Figure 10: Bi-Fold Doors Fully Open
Before installing heater, make sure you have the items listed below.
• approved flexible gas hose and fittings (supplied with appliance, if
allowed by local codes)
• external regulator (propane/LP models only)
• piping (check local codes)
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• equipment shutoff valve*
• test gauge connection*
• sediment trap
• tee joint
• pipe wrench
* An equipment shutoff valve with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test gauge connection. Purchase the optional equipment
shutoff valve from your dealer.
For propane/LP units, 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, control valve damage could occur. Install external regulator with the vent pointing down as shown in
Figure 11. Pointing the vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.

REMOTE PROPANE/LP GAS SUPPLIES AND ENCLOSURES
If appliance is to be permanently connected to a gas piping system
from a remote supply tank, installation must be in accordance with
local codes or, in absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas
Codes ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.
Enclosures may be used to conceal propane/LP supply tanks and
must be constructed to meet the following minimum construction
requirements:
• An enclosure must have either one open side or at least four
opposing vent openings, top and bottom, which meet minimum
requirements for size and location (see Figure 12).
• Each opening must provide a minimum or 1/2 square inches (3,23
cm2) of open area for each pound propane/LP contained in enclosed
supply tank.
Example: A full enclosure for a 20 pound propane/LP tank must
have at least four, 10 square inches (65 cm2) openings [a 2" x 5"
(5 x 13 cm) square].
• The top openings must be 180° opposing and be placed at valve
level.
• The bottom openings must be 180° opposing and be placed 5"
(12.7 cm) above bottom floor.
• There must be 2" (5 cm) minimum clearance from the floor to
ground level of enclosure.
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 heater.
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 log set (see Figure 13).
IMPORTANT: Install equipment shutoff valve in an accessible location. The equipment shutoff valve is for turning on or shutting off
the gas to the appliance.
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 heater valves.
WARNING: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant
to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.

We recommend that you install a sediment trap in supply line as shown
in Figure 13. Locate sediment trap where it is within reach for cleaning. Install in piping system between fuel supply and appliance. Locate
sediment trap where trapped matter is not likely to freeze. A sediment
trap traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them from going into
heater controls. If sediment trap is not installed or is installed wrong,
heater may not run properly.
CAUTION: Avoid damage to gas control. Hold gas

INSTALLATION Continued
OPERATION
PLACEMENT OF LOOSE EMBERS
FOR YOUR SAFETY
READ BEFORE LIGHTING
CAUTION: Do not place any loose embers around
pilot assembly.
Two bags of loose embers are provided with this unit. For this installation use the embers that are approximately 1" square in size. If
needed, larger embers can be broken to size. These embers aid in
concealing the burner pan, directing flames through the ember bed,
quiet operation of the unit and gives a natural random flame pattern.
Place embers as follows:
1. Place embers around center ember bed or ember pod.
2. Place individual embers on their edge (not flat) along the top of
burner pan. This aids in directing flames from the burner through
ember bed.
NOTE: Too many embers or embers placed flat along burner pan
can suppress the flames.
3. When unit is lit, check flames for random appearance and ember
bed glowing red-orange in color (see Burner and Pilot Flame
Pattern, Page 13). If this is not happening, either add, remove or
reposition loose embers. IMPORTANT: Turn unit off and let cool
before repositioning loose embers.
WARNING: If you do not follow these instructions
exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing property
damage, personal injury or loss of life.
A. This appliance has a pilot which must be lighted with a piezo
igniter. When lightning the pilot, follow these instructions
exactly.
B. BEFORE LIGHTING smell all around the appliance area for gas.
Be sure to smell next to the floor because some gas is heavier
than air and will settle on the floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any phone in your
building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s phone.
Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
C. Use only your hand to push in or turn gas control knob. Never
use tools. If the knob will not push in or turn by hand, do not
try to repair it, call a qualified technician. Force or attempted
repair may result in a fire.
D. Do not use this appliance if any part has been under water.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the
appliance and to replace any part of the control system and any
gas control which has been under water.
