Hi my name is ***** ***** are you refering to the thermostats or the NTC sensors?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
ntc
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 8 months ago.

At 25 Centegrade the reading should be around 19.5K ohms

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I am getting 24k at about 12C so that would seem to be right.
will fit and retest to see if I get heat. Have replaced heater. Any other suggestions to try if still not heating? many thanks
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 8 months ago.

Have you checked the mechanical thermostats on the heater and near the heater, you should have continuity through them and are you getting any power to the heater?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
continuity on one with reset, 30K on other (both on heater assembly) so I assume the 30K reading is a fault? (its new part)
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 8 months ago.

Check it is a thermostat rather than a NTC thermistor ~ power to heater?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
the 30k is wired independent of power supply to heater, reset is on power to heater
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
no power to heater. heater shows 130ohm across it
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
will test reservoir switch later - nursery run now
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
all working now. The new heater had come with the wiring reversed into the socket (as I have now found out) and the plugs were on a very short lead in the machine (couldn't see the wires) and at the time I didn't think it should be possible to locate plug in socket incorrectly - I was wrong. luckily all seems well. many thanks for your input!
