Blade on fireplace heat o lator appears to be turning the wrong way. Heat does not come out of the top of the fireplace. What do I do to be able to take out the heat o later and reverse the fan?


Roger. it depends of whether this is a Gas Fireplace or a Wood Burning Fireplace?

If it's a direct vent gas fireplace, the blower was installed incorrectly. To access the blower, you will have to dismantle most of the interior of the firebox and the burner tray (Interior floor of the firebox). This will involve disconnecting the gas line from the burner. The blower is on the floor of the control compartment and is attached to the rear wall of the control compartment. Whoever installed it, has it aimed in the wrong direction. Which is can of hard to do, since there is an arrow on it, pointing in the UP direction. Once you unplug it, you can take out the sheet metal screws that hold it in place, and it will be quite obvious which way the exhaust should face. Which is UP.

Now that I've told you how to do all of that, I must be totally honest, by telling you, the blower will not increase it's efficiency. Your Direct Vent Gas Fireplace is rated as a Decorative Gas Appliance only. It is not heater rated. In fact, 80 % of all the heat goes out the direct vent. The only real heat, is generated off the glass, once it's hot.

So now, you get the chance to make the decision. With all that's involved, is worth changing the blower and not really gain anything?

If you have a wood burning, brick fireplace Heat-a-Lator, just turning the fan motor around, so that it's pulling air into the chamber, will solve the problem.

I really hope all of this has helped you. If I can be of further assistance please let me know. Thanks.

How do we install a burner on a fireplace?


Thinking of adding a fireplace or wood stove to your home? If so, proper installation and maintenance is absolutely critical to ensuring the fire stays inside your freestanding fireplace or wood stove and doesn't venture outside of it.

If your manufactured home already has a fireplace or wood stove, it's a good idea to go look over these safety guidelines to confirm that it was installed correctly. If you plan to install a fireplace or wood stove, follow these safety guidelines carefully.

First, don't try to tackle this project yourself. While installation manuals usually provide all the instructions necessary for a manufactured home owner to install a wood-burning fireplace or wood stove, the consequences of a mistake are so disastrous, it's a task best left to experts.

It's a good idea to first check with your insurance company for their guidelines before installing these items. Your insurance policy may not cover damages if a fireplace or wood stove was not professionally installed. Plus, the manufacturer's warranty on the fireplace or wood stove may not apply unless the unit is installed by a professional.

My fireplace was purched in 2005. Since then I have replaced the Vanguard Thermal/rheostat blower twice, the last time was last fall. It is now going bad. Is there a problem with these blowers? My next one...


I have not heard of a problem with the blowers or a recall. But depending on what unit you have, and who you purchase the blower from, perhaps you could get a warranty so that you aren't spending out of pocket everytime. The original Vangaurd manufacturer, Desa International, went out of business in 2008, but there is a new company that took over some lines of the units and are still making the blowers for most of them. They hold a warranty on the blowers if you purchase is from a Distributor. I hope this helps a little!

I am looking for an installation manual for Model FUBSK blower motor kit. We bought a new home and the Lennox Superior wood burning fireplace Model BC-36 has a switch that should force heat out into the...


The fan should be installed behind the bottom grill, and then it should blow air around the firebox which then exits out the top grill. Now saying that, let me explain the actual problem you will face. Because you have a open faced wood fireplace, you will not get the heat your looking for, the fire needs 400 cubic feet of air per hour and that air is taken from your opening. Also the inner box doesn't heat up enuff to produce alot of heat on the skin so if you have the fan blowing full blast, it will only cycle the air and not allow it time to heat up as it cycles around the box. I suggest turning the fan speed down so its 1/2 way on or lower, this allows the air time to heat while cycling around the box, but in the end you still won't have a good heater as the fireplace itself isn't one, you should look at having it converted to direct vent gas or ripping it out and replacing it with a airtight wood.

Fireplace will not stay lit and pilot light is on


This sounds like the high temperature switch has failed and is telling the unit to shut down after it gets started, the pilot has to be lit for the main gas valve to turn on when the thermostat calls for heat, The main burner comes on and stays on until the thermostat is satisfied and tells it to shut off, you dont say if there is a blower in this unit, if there is a blower after the main flame comes on the unit heats up it turns on the blower if equiped. If the blower fails to turn on the unit would be shut down on overtemp as the firebox would get to hot and be in danger of causeing a fire. if no blower there still is an overtemp switch that shuts the unit down if it gets to hot or the switch is bad, it could be a bad overtemp switch or if equiped a bad blower motor or even a plugged chimney as this would also cause a overheat ing condition. Hope This Helps Don
