Bathroom Heater Switch


Nothing happens when I turn on the switch for my bathrom heater. I just checked the breaker box and it is fine. Does this mean I need a new switch?

Not necessarily.
  • Bad switch
  • Loose/broken/open wiring connection
  • Heater element open
  • Over-temp safety switch needs to be reset.
  • How did you test the breaker?
