Product Features
OPERATION
SAFETY DEVICE
This heater is clean burning. It requires no
outside venting. There is no heat loss out a
vent or up a chimney. Heat is generated by
both realistic flames and glowing coals. This
heater is designed for vent-free operation
with flue damper closed. It has been tested
and approved to ANSI Z21.11.2 standard for
unvented heaters. State and local codes in
some areas prohibit the use of vent-free heaters. This heater may also be operated as a
vented decorative (ANSI Z21.60) product by
opening the flue damper.
This heater has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensing (ODS) safety shut off system.
The ODS/pilot is a required feature for ventfree room heaters. The ODS/pilot shuts off the
heater if there is not enough fresh air.
PIEZO IGNITION SYSTEM
This heater has a piezo ignitor. This system requires no matches, batteries or other sources
to light heater.
Air For Combustion and Ventilation
WARNING: This heater shall
not be installed in a room or space
unless the required volume of
indoor combustion air is provided
by the method described in the
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54, the International
Fuel Gas Code, or applicable
local codes. Read the following
instructions to insure proper fresh
air for this and other fuel-burning
appliances in your home.
Today’s homes are built more energy efficient
than ever. New materials, increased insulation
and new construction methods help reduce
heat loss in homes. Home owners weather
strip and caulk around windows and doors
to keep the cold air out and the warm air in.
During heating months, home owners want
their homes as airtight as possible.
While it is good to make your home energy
efficient, your home needs to breathe. Fresh
air must enter your home. All fuel-burning appliances need fresh air for proper combustion
and ventilation.
Exhaust fans, fireplaces, clothes dryers and
fuel burning appliances draw air from the house
to operate. You must provide adequate fresh
air for these appliances. This will insure proper
venting of vented fuel-burning appliances.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE
VENTILATION
The following are excerpts from National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for
Combustion and Ventilation.
6
All spaces in homes fall into one of the three
following ventilation classifications:
1. Unusually Tight Construction
2. Unconfined Space
3. Confined Space
The information on pages 6 through 8 will help
you classify your space and provide adequate
ventilation.
Unusually Tight Construction
The air that leaks around doors and windows
may provide enough fresh air for combustion
and ventilation. However, in buildings of unusually tight construction, you must provide
additional fresh air.
Unusually tight construction is defined
as construction where:
a. Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a continuous
water vapor retarder with a rating of
one perm (6 x 10-11 kg per pa-sec-m2) or
less with openings gasketed or sealed
and
b. weather stripping has been added on
openable windows and doors and
c. caulking or sealants are applied to
areas such as joints around window
and door frames, between sole plates
and floors, between wall-ceiling joints,
between wall panels, at penetrations
for plumbing, electrical and gas lines
and at other openings.
If your home meets all of the three criteria
above, you must provide additional fresh air.
See Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 8.
If your home does not meet all of the three
criteria above, proceed to Determining FreshAir Flow For Appliance Location, page 7.

AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
Continued
Confined and Unconfined Space
The National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/
NFPA 54 defines a confined space as a space
whose volume is less than 50 cubic feet per
1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate
input rating of all appliances installed in that
space and an unconfined space as a space
whose volume is not less than 50 cubic feet
per 1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed
in that space. Rooms communicating directly
with the space in which the appliances are
installed*, through openings not furnished
with doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only if
there are odorless passageways or ventilation
grills between them.
DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW
FOR Appliance LOCATION
Determining if You Have a Confined or
Unconfined Space
Use this work sheet to determine if you have
a confined or unconfined space.
Space: Includes the room in which you will
install appliance plus any adjoining rooms
with doorless passageways or ventilation grills
between the rooms.
1. Determine the volume of the space (length
x width x height).
Length x Width x Height =_______ cu. ft.
(volume of space)
Example: Space size 20 ft. (length) x 16
ft. (width) x 8 ft. (ceiling height) = 2560 cu.
ft. (volume of space)
If additional ventilation to adjoining room
is supplied with grills or openings, add the
volume of these rooms to the total volume
of the space.
2. Multiply the space volume by 20 to determine the maximum Btu/Hr the space can
support.
____________(volume of space) x 20 =
(Maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)
Example: 2560 cu. ft. (volume of space) x
20 = 51,200 (maximum Btu/Hr the space
can support)
3. Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances in the space.
114744-01F
Vent-free appliance
________ Btu/Hr
Gas water appliance* ________ Btu/Hr
Gas furnace
________ Btu/Hr
Vented gas appliance ________ Btu/Hr
Gas fireplace logs
________ Btu/Hr
Other gas appliances*+________ Btu/Hr
Total
=________ Btu/Hr
* Do not include direct-vent gas appliances. Direct-vent draws combustion
air from the outdoors and vents to the
outdoors.
Example:
40,000 Btu/Hr
Gas water appliance ________
33,000 Btu/Hr
Vent-free appliance +________
73,000 Btu/Hr
Total
=________
4. Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space
can support with the actual amount of
Btu/Hr used.
_ __________Btu/Hr (maximum the space
can support)
_ __________Btu/Hr (actual amount of
Btu/Hr used)
Example: 51,200 Btu/Hr (maximum the
space can support)
73,000 Btu/Hr (actual amount of
Btu/Hr used)
The space in the previous example is a confined space because the actual Btu/Hr used
is more than the maximum Btu/Hr the space
can support. You must provide additional fresh
air. Your options are as follows:
A. Rework worksheet, adding the space
of an adjoining room. If the extra space
provides an unconfined space, remove
door to adjoining room or add ventilation
grills between rooms. See Ventilation Air
From Inside Building, page 8.
B. Vent room directly to the outdoors. See
Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 8.
C. Install a lower Btu/Hr appliance, if lower
Btu/Hr size makes room unconfined.
If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the
maximum Btu/Hr the space can support,
the space is an unconfined space. You will
need no additional fresh air ventilation.

OPERATION
Note: When used as a vented decorative,
appliance must be installed only in a solidfuel burning fireplace with a working flue and
constructed of noncombustible material.
If your heater is a non-thermostatically controlled model, you may use this heater as a
vented product. There are three reasons for
operating your heater in the vented mode.
1. The fireplace does not meet the clearance
to combustibles requirements for ventfree operation.
2. State or local codes do not permit ventfree operation.
3. You prefer vented operation.
If reasons number 1 or 2 above apply to you,
you must permanently open chimney flue
damper. You must install the damper clamp
accessory (to order, see Accessories, page

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 heater (see
Figure 14, page 14).
IMPORTANT: Install equipment shutoff valve
in an accessible location within 6 feet of the
appliance. 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 14, page
14. Locate sediment trap where it is within
reach for cleaning. Install in piping system
between fuel supply and heater. 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.
CHECKING GAS CONNECTIONS
WARNING: Test all gas piping
and connections for leaks after
installing or servicing. Correct
all leaks at once.
WARNING: Never use an

Inspecting Burner
Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame
patterns often.
PILOT FLAME PATTERN
Figure 23 shows a correct pilot flame pattern.
Figure 24 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 heater will shut down.
If pilot flame pattern is incorrect, as shown
in Figure 24
• turn heater off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 18)
• see Troubleshooting, page 22
Note: The pilot flame on natural gas units will
have a slight curve, but flame should be blue
and have no yellow or orange color.

The flames from the burner travel horizontally
through the log set and emerge at the middle
and rear of the set against the back logs.
The flames are blue off the burner and as
they progress through the log set, change to
a light yellow color, yellow decorative flames
are visible as the flames exit the log set.
The base of the log set and the underside of
the top logs glow red. Natural gas models will

Cleaning and Maintenance
WARNING: Turn off heater
and let cool before cleaning.
CAUTION: You must keep
control areas, burner and circulating air passageways of heater
clean. Inspect these areas of
heater before each use. Have
heater inspected yearly by a
qualified service person. Heater
may need more frequent cleaning due to excessive lint from
carpeting, pet hair, bedding
material, etc.
4. Check injector holder located at the end
of burner tube again. Remove any large
particles of dust, dirt, lint or pet hair with
a soft cloth or vacuum cleaner nozzle.
5. Blow air into the primary air opening on
the injector holder.
6. In case any large clumps of dust have now
been pushed into the burner repeat steps
3 and 4.
Clean pilot assembly also. A yellow tip on the
pilot flame indicates dust and dirt in the pilot
assembly. There is a small pilot air inlet hole
about 2" from where the pilot flame comes
out of the pilot assembly (see Figure 29).
With the unit off, lightly blow air through the
air inlet hole in the same direction as gas
flow. You may blow through a drinking straw
if compressed air is not available.
Ports/
Slots
WARNING: Failure to keep
the primary air openings of the
burner clean may result in sooting and property damage.
Injector
Holder
Burner Injector Holder and
Pilot Air Inlet Hole
The primary air inlet openings allow the
proper amount of air to mix with the gas. This
provides a clean burning flame. Keep these
holes clear of dust, dirt, lint and pet hair.
Clean these air inlet openings prior to each
heating season. Blocked air openings will
create soot. We recommend that you clean
the unit every three months during operation
and have heater inspected yearly by a qualified service person.
We also recommend that you keep the burner
tube and pilot assembly clean and free of dust
and dirt. To clean these parts we recommend
using compressed air no greater than 30 PSI.
Your local computer store, hardware store or
home center may carry compressed air in a
can. If using compressed air in a can, please
follow the directions on the can. If you don't
follow directions on the can, you could damage the pilot assembly.
1. Shut off unit, including pilot. Allow unit to
cool for at least thirty minutes.
2. Inspect burner, pilot and primary air inlet
opening on injector holder for dust and
dirt (see Figure 28).
3. Blow air through ports/slots and holes in
the burner.
