It may be inside and reset automatically when the whole heater as cooled
right down. If you problem happened more than a day ago then it will be a
power off and dismantle job. The sensor could well be near the element eg
inside the firebricks.
Need more information about what "tripped the power" really means and
what you where doing to trip it.
Storage heaters are normally wired on spurs from a second consumer
unit that is fed via the time switch such that it is only live during
the "off peak" period. Ones with blowers will have another permenatly
live supply possibly from the ring main or a dedicated circuit for the
heater blowers. This will be in the main CU.

you do not give any details such as make or model. Consequently the
action to be taken
is not certain. As stated by other posters when the unit has cooled you may
need to distamnatle the unit. Some older units such as Creda had a thermal
cur out which was on the top right hand side when the cove is removed. I
have had to replace these from time to time
Let us know how you get on - more information is useful.
Actually on another point it would be useful if there was a site which
gave models and typical faults. Such data use top exist in the Radio & TV
world (and may still be around in this electronic age)
