Appliances for Manufactured Homes and Recreational Vehicles”, and “Gas Fired Appliances for Use at High Altitudes”.

B. Glass Specifications

Hearth & Home Technologies appliances manufactured with tempered glass may be installed in hazardous locations such as bathtub enclosures as defined by the Consumer Product

Safety Commission (CPSC). The tempered glass has been tested and certified to the requirements of ANSI Z97.1 and

CPSC 16 CFR 1202 (Safety Glazing Certification Council

SGCC# 1595 and 1597. Architectural Testing, Inc. Reports

02-31919.01 and 02-31917.01).

This statement is in compliance with CPSC 16 CFR Section

1201.5 “Certification and labeling requirements” which refers to 15 U.S. Code (USC) 2063 stating “…Such certificate shall accompany the product or shall otherwise be furnished to any distributor or retailer to whom the product is delivered.”

Some local building codes require the use of tempered glass with permanent marking in such locations. Glass meeting this requirement is available from the factory. Please contact your dealer or distributor to order.

D. High Altitude Installations

U.L. Listed gas appliances are tested and approved without requiring changes for elevations from 0 to 2000 feet in the

U.S.A. and Canada.

When installing this appliance at an elevation above 2000 ft, it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller size. Input rate should be reduced by 4% for each 1000 ft above a 2000 ft elevation in the U.S.A., or 10% for elevations between 2000 and 4500 ft in Canada. If the heating value of the gas has been reduced, these rules do not apply. To identify the proper orifice size, check with the local gas utility.

If installing this appliance at an elevation above 4500 ft (in

Canada), check with local authorities.

WARNING

Do NOT use this appliance if any part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the appliance and to replace any part of the control system and any gas control which has been under water.

Note: This installation must conform with local codes. In the absence of local codes you must comply with the

National

Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1-latest edition in the U.S.A. and the CAN/CGA B149 Installation Codes in Canada.

Getting Started

A. Design and Installation Considerations

These appliances must be installed outdoors.

The Dakota 42-B Series outdoor gas fireplace is designed for outdoor use. It may also be installed in screened porches and lanais that meet these minimum requirements:

• Minimum porch area - 96 square feet

• Minimum ceiling height - 84 in.

A minimum of two walls can be screened but must be open to outside ventilation.

• Minimum screen area - 64 square feet

• Minimum screen top height - 80 in.

Refer to Section 3.B. for clearances.

CAUTION

Check building codes prior to installation.

• Installation MUST comply with local, regional, state and national codes and regulations.

• Consult insurance carrier, local building, fire officials or authorities having jurisdiction about restrictions, installation inspection, and permits.

When planning an appliance installation, it’s necessary to determine the following information before installing:

• Where the appliance is to be installed.

• Gas supply piping.

• Electrical wiring.

• Framing and finishing details

.

Moisture Resistance:

This outdoor fireplace will shed moderate amounts of water, but is not waterproof. Water and condensing water vapor may enter the chase under certain conditions.

The fireplace will not perform as an exterior wall. Moisture penetration must be considered for construction that places the fireplace in structure walls or on moisture sensitive surfaces.

When installed on exterior walls: Hearth & Home Technologies recommends that the fireplace chase be constructed outside the structure’s weather envelope. Where the platform meets the wall, use a flashing detail similar to that required for attached decks. Chase platforms, including hearths should slope away from the structure at 1/8 in. to

1/4 in. per foot. The fireplace can be shimmed level.

When installed on surfaces where water may collect or

cause damage: Hearth & Home Technologies recommends that a drainage pan be placed under the unit. This can be constructed of metal, adhesive polymer membrane (such as ice and water shield) or other suitable materials. A means of drainage out of the pan such as tubes or weep holes should be provided. A slope of 1/8 in. to 1/4 in. per foot towards the drain port is suggested. The fireplace can be shimmed level.

Hearths should slope away from the front of the fireplace and chase at 1/8 in. to 1/4 in. per foot. Spark strips must be on top of any combustible hearth materials used for moisture management.

C. After the Appliance is Lit

Initial Break-in Procedure

When you light the appliance, you may notice that it produces heat which does have an associated odor or smell. If you feel this odor is excessive it may require the initial three to four hour continuous burn on high followed by a second burn up to 12 hours to fully drive off any odor from paint and lubricants used in the manufacturing process. Condensation of the glass is normal

CAUTION

• Prevent accidental appliance operation when not attended.

• Unplug or remove batteries from remote switch if absent or if appliance will not be used for an extended period of time.

• Property damage possible from elevated temperatures.

Note: This appliance should be run three to four 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 appliance for an additional 12 hours. This will help cure the products used in the paint and logs.

CAUTION

Smoke and odors are released during initial operation.

Smoke and odors may be irritating to sensitive individuals.

WARNING

Fire Risk

Combustible materials may ignite.

D. Frequently Asked Questions

Issue

Condensation on the glass

Blue flames

Odor from appliance

Film on the glass

Metallic noise

Is it normal to see the pilot flame burn continually?

Solutions

This is a result of gas combustion and temperature variations. As the appliance warms, this condensation will disappear.

This is a result of normal operation and the flames will begin to yellow as the appliance is allowed to burn for 20 to

40 minutes.

When first operated, this appliance may release an odor for the first several hours. This is caused by the curing of the paint and the burning off of any oils remaining from manufacturing.

This is a normal result of the curing process of the paint and logs. Glass should be cleaned within 3 to 4 hours of initial burning to remove deposits left by oils from the manufacturing process. A non-abrasive cleaner such as gas fireplace glass cleaner may be necessary. See your dealer.

Noise is caused by metal expanding and contracting as it heats up and cools down, similar to the sound produced by a furnace or heating duct. This noise does not affect the operation or longevity of the fireplace.

In an Intellifire ignition system it is normal to see the pilot flame, but it should turn off when ON/OFF is turned off.

In a standing pilot system the pilot will always stay on.

Troubleshooting

With proper installation, operation and maintenance your gas appliance 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. Intellifire Ignition System

Symptom

1.

The ignitor/module makes noise, but no spark.

Possible Causes

A.

Incorrect wiring.

2.

Pilots won’t light, there is no noise or spark.

B.

Loose connections or electrical shorts in the wiring.

C.

Ignitor gap is too large.

D.

Faulty module.

A.

Dead Batteries

B.

A shorted or loose connection in wiring configuration or wiring harness.

C.

Improper wall switch wiring.

D.

Module not grounded.

Corrective Actions

Verify “S” wire (white) for sensor and “I” wire (orange) for ignitor are connected to the correct terminals on the module and the pilot assembly. Reversed wires at the module may cause the system to make a sparking noise, but the spark may not be present at pilot hood.

Verify there are no loose connections or electrical shorts in wiring from module to pilot assembly. The rod closest to the pilot hood should be ignitor. Verify connections underneath pilot assembly are tight; also verify the connections are not grounding out to the metal chassis, pilot burner, pilot enclosure, mesh screen if present, or any other metal object.

Verify gap of ignitor to pilot hood. The gap should be approximately .17 in. or 1/8 in.

Turn ON/OFF rocker switch or wall switch to OFF position. Remove ignitor wire “I” from module. Place ON/OFF rocker switch or wall switch in ON position. Hold ground wire about 3/16 in. away from “I” terminal on module. If there is no spark at “I” terminal, module must be replaced. If there is a spark at “I” terminal, module is fine. Inspect pilot assembly for shorted sparker wire or cracked insulator around electrode.

Check or replace D cell batteries.

Remove and reinstall the wiring harness that plugs into module. Verify there is a tight fit. Verify pilot assembly wiring to module. Remove and verify continuity of each wire in wiring harness.

Verify wall switch is wired correctly.

3.

Pilot lights but continues to spark, and main burner will not ignite. (If the pilot continues to spark after the pilot flame has been lit, flame rectification has not occurred.)

4.

Pilot sparks, but pilot will not light.

E.

Faulty module.

A.

A shorted or loose connection in sensor rod.

B.

Poor flame rectification or contaminated sensor rod.

C.

Module is not grounded.

D.

Damaged pilot assembly or dirty sensor rod.

E.

Faulty module.

A.

Correct gas supply.

B.

Ignitor gap is too large.

C.

Module is not grounded.

D.

Module voltage output/ valve/pilot solenoid ohms readings.

Verify black ground wire from module wire harness is grounded to metal chassis of appliance.

Turn ON/OFF rocker switch or wall switch to OFF position. Remove ignitor wire “I” from module. Place ON/OFF rocker switch or wall switch in ON position. Hold ground wire about 3/16 in. away from “I” terminal on module. If there is no spark at “I” terminal module must be replaced. If there is a spark at “I” terminal, module is fine. Inspect pilot assembly for shorted sparker wire or cracked insulator around electrode.

Verify all connections to wiring diagram in manual. Verify connections underneath pilot assembly are tight. Verify connections are not grounding out to metal chassis, pilot burner, pilot enclosure or screen if present, or any other metal object.

Verify flame is engulfing sensor rod. If the pilot assembly does not have a ground strap, consider installing one to increase flame rectification. Verify correct pilot orifice is installed and inlet gas specifications are met. Flame carries rectification current, not the gas. If flame lifts from pilot hood, the circuit is broken. A wrong orifice or too high an inlet pressure can cause pilot flame to lift. The sensor rod may be contaminated.

Clean sensor rod with emery cloth.

Verify that module is securely grounded to metal chassis of appliance. Verify that the wire harness is firmly connected to module.

Verify that ceramic insulator around the sensor rod is not cracked, damaged, or loose.

Verify connection from sensor rod to white sensor wire. Clean sensor rod with emery cloth to remove any contaminants that may have accumulated on sensor rod. Verify continuity with a multimeter with ohms set at lowest range.

Turn ON/OFF rocker switch or wall switch to OFF position. Remove ignitor wire “I” from module. Place ON/OFF rocker switch or wall switch in ON position. Hold ground wire about 3/16 in. away from “I” terminal on module. If there is no spark at “I” terminal, module must be replaced. If there is a spark at “I” terminal, module is fine.

Inspect pilot assembly for shorted sparker wire or cracked insulator around electrode.

Verify that incoming gas line ball valve is “open”. Verify that inlet pressure reading is within acceptable limits, inlet pressure must not exceed 14 in. w.c.

Verify that spark gap from ignitor to pilot hood is .17 in. or 1/8 in.

Verify module is securely grounded to metal chassis of appliance.

Replace module.

D. Warranty

Outdoor Lifestyles by Hearth & Home Technologies™

Warranty

Hearth & Home Technologies (“HHT”) extends the following warranty for all Outdoor Lifestyles by HHT™ brand products (“Products”) that are purchased from an HHT authorized dealer.

WARRANTY COVERAGE:

HHT warrants to the original owner of the Product at the site of installation, and to any transferee taking ownership of the Product at the site of installation within one year following the date of original purchase, that the Product will be free from defects in materials and workmanship at the time of manufacture. After installation, if covered components manufactured by HHT are found to be defective in materials or workmanship during the applicable warranty period, HHT will, at its option, repair or replace the covered components. This warranty is subject to conditions, exclusions and limitations as described below.

WARRANTY PERIOD:

The warranty period runs for one year, beginning on the earlier of: (i) the date of invoice for the Product;

(ii) in the case of new home construction, the date of first occupancy of the residence or six months after the date of sale of the Product by an HHT authorized dealer, whichever occurs first; or (iii) the date 24 months following the date of Product shipment from HHT, regardless of the invoice or occupancy date.

WARRANTY CONDITIONS:

• This warranty only covers Products that are purchased through an HHT authorized dealer or distributor. A list of HHT authorized dealers is available on the HHT branded websites.

• This warranty is only valid while the Product remains at the site of original installation.

• Contact your installing dealer for warranty service. If the installing dealer is unable to provide necessary parts, contact the nearest HHT authorized dealer or supplier. Additional service fees may apply if you are seeking warranty service from a dealer other than the dealer from whom you originally purchased the Product.

• Check with your dealer in advance for any costs to you when arranging a warranty call. Travel and shipping charges for parts are not covered by this warranty.

WARRANTY EXCLUSIONS:

This warranty does not cover the following:

• Changes in surface finishes as a result of normal use. As a heating appliance, some changes in color of interior and exterior surface finishes may occur; this is not a flaw and not covered under warranty.

• Damage to printed, plated, or enameled surfaces caused by fingerprints, accidents, misuse, scratches, melted items, or other external sources and residues left on surfaces from the use of abrasive cleaners or polishes.

• Repair or replacement of parts that are subject to normal wear and tear during the warranty period. These parts include: paint, firebricks, grates, flame guides and the discoloration of glass.

• Minor expansion, contraction, or movement of certain parts causing noise. These conditions are normal and complaints related to this noise are not covered by this warranty.

D. Warranty (continued)

• Damages resulting from: (1) failure to install, operate, or maintain the Product in accordance with the installation instructions, operating instructions, and listing agent identification label furnished with the Product; (2) failure to install the Product in accordance with local building codes; (3) shipping or improper handling; (4) improper operation, abuse, misuse, continued operation with damaged, corroded or failed components, accident, or incorrectly performed repairs; (5) inadequate ventilation, negative pressure or environmental conditions, including, without limitation: hail, snow, ice, fallen branches, flooding, water damage and fading of color; (6) use of fuels other than those specified in the operating instructions; (7) installation or use of components not supplied with the Product or any other components not expressly authorized and approved by

HHT; (8) modification of the Product not expressly authorized and approved by HHT in writing; and/or (9) interruptions or fluctuations of electrical power supply to the Product.

• Non-HHT venting components, hearth components or other accessories used in conjunction with the Product.

• Any part of a pre-existing fireplace system in which an insert or a decorative gas appliance is installed.

• The Product’s capability to heat the desired space. Information is provided to assist the consumer and the dealer in selecting the proper appliance for the application. Consideration must be given to the Product’s location and configuration and environmental conditions.

This warranty is void if:

• The Product has been over-fired or operated in atmospheres contaminated by chlorine, fluorine, or other damaging chemicals. Over-firing can be identified by, but not limited to, warped plates or tubes, rust colored cast iron, bubbling, cracking and discoloration of steel or enamel finishes and cracking or spalling of refractory or cementitious materials.

• The Product is subjected to prolonged periods of dampness, condensation, ice or snow.

• There is any damage to the Product or other components due to water or weather damage which is the result of, but not limited to, improper chimney or venting installation.

LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY:

Repair or replacement in accordance with the provisions of this warranty will be the owner’s exclusive remedy for and will constitute HHT’s sole obligation under this warranty, under any other warranty

(express or implied), or in contract, tort or otherwise; provided, however, that if HHT is unable to provide repair or replacement in an expedient and cost effective manner, HHT may discharge all such obligations by refunding the purchase price of the Product. No employee, agent, dealer, or other person is authorized to give any warranty on behalf of HHT. TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW, HHT MAKES NO OTHER

WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR

FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. HHT WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL

OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF DEFECTS IN OR USE OF THE PRODUCTS. Some states do not allow exclusions or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so these limitations may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific rights; you also may have other rights, which vary from state to state. The duration of any implied warranty is limited to the duration of the warranty period specified herein.
