Step 1. FRAMING
Frame these appliances as illustrated in Figures
13 and 14 on Pages 13 and 14. All framing
details must allow for a minimum clearance
to combustible framing members as shown
in Table 5 on Page 8.
If the appliance is to be elevated above floor level,
a solid continuous platform must be constructed
below the appliance.
Headers may be in direct contact with the appliance top spacers when they are bent up vertically
maintaining the 3" (77 mm) clearance to the
fireplace top, but must not be supported by them
or notched to fit around them. All construction
above the appliance must be self-supporting.
DO NOT use the appliance for structural support.
The fireplace should be secured to the side
framing members using the unit's nailing
flanges - one top and bottom on each side of
the fireplace front. See Figures 12A & 12B.
Use 8d nails or their equivalent.
Nailing Flanges
Turn tabs down and secure to the floor with
8d nails or other appropriate fasteners
on all sides of the unit which do not have
viewing glass panels.
Note: The nailing flanges, combustible members and screw heads located in areas directly adjacent to the nailing
flanges, are EXEMPT from the 1/2” clearance to combustible requirements for the firebox outer wrapper.
Combustible framing may be in direct contact with the nailing flanges and may be located closer than 1/2” from
screw heads and the firebox wrapper in areas adjacent to the nailing flanges. Frame the opening to the exact
dimensions specified in the framing details of this manual.

Figure 15 - Route Gas Line
Proper Sizing of Gas Line
Properly size and route the gas supply line
from the supply regulator to the area where the
appliance is to be installed per requirements
outlined in the National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA
54 - latest edition (USA) or CAN/CGA-B149.1
- latest edition (Canada).
Never use galvanized or plastic pipe. Refer to
Table 6 for proper sizing of the gas supply line,
if black iron pipe is being used. Gas lines must
be routed, constructed and made of materials
that are in strict accordance with local codes
and regulations. We recommend that a qualified
individual such as a plumber or gas fitter be
hired to correctly size and route the gas supply
line to the appliance.
Notes:
• All appliances are factory-equipped with a
flexible gas line connector and 1/2" shutoff
valve (see Figure 50 on Page 30).
•See Massachusetts Requirements on Page
4 for additional requirements for installations
in the state of Massachusetts in the USA.
• The gas supply line should Not be connected
to the appliance until Step 6 (Page 29).
• A pipe joint compound rated for gas should be
used on the threaded joints. Ensure propane
resistant compounds are used in propane
applications. Be very careful that the pipe
compound does not get inside the pipe.
• It is recommended to install a sediment
trap in the supply line as close as possible
to the appliance. Appliances using Propane
should have a sediment trap at the base of
the tank.
• Check with local building official for local
code requirements (i.e. are below grade
penetrations of the gas line allowed?, etc).
IMPORTANT: If propane is used, be aware that
if tank size is too small (i.e. under 100-lbs, if
this is the only gas appliance in the dwelling.
Ref. NPFA 58), there may be loss of pressure,
resulting in insufficient fuel delivery (which
can result in sooting, severe delayed ignition
or other malfunctions). Any damage resulting
from an improper installation, such as this, is
not covered under the limited warranty.
Step 3. PREPARING THE APPLIANCE
VENT COLLAR
WARNING
Failure to reinstall and securely
tighten vent seal cap screws
could result in leakage of flue
products into the living space.
Vent seal cap must remain
securely installed on unused
vent collar. Failure to do so
could result in leakage of flue
products into living space.
REMOVE VENT SEAL CAP
(From the vent that will be used only)
Top Vent Installations - See Figure 16
Side Vent Installations - See Figure 17
Preparing the Appliance Vent Collar
Each of the appliances' two vent collars are
sealed with a seal cap which must be removed
from the vent collar being used. In top vent
installation the cover plate shall be removed
from the inside. Refer to Figure 16 for top
vent installations and Figure 17 for side vent
installations and the following steps to prepare
the appropriate collar for use.
From the vent collar being used, remove the
two screws securing the vent seal cap. Twist
the cap counterclockwise. Pull it away from
the appliance and discard, along with the piece
of insulation.

These fireplaces must be vented directly to the outside.
The vent system may not service multiple appliances, and must never
be connected to a flue serving a solid fuel burning appliance. The vent
pipe is tested to be run inside an enclosed wall (such as a chase). There
is no requirement for inspection openings in the enclosing wall at any of
the joints in the vent pipe.

VENT RESTRICTOR INSTALLATION
A vent restrictor may be needed when vertically terminating the vent
system above the roof (when using the appliance top vent), install a vent
restrictor in the top vent of the fireplace outlet.
If needed, install the restrictor as shown, either from inside or outside the
unit, in the inner fireplace collar.
Inner
Fireplace
Collar
A vent restrictor may be needed with this appliance. The restrictor is
installed in the appliance top flue outlet as shown in Figure 16, either
before adding vent, from above, or after installation of vent from below,
within the firebox. The restrictor is self securing through a positive
friction fit.
Determine the venting for the appliance. If the vent run will include at
least 8 feet of vertical rise, then install the restrictor in the appliance
collar before connecting any vent (Refer to Figure 19). Place the
restrictor inside the appliance vent collar and press in place.

VERTICAL TERMINATION SYSTEMS (ROOF)
See Figure 19 and Figures 29 through 34 on
Pages 20, 21 and 22 and their associated
Vertical Vent Tables which illustrate the various
vertical venting configurations that are possible
for use with these appliances. Secure Vent® pipe
applications are shown in these Figures; Secure
Flex® pipe may also be used. A Vertical Vent
Table summarizes each system’s minimum and
maximum vertical and horizontal length values
that can be used to design and install the vent
components in a variety of applications.
Both these vertical vent systems terminate
through the roof. The minimum vent height
above the roof and/or adjacent walls is specified in ANSI Z223.1-(latest edition) (In Canada,
the current CAN/CGA-B149.1 installation code)
by major building codes. Always consult your
local codes for specific requirements. A general
guide to follow is the Gas Vent Rule (refer to
Figure 5 on Page 8).
Vertical (Straight) Installation
(Figure 19)
Determine the number of straight vent sections required. 4-1/2" (114 mm), 10-1/2" (267
mm), 22-1/2" (572 mm), 34-1/2" (876 mm)
and 46-1/2" (1181 mm) net section lengths
are available (see Tables on this page and
Page 39 - Rigid Vent Sections). Plan the vent
lengths so that a joint does not occur at the
intersection of ceiling or roof joists. Refer to

Vertical (Offset) Installation
Analyze the vent routing and determine the
quantities of vent sections and number of elbows required. Refer to Vertical Vent Figures
and Tables on Page 15 to select the type of
vertical installation desired. Vent sections are
available in net lengths of 4-1/2" (114 mm),
10-1/2" (267 mm), 22-1/2" (572 mm), 34-1/2"
(876 mm) and 46-1/2" (1181 mm). Refer to the
Effective Vent Length Chart on Page 17 for an
aid in selecting length combinations. Elbows are
available in 90° and 45° configurations. Refer
to Figure 24 for the SV4.5E45 and SV4.5E90
elbow dimensional specifications.
Where required, a telescopic vent section
(SV4.5LA) may be used to provide the installer
with an option in installing in tight and confined
spaces or where the vent run made up of fixed
length pieces develops a joint in a undesirable
location, or will not build up to the required
length. The SV4.5LA Telescopic Vent Section
has an effective length of from 1-1/2" (38 mm)
to 7-1/2" (191 mm). The SV4.5LA is fitted with
a locking inclined channel end (identical to a
normal vent section component) and a plain end
with 3 pilot holes. Slip the plain end over the
locking channel end of a standard SV4.5 vent
component the required distance and secure
with three screws.
B. Attach vent components to appliance Secure Vent® SV4.5 direct vent system components are unitized concentric pipe components
featuring positive twist lock connections (see
Figures 21 and 22).
All of the appliances covered in this document
are fitted with collars having locking inclined
channels. The dimpled end of the vent components fit over the appliance collar to create
the positive twist lock connection.
First Vent

To attach a vent component to the appliance
collar, align the dimpled end over the collar,
adjusting the radial alignment until the four
locking dimples are aligned with the inlet of
the four inclined channels on the collar (refer to
Figure 21). Push the vent component against
the collar until it fully engages, then twist the
component clockwise, running the dimples
down and along the incline channels until they
seat at the end of the channels. The unitized
design of the Secure Vent components will
engage and seal both the inner and outer pipe
without the need for sealant or screws. If desired
a #6 x 1/2" screw may be used at the joint, but
it is not required as the pipe will securely lock
when twisted.
NOTE: An elbow may also be attached to the
appliance collar. Attach in the same manner as
you would a vent section.
C. Attach vent components to each other
- Other vent sections may be added to the
previously installed section in accordance with
the requirements of the vertical vent figures
and tables. To add another vent component
to a length of vent run, align the dimpled end
over the inclined channel end of the previously
installed section, adjusting the radial alignment
until the four locking dimples are aligned with
the inlets of the four incline channels of the
previous section.
Push the vent component against the previous
section until it fully engages, then twist the
component clockwise running the dimples down
and along the incline channels until they seat at
the end of the channels. This seating position
is indicated by the alignment of the arrow and
dimple as shown in Figure 22.
D. Install firestop/spacer at ceiling - When
using Secure Vent, use SV4.5VF firestop/spacer
at ceiling joists; when using Secure Flex, use
SF4.5VF firestop/spacer. If there is living space
above the ceiling level, the firestop/spacer must
be installed on the bottom side of the ceiling.
If attic space is above the ceiling, the firestop/
spacer must be installed on the top side of
the joist. Route the vent sections through the
framed opening and secure the firestop/spacer
with 8d nails or other appropriate fasteners
at each corner. Remember to maintain 1"
(26 mm) clearance to combustibles, framing members, and attic or ceiling insulation
when running vertical chimney sections.
Attic insulation shield (H3907) may be used
to obtain the required clearances indicated
here. See installation accessories tables on
Pages 39 and 40.

E. Support the vertical vent run sections NOTE: Proper venting support is very important.
The weight of the vent must not be supported
by the fireplace in any degree.
Support the vertical portion of the venting
system every 8 feet (2.4m) above the fireplace
vent outlet. One method of support is by utilizing field-provided support straps (conventional
plumber's tape). Secure the plumber's tape to
the framing members with nails or screws.
Loop the tape around the vent, securing the
ends of the tape to the framing. If desired,
sheet metal screws #6 x 1/2" length may be
used to secure the support straps to the vent
pipe. See Figure 23.
F. Change vent direction to horizontal/inclined
run - At transition from or to a horizontal/inclined run, install the SV4.5E45 and SV4.5E90
elbows in the same manner as the straight vent
sections. The elbows feature a twist section to
allow them to be routed about the center axis
of their initial collar section to align with the
required direction of the next vent run element.
Twist elbow sections in a clockwise direction
only so as to avoid the possibility of unlocking
any of the previously connected vent sections.

I. Install the roof flashing - Extend the vent
sections through the roof structure. Install the
roof flashing over the vent section and position such that the vent column rises vertically
(use carpenters level) (Figure 26 ). Nail along
perimeter to secure flashing or adjust roofing
to overlap the flashing edges at top and sides
only and trim where necessary. Seal the top
and both sides of the flashing with waterproof
caulking.
K. Install the vertical termination - The final
step involves installation of the SV4.5CGV-1
Vertical Termination. Extend the vent sections
to the height as shown in the "Vertical vent termination section" on Page 6. The SV4.5CGV-1
Vertical Termination (Figure 28) installs in the
exact same fashion as any other Secure Vent
section. Align the termination over the end of
the previously installed section, adjusting the
radial alignment until the four locking dimples
of the termination are aligned with the inlets of
the four incline channels of the last vent section.
Push the termination down until it fully engages,
then twist the termination clockwise running the
dimples down and along the incline channels
until they seat at the end of the channels.
Figure 24
G. Continue installation of horizontal/inclined
sections - Continue with the installation of the
straight vent sections in horizontal/inclined run
as described in Step C. Install support straps
every 5' (1.52 m) along horizontal/inclined vent
runs using conventional plumber’s tape. It is
very important that the horizontal/inclined
run be maintained in a straight (no dips) and
slightly elevated plane in a direction away
from the fireplace 1/4" per foot (20 mm per
meter) of horizontal vent. Use a carpenter’s
level to measure from a constant surface and
adjust the support straps as necessary.
It is important to maintain the required clearances to combustibles: 1" (26 mm) at all sides
for all vertical runs; and 3" (77 mm) at the
top, 1" (26 mm) at sides, and 1" (26 mm) at
the bottom for all horizontal/inclined runs.
Figure 28
Figure 26
J. Install the storm collar - Install the storm
collar, supplied with the flashing, over the
vent/flashing joint. See Figure 27. Loosen the
storm collar screw. Slide collar down until it
meets the top of the flashing. Tighten the adjusting screw. Apply non-combustible caulking or
mastic around the circumference of the joint
to provide a water tight seal.
If the vent system extends more than 5' (1.5
m) above the roof flashing, stabilizers may be
necessary. Additional screws may be used at
section joints for added stability. Guide wires
may be attached to the joint for additional support on multiple joint configurations.

HORIZONTAL (OUTSIDE WALL)
TERMINATION SYSTEM
Figures 34, and Figures 37 to 42 on Pages
24 to 26 and their associated Horizontal Vent
Table illustrate the various horizontal venting
configurations that are possible for use with
these appliances. Secure Vent® pipe applications are shown in these figures; Secure Flex®
pipe may also be used. A Horizontal Vent Table
summarizes each system’s minimum and
maximum vertical and horizontal length values
that can be used to design and install the vent
components in a variety of applications.
Both of these horizontal vent systems terminate
through an outside wall. Building Codes limit
or prohibit terminating in specific areas. Refer
to Figure 6 and Page 9 for location guidelines.
Secure Vent SV4.5 direct vent system components
are unitized concentric pipe components featuring
positive twist lock connection, (refer to Figure 21
on Page 16). All of the appliances covered in this
document are fitted with collars having locking
inclined channels. The dimpled end of the vent
components fit over the appliance collar to create
the positive twist lock connection.
A. Plan the vent run Analyze the vent routing and determine the
types and quantities of sections required
4-1/2" (114 mm), 10-1/2" (267 mm), 22-1/2" (572
mm), 34-1/2" (876 mm) and 46-1/2" (1181 mm) net
section lengths are available. It is recommended
that you plan the venting so that a joint does not
occur in the ceiling or roof joists. Allow for elbows
as indicated in Figure 24 on Page 19.
Maintain a minimum 1" (26 mm) clearance to
combustibles on the vertical sections. Clearances
for the horizontal runs are; 3" (77 mm) on top, 1"
(26 mm) on sides, and 1" (26 mm) at the bottom.
B. Frame exterior wall opening Locate the center of the vent outlet on the exterior wall according to the dimensions shown in
Figures 13 & 14 on Pages 13 & 14. Cut and/or
frame an opening, 10-1/2" x 12-1/8" (267 mm x
308mm) inside dimensions, about this center.
C. Frame ceiling opening - If the vertical route
is to penetrate a ceiling, use plumb line to locate
the center above the appliance. Cut and/or frame
an opening, 10-1/2" x 10-1/2" (267 mm x 267
mm) inside dimensions, about this center (refer
to Figure 20 on Page 18).

Figure 34 -TYPICAL HORIZONTAL VENT INSTALLATION
The unitized design of the Secure Vent components will engage and seal both the inner and
outer pipe elements with the same procedure.
Sealant and securing screws are not required.
NOTE: An elbow may also be attached to the
appliance collar. Attach in the same manner as
you would a vent section.
E. Attach vent components to each other - Other
vent sections may be added to the previously
installed section in accordance with the requirements of the vent tables. To add another vent
component to a length of vent run, align the
dimpled end of the component over the inclined
channel end of the previously installed section,
adjusting the radial alignment until the four locking dimples are aligned with the inlets of the four
incline channels of the previous section. Push
the vent component against the previous section
until it fully engages, then twist the component
clockwise running the dimples down and along
the incline channels until they seat at the end of
the channels. This seating position is indicated
by the alignment of the arrow and dimple as
shown in Figure 22 on Page 18.
D. Attach vent components to appliance - To
attach a vent component to the appliance collar,
align the dimpled end over the collar, adjusting the
radial alignment until the four locking dimples are
aligned with the inlets of the four incline channels
on the collar (refer to Figure 21 on Page 18).
F. Install firestop/spacer at ceiling When using Secure Vent, use SV4.5VF firestop/
spacer at ceiling joists; when using Secure Flex,
use SF4.5VF firestop/spacer. If there is living
space above the ceiling level, the firestop/
spacer must be installed on the bottom side of
the ceiling. If attic space is above the ceiling, the
firestop/ spacer must be installed on the top side
of the joist. Route the vent sections through the
framed opening and secure the firestop/spacer
with 8d nails or other appropriate fasteners at
each corner.
Push the vent component against the collar until it
fully engages, then twist the component clockwise,
running the dimples down and along the incline
channels until they seat at the end of the channels.
Remember to maintain 1" (26 mm) clearance
to combustibles, framing members, and attic
or ceiling insulation when running vertical
chimney sections.
NOTE: DIAGRAMS & ILLUSTRATIONS ARE NOT TO SCALE.
G. Support the vertical run sections On the vertical run, support the venting system every 8 feet (2.4m) above the fireplace
vent outlet with field-provided support straps
(Plumber's tape). Attach the straps to the vent
pipe and secure to the framing members with
nails or screws. See Figure 23 on Page 18.
H. Change vent direction - At transition
from or to a horizontal/inclined run, install the
SV4.5E45 and SV4.5E90 elbows in the same
manner as the straight vent sections. The
elbows feature a twist section to allow them
to be routed about the center axis of their
initial collar section to align with the required
direction of the next vent run element. Twist
elbow sections in a clockwise direction only
so as to avoid the possibility of unlocking any
of the previously connected vent sections.
See Figure 24 on page 17.
I. Continue installation of horizontal/inclined
sections - Continue with the installation of the
straight vent sections in horizontal/inclined run
as described in Step E. Install support straps
every 5 ft. (1.52 m) along horizontal/inclined
vent runs using conventional plumber’s tape.
See Figure 34, it is very important that the
horizontal/inclined run be maintained in a
straight (no dips) and recommended to be in
a slightly elevated plane, in a direction away
from the fireplace of 1/4" rise per foot (20 mm
per meter) which is ideal, though rise per foot
run ratios that are smaller are acceptable all the
way down to at or near level. Use a carpenter’s
level to measure from a constant surface and
adjust the support straps as necessary.
It is important to maintain the required clearances to combustibles: 1" (26 mm) at all sides
for all vertical runs; and 3" (77 mm) at the
top, 1" (26 mm) at sides, and 1" (26 mm) at
the bottom for all horizontal/inclined runs.

J. Assemble vent run to exterior wall - If not
previously measured, locate the center of the
vent at the exterior wall. Prepare an opening
as described in Step B. Assemble the vent
system to point where the terminus of the last
section is within 7" (178 mm) to 11-1/4" (286
mm) inboard of the exterior surface to which
the SV4.5 HT termination is to be attached, see
Figure 36. If the terminus of the last section
is not within this distance, use the telescopic
vent section SV4.5LA, as the last vent section.
For wall thicknesses greater than that shown in
Figure 36, refer to Table 8 on Page 24. This table
lists the additional venting components needed
(in addition to the termination and adaptor) for
a particular range of wall thicknesses.
K. Attach termination adaptor - Attach the
adaptor (adaptor - SV4.5RCH - provided with
the termination) to the vent section or telescoping vent section), elbow or appliance collar as
shown in Figure 35 in the same manner as
any SV4.5 vent component (refer to Step E).
L. Install Firestop/Spacer at exterior wall - When
using the square termination, install SV4.5HF
(Secure Vent®), SF4.5HF (Secure Flex®) Firestop/
Spacer over the opening at the exterior side of
the framing, long side up, with the 3" spacer
clearance at the top as shown in Figure 35, and
nail into place.
(The Firestop/Spacer may also be installed over
the opening at the interior side of the framing.)
M. Install the desired termination 1. Install the square termination (SV4.5HT-2)For the last step , from outside the exterior
wall, slide the collars of the termination onto
the adaptor (the outer over the outer and the
inner inside the inner) until the termination
seats against the exterior wall surface to which
it will be attached. Orient the housing of the
termination with the arrow pointed upwards.
Secure the termination to the exterior wall. The
horizontal termination must not be recessed
into the exterior wall or siding by more than
the 1-1/4" (32 mm) as shown in Figure 36.
SVHRK Snorkel Cap –The snorkel cap is
designed to be fitted into a basement window
box. The SVHRK cap is for use with flex vent
The vertical distance between the inlet and outlet
of the cap is 28" (711 mm). pipe.
IMPORTANT: The vent termination is hot
while in operation and for a period of
time following the use of the fireplace.
To prevent contact with hot surfaces,
we recommend the use of a Termination Guard. See Page 57. This can be
purchased at your local dealer.
To help minimize water infiltration it
is recommended that the Firestop/
Spacer (SV4.5HF) be installed on
the exterior side of the wall.

Horizontal terminations have been designed to perform in a wide range of weather
conditions. Our terminations meet or exceed industry standards.
When selecting the locations of your horizontal terminations, do not place the termination
where water from eaves and adjoining rooflines may create a heavy flow of cascading water
onto the termination cap. If the cap must be placed where the possibility of cascading water
exists, it is the responsibility of the builder to direct the water away from the termination
cap by using gutters or other means.
Take care to carefully follow the installation instructions for the termination, including the
use of silicone caulking where required.

VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL VENTING USING
SECURE FLEX® KITS AND COMPONENTS
Secure Flex venting kits and components may
be used in any venting application where rigid
Secure Vent® (SV4.5) direct vent components
can be used. All restrictions, clearances and
allowances that pertain to the rigid piping apply
to the flexible venting. Secure Flex kits may
not be modified; also, under no circumstances
may separate sections of flex pipe be joined
together. Secure Flex kits may be added to
the end of a vent run made up of rigid Secure
Vent (SV4.5) vent sections provided that doing
so does not violate any of the venting length,
height, routing, horizontal to vertical ratio requirements or clearance considerations detailed
in this manual.
®
Secure Flex kits come with an included adaptor
that can be fitted to the appliance collar or the
inclined channel end of the last Secure Vent
(SV4.5) vent section in a rigid system in the
exact same fashion as any other Secure Vent
section. Align the dimpled end of the adaptor
over the previously installed section or appliance
collar, adjusting the radial alignment until the
four locking dimples of the adaptor are aligned
with the inlets of the four incline channels of
the last vent section or collar. Push on the
adaptor until it fully engages, then twist the
adaptor clockwise running the dimples down
and along the incline channels until they seat
at the end of the channels.
Attach the flexible vent to the adaptor as follows (see Figure 43):
A. Install the Inner Flex Pipe 1. Install the small gear clamp loosely around
the inner flexible vent pipe, push it back out
of the way.
2. Apply a bead of Mill-Pac Black (700°F) high
temperature sealant - Catalog No. 10K81)
to the inner adaptor collar, approximately
1/2" from the end.
3. Pull and extend the inner flexible vent pipe.
4. Slide the inner flex pipe over the adaptor collar. Ensure the flexible vent pipe completely
engages the adaptor collar to a distance of
1-3/4" from the end, and that it is free from
damage or tears.
5.Slide the gear clamp down and tighten it
fully to secure the flexible vent to the adaptor
inner collar approximately 3/4" from the end
of the flex.
6.Install three screws 120 degrees apart
through the flexible vent pipe and into the
adaptor collar just below the gear clamp to
provide additional security to the connection.
B. Install the Outer Flex Pipe 1.Install the large gear clamp loosely around
the outer flexible vent pipe, push it back out
of the way.

5.Slide the gear clamp down and tighten it
fully to secure the flexible vent to the adaptor
outer collar approximately 3/4" from the end
of the flex.
6.Install three screws 120 degrees apart
through the flexible vent pipe and into the
adaptor collar just below the gear clamp to
provide additional security to the connection.
C. Route Flex Vent Ensure that the flex vent is properly routed to
provide the required clearance. Do Not allow
the flexible vent to bend in a radius tighter than
5" (127 mm). Refer to Figure 44. Support
horizontal sections of flex with metal straps at
2 foot (0.61 m) intervals.
D. Install Firestop/Spacers at ceilings and walls When Secure Flex penetrates a wall or ceiling,
a firestop/spacer is required: use the SF4.5VF
firestop/spacer for ceilings and the SF4.5HF
firestop/spacer for walls.
See the appropriate sections and figures shown
throughout the venting section for their installation requirements.

E. Attach Flex Vent to Termination Secure Flex components can be purchased
separately and attached to bulk lengths of
Secure Flex flexible tubing cut to size at the
job site. Secure the flexible vent to the Secure
Flex terminations in the same manner (see
Figure 43) as it was attached to the adaptor.
NOTE: Secure Flex vent must be attached
to Secure Flex terminations only. DO NOT
substitute Secure Vent terminations or the
Secure Vent adaptor for Secure Flex components. The collars of Secure Flex terminations
and adaptors have a different circumference
than that used with the Secure Vent pipe.
Additionally, Secure Flex components have
an extended length center tube for use in
attaching the flexible vent.

Step 7. CONNECTING GAS LINE
Make gas line connections. All codes require a
shut-off valve mounted in the supply line. Figure
50 illustrates two methods for connecting the
gas supply. The flex-line method is acceptable
in the U.S., however, Canadian requirements
vary depending on locality. Installation must
be in compliance with local codes. A sediment
trap is recommended in the gas piping within
the home to prevent moisture and debris in the
line from damaging the valve.
These appliances are equipped with a gas flex
line for use (where permitted) in connecting the
unit to the gas line. A gas flex line is provided
to aid in attaching the direct vent appliance to
the gas supply. The gas flex line can only be
used where local codes permit. Refer to Figure
51 for flex line location. The flex line is rated
for both natural and propane gas. A manual
shut off valve is also provided with the flex line.
The gas control valve is located in the lower
control compartment.
Installation and Operation Instructions
900300-01, 01/2018
The gas controls can be found behind the hinged
drop-down panel.
Open the control compartment access panel,
by lifting panel approximately 1/2" to disengage
and swing the panel open from top.
Remove the bottom compartment door by
sliding the hinge pin, located at the door’s left
side, to the right until it disengages from the
left corner post hole. Pull the door diagonally
to the left, away from the fireplace.
The lower control compartment door on the
side opposite the valve lifts on and off.
The millivolt control valve has a 3/8"
(10 mm) NPT thread inlet port. The electronic
control valve has a 1/2" (13 mm) NPT thread
inlet port and is fitted with a 1/2" x 3/8" (13 mm x
10 mm) NPT fitting.
Secure all joints tightly using appropriate
tools and sealing compounds (ensure propane
resistant compounds are used in propane
applications).
TEST ALL CONNECTIONS FOR GAS LEAKS
(FACTORY AND FIELD):
WARNING
Never use an open flame to
check for leaks.
Turn on gas supply and test for gas leaks, using a gas leak test solution (also referred to as
bubble leak solution).
NOTE: Using a soapy water solution is an
effective leak test solution but it is not recommended, because the soap residue that is left
on the pipes/fittings can result in corrosion
over time.
A.Light the appliance (refer to the lighting
instructions label in the control compartment or in the Installation and Operation
Instructions manual).
B.Brush all joints and connections with the gas
leak test solution to check for leaks. If bubbles
are formed, or gas odor is detected, turn the
gas control knob (off/pilot/on) to the “OFF”
position. Either tighten or refasten the leaking
connection, then retest as described above.
C.When the gas lines are tested and leak free,
be sure to rinse off the leak testing solution.

Step 8. VERIFYING APPLIANCE OPERATION
With gas line installed run initial system
checkout before closing up the front of the unit.
Follow the pilot lighting instructions provided
in the Installation and Operation Instructions
manual. For piezo igniter location see Figure
51 on Page 29 (millivolt appliances only).
NOTE: Lighting Instructions are also found on
the literature tag tied to the gas piping next
to the gas valve. To access the tag, open the
lower control compartment door (Figure 51) by
pushing in simultaneously the left and right top
corners of the door. (The door is hinged at the
bottom). Remove the bottom compartment door
by sliding the hinge pin, located at the door’s
left side, to the right until it disengages from
the left corner post hole. Remove the modesty
panel. To remove the modesty panel, slide the
panel forward until it contacts the cabinet bottom panel, then lift straight up and tilt forward.
Remove the modesty panel carefully, so that
none of the wires become loose or disconnected.
When first lighting the appliance, it will take a
few minutes for the line to purge itself of air.
Once purging is complete, the pilot and burner
will light and operate as indicated in the instruction manual.
Subsequent lighting of the appliance will not
require such purging. Inspect the pilot flame
(remove logs, if necessary, handling carefully).
The flame should project 1" (26 mm) beyond
the hood at all three ports (see Figure 52).
Replace logs if removed for pilot inspection.
To light the burner; turn “ON” the remote wall
switch and rotate the gas valve control knob
counterclockwise to the “ON” position (“ON”
will be at the top side of the valve).

WARNING
• DO NOT attempt to install the logs until the appliance installation has been completed, the gas
line connected and tested for leaks and the initial
burner operation has been checked out.
• The size and position of the log set was engineered
to give the appliance a safe, reliable and attractive flame pattern. Any attempt to use a different
log set in the fireplace will void the warranty and
will result in incomplete combustion, sooting,
and poor flame quality.
• Logs get very hot and will remain hot up to one
hour after gas supply is turned off. Handle only
when logs are cool. Turn off all electricity to the
appliance before you install grate, volcanic stone,
vermiculite, embers and logs.
• This appliance is not designed to burn wood. Any
attempt to do so could cause irreparable damage to
the appliance and prove hazardous to your safety.
• If logs are not installed according to the log
installation instructions, flame impingement and
improper combustion could occur and result in soot
and/or excessive production of carbon monoxide
(CO), a colorless, odorless, toxic gas.
NOTE: It is important to ensure proper log and or media placement per the manual when installing these units. Verify pilot
flame is not obstructed. See Verifying Appliance Operation on
Page 31.

Step 10. REMOVING AND INSTALLING
THE GLASS DOOR
WARNING
•Do not attempt to substitute the
materials used on these doors,
or replace cracked or broken
glass.
•Handle this glass with extreme
care! Glass is susceptible to
damage – Do not scratch or
handle roughly while reinstalling the glass door frame.
•The glass door(s) of this appliance must only be replaced as
a complete unit as provided
by the manufacturer. Do not
attempt to replace broken,
cracked or chipped glass separately.
•Do not attempt to touch the
front enclosure glass with your
hands while the fireplace is in
use.
•DO NOT abuse glass door by
striking or slamming shut.
WARNING
The door should easily close
without needing to be pressed
down. If it has to be pressed
down to close, the gasket in the
top of the door should be dressed
so it lays on the glass.
Removing Glass Enclosure Panel
(see Figure 62)
To access the glass door securing latches, first
remove the hood by pulling firmly straight away
from the unit. Remove the front face assembly
by lifting top and bottom evenly approximately
1/2" and pulling straight out from the unit once
the brackets are disengaged.
Locate the two (2) glass door spring latches at
the top of the control compartment (see Figure
58). Pull out each spring latch until it disengages
from the door frame bottom vee-flange.
Remove the door by tilting it outward at the
bottom and lifting it up. Set the door aside, taking care to protect it from inadvertent damage.
Installing Glass Enclosure Panel
(see Figure 58)
Retrieve the glass door. Visually inspect the
gasket on the backside of the frame. Gasket
surface must be clean, free of irregularities
and seated firmly.
Position the door in front of the firebox opening
with the bottom of the door held away from the
fireplace (Figure 58). Hook the top flange of the
door frame over the top of the firebox frame.
Let the bottom of the door frame swing gently
in towards the fireplace ensuring that the gasket
seats evenly as the door frame draws shut. Fasten the two spring latches located underneath
the firebox floor to the door's vee-flange.
NOTE: Front Face Assembly with
barrier installed must be reinstalled prior to operation.
Top Flange
Glass Door Frame
Glass Door
WARNING
Do not operate appliance with
the glass front removed, cracked
or broken.
Only doors certified with the appliance
shall be used.
Flame Appearance and sooting
Proper flame appearance is a flame which is
blue at the base and becomes yellowish-orange
in the body of the flame.
When the appliance is first lit, the entire
flame may be blue and will gradually turn
yellowish-orange during the first 15 minutes
of operation. If the flame remains blue, or if
the flame is orange with evidence of sooting
(black tip), the air shutter opening may need
to be adjusted.
If the air shutter opening is closed too far,
sooting may develop. Sooting is indicated by
black puffs developing at the tips of very long
orange flames. Sooting results in black deposits
forming on the logs, appliance inside surfaces
and on exterior surfaces adjacent to the vent
termination.
Sooting is caused by incomplete combustion
in the flames and lack of combustion air entering the air shutter opening. To achieve a warm
yellowish-orange flame with an orange body
that does not soot, the shutter opening must be
adjusted between these two extremes.
Air Shutter Adjustment Guidelines
• If there is smoke or soot present, first check
the log set positioning to ensure that the
flames are not impinging on any of the logs.
If the log set is properly positioned and a
sooting condition still exists, then the air
shutter opening should be increased.
• The more offsets in the vent system, the larger
the air shutter opening will need to be.
• An appliance operated with the air shutter
opened too far, may have flames that appear
blue and transparent. These weak, blue and
transparent flames are termed anemic.
• Propane models may exhibit flames which
candle or appear stringy. If this is present
and persists, adjust the air shutter to a more
closed position, then operate the appliance
for a few more minutes to ensure that the
flame normalizes and the flames do not
appear sooty.
The following chart is provided to aid you in
achieving the correct air shutter adjustment
for your installation.

CAUTION
• Soot will be produced if the
air shutter is closed too much.
Any damage due to sooting,
resulting from improperly
setting the air shutter, is not
covered under the warranty.
• The air shutter door and
nearby appliance surfaces
are hot. Exercise caution to
avoid injury while adjusting
flame appearance.

Burn-in Period
During the first few fires of this appliance there
will be some odor due to the curing of the
paint and burning off of lubricants used in the
manufacturing process. Depending on your
use, the burn-in period may take a few hours
or a few days.
KEEP YOUR HOUSE WELL VENTILATED
DURING THE CURING PROCESS. THE ODOR
AND HAZE EMITTED DURING THE CURING
PROCESS CAN BE QUITE NOTICEABLE AND
MAY SET OFF A SMOKE DETECTOR.
If an optional blower is installed, Do Not turn
it on during the Burn-In period.
A white film may develop on the glass front
during the first few fires as part of the curing
process. The glass should be kept clean during
the first two weeks of use to prevent the film from
baking on (making it very difficult to remove).

items from the surfaces of the termination prior to use. Also be aware of shrubs
and plantings that may encroach on the
termination.
Inspect Venting System
The appliance and venting system should be
thoroughly inspected before initial use and
at least annually by a qualified service technician (inspection should include ensuring that
exhaust or intake passages are unobstructed
and vent components are properly assembled
and not damaged). Homeowner must contact
a qualified service technician at once if any
abnormal condition is observed.
If the venting system is disassembled for any
reason, a qualified service technician should
follow vent installation instructions for proper
reassembly and proper sealing of the venting
system components. However, more frequent
periodic inspections and cleanings should be
performed by the homeowner.

Installation and Operation Instructions
900300-01, 01/2018
NOTE: Improper positioning of logs can create
carbon build-up and will alter the performance
of the appliance.
NOTE: Clean glass after first two weeks of
operation (after Burn-In period is over) and then
only when necessary and when the fireplace is
cool. Wipe surface with a clean, dampened, soft
cloth. Follow with a dry, soft towel as desired.
Take care not to scratch the glass surface.
Replacing Logs
The viewing glass should be cleaned periodically to remove any build-up caused from the
following:
Re-Install Embers and Logs
WARNING
Do not use abrasive cleaners
on glass. Never clean the glass
when it is hot.
• During start-up, it is normal for condensation to form on the inside of the glass (this
condensation and fog will usually disappear
in a few minutes). The moisture can cause
lint, dust and other airborne particles to cling
to the glass surface.
• Initial curing of the high temperature paint
and burning off of lubricants used in the
manufacturing process may result in a film
on the glass.
• A white coating may form on the glass as a
result of impurities and minerals in the fuel.
It is recommended that the glass be cleaned
two or three times during each heating season,
depending on the circumstances present. The
following cleaning solutions are approved for
use to clean glass:
• Non-ammonia based household cleaner
• 50%-50% mix of white vinegar and water
• Gas fireplace/stove glass cleaner
Inspect Glass Gasket - Visually inspect the
gasket on the backside of the glass enclosure
panels. The gasket surface must be clean, free
of irregularities and seated firmly.
Clean Control Compartment
Keep control compartment clean by vacuuming
or brushing at least twice a year. More frequent
cleaning may be required due to excessive lint
from carpeting, bedding materials, etc. It is
important that control compartments, burners
and circulating air passageways of the appliance
be kept clean.
Clean Logs And Burner
Carefully remove the logs (use care when handling the fiber logs, as they become quite fragile
after curing). Vacuum out any foreign matter
(lint, carbon, etc.) on the burner. Ensure the
burner ports are “open.” Remove any carbon
deposits from the under side of the logs using
a vacuum cleaner, or a soft bristled brush (i.e.
paint brush).
NOTE: DIAGRAMS & ILLUSTRATIONS ARE NOT TO SCALE.
If the logs become damaged by accident or
improper handling and need replacement, use
only the proper replacement logs from manufacturer (see Page 48 for ordering information).
Carefully follow placement instructions on
Pages 48 through 50. All logs should fit
onto corresponding pins and/or log stoppers. This will ensure a proper flame and
safe combustion.
Inspect Wiring
Refer to wiring diagrams on Page 53.
CAUTION: Label all wires prior to disconnection when servicing controls. Wiring
errors can cause improper and dangerous
operation. Verify proper operation after
servicing.
ATTENTION: Au moment de l'entretien
des commandes, étiquetez tous les fils
avant de les débrancher. Des erreurs
de cáblage peuvent entraîner un fonctionnement inadéquat et dangereux.
Inspect and clean all wire connections. Ensure
that there is no melting or damage. Inspection
should include:
• Terminals at the Valve
• OFF/ON Switch
• (Optional Control Switch) Wall Thermostat,
Remote Control or Remote Wall Switch Kit
Inspect Burner Flame and Pilot Flame
Appearance
Periodically do a visual check of the burner
flame and the pilot flame. Ensure that the
burner flame appearance resembles the flame
shown in Figure 85 and as described in Flame
Appearance and Sooting on Page 55. Refer
to Figures 87 and 88 on Page 56 for more
information about the pilot flame appearance.
Contact a qualified service technician at once
if any abnormal condition is observed.
NOTE: It is important to ensure proper log
and or media placement per the manual when
installing these units. Verify pilot flame is not
obstructed.
Small Area Paint Touch-up
Only use a factory supplied paint kit for touchups. Paint is available at your local Innovative
Hearth Products dealer. Never attempt to paint
a hot fireplace.
Do not attempt to repaint the appliance until the
finish is completely cured (see Burn-In Period
on Page 42). If the surface later becomes
stained or marred, it may be lightly sanded
and touched up with spray paint.

WARNING
• DO NOT attempt to install the logs until the appliance installation has been completed, the gas
line connected and tested for leaks and the initial
burner operation has been checked out.
• The size and position of the log set was engineered
to give the appliance a safe, reliable and attractive flame pattern. Any attempt to use a different
log set in the fireplace will void the warranty and
will result in incomplete combustion, sooting,
and poor flame quality.
• Logs get very hot and will remain hot up to one
hour after gas supply is turned off. Handle only
when logs are cool. Turn off all electricity to the
appliance before you install grate, volcanic stone,
vermiculite, embers and logs.
• This appliance is not designed to burn wood. Any
attempt to do so could cause irreparable damage
to the appliance and prove hazardous to your
safety.
• If logs are not installed according to the log
installation instructions, flame impingement
and improper combustion could occur and result
in soot and/or excessive production of carbon
monoxide (CO), a colorless, odorless, toxic gas.

BURNER ADJUSTMENTS
(QUALIFIED TECHNICIANS ONLY)
Flame Appearance and Sooting
Proper flame appearance is a flame which is
blue at the base and becomes yellowish-orange
in the body of the flame.
When the appliance is first lit, the entire flame
may be blue and will gradually turn yellowishorange during the first 15 minutes of operation.
If the flame remains blue, or if the flame is
orange with evidence of sooting (black tip), the
air shutter opening may need to be adjusted.
If the air shutter opening is closed too far,
sooting may develop. Sooting is indicated by
black puffs developing at the tips of very long
orange flames. Sooting results in black deposits
forming on the logs, appliance inside surfaces
and on exterior surfaces adjacent to the vent
termination.
Air Shutter Adjustment Guidelines
• If there is smoke or soot present, first
check the log set positioning to ensure that
the flames are not impinging on any of the
logs. If the log set is properly positioned
and a sooting condition still exists, then the
air shutter opening should be increased.
• The more offsets in the vent system, the larger
the air shutter opening will need to be.
• An appliance operated with the air shutter
opened too far, may have flames that appear
blue and transparent. These weak, blue and
transparent flames are termed anemic.
• Propane models may exhibit flames which
candle or appear stringy. If this is present
and persists, adjust the air shutter to a more
closed position, then operate the appliance
for a few more minutes to ensure that the
flame normalizes and the flames do not
appear sooty.
The following chart is provided to aid you in
achieving the correct air shutter adjustment
for your installation.
Air Shutter Adjustment Guidelines:
Amount of

Adjustment
If air shutter is
closed too far
Flame will
be orange
Air shutter
gap should be
increased
If air shutter is
open too far
Flame will

Air shutter
gap should be
decreased
Sooting is caused by incomplete combustion
in the flames and lack of combustion air entering the air shutter opening. To achieve a warm
yellowish-orange flame with an orange body
that does not soot, the shutter opening must be
adjusted between these two extremes.

TROUBLESHOOTING THE MILLIVOLT GAS CONTROL SYSTEM
NOTE: Before troubleshooting the gas control system, be sure external gas shut off valve (located at gas supply inlet) is in the “ON”
position.
Important: Valve system troubleshooting should only be accomplished by a qualified service technician.
SYMPTOM
1. Spark igniter will not
light pilot after repeated
triggering of igniter button.
2. Pilot will not stay lit
after carefully following
the lighting instructions.
POSSIBLE CAUSES
A. Defective igniter
(no spark at electrode).
Check for spark at electrode and pilot; if no spark and electrode wire is
properly connected, replace igniter.
B. Defective or misaligned electrode at
pilot (spark at electrode).
Using a match, light pilot. If pilot lights, turn off pilot and trigger the
igniter button again. If pilot lights, an improper gas mixture caused the
bad lighting and a longer purge period is recommended. If pilot will
not light – check gap at electrode and pilot – should be 1/8" to have a
strong spark. If gap measures 1/8", replace pilot (Figure 86 on Page 56).
C. Gas supply pressure errant.
Check inlet gas pressure. It should be within the limits as marked on
the rating plate.
D. Pilot orifice plugged.
Clean or replace pilot orifice.
A. Defective pilot generator
(thermocouple).
Check pilot flame, it must impinge on thermocouple (Figure 86 on
Page 56), clean and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement
on thermocouple. Ensure that the connection between the valve and
thermocouple are tight and secure.
A. Wall switch or wires defective.
3. Pilot burning, no gas
to burner, Valve knob
“ON,” Wall Switch “ON.”
4. Frequent pilot/burner
outage problem.
CORRECTIVE ACTION
Check wall switch and wires for proper connections. Jumper wire
across terminals at wall switch, if burner comes on, replace defective
wall switch. If okay, jumper wires across wall switch wires at valve, if
burner comes on, wires are faulty or connections are bad.
B. Thermopile may not be generating
sufficient millivoltage.
Check thermopile with millivolt meter. Take reading at thermopile terminals
of gas valve. Should read 325 millivolts minimum with optional wall switch
“OFF.” Replace faulty thermopile if reading is below specified minimum.
C. Plugged burner orifice.
Check burner orifice for stoppage and remove.
A. Pilot flame may be too low or blowing
(high) causing the pilot/valve safety to
drop out.
Clean and/or adjust pilot flame for maximum flame impingement on
thermocouple (Figure 86 on Page 56).
