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.

The bulbs called for (60W) do get VERY hot...
(but the owners manual I found indicate a 60W
USA style lamp... (appeared to be a E16 (Edison)).

Euro lamps have higher voltage
(and FRANKLY speaking) better heat tolerance...

If you are terribly in love with this unit.. I would first
suggest calling the "SUPPORT" to see if their
"ENGINEERING" already has a solution...

ELSE you should be looking for a couple CERAMIC
(like glazed porcelain) sockets and prepare to
FIELD ENGINEER a proper/safe remedy...

My best suggestion...
Call support
Dimplex Obsidian OBS20 User Manual Page 9

Then contact your favorite hardware... (or LAMPS +)
and ASK the MOST COMMON clear candelabra bulb socket
That sports a CERAMIC type socket... E12 or E14 ...

When I was "converting" a Spanish chandelier..
I used GLAZED Porcelain "EDISON twelves" (E12).
> Keyless Porcelain Adjustable Candelabra Candle Socket

FINELED E12 Mini Candelabra Screw ceramic lampholder socket with 10 inch...

Sunlite 60CFC 32 12PK Candelabra E12 Base Flame Tip 60W Incandescent...

Hope this helps

When i changed the bulbson my dimplex optimyst charlotte crt 20 br with origianal bulbs from dimplexthey dont work yet the power supply isworking

I had the same problem. It turned out to be the lamp holders themselves which were the problem. Just take out the single screw just in front of the lamp holder assembly and the lamp holder unit comes out. Remove the main lamp holder assembly and turn it over. You will see the four lamp holder wires all go to two main terminals with a positive and negative connector on each. You need to undo the nuts holding the main supply cables and lamp holder wires and remove the cables noting where they came from for easy replacement. If you cut off the wire on the defective units and unscrew the two retaining screws holding each lamp holder they can be removed. You can order on line replacement holders from Amazon and with a little bit of simple soldering and using new wire connectors for the end connectors on the new lamp holder wires can be easily fitted. I have two of these fires and both have had the same fault after about 12 months use, obviously a fault with the holders as they dont last that long and need replaced.

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.

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.

Can I change my Dimplex SHB20 from coal to logs

Probably not. The flame configuration is different from one model to another, as is the coal and log holder. But, if you'd like to confirm this Contact Dimplex USA Customer Support 800-668-6663 or their technical Specialist 888-346-7539.

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

Change bulb on dimplex fire not sure of make and model

If it's a fireplace that sets inside a free standing cabinet mantle, you access the bulbs by removing the glass on the front (actually, it''s plexiglass). Then remove the logs and the glowing ember bed (It lifts out). Now you can see and have access to the bulbs to change them.

It it's wood stove look-a-like unit, you can access the bulbs by removing the rectangular panel on the back, near the bottom of the of the unit. Removal of that panel gives you access to the bulbs.

Hope this helps to answer your question.

How to change bulbs on Dimplex HTN 20

If you have a compact fireplace in a cabinet mantle, you will need to remove the front Plexiglas and frame from the front of the firebox. Remove the logs, then the 1- piece ember bed (it just lifts out). This will give you access to the light bulbs.

If you what looks like an old wood stove, you access then from the rear of the unit. Remove the bottom access panel by unscrewing the 4 screws that hold it in place. You can then reach the light bulbs to change them.

In both cases, the replacement bulbs are small base chandelier bulbs.

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

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.
