LISTINGS
These installation instructions describe the installation and operation of the Quadra-Fire 2700-I Wood Insert. This insert meets the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 1990 particulate emission
standards. The 2700-I is listed by OMNI-Test Laboratories, Inc.
(Report No. 061-S-52-2), to UL Safety Standard 1482, and ULC
S628-93, and (UM) 84-HUD. The 2700-I is approved for mobile
home installations when not installed in a sleeping room and when
an outside combustion air inlet is provided. The structural integrity
of the mobile home floor, ceiling, and walls must be maintained.
The insert must be properly grounded to the frame of the mobile
home.
Check with your local building code agency before you begin your
installation to ensure compliance with local codes, including the
need for permits and follow-up inspections. Be sure local building
codes do not supersede UL specifications. Always obtain a building
permit so that insurance protection benefits cannot be unexpectedly
cancelled. If any assistance is required during installation, please
contact your local dealer.
CHIMNEY HEIGHT/DRAFT
To be sure that your Quadra-Fire insert burns properly, the chimney
draft (static pressure) should be approximately -0.10 inches water
column (W.C.) during a high burn and -0.04 inches W.C. during a
low burn, measured 6 inches (152mm) above the top of the insert
after one hour of operation at each burn setting.
NOTE: These are guidelines only, and may vary somewhat for
individual installations.
Your Quadra-Fire insert was designed for and tested on a 6 inch
(152mm) chimney, 12 ft-14 ft (360-420cm) high, measured from
the base of the insert. In addition, exterior conditions such as
roof line, surrounding trees, prevailing winds and nearby hills can
influence insert’s performance. Your local dealer is the expert in
your geographic area and can usually make suggestions or discover
solutions that will easily correct your flue problem.
CHIMNEY HEIGHT/DRAFT (CONT’D)
AVOID FIRE: To ensure that insulation or any other combustible
material does not contact the chimney, a chimney inside the house
must have at least 2 inches (51mm) of air space clearance around
the chimney. A chimney outside the house must have at least 1
inch (25mm) clearance to the combustible structure. Non-combustible fire stops must be installed at the spaces where the chimney
passes through floors and/or ceilings. Refer to Figures 7.1 & 7.2
on page 7. Canadian installations require a full reline of the
chimney.
NOTE: Clearances may only be reduced by means approved by
the regulatory authority having jurisdiction.
WE RECOMMEND that a qualified building inspector and your
insurance company representative review your plans before
installation.
installation recommendations
The Quadra-Fire 2700-I Insert has met and surpassed the most
stringent emissions standards in the United States. The sophistication of the interior firebox design requires that a proper draft be supplied by the chimney, therefore adherence to the following factors
will enable your insert to operate at its optimum capability.
required: Direct connection to the first flue liner in accordance
with the requirements of the NFPA 211. In USA a full chimney
liner for factory-built fireplaces is recommended but is required in
Canada.
best: A complete relining of the chimney system with a 6 inch
(152mm) diameter listed, stainless liner. Required for factory-built
fireplace installations in Canada, recommended in USA. The sections
must be attached to the insert and to each other with the crimped
(male) end pointing toward the insert. See Figure 5.2. All joints,
including the connection at the flue collar, should be secured with
three sheet metal screws. Make sure to follow the minimum clearances to combustibles as set out on page 4 of the manual.
A masonry chimney or a listed factory-built UL103 HT Class “A”
chimney must be the required height above the roof and any other
nearby obstructions. The chimney must be at least 3 ft (91cm) higher
than the highest point where it passes through the roof and at least
2 ft (61cm) higher than the highest part of the roof or structure that
is within 10 ft (305cm) of the chimney, measured horizontally. See
2-10-3 Rule (Figure 5.1). These are safety requirements and
are not meant to assure proper flue draft.

Design, Installation & Location
Calculating Alternate
Floor Protection
Consideration must be given to:
Material
Thermal Conductivity: k value
The k value indicates the amount of heat (in BTU’s) that will flow
in 1 hour through 1 square foot of a uniform material 1 inch thick
for each degree (F) of temperature difference from one side of
the material to the other. The LOWER the k factor means less
heat is being conducted through the non-combustible material to
the combustible material beneath it. The k value of a material
must be equal or smaller then the required k value to be acceptable.
(BTU) (inch)
(foot2 (hour) (oF)
Thermal Resistance: R value
The R value is a measure of a material’s resistance to heat
transfer. R value is convenient when more than one material
is used since you can add the R values together, whereas
you can not do this for k value. The HIGHER the R factor
means less heat is being conducted through the non-combustible material to the combustible material beneath it. The
R value of a material must be equal or larger then the required R value to be acceptable.
We recommend that a qualified building inspector and your
insurance company representative review your plans before
and after installation.
If this appliance is in an area where children may be near it is
recommended that you purchase a decorative barrier to go
in front of the appliance. Remember to always keep children
away while it is operating and do not let anyone operate
this appliance unless they are familiar with these operating
instructions.
WARNING
Fire Risk.
Divide 1 by k and multiply the results times the thickness in inches of the material.
R = 1/k x inches of thickness
Converting R to k:
•
•
•
Divide the inches of thickness by R.
k = inches of thickness/R
Calculations:
•
Example: Floor protection requires k value of 0.84 and 3/4 inch
thick.
•
Alternative material has a k value of 0.6 and is 3/4 inch thick.
•
Divide 0.6 by .75 = k value of 0.80. This k value is smaller than
0.84 and therefore is acceptable.
•

OPERATION
WOOD SELECTION AND STORAGE
2. Place several wads of crushed paper on the firebox floor.
Burn only dry seasoned wood. Dry, well-seasoned wood will
not only minimize the chance of creosote formation but will
give you the most efficient heat output. Even dry wood contains at least 15% moisture by weight and should be burned
hot enough to keep the chimney hot enough to maintain particulate (smoke) burning. Burning unseasoned wood of any
variety defeats the stoves’ efficiency.
4. Ensure that no matches or other combustibles are in the
immediate area of the insert, that the room is adequately
ventilated, and the flue is unobstructed.
Dead wood lying on the forest floor should be considered
wet, and requires full seasoning time. Standing wood can
be considered to be about two-thirds seasoned. Wood is dry
enough to burn if the ends of the logs have cracks radiating in
all directions from the center. If your wood sizzles in the fire,
even though the surface is dry, it may not be fully cured.
Drying time can be reduced by splitting wood prior to storage. Since the majority of drying occurs through the cut ends
rather than the sides, stack the wood so both ends of each
piece are exposed to air. Store wood under cover, such as
in a shed, or covered with a tarp, plastic, tar paper, sheets of
scrap plywood, etc.
OVERFIRING
Do not overfire. Overfiring can result in crazing, an effect
causing a white, non-removable film to be deposited on the
inside of the glass. Using flammable liquids or too much
wood, or burning trash in the insert, may result in overfiring.
If the chimney connector or insert glows red, or worse, white,
the insert is overfired. This condition may ignite creosote in
the chimney, possibly causing a house fire. If any part of the
insert starts to glow, you are in an overfire situation. If you
overfire, immediately close the insert dampers and door, if
open, to reduce the air supply to the fire. Overfiring your
insert voids your warranty.
3. Open Start-Up Air Control (right control) and Primary Air
Control (center control under ashlip) fully. Figure 18.1
on page 18.
5. Light the paper in the insert. NEVER light or rekindle insert
with kerosene, gasoline, or charcoal lighter fluid; the results
can be fatal.
6. Once the kindling is burning quickly, add several full-length
logs 3 inches (76mm) or 4 inches (102mm) in diameter. Be
careful not to smother the fire. Stack the pieces of wood
carefully: near enough to keep each other hot, but far
enough away from each other to allow adequate air flow
between them.
7. When ready to reload the insert, add more logs. Large logs
burn slowly, holding a fire longer. Small logs burn fast and
hot, giving quick heat.
8. Adjust the Start-Up Air Control and Primary Air Control,
maintaining flames above the fuel. The more you close
down the Primary Control, the lower and slower the fire
will burn. The more you open the Primary Control the
more heat will be produced. The Start-Up Air Control
(right control) is only used for the first 5 to 15 minutes.
As long as there are hot coals, repeating steps 7 and 8 will
maintain a continuous fire.
WARNING
Fire Risk.
• Do NOT burn with insert door open.
Fire Risk.
Keep combustible materials, gasoline and other
flammable vapors and liquids clear of appliance.
• Do NOT store flammable materials in the

BUILDING A FIRE
NOTE: Remove all labels from glass front prior to lighting
the first fire and refer to plated surfaces care on page 19 .
Before lighting your first fire in the insert, make certain that
the baffle is correctly positioned. It should be resting against
the rear support.
There are many ways to build a fire. The basic principle
is to light easily-ignitable tinder or paper, which ignites the
fast burning kindling, which in turn ignites the slow-burning
firewood. Here is one method that works well:
1. Place several wads of crushed paper on the firebox floor.
Heating flue with slightly crumpled newspaper before
adding kindling keeps smoke to a minimum.

OPERATING TIPS
For maximum operating efficiency with the lowest emissions,
follow these operating procedures:
1.
Regardless of desired heat output, when loading insert,
burn your Quadra-Fire with both air controls wide open for
a minimum of 5 to 15 minutes.
2.
Regulate burn rate (heat output) by using the Primary Control (center control under ashlip). The Start-Up Air Control
(right control) is mainly for initial start-up and reloading.
3.
Heat output settings: Follow burn rate instructions listed
below.
4. Burn only dry, well-seasoned wood.

Air is closed. It is very important to maintain flames in your
insert during the first few hours of a low burn to avoid excessive
air pollution.
OPACITY
Opacity is the measure of how clean your insert is burning and
is measured in percentages. An opacity of 100% in the smoke
column from a chimney will totally obscure an object. Whereas
0% opacity means that no smoke column can be seen. A periodic check of the opacity emitted from your chimney will enable
you to burn your insert as smoke free as possible.
fan operating instructions
These are approximate settings, and will vary with type of
wood or chimney draft.
1. Initial (cold) startup: Leave fan off until your insert is hot
and a good coal bed is established, approximately 30 minutes after fuel is lit.
2. High Burn Setting: The fan may be left on throughout the
burn.
3. Medium or Medium High Burn Setting: The fan should
be left off until a good burn is established, then turned on a
medium or high rate.
WARNING
Fire Risk
4. Low Burn Setting: The fan tends to cool the insert. Leave
fan off until the burn is well established; then, if you wish, turn
the fan on at a low rate.
• Do NOT operate with Start-Up Air Control in
open position in excess of 15 minutes.
• Risk of extreme temperatures!
Prolonged operation with Start-Up Air Control in open
position may cause combustible materials around
appliance to exceed safe temperature limits.
NOTE:
• Build fire on brick firebox floor.
• Do NOT use grates, andirons or other methods to support fuel.
It will adversely affect emissions.
BURN RATES
STARTING FIRE: Open both controls (push in) completely.
After a wood load has been burning on high for 5 to 15 minutes
or longer for very large pieces, close the Start-Up Air Control
(bottom rod) by pulling it out.
HIGH: Leave the Primary Air Control fully open (immediately
under the ashcatcher). It is especially important to fully open
both controls when reloading the insert as failure to do so could
result in excessive emissions, also referred to as ‘opacity’.
5.The fan is equipped with a rheostat (speed control). The
highest fan speed is obtained by turning the rheostat on, then
adjusting back towards “OFF” as far as possible without turning the fan off. For a low fan speed, turn the control knob
clockwise as far as possible.
ASH REMOVAL
Remove cold ashes (not hot) from the insert at regular intervals,
depending on your usage. Ashes should be placed in a metal
container with a tight fitting lid. The closed container of ashes
should be placed on a non-combustible floor or on the ground,
well away from all combustible materials, pending final disposal.
If the ashes are disposed of by burial in soil or otherwise locally
dispersed, they should be retained in the closed container until
all cinders have thoroughly cooled. Always treat ashes as if
they contain hot coals.
WARNING
After a wood load has been burning on high for 5 to 15
minutes on High to achieve the following burn rates set
the controls as listed below:
MEDIUM HIGH: Close the Primary Air Control to 1/4 inch to
1.0 inch (6mm to 25mm) open. Start-Up Air is closed.
MEDIUM: Close the Primary Air Control to 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch
(3mm to 6mm) open. Start-Up Air is closed.

air quality AND your
Quadra-Fire Insert
START-UP AIR SYSTEM
In recent years there has been an increasing concern about
the quality of our air. Much of the blame for poor air quality
has been placed on the burning of wood for home heating.
In order to improve this situation we at Quadra-Fire have
developed cleaner burning inserts that surpass the stringent
requirements for emissions established by our governing
agencies. Your 2700-I, like any other appliance, must be
properly operated in order to ensure that they perform the
way they are designed to perform. Improper operation and
maintenance may cause any wood burning unit to release
more particulate, adversely affecting the environment.
The combustion air enters at the rear of the firebox through
the rear air tubes. This air supply is controlled by the StartUp Air Control.
PRIMARY AIR SYSTEM
The primary air enters at the upper front of the firebox near
the top of the glass door. This preheated air supplies the
necessary fresh oxygen to mix with the unburned gases,
helping to create secondary, tertiary and quaternary combustion. This air is regulated by the Primary Air Control. For
more primary air (more heat), push rod in. For less primary
air (less heat), pull rod out. Figure 18.1.
The story of the Three Burning Stages . . .
In other words . . .
It helps to know a little about the actual burn process, which
entails three discernible burning stages. The first stage is
called the kindling stage. During this stage the fuel reaches
the boiling temperature of water, 212°F, evaporating the
moisture found to some degree in all wood.
Pulling either control towards you closes off the air available to the insert in that area. Pushing either control opens
it, allowing air circulation to the area. A good analogy to
remember for this procedure is the gas pedal on your car.
Pushing in the gas pedal makes the engine run faster. Letting off (pulling the control back) makes the car run slower.
Because the process takes heat from the insert during this
initial drying stage, each new load of wood reduces the
chances for a good, clean burn. For this reason it is always
best to burn dry, seasoned firewood, and operate the controls properly. The bottom control on the right side of your
insert is called the Start-Up Air Control and is used primarily during this first kindling stage of burning.
During the secondary stage, the wood gives off flammable
gases which burn above the fuel with bright flames. These
flames above the fuel must be maintained until the third
stage to ensure proper burning. During this stage you may
adjust your insert for a low burn rate. To achieve a low
burn rate it is necessary to close down the air while still
maintaining some flames. If the flames tend to go out, the
setting is too low. The Primary Control, located under the
ashlip, will assist you in adjusting the insert for a low burn
rate.
The third stage of burning is the charcoal stage. This happens when the flammable gases have been burned and the
charcoal remains. The coals burning with hot blue flames
is a naturally clean portion of the burn. It is very important
to reload your insert while enough lively hot coals remain
in order to provide the amount of heat needed to dry and
rekindle the next load of wood. Open up both controls for
a short while before reloading to liven up the coal bed. You
should also break up any large chunks and distribute the
coals so the new wood is laid on hot coals. Leave both controls open until the new wood load is burning well enough
to maintain the secondary stage of burning and then set
controls to your desired heat output setting.

MAINTENANCE
CREOSOTE (CHIMNEY) CLEANING
CLEANING PLATED SURFACES
IMPORTANT: You must clean all the fingerprints and oils
from the plated surfaces before firing the insert for the first
time. Use warm soapy water and a soft rag, glass cleaner
and a paper towel, or vinegar and a paper towel to remove
the oils. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners! If not cleaned
properly prior to lighting the first fire, the oils can cause permanent stains. The plating will be cured upon firing of the
insert and oils will no longer affect the finish. Subsequently,
little maintenance is then required. Wipe clean as needed
with a soft towel.
GLASS CLEANING
Quadra-Fire inserts are equipped with super heat resistant
ceramic glass which can only be broken by impact or misuse.
Clean glass with any non-abrasive glass cleaner. Abrasive
cleaners may scratch and cause glass to crack. Inspect
glass regularly. If you find a crack or break, immediately put
the fire out and return the door to your authorized dealer for
replacement of glass before further use. Do not substitute
materials for glass replacement.
CAUTION
Handle glass assembly with care.
Glass
Assembly
When cleaning glass:
• Avoid striking, scratching or
slamming glass.
• Do NOT clean glass when hot.
•
•
•
•
Do NOT use abrasive cleaners.
Use a hard water deposit glass cleaner on white film.
Use commercial oven cleaner on heavier deposits.
Remove all residue of oven cleaner or will permanently
stain glass on next firing.
• Refer to maintenance instructions.
Remove all ash from the firebox and extinguish all hot embers
before disposal. Allow the appliance to cool completely.
Disconnect flue pipe or remove baffle and ceramic blanket from
appliance before cleaning chimney. Otherwise residue can pile
up on top of the baffle and ceramic blanket and the appliance
will not work properly. (See Baffle Removal on page 20). Close
the door tightly. The creosote or soot should be removed with
a brush specifically designed for the type of chimney in use.
Clean out fallen ashes from the firebox. A chimney sweep can
perform this service.
It is also recommended that before each heating season the
entire system be professionally inspected, cleaned and repaired
if necessary.
Inspection: Inspect the system at the appliance connection
and at the chimney top. Cooler surfaces tend to build creosote
deposits quicker, so it is important to check the chimney from
the top as well as from the bottom.
Formation and Need For Removal: When wood is burned
slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapors which combine
with expelled moisture to form creosote. The creosote vapors
condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a newly-started or
a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on
the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote creates an extremely
hot fire which may damage the chimney or even destroy the
house. The chimney connector and chimney should be inspected
once every 2 months during the heating season to determine
if a creosote or soot buildup has occurred. If creosote or soot
has accumulated, it should be removed to reduce the risk of a
chimney fire.
If your type of installation is direct connect within a masonry
chimney, the insert will need to be pulled out from the fireplace and disconnected from the flue prior to cleaning the
chimney. The creosote can either be caught in a large garbage bag secured to the pipe or swept and vacuumed out
of the fireplace. Reconnect the pipe and re-install the insert
following installation instructions in this manual.
GLASS REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Replace with 5mm ceramic glass only
1. Remove door from insert and lay on a padded flat surface.
2. Remove glass retainer screws using a Phillips screw driver.
3. Lift glass out of the door frame and/or side frames.
4. Lay new glass with fiberglass tape around it into door
frame and/or side frames.
5. Place glass retainers over the fiberglass tape on the
edges of the glass and re-install screws. Be sure glass
is centered in the opening (i.e. same space top and
bottom, left and right).
6. Tighten screws enough to hold frame and glass in place.
7. Check again for centering of glass in door and/or side
frames and give all screws a final tightening.
