SAFETY NOTICE:
Please read this entire manual before you install and use your new
room heater. Failure to follow instructions may result in property
damage, bodily injury, or even death. Contact local building or fire
officials about restrictions and installation inspection requirements
in your area.
Planning The Installation
We suggest that you have an authorized Travis Industries dealer install your stove. If you install the
stove yourself, your authorized dealer should review your plans for installation.
Check with local building officials for any permits required for installation of this stove and notify your
insurance company before proceeding with installation.
Preparation for Installation
•
Check for damage to the exterior of the stove (dents should be reported, scratches can be fixed by
applying touch up paint).
•
Check the interior of the firebox (replace cracked firebrick and make sure baffle is in place).
The stove can be lightened by removing the firebricks and baffle. (pg 33) - replace before operation.
Stove Installation Considerations
The table below details the six most common types of installations and the considerations for each
type. Alternative methods of installation are available if they comply with local building codes.
Installation Type
Considerations
Standard Ceiling with a Factory Built Chimney

(Page 14)
• Cathedral style chimney support required
Exterior Factory Built Chimney
(Page 15)
• Uses two elbows to route chimney outside
• Provides best draft
• Provides best draft
• Exterior chimney is hidden from the room
• Elbows reduce draft
• Optional exterior chase reduces cold air blockage
Hearth Stove Positive Connection
(Page 15)
• Utilizes existing masonry or zero clearance (metal) chimney
• Provides good draft due to full reline
• Easier to clean than direct or horizontal hearth stove
Hearth Stove Direct Connection
(Page 16)
• Utilizes existing masonry or zero clearance (metal) chimney
• Requires construction of a "block-off plate"
• Draft reduced due to elbows & chimney cross section

Drafting
Performance
•
•
This appliance relies upon natural draft to operate. External forces, such as wind,
barometric pressure, topography, or factors of the home (negative pressure from exhaust
fans, chimneys, air infiltration, etc.), may adversely affect draft. Travis Industries can not be
responsible for external forces leading to less than optimal performance.
Standard residential installations may use single-wall connector (Mobile-Homes may n o t)
Standard residential installations with reduced clearance connector may use the clearance
determined by the manufacturer of the connector for the connector to wall clearance or the clearance
listed in this manual. Offsets must be used to maintain the stove to wall clearance. Mobile homes
must use the clearances listed in this manual under "Additional Requirements for Mobile Home
Installations".

SAFETY NOTICE:
Please read this entire manual before you install and use your new
room heater. Failure to follow instructions may result in property
damage, bodily injury, or even death. Contact local building or fire
officials about restrictions and installation inspection requirements
in your area.
Planning The Installation
We suggest that you have an authorized Travis Industries dealer install your stove. If you install the
stove yourself, your authorized dealer should review your plans for installation.
Check with local building officials for any permits required for installation of this stove and notify your
insurance company before proceeding with installation.
Preparation for Installation
•
Check for damage to the exterior of the inserts (dents should be reported, scratches can be fixed by
applying touch up paint).
•
Check the interior of the firebox (replace cracked firebrick and make sure baffle is in place).
The stove can be lightened by removing the firebricks and baffle. (pg 26) - replace before operation.
Insert Installation Considerations
•
This insert is approved for installation into an existing masonry or zero clearance (metal) fireplace.
Depending upon your installation concerns, several options are yours to provide the most desirable
installation. The sections that follow detail the requirements that must be met for a safe installation.
To further help installation, the most common types of installations are explained in table below. Prior
to installing your insert make a detailed plan with dimensions to double-check them against all of the
requirements listed.

Drafting Performance
This appliance relies upon natural draft to operate. External forces, such as wind, barometric
pressure, topography, or factors of the home (negative pressure from exhaust fans, chimneys, air
infiltration, etc.), may adversely affect draft. Travis Industries can not be responsible for external
forces leading to less than optimal performance.
Leveling Bolt Installation
Two leveling bolts are included to level the insert if the fireplace has a stepped-up hearth. To install,
raise the rear of the insert up and insert the leveling bolts into the holes in the rear corners of the
insert. Adjust the bolts until they extend the same height as the hearth steps up. After the insert is
installed, fine-tune the leveling bolts to level the insert (see the illustration).
This distance is the
hearth step-up. The
leveling bolts should
stick out this far from the
base of the insert.

Insert Installation (for qualified installers only)
Block-Off Plate Installation
Whenever this appliance is installed with a direct connection a block-off plate, or other noncombustible seal-off device (e.g. damper adapter), will need to be installed. This device is used to
seal the chimney, insuring no smoke enters the home and providing the chimney system with a seal
to promote draft. The directions below detail the steps for construction and installation of a block-off
plate.
1. Determine a location for the block-off plate at the top of the firebox below the damper area (make
it high enough to allow installation of the connection pipe). The location should be level and in an
area where it can be mounted easily. Measure the width at the rear ("A") and front ("B") of the
firebox at the height where the block-off plate will be installed (see the illustration below). Then
measure the depth of the location where the block-off plate will be installed ("C").
NOTE: Most masonry fireplaces have square fireboxes while certain zero-clearance (metal)
fireplaces often have domed firebox tops. This makes zero-clearance block-off plates more
difficult to install. To simplify the procedure, insulation may be used to seal the rounded edges.
2. Make a cardboard template of the measurements, but add a 2" flange to each side. This flange
will be used to mount the block-off plate to the inside of the firebox. Bend the flanges downwards
on the template and place it inside the fireplace. If the template fits correctly in its planned
location, go to the next step. If it does not, make a new template with the appropriate corrections
until it fits correctly.
3. With the template in place, mark the location of the flue (see “Dimensions” on page 6). This
location approximates the center of the flue when the insert is in place (a slight offset may occur
based upon insert and block-off plate placement). Remove the template and cut a 6 1/4"
diameter hole centered on this mark.
4. Make the block-off plate of 24 gage or thicker steel to match the template. Drill two holes in each
flange for mounting the plate.
5. Mount the block-off plate using masonry screws.
NOTE: Use sheet metal screws on zero-clearance (metal) fireplaces (screws need only be long
enough to penetrate the first layer of metal).
6. Insulate the block-off plate using high-temperature fiberglass insulation (Kaowool® or equivalent)
and furnace cement (allow the cement to dry for at least 24 hours before burning).
7. After placing the appliance and installing the pipe through the block-off plate, use hightemperature fiberglass insulation and furnace cement to seal any cracks between the pipe and
block-off plate.

Safety Notice:
If this appliance is not properly installed, a house fire may result. For your safety, follow the installation
directions. Contact local building or fire officials about restrictions and installation inspection
requirements in your area.
Read and follow all of the warnings on pages 4 and 5 of this manual.
Before Your First Fire
Verify the Installation
Before starting the stove, verify that the stove is properly installed and all of the requirements in this
manual have been followed.
Keep all flammable materials 36" away from the front of the stove (drapes, furniture, clothing, etc.).
Curing the Paint
AA
A
AA
AA
A
AA
2 to 4 hours
This heater uses a heat-activated paint that will emit some fumes
while starting the first fire. Open doors and windows to the room
to vent these fumes. This typically lasts two to four hours. You
may also notice oil burning off of the interior of the heater. This
rust-stopping agent will soon dissipate.
Door Gasket - The door gasket might adhere to the paint on
the front of the heater. Leave the door slightly ajar for the first fire
and be careful when opening the door after the first fire.
Over-Firing the Stove
This stove was designed to operate at a high temperature. But due to differences in vent
configuration, fuel, and draft, this appliance can be operated at an excessive temperature. If the
stove top or other area starts to glow red, you are over-firing the stove. Shut the air control down to
low and allow the stove to cool before proceeding.
Opening the Door
Turn the handle clockwise to un-latch.
Swing the door open.
The door becomes hot during use. Use a glove to open the door if the handle is hot.
To prevent smoke from entering the room, open the door a small amount and let air enter the firebox.
This stabilizes the air flow before opening the door completely.

Starting a Fire
Since the dawn of time man has debated the best way to start a fire. Some use the boy-scout "teepee", some prefer the "tic-tac-toe" stack. Either way, review the hints and warnings below to ensure
proper fire starting.
•
Make sure the air control is pushed in. If additional air is needed, open the doors 1/4" during the first
five minutes of start-up.
N e v e r use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start
or "freshen up" a fire in this stove. Keep all such liquids well away from the stove while it is in use.
If using a firestarter, use only products specifically designed for stoves - follow the manufacturer's
instructions carefully.
If the smoke does not pass up the chimney, ball up one sheet of newspaper, place it in the center of the
firebox and light it. This should start the chimney drafting (this eliminates "cold air blockage").
Use plenty of kindling to ensure the stove reaches a proper temperature. Once the kindling is burning
rapidly, place a few larger pieces of wood onto the fire.

The air control may take several minutes to influence the burn rate. When making adjustments, you may
wish to let the stove burn for 10 minutes to gauge performance.
Ash Removal
ASHES
Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight fitting lid. The closed container of ashes
should be placed on a noncombustible floor or on the ground, 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.

This stove is large enough to accommodate burn times up to eight hours. Follow the steps below to
achieve an overnight burn.
Move the air control to high burn and let the stove become hot (burn for approximately 15 minutes).
Load as much wood as possible. Use large pieces if possible.
Let the stove burn on high for 15 minutes to keep the stove hot, then turn the air control to low.
In the morning the stove should still be hot, with embers in the coal bed. Stir the coals and load small
pieces of wood to re-ignite the fire, if desired.
Differences if chimney height and draft may lower overall burn times.
Normal Operating Sounds
Creaks and Clicks:
The 3/16" and 1/4" steel may creak or click when the
stove heats up and cools down - this is normal.
Blower Sounds:
The blower will make a slight "humm" as it
pushes air through the stove.
Hint:
Make sure the leveling bolts on legs are extended preventing the hearth from amplifying any vibrations.

Hints for Burning
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Get the appliance hot before adjusting to low burn
Use smaller pieces of wood during start-up and high burns to increase temperature
Use larger pieces of wood for overnight or sustained burns
Stack the wood tightly together to establish a longer burn
Leave a bed of ashes (1/2" deep) to allow for longer burns
Be considerate of neighbors & the environment: burn dry wood only
Burn small, intense fires instead of large, slow burning fires when possible
Learn your appliance's operating characteristics to obtain optimum performance

Why Dry Wood is Key
Wet wood, when burned, must release water stored within the wood. This cools the fire, creates
creosote, and hampers a complete burn. Ask any experienced wood burner and he or she will agree:
dry wood is crucial to good performance.
Wood Cutting and Storage
Cut wood to length and
chop into quarters.
Store the wood off the ground in a
covered area. Allow for airflow
around the wood to dry the wood.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause
Smoke Enters Room
During Start-Up
•
Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.
•
Close the doors - if the flame is not getting enough air,
first make sure the air control is open (all the way in).
If additional air is needed, a small crack in the door is
all that is needed.
•
Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.
•
Not enough starter paper - use additional newspaper if
necessary.
•
Not enough air - first make sure the air control is open
(all the way in). If additional air is needed, a small
crack in the door is all that is needed.
•
Let the air stabilize before fully opening the door. Push
the air control in before opening the door. Then open
the door approximately 1 inch. Let air go into the
firebox for a few seconds. Once the smoke appears to
be flowing up the chimney consistently, open the door.
•
Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases a
small amount of smoke may enter the home. Adding
more pipe or a draft-inducing cap may help.
•
Wood is Wet - see the section "Selecting Wood" on
page 27 for details on wood.
•
Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases
the fire may burn slowly. Adding more pipe or a draftinducing cap may help.
•
Air Control is Not Wide Open - Make sure the air
control is all the way in. Slide the control back and
forth to insure the control is not stuck.
•
Stove is Not Up to Temperature - This is normal. The
blower will come on when the stove is hot - usually 15
to 30 minutes.
•
Electricity is Cut to the Blower - Check the household
breaker or fuse to make sure it is operable.
•
This appliance burns for up to 8 hours. Depending
upon wood, draft, and other factors, the burn time may
be shorter. Make sure the doors are sealing and not
allowing air into the firebox - See the section "Door and
Glass Inspection" on page 30 for details.
•
Check the ash bed for coals. Often, coals are still
glowing under a slight bed of flyash. By raking these
into a pile you can re-start your stove quickly.

Maintaining Your Appliance
29
Failure to properly maintain and inspect your appliance may reduce the performance and life of the
appliance, void your warranty, and create a fire hazard.
Daily Maintenance (while stove is in use)
Remove Ash (if necessary)
Ash removal is n o t required once it builds up. 1/2" to 1" of ash may be desirable because it slows the
burn rate. Generally, remove ash once it has built up over 1". Follow the directions below to remove
ash.
1
Let the stove cool completely (at least two hours after the last coal has extinguished).
2
Place a cloth or cardboard protector over the hearth to catch ash and protect against
scratching.
3
Open the doors and scoop the ash into a metal container with a tight fitting lid. The
closed container of ashes should be placed on a noncombustible floor or on the ground,
away from all combustible materials, pending final disposal.
ASHES
Improperly disposed ashes lead to fires. Hot ashes placed in cardboard boxes, dumped in back yards,
or stored in garages, are recipes for disaster.
Wood-burning stoves are inherently dirty. During cleaning have a vacuum ready to catch spilled ash
(make sure ash is entirely extinguished).
There are vacuum cleaners specifically made to remove ash (even if the ash is warm). Contact your
dealer for details.
Clean the Glass (if necessary)
This appliance has an airwash to keep the glass clean. However, burning un-seasoned wood or
burning on lower burn rates leads to dirtier glass (especially on the sides). Clean the glass by
following the directions below.
Allow the stove to fully cool. Apply glass
cleaner or soapy water to the inside of
the glass. Wipe with newspaper or a
paper towel.
AA
AA
For Stubborn Creosote:
Dip newspaper or a paper towel in cool
ashes and wipe it on the glass. The ash
acts as a light abrasive.
AAA
AAA
The glass will develop a very slight haze over time. This is normal and will not affect viewing of the fire.

Monthly Maintenance (while appliance is in use)
Make sure the appliance has fully cooled prior to conducting service.
Door and Glass Inspection
The door must form an air-tight seal to the firebox for the stove to work correctly. Inspect the door
gasket to make sure it forms an air-tight seal to the firebox.
The door can be lifted off the hinges if extensive repairs are conducted.
AA
AA
High-Temperature anti-sieze
may be used on the door
hinges to eliminate squeaks.
AA
AA
If the glass is damaged, replace
it - see “Replacement Parts” for
details.
Use wood stove gasket
cement to re-adhere
loose gasket.
Severely frayed or thread-bare
gasket should be replaced.
The door latch should pull the door against the face of the stove (but not so tight as to not allow full
handle rotation). If the latch requires adjustment, follow the directions below.

Creosote - Formation and Need for Removal
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors, which combine with expelled
moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slowburning 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 should be inspected at least once
every two months during the heating season to determine if a creosote buildup has occurred. If
creosote has accumulated, it should be removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.
If you are not certain of creosote inspection, contact your dealer or local chimney sweep for a full
inspection. Excess creosote buildup may cause a chimney fire, that may result in property damage,
injury, or death.

Yearly Maintenance
Make sure the appliance has fully cooled prior to conducting service.
Touch Up Paint
Included with the owner's pack of this appliance is a can of Stove-Brite®
paint. To touch up nicks or dulled paint, apply the paint while the
appliance is cool. Sand rusted or damaged areas before preparation (use
120 grit sandpaper). Clean and dry the area to prepare the surface. Wait
at least one hour before starting the appliance. The touched up area will
appear darker than the surrounding paint until it cures from heat. Curing
will give off some fumes while curing – open windows to ventilate.
Touch-Up
Paint
Cleaning the Air Duct and Blower (if applicable)
Use a vacuum to clean the air ducts (channels). This prevents dust from burning and creating odors.
The optional blower should be vacuumed every year to remove any buildup of dust, lint, etc.
BOTTOM OF
STOVE
Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any
buildup on the screens of the blower.
Firebrick and Baffle Inspection
Use the illustration on page 33 as a reference for checking the following items. Make sure the
appliance is cool before proceeding.
Baffle Firebricks - check the bricks along the ceiling of the firebox to make sure they are intact and
have no gaps between them. Slide the bricks to eliminate any gaps.
Baffle Supports - make sure the front and back baffle supports in are place and not degraded. Slight
scaling or rusting of the metal is normal.
Secondary Air Tubes - Check the two air tubes and collars to make sure they are intact and not
severely deteriorated. Slight scaling or rusting of the metal is normal. Make sure the roll pins (or
push pins) hold the air tubes in place.
Floor and Wall Firebricks - replace any severely damaged firebrick along the side or floor of the
firebox.

Replacing the Glass
The glass must not contact the door retainer or door shell directly. The glass gasket insulates the glass
to prevent cracking. Do not over-tighten the door retainer.
The glass gasket attaches to the perimeter of the glass. Remove the screws and door retainer to access
the glass. When installing, do not over-tighten the screws.
Replacing the Door Gasket
The door gasket inserts into the outer groove of the door retainer. Stove gasket cement holds it in place.
Before installing, remove any residual cement. Lay the gasket in place (start at the lower left corner) and
cut off any excess gasket (do not stretch the gasket. The cement fully cures with heat from the stove.
You may need to open and close the door repeatedly to get the gasket to seat fully.
Replacing the Door Handle
The door handle consists of several components. See the illustration above for a component list. For
details on adjusting the door see page 30.
