When installing this appliance at an elevation above
2000 feet, it may be necessary to decrease the input rating by changing the existing burner orifice to a smaller
size. Input rate should be reduced by 4% for each 1000
feet above a 2000 foot elevation in the U.S.A., or 10% for
elevations between 2000 and 4500 feet in Canada. If the
heating value of the gas has been reduced, these rules
do not apply. To identify the proper orifice size, check
with the local gas utility.
Materials that are reported as passing ASTM E 136,
Standard Test Method for Behavior of Materials in a
Vertical Tube Furnace at 750º C, shall be considered
non-combustible materials.

Getting Started
A. Design and Installation Considerations
Quadra-Fire direct vent gas appliances are designed to
operate with all combustion air siphoned from outside of
the building and all exhaust gases expelled to the outside.
No additional outside air source is required.
CAUTION
Check building codes prior to installation.
• Installation MUST comply with local, regional, state and
national codes and regulations.
• Consult insurance carrier, local building, fire officials or
authorities having jurisdiction about restrictions, installation
inspection, and permits.
Quadra-Fire gas inserts are designed for recessed installations into solid fuel masonry or factory built non-combustible
fireplaces that have been installed in accordance with the
National, Provincial, State and local building codes.
Prior to installing the gas insert:
• Have the chimney and adjacent structure inspected
and cleaned by qualified professionals. Hearth & Home
Technologies recommends that NFI or CSIA certified
professionals, or technicians under the direction of certified professionals, conduct a minimum of a NFPA 211
Level 2 inspection of the chimney.
• Replace component parts of the chimney and fireplace
as specified by the professionals.
• Ensure all joints are properly engaged and the chimney
is properly secured.
When planning an appliance installation, it’s necessary to
determine the following information before installing:
• Minimum fireplace size. See Section 3.A.
• Gas supply piping.
• Electrical wiring.
• Finishing details.
• Existing mantel projections. See Section 10.
• Whether optional accessories—devices such as a fan,
wall switch, or remote control—are desired.
B. Tools and Supplies Needed
Before beginning the installation be sure that the following
tools and building supplies are available.
C. Inspect Appliance and Components
WARNING
Inspect appliance and components for damage.
Damaged parts may impair safe operation.
• Do NOT install damaged components.
• Do NOT install incomplete components.
• Do NOT install substitute components.
Report damaged parts to dealer.
• Carefully remove the appliance and components from
the packaging.
• The vent system components, surrounds and fronts are
shipped in separate packages.
• The fiber logs may be packaged separately and must
be field installed.
• Report to your dealer any parts damaged in shipment,
particularly the condition of the glass.
• Read all of the instructions before starting the installation. Follow these instructions carefully during the
installation to ensure maximum safety and benefit.
WARNING
Hearth & Home Technologies disclaims any
responsibility for, and the warranty will be voided
by, the following actions:
• Installation and use of any damaged appliance or vent
system component.
• Modification of the appliance or vent system.
• Installation other than as instructed by Hearth & Home
Technologies.
• Improper positioning of the gas logs or the glass door.
• Installation and/or use of any component part not approved
by Hearth & Home Technologies.
Any such action may cause a fire hazard.

D. Inspect Firebox
Surface cracking or crazing of firebrick material is normal
and expected. The following types of cracks are acceptable
and do not require replacement of the unit or the firebox:
• Cracks that do not propagate entirely through the
material.
• Light fracture lines or “spider-webbing” on the surface of
the material.
• Cracks that are less than 1/32 in. wide and less than 3
in. long.
• If cosmetically unacceptable, such cracks may be
repaired with the SRV-PACK service kit. See Service
Parts List.
Cracks that are unacceptable:
• Cracks greater than 1/32 in. wide and 3 in. long are at
risk of growing.
• Cracks that penetrate entirely through the firebrick
material.
Inspection for cracking should be run when the appliance
is cool. Cracks tend to close as the appliance heats up.

Fireplace Size Requirements
A. Minimum Fireplace Opening
• The metal floor of the solid fuel firebox may be removed to
facilitate the installation of the insert. The appliance may
not be placed directly on the base of the outer wrap, a 1/4
inch airspace must be provided between the insert and
the floor of the outer wrap. Use the levelling legs to raise
the insert a minimum of 1/4 inch. The original fireplace
may never be returned to solid fuel in this condition.
The sidewalls and top structure of the firebox may not
be altered with the exception of removable baffles and
dampers.
Minimum fireplace opening requirements are shown in
Figure 5.1.
WARNING! Risk of Fire or Burns! Provide adequate
clearance around air openings and for service access.
Due to high temperatures, the appliance should be located out of traffic and away from furniture and draperies.
• The firebrick (refractory), glass doors, screen rails, screen
mesh and log grates can be removed from a factory
built firebox in order to gain minimum gas insert opening
requirements.
• Cutting of any sheet metal parts of the fireplace in which
the gas fireplace insert is to be installed is prohibited,
except the floor as tested for and as noted above.
• Any smoke shelves, shields and baffles may be removed
from the factory built firebox if attached with mechanical
fasteners.

C. Check Pilot Flame Appearance
D. After Appliance is Lit
Pilot flame must contact the thermocouple and thermopile
for reliable appliance operation.
•
Pilot flame should be as shown in Figure 12.1.
WARNING
Glass door must be in place when
appliance is operating.
Risk of:
• Combustion Fumes
• Fire
Do NOT operate appliance with glass
door removed.
• Open viewing glass for servicing only.
• Glass door MUST be in place and sealed before operating
appliance.
• Only use glass door certified for use with appliance.
• Glass replacement should be done by qualified technician.
Initial Break-in Procedure
When you light the appliance, you may notice that it produces heat which does have an associated odor or smell.
If you feel this odor is excessive it may require the initial
three to four hour continuous burn on high followed by a
second burn up to 12 hours to fully drive off any odor from
paint and lubricants used in the manufacturing process.
Condensation of the glass is normal.
Figure 12.1 Proper Pilot Flame
• If adjustment is needed remove cap screw from gas valve
using 1/8 inch standard screwdriver (see Figure 12.2).
• Turn adjustment screw clockwise to increase pilot flame
size. Make small adjustments.
PILOT
ADJUSTMENT
Note: The appliance should be run three to four hours
on the initial start-up. Turn it off and let it cool completely.
Remove and clean the glass. Replace the glass and run
the appliance for an additional 12 hours. This will help to
cure the products used in the paint and logs.
During this break-in period it is recommended that some
windows in the house be opened for air circulation. This will
help avoid setting off smoke detectors, and help eliminate any
odors associated with the appliance’s initial burning.
Figure 12.2 Adjustments
• Do NOT turn adjustment screw counter-clockwise too far
as it will come out of the valve allowing gas to escape.
• Replace cap screw and seal to prevent gas leaks.
• Check for gas leaks after tightening.

E. Frequently Asked Questions
ISSUE
SOLUTIONS
Condensation on the glass
This is a result of gas combustion and temperature variations. As the appliance warms, this
condensation will disappear.
Blue flames
This is a result of normal operation and the flames will begin to yellow as the appliance is allowed to burn for 20 to 40 minutes.
Odor from appliance
When first operated, this appliance may release an odor for the first several hours. This is
caused by the curing of the paint and the burning off of any oils remaining from manufacturing
and might set off home smoke detectors.
Film on the glass
Metallic noise
This is a normal result of the curing process of the paint and logs. Glass should be cleaned
within 3 to 4 hours of initial burning to remove deposits left by oils from the manufacturing
process. A non-abrasive cleaner such as gas fireplace glass cleaner may be necessary. See
your dealer.
Noise is caused by metal expanding and contracting as it heats up and cools down, similar to
the sound produced by a furnace or heating duct. This noise does not affect the operation or
longevity of the appliance.
Is it normal to see the pilot flame burn
In a standing pilot system the pilot will always stay on.

Troubleshooting
With proper installation, operation, and maintenance your gas appliance will provide years of trouble-free service. If you do
experience a problem, this troubleshooting guide will assist a qualified service person in the diagnosis of a problem and the
corrective action to be taken. This troubleshooting guide can only be used by a qualified service technician.
A. Standing Pilot Ignition System
Symptom
Possible Causes
Corrective Action
1. After repeated triggering a. Defective ignitor.
of the red or black piezo
ignitor button, the spark
ignitor will not light the pilot. b. Defective pilot or misaligned
electrode (spark at electrode).
Check the spark at the electrode and pilot. If no spark and electrode
wire is properly connected, replace the ignitor.
c. No gas or low gas pressure.
Check the remote shut-off valves from the fireplace. Usually, there
is a valve near the gas main. There can be more than one (1) valve
between the fireplace and the main.
d. No LP in tank.
Check the LP (propane) tank. You may be out of fuel.
a. Defective thermocouple.
Check that the pilot flame impinges on the thermocouple. Clean
and/or adjust the pilot for maximum flame impingement.
2. The pilot will not stay lit
after carefully following the
lighting instructions.
Using match, light the pilot. If the pilot lights, turn off the pilot and
trigger the red piezo ignitor button again. If the pilot lights, an improper gas/air mixture caused the bad lighting and a longer purge
period is recommended. If the pilot will not light, ensure the gap
at the electrode and pilot is one-eighth (1/8) inch to have a strong
spark. If the gap is OK, replace the pilot.
Ensure that the thermocouple connection at the gas valve is fully
inserted and tight (hand tighten plus 1/4 turn).
Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one millivolt
meter lead wire on the tip of the thermcouple and the other meter
lead wire on the thermocouple copper lead. Start the pilot and hold
the valve knob in. If the millivolt reading is less than 15mV, replace
the thermocouple.
b. Defective valve.
3. The pilot is burning,
a. ON/OFF switch or wires
there is no burner flame,

the valve knob is in the ON
position, and the ON/OFF
switch is in the ON position.
If the thermocouple is producing more than 15 millivolts, replace
faulty valve.
Check the ON/OFF switch and wires for proper connections. Place
the jumper wires across the terminals at the switch. If the burner
comes on, replace the defective switch. If the switch is OK, place the
jumper wires across the switch wires at the gas valve. If the burner
comes on, the wires are faulty or connections are bad.
b. Thermopile may not be gener- If the pilot flame is not close enough physically to the thermopile,
ating sufficient millivoltage.
adjust the pilot flame.
Be sure the wire connections from the thermopile at the gas valve
terminals are tight and that the thermopile is fully inserted into the
pilot bracket.
Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take the reading at
TH-TP&TP terminals of the gas valve. The meter should read 325
millivolts minimum, while holding the valve knob depressed in the
pilot position, with the pilot lit, and the ON/OFF switch in the OFF
position. Replace the faulty thermopile if the reading is below the
specified minimum.
With the pilot in the ON position, disconnect the thermopile leads
from the valve. Take a reading at the thermopile leads. The reading should be 325 millivolts minimum. Replace the thermopile if the
reading is below the minimum.
