Set up of your bio fireplace
1. Electronic models, with modern and safety hearths
All AFIRE models are fitted with a remote control, on/off button on the top plate and a “dry contact” for home automation applications. Bio ethanol fireplaces are fitted with electronic sensors to automatically stop the burner in the event of abnormal functioning.
Fuel optimisation. An electric pump permanently fills the burner. The tank and the burning block are separated; therefore, the quantity of alcohol used for burning is reduced. Alcohol is perfectly oxygenated in a burning tank isolated from air casings of other parts of the burner.
2. Power supply
The electronic components of your appliance and the pump are required to connect to power supply. The consumption is minimal. The burner works on 12 V. It is supplied with an adapter (100-240 V – 12 V). Connect this adapter to any existing power supply. If you wish, embed electric wires to connect within the opening or use cable management systems.
3. Positioning your fireplace
Fixing the support plate to the wall is the most important phase in the installation of a bio fire. As a matter of fact, this support should bear your fireplace; therefore, a strong fixing with suitable screws and dowels has to be carried out. The support should be perfect and has to be controlled with a proper device. Now connect the adapter and install the bio fireplace on the support. Installation is completed.
4. Filling of the burner and ignition
Press the unlock button of the tank hatch. Remove the cap and fill using a funnel. As soon as the maximum level is reached, a beep sound will alert you, thus avoiding an overflow. Then position the cap and close the hatch. This will lock automatically. All that remains is to press the remote control button.
