    I seem to have a faulty electric heating element with the air blown carver heater-1996 era :Eeek:
    The blower works on the thermostat with the gas heating side ok.
    There is no reset button--auto.
    It is either the element or the control curcuit board --

    I cannot seem to find a parts supplier or repairer--
    has anyone found a supplier

    Carver was bought out by Truma (I think it was them) a few years ago...you may have more luck searching for Truma

    Problem sorted.
    Removed the motor/fan assb, found a internal reset cut out button which was tripped, because the fan impeller was 90% blocked with 16 years of dust/fluff.
    The elements were overheating because of no airflow.
    Blew it clear with a airline --job done, even better, no money spent:thumb:
