Creda economy 7 heaters not working!

Last year they worked perfectly. Tried to turn them on this year, have kept the same settings as last year and set it up exactly the same way, but the heaters dont seem to be working.

No clothes have ever been put over them. Seems like the 'message' isnt getting through from the control panel to the heater.

Whe you turn the heaters on again after they have been off you have to keep them on maximum for 48 hours (both input and output dials) to get the bricks warmed up for regular working

Cursor working but keyborad does'nt tried num lock, turning on and off and recovery, i cant type in myt password to get into the laptop, what should i do. was working perfect last night

Try plugging in an external keyboard so you can access the system. Once you are in the system, see if there are any errors in device manager and update drivers if needed. If it is not a driver issue, you may need to replace the keyboard.

I have two 7 month old Pro Com vent free gas garage heater ( Model Number MD300 TGA Propanr heaters. I use them for emergency heat during power outages in my greenhouses. Last year they worked perfectly...

Are all three now connected to the same source? That might have something to do with it. Anyway a safe and easy solution is to flush the pilot assembly with Rustbuster and allow it to dry . This clears the pilot of dust and cobwebs without disturbing the innards of the vent free safety pilot. Muck that uo and you will have to buy another. Get yourself some rust buster.

Creda storage heater manual

I'm not a heating expert, but according to the information I could find, Economy 7 utilizes cheap electricty at night, during off-peak hours (7 hours) between midnight and 7AM. Economy 7 costs about 4p per unit compared to peak electricity, which is about 10 to 15p per unit. If you do not have Economy 7, you can request it FREE of charge from your electricity provider. You will either have one meter with two readings or two separate meters. A two tariff electric meter will record the electricity used during off peak times, so it can be billed, separately, at a lower rate. If you have two meters, one meter controls on peak daytime electricity and the other controls your night time economy 7 electricity.

I would need to know what model Creda heater you have installed in order to determine how energy efficient it may be. I also will need the model so I can determine operating instructions. If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps.

Aquarius WMA40 - drum rattles. Even when empty and turned by hand, but most significantly and scarily on spin. Occasionaly bangs loudly

Disconnect the machine from the power and water supply and open the access panel on the back. You'll see a drive belt engaging onto a large wheel which is bolted to the drum. Turn the machine by hand (watch your fingers!) and check for loose parts.

If that's all OK then the the drum bearings have likely failed. The parts are relatively cheap, but unless you are an experienced mechanic it's definitely not a DIY job. Even for a pro it's a bit of a pig, as the old bearing does not come out easily and removing or refitting can ruin the outer drum. If the shaft seal is damaged the machine will leak, and whilst repairing the machine it's easy to break the cast alloy drum spider.

Customers tend not to be pleased when the job goes wrong or entails extra work for reasons beyond the control of the repairer, and professional repairers have a high chance of a non-paying recall if the machine leaks afterwards or if the new bearing didn't go in perfectly squarely. Officially the answer is to fit a complete new drum assembly which is not cheap.

On Merloni Group appliances like yours, the bearings tend to only just last the expected 5 year maximum design lifespan (4 years or less for 1200 spin speed models), and when they fail you can usually expect many other components to be worn out and waiting to fail. Replacement bearings don't last anywhere near as long, typically about 9 months to 2 years at best.

Your machine is likely about 7 years old now, so the best option is to chuck it away and buy another. Preferably not Merloni Group (Hotpoint, Cannon, Indesit, Creda) as they're all unreliable. German machines are generally very good, as are Samsung, although in recent years Bosch are no longer anywhere near as reliable as they once were, although the closely-related Siemens machines which use most of the same parts are still good as are AEG and Miele.

Merloni might be relatively cheap, but you end up buying them twice as often as machines which don't cost twice as much.

How do i operate the creda 79153, i think i set it wrongly and it costing me more.thanks

You have to regulate the heat yourself by setting the room temperature dial to 1 for a low heat (say for the daytime if you are out) and a higher setting in the evening - Make sure you switch it back to the lower setting before you go to bed. This should make the heat last for most of the day - the other dial is to regulate the heat that is stored so in the summer set it to 1 and the winter store at a higher setting -hope this helps

they are storage heaters and they have bricks in them. They get heated during the night (economy 7), that starts according to what has been set on the system (there shd be a *** 'boiler' room where the economy seven is). Anyway they heat up from the evening say 8 pm to around 6 am. And because the bricks are hot they slowly release heat during the day depending on what level you have set your room temperature to. The overnight charge does what it says on the tin, in that the brick will heat to a level you have set it at. the higher it is the hotter it gets and the more heat you can have during the day.

I have a Rinnai Energysaver 556F

The heater will have some error codes stored in it. To retrieve them get an assistant to write down the codes as you see them. They come quickly. OK to get the codes, push down on the Economy button and the up arrow and down arrow at the same time. Hold for three seconds. It will take three fingers to do this. Once you get the error codes, look in your owners manual to diagnose.
