    Default Gas stove vent

    This is a small natural gas stove. Two questions. Is this the correct type of direct vent and is the soot an indication of an issue with the gas not buring cleanly.

    Cool Re: Gas stove vent

    The listed instructions will tell you which venting systems are listed for use with this appliance.

    This is a problem and needs a qualified technician.

    The manual needs to be located for this unit to answer your venting questions and probably help the tech, too, such as log placment, specs, etc.

    Keep the fire in the fireplace.

    Bob, the entire arrangement is a problem or the soot.

    The soot is a problem it usually indicates impingement of the flame or incomplete combustion.

    The vent appears to be the typical type I see for a gas stove at least in my area.

    Matthew, the soot is not a normal occurrence thus needs to be investigated by a qualified technician. As part of that, the venting will need to be inspected and compared to the instructions. It may be the corrrect venting installed perfectly, it may be the incorrect venting or it may be the correct venting but not installed per the instructions of either the appliance or vent mfr.

    If this is a gas direct vent then once it has been determined to be properly installed and operating, there would be no problem with it being installed in a bedroom.

    Just a wild guess. It could be sucking air around that glass door. If it is direct vent, there should be no other air getting in.

    I asked because that looks just like one my sister has in her family room which is not direct vented ... curious if it was really direct vented or not, and if not I would not want it in the bedroom.

    Is there enough clearance around it to the wall?
