    HAve hot water cylinder that have changed the immersion. However have changed it over still not working. Have 240v going through the element and all seems correct but still no hot water

    You need to test L & N. Or test L to E and then N to E.
    Sounds like a broken Neutral.

    It all started from power cut so a dodgy neutral could happen from that ?

    Depends on the power cut. If you loose Neutral it won't work.

    Did you check the immersion spur switch? Could be loose neutral wire there or can be inside the switch.
    Remember the switch (2 pole) will have 2 switches actually inside and one of them can be faulty.
    Also check at consumer unit or another switch that might be elsewhere.
    Use a multi meter

    Easy way to tell at the stat

    Live to neutral 240
    Live to earth 240

    Then test the element

    Would that still give him 240v to immersion?

    Might be a stupid question but, you have left it long enough to heat up? And turned the immersion stat up?

    Done that and tested the element 19.3

    Left it for 30 mins and was stone cold .

    Must be something deeper caused by power cut
