I have a QCM707 fireplace. The heat works and the back light works but the "flames" don't work. Do you have a possible solution for this.

My unit puts out heat on both 750 and 1500 watts but the thermostat doesn't do anything. Not sure if there was a remote as my wife bought if from a friend. Could the lack of a remote be causing the thermostat to be inoperable. How can I tell if a remote came with it? Can I bypass the remote if there was one?

I have one similar to that and the "flames" are a rotating piece of metal that gives the illusion of flickering. it has a small DC motor turning it. My issue was resolved by my normal troubleshooting curiosity. It had bound up and luckily not burnt up (sorry had to use at least one corny metaphor) Your issue will require you to at minimum, pull back off, unplugged of course, and put your hands on the drive to your flame twirler. You did notice that the "flame pattern" repeats itself every 12 seconds or so when watching from the couch? Now go be the hero of the cozy world! ~~~SC

Testimonial: "Thanks SC. I have taken back off and the rotating piece is not turning but I was able to turn it by hand with no effort but it still doesn't turn on its own"

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?

SOURCE: I have a pyromaster electric fireplace model HEF

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

I have the same problem. I removed the top cover and the circuit board was black around the fuse clips. I looked further and the fuse clip had heated up so much that it had separated from the board. I will contact the manufacturer tommorrow and see what they wii do for me

SOURCE: Charmglow Electric Fireplace ***NO HEAT** just lights up, HELP :(

Take the fan power switch apart and clean the 2 point contacts. Also clean the 4 male studs that the wires plug into. That should solve the problem.

Flame Electric Fireplace Electric Fireplace Heat


Fireplaces have become the heart of the home, a warm place to gather with friends and family. Fireplaces turn any blank wall into a gorgeous focal point. A fireplace fits any decor and is a stylish addition to any room. Electric fireplace logs have improved greatly over the past few years and now days can look so good that they can fool people into believing that they are looking at a real fire, something which is especially true when you have crackling effect of fireplace logs, which aim to imitate the sound of a real fire.

Even though electric fireplaces do not generate flame, most provide the effect of a fire, which ranges from an orange light shined through plastic logs to simulate the appearance of coals burning, to an elaborate flame projection on the doors of some of the free-standing models. If you need a fireplace to heat your home you may want to consider a gas fireplace for better efficiency. If you need a fireplace for more decorative purposes a cheap electric burning unit might better suit your needs. The electric fireplace has experienced a quantum leap from those electric logs with reflective tin foil drums that adorned the hearth while the lava lamps were in vogue. An electric fireplace can add a great deal to a home, in terms of both form and function, and are also very effective at heating up a room.

Electric fireplace heaters simulate the look of a fireplace, but don't actually burn gas or wood like a traditional fireplace. Electric fireplace inserts simply fit into existing fireplaces and provide an artificial fire that creates the warmth and ambiance you want with just a flip of a switch. A modern electric fireplace insert does not require any type of venting system and many units are portable.

Even though these fireplaces do not generate flame, most provide the effect of a fire, which ranges from an orange light shined through plastic logs to simulate the appearance of coals burning, to an elaborate flame projection on the doors of some of the free-standing models. They plug into the wall, and can run on a "flame only" setting, or can be used as a heater, typically with 4,500–5,000 BTU (4,700–5,300 kJ), that can heat a 400 sq ft (37 m2) room. Since there is no real flame or combustion taking place, electric fireplace heaters release no toxic fumes or dangerous gases.

Everyone knows that a fireplace is about more than heat, especially when you're looking at a real fire, when one of the most entrancing things about it is the fact that you can see real flames. Most electric logs use a standard 110 volt power source, and come with various levels of flame of brightness. By choosing a really good set of electric fireplace logs, and particularly those which have a crackling effect and real flames, you can be assured that your fireplace will not be simply a unit in the room to make the room feel warm, but will be something that you enjoy looking at as well.

Electric fireside inserts are also a good option if there are issues with your hearth which make them a hazard with wood burning fires. Electric fireplace log inserts typically include an electric fireplace log set and an ember bed, and inserts are incredibly easy to install. Electric fireplace inserts are safe and clean. Most importantly whether you choose a modern electric fireplace or any other type make sure it will be most cost effective and suitable for its purpose in your home.

Gas fireplace will not light up


If it has a pilot light, (website says it does) I suspect its the thermocouple. These are easy to change yourself and cheap, you can buy a universal thermocouple and it will be cheaper than a Napolean one. The end of the thermocouple is a fat copper pin that sits poking into a small pilot flame. The heat of the flame on the copper tells the system that the gas is burning ok so it allows more gas through. But after a few years the copper end gets covered in black charring and this slightly insulates it from the heat, so it signals to turn off the gas.

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.

Turned down the fireplace accidently turned it off. The pilot can be pushed in however it is not igniting . Can it be lit manually


If your getting a flame when igniting, and your still pressing in on the pilot then all you need to do is hold it in for about 30 seconds or so. This is because theres a thermal cutout then needs to heat up form the pilot to keep the flame lit.
If you've got no flame at all then you should look at your fireplace manual and see if theres an alternative to lighting the pilot. I wouldn't recommend opening it to light the pilot.
