Right is off. Turn all the way counter clockwise. Or 3/4 the way. Doesn't matter how far you open the valve.

The valve is lined up with the line and it's on and it's off if it's crossing the line, 1/2 a turn and it won'r go all the way around any way.

How do you correctly place logs if no direction in gas fireplace?


If you have to tap the gas valve one or more of the diaphragms/springs in it are sticking, which would account for no difference between low and high.

My vented gas firs place keep gping into flame lift off. Hos do i fix this flame lift off. My gas log pro says i have to take the box out.??


I would suggest looking under the bottom louver of your fireplace as you have a b-vent or direct vent gas fireplace. From the looks of it alone it appears as its an early model Heat-N-Glo fireplace. If you flip down the bottom panel, where the two gold strips are at, underneath the gas valve you will find a sticker or a plate that has the model, manufacturer, and serial number. I work for a manufacturer that has been in the fireplace business for over 30 years and I'm betting $10 to a donut that is a Heat-N-Glo fireplace. Once you get the model, manufactuer, serial number, and date code sometimes you can search at www.heatnglo.com for AUTHORIZED dealers who can service your fireplace properly instead of a chimney sweep who may or may not be qualified to "trouble shoot" what is going on with the fireplace. It looks like an 8000GDV to me.
Best guess is a new pilot assembly if its a direct vent. If its a b-vent then a high limit switch might be needed as well with it cutting off that fast. It also could be a flue disconnect. Long story short I would find out the model, manufacturer, and then get on the manufacturer's website or call them to find out an AUTHORIZED servicing dealer for your fireplace. I hope this helps.

I have mislaid the instructions for my Genesis Miami gas fire, and need to relay the ceramic logs. can anyone please help?


This will depend on whether the fireplace is vented or is vent-free. Vent-free gas fireplaces are sold as a kit with the valve, burner, media (logs, glass, shapes, etc) all designed for a particular placement to work together to reduce dangerous chemicals. A vent-free burner and valve cannot have the logs removed and replaced with some other type of ceramic gas log because the exact placement of the logs is designed around the ports in the burner where the flames rise to minimize carbon created from the flames touching the logs.



If your fireplace is vented then the pull of the flue will remove dangerous fumes created by the same placement so there are no rules about re-arranging or replacing "media". If the fireplace is vented then you could use other log-placement-guides to identify the type of log and where it belongs with little worry because vented logs are designed to be able to have some adjustment anyway.



If vent-free and without a manual, an educated technician should do this for you because the BTU setting on the valve must be compared to the types of burners, port placement, size of ports, amount of ports and flame height. After this examination, someone familiar with the various hidden "tongue-and-groove" etchings in different types of gas logs can figure-out where to place the logs. They may have to test the fireplace burning once or twice to get it exactly correct but once you understand the idea of how a vent-free gas log diminishes the carbon-output of the amount of gas flowing through the burners then it is only a matter of watching the flames to see where the logs could be and comparing the size and layout of the logs to find the best fit.

36ECMII pilot light won't light


If you go to this link http://fmisupport.hcents.com/supportdocs/54024F.pdf it will take you straight to the owner's manual.
Now the gas log set is completely seperate from the fireplace. You would need to find out the model of the gas log set as any manufactuer of vented gas logs can go in this fireplace. Just for clarification the brand is actually Coleman but it was made by FMI. Now, the SPVBPD is a direct vent gas log set that was only designed to go into either the Amity, Oxford, or Victor hearth gas stoves. If you have the SPVBPD burner in a 36ECMII then you honestly need to remove that log set, as it was a burner only rated for direct vent fireplaces, and get a set of 18" LP vented logs. If you look at the link below you will see the owner's manual for the SDVBND. These logs need to be removed and you can go with any 18" vented log set. I suggest Peterson (http://www.rhpeterson.com/realfyre/vented-series/)
as they have the widest selection of logs and biggest array of dealers. Good luck.

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.

Black sot from vent free gas fireplace


Thanks for your question,
your problem is either impingement on your log set, or a product of incomplete combustion, if you notice soot on your logs, then you will need to take them out, clean them, and reinstall them as to not have the flame touching them, you will need to clean the burners as well, make sure nothing is laying across the burners, as this too will cause sooting, as far as incomplete combustion, was this model a natural gas converted to propane or the other way around ? if so who ever converted it, did they adjust the gas valve according to specs? improper adjustment will cause sooting or hooking up a natural gas unit to propane will do this too, I will recommend using (Rutland White Off) to remove any soot from your glass, it works fantastic for this ! any ace hardware will carry it, please do not use windex or any other cleaner on the glass as it will more than likely leave a rainbow affect on your glass once the glass heats up, hope this was helpful to ya, please rate this solution, thanks agai

Need Instructions to use Fireplace Gas Logs


There should be a set of metal cards attached inside the fireplace.
First you should read everything there.

I know you have to first light the pilot light.
And then there should be a wall switch.

The problem I have currently is that it won't stay lit when the artificial logs are there.

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.
