QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE FOR THE OPTIFLAME
ELECTRIC FIREPLACE

• Are the circuit breakers for the fireplace on?
• Are the light bulbs in your fireplace loose? (to check, follow the
instructions for replacing the light bulbs under the maintenance
section of this manual)

wall thermostat is set above the current room temperature and any
wall switches for the unit are on. If this does not work, switch the unit
off for 5 minutes and try again. Consult operation section of your
practical users guide for further information.

on the rating plate located under the logs in the lighting area.

A. Wall Mounted Switches
This model may be installed such that a wall mounted switch activates the flame effect and
a wall mounted heater switch activates the heater. A wall mounted switch can also be
installed to operate the heater independent of the flame.
B. Wall Mounted Thermostat
This unit may be installed such that a wall mounted thermostat can adjust the heat
temperature to your individual requirements. Turn the thermostat control clockwise all the
way to turn on the heater. When the room reaches the desired temperature, turn the
thermostat knob counter clockwise until you hear a click. Leave in this position to maintain
4
the room temperature at this setting. For additional heat, turn the thermostat clockwise
until you hear the click again and the heater will turn on. To turn the heater off, turn the
thermostat counter clockwise all the way, and/or turn the manual heater switch on the unit
to the OFF position.
RESETTING THE TEMPERTURE CUTOUT SWITCH

back on without being reset. It can be reset by switching the Main Power switch (FIGURE
2) to OFF and waiting 5 minutes before switching it to ON.
CAUTION
If you need to continuously reset the heater, disconnect the power at the main service
panel and call your local dealer.
NOTE
The heater may emit a slight, harmless odor when first used. This odor is a normal
condition caused by initial heating of internal heater parts and will not occur again.

LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT
Allow at least 5 minutes for light bulbs to cool off before touching bulbs to avoid accidental
burning of skin.
Light bulbs need to be replaced when you notice a dark section of the flame or when the
clarity and detail of the log exterior disappears. There are four bulbs under the log set
which generate the flames and embers.
LIGHT BULB REQUIREMENTS
Quantity of 4 clear chandelier or chandelabra bulbs with an E-12 (small) socket base, 60
watt rating. Example: GE 60BC or Philips 60CTC.
DO NOT EXCEED 60 WATTS PER BULB.
CAUTION
When handling log only apply force to the ember bed section not directly to the logs.
HELPFUL HINTS
It is a good idea to replace all light bulbs at one time if they are close to the end of their
rated life. Group replacement will reduce the number of times you need to open the unit to
replace light bulbs. Long life bulbs are recommended to reduce the frequency of bulb
changes.
5
To access the light bulb area:
1. Open steel curtain (remove glass doors if
applicable).
2. Remove two screws on log bracket and
set aside. (FIGURE 3)
3. Pull front edge of plastic ember bed or plastic
grate up and forward until rear tab releases from
the ledge located at the bottom of the mirror.
(FIGURE 4)
Note: Log set fits tightly into firebox, some force
may be necessary to remove.

require replacement.
5. Unscrew bulbs counter clockwise.
6. Insert new bulbs.
