I called the technician to look at the fan which was making noise. He opened the fireplace and told me that fan is bad and told me that he would call me back with an estimate on fixing it but never called back.i tried calling them but no response. I tried to turn on the fireplace but it is not working anymore, its a ripoff.

They only did it around the top whe...
