Says it is designed for propane only. I am well acquainted with propane and propane stoves.
Usually to adjust the air there is a small cap that covers a cut out in the feed tube
This does not have it .
Some you can adjust the coupling hook up. This one does not appear to be that style
Anyone have any info on adjusting the air intake as the flame is very high and burning yellow
Any info wiuld be appreciated

More than likely it's the Thermal overload circuit or the heating element has given up the ghost.
As I just told one other questioner. These types of electric fireplace heaters were not designed to run for long periods of time. Their heat output is not much more than a blow drier. However, this is not just a problem with CharmGlo, it's with all the manufacturers.
Here's the problem ... The heaters work by taking in cool air, heating it and sending it back out via the blower. Over time, the heating element and/or blower become clogged with dust, lint and/or pet hair. This makes the heating element work harder and it over heats. Either burning out the heating element or the thermal overload switch or both.
You can try cleaning the heating element with a vacuum that has a hose and a brush attachment. While you're at it clean the blower fins and motor. Consult your Owners Manual to see how to access these parts, as they are under firebox, behind the metal grill on the bottom of the firebox, so to speak.
Depends what is actually wrong with fan, if tis the blower barrel part you can by replacements but if its the fan and you van't find manufacturer try an commercial or indutrial fan place to match the one you have be careful to make sure that it is electrically compatible and that it will connect to heater safely and do as old fan did as fan speeds on heaters can be important
You will need a manometer to determine your gas pressure, the amount required is posted on your appliance. Take both a static and dynamic reading on the inlet side of the gas valve. If it is not high enough consult a plumber. If it is take a reading on the manifold side. If the gas pressure is too low again consult a plumber. If it is within spec check orifaces and burner tubes if any for debris and spiders.
I have the same problem with my Charglo fireplace. The propane company checked preasure and they even replaced the regulator. I am very disappointed with this and am afraid to use it. I have contacted Charmglo in the past and they were useless.
