SOURCE: please help me to get the manual. dimplex

Dimplex products are typically sold at most Home Depot and professional electrical supply houses. However, they rarely will have all the literature for those products in their stores.

Dimplex once provided an online list for all their heaters and thermostats, but no longer have the product manuals available on their website for customer download. They make both 120V-AC and 240V-AC versions and several different models, so I can't safely provide you with the wiring connections, since each installation is different and depends on the type of thermostat and heater(s) being utilized.

So now that I've given you the bad news, let's move onto the good news!Dimplex now uses an online request form for customers to get manual and literature on all their products. They'll send you the manual for your Dimplex product free, once you submint the request.

Here's the link to the request form for you to fill out and submit, just have your model number handy and you should be all set.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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.

I have exactly the same issue you describe, with a Dimplex EPX1000.
Did you manage to fix it or bought a new one? If so, which did you get?

Print Here is how to do it,if it does'nt fit right make sure you have the right thermostat.


3.5L Engine


CAUTION Never remove pressure cap with the system hot and under pressure because serious burns from coolant can occur.

  1. Disconnect negative cable from remote jumper terminal.
  2. Drain cooling system.
  3. Disconnect radiator upper hose from thermostat housing.
  4. Remove thermostat housing bolts.
  5. Remove housing, thermostat, and gasket.

  6. Clean gasket sealing surfaces.

To install:
  1. Install thermostat and gasket into thermostat housing. For ease of installation, install bolts in housing for thermostat and gasket retention.
  2. Install thermostat and housing to the intake manifold. Tighten the bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
  3. Connect radiator hoses and install hose clamp.
  4. Refill cooling system.
  5. Connect negative cable to remote jumper terminal

I want to buy form Costco a Sylvania Convector 2000 watts with built-in thermostat. I already have a wall electronic programmable thermostat.can I install this convector anyway and not plug the built-in...


No, you will only be able to use the heater's Thermostat.The programmable wall thermostat you already have is either an 18 volt or 24 volt thermostat. It won't work with a portable electric heater.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

How does the thermostat go in. Tip up or down?


Thermostat - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

WARNING Most cooling system hoses use "constant tension" hose clamps. When removing or installing, use a tool designed for servicing this type of clamp. The clamps are stamped with a letter or number on the tongue. If replacement is necessary, use only an OEM clamp with a matching ID.
CAUTION Always wear safety glasses when servicing contact tension clamps.
  1. Locate the thermostat. This is located in a housing on the engine side of the upper radiator hose for all engines except the 4.7L. On the 4.7L engine, the thermostat is located on the engine side of the lower radiator hose.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable (both batteries on diesels).
  3. Drain the engine coolant from the block until the level is below the thermostat.
  4. On V-10 engines, remove the support rod.
  5. On most V-6 and V-8 models, the alternator must be removed or repositioned for access to the thermostat housing.
  6. Remove the radiator hose from the thermostat housing.
  7. Disconnect any sensors fitted to the thermostat housing.
  8. Remove the retaining bolts from the thermostat housing. Note the lengths and location of each bolt for ease of installation.
  9. Remove the thermostat housing, thermostat, and gasket, if fitted.
  10. Note the relative positions of all components, especially gaskets and seals. Note the orientation of the thermostat in the housing.
To install:
  1. Be sure the new thermostat is the correct one for your engine.
  2. On V-10 engines, note that there is a rubber lip-type seal with a metal shoulder pressed into the intake manifold beneath the thermostat. The thermostat should fit snugly in the seal.
  3. Clean the gasket or seal mating surfaces.
  4. Paper gaskets must be replaced.
  5. Install the thermostat, gasket or seals.
  6. Install the thermostat housing on the engine.
NOTE The thermostat housing may have the word FRONT on it (3.9L, 5.2L, 5.9L); this goes towards the front of the vehicle.
  1. Be sure all components are properly seated before tightening.
  2. Tighten the housing bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm). Fasteners should be tightened evenly to avoid leaks or damage.
  3. Reinstall the radiator hose onto the housing.
NOTE Ensure that you have secured the system drain plug(s) before refilling with coolant.
  1. Refill the radiator with a proper coolant mixture.
  2. Connect the negative battery cable(s).
  3. Start the engine and bleed the cooling system. Refer to "GENERAL INFORMATION AND MAINTENANCE."
  4. Ensure that the thermostat is operational (by checking the upper radiator hose for warmth), and that there are no leaks.

How easy is it to replace the thermostat


Chrysler Full-Size Trucks 1997-2000 Repair Guide
Thermostat - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

CAUTION NEVER open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Avoid physical contact with the coolant. Wear protective clothing and eye protection. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Clean up spills as soon as possible. Coolant can be reused as long as it is reasonably clean and free of debris. If it appears contaminated or is more than one or two years old, it should be replaced.
WARNING Most cooling system hoses use "constant tension" hose clamps. When removing or installing, use a tool designed for servicing this type of clamp. The clamps are stamped with a letter or number on the tongue. If replacement is necessary, use only an OEM clamp with a matching ID.
CAUTION Always wear safety glasses when servicing contact tension clamps.

A garage said it would cost $500.00 to replace the t-stat do you know why?


I'll do it for $250.00!!!! The thermostat is less than $20....and to replentish the radiator fluid....less than $20.00

It is pretty simply except for the mess of the radiator fluid....here is all the steps to do it yourself:

Removal & Installation
  1. Drain the cooling system.
  2. Remove the air intake system.
  3. Disconnect the lower radiator hose. Matchmark the hose clamps before removing to ensure proper installation.
  4. Unbolt the thermostat housing and remove the thermostat.
To install:
  1. Install the thermostat so that the jiggle valve is facing straight up and is aligned with the mark on the thermostat case as shown in the accompanying figure.

    NOTE Make sure that no oil sticks to the rubber ring of the thermostat. Also, make sure not to fold or scratch the ring when inserting the thermostat.

  2. Position the water inlet or outlet fitting, then secure using the retaining bolt(s). For 2.4L engines, tighten the bolt to 109 inch lbs. (13 Nm). Tighten the bolts to 13 ft. lbs. (19 Nm) for 3.0L engines.
  3. Insert the radiator upper or lower hose as far as the projection of the water outlet or inlet fitting.
  4. Align the mating marks on the radiator hose and hose clamp, then connect the radiator hose.
  5. Install the air intake system.
  6. Refill the cooling system to the correct level.
  7. Start the engine and check for leaks.
