Venting Installation
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: Failure to follow these instructions will void the warranty.
NOTICE: Do not seal termination
cap to vent pipe. Cap must be
removable for vent inspection
and maintenance.
Installation Precautions
Consult local building codes before beginning
installation. The installer must make sure to
select the proper vent system for installation. Before installing vent kit, the installer
must read this fireplace manual and vent kit
instructions.
Only a qualified service person should install
venting system. The installer must follow
these safety rules:
• 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
• Installation of any component part not
manufactured or approved by FMI PRODUCTS, LLC
• Installation other than as instructed by
these instructions
56131J
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 gas appliance must
use a separate vent system. Do
not use common vent systems.
WARNING: Horizontal sections of this vent system require
a minimum clearance of 2" from
the top of the pipe and 1" minimum to the sides and bottom.
Vertical sections of this system
require a minimum of 1" clearance to combustible materials
on all sides of the pipe.
INSTALLATION PLANNING
There are two basic types of direct-vent
installation:
• Horizontal Termination
• Vertical Termination
It is important to select the proper length
of vent pipe for the type of termination you
choose. It is also important to note the wall
thickness.
For Horizontal Termination: Select the
amount of vertical rise desired. The horizontal
run of venting must have 1/4" rise for every
12" of run towards the termination.
WARNING: Never run the
vent downward as this may
cause excessive temperatures
which could cause a fire.
You may use one or two 90° elbows in this
vent configuration. See Horizontal Termination Configurations on page 15.
For Vertical Termination: Measure distance
from fireplace flue outlet to ceiling. Add ceiling
thickness, vertical rise in an attic or second
story, and allow for sufficient vent height
above roof line. You may use one or two 90°
elbows in this vent configuration. See Vertical
Termination Configurations on page 16.
www.fmiproducts.com
11
Venting Installation
Continued
Note: You may use two 45° elbows in place of
a 90° elbow. You must follow rise to run ratios
when using 45° elbows.
For two-story applications, firestops are
required at each floor level. If an offset is
needed in the attic, additional pipe and elbows
will be required.
You may use a chase with a vent termination
with exposed pipe on exterior of house. See
Installing Vent System in a Chase.
Your FMI PRODUCTS, LLC direct-vent
fireplace has been tested for a minimum 3'
rise with a maximum 11" wall thickness. Any
horizontal application longer than 12" must
provide a minimum of 1 foot of vertical rise for
every 3 feet of horizontal run. The maximum
horizontal run is 20' with 8' vertical rise (see
Installation for Horizontal Termination). The
maximum vertical run is 30' (see Installation
for Vertical Termination, page 16).
WARNING: Do not recess
vent terminal into a wall or siding. This is a fire hazard.
Snorkel terminations are available for
terminations requiring a vertical rise on
the exterior of building (see Figures 15
and 16). Snorkel kits are available for
rigid pipe applications only to provide a
14" rise and a 36" rise (see page 19).
Follow the same installation procedures
used for standard horizontal terminations.
If installing snorkel termination to raise
vent termination from below grade level
such as in a basement installation, you
must provide proper drainage to prevent
water from entering snorkel termination
(see Figure 16). Do not back fill around
snorkel termination.
Installing Vent System in a Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to
enclose venting that runs along the outside
of a building.
NOTICE: Treatment of firestops
and construction of the chase
may vary from building type to
building type. These instructions are not substitutes for the
requirements of local building
codes. You must follow all local
building codes.
Note: When installing in a chase, you should
insulate the chase as you would the outside
walls of your home. This is especially important in cold climates. Minimum clearance
between vent pipes and combustible materials
such as insulation is 1".
After framing chase (see Framing on page
7) install vent system by following installation
instructions.

Twist-lock Procedure: Female ends
of pipes and fittings have four locking
lugs (indentations). These lugs will slide
straight into matching slots on male ends
of adjacent pipes and fittings. Push pipe
sections together and twist one section
clockwise approximately one-quarter turn
until sections are fully locked. See Figure
17. Note: Horizontal runs of vent must
be supported every three feet. Use wall
straps for this purpose.
3. Attach vent pipe assembly to fireplace using twist lock connections for rigid pipe or
clamp method for flex pipe. Set fireplace
in front of its permanent location to insure
minimum clearances. Mark wall for a 10 3/4"
square hole (for noncombustible material
such as masonry block or concrete, a 8 1/2"
diameter hole is acceptable). See Figure
18. The center of hole should line up with
center line of rigid vent pipe. Cut a 10 3/4"
x 10 3/4" square hole through combustible
exterior wall (8 1/2" diameter hole if noncombustible). Frame as necessary.
4. Three types of vent caps are available
for horizontal terminations. Two square
terminals are available; one for rigid pipe
applications and one for flex pipe applications. A round vent termination with
a slip fit connection is also provided for
rigid pipe applications to be used when
a wall thickness or off spacing must be
accommodated. Each may be purchased
as a kit that includes a 45° elbow and a
firestop that accommodates a square or
round termination (see Parts List for Venting Kits and Components, page 19).
Noncombustible Exterior Wall: Apply a
bead of non-hardening mastic around outside edge of vent cap. Position vent cap
in center of the 8 1/2" hole on the exterior
wall with arrow on vent cap pointing up.
Attach vent cap with four wood screws
provided (see Figure 19). Note: Replace
wood screws with appropriate fasteners
for stucco, brick, concrete, or other types
of siding.

WARNING: Do not recess
vent termination in to any wall.
This will cause a fire hazard.
Combustible Exterior Wall: For vinyl
siding, stucco, or wood exteriors, a siding
standoff must be installed between vent
cap and exterior wall. Siding standoff
prevents excessive heat from damaging
siding materials. Siding materials 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 square hole and attach to exterior wall with wood screws provided (see
Figure 20). Siding standoff must sit flush
against exterior fascia material.
5. Connecting Vent Cap with Horizontal
Vent Pipe: Slide wall firestop over vent
pipe before connecting horizontal run to
vent cap (see Figure 21).

6. Make final connection to vent terminal.
Flush or recessed with short vent system: Vent system may be pre-sized. Check
for final fit and slide unit into framing with
firestop in place. This is helpful when using
rigid pipe and round vent termination. Vent
may be preconnected and slipped through
firestop. Make sure 45° connection at unit
is tight and does not come loose before
unit is nailed to framing.
Square vent or long vent configuration:
Vent pipe must be manipulated at outer
end to make final connection. Manually
secure pipe inside open framing. If this
is a retrofit installation in an inaccessible
space, you may have to secure outer
end of vent pipe with wall straps and tap
screws at outer end.
When using tap screws with rigid pipe,
be sure that screws do not penetrate
inner pipe. These procedures may also
be followed by flexible pipe installations.
To use flexible pipe, vent must be drawn
through end firestop, cut back to 6"-8" to
permit easy connection of flex termination
and connection must be slipped back into
and secured to installation. You must use
an adequate number of spring spacers at
ends and closest bend to termination to
prevent kinks or collapsing on the fire. Do
not use screws with flex pipe. Vent system
must be code inspected and released
before adding dry wall or other surface
treatments.

Flat Ceiling Installation
1. Cut a 12 1/2" square hole in the ceiling using locating hole as a center point. Opening should be framed to 12 1/2" x 12 1/2"
inside dimensions, as shown in Figure
18 on page 13, 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. The firestop should be installed with
no less than three nails per side (see
Figure 26).
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 17, page 13).
3. Cut a hole in roof using locating hole as
a center point. (Cover any exposed open
vent pipes before cutting hole in roof.) The
12 1/2" x 12 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 18 on page 13.
If area above is an attic, install firestop
above framed hole.
If area above is a living space, install
firestop below framed hole.

Continued
4. Connect a section of pipe and extend
up through hole. If an offset is needed to
avoid obstructions, you must support vent
pipe every 3 feet. Use wall straps for this
purpose (see Figure 24, page 15). Whenever possible, use 45° elbows instead of
90° elbows. The 45° elbow offers less
restriction to the flow of flue gases and
intake air.
5. Place flashing over pipe section(s) extending through roof. Apply a bead of
silicone or roof sealer to the bottom flange
of flashing and secure base of flashing
to roof and framing with roofing nails. Be
sure roofing material overlaps top edge of
flashing as shown in Figure 24, page 15.
There must be a 1" clearance from vent
pipe to combustible materials.
6. Continue to add pipe sections until the
height of vent cap meets the minimum
building code requirements described in
Figure 14, page 10.
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-draft condition (see Figure 24, page
15). Increasing vent height may solve this
problem.
7. Apply a bead of sealer to the upper edge
of flashing collar. Slide storm collar over
pipe and down to top edge of flashing.
Apply a second bead of silicone or roof
sealer around remaining seam of storm
collar. Twist-lock vent cap onto last section
of vent pipe. Finish sealing flange around
roofing material with roofing sealer.
Note: If vent pipe passes through any occupied areas above the first floor, including
storage spaces and closets, you must enclose
pipe. You may frame and sheetrock enclosure
with standard construction material. Make
sure and meet the minimum allowable clearances to combustibles. Do not fill any required
air spaces with insulation.
Cathedral Ceiling Installation
1. Remove shingles or other roof covering as
necessary to cut rectangular hole for support box. Mark outline of cathedral ceiling
support box on roof sheathing using the
locating hole as a center point.
2. Cut hole 1/8" larger than the support box
outline (see Figure 27).
3. Lower support box through hole in roof
until bottom of box extends at least 2"
below ceiling (see Figure 27). Align support box vertically and horizontally using
a level. Temporarily tack support box in
place through inside walls and into roof
sheathing.
4. Using tin snips, cut support box from top
corners down to roofline and fold resulting flaps over roof sheathing (see Figure
28). Apply a bead of non-hardening mastic around top edges of support box to
make a seal between box and roof. Nail
in place with roofing nails. Remove any
combustible material that might be inside
of support box.
5. Complete cathedral ceiling installation by
following the same procedures outlined in
steps 2 through 7 for Flat Ceiling Installation, page 16.

High altitude installation
Your FMI PRODUCTS, LLC direct-vent
fireplace has been tested and approved for
elevations from 0-2,000 feet (USA).
Fireplaces for High Altitude (models ending
in -HA) are for installation above 4,000 feet
only. These fireplaces are equipped with parts
specific for higher altitudes. IMPORTANT:
These fireplaces can NOT be converted to
propane/LP gas.
When installing a non-high altitude fireplace at
an elevation above 2,000 feet (USA), you may
need to decrease the input rating by changing
the existing burner orifice to a smaller size.
Reduce input 4% for each 1,000 feet above
sea level. Check with your local gas company
for proper orifice size identification.
IMPORTANT: For horizontal installations
above 2,000 feet, it is recommened that a
12" extension pipe be added before starter

Any noncombustible material may be used
for facing (glass, tile, brick, etc.) as long as
the proper clearances are observed (see
Clearances, page 6). IMPORTANT: Louvered
openings must not be obstructed, and upper
and lower panels must remain removable for
servicing. Use only heat resistant, noncombustible mortar or adhesive when securing
facing material.
Note: Combustible material, such as wood,
that has been fireproofed is not considered
noncombustible.
Pilot/Electrode Assembly Adjustment
The pilot assembly is factory preset for the
proper flame height. Alteration to these settings may have occurred during shipping
and handling. If this is the case, some minor
adjustment may be necessary and should be
done by a qualified technician. To access pilot
assembly, glass door must be opened. The
proper settings for thermopile height should
be at a distance of 3/8" to 1/2" from pilot flame
as shown in Figure 52.
The electrode is installed at the factory for
proper positioning. However, alterations to
position may have occurred due to shipping
and handling. These settings may need
adjustment and must be done by a qualified
technician. The correct position and height is
as shown in Figure 53.

Burner Flame Adjustment
The air shutter, located at the base of the
main burner (see Figure 54), has been factory preset to the proper air-to-gas ratio which
results in an even, clean burning flame across
the burner (see Figure 55). If readjustment is
necessary, you can restore the proper air-togas ratio by loosening the air shutter screw
and rotating the air shutter until the proper
flame setting is achieved (the shutter's normal
setting is fully open. Do not forget to retighten
the air shutter screw.

Operating Guidelines and Maintenance
When lit for the first time, appliance may emit
a slight odor for about 16 - 24 hours. This is
normal and is due to the “curing” of logs and
“burn-in” of internal paints and lubricants used
in the manufacturing process. Keep compartments, logs, burners, and area surrounding
logs clean by vacuuming or brushing at least
twice a year. Temporary removal of log set
may ease cleaning of burner and pilot assembly. In cleaning, take care not to alter pilot
or burner location. Be sure appliance is cool
before each maintenance session.
CAUTION: The appliance and
logs can get very hot - Handle
only when cool.
WARNING: Turn off gas and
wall switch before servicing
appliance. Any safety screen or
guard removed for servicing the
appliance must be replaced prior
to operating the appliance.
WARNING: Make certain
wires and gas lines are not
touching the underside of the
firebox.
56131J
WARNING: Children and
adults should be alerted to the
hazards of high surface temperatures, and to stay away from
the appliance to avoid burns or
clothing ignition. Young children
should be carefully supervised
when they are in the same room
as the appliance.
WARNING: Have a qualified
agency periodically inspect the
vent system at the start of each
heating season, for any obstruction which may hinder its normal
operation. Never obstruct the flow
of combustion and ventilation air.
Keep the front of the appliance clear
of all obstacles and materials.
CAUTION: Label all wires
prior to disconnection when
servicing controls. Wiring errors
can cause improper and dangerous operation.
