Blog > Storage heater hot at top, cold at bottom

I recently bought a second hand unidare wmx712 storage heater to replace an ancient storage heater in the house we just moved in to.

It appears to be working just fine however when it has charged overnight only the top half of the casing is hot, the bottom half is cool to the touch.

It can’t be that an element has gone as I would expect one side to be hot and other cool, rather than top and bottom.

I have checked the output flap and it is closed when set to closed so it’s unlikely to be that either.

Any idea why this may be, or would this behaviour be expected from these storage heaters?

Thanks in advance for any replies,

John
