reset immersion water heater

Hi, I hope someone out there can help me. I have Thermtec immersion electric heater used in my boiler. It has a resettable cutout. This activated in the night and the heater has stopped heating the water.
Its a bit of a hassle, has happened once and the plumber can fix in 10 min. The plumber however takes 3 days to come over.
Can anyone tell me how to reset this so that the heater starts working again?
I have attached the picture of the heater button/dial.

Re: reset immersion water heater

You must have checked for 'continuity'.
The problem might be with the bimetallic thermostat under the ceramic casing.
Sometimes, some 'coating' develops on the contacts thereby opening up the circuit. just scrape it off with some blade/knife.
I've sometimes faced this problem with my steam iron!
Or, the heating coil is gone!

Re: reset immersion water heater

before u attempt anything...completely take out the haeter's plug from mains supply...

next...check the user manual..if it says...no user servicable parts inside...then leave the heater alone

as rational pai said...check the thermostat...apart from white residue (you call it carbon) there is possibility of thermostat getting bad...if the scraping doesnt work then its time to buy a new thermostat...also check for the physical condition of thermostat..sometimes due to corrosion ( i can see that a lot in pic) the thermostat cracks and disturbs the continuity of circuitory...apart from that...there is nothing you can do...

i dont see any electronic circuitry involved that can be reset....that reset light which flashed y'day night shows some discontinuity in circuit and most probably culprit is thermostat....check for any inbuilt fuses that blew off...check its user manual or the companies site for the heaters anatomy....

Re: reset immersion water heater

Thank you Vyomkesh. This one is a new heater. As i said, it has a resettable circuit to avoid water over boiling. It simply needs to be reset but I dont know how.

if you can give us the make and model of your heater we may be able to get the right solution for u...normally reset circuit is placed in position that is easily accessible...u wont have to strip down components to look for it...give us a few more shots of your heater + make n model of your heater

Vyomkesh, I will have to get those details later today. The boiler is from Thermtec, I dont remember the model or make.
