Electric Fireplace Inserts with Incandescent Light Bulbs

Maintenance Instructions

The light bulbs inside the cabinet glow brightly to create a flame effect.  Those with incandescent bulbs will need to be replaced when you notice a dark section of the 'flame' or when clarity and detail of the coals effect disappears.  This might be once or twice a year, or every two or three years, depending upon the amount the flame effect is used.  Most incandescent bulbs last at least one season of normal, occasional use.

1 -  Unplug the unit from the electricity before servicing, and allow the fireplace to cool at least five minutes in the 'off' position before touching the unit.

2 - On most fireplaces there are screws or fasteners on either side of the front frame, or the louver panel.  With these fasteners/screws removed you can lift up/off the front panel for access to the light bulbs.  Examine the bulbs to determine which one need replacing, then remove the burned out bulb, and replace it with a new bulb.  Hold the socket while unscrewing and/or screwing the new bulb into place. 

Replace bulb with bulbs of the same wattage and style, normally, 40 Watt clear, chandelier or candelabra with an E-12 (small) base bulbs.

TIP:  You might replace all bulbs at once, since they should have approximately the same life.  Replacing them all will prevent repeated servicing and keep you ready for use.
