2019 Jayco Seneca 37HJ Electric Fireplace

Our Twin Star Spectrafire fireplace last evening suddenly showed an “E3” fault code. I immediately shut it off. This morning I called Spectrafire (I received NO information with the mh.) They told me that the code meant overheating & that the intake (on the backside of the unit) might be restricted. I removed the unit. Didn’t find much on the inlet but did vacuum it off. Fingers crossed but so far this evening it’s working. If I needed parts they told me that model (last made in 2014) was discontinued & would have to be replaced. (Ap. $400-$700.)

Thanks for your input. Is yours a Twin Star Spectrafire Model No. 25EF031GRP? If so I’ll order one. Thanks again.

There are a bunch of different "electric fireplaces" that have gone into the Jayco lineup over the various model-years... all under a different name, but the basic parts are all the same. Ours even have the same "fake logs" according to the pictures I could look up.

I lifted the front glass straight up and tipped out the bottom so that it would come out, then removed the entire fireplace unit... unplugged it from the outlet and took it into the garage workbench to take apart. I operated it on the workbench and it was an issue with the fan on the heater assembly (the entire heater is one assembly - see the pics I post below) and decided to search the part number on the internet... I replaced the ENTIRE heater module... and it has served us well since 2019 These are of the unit on the workbench More pics coming

I would pull the fireplace out first... and take it apart first... What have you to lose if you can't find replacement parts? That is what I did...

2019 Jayco Seneca 37HJ Electric Fireplace

Thanks again for your very detailed input. When the Error E3 appeared the temperature was set at 72 degree’s. (Heated room to 75-76.) Due to the comment of “overheating” DW suggested I “turn the temperature down”. I turn the temperature down to 68 degree’s. (Heat’s room to 71-72.) Has operated flawlessly since. I’ll continue to monitor.
