How to Install and Operate Your Firegear BFI30SSMN Fireplace Insert
If you are looking for a way to add warmth and ambiance to your home, you might want to consider installing a Firegear BFI30SSMN fireplace insert. This is a gas-fired appliance that can be installed in an existing wood-burning fireplace or a new construction. It features a realistic log set, a variable flame height control, and a remote control for convenience. In this article, we will guide you through the installation and operation instructions for your Firegear BFI30SSMN fireplace insert.
Before you begin the installation process, make sure you have read and understood the manual that came with your fireplace insert. You should also check the local codes and regulations regarding gas appliances and venting systems. You will need a qualified professional to install the gas supply line, the venting system, and the electrical wiring for your fireplace insert. You will also need some tools and materials, such as a drill, a level, a tape measure, screws, anchors, sealant, and pipe wrenches.
The installation steps are as follows:
Remove the glass door from the fireplace insert by loosening the four screws on the bottom of the door frame. Lift the door up and out of the frame. Set it aside in a safe place.
Place the fireplace insert on a flat surface near the fireplace opening. Make sure the gas valve is in the OFF position and the power cord is unplugged.
Attach the vent adapter to the top of the fireplace insert using the four screws provided. Apply sealant around the vent adapter to prevent air leakage.
Connect the vent pipe to the vent adapter. The vent pipe should be UL listed type B-vent or equivalent. The vent pipe should extend at least 3 feet above the roof and have a cap to prevent rain and debris from entering. The vent pipe should also have a minimum clearance of 1 inch from combustible materials.
Slide the fireplace insert into the fireplace opening. Make sure it is centered and level. Secure it to the fireplace floor using the four screws and anchors provided.
Connect the gas supply line to the gas valve on the right side of the fireplace insert. Use a pipe wrench to tighten the connection. Check for gas leaks using a soap solution or a gas detector.
Connect the power cord to an outlet that is grounded and protected by a circuit breaker or a fuse. Do not use an extension cord or a power strip.
Replace the glass door by aligning it with the door frame and securing it with the four screws.
Before you operate your fireplace insert, make sure you have read and understood the manual that came with your appliance. You should also check that the venting system is clear of any obstructions and that there are no combustible materials near the fireplace opening. You will need to use the remote control that came with your fireplace insert to control its functions.
The operation steps are as follows:
Press the ON/OFF button on the remote control to turn on the fireplace insert. You will hear a beep sound and see a red light on the receiver box inside the fireplace insert.
Press the FLAME button on the remote control to adjust the flame height. You can choose from five flame levels: high, medium-high, medium, medium-low, and low.
Press the TIMER button on the remote control to set a timer for your fireplace insert. You can choose from six timer settings: 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes, 75 minutes, and 90 minutes. The timer will automatically turn off your fireplace insert when it reaches the selected time.
Press the ON/OFF button on the remote control again to turn off your fireplace insert. You will hear another beep sound and see a green light on the receiver box inside your fireplace insert.
