Question about Dimplex DS5598 Mid-Size Heater

1 Answer

Dimplex DS5598 Need to take the heater apart to change the fan motor. Can't figure a good way to take it apart. Took the two feet off, slid the metal back part way, but it does not come all the way apart. Took the logs out, seems no way to get to the heat box. What am I missing?

    Thanks so much for your help. The heater assembly did not look like it would come out.

Hello,
Disconnect power to unit before attempting to repair unit.
1.With the front door closed,gently place the stove, door side up on a flat surface.
2.Remove the heater assembly retaining screws located on the bottom of the stove with a screwdriver.
3.Lower the heater assembly off of the bottom of the stove being careful not to damage any of the wiring.

My Dimplex DS5598 heater lights up and the heater works fine but the flames no longer flicker to look like real flames. Does it have a fan or something? I have the Practical User's Guide but it doesn't...


It sounds like a problem with the flame motor.
I've attached a link to the manufacturer's website. They may be able to assist you with additional information upon request.

No Heat or fan on model DS4411 Or 6901050100


I had the same problem. One or more of the switches for the stove have melted and broken. You need to call Dimplex and request new switches. They should ship you out a 3 pack for free, and the pack will come with easy instructions for removing the bottom panel and replacing the switches.

Look at page 4. If this is not it, you would have to see if you are getting power off the circuit board to the heater, should be 120VAC. If not the board is bad. If you do get power, check the thermostat - if it's good (power going thru it) then the heater element is bad.

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.
