In the past month i've moved from the Chch CBD out North-West. I don't really feel like bugging my landlord as there are bigger issues right now in Chch, but does any one have any ideas about how I can get my heater working for more than 2 minutes at a time. I've done everything from turn it right down to about 15oC but still no joy..

I would get an electrician to look at it, could be overheating internally, causing it to shut off.
The last thing you want to do is override anything....

illicit: could be overheating internally, causing it to shut off.

I wondered that, it appears to be quite hot to touch yet bugger all heat seems to come from it... Will get onto the landlord then..

First up don't touch inside that.....

Yeah get an electrician in to check it all over.
That's quite old gear so it may be stuffed.

You might even want a different sort of heater anyway if you are paying the power bill.

Those Honeywell thermostats are fairly bullet proof, I would suspect that the Skope heater has burnt out or developed a short and is overheating.
