Read all of the instructions before starting the
installation. Follow these instructions carefully during
the installation to ensure maximum safety and benefit.
Failure to follow these instructions will void the
owner’s warranty and may present a fire hazard.

When planning a fireplace installation, it’s necessary to


determine:
• Where the unit is to be installed.

• The vent system configuration to be used.

• Gas supply piping.

• Electrical wiring.

• Framing and finishing details.

• Whether optional accessories — devices such as a fan,


wall switch, fresh air kit or remote control — are desired.

If the fireplace is to be installed on carpeting or tile, or on


any combustible material other than wood flooring, the
fireplace must be installed on a metal or wood panel that
extends the full width and depth of the fireplace.

A 4-inch side collar/damper (found in AK-TV Kit) must be
installed on the fireplace by attaching the side collar to the
outer wrap of the fireplace at the right-hand rear corner using
sheetmetal screws. Attach damper handle (extended handle
found in manual bag) to the damper door prior to attaching
door to outer wrap. Then lift the handle into the notch under
the fireplace. See Figure 3.5. Attach one end of a 4-inch
flexible air duct (not provided in the AK-TV Kit) to the side

Review safety warnings and cautions After the Installation
• Read the Safety and Warning Information section at
the beginning of this Installers Guide. ! LEAVE THIS INSTALLATION MANUAL WITH
THE APPLIANCE FOR FUTURE REFERENCE.
Double-check for gas leaks
• Before lighting the fireplace, double-check the unit for
possible gas leaks.
Double-check vent terminations and front grilles for
obstructions.
• Before lighting the fireplace, double-check the unit for
possible obstructions that could be blocking the vent ter-
minations or the front grilles.
Double-check for faulty components
• Any component that is found to be faulty MUST BE re-
placed with an approved component. Tampering with the
fireplace components is DANGEROUS and voids all war-
ranties.
• Confirm that 3V transformer is plugged into the junction
box as shown in Figure 3.27.
• Ensure vacuum hose (telfon tube) is firmly connected at
the vacuum hose connection point on both the blower
and the vacuum switch (see Figure 3.27).
