Thank you, it may have been this although it was stored in its original package so would be a shame. Thanks for your help

No issues then?

 

Also, how was it stored and where? Did you dry and clean it before storage? How was the cord stored? (wrapped around the heater, folded up, or just left loose?)

No worked perfectly then!

Yes it was cleaned and air dried before storing, the cord was folded.

I am thinking that might be the issue. You should make sure it's unplugged and remove it from the tank. A crimped cord could have broken wires and become a fire hazard.

Okay thank youu ChelseaM. That's so annoying!! It is now unplugged, thank you for your help :)

No problem.

Sorry that it isn't useable anymore. :(

As a tip for the future, always try to store your cords in a 'lasso' shape to prevent these types of things. Also remember to only wrap the middle of the cord, so that the plug and machine-connection don't get crimped.
