Washing machine drum full of water

Hello all, I last used the Indesit washer/dryer 3 days ago. This afternoon I was going to fill the drum with laundry but it was full of water. I used a sponge and bucket to empty it and thought I would have a look at the pump pre-chamber to see if anything was stuck in there. It was clean and clear ...

Setting an External Light to Come on at a Certain Time

Hello, I have an external light that I turn on when it gets dark outside. The switch is in the Hallway. I am going away for a couple of days, is there a gadget I can use to make the light turn on at a certain time and off at a certain time? The light is not operated by PIR motion detector, I have on...

Re: Circuit Breaker Replacement for Wall Heater in Kitchen

Re: Circuit Breaker Replacement for Wall Heater in Kitchen

Thank-you for the detailed reply very informative. So I still have 2 storage heaters, 1 in the lounge and 1 in the hall which I will carry on using. In the bedroom I have a convection heater that can turn on when I want. This was my plan in the Kitchen too. In the kitchen where I took the old storag...

Re: Circuit Breaker Replacement for Wall Heater in Kitchen

I waited up last night until the low rate electricity started and saw that the heater I fitted in the Kitchen did come on. So the circuit breaker is fine. However I want to be able to turn the heater on during the day if and when needed and not for it to come on at night. Is there any way I can do t...

Re: Small Panel Heater or Oil Filled Radiator for use in Bedroom

Thank-you Eric, what an amazing reply that was, very educational. I should have explained in my first post that I do not like heaters on when I am in bed as I warm up very quickly and even use a summer duvet in the Winter. I just want to be able to set the heater to come on for 1 hour twice a day (m...

I am going to buy a property in South Wales, probably Glamorgan, Carmarthenshire, Brecon, Pembrokeshire and usually go for a brick and block cavity wall and concrete tile type property.

Loud Extractor Fan

I have moved into a new home on the top floor. In the Kitchen there is an extractor fan, normally there is no noise when it is turned off but when the wind blows it makes a loud noise of the wind whistling down the metal tubing. Now I am sure it is silly and maybe dangerous to cover the outlet compl...

Galvanised water tank

I am buying a 1968 built flat and had a survey done. Just read the report and 1 point noted was that there are Galvanised water tanks in the loft. The surveyor recommended that the tanks are changed for plastic ones. I can't get hold of the surveyer yet so thought I would ask here. Is it a health is...

Re: Gas central heating or electric night stoarge heating

Thank-you for that detailed reply. It turns out the flat I was going to buy has a short lease and problems associated with it. The flat I have had an offer accepted on and arranged a survey on does not have gas in the block which was built on the late 60's. It has electric storage heating so I will ...

I am buying a 1960's flat that needs totally refurbishing and I was hoping someone with experience could tell me the most economical way to go, all electric or gas and electric?
