FIREPLACE INSTALLATION
SELECTING LOCATION
To determine safest and most efficient location
for fireplace, you must take into consideration
the following guidelines:
1. Location must allow for proper clearances
(see Figures 1 and 2).
2. Consider a location where fireplace will
not be affected by drafts, air conditioning
ducts, windows or doors.
3. A location that avoids cutting of joists or
roof rafters will make installation easier.
4. An outside air kit is available with this
fireplace (see Optional Outside Air Kit on
page 7).

3. Set fireplace directly in front of this opening and slide unit back until nailing flanges
touch side framing.
4. Check level of fireplace and shim with
sheet metal if necessary.
5. Before securing fireplace to prepared
framing, ember protector must be placed
between hearth extension (not included)
and under bottom front edge of fireplace
to protect against glowing embers falling
through. If fireplace is to be installed on
a raised platform, a Z-type ember protector (not included) must be fabricated to
fit your required platform height. Ember
protector should extend under fireplace a
minimum of 1 1/2". Ember protector should
be made of galvanized sheet metal (28
gauge minimum) to prevent corrosion.
6. Using screws or nails, secure fireplace to
framing through flanges located on sides
of fireplace.
* Not required at nailing flanges
** See step 2 of Framing
WARNING: Do not pack required air spaces with insulation
or other materials.
Minimum/Maximum Chimney Height
Minimum height of chimney, measured from
base of fireplace to flue gas outlet of termination, is 14.5 feet for straight flue or a flue with
one elbow set. Maximum distance between
elbows is 6 feet. For systems with two elbow
sets, minimum height is 22 feet. Maximum
height of any system is 50 feet. This measurement includes fireplace, chimney sections and
height of termination assembly at level of flue
gas outlet (see Figure 18, page 11).

HEARTH EXTENSION
A hearth extension projecting a minimum of
16" in front of and a minimum of 8" beyond
each side of fireplace opening is required to
protect combustible floor construction in front
of fireplace. Fabricate a hearth extension
using a material which meets the following
specifications: a layer of noncombustible,
inorganic material having a thermal conductivity of K=0.84 BTU IN/FT, HR. F (or less) at 1"
thick. For example, if material selected has
a K factor of 0.25, such as glass fiber, the
following formula would apply:
0.25 x 1.0" = 0.30" thickness required
0.84
Thermal conductivity "K" of materials can be
obtained from manufacturer or supplier of
noncombustible material. If hearth extension
is to be covered, use noncombustible material such as tile, slate, brick, concrete, metal,
glass, marble, stone, etc. Provide a means
to prevent hearth extension from shifting and
seal gap between fireplace frame and hearth
extension with a noncombustible material
(see Figure 3).
WARNING: Hearth extension
is to be installed only as shown
in Figure 3.

ASSEMBLY AND INSTALLATION OF
DOUBLE WALL CHIMNEY SYSTEM
installing double wall snap-lock chimney together, it is important to assure joint between
chimney sections is locked. Check by pulling
chimney upward after locking. Chimney will
not come apart if properly locked. It is not
necessary to add screws to keep chimney together (exception - see Figure 11, page 9).
Each double wall chimney section consists
of a galvanized outer pipe, a stainless steel
inner flue pipe and a wire spacer. Pipe sections must be assembled independently as
chimney is installed. When connecting chimney directly to fireplace, inner flue pipe section must be installed first with lanced side
up. Outer pipe section can then be installed
over flue pipe section with hemmed end up.
Press down on each pipe section until lances
securely engage hem on fireplace starter.
Wire will assure proper spacing between
inner and outer pipe sections.
Note: For Canada, use chimney parts designated HT.
USING ELBOW OFFSETS (30E-8DM)
1. To achieve desired offset, you may install
combinations of 12", 18", 24", 36" and
48" length of double wall pipe (see offset
chart, page 7, and Figure 9).
Note: For systems with 2 elbow sets, minimum height is 22 feet. Maximum height
for any system is 50 feet.
2. Chimney weight above offset rests on
return elbow. Straps must be securely
nailed to rafters or joists (see Figure 10,
details A and B, page 9).
3. Maximum length of pipe between supports
(return elbow or 12S-8DM) is 6' of angle
run. Maximum of two 6' angle run sections
per chimney system (see Figure 9).
4. All pipe connections between offset and
return must be secured with two screws
on outer pipe only (see Figure 11, page
9). Do not penetrate inner stainless.
Opening in collar around
chimney at top of fireplace must
not be obstructed. Never use
blown insulation to fill chimney
enclosure.
Continue to assemble chimney sections as
outlined, making sure that both inner and
outer pipe sections are locked together. When

FIRESTOP SPACERS (3600FS-8DM-1)
Firestop spacers are required at each point
where chimney penetrates a floor space.
Their purpose is to establish and maintain
required clearance between chimney and
combustible materials. When pipe passes
through a framed opening into a living space
above, firestop must be placed onto ceiling
from below as shown in Figure 12.
They also provide complete separation from
one floor space to another or attic space as
required by most codes. When double wall
pipe passes through a framed opening into
an attic space, firestop must be placed into
an attic floor as shown in Figure 13.
4. Remove shingles around opening measured. Cut out this section.
5. Add next sections of pipe until end
penetrates roof line. Check to see that
proper clearances are maintained. Extend
chimney by adding sections of double wall
pipe until pipe is minimum of 30" above
highest point of roof cutout. Termination
and chimney must extend a minimum of
36" above highest point where it passes
through roof.

PENETRATING ROOF
To maintain a 2" clearance to pipe on a roof with
a pitch, a rectangular opening must be cut.
1. Determine center point where pipe will
penetrate the roof.
2. Determine center point of the roof. Pitch
is the distance the roof drops over a given
span, usually 12". A 6/12 pitch means that
the roof drops 6" for each 12" measure
horizontally down from roof rafters.
3. Use roof opening chart (Figure 14) to
determine correct opening length and
flashing required.

FLASHING INSTALLATION (V6F8DM OR V12F-8DM)
Determine flashing to be used with roof opening chart. Slide flashing over pipe until base is
flat against roof. Replace as many shingles as
needed to cover exposed area and flashing
base. Secure in position by nailing through
shingles (see Figure 15, page 11). DO NOT
NAIL THROUGH FLASHING CONE.
Installing Flashing on a Metal Roof
When installing flashing on a metal roof, it
is required that putty tape be used between
flashing and roof. Flashing must be secured
to roof using #8 x 3/4" screws and then sealed
with roof coating to prevent leakage through
screw holes. A roof coating must also be applied around perimeter of flashing to provide
a proper seal.

CHASE INSTALLATIONS
Instructions for chase installations are included with chase style termination chosen. In a
multiple chase installation, be sure to provide
adequate distance between terminations to
prevent smoke spillage from one termination
to another. We suggest that terminations be
separated at least 24", center to center and
stacked at a vertical height difference of 18"
(see Figure 18, page 12).
Note: If a decorative shroud is to be installed,
contact manufacturer for specifications.

1. Remove knockout indentation on refractory or firebrick wall located above refractory
hearth floor. Knockout indentation must
be firmly tapped with any solid object,
such as a 1/2" dowel, until it is released.
Remove fragmented portions of refractory
(see Figure 21).
2. Remove gas line cover plate located on
either side of fireplace and pull out insulation from gas line conduit sleeve. Save
insulation for reuse.
3. Run a 1/2" black iron gas line into fireplace through rear at gas line conduit
sleeve (if using a raised platform, add
height). Provide sufficient gas line into
fireplace chamber for fitting connection
(see Figure 22).
Note: Secure incoming gas line to wood
framing to provide rigidity for threaded
end.
4. Repack insulation around gas line and into
sleeve opening. Seal any gaps between
gas line and refractory knockout hole with
refractory cement or commercial furnace
cement. Install gas appliance or cap off
gas line if desired.
CAUTION: All gas piping and
connections must be tested for
leaks after installation is completed. After ensuring that gas
valve is on, apply soap and water
solution to all connections and
joints. Bubbles forming show a
leak. Correct all leaks at once.
DO NOT USE AN OPEN FLAME
FOR LEAK TESTING AND DO
NOT OPERATE ANY APPLIANCE
IF A LEAK IS DETECTED. LEAK
TESTING SHOULD BE DONE
BY A QUALIFIED SERVICE
PERSON.
Note: A FMI PRODUCTS, LLC hood must be
installed when using an unvented gas log set
(see Accessories on page 18).
WARNING: Do not operate an
unvented gas log set in this fireplace with chimney removed.
If you install a decorative gas appliance
(vented gas log), decorative gas appliance
must comply with the Standard for Decorative
Gas Appliance for Installation in Solid Fuel
Burning Fireplaces, ANS Z21.60 or Z21.84
and shall also be installed in accordance with
the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI 7223NFPA
54 latest edition.

WARNING: If the fireplace
has been used for wood burning, firebox and chimney must
be cleaned of soot, creosote and
ashes be a qualified chimney
cleaner. Creosote will ignite if
heavily heated.
WARNING: When using
a decorative vented gas log,
damper must be removed or
permanently locked in fully open
position and glass doors must
be in fully open position.
OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
GLASS DOORS
Glass doors are optional with this fireplace.
When fireplace is in operation, doors must be
fully opened or fully closed position only or a
fire hazard may be created (see Figure 23).
A fireplace equipped with glass doors operates much differently than a fireplace with an
open front. A fireplace with glass doors has a
limited amount of air for combustion. Excessive heat within fireplace can result if too large
a fire is built or if combustion air gate is not
completely open.
The following tips should be used to assure
that both fireplace and glass door retain
their beauty and function properly. Both the
flue damper and glass doors must be fully
opened before starting a fire. This will provide
sufficient combustion air and maintain safe
temperatures in firebox.
IMPORTANT: The glass must be allowed
to warm slowly and evenly. Tempered glass
will withstand a gradual temperature rise to
550° F, which is more than a normal fire will
generate. Such materials as pitch/wax laden
logs, very dry mill end lumber and large
amounts of paper or cardboard boxes can
create an excessively hot fire and should not
be burned in this fireplace. Always keep fire
back from doors and never allow flames to
contact glass.
WARNING: Fireplaces
equipped with glass doors
should be operated only with
doors fully opened or doors fully
closed. Doors, if left partly open,
may draw gas and flame out of
the fireplace opening creating
risks of both fire and smoke.

Cleaning Glass
Clean glass with any commercial glass
cleaner or soap and water. Do not use any
abrasive material to clean the glass. Do not
clean glass with any cool water if glass is still
hot from fire and smoke.
A gas line or gas log lighter may be installed
for the purpose of installing a vented or ventfree decorative gas appliance incorporating an
automatic shutoff device and complying with
the Standard for Decorative Gas Appliances
for Installation in Vented Fireplaces, ANSI
Z21.60 or American Gas Association draft
requirements for Gas Fired Log Lighters for
Wood Burning Fireplaces, Draft NO. 4 dated
August, 1993.
If you wish to install an unvented (vent-free)
gas log set, only unvented gas log sets which
have been found to comply with the standard
for unvented room heaters, ANSI Z21.11.2 are
to be installed in this fireplace.
