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?

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.

If you have opened the glass door you will see 2 switches and a rotating dial, thermostat. ! switch is heat, the 2nd is the flame effect. it is not serviceable to a consumer unless professionally trained.
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.

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.
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.
