LP fireplace rear burner search

Recommended Posts

I hope I am posting this in the right place. We bought a house and the previous owner put a natural gas fireplace in where it should have been a LP one. I changed the control valve and now need the orifices and a rear burner. I can get the orfices but cannot find a rear burner. Have looked on the net all over. It is a DESA fireplace and they went out of business a few years ago. The part # 104572-02 DESA rear burner. I would greatly appreciate any help. It is only about a $14.00 part but if I can't find one I have to buy a new fireplace. This model you cannot replace the insides like on some models. Of course... Thanks much.

Check with some companies that sell that type of outfit and maybe they can direct you, or better yet have the piece on hand.

You should not need the burner. All you need is the gas valve ,the burner orfice and the orfice for the pilot. I never seen an LP kit come with the burner. Find a heating shop and they should be able to find out what size burner orfice you need and get it set up for you.

Hi you guys and thanks for the input. I thought the same thing. The places that do have the orifices said I was wasting my money if I don't get the burner replaced too. They said that the holes are too big and that the orifices don't do the whole job, the burner restricts gas flow too. The burner is just a 1" pipe with a 90 degree bend in it. I was even thinking about plugging the existing holes and drilling out smaller ones.

The orfice is all that needs to be replaced. It is what allows the amount of gas to go through. I have installed alot of fireplaces and never replaced a burner tube when I put in a a LP kit. It is like on a stove or a furnace, you replace the orfices and the spring in the gas valve and it is converted. Just be sure to check gas pressure and the air adjusted right or it could soot up.

I've been in the Biz for 25 years and there are some units that do require a burner change out. FMI was a brand under the Desa corporation. FMI is still around. Google and call their tech. department. They should be able to help.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
