Pilot Lighting Instructions for Napoleon Gas Fireplaces

For Your Safety, Read Before Lighting:

  • A. This fireplace is equipped with a pilot which must be lit by hand. Lighting instructions must be followed exactly.
  • B. Before operating, smell all around the fireplace area for gas and next to the floor because some gas is heavier than air and will settle on the floor.
  • C. Use only your hand to turn the gas control knob. Never use tools. If the knob will not turn by hand, do not try to repair it; call SUNDANCE Energy for a qualified service technician. Force or attempted repair may result in a fire or explosion.
  • D. Do not use fireplace if any part has been under water. Call SUNDANCE Energy to inspect the fireplace and replace any part of the control system and any gas control which has been immersed.
