PRODUCT FEATURES
OPERATION
This heater is clean burning. It requires no outside venting. There is
no heat loss out a vent or up a chimney. Heat is generated by realistic,
dancing yellow flames. This heater is designed for vent-free operation with flue damper closed. It has been tested and approved to
ANSI Z21.11.2 standard for unvented heaters. State and local codes
in some areas prohibit the use of vent-free heaters. Non-thermostat
models may also be operated as a vented decorative (ANSI Z21.60)
product by opening flue damper.
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND
VENTILATION
WARNING: This heater 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 fuelburning 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
fuel-burning appliances.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE VENTILATION
The following are excerpts from National Fuel Gas Code. ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54, 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.
SAFETY PILOT
This heater has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensing (ODS)
safety shutoff system. The ODS/pilot is a required feature for ventfree room heaters. The ODS/pilot shuts off the heater if there is not
enough fresh air.
PIEZO IGNITION SYSTEM
This heater has a piezo ignitor. This system requires no matches,
batteries, or other sources to light heater.

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.

__________ (volume of space) x 20 = (Maximum Btu/Hr the space
can support)
Example: 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space) x 20 = 51,200 (maximum
Btu/Hr the space can support)
3.
If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above,
proceed to Determining Fresh-Air Flow For Heater Location on page 5.

Confined Space and Unconfined Space
The National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 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.
Multiply the space volume by 20 to determine the maximum Btu/Hr
the space can support.
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)
71,500 Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr used)
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only if there are doorless
passageways or ventilation grills between them.
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:
DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW FOR
HEATER LOCATION
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.
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 heater 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.
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 heater 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, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 Section 5.3 or applicable local codes.

Note: When used as a vented heater, appliance must be installed
only in a solid-fuel burning fireplace with a working flue and
constructed of noncombustible material.
If your heater is a manually-controlled model, you may use this
heater as a vented product. There are three reasons for operating
your heater in the vented mode.
1. The fireplace does not meet the clearance to combustibles requirements for vent-free operation.
2. State or local codes do not permit vent-free operation.
3. You prefer vented operation.
WARNING: You must secure this heater to fireplace floor. If not, heater will move when you adjust
controls. Moving heater may cause a gas leak.
WARNING: If installing in a sunken fireplace, special
care is needed. You must raise the fireplace floor to
allow access to heater control panel. This will insure
adequate air flow and guard against sooting and controls being damaged. Raise fireplace floor with noncombustible material. Make sure material is secure.
If reasons number 1 or 2 above apply to you, you must permanently
open chimney flue damper. You must install the damper clamp
accessory (to order, see Accessories, page 32). This will insure vented
operation (see Figure 10). The damper clamp will keep damper open.
Installation instructions are included with clamp accessory.
See chart below for minimum permanent flue opening you must
provide. Attach damper clamp so the minimum permanent flue
opening will be maintained at all times.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the heater burners are level. If heater is
not level, heater will not work properly. For thermostat models,
avoid damage to thermostat bulb. Avoid nicks or sharp bends in
thermostat bulb wire. Keep thermostat bulb in mounting bracket
until ready to mount base to floor. See Optional Positioning Of

CONNECTING TO GAS SUPPLY
WARNING: For natural gas units, never connect
heater to private (non-utility) gas wells. This gas is
commonly known as wellhead gas.
Installation Items Needed
Before installing heater, 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
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT
tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge connection. Purchase
the optional CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve from
your dealer. See Accessories, page 32.
For propane/LP gas, the installer must supply an external regulator.
The external regulator will reduce incoming gas pressure. You must
reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11 and 14 inches of water.
If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure, heater regulator damage
could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing down
as shown in Figure 13. Pointing the vent down protects it from
freezing rain or sleet.
Propane/LP
Supply Tank
External
Regulator
WARNING: This appliance requires a 1/2" NPT
(National Pipe Thread) inlet connection to the pressure regulator.
WARNING: A qualified service person must connect heater to gas supply. Follow all local codes.
CAUTION: Never connect propane/LP heater directly to the propane/LP supply. Propane/LP heaters
require an external regulator (not supplied). Install
the external regulator between the heater and propane/LP supply.

Figure 13 - External Regulator With Vent Pointing Down
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 heater. If
pipe is too small, undue loss of volume will occur.

Installation must include a 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 heater (see Figure 14).
CHECKING GAS CONNECTIONS
WARNING: Test all gas piping and connections
for leaks after installing or servicing. Correct all leaks
at once.
IMPORTANT: Install equipment shutoff valve in an accessible
location. The main gas valve is for turning on or shutting off the gas
to the appliance.
Check your building codes for any special requirements for locating
equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.
WARNING: Never use an open flame to check for
a leak. Apply a commercial leak detection solution to
all joints. Bubbles forming show a leak. Correct all
leaks at once.
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 heater valves.
CAUTION: For propane/LP units, make sure external regulator has been installed between propane/
LP supply and heater. See guidelines under Connecting to Gas Supply, page 11.
WARNING: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant
to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
We recommend that you install sediment trap in supply line as
shown in Figure 14. Locate sediment trap where it is within reach for
cleaning. Install in piping system between fuel supply and heater.
Locate sediment trap where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A
sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them
from going into heater controls. If sediment trap is not installed or
is installed wrong, heater may not run properly.

BURNER PRIMARY AIR HOLES
Air is drawn into the burner through the holes in the fitting at the
entrance to the burner. These holes may become blocked with dust
or lint. Periodically inspect these holes for any blockage and clean
as necessary. Blocked air holes will create soot.
CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Turn off heater and let cool before
cleaning.
CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burner,
and circulating air passageways of heater clean. Inspect these areas of heater before each use. Have
heater inspected yearly by a qualified service person.
Heater may need more frequent cleaning due to excessive lint from carpeting, bedding material, pet hair, etc.
ODS/PILOT AND BURNER
• Use a vacuum cleaner or small, soft bristled brush to clean.
CLEANING BURNER INJECTOR HOLDER
AND PILOT AIR INLET HOLE
The primary air inlet holes allow the proper amount of air to mix with
the gas. This provides a clean burning flame. Keep these holes clear
of dust, dirt, and lint. Clean these air inlet holes prior to each heating
season. Blocked air holes will create soot. We recommend that you
clean the unit every every three months during operation and have
heater inspected yearly by a qualified service person.
We also recommend that you keep the burner tube and pilot
assembly clean and free of dust and dirt. To clean these parts we
recommend using compressed air no greater than 30 PSI. Your local
computer store, hardware store, or home center may carry compressed air in a can. You can use a vacuum cleaner in the blow
position. If using compressed air in a can, please follow the directions on the can. If you don't follow directions on the can, you could
damage the pilot assembly.
1. Shut off the unit, including the pilot. Allow the unit to cool for
at least thirty minutes.
2. Inspect burner, pilot, and primary air inlet holes on injector
holder for dust and dirt (see Figure 31).
3. Blow air through the ports/slots and holes in the burner.
Injector Holder
(May Be Brass or
Aluminum
Depending on
Model)
MAIN BURNER
Periodically inspect all burner flame holes with the heater running. All
slotted burner flame holes should be open with yellow flame present.
All round burner flame holes should be open with a small blue flame
present. Some burner flame holes may become blocked by debris or

again. Remove any large particles of dust, dirt, lint, or pet hair
with a soft cloth or vacuum cleaner nozzle.
Blow air into the primary air holes on the injector holder.
In case any large clumps of dust have now been pushed into
the burner repeat steps 3 and 4.
Clean the pilot assembly also. A yellow tip on the pilot flame
indicates dust and dirt in the pilot assembly. There is a small pilot
air inlet hole about two inches from where the pilot flame comes out
of the pilot assembly (see Figure 32). With the unit off, lightly blow
air through the air inlet hole. You may blow through a drinking straw
if compressed air is not available.

OPTIONAL POSITIONING OF THERMOSTAT SENSING BULB
OPTIONAL POSITIONING OF
THERMOSTAT SENSING BULB
Capillary
Thermostat Screw
For Masonry and Factory-built Metal Fireplace
If your log set cycles to pilot, but the room temperature drops to a
lower than ideal comfort level before the log set comes back on, you
may want to reposition the thermostat sensing bulb.
Retaining
Clamp
The thermostat sensing bulb is located near the gas valve assembly
on the mounting bracket. This location allows the thermostat to keep
the room temperature at an ideal comfort level for most fireplace
applications. For positioning the thermostat sensing bulb elsewhere, an adhesive-backed mounting clip is available.
Tools needed: 1/4" hex driver or socket
1. Remove logs. Locate the gas valve assembly and thermostat
sensing bulb (see Figure 33).
2. With 1/4" hex driver or socket, loosen the thermostat screw.
Carefully slide the thermostat sensing bulb out of the retaining
clamp (see Figure 35).
Note: Do not remove the screw. Make sure you tighten the
screw after removing the thermostat sensing bulb.
IMPORTANT: Do not force or bend the thermostat sensing
bulb or capillary.
3. The thermostat sensing bulb may be located to the lower right
front side of fireplace. Determine location of sensing bulb, but
do not mount sensing bulb until step 5. If you have a masonry
fireplace, see Figure 36 for location. If you have a factorybuilt metal fireplace, see Figure 37 for location. If your fireplace has glass doors, position sensing bulb directly behind
door gap on right bottom side (see Figure 38).
4. The mounting clip must be a minimum of 3" from bottom of
fireplace to prevent crimping of capillary. Once you have decided on a location, clean the area thoroughly. Remove the paper backing from the adhesive on back of mounting clip. Press
the clip into the new location so that the thermostat sensing bulb
will be positioned vertically with the capillary at the bottom
(see Figure 39). Slide the thermostat sensing bulb into the clip.
IMPORTANT: Do not crimp capillary.

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
VENT-FREE GAS LOG HEATERS
DESA International warrants this product to be free from defects in materials and components for two (2) years 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 heater 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 heater 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 heater 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 ALL COMPONENTS 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.
