Question about Air Conditioners

1 Answer

I have recently bought a Dimplex DX300TF portable heater for my conservatory, it heats it very quickly and efficiently the only problem is every time it switches itself on when the turbo switch is on it screeches, it only does it for a few seconds but it is really annoying and frightens my cats to death. Should I return it and get another one?

Yes, it sounds as if the fan bearing is kaput.

Hi I have just bought a Dimplex Electric Eco Oil-Free Heater, it didnt come with instructions on how to use the time and Im bewildered, Any instruction would be greatley appreciated


Karin, here is a link to the Owner's Manual for your new heater. You can download & print it for future reference. Also, if you haven't already done so, register the 5 -year Warranty, so that it will remain in effect.

Hi I have a night store heater model 79168 in my new home and no idea how to use it!! Please help :)


Here is a good article for Dimplex, a storage heater manufacturer, that explains the the theory and how it works. I'm sure you will find it interesting. http://www.dimplex.com/storage_heaters#

Basically, thermal storage heaters heat ceramic bricks during off peak hours (during the night), store the heat to be used during peak hours (during the daylight hours), when electricity is more expensive per kilowatt hour.

Hope this helps you.

I have recently bought a second-hand electric fire which looks exactly like The Adam Ribbon chrome Electric Fire. It has three switches for flame only and then two heat settings. What i don't understand is...


The dial, numbered 1-9, is probably the heater fan speed control. Or it also could be the flame effect control (speeds the flames up or slows them down). But, I suspect its the heater fan speed control. Either way, it works like a rheostat. As far as efficiency is concerned, despite what the manufacturer may say, electric fireplace effect heaters are not that efficient in the long term. Nor, are they that reliable. They do require routine maintenance to increase their longevity.

Hope this answered your questions.

Instruction Manual


I had the same problem. If you are in Australia, the Dimplex Customer Service number is 1300 6739 033. I phoned and they are mailing me the instructions. Maybe don't say you bought the machine at a garage sale.  
If you are not in Australia, try the way I did to get your local customer service number - Google the product number and go to the Dimplex website, and there should be a "Contact Us' button with a phone number or mailing address.

Would like to know the wattage oiutput on my vulcan duel fuel oil heater


¿ Oil heaters do not generate wattage. On the name plate for the unit it may give you an AMP draw. Multiply Amps times Volts to get wattage use when in operation.
