10Fireplace Insert Installation (for qualified installers only)Zero-Clearance (Metal) Fireplace Requirements Must be manufactured by one of the following manufacturers: Marco Majestic Heat N Glo Heatilator Lennox Martin Preway Tempco Superior Monesson Entire fireplace, including chimney, must meet local building requirements Chimney height: 15' minimum; 33' maximum. The damper ("A") and grate ("B") must be removed (see illustration below). The smoke shelf ("C"),internal baffles ("D"), screen ("E"), and metal or glass doors ("F") may be removed (if applicable).The masonry lining ("G"), insulation ("H"), and any structured rigid frame members (metal sides, floor,door frame, face of the fireplace, etc. – "I") may not be removed or alteredHACFDIEBG The chimney on the ZC fireplace must be listed per UL 127 or ULC 610-M87 for all installations. Anythermal protection component of the fireplace or chimney must remain in place. The fireplace andchimney must be inspected prior to installation. A NFPA 211 Level II inspection is recommended.Repairs must be made prior to insert installation. The base of the fireplace must be structurallysound and able to support the weight of the insert. The stainless steel liner must be 6” diameter and extend the full height of the chimney (also called apositive connection or full re-line). This liner must meet type HT (2100 F) requirements per UL 1777(USA) or ULC S635 with “0” clearance to masonry (Canada). The liner must be attached to the insertflue collar and to the top of the existing chimney. We recommend using the listed Travis ZC Liner Kit from Duravent (SKU 98900046, 47, or 48). If youdo not use this kit, you must use the original ZC chimney cap. The liner support and cap at the top of the chimney must not reduce air flow for the existing air-cooledchimney system. The Travis ZC Liner Kit includes a cap that meets this provision. To prevent air from passing up the ZC fireplace chimney (the gap between the liner and chimney) werecommend sealing the area near the damper. Use non-combustible material to seal this area (nonbacked fiberglass insulation or kaowool). The convection air channel on the fireplace must not be blocked. Do not block any louvers, grills, orair passages on the front of the fireplace. Entire fireplace, including chimney, must meet local building requirements. Permits may be requiredfor installation. Final approval is contingent upon the authority having local jurisdiction. Inform youinsurance agent of this fireplace insert. Travis Industries100-014354151218

Fireplace Insert Installation (for qualified installers only)11Drafting PerformanceDraft is the force which moves air from the appliance up through the chimney. The amount of draft in yourchimney depends on the length of the chimney, local geography, nearby obstructions and other factors.Too much draft may cause excessive temperatures in the appliance and may damage the heater.Inadequate draft may cause backpuffing into the room and plugging' of the chimney. Inadequate draftwill cause the appliance to leak smoke into the room through appliance and chimney connector joints. Anuncontrollable burn or excessive temperature indicates excessive draft.Insert RollersTwo rollers are built into the back edge of the insert. Thisallows the insert to be rolled into position by lifting the frontof the insert and pushing it into position (see Figure 4).Figure 4Leveling Bolt InstallationTwo leveling bolts are pre-installed on the insert to allow forproper leveling within the fireplace. To access the bolts,remove the back corner firebricks and cover plates (seeFigure 5 “a” and “b”) The bolts are pre-threaded to a weldnut on the base of the insert. Use a 3/4” socket wrench toscrew the bolts down (clockwise) until the insert is level(see “c”).bac3/4"MASONRY NOTE: You may wish to place a metal platebelow the bolt if the masonry is weak.SEALING THE COVER PLATE: We recommend sealingthe cover plate with furnace cement (place on underside ofcover plate).BOLT LENGTH: The included bolts allow approximately 1”of rise. If additional rise is required, use a longer 1/2-13thread bolt. Make sure the additional bolt length does notinterfere with the cover plate.Figure 5Flue Installation The flue must be 6” diameter and a minimum 24 gauge black steel. Use a starter section and screws to secure the flue to the insert. The starter section may require anotch to fit over the bypass rod. Travis Industries100-014354151218

Operating Your Appliance15Safety NoticeIf this appliance is not properly installed, a house fire may result. For your safety, follow the installationdirections. Contact local building or fire officials about restrictions and installation inspectionrequirements in your area.Read and follow all of the warnings on pages 4 and 5 of this manual.Before Your First FireVerify the InstallationBefore starting the stove, verify that the stove is properly installed and all of the requirements in thismanual have been followed.Keep all flammable materials 36" away from the front of the stove (drapes, furniture, clothing, etc.).Curing the Paint2 to 4 hoursFollow the steps below to cure the paint (first fire):a) Open doors and windows in the room to ventilate the heater during thecuring process.b) Vacate the room. The fumes from the initial heating process are non-toxicbut may be unpleasant.c) Slowly bring the heater to a medium burn (400 F/204 C) for 45 minutes.Then increase the burn temperature to a hot burn (600 F/315 C) for anadditional 45 minutes. This will cure the paint.Door Gasket - The door gasket might adhere to the paint on the front of theheater. Leave the door slightly ajar for the first fire and be careful whenopening the door after the first fire.Carbon Monoxide (CO) EmissionsSmoke from wood heaters contain CO. This gas is an indication of incomplete combustion and isdetrimental to the environment and to your health. The more visible the smoke, the higher the CO levels.Burning dry wood is the most significant step you can take to reduce CO emissions. It is also important tounderstand the combustion process so you can burn your heater efficiently. Read the manual thoroughlyso that you can operate your heater in the most efficient and clean manner possible.Over-Firing the StoveDO NOT OVERFIRE THIS HEATER: Attempts to achieve heat output rates that exceed heater designspecifications can result in permanent damage to the heater.This stove was designed to operate at a high temperature. But due to differences in vent configuration,fuel, and draft, this appliance can be operated at an excessive temperature. If the stove top or other areastarts to glow red, you are over-firing the stove. Shut the air control down to low and allow the stove tocool before proceeding.Over-firing may lead to damage of plated surfaces. If you are uncertain of over-firing conditions, wesuggest placing a stove thermometer (e.g. Rutland Model 710) directly over the door on the stove top temperatures exceeding 800 are generally considered over-firing and will void the warranty. Travis Industries100-014354151218

16Operating Your ApplianceOpening the DoorThe door becomes hot during use. Use a glove to open the door if the handle is hot.To prevent smoke from entering the room, open the bypass before opening the door (see followingpage for directions). You can also open the door a small amount and let air enter the firebox.SwingRotatethe doorthe dooropen.handle. Travis Industries100-014354151218

Operating Your Appliance17Bypass OperationThe bypass controls the flow of smoke inside the heater. When pulled out, smoke goes directly up theflue, creating more draft. When pushed in, the smoke goes around the baffle, utilizing the secondarycombustion and making the heater more efficient. When starting or re-loading, pull the bypass out. During normal operation, push the bypass in.Bypass Pulled OutUsed for starting and re-loadingUse the included pull toolto operate the bypass rodBypass Pushed InUsed for normal operation Travis Industries100-014354151218

18Operating Your ApplianceStarting a FireSince the dawn of time man has debated the best way to start a fire. Some use the boy-scout "tee-pee",some prefer the "tic-tac-toe" stack. Either way, review the hints and warnings below to ensure proper firestarting. Make sure the air control and by-pass are pulled out. If additional air is needed, open the doors 1/4"during the first five minutes of start-up.Never use gasoline, gasoline-type lantern fuel, kerosene, charcoal lighter fluid, or similar liquids to startor "freshen up" a fire in this stove. Keep all such liquids well away from the stove while it is in use.DO NOT USE CHEMICALS OR FLUIDS TO START THE FIRE. DO NOT BURN GARBAGE ORFLAMMABLE FLUIDS SUCH AS GASOLINE, NAPHTHA OR ENGINE OIL. Do not place such fuelwithin space heater installation clearances or within the space required for charging and ash removal.If using a firestarter, use only products specifically designed for stoves - follow the manufacturer'sinstructions carefully.HOT WHILE IN OPERATION. KEEP CHILDREN, CLOTHING AND FURNITURE AWAY. CONTACTMAY CAUSE SKIN BURNS.If the smoke does not pass up the chimney, ball up one sheet of newspaper, place it in the center of thefirebox and light it. This should start the chimney drafting (this eliminates "cold air blockage").Use plenty of kindling to ensure the stove reaches a proper temperature. Once the kindling is burningrapidly, place a few larger pieces of wood onto the fire. Travis Industries100-014354151218
