SOURCE: I need help relighting the

First, turn the wall switch to the off position. Second, turn the key all the way tcountercockwise to the open position. At the front of the unit, below the hearth opening there is a black front access panel. Should have a little recessed part. pull it out and expose the gas valve. Turn the plunger/knob that says off, on, pilot to the pilot position. You'll knw your in the pilot position when it lines up with the indicator (usually a red or black mark on the gas valve body). If you are in the pilot position, you will be able to push in the pilot (it will feel springy). Push the plunger in and then push the red button (piezo ignition button) in until it makes a snapping sound. You may have to do this several times because the air has to bleed out from the pilot tubing. This should light the pilot BUT wait. DO NOT LET GO OF THE PLUNGER ONCE THE PILOT IS LIT. You need to keep the plunger depressed for about 30 seconds and then let it go. After 30 seconds let the plunger go and verify the pilot is lit. If not try the last step over. After the pilot is lit, you may turn the plunger/knob to the on position. Now go back to the wall switch and flip it on. If it doesn't come on tap it hard. Sometimes dust can actually prevent it from making good connection. I work on fireplaces for a living and coincidentally worked on this model today. Simple as pie.

It is to allow more or less ambient air into the combustion area.

SOURCE: Where does the FBK200 blower

As you are aware the Marco Fireplace Co is no longer in business. However, the blower model # you listed is a DESA/Vanguard part number. In any event, it may work.

The blower goes in the lower compartment (probably louvered) under the firebox. It is then attached to the rear wall of the compartment, with the blower output facing up the back wall of the firebox. There should be an arrow on the blower housing indicating which way it should point.

If your firebox is already wired for a blower and has a duplex receptacle in place (for the blower to plug into), you're in business. If it doesn't I highly recommend that you install one and not try to hard wire the blower.

The blower, if purchased new, should come will all the hardware to mount it. If it didn't you can use sheet metal screws to attach it to the rear wall of the firebox. However, make sure that you put a rubber flat washer behind the mounting frame and then screw thru it into the firebox wall. This will help eliminate vibration and noise.

Hope this helps to get you started.

So long as the fireplace is NOT IN USE, you are safe to block the draft, most any way you want.

Unfortunately, you didn't list the model number of your fireplace and whether it's vented or vent-free. However, I suspect it's vented, as MARCO (now out of business) manufactured very few vent-free models. Restoration is going to depend on the condition of the burners, as well as the gas control valve and the condition of the firebox. The small ports you mentioned, are for the Rock Wool (Glowing Embers), which are divided into small pieces (dime size) and fluffed, then placed over the small ports. MARCO did not make a vented fireplace where silica sand was used on top of the burners. Normally, you only see that on vented gas log set, that is installed in a solid fuel burning (masonry) fireplace and operated with the damper fully open.

As far as restoration parts are concerned, I seriously doubt there are any available. MARCO, as such, has been out of business for almost 10 years. Today's burners are not designed for the same configuration that you have. It wouldn't be wise to try to change the configuration, as the firebox was tested and approved for only what's in there now.

Wish I had better news for you. But, my 15 years in the hearth and home business, tells me it would difficult and costly to do.
