  • Once you "reset it" did you unplug it for a bit and then replug it in and give it a try? Some people will attempt to put fans in front of the heaters to spread the heat around. This will inhibit the heaters ability to heat and be very counter-productive. The heating element inside your heater is sealed. If it is still not heating for you after you re-set it then it would be my opinion it is time for a new one or perhaps a warranty exchange should it be with in the specified warranty time frame. And to make sure you are turning the temperature higher than it is in the room to make the thermostat engage and turn the heater on? If all of this is so, given the fact the light is on we know there is power going to the unit itself, then it may be time to get a new one or attempt a warranty repair. I have listed the Dimplex web addresses for the US and UK so you can contact them. I wish I had some repair advice for this but with these types of heaters there is not much to them. They are not really serviceable.

Regards, Tony

The heater may need to reset itself. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the heater from the wall outlet. Wait 12 - 15 minutes and plug the heater back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you normally would. Hopefully, that 12 - 15 minute timeout allowed the heater to reset itself. If this continues to occur, contact Dimplex Technical Service at

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

Sadly, the short answer is "No, not safely". Because, repairing it won't solve the problem of why it started leaking in the first place.

Sorry, I wish I had better news for you.

Turn it off and if it is not under warranty dispose of properly. These are sealed units and there is no way to refill it. They should never leak, and when they do that is because of a bad weld or rusted metal condition. Sorry this is probably not the solution you want, if it is under warranty return it to where ever you purchased it. It leaks when it is warm because the oil gets hot and thins down to about the viscosity of water.
