Hi @Johnomara .
If you have not already make to check all breakers and switches at the location, to make sure nothing has tripped. If it all looks good, your electrician already checked, make sure to also power cycle the Heat Link if you have not. Turn the power off the the Heat Link for a few minutes and after turn it back on. See if after it has any reaction when you press the button on it.
I’m not close to the unit itself / it’s my dads and he lives alone in another country, and not so tech savvy. All he knows is that the electrician told him it was dead (whilst the thermostat itself is fine). I was wondering if there is any possibility to purchase replacement heat-links? It seems odd that they are not separately available.
You are right, we do not have the units for purchase separately. Each Heat Link comes paired with a display. But I will be able to assist you, no worries @Johnomara .
If possible check to see if they tried to turn the power off and back on, they can ask the electrician if they tried this and let us know.
Also a few more things to check:
thanks for the reply. I believe it was installed a couple of years ago by an approved installer (as part of an initiative by the Irish power company (electric Ireland).
The only message that my dad can tell me is that the thermostat is saying that there is no connection to the heat link. There have been no recent power cuts, etc.
As I said, an electrician has taken a look at it and has not been able to restore the unit: the power going into it is live. The thermostat itself appears to be working.
Thank you for all the information @Johnomara .
