FIREBOX INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Any vent-free Gas Log Heater must be “For use with approved ANSI
Z21.11.2 unvented room heater.”
Follow and complete the installation instructions of the gas log set
and the requirements of this firebox.
Check all fittings for leaks before lighting the gas log set.
In planning the installation for the firebox, it is necessary to determine
where the unit is to be installed and whether optional accessories
are desired. Gas supply piping should also be planned at this time.
A gas shut-off must be in this line.
The firebox can be mounted on any of these surfaces:
1. A flat hard combustible or non-combustible surface.
2. A raised platform of combustible or non-combustible material.
3. Recessed into the floor as illustrated by Figure 4 (flush face),
and Figure 5 (louvered models).
4. Supported under all four corners of the firebox so that contact
is made on all four perimeter edges on the bottom of the unit
(Example: Four concrete masonry blocks).
If the firebox is installed directly on carpeting, tile or other combustible
material other than wood flooring, it should be installed on a metal
or wood panel extending the full width and depth of the unit.
At this point, you should have decided what components to include
in your installation, and where the firebox is to be located. If this
has not been done, stop and consult your dealer for assistance
with this planning.
Planning Your Installation
Please note that the optional VFA2 Fresh Air kit available for use
with the Vent Free Firebox must be installed at the time of the initial

(with the junction box removed), then plug up the power cord
before reinstalling the pre-wired junction box.
12. Once all connections are made electrically, it is recommended
that you test the blower fan control operation by turning on
power to the blower (Caution: 110 Volt). Then apply heat to
the fan control switch inside the firebox with a lighter or match
until blower is activated. Once blower is activated, check for
proper operation. Do not place hands near blower assembly
or other wiring while power is on.
13. Replace blower access plate.

switch. Blower will operate when the fireplace warms up, and will turn
off automatically when the firebox cools down.
