I have a night storeage/combi (with elec convector) heater.
One side is cold - i think an element has gone.
How do i take off the front?
The screws in the top have a sign - do not remove till bricks have
been removed so i think that is not the way in!
It is a Newlec combi with two dials on the top right.
Thanks for any help.
They usually hook over at the top and have screws at the bottom facing
upwards so you may need a stubby screwdriver. You should then see
another metal panel with visible screws which you undo. There will be an
insulating panel behind the metal one followed by the bricks. If it is a
modern one the element will be a bent sheathed element screwed into a
heat resistant terminal block at the bottom. Check the terminal block
connections as they may just be loose.
Do isolate the circuit at the consumer unit as well as switching off at the
