Question about Leisure HOMEPRIDE Electric Fireplace Heater w/ Remote
My electric fireplace makes a noise like a bearing needs greasing.
This is with no heat on but the flame and down light on.
We have had it for 5 yrs, love it, but I think the noise has gotten worse over time.
SOURCE: electric fireplace does not heat
I have a cheap electric fireplace bought in SuperCentre store-heater no longer works. It says its a one piece system. Can these heaters be replaced or repaired(probably made in China) or am i better off scrapping it and buying a new one?

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!
