I purchased a blower package for our Majestic gas fireplace and this was the blower speed control that came with it. The first one lasted about three months of intermittent use, and then it would only run at top speed. The package was under warranty and the supplier sent a replacement unit. I installed that one in February of this year, shortly before we stopped using the fireplace. Today, we turned on the fireplace for the first time for the oncoming cold season and the control was dead. The blower would not run at all. I "hot-wired" the control, thereby eliminating it from the circuit, and the blower runs fine, albeit only at top speed, which is pretty noisy. I just emailed the supplier to find out if there is a better quality replacement, even if I have to pay for it this time.

From my experience, I'd call it just more disappointing Chinese-made junk. I would happily pay the price for a good old American-made, last-century-technology, non-solid-state speed control (the kind that NEVER broke), but unfortunately, that seems not to be an option anymore.

TEN MONTH UPDATE: The supplier did respond and sent me a replacement control under warranty. Well, 10 months later, that one stopped working, too. So I contacted the supplier again and this time somebody there suggested I adjust the teensy screw tucked into a teensy hole on the side of the control. I did, and the control started working again.

So I upgraded from one star to three, since it does now work and more than likely, had somebody told me about the teensy screw on the first control failure, it may have fixed that one, too. I feel that if the control needs periodic adjustments to keep working, that should have been mentioned in the instructions. It works, but it just feels like an item of shabby quality.

I only gave it four stars because I do not know how long it will last. This control is used to control the fan on our fireplace insert and we have replaced one a year since we have had the stove. Ordering was easy, shipping was prompt. So far, very satisfied.

It works. That's about it. However, KB Electronics was very helpful and fast to respond and ship. A good place to do business!

The switch for the variable intensity lights in my range hood "popped" and quit working. The replacement switch has two lugs on the shaft that sit above the body of the switch. On the OEM switch, these lugs are flush with the body of the switch. This difference keeps the switch from mounting flush in the range hood. Also, the OEM switch had a threaded shaft with a thin threaded retaining ring. The replacement switch has an un-threaded shaft and a much thicker ring that I believe is supposed to cut its own threads into the shaft when being installed. This thicker ring is now exposed to view and looks like a jury-rigging next to the adjacent (and similar) switch for the vent fan. The seller told me if I wanted a true replacement, I would have to order 152 of these switches. I am very unhappy and don't know what to do next.

This was an exact replacement for another identical KBMC-13BV speed control that became defective. It dropped right into place where the old one was.
