Bought a brand new OFR from an ebay shop with good feedback........it lasted a couple of weeks and then went cold,changed the fuse and not that.Tried it in other plugs,not that.
Anyway the guy sent me a replacement,put it on last night for a short time and ok put irt on tonight and it warmed up well but when I went back in the room it was stone cold.really fed up,have emailed him asking for a refund.
What could be wrong with them ??
It sounds like something right up Volty's street. The trouble is when you want a sparks you can never find one.

Most have a thermal fuse, it's that which has gone ,but the heating element may also have failed,as well as the thermostat, IT'S JUNK, GET YOUR MONEY BACK.
I don't know if you have ever dealt with some of the cowboys on ebay but that is often easier said than done.

I wouldn't buy modern electrical stuff from ebay because all the approved gear has proper sales channels with recommended retail prices.
If you can buy it cheaper it isn't going to be legitimate. In the case of the heaters they are probably unbelievably cheap Chinese or Italian junk, neither country can turn out safe electrical heating appliances. Argos may be the best place for such things, a local supplier with good prices and enforceable warranty. I now prefer Amazon, a very honorable supplier.

To be fair he did send a new one the following day and he sells thousands of items with good feedback.
Will see how round 2 goes.
