SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: my dimplex night storage heater has stopped working.

...not too sure of your model but all dimplex heaters to my knowledge have an 'overload' cut out built into the system. Ours is more up to date but still goes now and then, problem is you have to get into the electrics and click the reset button, normally near or on the thermostat it's self, could be a small white plastic button, or a piece metal sticking up that needs pressing down to reset...but please before attempting make sure that you TURN OFF THE ELECTRIC / REMOVE THE FUSE/ WHAT EVER IT TAKES TO CUT ANY CHANCE OF AN ELECTRIC SHOCK!!!...because I can and will get you if it can ;-)... if your not a competent electrician please get hold of one !... good luck.

The touch pad sends a signal in sequential orientation that starts and stops various functions. When the controller sent a message to the heater coil to disconnect it failed to negotiate the command. The problem therefore is the electronic switch in the heater circuit. It could also be as simple as a temporary short due to moisture buildup on sensitive electronics and connections. Check all internal wiring for disruption or damaged insulation.

Elite troubleshooting

unplug/remove power from device.. check heater element with a volt/ohm meter if ok , check timer for burnt contacts or circuit board for burnt connections, may be an internal logic failure if its electronically controlled(bad board/controller)

Pontiac g6 code P0054

Hi. Generic code description is
O2 sensor 1 bank 2 Heater control circuit.
Means the heated oxygen sensors internal heating element isn't working. Visual inspection of wiring and plug then if that's ok and you haven't any live data its probably worth a shot at replacing the O2 sensor itself. You can check the resistance of the heater element with a multi meter on ohms by disconnecting the O2 sensor plug and compare it to the other sensors for a guide if your technically minded. Jon.

Storage part of heater not working boost working fine

It sounds like the storage heating element has fasiled and/or the associated thermostat has failed. With the mains power disconnected a multimeter could be used to test the continuity of both the element and thermostat. You should get a low reading (under 10 Ohms) on both if they are OK. If either item reads a very high restince or open circuit, then they will have to be replaced.
