Electric Fire , Repair Viable? (info only no job enquiry)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

as above I have a really nice e/f i bought on FB, but recently, it has been making a grating noise, I believe if it is the motor, and is getting progressively worse, though it could just be heavy dust for all i know, its ex B and Q, and afiak, i am not sure you can get the part(think its dimplex.)  I think i may have contributed to its demise as i didn't put a chimney balloon behind it, wary of another, as it seems its a common fault even with rel new ones.

Please don't risk people and property- remove plug and dispose.

Is it a flame- effect fire? I've got one and the hot air blower (a cylindrical fan) was noisy and revolved intermittently. I dismantled the fire and found that the blades were catching the housing when it got warm, but even after correcting this it was never reliable so I abandoned further attempts. Not safe if the fan stops working.
