ASSEMBLY AND INSTALLATION OF
DOUBLE WALL CHIMNEY SYSTEM
Each double wall chimney section consists of a
galvanized outer pipe, a stainless steel inner flue
pipe and a wire spacer. The pipe sections must
be assembled independently as the chimney is
installed. When connecting chimney directly to
the fireplace, the inner flue pipe section must
be installed first with the lanced side up. The
outer pipe section can then be installed over
5 the flue pipe section with the hemmed end
up. Press down on each pipe section until the
lances securely engage the hem on the fireplace
starter. The wire will assure the proper spacing
between the inner and outer pipe sections.

combinations of 12", 18", 24", 36" and 48"
length of double wall pipe (see offset chart
and Figure 8).
2. Chimney weight above offset rests on return elbow. Straps must be securely nailed
to rafters or joists (see Figure 9, details A
and B).
3. Maximum length of pipe between supports (return elbow or 12S-12DM) is 6'
of angle run. Maximum of two 6' angle
run sections per chimney system (see
Figure 10, page 8).
4. All pipe connections between the offset
and return must be secured with two
screws on the outer pipe only (see

FIRESTOP SPACERS (FS-10)
Firestop spacers are required at each point
where the chimney penetrates a floor space.
Their purpose is to establish and maintain
the required clearance between the chimney
and the combustible materials. When the pipe
passes through a framed opening into a living
space above, the firestop must be placed onto
the ceiling from below as shown in Figure 11.
They also provide complete separation from
one floor space to another or attic space as
required by most codes. When the double wall
pipe passes through a framed opening into an
attic space, the firestop must be placed into an
attic floor as shown in Figure 12.

PENETRATING ROOF
To maintain a 2" clearance to the pipe on a
roof with a pitch, a rectangular opening must
be cut.
1. Determine center point through which pipe
will penetrate roof.
2. Determine center point of roof. Pitch is
distance the roof drops over a given span,
usually 12". A 6/12 pitch means that roof
drops 6" for each 12" measured horizontally down from roof rafters.
3. Use roof opening chart (Figure 13, page
9) to determine correct opening length and
flashing required.
4. Remove shingles around opening measured. Cut out this section.

OPTIONAL GAS LINE INSTALLATION
Gas line hook up should be done by your
supplier or a qualified service person.
Note: Before you proceed, make sure your
gas supply is turned off.
Use only a 1/2" black iron pipe and appropriate fittings.
1. Remove knockout indentation on refractory or firebrick wall located above refractory hearth floor. Knockout indentation
must be firmly tapped with any solid object
such as a 1/2" dowel until it is released.
Remove fragmented portions of refractory
(see Figure 19).
2. Remove gas line cover plate located on
either side of fireplace and pull out insulation from gas line conduit sleeve. Save
insulation for reuse. Replace screws.
3. Run a 1/2" black iron gas line into fireplace
through the rear at gas line conduit sleeve (if
using a raised platform, add height). Provide
sufficient gas line into fireplace chamber for
fitting connection (see Figure 20).
Note: Secure incoming gas line to wood
framing to provide rigidity for threaded end.
4. Repack insulation around gas line and into
sleeve opening. Seal any gaps between
gas line and refractory knockout hole with
refractory cement or commercial furnace
cement, Install the gas appliance or cap-off
gas line if desired.
CAUTION: All gas piping
and connections must be tested
for leaks after the installation
is completed. After ensuring
that the gas valve is on, apply
soap and water solution to all
connections and joints. Bubbles
forming show a leak. Correct
all leaks at once. DO NOT USE
AN OPEN FLAME FOR LEAK
TESTING AND DO NOT OPERATE ANY APPLIANCE IF A LEAK
IS DETECTED. LEAK TESTING
SHOULD BE DONE BY A QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSON.
WARNING: Do not operate an
unvented gas log set in this fireplace with the chimney removed.
125467-01B
If you install a decorative gas appliance

BRICK INSTALLATION
BRICK PANEL INSTALLATION
IMPORTANT: Installation of brick
should be done after the fireplace is placed in a permanent
location.
The brick housings are already installed on
the panels. When installing brick housing
panels into fireplace, wear gloves as edges
may be sharp.
1. Beginning with left side panel, place
panel, bottom edge first, at an angle into
fireplace. Secure to bottom of fireplace
with screws provided.
2. Install right side as left side in step 1 using
screws provided.
3. Install back panel and secure back to
sides and bottom of firebox with screws
provided.
4. Using self-tapping screws and a drill, place
screws into large holes in back and side
panels (see Parts, page 26), through wire
mesh and into firebox wrapper to secure.
BRICK INSTALLATION
Each brick housing is stamped with a number
(full size bricks are not stamped). These numbers will help identify the brick when installing.
It is important to install these bricks exactly as
instructed. Press brick firmly into brick housing
until it snaps. Groove line on side of brick will
come in contact with flange on the brick housing. This secures brick into housing (see Figure
22). Smaller bricks may require a small portion
of furnace cement applied to back of brick to
secure it until grouting has been completed.
Bricks are packaged in separate boxes. The
brick matrixes on pages 13 through 17 show
how bricks are packaged and placed for each
size fireplace and the number of bricks per
box. There are 2 extra full bricks included in
Hearth Brick package.
Install bricks one section at a time starting with
hearth panel followed by the rear panel, left
panel and right panel. It is important to install
the bricks in sequence. Please note, full size
bricks are NOT stamped.

BRICK INSTALLATION

GROUTING INSTRUCTIONS
Material provided:
1 or 2 - 10 lb. bags of cement (depending
on model)
1 or 2 - 10 lb. bags of sand (depending
on model)
Material required:
1 - Piping bag
1 - Joints striker
1 - Heavy duty mixing bucket
1 - Trowel
1. Moisten brick surface with damp sponge
or spray bottle just prior to application.
When bricks are wet, any excess grout
mixture on bricks will easily wipe off.
2. In a heavy duty mixing bucket, pour 4 ½
cups of water. Add 5 lbs. (half of a bag) of
sand and 5 lbs (half of a bag) of cement.
Mix together well using a power drill with
mixing wand attachment to a yogurt like
consistency. Not adding enough water can
lead to grout falling out after burning.
3. The overall length of piping bag should be
about 16". If the bag is longer than 16",
cut it down to size by removing end with
larger opening. This will make the bag
easier to handle.
4. Put 2 to 3 cups of grout mixture into piping
bag making sure the smaller opening is
downward and over a moist towel to avoid
spilling. Place a wet towel over the bucket
making sure it is directly on the surface of
grout mixture. This will keep the mixture
moist and it will not dry out before use.
5. Begin grouting by first doing a “Filler
Pass”. This is done by filling the joint about
3/4 full with grout mixture. It is important
to work with only 6 bricks at a time so
grout doesn't have time to set up before
striking.
6. Complete a “Finishing Pass” around 6
bricks you just put filler pass around. This
is done by slowly filling in remainder of the
joint with a thick amount of grout mixture.
18
Mixture should be a little higher than the
brick surface.
7. Using a trowel, remove excess grout mixture by moving trowel in the direction of
the joint. Grout mixture in the joint should
now be flush with brick surface. If not
enough grout is applied into each space,
grout may fall out after burning.
8. Using a joint striker, force grout mixture
into joint and sweep back and forth
until grout is smooth and round. If grout
becomes too shallow, add more grout
mixture with piping bag and strike again.
9. Continue procedure around each group of
6 bricks until an entire panel is finished.
10. Using trowel, scrape in direction of joints
to remove any grout that may have collected around bricks during striking. If
desired, take a moist sponge and lightly
sweep over bricks to remove any grout
that may have gotten on bricks. DO NO
PRESS HARD OR RUB IN A CIRCULAR
MOTION. This will press the grout into
brick and turn brick a different color.
Allow 72 hours before
operating fireplace.

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE GUIDELINES
GLASS DOORS
Glass doors are optional with the fireplace.
When fireplace is in operation, doors must be
fully opened or fully closed position only or a
fire hazard may be created (see Figure 30).
A fireplace equipped with glass doors operates much differently than a fireplace with an
open front. A fireplace with glass doors has a
limited amount of air for combustion.
Excessive heat within the fireplace can result
if too large a fire is built or if combustion air
gate is not completely open. The following
tips should be followed to assure that both
the fireplace and glass door retain their beauty
and function properly. Both the flue damper
and glass doors must be fully opened before
starting fire. This will provide sufficient combustion air and maintain safe temperatures
in firebox.
IMPORTANT: The glass must be allowed to
warm slowly and evenly. The tempered glass
will withstand a gradual temperature rise to
550° F, which is more than a normal fire will
generate. Such materials as pitch/wax laden
logs, very dry mill end lumber and large
amounts of paper or cardboard boxes can
create an excessively hot fire and should not
be burned in this fireplace. Always keep the
fire well back from the doors and never allow
flames to contact the glass.
WARNING: Fireplaces
equipped with glass doors
should be operated only with
doors fully opened or doors fully
closed. Doors, if left partly open,
may draw gas and flame out of
the fireplace opening creating
risks of both fire and smoke.
125467-01B
Cleaning Glass
Clean glass with any commercial glass
cleaner or soap and water. Do not use any
abrasive material to clean glass. Do not clean
glass with any cool water if glass is still hot
from the fire and smoke.
A gas line or gas log lighter may be installed
for the purpose of installing a vented decorative gas appliance incorporating an automatic
shutoff device and complying with the Standard for Decorative Gas Appliances for Installation in Vented Fireplaces, ANSI Z21.60 or
American Gas Association draft requirements
for Gas Fired Log Lighters for Wood Burning
Fireplaces, Draft NO. 4 dated August, 1993.

OUTSIDE AIR AND DAMPER
HANDLE OPERATION
The damper handle, which opens and closes
the damper blade, is located in the upper front
face of the fireplace. Pushing the handle forward and up through the keyway slot will free
damper blade to automatically open. Pushing
the handle forward and down will lock damper
blade closed (see Figure 31).
The outside air kit lever is located at the left
and right hand sides of fireplace (see Figure
32). Lifting lever up will free the outside air
door to open. Pulling lever down will lock
the door.
WARNING: Risk of fire!
Replace grate with FMI PRODUCTS, LLC grate only (see Parts,
page 26). This grate has been
designed to keep the operation of your fireplace safe and
efficient.

PUREFIRE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM
This fireplace is equipped with a PureFire
Emission Control System. The Catalytic
Hood system reduces particulates emissions
in a wood burning fireplace to meet the EPA
Wood-Burning Fireplace Program Phase 2
emission level.
The EPA qualifying label, shown below, will be
affixed to the catalyst. Before lighting the first
fire, remove and maintain this label in a safe
place if needed for permits or building inspection. Prior to beginning installation, contact
your local building official to determine the
need to obtain a permit. For proper operation,
catalyst must be replace every 3 to 5 years.
FUELING GUIDELINES
The fireplace grate must always be secured to
the retaining brackets provided. The position
of the grate must be centered against the back
wall of the firebox.
Burn only dry, seasoned (cured) wood with
less than 20% moisture. Avoid the use of
treated, painted and laminated wood. Never
burn garbage or other foreign materials. Do
not use artificial logs, colored newspaper or
petroleum based fire starters. Avoid wood with
high salt content. All of these materials may
contain compounds which can shorten the
life of the catalyst. Wet or unseasoned wood
may lower catalytic temperatures and result
in inefficient operation.
The catalyst is designed to function at optimum efficiency when the fireplace is burning
clean, dry, cord wood as fireplace fuel. A
simple visual inspection of the chimney during the wood burning process will determine
catalyst performance.
The fuel load should always be placed on
the back of the grate. Use clean dry wood,
seasoned cord wood is the best choice.
Never burn trash, plastics, gasoline, rubber,
industrial solvents, flammable liquids, naptha,
household garbage, material treated with
petroleum products, leaves, paper products,
cardboard or salt driftwood.
Refer to your FMI PRODUCTS, LLC Home-
125467-01B
owner's Guide included with your fireplace for
proper fire building technique and ash removal
procedures. These fueling guidelines must be
followed in order to achieve maximum emissions performance from the PureFire System.
OPERATION
The proper use of a wood burning fireplace
equipped with the catalyst will significantly
reduce the emissions that it produces. Simple
fuel considerations with regard to moisture
content, size, and quality of fuel will help
control the production of wood smoke and
improve the performance of the catalyst and
fireplace efficiency. With proper care, the
catalyst will provide years of fuel savings
and lowered emissions. By following some
simple guidelines, you will ensure maximum
performance and longevity.
PHASE 2 QUALIFIED
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Wood-burning Fireplace Program
Phase 2 Qualified models are cleaner and pollute less than those models that
have not met this emissions level. Exposure to smoke has been associated with
respiratory illness and other health problems. Models that have lower smoke
emissions may reduce your risk.

PUREFIRE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM
Continued
The smoke that is usually seen coming out
of a chimney is essentially a combination of
unburned fuel (carbon and hydrogen) and
moisture in the form of water vapor. The catalyst is a technology that provides secondary
combustion for the wood burning process.
MAINTENANCE
The PureFire System is a maintenance free
technology. Do not attempt to remove or clean
the combustor. The direct flame from the fire
will clean the combustor. Only a certified
technician should remove the unit. To ensure
proper fireplace operation, the PureFire System should be replaced every 3 to 5 years
(see Parts on page 17).
NOTE: Chimney smoke may be visible during
the first 8 to 10 minutes of fireplace operation
when the fire is first getting started and the
final 8 to 10 minutes of operation while the fire
is dissipating. Under normal operating conditions, you should see little or no smoke coming
out of the chimney. If continuous smoke is
visible, make sure only dry seasoned wood
is being burned. If visible smoke continues,
the combustor has ceased to function or there
is thermal crumbling. Call FMI PRODUCTS,
LLC at 1-866-328-4537 for replacement parts.
