For the Homeowner
•
Do not allow Combustible Materials adjacent to or in contact
with the fireplace. Combustible materials include wood,
compressed paper, plant fibers, or other materials that will
burn. These materials are considered combustible even
when treated with fire-retardant chemicals.
•
Alert children and adults to the hazards of high surface
temperatures. Warn them to stay away to avoid burns and
clothing ignition.
•
Supervise children when they are in the same room as the
fireplace.
•
Do not place clothing or other flammable material on or near the
fireplace.
•
Any safety screen or guard removed for servicing the fireplace
must be replaced prior to operating the fireplace.
•
Keep fireplace area clear and free from combustible materials,
gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
•
Do not use this fireplace if any part has been under water.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the

any gas control which has been under water.
•
Operate fireplace with all glass panels and barrier screen in place.
•
Do not place embers (rock wool) in this fireplace.
•
Do not place lava rocks in this fireplace.
Television Considerations
Installing a television above a fireplace has become increasingly
popular; however, the area above any fireplace gets hot and most
TV manufacturers recommend against placing their products
near a heat source.
If a television is installed above this fireplace, Empire Comfort
Systems accepts no responsibility for damage or injuries. Follow
the television manufacturer’s installation instructions, including any
recommendations regarding proximity to heat sources.
If a TV is installed above the fireplace, turn off the fireplace and let it
cool completely before servicing or touching any buttons on the TV.
Maintenance and Service
Although the frequency of servicing and maintenance will depend
on use and the type of installation, a qualified service technician
should perform an appliance checkup at the beginning of each
heating season. Specific guidelines regarding each appliance
maintenance task are listed below.
Notice: It is normal for steel appliances to make expansion and/
or contraction noise during the start-up or cool-down cycle. Similar
noises are found with furnace heat exchangers and car engines.
Notice: During manufacture, components of this fireplace
insert are treated with oils, films or bonding agents. These are
not harmful, but may produce smoke and smells as they are
burned off during the initial operation of the fireplace insert. This
is normal. Open a window to ventilate the area.
Only glass approved for use by the manufacturer in fireplace may
be used for replacement. The glass replacement must be done
by a licensed or qualified service person.
