SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 3 amp fuse blowing in York central A/c

a blown fuse is a sign of a short circuit. either connections are touching each other or a relay is busted. Have it checked. Have the system leak checked also, this would result to better cooling/heating and energy savings.

Hi, I have recently moved into a new flat with simplex storage heaters, however the letting agent has no idea how to use them and the landlord is away. They seem to be really old models which you turn on...


Here is a link to a video that will help you understand the theory of how the Dimplex Storage Heater works. It may be a little newer than the model you have, but it does the same thing.

Hi I have just moved into a new house and there is a musty smell coming from the electric Dimplex heaters fixed to the walls. is there any way of getting rid of this smell? thanks# Mary


Are the heaters hydronic? (Heated water flowing thru tubes) If so, the musty smell is because the water has been leaking which is obviously a problem. I know you mentioned that they are electric heaters, but "musty smell" goes hand in hand with moisture.

I have just moved in to a flat with a vent axia storage heater. I switched it on last night and although the output in off it is still heating up the room today. Is that normal? thanks Heather


Yes, Heather, it's working correctly. It lives up to it's name "storage heater". When you turned it on last night, it heated and at the same time it was storing heat to be used later, during peak electrical use hours, without having to use any electricity. It's working as it should.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

We have recently moved into our house which uses Dimplex storage heaters ,but I have never used them before how can i use them to the best effeciency


This type of heater is found primarily in European countries and Australia. They are designed to take advantage of Off Peak Electric Rates. Thereby, saving the consumer on their electric bill.

Below is a link that will explain to you the proper operation of your storage heater. You can print it for future reference, if you like.

I have a dimplex electralog model cs4416 and it is still heating but will not blow the heat out what can i do


I beleive the heater and fan switch are a dual unit. Mine has a AUOne ST 360. I pulled the part outand it the copper is very pitted and corroded. The problem I have found is that this switch is made in China and I have had no luck finding a US distributor.Electralog/Dimplex... has an toll free number but it is hard to get through. 1-888-346-7539. If anyone gets through on thier problem, please ask about price and delivery and where to order. I would love to see this posted.
