Did you clean the heat exchanger (condenser)? It should be cleaned 3-4 times a year

Electric heaters have safety thermostats and possible one has tripped. Also find out why the wire shorted in the first place.

Hi,
If you know that the element is not working and the element is new then you need to use an electrical meter to trace down the power and see where it is stopping at...
My feeling is that you have a bad relay and that is your problem.
The power goes through the relays or contactors to get to the elements... the contacts will burn after a while and then the power will not flow through properly.... or at all.
Check the relays with an electrical meter and make sure that the power is coming in and going out of them...be careful to check and make sure that you haev240 v across the element ends and not just 120v...they will not heat on 120...
Remember that you can have 120v power there but you need to have the other leg and get 240v there for them to work...

The bottom element is usually the first to go, without a amp clamp its hard to tell for sure.
To change it out turn off power and then the water, then drain the tank you will need to open the Pressure Temperature relieve valve, to release the vacuum as water is draining out, You will need a socket wrench to remove the element, Its 1 1/8 inch I think. The hardware store has one you can buy just for the element, if you water has minerals in it you will find debris in the bottom of the tank, you will have to get creative to get the tank clean, a shop vacuum and a pvc pipe small enough to get into the element hole and have fun.

Sounds like a bad thermal fuse or thermostat, check all of them with a multi meter for continuity. as for the heater going out I would check ur venting inside and out the machine. the fuses and heater blow out for a reason?

Dimplex PW4 timer not working with heaters


In UK, you can call 0845 600 5111

The manual is very unclear about:
1) Wiring.
2) Resetting the timer when encountering a problem due to surge, power outage, or malfunction.
3) Troubleshoot section is missing.

Yes, it can be repaired, if Dimplex still stocks that particular heating element. It's not to difficult to replace the heating element, just mark all the wires before removing the old one. Also, it will require removing the logs inside the heater, because you will need to turn the stove upside to do the removal and replacement. Contact Dimplex Technical Support at 1-888-346-7539.

Hope this helps you.

More than likely, the interior of the unit needs to be cleaned. When it's in operation, it sucks dust and link into the fan and heater elements. When it's not, spiders love to go into and build nests. If badly clogged, it can cause the heating element to over heat and shut off. Carefully, removing the back panel of the stove will give you access to just about everything. As far as the flame is concerned, the bulbs may need replacing. Although, it's unusual for all of them to go bad at one time. You or your nephew can replace them after the unit is cleaned. A vacuum that has a hose, brush attachment and crevice tool, will work well in the cleaning of the interior. Be sure to turn the Master ON/Off Switch to OFF & Unplug the unit, before attempting and maintenance on it.

If after performing all of the above, the unit still doesn't work properly, contact Dimplex USA, Technical Service 888-346-7539, for further advice.

Hope this helps to solve your problem. Please let me know.

The fireplace blower does not work therefore there is no or very little heat from my dimplex elect fireplace---thanks


This is a constant problem for ALL electric fireplaces with heaters. Either the Owners Manual fails to the manufacturer not telling you that the heating elements need routine cleaning, because they are sucking in household air to heat it and send it back out, So whatever is float in your household air (dust, lint & pet hair) near the floor goes into it, clogs it up and causes the heating element to overheat and fail. Or customers who have purchased these units don't read the Owners Manual.

These units, no matter who the manufacturer is were not designed to heat for long periods of time. In fact the heater element doesn't produce much more heat that a blow drier on high heat.

The heater and the blower and are in the lower compartment of the firebox. If you can access it, you can clean it with a shop vac and a brush attachment on the end of the hose. Be sure to unplug the fireplace from the wall outlet before attempting this. If cleaning it doesn't help, the blower motor will have to be replaced. You can order one from Dimplex USA.

My Dimplex DFB 4047 won't get very hot


This is an on going problem with electric fireplace/stove type heaters of all types. Not just Dimplex.
They are not designed to run for long periods of time and the heat output is not much more than a blower dryer. In any event, they take in cool air, heat it and send it back out. Over time, the heating element becomes clogged with dust, lint and/or pet air. So, they have to work harder to produce a sufficient amount of heat. Cleaning the heating element with a vacuum that has a hose and brush attachment may help. The heating element and blower are under the stove. See your Owners Manual on how to access it. Be sure to unplug the stove before trying to service/clean it.

No heat or fan when heater is started front lights up

Look at page 4. If this is not it, you would have to see if you are getting power off the circuit board to the heater, should be 120VAC. If not the board is bad. If you do get power, check the thermostat - if it's good (power going thru it) then the heater element is bad.
