I mean the mains, i.e. in the fuse box. Bearing in mind when they are on-most days in winter - they are on for 13/14 hours a day they lasted about six weeks.V
Hi Michael: This might help you: Because the lamps (Supa Lite 60w Clear Candle) were blowing all the time, on the suggestion of Dimplex Parts, I bought 42w( Philips ) lamps as standby. However, the lamp which has blown and put the electrics off was the original Supa Lite. Looking at the blown bulb itself, it has a silvery/black film inside, and the metal 'pip' in the middle of the screw bit has.......disappeared! There is a black 'gunge' around the screw itself power end. The one bulb which is functioning is a Philips. V
Please outline how the socket could be replaced.............I am disabled so I will have to ask for help........however, if I source the part myself it will lessen the hassle for my helper. When you say socket, is that the black plastic thing the bulb screws into?
You have a good weekend too Michael. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX will look forward to hearing about the replacement socket stockist on Monday. V
Any luck with the info re replacement socket?
As Espares could not help, I rang Dimplex Customer Care. The young man said that I would need a 'complete base assembly (FP07007) ' and referred me to UK Spares. Their website shows this part.
As this is very expensive, could you look at this for me please Michael. Will it be a big job for an electrician?
Have just ordered the base assembly ( with carriage £91 ) from UK Spares. They say it should be with me tomorrow - very speedy hey?
Good to know you are there.
Hello Michael. UPS delivered a parcel which I think is the part; haven't opened it; will leave this to the repairman. How would you suggest I find a reliable, qualified electrician for this job we are in Woolton, Liverpool? Thanks V
Thanks for the suggestion, Michael. Unfortunately, a family crisis demands my immediate attention, so I will have to leave the repair arrangements until I get back home. Will keep you in the loop. Kind regards. V
