Hello.........I am a bit worried and wondered if I could get some suggestions or help. I just installed a Vent free Gas log set into my BR36 Majestic ( UL 127) which is supposed to be able to support this vent free gas log set. The log set is ANS Z223.1 . When I am using this new log set, I have the flue closed and the outside air ventilation grills open,
Here are the problems,,,,,,,,,,,the whole house has a horrible smell. It even smells outside the house. It smells like burning plastic or even a bit like the oven when it is in the cleaning cycle. There is no smoke. I have a CO detector installed 4 feet away from the unit.
Also the mantel, granite tile get really hot. Too hot to touch without getting a burn. I do meet the combustablity distances but it is so hot, I just keep thinking this is wrong.
I would like to hear if you all have had similar issues with the smell on the ventless logs or the heat issues?
