IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Important: To comply with certification, listings, and building code acceptances, and for safe operation
and proper performance of this log set, use ONLY Peterson Real-Fyre® parts and accessories.
Use of other controls, parts, and accessories that are not designed for use with Real-Fyre®
gas log sets is prohibited and will void all warranties, certifications, listings, and building
code approvals, and may cause property damage, personal injury, or loss of life.
Check to be sure the fireplace meets venting and construction requirements for the installation of the
Real-Fyre® gas log set (see FIREPLACE REQUIREMENTS section, below).
Be sure your gas log set is properly sized for your fireplace. Improper sizing may negatively impact the
proper drafting of the fireplace. Additionally, too large a log set will adversely affect the burn and hamper the
proper operation of the control system. Too small a log set will diminish the beauty of your hearth setting.
Fig. 4-1 below shows the critical dimensions of your firebox. The table below shows log set dimensions.
FIREPLACE REQUIREMENTS
This Real-Fyre® gas log set is to be installed only in
a fully vented, noncombustible fireplace with an open
damper. The chimney must be free of any obstructions.
The fireplace must be designed and approved to burn
wood. Your Real-Fyre® log set is designed to burn
with yellow, smoky flames. For this reason, it must be
adequately vented.
The fireplace must have a gas-supply line that has been
installed by a qualified technician in accordance with all
local codes. The gas-supply line must be ½" minimum
interior diameter. If the gas line to the fireplace is longer
than 20', a larger-diameter line may be necessary.
A fireplace screen must be in place when the system
is burning. Provisions for adequate combustion
air must be maintained. Unless other provisions for
combustion air are provided, the screen shall have
an opening(s) for introduction of combustion air.
Combustion air is adequate when all flames curl into
the fireplace and away from the screen. When a glass
fireplace enclosure (door) is used, leave the doors
fully open when the system is in operation.
Required Gas Pressure: The minimum inlet gassupply pressure for the purpose of input adjustment is
7" of water column (w.c.) for natural gas and 11" w.c.
for propane. The maximum inlet gas-supply pressure
is 10.5" w.c. for natural gas and 13" for propane.

INSTALLATION
The damper clamp with hex bolt (Fig. 5-1) is provided as a means to prevent
full closure of the damper blade. The clamp is easily attached to most damper
blades with pliers or a wrench, and must be permanently installed. The clamp
is designed to prevent accidental closure of the damper when installed as
illustrated (Fig. 5-2 and Fig. 5-3). Should the clamp not fit, or fail to provide the
permanent vent opening listed in the table found above, have a permanent
stop installed, remove the damper blade, or have
the damper cut to provide the minimum permanent Set screw
opening required.
Note: These are minimum damper opening
specifications. The damper must be completely
opened when operating this gas appliance to
achieve the best ventilation possible.

INSTALLING THE BURNER
The Real-Fyre gas log set must be installed by a qualified professional service technician. Instructions must
be followed carefully to ensure proper performance and full benefit from the gas log set. Check to be sure the
log set is designed and labeled for the type of gas (natural or propane gas) supplied to the fireplace.
Fireplace floor must be level, clean, and smooth.
WARNING: Failure to position the parts in accordance with these diagrams or failure to use only parts
specifically approved with this appliance may result in property damage or personal injury.
REFER TO THE PARTS LIST WHEN FOLLOWING THESE INSTRUCTIONS. If your burner is to be installed
with a pilot kit; carefully follow the instructions supplied with your pilot kit for specific gas connection.
The burner pan is supplied with an air mixer for propane gas or a fuel injector for natural gas. The air mixer / fuel
injector must be used in ALL installations. The air mixer / fuel injector has a precisely sized orifice to ensure
only the proper quantity of gas enters the burner. This allows maximum performance and gas conservation.
1. MAKE SURE THE FIREPLACE GAS SUPPLY IS TURNED OFF.
2. Locate the gas-supply stub inside the fireplace and remove the cap, if attached (see Fig. 5-4).
CAUTION: When removing the cap, make sure the stub does not turn, loosening the connection inside the wall.
3. Attach the small adapter (Item 8C) to the fuel injector / air mixer on the burner pan, using a pipe compound
resistant to all gases. Tighten securely. DO NOT REMOVE THE FUEL INJECTOR / AIR MIXER. Then
attach one end of the flex connector (Item 8B) to the small adapter. Tighten securely.
4. Place the burner system into the fireplace so the open burner pan faces outward.
5. Locate the grate (Item 1) and attach the stabilizer clips (Item 4) to the 2 outer bars of the grate with screws
and nuts. The stabilizer clips should be positioned towards the middle of the bars (Fig. 5-5). Place a clip
on each side of the bar, insert the screw, attach the nut, and loosely tighten. Repeat for the other side.
6. Place the grate over the burner pan so the stabilizer clips fit over the back edge of the burner pan to lock
it in position. Completely tighten the clips in place.

LEAKS.
Turn off the gas supply prior to proceeding.
GRANULE, EMBER, AND GRATE PLACEMENT
GRANULE PLACEMENT
The granules supplied with the unit are specially selected for
use with either propane gas or natural gas. They maximize flame
distribution and reduce carbon buildup.
1. Fill the burner pan completely with the granules* (Item 13).
See Fig. 6-2. Avoid spilling the granules on the pilot kit (if
equipped).
*Note: Use only select sand for natural gas burners and
vermiculite for propane gas burners.
2. Slope the granules at the same angle as the burner pan. This is
important to ensure quiet lighting and even flame distribution.

to maintain a space between the front and rear
logs (Fig. 7-1). This creates energy efficiency, heat radiation, and reduces carbon buildup.
3. Top logs should be stacked diagonally, with the largest at the bottom (Fig. 7-3, #3 & 4), and with
spaces between the logs so that the flames are not choked off. Place the smaller logs diagonally across
the larger ones (see Fig. 7-4, #5 & #6). The top logs may be moved to achieve desired flame pattern.
Some carbon buildup (sooting) may occur where the flames impinge on the logs and should not be a
concern unless excessive. If sooting is excessive, rearrange the top logs to reduce flame impingement.
Examples of log stacks are shown below.
Note: Although log styles may differ in pattern or shape ( Fig. 7-6), layout is essentially the same. Adequate
spacing between the logs is NECESSARY and MUST be maintained for best performance.

MAINTENANCE & SERVICE
Maintenance
Once installed and operating properly, your Real-Fyre® gas log set will require regular maintenance.
You should inspect your log set and controls (where installed) for the following:
1. Excessive sooting - Some sooting of your log set is normal, adding to the appearance of burned
wood. If excessive sooting accumulates, clean the logs using any of the following options:
Option 1. Spray the logs with clean water when they are being burned and hot.
The soot will lift off and burn off.
Option 2. Brush the soot off with a stiff brush when the logs are cold.
Do not use water or soot cleaners at the same time as brushing the soot off.
2. Moisture may cause the granules and Glowing Embers in your burner pan to settle. To improve the burn,
follow these tips.
a. Settling of sand (or vermiculite) - Using a screwdriver or flat-blade knife, carefully stir the granules,
loosening the material. Clear up any spills.
b. Embers - Break up any clumps that may have formed, then redistribute the embers on the granules.
3. Debris around the control (where used) - Inspect control and pilot to be sure it is free of dirt or debris.
Service
While some minor service conditions may be handled by the owner of the log set, it is recommended that a
qualified professional service technician be called to maintain and service the gas log set and any installed
control system. The TROUBLESHOOTING section of these instructions serves as a guide for ensuring optimum
performance of your gas log set.
