    Dimplex bf8000st Fireplace issues

    Just this week this unit decided to turn itself off. After reading several posts concerning these fireplaces I am at wits end.
    Things I have done
    1. Removed Fireplace
    2. Took air compressor and sprayed all of unit to remove dust.
    3. as long as unit lays flat on it's back it runs continuously. Soon as you set it up it throws the heat limit and as to have a master reset.

    Next I plan to call Dimplex to order parts.

    If the heating element is outside the unit it will run without falling

    Re: Dimplex bf8000st Fireplace issues

    I recently started having trouble with our fireplace.
    Although I haven't taken it out yet for inspection, I do have one thing in mind to check.
    There have been some reports in the past of people finding a broken solder joint.
    They seem to run fine when starting cold but when they heat up the solder joint separates causing an open circuit which then shuts the heating element down.
    So if you haven't looked closely, you might want to inspect those areas.

    Peace
