Vermont Castings Gas Radiance B Vent Stove

I am looking to buy a gently used Vermont Castings Gas Radiance B Vent Stove that is a top vent. I want to install it and vent it into an existing 35" tall fireplace opening and up the chimney (no furnace in this chimney). Is this possible? I read in the manual for the Model 2600 that it is possible to reverse the flue collar from top exiting to rear exiting. Would this work for my fireplace opening? Thank you!

SOURCE: i boughta vermont castings model

It the opening on the stove is on top of the stove, it's a 'B' vent. If the opening is in the back of the stove it's a "Direct Vent". However, some models have a connection on the back that's facing up,. A 90 degree elbow can be used to convert it to a horizontal run to enter an existing chimney, but then it must elbow up to connect to the pipe that is required to line the chimney. You should not just stop the pipe above the damper. It needs to run all the way to the top of the chimney, then have flashing seal the chimney's clay liner and a termination cap on the top.

here is a link to the Owners Manual/Installation Instructions for a Model 2600. It installs the same way as the 2610. http://homeappliance.manualsonline.com/mdownloads/62b85343-a800-4898-85a1-3d6d3c524259.pdf

Hope this helps you sort things out and do a proper installation.

I bought a Vermont Casting Radiance Model 2240 Gas Stove 10 years ago. The fan makes a horrible noise. I have a manual, but the fan page says the fan is optional and page 1 is missing. Also page 2 is...


Finding an match to your Owners Manual is difficult at best. As, Vermont Castings has gone through 2 different corporate ownerships in 10 years. However, for the most part, their castings and the mechanics for the Radiance model have pretty much stayed the same. This gas stove was manufactured in a Vented and a more efficient Vent-Free model. The installation of the fan was different for each model. Since you didn't specify whether you have a Vented or Vent-free model have included the Owners Manual for both. Keep in mind, these manuals are for the stoves that currently being produced, but the installation is very similar. You will be removing the blower rather than installing it, so do everything in reverse.

Vented Model http://literature.mhsc.com/vermont_castings/manuals/30004967_RADVTCS_5.pdf

Vent-free Model http://literature.mhsc.com/vermont_castings/manual/30005056_Radiance_VF_5.pdf

If you need to replace the blower, you can purchase one from an authorized VC dealer in your area. To find one go to http://www.vermontcastings.com/contact.asp

Mr. Whaley, I hope this helps solve your problem.

Vermont Casting Radiance Gas Stove (RUVSOD) NG to Propane (LP)


Unfortunaletly, due to the delicate nature of vent-free appliances, you'll find that most are not field convertable. If the vent free appliance were to lose its efficiency, you would be subjected to high levels of CO, carbon monoxide, and could likely die. Therefore, field conversion is not recommended and in this case, not possible. Vermont Castings does not provide parts to convert and if they did you would be essentially replacing the entire unit short of the outer cast shell. I wish you luck.
