Calor gas heater problem

Hi..
I have a Radiant 2.4kwh portable fire for my shed however I need to replace the 3 section mantle.
(I think that's what they are called)
Does anyone know if these items can be had? Looked pretty much everywhere to no avail.
Regards

I doubt that you would be able to find parts available now for these. Might be better to find a replacement or for parts on auction sites. I used to work for Calor Eng, you could try serching Valour or Cavagna for parts to see what comes up.

Do you mean something like this:

This is for a light BTW, I'm just trying to figure out if we're talking about the same thing.

Not what I'm thinking of , not actually sure what that is :D. 3 section Mantle to me would be the ceramic element of the fire.

@morgans Those radiants on ebay look like mains gas fire parts not calor gas. Proceed with caution. Personally I wouldn't be replacing parts as a diy job. I believe "Gas Safe" applies to portable appliances too.

Agreed, they were for "illustration purposes only"

You can still buy 4.2kW radiant heaters, I'd contact the Calor shop and ask if they do spares or can recommend a local repair shop : Calor help and advice

Cool, or should that be "hot" :clap:

Would seem funny in this modern age but when we moved into our first home we used a couple of Calor portables for our heating. Fires were cheap purchased through calor and bottles were 40 or 50p a time . Ridiculous situation now I give you . Best Company i ever worked for .
