My propane fireplace started smoking a few days ago, and I have not used it since, however i have had a fear of that fireplace since my fine friend and I got it, and now, I am super afraid that it is going to start a fire in the house.
I don’t know what caused it to smoke, although I have my suspicions. I have a feeling that one of my children threw a toy or something else in the fireplace while I was not looking and it is melting. I imagine it is something with paper on it… Whatever is in there is smoking like crazy. I don’t think that I will have the guts to turn it back on just in case I am wrong and it is something else. In the back of my head, I keep thinking that it could be something worse. I picture myself turning the fireplace back on and it blowing up. I know that may sound ridiculous, although I am just admitting what goes on in my head. I used my propane fireplace for more than 2 years, and I am not distraught to stop using it. I will miss the extra heat that it put off, although I will not miss the bad smell that the propane fireplace put off. I know it was just the smell of propane. I must really hate the smell of propane. It makes me sick to my stomach. If I would have known how much I hate the smell of propane, I actually would not have gotten a propane fireplace. I know you live and you learn.
