Question about Napoleon 36" Zero Clearance Top/Rear Vent Natural Gas Fireplace with Black Door
I have a gas fireplace taht puts out a lot of black soot, however I do have propane to the house. My fireplace has black soot on the glass and it also has made my mantel and wall above the fireplace black. The stuff is like a cancer and sticks to everything. What is it, and how do i fix the fireplace so that it does not put out that black stuff.
Remove the burner and clean all holes ,typically at the end of the burner is a cheep sheet metal valve.This valve adjusts the air to gas mixture by rotating it to increase or decrease the combustible air intake.Air must be sucked into the burner as natural gas is injected into it, this makes for a clean flame,The flame should be blue with small yellow tips.If the flame is long and yellow and sooty increase the air intake on the burner valve.

In order to change or "convert" your Natural Gas fireplace to Propane there are several parts that need to be changed. First you need a part called an oriface. There is one for each burner (you may or may not have more than one) and one for the pilot. There may also be a pressure regulator somewhere in the pilot system. Some fireplace units require the entire burner and or pilot assembly to be changed. You also have to change the pressure regulator on the main gas valve, once again your unit may require you to change the entire valve. The fireplace manufacturer or the store where the fireplace was purchased will have to tell you what the parts are. This is a pretty technical process. If you do not get the pressures correct in the conversion your sooting problem will continue. Depending on your skill level you may want to call a fireplace professional. But be sure he/she knows what they are doing. Some service people can't get a conversion right.
