WARNING
Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service or
maintenance can cause injury or property damage. Refer
to this manual for correct installation and operational
procedures. For assistance or additional information
consult a qualified installer, service agency, or the gas
supplier.
H. Odor During Operation
Neither natural gas nor propane gas give off an odor when
burned. The nature of a vent free combustion system,
however, is such that odors may occasionally be produced
during heater operation when impurities exist in the immediate
area. Cleaning solutions, paint, solvents, cigarette smoke,
candles, adhesives, new carpet or textiles, etc., all can create
fumes. These fumes may mix with combustion air and can
create odor. Such odors will disappear over time, however the
condition can be alleviated by opening a window or otherwise
providing additional ventilation to the area.
WARNING
Failure to keep the primary air opening(s) of the burner(s)
clean may result in sooting and property damage.

I. Vent Free Features
The Sundance Vent Free gas stove is an unvented gas heating
appliance tested and listed to the ANSI standard Z21.11.2,
Latest Edition. This appliance is specifically configured to
burn either Natural Gas or Propane fuel, as indicated on the
metal rating plate attached to the rear shroud. The Sundance
is not fuel convertible.
The stove is shipped fully assembled and ready for installation.
!
WARNING
If the area in which the heater may be operated does
not meet the required volume for indoor combustion air,
combustion and ventilation air shall be provided by one
of the methods described in the National Fuel Gas Code,
ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, the International Fuel Gas Code
or applicable local codes.
The stove is equipped with an SIT control valve that allows
thermostatic control, on/off switch or a remote switch (not
supplied).
Both models incorporate variable regulators that allow you to
adjust burner heat output between HIGH, (28,000 Btu), and
LOW, (19,500 Btu). See the Operation Section for details.
The standing pilot incorporates an Oxygen Depletion System
(ODS/pilot) designed to shut off the appliance if enough fresh
air is not available.
J. Fresh Air Requirements
Fresh Air Requirements for Combustion and Ventilation:
Modern construction standards have resulted in homes that
are highly energy-efficient and that allow little heat loss.
Your home needs to breathe, however, and all fuel-burning
appliances within it require fresh air in order to function properly
and safely. Exhaust fans, clothes dryers, fireplaces, and other
fuel burning appliances all use the air inside the building. If
the available fresh air is insufficient to meet the demands of
these appliances, problems can result.
The Sundance Vent Free Stove has specific fresh air
requirements. You must determine that these fresh air
requirements will be met within the space where the
appliance will be installed. The following information will
help you insure that adequate fresh air is available for the
heater to function properly.
!
WARNING
This heater must have fresh air for proper operation. If
not, poor fuel combustion could result. Read the following
instructions to insure proper fresh air for this and other
fuel-burning appliances in your home.

Maintenance
The following procedures will help ensure that your heater
continues to perform safely and efficiently.
Screen Hooks
A. Cleaning Firebox & Inspection
Cleanliness is critical to correct operation of the heater.
The log set, burner, valve controls and air circulation
areas must all be kept free of dust and unobstructed by
debris. Inspect these areas before each use and clean
whenever accumulation is evident. Follow the simple
procedure outlined below.
Frequent cleaning may be necessary in living environments
subject to excessive carpet lint or pet hair. For example, if
you live with a dog that sheds continuously, you will need to
inspect the burner area frequently and clean it as often as
the accumulation requires. In extreme conditions, it may
be necessary to clean the burner and log set monthly
or bi-weekly.
This appliance should be inspected and thoroughly
cleaned annually by a qualified gas technician.
B. Cleaning Procedure
1. Turn the burner OFF and let the heater cool completely
before cleaning.
2. Lift the Front plate up and then swing the bottom out to
disengage it from the heater shell.
3. Remove the screen by lifting up and away from the unit.
Or, if so equipped, remove the glass panel by rotating the
two cams toward the front of the firebox. Lift the panel up
and off of the firebox frame. (Figure 16)
4. Carefully inspect the log set for damage. Contact your local
dealer if any damage is evident. DO NOT OPERATE THE
HEATER WITH A DAMAGED OR LOOSE LOG SET.
Use a soft-bristled brush vacuum cleaner attachment to
remove dust or debris from the log set, pilot and burner.
Use care as the log set is fragile.
5. Inspect the catalytic combustor at the top of the firebox.
Replace the combustor if any damage or deterioration is
evident.
6. Replace the screen or glass panel and the front plate.
DO NOT OPERATE THE HEATER WITH THE SCREEN
/ GLASS PANEL OR FRONT PLATE REMOVED.
16
Glass Latch
Figure 16 - Remove the screen or glass panel.
C. Glass Replacement
If so equipped, do not operate this appliance with the glass
panel cracked, broken, or removed. Replace damaged
glass only with an approved ceramic glass panel. Follow the
Cleaning Procedure instructions regarding parts removal.
D. Care of CastST712
Iron
UVS27
An occasional dusting with a dry rag will help keep the painted
screen
surfaces looking new.
Use removal
high-temperature stove paints,
1/02 local dealer, to touch-up areas as
available through your
needed. Clean areas to be painted with a wire brush and be
sure to cover the log set, burner and valve assembly. Apply
the paint sparingly; two light coats of paint will give better
results than a single heavy coat.
Porcelain enamel surfaces should be cleaned with a
soft, damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents. If
necessary, use only a cleaning agent formulated specifically
for use on porcelain enamel surfaces.
!
WARNING
!
WARNING
Turn the burner Pilot OFF before applying paint. NEVER
paint pilot or around pilot area.
Dust and debris accumulation can result in poor
performance. Inspect the Valve compartment, burner parts
and log set frequently and Clean these parts monthly or
as often as accumulation warrants.

Hearth & Home Technologies
LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY
Hearth & Home Technologies, on behalf of its hearth brands (”HHT”), extends the following warranty for HHT
gas, wood, pellet, coal and electric hearth appliances that are purchased from an HHT authorized dealer.
WARRANTY COVERAGE:
HHT warrants to the original owner of the HHT appliance at the site of installation, and to any transferee taking ownership
of the appliance at the site of installation within two years following the date of original purchase, that the HHT appliance
will be free from defects in materials and workmanship at the time of manufacture. After installation, if covered components manufactured by HHT are found to be defective in materials or workmanship during the applicable warranty period,
HHT will, at its option, repair or replace the covered components. HHT, at its own discretion, may fully discharge all of its
obligations under such warranties by replacing the product itself or refunding the verified purchase price of the product
itself. The maximum amount recoverable under this warranty is limited to the purchase price of the product. This warranty
is subject to conditions, exclusions and limitations as described below.
WARRANTY PERIOD:
Warranty coverage begins on the date of original purchase. In the case of new home construction, warranty coverage
begins on the date of first occupancy of the dwelling or six months after the sale of the product by an independent,
authorized HHT dealer/ distributor, whichever occurs earlier. The warranty shall commence no later than 24 months
following the date of product shipment from HHT, regardless of the installation or occupancy date. The warranty period for
parts and labor for covered components is produced in the following table.
The term “Limited Lifetime” in the table below is defined as: 20 years from the beginning date of warranty coverage for
gas appliances, and 10 years from the beginning date of warranty coverage for wood, pellet, and coal appliances. These
time periods reflect the minimum expected useful lives of the designated components under normal operating conditions.

•
The owner’s exclusive remedy and HHT’s sole obligation under this warranty, under any other warranty, express or
implied, or in contract, tort or otherwise, shall be limited to replacement, repair, or refund, as specified above. In no
event will HHT be liable for any incidental or consequential damages caused by defects in the appliance. Some states
do not allow exclusions or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so these limitations may not apply to you.
