Top Customer Reviews
-bend the metal tab on the back of the unit in about an inch. This will allow you to hear the "crackle" even with glass doors closed.
-add a remote control outlet for it to be plugged into. The switch is near the back of the unit and a remote will allow you to turn it on in off without ever touching it. My outlet and remote cost ten bucks at Home Depot.
-use a grate to support the unit. It adds to the authenticity.
-I put two bags of lava rock in the bottom of my fireplace. This made it look more like a gas insert.
I added to small logs to the "pile". One to the front and one to the top. This tones down the brightness of the light show.
All in all we couldn't be happier. We've shown this to all of our friends and not one could believe it wasn't real fire.
Now, it's not without its faults. The first one I received started humming loudly shortly after I first used it. It rapidly got to the point of annoyance where it was simply unusable, so I sent it back for an exchange. The second one seems to be doing better, but I have noticed a bit of a motor hum sometimes. For this one I dampened the vibration/hum a little by putting a piece of foam pipe insulation under each "foot" where it touched the metal grate of my fireplace. I think this helps with the vibration by reducing it going into the medal grate, which is what I believe amplifies that hum.
I ended up installing mine on a wireless remote that also controls all my lights, so I'm able to sit in a chair, push a button, and start my fire. Not clap-on/clap-off, but pretty close! It's pretty nice for what it is. I don't see how any of these fake, non-heating fireplaces could be any better, even though some are hundreds of dollars more expensive. This one does the trick and for a relatively cheap price.
Edit: One more thing -- don't waste your money on the high priced decorative grate that is specifically designed for this product. Just about any fireplace grate will do. I picked up one from a local hardware store for $12 that works perfectly.
The price was almost too good to be true, and then the Amazon reviews indicated this is indeed a super value for a most reasonable cost, so I ordered it.
Shipping was instant, and it arrived well ahead of anticipated date. Surprisingly, the manufacturer's box is as solid as the fire unit itself. No damage, and beautifully constructed.
Right out of the box, couldn't be easier. And yes, the turn-on switch is in an awkward location, right behind the log set itself. No problem, however, other reviews had already mentioned this. I just used a timer unit at the plug-in location, which has its own on/off switch, as well as being able to set the time to operate automatically.
VERY pleased with this unit. Simple in design, well constructed, and quite authentic looking in the fireplace.
Cannot ask for much more than that ~~!!
