It looks like you can, but o to the HeanGlo website and click on the link to Customer Support.

My guess is, they will refer you to a dealer because of liability issues.

Check the thermocouple, it generates the electrical power from the flame of the pilot to open the gas valve.

The switch that turns on the heat in my twin star charmglow fireplace burned out, is there a replacement switch that you sell?


I'm sorry, but we don't sell any parts or appliances here on FixYa. We simply provide information on how troubleshoot and/or repair many things. With that said, I can tell you, from what you described, you need more than just and ON/OFF Switch, if in fact, it "burned out". Something else electrically is wrong with your electric fireplace-heater to cause that.

Unfortunately, you failed to mention the Model Number of your Charm Glow Fireplace, so I can't steer you, to where you may be able to find a replacement switch. If you can provide that information, I may be able to help you.

My fireplace pilot lite wont stay lite


There is a valve which you are bypassing when you press the pilot button. It is usually a sealed hydralic valve which holds the gas on as long as a flame is on the bulb. This expands the fluid and keeps the gas valve open. If the bulb moved and is not in the flame, or near enough, it will not stay on. Also since it sat for a year the internal workings of the valve could have "gummed" up. You need to replace the valve. You did not mention the name or model of the unit. Do a search with your units brand name followed by heater followed by parts. This should return dealers who can supply the part you need. Let me know if you need anymore help.

My heat n glow fireplace comes on fine with all burners running but shuts off about 5 seconds later. it seems the sensor that detects a flame thinks the fire has not started and shuts down the gas. Is...


You may have a few sensors, one may be a thermopile that energizes the pilot. It is a very thin but long bulb located in the pilot flame. Then you may have something called a thermopile which is also located in the pilot flame that energizes the main gas valve. It is a larger diameter bulb and will have metal wrapped wireg going to the gas valve. If the pilot stays on but the flame goes out under the logs, change your thermopile and look for a bad connection at the gas valve or switch. If both the main burner and the pilot goes out you may have a gas valve problem or a plugged vent pipe. If the flame just disappears it is most likely a gas valve. If the flame changes colors and lifts from the burner, that is a sign of a plugged vent. Good luck.

No heat


Obviously everything does not work , otherwise you would have heat. You need to tell the story: is this a new installation? Is this the first time this happened and is it only one season old? Have you checked the gas valve to be open ? Is this unit have an electric connection or a pug-in transformer (like a charger unit ) or is there a battery in the ignition control? Or is it a spark starter like you see on barbaque grills and the spark is not ticking? Or does this unit have a pilot light that first must ignite from the contol unit?
Some pilots get clogged and won't light, therefore the sensor that feels the pilot flame will not tell the gas control valve to operate.Good Luck. Macgivor

Marco gas fireplace shuts off


This an easy fix. What you must do is remove the dust from the pilot safety. I use rust buster from ace hardware to gently flush the hole. If ther is no hole just shoot a tiny drop or 2 into the pilot burner where the flame comes out. Blow it out (I use a piece of tubing). The problem is the dust drops the pilot flame to a point where it won't heat the thermocouple hot enough to jold the magnet and after 30 minutes she quits. THIS is a picture of where to clean the ODS pilots in your rig.
