Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

We have a Dimplex "Oil Filled Column Radiator" Model OFC2411TI It has been turned off (and unplugged) all summer and now that we have turned it on, the Electronic Timer Operation panel does not light up. The neon at the top is glowing indicating the power is on, but even when the machine was turned on for 16 hours, no heat was produced. Thanks in anticipation ****

    Same ~ switched on and a dim light on the electronic timer but even hitting reset won't turn it on, there doesn't seem to be anyway to get the cover off to change the battery, does anyone know how to do this or override the electronic timer so the heater works manually?

I had the same problem. The heater did not work in heating mode. However it was OK in air-conditioning mode. The operation light and the timer light blink twice and then the operation light blinks for 5 times followed by few seconds non blinking, then the cycle repeats again. I have read on the internet that you better unplug the power cord and then plug it again so that the heater re-sets itself. My only problem was that my heater is directly plugged to the power with no visible plug. So I went to the main distribution board and put off the power for about 20 seconds for the whole home. HOORAY!! The heater worked after that.

You have not specified the make nor model. Five flashes can indicate a blocked drainpan and drainpipe which needs cleaning.

Try setting the Unit to run full out, set unit at 66* it maybe the lights flash to let you know the save ( power) is on ?. Otherwise look for the manual and troubleshooter page .

We have a new OFC2400TIF heater. We have set a program which worked for a day. Now the heater will not work on either manual or auto. The display lights are all on, the screen indicates that the heater is...

The heater may need to reset itself. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the heater from the wall outlet. Wait 12 - 15 minutes and plug the heater back in. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON and set the controls as you normally would. Hopefully, that 12 - 15 minute timeout allowed the heater to reset itself. If this continues to occur, contact Dimplex Technical Service at

Hope this helps you to further troubleshoot and solve the problem.

A leak has developed on my oil filled Dimplex rad is there any way to fix this thanks

Sadly, the short answer is "No, not safely". Because, repairing it won't solve the problem of why it started leaking in the first place.

Sorry, I wish I had better news for you.

The oil filled radiator is leaking oil when it is on.

Turn it off and if it is not under warranty dispose of properly. These are sealed units and there is no way to refill it. They should never leak, and when they do that is because of a bad weld or rusted metal condition. Sorry this is probably not the solution you want, if it is under warranty return it to where ever you purchased it. It leaks when it is warm because the oil gets hot and thins down to about the viscosity of water.

My oil filled radiator trips the mains after a few

Try changing circuits (plug into one not protected by the same breaker.)
While the heater element can fail in your heater, I have had to replace several breakers after only a few years use after they became overly sensitive.

I have an oil column heater about two years old, this year it is emitting an adour, is this normal , does the oil get old?

You need to give this heater a good clean with a mild detergent and cloth with it unplugged let it dry for a few hours then try it again. The oil is sealed inside inturn you can't smell this unless it's leaking.
