WARNINGS
WARNING: Keep flue open
when operating unit.
IMPORTANT: Read this owner’s
manual carefully and completely
before trying to assemble, operate, or service this log set. Improper use of this log set can cause
serious injury or death from burns,
fire, explosion, electrical shock,
and carbon monoxide poisoning.
DANGER: Carbon monoxide
poisoning may lead to death!
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Early
signs of carbon monoxide poisoning resemble the flu, with headaches, dizziness,
or nausea. If you have these signs, the log set
may not be working properly. Get fresh air
at once! Have log set serviced. Some people
are more affected by carbon monoxide than
others. These include pregnant women,
people with heart or lung disease or anemia,
those under the influence of alcohol, and
those at high altitudes.
Natural Gas: Natural gas is odorless. An
odor-making agent is added to the gas. The
odor helps you detect a gas leak. However,
the odor added to the gas can fade. Gas may
be present even though no odor exists.
Make certain you read and understand all
Warnings. Keep this manual for reference.
It is your guide to safe and proper operation
of this log set.
WARNING: Any change to this
log set or its controls can be
dangerous.

FOR VENTED NATURAL GAS LOGS
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.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE
VENTILATION
The following are excerpts from National
Fuel Gas Code. NFPA 54/ANS Z223.1, Section 5.3, Air for Combustion and Ventilation.
All spaces in homes fall into one of the three
following ventilation classifications:
1. Unusually Tight Construction
2. Unconfined Space
3. Confined Space
The information on pages 4 through 6 will
help you classify your space and provide
adequate ventilation.
Unusually Tight Construction
The air that leaks around doors and windows may provide enough fresh air for
combustion and ventilation. However, in
buildings of unusually tight construction,
you must provide additional fresh air.
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where:
a. walls and ceilings exposed to the
outside atmosphere have a continuous water vapor retarder with
a rating of one perm (6x10-11 kg
per pa-sec-m2) or less with openings gasketed or sealed and
b. weather stripping has been
added on openable windows and
doors and
c. caulking or sealants are applied
to areas such as joints around
window and door frames, between sole plates and floors, between wall-ceiling joints, between wall panels, at penetrations for plumbing, electrical, and
gas lines, and at other openings.
Confined and Unconfined Space
The National Fuel Gas Code (ANS Z223.1,
1992 Section 5.3) defines a confined space
as a space whose volume is less than 50
cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per
kw) of the aggregate input rating of all
appliances installed in that space and an
unconfined space as a space whose volume
is not less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu
per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate
input rating of all appliances installed in that
space. Rooms communicating directly with
the space in which the appliances are installed*, through openings not furnished
with doors, are considered a part of the
unconfined space.
This log set shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually tight construction
unless provisions are provided for adequate
combustion and ventilation air.
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only
if there are doorless passageways or ventilation grills between them.
If your home meets all of the three
criteria above, you must provide additional fresh air. See Ventilation Air
From Outdoors, page 6.
If your home does not meet all of the
three criteria above, proceed to Determining Fresh-Air Flow For Log Set
Location, page 5.

DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW FOR APPLIANCE LOCATION
Determining if You Have a Confined or Unconfined Space
Use this work sheet to determine if you have a confined or unconfined space.
Space: Includes the room in which you will install appliance plus any adjoining rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grills
between the rooms.
1. Determine the volume of the space (length x width x height).
Length x Width x Height = _________________ cu. ft. (volume of space)
Example: Space size 20 ft. (length) x 16 ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling height) = 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space)
If additional ventilation to adjoining room is supplied with grills or openings, add the volume of these rooms to the total volume of
the space.
2. Divide the space volume by 50 cubic feet to determine the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support.
_____________ (volume of space) ÷ 50 cu. ft. = (maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)
Example: 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space) ÷ 50 cu. ft. = 51.2 or 51,200 (maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)
3. Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.
Gas fireplace logs
_____________ Btu/Hr
Example:
Gas water heater*
_____________ Btu/Hr
Gas water heater
40,000 Btu/Hr
Gas furnace
_____________ Btu/Hr
Gas fireplace logs + 55,000 Btu/Hr
Vented gas heater
_____________ Btu/Hr
Total
= 95,000 Btu/Hr
Vent-free heater
_____________ Btu/Hr
Other gas appliances* + _____________ Btu/Hr
Total
= _____________ Btu/Hr
* Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Direct-vent draws combustion air from the outdoors and vents to the outdoors.
4. Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support with the actual amount of Btu/Hr used.
_____________ Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
_____________ Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
Example: 51,200 Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
95,000 Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
The space in the above example is a confined space because the actual Btu/Hr used is more than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support.
You must provide additional fresh air. Your options are as follows:
A. Rework worksheet, adding the space of an adjoining room. If the extra space provides an unconfined space, remove door to adjoining room or add ventilation grills between rooms. See Ventilation Air From Inside Building, page 6.
B. Vent room directly to the outdoors. See Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 6.
C. Install a lower Btu/Hr heater, if lower Btu/Hr size makes room unconfined.
If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support, the space is an unconfined space. You will need no
additional fresh air ventilation.
WARNING: If the area in which the appliance may be operated is smaller than that defined as an unconfined
space or if the building is of unusually tight construction, provide adequate combustion and ventilation air by one
of the methods described in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANS Z223.1, 1992, Section 5.3 or applicable local codes.

VENTILATION AIR
Ventilation Air From Inside
Building
This fresh air would come from an adjoining
unconfined space. When ventilating to an
adjoining unconfined space, you must provide two permanent openings: one within
12" of the ceiling and one within 12" of the
floor on the wall connecting the two spaces
(see options 1 and 2, Figure 2). You can also
remove door into adjoining room (see option 3, Figure 2). Follow the National Fuel
Gas Code NFPA 54/ANS Z223.1, Section
5.3, Air for Combustion and Ventilation for
required size of ventilation grills or ducts.
WARNING: Rework worksheet, adding the space of the
adjoining unconfined space. The
combined spaces must have
enough fresh air to supply all
appliances in both spaces.
Ventilation Air From Outdoors
Provide extra fresh air by using ventilation
grills or ducts. You must provide two permanent openings: one within 12" of the
ceiling and one within 12" of the floor.
Connect these items directly to the outdoors
or spaces open to the outdoors. These spaces
include attics and crawl spaces.
IMPORTANT: Do not provide openings for
inlet or outlet air into attic if attic has a
thermostat-controlled power vent. Heated air
entering the attic will activate the power vent.

Be sure to use the correct orifice for your
appliance. The hardware kit included
with this appliance contains two orifices
with a cone-like shape. If you have an
18" set, the orifice for the burner inlet
fitting is red; for a 30" set, it is black. If
you have a 24" log set, the orifice is already installed inside the fitting.
3. For an 18" or 30" set, use a 10mm
socket or nut driver to remove the orifice from the propane/LP burner inlet
fitting. Choose the correct orifice for
your log set size and install in place of
the orifice you just removed.
4. Using thread sealant (resistant to the
action of propane/LP gas) on larger end
of fitting, screw the burner inlet fitting
through hole and into burner manifold.
Tighten using a wrench.
5 . Follow steps 1 through 12 under Natural Gas Installation, pages 9 and 10.

Propane/LP Gas Conversion
To convert to propane/LP gas, the burner
inlet fitting and pilot orifice must be replaced. The propane/LP burner inlet fitting is
supplied with the orifice installed for a 24"
log set. If you have an 18" or 30" set, you
must change this orifice also. See Figure 1,
page 3 for product identification.
Burner Inlet Fitting
1. Remove the burner inlet fitting from the
burner pan assembly. DO NOT remove
the orifice from this fitting. The propane/LP burner inlet fitting is included
in the hardware kit (see Figure 15).

Figure 16 - Remove Burner Inlet Fitting
Changing Pilot Orifice
The pilot is provided with a natural gas
orifice installed. For propane/LP gas you
must remove it and replace it with an propane/LP orifice. The hardware kit contains
an propane/LP orifice with a red stripe for
converting the pilot.
1. Gently loosen and remove the pilot
line connection from the bracket (see
Figure 17, page 11).

Light the burner with the shut-off valve
no more than half open and holding a
match slightly in front of the pan (see
Lighting Instructions, page 12).
Inspect all connections for bubbles, raw
gas odor, or flame from any area other
than the burner (leaks). If leaks are detected, shut off the gas valve immediately. Tighten, or reassemble the loose
connection(s) using pipe joint compound until burner system is leak free.
When the burner is tested and leak free,
observe the individual tongues of flame
on the burner. Note: The burner design
includes more ports on the outside of the
bar. Make sure that all ports are clear
and producing flame evenly across the
burner. If any ports appear blocked, clear
them by removing the burner manifold
and reaming the ports with a modified
paper clip or other suitable tool.
When finished testing, turn the gas shutoff valve OFF to extinguish all flames.

Place the grate over the burner pan
where the two outer horizontal supports
on the grate fit into the two pan positioning notches in the rear vertical edge
of the pan.
Slide the two rear log grate steps over
the two outer horizontal supports on the
grate as shown in Figure 18 (Not Included with Oxford Oak Models).
Place the back log on the grate onto the
grate steps (see Figure 19). If assembling
Oxford Oak models, place log on the
back of the grate bars (see Figure 19).
Place the front log(s) on the grate and
slide forward against the front bars on
the grate (see Figure 19).
Place the smaller top logs onto the bottom logs (see Figure 20). Leave as
much open space between logs as possible to minimize flame impingement
and sooting. Note: Logs may chip if
they are handled roughly or if hit together while being placed.

OPERATING
APPLIANCE
BEFORE LIGHTING smell all around
the appliance area for gas. Be sure to
smell next to the floor because some gas is
heavier than air and will settle on the
floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electric switch; do
not use any phone in your building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier
from a neighbor’s phone. Follow the
gas supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier,
call the fire department.

CURING LOGS
During the 2-3 hour appliance break-in
period, you may detect an odor from the
appliance as the various paints and compounds used in the manufacturing of this
log set cure. This is a normal and temporary situation that is not cause for alarm.
However, you may want to provide extra
ventilation to the room during this time.
To ensure proper curing of the logs:
• Ignite a 2" flame and maintain it for 1
hour.
• Burn the logs in consecutive 1 hour periods raising the flame an additional
2" to full flame height for a total of
three hours.

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
VANGUARD VENTED GAS LOGS
DESA International warrants this product to be free from defects on burner system for three (3) 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 THREE (3) 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.
