    Decided to change noisy and annoying motor on electric fire. On looking for replacement direct from dimplex, I find they cost in the region of £80. After a search I have found replacements on amazon for around £12, they fit all the technical requirements. Has anybody had any experience of these good or bad.

    Not sure how to give you a link,but it is a Akozon Synchronus motor and it’s just under £9. I haven’t got it yet so I am not sure if it will fit the bill but at that price it a gamble worth taking.Certainly won’t be spending £80 on the Dimplex one.

    Just an update re the replacement motor. Had to adjust screw holes to fix motor in place but it’s working and is very quiet. Kept it running continuously for 2 hours and motor seemed to get very warm. But then again all motors get warm when running this long, don’t they
