sulation. If the appliance is being installed on a cement
slab, a layer of plywood may be placed underneath to prevent conducting cold up into the room.
B. Constructing the Appliance Chase
A chase is a vertical boxlike structure built to enclose the
gas appliance and/or its vent system. Vertical vents that
run on the outside of a building may be, but are not required to be, installed inside a chase.
C. Clearances
Construction of the chase may vary with the type of building. These instructions are not substitutes for the requirements of local building codes. Local building codes MUST
be checked.
WARNING
Fire Risk.
Odor Risk.
• Install appliance on hard metal or wood surfaces
extending full width and depth of appliance.
• Do NOT install appliance directly on carpeting,
vinyl, tile or any combustible material other than
wood.
Chases should be constructed in the manner of all outside walls of the home to prevent cold air drafting problems. The chase should not break the outside building
envelope in any manner.
Walls, ceiling, base plate and cantilever floor of the chase
should be insulated. Vapor and air infiltration barriers
should be installed in the chase as per regional codes for
the rest of the home. Additionally, in regions where cold
air infiltration may be an issue, the inside surfaces may be
sheetrocked and taped for maximum air tightness.
WARNING
Fire Risk.
• Construct chase to all clearance specifications
in manual.
• Locate and install appliance to all clearance
specifications in manual.
To further prevent drafts, the wall shield and ceiling firestops should be caulked with high temperature caulk to
seal gaps. Gas line holes and other openings should be
caulked with high temp caulk or stuffed with unfaced in-

Horizontal
Figure 5.1
C. Measuring Standards
Vertical and horizontal measurements listed in the vent
diagrams were made using the following standards.
• Pipe measurements are shown using the effective length
of pipe (see Figure 5.2).
• Horizontal terminations are measured to the outside
mounting surface (flange of termination cap) (see Figure
4.1).
B. Use of Elbows
• Vertical terminations are measured to bottom of termination cap.
CAUTION
ALL vent configuration specifications MUST be followed.
• This product is tested and listed to these specifications.
• Appliance performance will suffer if specifications are not
followed.
Diagonal runs have both vertical and horizontal vent
aspects when calculating the effects. Use the rise for the
vertical aspect and the run for the horizontal aspect (see
Figure 5.1).
• Horizontal pipe installed level with no rise.
Pipe
Effective
Height/Length
Two 45º elbows may be used in place of one 90º elbow.
On 45º runs, one foot of diagonal is equal to 8-1/2 inches
horizontal run and 8-1/2 inches vertical run. A length of
straight pipe is allowed between two 45º elbows (see
Figure 5.1).

D. Use of Flex Vent
The flex vent must be supported with
the spacing between support intervals
not exceeding 4 feet, with no more
than 1/2 inch sag between supports.
A support is required at each change
in venting direction, and in any location
where it is necessary to maintain the
necessary clearance to combustibles.
A simple “up and out” installation (Figure 5.3) requires only enough support
to maintain the necessary clearance
to combustibles. However, the vent attachment point and the firestop location are considered to be supports.

C. After Appliance is Lit
CAUTION
Initial Break-in Procedure
When you light the appliance, you may notice that it produces heat which does have an associated odor or smell.
If you feel this odor is excessive it may require the initial
three to four hour continuous burn on high followed by a
second burn up to 12 hours to fully drive off any odor from
paint and lubricants used in the manufacturing process.
Condensation of the glass is normal.
NOTE: The appliance should be run three to four hours
on the initial start-up. Turn it off and let it cool completely.
Remove and clean the glass. Replace the glass and run
the appliance for an additional 12 hours. This will help to
cure the products used in the paint and logs.
During this break-in period it is recommended that some
windows in the house be opened for air circulation. This will
help avoid setting off smoke detectors, and help eliminate any
odors associated with the appliance’s initial burning.
• Prevent accidental appliance operation when not
attended.
• Unplug or remove batteries from remote control if absent
or if appliance will not be used for an extended period of
time.
• Property damage possible from elevated temperatures.
CAUTION
Smoke and odors released during initial operation.
• Open windows for air circulation.
• Leave room during initial operation.
• Smoke may set off smoke detectors.
Smoke and odors may be irritating to sensitive
individuals.

D. Frequently Asked Questions
ISSUE
SOLUTIONS
Condensation on the glass
This is a result of gas combustion and temperature variations. As the appliance warms, this
condensation will disappear.
Blue flames
This is a result of normal operation and the flames will begin to yellow as the appliance is allowed to burn for 20 to 40 minutes.
Odor from appliance
When first operated, this appliance may release an odor for the first several hours. This is
caused by the curing of the paint and the burning off of any oils remaining from manufacturing. Odor may also be released from finishing materials and adhesives used around the
appliance.
Film on the glass
Metallic noise
This is a normal result of the curing process of the paint and logs. Glass should be cleaned
within 3 to 4 hours of initial burning to remove deposits left by oils from the manufacturing
process. A non-abrasive cleaner such as gas fireplace glass cleaner may be necessary. See
your dealer.
Noise is caused by metal expanding and contracting as it heats up and cools down, similar to
the sound produced by a furnace or heating duct. This noise does not affect the operation or
longevity of the appliance.
Is it normal to see the pilot flame burn In an Intellifire ignition system it is normal to see the pilot flame, but it should turn off when
continually?
ON/OFF is turned off. In a standing pilot system the pilot will always stay on.

Troubleshooting
With proper installation, operation, and maintenance your gas appliance will provide years of trouble-free service. If you do
experience a problem, this troubleshooting guide will assist a qualified service person in the diagnosis of a problem and the
corrective action to be taken. This troubleshooting guide can only be used by a qualified service technician.
A. Standing Pilot Ignition System
Symptom
Possible Causes
Corrective Action
1. After repeated triggering a. Defective ignitor.
of the red or black piezo
ignitor button, the spark
ignitor will not light the pilot. b. Defective pilot or misaligned
electrode (spark at electrode).
Check the spark at the electrode and pilot. If no spark and electrode
wire is properly connected, replace the ignitor.
c. No gas or low gas pressure.
Check the remote shut-off valves from the fireplace. Usually, there
is a valve near the gas main. There can be more than one (1) valve
between the fireplace and the main.
d. No LP in tank.
Check the LP (propane) tank. You may be out of fuel.
a. Defective thermocouple.
Check that the pilot flame impinges on the thermocouple. Clean
and/or adjust the pilot for maximum flame impingement.
2. The pilot will not stay lit
after carefully following the
lighting instructions.
Using match, light the pilot. If the pilot lights, turn off the pilot and
trigger the red piezo ignitor button again. If the pilot lights, an improper gas/air mixture caused the bad lighting and a longer purge
period is recommended. If the pilot will not light, ensure the gap
at the electrode and pilot is one-eighth (1/8) inch to have a strong
spark. If the gap is OK, replace the pilot.
Ensure that the thermocouple connection at the gas valve is fully
inserted and tight (hand tighten plus 1/4 turn).
Disconnect the thermocouple from the valve, place one millivolt
meter lead wire on the tip of the thermcouple and the other meter
lead wire on the thermocouple copper lead. Start the pilot and hold
the valve knob in. If the millivolt reading is less than 15mV, replace
the thermocouple.
b. Defective valve.
3. The pilot is burning,
a. ON/OFF switch or wires

the valve knob is in the ON
position, and the ON/OFF
switch is in the ON position.
If the thermocouple is producing more than 15 millivolts, replace
faulty valve.
Check the ON/OFF switch and wires for proper connections. Place
the jumper wires across the terminals at the switch. If the burner
comes on, replace the defective switch. If the switch is OK, place the
jumper wires across the switch wires at the gas valve. If the burner
comes on, the wires are faulty or connections are bad.
b. Thermopile may not be gener- If the pilot flame is not close enough physically to the thermopile,
ating sufficient millivoltage.
adjust the pilot flame.
Be sure the wire connections from the thermopile at the gas valve
terminals are tight and that the thermopile is fully inserted into the
pilot bracket.
Check the thermopile with a millivolt meter. Take the reading at
TH-TP&TP terminals of the gas valve. The meter should read 325
millivolts minimum, while holding the valve knob depressed in the
pilot position, with the pilot lit, and the ON/OFF switch in the OFF
position. Replace the faulty thermopile if the reading is below the
specified minimum.
With the pilot in the ON position, disconnect the thermopile leads
from the valve. Take a reading at the thermopile leads. The reading should be 325 millivolts minimum. Replace the thermopile if the
reading is below the minimum.
