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?

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.

Good Luck

You will have to connect a 12v dc power supply to the flame motor. The controller on the board has fried. I built a regulated 12 v dc power supply and tapped it into the bulb circuit so it will power the motor when the bulbs come on. You may have to find an electrician or techie to rig this up safely.Good luck!

There is a capacitor that is bad. The capacitor regulates the phase of an AC motor. It looks like a can shaped object.

Muskoka electric fireplace ,the switch doesnt work


  • Unplug the fireplace
  • Open up the fireplace to gain access to the inside.
  • Inspect switch for charring, melting, etc.
  • Inspect circuit board for charring etc.
  • If indeed the switch is the culprit: then...
  • Unhook the wires from the switch.
  • Remove the switch.
  • Bring the switch into your local hardware store or radio shack.
  • Buy a compatible switch - pay attention to amperage markings etc. so your new switch can handle the power.
  • Install new switch and re-hook up the wiring.
  • Close up the fireplace and enjoy...

Flame has stopped flickering on our Century Heating electric fireplace, model HEF26. Fuses or motor?


Probably, neither. If there's no brightness at all, the bulbs are burned out and need to be replaced. If the brightness is there, but no flickering, then it's probably the motor or the shaft that the bulbs are on is stuck and can't rotate. Really not an uncommon problem with electric fireplaces, no matter who the manufacturer is. If you don't hear a humming noise when the flame function is turned ON. the motor may have overheated and shut down.

To test this, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the fireplace from the wall outlet. Wait 12 - 15 minutes. Plug the unit back in and Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Turn just the flame function ON. If it starts right up, the motor has cooled and the unit reset itself. If this continues to occur on a regular basis, contact the manufacturer's Technical Service Dept. If nothing happened after it was turned back ON, contact the manufacturer for replacement parts.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Flame does not flicke in my electric fireplace


if flame not flickering and you can see the globes lighting flame its the fan that moves the ribbons is faulty unless it has fuse to it which may have blown, but how the flame works is by globes lighting through ribbons that are moved by a fan to give a flicker effect unless its rotating glass wheel like some, that turn with the globes behind that give you a flickering effect its always better with electrical to have an electrician look if it was the globes yes that is an easy replace but to change a fan or rotating glass wheels

Flame doesn't flicker


The "flicker" function in my unit operates with a system of rotating, reflective fins. The tiny, AC synchronous motor driving the fins failed and I got one one-line for cheap. A fairly simple R&R.

Only downside is the motor does not always start in the proper direction, but a start/stop or two resolves the issue.
