Question about Dimplex DS5603 Heater

Open Question

Dimplex storage heater works intermittently

I have a Dimplex storage heater. It has an ''input'' dial..which I have set to 7-8 (for cold weather) and a ''room boost'' dial which is set to late boost. it works on/off...even though i don't fiddle with the heater. Recently a friend changed my apartment thermostat dial to ''normal'' and it helped for a while............now it has stopped working again.
Is the operation and function of the heater dependant on the atmospheric temperature?? My apartment is still cold. Or am I doing something wrong?
Cheers everyone
P.S unsure of exact type of Dimplex heater...........says CXL n on it though

SOURCE: This question has already been asked, but I am

it does not relate to the time of day it relates to the temp in the room
as you know most heaters do not run continuously, they cycle on ambiant temp.
the boost setting is actually tweeaking that cycle,
you are actually setting the vairence in the temp setting
each modle is slightly differant but

here is an example

9 late boost, might let the temp differential drop as low as 25 degrees
1 early boost might only allow a 2 degree differential

Hi, I have recently moved into a new flat with simplex storage heaters, however the letting agent has no idea how to use them and the landlord is away. They seem to be really old models which you turn on...


Here is a link to a video that will help you understand the theory of how the Dimplex Storage Heater works. It may be a little newer than the model you have, but it does the same thing.

My dimplex night storage heater has stopped working.


...not too sure of your model but all dimplex heaters to my knowledge have an 'overload' cut out built into the system. Ours is more up to date but still goes now and then, problem is you have to get into the electrics and click the reset button, normally near or on the thermostat it's self, could be a small white plastic button, or a piece metal sticking up that needs pressing down to reset...but please before attempting make sure that you TURN OFF THE ELECTRIC / REMOVE THE FUSE/ WHAT EVER IT TAKES TO CUT ANY CHANCE OF AN ELECTRIC SHOCK!!!...because I can and will get you if it can ;-)... if your not a competent electrician please get hold of one !... good luck.

Dimplex night storer, how does it work?


Are you setting the input to maximum and the boost to late? You do not say what size the heater is in either kilowatts or kilowatt hours eg 2kW or 18kWh. These heaters will tend run out of stored heat in the evening especially in colder weather.

Early / Late boost in dimplex storage heater


The output setting if turned off isn't adjusting the temperature in the room automatically if its off,and by turning the output up is like turning up the heat.By turning the output switch on you can let the heater automatically control the heat.Still you need to monitor the adjustments to your liking and then you know how hot it will be when you come back into that room.
