When using electrical heaters, basic precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock and
injury to persons, including the following:
•
•
Read all instructions before using this heater.
This heater is hot when in use. To avoid burns do not let

36 in. (914 mm) from the front.
Extreme caution is necessary when any heater is used
by or near children or invalids and whenever the heater
is left operating and unattended.
Always unplug heater when not in use.
Do not operate any heater with a damaged cord or plug

WARNING! Electrical wiring must comply with local
building codes and other applicable regulations to
reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock and injury.
A 15 AMP, 120 Volt, 60 Hz circuit with a properly grounded outlet is required. Preferably the fireplace will be on a
dedicated circuit. Other appliances on the same circuit may cause the circuit breaker to trip or the fuse to blow when the
heater is in operation. The unit comes with a 6 ft. (152.4 mm) long three wire 16 AWG IEC-320 power cord. Plug in the
IEC connector to the rear upper corner of the appliance then connect the cord to the wall socket.
The fireplace power cord has a three pin NEMA-5-15P plug (Figure 1A). An adapter is available for connecting to a twoslot receptacle (Figure 1C). The green grounding wire extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. The adapter should not be used if a three slot grounded receptacle is
available.
F. Wall Switch and Thermostat Connections
WARNING! Do NOT connect the optional low voltage switch and/or thermostat to 120 volt branch circuit.
The Optional Wall Switch 4050-309 contains two single pole switches. (LEVITON 5634 Series or equal)
The Optional Wall Thermostat is a low voltage mechanical type. (Columbus Electric RK120EAA or equal)
Maximum run distance is 30 ft. (9.14 m) with 20 gauge solid copper low voltage thermostat wire. Connect per the electrical wiring diagram on page 7.
