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 .

SOURCE: creda economy 7 heaters not working!

Whe you turn the heaters on again after they have been off you have to keep them on maximum for 48 hours (both input and output dials) to get the bricks warmed up for regular working

Two 8 ft baseboards will heat this basement fine. You should eliminate any sources of flooding before you invest in refinished your basement.

Heat problem. Heater only works sometimes. Blows out almost AC temperature majority of the time. No engine overheating problems. May or may not be related to actuator issue (vent always open)


Check to see if your heating system is properly filled. Air in system can often prevent the proper flow of hot coolant into the radiator core resulting in your issue.

Not getting any hot water. Pilot light and burner seem to be working properly. Went from working fine in morning to not working at all this evening.


No hot water anywhere,or just one faucet,doesn't sound right if burner is working,if its coming on then your gas valve/thermostat on front is not working properly.Can be changed,but I would turn up temp. red dial see if she fires and watch to see if she stays on.Gas valve is threaded in and can be changed,depending on warranty.Could also be dip tube is cracked or broken in half,its a tube that forces cold water to bottem of tank,if not working you'll get a real short shower because cold water is in top of tank.Tube can be replaced,its on the cold water fill side which would have to be taken apart.Thinking now its your tube

Economy 7 water heater prblem


If you are still getting power to the HW heater, more than likely the heating element has gone out.They can be easily changed from behind little panels on side of heater. Usually screw in.

2001 Suzuki XL-7. Heater blows hot one side, cold the other.


No ductwork [to the lower vents] under the dash. They are part of the heater core / blower housing is integrated (all one piece).

After reviewing shop manual, we suspect that one of the three damper flaps is not positioning correctly; or debris has blocked one side (which makes more sense given the symptoms).

We're waiting for the temperatures to get back in the plus numbers to check out the physical arrangement.

Fully warmed up; blowing hot and cold; Suzuki XL-7


Its just a vent damper plate not operating, it's like a gate which controls the flow of air,,usually they are operated by vacuum, or cables.
Service center time, unless you are handy with your own repairs.

W'm63 won't hot wash


Make sure you have not selected economy wash,as this bypasses the heater, and washes at the temperature the water has come into the washer at,
If it still is not getting hot, then the heater element is more than likely to be the culprit., these 2 things are about the only ones that would enable the washer to wash in cold water.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
