    I have an EF39HD electric fireplace which does not come on; the power is on and I have changed the remote batteries. The dealer tells me to the change the batteries in the receiver. Where is the receiver located?
    1 Answer
    From my understanding, the only batteries used for this system will be in the remote control. I'd highly recommend asking your dealer for clarity. If you do not receive a satisfactory response, I'd recommend contacting Napoleon directly.

    I need to clean my glass front on a gas fireplace. What is your recommendation?
    1 Answer
    For removing light to moderate soot deposits, I recommend using a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar to soak a cotton cloth. After wiping the glass down inside and out, a second dry cloth should be used. For heavy deposits, you may need to purchase a specialty cleaner such as the Stove Bright Gas Appliance Glass Cleaner - 43600.

    I have a Temco TFC 42-4 fireplace that needs a new set of refractory panels. The back panel is shot, the bottom panel is cracked, but the sides are fine. Do you have the replacement parts?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, we do not have the manufacturer-specific panel that you are looking for, but we do offer some universal refractory panels that will work for your woodburning fireplace. Please see the following links: One 24"h x 28"w Panel Two 24" h x 40"w Panels These panels are about 3/4" thick and can be cut down to the size you need with a masonry blade or tile saw. They are suitable for use as side, rear and floor panels inside any manufactured woodburning fireplace.

    What can I use to paint or restore the firebrick panels inside my old Majestic MBU gas firebox?
    1 Answer
    While it is not recommended to paint firebrick panels, you may certainly use a stone/cement cleaner to restore them. An item such as this will do the job of removing built-up soot stains and burn residue.
