SOURCE: failure to establish flame
I the electrical gas switch valve set to on? If not...
Is there also a gas valve and is it on? If so...
Does the exhaust fan turn freely?
If not then then electrical gas valve will not open the gas valve. I have seen these bearing get loose and then the exhaust tips toward the inside inhibiting the fan from turning. Note: this is not the large blower but a smaller fan for the exhaust fumes.
Is the Vacuum hose from the exhaust to the sensor in good condition and attached at both ends? If not fix hose or connect both ends.
When repairing a unit, many tech will turn off the gas for saftey.

Hi , you can try and pull the panel on the bottom of fireplace out and check the adapter in fireplace. Sometimes they go bad. When you open in also check to see if there is an adapter plugged in and a option to use the battery operated function. If this goes bad the pilot will not stay lit.

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?

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.

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.
