Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after 7 months use As others have said, this is poor quality. Mine failed after 7 months of very occassional use. The element has gone open circuit. Unfortunately I bought it a while before fitting it so it is out of warranty. I will be looking elsewhere for a replacement. Junk - dont buy it. Real shame because I have bought tons of stuff from screwfix and it has all been excellent, apart from this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Element Just wanted a low wattage heater element for our small towel rail radiator for use in the summer. This unit looks well made and fitted with ease. Warms the towel rail nicely. Just what the missus wanted and at a good price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed After a Few Days After using this heater for a few days, it started to trip out the RCD. I have had to replace it with another heating element from another company.

Can the element be fitted to the top of a towel rail by removing the plug?

Asked by: Scatter
Hello Scatter, The element needs to be installed at the bottom so that the convection current can fully heat all of the radiator. Thank you for using Q and A, EC.

How much liquid should be in the towel rail.Does it need depressurising after first heat up.

Asked by: wildon
Hello wildon. We always recommend reading the instructions and/or consulting a suitably qualified tradesperson but basically the radiator is filled through the top plug hole until water leaks through the (open) top air vent on the other side. Once everything is tightened there should be no need for any other maintenance. Hope that helps. Thank you for using Q&A MH

short cable length

I bought this to go onto radiator (9904K). the element fits fine, however the cable lengh is only around 1 meter long. What can I use to extend this SAFELY, to reach a power supply outside the room? Heating element controller is not suitable.

Hello Crawford07, Unfortunately Screwfix would be unable to advise you on this query. You would need to seek this information from a suitably qualified tradesperson. Thank you for using Q&A.
