Sometimes in life the people I was with and I just get pretty fortunate with things.
This was the case when my electric fireplace broke a few months back.
I was sure that the electric fireplace had seen its afternoon and that I was going to have to invest in a brand new electric fireplace, then however before I threw in the towel and did that I wanted to see if I could concernshoot the problems with my electric fireplace. The problem was it was not heating up. I checked the heating element inside of it and it appeared to be ok. There was nothing wrong there so I assumed that the electric fireplace had failed somewhere inside with the technical electronics of it all. But that was not the case either. It turned out that it was just as simple as a fuse being blown! I had no idea that electric fireplaces even had fuses. I found this out when I was speaking with a neighbor who also has an electric fireplace and while I was telling him my problem he asked if I checked the fuse! I was really confused when he said that. He then explained to me where it was. And lo and behold that was the issue! I was able to choice up a new fuse recognizably for the electric fireplace for under 10 bucks and have my electric fireplace fully working once again by the end of the afternoon for almost no cost at all! That was good that I did not have to invest a thoUSAnd bucks in a new electric fireplace!
