basic precautions should always
be followed to reduce the risk of
fire, electric shock, and injury to
persons, including the following:
① Read all instructions before
using the electric fireplace.
② This heater is hot when in use.
To avoid burns, do not let bare
skin touch hot surfaces. The trim
around the heater outlet becomes
hot during heater operation. Keep
combustible materials, such
as furniture, pillows, bedding,
papers, clothes, and curtains at
least 3 ft (0.9 m) from the front of
the heater and keep them away
from the sides and rear.
③ Extreme caution is necessary when any heater is used by
or near children or invalids and
whenever the unit is left operating
and unattended.
④ Always unplug the heater when
not in use.
⑤ Do not operate any heater
after it malfunctions. Disconnect
power at the service panel and
have the heater inspected by a
reputable electrician before reusing.

⑥ Do not operate any unit with
a damaged cord or plug, or if the
heater has malfunctioned, or if
the electric fireplace has been
dropped or damaged in any manner, contact Dimplex Technical
Service at 1-888-346-7539.

fit, contact a qualified electrician
to install the proper outlet. Do not
change the plug in any way.

service at 1-888-346-7539.
Maintenance
WARNING: Disconnect power
before attempting any maintenance or cleaning to reduce
the risk of fire, electric shock or

! NOTE: The fireplace should
not be operated with an accumulation of dust or dirt on or in the
unit, as this can cause a build up
of heat and eventual damage.

be inspected regularly, depending
upon conditions and at least at
yearly intervals.

back panel.
To gain access to the bulbs:
1. Remove the silver screw that
secures the access panel to
the firebox as indicated in
Figure 2.
2. Remove and slide out panel.
3. Remove the defective lamp
by unscrewing it as shown in
Figure 3.
