How to Clean Gas Fireplace Burners


Gas fireplaces offer warmth and enhance the look of any home. They ignite quickly and burn cleaner than traditional fireplaces. They should be cleaned and maintained at least once a year, and the gas burner should be free of any soot and debris to operate properly. This can be accomplished with little time and effort.

Things You'll Need

  • Vacuum
  • Compressed air
  • Cloth
  • Turn off the gas and electric power supply. Remove the screen and logs. Vacuum them off or wipe them with a damp cloth.

  • Vacuum the burner with an attachment. Use compressed air to clean the holes in the burner. Work your way from the front to the back until you reach the end.

  • Blow the air through the pilot tube. A few inches below the pilot tube, you will see the air inlet hole. Spray back and forth across the hole to clear it of any debris.

  • Replace the logs and screen. Turn on the gas valve and power supply.
