Top Troubleshooting Questions

Answers to common fire feature hang-ups.

5 fs of Fire

The flame on my Warming Trends burner is weak, small, or just plain lame.

  • Fuel = Flame: if your flame is barely there, it means your fuel is barely there
  • Contact your gas professional to troubleshoot on-site
  • We assure you, none of our burners put out weak flames

My logs or media have an excessive build-up of black soot.

  • The fuel is burning rich
  • This is a fuel issue, not a burner issue
  • Contact your gas professional
  • Learn more here

My key valve is stuck and won't turn.

  • Sometimes the valve come from the factory and it's just a little sticky. This is perfectly normal.
  • It's a "Quarter-Turn Ball Valve" by Dante (industry standard)
  • Watch this short video on how to loosen your valve before its initial use

  • Contact the manufacturer at +1 (303) 346-2224
  • Warming Trends is located in the U.S. and provides top quality support for electronic ignition

My burner is making noise.

  • Experiencing a 'whoosh' type sound is normal. Air is mixing with fuel at each jet and causes a sound like a mild rushing wind.
  • You should not, however, experience whistling. If you are, contact us.

My burner won't light.

  • Make sure there is no water or ice in the lines.
  • Always cover your burner when not in use to help keep moisture out.
  • Make sure your connections are secure.

My lava rock is exploding, popping, or jumping out of the fire at me.

  • Our lava rock is fire-grade and will be less susceptible to this kind of phenomenon.
  • This is often caused by moisture reacting to the heat of the fire
  • Make sure to buy fire-grade lava rock and keep it protected from excess moisture.

My fire glass is melting.

  • Avoid placing logs, or any other heat-retaining accessories, on top of fire glass
  • The heat build-up on the logs will cause the fire glass to melt

I'm having trouble installing my burner or components.
