so long as the water moisture is not enough to damage the electronics it should work fine. HTH (Ive seen this before as well.. Its just been a while, the newer ones dont normally have this problem IME)
btw.. If this is a relitivly new heater you might want to look into contacting the manaifacture and explaining the moistrure to see if they will provide a replacement.. not that its needed but why take a risk of too much moisture if you dont have to..

its strange because I have another heater (EXACTLY the same), and it doesn't have this problem.

In fact, this heater (with the moisture inside) is more newer.

thanks for the help

like I said.....apart from the water inside the heater, it seems to be working fine (although I just discovered the moisture today)

The water shuoldn't effect the heating coils, but if you were to turn it upside down you may get it in contact with the electronics, which could short it and then you would have a problem. I assume they are built this way and they may be in seprate compartments, but none of mine have broken so I havn't taken one apart yet
