1. Remove the straight fitting supplied with your gas log
kit's gas connector assembly. This fitting incorporates a
orifice which regulates the amount of gas your gas log
consumes. Remove orifice cap and install in long fitting
supplied in kit. Apply pipe thread sealer to inlet side of
burner pan and install orifice fitting.
2. Next install the 3/8 pipe plug included in your gas log kit
into the opposite end of the burner pan using a small
amount of pipe thread sealer.
3. Install brass elbow from pilot kit onto the orifice fitting
using a small amount of pipe thread sealer. Tighten so
elbow male end is pointed up (fig. 1).
4. Apply a small amount of thread sealer to elbow. Next
install the safety valve onto the nipple. Make certain that
the flow arrow indicates proper gas flow direction through
valve (fig 2).
5. Assemble pilot onto the appropriate bracket for left or
right hand installation using two #10/32 screws (fig 2).
Insert insulation material between pilot and bracket before
tightening.
6. Insert 1/4" aluminum pilot supply tube into the receiver
† For the purpose of input adjustment.
A manual shut-off valve must be included within (6')
six feet of the appliance's gas supply system. This shut-off
valve is not supplied with the appliance. It may be
preferable and more convenient to install the type of shutoff valve that can be accessed through a wall with a key
(check local building codes).
1. Remove all ashes or other debris from fireplace. If your
fireplace is equipped with an ash dump, the door must
be sealed with high temperature silicone or furnace
cement.
2. Run a ½" NPT Black Iron gas line through fireplace
and into hearth area, allowing only enough stem to install
appropriate connector. Prepare incoming black iron gas
line with Teflon tape or pipe joint compound (check
with local codes).
Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall
be resistant to the action of Liquefied Petroleum (LP or
Propane), and should be applied lightly to ensure excess
sealant does not enter the gas line.
A provision is made for a for a test gauge connection.
Access for connection is on top of valve with shield
removed.
3. Position burner base in the center of the fireplace hearth.
Apply thread sealant on the incoming gas line and install
the connector. The male end of the fitting on the safety
valve should point towards the rear of the fireplace. If a
flexible, aluminum gas line connector is used (check
local codes), be careful not to kink tubing when hand
forming to fit between burner pan and incoming gas line
(Figure 3). It's important that the gas supply line fitting
nuts are towards the outside ends; once the line is bent,
the fitting nuts will not slide over bends.
4. Place grate in the center of firebox and adjust the
Figure 3
Figure 2
position of the burner pan until the back edge is close to
the center of the grate. Adjust connector as necessary to
keep the burner pan stable in this position, then remove
the grate.
5. After gas line connection is complete, turn on gas
supply and check connections for leaks. This is done by
brushing or spraying each fitting from incoming gas line
to log set with a solution of 50% soap and 50% water. If
bubbles appear, further tightening will be required.
CAUTION! NEVER CHECK FOR LEAKING GAS
CONNECTIONS WITH AN OPEN FLAME.
6. Fill burner pan with material per installation manual
included with gas log kit. Adjust pilot as follows.
USE THIS INSTRUCTION SHEET IN CONJUNCTION WITH INSTALLATION INSTRUCTION PROVIDED WITH GAS LOG KIT.
NOTE: After completing installation check for proper
pilot flame (Figure 4) and
burner operation (see Lighting
Instructions) - If pilot flame is
reduced by operating main
burner, a pressure reading
should be taken at the inlet
Figure 4
side of the safety valve. Verify
minimum required inlet pressure and re-test for gas leaks
before proceeding with installation. Because of the varied
conditions under which the log set operates, it is sometimes
necessary to adjust the burner pilot flame.
To adjust the pilot flame: Remove the heat shield. Locate
the pilot adjusting screw to the left of the control knob.
Using a small screwdriver, turn the pilot adjusting screw
until the flame resembles Figure 4. Now turn the log set on
and readjust the pilot if necessary.
7. Complete log kit installation as outlined in log kit manual.
The gas log must be operated with a fireplace screen
in place. The screen must have sufficient holes to
allow for combustion air.
