Hi you should have from flex of heater a Brn. a Blue & a grn/yel earth to connect to your mains red, blk & grn / yel.
look carefully, as from your info you don't have enough cores to make a circuit. get a torch & find missing wires, regards SPARX

Hi Sparx,
Thank you for your reply, the wires coming from the storage heater are as follows,
i have a Brown Wire
i have a green wire
i have a green & yellow wire

would i be correct in thinking that the brown is live, the green is negative and the green & yellow is the earth??
