Failure to follow instructions may result in property damage, bodily injury or even death. Be aware that local Codes and Regulations may override some items in this manual. Check with your local inspector. 2) THE APPLIANCE AND FLUE-SYSTEM SHALL BE INSTALLED IN ACCORDANCE WITH AS/NZS 2918:2001 AND THE APPROPRIATE REQUIREMENTS OF THE RELEVANT BUILDING CODE OR CODES. APPLIANCES INSTALLED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS STANDARD SHALL COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF AS/NZS 4013 WHERE REQUIRED BY THE REGULATORY AUTHORITY. ANY MODIFICATION OF THE APPLIANCE THAT HAS NOT BEEN APPROVED IN WRITING BY THE TESTING AUTHORITY IS CONSIDERED TO BE IN BREACH OF THE APPROVAL GRANTED FOR COMPLIANCE WITH AS/NZS 4013. CAUTION: MIXING OF APPLIANCE OR FLUE-SYSTEM COMPONENTS FROM DIFFERENT SOURCES OR MODIFYING THE DIMENSIONAL SPECIFICATION OF COMPONENTS MAY RESULT IN HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS. WHERE SUCH ACTION IS CONSIDERED, THE MANUFACTURER SHOULD BE CONSULTED IN THE FIRST INSTANCE. 3) Select a position for your Regency Stove. Consult the minimum clearance chart for your model and set the stove in place. For close clearance installation use listed double wall connector systems. 4) To insure vertical alignment, suspend a plumb bob from the ceiling over the exact center of your stove flue and mark a spot on the ceiling to indicate the center of the chimney. 5) Check that the area above the ceiling is clear for cutting. Re-confirm the clearance from the stove to combustibles to insure that they are within the prescribed limits. 6) Mark the location of the pedestal base on the floor, then move the stove aside and mark the position of the floor protector. 7) Install chimney according to chimney manufacturers instructions. The performance of your wood fire is governed to a very large part by the chimney system. Too short a chimney can cause difficult start-up, dirty glass, backsmoking when door is open, and 6 even reduced heat output. Too tall a chimney may prompt excessive draft which can result in very short burn times and excessive heat output. 8) The floor protector must be of non-combustible material. Refer to page 7 for floor protector clearances. 9) When the floor protection is complete, position the stove with the flue collar centered under the installed chimney. 10) In seismically active areas, Regency recommends that your unit is secured to the floor by using the bolt down holes inside the pedestal. 11) Do not connect this unit to a chimney serving another appliance. SAFETY GUIDELINES AND WARNINGS 1) Never use petrol, petrol type lantern fuels, kerosene, charcoal lighter fuel, or similar liquids to start or ‘freshen up’ a fire in your heater. Keep all such liquids well away from the heater while it is in use. 9) Do not connect this unit to a chimney flue serving another appliance. 10) Do not use grates or andirons or other methods for supporting fuel. Burn directly on the base or bricks where supplied. 11) Open the draft control fully for 10 to 15 seconds prior to slowly opening the door when refuelling the fire. 12) Do not connect your unit to any air distribution duct. 13) Your wood fire should burn dry, standard firewood only. The use of cut timber, plywood, “mill ends”, etc. is not allowed as this fuel can easily overheat your wood fire. Evidence of excessive overheating will void your warranty. As well, a large portion of sawmill waste is chemically treated timber, which is illegal to burn in many areas. Salt drift wood and chemically treated fire logs also must not be burned in your wood fire. 14) No combustible material should be closer than the clearances as specified on page 7. 15) DO NOT OPERATE WITH BROKEN GLASS. 2) Keep the door closed during operation and maintain all seals in good condition. BRICK INSTALLATION 3) Do not burn any quantities of paper, garbage, and never burn flammable fluids such as petrol, naptha or engine oil in your stove. Firebrick comes installed in each stove and is made to extend the life of your stove and to radiate heat more evenly. 4) If you have smoke detectors, prevent smoke spillage as this may set off a false alarm. Important: Remove the packing material from above and below the top bricks. Check to see that all firebricks are in their correct positions and have not become misaligned during shipping. 5) Do not overfire heater. If the chimney connector, flue baffle or the stove top begin to glow, you are overfiring. Stop adding fuel and close the draft control. Overfiring can cause extensive damage to your stove including warpage and premature steel corrosion. Overfiring will void your warranty. 6) Do not permit creosote or soot build-up in the chimney system. Check and clean chimney at regular intervals. Failure to do so can result in a serious chimney fire. 7) Your Regency stove can be very hot. You may be seriously burned if you touch the stove while it is operating, keep children, clothing and furniture away. Warn children of the burn hazard. For safety reasons a guard around the fire is recommended. 8) The stove consumes air while operating, provide adequate ventilation with an air duct or open a window while the stove is in use.

Regency Narrabri™ Freestanding Wood Fire 7 OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS With your unit now correctly installed and safety inspected by your local authority, you are now ready to start a fire. Before establishing your first fire, it is important that you fully understand the operation of your draft control. AIR SLIDE CONTROL FIRST FIRE Both the primary and air wash drafts are controlled by the control rod located on the right side of the unit (when facing the unit). To increase your draft - pull open, and to decrease - push closed. All units have a secondary draft system that continually allows combustion air to the induction ports at the top of the firebox, just below the flue baffle. When your installation is completed and inspected you are ready for your first fire. CAUTION: THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE MAINTAINED AND OPERATED AT ALL TIMES IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE INSTRUCTIONS. CAUTION: THE USE OF SOME TYPES OF PRESERVATIVE-TREATED WOOD AS A FUEL CAN BE HAZARDOUS. Push - Closed WARNING: ANY MODIFICATION OF THE APPLIANCE THAT HAS NOT BEEN APPROVED IN WRITING BY THE TESTING AUTHORITY IS CONSIDERED AS BREACHING AS/NZS 4013. Pull - Open For safety reasons and in order to avoid over firing of your unit do not burn your fire with the door open or ajar. CAUTION: Never leave unit unattended if door is left open. This procedure is for fire start-up only, as unit may overheat if door is left open for too long. 4) After about 45 minutes, when your wood has begun to burn strongly, adjust your draft control down to keep the fire at a moderate level. WARNING: Never build a roaring fire in a cold stove. Always warm your stove up slowly! WARNING: DO NOT STORE FUEL WITHIN HEATER INSTALLATION CLEARANCES. WARNING: OPEN AIR CONTROL (AND DAMPER WHEN FITTED) BEFORE OPENING FIRING DOOR. 2) Open firebox door and build a small fire using paper and dry kindling on the firebox base. Secure door on the firebox and wait a few minutes for a good updraft in the flue to establish the fire. (Leaving the door slightly open will help your fire start more rapidly.) 3) With the draft still in the fully open position add two or three seasoned logs to your fire. Form a trench in the ash bed to allow air to reach the rear of the firebox prior to closing the door. WARNING: DO NOT USE FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS OR AEROSOLS TO START OR REKINDLE THE FIRE. WARNING: DO NOT USE FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS OR AEROSOLS IN THE VICINITY OF THIS APPLIANCE WHEN IT IS OPERATING. 1) Open control fully. WARNING: To build a fire in ignorance or to disregard the information contained in this section can cause serious permanent damage to the unit and void your warranty!! 5) Once a bed of coals has been established on the base of the firebox, you may adjust the draft control to a low setting to operate the unit at its most efficient mode. 6) During the first few fires, keep the combustion rate at a moderate level and avoid a large fire. Only after 5 or 6 such fires can you operate the stove at its maximum setting, and only after the metal has been warmed. 7) For the first few days, the stove will give off an odour from the paint. This is to be expected as the high temperature paint becomes seasoned. Windows and/or doors should be left open to provide adequate ventilation while this temporary condition exists. Burning the stove at a very high temperature the first few times may damage the paint. Burn fires at a moderate level the first few days. 8) Do not place anything on the stove top during the curing process. This may result in damage to your paint finish. 8 Regency Narrabri™ Freestanding Wood Fire MAINTENANCE 9) During the first few days it may be more difficult to start the fire. As you dry out your firebrick and your masonry flue, your draft will increase. 10) For those units installed at higher elevations or into sub-standard masonry fireplaces, drafting problems may occur. Consult an experienced dealer or mason on methods of increasing your draft. 11) Some cracking and popping noises may be experienced during the heating up process. These noises will be minimal when your unit reaches temperature. 12) Before opening your door to reload, open draft fully for approximately 10 to 15 seconds until fire has been re-established. This will minimize any smoking. 13) All fuel burning appliances consume oxygen during operation. It is important that you supply a source of fresh air to your unit while burning. A slightly opened window is sufficient for the purpose. If you also have a fireplace in your home, a downdraft may be created by your Regency Stove causing a draft down your chimney. If this occurs, slightly open a window near your unit. CAUTION: If the body of your unit, flue baffle or any part of the chimney connector starts to glow, you are overfiring. Stop loading fuel immediately and close the draft control until the glow has completely subsided. 14) Green or wet wood is not recommended for your unit. If you must add wet or green fuel, open the draft control fully until all moisture has been dispersed by the intense fire. Once all moisture has been removed, the draft control may be adjusted to maintain the fire. 15) If you have been burning your stove on a low draft, use caution when opening the door. After opening the damper, open the door a crack, and allow the fire to adjust before fully opening the door. 16) The controls of your unit or the air supply passages should not be altered to increase firing for any reason. 17) If you burn the unit too slowly or at too low a setting your unit will not be operating as efficiently as it can. An easy rule of thumb says that if your glass is clean, then your flue is clean and your exhaust is clean. Burn the stove hot enough to keep your glass clean and you won't need to clean your flue as often. CREOSOTE MAINTENANCE When wood is burned slowly, it produces tar and other organic vapours, which when combined with moisture, form creosote. The creosote vapours condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slow burning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining. When ignited, this creosote can result in an extremely hot fire. It is very important to carefully maintain your fireplace stove, including burning seasoned wood and maintaining a clean stove and chimney system. Have the chimney cleaned before the burning season and as necessary during the season, as creosote deposits may build up rapidly. Moving parts of your stove require no lubrication. WARNING: Things to remember in case of a chimney fire: GLASS MAINTENANCE 1. Close all draft and damper controls. 2. CALL THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. Ways to Prevent and Keep Unit Free of Creosote 1) Burn stove with the draft control wide open for about 10-15 minutes every morning during burning season. Your Regency stove is supplied with 5 mm Neoceram ceramic glass that will withstand the highest heat that your unit will produce. In the event that you break your glass by impact, purchase your replacement from an authorized Regency dealer only, and follow our step-by-step instructions for replacement. Allow the stove to cool down before cleaning the glass, do not clean the glass when it is hot. Do not use abrasive cleaners. 2) Burn stove with draft control wide open for about 10 - 15 minutes every time you apply fresh wood. This allows the wood to achieve the charcoal stage faster and burns up any unburned gas vapours which might otherwise be deposited within the system. 3) Only burn seasoned wood! Avoid burning wet or green wood. Seasoned wood has been dried at least one year. 4) A small hot fire is preferable to a large smouldering one that can deposit creosote within the system. 5) The chimney and chimney connector should be inspected at least once every two months during the heating season to determine is a creosote buildup has occured. 6) Have chimney system and unit cleaned by competent chimney sweeps twice a year during the first year of use and at least once a year thereafter or when a significant layer of creosote has accumulated (3 mm/1/8" or more) it should be removed to reduce the risk of a chimney fire. WOOD STORAGE DOOR LATCH ADJUSTMENT The door latch may require adjustment as the door gasket material compresses over time. Follow the steps below to allow the latch to be moved closer to the door frame, causing a tighter seal; 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) Unscrew latching sleeve. Remove allen screw. Spin door handle clockwise to desired depth. Re-install allen screw and latching sleeve. Adjust set screw to proper depth to ensure that the handle does not rotate 360 degrees. Allen Screw Set Screw Latching Sleeve Store wood under cover, such as in a shed, or covered with a tarp, plastic, tar paper, sheets of scrap plywood, etc., as uncovered wood can absorb water from rain or snow, delaying the seasoning process.
