2. I only turned on the storage heating for the first time yesterday and whilst it was warm not totally roasting to touch.I did slight moved the dial to a half extra.
3 The most important bit here is the current setting.Is it wrong or how do i use it.

Night rate hours: 11pm to 8am in wintertime and 12am to 9am in summertime. We are still in summertime at the mo.

Settings: switch it on at the wall.
Input: set to 4.
Output: set to 3 (evening boost)

This will charge overnight and slowly release heat during the day. The heater is really a bunch of blocks that absorb, then release, the heat.

It should never be hot to the touch... unless it has a booster switch as well.

Booster switch: there may be a booster switch of the right hand side of the heater (at right angles to the wall). Switch this on for quick heating. This uses an element so it eats electricity. There may be a dial below it regulating the heat from the booster.

By the way, I haven't started switching on my storage heaters yet this year. Not cold enough. Anyone else?

Nope, leave the wall switch on all the time. If you need heat from now on through the coming weeks, leave it on all the time. Check the side of the radiator for a booster switch, if so turn the booster switch off for now.

But leave the wall one on. It only draws electricity at night.

No switch on the side of the heater.Thanks Wheelie much appreciated help.I will leave at 3 and 4 for now maybe 5 if it gets colder.

Me neither Wheelie, I'll wait another few weeks. In the meantime I have a little heater that can go on for an hour or two when needed.
