SAFETY RULES
Warning:
An outside air kit must be installed on the Inglenook Fireplace. Inglenook air
openings are never to be obstructed. Any obstruction of combustion air openings can
create danger both for the dwelling and the occupants.
Warning:
The fireplace must be operated with the doors fully opened or fully closed. If the unit
is operated with the doors fully opened, the optional fire screen MUST be used.
Warning:
When cleaning, all ashes should be placed in an approved metal container with a tight
fitting lid. The closed ash container should be placed on a non-combustible floor or on
the ground outside the house, pending final ash disposal. The ash should be retained in
a closed container until all ash and cinders have thoroughly cooled.
Warning:
Keep combustible materials at least 48 inches from the front of the fireplace.
Never use gasoline, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid or similar liquids to start or
rekindle a fire in this fireplace. Keep all such liquids well away from the fireplace at
all times.
Warning:
Do not use grates, andirons, or other methods of supporting fuel off the floor of the
firebox. Using such devices can cause “over burn” and generate excessive
temperatures.
Warning:
Never leave children unattended when there is a fire burning in the fireplace.
Warning:
Do not use a fireplace insert or other products not specifically approved for use with
this fireplace. Contact your local authorized Country Flame Dealer or Country Flame
directly for any necessary clarification.
Warning:
Country Flame does not recommend the use of solid fuel fire log products. If used, do
not poke or stir the logs. Follow all solid fuel fire log instructions, warnings, and
caution markings on the packaging prior to use.
Warning:
The use of some fuels (e.g. charcoal) can generate carbon monoxide and create hazards
associated from carbon monoxides. Ensure the hazards of any fuel being used in the
Inglenook are understood before burning occurs.
Warning:
Country Flame strongly recommends the use of smoke and carbon monoxide
detectors. At a minimum, these devices should be checked on a semi-annual basis.
Warning:
All Inglenook fuel loads must be behind the log retainer, i.e., no fuel should be
allowed between the log retainer and glass doors.
Warning:
Consult with your local authorized Country Flame Dealer, the local city code
department or the local fire department concerning installation of this product.

INGLENOOK FIREPLACE OPERATION
FUEL
The Inglenook should be fueled with seasoned cordwood. Hardwoods will provide more energy per
pound of wood consumed because of its superior density when compared to softwood. If hardwoods
are utilized to fuel your Inglenook, the results will be a longer burning fire that requires less frequent
refueling. It is recommended that whether hardwood or softwood is used, the moisture content should
not exceed 20%. Higher moisture content wood will be difficult to burn and will result in lower
efficiency, increased creosoting in the chimney and on the glass. Excessively dry firewood will burn
well but will increase emissions output and burn at a faster rate.
Do not burn scrap, garbage, treated wood or wood such as driftwood which has been exposed to salt
or other chemicals that will corrode the firebox and chimney. Do not burn large amounts of paper,
cardboard, tree branches or building construction materials. The intense fires these products create
may overheat the fireplace thus causing damage to the unit, a potential fire outside the firebox or even
possibly igniting a chimney fire.
FIRST FIRE
Before using your Inglenook Fireplace for the first time, ensure that all packaging material has been
removed from the outside and inside the fireplace. Remove all glue with mild soap and ensure the
door windows have been cleaned of all foreign material before starting the first fire. If gold doors
have been purchased with the Inglenook Fireplace, ensure proper cleaning before the first fire. Proper
cleaning must be accomplished or permanent damage can occur to the gold finish.
It is best to ensure that the first six fires are small and short in duration. Use only enough firewood to
limit the fire to a one-hour burn until six fires have been burnt. The purpose of these small fires is to
allow proper curing of the refractory bricks and the exterior paint. The first fires may produce slight
smoking due to curing of the paint and steel. The owner should be prepared to ensure open window
ventilation during the first few fires. In addition, any dust that has accumulated on the fireplace will
burn off during these first few fires. The owner should remain alert to setting off a smoke alarm that
is located in the same or adjacent rooms to the Inglenook Fireplace.
BUILDING A FIRE
Check for proper fireplace draft. Preheat the flue if necessary in order to establish proper fire draft.
Several crumpled balls of newspaper can be placed into the firebox to preheat the chimney. Once
heated, additional small crumpled papers can be added with small dry pieces of kindling added on top
of the paper. Crisscrossing this small kindling over the paper will create airspace between the
kindling thus ensuring a quicker start to the fire. It is important that air can circulate around the
kindling during the start up process. Open the Inglenook Fireplace combustion air control fully (left
most position) and light the newspaper. Close the doors to the fireplace once the newspaper is well
ignited. As soon as the kindling fire is established, you can add cordwood.
The Inglenook Fireplace should be operated with the air control fully open until such time that the
owner believes the cordwood is well ignited.
Version: 7.1
11
COMBUSTION CONTROL
The Inglenook is not designed to operate with a flue damper. As is standard practice with hi-tech
high efficiency fireplaces, the Inglenook combustion air damper controls all air entering the firebox.
This combustion air damper allows the owner more precise control of the fire by accurately
controlling the air available for combustion. The combustion air damper control is located on the
right side of the Inglenook just below the bottom edge of the top grill as shown in Figure 1. An air
damper tool is offered by Country Flame to extend the length of this control mechanism. This
combustion air damper control is fully opened when the control is moved all the way to its left
position. The combustion air control is completely closed when the control is moved to its far right.
To ensure no air leakage or air infiltration into your home when the Inglenook Fireplace is not in use,
the combustion control lever should be kept in its closed position. This will minimize air leakage
through the chimney. The combustion air control should be opened before opening the doors to your
Inglenook to eliminate the possibility of a back draft into the room where your fireplace is located.
FIGURE 1: COMBUSTION AIR DAMPER CONTROL
HIGH BURN MODE
The maximum heat output can be obtained from your Inglenook Fireplace by operating the firebox
with a full load of wood, the doors closed and the combustion air damper fully open. This high burn
mode ensures the hottest fire with maximum heat output. The Inglenook Fireplace can produce a
maximum of 151,200 BTU of heat per hour. Operating the Inglenook in the high burn mode will
necessitate the need for refilling the firebox with fuel on an accelerated basis. The amount of fuel
needed and the time between refueling is dependent on many factors including moisture content of
wood, type of wood, environmental factors, and chimney type and height. To obtain a longer burn
time, the combustion air damper control can be partially or fully closed. By adjusting the combustion
air damper from its fully open position, the owner will obtain longer burn times by reducing the burn
rates of the fuel. These reduced combustion modes are covered in the following paragraphs.
Version: 7.1
12
FIGURE 2: HIGH BURN COMBUSTION AIR DAMPER SETTING
CAUTION must be used when operating the Inglenook Fireplace with the combustion air damper
control wide open. Only seasoned hardwood should be burnt in this manner. Burning softwoods,
small dry pieces of construction scraps, trash or paper with the combustion air damper control wide
open will cause a very intense fire to be created. This intense high temperature fire could
permanently damage the Inglenook firebox or create hazardous situations. Extreme care must be
exercised when operating the Inglenook Fireplace in the accelerated combustion mode. In fact,
Country Flame strongly recommends that the Inglenook Fireplace NOT be operated in accelerated
combustion mode for more than 1 hour continuous. Failure to observe this recommendation may
cause excessive heat build up and damage to the gold door plating or to the cast door paint.
MEDIUM BURN MODE
Country Flame recommends this mode for normal use of the Inglenook Fireplace. Operating the
fireplace in this manner will minimize the amount of creosote on the glass and in the chimney. The
combustion air damper should be set somewhere between the ¼ and ½ closed position as shown in
Figure 3 to obtain a medium combustion fire. The precise setting for your Inglenook combustion air
damper will depend on many factors, including chimney length and the moisture content of the wood.
Do not be afraid to experiment to find the optimum position to satisfy your requirements for a warm
and satisfying fire. As an example, a long warm chimney will necessitate closing the combustion air
damper more due to the natural draw created by the flue gases being drawing through the chimney.
FIGURE 3: MEDIUM BURN COMBUSTION AIR DAMPER SETTING
To establish proper medium combustion burn mode, close the combustion air damper completely and
then set the combustion air damper somewhere between the ¼ to ½ closed setting. The firebox
should contain at least several medium size pieces of wood burning on a bed of hot coals. The
Inglenook heat output will be between 40,000 and 60,000 BTU per hour in the medium combustion
burn mode. In order to maintain a constant medium heat output, load more firewood about every four
to five hours. If softwoods are used in place of seasoned hardwoods the operator of the Inglenook
Fireplace should expect significantly reduced times for burn rates with reduced heat output.
LOW BURN MODE
When the Inglenook Fireplace air combustion damper is fully closed, as shown in Figure 4, a low
combustion fire will occur. Low combustion will not put the fire out but there will be a noticeable
Version: 7.1
13
change in the flame pattern. The flames will be slow and intermittent and may appear dirty if the
wood is too wet i.e., a moisture content of 20% and more.
During the Low Combustion Burn Mode, creosote may accumulate on the glass doors. Low
combustion burning should only be used after the firebox has been allowed to reach a hot operating
temperature i.e., the air combustion damper has been fully open to produce a hot fire for about an
hour. Low combustion can be used at night in order to reduce the heat output and to prolong the
burn. The loading time will be between six to twelve hours.
FIGURE 4: LOW BURN COMBUSTION AIR DAMPER SETTING
REFUELING FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE
The Inglenook Fireplace performance will be greatly enhanced if the operator will ensure the
combustion air damper is fully opened after refueling. If this process is followed, the firebox and
chimney system will return to optimum operating temperature in the shortest period of time.
Combustion efficiency is directly affected by firebox temperature and following the above stated
process will ensure maximum efficiency of your Inglenook Fireplace.
The upper part of the
Inglenook firebox temperature should exceed 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit or higher in order to achieve
maximum operating efficiency. To obtain this firebox temperature after reloading of wood, the
Inglenook should be operated with the combustion air damper fully opened for a minimum of 15 to
30 minutes. Again, the time will vary depending on the room heat, moisture content of the wood and
the type of wood being burnt. Once the Inglenook has reached a proper operating temperature, the
combustion air damper can be gradually closed. A good indication that the proper temperature has
been reached is when a flame can be seen at the top of the firebox. This upper fire indicates excellent
combustion and will ensure cleaner glass, less creosoting, greater efficiency, and the greatest warmth
and viewing pleasure for your family to enjoy.
SMOKING - CAUSES
In order to reduce the problematic issue of smoke escaping from the Inglenook Fireplace when
opening the firebox doors, always ensure that the combustion air damper is in the fully open position
before the doors are opened. CAUTION: ALWAYS open all fireplace doors very slowly. This will
ensure that the fireplace is drafting through the fresh air intake and the chimney system rather than
using your house as a source for air or the expulsion of air. Your fireplace has been designed and
tested to provide smoke free operation. Occasionally, there may be a small amount of smoking due to
the fact that the chimney system has not reached proper operating temperature. A warm chimney
system ensures maximum draft efficiency for the firebox. If the fireplace continues to smoke it is
probably for one of the following reasons:
1. Doors Partly Open
Always operate the Inglenook with the front doors fully open or fully closed. If the doors are
operated fully open, the optional screen kit MUST be installed for safety reasons.
Version: 7.1
14
2. Negative Pressure
As the Inglenook fire burns, the exhaust gases are drafted up and out of the chimney system. The
Inglenook Fireplace system is “pulling” fresh air from somewhere to keep the fire burning
properly. The Inglenook’s exhausted draft air has to be replaced via a properly operating outside
air duct system connected to the fireplace. If not connected properly, the fireplace will draw air
to the firebox from inside the house or the fire will be starved due to a lack of available
combustion air. This incorrect process will create a negative pressure (reduced pressure inside
the house compared to outside air pressure) in your home. If your Inglenook Fireplace has been
properly installed, fresh combustion air will be supplied through the outside air duct to the fire.
Check the Inglenook Fireplace system by temporarily opening a window near the fireplace. With
the fireplace doors closed and a fire operating, you should see no change in the fire when the
window is temporarily opened. This check ensures your Inglenook has an adequate air supply
through the outside air tube and is unaffected by home air when the fireplace doors are closed. If
the fireplace doors are open, house air pressure may be affected in a negative or positive pressure
depending on conditions.
3. Fan Operation (i.e., Bathroom Exhaust, Kitchen Exhaust)
Exhaust fans draw air out of a home and may actually create negative pressure (absence of air or
reduced air pressure inside a well sealed home.) When operating your Inglenook hi-tech
fireplace, ensure that all of your home’s exhaust fans are turned off or that a window is opened
slightly to ensure these fans do not create a negative pressure inside your home. If these exhaust
fans are operated with a window slightly open, the fans will not try to draw air from the fireplace
which could create a smoke condition inside the home.
4. Wet Wood
Wet or tarred firewood will smolder and smoke instead of burning as efficiently as seasoned
woods. Improperly seasoned wood will increase annual maintenance and operating costs of your
Inglenook Fireplace. It is worth your time, money, and enjoyment to ensure that you have good
seasoned wood to burn in your Inglenook Fireplace.
5. Blocked Chimney
The chimney serves as an exit for all burnt gases created during the fire burning process.
Blockage (heavy soot or dirt) of either the chimney or the air intake port may make the Inglenook
Fireplace operate improperly or render it unusable. Always ensure, prior to the heating season,
that a qualified service technician has checked the fireplace chimney and outside air intake
system. This simple process should ensure an enjoyable heating season with the Inglenook
Fireplace.
6. Chimney too Short
The Inglenook Fireplace minimum chimney height is 8 feet. This minimum height does not
include the fireplace height. The Inglenook chimney must extend at least 3 feet (915 mm) above
its point of contact with the roof and at least 2 feet (610 mm) higher than any roof or wall within
10 feet (3 cm) of it. If installed with offsets, the minimum chimney height is 12 feet not
including the height of the fireplace. Additional chimney height will increase draft and therefore
will decrease the tendency of the Inglenook to smoke. Figure 5 shows a sloped roof chimney
installation.
Version: 7.1
15
FIGURE 5: CHIMNEY INSTALLATION DIMENSIONS
7. Poor Chimney Draft
Perform the following simple test of your chimney draft. With no fire in the Inglenook firebox
hold a recently lit match (smoke should be trailing from the match) inside the firebox towards the
upper one third of the top of the firebox. If the draft is proper, you should see the match smoke
being exhausted up through the baffle. Chimneys installed against an outside wall without
protection may generate back draft problems, which will cause problems in starting your
Inglenook fire. To minimize this problem in the event that it occurs open a nearby window. Now
roll up a piece of paper and light it inside the firebox. Hold this lit paper towards the upper part
of the firebox just above the baffle. It may be necessary repeat this step several times in order to
obtain proper operating temperature in the chimney so draft can be sustained. Be careful not to
burn yourself with the paper. Once you see the smoke from the lit paper is drafting better a fire
can be started in Inglenook Fireplace.
IMPORTANT NOTES
1. The hot air room vent of your Inglenook may only be blocked off if the gravity duct kit is
being installed. If you are going to block off the hot air room vent and install the gravity
duct kit use only the optional Inglenook block off kit. Failure to install the gravity duct
kit with the hot air grill blocked will cause your system to overheat.
2. Never use gasoline, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid or other flammable liquids to start a
fire.
3. Do not burn coal. The sculpture in coal will corrode the firebox.
4. Do not burn ocean driftwood or other waterlogged wood. The salt will corrode the
firebox and chimney.
5. Do not operate the Inglenook with doors partially open or with one door open.
6. Do not overfill the firebox or burn wood in the area in front of the grate.
7. Do not abuse your Inglenook by burning paper, or cardboard or construction material
such as pressed wood, plywood or lumber.
8. Do not allow wood to smolder or burn without flame, since this will produce excessive
creosote in the unit.
Version: 7.1
16
MAINTAINING YOUR INGLENOOK FIREPLACE
CREOSOTE
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors which combine with expelled
moisture to form a black deposit called creosote. Creosote will accumulate on the flue lining and if
left to build up, can create a potential fire hazard within the chimney system. When ignited, creosote
makes an extremely hot fire. If the creosote deposit within a chimney system were large then a
resultant chimney fire would burn extremely hot. A creosote chimney fire can damage the chimney
and potentially overheat a surrounding wood frame within the house. Creosote formation can be kept
to a minimum by routinely building small hot fires rather than slow burning, smoldering fires and by
proper refueling the fire. In addition, each year the homeowner should have the Inglenook Fireplace
chimney inspected and cleaned as necessary to assist in preventing chimney fires.
CHIMNEY MAINTENANCE
Regular chimney inspection and maintenance combined with proper operation will help prevent
chimney fires. The golden rule of operating a fireplace is to KEEP THE CHIMNEY CLEAN. Do
not allow more than one sixteenth of an inch of creosote buildup in the Inglenook Fireplace chimney.
The amount of creosote created by operating the Inglenook Fireplace will depend on variables such as
the frequency of use and the type of fire that is routinely burnt. Country Flame recommends:
1. Inspect the chimney system weekly or before each use. From this the operator will gain
knowledge of how often it will be necessary to clean or have the chimney cleaned.
2. Hire a qualified chimney sweep to clean the Inglenook Fireplace and chimney system at least
once a year. If the owner wants to perform self-cleaning, Country Flame recommends using
a stiff plastic or non-metallic brush on the inside walls of the chimney. A metal brush, if
used, should be sized slightly smaller than the flue to avoid damaging the chimney. Do not
use a brush that will scratch or scar the stainless steel interior of the chimney.
3. Do not expect chemical cleaners to keep your chimney clean. If necessary, the rain cap at the
top of the chimney system can be removed to inspect or clean the chimney system. There are
a number of different methods used to attach a rain cap to a chimney therefore it is
recommended to consult the manufacture of such systems on how to remove the rain cap.
Once the rain cap is removed increased access allows for better inspection or cleaning of the
chimney system.
CHIMNEY FIRES
Regular Inglenook chimney maintenance and inspection will minimize the potential of a chimney
fire. If the Inglenook Fireplace owner ever encounters a chimney fire, follow these steps:
1. Fully close the fireplace doors and fully close the combustion air damper.
2. Alert any occupants in the house of the fire danger and ensure everyone exits the building in a
quick and orderly fashion.
3. Call the local fire department. It is better to have the fire department arrive before they are
needed then after the house is already in blazes.
Version: 7.1
17
4. Always use a dry chemical fire extinguisher, baking soda or sand to control the fire. Do not
use water as it may cause a dangerous steam explosion.
5. Inspect outside the house to ensure that sparks and hot embers coming out of the chimney are
not igniting the roof or any adjacent building or property.
6. If a chimney fire ever occurs, DO NOT USE THE INGLENOOK FIREPLACE until both a
qualified chimney sweep and a local Fire Department Inspector reviews the system and
provides written approval that the fireplace and chimney are safe to operate.
GOLD DOOR CARE
The door should be wiped down regularly to ensure the luster and beauty of the door system lasts the
life of the fireplace. Always use an approved glass cleaner (i.e. Windex, Glass Plus) and a lint free
soft cloth to polish the doorframe. DO NOT use any abrasives, like steel wool, brass polish, cleaners,
like comet, or other household cleaners. If used, the door will be permanently scratched and the
finish ruined. If damage does occur to the doors from improper cleaning, the solution will be
expensive to return the doors to their original luster. Use proper care in cleaning the Inglenook doors
and other polished surfaces and a lifetime of enjoyment will be yours. Cast doors require no care.
ASHES AND THE ASH PAN
The Inglenook Fireplace has an ash pan located below the firebox grate. Access to this ash pan is
through the lower grill. Always remove ash after they have properly cooled. Hot ash is dangerous to
both surrounding areas and can cause severe burns. Wait until the Inglenook fire has been out for a
minimum of 24 hours. Then open the bottom louver and remove the ash pan. A proper fireplace
glove should be worn anytime the ash pan is removed. Dump the ash in a proper ash container or
remove to a safe outdoors area. Remember that although the ash may look and feel cool to the touch,
a smoldering ember can start a fire. CAUTION: Care should be used to store any ash in a proper
container with an approved airtight lid. If ash is taken outside, water should be poured over the ash to
ensure no fire flare up can occur.
FIREBRICK REPLACEMENT
The intense repetitive heat inside the Inglenook firebox will normally cause hairline cracks in the
Firebrick. Proper curing as described in “First fires” will assist to minimize these cracks and extend
the life of the Inglenook Firebrick. Small cracks will not normally diminish the effectiveness of the
Firebrick; however, if large cracks develop in the Firebrick, then replacement of these items should
occur. To replace the Inglenook Firebrick bricks refer to Figure 6 and follow these simple steps:
FIGURE 6: INGLENOOK FIREBRICK SYSTEM
Version: 7.1
18
DOOR(S) INSTALLATION
The Inglenook doors have been mounted and checked for proper fit at the factory. If the doors are
removed for any reason, care must be taken in reinstalling the doors to ensure proper alignment and
fit. Setting the doors is quite simple. Ensure the doors are in the fully open position and then align
the female portion of the door hinge with the male portion of the fireplace hinge. Gently lower the
door hinges over the fireplace hinge. Once proper seating has been accomplished, the door can be
closed to check for proper fit. Follow the same procedure for the second door. The Inglenook door
installation should now be complete. To remove the doors, simply lift up a door from the fireplace
hinges. Store both doors in a secure place. If the doors are left sitting, ensure that the doors cannot
fall and injure someone or damage the door or glass by falling over. The Inglenook doors have been
adjusted at the Country Flame factory. If the door fit is not satisfactory, the owner can adjust the
doors using the hinge screws, refer to Figure 7.
FIGURE 7: DOOR ALIGNMENT POINTS
DOOR(S) ADJUSTMENT
The Inglenook doors, if installed and shipped with the fireplace, may require fine adjustment due to
shipping vibrations and jarring. After extended use, the door may also require some minor
adjustments to maintain a center-aligned appearance. The Inglenook doors need to remain airtight to
ensure proper firebox operation. The door gasket air tightness can be adjusted. To adjust the gasket
tightness, simply rotate the right hand door latch clockwise (tighten) or counterclockwise (loosen) one
complete revolution or as necessary to adjust the gasket seal. A good test to evaluate proper door
gasket seal is to lay a dollar bill against the stove frame and then close and latch the door. If gently
tugging on the dollar bill dose not dislodge it from the door, the seal is appropriate.
GLASS REPLACEMENT
The glass used in the Inglenook Fireplace is a 1400 degree Fahrenheit (° F) high temperature ceramic
glass. If the glass should crack or break for any reason, it must be replaced with an equal or better
grade ceramic glass. The use of tempered glass or ordinary glass IS NOT AUTHORIZED and is
Version: 7.1
19
hazardous to use. Inglenook Fireplace replacement glass can be purchased through one of Country
Flame’s authorized dealers. DO NOT OPERATE the Inglenook Fireplace with cracked or broken
door glass. See Figure 8 for securing points for the door glass.
FIGURE 8: DOOR GLASS REPLACEMENT
GLASS CLEANING
The Inglenook Fireplace is designed with an advanced air wash system to extend the time between
required cleaning of door glass. If the Inglenook Fireplace is operated continuously with the
combustion air damper partially or fully closed, the door glass will tend to get dirty unless the fuel,
firebox and glass are maintained at hot temperatures (see “Refueling for Best Performance”.) If the
door glass does require cleaning, use an authorized fireplace glass cleaner. Country Flame’s
authorized dealer will be happy to recommend a suitable cleaner that should be available in your
locale. Regular household glass cleaners are not effective in cleaning creosote and other gases from
the glass. DO NOT use abrasives such as steel wool or powder abrasives as they will permanently
damage the glass. Once the glass has been scratched, either expensive polishing or complete
replacement of the glass will be required. Use only approved 1400 degree Fahrenheit (°F) high
temperature fireplace ceramic glass to replace any cracked or broken glass. Refer to Appendix A for
additional information.
Version: 7.1
20
DOOR GASKET REPLACEMENT
Remove the doors from the unit. Place the doors, face down on a protective surface to ensure no
marring or scratching occurs during gasket replacement. To replace the Thermoglass™ knitted rope
and tape gasket, first remove all of the old material and gasket cement. Use a putty knife or other
sharp instrument to assist in removal. Use caution to prevent injury when removing old material. It
is important to ensure the area is totally clean before installing the new gasket cement and material.
The gasket must fit tight against the doorframe in order to ensure a proper airtight seal when the stove
is being operated. Apply gasket cement to the gasket channel per instructions provided with the
gasket kit. Once the cement has been properly applied, install the new gasket. Both gasket and
gasket cement are available from your authorized Country Flame dealer. The following table defines

FIREPLACE INSTALLATION
INGLENOOK FIREPLACE LOCATION
1. The best location for your fireplace is determined by considering the location of windows,
doors, and the traffic flow in the room where the fireplace is to be located. It is important to
allow space in front of the unit for the hearth extension and the mantel as well as taking into
consideration where the room hot air ducts (optional) will be installed if the fireplace upper
grill is not going to be used or is going to be augmented by optional hot ducts. Consideration
must also be given as to where and how the outside fresh air kit and chimney will be
installed. If possible, work with the installer to select a fireplace location where the chimney
will pass through the house without cutting floor or roof joists. Check the specifications of
the Inglenook Fireplace and layout a concept drawing of how this new system will fit into
your home. Figure 9 shows different methodology for installing the Inglenook Fireplace.
2. Under normal circumstances, no additional floor joists should be needed to install the
Inglenook Fireplace into a home. A few simple steps will verify whether more floor joists are
required. First, know the weight of the Inglenook Fireplace system. The Inglenook
Fireplace, with doors installed, weighs about 600 pounds. Include any additional options in
the weight. Next, measure the area occupied by the Inglenook Fireplace. The bottom
dimensions of the Inglenook Fireplace are 42 inches by 24 inches. Note the type of home
floor construction and existing joists sizes. Then consult with the installer or verify the local
building code to determine if additional support will be required.
3. The Inglenook Fireplace can be installed directly on a combustible or non-combustible floor.
A minimum of 7 feet (measured from the base of the appliance to the ceiling) is required
between the base of the appliance and the ceiling.
FIGURE 9: INGLENOOK FIREPLACE DIMENSIONAL REQUIREMENTS
Version: 7.1
22
HEARTH EXTENSION REQUIREMENTS
The Inglenook Fireplace can be installed directly on a combustible or non-combustible base or
directly on the floor. If the customer chooses, the Inglenook Fireplace can be elevated off the floor as
long as the requirements in paragraph 3 on page 18 are maintained between the base of the appliance
and the ceiling above the appliance. In addition, if the hearth is elevated in reference to the fire
chamber, the hearth extension cannot be elevated any higher than the bottom of the lower grill.
A combustible floor in front of the fireplace must be covered with tile, marble, stone or any other
non-combustible material. Figure 10 demonstrates the vertical relationship between the fireplace, the
sealing strip and the hearth extension. WARNING: A hearth extension is to be installed only as
illustrated in Figure 10 and in conformance with any local building codes. It is recommended that
either a sealing strip or sand-cement grout be used between the hearth and the on-site construction
hearth extension. Country Flame provides a non-combustible sealing strip for use in the hearth
extension. All hearth extensions must have an R-value of 2.0 or greater to ensure proper floor
protection. If thermal conductivity (k-factor) or thermal conductance (C-factor) is used instead of
thermal resistance (R factor) the use the relationships as follows a) k-factor is given with required
thickness (T) in inches as R = 1/k x T or b) C-factor is given as R = 1/C.
FIGURE 10: INGLENOOK FIREPLACE HEARTH EXTENSION REQUIREMENTS
FRAMING, FACING, & MANTEL
The construction of the framing, facing, and mantel must be in accordance with approved
construction industry standards and local building codes. The following steps, along with the sample
illustrations shown in Figure 11 through Figure 12 are offered as suggestions on how to handle
installation.
1. Frame the fireplace using 2” x 4” or heavier lumber. See Figure 11 for an example of roughin dimensions of the Inglenook Fireplace.
2. WARNING: Combustible material cannot be used in the space directly above the fireplace.
This area must remain empty for a height of 7 feet measured from the base/floor of the
appliance to the ceiling containing the combustible material above.
Version: 7.1
23
3. Frame the Inglenook Fireplace with vertical studs on each side of the fireplace. These studs
should run from floor to ceiling as shown in Figure 12. If combustible facing is to be used,
space the studs back from the front edge of the fireplace by the thickness of the facing
material. This will ensure that when the facing material is installed, it will be flush with the
front edge of the Inglenook Fireplace. CAUTION: Do not extend combustible material
on to face of fireplace. Frame headers between the vertical studs only as follows:
-
Place 2” x 3” or 2” x 4” headers, only along the upper part of the front, side and back
faces. Headers and Framing must not be any closer than stand offs permit. Do not
put wood or any combustible material within the area above the fireplace except on
the front facing.
-
Place headers as required or to support the facing and mantel.

1. Combustible material must be installed flush with the fireplace. It may not project in front of
or on the fireplace. This means that the steel front façade of the fireplace must not be
overlapped with the combustible facing material. Figure 14 shows the proper installation of
combustible material with reference to the fireplace front façade.
2. Non-combustible materials such as brick, stone or ceramic tile may project in front of and
onto the steel front façade of the Inglenook Fireplace. Figure 15 shows the proper installation
of non-combustible material with reference to overlapping the fireplace front façade.

the mantel must be at least 45 inches from the bottom of the unit.
MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION AND CEARANCES:
The Inglenook Fireplace has been tested and approved for installation in mobile homes. It is
important to follow additional installation requirements associated with mobile home installation.
Then Inglenook Fireplace must be securely fastened to the floor of the mobile home using the system
provided by Country Flame. Figure 16 demonstrates the recommended “tie down” points for use in
securing the Inglenook Fireplace to a mobile home floor. In addition, the Inglenook Fireplace should
NEVER BE INSTALLED IN THE SLEEPING AREA OF ANY MOBILE HOME. Also, the
structural integrity of the mobile home floor, wall, ceiling, and roof must be maintained during the
installation of an Inglenook Fireplace in a mobile home application. If there are any questions
concerning mobile home installation, contact your local Country Flame dealer and adhere to all local
codes concerning mobile home installation.

FIGURE 17: HOT AIR DUCT KIT
The hot air duct kit allows blockage of the upper grill of the Inglenook Fireplace. If the upper
fireplace grill is blocked on the Inglenook, the hot air duct kit cannot be terminated as a floor register
due to excessive heat output. To block the upper grill follow these simple steps:
a)
b)
c)
Remove the upper fireplace grill.
Install the black flat panel. No insulation strip is to be installed inside grill area.
The fireplace façade can now be covered with non-combustible material.
There are certain safety rules that must be adhered to when installing a gravity hot air duct kit. Please
refer to the following information and check local codes.

When installing the double outlet hot air duct kit system, the air outlets may be installed in the same
room as the fireplace. Or, the outlets may each be installed in different adjacent or upper rooms. If
the air outlets are at different elevations, the higher outlet will tend to exhaust more heat. Figure 18
shows such a configuration.
Version: 7.1
27
FIGURE 18: HOT AIR DUCT KIT MULITPLE LOCATION INSTALLATION
Hot air duct outlets must be installed with the following information or local codes adhered to:
1. Remove the plates closing up the eight-inch diameter holes on top of the Inglenook Fireplace.
There is a hot air duct outlet on each side of the eight-inch chimney flue outlet. Cut the
insulation covering the air duct outlets. This will expose two eight-inch diameter plates that
will need to be removed. Install the two adaptors into the eight-inch openings.
2. There must be at least a one-inch clearance maintained between the hot air duct outlets and
any combustible material. Refer to the hot air duct installation kit instructions for the proper
hole sizes.
Exception #1: For the grills covering the hot air grill boxes, framing should be 13 inches wide
by 15 inches high to provide the clearance as required by the integral spacers
on the double outlet duct system. At no time should any combustible facing
material cover any part of the hot air duct outlet grill face.
3. The maximum number of elbows in any duct run is two.
4. Maintain at least 14 inches clearance from the outlet grill framing to a combustible ceiling
sidewall or mantel.
5. When traversing a combustible wall or floor, a fire stop must be installed at the wall or floor
penetration. Refer to the duct flue installation kit requirements for proper installations.
6. Do not connect the hot air ducts to any part of the central heating system. Malfunction of the
heating system’s fan will cause the fireplace to overheat. The central heating duct system is
only single wall. The Inglenook Fireplace chimney requires double wall Type B vent. The
Version: 7.1
28
Inglenook Fireplace has not been tested for a Central forced air kit and should not be used
in such applications.
7. Use only Country Flame approved grills and components as described in the kit and
specifications sections of this manual. Non-approved grills or registers may be too restrictive
and thus create a situation that overheats the fireplace or ceiling.
8. Do not use insulated flexible ducts with the Inglenook Fireplace. Use of these materials can
create a situation that overheats these materials and creates a hazardous situation.
9. Do not use tees or any other components other than the ones specifically listed in this manual.
10. All ducts must extend upwards or horizontally. Never try to route the ducting downward.
11. The hot air outlet grills must be installed with the louvers pointing downwards in order to
prevent overheating adjacent ceilings.
OUTSIDE AIR KIT
During operation, the Inglenook Fireplace requires fresh outside air to be drawn into the
combustion chamber while hot exhaust gases are removed via the chimney system. If fresh air is
not available in proper quantity, the Inglenook fire may starve out or pull enough air from inside
the house (if the fireplace doors are open) causing other fuel burning appliances to go out. Any
operating Exhaust fan will also compete for air that may lead to negative pressure in the house.
This can result in smoke entering the house from the fireplace. This situation has become more
likely as modern house construction has improved air tightness. To minimize this problem, the
Inglenook Fireplace requires the installation of an outside air duct system.
The fresh outside air duct system must be installed according to the following requirements, See
Figure 19 for example installations:
1. The fresh outside air duct length should be kept to a minimum length. The maximum
length of the fresh outside air duct is 40 feet with a 5-foot reduction for each elbow
installed.
2. The fresh outside air duct must come from outside the house. This means installation in
the attic, basement or garage is incorrect and will void the warranty as well as create a
hazardous operating condition.
3. The fresh outside air duct intake register should be installed where it will not become
obstructed or blocked by snow or exposed to extreme wind. In addition, remember that
this system is meant to pull fresh air from outside the house. Ensure that it is kept away
from automobile exhaust fumes, gas meters, or other home vents that might contaminate
incoming fresh air to the Inglenook Fireplace.
4. The fresh outside air duct and register may be installed above or below floor level.
Version: 7.1
29
OUTSIDE AIR KIT INSTALLATION
A minimum of a four (4) inch hole is to be made in the outside wall of the house at the specified
location for the fresh air outside air duct. From outside the home place the fresh outside air duct
register in the hole (open side down) and fasten the register to the wall with screws provided. Slip the
duct pipe into the insulated sleeve. Place the insulated pipe over the register tube and over the
fireplaces outside air connector. Figure 19 shows multiple outside air kit installation possibilities.
Galvanized pipe can be used for the outside air tubing but Country Flame Technologies recommends
insulated pipe. Insulated pipe will reduce, if not eliminate, the chances of water condensate as cold
air is brought into a warm air (living space.) Carefully pull back the insulation and plastic cover at
each end exposing the flexible pipe. Using aluminum tape, wrap the tape around the joint between
the flexible pipe and the air inlets. Carefully push the insulation and plastic cover back over the pipe.
Using aluminum tape, fasten the plastic cover in place.
CAUTION:

BLOWER OPERATION
Operation of the blower system is relatively simple. After the fire has generated enough heat, the
blower system will automatically turn on. The blower begins to operate because the Inglenook grate
area has reached approximately 1100F causing the installed snap disk to close thus energizing the
blower motor electrical circuit. Blower motor system operation could take longer than 20 minutes
depending on room temperature, outside temperature, and the size of the fire started in the Inglenook.
It is important to note that if the wall mounted blower speed control is installed and turned to low, the
blower’s speed will limit the amount of airflow that can be obtained as the blower motor begins
operation. Do not try to service the blower system unless you are a certified electrician. With the
blower motor system plugged into the receptacle and the electrical supply energized, an electrical
shock potential exists. The Inglenook lower compartment is labeled with Risk of Electrical Shock.
Disconnect Power Before servicing the Unit. Knowledge of electrical systems is required for
troubleshooting and servicing of the blower system.
In addition, the blower system has moving parts that may cause injury. Do not reach into the
lower grill area and try to determine if the blower is operating by touching or feeling for a vibration of
the motor. Reaching into the area of moving parts may cause injury. Never reach into the lower grill
compartment when the Inglenook Fireplace is being burnt as severe burns can occur from contact
with hot parts.
DANGER: Risk of Electric Shock. Disconnect Power Before Servicing The Blower Unit.

THE CHIMNEY
CHIMNEY INSTALLATION
1.
If possible, always install an approved chimney system in an interior chase of the home.
This will provide better performance by maintaining heat in the entire chimney system thus
ensuring better draft and removal of spent exhaust gases. In areas where temperatures
hover or remain below freezing, the use of an exterior chimney will increase the likelihood
of fireplace starting and operating problems. Some of these problems will be difficult
starts, low draft, high rates of creosoting, and increased maintenance of the system will be
required. Exterior chimneys are also prone to down drafting and flow reversal.
Installations, which are located on lower floors in the house, such as in a basement, in
combination with an outside chimney are especially prone to flow reversal.
Follow the Chimney Manufacturer’s installation procedures included with the chimney
system being installed with the Inglenook Fireplace. Installing the chimney must be in
compliance with the local codes, chimney manufacturer’s recommended procedures, and
must attach to the Country Flame product in accordance to instructions provided.
CAUTION: DO NOT FILL REQUIRED CLEARANCES AROUND THE CHIMNEY
AND SURROUNDING COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL WITH INSULATION!
2.
The Inglenook Fireplace is listed for only an eight-inch diameter chimney system. Refer to
the specifications in this manual for approved chimney systems to be used with the
Inglenook Fireplace.
3.
IMPORTANT: The anchor plate flange or air-cooled starter collar must fit into the flue
collar on the fireplace to prevent creosote leakage. Figure 22 shows the proper installation
onto the top of the Inglenook Fireplace. It is important that this anchor plate or starter
collar be installed correctly to support the chimney, ensure no leakage of creosote, and
ensure no leakage of fumes.
FIGURE 22: ANCHOR PLATE INSTALLATION
Version: 7.1

4.
MINIMUM CHIMNEY HEIGHT: The chimney must be a minimum of 8’above top of
fireplace. The chimney must extend a minimum of three feet above the highest point where
it passes through the roof. Also, the chimney must be at least two feet higher than any
portion of the building within ten feet.
5.
MAXIMUM CHIMNEY HEIGHT: The chimney can be no taller than 50’ high as
measured from the top of the Inglenook Fireplace anchor plate.
6.
ELBOWS USED IN CHIMNEY CONSTRUCTION: A maximum of four thirty-degree
elbows can be used in chimney construction as long as they are used in 2 sets offset from
each other. Maximum offset is 4’.
If two thirty-degree elbows are used, the chimney must be a minimum of 12’ high.
When four thirty-degree elbows are used, the chimney must be a minimum of 25’ high.
Follow all chimney manufacturers’ clearance recommendations for distances from
combustible material and the location of support bracket requirements.
7.
A chimney venting the Inglenook Fireplace shall not vent any other appliance.
WARNING: In cold areas, an air-cooled chimney may generate a large amount of water due to
condensation. This water will accumulate on top of the fireplace and may cause corrosion. Country
Flame Technologies Inc. cannot be held responsible for condensation/corrosion problems. In cold
climates, Country Flame recommends the use of HT Listed UL103 2100° chimney.
8.
A rain cap must be installed on top of the chimney. Failure to install a rain cap will cause
corrosion of the chimney system and degrade its expected life and warranty.

CHIMNEY CHASE AND MULTIPLE TERMINATIONS
For the purpose of this manual, a chimney chase is considered a part of the chimney system rather
than part of a building. The chimney termination must be placed a minimum of eighteen inches
or four hundred and sixty millimeters above the case.
For installations where more than one chimney is located in the same chase or within the same
area, it is recommended that each chimney termination be separated by at least sixteen inches or
four hundred and ten millimeters from the next chimney and each chimney termination be placed
a minimum of eighteen inches or four hundred and sixty millimeters above the case. These
separations are required to prevent smoke from migrating from one chimney to another. Figure
27 shows an example of the required minimums.

FIREPLACE PAINT CURE INSTRUCTIONS
Ventilate the house during the first three times the fireplace is used. The paint on the new fireplace
can give off a smoke heavy with carbon dioxide and has an odor. Adequately ventilate the home to
avoid a concentration of smoke or odor. Babies, small children, pregnant women and pets should not
be in the area as the fumes cause an imbalance of air quality. Always open doors or windows and use
a fan during the first few burns. Once the initial burns are complete the paint will set and there should
be no more smoke or odor.
Do not touch the surface of the fireplace during the first three burn-in procedures. The paint will be
soft and gummy until it cures properly. Most fireplaces stop smoking after 3 burns. The first two
burns should be at 2500F (1210F) for 20 minutes. Do not let the fireplace cool down significantly
between burns. The last fire should be between 5000F and 7000F for at least 45 minutes. Operate
the fireplace slowly without a hot fire. If the fireplace gets too hot, too quick, the paint will crack.
Country Flame recommends that the owner leave the door ajar on the fireplace during this process to
prevent the gasket from sticking to the curing paint.
Fireplaces with a cooler surface temperature and those that were previously painted with another
color will take longer to dry. The paint cure process can usually be observed by the effect of the paint
turning flat as the heat radiates out from the hotter parts. If repainting a surface, use Stove Bright
Paint Prep or Lacquer Thinner. Do not use paint thinner or turpentine as both of these products leave
oil like film that interferes with adhesion of the paint.

Glass-Ceramic, ROBAX®
ROBAX® glass-ceramic has a thermal endurance far exceeding that of normal tempered glass.
ROBAX® is designed to operate at temperatures ranging from -4000F to +14000F. Despite its
superior thermal properties, your ROBAX® stove windows should be treated with care. This glassceramic can still be scratched or broken by mechanical abuse. When cleaning the window, use only
non-caustic, non-abrasive cleaners. Country Flame uses ROBAX® glass-ceramic that is 0.197
inches thick +/- 0.008 inches. The ROBAX® glass is custom cut to fit Country Flame product. If

problems occur or your glass needs replacement, contact one of the many authorized Country Flame
dealers for assistance in replacing the glass.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN HOT GLASS.
Applying cleaner to hot glass may cause burns, emit hot noxious fumes, and the glass is more likely
to stain.
Creosote and soot, caused by burning biomass fuels may be removed with Speedy White Hearth and
Stove Cleaner or Cook Top Cleaning Crème available at most appliance centers or call 1-800-8728855 to obtain the proper cleaning material. Be careful, the solution can stain surrounding material,
especially after the creosote has dissolved and runs or drips off the glass. Hint: put down a generous
amount of newspaper in the surrounding area. After using cleaner always remove all residue by
washing the glass with water or conventional window cleaner spray. Any remaining residue will stain
the glass when it is heated.
