Can an Electric Fireplace Insert be Repaired?

Of course, electric fireplaces, stoves and inserts can be repaired! If repairs are ever needed, some can be handled by the homeowner and some should be performed by a qualified service tech.

If the remote control is not working, it’s likely time to replace the batteries! Probably the most common service call is related to dim flames or none at all, or the ember bed not glowing. The LED lights are likely burned out and need to be replaced.

If there’s power to the unit and the appliance will not come on with the switch or remote, probably one of two scenarios : The appliance has overheated and the temperature sensor has caused the thermal switch to disconnect, or the circuit board is shot and needs to be replaced.

If the flame is sputtering or there’s no heat, wiring may be loose or the flame motor or heater and fan assembly may need attention.

So, yes electrics can be repaired. A comprehensive list of replacement parts is in the owner’s manual. But honestly, most WE LOVE FIRE® dealers don’t have many service requests for repairs to electric fireplaces. Plus, buy with confidence, because there’s a full two year warranty with the electric fireplaces we sell!

  1. I have an electric fireplace. Model ADL-2000M-X I can’t find the part I need. It’s the piece that has the buttons for turning on - low-high.

      Hello Diane, thanks for reaching out. I am not familiar with that model and brand. The best would be to go back where it was purchased to see if they sell replacement parts. All the best!
      • I have an old electric fireplace that suddenly stopped working. It is Model# F3408C Serial #SDF3408C000602 I was told it could be the board. Do you know if that part is available to replace on this model or should I get a new insert?

          Colleen: It's tough to troubleshoot something like this through an email. You did not mention the brand of fireplace you have and I did not recognize the model number. I think my best suggestion would be to call your nearest dealer and describe the problem in detail to them. My hunch is a service call would be in order to determine exactly what the problem is before making a decision on replacing the fireplace. If a replacement is in the cards, they would be able to find something that would be workable in the same space as the old unit. Or, perhaps an opportunity to relocate the fireplace to another location in the room? Good luck & hope this helps. Joe
  2. Do you know of any local repair shops (Torrance, CA) that could check my Zokop SF122--26A electric fireplace insert ? All I get is a EE flashing when I switch it on. I'd hate to throw away a barely used two year old fireplace.
