SOURCE: electric furnace/heater pump/fan unit won't shut off

There are dip switches on the main board.. When you remove the lower panel on the air handler there are instructions to where the dip switches should be for your units fan control. if the switches are in the correct configuration.. The Thermostat may be malfunctioning or not wired properly. and last.. and most expensive.. the motherboard may also be failing.

SOURCE: motor in dimplex fire/heater not turning

Hello. It could be possible that a piece or some of the foil that gives the flame effect has fallen down on the motor, that creates the heat. This could be causing the noise. I would not think this is an electrics problem.

I would ensure the electric fire is disconnected from any power supply and either open the heater myself or get a electrical specialist to have a look. Then you will see exactly what is happening. A piece of foil may be visible which is catching the motor.

If you decide to tackle the problem yourself write down how to put the heater back together as you take each part out. These parts would be covers etc. It can easily get confusing. That is important.

SOURCE: Electric Heater won't turn on, thermostat clicks

If you flip the fan to on and it doesn't run then you may have a problem with the fan motor or possibly a capacitor if it has one. I'm not familiar with the Brant heaters. I usually work on Monitor and Toyostove heaters.

I have a Dimplex Heater model no DS5629BR Can't get any heat I have unpluged it & and still can't get any heat. Dont see anything in manual about thermostat being bad or changing it all it said w


Have an electrician check it out.
The heating comes from coils of wire which glow red heat. Air from the fan passes over these coils and keep them from burning out.

If the unit has overheated, it is very likely that one of the coils has burned out and there is no electrical circuit, hence no heat.

An electrical repair shop will be able to verify this for you and fit replacement coils.

Fan heater blower on dimplex cadogan CGN 20 not working properly0 optimyst electric stove


Take it out and see if the fan wil turn by hand. It may have somethng obstructing it. The clicking is the motor overload. It wil burn out if it continues to keep clicking.

Dimplex club heater flicks on/off either on manual or using remote


It sounds like a dodgy thermostat or thermistor to me. When a thermistor goes wrong it can cause what is known as rapid-cycling in a heater, where the unit will keep switching on and off, on and off repeatedly.

Why does my dimplex model bf8000st fan and heat turn off after 2 or 3 minutes? the flame lights keep working, just no fan or heat.


"Resetting the Temperature Cutoff Switch

This unit is equipped with a thermostat which controls the temperature
of the room by turning the heater on and off. The heater is protected
with a safety device to prevent overheating. Should the heater
overheat, an automatic cut out will turn the heater off and it will not
come back on without being reset. It can be reset by switching the
Main On/Off Switch to off and waiting five (5) minutes before switching
the unit back on."

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...


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.

ELECTRIC FIREPLACE ONLY 1+ YEARS OLD HEAT STOPPED WORKING ONLY?


The heater will not work if either the thermostat or blower are not working. (or the heater element is bad). Most of the time with these electric heaters, it's the thermostat.
