Make sure that none of the elements are touching each other. Also look for signs of a grounded wire or damage to the heating elements.

I have a Amish looking electric fireplace, Model FL18-r, which has quit heating altho the fake flames still work. I am trying to see if the heater insert can be replaced, where and for how much, or...

There are a couple of reasons the heating unit part of the fireplace stop heating. A dust and lint build up in the heating coils can cause them to burn out. The heater overload circuitry has shut the heater down or has failed or the unit needs to reset. so lets go to the easiest thing for you to do, yourself.

Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the fireplace and wait 12 - 15 minutes before plugging it back in. Then turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Turn ON each individual function of the fireplace, one at a time. If the unit was able to reset itself, each function should work normally. If it doesn't, then one of the issues I listed above is the problem.

If your fireplace is less than one year old, it should still be under warranty. So contact the manufacturer (you can find the contact info in your Owners Manual) about repair or replacement.

One personal aside: None of the electric fireplace/heaters on the market today, have a long trouble free life span. Usually, it's 9 months to a year, when consumers start having problems. I sold these type of appliances for a couple of years, as an adjunct to our gas fireplace and heater business. When they started to become a problem for our customers, we quickly realized, that no matter who the manufacturer is/was, they are not what they are touted to be and we discontinued selling them. It's been 4 years since we discontinued selling them and apparently, nothing has changed in their manufacture. As, I answer more than my share of questions about them, here on FixYa. As one person told me, "I wish I had bought a vent-free gas fireplace instead. It would have cost me more, but would have been more reliable and would still heat, even if the power was out."

I hope this helps you trouble shoot and solve the problem.

Happy Easter!

I was wondering if this heater is costing a lot to run, it never shuts off! I was told I would be shocked to see how much electricity I am consuming.Thanks!

Yes, electric space heaters do use more electricity than most people would expect. And, since yours "never shuts off", your electric company is going to love you. Part of your problem may be, that the heater output is not great enough to heat the area to a temperature that would automatically turn the heater off. So. therefor it runs continually, until you turn it off. Is replacing the existing heater with one that has a greater output the answer? Maybe, but it would use more electricity to maintain a higher output. Hopefully, it would heat the area quickly and turn off quickly, saving you a minimal amount on your electric bill.

For the most part, as far as efficiency is concerned, you can't beat a vent-free gas heater, fireplace or gas logs. They're 99.9% efficient and will even work if the electricity goes off. They come in Natural Gas and Propane (LPG) models and can go just about anywhere in your home, when sized properly. Most have a built-in thermostat to maintain your comfort level. And, unlike and electric heater, the heat is warm and moist ... you feel it quicker and it's more comfortable.

Hope this gave you some insight into portable electric heaters.
