Default Re: Espar Replacement

Well my brain to my espar heater went out last year. Now the brain which is attached to the heater is proprietary to Westfalia. The heater did not work at all. I got a new brain from a place in the Portland Or. area. The new brain will not work with the proprietary Westfalia temp controller however. I bought for 100 bucks a Espar D1000 thermostat. I had to change the wiring harness to match the wires. Not hard, there all color coded. Now it works and the new controller has a diagnostic function and the ability to reset the heater if it has a fault. This may work for you if your heater is essentially good but the brain is not. Total project cost about 500 dollars. The brain is not that cheap. An Espar service place could easily do this. hope this helps.
