Our fireplace is 22 years old and we are not able to start the fireplace.


Is this a flame effect electric fireplace with a fan heater underneath it?

If it is, the bulb has gone. Remove the coal or logs and remove the cover. You will see the bulb.

Heater works but there are no longer any "flames."


The flames for most electric fireplaces are a reflection of light cast onto a rotating drum of reflective strands of tinsel. The lack of flames is likely due to a burnt out bulb. In most cases, you must remove the fireplace cover to get to the bulb.

Fire wont flicker on my electric fireplace


most of those electric fireplaces have a band of paper with holes in it that rotates around a light bulb this gives the illusion that the fire is flickering the motors that rotate that band of paper go out all the time its just a little electric motor you might be able to get one from the manufacture

What type of bulb is required for the mcn20 dimplex fire thank you


Steve, a 60 watt, small base, chandelier bulb is what is required. There are usually 3 to 4 of them in most electric fireplaces.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Light for flame went out. How do I replace it?


Remove the firebox glass (actually it's plexiglass) and set off to the side out of the way. Now, Remove the logs from simulated burner and set off to the side out of the way. The glowing coal effect plastic panel under where the logs were, should lift out, exposing the 60 watt, small base, chandelier bulbs, They unscrew counterclockwise from their individual holders. Replace the bulbs and reinstall everything else in reverse order, from the way you took it out. Caution: Be sure the Master On/Off Switch for the fireplace is in the OFF position, before starting any work on the fireplace.

Hope this helps you to solve the problem.

The light has gone out on my dimplex ASP20 fire.


There are several light bulbs that create the flame effect. However, it's unusual for all to go bad at one time. If you still have your Owners Manual, it will tell and show you how to access and change the bulbs. In the meantime, turn the Master ON/OFF switch to OFF and Unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Wait 12 to 15 minutes and plug the unit back in. Turn ON the Master ON/OFF switch and test each function one at a time. Hopefully, the time unplugged gave the unit time enough to reset itself. However, if this continues to occur on a regular basis, contact Dimplex USA, Technical Service at
888-346-7539

If you want to Troubleshoot and access the bulbs yourself: Remove the Plexiglas from the front of the fireplace and carefully remove the logs. The ember bed below where the logs were sitting will lift out and you'll have complete access to the bulbs. The bulbs are 60 watt, small base, chandlier bulbs.

Hope this helps you solve the problem

I need to know what type of bulb(s) is required for replacement. I have no light or flame affect. I can't find the manual.


Most generally use a chandelier bulb that has a small base. It shouldn't exceed 60 watts.

Since you have misplaced your Owners Manual here's a downloadable link that you can print for future reference. http://sankaty.homestead.com/10005721_hef33.pdf

FYI - This fireplace was Originally manufactured by Pyromaster, then FMI and is now owned & manufactured by Monessen Hearth Products.

Hope this helps resolve your problem. Please let me know.

Does dimplex model 6902340100 have a fuse, stopped working no fan, no light took back panel off could not find a visable fuse.


My friend just had the same problem. It turned out to be the Remote Control box,( the little box you plug the Fireplace into so you can use the Remote). He just plugged the Fireplace straight into the wall outlet, (without the Remote) and now it works fine.
