Installation Precautions
NOTICE: Failure to follow these instructions will void the warranty.
• Wear gloves and safety glasses for
protection
• Use extreme caution when using ladders
or when on roof tops
• Be aware of electrical wiring locations in
walls and ceilings
The following actions will void the warranty
on this product:
• Installation of any damaged venting
component
• Unauthorized modification of the venting
system (Do not cut or alter vent components)
• Installation of any component part not
manufactured or approved by DESA Heating, LLC
• Installation other than as instructed by
these instructions
WARNING: Read all instructions completely and thoroughly
before attempting installation.
Failure to do so could result in
serious injury, property damage
or loss of life.
WARNING: B-type vent pipe
airspace clearance to combustibles is 1" on all sides. Where
the vent pipe passes through a
vertical wall a listed thimble approved for use with B-type vent
must be used.
Venting Installation
A 4" B-type venting system must be connected
to the appliance for venting to the outside of
the building.
The following section is provided as a guide to
install a standard B-type vent installation.
Standing code requirements concerning
B-type vent installations may vary within
your state, province or local codes jurisdiction. Therefore, it is recommended that you
check with your local building code authority
for specific requirements or in absence of
local codes, follow Section 7.0 of the current National Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ANSI
Z223.1 or in Canada with CAN/CSA B149
for Category I systems using double wall
B-1 vent pipe.
This gas appliance must be vented to the
outdoors only and may not be terminated into
an attic space or into a chimney flue servicing
a solid fuel burning appliance.
This appliance may be vented through a
manufactured chimney liner system if all are
listed, inspected and approved by local codes
and/or building authorities.
The examples shown in Figure 10, page 10,
are typical of most B-vent installations and
code practices.
117437-01D
WARNING: This gas fireplace
and vent assembly must be vented
directly to the outside. The venting
system must NEVER be attached
to a chimney serving a separate
solid fuel burning appliance.
Example 1: Shows the minimum allowable system height and lateral offset for a 60° or greater
inclination. Code specifies that offsets at 60° or
greater are considered horizontal and must follow the 75% rule for lateral to total vertical system height. Codes also allows only one offset
in the total system when at 60° or greater. The
total vertical height in this example represents
the minimum height of 8 feet and therefore the
allowable lateral is 6 feet when the 75% rule
applies. If the lateral length must exceed 75%
then the system must be sized in accordance
with the Category I venting tables.
Example 2: Shows multiple offsets each at
45° of inclination. Multiple offsets are permitted if they do not exceed 45° of inclination.
The total lengths of the two offsets are not
required to meet the 75% rule.
Example 3: Shows a single offset at 45° of
inclination and therefore the lateral length at 10
feet of offset does not have to meet the 75%
allowable rule.
www.desatech.com
VENTING INSTALLATION
Continued
In each case the offsets must be supported
and firestops must be positioned wherever
the vent must pass through a sub-floor, ceiling joist or an attic overhang. The vent pipe
must terminate vertically into a listed type vent
cap and extend a sufficient height through
an approved roof flashing, roof jack or a roof
thimble. At all points the listed clearances
must be maintained.
Vent terminations must be located in accordance with height and proximity rules of NFPA
No. 54 or CAN/CSA B149. These rules apply
to vents at 12" diameter or less and require a
minimum height in accordance with the roof
pitch and a minimum of 8 foot distance from a
vertical wall or obstruction (see Figure 11).
If venting horizontally through a side wall becomes necessary, a listed thimble approved
for use with B-type vent must be used. Check
with your local codes before venting through
a side wall.
Some codes areas allow the use of existing Btype vent systems if the system is at or above
the recommended diameter of the flue.
The flue connection must be made using listed
B-type connectors and the existing system
must be code inspected for damage and proper
installation.
It is not recommended that this appliance be
common vented with and existing gas burning
appliance. However, if it becomes necessary
to common vent the appliance. The venting
system must be sized and configured in accordance with the common venting guides
Appendix G of the current National Fuel
Gas Code NFPA No. 54/ANSI Z223.1 and in
Canada with CAN/CSA B149.
Note: Before connecting this appliance to an
existing vent system or a common venting
system consult with your local architect planner, or building official.

Checking for Proper Venting
After completing and checking electrical,
gas and vent connections, follow lighting
instructions and allow main burner to run for
approximately 5 minutes. Hold a match or
butane lighter flame, near opening between
glass and fireplace face and play it along
entire length of opening (Smoke may also be
used). Proper venting will tend to draw flame
or smoke into appliance. Improper venting,
escaping or spillage of burned gas, is indicated when match flickers or goes out (see
Figure 12). Smoke will also tend to disperse
away from appliance.
If appliance is not venting properly, shut it off
and notify your installer or a qualified service
agency to inspect venting system.

Your DESA Heating, LLC direct-vent fireplace
has been tested and approved in the USA
for elevations from 0-2,000 feet (610 m) and
in Canada at elevations from 0-4,500 feet
(1,372 m).
When installing a non-high altitude fireplace
at an elevation above 2,000 feet (610 m) (in
the USA), you may need to decrease the input
rating by changing the existing burner orifice
to a smaller size. Reduce input 4% for each
1,000 feet (305 m) above sea level. Check
with your local gas company for proper orifice
size identification.
When installing this fireplace in Canada at an
elevation above 4,500 feet (1,372 m), Check
with local or provincial code authorities.
Consult your local gas company to help determine the proper orifice for your location.
For assistance with any high altitude installation contact DESA Heating, LLC’s Customer
Service Department at 1-866-672-6040.

Fireplace Installation
CHECK GAS TYPE
Use only the correct type of gas (natural or
propane/LP). If your gas supply is not the
correct gas type, do not install fireplace. See
dealer where you purchased your fireplace for
proper gas type fireplace or tro purchase gas
conversion kit (see Accessories, page 31).
Installing Gas Piping to
Fireplace Location
WARNING: A qualified
service person must connect
fireplace to gas supply. Follow
all local codes.
CAUTION: For propane/LP
units, never connect fireplace
directly to the propane/LP supply.
This heater requires an external
regulator (not supplied). Install
the external regulator between the
fireplace and propane/LP supply.
Installation Items Needed
Before installing fireplace, make sure you
have the items listed below.
• external regulator (supplied by installer)
• piping (check local codes)
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• equipment shutoff valve *
• test gauge connection *
• sediment trap
• tee joint
• pipe wrench
• approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if allowed by local codes)
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff
valve with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge connection. Purchase
the CSA design-certified equipment shutoff
valve from your retailer.
For propane/LP connection only, installer
must supply an external regulator. External
regulator will reduce incoming gas pressure.
You must reduce incoming gas pressure to
between 11" and 14" of water. If you do not
reduce incoming gas pressure, fireplace
regulator damage could occur. Install external
regulator with vent pointing down as shown in
Figure 22. Pointing vent down protects it from
freezing rain or sleet.
117437-01D
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 fireplace.
If pipe is too small, undue loss
of volume will occur.
Installation must include an equipment shutoff
valve, union and plugged 1/8" NPT tap. Locate
NPT tap within reach for test gauge hook up.
NPT tap must be upstream from fireplace
(see Figure 23).

IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shutoff valve) in an accessible location.
The main gas valve is for turning on or shutting
off gas to appliance.
Check your building codes for any special
requirements for locating equipment shutoff
valve to fireplaces.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT
threads. This will prevent excess sealant from
going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could
result in clogged fireplace valves.
WARNING: Use pipe joint
sealant that is resistant to liquid
petroleum (LP) gas.
We recommend that you install a sediment
trap/drip leg in supply line as shown in Figure
23, page 15. Locate sediment trap/drip leg
where it is within reach for cleaning. Install
in piping system between fuel supply and
fireplace. Locate sediment trap/drip leg where
trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants.
This keeps them from going into fireplace
gas controls. If sediment trap/drip leg is not
installed or is installed wrong, fireplace may
not run properly.
CONNECTING FIREPLACE TO GAS
SUPPLY
Installation Items Needed
• 3/4" and a 7/8" open end wrench or adjustable wrench
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas, not
provided)
1. Remove lower louver door panel by lifting
up until disengaged. Swing forward and
out of locating slots at bottom.
2. Route flexible gas line (provided by installer) from equipment shutoff valve to
fireplace. Route flexible gas supply line
through one access hole on each side of
fireplace cabinet.
3. Attach flexible gas line from gas supply
to the 1/2" flare fitting provided on control
valve (see Figure 24).
4. Check all gas connections for leaks (see

Inspecting Burners
Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame
patterns often.
PILOT ASSEMBLY
The pilot assembly is factory preset for
proper flame height. Alterations may have
occurred during shipping and handling. Call
a qualified service person to readjust the pilot
if necessary.
The position and pattern of pilot flames in relation to sensing devices should be as shown
in Figures 38 and 39 respectively.
Pilot flame may need adjustment in order
for thermocouple, thermopile and/or ignition
system to sense pilot flame.
If your pilot assembly does not meet these
requirements:
• turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to
Appliance, page 20 or 21)
• see sections under Troubleshooting,
page 25
Burner Flame Patterns
Burner flames will be steady, not lifting or
floating. Flame patterns will differ from unit
to unit and will vary depending on installation
type and weather conditions.
If vent configuration is installed incorrectly,
flames will lift or “ghost”. This can be dangerous. Inspect flames after installation to ensure
proper installation and performance. Figure 40
shows a typical flame pattern.
If burner flame pattern differs from that described:
• turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to
Appliance, page 20 or 21)
• see Troubleshooting, page 25

damage glass. Use a nonabrasive household glass cleaner to
clean glass. Do not clean glass
when hot.
Glass must be cleaned periodically. During
start-up it is normal for condensation to form
on the inside of the glass causing lint, dust,
and other airborne particles to cling to the
glass surface. During initial start-up a slight
film may form on the glass due to paint curing.
The glass should be cleaned several times
with a non-ammonia, non-abrasive household
cleaner and warm water after the first two
weeks of operation. Thereafter, clean the
glass two or three times during each heating
season, depending on the usage and circumstances present. Refer to Removing/Replacing Glass Door, page 18, when removing
glass door for cleaning.

WARNING: Only parts supplied by the manufacturer should
be used when replacing broken
or damaged glass door panel
(see Replacement Parts, page
31). This glass door panel is
a complete unit. No substitute
materials may be used.
CAUTION: Wear gloves and
safety glasses while handling
or removing broken glass. Do
not remove if glass is hot. Keep
children and pets away from
glass.
If glass has been broken, carefully remove
glass door (see Removing/Replacing Glass
Door, page 18). Vacuum all glass pieces with
a shop vac.
CAUTION: Do not vacuum if
pieces are hot.
Use only the tempered glass door replacement intended for this fireplace (see Replacement Parts, page 31 for detail on ordering).
No substitutions may be made. See Removing/Replacing Glass Door, page 18 for instructions for replacing glass door.
WARNING: Do not block
required air openings around
glass or louver panels. Ventilated compartments should be
inspected and vacuumed at least
once a year to prevent blockage
prior to operation.
PILOT AND BURNERS
• Remove ember material before cleaning
burners and replace
• Burner and controls should be cleaned
with compressed air to remove dust, dirt
or lint.
• Use a vacuum cleaner or small, soft bristled
brush to remove excess dust, dirt or lint.

LOGS
• If you remove logs for cleaning, refer to
Installing Logs and Glowing Embers, page
19, to properly replace logs.
• Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any
carbon buildup on logs.
• Replace log(s) if broken. See Replacement
Parts, page 31.
• Replace ember material periodically as
needed. See Replacement Parts, page 31.
VENTING SYSTEM
Conduct annual inspection of the venting
system following these guidelines:
1. Check areas of venting system that are
exposed to the weather corrosion (rust
spots or streaks and in extreme cases,
holes). Have these items replaced immediately by a qualified service person.
2. Remove the vent cap and shine a flashlight
into vent. Remove any foreign material.
3. Check for evidence of excessive condensation. Continuous condensation can
cause corrosion of caps, pipes and fittings
and can be caused by having excessive
lateral runs, too many elbows or exterior
portions of the system being exposed to
cold weather.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe section or fitting has been distributed and
loosened. Check mechanical supports
such as wall straps for rigidity.
