IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION (CONT'D)
WARNING
Do not use this appliance if any part has been under water.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect
the appliance and replace any part of the control system
and any gas control that has been under water.
All units with gas control valves must be lit by a Safety Pilot. The
pilot is located at the right, rear of the unit.
Follow these instructions exactly when lighting the appliance.
BEFORE LIGHTING, smell around the appliance area for gas. Be
sure to smell next to the floor, as propane gas is heavier than air
and will settle to the floor.
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.
WARNING
All gas burning appliances produce smoke and carbon monoxide gas during operation. These fumes can be harmful if the
appliance is used in any other than a fully vented fireplace.
WARNING
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires that the
chimney flue damper, when used with decorative gas log
sets, be welded open or completely removed. In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, this appliance must be installed by a licensed plumber or gasfitter.
WARNING
Improper installation, adjustment, alteration, service or maintenance, can cause property damage, personal injury or loss
of life. Refer to the owner’s information manual, provided with
this appliance. Installation and service must be performed by
a qualified installer, service agency or the gas supplier.

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.
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.
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.
The odorant in propane gas is colorless, and it can fade under
some circumstances. For example, if there is an underground
leak, the movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant.
Odorants in propane gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading
can occur if there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into
walls, masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will
take some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.
Propane gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity
could vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may
be more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest gas
odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately
go into action as instructed earlier.

installation.
2. Installer must have owner fill out and mail warranty card
supplied with the fireplace.
3. Installer should show owner how to start and operate the
fireplace.
WARNING
Any change to this appliance or its controls can be dangerous. Improper installation or use of the appliance can cause
serious injury or death from fire, burns, explosion or carbon
monoxide poisoning.
General Information
Any alteration of the original design, installed other than as
shown in these instructions or use with a type of gas not
shown on the rating plate is the responsibility of the person
and company making the change.
Important
All correspondence should refer to complete Model No., Serial
No. and type of gas. This information can be found on the data
plate supplied with the burner.
Notice: During initial use of the logs you will detect an odor as
the logs are cured. This is normal.
WARNING
A fireplace screen must be in place when this appliance is
in operation. The screen shall allow for introduction of combustion air.
WARNING
When this decorative gas appliance is used in a fireplace
equipped with glass doors, the glass doors should remain
open during log set operation. This will maximize the radiant
heat provided to the surrounding area, and minimize overheating of any valve installation. The glass doors may be
closed when the log set is not in use.
Fireplace preparation
•
Carefully remove all contents from the burner carton.
•
Check the contents of the carton against the parts list in this
manual. Report any missing or damaged parts to your dealer.
•
Turn off gas supply to fireplace or firebox.
•
Have the fireplace floor and chimney professionally cleaned to
remove ashes, soot, creosote or other obstructions.
Have this cleaning performed annually after installation.
•
Seal any fresh air vents or ash clean-out doors located on floor
or wall of fireplace. If not, drafting may cause pilot outage or
excessive sooting. Use a heat-resistant sealant. Do not seal
chimney flue damper.
•
Special care is required if you are installing the unit into
a sunken fireplace. You must raise the fireplace floor with
non-combustible material to allow access to gas log controls.
This will ensure adequate air flow and guard against sooting.
Raise the fireplace floor using noncombustible materials.
Minimum firebox dimensions must be met after floor is raised.
Installing Damper Clamp
Remove all ashes or other debris from the fireplace. If the fireplace
is equipped with an ash dump be sure to seal the door with furnace
cement or high temperature silicone. Be sure to check the damper
for proper operation and verify that the flue passageway is open.
Attach damper clamp to the vent damper and tighten hold down bolt.
Place the clamp over the lip of the damper and tighten the hold
down bolt until the clamp is securely attached to the damper. This
will prevent the damper from accidentally closing.

Installing a New Main Gas Shut-Off Valve
Each appliance should have its own manual gas shut-off valve.
In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts the gas shut-off valve must
be a T handle type.
A manual main gas shut-off valve 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. Testing for leaks on
all exposed connections should be done with leak detection test
solution. After testing is complete, all solution should be cleaned
off. On unexposed connections, a pressure test should be made.
Figure 3
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.
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 4. 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.
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!

Pressure Testing of the Gas Supply System
1. To check the inlet pressure to the gas valve, use the test gauge
connection described below.
2. The appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
3. The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system
by closing its individual manual shutoff 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).
CAUTION
If one of the procedures results in pressures in excess of 1/2
psig (14-in w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the appliance gas valve, it will
result in a hazardous condition.
Checking Manifold Pressure
Propane Gas converted models will have a manifold pressure of
approximately 10.0-in w.c. (2.49kPa) at the pressure regulator outlet
with the inlet pressure to the pressure regulator from a minimum
of 10.8-in w.c. (2.69kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a
maximum of 14.0-in w.c. (3.48kPa).
Natural Gas models will have a manifold pressure of approximately
5.3-in w.c. (1.12kPa) at the pressure regulator outlet with the inlet
pressure to the pressure regulator from a minimum of 6.0-in w.c.
(1.74lPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of

REMOTE OPERATION
TWO-FUNCTION WIRELESS REMOTE CONTROL SYSTEM
FOR ON/OFF-VARIABLE OPERATION OF THE GAS CONTROL VALVE
IF YOU CANNOT READ OR UNDERSTAND THESE INSTRUCTIONS DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPERATE
INTRODUCTION
This remote control system was developed to provide a safe, reliable,
and user-friendly remote control system. The system operates on
radio frequencies (RF) within a 20’ range using non-directional
signals. The system operates on one of 255 security codes that are
programmed into the transmitter at the factory; the remote receiver
must learn the transmitter code prior to initial use.
OPERATION
1. In order to operate this appliance using the remote, the “ON/
OFF or REMOTE” switch on the control module (to the left of
the burner) must be set to “OFF or REMOTE.”
2. The burner can be turned “ON” or “OFF” using the “ON” and
“OFF” remote buttons.
3. When the burner is turned on, the flame height will default
to high and will remain on high for five seconds before
responding to the “HI” or “LO” remote buttons.
4. The flame height is variable using the “HI and LO” remote
buttons. Press and HOLD “LO” to reduce flame height. Press
and HOLD “HI” to increase flame height. Let go of the button
at the desired flame height.
BATTERY LIFE
Life expectancy of the alkaline batteries in the RCAF-3 TX can be
up to 12 months depending on use of the solenoid function. Check
and replace all batteries annually. The transmitter should operate
with as little as 9.0 volts battery power.

FCC REQUIREMENTS
BATTERY
The transmitter operates with a 12V battery (included) made
specifically for remote controls and electronic lighters. Before
using the transmitter, install the 12-volt (A-23) battery in the battery
compartment.
NOTICE: The manufacturer is not responsible for any radio or
tv interference caused by unauthorized modifications to this
equipment. Such modifications could void the user’s authority to
operate the equipment.
It is recommended that ALKALINE batteries always be used for
longer battery life and maximum operational performance.
MATCHING SECURITY CODES
Each transmitter can use one of 255 unique security codes. It
may be necessary to program (LEARN FUNCTION) the module
to accept the transmitter security code upon initial use, if batteries
are replaced, or if a replacement transmitter is purchased from
your dealer. In order for the module to accept the transmitter
security code, be sure the module is set to “OFF or Remote.”
Press and release the LEARN button on the left side of the
module to accept the transmitter security code, and then press
any button on the transmitter. A beep at the module indicates the
transmitter’s code has been accepted.
The microprocessor that controls the security code matching
procedure is controlled by a timing function. If you are unsuccessful
in matching the security code on the first attempt, wait 1 - 2
minutes before trying again - this delay allows the microprocessor
to reset its timer circuitry - and try up to two or three more times.

MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE
Maintenance
The Decorative Gas Log Set should be thoroughly inspected at
least once a year by a qualified technician.
At the beginning of each season, check for:
•
Chimney flue or vent pipe is drawing properly, and that vent
pipe connections are tight.
•
Blockages at the chimney or vent termination.
•
Creosote and soot build-up in chimney and/or vents (clean if
necessary).
•
Inspect the pilot and burners.
•
Remove dust, cobwebs, pet hair or other debris from the
fireplace.
•
Check for gas leaks. See page 11.
The burner system has been adjusted for proper operation at the
factory. No adjustment is necessary, other than altitude de-rate or
pilot flame.
WARNING
NEVER enlarge valve orifices or burner ports.
Cleaning
Keep the control area, logs and burner area surrounding the logs clean.
The logs can get very hoT— Handle only when cool.
Always keep the appliance area clear and free from combustible
materials, gasoline, and other flammable vapors and liquids.
Never obstruct the flow of combustion and ventilation air. Keep the
front of the appliance clear of all obstacles and materials.
Inspecting Venting System
A vented fireplace venting system is designed and constructed
to develop a positive flow adequate to remove flue gases to the
outside atmosphere.
Any foreign objects in the venting system, may cause flue gases
to flow into the room.
Periodic examination and/or cleaning of the venting system of the
solid-fuel burning fireplace must be done by a qualified service
person. Visually inspect the damper and flue area for excessive
soot build-up. This soot (carbon) may be removed by brushing with
a soft bristle brush.
Sooting
Some sooting of your log set is normal, adding to the appearance
of burned wood. If excessive sooting accumulates, clean the logs
using either of the following options::
A. When the logs are cold, remove logs from burner, brush the
soot off with a brush. Do not use water or soot cleaners.
B. When the logs are cold, remove logs from burner. Take
logs outside and remove soot with an air hose. Refer to
Installation Instructions supplied with logs for re-installation information.
