Turn off the fireplace flames

Quick question I have the standard fireplace that we all probably have. Model f f p 27210 7-H. Anyways I follow the instructions but I can't seem to figure out how to have only the heater working without the fireplace lighted flames. I can dim the flame but is there a way of shutting the lights actually off?

On mine there is a place to stop effects ( flames) . That is the term that it uses.

Water usually works outside in the pit, but I don't think it would work on an electric fireplace.

But seriously, Forest River uses several different brands and some fireplaces you cannot turn off the flame effects without turning off the complete heater. If you have the access panel at the bottom so you can change the bulbs when they burn out, then unscrew the bulbs or put a switch in line with the lights.

I like that idea!

On mine, you can dim the lighted flames, but not turn off. Maybe that is to remind you the heat is on.

I can only dim the flames. Like Scheinin says, I believe it is so you can't forget it is on.

Unscrew the light bulb. I have a fireplace like that at home, and when the bulb burns out, the heater still works.

Mine will not work without the lights. If they burn out, my fireplace will not work

In no way can you have the lights in series with the heating element. The lights will not withstand the amount of wattage that the element uses. But then again the mfgr may have a relay in line with the lights that opens when there isn't any current flowing through the light circuit.
