I had gas logs installed in my wood burning fireplace several years
ago. Peterson 24". The logs were provided by and installation was done
by Forshaw of St Louis. It's a see-thru fireplace. We also changed the
doors at the same time.
Log fire looks great...........but there's a problem. The logs were
instaled in 2/00.
On 11/29/01...the valve "froze".....would not close. Needed to turn
off from outside near the gas meter. I would judge us to be moderate
users. Forshaw came and replaced the valve - no charge
On 1/3/03.....the valve "froze" again.......same as last time. Forshaw
came and replaced the valve - no charge.
On 2/13/04........the valve has again "frozen".
It seems to me that there must be some sort of problem here that is
causing the valve to "dry out" or something, that causes it to not be
able to close..when it is hot. I can close the valve....with
effort........after the fireplace has cooled.
Have any ideas on how to solve this problem?
