Gas Fireplace Troubleshooting
It’s frustrating when you go to turn on your gas fireplace and something isn’t working correctly. When it comes to fireplace troubleshooting, it’s always best to start with the easiest fixes as sometimes it’s something as simple as the gas being turned off, breakers that have tripped or dead batteries.
Make Sure the Gas is On
Even if you don’t regularly turn the gas off, we always recommend homeowners check to ensure it’s on. There are a number of ways the gas could have been inadvertently turned off and not everyone thinks to check that it’s in the correct position.
If you’re having problems with the blower, check the breaker and see if the fireplace one is tripped. While gas fireplaces don’t need electricity to operate, the fan and blower do require power. When these parts of a fireplace stop working, many people don’t remember to check the circuit breaker.
Check the Batteries
If you’re using a remote to control the fireplace, it could be a problem with the remote—not the actual fireplace. Remote batteries need to be replaced from time-to-time, which could be a quick and easy fireplace troubleshooting solution.
If the above fixes don’t solve the problem, you could have an issue with the burners, fan or pilot light. When it comes to fireplace troubleshooting inside the actual system, we recommend contacting a professional to prevent injury or further damaging the system.
