Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

We have a marco df 41d fireplace. The manual says it can be converted to gas with the installation of a gas line and gas logs. We don't have a non combustible hearth, do we need to add one?

SOURCE: Marco gas fireplace shuts off

This an easy fix. What you must do is remove the dust from the pilot safety. I use rust buster from ace hardware to gently flush the hole. If ther is no hole just shoot a tiny drop or 2 into the pilot burner where the flame comes out. Blow it out (I use a piece of tubing). The problem is the dust drops the pilot flame to a point where it won't heat the thermocouple hot enough to jold the magnet and after 30 minutes she quits. THIS is a picture of where to clean the ODS pilots in your rig.

Dan Webster's pilot fix worked. Pilot now is blue and stays lit. Main burner still does not fire, so next step is new thermocouple.

I have a gaz fireplace Marco DWF36CF-3 vented and would like to know if i can burn wood in it


Hello,
My name is mike. YOU DO NOT want to attempt to burn wood in a gas fireplace. The reason for it, is the venting is not designed for the fumes and high heat the wood produces. Only way you can safely burn wood, in a gas fireplace is have to make sure the piping and venting is set up correct to burn wood. Your problem is not most likely your stove or fireplace for the safety, it would be your venting. Thanks Mike

Unfortunately, you didn't list the model number of your fireplace and whether it's vented or vent-free. However, I suspect it's vented, as MARCO (now out of business) manufactured very few vent-free models. Restoration is going to depend on the condition of the burners, as well as the gas control valve and the condition of the firebox. The small ports you mentioned, are for the Rock Wool (Glowing Embers), which are divided into small pieces (dime size) and fluffed, then placed over the small ports. MARCO did not make a vented fireplace where silica sand was used on top of the burners. Normally, you only see that on vented gas log set, that is installed in a solid fuel burning (masonry) fireplace and operated with the damper fully open.

As far as restoration parts are concerned, I seriously doubt there are any available. MARCO, as such, has been out of business for almost 10 years. Today's burners are not designed for the same configuration that you have. It wouldn't be wise to try to change the configuration, as the firebox was tested and approved for only what's in there now.

Wish I had better news for you. But, my 15 years in the hearth and home business, tells me it would difficult and costly to do.

when the gas logs were installed the vent damper should have disabled. it sounds like this was done.it is unsafe to close the damper with gas piped into the fire place. sometimes a "u" block will be placed over the damper blade. if the gas has been removed and not piped into the firebox anymore it would be safe to remove this

Marco gas firplace


I have a Model 792864B. Before you attempt to light the pilot light - make sure that any wall control switch or remote control for the fireplace is in the off position. Locate the gas supply line. There should be a gas supply valve to turn on the gas supply. The valve is usually painted a different color than the supply line like blue, green or yellow. Open the valve by pivoting the handle to be parallel to the gas line, usually counter-clockwise. When it is closed it is at a 90 degree angle from the supply line. Locate the pilot light assembly - this is the pilot light. There should also be a red or black ignitor button and a black or green valve control knob with the words "on" "off" and "pilot" on it. It may be located inside a black box, mine is marked heatolator, that has a lift off top. Lift off the top of the box. Push in the valve control knob and turn it until the word "pilot" is in line with the arrow (my arrow is red) or indicator line. While pressing and holding in the valve control knob - it presses in about 1/4", press the red or black ignitor button repeatedly (once per second) until the pilot ignites. Once the pilot is lit, continue to hold the valve knob in for about 30 seconds and then slowly release. The pilot should remain lit. If it remains lit, press in and turn the valve control knob to the "on" position. The on/off wall or remote control switch should now light your fireplace. If the pilot doesn't ignite, turn off gas supply valve, wait about 5 minutes and try it again.
