No Heat From Etc-Flame Fireplace
To access the fan and element just remove the screws from the outside of the unit and pull the entire fireplace from the wall. Then remove the screws from the panel to expose the fan and element. Don't need to remove the bottom panel.
I was able to clean the fan blades and element with compressed air. The problem was dust build-up on the electrical contacts to the element. You don't have to remove the fan, just the enclosing panel so you can clean it.
