    I have recently moved house and have a gas fire in the living room that is deactivated. I called the local gas safe fitter to give me advice about whether or not it could be reactivated. He told me that he had deactivated it as he couldnt find any information about the fire or a manufactures label, with the information he needs. With the help of the local fireplace shop I have located the manufactures label and identified the fire as a Flambeau 355 NG remote. I understand that this company no longer trades. However, I would really like to find a user manual for this fire to ensure that the pebbles are in the correct locations and that everything else is where it should before having it reactivated. I have searched the internet to the best of my ablity and called all of the local shops but to no avail.

    So this is my last attempt before giving up and replacing the fire, does anyone here have access to a Flambeau 355 NG manual?

    I’m not familiar with this appliance, but if it’s a dfe fire, it’s not a good idea to use, if the gas fitter is not happy with the information available.

    It may seem the fitter is not helpful, but in today’s world, if anything goes bad, it’s his fault!

    The manufacturers instructions out rank the gas regulations, so its vital to have them available.

    Obviously the flue will need testing no matter what you choose to install.

    Hi Peter,

    Absolutely right, if the gas fitter isn't happy I wont be attempting to have it reactivated. He is of the opinion that it all looks fine but need to confirm with the manual, which I still can't locate. I have also had the flue tested and that works well.
