SAFETY INFORMATION
WARNINGS
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.
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.

3.
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.
4.
5.
6.
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.
For propane/LP fireplace, do not place propane/LP supply
tank(s) inside any structure. Locate propane/LP supply tank(s)
outdoors. To prevent performance problems, do not use propane/LP fuel tank of less than 100 lbs. capacity.
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 you gas supplier, call the fire department.
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
• in high traffic areas
This fireplace reaches high temperatures. Keep children and
adults away from hot surfaces to avoid burns or clothing ignition. Fireplace will remain hot for a time after shutdown. Allow surfaces to cool before touching.

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 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.
• This fireplace does not require electricity to operate.
• Only 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.
• A piezo ignitor and ceramic electrode create 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
10-20 minutes of operating time before the flame pattern stabilizes.
PRE-INSTALLATION
PREPARATION
• 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 450ºF (232ºC) 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.
LOCATION AND SPACE REQUIREMENTS
Determine the safest and most efficient location for your DESA
International 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.

VENTING INSTALLATION
INSTRUCTIONS
NOTICE: Read these instructions completely before attempting installation.
These models are tested and approved for use with DESA International (direct-vent) 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.
• Install horizontal venting with a 1/4" rise for every 12" of run
toward the termination.
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
• Unauthorized modification of the venting system (Do not cut
or alter vent components)
• Installation of any component part not manufactured or approved by DESA International
• 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
direct-vent 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.
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.

INSTALLATION PLANNING
There are two basic types of direct-vent installation:
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
Female Locking Lugs
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 01491 for V and VV Series or SDHTRK-58 for CHDV Series
(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 through
12 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.
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 flue collar. 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 3/4" x 10 3/4" 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 8 1/2" hole with zero clearance is
acceptable (see Figure 9).

Cut Siding Away
to Fit Standoff
Noncombustible Exterior Wall: Position the horizontal vent
cap in the center of the 8 1/2" 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
3
/4" square hole and attach to exterior wall with wood screws
provided (see Figure 11). The siding standoff must sit flush
against the exterior fascia material.
Slide the wall firestop over the vent pipe before connecting
horizontal run to vent cap (see Figure 12).
Carefully move fireplace, with vent assembly attached, toward
wall and insert vent pipe into horizontal termination. The pipe
overlap should be a minimum of 11/4".

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.

45° Elbow
Ceiling Firestop
Figure 19 - Offset with Wall Strap and 45° Elbows
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 3/4"x10 3/4" 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 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 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 a room, install
firestop above framed hole.
Flat Ceiling Installation
1.
Cut a 10 3/4" square hole in the ceiling using the locating hole as
a center point. The opening should be framed to 10 3/4"x10 3/4"
(273mm x 273mm) 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 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 20).

Model BKT Installation
Note: When installing the BKT thermostatically-controlled blower,
you must first secure the thermal switch bracket to the blower if it
has not already been factory installed.
1. Place the green ground wire with ring terminal between the
bottom hole on the thermal switch bracket and the top ear hole
on the blower assembly. Insert the phillips screw into all three
pieces and tighten securely (see Figure 28).
2. Connect wire harness and power cord terminals. Connect the
blue jumper wire to the blower motor terminal and the right
side terminal of the thermal switch. Connect the black wire to
the left side of the thermal switch and the white wire to the
other remaining blower motor terminal.
Note: The power cord outer insulation sleeve may have to be
stripped slightly to allow enough wire length to reach and make all
connections. DO NOT trim excessive length away. Just enable
enough to make all connections securely.
3. Place the blower against the lower rear wall of the firebox outer
wrapper with the exhaust port directed upward and the thermodisc
positioned up near the fireplace bottom. The thermodisc must be
oriented near the fireplace bottom as shown in Figure 28 in order
to sense temperature and properly operate. The blower will be
held in position against the back wall by the magnets incorporated onto the blower housing (see Figure 28).
4.
Be certain that all wire terminals are securely attached to terminals on blower motor and thermal switch, and that the screw
for the thermodisc bracket and green ground wire is tight.
5. Mount the speed control box against the mounting plate provided in the lower fireplace cavity by placing the plastic control
shaft forward through the round hole (see Figure 26, page 17).
6. While supporting speed control, secure control shaft with lock
nut by pushing and turning lock nut with pliers clockwise until it is tight against mounting plate. Place control knob provided on shaft (see Figure 26, page 17).
7. Check to make sure that the power cord is completely clear of the
blower wheel and that there are no other foreign objects in blower
wheel. Also double check all wire leads and make sure wire routing is not pinched or in a precarious position. Correct accordingly.
8. Turn on power to duplex outlet if previously turned off per the
warning in column 1, page 17.
9. Plug in blower power cord to duplex outlet.
10. The blower will only run when the speed control knob is in the
ON position and the thermal switch senses temperature after the
fireplace begins to heat up. The blower speed can be adjusted by
rotating the control knob. To turn off, turn knob fully counterclockwise until it clicks off. If the blower is ON and has been
running with the fireplace operating, the blower will continue to
run for a short time after the fireplace has been turned off. As the
thermal switch cools down, the blower shuts down automatically.
11. Peel off the backing paper and stick the supplied wiring diagram decal on the firebox bottom approximately 12" in front
of the blower (see Figure 27).

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 inches 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.

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.
• 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)

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 pressure 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,
page 20).
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 threads. This will prevent
excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could
result in clogged fireplace valves.
CAUTION: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant
to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
* 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 from your retailer.

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.

Upon installation, the thermostat must be allowed to stabilize at
room temperature for a minimum of 30 minutes for proper
operation.
To turn the fireplace off, adjust thermostat to the lowest setting
and turn the gas control knob back to PILOT. The pilot will
remain lit.
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.
The height of the thermopile must be 3/8" to 1/2" above the pilot
flame as shown in Figure 55. The thermocouple must be at a height
of about 1/8" above the pilot flame. The flame from the pilot burner
must extend beyond both the thermocouple and thermopile.
If you pilot assembly does not meet these requirements:
• turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 26)
• see Troubleshooting, pages 30 through 32

BURNER FLAME PATTERN
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.
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.
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.
Figure 56 shows a typical flame pattern for (V)V36 and (V)V42
series models.
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.
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.
If burner flame pattern differs from that described:
• turn fireplace off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 26)
• see Troubleshooting, pages 30 through 32

CLEANING AND
MAINTENANCE
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, page 23 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
33). 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/Replacing Glass Door, page 23). Vacuum all glass pieces with
a shop vac.
CAUTION: Do not vacuum if pieces are hot.
Use only the tempered glass door replacement intended for this
fireplace (see Replacement Parts, page 33 for detail on ordering).
No substitutions may be made. See Removing/Replacing Glass
Door, page 23 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, pages 24 and 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 33.
• Replace ember material periodically as needed. See Replacement Parts on page 33.
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.

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
DIRECT-VENT FIREPLACE
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
retailers 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.
