Proper use, maintenance and repair of your Majestic fireplace will keep it performing as expected and working like new. The firebox of your wood burning fireplace is subjected to high heat during use. Warping or damage can occur to the grate inside the firebox so it no longer hold the fire logs in the proper position. Rectify this condition by replacing the old grate with a new one.

Tips and warnings

  • Purchase new fireplace grates through your local Majestic retailer. Find the part number for the proper grate for your model of fireplace in the parts section of your fireplace owner's manual or by visiting the Majestic Products website.
  • Do not continue to use your fireplace if the grate is warped or damaged. A misshapen grate can cause parts of the firebox to get too hot and become damaged or may allow burning logs to roll forward out of the fireplace.
