The switches seems to be the weak spot, if they don't seize they just don't come on. Pop it out with a fine screwdriver and unplug it. Replace it when you get a chance (scrap or new).

From my 760 handbook :



The way that sounds, it measures the ambient temperature when the bum-warmers are switched on and then heats by the right amount then switch off. Could explain the more random operation of mine!

Does the switch's "On" light remain lit at all times when the switch is in the "On" position whether or not the heater is actually heating? Mine does.

Yes Ian - it's a bit like the immersion heater switch at home, it might be on but it might have stopped heating because the water is hot enough.
