I have a Creda night storage heater model number 79161c. The problem i have is that am unable to turn the heat down, it is flat out all the time unless i unplug from the mains. i have turned the dials down to 1 for the heat and 1 for the output but nothing works.

The temperature of the heat stored is controlled by a thermostat.
The amount of heat released is controlled by a mechanical flap.

It sounds like the thermostat is stuck shut.
Turn the power off, remove the outer case of the heater and turn the heat control. You should see/hear the stat open and close or use a meter to confirm the operation. If it doesnt operate then it probably needs replacing.

You can get the spare part here: http://www.storageheater.co.uk/Models/Creda/79141C.htm

But at £50+ for the stat you may be better off with a complete new heater,.

Anyone on this great forum know how where the reset switch is on a Creda TSR24AW storage heater is please?

I've looked on YouTube and there's great videos on there demonstrating how it's done, but when I opened my heaters panel, I was unable to locate anything that looks like a reset switch!

Your help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
