commonwealth of Massachusetts.
In absence of local codes, install to the current CAN/CGA B149 Installation Code in Canada or to the National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1, and NFPA 54 in the United States.
Suitable for mobile home installation if installed in accordance with the current standard CAN/CSA Z240MH Series,
for gas equipped mobile homes, in Canada or ANSI Z223.1
and NFPA 54 in the United States.
The fireplace and its individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure
testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig
(3.5 kPa). The fireplace must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing its individual manual shutoff valve
during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at
test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psig (3.5 kPa).
When the fireplace is installed directly on carpeting, vinyl tile or
other combustible material other than wood flooring, the fireplace shall be installed on a metal or wood panel extending
the full width and depth.
The optional heat circulating blower is supplied with a cord. If
installed, the junction box must be electrically connected and
grounded in accordance with local codes. In the absence of
local codes, use the current CSA C22.1 CANADIAN ELECTRICAL CODE in Canada or the ANSI/NFPA 70 NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CODE in the United States.
Purge all gas lines with the glass door of the fireplace open.
Assure that a continuous gas flow is at the burner before
closing the door.
Under extreme vent configurations, allow several minutes
(5-15) for the flame to stabilize after ignition.
Eight (8") inches is the minimum bend radius allowed for
the 7" diameter flexible air liner.
W415-0570 / B / 11.30.07
Provide adequate ventilation and combustion air. Provide
adequate accessibility clearance for servicing and operating the fireplace. Never obstruct the front opening of the

GENERAL INFORMATION
FOR YOUR SATISFACTION, THIS FIREPLACE HAS BEEN TESTFIRED TO ASSURE ITS OPERATION AND QUALITY! Maximum
input is 35,000 BTU/hr for natural gas and 33,000 BTU/hr for propane.
When the fireplace is installed at elevations above 4,500ft, and in the
absense of specific recommendations from the local authority having
jurisdiction, the certified high altitude input rating shall be reduced at
the rate of 4% for each additional 1,000ft. Maximum output for natural
gas is 28,350 BTU/hr at an efficiency of 81%; and 26,400 BTU/hr for
propane at an efficiency of 80%. Minimum A.F.U.E. rating is 64% for
natural gas and 65% for propane. Minimum inlet gas supply pressure
is 4.5 inches water column for natural gas and 11 inches water
column for propane. Maximum inlet gas pressure is 7 inches water
column for natural gas and 13 inches water column for propane.
Manifold pressure under flow conditions is 3.5 inches water column
for natural gas and 10 inches water column for propane.

No external electricity (110 volts or 24 volts) is
required for the gas system operation.
Expansion / contraction noises during heating up and
cooling down cycles are normal and are to be expected.
Change in flame appearance from "HI" to "LO" is more
evident in natural gas than in propane.
CARE OF GLASS, AND PLATED PARTS
Do not use abrasive cleaners to clean plated parts. Buff
lightly with a clean dry cloth. The glass is 3/16" ceramic
glass available from your Continental / Wolf Steel Ltd.
dealer. DO NOT SUBSTITUTE MATERIALS. Clean the
glass after the first 10 hours of operation with a recommended gas fireplace glass cleaner. Thereafter clean as
required. DO NOT CLEAN GLASS WHEN HOT! If the
glass is not kept clean permanent discolouration and / or
blemishes may result.
VENTING
VENTING LENGTHS & AIR TERMINAL LOCATIONS
Use only Wolf Steel, Simpson Dura-Vent, Selkirk Direct
Temp or American Metal Amerivent venting components.
Minimum and maximum vent lengths, for both horizontal
and vertical installations, and air terminal locations for either system are set out in this manual and must be adhered to. For Simpson Dura-Vent, Selkirk Direct Temp and
American Metal Amerivent, follow the installation procedure
provided with the venting components.
All outer pipe joints of these venting systems must be
sealed using Red RTV Hight Temperature Sealant.
Wolf Steel, Simpson Dura-Vent, Selkirk Direct Temp and
American Metal Amerivent venting systems must not be
combined.
For the following vent systems a starter adaptor must be
used and may be purchased from the corresponding
supplier:

For vent systems that provide seals on the inner exhaust flue,
only the outer air intake joints must be sealed using a red high
temperature silicone (RTV). This same sealant maybe used on
both the inner exhaust and outer intake vent pipe joints of all other
approved vent systems except for the exhaust vent pipe
connection to the fireplace flue collar which must be sealed using
the black high temperature sealant Mill Pac. High temperature
sealant must be ordered separately.
When using Continental® venting components, use only approved
Wolf Steel Ltd. rigid / flexible vent components with the following
termination kits: WALL TERMINAL KIT GD222, or 1/12 TO 7/12
PITCH ROOF TERMINAL KIT GD110, 8/12 TO 12/12 ROOF TERMINAL
KIT GD111, FLAT ROOF TERMINAL KIT GD112 or PERISCOPE KIT
GD201 (for wall penetration below grade). With flexible venting,
in conjunction with the various terminations, use either the 5 foot
vent kit GD220 or the 10 foot vent kit GD330. These vent kits allow
for either horizontal or vertical venting of the fireplace. FIGURES
2 and 3.
The maximum allowable vertical vent length is 40 feet. The
maximum number of allowable 4" vent connections is three
horizontally or vertically (excluding the fireplace and the air
terminal connections) when using aluminum flexible venting.
For optimum flame appearance and fireplace performance, keep
the vent length and number of elbows to a minimum. The air terminal
must remain unobstructed at all times. Examine the air terminal at
least once a year to verify that it is unobstructed and undamaged.
When venting, the horizontal run must be kept to a minimum of 12 inches or a maximum of 20 feet. If a 20 foot
horizontal run is required, the fireplace must have a
minimum vertical rise immediately off the fireplace of
57 inches. When terminating vertically, the vertical rise
is a minimum 34 inches and a maximum 40 feet above
the fireplace. FIGURE 3.
Horizontal runs may have a 0 inch rise per foot in all
cases using SIMPSON DURA-VENT or NAPOLEON
RIGID OR FLEXIBLE venting components when venting as illustrated in Figures 2 and 4.
For optimum performance, it is recommended
that all horizontal runs have a minimum 1 inch
rise per foot.
Different types of venting systems must not be
combined. Only one type of vent system must
be used for the entire installation.
Provide a means for visually checking the vent
connection to the fireplace after the fireplace
is installed.
Do not allow the inside liner to bunch up on horizontal or vertical runs and elbows. Keep it pulled
tight. A 1¼" air gap between the inner and outer
liner all around is required for safe operation.
Vent lengths that pass through unheated
spaces (attics, garages, crawl space) should
be wrapped with a protective insulation sleeve
to minimize condensation.
Use a firestop when penetrating interior walls,
floor or ceiling. Elbows require 3" spacers, one
at the start, one at the middle and one at the
end to ensure the 1 1/4" air gap is maintained.
In order to avoid the possibility of exposed insulation or vapour barrier coming in contact with
the fireplace body, it is recommended that the
walls of the fireplace enclosure be 'finished',
(i.e. drywall/sheetrock) as would any other
outside wall of the home. This will ensure that
clearance to combustibles is maintained within
the cavity.
For safe and proper operation of the fireplace
follow the venting instructions exactly.

SPECIAL VENT INSTALLATION
PERISCOPE TERMINATION
Use the GD201 periscope kit to locate the air termination

when final grading is completed, the bottom air slot is
located a minimum of 12 inches above the grade. The
maximum allowable vent length depends on the model
of fireplace, as illustrated.

INSTALLATION
WALL AND CEILING PROTECTION
For optimum performance it is recommended that all
horizontal runs have a minimum 1 inch rise per foot using
flexible venting.
For safe and proper operation of the fireplace, follow the
venting instructions exactly.
HORIZONTAL TERMINATION: A clearance to combustibles of 2" must be maintained during the first 24" of
venting when penetrating combustible walls. The
firestop spacer (W500-0292) supplied with the unit
should be used to maintain this clearance. The first two
feet of outer 7" diameter vent pipe, from the appliance
must be wrapped in the 1 inch thick insulation sleeve
(supplied) with the exception where the firestop spacer
is closer than 2ft. There must be a 1" air gap in addition
to the insulation sleeve.
* The 11½ inch framing dimension may be reduced to a
9½ inch opening if the vent length, from the fireplace to
the framed hole, is 24 inches or greater. If not, it is recommended to use a terminal extension plate, W500-0103,
when mounting the air terminal.

USING FLEXIBLE VENT COMPONENTS
Do not allow the inside liner to bunch up on
horizontal or vertical runs and elbows. Keep
it pulled tight. A 1 1/4" air gap between
the liner and outer liner all
around is required for
safe operation. A spacer ELBOW
is required at the start,
middle and end of each
SPACER
elbow to ensure this gap
is maintained. See
Figure 19.
FIGURE 19
4. From outside, apply a bead of the high temperature sealant to
the inside of both liners, approximately 1" from the end of each
liner.
5. Holding the air terminal, insert into both liners with a twisting
motion to ensure that both the terminal sleeves engage into the
liners / sealant. Secure the terminal to the exterior wall and make
weather tight by sealing with caulking (not supplied).
6. If more liner needs to be used to reach the fireplace, couple
them together as illustrated in FIGURE 14. The vent system must
be supported approximately every 3 feet for both vertical and
horizontal runs. Use Continental® support ring assembly W0100370 or equivalent noncombustible strapping to maintain the minimum 1" clearance to combustibles.
VERTICAL AIR TERMINAL INSTALLATION
Use only approved aluminum flexible liner kits marked "
Wolf Steel Approved Venting" as identified by the stamp
only on the 7" outer liner.
For optimum performance it is recommended that all horizontal runs have a minimum ¼ inch rise per foot using
flexible venting.
For safe and proper operation of the fireplace, follow the
venting instructions exactly.
All inner exhaust and outer intake vent pipe joists may be
sealed using either Red RTV high temp silicone sealant or
Black high temp Mill Pac with the exception of the fireplace
exhaust flue collar which must be sealed using Mill Pac
(not supplied).
HORIZONTAL AIR TERMINAL INSTALLATION
1. Stretch the 4" diameter aluminum flexible liner to the required
length taking into account the additional length needed for the
finished wall surface. Apply a heavy bead of the high temperature
sealant Mill Pac, to the inside of the 4" liner approximately 1" from
the end. Slip the liner a minimum of 2" over the fireplace vent collar
and secure with 3 #8 screws.
2. Using the 7" diameter flexible aluminum liner, apply sealant, slide
a minimum of 2" over the fireplace combustion air collar and secure
with 3 #8 screws.
3. Insert the liners through the firestop. Position and secure the
fireplace using the nailing tabs (2 per side) and/or secure to the
floor using screws inserted through the two ¼" diameter holes in
the front left and right corners of the base. The liners should be
flush with the exterior wall.
The air terminal may be recessed into the exterior wall or
siding by ½", the depth of the
return flange.

Spacers are attached to the 4" inner flex liner at predetermined intervals to maintain a 1-1/4" air gap to the 7"
outer liner. These spacers must not be removed. Elbows
require 3 spacers, one at the start, one at the middle and
one at the end to ensure the 1 1/4" air gap is maintained.
7. If more of the elbow liner needs to be used to reach the
fireplace, couple them together as illustrated in FIGURE 17.
The vent system must be supported approximately every
3 feet for both vertical and horizontal runs. Use Wolf Steel
support ring assembly W010-0370 or equivalent noncombustible strapping to maintain a clearance to combustibles
of 1".

USING RIGID VENT COMPONENTS
For optimum performance it is recommended that all
horizontal runs have a ¼ inch rise per foot.
For safe and proper operation of the fireplace, follow
the venting instructions exactly.
The vent system must be supported approximately every 3
feet for both vertical and horizontal runs. Use Continental®
vent spacers W615-0033 every 3 feet and on either side of
each elbow to maintain the minimum 1¼" clearance between the outer and inner vent pipes. Use Continental®
support ring assembly W010-0370 or equivalent noncombustible strapping to maintain the minimum 1" clearance
to combustibles for both vertical and horizontal runs.
All inner exhaust and outer intake vent pipe joists must
be sealed using either Red RTV high temp silicone sealant or Black high temp Mill Pac with the exception of the
fireplace exhaust flue collar which must be sealed using Mill Pac only (not supplied).
HORIZONTAL AIR TERMINAL INSTALLATION
1. Move the fireplace into position. Measure the vent length
required between terminal and fireplace taking into account
the additional length needed for the finished wall surface
and any 1¼" overlaps between venting components.
2. Apply high temperature sealant Mill Pac to the outer edge
of the 4" inner collar of the fireplace. Attach the first vent
component and secure using 3 self tapping screws. Repeat using 7" piping.
3. Holding the air terminal, insert into both vent pipes with a
twisting motion to ensure that both the terminal sleeves
engage into the vent pipes and the sealant. Secure the
terminal to the exterior wall and make weather tight by sealing with caulking (not supplied). The air terminal may be
recessed into the exterior wall or siding by ½", the depth
of the return flange.

5. Thread the air terminal pipe assembly down through the
roof support and attach, ensuring that a minimum 16" of
air terminal will penetrate the roof when fastened.
FIGURE 24. If the attic space is tight, we recommend
threading the Wolf Steel vent pipe collar or equivalent
loosely onto the air terminal assembly as it is passed
through the attic. The air terminal must be located vertically and plumb.
6. Remove nails from the shingles, above and to the sides
of the chimney. Place the flashing over the air terminal and
slide it underneath the sides and upper edge of the
shingles. Ensure that the air terminal is properly centered
within the flashing, giving a 3/4" margin all around. Fasten
to the roof. Do NOT nail through the lower portion of the
flashing. Make weather-tight by sealing with caulking. Where
possible, cover the sides and top edges of the flashing
with roofing material.
7. Apply a heavy bead of waterproof caulking 2 inches above
the flashing. Slide the storm collar around the air terminal
and down to the caulking. Tighten to ensure that a weathertight seal between the air terminal and the collar is achieved.
Attach the other storm collar centered between the air intake and air exhaust slots onto the air terminal. Tighten
securely. Attach the rain cap.
8. Continue adding rigid venting sections, sealing and securing as above. Attach a 4" collapsed telescopic pipe to
the last section of rigid piping. Secure with screws and
seal. Repeat using a 7" telescopic pipe.

RESTRICTING VERTICAL VENTS
This appliance is certified to be installed as an OEM
(Original Equipment Manufacturer) installation in a
manufactured home or mobile home and must be
installed in accordance with the manufacturer's
instructions and the Manufactured Home Construction
and Safety Standard, Title 24 CFR, Part 3280, in the
United States or the Mobile Home Standard, CAN/CSA
Z240 MH Series, in Canada. This appliance is only for
use with the type(s) of gas indicated on the rating plate.
A conversion kit is supplied with the mobile home
appliance.
Vertical terminations may display a very active flame. If this
appearance is not desirable, the vent exit must be restricted
using restrictor supplied. This reduces the velocity of the
exhaust gases, slowing down the flame pattern and creating a more traditional appearance.
HOLE "A"
1. Remove all obstructing obstacles i.e.: brick panels, logs, etc.
2. Remove the baffle plate from the
rear wall of the firebox, exposing
the two screws from the flue pipe
assembly.
3. Line up the "A" holes on the restrictor plate with the pipe
assembly holes and replace the screws.
4. Replace brick panels, logs, etc.
GAS INSTALLATION
Proceed once the vent installation is complete.
1. Move the fireplace into position and secure using the nailing
tabs and/or secure to the floor through the ¼"ø holes located at
either end of the base.
2. Install the gas supply line (ie rigid black pipe, 1/2" type "L"
copper tubing) to the gas valve. If local codes permit, a 3/8" flex
connector and shut off valve maybe installed between the two.
The gas line and the shutoff valve (if so equipped) must not
interfere with the opening and closing of the door latch.
Seal and tighten securely. An adapter fitting is required between
the gas valve and the copper tubing or flex connector.
Do not kink flex connector.
3. Check for gas leaks by brushing on a soap and water
solution.
Do not use open flame.
Do not connect either the wall switch, thermostat or gas valve
to electricity (110 volts).
Purge all gas lines with the glass door of the fireplace open.
Assure that a continuous gas flow is at the burner before
closing the door.
4. For ease of accessibility, an optional remote wall switch or
millivolt thermostat may be installed in a convenient location.

MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION
This Mobile/Manufactured Home Listed appliance comes
factory equipped with a means to secure the unit.
The fireplace is equipped with two 1/4" diameter holes
located in the front left and right corners of the base. For
mobile home installations, the fireplace must be fastened
in place. Use #10 hex head screws, inserted through the
holes in the base to secure.
Always turn off the pilot and the fuel supply at the source,
prior to moving the mobile home.
After moving the mobile home and prior to lighting the
fireplace, ensure that the logs are positioned correctly.
This appliance is certified to be installed in an
aftermarket permanently located, manufactured
(mobile) home, where not prohibited by local codes.
This fireplace is only for use with the type of gas indicated on the rating plate. This fireplace is not convertible for use with other gases, unless a certified kit is
used.
Conversion Kits
The mobile home appliance is field convertible between
Natural Gas (NG) and Propane (LP). To convert from one
gas to another consult your Continental® dealer/distributor.
FRAMING
It is best to frame your fireplace after it is positioned and
the vent system is installed. Use steel studs and frame to
local building codes.
It is not necessary to install a hearth extension with this
fireplace system. Objects placed in front of the fireplace
should be kept a minimum of 48" away from the front face.
When roughing in the fireplace, raise the fireplace to
accommodate for the thickness of the finished floor
materials, i.e. tile, carpeting, hard wood, which if not
planned for will interfere with the opening of the lower
access door and the installation of many decorative
flashing accessories.
Note: In order to avoid the possibility of exposed insulation or vapour barrier coming in contact with the fireplace
body, it is recommended that the walls of the fireplace
enclosure be "finished" (ie: drywalled/sheetrock), as you
would finish any other outside wall of a home. This will
ensure that clearance to combustibles is maintained
within the cavity.

BLOWER INSTALLATION
BLOWER SYSTEM
The Continental® comes equipped with a blower, a heat
sensor, variable on/off speed control and a power cord.
The blower is thermally activated, so when it is turned on, it
will automatically start approximately 15 minutes after lighting the fireplace and will run for approximately 30 minutes
after the fireplace has been turned off. Use of the fan increases the output of heat. Air, drawn in through the lower
louvre access door, is driven up the back of the firebox, and
exhausted as hot air between the upper louvres.
FIGURE 48

the blower.
The wire harness provided in this kit is a universal harness. When installed, ensure that any excess wire is
contained, preventing it from making contact with any
moving or hot objects.
Drywall dust will penetrate into the blower bearings,
causing irreparable damage. Care must be taken to
prevent drywall dust from coming into contact with the
blower or its compartment. Any damage resulting from
this condition is not covered by the warranty
policy.
THERMAL SWITCH REPLACEMENT
The thermal switch is located to the left side of the lower
control area, on a bracket and mounted beside the junction
box.

OPERATION / MAINTENANCE
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
When lit for the first time, the fireplace will emit a slight
odour for a few hours. This is a normal temporary condition caused by the curing of the logs and the "burn-in" of
internal paints and lubricants used in the manufacturing
process and will not occur again. Simply open a window to
sufficiently ventilate the room.
After extended periods of non-operation such as following
a vacation or a warm weather season, the fireplace may
emit a slight odour for a few hours. This is caused by dust
particles in the heat exchanger burning off. Open a window
to sufficiently ventilate the room.
PURGE ALL GAS LINES WITH THE GLASS DOOR OF
THE FIREPLACE OPEN. ASSURE THAT A CONTINUOUS GAS FLOW IS AT THE BURNER BEFORE
CLOSING THE DOOR.
FOR YOUR SAFETY READ BEFORE LIGHTING:
A. This fireplace is equipped with a pilot which must be
lit by hand while following these instructions exactly.
B. Before operating smell all around the fireplace area for
gas and next to the floor because some gas is heavier
than air and will settle on the floor.
C. Use only your hand to turn the gas control knob. Never
use tools. If the knob will not turn by hand, do not try to
repair it. Call a qualified service technician. Force or
attempted repair may result in a fire or explosion.
D. Do not use this fireplace if any part has been under
water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to
inspect the fireplace and replace any part of the control
system and any gas control which has been under water.

MAINTENANCE
TURN OFF THE GAS AND ELECTRICAL
POWER BEFORE SERVICING THE FIREPLACE.
CAUTION: Label all wires prior to disconnection when servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause improper and dangerous operation. Verify proper operation after servicing.
This fireplace and its venting system should be inspected
before use and at least annually by a qualified service person. The fireplace area must be kept clear and free of
combustible materials, gasoline or other flammable vapours and liquids. The flow of combustion and ventilation
air must not be obstructed.
1. In order to properly clean the burner and pilot assembly,
remove the logs to expose both assemblies.
2. Keep the control compartment, logs, burner, air shutter
opening and the area surrounding the logs clean by vacuuming or brushing, at least once a year.
3. Check to see that all burner ports are burning. Clean out
any of the ports which may not be burning or are not
burning properly.
4. Check to see that the pilot flame is large enough to
engulf the thermocouple and thermopile and reaches
toward the burner with the third jet.
5. Replace the cleaned logs.
6. Check to see that the main burner ignites completely on
all openings when the gas knob for the burner is turned
on. A 5 to 10 second total light-up period is satisfactory. If
ignition takes longer, consult your Continental® dealer /
distributor.
7. Check that the gasketing on the sides, top and bottom of
the door is not broken or missing. Replace if necessary.

Closing the air shutter will cause a more yellow flame, but
can lead to carboning. WARNING: Carbon can be
distributed in surrounding living areas if the air shutter
is improperly adjusted. Opening the air shutter will cause
a more blue flame, but can cause flame lifting from the
burner ports. The flame may not appear yellow immediately; allow 15 to 30 minutes for the final flame colour to be
established.

AIR SHUTTER ADJUSTMENT MUST ONLY BE
DONE BY A QUALIFIED
GAS INSTALLER!
To access the air shutter,
remove the two screws that secure the cover to the air
housing, taking care not to damage the gasket.
NOTE: Make sure the orifice is seated over the
air shutter properly.
The air shutter on this CDV70 has been set for the longest horizontal vent length possible - 20 ft. Failure to
adjust the air shutter on shorter vent runs will result in a much smaller than intended flame appearance.
The air shutter opening may be adjusted to as little as 1/4" (for propane models) depending on length and
configuration. Please refer to the installation manual for adjustment procedure.
