2. Appliance General Information
The appliance is intended for decorative purposes only.
The chimney should be swept before the appliance is installed, and should be swept
and inspected regularly to ensure that all products of combustion are entering the flue
and there is no excessive build up of soot.
Foreign objects should not be placed on to the appliance or otherwise disturb the fuel
bed. Debris from any source, or soot formed, should be removed from the appliance,
see ‘Appliance Cleaning Instructions’.
The appliance may emit a slight smell for a period of time after commissioning. This is
quite normal and any odours will disperse within a few hours of operation.
The pilot light and flame sensing device installed to the appliance are also atmospheric
sensing devices. The device is not adjustable and must not be disabled. If evacuation
of combustible products is interrupted the device shuts down both the main burner and
pilot light. In the event of a single shut down, do not attempt to re-light the pilot
within three minutes, once three minutes have passed the appliance can be re-started
in accordance with ‘Appliance Start Up / Shut Down Instructions’. In the event of
repeated shut downs, do not use the appliance and have the flue and appliance
checked by a GAS SAFE Engineer. If any part of the pilot assembly needs to be
replaced, including the pilot burner, thermocouple, electrode and injector the
complete assembly must be replaced with an original manufacturer's pilot assembly by
a GAS SAFE Engineer.
Warning – Do not adjust the system.
Warning – Do not disable the flame sensing device.
Warning – Use only OEM parts.
The installation should only be carried out by a GAS SAFE Engineer and in accordance
with national and local regulations for gas. The installation must also be in accordance
with relevant parts of local and national building regulations. For the Republic of
Ireland, reference should be made to IS813 and ICP3 and any guidance notes from Bord
Gais.
Read the instructions carefully before proceeding. Failure to do so could result in an
unsafe installation and may invalidate the warranty.
3. Warning for Fire Guards and Hearths
The appliance is not installed with an integral guard. In normal use consideration may be given
to the use of a fireguard conforming to BS6539 or BS6778, so that the approach to the
appliance is limited such that access to the flame is minimised. It is recommended that a
fireguard conforming to the requirements of BS6539 or BS6778 be installed if the appliance is
used in the presence of young children, the elderly or the infirm. For some countries a noncombustible hearth must be installed in front of the appliance in accordance with national
regulations (e.g. United Kingdom). In addition, the installer is to advise the user against placing
combustible material directly in front of the appliance.
4. Appliance Unpacking Instructions
Carefully examine the carton for damage before unpacking. If the appliance is
damaged in anyway DO NOT INSTALL. Contact 01325-327221. Once installation has
begun it is accepted that the fire was in perfect condition. Remove the appliance and
examine its general condition. If satisfied by the condition of the product, proceed
with the installation.

5. Remote Control System
Take some time to learn about the remote system fitted to this fire. Review the circuit diagram to
familiarise yourself with the system components.
This gas fire is operated by a remote control system which is powered by “AA” batteries. The fire is
supplied with a remote hand set which will switch the fire on/off and regulate the flame up/down.
There are options available to add a manual wall switch and to convert to mains power supply.
Handset: In order to operate the appliance the handset must be pointed directly at the magic eye
(line of sight) on the fire. The hand set has a child safe feature to avoid accidental lighting. Please
read “lighting the fire” section later in this handbook before operating the appliance.
The remote is powered by 6 x ‘AA’ Batteries in the appliance and a 9V battery in the handset.
It is recommended that only “Lithium” batteries are used in the remote system to ensure a long
life.
Note: that if the fire shuts down it is automatically set in “safe mode” to reactivate the fire press
button #1 only on the handset. This will cause a beep. Now the fire can be lit again using the
standard start-up sequence.
The remote system has a fault diagnosis system built in which is indicated by a number of beeps.
Review the “fault diagnosis” section later in this manual for the code. A warning sound when the
internal batteries become low will e heard however if the batteries are totally dead there will be no
sound. If the appliance fails to operate on the hand set change the batteries in both the appliance
and the hand set as this is the most common cause of failure.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All CVO fires are given a 100% full function test at the factory before being
shipped. Never remove the heat shield or any wires from the black box or the remote system.
All connections are required. There is no need to remove any connections from the remote system
during installation. Removal of any connections will result in the warranty being invalidated and no
claims will be accepted for the unit not working.

6. Appliance Installation Instructions
(To be carried out by a Registered GAS SAFE Engineer only – failure to comply with
this requirement will invalidate the Warranty)
6.1. General
GATHER: This appliance is fitted with a gather unit which must be remaining attached
to the appliance. Removal of the gather will render the appliance dangerous. The
gather must be sealed with high temperature silicone fire cement.
FLUE: The minimum flue requirement is 3 metres of 250mm diameter. Usage with any
smaller flue will render the appliance highly dangerous.
Clearances between the appliance and all combustible materials must conform to
national regulations.
The appliance must be installed and used in accordance with these instructions. Prior
to installation, ensure that the local distribution conditions (identification of the type
of gas and pressure and the adjustment of the appliance) are compatible.
The builders opening or fireplace opening must be constructed of a non-combustible
material.
Any flue damper plate or flue restrictor must be removed or fixed permanently in a
fully open position, or shall only be installed in accordance with national regulations.
The chimney must be swept before the appliance is installed. If the chimney is not
swept, there is a possibility that loose debris may fall onto the burner unit which may
result in damage and unnecessary service costs.
Before the appliance is installed a flue test in accordance with national regulations
should be carried out. The appliance must not be installed unless the chimney or flue
length is at least the length and size indicated in the section marked ‘Appliance
Technical Data’ earlier in this manual.
Under no circumstances should the appliance be installed and operated within any
premises without an adequate flue or chimney system.
A room ventilation air supply must be installed in accordance with national regulations
and should be checked regularly to ensure that it is free from obstruction.
Soundness of the input gas line should be checked prior to installing the appliance.
The gas connection must be made in accordance with national regulations.
An isolation valve (stop tap) must be installed adjacent to the appliance, which when
closed allows the complete burner and control assemblies to be disconnected for
maintenance and repair in accordance with national regulations.
Adjustment of the pilot assembly is not usually required, however during installation
the assembly may become misaligned. The gap between the pilot electrode and the
pilot should be 3.5 – 4.5mm allowing the spark to bridge the gap between the electrode
and the gas outlet on the pilot head, at the point where gas is ejected.

6.2 Burner Ventilation Requirements
This fire is designed to be used as a “trimless” fire. For the fire to work correctly additional burner
ventilation must be planned to provide fresh air into the burner box. This work should be planned
before starting to install the fire. This additional burner air must be routed from “within the room
the fire is installed” directly in to the burner box. Failure to observe this will result in serious heat
damage to the remote system. This will not be covered by the warranty. The normal way to do this is
by creating a ducted space behind the plasterboard from the skirting level. The air vent must be at
least 20mm deep and the full width of the burner flame. If it is positioned differently the flame will
become unstable. The system must be sealed so that air can only travel in one direction from the
room into the burner box and cannot travel up the back of the enclosure. If the air is not sealed
flame reversal will occur. See the images below

6.3 Appliance Installation
Before commencement of any building works we recommend that a thorough structural
survey is carried out of the installation location, ensuring that any work done will be
safe.
A flat, level, opening must be prepared in accordance with local building regulations to
the following specification:-
The Fire Wave is supplied as a complete unit with built in remote and gather unit.
There should be no reason to dismantle the appliance. The only connection required is
an 8mm gas supply.
The Fire Wave does not have its own support lintel. Therefore in some cases it may be
necessary to install a lintel above the opening. Check with building regulations if in
doubt.
This Fire is supplied with the gather unit attached. This is required in order to ensure
the fire operates safely and inline with the CE approval.
The enclosure is then inserted into the opening and positioned so that the front edge is
aligned with the final face of the wall. Please note that if a wall cover (plaster board)
is to be added this must be taken into account.
A suitable gas supply is required within the opening. The appliance is supplied with an
isolation ball valve. This should be retained and used as the connection point.
The complete unit is inserted into the building opening and the gas supply fed into the
burner tray via one of the holes provided. All other holes must be blocked with a
suitable metal tape.
Great care must be taken when handling the fire burner to ensure the battery remote
system does not become damaged.
Any gaps between the enclosure, gather and flue system should be sealed with fire
cement to ensure a closed system.

6.4 Gas Supply
GAS FLOW RATES:
NATURAL GAS
1.6m3/Hour
LPG/PROPANE
0.6m3/Hour
This is a high power [14KW] appliance and needs a very strong and constant
gas supply. Before installing this appliance the gas pipe work needs to be
reviewed to ensure the gas pressure at the appliance, when on full, remains at
20mBar at all times.
If the appliance is run with a gas supply which is not suitable it will render the
appliance unreliable and possibly dangerous.
Once the fire is connected, the gas must be tested “at the test point within the
fireplace enclosure” as per the commissioning sequence:
1. Other appliances in the house off.
a. Standing Pressure – Off
b. Inlet Pressure – On Pilot
c. Inlet Pressure – On Full
2. Other appliances in the house on.
a. Standing Pressure – Off
b. Inlet Pressure – On Pilot
c. Inlet Pressure – On Full
3. The pressure must remain at +/- 1mBar of the value stated on the
dataplate.

6.4 Final Checks before lighting the fire.
NOTE – REMOTE SYSTEM
The appliance is operated by 6 x “AA” batteries. It is advised that Lithium batteries
are used to increase life. The fire is supplied with a Handset and a Magic Eye. There is
the option to add a Manual Wall Switch. This must be fitted during installation. If this
has not been ordered then call 01325-327221 and request the part.
NOTE – APPLIANCE SEALED TO CHIMNEY CAVITY.
The enclosure must be sealed to the fireplace opening to create a closed system which
only allows air to be drawn from the room by the chimney. Take special care to ensure
there are no openings below the fireplace box where air can be drawn down the back
side of the enclosure and from the burner tray.
The Gather must be used.
NOTE – BURNER TRAY HOLES
The appliance is supplied with additional holes in the burner tray to allow gas pipe
access from various points. Once the gas pipe is fitted all other burner access points
must be covered using aluminium tape. Failure to do this may result in incorrect flame
activity and damage to the remote system. Any resulting damage caused by incorrect
installation is not covered by the warranty.
GAS LEAKS
With the isolation valve in the appliance switched off, test the gas line from the meter
to the appliance to ensure there are no gas leaks in the system. The appliance is
bubble tested at 150mBar before leaving the factory.
ROOM VENTILATION
The room must have an air vent in the room to provide a minimum of 100cm2 fresh air
from the outside?
BURNER VENTILATION
Has the fire been designed with burner air provided? See page 7.
NOTE - USING LPG BOTTLES
This is a high power fire and uses a high volume of gas. In very cold conditions LPG can
take longer to vent into gas and this may cause a drop in pressure which will shut the
appliance down. If this appliance is to be connected to LPG bottles it is recommended
that 2 x 47Kg bottles with a changeover valve is used. This must also include a
regulator.
WARNING: HEAT SHIELD.
IF THIS APPLIANCE IS OPERATED WITHOUT THE REMOTE HEAT SHIELD IN PLACE AND
SECURLY FITTED TO THE BURNER TRAY SERIOUS DAMAGE WILL OCCUR TO THE
REMOTE CONTROL SYSTEM. ANY RESULTING DAMAGE WILL NOT BE COVERED BY CVO
FIRE AND IS NOT COVERED BY THE WARRANTY.

7. Appliance Commissioning Instructions
The burner inlet flow rates are factory set and sealed. Under no circumstances should these
settings be changed. The aeration is fixed. Do not change the burner aeration.
Step 1:
The appliance is supplied with a pressure test elbow and gas tap. Connect an 8mm
gas supply to the tap and test for leaks. Remove the screw from the test point within
the appliance and connect a manometer.
Step 2:
The appliance requires 6 x “AA” Lithium batteries to operate. Using lower quality
batteries is not advised. The Battery Pack is disconnected when supplied to increase
the life of the batteries. Reconnect the battery by plugging in the socket.
Step 3:
The appliance is supplied with an Infra-Red Remote Control Unit which is operated
via a hand set and magic eye positioned on the right hand side of the enclosure.
There is also a manual wall switch.
Step 4:
Light the appliance as shown in section 7. Once lit turn the appliance onto the full
setting and read the gas pressure from the manometer attached to the inlet test
point elbow – WITHIN THE APPLIANCE.
Step 5:
It is very important that this test is performed as stated to ensure the appliance is
safe and reliable. The inlet supply pressure must be within (+/- 1mb) of the pressure
stated on the Data Plate. For example a 20mBar NG appliance must read between
19mbar and 21mBar. Light all other gas appliances in the house, including central
heating systems and check the inlet pressure again. The pressure must still be within
the tolerance of +/- 1mb. Now turn off all the other gas appliances and turn the
appliance down to pilot only, the pressure must still be in the tolerance of +/- 1mb.
These 3 tests will ensure the fireplace is safe.
Page 11 of 42
Step 6:
IF FAILED: If it is not possible to maintain the pressure at the required level,
TRANSCO, BORD GAIS or the propane supplier must be called to adjust the governor
to the house before the appliance can be commissioned further.
Step 7:
IF PASSED: Disconnect the pressure gauge, replace the pressure test point sealing
screw and test the appliance for gas soundness. Insert the front shelf.
Step 8:
Turn the appliance to the maximum setting. Leave the appliance for 10 minutes and
then test that all the products of combustion are entering the flue by traversing the
perimeter of the fireplace opening or canopy using a smoke generator e.g. smoke
matches.
Step 9:
The customer should be shown in detail how to operate the appliance and the
installation and user manual given to the customer. The customer must also be made
aware that the appliance must be serviced every 12 months and that chimney or flue
system should be checked regularly to ensure the appliance operates at optimum
performance.
Step 10: The warranty card is to be completed by the registered engineer who has
commissioned the appliance. This is to validate the warranty. The card must then be
given to the customer for return to the factory.
If you have any questions, or the appliance is not operating correctly, please consult the fault
diagnosis chart and then contact the CVO Fire technical team BEFORE you leave the
installation. As part of our customer service procedure you will be asked for the appliance
serial number on the front cover of this booklet and the GAS SAFE registration number of the
Engineer. If the appliance is not installed in strict accordance with these instructions CVO Fire
cannot be held responsible for any damage caused and reserve the right to charge for any
corrective work. The warranty covers defective components or manufacture not incorrect
installation or site specific conditions.

1. Appliance General Information
The appliance is intended for decorative purposes only.
The chimney should be swept and inspected regularly to ensure that all products of
combustion are entering the flue and there is no excessive build up of soot.
Foreign objects should not be placed on to the appliance or otherwise disturb the fuel
bed. Debris from any source, or soot formed, should be removed from the appliance,
see ‘Appliance Cleaning Instructions’.
The appliance may emit a slight smell for a period of time after commissioning. This is
quite normal and any odours will disperse within a few hours of operation.
The pilot light and flame sensing device installed to the appliance are also atmospheric
sensing devices. The device is not adjustable and must not be disabled. If evacuation
of combustible products is interrupted the device shuts down both the main burner and
pilot light. In the event of a single shut down, do not attempt to re-light the pilot
within three minutes, once three minutes have passed the appliance can be re-started
in accordance with ‘Appliance Start Up / Shut Down Instructions’. In the event of
repeated shut downs, do not use the appliance and have the flue and appliance
checked by a GAS SAFE Engineer. If any part of the pilot assembly needs to be
replaced, including the pilot burner, thermocouple, electrode and injector the
complete assembly must be replaced with an original manufacturer's pilot assembly by
a GAS SAFE Engineer.
Warning – Do not adjust the system.

6. Appliance Cleaning Instructions
Before any cleaning, ensure the appliance is switched off and has been given time to cool
down. The appliance can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner, soft cloth and stainless steel
cleaner. Always clean in the direction of the grain of the steel.
Before cleaning the appliance turn off the Fire unit and allow it to cool for a number of
hours. Before using any cleaning materials test a small area first to ensure compatibility
with the appliance finish. CVO Fire cannot be held responsible for damage caused by
cleaning the appliance.
Burner Bar / Deposits
It is normal for the burner bar to show a redish or white deposit. This is caused by biproducts of the gas being burnt and is unavoidable. This can be remedied by using a stove
paint like Hotspot High Temperature Stove Paint which is sold in 100ml cans online
for approx £7. Similar products may also be available from major DIY stores or fireplace
retailers. It may be required to paint the burner bar every 6 months or so depending on
usage.
Cleaning the Gas Fire Burner and Enclosure
The most effective method of dust/debris removal is achieved with the aid of a vacuum
cleaner however; great care must be taken to ensure that the pilot assembly is not
touched. Using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush head gently remove any debris/dust
from inside the enclo0sure and around the burner unit. Once all of the dust and debris has
been removed the surfaces can be cleaned with the use of a soft cloth and a hand held
“stainless seel” cleaner which is available from most supermarkets.
Removing spillages
This appliance has an electronic remote system. Where a liquid has been spilled onto the
surface of the fire or enclosure DO NOT USE THE APPLIANCE – contact your installer to

CVO Fire recommends that the appliance is serviced every 12 months by a GAS SAFE
Engineer.
8. Appliance Spare Parts
There are no user serviceable parts on the appliance.
Page 39 of 42
9. Battery Remote System – Replacing the Batteries
Main Appliance Batteries
Always use either Lithium batteries or Alkaline Batteries. If the remote alarm indicates that the
batteries are “flat” do not use the appliance. Ensure the appliance is switched off and has had time
to “cool down”. Lift the front shelf of the appliance taking care not to scratch the sides of the
enclosure. The battery pack will be visible. Lift the battery pack from its holder and remove the flat
batteries. Before fitting new ones wait at least 10 minutes. This allows the black box to lose the
memory of the old batteries and will ensure a long life from the new ones. Insert 6 x AA batteries in
the correct order and replace the battery pack in the holder, ensuring that no wires are
disconnected. Refit the front shelf. Warning: Never use old batteries. Always replace as a full set of
new batteries as the black box will reduce the life of the pack.
WARNING : THE BATTERY COVER MUST ALWAYS BE CLOSED
Page 40 of 42
Hand Set Batteries
Turn over the hand set and unclip the battery cover. Fit a new 9V battery and refit the battery
cover. The appliance should now operate normally.
NOTE: CVO Fire recommends that only high quality batteries are used in this appliance. Lithium
batteries provide the longest life.
10. Battery Remote System – Fault Diagnosis
This fire is operated via a battery remote system with Ni Cad Batteries. This system
has a built in fault diagnosis system. A faulty is indicated via a number of beeps
separated by a small gap and repeated.
Refer to “Fault Diagnosis” section within the Installation Section for comprehensive
advice of faults and the alarm sequence.
11. Appliance Warranty
Every unit has been designed, manufactured and type tested to ensure that it conforms
to the current national and European DFE (decorative fuel effect gas fire) legislation.
In our UK factory all appliances are given a full function test and are inspected for
quality before being carefully packed and shipped.
Once your appliance is installed please take time to complete the warranty card and
return to CVO Fire. This card should show the name and registration number of the GAS
SAFE Engineer who has installed and commissioned the appliance.
The warranty supplied is for 12 months and covers defective manufacture and
components only. The warranty does not cover damage due to incorrect installation or
site specific problems (Chimney, Flue, Gas Pressure, etc.).
The fire has inbuilt safety devices that will shut down the appliance if the gas pressure
is not sufficient or if the chimney becomes blocked. Therefore before making a
warranty claim and to avoid costly call out charges please ensure the gas pressure to
the appliance is at the stated pressure at all times and the chimney has not become
blocked.
12. LPG Bottles
This is a high power fire and uses a high volume of gas. LPG is liquid in its normal state
and vents off gradually into a gas. Due to the volume of gas used it is recommended
that a minimum of 2 x 47Kg bottles with a changeover valve is used. In very cold
conditions LPG can take longer to vent into a gas. In extreme cold conditions LPG can
take longer to vent into a gas and this may cause a drop in pressure which will shut the
appliance down unexpectedly due to the safety devices fitted. If this happens please
check the bottles. If this appliance is to be connected to LPG bottles a suitable
regulator and piping must be used. Please consult the Calor website for advice on
connecting, using and changing LPG bottles.
