I’ll add to it as I learn more, but you’ll notice that in the future I will reference this page quite often. I recommend bookmarking it for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!

- Gas Fireplace Parts – www.fire-parts.com. These guys are awesome. They have an extensive library of Parts manuals and all the parts you would need to fix your fireplace. Not to mention a great support staff!
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
