Vacuum up all the ash and clean up around the burner specially where the holes are at from the wall. it needs fresh air for the gas to burn properly. your step just had to take another step cuz he was on the right path LOL

Thanks for your Question,
Black soot is the by product of incomplete combustion, with Propane you will get alot more soot than with Natural gas, you need to look at how the flame are hitting your log set, if you have alot of soot on them you will need to reposition them as to not let the flame impinge on them causing the sooting affect, you will also need to check the burner for any type of blockage on them, clear off any thing that is on them, also you will need to check your venting for any blockage, I would also recommened you use a product called (rutland white off) it is a fantastic cleaner for fireplace glass, please do not use windex or cleaners of that type as they will cause a rainbow affect on the glass after heating to a certian point, hope this was helpful to ya, please rate this and let us know how we did, thanks again,

I have a King Pellet Stove 5510, I think the ignitor is out. It's going to be cold tonight and until I can get a new ignitor, can I start the pellets with something else.


If you have a hand held bottled type, propane torch, you could carefully try that. However, never ever use any type of liquid starter, like charcoal lighter fluid, kerosene, etc. All you want to do, is get a cup or so of pellets started burning hotly and let the auger take over feeding the fire from there.

Be extremely careful doing this.

Hope this helps you stay warm tonight.

an open fireplace is not going to heat your house only 5 feet in front of the fire place. 75% of the heat goes out your chimney and burns the wood very fast. sorry to say but if you are looking for heat you installed the wrong unit!

I would like to buy one but I want to make sure it works for ice--the only reason I need the dual turbo propane torch kit


Ice doesn't argue much with any heat. Get one of those propane torches they use for roofinfing and heating tar,or burning weeds. I think I paid 29.00 and it puts out a wall of fire an iceburg would run from. Pardon the pun "run"

Black soot on Coleman propane burner


Had same problem. Coleman tech support said, " clean with pipe cleaners". No directions....I would think they would provide a step by step protocol. So, I chose to take the knobs off and use the pipe cleaner where I could. I was able to take one of the two burner control knobs apart. After sticking the clean in every nook I could find, I put back together, and the flame on that burner is back to normal,

Good Luck--Daryl in Burnsville, MN
