Hi George
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Andy, both of those codes relate to a defective heater.

Use a multimeter to test and replace if necessary.

If the heater is in good condition , Then check the relay on the main circuitboard

I think it tripped the house electrics the other night , is that possible?
Expert:  George-Allsorts replied 1 year ago.

Morning Andy,

Yes, that would be right.. If the element goes open circuit, it is common for it to trip the consumer unit (similar to when a bulb blows).

Once it is open circuit, the pcb can not detect any heat change and therefore throws-up a fault to show this.

Hopefully this has happened without damage to the pcb.
