Question about Dimplex SS5858N Mid-Size Heater
When we first turn on the heater it runs for about 10 minutes then shuts off blows cool air and sometimes comes back on or we have to shut it off with the switches and wait about 10 minutes and turn the switches back on. the thermostat sometimes clicks when we turn it hoping the heater will come on and sometimes it does not. we called dimplex they said it was not the thermostat? it was a big ticket item (fan or heating element i don't remember) they said it would cheaper to buy another one.

I have the same problem with 3 of the 5 EPX1000s I have fitted in my flat, although mine don't even warm up. They just immediately turn themselves off. My only conclusion is that they are rubbish. Specifically, the so-called overheat protection doesn't work. Avoid.

make sure to unplug the stove take the two rear feet off, remove screws from back you have to bow the back in the center until you can remove it gently lay stove on its front being careful to not damage the door handle.
remove the heater unit from the bottom of stove,there are three screws on each side remove the corner screws leave the 2 center screws until last take a shop vac , clean blower wheel and carefully blow all the dust threw the heating assembly so the air flow isn't restricted. This fixed mine and it works perfectly. the airflow being restricted causes the unit to overheat and shuts off the safety switch.
