Our fireplace is 22 years old and we are not able to start the fireplace.


Is this a flame effect electric fireplace with a fan heater underneath it?

If it is, the bulb has gone. Remove the coal or logs and remove the cover. You will see the bulb.

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 won't light


Your fireplace does have a pilot. It is either millivolt, where you manually light the pilot and use a remote or wall switch to light the logs
or is IPI where it still has a pilot light but the reote or wall switch lights the pilot first then the logs. The second version has a non-standing pilot. In either case, it sounds like a pilot assembly issue. When you "throw the switch", do you hear clicking inside the fireplace? If so and it does not light, you may have a pilot assembly issue. If there is no sound at all, then you may have a bigger issue with the control module. The only sure way to know which is the culprit is to have a certified technician come oput and examine your fireplace.

Majestic gas fireplace troubleshooting


Is your log set remote driven? Do you have the room temperature set in it? You may have inadvertently set the room temperature for a certain range. Or you may have a thermopile going bad. Do you have any other remote driven appliances affected at the same time? I.E.: Do you change tv channels and the logs go off?

Light for flame went out. How do I replace it?


Remove the firebox glass (actually it's plexiglass) and set off to the side out of the way. Now, Remove the logs from simulated burner and set off to the side out of the way. The glowing coal effect plastic panel under where the logs were, should lift out, exposing the 60 watt, small base, chandelier bulbs, They unscrew counterclockwise from their individual holders. Replace the bulbs and reinstall everything else in reverse order, from the way you took it out. Caution: Be sure the Master On/Off Switch for the fireplace is in the OFF position, before starting any work on the fireplace.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem.

I recently bought a house w/ a Marco gas fireplace and there is no owners manual. I have never used a gas fireplace, so I have no experience with this. I would really like to get an owners manual, but...


www.macro-fireplace.net is the manufacture's website where you can request a manual for free.
I haven't located any others but I will keep you posted if and when I find one.

Suspect the bulb has gone out on my fireplace logs .


Yes - bubs are 120vac with a small base - not the standard light bulb type - more like the larger outdoor Christmas lights. There are 3 bulbs required. I'd consider going with the compact flourescent - they give off less heat.

Need Instructions to use Fireplace Gas Logs


There should be a set of metal cards attached inside the fireplace.
First you should read everything there.

I know you have to first light the pilot light.
And then there should be a wall switch.

The problem I have currently is that it won't stay lit when the artificial logs are there.
