6.0 REQUIREMENTS
This appliance is designed to be wall mounted using the mounting bracket and fixings provided. The wall should be relatively flat
and not interfere with any of the ventilation slots in the rear panel.
The wall must be structurally sound and of a material capable of withstanding moderate heat. Finished plaster, conventional
wallpaper, dry-lined plaster board are examples of suitable materials. Materials such as flock, blown vinyl, embossed paper and
cloth wall coverings which are sensitive to even small amounts of heat should be avoided, as some discolouration may occur.
It should be noted that the appliance creates warm convected air currents. These currents move heat from the room
surroundings to, and up the wall surfaces adjacent to the heater.
Installing the heater next to these types of wall coverings or operating the heater where impurities in the air, (such as tobacco
smoke) exist, may slightly discolour wall finishing.
If the appliance is to be mounted on a dry lined or timber framed construction then the integrity and ability of the wall to

carry the weight of the appliance must be confirmed. It is important in these circumstances that any vapour barrier
and/or structural members of the house frame are not damaged.
If you are unsure of the ability of the wall to carry the weight and/or which type of wall fixing to use, you should take
professional advice and obtain the correct fixings. Alternatively, find a more suitable wall location.
DO NOT
• mount on a ceiling or floor
• recess any part of the appliance into the wall, or run the supply cable under carpets
• site any electrical equipment e.g. plasma screen TV sets etc, on the wall below the appliance
• site in a position where curtains or drapes could cover the appliance, or other soft materials could cover e.g. below a coat
rack
• site behind an opening door where mechanical impact/damage could occur
• site where the supply cable would become a trip hazard
• sit, stand or forcefully pull on the appliance
• obstruct, cover or force items into the openings
• use the heater to dry clothes
• site/use in an outdoor location(s)
7.0 CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS

8.0 INSTALLING THE APPLIANCE
CAUTION: DO NOT CONNECT THE APPLIANCE TO THE
ELECTRICAL SUPPLY AT THIS TIME.
Focal Point Fires plc. assumes absolutely no responsibility for injuries and damages
that may occur due to improper installation or handling.
Remove any protective film coatings from the finished/decorative surfaces of the
appliance, if any. After having selected the final mounting position of the appliance
taking into account the integrity of the wall the firebox of the appliance may be
secured to the wall.
To ensure customer safety, be sure to design the installation so that the strength of
both the wall and any wall fixings used are sufficient. The appliance should not be
installed until all wet plastering and/or dry wall sanding and wall painting has been
completed. Do not block the ventilation holes of the appliance. The wall onto
which the appliance is installed must be flat. Install only on a vertical surface. Avoid
sloped surfaces. Installation onto anything other than a vertical wall may result in
fire, damage or injury.
If the appliance is to be mounted on the inner leaf of a conventional cavity brick
wall, or a solid wall, then the wall plugs and fixing screws provided may be used.
Depending on the condition of the wall it may be necessary to use additional
fixings. In this situation, any additional fixings and wallplugs should be of the same
size and type as the ones provided.
WARNING
The wall where the appliance is to be
installed must be capable of
long-term support of the total load of
the appliance. Measures should also
be taken to ensure sufficient strength
to withstand the force of
earthquakes, vibration and other
external forces. Plasterboard alone is
not considered to be a structural
material. It is not recommended to
rely on plasterboard fixings alone to
support the weight of the appliance.
Figure 1


If the appliance is to be mounted on a dry lined wall or a timber framed
construction wall then efforts should be made to fix in at least two positions
vertically, into one of the wooden studs, or supporting wooden members of the
wall using two of the fixing screws provided. If this is not achievable then the wall
should be strengthened using appropriate building materials.
If there is no alternative than to rely on some plasterboard fixings then special cavity
screw fixings or hollow wall anchors will be required which are not supplied with
this product. These should be constructed from metal and not plastic and of the
design indicated (Figure 1). For further guidance for wall fixing in timber framed
buildings refer to any relevant local codes of practice.
For optimum viewing install the fire out of direct sunlight. Ensure that the bracket is
level by using a spirit level whilst marking out the hole positions. Fix the wall
bracket using the plugs and screws provided. Carefully lift the heater up ensuring

that the top rear ledge of heater engages with the wall bracket and is sitting
centrally. This process should be carried out by two people to avoid injury or
damage to property or the appliance.
Gently bring the heater down against the wall. Mark the lower fixing bracket one
fixing hole position on the wall, remove the heater. Drill the wall and insert the wall
plug. Refit the heater to the wall and fasten the bottom fixing bracket to the wall
using the screw provided to permanently fix the heater in place (Figure 2).
Place the front surround over the front of the fire aligning the slots in the brackets
at each side of the front panel with the lugs on the sides of the fire (Figure 3). Again
two people will be required for this operation.
Check that the fan outlet, mounted underneath the appliance, is not covered or
obstructed in any way. Ensure the power to the fire is switched ON.

10.0 SAFETY CUTOUT SYSTEM
GB IE
This product has one non-self-resetting overheat protection device (thermal cut-out) which will activate if the air inlets or outlets
are obstructed. For safety reasons the fire will NOT switch on again automatically, the following procedure must be carried out
before the fire can be operated.
NOTE: The visual effect will remain operational if the cutout is activated, only the fan heater is prevented from working.
Switch OFF the appliance at the wall socket or outlet. Leave the fire OFF for a period of no less than 10 minutes, ensuring all
obstructions are removed. Switch the appliance ON at the wall. Ensure the appliance is turned ON at the control switches. If
the fire fails to operate correctly, repeat the above procedure. If an attempt to switch on the appliance is made before the safety
cutout has reset, the appliance may cutout for a further period of time. If the sequence has been followed correctly and the
appliance still fails to function, check the fuse in the wall outlet. If this is not the cause, call an electrician or maintenance engineer.

14.0 TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Fire is not switching on
Fire is not emitting any heat
Fire shuts off after a period of time
Fire seems noisy
Remote is not operating
Ensure mains switch is on
GB IE
Replace the fuse in the plug
The fire is fitted with an energy saving thermostat. If the temperature in the room
is higher than the temperature selected on the fire, then the thermostat will stop
the heater from turning on. For example, if the room temperature is 22ºc or above
and the fires heater is set at 22ºc, then the heater will not be required until the
room temperature drops below 22ºc. If this is the case select a higher temperature
setting than the room’s temperature and the heater will begin to operate.
The safety cut-out may have operated. Switch your fire off, leave for two minutes
and then switch back on.
Check that the temperature is not set onto the lower settings. If the room is
warm enough the thermostat will stop the fire switching the heat on.
Check that the chimney/flue is blocked off.
There is a level of noise when the flame effect is in use, caused by a motor that
helps generate the effect. This noise will be heard when there is no other
background noise.
There is a higher level of noise associated with the heater motor; this is due to
the air flow required when heat has been selected.
Check or replace batteries.
