Dimplex dakota heater is working but flame effect is not its led I think not bulbs.


Says you can turn it on and off? Did you knock the switch?


Can I operate the flame effect on the fire without the heat?
All our Optiflame and Opti-myst fires can be operated on a flame-effect only setting, as can the flickering flame effect on our freestanding bar fires.

Is the flame effect expensive to run?
No, to run the flame effect involves powering light bulbs and a small electric motor and in most cases costs no more than a couple of pence an hour. Some of our fires have LED lamps fitted which are even more energy efficient.

Some have bulbs, some have LED.
Example calculations:
Using UK standard average price of electricity of 14p/kWh (source: Energy Saving Trust Feb 2015)
Optiflame LED flame effect only (eg Danesbury) = 0.1p every hour
Optiflame conventional bulb, effect only (eg Cheriton) = 2p every hour
Opti-myst, flame effect only (eg Oakhurst) = 3p every hour
Opti-V single screen = 0.5p every hour
2kW fan heater, on constantly (no thermostat) = 28p every hour

Optiflame lightbulbs for sale. Remove the coals and check for bulbs.

No visual fire - did the lightbulb burn out?


Yes - Replace bulb per your owner's manual instructions.
Make sure to use the recommended bulb type & wattage to ensure proper flame effect.

Fire was working fine, then flame effect stopped. Heater still works on both settings, but no flame effect. Tried new bulbs, but still no flame effects, any ideas?


If it is not the bulbs, it is often a melted switch or circuit board.

I have 2 Dimplex DS4411 fireplace heaters. One has the fire display, but does not heat. The other has heat, but no fire display. How do I fix it?


The fire display is a simple replacement of the light bulbs that produce the effect.
The heater issue could be a bad temp sensor, or a bad heater.

How to replace fire bulb for Dimplex HTN20


I wanted an answer to this too. It was hard to find, but here we go.
Get hold of a torch, and look closely at the decorative surround at the bottom of the fire. There are two screws hidden in there, on each side! See below:

Unscrew these, and you can take the front off, and get at the bulbs.

For information, the fire takes two screw in bulbs, described as 240V – 60W E14 SES Clear Candle Lamps.
Hope this helps.

Motor in dimplex fire/heater not turning


Hello. It could be possible that a piece or some of the foil that gives the flame effect has fallen down on the motor, that creates the heat. This could be causing the noise. I would not think this is an electrics problem.

I would ensure the electric fire is disconnected from any power supply and either open the heater myself or get a electrical specialist to have a look. Then you will see exactly what is happening. A piece of foil may be visible which is catching the motor.

If you decide to tackle the problem yourself write down how to put the heater back together as you take each part out. These parts would be covers etc. It can easily get confusing. That is important.
