Intertherm Fireplace - Model BM36HCD

Gentlemen,
My wife would like me to put gas (lp) logs in our fireplace and stop burning wood. All the information I have does not tell me how to do it safely in an existing fire place.... I do commercial heating and air but this one leaves me set back some as to not knowing where to start. My gas inlet for our logs is on the right side and the fireplace sits in the corner on two walls.

Any help will be welcomed.

Best Regards,
Brent Kahl

Blade on fireplace heat o lator appears to be turning the wrong way. Heat does not come out of the top of the fireplace. What do I do to be able to take out the heat o later and reverse the fan?


Roger. it depends of whether this is a Gas Fireplace or a Wood Burning Fireplace?

If it's a direct vent gas fireplace, the blower was installed incorrectly. To access the blower, you will have to dismantle most of the interior of the firebox and the burner tray (Interior floor of the firebox). This will involve disconnecting the gas line from the burner. The blower is on the floor of the control compartment and is attached to the rear wall of the control compartment. Whoever installed it, has it aimed in the wrong direction. Which is can of hard to do, since there is an arrow on it, pointing in the UP direction. Once you unplug it, you can take out the sheet metal screws that hold it in place, and it will be quite obvious which way the exhaust should face. Which is UP.

Now that I've told you how to do all of that, I must be totally honest, by telling you, the blower will not increase it's efficiency. Your Direct Vent Gas Fireplace is rated as a Decorative Gas Appliance only. It is not heater rated. In fact, 80 % of all the heat goes out the direct vent. The only real heat, is generated off the glass, once it's hot.

So now, you get the chance to make the decision. With all that's involved, is worth changing the blower and not really gain anything?

If you have a wood burning, brick fireplace Heat-a-Lator, just turning the fan motor around, so that it's pulling air into the chamber, will solve the problem.

I really hope all of this has helped you. If I can be of further assistance please let me know. Thanks.

I have a valve on the wall with a Hearthmaster key. In the fireplace is a long tube with slits cut every 5". Is this a gas fireplace or what?


From what you described, it sounds like a homemade gas log lighter for a masonry, wood burning fireplace. The Key in the wall is to turn the gas on and off. With that said, no it's not a gas fireplace per se. It's used to light firewood. However, if you don't want to burn wood (with all the fuss, muss & dust. You may be able to install a 99.9% efficient, Vent-free Gas Log Set, by using the existing gas line.

However, it's not a case of one size fits all. You will need to know the following concerning the interior of your firebox: Width, Height, Depth (from the center of the opening to the rear wall of the firebox, on the floor of the firebox) and the Width at the back. And the final dimension (if you have a wood mantle) The distance from the top of the opening of the firebox to the bottom of the mantle shelf. If it's less than 18", Code requires a heat deflector hood to be installed to the top of the opening of the firebox, to direct the heat down and away from the mantle.

Generally speaking, I do not recommend this as a DIY project, If you decide to pursue this, contact a professional in your area that sells and installs Vent-free Gas Log Sets. That way, you'll be able to determine which BTU Output is suitable for your application. They're usually in the Yellow Pages under Fireplaces.

Two pieces of advice:

1. When it comes to BTU Output more is not better. Gas is a warm moist heat, that you'll feel very quickly and it's very comfortable. You actually can do more with less.

2. Avoid Ceramic Fiber Logs. They are very fragile and do not hold heat and radiate it back into the room. Stick with Refractory Concrete Logs. They are heavy and very durable. They get hot hold heat and radiate back into to the room, even after the burner is turned off.

Everything I have told you is based on by 15 years in the hearth business.

Can one use unvented gas logs in a superior CF3860 fireplace?I


Little documentation on this fireplace but it appears to be a vented wood-burner(?) If vented, there should be no problem using gas logs. If burning correctly, you may consider cutting back on the flue and intake air, as moisture build-up is the biggest drawback to gas fireplaces. Too much air is just wasting gas.

How do we install a burner on a fireplace?


Thinking of adding a fireplace or wood stove to your home? If so, proper installation and maintenance is absolutely critical to ensuring the fire stays inside your freestanding fireplace or wood stove and doesn't venture outside of it.

If your manufactured home already has a fireplace or wood stove, it's a good idea to go look over these safety guidelines to confirm that it was installed correctly. If you plan to install a fireplace or wood stove, follow these safety guidelines carefully.

First, don't try to tackle this project yourself. While installation manuals usually provide all the instructions necessary for a manufactured home owner to install a wood-burning fireplace or wood stove, the consequences of a mistake are so disastrous, it's a task best left to experts.

It's a good idea to first check with your insurance company for their guidelines before installing these items. Your insurance policy may not cover damages if a fireplace or wood stove was not professionally installed. Plus, the manufacturer's warranty on the fireplace or wood stove may not apply unless the unit is installed by a professional.
