    Default Ventless propane fireplace is leaving soot all over walls

    My sister has a ventless propane fireplace in her bedroom, and just had to paint over the walls because the soot is AWFUL. She and husband are at a loss for what the reason could be...any ideas?? Thanks!!

    In some states these fireplaces are outlawed, for obvious reasons. Too many people die from CO build up.

    As for the reason for the soot, it could be a misadjusted flame, burning too rich. Refer to your owner's manual on how to adjust the propane/air mix. Call the manufacturer for instructions.

    The air/fuel mixture is not correct, you have the wrong amount of pressure, or you have a NG orifice rather than propane orface.
