SOURCE: How do you wire a dayton electric unit heater?

red, white, and black will be your high voltage. Green will probably be for ground and yellow and orange go to the thermostat. I can confirm on Monday when I have access to manuals.

You can either purchase one from DimPlex or online from Granger Electric.

How do I change the bulb in my dimplex wynford inset fire?


On the back of the cabinet, about 3" to 4" up from the bottom, you should see a removable rectangular panel. Removing it, will give you access to the bulbs. Which are 60 watt, small base chandelier bulbs.
Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before removing the rear access panel.


Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.

Flame effect has stopped but fans still working. Can it be repaired. I am in Christchurch.


More than likely, the bulbs that produce the fame effect have burned out and need to be replaced.

Robyn, you can access the bulbs by removing the rectangular cover on the back of the stove. It's located just above the bottom edge on of the back cover. The bulbs are 60 watt, small base chandelier bulbs. They simply unscrew to remove. Be sure to unplug the unit, before attempting any maintenance.

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

Bottom bulbs don't work


Sounds light the 2- 60 watt small base, chandelier bulbs need changing. To access the bulbs and change them does require some dismantling of the base of the insert.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it that you can download and print for future reference. Pay particular attention to Page # 5 - Maintenance - Changing Light Bulbs.

I can't to find the area to replace the bulb. Everything works except for the light To eacy to leave on without the light. Where is the bulb located and what should I purchase to replace it. model #...


On the back of the heater stove, you will see a rectangular panel in the center, near the bottom of the stove. If you remove that (by removing the screws that hold it in place), you will have access to the small base, 60 watt. chandelier bulbs that you will need to replace. Be sure to turn the stove OFF and unplug it, before attempting to replace the bulbs.

Hope this helped you and Happy Easter!

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

The "flame" on my unit


The circuitry that controls the flickering flames may have gone bad. Or a wiring connections to the bulb harness may be loose. In some cases it's just hard to know because these electric fireplace/ heaters aren't intended to last a long time. I'm not throwing stones at just Dimplex. That's the case with 98% of the manufacturers. We stopped selling electric fireplaces 4 or 5 years ago, just for that reason. Just to many callbacks on them, after as little as a year..

I think too, that most people who have them don't thoroughly read their Owners Manual and provide the routine maintenance that's required. And, I'm not saying that's the case with you. But, I wish I had a dollar for every questioner I have provided a possible solution for.

If you still have your Owners Manual try to trace the circuitry and trace the wiring for the light bulbs. You may find the answer there.

Hope I've been of some help to you.
