About how long should I expect my Monessen Covington direct vent fireplace to take to burn off the manufacturer smell? It's been going for a few weeks sometimes 5-10 hours at a time and still a lot of oily or chemical smell.

Our Answer:

Usually, most of the manufacturing oil burn off and paint curing will be completed by the first 10-12 hours of burn time. If the unit was produced very recently, the cure time can be a bit longer. If the smell persists, I would recommend checking the door seal to be sure it is fully seated, as the unit may be leaking combustion gases into the room if the door is not seated properly.
