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.
125078-01B
• 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
Location and space
requirements
Determine the safest and most efficient location for your direct vent fireplace. Make sure
that rafters and wall studs are not in the way of
the venting system. Choose a location where
the heat output is not affected by drafts, air
conditioning ducts, windows or doors. Figure
2 shows some common locations. Be aware
of all restrictions and precautions before
deciding the exact location for your fireplace
and termination cap.
When deciding the location of your fireplace,
follow these rules:
• Do not connect this fireplace venting to a
chimney flue serving a separate solid-fuel
burning fireplace or appliance.
• Due to high temperatures, do not locate this
fireplace in high traffic areas, windy or drafty
areas or near furniture or draperies.
• Proper clearances must be maintained.
• If your fireplace is to be installed directly on
carpeting, vinyl tile or any combustible material other than wood, it must be installed on a
metal or wood panel extending the full width
and depth of the fireplace (see Figure 3).
• Your fireplace is designed to be used in
zero clearance installations. Wall or framing material can be placed directly against
any exterior surface on 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, page 7.
• When locating termination cap, it is important to observe the minimum clearances
shown in Figure 7, page 8.
• 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.
6
• You may paint the termination cap with
450º F (232º C) heat-resistant 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 and the front of outside
air vent.
• Do not locate termination cap and outside
air vent where excessive snow or ice build
up may occur. Be sure to clear vent termination area after snow falls to prevent
accidental blockage of venting system.
When using snow blowers, do not direct
snow towards vent termination area.

Venting Installation
NOTICE: Read these instructions completely before attempting installation.
These models are tested and approved for
use with FMI PRODUCTS, LLC (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 may 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.
• 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.
• For installation of fireplace at elevations of
4000 feet or greater, pay special attention
to venting requirement recommendations.
WARNING: Read all instructions completely and thoroughly
before attempting installation.
Failure to do so could result in
serious injury, property damage
or loss of life.
NOTICE: Do not seal termination
cap to vent pipe. Cap must be
removable for vent inspection
and maintenance.
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 FMI
PRODUCTS, LLC
• 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.
NOTICE: Failure to follow these instructions will void the warranty.

INSTALLATION PLANNING
There are two basic types of direct vent
installation:
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
Horizontal Termination Installation
IMPORTANT: Horizontal square terminations
require only inner portion of wall firestop. Horizontal installations using round termination
require exterior portion of wall firestop.
1. Set fireplace in its desired location and determine the route your horizontal venting
will take. Do not secure fireplace until all
venting has been installed. Some installations require sliding fireplace in and out
of position to make final venting connections. Figures 14 and 15 on page 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 location of fireplace.
2. Direct vent pipe sections and components
are designed with special twist-lock connections.
Twist-Lock Procedure: Female ends of
pipes have locking lugs (indentations).
These lugs will slide straight into matching slots on male ends of adjacent pipes.
Push pipe sections together and twist
one section clockwise approximately onequarter turn until 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. Assemble desired combination of pipe
and elbows to fireplace flue collar. If there
are long portions of venting run, pre-assembled pipe sections may be installed
as subassemblies for convenience.
4. Carefully determine location where vent
pipe assembly will penetrate outside wall.
Center of hole should line up with center
line of horizontal vent pipe. Mark wall for
an 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" square hole. Cut and
frame square hole in exterior wall where
vent will be terminated. If wall being pen125078-01B
etrated is constructed of noncombustible
material, such as masonry block or concrete, a 8 1/2" hole with zero clearance is
acceptable (see Figure 9).
WARNING: Do not recess
vent termination into any wall.
This will cause a fire hazard.

5. Noncombustible Exterior Wall: Position
horizontal vent cap in center of the 8 1/2"
round hole and attach to exterior wall
with four wood screws provided. Before
attaching vent cap to exterior wall, run a
bead of non-hardening mastic (pliable
sealant) around outside edges to make a
seal between it and outside wall.
Note: Four wood screws provided should
be replaced with appropriate fasteners for
stucco, brick, concrete or other types of
sidings (see Figure 10).
Combustible Exterior Wall: For vinyl
siding, stucco or wood exteriors, a siding
standoff may be installed between vent
cap and exterior wall. Siding standoff
prevents excessive heat from damaging
siding materials. Siding material must be
cut to accommodate standoff. Bolt vent
cap to standoff. Apply non-hardening
mastic around outside edge of standoff.
Position standoff/cap assembly in the
center of 11 1/2" square hole and attach to
exterior wall with provided wood screws
(see Figure 11). Siding standoff must sit

1. Determine route your vertical venting will
take. If ceiling joists, roof rafters or other
framing will obstruct venting system, consider an offset (see Figure 15, page 14)
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 venting system and any
maximum horizontal offset limitations.

1. Cut a 11 1/2" square hole in ceiling using
locating hole as a center point. Opening
should be framed to 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" inside
dimensions, as shown in Figure 8 on page
9 using framing lumber the same size as
ceiling joists. If area above ceiling is an
insulated ceiling or an attic, nail firestop
from top side. This prevents loose insulation from falling into required clearance
space. If area above ceiling is a living
space, install firestop below framed hole.
Firestop should be installed with no less
than three nails per side (see Figure 15).
2. Assemble desired lengths of pipe and
elbows necessary to reach from fireplace
flue up through firestop. Be sure all pipe
and elbow connections are fully twistlocked (see Figure 8, page 11).
3. Cut a hole in the roof using locating hole
as a center point. (Cover any exposed
14
7.
open vent pipes before cutting hole in
roof.) The 11 1/2" x 11 1/2" hole must be
measured on the horizontal; actual length
may be larger depending on pitch of roof.
There must be a 1" clearance from vent
pipe to combustible materials. Frame
opening as shown in Figure 9, page 11.
Connect a section of pipe and extend up
through hole.
Note: If an offset is needed to avoid
obstructions, you must support vent pipe
every 3 feet. Use wall straps for this purpose (see Figure 15). Whenever possible,
use 45° elbows instead of 90° elbows. The
45° elbow offers less restriction to the flow
of flue gases.
Place flashing over pipe section(s) extending through roof. Secure base of
flashing to roof and framing with roofing
nails. Be sure roofing material overlaps
top edge of flashing as shown in Figure
15. There must be a 1" clearance from
vent pipe to combustible materials.
Continue to add pipe sections until height
of vent cap meets the minimum building
code requirements described in Figure 7
on page 8.
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
vent height may solve this problem.
Twist-lock vent cap onto last section of

Your FMI PRODUCTS, LLC direct vent
fireplace has been tested and approved for
elevations from 0-2000 feet.
Fireplaces for high altitude (-HA Models) are
for installations above 4,000 feet only. These
fireplaces are equipped with parts specific for
higher altitudes.
When installing a non-high altitude fireplace at
an elevation above 2000 feet, you may need
to decrease the input rating by changing the
existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Reduce
input 4% for each 1000 feet above sea level.
Check with your local gas company for proper
orifice size identification.
When installing this fireplace at an elevation
above 4500 feet, check with local authorities.

Fireplace Installation
CHECK GAS TYPE
Use proper gas type for the fireplace unit you
are installing. If you have conflicting gas types,
do not install fireplace. See retailer where you
purchased the fireplace for proper fireplace
according to your gas type.
Installing Gas Piping to
Fireplace Location
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.
WARNING: For natural
gas, never connect fireplace to
private (non-utility) gas wells.
This gas is commonly known
as wellhead gas.
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)
* An equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT
tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge
connection. Purchase the equipment shutoff
valve from your retailer.
16
For propane/LP connection only, the installer
must supply an external regulator. The external regulator will reduce incoming gas pressure. You must reduce incoming gas pressure
to between 11" and 14" of w.c. pressure. 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 18. Pointing the vent down
protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
CAUTION: Use only new,
black iron or steel pipe. Internally-tinned copper tubing may
be used in certain areas. Check
your local codes. Use pipe of
1/2" diameter or greater to allow
proper gas volume to fireplace.
If pipe is too small, undue loss
of volume will occur.
Installation must include an equipment shutoff
valve, union and plugged 1/8" NPT tap. Locate
NPT tap within reach for test gauge hook up.
NPT tap must be upstream from fireplace (see
Figure 19, page 17).
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.

Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT
threads. This will prevent excess sealant from
going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could
result in clogged fireplace valves.
WARNING: Use pipe joint
sealant that is resistant to liquid
petroleum (LP) gas.
We recommend that you install a sediment
trap/drip leg in supply line as shown in Figure

PILOT Assembly
The pilot assembly is factory preset for the
proper flame. Alterations may have occurred
during shipping and handling. The pilot is
located on right hand side of burner.
The flame must envelope 1/4" of top of the
ignitor/sensor and grounding stem.
If your pilot assembly does not meet these
requirements:
• Turn the adjustment screw marked PILOT
clockwise to decrease or counterclockwise
to increase the flame to proper size (see
Figure 33, page 23). Do not remove the
adjustment screw.

GLASS DOORS
WARNING: Handle glass
door panels with care. Do not
strike, slam or otherwise abuse
glass. Do not operate fireplace
with the glass door unlatched,
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.

Cleaning and Maintenance
Continued
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 19 of this manual when removing
glass door for cleaning.
WARNING: Only parts supplied by the manufacturer
should be used when replacing
broken or damaged glass door
panels (see Replacement Parts,
page 36). Glass door panel are
complete units. 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 19). Vacuum all glass pieces with
a shop vac.
CAUTION: Do not vacuum if
pieces are hot.
Use only glass door replacement intended for
this fireplace (see Replacement Parts, page
36 for detail on ordering). No substitutions
may be made. See Removing/Replacing
Glass Door, page 19 for instructions for replacing glass doors.
125078-01B
WARNING: Do not operate
fireplace with glass door unlatched, removed, cracked or
broken.
Pilot and burners
• Remove 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
• Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any
carbon buildup on logs.
• Replace material periodically as needed.
See Replacement Parts, page 36.
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.

Terms Common to All Warranties
The following terms apply to all of the above warranties:
Always specify model number and serial number when contacting the manufacturer. To make a claim under this
warranty the bill of sale or other proof of purchase must be presented.
This warranty is extended only to the original retail purchaser when purchased from an authorized dealer, and only
when installed by a qualified installer in accordance with all local codes and instructions furnished with this product.
This warranty covers the cost of part(s) required to restore this product to proper operating condition and an allowance for labor when provided by a FMI PRODUCTS, LLC Authorized Service Center or a provider approved by
FMI PRODUCTS, LLC. Warranty parts must be obtained through authorized dealers of this product and/or FMI
PRODUCTS, LLC who will provide original factory replacement parts. Failure to use original factory replacement
parts voids this warranty.
Travel, handling, transportation, diagnostic, material, labor and incidental costs associated with warranty repairs,
unless expressly covered by this warranty, are not reimbursable under this warranty and are the responsibility of
the owner.
Excluded from this warranty are products or parts that fail or become damaged due to misuse, accidents, improper

This is FMI PRODUCTS, LLC’s exclusive warranty, and to the full extent allowed by law; this express warranty
excludes any and all other warranties, express or implied, written or verbal and limits the duration of any and all
implied warranties, including warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose to four (4) years on
new products and 30 days on factory reconditioned products from the date of first purchase. FMI PRODUCTS, LLC
makes no other warranties regarding this product.
FMI PRODUCTS, LLC’s liability is limited to the purchase price of the product, and FMI PRODUCTS, LLC shall not
be liable for any other damages whatsoever under any circumstances including indirect, incidental, or consequential
damages.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental
or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
