The heater is controlled by a valve in the water line so it can take a while to cool down after moving to blue, however it has been know for the wire to become detached, if you can get someone to move the knob while you look under the bonnet you should be able to see the wire moving, The valve is in a vertical piece of heater hose about 25mm dia located under the header tank.
