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.

SOURCE: heater won't come on when temp drops...must reset limit switch every time.

The limit switch is shutting off and you are having to press the re-set button, right? The limit switch, if I am understanding you correctly, is the thermal disc type, may be ok, but what is causing it to shut off? I would first, not put total faith in the serviceman (PG&E maybe) and replace the limit switch. Its only a few bucks,and easy to do. Then if its still the same problem, look into the venting pipe. As it may not be adequate for the heater. Espically if its new. These new wall furnaces are kind of touchy. It may be larger, BTU wise, and the vent pipe may need to be enlarged. If this is a big job, and a bit too impractical, check the vent pipe, make sure its in good conditon, no leaks ect. install a cO2 detector and by-pass the limit switch.

SOURCE: 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.

I have 2 tsr12aw creda storage heaters, one gets hotter and stays warmer for longer, the imput switch clicks much quicker on the cooler one,is there an internal adjustment to increase the time it asks

you will find that it is like that on these models, the temp sensor is just a bit of metal and it heats up and then opens the circuit then when it cools down close the circuit and starts to heat up again. over time it will turn off quicker as the bit of metal or copper depending what was fitted will cut of quicker.

When asking for help, you should include the brand and model number to help get a great answer.

The automatic defrost system has 3 parts. 1: Timer. 2: heater. 3: thermal switch

The timer will start the automatic defrost cycle every so many hours. If the timer fails, the defrost cycle will never start. The electrical schematics should be under or on the back of the refrigerator. You can use this to figure out how to test the timer.

The heater is what does the actual defrosting. If it is broken, it will not heat.

The thermal switch turns the heater off when enough ice has been melted. If this switch fails, it will prevent the heater from heating.

The heater and the thermal switch will be wired in series and their connections will be securely covered so you cannot test them independently. You can electrically test then together but you cannot decide which one is broken unless you expose or cut a wire. I have never seen a heater fail.

I see timers and thermal switches fail. Heaters don't fail very often.

The heater and thermal switch are in the freezer area and are very close to the evaporator. You will have to take apart enough of the freezer compartment to get to these parts. You will also need to melt enough ice to get to these parts.

Shower will not heat up. Creda Aqua 9.5e - was working fine but now no red neon indicator and cold water only. I have checked power going into unit and is ok.

May have a tripped thermal overload or blown fuse. Some overloads reset automatically but some will have a red button to reset it with. Some have to be replaced.

Yes ,you can and fuse at 13amp.
Although the correct way would be to terminate the plinth heater in a switched fused spur or an unswitched fused spur fused at 13 amp
This can either replace a single or double socket or it can be taken of the socket by using 2.5mm2 twin and earth cable.
All parts availiable from hardware store or electrical retailer

Early / Late boost in dimplex storage heater

The output setting if turned off isn't adjusting the temperature in the room automatically if its off,and by turning the output up is like turning up the heat.By turning the output switch on you can let the heater automatically control the heat.Still you need to monitor the adjustments to your liking and then you know how hot it will be when you come back into that room.

How do I reset ?

It should come on automatically, if it does not then the thermal switch is faulty, and has to be replaced.
