OPERATION
WARNING: This electric firebox must be properly installed before it is used.
This firebox operates with Comfort$averTM technology, which
automatically adjusts the fan speed and heater wattage to
safely and precisely match the requirements of the room
based on the thermostat setting. The heater operates such
that once the room reaches the set point, the fan and heater
will continuously run at a low level, to maintain the desired
room temperature. If the temperature in the room rises significantly, i.e. sun coming through a window or a central furnace
turns on, the heater and fan will turn off and periodically turn
back on to circulate the air around the unit, until the room
temperature drops and requires the heater to be constantly
on again.
! NOTE: The unit is designed so that the fan will run continuously while the heater is on.
! NOTE: The element retains heat after shutdown, there
is a built in cool down period of 1 minute before the fan shuts
off completely.
gWaveTM Controls
The fireplace can be operated by a simple “wave” in-front of
the unit. By waving your hand vertically approximately 4 in.
(102 mm) in-front of the gWaveTM sensor in the upper right
hand corner of the unit, the unit and different control functions
can be activated. This is also indicated by the LED light turning
green.
There is a Gesture On/Off button located below the LED
pilot light which can be used to turn this feature On or Off.
It is recommended that a straightened paperclip be used to
press the button through the small hole. When the gWaveTM
controls are turned off, the green light will flash 4 times
before turning off and it will remain solid green when the
gWaveTM controls are active.
! NOTE: The unit is programmed to have a built in demonstration mode to exhibit all of the functions of the unit in a 95
second period of time. This can be activated by holding your
hand in front of the gWaveTM sensor for 7 seconds. When the
unit has gone through the demonstration mode once it will
return to the previous operation.
Remote Operation
The fireplace is supplied with an IR multifunction remote
control.
! NOTE: To operate correctly, the remote control must
be pointed towards the front of the unit.
Controls

• The unit will turn on with the same functions that it was set
to when it was turned Off and the intake temperature will be
indicated on the On Screen Display.
! NOTE: When any button is pressed the intake temperature will be displayed on the On Screen Display for 5
seconds.

→ Adjusted by repeatedly pressing the corresponding button on the remote.*
• Indicated by setpoint temperature on the Floating Display™ decreasing and the speed of the fan decreasing to
reduce the amount of heat being projected into the room.**
5.
Temperature Up: Increases the heat output.
→ Adjusted by repeatedly pressing the corresponding button on the remote.*
• Indicated by the setpoint on the Floating Display™ increasing and the speed of the fan increasing to increase
the amount of heat being projected into the room.
* The first time the button is pressed the current temperature set point will be displayed for 5 seconds.
** The temperature can be adjusted from 5 °C to 30 °C (41

Resetting the Temperature Cutoff Switch
Should the heater overheat, an automatic cut out will turn
the fireplace off and it will not come back on without being
reset. It can be reset by unplugging the unit and waiting 15
minutes before plugging the unit back in.
Once power is restored the unit will start to reset itself.
During this process you will hear repeated beeps and the
Floating Display™ may turn on and off.
CAUTION: If you need to continuously reset the heater,
disconnect power and call Dimplex customer service at
1-888-DIMPLEX (1-888-346-7539).
Battery Replacement (Figure 3)
To replace the battery:
1. Slide battery cover open on the back of the remote
control.
2. Install one 3V (CR 2032) battery in the battery holder.
3. Close the battery cover.
Battery must be recycled or disposed of properly.
Check with your Local Authority or Retailer for recycling advice in your area.
MAINTENANCE
WARNING: Disconnect power before attempting any
maintenance or cleaning to reduce the risk of fire, electric
shock or damage to persons.
CAUTION: Allow adequate time for the element and
body casing to cool before attempting to clean the unit.
It is suggested that the heater be inspected regularly, for
cleanliness of the fan exhaust and intake grille, to ensure
optimal performance is maintained. The grille can be
cleaned by vacuuming off all dust and dirt.
Glass Cleaning
The front glass is cleaned in the factory during the assembly operation. During shipment, installation, handling,
etc., the front glass may collect dust particles, these can be
removed by dusting lightly with a clean dry cloth.
To remove fingerprints or other marks, the glass can be
cleaned with a damp cloth. The glass should be completely dried with a lint free cloth to prevent water spots. To
prevent scratching, do not use abrasive cleaners or spray
liquids on the glass surface.
Fireplace Surface Cleaning
To remove fingerprints or other marks, the exterior finish
can be cleaned with a damp cloth with a mild detergent.
The surface should be completely dried with a lint free cloth
to prevent water spots.
Servicing
Except for installation and cleaning described in this manual, an authorized service representative should perform any
other servicing.
