The heating takes an extremely long time to get to a reasonable temperature. How can I test the heating elements to ensure they are working and if required how easy would this be to rectify/replace? Also the fans (regardless of heat setting) only kicks in when positioned at level 4.

Do you
have the same problem?

The two hoses are on the firewall, you do need to stretch a bit.
