EF28 Electric Fireplace
• Electrical Connection
A 15 amp, 120 Volt, 60 Hz circuit with a properly grounded outlet is required. Preferably, the fireplace will be on a dedicated circuit as other appliances on the same
circuit may cause the circuit breaker to trip or the fuse to blow when the heater is in
operation. The unit comes standard with a 6 ft. (1.8 m) long three wire cord, exiting
the left side of the fireplace. Plan the installation to avoid the use of an extension
cord. Extension cords are for temporary use only. If an extension cord must be used,
it must be UL/CSA certified and constructed of two current carrying conductors with
ground. A heavy duty extension cord with the shortest length possible for the connection is recommended and must not be longer than 50 ft. (15.2 m). Do not coil or
cover the extension cord.
Electrical outlet wiring must comply with local building codes and
other applicable regulations to reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock
and injury to persons.
Do not use this fireplace if any part of it has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the fireplace and
replace any part of the electrical system which has been under water.
• Grounding Instructions
This heater is for use on 120 volts. The cord has a plug as shown at A in Figure 1. An
adapter as shown at C is available for connecting three-blade grounding-type plugs
to two-slot receptacles. The green grounding lug extending from the adapter must
be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. The
adapter should not be used if a three-slot grounded receptacle is available.

EF28 Electric Fireplace
• Direct (Hard) Wiring Electric Fireplace
This instruction is intended as a guide for replacing the power cord supplied with the
electric fireplace with direct (hard) wiring.
NOTE: When direct wiring this appliance, it must be connected to a 15 Amp dedicated circuit breaker or fuse in the electrical panel of the dwelling. The cable between
the circuit/fuse panel and the fireplace must meet all local and national codes, and in
no case shall the wires be less than 14 gauge.
1. Make sure the power to the unit has been turned off, the master ON/OFF switch
located behind the lower door of the appliance on the right hand side is turned
off, the power cord is unplugged from the wall outlet and the appliance has
cooled down.
2. Follow Steps 1 through 7 in “Light Bulb Replacement” section.
3. Remove two (2) screws per side for the brackets and the fireplace screen to be
removed and set aside.
4. Remove one (1) screw per side of the bulb housing assembly to remove and set
aside.
5. Remove four (4) screws per side for the right side cover. This allows the cover
to be opened for access to where the power cord enters the strain relief and the
compartment.
6. Using wire cutters, gently cut the power cord inside the compartment, flush to
the strain relief. Also, repeat for the power cord outside the compartment.
7. Back inside the compartment, gently separate the three (3) wires of the power
cord into separate wires by gently pulling them apart. DO NOT use a knife, as
this may expose bare conductors. The hot wire is connected to the main power
switch and is terminated with a straight terminal connector. The neutral wire is
connected at the circuit board’s screw clamp terminal block. The green ground
wire is attached to the ground stud. Use a 5/16” (8 mm) socket or wrench to
remove the brass nut, brass lock washer and brass cup washer and set aside.
Remove and discard the cut power cord ground wire.
8. Using a slotted screwdriver, remove the 7/8” (22 mm) diameter knockout above
the old power cord strain relief.
9. Route the power cable from the breaker/fuse panel through the 7/8” (22 mm)
diameter hole. Secure the cable to the compartment using an approved clamp.
The wires should extend approximately 6” (152 mm) into the compartment.
10. Connect the ground wire from the power cable by wrapping it around the ground
stud of the unit and securing it firmly with the brass cup washer, brass lock washer and brass nut.
11. Using wire strippers, strip approximately 5/8” (15 mm) from the ends of the hot
and neutral wires. Using an approved wire nut, connect the hot lead (black) of the
power cable to the power cord wire that ends at the main power switch. Similarly,
using another wire nut, connect the neutral wire (white), of the power cable to the
power cord ending at the screw clamp terminal block of the circuit board. It is recommended that the wire nuts be taped to the wires, using electrical tape, as an
extra safety measure.
12. For extra safety measure, visually check and fix the wire routing appropriately.
Refer to the wiring diagram on the unit or in the instruction manual if any wires
have been dislodged.
13. Turn the power to the unit on at the breaker/fuse panel. Place the appliance into
operation and check to make sure all of the systems are working properly.
10010019
WARNING: This
procedure must
be conducted by
a qualified electrician, in accordance with
National and local codes. In
the U.S.A., the installation
must conform to the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
No. 70. In Canada, the
installation must conform
to the current CSA C22.1
Canadian Electrical Code.
WARNING: Make
sure the power to
the unit is off, and
the power cord is
unplugged from the wall outlet before proceeding with
this conversion. Failure to
do so may result in property
damage, personal injury or
loss of life.
WARNING: Make
sure the power to
the power cable
has been turned
off at the breaker/fuse panel
before proceeding.

Included with your fireplace are black/gray river stones and a plastic form of ember
lava rocks. Depending on your preference, and for more choices of decorative effects, either one of these may be placed on the existing plastic form of ember lava
rock that is pre-installed in the fireplace. For the river stones, stack them on the ember bed towards the center and below the simulated flame for best effect. To remove
the front glass, open the lower door, unlatch the glass trim assembly, pull towards
you and lower the glass trim down and out. (Fig. 3)

• Thermal Protection
The fan heater is protected from high heater temperatures due to airflow restrictions
by a temperature limit switch. Some of these restrictions may be due to accumulated dust or debris restricting air flow to the heater. If the limit switch is tripped, cool
instead of warm air is the result. Turn off and unplug power to the unit and allow it to
cool to the touch to investigate the cause of air flow restriction. It may take up to 5
minutes for the heater to cool down before the limit switch resets. Refer to the Maintenance section for access to the fan heater.

• Care and Cleaning
������
������
Always disconnect the appliance
from the main power supply and allow to cool������������������
before any cleaning operation.�������������
����
Metal painted parts may be����
cleaned using a clean, damp cloth. Never use any abrasive cleaners and chemical agents as these may damage the paint finish. Cleaning of
the screen diffuser is to be done using only water and a lint free cloth. DO NOT use
any abrasive household cleaners as these products will damage the diffusing screen.
• Service
Always disconnect the appliance from the main power supply and allow it to cool
before any servicing operation.
The motors used on the fan heater and flame blower are pre-lubricated for extended
bearing life and require no further lubrication. However, periodic cleaning/vacuuming of the appliance and around the air intake and exhaust is recommended. For
service, unit must be removed form the cabinet prior to removal of trims and brackets
for access to the motors and electronics. Refer to Figures 6 to 9 for access to the
fan heater, flame blower, ribbon effect and circuit board. Other replacement parts are
also accessible this way.
