SOURCE: Storage Heater

You will need a volt/ohm meter. remove the element or at least the wires on each end. set the meter to ohms, touch each lead from the meter to the opposing ends of the element. The meter should have some type of resistance. If it shows open or the needle doesn't move (on the older non digital type) then the element is bad.

Suspect a fuse blown. These are normally easily accessible at the top of the heater, once you have ISOLATED the supply and removed the cover, very carefully. (MAY be asbestos inside, if they are old heaters...)

The dial on the wall with 1-24 on it, with the red pins, is the timeswitch to turn the heater on for night-rate hours (when the electricity is cheapest). Hour 1 is 1am --> Hour 24 is midnight.
Set the red pins to turn the heater on from 11PM (23) to 7am (7). The 'on' symbol is normally a '1', with off being '0'. Otherwise, on can be symbolised with a staright line with circles on it, while off is like a little barrier-arm part up.
As for the knobs on the heater, one is for the amount of heat which goes in (how much the heater 'charges'), and the other is for how much it lets out.
Genrally in winter you set the input (nite-store, second knob) to full (6), but in spring or autumn you may reduce this as required.
The other knob (room temp) is for how much heat comes out of ther heater. If you work during the day, you will want to conserver the stored heat in the heater.
Turn the room temp knob down to about 3 when you leave for work, and wind back up to 6 when you get home. This will stop all the heat leaving the heater during the day (and maybe use less power to recharge at night).
Good luck with the time switch. Check your night-rate hours on your power account.

I moved into a flat with newlec NLSH24AN HEATER N NO INSTRUCTION. ..HELP


Hi Sharon,
This should be relatively easy.
You have storage heaters that only take in the hear during cheap rate electricity (at times you cannot change - typically between 00:00 and 07:00 but times vary - ask your electricity supplier).
.
The controls of an electric storage heater normally consist of two
dials to be found under a flap on the heater.

The input dial, sometimes known as the charge or overnight dial.
This control sets the amount of heat to be stored during the night.
It is best to be set on a seasonal basis: medium for
autumn/spring, high for winter.
If you find that you run out of heat before the end of the day,
and the Input is not on maximum, turn it up to store extra for the
following day.

The Output Dial sometimes known as the room temperature or boost dial.
This dial controls the amount of warm air or convected heat given out during the day. It opens and closes.

I have a baseboard heater in my apartment (small dining area) that has a dial that I can control the heat..the knob has #1-10...what is a good number to set it to and do I keep it on all the time. Thanks...


Hi!
The number you keep it on is whatever temperature that is comfortable to you. The settings on the dial are graduated from #1(lowest-coolest) to #10(warmest). If you want to keep the room temperature somewhat even you need to play around with the settings( one number at a time) until you find what is comfortable to you. Hope I was of help to you.

This question has already been asked, but I am still unsure .I own a flat with a Dimplex night store heater. It has two dials. One is 'Room Temp Boost' and the other is 'Input'. 'Input' is obviously the...


it does not relate to the time of day it relates to the temp in the room
as you know most heaters do not run continuously, they cycle on ambiant temp.
the boost setting is actually tweeaking that cycle,
you are actually setting the vairence in the temp setting
each modle is slightly differant but

here is an example

9 late boost, might let the temp differential drop as low as 25 degrees
1 early boost might only allow a 2 degree differential

How to work a slimline creda nitestore heater


I have one of these heaters as well. The input/output dials are thermostats.

The higher the input dial is set, the more power the heater draws during its charge cycle (ie the "on" period that is set on your time panel). Which means a higher daily ration of heat, and a bigger power bill.

The higher the output dial is set, the more quickly the heater lets the stored heat out. So the highest setting would give you most of your daily ration of heat during the "on" period but less heat for the "off period... while the lowest setting would give you a relatively constant heat output throughout the day.

Heater will not stay lit on auto procom ml 300 blue flame


If you have an ML300HGA, it is a manual-control heater, which means you turn it on and you turn it off. No thermostat. It does not have an AUTO setting.

Likewise, the thermostat-controlled models do not have a Manual mode. If you have the ML300TBA, it has a thermostat and will turn itself on/off in order to maintain a room temperature.

On manual models, the numbers (if any) on the dial are heat output selections. Set the control to the highest heat setting and that's what it does until you turn it off.

On automatic thermostat models, the numbers on the dial are temperature selections. Set the control to the highest heat setting and the heater will continue running until it is 85-90 degrees, then shut off. Set it around 2 and it will maintain a temp of around 70 degrees.

All Procom heaters are either automatic (thermostat-controlled) or Manual. None are both.
