Installation & Operating Instructions
The Pinnacle (PDV20) and Stardance (SDVR) Direct
Vent Room Heater, Model Nos. 3920, 3926, 3930, 3936,
3960, 3966, 3970, 3976, 4065, 4070, 4075, 4080, are
vented gas appliance listed to ANSI Standard Z21.88b2002 and CSA-2.33b-2002 for Vented Room Heaters, and
CSA 2.17-M91, Gas-Fired Appliances For Use at High Altitudes.
The installation of the PDV20 and SDVR Direct Vent
Room Heaters must conform with local codes, or in the
absence of local codes, with National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54 — latest edition and CSA B-149.1 (EXCEPTION: Do not derate this appliance for altitude. Maintain the manifold pressure at 3.5” w.c. for Natural Gas and
10” w.c. for LP gas at maximum input.) Refer to Page 37
(RF only).
This appliance is only for use with the type of gas indicated on the rating plate. This appliance is not convertible
for use with other gases unless a certified kit is used.
Installation and replacement of gas piping, gas
utilization equipment or accessories, and repair and
servicing of equipment shall be performed only by a
qualified agency. The term “qualified agency” means
any individual, firm, corporation, or company that either
in person or through a representative is engaged in
and is responsible for (a) installation or replacement of
gas piping, or (b), the connection, installation, repair,
or servicing of equipment, who is experienced in such
work, familiar with all precautions required, and has
complied with all the requirements of the authority
having jurisdiction.
The PDV20 and SDVR Direct Vent Room Heaters
should be inspected before use and at least annually
by a qualified service agency. It is imperative that
control compartments, burners, and circulating air
passageways of the appliance be kept clean.
The PDV20 and SDVR Direct Vent Room Heaters and
the individual shut-off valve must be disconnected from
the gas supply piping during any pressure testing of that
system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
The PDV20 and SDVR Direct Vent Room Heaters must
be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing
the 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.
An accessible tap is located above the pilot/on-off knob
for checking the inlet pressure.
'Direct Vent' describes a sealed combustion system in
which incoming outside air for combustion and outgoing
exhaust enter and exit through two separate concentric
passages within the same sealed vent system. The system does not use room air to support combustion. The
Direct Vent system permits the gas appliance to be vented
directly to the outside atmosphere through the side of the
house or vertically through the roof.
This appliance is approved for bedroom installations in
the U.S. and Canada.
This appliance may be installed in an aftermarket*
manufactured (mobile) home, where not prohibited by state
or local codes.

Plate*
The vent termination should be located where it cannot
be damaged by such things as automobile doors, lawn
mowers or snowblowers and it should be located away
from areas where it could become blocked by snow,
etc.
Some considerations are:
•
contact with combustion exhaust gases.
Other nearby openings {within 9" (230mm)} through
which exhaust gas could reenter the building.
All vegetation within 3' (914mm) that may interfere
with the draft.
Other factors that influence where the installation will
be sited include the location of outside walls, where
additional heat may be desired in the home, where the
family members gather most regularly, and perhaps
most importantly, the distance limitations of the venting
system.

Important: All vent clearances must be maintained.
Check your vent termination clearances against
Figures 9 and 10 .
• Obstructions or impediments to venting.
• Nearby combustible materials that could come into

Troubleshooting / Honeywell #8420 Gas Control System
NOTE: Before troubleshooting the gas control system, be sure the external gas shutoff is in the “ON” position.
WARNING: REMOVE THE GLASS PANEL BEFORE PERFORMING ANY GAS CONTROL SERVICE WORK.
SYMPTOM
1. Spark ignitor will
not light
2. Pilot will not stay lit
after carefully
following the
lighting instructions
3. Pilot lights, no gas
to burner, valve
knob ON, remote
switch (rocker
switch) ON
POSSIBLE CAUSES
CORRECTIVE ACTION
A. Defective or misaligned
electrode at the pilot
Using a match, light pilot. If pilot lights, turn off pilot and
push the ignitor button again. If pilot will not light, check
gap at electrode and pilot - it should be 1/8” to have a
strong spark.
B. Defective ignitor (push
button)
Push piezo ignitor button. Check for spark at electrode
and pilot. If there is no spark at the pilot, and electrode
wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
A. Defective pilot generator
(thermocouple)
Check pilot flame. It must impinge on the thermocouple
or thermopile. NOTE: This pilot burner assembly uses
both a thermocouple and a thermopile. The thermocouple operates the pilot flame. Tighten the thermocouple. The thermopile operates the main valve (ON and
OFF). Clean and/or adjust pilot for maximum flame
impingement on thermocouple and thermopile.
B. Defective automatic valve
operator
Turn valve knob to ‘Pilot’. Maintain flow to pilot; millivolt
meter should read greater than 10mV. If the reading is
okay and the pilot does not stay on, replace the gas
valve. NOTE: An interrupter block (not supplied) must be
used to conduct this test.
A. Remote switch or wires
defective
Check rocker switch and wires for proper connection.
Use jumper wires across terminals at rocker switch. If
burner lights, replace rocker switch. If okay, use jumper
wires across rocker switch wires at the valve; if burner
lights, wires are faulty or connections are bad.
B. Thermopile may not generate sufficient voltage
1. Be sure wire connections from thermopile at gas valve
terminals are tight and thermopile is fully inserted into
pilot bracket.
2. One of the rocker switch wires may be grounded.
Remove rocker switch wires from valve terminals. If
burner now stays lit, trace rocker switch wiring from
ground. It may be grounded to the appliance or the
gas supply line.
3. Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take
reading at thermopile (“TP” and “TP/TH”) terminals of
gas valve. Should read 325 millivolts minimum while
holding valve knob depressed in PILOT position and
with rocker switch OFF. Replace faulty thermopile if
reading is below specified minimum.
4. Frequent pilot
outage
20007066
C. Plugged burner orifice
Check burner orifices for debris, and remove.
D. Defective automatic valve
operator
Turn knob to ON, place rocker switch to ON, millivolt
meter should read greater than 10 mV. If the reading is
okay and the burner does not light, replace the valve.
A. Pilot flame may be too low
or high, (blowing or lifting),
causing the pilot to drop out
B. Possible blockage of the
vent terminal
Clean and/or adjust pilot flame for maximum flame
impingement on thermocouple and thermopile.
Check the vent terminal for blockage.

Pinnacle & Stardance Direct Vent - Rear Vent Gas Heaters
Maintenance
Your PDV20 and SDVR Gas Heaters will provide years
of service with minimal upkeep. The following procedures will help ensure that your stove continues to
function properly.
Annual System Inspection
Have the entire heater and venting system inspected
annually by a qualified gas technician. Replace any
worn or broken parts.
Logset and Burner
Cleaning and Inspection
Cleanliness is critical to the proper function of the
heater. The logset and burner must all be kept free of
dust and unobstructed by debris. Inspect these areas
before each use and clean as necessary.
1. Turn the burner OFF and let the heater cool completely before cleaning.
2. Lift the Stove Front up and then swing the bottom
out to disengage it from the heater shell. (Fig. 65)
3. Carefully remove the glass and frame assembly and
place it out of the way on a flat, padded surface
such as a counter protected by a towel.
4. Carefully inspect the Logs for damage. Contact your
local dealer if any damage is evident. DO NOT
OPERATE THE HEATER WITH DAMAGED LOGS.
5. Use a soft bristled brush to sweep dust or debris
from the Logs, Pilot and Burner. Use care as the
logs are fragile and susceptible to damage.
6. Replace the glass panel and frame assembly.
7. Replace the Stove Front.
CAUTION
TURN THE PILOT OFF BEFORE PAINTING.
ALLOW THE HEATER TO COOL COMPLETELY
BEFORE PAINTING.
Cleaning the Glass
WARNING: Let the glass cool completely before
attempting to clean.
It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically.
During start-up, condensation, which is normal, forms
on the inside of the glass and causes lint, dust and
other airborne particles to cling to the glass surface.
Also initial paint curing may deposit a slight film on the
glass. It is therefore recommended that the glass be
cleaned two or three times with a non-ammonia household cleaner and warm water (we recommend gas
fireplace glass cleaner). After that the glass should be
cleaned two or three times during each heating season
depending on the circumstances present.
Clean glass after first two weeks of
operation.
Glass Replacement
Replace glass only with CFM Specialty Home Products
approved parts. Refer to Page 39 for Replacement
Parts. Refer to Figure 66 and previous instructions for
removal of the damaged glass frame.
Care of Cast Iron
An occasional dusting with a dry rag will help keep the
painted surfaces looking new. Use high-temperature
stove paints, available through your local dealer, to
touch-up areas as needed. Clean areas to be painted
with a wire brush and be sure to cover the logs, burner
and valve assembly, glass and frame assembly. Apply
the paint sparingly; two light coats of paint will give
better results than a single heavy coat.
Clean porcelain enamel surfaces with a soft, damp
cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents. If necessary, use only a cleaning agent formulated especially
for use on porcelain enamel surfaces.

Pinnacle & Stardance Direct Vent - Rear Vent Gas Heaters
NOTE: Shown
without top for
clarity.
Inspect the Vent System Annually
Have the vent system inspected annually by a qualified
technician. Shut off the main gas supply before inspecting the system. Both the inner exhaust pipe and the
outer combustion supply pipe must be checked to
confirm that they are unblocked and in good condition.
Check the Gas Flame Regularly
ST391a
Fig. 66 Release the latches to release the glass frame.
Gasket Replacement
The PDV20 and SDVR Gas Heaters use a ‘tadpole’
type gasket to seal between the glass panel and the
frame. In time, this gasket can become brittle and
compressed and should be replaced. New gasket is
available from your dealer.
To ensure that the stove is operating properly, check
the flames periodically to confirm that they match
Figures 50-52. The flames will be blue during the first
15-20 minutes of operation, and will gradually turn to
yellow after that.
Do not use your stove if the flame pattern differs from
that shown here. Contact your Vermont Castings dealer
or a qualified technician for help.
Shut off the gas supply and allow the stove to cool.
Wear safety goggles and a dust mask.
1. Remove the Front, Glass Frame and Glass Panel.
(Figs. 65, 66) Remove the old gasket. Use a razor
blade to separate the glass and gasket from the
frame, and to clean the glass of any remaining
cement or bits of gasket. Use a cold chisel if necessary.
2. Determine the correct length of gasket by laying it
out around the edge of the glass. Allow an extra 1 2” (25-50mm). Mark the spot to be cut. Use a utility
knife.
3. Starting on a long edge, remove about 6” of the
protective paper strip and apply the flat adhesive
face of the gasket around the outside-facing edge of
the panel. Continue around the panel, applying
about 6” at a time and being careful to not stretch
the material. Do not overlap the gasket ends. (Fig.
67)
4. Apply a thin bead of high temperature silicone
rubber sealant along the inside corner of the glass
frame, all around the perimeter. Place the flat
gasketed side of the glass panel back into the steel
frame. Pinch the rounded inside-facing gasket
material to bulk it up.
5. Replace the glass frame and front panel as previously described.

Pinnacle & Stardance Direct Vent - Rear Vent Gas Heaters
Stove Disassembly
If there is ever a need to remove the firebox assembly
from the stove shell, support the firebox with solid
stands about 6” (152mm) tall under the left and right
outer edges of the firebox base. Do not set the firebox
assembly directly on the floor; this can damage the
control valve and/or the gas lines from the valve to the
firebox.
Before removing the firebox from the shell, disconnect
the on/off switch wires from the valve. If the assembly
includes the optional fan, disconnect the fan rheostat. If
the installation includes a wall thermostat, disconnect
the thermostat leads from valve.
