USER MANUAL PDF:
Measure from the screw holes on the side (which line up with the holes on the trim panel) to the back of the insert, then measure the depth of your fireplace, just to make sure there?s room to stuff the thing in! Open the fireplace damper all the way and make sure it stays open. If the lever hits the insert when you slide it in, you'll have to remove the lever.
These suckers are heavy. Count on needing two strong people and a hand truck (?dolly?) to move it. Measure all doors you have to bring it through, clear a path, move any obstacles. Once you have it on the hearth, slide it in most of the way. Attach the trim panel, then slide it in until the panel meets the brickwork.
Dry hardwood is the best thing to use in these inserts. Open the damper and draft all the way. Clean out the ash, if necessary, and build a fire in the bottom of the insert (again, you can remove the door to give yourself some room). Add small pieces of wood to the fire, then larger ones as those catch fire, then close the door. Leave the damper and draft open until it heats up, then close the draft about halfway and the damper about three notches. Close it down further if it heats things up too much, open it up for more heat. Close it down to about two notches from completely closed to keep the fire going overnight.
In the picture above, you?ll see the blower control on the side. The speed is (turning the knob clockwise) OFF-HIGH?LOW. You can vary the blower speed by turning the knob. Using the blower cools the insert down quite a bit, so you may have to open the damper a bit more to compensate.
To add more wood, open the damper all the way and crack the door open about an inch. When the smoke clears out, you can open the door the rest of the way and toss in more wood.
