I just recently installed a set of gas logs into an existing fireplace that had a gas starter line already installed. I have used the logs a couple of times and have noticed that gas burns out of the orifice in what appears to be an air mixer. Is this normal? Should I remove the air mixer? Is this a safety concern??

The air mixer was not part of the log set. I am attaching the log set to the existing mixer which then attaches to the line coming out of the side of the fire box. I am concerned because approx 30% of the flame burns from the orifice on the air mixer. It appears to me that the flame is lower than it should be. The instructions included in the set does not show it needing to be conected to anything other than a straight pipe.

Removing the air mixer is going to require me to disassemble the metal fire box in order to remove the mixer from the pipe it is connected. Unfortunately, there is not enough room for me to get a pipe wrench on the pipe inside the box.
