The following is the manufacturers instruction manual in .pdf format.

I did a little research on the Dimplex DFI2309 Electric Fireplace Insert and here's what I came up with: The manufacturer is Dimplex North America Limited a world leader in electric heating. The company has invested heavily in product R & D and has come up with some pretty innovative and interesting products. Dimplex North America Limited is a member of the Glen Dimplex Group of companies of Dublin, Ireland and employs over 8,500 people worldwide with sales in excess of $3.0 billion.

The fireplace insert distributes an even heat over a wide area by means of a silent fan-forced heater. It will produce approx 4692 BTU's of heat. The flames and heater operate independently of each other so you can have just flames or flames and heat. The fireplace is 100% efficient (like any electric heater). All of the energy supplied to the unit is converted into heat, which stays in the room to keep you warm. Many gas fireplaces advertise 70-80% efficiency. This means that 20-30% of the energy supplied to the unit is vented outside. The fireplace insert operates for pennies a day. The flames use slightly under 120 Watts of power with flames only. With an average electricity rate, the unit operates for a remarkable 2¢/hr. When you choose to activate the heat feature along with the flame, the unit uses approximately 1500 Watts. The total cost to operate the flame and heater is approximately 8¢/hr* (gas fireplace manufacturers regularly advertise running costs of 17¢/hr or more)! *Electricity rates vary. 8¢/hr based on the heater cycling at 50%. Unlike gas fireplaces, which require venting, fuel pipelines, the Dimplex fireplace just needs to be plugged in.

I was surprised how realistic the fire looked when I first turned this on.

This is a solution to a thorny problem I faced. I have a rental property with what is either a faux or unfinished fireplace: depneds on your viewpoint. I didn't want to remove it,and i sure didn't want someone lighting a fire in it!

I had available electricity and available gas, but unvented logs, though heat-efficient, can oxygen deficit a room if one is not careful. (And who wants to be careful when sleeping!)

So, I took a chance on this baby at net $175 after using my prime and offered Amazon discounts.

The two speed heater and blower is just about right for a small room.

This loses its fifth star because the designers placed the remote receiver on the wall plg instead of the unit. It belongs n the unit, so you can simply point the remote at your fireplace, and it works.

In my case, the wall outlet is not reachable by line of sight, and so the circumstances rendered the remote control - an otherwise nice feature - unusable, and turn thisinto a manually switched fireplace.

OK, so I was a little skeptical about buying the electric fireplace thingy. The doubts? It might look fakey, I wouldn't like the flames, it wouldn't put out any heat.

Wrong, wrong, and wrong. I am in LOVE with this product. I use it almost every day, and people who come over just cannot believe it's not real. One friend is replacing her gas logs after seeing my fireplace. One click of the remote, and you have a fire going. To be honest, I still don't understand how this works on a light bulb. The logs seem to glow, there are little embers that appear to be burning, and the flames dance around just like a real fire.

Oh Dimplex designers and engineers....I don't know how you did it, but you did. For $170 and free shipping (thank you Amazon!) I now have a cozy living room that I enjoy reading or watching TV in. This is truly an amazing product.

I guess you can tell I give it my highest recommendation!

This has the potential of being a very nice product. Worked well, looks great. Throws off decent heat.

My fan broke after 18 months, and the solution from the manufacturer was for me to purchase a replacement module for $80. Thanks again to Chinese manufacturing !! When will we ever learn?

*** UPDATE 2/2010 ***

Refused to spend the money for a replacement motor and tore the unit apart myself. All I needed to do was to gently "center" the metal blower frame by pushing it away from one side. Then the unit began working normally. I did this 6 months ago and the fix still stands. It may need to have this "adjustment" every year or so. Still, would have been helpful if the people at Dimplex suggested this simple fix - so I'm keeping my rating as it stands. Hope this helps someone out there.

This unit looks nice but is way over priced for what it is. If you are planning on getting good heat from the unit, forget it. It produces a small amount of heat only about one foot in front of your fireplace. I get better heat from a $12.00 heater with the same wattage and btu output. At the high setting the fan is to low, probably for sound reduction, and it may as well not even have the low speed setting. If you want something to look pretty in your empty fireplace then this will work. Sitting in there by itself looks bad unless you purchase (separately) the fireplace trim and screen kit that all looks good when completed. The problem? Thats right, the cost. Another $200.00 plus. And when it comes time to change the 2 bulbs that create the simulated look of fire, you have to take it all apart. Half the price for the combined package would be a fair value.
