OK so it's not the thermostat. In fact I think the thermostat is the only thing that's working OK.

The immersion heater is dead... and I suspect that sometime this morning as the wornout copper finally ruptured allowing water and electricity mixed there was a tiny "CRACK!" as the timer got taken out by the death throws of the heater.

 
 

At least I know what's wrong and what needs replacing, the timer and the heater. Timer easy, heater easy if it comes out of the tank OK. Sprayed it with WD40 and scratched of all the corrosion tonight, hopfully that'll help. 

I bet [info]geodhinn will be amused I'm blogging what must be an extreamly basic job for him.

We have heat that's on a separate circuit. And after half a day of going to 4 DIY stores we have hot water too :-)

Thats because they saw you coming armed with the old immersion heater in your hand! They quickly hid all the new ones just so you would have to visit all the shops and have something to rant about as well.!
Have you seen Moses since you screwed the thing back up? Can you hear a muffled distant meiow? You know how they love to explore new holes and climb into them!

What is it about my underpants? You're not the only person to have run off with a pair.
