INSERT VENT CONNECTION
Move the insert close to its final position inside the woodburning fireplace. This unit is equipped with 6 levelling
screws located as follows: two are on either side of the
circulation blower on the rear panel; four are located front
and back on either side beneath the log support. Level
using four of the levelling screws. See Figure 1a. Levelling
the unit will eliminate rocking or excessive noise when the
fan is in operation. Once the unit is level, move it partially
into place within the fireplace to allow for all connections to
be made. It is not practical to level the insert once the it has
been installed. Determine the required depth prior to installing the unit and adjust the four levelling screws accordingly.
2. Gently stretch the liners to the required lengths and insert into the chimney. Place the terminal onto the top of the
chimney cap and fit the flashing plate to suit. Make weather
tight by sealing with caulking (not supplied) and fasten to
the chimney with screws and plugs (not supplied)
3. INSIDE: Attach and secure the flex liners to the vent
connection assembly using the same procedure as before, ensuring that the marked exhaust liner is attached
to the exhaust collar.
FIGURE 3
CHIMNEY CONNECTION
Chimney installation must conform to both national and
local code requirements. The chimney must be lined with
one 2" or 3" diameter liner for intake and one 3" diameter
liner for exhaust. The minimum and maximum vent lengths
are 10 and 35 feet respectively. Recommended Continental
kits come in 3 lengths: While the liners must be continuous
from the fireplace to the terminal, to achieve the needed
length, they may be coupled, using an aluminium coupler,
provided installation is sealed & secured.

We recommend that exhaust vents that pass through
unheated spaces, such as a garage or attic, be
wrapped in a protective sleeve to minimize condensation and reverse flow symptoms. See Trouble Shooting
for details.
This unit is approved for use with a 2" liner for air intake
and a 3" liner for exhaust. For best performance,
however, it is recommended to use two 3" liners.
If a 2" liner is used for the intake, it is necessary to
adjust the primary air shutter. See "Air Shutter Settings"
on page 11.
FIGURE 2
1. OUTSIDE: Slip one
end of a liner a minimum
of 2" over one of the
collars of the terminal. Secure using 3 screws. Then
seal the joint and screw
heads with high temperature sealant. Repeat with
the other liner.
NOTE: We recommend that the other end of the exhaust
liner be marked to eliminate the exhaust liner being connected to the intake collar at the unit.

FIGURE 7
FINISHING
In order to close off the fireplace opening or if the opening
is larger than the 3- or 4-sided aluminium extrusion trim
kits, it is recommended to reduce the opening using a noncombustible material such as ceramic tile, marble, etc or
the GIZBP6-3 or GIZBP6-4 backer plate kits. The outside
edge of the backer plate is finished off with gold trim included in each kit. A deluxe flashing kit complete with marquis trim may also be used to complete the installation.
These flashing and trim combinations are available in 6
and 9 inch widths as well as many finishes to accent any
room decor. Mounting brackets, GIZBRKT, are required to
install the deluxe flashing. Detailed installation instructions
are included with each kit.
If this unit is being installed into an existing wood burning,
zero clearance fireplace, then be aware of this precaution:
Any circulation air opening may be covered (with noncombustible material) but not sealed!

To adjust the trim: If the mitre is out of alignment, open
each side and loosen the two screws at either side trim
hinge. Slide the trim up or down to adjust and re-tighten
screws. There is also a very slight in/out adjustment that
can be made.
Note: Since the side panels open and close, to access
the controls, a gap is necessary at the mitre joint.
The top trim piece has an adjustable securing bracket
which enables the trim to be secured to the firebox shell.

LOG PLACEMENT
DOOR INSTALLATION
Positioning the logs improperly will cause flame impingement and carboning.
PHAZERTM logs and glowing embers, exclusive to Continental
Fireplaces, glow when exposed to direct flame and provide
a unique and realistic glowing effect that is different in every
installation. Take the time to carefully position the glowing
embers for a maximum glowing effect. Use only certified
PHAZERTM logs available from your Continental / Wolf Steel
Ltd. dealer.
1. Place the rear log (#1) onto the two log supports and
against the air intake pipe.
FIGURE 12
Place the door into the two lower door brackets, and secure at the top of the unit with two #10-24 machine screws.

4. Tear the glowing embers into pieces and place along
the front row of ports covering all of the burner area in front
of the logs. Care should be taken to shred the embers into
thin, small irregular pieces as only the exposed edges of
the fibre hairs will glow. The ember material will only glow
when exposed to direct flame; however, care should be
taken to not block the burner ports. Blocked burner ports
can cause an incorrect flame pattern, carbon deposits and
delayed ignition.
Log colours may vary. During the initial use of the fireplace,
the colours will become more uniform as colour pigments
burn in during the heat activated curing process.

OPERATION / MAINTENANCE
Do not operate the main burner of the insert with the door removed.
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 "burn-in" of paints and lubricants
used in the manufacturing process and will not occur
again. Simply open a window to sufficiently ventilate
the room. 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.
PURGE THE GAS LINE WITH THE GLASS DOOR OPEN.
FOR YOUR SAFETY READ BEFORE LIGHTING:
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
A. This fireplace is equipped with a pilot which must be lit
by hand. While following these instructions exactly.
B. Before operating smell all around the fireplace area for
gas and next to the floor because some gas is heavier
than air and will settle on the floor.
C. Use only your hand to turn the gas control knob. Never
use tools. If the knob will not turn by hand, do not try to
repair it. Call a qualified service technician. Force or attempted repair may result in a fire or explosion.
D. Do not use this fireplace if any part has been under water.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect
the fireplace and replace any part of the control system
and any gas control which has been under water.
• Turn off all gas to the fireplace.

REPLACEMENT BLOWER INSTALLATION
The Napoleon 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 slot, is driven up the back of the firebox,
and exhausted as hot air through the upper slot.

BLOWER ACCESS DOOR
Slide the blower into the clip (C). Secure to the threaded
stud using the existing lock washer and wing nut. Ensure
that the blower does not touch the fireplace base or the
firebox.
6. Reconnect the two wires. Holding the replacement gasket in place, reattach the blower access door and panel.
Replace the logs. Re-install the fire viewing door.
7. Turn the gas supply and electricity back on.
Drywall dust will penetrate into the blower bearings causing irreparable damage and must be prevented from
coming into contact with the blower or its compartment.
Any damage resulting from this condition is not covered by the warranty policy.

ADJUSTMENTS
PILOT BURNER ADJUSTMENT
VENTURI ADJUSTMENT
Remove the pilot screw cap. Adjust the pilot screw to provide properly sized flame. Turn in a clockwise direction to
reduce the gas flow. Replace the pilot screw cap.
This unit is approved for use with a 2" liner for air intake
and a 3" liner for exhaust. For best performance, however,
it is recommended to use two 3" liners.
Air shutter settings will differ depending on the liner system used. Use the charts below to determine the correct
air shutter setting:

AIR SHUTTER SETTING
Closing the air shutter will cause a more yellow flame, but
can lead to carboning. Opening the air shutter will cause a
more blue flame, but can cause flame lifting from the burner
ports. The flame may not appear yellow immediately; allow
15 to 30 minutes for the final flame colour to be established.
Air shutter adjustment
must only be done by a
qualified gas installer!
FIGURE 28
VENT RESTRICTION
Some vent configurations may display a very active flame. If
this appearance is not desirable, the vent exit may be restricted using the restrictor plate shown in FIGURE 6b. Bend
the flap up as shown to reduce the velocity of the exhaust
gases, slowing down the flame pattern and creating a more
traditional appearance.
FIGURE 30
HELPFUL HINT:
A mirror will let you see the opening of
the air shutter without removing the
burner. Scribe a line along the venturi
tube and air shutter cap. Open or close
according to the original opening by
using the scribed line as your datum.
