Dimplex night storer, how does it work?

Hi there, recently moved into a new flat that has a Dimplex XL night storer heater. it's on the wall, turned on and ready to go, but how do we get a descent heat out of it? there's two dials. imput (1-9) and a boost (early-late-none) it's 5.30pm and my family are getting pretty cold, it's been turned on for a few days now and we've had a hit and miss success rate with it so far.

thanks for your help.

Are you setting the input to maximum and the boost to late? You do not say what size the heater is in either kilowatts or kilowatt hours eg 2kW or 18kWh. These heaters will tend run out of stored heat in the evening especially in colder weather.

Here is a link to a video that will help you understand the theory of how the Dimplex Storage Heater works. It may be a little newer than the model you have, but it does the same thing.

Hi I have a night store heater model 79168 in my new home and no idea how to use it!! Please help :)


Here is a good article for Dimplex, a storage heater manufacturer, that explains the the theory and how it works. I'm sure you will find it interesting. http://www.dimplex.com/storage_heaters#

Basically, thermal storage heaters heat ceramic bricks during off peak hours (during the night), store the heat to be used during peak hours (during the daylight hours), when electricity is more expensive per kilowatt hour.

Hope this helps you.

Hi I have a Dimplex electric fireplace model# CS3311. I had the Remote Receiver plugged into the wall outlet and the Unit Plug was plugged into the side of the Remote Receiver, just like it says to do in...


Lisa, apparently there was an electrical overload in the receiver box. I assume this electric stove is new and still under warranty. In which case, armed with your Proof of Purchase, you need to contact Dimplex USA or the retailer you purchased it from.

Hi - I have an old Glen Dimplex CLX (I think is the name) wall heater. The switch for turning on the heater broke 2 days ago. It sounded like a fuse blew. How on earth can I get this fixed?!


Hi,


You say the heater is 'old', so I assume that it's out of its 2 year warranty? Are you referring to the wall-switch or the switch on the heater itself?


The customer service department will be able to give you guidance on finding the problem and resolving it. If you call 0845 600 5111 and have your series number (top left of the unit) and model (CXL) to hand they will be able to help you.


P.S. Please don't try to take the heater apart or remove it from the wall unless you have experience in working on storage heaters, as the unit is VERY heavy!

Dimplex Convector Heater EPX1000 turns off by itself


I have the same problem with 3 of the 5 EPX1000s I have fitted in my flat, although mine don't even warm up. They just immediately turn themselves off. My only conclusion is that they are rubbish. Specifically, the so-called overheat protection doesn't work. Avoid.

Hi,
It may be that the off peak to your house has failed to switch on, possibly due to the off peak time switch in your meter cupboard not working, I suggest you contact your local electricity board and ask them to check your off peak supply
