"Heater Turns Off" Part 2

Here's the solution that I was given first and my answers that follow: Best Solution by Kimi, posted on 26/10/05 First, turn it off. Start by cleaning your filter and making sure your thermostat is turned all the way up. second, it's possible that the pilot may need to be cleaned and /or the pilot is not getting gas to it. Other than this, it would be best to have a technician check out the heater. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1. It's already off and won't turn back on until I hit the reset button on the top. 2. There is no filter to clean 3. There is no thermostat to turn up all the way 4. There is no pilot light 5. It's doesn't use gas, It's electric! Here's a link to the product I would just like to know why this heater turns itself off and I have to hit the reset button???

Re: "Heater Turns Off" Part 2

I had all the same problems. It turned off - still oscillates - no heat. Tried resetting - tried waiting (thought it might reset itself); Final solution ---took it back to Fleer Farm for a full refund even though it was over a year (had kept box & receipt). Honeywell wanted $10 shipping (for a replacement) plus the $10 I needed to ship. Considering I only paid $27.99, we opt'd for the return. I now have a Black/Decker Model 200UH that is built like a tank and keeps my old body reasonably warm in chilly Wisconsin.

How do I get the heater to stay on?

What type of heater? make/model should always be given so we have a fair chance of giving a good answer. In light of a lack of information, I must assume it is a portable electric heater.

Try adjusting the thermostat/temp control and see if it turns on. If it turns on but shuts off after a a minute, you may have it to close to other objects or a wall. The heater output can be blocked or recycled back into the heater which will cause the heater temp control to warm up fast and shut off.

My heater will turn on and operate fine for the first use of the day. It will operate untill the thermostat tells it to shut off, just like it normally would. Once it turns off, it doesnt want to re light....

look depending om heater you should have them serviced every year, especially gas and refrigerated types as they will loose efficiency little heater appliances can be taken to appliance repair agencies but fixed and flued heaters need a service call to your house the supplier of heater should know of service agent for heater if they don't have thier own and i assure you that doing it yearly would be your best option i service heaters and found most problems do stop just with a service of heater plus once cleaned they put out heat the same as if it was new so its important and should be done otherwise you only get half the normal life of heater, just like a car it has moving mechanical parts and operates in ways that over time it will start to deteriate so get it serviced and do it yearly if you want to stay warm!!!!!

Heater turning itself off.

Worked on (and for) Rinnai for many years but not in sales. I have to say the new heaters are much safer. I think you sort of answerred your own query; after 16 years os service I think it best to look at new if you have not already. Spares will likely be rare and, because it's not made anymore, very costly. Might get away with a good service but I still think you would be better of investing that money in new.

My 55,000 btu reddy heater it turns on and runs and pilot light turns on but it's like it doesn't ignite and turns off.

These heaters have a thermal control that requires the unit to get to a preset temperature, before the gas flow valve will stay in and let the heater run steadily.

When you are first starting the heater, it has to have the fan plugged in and you have to hold in the gas valve, and then hit the electronic spark ignitor until the unit lights.

Keep holding the gas valve in for a good 45-60 seconds (or longer) until it will stay in and remain on. Sometimes in really cold weather, these heaters will peroiodically shut off and will have to be relit.

The auto valve used on these gas heaters is designed to shut off the gas, should the flame go out or get blown out,or for any reason. It's a safety feature that can't be overridden nor would you wan to.

If the heater won't stay lit following the proper method, you'll have to remove and clean out the gas inlet/orifice, as it might have a partial obstruction in it. You may have replace the regulator if the orifice is fine, as that's about all there is with these types of heaters.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Pilot is lit but the heater won't fire up

A few things dictate when the main burner turns on. One is a thermocouple not getting hot enough, the other is a bad thermostat ot thermostat wire, and another is the gas valve. First look at the gas valve located on the heater and make sure it is in the On position and not in the Pilot position. Remove your thermostat and jump the two wires together. The heater should light. If not, go back to the gas valve and find the wires up to the thermostat, the should be attached to terminals marked TH and MV or something similar. Jump the terminals. The heater should start. If not, you may need to replace the thermocouple.
