The use of wallpaper adjacent to this
fireplace is not recommended, as the
high heat given off by this fireplace may
adversely effect the binders in the adhesive used to apply the wallpaper.
Mantels
When the insert is being installed into a woodburning
fireplace the minimum the mantel can be above the
fireplace is governed by local building codes applicable
to woodburning fireplaces. Consult local authorities
having jurisdiction for these clearances.
For applications requiring the use of a Zero Clearance
Kit, the minimum a mantel can protrude above the
fireplace is 24" (610mm) from the top of the upper
louvres. The maximum mantel depth is 8" (200mm).
(Fig. 2)
The underside of the mantel will get quite
warm. Use only finishes which are heat
resistant and do not discolour.

Framing & Finishing
For Zero Clearance Kit applications it is important to
determine the finished facing material before beginning
to frame. This will allow for the thickness of the
finishing material between the frame and the fireplace
trim.
Similarily, consideration must be given to the 1"
(25mm) depth of the air inlet channel sitting on the
fireplace base. Finishing material for the hearth should
be flush with the top of the air inlet channel.
If the fireplace is installed at floor level a noncombustible hearth must extend a minimum 12"
(305mm) in front of the fireplace.
If the fireplace is recessed into the wall and at least 12"
(305mm) above floor level, no hearth is required.
Combustion Air
It is very important that an adequate air supply is
available when the unit is being operated. Since most
homes of today are tightly sealed and insulated,
additional make-up air is usually necessary.
This fireplace has been designed to operate by
drawing air in from the front and outer perimeters of
the fireplace. The air provides combustion air ensuring
a clean burning flame, dilution air for proper venting, as
well as, the air which the fan circulates over the
firebox/heat exchanger system.
Insulating around the fireplace will result in overheating
and possible malfunctioning of the circulating fan.
A (3" for RHE25, 4" for RHE32 and RHE42) diameter
Class "B" vent must be used when installing the
fireplace insert along with the Zero Clearance Kit. The
vent system must be a minimum height of 12' (3.7m).

Vermont Castings, Majestic Products RHE Natural Vent Insert
Zero Clearance Applications
An alternate air supply is recommended
with this component.
For installations other than in existing woodburning
fireplaces such as new construction or renovation
projects, a Zero Clearance Kit must be used. The kit
enables these inserts to be installed in combustible
environments. It is recommended that an Air Kit
(AKZC) be installed whenever using a Zero Clearance
Kit. Consideration must be given to the dimensions of
the Zero Clearance Kit and the requirements of the Air
Kit when planning the installation.

Input ratings are shown in BTU per hour and are
certified without deration for elevations up to
4,500 feet (1,370m) above sea level.
For elevations above 4,500 feet (1,370m) in USA,
installations must be in accordance with the
current ANSI Z223.1 and/or local codes having
jurisdiction.
In Canada, please consult provincial and/or local
authorities having jurisdiction for installations at
elevations above 4,500 feet (1,370m).
Preparation
Before beginning, remove the glass frame from the
fireplace. Also check to make sure there is no hidden
damage to the fireplace. Take a minute and plan out
the gas, vent and electrical supply. Refer to Glass
Frame Removal section.
Gas Line Installation
When purging the gas line, the front
glass must be removed.
The gas pipeline can be brought into the fireplace base
from the right side. It is most convenient to install it
from the right side into the gas fittings provided.
When using copper or flex connector use only
approved fittings. Always provide a union when using
black iron pipe so that gas line can be easily
disconnected for burner or fan servicing. Refer to gas
specifications for pressure details and ratings.
The gas line connection can be made of either properly
tinned 3/8" copper pipe, 3/8" rigid pipe or an approved
flex connector.
The gas control inlet is 3/8" N.P.T. therefore the 1/2"
rigid gas line must be reduced to 3/8" N.P.T. Typical
installation layout for rigid pipe is shown following. (Fig.

or solid fuels unless all original parts have been
replaced and the fireplace has been re-approved
by the authority having jurisdiction.
Cutting any sheet metal parts of the
fireplace, in which the gas fireplace insert
is to be installed, is prohibited.
If the factory-built fireplace has no gas
access hole(s) provided, an access hole
of 1¹⁄₂" (37.5mm) or less may be drilled
through the lower sides or bottom of the
firebox in a proper workmanship like
manner. This access hole must be
plugged with a noncombustible insulation
after the gas supply line has been
installed.
Ensure there are no obstructions to side
air passages of decorative trim once
installed on insert.
WARNING
Some factory built fireplaces have air passages
on face of fireplace for zero clearance capabilities. All trim kits are designed so as to allow
airflow to these passages. Under no circumstances should these passages be blocked.
1. The Majestic gas inserts are designed for recessed
installations into solid fuel Masonry or Factory Built
Noncombustible fireplaces that have been installed
in accordance with the National, Provincial, State
and local building codes.

air cannot leak into the chimney.
7. Glass door, screen kits and log grate may be
removed for installation of insert into factory built
fireplace.
8. Install the insert without the trim frame and make all
gas, venting and electrical connections.
9. Install decorative trim frame. Please refer to Frame
Assembly and Mounting instructions on this manual.
Common Flue Installations
In some areas it is possible to vent more than one gas
fireplace into the same flue. You must ensure the flue
being shared has the proper capacity to handle both
fireplaces. Check installation codes for venting capacity
information.
As always it is best to check with the authority having
jurisdiction prior to commencement of the installation.
Liner Installation
Insert liner from top of chimney through the damper
opening and attach to 3" flue collar (for RHE25); 4" flue
collar (for RHE32 & RHE42). For best results use
three (3) sheet metal screws and a hose clamp.

Test Chimney Draw
A "Chimney Draw" test must be made before the
installation is complete.
1. Close all doors and windows in the home and start
exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom.
2. Light unit and operate for 5 minutes.
3. Hold an ignited match or cigarette in front of the
unit. Refer to Figure 11 for the location of the draft
hood opening.
4. Check to make sure smoke from the match or
cigarette is drawn into the fireplace. If it is not, turn
the unit off and check for causes creating the lack of
adequate draft.
Test for Draft at This Location
For natural draft inserts packing fibreglass insulation
around the liner in the damper area will isolate the
fireplace cavity from the chimney and prevent drafts
and noises during operation.
In case the fireplace opening is only minimum height
(17¹⁄₂" for RHE25) (20" for RHE32) (22³⁄₄" for RHE42)
and access from the front is not possible, remove the
flue collar plate - unscrew and slide out from the back
of the unit. Now attach the liner to the flue collar, lift up
and simply slide flue collar plate back onto the unit top.
It is important the plate is completely inserted and the
front screw is fastened again in order to line up the flue
outlet and the liner properly. (Fig. 10)
If fireplace lintel is wider than 8"
(205mm), the height of the fireplace
opening must be 25" (635mm) to allow
for a 90° offset elbow to be installed.

Glass Cleaning
It will be necessary to clean the glass periodically.
During start-up, condensation, which is normal, forms
on the inside of the glass and causes lint, dust and
other airborne particles to cling to the glass surface.
Also initial paint curing may deposit a slight film on the
glass. It is therefore recommended the glass be
cleaned two or three times with a non-ammonia
household cleaner and warm water (we recommend
gas fireplace glass cleaner). After that the glass should
be cleaned two or three times during each heating
season depending on the circumstances present.
Clean glass after first two weeks of
operation.
1 . Remove front glass. (Refer to "Glass Removal"
section)
2. Remove logs from packaging.
3. Place rear log (JR4/KR4 or SR4) on rear bracket
(ensure log is seated properly, leveled and
centered to the unit), so it will not move from side to
side and is firmly positioned on the bracket.
4. Slip front ember log (KR1or SR1) down in the front
deflector.
5. Place front left log (JR2/KR2 or SR2) on top
burner, left side. Use log's bottom holes to locate it
into the left bracket log locator studs.
6. Place front right log (JR3/KR3 or SR3) on top of
burner, right side. Use log's bottom holes to locate
it into the right bracket log locator studs.
7. Place burner lava rock material on top of burner.
(Refer to Figs. 17, 18 & 19 for proper location).

Upon completing the gas line connection, a small
amount of air will be in the lines. When first lighting unit
with pilot light, it will take a few minutes to purge
themselves of air. Once the purging is complete, the
pilot and burner will light and operate as indicated in
the instruction manual. Subsequent lightings of the
heater will not require such purging.
When lit for the first time, the appliance will emit a
slight odor for awhile. This is due to paint and
lubricants used in the manufacturing process. After
each lighting, vapor may condense and fog the glass;
this moisture disappears within a few minutes of
burning.

WARNING: Before doing any gas control service work, remove glass front.
SYMPTOM
1. Spark ignitor will not light
2. Pilot will not stay lit after
carefully following lighting
instructions.
3. Pilot burning, no gas to
main burner
4. Frequent pilot outage
problem.
10000836
POSSIBLE CAUSES
CORRECTIVE ACTION
A. Defective or misaligned
electrode at pilot.
Using a match, light pilot. If pilot lights, turn off
pilot and push the red button again. If pilot will not
light - check gap at electrode and pilot-should be
1/8" to have a strong spark.
B. Defective ignitor (Push Button)
Push Piezo Ignitor Button. Check for spark at
electrode and pilot. If no spark to pilot, and elec
trode wire is properly connected, replace ignitor.
A. Defective pilot generator
(thermocouple), remote wall
switch.
Check pilot flame. Must impinge on thermo
couple/thermopile. Note: this pilot burner assem
bly utilizes both-a thermocouple and a thermopile.
The thermocouple operates the main valve
operation (On and Off). Clean and or adjust pilot for
maximum flame impingement on thermopile and
thermocouple.
B. Defective automatic valve
Turn valve knob to “Pilot”. Maintain flow to pilot;
milivolt meter should read greater than 10 mV. If
the reading is okay and the pilot does not stay on,
replace the gas valve. Note: An interrupter block
(not supplied) must be used to conduct this test.
A. Wall switch or wires defective
Check wall switch and wires for proper connec
tions. Jumper wire accross terminals at wall
switch, if burner comes on, replace defective wall
switch. If okay, jumper wires across wall switch
wires at valve, if burner comes on, wires are faulty
or connections are bad.
B. Thermopile may not be
generating sufficient
millivoltage.
1. Be sure wire connections from thermopile at
gas valve terminals are tight and thermopile is
fully inserted into pilot bracket.
2. One of the wall switch wires may be grounded.
Remove wall switch wires from valve terminals if
pilot now stays lit, trace wall switch wiring for
ground. May be grounded to fireplace or gas
supply.
3. Check thermopile with millivolt meter. Take
reading at thermopile terminals of gas valve.
Should read 250-300 millivolts (minimum 150)
while holding valve knob depressed in pilot
position and wall switch “Off”. Replace faulty
thermopile if reading is below specified minimum.
C. Plugged burner orifice.
Check burner orifices for debris and remove.
D. Defective automatic valve
operator.
Turn valve knob to “On”, place wall switch to “On”
millivolt meter should read greater than 100 mV. If
the reading is okay and the burner does not come
on, replace the gas valve.
A. Pilot flame may be too low
or blowing (high) causing the
pilot safety to drop out.
Clean and/or adjust pilot flame for maximum flame
impingement on thermopile and thermocouple.
B. Possible blockage of the vent
terminal.
Check the vent terminal for blockage (recycling the
flue gases)

Maintenance
Burner and Burner Compartment
It is important to keep the burner and the burner
compartment clean. At least once per year the logs and
lava rock/ember material should be removed and the
burner compartment vacuumed and wiped out. Remove
and replace the logs as per the instructions in this
manual.
Always handle the logs with care as they
are fragile and may also be hot if the
fireplace has been in use.
Fan Assembly
The fan unit requires periodic cleaning. At least once
per month in the operating season, open the lower
louvre panels and wipe or vacuum the area around the
fan to remove any build up of dust or lint.
Visually inspect pilot. Brush or blow away any dust or
lint accumulation. If pilot orifice is plugged, disassembly
may be required to remove any foreign material from
the orifice or tubing.
To obtain proper operation, it is imperative the pilot and
burner's flame characteristics are steady, not lifting or
floating.
Typically, the top 1/8" of the thermopile should be
engulfed in the pilot flame. (Page 13, Fig. 25)
Brass Cleaning
Clean the brass trim with a soft clean cloth, slightly
dampened with lemon oil and buff with a soft dry cloth.
Do not use brass polish or household cleaners as these
products will damage the trim. Lemon oil can be
obtained at supermarkets or hardware stores.
Cleaning the Standing Pilot
Control System
The burner and control system consists of:
• main burner
• pilot burner
• gas orifice
• thermopile
• combination millivolt gas valve
Most of these components may require only an occasional checkup and cleaning and some may require
adjustment. If repair is necessary, it should be performed by a qualified technician.
In order to properly clean the burner and pilot assembly,
turn off the gas to the unit, remove the window frame
panel and logs exposing the burner and pilot assembly.
Clean all foreign materials from the top of the burner.
Check to make sure that burner parts are clean.
