Fireplace with Eurosit gas valve. Pilot is lit but fireplace only kicks on if an ice pack is applied to the probe.

icing at the jet indicates that there is liquid gas at that point and as it tries to boil off into gas the surrounding humidity is freezing the hole (jet)
get a gas appliance fitter in to check the regulator and the system for faults and go from there

Nordyne heat pump

It sounds like either the compressor valves have failed or the rev valve has stuck in one position. You don't mention if you looked at the operating pressures of the compressor that information would help.

Blade on fireplace heat o lator appears to be turning the wrong way. Heat does not come out of the top of the fireplace. What do I do to be able to take out the heat o later and reverse the fan?

Roger. it depends of whether this is a Gas Fireplace or a Wood Burning Fireplace?

If it's a direct vent gas fireplace, the blower was installed incorrectly. To access the blower, you will have to dismantle most of the interior of the firebox and the burner tray (Interior floor of the firebox). This will involve disconnecting the gas line from the burner. The blower is on the floor of the control compartment and is attached to the rear wall of the control compartment. Whoever installed it, has it aimed in the wrong direction. Which is can of hard to do, since there is an arrow on it, pointing in the UP direction. Once you unplug it, you can take out the sheet metal screws that hold it in place, and it will be quite obvious which way the exhaust should face. Which is UP.

Now that I've told you how to do all of that, I must be totally honest, by telling you, the blower will not increase it's efficiency. Your Direct Vent Gas Fireplace is rated as a Decorative Gas Appliance only. It is not heater rated. In fact, 80 % of all the heat goes out the direct vent. The only real heat, is generated off the glass, once it's hot.

So now, you get the chance to make the decision. With all that's involved, is worth changing the blower and not really gain anything?

If you have a wood burning, brick fireplace Heat-a-Lator, just turning the fan motor around, so that it's pulling air into the chamber, will solve the problem.

I really hope all of this has helped you. If I can be of further assistance please let me know. Thanks.

We seem to have a draft at the bottom of our gas fireplace and the glass is frosted up we are in canada and it is 30 some below today, could that be why.

You did not mention if the fireplace is on..... If not, it sounds like combustion air intake may be letting air back in, which may not be an issue, except for how cold it is where you are.....IF this air is coming in, I would think that your relative humidity, in your home, and the cold air would cause the condition that you describe....

Can one use unvented gas logs in a superior CF3860 fireplace?I

Little documentation on this fireplace but it appears to be a vented wood-burner(?) If vented, there should be no problem using gas logs. If burning correctly, you may consider cutting back on the flue and intake air, as moisture build-up is the biggest drawback to gas fireplaces. Too much air is just wasting gas.
