    Dimplex Opti-Myst fires

    I'm not sure if the Oakhurst is basically the same workings as the Cassington but your problem is very different from the one I had. Why don't you start a new thread so as to avoid confusion and hopefully someone will be able to help you good luck

    Dimplex Opti-Myst fires

    Thank you again AlastairE. We now have a working Cassington once more. No faulty light bulbs, no faulty lamp holders, just the burnt out wires & connectors as previous photos. Now I can show you the best photo of all, the fire working! Can't see flames very well but they are certainly there...

    Dimplex Opti-Myst fires

    AlastairE Thought you might like to see this. After taking out the lamp holder unit I discovered what is hopefully the only reason for the lamps not working.

    Hi AlastairE. I have just done the transformer test as you suggested and it is working fine. The lamp lit up like blackpool illuminations. Does this now mean it is definitely the lampholder do you think? Would you be kind enough to advise the best way in to replacing this before the entire...

    Dimplex Opti-Myst fires

    Question for AlastairE. I have been reading your posts with interest as we have a mammoth problem with our Cassington optimist series A. After18 months of minimal use (and making sure water tank was emptied & sump cleaned), we found the mist was not working. A phone call to Dimplex told us the...
