    stove opinions/advice?

    What pellet stove are you burning? BTUs are BTUs, so if the output of your pellet stove heats you adequately, you'll need the same output from a gas unit.

    Difference between older Jotul GF600 DV II vs new Jotul GF 500 DV IPI?

    The GF600 will work without power if it's a standing pilot model. The GF500 IPI will have a battery back-up in case of an outage. I'd take the GF600 in a heartbeat...

    Opinions on Regency Liberty LRI6E

    Haven't had any experience with this particular insert model, but in the past, every Regency Gas appliance that I sold, installed or serviced was a high quality, high heat product. They've been in business for decades (1979), so they must be doing something right.

    Can’t find model info-gas fireplace stove

    Pretty sure it's a Jotul. If you give the dimensions, I can confirm. If it is, it's a good little 26K BTU (input) stove.

    Direct Vent Location

    All units have a specified distance from windows, doors, corners, etc. All are different. You need to refer to the manual for the particular unit you want to install.

    Looking to ID a Regency stove

    Measure the stove & go to Compare it to the wood stove specs there. My guess would be either an F1100, F2400 or an F3100

    Fixing my Valor in-valve spin Piezo

    Fixing my Valor in-valve spin Piezo

    You have continuity, but to you have COMPLETE sheathing? That spark will go to the nearest ground & a break in the sheathing (dry rot) will let the spark go ground BEFORE it gets to the intended location.

    Freestanding gas stove conversion to electric?

    Interesting idea... It can PROBABLY be done. Don't know of anyone who has done it, tho. You don't say which model Regency stove you've got, but all the ones I've serviced were KICK-ASS heating units & have lasted for years. I think I'd sell it & buy a nice looking electric unit with the money...

    Enviro Meridian - how to replace glass

    Check your local hearth shop or hardware store & ask for "Tape Gasket." There are different widths, so bring a piece of the old gasket with you.

    Enviro Meridian - how to replace glass

    Use anti-seize compound on the threads when you install screws in woodstoves. You will be glad you did, no matter WHAT the screw material is.

    Enviro Meridian - how to replace glass

    The door should lift off the short hinge pins on the left side. Lay it flat on a protected surface & spray all the glass retainer screws with penetrating oil, like PBlaster & let it soak in. Get yourself a hammer-type impact driver & carefully loosen the screws. If they're STILL tight, spray...

    Cleaning Lymestone? marble Stone rough face surround

    I'd try brushing it with a stiff-bristle brush (NOT STEEL) to see what loosens up & falls off. Then I'd try soaking a clean white rag in hydrogen pyroxide & holding the rag against the stone - DON'T rub - on a spot off too one side to see if that has an effect. Once that spot dries try the brush...
