    Classic Bay 1200i - Room Blower

    Pull the snapdisk & hold a flame to the contact surface. If you hear a small "tink" or a metallic click, the disk is working. If you don't then the new one is inoperable. If it DOES then it could be an airflow issue. The disk needs to be in solid contact with a hot surface in order to work...

    I would STILL replace the switch. They wear out over time & can function erratically until they fail completely... What's it gonna cost? Couple of bucks & a few minutes of your time.

    Harman PC45 short lived igniter won't thread in.

It is accessible by dropping the small cover plate held by (2) thumbscrews. There are (2) 5/16" head zip screws holding the bracket in place. The igniter doesn't...

    VC Intrepid II 1308 Tie Rod Issue

    Carefully drill it out & then re-tap the threads. You can get replacement tie rods (1/4-20 threaded rod) at most hardware stores. You really should replace all 4 after a rebuild.

    New Jotul gf500 dv matte paint coming off and still smells after 30 hours

    The Jotul enamel stoves are gorgeous, but chips happen, & some colors touch-up better than others. Any paint out gassing during curing in the firebox is a non-issue...That'll go up the flue. You MAY get some burn-off on the heat shields..

    Natural Gas Fireplace Shuts Off

    Sounds like there is an obstruction in your venting. Could be a bird's nest or a bee hive, or the venting has come apart at one or more joints & the exhaust gas is mixing with the combustion air...

    Electrical / Fan Issue on Heat N Glo SL-750TR-D

    Yes. By HOT I meant is there power in the box... If you CAREFULLY remove the wires from the snap disk & run a jumper wire between the connectors, does the blower come on?

    Electrical / Fan Issue on Heat N Glo SL-750TR-D

    1. Is the thermodisk in SOLID contact with the fireplace body? A small gap will cause it to work erratically. 2. If your burner shuts down, & the pilot stays lit, the thermoPILE may be bad. The ThermoCOUPLE controls the pilot side. 3. Have you taken any readings on the thermoPILE with a multimeter?

    Am I screwed?

    I'd say it's not gonna be cheap. That particular model does not allow for a solid-fuel (woodburning) insert to be installed in the fire box. You WILL hafta tear it out, along with whatever venting is in there as well. Depending on the type of cultured stone & how it's installed, you are probably...
