Hi YiXin

It will only use 2400 watts when on full. On settings lower than full, you will reduce the heat generated, and thus use less power. The amount of watts(energy) used is directly proportional to the heat the unit puts out. Hope this helps. A FixYa rating would be great for my solution. Thanks for using FixYa. Stay cosy :)

Dimplex Convector Heater EPX1000 turns off by itself


I have the same problem with 3 of the 5 EPX1000s I have fitted in my flat, although mine don't even warm up. They just immediately turn themselves off. My only conclusion is that they are rubbish. Specifically, the so-called overheat protection doesn't work. Avoid.

Rinnai tankless water heater code 12


12 - Flame Failure or Poor Ground

1. Immediate code 12 is usually a defective gas valve, power supply problem, or defective fan motor wiring harness.

2. If code 12 occurs after a few seconds it indicates that proper operation was established, but then stopped unexpectedly.

3. Verify that fuel is being supplied to the unit.

4. Check for proper electrical ground. Unit must use a grounded power supply.

5. Check for flue blockage on inlet or exhaust.
