PRODUCT FEATURES
OPERATION
This heater is clean burning. It requires no outside venting. There is no heat
loss out a vent or up a chimeney. Heat is generated by both realistic flames
and glowing coals. 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. This heater may also be operated as a vented decorative (ANSI Z21.60) product by opening the flue damper (Non-Thermosta
models only).
SAFETY DEVICE
This heater has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensing (ODS) safety shut
off system. The ODS/pilot is a required feature for vent-free 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.
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND
VENTILATION
WARNING: This heater shall not be installed in 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 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.

AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
Providing Adequate Ventilation (Cont.)
Determining Fresh-Air Flow for Appliance Location
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND
VENTILATION
Continued
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where:
A.Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a con
tinuous water vapor retarder with a rating of one perm (6 x 10-11 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.
If your home meets all of the three criteria above, you must provide ad
ditional fresh air. See Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 5.
If your home does not meet all of the three criteria above, proceed to
Determining Fresh-Air Flow For Appliance Location, below.
Confined 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

2.Multiply the space volume by 20 to determine the maximum Btu/Hr the
space can support.
____________(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.Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.

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)
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.
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only if there are odorless passageways
or ventilation grills between them.
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 odorless 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.
Example:
51,200 Btu/Hr (maximum the space can support)
73,000 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 appliance, if lower Btu/Hr size makes room unconfined.
If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can sup
port, 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, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 Section 5.3
or applicable local codes.

INSTALLING DAMPER CLAMP ACCESSORY
FOR VENTED OPERATION
INSTALLING HEATER ASSEMBLY
Note: When used as a vented decorative, appliance must be installed only
in a solid-fuel burning fireplace with a working flue and constructed of noncombustible material.
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. Raise fireplace
floor with non-combustible material. Make sure material is secure.
If your heater is a non-thermostatically-controlled model, you may use this
heater as a vented product. There are three reasons for operating your
heater in the vented mode.
CAUTION: Do not pick up heater assembly by logs. This could damage unit. Only handle assembly by grates.
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.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the heater burners are level. If heater is not level,
heater will not work properly.
Installation Items Needed
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 27). 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.
•
control cover kit (provided with heater)
•
approved flexible gas hose and fittings (provided with heater) (if allowed
by local codes)
•
sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas, not provided)
Note: Install optional GHRCTA Receiver and Hand-Held Remote Control Kit
(see Accessories, page 27) before installing gas log heater (Remote-Ready
Models Only). See installation instructions included with the kit.
1.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male threads of gas fitting (not provided). Connect approved flexible gas hose to inlet side of gas control
(see Figure 11).
2.

CONNECTING TO GAS SUPPLY
Continued
WARNING: This appliance requires a 3/8" NPT (National Pipe
Thread) inlet connection to the pressure regulator.
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 heater (see Figure 13 page 12, depending on
your model).
WARNING: A qualified service person must connect heater to gas
supply. Follow all local codes.
IMPORTANT: Install equipment shutoff valve in an accessible location. The
equipment shutoff valve is for turning on or shutting off the gas to the appliance.
CAUTION: Never connect propane/LP fireplace directly to the
propane/LP supply. This heater requires an external regulator (not supplied). Install the external regulator between the heater and propane/LP
supply.
WARNING: Never connect natural gas fireplace to private (nonutility) 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
•
approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if allowed by local codes)
(provided)
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.
WARNING: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
We recommend that you install a sediment trap in supply line as shown in
Figure 13 page 12, depending on your model. 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.
CAUTION: Avoid damage to gas control. Hold gas control with
wrench when connecting it to gas piping and/or fittings.
* 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 27.
Propane/LP
Supply Tank
External Regulator
For propane/LP units, 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 12. 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" diameter or greater to allow proper gas volume to
heater. If pipe is too small, undue loss of volume will occur.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Cleaning Burner Injector Holder and Pilot Air Inlet Hole
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Turn off heater and let cool before cleaning.
WARNING: Failure to keep the primary air openings of the burner clean
may result in sooting and property damage.
CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burners, 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, pet hair, bedding material, etc.
CLEANING BURNER INJECTOR HOLDER
AND PILOT AIR INLET HOLE
The primary air inlet opening allow the proper amount of air to mix with the
gas. This provides a clean burning flame. Keep these holes clear of dust, dirt,
lint, and pet hair. Clean these air inlet opening prior to each heating season.
Blocked air opening will create soot. We recommend that you clean the unit
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 opening on injector holder for
dust and dirt (see Figure 26).
3.
Blow air through the ports/slots and holes in the burner.
4.
Check the injector holder located at the end of the burner tube again.
Remove any large particles of dust, dirt, lint, or pet hair with a soft cloth
or vacuum cleaner nozzle.
5.
Blow air into the primary air opening on the injector holder.
6.
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
27). 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.

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 four (4) years and five (5) years on stainless steel
burners 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 FOUR (4) YEARS ON ALL COMPONENTS
AND FIVE (5) YEARS ON STAINLESS STEEL BURNERS 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.
