INTRODUCTION
T
he fireplace is an American tradition. It remains a central feature of many homes and provides
comfort and enjoyment for years to come, if designed and installed properly. Country Flame
continues an American Tradition with decades of experience in manufacturing high quality
practical fireplaces. To get the most out of a Smart Fireplace Furnace, ensure competently
trained installation personnel follow all restrictions and clearance requirements listed in this manual in
accordance with all state, local or national zoning and building codes. This manual provides basic
information for proper installation. Consideration must be given to site specific conditions and designs.
All fireplaces contain essentially the same elements: a base, a combustion chamber, a smoke chamber,
and a chimney system. Requirements for installation are based on the 2003 International Residential
Code. Contact your state and local building codes departments along with the local fire department to
ensure proper installation requirements have been met. Failure to properly install a fireplace furnace
system can cause a house fire. Country Flame Technologies disavows any liability for any damages that
may occur as a result of improper installation or misuse of the Smart Fireplace Furnace manufactured by
Country Flame Technologies
O
peration of the Smart Fireplace Furnace should be in accordance with this manual and should
be operated in accordance with any local zoning codes or local operating restrictions. Home
heating is usually achieved by burning natural gas, fuel oil, or propane. The combustion
process, including the fuel supply, can be mechanically controlled. This is not the case with
solid fuel. Solid fuel burning is very unpredictable as there are many variables affecting the combustion
process. Adding fuel is a manual operation. The amount of wood added depends on the individual
operating the system. Also, the requirement for combustion air changes during the burning of a load of
wood. Thus the temperature of the wood fire system varies considerably. Burning solid fuel is relatively
dirty, compared to liquid fuels, with the buildup of ash and residue. Importantly, there are very limited
automatic safety devices. If the firebox temperature reaches an unsafe temperature do to over firing,
there is no means to just “turn off” the flame; as a result, controlling a wood fire takes more knowledge
and care than most liquid fuel burning processes. A homeowner must understand they are basically
burning a fire in the middle of their home. It is both prudent and wise for the homeowner to ensure the
fire can be restricted (limit combustion air) and under control (do not allow over firing) in order to enjoy
a safe warm fire to provide maximum heat energy in the home without endangering the surroundings or
the occupants.
M
aintenance requirements contained in this manual must be followed to ensure proper
operation of the Smart Fireplace Furnace. Failure to follow maintenance requirements will
reduce efficiency of operation or can create unsafe operating conditions. The majority of
fires and accidents that occur with wood burning fireplaces are a result of improper
maintenance. A visual inspection of the fireplace box, the chimney connector and the chimney will
reduce the possibility of uncontrolled fires or assist in preventing accidents from occurring. Immediately
contact your local fire department representative, your local Country Flame Dealer, or a fireplace
specialist should a problem be detected with your fireplace furnace. It is the responsibility of the operator
of the fireplace furnace product to become familiar, understand, and ensure adherence to all maintenance
requirements associated with proper operation of this product. Failure to adhere to maintenance
requirements voids Country Flame’s product warranty. Monthly inspections should ensure that dampers
and all moving parts are properly working. The chimney, firebox, and chimney connectors should be
professionally inspected and cleaned at least once a year. As with any product, the efficiency of your
wood burning fireplace furnace depends on how well the Country Flame product is maintained. Your
Country Flame Dealer will be happy to assist you in ensuring your fireplace furnace product is
maintained in the best possible state. Keep his number handy.

9 STEPS TO INSTALL A SMART FIREPLACE
STEP 1 - FOOTINGS AND FOUNDATIONS
A Country Flame manufactured fireplace furnace is designed for installation in a masonry
fireplace hull in accordance with the Uniform Building Code. Only qualified installation
personnel should install the fireplace furnace unit. Qualified installation personnel shall be
knowledgeable in fireplace construction, air-handling ductwork, heating systems and both
local and national building code requirements. A Country Flame manufactured fireplace furnace
can be connected directly into a home central heat and air conditioning system. This option can
add to the efficiency of a home heating system.
A fireplace furnace base consists of all necessary footings and foundation to support the fireplace
furnace and concrete masonry foundation fireplace walls. FIGURE 2 shows both a typical above
floor grade and a typical floor grade fireplace furnace installation.
The thickness of the concrete footing and concrete foundation will depend on a) local soil
pressures, b) the height of your specific chimney, and c) the weight of your chimney material.
Select the site for your fireplace and mark the foundation area. Check local building codes to
ensure conformance of both the footing and foundation. Table 3 lists the standard dimensions for
Smart Fireplace Furnace footing installations:
TABLE 3
Model 33
Model 37
Model 42
92” wide x 40” deep x 10” thick
96” wide x 40” deep x 10” thick
102” wide x 40” deep x 10” thick
NOTES:
1. Table 3 assumes the use of four-inch (4”) concrete masonry unit (CMU) blocks to
build the fireplace furnace walls. If a wider CMU block material is used for fireplace
wall construction then you must increase the footing to accommodate the change.
2. Table 3 footing depths are adequate for chimney heights up to seventeen feet in
standard soil. If the chimney height exceeds seventeen feet or soil pressures are nonstandard, increases footing depths at least six inches. Use of reinforced concrete, rebar
or steel mesh for stress reduction is recommended. Refer to local building codes.
3. For sandy, loose, or non-standard soil pressures, or for areas that have landfill, Table 3
footing thickness should be increased accordingly. Ensure all local building codes are
met. The fireplace furnace foundation must be solid.
4. The CMU foundation wall should end level with the top of the floor joists. Refer to
FIGURE 2a. If a floor level installation is planned, then refer to FIGURE 2b, in which
case the CMU foundation wall will end below the bottom of the floor joists.
5. Use of a non-combustible H-beam or I-beam may be substituted in the event a
combustible header cannot be maintained a minimum distance of 6’8” above a raised
hearth.
6. Additional floor protection is not required for installation of the Smart Fireplace
Furnace as long as unit is installed per hearth clearances listed in Table 1.
Version 7.1
4
FIGURE 2: SINGLE OPENING FIREPLACE SYSTEMS
FIGURE 2a shows a fireplace installation where the floor joists are located below the hearth (raised
hearth system.) FIGURE 2b shows a fireplace installation where the floor joists are located at the
same level as the hearth. Note the changes in hearth depth required for these two different types of
installations. FAILURE to observe proper clearances will increase the potential for a fire in the
home due to improper installation.
Version 7.1
5
STEP 2 – CONCRETE PAD & HEARTH EXTENSIONS
Determine whether the fireplace is to be installed on an outside wall or an inside wall. The
clearances for an inside wall installation differ from an outside wall installation. The type
of wall installation will impact the size of the concrete pad and hearth extension to be
poured. Ensure conformance to all local building codes. Void areas are often provided in
the base to form an air passage for external combustion air (recommended), or an opening for an
ash pit or for both. Any nonessential void areas below the hearth should be filled to avoid
unwanted air leakage into the furnace. Immediately above the foundation or foundation walls,
pouring a concrete pad and creating the required hearth extension will create support for the
fireplace furnace and allow an interface to the floor joists. Corbelling may be used to support the
hearth extension, but a poured concrete slab, that also supports the fireplace furnace, usually is used
to create a hearth extension. Forming the concrete pad requires “block outs” for external
combustion air dampers (recommended.) Forming the concrete pad requires an interface with the
ash dump provided in the Smart Fireplace Furnace. The concrete pad ash dump block out should
be larger than the opening provided for the ash dump in the bottom of the fireplace furnace floor.
If a Smart Fireplace Furnace is to be ducted down to a lower level, then include block outs in the
concrete pad for the hot air ducting. Refer to FIGURE 3 for a typical outside wall fireplace furnace
installation and refer to FIGURE 4 for a typical inside wall fireplace furnace installation. Note that
both drawings include block outs for down duct capability.
FIGURE 3: OUTSIDE WALL PAD INSTALLATION
Use of non-combustible forms will be required for the concrete pad since removal of these forms
will not be possible once the concrete pour is complete. Corrugated galvanized sheet metal can be
used for the concrete pad form to eliminate any future fire hazard. NOTE: ALL combustible
forms used in the hearth extension and concrete pad must not be left in place once the concrete
pour is complete. The concrete pad must be a minimum of eight inches thick and be capable of
resisting thermal stresses resulting from high temperatures. Check local building codes and
specific requirements in order to define the proper thickness requirement of the concrete pad and
hearth extension for your specific fireplace furnace application.
Hearth extensions must be constructed of noncombustible materials.
A U.L. listed hearth
extension may be used or the hearth extension can be a continuation of the poured concrete pad.
Version 7.1

Refer to FIGURE 2 for the depth requirements of a hearth extension. Hearth extension
requirements vary according to where the floor joists meet the hearth and what local code requires.
FIGURE 4:
INSIDE WALL PAD INSTALLATION
NOTES:
1.
If installing a fireplace furnace on an inside wall, refer to FIGURE 4. An inside wall
concrete pad must be six inches deeper than FIGURE 3 shows to allow for additional air
space required for inside wall installation.
2.
Overall concrete pad and hearth extension sizes can be determined by referring to
FIGURE 3. Remember that a pad should contain rebar or steel mesh for stress reduction
and improved strength.
3.
All combustible ash pit forms should be removed before the concrete pad is poured, as
removal will be impossible once the concrete pad has been poured.
Version 7.1
7
STEP 3 – FIREPLACE POSITION ON THE CONCRETE PAD
In order to accomplish Step 3, it is assumed that all combustible forms have been removed
from the fireplace foundation, the ash pit, the combustion air void (if designed in for
fireplace,) the concrete pad, and the hearth extension. Once all combustible forms have
been removed the fireplace furnace is ready for installation on the concrete pad.
Position the fireplace unit square to the floor and centered over the ash pit opening on top of the
concrete pad. The concrete ash pit opening should be larger than the steel ash pit hole. If this is
not the case, it will be difficult to push ash into the ash pit once the fireplace is in use. Ensure, in
the event that down draft hot air ducts are to be utilized, that the fireplace furnace hot air outlets
align properly with the block outs located in the concrete pad.
As the fireplace furnace is positioned on the concrete pad, verification of dimensions should be
made to ensure proper distances from an inside wall installation or for an outside wall installation.
Verifying that proper clearances have been maintained is important before proceeding to Step 4.
Remove the roll of insulation from its wrapping. Use the insulation to wrap the fireplace furnace
on its top, back, front, and both sides.
STEP 4 – FIREPLACE WALL & CHIMNEY CONSTRUCTION
FIREPLACE WALL CONSTRUCTION –
Fireplace wall construction is critical to the long term success of the fireplace for several
reasons. The non-combustible brick, concrete, and masonry walls protect the combustible
material that is ultimately used as the core home construction material from the intense
fireplace heat. These same non-combustible walls must support the weight of the chimney
system. Finally, the aesthetics of the masonry work will define the warmth and comfort of all
who view the fireplace furnace for years to come. Refer to FIGURE 5 and the following steps
as a guide to installing fireplace walls. Again, local codes and a chimney construction expert
should be involved in the design and construction of the fireplace.
1. The Smart Fireplace Furnace must be enclosed on all sides and back with a minimum of 8”
thick masonry material. It is permissible to use 4” concrete block and standard or common
brick to achieve this eight-inch thickness.
2. 4” CMU (concrete masonry block) should be used for the side and rear walls.
3. The left and right side CMU block walls must frame the Smart fireplace furnace blower
boxes. Frame the blower boxes with CMU block as shown in FIGURE 5.
4. CMU side support walls must extend a minimum of 1” above the fireplace unit. These
extended CMU walls will be used for supporting the angle iron that will be used to support
the masonry chimney parts. FIGURE 7 shows the angle iron installation that supports the
chimney brick and the clay flue liner tile.
5. An electrical box is preinstalled in the right side of the fireplace. This box is pre-wired for
a snap disk and electrical ground. Before completing the right CMU wall, the electrician
should properly wire the air discharge snap disk. Leave a ½” diameter hole in the right
side CMU block wall. The electrician will need to bring Romex wiring to the electrical
box. The CMU block hole should align with the fireplace furnace electric box cover.
6. The fireplace face brick wall must extend from the floor to the ceiling line.
7. FIGURE 5 shows the insulation installed on the Smart Fireplace exterior sides, front and
back. Insulation also must cover the top of the Smart Fireplace once the chimney is
installed. Compressing insulation reduces its effectiveness. Ensure proper clearance.
Version 7.1
8
8.
A minimum of 24” sidewall clearance must be maintained between combustibles and the
inside firewall of the firebox.
9. Maintain a 4” clearance from the masonry chimney to combustibles below the roofline.
10. The fireplace cavity must remain open, unobstructed, and free from any combustibles from
the top of the fireplace through the attic space.
11. NOTE: Country Flame’s optional log grate is shown in FIGURE 5.
FIGURE 5: MASONRY WALL INSTALLATION
STEP 5 – CHIMNEY FLUE INSTALLATION
FACTORY-BUILT INSULATED CHIMNEY INSTALLATION – The Smart Fireplace
Furnace models 33 and 37 can be installed with a Class A ten inch (10”) diameter U.L. 103
HT listed factory built chimney. The Smart Fireplace Furnace model 42 can be installed
with a Class A twelve inch (12”) diameter U.L. HT listed factor built chimney. In order to
use factory-built insulated chimney with a Smart Fireplace Furnace, refer to FIGURE 5 and follow
the FIREPLACE WALL CONSTRUCTION steps 1 through 8 listed above and then follow
steps 12 through 16:
Version 7.1
9
12. Install the HT Adapter as shown in FIGURE 6. This optional square to round adaptor
can be obtained from your Country Flame Dealer or direct from Country Flame. The
4” wide pieces of angle iron are not required across the interior masonry walls when
using factory-built insulated chimney materials.
13. The innermost masonry walls must extend the equivalent of one block above the top of
the fireplace.
14. Factory-built insulated chimney pipe must maintain a minimum of 6” to any
combustibles below the roofline.
15. Follow the specific chimney manufacturer’s clearances to combustibles for factorybuilt chimneys. If a factory-built chimney passes through an occupied space, such as a
closet or room, it must be enclosed in a properly built chase. This chase protects the
chimney from physical damage that would impair or limit the factory-built chimney’s
effectiveness.
16. FOLLOW THE SPECIFIC CHIMNEY MANUFACTURER’S GUIDELINES WHEN
INSTALLING FACTORY-BUILT INSULATED CHIMNEY PRODUCT ON TOP
OF ANY COUNTRY FLAME SMART FIREPLACE FURNACE.
FIGURE 6: TYPICAL HT ADAPTER (optional) INSTALLATION
OPTIONAL FLU ADAPTER – Factory-built insulated chimney requires an optional
rectangular to round flu adapter collar that is defined in the parts section of this manual.
These adaptors can be ordered through Country Flame or its Authorized Dealers. In order to
use a manufacturer’s chimney starter collar, it must be a minimum 24 gauge black or blued
steel. FIGURE 6 shows a typical installation of the Country Flame HT Adapter along with a
generic chimney starter collar. The Model 33 or Model 37 fireplace furnace units use the same
specific model of the optional HT Adapter while the Model 42 fireplace furnace uses its own
specific optional HT Adapter. Do not use other manufacturers rectangular to round flu adapters
with the Country Flame Smart Fireplace Furnace. Insulation must be installed on the top and front
of fireplace furnace.
Version 7.1
10
MASONRY CHIMNEY CONSTRUCTION – Refer to FIGURE 7 and TABLE 4 for the
procedures and materials required to construct a masonry chimney. Masonry chimney
construction also requires a qualified and knowledgeable chimney mason that understands
masonry construction, local codes, and local site conditions. A masonry chimney must be
positioned and sealed correctly to ensure an effective flue draft occurs once fireplace operation
begins. All new residential fireplace masonry chimney construction, including the clay flue liner,
must comply with Standard Specification for Clay Flue Linings, ASTMC315. Clay flue liners are
required to be installed with an air space between the chimney wall and the clay liner to allow free
movement of air. Each clay flue tile must be properly sealed at the initial base joint and at each
joint where additional clay flue tile meet in order to prevent the escape of heat, flame, and flue
gasses into the surrounding exterior brick or home walls.
In general masonry chimneys can include any number of passageways. Each of these passageways
requires their own clay liner system. Two passageways that are enclosed in a single chimney must
be separated by an air space between the flue liners. If more than two passageways are to be
installed in a single chimney, each clay flue liner passageway must be separated by at least 4 inches
of masonry.
The first step to ensuring a Smart Fireplace Furnace will draw adequately, is to size and
construct a chimney flue correctly. The International Residential Code indicates that the
chimney height as well as the fireplace opening area determines the flue size. Country
Flame has installed the proper flue lip during factory construction of the Smart Fireplace
Furnace. TABLE 1 provided general product specifications that included information to be used in
constructing a proper chimney flue. In addition, unless local code or qualified installers encounter
site specific conditions that require different parameters, it is recommended to follow Country
Flame specifications. TABLE 4 provides additional information for the selection of angle iron to
be used to set a masonry chimney and clay flue tile. DO NOT set the clay tile or chimney material
on the top of the Smart Fireplace as the angle iron must support the weight of the clay flue tile and
the chimney brick. Please follow TABLE 4 recommendations to select proper material sizes to
avoid future problems.

FIGURE 7A: MASONRY CHIMNEY INSTALLATION
The two longest pieces of angle iron are to be set on top of the block support walls as shown in
FIGURE 7A. The two shortest angle irons pieces are to span between the two long angle iron
pieces as shown in FIGURE 7A. Before installing these angle iron pieces, mortar should be spread
around the flue opening of the fireplace, extending four inches to the sides of the flue lip and a halfinch higher than the masonry-supporting wall. Once the mortar has been applied to the proper
thickness, lay the two long angle irons across the supporting sidewalls so that they are embedded in
the mortar. The angle iron edges should butt up against the flue opening. The short angle irons
should now be installed so they bridge across the two long angle irons and be placed tight against
the flue lip. These short angle iron pieces should rest on the top inside face of the long pieces of
angle iron. If properly applied, mortar should embed the angle iron and form a good seal around
the angle iron.
FIGURE 7B: MASONRY CHIMNEY INSTALLATION
Lay one half inch of mortar on top of the angle irons around the flue and set the first section of the
clay flue tile on top of the angle irons. Now fill the space between the outside of the flue tile and
the vertical leg of the angle irons with mortar. Be certain that the mortar is level with the top edge
of all the angle iron. Now begin setting the four-inch brick or block on top of the mortar. Ensure
Version 7.1
12
that this block is centered on the edge of the angle iron and maintains a distance of ½ inch from the
clay flue tile face. Once the clay flue tile and first course of brick are checked and verified for
proper installation, proper level, and proper clearances, each successive clay flue tile, and courses
of chimney brick can be added until the chimney cap height is reached. Check local building code
for specifics on masonry chimney installations. For those in earthquake prone areas, ensure that
local seismic requirements are met when building a masonry chimney. FIGURE 7B is provided to
show the proper positioning of chimney brick from the clay flue tile and position on the top edge of
the angle iron.
Both masonry and factory-build chimneys must extend at least three feet above a point where the
chimney passes through any roof. A chimney must also be at least two feet above any part of the
building or roofline within ten feet of a horizontal radius around the chimney structure. A taller
chimney may be required under certain site specific conditions for adequate draft. Good draft is
normally achieved with chimney heights at least fifteen feet high measured from the top of the
fireplace opening to the top of the chimney. A chimney must be capped to resist water penetration.
A mortar wash that is feathered to the edge of the chimney wall is not an adequate cap. The
chimney cap should be cast-in-place or pre-cast concrete. Check with a builder, masonry chimney
installer and always consult local codes to ensure proper chimney installation.
STEP 6 – BLOWER INSTALLATIONS
Blowers add to the efficiency of the Smart Fireplace Furnace by moving room air across the
heat exchanger fins built into the Smart Fireplace Furnace. This air is heated and then
returned to the room or home duct system to provide more uniform heating throughout the
house. Country Flame provides two grille frames that are to be framed in by the mason
when finishing the front face of the Smart Fireplace Furnace. FIGURE 8A shows how a blower is
mounted to the Smart Fireplace. Figure 8B shows the proper installation of the air intake grills
with variable speed controls attached. Follow the steps listed below to install each blower. Refer
to FIGURE 12 for the electrical schematic of the blower system.
FIGURE 8A: BLOWER INSTALLATION
Version 7.1
13
1. Attach one blower mount to the Smart Fireplace on the right side as shown in FIGURE
8A. Repeat the process for installing the blower mount and fan on the left side.
NOTE: Ensure an electrician wires and properly grounds the Smart Fireplace blowers.
Once the brick mason has completed the face, no access to the blower wiring is
possible. Bolt blower mounts to the concrete footing in order to minimize movement
or vibration of the blower assembly as shown in FIGURE 8A.
2. Wrap the sides and blower mounts with the fiberglass insulation provided. Again,
ensure that the fan mounts are securely mounted and insulated in order to eliminate any
unwanted vibration noise.
3. Once Step 1 and 2 are complete, the air intake grilles and grille frames can be installed
when the mason bricks the front of the fireplace. Refer to FIGURE 8B to see the
recommended procedure for proper installation of the grille frames and the air intake
grille with variable speed control rheostat mounting. Ensure that the electrician
properly wires the variable speed control provided on the air grilles to the blowers.
4. FIGURE 9A demonstrates the installation of the top front warm air discharge boot to
the front of the Smart Fireplace. FIGURE 9B demonstrates the procedure for
installation of the adjustable warm air discharge boot (optional.) This optional item
allows the mason to adjust for any variation in non-standard brick or stone that is being
used on to face the fireplace.
FIGURE 8B: AIR INTAKE GRILLE INSTALLATION
5. The temperature snap disc was mounted and pre-wired at the factory. Refer to
FIGURE 14 and ensure a qualified electrician properly wires and grounds the Smart
Fireplace to the electrical box, shown in FIGURE 13. NOTE: It is important to
remember that no access to wiring and grounding of the fireplace is possible once the
brick mason has completed all brick work. Ensure that wiring is proper and
functioning before allowing brick work to be completed.
6. Unless local building code specifies otherwise, use a minimum Romex electrical wire,
14-2 with ground when connecting the blower system to an electrical power source.
Heavier wire can be used but consult with local code and a qualified electrician.

FIGURE 9A shows the proper assembly of the standard heat discharge boot. FIGURE 9B shows
the optional adjustable heat discharge boot that is required in the event anything but 4” wide brick
is used to complete the masonry work. The optional slide in FIGURE 9, Item B, allows for a lintel
adjustment from 4 inches to 7 inches. By ordering the adjustable heat discharge boot the brick
mason can adjust for variations in custom masonry finishes that might be used on a particular
fireplace. Refer to STEP 7 - COMPLETION OF MASONRY FRONT for step-by-step
procedures for installing the parts shown in FIGURE 9.

Remember that the sides, back, front, and top of the fireplace must be faced with at least two inches
of supplied insulation. This means that all masonry material will remain at least two inches from
the fireplace body in order for the insulation to properly expand and provide the necessary
insulating properties. Compressing the insulation will reduce its insulation value. With the items
shown in FIGURE 9 properly installed and all electrical work completed and tested by a certified
electrician, the brick mason can complete the masonry face of the Smart Fireplace Furnace.
Version 7.1
15
STEP 7 – COMPLETION OF MASONRY BRICK FRONT
The fireplace furnace front can be finished in many different ways to enhance the appearance of
your heating system. Ensure that all clearances have been met and that all insulation provided by
Country Flame has been installed correctly. Refer to local codes for any limitations of fireplace
fronts before completing the system. The following steps are provided as minimum requirements
in completing the fireplace furnace front installation.

9.
The fireplace face wall should be full masonry from floor to ceiling. An air space of at
least two inches must separate BOTH THE MASONRY AND THE MORTAR from the
front of the fireplace. Fill the two-inch void with the insulation provided by Country
Flame. No mortar should be closer than two inches from the fireplace front to allow for
heat expansion. Masonry may rest on the fireplace lintel and grille holder.
The fireplace mantle should be made of a non-combustible material. If combustible mantle
material is used, it must be placed at least twelve inches above the air outlet grille.
FIGURE 10 defines all the working components of the fireplace damper system. When
building the front masonry brick, be sure to locate and mortar in the adjustable damper rod
sleeve, FIGURE 10, item (C).
The Smart Fireplace Furnace must be enclosed in a minimum of eight-inch thick masonry
material on both sides and the rear. This thickness is usually a combination of four-inch
thick concrete block and standard or common brick. Refer to STEP 4 – FIREPLACE
WALL CONSTRUCTION for review of this requirement.
A minimum of twenty-four inch sidewall clearance must be maintained between
combustibles and the interior firewall of the firebox.
The fireplace heat grille and heat discharge boot come preinstalled from the factor and can
be used with any masonry brick up to 4” in thickness. If thicker masonry material is used,
refer to FIGURE 9B for a pictorial view of the assembly process of the optional adjustable
heat discharge boot. These optional parts are listed in the back of this manual. Order them
from your dealer.
A. Mount “inner unit” (Part B, optional) to front of fireplace Part C using four (4) screws,
Part D.
B. Slide “outer unit” (Part A) onto “inner unit” (Part B, optional). If optional Part B has
not been purchased, mount Part A directly to Part C. Do not leave a gap between the
outer and inner units.
C. Adjust in and out for proper fit to brick facing.
D. The air discharge snap disc comes pre-installed and wired from the factory. Ensure
that it is wired to the home circuit by a certified electrician AND properly tested before
final face masonry is completed. A complete electrical circuit diagram is shown in
FIGURE 14.
E. Attach the grilles to the “outer unit” with the four screws provided.
Before completely enclosing the fireplace furnace unit, be sure the warm air ducts are
connected and installed in accordance with local building codes and constructed of material
capable of handling at least 2500F.
Maintain at least a four-inch clearance from the masonry chimney to combustibles below
the roofline or maintain a six-inch clearance from the factory built chimney to
combustibles below the roofline.
Use masonry or other non-combustibles to support the mantle.
Version 7.1

STEP 8 – FLUE DAMPER CONTROL INSTALLATION
Country Flame’s rotary controlled flue damper should be assembled as shown in FIGURE
10 after the fireplace is completely installed. The flue damper is extremely important to
energy savings, reducing heat loss, and controlling a fire. The flue damper acts as a valve,
closing off the opening to the chimney when a fire is not burning. Closing the damper
reduces the amount of home heat or air conditioning that will be lost through the chimney.
Step 8 assumes that all masonry is complete and the adjustable rod sleeve, Item (C), FIGURE 10
has been or is ready to be embedded in the masonry veneer so that it cannot move. Refer to
FIGURE 11b for more details on embedding Damper Handle Tab in mortar. Review FIGURE 10
to ensure a basic knowledge of each damper part and damper part name. Then follow the steps
listed below in order to complete the installation of the rotary controlled damper rod.
WARNING: Improper installation or operation of the damper system will make any fire difficult
to control. Ensure the damper area is free from all construction or mortar debris.

STEP 9 – ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Country Flame’s Smart Fireplace Furnace comes standard with two blowers each rated to
move 525 cubic feet of room air per minute. The blower system includes all necessary
parts, except some additional wire, required for a local certified electrician to install the
blowers, speed controls, and the thermostat. The fireplace’s electrical system SHOULD
BE tested before final brickwork is completed. If electrical testing is not done, access to installed
wiring may be limited or worse, not repairable without costly removal of brickwork. Request that
the local electrician make sure all blowers, air discharge snap disc, and rheostats are properly
working before completing the brickwork.
FIGURE 12: THERMAL SNAP DISK LOCATION
FIGURE 12 shows the location of the thermal snap disk on the right side behind the front grille.
Service to this component should only be accomplished by a qualified technician. This snap disk
comes pre-wired from the factory. Once connected to the main power circuit, this snap disk will
automatically turn the blower system on and off as the Smart Fireplace Furnace reaches either the
appropriate hot or cold temperature.
FIGURE 13: ELECTRICAL JUNCTION BOX
FIGURE 13 shows the location of the electrical junction box cover. A certified electrician should
remove the cover of this junction box to connect the Smart Fireplace Furnace’s blower system to
the household electrical grid and the supplied thermostat with proper temperature rated romex
wire. WARNING: Failure to properly wire in the blower system can lead to shock hazard, a
malfunctioning blower system, or could create a fire hazard. Contact a certified electrician to
ensure proper installation of the Smart Fireplace Furnace blower system. NOTE: All wiring
should be completed before masonry work is complete.

FIGURE 14 shows the proper components and wiring procedure for connecting the blower
system. Follow all local electrical and safety codes as well as the National Electrical Code when
installing electrical wiring.
FIGURE 14: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
A certified electrician should provide the electrical circuit and connect the fireplace furnace to the
electrical supply. The blower systems and the Smart Fireplace Furnace must be electrically
grounded. Grounding can be accomplished with a grounded metal-clad raceway system or by
using a separate ground wire connected to the bare metal of the blower frame and fireplace box or
other suitable means. Disconnect all power sources from the fireplace before working on or near
the blower motor system or its components. Be careful when touching the exterior of an
operating blower motor. Modern motors are built to operate at high temperatures that may be hot
enough to cause pain or personal injury. Be careful around the moving parts of the blower motor
system. When installing the blower system ensure that the power cables and blower leads remain
Version 7.1
21
clear of sharp objects. Further, ensure that the power cables or motor leads are not kinked. Never
allow the power cables or motor leads to come in contact with oil, grease, hot surfaces, or
chemicals. Utilize the two high temperature wires (red and white) provided by Country Flame to
connect the air discharge snap disc to the electrical system as shown in FIGURE 14. Use the high
temperature wire (green/yellow) to ground the fireplace to the right blower box. The
green/yellow wire installed by Country Flame at the factory should be connected to one of the
screws used to hold the air discharge snap disc to the fireplace. Connect the other end of the
green/yellow wire to the right blower box or another earth ground coming from the circuit
breaker box. The installing electrician should ensure proper grounding is accomplished for both
blower boxes and the fireplace unit as per FIGURE 14. Screws and wire nuts are provided by
Country Flame to ensure all parts are available during installation.
High temperature blower motor systems are lubricated at the factory and should require no further
lubrication; however, at higher inlet temperatures, increased bearing life can be achieved by
annually re-lubricating the motors with 10 to 20 drops of Anderol Number 465 high temperature
synthetic lubricant. DO NOT USE petroleum-based oil, as bearing failure will result.

DUCTING OPTIONS
Properly ducting the Smart Fireplace Furnace will provide years of comfort because properly
ducted fireplaces will allow for a more uniform distribution of heat throughout the home. Many
ducting options are possible with the Smart Fireplace Furnace. Which option is selected depends
on your installer’s knowledge, local codes, and the desired results expected from the completed
system. During the installation process, it is important to determine and ensure the compatibility of the
Smart Fireplace Furnace with any gas or oil fired furnace that is to be installed in the residence. As a
minimum, a test must be conducted to ensure the furnace installation is compatible with the existing
Smart Fireplace Furnace’s operating range of air temperature rise and/or external static pressure of
those marked on the nameplate of the central furnace.
FIGURE 15: (OPTIONAL) SIDE VENTED FIREPLACE
CAUTION: The warm-air supply outlet of the Smart Fireplace Furnace should not be connected to the
cold-air return inlet of the central furnace system. These warm-air to cold-air connections must not be
made because the possibility exists of components in the central furnace system overheating and
causing the central furnace system to operate other than as it was intended to operate.
OPTIONAL DUCT RINGS are available from Country Flame Technologies and are unique to
fireplace models. FIGURE 15 shows an example of a side duct system. Contact Country Flame or
your dealer to order a duct kit for a specific fireplace model.
Version 7.1
23
Holes in brick masonry should be a half-inch larger diameter hole than the duct pipe to be utilized.
This will allow an area for expansion of the duct pipe as it heats up. Example: if ducting a Country
Flame Model 33, a 6-½ inch diameter hole should be cut in the masonry for the duct: whereas, for the
Model 37 and the Model 42, an 8-½ inch diameter hole should be cut in the masonry for the duct. All
clearances listed in Table 1, page 2 must be strictly adhered to.
FIGURE 15 shows a side (one side only for clarity) view of the optional side vent fireplace. To order
this optional side vented fireplace furnace, contact a Country Flame dealer or Country Flame direct.
FIGURE 16 provides a view of several different options that are possible for connecting fireplace
furnace ducting systems. Clearly, a plan must be developed for how the ducts will be connected before
installation is begun or completed. The following steps will assist in properly installing ductwork but
local codes and your home’s HVAC expert should be consulted.
1.
Use 26 gauge or heavier galvanized pipes for ducting. WARNING: DO NOT use plastic
or flex ducting. The ductwork must be wrapped with two inches of insulation as per table
10-D of the Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC) within the masonry cavity.
2.
Wrap the duct pipe for the first fifteen feet out of the masonry cavity with a minimum of
two inches of insulation as per 10-D of the UMC. After fifteen feet no insulation is
required but is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED in order to minimize heat loss.
WARNING: Maintain a minimum clearance of at least three inches to all combustible
materials over the entire length of the ductwork.
3.
Ducts must have adequate straps or other means of securing the ductwork to prevent
sagging or movement.
4.
Do not reduce the size of the ductwork. Avoid using 90o elbows where possible. Two 45o
elbows are preferable to a single 90o elbow and will minimize pressure drops within the
ductwork system.

FIREPLACE FURNACE OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS
Immediately after your Country Flame Fireplace has been properly installed it should be tested
for draft. A draft test is a simple method used to ensure air is moving up the chimney (positive air
flow versus a house that may have negative pressure.) Wad up one or two sheets of clean dry
newspaper. Set this paper in the middle of the firebox. Ensure that the rotary control damper is
turned fully open (clockwise). If the fireplace furnace is equipped with fireplace doors (optional), open
the door’s draft controls. If the chimney system is drawing properly, smoke from this burning newspaper
and the paper’s flames should be drawn up and into the open flue. If on the other hand, the smoke blows
into the room or burns very slowly, either there is negative pressure in the house or the existing chimney
system is not operating properly. Have the system checked by a qualified chimney sweep or certified
contractor or contact a Country Flame dealer.
Things that should be checked in case of poor draft:
•
Make sure the chimney flue damper is completely open. (Rotated clockwise)
•
See that the flue is clear of obstructions such as debris, creosote, nests, etc.
•
If chimney flue has chimney cap, remove it and make sure it is clean.
•
The chimney flue may not extend high enough above the roof or it may be
obstructed.
•
The chimney system may have leaks substantial enough to reduce the draw.
After checking the installation for proper draft, you are ready to build your first fire. The first fire should
be relatively light. This breaks in the heater slowly, rather than the sometimes-damaging effect of a flash
fire in the initial firing. For this first firing we suggest the following procedure:
Step 1 During the first firing of your Country Flame Fireplace, and anytime it is refired in the
future; the rotary control damper should be turned completely clockwise in the fully open
position. This allows for maximum draft.
Step 2 Place several pieces of wadded-up newspaper in the forward section of your Country
Flame heater directly on top of the grates.
Step 3 Directly on top of the newspaper; place a good size bundle of lighter wood, rolled-up
newspaper or small kindling.
Version 7.1
26
Step 4 On top of both the newspaper and the lighter wood, place two well seasoned, smallsized logs; one at the front, one directly behind it, and another small one in the middle top of the
other two. A small log on the top avoids smothering the fire.
Step 5 After the fire starts to burn, leave damper open and close fireplace doors (optional), if
installed. If equipped with Fireplace Doors (optional) open the door’s draft control and bring the
fire to desired burn with these controls.
Step 6 Allow the fireplace to warm thoroughly and all logs to begin burning well before either
adding additional wood or closing your draft controls. This will normally require fifteen minutes
or longer.
Step 7 Adjust your wall thermostat to the desired setting. The blowers are equipped with speed
controls to adjust airflow through the unit. These speed controls do not have an off position and
can only minimize or maximize airflow by turning the speed control knob located on the front
blower grille. As the fire heats up the fireplace furnace, the air discharge snap disc will close and
the blowers will turn on unless the thermostat is not calling for heat. Once the fireplace furnace
cools down, the thermostat or the air discharge snap disc will automatically shut the blowers off.
Do not use speed controls with an “off position” as this may cause the fireplace furnace system
to overheat.
Step 8 Adjust the variable speed fans to the desired speed setting by rotating the individual
knobs located in the middle of the blower box grilles.
INTERNAL THERMOSTAT
The internal air discharge thermostat (snap disc) is located on the inside right of the hot air discharge
grille on the front of the Smart Fireplace Furnace. This snap disc activates the fireplace blowers once the
air temperature in the discharge grille rises past 110º F. This same air discharge snap disc will
automatically turn off the blower systems when the discharge temperature drops below about 90º F. This
snap disc, along with a wall thermostat works controls the temperature of when the blower system
operates. The combination of the air discharge snap disc and the wall thermostat ensures that a specific
fireplace will not blow cold air or overheat the room by continuing to blow hot air when a specific room
temperature has been reached.
DISPOSAL OF 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, well away from any and all combustible materials,
pending final disposal of the cool ashes. All ashes should be retained in the closed container until all
cinders have thoroughly cooled. Ashes may also be removed through the ash dump opening.
USE OF LIQUID FUELS
Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start
or “freshen-up” a fire in the Country Flame fireplace furnace. Keep all such liquids or any other
combustible fluids well away from the fireplace furnace while it is in use.
CREOSOTE FORMATION AND 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 or a slowburning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote
Version 7.1
27
makes an extremely hot fire. It is the responsibility of the owner to periodically clean the chimney as
regular maintenance. Local chimney sweeps can provide such a service. In any event, owners of wood
burning fireplaces should become aware of care and maintenance required to prevent fires and creosote
formation.
WOOD
You may purchase wood by the stack, by the rick, by the pickup load, and by the cord. Buying wood can
be frustrating if you do not know what to expect or how to avoid problems. Talk to a local chimney
sweep or Country Flame dealer to locate knowledgeable personnel that provide cut wood.
A cord is 128 cubic feet of wood. It can be of various widths and lengths but the cubic measurement is
always the same. You should measure the loads that you purchase and asking your woodcutter to stack
the wood makes this job considerably easier. The ideal moisture content of wood is 12-20%, but this is
seldom available for purchase – it is normally the product of careful cutting, splitting, stacking, and
seasoning. The moisture content of green wood, full of sap, is approximately 80%. This green wood has
so much moisture that it is hard to establish a fire with it, and half of its energy content is expended just to
boil out its water content. This results in much less heat output for your home. A moisture meter is an
invaluable aid in evaluating your wood purchases and your choice of woodcutters. It is recommended to
order firewood that is 2” to 6” shorter than the firebox width to assure an easy fit.
Our particular definition of well-seasoned wood is wood that has been cut and split in the late winter and
left to dry out during the summer months. This well-seasoned wood will provide the best burn with the
least creosote build-up. Ordering your wood split will certainly be a convenience. If wood is to be split,
ensure proper equipment is available and proper safety precautions are utilized. Splitting wood
improperly can be very dangerous.
HEATING WITH WOOD
Maintaining comfortable heat for extended periods of time throughout your home is a talent that you will
acquire with time and experience. Your exact technique will vary with the layout of your home, your
flue and wood. WE can make suggestions for you to use as guidelines.
Timing - When you add wood to your fire it influences how long the fire will last. A full charge added
to a good set of coals and embers will burn several hours and produce even heat, ideal for overnight
burns. The same charge when added to a very hot fire or set of coals produces more intense heat for a
shorter period of time.
Quantity - Adding a large quantity of wood to a fire will cool the fire substantially and will be slow to
catch. Naturally the heat output will be reduced for a period of time. Adding smaller quantities will
produce faster starting and more even heating.
Ashes - Ashes in your heater insulate the coals in your fire and make them last longer. This means more
heat in the firebox and faster starting of fires. When cleaning the heater it is not necessary to allow the
fire to completely go out. Simply allow the fire to die down and push the coals and burning matter to one
side, then remove the ash by dropping them through the ash dump opening or placing them in a closed
container. (Refer to “Disposal of Ashes, page 23.) Alternate to the other side and leave a bed of coals in
the middle of your Country Flame firebox to start your next fire. Remember that failure to clean your
heater regularly will allow the ash to build up which will reduce the size of your firebox and lower heat
output.

FIREPLACE FURNACE MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS
SYSTEM
The majority of fires and accidents occurring with solid fuel-wood burning appliances are a result of
improper maintenance of a fireplace. Visual inspections of the fireplace furnace, the chimney, the
chimney connectors and the chimney cap on a semi-annual basis will reduce the probability of a fire or
accident.
A visual inspection should be made on monthly basis. All dampers and moving parts should move freely
without sticking. All metal parts should be checked for corrosion or air leaks. Any weak or damaged
metal should be replaced with equal or greater thickness metal. The inside of the chimney should be
checked regularly for the buildup of any creosote. If the inside of the chimney has a flat black
appearance it should be considered relatively clean. If the inside of the chimney has a shiny black
appearance this would indicate that creosote is building up and the chimney needs to be properly cleaned.
All factory-built chimney and chimney connectors should be professionally cleaned at least once each
year. Certified chimney sweeps advertise in the local yellow pages and should be contacted for
professional cleaning services. The efficiency of a fireplace is directly impacted by the maintenance
performed. Failure to keep the fireplace clean will limit the fireplace furnace heat output.
BLOWERS
The two (2) blower assemblies each have an electrical motor that has one oil hole. These motors
will require annual lubrication. High temperature blower motor systems are lubricated at the
factory and should require no further lubrication during the first year; however, at higher inlet
temperatures and with time, increased bearing life can be achieved by annually lubricating the
motors with 10 to 20 drops of Anderol Number 465 high temperature synthetic lubricant. DO NOT
USE petroleum-based oil, as bearing failure will result. Lubrication can be accomplished by
removing the each grille from the blower box face. WARNING: Electrical power must be
removed from the fireplace furnace to avoid shock hazard when lubricating the fans. Performing
this simple annual maintenance on motors will ensure smoother, quieter, and longer life from each
of these electrical devices.
OVER FIRING
Important: If any part of the fireplace furnace metal frame glows red, it is being over fired. Over firing
is dangerous. It not only reduces the life expectancy of the product, it can also overheat the immediate
area and increases the potential for creating dangerous conditions that can ignite surrounding areas.
Close the draft control to reduce a fire by limiting the amount of airflow through the firebox.
In the event of a power failure the blower motors will not operate. This will limit the amount of heat that
is being distributed through the duct system and will cause the fireplace furnace to burn hotter. In case of
a power outage, it is suggested that a medium to small fire be maintained in the firebox. DO NOT
OVERFIRE. Do not expect to heat the house to a desired temperature during a power outage.
Version 7.1
29
Whenever power is restored to a home, the blowers will automatically turn on; assuming a proper
amount of heat is present in the firebox so the air discharge snap disc has closed to complete the electrical
blower circuit.
If fireplace doors (optional) have been installed on a Country Flame Fireplace Furnace, then the fireplace
door’s air draft control should be open at least one turn while doors are in closed position with fire
burning.
OUTSIDE COMBUSTION AIR
When local building codes require a source of outside air for combustion it is recommended that the
outside air be routed to the firebox through the fireplace furnace foundation. Refer to STEP 1 FOOTINGS AND FOUNDATIONS or confer with the local code department for further instructions on
providing an outside combustion air source for the fireplace furnace.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
PROBLEM
Fireplace smokes
CAUSE
Chimney cap restricted
Damper not adjusted
Downdraft
Obstruction
Atmospheric conditions
Chimney obstruction
Too many flues to a
chimney
Paint curing
Leaky chimney
Wet wood
Normal buildup
Position of fire
Lack of Heat
Add a chimney cap designed to prevent
downdrafts.
Remove tree limbs or obstruction at least 10’
from top of chimney or increase chimney
height.
Occasional atmospheric conditions will cause a
smoking condition if the chimney pipe is not
straight up. It is best to wait for conditions to
change before burning with the doors open.
Check the flue system for obstructions and
clean.
Consult with Certified Chimney Expert.
Dry wood produces almost twice the BTU’s
and burns at the same rate as wet wood.
Wood cut in January and allowed to dry will
give excellent results for the fall season.
When starting a fire allow it to burn rapidly for
several minutes to burn off excess creosote. A
well-built fire is much more efficient and heats
better than a few sticks. A fire built next to the
sides of the heater provides much better heat
transfer.
Wet wood
Too small a fire
Too high a speed on
blower
Version 7.1
Secure the damper into the open position.
Open windows at first floor and close upper
floor windows.
New heaters always smoke on start up as the
paint is heated. Open windows and doors for
ventilation.
Joint leaks or mortar leaks will cause the draft
to be weak. Use cement or mortar to correct
these leaks.
Dry wood produces much less creosote
buildup than wet wood and less glass staining.
A damp cloth dipped in wood ashes works
well. Regular household glass cleaners are not
effective in cleaning glass. Using abrasives
such as steel wool or powder abrasives
permanently damages glass.
Approved
Fireplace glass cleaners are available.
Burning logs, close to the glass, will tend to
dirty the glass.
House too tight
Glass gets dirty (optional doors)
SOLUTION
Clean the chimney cap and remove any debris
that may have accumulated in the screen.
31
Always adjust the speed of the blower to the
size of the fire. Too high a fan speed produces
a cooling effect.

Naturally you will require more fuel in the
middle of winter than in the fall.
Turn the rotary damper toward the closed
setting until the draft is reduced.
Combustion is restricted when the air is
restricted. Be certain that the air intake is
properly adjusted and open enough.
Hard wood gives more heat than soft wood.
Rotten wood of any type gives very poor heat,
burns quickly and produces excessive ash.
Check Circuit Breaker. Ensure the thermostat
is properly set and fire has warmed the firebox
and air discharge snap disc. The fan speed
should be set to the appropriate speed not to
the “off” position.
Only comes on when the discharged air
reaches 110 degrees or higher. Test the air
discharge snap disc with a hair dryer. Fans
should begin to operate if both the wall
thermostat and air discharge snap disc
completes the blowers’ electrical circuit.
Unseasoned wood will produce more creosote
than dry, seasoned wood. Buying your wood
early will avoid these problems.
Closing the draft controls too tight prevents
the entry of air necessary for complete
combustion. Open your draft controls for up
to 20 minutes once a day to burn off
accumulations of creosote. Proper use of
commercial preparations will also give
satisfactory results.
Adding moisture to the air, as when a
humidifier is used, will increase the creosote
formation. Be sure to clean your flue more
often and burn your fires hotter.
Flitz and other commercial preparations work
very well for a bright, clear shine. Avoid
placing fingers on brass to preserve the
appearance.
