Location and Space Requirements
PRODUCT FEATURES
These are a few facts that can help you understand and enjoy your
vented decorative fireplace:
• Do not install aftermarket vent dampers. Manual or Auto
matic vent dampers are not approved for use with this appliance.
• The (V)CB36(N,P)(E) series of vented decorative fireplaces may
be recessed into an exterior chase, an interior flush wall enclosure
or a framed-in corner installation.
• Your fireplace is designed to be used in zero clearance installations. Wall or framing material can be placed directly against
any exterior surface on the back, sides, or top of your fireplace,
except when clearances are required from flue vent pipe. See
Clearances on page 5.
• Models (V)CB36(N,P) are equipped with a millivolt gas control
system that does not require electricity to operate. A piezo ignitor
is provided to light the pilot without using matches or lighters.
• Models (V)CB36(NE/PE) are equipped with an electronic ignition
system that requires 120VAC to operate. An electrode ignitor
automatically lights the pilot flame when the fireplace is turned on.
• These fireplaces can accept any approved 4” B-Type venting
system and must be terminated vertically through the roof
using a listed type vent cap only. See venting instructions on
pages # and # for proper venting requirements.
• These vented fireplaces require indoor air for combustion and must
be installed in a room of sufficient size to provide adequate fresh air
for safe and proper operation. The room intended for installation must
be of sufficient size to meet the requirements for an unconfined space
as defined in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54,
Section 5.3, Air for Combustion and Ventilaton. If sufficient air for
combustion is not available a make-up air kit model AK4 may be
required to provide outside air to this appliance. Check your local
codes as to specific requirements for make-up air.
• If recessed into a wall, you can avoid extra framing by positioning your fireplace against an already existing framing member.
• A hearth extension is not required with this appliance. If one is
installed, it is for austhetic purposes only and does not have to
meet standard requirements for hearth extensions.
• If you plan on installing a television or entertainment center recessed above your fireplace, it is recommended that you maintain a minimum 18” above the top of louver opening.
• When locating the termination cap, it is important to observe the
minimum vent height and clearances required under code, see
Venting Installation Instructions, page 7.
• Do not recess termination cap into a wall or siding.
• You may paint the termination cap with 450°F (232°C) heatresistant paint to coordinate with the exterior finish.

• Unautorized modification of the venting system (Do not cut
or alter vent components)
• Installation of any component part not manufactured or approved by DESA.
• 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.
Standing codes requirements concerning B-type vent installations
may vary within your state, province or local codes juristdition.
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 No. 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

VENTING INSTALLATION Continued
Example 1: Shows the minimum allowable system height and
lateral offset for a 60° degrees or greater inclination. Code specifies
that offsets at 60° degrees or greater are considered horizontal and
must follow the 75% percent rule for lateral to total certical system
height. Codes also allows only one offset in the total system when
at 60° degrees 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% percent 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° degrees of inclination. Multiple offsets are permitted if they do not exceed 45°
degrees of inclination. The total lengths of the two offsets are not
required to meet the 75% percent rule.
Example 3: Shows a single offset at 45° degrees of inclination and
therefore the lateral length at 10 feet of offset does not have to meet
the 75% percent allowable rule.
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.

BURNER FLAME PATTERN
AIR ADJUSTMENT SETTING
Burner flames will be steady; not lifting or floating. Flame patterns
will be different from unit to unit and will vary depending on
installation type and weather conditions.
The main burner air shutter opening is factory set to the following:
If the vent configuration is installed incorrectly, the flames will lift
or “ghost”. This can be dangerous. Inspect the flames after installation to ensure proper installation and performance.
Figure 40 shows a typical flame pattern.
The air shutter may require adjustment depending on the altitude,
venting condition, burner operation and general flame appearance.
If flames are lifting or sooting the shutter may require opening.
If flames are too blue or improperly lighting the shutter may
require closing. See Figure 41 for proper air adjustment.
If burner flame pattern differs from that described:
• turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 16 or 17)
• see Troubleshooting, pages 21 through 25
1/8" - Natural Gas
3/4" - LP / Propane Gas
IMPORTANT: Do not reduce the air shutter opening any lower than
the designed minimum stop setting of 1/8"

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
CAUTION: Do not vacumm if pieces are hot.
WARNING: Turn off fireplace and let cool before
cleaning.
CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burners,
and circulating air passages of fireplace clean.
Inspect these areas of fireplace before each use.
Have fireplace inspected yearly by a qualified service
person. Fireplace may need more frequent cleaning
due to excessive lint from carpeting, bedding mate
rial, pet hair, etc.
GLASS DOOR
WARNING: Do not block required air openings
around glass or louver panels. Ventilated compartments should be inspected and vacummed at least
once a year to prevent blockage prior to operation.
PILOT AND BURNERS
WARNING: Handle glass door panel with care. Do
not strike, slam, or otherwise abuse glass. Do not
operate fireplace with the glass door removed,
cracked, or broken.
WARNING: Do not use abrasive cleaners as this
may 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, nonabrasive 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, on page 14 of this
manual 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
26). 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/Replaceing Glass Door, page 14). Vacuum all glass pieces with
a shop vac.
117437-01
Use only the tempered glass door replacement intended for this
fireplace (see Replacement Parts, page 26 for detail on ordering).
No substitutions may be made. See Removing/Replacing Glass
Door, on page 14 for instructions for replaceing glass door.
•
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 15, to properly replace logs.
•
Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any carbon buildup on logs.
•
Replace log(s) if broken. See Replacement Parts on page 26.
•
Replace ember material periodically as needed. See Replacement Parts on page 26.
VENTING SYSTEM
Conduct annual inspection of the venting system following these
guidlines:
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 ito 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.
