    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Susan from Oklahoma City, OK on September 1, 2016
    What about cleaning and what is the approximate amount of space it heats?
    Any restrictions on the space?
    By Chris C. on September 1, 2016

    To clean this burner, I would recommend vacuuming the burner and coals to remove any settled dust or pet hair. This unit could heat up to 950 square feet, and there are indeed restrictions as to the size of the living space which this unit can be installed. Please refer to the bottom of page 4 of the installation manual to better determine maximum BTU per the space you have.

    By Scott from Birmingham, Alabama on December 5, 2013
    I have a 150+ year old Cast Iron Wood Burning Stove. I burn 12" logs in it but I think I have room for this burner. Would this allow me to move my stove to the basement without having to route a chimney through my living room upstairs? Would I just permanently close the damper and fake-in the flue?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 5, 2013

    You could indeed operate the stove with this burner assembly installed, as long as a piece of steel plate is cut and used to seal the flue opening. It is important that the stove door is left open or is removed for this burner to operate properly.

    By Wayne Engel from Shenandoah Valley of Virginia on December 15, 2016
    Does the thermostat remote control require that the unit be serviced by house current or is it battery operated?
    By Will M. on December 15, 2016

    Like most all optional remote controls offered with gas log sets, the optional thermostatic remote is battery operated.

    By Danita from Detroit, MI on December 28, 2015
    Does this Rasmussen vent-free natural gas burner with realistic coals connect with the natural gas line?
    By Will M. on December 29, 2015

    This burner will indeed connect with a natural gas supply stub.

    I have an Osburn wood stove. Will this fit so I can use gas instead of wood?
    By Will M. on April 25, 2017

    Unfortunately, you may not install any gas log set or gas log lighter in a wood stove as combustion chamber temperatures will be too high for safe use. This differs from manufactured fireplaces that feature an open hearth. Gas log sets and gas log lighters may indeed be installed in most all UL127-listed wood burning fireplaces, so long as any doors that may have been installed are left in the fully open position. While quite efficient, modern wood stoves like your Osburn are made with the primary focus of maintaining inner hearth temperatures that will far exceed the maximum safety limits of any gas burner or gas controls commonly used with gas log sets.

    By Dick M. from Georgetown, KY on February 14, 2017
    Can this unit be used in a see-thru design or would it require two units? If a see-thru design requires two units, what would the minimum total fireplace depth need to be?
    By Will M. on February 14, 2017

    While approval for an installation of this type would need to be provided by local code enforcement, as the manufacturer will not provide requirements for a non-single sided application, you would need to multiply the minimum depth requirement by 2 to determine the minimum depth requirement for installing two of these back to back in a see-through fireplace.

    To answer your question, the manufacturer does not offer a see-through version.

    By Dick from Georgetown, KY on February 14, 2017
    I am renovating a 100+ year old Victorian home with a masonry chimney that serviced two fireplaces back to back. I intend to go ventless and shutoff the existing chimney. I also intend to create a see-thru ventless gas log/coal fireplace. The opening of the unfinished fireplace, i.e. without a firebox is 31.5" wide x 30" high x 24" deep (total thru wall distance to the fronts of what will be the firebox). The finished dimensions of the previous fireplaces were 20.5" wide x 25" high, i.e. those are the dimensions of the cast iron surrounds I intend to reuse with their Victorian surround tiles which I intend to re-purpose. I have two questions:
    1. Is there a see-thru firebox that will accommodate this rather small opening? If yes, which one(s)?
    2. What is the largest ventless gas log/coal set I can use?
    By Will M. on February 14, 2017

    We will not offer any see-through ventless fireboxes with dimensions that would be compatible with an opening of this size.

    By Carl from Moab, Utah on January 25, 2013
    I have a Heatilator fireplace that we haven't used for years. Do they make an insert that burns Natural Gas that I could install in the fireplace that would look like a real fireplace but put out a lot of heat too? It is just an open fireplace with no glass doors. We had a pellet insert in it but it was about as nasty cleaning it as a woodburning fireplace. My wife likes the look of a fireplace but hates to have any smoke or ashes.
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 25, 2013

    Installing a set of ventless gas logs is always a viable option that you may consider. Vented logs are generally more realistic looking, but they are largely decorative and do not put out much supplemental heat. Ventless logs have a lower flame, but are extremely efficient and can heat a decent amount of space.

    By Frankie from Bon Aqua, Tennessee on November 17, 2013
    I have a Charmglow free standing fireplace, Model # CGL250TE with an LP burner. I now have natural gas and would like to make this unit operate on natural gas. Will this unit work in this fire place? If not, do you have a burner that will?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on November 18, 2013

    We do not have any information about your model, but we can only recommend using a vent-free burner inside if the manufacturer specifically approves such an installation in the owner's manual for your fireplace. As such, please check your owner's manual for more information.

    By Susan from Newberry, SC on October 18, 2012
    We have a small Victorian fireplace that we have had sealed to vent-free. The front width is 20", the rear width is 18", the depth is 8", and the height is 25". We would like to use the existing "hanging" basket. Would this unit allow us to do so and if not, do you have one that would?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 18, 2012

    This burner is manufactured with your exact application in mind. This burner will allow you to retrofit your Victorian fireplace to a gas burning application, while still retaining the distinctive look of your original basket.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    This unit fits the opening and design of old narrow and shallow coal burning fireplace openings. In looking at the picture, one would think the controls are behind the front door plate of the unit as there is a knob suggesting that the controls are behind the door. So, I did not order the expensive remote thinking I could easily manage without it. Not true, the controls are on the right side toward the back of the burner which butts the manual controls inside and next to the firebox wall where you cannot see or get easy access to them. Thus it is difficult to light the pilot and dangerous and in my situation impossible, for one to manually control the flame and shut the unit off. The remote control really should be sold with the unit as the receiver for the remote is included with the unit. Bottom line, order the remote at the same time unless you have a big firebox. So, after trying to manage it without, I order the remote. The burner unit include the receiver which is a small black plastic box connected to the burner unit with two short wires. DO NOT locate that box anywhere near the burner as the unit puts out too much heat to locate it in or near the firebox. I learned the hard way and ended up with a heat damaged receiver. I learned this when I tried to pair the subsequently ordered remote with the receiver. No warranty replacement. New receiver can be bought directly from the Manufacturer.
    Works well and although it is new, I am confident as it is well made My frequent talks with Will and Owen in Customer Service were helpful. I am anxious to see how the remote arrangement really works this burner.
    The rear side inaccessible location of the controls is a design flaw. For safety, order the optional remote with the unit.
