Why is my fireplace glass hot?

A fireplace with a fixed glass front can get so hot when it's on it can cause third degree burns. Because they don't allow heat to escape, consumer reports says the glass can heat to over 1,300 degrees. It can take an hour to cool down even after it's off.

Simply so, should the glass on a gas fireplace be hot?

But areas around a fire can get hot too, including the surfaces of the fireplace. In particular, the glass on the front of gas fireplaces can get very hot, with temperatures reaching levels high enough to cause severe burns.

Similarly, why did my fireplace glass break? Simply scratching a tempered glass fireplace door can weaken it, causing it to shatter. A thrown toy, an elbow hitting the surface and other mishaps can break the glass as well. Accidents happen, but in an attempt to prevent broken fireplace doors, prevent playing around them and treat them gently.

In this way, how do I stop my fireplace glass from going black?

On most modern stoves this is very easy to do – just push the baffle up and drop it down at an angle. Finally, it is perfectly normal to see some blackening at the bottom of the glass after the stove fire goes out and the airwash cycle begins to fail.

How do you clean burnt glass on a fireplace?

Use vinegar solution: Try a homemade soot-cleaning solution made of ammonia and vinegar (1 cup vinegar, 3 cups warm water and 1 tablespoon of ammonia). Spray solution onto the glass and let sit for 30 seconds. With a clean cotton cloth, scrub in a circular motion until soot is loosened.
