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
re-enter 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 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 to set too
Page 4
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.

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!
NOTE: The millivolt gas controls are equipped with a captured
screw type pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to provide
a 1/8" test point up stream of the control.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings.
The appliance and it’s individual shut off valve must be disconnected
from supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system
at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system
by closing its individual manual shut off 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 procedures results in pressures in excess
of 1/2 psig (14" w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the fireplace gas valve, it will
result in a hazardous condition.
Checking Manifold Pressures
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) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 4.5" w.c.
(1.120kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
14.0" w.c. (3.484kPa). Propane gas models will have a manifold
pressure approximately 10.0" w.c. (2.49kPa) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 10.8" w.c.
(2.68kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
14.0" w.c. (3.484kPa).

INSTALLATION
Framing and Finishing
1. Choose unit location.
2. Frame in fireplace with a header across the top. It is important to
allow for finished face when setting the depth of the frame.
3. Attach fireplace to frame using adjustable nailing flange. Preset
depth to suit facing material (adjustable to 3/8", 1/2" or 3/4" depths).
Note: Fireplace must mount flush to facing material. If facing
material requires more depth than 3/4" mark and drill two
(2) 1/8" holes into fireplace side at appropriate depth. See
Figure 10.
4. Use (8) 1/2" hex-head screws supplied in hardware package,
to screw through slotted holes in drywall strip and then screw
into pre-drilled holes on fireplace side. Measure from face of
fireplace to face of drywall strip to determine final depth.
Vent Pipe Clearance
Note: Maintain one inch (1") of clearance around vertical vent
pipe. See Figure 9A. For horizontal vent, maintain a minimum 1"
clearance to the bottom and sides of the vent, and 3" clearance to
combustibles above the vent pipe. See Figure 9B.

Framing (Figure 11)
Fireplace framing can be built before or after the fireplace is set in
place. Framing should be positioned to accommodate wall covering
and fireplace facing material. The fireplace framing should be
constructed of 2 x 4 lumber or heavier. The framing headers may
rest on the fireplace standoffs. Refer to Figure 11 for minimum
framing dimensions.
CAUTION: MEASURE FIREPLACE DIMENSIONS AND
VERIFY FRAMING METHODS, AND WALL COVERING
DETAILS BEFORE FRAMING CONSTRUCTION
BEGINS.
Framing dimension "A" includes a six inch clearance
for standoffs on fireplace. After installing fireplace into
framing, the finished non-combustible wall surface must
cover the six inch opening above the fireplace.
Attention: Appliance must not be recessed below any flooring,
including carpeting, for proper front mounting. A metal or wood
panel extending the full width and depth of the appliance may
be required to raise the unit to the same level, or above existing
flooring. The vertical dimension in Figure 11 must be adjusted
when a panel is placed beneath the appliance.

Finishing (Figures 12 and 13)
Finish the walls with the material of your choice. Figure 3 on
page 8 shows the minimum vertical and corresponding maximum
horizontal dimensions of mantels or other combustible projections
above the top front edge of the fireplace.
The black fireplace front must not be covered. It must be flush
to the finished wall.
Warning: When finishing the fireplace never obstruct or
modify the air inlet/outlet louvers in any manner. Provide
adequate clearances around air openings into the combustion
chamber.
Caution: If the joints between the finished wall and the fireplace
surround (top and sides) are sealed, a 300°F minimum sealant
material must be used. These joints are not required to be sealed.
Only non-combustible material (using 300°F minimum adhesive
if needed), can be applied as facing to the fireplace.

Venting Graph (Dimensions in Feet)
To Use the Vent Graph (Figure 17)
1. Determine the height of the center of the horizontal vent
pipe. Using this dimension on the Sidewall Vent Graph,
locate the point it intersects with the slanted graph
line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical line
to the bottom of the graph.
3. Select the indicated dimension, and position the unit in
accordance with same.
TOP EXIT - VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL TERMINATION
(DIMENSIONS IN FEET)
EXAMPLE B:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is 6.5
feet, the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not
exceed 14.5 feet.
Special Note: For each 45 degree elbow installed in the
horizontal run, the length of the horizontal run MUST be
reduced by 18" (45cm). This does not apply if the 45 degree
elbows are installed on the vertical part of the vent system.
Reduce 3' for every 90° elbow.
Example: According to the chart the maximum horizontal
vent length is 20' and if two 45 degree elbows are required
in the horizontal vent it must be reduced to 17'.
The maximum number of 45 degree elbows permitted per
side wall installation is two (2). These elbows can be installed
in either the vertical or horizontal run.
Note: On vertical venting the first elbow does not get
counted.
Note: Flue heat shield must be installed for venting
applications with less than two feet of vertical pipe off the
top of the fireplace.

Below Grade Installation
When it is not possible to meet the required vent terminal clearances
of 12" (305mm) above grade level, a snorkel kit is recommended. It
allows installation depth down to 7" (178 mm) below grade level.
The 7" (178 mm) is measured from the center of the horizontal
vent pipe as it penetrates through the wall.
Ensure the sidewall venting clearances are observed. If venting
system is installed below ground, we recommend a window well
with adequate and proper drainage to be installed around the
termination area.

Positioning the Fireplace
Determine the exact position of the appliance so the direct vent
termination will be centered (if possible) between two (2) studs. This
will avoid any extra framing. All vent kit pipes should be assembled
on the unit after the unit is moved into the final position.
Cutting the Hole (Figure 23)
After the fireplace has been positioned in its permanent location,
the hole through the exterior wall of the house can be cut. This hole
must be 12" (305 mm) high x 10" (254 mm) wide with its center
line determined by the amount of vertical rise and horizontal run of
the termination. See Figure 23. When locating the hole it must be
noted that the bottom of the cap must be 12" (305 mm) above the
ground level, and top of the cap must be no less than 18" (457 mm)
below a combustible projection, and no closer than 9" (229 mm) to
any wall running parallel to vent termination. See Figure 24.

off what will not be needed.
Refer to the fireplace installation manual for information on vertical venting requirements. The maximum length of vent when using flex
venting is 35 feet total. Contact your dealer or distributor for information on flex vent extension kits that may be added to the DVVK4FV kit, in order to terminate up to 35 feet. Available extension kits include the DVEK-10 (10’ Flex) or the DVEK-25 (25’ Flex) extension kits. The extension kits include connection hardware.
Installation of the Vertical Flex Termination Kit
WARNING
Ensure that the venting system exits the structure through the roof and does not terminate less than 12 inches (305 mm) above the
roof.
WARNING
Refer to your fireplace homeowner’s manual for the minimum and maximum venting requirement of your fireplace prior to installation. Failure to do so may cause a fire hazard.
WARNING
This flexible pipe termination kit is ONLY for vertical terminations.
WARNING
Any horizontal run section must have a 1/4” rise for every one (1) foot of run towards the vent termination. Never allow the vent pipe
to run downward. This could cause high temperatures and may present a fire hazard. This vertical kit may incorporate two (2) 90 degree bends, but must terminate vertically.
CAUTION
This flex vent kit can only be installed vertically off of the unit and must terminate vertically.
WARNING
Because of sharp edges, always use gloves when handling the flex vent components.

DVVK-4FV DIRECT VENT TERMINATION KIT (cont.)
Step-By-Step Installation For Flex DV Kit
1. Unpack vent components and check all items for shipping
damage.
2. For this venting system to operate as designed it is dependent on the use of all parts and procedures detailed in these
instructions. Failure to follow these instructions may potentially affect the performance of this vent system and the attached appliance.
3. As per the fireplace manufacturer’s instructions, replace the
existing 6 5/8” diameter fireplace vent adapter with the 7”
diameter flex vent fireplace adapter included in the vent kit.
Install the adapter collar with the screws removed from the
standard fireplace collar. Refer to the fireplace manual for additional information on the vent collar removal and installation.
4. Once the fireplace location has been determined, mark the
ceiling where the flex vent will pass through. Cut an opening
for installation of the firestop thimble assembly. The opening must measure a minimum of 9-1/2” x 9-1/2” square. See
Figure 29.
5. Next, determine the location for the cutout in the roof opening. This opening must be large enough to provide a minimum 1” air space clearance from the vertical vent pipe to any
combustible framing.
6. Install the Firestop/Thimble assembly to the framed opening
in the ceiling using common nails or screws.
Note: The thimble assembly is adjustable up or down as
needed within the firestop. It is also designed with a pivoting
firestop for use with 0 - 3/12 pitch cathedral ceilings.
7. To begin vent system assembly, first layout all the vent components on the floor in the order in which they will be assembled.
8. Stretch the 4” diameter inner flex flue and 7” diameter outer
flex vent to the maximum length of 6 feet.
9. Install the spring spacers provided around the 4” diameter
flex flue at 1 foot intervals, then slide the flue pipe with spacers into the 7” diameter outer flex vent pipe. Make sure the
springs are spaced evenly starting at 12 inches from the fireplace collar. See Figure 30.

10. With the flex vent assembly and the 48” long hard pipe components laid out on the floor, begin securing these parts together. First, apply a generous bead of silicone sealant to the
inside of the 4” diameter flex flue (not the end with the preinstalled connector), then slide the flex flue over the 4” diameter hard pipe flue. Be sure to overlap at least 1-1/4”. Secure
this connection with a 4” diameter band clamp provided. Be
careful not to damage or tear the flex flue when tightening
clamp.
11. Repeat the connection process for the outer 7” diameter flex
vent to hard pipe connection. Use silicone sealant at this joint
also, overlap at least 1-1/4”, then secure the joint with the 7”
diameter band clamp provided. Be careful not to damage or
tear the flex vent pipe when tightening the clamp.
12. While the venting is still on the floor, assemble the roof jack
components as shown in Figure 31 and pre-install the roof
jack assembly to the hard pipe approximately 18” from the
top end of the hard pipe.
PIPE CLAMP
13. Now the pre-assembled vent system may be carried to the
roof, then lowered through the roof cutout opening (see step
5). Feed the flex vent end down through the roof opening and
firestop/thimble assembly installed in steps 4 through 6.
14. Secure the roof support assembly to the roof sheathing with
at least (4) nails/screws through each support bracket. Check
that the combustible clearances through the roof framing will
maintain at least a 1” clearance from the vent pipe.
15. Determine how high the vent terminal should be located
above the roof line based on the roof pitch information shown
in Figure 33. Adjust the vent system height by loosening the
pre-installed roof support pipe clamp and sliding the vent
pipe up or down as pre-determined, then re-tighten the pipe
clamp. Install a couple of sheet metal screws through the pipe
clamp into the outer hard vent pipe to lock in place.
16. Check to make sure that the bottom end of the flex vent is
long enough to reach the fireplace adapter collars. If too long,
trim off the extra flex vent not needed.

17. To attach the vent connections at the fireplace, be sure the 7”
diameter adapter collar has been installed per step 3. Apply
a bead of silicone sealant to the 4” diameter flex connector,
then slide the flex pipe adapter collar into the fireplace flue
collar and secure by installing a minimum of two (2) screws
through the flue collar and into the adapter. See Figure 34.
18. Apply sealant to the 7” diameter adapter collar, slide outer
flex vent over the collar, then secure with a 7” diameter band
clamp. See Figure 34.
19. Once the lower connections are made and the flex pipe is
secured with support bands as required (3 feet minimum between supports) then the roof flashing can be installed. See
Figure 35.
20. Install the roof flashing, and seal using common constructions practices.
21. An additional storm collar band is provided in kit that may be
used as an attic insulation shield. The collar can be installed
around the flex pipe (or hard pipe) just above the firestop

The vinyl siding vent kit, DV-822, is available from Empire Comfort
Systems, Inc. The depth is 3” (76 mm), which enables the vent cap
to be extended away from vinyl siding or projections. The wall depth
plus the additional 3” (76 mm) depth of the vinyl siding vent cap
extension should not exceed a total depth of 13 3/4” (349 mm).
If wall depth exceeds 13 3/4” (349 mm), extend system using
6 5/8” (168 mm) x 4” (102 mm) rigid venting (See Fireplace Instructions for approved lengths) See Figure 38.

Installing Wall Thimble/Firestop Assembly
1. Fix fireplace to permanent location. If using rigid venting system, install up to the location where it will exit the building.
2. Cut hole in wall for wall thimble/firestop assembly into your
combustible wall. See Figure 37. Note: On brick or block
exterior wall a 7” (178 mm) diameter hole needs to be cut.
Measure the total wall thickness to determine whether or not
the extension thimble is to be used. If the combustible wall
depth is over 5 3/8” (137 mm), then the extension thimble
should be used. See Figure 37.
3. Install the wall thimble assembly through the framed
opening so the firestop plate is on the interior wall. See
Figure 37. Telescope section should extend all the way through
the exterior wall. Attach with (4) 10 x 1” screws.
4. When placing the vent cap on an exterior wall covered with
combustibles such as wood, lap, or vinyl siding, install the
vinyl siding kit to the exterior wall sheathing.

Connecting Directly to Fireplace
If the air inlet and flue outlet tubes are to be connected directly to
the unit (no rigid venting system is being used), then the gasket
provided must be used to seal the 4” (102 mm) flue outlet tube.
Peel the paper off the self-adhesive gasket and then wrap it around
the end of the tube (if tube was cut, it is recommended to use cut
end) as shown in Figure 41. Pull the gasket tight at all times while
wrapping it around tube. The gasket ends should align, to form a
complete seal. The overlapped section should NOT come in contact with the seam in the tube. Apply high temperature sealant to
the opposite end of the tube (on the inside of the tube). The end
with the gasket will attach to the back of the unit. Continue with

DVVK-4F FLEX VENT INSTRUCTIONS
The DVVK-4F FLEX VENT KIT includes the following components:
• (1) Horizontal Termination Cap
• (1) 7" diameter Outer Vent adapter collar
• (1) 4-foot section of Flex vent with spacers (4" flue/7" outer
• (1) Wall Firestop/Thimble Assembly
pipe)
• Hardware pack that includes band clamps and screws
• (1) 4" diameter flue adapter collar
Flex venting can only be installed vertically off of the DVX Series fireplaces. When installing a horizontal vent run from top connections,
maintain at least ½" rise for every 12" of vent run. Refer to Figure 54 when mounting termination near vinyl siding.
CAUTION: Always stretch and secure venting with wire or metal strapping to ensure that the horizontal runs do not sag.
If space permits, it is generally easier to attach venting in the top vent configuration.
Because of sharp edges, always use gloves when handling the flex vent components.
Vent connections should overlap a minimum of 1" for proper sealing.
Always follow the general venting requirements for vent terminal location, vent lengths, and clearance to combustible materials.
INSTALLATION
1. Unpack vent components and check that all items are included.
2. Check to see that the vent spacer springs are located around the flue
vent at 8" and 12" intervals along its length. See Figure 42. If not,
stretch the spacer springs to about 15" long and wrap them around
the flue, then interlock the ends of each spring about 2". See Figure
43. Maintain equal distance between spring spacers.
SPACER
SPRINGS

Attach the Termination Cap to the outside of the house.
Prior to making the vent connections, apply high temperature sealant
(1000 degree F min.) to the vent connections before securing with
the band clamps provided. Note: The flue pipe end without the
adapter is to be installed to the Termination Cap.
10. Apply sealant to the outside of the flue pipe adapter and connect
to the flex flue pipe. Then insert the adapter into the fireplace flue.
Secure flue adapter to the fireplace flue with a minimum of two
screws provided. See Figure 44.
11. Attach the Outer Vent pipe to the 7" diameter Collar on the fireplace
with a large band clamp provided. Sealant may also be used on the
outer vent connections.
12. Check all vent connections for tightness. Make sure horizontal
venting has the proper rise and combustible clearances required.
Refer to venting charts in fireplace instruction manual.

with the vent kit.
Slide the Flex Vent flue pipe into the Outer Flex Vent pipe.
Install the Wall Firestop/Thimble assembly as required through the
wall. Refer to the venting charts in the fireplace manual to determine
the proper height and size of the vent opening. The minimum
opening should be 9" wide by 11" high. The minimum combustible
clearance from the horizontal vent is 1" from sides and bottom, and
3" above the vent pipe. See Figure 45.
In most cases, after determining the length of the vent that is
needed, it may be easier to install the flue and outer vent pipes to
the Termination Cap first, then from the outside, feed the venting
through the wall to the fireplace.
If the venting is to long, trim off any excess vent before attaching

Vertical Sidewall Installations
Important! Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible materials is three (3") (76 mm) on top, and (1") (25 mm) on bottom
and sides.
Important! When vent termination exits through foundation less than 20" below siding outcrop, the vent pipe must extend outward so
that the horizontal vent terminal is located flush to, or beyond the outcrop siding.
Information on Various Venting Routes and Components
Important: It is always best to locate the fireplace in such a way that minimizes the number of offsets and horizontal vent length.
Since it is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust, certain
limitations as to vent configurations apply and must be strictly adhered to.
The graph showing the relationship between vertical and horizontal side wall venting will help to determine the various vent lengths
allowable.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace to the face of the outer wall.
The maximum horizontal vent run is 20 feet (457 cm) when the vertical vent rise is 8 feet (244 cm). See Figure 17.
Venting terminals shall not be recessed into wall or siding.

Vertical runs of this system which pass through ceilings require the
use of ONE (1) ceiling firestop at the hole in each ceiling through
which the vent passes.
Position a plumb bob directly over the center of the vertical vent
component and mark the ceiling to establish the center point of the
vent. Drill a hole or drive a nail through this center point and check
the floor above for any obstructions such as wiring or plumbing
runs. Reposition the appliance and vent system, if necessary, to
accommodate ceiling joists and/or obstructions.
Figure 49
Installing Firestops (Figures 50, 51, 52, and 53)
Firestops are required for safety whenever the vent system passes
through an interior wall, an exterior wall, or a ceiling. These firestops
act as a firebreak heat shield and as a means to insure that minimum
clearances are maintained to the vent system.
Horizontal runs in the vent system which pass through either interior
or exterior walls, require the use of wall firestops on both sides of
the wall through which the vent passes.
Cut an appropriate sized hole through the ceiling, using the center
point previously marked. See Figure 51. Frame the hole with
framing lumber the same size as the ceiling joists. See Figure 51.
If the area above the ceiling is NOT an attic, position and secure
the ceiling firestop on the ceiling side of the previously cut and
framed hole. See Figure 52. If the area above the ceiling is an attic,
position and secure the firestop on top of the previously framed
hole. See Figure 53.
NOTE: Remove insulation from the framed area in the attic before
installing the firestop and/or vent pipes.
Cut an appropriate sized hole in wall. See Figure 50. Position
firestop on interior side of wall for hole.
Attention: Wall firestop hole is off-set towards bottom of wall
opening. Secure with nails or screws. Continue the vent run through
the firestop. See Figure 50.

HORIZONTAL TERMINATION
NOTE: Termination cap should pass through the wall firestop
from the exterior of the building. Adjust the termination
cap to its final exterior position on the building.
Warning: Termination cap must be positioned so that arrow
is pointing up.
Attach the termination cap with the four wood screws provided.
Before attachment of the termination, run a bead of silicone sealant
rated above 250°F on its outside edge too, so as to make a seal to
the exterior wall.
NOTE: Wood screws can and should be replaced with appropriate
fasteners for use on stucco, brick, concrete or other types
of siding.
CAUTION: If exterior walls are finished with vinyl siding, (or
materials that could become discolored or warp) it is necessary to
install a vinyl siding standoff.
The vinyl siding standoff will be installed between the vent
termination and the exterior wall. See Figure 54. This horizontal vent
termination bolts onto the flat portion of the vinyl siding standoff, so
an air space will exist between the wall and the termination cap.

•
• (1) 4-foot section of Flex vent with spacers (5" flue/8"
•
outer pipe) with flue adapter collar
(1) Wall Firestop/Thimble Assembly
Hardware pack that includes band clamps and screws
Flex venting can only be installed vertically off of the DVX Series fireplaces. When installing a horizontal vent run from top connections, maintain at least ½" rise for every 12" of vent run. Refer to the Figure 54 when mounting termination near vinyl siding.
CAUTION: Always stretch and secure venting with wire or metal strapping to ensure that the horizontal runs do not sag.
If space permits, it is generally easier to attach venting in the top vent configuration.
Because of sharp edges, always use gloves when handling the flex vent components.
Vent connections should overlap a minimum of 1" for proper sealing.
Always follow the general venting requirements for vent terminal location, vent lengths, and clearance to combustible materials.
INSTALLATION
1. Unpack vent components and check that all items are included.
2. Check to see that the vent spacer springs are located around the
flue vent at 8" and 12" intervals along its length. See Figure 55.
If not, stretch the spacer springs to about 15" long and wrap them
around the flue, then interlock the ends of each spring about 2".
See Figure 56. Maintain equal distance between spring spacers.

4. Install the Wall Firestop/Thimble assembly as required through
the wall. Refer to the venting charts in the fireplace manual to
determine the proper height and size of the vent opening. The
minimum opening should be 10" wide by 12" high. The minimum
combustible clearance from the horizontal vent is 1" from sides
and bottom, and 3" above the vent pipe. See Figure 56.
5. In most cases, after determining the length of the vent that is
needed, it may be easier to install the flue and outer vent pipes to
the Termination Cap first, then from the outside, feed the venting
through the wall to the fireplace.
6. If the venting is to long, trim off any excess vent before attaching
the vent end connectors.

VERTICAL TERMINATION
Locate and mark the center point of the venting pipe. Using a nail
on the underside of the roof and drive this nail through this center
point. Make the outline of the roof hole around this center point.
NOTE: Size of the roof hole dimensions depend on the pitch of
the roof. There must be a 1 inch clearance (25 mm) to the
vertical pipe sections. This clearance is to all combustible
material.
Cover the opening of the vent pipe and cut and frame the roof hole.
Use framing lumber the same size as the roof rafters and install the
frame securely. Flashing anchored to frame must withstand high
winds. The storm collar is placed over this joint to make a watertight seal. Non-hardening sealant should be used to completely seal
this flashing installation.
Determining Minimum Vent Height Above the Roof.
WARNING: Major U.S. building codes specify minimum
chimney and/or vent height above the roof top. These minimum
heights are necessary in the interest of safety. These specifications are summarized in Figure 59.

Note that for steep roof pitches, the vent height must be increased.
In high wind conditions, nearby trees, adjoining roof lines, steep
pitched roofs, and other similar factors can result in poor draft,
or down-drafting. In these cases, increasing the vent height may
solve this problem.

When terminating the vent cap near an exterior wall or overhang,
maintain minimum clearances as shown in Figure 60.
General Maintenance
Conduct an inspection of the venting system semi-annually.
Recommended areas to inspect are as follows:
1. Check areas of the venting system which are exposed to the
elements for corrosion. These will appear as rust spots or
streaks and, in extreme cases, holes. These components should
immediately be replaced.
2. Remove the cap and shine a flashlight down the vent. Remove
any bird nests or other foreign material.
3. Check for evidence of excessive condensate, such as water
droplets forming in the inner liner and subsequently dripping
out at joints. Condensate can cause corrosion of caps, pipe and
fittings. It may be caused by having excessive lateral runs, too
many elbows and exterior portions of the system being exposed
to cold weather.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe sections or fittings have been
disturbed and, consequently, loosened. Also, check mechanical
supports, such as wall straps or plumbers’ tape for rigidity.
Venting terminal shall not be recessed into a wall or siding.
A removable panel or other means must be provided in the enclosure
for visual inspection of the flue connection.
NOTE: This also pertains to vertical vent systems installed on the
outside of the building.
Slide the vertical vent cap over the ends of the vent pipe and secure.
See Figure 61.
Installing the Vent System in a Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose the gas
appliance and/or it’s vent system. Vertical vent runs on the outside
of a building may be, but are not required to be installed inside a
chase.

Therefore, your local building codes must be checked to determine
the requirements for these steps.
NOTE: When installing this vent system in a chase, it is always
good building practice to insulate the chase as you would the
outside walls of your home. This is especially important for cold
climate installations. Upon completion of building your chase
framing, install the vent system by following the instructions in
this manual. Remember to build the chase large enough so that
minimum clearance of combustible materials (including insulation)
to the vent system are maintained.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
750 Millivolt System
The standing pilot (750 millivolt system) is a continuous burning
pilot. The pilot remains ON even when the main burner is OFF.
The OWNER should carefully read and follow these operating
instructions at all times. Lower the door assembly to view the gas
controls for the fireplace.
When you ignite the pilot, the thermopile produces millivolts
(electrical current) which energizes the magnet in the gas valve.
After 30 seconds to 1 minute time period you can release the gas
control knob and the pilot will stay ON. Allow your pilot flame to
operate an additional one (1) to two (2) minutes before you turn the
gas control knob from the PILOT position to the ON position. This
time period allows the millivolts (electrical current) to build-up to
a sufficient level allowing the gas control to operate properly.
Initial Lighting
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 fireplace, it will take a few minutes
for the lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is
complete, the fireplace will light and operate satisfactorily.
1. Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for
standing pilot controls found in this manual and on labels found
in control compartment behind the door assembly.
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.
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such purging
if the gas valve is not turned to “OFF.”
Pilot Flame (Figure 68)
The thermopile/thermocouple (standing pilot) tips should be
covered with flame.
2. During the operating 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 fireplace Remote/OFF/
ON switch, wall switch or remote controls.
NOTE: The gas control valve allows you to increase or decrease the
height of the main burner flame. The control valve has a pressure
regulator with a knob as shown in Figure 67. Rotate the knob
clockwise to “HI” to increase the flame height and counterclockwise
to “LO” to decrease the flame height.
3. When the operating season is over, turn the Remote/OFF/ON
switch to “OFF” and the control valve to “OFF”. The system,
including the pilot light, will be shut down.

STANDING PILOT TROUBLESHOOTING
With proper installation and maintenance, your new Direct Vent Gas Fireplace will 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 triggering
of piezo ignitor button.
a. Defective ignitor (no spark 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 fireplace 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 or 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 thermocouple.
—Check that pilot flame impinges on thermocouple. Clean
and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement.
—Ensure the thermocouple connection at the gas valve is
fully inserted and tight (hand tight plus 1/4 turn). Faulty
thermocouple if reading is below specified minimum of 15
millivolts.
—Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one
millivolt meter lead wire on the end of the thermocouple
and the other millivolt meter lead wire on the thermocouple
copper wire. Start the pilot and hold the valve knob in. If
the millivolt reading is less than 15 millivolt, replace the
thermocouple.
b. Defective valve.
—If thermocouple is producing more than 15 millivolts,
replace faulty valve.
3. Pilot burning, no gas to burner, valve knob “ON”, REMOTE/
OFF/ON switch “ON.”
a. REMOTE/OFF/ON switch, wall switch, remote control or
wires defective.
—Check REMOTE/OFF/ON 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 millivolts.
—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 350 millivolts minimum, while holding
the valve knob depressed in the pilot position, with the pilot
lit, and the REMOTE/OFF/ON switch in the OFF position.
Page 48
4.

7.
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 350 millivolts minimum. Replace the
thermopile if the reading is below the minimum.
c. Defective valve.
—Turn valve knob to ON. Place REMOTE/OFF/ON switch
to ON. Check with millivolt meter at thermopile terminals.
Millivolt meter should read greater than 200 millivolts. If the
reading is okay and the main burner does not ignite, replace
the gas valve.
d. Plugged main burner orifice.
—Check main burner orifice for blockage and remove.
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 thermocouple. Follow lighting instructions carefully.
The pilot and main burner extinguish while in operation.
a. No LP (Propane) in tank.
Check LP (Propane) tank. Refill fuel tank.
b. Inner vent pipe leaking exhaust gases back into system.
—Check for leaks.
c. Glass too loose, gasket leaks in corners after usage.
—Be certain glass assembly is installed correctly.
d. Horizontal vent improperly pitched.
—The horizontal vent cap should slope down only enough
to prevent any water from entering the unit. The maximum
downwards slope is 1/4 inch.
e. Bad thermopile or thermocouple.
—Replace if necessary.
f. Improper vent cap installation.
—Check for proper installation and freedom from debris or
blockage.
Glass soots.
a. Flame impingement on logs.
—Check and adjust log position. Contact Empire Comfort
Systems, Inc.
b. Debris around throat of main burner.
—Inspect the opening at the base of the main burner. It is
imperative that NO material be placed in this opening.
Flame burns blue and lifts off main burner.
a. Insufficient oxygen being supplied.
—Check to make sure vent cap is installed properly and free
of debris. Make sure that vent system joints are tight and

INTERMITTENT PILOT TROUBLESHOOTING (continued)
Safety Lockout
S8600H provides 100 percent shutoff, or safety lockout. A timer
starts timing the moment the trial for ignition starts. Ignition spark
continues only until the timed trial for ignition period ends. Then
the module goes into safety lockout. Lockout de-energizes the
first main valve operator and closes the first main valve in the gas
control, stopping pilot gas flow. The control system must be reset
by setting the thermostat below room temperature for one minute
or by turning off power to the module for one minute.
Main Burner Operation
When the pilot flame is established, a flame rectification circuit
is completed between the sensor and burner ground. The flame
sensing circuit in the module detects the flame current, shuts off the
spark generator and energizes the second main valve operator. The
second main valve opens and gas flows to the main burner, where
it is ignited by the pilot burner. The flame current also holds the
safety lockout timer in the reset (normal) operating condition.
When the call for heat ends, both main valve operators are deenergized, and both main valves in the gas control close.
Caution: Label all wires prior to disconnection when
servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause improper and
dangerous operation. Verify proper operation after servicing.

INTERMITTENT PILOT TROUBLESHOOTING (continued)
Important
1. The following service procedures are provided as a general
guide.
2. Meter readings between gas control and ignition module must
be taken within the trial for ignition period. Once the ignition module locks out, the system must be reset by setting the
thermostat down for at least one minute before continuing.
3. If any component does not function properly, make sure it is
correctly installed and wired before replacing it.
4. The ignition module cannot be repaired. If it malfunctions, it
must be replaced.
5. Only trained, experienced service technicians should service
intermittent pilot systems.
Perform the checkout steps on page 51 as the first step in
troubleshooting. Then check troubleshooting guide
to pinpoint the cause of the problem. If troubleshooting indicates
an ignition problem, see Ignition System Checks below to isolate
and correct the problem.
Following troubleshooting, perform the checkout procedure
(page 51) again to be sure system is operating normally.
Ignition System Checks
Step 1: Check ignition cable.
Make sure:
A. Ignition cable does not touch any metal surfaces.
B. Ignition cable is no more than 36 inches long.
C. Connections to the ignition module and to the igniter-sensor
are clean and tight.
D. Ignition cable provides good electrical continuity.
Step 2: Check ignition system grounding.
Nuisance shutdowns are often caused by a poor or erratic
ground.
A. A common ground, usually supplied by the pilot burner bracket,
is required for the module and the pilot burner/igniter sensor.
• Check for good metal-to-metal contact between the pilot
burner bracket and the main burner.
• Check the ground lead from GND (BURNER) terminal on
the module to the pilot burner. Make sure connections are
clean and tight. If the wire is damaged or deteriorated, replace
it with No. 14-18 gauge, moisture-resistant, thermoplastic
insulated wire with 105 C (221 F) minimum rating.
• If flame rod or bracket are bent out of position, restore to
correct position.
• Replace pilot burner/igniter sensor if insulator is
cracked.
Step 3: Check spark ignition circuit. You will need a short jumper
wire made from ignition cable or other heavily insulated
wire.
A. Close the manual gas valve.
B. Disconnect the ignition cable at the SPARK terminal on the
module.
25613-0-0309
Warning
When performing the following steps, do not touch stripped
end of jumper or SPARK terminal. The ignition circuit
generates 13,000 volts at 25 pf load and electrical shock
can result.
C. Energize the module and immediately touch one end of the
jumper firmly to the GND terminal on the module. Move the
free end of the jumper slowly toward the SPARK terminal
until a spark is established.
D. Pull the jumper slowly away from the terminal and note the
length of the gap when sparking stops. Check table below.
ARC LENGTH
No arc or arc less than 1/8
inch.
ACTION
Check external fuse, if
provided.
Verify power at module input
terminal.
Replace module if fuse and
power okay.
Arc 1/8 inch or longer.
Voltage output is okay.
Step 4: Check pilot flame current.
A. Turn off furnace at thermostat.
B. Disconnect main valve wire from the TH or MV terminal on
the gas control.
C. Disconnect ground wire from GND (BURNER) terminal at
module.
D. Connect a meter (dc microamp scale) in series with the ground
lead.
• Disconnect ground lead from GND terminal on ignition
module.
• Connect the black (negative) meter lead to the ignition
module GND (BURNER) terminal.
• Connect the red (positive) meter lead to the free end of the
ground lead.
E. Set thermostat to call for heat. The spark will light the pilot but
the main burner will not light because the main valve actuator
is disconnected.
F. Read the meter. The flame sensor current must be steady and
at least 1.0 uA.
G. If the reading is less than the minimum or unsteady,
• Make sure pilot flame envelopes 3/8 to 1/2 inch of the flame
rod.
• If necessary, adjust pilot flame by turning the pilot adjustment
screw on the gas control clockwise to decrease or counterclockwise to increase pilot flame. Following adjustment,
always replace pilot adjustment cover screw and tighten
firmly to assure proper gas control operation.
• Check for cracked ceramic insulator, which can cause short
to ground, and replace igniter-sensor if necessary.
• Make sure electrical connections are clean and tight. Replace
damaged wire with moisture-resistant No. 18 wire rated for
continuous duty up to 105 C (221 F).
H. Remove meter and reconnect all wires. Return system to
normal operation before leaving job.

MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE
Please Note
It is normal for appliances fabricated of steel to give off
some expansion and/or contraction noise during the start
up or cool down cycle. Similar noises are found with your
furnace heat exchanger or car engine.
It is not unusual for your gas fireplace to give off some odor the
first time it is burned. This is due to the curing of the paint and any
undetected oil from the manufacturing process.
Please ensure that your room is well ventilated - open all
windows.
It is recommended that you burn your fireplace for at least
six (6) hours the first time you use it. Place fan in the “OFF”
position during this time.
IMPORTANT: Turn off gas before servicing appliance. It is
recommended that a qualified service person perform these checkups at the beginning of each heating season.
• Clean Burner and Control Compartment
Keep the control compartment, logs, and burner areas surrounding
the logs clean by vacuuming or brushing at least twice a year.
Cleaning Procedure
1. Turn off pilot light at gas valve.
2. Remove glass front. (See Glass Removal)
3. Vacuum burner compartment.
4. Reinstall glass front.
5. Ignite pilot. (See Lighting Instructions)
6. Operate the pilot burner. If it appears abnormal call a service
person.
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.
General Glass Information
Warning: Do not operate appliance with the glass front
removed, cracked or broken. Replacement of the glass should
be done by a licensed or qualified service person.
Only glass approved for use by the manufacturer in fireplace may
be used for replacement. The glass replacement should be done by
a licensed or qualified service person.
WARNING:
1. The use of substitute glass will void all product warranties.
2. Care must be taken to avoid breakage of the glass.
3. Under no circumstances should this appliance be operated without
the glass front or with a broken glass front. Replacement of
the glass (with gasket) as supplied by the manufacturer should
be done by a qualified service person.
4. Do not abuse the glass by striking or hitting the glass.
WARNING: Do not use abrasive cleaners on glass. Do not
attempt to clean glass when glass is hot.
• Check Vent System
The appliance and venting system should be inspected before
initial use and at least annually by a qualified service person.
Inspect the external vent cap on a regular basis to make sure
that no debris is interfering with the air flow.

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, 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 screw. 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.
