IMPORTANT NOTES

This stove is a fuel effect radiant convector. Before installation, ensure that the
local distribution condition (identification of the type of gas and pressure) and the
adjustment of the appliance are compatible. The data label is located at the rear of
the stove. The installation must be in accordance with these Instructions and
National Regulations and must be carried out by a qualified installer.

Any flue damper plate or flue restrictor must be removed or fixed permanently in
the fully open position, or shall only be fitted in accordance with National
Regulations.

If the chimney has previously been used to burn solid fuel, the chimney should be
swept before the stove is installed.

Before the stove is installed a flue test in accordance with National Regulations
should be carried out. The gas connection must be in accordance with National
Regulations.

The stove is fitted with a spillage monitoring system consisting of a thermal switch
connected to a thermocouple interrupter. This system is not adjustable, and must
not be put out of action. If any parts of the spillage monitoring system require
replacement only original manufacturers’ parts must be used.

All surfaces except the control knob and battery housing are considered to be
working surfaces.

The stove should not be used for any other purpose than as a room heater and a
decorative stove.

minimum thickness 12mm and be of sufficient size to accommodate the stove (see
Fig.1a/b).
Fire Surround & Shelves
It is recommended that a fire surround should not be closer than 400mm from the
stove, if manufactured from a combustible material.
A combustible shelf may be fitted provided that it is not more than 150mm deep and
there is at least 400mm clearance from the top of the stove.
Coal Arrangement
The coals/logs should only be arranged as shown in the layout given in the Installation
Instructions by a qualified person.
The stove must only be fitted with the ceramics supplied. DO NOT use any extra coals or
logs.
Flue Connection

The flue should be a minimum of 3m high and at least 125mm diameter or
equivalent area.

Horizontal or negative gradients in the flue pipe should be avoided.

It is recommended that a minimum height of 610mm from the stove should be
established before any significant change in the direction of the flue.

An optional rear flue attachment is available as an accessory from
www.esseparts.com (see Fig.1b).
Page 5
G500-G525-I02-070214

Lighting the Pilot
Depress control knob fully. Whilst depressed turn knob slowly through 80° anticlockwise to PILOT setting. Continue to depress the control knob, the pulse spark
ignitor should be heard and the pilot should light. Repeat until pilot is visibly lit. If
necessary, the operation of the spark can be viewed by temporarily opening the front
door.
Keep knob depressed at this point for 10-15 seconds and release the knob. The pilot
light will remain lit.
Page 8
G500-G525-I02-070214
Low Setting
If the pilot is not already lit, light the pilot as instructed.
With control knob at PILOT setting, depress and turn anti-clockwise to LOW setting
and release the knob.
High Setting
If the stove is not already lit on LOW setting, ignite stove to LOW setting as instructed.
Turn the control knob anti-clockwise until the HIGH setting is reached. Check that the
supply pressure and/or setting pressure are in accordance with that given in the
TECHNICAL INFORMATION section.
Turning the Stove OFF
From any heat setting, depress control knob fully and turn clockwise to PILOT position.
Disconnect the pressure gauge, replace the test point sealing screw and test for gas
soundness.
Turning the Pilot OFF
From any heat setting or the PILOT position, depress control knob fully and turn
clockwise to OFF position.
Fig 7 – G500/G525 Contemporary C series control knob.
CHECK FOR SPILLAGE
Close all doors and windows in the room containing the appliance. Light the stove and
turn the control knob to ‘HIGH’, leave the appliance for 5 minutes.
Apply a smoke match along the bottom edge of the draught diverter. The installation is
satisfactory if the smoke is drawn into the stove. If in doubt wait a further 10 minutes
and then repeat the test.
Page 9
G500-G525-I02-070214
If there is a nearby room with an extractor fan the spillage test should be repeated with
the fan running and all connecting doors between the stove and the fan left open.
If in doubt disconnect the appliance and seek expert advice.

Turning the Pilot OFF
From any heat setting or the PILOT position, depress control knob fully and turn
clockwise to OFF position.
SPILLAGE MONITORING SYSTEM
The stove is fitted with a spillage monitoring system which senses any excess
temperature due to a flue restriction or blockage. In this event the gas supply is
automatically turned off.
Should this occur then turn the control knob to the OFF position and wait approximately
10 minutes for the switch to automatically reset. Re-light the stove as described in
OPERATING THE STOVE section (page 13). If the stove repeatedly shuts itself off, DO
NOT use the stove and have the flue system checked by a qualified person.
This spillage monitoring system is not adjustable and must not be put out of action.
BATTERY REPLACEMENT
The battery required is a good quality AA size. This should only be replaced when the
stove is cold.
