Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My fireplace was purched in 2005. Since then I have replaced the Vanguard Thermalheostat blower twice the last time was last fall. It is now going bad. Is there a problem with these blowers? My next one will be the 4th blower. Is there an alternative fix to this problem. My first blower was installed in the fall of 2006. They seem to last only one season and are quite expensive. Thanks for any help you can offer.

I would try the makers of the fire place perhaps google them see if they have a tech line they should be able to tell you if this a common fault or offer help with this type of blower .

I HAVE A HC3820 AND AM CURRENTLY LOOKING TO OBTAIN A BLOWER. THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE ONE NEEDED FOR THIS MODEL IS FAK-1500 AND I CANT FIND IT ANYWHERE! PLEASE HELP!


Honestly, go to www.grainger.com. Since Superior/Lennox Hearth/and FMi are all merging into one company you are going to have a very hard time finding replacement parts for older Superior units. Plus the new company, Astria Fireplaces, is going to be using FMI for their woodburning products so no more Superior products available.
If you bring the old blower to your local Grainger they can match it up. I hope this helps.

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.

I have a heatsurge electric fireplace and the blower comes on but i have no heat. i replaced the plug but it wont produce heat


Not sure what cord you replaced, but the problem is generally caused by the heater's circuit failing or the heating element itself has failed. This is a common problem with 98% of all electric fireplaces. If I recall correctly, the Heat Surge has a one year warranty. If yours falls into that one year time line and you still have your proof of purchase, file a warranty claim with the manufacturer. If it's not still in the warranty period, you can locate the necessary parts in your area, by clicking on the link below.

Where does the FBK200 blower go in the Marco fireplace


As you are aware the Marco Fireplace Co is no longer in business. However, the blower model # you listed is a DESA/Vanguard part number. In any event, it may work.

The blower goes in the lower compartment (probably louvered) under the firebox. It is then attached to the rear wall of the compartment, with the blower output facing up the back wall of the firebox. There should be an arrow on the blower housing indicating which way it should point.

If your firebox is already wired for a blower and has a duplex receptacle in place (for the blower to plug into), you're in business. If it doesn't I highly recommend that you install one and not try to hard wire the blower.

The blower, if purchased new, should come will all the hardware to mount it. If it didn't you can use sheet metal screws to attach it to the rear wall of the firebox. However, make sure that you put a rubber flat washer behind the mounting frame and then screw thru it into the firebox wall. This will help eliminate vibration and noise.

Hope this helps to get you started.

I have not heard of a problem with the blowers or a recall. But depending on what unit you have, and who you purchase the blower from, perhaps you could get a warranty so that you aren't spending out of pocket everytime. The original Vangaurd manufacturer, Desa International, went out of business in 2008, but there is a new company that took over some lines of the units and are still making the blowers for most of them. They hold a warranty on the blowers if you purchase is from a Distributor. I hope this helps a little!
