SOURCE: the fireplace blower does not

This is a constant problem for ALL electric fireplaces with heaters. Either the Owners Manual fails to the manufacturer not telling you that the heating elements need routine cleaning, because they are sucking in household air to heat it and send it back out, So whatever is float in your household air (dust, lint & pet hair) near the floor goes into it, clogs it up and causes the heating element to overheat and fail. Or customers who have purchased these units don't read the Owners Manual.

These units, no matter who the manufacturer is were not designed to heat for long periods of time. In fact the heater element doesn't produce much more heat that a blow drier on high heat.

The heater and the blower and are in the lower compartment of the firebox. If you can access it, you can clean it with a shop vac and a brush attachment on the end of the hose. Be sure to unplug the fireplace from the wall outlet before attempting this. If cleaning it doesn't help, the blower motor will have to be replaced. You can order one from Dimplex USA.

My dimplex fireplace is too noisy. It's been that way from day one. We should have sent it back, I guess. Everything else is great about it but it sounds like a 747 jet!


I have been dealing with electric fireplace/heaters for several years, now. And for the life of me, I can not think of a thing that would cause a noise like a 747 jet plane. Could you be a little more specific as to which function of the fireplace cause this noise?

Look forward to hearing from you.

If you no longer have your Owners Manual go to the Dimplex home page and click on the Help tab. You should be able to download the Owners Manual for your model fireplace there in a pdf format. Also look for a Trouble Shooting tab.
