See Accessories, page 34.
Product Features
Operation
Piezo Ignition System
This vent-free fireplace insert is clean burning. It requires no outside venting. There is no
heat loss out a vent or up a chimney. Heat is
generated by both realistic flames and glowing
embers. When used without the blower, the
fireplace insert requires no electricity making
it ideal for emergency backup heat.
This fireplace insert has a piezo ignitor. This
system requires no matches, batteries or
other sources to light fireplace insert.
Safety Device
This fireplace insert has a pilot with an Oxygen Depletion Sensing (ODS) safety shutoff
system. The ODS/pilot is a required feature
for vent-free room heaters. The ODS system
shuts off the fireplace insert if there is not
enough fresh air.
Blower Assembly
This fireplace insert is equipped with a blower
assembly. The blower operates thermostatically and has a variable control. The blower
circulates heated air from the fireplace insert
into the room. Use of blower is optional.
Air For Combustion and Ventilation
WARNING: This heater shall
not be installed in a room or
space unless the required volume of indoor combustion air
is provided by the method described in the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, the
International Fuel Gas Code, or
applicable local codes. Read the
following instructions to insure
proper fresh air for this and
other fuel-burning appliances
in your home.
Today’s homes are built more energy efficient
than ever. New materials, increased insulation
and new construction methods help reduce
heat loss in homes. Home owners weather
strip and caulk around windows and doors to
keep the cold air out and the warm air in. During heating months, home owners want their
homes as airtight as possible.
While it is good to make your home energy
efficient, your home needs to breathe. Fresh
air must enter your home. All fuel-burning appliances need fresh air for proper combustion
and ventilation.
6
Exhaust fans, fireplaces, clothes dryers and
fuel burning appliances draw air from the house
to operate. You must provide adequate fresh
air for these appliances. This will insure proper
venting of vented fuel-burning appliances.
PROVIDING ADEQUATE
VENTILATION
The following are excerpts from National
Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air
for Combustion and Ventilation.
All spaces in homes fall into one of the three
following ventilation classifications:
1. Unusually Tight Construction
2. Unconfined Space
3. Confined Space
The information on pages 6 through 8 will help
you classify your space and provide adequate
ventilation.
Unusually Tight Construction
The air that leaks around doors and windows
may provide enough fresh air for combustion
and ventilation. However, in buildings of unusually tight construction, you must provide
additional fresh air.
Unusually tight construction is defined as
construction where:
www.fmiproducts.com
113195-01K
Air For Combustion and Ventilation
Continued
a. walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a continuous
water vapor retarder with a rating of
one perm (6 x 10-11 kg per pa-sec-m2) or
less with openings gasketed or sealed
and
b. weather stripping has been added on
openable windows and doors and
c. caulking or sealants are applied to
areas such as joints around window
and door frames, between sole plates
and floors, between wall-ceiling joints,
between wall panels, at penetrations
for plumbing, electrical and gas lines
and at other openings.
If your home meets all of the three criteria
above, you must provide additional fresh
air. See Ventilation Air From Outdoors,
page 8.
If your home does not meet all of the three
criteria above, proceed to Determining
Fresh-Air Flow for Heater Location.
Confined and Unconfined Space
The National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/
NFPA 54 defines a confined space as a space
whose volume is less than 50 cubic feet per
1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in
that space and an unconfined space as a space
whose volume is not less than 50 cubic feet per
1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 m3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in
that space. Rooms communicating directly with
the space in which the appliances are installed*,
through openings not furnished with doors, are
considered a part of the unconfined space.
* Adjoining rooms are communicating only if
there are doorless passageways or ventilation
grills between them.
DETERMINING FRESH-AIR FLOW
FOR Heater LOCATION
Determining if You Have a Confined or
Unconfined Space
Use this work sheet to determine if you have
a confined or unconfined space.
Space: Includes the room in which you will install
fireplace plus any adjoining rooms with doorless passageways or ventilation grills between
the rooms.
1. Determine the volume of the space (length
x width x height).
Length x Width x Height =__________cu. ft.
(volume of space)
113195-01K
Example: Space size 22 ft. (length) x 18 ft.
(width) x 8 ft. (ceiling height) = 3168 cu. ft.
(volume of space)
If additional ventilation to adjoining room
is supplied with grills or openings, add the
volume of these rooms to the total volume
of the space.
2. Multiply the space volume by 20 to determine
the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support.
_ ________ (volume of space) x 20 = (Maximum Btu/Hr the space can support)
Example: 3168 cu. ft. (volume of space) x 20
= 63,360 (maximum Btu/Hr the space can
support)
3. Add the Btu/Hr of all fuel burning appliances
in the space.
Vent-free fireplace
___________ Btu/Hr
Gas water heater*
___________ Btu/Hr
Gas furnace
___________ Btu/Hr
Vented gas heater
___________ Btu/Hr
Gas fireplace logs
___________ Btu/Hr
Other gas appliances* +__________ Btu/Hr
Tota
=__________ Btu/Hr
* Do not include direct-vent gas appliances.
Direct-vent draws combustion air from the
outdoors and vents to the outdoors.
40,000
Example:
Gas water heater
___________
33,000 Btu/Hr
Vent-free fireplace
+__________
73,000 Btu/Hr
Total
=__________ Btu/Hr
4. Compare the maximum Btu/Hr the space
can support with the actual amount of Btu/
Hr used.
_ _______ Btu/Hr (maximum the space can
support)
_ _______ Btu/Hr (actual amount of Btu/Hr
used)
Example: 63,360 Btu/Hr (maximum the
space can support)
73,000 Btu/Hr (actual amount of
Btu/Hr used)
The space in the above example is a confined
space because the actual Btu/Hr used is more
than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support. You must provide additional fresh air. Your
options are as follows:
A. Rework worksheet, adding the space of
an adjoining room. If the extra space provides an unconfined space, remove door
to adjoining room or add ventilation grills
between rooms. See Ventilation Air From
Inside Building, page 8.
B. Vent room directly to the outdoors. See
Ventilation Air From Outdoors, page 8.
C. Install a lower Btu/Hr fireplace, if lower Btu/
Hr size makes room unconfined.
www.fmiproducts.com
7
AIR FOR COMBUSTION AND VENTILATION
Continued
If the actual Btu/Hr used is less than the maximum Btu/Hr the space can support, the space is
an unconfined space. You will need no additional
fresh air ventilation.
WARNING: If the area in
which the heater may be operated does not meet the required
volume for indoor combustion
air, combustion and ventilation
air shall be provided by one of
the methods described in the
National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54, the International Fuel Gas Code, or applicable
local codes.
Ventilation Air From Outdoors
Provide extra fresh air by using ventilation
grills or ducts. You must provide two permanent openings: one within 12" of the ceiling
and one within 12" of the floor. Connect these
items directly to the outdoors or spaces open
to the outdoors. These spaces include attics
and crawl spaces. Follow the National Fuel
Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for
Combustion and Ventilation for required size
of ventilation grills or ducts.
IMPORTANT: Do not provide openings for inlet
or outlet air into attic if attic has a thermostatcontrolled power vent. Heated air entering the
attic will activate the power vent. Any outside
air ducts and/or ash dumps in the fireplace shall
be permanently closed at the time of appliance
installation.
VENTILATION AIR
Ventilation Air From Inside Building
This fresh air would come from an adjoining
unconfined space. When ventilating to an
adjoining unconfined space, you must provide
two permanent openings: one within 12" of the
ceiling and one within 12" of the floor on the
wall connecting the two spaces (see options
1 and 2, Figure 3). You can also remove door
into adjoining room (see option 3, Figure 3).
Follow the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for Combustion and
Ventilation for required size of ventilation
grills or ducts.

For propane/LP units, installer must supply
an external regulator. External regulator will
reduce incoming gas pressure. You must
reduce incoming gas pressure to between
11" and 14" of water. If you do not reduce
incoming gas pressure, heater regulator damage could occur. Install external regulator with
the vent pointing down as shown in Figure 13.
Pointing vent down protects it from freezing
rain or sleet.
CAUTION: Use only new,
black iron or steel pipe. Internally-tinned copper tubing may
be used in certain areas. Check
your local codes. Use pipe of
1/2" diameter or greater to allow
proper gas volume to fireplace
insert. If pipe is too small, undue
loss of volume will occur.
Installation must include an equipment shutoff
valve and plugged 1/8" NPT tap. Locate NPT
tap within reach for test gauge hook up. NPT
tap must be upstream from fireplace insert
(see Figure 14).
IMPORTANT: Install equipment shutoff valve
in an accessible location. The equipment
shutoff valve is for turning on or shutting off
the gas to the appliance.
Check your building codes for any special
requirements for locating equipment shutoff
valve to fireplaces.
Apply pipe joint sealant lightly to male NPT
threads. This will prevent excess sealant from
going into pipe. Excess sealant in pipe could
result in clogged fireplace valves.

WARNING: Use pipe joint
sealant that is resistant to liquid

We recommend that you install a sediment
trap in supply line as shown in Figure 14.
Locate sediment trap where it is within reach
for cleaning. Install in piping system between
fuel supply and heater. Locate sediment trap
where trapped matter is not likely to freeze.
A sediment trap traps moisture and contaminants. This keeps them from going into
fireplace insert gas controls. If sediment trap
is not installed or is installed wrong, fireplace
may not run properly.

Safety Features
When away from home for an extended period
of time or as a child safety feature to prevent
accidental ignition of the fireplace, receiver
ON/OFF/REMOTE switch should be in the
OFF position.
Auto Shutoff Feature
1. If the average room temperature reaches
a range of 82° F (28° C) to 92° F (33° C),
the hand-held remote control will perform
a safety override and shut the fireplace off.
This feature is not available in the MANU
mode.
2. The receiver continuously receives signals from the hand-held remote to control
the room temperature. If the hand-held remote is misplaced, obstructed, or for any
reason cannot transmit to the receiver,
the receiver will shut off the fireplace. This
will occur in 8 or more minutes depending
upon location of remote transmitter and
strength of batteries.
Key Pad Lock Feature
This feature allows the user to lock/unlock
keypad on hand-held remote in MANU or
AUTO mode to prevent inadvertent operation (i.e. children operating hand-held remote
control, etc.). The keypad is locked in either
on or off. Press POWER and LOCK buttons
together to turn unit on or off.
OPTIONAL BLOWER
OPERATION
Locate blower switch by opening lower louver
on fireplace insert. Blower switch is located at
lower left inside louver door.
This thermostat-controlled blower has three
settings: ON, OFF and AUTO. In the ON
position, blower will operate constantly. In
the OFF position, blower will not operate.
In the AUTO position, blower will start when
thermostat senses a sufficient increase in
firebox temperature.
Note: Your gas logs and thermostat blower
will not turn on and off at the same time. The
fireplace insert may run for several minutes
before blower turns on. After heater modulates
to pilot position, blower will continue to run.
Blower will shut off after firebox temperature
decreases.
Note: It is safe to operate fireplace insert with
blower turned off. However, blower helps distribute heated air from fireplace insert.
Inspecting Burners
Check pilot flame pattern and burner flame
patterns often.
Pilot Burner
Thermocouple Pilot Burner
PILOT FLAME PATTERN
Figure 36 shows a correct pilot flame pattern.
Figure 37 shows an incorrect pilot flame pattern. The incorrect pilot flame is not properly
heating the thermocouple. When the thermocouple cools, the heater will shut down.
If pilot flame pattern is incorrect, as shown
in Figure 37
• turn heater off (see To Turn Off Gas to Appliance, page 20)
• see Troubleshooting, page 25

Periodically inspect all burner flame holes
with heater running. All slotted burner flame
holes should be open with yellow flame present. All round burner flame holes should be
open with a small blue flame present. Some
burner flame holes may become blocked by
debris or rust, with no flame present. If so,
turn off heater and let cool. Remove blockage,
blocked burner flame holes will create soot.

Cleaning and Maintenance
WARNING: Turn off heater
and let cool before cleaning.
CAUTION: You must keep
control areas, burner and circulating air passageways of heater
clean. Inspect these areas of
heater before each use. Have
heater inspected yearly by a
qualified service person. Heater
may need more frequent cleaning due to excessive lint from
carpeting, pet hair, bedding
material, etc.
WARNING: Failure to keep
the primary air opening(s) of
the burner(s) clean may result in
sooting and property damage.
113195-01K
Burner Injector Holder and
Pilot Air Inlet Hole
The primary air inlet holes allow the proper
amount of air to mix with the gas. This provides a clean burning flame. Keep these
holes clear of dust, dirt, lint and pet hair.
Clean these air inlet holes prior to each
heating season. Blocked air holes will create
soot. We recommend that you clean the unit
every three months during operation and
have heater inspected yearly by a qualified
service person.
We also recommend that you keep the burner
tube and pilot assembly clean and free of dust
and dirt. To clean these parts we recommend
using compressed air no greater than 30 PSI.
Your local computer store, hardware store or
home center may carry compressed air in a
can. If using compressed air in a can, please
follow directions on can. If you don’t follow
directions on can, you could damage pilot
assembly.
