    Hi all,

    Hoping someone can help me out with these storage heaters. They look pretty old. Cant find any serial numbers on them so not sure if they are on the list of storage heaters which contain asbestos...

    The list doesn't require serial number, only model number.

    You can remove the front cover without disturbing any insulation to find the info.

    Is there nothing under the flap or on the bottom lip next to where the flex enters the heater?

    Yes I agree, I've just removed older looking heaters.

    Often on a label underneath or by main cable input. Should not need to remove cover.

    Looks like the Unidare WMF/S range way too modern for asbestos me thinks.

    My Dimplex NSH's had the label at the bottom with all the wiring and ceramic chock bloc's, very much inside the front cover.
