How do we fix a remote control for a Direct Vent Fireplace?


check to see if you have a resettable dip swith in the venting system, if you do have one, press it once, it should then come on. also make sure the gas valve is in the on position and not just in the pilot position,. Also after being off all summer season, sometimes a slitgh tap on the gas control is all it needs to dislodge the magnetic pilot plunger.

Its to hot


Are the flames more than a couple of inches high? Do they have a lot of yellow coloring to them? Please be sure that the orifice for the fireplace is converted to the proper gas type. A common mistake is to have a natural gas orifice in a LP fireplace. The flames are way too high and the heat is very intense and this creates a very unsafe fire hazard situation. You may want to have a qualified technician come out and examine the fireplace for you.

Elco fireplace blower wont work


If your blower/fan blows air into a "box" with tubes that conduct heated air out through the screen, that assembly may have failed. I had one that burned out and had to be replaced.

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.

I have the honeywell round thermostat #, CT87K. I am trying to wire it up to controla gas fireplace. I have two wires coming from the fireplace I have tried every combination of wires. it will turn the...


That Thermostat will not work on a gas fireplace. The voltage is all wrong. You need a thermostat that will work on millivolts generated by the thermopile on the pilot assembly of the fireplace burner. It will only turn on, because you opened the circuit. It will not turn it off automatically or at all, for that matter.

Better yet, why don't you purchase a Wireless Remote Control that has a thermostat built-in. It's a multifunction remote that will work up to 25 feet from the fireplace and comes with a wall hanger. The SkyTech # 3301TH, should work well for you. http://www.skytechsystem.com/

I have a black soot on all my walls through the whole house especially the exterior walls. I believe it is caused by my propane fireplace. Im not sure if it is not ventilating properly or what the problem...


Is a Vented or Vent-free gas fireplace? I really suspect it's Vent-free (ventless) as a vented unit, unless the direct vent is clogged exhaust everything, including 85% of the heat out side.

Here are the things that will cause a Vent-free Gas Fireplace to soot.

  • Not having the fireplace cleaned and serviced, at least annually by a qualified technician.
  • Misplaced logs that impinge the main burner flames.
  • Running a ceiling fan at the wrong speed and in the wrong direction while fireplace is burning.
  • Burning scented candles while burning the fireplace.
  • Low Gas Pressure to the burner.
Here are the solutions to the above listed causes:

  • Have the fireplace cleaned and serviced.
  • Check your Owners Manual concerning the proper placement of each log,
  • Run the ceiling fan Counter Clockwise and at the slowest speed. The fan on the side of the switch should be in the UP position for Winter and Down for Summer.
  • Scented candles soot any way. Add the warm moist heat of the Gas Fireplace and they'll soot 50 times worse. The scent is not natural, it has an alcohol base like after shave & cologne. Stop burning scented candles. It has been proven that they greatly contribute to indoor air pollution.
  • Low gas pressure causes incomplete combustion, which causes the burner to soot. Have it checked by your propane provider.
Based on my 15 years in the hearth and home business and having sold and installed hundreds of these appliances, I am will to bet, it's a cleaning and servicing issue or misplaced logs.

Hope this helps you solve your sooting problem. I woud really like to know how it works out for you.

Gas logs while turned on seem to fade, nearly go


you must keep the burner and the pilot light area clean and free of dust also,the area where your burner gets air most of the time it has an adjustment to give it more or less air.I have had my dyna glo vent free model for 8 years.A good cleaning in late fall with low pressure air and 1 or 2 times through the winter depending on conditions of use.

Montego gas fireplace


There is a product that I use when servicing gas fireplaces that works pretty good. Google search "Rutland White Off". In a lot of cases it takes just about everything off and the glass looks brand new. If it went to long without being cleaned, it could be permanently baked into the glass. As far as removing the glass, every manufacturer uses there own style of clip. Check around the bottom of the fireplace where the controls are for a latch or possibly screws that are holding it in place, sorry, without looking at it, it's pretty hard to answer that part of your question
