Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a Dimplex XL6N heater in my bathroom which was already there when we moved in a few months ago. It has worked OK up to now but has suddenly stopped working though the light on the power switch still comes on & off as before. I have not obstructed the vents or any of the things you're not supposed to do. I do have the instruction book which would indicate it may be an emergency cut-out or the element may have burnt out(??). Is this the sort of thing I could investigate myself or should I get someone in to look at it? Thanks, Fiona

Hi Fiona, Unless you a little about elec. and have or get a multi-meter to test the circuits I would suggest to call someone. To test it yourself FIRST MAKE SURE THE POWER IS DISCONNECTED!! Then you will need to disconnect the element and ohm it out to see if it is open or closed. If you get a reading then it is closed and ok. There are also limit switches that keep the heater from over heating that will fail. Other than that there's not much to a heater. If the fan does not come on it's probably a relay.

No hot water from kitchen tap


The hot side of the faucet is most likely plugged with something that came up thru the water system. The average thankless waterheater requires at least 1/2 to 3/4 gpm flow rate for the unit to sense flow and turn on. If there is not enough flow it will not fire and heat the water. Not sure about this particular unit but a few require at least one full gallon per minute flow. So chances are that if you fix the faucet, you fix the hot water issue at the same time

My dimplex night storage heater has stopped working.


...not too sure of your model but all dimplex heaters to my knowledge have an 'overload' cut out built into the system. Ours is more up to date but still goes now and then, problem is you have to get into the electrics and click the reset button, normally near or on the thermostat it's self, could be a small white plastic button, or a piece metal sticking up that needs pressing down to reset...but please before attempting make sure that you TURN OFF THE ELECTRIC / REMOVE THE FUSE/ WHAT EVER IT TAKES TO CUT ANY CHANCE OF AN ELECTRIC SHOCK!!!...because I can and will get you if it can ;-)... if your not a competent electrician please get hold of one !... good luck.

Dimplex night storer, how does it work?


Are you setting the input to maximum and the boost to late? You do not say what size the heater is in either kilowatts or kilowatt hours eg 2kW or 18kWh. These heaters will tend run out of stored heat in the evening especially in colder weather.
