I had this problem. From using the center brick most of the time, lots of dust bunnies build up in the gas chimney behind the brick.
Tie 2 pipe cleaners together with a small perpendicular circle at the top and carefully remove the dust bit by bit by twirling the cleaner.
The brick should fire like new if it is carefully cleaned out.

It sounds like that center brick may have a crack in it. Generally if you have a crack in one you will have to get all the bricks replaced, because they did not make a replacement part for just one plaque. I suggest you concact Master Parts at 800-446-1446 or you can find them online at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps you!

Combustion needs air mix in the correct proportion to burn efficiently-also gas supply may be stronger on the outlet side of burner causing an imbalance-chech for obstruction in either area-cheers Denny

My flame is above the guard on the heater in the middle flame. How do I adjust the flame to be lower?


this is happening because the bricks need cleaning. I imagine the flame is burning blue instead of glowing red in the middle brick. Contact your local propane or natural gas dealer about getting the heater cleaned. This type of problem causes a huge loss of efficiency and could be dangerous.
