Question about Heating & Cooling
When I turn on the fireplace, the "flames" light up, but they no longer flicker (to simulate a real fire). Any idea what controls this function? Is it easy to repair?

Hi , you can try and pull the panel on the bottom of fireplace out and check the adapter in fireplace. Sometimes they go bad. When you open in also check to see if there is an adapter plugged in and a option to use the battery operated function. If this goes bad the pilot will not stay lit.

Therinnaiguy - Thanks for the response and I have a follow up comment adn question.
I'm having a similar problem with a Heat'n'Glo fireplace in a new house I just bought. Fireplace lights but goes out after 10-15 seconds .. and yes I think on mine the flames do go all blue and lift up as it extinguishes from right to left.
My fireplace has the Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) so there is no pilot light. Besides the igniter connecting to the DSI module below, there are not any other sensors connected (unless there well hidden or one is wrapped in the igniter).
The LED on the DSI module blinks fast when turned on, which indicated "Normal Operation. Call for Heat." Before all the flames go out I can hear the igniter try to relight a few more times.
Any additional thougths on the problems? What should I do to ensure that the vents are not plugged or anything?

Unplug the motor wire connector and jump it with a 9V. battery. If the motor spins it's good. Chances are the FLAME SPEED CONTOL (Part Number 10001589) circuit board is bad. I had to replace mine. It's at the bottom of the fireplace behind the contols panel.

You will have to connect a 12v dc power supply to the flame motor. The controller on the board has fried. I built a regulated 12 v dc power supply and tapped it into the bulb circuit so it will power the motor when the bulbs come on. You may have to find an electrician or techie to rig this up safely.Good luck!
