does not heat the heated towel railHeated towel rail, or coil, is a curved metal structure that should provide heating for the bathroom. However, for some reason, due to malfunctions or features of certain models, the coil pipe may remain cold for a long time. Before answering the question why the heated towel rail does not warm, you should decide on its type.

All types of coils, standard and unusual stylized, can be divided into the following categories:

  • models based on a dead-end hot water supply system (DHW);
  • connected to circulating hot water systems;
  • electric models.

Why does a heated towel rail not working on a dead-end DHW system not warm?

Why does the coil in the bathroom connected to the dead-end system not heat? Such models work from the general scheme of water supply and for their operation it is necessary to ensure the access of hot water to the coil pipes.

Such models will be heated only with open hot water taps, so those who are not satisfied with this option, or at constant interruptions with hot water supply, it is recommended to simply change the coil model.

Circulating coils are also connected to the DHW, but not of the dead end, but of the circulating type, thanks to which the pipes are constantly heated by hot water flows.

If the circulation type water towel does not heat it, it may mean that the coil pipes are clogged. In this case, it is recommended to turn off the water, dismantle the device, do not forget to put plugs on the pipes, and flush the coil with a pump or brush on a long wire. Salt deposits are removed by light knocking, and at the final stage it is recommended to clean the pipe with hydrochloric acid solution. The solution is poured inside and left for some time, then rinsed with a jet of water and set the coil in its place.

Another option is a malfunction in the water supply system itself, which only specialists can eliminate.
