    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Dan from KY on October 21, 2015
    Are there other blowers or better, thermostatic blowers that can be used this Empire Breckenridge VFD42FBOL Deluxe vent-free louvered gas firebox? If so, what they?
    By Chris C. on October 21, 2015

    Answer:
    Empire offers the FBB5 which is a single speed automatic blower featuring a thermostatic switch which is to be installed on the firebox. This allows the blower to automatically start once the firebox reaches a preset temperature. You may also add the Variable Speed Control to the blower allowing the user to vary the speed of the blower while in operation.

    Answer:
    The Empire FBB-5 Automatic Single-Speed Blower is the listed blower for this model.

    Ventless Gas Logs

    By Ken Hatfield from Palm Springs, CA on November 7, 2012
    Does this come with an electric ignitor? It looks like there is a flip-down lid for venting on the top section. What is the flap?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 7, 2012

    Answer:
    This product is actually a vent-free firebox only and must be equipped with a log set of your choosing. There are several manufacturers of log sets that offer an electronic ignitor rather than a standing pilot.

    This unit is completely sealed and cannot be vented. It does have several metal standoffs that are built onto the top of the unit, which maintain proper clearance to combustibles. The unit will also come with a deflector hood which will push heat away from a wooden mantel.

    By clay Claymore from Gettysburg, SD on December 11, 2016
    I have a 42" FMI that is quite troublesome. Can I upgrade with this model and retrofit my existing box?
    By Will M. on December 12, 2016

    Answer:
    Please provide the full model number for your fireplace for clarity. Please note that the product in question is simply a ventless gas firebox, tested and listed for use with separately purchased ventless gas log sets.

    By Joe from New Orleans, LA on January 14, 2013
    Can you operate this firebox without the liner? I am putting propane ventless logs in it.
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 14, 2013

    Answer:
    Yes, this firebox can indeed be used without any ceramic liner on the inside; it is an optional accessory.

    I need lighting instructions for a Buck Stove fireplace via the remote; Model FDC-503.
    By Brennan W. on January 9, 2017

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, I do not have access to Buck Stoves.

    By Kevin Banks from Eugene, Oregon on July 9, 2012
    What is the inside of the fire box made of and does it have a brick look to it? Is there a blower available for this item?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on July 9, 2012

    Answer:
    The inside of the firebox is made of sheet metal and it does not come with brick panels, but you have a choice of three different optional brick liner kits that can be found in the "Accessories" tab on the item page. This tab is located to the right of the "Item Description" tab directly below the picture.

    Yes, there is a blower available for this model, the Empire FBB5 blower, which is also available in the "Accessories" tab.

    By Bob K from cleveland ohio on December 1, 2011
    Does this come with a liner and if so does it look like the picture? Also does it come with a burner?
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on December 1, 2011

    Answer:
    This firebox does not include the brick liner or the burner assembly. It is simply a firebox. You may find its available brick liners by following the Accessories tab.
