The Escea AF-Series gas fire is a room sealed gas appliance designed to be built into a masonry cavity
or a false chimney cavity. The AF-Series fireplace is provided with standoff rails installed to the
outside of the chassis to attain a zero clearance rating. The appliances is flued using co-linear flexible
aluminium flue for masonry installations and 4” x 6” co-axial direct vent steel flue for false chimney
installations. The user will control their fire with the Radio Frequency (RF) remote that will normally
be located in it’s wall mount cradle. In addition to the RF remote the appliance has a single auxiliary
On/Off button on the unit. When not in operation it is in a standby mode unless it is physically isolated
from the mains supply.

Masonry Installation Requirements
B
A
The masonry install requires a spacer below the appliance to allow room for the fascia to sit flush with
the ground.
Floor Clearances
If the appliance is mounted above a “hard floor” (including but not necessarily limited to: wood, wood
veneers, ceramic tiles, concrete and stone) then it may be positioned with the bottom of the fascia
coincident with the finished floor if desired. Note: The appliance has been tested and certified to
AS4553:2008 and the maximum allowable temperature rise above ambient of any combustible floor
is ΔT of 65C. Therefore any material used must be chosen to be able to operate without damage or
degradation with a ΔT of 65C.
If the appliance is mounted above a “Soft floor” ” (including but not necessarily limited to: carpets,
Vinyl, carpet tiles, rugs and mats) then we recommend a distance of 100mm from the bottom of the
fascia to the finished floor.
Refer to section B4 for hearths.

Hearth
A Hearth is not required, however it may be used for decorative purposes or for protection of soft/sensitive flooring as stated in section B2 to allow a smaller floor clearance. The hearth should not obscure
the front face of the fire, must protrude at least 200mm from the face of the fireplace and be at least
the width of the appliance.
D
B6
Cavity Base
This appliance MUST be fully supported on its base. The base must extend over the entire area of
the underside of the appliance. The base must also be levelled to prevent vibration from possible fan
imbalance. M5 Standoffs (circled in the diagram below) may be used to screw in any feet with an M5
thread to level the rear of the fireplace inside the cavity. The base of the cavity must be strong enough
to support 80kgs.

Wall Linings
G
SERVICE
NOTE: for false cavity installations, DO NOT line the wall before the fireplace has been fitted into
the cavity; the top standoffs are required to be upright for this installation type.
The AF-Series fireplace is zero clearance rated with the standoff rails installed on the ouside of the
chassis. The standoff rails may only be removed when installing the fire into a masonry cavity.
The side-front flanges of the appliance must be on top of the finished wall surface in order for the
fascia to mount properly. Take into account any plaster board, tiles or any other finishing surface that
may be intended for the finished wall surface.
The wall board that lines the outside of this opening can be normal dry wall (plaster board) and does
not need to be non-combustible.
If for some reason the cavity dimensions exceed those specified in section B1 a register plate is available (New Zealand Only) for purchase through your local escea distributor.
Note: The temperature of the wall lining directly above the heater does get warm and hence may
discolour paint finishes that are susceptible to temperature damage or distort vinyl wall coverings. For
durability of finishes and surfaces you should contact the relevant manufacturer for their specification.
12
B8
Mantle Clearance
B
A
Please refer to the diagram below. Mantles
or protruding ledges mounted above the
heater that are made from combustible
materials, must not extend outside of the
dimensions shown below.
B9
Television Clearances
C
The following are the recommended
minimum clearances for the location of any
electrical equipment (such as Plasma TV, LCD TV
or home theatre) above an Escea AF-Series gas fire.
Use either a shelf or mantle below your TV screen
or alternatively you can construct a recess to mount
your TV screen into.
E
D
Note: The above television clearance recommendations are to be treated as a suggestion of a suitable
installation only. It is the responsibility of the end
user to check the installation instructions of their
electrical appliances to ensure that the location in
relation to the gas fire is suitable. Escea in no way
guarantees or takes responsibility that the above installation suggestion will be suitable for all electrical
or home entertainment appliances.

Flue Restrictor Adjustment
The flue restrictors are adjusted by removing the firebox baffle inside the firebox by removing a screw
in the centre rear of the baffle; once removed the baffle can be lifted up then out. The restrictors
are a simple sheetmetal part with a finger fold, allowing the installer to bend the flue restrictor open
or closed (flat) with his/her hands or pliers. The flue diagrams in section C7, C8, C9 & C10 refer to
different restrictor setups for different flue configurations. Use the following index for creating the
correct restriction:

SERVICE
Ensure all rigid flue components are Simpson Duravent Direct Vent Pro 4” x 6,” no other flue
types may be used.
Use the diagrams in sections C7, C8, C9 & C10 to check if your proposed flue system is
acceptable. Section C11 will also need to be used to determine whether the flue terminal
location meets the requirements of AS/NZS 5601. Then use the table following section C11 to work
out the quantities of the flue components that are required.

If using a 45° offset in your installation, consult the chart below to select the required flue length
to give the desired offset. 1½” (38mm) will still need to be subtracted from each of the 45° bends
to allow for the joins.
SERVICE
•
E
D
•
B
•
•
The appliance comes with 300mm of flexi flue (compressed) and a converter box to convert the
appliance to rigid flueing.
Any offsets in your flue configuration should be 45° where possible.
If your flue configuration has a horizontal run, there must be a minimum 1° inclination (20mm
vertical rise per 1m horizontal run) leading upwards towards the termination.
Do not install the flue with horizontal sections sloping down towards the termination. This could
cause the fire to operate incorrectly and possibly create an unsafe condition.
This flue system cannot be cut to length. Correct lengths must be selected for each installation.
For a full list of available flue lengths, contact your Escea retailer.
The listed length of the flue pipe is not the installed length. 1 ½” (38mm) needs to be subtracted
for each join to determine the installed length of each piece of flue pipe.
E.g. 48” length has installed length of 45”.
All vertical measurements should be measured from the top surface of the fireplace casing itself
(not the fascia).
When using 90° elbows in the installation, use the diagram below to help calculate installations
horizontal and vertical distances. 1½” (38mm) will still need to be subtracted from each join.
When using horizontal flue runs, vertical measurements should be measured to the centre line of
the horizontal flue pipes (as shown in diagram below).

Adjustable lengths are available depending on stock levels. Contact escea for more information.
The flue must maintain the following clearances to combustible materials; 25mm from all sides and
bottom of the flue, and 50mm from the top of the flue:
B
C
D
C3
Supporting the Direct Vent flue system
Wall straps are required to fix the Direct Vent flue system in place for each installation. This will ensure
that no undue strain is placed on flue components once installed.
E
For a flue offset or horizontal run, it is recommended that wall straps be used to secure the flue system
with a spacing of 900mm between straps. Plumbers strapping / tape can be used to connect the wall
straps to the building structure where there are large distances between the support point and the
anchor point.
For vertical flue runs it is recommended that wall straps be used to anchor the flue system
with a spacing of 1200mm between straps.
F
C4 Sealing ‘Through Roof’ and ‘Through Wall’ Penetrations
For ‘through roof’ penetrations, use a Deck-tite flashing or equivalent to create a weather-tight seal
between the flue and the roof cladding.
G
For ‘through wall’ penetrations, this will require the use of a Wall Thimble. The Wall Thimble will ensure
you have suitable clearance from combustibles as well as sealing the penetration. The section of the
wall thimble installed on the external surface of the wall should be sealed to the wall using a high temperature sealant such as a High Temperature RTV Silicone or equivalent. Additional sealant is required
to seal the Terminal Cap to the external wall. A bead should be run along the edge of the Terminal that
will be in contact with the wall once installed.
SERVICE
16
Twist locking procedure
Before connecting flue components, to ensure an airtight seal run a single 7-8mm bead of High Temperature RTV Silicone or equivalent, on the ‘male’ end of the flue as shown in the diagram below.
A
C5
The four indentations located on the female end of the flue are designed to slide straight onto the male
ends of the adjacent flue length, by orienting the four flue indentations so they match and slide into
the four entry slots on the male ends.
B
Push the pipe sections completely together, then twist-lock one section clockwise approximately
one-quarter turn, until the two sections are fully locked.
D
C
Wipe off any excess sealant from the exterior of the flue joint.
Installing Converter Box
The AF-Series fireplace only comes with a spigot plate suited for flexi flue, because of this, a converter
box is required to convert a 300mm, 4” and 3” flexi flue length to Simpsons Duravent 4” x 6” direct
vent flueing.
The converter box must be appropriately secured and should not take the weight of the duravent rigid
flue; rigid flueing should be secured by wall straps as stated in section C3.
NOTE: The joists used to support the converter box from below MUST still maintain clearances from
the flexi pipes.
E

SERVICE
G
F
Combustible clearances for the converter box are as shown in a diagram in section B3

Locate the 30cms long piece of fibreglass tape in the accessory pack provided with the
AF-Series fire.
Remove the tape backing and adhere it to the Exhaust spigot of the Co-axial transition box
spigot approximately 10mm off the face of the planer surface of the transition box.
B
C
Locate the 100mm exhaust flexi flue. Stretch the flexi flue to the desired length ensuring
that the end part that fits onto the exhaust spigot is completely extended (stretched).
Locate the exhaust flue onto the exhaust spigot over the fibreglass tape.
D
E
Locate 1 X 100mm diameter stainless steel band clamp provided with the flexi flue kit.
Mark, centre punch and drill 3 x 4.0mm diameter holes approximately equally spaced
around the diameter of the band clamp.
F
G
SERVICE
18
A
Place the band clamp over the exhaust flexi flue. Position the band so that it aligns with the
fibreglass tape underneath (approximately 15mm off the planar surface of the transition
box). Tighten the band clamp.
C
B
ONLY TIGHTEN ENOUGH TO JUST HOLD AND PREVENT THE FLEXI FLUE FROM COMING OFF THE SPIGOT IF PULLED ON. OVER TIGHTENING THE CLAMP WILL CRUSH &
DAMAGE THE FLEXI FLUE.
D
Pilot drill 3 X 3.00 diameter holes through the previously drilled holes in the band clamp and
into and through both the flexi flue and the exhaust spigot.
Screw a stainless steel self-tapping screw (provided with the fibre glass tape) into each of
the 3 holes.
F
E
Ensure that the joint is sound and secure.
The steel ‘flashing plate’ provided with the 46DVA-CT collinear kit may be used (if desired)
to force distances to combustible materials and provide a platform to screw onto
appropriately placed wooden joists (supports).

The AF-Series fireplace has a simple interface for connection to a home automation system. Simply
put this allows the fireplace to be woken up and started and then shut down. The “Close to wake” connection shown is essentially taking one of the 3.3 volt DC pins on the fireplace micro controller and
pulling it down to ground. In order to isolate the fireplace from the automaton system a relay needs
to be used as shown. This allows you to use any nominal voltage to drive the relay while keeping the
fireplaces 3.3V supply isolated.

D
E
Relay closed
The fireplace will start in a medium setting until it receives a signal from the remote control unit (up to
3 minutes). Once the remote has communicated with the fireplace it will turn on and begin operating
the fireplace thermostatically. The remote will use whatever temperature the user has previously set
and cannot be altered by the home automation system. The fireplace will continue to operate while the
relay is closed.
Note: If the fireplace cannot communicate with the remote controller within 10 minutes of the relay
contact closure then the fireplace will shut down and return to standby. The remote controller is
required to be operating within range of the fireplace for its safe operation.
F
Relay open
If the fireplace was operating with a closed relay then upon opening the relay contacts the fireplace will
shut down and return the remote controller to its standby mode when it next updates (up to 3 minutes). While the relay is open the fireplace will be in standby mode and available for manual operation
by the user.

Normal Operating Sounds and Smells
Note: Each time the fire is lit from cold the glass may fog up with condensation. This is normal and the
condensation will disappear within a few minutes once the glass heats up.

D
•
Fan:
Escea gas appliances use electric fans to push heated air further into the room. It is not unusual for the fan to make a “whirring” sound when ON. This sound will increase or decrease
in volume depending on the speed setting of your fan.
Gas Control Valve:
As the gas control valves turn ON and OFF, a dull clicking sound may be audible, this is
the normal operation of a valve. When the fire is switched off after being run for a while,
there may be popping and fluttering noises as the residual gas in the burners burns away.
These are normal and should be no cause for concern.
C
B
Sounds
It is possible that you will hear some sounds from your gas appliance. This is perfectly normal due to
the fact that there are various types of materials used within your appliance. Listed below are some
examples (These are all normal operating sounds and should not be considered as defects in your
appliance):
Unit Body/Firebox:
Different types and thicknesses of steel will expand and contract at different rates resulting
in some “cracking” and “ticking” sounds being heard throughout the heating and cool down
processes.
Smells:
The first few times the unit is operated, the unit may release an odour and the flames will appear
orange caused by the curing of the paint, the burning off of the starch in the gas logs and the oils in the
metal. This is a temporary curing process which will disappear with use.
Cleaning the glass
G
A deposit on the inside of the inner glass, caused by the starch in the logs, may appear as a build up
after several uses. If this film is not removed, it will bake on and may become difficult to remove. When
the inner and outer glass is cold, remove both and clean the inside of the inner glass with a non-abrasive cleaner.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT. NEVER OPERATE THE UNIT
WITH THE GLASS REMOVED.

of persistent or repeated shutdown errors, action must be taken immediately to find and repair the
fault.
Suggestion action
Flame Failure or
Power Flue trip
E
Note: This error has a permanent lock out and will require the unit to be reset
after the initial error (turning the power to the fire off “at the wall” then on
again after a few seconds).
F
Electronics Over
Temp
Excess lint and dust build-up on the front of the controller tray.
Fascia may be installed incorrectly resulting in restricted air flow.
The room air fan may be slowed or stalled. Remove firebox, check that
the fan is plugged in, cleaned, and free turning.
The fire has tried to light three times and failed, causing the fire to “lockout”
for 5 minutes.
•
Check gas supply and check other gas appliances to see if they are affected. If you have two separate propane cylinders, switch over to the full
bottle or contact your gas supplier. You may need to retry igniting the fire
a few times after re-establishing gas supply.
•
Check the flame impingement in relation to the flame rod. Ensure it is
well enveloped in flame as per the diagram in the installation instructions.
Ensure no small ember flakes have dropped onto the ignition electrodes
between the burners.

Error Code
D
This gas fire has been designed to show error codes to help explain and identify any fault situation that
occurs. These codes will appear on the wireless remote control in the form of a large letter “E” with a
number beside it. Codes can normally be reset by turning the fireplace off then on again at the mains
power wall switch.

Appliance Over
Temperature
Sensor Trip
The bimetallic snap disk mounted on the back chassis panel has tripped. The
possible causes for this could include:
•
Fascia may be installed incorrectly resulting in restricted air flow.
•
The room air fan may be slowed or stalled. Remove firebox, check that
the fan is plugged in, cleaned, and free turning.
•
The gas regulator being set too high resulting in excess heat build-up.
•
The inlet flue not being connected and the appliance drawing warm air
from the cavity. Check flues are securely connected at both ends.
B
C
Valve Solenoid
Check Failure
The valve solenoids have failed the pre-ignition test. This is to detect a faulty
valve solenoid. However, it is possible a wire has dislodged.
•
Check that the connections to each solenoid are secure and in place. It
may be that the connections on the ends of the wires need to be tightened a little (e.g. with a pair of pliers) to ensure a robust connection to
the valve terminal.
•
Disconnect and reconnect the firebox connectors ensuring they are
firmly pushed into place.
•
It could also be that one of the solenoids on the valve inside the fire has
failed. If this is the case the valve will need to be replaced.

Cleaning the Fascia
NEVER RUB THE FASCIA. The outside of the fascia’s must only be cleaned with a clean damp cloth,
dry off after cleaning. The high temp silver powder coating that is used on Escea fascia parts contains
certain amounts of aluminium that when rubbed too hard will oxidise leaving a black smudge that
cannot be removed. For stainless steel fascias: we recommend the use of Steel Kleen brand Ezi Wipes.
Always clean when cold.

Cleaning the Log Set and Glass
C
B
This is a service procedure that will need to be carried out whenever soot builds up on logs and/or
inside of glass. If soot build up becomes excessive or regular then one of the following actions may be
required:
•
Check gas pressure; operating gas pressure may be too high.
•
Reposition log set so that each log is sitting correctly in the log retainer bracket.
•
Clear any blockage from primary air port of burner.
•
Check flue tube is not damaged or disconnected.
For diagrams and further info on removing your fascia, reverse the steps found in section F.
•
As part of regular service procedure, it is recommended that the fan is removed for cleaning. Dust will
build up on the fan rotor and in the cavity where the fan is located. This can be removed by the service
person using a hearth brush and a vacuum cleaner.
ISOLATE THE POWER AND GAS SUPPLY TO THE FIRE BEFORE COMMENCING THIS
PROCEEDURE.
Remove the electronic tray located on the base of the chassis (instructions provided in the next section ) before attempting to remove the room air fan. Disconnect the 3-way fan connector and remove
the two screws circled in the diagram below (the AF960 requires the LH access hatch to be removed
in order to get to the LH screw) . The room air fan can now be pull towards you and removed through
the burner tray hole.

Replacing a Wireless Control
A
If the wireless control becomes lost or damaged, a new one can be ordered
from any Escea retail agent. When you have the new remote, the following
procedure needs to be followed to “teach” the remote to only communicate
with that fire.
1. Ensure the fire and remote are set to “Off” (only the time is displayed on
the remote).
B
2. While the remote is in its “OFF” mode with only the time showing on the
display, press the MINUS, PLUS and FAN BOOST buttons simultaneously
(as shown right) until the characters “03” light up on the display. Release the
buttons and the remote will count down and display “GO”. The screen will
then display all characters and should be reading 00. This will put the remote into test mode. Note: if
the digits start counting then the remote is already paired.
C
3. Press and hold the – (minus) button until the two large temperature digits reading 00 start to flash
slowly. Release the – (minus) button. The remote control is now ready to be addressed to the fire.
D
4. Press and hold the black auxiliary on/off button (found on the front face of the fireplaces electronic
drawer, shown on the left with an arrow) for a minimum of ten seconds, or until the two large temperature digits start counting upwards from 00 to 99 repeatedly on the remote control.
Note: Pressing the black auxiliary button on/off button will start the fire. Once the remote control is
counting the fire can be turned off by pressing the black auxiliary button again.
E
5. Press the large power button in the middle of the remote control to exit the test mode and return
to normal operation. The remote should only be displaying the time. Check the fire will start using the
remote control by pressing the large power button. Turn it off again using the remote control.
6. The fire is now re-addressed to the remote control.
