Recommended Posts

hi hope someone can help? the warm air on my blown air heating nolonger gets warm, it still blows out air but only cold, the thermostat works ok and it works ok with gas, but no heat on 240v, according to the handbook, there is a nonuser trip on the heater element that has to be reset/replaced by a dealer, I have a 96 abbey stafford, that uses a carver system! I know these are nolonger made, can anyone help with this problem or point me in the right direction. many thanks tracy :huh:

My previous caravan was a 96 Elddis with a Carver heater and it used to trip out quite often. There is an overheat switch on the unit which just needs to be pushed to be reset. I used to have to remove the drawer above the heater and reach in. The switch was located at about 11 o'clock on the outside of the heater frame. Once you know where it is it is easy, but for the first time you may need to look inside with a torch and a mirror

 

Hope this helps

It depends on when the 'Fanmaster' was produced as to if it has the re-set switch or a 'one shot' thermal fuse. If it has the reset then I would say it is in 4 o'clock position as you look over the top!! and under a 'finger' of plastic which when pressed will reset it. If the switch is there the finger will hardly move but if not then it will move as far as you can push it and the fuse will need repairing as reset upgrades kits are now difficult to get hold of.

My sister has just rang to tell me that the heater on her Elddis Illusion 96 stopped working this morning, it sounds like the same fault. Could anyone tell me if a heater of this age would have a reset switch or fused link? I know that it will work on gas, but she is not keen on gas ( thinks it's going to explode ) women are funny about these things. I find it easier just to agree, rather than argue the point.

Any advise would be helpful.

I can only say it's more likely to have the reset than not, what I can say with more certainty is a properly maintained gas system is just as safe as electric in this situation. ..perhaps more so!
