Hearth Requirements
•
The fireplace must be placed on a wood or non-combustible sub-floor.
•
No hearth is required.
N O T E:
Carpeting or other floor covering (e.g. linoleum, wood flooring) must not protrude 3/4" above
the base of the fireplace. The fireplace must be raised to accommodate any flooring thicker
than 3/4".
HINT:
We strongly suggest using a tile or non-combustible hearth in front of the fireplace. This
protects the area in front of the fireplace from heat dis-coloration or off-gassing. Travis
Industries can not be responsible for floor discoloration in front of the fireplace.
HINT:
If using a 36-DV Face, please be aware that a 1-1/8" gap will appear below the face. We
suggest a non-combustible hearth in front of the face to conceal this area.

Facing Requirements
•
Drywall may be butted up to the drywall standoff.
N O T E:
Drywall or other combustibles may not be placed over the drywall standoff.
N O T E:
No drywall or other combustible may protrude farther than 3/4" in front of the drywall standoff.
Any combustible material that protrudes 3/4" or more from the drywall standoff must meet the
mantel clearance (if located above the fireplace) or sidewall clearance (if located to the side of
the fireplace – see the illustration below).
HINT:
Holes are provided in the drywall standoff to attach the standoff to the framing members. This
stabilizes the standoff and allows the drywall to be anchored to the framing members.

Vent Requirements
!
The vent must maintain the required clearance to combustible materials to prevent a fire (see
“Clearances” below). Do not fill air spaces with insulation.
!
The gas appliance and vent system must be vented directly to the outside of the building, and never
be attached to a chimney serving a separate solid fuel or gas-burning appliance. Each direct vent gas
appliance must use it's own separate vent system.
Altitude Considerations
This fireplace has been tested at altitudes ranging from sea level to 8,000 feet (2,400 M). In this testing we have
found that the fireplace, with its standard orifice, burns correctly with just an air shutter adjustment.
!
Failure to adjust the air shutter properly may lead to improper combustion which can create a safety hazard.
Consult your dealer or installer if you suspect an improperly adjusted air shutter.
Clearances

Clearance Clearance
When using an elbow directly off the top of the fireplace, the
following requirements apply:
• A wall thimble is required when the vent passes through the
first wall (frame 9" tall by 10" wide).
• Minimum 2-1/2" clearance above the vent before the wall
thimble (1" clearance to the sides and bottom of the vent).

Finalizing the Installation (for qualified installers only)
!
If the vent configuration is installed incorrectly the vent may cause the flames inside the fireplace to lift
or "ghost" – a dangerous situation. Inspect the flames after installation to insure proper performance.
If the vent configuration is correct, yet the flames are lifting or ghosting, shut off gas to the fireplace
and contact the dealer for information on remedying the problem.
!
This fireplace has been tested at altitudes up to 8,000 feet. In this testing we have found that the
fireplace, with its standard orifice, burns correctly with just an air shutter adjustment. If local codes
require resizing the orifice, in the U.S.A. refer to ANSI 223.1, Appendix P, in Canada B-149.1 or B149.2
!
Failure to properly adjust the air shutter may lead to improper combustion and a
safety hazard. Consult your dealer or installer if you suspect an improperly
adjusted air shutter.
Burner Ports

The flames should burn right off
the top of the burner ports (if they

Starting The Pilot Flame
The pilot flame is required to ignite the main
burners (it also plays a safety role). It should be
left on once lit. It will stay lit unless the gas
control valve is turned to "OFF". However, the
pilot will go out if the gas is shut off, the
propane tank runs out (or low) or if the stove
malfunctions. If the pilot turns off frequently,
call your dealer for information. To start the
pilot follow the directions below:

Starting the Fireplace for the First Time
+
Burn the fireplace at a high setting with the blower off for an extended period (up to 48 hours). This
will cure the painted surfaces. Fumes from the paint curing and oil burning off the steel will occur.
This is normal. We recommend opening a window to vent the room.
+
Dust may accumulate inside the convection area of the fireplace when left idle. Once the fireplace is
re-started, a “smoky” smell may be created (similar to a baseboard fireplace when it is re-started).
+
Condensation may appear on the glass each time you start the fireplace - this is normal.
+
Blue Flames will occur on the fireplace when it first comes on. After fifteen minutes the flames will
turn a more realistic yellow and orange color.
?
Certain installations use a remote "wall switch" to turn the fireplace on and off. If this is the case, leave
the ON/OFF switch "ON".

control the temperature (right
is hotter, left cooler). Some
systems require the on/off
switch to be on.
!
Do not place any combustible items on top of or directly in front of the fireplace, even temporarily. The
optional thermostat may start the fireplace causing a combustible item to ignite.
?
If the fireplace turns on and off frequently while using the thermostat, you may want to adjust the flame
height down until it produces just enough heat needed.
Adjusting the Flame Height
+
Your fireplace has an adjustable flame to tailor the look and heat output to your specific needs. It is
adjusted by turning the middle dial on the gas control valve.

Failure to inspect and maintain the fireplace may lead to improper combustion and a potentially dangerous
situation. The following procedures must be done by a qualified technician.
Check the pilot flame. It should touch approximately 3/8" of the top of the thermopile and touch the top of the
thermocouple (see illustration below). If it does not, contact your dealer for service.
Shut off gas to the fireplace by turning the gas control knob to "OFF" (see step A under "Starting the Pilot" on
page 29). Let the fireplace cool for 15 minutes. Remove the faceplate (see page 13 or 14) and glass (see page
24).
Remove the log set (NOTE: the logs are very fragile - see page 25). If severely deteriorated, replace.
Check the logs for sooting. A small amount of soot along the bottom of the logs is normal. If excessive sooting
is found, the fireplace will require adjustment. Contact your dealer.
Clean the burner tube (especially the burner holes) and inspect the following:
•
Check the burner for cracked holes, warpage, or corrosion.
•
Check the firebox and area around the pilot to make sure there is no warping or damage.
•
If any problem is found, discontinue use and contact your dealer for service.
Check the walls and ceiling of the firebox for
deterioration.
Make sure the
burner is not
warped or
damaged.
Before Disassembly Check the pilot flame. It
should touch the
thermocouple and
thermopile.
Thermopile
Pilot Hood
Thermocouple
Check the burner holes.
5
Replace the log set. Replace the glass (if the glass is damaged, replace it). Make sure the gasket along the
perimeter of the glass contacts the face of the firebox and forms an air-tight seal. If it does not, re-align or
replace the gasket to insure an air-tight seal. Replace the faceplate.
6 Inspect the area behind the access door. Clean if necessary. Check the gas control valve and all of the gas
lines. If any damage is found, discontinue use and contact your dealer for service.
7 Start the pilot and turn on the main burner. The flames should be orange/yellow and not touch the top of the
firebox. If the pilot or main burners do not burn correctly, contact your dealer for service. Monitor the blower
operation.
8 Inspect the glass. If damage is found, replace the glass (with frame) with Travis Industries glass assembly
(glass installation is on page 24).
9 Remove any debris or vegetation near the vent termination. Contact your dealer if any sooting or deterioration is
found near the vent termination. Clean the air channels and ducts.
1 0 Inspect the vent sections. If any sections are disconnected or require replacement, make sure to seal both
inner and outer sections of pipe and secure the sections together with three sheet metal screws.

How this Fireplace Works
!
This fireplace was designed with safety as the primary concern. Many of the components inside this
fireplace are for safety purposes. Therefore, only certified gas service technicians should service this
fireplace.
What Turns the Main Burners On and Off
When heated, the thermopile
generates electricity (a very small
amount measured in "Millivolts").
This electricity is
used to operate the
main burners.
The main burners
are switched on and
off using the
electricity generated
by the thermopile.
The ON/OFF switch,
remote control, or
thermostat control
the circuit to the main
burner.
MAIN BURNER
This fireplace uses a millivolt system to control its operation (a millivolt is a very small amount of
electricity). The thermopile and thermocouple generate electricity when heated by the pilot flame.
This electricity is used to operate the gas valve. Without enough electricity, the gas valve will not turn
on. That is why when starting the pilot the gas control knob has to be pressed in long enough for the
thermocouple to heat up and generate enough electricity. The thermopile provides power for the
ON/OFF switch, remote control, or thermostat (see the illustration below). Because the thermopile
generates the electricity needed to turn the fireplace on and off, this fireplace can be operated when
the power is out (although the blower will not run).
ON
OFF
What Prevents Gas Buildup
+
This appliance utilizes a high-technology gas valve in conjunction with a pilot flame to ensure no gas
builds up inside the firebox.
+
The thermocouple (next to the pilot) senses when the pilot flame is lit. If the pilot flame goes out, this
thermocouple no longer generates electricity, causing the gas valve to automatically shut off all gas to
the fireplace, preventing the pilot from spilling gas into the firebox.
Pilot Flame
The pilot flame is a time-proven
component that eliminates the possibility
of gas buildup inside the firebox.
Gas Valve
This high-technology valve automatically
shuts off all gas if it does not receive a signal
from the thermocouple. If any component is
damaged or sensing a malfunction, or if the
wiring is damaged, it will shut off all gas.
Thermocouple
The thermocouple generates a small
amount of electricity. If the pilot flame
goes out, the gas valve automatically
shuts off all gas.
Travis Industries
External Shut Off Valve
This valve is placed on the gas line
to shut off gas to the appliance
during maintenance procedures.
Ceramic Glass
The glass in your heater is the most
durable glass available. It has been
tested to be extremely resistant to
breakage from temperature changes.

Fireback (Part # 98500675)
!
Install the fireback prior to installing the log set.
a
Locate the four dimples on the firebox walls (two
on the back, one on each side). Use a power drill
with a 1/4” socket and the included self-drilling
screws to pre-drill (and thread) the holes. Do not
strip the threads by over-torquing the screws.
Remove the screws.
NOTE: on earlier models these holes are not
present - they will require placement and drilling see the compatibility note above.
d
Install the fireback floor pieces at the front of the firebox.
You may need to lift up on the grate at the front of the burner
to install the floor pieces. Tuck the front brick stop between
the front of the fireback and the front of the firebox - the
brick stop prevents the floor fireback from contacting
the glass.

Place the rear fireback so it is centered against
the rear wall of the firebox. Secure with two
fireback clips and the screws.
