Getting Started
Introducing Quadra-Fire Gas Fireplaces
Quadra-Fire direct vent gas fireplaces are designed to operate with all combustion air siphoned from outside of the
building and all exhaust gases expelled to the outside.
The information contained in this Owner’s Manual, unless
noted otherwise, applies to all models and gas control systems. Gas fireplace diagrams, including the dimensions,
are shown in this section.
Pre-installation Preparation
This gas fireplace and its components are tested and safe
when installed in accordance with this Owner’s Manual.
Report to your dealer any parts damaged in shipment,
particularly the condition of the glass. Do not install any
unit with damaged, incomplete, or substitute parts.
The vent system components and trim doors are shipped
in separate packages. The gas logs may be packaged
separately and must be field installed.
Read all of the instructions before starting the installation. Follow these instructions carefully during the
installation to ensure maximum safety and benefit. Failure to follow these instructions will void the owner’s
warranty and may present a fire hazard.
The Hearth & Home Technologies Warranty will be voided
by, and Hearth & Home Technologies disclaims any
responsibility for, the following actions:
• Installation of any damaged fireplace or vent system
component.
• Modification of the fireplace or direct vent system.
• Installation other than as instructed by Hearth & Home
Technologies.
• Improper positioning of the gas logs or the glass door.
• Installation and/or use of any component part not manufactured and approved by Hearth & Home Technologies,
not withstanding any independent testing laboratory or
other party approval of such component part or accessory.
ANY SUCH ACTION MAY POSSIBLY CAUSE A FIRE
HAZARD.
When planning a fireplace installation, it’s necessary to
determine:
• Where the unit is to be installed.
• The vent system configuration to be used.
• Gas supply piping.
• Electrical wiring.
• Framing and finishing details.
• Whether optional accessories—devices such as a fan,
wall switch, or remote control—are desired.
If the fireplace is to be installed on carpeting or tile, or on
any combustible material other than wood flooring, the
fireplace should be installed on a metal or wood panel that
extends the full width and depth of the fireplace.

Installing the Fireplace
Constructing the Fireplace Chase
A chase is a vertical box-like structure built to enclose the
gas fireplace and/or its vent system. Vertical vents that run
on the outside of a building may be, but are not required
to be, installed inside a chase.
CAUTION: TREATMENT OF FIRESTOP SPACERS AND
CONSTRUCTION OF THE CHASE MAY VARY WITH THE
TYPE OF BUILDING. THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE NOT
SUBSTITUTES FOR THE REQUIREMENTS OF LOCAL
BUILDING CODES. THEREFORE, YOUR LOCAL BUILDING CODES MUST BE CHECKED TO DETERMINE THE
REQUIREMENTS FOR THESE STEPS.
Factory-built fireplace chases should be constructed in the
manner of all outside walls of the home to prevent cold air
drafting problems. The chase should not break the outside
building envelope in any manner.
This means that the walls, ceiling, base plate and cantilever floor of the chase should be insulated. Vapor and air
infiltration barriers should be installed in the chase as per
regional codes for the rest of the home. Additionally, we
recommend that the inside surfaces be sheetrocked and
taped for maximum air tightness.
To further prevent drafts, the firestops should be caulked
to seal gaps. Gas line holes and other openings should
be caulked or stuffed with insulation. If the unit is being
installed on a cement slab, we recommend that a layer of
plywood be placed underneath to prevent conducting cold
up into the room.
THE CHASE SHOULD BE CONSTRUCTED SO THAT
ALL CLEARANCES TO THE FIREPLACE ARE MAINTAINED AS SPECIFIED WITHIN THIS INSTALLERS
GUIDE.

Step 3. Installing the Vent System
Identifying Vent Components
A. Vent System Approvals
This model is approved to use DVP-series direct vent
pipe components and terminations (see Figures 4 and 5).
Approved vent system components are labeled for identification. This pipe is tested and listed as an approved component of the fireplace. The pipe is tested to be run inside
an enclosed wall. There is no requirement for inspection
openings at each joint within the wall. There is no required
pitch for horizontal vent runs. NO OTHER VENTING SYSTEMS OR COMPONENTS MAY BE USED.
The vent systems installed on this gas fireplace may include
one, two, or three 90° elbow assemblies. The relationships
of vertical rise to horizontal run in vent configurations using
90° elbows MUST BE strictly adhered to. The rise to run
relationships are shown in the venting drawings and tables.
Refer to the diagrams on the next several pages.
NOTE: Two 45° elbows may be used in place of one 90°
elbow. Rise to run ratios in the vent system must be followed if 45° elbows are used.
This model has vent starting collars on both the top and the

For Vertical Terminations - To locate the vent and install
the vent sections:
To seal the roof hole, and to divert rain and snow from the
vent system:
• Locate and mark the vent centerpoint on the underside
of the roof, and drive a nail through the centerpoint.
• Attach a flashing to the roof using nails, and use a nonhardening mastic around the edges of the flashing base
where it meets the roof.
• Make the outline of the roof hole around the centerpoint
nail.
• The size of the roof hole framing dimensions depend on
the pitch of the roof. There MUST BE a 1-inch (25.4mm)
clearance from the vertical vent pipe to combustible
materials.
• Attach a storm collar over the flashing joint to form a
water-tight seal. Place non-hardening mastic around the
joint, between the storm collar and the vertical pipe.
• Slide the termination cap over the end of the vent pipe
and snap into place.
• Mark the roof hole accordingly.

Review safety warnings and cautions
Placing the Ember Material
• Release the four glass latches on the glass frame. Remove glass door from the unit.
• Glowing Ember material can be placed without removing logs. Place a single layer of dime size and thickness
pieces on exposed area of burner front and burner
center. Starting in front of two center logs place one
row at a time, completely surrounding all ports in front
of middle logs including those that extend under front
logs. DO NOT press ember material down into ports or
place more than a single layer on burner. Do not place
embers on or near ports behind front logs.
CAUTION: DO NOT COVER BURNER PORTS WITH
EMBER MATERIAL.
• Save the remaining ember materials for use during
fireplace servicing.
• Replace the glass door.
• Pull out and latch the glass clips into the glass frame.
• Install a decorative front.
Glass Specifications:
CERAMIC
• Read the Safety and Warning Information section at
the beginning of this Owner’s Manual.
Double-check for gas leaks
• Before lighting the fireplace, double-check the unit for
possible gas leaks.
Double-check vent terminations and front grilles for
obstructions.
• Before lighting the fireplace, double-check the unit for
possible obstructions that could be blocking the vent
terminations or the front grilles.
Double-check for faulty components
• Any component that is found to be faulty MUST BE
replaced with an approved component. Tampering with
the fireplace components is DANGEROUS and voids all
warranties.
A small amount of air will be in the gas supply lines.
When first lighting the fireplace, it will take a few minutes
for the lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the
purging is complete, the fireplace will light and will operate
normally.
Subsequent lightings of the fireplace will not require this
purging of air from the gas supply lines, unless the gas
valve has been turned to the OFF position, in which
case the air would have to be purged.
NOTE: The fireplace should be run 3 to 4 hours on the initial
start-up. Turn it off and let it cool completely. Remove and
clean the glass. Replace the glass and run the fireplace
for an additional 8 hours. This will help to cure the product
used in the paint and logs.
During this break-in period it is recommended that some
windows in the house be opened for air circulation. This will
help avoid setting off smoke detectors, and help eliminate
any odors associated with the fireplace’s initial burning.
Step 12. Lighting the Appliance
You’ve reviewed all safety warnings, you’ve checked the
appliance for gas leaks, you know the vent system is
unobstructed, and you’ve checked for faulty components.

Troubleshooting
With proper installation, operation, and maintenance your gas fireplace will
provide years of trouble-free service. If you do experience a problem, this
troubleshooting guide will assist a qualified service person in the diagnosis
of a problem and the corrective action to be taken. This troubleshooting
guide can only be used by a qualified service technician.
A. Standing Pilot Ignition System
Symptom
Possible Causes
Corrective Action
1. After repeated triggering a. Defective ignitor.
of the red or black piezo
ignitor button, the spark
ignitor will not light the pilot. b. Defective pilot or misaligned
electrode (spark at electrode).
Check the spark at the electrode and pilot. If no spark and electrode
wire is properly connected, replace the ignitor.
c. No gas or low gas pressure.
Check the remote shut-off valves from the fireplace. Usually, there
is a valve near the gas main. There can be more than one (1) valve
between the fireplace and the main.
d. No LP in tank.
Check the LP (propane) tank. You may be out of fuel.
a. Defective thermocouple.
Check that the pilot flame impinges on the thermocouple. Clean
and/or adjust the pilot for maximum flame impingement.
2. The pilot will not stay lit
after carefully following the
lighting instructions.
Using match, light the pilot. If the pilot lights, turn off the pilot and
trigger the red piezo ignitor button again. If the pilot lights, an improper gas/air mixture caused the bad lighting and a longer purge
period is recommended. If the pilot will not light, ensure the gap
at the electrode and pilot is one-eighth (1/8) inch to have a strong
spark. If the gap is OK, replace the pilot.
Ensure that the thermocouple connection at the gas valve is fully
inserted and tight (hand tighten plus 1/4 turn).
Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one millivolt
meter lead wire on the tip of the thermcouple and the other meter
lead wire on the thermocouple copper lead. Start the pilot and hold
the valve knob in. If the millivolt reading is less than 15mV, replace
the thermocouple.
b. Defective valve.
3. The pilot is burning,
a. ON/OFF switch or wires
there is no burner flame,

the valve knob is in the ON
position, and the ON/OFF
switch is in the ON position.
If the thermocouple is producing more than 15 millivolts, replace
faulty valve.
Check the ON/OFF switch and wires for proper connections. Place
the jumper wires across the terminals at the switch. If the burner
comes on, replace the defective switch. If the switch is OK, place the
jumper wires across the switch wires at the gas valve. If the burner
comes on, the wires are faulty or connections are bad.
b. Thermopile may not be gener- If the pilot flame is not close enough physically to the thermopile,
ating sufficient millivoltage.
adjust the pilot flame.
Be sure the wire connections from the thermopile at the gas valve
terminals are tight and that the thermopile is fully inserted into the
pilot bracket.
Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take the reading at
TH-TP&TP terminals of the gas valve. The meter should read 325
millivolts minimum, while holding the valve knob depressed in the
pilot position, with the pilot lit, and the ON/OFF switch in the OFF
position. Replace the faulty thermopile if the reading is below the
specified minimum.
With the pilot in the ON position, disconnect the thermopile leads
from the valve. Take a reading at the thermopile leads. The reading should be 325 millivolts minimum. Replace the thermopile if the
reading is below the minimum.
