Question about Dimplex DS5603 Heater

1 Answer

Hi, I don't understand how the early and late boost works on the storage heater. Someone told me I should turn the output switch off when I am at work during the day, then turn the output control up when I get home. But hardly any heat comes out!!! When should the early and late boost be used?

Output switch is the one that says Cool-Off-Heat. Turn this offwhen you aren't home.
Output control is the thermostat. If you want to heat the room turn up the thermostat to the desired heat after putting the output switch on heat. It will take a few minutes for the heater to get hot. Early boost would be if you want immediate higher blower speed to speed up keep the heated air from being too hot and late boost will hold off the fan until the heater is higher in temp and the air temp discharged will be hotter.

I moved into a flat with newlec NLSH24AN HEATER N NO INSTRUCTION. ..HELP


Hi Sharon,
This should be relatively easy.
You have storage heaters that only take in the hear during cheap rate electricity (at times you cannot change - typically between 00:00 and 07:00 but times vary - ask your electricity supplier).
.
The controls of an electric storage heater normally consist of two
dials to be found under a flap on the heater.

The input dial, sometimes known as the charge or overnight dial.
This control sets the amount of heat to be stored during the night.
It is best to be set on a seasonal basis: medium for
autumn/spring, high for winter.
If you find that you run out of heat before the end of the day,
and the Input is not on maximum, turn it up to store extra for the
following day.

The Output Dial sometimes known as the room temperature or boost dial.
This dial controls the amount of warm air or convected heat given out during the day. It opens and closes.

I seem to snore a lot lately even though I am not overweight and don't even drink alcohol. Someone told me that changing your sleeping position can help. Should I avoid sleeping on my back?


When you sleep on your back, your tongue falls
backwards into your throat which narrows the airways and can lead to snoring.




Sleeping on your side is more likely to free up the
airways and reduce the likelihood of snoring.




I did once read that if people keep turning back onto
their side, they can sew something uncomfortable like a small tennis ball into
the back of their pajamas so that they feel a lump whenever they try and move
onto their back - but I\'m not sure if this would actually work.

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.

Hello!

Your fridge might be suffering from a bubble, but is unlikely. I am more suspicious that insects (dirt daubers) have built nests on the cooling fins (at the upper rear) and air flow through the fins is being blocked.

Try switching your fridge to LP mode for a day, and see if your cooling performance increases. If so, take a look at the heater, try checking its resistance. Resistance should measure 44 ohms, +/- 10%. While you are checking for insects, also take a look around the burner area of the fridge. You are looking for a white or yellow residue. This would be evidence of a coolant leak, and the cooling unit would need to be replaced.

Given the time of year, air conditioners are being used heavily, including those in trailers. If you are using your air conditioner, and trying to use the fridge as well, make sure that your electrical cord is large enough. You want to use as short of an extension cord as possible, with as heavy gauge as possible (10ga minimum). If you are using an extension cord, or are plugged into an outlet that can't meet the current demands, that will cause voltage to drop. As voltage drops, heater (in the fridge) drops with it. If the output drops too low, there will not be enough heat from the heater to power the absorption cycle for the fridge.

This question has already been asked, but I am still unsure .I own a flat with a Dimplex night store heater. It has two dials. One is 'Room Temp Boost' and the other is 'Input'. 'Input' is obviously the...


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

The principle of electric storage heaters is that they take in electricity at night through a central time switch (normally owned by the electricity supply company and usually not controllable by the user).

There should then be a main switch/ fuse box to control the heater circiuts, check for such a box and that it is switched on (This would normally be sited near the electricity meter).

There should be an isolator switch next to each heater but from what you say this is not the case.

There should be some controls on each storage heater marked INPUT with a dial from 1 to 6 or similar then another marked OUTPUT or BOOST.

When you have ascertained the fuse box is on and the heater controls are set to maximum you then have to wait overnight for the heaters to warm up.

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.
