VENTILATION AND CONFINED SPACE SAFETY INFORMATION
Your vent-free gas burner system SHALL NOT BE INSTALLED IN A CONFINED SPACE or unusually tight
construction unless provisions are made for adequate combustion and ventilation air.
• The National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 defines a confined space as a space whose volume is less
than 50 cu. ft. per 1,000 BTU per hour (4.8 meters 3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed
in that space.
• An unconfined space is a space where volume is at least 50 cu. ft. per 1,000 BTU per hour (4.8 meters 3 per kw)
of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that space.
• Rooms communicating directly with the space in which the appliances are installed, through openings not furnished
with doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.
WARNING: Do not install the unvented burner system
where the room is considered a confined
space (see Fig. 5-1).
To determine if the area where this burner system is to be
installed fits the definition of an unconfined space, multiply
the length of the room by the width of the room by the height
of the room, then multiply by 20. The result is the maximum
BTU allowed.
(Length x Width x Height x 20 = Maximum BTUs allowed)
Example: To install a Peterson Real-Fyre® vent-free gas
burner system with 36,000 BTU, maximum, in a space
with no other gas-burning appliances, the space MUST be
1,800 cu. ft. or larger.
Assuming an 8' ceiling, floor dimensions must be a minimum
of 225 sq. ft.,
i.e.; 18'x12.5'=225 sq ft (see Fig. 5-1).
IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO OPEN A WINDOW
SLIGHTLY (1"- 2") OR OTHERWISE INCREASE
VENTILATION. CONDITIONS REQUIRING THIS
INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:
1. Installation in a CONFINED SPACE.
2. Installation in a HOME OF UNUSUALLY
TIGHT CONSTRUCTION**.

CONDITIONS OF THE HOMEOWNER that
may be adversely impacted by combustion
products created by burning natural or
propane gas.
Installation in a tightly constructed home and/
or installation at high altitudes may cause your
vent-free burner system to produce excessive heat or
excessive moisture. The oxygen depletion sensor may
shut down the burner system. These conditions may be
corrected by opening a window or otherwise increasing
the number of air changes in the home.
L
L x W x H x 20 = Maximum BTU allowed
WARNING
If the area in which the heater may be operated is
smaller than that defined as an unconfined space or if
the building is of unusually tight construction, provide
adequate combustion and ventilation air by one of the
methods described in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for Combustion and Ventilation, or
applicable local codes.
REMEMBER
L x W x H x 20 = MAXIMUM BTUs ALLOWED
If the space is smaller than the above formula allows,
and/or smaller than the examples and diagrams on
this page specify, DO NOT install the vent-free burner
system unless provisions for additional combustion
and ventilation air are made.
**Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where:
a. Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a
continuous water vapor retarder with a rating of 1 perm (6x10-11 kg
per pa-sec-m2), or less with openings gasketed or sealed;
b. Weather stripping has been added on openable windows and
doors, and
c. Caulking or sealants are applied to areas such as joints around
window and door frames, between sole plates and floors, between
wall-ceiling joints, between wall panels, at penetrations for plumbing,
electrical, and gas lines, and at other openings.
The Peterson Real-Fyre® vent-free burner system
has been certified to function safely and reliably with
emission by-products well within accepted safety and
health standards. Your specific medical or physical
condition may render you more sensitive to products
created by burning natural or propane gas. If this is the
case, you should open a window or otherwise increase
ventilation.

MINIMUM CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLES
If the vent-free burner system is installed in a factory
built fireplace, follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for
minimum clearances to combustibles.
In the absence of such guidelines, follow the instructions
below:
Because of these variables, we cannot guarantee that
heat warping or discoloration will never occur. The
potential for heat warping or discoloration may exist
no matter what item(s) you are burning in the fireplace,
including wood.
Minimum clearances to
side walls and ceiling
Clearances to Combustible Construction:
Sidewalls: 16" from side of fireplace opening (Fig. 6-1).
Ceiling: 42" from top of fireplace opening (Fig. 6-1).
Flooring: See IN FRONT OF FIREPLACE section below.
Mantel: See ABOVE THE FIREPLACE section below &
42"
Fig. 6-1
Fig. 6-1. Also see Fig. x-1, & x-2 on following page).
Note: Clearances to combustible construction
are those distances required to ensure that
fireplace mantels, facings, walls, ceilings, and
floorings will not catch fire.
In most cases, these clearances should also be
adequate to prevent any discoloration or warping due
to heat. However, every gas burner installation presents
a different and unique set of circumstances involving
many variables beyond the control of the manufacturer.
These include paint or finish composition, previous
exposure to heat, methods and quality of construction,
air flow patterns, glass doors, fans or blowers, etc.
16"
Side wall:
Ceiling:
16" from side of fireplace opening.
42" from top of fireplace opening.
The dimensions in Fig. 6-1 are MINIMUM
CLEARANCES to maintain when you install this
burner system. BOTH SIDES of the fireplace opening
MUST BE AT LEAST 16" from any combustible
sidewalls. The ceiling MUST BE at least 42" from
the top of the fireplace opening.
fire-parts.com
IN FRONT OF THE FIREPLACE:
Be certain that combustible flooring material (i.e.: carpet, tile, etc.) is not too close to the vent-free unit. If the
vent-free burner system is at floor level or less than 6" above the floor, there MUST be at least 12" (1 foot) of
noncombustible material between the front of the fireplace and any combustible flooring.
ABOVE THE FIREPLACE:
To install the vent-free burner system, there must ALWAYS be noncombustible or heat resistant material
immediately above the fireplace opening. Heat resistant materials (i.e., marble or slate) must be at least 5/8"
thick. Sheet metal should not be installed onto combustible materials.
If you DO NOT install a fireplace hood, there MUST be at least 12" of noncombustible or heat resistant material
immediately above the fireplace opening (see A in Fig. x-1 on the following page). If you DO install a fireplace
hood, there MUST be at least 10" of noncombustible or heat resistant material immediately above the fireplace
opening (see B in Fig. x-2 on the following page). If there is a wooden mantel, shelf, or other combustible
projection above the fireplace, follow the information in the Figures on the next page.
EXAMPLE: If the fireplace has a combustible projection (mantel or shelf) 20" above the top of the firebox,
the maximum horizontal projection out from the face of the fireplace will be:
1. If a fireplace hood is not installed - 2.5" (see Fig. x-1 on the following page).
2. If a fireplace hood is installed ------ 10" (see Fig. x-2 on the following page).
A fireplace hood deflects heat away from the fireplace face and mantel, reducing the potential for heat related
warping or discoloration. The use of a fireplace hood is highly recommended.
IF YOU CANNOT MEET THESE MINIMUM CLEARANCES, YOU MUST OPERATE THE VENT-FREE
BURNER SYSTEM WITH THE CHIMNEY FLUE DAMPER OPEN.

WHEN USED AS A VENTED DECORATIVE APPLIANCE (PER ANSI Z21.60b-2004)
This appliance is for installation in a solid-fuel-burning fireplace (masonry fireplace or manufactured fireplace)
with a working flue and constructed of noncombustible material.
These gas logs may be installed as vented decorative log sets in compliance with ANSI Z21.60b-2004 and
National Fuel Gas Code, Section 6.6. The minimum permanent free opening of the fireplace chimney or chimney
damper must be met per the Chimney Vent Opening Table on pg 3 of this manual. Chimney damper must be
fixed in a manner to maintain permanent free opening at all times. To accomplish this, install a screw or bolt
in the edge of the damper to prevent closing, or drill holes in the damper or remove the damper.
CONNECTING THE GAS TO THE BURNER SYSTEM
BEFORE PROCEEDING, CAREFULLY READ ALL OF THE IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
CONTAINED IN THIS OWNER’S MANUAL, INCLUDING:
A. Pre-Installation and Fireplace Preparation Safety Guidelines
B. Ventilation and Confined Space Information
C. Installation Safety Guidelines
I M P O R T A N T
Be sure you have read and understand all safety precautions and warnings
contained
in this manual.
L.P.
Note: To install the unvented gas log set, the fireplace must have a gas-supply line that has been
installed by a qualified professional service technician in accordance with all local codes.
Refer to the PARTS LIST when installing the unvented gas log set.
Tools Required:
1. Adjustable open-ended wrench
4. Soapy water solution and brush for leak detection
2. Pliers
5. Standard screwdriver
3. L.P. gas-resistant pipe compound or Teflon tape
6. Manometer (for checking gas pressure)
fire-parts.com
CHECK GAS TYPE (natural or L.P.). The gas supply must be the same as stated on the gas log set
rating plate. If the gas supply is different, DO NOT INSTALL. Contact the dealer for immediate
assistance.
W A R N I N G
Do not connect this appliance directly to a high-pressure natural gas line or an unregulated L.P. tank.
Refer to the PARTS LIST when installing the unvented gas log set.
1. MAKE SURE THE FIREPLACE GAS SUPPLY IS TURNED OFF.
2. Center the burner assembly in the fireplace. Make certain that no part of the assembly protrudes beyond the
face of the fireplace.
3. Attach the large adapter fitting of the flex connector kit to the fireplace gas-supply line using pipe compound
resistant to L.P. gas or Teflon tape. Tighten the connection. Connect one end of flex connector to the large
adapter and the other end to the adapter on the valve assembly.
LEAK TESTING
Make sure that the control valve on the burner system is in the OFF position. Carefully turn on the gas to the
fireplace and leak test at all connections with a soapy water solution (equal parts liquid detergent and water). If
bubbles appear, a leak is present. Turn off the gas and tighten all connections, then turn on the gas and repeat
the leak test. Repeat until no leaks are detected.
NEVER USE A FLAME TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.
19
INSTALLATION
IMPORTANT
For all valves, the air MUST be purged from the gas line before the ODS pilot will light properly. The time taken to
do this will depend on the length of gas line from the meter to the unit and the length of time since the unit or gas
line was last used (in the case of non-use during warm weather, for example). It may take from 3-15 minutes before
all the air is purged and the ODS pilot will light properly. This is done using different methods, depending on which
valve is fitted to the unit. Follow the LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS in this manual for the specific valve type.
A. G18-24/30-01V(P) - Hold down control knob at PILOT (see Fig. 20-4).
B. G18-24/30-15(M)(P) - Hold in control knob at PILOT (see Fig. 20-3).
CONTROL SETTINGS
We recommend that before you install the log set, you familiarize yourself with the control valve layout. This
will help you to be confident operating the log set when fully installed. See the figures below for typical control
positions.

INSTALLATION (Cont.)
I M P O R T A N T
Check the gas pressure with the unvented gas log set burning and the control set to HIGH.
The gas log set and its main gas valve must be disconnected from the gas-supply piping system
during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa). The
gas log set must be isolated from the gas-supply piping system by closing its equipment shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas-supply piping system at test pressures equal
to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa). This is accomplished by closing the gas-supply line valve.
CHECKING GAS PRESSURE
Remote-capable safety pilot valve (15 series)
(Fig. 21-1)
Manual safety pilot valve
(Fig. 21-2)
Check the valve regulator pressure at the pressure
inlet point. Turn the inlet screw counterclockwise 2
or 3 turns and then place the tubing of the pressure
gauge over the pressure inlet point. (The test “inlet”
tap is farthest to the gas-supply inlet.) After taking the
pressure reading, turn the inlet screw clockwise firmly
to reseal. Do not over-torque. Check for gas leaks.
The pressure regulator is preset at the factory and
locked to discourage tampering. If the pressure is not
as specified, replace the regulator with the correct
part from the PARTS LIST in this manual. To check
the pressure, remove 1/8" pressure tap screw plug,
located on the side of the regulator body. Install fitting
and tubing of pressure gauge. With the unit operating,
take the pressure reading. Reinstall the pressure tap
screw and check for leaks when done.

Do not remove the rating plates or the warning tags. These are an integral safety and identification
component of this appliance.
During periods of heavy use, inspect the unvented gas log set frequently for evidence of sooting. If sooting is
present, discontinue use until the source of sooting is corrected.
CLEANING AND SERVICING THE ODS PILOT
fire-parts.com
Periodic cleaning and maintenance of the unvented gas log set is recommended to ensure that the log set operates
properly. Cleaning of the ODS pilot system is an important part of the maintenance program.
This ODS pilot cleaning procedure must be performed by a qualified professional service technician familiar
with the specific characteristics of the log set.
1. Turn the unvented gas log set to the OFF position and allow it to cool. Inspect the ODS pilot area (see Fig. 26-1)
for any visual contamination or debris (usually lint, hair, spider webs, or small insects). Lightly brush off all
external surfaces while vacuuming loosened debris from the ODS pilot opening. Be careful not to brush
any foreign material into the ODS pilot opening.
2. Clean out the air intake openings (see Fig. 26-1) by lightly brushing around the openings while vacuuming.
Note:
It is very important that the air intake openings be kept clear of debris. Should the openings become
blocked, the ODS pilot system will not operate properly.
3. Light the ODS pilot according to the relevant LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS page. Periodically verify the ODS pilot
flame appears as shown in the CHECKING THE ODS PILOT FLAME APPEARANCE section.
4. If the ODS pilot flame does not burn as indicated in the instructions, extinguish the ODS pilot by turning the
valve to the full OFF position. Using a compressed air duster, insert the flexible nozzle through the air intake
openings, ensuring that the nozzle is pointed toward the ODS pilot opening (see Fig. 26-1). Blow air through
the intake openings to clear out any debris that may be in the system.
5. Relight the ODS pilot and inspect it to be sure it is burning as shown in the instructions. If not, extinguish the
ODS pilot and turn off the gas supply to the gas log set. Using an adjustable or a 1/4" wrench, disconnect
the ODS pilot gas line (see Fig. 26-1) from the valve.
6. Insert the flexible nozzle of the compressed air duster and blow air into the input end of the ODS pilot gas line
to remove any blockages. Do not blow air directly into the ODS pilot opening. Blow air in the direction
of the gas flow.
7. Reinstall the ODS pilot gas line and check for leaks.
8. Light the ODS pilot to make sure it is operating properly (see LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS).
9. If the ODS pilot still does not operate properly, the ODS pilot may need to be replaced with the same model
as the one on the unvented burner.
26
OPERATING THE UNVENTED GAS LOG SET
Observe the flames. The main burner flames should be blue at the base and a
combination of blue/yellow at the body and at the tips. They should be 5" to 8" above
the logs, with the center flame being the tallest (see Fig. 27-1). Front flames in the
ember burner should be 1/4" above the embers.
Every Real-Fyre unvented gas log set leaves the factory tested and quality checked
to ensure that it has been manufactured to the strict specifications to which it was
submitted and approved for certification. This check includes an operational test
to ensure both satisfactory combustion and operation.
Each installation site for any unvented appliance presents its own unique combustion
Fig. 27-1
environment. Specific factors such as weather-tightness of the home, size of the
room in which the log set is installed, central heating, ceiling fans, altitude, drafts,
pet hair, carpet lint, dryer lint, the size of the fireplace, paint or soot inside the fireplace, etc. all have an influence
on the proper operation of an unvented appliance and its ODS pilot system. A normally operating unvented log
set will demonstrate the following characteristics:
•
A lively, realistic flame and front ember glow. The flame will be blue/yellow on the front burner and on the
rear burner.
•
Clean-burning combustion that will produce no soot or smoke after normal break-in.
•
Production of no odor, other than normal odors associated with the combustion of L.P. or natural gas.
•
Production of water vapor. Water vapor helps to increase indoor humidity, which may be beneficial during
the dry heating season.
fire-parts.com
If you operate the unvented gas log set fueled by L.P. gas, operating characteristics may vary as the fuel in the
tank approaches empty (less than 1/4 full). Sooting and other increases in combustion by-products will occur.
Turn off the log set and refill the L.P. tank.
CHECKING THE ODS PILOT FLAME APPEARANCE
WARNING: NO ADJUSTMENTS ARE TO BE MADE TO THE ODS PILOT SYSTEM. TAMPERING WITH
THIS SYSTEM CAN BE EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS.
When installing the burner assembly, it is important to visually check the ODS pilot flame and the burner
flames.
1. The ODS pilot flame must be present when the burner is operating. The flame should touch the top of the
thermocouple tip (Fig. 27-2 and Fig. 27-4).
2. If the ODS pilot flame does not touch the top of the thermocouple tip, then the main burner will not function
properly (see Fig. 27-3 and Fig. 27-5 for incorrect ODS pilot flame).
3. With the burners off and the ODS pilot flame off, and the assembly cool, check the burner assembly, air
intake openings on the ODS pilot, and air shutter openings on the burner for any blockages that could affect
the operation of the ODS pilot flame.
