Hi , the overheat safety stat may have activated. Turn off the power at fused spur for ten minutes then back on .
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

Hi - it cant have overheated because it has been switched off at the mains for 24 hours. I haven't used the fire for heating just for the light effect. It used to turn on intermittently but now it doesn't work at all.

Hi , have you replaced the bulbs?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.
Yes, also the fan does not go round.
Plumberpro, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago.
Hi, do you have power going to the fan
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.
How would I know?
Plumberpro, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago.
You would need to use an electrical multimeter tester. Otherwise we won't be able to track down the faulty part
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

I have an electrical multimeter tester - where do I need to check for power to the fan and llghts?

Plumberpro, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago.
At the connection, either at the components themselves or at the pcb
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

I am sorry, but this answer is a bit a ambiguos. Can you be more specific about how I identify where the positive and negative connection points are?

Told me what I already new.... need a more specific reply
Plumberpro, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago.
Use the multimeter leads on each connector, it won't harm if you get them the wrong way round.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

I realise that but if I dont know which connection should have power and which shouldnt - will be no further forward.

Plumberpro, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago.

If there is no power you will get no reading , if there is you will. Look I'm going to opt out as I don't want to play games and I'm sure you don't either. I think its best to get an appliance electrician in , otherwise you are going to find yourself replacing expensive parts that you don't need . all the best

Customer reply replied 2 years ago.

Thanks Toby, I agree - we are going round in circles and I would not want to buy parts that I don't need.

Plumberpro, Home Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago.
It most probably Is the PCB , but think its worth getting it properly tested , take care , all the best
