Is there any sign of life from any of the heaters?Also are they on the same circuit in your mains box?

No no life
Separate fuses in one box

Switches haven't trip enough
Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Hi Ian, do you have a meter for testing the power at various locations?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No
I'm afraid not
Is it worth buying one
Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Hi Ian, well, that depends, if you want to locate the source of the trouble you would need one or even a cheap test light will work for this.
If you aren't getting power to any of the heaters then the issue is at a junction box or at the mains.

4th storage heater working this morning
Other 3 not
Expert:  Michael replied 2 years ago.
Hi Ian, are these all in the same building?
Also did this start working on its own?
Usually this is problem if they all fail, and are different units there is a fault in the electrical wiring (a bad connection) and that is common). Its common because the heaters draw a lot of current and if there is a loose connection somewhere that will cause this for sure.
Please trace all the wiring to find this fault.
I will stick with in you will rate at this point.
Thanks Ian.
