Would that still give him 240v to immersion?Did you check the immersion spur switch? Could be loose neutral wire there or can be inside the switch.
Remember the switch (2 pole) will have 2 switches actually inside and one of them can be faulty.
Also check at consumer unit or another switch that might be elsewhere.
Use a multi meter
Might be a stupid question but, you have left it long enough to heat up? And turned the immersion stat up?HAve hot water cylinder that have changed the immersion. However have changed it over still not working. Have 240v going through the element and all seems correct but still no hot water
I used to subby for Kingspan , in my experience they work or they dont , I have put them in with ridiculously low or high readings and they still work.Any reason? I thought this proved if the element was good or not?
Good idea thatI used to subby for Kingspan , in my experience they work or they dont , I have put them in with ridiculously low or high readings and they still work.
If anything if they didnt read right they tended to be noisy , poor insulation I think .
Golden rule with any immersion heater as the ultimate test , wire it up to a plug and put it in a socket, if it works you look towards stat, programmer , spur switch etc etc.
240V/19ohm = 12amp, not 12kW. Power = 240^2/19 = 3kW, about right for an immersion.if the immersion is 19 odd ohm then thats around 12 ish KW which means it ok. I would be looking at the integrity if the wiring. The golden rule with electrical work is knowing what your doing
