Fireplace Placement Requirements
¥
¥
¥
Fireplace must be installed on a level surface capable of supporting the fireplace and vent
Fireplace must be placed directly on wood or non-combustible surface (not on linoleum or carpet)
Due to the high temperature of the fireplace, it should be located out of traffic and away from
furniture and draperies.
Clearances
¥
¥
¥
When installed, walls in front of the fireplace must be a minimum 4-1/2" to the side of the faceplate.
Fireplace must be placed so that no combustibles are within, or can swing within 36" of the front of
the fireplace (e.g. drapes, doors)
Fireplace must be placed so the vents below and above the glass do not become blocked
Minimum Framing Dimensions
¥
The fireplace has 1/2" stand-offs on the back and sides of the fireplace and 6-1/4" stand-offs on the
top. They are designed to space the fireplace away from framing members or walls. These standoffs may contact the framing members or walls but no material may be placed between the standoffs.

!
¥
¥
Always maintain the required 1" clearance (air space) to combustible materials to prevent a fire
hazard. Do not fill air spaces with insulation.
The gas appliance and vent system must be vented directly to the outside of the building, and never
be attached to a chimney serving a separate solid fuel or gas-burning appliance. Each direct vent gas
appliance must use it's own separate vent system.
If the fireplace is
installed at an altitude
over 3,000 feet the flame
quality will need to be
carefully evaluated. See
Addendum #1, "Altitude
Considerations", on page
39.
When the vent passes
through a wall, a wall
thimble is required.
When the vent passes
through a ceiling, a
support box or firestop is
required. When the vent
passes through the roof,
a roof flashing and storm
collar are required.
Follow the instructions
provided with the vent
(from Dura-Vent) for
installing these items.

Approved Vent Configurations
Restrictor Position
¥
A vent restrictor is built into the appliance to adjust the flow rate of exhaust gases. This insures
proper flames for the wide variety of vent configurations. The restrictor consists of a butterfly valve
below the starter section of pipe and an adjustment plate with index holes used to hold the valve in a
fixed position. Depending upon the vent configuration, you may be required to adjust the restrictor
position. The charts for acceptable vent configurations describe which position the vent restrictor
must be in.
To Access the Restrictor:
To Adjust the Restrictor:
1 Determine the correct restrictor
position (see the
charts under "Approved Vent
Configurations" - the stock
position is #1).
2 Remove the screw with a 1/4"
nutdriver (or screwdriver).
3 Rotate the adjustment plate
clockwise until the correct index
hole is above the pivot point.
4 Insert the screw into the correct
index hole and tighten.
The eleven holes on the
restrictor plate correspond to
the eleven restrictor positions.

INSTALLATION (CONT.) - For Qualified Installers Only!
Gas Line Requirements
!
!
!
The gas line must be installed in accordance with all local codes, if any; if not, follow ANSI 223.1
and the requirements listed below.
The fireplace and gas control valve must be disconnected from the gas supply piping during any
pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psig. For pressures under 1/2 psig,
isolate the gas supply piping by closing the manual shutoff valve.
Leak test all gas line joints and the gas control valve prior to and after starting the fireplace.
Fuel
¥
This fireplace is designed either for natural gas or for propane (but not for both). Check the sticker
on the top of the gas control valve to make sure the correct fuel is used.
Gas Line Connection
¥
¥
¥
The gas inlet accepts a 3/8" M.P.T. or 1/2" F.P.T.
A manual shutoff valve is required (it may be installed behind the access door inside the fireplace)
The location of the gas inlet is shown on page 21.
Gas Inlet Pressure:
¥
¥
Standard Input Pressure
Natural Gas
7" W.C. (1.74 kPA)
Propane
11" W.C. (2.73 kPA)
If the pressure is not sufficient, make sure the piping used is large enough, the supply regulator is
adequately adjusted, and the total gas load for the residence does not exceed the amount supplied.
The supply regulator (the regulator that attaches directly to the residence inlet or to the propane tank)
should supply gas at the suggested input pressure listed above. Contact the local gas supplier if the
regulator is at an improper pressure.
Electrical Connection
!
!
¥
Make sure the household breaker is shut off prior to working on any electrical lines.
The fireplace must be properly grounded in accordance with local codes (or ANSI/NFPA 70-1987)
The electrical line must be 14 gauge, and supply 120 Volts at 60 Hz (2 Amps)
Feed the electrical line
through the strain
relief.
Use wire nuts to connect the wires together. Push the
connections inside the junction box, and re-attach the cover
plate. Tighten the strain relief on to the outer insulation of the
electrical line to insure the line does not pull loose.
The junction box is located
in the right rear corner of
the fireplace. Remove the
junction box cover plate to
access the wires (use a
standard screwdriver).
Run an electrical line to
a location at the right
rear of the fireplace
1 Remove the junction box cover at the right rear corner of the fireplace near the base.
2 Feed the electrical line through the strain relief (use insulated Romex () type wire).
3 Remove the wires from the junction box. Expose approximately 1/2" of metal wire from each line of
the electrical line. Use the wire nuts (included in the owner's pack inside the firebox) to secure the
wires together. Connect the green wire to the ground wire (usually green), the white wire to the
common wire (usually white), and black wire to the hot wire (usually black).
4 Push the wire connections into the junction box. Replace the cover plate.
5 Tighten the strain relief on to the outer insulation of the electrical line to secure.

ACID WASH WARNING: Before installing the faceplate, make sure any masonry that has been
treated with acid wash has been properly neutralized (this is used primarily with brick faces). Acid
wash (muriatic acid) is used to remove excess mortar. If not properly neutralized with an ammonia
solution, the gold face may develop a permanent tarnish when the acid evaporates over time.
Contact your dealer if uncertain your facing has been properly neutralized.

10 Let the heater burn for fifteen minutes. Adjust the air shutter, if necessary, to achieve the correct
looking flame (see the illustration below).
¥ The air shutter adjusts the amount of air that mixes with the gas before it exits the burner holes.
It is used to fine-tune the flame for differences in altitude and vent configuration.
Locate the air shutter adjustment
lever behind the gas control valve.
Move it up or down until the flame
looks correct. Pushing up gives the
flame more air (making it bluer).
Pulling it down cuts air down,

MAINTENANCE
PAGE 31
Maintaining Your Fireplace's Appearance
!
Fingerprints or other marks left on the optional gold surface may become etched in place if they are
not wiped clean prior to turning the stove on. Clean the gold with denatured alcohol and a soft cloth.
Use denatured alcohol and a soft cloth to clean gold surfaces (make sure the fireplace is cool). Other
cleaners may leave a film that may become etched into the gold.
¥
Yearly Service Procedure
!
Failure to inspect and maintain the fireplace may lead to improper combustion and a potentially
dangerous situation. We recommend the following procedures be done by a qualified technician.
1 Check the pilot flame. It should engulf approximately 3/8" of the top of the thermopile and engulf
the top of the thermocouple (see illustration below). If it does not, contact your dealer for service.
2 Shut off gas to the fireplace by turning the gas control knob to "OFF" (see step A under "Starting the
Pilot" on page 28). Let the fireplace cool for 15 minutes. Remove the faceplate (see page 24 & 25)
and glass (see page 20).
3 Remove the log set (NOTE: the logs are very fragile - see page 23). If any log is cracked or
deteriorated, replace it when re-installing. Check the logs for sooting. A small amount of soot along
the bottom of the logs is normal. If excessive sooting is found, the fireplace will require adjustment.
Contact your dealer.
4 Clean the burner pan (especially in the burner holes and slots) and inspect the following:
¥ Check for burner pan holes that are cracked, severely warped, or corroded.
¥ Make sure the burner pan assembly fits flat against the floor of the firebox.
¥ Check the firebox and area around the pilot to make sure there is no warping or damage.
If any problem is found, discontinue use and contact your dealer for service.
Before Disassembly: Check the pilot flame. It should
impinge the top 3/8Ó of the thermopile and engulf the
thermocouple.
Check the walls and
ceiling of the firebox
for deterioration.

Replace the log set. Replace the glass (if the glass is damaged, replace it). Make sure the gasket
along the perimeter of the glass contacts the face of the firebox and forms an air-tight seal. If it does
not, re-align or replace the gasket to insure an air-tight seal. Replace the faceplate.
Inspect the area behind the access door. Check the gas control valve and all of the gas lines. If any
damage is found, discontinue use and contact your dealer for service.
Start the pilot and turn on the main burner. The flames should be orange/yellow and not touch the
top of the firebox. If the pilot or main burners do not burn correctly, contact your dealer for service.
Monitor the blower operation.
Remove any debris or vegetation near the vent termination. Contact your dealer if any sooting or
deterioration is found near the vent termination.

How this Fireplace Works
!
This fireplace was designed with safety as the primary concern. Many of the components inside this
fireplace are for safety purposes. Therefore, only certified gas service technicians should service this
fireplace.

MAIN BURNER
This fireplace uses a millivolt system to control its operation (a millivolt is a very small amount of
electricity). The thermopile and thermocouple generate electricity when heated by the pilot flame.
This electricity is used to operate the gas valve. Without enough electricity, the gas valve will not
turn on. That is why when starting the pilot the gas control knob has to be pressed in long enough
for the thermocouple to heat up and generate enough electricity. The thermopile provides power for
the ON/OFF switch, remote control, or thermostat (see the illustration below). Because the
thermopile generates the electricity needed to turn the fireplace on and off, this fireplace can be
operated when the power is out (although the blower will not run).
ON
OFF
What Prevents Gas Buildup
+ This appliance utilizes a high-technology gas valve in conjunction with a pilot flame to ensure no
gas builds up inside the firebox.
+ The thermocouple (next to the pilot) senses when the pilot flame is lit. If the pilot flame goes out,
this thermocouple no longer generates electricity, causing the gas valve to automatically shut off all
gas to the heater, preventing the pilot from spilling gas into the firebox.

Pilot Flame
The pilot flame is a time-proven
component that eliminates the possibility

Gas Valve
This high-technology valve automatically
shuts off all gas if it does not receive a signal
from the thermocouple. If any component is
damged or sensing a malfunction, or if the
wiring is damaged, it will shut off all gas.

Thermocouple
The thermocouple generates a small

External Shut Off Valve
This valve is placed on the gas line
to shut off gas to the appliance
during maintenance procedures.
Ceramic Glass
The glass in your heater is the most
durable glass available. It has been
tested to be extremely resistant to
breakage and temperature changes.

Thermostat (Part # 99300650)
! Do not connect 120 VAC to the gas control valve or wiring of this unit.
+ It is easiest to route the remote control wire prior to installing the fireplace. Route the wire to a
location near the gas inlet. Allow 3' of wire for hookup inside the fireplace.
1 Attach the thermostat wire and route through the gas inlet hole (see the illustration below). Pull
through all the slack (you may wish to wrap the wire in electrical tape to prevent damaging the wire).

Determine a location for the thermostat that is within range of the 50' length of thermostat wire. It
should be centralized in the room and away from the heater. The wire may be routed externally on
the wall or behind the wall (preferred).
Cut the thermostat wire so there is approximately 6" of slack (NOTE: Do not splice thermostat wires
togetherÐthis leads to too much electrical resistance). Expose 1/2" off each wire of the thermostat
wire. Attach the exposed wire to the clips on the back of the thermostat using a screwdriver.
Expose 1/2" of
wire and attach
to the two
connections on
the back of the
thermostat (use a
screwdriver).
Orientation does
not matter.

Decorative Firebacks - 36DV-A Only (Classic Fireback Part # 98500735, Brick Fireback Part # 98500736)
The decorative cast firebacks come in two different styles and attach to the walls of the firebox to
enhance the aesthetic quality of the fireplace. The directions below detail their installation.
! Turn the gas control valve to "OFF" prior to conducting any service.
1 The faceplate, glass, and log set must be removed prior to installing the decorative firebacks. See
pages 24/25, 20, and 23 for instructions.
2 Use a 5/16" nutdriver to remove the nine screws shown in the illustration below (the screws included
with the kit screw into these holes).
3 Line up the holes in the plates with the corresponding holes in the firebox walls. The side plates are
marked "Left" and "Right" on the back to differentiate the two sides. Insert the screws included with
the kit through the plates and into the walls of the firebox to secure the plates in place.
Fireplace with faceplate,
glass, and log set removed
Remove the nine
screws on the walls of
the firebox shown in
this illustration. Place
the fireback plates
against the walls of the
firebox so the holes in
the plates line up with
the holes in the
firebox. Insert the
screws included with
the fireback kit to
secure the plates in
place (use a flat head
screwdriver).
ADDENDUM
Altitude Considerations
This fireplace has been tested at altitudes ranging from sea level to 8,000 feet. In this testing we have
found that the fireplace, with its standard orifice, burns correctly with just an air shutter adjustment. For
information on adjusting the air shutter see page 26 of this manual.
! Failure to adjust the air shutter properly may lead to improper combustion which can create a
safety hazard. Please consult your dealer or installer if you suspect an improperly adjusted air
shutter.
