INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS The gas fireplace is shipped with a 3/8” tube OD (male) connection. The gas supply piping should have a separate gas shutoff valve and a 1/8” NPT plugged tapping upstream of the valve. The stove and its main control 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 psi (3.5 kPa). The stove must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing the main control valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa). After the gas supply has been connected, use a commercial gas leak detector or apply a soapy water solution to all the fittings to check for gas leaks. Never use a flame to test for leaks.

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS This product must be installed by a licensed plumber or gas fitter when installed within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. If this appliance is installed in a dwelling, building or structure used in whole or in part for residential purposes and the installation includes a horizontal vent termination that is less than seven (7) feet above the finished grade in the area of the venting, including but not limited to decks and porches, a hard-wired carbon monoxide detector with an alarm and battery back-up must be installed on the floor level of the dwelling, building or structure where the appliance is to be installed. Additionally, a hard-wired or battery operated carbon monoxide detector with an alarm must be installed on each additional level of the dwelling, building or structure served by the appliance. It shall be the responsibility of the property owner to secure the services of qualified licensed professionals for the installation of hard-wired carbon monoxide detectors. In the event that the horizontally vented appliance is installed in a crawl space or attic, the hardwired carbon monoxide detector with alarm and battery back-up may be installed on the next adjacent floor level. In the event that this requirement cannot be met at the time of completion of the installation of the appliance, the owner shall have a period of thirty (30) days to comply with the requirement. However, during said thirty (30) day period, a battery operated carbon monoxide detector with alarm must be installed. Each carbon monoxide detector as required in accordance with the above provisions must comply with NFPA 720 and be ANSI/UL 2034 and IAS certified. In addition when the vent termination is less than seven (7) feet above finished grade a metal or plastic identification plate must be permanently mounted to the exterior of the building at a minimum height of eight (8) feet above grade directly in line with the exhaust vent terminal. The sign shall read, in print size no less than one-half (1/2) inch in size, “GAS VENT DIRECTLY BELOW. KEEP CLEAR OF ALL OBSTRUCTIONS”. A COPY OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS PLUS ALL VENTING INSTRUCTIONS WHICH INCLUDE PARTS LISTS, AND/OR ALL VENTING DESIGN INSTRUCTIONS MUST REMAIN WITH THE STOVE AT THE COMPLETION OF THE INSTALLATION. ATTENTION INSTALLERS: Mark below which venting system was used in the installation. These instructions must remain with the Slim 26 Installation & Operation Manual. Simpson DuraVent GS/PRO®

VENTING The Slim 26 Direct Vent Gas Fireplace has been tested and listed for installation with 4” X 6 5/8” Simpson DuraVent GS/Pro®, Selkirk Direct-Temp®, Security Secure Vent™, AmeriVent Direct™, Metal Fab Direct Vent and ICC EXCELDirect venting components. Although you may use the pipe components (straight pipe, elbows, etc.) from any of the listed manufacturers, you may only use the vent terminations (caps) listed in the chart on page 9. For installations where a snorkel is needed, please note that only three snorkels are approved for use. Please plan your installation accordingly. For all specific venting installation requirements, follow the installation instructions included by the venting manufacturer with the venting system components you have chosen. Please note:  For venting configurations that include no vertical rise, a total horizontal vent run of up to 30 inches (and including one 45° elbow) is allowed. However, if your installation has room to add a vertical pipe section, we suggest adding at least one foot of vertical rise to the system.  For venting configurations that include vertical rise, it is assumed that the installation will include at least one 90° elbow. Up to three additional 90° elbows (or equivalent 45° elbows) may also be used. The total venting may not exceed 20 feet of vertical rise and/or 10 feet horizontal run. Refer to the venting charts starting on pages 10 & 11 for specific details while you plan your installation. Note: The number of elbows impacts the maximum allowable horizontal vent run.  Many installations will involve venting directly through standard 2 X 4 or 2 X 6 construction exterior wall to a horizontal vent termination (cap). The vent starter pipe has been designed to accommodate those two common installations without the use of any additional venting components other than a standard horizontal cap. See the chart on page 9 for a list of approved vent caps.  A special corner installation kit (Part Number CK-26-1) is also available that will allow the Slim 26 fireplace to be mounted in a corner without constructing a 45° partition wall. This kit is available from your Slim 26 dealer and has its own installation instructions. Please refer to those instructions for specific details regarding the installation using the kit.  If the fireplace will be installed on an interior wall or other location that precludes venting directly through an outside wall to a horizontal vent cap, or if the distance to the outside wall exceeds 30”, one or more elbows will be required to allow addition of the required vertical venting to the installation. When vertical venting is required, the fireplace venting may be terminated with either a vertical or horizontal vent cap depending on the specifics of the installation. Refer to the venting charts starting on pages 10 & 11 for specific venting requirements and see the chart on page 9 for a list of approved vent caps before you plan your installation.  A minimum clear space of 1 1/2” must be maintained around the vent pipe where it penetrates the first combustible wall adjacent to the fireplace (either the outside wall for the direct-through-the-wall installation or the partition wall for the 45° or other interior wall installations). The special vent pipe heat shields that are provided with the Slim 26 must also be installed in the first wall adjacent to the fireplace. A minimum clear space of 1 1/2” must also be maintained where the vent pipe penetrates any other interior wall, exterior wall, ceiling or roof.  The Slim 26 may also be installed in front of an exiting fireplace opening utilizing special co-linear venting components available from the venting manufacturers. These systems split and then recombine the co-axial air and exhaust and allow the use of flexible venting. This makes it easier to run the venting through the narrow fireplace damper opening to the top of the chimney. Refer to the vent manufacturers’ instructions. Use the vertical venting column (0 feet Horizontal Run) in the venting charts to determine the required restrictor settings depending on the height of chimney. 8

USING THE VENTING CHARTS 

The location of the vent termination must meet the requirements of the current edition of ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA 54, National Fuel Gas Code or CAN B419.1, Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code and the requirements shown on page 15 of this manual.

Just as with any other vented device, vertical vent rise creates draft (negative pressure) in the firebox as the exhaust gases heat up. If this draft becomes excessive, it can affect the performance or appearance of the fire. The Slim 26 fireplace includes air and exhaust restrictors that are used to balance the draft in the fireplace to the optimal level for installations where excessive draft might occur. The venting charts on pages 10 and 11 provide an easy means for determining whether your specific installation requires inlet air or exhaust restrictors or both. To make the determination about whether air or exhaust restrictors are needed, a venting chart worksheet is provided on page 12. Follow the instructions and fill in the worksheet for your particular installation. This will allow you to determine the recommended restrictor settings for your exact installation. Although this might appear to be a complicated process at first glance, it is really quite straight-forward and the result will be a fire that looks and performs as intended. Several examples of worksheet calculations are shown on page 13 to help guide you. Please be sure to note that: 1. There are separate venting charts for Natural Gas and LP Gas. Refer to the appropriate chart for your fuel type to determine your specific restrictor requirements. The settings in the charts have been determined based on extensive testing. 2. Determine the total vertical vent rise and total horizontal vent run for your installation. All measurements are made from the center of the vent opening in the back of the fireplace. 3. If your fireplace will not be venting directly though an outside wall to a horizontal termination or if more than 30” of horizontal vent run is required, some vertical vent rise will be required for the fireplace to function and vent properly. Elbows will also be required for those installations. However, installations are limited to a maximum of four 90° elbows (or 45° elbow equivalents). 4. Note: Two 45° elbows equal one 90° elbow. 5. The recommended restrictor settings in the venting charts allow up to two 90° elbows (or 45° elbow equivalents) to be used without affecting the restrictor settings. Additional elbows will require that you calculate a new equivalent horizontal run for your installation to account for the additional flow resistance caused by the extra elbows. For the purposes of calculating the equivalent horizontal vent run, each additional 90° elbow is equivalent to three feet of horizontal vent run. The total horizontal vent run including elbow equivalents can not exceed 10 feet. 6. The maximum vertical vent rise can not exceed 20 feet. 7. There are two exhaust restrictors that are provided with your Slim 26 fireplace. They are labeled “A” and “B”. The A restrictor provides less exhaust restriction than B. 8. An air restrictor plate is also provided with your fireplace. It is a ring with bendable tabs that can be set to adjust the amount of restriction in the air supply system. Once the appropriate number tabs are bent open (in accordance with the requirements for your installation), the plate is inserted between the fireplace and the vent starter pipe. 9

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Before you begin the fireplace mounting process there are several important installation requirements that must be met. Careful planning will make the installation easier to accomplish and will reduce the chances of encountering problems after you start. 1. The fireplace is designed to be wall-mounted using four lag bolts to secure the fireplace mounting plate to the wall structure. The mounts are located 16” on center and 24” on center to correspond with standard building construction. If your home has non-standard construction or the location you have chosen for the fireplace does not have wall studs that correspond to location of the fireplace mounts, modifications to the wall structure will be needed. It is critical that the four lag bolts that are provided for mounting the fireplace are firmly imbedded into the wall structure at all four locations. 2. A hole must be provided in the wall for the vent to pass through. The hole must be large enough to provide 1 1/2” clearance around the outside of the vent pipe and to allow for installation of the vent heat shields that are provided with the fireplace. Follow the hole size requirements that are provided below exactly to avoid problems. If the location you have chosen does not allow for 1 1/2” clearance to wooden framing in the wall, modifications to the wall structure must made to obtain the needed vent pipe clearance. 3. All required minimum clearances to adjacent combustible materials (including side walls, ceiling and floor) must be achieved with the position you have chosen. See the clearance information on page 6. The listed clearances are measured from the outermost front edges of the fireplace surround and not from the fireplace body or mounting plate. In addition the requirements for clearance to combustible materials inside the house, there are specific requirements and limitations that must be met for the location of the vent terminal relative to doors, windows, corners, eaves, gas supply components and other structural elements of the house. Please see page 15 for those specific requirements. Again, plan the installation in advance to avoid problems. 4. The gas supply line must be located within a specific area behind the fireplace.

17

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Once you are certain that the location you have chosen meets all the necessary mounting and safety requirements, you can begin the installation. 1. Tape or pin the installation template to the wall in the position where the fireplace is to be LEVEL mounted. Note: It is important that the fireplace is mounted in a level position. Use a spirit level placed on the cross-hairs in the upper mounting holes on the template and adjust the template position until the mounting holes MOUNTING HOLES VENT PASSare level. Refer to the adjacent illustration. THROUGH 2. Next, carefully transfer the location of the two GAS SUPPLY upper and two lower mounting holes that you CUTOUT will use for your installation. Use a sharp nail, awl or pin to pierce the template on the mounting hole cross-hairs to insure an accurate trans24” OC fer to your wall. 16” OC 3. Next transfer the location for the center of the vent pass-through hole on the wall. Also transfer at least one point on the diameter of the vent pass-through circle. This will make it easier to scribe the circle later. 4. Finally, transfer the location of the gas supply line. 5. Remove the template and circle the transferred locations with a pencil or marker. Vent Pass-Through (Parallel Wall Installation on an Outside Wall) 1. An unobstructed wall pass-through is required to allow for a safe installation of the fireplace vent components. This will necessitate removal of a portion of the interior wall covering (e.g., sheetrock or plaster and lath), outer wall sheathing and outer wall covering and any adjacent internal wall materials (like insulation). 2. Scribe a 9 5/8” diameter hole around the vent pass-through center mark using a compass. 3. Use a long drill (1/8” diameter) that is held square and level to the inside wall to transfer the vent passthrough center location from the inner wall covering through to the outer wall sheathing and outer wall covering. 4. Carefully cut the inner wall covering along the scribed line and remove the circular wall piece. Note: It is important to locate electrical wiring in the wall before beginning the installation process. An electrician should be consulted if there is any question about wiring locations. Failure to locate and protect wiring during the installation process my result in electrical shock or fire. 5. Remove any insulation materials from wall in the area defined by the pass-through hole. 6. Building codes in your area may require that you add blocking above and below the vent opening. The blocking should be above and below the 9 5/8” vent opening you made in the wall and should not obstruct that opening. The blocking should extend to adjacent wall studs. 7. Next, mark and cut a 9 5/8” diameter hole through the outer wall covering and sheathing using the locating hole you drilled in Step 2. 8. Follow the instructions included with the vent termination (cap) to remove the appropriate amount of outer wall covering (siding) or to install the vinyl siding shield if used. Do not install the chimney cap at this point.

18

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Vent Pass-Through (Parallel Wall Installation on an Interior Partition Wall) 1. An unobstructed wall pass-through is required to allow for a safe installation of the fireplace vent components. This will necessitate removal of a portion of the interior wall covering (e.g., sheetrock or plaster and lath), on both sides of the partition wall and any adjacent internal wall materials (like insulation). 2. Scribe a 9 5/8” diameter hole around the vent pass-through center mark using a compass. 3. Use a long drill (1/8” diameter) that is held square and level to the inside wall to transfer the vent passthrough center location from the inner wall covering through to the wall covering on the back side of the partition wall. 4. Carefully cut the inner wall covering along the scribed line and remove the circular wall piece. Note: It is important to locate electrical wiring in the wall before beginning the installation process. An electrician should be consulted if there is any question about wiring locations. Failure to locate and protect wiring during the installation process my result in electrical shock or fire. 5. Remove any insulation materials from wall in the area defined by the pass-through hole. 6. Building codes in your area may require that you add blocking above and below the vent opening. The blocking should be above and below the 9 5/8” vent opening you made in the wall and should not obstruct that opening. The blocking should extend to adjacent wall studs. 7. Next, mark and cut a 9 5/8” diameter hole through the wall covering on the back side of the partition wall using the locating hole you drilled in Step 2. 8. When installing the fireplace on a partition wall, the venting may be penetrating one or more interior walls, an exterior wall, the ceiling or the roof. 9. It is important to lay out the locations of all vent pass-through’s before you begin the installation to insure that the venting will line-up correctly and that the walls and ceiling meet the needed clearances to the vent pipe. 10. The vent pass-through in the partition wall where the fireplace is mounted must be done in accordance with the instructions for a parallel wall installation on an outside wall, following steps 1 through 6.

Vent Pipe Heat Shields Special telescoping double heat shields for the vent pipe are provided with the Slim 26 fireplace. These heat shields are a critical part of a safe installation. They are designed to protect combustible materials in the wall immediately behind the fireplace. The only exception to this is if the corner installation kit (Part Number CK-26-1) is used. With the corner kit, the heat shields are installed where the venting passes through the first adjacent side wall. See the instructions included with the corner kit for specific details. 19

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Gas Supply Line 1. Once the vent pass-through (or pass-through’s) are finished, the gas supply line should be installed. The supply line should exit the wall that the fireplace will be installed on at the location specified on the installation template We suggest the installation of a shut-off valve in the supply line between the wall and the connection to the fireplace. Your professional gas installer or local gas company will determine the specific requirements for the gas supply line as the requirements may vary in different locations. In every case, the installation must conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1 or the Canadian Installation Code, CAN/CGA B149. Installing the Fireplace Mounting Plate on the Wall 1. The fireplace mounting plate is attached to the wall structure using four 1/4” X 1 1/2” long lag bolts and large diameter washers that are provided with the fireplace. It is important to use the included hardware as the full weight of the fireplace is supported by the mounting plate. 2. Drill a 5/32” diameter pilot hole at each of the mounting hole locations that you marked using the INNER VENT PIPE SHIELD template. The pilot holes should be the full depth (Smaller Diameter) of the lag bolts. Be sure that there is solid wood at each mounting location. If not, the wall should be reconstructed to provide the needed support. 3. Before the mounting plate can be lagged to the wall the two tabbed sections of the telescoping vent pipe heat shields that you set aside earlier must be attached to the mounting plate. Each heat shield half is held in place with three sheet metal screws (provided). The inner shield half (smaller diameter) is installed from the front of the mounting plate. Slide the inner heat shield half through the vent pipe opening in the mounting plate. Align the three tabs with the pilot holes in the mounting plate (as shown in the adjacent illustration) and install the three screws. 4. The outer vent pipe heat shield half (larger diameter) is installed on the rear of the mounting plate. Slip the outer shield half over the inner shield and align and install the three screws. See the adjacent illustration. 5. The fireplace mounting plate is now ready to be OUTER VENT PIPE SHIELD lagged to the wall structure. (Larger Diameter) 6. With a helper pick up and align the mounting plate over the gas supply line and line up with the four mounting lag bolt pilot holes. These holes are in recessed bosses. Use either the 16” or 24” on center holes depending on the construction of the wall. 7. Using the lag bolts and washers provided with the fireplace, install the top lag bolts (with washers) first, followed by the lower ones. Use a 7/16” socket wrench to tighten the lag bolts. 20

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Note: It may be helpful to put a light coating of dish or hand soap on the lag bolts to reduce resistance when tightening. 8. At this point, check to be sure that there is a 5/16” air gap between the entire flat back surface of the mounting plate and the wall surface. The gap is critical to a safe installation and if the gap is obstructed in any way, remove the obstruction before proceeding. 9. Next check that the brackets on the mounting plate that actually hold the fireplace are level, again using a spirit level. If the brackets are not perfectly level, you can adjust the right bracket by loosening the bracket fasteners and moving the bracket until it is level with the left bracket. Remember to tighten the bracket fasteners once you have achieved a level position. 10. The next step is to install the vent starter pipe onto the fireplace. 11. Remove the glass panel and glass frame assembly from the front of the firebox by loosening and removing the four glass frame fasteners that are located along the top edge of the glass frame. 12. While holding the glass panel and glass frame along the outer edges, tip the top of the glass frame forward a few inches. 13. Wrap your fingers around the frame and hold the glass and frame together while you lift the frame up and out of the lower glass retainer. Set the glass and frame assembly aside in a safe place. 14. Carefully place the fireplace with the front down on a protected floor. 15. At this point, it is necessary to determine whether your installation will require the addition of flow restrictors to the combustion air inlet system or the exhaust outlet or both. Refer to the venting section that starts on page 8 to make that determination. 16. If your installation does not require any restrictors, place the vent starter pipe gasket on the back of the fireplace aligning the holes in the gasket with the pilot holes on the rear of the fireplace. 17. Align the inner pipe of the vent starter pipe with the exhaust outlet pipe on the fireplace. The vent pipe will fit tightly over the fireplace pipe. Gently push the starter pipe on to the fireplace pipe until the outer pipe flange makes contact with the starter pipe gasket. Be sure that the holes in the starter pipe flange align with the gasket and pilot holes. When the flange contacts the gasket, install the four fasteners provided with the starter pipe. 21

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION 18. If your installation does require an air restrictor or exhaust restrictor or both, these must be installed before you install the vent starter pipe. Again, refer to the venting information starting on page 8 to determine the specific restrictor requirements for your specific installation. 19. The exhaust restrictor is installed by placing it through the exhaust outlet pipe and resting it on the internal baffle in the firebox. It is held in place with a movable retainer clip. Simply hold the restrictor down against the baffle and push the retainer up and tighten screw to secure the restrictor. Note: Please take care to insure that the exhaust restrictor is centered in the exhaust outlet. Improper alignment could adversely affect the appearance of the flames. Refer to the adjacent illustrations for placement of the exhaust restrictor and clip. 20. If the air restrictor ring is required, first determine the number of tabs that must be bent open. Before bending any tabs, align the mounting holes in the ring over the four pilot holes on the back of the fireplace. When selecting the tabs to bend, it is important to maintain the most symmetrical pattern possible. The first tabs bent must be opposite each other and oriented horizontally. If only one tab is specified, orient the ring over the pilot holes so the split tabs are oriented horizontally and bend up two opposing half-tabs. Additional tabs should INSERTING THE EXHAUST be evenly spaced relative to the first two. With the appropriRESTRICTOR ate tabs bent, re-align the mounting holes in over the pilot holes keeping the proper orientation AND with the bent tabs facing away from the fireplace body. 21. Place the vent starter pipe gasket on the back of the fireplace aligning the holes in the gasket with the pilot holes on the rear of the fireplace. 22. Align the inner pipe of the vent starter pipe with the exhaust outlet pipe on the fireplace. The vent pipe will fit tightly over the fireplace pipe. Gently push the starter pipe on to the fireplace pipe until the outer pipe flange makes contact with the vent pipe gasket. Be sure that the holes in the starter pipe flange align with the gasket and pilot holes. When the flange contacts the gasket, install the four fasteners provided with the starter pipe.

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION 23. You are now ready to install the fireplace on the mounting plate. This will require a helper as the fireplace is quite heavy. Lift the fireplace up and guide the vent pipe into the vent pipe opening in the mounting plate. The vent pipe must be at the highest location possible in the vent pipe opening (almost touching the inner vent pipe heat shield) to allow the mounting tabs on the rear of the fireplace to clear the top of the mounting brackets on the mounting plate. Refer to the adjacent illustration. 24. While looking in from the sides, guide the upper and lower mounting tabs on the back of the fireplace into the corresponding brackets on the mounting plate. When the tabs and brackets are aligned, push the fireplace down and in to engage the tabs in the brackets. Note: The weight of the fireplace is carried only on the top brackets. The bottom brackets function simply to keep the bottom of the fireplace from moving. Refer to the adjacent illustration. 25. If the fireplace is properly positioned on the brackets the vent starter pipe and vent heat shields should be concentric when viewed through the vent pass-through in the wall. Go outside and look in the hole to confirm this. If you are mounting the fireplace on a 45° partition wall, look in the pass-through using a mirror if needed. If the vent starter pipe and vent pipe heat shields do not appear to be concentric, check to be sure that the mounting tabs on the fireplace are all fully engaged in the brackets on the mounting plate and that the upper two tabs are sitting down on the upper brackets. If they are not, adjust the fireplace until they are.

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Installing the Outer Vent Heat Shields and Vent Termination (Parallel Installation on Outside Wall) 1. Before you install the horizontal vent termination, you must first install the second halves of the two telescoping vent pipe heat shields. Each shield OUTER TELEhalf simply slips over the half you previously atSCOPING SHIELD tached to the fireplace mounting plate and can now be seen inside the vent pass-through in the wall. 2. Install the outer shield first and the inner second. Leave about 1-1/4” of the shields protruding past the house sheathing. 3. Install the horizontal vent termination (vent cap) by first removing the two mounting straps as they INNER TELESCOPING will not be used. Be sure the arrow on the cap (if SHIELD present) is pointing up and reconfirm that all the vent cap location requirements per page 15 and the vent manufacturers requirements are met. 4. Slip the inner and outer vent termination pipes onto the vent starter pipe taking care to align the inner and outer pipes to prevent damage. 5. Slide the vent termination (cap) into the siding recess (or vinyl siding shield) until it bottoms out. Note: The rear surface of the vent termination will push the telescoping vent pipe heat shields inward. When the vent termination is in place the heat HORIZONTAL VENT TERMINATION shields will just touch the rear surface of the termination. 6. Pull the vent cap away from the sheathing and inTYPICAL VENT TERMINAL MOUNTING HOLES stall a small bead of non-hardening silicone sealer around the cap perimeter. Push the cap in place. 7. Install the mounting screws (included with the cap) to hold the vent cap to the sheathing See the venting manufacturers instructions for the location of the mounting holes. Typical mounting hole locations are shown in the adjacent illustration. See the venting manufacturers instructions for more information or if using the vinyl siding shield.

24

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Installing the Outer Vent Heat Shields (Partition Wall Installation) 1. Before you install the additional vent pipe and elbow(s) that will complete the venting installation, you must first install the second sections of the vent pipe heat shields to protect the combustible materials around the vent pipe pass-through in the partition wall that the fireplace is mounted on. Each shield half simply slips over the half you previously attached to the fireplace mounting plate and that can now be seen inside the vent passthrough in the partition wall. 2. Install the outer shield first and the inner second. Leave at least 2” of both shields protruding past the partition wall framing or wall covering. See the illustration on page 24.

Vent Pipe and Vent Termination Installation (Partition Wall Installation) 1. The specific details of the vent configuration from the vent starter pipe on the fireplace to the horizontal or vertical vent termination (cap) when the fireplace is installed on an interior wall of the house will vary depending on the location of the fireplace on the wall, what is on the back side of the wall, where the vent termination will be located (roof or exterior wall) and on other code requirements for the location of the vent termination as shown page 15. However, the maximum vent length, measured along the centerline of the pipe, from the back of the fireplace to the start of the vent termination cannot exceed 30 feet, including a maximum of 20 feet of vertical rise and a maximum of 10 feet of horizontal run. If more than two 90° elbows (or equivalent 45° elbows) are needed for your installation, the maximum amount of horizontal run allowed is reduced. See the venting section starting on page 8 for specific information. It is important to plan the installation in advance so that you can accurately locate the any wall or ceiling pass-through’s and the vent termination on the exterior wall or roof. The vent pipe sections are available only in certain increments of length and in adjustable length sections. Plan carefully before you start! 2. You will find it helpful to leave access to the area behind the partition wall to facilitate installation of the vent components. The pipe sections may have twist lock connections which will be difficult to execute without good access. 3. Be sure that the two vent pipe heat shields extend at least 2” beyond the rear side of the partition wall adjacent to the fireplace after the venting is installed. 4. Maintain a minimum 1 1/2” unobstructed air space around the vent pipe where it passes through other interior walls, the ceiling, the exterior wall or the roof. 5. Note: Vent manufacturer’s instructions and some building codes may require the addition of blocking above and below all wall pass-through’s, the addition of vent manufacturer supplied fire-stops, wall thimbles, attic insulation shields, interior trim collars, vent support brackets, or other components. Please check with the authority having jurisdiction in your area when planning the venting installation to determine the specific code requirements and exact venting components that are required for your installation.

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Gas Connection. 1. Verify that the gas type is correct for the fireplace by looking CONNECT GAS SUPat the rating plate that is attached to the right side of the firePLY LINE TO 3/8” place, adjacent to the control battery pack. Note: The fireTUBE OD (MALE) place is shipped from the factory equipped to burn the fuel listed on the rating plate. Fuel conversion in the field is not RECOMMENDED LOallowed. CATION FOR A SHUT2. The gas connection should now be made from the gas supply OFF VALVE line to the inlet regulator on the fireplace. Use only a qualified gas installer to make the connection. 3. The fireplace is shipped from the factory with a 3/8” tube OD (male) connection. 4. The gas supply piping should have a separate gas shut-off valve and a 1/8” NPT plugged tapping upstream of the valve. We recommend installing a shut-off valve between the gas supply line where it penetrates the wall / fireplace mounting plate and the inlet to the regulator on the fireplace. This will allow gas to be shut-off to the fireplace by simply removing the fireplace surround to gain access to the shut-off valve. 5. The fireplace and its inlet regulator and main burner 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 psi (3.5kPa). 6. The fireplace must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing the gas shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psi (3.5kPa). After the gas supply has been connected, use a commercial gas leak detector or apply a soapy water solution to all the fittings to check for gas leaks. Never use a flame to test for leaks.

26

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Installing or Replacing the Batteries 1. The valve control module is powered by four “AA” batteries. The batteries are mounted within the Valve Receiver Module located on the right side of the fireplace attached to a drop-down mounting bracket for easy accessibility. Refer to the adjacent illustration. 2. Loosen the thumb screw on the module drop-down mounting bracket by turning counter-clockwise until the threads are fully disengaged from the base bracket. 3. Rotate the Valve Receiver Module and mounting bracket. Toward you 90 degrees. 4. Slide off the Battery compartment cover. 5.

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION 4. Starting at one end, pour the glass media onto the burner tray, keeping the pouring spout on the polybag toward the center of the burner to avoid spillage of glass pieces over the sides of the burner. See the adjacent illustrations. 5. Once you have poured all of the glass burner media into the burner tray, carefully smooth the glass pieces out so they have a uniform depth over the entire surface of the burner. When the burner glass media is properly placed, it should look like the adjacent illus- BURNER GLASS MEDIA PARTIALLY INSTALLED trations. 6. Note: If a few pieces of glass escape over the edges of the burner tray during installation, it is not a problem. They will simply land in the area below the burner and will do no harm. Relief Door Installation 1. The two relief doors are shipped separated from the fireplace and must be installed on the top of the firebox at this point in the installation. Note: The relief doors include a gasket material that covers the full bottom surface. Use care in handling the relief doors BURNER GLASS MEDIA FULLY INSTALLED to avoid damage to the gasket material. 2. The first illustration below shows one of the two sets of relief openings and relief door retainers. 3. The relief doors include line-up tabs that correspond to slotted retainers on the firebox. 4.

Installing the Front Glass Panel and Frame After burner media and relief doors been installed, the next step is to replace the front glass panel and frame. 1. Carefully pick up the glass and glass frame assembly by grasping the sides of the frame and using your thumbs and fingers to hold the glass in place within the gasket and frame. 2. With the glass frame (and glass) held at a slight angle (leaving room for your fingers between the frame and the firebox) insert the bottom edge of the frame into the frame retainer located on the bottom front of the firebox. Take care to center the frame from left to right. 3. Once the bottom edge is in place, move your fingers out of the way and press the top of the frame against the firebox while pushing down to be sure the frame is fully engaged in the frame retainer. 4. Hold the frame in place with one hand and insert the four glass frame fasteners along the top edge of the glass frame. Tighten the fasteners until they are hand-tight. 5. Tighten each fastener 1/2 turn at a time, working from one side to the other, until the glass frame has made contact with the firebox face along the entire top edge. Do not over-tighten the fasteners as this can put excessive stress on the glass. 29

ASSEMBLY & INSTALLATION Installing the Outer Panels 1. The four outer decorative panels are secured to the fireplace with philips head screws. The top and bottom panels are secured to the fireplace mounting plate with sheet metal screws. All other screws are philips head machine screws. 2. Install the top panel first. Align the three holes along the rear edge of the panel with pilot holes along the top edge of the fireplace mounting plate. 3. Insert and tighten the three sheet metal screws. A magnetic nut driver is helpful. 4. Install the left side panel next. Align the three holes along the rear edge of the panel with the PEM nuts along the edge of the fireplace mounting plate. Insert the three philips head screws but do not fully tighten. 5. Locate the fastener hole at the top front edge of the left side panel and align with the PEM nut in the front of the top panel. Insert the philips head screw. 6. Make sure the edges of the panel are aligned with the edges of the top panel and mounting plate and tighten all four philips head screws. 7. Position the right side panel so it aligns with the three PEM nuts on the mounting plate and the front PEM nut on the top panel. Align the rear and top panel edges with the adjoining parts and insert and tighten the four philips head screws. 8. Install the bottom panel next. Guide the rear flange on the LOWER SURROUND BRACKETS panel upward until the mounting holes in the flange line up with the pilot holes in the mounting plate. 9. Attach the panel to the mounting plate using sheet metal screws along the back edge of the panel. Note: It may make installation of the sheet metal screws easier if you remove the two lower surround mounting brackets from the front of the fireplace. A magnetic nut-driver will also be helpful. 10. Attach the bottom panel to the side panels by aligning the fastener holes in the bottom panel with the PEM nuts in the front corners of the bottom flanges on the side panels. Insert and tighten the two philips head screws. 11. Reinstall the lower surround brackets if you removed them by inserting and tightening the two sheet metal screws in each bracket.

30

ASSEMBLY Installing the Fireplace Surround The decorative surround for the fireplace is held in place by four brackets. Two are located on the top of the fireplace and two on the bottom. There are mating brackets and catch plates on the surround itself. Refer to the adjacent illustrations when installing the surround. 1. Unpack the surround from shipping box. 2. With a helper, lift the surround up and identify the top by looking for the vertical brackets that are visible from the rear of the surround. 3. Move the surround into place, generally centering the surround opening over the glass panel. Keep the bottom of the surround tipped slightly away from the fireplace. 4. While looking behind the surround, guide the two surround brackets onto the forward detent of the mating brackets on the fireplace top. You might find it easier to engage one bracket and then the other. Lower the surround until both bracket sets are fully mated. 5. Carefully push the top of the surround so that the surround brackets slide into the rear detent of the mating brackets on the fireplace top. 6. Carefully swing the bottom of the surround toward the base of the fireplace until the catch plates on the bottom flange of the surround are aligned with the spring loaded plungers on the bottom flanges of the lower surround mounting brackets. 7. To remove the surround, pull the bottom edge of the surround outward to disengage the spring loaded plungers and then lift the top up and off the upper brackets. 8. To prevent damage to the surround, always set the surround in a safe place while it is removed from the fireplace.

LIGHTING AND OPERATION OPERATING YOUR FIREPLACE FOR THE FIRST TIME When operating your new fireplace for the first time, some vapors may be released due to the burning of curing compounds used in the manufacture of the appliance. They may cause a slight odor and could cause the flames to be the full height of the firebox, or even slightly higher, for the first few hours of operation. It is also possible that these vapors could set off any smoke detection alarms in the immediate vicinity. These vapors are quite normal on new appliances. We recommend opening a window to vent the room. After a few hours use, the vapors will have disappeared and the flames will be at their normal height. FLAME SUPERVISION DEVICE For your safety, this appliance is fitted with a flame supervision device which will shut-off the gas supply if, for any reason, the pilot flame goes out. This device incorporates a fixed probe, which senses the heat from the pilot flame. If the probe is cool, the device will prevent any gas flow unless manually lighting the pilot. See full lighting instructions. LIGHTING, OPERATION AND RATING INFORMATION The Lighting, Operation and Rating information is lo! cated on a plate under the firebox. To access the plate, remove any fret or access panel and DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TOUCH THE DATA grab the plate and slide it out to read it. There is imporPLATE WHILE THE FIREPLACE IS STILL HOT! tant information on both sides of the plate. Let the fireplace cool first before touching it.

WARNING

SERVICING If any attention is required for your appliance, contact your dealer quoting the model number. It will be helpful if the appliance’s serial number can also be quoted. This number is on the rating plate, which is located under the burner. The replacement parts are shown at the end of this manual. Please always quote the part number and description when requesting spare parts. FIREPLACE CONTROL DEVICES There are two ways to control your fireplace. 1. Thermostatic Remote Control 2. Optional Wall Switch The Thermostatic Remote Control can be programmed to function automatically—see pages 9–13.

MAINTENANCE A qualified service agency should conduct an annual inspection and maintenance of your Slim 26 including the overall installation and venting to keep it running safely. The following procedures should be performed only by a qualified service person. The gas supply should be turned off and the stove should be completely cool whenever a maintenance procedure is performed. All parts of the appliance that are removed for servicing must be replaced prior to operation. WARNING: Do not operate the appliance with the glass front removed, cracked or broken. Replacement of the glass should be done by a qualified service person. WARNING: Use only glass assembly, P/N 26-510 which includes the glass panel, frame and gasket. Do not use substitute materials. Do not strike or slam the glass front. The appliance area must be kept clear and free from combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids. REPLACING THE GLASS The glass mounting system consists of the glass panel, special glass gasket and the metal glass frame. Should the glass need to be replaced, you must replace the entire glass/glass frame assembly (PN 26-510). See page 46 for information on obtaining replacement parts. Use the following procedure and refer to the illustrations on page 29 of this manual. 1. Turn the fireplace completely off and allow it to cool to room temperature. 2. Remove the fireplace surround. See instructions on page 31. 3. If the glass is broken, be sure to wear gloves and eye protection. 4. Remove the glass frame fasteners from the top edge of the glass frame. 5. This will allow the glass frame to tip slightly forward. The glass may be loose in the frame, so it is very important to support both the glass and the frame when handling. Place your thumbs on the outside of the glass frame and wrap your fingers around the frame and onto the glass. Squeeze the frame and glass while moving. Carefully lift the glass frame and glass up and off the fireplace. Set the glass and frame aside on a padded surface. If the glass is broken, do this over spread out newspaper to catch all loose material. Wrap the old glass frame, glass and gasket in several layers of newspaper and discard. Installing the replacement glass/glass frame assembly. 1. Unpack the new glass/glass frame assembly taking care when handling. 2. Carefully pick up the glass and glass frame assembly by grasping the sides of the frame and using your thumbs and fingers to hold the glass in place within the gasket and frame. 3. With the glass frame (and glass) at a slight angle (leaving room for your fingers between the frame and the firebox) insert the bottom edge of the frame into the frame retainer located on the bottom front of the firebox. Take care to center the frame from left to right. Once the bottom edge is in place, move your fingers out of the way and press the top of the frame against the firebox while pushing down to be sure the frame is fully engaged in the frame retainer. Hold the frame in place with one hand and reinstall the glass frame fasteners, leaving them loose. 4. Tighten the glass frame fasteners in stages working from the center out. Continue the process until all fasteners are uniformly tight. Do not over-tighten the fasteners. 5. Replace the fireplace surround.. See instructions on page 31. CLEANING THE GLASS WARNING: Never clean the glass while it is hot. Do not use abrasive cleaners or cleaners containing ammonia. NOTE: A micro-fiber cleaning cloth and plain water is recommended by the glass manufacturer.

40

MAINTENANCE Inspecting the Venting An inspection of both the inner and outer vent pipes and the vent terminal should be made as part of the annual service appointment. The venting must have no blockage and be in good repair. The vent manufacturer’s instructions may provide specific details on vent inspection. Any vent sections that are disassembled must be reassembled and sealed as required. This appliance should be inspected before use and at least annually by a qualified service person. More frequent cleaning may be required due to excessive dust or lint from carpeting, bedding materials, pets, etc. It is imperative that control compartments and circulating air passageways of this appliance be kept clean. Cleaning the Burner and Firebox During the annual inspection and maintenance appointment, the service person should clean the burner and firebox. To gain access to the firebox and burner, follow the instructions beginning on page 34 of this manual. DO NOT USE A VACUUM CLEANER TO CLEAN THE GLASS BURNER MEDIA. A vacuum cleaner may be used to clean the metal parts of the firebox. Leave the glass burner media in place. Use a soft brush to clean the burner glass media. If the burner media does need to be removed, carefully scoop it off the burner and avoid dropping glass pieces in the air gaps around the burner. Follow the instructions on page 27 of this manual when replacing the burner media on the burner top. Air Flow The Slim 26 utilizes a convection air heat exchange system to maximize heat delivered from the fireplace. It is important that air flows freely through the convection air system and out the top and side air grills. Do not place objects under the fireplace that will block the convection air inlet flow or in front of any air outlet.
