    Hi,

    I have 1 storage heater not working. I have taken the cover off but can't find any burnt or melted wires or plastic. The thermostat doesn't click at all so i'm wondering if thats the problem. I've read other threads on the forum to get an idea of what might be wrong and what I'm looking at as a starter. I have checked my other storage heaters and the thermostats click on all of them. Looking at it (on the top of the heater, it doesn't look too difficult to replace.

    Any thoughts

    Turn the power of to the heater and have a look at the thermostat contacts. They may be welded together, it does happen.
    You are right, the stat should click. You can get spares from a number of on line places (Google "Creda Storage radiator spares"). Easy to replace.

    If the contacts have welded together there is a good chance that the overheat thermostat has tripped. For Dimplex heaters at least the control thermostat and overheat thermostat often come as a kit, and both should be replaced.

    Do you have a multimeter? If you do it will be straightforward to test each of the parts with the power off.
