Hello all.

I just moved into a house and am doing some renos. When I did the walkthrough, this unit had a cabinet semi obstructing it and I didn't think much of it as the time. Now that I have had a chance to clear some of the rubbish, I found this relic. I haven't been able to find much information online in terms of removal, despite using the name Valor Homeflame that's badged on the side. I've never seen a fireplace of this type before. Given its location and a 6 inch gas line that attaches to it/protrudes from the wall, I think its best to remove it, before it gets knocked accidently. I also don't think its safe at all to use. Depending on how hot the case gets, I could see someone getting burned quite easily.

How does one go about removing it?

Where is the shut off?

Sorry for the poor picture. Had to clear half my move in stuff away to take it.
