I need two brackets for my 60watt creda heated towel rack

I think that is very unlikely as they seem part of the tube in manufacture. You could contact them direct. The only other alternative would be to use plumbing pipe clips, but they are a bit industrial.

Here a few.

The towel bar keeps coming off the brackets. How do I get this corrected?

Hi. Are the brackets (mounting posts) the correct distance apart? For a 24" rail, they should be 26.22" apart (outside to outside). If they are not then they probably need to be moved so that they are.
If they are correctly spaced, are the "notches" in the mounting posts facing downwards? If not, make this so.
If the notches are facing downwards, are the screws tight enough? If, not, tighten screws.
Hope this helps. Regards, Myles

Towel warmer break


When yu say th switch fuse do you mean at the wall. Go to the breaker panel and reset also

Unfortunately there is not much you can do unless you have an owners sheet or manual. I believe an internal fuse has blown and I have no way of telling you how to access it

Call Moen customer service and ask them.

If you are handy there is probably a black plastic plug where the cord goes intothe tubing and I bet if you pulled that out you woul find a thermal fuse.

Wait until you talk to Moen then decide if you want to do it

If you do not want to do it take it to a small appliance repair person or vaaccum repair person or your local electrical vocational clas to wor onit

Towel Warmer Troubleshooting

The towel warmers are designed to stay on at a relatively constant temperature to keep your bathrobes and towels fresh, warm and dry. However, should you need to turn the unit off for any reason, usually every towel warmer have an on/off button.
