COMPATIBILITY
99000137 - Pendleton (745, 790), Rainier (945, 990), and 1196 (with 21” wide ashlip)

PACKING LIST
• Front Blower and Snap Disk Assembly
• Power Cord
• Extended Air Control Rod - for the Avalon Rainer (945/990) & Olympic (1190)
• Instruction Sheet
REQUIRED TOOLS
• Phillips Head Screwdriver
• Slip-Joint Pliers (if switching the power cord to the left side)
TO SWITCH THE POWER CORD TO THE LEFT SIDE:
Use a pair of pliers to disconnect the strain relief which holds the power cord in place. With the power cord slackened, the
molex connectors that attach the power cord to the blower assembly may be disconnected. Pry the button plug from the left
side of the blower assembly and insert it into the hole on the right side. Pull the left side molex connector out from behind
the deflection plate and cut the nylon tie that holds the wire back. Insert the molex connector on the power cord through the
hole on the left side of the blower assembly and attach it to the left side molex connector. Route the wire directly behind the
blower cage. Place the strain relief over the power cord (it should be in the same location on the power cord that it was
before – approximately 2" from where the wires split). Insert the strain relief into the hole on the left side until the strain
relief locks in place. Make sure the power cord, wires, or molex assembly do not protrude into the opening of the blower.
The wires tuck in here, directly
behind the blower cage.
Left Side of
Blower
Assembly
Remove the strain relief by squeezing it
from the top and bottom with a pair of
slip-joint pliers.
Disconnect the molex plug inside the
blower assembly. Remove the power
cord by pulling it out of the hole
exposed by removing the strain relief.
Remove the button plug from
the left side and insert it into
the hole on the right side.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (see the illustrations on the following page)
1.
2.
3.
On the Avalon Rainier (945/990) and Olympic (1190), remove the button plug located underneath the control knob on the
blower assembly. Remove the wood air control knob on the appliance, located below the ashlip, by unscrewing it with a
phillips head screwdriver.
Place the blower assembly near the appliance and insert the snap disk into the lower left convection chamber (see the
illustration on the following page). It should wedge into position in back of the stiffener on the left side. It does not fit
tightly, remove it and bend the metal legs to make it taller. The round disc must be facing upwards and come in contact with
the bottom of the firebox for the blower to operate correctly.
Before sliding the blower assembly in place, make sure the wires leading to the snap disk are routed above the left side
blower outlet (to prevent damage to the wires during installation). Slide the blower assembly underneath the ashlip so the
two clips on the lower back edge of the blower assembly slide over the front edge of the baseplate. You should be able to
feel the blower assembly snap into place as you slide it in. On the Rainier (945/990) and Olympic (1190), attach the
extended air control rod by inserting it into the knock-out on the blower assembly and screwing it onto the threaded rod.
Then attach the wood air control knob that was removed in step 1 to the extended air control rod.
