Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have 2 marco fireplaces model #'s dwf41cf-3 and dwf36cf-3. I am rebuilding the mantle and putting moulding around the surrounding area and need to know the codes relating to how close the mantel and wood work can be to the box.

    I called our building department and they said that manufacture's specs take precidence over code, in fact, for our city, that is code. They want me to find the owner manuels'. Marco no longer has an active web site, and that is why I went to fix it as a source.

The simple answer is that clearances are set by local building code, which is enforced by your local building department.

Call them and ask to speak with a building inspector; he/she can tell you minimum clearances over the phone.

Generally: Minimum firebox clearances for noncombustibles. 16" from firebox opening all around. Hearth (floor) minimum 20" forward of firebox and 8" minimum out from sides of firebox.

CLICK HERE for a visual guide for Mantles.
It depends how far the mantle sticks out from the wall.

Your particular city may have different ordinances and codes pertaining to the Surround and mantle.... especially in older cities. Check with them for your exact numbers.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

    You can use THIS PDF guide from a different manufacturer to get the number you need.

    Look near the bottom (page 18) for insert clearances for combustables.

Yes, i can seem to get an answer on weather my Marco fireplace model # 7927740 can burn gas or wood. I was told it could do both?


The best answer would be to contact Marco or their distributer directly. I have never seen a fireplace that would burn both. I have seen dual-fuel central heating furnaces.

I would not attempt burning wood without input from Marco.

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

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.
