VENTING INSTALLATION
WARNING: Read all instructions completely and
thoroughly before attempting installation. Failure to
do so could result in serious injury, property damage,
or loss of life. Operation of improperly installed and
maintained venting system could result in serious
injury, property damage, or loss of life.
NOTICE: Failure to follow these instructions will void
the warranty.
INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS
Consult local building codes before beginning installation. Only a
qualified service person should install venting system. The installer
must follow these safety rules:
• Wear gloves and safety glasses for protection
• Use extreme caution when using ladders or when on roof tops
• Be aware of electrical wiring locations in walls and ceilings
The following actions will void the warranty on your venting system:
• Installation of any damaged venting component
• Unauthorized modification of the venting system
• Installation of any component part not manufactured or approved
by IHP
• Installation other than as instructed by these instructions
Your IHP stove with B-vent burner system is approved for use with
any listed gas vent. A listed gas vent is a factory made and listed
system designed, and installed exclusively for removing products of
combustion, excess air, and dilution air resulting from burning fuel
gas. Metal vents, the most common type of vent, employ double wall
construction enclosing an insulating air space. This air space both
helps keep flue gases warm and reduce heat transferred to nearby
combustibles. This appliance is equipped with a safety control system
designed to protect against improper venting of combustion products.
It is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between
the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust. Certain limitations
apply to vent configurations and must be strictly followed.
10
WARNING: This gas stove with burner system and
vent assembly must be vented directly to the outside.
The venting system must NEVER be attached to a chimney serving a separate solid fuel burning appliance.
TYPE B-VENT INSTALLATION
(Listed B-0 or Greater)
Before beginning installation be sure that the overall height and gas
vent size conform to building code requirements. Gas vents extending
through pitched roofs can extend a minimum height of at least 600 mm
(2') higher than any obstruction within 3m (10'). Gas vents extending
through flat roofs are required to extend at least 600 mm (2') above the
roof and at least 600 mm (2') higher than any portion of the building
or adjoining building within 3m (10') of the gas vent.
• In absence of local codes, follow "Venting of Equipment" section of
the current National Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1 and the
Natural Gas Installation Code - vent sizings for Category I systems
using double wall B-1 vent pipe.
• Where the gas vent extends through accessible spaces, it should
be enclosed to avoid personal contact and damage. Enclosure
walls should have a fire rating equal to or greater than the floors
through which the gas vent passes except in single or two-family
dwellings.
• Situate the gas vent in the structure so that it can be installed
without cutting joists, sills, plates, or major load bearing partitions

INSTALLING VENT SYSTEM INTO CHASE
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose venting that
runs along the outside of a building. A chase is not required for such
venting.
NOTICE: Treatment of firestops and construction of
the chase may vary from building type to building
type. These instructions are not substitutes for the
requirements of local building codes. You must follow
all local building codes.
Note: When installing in a chase, you should insulate the chase as
you would the outside walls of your home. This is especially important in cold climates. Minimum clearance between vent pipes and
combustible materials such as insulation is 1".
Figure 9 - Vertical Venting Configuration Through Chimney
CHECKING VENT CAPACITY
Complete all gas piping, electrical, and vent connections. After adjusting the burner system and lighting the main burners, allow a couple of
minutes for warm-up. Hold a lighted match just under the rim of the
draft hood relief opening. Proper venting will draw the flame toward or
into the draft hood. Improper venting, indicated by escape or spillage of
burned gas, will cause match to flicker or go out. Smoke from a cigarette
will also be pulled into the draft hood if the vent is drawing properly.

• Complete familiarity with chimney condition, height, size, clearance
to combustibles and other factors is essential.
NOTICE: Consult the authority having jurisdiction
in your area regarding masonry chimney venting
applications.
NOTICE: A complete chimney inspection by a qualified
person should be performed.
• Appliances using B-vent connectors to vent into a masonry or factorybuilt chimney should not exceed 1½ feet in length for every inch of
connector diameter (3" vent connector has a maximum 4½ foot
length; 5" connector has maximum 7½ foot length).
• Oversized chimneys should be relined with appropriate listed relining systems.
• Clean out access may be required.
RELINING SYSTEMS
• Suitability and approval of relining materials should be determined.
• Condition, size, height, and termination of the chimney to be
relined must be determined.
• No substitution of components should be made.
• Joints and connectors should be made according to manufacturer’s
instructions.

HIGH ALTITUDE INSTALLATION
CAUSES OF SPILLAGE AND CORRECTIVE ACTION
Your IHP B-vent burner system has been tested and approved for
operation at altitudes in the USA from 0-2000 feet.
When installing this burner system at an elevation above 2000 feet
(in the USA), you may need to decrease the input rating by changing
the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Reduce input 4% for each
1000 feet above sea level. Check with your local gas company for
proper orifice size identification and proper orifice for your location.
For assistance with any high altitude installation contact IHP’s Technical Service Department at Superiorfireplaces.US.com
Incorrect Vent Sizing
If the vent is too small or too short, spillage may occur. If the vent is
too large, excessive dilution air may cool flue gases and reduce draft,
causing spillage. The vent cap size should also be checked. Check
manufacturer’s instructions, appliance input rating, and appropriate
sizing tables.
TROUBLESHOOTING VENTING PROBLEMS
Obstructions
Small animals or birds may get into and block the vent or draft hood
outlet. Dust, lint, and foreign objects may obstruct air inlets. Remove
obstructions and clean openings.
Most venting problems are caused by incorrect vent sizing, improper
installation, or inadequate air supply. A preliminary check for a field
problem might include:
• Checking the vent sizing according to manufacturer’s specifications,
appliance input, and venting configuration
• Examining the entire venting system for faults such as disconnected
joints for damaged vent sections
• Making sure vent and air openings are not obstructed
If these procedures do not reveal the source of the problem, troubleshooting may include attention to common venting problems.
FLUE GAS SPILLAGE
Spillage occurs when flue gases cannot exit the vent system and back
up into the dwelling. A primary symptom of appliances equipped
with a Vent Safety Shutoff System (flue spill switch) is unexplained
appliance shutoffs. Other symptoms of flue gas spillage at the draft
hood include condensation on walls and windows and/or noticeable
odors. Spillage may also result in the release of carbon monoxide,
a colorless, odorless, highly toxic gas. A simple spillage test can be
conducted if spillage is suspected. See Checking Gas Connection,
page 16.
14
Venting Condition
Loose joints can affect draft and cause spillage. “Mashed” vent sections and damaged vent caps can restrict flow and cause spillage.
Examine and replace as needed.
Lateral Run
Lengthy horizontal or non-vertical runs cause resistance to flow and
may reduce draft enough to cause spillage. The pitch of lateral runs
can also be a problem; lateral runs should be pitched 1/4" rise per
foot of horizontal run from the appliance to the vent.
Elbows
Too many elbows cause excessive restriction of flow and may result
in spillage. Usually, two 90º turns can be tolerated in a properly sized
venting system. More than two may cause problems and necessitate
changing the system.
Flue Gas Cooling
Venting exposed to extremely cold temperatures or venting of single
wall construction loses heat needed to maintain draft; massive masonry chimneys absorb needed heat. If the flue gases cool excessively,
draft is reduced and spillage may result. Use proper materials, insulate
and protect properly, reline when necessary.
Down Drafts
In certain wind conditions and in certain relationships with nearby
structures and objects, high pressure conditions may affect draft
negatively. Relocate the vent cap, raise its height, or use an approved
high wind cap.

INSTALLATION
NOTICE: This burner system is intended for use as
supplemental heat. Use this burner system along with
your primary heating system. Do not install this stove
and burner system as your primary heat source. If you
have a central heating system, you may run system’s
circulating blower while using appliance. This will
help circulate the heat throughout the house. These
appliances are designed for use as a supplemental
stove. They are not intended for continuous use as a
primary heat source.
CHECK GAS TYPE
Use proper gas type for the burner system unit you are installing.
If you have conflicting gas types, do not install burner system. See
dealer where you purchased the stove and burner system for proper
burner system according to your gas type. Conversion kits are also
available for these models, see Accessories on page 29.
IMPORTANT: If installing gas conversion kit, do so at this time. Be
sure to follow all installation instructions included with conversion kit.
INSTALLING GAS PIPING TO STOVE LOCATION
WARNING: A qualified installer or service person
must connect burner system to gas supply. Follow all
local codes.
For propane/LP connections only, the installer must supply an external
regulator. The external regulator will reduce incoming gas pressure.
You must reduce incoming gas pressure to between 11" and 14" of
water. If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure, appliance regulator
damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing
down as shown in Figure 14. Pointing the vent down protects it from
freezing rain or sleet.
CAUTION: Use only new, black iron or steel pipe.
Internally-tinned copper tubing may be used in certain areas. Check your local codes. Use pipe of 1/2"
diameter or greater to allow proper gas volume to
burner system. If pipe is too small, undue loss of
volume will occur.
Installation must include an equipment shutoff valve, union, and
plugged 1/8" NPT tap. Locate NPT tap within reach for test gauge hook
up. NPT tap must be upstream from burner system (see Figure 15).
Check your building codes for any special requirements for locating
equipment shutoff valve to stoves.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT threads. This will prevent
excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could
result in clogged burner system valves.
WARNING: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant
to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
CAUTION: For propane/LP units, never connect
burner system directly to the propane/LP supply. This
burner system requires an external regulator (not supplied). Install the external regulator between the burner
system and propane/LP supply.
Installation Items Needed
Before installing stove and burner system, make sure you have the
items listed below.
• external regulator (supplied by installer)
• piping (check local codes)
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• equipment shutoff valve *
• test gauge connection *
• sediment trap
• tee joint
• pipe wrench
• approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if allowed by local
codes) (not provided)
* An equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable
alternative to test gauge connection. Purchase the equipment shutoff
valve from your dealer.

INSPECTING BURNERS
Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame patterns often.
PILOT ASSEMBLY
The pilot assembly is factory preset for the proper flame height.
Alterations may have occurred during shipping and handling. Call a
qualified service person to readjust the pilot if necessary.
The height of the thermopile must be 3/8" to 1/2" above the pilot flame
as shown in Figure 35. The flame from the pilot burner must extend
beyond the thermopile.
If your pilot assembly does not meet these requirements:
• turn burner system off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 22)
•see Troubleshooting, page 25
Thermopile
BURNER FLAME PATTERN
Burner flames will be steady; not lifting or floating. Flame patterns will
be different from unit to unit and will vary depending on installation
type and weather conditions.
If the vent configuration is installed incorrectly, the flames will lift or
“ghost”. This can be dangerous. Inspect the flames after installation
to ensure proper installation and performance.
Figure 36 shows a typical flame pattern. If burner flame pattern differs
from that described:
• turn burner system off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 22)
•see Troubleshooting, page 25.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Turn off burner system and let cool
before cleaning.
CAUTION: You must keep control areas, burners,
and circulating air passageways of stove with burner
system clean. Inspect these areas of stove and burner
system before each use. Have burner system inspected
yearly by a qualified service person. Burner system
may need more frequent cleaning due to excessive
lint from carpeting, bedding material, pet hair, etc.
GLASS DOOR
WARNING: Handle glass door panel with care.
Do not strike, slam or otherwise abuse glass. Do not
operate burner system with the glass door removed,
cracked, or broken.
WARNING: Do not use abrasive cleaners as this may
damage glass. Use a non-abrasive household glass
cleaner to clean glass. Do not clean glass when hot.
Glass must be cleaned periodically. During start-up it is normal for
condensation to form on the inside of the glass causing lint, dust,
and other airborne particles to cling to the glass surface. During initial
start-up a slight film may form on the glass due to paint curing. The
glass should be cleaned several times with a non-ammonia, nonabrasive household cleaner and warm water after the first two weeks
of operation. Thereafter, clean the glass two or three times during each
heating season, depending on the usage and circumstances present.
Refer to Removing/Replacing Glass Door on page 19 of this manual
when removing glass door for cleaning.
PILOT AND BURNERS
• Remove ember material before cleaning burners and replace when
cleaning is complete.
• Burner and controls should be cleaned with compressed air to
remove dust, dirt, or lint.
• Use a vacuum cleaner or small, soft bristled brush to remove excess
dust, dirt, or lint.
LOGS
• If you remove logs for cleaning, refer to Installing Logs, Volcanic
Stone, and Glowing Embers, page 20, to properly replace logs.
• Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any carbon build-up on logs.
• Replace log(s) if broken. See Replacement Parts on page 29.
• Replace ember material periodically as needed. See Replacement Parts on page 29.
VENTING SYSTEM
Conduct annual inspection of the venting system following these
guidelines:
1. Check areas of venting system that are exposed to the weather
for corrosion (rust spots or streaks and, in extreme cases, holes).
Have these items replaced immediately by a qualified service
person.
2. Remove the vent cap and shine a flashlight into the vent. Remove
any foreign material.
3. Check for evidence of excessive condensation. Continuous condensation can cause corrosion of caps, pipes, and fittings and can
be caused by having excessive lateral runs, too many elbows, or
exterior portions of the system being exposed to cold weather.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe section or fitting has been
disturbed and loosened. Check mechanical supports such as wall
straps for rigidity.
WARNING: Only parts supplied by the manufacturer
should be used when replacing broken or damaged
glass door panel (see Replacement Parts, page 29).
This glass door panel is a complete unit. No substitute
materials may be used.
CAUTION: Wear gloves and safety glasses while
handling or removing broken glass. Do not remove if
glass is hot. Keep children and pets away from glass.
If glass has been broken, carefully remove glass door (see Removing/
Replacing Glass Door, page 19). Vacuum all glass pieces with a shop vac.
Use only the ceramic glass door replacement intended for this burner
system (see Replacement Parts, page 29 for details on ordering). No
substitutions may be made. See Removing/Replacing Glass Door,
page 19 for instructions for replacing glass door.
WARNING: Do not operate burner system with the
glass door removed, cracked, or broken.
