Help and Service For Your Touchstone Electric Fireplace

Thank you for purchasing a Touchstone Electric Fireplace. Our customer service team is here to help you install and operate your electric fireplace. You'll find answers to frequently asked questions below.

  • How far do I need to mount my fireplace below my flat screen TV?
    • Touchstone and most flat screen TV manufacturers recommend you place your TV 24 inches above any of our wall hanging electric fireplaces (Onyx/Ivory Wall Mount Series) where the heat blows out of the top of the unit. We recommend 8 inches of clearance for our in-wall recessed models (Sideline Series, Sideline Elite Series, ValueLine Series, AudioFlare Series, and Chesmont Mantel Fireplaces) where heat blows out the front of the unit.
  • Is it safe to use a power strip with a Touchstone Fireplace?
    • Touchstone Fireplaces must be plugged directly into a wall outlet, which can handle a higher wattage, and should be the only item plugged into that wall outlet. Always plug appliances directly into a wall outlet/receptacle. Never use an extension cord or power strip.
  • Where can I find installation instructions or detailed spec sheets?
    • You can find all the info needed for your Touchstone Electric fireplace in the manual that came with your unit. If you are missing or misplaced your manual, simply go to the product page of the unit you have on our website where you can find the manual and spec sheet under the specifications tab.
  • The unit shuts off when I turn the heat on. Why?
    • Usually this happens when the current draw on your outlet is too high. If you have multiple appliances plugged into the same outlet as your fireplace, try unplugging the other appliances. If it still shuts off, try running your fireplace on a separate outlet that is not inline with the one previously being used.
  • My ValueLine/Sideline Elite/Fury electric fireplace heater does not turn on or keeps shutting off. Why?
    • This unit has a thermostat used to measure ambient air temperature. Be sure you set the thermometer to the unit's always on setting if you wish to have continuous heat.
  • How do I arrange the crystals in my fireplace?
    • You can arrange the crystals in any manner that you wish.
  • Can I use log set and crystals together?
    • Our electric fireplaces are designed so that only the log set or crystals are used, not both at the same time.
