Air/heat circulator

The fan is good & useful for multiple purposes. Powerful output & provides direct airflow, circulate air or heat & just circulate & distribute room air. Love the 360 degree rotation. The fan is very stable.

Purchased in for $60.

Can't clean the fan blades and inside - it's dangerous and could be a fire hazard.

published

I purchased a Dimplex DCACM20 Air Circulator 23/1/2020. At first I didn't use it much but lately I am using it more and it needs a good clean on the inside but the instruction manual says just wipe the outside with a soft brush and wipe the surface of the unit with a soft damp cloth and a mild detergent which is alright for the outside but how on earth do you clean the inside. There is no mention of how to clean the inside. Dust and grime has built up on the fan blades inside the air circulator and all the instruction manual says is 'THE FAN COVER CANNOT BE REMOVED'. It's very dangerous and could be a fire hazard. I wouldn't recommend this product.

Purchased in for $155.90.

There is no screw on the back of the dcacm20 so there is no way to gain access to clean the blades plus on page 10 under cleaning - the manual states note: the fan cover cannot be removed? Please inform me where is this supposed screw on the back?

How do you clean it?

published

This is a great little fan but I can't clean it. Now it takes a while to actually start rotating. Probably dust build up because I live out in the country. Please help

Same Model by ecHome for Half the Price - identical model

published

I recently purchased a Dimplex Air Circulator with Electronic Controls, Timer and Remote from TVSN for $149 and found an absolutely same model and design from ecHome at Amazon for $89 only. The Amazon item is the same item as the Dimplex including the same remote control. Why pay $60 more with the difference of the name in the centre stuck on by Dimplex. Both items are made in China and I am convinced they are manufactured at the same factory. Performance is the same and the only difference is the guaranty time of 12 months by Dimplex and 18 months by ecHome. The ecHome is cheaper and you get a longer-lasting guaranty.

Nice looking fan but hard to clean

published

Nice looking little fan, needs more thought put into accessing fan blades for cleaning. Can be quite noisy, they need a very low setting for at night, I found it too noisy to use in my bedroom at night, so ended up giving it away to a relative.

Purchased for $80.

Hmmmm

published

Love the design, but it broke a few days out of warranty like a fair few others I see. I have searched high and low for a fan that suits my needs and finally settled.on this one. Love it, particularly the design and function. Lights are too bright at night, and it really needs oscillation rather than 360 degree rotation. And then it broke. Want another but not if it will break again. (Rear bearing seized)

Purchased in for $130.

Pretty good

published

Great function and form factor. Quite on low speed but noisy on high. Difficult to clean but not impossible. The front of the unit does come off, there is a screw you can access from the back. Once removed, it’s easier to get to cover off.

Good fan but useless if you can't clean it.

published

This is a great little fan to start with, but as mentioned in the manual, dust build-up will effect the operation and yet you can't remove the grill cover to clean the dust! They recommend to use a vacuum, however, as other reviews have mentioned, this simply does not work. So, depending on your environment, you effectively have a fan becoming increasing ineffective within a few months. Would I recommend it? Certainly NOT!

PR Top marks Dimplex Thank you

published

Good old fashioned service is alive and well. Purchased a Dimplex Evaporitave cooler ( can recommend) last November (2019) with this bonus fan. Fan failed in January just out of warranty, enquired Dimplex where to take for repairs but was informed it couldn't be fiixed but was requested to forward our purchase receipt. Today we recieved a replacement, not new, but how wonderful to encounter a company with genuine customer care qualities, as older Aussies it's a breath of fresh air. Thankyou Dimplex and congratulations.

Great fan

published

Very happy with purchase. I am light sleeper and wanted something quiet for bedroom. Low setting is more than enough for a nice breeze and average size room. Middle speed is noticeably louder and not something I could sleep with. Top speed is too noisy and not something you would have on continuously. Remote control is great, saving getting out of bed.

WhirlTech Air Circulators

I own 3 of these Dimplex Air circulators and I love them but there is a major design flaw if they can't be cleaned properly. It is impossible to get to the blades with a vacuum cleaner as the user manual suggests. I have tried using an upholstery brush and a crevice tool which worked fine to remove the dust from the front and back panels but I could not get anywhere near the blades. I sat there for over an hour with a butter knife wrapped in a Chux wipe trying to remove all the dust to no avail. I have the electronic model with remote control and they are not a cheap unit. I feel that the built-up dust is affecting the fans performance, it even says that in the user manual but how are you supposed to keep it clean if you can't get to it. Surely there must be some way of removing the front panel.

Vacuum cleaner is not enough to clean from blades accumulating dust. Is there any way to open the front panel? I love my Dimplex but this is the only fan I know that front panel cannot be opened?

Hi Mihye K.
The cover over the blades is a sealed unit and cannot be opened unfortunately.

How do you get to the blades to clean this model? Front does not seem to want to be removed and it would be very difficult without out being able to remove it

Hi LeeAnn Warren,
The blades are in a sealed unit so you will need to use your vacuum cleaner to clean the blades from time to time if there is a dust build up.

Hi Glen, vacuum cleaner is definitely not enough to clean the blades. Is there anyway to open the front panel?
