SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF Propane GAS
Propane is a flammable gas which can cause fires and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and colorless.
You may not know all the following safety precautions which
can protect both you and your family from an accident. Read
them carefully now, then review them point by point with
the members of your household. Someday when there may
not be a minute to lose, everyone’s safety will depend on
knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following
information, you feel you still need more information, please
contact your gas supplier.
Propane GAS WARNING ODOR
If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the Propane Gas.
That’s your signal to go into immediate action!
•
•
•
•
Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your
phone. Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.
Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do
that IMMEDIATELY.
Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.
Propane Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas
such as basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas
leak, keep out of basements and other low areas. Stay out
until firefighters declare them to be safe.
•
•
Use your neighbor’s phone and call a trained Propane Gas
service person and the fire department. Even though you may
not continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do
not re-enter the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for escaped
gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly
trained Propane Gas service people should repair the leak,
then check and relight the gas appliance for you.
no odor detected - odor fade
Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell
the odor of the chemical put into the gas. You must find out if
you can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease
your ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect
your sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other
odors in the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the
gas odor or their minds are on something else. Thinking about
smelling a gas odor can make it easier to smell.
The odorant in Propane Gas is colorless, and it can fade under
some circumstances. For example, if there is an underground
leak, the movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant.
Odorants in Propane Gas also are subject to oxidation.
This fading can occur if there is rust inside the storage tank or
in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into
walls, masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will
take some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.
Propane Gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity
could vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there
may be more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the
slightest gas odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious
leak. Immediately go into action as instructed earlier.
some points to remember
•
Learn to recognize the odor of Propane Gas. Your local
Propane Gas Dealer can give you a “Scratch and Sniff” pamphlet. Use it to find out what the propane odor smells like. If
you suspect that your Propane Gas has a weak or abnormal
odor, call your Propane Gas Dealer.
•
If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments to appliances on the Propane
Gas system. If you are qualified, consciously think about the
odor of Propane Gas prior to and while lighting pilot lights or
performing service or making adjustments.
•
Sometimes a basement or a closed-up house has a musty
smell that can cover up the Propane Gas odor. Do not try to
light pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an
area where the conditions are such that you may not detect
the odor if there has been a leak of Propane Gas.
•
Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of
new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should
be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders
are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks, or
reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed to set too
long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which have been
out of service for a time may develop internal rust which will
cause odor fade.
Page 4
If such conditions are suspected to exist, a periodic sniff test
of the gas is advisable. If you have any question about the
gas odor, call your Propane Gas Dealer. A periodic sniff
test of the Propane Gas is a good safety measure under
any condition.
•
If, at any time, you do not smell the Propane Gas odorant and
you think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the
same immediate action recommended above for the occasion
when you do detect the odorized Propane Gas.
•
If you experience a complete “gas out,” (the container is under no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately.
If the container valve is left on, the container may draw in
some air through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this
occurs, some new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is
left open, then treat the container as a new tank. Always be
sure your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off
at the container before it goes completely empty or having it
refilled before it is completely empty.

NOTICE: Never use plastic pipe. Check to confirm whether your
local codes allow copper tubing or galvanized.
NOTICE: Since some municipalities have additional local codes, it is
always best to consult your local authority and installation code.
The use of the following gas connectors is recommended:
—
ANS Z21.24 Appliance Connectors of Corrugated Metal Tubing
and Fittings.
— ANS Z21.45 Assembled Flexible Appliance Connectors of Other
Than All-Metal Construction
The above connectors may be used if acceptable by the authority
having jurisdiction. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires
that a flexible appliance connector cannot exceed three feet in length.
Installing the Main Gas Shut-Off
Each appliance should have its own manual gas shut-off.
A manual main gas shut-off should be located in the vicinity of the
unit. Where none exists, or where its size or location is not adequate,
contact your local authorized installer for installation or relocation.
Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant
to the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be
checked for leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap
solution watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if
unexposed, a pressure test should be made.
Never use an exposed flame to check for leaks. Appliance must
be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe
capped or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with
appliance connected; control valve will sustain damage!
NOTICE: The millivolt gas controls are equipped with a captured
screw type pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to
provide a 1/8" test point up stream of the control.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings.
The appliance and it’s individual shut off valve must be disconnected
from supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system
at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system
by closing its individual manual shut off valve during any pressure
testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to
or less than 1/2 psig (3.5kPa).
Attention! If one of the procedures results in pressures in excess of
1/2 psig (14" w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the fireplace gas valve, it will result
in a hazardous condition.
Checking Manifold Pressures
Both Propane and Natural Gas valves have a built-in pressure
regulator in the gas valve. Natural Gas models will have a manifold
pressure of approximately 3.5" w.c. (.871kPa) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 4.5" w.c.
(1.120kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
14.0" w.c. (3.484kPa). Propane Gas models will have a manifold
pressure approximately 10.0" w.c. (2.49kPa) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 10.8" w.c.
(2.68kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
14.0" w.c. (3.484kPa).

INSTALLATION
To begin, remove the glass door by releasing the 2 spring latches
at the top, and 2 spring latches at the bottom of the door frame.
Check to make sure there is no hidden damage to the unit. Take
a moment to plan out the gas, venting and electrical route. It is
best to start with the gas line first, followed by the vent system and
electrical supply requirements.
4.
Attention: If installing the optional FBB8 Blower Kit, it is recommended that it be installed in the fireplace before completing installation of the fireplace.
This fireplace requires no hearth extension. Combustible material
on the floor may be installed up to the fireplace.
Install the fireplace without the Surround panels attached and
make all gas, venting and electrical connections.
To complete the installation, install the Surround panel assembly.
Refer to the instructions included with the surround panel kit to
install properly.
Framing and Finishing
1. Choose unit location.
2. Frame out opening for fireplace as shown in Figures 2
through 5 and install finished wall surface over framing prior
to setting fireplace into opening and securing unit.
3. The fireplace should be installed on a metal or wood panel
extending the full width and depth of the appliance. The vertical dimensions in Figure 2 must be adjusted when a metal or
wood panel is placed beneath the appliance.
5.
6.
Install the side Framing brackets (1 per side) using the pilot holes provided behind the side flanges on the fireplace
outer wrap. Two setback locations are provided for locating
the framing brackets depending on which decorative surround
is to be installed. See Figures 9a and 9b. The pilot holes in
the forward position should be used if installing the fireplace
after the finished wall surface is present. The rearward hole
position should be used to install the fireplace directly to the
framed opening, prior to installing the finish wall surface.
The framing bracket locations are based on using 1/2” thick surface finishing materials over the framing. See Figure 9.
Note: If installing the framing brackets over the finished face wall
surface, be sure you leave access for installing the venting components at the sides or rear of the framed out structure.
Note: Use Figure 9a to locate the nailing flanges if installing a
DS(25,33)66BL surround accessory. Use Figure 9b to locate
the nailing flanges if installing a DF(25,33)M4 series surround
accessory.
Secure unit to wall opening with common screw type fasteners. See Figures 5 and 9.
Maintain combustible clearances as shown by Figures 2

Prior to installing the Fireplace, hand bend the two (2) Top
Framing Spacers into triangles as shown in Figure 10. To attach the outer leg of the standoffs, remove one (1) screw from
the front of the outer top flange of the fireplace, then re-instal
the same screw through the tab of the top standoff spacers
into the outer top to secure. See Figure 10.
Note: A combustible header may rest on top of the top standoff spacers. Screws may be installed through the top of the
standoff spacers and into the header to add stability of the
spacer if desired.
8. Non-combustible headers may be used above the fireplace
to maintain structural integrity, providing sufficient backing for
non-combustible finishing materials.
9. Because of the close proximity of the vent system to the header framing, it is recommended that a combustible header be
turned upright to provide the 1” minimum clearance required
to vent pipe. See page 7, Figure 2.
10. The finished wall surface materials must be non-combustible
for a distance of at least 12” above the top of the fireplace
outer cabinet.
11. It is recommended that the Junction Box be installed and
properly wired whether or not the optional blower accessory
is installed. Caution: Wiring must be performed by a qualified
electrician.

Installing the Vent System
Vent System Installation Precautions
Before starting installation of vent kits, the installer should read
these instructions and the Vent Kit Instructions to ensure that a
proper vent installation is completed. Consult your local Building
Codes before beginning the installation.
WARNING
This gas fireplace and vent assembly must be vented directly
to the outside and must never be attached to a chimney
serving a separate solid fuel burning appliance. Each gas
appliance must use a separate vent system. Common vent
systems are prohibited.
Vertical Venting
The inlet and exhaust vent pipes must be connected to the
proper collars on the unit and to the termination cap or the unit
will not operate.
WARNING
Major U.S. building codes specify minimum chimney and/or
vent height above the roof top. These minimum heights are
necessary in the interest of safety. See Figures 13 and 14 for
minimum heights, provided the termination cap is at least 2
feet from a vertical wall and 2 feet below a horizontal overhang.
Note: This also pertains to vertical vent systems installed on the
outside of the building.
Connecting the Vent Pipe
CAUTION
Sharp edges. Always use gloves when installing.

VERTICAL TERMINATION
Determining Minimum Vent Height Above the Roof.
WARNING
Major U.S. building codes specify minimum chimney and/or
vent height above the roof top. These minimum heights are
necessary in the interest of safety. These specifications are
summarized in Figure 13.
Vertical Through the Roof Applications
The Gas Fireplace has been approved for:
a) Vertical installations up to 40 feet in height (bottom of fireplace
to cap).
b) Two sets of 45-degree elbow offsets (bends in flexvent) within
the vertical installation. From 0 to a maximum of 8 ft. of vent
pipe can be used between elbows.
c) Wall straps must be used to support offset pipe every 4'.
This application will require that you first determine the roof pitch
and use the appropriate venting components.

General Maintenance
Conduct an inspection of the venting system semi-annually.
Recommended areas to inspect are as follows:
1. Check areas of the venting system which are exposed to the
elements for corrosion. These will appear as rust spots or
streaks and, in extreme cases, holes. These components should
immediately be replaced.
2. Remove the cap and shine a flashlight down the vent. Remove
any bird nests or other foreign material.
3. Check for evidence of excessive condensate, such as water
droplets forming in the flex venting and subsequently dripping
out at joints or seams. Condensate can cause corrosion of caps,
pipe and fittings. It may be caused by having excessive lateral
runs, or having exterior portions of the system exposed to cold
weather.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe sections or fittings have been
disturbed and, consequently, loosened. Also, check mechanical
supports, such as wall straps or plumbers’ tape for rigidity.
Figure 15
Note that for steep roof pitches, the vent height must be increased.
In high wind conditions, nearby trees, adjoining roof lines, steep
pitched roofs, and other similar factors can result in poor draft, or
down-drafting. In these cases, increasing the vent height may solve
this problem.

EXAMPLE A:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is 35 feet,
the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not exceed
6.5 feet.
EXAMPLE B:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is
6.8 feet, the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not
exceed 14.5 feet.
Special Note: For each 45-degree elbow installed in
the horizontal run, the length of the horizontal run MUST
be reduced by 18" (457 mm). This does not apply if the 45
degree elbows are installed on the vertical part of the vent
system. Reduce 3' for every 90° elbow.
Example: According to the chart the maximum horizontal
vent length is 20' and if two 45-degree elbows are required
in the horizontal vent it must be reduced to 17'.
The maximum number of 45-degree elbows permitted per
side wall installation is two (2). These elbows can be installed
in either the vertical or horizontal run.

Positioning the Fireplace
Determine the exact position of the appliance so the direct vent
termination will be centered (if possible) between two (2) studs. This
will avoid any extra framing. All vent kit pipes should be assembled
on the unit after the unit is secured into the final position.
Cutting the Hole
After the fireplace has been positioned in its permanent location,
the hole through the exterior wall of the house can be cut. This hole
must be 11" (279mm) high x 10" (254mm) wide with its center line
determined by the amount of vertical rise and horizontal run of the
termination. See Figure 21. When locating the hole it must be noted
that the bottom of the cap must be 12" (305mm) above the ground
level, and top of the cap must be no less than 18" (457mm) below
a combustible projection, and no closer than 9" (229mm) to any
wall running parallel to vent termination. See Figures 27 and 28.
Note: A minimum 2’ vertical rise is required off the top of the
fireplace with all acceptable vent systems.

Vertical Sidewall Installations
Important! Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible materials is three (3") (76 mm) on top, and (1") (25 mm) on bottom
and sides.
Important! When vent termination exits through foundation less than 20" below siding outcrop, the vent pipe must extend outward so that
the horizontal vent terminal is located flush to, or beyond the outcrop siding.
Information on Various Venting Routes and Components
Important: It is always best to locate the fireplace in such a way that minimizes the number of offsets and horizontal vent length.
Since it is very important that the venting system maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust, certain
limitations as to vent configurations apply and must be strictly adhered to.
The graph showing the relationship between vertical and horizontal side wall venting will help to determine the various vent lengths
allowable.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace to the face of the outer wall.
The maximum horizontal vent run is 20 feet (6.10 m) when the vertical vent rise is 8 feet (2.44 m). See Figure 17.
Venting terminals shall not be recessed into wall or siding.

Installing Firestops
Firestops are required for safety whenever the vent system passes
through an interior wall, an exterior wall, or a ceiling. These firestops
act as a firebreak heat shield and as a means to insure that minimum
clearances are maintained to the vent system.
Horizontal Firestops - See Figure 31
Horizontal runs in the vent system which pass through either interior
or exterior walls, require the use of wall firestops on both sides of
the wall through which the vent passes.
Position the firestops on both sides of the framed hole, previously
cut. Refer to Figures 32 to 34 on page 25 for sizing information.
Secure firestop with nails or screws. The heat shields of the firestops
MUST BE placed towards the top of the hole. Continue the vent
run through the firestops.
30369-19-0719
Page 23
FRAMING AND FINISHING (CONT'D)
Vertical Firestops - See Figures 32, 33 and 34
Vertical runs of this system which pass through ceilings require the
use of ONE (1) ceiling firestop at the hole in each ceiling through
which the vent passes.
Position a plumb bob directly over the center of the vertical vent
component and mark the ceiling to establish the center point of the
vent. Drill a hole or drive a nail through this center point and check
the floor above for any obstructions such as wiring or plumbing
runs. Reposition the appliance and vent system, if necessary, to
accommodate ceiling joists and/or obstructions.
Cut a 10 inch x 10 inch hole through the ceiling, using the center
point previously marked. Frame the hole with framing lumber the
same size as the ceiling joists. See Figure 32. If the area above the
ceiling is NOT an attic, position and secure the ceiling firestop on
the ceiling side of the previously cut and framed hole. See Figure
33. If the area above the ceiling is an attic, position and secure the
firestop on top of the previously framed hole. See Figure 34.
NOTE: Remove insulation from the framed area in the attic before
installing the firestop and/or vent pipes.

HORIZONTAL TERMINATION
NOTE: Termination cap should pass through the wall firestop from
the exterior of the building. Adjust the termination cap to its final
exterior position on the building.
WARNING
Termination cap must be positioned so that arrow is pointing up.
Attach the termination cap with the four wood screws provided.
Before attachment of the termination, run a bead of silicone sealant
rated above 250°F on its outside edge too, so as to make a seal
to the exterior wall.
NOTE: Wood screws can and should be replaced with appropriate
fasteners for use on stucco, brick, concrete or other types of siding.
NOTICE: If exterior walls are finished with vinyl siding (or materials
that could become discolored or warp), it is necessary to install a
vinyl siding standoff.
The vinyl siding standoff will be installed between the vent termination
and the exterior wall. See Figure 35. This horizontal vent termination
bolts onto the flat portion of the vinyl siding standoff, so an air space
will exist between the wall and the termination cap.

VERTICAL TERMINATION
Locate and mark the center point of the vent pipe using a nail on
the underside of the roof. Drive the nail through the center point.
Mark the outline of the roof hole around this center point.
NOTE: Size of the roof hole dimensions depend on the pitch of the
roof. There must be a 1 inch clearance (25 mm) to the vertical pipe
sections. This clearance is to all combustible material.
Cover the opening of the vent pipe and cut and frame the roof hole.
Use framing lumber the same size as the roof rafters and install the
frame securely. Flashing anchored to frame must withstand high
winds. The storm collar is placed over this joint to make a water-tight
seal. Non-hardening sealant should be used to completely seal this
flashing installation.
Determining Minimum Vent Height Above the Roof.
WARNING
Major U.S. building codes specify minimum chimney and/or
vent height above the roof top. These minimum heights are
necessary in the interest of safety. These specifications are
summarized in Figure 36.

3. Check for evidence of excessive condensate, such as water
droplets forming in the inner liner and subsequently dripping
out at joints. Condensate can cause corrosion of caps, pipe and
fittings. It may be caused by having excessive lateral runs, too
many elbows and exterior portions of the system being exposed
to cold weather.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe sections or fittings have been
disturbed and, consequently, loosened. Also, check mechanical
supports, such as wall straps or plumbers’ tape for rigidity.
Venting terminal shall not be recessed into a wall or siding.
A removable panel or other means must be provided in the enclosure
for visual inspection of the flue connection.
NOTE: This also pertains to vertical vent systems installed on the
outside of the building.
Slide the vertical vent cap over the ends of the vent pipe and secure.
See Figure 37.
Installing the Vent System in a Chase

Note that for steep roof pitches, the vent height must be increased.
In high wind conditions, nearby trees, adjoining roof lines, steep
pitched roofs, and other similar factors can result in poor draft, or
down-drafting. In these cases, increasing the vent height may solve
this problem.
General Maintenance
Conduct an inspection of the venting system semi-annually.
Recommended areas to inspect are as follows:
1. Check areas of the venting system which are exposed to the
elements for corrosion. These will appear as rust spots or
streaks and, in extreme cases, holes. These components should
immediately be replaced.
2. Remove the cap and shine a flashlight down the vent. Remove
any bird nests or other foreign material.
Page 26
Figure 37
NOTICE: Treatment of firestop spacers and construction of the
chase may vary with the type of building. These instructions are not
substitutes for the requirements of local building codes. Therefore,
your local building codes must be checked to determine the
requirements for these steps.
NOTE: When installing this vent system in a chase, it is always good
building practice to insulate the chase as you would the outside
walls of your home. This is especially important for cold climate
installations. Upon completion of building your chase framing,
install the vent system by following the instructions in this manual.
Remember to build the chase large enough so that minimum
clearance of combustible materials (including insulation) to the vent
system are maintained.

VERTICAL TERMINATION (CONT'D)
Installation of Vertical Inlet Baffle
The vertical inlet baffle is to be used only in a completely vertical vent
installation. The vertical inlet baffle can be used when the vertical
vent rise is between 10 feet and 40 feet. To maintain the yellow
flame in the main burner, purchase Vertical Inlet baffle, DVF-139
from your Empire Comfort Systems, Inc. distributor or dealer for
Simpson Duravent only.
In a vertical vent rise the flame on the main burner can be reduced
due to the drawing action from the flue exhaust pipe and the air inlet
pipe. A decrease in the height or the appearance of the yellow flame
may occur when the vertical vent rise is between 10 feet and 40 feet.
To enhance the yellow flame on the main burner, the vertical inlet
baffle can be attached to the direct vent high wind vertical top.
Please use the following steps to install the vertical inlet baffle.
1. Place the vertical inlet baffle over the exterior of the air inlet
openings on the direct vent high wind vertical top.
2. There are three sections of air openings on the exterior of the
air inlet pipe.
To achieve the maximum amount of yellow flame the vertical
inlet baffle will cover-up three sections of air openings.
To achieve the minimum amount of yellow flame the vertical inlet
baffle will cover-up one section of air openings.
3. Attach vertical inlet baffle to the direct vent high wind vertical top
with (2) 3/8" hex-head screws provided with vertical inlet baffle.
4. Installation of vertical inlet baffle is completed.
Reassembly and Resealing Gas Accumulation Relief System
Glass Frame Assembly and Combustion Chamber
Whenever the glass frame assembly is pivoted open by a delayed
ignition in the main burner, the glass frame assembly gaskets and
combustion chamber must be examined by a qualified service person
for damage. All damaged gaskets on the glass frame assembly and
combustion chamber must be replaced by a qualified service person.
If damage occurs to the combustion chamber, it must be replaced
by a qualified service person. Contact Empire Comfort Systems,
Inc. for replacement parts.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
750 Millivolt System
The standing pilot (750 millivolt system) is a continuous burning pilot.
The pilot remains ON even when the main burner is OFF.
The (owner) should carefully read and follow these operating
instructions at all times. Lower the door assembly to view the gas
controls for the fireplace.
When you ignite the pilot, the thermopile produces millivolts (electrical
current) which energizes the magnet in the gas valve. After 30
seconds to 1 minute time period you can release the gas control
knob and the pilot will stay ON. Allow your pilot flame to operate an
additional one (1) to two (2) minutes before you turn the gas control
knob from the PILOT position to the ON position. This time period
allows the millivolts (electrical current) to build-up to a sufficient
level allowing the gas control to operate properly.
Initial Lighting
Upon completing the gas line or turning the gas valve on after it has
been in the “OFF” position, a small amount of air will be in the 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 operate satisfactorily.
1. Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for standing
pilot controls found in this manual and on labels found in control
compartment behind the door assembly.
WARNING
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such purging
if the gas valve is not turned to “OFF.”
Pilot Flame - See Figure 49
The thermopile/thermocouple (standing pilot) tips should be covered
with flame.
During the initial purging and subsequent lightings, never
allow the gas valve control knob to remain depressed in the
“pilot” position without pushing the piezo ignitor button at
least once every second.
2. During the operating season, leave the control valve knob in the
“ON” position. This will allow the pilot flame to remain lit. Turn
the burner flame on or off with the fireplace Remote/OFF/ON
switch, wall switch or remote controls.
NOTICE: The gas control valve allows you to increase or decrease
the height of the main burner flame. The control valve has a pressure
regulator with a knob as shown in Figure 48. Rotate the knob
clockwise to “HI” to increase the flame height and counterclockwise
to “LO” to decrease the flame height.
3. When the operating season is over, turn the Remote/OFF/ON
switch to “OFF” and the control valve to “OFF”. The system,
including the pilot light, will be shut down.

IPI ELECTRONIC SYSTEM OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
5.25 VDC ELECTRONIC CONTROL VALVE
The electronic control valve system includes the ability to switch
the pilot from a standing pilot mode to an intermittent pilot mode.
•
IPI Mode - In the Intermittent Pilot mode, when the unit is
turned ON, it will cause spark to the pilot, light the pilot,
then allow the burner to light. When the unit is turned to
OFF, both the burner and pilot will be OFF.
•
CPI Mode - In the Continuous Pilot mode, the pilot remains ON continuously even when the burner is turned
OFF.
Note: A small pilot selector switch is located on the module tray
that is used to switch from IPI (left position) to the CPI (right position). See Figure 50.
When the unit is turned to ON, the electrical current will energize
a spark to the pilot igniter. Once the pilot sensor heats up (after a
few seconds), the valve will be energized, allowing gas to flow to
the burner.
1.
2.
3.
Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for Intermittent Pilot controls found in this manual, and on labels
found in the control compartment located in the lower cavity
of the appliance.
During the operating season (or in power outage periods), it is
recommended that the pilot remain in the CPI (standing pilot
mode) to reduce cold start issues, and/or conserve battery
backup power during a power outage.
The gas valve has inlet and outlet pressure taps as shown in
Figure 50. Refer to page 9 for gas pressure requirements.
Note: The gas control has a manual HI/LO flame adjustment
knob (regulator) that allows you to increase or decrease the height
of the burner flame. See Figure 50. Rotate the HI/LO knob counterclockwise to “HI” to increase the flame height, and clockwise to
“LO” to decrease the flame height.
OPTIONAL REMOTE CONTROLS
Optional remote controls are available for use with this appliance.
It is recommended that the remote receiver be placed either in a
wall outlet box with extended wiring, on the fireplace hearth, behind the left side surround panel, or in the control compartment

MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE (CONT'D)
Note: It is normal for steel appliances to make expansion
and/or contraction noise as they heat up or cool-down.
Similar noises are found with your furnace heat exchanger
or car engine.
It is normal for your gas fireplace to give off some odor the
first time it is burned. This is due to the curing of the paint
and any oil from the manufacturing process.
If odor becomes offensive, open windows.
Burn the fireplace for at least six hours the first time you use it.
If the optional fan kit has been installed, place fan in the “OFF”
position during this time.
IMPORTANT: Turn off the gas before servicing appliance. Have a
qualified service person perform these check-ups at the beginning
of each heating season.
• Clean Burner and Control Compartment
Keep the control compartment, logs, and burner areas surrounding
the logs clean by vacuuming or brushing at least twice a year.
Glass - General Information
WARNING
Do not operate appliance with the glass front removed,
cracked, or broken.
Use only glass approved for use by the fireplace manufacturer for
replacement. Glass replacement should be done by a licensed or

Keep the area around the fireplace clean and free of debris.
This fireplace requires an unimpeded flow of air to circulate
warm air. Do not place objects on or around the fireplace that
may restrict air flow.
•
Keep the area around the fireplace free of combustible
materials – including drapery, upholstered furniture, paper,
boxes, and clothing. Never hang stockings or cards above
the fireplace.
•
Never operate the fireplace with the glass front removed or
damaged. Any part removed for cleaning or servicing must
be replaced prior to operating the fireplace.
•
The fireplace gets hot during operation and may remain hot
for an hour after use. When operated by thermostat, the
fireplace will turn on and off automatically.
•
This fireplace may become hot enough to burn skin and
ignite clothing after prolonged contact. To prevent injury, alert
people in your home – especially children – to the hazards of
high surface temperatures and warn them to stay away from
the fireplace.
•
Supervise children whenever the fireplace is hot. Young
children and others may be susceptible to accidental
contract burns. Have your dealer install a physical barrier if
there are at-risk individuals in your home. To restrict access
to a fireplace or stove, install an adjustable safety gate to
keep toddlers, young children, and other at-risk individuals
out of the room and away from hot surfaces.
•
The vent cap, located on the outside of your home, will also
become very hot. Alert everyone, adults and children, to stay
clear and avoid touching the vent cap. Keep the area around
the vent cap clear of combustibles, including shrubs and trees.
•
Do not use this fireplace if any part has been underwater.
Have a qualified technician inspect the fireplace and replace
any part that has been underwater. In the event of a natural
disaster (tornado, earthquake, fire, etc.) have a qualified
technician inspect the fireplace for damage or potential gas
leaks. Repair or replace any damaged components before
operating this fireplace.
•
Never burn solid fuels such as wood, coal, paper or
cardboard in this fireplace.
Page 46
Annual Inspection
•
Have the fireplace inspected annually before use.
•
More frequent inspection and cleaning may be required if the
fireplace is installed in an area exposed to pet hair or dust,
or to excessive lint from new carpeting or bedding materials.
During the annual checkup, the technician will:
•
Inspect the pilot (flame safety system) and burner(s) for
proper operation and replace any damaged parts.
•
Check the glass and gasket for proper seal.
•
Vacuum and clean any foreign debris in the firebox that is
not supposed to be there.
•
Clean Glass with a suitable fireplace glass cleaner. Abrasive
cleaners must not be used. Be careful not to scratch the
glass when cleaning.
•
Check the barrier screen for fit and structural integrity.
See Figure 52.
•
Check all latches or other door retention components for
proper operation, tension, and relief mechanisms are free
from obstructions. See Figure 51.
•
Inspect the log set (if applicable) and decorative media (if
applicable) for debris or damage.
•
Freshen up the glowing embers if applicable.
•
Replace batteries in the remote transmitter and receiver if
applicable.
•
Inspect the venting and vent termination cap for damage,
corrosion, sooting, or obstruction and correct if present.
•
In addition, clean and inspect the fireplace following any
remodeling work in your home.
