  • How do I clean my EcoSmart Fire ethanol burner?

    Cleaning of the ethanol burner should be done only after you have used 50 litres of fuel or as soon as you notice a black residue forming around or on the burner. Before starting, make sure the burner is off, empty of ethanol, and at room temperature. Spray a multi-purpose cleaner on the surface of the burner and wipe with cloth, making sure to wipe in the direction of the grain. If material has fallen into the ethanol fireplace burner use a vacuum cleaner to remove debris through the burner opening. If your burner smells unusually strong after extensive use, remove the empty and room temperature burner from its surround and wash in hot, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly under running water and wait until the burner is completely dry before placing it back into its surround and reusing. View this video of the simple cleaning process here:

  • Do EcoSmart Fire ethanol fireplaces give off any fumes or gases?

    Bioethanol fuel is made of fermented plants like sugarcane or corn and is essentially a liquid alcohol. To safely make “de-natured” and unfit for consumption, substances have been added. The burning of these substances may cause a slight smell upon initial lighting and when the flame is extinguished – similar to when you blow out a candle. Clean burning and eco-friendly, ethanol fuel releases heat, carbon dioxide (the same stuff we exhale) and steam.

  • How do I light my Ethanol Fire?

    With EcoSmart Fire’s proprietary tools and procedures, it is easy to turn your bioethanol fire on and off.

    Step 1: Extend the lighting rod and use the hook at the end to lift open the ethanol burner lid.

    Step 2: Dip the end of the lighting rod into the burner to wet with ethanol fuel.

    Step 3: Light the lighting rod and dip back into the ethanol burner to ignite the flame.

    Step 4: To extinguish, use the hook at the end of the lighting rod to close the ethanol burner lid.
