Dimplex LC Series causing wall to get very hot


Talked to my electrical supplier and he told me to avoid them. They are the same wattage in a smaller package, thus creating more heat in a smaller area rather than spreading it out to a larger baseboard. He said he doesn't know how they passed fed. Regulations. I am on the fence if I should get them.

Does this thing have a fan? i turned it on its getting warm but im a bit confused on how the heat is to move around!


Hello, I can understand your confusion. This type of heater is a radiator, there is no fan. How it works is by the oil heating inside the unit. You will feel it actually get so hot, that it is uncomfortable to the touch. The air right near the heater will get warm and then it starts to rise. As it rises, more air moves in to take it's place, and then this air rises and the cycle continues as long as the heater is running. This is the same principle as the steam and hot water radiators. I have used these heaters and they really do warm up a room.

My glo-warm wall mount heater pilot light will not light. I tried the ignitor, saw blue spark , and nothing. I also tried using a lighter, I got it to light barely once and that was it. I can't smell any...


Without the model number of the heater it is hard to give an accurate answer but I will give you some suggestions.

I would start with cleaning the pilot ODS assembly.

I would check the regulator on the heater...if it is propane these gas get raw gases in the regulator and cause the unit not to pressure up correctly.

Give these items a try first before replacing any parts.

Thanks

Cord gets hot where you plug into outlet hot meaning warm to the touch but can hold your hand around cord and is comfortable.Is this dangerous? Could this start a fire?


Not dangerous at all. All heaters create some warmth around where the plug enters the outlet. WARM, not hot, if it's HOT too the touch, then it's a problem. Never use extension cords, and never splice the cord... also don't run the wire under rugs etc... you'll be fine.

What kind of extension cord to use?


You should use a cord with the ground wire in it. If you're running a heater and the wire is getting hot, it's not whether it should be an indoor or outdoor cord it's the wire size that's the problem.
If you wire is getting hot you need a larger wire size.
Depending on the amps of the heater rule of thumb
15 amps a minimum of 14 gauge with ground
20 amps a minimum of 12 gauge with ground
30 amps a minmum of 10 gauge with ground
If you are using a cord over 15 to 20 feet then you may want to go to a larger wire size.
You will know if the wire size is correct if you let the heater run for a while 20 to 30 minutes and then feel the wire it should just barely feel warm it shouldn't get real warm or hot.
