Dimplex electric heater ss5858n thermostat cycling on and off

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.

SOURCE: Heat turns off

This is normal, leave it on for an hour and see if the room warms up.

SOURCE: Dimplex Convector Heater EPX1000 turns off by itself

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.

SOURCE: Heater shuts off after a minute or two - fan keeps

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.

Dimplex club heater flicks on/off either on manual or using remote


It sounds like a dodgy thermostat or thermistor to me. When a thermistor goes wrong it can cause what is known as rapid-cycling in a heater, where the unit will keep switching on and off, on and off repeatedly.

I have got an electric fire Place that blows out hot air, well after about 5 mins it stops blowing out hot air and it blows out cold air, can any one help me fix it?


More than likely, the heater element is overheating and the overload switch is turning it off. It could just be a case that the heating element needs cleaning. As they do become clogged with dust and lint, because they take in cool air at floor level, heat it and send it back out. You didn't mention who the manufacturer of your electric fireplace is, but they all work just about the same way (badly, most of the time). Turn OFF the Master On/Off Switch, unplug the fireplace from the wall and leave unplugged for 12 to 15 minutes. Now, would be a good time to clean the interior, if you want to under take it. Plug the heater back in and turn the Master On/Off switch to the On position. Turn ON and set the heater control. If it returns to normal operation, the problem is solved. If the unit continues to have to be reset (if it's a Dimplex) turn the Master Switch Off, unplug the unit and contact Dimplex USA, Technical Service at 888-346-7539 for more information.

Hope this helps solve the problem.

My Dimplex model #6901470100 (purchased new in 2007) just stopped working. It was on then just turned off by itself. Both lightbulbs are OK. What would cause this?


It probably overheated and the overheat module shut the heater down. It may reset itself once it cools down. Or the heating element has burned out. There are a host of issues with these electric fireplaces (not just Dimplex). They are sold as a decorative, supplemental heat source, but in fact, if you get more than a years use out of it without a problem, you're probably the exception. The heaters just aren't meant to run for a long period of time. It's like turning on a blow drier and letting it run for an hour. Nine times out of ten the blower driver will overheat and burn out.

I really wish I had better news for you (I answer this type of question at least 5 to 6 times a week), but I don't.

The only good news would be, if it's still under warranty (one year), have your Proof of Purchase and contact Dimplex USA. Technical Service: 1- 888-346-7539. Customer Service: 800-668-6663

Storage heater smelling when operating - no spills on / in it


Depending on the age of the heater, the insulation material would be fibre glass and totally inert so will not produce any odour. The fire bricks are also odour free. Check the wiring to the heater for loose connections causing heating of the cable or plastic insulation.

Htr shuts off after awhile and won't come back on till it's cooled down


I had the same problem with my heater. It was a cracked fuel line. I replaced the rubber hoses. On mine there was a pick up hose and a feed hose. They were dry cracked. Works great now. Hope that helps you out.
