This stove should be installed only by a qualified installer. It is approved for installation in a bedroom.
Bedroom installation in Canada requires that the stove be connected to a thermostat. The stove must be
electrically grounded in accordance with local codes, or the latest edition of the National Electric Code. If
no local codes exist, this stove should be installed following the current codes:
CAN/CGA-B149.1 ........................................................................ Natural Gas Installation Code
CSA-C22.1 .................................................................................... Canadian Electrical Code
ANSI Z223.1 ................................................................................. National Fuel Gas Code
ANSI NFPA-70 ............................................................................. National Electrical Code
Manufactured (mobile) home installation must conform to the manufactured home construction and safety
standard (UL307B, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280), or when such a standard is not applicable, the standard for
manufactured home installations (ANSI A225.1/NFPA 501A).

GAS LINE CONNECTION
Gas line connection can be made near the lower rear of the stove (3/8” gas hookup). You must supply a
shutoff valve installed in a visible location within 3’ (914mm) of the stove.
CAUTION
IN SOME AREAS, GAS LINE PRESSURE MAY BE MORE THAN 1/2 PSIG (14” WC). IF
YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS MIGHT BE THE CASE IN YOUR LOCALITY, CONTACT YOUR
GAS SUPPLIER OR LOCAL UTILITY COMPANY. LINE PRESSURE GREATER THAN 1/2
PSIG WILL DAMAGE THE STOVE VALVE. YOU MUST INSTALL A REGULATOR
UPSTREAM FROM THE STOVE IF LINE PRESSURE IS GREATER THAN 1/2 PSIG.
PRESSURE TESTING
During any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system that exceeds test pressures of 1/2 PSIG, this
stove and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the piping system. If test pressure is less
than or equal to 1/2 PSIG, then this stove must be isolated from the piping system by closing its individual
shutoff valve. The gas valve is supplied with pressure test ports for checking input and output pressures.
These are located just above the on/off knob and can be found inside the hinged lower access grill. The port
on the left is for output pressure and the port on the right for input. Pressure can be checked by turning the
captured screw counterclockwise two or three turns and then placing the manometer tubing over the test
port. BE SURE TO CLOSE CAPTURED SCREWS AFTER TESTING BY TURNING THEM
CLOCKWISE. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN SCREWS.
NOTE: To make flame and heat output adjustments, turn the HI-LO knob located on the center of the valve
(as seen below). Turn counterclockwise for a higher flame and clockwise for a lower flame.

INSTALLATION: CONNECTION
INSTALLATION PROCEDURES
The following procedures show some of the basic installation applications. Remember that every
installation is different, and the installer should adjust to insure that the stove is installed properly.
GAS CONNECTIONS
Before hooking up the stove to the gas supply, be sure that the stove you are installing is designed
for the type of gas being supplied to it. There is a serial number and listing label on the rear of the
stove that will indicate which type of gas it is designed to utilize. The gas valve also has a label
telling the type of fuel for which it is set up.
There is a 3/8” gas hookup located under the stove body, with access from the rear through the
pedestal cutout. We recommend connecting the stove with an approved flex gas line, as shown
below. If flex gas lines are not approved in your area, you can connect a hard pipe to the gas
hookup.

VENTING:
INSTRUCTIONS
VENTING INSTRUCTIONS
PLEASE NOTE: In order to comply with applicable codes and product warranties, only Simpson
Dura-Vent venting components may be used. DO NOT USE FIELD-FABRICATED VENTING
COMPONENTS.
The Quadra-Fire GBDV-40 is approved to be vented either through the side wall or vertically
through the roof. You may vent through a Class A or masonry chimney if a Simpson Dura-Vent
adapter is used (for USA installations only). Only Simpson Dura-Vent components labeled and
listed in this section may be used.
IMPORTANT
Read all these instructions carefully before starting the installation. Failure to follow instructions
may create a fire or other safety hazard, and will void the warranty. Be sure to follow these installation
instructions for venting and clearance to combustible requirements, which may vary from one
installation to another. Do not extend the venting system in excess of the distance prescribed in
these manufacturer’s installation instructions.
INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS
The Quadra-Fire GBDV-40 is an engineered product that has been designed and tested. The warranty
will be voided, and serious fire, health, or other safety hazards may result from any of the following
actions: installation of any damaged venting component, unauthorized modification of the venting
system, installation of any component part not approved by Aladdin Hearth Products, or installation
other than as instructed by these instructions. Consult your local building codes before beginning
this installation.
WARNING: Always maintain the required clearances (air space) to nearby combustibles to avoid
creating a fire hazard. Do not fill air space with insulation. Minimum clearance between vent pipes
and combustible surfaces is 1” (25mm), except where stated otherwise. Be sure to check the vent
termination clearance requirements from decks, windows, soffits, gas regulators, air supply inlets
and public walkways, as specified in these installation instructions and local building codes. (Refer
to page 21 for horizontal installation instructions.)
The gas stove and vent system must be vented directly to the outside of the building, and never be
attached to a chimney serving a separate solid fuel or gas-burning appliance. This direct vent gas
stove must use its own separate vent system. Common vent systems are prohibited.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR THE INSTALLER
Wear gloves and safety glasses for protection when installing this stove. Exercise extreme electrical
caution when using ladders or on rooftops. Be aware of electrical wiring locations in walls and
ceilings.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE
Conduct an inspection of the venting system twice a year. Recommended areas to inspect are as
follows:
1 . Check areas of the venting system which are exposed to the elements for corrosion. These will
appear as rust spots or streaks and in extreme cases, holes. These components should immediately
be replaced.
2. Remove the cap, and shine a flashlight down the vent. Remove any bird nests, or other foreign
material.
3. Check for evidence of excessive condensation, such as water droplets forming in the inner liner
and subsequently dripping out at joints. Continuous condensation can cause caps, pipe and
fittings to corrode. Condensation can be caused by having excessive lateral runs, or too many
elbows.
4. Inspect joints to verify that no pipe sections or fittings have been disturbed and consequently
loosened. Also check mechanical support such as wall straps, or plumbers tape for rigidity.

CLEARANCES
A vent shall not terminate directly above a sidewalk or paved driveway which is located
between two single family dwelling and serves both dwellings (not pictured).
A vent shall not terminate within 36" (914mm) of the property line (not pictured).
For USA installations follow current National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1.
VENTING:
NOTE: This stove is a direct vent heater. All combustion air must come directly from the
outside of the building. Vent pipe for this unit consists of an inner and an outer layer. The
inner layer carries the stove exhaust out of the system, and the outer layer brings fresh
combustion air into the stove.
Page 17
Grand Bay 40 Direct Vent Freestanding
There are four types of direct vent system installations approved for use with the GBDV-40. It is
very important to maintain a balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust
venting system. The types of installation are:
Horizontal Termination (Figure 1)
Vertical Termination (Figure 2)
Into a Class A Metal Chimney (Figure 3)*
Into a Masonry Chimney (Figure 4)*
*USA installations only
Note: Certain limitations as to vent and vertical termination configuration apply, and
must be strictly adhered to.
When planning your installation, it will be necessary to select the proper length of vent pipe for your
particular requirements. The vent graph on page 20 will show the relationship between vertical and horizontal
side wall venting, and will help to determine the various vent lengths permitted. It is also important to note
the wall thickness. Select the amount of vertical rise desired for “vertical-to-horizontal” type installations.
To determine the length of your pipe required for vertical installations, measure the distance from the
application flue outlet to the ceiling, the ceiling thickness, the vertical rise in an attic or second story, and
allow for sufficient vent height above the roofline. For two-story applications, fire stops are required at
each floor level. If an offset is needed in the attic, additional pipe and elbows will be required.
VENTING:
INSTALLATION
PLANNING YOUR INSTALLATION
When installing this appliance into an existing masonry chimney, it is important to carefully measure the
length of flex needed to reach from the appliance outlet to the termination cap. If the flex length is too short,
a flex coupler will be needed to attach an additional length of flex liner to make up the difference. If the flex
length is too long, the liner could sag below the appliance outlet, which could result in a potential fire
hazard.

HOW TO USE VENT GRAPH
1. Measure the distance from the top of stove to the center of the 90° elbow. On the graph below,
draw a horizontal line from that measurement on the vertical axis across until it intersects with
the slanted line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical line to the bottom of the graph.
3. The point at which this line meets the bottom line of the graph is the maximum length of the
horizontal run.
Example 1: If the vertical dimension from the top of the stove to the center of the 90° elbow is 7’
(2.13m), the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not exceed 9’ 9” (2.97m).
Example 2: If the vertical dimension from the top of the stove is 21’ (6.4m), the horizontal run to
the outer wall flange must not exceed 7’ 3” (2.21m).
Note: The maximum horizontal vent run is 15’ (4.57m) when the vertical vent rise is 10’
(3.05m).
The minimum horizontal vent run is 11” (279mm).
Minimum wall thickness is 4” (102mm). Maximum wall thickness is 20” (508mm).

HORIZONTAL INSTALLATION
VENTING:
Step 1. Set the gas stove in its desired location. Check to determine if wall studs or roof rafters
are in the way when the venting system is attached. If this is the case, you may want to
adjust the location of the stove.
Step 2. Simpson Dura-Vent pipe is designed with special twist-lock connections. To connect the
venting system to the stove flue outlet, a twist-lock adapter is built into the stove at the
factory. Assemble the desired combination of pipe and elbows to the adapter with pipe
seams oriented towards the wall or floor, as much out of view as possible. Remember to
include wall thickness in minimum clearances when figuring the measurements for your
installation needs.
Note:
Twist-lock procedure: Four indentations, located on the female ends of pipes and fittings,
are designed to slide straight onto the male ends of adjacent pipes and fittings by orienting
the four pipe indentations so they match and slide into the four entry slots on the male
ends (Figure 5). Push the pipe sections completely together, then twist-lock one section
clockwise approximately one-quarter turn, until the two sections are fully locked. The
female locking lugs will not be visible from the outside, on the pipe or fittings. They may
be located by examining the inside of the female ends.

Step 3. With the adapter and pipe attached to the stove, slide the stove into its correct location,
maintaining minimum clearance to combustibles, and mark the wall for a 10” x 10” (254mm
x 254mm) square hole. The center of the square hole should line up with the centerline of
the horizontal pipe, as shown in Figure 6. Cut and frame the hole in the exterior wall
where the vent will be terminated. If the wall being penetrated is constructed of
noncombustible material, i.e. masonry block or concrete, a 7” (178mm) diameter hole is
acceptable.

FIG. 6
NOTE:
(1)
The horizontal run of vent must be level, or have a ¼” (6mm) rise for every 1’ (305mm) of
run towards the termination. Never allow the vent to run downward. This could cause
high temperatures and may present the possibility of a fire.
(2)
The location of the horizontal vent termination on an exterior wall must meet all local and
national building codes, and must not be easily blocked or obstructed.
(3)
For installations requiring a vertical rise on the exterior of the building, 14” (356mm) and
36” (914mm) tall snorkel terminations are available. Follow the same installation
procedures as used for standard horizontal terminations. If the snorkel termination must
be installed below grade (i.e. basement application), proper drainage must be provided to
prevent water from entering the snorkel termination. Do not backfill around snorkel
termination.
NOTE: Only one 90° elbow is permitted per side wall (horizontal) installation. An additional 45°
elbow is permitted for corner installations.

Step 4. Position the horizontal vent termination in the center of the 10” (254mm) square hole, and
attach to the exterior wall with the four wood screws provided. Before attaching the Vent
Termination to the exterior wall, run a bead of non-hardening mastic around its outside
edges, so as to make a seal between it and the wall. The arrow on the vent cap should be
pointing up. Insure that proper clearances to combustible materials are maintained (Figure

Step 5. Before connecting the horizontal run of vent pipe to the vent termination, slide the black
decorative wall thimble cover over the vent pipe.
Step 6. Slide the stove and vent assembly towards the wall, carefully inserting the vent pipe into
the vent cap assembly. It is important that the vent pipe extend into the vent cap sufficient
distance so as to result in a minimum pipe overlap of 1¼” (32mm). Secure the connection
between the vent pipe and the vent cap by attaching the two sheet metal strips extending
from the vent cap assembly into the outer wall of the vent pipe. Use the two sheet metal
screws provided to connect the strips to the pipe section. Bend any remaining portion of
the sheet metal strip back towards the vent cap, so it will be concealed by the decorative
wall thimble cover (Figure 9).
Note: The attachment from the vent pipe to the vent cap must be siliconed.

Step 3. To install the round support box/wall thimble in a flat ceiling, cut a 10” (254mm) square
hole in the ceiling, centered on the hole drilled in Step 2. Frame the hole as shown in
Figure 13.

Step 2. Set the gas stove in its desired location. Drop a plumb bob down from the ceiling to the
position of the stove flue exit, and mark the location where the vent will penetrate the
ceiling. Drill a small hole at this point. Next, drop a plumb bob from the roof to the hole
previously drilled in the ceiling, and mark the spot where the vent will penetrate the roof.
Determine if ceiling joists, roof rafters, or other framing will obstruct the venting system.
You may wish to relocate the stove, or to offset, as shown in Figure 12, to avoid cutting
loadbearing members.

Step 4. Assemble the desired lengths of black pipe and elbows necessary to reach from the stove
up through the round support box. Insure that all pipe and elbow connections are in their
fully twist-locked position. Be sure to seal the pipe with appropriate sealant.
Step 5. Cut a hole in the roof centered on the small drill hole placed in the roof in step 2. The hole
should be of sufficient size to meet the minimum requirements for clearance to
combustibles, as specified. Continue to assemble lengths of pipe and elbows necessary to
reach from the ceiling support box up through the roof line. Galvanized pipe and elbows
may be utilized in the attic, as well as above the roofline. The galvanized finish is desirable
above the roofline, due to its higher corrosion resistance.
NOTE:
(1)
If an offset is necessary in the attic to avoid obstructions, it is important to support the
vent pipe every 3’ (914mm) to avoid excessive stress on the elbows, and possible separation.
Wall straps are available for this purpose (Figure 12).

Page 26
Whenever possible, use 45° elbows, instead of 90° elbows. The 45° elbow offers less
restriction to the flow of flue gases and intake air.
Step 6. Slip the flashing over the pipe section(s) protruding through the roof. Secure the base of
the flashing to the roof with roofing nails. Insure the roofing material overlaps the top
edge of the flashing to the roof with roofing nails. Insure the roofing material overlaps the
top edge of the flashing as shown in Figure 14. Verify that you have at least the minimum
clearance to combustibles at the roofline.

Step 8. Twist-lock the vent cap and seal.
NOTE:
(1)
For multistory vertical installations, a ceiling firestop (SDV part #963) is required at the
second floor, and any subsequent floors (Figure 16). The opening should be framed to 10”
x 10” (254mm x 254mm) inside dimensions, in the same manner as shown in Figure 13.
(2)
Any occupied areas above the first floor, including closets and storage spaces, which the
vertical vent passed through must be enclosed. The enclosure may be framed and
sheetrocked with standard construction materials; however, refer to these installation
instructions for the minimum allowable clearance between the outside of the vent pipe
and the combustible surfaces of the enclosure. Do not fill any of the required air space
with insulation.

Step 7. Continue to assemble pipe sections until the height of the vent cap (H) (Figure 15) meets
the minimum code requirements described in code requirements as outlined in the current
CAN/CGA-Bl49 Installation Codes (in Canada), the National Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/
ANSI Z223.1 (in USA), or local codes. Note that for steep roof pitches, the vent height
must be increased. In high wind conditions, nearby trees adjoining rooflines, steep pitched
roofs, and other similar factors can result in poor draft, or down drafting. In these cases
increasing the vent height may solve this problem.

CATHEDRAL
Step 1. Follow installation Steps 1 and 2 under vertical termination section.
Step 2. Using the plumb-bob, mark the centerline of the venting system on the ceiling, and drill a
small hole through the ceiling and roof at this point. From the roof, locate the drill hole
and mark the outline of the cathedral ceiling support box.
Step 3. Remove shingles or other roof covering as necessary to cut the rectangular hole for the
support box. Cut the hole 1/8" (3mm) larger than the support box outline.
Step 4. Lower the support box through the hole in the roof until the bottom of the box protrudes
at least 2” (51mm) below the ceiling (Figure 18). Align the support box both vertically
and horizontally with a level. Temporarily tack the support box in place through the inside
walls and into the roof sheathing.
FIG. 18
Step 5. Using tin snips, cut the support box from the top corners down to the roofline, and fold
the resulting flaps over the roof sheathing (Figure 19). Before nailing it to the roof, run a
bead of non-hardening mastic around the top edges of the support box to make a seal
between it and the roof. Clean out any combustible material from inside the support box.

INSTALLATION INTO A CLASS A METAL CHIMNEY
NOTE: Have the existing installation inspected by a qualified chimney sweep or professional
installer prior to converting to direct vent. The existing chimney system must be in
serviceable condition and functionally sound.
Step 1. Remove existing chimney cap.
Step 2. Measure the distance from the top of the chimney to the bottom of the ceiling support box,
add 3” (76mm) to this measurement, and cut a section of 4” (102mm) flex pipe to that
length (the flex should be extended to its nominal length).
Step 3. Connect the end of the flex pipe section to the underside of the top adapter (SDV #985K,
986K or 987K), using three sheet metal screws (Figure 20).
Step 4. Pass the flex pipe down through the center of the chimney system, and center the top
adapter on the top of the chimney pipe. Drill four 1/8” (3.3mm) diameter holes through
the top adapter, and into the chimney top. Insure that you are drilling into the metal on the
chimney. Twist lock the high wind termination cap (SDV #991) onto the top adapter
(Figures 21 and 22).
Step 5. Pull the flex pipe down through the ceiling support box, until it protrudes approximately
3” (76mm). Connect the flex pipe to the retro connector (SDV #909B), and attach with
sheet metal screws.
Step 6. Push the flex pipe back up into the ceiling support box, center the retro connector, and
attach it to the support box with sheet metal screws.

INSTALLATION INTO AN EXISTING MASONRY CHIMNEY
Step 1. Before cutting any holes, assemble the desired sections of direct vent pipe to determine
the center of the masonry penetration.
FIG. 23
Step 2. Once the center point of the penetration
has been determined, cut a 6” (152mm)
diameter hole in the masonry. If the hole
is too large, the retro connector might
not mount properly; if the hole is too
small, the appliance might starve for
intake air. If there is a frame wall in front
of the masonry wall, cut and frame a 10”
(254mm) square opening in the wall
(centered around the 6” [152mm]
masonry opening). If there is sheet rock
only (no studs) in front of the masonry
the 10” (254mm) opening is still needed,
but does not need to be framed. This
allows the retro connector to mount
directly on the masonry and provide the
correct clearances to combustibles (see
Figure 23).
Step 3. Secure the flashing (SDV #705C) to the
top of the masonry chimney using a bead
of non-hardening sealant-adhesive. If the
flashing is larger than the top of the
chimney, cut and fold flashing as needed
to fit chimney (Figure 24).
Step 4. To determine the length of flex needed,
measure from 3” (76mm) above the top
of the flashing down to the level of the
opening. Add the distance from the
center of the chimney out through the
wall. Cut a piece of 4” (102mm) flex to
this length (extended to its nominal
length). Be sure to leave 2”-3” (51mm76mm) of flex above the existing
chimney to allow for connection to the
termination kit.
FIG. 24
January 2000

VERTICAL TERMINATIONS (cont.)
Step 5. Connect the flex liner to the top adapter
using three sheet metal screws (see
Figure 20).
Step 6. Feed the flex liner through the flashing
into the chimney. Carefully feed the flex
liner down the chimney to the bottom
and out the opening in the masonry wall,
forming an angle to line up the flex liner
with the vent opening on the appliance.
NOTE: Do not let the flex liner sag
below the level at which it will connect
to the appliance or connector. This
could allow hot gas to become trapped
and potentially become a fire hazard.
The flex liner path should always be
sloped up toward the termination cap.
Step 8. Secure the top adapter to the flashing.
Use three sheet metal screws through the
side of the top adapter into the flange on
the flashing (Figure 26). Twist lock the
high wind termination cap (SDV #991)
on to the top adapter.
EXISTING
Step 7. If additional lengths of flex liner are
needed to span the chimney height, use
a flex coupler to connect the pieces of
flex liner together. Connect the flex to
the coupler by using four sheet metal
screws for each side (Figure 25).

Redrill larger holes on connector as
needed. Be careful to insure that the
connector is centered in the opening and
the mounting holes line up with the
masonry wall.
Step 10. Slide wall thimble cover (SDV #940)
over retro connector and secure with
masonry bolts (Figure 28). If you have
a framed wall in front of the masonry,
use wood screws to mount wall thimble
cover to framed wall, over retro
connector and 10” (254mm) square
framed opening (Figure 23, page 30). If
needed, add a section of direct vent pipe
to the retro connector in order to extend
through the opening in the wall thimble
cover.

NOTE: Never operate this stove with the door open.
NOTE: No electrical power supply is required for the gas control to operate. Standing pilot
allows the valve to operate with manual switch or millivolt thermostat.
WARNING: When the stove is equipped with a 24 karat gold-plated door, you
must clean all the fingerprints and oils from the gold surface before firing the stove
for the first time. Use a glass cleaner or vinegar and a towel to ensure that the oil is
removed. If not cleaned properly before firing, fingerprints or oil can cause
permanent markings on the gold plating. After the gold plating is cured, the oils
will not affect the finish and little maintenance is required; just wipe clean as needed.
Before first firing the stove, read the owner’s manual to be familiar with the stove’s features,
controls, and cautions for operation.
Remove all labels from glass before operating this stove for the first time.
Plug power cord into a properly installed outlet for blower operation.
The blower system has an on/off thermally operated snap disc that will turn the blower on
automatically when the proper temperature is reached, and will turn the blower off when it
cools down in order not to blow cool air after shut down.
The blower speed control is located behind the lower grill.
Manual on/off switch for control valve is located on the grill.
Follow the lighting instructions on page 33 of manual, or metal lighting instructions located in
lower pedestal access door.
During your first fire in the stove, you may notice an odor and steam coming from the stove.
This is normal. This is the high temperature paint finishing the curing process. Open the door
and/or windows in the home or structure for ventilation.
We recommend that you initially cycle the stove on and off, heating the stove to curing stage
for several minutes, and then turn it off to cool for five minutes. Then turn the stove back on,
and burn until the steam and/or odor no longer appears.
If odor persists, turn the gas supply to the stove off, and call your local dealer or authorized
service person to inspect the stove.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Grand Bay 40 Direct Vent Freestanding
TROUBLESHOOTING
A. Pilot won’t light
1. Make sure valve setting is in the pilot position.
2. Check for spark at igniter.
a. If no spark:
1. Check the wiring between the piezo and the igniter. If bad, fix wiring; if good,
you may have a faulty piezo or cracked ceramic on the electrode.
2. Call your Quadra-Fire dealer.
b. If there is a spark:
1. Try to light the insert with a match. The flame should either light or flutter.
a. If the flame flutters but does not light the pilot, there probably is air in the line.
Hold flame to pilot hood, then bleed the line until gas comes through.
b. If the match flame does not flutter, make sure the gas is turned on and be sure
you are pushing the knob in all the way. If this still doesn’t help, you may be
dealing with a bad valve, a blocked pilot orifice, or a kinked pilot line.
3. Call your dealer or authorized service person.
B. Pilot goes out when knob is released
1. Wait five minutes and try again. If the pilot still goes out, try again and hold the knob in
longer.
2. If the problem persists, call your dealer or authorized service person.
C. Pilot lights but burner won’t ignite
1. Make sure the knob is turned to the “on” position.
2. Turn the thermostat up.
3. If there is no thermostat, flip the manual switch on the control panel of the stove. If the
burner does not light, short out the thermostat screws on the face of valve marked TH and
TPTH. If the burner lights, you may have a problem in the wiring of the stove, and it
should be checked.
4. Check the thermostat and thermopile connections at the valve, and tighten or reconnect if
needed.
5. If the burner still will not ignite, you may have a bad valve; call your dealer or authorized
service person.
Check the pilot and burner flames periodically. When properly adjusted, they should look like the
flames in the illustration below. Call your dealer or authorized service person to have the pilot
properly adjusted.
