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.

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 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 two dimplex XLN storage heater, it was working last year but after someone put damp clothes on it, they are not working, could you help me please


It sounds as though it has tripped the internal cut-out - this can be manually reset quite easily by yourself. It would probably be best to ring Dimplex customer services on 0845 6005111 to get them to talk you through it step-by-step though.

Hi, I don't understand how the early and late boost works on the storage heater. Someone told me I should turn the output switch off when I am at work during the day, then turn the output control up when I...


Output switch is the one that says Cool-Off-Heat. Turn this offwhen you aren't home.
Output control is the thermostat. If you want to heat the room turn up the thermostat to the desired heat after putting the output switch on heat. It will take a few minutes for the heater to get hot. Early boost would be if you want immediate higher blower speed to speed up keep the heated air from being too hot and late boost will hold off the fan until the heater is higher in temp and the air temp discharged will be hotter.

This question has already been asked, but I am still unsure .I own a flat with a Dimplex night store heater. It has two dials. One is 'Room Temp Boost' and the other is 'Input'. 'Input' is obviously the...


it does not relate to the time of day it relates to the temp in the room
as you know most heaters do not run continuously, they cycle on ambiant temp.
the boost setting is actually tweeaking that cycle,
you are actually setting the vairence in the temp setting
each modle is slightly differant but

here is an example

9 late boost, might let the temp differential drop as low as 25 degrees
1 early boost might only allow a 2 degree differential

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.

Early / Late boost in dimplex storage heater


The output setting if turned off isn't adjusting the temperature in the room automatically if its off,and by turning the output up is like turning up the heat.By turning the output switch on you can let the heater automatically control the heat.Still you need to monitor the adjustments to your liking and then you know how hot it will be when you come back into that room.
