Installation Considerations - Fireplace
Installation Guidelines
When planning a fireplace installation, it’s necessary to
determine:
•
Gas supply piping (right side entrance).
•
Electrical supply requirements
(120V, 60Hz, 1 Amp) (right side entrance)
•
These models do not include the Accent Light assembly.
However, the Accent Light Kit may be purchased and
installed during or after fireplace installation. Instructions are
supplied with the Accent Light Kit.
•
Proper opening size of framing required for installation of
the fireplace. The framing of the fireplace will determine how
the fireplace finishing materials will be applied. Refer to the
installation information on pages 20 to 23.
The blower kit is easier to install at the time of fireplace
•
installations. See blower installation section on pages 8 to 10.
In planning the installation for the fireplace, determine where the
fireplace is to be installed and whether optional accessories are
desired. Gas supply piping should also be planned at this time.
The fireplace 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.
If the fireplace 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 fireplace.
The fireplace is designed to be installed in a zero-clearance
enclosure. This means that combustible materials must be
located at clearances specified or provided by standoffs or
spacers attached to the fireplace.
Combustible materials can come in contact with the nailing
flanges provided.

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 you install a television 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 you have a TV above your fireplace, turn off the fireplace and let it
cool completely before servicing or touching any buttons on the TV.

INSTALLATION
Note: Island and Room Divider installation is possible as long as
the horizontal portion of the vent system does not exceed 20 feet
with a minimum vertical run of 8 feet. See details in Venting Section.
When you install your Direct Vent Fireplace in Room divider or Flat
on wall corner positions, a minimum of 8 inches clearance must
be maintained from the perpendicular wall and the front opening
of the fireplace.
Note: When installing this fireplace against an exterior wall, insulate
to applicable insulation codes.

Vertical Sidewall Installations
Important! Minimum clearance between vent pipes and
combustible materials is 3 inch (76 mm) on top, and 1
inch(25 mm) on bottom and sides.
Important! When vent termination exits through foundation less
than 20 inch (508 mm) below siding outcrop, the vent pipe must
extend outward so that the horizontal vent termination 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.
Page 14
The graph showing the relationship between vertical and
horizontal side wall venting will help to determine the various vent

GAS SUPPLY
The gas pipeline can be brought in through the right side of the
fireplace. Consult the current National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1 CAN/CGA-B149 (.1 or .2) installation code.
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:
— ANSI Z21.24 Appliance Connectors of Corrugated Metal
Tubing and Fittings.
— ANSI 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

A gas valve and ground joint union should be installed in the gas
line upstream of the gas control to aid in servicing. It is required
by the National Fuel Gas Code that a drip leg be installed near the
gas inlet. See Figure 16. This should consist of a vertical length of
pipe tee connected into the gas line that is capped on the bottom
in which condensation and foreign particles may collect.
Installing a New Main Gas Shut-Off Valve
(Check Local Code)
Each fireplace should have its own manual gas shut-off valve.
A manual main gas shut-off valve should be located in the vicinity
of the fireplace. 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 epxosed flame to check for leaks. Fireplace
must be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve
and pipe capped or plugged for pressure test. Never
pressure test with fireplace connected; control valve will
sustain damage!
NOTICE: The gas control is equipped with a captured screw type
pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to provide a 1/8
inch test point up stream of the control. See Figure 17.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings.
The fireplace 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 (3.5 kPa).
The fireplace 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 (3.5 kPa).
Attention! If one of the procedures results in pressures in excess
of 1/2 psig (14-in w.c.) (3.5  kPa) on the fireplace gas valve, it will
result in a hazardous condition.
Page 16
40375-1-1019
GAS SUPPLY (CONT’D)
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-in w.c. (.871 kPa) at the
valve outlet with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum
of 4.5-in w.c. (1.120 kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to
a maximum of 14.0-in w.c. (3.484 kPa). Propane Gas models will
have a manifold pressure approximately 10.0-in w.c. (2.49 kPa)
at the valve outlet with the inlet pressure to the valve from a
minimum of 10.8-in w.c. (2.68 kPa) for the purpose of input
adjustment to a maximum of 14.0-in w.c. (3.484 kPa).
Gas Line Connection
Remove the access panel from the right side of the fireplace
shown in Figure 18 to access the gas valve, gas flex line,
junction box, and system wiring.
Attach the gas flex line to the pre-installed gas line. Refer to the
Gas Supply section in this manual for details on the installation
requirements for the gas supply line.

INSTALLATION
Framing
This fireplace can be elevated off the floor provided that the
fireplace is properly supported by framing materials and the
ceiling clearances are maintained.
Fireplace framing can be built before or after the fireplace is set
in place. Framing should be positioned to accommodate wall
covering and fireplace facing material. The fireplace framing
should be constructed of 2 x 4 lumber. Refer to Figure 23 for
minimum framing dimensions.
CAUTION
Measure fireplace dimensions and verify framing methods,
and wall covering details before framing construction begins.
Framing dimension A includes a 16 inch clearance for
framing standoffs on fireplace. After installing fireplace
into framing, the non-combustible board must cover the
16 inch opening above the fireplace.
Notice: For finishing to top of fireplace, refer to Figures 32
and 33.
B
Additionally, in regions where cold air infiltration may be an issue,
the inside surfaces may be sheet rocked and taped (or an
equivalent method may be used) to achieve maximum air tightness.
To further prevent drafts, the wall shield and ceiling firestops
should be caulked with caulk rated for a minimum of 300°F
continuous exposure rating to seal gaps. Gas line holes and
other openings should be caulked or stuffed with unfaced
insulation. If the fireplace is being installed on a cement surface,
a layer of plywood may be placed underneath to prevent
conducting cold up into the room.
Framing and Finishing
1. Choose fireplace location. See pages 14 - 15.
2. Frame in fireplace with a header across the top. It is
important to allow for finished face when setting the depth of
the fireplace.
3. Secure the four framing brackets and hand bend them into a
V shape as shown in Figure 24. Secure with #10 x 1/2 inch
hex-head screws.
4. Locate the nailing flanges on the sides of the fireplace (two
each side). See Figure 24.

Construction of a Fireplace Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose the gas
fireplace and/or its vent system. In cooler climates the vent
should be enclosed inside the chase.
NOTICE: Treatment of ceiling firestops and wall shield firestops
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, you MUST check local building
codes to determine the requirements to these steps.
A chase should be constructed in the manner of all outside walls
of the home to prevent cold air drafting problems. The chase
should not break the outside building envelope in any manner.
Walls, ceiling, base plate and cantilever floor of the chase should
be insulated. Vapor and air infiltration barriers should be installed in
the chase as per regional codes for the rest of the home.

VENTING FIREPLACE - TOP (CONT’D)
Positioning the Fireplace
Determine the exact position of the fireplace so the direct-vent
termination will be centered (if possible) between two studs. This
will avoid any extra framing. All vent kit pipes should be assembled
on the fireplace after the fireplace is moved into the final position.
Cutting the Hole
After the fireplace has been positioned in its permanent location,
the hole through the exterior wall can be cut. This hole must be 11
inch high x 9-1/8 inch wide with its center line determined by the
amount of vertical rise and horizontal run of the termination. See
Figures 42 and 43. When locating the hole it must be noted that
the bottom of the cap must be minimum of 12 inch (305mm) above
the ground level, and top of the cap must be no less than 18 inch
(457mm) below a combustible projection, and no closer than 9 inch
(229mm) to any wall running parallel to vent termination.
Below Grade Installation
When it is not possible to meet the required vent termination
clearances of 12 inch (305 mm) above grade level, a snorkel
kit is recommended. It allows installation depth down to 7 inch
(178 mm) below grade level. The 7 inch (178 mm) is measured
from the center of the horizontal vent pipe as it penetrates
through the wall.
Ensure the sidewall venting clearances are observed. If
venting system is installed below ground, we recommend
a window well with adequate and proper drainage to be
installed around the termination area.

To Use the Vent Graph
1. Determine the height of the center of the horizontal vent
pipe. Using this dimension on the Sidewall Vent Graph,
locate the point it intersects with the slanted graph line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical line to the
bottom of the graph.
3. Select the indicated dimension, and position the fireplace in
accordance with same.
EXAMPLE C:
If the horizontal run to the outer wall flange is 17 feet, the vertical
dimension from the floor of the fireplace to the center of the
termination must not be less than 7 feet 6 inches.
EXAMPLE A:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the fireplace is 32 feet,
the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not exceed 5 feet.
Example: According to the chart the maximum horizontal
vent length is 20 feet and if two 45° elbows are required in the
horizontal vent it must be reduced to 17 feet.
EXAMPLE B:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the fireplace is 24 feet,
the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not exceed 10 feet.

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.
NOTICE: Size of the roof hole dimensions depend on the pitch of
the roof. There must be a 1 inch (25 mm) clearance 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 55.
CAUTION
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.
Check local building codes to determine the requirements
for these steps.
NOTICE: Build the chase large enough to maintain the minimum
clearance of combustible materials (including insulation) to the vent
system.
When installing the vent system in a chase, insulate the

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.
Figure 56
If two vertical terminations are run near each other, they may be
placed a minimum of 12 inches between them if they are at the
same height. See Figure 54. If two vent terminations are not at
the same height, they must be positioned at least 24 inches apart
to minimize draft issues between them.

Installing the Vent System in a Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose the
gas fireplace and/or its vent system. Vertical vent runs on the
outside of a building may be, but are not required to be installed
inside a chase.

VERTICAL TERMINATION (CONT’D)
Vertical Through-the-Roof Applications
Your Gas Fireplace has been approved for:
a) Vertical installations up to 40 feet in height.
b) Two sets of 45-degree elbow offsets within these vertical
installations. From 0 to a maximum of 8 feet, a vent pipe can
be used between elbows.
c) Wall straps must be used to support offset pipe every 4 feet.
This application will require that you first determine the roof pitch
and use the appropriate venting components.
OFFSET CHART
General Maintenance
Inspect venting system semi-annually as follows:
1. Check for corrosion areas of the venting system exposed
to the elements. These will appear as rust spots or streaks
and, in extreme cases, holes. Replace damaged components
should immediately.
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 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.
RISE
Venting termination 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.
NOTICE: 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 59.

•
Always stretch and secure venting with wire or metal
strapping to ensure that the horizontal runs do not sag.
If space permits, it is generally easier to attach venting in
the top vent configuration.
Because of sharp edges, always use gloves when
handling the flex vent components.
Vent connections should overlap a minimum of 1” for
proper sealing.
Always follow the general venting requirements for
vent terminal location, vent lengths, and clearance to
combustible materials.
STEP-BY-STEP INSTALLATION
1. Unpack vent components and check that all items are included.
2. Check to see that the vent spacer springs are located around
the flue vent at 8 inch and 12 inch intervals along its length.
See Figure A. If not, stretch the spacer springs to about 15
inches long and wrap them around the flue, then interlock the
ends of each spring about 2 inches. See Figure B. Maintain
equal distance between spring spacers.
SPACER

7.
In most cases, after determining the length of the vent that
is needed, it may be easier to install the flue and outer vent
pipes to the Termination Cap first, then from the outside, feed
the venting through the wall to the fireplace.
If the venting is to long, trim off any excess vent before
attaching the vent end connectors.
CAUTION
Do not use force when installing the Horizontal Vent Termination
into the flex venting. Always stretch venting out first, then cut off
excessive vent material prior to sliding the vent termination into
the flue and inlet venting. Forcing the termination cap into the
flex venting will deform the flue venting, which will restrict the
exhaust gases, and cause improper operation of the fireplace.
8.
9.
Attach the Termination Cap to the outside of the house.
Prior to making the vent connections, apply high temperature
sealant (1000 degree F min.) to the vent connections before
securing with the band clamps provided. NOTICE: the
flue pipe end without the adapter is to be installed to the
Termination Cap.
10. Apply sealant to the outside of the flue pipe adapter and
connect to the flex flue pipe. Then insert the adapter into the
fireplace flue. Secure flue adapter to the fireplace flue with a
minimum of two screws provided. See Figure D.

DVVK-4FV DIRECT VENT TERMINATION KIT (CONT’D)
Step-By-Step Installation
1. Unpack vent components and check all items for shipping
damage.
2.
For this venting system to operate as designed it is dependent
on the use of all parts and procedures detailed in these instructions. Failure to follow these instructions may potentially affect
the performance of this vent system and the attached appliance.
3.
As per the fireplace manufacturer’s instructions, replace the
existing 6-5/8 inch diameter fireplace vent adapter with the 7
inch diameter flex vent fireplace adapter included in the vent
kit. Install the adapter collar with the screws removed from
the standard fireplace collar. Refer to the fireplace manual for
additional information on the vent collar removal and installation.
4.
Once the fireplace location has been determined, mark the
ceiling where the flex vent will pass through. Cut an opening
for installation of the firestop thimble assembly. The opening
must measure a minimum of 9-1/2 inch x 9-1/2 inch square.
See Figure 60.
Figure 60
40375-1-1019
5.
Next, determine the location for the cutout in the roof opening.
This opening must be large enough to provide a minimum 1
inch air space clearance from the vertical vent pipe to any
combustible framing.
6.
Install the Firestop/Thimble assembly to the framed opening
in the ceiling using common nails or screws.
NotICE: The thimble assembly is adjustable up or down as
needed within the firestop. It is also designed with a pivoting
firestop for use with 0 - 3/12 pitch cathedral ceilings.
7.
To begin vent system assembly, first layout all the vent components
on the floor in the order in which they will be assembled.
8.
Stretch the 4 inch diameter inner flex flue and 7 inch diameter
outer flex vent to the maximum length of 6 feet.
9.
Install the spring spacers provided around the 4 inch diameter
flex flue at 1 foot intervals, then slide the flue pipe with spacers into the 7 inch diameter outer flex vent pipe. Make sure
the springs are spaced evenly starting at 12 inches from the
fireplace collar. See Figure 61.
Figure 61
Page 35
DVVK-4FV DIRECT VENT TERMINATION KIT (CONT’D)
10. With the flex vent assembly and the 48 inch long hard pipe
components laid out on the floor, begin securing these parts
together. First, apply a generous bead of silicone sealant to
the inside of the 4 inch diameter flex flue (not the end with the
pre-installed connector), then slide the flex flue over the 4 inch
diameter hard pipe flue. Be sure to overlap at least 1-1/4 inch.
Secure this connection with a 4 inch diameter band clamp
provided. Be careful not to damage or tear the flex flue when
tightening clamp.
11. Repeat the connection process for the outer 7 inch diameter
flex vent to hard pipe connection. Use silicone sealant at this
joint also, overlap at least 1-1/4 inch, then secure the joint with
the 7 inch diameter band clamp provided. Be careful not to
damage or tear the flex vent pipe when tightening the clamp.
12. While the venting is still on the floor, assemble the roof jack
components as shown in Figure 62 and pre-install the roof
jack assembly to the hard pipe approximately 18 inches from
the top end of the hard pipe.
13. Now the pre-assembled vent system may be carried to the
roof, then lowered through the roof cutout opening (see step
5). Feed the flex vent end down through the roof opening and
firestop/thimble assembly installed in steps 4 through 6.
14. Secure the roof support assembly to the roof sheathing with at
least four nails/screws through each support bracket. Check
that the combustible clearances through the roof framing will
maintain at least a 1” clearance from the vent pipe.
15. Determine how high the vent terminal should be located
above the roof line based on the roof pitch information shown
in Figure 63. Adjust the vent system height by loosening the
pre-installed roof support pipe clamp and sliding the vent pipe
up or down as pre-determined, then re-tighten the pipe clamp.
Install a couple of sheet metal screws through the pipe clamp
into the outer hard vent pipe to lock in place.
16. Check to make sure that the bottom end of the flex vent is
long enough to reach the fireplace adapter collars. If too long,
trim off the extra flex vent not needed.

inch diameter adapter collar has been installed per step 3. Apply a bead of silicone sealant to the 4 inch diameter flex connector, then slide the flex pipe adapter collar into the fireplace
flue collar and secure by installing a minimum of two screws
through the flue collar and into the adapter. See Figure 64.
18. Apply sealant to the 7 inch diameter adapter collar, slide outer
flex vent over the collar, then secure with a 7 inch diameter
band clamp. See Figure 64.
Figure 65
20. Install the roof flashing, and seal using common constructions
practices.
Figure 64
19. Once the lower connections are made and the flex pipe is
secured with support bands as required (3 feet minimum between supports) then the roof flashing can be installed. See
Figure 65.
21. An additional storm collar band is provided in kit that may be
used as an attic insulation shield. The collar can be installed
around the flex pipe (or hard pipe) just above the firestop
thimble. This collar will act as a shield to prevent blown insulation from entering the thimble.
22. To complete the vent installation, install the vent termination
cap to the top of the hard vent pipe assembly. Mate up the
flue and outer telescopes with the hard pipe assembly, then
secure by installing a minimum of two sheet metal screws into
the overlapped flanges of the cap and pipe.
23. Figure 65 shows a completed installation with components
identified and other installation information such as heights
and clearance to combustibles.

FRAMING AND FINISHING
Installing Support Brackets
Install a horizontal pipe support used for each 3 feet of horizontal
run to framing members. Allow 3 inch clearance to combustibles
above 8 inch diameter pipe and elbows, and 1 inch clearance to
both sides and bottom.
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.
Support vertical runs of this vent systems every 4 feet using wall
brackets attached to the vent pipe, then secured with nails or
screws to structural framing.
Horizontal Firestops
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. See Figure 68. Secure firestop with nails or screws.
Continue the vent run through the firestops.

Vertical Firestops
Vertical runs of this system which pass through ceilings require
the use of ONE 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 fireplace and vent system, if
necessary, to accommodate ceiling joists and/or obstructions.
Cut a 9-1/2 inch x 9-1/2 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 69. 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 70.
If the area above the ceiling is an attic, position and secure the
firestop on top of the previously framed hole. See Figure 71.
NOTE: Remove insulation from the framed area in the attic
before installing the firestop and/or vent pipes.
Figure 71
Finishing
Finish the walls with the material of your choice. Figure 14
on Page 14 shows the minimum vertical and corresponding
maximum horizontal dimensions of mantels or other combustible
projections above the top front edge of the fireplace.
Only non-combustible materials may be used to cover the black
fireplace front.
WARNING
When finishing the fireplace never obstruct or modify the
air inlet/outlet louvers in any manner. Provide adequate
clearances around air openings into the combustion chamber.
CAUTION
Figure 69
If the joints between the finished wall and the fireplace
surround (top and sides) are sealed, a 300 Degree F minimum
sealant material must be used. These joints are not required to
be sealed. Only non-combustible material (using 300 Degree
F minimum adhesive if needed), can be applied as facing to
the fireplace surround.

MULTIFUNCTION REMOTE OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Using the Fireplace without a Remote Control
The fireplace can be turned ON (HI only) and OFF with the wall
switch. The fireplace flame ON/OFF is the only function that will
operate; no flame adjustment, light or blower will work when using
the wall switch. The wall control switch should be turned OFF
when the fireplace is not being used for extended periods of time.
Battery Backup Operation
Install batteries (See initialization sequence on page 69). In
case of power loss, the fireplace will switch to battery mode
automatically. The fireplace will operate normally without the fan
or light control when in battery mode.
Low Battery Detection
When the backup batteries are low, a double-beep will be emitted
when the module receives an on/off command. No commands
will be accepted until the batteries are replaced or the A/C power
is restored.
Lockout State Definition
A lockout state is reached when an ignition error occurs. The
lockout state will remain set in memory as long as the power
supplies are applied.
This could mean both an anomalous flame detection and/or too
many unsuccessful ignition tries.
This state is a safe condition for the fireplace and is entered
automatically by the IFC board.
When the IFC board gets into lockout state:
1. both the Pilot and the Main Burner solenoids in the gas valve
are de-energized;
2. a diagnostic code is sent through the diagnostic red LED.
3. the IFC board will ignore any burner ignition command
and remain in the OFF state unless the unlock command
sequence is met.
The causes of lockout must be investigated under safe conditions
by the user and/or the service personnel.
To reset the IFC from a lockout state, perform
the following procedure:
•
Turning the system power supplies (to the wall control or
remote control) OFF for two or three seconds and then
restoring a power supply back on.
The return of the system to normal operation must be checked
under safe conditions by the user and/or service personnel.

MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE (CONT’D)
MAINTeNance and Service
The only recommended maintenance for the homeowner is
periodically cleaning the glass. Before cleaning the glass read
the warnings below.
This fireplace has no user-serviceable mechanical components.
Contact your dealer or a qualified gas appliance service
technician for all service and repair.
Accessing the Control Module
WARNING
Always turn off gas and electrical supply to the fireplace
before servicing.
1.
2.
3.
Remove the barrier screen and glass door assemblies, and
set them aside in a safe location.
It is not necessary to remove decorative glass media from
the burner cover or accent glass panels to gain access to the
control module.
The control module is in the lower front corner of the
fireplace bottom. It is secured to the fireplace with Velcro.
The gas control and LED light wiring is routed through the
lower right side opening to the gas valve wire connections.
The 120V power cords are routed through the lower right
side opening and plugged into the Junction Box receptacle.
Refer to the electrical connections section for additional
information.
MAINTENANCE
Maintenance frequency must be determined individually for each
application. Some considerations are:
•
Cycling frequency. Fireplaces that may cycle 20,000 times
annually should be checked monthly.
•
Intermittent use. Fireplaces that are used seasonally should
be checked before shutdown and again before the next use.
•
Dusty, wet or corrosive environment. Because these
environments can cause the gas control to deteriorate more
rapidly, the system should be checked more often.
•
Any control should be replaced if it does not perform properly
on checkout or service. In addition, replace any module if it
is wet or looks like it has been wet.
Service
Do not disassemble the gas control; it contains non-replaceable
components. Attempted disassembly or repair can damage the
control.
Exactly follow the warnings and the lighting instructions.
1. Before lighting, smell around the fireplace area for gas. If
the fireplace uses Propane (bottled) gas, be sure to smell
next to the floor because Propane gas is heavier than air. If
you smell gas, immediately shut off the manual valve in the
gas piping to the fireplace or on Propane at the tank. Do not
try to light any appliance. Do not touch any electrical switch
or use the phone. Leave the building and call your gas
supplier. If your gas supplier cannot be reached, call the fire
department.
2. The gas control must be replaced if it has been flooded with
water. Call a qualified service technician.
3. The gas control is a safety device. It must be replaced
in case of any physical damage such as bent terminals,
missing parts, stripped threads, or evidence of exposure to
excessive heat.
40375-1-1019
Follow the operating instructions provided by the manufacturer of
your appliance.
NOTICE: It is normal for fireplaces fabricated of steel to give off
some expansion and/or contraction noise during the start up or
cool down cycle. 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 oil from
the manufacturing process.
Please ensure that your room is well ventilated - open a window.
Burn your fireplace for at least one hour the first time you
use it. If optional fan kit has been installed, place fan in the
OFF position during this time.
IMPORTANT: Turn off gas before servicing fireplace. Have a
qualified service person perform these check-ups once a year
preferably before the using of the fireplace.
• Clean Burner and Control Compartment
Keep the control compartment and burner area clean by
vacuuming or brushing at least twice a year.
Cleaning Procedure
1. Turn off fireplace.
2. Remove the barrier screen and glass door assembly. See
Glass Door Removal.
3. Remove decorative media (a clean portable shop-vac is
recommended).
4. Vacuum burner cover and burner screen areas. The control
module located in the bottom front corner can also be
vacuumed off.
5. Replace decorative media.
6. Reinstall the glass door and barrier screen.
7. Ignite fireplace. See Lighting Instructions.
8. If flame appears abnormal, call a service person.
WARNING
Handle the glass with care to avoid breaking it. Never strike
the glass. To prevent etching or discoloring, clean the glass
with Fireplace Glass Cleaner (available from your dealer).

Check Vent System
The fireplace and venting system should be inspected
before initial use and at least annually by a qualified service
person. Inspect the external vent cap on a regular basis to
make sure that no debris is interfering with the air flow.
Glass Cleaning
Clean the glass before use and two or three times each heating
season. During start-up condensation (which is normal) forms on
the inside of the glass and causes lint, dust and other airborne
particles to cling to the glass surface. Also initial paint curing
may deposit a slight film on the glass. Use a non-abrasive
household cleaner and warm water (we recommend gas
fireplace glass cleaner).
WARNING
Do not use Ammonia based or abrasive cleaners on glass.
Do not attempt to clean glass when glass is hot.

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 fireplace 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.
Page 64
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. 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.
