SERVICED BY A QUALIFIED INSTALLER to conform with
local codes. Installation practices vary from region to region and it is important to know the specifics that apply to
your area,
for example: in Massachusetts State:
• The fireplace damper must be removed or welded in the open
position prior to installation of a fireplace insert or gas log.
• The appliance off valve must be a “T” handle gas cock.
• The flexible connector must not be longer than 36 inches.
• The appliance is not approved for installation in a bedroom or
bathroom unless the unit is a direct vent sealed combustion
product.
• WARNING: This product must be installed by a licensed
plumber or gas fitter when installed within the commonwealth
of Massachusetts.
In absence of local codes, install to the current National
Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1, or the current CAN/CGA
B149, Installation Codes.
Purge all gas lines with the glass door of the
fireplace removed. Assure that a continuous gas
flow is at the burner before installing the door.
Under extreme vent configurations, allow several
minutes (5-15) for the flame to stabilize after ignition.
Altitudes greater than 4000ft. require a minimum
vent run of 12ft.
The fireplace and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess
of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa). The fireplace must be isolated from
the gas supply piping system by closing its individual
manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the
gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or
less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
A 1/8 inch NPT plug, accessible for test gauge connection,
must be installed immediately upstream of the gas supply
connection to the stove.
This fireplace must be connected to any accepted lined
chimney system listed to ULC-S635M (in Canada) or UL1777 (in USA). The venting connection must be in compliance with the vent manufacturers installation instructions.
The draft hood must be installed so it is in the same atmospheric pressure zone as the combustion air inlet to the
fireplace.
Provide adequate ventilation and combustion air. Provide adequate accessibility clearance for servicing and
operating the fireplace. Never obstruct the front opening of the fireplace.
This insert must be recessed into a vented noncombustible woodburning fireplace (prefabricated or masonry) only.
The minimum fireplace size in which the heater is to be
installed is:
HEIGHT 17½ inches WIDTH 25½ inches DEPTH 16½ inches
The minimum distance, from the bottom of a combustible
mantle projecting 6" maximum from the wall to the top of
the unit, is 8".
W415-0120 / E / 01.11.05
The fireplace, when installed, must be electrically connected and grounded in accordance with local codes. In
the absence of local codes, use the current CSA C22.1
CANADIAN ELECTRICAL CODE in Canada or the ANSI/
NFPA 70 NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE in the United
States. The blower power cord must be connected into a
properly grounded receptacle. The grounding prong must
not be removed from the cord plug.
GENERAL INFORMATION
FOR YOUR SATISFACTION, THIS FIREPLACE HAS BEEN
TEST-FIRED TO ASSURE ITS OPERATION AND QUALITY! Maximum input is 24,000 BTU/hr for natural gas and
22,000 BTU/hr for propane. When the fireplace is installed
at elevations above 4,500ft, and in the absense of specific
recommendations from the local authority having jurisdiction, the certified high altitude input rating shall be reduced
at the rate of 4% for each additional 1,000ft. Maximum output for natural gas is 15,900 BTU/hr and 16,000 BTU/hr for
propane.
Minimum inlet gas supply pressure is 4.5 inches water
column for natural gas and 11 inches water column for
propane. This fireplace is certified for bedroom and
bedsitting room installation. Maximum inlet gas pressure
is 7 inches water column for natural gas and 13 inches
water column for propane. Manifold pressure under flow
conditions is 3.5 inches water column for natural gas and
10 inches water column for propane.
No external electricity (110 volts or 24 volts) is required
for the gas system operation.
Expansion / contraction noises during heating up and cooling down cycles are normal and to be expected. Change in
flame appearance from "HI" to "LO" is more evident in natural gas than in propane.
CARE OF GLASS AND PLATED
Do not use abrasive cleaners to clean plated parts. Buff
lightly with a clean dry cloth. The glass is 3/16" ceramic
glass available from your Continental / Wolf Steel Ltd. dealer.
Do not substitute materials. Clean the glass after the first
10 hours of operation with a recommended gas fireplace
glass cleaner. Thereafter clean as required.
Do not clean glass when hot! If the glass is not kept clean
permanent discolouration and / or blemishes may result.

FIGURE 1
INSTALLATION
Clean out ashes from the inside of the wood-burning fireplace. Make sure that the chimney and wood-burning fireplace are in a clean and sound condition and constructed
of non-combustible materials. If necessary have any repair
work done by a qualified person before installing the insert. Remove the existing fireplace damper or lock into an
open position.
Using screws, attach the fireplace warning tag (W385-0199)
to the inside of the firebox of the fireplace into which the
insert is being installed.
FIGURE 2
WARNING: THIS FIREPLACE HAS BEEN CONVERTED FOR USE WITH A GAS
FIREPLACE INSERT ONLY AND CANNOT BE USED FOR BURNING WOOD OR SOLID

W385-0199
The sheet-metal parts of the fireplace, in which the gas
fireplace insert is to be installed, must not be cut.
If the wood-burning factory-built fireplace has no gas
access hole(s) provided, an access hole of 1½ inch or
less may be drilled through the lower sides or bottom
of the fireplace in a proper workman like manner. This
access hole must be plugged with non-combustible insulation after the gas supply line has been installed.
Ensure that existing chimney cleanouts fit properly.
The refractory, glass doors, screen rails, screen mesh
and log grates may be removed from the fireplace before installing the gas fireplace insert.
Smoke shelves, shields and baffles may be removed if
attached by mechanical fasteners.
The ventilation openings in the fireplace may be obstructed by the backer plates, aluminium trim etc. but
these parts are not to be applied so as to have an airtight seal.
Line the chimney with a 3" or 4" diameter approved liner.
With a 4" liner, an increaser must be connected between
the dilution draft hood and the liner. Chimney installation
must conform to both national and local code requirements.
The liner must be continuous from the fireplace to the
chimney cap.
Remove the securing screw from the front of the dilution
plate. Push the dilution draft hood out of the securing clips
and attach the liner using 3 screws equally spaced. Pack
insulation around the liner at the damper area to prevent
air flow from entering the chimney. Move the insert into the
centre of the woodburning fireplace making sure that the
dilution draft hood inserts back into its securing clips. Level
using the four leveling screws located front and back on
either side of the fireplace base. Leveling the insert will
eliminate rocking or excessive noise when the fan is in
operation. Replace the securing screw to the front of the
dilution plate.
FIGURE 3
Install rigid black pipe, a flex connector, if local codes permit, or 1/2" type L, copper tubing with a 3/8" to 1/2" adapter
and a shut off valve to the fireplace. Seal and tighten securely. The adapter will be required between the gas valve
and the copper tubing or flex connector. Do not kink flexible connector! Check for gas leaks by brushing on a
soap and water solution. Do not use open flame!

OPERATION / MAINTENANCE
SPILL SWITCH
VENTING ACTION CHECK
This is a thermally activated switch, attached to the back of
the unit and extending up into the dilution draft hood, which
senses the change in temperature and shuts down the
gas valve in the event of a severe downdraft of air or a
blocked or disconnected vent.
It acts as a safety shut-off to prevent a build up of carbon
monoxide or an explosion of unburnt gases during start
up. If the flue is blocked or has no "draw", the spill switch
will automatically shut off the supply of gas within about 510 minutes.
TAMPERING WITH THE SWITCH CAN RESULT IN CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) POISONING AND POSSIBLE
DEATH.
A CHECK FOR CORRECT VENTING ACTION MUST BE
MADE BEFORE THE INSTALLED INSERT IS LEFT WITH
THE CUSTOMER.
Test after installing the unit into a vented non-combustible
fireplace in the following manner:
1. Close all doors and windows in the room; start exhaust
fans in the home; turn fireplace blower off.
2. Set controls to "high" and light the unit.
3. Wait 5 minutes. Light a match and hold it to the spill tube
opening.
4. Venting action is satisfactory if smoke is drawn into the
spill tube. Venting action is unsatisfactory if the flame and
smoke are not drawn into the tube.
5. If venting action is unsatisfactory, turn the unit off, wait 10
minutes and try again. If the smoke or flame is still not
drawn into the spill tube, turn the unit off and check for vent
blockage or restriction. If necessary, consult with a qualified air quality specialist.
FIGURE10
When lit for the first time, the fireplace will emit a slight
odour for a few hours. This is a normal temporary condition caused by the curing of the logs and the "burn-in" of
internal paints and lubricants used in the manufacturing
process and will not occur again. Simply open a window
to sufficiently ventilate the room.
W415-0120 / E / 01.11.05
After extended periods of non-operation such as following a vacation or a warm weather season, the fireplace
may emit a slight odour for a few hours. This is caused
by dust particles in the heat exchanger burning off. Open
a window to sufficiently ventilate the room.

BLOWER SYSTEM
The Continental gas fireplace insert comes standard with
a blower, a heat sensor, variable on/off speed control and
a power cord. Because the blower is thermally activated,
when turned on, it will automatically start approximately 15
minutes after lighting the fireplace and will run for approximately 30 minutes after the fireplace has been turned off.
Use of the fan increases the output of heat. Air, drawn in
through the lower louvre access door, is driven up the back
of the firebox, and exhausted as hot air between the upper
louvres.
BLOWER REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS
• Turn off the gas and electric power to the unit.
• Remove the upper glass bracket. Loosen the lower glass
bracket and remove the glass.
• Remove the logs.
• Remove the burner assembly.
• Remove the eight screws holding the access door in
place on the control assembly (located at the back of the
burner support).
• Remove the four screws holding the blower duct and
slide it forward from beneath the burner support.
• Disconnect the electrical connectors at the blower.
• Remove the blower.
