R-3450
SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP-GAS
Propane (LP-Gas) is a flammable gas which can cause fires
and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and
colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions which can protect both you and your family from an
accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point
by point with the members of your household. Someday
when there may not be a minute to lose, everyone's safety will
depend on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the
following information, you feel you still need more information, please contact your gas supplier.
LP-GAS WARNING ODOR
If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.
That's your signal to go into immediate action!
•
Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your
phone. Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.
•
Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do
that IMMEDIATELY.
•
Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.
•
LP-Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas such
as basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak,
keep out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until
firefighters declare them to be safe.
•
Use your neighbor's phone and call a trained LP-Gas service
person and the fire department. Even though you may not
continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do not reenter the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
•
Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for
escaped gas. Have them air out the area before you return.
Properly trained LP-Gas service people should repair the
leak, then check and relight the gas appliance for you.
NO ODOR DETECTED - ODOR FADE
Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the
odor of the chemical stench put into the gas. You must find
out if you can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can
decrease your ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time
can affect your sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors in the area mask the gas odor. People may not
smell the gas odor or their minds are on something else. Thinking
about smelling a gas odor can make it easier to smell.
The odorant in LP-gas is colorless, and it can fade under
some circumstances. For example, if there is an underground
leak, the movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant.
Odorants in LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading can
occur if there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into
walls, masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That
will take some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor
intensity.
LP-Gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could
vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be
more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest
gas odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak.
Immediately go into action as instructed earlier.
SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER
• Learn to recognize the odor of LP-gas. Your local LP-Gas
Dealer can give you a "Scratch and Sniff" pamphlet. Use it to
find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that
your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LP-Gas
Dealer.
• If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform
service, or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gas
system. If you are qualified, consciously think about the odor
of LP-Gas prior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service or making adjustments.
• Sometimes a basement or a closed-up house has a musty
smell that can cover up the LP-Gas odor. Do not try to light
pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area
where the conditions are such that you may not detect the
odor if there has been a leak of LP-Gas.
• Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of
new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people
should be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or
cylinders are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new
tanks, or reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed
R-3450
to set too long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which
have been out of service for a time may develop internal rust
which will cause odor fade. If such conditions are suspected
to exist, a periodic sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you
have any question about the gas odor, call your LP-gas
dealer. A periodic sniff test of the LP-gas is a good safety
measure under any condition.
• If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gas odorant and you
think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the same
immediate action recommended above for the occasion when
you do detect the odorized LP-Gas.
• If you experience a complete "gas out," (the container is
under no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately. If the container valve is left on, the container may draw
in some air through openings such as pilot light orifices. If
this occurs, some new internal rusting could occur. If the
valve is left open, then treat the container as a new tank.
Always be sure your container is under vapor pressure by
turning it off at the container before it goes completely empty
or having it refilled before it is completely empty.

Venting
1. Flue pipe must be as large as the flue collar on the draft diverter.
2. Maintain an upward slope of at least 1/4 inch (6mm) per foot of
horizontal run.
3. Run flue pipe as directly as possible with a minimum of elbows.
4. Flue pipe should extend through the wall of a chimney to be flush
with inner wall.
5. Flue pipe must be adequately supported by metal straps.
6. Single wall vent pipe may be attached directly to the draft hood of
the fireplace heater when a clearance of 2 1/2 inches (64mm) is
maintained between the single wall vent pipe and the combustible
wall of the room in which the fireplace heater is located. Use double
wall vent pipe for clearances less than 2 1/2 inches (64mm) to
combustibles.
7. For flue pipe running through walls and roof, use B-1 [1 inch (25mm)
clearance to combustibles] vent pipe.
8. Chimneys should extend at least 2 feet (.6m) above the roof and
above any object or nearby building within 10 feet (3m).
9. Open tees should not be used in the flue pipe.
10. Appliance must not be connected to a chimney flue that is servicing
a separate solid-fuel burning appliance.
For proper venting, do not attach a 90° elbow directly to draft diverter. If
possible, attach 2 feet (.6m) of straight vent pipe before an elbow is used.
Use of 45° elbows is recommended.
Uninsulated single-wall metal pipe shall not be used outdoors in cold
climates for venting gas utilization equipment.
Ventilation and Combustion Air
Fireplace heaters shall be installed in a location in which the facilities for
ventilation permit satisfactory combustion of gas and proper venting
under normal conditions. In buildings of conventional frame, brick or
stone construction without tight storm windows and doors, infiltration is
normally adequate to provide for combustion and draft hood dilution.
Where appliances are installed in a confined space within a building, the
building being of unusually tight construction, air for combustion and
ventilation must be obtained directly from outdoors or from such spaces
that freely communicate with the outdoors. Under these conditions, the
confined space shall be provided with two permanent openings, one near
the top of the enclosure and one near the bottom; each opening shall have
a free area of not less than one square inch (6.5cm2) per 1,000 BTU's
(.3KW) of total input. The draft hood must be in the same atmospheric
pressure zone as the combustion air inlet to the appliance and shall be so
located so that the relief opening is accessible for checking vent operation.

A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of the unit.
Where none exists, or where its size or location is not adequate, contact
your local authorized installer for installation or relocation.
Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant to the
action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be checked for
leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap solution, watching
for bubbles on all exposed connections and, if unexposed, a pressure test
should be made.
Never Use an Exposed Flame to Check for Leaks.
Appliance must be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve
and pipe capped or plugged for pressure test. Never Pressure Test
With Appliance Connected; Control Valve Will Sustain Damage!
A gas valve and ground joint union should be installed in the gas line
upstream of the gas control to aid in servicing. It is required by the
National Fuel Gas Code that a drip line be installed near the gas inlet.
This should consist of a vertical length of pipe, tee connected into the gas
line, that is capped on the bottom in which condensation and foreign
particles may collect.

Pressure Testing of the Gas Supply System
1. To check the inlet pressure to the gas valve, a 1/8" (3mm) N.P.T.
plugged tapping, accessible for the test gauge connection, must be
placed immediately upstream of the gas supply connection to the
appliance.
2. The appliance, and its individual shutoff valve, must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that
system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
3. The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by
closing its individual manual shutoff valve during any pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less
than 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
Attention! If one of the above procedures results in pressures in excess
of 1/2 psig (14" w.c.) (3.5kPa) on the appliance gas valve, it will result in
a hazardous condition.
Checking Manifold Pressure
Both Propane and Natural gas valves have a built-in pressure regulator in
the gas valve. Natural gas models will have a manifold pressure of
approximately 3.5" w.c. (.871kPa) for maximum input or 1.7" w.c.
(.423kPa) for minimum input at the valve outlet with the inlet pressure to
the valve from a minimum of 5.0" w.c. (1.245kPa) for the purpose of input
adjustment to a maximum of 10.5"w.c. (2.615kPa). Propane gas models
will have a manifold pressure approximately 10.0"w.c. (2.49kPa) for
maximum input or 5.9" w.c. (1.469kPa) for minimum input at the valve
outlet with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 11.0" w.c.
(2.739kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of 13.0"
w.c. (3.237kPa).
A 1/8" (3mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connection
is located on the outlet side of the gas control.
Liner and Insulated Liner
When you install a vented fireplace heater into a masonry chimney you
must follow these steps.
1. The chimney must be lined and sized properly. Most masonry
chimneys are over sized and absorb too much heat to be considered a
proper vent. If you have any doubts line the chimney with the right
size liner. If it's unlined you must line it.
2. Use an insulated liner when the chimney is on the outside, three sides
exposed to the weather, and there is no clay liner in the chimney. The
insulation will help keep the flue gases warmer.
Page 9
Insulated Vent Enclosure (Figure 12)
Vented fireplace heaters installed with the vent going directly to the
outside and above the eaves can cause poor venting. The cold pipe will
have a delay in proper venting and cause the fireplace heater to shut "off"
by the vent safety switch. To prevent delayed venting as well as
condensation of flue products an insulated enclosure is recommended.
Use type B 4" (102mm) diameter vent pipe and maintain at least a one inch
(25mm) clearance to combustibles.
Use metal thimble to protect vent pipe as it passes through combustibles.

Piezo Ignitor Button
The piezo ignitor button is located behind the valve cover. Depressing the
button causes a spark to occur at the pilot.
On a new installation with air in the gas line, depress the piezo ignitor
button a number of times in order to ignite the pilot.
Vent Safety Shutoff System
This heater must be properly connected to a venting system. This heater
is equipped with a vent safety shutoff system.
Warning:
Operation of this heater, when not connected to a properly
installed and maintained venting system or tampering with the
vent safety shutoff system, can result in carbon monoxide (CO)
poisoning and possible death.
This appliance needs fresh air for safe operation and must be installed so
there are provisions for adequate combustion and ventilation air.
This fireplace heater is equipped with a vent safety switch. The vent safety
switch will cause gas flow to the pilot to "shut off" due to improper venting
or a blocked flue.
If the vent safety switch continues to "shut off" the gas flow to the pilot
a qualified service person must be contacted to inspect for improper
venting, blockage in the vent pipe or the vent safety switch for being
defective.
Figure 12
High Altitudes
When installing this unit at an elevation above 2000 feet (in the United
States) it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by changing the
existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Generally, input should be
reduced 4 percent for each 1000 feet above sea level. However, if the
heating value of the gas has been reduced, this general rule may not apply.
Check with local gas utility for proper orifice size identification.
APPLIES TO CANADIAN MODELS ONLY FOR PROPANE GAS.
Altitude: 0-4,500 feet (0-1370 m) without orifice change.
APPLIES TO CANADIAN MODELS ONLY FOR NATURAL GAS.
Altitude 0-2,000 feet (0-610m) without orifice change.
Cet appareil est équipé pour des altitudes compris entre 0 et 2000 pieds
(0-610m) seulement.
For installations from 610-1370 metres (2,000-4,500 ft.) the orifice
size (DMS) for natural gas is 39. See data plate for additional information.
Reversible Vertical or Horizontal Draft Diverter
This fireplace heater has a reversible draft diverter. The draft diverter is
installed in the vertical position at the factory. Please use the following
steps to change the draft diverter from the vertical position to the
horizontal position.
1. Remove (8) hex-head screws located adjacent to the flue collar on the
draft diverter.
2. Rotate flue collar to the horizontal position on the draft diverter.
3. Attach flue collar to draft diverter with (8) hex-head screws from Step 1.
Pilot Flame Pattern (Figure 13 and Figure 14)
Figure 13 shows a correct pilot flame pattern. The correct flame will be
blue and will extend beyond the thermopile. The flame will surround the
thermopile just below the tip. A slight yellow flame may occur where the
pilot flame and main burner flame meet. Figure 14 shows an incorrect
pilot flame pattern. The incorrect pilot flame is not touching the
thermopile. This will cause the thermopile to cool. When the thermopile
cools, the heater will shut down.
For high altitude installations consult the local gas distributor or the
authority having jurisdiction for proper rating methods. If the installer
must convert the unit to adjust for varying altitudes, the information
sticker (illustrated below) must be filled out by the installer and adhered
to the appliance at the time of conversion.
THE CONVERSION SHALL BE CARRIED OUT BY A
MANUFACTURER'S AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE MANUFACTURER, PROVINCIAL OR TERRITORIAL AUTHORITIES HAVING JURISDICTION AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE CAN/CGA-B141.1 OR CAN/CGA-B141.2 INSTALLATION CODES.

Cleaning the Log Set and Firebox
During the annual inspection and maintenance appointment, the service
person should clean dust, lint, and any light accumulation from the logs
and the firebox area. An extra-soft brush should be used on the logs as they
are extremely fragile; a vacuum cleaner may be used on the firebox. If at
any time the logs cannot be removed or installed without forcing, the
cause must be found. The logs must never be forced.
CAUTION: The ceramic logs are durable when handled and installed
properly. However, they are delicate and may be damaged easily if not
handled with care. Handling damage to the ceramic logs is not covered by
warranty.
DO NOT HANDLE LOGS WHILE THEY ARE HOT. ALLOW

PLEASE NOTE
It is normal for appliances fabricated of steel to give off some
expansion and/or contraction noised during the start up or cool
down cycle. Similar noises are found with your furnace heat
exchanger or car engine.
Glass Cleaning
It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically. During start-up
condensation, which is normal, forms on the inside of the glass and
causes lint, dust and other airborne particles to cling to the glass surface.
Also initial paint curing may deposit a slight film on the glass. It is
therefore recommended that the glass be cleaned two or three times with
a non-abrasive household cleaner and warm water (we recommend gas
fireplace glass cleaner). After that the glass should be cleaned two or
three times during each heating season depending on the circumstances
present.

Operating Guidelines
Before operating this heater, please review the safety warnings pages at
the beginning of this manual and those precautions and warnings listed
below.
1. Know what type of ignition system this model has (standing pilot) and
follow the applicable SAFETY and LIGHTING instructions.
2. Check to ensure there are no gas leaks. If you are unsure, turn gas off
to the heater and call a service person or your gas utility.
CAUTION: Clothing or other flammable material should not be
placed on or near the appliance.
WARNING: Children and adults should be alerted to the hazard
of high surface temperature and should stay away to avoid burns
or clothing ignition. Young children should be carefully supervised
when they are in the same room as the appliance.
3. Tampering is DANGEROUS and voids all warranties. Any component
that is found to be faulty, must be replaced with an approved
component.
Initial Lighting (Figure 21)
Upon completing the gas line or turning the gas valve "ON" after it has
been in the "OFF" position, a small amount of air will be in the lines. When
first lighting the appliance, it will take a few minutes for the lines to purge
themselves of this air. Once the purging is complete, the appliance will
light and operate satisfactorily.
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such purging if the
gas valve is not turned to "OFF."
Standing Pilot Operation
1. Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for standing
pilot controls found in this manual and on labels found attached to the
appliance.
CAUTION: During the initial purging and subsequent lightings,
never allow the gas valve control knob to remain depressed in the
"pilot" position without pushing the piezo ignitor button at least
once every second.
2. During the heating season, leave the control valve knob in the "ON"
position. This will allow the pilot flame to remain lit. Turn the burner
flame on or off with the appliance ON/OFF rocker switch, wall
switch, remote control kits or 750 millivolt wall thermostat.
Figure 21
Maximum and Minimum Input
The gas valve on the appliance allows the input to adjust between a
maximum input of 30,000 Btuh for Natural gas and Propane gas to a
minimum input of 19,500 Btuh for Natural and 22,000 Btuh for Propane.
Please be advised, the maximum input provides the greatest amount of
yellow flame and ember glow on the log set. The minimum input
substantially decreases the yellow flame and ember glow on the log set.
Maintenance & Service Instructions
IMPORTANT: Turn off gas before servicing appliance. It is
recommended that a competent service technician perform these checkups at the beginning of each heating season.
• DO NOT put anything around the heater that will obstruct the flow

STANDING PILOT-TROUBLE SHOOTING
With proper installation and maintenance, your new Vented Fireplace Heater should provide years of trouble-free service. If you do experience
a problem, refer to the Trouble Shooting Guide below. This guide will assist a qualified service person in the diagnosis of problems and the
corrective action to be taken.
1. Spark ignitor will not light pilot after repeated depressing of
piezo ignitor button.
a. Defective ignitor (no spark at electrode)
- Check for spark at electrode and pilot; if no spark and electrode
wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
b. No gas or low gas pressure.
- Check remote shut off valves from fireplace. Usually there is
a valve near the main. There can be more than one (1) valve
between the heater and main.
- Low pressure can be caused by a variety of situations such as
a bent line, too narrow diameter of pipe, or low line pressure.
Consult with plumber of gas supplier.
c. No LP in tank.
- Check LP (propane) tank. Refill tank.
2. Pilot will not stay lit after carefully following lighting instructions.
a. Defective thermopile.
- Check that pilot flame impinges on thermopile. Clean and/or
adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement.
- Ensure that the thermopile connection at the gas valve is tight.
3. Pilot burning, no gas to burner, valve knob "ON", on/off switch
"ON."
a. "On/Off" switch, wall switch, or wires defective.
- Check "on/off" switch and wires for proper connections. Place
jumper wires across terminal at switch - if burner comes on,
replace defective switch. If OK, place jumper wires across
switch wires at gas valve-if burner comes on, wires are faulty or
connections are bad.
b. Thermopile may not be generating sufficient milli-voltage.
- If the pilot flame is not close enough physically to the thermopile,
adjust the pilot flame.
- Be sure the wire connections from the thermopile at the gas
valve terminals are tight and the thermopile is fully inserted into
the pilot bracket.
- Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take the reading
at TH-TP & TP terminals of the gas valve. The meter should read
325 millivolts minimum, while holding the valve knob depressed
the pilot position, with the pilot lit, and the ON/OFF switch in the
OFF position. Replace the faulty thermopile if the reading is
below the specified minimum.
- With the pilot in the ON position, disconnect the thermopile
leads from the valve. Take a reading at the thermopile leads. The
reading should be 325 millivolts minimum. Replace the
thermopile if the reading is below the minimum.
c. Defective valve.
- Turn valve knob to "ON." Place ON/OFF switch to "ON."
Check with millivolt meter at thermopile terminals. Millivolt
meter should read greater than 100 M.V. If the reading is okay
and the burner does not come, replace the gas valve.
d. Plugged main burner orifice.
- Check main burner orifice for blockage, clean main burner
orifice.
4. Frequent pilot outage problem.
a. Pilot flame may be too high or too low, or blowing (high),
causing pilot safety to drop out.
- Clean and adjust flame for maximum flame impingement on
the thermopile. Follow lighting instructions carefully.

Wiring
The appliance, when installed, must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with
the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70 or Canadian
Electrical Code, CSA C22.1, if an external electrical source is
utilized. This appliance is equipped with a three-prong
[grounding] plug for your protection against shock hazard
and should be plugged directly into a properly grounded
three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or remove the grounding
prong from this plug. For an ungrounded receptacle, an
adapter, which has two prongs and a wire for grounding, can
be purchased, plugged into the ungrounded receptacle and its
wire connected to the receptacle mounting screws. With this
wire completing the ground, the appliance cord plug can be
plugged into the adapter and be electrically grounded.
CAUTION: Label all wires prior to disconnection when
servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause improper and
dangerous operation. Verify proper operation after servicing.
WARNING:
Unplugging of blower accessory will not stop the heater
from cycling. To shut heater off: Turn temperature
dial or thermostat to lowest setting. Turn knob on gas
control to "OFF", depressing slightly. Do not force.
Fan Control
The fan control is a non-adjustable automatic type. The fan
control will require between 5 and 10 minutes of main burner
operation before the fan control "closes" and activates the
blower. The blower will continue to run between 5 and 10
minutes after the main burner shuts off, before the fan control
"opens" and deactivates the blower.

R-3450
Cleaning
The blower wheel will collect lint and could require cleaning
once a year. If the air output decreases or the noise level
increases, it indicates a dirty wheel.
Blower Motor
The blower motor does not have oiling holes. Do not attempt
to oil blower motor.
