I have a heatilator gas fireplace model gcdc60 and the flame is not high anymore. This fireplace has two settings low and high. The high setting is like having low on and the low setting is almost not there. I have removed the logs and vacumed the burner. I even ran it with out the logs to see if flame was restricked. Is it the burner bad or something else


Take a thin stiff wire and run it thru each flame port of the burner a few times each then if you can take a vacuum after setting it right on the ports-tap on the burner with a object while vacuuming it-if that does not work -is there a place that looks like a nut over each flame port? if so spray with a lubricant like WD40 to loose the nut and remove and clean flame ports that way and vacuum it then same way then

The oval burner has only very low flame, even when set on high


Every one of these ranges that I have seen with the oval style burner on them have a smaller flame then the normal round burners. And there is very little difference between the low and high settings. It sounds like what you are experiencing is normal. What the GE repairman was adjusting is called the "simmer stop". There is a small flat head screw inside the burner stem. By turning this screw you can adjust the size of the burner on the low position of the burner knob. This should be adjusted to where the burner still stays on when the knob is at the lowest setting. I do not think that you need the burner repaired. From my experience they are all like that.

Lack of heat


The plates protect the burners and help disperse the flame more evenly across the grill surface. Make sure the tank is completely open (knob on top of tank) and that when the burner is turned up to high, the flames out of the burners are about 1 1/2 to 2" long, mostly blue in color. If they are smaller, and the tank is open all the way, the regulator hose may be defective.
