Question about Dimplex Compact Electric Flame Stove Heater

1 Answer

Whatever rotates inside is making a lot of noise.

Also for a 1500 Watt unit (DS5596 MOD C ) it is producing hardly any heat.

If the unit produces no heat, raise the thermostat, check switches, fuses, circuit breakers, and the water level. Also check the burner's safety controls (see below).
If the unit doesn't produce enough heat, check the combination gauge, then the expansion tank (see below). Next, flush the boiler (see below). If water leaks from a heating system pipe, try repairing it yourself.
If only some radiators in the system heat up, bleed air from the cool units (see below). If you suspect that the circulator requires repair, call an experienced serviceperson.
If the pipes suddenly start clanging, the circulator may need professional service or replacement.
If there is a chronic banging noise, check the slope of all return lines; they must slope toward the boiler to work correctly.
If a single radiator warms only slightly, but evenly, water may be trapped inside. Make sure it slopes toward the return; if it does not, insert a wooden shim under the end opposite the return.

Bionaire BCH9212 does not produce heat


These Bionaires (including your 9212 and its taller version, the 9224) have a small temperature safety relay mounted slightly above the ceramic heating elements. Its purpose it to shut off the elements if they overheat, which I would assume would happen if the fan stops working or possibly if the outlet to the front becomes blocked (and these ceramic elements, which are like a radiator core, do get a lot of dust accumulated on the inside which will block air flow). The sensor is a small unit with exposed contacts and if these contacts open (driven by the temperature sensor connected to them) or if these contacts do not have good contact (say by dirt or oxidation build up that makes them effectively fully or partially open) then the ceramic elements will not work. My best suggestion to explain your problem is that the contacts on that safety switch became dirty during storage. The only way to verify that (and possibly repair the unit) requires taking the outside shell off and cleaning the contacts of the safety switch with either a small, fine file (like the old ignition files) or maybe fine emery cloth.

I have a Lakewood oil filled heater, mod # 7096. It heats, but not heat like it used too. I have checked the on/off switch, thermostat, and both seem to function properly. I have done a resistence check of...


No, the oil does not break down over the years of service. These units are made and sealed from the factory. The purpose is to make a unit that does not require repairs and will run for years. It appears that the TSTAT is not sending proper amperage through. My suggestion is to replace the unit as it costs more to repair then to replace.
Sorry for the bad news, but these units are just not meant for service, hence the price.

The fan is operating on my Model 1500 V portable heater but no heat is coming out. Is there a way to replace the heating element? We are in the Scottsdale, AZ area if you have a service company that...


Most of these heaters are not worth the price of repairing.You will spend more on labor then a new heater will cost. One thing you can try is to shut switch off on the heater and turn the thermostat to high then unplug unit for 10 mins. Plug back in and turn on. Some of these heaters will reset by doing this.It may not help but it costs nothing to try. Hope this helps you. Thanks

I'm puzzled by what may be causing low heat output from a Markel wall-mounted 240V electric heater, new from around 1984; cannot find model number. I'm not sure of the wattage rating. The heater element...


your element may have metered out but still may not getting as hot as it used too found this on my hot water cylinder, the hot water was only warm not hot like it should be so pulled out it meterwd fine but when i placed a new one in the cylinder and let the water heat up it was a lot hotter than it had been and now i can't get out of the shower but it was the element not heating as it should have and thats just old age i bet i don't run as hot when im old and it was nearly thirty year old heater, if it was new from 1984 it sounds like its had a full life i don't really expect heater to last more than thirty years well really more than twenty years anyway and a heater from the eighties couldn't have never been that efficient and **** a bit of power too i'd upgrade to at least a 2000 model heater you'll actually save money by buying a newer one!

I have a patton puh682 1500 watt heater and after a while it just seems to turn off is there some kind of timer or heat control?


Under the main black knob is a bi-metal switch which shuts down the heat at various temps depending on your setting. Their is no timer.

Drawing current but not producing any heat.


I am assuming this is an electric wall mount heater, if the unit is drawing current then it should relate to heat as 3.41 btu is = 1 watt.
take the voltage reading and the amp draw and mutiply them to determine the wattage eg; 240 volts x 20.8 amps = 5000 watts = 17,050 btu. if the unit is fan assited and you are drawing 1 to 2 amps this would indicate the fan is runnning without the heat element being energized hope this helps

When the alarm on the Patton Electric Heater sounds, whay does one do to fix that?


This heater was the determined cause of my total loss house fire. I thought the company would atleast help me find some where else to live, they seem to care. But, as of lately they are doing nothing.
I am told this heater-(prh11- 2008 model- purchased at walmart for about $27.00)
- Had wiring that wasn't up to standards
-1/10,000 units cause fires
-something wrong with the heating element-stops working
- wouldn't stand level
-heating coils
-fires like mine have happened to a few other people
This came directly from a person at Jarden corporation(aka patton-sunbeam)
