Electrical Connection
A 15 amp, 120 Volt, 60 Hz circuit with a properly
grounded outlet is required. Preferably, the fireplace
will be on a dedicated circuit as other appliances on the
same circuit may cause the circuit breaker to trip or the
fuse to blow when the heater is in operation. The unit
comes standard with a 6 ft. (1.8 m) long three wire cord,
exiting the left side of the fireplace. Plan the installation to avoid the use of an extension cord. Extension
cords are for temporary use only. If an extension cord
must be used, it must be UL/CSA certified, rated at 15A
(1875W), 125V maximum with 14 AWG minimum and
constructed of two current carrying conductors with
ground. A heavy duty extension cord with the shortest
length possible for the connection is recommended and
must not be longer than 50 ft. (15.2 m). Do not coil or
cover the extension cord.

place until it has first been inspected if any portion
of it has been exposed to water. Always utilize a
qualified service technician to inspect the fireplace
and to replace any electrical system components
that may have been damaged by water.
Grounding Instructions
This heater is for use on 120 volts. The cord has a plug
as shown at A in Figure 1. An adapter as shown at C
is available for connecting three-blade grounding-type
plugs to two-slot receptacles. The green grounding lug
extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box.
The adapter should not be used if a three-slot grounded
receptacle is available.

WARNING
Always confirm that the electrical outlet wiring is
in compliance with all applicable local and national
building codes and electrical code requirements to
avoid the risk of fire or electric shock.
If the fireplace should be exposed to water, immediately turn off the main power supply and remove
the power plug from the outlet. Never use the fire4

Direct (Hard) Wiring Electric Fireplace
WARNING
• This procedure must be conducted by a qualified electrician, in accordance with National and local codes. In
the U.S.A., the installation must conform to the National
Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70. In Canada, the
installation must conform to the current CSA C22.1
Canadian Electrical Code.
• Make sure the power to the unit is off, and the power
cord is unplugged from the wall outlet before proceeding with this conversion. Failure to do so may result in
property damage, personal injury or loss of life.
• Make sure the power to the power cable has been
turned off at the breaker/fuse panel before proceeding.
NOTE: When direct wiring this appliance, it must be
connected to a 15 Amp dedicated circuit breaker or
fuse in the electrical panel of the dwelling. The cable
between the circuit/fuse panel and the fireplace must
meet all local and national codes, and in no case shall
the wires be less than 14 gauge.
1. Make sure the power to the unit has been turned
off, the master ON/OFF switch located under the
appliance on the left hand side is turned off, the
power cord is unplugged from the wall outlet and
the appliance has cooled down.
2. Follow Steps 1 through 4 in “Light Bulb
Replacement” section, Page 9.
3. Remove two (2) screws per side for the brackets
and the fireplace screen to be removed and set
aside.
4. Remove one (1) screw per side of the bulb housing
assembly to remove and set aside.
5. Remove two (2) screws per side for the left side
cover. This allows the cover to be opened for
access to where the power cord enters the strain
relief and the compartment.
6. Using wire cutters, gently cut the power cord inside
the compartment, flush to the strain relief. Also,
repeat for the power cord outside the compartment.
7. Back inside the compartment, gently separate the
three (3) wires of the power cord into separate wires
10009472
by gently pulling them apart. DO NOT use a knife,
as this may expose bare conductors. The hot wire
is connected to the main power switch and is terminated with a straight terminal connector. The neutral
wire is connected at the circuit board’s screw clamp
terminal block. The green ground wire is attached
to the ground stud. Use a 5/16” (8 mm) socket or
wrench to remove the brass nut, brass lock washer
and brass cup washer and set aside. Remove and
discard the cut power cord ground wire.
8. Using a slotted screwdriver, remove the 7/8” (22
mm) diameter knockout above the old power cord
strain relief.
9. Route the power cable from the breaker/fuse panel
through the 7/8” (22 mm) diameter hole. Secure the
cable to the compartment using an approved clamp.
The wires should extend approximately 6” (152 mm)
into the compartment.
10. Connect the ground wire from the power cable by
wrapping it around the ground stud of the unit and
securing it firmly with the brass cup washer, brass
lock washer and brass nut.
11. Using wire strippers, strip approximately 5/8” (15
mm) from the ends of the hot and neutral wires.
Using an approved wire nut, connect the hot lead
(black) of the power cable to the power cord wire
that ends at the main power switch. Similarly, using
another wire nut, connect the neutral wire (white),
of the power cable to the power cord ending at the
screw clamp terminal block of the circuit board. It
is recommended that the wire nuts be taped to the
wires, using electrical tape, as an extra safety measure.
12. For extra safety measure, visually check and fix the
wire routing appropriately. Refer to the wiring diagram on the unit or in the instruction manual if any
wires have been dislodged.
13. Turn the power to the unit on at the breaker/fuse
panel. Place the appliance into operation and check
to make sure all of the systems are working properly

2, Insert panels
Carton 2 contents
1, Trim assembly w/ six (6) magnets
Appliance Mounting
The heater must be mounted to a suitable wall using
the mounting hanger provided. Consider the minimum
clearance dimensions referenced on Page 3 and 4 for
the mounting location. The following steps are for one
method that can be used at your own risk. A helper is
recommended.
1. Become familiar with the mounting hanger and how
it fits to the rear of the electric heater main body.
(Fig. 2)
Mounting Hanger
4. Measure half the width [16³⁄₈” (416 mm)] of the
heater main body and mark a vertical line to cross
the horizontal line. If the heater main body is to be
centered on the wall area, mark a vertical center line
to cross that horizontal line. Where the horizontal
and vertical marks cross is the location of the upper
center mounting hanger hole.
5. Use an appropriate level and mark and measure the
locations for the remaining holes of the mounting
hanger. Use the mounting hanger as a template.
6. Use the long screws provided to mount the hanger
in place. A #3 Phillips screwdriver is recommended.
Depending on the wall type, proper anchors have to
be used. For your convenience, expansion anchors
are provided. Be sure to check the anchors for suitability for the wall type.
7. Mount the heater main body to the hanger.
Heater Assembly
Before assembling the trim to the heater main body,
arrange the pebbles onto the plastic front form (ember
lava rock), to give the best decorative effect. Refer to
front cover for example. If necessary, the side brackets
for the plastic front form may need to be removed to fit
and reinstall.
Trim Assembly
Place the trim insert panels on either side of the trim
and secure to the trim using the screws provided. (Two
(2) screws on either side)
1. Remove the protective plastic bag and place the trim
on it to prevent any damage to the front while working.
2. Peel off the protective plastic coating (if available) on
the insert panel.
3. Place the insert panel on either side as shown in
Figure 3. Secure each panel using two (2) short
screws. The screws fit into slots in the trim. A medium #2 Phillips screwdriver is recommended.
4. Double the six (6) magnets and place on the trim in
three locations as shown in Figure 4.
Wiring Diagram
FP1731
Fig. 2 Rear view of Inspire with mounting hanger in place.
2. Locate the heater main body on the wall and mark
(erasable) either the bottom or top edge and one
side for the heater
location. If the heater is to be
������
centered on the wall area, the side mark is not necessary. Set the�����������������
heater main body down.
�����
3. Mark a horizontal line 21¹⁄₈” (536 mm) from the lower
line or 2¹⁄₄” (58 mm) from the upper line.
