existing chimney system, thoroughly clean
the masonry or factory built fireplace.
2) The appliance is provided with an opening
on the left hand side of the control compartment. A 1/2" gas supply pipe must be
brought near this inlet hole. (See Diagram
3 on page 11).
Periodically check that the vent is unrestricted and
an adequate draft is present when the unit is in
operation. (See page 8 for spillage test.)
Before installing vent system ensure that the damper
plate is open and secure to prevent the damper plate
from falling down and crushing the liner.
DRAFT HOOD
CONNECTION
1) Attach the vent to the flue collar on the detachable draft hood. The flue collar of the appliance
will fit inside a standard vent and may be fastened directly to the vent by sheet metal screw.
Diagram 1.
2) Before pushing the appliance into position
inside the fireplace, align the draft hood with
the guides on the insert top and pull forward.
While pushing the unit back into place, keep
pulling the draft hood forward until the screw
hole in the spill tube aligns with the screw hole
in the draft hood locking tab on the underside
of firebox top. The screw is secured through the
draft hood locking tab into the front of the spill
tube. (If screw holes do not line up then draft
hood is not positioned correctly.
3) Locate the center point where the vent will
pass through the chimney above the appliance. Move the appliance into the exact
location where it is to be installed. Ensure
that the Insert is level.
4) The installer must provide a valve with a
plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge
connection, immediately upstream of the
gas supply connection to the appliance.
WARNING: Operation of this appliance when not connected to a properly installed and maintained venting
system or tampering with the blocked
vent shutoff system can result in
carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and
possible death.

WARNING: This appliance needs
fresh air for safe operation and must
be installed with provisions for adequate combustion and ventilation
air available to the room in which it
is to be operating.
Follow CAN/CGA B149 (in Canada) or ANSI Z223.1
(in the USA) requirements, and any local codes or
regulations of the enforcing authority.
This unit is approved in Canada for altitude 0 to
2000 ft. with the orifice supplied. For 0' - 4500'
use the optional field conversion kit (Part #400970 for Natural Gas units and Part #400-971 for
Propane units). In USA refer to ANSI Z223.11988, Appendix F, for re-sizing orifice.
Air for combustion is drawn in through the front
of the unit, therefore, the front of the unit must be
kept clear of any obstructions.
VENTING
This appliance is designed to attach to a 4" diameter type B-Vent or listed gas fuel type vent liner
running the full length of the chimney. A minimum
flue height of 12 feet is recommended. B-Vent
must be supported by a vent support - supplied
by vent manufacturer. See chart on this page
for minimum distances from roof.
The Regency Insert incorporates its own internal
draft hood, so no additional external draft hood
is required.

NOTE:
final gas connection should be after
unit is in place to avoid damage to line
when pushing the unit into position.
GAS PRESSURE TEST
The unit is preset to give the correct gas input at the
specified manifold pressures shown on the label.
The maximum gas manifold pressure is:
Natural Gas
3.5" w.c.
Propane
10" w.c.
The manifold pressure is controlled by a regulator
built into the gas control, and should be checked at
the pressure test point. The pressure check should
be carried out with the unit burning and

OPTIONAL
BRICK PANEL
1) Unwrap the brick pattern panels from the protective wrapping.
2) Remove the glass front if it is already installed.
The aeration adjustment rod is attached to the
air shutter which is located just above the orifice
bracket. The rod is used to adjust the aeration
on the main burner without having to take the
appliance apart.
3) Put the rear brick panel flat against the back of
the unit.
The burner aeration is factory set but may need
adjusting due to either the local gas supply, air
supply or altitude.

Note: Any damage due to carboning resulting from improperly setting the aeration controls is NOT covered under
warranty.
Note: Aeration Adjustment should only
be performed by an authorized FPI
Installer at the time of installation or
service.
The smoke should be drawn into the spill tube. If
the smoke is still not drawn into the spill tube, turn
the unit off and check for the cause of the lack of
draft. If necessary, seek expert advice.
Diagram 1
Back Panel
4) Before installing the side brick panels, loosen
the screws for the brick tabs enough so that you
can slide the brick clips on to the screws easily
but that the tabs are secure. For the location
of the side brick tab screws see Diagram 2.
TEST FOR FLUE
SPILLAGE
A " spillage" test must be made before the
installed unit is left with the customer. Follow
the procedure below:
1) Start all exhaust fans in the home and then
close all external doors and windows in the
house.
2) Light the unit and set controls to maximum.
Turn fan off.
3) After five minutes, test that there is a “pull” on
the flue by placing a smoke match, cigarette or
similar device which gives off smoke, in front
of the spill tube. To ensure a valid test, place a
scrap piece of sheet metal (or other noncombustible material) between the spill tube and
the upper louver, this will prevent the natural
convection of the unit from interfering with the
test. See diagram 1.
For wind turbulent sites, a wind cap may remedy
the problem.
Note: The thermally activated safety switch will
sense the change in temperature and shut down
the gas valve in the event of a severe downdraft
or a blocked or disconnected vent. The switch
acts as a safety shut-off to prevent a build-up
of carbon monoxide. If the flue is blocked or
has no "draw", the switch will automatically
shut off the supply of gas within 5 - 10 minutes.
Tampering with the switch can result in carbon
monoxide (CO) poisoning and possible death.
Diagram 2
Brick clip
5) Slide brick panel under brick clips, tighten screws
securing clips to complete installation.
If the heater turns off because of lack of draft
during the spillage test, check for the cause
and if necessary, seek expert advice.
The thermally actuated safety switch will automatically reset after it has cooled off. The switch
will continue to cycle until the draft problem is
corrected. DO NOT BYPASS OR DISCONNECT
THIS SWITCH.

FIRST FIRE
The first fire in your stove is part of the
paint curing process. To ensure that the
paint is properly cured, it is recommended
that you burn your fireplace for at least
four (4) hours the first time you use it
with the fan on. When first operated,
the unit will release an odour caused by
the curing of the paint, the burning off of
any oils remaining from manufacturing.
Smoke detectors in the house may go
off at this time. Open a few windows to
ventilate the room for a couple of hours.
OFF
The glass panel may require cleaning
after the unit has cooled down.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE
GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT.
Note: When the glass is cold and
the appliance is lit, it may
cause condensation and fog
the glass. This condensation
is normal and will disappear
in a few minutes as the glass
heats up.
DO NOT BURN THE APPLIANCE WITHOUT THE GLASS
FRONT IN PLACE.
AUTOMATIC
CONVECTION
FAN OPERATION
The fan operates automatically, turn the knob
on the side of the faceplate to adjust to the
desired speed. The fan will turn on as the stove
comes up to operating temperature. After the
unit has been turned off and the unit cooled to
below a useful heat output range the fan will
shut off automatically.

a
NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS OF
GAS APPLIANCES
It is possible that you will hear some sounds
from your gas appliance. This is perfectly
normal due to the fact that there are various
gauges and types of steel used within your
appliance. Listed below are some examples.
All are normal operating sounds and should
not be considered as defects in your appliance.
Blower:
FPI gas appliances use high tech blowers to
push heated air farther into the room. It is not
unusual for the fan to make a "whirring" sound
when ON. This sound will increase or decrease
in volume depending on the speed setting of
your fan speed control.
Burner Tray:
The burner tray is positioned directly under the
burner tube(s) and logs and is made of a different gauge material from the rest of the firebox
and body. Therefore, the varying thicknesses of
steel will expand and contract at slightly different
rates which can cause "ticking" and "cracking"
sounds. You should also be aware that as there
25
MAINTENANCE
are temperature changes within the unit these
sounds will likely re-occur. Again, this is normal
for steel fireboxes.
5) Keep the area near the appliance clear and
free from combustible materials, gasoline
and other flammable vapours and liquids.
Blower Thermodisc:
When this thermally activated switch turns ON
it will create a small "clicking" sound. This is the
switch contacts closing and is normal.
WARNING: CHILDREN AND
ADULTS SHOULD BE ALERTED
TO THE HAZARDS OF HIGH
SURFACE TEMPERATURE AND
SHOULD STAY AWAY TO AVOID
BURNS OR CLOTHING IGNITION.
YOUNG CHILDREN SHOULD BE
CAREFULLY SUPERVISED WHEN
THEY ARE IN THE SAME ROOM
AS THE APPLIANCE.
Pilot Flame:
While the pilot flame is on it can make a very
slight "whisper" sound.
Gas Control Valve:
As the gas control valve turns ON and OFF, a
dull clicking sound may be audible, this is normal
operation of a gas regulator or valve.
Unit Body/Firebox:
Different types and thicknesses of steel will
expand and contract at different rates resulting
in some "cracking" and "ticking" sounds will be
heard throughout the cycling process.
MAINTENANCE
INSTRUCTIONS
1) Always turn the gas valve to off before
cleaning. For relighting, refer to lighting
instructions. Keep the burner and control
compartment clean by brushing and vacuuming at least once a year.
When cleaning the logs, use a clean soft
paint brush as the logs are fragile and easily
damaged.
2) Clean (never when unit is hot) appliance,
door and louvers with a damp cloth. Never
use an abrasive cleaner. The gold louvers
(and optional gold door) may be scratched
if abrasives are used to clean them.
The heater is finished in a heat resistant
paint and should only be refinished with
heat resistant paint (not with wall paint).
FPI uses StoveBrite Paint - Metallic Black
#6309.
3) Make a periodic check of burner for proper
position and condition. Visually check the
flame of the burner periodically, making sure
the flames are steady; not lifting or floating.
If there is a problem, call a qualified service
person.
CAUTION: ANY SAFETY SCREEN
OR GUARD REMOVED FOR SERVICING AN APPLIANCE MUST BE
REPLACED PRIOR TO OPERATING THE APPLIANCE.
CLOTHING OR OTHER FLAMMABLE MATERIAL SHOULD NOT
BE PLACED ON OR NEAR THE
APPLIANCE.
6) Each time the appliance is lit, it may cause
condensation and fog the glass. This
condensation and fog is normal and will
disappear in a few minutes as the glass
heats up.
Never operate the appliance without the
glass properly secured in place, with
broken glass or with the door open.
Incorrect flame pattern will have small, probably yellow flames, not coming into proper
contact with the rear burner or thermopile.
Top View of pilot flame
If you have an incorrect flame pattern,
contact your FPI dealer for further instructions.
GOLD-PLATED TRIM
The 24 carat gold plated finish on the trim
requires little maintenance, and need only be
cleaned with a damp cloth. DO NOT use abrasive
materials or chemical cleaners, as they may
harm the finish and void the warranty.
Clean any fingerprints off before turning the
unit on. If the top louvers start to discolour,
check the door gasket seal and replace if
necessary.
7) Verify proper operation after servicing.
8) Periodically check the pilot flames, there
should be three strong blue flames approx.
3/4" long - 1 flame to the front burner, and
1 to the thermopile and one to the left. See
diagrams below.
Correct flame pattern has four strong blue
flames: 1 flowing around the thermopile and
thermocouple and 1 reaching towards the
rear burner and 1 toward the front(it does
not have to be touching the burner).
LOG REPLACEMENT
The unit should never be used with broken logs.
Turn off the gas valve and allow the unit to cool
before opening door to carefully remove the
logs. The pilot light generates enough heat to
burn someone. If for any reason a log should
need replacement, you must use the proper
replacement log. The position of these logs
must be as shown in the diagram under Log
Installation.
NOTE: Improper positioning of logs may
create carbon build-up and will alter
the unit’s performance which is not
covered under warranty.
4) The appliance and venting system must be
inspected before use, and at least annually,
by a qualified field service person, to ensure
that the flow of combustion and ventilation
air is not obstructed.
GLASS GASKET
If the glass gasket requires replacement use
7/8" flat glass gasket (Part # 936-243) for the
Bay Front and for the Flush Front.
During the annual service call, the burners
should be removed from the burner tray
and cleaned. Replace the embers but do
not block the pilot.

REPLACEMENT
Your Regency insert is supplied with high temperature, 5 mm Neoceram ceramic glass that
will withstand the highest heat that your unit
will produce. In the event that you break your
glass by impact, purchase your replacement
from an authorized FPI dealer only, and follow
our step-by-step instructions for replacement.
WARNING: do not operate appliance with the glass front removed,
cracked or broken. Replacement
of the glass should be done by a
licensed or qualified service person.
If your fan requires maintenance or replacement,
access to the fan is through the plate on the
rear wall of the firebox. NOTE: the unit MUST
NOT be operated without the fan access
panel securely in place.
CAUTION: Label all wires prior to
disconnection when servicing controls. Wiring error can cause improper
and dangerous operation.
