Open the door to the gas control, look for a sticker on the door or on a piece of metal connected to a small length of chain. The should be there. If not, do a google on Majestic Fireplace lighting Instructions.

Even if it was a wood burning fireplace from the beginning & was converted to gas ?


Now that's a LOT of additional information. I hesitated to answer your question the way it was worded originally.... IF in fact it is a masonry chimney and originally built to burn wood, you should have a chimney sweep do a thorough inspection of the flue to ensure it is safe to use again. Flue temperatures, while burning wood, EASILY exceed 1200 degrees whereas natural gas flue temps are in the 450 degree range.

It also should have a clay tile liner and not be fabricated of brick only. The unsafe thing of an unlined brick chimney or a chimney with a severely cracked liner has to do with unburned gases condensing within the inner surfaces of the chimney. Some of those gases are moist and will condense on the inner surface and eventually have an unsafe build up that can be ignited by an oversized flame or excessive sparks causing a flue fire. During a flu fire, temperatures exced 2000 degrees and an unlined BRICK flue of that age could have lost some mortar allowing superheated gasses to seep into the crevices. Those superheated gasses then explode when igniged by the flue fire and either do extreme damage to the flue, blow the entire chimney apart or in the worst case scenario burn your house down.

I'm sure you've seen houses burnt and the chimney was left standing....but you have also seen damaged houses with the chimneys blown off the end of the house and laying in rubble toppled out into the yard. The latter visual picture was an example of the end result of the gasses exploding. If the chimney was inside the house instead of on the end of the house, the house would have been burnt also.

There is a lot to be careful about when heating with wood and to start off safely you need to have your chimney inspected and the gas components removed with the gas line capped EXTERNAL of the fireplace.

Why does my blazeking wood burning stove get creasote in the fire box and how do i get it out?


Hi Darlene,
Creosote consists of combustion byproducts,[smoke] that gradually builds up in the stove & chimney.MOISTURE in the wood,and slow burning greatly increase build-up. 1/4 '' of creosote is considered a hazard. Consult a professional chimney sweep,then burn only 'seasoned' dry hardwood,and when you start or re-kindle the fire,burn it hot enough to thoroughly heat the flue; this will draw the smoke up the chimney faster,decreasing the time build-up can occur. Stay Warm!

If the stack blower (fan) does not start when you select heat, the fan control may be defective. If the igniter does not heat up long enough to cause the thermocouple to open the gas valve and fire the burner, the igniter is defective. If the igniter heats long enough but the burner doesn't fire up, the thermocouple is defective.

Sirocco eco 3 gas fire. Flames burning ignition cable


Yellow flames is lack of air blocked burner ,blocked injector , low gas pressure .

I would put a smoke pellet up the chimney to see if you have a pull on the chimney to see if it is not blocked , or if you have down draught what sort of pot are you thinking of putting on the top ?

I want to know what a lever in a fire place is


The lever at the top of the fireplace operates the "damper". The damper is a door that opens the fireplace to the outside via the chimney.

The damper must remain open whenever a fire is burning in the fireplace to allow smoke to escape out the chimney instead of filling the fireplace and eventually, the room. The damper should be opened prior to starting a fire, otherwise the handle will be too hot to handle. Once the fire has gone completely out, the damper should be closed to prevent heat from being drawn out of the room / home. You can easily check is your damper is open or closed by simply looking up the chimney. If dark, it is closed. If light(er) it is open. Do not operate the damper while looking up - as dirt, soot, rust, etc. can fall when doing so.

The damper also prevents pests from enter the room / home. It is not uncommon for birds, bats squirrels, etc. from creating a home / getting caught in side the chimney.

I hope this helps - good luck!

Hi,

You will need to install a flue liner ( i know its a nuisance) to allow the products of combustion to escape as quickly and as safely as possible.

If you installed a gas appliance without a liner, due to the temperature of the flue gases (lower than solid fuel) the emissions would struggle to exit via the flue terminal.

If you install the appliance following the manufacturers instructions, you cannot go wrong. The other recommendation is get a 'Gas Safe' engineer to carry out the commssioning/testing.(house insurance void if not certified)

I hope this helps.

Propane patio heater ignition problem


I would change the thermocouple and here is why:

The thermocouple is the pilot's, well, co-pilot! It is the electronic device that senses if the pilot flame is hot enough to sustain burning the gas fuel from the burner. If the thermocouple thinks it's safe, then it keeps open the main gas valve located in the pilot assembly. If the thermocouple does not sense enough heat from the pilot flame (such as when the pilot is out), then the thermocouple shuts off the gas valve to the burners.
How the Thermocouple Works
So what is this thing and how does it work? Well the thermocouple (technically called a thermocouple junction) is a device that contains two metal wires welded at the ends and placed inside a protective metal case. The thermocouple sensor is found at the business end of the pilot flame and is designed to be placed in the hottest part of the flame. The other end is connected to the pilot valve body. As the thermocouple heats up, it produces a small amount of electricity and when it gets hot enough from the pilot, send a signal to open the gas valve by using a solenoid operated by a 24 volt transformer. The thermocouple calls the shots, and by converting heat to an electrical signal, it allows the gas valve to open or close. Once the gas valve is open, gas is then constantly supplied to the pilot and as required for the gas burners (as called for by the thermostat). If the pilot goes out, then the thermocouple gets cold and produces no electric signal to open the gas valve's solenoid and the gas valve shuts off the gas supply to the pilot and burners

IAM TRYING TO REMOVE A RAYBURN 80 FIRE


Assuming you are using natural gas to light the fire in your fireplace, is the pipe black iron gas pipe, regular galvanized pipe, or copper?

Is there a cut-off valve probably located just before the chimney, that is in-line with the pipe?

You do understand there is no fire in the pipe, but gas, right?

Removing natural gas pipes that are not properly isolated from the rest of the gas pipes is not a task for someone with no experience in this area.

Sometimes the gas must be shut off at the main, and then all your pilots will go out inside the house, in your range, hot water heater, etc, assuming they run on natural gas.

The excess gas in the pipe must be bled to the atmosphere if the main must be shut off, and then the proper pressure must be established prior to lighting pilots and/or appliances.

I highly recommend that you call a service man from a gas company to come out and do this for you. He will have the proper equipment and gauges if they are needed.
