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

SOURCE: Charmglow electric fireplace flame does not

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!

What kind of a light bulb is needed for the febo flame electric fireplace?


Flickering flame fires generally use a fairly ordinary tungsten filament incandescent bulb, except the Fireglow bulbs are coated with an amber coloured lacquer. The heat from the bulb causes an upward current of air causing a small "windmill" to turn and cause the light to flicker.
That is the traditional method but ultra modern fires might use a higher-tech solution.

Fire wont flicker on my electric fireplace


most of those electric fireplaces have a band of paper with holes in it that rotates around a light bulb this gives the illusion that the fire is flickering the motors that rotate that band of paper go out all the time its just a little electric motor you might be able to get one from the manufacture

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

Flickering lights have stopped working


basically, on the bottom of the fireplace, there are 2 screws on the sides, 3 on the back, take them off, lift bottom (it wont come off, so be careful not to bend it) there are 3 christmas light type bulbs, you can find them at any hardware store. Just replace them. Problem solved.

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.
