No flame. I fired up my spacehearter and no electric flame. Is there a way to fix this? The back has only 2 screws on it. Is there bulbs in the back,or something like that.

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.

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.

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.

I have a wall mounted electric fire with flame option,I have changed the bulb but cannot get the flame effect to work. The falme wheel is turning but no light effect.

have you checked fuse to bulb some electric heaters have a fuse for bulbs and fans so it might be a small inline fuse that you need to change

Flame on electralog stove not working stove is still working

Rich's answer works for the heater problem, but not the light. My unit's heater quit working and I noticed the vents were clogged with dust. I vaccumed the front and back vents out with the unit unplugged and this fixed that problem. But the light/fire burn out is a different problem. I suspect it is burnt out bulbs, as I have had this unit for multiple years.

Flame on my electric Pyromaster is standing still is there a bulb

basically, on the bottom of the fireplace, there are 2 screws on the sides, 3 on the back, take them off, lift bottom (it wont come off, so be careful not to bend it) there are 3 christmas light type bulbs, you can find them at any hardware store. Just replace them. Problem solved.

If the flame is standing still, i assume the motor is burnt out. or the belt is off.
