Installation Items Needed
Before installing log set, make sure you
have the items listed below.
• piping (check local codes)
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• manual shutoff valve
• adjustable (crescent) wrench or pliers
• sediment trap
• tee joint
• pipe wrench
CAUTION: Use only new,
black iron or steel pipe. Internally-tinned copper tubing may
be used in certain areas. Check
your local codes. Use pipe of 1/2"
diameter or greater to allow
proper gas volume to log set. If
pipe is too small, undue loss of
pressure will occur.

CHECK GAS TYPE
You must install this Remote Ready Valve/
Pilot Kit if your gas type is propane/LP.
For additional convenience and safety, this
Remote Ready Valve/Pilot Kit can be used
with natural gas. If you are unsure of the
proper application, call dealer where you
bought log set.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male
threads. This will prevent excess sealant
from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe
could result in a clogged burner orifice.
CAUTION: Use pipe joint sealant that is resistant to liquid petroleum (LP) gas.
Install sediment trap in supply line as shown
in Figure 2, page 3. Locate sediment trap
where it is within reach for cleaning. Locate
sediment trap where trapped matter is not
likely to freeze. A sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them
from going into log set controls. If sediment
trap is not installed or is installed wrong, log
set may not run properly.
If the fireplace does not have a gas supply
shut-off valve, one must be installed.

WARNING: Test all gas piping and connections for leaks
after installing or servicing. Correct all leaks at once.
WARNING: Never use an
open flame to check for a leak.
Apply a mixture of liquid soap
and water to all joints. Bubbles
forming show a leak. Correct all
leaks at once.
Pressure Testing Gas Supply
Piping System
Test Pressures In Excess Of 1/2 PSIG
1. Disconnect log set and its individual
manual shutoff valve from gas supply
piping system.
2. Cap off open end of gas pipe where
manual shutoff valve was connected.
3. Pressurize supply piping system by either
using compressed air or opening main gas
valve located on or near gas meter.
Approved Flexible Gas Hose
(if allowed by local codes)
Check all joints of gas supply piping
system. Apply mixture of liquid soap
and water to gas joints. Bubbles forming show a leak.
Correct all leaks at once.
Reconnect log set and manual shutoff
valve to gas supply. Check reconnected
fittings for leaks.
Test Pressures Equal To or Less Than
1/2 PSIG
1. Close manual shutoff valve (see Figure 3).
2. Pressurize supply piping system by either
using compressed air or opening main gas
valve located on or near gas meter.
3. Check all joints from gas meter to manual
shutoff valve (see Figure 3). Apply mixture of liquid soap and water to gas joints.
Bubbles forming show a leak.
4. Correct all leaks at once.

Remove burner inlet fitting from burner
manifold (see Figure 4).
Use 10 mm socket to remove the orifice
(see Figure 8). Replace with the proper
orifice for your log set. See Technical
Information Charts (Figure 1, page 2)
Thread the gas control valve onto the
burner inlet fitting (see Figure 4). Use
thread sealant on the male threads of
the burner inlet fitting. Hold the burner
inlet fitting with a wrench to prevent
overtightening the connection to the
burner. Make sure the control knob is
facing the front (see Figure 4).
Replace burner inlet fitting into burner
manifold (see Figure 4)
Attach the pilot gas line to the pilot outlet of the gas control valve and tighten.
Connect the thermocouple to the terminal block on the gas control valve.
See Figure 5. Do not overtighten. If
using propane/LP gas, see Changing
Pilot Orifice, page 5.

propane/LP conversion.
Propane/LP Gas Conversion
To convert to propane/LP gas, the regulator
pressure must be reset also the burner inlet
fitting and pilot orifice must be replaced. The
propane/LP burner inlet fitting is supplied
with the orifice installed for a 24" log set. If
you have an 18" or 30" set, you must change
this orifice also.

Install the inlet fitting into the inlet
opening of the gas control valve (see
Figure 6). Use thread sealant on the
male pipe threads.
Place the burner pan assembly in the
center of the fireplace floor. Make sure
the front of pan faces forward.
Thread the gas supply adaptor to the
fireplace gas supply pipe. Adjust to
most convenient position.
Install the gas connector tube to the gas
supply adaptor. Carefully shape tube and
attach to gas inlet fitting (see Figure 6).
Be careful not to cause kinks in tube.
Test for leaks following instructions in
your hearth kit Owner’s Manual under
the section Testing Burner for Leaks.
Retighten and adjust the location of the
gas control as necessary. The gas control should be level, with the control
knob to the front.
Install cover to burner pan using screws
provided.
Install thermocouple, pilot, and piezo
ignitor cover onto valve cover as shown
in Figure 7. Use the provided screws.

Burner Inlet Fitting
1. Remove the burner inlet fitting from the
burner pan assembly. DO NOT remove
the orifice from this fitting. The propane/LP burner inlet fitting is included
in the hardware kit (see Figure 8).
2.
Be sure to use the correct orifice for
your appliance. The hardware kit included with this appliance contains
three orifices with a cone-like shape. If
you have an 18" set, the orifice for the
burner inlet fitting is red; for a 30" set,
it is black. If you have a 24" log set,
the orifice is orange.
3. For an 18" or 30" set, use a 10 mm
socket or nut driver to install the orifice
from the propane/LP burner inlet fitting.
Choose the correct orifice for your log
set size and install using thread sealant.
4. Using thread sealant (resistant to the
action of propane/LP gas) on larger end
of fitting, screw the burner inlet fitting
through hole and into burner manifold.
Tighten using a wrench.
5 . Follow steps 3 through 13 under Natural Gas Installation, pages 3 and 4.

The pilot is provided with a natural gas
orifice installed. For propane/LP gas you
must remove it and replace it with an propane/LP orifice. The hardware kit contains
an propane/LP orifice with a red stripe for
converting the pilot.
1. Gently loosen and remove the pilot
line connection from the bracket (see
Figure 12).
2. Replace the injector (see Figure 12)
with the propane/LP pilot injector with
the red stripe.
3. Replace and tighten the pilot line to the
bracket.
4. Continue with step 6 under Natural
Gas Installation, page 4.

Adjusting Regulator Pressure For
Propane/LP Conversion
1. Locate the pressure button on regulator tower of gas control valve.
2. Remove the pressure button from the
regulator tower (see Figure 10).
Gas Control Valve
If you are using the GHRC remote control
option, you must first connect the leads of
the receiver to the terminal block on the gas
control (see Figure 13).
1. Connect the leads to the male fast-on
terminals marked TH and TPTH.
2. Install a 9V battery (refer to the instructions included with the GHRC).
3. Install a 9V battery into the hand held
transmitter.
4. Insert the receiver into the simulated
log control cover, with the raised cylinder fitting into the hole in the cover.
5. The cover may be moved aside when
operation of the gas control is necessary.

When installing the GWMS2 remote wall
switch option, follow all instructions included with the accessory. You will need to
route the wiring away from the gas control
and log set in a way which prevents direct
radiant heat on the wires.
No Optional Accessories
If you choose no remote accessories at this
time, the provided jumper wire must be
installed to the terminal block on the gas
control. Connect the lead to the fast-on
terminals marked TH and TPTH.

• Do not touch any electric switch;
do not use any phone in your building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier
from a neighbor’s phone. Follow
the gas supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
C. Use only your hand to push in or turn
the gas control knob. Never use tools.
If the knob will not push in or turn
by hand, don’t try to repair it, call a
qualified service technician or gas
supplier. Force or attempted repair
may result in a fire or explosion.
D. Do not use this appliance if any part
has been under water. Immediately
call a qualified service technician to
