The Problem:

My heater blower is constantly ON at FULL power even though controller switch isn't on!

Fuse is fine, had to unplug unit to stop.

Is this something can fix at home or do I have to book into a garage?

the heater control rheostat has shorted out. have come across this fault a few times. locate and remove, and you will probably smell burnt plastics and copper.hope this helps!!! let me know!!!
