Well you guys were great with advice for my last questions, so I thought I would post this on here as well as the Hymer Technical section on Faceache, not sure on how to upload pictures as they speak a thousand words but in brief, we had a problem with the combi gas water/heater, initially worked for water and heating as long as the water was full, then water only, now nothing.

 

So I started to do some testing and reading, found three faulty thermistors on the wiring harness and started taking the heater apart to gain access, it ended up stripping the entire heater to bits to get the harness off, which apparently is obselete, so I am trying to track down the thermistors to repair the harness, otherwise it's big bucks for a new heater, on a side note I read somewhere and trying to find more details about an electric element you can add to the heater to get heating when on hook up?

 

I have learned far more than I ever thought I needed to know about camper combi heaters but it has been interesting 😉

 

Any guides to uploading photos?

I'd have thought you will source the thermistors from either RS components of maybe Farnell.

The electrical element conversion was I believe never that efficient on that heater and I doubt you'll be able to find the necessary parts new anyway, if you have your heart set on doing it have a look on eBay Germany there is often a few on there.

For uploading pictures the easiest way is to have the picture you want in a place on your computer that you can easily find and then using either the " Attach files  or  Insert photos"
links below this reply box, you simply point to the picture location and click, the software does the rest for you.

My combine water heater only runs on gas or 240 v only, my old moho was the same for water and blown air. Didn’t know they did one that ran on 12v, good luck with finding ya parts.

Al, I think you have misunderstood the OP, he is referring to the 230 volt option on the heater, not 12 volt.
Your Combi is a totally different animal to the older C 3402

No he wants it for hook up. 

Sorry Griff, it’s all black magic to me.
