How To Assemble An Electric Fireplace - Classic Flame Flagstone Fireplace

Learn how to assemble an electric fireplace from Classic Flame!

Ok, so you just bought yourself a new electric fireplace (or won one from, and when you got it home, you realized you don’t know how to assemble an electric fireplace. If you are like me, you are not the handiest person in the world with tools, and the idea of assembling anything is scary. Fear not! Learning how to assemble an electric fireplace is a snap! And the only tools you need to provide are a Β screwdriver or cordless drill and your hands! The following is a step-by-step guide on how to assemble an electric fireplace – specifically a Classic Flame Flagstone Fireplace.

How To Assemble An Electric Fireplace

First, be sure to account for all the pieces and hardware to assemble your new fireplace. In the case of the one I am assembling, that includes 6+1 extra 1/4in x 1-1/4in bolts, 12+1 extra 1/4in x 1/2in bolts, 18+1 extra flat washers, 6+1 extra L-brackets, 6 screws, 2 tipping hardware restraints, a touch-up pen, an Allen key, and a partridge in a pear tree (just kidding). The pieces include the hearth/base, the left side panel, the right side panel, the top frame, and the mantel. Your insert will be in a separate box. Once you have your hardware and pieces accounted for, you are ready to assemble!

Locate the hearth/base set it on the floor near where your fireplace will be placed when it is finally assembled with the finished side out. If you are uncertain which is the finished side, look at both sides and determine which side most closely resembles the top. That would be your finished side.

Locate the left side panel and attach 3 L-brackets to the bottom (that’s the end without the metal bracket sticking out of it) with the 1/4in x 1/2in bolts and washers. Place the washers on the bolts, then line up the holes in the L-brackets with the pre-drilled holes in the Β side panel, and run the bolt up into these holes using the Allen key until they are snug (DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!) Then attach the panel to the base with the washers and 1/4in x 1-1/4in bolts in the same manner. Repeat this step for the opposite side.

For this step, you will need some assistance from one or maybe two other people as to not hurt yourself or the fireplace. Once you have the assembly completed from step 2, attach the top frame to this assembly by aligning it in place atop the assembly from step 2 and attaching it with the 1/4in x 1/2in bolts with washers from the inside. Be sure to align the top frame pre-drilled holes with the holes in the metal brackets atop the side panels.

Locate the mantel. Yeah, they have a tendency to wander off, so just whistle and they will return (again, just kidding!). Place the mantle atop the completed assembly finished side up. Attach the mantle to the assembly with the 6 screws. Be sure to align the pre-drilled holes in the mantle with the holes in the metal bracket atop the assembly. Our mantel did not have pre-drilled holes, so don’t panic if this is the case for yours. Simply use a 1/4in drill bit and drill and pre-drill your own holes, or just run the screws through the holes in the metal bracket with the drill and into the mantel, making sure to check the mantel periodically to see if it is properly aligned atop the assembly and even on both sides (you may need someone to eyeball it for you).

Next remove the two mounting brackets located on the inside of the left and right front panels and set them aside. I did not say throw them away. You will need them again shortly. πŸ™‚

Your fireplace insert will be in a separate box from the mantel. Locate it and carefully unpack it. Then lift the insert into place into the back of the assembly and center it in the opening. Do not slide the insert into place as this will scratch the base and your spouse will hurt you. *gulp*

Now reinstall the mounting brackets you removed in step 5 (I told you you would need them again shortly). This will hold the insert in place and flush against the mantel front panel. Finally, position your fireplace in its final position. Do this carefully as to not damage the unit, your floor, or yourself. You may then install the tipping restraints into the pre-drilled holes in the back of the unit. Then locate a stud in the wall behind where your unit is located and screw the tipping restraints into the studs to prevent the unit from tipping over. Learning how to assemble an electric fireplace isn’t so bad after all, is it?

  1. That looks easy and it is absolutely beautiful.

  2. What a great step by step tutorial. Very detailed! Now I just need to win this so I’ll have one to install!!! πŸ™‚

  3. I had no idea how easy this was! Although, we have a real fireplace in our den, I would LOVE one for the basement! Looking forward to the giveaway!

  4. Great review, we have a gas fireplace love it! Glad our’s came assembled, it’s great backup heat source. They look so real.

  5. Tammie Gilbertson McLeod says

    We are having a very tight budget this year and our electric heat bill is usually 250.00 a month in the winter. This would be a wonderful thing to win!

  6. I could put it together but I also have 5 brothers to help out as well!!!

  7. vickie marks allbright says

    i would ask my partner to help me put it together she is much more handier when it comes to things like thsi than i am

  8. Robin Wickman says

    I could assemble this by myself but I really wouldn’t want to!!!

  9. That is very pretty. I would have my husband help me put it together.

  10. I looks pretty straightforward and I could probably do it myself. I might get my husband to help if I needed some extra hands.

  11. I would have my boyfriend help me it together. He would just take over anyways!

  12. It is gorgeous and yes, I probably could put it together myself but as putting things together is my hubby’s ‘thing’, I would let him do it and just help as needed. πŸ™‚

  13. I believe I could assemble this one or the one that I’m gonna win :). Thanks for the giveaway!!

  14. I could probably do it if I tried but I have an extremely handy hubby and a baby that probably has reflux so she doesn’t let me put her down for long. I’d have hubby do it. πŸ™‚

  15. Sandy VanHoey says

    I’d be giving to my daughter so her and her hubby could assemble it and i’d give them a hand

  16. Jennifer Boehme says

    Simple instructions, but I would use extra hands from my brothers to not drop anything. My living room has a gas wall heater right now that is over 35 years old, and scary. This would be so great! My mom has something like this and the heat it puts out is so warm! Thanks for the review, and cautions!

  17. This looks amazingly easy- I probably could do it but since I am trying to win for my daughter either she or her husband would be the ones assembling it. πŸ™‚

  18. Deborah Rosen says

    Looks easy enough – and while I could do it (with some help with the heavy lifting part), it’s only fair that I let hubby have the fun of it. πŸ™‚

  19. william saylor says

    I think I could put it together. Looks pretty easy.

  20. Elizabeth Wisniewski says

    I’m sure my Husband would do most of the assembly, but I’d help too.

  21. I could definitely do this on my own!

  22. I could probably do it, but I know my husband would insist on setting it up for me πŸ™‚ I love the unit, and it would be great to have in our bedroom.

  23. Gina Brickell says

    I think I could probably do it if I needed to, but would easily give the job to my husband.. Let him worry about it!

  24. Hubby and my son are really handy and I’m sure they both could put this together. How pretty it looks!

  25. I want to win and I would get my hubby to assemble it!!

  26. Ok WHEN i win (hopefully) I will come back here and show my fiance your tutorial and let him do it. We don’t work well together when we are assembling stuff. Im better at holding flashlights or handing him stuff.

  27. im sure hubby would help but i think i can do that! seems easy enough…

  28. april yedinak says

    That didn’t seem as hard as a I thought it would be to assemble. I would still try to sucker my dad into building it for me. Everything I build ends up on a slant.

  29. Tracy Wheeler says

    Doesn’t seem like it would be that hard, as long as I could get someone to entertain my 3 year old and keep her frm “helping” lol

  30. I would def need my husbands help to install this, I think he could handle it.

  31. Dorothy Boucher says

    WOW!! that was really easy, very nice looking fireplace at that.. i definitely can put this together πŸ˜‰ thanks for the review and taking such great pictures

  32. Lynee Kelley says

    Oh I could definitely do this! But then again, my husband would take over and do it for me lol

  34. Yes, I think I could manage this by myself!

  35. I would let my husband to it because he is my put together guy.

  36. charlotte twitchell says

    I could do it myself but I would have my hubby help along with my son.

  37. I think that i can do it

  38. Brandi Price says

    My husband would help me if I couldn’t do it! LOL

  39. Debra L. Guillen says

    I’d have to leave the assembly to my hubby..I am clueless when it comes to that kind of thing

  40. Kathy Stahlman says

    I;ve put many things together so this should’nt be too hard.

  41. I might need a bit of help…..but the instructions are great!

  42. Jennifer Rote says

    It looks easy enough, but I would still have my oldest son put it together for me.

  43. I would have my son help me assemble this, because he’s great help with everything. But I could do it myself if I wanted.

  44. I think that I could put it together myself, but it would be a lot easier if I ask my husband to help me!
    This would look great on my lanai…

  45. It seems simple enough but I am going to say that I would still have my husband do it πŸ™‚

  46. I would definitely leave the assembling up to my husband. He is super handy!

  47. That seems pretty easy. I think I could do it myself.

  48. Regina Griffin says

    Have wanted one of these forever. So beautiful. Although it looks fairly simple from the instructions I would get my brother and my nephew to put it together for me.

  49. I think I would make my boyfriend do it.

  50. Diane Kinney says

    You lost me at hardware. My husband would have to do it!

  51. I would put it together myself =D

  53. tamatha hunter says

    I would probably have to get the hubby to do it, with my supervision of course

  54. I could put it together myself! My Dad will be in town for the holidays so he could help me too πŸ™‚

  55. That looks simple enough for anyone, but I think I’d have my husband, HHH, put it together for me. He is a Maintenance Supervisor by trade & he has all the tools & toys to get the job done pretty quick, and safely too!

  56. I could do that!!! From the previous question, I like the Transanti furnitue

  57. Janine Horn says

    Yes I feel that I can assemble it by myself. I have learned to be pretty handy; If I really got stuck – I would ask my friend for some help, But it doesn’t look hard

  58. jamie lafever says

    i think it looks easy. me and my husband could do this or maybe just me.

  59. Cindi Decker says

    This looks pretty easy. I think I could do it myself – but I’m sure my husband wouldn’t think so!

  60. Joanne DiSaia says

    Sounds easy, I’ve learned not to have hubby help..too stressful!!!

  61. krista grandstaff says

    I really think I can put this together on my own, but I’d probably let my husband help πŸ˜‰ He’s good for the heavy stuff…lol..




  64. i know i could put it together but might need a little bit of help from hubby!

  65. Tanya White says

    It does look easy but This is something I would ask hubby to help with just so we can do it together

  66. Heck no, I couldn’t do it alone. I have epilepsy and I’m a klutz lol. My hubby would help!

  67. Amy McHargue says

    I could do this in an hour or so…I think πŸ™‚

  68. I could totally assemble this on my own…as long as my hubs was keeping an eye on our toddler! We might even have to draw straws to get to put it together…we love to assemble!

  69. I could put this together. I have had to put together much worse without instructions lol. I could do it.

  70. Andrea Johns says

    I would if my husband would let me but he would totally take over.

  71. I would just make my husband do it..hes a carpenter so he can fix or build just about anything..and quick!

  72. barbara morton says

    I would have my husband put it together..i dont think i could…not enough patience.

  73. Great prize. It does sound easy to put together. Much easier if my husband would do it.

  74. I’d have my son help me. He has new tools and would be happy to use them for this setup.

  75. Im sure my son could put it together hes good at that kind of stuff

  76. I would give this to my firend that always needs more heat in her house .. she would have her dad or boy friend do it ..

  77. I coud probably do this myself, but I’d be better off with some help – I’d recruit my husband to help me!

  78. Though it doesn’t seem too difficult, I would rather my husband do it.

  79. Jo-Ann Brightman says

    Your instructions will be very helpful to anyone who buys or wins an electric fireplace

  80. Nancy Bradley says

    I could probably could put it together but I would have my husband assemble it. He has more patience than I do.

  81. Great instructions! I think I could and WOULD do this all myself. I have a hubby who has the tendency to NOT read directions and just try it on the fly. I am kind of a tool and project girl so I know I can do it. I love the brick facing on this fireplace. Thanks for hosting such a beautiful and useful item!

  82. I actually like putting stuff together, I could put a fireplace together and have fun doing it!

  83. Michelle.A. says

    I think my husband and I could put this together. It’s so beautiful.

  84. I probably could put this together on my own. The instructions are very clear πŸ™‚

  87. sherry jennings says

    I really love this Looks so easy to put together all by myself but I would probably need some help I would get my husband to help me

  88. I *could* do it, but I’d still make hubby do it…if I act dumb about construction and car stuff all the time, he’ll always get it done for me. Just like men act dumb about dishes and laundry…

  89. All my life I’ve always wanted a fireplace in my home & never had it. This is soooooo beautiful, but as far as putting it together. Do you see you have a MAN putting it together? Yes, I would definitely leave it up to the hubby to put this together for sure!!!

  90. Brenda Burgess says

    Yes, I definitely think if I win it, I can put it together.

  91. sue killgore says

    I have a son and several son-in-laws who would be willing to assemble this for me if I couldn’t get it finished. But I could get close.

  92. That doesn’t look too hard to assemble! I bet I could do it without any help πŸ™‚ But I’d make my husband do it anyway lol.

  93. meegan whitford says

    It looks rather easy to assemble but I am super challenged in the assembly and tools department so my dad or brother would be doing it for me…lol

  94. I could probably do it, but I’d definitely get my husband to do it instead. πŸ˜‰

  95. I would get my boyfriend or my dad to assemble it for me πŸ™‚

  96. Marylou Sakosky says

  101. rhonda nicholas says

    i would read the instruction while the hubby assembles …lol

  102. I would probably get help from a friend to install

  103. i could do it, but its more of a job for my husband

  104. Shayla Burks says

    That is really pretty, and useful tips, in case I need to ever do this. (In fact, I may have my father take a look at this post…)

  105. Sherry Compton says

    Good detailed instructions and photos, but I still would want some help. My husbands brain and craftiness would really be great to get this installed.

  106. I could never (safely) do this. But my husband could easily. I’d love to have this for our bedroom!

  107. sara m ford says

    This is amazing I would love to have one in my home way cool!

  108. sara m ford says

    I know my hubby would be able to put this together in no time

  109. Calshondra Williams says

    Pretty sure I could put this together along with hubby’s help ofcourse. It would look amazing in my living room.

  110. ANGEL JACKLYN says

    I like how you were a bit comedian-like throughout the assembly instructions. I thought, “Oh, well, this can’t be too hard with only needing a drill & your hands” & then once you named off every little screw & bracket that came with it I was like, “Riiiiight” because that’s were I’d be lost at… that’s what men are for *smirk*

    Anyway, I’m crossing my fingers on this giveaway! I’ve never won anything as big or nice as this, & with a 5 family household we need to save on our heat bill ($200 a month) so it’d be a great contribution. I wonder, can you actually put your hands “through” & touch the logs or is that a box with glass there so you can’t??

    PS Very well done. You deserved this fireplace!

    • The fire logs are encased in glass and, one thing we should also mention, the glass is not hot to the touch. There is only one small part above the glass that actually gets hot, so I feel this is definitely the most safe choice of heating in this category. On my opinion, someone would have to hit it just right to get burned – and probably not very severely at that.


  111. i’ve already helped put one together. it was pretty easy .

  112. Anita Leibert says

    I don’t believe I would have any problems assembling this myself, but I am certain that if I were to win, Hubby would be right there helping! Thank you for all the detail you put into the assembly instructions πŸ™‚


    ya i could do that just gotta read it and look at pic’s but my hubby would most liky take it over lol ty for a chance we would love this

  114. Ah yes I could put that together easily,and would be very willing too.

  115. That looks simple enough. Thanks for the tip about not scratching it. πŸ™‚

  116. I know my husband could put this together. I’d help him!

  117. jodi bradshaw says

    oh i thought you would have to put holes in the wall lol. i would get my neighbor to do all of it and watch lol!

  118. I would definitely get my boyfriend to help with this one!

  119. Jennifer Hedden says

    I would probably have my brother and fiance assemble it.

  120. Jessica Fortner says

    I’m sue I could assemble this as I have assembled many things on my own as a single momma, but with the kids ehhh..I’d probably just have my dad do this one LOL

  121. Looks so easy to assemble – Love it!

  122. Jennifer Mae Hiles says

    It’s beautiful! Could I assemble it? Heck yeah, I can do anything I set my mind to! But , I would probably make my husband do it anyway, lol

  123. I don’t know if I could do it by myself, but I bet with the help of my brother or brother-in-law, we could get it assembled.

  124. wendy schueman says

    I think I could assemble this myself. Thank you for this giveaway!

  125. Ellen Levickis says

  127. Anne Alexander says

    Im totaly lost but I would pay someone to do it.Also, my grown kids and daugther might help me out for Christmas
    I have prayed for one of this and have an electric stove already in the bedroom. This would be used in the living room or family room
    God blees yu all

    Hope @PRAY that I win.

  128. I’m pretty sure I could put it together myself. Unlike my spouse I actually read intructions.

  129. I could do this, seems easy enough but why when I have the handiest guy around. Thanks for showing us how easy it is to put together, a real selling point.

  130. Oh please ,i much rather get help than just fuss at myself, that;s no fun [ SURELY ] I WOULD most likely need or want the help!!!!!!!!!!!!!THANKS

  131. lauren engbrock says

    definitely not but hubby could

  132. Good instructions! I could probably manage it but would rather have my friend’s husband help πŸ™‚

  133. I would bribe some friends to help.

  134. Stephanie Larison says

    This looks beautiful! I’m not too handy, I would let hubby assemble it.

  135. kimerly holgate says

    it looks pretty easy i usualy assemble all mythiongs so i dont think it would be a problem

  136. Victoria R. says

    Wow! I can’t believe how simple this was to put together – normally I’m terrible at assembly but your pictures and tips – wow! I’m shocked!

  137. I could totally do it. I like to follow instructions…but if I had a problem, I’d call my Step father. HE is handy that way!

  142. jenny willis says

    I could assemble it no prob.

  143. Rebecca Reinwalt says

    Looks pretty straight forward on how to put it together and once upon a time I could have done it by myself. But due to 3 separate injuries to right hand/arm and a surgery gone bad on the left, I would have to have my son do it (fiance’ is about as handy mechanically as a rocking chair with no rockers) and I would have to play assistant.

  144. I usually have my dad help me put stuff together like this πŸ™‚

  145. I could definietly do this!

  146. How can Something so beautiful can be so easy to make

  147. That doesn’t look difficult. It is beautiful.

  148. I would get my husband to help me, or more likely, just get him to do it! πŸ™‚

  149. I would let my husband set this up. It’s always bad when we try to do this stuff together!

  150. I’d need GF’s help.

  151. Oh wow! That doesn’t look that difficult at all. I could put that together myself. I’ve put together a ton of furniture that was far more complicated than that. I was expecting to see something really complicated, but that’s not bad at all.

  152. nancy thomas says

    this is beautiful

  153. This would be ALL my husband’s job. I’d smile and hand him the tools!

  154. You make this look so easy! I could probably do it on my own, but I know my husband would end up taking over! Putting things together is his forte. I love the way this looks in your home.

  155. Jill A. Collins says

    Assembling this would definitely be my husband’s job!

  156. Jessica Dunn says

    I could put that together. It’s not that hard.

  157. i do not think y bf could do it we have to the guy next door to hlep

  158. Cheryl Rahkonen says

    I am positive I could assemble this fireplace with the help of my daughter. We always assemble everything because my husband will not read the instructions – that can lead to disaster. The instructions for this fireplace are quite clear so I do not think I would have any problem.

  159. Phyllis Adams says

    It looks pretty easy so I think I would try to assemble it myself .

  160. Carol Kiser says

    Love all the pics to follow step by step! I would get my handy dandy sister to help me put this together.

  161. Kristi Cartwright says

    I like to THINK I could do it, but if I couldn’t my first recruit for help would be my hubby….second would be my dad who works with propane heaters/logs/etc., so I think he could use some of that knowledge to help! πŸ™‚

  162. Danielle Papsis says

    Could I assemble this? Maybe… I’d more than likely have my boyfriend do it since he could do it much faster.

  163. Craig Wiggins says

    I could totally assemble this!

  164. Tracy Awalt Juliano says

    I’d definitely call in reinforcements. I don’t play well with nuts and bolts.

  165. looks easy. I could do it myself


    i could assemble

  167. Tracy Pryor says

    It looks pretty easy to assemble. I’ve put together a lot of Ikea furniture so I think I could handle this.

  168. Mary Jo Mudd says

    Looks pretty easy. I could put this together myself, but Im sure my husband would want to do it lol

  169. I am pretty sure I would let my husband help me assemble this,

  170. Amanda Miller says

    It looks easy enough but I’ll tell ya… I would have my husband do it! LOL I just don’t have the patience and he does!

  171. Carol Pennington says

    Seems straightforward enough. I could do it easily I think with the help of my teenaged son.

  172. I’d probably try myself and then get my husband to help, if needed. πŸ™‚

  173. i think i could do it

  174. I think I could assemble it but I’d leave it to my husband who can fix anything.

  175. Danielle Ring says

    I could totally put one of these together! I’ve bought items from Walmart that I guarantee were harder to put together!

  176. It looks very easy but I would get help from the Hubby.

  177. Cheryl Chervitz says

    I believe that I could put this together with my hubby. I’m better at that then he is, but he does help sometimes!

  178. Crystal Irvin says

    Well, it doesn’t look that bad. But a) I will to buy/borrow an electric screwgun thing, and b) this would be a project for my hubby and my dad to do “together”

  179. Wow! I would say even I could do this, but given some problems I’ve had assembling Ikea stuff in the past, I think I’d bring in the SO for assistance. Just in case.

  180. The Hubby would start it and get pissed off lol and I would have to finish it lol

  181. This looks too complecated for me. I would have to get some help from my guy friends to assemble one

  182. I would get my husband to do it for sure!

  183. I could do this, I love putting things together.

  184. I would have to have my husband do this for me. πŸ™‚

  185. Sue Wilson says

    I think I could put it together, but would probably ask my husband to help me. I would so love to win this.

  186. Jennifer Crane says

    I think I can, I think can,No really I’ll have the husband do it I hope but if not I think I can.

  188. It looks simple enough to build but I would still get help to save time. It is beautiful!

  189. I could put it together looks simple Thanks so much for the chance Happy Holiday’s πŸ™‚

  192. Shawna Summers says

    I’m sure I could do it, but if not, that’s what my handy dandy husband is for =)

  193. Rena Roberts says

    I would have my husband put it together, with my help, of course. I really like the one you got and it seems pretty easy to assemble.

  194. I think I could assemble this myself

  195. Yes, I think between me and my husband, we could get the job done quite well!

  196. ellen beck says

    I am a carpenters wife and could likely put this together myself but would likely as hubby to double check my work- he is a perfectionist, and with electricity involved I would want the safety of it being put in right.

  197. Ingrid Echard says

    I love building furniture, I think I could manage!

  198. This would replace the broken heater whe have in the upstairs. It gets so cold in there now. And I’d have to get my brother over to help with this. He has really good tools.

  199. Cheryl DeGroat says

    It looks fairly easy to put together, but if I did it it would be leaning to one side, so my son would actually put it together for me. I tried to put the kerosene heater together and that was a disaster.

  200. My husband & I would do it together.

  201. Debby Etling says

    So I would never ever let anyone in the house put this together. I would do it myself. LOL I enjoy putting things together and I have patience. A lot compared to anyone else in the house.

  202. Suzanne Deleon says

    WOW! You made it look so easy! I would like to TRY to assemble it by myself, but since I am visually impaired, I can just imagine what it would look like after I was through with it! LOL I would definitely need the hubbies help! Yours turned out absolutely gorgeous! We live in a very drafty old farm house, and I would so love to have this type of heater in the house than the unsightly generic ones that you want to hide out of site! I would love to win this, because it is definitely way out of our budget! Thanks for this amazing opportunity! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

  215. Caitlin Clark says

    I love this thing! I’d get my hubby to help me assemble it though…

  225. I could do it, but I would get the guys to do it!

  226. Sacha Schroeder says

  254. Traci Radway says

    It looks pretty similar to a lot of other pre-fab things I’ve put together – course, it always helps to have an extra pair of hands and someone to help study the directions! I think my hubby can handle the job as my co-pilot πŸ™‚

  255. This would be no problem to put together for me.

  256. NO way I could do this alone. I would definitely get hubby to help He’s handy!

  257. WOW… that is beautiful! I think I could actually put that together myself… as long as I had another pair of hands for helping me hold things straight while I attached them. πŸ™‚
