D. Location
WARNING! Risk of Fire! Keep electrical cords, drapery,
furnishings or other combustibles at least 3 ft. (0.9 m)
from the front of the electric fireplace.
When choosing a location for your fireplace ensure that
the general rules are followed:
•
For best results, install out of direct sunlight.
•
Power supply service must be installed within
proximity of electric fireplace prior to finishing to
avoid reconstruction.
•
See Figure 3.C for appliance dimensions and to
determine location of appliance installation.
F. Electrical Supply Circuit Requirements
Plan the location of the appliance so that it will have
adequate electric power. A 15 AMP, 120V or a 30 AMP,
240V/60hz. circuit is required. Additional appliances
on the same circuit as this appliance may exceed the
current rating of that circuit. A dedicated circuit is not
required, but is preferred to prevent circuit breaker trips
or fuse failure.
E. Clearance to Combustibles
The SimpliFire Built-in Series is a zero clearance design,
with the exception of the top of the unit when hardwired for 240V. Any insulation and vapor barrier should
be placed a minimum of 2" from the top of the firebox.
Bend the supplied stand-offs to a vertical position to
maintain this clearance.
Reference Section 4.F for more complete detail on completing electrical installation.
G. Positioning of Top Stand-offs
When this unit is to be hard-wired for 240V, a clearance
of 2 inches is required on the top of the unit. Bend the
supplied stand-offs on the top of the unit to a vertical
position to maintain this clearance.

4 INSTALLATION
A. Selecting Appliance Location
This product can be built into new construction or an existing factory-built fireplace. Reference Sections 4.A - 4.D for
specific information for your installation.
When selecting a location for the appliance it is important to
consider the required clearances to walls (see Figure 4.1).
WARNING! Risk of Fire or Burns! Provide adequate
clearance around air openings and for service access.
Due to high temperatures, the appliance should be located out of traffic and away from furniture and draperies.
NOTICE: Illustrations reflect typical installations and are

C. Installation into Existing Fireplace
1. Seal all drafts with non-fiberous insulation materials to
prevent debris or water from falling from the chimney
to electric fireplace.
2. Close or seal off the chimney flue and close damper
(if applicable) to prevent rain infiltration.
3. Do not install in an existing fireplace that is prone to
dampness.
4. A provision must be made for the appliance to be
connected to power within existing firebox, or on an
adjacent wall.
D. Installation into New Construction
Position the fireplace within the opening in the framing.
Level the fireplace with shims if necessary. Attach the
fireplace to the framing with the two provided brackets
and screws or nails.
E. Constructing the Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose the
electrical appliance. Chases should be constructed in the
manner of all outside walls of the home to prevent cold
air drafting problems. The chase should not break the
outside building envelope in any manner.
Walls, ceiling, base plate and cantilever floor of the chase
should be insulated. Vapor and air infiltration barriers
should be installed in the chase as per regional codes for
the rest of the home. Additionally, in regions where cold
air infiltration may be an issue, the inside surfaces may be
sheetrocked and taped for maximum air tightness.
F. Electrical Connection
Note: All wiring must be completed prior to finishing the unit.
WARNING! Risk of Fire, Electrical Shock, and Injury!
Electrical wiring must comply with local building codes
and other applicable regulations.
WARNING! Risk of Shock! Label all wires prior to
disconnection when servicing product. Wiring errors can
cause improper and dangerous operation. Verify proper
operation after servicing.
10
This appliance has been designed to be hard-wired for
120V. A supplied plug-in kit is also available for 120V
ONLY.
A 15 AMP, 120 - or 30 AMP, 240 Volt, 60 Hz. circuit with
a properly grounded outlet is required. Use minimum
size 14 AWG for supply connection to 120 -240 volt, 60
Hz, 15 AMP branch circuit. Use copper wire only. The
supply wiring should be properly grounded. A dedicated
circuit is recommended as other appliances on the circuit may cause the breaker to trip or fuse to blow when
the appliance is operating.
VOLTAGE SELECTOR SWITCH
This appliance ships standard for a hardwire application.
To access terminal block for electrical connection, remove the screws securing the junction box cover plate
located on the upper right side of the appliance. A Romex
strain relief connector (not provided) is required for proper
installation. Slip supply wires through the Romex connector and through hole in the junction box cover plate.
Connect supply wires to appliance using terminal block
provided. For 120V applications, connect the hot supply
wire to the L1 line listed on the terminal block, connect the
common supply wire to the N terminal and ground supply
wire to the G terminal. For 120V applications the L2 terminal will not have any supply connections.
For 240V applications, connect one hot supply wire to the
L1 position and one to the L2 position listed on the terminal block, connect the common supply wire to the N terminal and ground supply wire to the G terminal. Ensure
all connections are tight and there are no exposed wires.
Tighten Romex strain relief and reattach junction box cover plate. Inspect that the correct voltage is selected on
the selector switch located behind the glass on the ceiling
of the unit. Failure to do so could damage the product.
To attach supplied plug-in kit for 120V applications, follow the steps below:
1. Remove the screws securing the junction box cover
plate on the upper right side of appliance.
2. Gently pull cover plate away from unit and unplug
white connector.
3. Attach the white connector on the supplied plug-in
kit.
4. Inspect all wire connections for any exposed wires.
5. Secure junction box cover plate.
6. Confirm the selector switch located behind the glass
on the ceiling of the unit is set to 120V.
