Is this the blower I need for a DVD36FP31N?
Is this the blower I need for a DVD36FP31N?
The FBB4 is the blower designed for this model. Keep in mind that the DVD36FP31 has the FBB4 blower built-in out of the box. If you want it as an option, the DVD36FP30 needs the blower added on.

Blower is exactly as advertised and it works perfectly

I needed to replace the old fireplace blower because it was excessively noisy and I couldn't figure out any way to reduce the noise. The new blower works great and the installation was quite easy. Great product, great service.

Pros

Best price, fast delivery.

Cons

None

Works as it should

Magnets, it's held in with magnets and it works.

Pros

Easy install.

Cons

The temp switch could start at a lower temp. It takes a long time for the blower to start.

no issues

Comes with everything you need to just put it in place, plug it in and turn it on.

Pros

You don't need any tools. Everything is held in place by magnets or pressure fitting (temp sensor)

Cons

You can hear it if you turn it up enough, but that is to be expected.
