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.
Page 4
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.

VENT SYSTEM IDENTIFICATION
Begin the vent system installation by selecting the type of venting
to be installed and the path that it will take. Verify that clearances
are met throughout the path of the venting system. Determine if the
fireplace is to be vented out the top or out the rear.
NOTICE: Some fireplaces cannot be vented out the rear of the fireplace.
Determine how the vent system will be terminated out the side of
the house or through the roof. Verify clearances for the termination.
When selecting a vent system for use with the fireplace, refer to the
“Special Vent Systems” section in this manual to determine what
systems are acceptable.
Check all clearances and venting components. Identify if any
problems existing in the vent system. Use Figure 22, page 18 for

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 a New 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 (3.5 kPa).
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 (3.5 kPa).
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. (.871 kPa) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 4.5” w.c.
(1.120 kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
14.0” w.c. (3.484 kPa). Propane Gas models will have a manifold
pressure approximately 10.0” w.c. (2.49 kPa) at the valve outlet
with the inlet pressure to the valve from a minimum of 10.8” w.c.
(2.68 kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
14.0” w.c. (3.484 kPa).

Framing and Finishing
1. Choose unit location.
2. Frame in fireplace with a header across the top. It is important
to allow for finished face when setting the depth of the frame.
3. Attach fireplace to frame using adjustable frame. Preset depth
to suit facing material (adjustable to 1/2”, 5/8” or 3/4” depths).
4. Use eight 1/2” hex-head screws supplied in hardware package,
to screw through slotted holes in drywall strip and then screw
into pre-drilled holes on fireplace side. See Figure 10. Measure
from face of fireplace to face of drywall strip to determine final
depth.
Vent Pipe Clearance
Notice: Maintain one inch of clearance around vertical vent
pipe. See Figure 11. For horizontal vent, maintain a minimum 1”
clearance to the bottom and sides of the vent, and 3” clearance to
combustibles above the vent pipe. See Figure 12.

Attention: When fireplace is installed in optional full cabinet mantel
or corner mantel the four nailing flanges shown in Figure 13 will
not be installed on the side of outer casing. The fireplace will be
attached to the full cabinet mantel or corner mantel with the two
nailing flanges located on the top of the outer casing assembly.
Framing
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 or heavier. The framing headers may
rest on the fireplace standoffs. Refer to Figure 14 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 three inch clearance for
standoffs on firebox. After installing firebox into framing,
the finished wall surface must cover the three inch opening
above the firebox.
Attention: Add 3-3/4" to “A” dimensions when using a flush mantel
base.
Attention: If a base or mantel is not used and the appliance is
installed directly on carpeting, tile or other combustible material other
than wood flooring, it shall be installed on a metal or wood panel
extending the full width and depth of the appliance. The vertical
dimension in Figure 14 must be adjusted when a metal or wood
panel is placed beneath the appliance.
Finishing
Finish the walls with the material of your choice. Figure 5 on page 10
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
If the joints between the finished wall and the fireplace surround (top and sides) are sealed, a 300°F minimum sealant
material must be used. These joints are not required to be
sealed. Only non-combustible material (using 300°F minimum adhesive if needed), can be applied as facing to the
fireplace surround.

Flush Wall Installation
Attention: Cold climate installation recommendation: When
installing this unit against a non-insulated exterior wall, it is
recommended that the outer walls be insulated to conform
to applicable insulation codes.
Vent Runs
In planning the installation for the fireplace, it is necessary to install
certain components before the appliance is completely positioned
and installed. These include the direct vent system, gas piping for
the appliance and the electrical wiring (If the fan option is used).
The appliance can be mounted on any of the following surfaces:
1. A flat, hard combustible (burnable) surface.
2. A raised wooden platform.
3. Four corner supports. (Example: Four concrete masonry blocks.)
These supports must be positioned so they contact all four
perimeter edges on the bottom of the unit.

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 unit in accordance
with same.
Venting Graph (Dimensions in Feet)
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 6.5 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. These elbows can be installed in either the
vertical or horizontal run.
Notice: On vertical venting the first elbow does not get counted.
Acceptable vertical and horizontal vent run.
(40' maximum vertical and 20' maximum horizontal)

Below Grade Installation
When it is not possible to meet the required vent terminal clearances
of 12” (305 mm) above grade level, a snorkel kit is recommended.
It allows installation depth down to 7” (178 mm) below grade level.
The 7” (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.

REAR VENT CONVERSION
Converting flue take-off to rear venting
When switching out the flue and inlet vent collars to run horizontally
off the rear vent, the following steps must be taken.
1. Remove the inlet vent collar (8 screws) and flue collar (4 screws)
from the top of the fireplace, and set to the side.
2. Remove the inlet cover plate and flue cover plate located on the
back of the fireplace. These will be used to close the top flue and
inlet openings.
3. Insert the insulation retainer bracket and insulation into the top
flue pipe before reinstalling the flue cover plate over the top flue
with 4 screws.
Page 24
4. Reinstall the inlet cover plate over the top inlet opening with 4
screws. See illustration above..
5. Install the flue collar assembly to the rear flue with 4 screws.
6. Install the inlet vent collar to the rear of the fireplace with 8 screws.
7. This completes the conversion for a rear vent application.
Note: for top vented installations, the insulation and retainer are
to be removed from the flue pipe and discarded.

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
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 Figure 26 on page 20 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

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 40. If the area above the
ceiling is NOT an attic, position and secure the ceiling firestop on

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 28
38713-5-1019
HORIZONTAL TERMINATION
NOTice: 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.
For installations requiring a vertical rise on the exterior of the
building, 14-inch and 36-inch tall Snorkel Terminations, as shown in
Figure 45 are available. Follow the same installation procedures as
used for standard Horizontal Terminations. If the Snorkel Termination
must be installed below grade, (i.e. basement application), proper
drainage must be provided to prevent water from entering the
Snorkel Termination. Refer to Figure 46. Do not attempt to enclose
the Snorkel within the wall or any other type of enclosure.
NOTice: Wood screws can and should be replaced with appropriate
fasteners for use on stucco, brick, concrete or other types
of siding.
CAUTION
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 44. 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.
NOTice: 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 Figures 47A and 47B.
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 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.
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 48.
Installing the Vent System in a Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose the gas
appliance and/or it’s vent system. Vertical vent runs on the outside of
a building may be, but are not required to be installed inside 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.

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. Therefore, your local building codes must be checked
to determine the requirements for these steps.
NOTice: 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 rear (yellow) 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 two 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.
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 ft. a 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.

All vent system components lock into place by sliding the concentric
pipe section with four equally spaced interior beads onto the appliance
collar or previously installed component end with four equally spaced
indented sections. When the internal beads of each starting outer
pipe line up, rotate pipe section clockwise 90° (approximately 3
inches). The vent pipe is now locked together.
Continue replacing components per the vent system configuration.
Be certain that each succeeding vent component is securely fitted
and locked into the preceding component in the vent system.

DVVK-4F FLEX VENT INSTRUCTIONS
The DVVK-4F FLEX VENT KIT includes the following components:
•
(1) Horizontal Termination Cap
•
(1) 4-foot section of Flex vent with spacers (4” flue/7” outer
pipe)
•
(1) 4” diameter Flue adapter collar
•
(1) 7” diameter Outer Vent adapter collar
•
(1) Wall Firestop/Thimble Assembly
•
Hardware pack that includes band clamps and screws
5.
Flex venting can be installed either vertically or horizontally
off of the DVD Series fireplaces. When installing a horizontal
vent run from top connections, maintain at least ½” rise
for every 12” of vent run. When venting horizontal off the
rear vent connections, allow a minimum rise of 2”. Refer to
Figure 44 when mounting termination near vinyl siding.
CAUTION: 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.
7.
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” and 12” intervals along its length. See Figure A. If not,
stretch the spacer springs to about 15” long and wrap them around
the flue, then interlock the ends of each spring about 2”. See Figure
B. Maintain equal distance between spring spacers.
3. Remove the 6-⅝” diameter Vent collar from the fireplace. Replace this
collar with the 7” diameter Flex Vent adapter collar provided with the
vent kit.
4. Slide the Flex Vent flue pipe into the Outer Flex Vent pipe.
Page 32
6.
Install the Wall Firestop/Thimble assembly as required through the
wall. Refer to the venting charts in the fireplace manual to determine
the proper height and size of the vent opening. The minimum opening
should be 9” wide by 11” high. The minimum combustible clearance
from the horizontal vent is 1” from sides and bottom, and 3” above the
vent pipe. See Figure D.
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. Note: 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 C.
11. Attach the Outer Vent pipe to the 7” diameter Collar on the fireplace
with a large band clamp provided. Sealant may also be used on the
outer vent connections.
12. Check all vent connections for tightness. Make sure horizontal venting
has the proper rise and combustible clearances required. Refer to
venting charts in fireplace instruction manual.

Parts Verification
See parts list on page 35 to verify components included in this vent
kit prior to installation.
NOTICE: If installing onto wood, lap, or vinyl siding, the vinyl siding
kit should be used (sold separately, part number DV-822).
The vinyl siding vent kit, DV-822, is available from Empire Comfort
Systems, Inc. The depth is 3” (76 mm), which enables the vent
cap to be extended away from vinyl siding or projections. The wall
depth plus the additional 3” (76 mm) depth of the vinyl siding vent
cap extension should not exceed a total depth of 13 3/4” (349 mm).
Figure 50
If wall depth exceeds 13 3/4” (349 mm), extend system using
6 5/8” (168 mm) x 4” (102 mm) rigid venting. See Fireplace Instructions for approved lengths. See Figure 51.
Installing Wall Thimble/Firestop Assembly
1. Fix fireplace to permanent location. If using rigid venting system,
install up to the location where it will exit the building.
2. Cut hole in wall for wall thimble/firestop assembly (Figure 50)
into your combustible wall. Note: On brick or block exterior wall
a 7” (178 mm) diameter hole needs to be cut.
Measure the total wall thickness to determine whether or not the
extension thimble is to be used. If the combustible wall depth
is over 5 3/8” (137 mm), then the extension thimble should be
used. See Figure 50.
3. Install the wall thimble assembly through the framed opening so
the firestop plate is on the interior wall. See Figure 50. Telescope
section should extend all the way through the exterior wall. Attach with four 10 x 1” screws.
4. When placing the vent cap on an exterior wall covered with
combustibles such as wood, lap, or vinyl siding, install the vinyl
siding kit to the exterior wall sheathing.
Figure 51
Cutting Vent Tubes
This is the most important part of the installation. With
the fireplace (and the rigid venting system if used) fixed to its
permanent location, the 6 5/8” (168 mm) diameter air inlet tube
and the 4” (102 mm) diameter flue outlet tube are to be marked
and cut using the following procedure.
5. Attach the inlet tube to the outside mounting plate. Align
tinnerman clips on the tabs of the air inlet tube to the holes on
outside mounting plate, and fix with two #10 x 1/2” screws.
6. With the vinyl siding kit installed to wall (if necessary), insert
the 6 5/8” (168 mm) diameter tube with outside mounting plate
attached through hole in wall. Connect to collar on fireplace or
rigid vent system. Measure between wall or vent cap extension
and outside mounting plate. See Figures 52 and 53.

7. Remove outside mounting plate with tube attached from wall.
Mark and cut the extra length of the 6 5/8” (168 mm) diameter
tube from the opposite end. Do not crimp or enlarge tube.
8. Attach the 4” (102 mm) diameter flue outlet tube onto the rigid
venting system or directly to fireplace. Ensure the 4” (102 mm)
diameter flue outlet tube is placed as far as possible onto the
rigid venting system. Mark the 4” (102 mm) diameter flue outlet
tube 2 1/2” (64 mm) beyond the vinyl siding kit or wall. See
Figure 53. Remove the 4” (102 mm) diameter flue outlet tube
from rigid venting system. When installing directly to fireplace,
tape gasket needs to be used.
9. Mark or wrap tape completely around the tubes at the marked
points to help in making a true cut. Do not crimp or enlarge
tubes.

10. From outside: Push the 6 5/8” (168 mm) diameter inlet tube/
mounting plate onto end of rigid venting system to correct position. Fasten the outside mounting plate to the vinyl siding kit or
wall with four 10 x 1 1/2” screws. (Ensure upward slope).
11. From inside: Attach the inlet tube to the collar on the back of the
fireplace (or the rigid venting system) using three self tapping
screws.
12. Seal the 4” (102 mm) diameter flue outlet tube. Follow instructions and diagram. See Figure 54.
13. Fasten 4” (102 mm) diameter flue outlet tube in place. Do not
“twist” the flue outlet tube into the fireplace collar (or rigid venting system). Hold the tube by the seam and push in using a
perpendicular “rocking” motion. This ensures the seam on the
tube stay intact.

Connecting Directly to Fireplace
If the air inlet and flue outlet tubes are to be connected directly to
the unit (no rigid venting system is being used), then the gasket
provided must be used to seal the 4” (102 mm) flue outlet tube.
Peel the paper off the self-adhesive gasket and then wrap it around
the end of the tube (if tube was cut, it is recommended to use cut
end) as shown in Figure 54. Pull the gasket tight at all times while
wrapping it around tube. The gasket ends should align, to form a
complete seal. The overlapped section should NOT come in contact with the seam in the tube. Apply high temperature sealant to
the opposite end of the tube (on the inside of the tube). The end
with the gasket will attach to the back of the unit. Continue with
Step 13.
Connecting to Rigid Vent System
If the air inlet and flue outlet tubes are to be connected to a rigid
venting system (and not directly to the back of the unit), then do
not use the gasket provided. High temperature sealant should be
applied to the outside of the 4” diameter (102 mm) flue outlet tube
(if tube was cut, it is recommended to use cut end) and to the inside of the tube on the end that connects to the vent cap. Continue
with step 13.

MILLIVOLT OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (FP3 SERIES)
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 to two 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.
CAUTION: 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.
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such purging
if the gas valve is not turned to “OFF.”
Pilot Flame
The thermopile/thermocouple (standing pilot) tips should be covered
with flame.
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 59. 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.

MILLIVOLT STANDING PILOT TROUBLESHOOTING (FP3 SERIES)
With proper installation and maintenance, your new Direct Vent Gas Fireplace will provide years of trouble-free service. If you
do experience a problem, refer to the Trouble Shooting Guide below. This guide will assist a qualified service person in the
diagnosis of problems and the corrective action to be taken.
1. Spark ignitor will not light pilot after repeated triggering of
piezo ignitor button.
a. Defective ignitor (no spark electrode)
—Check for spark at electrode and pilot; if no spark and
electrode wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
b. No gas or low gas pressure.
—Check remote shut off valves from fireplace. Usually there
is a valve near the main. There can be more than one valve
between the fireplace and main.
—Low pressure can be caused by a variety of situations
such as a bent line, too narrow diameter of pipe, or low line
pressure. Consult with plumber or gas supplier.
c. No Propane in tank.
—Check Propane tank. Refill tank.
2.Pilot will not stay lit after carefully following lighting
instructions.
a. Defective thermocouple.
—Check that pilot flame impinges on thermocouple. Clean
and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement.
—Ensure the thermocouple connection at the gas valve
is fully inserted and tight (hand tight plus 1/4 turn). Faulty
thermocouple if reading is below specified minimum of 15
millivolts.
—Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one
millivolt meter lead wire on the end of the thermocouple and
the other millivolt meter lead wire on the thermocouple copper
wire. Start the pilot and hold the valve knob in. If the millivolt
reading is less than 15 millivolt, replace the thermocouple.
b. Defective valve.
—If thermocouple is producing more than 15 millivolts, replace
faulty valve.
3. Pilot burning, no gas to burner, valve knob “ON”, REMOTE/
OFF/ON switch “ON.”
a. REMOTE/OFF/ON switch, wall switch, remote control or
wires defective.
—Check REMOTE/OFF/ON switch and wires for proper
connections. Place jumper wires across terminal at switch.
If burner comes on, replace defective switch. If OK, place
jumper wires across switch wires at gas valve-if burner comes
on, wires are faulty or connections are bad.
b. Thermopile may not be generating sufficient millivolts.
—If the pilot flame is not close enough physically to the
thermopile, adjust the pilot flame.
—Be sure the wire connections from the thermopile at the gas
valve terminals are tight and the thermopile is fully inserted
into the pilot bracket.
—Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take the
reading at TH-TP & TP terminals of the gas valve. The meter
should read 350 millivolts minimum, while holding the valve
knob depressed in the pilot position, with the pilot lit, and
the REMOTE/OFF/ON switch in the OFF position. Replace
the faulty thermopile if the reading is below the specified
minimum.
—With the pilot in the ON position, disconnect the thermopile
leads from the valve. Take a reading at the thermopile leads.
The reading should be 350 millivolts minimum. Replace the
thermopile if the reading is below the minimum.
c. Defective valve.

IPI ELECTRONIC SYSTEM OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (FP7 SERIES)
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 Continuess Pilot mode, the pilot remains ON continuously even when the burner is turned
OFF.
NotICE: A small toggle switch is located on the front of the module tray that is used to switch from IPI (left) to the CPI (right). See
Figure 65.
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.

furnace heat exchanger or car engine.
It is not unusual 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
undetected oil from the manufacturing process.
Please ensure that your room is well ventilated - open all windows.
It is recommended that you burn your fireplace for at least six
(6) hours 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 appliance. It is
recommended that a qualified service person perform these checkups 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.
Cleaning Procedure
1. Turn off pilot light at gas valve.
2. Remove glass front. (See Glass Removal)
3. Vacuum burner compartment.
4. Reinstall glass front.
5. Ignite pilot. (See Lighting Instructions)
6. Operate the pilot burner. If it appears abnormal call a service
person.
• Check Vent System
The appliance 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
It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically. 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. It is therefore recommended that the glass be cleaned two or
three times with a non-abrasive household cleaner and warm water
(we recommend gas fireplace glass cleaner). After that the glass
should be cleaned two or three times during each heating season
depending on the circumstances present.
WARNING:
1. The use of substitute glass will void all product warranties.
2. Care must be taken to avoid breakage of the glass.
3. Under no circumstances should this appliance be operated without
the glass front or with a broken glass front. Replacement of the
glass (with gasket) as supplied by the manufacturer should be
done by a qualified service person.
4. Do not abuse the glass by striking or hitting the glass.
WARNING: Do not use abrasive cleaners on glass. Do not
attempt to clean glass when glass is hot.
Glass Door Removal
1. Remove the top louver by grasping the louver, then lift upward
and pull forward.
2. Remove the bottom louver by lifting up and pulling forward.
3. Locate the bottom two glass frame spring clamps. Pull forward
and down to release them from the Glass Door frame.
4. Remove the Glass Door by pulling the bottom of the door
outward several inches, then lift upwards to disengage it from
the firebox upper flange.
Glass Door Installation
1. When installing the Glass Door assembly, make sure that the
door top flange is hooked over the firebox top flange as illustrated
in the “Correct” view in Figure 66.
Important: Do not allow the gasket across the top of the
door to roll up on top of the firebox flange as shown in
“Incorrect” view in Figure 66.
2. To install correctly, the door should be held at an angle outward
from the firebox as shown in the illustration, then carefully engage
the upper flange of the door frame with the top flange of the
firebox. Center the door left to right, then allow the bottom of
the door to swing inward to seal against the firebox front.
3. Once the glass door is placed flat to the firebox front edges,
engage the two spring latches to the bottom flange on the glass
door frame to secure the door assembly.
4. Replace the top and bottom louvers.

Wiring
The appliance, when installed, must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes,
with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, if an external
electrical source is utilized. This appliance is equipped with
a three-prong [grounding] plug for your protection against
shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly
grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or remove the
grounding prong from this plug. For an ungrounded receptacle,
an adapter, which has two prongs and a wire for grounding, can
be purchased, plugged into the ungrounded receptacle and its
wire connected to the receptacle mounting screw. With this wire
completing the ground, the appliance cord plug can be plugged
into the adapter and be electrically grounded.
Caution: Label all wires prior to disconnection when
servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause improper
and dangerous operation. Verify proper operation after
servicing.
Blower Motor
The blower motor does not have oiling holes. Do not attempt to
oil the blower motor.
Blower Wheels
The blower wheels will collect lint and could require periodic
cleaning. If the air output decreases or the noise level increases,
it indicates a dirty blower wheel. Remove fan and clean blower
wheels.
Warning: Unplugging of blower accessory will not stop the
heater from cycling. To turn off gas to the heater (millivolt
model): push in gas control knob slightly and turn clockwise
to "OFF." Do not force.
