TO REPLACE LIGHT BULBS
1. Open the steel curtains (remove glass doors if applicable).
2. Remove the log grate retaining screws and remove the log grate.
3. Pull the rear edge of the log set forward by grasping the ember bed by the sides
(handle the log set only by the ember bed and not the logs) and pulling firmly
until the rear tab pops out from under the back ledge, then lift out.
4. Examine to determine which bulbs require replacement.
5. Unscrew bulb counter clockwise.
6. Insert new bulb screwing clockwise.
7. Replace the log set by inserting the front edge, pushing the back down until the
rear tab snaps under the back ledge and the logs are resting against the mirror.

Do the rest of the functions of the fireplace work? If so, turn the Master On/Off Switch to OFF and plug the unit for 12 to 15 minutes. After the time has elapsed, plug the unit back it and turn the Master On/Off Switch to ON. Then turn on the flame function switch. Hopefully, that timeout allowed the unit to reset itself and the flame function is now working. If it isn't, either the flame function switch is faulty or the circuity to the light bulbs and the ro-tater motor that turns the shaft, that he bulbs are attached to, has failed. Without knowing how old the unit is and how much use it's had, it's hard to pin down one thing that is causing the problem. If it's any consolation, you are not alone. Hundreds of these electric fireplaces (all makes & models) fail every year.

If all else fails, contact Dimplex USA, Technical Service at 888-346-7539.

Hope this helped to solve your problem.

SOURCE: replacing bulb in dimplex electric

To replace the bulbs, your will need to remove the plexiglass front, then remove the logs and set them off to side where they won't get stepped on. Then lift up the plastic simulated ember bed. You now have access to the light bulbs. The required bulbs are 60 watt small base chandelier bulbs.

Hope this helped you, Margo. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Dimplex dakota heater is working but flame effect is not its led I think not bulbs.


Says you can turn it on and off? Did you knock the switch?


Can I operate the flame effect on the fire without the heat?
All our Optiflame and Opti-myst fires can be operated on a flame-effect only setting, as can the flickering flame effect on our freestanding bar fires.

Is the flame effect expensive to run?
No, to run the flame effect involves powering light bulbs and a small electric motor and in most cases costs no more than a couple of pence an hour. Some of our fires have LED lamps fitted which are even more energy efficient.

Some have bulbs, some have LED.
Example calculations:
Using UK standard average price of electricity of 14p/kWh (source: Energy Saving Trust Feb 2015)
Optiflame LED flame effect only (eg Danesbury) = 0.1p every hour
Optiflame conventional bulb, effect only (eg Cheriton) = 2p every hour
Opti-myst, flame effect only (eg Oakhurst) = 3p every hour
Opti-V single screen = 0.5p every hour
2kW fan heater, on constantly (no thermostat) = 28p every hour

Optiflame lightbulbs for sale. Remove the coals and check for bulbs.

I have 2 Dimplex DS4411 fireplace heaters. One has the fire display, but does not heat. The other has heat, but no fire display. How do I fix it?


The fire display is a simple replacement of the light bulbs that produce the effect.
The heater issue could be a bad temp sensor, or a bad heater.

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.

Model dlb503 works when set at half heat , but when set at full heat it cuts off after a few minutes, even when room is cold


i've experienced the rheostat failing in other brands of electric fireplaces. the rheostat is the component that varies the voltage, thus the power. some are replaceable by generics available at big box or hardware stores. if this is your problem, it will eventually also kick off while on low.

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.
