    I'm having to use the rather old immersion heater for hot water as my DHW from the boiler has a leak.

    Can anyone tell me what type of immersion heater this is? see photo. I assume it's non-thermostatic but that it does have some kind of safety cut-out? Does that mean it will heat the water to 75degreesC!!!!

    All it says on the case is Redring and BS3456. imm heater.jpg

    Don't want to change it as it's just a temporary measure. Just want to make sure it's safe and won't overheat.

    Back on topic.

    That's not a safety stat that's the control stat.

    It's either fixed temp or the adjustment is on the side where it's pushed into the pocket.
