sometimes a normal service especially on older fires is not enoiugh , it would need to be striped down and the jets cleaned, with all fires with a glass front there, is always misting and fires with large flames ie dfle or fle (stands for decorative flame effect or living flame effect ) which are designed to burn with a yellow flame. always have a small amount of soot deposit, get it rechecked again.
