Find an access door on the back or side or both.
check lightbulbs.
Do not replace with anything but exact bulb.
try taking the bulb to Lowes...I've gotten luck there before with odd bulbs...they have a special drawer for them.
Good luck,
Vinnie

    Hi there, I'm not sure if your fireplace is the same as mine or not (I bought mine at Lowe's) but there is no access door per se, you just remove the back of the heating unit (be sure to unplug it, of course) and you can get to the bulbs that way. At least on mine I could and mine seems pretty standard. Thanks for the answer Vinnie, I hope to fix mine this way!

What kind of a light bulb is needed for the febo flame electric fireplace?


Flickering flame fires generally use a fairly ordinary tungsten filament incandescent bulb, except the Fireglow bulbs are coated with an amber coloured lacquer. The heat from the bulb causes an upward current of air causing a small "windmill" to turn and cause the light to flicker.
That is the traditional method but ultra modern fires might use a higher-tech solution.

Flame Electric Fireplace Electric Fireplace Heat


Fireplaces have become the heart of the home, a warm place to gather with friends and family. Fireplaces turn any blank wall into a gorgeous focal point. A fireplace fits any decor and is a stylish addition to any room. Electric fireplace logs have improved greatly over the past few years and now days can look so good that they can fool people into believing that they are looking at a real fire, something which is especially true when you have crackling effect of fireplace logs, which aim to imitate the sound of a real fire.

Even though electric fireplaces do not generate flame, most provide the effect of a fire, which ranges from an orange light shined through plastic logs to simulate the appearance of coals burning, to an elaborate flame projection on the doors of some of the free-standing models. If you need a fireplace to heat your home you may want to consider a gas fireplace for better efficiency. If you need a fireplace for more decorative purposes a cheap electric burning unit might better suit your needs. The electric fireplace has experienced a quantum leap from those electric logs with reflective tin foil drums that adorned the hearth while the lava lamps were in vogue. An electric fireplace can add a great deal to a home, in terms of both form and function, and are also very effective at heating up a room.

Electric fireplace heaters simulate the look of a fireplace, but don't actually burn gas or wood like a traditional fireplace. Electric fireplace inserts simply fit into existing fireplaces and provide an artificial fire that creates the warmth and ambiance you want with just a flip of a switch. A modern electric fireplace insert does not require any type of venting system and many units are portable.

Even though these fireplaces do not generate flame, most provide the effect of a fire, which ranges from an orange light shined through plastic logs to simulate the appearance of coals burning, to an elaborate flame projection on the doors of some of the free-standing models. They plug into the wall, and can run on a "flame only" setting, or can be used as a heater, typically with 4,500–5,000 BTU (4,700–5,300 kJ), that can heat a 400 sq ft (37 m2) room. Since there is no real flame or combustion taking place, electric fireplace heaters release no toxic fumes or dangerous gases.

Everyone knows that a fireplace is about more than heat, especially when you're looking at a real fire, when one of the most entrancing things about it is the fact that you can see real flames. Most electric logs use a standard 110 volt power source, and come with various levels of flame of brightness. By choosing a really good set of electric fireplace logs, and particularly those which have a crackling effect and real flames, you can be assured that your fireplace will not be simply a unit in the room to make the room feel warm, but will be something that you enjoy looking at as well.

Electric fireside inserts are also a good option if there are issues with your hearth which make them a hazard with wood burning fires. Electric fireplace log inserts typically include an electric fireplace log set and an ember bed, and inserts are incredibly easy to install. Electric fireplace inserts are safe and clean. Most importantly whether you choose a modern electric fireplace or any other type make sure it will be most cost effective and suitable for its purpose in your home.

I can't to find the area to replace the bulb. Everything works except for the light To eacy to leave on without the light. Where is the bulb located and what should I purchase to replace it. model #...


On the back of the heater stove, you will see a rectangular panel in the center, near the bottom of the stove. If you remove that (by removing the screws that hold it in place), you will have access to the small base, 60 watt. chandelier bulbs that you will need to replace. Be sure to turn the stove OFF and unplug it, before attempting to replace the bulbs.

Hope this helped you and Happy Easter!
