odor and smoke during initial fires, depending
upon temperatures over time. This is caused
by the curing of high temperature paint and
manufacturing materials. This condition can
be alleviated by opening a window or door to
provide additional ventilation. See Break-in

Safety Notices
• BURN SOLID, NATURAL WOOD FUEL ONLY. DO NOT BURN ANY
OTHER FUEL.
• DO NOT USE CHEMICALS OR FLUIDS TO START A FIRE. DO NOT
BURN GARBAGE OR FLAMMABLE FUELS.
• DO NOT USE A GRATE OR ELEVATE THE FIRE. BUILD THE FIRE
DIRECTLY ON THE HEARTH.
• IF THIS ROOM HEATER IS NOT PROPERLY INSTALLED, A HOUSE
FIRE MAY RESULT. TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, FOLLOW THE
INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS MANUAL. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE
INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE, BODILY
INJURY, OR LOSS OF LIFE.
• CONTACT LOCAL BUILDING OR FIRE OFFICIALS ABOUT RESTRICTIONS AND INSTALLATION INSPECTION REQUIREMENTS IN
YOUR AREA.
• ANY EXISTING CHIMNEY SYSTEM MUST BE INSPECTED BEFORE
INSTALLATION OF THIS APPLIANCE.
• DO NOT CONNECT THIS STOVE TO ANY AIR DISTRIBUTION
DUCT OR SYSTEM.
• EXTREMELY HOT WHILE IN OPERATION! KEEP CHILDREN,
CLOTHING, AND FURNITURE AWAY. CONTACT WILL CAUSE SKIN
BURNS. USE A CHILD GUARD SCREEN TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL
CONTACT BY SMALL CHILDREN.
• INSTALL SMOKE DETECTORS IN THE LIVING AREA AND BEDROOMS OF YOUR HOME. TEST THEM REGULARLY AND INSTALL
FRESH BATTERIES TWICE ANNUALLY.
WHEN INSTALLED IN THE SAME ROOM AS THE STOVE, A SMOKE
OR CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR SHOULD BE LOCATED AS
FAR FROM THE STOVE AS POSSIBLE TO PREVENT THE ALARM
SOUNDING WHEN ADDING FUEL.
• Avoid creating a low pressure condition in the room where
the stove is operating. Be aware that operation of an exhaust
fan or clothes dryer can create a low pressure area and consequently promote flow reversal through the stove and chimney
system. In some cases, the optional Outside Air Kit #154335
can be used to alleviate this condition. The chimney and building, however, always work together as a system - provision of
outside air, directly or indirectly to an atmospherically vented
appliance will not guarantee proper chimney performance.
Consult your local Jøtul authorized dealer regarding specific
installation/performance issues.
• Jøtul strongly recommends that this stove be installed by
a professional solid fuel technician, or that you consult one
if you do the work yourself. Also, consult your insurance
company regarding any other specific requirements.
Always consult your local building inspector or authority having
jurisdiction to determine what regulations apply in your area.

1.0Installation
1.1 Assembly before Installation
The Jøtul F 500 is shipped with the flue collar, gasketing and
hardware inside the stove.
• To install the flue collar in the top or rear exit position remove
the tape from the gasketing and adhere to the groove on the
back of the stove around the flue opening.
• Place the flue collar on the stove in the top or rear exit position
and secure with the nut, bolt and washer.
• The nut and washer are placed on the inside of the stove.
• Take out the ash lips, which are inside the burn chamber, and
install. The one in front is placed loosely on top of the base
plate, while the side ash lip is fastened with the screw that
is pre-installed on the base plate.
2.0 Chimney and Chimney
Connector
The chimney connector is a single walled pipe used
to connect the stove to the chimney. For use with the
Jøtul F 500, the chimney connector must be 6” (152mm) in
diameter, with a minimum thickness of 24 gauge black steel.
• Aluminum and Galvanized steel pipe is not acceptable for use
with the Jøtul F 500. These materials cannot withstand the
extreme temperatures of a wood fire and can give off toxic
fumes when heated.
• Do not use the connector pipe as a chimney.
• Each chimney connector or stove pipe section must be
installed to the stove flue collar and to each other with the
male (crimped) end toward the stove. See figure 2.
• This prevents any amount of condensed or liquid creosote
from running down the outside of the pipe or the stove top.
• All joints, including the flue collar connection must be secured
with three sheet metal screws.
• For the best performance the chimney connector should be
as short and direct as possible, with no more than two 90°
elbows.
• The maximum horizontal run is 36”(915mm) and a recommended
total length of stove pipe should not exceed 10 feet.
• Always slope horizontal runs upward 1/4” (6,35mm) per foot
toward the chimney.
• No part of the chimney connector may pass through an attic
or roof space, closet or other concealed space, or through a
floor or ceiling.
• All sections of the chimney connectors must be accessible for
cleaning.
• Where passage through a wall or partition of combustible
construction is desired, the installation must conform with
NFPA 211 or CAN/CSA-B365, and is also addressed in this
manual.
• Do not connect this unit to a chimney flue servicing another
appliance.

2.1 Chimney Requirements
T h e re a re t wo t y p e s o f c h i m n eys s u i t a b l e fo r t h e
Jøtul F 500:
1. A code- approved masonry chimney with a flue liner.
2. A prefabricated chimney complying with the requirements
for Type HT (2100°F) chimneys per UL 103 or ULC S629.
An existing chimney system must pass a UL 1482 Level II
inspection conducted by a qualified technician or building official.
The chimney size should not be less than the cross-sectional area
of the flue collar, and not more than three times greater than the
cross-sectional area of the flue collar.
When selecting a chimney type and the location for the chimney
in the house, keep this in mind: it is the chimney that makes the
stove work, not the stove that makes the chimney work. This is
because a chimney actually creates a suction, called “draft”, which
pulls air through the stove.
Several factors affect draft: chimney height, cross-sectional area
(size), and temperature of the chimney, as well as the proximity
of surrounding trees or buildings.
As a result, a short masonry chimney on the exterior of a house
will give the poorest performance. This is because it can be very
difficult to warm the chimney thereby creating inadequate draft.
In extremely cold northern areas it may be necessary to reline the
chimney or extend its height to help establish draft.
Conversely, a tall masonry chimney inside the house is easier to
keep warm and will perform the best.
The following guidelines give the necessary chimney requirements
based on the national code (ANSI-NFPA 211for the US. And CSA
CAN-B365 for Canada). However, many local codes differ from
the national code to take into account climate, altitude, or other
factors.
Notice:
It is important that you check with your local building officials
to find out what codes apply in your area before installing your
new Jøtul F 500.
Remember: Your local inspector(s) have the final authority in
approving your installation. It is always best to consult with them
prior to the installation.
2.2 Masonry Chimneys
When installing the Jøtul F 500 into a masonry chimney you must
conform to all of the following guidelines:
• The chimney flue size should not be less than the crosssectional area of the stove flue collar.
• The cross-sectional area of the flue of a chimney with no walls
exposed to the outside below the roofline shall not be more
than three times the cross-sectional area of the stove flue
collar.
• The cross-sectional area of the flue of a chimney with one or
more walls exposed to the outside below the roofline shall
not be more than two times the cross-sectional area of the
stove flue collar.
• Larger chimney flues should be relined with a listed or code
approved liner.
139681_R04 F 500 Oslo
• The masonry chimney must have a fireclay liner or equivalent,
with a minimum thickness of 5/8” (16mm) and must be
installed with refractory mortar. There must be at least 1/4”
(6,35mm) air space between the flue liner and chimney wall.
• The fireclay flue liner must have a nominal size of 8” X 8”, and
should not be larger than 8” X 12”. If a round fireclay liner is
to be used it must have a minimum inside diameter of 6”
(157mm) and not larger than 8” (208mm) in diameter.
• If a chimney with larger dimensions is to be used, it should
be relined with an appropriate liner that is code approved.
• The masonry wall of the chimney, if brick or modular block,
must be a minimum of 4”(106mm) nominal thickness. A
mountain or rubble stone wall must be at least 12” (310mm)
thick.
• A newly-built chimney must conform to local codes and in
their absence must recognize national regulations. W h e n
using an existing chimney, it must be inspected by a licensed
professional chimney sweep, fire official, or code officer, to
ensure that the chimney is in proper working order.
• No other appliance can be vented into the same flue.
• An airtight clean-out door should be located at the base of
the chimney.
2.3 Prefabricated Chimneys
If a prefabricated metal chimney is to be used it must be a
chimney type that is tested and listed for use with solid fuel
burning appliances.
That means a chimney that is tested to the following:
High Temperature (HT) Chimney Standard UL 103 for the U.S. and
High Temperature Standard ULC S-629 for Canada.
The manufacturer’s installation instructions must be followed
precisely. Always maintain the proper clearance to combustibles
as established by the pipe manufacturer. This clearance is usually
a minimum of 2” (56mm), although it may vary by manufacturer
or for certain chimney components.
2.4 Chimney Height
The minimum chimney height is 15 feet (4.57 m). The chimney
must also be at least 3 feet higher than the highest point where
it passes through the roof and at least 2 feet higher than the
highest part of the roof or structure that is within 10 feet of the
chimney, measured horizontally. See figure 3.
Chimneys shorter than 14 feet may not provide adequate draft.
This could result in smoke spilling into the room from the stove
when loading the stove, or when the door is open. In addition,
inadequate draft can cause back puffing, which is a build up of
gases inside the firebox.
Other times, chimney height can create excessive draft which can
cause high stove temperatures and short burn times. Excessive
drafts can be corrected by installing a butterfly damper. If you
suspect you have a draft problem, consult your dealer.
1/21/17
2.5 Wall Pass-throughs
When your installation unavoidably requires the chimney
connector to pass through a combustible wall to reach the
chimney, always consult your local building officials, and be sure
any materials to be used have been tested and listed for wall
pass-throughs.
In the U.S.
The National Fire Protection Association’s publication, NFPA
211, Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces, Vents and Solid Fuel
Burning Appliances permits four methods for passing through
a combustible wall. Before proceeding with any method be sure
to consult with your local building officials to discuss any local
code requirements.
Common Method:
• When passing through a combustible wall to a masonry
chimney this method requires the removal of all combustible
materials from at least 12” (310mm) around the chimney
connectors proposed location. With a 6” (157mm)round liner
the minimum area required would be 31” x 31” (792x792mm)
square.
• The space is then filled with at least 12” (310mm)of brick around
a fireclay liner. Remember, the liner must be ASTM C35 or
equivalent, with a minimum wall thickness of 5/8” (16mm).
• It is important to remember to locate the pass-through at
least 18”(457mm) from the ceiling for proper clearance to
combustibles.
• It will be necessary to cut wall studs, install headers, and
construct a sill frame to maintain the proper dimensions and
to support the weight of the brick.
• The bricks must be solid brick with a minimum of
• 3 1/4 “ (83mm) thick (4” (106mm) nominal).
• Refractory mortar must be used at the junction of the chimney
and the pass-through liner. The pass-through liner must not
penetrate the chimney liner beyond the inner surface of the
chimney liner. Use extreme care when constructing the hole
in the chimney liner, the tiles can shatter easily. See figure 4.
In Canada
In Canada the standard has been established by the Canadian
Standard Association. The installation must conform to CAN/
CSA-B365, Installation Code for Solid Fuel Burning Appliances
and Equipment. Before proceeding be sure to consult your local
building inspector.
Common Method:
This method requires the removal of all combustible materials
from at least 18” (457mm) around the chimney connector’s
proposed location. With a 6” (157mm) round liner the minimum
area required would be 43” x 43” square (1092x1092mm).
It is important to remember to locate the pass-through at least
18” (457mm) from the ceiling to maintain the proper clearance
to combustibles.
The space that is cleared of combustible materials must then
remain empty. Sheet metal panels can then be used to cover
the area. However, when using a panel on both sides of the wall
each cover must be installed on noncombustible spacers at least
1”(25,4mm) from the wall. If one panel of sheet metal is to be
used it may be installed flush to the wall.
5
139681_R04 F 500 Oslo 1/21/17
See section 5.3.1 and 5.3.2 of CAN/CSA - B365-M91.
Consult your local building inspector, authorized Jøtul Dealer,
NFPA 211 in the U.S. or CAN/CSA-B635 in Canada for other
approved wall pass-through methods.
3.0 Connecting to the Chimney
3.1 Masonry Chimney Thimbles
When installing a Jøtul F 500 into a masonry chimney through a
“thimble”(the opening through the chimney wall to the flue), the
thimble must be lined with ceramic tile or metal and be securely
cemented in place.
The chimney connector/stove pipe must slide completely inside
the thimble to the inner surface or the flue liner. It may be
necessary to make use of a thimble sleeve (a pipe with a slightly
smaller diameter than standard stove pipe). This special pipe can
be easily installed into a thimble. See figure 5.
Make sure the connector pipe or thimble sleeve does not protrude
into the flue liner, thereby restricting the area the smoke has to
flow through. This bottle-neck will have a negative affect on the
chimney system.
The chimney connector should be sealed at the thimble with
refractory cement and the stove pipe leading to the stove should
have a minimum of three screws.
Do not connect this stove to a chimney flue servicing another
appliance of any kind.
3.2 Hearthmount Into a Masonry Fireplace
The Jøtul F 500 has a rear exit flue collar height of 28 1/4” (718
mm) when installed with standard legs. Substitution of Short
Legs will lower the height to 26” (660 mm).
When installing the Jøtul F 500 into a masonry fireplace, code
requires that the fireplace damper plate be removed or securely
fixed in the open position. A connector pipe must then extend
from the stove’s flue exit through the damper area of the fireplace
and into the chimney tile liner. See figure 6.
The inside area of the flue liner must not be less than the area of
the stove’s flue exit, and cannot be more than three times greater
than the cross sectional area of the stove’s flue exit.
If the chimney liner is too large to accommodate the stove, an
approved relining system must be installed to resize the flue.
A new sheet metal damper block-off plate must be installed
around the connector pipe at the damper frame and sealed with
the proper sealant (usually High-Temp Silicone).
Fireplace installation must also observe the proper clearances to
surrounding trim and mantels (addressed in clearance section of
this manual). In addition, fireplace installations must also adhere
to the floor protection guidelines specified in the following
section.
6
3.3 Prefabricated Chimneys
When installing the Jøtul F 500 to a prefabricated metal chimney
always follow the pipe manufacture’s instructions and be sure
to use the components that are required. This usually includes
some type of “smoke pipe adapter” that is secured to the bottom
section of the metal chimney and allows the chimney pipe to
be secured to it with three sheet metal screws. See figure 7.
4.0 Clearances to
Combustibles
4.1 Floor Protection
Floor protection under the stove must be a UL 1618 Type I Ember
Protector composed of non-combustible material for protection
from radiant heat, sparks, and embers. The Bottom Heat Shield
supplied is required only in Alcove installations.
Individual sections of floor protection must be mortared together
to prevent sparks from falling through to combustible materials.
Any carpeting must be removed from under the floor protection.
In the U.S. and Canada
The Jøtul F 500 must be installed on a non-combustible surface
extending:
A minimum of 18” (457mm) in front of the stove and the left side
load door (measured from the legs).
And 8” (200mm) on the right side and back of the stove
(measured from side and back panels).
This will result in a minimum floor protection of
54,25”W X 50,5”D.(1378mm x 1283mm) See figure 8.
In a rear vent installation the floor protection must also extend
under the stove pipe a minimum of 2” (50mm) beyond either
side of the pipe.
Alternate hearth protection
A hearth pad measuring 46”wide X 50,5” deep (1168mmx1283mm)
can be used only if the left side door is locked to prevent use. Door
Lock Kit #155850 is available for this purpose.
4.2 Clearances to Walls and Ceilings
The following clearances have been tested to UL and ULC
standards and are the minimum clearances specifically
established for the Jøtul F 500.
The following diagrams give the required clearances you must
maintain when installing the Jøtul F 500 near combustible
surfaces. See pages 17-18.
A combustible surface is anything that can burn (i.e. sheet rock,
wall paper, wood, fabrics etc.). These surfaces are not limited to
those that are visible and also include materials that are behind
non-combustible materials.
139681_R04 F 500 Oslo
1/21/17
If you are not sure of the combustible nature of a material, consult
your local fire officials. Contact your local building officials about
restrictions and installation requirements in your area.
Remember: “Fire Resistant” materials are considered combustible;
they are difficult to ignite, but will burn. Also “Fire-rated” sheet
rock is also considered combustible.
5. H e a r t h p r o t e c t i o n m a t e r i a l m u s t c o n s i s t o f:
a) a UL/ULC listed Type II Thermal Floor Protector or,
b) material having a minimum r value of 1.6 (see appendix a).
6. Minimum ceiling height in an unprotected installation, off the
top of the stove is 41”(1041 mm). The minimum ceiling height
off the top of the stove in a protected ceiling installation is
15”(380mm).
Using Shields to Reduce Clearances
Use of the left side load door is prohibited in alcove installations.
Install 155840 Side Door Lock kit available from your dealer.
Pipe shields: When using listed pipe shields to reduce the connector
clearance to combustibles, it must start 1”(25,4mm) above the
lowest exposed point of the connect pipe and extend vertically
a minimum of 25” (635mm) above the top surface of the stove.
Double wall pipe: Listed double wall pipe is an acceptable
alternative to connector pipe heatshields.
Wall-Mounted Protection: When reducing clearances through the
use of wall mounted protection:
In the U.S. refer to NFPA 211, Standard for Chimneys, Fireplaces,
Vents and Solid Fuel Burning Appliances, for acceptable materials,
proper sizing and construction guidelines.
In Canada, refer to CAN/CSA-B365, Installation Code for Solid-Fuel
Burning Appliances and Equipment, also for acceptable materials,
proper sizing and construction guidelines.
Rear Heatshield: A stove rear heatshield has been specifically
designed for the Jøtul F 500.
Rear heatshield part # 154332.
No other heat shield may be used.
See pages 17-18 for complete clearance requirements and
diagrams.
Notice
Accessories for wood stoves for clearance reduction have been
developed by many manufacturers. If not following the methods
of the installation codes, be sure that any accessory you choose
has been tested by an independent laboratory and carries the
laboratory’s testing mark. Follow all of the manufacturer’s
instructions.
Always contact your local building inspector or fire officials
about restriction and requirements in your area. Your local
officials have final authority for installation approval.
4.3 Alcove Installation
The Jøtul F 500 can be installed in an alcove situation provided:
See figures 9 and 10.
1. The stove must be installed with listed double walled pipe.
2. In a protected alcove installation both side walls and rear wall
must be protected per NFPA 211 or CAN/CSA-B365. The wall
protection must be elevated 1”(24,5mm) from the floor and
at least 1” (24,5mm)off the combustible wall to allow for an
air-flow.
3. The height of the wall protection including the bottom air
space must be 48”(1219mm).
4. The bottom heatshield is required in all Alcove installations.
See page 15 for installation instructions.
4.5 Mobile Home Installations
The Jøtul F 500 has been approved for use in mobile homes in the
U.S. and Canada, provided:
1. The stove is secured to the floor or the mobile home. Floor
mounting kit #750304. The structural integrity of the mobile
home must be maintained.
2. All chimney components, including chimney sections, supports,
spark arrestor, etc., shall comply with the Standard for Factorybuilt Chimneys for Residential Type and Building Heating
Appliances, UL 103 and/or CAN/ULC-S629 Standard for 650°C
Factory-built Chimneys.
3. The chimney shall be attached directly to the stove and extend
at least 3 ft. (0.9m) above the roof. Termination must be at
least 2 ft. (0.6m) above the hightest elevation of any part of
the mobile home within 10 ft. (3m).
4. In order to allow for transportation of the mobile home, the
chimney termination shall be readily removed at or below an
elevation of 13.5 ft. (4.1 m) above ground level and reinstalled
without use of special tools or instructions.
5. A spark arrester must be installed at the termination. The net
free area of the arrester above the chimney outlet must not
be less than four times the net area of the chimney outlet,
and the vertical height of the arrester must not be less than
one-half the diameter of the chimney flue. Openings shall not
permit the passage of a sphere having a diameter larger than
1/2” (12.7 mm), and shall permit the passage of a sphere having
a diameter of 3/8” (9.6 mm).
6. Direct connection of the stove to an outside air source is
required. Use Outside Air Kit 154333. Do not substitute any other
connection method or device. See page 11 for more details. Duct
termination must not be installed at a level that is higher than
the air inlet located at the bottom of the stove.
7. When the chimney exits the mobile home at a location
other than through the roof, and exits at a point 7 ft. (2.1 m)
or less above the ground level, a guard or other method of
enclosing the chimney, must be provided at the point of
exit for a height up to 7 ft. Openings of this chimney guard
shall not permit penetration of a 3/4 in. (19.1 mm) diameter
rod, or contact with the chimney by a 1/2 inch (12.7 mm)
diameter rod inserted through the opening a distance of
4 inches (102 mm).
DO NOT INSTALL THE STOVE IN A BEDROOM OR SLEEPING AREA.
Always consult your local building inspector or fire officials
about restrictions and requirements in your area prior to
installing the stove.

5.0 Operation
Please read the following section completely before building a
fire in your new Jøtul F 500.
5.1 Combustion Efficiency
The Jøtul F 500 has an EPA tested High Heating Value (HHV)
efficiency rate of 73.94. There are, however, aspects of efficiency
that you should be aware of in order to get the most from your
stove. Operation habits and fuel moisture can have a significant
effect on efficiency. Poorly seasoned wood having a higher than
optimum moisture content, can reduce the amount of energy
transferred to the living area as a result of the energy expended
to evaporate the excess fuel moisture in order for the wood to
burn. Operational habits - such as not building a robust kindling
fire to readily ignite the larger fuel pieces - can result in an
inefficient, smoldering fire. Additionally, most modern wood
heaters’ optimum performance and efficiency are at the medium
to medium-low burn rates.
The location of the stove can also have a significant effect on
heating efficiency, primarily in regard to distribution of the heat.
For example, a wood heater centrally located in an open living
area, will likely provide better circulation of heat than will a stove
located in a room adjacent to the larger living area.
5.2 Minimize Carbon Monoxide Emissions
Testing the F 500 to CSA B414.1-10 resulted in a carbon monoxide
emission rate of 112.22 grams per hour. There are aspects of CO
generation that you should be aware of. Most all means of
combustion produce CO, including wood fires. You can greatly
reduce CO levels by maintaining a well-established fire and
avoiding operation that produces a smouldering, smoky fire.
We highly recommend that a CO monitor (detector) be installed
in the same room as the stove. The monitor should be located
as far away as possible from the stove to avoid alerts when the
doors are opened.
5.3 Wood Fuel and Performance
The F 500 is designed to burn natural wood only. Higher
efficiencies and lower emissions generally result when burning
air-dried, seasoned hardwoods, as opposed to softwoods, green or
freshly cut hardwoods. Wood that has been air-dried for a period
of 6 to 14 months will provide the cleanest, most efficient heat.
Wood seasoned more than 2 years will burn too quickly to take
advantage of the stove’s low end efficiency strength.
A seasoned log will have check marks on the ends and be lighter
than an unseasoned log which will show little or no check marks.
We recommend using a moisture meter to determine the
moisture content of your wood. For purposes of home heating,
your fuel should have a moisture content between 12 - 20%.
Wood with higher moisture content will burn, however, very
inefficiently. Most of its heat value will be lost to driving water
out of the wood. Worse, that moisture will condense as creosote
in the relatively cool chimney flue, increasing the potential for
a chimney fire. Use of unseasoned wood defeats the purpose of
any modern wood-burning stove.
8
DO NOT BURN:
• Coal;
• Garbage;
• Synthetic fuel or logs;
• Material containg rubber, including tires;
• Material containing plastics;
• Waste petroleum products, asphalt products, paints,
paint thinners or solvents;
• Materials containing asbestos;
• Construction or demolitioin debris;
• Railroad ties or pressure-treated wood;
• Manure or animal remains;
• Salt water driftwood or other previously salt-water;
saturated materials;
• Unseasoned wood; or
• Paper products, cardboard, plywood, or particle board. (The
prohibition against burning these materials does not prohibit the
use of fire starters made from paper, cardboard, saw dust, wax or
similar substances for the purpose of starting a fire.)
The burning of any of these materials can result in the release of
toxic fumes, or render the heater ineffective and cause smoke.
Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal
lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start or “freshen-up” the fire.
Always keep such liquids away from the heater at all times.
NOTE: Avoid letting logs rest directly on the glass panel. The logs
should be spaced off of the glass enough to allow for proper air
flow within the firebox.
5.4 Air Flow and Control
Your F 500 is designed to support efficient combustion
and heat transfer by directing air through the stove in two
separate channels; Primary and Secondary. See figure 11.
Primary air is manually regulated by a lever and valve at the front
of the stove. The valve position controls the volume of primary air
entering the firebox and thereby affects fire intensity, heat output
and burn time. Primary air is directed to the main body of the fire
through air ports at the front of the stove. Separate manifolds
at each side also deliver pre-heated primary air at top of front
plate to create an ’air-wash” to help keep the viewing glass clean.
Secondary air allows combustion of volatile gas and other byproducts of primary combustion that would otherwise enter
the atmosphere unburned. This unregulated air is preheated as
it passes over the back of the stove and through a stainless steel
manifold at the top of the firebox. This additional hot oxygen
allows any unburned gasses to be burned inside the stove. The
action of secondary combustion can be readily seen through the
viewing glass a slow, rolling flames suspended over the main
fuel bed and smaller jets of flame extending from the secondary
manifold ports. At the same time, no smoke will be observed
exiting the chimney. This is evidence that the stove is operating at
the so-called ”sweet-spot” wherein optimum efficiency is realized.
When first starting or reviving the fire: the primary control
lever should be set to the far right position, which permits the
maximum amount of air into the stove. The greater the amount
of air entering the stove, the hotter and faster the fire will burn.
Moving the lever to the left reduces the airflow into the stove
which prolongs the fire at a lower heat output. See figure 11.
139681_R04 F 500 Oslo
Use a Stove-top Thermometer
Determining the primary air setting for the best overall
performance for your particular needs and installation will be
established over time through trial and error. Each installation
has unique characteristics that will affect stove performance.
You should use a stove-top thermometer to monitor the status
of the fire. Place the thermometer on the stove top, centered
two one side or the other. See fig. 12. Generally speaking, once
the stove temperature has reached 400°F - 600°F, the air control
may be set in a mid-range position to allow adequate oxygen to
support efficient combustion throughout the burn cycle.
5.5 Break-In Procedure
The Jøtul F 500 is constructed of cast iron and stove furnace
cement. Cast iron, while very durable, expands and contracts
as it is heated and cooled. This type of construction requires the
stove to be “broken-in” gradually so that thermal expansion does
not occur too quickly. The following steps describe the proper
break-in procedure for the Jøtul F 500 CB:
1. Light a small fire of newspaper and kindling. Only allow the
stove to reach a maximum surface temperature of 200°F (93°
C). Burn for approximately 1 hour.
2. Allow the stove to cool to room temperature.
3. Light a second fire, allowing the stove to reach a maximum
temperature of 300°F (149°C) for 1 hour.
4. Cool the stove to room temperature.
5. Light a third fire and gradually allow the stove to reach a
surface temperature of 400°F (204°C).
6. Cool stove to room temperature. This completes the “break-in”
procedure.
Note: Keep the stove under 400°F (204°C) surface temperature
during any “break-in fire”, with the exception of the last “breakin” fire. If the temperature exceeds 400°F, move the primary
air control lever all the way to the left to shut off the air supply
completely. It is normal that the stove top temperature will
continue to climb until the fuel burns down somewhat. Once
the fire is out and the stove has cooled to room temperature,
continue the break-in procedure. Never attempt to reduce the
temperature by removing burning logs from the fire.
NOTE: It is normal for a new, painted
stove to emit odor and visible smoke
during the break-in period fires. This is
caused by the high temperature paint curing and
will diminish with each fire. Opening a window or
door to provide additional ventilation will alleviate
this condition.
We recommend you do the following BEFORE
operating the appliance for the first time:
1. Ventilate: Open doors and windows and use
a fan to circulate fresh air throughout the room.
2. Vacate: The fumes are non-toxic, but can be
uncomfortable for babies, small children, pregnant
women, the elderly, pets, or anyone having
breathing difficulties.
1/21/17
5.6 Starting and Maintaining a Fire
Burn only solid wood directly on the bottom grate of the stove.
Do not elevate the fire in any way.
•
WARNING: THE ASH PAN DOOR MUST ALWAYS BE SECURELY
CLOSED WHEN THE STOVE IS IN OPERATION. BURNING THE
STOVE WITH THE ASH DOOR OPEN WILL PROMOTE UNEVEN
THERMAL EXPANSION AND CAN RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE
STOVE AND VOID YOUR WARRANTY.
Traditional Fire Building
1. With the primary air control lever in the full open position (to
the right), start with several sheets of crumbled newspaper
placed directly on the grate. On top of the newspaper, place
several pieces of small dry kindling (approx. 1” in diameter)
with two to three larger logs (approx. 3” to 5” in diameter) on
top.
2. Light the fire and close the door, slowly building the fire by
adding larger and larger logs. Be sure to follow the break-in
procedure before creating a hot fire that might damage the
stove.
3. Once the stove has reached a surface temperature range of
between 400° and 600°, (204°C -316°C), adjust the primary
air control lever as necessary to generate the heat output and
burn time desired.
Jøtul recommends use of a magnetic stove top thermometer
to monitor the surface temperature of the stove. The
optimum surface temperature range for the most efficient
burn is between 400° and 600° (204°C -316°C). for the best
locations to place a stove-top thermometer.
Top-Down Fire Building - See fig. 14.
Many people find this method to be superior to the traditional
method.
1. With the primary air control lever in the full open position (to
the right), place two short 1/4-split logs on the firebox floor,
perpendicular to the rear wall, about 6 inches apart.
2. Place kindling across the base logs.
3. Place one or two smaller logs on top of the kindling.
4. Place newspaper between the two bottom logs under the
kindling. Light the news paper and close the door. Continue
to add kindling and small logs as necessary to build the fire.
Keep the air control fully open until the fire is well-established.
WARNING: DO NOT OVER-FIRE THIS HEATER. IF ANY PART OF THE
STOVE OR CHIMNEY CONNECTOR GLOWS, YOU ARE OVER-FIRING.
A HOUSE FIRE OR SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE STOVE OR CHIMNEY
COULD RESULT.
ATTEMPTS TO ACHIEVE HEAT OUTPUT RATES THAT EXCEED HEATER
DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS CAN RESULT IN PERMANENT DAMAGE
TO THE HEATER.
9
139681_R04 F 500 Oslo 1/21/17
Creosote and Soot Formation and
the Need for Removal
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic
vapors which combine with expelled moisture to form creosote.
These creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney
flue of a slow burning fire. The creosote that accumulates in
the flue is highly flammable and is the fuel of chimney fires.
To prevent a chimney fire, the creosote needs to be removed
by sweeping the chimney and flue connector. The frequency
of sweeping will depend on how you operate your stove.
An accumulation of 1/4” or more on the sides of the flue or
connector is considered hazardous and should be removed.
In the event that creosote in your chimney or flue connector
ignites, the resulting fire is often accompanied by a roaring noise
and a crackling sound as flakes of burned creosote break loose. lf
you suspect you are having a chimney fire, immediately close the
primary air control and make sure the stove door is closed. Call
the fire department and get everyone safely out of the house.
Trying to extinguish the fire in the stove will not help. In fact it
can make the matter worse by allowing more oxygen through
the door, which then accellerates the fire in the chimney. When
the roaring and crackling has stopped, you should resist the
temptation to open the door and look at the fire. The fire may
have suffocated, but could rekindle when you open the door. After
a chimney fire, do not use your stove until the chimney and the
flue connector has been cleaned and inspected to ensure that
no damage has occured.
5.7 Adding Fuel
When reloading the stove while it is still hot and a bed of hot
embers still exists, follow this reloading procedure:
• Always wear gloves when tending to the stove.
• Push the air control lever to the full open position (far right).
• Wait a few seconds before opening the door.
• Use a stove tool or poker to distribute the hot embers equally
around the firebox and away from the air inlet ports at the
front center of the firebox floor.
• Load the fuel, usually with smaller logs first.
• Close the door, be sure to latch the door tightly.
• Wait 5 – 10 minutes before adjusting the primary air to the
desired heat output setting. (If you have at least a 2” thick
ember bed when reloading, it may be possible to close the
door and immediately adjust the air control setting).
10
139681_R04 F 500 Oslo
6.0 Maintenance
Regular maintenance will prolong the life of your stove and
ensure satisfactory performance.
6.1 Annual Stove Inspection
• Empty stove of all soot and ashes. Only use a vacuum for
this job if the vacuum is specifically designed for ashes.
• Inspect the stove seams. Use a utility light to inspect the
stove inside and out for cracks or leaks. Replace all cracked
parts and repair any cement leaks with furnace cement. For
your protection always wear safety gloves when handling
the ash pan.
6.2 Ash removal
Ash removal will be required periodically depending on how
frequently the stove is used. Conveniently, the Jøtul F 500 is
equipped with an ash pan assembly for easy ash removal, without
the need for opening the front doors.
The ash pan door is located under the front ashlip of the stove.
To open the ash door, rotate the door knob counterclockwise to
unlatch the door and clockwise to latch the door. Always use
stove gloves when handling the ash pan.
When the stove is in operation always close the ash door before
leaving to dispose of the ashes.
The ashes should be placed in a metal container equipped
with a tight sealing lid. The container should be placed on a
noncombustible floor or on the ground, well away from all
combustible materials, pending final disposal. If the ashes are
disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally dispersed, they
should be retained in the closed container until all cinders have
thoroughly cooled. Only use a vacuum for this job if the vacuum
is specifically designed for ashes.
It is advisable to keep a thin (1”) bed of ashes on the firebox floor
to help maintain a hot charcoal be.
Warning. Do not, at any time, operate this stove with the ash
pan door open. This condition will lead to overfiring and will
damage the stove. This damage is not covered under warranty.
Only empty the ash drawer before refueling, when the fire is
low or out. The ash door should be open only long enough to
empty the ash drawer and then securely closed. Inspect the
gasket on the ash pan door regularly and replace as necessary.
1/21/17
6.3 Chimney System
The Jøtul F 500 is designed to burn cleanly and efficiently when
used according to the guidelines in this manual. In order to
maintain proper performance, you should inspect the chimney
and chimney connector at the beginning of each heating season
and then every other month during the heating season. Clean the
chimney whenever creosote and fly ash accumulation exceeds
1/4 inch in any part of the system.
Chimney brushes are available from your local Jøtul dealer
or hardware supply store. Your dealer can also refer you to a
reputable, professional chimney sweep who will have all the
equipment to ensure a complete and proper job. Failure to keep
the chimney system free of creosote and build-up could result
in a serious chimney fire.
6.4 Enamel Care
• DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN HOT ENAMEL SURFACES. Clean
only cold enamel surfaces with a soft damp cloth and polish
with a clean dry cloth. Most stains can be removed with a
solution of baking soda and vinegar. Let this solution sit on
the stain for a minute or two before rubbing it dry with a
damp cloth. Organic cleaning commercial cleaning solutions, such as Citra-Solv®, can also be effective.
• DO NOT USE SOAPY OR ABRASIVE SOLUTIONS. These can
cause stains. Coffee, tea, and fruit jucies will also cause
stains.
• AVOID CONTACT WITH METAL OBJECTS. Trivets, kettles, or
pots, can damage the enamel.
6.5 Glass Care
Cleaning
On occasion it will be necessary to clean the carbon deposits
and fly ash off of the glass. If the carbon and fly ash are allowed
to remain on the glass for an extended period of time it could
eventually cause the glass to become etched and cloudy. Any
creosote that might develop on the glass will burn off during
the next hot fire.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN HOT GLASS. CLEAN ONLY
AT ROOM TEMPERATURE.
6.6 Glass Replacement
1. Remove the doors from the stove and place on a flat surface.
2. Carefully remove all of the glass clips from the inside of the
door.
3. Gently remove all pieces of the glass panel and gasketing.
4. Remove all remaining debris from the glass area using a
wire brush.
5. Apply a small bead of gasket/stove cement and the new
gasket. Do not overlap the ends of the gasket rope.
6. Important: Gradually tighten the glass clips in an alternating pattern as you would tighten the lugs on an automobile
wheel. See figure 13.
11
139681_R04 F 500 Oslo 1/21/17
6.7 Gaskets
Check door and glass panel gaskets for tightness. To check the
seal of the front door, close and latch the door on a dollar bill and
slowly try to pull the dollar bill free. If it can be easily removed,
the seal is too loose. Check several spots around the door, and
repeat the procedure on the ash pan door as well.
Gasket Replacement
1. Use pliers and a putty knife to remove the old gasket from
the door.
2. Thoroughly clean the channel with a wire brush.
3. Apply a small bead of cement to the channel.
4. Gently press the new gasket into the cement to seat it in the
channel. Close and latch the door and then reopen. Wipe any
excess cement squeezed out from around the gasket.

8.0 Accessories
Only use accessories that are specifically designed for the Jøtul
F 500.
Firescreen - 129172
The Jøtul F 500 has been approved for use as an open fireplace,
with front doors open. This feature is especially nice when the
ambience of a fire is desired. Some care should be taken when
operating the stove as a fireplace.
• Always have the firescreen in place, attached to the stove
front.
• Never over load the stove: For the best appearance burn in
the traditional three log configuration.
• Reminder, when burning the stove with the screen in place,
you are sacrificing efficiency for aesthetics, and you will be
consuming wood at a much faster rate.
Warning: Operate your Jøtul F 500 with the front doors fully open
and the firescreen in place or fully closed. Partially opened doors
may result in overfiring. Also, if doors are left partly open, gas
and flame may be drawn out of the stove opening, creating risks
from both fire and smoke.

Alternate Floor Protection
The easiest means of determining if a proposed alternate floor
material meets requirements listed in this manual is to follow
this procedure.
R-value = thermal resistance
k-value = thermal conductivity
C-value = thermal conductance
1. Convert the specification to R-value;
a. If R-value is given, no conversion is needed.
b. If k-value is given with a required thickness (T) in inches:
R=1/k X T.
c. If C-value is given: R=1/C.
2. Determine the R-value of the proposed alternate floor
protector.
a. Use the formula in Step 1 to convert values not expressed
as “R”.
b. For multiple layers, add R-values of each layer to
determine overall R-value.
3. If the overall R-value of the system is greater than the R-value
of the specified floor protector, the alternate is acceptable.
Example:
The specified floor protector should be 3/4” thick material with a
k-factor of 0.84. The proposed alternate is 4” brick with a C-factor
of 1.25 over 1/8” mineral board with a k-factor of 0.29.
Step A. Use formula above to convert specifications to R-value. R=1/k X T= 1/.84 X .75 = .893
Step B. Calculate R of proposed system.
4” brick of C-1.25, therefore
R brick = 1/C = 1/1.25 = 0.80.
1/8” mineral board of k = 0.29 therefore
R mineral board = 1/.29 X 0.125 = 0.431
Total R = R brick + R mineral board=
0.8 + 0.431=1.231
Step C. Compare proposed system R = 1.231 to specified R of 0.893.
Since R is greater than required, the system is acceptable.

Wood-burning Product
Warranty
Effective January 1, 2013
Exclusions and Limitations
This warranty policy applies to wood-burning products identified
by Jøtul and Scan trade names, as set forth below.
Notice: This warranty is void if installation or service is performed
by someone other than an authorized installer or service agency,
or if installation is not in conformance with the installation and
operating instructions contained in this owner’s manual or local
and/or national fire and building regulations. A listing of local
authorized installers, service agencies and gas suppliers can be
obtained from the National Fireplace Institute at http://www.
nficertified.org/.
A. LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY, parts only:
Jøtul North America Inc. (JØTUL) warrants, to the original retail
purchaser, that those baffle and air manifold components of
the Jøtul or Scan Stove or Fireplace Insert specified above will be
free of defects in material and workmanship for the life of the
product. This warranty is subject to the terms, exclusions and
limitations set forth below.
B. LIMITED FIVE YEAR WARRANTY - Cast Iron and Steel
Components:
JØTUL warrants, to the original retail purchaser, that those
components of the Jøtul or Scan Stove or Fireplace Insert specified
above will be free of defects in material and workmanship for a
period of five (5) years from the date of purchase. This warranty is
subject to the terms, exclusions and limitations set forth below.
C. LIMITED TWO YEAR WARRANTY - Enamel Finish:
JØTUL warrants, to the original retail purchaser, the enamel finish
on cast iron components of the Jøtul Stove or Fireplace Insert
specified above against peeling or fading for a period of two (2)
years from the date of purchase. This warranty is subject to the
terms, exclusions and limitations set forth below.
D. LIMITED ONE YEAR WARRANTY - Electrical Components
(blowers, thermostatic switches):
JØTUL warrants, to the original retail purchaser, that those
components of the Jøtul or Scan Stove or Fireplace Insert specified
above will be free of defects in material and workmanship for a
period of one (1) year from the date of purchase. This warranty is
subject to the terms, exclusions, and limitations set forth below:
JØTUL will repair or replace (including parts & labor), at its
option, any of the above components determined by JØTUL to be
covered by this warranty. You must, at your own expense, arrange
to deliver or ship the component to an authorized Jøtul or Scan
dealer and arrange for pickup or delivery of the component after
repairs have been made. If, upon inspection, JØTUL determines
that the component is covered by this warranty, the repair or
replacement will be made as set forth above. This warranty is
not transferable and is extended only to, and is solely for the
benefit of, the original retail purchaser of the Jøtul or Scan Stove
or Fireplace. This paragraph sets forth the sole remedy available
under this warranty in the event of any defect in the Jøtul or
Scan Stove or Fireplace.
The warranty period for any replaced component will be the
remaining unexpired portion of the warranty period for the
original component.
Please retain your dated sales receipt in your records as proof
of purchase.

This warranty does not cover the following:
1. Repair or replacement of parts that are subject to normal
wear and tear during the warranty period or to parts that may
require replacement in connection with normal maintenance.
These parts include paint, gaskets, burn plates, baffles,
air manifolds, firebricks, fire grates, or glass (glass is only
warranted against thermal breakage).
2. Damage due to incorrect installations not in conformance
with the installation instructions contained in this owner’s
manual or local and/or national fire and building regulations.
3. Damage, including damage to enamel surfaces, caused by
improper operation, over-firing, and/or misuse. Improper
operation, such as burning the stove with the ash door open,
can damage the stove. Over-firing occurs when any part of
the stove glows red. Over-firing can also be identified by
warped plates, rust-colored cast iron, paint pigment that has
turned dusty white, or bubbling, cracking and discoloration of
the enamel finish. Misuse includes, without limitation, use
that is not in conformance with the operating instructions
contained in this owner’s manual.
4. Damage due to service performed by an installer or service
agency, unless otherwise agreed to in writing by JØTUL.
5. Damage caused by unauthorized modification, use or repair.
6. Costs incurred by travel time and/or loss of service.
7. Labor or other costs associated with the repair of components
beyond the warranty period.
8. Damage incurred while the Jøtul or Scan Stove or Fireplace
is in transit.
IN NO EVENT SHALL JØTUL, ITS PARENT COMPANY, SHAREHOLDERS,
AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS OR REPRESENTATIVES
BE LIABLE OR RESPONSIBLE TO YOU FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT,
INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER SIMILAR
DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOST PROFITS,
LOST SALES, INJURY TO PERSON OR PROPERTY, OR DAMAGES TO
A STRUCTURE OR ITS CONTENTS, ARISING UNDER ANY THEORY
OF LAW WHATSOEVER. ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING
THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHERWISE, ARE LIMITED
IN DURATION TO THE LENGTH OF THIS WRITTEN WARRANTY.
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, JØTUL MAKES NO
ORAL, WRITTEN OR OTHER WARRANTY WITH RESPECT TO JØTUL
OR SCAN STOVES OR FIREPLACES.
139681_R04 F 500 Oslo
1/21/17
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental
or consequential damages, or limitations on the length of implied
warranties. Therefore, the above exclusions or limitations may
not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights,
and you may have other rights, which vary from state to state.
JØTUL reserves the right to discontinue, modify or change the
materials used to produce the Jøtul or Scan Stove or Fireplace.
JØTUL shall have the right to replace any defective component
with substitute components determined by JØTUL to be of
substantially equal quality and price.
The dollar value of JØTUL’s liability for breach of this warranty
shall be limited exclusively to the cost of furnishing a replacement
component. JØTUL shall not in any event be liable for the cost
of labor expended by others in connection with any defective
component. Any costs or expenses beyond those expressly
assumed by JØTUL under the terms of this warranty shall be
the sole responsibility of the owner(s) of the Jøtul or Scan Stove
or Fireplace.
No dealer, distributor, or other person is authorized to modify,
augment, or extend this limited warranty on behalf of JØTUL.
NO MODIFICATION OR CHANGE TO THIS WARRANTY WILL
BE EFFECTIVE UNLESS IT IS MADE IN A WRITTEN DOCUMENT
MANUALLY SIGNED BY AN AUTHORIZED OFFICER OF JØTUL.
An authorized installer may have been provided with certain
information related particularly to the Jøtul or Scan Stove or
Fireplace; however, no authorized installer or other person who
may service the appliance is an agent of JØTUL. No inference
should be made that JØTUL has tested, certified, or otherwise
pronounced any person as qualified to install or service the
appliance. JØTUL shall not be liable or otherwise responsible for
any error or omission by a person installing or servicing a Jøtul
or Scan Stove or Fireplace.
If you believe your Jøtul or Scan Stove or Fireplace is defective,
you should contact your nearest authorized Jøtul or Scan dealer,
who will process a warranty claim. IN ORDER TO QUALIFY FOR
WARRANTY COVERAGE, JØTUL MUST RECEIVE NOTICE OF A
POSSIBLE DEFECT WITHIN SIXTY (60) DAYS OF THE DATE THE
DEFECT IS FIRST DISCOVERED, OR REASONABLY COULD HAVE
BEEN DISCOVERED.
