The model you have uses a different set of bulbs, than Dimplex's other models. So, you'll need to Contact Dimplex USA, Technical Service Dept @ 888-346-7539. I'm sure they can help you.

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.

Fire was working fine, then flame effect stopped. Heater still works on both settings, but no flame effect. Tried new bulbs, but still no flame effects, any ideas?


If it is not the bulbs, it is often a melted switch or circuit board.

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.

When i changed the bulbson my dimplex optimyst charlotte crt 20 br with origianal bulbs from dimplexthey dont work yet the power supply isworking


I had the same problem. It turned out to be the lamp holders themselves which were the problem. Just take out the single screw just in front of the lamp holder assembly and the lamp holder unit comes out. Remove the main lamp holder assembly and turn it over. You will see the four lamp holder wires all go to two main terminals with a positive and negative connector on each. You need to undo the nuts holding the main supply cables and lamp holder wires and remove the cables noting where they came from for easy replacement. If you cut off the wire on the defective units and unscrew the two retaining screws holding each lamp holder they can be removed. You can order on line replacement holders from Amazon and with a little bit of simple soldering and using new wire connectors for the end connectors on the new lamp holder wires can be easily fitted. I have two of these fires and both have had the same fault after about 12 months use, obviously a fault with the holders as they dont last that long and need replaced.

How do I change the bulb in my dimplex wynford inset fire?


On the back of the cabinet, about 3" to 4" up from the bottom, you should see a removable rectangular panel. Removing it, will give you access to the bulbs. Which are 60 watt, small base chandelier bulbs.
Turn the unit OFF & Unplug it, before removing the rear access panel.


Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I need to change the bulb in a dimplex brayford electric fire, how do I get the fake coal plastic off.


The plastic ember bed lifts out with a little effort. To assist you, I have included a link to your Bradford model Owners manual that you can download and print for future reference.

How to change bulbs on Dimplex HTN 20


If you have a compact fireplace in a cabinet mantle, you will need to remove the front Plexiglas and frame from the front of the firebox. Remove the logs, then the 1- piece ember bed (it just lifts out). This will give you access to the light bulbs.

If you what looks like an old wood stove, you access then from the rear of the unit. Remove the bottom access panel by unscrewing the 4 screws that hold it in place. You can then reach the light bulbs to change them.

In both cases, the replacement bulbs are small base chandelier bulbs.

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

How to replace fire bulb for Dimplex HTN20


I wanted an answer to this too. It was hard to find, but here we go.
Get hold of a torch, and look closely at the decorative surround at the bottom of the fire. There are two screws hidden in there, on each side! See below:

Unscrew these, and you can take the front off, and get at the bulbs.

For information, the fire takes two screw in bulbs, described as 240V – 60W E14 SES Clear Candle Lamps.
Hope this helps.
