The problem is likely the fan motor for the forced air blower, which means the entire blower needs replaced. The description of the problem is the same problem we had approximately two years ago when our motor was still under warranty (less than a year old). In our case the motor was replaced without charge. However, the same problem has happened this year which is extremely disappointing since we only run the fireplace from December to April intermittently because it is only a supplimental heat source for the house. You can either look up the model number and part number and order a replacement over the web (less expensive if you are DIY and know what you're doing) or see if the local LPG supplier can repair the part or replace. Good luck.

Elco fireplace blower wont work

If your blower/fan blows air into a "box" with tubes that conduct heated air out through the screen, that assembly may have failed. I had one that burned out and had to be replaced.

I need to know what type of bulb(s) is required for replacement. I have no light or flame affect. I can't find the manual.

Most generally use a chandelier bulb that has a small base. It shouldn't exceed 60 watts.

Since you have misplaced your Owners Manual here's a downloadable link that you can print for future reference.

FYI - This fireplace was Originally manufactured by Pyromaster, then FMI and is now owned & manufactured by Monessen Hearth Products.

Hope this helps resolve your problem. Please let me know.

My vent free gas fireplace blower will not turn off.Do I need to replace the thermostat and if so , how do I do it?

If the blower will not turn off it could be several things. Certainly the thermostat would be one but it could also be a relay on the fireplace which powers the blower. My guess is the manufacturer did not run all the power necessary for the blower through the thermostat. More likely there is a relay or a tempreture switch on your unit which turns the power on or off to the motor using the thermostat as a reference. I would say that the relay or switch has stuck or burned shut and will not open. You will have to do some checking to make sure which part you need. A simple DMM will tell you if the thermostat is bad. Remove the leads from the thermostat and check continuity. Turn the thermostat up and down the DMM should go from infinity to a short if it is working. If it checks ok check the relay/switch in the fireplace next. I'm guessing that is where you will find the problem. Let me know how you make out and if you need anymore help.

Dont know how to start it, dont know what it needs to start, and there is no remote to it

Some units sometimes have a wall switch that has to be turned on.
Usually on the bottom of the fireplace bheind the grille is the control
box a switch to turn on the electric heat and another to control the
electric heat and a possible blower.

Check to make sure the breaker is not turn off.
