Installation (for qualified installers only)
Drafting Performance
This appliance relies upon natural draft to operate. External forces, such as wind, barometric pressure,
topography, or factors of the home (negative pressure from exhaust fans, chimneys, air infiltration, etc.),
may adversely affect draft. Travis Industries cannot be responsible for external forces leading to less
than optimal performance.
Insert Rollers
Two rollers are built into the back edge of the insert. This allows the insert to be rolled into position by
lifting the front of the insert and pushing it into position (see Figure 4).
fire-parts.com
Figure 4
Leveling Bolt Installation
Two leveling bolts are pre-installed on the insert to allow for proper leveling within the fireplace. To
access the bolts, remove the back corner firebricks and cover plates (see Figure 5 “a” and “b”). The bolts
are pre-threaded to a weld-nut on the base of the insert. Use a 3/4” socket wrench to screw the bolts
down (clockwise) until the insert is level (see “c”).
MASONRY NOTE: You may wish to place a metal plate below the bolt if the masonry is weak.
SEALING THE COVER PLATE: We recommend sealing the cover plate with furnace cement (place on
underside of cover plate).
BOLT LENGTH: The included bolts allow approximately 1” (26mm) of rise. If additional rise is required,
use a longer 1/2-13 thread bolt. Make sure the additional bolt length does not interfere with the cover
plate.

Installation (for qualified installers only)
Block-Off Plate Installation
Whenever this appliance is installed with a direct connection a block-off plate, or other non-combustible
seal-off device (e.g. damper adapter), will need to be installed. This device is used to seal the chimney,
insuring no smoke enters the home and providing the chimney system with a seal to promote draft. The
directions below detail the steps for construction and installation of a block-off plate.
1 Determine a location for the block-off plate at the top of the firebox below the damper area (make
it high enough to allow installation of the connection pipe). The location should be level and in an
area where it can be mounted easily. Measure the width at the rear ("A") and front ("B") of the
firebox at the height where the block-off plate will be installed (see Figure 6). Then measure the
depth of the location where the block-off plate will be installed ("C").
2 Make a cardboard template of the measurements, but add a 2" (51mm) flange to each side. This
flange will be used to mount the block-off plate to the inside of the firebox. Bend the flanges
downwards on the template and place it inside the fireplace. If the template fits correctly in its
planned location, go to the next step. If it does not, make a new template with the appropriate
corrections until it fits correctly.
3 With the template in place, mark the location of the flue (see “Dimensions” on page 6). This
location approximates the center of the flue when the insert is in place (a slight offset may occur
based upon insert and block-off plate placement). Remove the template and cut a 6 1/4"
(159mm) diameter hole centered on this mark.
4 Make the block-off plate of 24 gauge or thicker steel to match the template. Drill two holes in
each flange for mounting the plate.
5 Mount the block-off plate using masonry screws.
6 Insulate the block-off plate using high-temperature fiberglass insulation (Kaowool® or equivalent)
and furnace cement (allow the cement to dry for at least 24 hours before burning).
7 After placing the appliance and installing the pipe through the block-off plate, use hightemperature fiberglass insulation and furnace cement to seal any cracks between the pipe and
block-off plate.

Safety Notice:
If this appliance is not properly installed, a house fire may result. For your safety, follow the installation
directions. Contact local building or fire officials about restrictions and installation inspection
requirements in your area.
Read and follow all of the warnings on pages 4 and 5 of this manual.
Before Your First Fire
Verify the Installation
Before starting the stove, verify that it is properly installed and all of the requirements in this manual have
been followed.
Keep all flammable materials 36" (915mm) away from the front of the stove (drapes, furniture, clothing,
etc.).
Curing the Paint
2 to 4 hours
This heater uses a heat-activated paint that will emit some fumes while
starting the first fire. Open doors and windows to the room to vent these
fumes. This typically lasts two to four hours. You may also notice oil burning
off of the interior of the heater. This rust-stopping agent will soon dissipate.
Door Gasket - The door gasket might adhere to the paint on the front of the
heater. Leave the door slightly ajar for the first fire and be careful when
opening the door after the first fire.
fire-parts.com
Over-Firing the Stove
This stove was designed to operate at a high temperature. But due to differences in vent configuration,
fuel, and draft, this appliance can be operated at an excessive temperature. If the stove top or other area
starts to glow red, you are over-firing the stove. Shut the air control down to low and allow the stove to
cool before proceeding.
Over-firing may lead to damage of plated surfaces. If you are uncertain of over-firing conditions, we
suggest placing a stove thermometer (e.g. Rutland® Model 710) directly over the door on the stove top temperatures exceeding 800° (426 C) are generally considered over-firing and will void the warranty.
Opening the Door
Rotate
the door
handle.
Swing
the door
open.
The door becomes hot during use. Use a glove to open the door if the handle is hot.
To prevent smoke from entering the room, open the bypass before opening the door (see following page
for directions). You can also open the door a small amount and let air enter the firebox.

Operating Your Appliance
Bypass Operation
The bypass controls the flow of smoke inside the heater. When pulled out, smoke goes directly up the
flue, creating more draft. When pushed in, the smoke goes around the baffle, utilizing the secondary
combustion and making the heater more efficient.

When starting or re-loading, pull the bypass out.

During normal operation, push the bypass in.

Starting a Fire
Since the dawn of time man has debated the best way to start a fire. Some use the boy-scout "tee-pee",
some prefer the "tic-tac-toe" stack. Either way, review the hints and warnings below to ensure proper fire
starting.

Make sure the air control is pushed in and the by-pass pulled out. If additional air is needed, open
the doors 1/4" (7mm) during the first five minutes of start-up.
fire-parts.com
Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to start
or "freshen up" a fire in this stove. Keep all such liquids well away from the stove while it is in use.
If using a firestarter, use only products specifically designed for stoves - follow the manufacturer's
instructions carefully.
If the smoke does not pass up the chimney, ball up one sheet of newspaper, place it in the center of the
firebox and light it. This should start the chimney drafting (this eliminates "cold air blockage").
Use plenty of kindling to ensure the stove reaches a proper temperature. Once the kindling is burning
rapidly, place a few larger pieces of wood onto the fire.

Ashes should be placed in a metal container with a tight fitting lid. The closed container of ashes
should be placed on a noncombustible floor or on the ground, away from all combustible
materials, pending final disposal. If the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally
dispersed, they should be retained in the closed container until all cinders have thoroughly
cooled.

Re-Loading the Stove
fire-parts.com
Follow the directions below to minimize smoke spillage while re-loading the stove.
1
Open the air control all the way (push it in). Open the bypass (pull it out).
2
Open the door slightly. Let the airflow inside the firebox to stabilize before opening the doors fully.
3
Load wood onto the fire.
Overnight Burn
This stove is large enough to accommodate burn times up to eight hours. Follow the steps below to
achieve an overnight burn.
1
Move the air control to high burn and let the stove become hot (burn for approximately 15 minutes).
2
Load as much wood as possible. Use large pieces if possible.
3
Let the stove burn on high for 15 minutes to keep the stove hot, then turn the air control to low.
4
In the morning the stove should still be hot, with embers in the coal bed. Stir the coals and load
small pieces of wood to re-ignite the fire, if desired.
Differences if chimney height and draft may lower overall burn times.
Normal Operating Sounds
Creaks and Clicks:
The 3/16" and 5/16" steel may creak or click when
the stove heats up and cools down - this is normal.
Blower Sounds:
The blower will make a slight "humm" as it
pushes air through the stove.

Operating Your Appliance
Hints for Burning

Get the appliance hot before adjusting to low burn

Use smaller pieces of wood during start-up and high burns to increase temperature

Use larger pieces of wood for overnight or sustained burns

Stack the wood tightly together to establish a longer burn

Leave a bed of ashes (1/2" – 13mm -- deep) to allow for longer burns

Be considerate of neighbors & the environment: burn dry wood only

Burn small, intense fires instead of large, slow burning fires when possible

Learn your appliance's operating characteristics to obtain optimum performance
Selecting Wood
Burn only untreated wood. Burning other materials such as wood preservatives, metal foils,
coal, plastic, sulfur, or oil may damage the stove.

Dry Wood is Key

Dry wood burns hot, emits less
smoke and creates less creosote.


Split wood stored in a dry area will
be fully dry within a year. This
insures dry wood. If purchasing
wood for immediate use, test the
wood with the included moisture
meter. Some experienced wood
burners can measure wood
moisture by knocking pieces
together and listening for a clear
"knock" and not a "thud".

Why Dry Wood is Key
Wet wood, when burned, must release water stored within the wood. This cools the fire, creates
creosote, and hampers a complete burn. Ask any experienced wood burner and he or she will agree: dry
wood is crucial to good performance.
Wood Cutting and Storage
Cut wood to length and
chop into quarters.
Store the wood off the ground in a
covered area. Allow for airflow
around the wood to dry the wood.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause
Smoke Enters Room During
Start-Up

Open the bypass (pg. 16).

Open the air control (pg. 18).

Cold Air Blockage - burn a piece of newspaper to
establish a draft.

If the flame is not getting enough air, a small crack in
the door is all that is needed.

Open the bypass (pg. 16).

Open the air control (pg. 18).

Not enough starter paper - use additional newspaper if
necessary.

If the flame is not getting enough air, a small crack in
the door is all that is needed.

Open the bypass before opening the door (pg. 16).

Open the air control before opening the door (pg. 18).

Let the air stabilize before fully opening the door.
Then open the door approximately 1 inch. Let air go
into the firebox for a few seconds. Once the smoke
appears to be flowing up the chimney consistently,
open the door.

Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases a
small amount of smoke may enter the home. Adding
more pipe or a draft-inducing cap may help.

Wood is Wet - see the section "Selecting Wood" on
page 20 for details on wood.

Make sure the air control is all the way open. Slide the
control back and forth to insure the control is not stuck.

Insufficient Draft - Chimney height and outside
conditions can negatively affect draft. In these cases
the fire may burn slowly. Adding more pipe or a draftinducing cap may help.

Stove is Not Up to Temperature - This is normal. The
blower will come on when the stove is hot - usually 15
to 30 minutes.

Electricity is Cut to the Blower - Check the household
breaker or fuse to make sure it is operable.

Depending upon wood, draft, and other factors, the
burn time may be shorter then stated. Make sure the
doors are sealing and not allowing air into the firebox See the section "Door and Glass Inspection" on page
23 for details.

Check the ash bed for coals. Often, coals are still
glowing under a slight bed of flyash. By raking these
into a pile you can re-start your stove quickly.

Maintaining Your Appliance
Failure to properly maintain and inspect your appliance may reduce the performance and life of the
appliance, void your warranty, and create a fire hazard.
Daily Maintenance (while stove is in use)
Remove Ash (if necessary)

Ash removal is not required once it builds up. 1/2" (13mm) to 1" of ash may be desirable because it
slows the burn rate. Generally, remove ash once it has built up over 1" (26mm). Follow the
directions below to remove ash.
1
2
3
Let the stove cool completely (at least two hours after the last coal has extinguished).
Place a cloth or cardboard protector over the hearth to catch ash and protect against
scratching.
Open the doors and scoop the ash into a metal container with a tight fitting lid. The
closed container of ashes should be placed on a noncombustible floor or on the
ground, away from all combustible materials, pending final disposal.
ASHES
Improperly disposed ashes lead to fires. Hot ashes placed in cardboard boxes, dumped in back yards,
or stored in garages, are recipes for disaster.
Wood-burning stoves are inherently dirty. During cleaning have a vacuum ready to catch spilled ash
(make sure ash is entirely extinguished).
fire-parts.com
There are vacuum cleaners specifically made to remove ash (even if the ash is warm). Contact your
dealer for details.
Clean the Glass (if necessary)
This appliance has an airwash to keep the glass clean. However, burning un-seasoned wood or burning
on lower burn rates leads to dirtier glass (especially on the sides). Clean the glass by following the
directions below.
Allow the stove to fully cool. Apply glass
cleaner or soapy water to the inside of
the glass. Wipe with newspaper or a
paper towel.
For Stubborn Creosote:
Dip newspaper or a paper towel
in cool ashes and wipe it on the
glass. The ash acts as a light
abrasive.
The glass will develop a very slight haze over time. This is normal and will not affect viewing of the fire.

Creosote - Formation and Need for Removal
When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors, which combine with expelled
moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slowburning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote
makes an extremely hot fire. The chimney and chimney connector should be inspected at least once
every two months during the heating season to determine if a creosote buildup has occurred. If creosote
has accumulated, it should be removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire.
If you are not certain of creosote inspection, contact your dealer or local chimney sweep for a full
inspection. Excess creosote buildup may cause a chimney fire, that may result in property damage,
injury, or death.

Maintaining Your Appliance
Yearly Maintenance
Make sure the appliance has fully cooled prior to conducting service.
Touch Up Paint
Included with the owner's pack of this appliance is a can of Stove-Brite®
paint. To touch up nicks or dulled paint, apply the paint while the appliance is
cool. Sand rusted or damaged areas before preparation (use 120 grit
sandpaper). Clean and dry the area to prepare the surface. Wait at least one
hour before starting the appliance. The touched up area will appear darker
than the surrounding paint until it cures from heat. Curing will give off some
fumes while curing – open windows to ventilate.
Touch-Up
Paint
Cleaning the Air Duct and Blower (if applicable)
Use a vacuum to clean the air ducts (channels). This prevents dust from burning and creating odors.
The optional blower should be vacuumed every year to remove any buildup of dust, lint, etc.
Use a vacuum cleaner to
remove any buildup on the
screens of the blower.
fire-parts.com
Firebrick and Baffle Inspection
Use the illustration on page 26 as a reference for checking the following items. Make sure the appliance
is cool before proceeding.
Baffle Firebricks - check the bricks along the ceiling of the firebox to make sure they are intact and have
no gaps between them. Slide the bricks to eliminate any gaps.
Baffle Supports - make sure the front and back baffle supports in are place and not degraded. Slight
scaling or rusting of the metal is normal.
Secondary Air Tubes - Check the two air tubes and collars to make sure they are intact and not severely
deteriorated. Slight scaling or rusting of the metal is normal. Make sure the push pins hold the air tubes
in place.
Floor and Wall Firebricks - replace any severely damaged firebrick along the side or floor of the firebox.

Replacing the Glass
The glass must not contact the door retainer or glass clips directly. The glass gasket and glass clip
gaskets insulate the glass to prevent cracking. Do not over-tighten the glass clips.
See "Door Shell Installation" (pg. 30) for details on removing the door handle and shell. NOTE: The glass
gasket is placed in the grove along the inside perimeter of the door retainer. Make sure the glass clip
screws are all fully tightened - they must be flush with the door retainer for the door shell to install.
Replacing the Door Gasket
The door gasket inserts into the outer groove of the door retainer. Stove gasket cement holds it in place.
Before installing, remove any residual cement. Lay the gasket in place (start at the lower left corner) and
cut off any excess gasket (do not stretch the gasket. The cement fully cures with heat from the stove.
You may need to open and close the door repeatedly to get the gasket to seat fully.
Replacing the Door Handle
See the illustration above for a component list (see pg. 25 for details on adjusting the door).

Flush Kit
This kit allows the Freedom insert to be installed with more of the unit inside the fireplace (flush) rather
than extended onto the hearth. The flush kit must be installed prior to installing the surround panels or
placing the insert. Place the insert 24" (610mm) onto the hearth before following the instructions below.

Front Blower (part # 99000126)
To Switch The Power Cord To The Left Side:
Use a pair of pliers to disconnect the strain relief which holds the power cord in place. With the power
cord slackened, the molex connectors that attach the power cord to the blower assembly may be
disconnected. Pry the button plug from the left side of the blower assembly and insert it into the hole on
the right side. Pull the left side molex connector out from behind the deflection plate and cut the nylon tie
that holds the wire back. Insert the molex connector on the power cord through the hole on the left side
of the blower assembly and attach it to the left side molex connector. Route the wire directly behind the
blower cage. Place the strain relief over the power cord (it should be in the same location on the power
cord that it was before – approximately 2" (51mm) from where the wires split). Insert the strain relief into
the hole on the left side until the strain relief locks in place. Make sure the power cord, wires, or molex
assembly do not protrude into the opening of the blower.
The wires tuck in here, directly
behind the blower cage.
