LG EARTH STOVE 2800HT User Manual
CARE AND OPERATION
The doorframe is plated with 24-karat industrial grade gold
and requires curing to harden the gold. Once it is cured it
will never tarnish. Prior to burning this appliance the door-
frame should be cleaned thoroughly with a good window
cleaning solution and a soft cloth. Do not use any metal
polishes or abrasives to clean the gold surface. Any oils or
fingerprints left on the gold could become permanent
blemishes if the stove is burned prior to their removal. Af-
ter the first few fires, the gold will cure. The ¾” (19 mm)
diameter door rope gasket is made of highly durable high
temperature resistant material. It must be kept in good
condition. Do not leave the stove burning with the door
ajar or open. Leaving the door ajar or open while the stove
is burning will cause excessive heat build up in the stove
(overfiring) and could ignite surrounding combustibles as
well as damage the stove (such damage is not covered by
the manufacturer's warranty).

tate the handle to the 6:00 position.
The glass is a super heat resistant ceramic that with-
stands continuous temperatures up to 1390° F. This tem-
perature is well beyond the temperatures in which you
operate your fireplace insert.
This appliance is designed to provide a flow of air over the
inside of the glass, where along with high heat helps keep
it clean. When operating the fireplace insert on low for
extended periods of time, the glass may get dirty. A short,
hot fire (15 - 20 minutes) will help clean off much of the
normal buildup (see Troubleshooting, pages 19-20). A
commercial glass cleaner designed for fireplace inserts is
recommended for cleaning.
The glass should be cleaned thoroughly with glass
cleaner and a soft cloth BEFORE the fireplace insert

Your fireplace insert finish is a high temperature paint that
requires time and temperature to completely cure. We rec-
ommend that you ventilate the house during the initial
burns. The paint emits non-toxic odors during this process.

YOUR HOME SMOKE DETECTOR.
The paint manufacturer recommends three burn cycles to
cure the paint. The first two burns should be low heat, ap-
proximately 250°F., for 20 minutes each, using paper and
After each 20-minute burn, allow the appliance to cool com-
pletely. The third burn should be at least medium high or
about 450°F. for 45 - 60 minutes. The paint will become soft
and emit non-toxic haze during these burns. Keep the area
As the paint cures it will become slightly lighter in color.
Eventually the entire surface will become an even color.
Once the paint has been softened and cooled two or three
times, it will harden. Do not turn on a blower during the
Do not place anything on the fireplace insert surface until
the paint is completely cured. Do not attempt to repaint
the fireplace insert until the paint is completely cured. If
the surface later becomes stained or marred, it may be
lightly sanded and touched up with spray paint from the
same paint manufacturer (See Maintenance – Small Area
Paint Touch-up, page 16). Paint is available at your local
authorized Lennox Hearth Products dealer. Never attempt
to paint a hot stove.
