Does anyone else have problems with ceramics or is it just me. I have one for my rankins dragons. The thermostat tells me its heating because the light is on, however there is no heat coming from it. So I unplugged it and took the heater out to shake gently, to see if there was something broken inside. However nothing rattled. Why isnt it working?!!!!

the light on the thermostat being on is telling you that the thermostat hasn't reached the set temperature. When it reaches it the light will go off.

What happens if you plug the ceramic straight into the plug socket?

The most common problem with ceramics is the contact to the center pin in the holder as they are nos as prominent as light bulbs.
Disconnect the holder from the mains and gently pull the middle contact forward so it will make a better contact to the bulb.
