partially depressed.
22

3) Push in the gas control knob slightly and
turn clockwise to "OFF". Do not force.
4) Disconnect all electric power and gas to the
appliance if service is to be performed.

FIRST FIRE
The first fire in your insert is part of the paint
curing process. To ensure that the paint is
properly cured, it is recommended that you
burn your fireplace for at least four (4) hours
the first time you use it with the fan on. When
first operated, the unit will release an odour
caused by the curing of the paint, the burning
off of any oils remaining from manufacturing.
Smoke detectors in the house may go off at
this time. Open a few windows to ventilate the
room for a couple of hours.

The glass panel may require cleaning
after the unit has cooled down.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE
GLASS WHILE IT IS HOT.
Note: When the glass is cold and the
appliance is lit, it may cause
condensation and fog the glass.
This condensation is normal and
will disappear in a few minutes as
the glass heats up.

DO NOT BURN THE APPLIANCE
WITHOUT THE GLASS FRONT IN
PLACE.
During the first few fires, a white film
may develop on the glass front as part
of the curing process. The glass should
be cleaned or the film will bake on and
become very difficult to remove. Use a
non-abrasive cleaner and NEVER clean
the glass while it is hot.

AUTOMATIC
CONVECTION FAN
OPERATION
The fan operates automatically, turn the knob on
the side of the faceplate to adjust to the desired
speed. The fan will turn on as the insert comes
up to operating temperature. After the unit has
been turned off and the unit cooled to below a
useful heat output range the fan will shut off
automatically.

NORMAL OPERATING
SOUNDS OF
GAS APPLIANCES
It is possible that you will hear some sounds
from your gas appliance. This is perfectly normal
due to the fact that there are various gauges
and types of steel used within your appliance.
Listed below are some examples. All are normal
operating sounds and should not be considered
as defects in your appliance.
Blower:
FPI gas appliances use high tech blowers to
push heated air farther into the room. It is not
unusual for the fan to make a "whirring" sound
when ON. This sound will increase or decrease
in volume depending on the speed setting of
your fan speed control.
Burner Tray:
The burner tray is positioned directly under
the burner tube(s) and crystals and is made
of a different gauge material from the rest of
the firebox and body. Therefore, the varying
thicknesses of steel will expand and contract at
U32S-5 FPI Direct Vent Gas Insert

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
slightly different rates which can cause "ticking"
and "cracking" sounds. You should also be aware
that as there are temperature changes within
the unit these sounds will likely re-occur. Again,
this is normal for steel fireboxes.

FOR YOUR SAFETY READ BEFORE LIGHTING
1/
NFPA 54, or Natural Gas and Propane Installation Codes, CSA B149.1. (Australia: A S5601-2004, New Zealand: NZS 5261)

WARNING: If you do not follow these instructions exactly, a fire or explosion may result causing property damage,

Blower Thermodisc:
When this thermally activated switch turns ON
it will create a small "clicking" sound. This is the
switch contacts closing and is normal.
Pilot Flame:
While the pilot flame is on it can make a very
slight "whisper" sound.
Gas Control Valve:
As the gas control valve turns ON and OFF, a
dull clicking sound may be audible, this is normal
operation of a gas regulator or valve.
Unit Body/Firebox:
Different types and thicknesses of steel will
expand and contract at different rates resulting
in some "cracking" and "ticking" sounds will be
heard throughout the cycling process.

MAINTENANCE
INSTRUCTIONS
1) Always turn the gas valve to off before
cleaning. For relighting, refer to lighting
instructions. Keep the burner and control
compartment clean by brushing and
vacuuming at least once a year. When
cleaning the logs, use a clean soft paint
brush as the logs are fragile and easily
damaged.
2) Clean (never when unit is hot) appliance,
door and faceplate with a damp cloth. Never
use an abrasive cleaner. The finishes on the
door frame and faceplate may be scratched
if abrasives are used to clean them.
The heater is finished in a heat resistant
paint and should only be refinished with heat
resistant paint (not with wall paint). FPI uses
StoveBrite Paint - Metallic Black #6309.
3) Make a periodic check of burner for proper
position and condition. Visually check the
flame of the burner periodically, making sure
the flames are steady; not lifting or floating.
If there is a problem, call a qualified service
person.
4) The appliance and venting system must be
inspected before use, and at least annually,
by a qualified field service person, to ensure
that the flow of combustion and ventilation
air is not obstructed.
During the annual service call, the burners
should be removed from the burner tray
and cleaned. Replace the embers but do
not block the pilot.
5) Keep the area near the appliance clear and
free from combustible materials, gasoline
and other flammable vapours and liquids.

MAINTENANCE
GENERAL VENT
MAINTENANCE
Conduct an inspection of the venting system
semi-annually. Recommended areas to inspect
as follows:

Top View of pilot flame
Incorrect flame pattern will have small, probably
yellow flames, not coming into proper contact
with the rear of the burner or thermopile.

1) Check the Venting System for corrosion in
areas that are exposed to the elements.
These will appear as rust spots or
streaks, and in extreme cases, holes.
These components should be replaced
immediately.
2) Remove the Termination Cap, and shine a
flashlight down the Vent. Remove any bird
nests, or other foreign material.
3) Check for evidences of excessive
condensation, such as water droplets forming
in the inner liner, and subsequently dripping
out the joints, Continuous condensation can
cause corrosion of caps, pipe, and fittings.
It may be caused by having excessive
lateral runs, too many elbows, and exterior
portions of the system being exposed to
cold weather.

Top View of pilot flame
If you have an incorrect flame pattern, contact
your FPI dealer for further instructions.

4) Inspect joints, to verify that no pipe
sections or fittings have been disturbed,
and consequently loosened. Also check
mechanical supports such as Wall Straps,
or plumbers' tape for rigidity.

Check to make sure the fan is seated properly on the pins, this is
very important - try to move the fan back and forth, there shouldn't
be any noise, if there is noise, check to see if the grommets have
come loose.
