    FPX 44 Blower sound and location

    We made a pretty big mistake when installing our FPX44 and located the blower in the room that the fireplace is. We knew we had to have it draw air from the inside of the house since we live in a cold environment (Colorado). We're considering doing some "re-construction" and moving the blower...

    Has anyone installed a blower fan for a Martin SA36 fireplace?

    Blower not fully working Englander 25-PDVC/55-SHP10

    Hi, my Englander pellet stove is less than a year old and the blower barely works. The speed doesnt seem to spit heat out any faster than a level 3. If you turn it up to lets say 9 and 9, the blower still only pushes hot air out like a level 3. This is ridiculous. I also always get a failure...
