    Storage Heater problem

    Evening, I have a fairly new storage heater in my living room, it’s about 2 years old and has had fair usage. I noticed last week the switch on the wall was getting very hot to touch. I took it off the wall to find the cables going to the storage heater were scorched and melted. The supply...

    Hoover HMA28SK Fridge Freezer Problem

    I turned it back on about an hour ago after a 24 hour wait, the fridge is down to 2 degrees but the fridge is still warm with no temperature change at all! Am I right in thinking that the freezer does not run off the same thermostat as the fridge? To me, it does sound like a thermostat...

    Hoover HMA28SK Fridge Freezer Problem

    Morning, Over the weekend my fridge freezer decided that it wanted to claim my over time that I got this month. I noticed the fridge had become warm and some items had defrosted in the freezer. It needed defrosted as the ice had built up a bit so I defrosted the freezer over a few hours...

    New front door fitted to close to the floor

    Yeah UPVC, they raised it just by placing a load of packers under the foot plate / sill thing and squirting expanding foam under it, you couldn’t step on it for a few days as it caved in the middle. I think like you said, its most likely the surveyors fault. The window was a terrible fit, had...

    Why is the cable going to the shower melting?

    Well it was, but this new thick earth cable was the one the fitter put in! The worrying thing is he put in a higher rated shower, 7.5kw to 10.5kw and moved the shower from one end of the room to the other. As far as we can tell he never ran this new earth to the consumer box so god knows where...

    Why is the cable going to the shower melting?

    Hello My brother has had his shower moved when he had the bathroom refitted. Recently the shower had been cutting out, loosing all power then sometimes coming back on by itself. I took a look and it looks like the ceiling pull switch was to blame because if you held the cord tight but not...

    Hi I havnt got a circular saw but do have a electric planer. I need to remove around 10mm of the top and bottom of a timber door. I used the electric planer before and its very violent and creates lots of rough edges and splits the wood very easy (was roughly cutting down the old doors when...

    Was just about to buy a new storage heater

    Thanks for that info. All I need to find now is a socket where its not a 3 pin plug. You know the ones where the flex goes straight into the switch. They are actually hard to find. None in B and Q wickes or Homebase!
