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.
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.
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. 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.

Note: Never use plastic pipe. Check to confirm whether your
local codes allow copper tubing or galvanized.
Note: 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
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!
NOTE: 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.
On direct ignition valves, hex plugs may be replaced with
hose fittings for pressure checks, then reinstalled before
operating fireplace.
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
(3.5kPa).
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 (3.5kPa).
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.

INSTALLATION
Framing and Finishing
1. Choose unit location.
2. Frame in fireplace with a header across the top. It is
important to allow for the finished face thickness when
setting the depth of the frame. See Figures 9 & 11.
3. Attach fireplace to framing using (4) adjustable nailing
flanges. Preset depth to suit facing material (adjustable
to 1/2", 5/8" or 3/4" depths).
4. Use (8) 1/2" hex-head screws supplied in hardware
package to screw through slotted holes in nailing flanges,
then screw into pre-drilled holes on fireplace side. Measure
from face of fireplace to face of the nailing flanges to
determine final depth.
Install the Fresh Air Kit - BVA1
A fresh air kit is available as an optional feature with this
appliance. The fresh air kit helps to decrease the amount
of room air taken by utilizing outside air for combustion. It is
strongly recommended that it be installed. Installation of the
fresh air kit should be performed at the framing stage of the
fireplace installation.
The fresh air kit installs on the left side of the fireplace.
To install the BVA1 fresh air kit, refer to the installation
instructions provided with the kit.
Note: The outside air kit can terminate at any level with
the exception that it must terminate at least 1 ft below the
vent termination cap. The fresh air kit inlet hood should be
positioned at least 2 ft above the ground level, in a manner
that will not allow snow, leaves, etc. to block the inlet.
WARNING
Exhaust products of gasoline engines are hazardous.
The outside air must not be taken from a garage
space, attic spaces, basements, or above the roofing
where other heating appliance, fans, or chimneys
exhaust or utilize the air.
Framing (Figure 11)
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 11 for minimum framing dimensions.

VENTING
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 vent system, gas
piping for the appliance, Fresh Air Kit, and the electrical wiring.
(The fan option is available for louvered models only. Electric
ignition models will require electrical service to junction box).
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 (4) corner supports. (Example: Four (4) concrete
masonry blocks.) These supports must be positioned so
they contact all four (4) perimeter edges on the bottom
of the unit.
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.
NOTE: Size of the roof hole dimensions depend on the pitch
of the roof. There must be a 1 inch clearance (25mm)
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 14 and 15.

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.
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.
A removable panel or other means must be provided in the
enclosure for visual inspection of the flue connection.
NOTE: This also pertains to vertical vent systems installed
on the outside of the building.
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.
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.
NOTE: 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.
WARNING
This appliance must not be connected to a chimney
flue servicing a separate solid fuel or gas fuel burning
appliance.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
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.
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 (1) to two
(2) 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.
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.
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.
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.
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such
purging if the gas valve is not turned to “OFF.”
Pilot Flame (Figure 22)
The thermopile (standing pilot) tips should be covered with
flame.
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.
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 wall
switch or remote controls.
3. When the operating season is over, turn the wall switch
or remote to “OFF” and the control valve to “OFF”. The
system, including the pilot light, will be shut down.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS (CONT'D)
standing pilot Operating Instructions
The fireplace is equipped with a 15 foot length of wire that
can be used to connect the valve to a wall switch (installer
provided) or remote control receiver.
See instructions packed with each of the following optional
switches or controls for proper installation, operation, and
maintenance.
Wall Switch, FWS-1 (optional)
On millivolt valve models, a 15' wall switch wire is included.
Connect the two leads to a wall switch (installer supplied).
See Figure 23.
FRBC Battery Operated Remote Control
To connect the FRBC remote to the millivolt gas valve on
your "B-Vent" Fireplace, disconnect one wire terminal lead
(wall switch wire) from gas valve, seperate/split wall switch
wire lead approximately 18 inches. Cut the removed lead
12 inches long and strip both cut ends. After stripping and
baring the wire ends, connect the two stripped ends to the
remote receiver. Reconnect the 1/4" insulated wire terminal
(short 18" wire) to the gas valve wire terminal. See Figure 23.
Millivolt Control
The valve regulator controls the burner pressure which
should be checked at the pressure test point. Turn captured
screw counter clockwise 2 or 3 turns and then place tubing
to pressure gauge over test point (Use test point “A” closest
to control knob). After taking pressure reading, be sure and
turn captured screw clockwise firmly to re-seal. Do not over
torque. Check for gas leaks.
Millivolt thermopile is self generating. Gas valve does not
require 24 volts or 110 volts.
Check System Operation
Millivolt system and all individual components may be
checked with a millivolt meter 0-1000 MV range.
It is important to use wire of a gauge proper for the length
of the wire:

STANDING PILOT TROUBLESHOOTING
With proper installation and maintenance, your new 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 (1) 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 thermopile.
—Check that pilot flame impinges on thermopile. Clean
and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame impingement.
—Ensure the thermopile connections at the gas valve
are fully tight.
3. Pilot burning, no gas to burner, valve knob “ON.”
a. Wall switch, remote control or wires defective.
—Check 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 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.
Page 20
c. Defective valve.
—Turn valve knob to ON. Place Remote/Off/On switch

VERIFYING INPUT RATE OF CONVERTED FIREPLACE
The input of the fireplace must be checked as follows:
1. Turn off all other gas appliances. Clock the gas meter and
determine the number of seconds required to consume one
cubic foot of gas.
2. 3600 ÷ time (in seconds) = cu. ft. per hour.
3. Then cu. ft. per hour x heating value of gas = input rate
(BTU/Hr). On installation without gas meters, check manifold
for proper pressure.
Note: The rate noted on the data plate is measured after 45 minutes
of continuous operation and adjusted for test conditions such as
temperature, and barometric pressure. The above procedure is a
check for correct conversion only.
PILOT ORIFICE CONVERSION
12. Locate the pilot assembly.
13. Pull upward on the round pilot flame hood to remove.

IPI ELECTRONIC SYSTEM OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
5.25 VDC ELECTRONIC CONTROL VALVE
1.
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 Continuous 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 position) to the
CPI (right position). See Figure 24.
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.
AC/DC Adapter
An AC/DC adapter is located in the Instruction Packet. To install,
connect the adapter to the mating female connector located near
the gas valve. Run the adapter plug out one of the side openings
of the insert in a similar manner as the blower power cord, then
plug the adapter into a 120V receptacle.

3.
Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for
Intermittent Pilot controls found in this manual, and on labels
found in the control compartment located in the lower cavity
of the appliance.
During the operating season (or in power outage periods),
it is recommended that the pilot remain in the CPI (standing
pilot mode) to reduce cold start issues, and/or conserve
battery backup power during a power outage.
The gas valve has inlet and outlet pressure taps as shown
in Figure 24. Refer to pages 8 and 9 for gas pressure
requirements.
OPTIONAL REMOTE CONTROLS
Optional remote controls are available for use with this appliance.
Place the remote receiver either in a wall outlet box with
extended wiring, on the fireplace hearth, behind the left side
surround panel, or in the control compartment area as far forward
in the insert as possible.

in accordance with the dimension shown in the reference chart
for the appropriate model fireplace.
PILOT ORIFICE CONVERSION
12. Locate the pilot assembly.
13. Pull upward on the round pilot flame hood to remove.
14. Using a 5/32" Hex Allen wrench, remove the pilot orifice, then
replace with the new pilot orifice marked #35.
IMPORTANT: Failure to install the correct orifice will result in unit
over-firing that could overheat the appliance and result in a fire.
15. Refer to log placement found in your fireplace installation
manual to place logs onto the burner assembly.
16. Loosen screw and attach a manometer or pressure gauge to
the outlet pressure tap of the control valve.
17. Turn on the gas supply. Turn on the electrical supply to the
appliance. Check for gas leaks using a soap and water solution
or leak detection solution. Bubbles indicate a leak that MUST
be corrected. Do not use an open flame to test for gas leaks.
18. Check the air shutter opening. See chart and illustration below.
19. Relight the main burners and verify proper burner ignition and
operation.
20. With the main burner burning, read the pressure on the
manometer or pressure gauge. The pressure on the gauge
should read between 9.8" and 10.2"w.c.
21. Turn off the gas supply. Turn off the electrical supply to the
appliance.
22. Remove the manometer or pressure gage. Tighten the screw
in the pressure tap.
23. Turn on the gas supply. Turn on the electrical supply to the
appliance.
24. Immediately test all gas line connections and the control valve
for gas leaks using a soap and water solution or gas detection
for solution. Bubbles indicate a leak that MUST be corrected.
Do not use an open flame to check for gas leaks.
25. Using a ball point pen, fill out the conversion label that is
supplied with the conversion kit. Place the conversion label
adjacent to the rating plate.
26. Test operation of fireplace once again. Allow the fireplace to
operate for at least 10 minutes and check flame coloration.
Flame on rear of burner should be yellow without any orangecolored tip. Minor adjustment of the air shutter may be
necessary to "tune in" the proper flame color.
The burner flame and pilot flame must be checked for proper
flame characteristics, as outlined in this manual.
VERIFYING INPUT RATE OF CONVERTED FIREPLACE
The input of the fireplace must be checked as follows:
1. Turn off all other gas appliances. Clock the gas meter and
determine the number of seconds required to consume one
cubic foot of gas.
2. 3600 ÷ time (in seconds) = cu. ft. per hour.
3. Then cu. ft. per hour x heating value of gas = input rate
(BTU/Hr). On installation without gas meters, check manifold
for proper pressure.
Note: The rate noted on the data plate is measured after 45 minutes
of continuous operation and adjusted for test conditions such as
temperature, and barometric pressure. The above procedure is a
check for correct conversion only.
PLACEMENT OF GAS CONVERSION LABEL
Conversion label 2139 is to be filled out completely and placed with
the data plate attached near the valve.
If the appliance has not been installed, or a warranty card has not
been returned to Empire Comfort Systems, Inc., check off type of
gas converted to on card (for reference once the unit is installed).
Also, indicate conversion by adding "Conv." behind gas.

MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE
Please Note
It is normal for appliances 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 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
check-ups 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. Vacuum burner compartment.
3. Ignite pilot (if applicable). (See Lighting Instructions)
4. Operate the pilot burner (if applicable). 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 (Optional Kits)
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.
General Glass Information
Only glass approved for use by the manufacturer may be used for
replacement. The glass replacement should be done by a licensed
or qualified service person.
WARNING:
1. The use of substitute glass will void all product warranties.
2. Care must be taken to avoid breakage of glass.
3. Do not abuse the glass by striking or hitting the glass.
For The Homeowner
Annual Inspection
•
Have the fireplace inspected annually before use.
•
More frequent inspection and cleaning may be required if the
fireplace is installed in an area exposed to pet hair or dust,
or to excessive lint from new carpeting or bedding materials.
During The Annual Checkup, The Technician Will:
•
Inspect the pilot (flame safety system) and burner(s) for
proper operation and replace any damaged parts.
•
Vacuum and clean any foreign debris in the firebox that is
not supposed to be there.
•
Inspect the log set (if applicable) and decorative media (if
applicable) for debris or damage.
•
Freshen up the glowing embers if applicable.
•
Replace batteries in the remote transmitter and receiver (if
applicable).
•
Inspect the venting and vent termination cap for damage,
corrosion, sooting, or obstruction and correct if present.
•
In addition, clean and inspect the fireplace following any
remodeling work in your home.

in no more than 30 seconds.
•
Vacuum and clean any foreign debris in the firebox that is
not supposed to be there.
•
Inspect and ensure that the lighting of the main burner
occurs within 4 seconds of the gas valve opening. Visual
inspection should match the information illustrated in the
manual. Inspect primary air openings for blockage.
•
Inspect the log set (if applicable) and decorative media
(if applicable) for debris or damage.
•
Freshen up the glowing embers if applicable.
•
