SOURCE: twinstar electric fireplace - fireplace heat comes

I have the same problem. Heats fine for a 1 minute then 'click', and no more heat. If I turn it off and wait a few minutes, 'click' and it will blow heat again (for 1 minute...).

Link from Mike didn't help because this is an Electric heater, in an 'amish fireplace'.

I'm thinking it might be a faulty 'thermal fuse' or possibly the thermostat.

Tip

Portable Heat Flame Electric Fireplace


Electric fireplaces are becoming more and more popular with today's homeowner's. The main advantage of the electric fireplace is generally portability, convenience, low initial cost is important. They also are a good choice when the looks are not as important as function.
Some electric fireplaces have simulated flames that give the look of traditional fireplaces. Another great option to include is a built-in fan to help distribute the heat more effectively. With some of these high end units it can be very hard to tell the difference between an electric fireplace and a wood burning stove. Along with this option may come a heatless setting the will give the look of flames but produce no heat. The remote control has also found its way to the fireplace market. There are many units that can be remotely controlled.
Electric fireplaces are generally cheaper than gas fireplaces. A good unit can be bought for about $500 (there are cheaper models available, but they tend to have fewer options and the flames are not as real looking). These fireplace units are fairly easy to install compared to a gas fireplaces or wood-burning stoves (both of which usually need flues to vent). If you can plug in an electric cord then this type of fireplace may be for you. The electric units are perfect for apartment buildings and condominiums. These places are not suitable for the traditional wood fireplace.
Just like other types of portable electric heaters, electric fireplaces will radiate heat very quickly extreme care must be taken to not have any combustibles too close to them.
You will see how an electric fireplace can transform any setting for you. The newest modern, advanced electric units have far more aesthetically appealing views. They might include fiber optic displays, or randomized lights designed to make the look of dancing flames.
Now whether you're living in a condo or apartment and can't have a real fireplace, the electric fireplace can be a great way to get some of the warmth and ambiance. Also remember that these units are very portable, so you can take them with you when it's time to move. Even though I have never been a big fan of electric fireplaces, because of the expense of their operation, I can see why they would be very popular with many apartment or condos owners.

Cleaned filter,how do you reset filter needs cleaning light.


Most of the t-stats have you hold the reset air filter button for 3-5 secs. Or hold 2 buttons at the same time for 3-5 secs(may not be marked air filter. There should be a model# on the back of the t-stat(if you can get it off the wall or separate it from its base). With the name of the maker (brand name) and the model # you should be able to find a PDF online or call the makers customer support # to have them email an owners manual. You should be able to turn the filter reminder off in the programming/installers options. But can't say how to do either w/out knowing brand or model #. Hope this helps!!

Elco fireplace blower wont work


If your blower/fan blows air into a "box" with tubes that conduct heated air out through the screen, that assembly may have failed. I had one that burned out and had to be replaced.

Red is 24v from transformer to terminal R
Green is to Terminal G for the air handler fan motor
Yellow is to Terminal Y for calling cooling to the compressor and fan outdoor unit
White is to Terminal W for calling the heat trips which are usually sequenced to keep them from all coming on at once and over drawing Amps and kick off breakers.
Orange was for outdoor reversing valve for a heatpump system
Blue or Black is usually used for common or negative continuity in the circuit such as Red wire and Blue/Black wire to power a thermostat features on digital T-stats. If not digital T-stat then no common is needed to hook-up at T-stat

Propane fireplace insert won't light


Gas apliances have safety features built into them so you don't blow yourself up. The pilot heats a thermocoupler which tells the gas valve there is a flame, open the main gas to the burner. If you can see the flame area of the pilot look for a round post about 3/16 inch in diamiter. This should be directly in the flame, if not bend the bracket so it is in one side of the pilot flame. The thermocouple is attached to a mounting bracket. This will be held in place by a 1/4 inch hex screw. remove the screw and the capilary tube leading to the gas control valve. Before you do anything, close the main gas supply to the fireplace and disconnect the power to the fan. You may need to semi dismantle the fireplace to get the thermocouple. The gas valve end is a brass 1/4 pipe thread plug. Turn the outer nut and remove without twisting the tube. Reverse this order to install a new one. Besure not to twist the capilary tube, tighten brass nut 1/4 turn past hand tight. Your better heating supply house will have these in stock. Restarting the pilot will take a few tries because the gas was off. Your gas suplier would charge about $75 to fix this. if you don't have the proper tools and it dosen't look pretty stright forward don't do it. You could get dead.
