Fuel Effect Fires Ltd 16 NV Fire Manual Wanted

Postby john_o » Fri Apr 15, 2016 11:36 am

Fuel Effect Fires Ltd appear to have gone out of business and I can find no trace of installation instructions or user manuals for their presumably now obsolete gas fires. Can anyone help, please?

Alternatively, can anyone advise me how the 'pebbles' should be laid out? My heating expert tells me that he cannot service the fire properly unless he can put them back in their correct sequence after the grandchildren rearranged them.

Thanks

Peskie grand children!

If you have the make and model you could search a site like this one which stores lots of manuals for old and current heating equipment: http://www.gotogasdocs.co.uk/

John o did you find a copy of the manual for the fuel effects fire 16NV? I am also looking for a copy and can't find one on any of the sites or apps that have manuals.
Many thanks.

Hello

Have just registered so I can post this.
My dad has a coal type Fuel Effect fire and I have copied the manual that came with it.
There seem to be 2 versions, one says Issue 3 and one says Issue 4, both dated 1/9/2003
Here is a download link to the Issue 3 pdf: I will scan the other when I can. The link will be usable for 1 week. If anyone wants it after that I can repost.
**Apologies** for the copious scribbled notes and food stains (my dad does not believe in eating off plates...)

Hello Sam Lowry, I too cannot find a manual for my mother in-law's Hotbox 16NV fire. She has just called me in a panic because someone told her that it was unsafe to use without a glass front - which I don't think it had when it was new! I would be very grateful indeed if you could re-post. Many thanks!

Hi Sam
Can you repost this link as I am also in need of a Fuel Effect fire instruction manual for fuel layout for my gas servicing engineer.
Thanks

Hi Sam Lowry,
Would you be so kind as to post up the PDF again as I'm in desperate need of the manual - heating engineer requires manual to be able to service gas fire and re-arrange the coals. Also any information about where to get the remote control for it would be appreciated. many thanks, Jacky
p.s. first time used this site so hope that it will notify me if anyone replies and notify Sam too of this request ?

Hi, did anyone manage to get hold of one of these manuals? My plumber removed them on a gas safety check and doesn't know how to put them back. Both fires have now been condemned!

Dear DougMxxx and thedoctor,
So so sooooooooooooooooooo grateful to you both for taking the trouble to scan and to post both the full and abridged versions. I'm sure they'll be other people in this thread who've either inherited fires like this or who've lost their instructions will echo my sentiments. You are both top gents. Thank you ! Jacky xxx
