This also applies to the distance between the mantel
leg (if so fitted) and the fireplace. Refer to Fig. 4a and
Fig. 4b, and the Mantel Charts below for the correct
mounting height and widths.
The distances and reference points are not affected by
the fitting of a bay window front trim kit.

A hearth is not mandatory, but is recommended for
aesthetic purposes. We recommend using a
noncombustible hearth which projects out 12”
(305 mm) or more from the front of the fireplace.

When installing this unit against a
noninsulated exterior wall or chase,
it is mandatory that the outer walls be
insulated to conform to applicable
insulation codes.

Framing and Finishing
Final Finishing
Check fireplace to make sure it is
levelled and properly positioned.
1. Choose the unit location.
2. Place the unit into position and secure it to the floor
with 1.5” (38 mm) screws, or nails. The holes to
secure the unit to floor are located just behind the
access door grille on the left and right side of the
unit.
Noncombustible materials such as brick or tile may be
extended over the edges of the face of the appliance.
DO NOT cover the window frame assembly, any
vent, louvre assembly top or louvre assembly
bottom.
If a Trim Kit is going to be installed on the fireplace, the
brick or tile will have to be installed flush with the edges
of the appliance.
3. Frame in the fireplace with a header across the top.
It is important to allow for the finished wall face
when setting the depth of the frame.
4. Attach the fireplace to the frame using the adjustable
frame drywall strips (located behind the access
door for shipping). Preset the depth to suit the
facing material of the wall. The strips are adjustable
to 1/2” (13 mm), 5/8” (16 mm), or 3/4” (19 mm).
(Fig. 5)
5. Screw through the slotted holes in the drywall strip
and into predrilled holes in fireplace side. Measure
from face of fireplace to the face of the drywall strip to
confirm the final depth.

Gas Line Installation
When purging the gas lines, the front
glass must be removed.
The gas pipeline can be brought in through the side of
the fireplace as well as the bottom. Knockouts are
provided on the bottom behind the valve to allow for the
gas pipe installation and testing of any gas connection.
It is most convenient to bring the gas line in from the
rear right side of the valve as this allows fan installation
or removal without disconnecting the gas line.
The gas line connection can be made with properly
tinned 3/8” copper tubing, 3/8” rigid pipe or an approved flex connector. Since some municipalities have
additional local codes, it is always best to consult your
local authority and the CSA-B149.1 installation codes.
For USA installations consult the current National Fuel
Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1.
Remote ON/OFF Switch Installation
Do not wire the remote ON/OFF wall
switch for this gas appliance into a 120 V
power supply.
1. Thread the wiring through the electrical knockout
located on either side of the unit. Take care not to
cut the wire or insulation on metal edges. Ensure the
wire is secured and protected from possible damage. Run one end of the gas control valve and the
other end to the conveniently located wall switch.
2. Attach the wire to the ON/OFF switch and install the
switch into the receptacle box. Attach the cover plate
to the switch.
3. Connect the wire to the gas control valve (Fig. 7).

Always check for gas leaks with a mild
soap and water solution applied with a
brush no larger than 1” (25 mm). Never
apply soap and water solution with a
spray bottle. Do not use an open flame
for leak testing.
Alternate Switch Location
The remote switch can be installed on either side of the
access door. Mount the switch to the bracket provided
and screw the bracket to either side of the frame, using
the prepunched holes (Fig. 8).
Do not subject the fireplace valve to test
pressures exceeding 1/2 p.s.i. Isolate, or
disconnect this and any other gas
appliance control from the gas line when
pressure testing.
The gas control is equipped with a captured screw type
pressure test point; therefore, it is not necessary to
provide a 1/8" test point up stream of the control.
When using copper or flex connector use only approved fittings. Always provide a union when using
black iron pipe so that the gas line can be easily
disconnected for burner or fan servicing (Fig. 6). See
the gas specification for pressure details and ratings.

(508 mm)
When using Vermont Castings, Majestic Products
twist-lock pipe it is not necessary to use sealant on the
joints. The only areas of the venting system that need
to be sealed with high temperature silicone sealant
are the collars on the fireplace and termination, and
the sliding joint of any telescopic vent section used in
the system.
Top view flat installation
To join twist lock pipes together, simply align the beads
of the male end with the grooves of the female end,
twisting the pipe until the flange on the female end
contacts external flange on the male end. It is recommended that you secure the joints with three (3) sheet
metal screws, however this is not mandatory with twist
lock pipe (Fig. 14).
Max. 20"

Rear Wall Vent Application
When installed as a rear vent unit this appliance may
be vented directly to a termination located on the rear
wall behind the appliance
• Only Vermont Castings, Majestic Products venting components are approved to be used in these
applications (See Venting Components listed for
different installation requirements).
• The maximum horizontal distance between the rear
of the appliance (or end of the transition elbow in a
corner application) and the outside face of the rear
wall is 20” (508 mm) (Fig. 15).
• Only one 45˚ elbow is allowed in these installations.
• The minimum clearances between any combustible
material and the vent pipe sections are:
Top
2” (50 mm)
Sides
1” (25 mm)
Bottom 1” (25 mm)
12
For combustible walls first frame in opening (Fig. 16).
Combustible Walls: Cut a 10³⁄₈”H x 9³⁄₈” W (265 mm
x 240 mm) hole through the exterior wall and frame as
shown.
Noncombustible Walls: Hole opening should be 7¹⁄₂”
(190 mm) in diameter.
Zero clearance sleeve is only required
for combustible walls.
Step 2
Measure wall thickness, and cut zero clearance sleeve
to proper length; i.e., max. 12” (304.8 mm). Assemble
sleeve to its maximum opening (103⁄8” x 93⁄8”) and
attach to firestop with #8 sheet metal screws
(supplied). Install firestop assembly (Fig. 17).
Step 3
Measure the horizontal length requirement for the
venting including a 2” (50 mm) overlap, i.e. from the
elbow to the outside wall face plus 2” (50 mm)

the venting to the elbow.
It is critical that there is no downward
slope away from the appliance when
connecting the vent or elbow.
Step 5
Guide the venting through the vent hole as you place
the appliance in its installed position. Guide the 4”
(100 mm) and 7” (175 mm) collars of the vent
termination into the outer ends of the venting. Do not
force the termination. If the vent pipes do not align with
the termination remove and realign the venting at the
appliance flue collars (Fig. 18). Attach the termination
to the wall as outlined in the instruction sheet supplied
with the termination.

How To Use the Vent Graph
Vertical Sidewall Application
The Vent Graph should be read in conjunction with the
following vent installation instructions to determine the
relationship between the vertical and horizontal
dimensions of the vent system.
Since it is very important that the venting system
maintain its balance between the combustion air
intake and the flue gas exhaust, certain limitations
as to vent configurations apply and must be strictly
adhered to.
1. Determine the height of the center of the horizontal
vent pipe exiting through the outer wall. Using this
dimension on the Sidewall Vent Graph (Fig. 19), locate
the point intersecting with the slanted graph line.
2. From the point of this intersection, draw a vertical
line to the bottom of the graph.
3. Select the indicated dimension, and position the
fireplace in accordance with same.
Example A:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the fireplace is 11’ (3.4 m) the horizontal run to the face of
the outer wall must not exceed 14’ (4.3 m)
Example B:
If the vertical dimension from the floor of the unit is
7’ (2.14 m) the horizontal run to the face of the
outer wall must not exceed 8¹⁄₂’ (2.6 m)
The Vent Graph, showing the relationship between
vertical and horizontal side wall venting, will help to
determine the various dimensions allowable.
Minimum clearance between vent pipes and combustible materials is one 1” (25 mm) on top, bottom
and sides unless otherwise noted.
When vent termination exits through foundations less
than 20” (508 mm) below siding outcrop, the vent pipe
must flush up with the siding.
It is best to locate the fireplace a way that minimizes
the number of offsets and horizontal vent length.
The horizontal vent run refers to the total length of vent
pipe from the flue collar of the fireplace (or the top of
the Transition Elbow) to the face of the outer wall.
Horizontal plane means no vertical rise exists on this
portion of the vent assembly.

• If a 90˚ elbow is used in the horizontal vent run
(level height maintained), the maximum horizontal
vent length is reduced by 36” (914 mm) (Fig. 22).
This does not apply if the 90˚ elbows are used to
increase or redirect a vertical rise (Fig. 20).
Example: According to the vent graph (page 14), the
maximum horizontal vent length in a system with a
7.5’ (2.3 mm) vertical rise is 20’ (6 m), and if a 90˚
elbow is required in the horizontal vent, it must be
reduced to 17’ (5.2 m).
• The maximum number of 45˚ elbows permitted per
side wall installation is two (2). These elbows can
be installed in either the vertical or horizontal run.
• For each 45˚ elbow installed in the horizontal run,
the length of the horizontal run MUST be reduced
by 18” (45 cm). This does not apply if the 45˚
elbows are installed on the vertical part of the vent
system.
• The maximum number of elbow degrees in a
system is 270˚ (Fig. 23).

installing a second 90˚ elbow (Fig. 27).
Step 6
Use the appropriate length of pipe sections—telescopic
or fixed—and install. The sections which go through
the wall are packaged with the starter kit, and can be
cut to suit if necessary.
NOTE: Sealing vent pipe and firestop gaps with
high temperature sealant will restrict cold
air being drawn in around fireplace.

If installing a snorkel, a minimum 24” (610 mm) vertical
rise is necessary. The maximum horizontal run with the
24” (610 mm) vertical pipe is 36” (915 mm). This
measurement is taken from the collar of the fireplace
(or transition elbow) to the face of the exterior wall.
See the Sidewall Venting Graph for extended
horizontal run if the vertical exceeds 24” (610 mm).

2. Remove soil to a depth of approximately 16”
(406 mm) below base of snorkel. Install drain pipe.
Install window well (not supplied). Refill hole with
12” (305 mm) of coarse gravel leaving a clearance
of approximately 4” (100 mm) below snorkel
(Fig. 28).
3. Install vent system.
CFM137
Fig. 27 Horizontal length requirement.
Step 7
Apply high temperature sealant to 4” (100 mm) and 7”
(175 mm) collars or the termination one inch away from
crimped end. Guide the vent terminations 4” and 7”
collars into their respective vent pipes. Double check
that the vent pipes overlap the collars by 2” (50 mm).
Secure the termination to the wall with screws provided
and caulk around the wall plate to weatherproof.
As an alternative to screwing the termination directly to
the wall, you may also use expanding plugs or an
approved exterior construction adhesive. Or, you may
attach the termination with screws through the inner
body into the 4” vent pipe—however, for this method,
you must extend the 4” pipe approximately 6”
(150 mm) beyond the outer face of the wall.
4. Ensure a watertight seal is made around the vent
pipe coming through the wall.
5. Apply high temperature sealant caulking (supplied)
around the 4” and 7” snorkel collars.
6. Slide the snorkel into the vent pipes and secure to
the wall.

During start-up, it is normal for condensation to form
on the inside of the panel. This condensation causes
lint, dust and other airborne particles to cling to the
surface of the glass.
Also, initial paint curing may deposit a slight film on the
glass. It is therefore recommended the glass panel be
cleaned two or three times with a non-ammonia-based
household cleaner and warm water within the first few
weeks of operation. We recommend using gas
fireplace glass cleaner.
After the initial cleaning process, clean the glass two or
three times during each operating season, depending
on the environment in the house.
Clean the glass after the first two weeks
of operation.
Do not clean glass when it is hot.
Do not use abrasive cleaners.
Do not strike or slam the glass.

Flame Characteristics
Inspecting the Venting System
It is important to periodically perform a visual check of
the pilot and burner flames. Compare them to the
pictorials illustrated below (Fig. 43 and Fig. 44). If the
flame patterns appear abnormal, contact a qualified
service provider for service and adjustment.
3/8”
– 1/2”
This appliance venting system is designed and
constructed to develop a positive flow adequate to
remove flow gases to the outside atmosphere.
Any foreign objects in the venting system, except those
designed specifically for the venting system, may
cause spillage of flue gases.
To inspect the venting system, make sure the main
gas valve is off. Remove the window frame assembly
(Refer to Window Frame Assembly Removal section).

Troubleshooting the Gas Control System
SIT NOVA 820 MILLIVOLT VALVE
Note: Before trouble shooting the gas control system, be sure external gas shut off is in the “On” position.
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.
10004920
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 des not
light, check gap at electrode and pilot; it 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;
millivolt 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 across 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
General
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.
FK24/FK12 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.
The burner and control system consists of:
• burner tube
• gas orifice
• pilot assembly
• thermopile
• 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.
1. Turn off pilot light at gas valve side.
2. Let fireplace cool if it has been running.
3. Remove window frame assembly. (Refer to
Window Frame Assembly Removal section)
4. Remove logs.
5. Vacuum burner compartment especially around
orifice primary air openings.
6. Visually inspect pilot. Brush or blow away any dust
or lint accumulation.
7. Reinstall logs.
8. Ignite pilot; refer to Lighting Instructions.
9. Reinstall window frame assembly.
To obtain proper operation, it is imperative that the
pilot and burner’s flame characteristics are steady, not
lifting or floating.
Typically, the top 3/8” or 1/2” of the thermopile should
be engulfed in the pilot flame (Fig. 45, page 25).
To adjust pilot burner (to be done by a qualified
service technician):
1. Remove pilot adjustment cap.
2. Adjust pilot screw to provide properly sized flame.
3. Replace pilot adjustment cap.
The primary air shutter is set at factory and should be
adjusted, if necessary, only by a qualified service
technician.
