK
Check that all the safety conditions described above have been met.
Make sure you have read and completely understood the contents of
this instruction booklet.
Remove any components which might burn from the firebox and from
the glass (various instructions and adhesive labels).
Check that the grate A is properly positioned and rests correctly on the
base.
A
After long periods of disuse, remove from the hopper (using
a vacuum cleaner with an extension) any remains of
pellets which have lain there for some time, since they may
have absorbed moisture, which changes their original
characteristics and makes them unsuitable for burning.
4.2.1. Note on first ignition
The first attempt at ignition may not be successful,
since the feeder screw is empty and it is not always
able to fill the grate with required amount of pellets
in time to ensure normal ignition
CANCEL THE ALARM (A02) CONDITION FROM THE
EMERGENCY PANEL (see paragraph 7.2), REMOVE
PELLETS IN THE GRATE AND REPEAT LIGHTING
After repeated attempts at lighting, if there is no flame even though
pellets are flowing normally, check that the grate is correctly
positioned. It must be placed where it adheres perfectly to its
housing and free of any ash incrustations. If after this check no
abnormalities are found, it means that there may be a problem with the
stove components or that installation may not have been carried out
correctly.
REMOVE THE PELLETS FROM THE BURNER AND
CONTACT AN AUTHORISED MCZ TECHNICIAN.
4.3.
LOADING THE PELLETS
Fuel is loaded from the upper part of the stove by opening a door. Pour
the pellets in the hopper. Pour the pellets in the hopper; when empty it
holds almost two sacks (about 25 kg)
This is easier if performed in two steps:

Pour half of the contents into the hopper and wait for the fuel
to settle on the bottom.

Then pour in the rest
Never remove the protection grille in the hopper.
When filling, do not let the sack of pellets touch any
hot surfaces.
Do not place any type of fuel in the hopper other than
pellets that are compliant with the specifications
provided previously.

This mode enables/ disables when the remote control is switched on by
pressing button B for 5 seconds.
ECO mode is an automatic mode with the only difference that if the
temperature set is reached and maintained for the following 20 minutes

If the room is not sufficiently insulated the flame modulation does not
allow the set temperature to remain satisfied for 20 consecutive
minutes and the product therefore does not shut down.
NOTE: We recommend that you use ECO mode only in wellinsulated rooms to prevent the appliance from starting up and
shutting down too frequently.
The remote control remains switched on, even while the product is
switched off due to ECO mode, to indicate that this shut down is only
temporary. Shutting down the product using button A exits ECO mode
and the product remains switched off.
In ECO mode you can also enable up to 6 automatic start-up/ shut
down time frames (E1 – E6). These are separate from those in the
TIMER mode (P1 – P6). If these time frames have been enabled the
message TIMER-ECO appears (figure 5) and is shown permanently

If there is an operating anomaly, the stove goes into alarm shutdown
mode and informs the user of the type of problem that has occurred via
a 3-figure code displayed on the rear emergency panel.
The alarm is permanently signalled by the corresponding 3-figure code,
by a flashing red light on the emergency panel, and, for the first ten
minutes of the alarm, by a periodic acoustic signal. To take the stove
out of alarm conditions and restore its normal operation, read the
instructions in the next two paragraphs.
The table below describes the possible alarms signalled by the stove,
associated to the respective code that appears on the emergency

reset the system is useless.
The cause of the shutdown is shown on the display.
WHAT TO DO:
If “A03” appears: the structure is too hot because the product has
been operating for too long at maximum power, or it is poorly
ventilated, or the air fans are faulty. When the stove is sufficiently cold,
press button B on the control panel or OFF on the remote control to
cancel the alarm A03. Once the alarm is cancelled it is possible to
relight the stove normally.
If “A04” appears: the stove will shut off automatically. Let the stove
cool off for a few minutes, then re-light it.
Control the exhaust of the smoke and
check the type of pellet being used.
If “A05” appears: it is caused by the prolonged opening of the fire
door or by substantial air infiltration (e.g. smoke fan inspection plug
missing). If not caused by these factors control and if necessary clean
the smoke duct and the flue pipe. (it is recommended that this
operation be conducted by a specialist MCZ technician).
Only after the cause of the blockage has been permanently
eliminated can a fresh attempt to relight the stove be made.

8. MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
ATTENTION!
All cleaning of all parts must be carried out with the
stove completely cold and unplugged.
The stove does not need much maintenance if used with
certified quality pellets.
8.1.
DAILY AND WEEKLY CLEANING BY THE USER
Example of clean grate
8.1.1. Before each lighting
Using a suitable tool clean the grate “F” of ash and any incrustation
which could obstruct the passage of air.
In the case of pellet depletion, unburnt pellet in the grate could
accumulate in the hopper. Always empty the residuals from the grate
prior to each lighting.
REMEMBER THAT ONLY A CORRECTLY POSITIONED
AND CLEAN GRATE CAN GUARANTEE THE OPTIMAL
LIGHTING AND OPERATION OF YOUR PELLET STOVE.
Example of dirty grate
For good cleaning of the grate A, pull it completely out of its housing
and thoroughly clean the grate and holes on the bottom. If you use
good-quality pellets, you will normally only need to use a paintbrush to
restore the perfect condition of the component. For tough incrustations,
use the steel tool provided with the stove.
8.1.2. Check every 2/3 days
Clean and empty the ash drawer, watching out for hot ash.
Only if the ash is completely cold, it is possible to use a vacuum
cleaner to remove it. Use a drum-type vacuum cleaner that is suitable
for picking up particles of a certain size.
Experience, and the quality of the pellets used, will determine the
frequency of cleaning.
It is however advisable not to let it exceed 2 or 3 days.
Once the operation is finished, reinsert the ash drawer below the grate
making sure it is well inserted

8.1.3. Cleaning the glass
For cleaning the ceramic glass, the use of a dry brush is recommended,
or if it is very dirty, the special spray detergent, applying a small
quantity then cleaning with a cloth.
ATTENTION!
Do not use abrasive products and do not spray the
cleaning product on the glass of the painted parts or
on the gaskets of the fire door (ceramic fibre cord).
Cleaning the glass
8.1.4. Cleaning of the air filter
At the lower part of the stove, where there is the inlet pipe for
combustion air Ø 5 cm, at the time of installation of the stove a metal
mesh air filter must be inserted to prevent dirt from getting into the
motor body and internal sensor.
It is advisable to check every 15/20 days whether the filter is clean.
Remove lint or any other material which may have been trapped by the
filter.
Checking and cleaning will be required more frequently if there are pets
in the home.
For cleaning, just turn the knob that holds the filter on the air intake
pipe and remove the filter by turning in the direction indicated by the
arrow. Clean it with a brush, damp cloth or compressed air.
Removing the air filter for cleaning
The filter is made of metallic mesh. It is soft and
malleable to the touch. Therefore, when cleaning it,
be careful not to crush it or damage it in any other
way. If it is broken it must be replaced
ATTENTION!
Never operate the stove without the air filter. MCZ
shall not be held liable for damage to internal
components if this instruction is not followed.

8.2.2. CLEANING THE LOWER COMPARTMENT
Remove the ash drawer C, open the lower inspection plug B, by
unscrewing the four screws, and with a vacuum cleaner, remove all ash
and soot which has built up in the heat exchanger and in the smoke
extraction fan.
CLEANING OF SMOKE DUCT AND GENERAL CHECKS:
Clean the smoke discharge system, especially in the area of the tee
connectors, curves and any horizontal stretches of pipe.
For information on cleaning the flue pipe, contact a professional
chimney sweep.
Check the seal of the ceramic fibre gaskets on the door of the stove. If
necessary, order new gaskets from the retailer for replacement or
contact an authorized service centre to carry out this work.
Cleaning the lower compartment
ATTENTION:
The frequency with which the smoke discharge
system is cleaned should be determined based on the
type of use that is made of the stove and the type of
installation.
MCZ suggests relying on an authorized service centre
for end-of-season cleaning and maintenance, who
will carry out all of the previously mentioned work
and make a general check of the stove's components.
8.2.3. Shutting the stove down (end of season)
At the end of season, before shutting down the stove, we recommend
completely removing pellets from the hopper with the use of a vacuum
cleaner with an extension.
During periods of disuse, the stove must be unplugged and
placed in a dry place protected from the elements. For greater
safety, especially if there are children around, we recommend
removing the supply cable from the rear of the stove.
Upon re-start, when pressing the main switch (located on the back of
the stove) does not make the control panel display light up, it could
mean that the service fuse needs replacing.
On the rear of the stove there is a fuse holding compartment which is
located underneath the supply socket. Use a screwdriver to open the
fuse-holder compartment and if necessary replace them (3.15 AT
delayed)
8.2.4. Check of internal components
ATTENTION!
The check of the internal electro-mechanical
components must be carried out only by qualified
personnel with technical knowledge of electricity and
combustion.
We recommend that an annual maintenance service is carried out,
preferably under a programmed service contract. The essential part of
this service is a visual and functional check on the internal components:
