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.

Suspect a fuse blown. These are normally easily accessible at the top of the heater, once you have ISOLATED the supply and removed the cover, very carefully. (MAY be asbestos inside, if they are old heaters...)

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

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.
