The Kingsman Zero Clearance Direct Vent Fireplaces are highly efficient inserts with flame sensors that constantly monitor the pilot flame and provide 100% gas shut off if the pilot is not sensed. This feature has contributed to the increased safety of gas inserts, making it a major consideration during purchase.
Like most Kingsman Fireplaces inserts, they come with a safety screen barrier and a brilliant Millivolt/IPI valve system that allows operation even in the case of power failure. The flame pattern of the dual burner coupled with the available log sets creates a more convincing and life-like feel to the insert.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Do Gas Fireplace Inserts Work?
Gas fireplace inserts are fireproof combustion boxes made of steel and insulated glass that burn natural or propane gas, therefore radiating heat and warmth into your living spaces. Gas fireplace inserts are more efficient than the traditional fireplace, leaving you with clean indoor air quality and maximum performance. They also come with realistic artificial log sets and rocks for a more natural look.
How Long Do Fireplace Inserts Last?
Fireplace inserts have a lifespan of between 10 -20 years. With proper maintenance, they could last longer. However, most fireplace models will require the replacement of defective parts after an average of ten years of use. With heavy use, accessories such as log sets may require replacement every 3-5 years.
How to Light Kingsman Fireplaces Gas Inserts?
Since these inserts use gas, care should be taken to ensure that there are no leakages at any point. In case of any leakages or smell of gas, open all windows, do not use any electrical devices, and immediately call your gas supplier or the fire department from the neighbor’s phone.
For Electronic Ignition
The Kingsman Fireplaces gas inserts with IPI are equipped with an ignition device that automatically lights the pilot. To light it, first, remove the batteries from the receiver and the battery backup pack. Switch off all the electric power to the insert then open the glass door. After that, turn the manual shutoff valve behind the access panel clockwise to ‘OFF’.
Wait for 5 minutes to clear out any gas, then smell for gas to ensure there are no leakages. If you do not smell gas, turn the manual shutoff valve counter-clockwise to ‘ON’. Afterwards, close the glass door, turn on all electric power to the fireplace and re-install batteries into the Transmitter/Receiver, and the Battery Backup Pack. Finally, turn the “On” switch that operates the Main Burner.
For the Millivolt System
The appliances with the Millivolt system have a pilot which must be lighted by hand. When lighting the pilot, set the thermostat to the lowest setting, then turn off all electrical power to the appliance. Locate the valve under the burner assembly and ensure that the control knob is in the off position by pushing in the gas control knob slightly and turning it clockwise to “OFF”.
Thereafter, wait five minutes to clear out any gas, then smell for any leakages. If there is no smell of gas, push in the control knob slightly and turn it counter-clockwise to the “PILOT” position. Push in the control knob all the way and hold it. With the other hand, push in the red igniter button until you hear a click.
Keenly observe the pilot burner located on the rear center-left hand side of the main burner. Once a flame appears, continue to depress the control knob for 20 seconds. If the flame doesn’t appear, continue to depress the red igniter button every 5 seconds until a flame is formed.
Once the pilot is established, hold the control knob in the depressed position for approximately 25 seconds before releasing it. Turn the control knob to the “ON” position. The burner will not light unless the wall switch thermostat or remote control is turned “ON”, or in the case of the thermostat, there is a call for heat. Finally, close the access door and turn all electrical power back to the appliance.
