SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNING: This product contains and/or generates
chemicals known to the State of California to cause
cancer or birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
IMPORTANT: Read this owner’s manual carefully
and completely before trying to assemble, operate,
or service this fireplace. Improper use of this fireplace can cause serious injury or death from burns,
fire, explosions, electrical shock, and carbon monoxide poisoning.
DANGER: Carbon monoxide poisoning may lead
to death!
This fireplace must be installed by a qualified (certified or licensed)
service person. It has a sealed gas combustion chamber that uses a
coaxial pipe (pipe within a pipe and having the same center) venting
system. It brings in fresh air for combustion through the outer pipe and
combustion gases are exhausted through the inner pipe. If the glass
door assembly and venting pipe are not properly seated, connected,
and sealed, carbon monoxide leakage (spillage) can occur.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: Early signs of carbon monoxide
poisoning resemble the flu, with headaches, dizziness, or nausea. If
you have these signs, the fireplace may not have been installed
properly. Get fresh air at once! Have fireplace inspected and
serviced by a qualified service person. 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.
Propane/LP and Natural Gas: Propane/LP and natural gases are
oderless. 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 fireplace.
WARNING: Any change to this fireplace or its
controls can be dangerous.
1.
This appliance is only for use with the type of gas indicated on
the rating plate. This appliance is not convertible for use with
other gases unless a certified kit is used.
2.
For a propane/LP fireplace, do not place propane/LP supply
tank(s) inside any structure. Locate propane/LP tank(s)
outdoors. To prevent performance problems, do not use propane/LP fuel tank of less than 100 lbs. capacity.
3.
If you smell gas:
• shut off gas supply
• do not try to light any appliance
• do not touch any electrical 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.
4.
Never install the fireplace
• in a recreational vehicle
• in windy or drafty areas where curtains or other combustible
(flammable) objects can make contact with the fireplace front

PRODUCT FEATURES
PRE-INSTALLATION PREPARATION
Location and Space Requirements
PRODUCT FEATURES
These are a few facts that can help you understand and enjoy your
direct-vent fireplace:
• The CD36R dedicated rear vent is best suited for flush or corner
installations when vented horizontally through an exterior wall.
• The CD36T dedicated top vent is suited for any application
where height is necessary to terminate the venting system either
through the roof (vertical) or to gain sufficient height and offset
to vent to an outside/exterior wall (horizontal).
• The vent pipe installation is very important to allow for proper
operation. You must select the appropriate unit for your application and follow the venting instructions to plan your installation.
• This fireplace may be installed in any room of your house provided
all local codes and these installation instructions are followed.
• Models (V)CD36R/T 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)CD36RE/TE 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.
• All models can accept an optional circulating air blower when
120 VAC connection is supplied. If you plan to install an optional
blower, do not forget to wire the fireplace outlet when framing.
• Each time you turn on your fireplace, you may notice some
amount of condensation on the inside of the fireplace glass. This
is normal and will disappear after 10-20 minutes of operation.
• 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 where stand-off spacers are integrally attached. If standoff spacers are attached to your fireplace, these spacers can be
placed directly against wall or framing material. See framing
details on page 5.
• 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 termination cap, it is important to observe the
minimum clearances shown in Figure 10, page 7.
• If recessed into a wall, you can avoid extra framing b positioning your fireplace against an already existing framing member.
• 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.
• There must not be any obstruction such as bushes, garden sheds,
fences, decks, or utility buildings within 24” from the front of
the termination cap.
• Do not locate termination cap where excessive snow or ice build
up may occur. Be sure to clear vent terminal area after snow
falls to prevent accidental blockage of venting system. When
using snow blowers, do not direct snow towards vent termination area.
• Your direct-vent gas fireplace system (fireplace and venting) is a
balanced and sealed gas operating unit. It is highly efficient
because it uses outside air for combustion while independantly
heating the indoor air.

VENTING INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Installation Planning
VENTING INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
NOTICE: Read these instructions completely before attempting installation.
These models are tested and approved for use with DESA (directvent) pipe components and terminations.
The venting system must terminate on the outside of the structure and
can not be attached to a chimney or flue system servicing a
solid fuel or gas burning appliance. A direct-vent appliance must have
its own venting system. DO NOT common vent this appliance.
These models are approved to be vented either horizontally through
an outside wall or vertically through a roof or chase enclosure
using the following:
• When venting system terminatates horizontally on an outside wall
you may install a standoff if the termination cap is to be installed directly on combustible finish such as vinyl, wood,
stucco, etc.
NOTICE: Failure to follow these instructions will void
the warranty.
INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS
• 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 your venting
system:
• Installation of any damaged venting component
• Unautorized modification of the venting system (Do not cut
or alter vent components)
• Never run the vent downward as this may cause excessive temperatures which could cause a fire.
• Installation of any component part not manufactured or approved by DESA.
• Vent pipe air space clearances to combustibles are 1” on all sides
except on the horizontal sections, which require 2” clearance
from the top of the pipe. Where the termination cap penetrates a
combustible wall, the use of a 2 piece wall firestop is required to
support the termination cap and maintain proper clearances.
• Installation other than as instructed by these instructions
• Have fireplace and selected vent components on hand to help
determine the exact measurements when elbowing or offsetting.
Always use wall firestops when penetrating walls and vertical
firestops when penetrating ceilings, floor joists or attic spaces.
• Install hoorizontal venting with a 1/4” rise for every 12” of run
towards the termination.
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: 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 apppliance. Each
direct-vent gas appliance must use a separate vent
system Do not use common vent systems.
WARNING: Vent pipe air space clearance to combustibles are 1” on all sides except on horizontal
sections, which require 2” clearance from the top of
the pipe. Where the termination cap penetrates a combustible wall 1”, air space clearance in required.
IMPORTANT: Do not seal vent cap to pipe. Cap must be removable
for servicing.

INSTALLATION PLANNING
There are two basic types of direct-vent installations:
Female
Locking Lugs
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
Horizontal Termination Installation
IMPORTANT: Horizontal square terminations require only inner
portion of wall firestop. Horizontal installation using round termination require exterior portion of wall firestop (see Figure 18, page 11).
1.
2.
Set the fireplace in its desired location and determine the route
your horizontal venting will take. Do not secure the fireplace
until all venting has been installed. Some installations require
sliding the fireplace in and out of position to make final venting
connections. Figures 19 through 25 on pages11 through 13 show
different configurations for venting with horizontal termination that will help you decide which application best suits your
installation. Check to see if wall studs or roof rafters are in the
path of your desired venting route. If they are, you may want
to adjust the location of the fireplace.
Direct vent pipe sections and components are designed with
special twist-lock connections.
Twist-Lock Procedure: The female ends of the pipes have
locking lugs (indentations). These lugs will slide straight into
matching slots on the male ends of adjacent pipes. Push pipe
sections together and twist one section clockwise approximately
one-quarter turn until the sections are fully locked (see Figure
11). Note: Horizontal runs of vent must be supported every three
feet. Use wall strap for this purpose.
3.
Any straight pipe section, a 45°, or a 90° elbow can be used
when first connecting the venting system to the fireplace. Elbows
are designed to twist lock into any of four 90° positions to direct
the venting system to the desired location.

4.
Assemble the desired combination of pipe and elbows to the
fireplace flue collar. If there are long portions of venting run,
pipe sections may be pre-assembled and installed for convenience.
5.
Carefully determine the location where the vent pipe assembly
will penetrate the outside wall. The center of the hole should line
up with the center-line of the horizontal vent pipe. Mark the wall
for a 10 ¾” x10 ¾” square hole. Cut and frame the square hole
in the exterior wall where the vent will be terminated. If the wall
being penetrated is constructed of noncombustible material, such
as masonry block of concrete , a 8 ½” hole with zero clearance is
acceptable (see Figure 12).
WARNING: Do not recess vent termination into
any wall. This will cause a fire hazard.

cap in the center of the 8 ½” round hole and attach to the exterior wall with four wood screws provided. Before attaching
the vent cap to exterior wall, run a bead of non-hardening mastic
(pliable sealant) around the outside edges to make a seal between it and the outside wall. Note: The four wood screws
provided should be replaced with appropriate fasteners for
stucco, brick, concrete, or other types of sidings. (See Figure 13).
Combustible Exterior Wall: For vinyl siding, stucco or wood
exteriors, a siding standoff may be installed between the vent
cap and exterior wall. The siding standoff prevents excessive
heat from damaging the siding materials. Siding material must
be cut to accommodate standoff. Bolt the vent cap to the standoff. Apply non-hardening mastic around outside edge of standoff. Position the standoff/cap assembly in the center of the
10 ¾ square hole and attach to exterior wall with wood
screws provided (see Figure 14). The siding standoff must sit
flush against the exterior fascia material.
7.
Combustible Exterior Wall Only: Fit the outer and inner wall
firestop into the wall before connecting horizontal run to vent
cap (see Figure 15).
8.
Carefully move fireplace, with vent assembly attached, toward
wall and insert vent pipe into horizontal termination. The pipe
overlap should be a minimum of 1 ¼”.

2.
Assemble the desired lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to
reach from the fireplace flue up through the firestop. Be sure
all pipe and elbow connections are fully twist-locked (see Figure 11, page 9).
3.
Cut a hole in the roof using the locating hole as a center point.
(Cover any exposed open vent pipes before cutting hole in roof.)
The 10 ¾” x 10 ¾” hole must be measured on the horizontal;
actual length may be larger dependiong on the pitch of the roof.
There must be a 1” clearance from the vent pipe to combustible
materials. Frame the opening as shown in Figure 12, page 9.
4.
Connect a section of pipe and extend up through the hole.
Note: Vertical restrictor must be installed in all vertical installations.
1.
2.
Determine the route your vertical venting will take. If ceiling
Joists, roof rafters, or other framing will obstruct the venting
system, consider an offset (see Figure 26) to avoid cutting load
bearing members. NOTE: Pay special attention to these installation instructions for required clearances (air space) to combustibles when passing through ceilings, walls roofs, enclosures, attic rafters, etc. Do not pack air spaces with insulation.
Also note maximum horizontal offset limitations.
Note: If an offset is needed to avoid obstructions, you must
support the vent pipe every 3 feet. Use wall straps for this
purpose (see Figure 26). Whenever possible, use 45º elbows
instead of 90º elbows. The 45º elbow offers less restriction to
the flow of the flue gases and intake air.
Set fireplace in desired location. Drop a plumb line down
from the ceiling to the position of the fireplace exit flue. Mark
the center point where the vent will penetrate the ceiling. Drill
a small locating hole at this point.
Drop a plumb line from the inside of the roof to the locating
hole in the ceiling. Mark the center point where the vent will
penetrate the roof. Drill a small locating hole at this point.
Roof Flashing
5.
Place the flashing over the pipe section(s) extending through
the roof. Secure the base of the flashing to the roof and framing with roofing nails. Be sure roofing material overlaps the
top edge of the flashing as shown in Figure 26. There must be
a 1” clearnace from the vent pipe to combustible materials
6.
Continue to add pipe section until the height of the vent cap
meets the minimum building code requirements described in
Figure 10 on page 7. Note: You must increase vent height for
steep roof pitches. Nearby trees, adjoining rooflines, steep
pitched roofs, and other similar factors may cause poor draft
or down-drafting in high winds. Increasing the vent height may
solve this problem.
7.
Twist-lock the vent cap onto the kast section of vent pipe.
Wall Strap
Note: If the vent pipe passes through any occupied areas above the
first floor, including storage spaces and closets, you must enclose
pipe. You may frame and sheetrock the enclosure with standard
construction material. Make sure and meet the minimum allowable
clearances to combustibles. Do not fill any of the required air spaces
with insulation.

Figure 26 - Offset with Wall Strap and 45° Elbows
Flat Ceiling Installation
1.
Cut a 10 ¾” square hole in the ceiling using the locating hole as
a center point. The opening should be framed to 10 ¾” x 10 ¾”
(273 mm x 273 mm) inside dimensions, as shown in Figure 12
on page 9 using framing lumber the same size as the ceiling
joists. If the area above the ceiling is an insulated ceiling or a
room, nail firestop from the top side. This prevents loose insulation from falling into the required clearance space. Otherwise,
install firestop below the framed hole. The firestop should be
installed with no less than three nails per side (see Figure 27).

When installing this fireplace in the USA at an elevation above
2000 feet (610 m), you may need to decrease the input rating
by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Reduce
input 4% for each 1000 feet (305 m) above sea level. Check with
your local gas company for proper derate procedure and orifice size.
When installing this fireplace in Canada at an elevation above
4500 feet (1372 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’s
Customer Service Department at 1-866-672-6040.

•
piping (check local codes)
•
sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
•
equipment shutoff valve *
•

•
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 fromyour retailer.
For propane/LP connection only, the installer must supply an external
regulator. You must reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11 and
14 inches of water column. If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure,
fireplace regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator
with the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 47, page 21.
Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
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”
inside 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 48).
IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shutoff valve) in
an accessible lcation. The main gas valve is for turning on or
shutting off the gas to the appliance.

OPERATING OPTIONAL
BLOWER ACCESSORY
Ignitor
Blower control is located on the ignitor bracket to the right of
the gas control behind the lower louver panel.
The BK manual blower and the BKT thermostatically controlled blower have a control knob to turn on the blower and
adjust the fan speed. Rotating the knob approximately 1/4 turn
will switch the blower ON in the high position. Turning the
knob further will reduce the blower speed to the lowest position.
To turn the blower off, rotate the knob back until it clicks off.
Note for BKT Only: If you are using a BKT blower, the blower
will not turn on until the fireplace has been burning for several
minutes and is sufficeintly heating. The blower control works
independent of the gas control, wall mounted switch or remote
control s. For the BKT blower to operate automatically the speed
control knob must be left in the on position prior to turning
on the fireplace either manually or remotely.
The blower helps distribute heated air from the fireplace.
Periodically check the louver of the fireplace and remove any
dust, dirt or other obstructions that will hinder the flow of air.
Figure 65 - Pilot Assembly (Electronic Ignition System)
BURNER FLAME PATTERN
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.
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 66 shows a typical flame pattern.
If burner flame pattern differs from that described:
• turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 26 or 27)
• see Troubleshooting, pages 31 through 35
INSPECTING BURNERS
Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame patterns often.
PILOT ASSEMBLY
The pilot assembly is factory preset for the proper flame height
Alterations may have occurred during shipping and handling. Call
a qualified service person to readjust the pilot if necessary.

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: 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 househol 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 23 of this
manual when removing glass door for cleaning.
Use only the tempered glass door replacement intended for this
fireplace (see Replacement Parts, page ## for detail on ordering).
No substitutions may be made. See Removing/Replacing Glass
Door, on page 24 for instructions for replaceing glass door.
WARNING: Do not operate fireplace with glass
door removed, cracked, or broken.
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 25, 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 36.
•
Replace ember material periodically as needed. See Replacement Parts on page 36.
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.
WARNING: Only parts supplied by the manufacturer should be used when replacing broken or damaged glass door panel (see Replacement Parts, page
##). This glass door panel is a complete unit. No
substitute materials may be used.
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.
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.
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.
If glass has been broken, carefully remove glass door (see Removing/Replaceing Glass Door, page 24). Vacuum all glass pieces with
a shop vac.
