How to turn on gas fireplace. If the knob is not in the off position turn it so that it is. If you dont see the valve it is probably behind the fireplace. Turn off the gas and look at the logs or under the logs to see where the gas comes out.
Look for it there and turn it on. It should also be out of the main traffic area in the home. Like any fireplace the surface of the gas fireplace gets hot so you should plan its placement away from curtains or furniture.
Look for a knob on your control panel with the words on off and pilot on it. Turn the control knob to the off position for at least 5 minutes. Now turn the gas back on with the gas key and hold a long match or fireplace lighter there.
