Operation
This three (3) position switch offers the following functions:
(I) Manual mode
When in the “ I ” position, the fireplace bypasses the builtin remote control, the flame effect is turned on and the
electrical supply to the heater is controlled manually using
the Low Heat and High Heat Switches (Figure 1-C and D).
Electric Fireplace Manual Control
The manual controls for the unit are located in the top, right
corner, on the front of the firebox (Figure 1). A switch is in
the On position when the side with the “ I ”, or “ II ” markings
on it is pushed in.
Figure 1

(II) Remote mode
The “ II ” position is for operating the unit with the provided
remote control. When in “ II ” position the unit is operated
with the ON and OFF buttons of the remote control.
B
! NOTE: Remote control operates main power supply. Heat
or
must still be controlled by switches on fireplace.
(O) Off position
All power to all functions are switched off.
Resetting the Temperature Cutoff Switch
Should the fireplace overheat, an automatic cut out will turn
the heater off and it will not come back on without being
reset. It can be reset by switching the Main Power Switch
(Figure 1-A or B) to the Off (“ O ”) position, and waiting five
(5) minutes before switching the unit back on.
CAUTION: If you need to continuously reset the heater,
unplug the unit and call Dimplex North America Limited at
1-888-346-7539 for technical support.
Heat Switches (all models, all MOD levels)
Figure 1-C - Low Heat Switch (“ I ”)
The Low Heat On/Off Switch supplies power to the heater fan
and the heater element. When the switch is in the On (“ I ”)
position the heater operates on Low.
Remote Controls
The following plug-in remote control (Figure 2) is included
with the models and MOD levels specified below:
Used in:
• DFI2309 MODs ~ to B

Figure 1-D - High Heat Switch (“ II ”)
The High Heat Switch supplies power to the heater fan and
the heater element, when the switch is in the On (“ II ”)
position the heater operates on High. The C - Low Heat
Switch must also be in the On position for the high heat
setting to operate.

The remote control has a range of approximately 50 feet
(15.25 m). It does not have to be pointed at the fireplace
and can pass through most obstacles (including walls). It is
supplied with one of 243 independent frequencies to prevent
interference with other units and the frequency designation is
indicated on the back of the remote control.
Replace battery when needed with a 9 volt battery.
The following integrated remote control (Figure 3) is included

control as shown to the right.
To operate: push ON button to turn fireplace on; push OFF
button to turn fireplace off (Figure 3).
! NOTE: Remote control operates main power supply.
Heat must still be controlled by Low Heat and High Heat
switches on fireplace (Figure 1-C & D).
Battery Installation/Replacement
1. Depress tab on the battery cover on the back of the
remote control and remove battery cover (Figure 3).
2. Properly orient and install one (1) 12 Volt (A23) battery
into the remote control.
3. Replace the battery cover.
Remote Initialization
1. From an power off position, place the 3-Position Switch
(Figure 1-B) into the Remote (“ II ”) position.
2. Within 10 seconds of step 1, press the ON button on the
remote control.
This will synchronize the remote control with the receiver
within the fireplace.
! NOTE: You will only have 10 seconds to perform the last
step. If this is not completed within 5-10 seconds, the
procedure will have to be repeated.

firebox (and any other wires disconnected from terminal
block in step i) is connected with wire lead from cutout.
Tighten down on terminal block with small Phillips
screwdriver.
3. Lift the top cover of the firebox up carefully - the heater
assembly is attached to the underside of the top cover.
4. Using side cutters, cut all zip ties that bind wires together
5. Hold the heater assembly in one hand (or have another
person assist), and remove four (4) Phillips screws from
the top cover to release the heater assembly from the top
cover (Figure 7).
WARNING: Improper re-connection of wiring may result
in electric shock, fire, or injury to persons. Ensure that
connections to/from cutout match those of the respective
wiring diagram for the particular model and MOD level
being serviced (pages 7-10).
Cutout Replacement
i) Follow the two (2) wires leading from the cutout and
disconnect them from their respective terminals.
vi) If servicing is complete, follow steps 1-5 in reverse order.
! NOTE: The shorter wire from the cutout has a piggy-
back connection at the heater element as shown in
Figure 8. Disconnect the piggy-back connection as well
as the secondary wire that connects to the blower motor
terminal.
To remove the longer wire from the terminal block, use

ii) Remove the two (2) piggy-back and three (3) single wire
connectors from the heater element and motor, noting
their original locations.
If the firebox was operating prior to servicing allow at least
five (5) minutes for light bulbs and heating element to cool off
to avoid accidental burning of skin.
iii) Remove the two (2) Phillips screws from each of the
two (2) mounting brackets as shown in Figure 7. Do not
discard brackets.
Disconnect power before attempting any maintenance or
cleaning to reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to
persons.
iv) Attach the two (2) mounting brackets to the replacement
heater assembly in the same orientation as in Figure 7,
using two (2) Phillips screws removed in step iii.
Replacement Procedure:
v) Using the single small Phillips screw from step i, attach
the cutout to the replacement heater assembly.
1. Disconnect power and remove firebox from mantel or
existing fireplace.
vi) Attach the piggy-back wire from the cutout as shown in
Figure 8: piggy-back connectors to the lower terminal of
the heater element, then on to the inner-most terminal of
the blower motor.
2. Remove four (4) Phillips screws from the top and rear,
upper edge of the firebox as shown in Figure 4-A. This
will release the top cover from the firebox.
3. Lift the top cover of the firebox up carefully - the heater
assembly is attached to the underside of the top cover.
vii) Attach the last two (2) wires removed in step ii: yellow
wire will run from the high heat switch to the top, frontmost terminal; the grey piggy-back wire will run from the
low heat switch to the top, inner-most terminal of the
heater element then piggy-back to the outer terminal of
the blower motor (Figure 9).
4. Follow the power cord through the firebox chassis and
cut all zip ties that bind the two (2) wires of the power
cord using side cutters.
5. Disconnect the power cord
wire which leads to the Main
Power On/Off (or 3-Position)
Switch. This should be the
only black wire going to this
switch (Figure 10).

7. To remove power cord from
chassis, use needle nose
pliers to squeeze sides of
cable clamp and pull through
chassis of firebox, removing clamp and cable.
WARNING: Improper re-connection of wiring may result
in electric shock, fire, or injury to persons. Ensure that
connections to/from heater assembly and switches match
those of the respective wiring diagram for the particular
model and MOD level being serviced (pages 7-10).
8. Remove clamp from cable and attach to replacement
cord, leaving approximately eight (8) inches (20 cm) of
slack to wire ends (orient clamp in same manner with
tapered side facing wire ends).
9. Feed replacement power cord through chassis hole and
using pliers, squeeze sides of cable clamp to push clamp
into sheet metal until snaps in place.
! NOTE: The wire colors referenced in these instructions
may not be the same as those used in all fireboxes.
Ensure that all wiring matches original placement and/or
the wiring diagrams that are supplied in this manual.
10.Connect terminated wire end to Main Power Switch.
11. Connect crimped wire end to terminal block where
original was removed (step 6). Also ensure any wires
freed in step 6 are clamped together with power cord
wire.
viii)Follow steps 1 through 5 in reverse order to reassemble
firebox.
12.Follow steps 1 through 3 in reverse order to reassemble

Bulbs (2)
Light bulbs need to be replaced when you notice a dark
section of the flame. There are two (2) bulbs under the log
set which generate the flames and embers.
Disconnect power before attempting any maintenance or
cleaning to reduce the risk of electric shock or damage to
persons.
Helpful Hints

It is a good idea to replace all light bulbs at one time if they
are close to the end of their rated life. Group replacement
will reduce the number of times you need to open the unit to
replace light bulbs.
