IMPORTANT INSTALLATION GUIDELINES
Proper Log Placement
Log placement is critical to proper burner performance. Logs must
be correctly positioned onto the burner. The photos in this manual
show the proper pinned position for logs on this set. Owners need to
be shown proper log placement and instructed not to move the logs.
Logs must fit firmly onto the burner when positioned as shown in the
photos. Malformed logs or logs with sloppy pin holes must be replaced.
Proper Placement of Rock Wool and Decorative Lava Rock
Rock wool can be added to burners for a glowing ember effect. Place
on the front portion of the burner only. The photos in this manual
show the proper placement of rock wool.
Never place decorative lava rock or small wood pieces on the burner.
Place them on the floor of the fireplace or firebox only.
Proper Primary Airflow into Burner
For proper burner operation and flame appearance, the flow of
primary air into the venturi tube, located on the rear of the burner,
must not be reduced. Air flow may be reduced if dirt, lint or other
obstructions build-up around or inside the venturi. Any obstruction
must be removed. Air flow into the venturi is also reduced if the gas
orifice isn’t centered in the venturi inlet or is not aligned with the
venturi. Correct any misalignment of the burner orifice by bending
the shutter cap holding the orifice to the inlet of the venturi tube.
Ceiling Fans, Portable Fans or Logs Installed Near Cold Air Returns
Ceiling fans or oscillating fans need to be monitored during the
operation of this vent-free burner. If air blows directly into the flame
causing it to impinge on the log set, or firebox, turn off or redirect the
fan. Ceiling fans may be reversed to eliminate flame impingement.
Upon installation, be aware of any cold-air returns or vents in the
proximity of the burner. Any draft created around a vent-free burner
can cause flame impingement and create soot.
WARNING
Do not allow fans to blow directly into the fireplace. Avoid
any drafts that alter burner flame patterns.
WARNING
Candles
Avoid the use of scented or decorative candles while the log set is
in operation. Candles produce a residue in the air that creates a
soot-like substance. Burning candles while the burner is operating
magnifies the problem. Candles in general produce soot. The
amount of time burned and the quantity of candles will determine
the amount of soot produced.
Make Owners Aware of Proper Log Set Operation
Properly installed and properly maintained log sets do not deposit
soot on the logs. If users see soot on a log, they should call for
service. Do not continue to operate the log set.
Sunken Fireplace
If installing this unit into a sunken fireplace, raise the floor to ensure
adequate airflow and guard against sooting. Raise fireplace floor
using a non-combustible material, which is secure.
Glass Doors
Keep glass doors open during all operations of the logset. The
opening of the glass door frame should be the dimension used for
the minimum front opening of the firebox.
Wood-Burning Fireplaces
The interior of the firebox and the chimney must be cleaned and free
of all creosote before installing a gas log set. Creosote will soften
when heated and can drop onto the logset causing odors and soot.
WARNING
Before installing in a solid-fuel burning fireplace, the chimney
flue and firebox must be cleaned of soot, creosote, ashes
and loose paint by a qualified chimney cleaner.
Initial Operation
Once the installation is complete and the logs and embers are
in place, light the burner and operate it on high for a minimum of
three continuous hours. This will burn off any foreign materials,
such as dust or paint overspray, that might cause odors during
normal operation. Open windows or doors as needed to allow
odors and excess heat to escape.
Do not use a blower insert, heat exchanger insert or other
accessory not approved for use with this heater.
