Spring is in the air and it is time to perform some simple maintenance tasks to ensure your appliance is ready to be fired up for the season. HPC recommends regular maintenance to extend the longevity of your design. Below are a few action steps to take specific to each ignition style.
ELECTRONIC IGNITION UNITS (ON/OFF & HI/LO):
Perform a visual inspection of burner and pilot assembly. This may involve removing the media. It is a good time to remove any residue from the meadow. HPC recommends cleaning it with warm mild soapy water. Ensure there are no cracks in the burner. Inspect the pilot assembly to confirm there are no signs of damage, this includes the igniter, hood, and thermocouple. Ensure ventilation openings on the enclosure are not covered with leaves or debris. With the gas line in the closed position, turn the circuit breaker on and apply power to the unit. This will allow you to verify that the igniter is working properly. The igniter should glow if it is working properly. Upon confirming that the igniter is working properly, the media can be returned to the pan. Next, reconnect the unit to the gas line and open the service valve to the gas line. Lastly, apply power to your fire appliance. Don’t be alarmed if it takes a few cycles to bleed the gas lines as this is common if the fire appliance has been sitting unused for a period of time.
PUSH BUTTON FLAME SENSING (FPPK):
Start the inspection by removing the media from the pan. Take a moment to cleanse the media with mild soapy water. Next perform a visual inspection of burner and pilot assembly. Ensure there are no cracks in burner and that the pilot assembly is not visibly damaged. HPC recommends installing a new battery into the spark module and push the igniter button in to ensure the igniter has good spark. Ensure that the enclosure ventilation openings free of debris. Turn the gas line on and fire up your fire appliance. It may take a few cycles to bleed the gas lines. This is typical if the appliance has gone unused for a period of time.
Remove media from the pan and cleanse it with mild soapy water. Next inspect burner for cracks and remove any debris from the pan. Be sure the ventilation openings are clear of leaves and debris. Next, turn on the gas line on and fire up the fire appliance.
Spring maintenance takes very little time and is critical to the operation of the equipment. Contact HPC Fired Inspired™ tech line 877-433-7001 to talk to one of our NFI certified professionals to assist with the service of your appliance.
