Most of those electric fireplaces have a band of paper with holes in it that rotates around a light bulb this gives the illusion that the fire is flickering the motors that rotate that band of paper go out all the time its just a little electric motor you might be able to get one from the manufacture

Flame Electric Fireplace Electric Fireplace Heat


Fireplaces have become the heart of the home, a warm place to gather with friends and family. Fireplaces turn any blank wall into a gorgeous focal point. A fireplace fits any decor and is a stylish addition to any room. Electric fireplace logs have improved greatly over the past few years and now days can look so good that they can fool people into believing that they are looking at a real fire, something which is especially true when you have crackling effect of fireplace logs, which aim to imitate the sound of a real fire.

Even though electric fireplaces do not generate flame, most provide the effect of a fire, which ranges from an orange light shined through plastic logs to simulate the appearance of coals burning, to an elaborate flame projection on the doors of some of the free-standing models. If you need a fireplace to heat your home you may want to consider a gas fireplace for better efficiency. If you need a fireplace for more decorative purposes a cheap electric burning unit might better suit your needs. The electric fireplace has experienced a quantum leap from those electric logs with reflective tin foil drums that adorned the hearth while the lava lamps were in vogue. An electric fireplace can add a great deal to a home, in terms of both form and function, and are also very effective at heating up a room.

Electric fireplace heaters simulate the look of a fireplace, but don't actually burn gas or wood like a traditional fireplace. Electric fireplace inserts simply fit into existing fireplaces and provide an artificial fire that creates the warmth and ambiance you want with just a flip of a switch. A modern electric fireplace insert does not require any type of venting system and many units are portable.

Even though these fireplaces do not generate flame, most provide the effect of a fire, which ranges from an orange light shined through plastic logs to simulate the appearance of coals burning, to an elaborate flame projection on the doors of some of the free-standing models. They plug into the wall, and can run on a "flame only" setting, or can be used as a heater, typically with 4,500–5,000 BTU (4,700–5,300 kJ), that can heat a 400 sq ft (37 m2) room. Since there is no real flame or combustion taking place, electric fireplace heaters release no toxic fumes or dangerous gases.

Everyone knows that a fireplace is about more than heat, especially when you're looking at a real fire, when one of the most entrancing things about it is the fact that you can see real flames. Most electric logs use a standard 110 volt power source, and come with various levels of flame of brightness. By choosing a really good set of electric fireplace logs, and particularly those which have a crackling effect and real flames, you can be assured that your fireplace will not be simply a unit in the room to make the room feel warm, but will be something that you enjoy looking at as well.

Electric fireside inserts are also a good option if there are issues with your hearth which make them a hazard with wood burning fires. Electric fireplace log inserts typically include an electric fireplace log set and an ember bed, and inserts are incredibly easy to install. Electric fireplace inserts are safe and clean. Most importantly whether you choose a modern electric fireplace or any other type make sure it will be most cost effective and suitable for its purpose in your home.

I have a prolectrix wall mounted bowed fireplace model BG-D4. The fan quit working and now it overheats and shuts down. Is there a fuse or a reset button?


I don't know this specific product but if it is designed to run with the fan, it will overheat if the fan stops and shut down. Often, the shut down is by a thermal cutout, so just wait for it to cool dow.. You may have to remove power.

What thermostat will work for my gas fireplace?modelwh060396b 07/2006 has remote want a wall mount


A search for that model number did not yield any results. A brand name would help.
That said, if your gas fireplace has a milivolt valve with "TH" and "TP/TH" terminals on the side (for hooking up a remote, thermostat, or switch), then you can use a universal wireless wall system.
You can find wireless wall systems for gas fireplaces HERE.

I bought a PROlectrix Balmoral electric fireplace but there are no instructions with it...


Hello! Do a search.. there is one company.. something like smgeneral that has instructions you can download free.
Looks like the instructions are easy enough, but it will take two people unless you can support the fireplace somehow. Most of it is safety. I bought one of these, but have not opened the box.. just saw your problem and remember seeing directions. Search was: prolectrix balmoral electric wall fireplace and found instructions. Good Luck!
