Gas Line Requirements
•
The gas line must be installed in accordance with all local codes, if any; if not, follow ANSI 223.1 and
the requirements listed below.
•
The fireplace and gas control valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig. For pressures under 1/2 psig,
isolate the gas supply piping by closing the manual shutoff valve.
•
Leak test all gas line joints and the gas control valve prior to and after starting the fireplace.
Fuel
•
This fireplace is designed either for natural gas or for propane (but not for both). Check the sticker on
the top of the gas control valve to make sure the correct fuel is used.
Gas Line Connection
•
A manual shutoff valve is required within for installation (within 3’ of the heater). T-Handle gas cocks
are required in Massachusetts in compliance with code 248CMR.
•
Installation must be performed by a qualified installer, service agency or the gas supplier (In
Massachusetts a licensed plumber/gasfitter).
The 1" diameter access hole is located 2-7/8" above the base of the fireplace. Cut
an "X" in the gasket covering the inlet and insert the gas line through the gasket.

ACID WASH WARNING: Before installing the faceplate, make sure any masonry that has been
treated with acid wash has been properly neutralized (this is used primarily with brick faces). Acid wash
(muriatic acid) is used to remove excess mortar. If not properly neutralized with an ammonia solution,
the gold face may develop a permanent tarnish when the acid evaporates over time. Contact your

Turn the flame adjust knob to its highest position - the flames should not be sooty or come in
continuous contact with the firebox ceiling. Check the flame on low position. The flames should burn
off of each burner hole. If the heater does not work correctly, contact your dealer for a remedy.
FINE TUNING THE EMBER-FYRE™
BURNER
Each installation is affected by altitude, vent configuration, and fuel quality. Because of this, the restrictor and air
shutter may need to be fine tuned to each installation. Follow the hints below to fine-tune the burner for
optimum performance and aesthetics.
Restrictor Hints:
Set the restrictor to the position suggested in the vent configuration table. Turn the heater on and allow it to reach
temperature (15 min.). If the flames indicate there is excessive draft due to altitude or climate, you may wish to adju
restrictor to a more restrictive position (higher number). Active, flickering short flames are an indication of excessiv
draft. If the flames lift off of the burner holes, this indicates not enough draft (restrictor is set too open). After
adjustments are made the unit must be cooled down to room temperature and restarted to make sure that the rest
is not so severe that the pilot will drop out when it is restarted. If the pilot does drop out reduce the restriction until
operate continuously.
Air Shutter Hints:
• For more glow, open the air shutter, however, this will make the flames more blue.
• For yellow flames, close the air shutter, however, this may create less glow.

The flames should burn right

Starting The Pilot Flame
The pilot flame is required to ignite the main
burners (it also plays a safety role). It should be
left on once lit. It will stay lit unless the gas control
valve is turned to "OFF". However, the pilot will
go out if the gas is shut off, the propane tank runs
out (or low) or if the stove malfunctions. If the pilot
turns off frequently, call your dealer for
information. To start the pilot follow the directions
below:
WARNING:
When lighting or re-lighting the pilot, the
glass must be removed (see page 25).
a
Remove the glass (see page 25 for details).
b
Push the gas control knob in slightly and turn it
to the "OFF" position. The knob will not turn
from "ON" to "OFF" unless the knob is
depressed slightly. Wait five minutes to let any
gas that may have accumulated inside the
firebox escape. If you smell leaking gas, follow
the directions on the cover "IF YOU SMELL
GAS".
c
Turn the gas control knob to the "PILOT"
position and press the knob in, this will allow gas
to flow to the pilot light. Press the button on the
pilot igniter repeatedly until you see the pilot
light.
WARNING:
If the pilot does not light after 15
seconds, release the knob and call
your dealer for service. Do not attempt
to light pilot until service has been
performed.
a

Operation
31
Starting the Fireplace for the First Time
•
Burn the heater at a high setting with the blower off for an extended period (up to 48 hours). This will
cure the painted surfaces. Fumes from the paint curing and oil burning off the steel will occur. This is
normal. We recommend opening a window to vent the room.
•
Condensation may appear on the glass each time you start the fireplace - this is normal.
•
Blue Flames will occur on the fireplace when it first comes on. After fifteen minutes the flames will
turn a more realistic yellow and orange color.
•
Certain installations use a remote "wall switch" to turn the fireplace on and off. If this is the case, leave
the ON/OFF switch "ON".
Turning the Fireplace On and Off

•
Do not place any combustible items on top of or directly in front of the fireplace, even temporarily. The
optional thermostat may start the fireplace causing a combustible item to ignite.
•
If the fireplace turns on and off frequently while using the thermostat, you may want to adjust the flame
height down until it produces just enough heat needed.
Adjusting the Flame Height
•
Your fireplace has an adjustable flame to tailor the look and heat output to your specific needs. It is
adjusted by turning the middle dial on the gas control valve.

It is not unusual, especially on
Propane (LP) appliances, to
experience a "pop" when the
burner is shut off.
Gas Control Valve
As the gas control valve is turned on
and off you will hear a dull clicking
sound. This is the valve opening up
and shutting down.
Blower Snap Disk
This part can produce a clicking
sound as it turns the blower on
and off.
Normal Operating Odors
This appliance has several areas that reach high temperatures. Dust or other particles on these areas
may burn and create an odor. This is normal during start-up. You may notice the smell is more acute if
the appliance was left idle for a long period.

Failure to inspect and maintain the fireplace may lead to improper combustion and a potentially
dangerous situation. We recommend the following procedures be done by a qualified technician.
Check the pilot flame. It should touch approximately 3/8" of the top of the thermopile and touch the
top of the thermocouple (see illustration below). If it does not, contact your dealer for service.
Shut off gas to the fireplace by turning the gas control knob to "OFF" (see step A under "Starting the
Pilot" on page 30). Let the fireplace cool for 15 minutes. Remove the faceplate (see the instructions
included with the face) and glass (see page 25).
Remove the log set (NOTE: the logs are very fragile - see page 26). If severely deteriorated,
replace. Check the logs for sooting. A small amount of soot along the bottom of the logs is normal. If
excessive sooting is found, the fireplace will require adjustment. Contact your dealer.
Clean the burner (especially the burner holes) and inspect the following:
•
Make sure the burner is not warped, cracked, or damaged.
•
Check the firebox and area around the pilot to make sure there is no warping or damage.
If any problem is found, discontinue use and contact your dealer for service.
Check the walls and ceiling of the firebox for
deterioration.

Replace the log set. Clean and replace the glass (use non-abrasive cleaner - if damaged, replace).
Make sure the gasket along the perimeter of the glass contacts the face of the firebox and forms an airtight seal. If it does not, re-align or replace the gasket to insure an air-tight seal. Replace the faceplate.
Inspect behind the access door. Clean if necessary. Check the gas control valve gas lines. If damage
is found, discontinue use and contact your dealer for service. Clean the air channels and ducts.
Start the pilot and turn on the main burner. The flames should be orange/yellow and not touch the top
of the firebox. If the pilot or main burners do not burn correctly, contact your dealer for service.
Monitor the blower operation.
Remove any debris or vegetation near the vent termination. Contact your dealer if any sooting or
deterioration is found near the vent termination.

How this Fireplace Works
•
This fireplace was designed with safety as the primary concern. Many of the components inside this
fireplace are for safety purposes. Therefore, only certified gas service technicians should service this
fireplace.
What Turns the Main Burners On and Off
When heated, the thermopile
generates electricity (a very small
amount measured in "Millivolts").
This electricity is
used to operate the
main burners.
The main burners
are switched on and
off using the
electricity generated
by the thermopile.
The ON/OFF switch,
remote control, or
thermostat control
the circuit to the main
burner.
MAIN BURNER
This fireplace uses a millivolt system to control its operation (a millivolt is a very small amount of electricity). The
thermopile and thermocouple generate electricity when heated by the pilot flame. This electricity is used to
operate the gas valve. Without enough electricity, the gas valve will not turn on. That is why when starting the pilot
the gas control knob has to be pressed in long enough for the thermocouple to heat up and generate enough
electricity. The thermopile provides power for the ON/OFF switch, remote control, or thermostat (see the
illustration below). Because the thermopile generates the electricity needed to turn the fireplace on and off, this
fireplace can be operated when the power is out (although the blower will not run).
ON
OFF
What Prevents Gas Buildup
•
This appliance utilizes a high-technology gas valve in conjunction with a pilot flame to ensure no gas
builds up inside the firebox.
•
The thermocouple (next to the pilot) senses when the pilot flame is lit. If the pilot flame goes out, this
thermocouple no longer generates electricity, causing the gas valve to automatically shut off all gas to
the heater, preventing the pilot from spilling gas into the firebox.
Pilot Flame
The pilot flame is a time-proven
component that eliminates the possibility
of gas buildup inside the firebox.
Gas Valve
This high-technology valve automatically
shuts off all gas if it does not receive a signal
from the thermocouple. If any component is
damaged or sensing a malfunction, or if the
wiring is damaged, it will shut off all gas.
Thermocouple
The thermocouple generates a small
amount of electricity. If the pilot flame
goes out, the gas valve automatically
shuts off all gas.
© Travis Industries
External Shut Off Valve
This valve is placed on the gas line
to shut off gas to the appliance
during maintenance procedures.
Ceramic Glass
The glass in your heater is the most
durable glass available. It has been
tested to be extremely resistant to
breakage from temperature changes.
