An acid wash (muriatic acid) is commonly used to remove excess
mortar, primarily on brick faces. Prior to installation of the fascia,
determine if the masonry surrounding your fireplace that has been
treated with an acid wash has been properly neutralized with an ammonia solution. If not, the gold or nickel fascia may develop a permanent tarnish when the acid evaporates over time. Contact your masonry builder if uncertain if your facing has been properly neutralized.

GENERAL VENTING INSTRUCTIONS
PLEASE NOTE: In order to comply with applicable codes and product warranties, only Simpson
Dura-Vent venting components may be used.
DO NOT USE FIELD-FABRICATED VENTING COMPONENTS.
The Quadra-Fire Remington Fireplace QFP40 is approved to be vented either horizontally, through
the side wall, or vertically, through the roof. You may vent through a Class A or masonry chimney
if a Simpson Dura-Vent adapter is used (for USA installations only). Only Simpson Dura-Vent
components labeled and listed on page 27 may be used.
This fireplace is a direct vent heater. All combustion air must come directly from the outside of the
building. The vent pipe for this unit consists of an inner and an outer pipe. The inner pipe carries
the stove exhaust out of the system, and the outer pipe brings fresh combustion air into the stove.
VENTING
A wall thimble is optional when the venting passes through a wall. A support box or firestop is
required when the venting passes through a ceiling. Roof flashing and a storm collar are required
when venting passes through the roof. Follow instructions provided with the vent for installation of
these items.
IMPORTANT
Read all these instructions carefully before starting the installation. Failure to follow instructions
may create a fire or other safety hazard, and will void the warranty. Be sure to follow these
installation instructions for venting and clearance to combustible requirements, which may vary
from one installation to another. Do not extend the venting system in excess of the distance
prescribed in these manufacturer’s installation instructions. This gas appliance must not
be connected to a chimney flue serving a separate solid-fuel burning appliance.
INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS
The Quadra-Fire Remington QFP40 Fireplace is an engineered product that has been designed
and tested. The warranty will be voided, and serious fire, health, or other safety hazards may
result from any of the following actions: Installation of any damaged venting component, unauthorized modification of the venting system, installation of any component part not approved by
Aladdin Hearth Products, or installation other than as instructed by these instructions. Consult
your local building codes before beginning this installation.
WARNING: Always maintain the required clearances (air space) to nearby combustibles to avoid
creating a fire hazard. Do not fill air space with insulation. Minimum clearance between vent pipes
and combustible surfaces is 2" (50mm). Be sure to check the vent termination clearance requirements from decks, windows, soffits, gas regulators, air supply inlets and public walkways, as
specified on page 31 of these installation instructions and local building codes.
The gas fireplace and vent system must be vented directly to the outside of the building,
and never be attached to a chimney serving a separate solid fuel or gas-burning appliance. This
direct vent gas fireplace must use its own separate vent system. Common vent systems are
prohibited.
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR THE INSTALLER
Wear gloves and safety glasses for protection when installing this stove. Exercise extreme caution when using ladders or on rooftops around power lines. Be aware of electrical wiring locations
in walls and ceilings.

VENTING INSTALLATION OPTIONS & GUIDELINES
There are four types of direct vent system installations approved for use with the REMINGTON
QFP40. It is very important to maintain a balance between the combustion air intake and the flue
gas exhaust venting system. The types of installation are:
Horizontal Termination (Figure 1)
Vertical Termination (Figure 2)
Into a Class A Metal Chimney (Figure 3)*
Into a Masonry Chimney (Figure 4)*
*USA installations only
VENTING
Note: Certain limitations as to vent and vertical termination configuration apply, and
must be strictly adhered to. Read this manual carefully.
When planning your installation, it will be necessary to select the proper length of vent pipe for
your particular requirements. The vent graph on page 32 will show the relationship between vertical
and horizontal side wall venting, and will help you to determine the various vent lengths permitted.
It is also important to note the wall thickness. Select the amount of vertical rise desired for “verticalto-horizontal” type installations. To determine the length of your pipe required for vertical
installations, measure the distance from the application flue outlet to the ceiling, the ceiling
thickness, the vertical rise in an attic or second story, and allow for sufficient vent height above the
roofline. For two-story applications, fire stops are required at each floor level. If an offset is
needed in the attic, additional pipe and elbows will be required.
When installing this appliance into an existing masonry chimney, it is important to carefully measure
the length of flex needed to reach from the appliance outlet to the termination cap. If the flex
length is too short, a flex coupler will be needed to attach an additional length of flex liner to make
up the difference. If the flex length is too long, the liner could sag below the appliance outlet,
which could result in a potential fire hazard.
A masonry chimney or a factory-built chimney must be the required height above the roof
and any other nearby obstructions. The chimney must be at least three feet higher than
the highest point where it passes through the roof and at least two feet higher than the
highest part of the roof or structure that is within ten feet of the chimney, measured
horizontally. See 2-10-3 diagram below. These are safety requirements and are not
meant to assure proper flue draft.

HOW TO USE VENT GRAPH
1. Measure the distance from the top of stove to the center of the 90° elbow. On the
graph below, draw a horizontal line from that measurement on the vertical axis across
until it intersects with the slanted line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical line to the bottom of the graph.
3. The point at which this line meets the bottom line of the graph is the maximum length
of the horizontal run.
VENTING
Example 1: If the vertical dimension from the top of the stove to the center of the 90°
elbow is 7' (2.13m), the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not
exceed 9' 9" (2.97m).
Example 2: If the vertical dimension from the top of the stove is 21’ (6.4m), the horizontal run to the outer wall flange must not exceed 7’ 3" (2.21m).
Note: The maximum horizontal vent run is 15' (4.57m) when the vertical vent rise is 10'
(3.05m).
The minimum horizontal vent run is 12" (305mm).
Minimum wall thickness is 4" (102mm). Maximum wall thickness is 20" (508mm).

HORIZONTAL INSTALLATION
NOTE:
Horizontal sections require a 1/4" (6mm) rise for every 12" (305mm) of horizontal
travel.
Exterior Vent Diameter = 6 5/8" (177mm); Inner Vent Diameter = 4" (101mm)
Horizontal sections require noncombustible support every 3' (914mm) , e.g. plumbing
tape.
Step 1. Determine the desired location of the fireplace. Check to ensure that wall studs
or roof rafters are not in the way when the venting system is attached. If this is
the case, you may want to adjust the location of the stove.
VENTING
Step 2. Simpson Dura-Vent pipe is designed with special twist-lock connections. To
connect the venting system to the stove flue outlet, a twist-lock adapter is built
into the stove at the factory. Remember to include wall thickness in minimum
clearances when figuring the measurements for your installation needs.
Note: Twist-lock procedure: Four indentations, located on the female ends of pipes and
fittings, are designed to slide straight onto the male ends of adjacent pipes and fittings by
orienting the four pipe indentations so they match and slide into the four entry slots on
the male ends, see Fig. 5 below. Push the pipe sections completely together, then twistlock one section clockwise approximately one-quarter turn, until the two sections are
fully locked. The female locking lugs will not be visible from the outside, on the pipe or
fittings. They may be located by examining the inside of the female ends.
FIG. 5
FEMALE LOCKING LUGS
MALE LOCKING LUGS
NOTE: Horizontal runs of vent must be supported every 3' (914mm). Wall straps are available
for this purpose.

250-4721 JUNE 2001
REMINGTON QFP40 Direct Vent FIREPLACE
Step 3. With the adapter, any vertical pipe required for your installation, and the 90°
elbow attached to the flue outlet, measure the distance from the base of the ZC
appliance to the center of the 90° elbow, adding 1/4" rise for every 1' of horizontal
venting, as referenced in Note 1, below. Measure this height at the correct wall
location for your installation, maintaining minimum clearance to combustibles,
and mark the wall for a 10" x 10" (254mm x 254mm) square hole. The center of
the square hole should line up with the centerline of the horizontal pipe, as
shown in Figure 6A. Cut and frame the hole in the exterior wall where the vent
will be terminated, Figure 6B. If the wall being penetrated is constructed of
noncombustible material, i.e. masonry block or concrete, a 7" (178mm) diameter
hole is acceptable.

NOTE:
(1)
Installation requires a minimum of 1' (305mm) horizontal run of vent with a ¼" (6mm)
rise run towards the termination. Each 1' (305mm) of horizontal venting must include a
1/4" rise. Never allow the vent to run downward. This could cause high temperatures
and may present the possibility of a fire.
(2)
The location of the horizontal vent termination on an exterior wall must meet all local and
national building codes, and must not be easily blocked or obstructed, see page 33.
(3)
For installations requiring a vertical rise on the exterior of the building, 14" (356mm) and
36" (914mm) tall snorkel terminations are available. Follow the same installation
procedures as used for standard horizontal terminations. If the snorkel termination must
be installed below grade (i.e. basement application), proper drainage must be provided
to prevent water from entering the snorkel termination. Do not backfill around snorkel
termination.

Step 4. Position the horizontal vent termination in the center of the 10" (254mm) square hole, run a
bead of non-hardening mastic around its outside edges, so as to make a seal between it and
the wall, attach termination cap to the exterior wall with the four wood screws provided. The
arrow on the vent cap should be pointing up (Figure 7) . Insure that proper clearances to
combustible materials are maintained.

Step 5. Slide the stove and vent assembly (see Fig. 9 below) towards the wall, carefully
inserting the vent pipe into the vent cap assembly. It is important that the vent
pipe extend into the vent cap sufficient distance so as to result in a minimum
pipe overlap of 1¼" (32mm). Secure the connection between the vent pipe and
the vent cap by attaching the two sheet metal strips extending from the vent cap
assembly into the outer wall of the vent pipe. Use the two sheet metal screws
provided to connect the strips to the pipe section. (Figure 9).
Note: The attachment from the vent pipe to the vent cap must be siliconed. Venting
terminals shall not be recessed into a wall or siding.

Step 1. Check the installation instructions for required 1" clearances (air space) to combustibles when passing through ceilings, walls, roofs, enclosures, attic rafters, or
other nearby combustible surfaces. See page 40, Fig. 16. Do not pack air
space with insulation. Check the instructions below for maximum vertical rise of
the venting system, and any maximum horizontal offset limitations. All offsets
must fall within the set parameters of the vent graph located on page 31.
NOTE: Maximum vertical rise allowable is 30' (900mm) (Figure 10).

Step 2. Set the gas stove in its desired location. Drop a plumb bob down from the ceiling
to the position of the stove flue exit, and mark the location where the vent will
penetrate the ceiling. Drill a small hole at this point. Next, drop a plumb bob from
the roof to the hole previously drilled in the ceiling, and mark the spot where the
vent will penetrate the roof. Determine if ceiling joists, roof rafters, or other framing will obstruct the venting system. You may wish to relocate the stove, or to
offset, as shown in Figure 11, to avoid cutting loadbearing members.

Step 4. Assemble the desired lengths of GS pipe and elbows necessary to reach from
the stove up through the round support box. Ensure that all pipe and elbow
connections are in their fully twist-locked position. Be sure to seal the outer pipe
with appropriate sealant (high temperature silicone).
Step 5. Cut a hole in the roof centered on the small drill hole placed in the roof in Step 2.
The hole should be of sufficient size to meet the minimum requirements for
clearance to combustibles, as specified. Continue to assemble lengths of pipe
and elbows necessary to reach from the ceiling support box up through the roof
line. Galvanized pipe and elbows may be utilized in the attic, as well as above
the roofline. The galvanized finish is desirable above the roofline, due to its higher
corrosion resistance.
NOTE:
(1)
If an offset is necessary in the attic to avoid obstructions, it is important to support the vent pipe every 3' (914mm) to avoid excessive stress on the elbows, and
possible separation. Wall straps are available for this purpose (page 38, Figure
11).
(2)
Whenever possible, use 45° elbows, instead of 90° elbows. The 45° elbow offers less restriction to the flow of flue gases and intake air.
Step 6. Slip the flashing over the pipe section(s) protruding through the roof. Secure the
base of the flashing to the roof with roofing nails. Insure the roofing material
overlaps the top edge of the flashing as shown in Figure 14. Verify that the
chimney is the required height above the roof. See “2-10-3 Vertical Termination
Rule” on page 28 of this manual

Step 7. Continue to assemble pipe sections until the height of the vent cap (H) (Figure
15) meets the minimum code requirements described in code requirements as
outlined in the current CAN/CGA-Bl49 Installation Codes (in Canada), the National Fuel Gas Code NFPA 54/ANSI Z223.1 (in USA), or local codes. Note that
for steep roof pitches, the vent height must be increased. In high wind conditions,
nearby trees adjoining rooflines, steep pitched roofs, and other similar factors
can result in poor draft, or down drafting. In these cases increasing the vent
height may solve this problem.
Step 8. Twist-lock the vent cap and seal.
NOTE:
(1)
For multi-story vertical installations, a ceiling firestop (SDV part #963) is required
at the second floor, and any subsequent floors (Figure 16). The opening should
be framed to 10" x 10" (254mm x 254mm) inside dimensions, in the same manner as shown in Figure 13.
(2)
Any occupied areas above the first floor, including closets and storage spaces,
which the vertical vent passed through must be enclosed. The enclosure may be
framed and sheetrocked with standard construction materials; however, refer to
these installation instructions for the minimum allowable clearance between the
outside of the vent pipe and the combustible surfaces of the enclosure. Do not fill
any of the required air space with insulation.

CATHEDRAL CEILING INSTALLATION
Follow installation Steps 1 and 2 under vertical termination section.
Using the plumb-bob, mark the centerline of the venting system on the ceiling,
and drill a small hole through the ceiling and roof at this point. From the roof,
locate the drill hole and mark the outline of the cathedral ceiling support box.
Remove shingles or other roof covering as necessary to cut the rectangular
hole for the support box. Cut the hole 1/8" (3mm) larger than the support box
outline.
Lower the support box through the hole in the roof until the bottom of the box
protrudes at least 2" (51mm) below the ceiling (Figure 17). Align the support box
both vertically and horizontally with a level. Temporarily tack the support box in
place through the inside walls and into the roof sheathing.
FIG. 17
VENTING
Step 5. Using tin snips, cut the support box from the top corners down to the roofline,
and fold the resulting flaps over the roof sheathing (Figure 18). Before nailing it
to the roof, run a bead of non-hardening mastic around the top edges of the
support box to make a seal between it and the roof. Clean out any combustible
material from inside the support box.

INSTALLATION INTO A CLASS A METAL CHIMNEY (USA ONLY)
Have the existing installation inspected by a qualified chimney sweep or professional installer prior to converting to direct vent. The existing chimney system
must be in serviceable condition and functionally sound and clean.
Remove existing chimney cap.
Measure the distance from the top of the chimney to the bottom of the ceiling
support box, add 3" (76mm) to this measurement, and cut a section of 4" (102mm)
flex pipe to that length (the flex should be extended to its nominal length).
Connect the end of the flex pipe section to the underside of the top adapter (SDV
#985K, 986K or 987K), using three sheet metal screws (Figure 19).
Pass the flex pipe down through the center of the chimney system, and center
the top adapter on the top of the chimney pipe. Drill four 1/8" (3.3mm) diameter
holes through the top adapter, and into the chimney top. Ensure that you are
drilling into the metal on the chimney. Twist lock the high wind termination cap
(SDV #991) onto the top adapter (Figures 20 and 21).
Pull the flex pipe down through the ceiling support box, until it protrudes approximately 3" (76mm). Connect the flex pipe to the retro connector (SDV #909B),

INSTALLATION INTO AN EXISTING MASONRY CHIMNEY (USA ONLY)
Step 1. Before cutting any holes, assemble the desired sections of direct vent pipe to
determine the center of the masonry penetration.
Step 3. Secure the flashing (SDV #705C) to the
top of the masonry chimney using a
bead of non-hardening sealant-adhesive. If the flashing is larger than the top
of the chimney, cut and fold flashing as
needed to fit chimney (Figure 23).
Step 4. To determine the length of flex needed,
measure from 3" (76mm) above the top
of the flashing down to the level of the
opening. Add the distance from the center of the chimney out through the wall.
Cut a piece of 4" (102mm) flex to this
length (extended to its nominal length).
Be sure to leave 2"-3" (51mm-76mm) of
flex above the existing chimney to allow
for connection to the termination kit.

250-4721 JUNE 2001
FIG. 22
VENTING
Step 2. Once the center point of the penetration has been determined, cut a 6"
(152mm) diameter hole in the masonry.
If the hole is too large, the retro connector might not mount properly; if the hole
is too small, the appliance might starve
for intake air. If there is a frame wall in
front of the masonry wall, cut and frame
a 10" (254mm) square opening in the
wall (centered around the 6" [152mm]
masonry opening). If there is sheet rock
only (no studs) in front of the masonry
the 10" (254mm) opening is still needed,
but does not need to be framed. This
allows the retro connector to mount directly on the masonry and provide the
correct clearances to combustibles (see
Figure 22).

VERTICAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (CONT.)
Step 5. Connect the flex liner to the top adapter
using three sheet metal screws (see Figure 19, page 42).
Step 6. Feed the flex liner through the flashing
into the chimney. Carefully feed the flex
liner down the chimney to the bottom and
out the opening in the masonry wall,
forming an angle to line up the flex liner
with the vent opening on the appliance.
WARNING: Do not let the flex liner
sag below the level at which it will
connect to the appliance or connector. This could allow hot gas to become trapped and potentially become
a fire hazard. The flex liner path
should always be sloped up toward
the termination cap.
FIG. 24
FIG. 25
Step 7. If additional lengths of flex liner are
needed to span the chimney height, use
a flex coupler to connect the pieces of
flex liner together. Connect the flex to
the coupler by using four sheet metal
screws for each side (Figure 24).
Step 8. Secure the top adapter to the flashing.
Use three sheet metal screws through
the side of the top adapter into the flange
on the flashing (Figure 25). Twist lock
the high wind termination cap (SDV
#991) on to the top adapter.

Step 9. Attach the flex to the retro connector.
Use three sheet metal screws to attach
the flex liner to the connector (Figure
26). Mount the retro connector to the masonry wall using masonry bolts. Redrill
larger holes on connector as needed.
Be careful to ensure that the connector
is centered in the opening and the
mounting holes line up with the masonry
wall.
Step 10.
Slide wall thimble cover (SDV
#940) over retro connector and secure
with masonry bolts (Figure 27). If you
have a framed wall in front of the masonry, use wood screws to mount wall
thimble cover to framed wall, over retro
connector and 10" (254mm) square
framed opening (Figure 22). If needed,
add a section of direct vent pipe to the
retro connector in order to extend
through the opening in the wall thimble
cover.
Step 11.
The connection between the appliance and the retro connector may be
completed with sections of direct vent
pipe.
WARNING: If any other appliances have been previously attached to
this masonary flue or an open fireplace, etc., all openings into flue
should be sealed properly. it is very important that there is only one
appliance on a vent system and that there are no air leaks into the
masonry chimney itself other than the vent appliance venting.

SHUTTER ADJUSTMENT
A 5/32 Allen wrench is supplied with unit to make adjustment to the two Allen bolts which
operate the shutter adjustment for rear (top) and front (lower) main burners. These are located
beneath the firebox, behind the control panel on your left at the base of the burner pans.
Light stove and allow to burn for 20 minutes to allow logs to cure. While logs are curing
you may notice a bright orange flame, this is normal. When this flame turns to yellow or disappears, the shutter adjustment can take place.
The shutter is pre-set to the open position at factory, so adjustment may not be necessary.
If flame height adjustment is required, turn the allen bolts counterclockwise to close shutters and
obtain a yellow flame. For a blue flame with more glow, turn the allen bolts clockwise to open the
shutters. Wait 5 minutes for flame to settle. If the flame is not satisfactory, repeat the procedure.
This setting should only require attention during initial set-up.
ADJUSTMENTS
DAMPER ADJUSTMENT
NOTE: Fireplace must be operating to make this adjustment. An adjustable damper is
built in to the unit to control the flow rate of exhaust gases. This ensures proper combustion for
your vent configuration and is also a factor in flame appearance.
The damper control is located above the heat exchanger. Use a flashlight to locate the
Phillips screwhead. Using a long Phillips screwdriver, loosen the screwhead. Above that screw
is an extension rod with a standard driver slot at the end near the front of the unit.
Use a standard screwdriver to make the adjustment while observing flame appearance,
turn counterclockwise until optimum operation occurs. This setting should only require attention
during initial set-up.
.
ADJUSTING FLAME HEIGHT
The flame of the fireplace is adjustable in order to tailor the look and heat output to your specific
needs. It is adjusted by turning the Comfort Control dial on the control panel, see page 58.
ADJUSTING THE BLOWER SPEED
The blower will turn on automatically within approximately 10 minutes after start-up and the
fireplace is up to temperature. This aids in transferring the heat into the living area. The blower
speed can be increased or decreased using the Fan Speed knob on the control panel, see page
54.
NORMAL OPERATING SOUNDS
Blower ......................... The fireplace uses a 160 cfm blower to circulate heated air into
the living area. It produces a whirring sound which increases in
volume as the speed is increased.
Pilot Flame .................. The pilot flame remains on constantly and makes a “whisper” sound.
Gas control valve ....... As the valve opens and shuts down it will click.
Burner pan .................. The burner pan is located beneath the logs. It distributes the gas
producing a clean, efficient and aesthetic burn. As the main burner
gets up to temperature a creaking sound will be heard. This is the
expansion of the metal. The sound will cease once the fireplace is
up to temperature but may return upon cool down.
Blower snap disc ........ This part may produce a clicking sound as the blower turns on and
off.
Heat Exchanger .......... A normal expansion and contraction sound may be heard.

or deteriorated, replace it when reinstalling. Check the logs for sooting. A small amount of
soot along the bottom of the logs is normal. If excessive sooting is found, the fireplace will
require adjustment. Contact your dealer.
4. Clean the burner pan (especially in the burner holes and slots) and inspect the following:
a. Check for burner pan holes that are cracked, severely warped, or corroded.
b. Make sure the burner pan assembly fits flat against the floor of the firebox.
c. Check the firebox and area around the pilot to make sure there is no warping or damage. If
any problem is found, discontinue use and contact your dealer for service.
5. Reinstall the log set. Reinstall the glass (if the glass is damaged, contact your dealer for a
replacement) Make sure the gasket along the perimeter of the glass contacts the face of
the firebox and forms an airtight seal. If it does not, realign or replace the gasket to insure
an airtight seal. Reinstall the fascia.
6. Inspect the area behind the access door. Check the gas control valve and all of the gas
lines. If any damage is found, discontinue use and contact your dealer for service.
7. Start the pilot and turn on the main burner. The flames should be orange/yellow and not
touch the top of the firebox. If the pilot or main burners do not burn correctly, contact your

Prepare a flat area to lay the door on by covering the surface with cardboard,
disposable tarp or paper large enough to contain the entire door.
Wear leather gloves, long sleeves and safety glasses to protect against injury
from any broken glass.
Ensure that unit has completely cooled. Remove fascia, then door.
Lay door on prepared surface with the front facing down.
Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the 16 screws holding the four retaining
strips in place and set aside.
Carefully remove the retaining strips and set aside.
Carefully remove broken/defective glass and dispose of pieces. Dust any particles of glass off the door frame and dispose of the covering it was laid on. Any
particles of broken glass could scratch the replacement piece if contact is made
during the replacement. Scratches in the glass may cause breakage.
Place a clean covering on your work surface.
Position the door frame face down upon the clean surface and place the new
glass on the frame with the thin side of gasketing down, facing the front.
Reinstall the retainer strips using the screws removed earlier. Take care not to
over tighten the screws.
Replace the glass with the narrow edging of frame on the top, but do not latch
until Lighting Instructions (page 55) have been completed.
Replace fascia.

Fireplace Design:
Many of the components within this fireplace are designed specifically for safety
purposes. It is therefore imperative that only certified gas service technicians should
service this fireplace.
Main Burner Operation:
A millivolt system controls the operation of this fireplace. The thermopile and
thermocouple generate electricity when heated by the pilot flame. This electricity is used
to operate the gas valve. Without enough electricity, the gas valve will not turn on. That
is why when starting the pilot the gas control knob has to be pressed in long enough for
the thermocouple to heat up and generate enough electricity. The thermopile provides
power for the ON/OFF switch, remote control, or thermostat. Because the thermopile
generates the electricity needed to turn the fireplace on and off, this fireplace can be
operated when the power is out (although the blower will not run).
TROUBLSHOOTING
Flames Are Too Short (Under 6”)
✔
Is the flame height may be turned too low? (Turn the flame height to “HI”; see
Adjusting the Flame Height, Pg. 56).
✔
Primary air adjustment - Contact Dealer.
✔
Damper adjusted properly? - Contact Dealer.
Gas Buildup Prevention Feature:
This appliance’s utilization of a high-technology gas valve in conjunction with a
pilot flame ensures that no gas builds up inside the firebox.
The thermocouple (next to the pilot) senses when the pilot flame is lit. If the pilot
flames goes out, this thermocouple no longer generates electricity, causing the gas valve
to automatically shut off all gas to the heater, preventing the pilot from spilling gas into
the firebox.
