Flame Motor Noisy
Arthur from Imperial, MO – Verified Buyer
I removed the back from the fireplace itself to see if I could find what was quite noisy. It turned out to be the small round motor with the flame rod connected to it. As soon as I unscrewed the motor from the frame the noise stopped. I put a small rubber washer between the mounting plate & the motor attachment frame where you screw the screws back in.& then put my screws back on. I had to get 2 longer screws for this because the original screws were now too short with the rubber washers. No more noise now. By the way, you can get the small rubber washers from any auto parts store. Easy fix in about 15 minutes.

I wanted an electric fireplace for a while and researched different products. I chose the Franklin Electric Fireplace because of it's size and realistic look. I was very pleased with the product. It looks wonderful in my family room! The fire is very realistic and it heats up my entire room! The only negative comment would be it took longer to put together than I thought and 2 of the wood pieces were a little warped. We made it work because we did not want to go through returning and putting it together again. It's a small issue compared to the beauty of this product. Great value, fire is very realistic, beautiful product Took longer to assemble. A few wood pieces warped.
Franklin Electric Fireplace
Terrence from Scottsdale, AZ – Verified Buyer
The quality of this product was amazing for the price. It went together easily and has the most realistic fire. I've ever seen in an electric fireplace.
Its a beauty
s. pointer from Pacifica, CA
I love this fireplace. It is petite so it fits in small rooms. Bookcases won't hold much but the style, color and design are beautiful. The fireplace actually throws out some heat. This is the very first piece of furniture I have found in this color. All other fireplace/bookcase/TV stands are huge, or very cheaply made and are black or shades of brown. I have a large TV that fits nicely on top. The only draw back is that there really isn't any room to put a DVR or DVD player, cable box, etc.

Shipped quickly. It was exactly what we expected and more.
Cute Product but VERY difficult to put together!
Lauren from Commack, NY – Verified Buyer
I bought this fireplace on sale and while it looks very cute as a complete set, it was quite difficult to put together. Certain screw holes were missing making it hard to follow directions and coordinate pieces. Took probably twice as long to assemble due to the miscommunication in the directions and lack of proper screw holes. Overall, I am satisfied with the finished product - it adds a nice classy touch to the room! But not worth it if the fireplace is not on sale.
Very nice construction
Patrick from Devils Lake, ND – Verified Buyer
Was very impressed with this product. I have to admit for the price I was expecting something a little less. Very sturdy construction and all pieces fit together very nicely. I did decide to screw the book cases to the mantel unit to make it a one piece unit. Fireplace is very realistic and has settings for almost any mood. I do wish the heater put out a little more heat but it does take the chill off nicely Sturdy piece of furniture, fits together very well, easy assembly - less than two hours Wish it had a little more heat, book cases are seperate units
Just as beautiful as the picture
DD from MD
I put this together with a friend and it looks exactly as expected. The left book shelf does not fit exactly against the fireplace but it is difficult to notice. The fireplace is a little louder when it is working to put out more heat, but I haven't tried the remedy of tightening screws as mentioned in a previous post. Overall, we would prefer a gas or wood burning fireplace, but because that is not possible we are thrilled with this one. Pros: Nice to look at AND warms the room! Cons: Remote control didn't work - another one is on the way.
