Dimplex Cavendish CSH20 opti-myst fire Two points that I

This answer was rated:

Dimplex Cavendish CSH20 opti-myst fire
Two points that I require your help on:
1) Opti-myst will not function on its own even when it is on the correct setting. There is also heat being blown.
2) On of my lights will not function. The three other lights are working OK. Looks as though there is not a connection being made on the light. Have changed lamps but this makes no difference.
Thanks for any help in this matter.
Hi Joe, how old is your Opti-myst?
Also are you saying that when its hooked up the unit constantly blows air even cold air around all the time and the unit isn't responding to the controls?
Please let me know if any of the controls are operating as they should and which ones are working if any.
Thanks for your patience Joe;-)

All the controls are working but when you only require the flame effect and opti-myst on I get the one bleep for this function but I also get the heat coming through with the fan.

Fire is around 5 years old

Hi Joe,
Thanks for that information.
This is a failing main control board.
Its easy to replace with just a few basic hand tools, I will help you with this.
The best place to try for that part is this website:
There will be a phone # ***** that page please call them for the main board.
I will stick with you.

What about the first question regarding the light that's not functioning.



Hi Joe, that is more than likely due to the main board as well.
Once you replace that board, let me know how it goes and if it also fixes the light;-)
Please rate my service and I will stick with you until this is working perfectly;-)
Thanks Joe.
