AIR FOR
COMBUSTION AND
VENTILATION
WARNING: This appliance
shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight
construction unless provisions
are provided for adequate combustion and ventilation air. Read
the following instructions to insure proper fresh air for this and
other fuel-burning appliances in
your home.
Today’s homes are built more energy efficient than ever. New materials, increased
insulation, and new construction methods
help reduce heat loss in homes. Home owners
weather strip and caulk around windows and
doors to keep the cold air out and the warm air
in. During heating months, home owners
want their homes as airtight as possible.
While it is good to make your home energy
efficient, your home needs to breathe. Fresh
air must enter your home. All fuel-burning
appliances need fresh air for proper combustion and ventilation.
Exhaust fans, fireplaces, clothes dryers, and
fuel burning appliances draw air from the
house to operate. You must provide adequate fresh air for these appliances. This
will insure proper venting of vented fuelburning appliances.
INSTALLATION
CAUTION: Do not remove
the metal data plates attached
to the burner pan. The data plates
contain important warranty information.
WARNING: Before installing
in a solid fuel burning fireplace,
the chimney flue and firebox must
be cleaned of soot, creosote,
ashes, and loose paint by a qualified chimney cleaner. Creosote
will ignite if highly heated. A dirty
chimney flue may create and distribute soot within the house. Inspect chimney flue for damage.
NOTICE: Installation, service, and
repair of this appliance must be
performed by a qualified installer,
service agency, company or gas
supplier experienced with this
type of gas appliance. Only factory authorized components listed
in these instructions may be used
in accordance with the
manufacturer’s instructions and
all codes and requirements of the
authority having jurisdiction. Any
modifications to this kit, or use of
unauthorized components or accessory items will void the
manufacturer’s warranty, and may
result in a hazardous condition.
FLUE OPENING
SPECIFICATIONS
Note: This vented appliance must be installed only in a solid-fuel burning fireplace
with a working flue and constructed of noncombustible material.
The charts in Figure 2, page 5, indicate
technical information regarding the installation of your gas log set. Please make sure
that all of the specifications shown are applicable before installation is attempted.
The fireplace must include a working flue
and venting system with the minimum openings shown in the Figure 2, page 5.
CHECK GAS TYPE
Use only natural gas. If your gas supply is not
natural gas, you must install ON/OFF Safety
Valve/Pilot Kit (see Accessories, page 11).
Call dealer where you bought log set.
If the fireplace does not have a gas supply
shutoff valve, one must be installed.
VENTING SPECIFICATIONS
FOR INSTALLATION
The fireplace chimney flue and vent must be
drafting properly. To check the vent for
proper drafting: Light a tightly rolled newspaper on one end and place it at the inside
front edge of the fireplace. Observe the
smoke and be sure the vent is properly
drawing it up the chimney. If the smoke
spills out into the room, extinguish the flame
and remove any obstruction until proper
venting is achieved.
The chimney flue must remain open a minimum of 3" at all times during the operation
of this log set.

CAUTION: Use only new,
black iron or steel pipe. Internally-tinned copper tubing may
be used in certain areas. Check
your local codes. Use pipe of 1/2"
diameter or greater to allow
proper gas volume to log set. If
pipe is too small, undue loss of
pressure will occur.
WARNING: Test all gas piping and connections for leaks
after installing or servicing. Correct all leaks at once.
WARNING: Never use an
open flame to check for a leak.
Apply a mixture of liquid soap
and water to all joints. Bubbles

WARRANTY INFORMATION
KEEP THIS WARRANTY
Model
Serial No.
Date Purchased
Always specify model and serial numbers when communicating with the factory.
We reserve the right to amend these specifications at any time without notice. The only warranty applicable is our standard written
warranty. We make no other warranty, expressed or implied.
LIMITED WARRANTY
COMFORT GLOW VENTED GAS LOGS
DESA International warrants this product to be free from defects on burner system for two (2) years and logs for a lifetime from the
date of first purchase, provided that the product has been properly installed, operated and maintained in accordance with all applicable
instructions. To make a claim under this warranty the Bill of Sale or cancelled check must be presented.
This warranty is extended only to the original retail purchaser. This warranty covers the cost of part(s) required to restore this log set
to proper operating condition and an allowance for labor when provided by a DESA Authorized Service Center. Warranty part(s) MUST
be obtained through authorized dealers of this product and/or DESA International who will provide original factory replacement parts.
Failure to use original factory replacement parts voids this warranty. The log set MUST be installed by a qualified installer in accordance
with all local codes and instructions furnished with the unit.
This warranty does not apply to parts that are not in original condition because of normal wear and tear, or parts that fail or become
damaged as a result of misuse, accidents, lack of proper maintenance or defects caused by improper installation. Travel, diagnostic cost,
labor, transportation and any and all such other costs related to repairing a defective log set will be the responsibility of the owner.
TO THE FULL EXTENT ALLOWED BY THE LAW OF THE JURISDICTION THAT GOVERNS THE SALE OF THE PRODUCT;
THIS EXPRESS WARRANTY EXCLUDES ANY AND ALL OTHER EXPRESSED WARRANTIES AND LIMITS THE DURATION OF ANY AND ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE TO TWO (2) YEARS ON BURNER SYSTEM AND A LIFETIME ON LOGS FROM THE DATE
OF FIRST PURCHASE; AND DESA INTERNATIONAL’S LIABILITY IS HEREBY LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF
THE PRODUCT AND DESA INTERNATIONAL SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY OTHER DAMAGES WHATSOEVER
INCLUDING INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES.
Some states do not allow a limitation on how long an implied warranty lasts or an exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitation on implied warranties, or exclusion or limitation on damages may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights that vary from state to state.
