Re: German Fire

Thank you Enrique. That´ll do me.

I had just wanted to double check as I have confidence in the German side of things but always worry that Spanish side of things might not just be quite up to scratch.

But nice to hear that on this occasion they are. Well done Spain.

German Fire

Hi I wonder if anyone could give me the benefit of their knowledge. A family member has offered to give me an electric fire which they bought whilst living in Germany and now no longer need. Before saying yes, I just wondered whether it would firstly, work in Spain and secondly, be safe. I assume th...

How Do You Spend Your Days?

Hi

After reading post about people being more sociable or not.....as the case may be, I am just curious to know how British ex pats generally pass their days on a day to day basis. Are they bored or fed up or busy and always on the go?

Re: Delivery by MRW

Hi Gerry I didn´t realise they were Franchises. I suppose that explains things then really. I assume the office doing my "non-delivery" was the one located in "Coin". They do seem to be very hit and miss with the emphasis on the "miss". I don´t suppose it is worth compl...

Delivery by MRW

Hi Just wondering if anyone else has come across this. An order from Amazon UK was estimated to be delivered on Monday 26th Aug. Fine so far, no problem. Then on the "track your parcel" page of your order, it read, "customer requested change of delivery date". I wasn´t entirely f...

Re: Heated Towel Rail

Hi McT Thank you soo much for going to all the trouble of explaining how to repair the Heated Towel Rail. A friend has taken the towel rail off the wall and removed what I think is the "thermostat" (you know the part that has the "on/off" switch and the "maximum/minimum"...

Re: Heated Towel Rail

Hi McT Thank you for your advice. I am very appreciative. Unfortunately Towel Rail still not fixed. I think I have resigned myself to just buying another. I think the actual element inside the towel rail is OK it is just the control panel (is that the thermostat!!!!!! not sure) - if I could just buy...

Re: Heated Towel Rail

Hi Chrissie,

Me again. Sorry. Disregard that last post. I have just re-read your post and realised what you were saying ie. that Algorel, Aki, etc are the Stockists so Algorel of course not the manufactuer. I feel a bit of an idiot now. But never mind. Thank you anyway.

Heated Towel Rail

Hi I wonder if anyone would be able to advise. I bought a heated towel rail from Leroy Merlin a little over two years now and all has been well. However, yesterday, just before jumping into the shower, I went to put the heater on and .......nothing. Well, not exactly nothing, the the button suddenly...

Re: Washing Machine Repair

Hi Spanish Lad

Yes it does make the same noise and doesn´t drain on whatever programme you use. That was interesting to read about the pump you got on ebay though.
