    I have a classic Gold Marc fireplace insert. Can anyone tell me where to get a replacement blower for it? It had a Fasco on it but no tag with part numbers and I cannot seem to locate an exact replica anywhere, the mounting holes are not lining up with my stove. Do you know if they come without holes pre-drilled in the mounts? This insert was in my house when I bought it, and it works great, but the blower quit.

    Are you sure the blower is finished? I found that it was relatively easy to completely disassemble the entire blower and motor (even removing the coils), then clean out thirty years of crud, re-lubricate and reassemble. Fun project for a rainy day.
    When I looked at Fasco catalogs thinking I would need a new motor, I couldn't find an exact match, but it looked like you could drill holes on several models that would fit.

    Cleaned it all out and tried again, but it started smoking, so.....calling it dead. I was going to try taking it to a local small engine repair shop & seeing if it could be rebuilt, as I am not the least bit mechanical.

    I'm replacing my Gold Marc insert in a few weeks, I'll keep the blower so if you have no luck before the season is over, you can have it for 1/4 of whatever a new blower costs. It probably won't be worthwhile to pay shipping but I'm often around New Paltz, NY during the spring and summer if that's close to you.

    Fasco 50755-D500 80 to 125 CFM Centrifugal Blower Assembly - 50755-D500 that is the info you need for the replacement for the blower in your gold marc fireplace insert
    I live in woodbourne ny and my insert has about a 5 hr burn time what is yours
