The fuel mix it too rich. There should be a place where the gas hose goes into the burner part, and an adjustment where you can adjust how much air it gets. The flame should be almost 100% blue. It can make the grates glow another color, but the flame should be mostly blue.

What does the thermocouple look like?


Note that sooting with yellow flame is the result of insufficient air (i.e. oxygen) mixing with the propane gas. You need to identify where do you open the orifice or neck where the propane gas is released to burner. Open this orifice wider to add more air mixture to your propane and you should be able to get the flame back to bluish color.

Best of luck.

My propane fireplace has recently began to produce black soot that is coming out of the fireplace and covering the walls and ceiling. This has never been a problem in the past and I really need to know...


Hi, sounds like you could have an obstruction. Check the entire stack for bird nesting materials or debris. The propane, when it burns, should not produce any soot. My guess is that something else is burning in your chimney stack and if it is blocked, it will come into you room. Once you remove the debris, you should attach some wire mesh around the exit to avoid any heat seeking animals from nesting again. Hope this helps.

I have black soot coming out of my gas wall heater and the vent on the roof is all black too. Not sure the age of it, could be up to 50 years.


You need to have a service company come in and service your heater. #1 it needs to be cleand. #2 They need to do a thorough check out of your heating system. I can not stress this enough; your flue and heat exchanger are blocking up and you are at risk for carbon monoxide poisining.

What causes black soot to smoke up our complete house with ventless logs


Hi,
Take the pilot and burnner assembly all apart and blow it out with compressed air then reassemble and make sure that the air shutter is totally open. The soot is cause by a bad air/fuel misture that is too rich and cause carbon to form from incomplete combustion. If the burner continues to make soot then reduce the gas pressure to the gas log at the pressure regulator.

Is this unit originally set up for natural gas? If so, the burner oriface and the gas valve need to be retro-fitted to propane. This is something only a qualified service technician should attempt as an incorrect retro-fit could cause an explosion resulting in someone getting hurt or even killed.
