Maximum input is 26,000 BTU/hr for natural gas and propane for
the CDV36. Maximum input for the BCDV36 is 17,000 BTU/h for
natural gas and propane. When the fireplace is installed at elevations above 4,500ft, and in the absence of specific recommendations from the local authority having jurisdiction, the certified high altitude input rating shall be reduced at the rate of 4%
for each additional 1,000ft.
Maximum output for natural gas is 22,360 BTU/hr at an efficiency of 86% with the fan on, and 22,880 BTU/hr for propane
at an efficiency of 88% with the fan on. The A.F.U.E. (annual
fuel utilization efficiency) rating is 64% for natural gas and
65% for propane. These efficiency ratings apply to Model
CDV36 only.
Minimum inlet gas supply pressure is 4.5 inches water column for natural gas and 11 inches water column for propane.
Maximum inlet gas pressure is 7 inches water column for
natural gas and 13 inches water column for propane. Manifold pressure under flow conditions is 3.5 inches water column for natural gas and 10 inches water column for propane.
This fireplace is approved for bathroom, bedroom and bedsitting room installations and is suitable for mobile home
installation. The natural gas model can only be installed in a
mobile home that is permanently positioned on its site and
fueled with natural gas.
No external electricity (110 volts or 24 volts) is required for the gas system operation.
Expansion / contraction noises during heating up
and cooling down cycles are normal and are to be
expected.
CARE OF GLASS, AND PLATED PARTS
Do not use abrasive cleaners to clean plated parts. Buff lightly
with a clean dry cloth. The CDV36 is factory equipped with
ceramic glass. The BCDV36 is factory equipped with tempered glass. The glass thickness is 3/16" for both models.
Use only replacement glass available from your Continental
dealer. DO NOT SUBSTITUTE MATERIALS. Clean the glass
after the first 10 hours of operation with a recommended gas
fireplace glass cleaner. Thereafter clean as required. DO NOT
CLEAN GLASS WHEN HOT! If the glass is not kept clean
permanent discolouration and / or blemishes may result.
Use only accessories designed for and listed with
your specific fireplace.
Provide adequate ventilation air. Provide adequate
accessibility clearance for servicing and operating
the fireplace. Never obstruct the front opening of
the fireplace.
For safe and proper operation of the fireplace follow
the venting instruction exactly.
Deviation from the minimum vertical vent length can
create difficulty in burner start-up and/or carboning.
Provide a means for visually checking the vent connection to the fireplace after the fireplace is installed.
The fireplace must be installed against finished
walls. Do not install against a vapour barrier or exposed insulation.
Vent lengths that pass through unheated spaces (attics, garages, crawl spaces) should be insulated
with the insulation wrapped in a protective sleeve
to minimize condensation.
Objects placed in front of the fireplace must be kept
a minimum of 48" away from the front face of the
unit.

VENTING
MODELS CDV36 AND BCDV36 MAY BE VENTED EITHER AS A TOP VENT OR A REAR VENT.
REFER TO THE SECTION APPLICABLE TO YOUR INSTALLATION.
VENTING LENGTHS
Use only Wolf Steel or Simpson Dura-Vent Model DV-GS
venting components. Minimum and maximum vent lengths,
for both horizontal and vertical installations, and air terminal locations for either system are set out in this manual
and must be adhered to. For Simpson Dura-Vent, follow
the installation procedure provided with the venting components.
When using Wolf Steel venting components, use only approved Wolf Steel rigid / flexible components with the following termination kits: WALL TERMINAL KIT GD222, or
1/12 TO 7/12 PITCH ROOF TERMINAL KIT GD110, 8/12 TO
12/12 ROOF TERMINAL KIT GD111, FLAT ROOF TERMINAL KIT GD112 or PERISCOPE KIT GD201 (for wall penetration below grade). With flexible venting, in conjunction
with the various terminations, use either the 5 foot vent kit
GD220 or the 10 foot vent kit GD330.
Wolf Steel rigid and flexible venting systems must not
be combined.
Wolf Steel and Simpson Dura-Vent venting systems
must not be combined.
These vent kits allow for either horizontal or vertical venting
of the fireplace. FIGURES 3a, & 5a. The maximum allowable horizontal run is 20 feet. The maximum allowable vertical vent length is 40 feet. The maximum number of 4" vent
connections is two horizontally or three vertically (excluding the fireplace and the air terminal connections) when
using aluminum flexible venting.
For optimum flame appearance and fireplace performance, keep the vent length and number of elbows to a
minimum.
The air terminal must remain unobstructed at all times.
Examine the air terminal at least once a year to verify
that it is unobstructed and undamaged.
Purge all gas lines with the glass door of the fireplace
open. Assure that a continuous gas flow is at the burner
before closing the door.
Under extreme vent configurations, allow several minutes
(5-15) for the flame to stabilize after ignition.
Six (6") inches is the minimum bend radius allowed for
the 7" diameter flexible liner.
For optimum performance it is recommended that all
horizontal runs have a 1 inch rise per foot when using
Wolf Steel flexible vent components.
A terminal shall not terminate directly above a sidewalk
or paved driveway which is located between two single family dwellings and serves both dwellings. Local
codes or regulations may require different clearances.
Do not allow the inside liner to bunch up on horizontal or
vertical runs and elbows. Keep it pulled tight. A 1¼" air
gap all around between the inner liner and outer liner is
required for safe operation. Use a firestop when penetrating interior walls, floor or ceiling.
Minimum clearance to combustible construction from fireplace and vent surfaces:
sides, back, bottom and top of the unit
recessed depth
top, sides and bottom of the vent pipe*
top of the vent pipe - rear vent only*
0 inch
14 inches
1 inch
2 inches
* REAR VENT - A clearance to combustibles of 1" at the
bottom of the vent and 2" at the top must be maintained
during the first 12" of venting when penetrating combustible walls. The firestop spacer (DV-615.044) supplied with
the unit should be used to maintain this clearance. Thereafter a 1" clearance to combustibles may be maintained
using firestop spacer (GD-500.96).

INSTALLATION
WALL AND CEILING PROTECTION
FOR SAFE AND PROPER OPERATION OF THE FIREPLACE,
FOLLOW THE VENTING INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY.
NOTE: REAR EXIT - A clearance to combustibles of
1" at the bottom of the vent and 2" at the top must
be maintained during the first 12" of venting when
penetrating combustible walls. The firestop spacer
(DV-615.044) supplied with the unit should be used
to maintain this clearance. Thereafter a 1" clearance
to combustibles may be maintained using firestop
spacer (GD-500.96).
TOP EXIT - Only a clearance to combustibles of 1"
all around the vent pipe is required.
HORIZONTAL INSTALLATION:
This application occurs when venting through an exterior wall. Having
determined the air terminal location, cut and frame a hole in an exterior wall with a minimum opening as required. See Note above.
(As an alternative to framing, a vent
pipe shield may be installed, ensuring a 1" clearance to
combustibles. See Figure 24.)
FIGURE 23
1. Mark and cut the vent pipe shield to the determined
depth of the combustible wall. Apply a bead of caulking
(not supplied) to the framework or to the shield plate (in the
case of a finished wall) and secure the shield through the
opening to the interior wall. The final location of the vent
pipe shield should maintain the required clearance to the
7" vent pipe / liner. (See note above). Do not fill this cavity
with any type of material. Apply a bead of caulking all around
and place a firestop spacer over the vent shield to restrict
cold air from being drawn into the room or around the fireplace. Ensure that both spacer and shield maintain the
required clearance to combustibles. Once the vent
pipe / liner is installed in its final position, apply sealant
between the pipe / liner and the firestop spacer.
OR
FIGURE 24

VERTICAL INSTALLAFIGURE 25
TION: This application occurs when venting through
a roof. Installation kits for
various roof pitches are
available from your Continental dealer. See Accessories to order the specific kit required.
1. Determine the air terminal location, cut and frame 9½
inch openings in the ceiling and the roof to provide the
minimum 1 inch clearance between the fireplace pipe /
liner and any combustible material. Try to center the exhaust pipe location midway between two joist to prevent
having to cut them. Use a plumb bob to line up the center of
the openings. DO NOT FILL THIS SPACE WITH ANY TYPE
OF MATERIAL. A vent pipe shield will prevent any materials
such as insulation, from filling up the 1" air space around
the pipe. Nail headers between the joist for extra support.
2. Apply a bead of
caulking (not supplied) to the framework or to the Wolf FIGURE 26
Steel vent pipe shield
plate or equivalent
(in the case of a finished ceiling), and secure over the opening in the ceiling.
FIGURE 26. A firestop must be placed on the bottom of
each framed opening in a roof or ceiling that the venting
system passes through. Apply a bead of caulking all around
and place a firestop spacer over the vent shield to restrict
cold air from being drawn into the room or around the fireplace. Ensure that both spacer and shield maintain the
required clearance to combustibles. Once the vent pipe /
liner is installed in its final position, apply sealant between
the pipe / liner and the firestop spacer.
USING FLEXIBLE VENT COMPONENTS

the two ¼" diameter holes in the front left and right corners
of the base. The liners should be flush with the exterior
wall. The air terminal mounting plate may be recessed
into the exterior wall or siding by 1½", the depth of the
return flange.
4. From outside, apply a bead of the high temperature
sealant to the inside of both liners, approximately 1" from
the end of each liner.
5. Holding the air terminal (lettering in an upright, readable position), insert into both liners with a twisting motion
to ensure that both the terminal sleeves engage into the
liners / sealant. Secure the terminal to the exterior wall and
make weather tight by sealing with caulking (not supplied).
EXTENDED HORIZONTAL AIR TERMINAL INSTALLATION
Use the GD220 vent kit and couplers for this application.
If more than one length of liner needs to be used to reach
the fireplace, couple them together as illustrated in
FIGURE 28. Seal the joints using the same procedure as
described in points 2 and 3. The vent system must be
supported approximately every 3 feet for both vertical and
horizontal runs. Use Wolf Steel support ring assemblies,
GA-GD-010.370 or equivalent noncombustible strapping
to maintain the minimum 1" clearance to combustibles as
well as to prevent sagging.

RESTRICTING VERTICAL VENTS:
Model CDV36 Vertical Terminal only:
Vertical terminations running longer than 15 feet may display a very active flame. As this appearance is not desirable, the vent exit must be restricted using restrictor plate
kit, RP-KT. This reduces the velocity of the exhaust gases,
slowing down the flame pattern and creating a more traditional appearance. Specific instructions are included with
the kit.

MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION
In Canada, mobile home installation may be vented horizontally or vertically. In the United States, it may only be
installed vertically. See "Vertical Venting" or "Horizontal Air
Terminal Installation" for installation.
The fireplace is equipped with two 1/4" diameter holes
located in the front left and right corners of the base. For
mobile home installations, the fireplace must be fastened
in place. Use #10 hex head screws, inserted through the
holes in the base to secure. It is recommended that the
fireplace be secured in all installations.
Always turn off the pilot and the fuel supply at the
source, prior to moving the mobile home.
After moving the mobile home and prior to lighting the
fireplace, ensure that the logs are positioned correctly.

Sprinkle vermiculite around the charcoal embers.
Note: Both charcoal embers and vermiculite are not to
be placed on the burner.
GLOWING EMBERS
1. Place the back log (#1) onto the log support tray and in
front of the tabs. The tabs maintain an air space between
the log and firebox back to facilitate combustion air flow.
Ensure that the back of the log rests against the brackets
on the back wall of the firebox.

2. Move the two small logs (#2 & #3) into position, lining
up the studs located on the burner with the holes on the
bottom of the logs. Place the left crossover log (#4) onto
the pin of log #2 and pull the bottom end tight to the grate
rail.

W415-0211 / C / 03.20.01
Tear the embers into pieces and place along the front row
of ports covering all of the burner area in front of the small
logs (#2 & #3). Care should be taken to shred the embers
into thin, small irregular pieces as only the exposed edges
of the fibre hairs will glow. The ember material will only
glow when exposed to direct flame; however, care
should be taken to not block the burner ports.
Blocked burner ports can cause an incorrect flame pattern,
carbon deposits and delayed ignition. PHAZERTM logs glow
when exposed to direct flame. Use only certified "glowing
embers" and PHAZERTM logs available from your Continental dealer.

wire is contained, preventing it from making contact with moving or hot objects.
Because the blower is thermally activated, when
turned on, it will automatically start approximately
10 minutes after lighting the fireplace and will run
for approximately 30-45 minutes after the fireplace has been turned off. Use of the fan increases
the output of heat.
Drywall dust will penetrate into the blower bearings, causing irreparable damage. Care must be
taken to prevent drywall dust from coming into
contact with the blower or its compartment. Any
damage resulting from this condition is not covered by the warranty policy.

LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING: The gas valve has an interlock device which
will not allow the pilot burner to be lit until the thermocouple has cooled. Allow approximately 60 seconds for the
thermocouple to cool.
When lighting and re-lighting, the gas knob cannot be turned
from pilot to off unless the knob is depressed slightly.
1. Stop! Read the above safety information on this label.
2. Turn off all electric power to the fireplace.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS:
P L T
• Turn off all gas to the fireplace.

not use any phone in your building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbour's
phone. Follow the gas supplier's instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
O
FOR YOUR SAFETY READ BEFORE LIGHTING:
A. This fireplace is equipped with a pilot which must be lit
by hand while following these instructions exactly.
B. Before operating smell all around the fireplace area for
gas and next to the floor because some gas is heavier
than air and will settle on the floor
C. Use only your hand to turn the gas control knob. Never
use tools. If the knob will not turn by hand, do not try to
repair it. Call a qualified service technician. Force or
attempted repair may result in a fire or explosion.
D. Do not use this fireplace if any part has been under water.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect
the fireplace and replace any part of the control system
and any gas control which has been under water.
After extended periods of non-operation such as following
a vacation or a warm weather season, the fireplace may
emit a slight odour for a few hours. This is caused by dust
particles in the heat exchanger burning off. In both cases,
open a window to sufficiently ventilate the room.
Purge the gas line with the glass door open. Assure
that a continuous gas flow is at the burner before closing the door.
IH
When lit for the first time, the fireplace will emit a slight
odour for a few hours. This is a normal temporary condition caused by the curing of the logs and the "burn-in" of
internal paints and lubricants used in the manufacturing
process and will not occur again.

- check pressure readings:
Inlet pressure can be checked by turning screw (A) counter-clockwise 2 or 3 turns and then placing pressure gauge tubing over the
test point. Gauge should read 7" (minimum 4.5") water column for
natural gas or 13" (11" minimum) water column for propane. Check
that main burner is operating on "HI".
Outlet pressure can be checked the same as above using screw (B).
Gauge should read 3.5" water column for natural gas or 10" water
column for propane. Check that main burner is operating on "HI".
AFTER TAKING PRESSURE READINGS, BE SURE TO TURN
