Question about Coleman 10' X 10' Sundome Tent 9160K101

3 Answers

I have a Coleman model FL 28-R electric fireplace, contract # 230811 (made in China). The heating element is not functioning. I removed same and tested the resistor on top next to the tempurature control switch, no power gets through. Where can I either get a new resistor or the entire heat element unit?

There is a fuse located over the heating element in front of the fan. It sits over a small slot above the heating element (probably to cause it to stop working by design). Yes I'm a pessimist. It can be bypassed if it is an emergency by wiring across it. I'm trying to find the replacement fuse now (10amp jet 250v #00575) If you find it please send info to warfalcon23@Gmail.com. I hope we all get our heaters working, for $250 + dollars you'd expect it to last longer than 1 month.

    I have a similar problem. I have a FL18-R and both fan and heat are not working. Any solutions?

    I have the same problem as well. Did u get yours fix?

    I wired in an in-line fuse holder and stuck a 10A fuse in it, (just in case I need to open the back up again). Works like new, (of course, mine was only a couple of months old when it failed also). Hope that helps...

    just bought the FL18 at a garage sale for 40. bucks...fan and heater not working, although the fire and flame effect is. What are these things worth new?

Same problem. Couldn\'t be in a more inconvenient place! First tried removing the back.... Isn\'t that usually where everyone starts?! Found it easier to just remove the screws at the top. The lid just comes right off. I don\'t build these things but having a fuse sitting above the heater just seems like a poor idea! Now... Removing that fuse is not easy! Amazing how just thin metal can hold that in that that tight. I was successful removing the side that the fuse wire coils around as for the other side.. Well.. In the end I just tore it out. It would not free itself from the clamp. Something so small made me sweat too much! One person commented that they put kind like an extender. Good idea! Put it where it is convenient to change if it happens again and it won\'t be baking over the heater that was most likely the problem for the fuse to blow in the first place! Yes it was torture to fix the beast but I now have a new talent under my belt... Fuse Coleman fireplace replacer extraordinaire good luck on your future torture if you buy this product new or used. Hope this was somewhat helpful. Cheers all!

    Lisa, the fuse does not have to sit over the cutout of the heater? I also have two white wires the are on the right side of the fan. One I know goes to the fuse, the other I am not sure. Just bought this from another owner and they had it torn apart. The wire I am not sure about is the wire that is connected to the left side of the fan and runs behind the fan to the right side. Any idea where that wire connects?

It may need repairing, do not take risks trying to fix it without an expert. But its 4 years old so its better to replace it with new.

Electric fireplace #230811 model no. fl 23-r has no heat and no fan. doesnt say sunbeam or dimplex anywhere on it. resistance readings on thermostat and switches seem fine. It has a circuit board on it....


These models have thermal fuses in them. You can hear them click when the fan isn't turning. Mine needed the fan axle to be greased up. Once I disassembled it and greased it up with some High-Temp grease it ran like new. No more clicking off.

Electric fireplace does not heat


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?

Sunbeam electric fireplace


Most likely sounds like the thermal fuse has gone out. if you take off the top of the fireplace you will find a little metal tube in front of the blower. This is the thermal fuse if it has gone out only your fan will blow and the heating element will not put out heat. You can pick one of the fuses up at radio shack for 3 dollars. the only problem is how to go about repacing it since it was crimped in and you can't use a soldering iron because it will trip it. If I come up with a way to change it I will let you know so far I can't.
