A contemporary inset log fire which can be set directly into the wall or a suitable fire surround.
Optiflame® is the world’s most popular electric flame effect. It is a unique, patented means of generating realistic simulated flames from an electric source and creates the illusion of flames emanating from the centre of an enhanced depth fuel bed to provide a realistic glow that can be enjoyed throughout the whole year.
Unpack the heater carefully and retain the packaging for possible future
use, in the event of moving or returning the fire to your supplier. Loose
coals (and or pebbles) are packed separately within the carton. When
the heater is assembled the coals (or pebbles) are placed on top of
the fuel bed.
The heater is designed for use inset into a 407mm (16") or 457mm
(18") wide by 559mm (22") high fireplace opening see also section
‘Installation in a Fireplace Opening’.
A 2kW fan heater discreetly positioned in the canopy of the fire provides
heating in cold weather. Switching allows half or full heat.
A minimum distance of 1 metre (39") must be maintained between the
front of the heater and any surrounding furniture, overhanging curtains
or other obstructions.
To reduce heat loss and to prevent any chimney up draught affecting
the operation of your inset fire we recommend that the chimney flue is
Before connecting the heater check that the supply voltage is the same
as that stated on the heater.

In the event that your fireplace is not deep enough for your electric
fire, all models have been supplied with a spacer which allows the fire
to be freestanding.
If a plastic spacer is not already fixed to your fire, please follow the
steps inFig. 1 - 3 below to assemble your spacer. See Fig. 4 to disassemble
this spacer assembly.
If a metal spacer is already fixed to your fire and is not required, remove
the four screws to allow the fire to be fully inset.
Installation in a Fireplace Opening
At the rear of the fire, an adjustable foot is provided for levelling the
fire where the base of the fireplace opening is raised above the level
of the hearth. Adjust the foot bracket height by removing the 2 screws,
reposition the foot bracket and refix with screws.
The surround spacer may be removed (four screws) to allow the fire to
be fully inset. The minimum opening size required for the fire to be
fully inset is 392mm wide, 550mm high and 70mm deep.
Alternatively the surround spacer may be left on andpositioned
freestanding against a wall.
To ensure the appliance stability, the fire is supplied with a hook and
rawl plug. The rawl plug supplied is suitable for use in block walls
(special fasteners required on stud walls).
Spacer attached - Fig. 5a:In the event that the fire is to be positioned
against a wall with thesurround spacer attached, the fixing position of
the hook is indicated by ‘X’ inFig. 5a. When the hook is securely
fastened, centre the fire to the hook. Lift the fire up and over the hook
(see‘z’ in Fig. 5c) ensuring that the surround spacer (see ‘w’ in Fig.
5c) engages the hook.
No Spacer attached - Fig. 5b:In the event that the fire is to be
positioned fully inset without thesurround spacer, the fixing position of
the hook is indicated by ‘Y’ (the hook can be positioned on either side
of the fire) inFig. 5b. When the hook is securely fastened, position
the top slot on the fire (seeFig. 5b) alongside the hook, lift the fire up
and over the hook so that the top slot on the fire engages the hook.
The unique flame effect may be enjoyed whether or not the heating
elements are in operation.
The heater controls are located on the canopy.
(On some models, raise the canopy cover to access the controls).
Three switches provide a choice of heat settings.
(On some models, an adjustable thermostat is fitted, enabling the
temperature to be controlled by adjusting the setting accordingly).
A switch is in the ON position when the red indicator mark on the
switch is visible.
Switch 1- Controls the electricity supply to the heater and the
Note: This switch must be in the ON position for the heater to operate.
Switch 2- Provides 1kw heat output.
Switch 3- Provides 2kw heat output with switch 2.
Setting the Thermostat (if supplied)
Plug in and set all switches to ON. Turn the thermostat knob to MAX
to warm the room rapidly. When the room temperature has reached
the desired level, turn the thermostat knob back slowly until the
thermostat just clicks off. The heater will then maintain the room
temperature at the chosen level.
NOTE– Should your heater fail to come on when the thermostat is at
a low setting, this may be due to the room temperature being higher
than the thermostat setting.
