Getting Started
Introducing the Heat-N-Glo Gas Fireplaces
The Heat-N-Glo Warranty will be voided by, and Heat-N-Glo
disclaims any responsibility for, the following actions:
• Installation of any damaged fireplace or vent system
component.
• Modification of the fireplace or vent system.
• Installation other than as instructed by Heat-N-Glo.
• Improper positioning of the gas logs or the glass door.
• Installation and/or use of any component part not manufactured and approved by Heat-N-Glo, not withstanding

Clearance Requirements
B
The top, back, and sides of the fireplace are defined by
stand-offs. The minimum clearance to a perpendicular wall
extending past the face of the fireplace is one inch (25
mm). The back of the fireplace may be recessed 21 1/2
inches (546 mm) into combustible construction.

WARNING:
To ensure proper clearances
the front framing header
must be installed on its
narrow edge and to the front
of the frame.
The minimum clearance from the top face of the fireplace
to combustible finishing materials such as drywall, is 1” (25mm).
The distance from the unit to combustible construction
is to be measured from the unit outer wrap surface to
the combustible construction, NOT from the screw
heads that secure the unit together.

Step 3. Negative Pressure Make-up Air
A 4-inch side collar/damper (found in AK-TV Kit) must be
installed on the fireplace by attaching the side collar to the
outer wrap of the fireplace at the right-hand rear corner using
sheetmetal screws. See Figure 4. Attach one end of a 4inch flexible air duct (not provided in the AK-TV Kit) to the
side collar and the other end of the duct to the make-up air
termination cap. Use plastic tie straps to secure the ends
of the flex duct to each collar.
Negative Pressure warning: When negative pressure is
present, an atmospherically vented fireplace (with a draft
hood) may not function properly and it may down draft. In
the case of a gas appliance, spillage of the combustion
gases may occur. This may create a dangerous carbon
monoxide situation in the house.
The causes of negative pressure to a house can include
the following:
•
Stack effect in the building.
•
Exhaust only appliances (mechanically and
atmospherically vented).
•
Inadequate make-up air (which is increasingly
more prevalent in new construction).
Air Damper
Before lighting the burner, open the damper. Close the
damper when the burner is off.
Detailed installation instructions for Model AK-TV Outside
Air kit are found in the kit.
NOTE: This fireplace will operate correctly only if adequate
ventilation is provided to allow proper draft to the fireplace
system. Heat-N-Glo assumes no responsibility for the
improper performance of the fireplace system caused by
inadequate draft due to environmental conditions, down
drafts, tight sealing construction of the structure, or
mechanical exhausting devices which create a negative air
pressure within the structure where the fireplace is located.
fire-parts.com
It is recommended that all natural venting non-air tight gas
fireplaces have outside air connected to them. It is also
recommended that the building be mechanically or passively
balanced to allow atmospherically vented appliances, such
as top vented gas fireplaces with draft hoods, to draft
properly. If the home experiences negative pressure or is
likely to experience negative pressure, connection to an
outside air source is mandatory.
AIR DAMPER
ASSEMBLY
Installing Optional Outside Make-up Air:
This unit is equipped to accept outside air. By using outside
make-up air, the amount of room air used for combustion
will be reduced. It is recommended that an AK-TV air kit be
used with this appliance.
!
4-INCH DUCT

Figure 4. Make-up Air
WARNING: IN A NEGATIVE PRESSURE CONDITION (LIKELY TO OCCUR IN NEW HOMES
THAT DO NOT HAVE ADEQUATE MAKE-UP
AIR) THE OUTSIDE AIR KIT MUST BE INSTALLED TO OBTAIN PROPER PERFORMANCE AND TO HELP PREVENT SPILLAGE
OF COMBUSTION GASES.

Step 12. Before Lighting the Fireplace
Before lighting the fireplace, be sure to do the following:
Remove all paperwork from underneath the fireplace.
Review safety warnings and cautions
LATCHES
(BOTH BOTTOM
AND TOP)
• Read the Safety and Warning Information section at
the beginning of this Installers Guide.
Double-check for gas leaks
• Before lighting the fireplace, double-check the unit for
possible gas leaks.
GLASS
ASSEMBLY
Double-check vent terminations and front grilles for
obstructions.
• Before lighting the fireplace, double-check the unit for
possible obstructions that could be blocking the vent terminations or the front grilles.
Figure 15. Glass Assembly
Double-check for faulty components
Glass Specifications: TEMPERED
• Any component that is found to be faulty MUST BE replaced with an approved component. Tampering with the
fireplace components is DANGEROUS and voids all warranties.
Heat-N-Glo fireplaces manufactured with tempered glass may
be installed in hazardous locations such as bathtub enclosures as defined by the CPSC. The tempered glass has
been tested and certified to the requirements of ANSI Z97.11984 and CPSC 16 CFR 1202. (Safety Glazing Certification
Council SGCC # 1595 and 1597. Architectural Testing, Inc.
Reports 02-31919.01 and 02-31917.01.)
A small amount of air will be in the gas supply lines. When
first lighting the fireplace, it will take a few minutes for the
lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is
complete, the fireplace will light and will operate normally.
fire-parts.com
This statement is in compliance with CPSC 16 CFR Section 1201.5 “Certification and labeling requirements” which
refers to 15 USC 2063 stating “…Such certificate shall accompany the product or shall otherwise be furnished to any
distributor or retailer to whom the product is delivered.”
Subsequent lightings of the fireplace will not require this
purging of air from the gas supply lines, unless the gas
valve has been turned to the OFF position, in which
case the air would have to be purged.
Some local building codes require the use of tempered glass
with permanent marking in such locations. Glass meeting
this requirement is available from the factory. Please contact your dealer or distributor to order.
NOTE: The fireplace should be run 3 to 4 hours on the initial
start-up. Turn it off and let it cool completely. Remove and
clean the glass. Replace the glass and run the fireplace for
an additional 8 hours. This will help to cure the chemicals
used in the paint and logs.
During this break-in period it is recommended that some
windows in the house be opened for air circulation. This will
help avoid setting off smoke detectors, and help eliminate
any odors associated with the fireplace’s initial burning.
Step 13. Lighting the Fireplace
You’ve reviewed all safety warnings, you’ve checked the
fireplace for gas leaks, you know the vent system is
unobstructed, and you’ve checked for faulty components.
Now you’re ready to light the fireplace.

Maintaining and Servicing Your Fireplace
Fireplace Maintenance
MAKE SURE THE FLAMES ARE STEADY—NOT
LIFTING OR FLOATING.
Although the frequency of your fireplace servicing and maintenance will depend on use and the type of installation, you
should have a qualified service technician perform an appliance check-up at the beginning of each heating season.
See the table below for specific guidelines regarding each
fireplace maintenance task.
IMPORTANT: TURN OFF THE GAS BEFORE SERVICING
YOUR FIREPLACE.
Replacing old ember material
Frequency: Once annually, during the checkup.
By: Qualified service technician.
Task: Brush away loose ember material near the burner.
Replace old ember material with new dime-size and shape
pieces of Golden Ember (GE-93) and Glowing Ember (050721). New ember material should be placed alternately on
top of the burner - a layer of Golden Ember, a layer of
Glowing Ember, and so on. Save the remaining ember
material and repeat this procedure at your next servicing.
For more information, see Placing Ember Material.
