Fireplace temperature control

I find the fireplace heats up the place even on the lowest setting( 62F ) to much, will not cycle off. Do most people find this or have you found a adjustment on the fireplace? Thanks

Other than testing it (when new) I don't believe we've ever used our fireplace. What I do use is a portable unit that I can dial in the temp. I have found I need to subtract about 8-10 F. degrees or the upper part of the 5th gets too uncomfortable.

There should be a fan speed but not a temperature control per say.

Noticed in December that the fireplace heat wasn't putting out like before. Checked and the fan speed was on the low setting...must have bumped the switch after some routine cleaning in that area.

Bumped it up and now good heat is back.

My Dimplex has a thermostat control. It's the 2nd knob from the right.

I have found that it is not very accurate. We use our fireplace a lot and it usually stays on continuously.

I guess thats the problem if we set it at 62F the bedroom is 70F - 72F.

Ours only seems to have the one speed, it does heat the place ok sometimes to much.

Our heat settings go from 62F to 84F and we do use it as our main heat when plugged in.

I have upgraded the furnace thermostat to digital wish I could do the same to the fireplace.

Thanks for the help

I have a 31.5RLTS and had same problem. Dealer changed thermostat and had same problem. Finally found solotion. Problem is that mine is located in my side on an outside wall and thermostat would not get satisfied. Dealer cut in louvers that look like heat outlets but are actually heat inlets to allow heat to get to the thermostat ( they look like fancy brass register plates). I also run my ceiling fan to circulate the heat. It now works. P.S. mine is also off by 6 degrees.

Any chance of a picture of the louvers, we rarely use the ceiling fan so will try than more often.

Thanks Craig

On ours, we can change the fan speed, from the remote.
I have to change the thermostat setting with buttons right on the front of the fireplace. No way to change this with the remote.
We find 68 gets us about 72 in the upper part of the 5th wheel.
