noncombustible material.
CAUTION: Do not pick up appliance assembly by logs. This
could damage unit. Only handle
assembly by grate.
IMPORTANT: Make sure appliance is level. If
unit is not level it will not work properly.
Center the appliance in the fireplace. Make certain
the grate front feet sit inside the front edge of
the fireplace and that there is adequate clearance
around the appliance for access and operation.
Note: The installation of appliances designed for
manufactured home (U.S. only) or mobile home
installation must conform with the standard CAN/
CSA Z240, Mobile Housing, in Canada, or with
the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety
Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280, in the United
States, or when such a standard is not applicable,
ANSI/NCSBCSA225.1/NFPA501A, Manufactured
Home Installations Standard.
CONNECTING TO GAS SUPPLY
WARNING: A qualified service
person must connect heater to gas
supply. Follow all local codes.
WARNING: This appliance
requires a 3/8" NPT (National Pipe
Thread) inlet connection to the
control valve.
114924-01D
CAUTION: Never connect
propane/LP unit directly to the
propane/LP supply. This unit requires an external regulator (not
supplied). Install the external
regulator between the unit and
the propane/LP supply.
WARNING: Never connect natural gas fireplace to private (non-utility) gas wells. This gas is commonly
known as wellhead gas.
Installation Items Needed
Before installing heater, make sure you have the
items listed below.
• approved flexible gas hose and fittings (supplied
with appliance -if allowed by local codes)
• external regulator (propane/LP models only)
• piping (check local codes)
• sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
• equipment shutoff valve*
• test gauge connection*
• sediment trap
• tee joint
• pipe wrench
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve
with 1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to
test gauge connection. Purchase the optional CSA
design-certified equipment shutoff valve from your
dealer. See Accessories, page 17.
For propane/LP units, the installer must supply
an external regulator. The external regulator will
reduce incoming gas pressure. You must reduce
incoming gas pressure to between 11 and 14 inches
of water. If you do not reduce incoming gas pressure, control valve damage could occur. Install
external regulator with the vent pointing down as
shown in Figure 6. Pointing the vent down protects
it from freezing rain or sleet.

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 heater. If pipe is too small,
undue loss of volume will occur.
Installation must include an equipment shutoff
valve, union and plugged 1/8" NPT tap. Locate NPT
tap within reach for test gauge hook up. NPT tap
must be upstream from log set (see Figure 7).
IMPORTANT: Install equipment shutoff valve in an
accessible location. The equipment shutoff valve is for
turning on or shutting off the gas to the appliance.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT
threads. This will prevent excess sealant from
going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could result
in clogged heater valves.
WARNING: Use pipe joint
sealant that is resistant to liquid
petroleum (LP) gas.
We recommend that you install a sediment trap in
supply line as shown in Figure 7. Locate sediment
trap where it is within reach for cleaning. Install in
piping system between fuel supply and appliance.
Locate sediment trap where trapped matter is not
likely to freeze. A sediment trap traps moisture and
contaminants. This keeps them from going into
heater controls. If sediment trap is not installed or
is installed wrong, heater may not run properly.
CAUTION: Avoid damage to
gas control. Hold gas control
with wrench when connecting it
to gas piping and/or fittings.

Inspecting Burners
Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame patterns often.
Pilot flame pattern
You can view the pilot light through the pilot viewing hole on the pilot bracket. This is located under
the front grate bar on the right side of the log set.
Figure 15 shows a correct pilot flame pattern.
Figure 16 shows an incorrect pilot flame pattern.
The incorrect pilot flame is not touching the thermocouple. This will cause the thermocouple to
cool. When the thermocouple cools, the appliance
will shut down.
If pilot flame pattern is incorrect, as shown in
Figure 16
• turn appliance off (see To Turn Off Gas to
Appliance, page 11)
• see Troubleshooting, page 13
Note: The pilot flame on natural gas units will
have a slight curve but flames should be blue and
have no yellow or orange color.
If burner flame pattern is incorrect, as shown in
Figure 18.
• turn appliance off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 11 )
• see Troubleshooting, page 13

CAUTION: You must keep
control areas, burners and circulating air passageways of fireplace clean. Inspect these areas
of fireplace before each use. Have
fireplace and chimney (if applicable) inspected yearly by a qualified service person. Fireplace may
need more frequent cleaning due
to excessive lint from carpeting,
bedding material, etc.
Only limited cleaning will be required under normal use of this appliance. Dust the front grate and
top of receiver/valve. Do not use cleaning fluids to
clean logs or any other part of the appliance.
If, after a period of use, the flames start to exhibit
unusual shapes and behavior or the burner fails to
ignite smoothly, then the burner holes may require
some cleaning. If this happens, we recommend
that you contact your nearest authorized service
technician to get the appliance serviced.
• Keep area around log set clean and clear of debris.
• Periodically inspect the air mixer and burner
tube for foreign matter blocking the air inlet
and flame holes.
• Once every year a qualified agency or certified
chimney sweep should examine and clean the
venting system of the fireplace.
