A. 120VAC Wall Outlet Installation
•
•
•
•
The heater is The heater is wired from factory with a
polarized plug.
For ease of electrical hook up, you may wish to install the
heater near an existing outlet. A 15 amp, 120 volt circuit is
required. A dedicated circuit is preferred but not essential
in all cases. A dedicated circuit will be required if, after
installation, the circuit trips or fuse blows on a regular
basis when the heater is operated. Additional appliances
on the same circuit may exceed the current rating of the
circuit breaker.
Before plugging heater into wall outlet, make sure all
control switches are in the “OFF” position. To access
the controls, lift up on the lower grille panel and rotate it
forward.
If the power cord is not being used, go to Step B below. If
the cord does not reach the outlet, a No. 16-AWG minimum
wire size extension cord rated for a minimum of 1875 watts
may be used.
Disconnect remote controls during your extended absence.
This will prevent accidental operation of the heater.

•
•
•
Power supply service must be either completed or placed
within the heater prior to finishing to avoid reconstruction.
Wall switch wires (hardwired heaters only) must also
be completed to avoid reconstruction. See Section
“4. Wiring”.
Combustible material may cover the black outer surface
by 1/2 in. on the 120V heaters only. See Figure 6.2.
Combustible material may not cover the black outer
surface on 240V heaters. See Figure 6.3
Grilles and air openings cannot be covered in any
circumstances.
Noncombustible material may cover all black outer
surfaces. Grilles and air openings may not be covered.
Protective cover may stay on during framing, but must
be removed before final finishing. Once final finishing
has been completed, the protective cover can be used to
protect heater until final installation is complete.

B. Hand Held Remote Control Transmitter
RCE-QUAD-B (Optional)
•
•
•
•
The RCE-QUAD-B is an optional accessory listed with the
Crestfire Series heaters.
The transmitter is a radio frequency remote control. The
frequency can be found on the back side of the transmitter.
The range of the transmitter is approximately 20 ft (6.1 m)
from heater.
When the remote LED light is RED, the heater has been
turned on or off by the remote transmitter. The manual
controls located on the dashboard will override any other
external controls (remote control/wall switch) used to
operate the heater.
Hand Held Remote Transmitter/Heater Initialization
- The transmitter operates on a 12V battery (included)
made specifically for remote controls and electronic
lighters. Install the 12V battery supplied with the heater
into the battery compartment of the hand held remote
transmitter. It is recommended that alkaline batteries
always be used for longer battery life and maximum
operational performance. If the signal light does not
illuminate (when it normally would), check the position
of the transmitter’s battery.
- Initialization only has to be done once.
- Turn the main power switch on.
- Locate the LEARN button on the dashboard. The
LEARN button is located behind the lower grille/panel.
To push the button, use a blunt object (such as a
pencil).
- Push the button in and release. The heater will
beep.
- Push and hold either the ON or OFF button on the hand
held remote transmitter. A beep will indicate heater and
remote have been initialized.

CAUTION
Odors and vapors released during initial
operation.
• Curing of high temperature paint.
• Open windows for air circulation.
Odors may be irritating to sensitive individuals.
WARNING
Fire Risk
All electric heaters have hot and arcing or
sparking parts inside.
• Keep combustible materials, gasoline
and other flammable vapors and liquids
clear of heater.
• Do NOT store flammable materials close
to heater.
• Keep all such liquids well away from the
heater while it is in use.
Combustible materials may ignite.
Quadra-Fire • Village Collection Electric Fireplace • 4030-240 Rev J • 04/05

Remote Transmitter Function
- The hand held remote transmitter is only an ON/OFF
control. When the transmitter is active, the remote
LED light will be RED. Upon initial use, there may be
a delay of three seconds before the remote receiver will
respond to the transmitter. This is part of the system’s
design.
- With the main power switch (located on the heater
system) in the “ON” position, press the ON button on
the hand held remote transmitter to turn on the heater.
The transmitter does not control/change the other
switches or controls located on the heater. Features
of the heater (flame motion and heater system) will
remain in their last set position. If you would like to
change the setting you will have to access the manual
controls (located on the heater) to set the desired
position.
- To turn off the heater, press the OFF button on the
hand held remote transmitter.
C. Wall Switch Control
(hardwired heaters only) (WSK-21 & WSK-21-W)
•
•
•
•
The wall switch wiring can be found in the
Section “4. Wiring”.
The wall switch has an operating voltage of 12VDC, do
not hook up to 120/240VAC. For installations you can
use 24AWG thermostat wire connected to a standard wall
switch. It is recommended not to exceed 15 ft of wire from
heater.
With the main power switch (located on the dashboard)
in the “ON” position, the wall switch can turn the heater
on and off. The wall switch does not control the other
switches or controls located on the dashboard. Features of
the heater (flame motion and heater/blower assembly) will
remain in their last set position. If you would like to change
the setting, you will have to access the manual controls
(located on the heater) to set the desired position.
The heater must be turned on and off by the wall switch.

Maintenance and Service
A. Cleaning the Firebox and Control Compartment
Keep the firebox, control compartment and heater system
clean. Clean by brushing and vacuuming at least once a
year. To access the control compartment, follow the instructions for replacing the light bulbs. Follow the heater system
maintenance instructions to access the heater system. Failure to do this may shorten the fan’s life. Always disconnect
power before performing any cleaning or maintenance.
B. Cleaning the Back Acrylic Panel
The acrylic panel is cleaned in the factory during the assembly process. During shipment, installation, handling, etc.,
the acrylic panel surface may collect dust particles. These
can be removed by buffing lightly with a clean dry cloth.
To remove fingerprints or other marks, the acrylic panel can
be cleaned with a damp cloth using a mild soap and water
solution. DO NOT USE GLASS CLEANER! IT WILL RUIN
THE ACRYLIC PANEL! The acrylic panel should be completely dried with a lint free cloth or paper towel.
WARNING
Shock Risk
Burn Risk
Cleaning, performing maintenance or moving
this electric heater without disconnecting
power and allowing the heater to cool could
create a shock or burn hazard.
• Turn controls to “OFF”.
• Remove plug from outlet or turn off the
circuit breaker to the heater.
WARNING
Burn Risk
Accidental burning of the skin could occur.
• Allow at least 15 minutes for the light
bulbs to cool before touching them.
In the event of acrylic panel breakage, vacuum all remaining pieces with a shop vac. DO NOT VACUUM IF PIECES
ARE HOT! Replace acrylic panel with a panel ordered direct
or through your local distributor only. Never use substitute
material.
C. Replacing the Light Bulbs
The light bulbs will need to be replaced when the flame and/
or ember bed is dark on one side. Replace the bulbs with
75 watt halogen bulbs with mini-candelabra base. Do not
exceed 75 watts per bulb. Light bulbs can be purchased at
local hardware, lighting stores, online or by phone. Sylvania
model 75Q/CL/MC/RP or Satco model S3157 are recommended.
