Storage Heater Our Creda Night Storage Heater has just stopped working. We have changed the fuse in the socket but it still does not work. Could it be the element. Is there any way of finding out whether the element has gone before purchasing a new one.

Re: 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.

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 would suggest that the element may have absorbed some mloisture whilst being left in storage for a period of time. You may need to take it to a local repairer to see if they can dry out the element.

If there is moisture in the element it is not safe to use, hence it trips your circuit breaker.

Hi, Last night none of the Dimplex storage heaters in my home came on. I checked the fuse box and nothing has been trippped. They were working fine the night before and I cant think of any reason why they...

It may be that the off peak to your house has failed to switch on, possibly due to the off peak time switch in your meter cupboard not working, I suggest you contact your local electricity board and ask them to check your off peak supply

Hello I have a Unidare night store heater that

ive just bought a house with unidare night stoarge heaters and one of mine hasnt worked - i found something on a site that said this:

"My Unidare storage heaters have a fused link (may be the wrong term ) that melt ever few years. Are you able to unscrew the top of the unit and look ( all turned off etc ) -A Fused link looks like an inch long piece of 5 mm solder - if yours has melted it will probably be in silver balls/blobs - replacing is easy if you have got to them."

so this could be why they arent working...

at night set the input to high (6) and output to about the morning set the output to 2/3 so a bit of heat will be released when at work, and then when you come in set the output to 6 (max)....should work! ive only just learnt what to do but ive they arent great!

Check the fuse board it should be marked up (but often is not especially if POLISH electricians concerned) it should be a 32 amp fuse.
The heater has a thermal fuse installed internally £12 replacement, these tend to be the only things that go wrong with storage heaters! get a qualified electrician who you trust to have a look otherwise who-ever looks at it will say its F****d and will take you to the cleaners
