Question about Heating & Cooling
This ventless gas log had this problem years ago, so I replaced the pilot light orifice unit. This fixed it...for a while. When the smell came back, I spoke to technician who told me to blow it out. This worked for while, too; however, the smell came back again. I blew it out again, but it didn't fix the problem. I have removed the orifice and blew it out again and checked with a light. It was clean & clear and was reassembled, but it still has the bad smell. Anything else I can do or does it need replaced again?

Hi David, this sounds to me like an internal problem with incomplete combustion, and this is why you have this continuing smell, as the fuel is not being completely burned off. Even with the main and secondary filters on this type of heater, they can and will pick up matter and cause this type of problem. These are very dependable heaters, and very much worth it to have it serviced by a shop that is near you that can work on this type of heater. To be honest with you, if you are still smelling this petrol, something is not working properly, so I would take it in for a deeper service. After getting this minor problem solved, it is very important to continue to clean the filters as most people will not take the time until they loose all operation and wonder why? So, yes if you can take it in this I recommend, as I am not on site to help you trouble shoot it properly. But, the problem is incomplete combustion due to an obstruction of some king, and with these fumes I wouldn't want you to have what we call is delayed combustion which is not good! I hope this has been of help to you David, and please keep me posted.

I would try calling M & S Service and ask for the technical service department they are very helpful there and can also provide parts.
Master Dist won't help you at all with any technical service questions and they do not give refunds if they sell you the wrong parts.
