Introduction
About the BF36-Series Power Vented Fireplaces:
Installing The Fireplace
The BF36-Series-Gas fireplace is available in Single Sided or See
Through
To install the fireplace:
 BF36-SS Natural Gas and Propane, at 110,000 BTU/H (31.90
Kilowatts) Input.
The fireplace system is an engineered fireplace system, and will
require you to provide the correct vent run and air supply information
to the Engineering staff of Montigo.
 BF36-ST Linear Burner, Natural Gas and Propane, at 115,000
BTU/H (33.35 Kilowatts) Input.
Warranty and Installation Information:
The Montigo warranty will be voided by, and Montigo disclaims any
responsibility for, the following actions:
Modification of the fireplace and/or components including the vent
assembly or glass doors.
Use of any component part not manufactured or approved by
Montigo in combination with this Montigo fireplace system.
Installation other than as instructed in this manual.
Consult your local Gas Inspection Branch on installation requirements
for factory-built gas fireplaces. Installation & repairs should be done
by a qualified contractor.
Installations in Canada must conform to the current CAN/CGA
B-149.1 and .2 Gas Installation Code and local regulations. This appliance must be electrically grounded in accordance with CSA C22.1
Canadian Electrical Code Part 1 and/or Local Codes.
Installations in the USA must conform to local codes, or in the
absense of local codes to the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.11988. The appliance must be grounded in accordance with local
codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70-1987.
Within the State of Massachusetts this fireplace must comply with
NFPA-54 Chapter 10.
Warranty and Installation Information:
The Montigo warranty will be voided by, and Montigo disclaims any
responsibility for, the following actions:
Modification of the fireplace and/or components including vent
assembly or glass doors.
Use of any component part not manufactured or approved by
Montigo in combination with this Montigo fireplace system.
Installation other than as instructed in this manual.
Consult your local Gas Inspection Branch on installation requirements
for factory-built gas fireplaces. Installation & repairs should be done
by a qualified contractor.
WARNING!
After this initial consultation with Montigo we will specify the correct
power vent model for your project. The fireplace can be installed on
any combustible platform, as there will be no heat transfer to the base
of the fireplace
Fresh Air Supply:
Connect all of the fresh air supply for this fireplace to the lower vent
connections assuring no reduction or restriction to the air supply occurs, even due to unexpected circumstances. Please consider automated dampers, particularly on the intake air supply in cold climates.
This is especially important when the intake air is introduced from the
top down. Cold air has the tendency to settle to the lowest point in the
vent system.
For extra long air supply runs, Montigo will recommend an increase in
vent diameter. When changing the air supply from several incoming
air connections to one vent, consult this information with your contact
at Montigo. To ensure adequate operation of the vent system ensure
the size of the one vent is not less than the total sum of vents that you
are connecting to.
Flue Gas vent run:
The fireplace system may be installed with any certified UL or ULC
B-Vent. All the clearances to this B-Vent must be equivalent to the
manufacture’s specifications as outlined in the installation/operation
manual. The size of this B-vent is specified in the approval process
and cannot be reduced unless Montigo has re-evaluated your system.
If authorized to reduce your vent size you will be issued new shop
drawings reflecting the new vent connection size and specifications.
The vent system may be installed vertically or horizontally, to any
length, and may have numerous elbows (information of quantity as
supplied to Montigo). Montigo will then re-evaluate this information
and size the Power Vent to the vent restriction, and compensate for
the pressure drop.
Power Vent:
Montigo manufactures a variety of Power vent modules as large as
5KWatts. The Power vent is commonly placed either horizontally or
vertically at the end of the B-Vent run. However, we have an in-line
vent module available. This Inline Power vent is for installations
where an exterior module isn’t visually attractive, or permitted.
Also, In-line Power vents are more complex to install, primarily due to
the positive pressure in the vent system after the Power vent module.
Therefore this vent run after the Power vent module must be air-tight
due too the concern gas by-products may leak from the vent into the
structure.
All Power vent modules create a negative pressure before the module
and leaks in the vent draw air from the building and will not create a
safety hazard.
When this appliance is installed directly on carpeting, tile or any
combustible material other than wood flooring, it must be installed
on a metal or wood panel extending the full width and depth of
the appliance.

 An intake grill will have to be installed with the same size of the total opening
as the combined air supply ducts on the unit. Make sure you have calculated
the restriction and selected the proper grill size.
 The BF-SS fireplace is supplied with two or more combustion air duct
connection points. Do not reduce the size of the air supply system, or
restrict the air supply in any way. On any combustion air supply run longer
than 10 feet the duct should be increased in size to prevent a restriction.
 A vacuum safety switch, located under the burners, will monitor the combustion
air supply pressure and will prevent the burner from igniting, or continuing
to burn if the pressure is negative, past 0.08WC.
 For extremely long air supply runs the combustion air supply will have to
be power assisted.

Honeywell Gas
 Have the fireplace installation inspected yearly, including a visual
check of the vent system, the burner and the pilot flame. For your
convenience a 1/8" manifold pressure tap is supplied on the gas
valve for a test gauge connection. See Figure 17.
 For Natural Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure
of 5.5" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 3.5" W.C.
 For Propane Gas this appliance requires a minimum inlet pressure of 11" W.C. and a manifold pressure of 10" W.C.
 Always keep the fireplace area clear and free of combustible
materials, as well as gasoline and other flammable vapours and
liquids.
 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.
 Glass must be cleaned periodically to remove any film (which
is a normal biproduct of combustion) which may be visible. Film
can easily be removed by removing the door, as shown on page
8. Handle the door carefully, and clean it with non-abrasive glass
cleaners. One of the most effective products is Kel Kem.
