    Electric Towel Heater. Should have got the instruction book.

    I bought an Electric Towel Heater from Focus and there were no instructions. Fitted it and it dosent work.
    The thought occured, should I have filled it with water as there may be an element inside which warms the water.
    One for sale on the internet (but may not be the same) says it can be used either with the central heating or electricity.
    Certainly a shortage of fitting instructions dosent help.

    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      Have you a multimeter? You need to check the continuity of the element. It should be approximately (240^2/wattage) ohms. If it is now open circuit, it was either duff when you bought it, or did require water, and has now burnt itself out.

      Either way, it's fit for the tip, as I think Focus have ceased trading haven't they?

        If its suitable for both then I think it needs to be filled.

        I have bought one that is electric only and is already filled with water.

        You can get some electric only dry ones

          It should say on the box whether it's a dry radiator or a wet radiator. If it's dry then no liquid is required. Stand alone electric wet rads are usually oil filled to avoid rusting.
          There is always scope for misinterpretation.

          If my posts can be interpreted in two ways, one that makes you feel angry and one that doesn't, I meant the latter.

          Everyday is an opportunity to learn something new.
