Economy 7 heaters not working well

My heatstore economy 7 heaters always seem to be way too hot in the morning and too cold in the evening no matter how I set the input and output dials. I understand that newer models have less insulation so are less efficient but these ones seem so poor I think something else must be occurring.

    My economy 7 storage heaters, let more heat out during the day than they do at night, my input switch is on 6, and my output on 1, and even having it on 1, it still gives too much heat out on a morning than on an evening, when i turn it up to about 4.

SOURCE: low heat output

Hi,
first of all, have the thermostacts been checked,if not they will need to be checked,mainly dust can get into them.
if they have heating elements,ckeck to see if they are all in tact and have no dust on them.if this does not work then you will need new heating elements,which you might not get any more,if this is the case then im sorry to say that new heaters will be needed. i hope this helps and good luck.

SOURCE: Hot electrical smell

Before you open the the unit check first the warranty period /if open the unit the warranty will be cancelled .
The heat sensor not working in automatic / the heat exceed the limit by the heating machine the insulation keep smelling .
The small contactor might stuck due to spark and then stick together , /need to replace contactor .

I would start by checking the fuel filter form the tank to the nozzle. If this is getting dirty the heater will slowly start loosing the red glow on the nose cone until the until shuts down.
Normally if it sets for a few minutes it will start and run again.

You can order a filter replacement kit that has all of your filters included.

What does economy button mean? When it is not on economy it goes above the desired temperature setting but when it is on economy it never reaches the desired setting. Can you help??? Do others have th


According to the owners manual, the "Economy" mode is designed to reduce the temperature setting by 2 degrees every hour. May not be what you were expecting... On the too hot issue: Check the thermostat setting - it can read either Celsius or Farenheit - Make sure you are setting it to what you think you are... Recommendation: if it is heating higher than set temperature is 1) set the temp lower and see how it does or 2) call a repair man to check and calibrate the thermostat.

Working instructions for creada electric wall heaters modle 79351S


sounds like the electric economy 7 heaters too me, i had them and hated em.

basically the heaters work between 1am-7am or similiar.

the best way is to think of it as a battery, it needs to be charged and the output is whatever your using the power on.

the higher the number on the input the more heat is stored into the heater. the higher the number on the output the more heat that is released.

i always put mine on 5 to store the most heat and left it on about 3 so it would always release and charge.

hope that helps

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.

I have a Rinnai 1004F, no manual. Vent Contol Button is in open position, its winter, should vent be closed at all? Economy button, whats it for?


Not sure about Vent Control however the Economy button is like a night time set back. Over a 2 hour period it will decrease the temperature up to 6 degrees from set point. In morning, just take off economy and unit will come up to temp. Go to www.rinnai.us for on-line manual.

Thermostat wont work


Go down to your heater and find the thermostat wires. there should only be 2 wires connected, One will be connected to R and the other to W match them to RH and W on the thermostat. The jumper will not matter.
