Gas Log Repair

A gas log fireplace can work efficiently for many years. They are energy-efficient and provide steady heat for as long as the fireplace is turned on. During its use, parts may start to wear out. Logs may begin to crack or become chipped. Meetze Plumbing offers same-day service when you call to report a problem with your gas log fireplace. We are open seven days a week, so you will always have the service you need when you need it.

Contact Meetze Plumbing online or call (803) 732-3747 today to learn more about our same-day service guarantee and how we can keep your gas log fireplace running efficiently.

Signs Your Gas Logs and Fireplace May Need Repairs

Over time, you will become familiar with how your gas log fireplace functions. When something goes wrong, you will be the first to notice that something isn’t as it should be. A few of the most common signs include:

  • Won’t ignite or turn off: If your fireplace won’t turn on or off, there may be something wrong with your gas valve or the igniter. Call your technician right away to see if repairs need to be made or if your system simply needs a good cleaning.
  • Flames are uneven: When you look at your fireplace, watch the flames closely. If they look uneven or if it appears that some areas of the logs aren’t lit, you may have a blockage in the gas feed. Having a technician check your gas line and the burner will ensure nothing major is wrong.
  • Unfamiliar odor or smell: While it’s commonly said that natural gas has no odor, certain smells can indicate something is wrong. If you begin to smell an unfamiliar odor, you need to call the reputable technicians at Meetze Plumbing as soon as possible. Turn off the gas valve until the technicians arrive.
  • Cracks or chips on logs: Gas logs that have cracks and chips may not be able to heat sufficiently. This may cause them to burst apart, throwing hot ceramic pieces throughout your room. Call your technician immediately if you notice any chips or cracks. Do not use your fireplace until the broken or damaged gas logs have been replaced.
  • Unfamiliar noises: Snapping and popping noises are expected with a wood-burning fireplace, but not with gas logs. If you hear unfamiliar noises, turn off your fireplace and call a repair technician as soon as possible. You should also turn off the gas valve until the repair technician arrives.

No. Some signs may go unnoticed for an extended period. Hearing unfamiliar noises or smelling odors may be your only sign of a problem.

Call to schedule a maintenance appointment in the late summer or early fall before you turn your fireplace on for the first time.

Yes, you can clean your logs yourself. The problem is that you may not notice signs of wear and tear. Even if you do the cleaning yourself, you should still call a professional technician to inspect your fireplace to ensure it’s in good working order.
