Cleaning Your Radiant Gas Fireplace

Cleaning Your Radiant Gas FireplaceOne of the nice things about owning a radiant gas fireplace over a wood fireplace is that you don’t need to clean out the wood ash from your fireplace after using it.  However, there is one part of your radiant gas fireplace that will need cleaning, and that is the glass doors.

After many uses, the glass doors on your radiant gas fireplace will start to see a build-up of soot, which regular glass cleaner is not able to handle.  Your local Valor dealer should be able to help you find a cleaner that is designed specifically for removing the soot from your glass doors.

The cleaners tend to be pasty in texture, and they act a bit like car wax.  You apply them with a paper towel in a circular motion, let it sit on the glass for many seconds, and then wipe it off with a clean paper towel until the doors are clear.

    I’d love to clean the glass. I can see the four screws the manual says to give a quarter turn, but I can’t access them without taking the front off and trim. How do I do that? It is not mentioned in the owners manual.

      Thanks for your comment! Not knowing the model of fireplace, we can’t answer that question here, I’m afraid. You can get a faster answer by calling our customer support team at 1-800-468-2567 and asking for Technical. They’ll be happy to assist you with this and any other questions you have about your fireplace!

    We had our Valor installed in October and love it. It is doing a good job of heating the whole house! The glass however needs to be cleaned every three weeks, and now there is a sooty char that has built up on the underside of several logs. It occasionally drops down on the metal burner tray at the bottom in pea sized charcoal bits. These bits continue to glow after the fire turns off. Is there a problem with the seal? Is dust and material getting into the firebox? Is there a fire risk?

  3. I see how to clean the glass door. But what product would you use to clean the black exterior surface on the front of the fireplace. We just did a reno in the room and it is covered in drywall dust. Just wiping it seems to leave a grayish film.
