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 gas and natural gas are both odorless. An odor-making
agent is added to each of these gases. The odor helps you detect
a gas leak. However, the odor added to these gases 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.

Product Features
These are a few facts that can help you understand and enjoy your
direct-vent fireplace:
• The venting system may be routed to the outside of your home
in several ways. It may vent through the roof (vertical) or it may
vent to an outside/exterior wall (horizontal). The vent pipe installation is very important to allow for proper operation. You must
follow the venting instructions very carefully for either vertical
or horizontal applications.
• This fireplace may be installed in any room of your house
provided all local codes and these installation instructions are
followed.
• The blower requires electricity if installed and if you plan to
install the blower at a later date, do not forget to wire the outlet
at the bottom of the fireplace when framing.
• The electronic ignition creates spark to ignite the pilot light. It
does not require any matches, batteries or any other sources of
ignition to light the pilot.
• 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 direct-vent gas fireplace system (fireplace and venting) is a
balanced and sealed gas operating unit. It requires approximately 1020 minutes of operating time before the flame pattern stabilizes.

Location and space requirements
Flush with a wall
Determine the safest and most efficient location for your DESA
direct-vent fireplace. Make sure that rafters and wall studs are not
in the way of the venting system. Choose a location where the heat
output is not affected by drafts, air conditioning ducts, windows
or doors. Figure 2 shows some common locations. Be aware of all
restrictions and precautions before deciding the exact location for
your fireplace and termination cap.
When deciding the location of your fireplace, follow these rules:
• Do not connect this fireplace venting to a chimney flue serving
a separate solid-fuel burning fireplace or appliance.
• Due to high temperatures, do not locate this fireplace in high traffic areas, windy or drafty areas, or near furniture or draperies.
• Proper clearances must be maintained.
• If your fireplace is to be installed directly on carpeting, vinyl tile,
or any combustible material other than wood, it must be installed
on a metal or wood panel extending the full width and depth of
the fireplace. See Figure 3.
• 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 standoff 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 top of louver opening.
• When locating termination cap, it is important to observe the
minimum clearances shown in Figure 7, page 6.
• If recessing into a wall, you can avoid extra framing by 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 450º F (232º 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 termination area after snow falls to
prevent accidental blockage of venting system. When using snow
blowers, do not direct snow towards vent termination area.

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 serving a
separate 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 guidelines:
• When venting system terminates horizontally on an outside
wall, you must install a standoff if the termination cap is to be
installed directly on a combustible finish such as vinyl, wood,
stucco, etc.
• Never run the vent downward as this may cause excessive temperatures which could cause a fire.
• Vent pipe air space clearances to combustibles are 1" on all sides
except on the horizontal sections, which requires 2" clearance
from the top of the pipe. Where the termination cap penetrates
a combustible wall, 1" air space clearance is required.
• Snorkel terminations are required when minimum clearance to
grade cannot be met (see Figure 16 on page 11).
• 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 firestops
when penetrating ceilings or attic spaces.
• If using a venting configuration of only horizontal venting with
no vertical run, a 1/4" rise for every 12" of run toward the termination is required.
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.
NOTICE: Failure to follow these instructions will void
the warranty.
108860-01D
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
• Unauthorized 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: 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. Each directvent gas appliance must use a separate vent system.
Do not use common vent systems.
WARNING: Vent pipe air space clearances to combustibles are 1" on all sides except on the horizontal
sections, which require 2" clearances from the top of
the pipe. Where the termination cap penetrates a combustible wall, 1" air space clearance is required.
INSTALLATION PLANNING
There are two basic types of direct-vent installation:
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
Horizontal Termination Installation
IMPORTANT: Horizontal square terminations require only inner
portion of wall firestop. Horizontal installations using round termination require exterior portion of wall firestop available only in
vent kit HTK (see Figure 14, page 10).
1. 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 14 through 18 on pages 10 and 11 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.

instructions
Female
Locking Lugs
Continued
2. 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 8). Note: Horizontal runs of vent must be supported
every three feet. Use wall straps for this purpose.
3. Use a 45° elbow to connect venting system to fireplace flue
collar. The elbow is designed to be twist-locked onto the flue
collar as described in step 2. IMPORTANT: Do not attempt
to alter the configuration of the elbow by cutting, twisting,
bending, etc.
4. Assemble the desired combination of pipe and elbows to the
fireplace. If there are long portions of venting run, pre-assembled pipe sections may be installed as subassemblies 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" x 10" 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 or concrete, a 7 3/4" hole with
zero clearance is acceptable (see Figure 9).

6. Noncombustible Exterior Wall: Position the horizontal vent
cap in the center of the 7 3/4" 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.
Combustible Exterior Wall: For vinyl siding, stucco, or wood
exteriors, a siding standoff must 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" square hole and attach to exterior wall with wood screws
provided (see Figure 11, page 9). The siding standoff must sit
flush against the exterior fascia material.

installation for vertical termination
Note: Vertical restrictor must be installed in all vertical installations.
1. 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 19) 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 vertical rise of the venting system
and any maximum horizontal offset limitations.
2. Set the 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.

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
8, page 8).
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" x 10" hole must be measured on the horizontal;
actual length may be larger depending 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 9, page 8.
4. Connect a section of pipe and extend up through the hole.
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 19). Whenever possible, use 45° elbows
instead of 90° elbows. The 45° elbow offers less restriction to
the flow of the flue gases and intake air.
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 19. There must be a
1" clearance from the vent pipe to combustible materials.
6. Continue to add pipe sections until the height of the vent cap
meets the minimum building code requirements described in
Figure 7 on page 6. Note: You must increase vent height for
steep roof pitches. Nearby trees, adjoining roof lines, 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 last section of vent pipe.
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.
If area above is an attic
space or insulated area,
install firestop above
framed hole.
Flat Ceiling Installation
1. Cut a 10" square hole in the ceiling using the locating hole
as a center point. The opening should be framed to 10"x10"
(254 mm x 254 mm) inside dimensions, as shown in Figure 9
on page 8 using framing lumber the same size as the ceiling
joists. If the area above the ceiling is an insulated ceiling or an
attic space, nail firestop from the top side. This prevents loose
insulation from falling into the required clearance space. If the
area above the ceiling is a living space, install firestop below
the framed hole. The firestop should be installed with no less
than three nails per side (see Figure 20).

If area above is a living
space, install firestop
below framed hole.

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.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•

Continued
For propane/LP connection only, 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" of water. 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 30. Pointing the
vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
Approved Flexible
Gas Line
3" Minimum
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 31).
IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (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.
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 31. 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.

Inspecting Burners
Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame patterns often.
pilot assembly
Locate the blower controls by opening the lower louver panel
on the fireplace. Blower controls are located on the left side of
the switch bracket to the left just inside the louver panel.
The BK manual blower and the BKT thermostatically-controlled
blower have an ON setting and an OFF setting. The blower
will only run when the switch is in the ON position. In the OFF
position, the blower will not operate.
Note for BKT Only: If you are using BKT blower with optional
thermostat (wall mounted or remote control) for the fireplace,
your fireplace and blower will not turn on and off at the same
time. The fireplace may run for several minutes before the blower
turns on. After the heater modulates to the pilot position, the
blower will continue to run. The blower will shut off after the
firebox temperature decreases.
The blower helps distribute heated air from the fireplace. Periodically check the louvers of the firebox and remove any dust,
dirt, or other obstructions that will hinder the flow of air.
The pilot assembly is factory preset for the proper flame. Alterations may have occurred during shipping and handling. The pilot
is located on the back right hand side of the burner.
The flame must envelope 1/4" of top of the ignitor/sensor and
grounding stem.
If your pilot assembly does not meet these requirements:
• Turn the adjustment screw marked PILOT clockwise to decrease
or counterclockwise to increase the flame to proper size (see
Figure 48, page 23). Do not remove the adjustment screw.
• see Troubleshooting, page 26

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 51 shows a typical flame pattern.
If burner flame pattern differs from that described:
• turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 23)

Cleaning and
Maintenance
CAUTION: Do not vacuum if pieces are hot.
WARNING: Turn off fireplace and let cool before
cleaning.
CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burners, and
circulating air passageways 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 material, 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 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
19 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 28).
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.
Use only the tempered glass door replacement intended for this
fireplace (see Replacement Parts, page 28 for detail on ordering).
No substitutions may be made. See Removing/Replacing Glass
Door, page 19 for instructions for replacing glass door.
WARNING: Do not operate fireplace with the glass
door removed, cracked, or broken.
pilot and burners
• Remove ember material before cleaning burners and replace
when cleaning is complete.
• 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, Lava
Rock, and Glowing Embers, page 20, 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 28.
• Replace ember material periodically as needed. See Replacement
Parts on page 28.
Venting system
Conduct annual inspection of the venting system following these
guidelines:
1. Check areas of venting system that are exposed to the weather
for 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 the 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
disturbed and loosened. Check mechanical supports such as
wall straps for rigidity.
If glass has been broken, carefully remove glass door (see Removing/Replacing Glass Door, page 19). Vacuum all glass pieces with
a shop vac.

Warranty Information
KEEP THIS WARRANT
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
DIRECT-VENT FIREPLACE
DESA 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 retailers of this product and/or DESA 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’S LIABILITY IS HEREBY LIMITED
TO THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT AND DESA 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.
