INSTALLER GUIDE
1. SAFETY
This product uses fuel effect pieces containing Refractory Ceramic Fibres
(RCF), which are man-made vitreous silicate fibres. Excessive exposure to
these materials may cause irritation to eyes, skin and respiratory tract.
Consequently, it is important to take care when handling these articles to
ensure that the release of dust is kept to a minimum. To ensure that the release
of fibres from these RCF articles is kept to a minimum, during installation and
servicing we recommend that you use a HEPA filtered vacuum to remove any
dust and soot accumulated in and around the stove before and after working on
the stove. When replacing these articles we recommend that the replaced items
are not broken up, but are sealed within a heavy duty polythene bag, clearly
labelled as RCF waste. RCF waste is classed as a stable, non-reactive
hazardous waste and may be disposed at a landfill licensed to accept such
waste. Protective clothing is not required when handling these articles, but we
recommend you follow the normal hygiene rules of not smoking, eating or
drinking in the work area and always wash your hands before eating or
drinking. This appliance does not contain any component manufactured from
asbestos or asbestos related products.
Installer
Valor stoves are efficient appliances giving off convected, conducted and radiated
heat. All the surfaces of the stove - except the controls - are working surfaces and
become hot in use. They must not be touched or have any combustible objects or
materials placed on or near them. A fire guard complying with BS 8423 should be
fitted for the protection of young children, the elderly, the infirm or pet animals.
The appliance is fitted with a flue safety device. If the appliance closes down after a
period of operation for no apparent reason, the consumer should be informed to stop
using the appliance until the installation and appliance have been thoroughly
checked. Under no circumstances should the flue safety device be altered or
bypassed in any way. Only a genuine manufacturers replacement part should be
fitted.
Before continuing any further with the installation of this appliance please read the
following guide to manual handling:
- The lifting weight of this appliance is 55 kg. We therefore recommend that two
people should be sufficient to lift the stove. If fitting or moving the stove alone we
recommend the use of suitable lifting apparatus.
- When lifting always keep your back straight. Bend your legs and not your back.
- Avoid twisting at the waist. It is better to reposition your feet.

5. GENERAL INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS
Regulations, Standards and Law.
The installation must be in accordance with these instructions.
For the user’s protection, in the United Kingdom it is the law that all gas appliances
are installed by competent persons in accordance with the current edition of the Gas
Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations. Failure to install the appliance correctly
could lead to prosecution. GAS SAFE REGISTER and CORGI require their members
to work to recognised standards.
In the United Kingdom the installation must also be in accordance with all the relevant
parts of local regulations.
BS 5440 Part 1
BS 5440 Part 2
BS 4543 Part 2
BS 5871 Part 1
BS 6891
BS 8303
In England and Wales, the current edition of the Building Regulations issued by the
Department of the Environment and the Welsh Office.
In Scotland, the current edition of the Building Standards (Scotland) Regulations
issued by the Scottish Executive.
In Northern Ireland, the current edition of the Building regulations (Northern Ireland)
issued by the Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland.
In the republic of Ireland the installation must be carried out by a competent person
and also conform to the relevant parts of:
a) The current edition of IS 813 “Domestic Gas Installations”
b) All relevant national and local rules in force.
Where no specific instructions are given, reference should be made to the relevant
British Standard Code of Practice.
The Hearth.
The appliance must be mounted on a non-combustible hearth (N.B. conglomerate
marble hearths are considered as non-combustible). The hearth material must be at
least 12mm thick. The hearth must protrude at least 150mm (6”) in front of the stove
body. In most buildings with solid concrete floors this requirement will be met by the
floor itself.

INSTALLER GUIDE
Clearances.
Clearances from combustible and non-combustible materials must be at least those
shown in figure 6.
IMPORTANT: Reducing the clearance distance at the rear of the stove (especially
with non-combustible surfaces) can result in the stove switching off. This occurs when
the thermal switch operates due to insufficient cool air.
Figure 6. Dimensions and Clearances
Flue / Chimney.
- The stove is approved for use with 102mm (4 inch) diameter insulated Selkirk
insta - lock gas vent.
- The spigot is designed to be compatible with a selkirk 4 SIL - DH draft hood
connector. The inner sleeve will require reducing in length so that it protrudes 25mm
below the outer sleeve (See figure 7).
- Before you install the stove make sure the
chimney flue outlet is correctly positioned to align
with the flue outlet on the stove and that the
chimney is in good condition. If not, a chimney liner
must be installed or a suitable class 2 gas flue
used. A draught is necessary to ensure the products
of combustion are fully evacuated. Connect and
seal the stove flue collar to the chimney using full
depth of collar. The flue must have a minimum
effective height of 3 metres (10ft), however to, to
Figure 7.

GDC Group Ltd. 2014
Page 12
INSTALLER GUIDE
ensure optimum performance we recommend 3.66 metres (12ft) or higher. The flue
must be free of obstruction and any dampers must be fixed in a permanently open
position. Ensure that the chimney is not closed and that it has been swept prior to the
stove being installed. Make sure that rain, birds or any foreign bodies cannot get into
the chimney and cause blockage or damage. This problem can normally be overcome
by fitting an approved Gas Cowl. It is essential to the effective running of your stove
that the chimney draws properly and allows the products of combustion to escape.
Ventilation.
- Normal adventitious ventilation is usually sufficient to satisfy the ventilation
requirements of this appliance. In GB reference should be made to BS5871 Part 1
and in IE reference should be made to the current edition of IS 813 “ Domestic gas
installations” which make clear the conditions that must be met to demonstrate that
sufficient ventilation is available.
- An extractor fan may only be used in the same room as this appliance, or in any
area from which ventilation for the appliance is taken, if it does not affect the safe
performance of the appliance. Note the spillage test requirements detailed further on
in this manual. If the fan is likely to affect the appliance, the appliance must not be
installed unless the fan is permanently disconnected.
Location.
- This appliance must not be installed in a private garage or any room, which contains
a bath, or shower or where steam is regularly present.
Propane gas.
- Propane gas appliances must not be installed in a cellar, basement or other room
which is built entirely below ground level
(See Gas Safety (Installation and use) Regulations).
Gas connection.
- A nut and olive are provided for an 8mm pipe inlet connection to the elbow at the
bottom front of the appliance. The elbow can be rotated to allow a connection from
any direction. The elbow includes a valve for isolating the gas supply.
- The supply pipe must be rigid material. Flexible pipe must not be used.
- Note: Prior to connecting the gas supply it is advisable to blow out the gas
supply so that any dirt which may be present in the pipe is cleared and cannot
enter the gas valve or pilot burner and so cause a blockage
- With the supply connected pressure check the installation pipework for gas
soundness. In the United Kingdom check in accordance with the current edition of
BS6891. In the Republic of Ireland check in accordance with the rules in force.
Securing the stove.
The stove is supplied with two wood screws and wall plugs. Secure the stove in place
through the holes in the rear feet.

INSTALLER GUIDE
Fitting the ceramic fuel effect.
The installer and owner guide for the ceramic fuel effect is supplied with the ceramic
fuel effect. It is important that the installer guide for the ceramic fuel effect be placed
inside or attached to this guide and handed to the customer following completion of
the ‘Final review’ section.
6. OPERATING THE STOVE
Pre-lighting checks.
- Ensure all the building work and flue sealing is complete.
- Ensure the down draught deflector plate is fitted correctly.
- Ensure all the ceramic fuel effect pieces are correctly placed.
- Ensure that the stove door is closed and secured. Lock the stove door with the
locking bolt.
- Ensure that the stove door is completely sealed.
Lighting the burner.
- If closed, open the isolating valve at the inlet
elbow.
- Depress the control knob and rotate it SLOWLY
anticlockwise to the pilot ignition position. A 'click'
will be heard as the integral piezo operates.
- Turn the control knob clockwise to the 'Off'
position. Repeat this operation until a flame
appears at the pilot. The pilot can be seen by
looking through the space in the left hand front of
the fuel effect (See figure 8). There may be a
delay before the pilot lights due to air being
purged from the system. When a flame appears
at the pilot keep the control knob depressed and
hold the pilot ignition position for five seconds.
When the control knob is released the pilot flame Figure 8.
should remain lit.
Operating the burner.
- When the pilot burner is operating properly, gradually turn the control knob anticlockwise to 'HIGH' (Depress the knob slightly to get past the pilot ignition position).
The main burner should now light. Depress the control knob slightly to release from
the 'HIGH' position and turn back (clockwise) to 'LOW'. While turning, the burner
flames should gradually become lower but remain alight. Depress the control knob
slightly to release from the 'LOW' position and turn back (clockwise) to the ‘Pilot
ignition’ position. The main burner should extinguish but the pilot should remain alight.

GDC Group Ltd. 2014
Page 14
INSTALLER GUIDE
Depress the control knob slightly and turn back (clockwise) to turn OFF.
This will extinguish the pilot.
Inlet pressure check.
The appliance is pre-set to give the correct
heat input at the inlet pressure shown in
section 2 of this manual. No adjustment is
necessary.
- Check the inlet pressure by fitting a
pressure gauge at the test point. The test
point is on the inlet ‘T’ connector (See
figure 9). Check the pressure with the
appliance alight and set at maximum
output.
Figure 9.
- After checking, turn off the appliance.
Remove the pressure gauge and replace the test point sealing screw.
- Relight the appliance. Turn to the maximum output position and test around the
sealing screw for gas soundness with a suitable leak detection fluid.
Check for spillage.
- Close all doors and windows in the room containing the appliance.
- Light the appliance and turn the control knob to the ‘HIGH’ position.
- Leave the appliance on for five minutes.
- A smoke match should be placed close to base of the diverter box. The installation
is satisfactory if the smoke is drawn into the appliance/ flue way. Do not use a lighted
match or a naked flame.
If the smoke is not drawn into the appliance leave the appliance alight at the
maximum setting for a further ten minutes and then repeat the test. If the flue
restrictor is fitted then remove the restrictor and repeat the above test. If the smoke is
still not drawn into the appliance then disconnect the appliance and seek expert
advice.
- If the above test is satisfactory open all internal connecting doors, hatches, etc. in
the room. Keep all doors and windows that open to the outside of the building closed.
Recheck for spillage as above. If an extractor fan is installed in the same room as the
appliance or a connecting room, check that spillage does not occur with the fan
operating and all doors and other openings between the fan and the appliance open.
If the smoke is drawn into the appliance, continue with the installation. If the test is
not satisfactory disconnect the appliance and advise the customer of the cause
of failure.
Flame supervision and spillage monitoring system.
The pilot unit incorporates a system that will automatically shut off the gas supply if
the pilot flame goes out. Check that the system operates properly as follows;
©
GDC Group Ltd. 2014
Page 15
INSTALLER GUIDE
- Light the appliance. Set at the “HIGH” position and leave for one minute.
- Turn back to “OFF” to extinguish the pilot. Note the time when the pilot goes out.
Listen for a snap sound at the gas tap. Note the time when the sound is heard.
This sound is caused by an electromagnetic valve shutting off the gas supply through
the tap. The valve is located in the body of the tap. The valve should operate within
60 seconds of the pilot going out. If the valve does not operate within this time limit
do not allow the appliance to be used until the fault has been corrected.
This monitoring system must not be adjusted, bypassed or put out of
operation.
This monitoring system, or any of its parts, must only be exchanged using
Valor Fires authorised parts.
7. FINAL REVIEW AND SERVICING
Final Review.
- Hand the literature pack with this guide to the customer.
- Visually inspect the appliance. Clean off any marks incurred during installation.
- Advise the customer how to operate the appliance. Point out that lighting instruction
details are on the metal plate attached to the burner at the bottom of the appliance.
- Explain to the customer that the appliance has a flame failure & spillage monitoring
system. Point out the explanation of this system shown in the owner guide under
“Operating your stove”. Advise that if the stove goes out for any reason, wait at least
ten minutes before relighting. Stress that if the monitoring system repeatedly shuts off
the stove, the appliance should be switched off and a specialist should be consulted.
- Advise the customer that they should read their owner guide before operating the
stove and always follow the advice in the section headed “Cleaning your stove”.
- Stress that no extra ceramic fuel effect pieces must be added over and above
those supplied with the appliance and that any replacements must only be the
authorised spares. Warn that ignoring this advice could cause incomplete
clearance of the products of combustion with consequent health hazards.
- Advise the customer that the appliance will operate to its maximum potential if the
flue is primed during the first 20 – 30 minutes of use. To do this, simply turn the
control knob to its highest setting. This will also burn off any carbon deposits that may
have formed during previous use.
If using the appliance for long periods it is beneficial to change between settings. This
will also help to remove any carbon deposits that may form during use.
- Recommend that the appliance should be serviced by a competent person at least
annually.
- If the appliance is in premises in the United Kingdom occupied by a tenant, point
out that by law a landlord must have any gas appliance, flue and pipework which is
situated in a tenant’s premises checked for safety at least every 12 months.
- Explain to the customer that when operating the stove for the first time, some
vapours may be given off which may cause a slight odour and could possibly set off

any smoke alarms in the immediate vicinity. These vapours are quite normal with new
appliances. They are totally harmless and will disappear after approximately twelve
hours use.
- Inform the customer that the Serial number for the appliance is located on the
metal plate attached to the burner at the bottom of the appliance underneath
the burner module.
Servicing.
- This product uses fuel effect pieces containing Refractory Ceramic Fibres
(RCF), which are man-made vitreous silicate fibres. Excessive exposure to
these materials may cause irritation to eyes, skin and respiratory tract.
Consequently, it is important to take care when handling these articles to
ensure that the release of dust is kept to a minimum. To ensure that the release
of fibres from these RCF articles is kept to a minimum, during installation and
servicing we recommend that you use a HEPA filtered vacuum to remove any
dust and soot accumulated in and around the stove before and after working on
the stove. When replacing these articles we recommend that the replaced items
are not broken up, but are sealed within a heavy duty polythene bag, clearly
labelled as RCF waste. RCF waste is classed as a stable, non-reactive
hazardous waste and may be disposed at a landfill licensed to accept such
waste. Protective clothing is not required when handling these articles, but we
recommend you follow the normal hygiene rules of not smoking, eating or
drinking in the work area and always wash your hands before eating or
drinking. This appliance does not contain any component manufactured from
asbestos or asbestos related products.
- Always turn off the gas supply and allow to cool completely before commencing any
servicing.
- Check that the thermal switch is correctly located in the diverter box (See figure 4
on page 10).
- Check that the appliance is clean and that no matter is blocking the burner or pilot
which may cause imperfect flames or prevent a correct electrode spark.
- After servicing, make sure that the ceramic fuel effect pieces are replaced
correctly as described in the installer and owner guide supplied with the ceramic
fuel effect. The ceramic fuel effect guide may have been placed inside or attached to
this guide.

OWNER GUIDE
Do always use a fireguard complying with BS 8423 for the protection of young
children, the elderly, the infirm or pet animals. The cast iron top, front, rear and sides
of this stove are considered to be working surfaces and so will become very hot when
in use. Always take care when using this appliance.
Do wait three minutes before attempting to relight if the gas stove is switched off or
the flames are extinguished for any reason (Your gas stove is fitted with a safety
device that will automatically shut off the gas supply to the gas stove, if for any
reason, the flame goes out. If this operates then wait at least ten minutes before
operating the stove).
Do get advice about the suitability of any wall covering near your gas stove. Soft wall
coverings (e.g. embossed vinyl, etc.) which have a raised pattern are easily affected
by heat. They may, therefore, scorch or become discoloured when close to a heating

OPERATING YOUR STOVE
PLEASE NOTE
When operating your stove for the first time, some vapours may be given off which may
cause a slight odour and could possibly set off any smoke alarms in the immediate
vicinity. These vapours are quite normal with new appliances. They are totally harmless
and will disappear after approximately twelve hours use.
This stove is supplied with ceramic fuel effect to simulate a real stove. After some
use, these may change colour. This is quite normal.
The Flame Sensing & Flue Blockage Safety System.
For your safety, this appliance is fitted with a flue blockage safety device that will shut
down the appliance in the event of abnormal flue conditions. This device is NOT a
substitute for an independently mounted Carbon Monoxide detector.
The device will also automatically shut off the gas supply to the gas stove if the pilot
flame goes out for any reason. If the device starts to shut off the gas frequently,
get expert advice.
The system incorporates a probe that senses that the heat from the pilot flame is
correct. If this probe is cool, the device will prevent any gas flow unless the control
knob is kept depressed at the PILOT/IGN position.
If the safety system operates and the flames go out wait at least ten minutes before
attempting to relight.
Always make sure that the door is securely closed before lighting.
If the gas valve is operated to turn the stove off always wait at least three minutes
before attempting to relight.
Always make sure that the door is securely closed before lighting.
Lighting the burner.
- Depress the control knob and rotate it anticlockwise to the pilot ignition position
(See figure 2). A 'click' will be heard as
the integral piezo operates. A flame
should appear at the pilot. Keep the
control knob depressed and hold the
pilot ignition position for five seconds.
When the control knob is released the
pilot flame should remain lit. If a flame
does not appear at the pilot then turn
the control knob clockwise to the 'OFF'
position and repeat the above.

Operating the burner.
- When the pilot burner is operating properly, gradually turn the control knob anticlockwise to 'HIGH' position. (Depress the knob slightly to get past the pilot ignition
position). The main burner should now light.
Depress the control knob slightly to release from the 'HIGH' position and turn back
(clockwise) to 'LOW'. While turning, the burner flames should gradually become lower
but remain alight. Depress the control knob slightly to release from the 'LOW' position
and turn back (clockwise) to the Pilot ignition position. The main burner should
extinguish but the pilot should remain alight. Depress the control knob slightly and
turn back (clockwise) to turn OFF. This will extinguish the pilot.
While cooling, the ceramic fuel effects may make some crackling noises. This is quite
normal.
If the flames go out while setting the control, repeat the full lighting
Note i)
procedure. If the flames repeatedly go out have the stove serviced.
ii)
Please note. When first turned on the flames will appear predominantly
blue. The fuel effect pieces will take time to warm up. Although some glow
will be seen after approximately ten minutes, the full visual effect will only
be apparent after a somewhat longer time.
iii)
The appliance will operate to its maximum potential if the flue is primed
during the first 20 – 30 minutes of operation. To do this, simply slide the
control button to its highest setting. This will also burn off any carbon
deposits that may have formed during previous operations.
iv)
If operating the appliance for long periods it is beneficial occasionally to
change the settings. This will also help to remove any carbon deposits
that may form during operation.

CLEANING YOUR STOVE
Turn the stove off and allow it to cool completely before attempting any cleaning. Note
that it will retain heat for some time after it has been turned off.
Cast Iron Surfaces.
Regular dusting with a dry lint free cloth is all that should normally be necessary. If
the paint needs retouching, allow the stove to cool completely. Brush any areas
needing attention with a wire brush (Not enamelled surfaces). Clean off any loose
matter. Touch up with high temperature stove paint. Apply the paint sparingly. Two
light coats are better than one thick coat.
Opening the Door.
The door is secured with a locking bolt and Hex nut. To open the door use a 3mm
Allen key to loosen the hex nut on the side of the door, being carefull not to remove it
completely. Ref to Figure A. Then select a suitably sized spanner and turn counter
clockwise by approximately a quarter turn on the handle to open.
Always secure the door with the locking bolt and hex nut to prevent
inadvertent opening and consequent injury or damage while the stove is in use.
To lock the door turn the locking bolt first clockwise followed by the hex nut
until they reach there stoping points.
The Glass Window.
Any stains on the glass can be removed with a non-abrasive cleaner such as a
ceramic hob cleaner. Never use abrasive cleaners. Clean the window carefully in
accordance with the instructions supplied with the cleaner.
FITTING THE CERAMIC FUEL EFFECT
The installer and owner guide for the ceramic fuel effect is separate from this guide.
The installer may have attached it to this guide or placed it inside. It is important that
the installer and owner guide for the ceramic fuel effect is followed correctly. If
replacing the ceramic fuel effect, where a new guide is supplied, follow the installer
and owner guide supplied with the replacement fuel effect.
Keep the replacement installer and owner guide with this owner guide for future
reference.

MAINTENANCE AND SERVICING
Regular maintenance.
In order to achieve and maintain high levels of personal safety and performance
efficiency, it is essential that the flue is kept clear of any form of obstruction.
In the United Kingdom it is the law that a landlord must have any gas appliance, flue
and pipework which is situated in a tenant’s premises checked for safety at least
every twelve months by a competent person (In the UK a GAS SAFE REGISTER
engineer, Outside of the UK a CORGI or GAS SAFE REGISTER engineer).
We recommend that all gas appliances and their flues, wherever situated, are
checked annually.
