I have an older Model 5068-700 round Patio Fireplace with

I have an older Coleman Model 5068-700 round Patio Fireplace with Wheels. I have been looking for part #5201, the firestarter. The sites I have visited say it is no longer being made. I'm wondering if this is a similar assembly to those used on Coleman Camp Stoves, etc.? My problem is that the knob that adjusts the flame and turns the gas flow from the attached canister on and off will no longer turn the gas OFF. Can you help me? Thank you...

Blower died on Charmglow electric fireplace. Installed replacement,

Blower died on Charmglow electric fireplace. Installed replacement, think I screwed up wiring. Lights come on and responds to rheostat low to high. Fan just runs flat out all the time and the heating element does not come on. I took a picture of how I did the right end wiring. The Left side was never touched. I can email pictures but need an address. Or phone number. Thanks, Steve. (###) ###-####
