    We currently have a ventless superior VRT2036WS fireplace with LVD18/24 gas log kit installed on an outdoor screened porch. We are having some issues with the heat causing our mantle to get very hot. Is it possible to install a blower in the unit to direct the heat out and away from rising to the mantle? It would also serve to better heat the space when using it on colder days and evenings. Thanks for your help....
    1 Answer
    Installing the Superior/IHP Rotary Type Fan Blower with Magnetic Attachment would definitely help redirect the heat away from the mantle and down into the space where people would be gathered.

    I'm an architect working on a house with a Superior RD3300 (per old plans). It has a glass front and a log set inside. The client wants an "open" wood burning fireplace. Can I remove glass and burn logs?

    If that is a gas log fireplace, then no you can not burn wood in it.

    We currently have a wood burning fireplace with a Superior Heatform firebox and circulating system. It was installed in 1987 and I don't have the literature or model number. We are currently trying to determine if we can install gas logs in this fireplace. Any information would be appreciated. The fan is model 2F and it states that it can be used with Heatform Models 31A, 34A, 37, 43, 48, 60, & 73A.

    Yes, you can install gas logs in that unit.

    I have a Superior B500 CMN fireplace. It is installed in the wall. It works fine, but I need a blower mechanism. It is not for heat or efficiency, solely for an aesthetic purpose.
    1 Answer
    The Superior B500 series was a line of B-vent fireplaces. As a rule, B vent units are only designed for aesthetics and even the models that have fans do not have any real heating ability. Air that is circulated by the fan is simply pulled back into the fireplace opening and out of the room, making little difference to the area heated. Your best option for heating would be to remove the current B-vent model and replace it with a direct vent fireplace. Direct vent gas fireplaces use a pane of glass to seal the fireplace opening, preventing air from being pulled out of the room. They use a double wall vent system that pulls combustion air in from the outdoors, as well as vents exhaust gases.

    from Walland, TN asked:
    January 7, 2016
    I have a Superior ventless LPG fireplace and I have cleaned the thermopile and blew through the nozzle with compressed air and re lit the pilot and it stayed on and worked all day and I turned it on and off with my wall switch at least 6 times and it worked great. The pilot light was on all night and when I turned the wall switch on this morning it lit for just a few seconds and went out. I let it cool down and lit the pilot again and it worked fine. This has happened the past two days, what would you recommend?
    1 Answer
    Since you have used compressed air to clean out the ODS pilot assembly, I would use either an emery cloth or very fine grit sandpaper, such as 800-1000 grit to clean any carbon build up off of both the thermopile and thermocouple. Over time, this build up can cause a lower voltage to be produced by both of these components back to the gas valve. If after cleaning the thermopile and thermocouple, the set continues to malfunction, I would suggest having a technician come out to further diagnose the set by pulling millivolt readings from the terminals at the valve, as the pilot assembly may simply be worn out.

    We have a Superior natural gas log fireplace that was installed back in 99'. The model is a Superior XDVR5-CMNS. My igniter wire broke and, even though I can light the pilot light with a match, it still won't fire up. With the age of this unit and the issues that I'm having, would a new upgrade be both more efficient and feasible?
    1 Answer
    As the parts for your unit are no longer available through the manufacturer, I would agree that upgrading to a new unit is likely the best coarse of action. You may want to take a look at some of our Direct Vent Fireplaces.

    September 25, 2015
    We have an old wood burning Superior fireplace, model RC4310, and we would like to use new gas logs in this fireplace and have been advised to see if this unit will support gas logs. The gas logs are new but they came from a ventless fireplace that we replace with a direct vent fireplace. The logs have been installed and we plan to open the flu when burning the gas logs. What would you suggest?
    1 Answer
    With the installation of a vent less gas log set in the fireplace with the damper open, you would be operating this as a decorative type appliance. In the manual for the fireplace, it does state that the damper would need to be fixed in the open position for proper operation.

    The pilot light of my Superior fireplace won't stay on. What do you think could be the problem? The light will stay on when I hold the button but will go out the second I stop.
    1 Answer
    It is very likely that the issue lies within the thermocouple. As they age, the thermocouple will become less effective at generating millivoltage and must be replaced. I first recommend cleaning the thermocouple with an emory cloth. This will remove any built up soot or contamination, which will then allow the thermocouple to function more effectively.

    from Raleigh, NC asked:
    May 30, 2015
    I am looking for a wood burning fireplace for residential use that will be used probably from 10 to 20 times a year. Are the Superior WRT models better than the WCT ones?
    1 Answer
    The only difference between the WCT and WRT models is that the WCT or circulating model offers an optional blower to aid in the natural convection produced by it's louvered design while the WRT or radiant model does not. These types of appliances are considered decorative appliances and, like a traditional masonry fireplace, will only provide radiant heat to the room. Purchasing the WCT model and adding the optional blower would simply aid in pushing the heated convection air in to the room while the radiant model would be more for aesthetics as the clean facing can be finished with noncombustible material. From the usage you have described, it sounds like the radiant model may be the better option.

    1 Answer
    The DRT2035 series is the traditional line and includes a log set whereas the DRC2035 is the contemporary alternative and contains black crushed glass media (for which you can swap with separately-purchased other colors of crushed glass). Unfortunately, no, neither unit can be converted to the other style.

    January 29, 2015
    When I turn off the wall switch and the flames are turned off in my fireplace, the pilot light seems extremely high, enough to make the glass hot, and I can heart the gas line running. Can the pilot light be adjust in my fireplace? I have a direct vent SLDVT-30/35/40/45 series fireplace.
    1 Answer
    There is indeed a pilot adjustment screw on the standing pilot versions of this unit. When looking into the bottom of the unit at the main gas valve, locate the high/low control knob on the valve. Immediately to the right and just above the level of the control knob is a brass flat head adjustment screw. Turning the screw clockwise will slowly decrease the pilot flame height.

    January 7, 2015
    I have a Superior natural gas fireplace which continues to soot up on the glass and on my siding by the outside vent assembly. What is causing this soot to be released?
    1 Answer
    There are several issues that could cause the problem, listed below: 1. Incorrect gas type. 2. Flame impingement caused by improper log placement. 3. Partially clogged orifice or air shutter. I recommend varying the fuel type first. If the fuel type is correct for the gas you are burning, the unit should be serviced and inspected for other issues.

    from NJ asked:
    December 29, 2014
    What's the difference between a circulating and radiant fireplace? Which one would you suggest? I read the reviews on the fresh air intake. Is there a problem with them closing?
    1 Answer
    Radiant fireplaces use a smooth face with no louvers. This allows them to be built in with noncombustible material up to the edges of the fireplace opening. The only drawback is that radiant models do not have the ability to be used with a circulating fan. Circulating models will have louvers on the face that allow for the installation of a fan, however the louvers cannot be covered for any reason. There are several different designs of fresh air kits. Some of them use a baffle that must be opened and closed manually, while others do not use such a device. The baffle system works well and to my knowledge, there is not a problem with them.

    from NJ asked:
    December 27, 2014
    We've turned on our fireplace for the first time this year and it isn't staying on. At first it did for a few minutes then it went off. So we turned it off and left it off overnight so we could clean it out the next day. We cleaned it up and turned it on and it did the same thing. The pilot stays lit and it'll come on but then immediately go out. We've never had any problems with it in the previous 5 years of winters. What could be causing the problem?
    1 Answer
    The problem is most likely attributed to the thermopile within the pilot assembly. Most pilot assemblies will have both a thermocouple and thermopile. The thermopile is one of the two probes that is engulfed in flame from the pilot hood. If the thermopile is dirty, it can cause a loss of voltage, which will lead to the main burner dropping out. With the pilot off and the unit completely cool, 1500 grit sandpaper can be used to lightly clean the thermopile to remove carbon and soot. If this does not solve the issue, replacement of the part may be necessary.
