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.

How do you change the light bulb in a dimplex gem 20 heater?


Hi, First ALWAYS disconnet from the mains!
To change the bulb on your Dimplex you'll firstly need to remove the log effect, there are 2 small black head pozi type screws hidden at the front one on the left and one on right which your bulbs are under situated in their holders (as there are 2 of them) they are mini screw types as opposed to the standard baynot type replace the defective bulbs with like for like once fitted reconnect the mains and try if working, JOB DONE! Page 14 on the link shows exactly how to do it Regards Steve.

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.

Flame effect dimmed on my dimplex stockbridge stove


You most likely have a couple light bulbs burned out. Refer to your owner's manual on how to access the bulb area, and replace with the appropriate watt bulbs. Most Dimplex stoves use standard incandescent 60w bulbs, a few use halogen. This is often annual maintenance.
If you can't find your manual, you can request one to be emailed to you from Dimplex, their service line is:

Changing bulb in dimplex cht20 fire


Yes this is very easy on the cheriton range of fires.... remove the coal, then remove two screws from the front of the coal holder... the whole brass coal holder will pull away from the machine. The bulbs (two of them) are located directly behind this, just behind the rotisserie flame effect. The flame effect can be pulled out of its holder to access the bulbs.

Light and flame effect not coming on dimplex springborne electric stove.


The light bulbs that provide the flame effect, may have burned out. You can access the bulbs by remove a rectangular access panel on the back of the stove, just above the bottom edge of the stove. Be sure to turn the unit OFF and unplug it before attempting the bulb replacement. The bulb type is 60 watt, small base, clear chandelier bulb.

I hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

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.
