FBK-100 Blower Kit Installation

In this video, Terry walks us through a basic installation of the FBK-100 blower kit. For demonstration purposes, we're using an insert free of any gas lines, controls or valves. It's important to note that your installation may vary based on the make and model of your fireplace. Various Lennox and Superior fireplaces require that the blower kit be installed through a panel below the gas logs and burner, rather than through the front lower louver opening as illustrated in this video. Others, such as some see-thru and peninsula models, require installation on the side of the fireplace rather than against the rear wall. If you have any questions during installation, we're always available at 262-989-4882.

The FBK-100 blower kit consists of a blower, mounting bracket, power cord, and noise reduction padding. The kit comes fully assembled and pre-wired, which make installation of the kit much easier. Since the FBK-100 does not include a rheostat variable speed control, the blower will operate at its highest RPM speed. However, a rheostat can always be added later. Lastly, the FBK-100 requires that you have a designated wall switch to control the blower's electrical outlet. If you do not have a designated switch for the blower, you'll need to use the FBK-250, which uses a thermostat to control the blower's on and off operation automatically.
