Hi apprentice, Presumably you have an all electric one. One of the problems with these heaters being at floor level is that they suck in all sorts of crap, the is especially bad if you have a hairy pet.. try removing the heater and check the thermal cut outs to see if they have tripped and clean th...

Kitchen Plinth Heater Suddenly Stopped Working

I've fitted the above into my kitchen floor wood skirting and for some strange reason it suddenly stopped working tonight. It worked perfectly earlier on today. I've slid it out to check, but I must confess I'm not sure what I need to look for to repair. I've added a pic below if it helps. Thank you...

Re: Got a pond / water feature question?

Thank you so much for the advice. I thought I was going to have to fork out for expensive protective tubing. I probably won't do the work until next year, but I'll try to remember to let you know how it works out.

Re: Got a pond / water feature question?

I purchased an electric garden water feature last year and after a few months, the electric leads that I thought I had hidden well under decorative stones to protect them, unfortunately, were chewed to bits by rodents. I'm planning to replace the parts at some point, but this time I want to make sur...

Bosch Logixx 7 washing machine bleeping and won't spin

Can anyone give me any tips on how to solve the above problem, or do I need to call out an engineer? The details are that when I turn the programme dial, the machine immediately starts a continuous bleeping with some of the spin speed lights flashing, but the machine won't start. It's an integrated ...

Bosch Integrated Dishwasher E15 error

Can anyone advise me as to whether or not it's a good idea to try and repair this recurring problem by following a youtube repair video, or replace the dishwasher completely, as the problem is now happening every few months and we've called a Bosch repair mechanic out each time?

However, our back door is UPVC and I'm not sure if it's safe to drill into din the normal way that you'd drill into other surfaces, althou...

Re: Bathroom Wash Basin loose in it's fitting

Hi greek, From your description I assume you have a semi fit countertop basin. This type may have retaining brackets underneath but that does not mean that the installer bothered to use them. If there are no brackets the basin may be just stuck in place using silicone mastic. Regards S Oh Stoneyboy...

Re: Bathroom Wash Basin loose in it's fitting

Thank you. Yes, it is a semi fit and I've looked at the sides where it's now loose and I can clearly see the silicone fixing adhesive. Would you recommend simply applying a fresh amount of adhesive into the loose gaps?? Or should I do something a bit more long lasting?? Please bear with me, I have l...

Bathroom Wash Basin loose in it's fitting

Hi all, Hope someone can point me in the right direction. My washbasin sits flush into the bathroom unit, but just recently has started to move ever so slightly if you lean on it. Is this just a case of re-applying the relevant sealing to secure it? Or do I need to do something more technical? Can s...
