The number you provided is for a blower kit. However, I was able to find a pdf for you that should describe your fireplace. See this link:

http://www.lennoxhearthproducts.com/resources/manual/725024%20NC-%20BCF_BRF_38_43(C&O).pdf

The blower kit is described at the end of the manual.

I bought an Insta Flame model FSDV 30 direct vent wall furnace, need a natural gas conversion kit. It currently is set up for propane and could use some help in finding the parts and installing them.


There is a ban on that particular furnace as they can explode!

You won't find parts or anyone that will work on it.

Vent free heater tune up


An ODS space heater is a nice way to keep warm on the nastiest winter nights. It does not require power either so when the lights go out the ODS space heater keeps on truckin. This vent -free system is used on most fireplaces and space heaters today. A heater/fireplace using the vent-free system sits idle in summer months and dust gets a chance to accumulate in the pilot safety. After lighting the pilot and starting the heater all will be fine for a few minutes then the pilot goes out and heat fades away. The thermocouple for these is a superior grade one that is much costlier to buy than an ordinary t-couple. Lots of folks buy a new thermocouple only to realize that didn't fix the prob. Well I have the solution. I took some photos:


Each year just before the cold season you should at least vacuum the grates for flame unity and blow the cobwebs out the pilot to avoid having problems. Hope this helps someone.
A nice video from Micheal Holigan which explains how it works.

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.

My vented gas firs place keep gping into flame lift off. Hos do i fix this flame lift off. My gas log pro says i have to take the box out.??


I would suggest looking under the bottom louver of your fireplace as you have a b-vent or direct vent gas fireplace. From the looks of it alone it appears as its an early model Heat-N-Glo fireplace. If you flip down the bottom panel, where the two gold strips are at, underneath the gas valve you will find a sticker or a plate that has the model, manufacturer, and serial number. I work for a manufacturer that has been in the fireplace business for over 30 years and I'm betting $10 to a donut that is a Heat-N-Glo fireplace. Once you get the model, manufactuer, serial number, and date code sometimes you can search at www.heatnglo.com for AUTHORIZED dealers who can service your fireplace properly instead of a chimney sweep who may or may not be qualified to "trouble shoot" what is going on with the fireplace. It looks like an 8000GDV to me.
Best guess is a new pilot assembly if its a direct vent. If its a b-vent then a high limit switch might be needed as well with it cutting off that fast. It also could be a flue disconnect. Long story short I would find out the model, manufacturer, and then get on the manufacturer's website or call them to find out an AUTHORIZED servicing dealer for your fireplace. I hope this helps.

Its to hot


Are the flames more than a couple of inches high? Do they have a lot of yellow coloring to them? Please be sure that the orifice for the fireplace is converted to the proper gas type. A common mistake is to have a natural gas orifice in a LP fireplace. The flames are way too high and the heat is very intense and this creates a very unsafe fire hazard situation. You may want to have a qualified technician come out and examine the fireplace for you.

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.

Napoleon Fireplace propane Pilot won't light main burner even though gas flows in?


  • I'm going to assume your fireplace has a pilot light.
  • Follow the little holes in the burner that lead to the pilot light.
  • Make sure the pilot flame is pointing directly at the closest burner hole. (adjust if necessary).
  • Often, you will need to sprinkle a layer of "glowing embers" in this area. The embers will help the gas travel to the pilot light and ignite.
  • Always start your propane appliance on "High" never "Low". Cold propane likes to drop to the bottom of the firebox and accumulate until it reaches the pilot (this is called delayed ignition). Keeping it on "high" will help the fuel travel over to the pilot without buildup.

Fireplace will start but shuts off in about 30 seconds


Here's a few things to look for. After you light the pilot and turn on the burner, look at the pilot flame. Is it still a strong blue flame and it is still heating the thermocouple? If the pilot flame is a lazy yellow, it may not be able to keep a good enough flame on the thermocouple to keep it hot. The solution? Turn it all off and let it cool down. Take a can of compressed air, like you use to clean computer keyboards, and using the attached straw, blow out the dust or spider web that's partially blocking your pilot orifice. Where the pilot flame is usually lit, blow right down that flange, as well as through the air hole that is on the side of the pilot assembly. If you do it right, the pilot flame should be a nice and strong blue color. Another thought. Is this a vented or unvented fireplace? If it's vented, make sure it has the oxygen it needs to burn by checking for blocked vents or opening a closed fireplace fume above it.

I am looking for an installation manual for Model FUBSK blower motor kit. We bought a new home and the Lennox Superior wood burning fireplace Model BC-36 has a switch that should force heat out into the...


The fan should be installed behind the bottom grill, and then it should blow air around the firebox which then exits out the top grill. Now saying that, let me explain the actual problem you will face. Because you have a open faced wood fireplace, you will not get the heat your looking for, the fire needs 400 cubic feet of air per hour and that air is taken from your opening. Also the inner box doesn't heat up enuff to produce alot of heat on the skin so if you have the fan blowing full blast, it will only cycle the air and not allow it time to heat up as it cycles around the box. I suggest turning the fan speed down so its 1/2 way on or lower, this allows the air time to heat while cycling around the box, but in the end you still won't have a good heater as the fireplace itself isn't one, you should look at having it converted to direct vent gas or ripping it out and replacing it with a airtight wood.
