are in the same room with the appliance.
• Do not place clothing or other flammable material on or
near the appliance.
• Keep burner and control compartment clean.
• Installation and repair should be done by a QUALIFIED
SERVICE PERSON. The appliance should be inspected
before use and at least annually by a professional service
person. More frequent cleaning may be required due to
excessive lint from carpeting, bedding materials, etc. It
is imperative that control compartments, burners and
circulating air passageways of the appliance be kept
clean.
• WARNING: ANY CHANGE TO THIS HEATER OR ITS
CONTROLS CAN BE DANGEROUS.
Any safety screen or guard removed for servicing an appliance must be replaced prior to operating the heater.
• DO make a periodic visual check of pilot and burners. Clean
and replace damaged parts.
• DO NOT use this room heater if any part has been under
water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to
inspect the room heater and to replace any part of the control
system and any gas control which has been under water.
• Due to high surface temperatures, keep children, clothing
and furniture away.
• Under no circumstances should any solid fuels (wood, coal,
paper or cardboard etc.) be used in this appliance.
• The flow of combustion and ventilation air must not be
obstructed in any way.
• WARNING: Failure to keep the primary air opening(s)
of the burner(s) clean may result in sooting and property
damage.
• Keep appliance area clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
• WARNING: Do not use a blower insert, heat exchanger insert
or other accessory not approved for use with heater.
WARNING
When used without adequate combustion and ventilation air,
heater may give off CARBON MONOXIDE, an odorless,
poisonous gas.
Do not install heater until all necessary provisions are
made for combustion and ventilation air. Consult the written instructions provided with the heater for information
concerning combustion and ventilation air. In the absence
of instructions, refer to the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for Combustion and Ventilation, or
applicable local codes.
This heater is equipped with a PILOT LIGHT SAFETY
SYSTEM designed to turn off the heater if not enough fresh
air is available.
DO NOT TAMPER WITH PILOT LIGHT SAFETY
SYSTEM!
If heater shuts off, do not relight until you provide fresh air.
If heater keeps shutting off, have it serviced. Keep burner
and control compartment clean.
16938-4-1107
CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING MAY LEAD TO
DEATH.
Early signs of carbon monoxide poisoning resemble the flu,
with headache, dizziness and/or nausea. If you have these
signs, heater may not be working properly. Get fresh air at
once! Have heater serviced.
Some people — pregnant women, persons with heart or lung
disease, anemia, those under the influence of alcohol , those
at high altitudes — are more affected by carbon monoxide
than others.
The pilot light safety system senses the depletion of oxygen
at its location. If this heater is installed in a structure having a high vertical dimension, the possibility exists that the
oxygen supply at the higher levels will be less than that at
the heater. In this type of application, a fan to circulate the
structure air will minimize this effect. The use of this fan will
also improve the comfort level in the structure. When a fan is
used to circulate air, it should be located so that the air flow
is not directed at the burner.

SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP-GAS
Propane (LP-Gas) is a flammable gas which can cause fires
and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and
colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions which can protect both you and your family from an
accident. Read them carefully now, then review them point
by point with the members of your household. Someday when
there may not be a minute to lose, everyone's safety will depend
on knowing exactly what to do. If, after reading the following
information, you feel you still need more information, please
contact your gas supplier.
LP-GAS WARNING ODOR
If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.
That's your signal to go into immediate action!
• Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your phone.
Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.
• Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do
that IMMEDIATELY.
• Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.
• LP-Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas such as
basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak, keep
out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until firefighters
declare them to be safe.
• Use your neighbor's phone and call a trained LP-Gas service
person and the fire department. Even though you may not continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do not re-enter
the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
• Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for escaped
gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly
trained LP-Gas service people should repair the leak, then check
and relight the gas appliance for you.
NO ODOR DETECTED - ODOR FADE
Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell the
odor of the chemical put into the gas. You must find out if you
can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease your
ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect your
sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors
in the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the gas odor
or their minds are on something else. Thinking about smelling a
gas odor can make it easier to smell.
The odorant in LP-gas is colorless, and it can fade under some
circumstances. For example, if there is an underground leak, the
movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants
in LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading can occur if
there is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into walls,
masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will take
some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.
LP-Gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could
vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be
more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest gas
odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately
go into action as instructed earlier.
SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER
• Learn to recognize the odor of LP-gas. Your local LP-Gas
Dealer can give you a "Scratch and Sniff" pamphlet. Use it to
find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that
your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LP-Gas
Dealer.
• If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service,
or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gas system. If
you are qualified, consciously think about the odor of LP-Gas
prior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service or
making adjustments.
• Sometimes a basement or a closed-up house has a musty smell
that can cover up the LP-Gas odor. Do not try to light pilot
lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area where
the conditions are such that you may not detect the odor if there
has been a leak of LP-Gas.
• Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of
new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should
be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders
are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks, or
Page 4
reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed to set too
long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which have been out
of service for a time may develop internal rust which will cause
odor fade. If such conditions are suspected to exist, a periodic
sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you have any question about
the gas odor, call your LP-gas dealer. A periodic sniff test of
the LP-gas is a good safety measure under any condition.
• If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gas odorant and you
think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the same
immediate action recommended above for the occasion when
you do detect the odorized LP-Gas.
• If you experience a complete "gas out," (the container is under
no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately. If the
container valve is left on, the container may draw in some air
through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this occurs, some
new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is left open, then
treat the container as a new tank. Always be sure your container
is under vapor pressure by turning it off at the container before
it goes completely empty or having it refilled before it is completely empty.

WATER VAPOR: A BY-PRODUCT OF UNVENTED ROOM HEATERS
Water vapor is a by-product of gas combustion. An unvented room
heater produces approximately one (1) ounce (30ml) of water for
every 1,000 BTU's (.3KW's) of gas input per hour.
Unvented room heaters must be used as supplemental heat (a
room) rather than a primary heat source (an entire house). In most
supplemental heat applications, the water vapor does not create a
problem. In most applications, the water vapor enhances the low
humidity atmosphere experienced during cold weather.
The following steps will help insure that water vapor does not
become a problem.
1. Be sure the heater is sized properly for the application, including
ample combustion air and circulation air.
2. If high humidity is experienced, a dehumidifier may be used
to help lower the water vapor content of the air.
3. Do not use an unvented room heater as the primary heat source
(an entire house).
PROVISIONS FOR ADEQUATE COMBUSTION & VENTILATION AIR
This heater shall not be installed in a confined space or unusually
tight construction unless provisions are provided for adequate
combustion and ventilation air.
The National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 defines a confined space
as a space whose volume is less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per
hour (4.8m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances
installed in that space and an unconfined space as a space whose
volume is not less than 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8m3
per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in
that space. Rooms communicating directly with the space in which
the appliances are installed, through openings not furnished with
doors, are considered a part of the unconfined space.
The following example is for determining the volume of a typical
area in which the CIVF-25 may be located and for determining if
this area fits the definition of an unconfined space.
The maximum input of the CIVF-25 is 30,000 Btu per hour.
Based on the 50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour formula, the
minimum area that is an unconfined space for installation of the
CIVF-25 is 1,500 cubic feet, 50 cubic feet x 30 = 1,500 cubic feet.
To determine the cubic feet of the area in which the CIVF-25 is
to be installed, measure the length, width and height of the area.
Example: The area measures 16 feet in length, 12 feet in width and
8 feet in height, the area is 1,536 cubic feet. The CIVF-25 can be
installed in this unconfined space with no requirement to provide
additional combustion and ventilation air.
Page 6
Warning: If the area in which the heater may be operated is smaller
than that defined as an unconfined space or if the building is of
unusually tight construction, provide adequate combustion and
ventilation air by one of the methods described in the National
Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for Combustion and
Ventilation, or applicable local codes.
Unusually Tight Construction
The air that leaks around doors and windows may provide enough
fresh air for combustion and ventilation. However, in buildings of
unusually tight construction, you must provide additional fresh
air.
Unusually tight construction is defined as construction
where:
a. Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have
a continuous water vapor retarder with a rating of one perm
or less with openings gasketed or sealed, and
b. Weatherstripping has been added on openable windows and
doors, and
c. Caulking or sealants are applied to areas such as joints
around window and door frames, between sole plates and
floors, between wall-ceiling joints, between wall panels, at
penetrations for plumbing, electrical, and gas lines, and at
other openings.
If the CIVF-25 heater is installed in a building of unusually
tight construction, adequate air for combustion, ventilation and
dilution of flue gases shall be provided in accordance with ANSI
16938-4-1107
Check all local codes for requirements, especially for the size and
type of gas supply line required.

Note: Never use plastic pipe. Check to confirm whether your local
codes allow copper tubing or galvanized.
Note: Since some municipalities have additional local codes, it is
always best to consult your local authority and installation code.
Installing a New Main Gas Cock
Each appliance should have its own manual gas cock.
A manual main gas cock should be located in the vicinity of
the unit. Where none exists, or where its size or location is not
adequate, contact your local authorized installer for installation
or relocation.
Compounds used on threaded joints of gas piping shall be resistant
to the action of liquefied petroleum gases. The gas lines must be
checked for leaks by the installer. This should be done with a soap
solution watching for bubbles on all exposed connections, and if
unexposed, a pressure test should be made.
Never use an exposed flame to check for leaks. Appliance must
be disconnected from piping at inlet of control valve and pipe
capped or plugged for pressure test. Never pressure test with
appliance connected; control valve will sustain damage!
A gas valve and ground joint union should be installed in the gas
line upstream of the gas control to aid in servicing. It is required
by the National Fuel Gas Code that a drip line be installed near
the gas inlet. This should consist of a vertical length of pipe tee
connected into the gas line that is capped on the bottom in which
condensation and foreign particles may collect.
The use of the following gas connectors is recommended:
— ANS Z21.24 Appliance Connectors of Corrugated Metal Tubing
and Fittings
— ANS Z21.45 Assembled Flexible Appliance Connectors of
Other Than All-Metal Construction
The above connectors may be used if acceptable by the authority
having jurisdiction The state of Massachusetts requires that a flexible
appliance connector cannot exceed three feet in length.
16938-4-1107
Figure 1
Pressure Testing of the Gas Supply System
1. To check the inlet pressure to the gas valve, a 1/8" (3mm) N.P.T.
plugged tapping, accessible for test gauge connection, must
be placed immediately upstream of the gas supply connection
to the appliance.
2. The appliance and its individual shutoff valve must be
disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of
1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
3. The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping
system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve during
any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test
pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
Attention! If one of the above procedures results in pressures in
excess of 1/2 psig (14" w.c.) (3.5 kPa) on the appliance gas valve,
it will result in a hazardous condition.
Checking Manifold Pressure
Natural gas will have a manifold pressure of approximately 3.5"
w.c. (.871kPa) for maximum input or 1.7" w.c. (.423kPa) for
minimum input at the pressure regulator outlet with the inlet
pressure to the pressure regulator from a minimum of 5.0" w.c.
(1.245kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a maximum of
10.5" w.c. (2.614kPa). Propane gas will have a manifold pressure
approximately 10.0"w.c. (2.49kPa) for maximum input or 6.3"w.
c. (1.568kPa) for minimum input at the pressure regulator outlet
with the inlet pressure to the pressure regulator from a minimum
of 11.0"w.c. (2.739kPa) for the purpose of input adjustment to a
maximum of 13.0"w.c. (3.237kPa).
NOTE: The gas control is equipped with a captured screw type
pressure test point, therefore it is not necessary to provide a 1/8"
test point up stream of the control.
A test gauge connection is located downstream of the gas appliance
pressure regulator for measuring gas pressure. The connection is a
1/8 inch 3mm) N.P.T. plugged tapping.

component that is found to be faulty, must be replaced with an
approved component.
Initial Lighting (Figure 14)
Upon completing the gas line or turning the gas valve "ON" after it
has been in the "OFF" position, a small amount of air will be in the
lines. When first lighting the appliance, it will take a few minutes
for the lines to purge themselves of this air. Once the purging is
complete, the appliance will light and operate satisfactorily.
Subsequent lightings of the appliance will not require such purging
if the gas valve is not turned to "OFF."
Standing Pilot Operation
1. Follow the SAFETY and LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS for
standing pilot controls found in this manual and on labels found
attached to the appliance.
Page 14
CAUTION: During the initial purging and subsequent lightings,
never allow the gas valve control knob to remain depressed in
the "pilot" position without pushing the piezo ignitor button
at least once every second.
2. D u r i n g t h e
heating season,
leave the control
valve knob in the
"ON" position.
This will allow
the pilot flame
to remain lit.
Turn the burner
flame on or off with the
appliance ON/OFF rocker
Figure 14
switch, wall switch, remote control kits or 750 millivolt wall
thermostat.
NOTE: The gas control valve allows you to increase or decrease the
height of the main burner flame. The control valve has a pressure
regulator with a knob as shown in Figure 14. Rotate the knob
clockwise to "HI" to increase the flame height and counterclockwise
to "LO" to decrease the flame height.
3. When the heating season is over, turn the on/off switch to "OFF"
and the control valve to "OFF". The system, including the pilot
light, will be shut down.
Maximum and Minimum Input
The gas valve on the appliance allows the input to adjust between
a maximum input of 30,000 to a minimum input of 21,000 Btuh.
Please be advised, the maximum input provides the greatest amount
of yellow flame and ember glow on the log set. The minimum
input substantially decreases the yellow flame and ember glow
on the log set.

PILOT FLAME CHARACTERISTICS
Figure 15 shows a correct pilot flame pattern. The correct flame
will be blue and will extend beyond the thermocouple and thermopile. The flame will surround the thermocouple and thermopile
just below the tip. A slight yellow flame may occur where the pilot
flame and main burner flame meet. Figure 16 shows an incorrect
pilot flame pattern. The incorrect pilot flame is not touching the
thermocouple or thermopile. This will cause the thermocouple or
thermopile to cool. When the thermocouple cools, the heater will
shut down.
2. Blow air pressure through the holes indicated by the arrows.
This will blow out foreign materials such as dust, lint and spider
webs. Tighten nut B also by grasping nut A.

OPTIONAL BLOWER INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (continued)
Cleaning
The blower wheel will collect lint and could require cleaning once
a year. If the air output decreases or the noise level increases, it
indicates a dirty wheel.
Blower Motor
The blower motor does not have oiling holes. Do not attempt to
oil blower motor.
Wiring
The appliance, when installed, must be electrically grounded in
accordance with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with
the National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70, if an external
electrical source is utilized. This appliance is equipped with
a three-prong [grounding] plug for your protection against
shock hazard and should be plugged directly into a properly
grounded three-prong receptacle. Do not cut or remove the
grounding prong from this plug. For an ungrounded receptacle,
an adapter, which has two prongs and a wire for grounding, can
be purchased, plugged into the ungrounded receptacle and its
wire connected to the receptacle mounting screws. With this wire
completing the ground, the appliance cord plug can be plugged
into the adapter and be electrically grounded.
Page 26
CAUTION: Label all wires prior to disconnection when
servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause improper
and dangerous operation. Verify proper operation after
servicing.
WARNING:
Unplugging of blower accessory will not stop the heater
from cycling. To shut heater off: Turn temperature dial
or thermostat to lowest setting. Turn knob on gas control
to "OFF", depressing slightly. Do not force.
