I have a regular built, no brand, wood-burning fireplace and would like to get a blower or fan to get more heat going into the room. What can I use?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 25, 2013
For a conventional masonry fireplace with no louvers, a grate heater would need to be used. An example is the Stoll 20 in. W x 17 in. D Grate Heater for Woodburning Applications
. The heater pulls heat via conduction from the fireplace grate and forces the heated air in the exchanger tube to the room. Different sizes of the system are available to best fit your fireplace.

I have a Temco TLC 36-3 zero-clearance fireplace in my family room. Is this the fan model that I need?
By eFireplaceStore on July 24, 2014
Answer:The original fan needed for this model was the Temco BL-1. When this part was discontinued, the manufacturer started to specify the FK12 as a substitution. The fan kit works just as well as the original, but installation is a bit tighter.

Will this work for the Majestic NV360 RN?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 7, 2013
Answer:This FK12 fan assembly is indeed the correct accessory item to be used with this fireplace.

We have a gas fireplace insert that was installed in our woodburning fireplace. It is the Majestic Duzy 4 and the fireplace is VENTED and the fireplace front is screened with folding glass doors. Can we use this blower for our gas logs?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 10, 2013
Answer:This FK12 blower is only listed for use with select Majestic and Monessen zero-clearance woodburning and gas fireplaces. The Duzy 4 is the model of the gas log set, not the firebox itself. Please reply with the model number of the firebox/insert and we will check available blower options, if applicable. We look forward to your response.

How do I know what model fireplace I have and if it will accept a fan kit?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on October 30, 2012
Answer:All manufactured fireplaces feature a data plate riveted to their body. This metal plate will list the manufacturer's name and the unit's model number.
These plates are most commonly found in the upper right hand corner of the fireplace opening. It is possible that the screen will need to be moved in order to locate it. With this identification information, we'll be able to help cross-reference a blower for you.

We purchased a home that has a wood-burning fireplace, and we'd like to make it more efficient by adding some type of mechanism to circulate the warm air.
The fireplace itself is simply the firebox and a faux surround; when we moved in the previous owners didn't even have doors covering it! Would this fan kit provide what we need, or do we need a fireplace insert?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 27, 2012
Answer:Typically, a blower is indeed a good way to circulate the warm air inside the fireplace chassis, and will assist in boosting the overall efficiency of the unit.
Does the face of the fireplace have louvers/slats above and below the opening? If so, this is an indicator that a blower can be used.
In order to select the correct blower assembly, you will need the manufacturer name and the unit's model number of the unit. Both can be found on the metal build tag which is usually on the interior of the fireplace, on the right side of the opening. Another possible location is the bottom of the fireplace, beneath the firebox floor.

What is the difference between your product and a universal blower for our Monessen CDV7 gas fireplace?
By eFireplaceStore on November 30, 2014
Answer:Most universal blowers use a rotary design just like this FK12, however the sizing of the blower may not be exactly what is needed for your application. Most blowers fit into a compartment that is very tight on space. As such, all universal blowers may not work.

Can this item be adapted to fit an existing firebox?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 5, 2012
Answer:While the blower may physically be able to mount into your existing fireplace, I highly recommend checking the manufacturer name and model number of the unit to determine if an exact blower is available.
Please advise if you have this information available and I will be happy to look into this further for you.

I have a Temco DV 1200N fireplace and would like to add a blower to it. Is there an available kit?

Is the Majestic FK12 Firepalce fan kit the correct one for my Majestic fireplace model 39BDVR RN?
By eFireplaceStore on January 19, 2015
Answer:The FK12 is indeed a compatible fan kit for your particular model of fireplace.
By Tyler from Spokane, WA on January 13, 2013
I'm defacing my brick fireplace, and I want to add a fireplace fan blower kit. I'd like the fan recessed in the brick. Which of your products would you suggest for this?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 14, 2013
For this type of application, I would recommend a high quality aftermarket fan, as they tend to be more reliable than the standard units that are offered by most manufacturers. One good model is the Skytech FK-165 Fireplace Blower Fan Kit
. The ball bearing design and high CFM output make this universal fan a solid choice.
By Todd from Lake Oswego, OR on November 3, 2013
I just purchased a home that has an older MarGas (Marco Mfg) CCT 36 Natural Gas Fireplace. There's an outlet underneath for a blower, but no blower/fan. Do you know if this Fan Kit would work in my fireplace?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 4, 2013
Answer:It is possible the FK12 will fit into your Marco fireplace, but I cannot say for certain. Each manufacturer produces their own specific fans for each model. Marco has since declared bankruptcy and was dissolved. As such, the original fans are no longer available and retrofit of another model is the only option.

I have a Majestic fireplace and want to blow the heat out into the room. What do I need? A blower kit or fan kit - what is the difference?
By Magan B. on November 28, 2012
Answer:Blowers and fans are the same thing. Each Majestic fireplace will have specific models of fans / blowers with which it is compatible.
By Troy from Louisville KY on January 23, 2013
I have a majestic Vermont Casting Gas fireplace, Model number NV360RN. I would like to install a fan and was wondering if the FK12 is the correct one to purchase? There is already a separate switch/wires installed with wire nuts on them.
By Tommy H. on January 23, 2013
Answer:According to the manufacturer, the FK12 is indeed the correct fan kit for the NV360 line.
By Steve from Oak Park, IL on November 17, 2014
I want to install a direct vent fireplace. Can you give me an idea of how much the efficiency increases in a direct vent fireplace if I added a blower fan?
By eFireplaceStore on November 18, 2014
Answer:The A.F.U.E. (burn chamber) efficiency will not change if a fan is installed, however thermal efficiency typically increases by 10 to 20 percent. This can allow some units to heat a greater area and encourages natural circulation in the room.
By Joe from PA on February 19, 2015
This isn't a very powerful blower. I have a Monessen BC36 wood burning fireplace which I purchased this fan for. Is this unit supposed to be a strong blower?
By eFireplaceStore on February 19, 2015
Answer:As is the case with other brands of fireplace equipped with fans, open faced units will have a fairly low output blower. The reason for this is because the force of moving air leaving the face of the fireplace can easily overpower the force of natural draft, causing smoke to spill into the room. However, using the blower will definitely induce a slow recirculating effect, which will more effectively heat the room.
By Brenda Ferraro from New Orleans on February 4, 2013
We have a wood burning fireplace that had two installed fans to blow the air out into the room. They were built in when the fireplace was originally built 30+ years ago. They have since flooded and we would like to replace them. Do you have such a product?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 4, 2013
Answer:The only blowers we sell are model-specific, so unfortunately we cannot provide replacements for yours. We apologize for this inconvenience.
By Lloyd from York, SC on February 20, 2015
I have a new Vermont Castings CDVSC7 direct vent gas fireplace and I am considering adding a blower. It does not look like a complicated process and I am considering installing it myself. Do you sell a blower kit that will fit my fireplace? I would like one that has thermostat control.
By Kevin E. on February 20, 2015
From the part number that you've provided, it appears you have the Signature Command version of the CDV fireplace. As such, there is only one blower for you. It is the BLOTSC
. Please note that this blower requires the addition of the SCSACM control module
and the TSFSC remote
for proper operation.
By Nate from Etters, PA on February 13, 2015
Will this fit on my Majestic model 36BDVRRP fireplace?
By eFireplaceStore on February 13, 2015

Will this fan work for my Majestic fireplace, model #DVR39RN?
By Brennan W. on October 12, 2016
Answer:Unfortunately, the blower for your unit is no longer available.
By Randy from Albany, OR on December 31, 2014
Will this blower fit on my Majestic Direct Vent Fireplace? The model number of my unit is 36LDVRRN.
By eFireplaceStore on December 31, 2014
Answer:This blower will indeed fit your model of fireplace. The unit was originally configured to use the FK24 and FK12 fan kits. The FK24 has since been discontinued, with the FK12 as the only option.
By Larry from San Francisco, CA on January 1, 2015
Answer:FK12 Fireplace Fan Kit.
Yes I found the fan kit very helpful and works well on my Majestic DVBR42.
The real story: Check your home owners manual for accessories. If you don't have a manual you can download one, or a similar one. In the manual look for the optional accessories for that model. See if FK12 is there. Chances are it will be. From my research this kit works on just about all 36 to 52 inch models.
Installation Fact: The fan kit does NOT have control switches. You need a power supply in your Majestic to run it. It has to be installed in the back (behind the burner) sometimes which can be a problem for smaller models. (The owner's manual should show how and where.)
