Valve Troubleshooting PDF Guides:


      • Gas Fireplace Glass Cleaner – it takes off those white deposits (this is actually a calcium deposit), it leaves a protective coating to prevent future buildup, and it does not contain ammonia (like windex) which can actually harm the inside coating on the glass.
      • Gardner Bender Digital Multimeter – An inexpensive but reliable device to test voltage.  This is probably the most useful tool in gas fireplace repair.
      • Glowing Embers – this simulates glowing embers and will actually add more glow to make it look more realistic.
      • All-in-One Screwdriver – My favorite screwdriver.
      • Compact Vacuum with Brush Attachment -a nice and compact all purpose vacuum to clean off the logs.  You can use your own household vacuum but I like to have a vacuum like this for those “extra dirty” jobs.
      • Gas Leak Detector – Think you smell gas?  Find out for sure with this electronic gas leak detector.  Will detect small traces of natural gas, propane, or methane
