The principle of electric storage heaters is that they take in electricity at night through a central time switch (normally owned by the electricity supply company and usually not controllable by the user).

There should then be a main switch/ fuse box to control the heater circiuts, check for such a box and that it is switched on (This would normally be sited near the electricity meter).

There should be an isolator switch next to each heater but from what you say this is not the case.

There should be some controls on each storage heater marked INPUT with a dial from 1 to 6 or similar then another marked OUTPUT or BOOST.

When you have ascertained the fuse box is on and the heater controls are set to maximum you then have to wait overnight for the heaters to warm up.

Problem with Air Conditioner


there will be an access panel where the motor is located. 1st thing to check is fuse or circuit breaker feeding the air handler. this is on seperate power from compressor unit outside and usually has a fused or breakered disconnect on the side of the unit. if fuses are good or breaker is not tripped then switch fan mode to on. if blower runs in on but not in auto then it is a thermostat problem. if still no go then turn off power, remove access panel and find the squirrel cage fan blade. make sure it turns freely. it is very common for these motors to go bad. it can usually be removed easily and taken to a motor shop. I use Roy's Electric in Richmond, Va. They can test the motor on the bench and replace it if it is faulty.

I have just moved in to a flat with a vent axia storage heater. I switched it on last night and although the output in off it is still heating up the room today. Is that normal? thanks Heather


Yes, Heather, it's working correctly. It lives up to it's name "storage heater". When you turned it on last night, it heated and at the same time it was storing heat to be used later, during peak electrical use hours, without having to use any electricity. It's working as it should.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi I have a Rinnai RCE-29H (gas heater) that I just got off a friend and it is working fine however the Filter light comes on from time to time. Once the light comes on it generally stays on for a while....


No, Tina there's only the one filter. However, the filter should never be removed for cleaning while the heaters electronics are ON. If you're still getting the filter light. Turn the heater Off, using the Master On/Off Switch and unplug the electrical cord from the wall outlet. Leave the heater unplugged for 15 minutes. Plug the heater back in and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON, the heater electronics should turn ON and revert back to the original factory settings. After that, you can reset them to what you originally had them on.

As far as an Owners Manual is concerned, I couldn't find one in my Rinnai USA data base, that matches the one you listed. If you don't live in the U.S. that's probably the reason. However, if you can provide me with the country you live in, I may can find one for you.

Hope this helped. Please let me know. Thanks.

We have recently moved into our house which uses Dimplex storage heaters ,but I have never used them before how can i use them to the best effeciency


This type of heater is found primarily in European countries and Australia. They are designed to take advantage of Off Peak Electric Rates. Thereby, saving the consumer on their electric bill.

Below is a link that will explain to you the proper operation of your storage heater. You can print it for future reference, if you like.

My sunbeam heater is 10 months old. It was left on over night only twice in the past week. Today the heater worked for a couple hours then shot off will not go back on with the reset instructions printed...


Ther is a thermal monitor switch that expands and contracts to set temperature to regulate the on off switch. the best guess i have is the thermal plate in the plate that expnads and contracts to connect the contact that engages the switch to on has failed or is faulty.This is common if the heater has been jarred or knocked over while running and has become cracked.also the safety override maybe stuck give a medium smack on the side while cool and see if it rengauges.

B93-366 Indoor Unit Ours is mounted on the wall in a new room addition (3 years ago). Has worked fine. Used it with remote control a few days ago. It worked fine. Turned it off with remote control. next...


You will have to remove the front panel and check the fuse to make sure that it did not pop. Also check your breaker switch to make sure that your breaker did not pop. Those can be your really only two issues
