If it blows back to the fire then does it not blow hot air out of the vent at the top of the fireplace?

Posted on Dec 10, 2016

Testimonial: "Nope, I get no air blowing out of the top or bottom. The fab just goes on and blows back toward the rear of the fireplace."

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.

Blade on fireplace heat o lator appears to be turning the wrong way. Heat does not come out of the top of the fireplace. What do I do to be able to take out the heat o later and reverse the fan?


Roger. it depends of whether this is a Gas Fireplace or a Wood Burning Fireplace?

If it's a direct vent gas fireplace, the blower was installed incorrectly. To access the blower, you will have to dismantle most of the interior of the firebox and the burner tray (Interior floor of the firebox). This will involve disconnecting the gas line from the burner. The blower is on the floor of the control compartment and is attached to the rear wall of the control compartment. Whoever installed it, has it aimed in the wrong direction. Which is can of hard to do, since there is an arrow on it, pointing in the UP direction. Once you unplug it, you can take out the sheet metal screws that hold it in place, and it will be quite obvious which way the exhaust should face. Which is UP.

Now that I've told you how to do all of that, I must be totally honest, by telling you, the blower will not increase it's efficiency. Your Direct Vent Gas Fireplace is rated as a Decorative Gas Appliance only. It is not heater rated. In fact, 80 % of all the heat goes out the direct vent. The only real heat, is generated off the glass, once it's hot.

So now, you get the chance to make the decision. With all that's involved, is worth changing the blower and not really gain anything?

If you have a wood burning, brick fireplace Heat-a-Lator, just turning the fan motor around, so that it's pulling air into the chamber, will solve the problem.

I really hope all of this has helped you. If I can be of further assistance please let me know. Thanks.

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.

Gas fireplace question


Simulated gas log fireplaces usually don't have a blower of any type. They depend on the radiant and conducted heat much like there was a real wood fire in the firebox. Look in the manual to determine if a blower was included, but I doubt it because of risk that CO would be propelled into the living space.

GAS FIREPLACE


Yes, hopefully changing the thermocouple (skinny sensor) or thermopile(fat sensor) would do the trick.
Start with these fairly inexpensive repairs first.
Unfortunately if the honeywell valve is bad a new one can be expensive.
Also it is hard to order parts from Majestic, they just went bankrupt, not to long ago and Martin is taking them over. You might look for your valves model# and check online for other suppliers of that model# or ask for a compatible Direct Vent gas valve that's not as problematic. (eBay and HVAC dealers, etc.)
FYI:
You said it's been about 5 years, you might decide it's less of a hassle to have new gas fireplace installed. Martin and Empire are probably two of the best, with 5 year parts and labor warrantys.
Hope you find some success in your endeavor.
