Figure 1


The unit is approved for installation in any firebox opening that meets the following minimum dimensions shown in Figure 1.

Please note that there are no combustion or heat restrictions on this unit. It can be installed in structures approved for wood or gas fires, such as masonry fireplaces and wood stoves. It can also be installed in structures not approved for wood or gas fires, such as wood or drywall alcoves. The unit should rest on a flat, solid surface.

This unit does NOT require venting. It can be installed in vent-free fireboxes, as well as traditional direct vent fireboxes.

This unit comes completely wired. It requires only to be plugged into a 15 Amp, 120 Volt circuit. It is best if the outlet is located so it can be reached with the 8 ft. power cord. However, an extension cord may be used, provided it is rated at not less than 200 watts (a higher rated extension cord would be needed with the heater, if purchased).

When installing this unit in an existing fireplace or stove, close all dampers to keep out cold air, rain, and chimney debris. If dampers do not keep out rain, have a qualified technician cap and seal the top of your chimney flue. If you return the fireplace or stove to its original use, remember to return the venting system to its original configuration.


  1. Remove all components from the shipping carton, and remove all packaging materials.
  2. Place the base assembly in the firebox, centering it from left to right. The base assembly may be pushed back into the firebox until it contacts the rear wall of the firebox, or it may be left farther forward, if desired. To prevent accidental damage, the front edge of the base assembly should be completely contained within the firebox. To prevent movement, the base assembly may be fixed in place by screwing down through the two holes in its base (see Fig. 2). This is not required, however.
  3. Uncoil the power cord, but do NOT plug in the cord at this time. Establish the path to the outlet. The cord should run as close to the wall as possible and be out of the way of traffic.
  4. Install the light bulbs into the light sockets. Hold the sockets while installing the bulbs to prevent twisting.
  5. Remove the logs from their packaging. Install the front and rear logs (see Fig.3). The rear log should be centered left to right on the base assembly and pushed back until it contacts the lip on the back edge of the base assembly – the charred hollow area of the rear log faces forward. The front log sets over the light sockets and rests on the grate – the cut out of the front log covers the cut of the front log covers the light bulbs.
  6. CAREFULLY open the flame package and remove the flame strip. Inspect the flame strip to see that the flames are centered left to right on the flame bar, with their bottom edges aligned with the bottom edge of the flame bar. The magnetic strip should be centered left to right on the flame bar and should hold the flames securely in place. If the magnetic strip or flames have shifted during shipping, restore them to the proper placement by removing the magnetic strip and gently moving the flame strips to their proper placement and finally placing the magnetic strip back in place. The flame strip comes pre-assembled using two films. One is a yellow transparent film that is painted with a very thin layer of orange paint. The second one is a transparent pink film. There is an extra film of each in the package for use later on if the films get damaged. In addition there is an unpainted transparent yellow film in the package. Please experiment with the different films and arrange them in different order and choose the combination that pleases you the most. Or use the combination provided by us.
  7. Position the flame strip over the blower outlet of the base assembly, with the magnetic strip facing forward. The flame bar fits in the slots at either end of the blower opening, and is centered between the two screw heads (see Fig. 2). BE CAREFUL not to crease the flames or trap them beneath the flame bar.
  8. Place the top logs in the positions shown (see Fig.3). Top log position is not critical. Top logs can be placed in a position that is pleasing to your eye. Take care not to trap flames under logs.
  9. Spread pieces of the tumbled glass (included) over the screen located in front of and under the grate (Ember Area shown in Fig. 2). Spread the glass to cover the screen completely and evenly. Experiment with the amount you use to get the best effect. In addition, extra glass and/or lava rock could be spread around the unit and in front of the ember area (if you have space) to give it a more natural look.
  10. Plug in the unit and turn it on (see OPERATION below). The ember bed should light up and the flames should stand up and flutter. If there are problems, see TROUBLESHOOTING below.


The placement of the front log can affect the lighting and look of the log set. By rotating the front log away from the flames, more light shines on the flames, making them brighter. If the log is rotated too far toward the flames, it can reduce the light and the flames may appear dull. Experiment with the position of the front log to find the best position for your fireplace.


The ON/OFF switch is located on the front left of the unit. All functions of the unit are activated through this switch.


Changing light bulbs:

  1. Unplug the unit.
  2. Remove all top logs and the front log.
  3. Unscrew the light bulb, holding the socket to prevent bending.
  4. Replace the old bulb with a T 6 ½ intermediate base 25 watt light bulb.
  5. Replace the logs.
  6. Plug in the unit.

NOTE: If the unit has been run, allow the light bulbs to cool at least 5 minutes before touching them.

Changing the flame strips:

  1. Unplug the unit.
  2. Remove the top logs.
  3. Remove the old flame strips.
  4. Open the new flame package and check the position of the flames and magnetic strip (see INSTALLATION, step 6).
  5. Install the new flame strips (see INSTALLATION, step 7).
  6. Replace all top logs.
  7. Plug in the unit.


  1. Unplug the unit.
  2. Keep the blower inlet and outlet free from dust and debris.
  3. The logs and the ember bed can be dusted or washed gently with a mild cleaning solution, but allow them to dry thoroughly before operating the unit.
  4. The flames may be dusted very lightly, but take care not to damage them.
