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!
