VENTILATION AND CONFINED SPACE SAFETY INFORMATION
Your vent-free gas burner system SHALL NOT BE INSTALLED IN A CONFINED SPACE or unusually tight
construction unless provisions are made for adequate combustion and ventilation air.
• The National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54 defines a confined space as a space whose volume is less
than 50 cu. ft. per 1,000 BTU per hour (4.8 meters 3 per kw) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed
in that space.
• An unconfined space is a space where volume is at least 50 cu. ft. per 1,000 BTU per hour (4.8 meters 3 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.
WARNING: Do not install the unvented burner system
where the room is considered a confined
space (see Fig. 5-1).
To determine if the area where this burner system is to be
installed fits the definition of an unconfined space, multiply
the length of the room by the width of the room by the height
of the room, then multiply by 20. The result is the maximum
BTU allowed.
(Length x Width x Height x 20 = Maximum BTUs allowed)
Example: To install a Peterson Real-Fyre® vent-free gas
burner system with 36,000 BTU, maximum, in a space
with no other gas-burning appliances, the space MUST be
1,800 cu. ft. or larger.
Assuming an 8' ceiling, floor dimensions must be a minimum
of 225 sq. ft.,
i.e.; 18'x12.5'=225 sq ft (see Fig. 5-1).

CONDITIONS OF THE HOMEOWNER that
may be adversely impacted by combustion
products created by burning natural or
propane gas.
Installation in a tightly constructed home and/
or installation at high altitudes may cause your
vent-free burner system to produce excessive heat or
excessive moisture. The oxygen depletion sensor may
shut down the burner system. These conditions may be
corrected by opening a window or otherwise increasing
the number of air changes in the home.
L
L x W x H x 20 = Maximum BTU allowed
WARNING
If the area in which the heater may be operated is
smaller than that defined as an unconfined space or if
the building is of unusually tight construction, provide
adequate combustion and ventilation air by one of the
methods described in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI
Z223.1/NFPA 54, Air for Combustion and Ventilation, or
applicable local codes.
REMEMBER
L x W x H x 20 = MAXIMUM BTUs ALLOWED
If the space is smaller than the above formula allows,
and/or smaller than the examples and diagrams on
this page specify, DO NOT install the vent-free burner
system unless provisions for additional combustion
and ventilation air are made.
**Unusually tight construction is defined as construction where:
a. Walls and ceilings exposed to the outside atmosphere have a
continuous water vapor retarder with a rating of 1 perm (6x10-11 kg
per pa-sec-m2), or less with openings gasketed or sealed;
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.
The Peterson Real-Fyre® vent-free burner system
has been certified to function safely and reliably with
emission by-products well within accepted safety and
health standards. Your specific medical or physical
condition may render you more sensitive to products
created by burning natural or propane gas. If this is the
case, you should open a window or otherwise increase
ventilation.

MINIMUM CLEARANCES TO COMBUSTIBLES
If the vent-free burner system is installed in a factory
built fireplace, follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for
minimum clearances to combustibles.
In the absence of such guidelines, follow the instructions
below:
Because of these variables, we cannot guarantee that
heat warping or discoloration will never occur. The
potential for heat warping or discoloration may exist
no matter what item(s) you are burning in the fireplace,
including wood.
Minimum clearances to
side walls and ceiling
Clearances to Combustible Construction:
Sidewalls: 16" from side of fireplace opening (Fig. 6-1).
Ceiling: 42" from top of fireplace opening (Fig. 6-1).
Flooring: See IN FRONT OF FIREPLACE section below.
Mantel: See ABOVE THE FIREPLACE section below &
42"
Fig. 6-1
Fig. 6-1. Also see Fig. x-1, & x-2 on following page).
Note: Clearances to combustible construction
are those distances required to ensure that
fireplace mantels, facings, walls, ceilings, and
floorings will not catch fire.
In most cases, these clearances should also be
adequate to prevent any discoloration or warping due
to heat. However, every gas burner installation presents
a different and unique set of circumstances involving
many variables beyond the control of the manufacturer.
These include paint or finish composition, previous
exposure to heat, methods and quality of construction,
air flow patterns, glass doors, fans or blowers, etc.
16"
Side wall:
Ceiling:
16" from side of fireplace opening.
42" from top of fireplace opening.
The dimensions in Fig. 6-1 are MINIMUM
CLEARANCES to maintain when you install this
burner system. BOTH SIDES of the fireplace opening
MUST BE AT LEAST 16" from any combustible
sidewalls. The ceiling MUST BE at least 42" from
the top of the fireplace opening.
IN FRONT OF THE FIREPLACE:
Be certain that combustible flooring material (i.e.: carpet, tile, etc.) is not too close to the vent-free unit. If the
vent-free burner system is at floor level or less than 6" above the floor, there MUST be at least 12" (1 foot) of
noncombustible material between the front of the fireplace and any combustible flooring.
ABOVE THE FIREPLACE:
To install the vent-free burner system, there must ALWAYS be noncombustible or heat resistant material
immediately above the fireplace opening. Heat resistant materials (i.e., marble or slate) must be at least 5/8"
thick. Sheet metal should not be installed onto combustible materials.
If you DO NOT install a fireplace hood, there MUST be at least 12" of noncombustible or heat resistant material
immediately above the fireplace opening (see A in Fig. x-1 on the following page). If you DO install a fireplace
hood, there MUST be at least 10" of noncombustible or heat resistant material immediately above the fireplace
opening (see B in Fig. x-2 on the following page). If there is a wooden mantel, shelf, or other combustible
projection above the fireplace, follow the information in the Figures on the next page.
EXAMPLE: If the fireplace has a combustible projection (mantel or shelf) 20" above the top of the firebox,
the maximum horizontal projection out from the face of the fireplace will be:
1. If a fireplace hood is not installed - 2.5" (see Fig. x-1 on the following page).
2. If a fireplace hood is installed ------ 10" (see Fig. x-2 on the following page).
A fireplace hood deflects heat away from the fireplace face and mantel, reducing the potential for heat related
warping or discoloration. The use of a fireplace hood is highly recommended.
IF YOU CANNOT MEET THESE MINIMUM CLEARANCES, YOU MUST OPERATE THE VENT-FREE
BURNER SYSTEM WITH THE CHIMNEY FLUE DAMPER OPEN.

install this gas appliance if minimum pressure is not available. The maximum inlet gas-supply pressure is
10.5" w.c. on natural gas and 13" w.c. on L.P. gas. The L.P. source must be regulated. (Do not connect this
appliance directly to an unregulated L.P. gas tank - this can cause an explosion.) Do not connect
this appliance to a portable L.P. gas cylinder.
H. The gas piping system must be sized to provide minimum inlet pressure at the maximum flow rate
(BTU/hr). Undue pressure loss will occur if the pipe is too small, or the run is too long. Gas supply pipe must
be 1/2" minimum interior diameter. If the gas line is longer than 20', a larger diameter line may be necessary.
Refer to the NFPA 54 guidelines for further details.
I.
The minimum clearance from the fireplace opening to combustible materials on side walls and ceiling must
be maintained as outlined in MINIMUM CLEARANCE TO COMBUSTIBLES - WALLS AND CEILING.
J. At least 10"-12" of noncombustible or heat-resistant material is required above the fireplace. A fireplace
hood will be required to act as a heat deflector in protecting combustible fireplace surrounds (facing and/or
mantel) if certain minimum clearances cannot be met.
K. Be certain that combustible flooring material (i.e., carpet, tile, etc.) is not too close to this gas appliance. If
this appliance is at floor level or less than 6" above the floor, there must be at least 12" of noncombustible
material between the base of the fireplace and any combustible flooring.
L. Input ratings shown in BTU per hour are for elevations up to 2,000 ft. For elevations above 2,000 ft., refer
to the National Fuel Gas Code or contact the Robert H. Peterson Company before installing this product.

CONTROL SETTINGS
PILOT
ON
We recommend that before you install the decorative media,
you familiarize yourself with the control valve layout. This will
help you to be confident operating the burner system when
fully installed. See Fig. 15-2 for typical control positions.
Read settings here
Fig. 15-2 Control valve operating positions
IMPORTANT
For all valves, the air MUST be purged from the gas line before the pilot will light and burn properly. The
time needed to purge will depend on the length of the gas line to the unit and the amount of time since
the unit or gas line was last used. It may take several minutes before all the air is purged and the pilot
will light and burn properly. Reference the LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS section in this manual.
IMPORTANT
Check the gas pressure with the system burning and the control fully ON.
The burner system and its main gas 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 burner system must be
isolated from the gas-supply piping system by closing its equipment 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). This is accomplished
by closing the gas-supply line valve.
15
CHECKING GAS PRESSURE
Check the valve regulator pressure at the pressure inlet point.
Turn the inlet screw counterclockwise 2 or 3 turns and then
place the tubing of the pressure gauge over the pressure
inlet point. (The test “inlet” tap is marked IN.) After taking
the pressure reading, turn the inlet screw clockwise firmly to
reseal. Do not over-torque. Check for gas leaks.
Note: Gas pressure should be checked after connecting the
gas and prior to any further installation.

CLEANING AND SERVICING SAFETY INFORMATION
Note: Regular cleaning and servicing will be necessary to ensure proper ODS pilot operation and proper burn
characteristics.
1. Always shut off the gas to the burner system while performing service work.
2. Allow the burner system to cool before servicing.
3. Installation, service, and repair must be done by an NFI Certified or other qualified professional
service technician. The appliance MUST be inspected before use, and cleaned at least annually to
prevent burner shutdown, sooting, odors, etc. by a qualified professional service technician. It must
be checked for clean burning operation and proper ODS pilot appearance, with the correct tools to
service this unit. More frequent cleaning may be required. Excessive lint can build up on this unit from
carpeting, bedding material, pet hairs, or other particles in the air. It is imperative that all control components
and compartments, burner(s), and circulating air passageways of the appliance be kept clean and free of
all obstructions. The ODS pilot is especially sensitive to a dirty environment and will not function properly if
dirty. Make certain all air openings are clean and free of obstructions, including:
a. The air intake openings on the ODS pilot assembly.
b. The ODS pilot opening.
c. The air shutter on the burner.
WARNING: Failure to keep the primary air openings of the burner clean may result in sooting and property damage.
d. All of the ports on the burner. (See the CLEANING AND SERVICING section.)

Do not remove the rating plates or the warning tags. These are an integral safety and identification
component of this appliance.
During periods of heavy use, inspect the burner system frequently for evidence of sooting. If sooting is present,
discontinue use until the source of sooting is corrected.
CLEANING AND SERVICING THE ODS PILOT
Periodic cleaning and maintenance of the burner system is recommended to ensure that the burner system operates
properly. Cleaning of the ODS pilot system is an important part of the maintenance program.
This ODS pilot cleaning procedure must be performed by a qualified professional service technician familiar
with the specific characteristics of the burner system.
1. Turn the burner system to the OFF position and allow it to cool. Inspect the ODS pilot area (see Fig. 19-1) for any
visual contamination or debris (usually lint, hair, spider webs, or small insects). Lightly brush off all external
surfaces while vacuuming loosened debris from the ODS pilot opening. Be careful not to brush any foreign
material into the ODS pilot opening.
2. Clean out the air intake openings (see Fig. 19-1) by lightly brushing around the openings while vacuuming.
Note: It is very important that the air intake openings be kept clear of debris. Should the openings become
blocked, the ODS pilot system will not operate properly.
3. Light the ODS pilot according to the relevant LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS page. Periodically verify the ODS
pilot flame appears as shown in the CHECKING THE ODS PILOT FLAME APPEARANCE section.
4. If the ODS pilot flame does not burn as indicated in the instructions, extinguish the ODS pilot by turning the
valve to the full OFF position. Using a compressed air duster, insert the flexible nozzle through the air intake
openings, ensuring that the nozzle is pointed toward the ODS pilot opening (see Fig. 19-1). Blow air through
the intake openings to clear out any debris that may be in the system.
5. Relight the ODS pilot and inspect it to be sure it is burning as shown in the instructions. If not, extinguish the
ODS pilot and turn off the gas supply to the burner system. Using an adjustable or a 1/4" wrench, disconnect
the ODS pilot gas line (see Fig. 19-1) from the valve.
6. Insert the flexible nozzle of the compressed air duster and blow air into the input end of the ODS pilot gas line
to remove any blockages. Do not blow air directly into the ODS pilot opening. Blow air in the direction
of the gas flow.
7. Reinstall the ODS pilot gas line and check for leaks.
8. Light the ODS pilot to make sure it is operating properly (see LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS).
9. If the ODS pilot still does not operate properly, the ODS pilot may need to be replaced with the same model
as the one on the burner system.
19
OPERATING THE BURNER SYSTEM
Observe the flames. The main burner flames should be blue at the base and a
combination of blue/yellow at the body and at the tips. They should be 5" to 8" above
the glass/gems, with the center flame being the tallest (see Fig. 20-1).
Every Real-Fyre burner system leaves the factory tested and quality checked to
ensure that it has been manufactured to the strict specifications to which it was
submitted and approved for certification. This check includes an operational test
to ensure both satisfactory combustion and operation.
Fig. 20-1
Each installation site for this appliance presents its own unique combustion environment. Specific factors such as
weather-tightness of the home, size of the room in which the burner system is installed, central heating, ceiling
fans, altitude, drafts, pet hair, carpet lint, dryer lint, the size of the fireplace, paint or soot inside the fireplace, etc.
all have an influence on the proper operation of this appliance and its ODS pilot system. A normally operating
burner system will demonstrate the following characteristics:
• A lively, realistic flame. The flame will be blue/yellow.
• Clean-burning combustion that will produce no soot or smoke after normal break-in.
• Production of no odor, other than normal odors associated with the combustion of propane or natural gas.
• Production of water vapor. Water vapor helps to increase indoor humidity, which may be beneficial during the
dry heating season.
If you operate the burner system fueled by propane gas, operating characteristics may vary as the fuel in the
tank approaches empty (less than 1/4 full). Sooting and other increases in combustion by-products will occur.
Turn off the burner system and refill the propane tank.
CHECKING THE ODS PILOT FLAME APPEARANCE
WARNING: NO ADJUSTMENTS ARE TO BE MADE TO THE ODS PILOT SYSTEM. TAMPERING WITH THIS
SYSTEM CAN BE EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS.
When installing the burner assembly, it is important to visually check the ODS pilot flame and the burner flames.
1. The ODS pilot flame must be present when the burner is operating. The flame should touch the top of the
thermocouple tip (Fig. 20-2).
2. If the ODS pilot flame does not touch the top of the thermocouple tip, then the main burner will not function
properly (see Fig. 20-3 for incorrect ODS pilot flame).
3. With the burner off and the ODS pilot flame off, and the assembly cool, check the burner assembly, air intake
openings on the ODS pilot, and air shutter openings on the burner for any blockages that could affect the
operation of the ODS pilot flame.
