How to Clean Stainless Steel Ethanol Fireplace

How to Clean Stainless Steel Ethanol Fireplace

Ethanol fireplaces are virtually maintenance free, but like any other stainless steel appliances, they need to be cleaned every once in a while. We recommend cleaning your stainless steel ethanol fireplace regularly - a few times a year - to prevent contamination.

Luckily, cleaning a stainless steel ethanol fireplace is an easy task and can be done with just a soft cloth, warm water, and mild soap.

Any stainless steel ethanol fireplace consists of the two main parts: a burner and a fireplace body or trim. 

The burner surface must be cleaned regularly. Use warm water and soap. Marks can be best removed with a soft cloth and a mixture of lukewarm water and a small amount of cleaning liquid (ph-neutral). In more severe cases, you can use a creamy stainless steel cleaner. 

The burner gets exposed to a lot of heat and this can create discoloration, turning the burner a bit yellow and black over time. The best thing you can do is to make sure that any spilled ethanol gets cleaned up and properly clean the burner on a monthly basis.

The body can be cleaned with stainless steel cleaner as needed.

Cleaning your Ethanol Fireplace Step by Step:

1. Take out the Burner.

Make sure the fireplace is cooled off. Take the burner out of the fireplace body and drain the fuel. Wipe off the remaining fuel residue with dry clothes.

2. Clean the Burner.

Wipe the burner with a soft cloth, warm water, and a mild soap.

3. Dry the Burner

Wipe it off with a dry cloth and set aside to air dry.

4. Clean the Body

You can use stainless steel cleaner on the stainless steel body of the fireplace.

5. Reassemble and Refill

Once everything is clean and dry, put the burner back in place and refill with the new bio-ethanol fuel.

The entire process shouldn't take longer than a few minutes and will keep your ethanol fireplace in great shape.

CAUTION: Never use chemical, steel-wool or scrubbing sponges to clean the fireplace. It can damage the surface. Make sure your burner has been off and cooled before attempting to clean.

Note that the manufacturer can not be held responsible for any damages resulting out of improper use and/or cleaning of the products. So, make sure you follow the above recommendations and always use the proper bio-ethanol fuel - that will keep your maintenance limited.

Take a good care of you stainless steel ethanol fireplace and it will serve you for years to come!
