Question about Dimplex DS5603 Heater

1 Answer

Dimplex DS5804 (similar to DS5603) turns on, but no fan to push heat.

It's out of warranty, so I took the back off to see if I could find a fuse to change and no luck. Can't get the back all the way off due to some of the connections, and I can't tell where, if anywhere I can detach them. Might it be a fuse, and if so; where can I find it?

    I found a handy link in a post from Fire876 and apparently there's no fuse to be found. That said, how do I know if it's the thermostat that needs to be replaced or the entire heater assembly (or otherwise)?

    to get off the back, remove both back legs then lover back as far as you can then flex it like trying to almost bend it and it will pop out. I am trying to figure why the heater will not work anymore. I cannot find a listing for parts anywhere

A simple way to check the thermostat is to by-pass it. remove the wires from it, and connect them together. If the heat works after that, Its a no brain-er. The thermostat is just an adjustable temperature controlled switch.

How do I replace bulbs on model DS5603 Mod G electric fireplace


Do you need to replace the upper or lower light bulbs?

For both, first open the door of the fireplace. For the upper light, locate the upper bulb bracket (above the door). Bend the bracket down. Unscrew the old bulb and replace it with 7 W clear chandelier or candelabra bulb with an E12 base. Bend the bracket back up to its original position. Close the door, if only the upper bulb is out.

You will need a Phillips blade screwdriver to replace lower bulbs. Open the door (if it wasn't already open). Locate the screw that holds the log set in the center of the ember bed. Remove that screw and the log set. Locate the bulbs that are behind the log set and determine if one or both bulbs need to be replaced. Unscrew the bulb(s) to be replaced. Screw in the replacement 60 W clear chandelier or candelabra bulb with the E12 base. Replace the log set and press firmly against the glass. Replace the screw that holds the log set. Close the fireplace door.

The procedure to replace the bulbs is on page 4 of the service manual. It is also on pages 10-11 of the Owner's Manual. The documentation is available from Dimplex: http://www.dimplex.com/en/customer_support/technical_and_troubleshooting . The direct link to the service manual is http://www.dimplex.com/cms/publications/7400650000R04.pdf . The Owner's manual is here: http://www.dimplex.com/cms/publications/7206570100R09.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I have a Rheem Classic Super Quiet 80 gas furnace (for heat). The fan stops when the "heat" turns on.


Any time I ever had trouble,first thing to suspect is the thermostat.
They lose contact sometimes and sometimes you tap the face and they work til next glitch.
If the thermostat has some years on it,go ahead and replace it.
Can't you just leave the heat and fan in auto? That would be best,I think. don-ohio

Rinnai ex 38 flashing code 99. I took the vent apart and there is no blockage. Unit has only been installed one month.


If it is only one month old doesn't do anything but call for warranty serving. ANY attempt to repair this will void the warranty.

Electric Furnace stopped running


You have one of two problems. Either the capacitor for the motor has failed or the motor has failed. I would turn off the power to the unit and see if you can locate the capacitor and remove it. An ac supply or electrical supply house can match up the capacitor. This is relatively inexpensive. Otherwise you will need a new motor.

My termost set to a/c, the fan auto, blow very well, but when I switch to heat and the fan auto, doesn't work, but if I put fan on work why?


the thermostat says to call for heat buildup in the work if its not cold enough the thermostat won't call for heat and I won't go on but when it gets cold and the thermostat set to the temperature you want or hire someone that doesn't cycle

I have a Kenmore dehumidifier 58053701300. It worked fine for maybe five summers, but I couldn't get it going this past June. It just would not turn on. I checked the outlets. No problem. No...


I will start to dig into this one and see what I can find as far as measurments for voltage. In the mean time, you said the bucket was ok, but did you check to see if the shut off float switch is operating and moving freely and not bound up some how. It should also have a slight clicking sound as the switch is made and unmade.
