Heater is drawing to many amps for the heater to run correctly check the circuit it is on and possibly move to a different location on a circuit that has more amps from panel box.

I have a Amish looking electric fireplace, Model FL18-r, which has quit heating altho the fake flames still work. I am trying to see if the heater insert can be replaced, where and for how much, or...


There are a couple of reasons the heating unit part of the fireplace stop heating. A dust and lint build up in the heating coils can cause them to burn out. The heater overload circuitry has shut the heater down or has failed or the unit needs to reset. so lets go to the easiest thing for you to do, yourself.

RESETTING THE HEATER
Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the fireplace and wait 12 - 15 minutes before plugging it back in. Then turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. Turn ON each individual function of the fireplace, one at a time. If the unit was able to reset itself, each function should work normally. If it doesn't, then one of the issues I listed above is the problem.

If your fireplace is less than one year old, it should still be under warranty. So contact the manufacturer (you can find the contact info in your Owners Manual) about repair or replacement.

One personal aside: None of the electric fireplace/heaters on the market today, have a long trouble free life span. Usually, it's 9 months to a year, when consumers start having problems. I sold these type of appliances for a couple of years, as an adjunct to our gas fireplace and heater business. When they started to become a problem for our customers, we quickly realized, that no matter who the manufacturer is/was, they are not what they are touted to be and we discontinued selling them. It's been 4 years since we discontinued selling them and apparently, nothing has changed in their manufacture. As, I answer more than my share of questions about them, here on FixYa. As one person told me, "I wish I had bought a vent-free gas fireplace instead. It would have cost me more, but would have been more reliable and would still heat, even if the power was out."

I hope this helps you trouble shoot and solve the problem.

Happy Easter!

My customer just bought a CS 1205 from our True Value Store. The blower on the new CS 1205 does not work. It has been used three or four time. The flame comes on however. What do you suggest?


Before call Dimplex Technical Service (888-346-7539) have your customer turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF. Unplug the fireplace for 12 - 15 minutes. Once plugged back in, have them turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to On and then turn ON each function of the fireplace one at a time. If everything is performing as it should, the unit reset itself. However, if this becomes a recurring problem, they should contact Dimplex Technical Service.

Hope this helps you solve the problem for them.

Plug the new fan motor, nothing


Sounds as if the Fan Switch may also be faulty. Or the new fan motor is defective. Is the flame function on the electric fireplace working? If the flame function is working, than obviously the fault is either in the fan switch or the new fan motor.

If the motor has a regular receptacle type plug on the end of the cord, try plugging it directly to a wall outlet and see if it works. If you're able to do that, then the problem is in the fireplace's fan switch or in the wiring circuitry going to the fan motor. Perhaps, this is what was wrong all along and not the fan motor, itself.

If nothing is working, check the wall receptacle that the fireplace is plugged into, by plugging in an electric lamp. If the lamp won't turn on, then there's a circuit breaker tripped in your homes circuit breaker panel. Check the circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker and with nothing plugged into the offending receptacle, reset the breaker. Plug the fireplace back into the receptacle, turn it on and see if it trips the circuit breaker. If it does, there's an electrical short some where in the fireplace. Look for burned or frayed wiring, as well as bad connections.

Hope this helps solve your problem.

If you still have the owners manual it should tell you the location of any resets,fuseible links,or fuses.I think from a storm of that intensity that if you are lucky it just tripped the reset. I also would double check all breakers and fuses. Before I spent the money on a new one I would verify that you have power to fireplace.Any decent electrician should be able to check this for a minimum charge. I hope this is some help. Thanks
