Custom Propane (LP) Fireplace Burner INSTRUCTIONS

 

Adequate Fireplace Ventilation is Required

NOTE: READ INSTRUCTIONS FULLY BEFORE INSTALLING OR OPERATING.  INSTALLERS, LEAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS WITH THE CONSUMER!

 

This product must be burned only in a fully vented, non-combustible fireplace with the damper completely open and the chimney free of any obstructions or restrictions.  The fireplace must be designed and approved to burn wood.  The minimum permanent, free opening in the fireplace chimney must be 8 inches in diameter (50 sq. inches) or greater.

 

IT IS THE HOMEOWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO ASSURE THAT

THEIR FIREPLACE HAS ADEQUATE DRAFT.

 

WARNING:  IF THE INFORMATION IN THIS MANUAL IS NOT FOLLOWED EXACTLY, A FIRE OR EXPLOSION MAY RESULT CAUSING PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY OR LOSS OF LIFE.

 

FOR YOUR SAFETY – IF YOU SMELL GAS

1.                  OPEN WINDOWS

2.                  DON’T TOUCH ELECTRICAL SWITCHES

3.                  EXTINQUISH ANY OPEN FLAMES

4.                  IMMEDIATELY CALL YOUR GAS SUPPLIER

 

FLAMMABLE VAPORS MAY BE DRAWN BY AIR CURRENTS FROM OTHER AREAS OF YOUR HOUSE TO THIS APPLIANCE.

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

DO NOT USE A NATURAL GAS BURNER FOR PROPANE OR A PROPANE BURNER FOR NATURAL GAS.  WHEN USING PROPANE GAS (LP) AN AUTOMATIC PILOT SYSTEM MUST BE INSTALLED.

 

1.                  There are many different local codes for gas fireplaces.  The installation of Aquatic Glassel glass must conform to your local codes, or in the absence of local codes, conform to the National Fuel Gas Code (ANSI Z223.1 1999).

2.                  When glass fireplace doors are used, always operate fireplace with the doors fully open to allow for proper combustion.

3.                  Periodically, the glass may be dusted with a soft feather duster.  The top layer may also be scooped up and taken to a water source and washed.

4.                  Do not burn wood with this product.

 

NOTE:  THIS PRODUCT MUST BE INSTALLED BY PERSONNEL QUALIFIED TO INSTALL GAS APPLIANCES, IF REQUIRED BY YOUR LOCAL CODES.  EXOTIC FLAMES BEARS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS.

Text Box: Note: This installation manual is for a Custom Propane Fireplace Burner made in part, from UL approved components.  The valve assembly along with the thermocouple/pilot assemblies, which are the most important components of the burner, shall always be UL approved components. 

DAMPER STOP

(Optional)

 

Attach the damper stop clamp to the fireplace damper blade.  Position the clamp to prevent full closure of the fireplace damper blade.  (Figure 1)

 

If the damper stop does not fit, the installer shall install a permanent damper stop that will keep the damper open a minimum of 3 inches.

 

 

 

Step 1

 

Connect the flex line to the supply line where it enters your fireplace.  Please use UL approved (gas rated) Teflon tape on all male threads to ensure a leak-free connection.  Then position your burner as shown below.  Your fireplace floor may be rectangular or vary from the image below, but the concept will still apply.

Text Box: ! Very Important ! Now, open any gas inline shutoff valve to enable a gas supply to your burner.  Wait several minutes to see if you smell any gas.  You should not smell any gas at all.  If you do, you must investigate and correct the leak before you can continue with the installation.

 

 


 

Step 2

 

 

Following the procedure below, briefly light the Pilot to make sure there is a supply of gas.

 

Position the Pilot/Thermocouple Assembly so it rests somewhere over the top of the burner pan.

Once you’ve tested the pilot system to make sure it stays lit, you are ready for the next step.

 


 

Step 3

 

Ramp up some crushed lava rock, starting 2 to 3 inches from the front of the fireplace.  Ramp it up to the outside of the burner pan, stopping when you have filled to approximately ½ inch from the top edge of the pan.  Fill all around the pan (see below) but make sure you do not fill in front of the control tunnel.

Make note of the location of the rear burner pipe.  You will need to position the Thermocouple Assembly directly over the top of the rear burner pipe as you add the Glassel.  The Thermocouple Assembly will need to be positioned as shown below.

 

 

Step 4

 

Now pour the Glassel over the top of everything, keeping the Thermocouple Assembly positioned just above the glass and directly over the rear burner pipe, as illustrated.

Step 5

 

Text Box: ! Very Important!  Make sure your damper is fully open before lighting the burner.  Always leave the damper fully open and fireplace doors fully open when operating this appliance.

Light the Pilot using the instructions in Step 2.  Once the Pilot is lit, turn the knob to the On position.  Within a few seconds, the main burner should release gas and you should see a “bed of flame” burning above the glass.  If the gas does not ignite quickly enough, your Thermocouple Assembly is probably not centered well enough over the rear burner pipe.  First, turn the Pilot Off.  Then, making sure the glass and Pilot are both cool to the touch; dig down until you can see the burner pipe.  Then realign the Thermocouple assembly and put the glass back in place.

 

Congratulations!  You have completed the installation.

 

Here is the answer some of you think you know. (You don't!) These are Air Mixers, Venturis Carburetors.

These like a carburetor on any engine act as the air fuel mixture governor. Have you ever been behind an older car that smells funny? Wrong air mixture! Bad mechanic! The air mixers have to be calibrated not only to the valving but the burner as well. We have been building propane burners for several years now and we have never had an issue with any configuration that we have built, ever. It's the same as porting an engine for proper air flow. If you just STICK one of these on your burner then you may be giving us a call soon enough.

Here are a few pictures of the 1/2" and 3/4" air mixers, (40,000 to 400,000 btu mixers).

Air Mixers L and S 3

Air Mixers L and S 4

If you attach it and create back pressure, you will have a fire or an explosion, guaranteed. We are not trying to frighten you but to make you aware. We believe in safety first and we don't build systems without thermo couples and or pilot light systems, ever!

As you may have of seen on our "How Not To Do It Page" they still screw up no matter how hard they try. We are here only to help!
