Dimplex fireplace not flickering

Our fireplace is not flickering and I am not sure how to get this thing out of the mantle (“15 CS “B”). There are screws on the top that screw into mantle and after removal, it will tilt but not move out.Click image for larger version

ID:	301773. There appears to be an “L” bracket referred to in installation instructions and they maybe located about 5” in from either side at the bottom.

If that is the case,it appears there is a piece of molding across the bottom that is covering the “L” brackets. If that is the case, then the only way to remove the fireplace is to remove this bottom molding. Am I missing something? I can remove the molding but don’t want to if there is another way! My guess was that the two screws in the frame at the top was all that was holding it in, but that doesn’t seem to be the case

Has anyone removed a Dimplex fireplace? It heats, logs appear lighter, but no flicker!

Thanks!

You are correct and you have to carefully remove the bottom molding piece. That will expose the 2 screws you need to get to which will then allow you to remove the fireplace. We had a 15 CS and had to repair our fireplace at one time and that's the only way to get it out. That bottom molding piece is attached with long staples. So if your careful prying it off and working your way down it. It's really not hard.
Hope this helps.

Thanks, Bob! That is what it appeared to me, but it doesn’t make sense EC would put a piece of molding over an appliance bracket, but there you go! Mine appears to be nailed with a finish nailer. I have finish, pin, and crown staplers but none with me in Colorado!

Dave, I don't disagree. It took me awhile when I had to fix ours how to get to it.
If it helps. After I took that piece of molding off. I also didn't have the exact fastners to put it back on. So I used colored paneling nails that closely matched and a marker to cover up any imperfections. It worked out well and nobody was the wiser that I was ever in there.

I just flipped down the lower panel that covers the knobs at the bottom.then you will see two screws one in each corner.
remove those and the two at the top corners and mine just slid out.
no wood removal needed.

It would really help to know what kind or model of coach you have as there is no one universal procedure for installing something like this. Is your coach the same model and year as the OPs?

Gary you are right I don't have the same coach i was going by the photo of his fireplace and it looked exactly like mine.i sorta was thinking the install would be the same irregardless and hoping to save the op needless work.if after finding what i suggested to not be enough to remove the fireplace he very well may need to go further with removing other stuff.

That may well be the case... (yours may in fact be the same). I was just trying to clarify so he didnt start prying apart things that his installation dont need pried apart. Always good to check on models and vintage since these coaches are put together differently every year and sometimes within model years.

It will be interested in what the OP finds. I had to have my fireplace replaced because it actually caught on fire (luckily just the eletronics) but I was not there to watch the replacement so have no idea what the secret is to removing or replacing mine on this coach (different from the Anthem that had the fire place burn up).

Dimplex fireplace not flickering

I moved my subwoofer behind the fireplace, so I carefully removed the bottom wood strip and remounted it with some thin Velcro tape. This will allow easier access if ever needed.

While I was at it, I put a power strip in the cavity and added a power outlet. My Classic does not have any convenient 110V outlets in the front so this was my fix.

That is one nice thing about my 19 Cornerstone.... there are 120 VAC with USB charging sockets all over this coach, including 2 or 3 up in the cockpit. Much improved.
