Dales-Electronic :

OK I have the information for you when you are ready with a pen and paper

Customer: I have taken sump ecc out of fire basket and just switched on lights they all light up but cut out in 25secs ??
Customer: Have pen and paper
Dales-Electronic :

OK the problem you have got is when the bulb blew it damaged the lamp holder inside, if you order a new lamp holder part number is ***** this will rectify your problem,. You can get the holder from any independent electrical company that deals with Dimplex or perhaps on the internet now that I have given you the part, I work for Glen Dimplex on the appliance side but my college in the heating and fire side has just advised that this is a common problem with the Optimyst range of fires. Would you now kindly rate my service using the smiley faces below. This allows me to shut the job down but you can then ask further questions at no extra cost to you. Have a great afternoon ~ Ian

Customer: THANKYOU Ian I will and although it's not what I was hoping very happy with your service have good w/e
