Hi guys, I have been called to look at a Heatstore Storage Heater (wall mounted) that has stopped working. The lady has four of these running on Econ 7. She turned them all on at the week end and the one in the front living room dont work.

I have done an inital mains test at the swithed spur but no power due to the time that econ 7 powers on, 12am -7am but shows continuity back to the board but not from the spur to the heater.

Would it be possible to overide Econ7 times or would I just be able to disconect at the spur and attach a 13a plug to the nightstore and plug it in to test if cutout switch in side the heater has to be reset or eliment broken in the bricks ????

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

Chas

you could do that, but put your tester across the terminals to check for continuity, common faults are faulty stat, burnt out element, or overheat link melted.
