What are the most frequent reasons for a broken storage heater?
In most cases, it’s a faulty thermostat. However, very often, the storage heater can stop working due to malfunction in the blown element (usually if the heater turns cold, the reason is the heating element). Another reason might be the terminal block (this is the least likely reason).
If you have a little knowledge about heating elements and basic handyman activities, you may remove the front panel and check if the thermostat is causing the problem. Here you may also asses it the storage heater can be repaired.
If you can’t assess correctly, or there are other visible problems, you need to contact qualified electricians like us to do a professional storage heater repair.
