Hi all,

I have a client who has burned himself rather badly on an old storage heater..think its a Creda one and they want me to confirm if the heater is faulty or not.

I took a look at it and the first thing I found was the DP switch was reverse polarity so it would of been switching the neutral...as I understand it the input stat would of still worked and the thermal overload cut out should of still worked?

I have isolated it for now but am planning on returning, connecting it to the 24/7 supply, letting it heat up for a couple of hours then taking a measurement of the casing temperature. Does anyone know what the max temperature should be of a storage heater?

Thanks
Terry
