Installing The Fireplace Shell
Framing
The fireplace may be installed in any location that maintains proper clearances to air conditioning ducts, electrical wiring and plumbing. Safety,
as well as efficiency of operation, must be considered when selecting
the fireplace location. Try to select a location that does not interfere
with room traffic, has adequate ventilation, and offers an accessible
pathway for Direct Vent installation. Refer to page 4 - Vent Installation
for more information.

Clearances
These clearances apply to all dimensions except the framed opening,
where the clearance to combustibles is 0". The L52DF-ST clearance to
unprotected combustible walls which are perpendicular to the fireplace
opening, must not project beyond the shaded area shown in Fig. 24.
For protection against freezing temperatures, it is recommended that
outer walls of the chase be insulated with a vapor barrier. This will reduce
the possibility of a cold-air convection current on the fireplace.

Installing The Gas Line
Vent Installation
The gas line must be installed before finishing the L52DF-ST Fireplace.
Natural Gas requires a minimum inlet gas supply pressure of 5.5" W.C.
& a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C. Propane Gas requires a minimum
inlet gas supply pressure of 11" W.C. & a manifold pressure of 10" W.C.
Provision must also be made for a 1/8" N.P.T. plugged tapping and be
accessible for test gauge connection immediately upstream of the gas
supply controls to the appliance. The fireplace gas connection and the
main operating gas valve is located behind the removable trim at the
bottom of the unit and need only be attached to the gas line with an
approved fitting, as required by the applicable installation codes.
This section covers the installation of direct venting and terminations.
Installation Requirements

QQ
L52DF-ST fireplaces are certified for use with Montigo Standard Series (5"
/ 8") venting components.
Minimum clearance to combustible construction around the vent pipe
is 1" on all sides, except on horizontal venting where the top of the pipe
must have a clearance of at least 2".
QQ
Use only certified Montigo vent components. (Use of other parts will void the
Montigo warranty, and may impede the operation of the fireplace.)
To access the fireplace gas connection the main burner must be
removed as shown below in figure 5a.
QQ
All joints must be secured with a minimum of two screws per joint
QQ
Vent terminations must not be recessed in walls or siding
• Only use gas shut-off valves approved for use by the state, province,
region, or governing body, in which the appliance is being installed, or
as required by the applicable installation codes.
QQ
Horizontal runs must be supported by a minimum of two supports per horizontal
run. A minimum of one screw on each side of support is also required
QQ
Flex vent sections may be stretched up to 50% of their total length (eg. a
24" section may be stretched to 36")
QQ
Flex vent sections over 6 feet must fall within the limits set by the venting
graph and must have a minimum vertical rise of 3 inches per foot of flex.
QQ
Solid vent sections may be cut less than half way from the female end
QQ

QQ
Note: After gas line is connected, each appliance connection,
valve and valve train must be checked while under normal
operating pressure with either a liquid solution, or leak
detection device, to locate any source of leak. Tighten any
areas where bubbling appears or leak is detected until
bubbling stops completely or leak is no longer detected.
DO NOT use a flame of any kind to test for leaks.
Vent terminations can be very hot. If the termination is
less than 7 feet above a public walkway, it should be fitted
with a certified Montigo Heat Guard. (Part no. PTKOG).
Do not obstruct, or attempt to conceal, the vent termination.
These actions will affect the operation of the fireplace,
and may be hazardous.
In heavy snow areas, take extra care to prevent snow
buildup from obstructing the vent termination.
Use Montigo VSS Vinyl Heat Shield when using on applications with vinyl siding to guard against possible damage.
Installing The Remote Switch
The L52DF-ST's gas valve, located behind the lower Horizontal Panel,
may be connected to a wall switch. The valve generates its own power
on a millivolt circuit. Use only low voltage wire, and DO NOT connect
any external power to it.
Note: The switch location must not exceed 30' from the fireplace.

(Available on Linear Power Vent models ONLY)
It is possible to reduce vertical vent runs from 5"/8" venting to 4"/7"
venting. Reduced vertical venting may only be used when the Linear
(In-line) Power Vent is required. This is commonly due to longer than
normal vent runs or unusually long horizontal Vent runs.

Installing The Horizontal &
Vertical Exterior Power Vent
A Power Vent is required where the Termination is located too far
away from the gas fireplace and/or if the vent run is beyond the scope
of this document, or the specifications recommend vent augmentation. There are four 4/7 Power Vent models available. These Power
Vents are required for Superior venting, safe operation & years of
trouble free operation.
Mantels & Surrounds
NOTE: National Canadian Gas Association mantel test requirements
are for fire hazard prevention to combustible materials.
New technology, to meet consumer and government demands for the
wise use of energy, has prompted us to manufacture many models of
fireplaces which are hot, fuel and energy efficient.
Please be aware; temperatures over the mantel will rise above normal
room temperature and walls above fireplace may be hot to touch.
The available Montigo Power Vent models are:
Warning:
LDVPV47 (Linear, Interior In-line Power Vent, document, XG0700).
When covering the upper metal portion of the fireplace with a noncombustible material Please Note: The decorative facing materials
may be subject to temperatures in excess of 250° F. This should be
considered when selecting facing materials.
EDVPV47 (External Power Vent Module, document, XG0750).
EDVRSPV47 (Exterior Vertical Roof mount 4/7 stainless steel Power
Vent system, document, XG1303)
EDVWSPV47 (Exterior Horizontal Wall mount 4/7 stainless steel Power
Vent system, document, XG1302).
Finishing Around the Fireplace
Combustible mantels and mouldings may be safely installed over the
top and on the front of the fireplace provided that they do not project
beyond shaded area shown in Figure 24. Side wall clearances are 3".
Combustible surrounds may be installed with 3" clearance to the side
of the fireplace as shown in Figure 25.
When selecting the finish material for your fireplace, it is important to
remember the following:
If the surround of the fireplace is to be painted to match the room decor,
heat-resistant paint must be provided . Also, decorative facing must not
extend past the fireplace opening at all because it will interfere with the
access to retainers for removal of glass door and access to the lower
compartment.
We recommend careful consideration be given to the effects of elevated
mantel temperatures which may be in excess of product design, for
example: candles, plastic or pictures. This can cause melting, deformation,
discoloration or premature failure of T.V. and radio components.
L52DF-ST
Painting:
Special care is recommended by the Master Painters and Decorators
Association, when painting the fireplace surrounds, to select and apply
a quality Alkyd sealer prior to the applying of latex paints. This is to
prevent leaching of water from evaporation and causing a brownish
staining effect to paint over coats.

Lighting Instructions
General
See pages 12 to 15.
QQ
Have the fireplace and installation inspected yearly. The inspection
must include, but is not limited to, the following:
• A visual check of the entire vent system and termination.
Burner Adjustment
• An inspection of the explosion relief flappers and the door
gasketing to ensure a proper seal.
The L52DF-ST is equipped with an adjustable burner, allowing you to
raise or lower the flames. To adjust the flames, locate the black knob
marked 'Hi-Lo', in the centre of the gas control valve (See Figure 32).
The front burners are not adjustable.
• An inspection of the burner, venturi, and primary air openings.
• An inspection of the gas valve, gas components, and pilot flame. For your convenience a 1/8" manifold pressure tap is supplied
on the gas valve for a test gauge connection. See Figure 32.
QQ To
raise the flame height, turn the black knob (located behind the
lower trim) counter-clockwise.
QQ To
lower the flame height, turn clockwise.
'Hi-Lo' Adjustment Knob
Figure 32. 'Hi-Lo' Adjustment on the L52DF-ST's gas valve.
Note: L52DF-ST-I models (electronic ignition) do not feature
hi/lo adjustment.
CAUTION!
 Fireplace gas control must be in the “OFF” position and pilot
and main burners extinguished when cleaning appliance with
a vacuum.
 Doors can get very hot. Handle only when cool.
• Inspection of all optional equipment, thermostats, etc.
QQ
For Natural Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure
of 5.5" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C.
QQ
For Propane Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure
of 11" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 10" W.C.
QQ
Always keep the fireplace area clear and free of combustible materials,
as well as gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
QQ
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.
Cleaning
When the fireplace is first activated, there may be some smoking and
a visible film may be left on the glass. This is a normal condition, and is
the result of burning of protective coatings on new metal.
QQ
Glass must be cleaned periodically to remove any film (which is a
normal by-product of combustion) which may be visible. Film can
easily be removed by removing the door, as shown on page 12.
Handle the door carefully, and clean it with non-abrasive glass
cleaners. One of the most effective products is Kel Kem.
QQ
Silicone seals on inner door during initial firing will "off gas", leaving
a visual deposit of a white substance on combustion chamber walls.
This can easily be removed using normal household products.
QQ
Use a vacuum cleaner or whisk broom to keep the control
compartment, burner, and firebox free from dust and lint. QQ
Linear Burners may be cleaned periodically with a vacuum to remove
soot or other contaminates.
WARNING!
Do not attempt to clean glass when hot.
Do not clean glass with abrasive materials as any glass etching may cause premature glass failure.
