    Hello all,

    Sorry for posting yet another post about this.

    My heater/blower seems to have a mind of its own, blows at min then max then min then max, sometimes changes within seconds or can take a few minutes to change.
    Changing temp up or down does nothing. Ive worked out from reading on your site that its probably the Final stage resistor that needs replacing (am i right)

    How can i find out which part number to buy before i take out the broken one, also anyone know the best place to buy one, please.

    Any help would be great.
    Thanks.

    It was a bit of a fiddle to get the old on out (it's twice as long), but worth it. Mine has the same symptoms as yours and now works a treat...
