    I use a standalone Electric Heater just to heat the room where I'm sitting as i'm working up in the attic/loft so its cold at this time of year!

    However this has suddenly stopped working for some reason?

    I have changed the 13A fuse as a precuation but still nothing?

    The heater did fall over on its side if that helps? (it sits on the floor upright) but not sure if that warrants it not working?
    It has been fine ever since this period? - any ideas if I can do anything myself?

    Have uploaded pics if they are any help. The heating element is all at one side, I think these are prettty common heaters but slid my phone into the top facing down to take a picture.

    Unplug and allow to cool down, might just be an overload switch kicked in(?)

    Then it sounds like perhaps a plastic connection has broken from the impact.

    Is it easy enough to fix yourself? or do you think something may have come loose?

    Find the problem if you can and post a photo for answers to that.

    Here’s some photos of it helps. Not easy to get into the unit as it’s sealed.

    so not sure it’s much help
