COLD CLIMATE INSULATION
NOTE
PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS
If you live in a cold climate, seal all cracks
around your appliance, and wherever cold air
could enter the room, with noncombustible
material. It is especially important to insulate
the outside chase cavity between the studs
and under the floor on which the appliance
rests, if the floor is above ground level.

Your fireplace is equipped with an intermittent pilot ignition
(IPI) control. An IPI control with a standing pilot option provides the dual benefit of an economical and environmentally
responsible product and one which lights easily even in
the coldest climates. When in intermittent pilot mode (as
it comes from the factory), your pilot remains unlit until
needed, saving you fuel. Standing pilot mode, by comparison, is characterized by a continuously burning pilot.
The benefit of a pilot which lights only when needed is fuel
savings. However, with no pilot burning in your fireplace,
units operating in colder climates may experience delayed
start up or lock out. Because colder air is heavier than
milder air and there is no pilot burning to maintain a warm
stable temperature in your firebox, establishing a draft to
aid ignition becomes difficult. This is perfectly normal but
can be somewhat frustrating.
To remedy this issue, your fireplace has been designed with
a cold climate pilot option, which, when active, maintains
a warmer temperature inside your firebox to make ignition
faster and more efficient. Operating your appliance in cold
climate (aka standing) pilot mode will prohibit the need for
5

multiple ignition attempts and will prevent the system from
delaying start up or locking out.
To activate the cold climate option, simply move the cold
climate toggle switch located on the right side of the black
control center to the “On” (left) position. (Figure 2) You can
operate your appliance in this mode regardless of whether
you are using a remote control, wall switch or thermostat.

This fireplace must be vented to the
outside. The venting system must NEVER
be attached to a chimney serving a separate
solid fuel burning appliance. Each gas
appliance must use a separate vent system.
Do not use common vent systems.
Do not pack the open air spaces with
insulation or other materials. This could
cause high temperatures and may present
a fire hazard.
NOTICE
WARNING
Read all instructions completely and
thoroughly before attempting installation.
Failure to do so could result in serious injury,
property damage or loss of life. Operation
of improperly installed and maintained
venting system could result in serious injury,
property damage or loss of life.
WARNING
WARNING
36CFDV Series Gas Fireplace
Failure to follow these instructions will
void the warranty.
INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS
Consult local building codes before beginning the
installation. The installer must make sure to select the
proper vent system for installation. Before installing vent
kit, the installer must read this fireplace manual and vent
kit instructions.
Only a qualified installer/service person should install venting system. The installer must follow these safety rules:
• Wear gloves and safety glasses for protection.
• Use extreme caution when using ladders or when on
rooftops.
• Be aware of electrical wiring locations in walls and
ceilings.
VENTING INSTALLATION
GENERAL VENTING
Your fireplace is approved to be vented either through the
side wall, or vertical through the roof.
•
Only Vermont Castings Group venting components
specifically approved and labeled for this fireplace
may be used.
•
Flexible UL1777 listed venting may be used in any venting application where rigid direct vent components can
be used. All restrictions, clearances and allowances that
pertain to the rigid piping apply to the flexible venting.
Flex kits may not be modified. Flex kits may be added to
the end of a vent run made of rigid vent sections using
pipe manufacturer's approved flex to pipe adapters. This
may occur only if doing so does not violate any of the
venting length, height, routing, horizontal to vertical ratio
requirements or clearance considerations detailed in this
manual.
•
Venting terminals shall not be recessed into a wall or siding.
•
Select the amount of vertical rise desired. All horizontal
run of venting must have 1/4" rise for every 12" (305 mm)
of run towards the termination below 71/2 feet of vertical
rise. With 71/2 feet (2.3 m) or more vertical rise off top of
fireplace, the horizontal run may run level. NEVER run
vent piping downward.
•
Horizontal venting which incorporates the twist lock pipe
must be installed on a level plane without an inclining or
declining slope.
•
Horizontal venting which incorporates the use of flex
venting shall have an inclining slope from the unit of 1"
(25 mm) per 24" (610 mm).
There must not be any obstruction such as bushes, garden sheds, fences, decks or utility buildings within 24"
(610 mm) from the front of the termination hood.
Do not locate termination hood where excessive snow or
ice build up may occur. Be sure to check vent termination area after snow falls, and clear to prevent accidental
blockage of venting system. When using snow blowers,
make sure snow is not directed towards vent termination
area.
Location of Vent Termination
It is imperative the vent termination be located observing
the minimum clearances as shown on following page.
The following actions will void the warranty on your venting system:
• Installation of any damaged venting component.
• Unauthorized modification of the venting system.
• Installation of any component part not manufactured
or approved by Vermont Castings Group.
• Installation other than permitted by these instructions.

REAR VENT INSTALLATION ONLY
When using twist lock pipe it is not necessary to use sealant on the joints.
Install the 4" (102 mm) inner vent pipe to the appliance
inner collar and secure with three (3) stainless steel sheet
metal screws. Figure 19. Install the 7" (178 mm) outer
vent pipe to the appliance outer collar. Secure pipe to the
rear cover plate using the tabs and three (3) sheet metal
screws. Figure 20. If a 45° or 90° elbow is being used, attach the elbow to the appliance in the same manner then
attach the venting to the elbow.
To join twist lock pipes together, simply align the beads of
the male end with the grooves of the female end, twisting
the pipe until the flange on the female end contacts external flange on the male end. It is recommended that you
secure the joints with three (3) sheet metal screws, however, this is not mandatory with twist lock pipe. Figure 18
NOTE: Sealant is not required to assemble fireplace
venting. Do not use silicone sealant at the inner flue
exhaust connections.
To make it easier to assembly the joints, we suggest putting a lubricant (Vaseline or similar) on the male end of the
twist lock pipe prior to assembly.

VENTING INSTALLATION
The Vent Graph should be read in conjunction with the
following vent installation instructions to determine the relationship between the vertical and horizontal dimensions
of the vent system.
1. Determine the height of the center of the horizontal
vent pipe exiting through the outer wall. Using this
dimension on the Side wall Vent Graph, Figure 21, locate the point intersecting with the slanted graph line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical line
to the bottom of the graph.
3. Select the indicated dimension, and position the fireplace in accordance with same.
EXAMPLE A:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is 11' (3.4
m) the horizontal run to the face of the outer wall must not
exceed 14' (4.3 m).
EXAMPLE B:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is 7' (2.1
m), the horizontal run to the face of the outer wall must not
exceed 8' (2.4 m).

NOTE: When using flex vent, the opening will have to be
measured according to the 1" (25 mm) rise in 24" (610
mm) vertical run.
Combustible Walls: Cut a 95⁄8" H x 95⁄8" W (244 x 244
mm) hole through the exterior wall and frame as shown.
Figure 24
Noncombustible Walls: Hole opening should be 71⁄2"
(191 mm) diameter.

Install the 4" (102 mm) vent to the appliance collar and
secure with 3 sheet metal screws. Install the 7" (178 mm)
vent pipe to the appliance collar and secure with 3 sheet
metal screws. It is not necessary to seal this connection.
If a 45° elbow is being used attach the elbow to the appliance in the same manner then attach the venting to the
elbow.
It is critical that there is no downward slope
away from the appliance when connecting
the vent or elbow.
Step 5
Guide the venting through the vent hole as you place the
appliance in its installed position. Guide the 4" (102 mm)
and 7" (178 mm) collar of the vent termination into the
outer ends of the venting. Do not force the termination. If
the vent pipes do not align with the termination, remove
and realign the venting at the appliance flue collars. Figure 25. Attach the termination to the wall as outlined in the

The Vent Graph, showing the relationship between vertical and horizontal side wall venting, will help to determine
the various dimensions allowable.
Follow Steps 1 and 2 on Page 18.
Step 3
Install the 4" (102 mm) flex vent pipe to the appliance collars described in “General Information Assembling Vent
Pipes,” Page 14. If the installation requires a 45° angle,
grasp the vent pipe close to the appliance collar and bend
to 45°. DO NOT exceed 45°. Figure 26
Install the 7" vent pipe in the same manner as Step 2.
NOTE: There must be a 1⁄2" (13 mm) rise in a 12" (305
mm) length of flex vent.
Step 4
Assemble the flex vent to the collars on the termination as
you did on the appliance.
Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible materials is 3" (76 mm) on top, and 1" (25 mm) on
the bottom and sides unless otherwise noted.
When vent termination exits through foundations less
than 20" (508 mm) below siding outcrop, the vent pipe
must flush up with the siding.
It is best to locate the fireplace in such a way that minimizes the number of offsets and horizontal vent length.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent
pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace (or the top of the
Transition Elbow) to the face of the outer wall.
Horizontal plane means no vertical rise exists on this portion of the vent assembly.
Termination
When installing the appliance as a rear vent unit, the
90° or 45° Transition Elbow attached directly to the
rear of the unit is NOT INCLUDED in the following criteria and calculations, and unless specifically mentioned should be ignored when calculating venting
layouts.
Firestop
Flex Section
Appliance
Since it is very important that the venting system
maintain its balance between the combustion air intake and the flue gas exhaust, certain limitations as
to vent configurations apply and must be strictly adhered to.

Step 5
Slide the 7" (178 mm) flex vent pipe over the 4" flex vent
pipe and secure the 7" collar as described on Page 14.
Step 6
Bend the flex pipe horizontal so the bottom of the horizontal pipe measure 61⁄2" (165 mm) from the top of the unit
immediately after the 90° formation. Figure 40. Be sure to
follow the 1⁄2" (13 mm) rise in a 12" (305 mm) horizontal
run rule.
When it is not possible to meet the required vent terminal
clearances of 12" (305 mm) above grade level, a snorkel kit is recommended. It allows installation depth down
to 7" (178 mm) below grade level. The 7" (178 mm) is
measured from the center of the horizontal vent pipe as it
penetrates through the wall.
Ensure the side wall venting clearances are observed.
If venting system is installed below ground, we recommend a window well with adequate and proper
drainage to be installed around the termination area.
If installing a snorkel, a minimum 24" (610 mm) vertical
rise is necessary. The maximum horizontal run with the
24" vertical pipe is 36" (914 mm). This measurement is
taken from the collar of the fireplace (or transition elbow)
to the face of the exterior wall. See the Side wall Venting
Graph for extended horizontal run if the vertical exceeds
24" (610 mm).
1. Establish vent hole through the wall. Page 22, Figure 36
2. Remove soil to a depth of approximately 16" (406 mm)
below base of snorkel. Install drain pipe. Install window

INSTALLATION ITEMS NEEDED
CAUTION
For propane/LP connections only, the installer must supply
an external regulator. The external regulator will reduce
incoming gas pressure. You must reduce incoming gas
pressure to between 11 and 13 inches of water. If you do
not reduce incoming gas pressure, burner system regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with the
vent pointing down as shown in Figure 51. Pointing the
vent down protects it from freezing rain or sleet.
FP1977
Figure 51 –

CAUTION
Before installing fireplace and burner system, make sure
you have the items listed below.
• External regulator
• Piping (check local codes)
• Equipment shutoff valve* • Test gauge connection*
• Tee joint
• Pipe wrench
• Sediment trap (recommended)
• Sealant (resistant to propane/LP gas)
(supplied by installer)
• approved flexible gas line with gas connector (if
allowed by local codes — not provided)
* A CSA design-certified equipment shutoff valve with
1/8" NPT tap is an acceptable alternative to test
gauge connection. Purchase the CSA design-certified
equipment shutoff valve from your dealer.
Use only new black iron or steel pipe.
Internally tinned copper or copper tubing
can be used per National Fuel Code, Section
2.6.3, providing gas meets hydrogen sulfide
limits, and where permitted by local codes.
Gas piping system must be sized to provide
minimum inlet pressure (listed on data plate)
at the maximum flow rate (BTU/hr). Undue
pressure loss will occur if the pipe is too
small.
When using copper or flex connectors use only fittings
approved for gas connections. The gas control inlet is
3/8" NPT.
For propane/LP units, never connect
fireplace directly to the propane/LP supply.
This burner system requires an external
regulator (not supplied). Install the external
regulator between the burner system and
propane/LP supply.

WARNING
GAS PIPE INSTALLATION
Only persons licensed to work with natural
or lp gas may make the necessary gas
connections to this appliance.
NOTE: The gas line connection may be made using 1/2"
rigid tubing or an approved flex connector. Since some
municipalities have additional local codes it is always best
to consult your local authorities and the current edition of
the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI.Z223.1, NFPA54. In
Canada CSA-B149 (1 or 2) Installation Code.
A listed manual shutoff valve must be installed upstream of
the appliance. Union tee and plugged 1/8" NPT pressure
tapping point should be installed upstream of the appliance. Figure 52
IMPORTANT: Install main gas valve (equipment shutoff
valve) in an accessible location. The main gas valve is for
turning on or shutting off the gas to the fireplace.
CAUTION
Check your building codes for any special requirements for
locating equipment shutoff valve to fireplaces.
A manual shutoff valve must be installed
upstream of the appliance. Union tee
and plugged 1/8" NPT pressure tapping
point should be installed upstream of the
appliance. Figure 52
CAUTION
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male threads. This will
prevent excess sealant from going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could result in clogged burner system valve.
We recommend that you install a sediment trap/drip leg in
supply line as shown in Figure 52. Locate sediment trap/
drip leg where it is within reach for cleaning. Install in piping
system between fuel supply and burner system. Locate
sediment trap/drip leg where trapped matter is not likely
to freeze. A sediment trap collects moisture and contaminants and keeps them from going into the burner system
gas controls. If sediment trap/drip leg is not installed or is
installed wrong, burner system may not run properly.

of removal.
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
BURNER, PILOT AND CONTROL
COMPARTMENT
Keep the control compartment, logs, and burner areas
surrounding the logs clean by vacuuming or brushing at
least twice a year. Make sure the burner porting, pilot air
opening and burner air opening are free of obstructions
at all times.
BURNER
Inspect area around the injector. Remove any lint or foreign
material with a brush or vacuum.
VENT SYSTEM
The fireplace and venting system should be inspected
before initial use and at least annually by a qualified field
service person. Inspect the external vent cap on a regular
basis to make sure that no debris is interfering with the
airflow. Inspect entire venting system to ensure proper
function.
• Handle glass door with care to avoid striking or scratching it on hard objects.
To clean glass door, follow “Glass Removal” procedure
outlined in the Final Installation section. Film deposit on the
inside of the glass should be cleaned off using a nontoxic,
non-corrosive, non-abrasive, mild-cleaning solution. Simply
apply an adequate amount to the glass and wipe off with
a damp cloth. After all maintenance has been completed,
re-install glass door.
LOGS
Leave logs installed in the fireplace for cleaning. Vacuum
surface of the logs with a brush attachment. If logs must
be removed for cleaning, handle carefully by holding gently
at each end. Gloves are recommended to prevent skin irritation from ceramic fibers. If skin becomes irritated, wash
gently with soap and water. Vacuum surface of logs with
brush attachment or brush logs with a soft bristle brush (i.e.
clean, dry paintbrush). To place logs back in the fireplace,
Refer to “Log Placement” section in this manual.
NOTE: Do not use fluids to clean ceramic fiber logs.
ROCK WOOL
Replace or add rock wool as required following installation instructions in the Final Installation section of this
manual.
