Rated 1 out of 5Â by Davefix Absolute rubbish.
Generally pleased with Screwfix products but this is rubbish. Fitted into towel rail and after 2 hours could not tell if it was working or not. Purchased replacement and fitted that, same problem. Went to another supplier purchased and fitted their element and within 15 mins of turning on we had heat. I should have read the reviews first. Two elements will be going back tomorrow. Doesn't compensate me for time and travel though.

I bought this element to go with an 1100 x 600 towel radiator. Out of the box the element shroud was discoloured with glue? When I went to fit the element I realised that it had no nut around the base so the only way to do it up would be by hand or with a set of grips which could cause damage. When I did the element up by hand the shroud came loose. When it was installed it did not warm up quick enough and seemed to be to low powered for this size of radiator,
I have given it a low rating because the faults with the shroud coming loose and the fact that the shroud came away.

Element did not work when installed, a replacement was quickly arranged by Screwfix customer services and collected from local store - and that didn't work either! Third item was delivered rapidly and happily it functioned properly; it had a different date stamp on the box so perhaps came from a different batch? Anyhow, on balance not recommended; the product was bad but the Screwfix support was good.

I bought element for a customer. After replacing the radiator, told customer it was good practise to replace the heater element, which did not work after fitting, so went back to Screwfix and told them, but had to buy another element to replace the faulty one, then hopefully refunded for faulty one, have not fitted the new element yet.
